Leaders who don’t smile



I know I will be flooded by hate mails. But let me have my say.

I recently asked a friend, who is in the RSS, as to why Narendra Modi wears such a stern and serious look when in public? Twice I went past him in Dehradun near chief minister Vijay Bahuguna’s official residence recently. Though it was night, his face was quite visible as he sat on a properly lit front seat of his vehicle. He wore the same ’snobbish’ look which some obsequiously describe as ‘officious business-like looks’- which, however, I find unpleasant. It smacks of arrogance and attitude. But that’s what his supporters again and again describe as his strength – someone who does not get rattled by media trials and volleys of criticisms.

All said and done, it appears humility is becoming a thing of the past, especially when it comes to politicians. One may have to accept Modi as someone who is liked or hated with the same intensity, but what about Amit Shah. Why is that guy trying to be another Modi , that unsmiling face that instantly puts one off — the BJP leaders of UP dancing to his tunes notwithstanding.

What a state of political affairs in the country’s most politically crucial state in the Hindi heartland? Both the Congress and the BJP borrow leaders and even ‘chase’ each other in doing so. The last when we had loose mouthed Digvijay Singh from Madhya Pradesh as in-charge of the Congress, the BJP brought in firebrand Uma Bharti from his state. And now when Amit Shah has come all the way from Gujarat to rejuvenate the BJP, the Congress has brought in an equally grumpy Madhusudan Mistry from that state to infuse some life in the moribund party. Why can’t they think of someone home grown?

It’s so irritating to see the veterans of the two parties bending and bowing before the ‘borrowed leaders’. May be they are experts in election management, but polls in UP is poles apart from that in Gujarat.

Shah could be a great poll manager but can he be better than Kalyan Singh who has nursed the state for over five decades. Can Shah know UP better than him or for that matter Kalraj Mishra or Lalji Tandon? Similarly, can Mistry understand UP better than eight-time MLA Pramod Tiwari?

Perhaps, the leadership feels haughtiness will work where humility has failed.

Now the endnote: Can the media stop speculating about BJP’s Ayodhya moves? They dumped the temple issue long time back. It is now a matter of faith for them. Even if Modi came to power, he will keep the issue on the backburner. Today’s generation has after all moved beyond temple/mosque politics, at least in the urban areas.

    Anti Corruption movement is important, but over focus on it to the
    exclusion of every other major issue is not the right recipe.
    “Governance” in which fast or moderately fast development activities
    take place, where wealth is created and distributed, even if not
    ideally, is the need of hour .Every country in last 200 years which has
    had fast progress has gone through phase of very high corruption.
    However countries who have maintained progress have ultimately reduced
    corruption , prospered with wide distribution of wealth.. Recent example
    is from South East Asean Tiger economies, China is current example.
    Our first priority has to be progress. Everyone of us would be better
    off if there is good progress even if there is corruption, however we
    would be very badly placed if there is less corruption and very low
    progress.

    I am glad you raised this valid point.

    While there is a progress in general, there would be few elements
    take advantage of the uncontrolled growth. But the benefit of overall
    growth would outweigh this bit of corruption.

    By scaring the bureaucrats with the stick of Lokpal or similar stuff,
    we would only lessen the possibility of growth maximisation.

    We must also remember that this growth possibilities wouldn’t be there for eternity.

    We should have taken the advantage of the world-wind that has been blowing in our favour.

    Unfortunately, a few decided in favour of holding the country to
    ransom for petty gains. In the long run whether they would succeed or
    not is really debatable. But the damage has already been done.

    We need a strong push to move out of this mess.

    I recall one statement by MMS some time back –

    “Everyday I am surprised that we have so many honest and committed people around us despite such high lure of corruption.”

    He summed it up nicely. We need that spirit and must move forward.

    Let us remind ourselves that Kejriwal is now in politics and has full right to expose the double talk, loot and corruption of existing politicians and their children.

    If Vadra got his crores by blood and sweat then why is he ashamed to face the press? Why does he need the entire Congress party to stand up and fight for him?

    The public has full right to question him and also question Rahul and Sonia on how these 500 crores were made. It is possible that another 1000 crores could be hidden.

    In case Kejriwal is wrong then Sonia and Rahul can use the legal route as they did in the fake rape case allegation. But by all accounts it seems just so true!

    Salman Khurshid’s violence threats are equally reprehensible. In contrast Gadkari has wecomed a probe. Here i lies the difference between Vadra and Khurshid one one side and BJP on the other.

    We look to you for making India corruption free. We dont come to this blog to hear Emotional atyachri type reasons on why Vadra billions are genuine blood sweat and tears stuff while all opposition is corrupt.

    Why dont you become dispassionate for a change?

    Kejriwal knows his limitation.

    He needed a horse to ride at the outset of his movement. He got one – Anna.

    As the election was coming close, he got restless. He nagged and ridiculed
    Anna sitting on meaningless fast. He dumped the horse, he so
    successfully rode.

    He changed the course and moved on to the next level.

    I don’t see anything wrong in that.

    As a political newbie, he needs to create a space for himself. He is doing that nicely.

    The media foolishly can’t differentiate between a not-so-honest activist and a smart young politician. You can’t blame Kejriwal for your own mistake and myopic vision.

    Kejriwal is doing fine. He has moved to the next level. It’s the media that is stuck up in the old orbit. The media hasn’t managed to get break of the inertia. It hasn’t managed to keep pace with Kejriwal.

    The media doesn’t know who it’s dealing with – an activist or a politician? Hence the confusion.

    It’s the media that needs to ask question itself.

    Is the media serving an activist or a political man ?

    Kejriwal need not answer.

    The media needs to.

    The extent of law breaking by Rahul and vadra:

    I am attaching a table of agriculture land allowed to be owned by a single individual in various states. Please note that this report is from IIM Ahemdabad, an institute where I once did a short term management course to augment my CA knowledge. What are these laws for in case the powerful break them?

    Should not the powerful be punished accordingly? Was Rahul protesting for farmers and secretly acquirign land cheaply so that his family would be among the few owning huge tracts?

    Big questions which no newspaper would probe into. In contrast to the 10 or twenty acres allowed to be held, India Today estimates, Vasra alone owns more than 1000 acres.

    The politics of corruption has spread to gigantic proportions under congress rule of last 60 years. No where in recorded history, have we seen people electing same family, same party for the last 60 years in a democracy. When water stagnates it starts to stink after a while. Same thing with congress.

    When honest people are threatened and the govt flatly refuses to probe serious allegations which many many people think are warranted, it means we are following the wrong boat, wrong direction, wrong family and need to do a u turn. Yes if Vadhra benefitted from DLF deals which is a public company in a way nobody else has, it warrants a probe.

    Kejriwal voice is the voice of millions of Indians and Kejriwal has given vent to what they know, but couldn’t because the corrupt rule the roost in judiciary and exexutive and legislature.

    The only thing needed for evil to win is for good men to do nothing. And it is important we just dont sit on sidelines but support the people who are fighting against this cancer of corruption in whatever way we can.

    It is people like Vinod who have aided and abetted the criminal corrupt politicians and bureaucrats by their selective silence and selective attacks on people who want to bring a change.

    He never raised a finger against the corruption of congress leaders — also against other leaders. In any other democratic country, especially in the western democracies, newspapers and TV stations keep an eye on the corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.

    Now it is Kjerwals problem. Not the politicians, not the bureaucrats, not the systems not the courts, Why does it have to be “alleged” cases against a Vadra, Pawar, Mayawati etc – how else they can amass the wealth they all have accumulated.. What systems will punish them..how long it will take..

    I have long advocated that a Naxalite type vigilante force who abducts and kills these ploiticians and bureaucrats is the best way to solve this problem. Chinese politicians think twice before stealing for the fear of facing the firing squad.. Saudi Arabians think thrice for the fear of facing the Mulla hand chopping off brigade.

    Fear is the best motivator and preventor.

    Despite the punishment for being found guilty of corruption is the death penalty, we hear constantly that corruption is rampant in China and that the
    Government there needs to deal with it. It is true. But the surprising
    part is that no one talks about this in a big way and life still goes on
    with the economy developing at close to 10%. China’s PM says that the
    biggest challenge for him in the past years has been to generate 25mn
    jobs every year…….implying that fighting corruption is not his top
    priority. Can we Indians learn something from this ? No one can deny
    that corruption exists and something needs to be done to reduce or eliminate it,
    but where does this fall in the list of the nation’s priorities ? I
    believe those who are fighting for this to be the top priority of our
    country…….even at the expense of economic development, employment,
    infrastructure, FDI etc etc are doing a grave injustice to the common
    man and to the country. The fact that even death penalty cannot deter people from being corrupt should guide our thinking in this regard !!

    Similar thing ( like in China ) happened in India too. The difference is that Indians are contented with a little.

    Earlier, Indians bothered a little about the corruption. They took it in their stride and went about their work. Not that the magnitude of corruption was any low. The level of corruption was always closely linked with the disposable income.

    In last decade, we have had a change in quality of life, because of the economic growth and outward policies, activism of the bureaucracy and industry friendly policies. People got smart phones in their hands, enough disposable money to splurge in Gym, pub and on designer clothes. Visiting malls completed the “social-wellbeing”.

    Now this change was over-powering. Ability to splurge money on holidays, spa or fat Indian wedding gave the sense to Indians that they had arrived.

    Now all that needed was some sense of enlightenment. Some sense of self-actualisation.

    A spiritual thrill.

    Being at Janpath, lighting candles,being seen at happening places, tweeting great taunting messages against corruption has given them that spiritual thrill.

    I have nothing against this new found spiritual thrill.

    It just that we got satisfied with a little gold that we dug and started celebrating.

    We left a whole lot of gold in the mine for other countries like Bangladesh, Phillipines etc. to dig and enjoy.

    We left all that gold for other countries to dig and get rich. When we again fall short of our gold and turn to the mine, the gold would be gone by then.

    We falsely believed that the economic growth would be there waiting for us when we get free from our new found “spiritual thrill- resonating our voice at India Gate”, holding the country to ransom, seiging the Govt., paralysing the policy making process.

    Yes, we are a country of little ambition. We are chokers.

    We will always get weighed down by our own self-doubt.

    Or, perhaps we have too much of democracy at our disposal for our own good.

    I will blame our media who has failed miserably to expose corruption. Some of the media houses are in collusion with the politicians and some are simply incompetent or scared. Most of the bureaucracy has also helped politicians in looting our country. Without the help of bureaucrats it will be next to impossible for politicians to cheat at such a large scale. People like Anna and Kejriwal have come up because media and bureaucracy has failed to do their job honestly.

    I still strongly believe had he worked along with NAC on Lokpal draft bill like he did for sometime, by now we would have got the Lokpal bill approved like we had RTI.

    That, in my opinion, would have served the country far better. And Kejriwal would have achieved much more.

    ===============================
    Kejriwal & Fernades :
    ===============================

    It’s ironic that I would take two unlikely names together.

    Actually, they are quite similar. Simple looking dragon slayers. Both high pitch street fighters. Both apparently honest. Both political animals. Both anti-establishment.

