The Achievement of Obama - An Individual Rising to the Level of Creator

Barrack Hussein Obama is 44th US President
This is the headline of a newspaper (6 November 2008, India).
"Your victory has shown that no person should not dare to dream wanting to change the world." Said Nelson Mandela.
"Aham Brahmaasmi," " I am the Brahma," "I am the Creator this universe." This is a statement from Hindu scriptures. In Hindu scriptures, there are stories or instances of people who created universes.
What happened in US now happened in various countries earlier. In India, there was a slave dyansty, a series of kings, all of them being slaves first in their life.
But something happening before our eyes gives us the real confidence and energy to try to create change.
Our appreciation to Obama for his effort. Our appreciation to US citizens for their decision.
India also has the opportunity of doing similar thing. In mythology or recorded history there were many instances of injustices. At various points of time, people realize it and try to make amends. In the society corrupting influences are there. There are also influences that increase moral acts. We have to appreciate the election of Barrack Obama as President as a moral act that may set in motion such events in various countries. The rise of underendowed persons against all handicaps. In this rise their efforts are now doubt there, but there is also the enabling social environment.
An appeal is made in one of the papers, to Indian leaders to emulate Obama and become inclusive leaders who talk of their capabilities in election speeches rather than that of their caste affiliation. Obama did not win because he is a black. Obama won because he is the right candidate.
Obama's win should inspire many underendowed persons all over the world. Dream and do the effort. You may achieve it. God in on the side of people who make efforts (Yajna is the word used for all noble undertakings in Vedas). Do Yajnas with noble goals. Make the world a happy place physically and mentally.
