President's House: A Palace of Confinement !!

President's House: A Palace of Confinement !! Maybe I have few words to say about A Queen (read #FirstLady); a painter, a writer, a singer, a wife and the mother of three kids; today she is not among us; she was an exponent of Rabindra Sangeet and was a founder of Geetanjali troupe that has propagated Tagore’s philosophy through his songs, dance and drama. But the touching part of her efforts was, the first lady; could not sing after moving to President’s House; in spite of being a good singer… We live in a democratic country and being a wife of President she could not pursue her passion due to the #Protocol followed at #PresidentHouse ... I could gauge from her conversation with me, that she wanted to fly above her horizon, but could not fly. She has mentioned that she was not allowed to keep her pet dog, she adore like a child, because of protocol... My intention is not to pave a way to be any critic, neither I am part of it, being very simple and having very simple approach, I just want people to be enlighten that "palace" has some rods that are made up of gold...
There are other norms for president living in #RashtrapatiBhavan he & his family needs to follow, though that would be very judgmental for me to discuss at this point; like a separate bed room for the president, family cannot sing or dance or not allowed to keep a pet, to name a few from the list of protocol followed since colonial era… Our constitution gives us freedom to profess any religion and education...
May I ask you all, that why a President's wife can’t sing or get some happiness from the things she adore? That too when she was a diabetic & a heart patient… Why ?? Why it happened??? She might have lived long if she would have been given a chance to be with the things she liked... I still remember she mentioned me, during my astrological session with her at the President’s House; she was almost into depression at that time & I tried my best to motivate her & tried to convince her to be content about being the first lady of this country… But she was very disturbed with the protocol she had to follow… And now I really feel sorry for that… A great soul serves every one all the time… A great soul never dies… May the blessing of love be upon the family, may its peace abide with them, may its essence illuminate their heart, now and forever… May the #Protocol becomes more #Humane#SK
