Why is India still a Developing Country ?

An Old Story:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out i
n the cold.
Indian Version:
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.
NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.
Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter .
Mayawati states this as `injustice' done on Minorities.
Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.
The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) .
Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bengal Bandh' in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.
CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.
Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.
Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter.
Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services.
The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes,it's home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.
Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice'.
Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '.
CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden '
Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.
Many years later...
The Ant has since migrated to the US set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley,
100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India,
..AND
As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the grasshoppers,
.
.
India is still a developing country !!!

Hats off to Ratan Tata

Ratan Tata’s humane gestures (in the aftermath of 26/11)


Kasab is hanged, everyone's happy. Some people are praising Pranabda for this, while some the UPA governance.
Now that everyone's happy lets go back to November 2008,Hotel Taj when

& where this happened, and meet a real hero, Sir.Ratan Tata.

While many of you'll would've read it at other places, i thought, its important to share this again to Salute him once again.

Following is what Mr.Tata did to those who worked in the Taj hotel,vendors who ran various stalls around the hotel.

1. All category of employees including those who had completed even 1 day as casuals were treated on duty during the time the hotel was closed.
2. Relief and assistance to all those who were injured and killed
3. The relief and assistance was extended to all those who died at the railway station, surroundings including the “Pav-Bhaji” vendor and the pan shop owners.
4. During the time the hotel was closed, the salaries were sent by money order.
5. A psychiatric cell was established in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences to counsel those who needed such help.
6. The thoughts and anxieties going on people’s mind was constantly tracked and where needed psychological help provided.
7. Employee outreach centers were opened where all help, food, water, sanitation, first aid and counseling was provided. 1600 employees were covered by this facility.
8. Every employee was assigned to one mentor and it was that person’s responsibility to act as a “single window” clearance for any help that the person required.
9. Ratan Tata personally visited the families of all the 80 employees who in some manner – either through injury or getting killed – were affected.
10. The dependents of the employees were flown from outside Mumbai to Mumbai and taken care off in terms of ensuring mental assurance and peace. They were all accommodated in Hotel President for 3 weeks.
11. Ratan Tata himself asked the families and dependents – as to what they wanted him to do.
12. In a record time of 20 days, a new trust was created by the Tatas for the purpose of relief of employees.
13. What is unique is that even the other people, the railway employees, the police staff, the pedestrians who had nothing to do with Tatas were covered by compensation. Each one of them was provided subsistence allowance of Rs. 10K per month for all these people for 6 months.
14. A 4 year old granddaughter of a vendor got 4 bullets in her and only one was removed in the Government hospital. She was taken to Bombay hospital and several lacs were spent by the Tatas on her to fully recover her.
15. New hand carts were provided to several vendors who lost their carts.
16. Tata will take responsibility of life education of 46 children of the victims of the terror.
17. This was the most trying period in the life of the organization. Senior managers including Ratan Tata were visiting funeral to funeral over the 3 days that were most horrible.
18. The settlement for every deceased member ranged from Rs. 36 to 85 lacs [One lakh rupees tranlates to approx 2200 US $ ] in addition to the following benefits:
a. Full last salary for life for the family and dependents;
b. Complete responsibility of education of children and dependents – anywhere in the world.
c. Full Medical facility for the whole family and dependents for rest of their life.

Hindus are not aggressive people

The problem with India in general and Hindus in particular is that we, effectively, are not aggressive people; in fact we are not even assertive.

Our Bodhisattvas, Tirthankaras, Shankarachaaryas, numerous saints and bhaktimargi religious icons have led us to be evolved into a nation of people who flinch at the mere mention of being assertive and recoil with horror(both innate as well as presumed) at the prospect of being aggressive.


The end result of this pacifism in our modern history:


1. The most unfortunate and tragic event- the partition of India that is Bhaarata.


2. Invasion of Kashmir in 1948 resulting in loss of thousands of squares km of our strategic territory as well as tragic death of thousands of our people and soldiers.


3. Himalayan blunder of surrendering "imperial British advantages" in Tibet to China in 1950 resulting in absolute chinese control of Tibet by 1955 and India having a border with China which we never had! The next consequence: the humiliation of 1962.


