Dear Mr. Kejriwal,

Being an Ambani agent is not a crime. Ambani, to me, has done more good than bad to the country. Over the years he risked and brought products and services that you and I use everyday. Ambanis would have employed more people than all AAP combined. They would have created more professionals in India and abroad than a bunch of anarchists. You were an IRS yourself. The core of an IRS is Revenue. It is self explanatory that profit seeking is no crime. You and I seek revenues for whatever you do. You call it Donations, he calls them profits and I call it as Salary. I am a more common man than you. I have less assets than you, my salary is far less than the donations that your NGO would have received. But that does not make me shout slogans against successful people. Why only Ambani and Adani ? Just because they did not fund you? Why not Jindals and Munjals and others?

It is okay to shout and scream for political motives but why not match volume with content? While I hear from you the scams and profits made by Ambanis, I have also heard of the hospitals, colleges, factories, mills, telecom offices, Gas Exploration fields etc. Do only Ambanis work there? No. There are Sharmas, Vermas, Manjrekars, Banerjees and maybe a few Kejriwals also who draw dividends, salaries, bonuses from the mentioned avenues. We live in a democracy and have our rights to oppose and criticize but let us also ensure that our stick ends where the nose starts. I am not employed by the Ambanis and Adanis but some part of me goes out to thank them for opportunities that they created for my fellow countrymen. Your endorsement might be the last thing that anyways act as a clearance certificate for honesty. Please stare at the ground reality and that states – Mr. Arvind Kejriwal – The law of the land exists to take care of corruption and injustice. Your certificates are neither appreciated nor required by anyone, NO, not even by the commonest man. I do not see any mechanism that transforms a person from dishonest to honest on joining / supporting AAP and vice versa. Even for Delhi, Kiran Bedi is as honest a person as yourself. So, being honest will not earn you more brownie points here Sir.

You came with an immensely pure intent and was more than pleased to attend the event at Ramlila. Supported Anna and the entire team but unfortunately the way you opened up on Shiela Dikshit, and other big time scams, it hurt. I request you to go back to your crusade against corruption which is far more important for a common man than you being the CM.

And if you do not, and continue labeling everyone as Ambani and Adani agent, we might see a #JeSuisAmbani very soon.

Not just a rape

Dear Ram Singh and Company,
You have not raped and murdered a girl. You have killed the hope which prompted girls to work and earn a living. You have murdered the chances of many other girls coming to Delhi to realise their dreams. You have killed the idea of someone becoming another Indira Gandhi at the very inception stage. You have raped the faith which my fellow countrymen will have before sending their sisters and daughters outside their homes. You have killed the idea of educating the girl child in an already orthodox nation. But you did not stop. You went further. It was every soul that you managed to tear apart. You did not throw two human beings outside the bus. You threw freedom and humanity out of life for many. You went on. You did not undress the bodies, you took the skin off the mankind. You went on.
You drove the bus and had tea and watched TV. While driving you crushed empathy, sipped blood and took away the vision of a safe India. You washed the bus and the stains. But what about the blots that today rest in our eyes and make our vision blur. 
Were you not reminded of your mother? I guess not. Because people like you have no mothers. You only have women in and out of your lives with a placement of flesh slightly different than your body. 
Tell me Mr. Singh, I ask as an ordinary citizen, a brother, a husband, a son and colleague, why should we not reciprocate the same?
And tell me Mrs. Gandhi, Mrs. Swaraj, Mrs. Dikshit and others, is being a portray of women rights enough? I guess not.

This might be a new chapter in Indian Governance but the country surely needs Abdul Kalam as the president of India. Yes, AGAIN. Not only has he secured the distinction of being a non – political person, but also has had the uniqueness of being a significant contributor to a cause called India’s development in the defense technology field. He has transformed India when it comes to the Aerial Defense System. It is his vision, that has led India to celebrate the successful launch of Agni-V. Little did we dream about India being a missile superpower before he started his career with the Government of India. 

