The Sunday (August 17, 2014) meeting of both Chief Ministers of Telugu States Chandrababu Naidu and Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao in the presence of ESL Narasimhan, the common governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states, turned to be an imposing accomplishment. After the meeting both the Chief Ministers have equally sensed a sort of buoyancy that almost all problems will be resolved in a friendly atmosphere. Of course, it is the need of the hour.
Until this time, the situation in either state was like tit-for-tat-for-tit. Nevertheless, with the timely intervention of the governor, it seems that the problems could be resolved harmoniously in a friendly environment. “No society ever can function in vacuum” is a universal truth. A state as a single entity needs to get support from other states, while supporting the other states. Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are not the exceptions for the same.
For each and every problem, there will be an obvious solution. The two chief ministers have ultimately dug out the universal solution to resolve the prevailing problems between the two states. The ultimate solution is nothing but Communication.
I happened to serve at Bathinda, a place in Punjab. There in my office the following slogan was written: “If you hate war, you should be able to prevent it”. Time and again I used to read the slogan and used to pose a question to self for I hate war beyond doubt. But, how to prevent a war? Is it possible to prevent a war? These repeated questions inside my mind got the answer, ultimately. With alone communication, a war can be either instigated or prevented. Yes, Communication alone can solve many complicated problems – this was the ultimate finding in my research of ill at ease class. That was the conclusion I have drawn. Communication is something like Azithromycin, an antibiotic useful for the treatment of bacterial infections, which a doctor can administer for any disease. In real life problems communication serves the same purpose of Azithromycin.
Even in the case of interstate relationship between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the striding ahead of present position lies in the roots of Communication, indubitably. After all, a journey that lasted together almost for 60 years cannot be stopped all of sudden and it needs the same momentum to be continued for some more time, till the time the problems are streamlined.
In my opinion, surely, the decision taken by the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to discuss and resolve the prevailing problem is praiseworthy. It is the right choice for the intended good of the people of either state. Let’s wish both the Telugu states would develop in a pink spirit competing and cooperating with each other!!