4. The perpetual insurgency in our north-east since the 1950s...do we care to solve it!


5. 1965 and 1971 wars with Pakistan and not resolving the Kashmir problem in-spite of having their good chunk of territories and 93000 pakistani PoWs, not to mention the sad loss of our own brave soldiers.


6. Kashmir imbroglio since the 1980s.....do i need to elaborate any further!


7. Naxalism since the 1990s which has engulfed more than one third of our nation, in fact our rule does not extend there in that Indian territory!


8. Unabated and festering infiltration from Bangladesh skewing the democracy in favour of anti-national elements and depriving our own citizens of a right to live,earn and thrive peacefully.


9. Rise from near 5% to about 15% of our population of those very people who truncated this ancient country into three sparring and warring nations. Unfortunately those elements are even more radicalised and militant with the catalysm as well as aid of petro-dirhams and oil-riyals along-with information technology of the 21st century;all put together inspiring and guiding them to make India that is Bhaarata a medieval nation of their choice and command!


10. Tolerating or even encouraging ethno-linguistic regionalism and sub-nationalism in the name of decentralisation, 'dis'unity-in-diversity and short-term-gain myopic please all, but, save-one's-own-assets policies!


My dear Indians! Dear Hindus! Assert yourselves. If needed adopt an aggressive posture. To be frank I have no animosity for the minorities; but they must earn the goodwill and benevolence of the majority. India is a tolerant and kind country for many millenia not because of some recent constitution or lately imported misplaced european ideas but owing to its rich inheritance,resilient and long history and glorious heritage.

And its the responsibility of all of us to not abuse it and molest it. In fact i am seeing routine rape of it being committed in the name of equality,freedom,democracy and secularism!

We should shun such attitude and behaviour which is actually pretentious calm and delusional magnanimity. To be politely impertinent, its taken as timidity and cowardice!


Remember friends adrenaline and testosterone are not just for thrills and pleasure! They are for defense and procreation as well, we need to use them in this way too. We need to be proud,dynamic,yet cautious, strong,vibrant, yet steadfast,resolute and of course yes: ASSERTIVE as well as AGGRESSIVE.

Shame on Indian Media










Surfing through the channels, one news on BBC startled me. It read "Hisbul Mujahidin's most wanted terrorist 'Sohel Faisal' killed in A nantnag , India .. Indian Major leading the operation lost his life in the process. Four others are injured. 


It was past 
midnight , I started visiting the stupid Indian channels, but Sanjay Dutt was still ruling. They were telling how Sanjay pleaded to the court saying 'I'm the sole bread earner for my family', 'I have a daughter who is studying in US' and so on. Then they showed how Sanjay was not wearing his lucky blue shirt while he was hearing the verdict and also how he went to every temple and prayed for the last few months. A suspect in Mumbai bomb blasts, convicted under armory act...was being transformed into a hero.

Sure Sanjay Dutt has a daughter; Sure he did not do any terrorist activity. Possessing an AK47 is considered too elementary in terrorist community and also one who possesses an AK47 has a right to possess a pistol so that again is not such a big crime; Sure Sanjay Dutt went to all the temples;
Sure he did a lot of Gandhigiri but then.......... .. 


Major Manish H Pitambare got the information from his sources about the terrorists' whereabouts. Wasting no time he attacked the camp, killed Hisbul Mujahidin's supremo and in the process lost his life to the bullets fired from an AK47. He is survived by a wife and daughter (just like Sanjay Dutt) who's only 18 months old. 


Major Manish never said 'I have a daughter' before he took the decision to attack the terrorists in the darkest of nights. He never thought about having a family and he being the bread earner. 


No news channel covered this since they were too busy hyping a former drug addict, a suspect who's linked to bomb blasts which killed hundreds. Their aim was to show how he defied the TADA charges and they were so successful that his conviction in possession of armory had no meaning. They also concluded that his parents in heaven must be happy and proud of him. 


Parents of Major Manish are still living and they have to live rest of their lives without their beloved son. His daughter won't ever see her daddy again.