When he was the president, he took decisions and did interfere in matters that mattered the most. He has always been an upright person, much noble and possesses an unparalleled integrity. Not guided by personal gains, he has taken a stand whenever necessary for the nation. He does not mind being opposed by the self-interest vested personalities and has often dwarfed them whenever compared. Abdul Kalam also owns a genuine belief in the power of the youth, he is one man who has perhaps motivated the youth in a way no other president ever had. His contributions through the college meetings, events and functions have drawn mass audiences who lend him a patient ear. The best part about making him the president is the vision of India that he carries, he is clear with his expectations and portrait of India of the future, He has already shared his vision of India 2020 and if he is given an opportunity to be the President once again, he will DELIVER.

Talking about the stand of the political structure, he shall not find many opponents too. Be it the UPA or NDA – Sonia Gandhi or Manmohan Singh, Narendra Modi or Nitish Kumar; Mulayam Singh or Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley or Sharad Pawar — none can oppose him over values that matter the most. India today needs to make history and make the right choice. In the times of rampant scams, controversies and    unprecedented corruption, Indian needs a clean personality. We do not need to hear to the issues surrounding president like the Bungalow row over Pratibha Patil and allegations that hamper faith instituted in the first citizen of our country.

Abdul Kalam has already displayed his capabilities of Leadership, Integrity, Righteous personal and professional conduct, perseverance and high moral and morale. As an India citizen, I completely support his candidature and nomination for the post and I really hope and appeal to the concerned to make this hope a reality.

JAI HIND.

When Anna and his team challenged the parliamentarians, there was a sudden uproar in the political galleries. Everyone started talking highly of Democracy and the occupants of the Parliament House as the wisely chosen representatives. Little did we know that serious events like the Rail Budget can have ingredients of Humour. The Rail Minister made announcements that were more or less in sync with what was required. Little did the AAM AADMI object to the nominal fare hike. 

It was the other MORE INTERESTED parties which had serious objections to it. Welcome to the political stage where the ones who are affected are shadowed by ones who pretend to be affected. The ones who are want to object are never heard, and the ones who have free passes are the first and only ones to object. Why did Mamata and her party workers not move a motion to stop Railway passes to the MPs, MLAs? Why don’t we stop the families of Railway staff from travelling free of cost, legally and illegally?

Railways already pays the deserved and agreed salary to them, doesn’t it?

Indian Railways is as massive as the Indian government itself. The Union Rail Minister was quite right when quoted that Rail ki Chuk Chuk se Aam Aadmi ki dhak dhak chalti hai. Indeed the common man is affected by railways. millions of commuters use the Rail services daily. It has taken us 65 years to figure out that the railway platforms, stations and trains are unhygienic? If an organisation like Sulabh International develop self-sustaining models of Toilets, can we not have Indian Railways with a support of a full ministry and a strong lobby of Administrative bureaucrats to think out a solution. It is quite amusing that Indian Railways still is in a state that it is. 

When Lalu Prasad Yadav opened avenues of revenue generation, the opposition and allies objected to it. But tell me is it not a criminal wastage to not utilize the massive Railway Infrastructure by roping in corporate participation, advertising on sites, etc?

I wonder how can these issues be ignored and not a part of the Rail Budget? Can we not have a policy which has a combined participation of Public – Private partnerships? 

Why can we not draw a leaf out of Delhi Metro’s book? Why do we have to calculate and project vague figures? The operating costs projects are amazing but sadly unprecedented. We do not drive country’s growth on assumptions that need record breaking efforts and specially in these turbulent times. 

And to add to the misery is the political drama eversince the railways minister concluded his speech. He has maintained solidarity, he has been scolded, reprimanded, called back, asked to resign, resigned, accepted, and then not resigned, still maintains the designation. The entire population is glued to the television sets more to have some masala khabar than a genuine news. The media is doing gymnastics on a tamarind leaf. Anyone comes up with a statement of his choice, the same person is giving three contradicting speeches.

I believe that Railways is a serious business of the government and the same shall be dealt with utmost care and sincerity. And I hope that the Railway Minister keeps to his words, Faulad sa seena hai, fauladi hai baahein – hum chattano mein bhi bana lenge rahein. Jai Hind

Heartfelt congratulations to women working in the ultra modern city of Gurgaon. It is amazing how our authorities bring out best solutions like these. This is certainly going to help. But, if we may ask the basis of this ruling.

Are women raped only after 8 PM?

  • Will the MEN sign an agreement that they will not rape before 8 PM?
  • Why have the Malls, Pubs and Nightclubs only been included and not other establishments?
  • What timings will we now have for the NIGHTCLUBS? (Perhaps 10 AM – 5 PM)
  • Is there a stronger vigil or security till 8 PM?
  • Why is this ruling not being made applicable PAN INDIA?