    What actually pushed me to think about them on the same platform is the way Kejriwal dumped Anna. In the middle of a fast he nagged, ridiculed Anna’s method. He said politicians were immune to fasting.

    If Kejriwal knew that politicians were immune to fasting, then he shouldn’t have pushed a grand old man Anna to take up fasting. And if he didn’t know about it, then he was always a political misfit, not worth investing on him.

    But actually he was somewhere in between. He used Anna’s fasting to kick-start his show and get some credibility. He achieved that. Then he grandly “dumped Anna”.

    That “ruthlessness” in kejriwal will take him far. He will frequently align and de-link with people quickly on need basis. He will use all resources at his disposal. He conveniently kept more than 2 crores of Ramlila maidan donations in his personal NGO. Though he offered a cheque to Anna, he knew Anna wouldn’t have taken the money the way it was offered.

    This ruthlessness, understanding of system, ability to manipulate media will make Kejriwal a lethal weapon.

    Fernades is also known to have back-stabbed his early political friends.

    Interesting part would be to know if Kejriwal – the lethal weapon would cut the web for himself or somebody else would leverage him.

    Fernades wasn’t known to have taken any bribes. he maintained his personal integrity about money to a very large extent. But he wasn’t as clean about deliberating choosing his friends e.g Jaitley.

    Same with Kejriwal. He tries to maintain the personal integrity about not taking bribe. But that’s not about honesty. A person can be dishonest in many ways. Like Fernades, Kejriwal would try to maintain a personal clean image but close his eyes to his associates.

    Kejriwal believes that honesty is all about not taking bribes. He has conveniently re-defined honesty to a much narrower scope for personal gain.

    And finally, like Fernades, Kejriwal too would go far, but, in my opinion, will not reach the very top.

    Let’s watch the game.

    I must not dilute his effort unnecessarily with my arguments. He is on a new path. We must wish him success.

    But do not forget about people who offered their services free to him during Anna movement. Top class advertising, PR consultants, Computer professional, Event managers and Managers offered their services absolutely free during Anna movement. More than 95% of them have moved away from him after he showed his political ambition.

    He learnt a lot during those days. He is using a bit of it now.

    We would know his driving ability when he steers a 24 wheel like most seasoned politicians do.

    Note : He is comfortable like most of his associates when he is giving “monologue”. He falters quickly once he is asked few questions. You may watch few of his interviews and group discussion on TV to understand this point.

    But, the most seen (approvingly) face is of team member, Shazia Ilmi.
    WIth Ilmi as a name, and without any ‘ilm’, she takes on lawyers, editors, politicians and the like and almost always fells them, sometimes with a smile, sometimes with a loud laugh (signifying derision and contempt) but never with cogent reasoning and still less with conviction.

    She seems to believe that with these “performances”, she is a natural choice for the post of Information minister in Kejriwal’s squeakily clean government sure to take Delhi by storm in 2014 or even earlier, if Kejriwal so decides.

    PathakG:
    Arvind Kejriwal is an intelligent man. And, much as I think individuals are irrelevant, he will have achieved a lot more in concrete terms than Anna Hazare before he is done. And, IMO, he is just beginning.
    Let us look at his biography. IIT-KGP BTech, IRS to follow, Magasasay winner, rights activist, effective mobilizer, ability to put a team together, seek and use the limelight and yes, even the ruthlessness that you allude to – under a different political system he would be preparing a CV for a potential president.
    This is different from Ms Bedi (the other Magsasay winner and ex-IPS)- who will always be a follower- she needs her “Anna-ji” to give her directions or Advani-ji to bring in a “game changer” moment.
    I for one do not doubt that he will be there for the long haul. What he will achieve, how much will be driven by his personal ambitions, is a matter of conjecture right now. But, worst case- he would have changed the “some things are not said” nature of our political discourse. And, best case? Maybe as a people, we would be shamed enough to collectively cleanse our political system.
    I disagree he is a one-trick pony; he has a track record- RTI onwards. And, again, he is a leader. He will gather followers and supporters.
    He was quite cogent today in the one on one with Sreenivasan Jain.

    Rightly said. We need such mavericks to expose the loot in high places.

    Frankly speaking the COngress party had created a huge mystery around Sonia and rahul and family as if they should not be ever checked out for assets and corruption. gutsy kejriwal has done what the media was too scared to do and BJP hesitant.

    I do not Congress to take action against rahul and SOnia and Vadra. Neither wi the press take them on directly. But the people of India now know what they represent. All thanks to kejriwal.

    I dont expect kejriwal to become a PM ever. Yet he serves the role of what he is doing. Journalists, judges and the opposition had failed us here.

    I never doubted his intelligence. I or most my close friends wouldn’t have problem identifying with him. Perhaps all of us must have seen one such stubborn character in our own batch. But as you rightly said he has broken the barrier.

    Why I called him a one-trick pony is that he is so closely identified with “no-corruption” tag.

    The moment he doesn’t talk about corruption, people lose interest in him. If he comes up with a weak corruption charge, people are disappointed.

    Now people expect him to talk about corruption and he would play along. But he might run out of steam on that front. When he does, people might lose interest in him.

    If he doesn’t talk about corruption, people are disappointed. If he keeps talking about corruption, then people would say he has nothing else to talk about.

    His fixing the electricity connection on TV didn’t have positive result. I personally must have spoken to about 50 people ( men & women ) on this issue. Surprisingly, none of them approved his action.

    In corporates also, we have seen few technocrats come strongly with their passionate technology solutions to take the company forward. Yet the board hesitates to give the CEO role to the guy because he is yet to prove his all-round thought and performance.

    If Kejriwal can re-invent like Maddona or Amitabh Bachhan, then he would be there for a long haul.

    He might have to go backfoot every time somebody points a finger at one of his associate like it happened recently.

    Vadra’s unpardonable illegal sin:
    ——————————————

    Robert vadra, his mother Maureen and CA Ramchandra Bhat have done what is severely punishable under India law. That is give false facts in their balance sheets.

    Corporation bank today publicly said that it never gave Vadra the 7′94 crore loan which Vadra showed in his balance sheet.

    Vadra’s lie is what Price water House got into international trouble for.

    Chidambaram’s rush to exonerate Vadra looks foolish now. He can make amends by punishing Vadra, maureen and Bhat.

    Advani reached out to Christians and Muslims in 2009, Modi wooed muslims through sadbhavna programmes and Maywati wooed upper class through her Bramhin project.

    Broadbasing can be an effective strategy but never with your adversaries- real or seeming. A case in point is Mayawati and her forging an allance with brahmins. Brahmins and Dalits are not, today fighting each other for spoils- they are fighting the OBCs. Modi can never win the Muslims, and he should even stop trying (I doubt he really wants to; it is just some media guys who want him to try).
    A smarter strategy is to first consolidate your following- make it solid and passionate. And, then expand the base.
    Kejriwal, very smartly is creating a base.A core group of largely urban middle class people with one slogan “remove corruption”. I expect that to slowly expand, as the he gets more “keyword variations” incorporated.
    As an aside, Mamata or CPM are immaterial in Bengal; the issue is the bongs. More later.

    Digvijay Singh is right again – Kejriwal is a self-serving megalomaniac.

    The sympathisers of BJP should also be wary of this man – he is too ambitious to play second fiddle to anyone. Indian electronic media is still in its nascent stages and has been manipulated by this gentleman and his team.

    If JanLokpal would have been the prime objective of the agitation/movement, they would have either negotiated with the govt.or allied with the opposition to get their voice heard in the parliament. However, by targeting the politicians of all hues, Mr Kejriwal could at the best find a place for himself in the parliament but it won’t help the cause one bit. He can’t get enough people in parliament/state assembly to pass such a bill anyways.e

    One gentleman here – PathakG has very rightly observed that would he compromise on his principal raison d’etre i.e. corruption as he moves on his life and carrier in politics. He doesn’t have a choice.

    At some point, you have to come out of your “shell” and “please” your funding agency.

    Even in corporate structure, a good CEO has to do unpleasant things due to pressure from the investor.

    Funding actually defines the contour of an organisation.

    Good cultural organisations have fallen victim to this lure of funding and later had to indulge in many uncivil and even anti-national activities due to the pressure.

    Even innocent housewives have been lured to prostitution through this “timely funding” by sympathetic middle aged ladies in the neighbourhood.

    Look around you will find many examples how funding from bad sources have spoiled people.

    Look at what Richa said – if Lokpal Bill was such a major concern for Kejriwal, then he would have collaborated with all political parties and got the bill passed. It wasn’t his prime motive !

    Cong rush for UID-based cash subsidy is like legal voter bribery

    This is one reform that the UPA must be hoping will give it direct electoral benefits.

    The Congress-led central government seems to be in big hurry to implement cash-based transfers using the Unique ID scheme (called Aadhaar) of Nandan Nilekani, Chairman of the Unique ID Authority of India.

    Not without reason. In all areas where the UID is almost done, cash transfers will mean every family will get money in the range of Rs 3,000-14,000 per annum, depending on whether they are identified below-poverty-line (BPL) cases or people better off.

    In Mangalore because of UID, the connection level ( also subsidy ) has reduced by 60%. In Rajasthan, the kerosene users have come down by 80%.

    Your fancy author forgot all that to tell you.

    The country perhaps would save more than 60% in duplicate subsidy. The citizens would get more because there is no middlemen involved

    Anonymous Reply:

    Liked your response of comparing UID with maggie noodles. :)
    Would you please elaborate on the benefits which you have mentioned like connection levels and kerosene users.

    p.s. I have no idea how to contact the author to pass on your message.

    Anonymous Reply:

    From the article itself, you might have known that the cooking gas and kerosene are heavily subsidised. There are more than 100% bogus connections and ration cards are out there. When the gives out these connections or kerosene, the Govt pays to the oil companies on behalf of the consumers. So the Govt. ends up paying for fake ration card holders or gas connections.

    Now the bank a/c is linked to UID. All subsidies and wages like MNGREA, PM’s rojgar yojna, CM’s fund distribution, even scholarships and pensions would be paid directly to the beneficiaries.

    UID helps remove the duplicates. So subsidy level has gone down with immediate effect. The Govt. saves money and can utilise for other welfare works i.e. education and health care.

    Just to understand the size, you must look at the total subsidies i.e. Rs. 1.9 trillion.

    This itself will wipe out corruption by a very large extent at the bottom of the pyramid which has been unaccessible to dirct Govt. intervention.

    Even at the top level, multiple bank accounts will get linked and any large cash movement will send out alert to the concerned department.

    Most important thing to remember the UPAII, started this programme in 2009 itself and got Nilekani to head this massive project. Nilekani is being supported by many top noth professionals from all over the worls who quit their high paying jobs to make this project happen. This shows the Govt.’s intent. Interestingly, they tried to keep it under wrap from many of own party men, saying this is just another ID card project.

    Now when you have to open ur a/c in bank, just walk in, give your fingerprint on the machine there and automatically it will pull all the data from the central server. You can update any change of address in nearest post office or bank.