Teachers' day


    • I am absolutely clear in my concept of a Guru as well as that used to be in
      Hinduism. But the Shloka: “Gurur bramha; Gurur vishnuh;Gururdevo
      Maheshwarah: Gurussakshat Param bramha; tasmai sree gurave namah” is now been grossly misused by most of the ‘Gurus’of present day, who are not even fit to be called Guru in the spirit of Hinduism.

      As a matter of fact they are acting as divisive forces to protect their respective sects, and the wealth amassed through disciples or otherwise. They are greedy and possessed by most of the vices associated with common people.

      Most of them are not or even learned either. In their knowledge and spiritualism also they are limited. These types have been misusing the aforesaid shloka to glorify themselves. Even their common general knowledge is below average.

      A real guru is one who not only has spiritual knowledge but is a divine, self-realized person who lives by the principles of spirituality and who with his selfless life, is actively engaged in spreading the true knowledge-the knowledge of God or self realization, but where are such Gurus today?

      Such gurus were sage Vasishtha, Valmiki, Agasthya, Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Swamy Vivekananda, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Gautama Buddha, Sri Shankaracharya...who never raised their personal sects, celebrated their birthdays, and visited USA during summers to collect dollars as Guru Dakshina. Today most of the Gurus have usurped upon land in the heart of commercial cities for building Ashrams where they live a luxurious life and some of them a licentious life.

      The present day Gurus are a blot and curse on Hindu society and do not let it politically unite. To be in line with ruling political party, most of them pose ‘secular’ to get more clientage.

      Hinduism is still alive today because of the work done by ancient great gurus in the past and NOT by present parasites who have simply donned Gurudom upon them.

      Even our scriptures have depicted that one Guru may not have all the specialized knowledge under the Sun. Thus an inquisitive disciple may have several Gurus to guide him on different subjects. Sage Dattatrya had two dozen Gurus to pick up one trait from each. This was true in the past and is more relevant today.

"Defenders of the faith, refresh your memory"

This article is addressed to all defenders of the faith who are constantly haranguing BJP to stop disrupting Parliament and save Indian democracy. Public memory is short, media's shorter. A section of the media also suffers from selective amnesia.


The Vajpayee-Ied government was the first non-Congress government which governed India for over six years. It won an election in 1999, to return to power. It did suffer the fate of all earlier non-Congress governments in 1998, but acquired stability in its next term.


Its success led many to believe that Congress was not going to return to power any time soon. The resulting frustration in the Congress led to a complete change in its parliamentary behaviour. One has merely to look at the record of the thirteenth Lok Sabha to realise how often the Congress resorted to disruption and how flimsy were the grounds of those disruptions. Let me chronicle a few just to set the record straight and refresh the memory of the defenders of the faith.


If frequent adjournment of the Lok Sabha due to interruptions and disorderly scenes resulted in the loss of time of 10.66% during the Twelfth Lok Sabha, it increased to 19% during the Thirteenth Lok Sabha.


In February 2000, a circular issued by the Gujarat government, allowing its employees to take part in the activities of the RSS paralysed the business of Lok Sabha for at least 10 days. In December 2000, the House was paralysed once again for eight days when CBI filed a chargesheet against three Union ministers in the Babri Masjid case.


A major part of the budget session of 2001 was lost because of the Tehelka sting operation. The same thing happened when the Comptroller and Auditor-General report on the purchase of coffins for the armed forces was presented to Parliament. Parliament was disrupted and George Fernandes was boycotted by the Congress in Parliament. He was described as a Kafan Chor.


When the US forces invaded Iraq in early 2003, despite the fact that the prime minister himself made a statement expressing strong opposition to any military action in Iraq, the Congress insisted on Parliament passing a resolution condemning the US action. They disrupted the proceedings of Parliament again for many days until finally the great democrat Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee instructed us to work out a compromise which we did.


