“Demonetization”

This blog has been inactive for some time and sincere apologies for the same.

This might look like not so current issue but considering its long lasting effects, this issue can still be deliberated upon.

“There are always some hardships faced before achieving some end, what we need to analyse- is the means of achieving the end worth it afterall for greater good?”watermark

Yes, demonetization has caused many hardships but at the end, it is all worth it for greater good. This is not just my view, interviewing the people who sell vegetables, auto rickshaw drivers, low income people; the comments I gathered were more or less same as- “Humari pareshaani to do din ki hai, par ab bade logon ki pareshani shuru hogi” (the common man’s hardships won’t last for much time but the bad time for businessman and corrupt politicians will start now); the people having most issues and problems with demonetisation are the ones who never paid tax on their income and gathered a lot of black money.

Considering the income tax raids and notices given to high income businessmen and politicians, there have been several inquiries going for the same purpose, over Rs.2,000 crores black money has been recovered by the income tax raids which clearly shows that the bad time for dishonest people has already started. Not only black money recovery but it has stopped funding of terrorists organisations, money laundering, illicit trade of drugs and weapons, naxalite groups have been caught and some of them surrendered themselves. Yes, it has led to long ques in front of banks and ATMs but at the end, but our efforts and co-operation will lead to a corruption free and cashless India.

Reservation- justified or not?

Reservation has become a major issue in Haryana and jats have been fighting for their so called right. I must say seeing the condition of rohtak, i cannot find much difference between Jammu&Kashmir and Rohtak, the only difference being in J&K these violent acts are done by terrorist and in Rohtak these are the citizens of the country doing so; really shameful it is. There are several videos of jats buring buses, trains, police stations and government is bearing loss in crores.

If this is how things are meant to be done then let all the communities come out and destroy the nation slowly. I am sorry but this is not the way things are meant to be done. First of all,reservation is meant for people who are economically backward and to ensure equality of opportunities to those; not for the richer dumb class who have profited from Green Revolution and are not capable of getting admissions on merit. Second of all, if you want reservation then there is a systematic way of doing everything; file a writ petition in High Court or Supreme Court.

There have been news saying there is high alert in delhi, jaipur etc because terrorist might use this as an opportunity. It is very despicable to see how much we hate terrorism and now indirectly promoting it.

At one side  our soldiers are fighting for us without caring about their lives and thousands of them die every year and it breaks my heart and definitely their heart too after seeing the condition of nation. Is it the nation for which they sacrificed their lives? Don’t let their sacrifice go in vain. Be a citizen who is worth protecting for. #IncredibleIndia

Should Anti Nationalism be tolerated?

I have been refraining from writing on this sensitive issue from long but i think its high time. Jawaharlal Nehru University, a very renowned and reputed university is now facing serious conflicts. Who is responsible? Kanhaiya or other JNU students or BJP government or someone else?

Now, the basic facts which are known to us are some of the JNU students were seen saying Anti Nationalist slogans in a rally which was basically against the punishment of Afzal Guru (a known terrorist) and this rally was approved by the president of JNU students union Kanhaiya who has been arrested for sedition and other students are absconding. There are so many people against this arrest and doing marches whereas there are many who say shutdown JNU and want to kill these people for being against the nation. But will it do any good? If 10 students of JNU say anti nationalist slogans, then shutting down whole university or treating all JNU students in the same manner is not justified.

And people who are claiming videos are tampered by ABVP students union, i believe this should be left to the police and judiciary to decide upon. Yes,delhi police can be under control of central but judiciary is an independent body under article 50, so  I don’t know why extraneous violence and protests have been taking place. If the absconding JNU students are innocent then i don’t see the point of running away. And if this has really taken place, then I am sorry we are not tolerant enough to just leave these students. If punishment won’t be given today then a lot more will happen tomorrow.

At last, I would just say that please recall the death of Hanumanthappa and thousand of soldiers who die fighting and protecting us on borders. Be a citizen who is worth fighting for. #IncredibleIndia

BJP barring Activists!

image

The condition of India is very sad specially in terms of justice and order. An Australian Greenpeace activist was not allowed to enter India despite having all relevant documents. Yes. You read it right and that did happen. This is the government’s new stunt. What are they afraid of? Free speech? 
Freedom of speech is something  our Constitution grants but is still subject to violation and prevention. How can we expect justice if our government itself is unjust? And this, my friends, is the bitter truth.