    Like MNGREA, this could be one of the largest programme in the World.

    We need to actually work in tandem to remove corruption than just shout in the street.

    Appreciate your reply. Thanks. I am just wondering whether
    this cash transfer to individuals/families will be used prudently

    LPG gas, kerosene, wheat, rice etc be used for this purpose only ? I hope so.

    you are right; the BJP is really a party of small people, the real aam janta, whose corruption is limited to Rs.50000/- in the case of Bangaru Laxman, who, incidentally was the victim of a wrong judgement, which punished the receiver of a bribe, but not thew giver, which was against the law. This means the judge didn’t know the law or was already “fixed” by Tehelka and the congress. Which is why Bangaru laxman has been enlarged on bail.

    Gadkari’s “corruption” is the creation of Anjali Damania’s imagination.

    But, Vadra is a gaddar to the nation, the nation which made a biilionaire of an incompetent dimwit of a son-in-law, and he calls it a banana republic!

    “Now the bank a/c is linked to UID. All subsidies and wages like MNGREA, PM’s rojgar yojna, CM’s fund distribution, even scholarships and pensions would be paid directly to the beneficiaries”

    Now, how do identify the beneficiaries? What would be the basis – anyone earning less than Rs 32 per day or similar?

    Do all the beneficiaries already have a bank account?

    How difficult it is to swindle money electronically as opposed to physically stealing kerosene or wheat?

    When we eventually start transferring cash into people’s account, would the govt. still be buying agricultural products from the farmers? Would we still have the concept of min. support price, etc?

    If the solution to people’s poverty was simply giving away cash, why did we wait all these years for something like a UID, we could have started 50 years back – may be on a smaller scale, limited to a few underdeveloped districts?

    How do we identify the beneficiaries?
    —–

    Let’s take cooking gas connection for example. All cooking gas agencies will share the data with the Aadhar. Now, Aadhar through its central biometric data will remove the duplicates. Suppose you have a connection from Indane and another from HP, then you will get subsidy benefit only once, not twice from two different agencies. The subsidy will be transferred to your a/c, you decide which agency to buy cooking gas from. You got the subsidy. But the Govt. also saved duplicate subsidy.

    Do all the beneficiaries already have a bank account?
    ——

    The banks are on “Financial inclusion” drive for last 4-5 years. They have been instructed to open a/c ( saving ) of all people with minimum documentation of ID and Residential proof. They have been given a target to achieve. All banks are moving towards that direction.

    Mobile banking has been taken up on priority basis which is being linked to Aadhar system. We have the mobile financial transaction clearance exchange in place.

    SBI and many other banks have declared Zero Balance a/c without any penalty. ATM cards instead of Cheque book are actively being promoted. Most of the ATM machines are in English, Hindi, Urdu and Local language.

    All developmental agencies including NGO’s are helping the local populace get into this eco-system.

    This enables cash transfer to the beneficiary very easy.

    Would the govt. still be buying agricultural products from the farmers?
    ——

    Buying of Agri products follows the old methods and procedures. In some places like in Delhi the Govt. is removing the importance of Super Stockists and allowing retailers buy directly from the producers. Azadpur Mandi in Delhi is being redesigned with this idea in mind.

    How difficult it is to swindle money electronically as opposed to physically stealing kerosene or wheat?
    ——–

    Earlier, there were many bogus card holders. The ration card dealers with the help of local petty politicians used to draw all rations on behalf of unsuspecting card holders.You might be surprised somebody might be drawing kerosene in your name.
    Now as per the ration allotment, the subsidy will be transferred directly to the beneficiary’s a/c. He will use this money to buy goods at a regular price. Infact he may get better quality product for that p[rice in open market.

    The solution to people’s poverty was simply giving away cash ?
    ——–

    Giving away cash is not about removing poverty. The Govt. is forced to give cash directly because the middle layers ate up all the benefits. Remember Rajiv Gandhi’s famous comment that only 10 or 18 paisa of every rupee actually reached the people ?

    Why did it take so long?
    ——–

    First, giving away cash is not a comfortable idea. Old timers still don’t feel comfortable giving cash to newly married couples. But new generation prefer cash to gifts. That social inertia still not completely broken. Many people would never go to collect cash from Govt. agencies. But it’s ok if they receive in their a/c automatically.

    Second, the system could never be in place without a solid IT infrastructure, robust Banking System and a Unified database like Aadhar and ofcourse a willing and inclusive oriented Govt.

    Now we have most of the components of this eco system are in place. It’s right time to move forward.

    I suppose the subsidy is not limited to LPG cylinders. A few years down the line it would completely stop for people like me, anyways. The govt. gives subsidised food grains, fertilizers etc as well to a certain section of the society. Some of these are limited to BPL people. My question was primarily related to this. How do we identify if someone is really poor and hence a deserved candidate for the subsidy? Would it open a new route of corruption where people would bribe someone to be listed as a “poor”?

    Cash give away.

    If cash is eventually transferred to bank account of the people, what do we do with the huge bureaucratic set up that is in place? I am talking about those people who ‘eat’ the 82 paisa from every rupee that the central govt. sends. How would they be ‘rehabilitated’?

    [Reply]

    Anonymous Reply:

    LPG cylinder is just an example. Take example of a case study of Rajasthan, the demand for kerosene has come down by whopping 80% after introduction of Aadhar. Imagine the kind of fake kerosene consumers we had ! Now, with a single stroke the Govt. subsidy came down by 80% !

    How do we identify :

    Even if we follow the previous method, we would still avoid the duplicates. There won’t be any fake ration card holder.

    Initially if we manage to “eliminate” the duplicates, we achieve so much ! After that, we can start “including” the real BPL families through Panchayat and ground level NGO’s.

    What about old Bureaucracy ?

    When computers were introduced people were worried in similar fashion that it will remove jobs. I guess that fear is misplaced. They can always be reassigned for many new job roles.

    Skit: Arvind Kejriwal restores power at Sushil Kumar Shinde’s house!!!!!!!!!!!
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    A SKIT WORTH ENJOYING:___________________________
    During the course of the bijli-pani Satyagraha, Shri Arvind Kejriwal received a request from one Mrs. Shinde of 2, Krishna Menon Marg, New Delhi to help restore electricity to her residence. The Shindes had apparently forgotten to pay their electricity bill, resulting in disconnection.
    We present below the transcript of what ensued next:
    It is 6:30 PM. Shri Kejriwal promptly lands up at the VIP bungalow in the heart of Lutyens along with his lieutenants, Shri Manish Sisodiya and Mayank Gandhi.
    The bungalow is shrouded in relative darkness, as one of its denizens is anxiously prancing up and down the verandah. Two elegantly dressed ladies are sitting on the extensive lawn outside. One, with her sari draped around her forehead, is vacuously staring into the night sky, while the other, resplendent, despite the fading light, in a green sari and equally conspicuous bright, red lipstick, is chatting away in a clipped accent about her Oxbridge days.
    The IAC activists, sporting trademark Gandhi caps, gingerly make their way past the two ladies to the main entrance Mr. Kejriwal is carrying an electrician’s kit. Mrs. Shinde rushes out to welcome the trio into the drawing room.
    Mrs. Shinde (visibly relieved): Thank you, IAC people for coming to our rescue. You see, Shindeji forgot to pay his bill and the Sheila Dixit government promptly cut off our power supply. As if that’s not enough, we’ve been fined 10 times the bill amount. Without paying this,our power connection will not be restored. Pleasekuch kijiye.
    Mayank Gandhi: Don’t worry, Mrs. Shinde. You did the right thing in calling us. We will fix your power problem.
    Mrs. Shinde: Oh and by the way, let me introduce you to my guests who really need no introduction. Pratibha tai and Sagarika Ghosh.
    (Pratibha Patil smiles and folds her hands in a Namaste. Sagarika appears amused.)
    Sagarika: Oh, some dhartiputras from IAC. How quaint.
    Mrs. Shinde: Oh by the way, Rahul ji will be joining us later for dinner. So all of you hang around, ok?
    (Suddenly a plaintive, screech of ‘nahii’ rings through the air. Mrs. Shinde’s grand-son barges into the drawing room, appearing peeved.)
    Kid: Oh no, not again, dadi ma. That means we have to eat dal-roti for dinner again tonight. Why don’t you invite Gadkari uncle over these days?
    (Mrs. Shinde glares at her grandson sternly, and puts hers finger to her mouth as if to say ‘chup’.)
    Sagarika: Oh, its ok. He’s right. You should invite Nitin over more often. He’s great company at the dinner table.
    Kid: Grandma says because of the food inflation, she cannot afford to have Gadkariji over for dinner. Also, we’ve exhausted our quota of subsidized LPG cylinders.
    (Mrs. Shinde gives the kid another angry look and shoos him away. Arvind Kejriwal enters the room with the power bill in his hand. Everyone looks up at him.)
    Kejriwal (poring over the fine print on the bill): 10 times the bill is an unfair penalty. This is extortion. Don’t pay it. I will go and restore your connection now.
    (He opens his toolbox and takes out a few tools like crimper, wire and screwdriver. Suddenly Salman Khurshid storms in with police personnel and grabs Arvind Kejriwal’s collar.)
    Khurshid: What you folks are doing is illegal. Stealing power? I will have you thrown in jail. (pointing towards Mrs. Shinde) arrest her also.
    Mrs. Shinde: Who do you think you are?
    Khurshid: I am the Law Minister of this country
    Kid (barging in gleefully): Dadi ma, he’s the cheap man who embarrassed Sonia Gandhi by doing a scam worth just a few lakhs.
    (Suddenly Sushil Kumar Shinde enters the house)
    Shinde: Thanks, my dear grandson. I had forgotten completely about that petty scam.
    Khurshid (taken aback): Er…Shindeji, what are you doing here?
    The policemen salute Sushil Kumar Shinde.
    Mrs. Shinde (menacingly moves towards Khurshid): He is the Home Minister of this country and I am his Home Minister. You have entered my home. Now how will you go back?
    (Khurshid turns around and runs away screaming ‘see you in Farrukhabad’. Arvind Kejriwal meanwhile restores the power connection and the lights come on.)
    Pratibha Patil (clapping her hands): Wah, beta. Where did you learn these things. Never saw politicians good at solving practical problems.
    Arvind Kejriwal (smiling bashfully): Madam, no big deal. I have done engineering from IIT.
    Sagorika Ghosh: Wow! You are an electrician from ITI! This just shows the opportunities for upward mobility in this country.
    (Arvind Kejriwal ignores Sagorika and touches Pratibha Patil’s feet.)
    Kejriwal: Madam, bless me in my mission to eradicate corruption from this country.
    Pratibha Patil puts her hand on his head and says “YashaswiBhava”.
    Arvind Kejriwal and Mayank Gandhi leave the house, satisfied with their work. Suddenly Arvind Kejriwal puts his hand to his head and says “Hey, Who stole my Aam Aadmi cap?”