Only then was Parliament allowed to function. Compare Sonia Gandhi's belligerence today to the statesmanship of Vajpayee then. The examples of unprecedented corruption in recent years have been brought in the public domain by none other than a constitutional body like CAG. This has made the prime minister depart from established practice and make a statement in Parliament on August 27, 2012, criticising CAG. An extraordinary statement indeed by a person who has spent all his life as an economic administrator and should know more than anyone else about the role and responsibility of CAG.


The defenders of the faith are quiet on this point. They never tire of reminding us that according to our parliamentary procedure reports of CAG are automatically referred to the PAC and are examined by the PAC. This is absolutely correct. So, the report of the CAG on the 2G scam came to the PAC. Indeed, this was exactly the argument given by the government to reject our demand for a JPC.

The prime minister repeatedly expressed his faith in the PAC and its chairman. He even offered to appear before the PAC personally, knowing fully well that the PAC cannot call ministers; an offer which he has not found fit to repeat for JPC.

In fact, JPC is stalemated on the issue of summoning the prime minister and the finance minister as witnesses which BJP members are demanding and the ruling party members are opposing stoutly. But let us return to the theme of the PAC. PAC spent eight months deliberating on the 2G scam.

It examined 22 witnesses during this period but when the time came to examine the Cabinet Secretary, the Principal Secretary to the PM and the then Solicitor-General, Attorney General Vahanvati, the ruling party members disrupted the proceedings and did not allow the examination of these witnesses. The defenders of the faith kept quiet. Subsequently, the secretariat of the PAC prepared the report as is the practice in all Parliamentary Committees.

When the report was presented to the committee, the ruling party members indulged in rowdy behaviour to disrupt the meeting of the PAC. In my long parliamentary career, I have never seen such behaviour in any committee. When the chairman of the PAC adjourned the meeting because of this disruption, a ruling party member even occupied his chair and conducted mock proceedings to reject the report. They even conducted a press conference and abused the chairman.

All this was done under the direction of the senior-most ministers of the government. The defenders of the faith kept quiet. Parliament of India let it pass. The draft report of the JPC was effectively buried. An attempt is being made to repeat the same thing even in the JPC. The message is loud and clear, "we shall indulge in corruption with impunity".

The fact of the matter is that anyone who dares to enquire into the misdeeds of this government, whether it be CAG, PAC, JPC, or any other constitutional body, will be rubbished by the UPA government on the strength of its numbers. Truth will be suppressed, their sins will be swept under the carpet and the stale excuse on every occasion will be that they were only following NDA policies or that BJP is also equally guilty.

The tragedy is that with the help of a section of the media, they sometimes succeed in their propaganda. When Congress disrupts Parliament, it is performing a sacred national duty. When we do so, we are committing a grave crime. When Sonia Gandhi beckons her members to attack LK Advani, it is an act of courage and leadership. When the prime minister criticises CAG, he is being bold. My appeal to the defenders of the faith is to refresh your memory, go back a little into the past, do a little research and then defend the faith.

Mr. Secular Indian teaching secularism to his Gullible disciples who are pursuing a political career as a secular politician.

Mr. Secular Indian: I welcome you disciples to your first day in class. I know you people are obsessed with the idea of secularism, but I will help you build on this idea today which will benefit you tremendously in your political careers; so, let us start by taking some questions.

A Gullible disciple: I am confused about the idea of secularism. I feel I am a secular person, but when I see some of our English channels and listen to our politicians, I feel I am not - How do I get over this dilemma?

Mr. Secular Indian: What makes you feel as though you are not secular?

A Gullible disciple: I find myself agreeing to some of the views of BJP, especially on terror, international policies and common civil code etc. But the very next moment, when the panelists on these shows call it a farce and communal, I feel I am communal too.

Mr. Secular Indian: First things first. You cannot be called secular, If you agree with the BJP. You have to be a staunch opponent of BJP policies irrespective of whether you feel they are right or wrong. Be careful, you will be tagged as a communal instantaneously if you agree with them. It would not matter what you think about the upliftment of minorities.

A gullible disciple: Some politicians are even called communal if they go to a temple or wear saffron clothes, what do you think of that?

