Praise yourself...

...if you fear:
that world would forget you after losing power & position.
UP chief minister is in defensive mode after unveiling her own statues. Why she has been doing so? Is it some kind of future planning? Perhaps, most probably. As a news paper reports:
I am a living goddess, says Mayawati
Great poet Tagore has said:
"Jodi tor đak shune keu na ashe tôbe êkla chôlo re, Êkla chôlo, êkla chôlo, êkla chôlo, êkla chôlo re."
the Bengali text translates into English as:
"If they answer not to thy call walk alone",
But, the case is different with Mayavati. She possesses a long list of followers. She enjoys their full support, the result of last assembly elections are example. But, is it for ever? Obviously not. She knows well. "It's the politics and vendetta of the people who practice it as career/profession, otherrwise, the statues of Mahatma Gandhi would have been worshiped just like other Hindu deities,"once said a passenger during a discussion in train. It may be the intuition, that has directed Mayavati and she has been following suit. If you recall a news paper report, when a person had performed his own last rites, fearing his sons won't do that. So, at the end it's better to do yourself, instead expect others.
