LORD NELSON'S COLUMN.

LORD NELSON'S COLUMN.

The next verse describes what will happen when all the people have been thus infected by the poison of Kali-yuga.
evam prajäbhir dustäbhir
äkirne ksiti-mandale
brahma-vit-ksatra-südränäm
yo bali bhavitä nripah
It won’t matter whether one is a brähmana [a learned and pure intellectual] or a ksatriya [an administrator or soldier] or a vaisya [a merchant or farmer] or a südra [a laborer] or a candäla [a dog-eater]. If one is powerful in getting votes, he will occupy the presidential or royal post. Formerly the system was that only a ksatriya could occupy the royal throne, not a brähmana, vaisya, or südra. But now, in the Kali-yuga, there is no such thing as a ksatriya or a brähmana. Now we have democracy. Anyone who can get your votes by hook or crook can occupy the post of leader. He may be rascal number one, but he will be given the supreme, exalted presidential post.