Mr. secular Indian: Well, you cannot wear any identity that could relate you to a majority community. You can go to the temple every now and then but make sure nobody is watching you. This might come to haunt you later in your political career. At the same time make sure you make frequent visits to churches and mosques and also meet some religious leaders, but this time makes sure you do it in front of the full glare of the media.

Meanwhile a Muslim gullible disciple jumps in and asks:

A gullible Muslim disciple: I go to mosques every Friday. Would I have to be careful too ? Also would I have to meet some swami jis in front of the media?

Mr. secular Indian: No, this does not apply to you as you belong to a minority community. In fact, if someone questions you about any aspect of your faith, just call for protection of your rights and your secular friends will take care of the rest. Talking about you meeting swamis, this could severely dent your chances of being a secular politician and your credentials might get questioned, even if you have to do that, do it behind the cameras.

A gullible Muslim disciple: I find myself agreeing with the BJP sometimes, especially about the introduction of a common civil code. I feel a different civil code for the Muslims is only alienating them and I do not agree with some of it’s clauses. How do I express this view?

Mr. Secular Indian: Again, the golden rule is, you cannot agree with the BJP at any cost. Even if the BJP is trying to do some good for the minorities, you will need to portray the evil in it. These are the times when your secular credentials will be tested. Remember, you being a Muslim and finding any of BJP’s comment acceptable, can spell doom to your political career. Common civil code might be necessary for the upliftment of the Muslims, but it is not acceptable to the Muslim masses. You can only take popular decisions in politics irrespective of the consequences.

A gullible disciple: I believe we would need to work hard for the upliftment of the minority masses to be called a secular.

Mr. secular Indian: Not necessarily, as long as you are anti-BJP and are making speeches condemning Hindutva, you need not do anything, just tell the minorities that you will protect them from the Hindutva forces and hope they might vote for you. At the same time, it can be dangerous if you try to bring a lot of development in the minority dominated areas as this would mean land occupations for roads, building, and schools instead of madrasas etc.. It might be popular among few, but the masses would not like it. Always stay away from such controversies in the minority dominated areas. Moreover, educating them might harm you in the long run, as you might not be able to use them as vote banks.

A gullible disciple: What are the advantages of being a secular politician?

Mr. secular Indian: Numerous! Firstly, it negates several ills. You can be a gangster, a rapist or a murderer and you can still be called a good politician with an honest ideology if you are secular. You will be acceptable to all the secular parties and will never be treated as an untouchable in politics. Moreover, if you have any criminal cases or CBI cases pending against you, just lend support to a secular party at the centre and be rest assured that all the CBI cases against you will be withdrawn. Another advantage is you can win elections without doing any public service. Look at all the states which are dominated by these secular parties. They do not have to do any public work or develop anything. These states continue to lag behind in all human development indices. They know that as long as they are secular, their chances of remaining in power are high.

A gullible disciple: How do I tackle riots which are so rampant in our society?

Mr. secular Indian: Wait until the riots have subsided, you need not mobilise any forces to tackle these riots. But make sure you put the entire blame on the hindutva forces for the riots. Also portray the BJP as an accomplice and be very vocal about it in the media. This will exonerate you from being complacent during the riots. Look at the Mumbai riots and Babri demolition for example. A secular government was at the centre on both these occasions. They even agreed to these events tacitly, if not directly involved and let nature take its own course. But they make sure even to this day that they blame the BJP for anything and everything that happened. I am sure they could have done something about it, but they opted not to. Instead, they used it to their advantage and portrayed the BJP as the only evil. This is a great example of how you can maintain your secular credentials by just blaming the BJP, even though you were involved yourself.

A gullible disciple: Can you tackle Jihadi terrorism and maintain your secular credentials?Mr. secular Indian: You have to be very careful when talking about tackling Jihadi terrorism. This is a condition you should be able to mend to your advantage. You should oppose every law that asks for a strong action against Jihadis. This will win you a lot of secular votes. In fact, if anybody tries to condemn Jihadis, reply to them by talking about Hindutva terrorism and always portray Hindutva terrorism to be a greater threat than the Jihadis. Also, try to magnify every violent incident associated with the Hindutva forces and make them look bigger and more threatening than the Jihadis. You will be surprised to know how many hearts you will win.

