A governor sacked in India and believe me that is a big news

It indeed is a big news because how often do you see governors being sacked because they had corruption allegations against them or how many times you see govt taking action on that front. But this time amazingly it did and I kinda like it!!

See I do not hate politicians or bureaucrats or administrators or anyone, but for some good reasons I am loving the fact that Ms. Kamala Beniwal has been sacked (from post of Mizoram Governor) for gross misuse of Gujarat Governor’s office during her tenure from 2009 to 2014.

Why is that so? For various reasons but primarily, she is sacked for all the good reasons. Police found her involvement in various cases ranging from corruption to misuse of power. And these corruption charges are not minor ones they involve, for example, she made some shocking exaggerations to claim prime agricultural land. Well you can all it use of power more than misuse but sadly it is crime against law. Well we all have to agree laws and lawmakers are kinda assholes.

Moving on, major charges against Ms. Kamala Beniwal are:

The main charge against Ms Beniwal involves a land scam in Rajasthan, sources say. She is accused of claiming cheap land after falsely stating in an affidavit in 2012 that she had tilled the land for 14 to 16 hours a day for 50 years, though in that time she had been Rajasthan minister and governor.

The other allegation is that the 87-year-old spent just one day in Mizoram, where she was posted a month ago, and mostly stayed in Rajasthan, her home state.

The third charge is that Ms Beniwal frequently used the state aircraft in Gujarat, where she was governor till July. She reportedly took the nine-seat Beechcraft 53 times to fly to Jaipur.

Again they do sound like good use of power vested in you but are actually offence against law. Probably finally some steps are being taken to restore faith of people in institution of government and judicial system and majorly LAW but the road is still rocky and not easy and most importantly very long. Lets see how far they reach!!

MODIfied Nepal: India-Nepal promising ties for good of both Nation

Modi visited Nepal, addressed Nepal’s parliament went to Pashupati temple. All these things tell a few characteristics of a Man he is. He is focusing on building strong ties and win trust of our neighbors. He assured Nepal of India not interfering in their internal affairs and also wanted to have great ties and support on Indo-Nepal Border. 

Nepal is a place with great natural resources, the solution to their problems lies with them. All Modi is doing is to help them use those for their betterment. Nepal has the highest peak on Earth, the mighty Himalayas, fast flowing rivers, Natural vegetation, is historically and culturally rich, has religious importance as well, and all of the above can be endorsed to make it a great tourist destination. 

Also we need to understand his stand on development of border as bridge and lending a helping hand in developing the export of herbal medicines. He has promised another billion dollars for the development of Nepal.

One noticable incident is his pooja at Pashupatinath Temple. He is a man of strong religious and spiritual belief. And he is strong with his stand when it comes to his beliefs. He did not try to monetize this event in any sort of people pleasing event, but people in Nepal too were “Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi”. That is Aura of a true leader. 

India Is emerged as a leader in BRICS, Bhutan and now is rising in Nepal. It brings a lot of diplomatic leverage to the nation. And we all have to agree in order to rise we have to take our allies along with us. The hope is together SAARC nations should wage a war against common enemy poverty, terrorism and help each other in bringing peace.

Live Long and Prosper… \\//

MyGov is the platform you were asking to help India grow, now Join it

Crowdsourcing ideas that would improve governance is a great idea, ain’t it? So in a country where everyone wants to participate in discussions on governance and everyone has an idea to improve social, political and economical growth of the country, a platform to facilitate that will be something people will love more than anything. And guess what Indian Government has launched something on the very similar lines. PM Narendra Modi on Saturday launched Mygov, an interactive website that seeks to foster participatory governance.

It is a great initiative. Of course it would have been better to have something a lot earlier but it is better late than never. There are so many people who want to contribute towards nation-building, and devote their time and energy. The only thing they required was an opportunity to shine and showcase their contribution. Now outlook of this website is good and it has two threads Discuss and Do. 

mygov

 

Now you can chip in your ideas for a better nation, on how things can be improved, how problems faced by nation can be resolved. The ideas presented will be taken further by discussion forums and worked upon based on their feasibility. You can participate in the work to be done or being done. Citizens can volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would then be reviewed by other members and experts. Approved task would earn credit points for completing the task. 

