Public Trust & ICAC

Today is the birth anniversary of Mohandas Gandhi was elevated to the level of Mahatma / Great Soul. Today, I was asked about the value of Mahabharatham – the Indian legend which I believe influenced Gandhi also. My response was as follows:

Due to reading myself in public life largely through the principles in Mahabharatham – I experienced that philosophy. The same Mahabharatham would be mythological story to some. Through your statements you have revealed that to be the case with you.

One of the lessons from Mahabharatham that helped me heaps is :

[What is yours today is someone else’s tomorrow

The day after it is someone else’s.]

The more attached we are to the physical – the less opportunity we generate towards Common sharing. The more we sacrifice that which we think is ours due to physical possession – the more Energy we generate. Today is Gandhi’s birth Anniversary and  it is appropriate that I recognize his personal sacrifice towards commonness. Gandhi also was guided by Geetha. Gandhi is a legend due to his renunciation of the physical which generated Energy. The older the Energy the stronger its nuclear power.

It is reported that  Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Viyasagar said it long before Einstein and to me that is far more powerful.

During the early stages of  the family matter in relation to my husband’s brother’s estate the lawyer engaged by the sister’s husband said Param was entitled to a small share.  Param said ‘ it needs to be shared as per Thesawalamai law’ Later I realised and Param also said that  he did not know what Thesawalamai law said. When I studied it – I realised that it stated that the brother’s property ought to go to brothers’ . This meant that the sisters who received dowry did not get any share. Our objections were filed on that basis. The Jaffna courts did rule against Thesawalamai but that helped me appreciate the need of those to whom Thesawalamai law continues to apply. Hence I wrote that book. The wonderful discovery is that Thesawalamai came to us because my husband accepted the dowry system through which his sisters got married and he himself did not take dowry. That is the way of Truth / Energy.

This will help you find the answers to the questions you have raised. That is the purpose of theories.]

The current example of temporariness of physical possession is the position of NSW Premier – which would soon be occupied by someone else due to the resignation of  Ms Gladys Berejiklian

The reason stated is presented as follows by Wikipedia:

 On 1 October 2021 New South Wales' ICAC announced an investigation into whether Berejiklian breached public trust or encouraged corrupt behaviour during her relationship with Daryl Maguire

Section  25 of  the statement headed :


[25. Section 8 of the ICAC Act identifies a number of categories of conduct that may constitute “corrupt conduct”. The category of principal relevance to the present Investigation is that set out in paragraph 8(1)(c) of the ICAC Act. That paragraph provides that corrupt conduct may be constituted by “conduct of a public official that constitutes or involves a breach of public trust”. ]

The question arises as to how one measures Trust of the Current Public? When we the Public elect a government,  that is taken to be through our Trust. The Judiciary is bound by the existing laws which represent the essence of the work of past governments’ maintenance of Equilibrium / Justice. The Judicial system has authority over individuals and lawful groups but not over the public as a whole.

The ICAC is bound by its own legislation through which it can measure its own officials. But it lacks the jurisdiction to measure the Trust of the Public. Until the next elections – only the government has the jurisdiction to measure and publish our Trust. Not even the Judiciary has that power – leave alone the ICAC.

The ICAC has proven to be interfering in the affairs that only the Public have the jurisdiction to inquire into. A handful of individuals have no authority to assess Public Trust. When they do so  – it makes mockery of democracy itself.