Unfortulately, the makers of this policy do not understand that it is not the working status / habits of women that lead to rape cases. The problem lies elsewhere. Women are raped in paddy fields, trains, mornings, afternoons, trains, buses, autos, cars, home – by strangers, acquaintances, family men, relatives, friends, domestic servants ….. Putting a ban will mean that the step is taken to secure about 0.002% of the women population.

 

Unless there is a proper mechanism to curb the culprits, this will go on and on. Police constables were involved in gangrape in Mumbai a couple of years back, several politicians have already rape cases against their names, NGOs too are participating in this heinious crime. Will such a ruling help? I have doubts. 

 

Further, why don’t we think the other way? Why do we not discourage the Rapists? Is it not unfair to ban the victim community from conducting a work which is Legal and their Fundamental right? The wrong doers are allowed to walk free and the victims are now being asked to refrain. A while back Delhi’s Chief Minister urged women to stay indoors. Why, why are the governments and its authorities on a backfoot? Why not give a charge against RAPES? 

 

Finally, if 8 PM is the deadline of safety – Why was our prime minister so adamant on inviting the likes of Mamata Banerjee, Sonia Gandhi, Ambika Soni etc? Dinners are a post 8 PM affair.

 

Request the concerned to kindly take a note and stop coming out with such defensive ploys. Ban the culprits and not the Victimised.

Narendra Modi v/s Rahul Gandhi

A man with a mission v/s A Man with a dream

A leader with conviction v/s A leader with experimentation

A manager with vision v/s The son of the CEO

Mr Narendra Modi has the distinction of being the longest serving Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat. He firstly assumed this responsibility in October 2001. Thereafter, he has had sweeping victories in two successive Assembly Elections held in December 2002 and December 2007. He has also won successive elections of the local bodies including the Panchayats, Municipalities and Municipal Corporations. The victory of 2007 is a reaffirmation of the people’s faith in his leadership, statesmanship and governance which he displayed in last six years as Chief Minister.

Passionate and progressive, a poet at heart and author of a few books, tech-savvy, Mr Narendra Modi is one of the most responsive political leaders in India. Born to a middle class family in the Mehsana district of Gujarat in 1950, a masters in political science, he entered social youth right at the beginning of his youth, in the early seventies.

He is widely regarded as a youthful and energetic leader with innovative thoughts and determination to implement them. He has successfully communicated his vision to 55 million people of Gujarat and has been able to instill a sense of confidence in what they have and a hope for a golden tomorrow. A wide cross section of the people of Gujarat, cutting across religions, income groups and political affiliations, continue to adore Mr Narendra Modi as an able and visionary leader. An astute politician, a skilled orator and a deft negotiator, Mr. Narendra Modi has earned the love and affection of the people from villages and cities alike which makes him a rare leader of the masses. When he became the Chief Minister of Gujarat for the first time in October 2001, he hardly had any experience of state administration. But his utmost commitment and dedication have rendered him an outstanding administrator and given him an unique achievement of being ranked as the Best Chief Minister of the country in a number of surveys by professional agencies. Even recently, after being elected for the new term, in February 2008, he has been voted as the Best Chief Minister by the people across the country.

When the Modi government was sworn-in in October 2001, the economy of Gujarat was reeling under several adverse trends, particularly natural calamities. The state had witnessed successive droughts, devastating cyclones even before it was hit by a disastrous earthquake in January 2001. The growth in various sectors was stagnant, major parts of the state were facing water scarcity, infrastructure was in shambles and investments had slowed down. Moreover, the mood of the people was despondent. The biggest challenge was to resurrect the spirits and the economy, revive the livelihoods and to reconstruct the infrastructure including those in the earthquake affected areas. Thousands of earthquake affected people were living in temporary shelters without any basic infrastructure. However Modi, a master strategist enriched by national and international exposure and experience, decided to take the bull by its horns and turned an adversity into an opportunity. He re-oriented and re-organized government’s administrative structure, embarked upon a massive exercise for rehabilitation of people, reconstruction of infrastructure, recreation of the business environment and rejuvenation of the traditional entrepreneurial spirit of Gujarat. This successfully put Gujarat back on the road to progress and prosperity. Gujarat is now popularly known as “Vibrant Gujarat”.

