The Support Of Faith: 78 ►Transition of Soviet Union

Published: 22.03.2020

In the year 1917 an accumulated mixture of colourful portrait (इन्र्दधनुष) was hanging in the horizon of the world. It was known as Bolshevik Revolution or October Revolution. In last few years two more such portraits emerged around that horizon—Perestroika and Glasnost. A fascinating colour was attracted to the colours of these colourful portraits. They wanted that these colours should scatter in every hook and corner of the sky. These thoughts which came out from Soviet Union should spread in the entire world. A stiff shackle of Iron broke down. Press enjoyed freedom. The internal situation of Soviet Union was exposed. This was not agreeable to a section of that country. This fact came into light on 19th August, 1991 when Gorbachev was interned.

President of Soviet Union Michael Gorbachev was enjoying holidays at that time on the beach of Black Sea at Crania. What was the intention of the people to throw him out of power was better known to them. They wanted to repeat the trends of the year 1917 or they wished to change the pattern of administration of Gorbachev. They did not give any explanation, when this event happened, the news of the same spread out from one corner to another in the world. What was the repercussion of other countries in respect of this event‘? People of Soviet Union started to protest vehemently without waiting for knowing such reception. Chairman of Russian Republic Boris Yeletsin led the protesting people. This revolt became ineffective on 22nd August.

When overwhelming public feeling revealed, that neither can be suppressed by means of law nor by penal force. Wherever public feeling is overlooked, persons overlooking the same, get appropriate lesson. If public opinion is favourable, harshest steps may be taken. Even if any soft step, adverse to public opinion, is taken may cause serious consequence. Some poets of Sanskrit have even said, ‘It is simple to be skilful in all parts of life, but not so simple to understand the condition of the people. Person, who cannot assess the public opinion even after knowing everything, is the Champion of Fools.

It was only the boldness of Gorbachev, which prompted him to stand against Communism. Conservatives could not tolerate this while in view of the Chairman of Russian Republic Boris Yeletsin, the speed of Gorbachev’s policy was rather slow, Soviet Union is, however, passing through hardships. But how the new path will be renovated without facing hardships? People of Soviet Union are ready to face hardships, but the breeze of openness has become imperative for them. It is not under the control of anybody to resist the trend moving towards democratic system.

Declaration of independence of Baltic Republics is authenticating the truth that culture of democracy and openness has since strengthened its roots. Now, how fifteen republics of Soviet Union will go ahead collectively in the progressive road- map? What will be their thinking pattern on this angle and what decision will be taken? These are the issues which will decide their future. If in the course of this thinking and decision-making process, human values could be shaped as basic foundation, solution of some hardships may be easier.