Who is responsible for Gajendra Singh’s Death?

Gajendra_Singh_PTI2

A reluctant farmer, Gajendra Singh who lived in a small village in Rajasthan lost his crops in last month’s untimely rain and hailstorm and came Delhi to meet Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal committed suicide in an AAP Rally. It is being said that He committed suicide because of depression as he was not able to feed the empty stomachs of his children.

Now the question rises that who should be held responsible for this suicide attempt? The government who was not able to provide aid to all those farmers who are suffering from crop failure? or The people present there in rally who were just staring at the farmer instead of stopping him from doing this?

I feel pity for the lives of all those poor and middle class people whose lives are of no value in the eyes of our government and even after their death, politics continue to take place. Their death is made a controversy. BJP and Congress blaming AAP for Gajendra Singh’s death and AAP leaders which are so called “Politicians” who had a very casual attitude towards the life of a farmer quoted during the rally- “Ab Mukhya Mantri thodi bachane jaenge sabko” (Now,Chief Minister i.e. Arvind Kejriwal won’t go and save all the people committing suicide) are now crying and apologizing in media, doing all this drama just to gain sympathy and public support. Police is defending themselves by saying that they tried their best but the AAP supporters created hurdles on their way and even AAP leaders continued to give speech even after seeing this kind of situation. This is really shameful. Now we all know the value of lives of middle class and poor people in India. #wewantbetterIndia

Indian Politics

Politics

Parties in rancour, play their parts;
One upon the other, recurs with the starts.

Policies for the polls, made beforehand;
Covers of their crimes, reported on stands.

Election for the veto, to corrupt its mantle;
The party for power, orients its oracle.

Going on the ethics, the leader sounds loud;
Abiding by the past, creates the communal crowd.

Editors with pens, hold on the cadence;
On matters of essence, pave political sense.

A haven for the poor, a heaven for these player(s);
Democracy of the land, in its dual nature.

Well Done People!

Wow.. this time its really surprising.. the results of Lok Sabha elections and then the results of Delhi Elections. But I am really glad to see the public participation in politics. This time, we the people of India have shown our power and have shown that the public cannot be fooled – We understand the politics and vote for better future.

This is really interesting. We gave full majority to BJP in Lok Sabha Elections and chose Mr. Narendra modi as Prime Minister of India. We knew that this person can really make a change and will represent our country in best way. He is the best choice.

But in Delhi Elections, we have also proved that the public is not a fool. We can’t give absolute power to any party. We have already seen what Congress has done being in power in both Central and Capital. So, we chose AAP ( Aam Admi Party) giving full majority in Delhi, so that there will be a balance and government will work for betterment of the people.

Really Hats of to common people who took a great decision.

PS- Modi is face of the country as being Prime Minister of India but he can’t be face of each and every state. BJP, stop using Modi as marketing policy and Gujarat as its product. Work Hard and make other states like Gujarat too.

Jai Hind.

Obama visits India!

image

Since the day this news was announced that Obama will be visiting India, Indian news channels got very exited. They even started talking about the love life of the President of the United States. I mean, seriously?

However, it was a very bold move on the Indian Prime Minister’s part. Yes, India is taking pride in it. For the first time in history, a US president is invited for the republic day. Wuuuhuuu!

So, Obama arrived at 10 in the morning and went to the rashtrapati bhavan. Indian ministers were waiting there to recieve the President. News channels had gone crazy by then. Breaking News everywhere.
But one thing was very amusing. The delegation from the US was so slim and fit and the tonds a.k.a fat bellies of our ministers were never ending. Yes we founded yoga and we don’t do it. Irony much?

But hey, after all, the US president is here and it is a very big thing for us.

The four children comment by Sakshi Maharaj of BJP – Horrendous

1420715722sakshi-maharaj-twitter-joke6

Go ahead and guess the gender of Sakshi Maharaj first. Boom! He’s not a female!
Yes, in India, we have a chaotic mixture of names of both the genders.
Supposedly, he is some ‘baba’ and surprisingly, he is an MP. I don’t know how these people get voted for. This really surprises me. But, hey, after all, anything is possible here in our country and this only happens in India.