A gullible disciple: Muslims are equally affected by Jihadi terrorism. What if they do not agree to our idea of being soft on terror?

Mr. secular Indian: You have to create a fear psychosis among the Muslims and tell them that the fight against Jihadis is actually a fight against Islam. Tell them all the stories about how young Muslims are being tortured in the name of this fight against the Jihadis and that this fight would only create more terrorists.

A gullible disciple: What if the majority community gets angry with us for being soft on terrorism?

Mr. secular Indian: You have to make sure that the majority community is not majority anymore by dividing them into multiple factions in the name of caste or regions or languages and so on. Then select some large but disenchanted groups among them and promise them greater opportunity in every field. Now you will be left with a select few smaller groups which will question you. This is where you have to work like a salesman and try to sell your idea of secularism. If they still question you, threaten them with thoughts that they might be tagged communal if they support the same ideas as those being supported by the BJP. This works wonderfully and helps people soften their stance on terrorism.

A gullible disciple: How can we deal with the symbols of worship and religion and still be secular?

Mr secular Indian: You do not have to worry about the symbols of a majority religion like Ram Sethu etc., but make sure you divide the majority community so much that they start believing that the artificial lines created by you are more important than their religious identity. If they still persist on retaining their identity, then tell them that they could be identified with the communal forces. This helps even hardliners change their stance. Then you can even talk about destroying those symbols to appease the secular forces. At the same time make sure you never do anything to dilute the sentiments of a minority community. Remember, this sentiment is your bread and butter. Your entire survival depends on the minorities retaining their religious identity.

A gullible disciple: How can we tackle the media?

Mr. secular Indian: The media will give you a red carpet welcome. Remember, Indian media is the mouth piece of secular forces. They have been either created by the secular forces or been made to buy our idea of secularism. They cannot exist in this country if they differ from our viewpoint. The fear psychosis we have created helps us to make the media dance to our tunes. When in any TV debates, you can score a lot of points by making anti BJP rhetoric’s. If you find yourself in any trouble, just raise the issue of Gujarat riots and portray Narendra Modi as a devil. You are sure to come out of any troubled situation.

A gullible disciple: If you are tagged as a communal, is there anything we can do to get back to the secular brigade?

Mr. secular Indian: This is very simple. It is like conversion from one religion to the other. The easier we make it, the more it boosts our strength. Even if you are in the communal alliance for sometime for your own political advantage, you can dump these communal forces whenever you feel they are redundant and join the secular brigade. Remember Naveen Patnaik. He was tagged communal and his party was called a principal architect of the Kandhmal violence by the Indian media and the secular forces alike. Though as soon as he dumped the BJP on the question of ‘winnability’, he became the poster boy for secularism and everything that happened in Kandhmal was portrayed as a BJP conspiracy. We made everyone believe that Naveen Patnaik was just having a difficult time dealing with them. Also remember Kalyan Singh, the principle architect of Babri demolition is now trying to jump into the secular bandwagon and the secular forces are trying every bit to find him a place in their bandwagon. You can perpetrate the most heinous communal crime, but you can be secular any time you renegade the BJP. Remember, BJP hatred is the core quality required to become secular and other factors do not matter as much.

I will stop here and hope all of you had a very good understanding of secularism. Now work hard on these principles and you will climb to great heights in your political career. We will discuss some other issues in the next class.

CAUTION: Throw Congress out Lock, Stock & Barrel HINDU VOTE IS SACRED! USE IT WISELY!

BRTISH-COLONISERS / CATTLE-SLAUGHTER / NON-VEGETARIANISM

BRTISH-COLONISERS / CATTLE-SLAUGHTER /...
Ramakant Tiwari10:30am Jun 18


Non-vegetarianism was imposed upon the country by the British colonisers. The nation had been a bastion of vegetarianism till then. Permanent Settlement Act 1793 was enacted by Britishers to destroy agrarian economy of the country, divert livestock to slaughter houses raised by the only, switch-over to cash-crops, massive application of synthetic fertlizers and pesticides.