    Congress leader switches sides, praises ModiTimes Of India, Oct 21, 2012, 02.01AM IST TNN

    AHMEDABAD: Narendra Modi’s ‘Sadbhavana’ has got a new face — a Muslim woman from Congress. Asifa Khan, convenor of the media cell of All India Mahila Congress and former Gujarat Congress spokesperson, crossed over to BJP on Saturday.

    Modi is likely to promote Khan, a former journalist, as the face of the party. While BJP leaders maintained that the party will decide on her role later on, Khan, known to be an articulate communicator, is likely to defend the BJP on minority-related issues on television.

    There is also a possibility of BJP fielding her from Vagra in south Gujarat — a constituency with sizeable Muslim voters. Vijay Rupani, spokesperson of Gujarat BJP, welcomed her in the party. At a small ceremony held at state BJP headquarters in Khanpur, Khan said she was impressed with the development in Gujarat under the state chief minister.

    On her her sudden change of heart, she said that it was a gradual process and she is now totally devoted to the cause of the party and will work in whatever capacity the party deems fit.

    ~ BREAKING NEWS !!` Congress nominates haryana Property dealer as Indian PM~
    ————————————————————————————————————–

    REUTERS , 21st OCt : News is just BREAKING in that the Congress working committee has nominated Mr Malik Singh Sherawat, a property DOUBLE dealer from Haryana as the next PM. Mr Sherawat is known to have sold huge areas of land to the Congress dynasty of Rober Zardari and Baby G.

    Mr Sherawat who is also the male version of Mallika Sherawat is known to have helped Mr Rober Zardari with land worth 400 crore sold at an undervalued price of 10 crores.

    Below you can see two photographs welciming the Congress HIgh command decison of converitn Sardar Patel, Nehru and Gandhi’s party into that of dynasty represented by Rober Zardari !

    The working committee members welcome the decison by singing,
    “JO Sonia maalikin kahe humko hai munzoor ji…

    Kyonki hum hai unke nauker ji….”

    The Indian press too welcomed the decision saying , ” Agar hamare malik Robber Zardari ne yeh kahaa hai toh hum decision welcome karte hai… after all rober Zardari for us is bigger than Nehru, Patel, gandhi….”:)

    You really love mr Robert dont you?

    He is as loved in Delhi univ now ! Everyone feels he is a poor speciman of a dynast!. In fact the current joke is “kela… ka matlab kya… Robert bhiaya, robert bhaiya…!”

    The banana split icecream is known as Robert special… in Kamla nagar market!

    Moradabad can certainly do withOUT this sort of fame….

    And yes it does seem strange that the grand old party cant just throw out this taint, instead of defending it all the time.

    4999 rapes, in Khapistan most remain unreported

    Dabra is a typical village in India’s rural Haryana state.

    It has narrow lanes with open drains and small houses built of brick and mud.

    Children play in the dirt, while men sit around smoking. Not many outsiders visit this poor farming community.

    But outside one of the houses two policemen stand on guard.

    Inside, a 16-year-old girl sits in one of the rooms surrounded by women.

    She is the reason the police are here.

    Six weeks ago, she was out walking on the street when she was abducted by a dozen men.

    “They dragged me inside the car and blindfolded me,” she says, staring ahead, her voice steady but emotionless.

    “They took me by the side of a river. There, seven of them took turns to rape me.

    “The others kept watch.”

    Who needs Taliban, when a Khap elder will do the same job.

    Back in Dabra, the impact of what happened a few weeks ago is already apparent.

    “The girls in my neighbourhood have stopped going to school,” the young rape victim says.

    “I am frightened too.”

    b) As per vote surveys, Congress is actually down to 103 seats. We need to kick this dynastic dirty party to about 60 seats and then make them apologise for the huge corruption

    —–
    Activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal has mounted a fresh attack on the BJP president Nitin Gadkari following a TV channel’s finding that a company which allegedly got benefits when Gadkari was a minister in Maharashtra later returned the favour by giving him a loan of Rs. 165 crore.

    Besides, it was alleged that companies that appear to exist only on papers have made substantial investments in Gadkari’s Purti group.

    Hooda government yet to implement Ashok Khemka’s cancellation order on Vadra-DLF deal

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Hooda-government-yet-to-implement-Ashok-Khemkas-cancellation-order-on-Vadra-DLF-deal/articleshow/16907672.cms

    On the validity of Khemka’s order, Anupam Gupta, a senior advocate in Chandigarh, said, “Khemka cancelled the mutation on behalf of the government. He represented and acted as the highest statutory authority under the respective laws. The parties adversely affected by the cancellation of the mutation are Vadra and DLF. If they have any grievance, they should challenge Khemka’s order before the Punjab and Haryana high court. How can the state government claim to be aggrieved by Khemka’s order if Vadra and DLF are not?”

    Gupta added, “Any such action by the government would be testimony to the patronage extended by it to Vadra and DLF.”

    Furtehr shameful is the fact that many people end up applauding the loot by people like Rober Zardari who once pitched himself as PM material, even though he had only loot, and crony capitalism and Imelda Maqrcos type background.

    Surprisingly some foolish guys then sing nauker type praises for the Vadra effort.

    here is the price for your naukarcy:

    N”ever before has the image of the 127-year-old political entity been subject to such public ridicule. Indeed, as it gets flung back and forth virtually every other day from controversy to controversy, even otherwise thick-skinned Congressmen are squirming at the unending downpour of muck drowning their party.Last Friday evening, flipping through the four main English television channels was revealing. On display was the astonishing variety of the Congress’s current woes. In a two-hour exclusive, NDTV offered viewers graphic details of the vast amounts of money paid out by a private steel firm to a certain “VBS”, implicating veteran leader Virbhadra Singh, the party’s spearhead in next month’s assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh. Times Now, meanwhile, was alternating between a Haryana Congress leader’s absurd remark that 90 per cent of raped women in the state had asked for it, and the antics of a gun-brandishing Congress MP in Gujarat. Headlines Today focused on its own sting operation exposing the shenanigans of Union law minister Salman Khursid’s charity trust for the handicapped. Even CNN-IBN offered no respite—it had just unearthed some fresh dope on the dubious real estate deals of Robert Vadra!”

    A letter penned by a Politician father to
    his dear son……….

    My dear son,

    When you went abroad to study, it was with a clear understanding that, once you finish your education you would return to India. We took a family decision when your education ended; that it made sense for you to stay in the US for a few years more, enjoy your youth, money and then return and stand for elections as Member of Parliament from the constituency our
    family has represented for so many decades.

    It has been five years since you left, and, last week, when we spoke on Skype, you told me that you believed that it was time to return. At first, I was delighted. Then, after the call was over, the import of what you planned to do sank in. My impulse was to call you back immediately, but I thought I’d put my thoughts down in an email so that you have a better understanding of what I want to say and why I say it.

    In a nutshell, I do not want you to return to India. The India of today is not the India that you left. Much has changed – and much of the change negatively affects families like ours.

    There is a change in the balance of power in society. People do not understand what people like me, member of parliament, do – and no longer acknowledge that all of us, thanks to the great sacrifices we make for our constituency, do not live like normal people.

    Just the other day, a fellow Member of Parliament was almost shamed in the context ofwhat media is calling a Rs 71 lakh ‘scam’. The media, who no longer seem to have respect for people like us, are harassing him the whole day, treating him like a common cheat.

    Even worse is the case of Robert Vadra, Priyankaji’s husband. It seems DLF lent Robertji Rs 65 crore without any security – and the media and social activists are making that out to be a crime. What crime? Many friends in business have lent me hundreds of crores without any security over the decades – and they haven’t even asked for me to return it. Why would they? After all, as a friend, I’ve helped them on so many instances that they’ve earned fortunes from our friendship. Now, media is making it sound like
    it’s a crime for MPs and ministers to help friends. What a terrible state of
    affairs.

    Sharad Pawar’s nephew has been forced to resign because of some
    allegations on a developmental work that he was involved in. Media says that he helped contractors make extra money by approving of rises in estimates after the contracts were awarded. What is wrong with that? Your grandfather used to do the same with his friends, as did I.

    Ministers like Raja, Kanimozhi and Kalmadi have been jailed because of
    trying to help their friends. This is where our country is going to. No one has
    any respect for our class any more, and the media and social activists are being helped by the courts – they’re ganging up against us.We are trying our best to say and prove that anna Hazaare and others are also corrupt and they are also getting foreign funds to destabilise India…soon Raja and Kanimozhi could become cabinet ministers..because nothing can be
    proved against any politician in India.

    Recently chief Justice Madras highcourt has said publicly that there are complaints against 500 out of 900 judges in Tamilnadu…

    Things are bad in India, son. It is becoming difficult for people like us to carry on in the way we are used to. We are treated like commoners, we are called cheats and thugs. We’re reaching a stage when toll booth attendants expect us to pay – an FIR was filed against an MP who, obviously got upset at the request and threatened the attendant with a gun for his cheek.

    It is getting very petty. The other day, Air-India staff at Guwahati charged three MPs for carrying excess baggage. MPs not being allowed excess baggage on the national airline, and lowly employees of Air-India not respecting them? This is the new India, the India you want to come back
    to!

    We in congress have a plan to say that BJB has also done the chori and we have proof but we did not expose them because we r all in the same political community now we are trying to expose them. When people like Rob Vadra is exposed we have no choice…

    Politics in India is not a good business now. Recently Mr Karunanidhi’s grand son is on the run for no fault of his…This is the status here….

    That’s why I write this note to you. Do not come back to India, and forget about plans on a career in politics.

    Come to Geneva next week; I will meet you there. I will transfer money to your account so that you can invest in a house in New York. As far as business is concerned, maybe you could buy a university nearby. After all, your uncle has six universities in India and they are quite profitable. I will ask him to guide you when you begin your venture.

    Will discuss in detail when we meet next week.

    With love from your father.

    @ Devdutt

    The basic issue is loot and crony capitalism which the Rober zardaris and Baby G’s indulge in.

    Gadkari probably made it all by dint of hard work.

    if he has broken laws he should face the law

    BUT

    More importantly the 1000 cases of tax evasion, crony captialism, threatening officers with death, the snatching of Farmland, the destruction of Indian honesty…. this Rober Zardari and Mummy represent is a shame on the party of Dadabhai Naoroji and Annie Besant.

    Did they and Nehru and Bhagat Singh fight for freedom so that Rober ZARDARi would get everything?

    So every lawbreaker should be probed. Even Gadkari if he has broken laws.

    BUT ROBER ZARDARI AND BABY G EVEN PROBED MORE FOR SNATCHING FARMLAND, CRONY CAPITALISM, DESTROYING SUBHASH’ BOSE’S LEGACY…. FOR UNDERVALUATION OF LAND….

    NOw please dont say ” hum NAUKER hai… AUR ISKO KEHNE SE DARR LAGTA HAI…”

    Haryana to become India’s first men-only state by Dec 2012

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/mocktale/Haryana-to-become-Indias-first-men-only-state-by-Dec-2012/articleshow/16900608.cms?

