Why DeAddiction ? Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
Addiction of â€œdrugsâ€? causes perceptible and conspicuously disastrous effects and is universally and rightly condemned. But addiction of tobacco, alcohol and other things such as TV, internet, mobile etc. does not cause alarmingly conspicuous and quick damage. In fact, many people seem to be well off with moderate tobacco and alcohol and many seem to Be sad and disturbed without them.
Many people are happy go lucky and live generously and benevolently with tobacco and alcohol and many others without tobacco and alcohol; seem to become fanatic, fastidious and sadist! Why should one suffer deprivation and abstinence from â€œexuberance and styleâ€? in such doubtful state of affairs? Namasmaran provides the answer: De-addiction makes sense if there is fountainhead of universal
welfare! Mere physical benefits resulting from de-addiction is a narrow and petty consideration and hence does not appeal to most people! DR. SHRIN IWAS KASHALIKAR
