Spiritual leader Jaggi Vasudev revered as Sadhguru delivered the Nehru Memorial Lecture at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, and during his talk brought several issues that students of contemporary India are facing.
In his lecture Sadhguru said that students should debate on issues however should refrain from taking sides. He also pointed out towards the country becoming “ideologically divided”.
“We are becoming like that. US was unfortunately divided like that for decades but that was not there in India. But in the past 10 years or so, everyone belongs to some party. This is destruction of democracy. Three months before elections, one should start evaluating whether they have done something. You must evaluate according to your intelligence. There is enough information available to help you do that”, said Sadhguru.
The spiritual leader spoke on variety of issues, right from education to monogamy, and democracy to artificial intelligence. In response to one of the student’s questions on how to remain neutral in JNU which is a politically vibrant campus Jaggi Vasudev said, “This has become a phenomenon across the country. If you open your mouth to say something about the nation they will try to fix you to some ideology. Inevitably someone is trying to pin you on some board. Unfortunately, this is how you are destroying a democracy.”