    GURGAON: Haryana is poised to become India’s first men-only state by year-end, chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda proudly declared at a crowded press conference here on Sunday, amid loud applause by party colleagues and opposition members.
    -

    We have been consistently trying to drive home the point for 20 years now, by perpetrating female feticide, torture by in-laws for giving birth to girls, by female infanticide and by killing and starving girl-children. Women’s suicides have also been abetted. Yet surprisingly, women continue to survive here. We also turned women’s shelter homes into hellholes and tried paedophilia and torture on handicapped and deaf-and-mute women too. Since nothing seems to work, we’re going by law,” he said.

    When Subhash Bose formed the Azad Hind Fauj, would he have ever dreamed that India would one day be captured by a kabza group of utterly corrupt Maalikn , Nalik and Naukers who have declared this to be a country of family rule?

    How would he have reacted when the maalkin and her hsband after doing Kabza of India stole money meant for brave soldiers and let the accomplice thief Quotrochchi who was there partner, fy away?

    How many tears would have Subhash Bose shed when an uneducated Maalkin phoot phoot ke cries for dead terrorists?

    How would have Subahsh Bose SPAT on the faces of Naukers who create spin for this Kabza group?

    Would he have kicked the heartless theif who stole crutches of the handicapped whiel the Naukers danced.

    HOw would have subhash Bose reacted in case he saw that the Rober Zardari cheating India, looting India and THEN CALLING US A BANANA REPUBLIC?

    Digvinash Singh deputes Annie Kohli to debate with Kejriwal!!!!!!!!
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Real identity revealed: Kejriwal was just an ace in the hole in Congress’ greatest deception
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Few hours after the phenomenal drama at Kejriwal’s press conference, during which a self-proclaimed IAC supporter, Annie Kohli, alleged Kejriwal of being a chair-hungry fake activist and demanded his true identity be divulged, a revelation of epic proportions has rocked the nation. A new national news channel, Scams Today, proclaimed thaat the rise of Kejriwal was all part of a brilliantly chalked-out, Machiavellian master plan by none other than the Congress itself. It was supposed to be even bigger than the alleged 9/11 conspiracy staged by the US government in order to further its long term goals.The channel ferreted out a number of classified documents from the dungeons of Congress Party Office on Akbar Road to prove its claim. As per these documents, driven by desperation to avoid a debacle in the 2014 General Elections, the Congress hired Arvind Kejriwal to turn around its fortunes. His job description had 2 briefs: the short term goal was to expose scams at a rapid pace so that people forgot the previous ones very easily. This was evident from the fact that in the heap of those secret papers, files of Kalmadi and A Raja had a layer of dust deposited on them. This was accomplished easily as Congress presented Kejriwal with a scapegoat every other day to expose. They didn’t even spare the first son-in-law in a bid to flummox the public. Salman Khurshid almost jeopardized the plan when he forgot the greater cause and took it personally, but a little dose of madam ji’s pep talk did the trick.The long term objective is even more ambitious. The plan is to erase the BJP’s name from people’s minds before the next elections by giving them as little publicity as possible. This way people would have only Congress in mind when approaching a poll booth. They even have a plan to merge IAC (India Against Corruption) with AICC (All India Congress Committee) and call it IACAICC (India All Congress All India Congress Committee).After the news was broken internationally, noted thriller writer Dan Brown announced his next book ‘The Deceptive Hand’.

    Kejriwal Pathetically Small to Confront Cong: Khurshid

    “He (Kejriwal) is too small,…Pathetically small to be in confrontation with
    our party. An ant does not destroy an elephant…A hundred ants in an elephant
    trunk will not hurt an elephant,” Khurshid told PTI.”

    Law minister of India who had earlier threatened Kejriwal and had called him

    “We are not a banana republic under the command of a despotic monarch,” declares the man who has destroyed what little remained of the credibility of Robert Vadra as a self-made businessman. But then 47-year-old Ashok Khemka has consistently defied the unofficial dictum of the Indian Administrative Service- uska aadesh tumhare dastakhat (the minister’s orders, your signature)-ever since he joined its Haryana cadre in 1991. “We (civil servants) are all part of the sarkar. Prime Ministers and chief ministers are not our masters but jan sevaks (public servants) like the rest of us. But we begin treating these people like kings and queens who must be followed unquestioningly,” he says.

    Here is what the Congressi mafia is doing to Khemka. From India TOday—————–

    ————

    Khemka says the calls, which also warned of a supari (contract) to kill him, are “worrying”. The family gets no protection, and his older son, who is not yet 18, travels frequently between Chandigarh and his law college in south India. Haryana’s Chief Secretary P.K. Chaudhary ignored the officer’s request for security. The pressure is telling on him. At least twice during the marathon TV debates on October 16, Khemka broke down, perhaps pained by the Congress camp’s allegations that questioned his integrity; or possibly overcome by the outpouring of public support flooding the social networks. He is not afraid because he is in the right, he says. “But if there is a price to be paid despite that, I’ll take it as my destiny.”

    @ Various people who invoked me

    Emotional I have seen the Gadkari papers from the media. He can-NOT be indicted for fraud. A driver can become a director in a company. Infact CK Jaffaer Shrieff a driver of Indira gandhi was made the CM of Karnataka and Pratibha Patil whom many point out worked as a cook for SOnia Gandhi, was made the President of India.

    The main point is the source of funds. Forensically speaking we need to check out

    a) SOurce of funds. As we need to check out Vadra’s sources, we can check out Gadkari’s sources.

    b) In-case rules have been broken and officers made to kneel down as it is in Vadra case

    c) In SOnia- Vadra case the quid pro quo is apparent. DLF getting land use change as the Congress president instructed Hooda and Gehlot to bend all rules for making money for her son and son in law. In case Gadkari has done the same we may establish the same.

    Anybody can become a businessman. Even the channels and newpapers who make fun of Gadkari probably have more hidden under their books.

    However if Gadkari is wrong, he should go. Similarly Vadra should be asked to go by Sonia and made to face the CBI and police.

    ** Gadkari’s driver and diwan are the directors of 16 companies which have invested more than 60 crores in Gadkari’s companies.

    ** Manohar Panse, Gadkari’s driver, happened to be a director in five
    of Purti’s investor companies. In fact, between 2009 and 2011, Panse
    was a director in six other companies as well.

    ** Kawdu Pandurang Zade, is known as “Diwan” in the Gadkari household, was a director in 12 holding companies.

    ** Five of the investor companies — Nivita Trades, Swiftsol, Rigma
    Fintrade, Ashwami Sales and Marketing and Earnwell Traders — are shown
    as registered at Dube Chawl, a slum in Mumbai’s Andheri East.

    Ramesh Dube, the owner of the chawl, maintained that no company had
    ever functioned from the area. “I know of no one who has or currently
    operates an office in this colony,” Dube told TOI.

    ** Three other major holders of the Group — Vidya Buildcon, Sanobar
    Infrastructure and Roller Multitrade — are registered at an address, Sri
    Nivas House in Mumbai’s Fort Area, which actually belongs to the
    well-known Somani Group.

    Vinoo,

    There is no doubt at all that all this money has come from Gadkari himself.
    This is a very common practice that businessmen invest their own black
    money in their own companies using ficticious names. Even companies
    are formed outside India, like in Dubai, Mauritius etc from where funds
    are channeled to their companies in India. Black money is sent outside
    using havala channels and that ill gotten money comes back through
    official route. This is a very open secret in which not only Gadkari but many Indian businessmen are involved. However, Vadra case is different.
    He has made his Billions only through his political background without investing a single paisa. Using his political clout he has forced people
    to bend/break many rules. Will he and Gadkari be caught and punished ?
    Your guess is as good as mine .

    Gadkari will probably have to go even though he has done what most businessmen do.

    For the COngress Vadra is a problem

    a) Sonia is a life term president and cant be dumped

    b) VADRA’s billions are so huge that it is the case of the monky getting his hand in the peanut bottle and not leaving the peanut. He will not be able to leave his loot while the people of India wont forgive him and Sonia and Congress.

    Vadra’s wealth should be checked honestly and thoroughly than only we will know how by political patronage some one can ammass huge amount by breaking all the rules in the book. I am sure Vadra is not the only person who has made money using his political clout but he is definitely on of the biggest who made his fortune in such a short span.

And when it gets the better of him he resorts to calling people gadha, gahndoo, hijra etc.

    Hindu Taliban in Mangalore molested girls for not adhering to ‘Indian culture’

    In an absurd turn of events, the truth-teller is being punished for telling the truth. Naveen Sorinjee, the Kasturi TV reporter who broke the story of how Hindu Jagran Vedike (HJV) activists had beaten up and molested young boys and girls in a guest house in Mangalore, Karnataka, has shockingly been named in the chargesheet as orchestrator of the incident.

    On 28 July, around 50 HJV activists barged into the Morning Mist Home Stay located on the outskirts of Mangalore and manhandled a few boys and girls celebrating a friend’s birthday. The goons not only beat up the boys but also stripped and molested girls for not adhering to ‘Indian culture’. Caught on camera by a few reporters, this expose made national headlines, forcing the state BJP government to invoke the Goonda Act against the perpetrators.

    Gadkari C O R R U P T surely not, he is Yaar Yess Yess

    NEW DELHI/NAGPUR: Grave questions have surfaced over the source of funds for Purti Power and Sugar Ltd, controlled by BJP president Nitin Gadkari. Investigations reveal significant investments and large loans to Purti by a construction firm, Ideal Road Builders (IRB) Group, which had won contracts between 1995 and 1999, when Gadkari was the PWD minister in Maharashtra.

    Besides IRB Group, the other significant shareholders in Purti are a clutch of
    16 companies. TOI’s investigations across four cities revealed that most
    addresses in which these companies are registered are unverifiable, and that
    the firms are controlled by Gadkari’s close aides.

    Gujarat less developed than Africa

    Press Council of India chairperson Justice (retired) Markandey Katju on Friday attacked Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his “model of development”, saying that a state with malnutrition rate worse than the national average “cannot be called developed”.

    Speaking at a function organised by the Centre for Social Responsibility, supporting Super 30 coaching centres of Bihar DGP Abhayanand, Justice Katju said the Gujarat model of development was flawed.

    “How can a state having worse malnutrition rate than the national average claim to be developed. Indian children’s health was worse than some African countries,” he said.

    Emotional/Pathak G

    You certainly came out with a bull infused with a double dose of Viagra.

    Unfortunately most of your postulates is sheer naarebaazi more like the cheerleaders of Sri Lanka– with no potency.

    The real issue for forensic analysts is source of funds and tax evasion. In Vadra- Sonia ghotala we can see that there is clear complicity, bending of laws and cheating of the exchequer and shareholders of a public company. Further on, Vadra used influence to brow beat and scare public servants (like the manjunath case) change land use, destroy fertile land for profit.

    If we lift the corporate veil, we can surely nail Vadra for a long haul of penalty and jail.

    In Gadkari’s case the source of funds is the issue. In case he cannot give reasonable explanations he can be questioned. However let me tell you Amitabh bachchan owns 60 companies, Amar Singh owns 119 companies, and many CA’s make 500 comapnies and sell the shell.