So all the folks who have been saying all they need is an opportunity, here is the platform. Now it is up to people to make this project a success or failure, I would want to see this as a success from Government of India to introduce more transparency. I expect people to differ from my views though I would request everyone to signup, it doesn’t take more than a minute and do whatever you can, discuss, raise concerns, chip in your ideas or help other ideas flourish. 

Do all you can because this time it is one platform you have been asking and now you have got. No further excuses please. Try to make it a success before condemning and start complaining about it. 

 

Why AAP failed to get people’s support?

Okay this is a late post in the series, so what?

#AAP lost the elections on most of the seats they contested for, they got 4 of their candidates in Loksabha which is a great news but people thought they are going to be in double digits atleast(being pessimist). Then what exactly went wrong.

It is not people like me who stopped supporting AAP were the reason why AAP failed, it was their supporters who argued in their favor even when they were wrong and in fact an absolute measure of wrong.

Well first thing first,  the party wasn’t ready to compete in the Lok Sabha elections. It didn’t have the necessary reputation among most of the Indian masses to make a big impact in the final analysis. This was, in my humble opinion, a case of jumping the gun. The Aam Aadmi Party was crying from the rooftops that they were prevented from passing the Lokpal Bill in the Delhi Assembly. But guess what, people do not want to hear Delhi’s story they want to know what you have to offer.

The specter of Aam Aadmi Party’s ill-fated 49-day government in Delhi was always going to hang over their head. It was the job of Arvind Kejriwal and his think tanks to show people that they were right in resigning prematurely. The party campaign instead focused solely on the opposition candidates, most of all on Modi, and we all know how this strategy works out (Think 2004). The tag of escapist which they got stuck to them and took them down in this Lok Sabha.

Another important aspect of being established as a party are the supporters. It is their job to convey the message, values for which party stands but instead they were busy fighting everyone they could find who was speaking against their messiah Arvind Kejriwal. Mr. Kejriwal is just a human being so he has all the rights to be wrong. It is supporter’s job to make his stand clear, but they were too busy maligning oppositions that they could not even make Mr. Kejriwal look good.

Also, during their government, Arvind Kejriwal took up protest against central government and conducted mohalla sabha for taking decisions for the country.

When people go vote for you, they hope you’re gona govern them with right understanding and judgement. Its your skill they trusted. Your coming back to them for every decision is childish and many people took it as sign of incompetence.

The expectations were never set properly. Goals were never clear and the execution (to spread too thin with very limited resources) was flawed as well. It was never going to yield anything satisfactory. They put all their energy in bringing down the opposition and did not focus on their rise. They often told what would happen if Modi/Gandhi come to power but they forgot to tell what would happen if they come to power.

The things are yet not over forever, they still can be the answer to several political setback questions. Remember there is no permanent crisis in politics and AAP is just in their beginning phase. They can reach to a place where they can bring the fix they say and can change India for good as they promise. But that road is rocky and I do not know if they will resign again in middle or not? Though I do not want them to.

Valley is enjoying the most peaceful time, Repealing 370 straightaway will only mean pushing them in a darker age

Kashmir became part of India in very weird situations. Post independence the Maharajah Hari Singh of this region wanted to stay alone, completely ignorant of the geopolitics around him. Pakistan forcefully tried to take control of his independent nation and without any option left he chose to join India in October 1947.

In order to make them a part of the country Constituent Assembly gave them Article 370 with which they get a li’l special status. The key sticking point which creates controversy is that the citizens from others parts of India cannot easily migrate to Kashmir nor acquire land in the state. Only “Permanent Residents” of the state can acquire property and other Indians cannot become permanent residents.

The state prides in being unique this way and there is a claim that such “uniqueness” breeds further separatism. We took the country in but never accepted them just like what we did with North-East. They are Kashmiri first and then Indians.  So when people say it creates separatism we are not correct as we never fully accepted them on the first thought.