Even when the reconstruction and rehabilitation was going on, Modi did not lose sight of the bigger and larger picture. He emphasized on all-inclusive and uniform development of all communities and regions In the very first year of his tenure, he came out with an integrated strategy for overall development of the State. It is known as Panchamrut (five nectars) and includes Jal Shakti: Harnessing of Water Resources, Gyan Shakti: Quality and coverage in Education, Jan Shakti: Development of Human Resources, Urja Shakti: Power of energy sources and Raksha Shakti: Security and well being of people. Gujarat has registered a GDP growth of over 10% over past five years which is the highest growth rate among all the states in India.. The efforts of his government have resulted into metamorphosis of a revenue deficit state into a revenue surplus state.

He mooted a model of development through people’s participation. USP of his development model has been : a quantum leap (think big) and change right from the roots (no cosmetic changes). A large number of water harvesting structures like check dams, farm ponds and initiatives like Krishi Mahotsav (agricultural festival) and Kanya kelavani campaign (girl child education drive) are its examples. Agriculture production quadrupled from Rs.9000 crores to 34,000 crores. Gujarat leads in energy production with 1878 megawatts of power generation. Through the Jyotigram yojana, he has been able to supply uninterrupted three phase round the clock electricity to all the 18,000 villages of the state. The rural economy is now vibrant owing to this and the villages have turned into centers of production. The state has ushered in a water revolution with creation of a large number of water harvesting structures and popularization of micro-irrigation techniques. Gujarat is the only state where, under the project e gram vishwa gram, all the 18000 villages are being provided broadband connectivity.

Qualitative change has been brought in health services and health infrastructure alongwith schemes like Chiranjeevi and Balbhog which are novel initiatives to ensure a healthy mother and child. Focus on cent per cent enrollment of children through campaigns like Kanya kelavani and Shaala praveshotsav and resultant drooping drop out rates have been able to reverse the trend of high illiteracy rate from Gujarat. The focus is putting Gujarat at par with the developed regions in Human Development Index and work towards the achieving Millenium Development Goals declared by the UN. To ensure all round, all inclusive and uniform development, comprehensive and well conceived packages like Vanbandhu kalyan (tribal welfare), Sagarkhedu (development of coastal dwellers), Garib samruddhi (upliftment of urban poor) are under implementation.

Mr. Modi believes in the fact that good infrastructure is the driver of economic development. He therefore, paid utmost attention on physical and social infrastructure and involved private sector in their development. The rapid and qualitative development of ports, roads, railways, LNG terminals, gas distribution and water distribution networks and other infrastructure facilities are being discussed nationwide. Setting up of Statewide gas grid and water grid are exemplary achievements in infrastructure. He has also created excellent infrastructure at tourist and religious places. Urban sector has been enlivened by up gradation of civic amenities and emphasis on cleanliness and greening and reduction of vehicular pollution. The well conceived, meticulously planned and professionally organized Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Biennial Summits held in 2003, 2005 and 2007 have put Gujarat as a preferred investment destination among global investors. These summits have not only attracted investments worth billions of USD but also created huge employment opportunities in the state. Its logical fall out is skill development for various class of people on a massive scale.

One of the key factors catalyzing Gujarat’s emergence as the most preferred investment destination is its security. Gujarat has the lowest crime rate in the country in last six years. Terrorist nexus, mafias and gangs have all lost grounds here.

A leader who believes in team-work and a good work culture, Mr Modi has launched an ambitious training programme for the 500,000 government employees in Gujarat which is being watched in awe by every other state. Many of his initiatives like evening courts, interlinking of rivers, jyotigram, grievance redressal through SWAGAT online and others are being viewed as models for replication at the national level. The state is now rated as the best e-governed state in the country. With his focus on cent per cent computerization of the villages and emphasis on quick disposal of people’s grievances, the state is set to usher into village level e-governance. Narendra Modi government has bagged about eighty awards including the ones at the international level like the UN Sasakawa award for disaster reduction, CAPAM Gold award for able governance, World Bank’s Green award for environment friendly work during rebuilding after the earthquake, UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage Award and award from Global Interpolis, Singapore. Gujarat is today rated as the best state in bio technology initiatives too. Gujarat has been rated as the best state in investment climate and economic freedom. The awards , received for achievements on several fronts including agriculture, energy and water management, IT and BT and e-governance; themselves reveal the multi sectoral nature of development.