    That’s no crime.

    I suggest that you change your team of cheerleading. Change your dress to that of Australian cheerleaders and your words will carry more weight.

    2001 ko phoda nariyal aur banaya “purti group”,
    driver aur diwan ke saath banaya “mixed soup”,

    Wohi contractor Mahiskar bhaag ke aya,
    Gadkari ke buziness mein khoob paisa lagaya;

    3) Driver aur diwan 16 company banaye,
    Gadkari ko laake 60 korod diye;

    4) Wahi Contractor Mahiskar 168 Korod loan diya,
    Vijay, Vinno, Shenoy kehte hain Gadkari paisa nehi khaya;

    5) Mahiskar ka “paid up cappital” sirf 1 lakh tha,
    phir bhi usne diya 168 korod kaise loan yeh kisiko pata nehi tha;

    6) Logon se Gadkari korod rupiya investment uthaya,
    kaun hai woh log khul ke kisiko nehi bataya;

    7) Jab NDTV Panduram aur Panse ka naam bataya,
    Gadkari ne unko na pehchaan ka khub natak kiya;

    Bola nehi ek hai uska driver doosra uska diwan,
    uske hi ghar mein rehte hain phir bhi unka nehi koi pehchaan;

    Pathak G,

    you have tried to “justify” use of obscene language by accusing me of using the same kind of language earlier. But, you forget the context.

    You remember (or have you forgotten your own action?), Engrich was driven away by you for using obscene language and becoming abusive of Hindu gods and saints. Therefore, when this blog got a new pest under the name emotionalathyachar, bloggers were, for some time at least, bewildered at the blog getting bombarded with long posts full of stupid poetry and verses, some of us were indeed misled to believe that engrich had “re-arrived”. My responses were aimed at putting engrich in his place and stopping him from posting the stupid verses.

    You tried to score an advantage by resorting to Hindi in English script, even though the blog is an English language one.

    But, pathak G, that phase is long over. Now we know it is the meaner, baser side of you masquerading as athyachari.

    Now, as the political editor of a big daily, you are expected to maintain your dignity and position.

    Instead, you have chosen to descend to the gutter level and like Salman Khursheed, whom you have been defending so doggedly and ferociously, and have begun guttersniping.

    Using words like gandoo, hijra etc are totally unbecoming of you.

    Clapping stupidly at your own supposed wisecracks by shouting ‘de taali’ is real, real childish.

    Kid gloves
    for Mr Vadra

    The media response to the story has been illuminating.
    Competing for the top slot in the play-it-down competition were the Indian
    Express and the Hindustan Times.

    http://www.thehoot.org/web/Kid-gloves-for-Mr-Vadra/6370-1-1-1-true.html

    Two axioms were
    tested over the last seven or eight days. One, everybody is fair game for the
    media barring the Nehru-Gandhis. And two, increasingly media outlets leave the
    investigating of alleged wrongdoing to whistleblowers. They are content to be
    platforms on which charges are traded or rebutted, or eloquent wrap-up story
    writers. On television they thunder and badger panellists, getting their
    ammunition from the whistleblowers or the follow up stories in newspapers and
    websites. That is pretty much what Arnab Goswami and Karan Thapar among others
    did.

    A forensic analysis of Emotional atyachar :
    —————————————————–

    The boys have forced me to pull down the shutter as this was a holiday anyway.

    So today to test my skills I will try a forensic analysis of Emotional atyachar. Here is how I will zero on him

    a) Shenoy Sahab he is not Vinod Sharma, but a person close to Vinod Sharma, maybe brother, cousin or just a friend

    b) He is definately pro Congress and on the periphery of their propaganda wing.
    He could just be a spin creator. maybe a PR guy or a person who is darzi hiding the huge Congress hole in the undie

    c) His age is between 55-65 and he is definately from Delhi, — West Delhi that is

    d) He has a little knowledge of computers, which Vinod ji may not have.

    e) He likes to entice people into a fight and loves abuses and does not mind getting abused to a huge extent

    My humble take on EmotionalAtyachaar’s few postings below. This is addressed to Shenoy without giving undue advantage to Emotionalatyachaar :
    ===========================================================

    “IF YOU PINCH, YOU WILL GET A TIGHT SLAP IN RETURN”,
    what a thing to hear, Shenoy’s blog journey took a new turn;

    For a man who ruled this blog creating chaos,
    this wasn’t a reply he wasn’t used to hear he was at a loss;

    Shenoy, the cruel poet swept all with a few wit-lets,
    got everybody to swear by his evil design following all his traits;

    The blog started burning in the fire lit by this Sire,
    enjoyed massacre hiding behind the mob he got on hire;

    Small kids fired “abuses” from hips every new second,
    kids became “kasab”, this man had the remote in hand;

    Vinoo and Vijay carried his flag on the front,
    Mohan and Gopi shut their eyes and ears without any grunt;

    Balwinder, Mishra and Parveen became regular court audience,
    forgot all wisdom of age, these men were not there by chance;

    Choicest abuses this sundry group threw at every gentleman,
    people feared their wrath, nobody could live like a decent man;

    Mocking, calling names and abuses became the essence of this blog,
    the host couldn’t do a thing, he was chased by this hounding dog;

    Every morning Shenoy, the Sire would set the tone,
    all hounding dogs would hunt for a new soft bone;

    Day in day out was the story of this blog,
    intellectual discussion got stuck in a bad clog;

    Walked in a man after a long sabbatical,
    he was shocked to see the host of this blog pushed to the wall;

    He engaged Shenoy and his group with a casual move,
    Shenoy branded him as Avatar of Vinod Sharma in a new groove;

    Blind robots became his friends in Shenoy’s new conspiracy theory,
    the man stood his ground he beat them in a hurry;

    Came Atyachaary and turned the table,
    played by their rule, he set a fire in the stable;

    All now run in panic here n there,
    feeling the heat of own game, they are now nowhere;

    Vinoo gets a daily dose for his no-brainer forensic idea,
    Vijay gets a sweet stick on his back for defaming IIT with his dumb kriya;

    But Atyachaari isn’t about taking on this group,
    he enjoys a fine life unless a fly thrown in his soup;

    Atyachaari doesn’t start a fire,
    he isn’t anything like our Shenoy, the Sire;

    RSS can’t do a Sonia with BJP: Power without responsibility

    http://www.firstpost.com/politics/rss-cant-do-a-sonia-with-bjp-power-without-responsibility-501958.html

    The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), fountainhead of various Sangh Parivar
    organisations, including the BJP, seems to have developed both amnesia and
    schizophrenia.
    Speaking to the faithful on Vijayadashami Day in Nagpur, RSS chief Mohan
    Bhagwat made several remarks which should not go unchallenged.
    With allegations about BJP president Nitin Gadkari’s unwholesome capers
    flying think and fast, Bhagwat—who could not ultimately evade the topic—told
    newspersons that Gadkari was an “internal matter of the BJP”.

    Mohan,

    Here is my response to Jagannathan, the author of this article:

    Jagannathan is wrong on several counts.

    RSS cannot take any decision on Gadkari, just as it cannot on Modi going his own way or Yeddyurappa amassing wealth. They are not bound by the RSS diktats in any case. The same goes for the BJP too.

    Jagannathan and his fellow media leaders too who are trashing the RSS on Gadkari themselves suffer from instant amnesia. Look, who is talking about Vadra and his illegally amassed billions? Nobody. Practically no editor talks about Vadra today or calling upon Sonia Gandhi what she intends to do about him or about Hooda or even about Khemka, even though Vadra made the money using her name and her position as the power behind the throne.

    One small apology from Veerbhadra Singh and the media has shown that it is capable of showing great forgiveness and also forgetfulness!

    Jagannathan is also guilty of forgetting himself of the distinction between Vadra, Raja, Kalmadi, 2G, Coalgate etc on the one hand and Gandkari on the other. The former are all guilty , with proof, of robbing the nation’s wealth, while Gadkari is as yet suspected of only financial misdemeanors. Even though all the “liberal” editors would love to condemn him to a long jail term, none of them has accused him of robbing the nation of its wealth like the others have.

    Once I was asked by my Friend, “What is the secret behind your happy married life?”

    I said, “You should share responsibilities with due love and Respect each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems.”

    He asked, “Can you explain?”

    I said, “In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other’s decisions.”

    Still not convinced, Friend asked me “Give me some examples”

    I said,” Smaller issues like, which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator , monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc etc….

    are decided by my wife. I just agree to it”

    He asked, “Then what is your role?”

    I said,” My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran , whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe , whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc etc and Do you know one thing,

    An Interview with a HINDU TALIBAN

    Khaps say child brides, chowmein ban are solutions to sex crimes

    Following daily reports of rape in Haryana, and the suggestions made by some khap leaders on how to stop such crimes, JV went to interview a khap spokesman.

    JV: With such incidents taking place every day, Haryana has earned the notorious title of the Rape State of India. What do you say to that?

    Khap spokesman: Rape State? Really? I knew that Haryana was the Wheat State of India, growing as it does more wheat than any other state in the country, the claims of that upstart Punjab notwithstanding. But i didn’t know we also produced the most rapeseed for rape oil. You live and learn.

    JV: Not rape as in rapeseed for oil. Rape as in sexual assaults on women, which many feel is a worse crime than murder.

    KS: Oh, that sort of rape. We don’t call that sort of rape a rape. We call it outraging the modesty of a woman. Which then becomes a matter for an honour killing, because the honour of the entire community has been tarnished by the crime.

    JV: You mean an honour killing of the rapist?

    KS: No, an honour killing of the victim, who had no business going and getting her modesty outraged in the first place and so bringing badnami to all of us. But not to worry. We’ve been thinking of solutions on how to stop women getting their modesty outraged. Get them married off at 16.

    JV: Married at 16? How is that going to stop cases of rape?

    KS: Oh, you think 16 is already too much? OK, we can always make it 14. Twelve? Six?

    JV: Surely child marriage – or any marriage for that matter – isn’t going to prevent rape. Even married women get raped, no matter how young or old they are.

    KS: Maybe you’re right. That’s why, apart from promoting child marriage, we’re also thinking of stopping people from eating chowmein.

    JV: Chowmein? What on earth doesn chowmein have to do with rape?

    KS: It is a well-known scientific act that chowmein – and other fast foods like chowmein, which are becoming only too popular with young people here – have a very bad heating effect upon the system and create a hormonal imbalance in the body. And anything can happen when you have a whole lot of hormonally imbalanced bodies hanging about. Look at China.

    JV: China? What’s China got to do with any of this?

    KS: China has got everything to do with it. Isn’t China where chowmein comes from? And doesn’t China have the world’s largest population, more even than that of our own Bharat Mata? How much more proof do you need of hormonal imbalance and what it can do? Maybe the next thing we should ban is pizza. You never know with all those home deliveries, and what they might result in.

    JV: I don’t think banning fast foods is going to stop rape.