Now as per Article 370, army was deployed to protect the borders of Kashmir from attacks but conditions worsened and Army was deployed on the streets. There were separatists who reacted to army in negative ways and I accept that army has also done several heinous crimes in Valley. The traction has been mutual and more wrong from our part. Army was there to protect them and not torture and harm them in any way.

I hear people often say they want to be part of Pakistan, I say “NO” not even in a zillion year. They hate pakistan way more than that, they are in this situation primarily because of Pak. We have to understand that if they do not support India in an India-Pak match then it is because they want to get back at India for crimes done against them. If India was playing against Nederlands they would support Nederland, it is as simple as that.

Now how people get bad picture, the answer is simple our brainless media. No surprises here, right?

Media only tells that there was a strife in valley and doesn’t tell that it happened because a 10 year old kid was shot dead and in protest the youth of Kashmir came on roads. Now only strife lead to a picture of people creating chaos for no reason however the story is different altogether. It was much like when people came out on streets to protest against the crime against Nirbhaya. But that is covered in a different fashion by media.

Kashmiris can’t forget what happened to their families, the lost lives of their loved ones and neither they can’t forgive it. That is why they do not want to be part of India as well and want to be an autonomous state. It is not separatist, it is rather a right thought.

What India can do or rather must do?

India promised to work for progress of the state, better road, railways, healthcare facilities. But did they get it, well partially yes. They have roads but not they way it should be healthcare there is not in its best shape and neither is communication which was promised in order to make it a part of the nation. First we need to take this as a priority and make an effort to prove that they have not been abandoned.

Did you know  Kashmir produces a large amount of electricity and yet it is not available to the natives themselves. Even now there is a system of “vayr” in Kashmir, where one either gets electricity from 9 to 1 or 6 to 10. So you see the injustice right in the basic call of repealing it.

Repealing 370 straightaway will only mean pushing them in a darker age. Instead if we get them up to speed and help the valley grow let them use their full potential. Provide opportunity of growth to the youth there, involve them in policy making, create better infrastructure over there, we can expect to see it happening in future. But right now it will only do more bad than goods.

Valley is right now in its most peaceful time since late 80s. It will not be right to put this peace in danger for some political mileage.

I am hopeful things will change but not all of a sudden or overnight. Events will take the time they would, no hurry can lead to better result.

Muslim Contribution to 2014 General Election which can not be overlooked

What people are overlooking and must understand is that if #PMNaMo has got such a landslide victory then it is certain that muslims must have contributed in great numbers to the vote bank. It gives me immense pleasure that our muslim brothers have moved way past the nonsensical divisive politics and are looking forward to development.

In real terms this is the victory of India and I proudly can say that I MODIfied India. It is one of those things which you witnessed and is historic. BJP in the leadership of Mr. Narendra Modi coming to power is impressive and is commendable. But what should not be overlooked and should be truly acknowledged is the confidence our Muslim brothers have shown in the governance capabilities of Modi and have given him the mandate.

I wish the coming government works for development of the country and that too a development of all the sections of society. I congratulate BJP and Modi.

Hitting AK was wrong and still is, even though you do not like him

It makes me feel sad beyond words. 

Though I do not like AK, I believe if he gets good number of seats he will go and sit in the lap of Mother Gandhi and get Congress back in power. But the fact still remains the fact that he is a man who is challenging a big power or at least is portrayed as one who is challenging a big power.

What makes me feel sad?

India is a free country and here people have right to express, we do not slap people when they are found guilty for 100s od crores of scams so why slap AK for whatever he says or thinks. 

There are politicians, lobbyists who have serious corruption charges against them and they visit people forget slapping nobody even raises a slogan against them. Now they do not like someone and they know they can get away even if they slap him, people got on to it without wasting any time.

Nobody even media dares to speak a word against Robert Vadra, everyone has stopped talking about CWG, Coal Gate even Arvind Kejriwal has. But no one will dare to slap Vadra or Digvijay, we all know Rahul Gandhi is a fool but we are not going to throw ink or stones on him because that will screw the ones whoare involved.