Mr Modi worked as the General Secretary of the BJP’s (Bhartiya Janata Party) Gujarat unit since 1988. In 1995 Mr Modi was asked by his party to play a role at the national level – he was appointed as Secretary of the BJP’s national unit at New Delhi. He was promoted as General Secretary (Organisation) in 1998, a post he held until October 2001, when he was chosen to be the chief minister of one of India’s most progressive states, Gujarat. During his stint at the national level, Mr Modi was asked to oversee the affairs of several state level BJP units, including the sensitive and crucial states like Jammu & Kashmir and the equally sensitive north-eastern states besides the state like Haryana, Himachal Pradesh etc. He is being credited for successfully revamping the party organization in several states. While working at the national level, Mr Modi emerged as an important spokesman for the party and played a key role on several important occasions.

Modi’s model of good governance is being applauded within the country and beyond. The way he has won the hearts of people of Gujarat and his popularity at the national level show that ‘Good governance is also good politics’

Today, when he finishes his 3-day fast. He said MY GOVERNMENT DOES NOT DO ANYTHING FOR MINORITY and NEITHER DOES IT DO TO VOW THE MAJORITY. India has witnessed 60 years of Vote Bank politics. What Modi projected was a vision for a progressive INDIA and a determined India.

On the contrary Rahul Gandhi has had his chances to impress the Indians too. He has been sharing meals with Dalits and morning walks at Bhatta Parsaul. What Rahul thinks, Modi brings it to reality. Rahul’s credibility has been guessed but not proven. While Rahul is busy recouping from the Anna effect, Modi is marching ahead with aggressive people contact. Narendra Modi wants India to think and dream big. Rahul wants to make a few Indians bigger.

With Sonia Gandhi declining the PM seat during the last Lok Sabha elections, congress did earn some brownie points but the points have been redeemed and the brownies have been digested. What next is the question ?

Is BJP realising the impact Modi has on Indians and India in 2014? Is the supreme court verdict the game changer? Are we going to witness the supremacy battle between a fundamentally progressive leader and an aspiring leader? Who is the Indian voter going to shake hands with? A proven politician or the son of a dynasty?

While India chooses its future governance, time for me to sign out and sip my evening coffee.

