The country is facing the worst ever crisis today.this crisis is fuelled by the likes of Raj Thakre and his uncle, the legend hatemonger, Bal Thakre. they are a pain to our culture and country.But rest of the society has been quite over this tragedy. Especially the media. they are maintaining a distance both from the perpetrators and the aggrieved society.this outrageous scandal is led by a cartel of media-persons and the politicians who think only selective interpretation of the events for their own gain is only necessary.
everyone seems to be downplaying the events that has taken a massive toll on the independence of the citizens.the Marathis who hate outsiders in Mumbai may only be 2%, but their society has become communal by and large to great extent. Neither do they seem to be apologetic.the net is also full of comments from the Marathis, first they do regret the events that has taken place but they also blame the north indian for their adventurism in the marathi cpital and else where.So, in their light it is something they recognise with and so they are at the forefront in breaking the great nation called India. Not only that they have emerged as the mentally weakest race in India.they shun competition and become violent at races who are more competitive and productive in their own backyard.
as world citizens, we can now go every where and work everywhere. But not in Mumbai because that belongs to a race that thinks it to be its private property.they themselves do not know to manage it, is quiet another story.can Mumbai sustain without the its lexicons of people from different states that are glittering from there. alas not,… its leaders are few goondas and who claim themselves to be sons of the soil.
as election is in sight, these things might gain momentum and having media by its side these monsters will feed on the hapless citizens.
the glasgow bombing in UK has again brought terrorism on the centrestage of the world politics. there is no denying the fact that it is a most serious problem the world is facing at this point of time.
but again a very small point to ponder in these troubled times is that, one of the fuel, to this terrorism is racism. this thing has been overlooked by most of the observers of the international politics. the detention of dr. haneef mohammed in australia is a glaring example of the racist act followed by the state against individuals of foreign origin who are of different skin colour or of different faiths. this state sponsored racism in the australian milieu is deplorable and open to widespread public unrest throughout the world. everyday a new detail emerges out of that sordid tale of implication of an innocent man . still these shameless people who think themselves morally superior to anybody in this world indulged in these squalid state of affairs to convict an innocent man. the revoking of his visa after being granted bail by a court is shameful act that will belittle, most heinous acts.
no law is bad until you are misusing it, or you are twisting it to profile someone a convict who is otherwise innocent. let the truth prevail, let there be light! catch the rouges and leave the innocent in peace.
the act of the state should be honourable and responsible and not clownic in act to distrupt the public peace .
india is celebrating its sixtieth year of independence, and various aspects of its development is being looked into!
Prof. Gyan Prakash, who is the dayton-stockton professor of history at Princeton university has looked into the history of india in a column in india today. he has kept his focus roughly between the period of 1940-47. let us revise what he had to say !
the quit india movement of 1942, launched with the august “uprising” in bombay, signalled a mass challenge to the empire. the imperial response was fierce. most of the top congress leaders were jailed and the initiative was passed to the local leaders, students, and socialist activists. much like 1857, the the upheaveal in the gangetic plane took the form of peasant rebellion.student leaders and kisan sabha activists in bihar and u.p. attacked govt properties, uprooted railway lines, and paralysed the administration. gandhi, the apostle of non-violence, declared that violence was preferable to cowardice. india was in upheaval.
nehru declared in april 1946 that the congress would be free to override any previous agreements for provincial autonomy, if it came in the way of the centre’s plan for national development. in jinnah’s eyes, this was proof of the congress’s perfidy. with mass politics firmly in place, discord at the top made its way quickly onto the streets. jinnah call for “direct action” resulted in communal slaughter across northern and eastern india. thousands were perishered between august 16 and 20 in the great calcutta killing. despite gandhi’s call for non-violence, killings continued and united india was now impossible.
it is noteworthy that depite the britishers intention of dividing india, our intelligent leaders who were british bred fell in their plan to divide india along communal lines in their hunger for power. on the other hand we had gandhijee, who also did his acdemics under the britishers, did not think it good for his own progeny. no wonder there is no one from his family in india who we know to be a great leader. think who is responsible for dividing india……!
left is right.consider this proposition.this single statement can be looked from various perspectives.
