Pakistan vs Fauji plans



In the Land of the Pure, called Pak
A new military chief always spurs talk
Will he? Won’t he? Will he? Won’t he?
Will he take over or let the PM be?

His name is Sharif, same as the premier
Brothers they are not, so there’s still fear
Will the new general act like the old Mush
And give the elected PM a nasty push?

The faujis may invoke Kashmir or Taliban
Blame corruption or Balochistan
Seek some order, and then some law
Or poke the borders to find some flaw

They are used to power, not salutes to civvies
A spot of golf and some Scotch if you please
But they’ll jump to invoke the name of Islam
And then cosy up the mighty Uncle Sam

It does not matter which side they lean
They’re used to zar, zoru and zameen
In comfort with gold, women and land
Without some power, life would be bland!

Ayub and Yahya, Mush and Zia
Have left behind questions, oh dear!
Only time will tell, who’s really who
in a land that’s seen many a coup!

    Prahlad,

    I really admire your ardour for Tehelka and also your simplicity.

    The stings Tehelka carries out are all paid jobs it soes for the congress party. It has, in the case of the army officers hired prostitutes to destroy the life of the officers.

    The SC didn’t take any cognisance of the expose’s on Modi it flaunted on the TV channnels with the “dedicated” journalists flourishing their ware. This single instance shows its credibility.

    When the whole country was agog with expose’ after expose’ in the CWG, 2G, Adarsh, etc amounting to over Rs.2 lakh crores, Tehelka didn’t even get a whiff of any of the huge scams!!!!!!! And it was and is still gloating over the 1lac Bangaru Laxman took as donation for party work.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHETHER IN THE BANGARU CASE, OR THE GENERALS’ CASE, IT WAS ALL IMAGINARY CONTRACTS. NOT A SINGLE CASE OF BRIBERY IS MADE OUT IN ITS SO CALLED EXPOSE’S IN REAL CONTRACTS.

    Shenoy Sir,

    I would not like to debate hard with you. But I would like to point out the famous Tehelka sting operation was well planned with a proper firm seeking order from the army and in the process it exposed the wrong doings that usually happen in army. Jaya Jaitley, Bangaru all fell for their greed.

    On the other hand take the case of “Cash for Vote”. BJP took the help of colourful “Hindustani” guy [ I request all bloggers to search and just see the person's photograph to know the kind of company Shri Sudhir Kulkarni, Arun Jaitley and L K Advani keep to get their dirty work done] and called middlemen to connect the politicians from Congress. They failed. Then they started contacting SP and got access to Amar Singh. All these things happened just 16 hours before the Voting in the parliament. The fixers’ desperate attempts were all caught on audio tape.

    I must say Mr Advani really took a very low level approach to realise his dream of discrediting UPA and fulfill his own ambition to become the PM.

    The Tajender pest was expelled by Vinod ji from his blog, but he has sneaked back into the discussions here with his obscenities. And the fake Ravi, who really is an ISI plant here, goes all out in support of the pest.

    This is what ails the blog.

    But, I can assure you one thing, and that is that this situation cannot remain static. It has to change. If we cannot get the change all want, then we have the hig highway to take, which Binoy Hegde and Dr. Mishra took.

    Mr Shenoy

    It seems that it is now your turn to start shouting Modi Modi, Rape, Rape.

    Have a read of this.

    Patriarch of Hindu nationalism the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has lent its support to BJP President Nitin Gadkari as their candidate of choice for prime ministerial position in the 2014 elections instead Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

    So how is this fight between Modi Vs Gadkari panning out.

    Isn’t it a bit premature.

    I hope the following is something that you may consider as a part of the big picture.

    In BJP’s internal politics, is the RSS performing the role of an Umpire or the Twelfth man?

    Hitherto, Mohan Bhagwat has publicly stated – which had only ever been accepted by those who whole accept anything he says – that the RSS has abandoned the non-interference policy and will now follow a much more interventionist policy. It has decided that it will chose personalities that the party will project. In this regard it favours Gadkari over Modi.

    ~~~ RAVI FINALLY AN FULLY DIAGNOSED ~~~
    =======================================================================

    As a senior blogger Vinoo59 pointed out this blog has fallen in quality ever since sophisticated TU rd Ravi and Pak-shit-stani Engrich have taken over the physical space.

    Out of the last 50 posts, this madcap duo of Osama and Al zawahari have posted 30, making the blog tiresome for others.