    KS: Maybe you’re right again. Maybe what we really need to do is to get to the root of the problem of women getting their modesty outraged. And the root of this problem is obvious: women. If there were no women, no woman could possibly have her modesty outraged, could she?

    JV: But women constitute half the population of the country, and they can’t just be wished away.

    KS: Oh yes, they can. And in fact they are already being wished away. Not just in Haryana, but all over India. It’s the biggest wishing away since the Holocaust. And it’s called female foeticide.

    SECOND OPINION
    ++++++++++++++++++

    The doctor said, ‘ Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration’.

    You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.’

    Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He had no choice but to go under the knife.

    AND HE DID.

    When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life.

    He saw a men’s clothing store and thought, ‘That’s what I need… A new suit…’
    He entered the shop and told the salesman, ‘I’d like a new suit..’
    The elderly tailor eye d him briefly and said, ‘Let’s see… Size 44 long.’
    Joe laughed, ‘That’s right, how did you know?’
    ‘Been in the business 60 years!’ the tailor said.
    Joe tried on the suit, it fit perfectly.
    As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, ‘How about a new shirt?’
    Joe thought for a moment and then said, ‘Sure.’
    The salesman eyed Jo e and said, ‘Let’s see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.’
    Joe was surprised, ‘That’s right, how did you know?’
    ‘Been in the business 60 years.’
    Joe tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly.
    Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, ‘How about some new underwear?’
    Joe thought for a moment and said, ‘Sure.’
    The salesman said, ‘Let’s see… Size 36.
    Joe laughed, ‘Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old.’
    The salesman shook his head, ‘You can’t wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.’

    One chor accusing another chor. Is that the truth about the Jindal vs Zee spat ? Could be and many of us think so ? News in India ..whether print or electronic is in the hands of businessmen…and for them it is like any business… selling garments.. or toothpaste…. or news .The bottomline is money. This story came out but there would be so many other such stories which were never reported. The Nira Radia tapes were also a revelation of the same which the country suspected .. but was waiting for some convincing evidence. so finally it is official …that the media is also a chor ..so the lesson for us … whenever we see or read news .. be alert and keep appraising .

    Invite a lot of Guests home. Serve them a 5 course meal.

    One gentleman complains about a little “extra salt” in a salad.

    Some of the guest agree and nod. They agree with the gentleman that there is “extra salt” in the salad, yet they they want to enjoy their meal and wouldn’t mind leaving the salad aside.

    Encouraged by the agreement of other guests, the man starts complaining hoarse about the “extra salt”. His voice gets shriller. He starts dancing on the table shouting about the “extra salt”. He calls for the head of the host for “offending the guests”.

    The guests are surprised. They stop eating and stare at the man.

    The man thinks that all guests are mad at the host. That’s why they stopped eating.

    Encouraged by the silence of other guests, the man goes amok and threatens to ravage the ktchen and set the host’s house on fire.

    Zee releases CD showing Jindal demanding money for not showing sting CD of Zee demanding money
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    In what is being called a reverse-reverse-sting, Zee TV has released footage showing Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) chairman, Naveen Jindal, trying to extort Rs.400 crores from Zee TV editors in return for not airing footage of Zee executives demanding Rs.100 crores from Jindal in return for the channel not airing damaging stories on irregularities in coal block allocations to Jindal’s company.

    At a dramatic press-conference, Zee Chairman, Subhash Chandra, distributed a CD with footage of the so called ‘reverse-reverse-sting’, showing Jindal and Zee executives huddled over the CD of the reverse–sting, attempting to come to a new arrangement, in Café-Coffee day.

    “You think only he can play this game. Well, let me tell you, we ain’t fools either. We had anticipated him making a counter-offer to our Rs. 100 crore offer and we duly recorded it with hidden cameras. We did not want to go public with this, but Jindal has forced our hand by going public with his reverse sting,” fumed the Zee chairman.

    JSPL has not reacted officially to the latest round of footage, but a senior executive said they will soon be releasing footage of Zee demanding money for not airing footage of Jindal demanding money for…(Editor: er…hope you get the drift. This is getting painful to type over and over again).

    Insiders say that both the groups have footage of Nth order stings where N > 100. (i.e sting on a sting on a sting on a…). “These chaps met almost on a daily basis to come to settle on new terms, the price escalating exponentially to somewhere around Rs.1L crore when the latest round of negotiations were going on. At this point, Jindal lost his nerve and went public with his reverse sting, leading to everything spilling over into the public domain,” said a Jindal executive.

    (a,b) represents Rs a crores notional loss/gain to Jindal’s reputation and Rs b crores notional loss/gain to Zee’s reputation, for each set of choices

    While pundits are hailing the unfolding spectacle as a fine exposition of game theory, leading game-theorist, Professor Avinash Dixit of Princeton University, thinks otherwise and says both the players have behaved ‘irrationally’ (economist term for extremely dumb behavior). “This is an example of a horrible non-Nash equilibrium outcome based on irrational behavior, wherein the players, instead of colluding to quietly strike a deal of Rs. 25 crore or thereabouts, chose to foolishly compete in out-stinging each other, resulting in tremendous loss of reputation to both parties. Thoo,” hissed Professor Dixit.

    Or to paraphrase the great Ravi Shastri, in this particular game: “In the end, no one is the winner.”

    ~~~~~~~THE LOOT AND LOOT OF ROBERT VADRA ~~~~
    ————————————————————————————————————–

    Robert Vadra is symbolic of what all is wrong in the COngress. No brains, no talent but theft based on dynastic succession. Plus a host of paid propogandists willing to lie from both ends to cover gross violations of law.

    News is accumalating that Robert Vadra amassed about 1600 acres of land in Rajasthan itself in GROSS violations of Indian laws which don’t permit anybody to own more than 20 acres. If Nehru abolished Zamindari, his legacy has been captured by Vadra who broke all possible laws and accumalated 2000 acres BY UNDERPAYING farmers.

    The whole Indian state was reduced to his slave– Chief Ministers, Ministers, journalists, bloggers, Sewa dal et al.

    Yet there are people like MJ Akbar who dont get sold for petty gains.

    Vadra spat at India by calling us a banana republic. His naukers– even on this blog– do a mujra for him.

    BUT MJ AKBAR WILL figth on behalf of India and reduce him to dust. And so will many of us.

    Vadra makes a killing in Rajasthan: Genius or inside info

    http://www.firstpost.com/politics/vadra-makes-a-killing-in-rajasthan-genius-or-inside-info-504225.html

    You got to hand it to the man. Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, has the Midas touch when it comes to picking real estate.

    We all know how he managed to more than triple his money on a Rs 15.3 crore piece of land in Manesar, Gurgaon, with a little bit of help from friends like DLF, who bought from him for Rs 58 crore (read here).

    In Rajasthan, he managed to do even better. This time he managed to multiply his landed wealth 40 times.

    According to a report by CNN-IBN, which accessed the documents in Rajasthan’s Bikaner district, least 20 plots measuring over 770 hectares were picked up by Vadra’s firms just months after the Ashok Gehlot government came to power.

Are the agencies giving a blow by blow account to their political masters ? If the agencies come up with nothing will the officers meet the same fate as Ashok Khemka ? Will there be a new set of 4 Dy . Commissioners ala Haryana Govt . to somehow throw up some findings against Gadkari ?
    Cut to Robert Vadra. 4 Cabinet rank Ministers rush to his rescue . Did they carry Vadra ’s Vakalatnama ? Or did they have his Power of Attorney to speak on his behalf ?

    Yes Vadra is a prime example of crony capitalism. To make matters worse, his attitude towards Indians smacks of racism and a wannabe white. Imagine calling us a banana republic.

    Land laws in India dont permit holdings of more than 20 acres. All builders buy land in parcels o 10- 20 acres under different names– their driver, chacha, brother etc etc and gt a land use change.

    In case of Vadra the state government has bent itself in doggie positon to please him.

    I dont know why IAC is not after Vadra for this gross gross GROSS violation. Myabe MJ Akbar– a man with great character– will pick this up.

    Last night I tried probing Devdutt Kumar on this question. All he could do was to mumble Gadkari Gadkari all the time.

    I believe Rajat Gupta should have been sentenced for a larger time period — The crime deserved upto 10 years in prison; I think the Judge was lenient. Rajat Gupta did commit crimees — the sad thing is that, he did not need the money; he did not need any more fame – he was on one on one with all the who is who including PMs Presidents etc. I really believe he thought he could get away with these, these “”little crimes”, those Indians in India will say “chaltha hai”. He had the audacity to use the board room telephone to provide info to insider traders! He must have thought he is untouchable
    Now Vikram , my sense is, a case of a racial/ttribal thought process. He has done a great job at Citi; the last quarter was one of the best. Oneil, the chairman worked behind the scenes to persuade a majority of the board members to join him to demand his resignation. The chairman and Vikram did not get along from day 1; Oneil (the chairman) was a candidate for the CEO job; but the board then chose Vikram. Oneil became the chairman when the prior chairman retired last year. This guy manipulated behind the scenes on pure personal grudge – but they covered it under “Vikram was not communictive enough” bjah bjah I think they would not have done it if a whitie was in his place.

    Rahul running a fraud company: Subramanian Swamy

    http://www.rediff.com/news/report/rahul-running-a-fraud-company-says-subramanian-swamy/20121027.htm

    Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Saturday
    accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi [ Images ] of running a fraud company and
    of misusing government facilities.

    While addressing a press conference in Ahmedabad [ Images ], Swamy said that Gandhi had
    owned a company called Back-Ops Private Limited and had indulged in wrong doings
    to keep it afloat.

    He claimed that the office of the company was
    registered at a government bungalow in New Delhi [ Images ] which had been registered in the names of Gandhi’s
    sister Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadra.

    As per the Janata Party chief, Rahul also gave out
    conflicting turnover statements of the company in the assets declaration form
    before the last general elections, which put a question mark on the credibility
    of the company.

    Swamy claimed that the setting up of a private
    company in a government residence is illegal.

    Sangh Parivar rejects Narendra Modi’s candidature for PM post

    Majority of RSS leaders have denied their support to Narendra Modi as NDA’s Prime Ministerial candidate As per sources, Narendra Modi’s candidature may cast shadow on BJP’s prospects for Lok Sabha polls in 2014

    RSS fears that the Opposition may attack BJP’s secular credentials if Modi is
    fielded for PM post

    RSS also believes that the major issues like corruption and price rise (that the
    BJP is going to take up as major issues against Congress) may lose its
    significance if Modi is fielded and the Gujarat riots become more prominent,
    hence imposing shadow on BJP’s electoral prospects

    Senior BJP leader and renowned lawyer, Ram Jethmalani, had recently favoured Modi’s candidature for PM post

    Jethmalani considers Modi as the best choice for the post

    Before Modi-RSS meet, Jethmalani said that Mohan Bhagwat had endorsed his view

    RSS leader Ram Madhav later clarified that choosing the Prime Ministerial candidate is BJP’s prerogative.