India – The world proudly addresses it as the largest democracy in the world. And the world is not wrong. In sheer numbers and the amount of voters on roll, it is indeed the largest democracy. But in a much relative sense, it is the world’s largest non-functional democracy in the world. We are governed by a paralysed government at the centre. What they practice, is exactly what they preach. The forefathers preached Dynasty Rule and the successive generations are practicing it. The Gandhi family is on an absolute rampage and the shame is that people are tolerating it to the core. When Anna rebelled at Jantar Mantar, things looked positive. But Kapil Sibbal, pretended the formation of Lokpal and ducked the alarming situation. But now the deadline is nearing and to add to the misery, Baba Ramdev too joined in with a list of impossible but required demands.
The government is unfazed. What happened on the night of 4th June at the Ramlila grounds was horrifying. A place where the life of Lord Rama is portrayed during the Navratras. The lord, who is referred to as Maryaada Purushottam. The man who is best amongst all in following the principles. A king who always kept the citizens first. A king who fought for the citizens, someone who was more interested in the common man’s meals than his own. And at the same Ramlila grounds, we saw a vulgar display of power. Rightly said, Power Corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts Absolutely.If the Union Ministers are neat and not the beneficiaries of the Black Money in question, what is stopping them from giving it a green signal. Why must they not join Baba Ramdev or Anna Hazare instead of horrifying the common man.
It makes no sense to implement 144 in any area where people can stage a demonstration peacefully. When Anna Hazare fasted, how many instances took place ? None. And now the government is against such demonstrations as well. The question is, Who will stop all this Non Sense carried on by the UPA and allies? Digvijay Singh calls Baba a Thug, what happened to him, when Arjun Singh played with the Bhopal Gas Case ?? Where was Digvijay Singh when rajiv Gandhi bought Bofors ? Is A Raja not a thug ? Is Suresh Kalmadi not a Thug ?? Have heard people complaining of loose motions in summers but Digvijay has an evergreen verbal diarrhea. Too expensive a choice by Congress to make him the spokesperson.
Baba Ramdev might have had his interests, but the issues he brought to the forum were not personal. They carries importance to every citizen of India. Anna Hazare boycotted the Lokpal meet not because he wanted to but because he could smell something wrong somewhere. At the age of 73 and having immense experience, he can certainly do that with a command.
A while back, I was viewing a video of a Poem being recited by our former PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji and was thrilled to observe the tone in which he addressed the nation. The Intent was clear. Sad, that the opposition is not strong either. India could have been a better state if we had sensible conductors during the times when the Driver goes beyond control.The government as well as the opposition are Boneless and no wonders they are (Mis) leading the country the way they are. The onus lies on us too. We do not go out to support because it is too hot. For us, a sunburn is a bigger calamity than the Nation Collapse. We do not voice our opinion on Corruption, but go full throttle when India is playing a cricket match. Perhaps all our patriotism is confined to the Games and in the course, we are missing out on the Bigger Game that people are playing elsewhere. Right from Onions to Airlines, from Doctors to Engineers, from Ministers to Barristers, everyone is driving the process their way. Bribes on traffic signals, bribes outside courts, inside temples, everywhere. And Manmohan Singh says that it cannot be done overnight. Yes, he is correct. You cannot stop a cop from being bribed by an offender ? But Why Not ? Is it too difficult to witness such acts ? Certainly Not. Mr. Manmohan Singh, please step out of that BMW and see what happens on the streets, offices, courts, police stations… It is not duty but is your responsibility for sure.
Ordering a Lathicharge is not what an economist would term as Viable. And if the sanction for such barbaric acts comes from a Professor, it makes us one and all shameful of professors and other such respectful professionals. Our father of nation believed in Non-Violence and look what the prime minister of that nation is upto. Disgusting and Sinful.
When Suresh Kalmadi was on a spree of diluting taxpayers’ money, the concerned were asleep and when Baba Ramdev campaigned, the entire ministry, Home Minister, Officials got up and got moving. Contrasts that do not please the eyes. All said and done, we do not know how long are we going to let this country run in this direction but one thing that I am sure of is that we cannot afford it for long enough. What is the Common Man and the Uncommon Man doing? Filmstars, Cricketers, Writers — They all come for various charities, fund raising etc but why are they not out to demonstrate their feelings about Corruption ? Is it only the character they play in movies, that is against Corruption? What about the real them? Heroes or just actors ?? Pity that celebrities are busy celebrating when the nation is mourning the death of the nation. And the government has devised the perfect remedy for the common man. Keep them so common that they do not have anything to think beyond their livelihood. Well done, UPA and congratulations to Sonia. Just a piece of advise for Rahul, pls. get married soon and get some children who will embark upon the legacy leftover by your ancestors.

Leadership is about igniting the flames buried underneath. It is not about ordering the masses to do something for some vested interested interest or another. All of us witnessed Anna Hazare driving the crowds towards a common and a selfless goal. The theme was simple and the benefit was transparent. People always felt that there participation will not effect the functioning of the state. What Anna did was impeccable. He made them believe the power of an individual and a group of individuals gathered on a platform.
Did he instruct people ? NO
Did he promote Violence ? NO
Did his mission help any political party ? NO
Did he ever try to please anyone ? NO
So, what was it that made him as effective as he was :
1. SIMPLICITY OF OPERATION : The way Anna carried his agitation was fairly simple for even a common man to understand and contribute in his own ways. He did not ask anyone to do something extraordinary. He requested them to stand by him in whatever way they wanted to.
2. CREATING SELF-BELIEF : This is perhaps the biggest influencing factor in the success of Anna Hazare. He made the common man feel strong, they could believe that it is them who have the steering of our democracy. They realised that it is the Common Man who calls the shots in our country and if an old man can be as gutsy, why should they not reciprocate the enthusiasm ?
3. CLARITY OF THOUGHT : Another masterstroke of Anna was the clarity of thought. He had influential personalities visit him, celebrities join him and so on. But unperturbed, he expressed just one dream — A Corruption Free India and showed Indians that it is POSSIBLE.
4. NEGOTIATIONS : Anna was an exceptional negotiator. He knew when to show the cards and with what intensity. He was clear about the price he wanted for his efforts. The price tag flashed off just three words CORRUPTION FREE INDIA. And his negotiations never fell short of anything beneath that.
5. TALENT ACQUISITION : Right Man for the Right Job is what we study day in and Day out at Management Schools. Anna picked his team to perfection. A team which was worthy, skilled, uncompromising and yet integral.
Hence we see how Anna showed an inspired leadership stint and keeping his promise with the people of India.