He stated a fact which amused me at first and then horrified me later. He stated that every Hindu woman should produce four children so that the Hindu population could increase. This amused me. But the fact that he belongs to the ruling party and he is an MP seriously horrifies me. Is it right for a ‘so called’ leader to say something like this? Now, is this not hindutva? What else is he spreading?
Alright, we are educated people and we simply laughed off this stupid comment. But there are people who may get influenced. People from other sections of society may feel inferior by this comment. We must remember that this is a secular nation. If some low witted baba, who is also an MP of the ruling party, asks for the increase in the Hindu population, what do we interpret? The fact that he himself is a bachelor is a more hilarious fact.

So, the BJP now claims that a notice has been issued to him. But Mr. Sakshi Maharaj says that he did not receive anything from the party and that it was the BJP’s internal matter. What exactly is happening? Are we being made a fool of?
This close relationship between the BJP and the RSS can really prove to be deadly.

After Sakshi Maharaj, BJP leader Shaymal Goswami says Hindu women should have 5 children.
What next? 6? 7,8,9,10?
Well, wake me up when they reach a half century.
Adios till next time.

Nathuram Godse – Not a murderer, just a savior! – Megha Chaturvedi

The people know Nathuram Godse for killing Lgend Mahatma Gandhi. But after reading this article your views will completely change about Mahatma Gandhi and Nathuram Godse. Nathuram Godse was not exactly a murderer, he was a savior of all Hindus.

Just because Mahatma Gandhi is called Father of Nation and have done a lot of freedom struggle, doesn’t mean he was always right on each and every action. I request all the people to read this speech given by Nathuram Godse and then try to understand both sides of a coin instead of just blindly following what is being taught to us!

 

Speech by Nathuram Godse in the court (Assassinated Mahatma Gandhi)

JANUARY 30th, 1949 – The Mahatma was assassinated by a man called Naturam Godse. After he shot him, instead of running away, he stood his ground and surrounded. He said, “No one should think that Gandhi was killed by a madman”

One of the best speeches of All time, which is compared to Socrates’s speech in his trial. The Judge was astonished by his speech and commented that if India had followed the Jury system of giving judgments, Godse would have been adjudicated as “Not Guilty” by the Jury, cause after the speech, the whole audience was in tears.

This is the speech given by Nathuram Godse in the court in his last trial for the murder of Mahatma Gandhi
Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively came to revere Hindu religion, Hindu history and Hindu culture. I had, therefore, been intensely proud of Hinduism as a whole. As I grew up I developed a tendency to free thinking unfettered by any superstitious allegiance to any isms, political or religious. That is why I worked actively for the eradication of untouchability and the caste system based on birth alone. I openly joined anti-caste movements and maintained that all Hindus were of equal status as to rights, social and religious and should be considered high or low on merit alone and not through the accident of birth in a particular caste or profession. I used publicly to take part in organized anti-caste dinners in which thousands of Hindus, Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, Chamars and Bhangis participated. We broke the caste rules and dined in the company of each other.

I have read the speeches and writings of Dadabhai Nairoji, Vivekanand, Gokhale, Tilak, along with the books of ancient and modern history of India and some prominent countries like England, France, America and’ Russia. Moreover I studied the tenets of Socialism and Marxism. But above all I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar and Gandhiji had written and spoken, as to my mind these two ideologies have contributed more to the moulding of the thought and action of the Indian people during the last thirty years or so, than any other single factor has done.

All this reading and thinking led me to believe it was my first duty to serve Hindudom and Hindus both as a patriot and as a world citizen. To secure the freedom and to safeguard the just interests of some thirty crores (300 million) of Hindus would automatically constitute the freedom and the well being of all India, one fifth of human race. This conviction led me naturally to devote myself to the Hindu Sanghtanist ideology and programme, which alone, I came to believe, could win and preserve the national independence of Hindustan, my Motherland, and enable her to render true service to humanity as well.

