India is the land of yogis and spiritual teachers. People from all around the world came here in search of peace and salvation through spiritual teachers. These teachers are also in demand in foreign lands where they are invited to share their believes and there they also teaches the ways to connect to god. This demand helps in booming of God men in India( don't forget the money involved in all this).
The concept of mediator between God and believers is as old as the concept of god itself. These few peoples(pandits,maulvis,priests,etc) claims to hold the sole responsibility to make people connect to god. With years this trade flourishes more than any other trade in the world as a result these middlemen soon became self proclaimed God man as influx of money in this trade is beyond any economic crises. They also became source of political power. Political parties used them to strengthen their vote banks,they are also used to keep black money by politicians and industrialists,they illegally send people from one country to another behind their truth speech delivery programme,their places in many cases becomes hideout for anti-social elements.
These so called God men uses religion as a shield to hide their ill deeds ,there are many cases like Swami Bhimanand, Swami Pramanad, Gulzar Ahmad Bhat, Swami Nityanand,Asaram Bapu,Nirmal Baba,Baba Ramdev and many more who were involved in many cases of sexual assaults ,rape,possession of illegal property,murders,extortion's,etc. Even after such big allegations they move freely in the society due to people who blindly follows them and consider them as God. Politicians remain silent in such issues as they need these good people for their political gains.
The clause of equality before law fails in front of such people of high social status which further decreases trust in already paralyzed judicial system. We go to these people in search of god as we are afraid of Him and pay huge sum of money to wash away our sins. It's time that we start to love god,this love will remove all our fears related to Him and make us more closer to him so that a requirement for a middleman will not be there. God resides in his creations and not in temples and mosques,respect and care for his creations,He will care for you.

"Prabhakar,"said minister Ram Bharose to his secretory,"election are near now,what is the plan?".
"Sir! it's time we visit some villages in our area for vote appeal,your speeches are also ready,which date should I fix? Which village you will visit first?" Prabhakar replied confidently.
"Choose a village which is the most developed in my constituency",proudly said Ram Bharose.
"Sir,this is your constituency there is no chance of development."
"Hmm! we will visit Bijlipur,call local party office there to make all arrangements and don't forget to send Bijli (electricity) before us", he again sat relaxed on his chair.
Ram Bharose is very experienced,he is winning from this constituency from last 20 years,he knows all the tricks of the trade and since nothing has changed much,he is sure to win this time also.
Prabhakar on the other hand is busy in preparations for minister's visit. He telephoned local party office for arrangements for minister's visit. All departments were alerted about his visit. Roads were cleaned,water board opened 24 hours water supply,electricity is available day and night,light bulbs were fixed on poles,school building was repaired,food was distributed to poor people free of cost. All those things which was never taken care of were up to date now,even a song was prepared in his praise to be sung by school kids who now owns new uniforms.
" Sir,everything is finalized we have to go there tomorrow", " Prabhakar how much it costs", " nothing sir! only few promises for promotions for local officials."
Ram Bharose was confident when he visited Bijlipur. He repeated his old speech of last elections with addition of some fresh promises. After ending the speech he said" what else do you want? I am always ready." An old man from the audience stood up and said," Sir! I request you for more visits in our village."

Above incidents are fictive but that doesn't mean they are imaginary,these things happens and are happening in our country daily. We got our independence from Britishers on 15th August 1947 and since then we are still struggling for freedom. Freedom from our age old thinking,freedom from caste system,freedom from corruption,etc. Where some people are exploiting freedom of others,many people don't enjoy freedom at all.
Citizen of this country are still not able to work at a place of their choice,they can't marry of their will,they can't practice religion they wants,girls still feels unsafe,they can't wear clothes of their choice,schedule castes and tribes are still exploited,medical and judicial facilities are out of reach of the common man. Those with power don't let others function honestly and correctly.
Some misuse freedom by curbing other's freedom,they don't follow traffic rules creating problems on road,play music at loud noise disturbing neighbours,spit in public places making city dirty,intervene in other's privacy and so on.We all have to think about that and change the way we think to inculcate real freedom in ourselves so that we can safeguard and let other enjoy their freedom too and remember never to loose hope that everything will be fine one day.