The entire world has witnessed the killing of oSama by oBama — or an Ass (S) by a Bee (B).

The question before we let this die are :

Osama has been fighting his Kidney malfunctioning so far. There was no Dialysis equipment found in the mansion. Where did he get the treatment from ? The nearest infrastructure was the Military hospital ……?? Strange but true.

If ISI knew it for so long, why was the information not shared with US with higher level of intensity ?

If Pakistan is an ally to US and US did not pay attention to its shared intelligence, why did Pakistan not take action against Bin Laden and hand him over to its friend, the USA?

If Pakistan did not know about the operation, why was there a power cut in the area at the time of the operation ?

If Osama had been in Pakistan and staying as close to the Military Academy, what were the locals doing ?

Everyone now claims they were suspicious of the house and strange behavior, why did they not raise their voices?

What are the expectations that US has from Pakistan now ?

Shall India be permitted to carry out such an act against Hafees Sayeed / Dawood Ibrahim ?

If not, then why not ? If the answer is integrity, why was it compromised with the US ?

What will India learns from this operation ? The answer to this question is perhaps the easiest. NOTHING. India, what will we do? We haven’t been able to bring Afzal Guru to the penalty, we have not been able to punish Kasab, what will we do to the ones in Pakistan… That requires GUTS and Indian leadership certainly lacks that.

Please feel free to answer any or all of the above questions. The country needs answers and the world needs answers too.

🙂

Letter to the Prime Minister

Dear Dr. Singh,
Congratulations on your speech at Guwahati before the elections yesterday. You are doing what you are good at, following the instructions. My question like any other AAM AADMI is, What has happened to your conscience ? You are an educated person and as far as the world knows, you are a person that commands extreme control over Integrity. Then, what is the motivation for you to lead such Arrogant, Corrupt, Insensible and Indifferent people? Why, WHY are you doing this to the country? Have you not had enough? How long would you and your cheating party continue to ruin our nation? India has become the Gandhi’s playground. Indira to Rajiv to Sonia to Rahul. They are not the GANDHIs who we are supposed to follow. They are not the generations of Mahatma Gandhi. If they have enjoyed the fruits of keeping the surname Gandhi, they should sacrifice as much too.
You have time and effort to praise MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, but no appreciation for Anna Hazare. You are fighting self-guilt and let me remind you that you have had an incredible track record as an Economist. Look at the MACRO affairs sir and not the MICRO ones only to carry on the PM’s seat. Grow up before god calls you 🙂 To answer Hazare, you have sent Kapil Sibal, if I recall the same guy who could not see any wrong in the 2G Scam.
I request you to kindly disembark yourself from this vehicle based on the four wheels of Corruption, Inhumanity, Non-Integrity and Arrogance. We need sensible people like you to make the change and not just follow the mess that has been created by your chairperson and the followers. Such shame and disgrace that a Gandhian is fasting unto death at the age of 72 and you are addressing Election Rallies ? Is there any element of shame that remains in you? Sardars were always known to be strong to fight against the odds and look at you. Why can you have a spine? May I remind you that boneless creatures are good enough just to be served in a platter at a restaurant. What has you office been doing with regards to :
Commonweath Games Scam? – Suresh Kalmadi and Shiela Dikshit.
2G Scam? – A Raja and your ally DMK
Adarsh Housing? – Your party Chief Ministers
IPL Scam — Shashi Thuroor
ISRO Scam
How long will the tax payers of my country be paying for your luxury ? And why should they? Is it not fair if people stop paying taxes as an opposition to the misuse of their previously paid dues? Why should we not follow Hassan Ali? Why can you not disclose the names of Swiss Bank account holders? Who Stops you other than your own bunch of shameless corrupt partners?
Please, for country’s sake, do something. Take some action. ACT NOW.
Manish Misra.
An Indian Citizen, slightly more concerned than you.