Since the year 1920, that is, after the demise of Lokamanya Tilak, Gandhiji’s influence in the Congress first increased and then became supreme. His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their intensity and were reinforced by the slogan of truth and non-violence, which he paraded ostentatiously before the country. No sensible or enlightened person could object to those slogans. In fact there is nothing new or original in them. They are implicit in every constitutional public movement. But it is nothing but a mere dream if you imagine that the bulk of mankind is, or can ever become, capable of scrupulous adherence to these lofty principles in its normal life from day to day. In fact, honour, duty and love of one’s own kith and kin and country might often compel us to disregard non-violence and to use force. I could never conceive that an armed resistance to an aggression is unjust. I would consider it a religious and moral duty to resist and, if possible, to overpower such an enemy by use of force. [In the Ramayana] Rama killed Ravana in a tumultuous fight and relieved Sita. [In the Mahabharata], Krishna killed Kansa to end his wickedness; and Arjuna had to fight and slay quite a number of his friends and relations including the revered Bhishma because the latter was on the side of the aggressor. It is my firm belief that in dubbing Rama, Krishna and Arjuna as guilty of violence, the Mahatma betrayed a total ignorance of the springs of human action.

In more recent history, it was the heroic fight put up by Chhatrapati Shivaji that first checked and eventually destroyed the Muslim tyranny in India. It was absolutely essentially for Shivaji to overpower and kill an aggressive Afzal Khan, failing which he would have lost his own life. In condemning history’s towering warriors like Shivaji, Rana Pratap and Guru Gobind Singh as misguided patriots, Gandhiji has merely exposed his self-conceit. He was, paradoxical, as it may appear, a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the name of truth and non-violence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji and the Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen forever for the freedom they brought to them.

The accumulating provocation of thirty-two years, culminating in his last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the existence of Gandhi should be brought to an end immediately. Gandhi had done very well in South Africa to uphold the rights and well being of the Indian community there. But when he finally returned to India he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was to be the final judge of what was right or wrong. If the country wanted his leadership, it had to accept his infallibility; if it did not, he would stand aloof from the Congress and carry on his own way. Against such an attitude there can be no halfway house. Either Congress had to surrender its will to his and had to be content with playing second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality, metaphysics and primitive vision, or it had to carry on without him. He alone was the Judge of everyone and everything; he was the master brain guiding the civil disobedience movement; no other could know the technique of that movement. He alone knew when to begin and when to withdraw it. The movement might succeed or fail, it might bring untold disaster and political reverses but that could make no difference to the Mahatma’s infallibility. ‘A Satyagrahi can never fail’ was his formula for declaring his own infallibility and nobody except himself knew what a Satyagrahi is.

Thus, the Mahatma became the judge and jury in his own cause. These childish insanities and obstinacies, coupled with a most severe austerity of life, ceaseless work and lofty character made Gandhi formidable and irresistible. Many people thought that his politics
were irrational but they had either to withdraw from the Congress or place their intelligence at his feet to do with, as he liked. In a position of such absolute irresponsibility Gandhi was guilty of blunder after blunder, failure after failure, disaster after disaster.

Gandhi’s pro-Muslim policy is blatantly in his perverse attitude on the question of the national language of India. It is quite obvious that Hindi has the most prior claim to be accepted as the premier language. In the beginning of his career in India, Gandhi gave a great impetus to Hindi but as he found that the Muslims did not like it, he became a champion of what is called Hindustani. Everybody in India knows that there is no language called Hindustani; it has no grammar; it has no vocabulary. It is a mere dialect; it is spoken, but not written. It is a b*st*rd tongue and crossbreed between Hindi and Urdu, and not even the Mahatma’s sophistry could make it popular. But in his desire to please the Muslims he insisted that Hindustani alone should be the national language of India. His blind followers, of course, supported him and the so-called hybrid language began to be used. The charm and purity of the Hindi language was to be prostituted to please the Muslims. All his experiments were at the expense of the Hindus.

From August 1946 onwards the private armies of the Muslim League began a massacre of the Hindus. The then Viceroy, Lord Wavell, though distressed at what was happening, would not use his powers under the Government of India Act of 1935 to prevent the rape, murder and arson. The Hindu blood began to flow from Bengal to Karachi with some
retaliation by the Hindus. The Interim Government formed in September was sabotaged by its Muslim League members right from its inception, but the more they became disloyal and treasonable to the government of which they were a part, the greater was Gandhi’s infatuation for them. Lord Wavell had to resign as he could not bring about a settlement and he was succeeded by Lord Mountbatten. King Log was followed by King Stork.

