Former Dean of Academic Affairs of Delhi-based Institute of Social Sciences and Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak, Prof. Surendra Kumar told that there are two reasons behind the low turnout, one is that there was no enthusiasm among the people like in 2019. In the last elections, issues like nationalism and surgical strikes were prevalent, due to which people went to the polling stations. The second big reason was the heat this time. Especially the sick and elderly have refrained from voting. He told that old trends and researchers said that the result of more or less voting has been mixed. Anyone can gain or lose. It is certain that the results on June 4 may be shocking. The way there was an anti-incumbency wave against the ruling party, it seems that the BJP may have to suffer losses.

During the war of Mahabharata, Kaal in the body of Shri Krishna had told Arjuna that do not wish for the result, you have sweets (laddu) in both of your hands because if you win then you will get the kingdom of Hastinapur and if you lose, you will die and then you will go to heaven. In today’s context also, the same things said in the past have the same meaning. When the ruling party has been in power from the last ten years and is confident that on the strength of its work it will get to remain in power for five more years, then there is no need to worry much. The king and his people should pay attention to their deeds and should not wish for the results but should keep doing good deeds so that neither they have to suffer for their sins nor cause pain to anyone through their bad deeds.

Watch a full episode of discourse by Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj on Kaal Brahm and Arjun’s discussion during the war of Mahabharata on Satlok Ashram YouTube Channel. It will help you to decide the better king for the nation and to reduce the sins of an individual.