Cattle-slaughter led to imposition of non-vegetarianism, introduction of leather industry and destruction of entire Hindu ethos of Ahimsa.

Even under Mughal rule, Hindus were mostly vegetarians. Akbar shunned non-vegetarian food for six months in a year. Even foreign travellers like John Fires testified in his book BRITISH HISTORY UNDER MUGHAL RULE, "Hindus eat fruits, vegetables, roots and rice. But they do not eat meat, fish and eggs." Marco Polo's TESTIMONY confirmed, entire southern India and Bengal were cow-worshippers and strict vegetarians.
Much before, even Chinese travellers / Buddhist monks, Fa Hien in V century and Hsuang Tsang in VII century recorded complete absence of non-vegetarianism as well as alcoholism too.
Britishers made beef / meat eating and alcoholism a social norm, symbol of so-called modernism. They sponsored services of some so-called learned elites who could promote these vices through their writings. They succeeded to a great extent by buying out learned scholars like Pandurang Vaman Kane (awarded Bharat-Ratna later) propounding that beef-eating was the norm during Vedic era, Raja Rajendralal Mitra through his writing BEEF IN ANCIENT INDIA in 1872. Mitra was awarded Doctorate in Philosophy for his efforts which he published in 1877 titled INDO-ARYAN.
BEEF EATING CLUBS were sprouted all over Bengal with the so-called English educated Bengali intellectuals alias BHADRA LOK in English clothes and cigars, became dubious champions of modernity for the entire nation.
Supreme Court of India ruled in 1958 banning cow-, calf-slaughter, yet the dastardly practice continued under the secular rule of the damned CONGRESS PARTY OF NEHRU / GANDHI.

Jinnah and Nehru-s were all completely anglicised, relished beef and pork. Nehru's youngest sister Krshna Hutheesingh wrote in WE NEHRUS, published in 1967, " OUR LUNCH WAS ALWAYS OF THE BRITISH STYLE AND THAT IS WHY WE ALWAYS USED TO HAVE LUNCH IN A HOTEL BECAUSE ONLY THE BRITISH LUNCH INCLUDED BEEF AND PORK. IF BEEF AND PORK WERE TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE HOME, OUR MOTHER AND MUSLIM SERVANTS WOULD HAVE FELT BAD."

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'
'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2 The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

"Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his son’s teacher"


  "Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his son’s teacher"

He will have to learn, I know, that all men are not just, all men are not true.
But teach him also that for every scoundrel there is a hero;
that for every selfish Politician, there is a dedicated leader…
Teach him for every enemy there is a friend,

Steer him away from envy,

if you can, teach him the secret of quiet laughter.

Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest to lick…
Teach him, if you can, the wonder of books…
But also give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky,
bees in the sun, and the flowers on a green hillside.

In the school teach him it is far honourable to fail than to cheat…
Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if everyone tells him they are wrong…
Teach him to be gentle with gentle people, and tough with the tough.

Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone is getting on the band wagon…
Teach him to listen to all men…
but teach him also to filter all he hears on a screen of truth,
and take only the good that comes through.

Teach him if you can, how to laugh when he is sad…
Teach him there is no shame in tears,

Teach him to scoff at cynics and to beware of too much sweetness…
Teach him to sell his brawn and brain to the highest bidders

but never to put a price-tag on his heart and soul.

Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob and to stand and fight if he thinks he’s right.
Treat him gently, but do not cuddle him, because only the test of fire makes fine steel.

Let him have the courage to be impatient…
let him have the patience to be brave.
Teach him always to have sublime faith in himself,
because then he will have sublime faith in mankind.

This is a big order,
but see what you can do…
He is such a fine little fellow,
my son!

See the faith, this statesman reposed in teaching. This letter was written some 165 yrs back. It will be relevant at all the times & in all the times to come.

Indian woman

Women do not have a voice even in discourses that decide their destiny, All they have is their body. And that too is claimed by the husbands as marital property,
by society as an emblem of our cultural values,
by tradition as the source of continuation, and
by the moralists as the site of morality.