    As a person with more than a passing interest in psychology I have diagonosed Ravi’s problems. On this blog itself he has confessed that he has not been able to see his manhood for 20 years becasue fo a huge beer belly.

    I think this has resulted in him becoming a fan of **** Engrich and his manhood !! :) :)

    No wonder he starts singing Engrich’s song every second !!

    To him I would suggest.”Buy a big bathroom mirror, Ravi… and get over it !! ”

    ravi, if you cannot say anyting in a thousand words, you probably wont be able to say it a million. I think you can do better than this,

    The message in all of the postings is same , An anti RSS theory and abuse towards fellow blogmates. As a dispassionate observer I can tell you that this is not healthy bloggging, but just abuse fo teh space the HIndustan Times gives us all,

    for example vijay had written the stanzas of a song– kasme Vaade pyaar wafaa– a song which I used to sing in school. Now all of us could have enjoyed the verse and the imagery…

    But you chose to be abusive.

    Can’t you just leve your past behind and try to change in life…?

    I have one question

    Is the RSS some kind of a “holy cow” that cannot be criticised or taken to the cleaners?

    I do not know whose side you are on or whether you are dispassionate observer (and I do not wish to know it does not matter to me – what matters is what you or anyone posts, but picking up on one for blame-game and blind to others’ shenanigans (ignore the message/topic and attempt to shoot the messenger is one such – many times in an uncivilised manner and wishing the other side will remain gentlemanly), is just not done. There is no one-way street in discussions. I wish you could go through a couple of blogs (not the last 50 or so postings) and check who is doing what, then perhaps you will get the true picture.

    BTW, my sincere advice to all for the past couple of blogs – if you do not like/disapprove a post – the best policy is to ignore it, but it seems here is the case of the two monsters feeding on each other and enjoying it.

    Sorry guys, I am about to take a diversion.

    The death of Jagjit Singh just reminded me how fickle life can be … but how your words can speak evocatively even after you are no more.

    “Mere geet amar kar do…” was Jagjit Singh at his best. And definately his songs will soar in the sky forever.

    For a madcap like me who liked to shake his body at a Disco on English pop or Daler’s Bhangra rap, the introduction to Jagjit really came through a ghazal night at Siri Fort, where Jagjit’s melliflous voice got etched into my heart and emotions for forever.

    Even though my own musical voice has been often been blamed to have a glass cracking effect, I still would still like to list a personal favourite, a song which my ex boss sang for his bride, at a private gathering a day before his marriage..

    Tumko dekhaa to ye kayaal aayaa

    Vijay Kumar, Mohan,

    it is indeed a sad day for all music lovers. Jagjit Singh was a decent human being, a man with the rich resonant voice like Hemant Kumar. He was never loud. Melody was his second name. I join millions of music lovers in mourning his death. His songs and ghazals will always remind us of his special place in our life.

    Yes, the couplet you qouted was amongst his best.

    Another thing ironical about Jagjit Singh was how he was rated for “not being pure enough.’ I remember a discussion I participated in, where somebody said that Jagjit Singh could not be called a ghazal Singer becasue he was not a “purist’ in terms of raag and classical music. Say as compared to Gulam Ali or Mehdi Hasan.

    While I do believe that Jagjit Singh did have a sound classical background, I always felt that he had actually got the strains of classical melody to my generation reared on English and HIndi pop.

    Is’nt it ironical that sometimes we dont value our best in thier lifetime?

    His “ahista… ahista…

    is a song I would and everybody should sing on their honey moon..

    sarakatii jaaye hai ruKh se naqaab ahista ahista
    nikalataa aa rahaa hai aaftaab ahista ahista

    Sunita, the tone and texture of your article (rather non-article) is mschievous. The photo is of Raj Thakeray, and not of the vandals who attacked police in Mumbai, Pune and Lucknow. Now Raj Thackeray’s protest march met “official” dead-ends but the Raza axcademy was given a carte-blanche to hold their rally against the supposed killings of the Rohingyas in Mynanmar. So many policemen injured and so many vehicles and properties set to flames. While Raj Thakeray’s protest march was absoloutely peaceful!
    The organizers of these violent rallies are roaming scot free! The originators of the threatening SMSes are also roaming scott free. Several scores of thousands have been compelled to leave their jobs and rush to safety and the Home Ministry announces that the SMSes originated from Pakistan!
    The ‘dalals’ as you are not calling the bluff of the Government that does not want any action taken againt these organizations that sent out the hate and terror SMSes or oganized violent protests, and you are planting a red herring with subtly shifting the onus on Raj Thackeray.