    During 2010 Bihar Assembly election campaign, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar took strong exception over a poster featuring him and Modi together holding hands

    Later Modi was not allowed to come to Bihar for poll campaign

    Some recent media reports also suggested that Nitish Kumar outrightly rejected Modi’s candidature for PM post

    On October 20, Nitish Kumar, whose party JD (U)is contesting Gujarat Assembly polls separately, announced not to campaign for party candidates in Gujarat.

    Cabinet reshuffle: UPA elephant gives birth to a mouse

    http://www.firstpost.com/politics/cabinet-reshuffle-upa-elephant-gives-birth-to-a-mouse-506153.html

    The UPA elephant went into labour on Sunday, accompanied by much thunderous trumpeting and foot-stomping. Astrologers who had peered at planetary alignments and deconstructed horoscopes  promised that the born-again UPA Cabinet would bring about a major “image makeover” of the government – one that would set the tone for the remainder of its term. The new-born, we were promised, would bear the genetic code of Rahul Gandhi, and brim with youthful vigour.

    But after all the fretful exertions of the Cabinet reshuffle of Sunday, the verdict is in: the elephant, it appears, has given birth to a mouse.

    This was perhaps one of the most anti-climactic Cabinet reshuffles ever, and in large part the exercise fell victim to the irrational heightening of expectations ahead of it.

    She
    continued, “He is going to try to feel your Assets; you are going to like that,
    but don’t let him do that.

    He is going to try to put his hand somewhere
    inappropriate; you are going to like that, but don’t let him do that.

    Then the grandmother said, “But, most importantly, he is going to try to
    get on top of you and have his way with you. You are going to like that, but
    don’t let him do that. It will disgrace the family.”

    With that bit of
    advice in mind, the granddaughter went on her date and could not wait to tell
    her grandmother about it.

    The next day she told her grandmother that her
    date went just as the old lady said.

    The Real Fake

    Bitter Twitter truth for Narendra Modi

    Ankur Jain, TNN | Oct 27, 2012, 05.40AM IST

    According to an internet tool, Status People, launched by a group of engineers
    in London, Modi’s account has 46 per cent fake and 41 per cent inactive users.

    AHMEDABAD: Everyone likes followers. On Wednesday, when chief minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account touched one million followers, he tweeted, “A
    million followers! These are not mere numbers but it signifies your love and
    affection. Heartfelt thanks to you all”.

    However, all the love and affection Modi is overwhelmed with might not be all
    genuine. Modi, who is often accused by Congress leaders of misleading people with numbers, has around 50 per cent of his Twitter followers as fake.

    There is little or no doubt about the fact that India has become very adapt and agile at adopting western technology. India leads the world at per capita use of
    Ultra Sound Scan technology. It also leads in the the art of sexing the foetus at an early stage of prgnenacy and to abort the foetus if it is likely to develop into a girl child.

    A further much more sinsiter development of this basic cruelty is that now Fair-skinned high caste women are being paid 1,600 dollars more to be surrogate mothers than their dark-skinned, low-caste rivals, an Indian study
    has revealed.

    India has become a medical tourism destination for fertility treatment and surrogacy among both childless Western and Indian couples from around the world.

    The technological innovation that is underpinning this additional service – widely practiced in India by highly trained but poorly educated butchers – is based around ordinary colour digital camera which is used to make precise estimates of colour (CIELAB values) and spectral reflectance. This technique makes low cost monitoring of skin colour based on digital photography feasible. Being camera-based, the method allows us to combine accurate measurement of spatial pattern and time course of colour change, which is very difficult with conventional methods.

    Ultra sound scanning huts in India have started to develop services which offer prospective mothers a Pantone colour chart and monthly pictures of their foetus. At any stage if the foetus’s colour goes out of range of acceptable skin colour – at a nominal cost – abortion is offered.

    Innovations like that make one proud to be an Indian.

    This is a copied from another website -Outlook- where a blogger has posted these comments.

    -

    Jaipal Reddy had imposed 7000 crores penalty on Reliance for producing 33 %
    of the Gas from KG -Rava Field .The reduction in Production of Gas resulted in
    steep fall of production of Fertilizers and Power .

    Penalty was imposed per agreement entered by GOI and RIL .
    Jaipal Reddy
    was not budging at all and was implementing the Agreement in Letter and Spirit
    .This was very inconvinient to RIL.

    Menwhile CAG had asked for scrutiny of the KG- RAVA production and working
    procedures . Reliance said they are not Govt organization and hence not
    answerable to CAG .Jaipal Reddy drew an Memorandum and system where by Reliance
    was to give Data to GOI and who in turn will answer CAG .

    The System devised by Reddy is to be implanted hence forth .

    All of a sudden Jaipal Reddy has been dropped as Minster of Petroleum and Gas
    ! !!!

    And the replacement is Moily the most efficient ex Law Minster who gave clean
    chit in 24 hrs to—–???– ???? .

    Jaipal reddy was sulking and never wanted to take the charge of new Ministery
    .Finally at 17.30 hrs he was persuaded by Congress to take charge .

    But in disgust he never went to hand over the charge to Mr Moily as the
    protocol demanded .

    Meanwhile there were protests in Hyderabad over shifting of Reddy .

    Rahul Gandhi also undervalued land, evaded tax: Om Parkash Chautala

    http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-10-18/india/34554568_1_robert-vadra-land-deals-rahul-gandhi

    JALANDHAR: Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) chief and former Haryana CM Om
    Parkash Chautala on Wednesday alleged that Robert Vadra as well as Congress
    general secretary Rahul Gandhi
    bought land in Haryana at prices much below market rates and evaded stamp duty
    by undervaluing the sales.

    Demanding a judicial probe, Chautala alleged the state government was
    hand-in-glove with Gandhi and Vadra and helped them seal land deals.
    Chautala alleged Vadra purchased a total 74 acres for around Rs 1.64 crore in
    eight land deals, Rahul bought 6.5 acres — all in Palwal district — in 2008 and
    2009.

    —-

    Chautala further alleged that Vadra also purchased land from dalits which
    they were allotted in 1981 after consolidation and, according to law, this land
    could be transferred only to a dalit.

    “In Mauja Hassanpur village Vadra’s companies purchased around 30 acres of
    land from dalit families, which was legally wrong, as the land allotted to
    dalits after land consolidation in 1981 could be transferred only to a dalit,”
    Chautala alleged.

    He further alleged that in the same village Vadra’s companies purchased
    around 74 acres of land. Out of total eight land deals executed in 2008 and 2009
    in the village, in seven cases land prices were shown to be paid at Rs 2 lakh
    per acre or even less, Chautala alleged, adding that while the collector rate
    was much higher at Rs 8 lakh per acre.

    [Reply]

    vijay ! Reply:

    @ Mohan

    Chautala is very right here. The land Rahul purchased was worth at least

    20 lakhs an acre in 2008 and what Vadra purchased was at least 30 lakhs per acre then.

    Why am I so sure?

    I have an amla farm in this region. Inherited form my father.

    If the deals of Vadra and Rahul are properly and honestly checked,

    A Village Rape Shatters a Family, and India’s Traditional Silence.

    October 28, 2012 6:02 pm

    By JIMn YARDLEY (Him with a शवेत्म लिंगम, climbing up the hate India Greasy Pole, just Like Manu Joseph)

    DABRA, India — One after the other, the men raped her. They had dragged the girl into a darkened stone shelter at the edge of the fields, eight men, maybe more, reeking of pesticide and cheap whiskey. They assaulted her for nearly three hours. She was 16 years old.

    When it was over, the men threatened to kill her if she told anyone, and for days the girl said nothing. Speaking out would have been difficult, anyway, given the hierarchy of caste. She was poor and a Dalit, the low-caste group once known as untouchables, while most of the attackers were from a higher caste that dominated land and power in the village.

    It might have ended there, if not for the videos: her assailants had taken
    cellphone videos as trophies, and the images began circulating among village
    men until one was shown to the victim’s father, his family said. Distraught,
    the father committed suicide on Sept. 18 by drinking pesticide. Infuriated,
    Dalits demanded justice in the rape case.

    “We thought, We lost my husband, we lost our honor,” the mother of the rape
    victim said. “What is the point of remaining silent now?”…..

    Mr. Vinod, you have tried to put forward a very balanced analysis of Mr. Kejriwal & Co.’s movement against corruption. The answer to your question is Mr. Kejriwal & his gang is not fighting corruption, they are deffinately fanning discontent. You say that Mr. K & his IAC has captured popular imagination and succeeded largely in becoming the voice of people, people who are denied justice and fairplay.Sorry Sir, I do not agree with you. what people are you talking about?, who are these people who are denied justice & fairplay? These white coller – middleclass society, majority of whom are in Metroes and cities are highly hippocratic and selfish. They got all the benefit of the economic progress in India (proof-look at the rush in Malls, Pubs,Multiplexes in cities), these are the ones who indulge in corruption when it suits them!, & yet, these are the first to shout & criticize Govt. on every thing!. The fact of the matter is there is a vast ’silent majority’ of ‘have nots’ who live in villages, small towns and zuggi zopadi’s in cities who have no voice, no say in anything, they are the ones who have to face corruption in day to day life from Cops or Babu’s in Govt. offices who are the brothers of Arvind Kejriwal, that is the real suffering of the ‘Comman Man’ (who’s Topi Keriwal is wearing!) not corruption at Ministerial level or the higher ups that Kejriwal harps daily!
    As for your last question : Can Kejriwal script a happy ending ?, the answer is ” The Bubble has to burst one day”

    Sunita, this is a very astute observation, and it is true! Our beloved Italian ex-maid and her university drop-out son are all smiles all the time….and for a very good reason. They arel in smiles as they are “walking” to the bank virtually by the hour and they just cannot contain their joy.
    Mama Mia has proved to outgun the “resourcefulness” of 3 generations of most corrupt Prime Ministers our country ever had, and that too, by not being a Prime Minister!
    It is not for nothing we Indians are so thrilled to see our beloved “queen’s mugshot”, 4th in the list of the Wealthiest politicians of the world with an estimated wealth (at 2011) over US$ 21 Billion.

    NM is like a poor church mouse in comparison, and sadly, he has proved that he is unconcerned with personal squirreling, he is a man with a mission.
    Some “idiots” prefer someone who wants our country to once again become firm and strong, and are are happy to support him so long as he is dedicated to strengthen the core of India’s nationhood , that has been so terribly compromised with unprincipled posturing and rampant corruption that has been destroying the vitals of our nation.

    Lets grow up people, you do not have to attack somebody because he/she made comments about a person that you feel are not laudatory (even if they are true). If Mr Modi has a certain expression, he probably has a good reason for it.

    In trying to defend Mr Modi, we are becoming like the Congresswallahs – anybody/anything that says anything that “appears” uncomplimentary about “the leader” has to be riled against and shouted down

It is a different matter that those images do not find their way in the newspapers…and the reasons for that would be better known to you than us.

    Your blog also reminds me of Calcutta and late Jyoti Basu …where I lived during 1982-87and at that time almost everyone I met whether a CPM supporter or not ..was a great admirer of Jyoti Basu. and they would say with great pride ..”that he is a CM who is never known to smile.”