Why it is happening?

It is happening just because AK can’t do anything about these people, he can’t get them killed, he can’t put them behind bars even if these people go they will be out after sometime. So it makes people think “let us hit AK by all mean” and other politicians can do any-goddamn-thing so “let us not touch them”.

Why is it wrong?

It is wrong because it shows our lack of respect to fellow people and our rigidness to accept fact that someone is going to contest against our leader. Let him contest!! I know he will lose and if he wins it is his good work which got him the victory.

I know you like to protest so convert people against his ideas and not him. Vote against him, but no one has right to hit him. It is wrong on so many levels, first lack of respect, it shows that how badly we stand against who are new in system, it tells how we are discriminating a new structure in politics.


Conclusion

He might be anarchist and he totally can’t bloody keep his promises, he can’t even stick to what he says but that does not call for physical assault on anyone. You do not like him, do not vote for him. That is the way to show your anger. Hitting/slapping/throwing stones is not the way. I condemn it all the way.  For heaven’s sake have some respect for democracy!!

Supreme Court of India introduces The Third Gender

Supreme Court of India in its landmark judgement created Third Gender for transgenders in India. It is a great decision as it gives the social status they deserve. Till date they had to select either male or female in any government associated form but now they can choose the newly introduced gender.

It is first of it’s kind decision where transgenders are given a formal recognition. The petitioner Laxmi Tripathi says “I am very happy, today we(Transgenders) have been given same rights as men and women”. Apex court has asked to give them same educational and employment reservation as OBCs.  SC asked states to provide them with 

It said that section 377 of IPC is being misused by police and other authorities against them and their social and economic condition is far from satisfactory. 

The intentions and idea behind this decision is to bring transgenders to equality and remove the social stigma. Transgender is no longer a medical condition or social stigma. But the question is how successful will this decision be to bring equality? Nonetheless it remains a landmark decision.

Congratulations to the petitioner, beneficiaries of the decision and to the Apex court for a good decision!!

Toffee Model! Seriously!! You got nothing better Rahul Gandhi

Recently Rahul gandhi called Gujrat a #toffeemodel, really Mr. gandhi or shall I say Master Gandhi looking at the maturity of your brain. No one in this country respect you  and you have earned. What is  your dire need to prove your stupidity every time you speak. To be honest so far this seems to be you Model for India.

toffee1

Go and try to find out that your government has given Gujrat quite a many award, even UN has and one day you call it Toffee Model. Well call whatever you want but Toffee!! Seriously master Gandhi, why not lollipop.

You open your mouth and lower the IQ of a whole nation. I am sure Modi aptly said “He is a child at heart because if he was mature he would have known that over 300 models of the Gujarat government has won toffees (trophies) from the United Nations and the Indian government”. 

toffee2

On one hand congress gave a robot of a current PM and on another they are projecting one whose age is greater than his IQ. You leave me astonished every single instance you speak with your legend thoughts like “Poverty is a state of mind” like “Jupiter’s escape velocity”. Why don’t you, along with your Momma, Mannu Ji and DOGGYvijay, try to escape earth on that velocity? That will be something good that came out Congress in last 10 years.

Someone teach not-so-mister Azam Khan – Martyrdom is beyond religion

Nobody can or should involve Army with Politics. People who died in Kargil War were not Hindu or Muslims they were Indian Army men.  #ArmyAbovePolitics 527 Indians Army-men lost their lives in  Kargil war and a dickhead Azam Khan wants to polarize votes by saying communal things.

The shameful thing is that the fucker don’t even want to apologize with it, Indian National Congress is not even asking Samajwadi Party to cancel Azam’s candidature because they will lose an ally. Samajwadis are defending him.

This shit is beyond toleration, this man is not even an Indian he is bloody terrorist. He is responsible for Muzaffarnagar riots and now look at his audacity that he goes on to say as rubbish as his communal comment on Army.

These stupid, little brained politicians have no respect for Martyrdom, for Army and most importantly for the country, They need to be taught a very basic lesson: “Martyrdom has no religious background”.