The Congress, which had boasted of its nationalism and socialism, secretly accepted Pakistan literally at the point of the bayonet and abjectly surrendered to Jinnah. India was vivisected and one-third of the Indian territory became foreign land to us from August 15, 1947. Lord Mountbatten came to be described in Congress circles as the greatest Viceroy and Governor-General this country ever had. The official date for handing over power was fixed for June 30, 1948, but Mountbatten with his ruthless surgery gave us a gift of vivisected India ten months in advance. This is what Gandhi had achieved after thirty years of undisputed dictatorship and this is what Congress party calls ‘freedom’ and ‘peaceful transfer of power’. The Hindu- Muslim unity bubble was finally burst and a theocratic state was established with the consent of Nehru and his crowd and they have called ‘freedom won by them with sacrifice’ – whose sacrifice? When top leaders of Congress, with the consent of Gandhi, divided and tore the country – which we consider a deity of worship – my mind was filled with direful anger.

One of the conditions imposed by Gandhi for his breaking of the fast unto death related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by the Hindu refugees. But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent attacks he did not so much as utter a single word to protest and censure the Pakistan Government or the Muslims concerned. Gandhi was shrewd enough to know that while undertaking a fast unto death, had he imposed for its break some condition on the Muslims in Pakistan, there would have been found hardly any Muslims who could have shown some grief if the fast had ended in his death. It was for this reason that he purposely avoided imposing any condition on the Muslims. He was fully aware of from the experience that Jinnah was not at all perturbed or influenced by his fast and the Muslim League hardly attached any value to the inner voice of Gandhi.
Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of the Nation. But if that is so, he had failed his paternal duty inasmuch as he has acted very treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it. I stoutly maintain that Gandhi has failed in his duty. He has proved to be the Father of Pakistan. His inner-voice, his spiritual power and his doctrine of non-violence of which so much is made of, all crumbled before Jinnah’s iron will and proved to be powerless.

Briefly speaking, I thought to myself and foresaw I shall be totally ruined, and the only thing I could expect from the people would be nothing but hatred and that I shall have lost all my honour, even more valuable than my life, if I were to kill Gandhiji. But at the same time I felt that the Indian politics in the absence of Gandhiji would surely be proved practical, able to retaliate, and would be powerful with armed forces. No doubt, my own future would be totally ruined, but the nation would be saved from the inroads of Pakistan. People may even call me and dub me as devoid of any sense or foolish, but the nation would be free to follow the course founded on the reason which I consider to be necessary for sound nation-building. After having fully considered the question, I took the final decision in the matter, but I did not speak about it to anyone whatsoever. I took courage in both my hands and I did fire the shots at Gandhiji on 30th January 1948, on the prayer-grounds of Birla House.

I do say that my shots were fired at the person whose policy and action had brought rack and ruin and destruction to millions of Hindus. There was no legal machinery by which such an offender could be brought to book and for this reason I fired those fatal shots.

I bear no ill will towards anyone individually but I do say that I had no respect for the present government owing to their policy, which was unfairly favourable towards the Muslims. But at the same time I could clearly see that the policy was entirely due to the presence of Gandhi. I have to say with great regret that Prime Minister Nehru quite forgets that his preachings and deeds are at times at variances with each other when he talks about India as a secular state in season and out of season, because it is significant to note that Nehru has played a leading role in the establishment of the theocratic state of Pakistan, and his job was made easier by Gandhi’s persistent policy of appeasement towards the Muslims.
I now stand before the court to accept the full share of my responsibility for what I have done and the judge would, of course, pass against me such orders of sentence as may be considered proper. But I would like to add that I do not desire any mercy to be shown to me, nor do I wish that anyone else should beg for mercy on my behalf. My confidence about the moral side of my action has not been shaken even by the criticism levelled against it on all sides. I have no doubt that honest writers of history will weigh my act and find the true value thereof some day in future.