the economic policies of the leftist government ,the world over had been towards one single objective- i.e. everybody has a rightful and respectful place in the society.their economic setup is somewhat welfare economy in nature. most of the industry is either in government control or in private hands , controlled by various licenses the government issues.nothing is done at the expense of public good.so , the policies are in fact utopian in nature.
so,the left is right in fact ,in principle. this basic priciple of human equality in fact takes to a situation where every parameters of human relations tend to converge on plane that is very saturated.and there after no progress can be made ,at least as far as my thinking is concerned….that too in principle.but the reality is quite contrary to the beliefs and principles of the pure communist or socialist thoughts.
today the governments all over the are engaged in economic activities that are quite capitalist in nature,there are no exceptions.people may think of china as a country which with a difference.but to my mind they are a pseudo communists and virtual.the difference between the rich and poor has grown many fold in that country.there may be some trickle down effect but the gap has grown manifolds. the growth in chinese economy is due to its capitalistic approach and not due to its socialist or communist policies.the good of the people had been replaced by growth in consumable commodities and some other sectors such as banking and infrastructure.
take the example of nandigram in west bengal, the govt had been following a policy of capitalist industrialisation in the state for some time now, at the expense of the poor farmers. the unrest among the farmers has grown manifold despite some high handed measures by the government.
here the left seems to be going altogether to right and not necessarily that they are right (correct).having said that we must not loose focus of the fact that, if the left is right then right is ultra right.that is a point to think upon.and we will take that subject some other time.
the elections in up are over.the results are almost hard to believe for almost any political party.the results throws light on various new dimensions of the indian electorate.the elections were conducted without any rigging and other malpractices.the election commission must be commended for its stupendous duty.
the triumph of mayawati in these polls have been some kind of eye opener for the big political outfits and also the previous incumbent mr.mulayam sing yadav.he merely fretted about the results as -”election commission didn’t want samajwadi party to win”.that was a stupid assertion in the very first place.
mr. yadav does not seem to be taking any lesson from his misadventures.the political tamasha which he leaded in his state is some kind of sham.the advertisements by amitabh bachchan was as bad in taste as the law and governence in the state.mr. bachchan statement on the bank of ganga didn’t go well with the people who live on its bank.the irony of the situation was evident from the beginning but to think that mayawati will win,seemed some kind of joke.the president of BJP asserted in a thunderous tone that he will never cooperate with mayawati under any circumstance.so were other forces claiming their superiority.but when the results were out peole were seen looking for safe place to bury their faces.the usually outspoken mr. amar singh could find only his luxurious volkswagen to run away from the political tsunami caused by mayawati and company.
so what is the real cause of such a verdict? the analysis of the whole politics in UP says it all.the previous incumbent got it all wrong…..by marketing its achievements(or underachievement) by a big celebrity like mr. amitabh bachchan.it was like selling some kind of beauty products to the masses or shall i say “the chwanprash”.clearly these stupid stunts did’nt go well with the resilient electorate of this great state.when mr.bachchan averred he wanted to take birth on this bank of ganga……people understood, he is not gonna stay here, anyway.when he convinced the audience in his comfort or shall i say “CONFORT” as he is the greatest star of the millenium(poll conducted by BBC at the turn of the century), people felt cheated.and all of these drama failed to get them vote.also it is interesting to note that, mr. bachchan has quipped in the WEEK -”if people feel i should be ashamed of being with amar singh.then i’m proud to be ashamed.” brilliant,but did it help his so called family and political brother.nobody seems to agree with you sir!
on the other hand the triumph of BSP was as clinical as mr. bachchan’s acting capibility.the resounding success of BSP is attributed to its social engineering it conducted successfully in UP.this is partly true, but the main achievement was convincing everyone that she’ll provide the better alternative than any of the political outfit and also convincing them about the clean governence that she intends to give them.that worked…..and that worked miracles.people had already tested all others e.g. BJP,CONG,SP.be it muslims, hindu,obcs,sc/st, nobody had faith in their traditional political outfits.
in a very bizzare incident an ex-minister was shown tearing papers in the secretariate.that proves the level of corruption in the ex-gov.not only that offices were found to be open on sundays and lower ranked people were seen tearing office files. everyone seems to be in that web.
it remains to be seen how the new incumbent operates and also it remains to be seen can it get rid of the corruption and rampant lawlessness.
