GST Bill - A political milestone

GST Bill or the Goods and Services Bill is expected to be replacing the Sales Tax and VAT regime in our country, but there still seems to be a long way before it would get the node of Parliament. That all is a Political BS that needs to be detailed out but before that lets understand the basics of GST.

GST as proposed will be levied where the goods will be consumed and that would mean that the intermediary taxes that keep on adding to the cost of the product and bring in the variable price range from one state to other would be subsumed under GST.  A list of such taxes that would get abolished with the introduction of GST could be - 
  1. Central Excise Tax levied on Manufacturing Unit
  2. Service Tax levied on a Service Provider
  3. Customs Duty levied on Imported goods
  4. CST or Central Sales tax as levied on Inter-State Sales
  5. Value Added Tax (VAT) levied by the States on the Goods or Services
  6. CVD or Countervailing Duty and Special Additional Duty (SAD) as may be levied as compensating duties to Central Excise Tax / Service Tax
So, that would mean that from the layered tax there would be a simple tax regime with Center and State Share or so that to say.  We thus would not be paying taxes on already taxed items as we do today when the goods are sold and purchased at various layers of Wholesale and retail markets where they already pay the tax. As a consumer or end customer, we would definitely be benefitted with effective price control regime and better tax structure resulting in similar price structure of goods and services.

The Business segment would also get benefitted with the uniform structure and would be able to keep almost linear pricing models across the country.  However, the GDP would certainly NOT see the trend in immediate period of 2 years and we may see inflation setting in during that period and there may be a washout of the immediate benefits as may be expected from the GST.  It must be noted that contrary to the common assumption or expectation, the benefits of GDP would not be reaped by the current government with immediate effect (This is where the Politics come into picture).

So, now let's detail out the Political BS that I mentioned in the 1st para above and towards the end of previous para.  The current government is pushing hard to ensure that GST Bill is passed and the new tax regime is deployed with immediate effect because the benefits of GST would start showing from mid 2018 and the economy would show rising strength by the time the election in 2019 set in.  However, the opposition lead by Congress (I) certainly understand this calculation and would prefer to not to let the GST Bill pass until mid 2017. They would then look at letting the GST bill pass and getting enforced because they would then be able to showcase the weak economy, inflation and other economic factors to lure the public in their trap stating the failure of Governance.  That way when the elections in 2019 would set in, it would be easier for the Congress (I) led UPA to come back to power and then they would be in a better position to claim that the economic turnaround was caused by their economic policies. Simple math there as if the GST gets enforced in late 2017, it would only be in early 2020 the benefits would start reaping.

We the common people certainly don not understand all this big level game and we think that the political drama unfolding in the parliament is because the Crown Prince is in trouble.  No, that all is just a hogwash, the actual gameplay is to stall the proceedings in the parliament and not let the Bills like GST Bills pass in the parliament.  If every bill tabled in parliament today passes, then the benefits would be reaped by the current government, but if those bills are passed at a later stage or late in the game, the benefits would be reaped by government that would be formed in 2019.

We need to understand the political BS as being practiced by the Congress (I) and allies to stall the progress of the country and not just the work in Parliament.  GST Bill and every such bill tabled in the Parliament must pass within defined timelines else it would certainly be not the current government's failure, it would be the success of opposition to stall country's progress!!!

Should India Do it

Terrorism has hit India hard time and again from almost the time I remember it. The problem in Kashmir was always existing from the time of freedom from British rule; the problem in Punjab was bred over years than controlled, but again is showing the sign of going the militancy way; the problem of SIMI; the problem of Indian Mujaheedin (IM); the problem of naxalites, the problem of Bodoland. One can keep counting on these points and they would be ever existing.

Most of the problems are existent in India due to state sponsored terrorism; thanks to Pakistan and to certain extent China. Pakistan would have spend more on sponsoring terrorism in India specifically in Kashmir and in Punjab than actually spending on its own development. It has always engaged in Proxy War Fare except for couple of times when it was beaten to dust by Indian Army. Still, if we would do an analysis of the Terrorist operations in India, 90% of them can be easily linked to Pakistan. There are pretty much every terrorist link that originates in Pakistan; Interesting!!!

Coming form that point, if the recent Intelligence inputs are to be believed, Pakistan's spy agency and the God Father of Terrorism in the South Asian region, ISI has plotted yet another way to create unrest in India. This time ISI went on to create communal disturbance by orchestrating murders of Hindu Leaders (may include some prominent Politicians) and thus instigating the communal riots between Hindu and Muslim Community. They are planning to use the SIMI and IM sleeper cells through the links of Dawood Ibrahim (the master mind of 1992 Mumbai Blasts). The whole game plan is expected to spread across states where the communal tensions already prevail and these include - J&K, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. If reports are to be believed, this orchestration of plan would be staged somewhere in March and April, more close to the festival of Holi, the Hindu Festival of Colors. Trailers of this showdown has already been provided for in Punjab by igniting the communal tension with the recent case of torn pages of "Guru Granth Saheb".

So, now the million dollar question to be asked is - "Should India hunt down Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar to end one of the most chased cases in world Crime?" It's not that India would be the first one to do it. We have seen US, Israel, France, Russia, Britain and couple of other nations doing it. We have witnessed India doing it on the eastern border or Myanmar. 

Though in my previous post, I had mentioned that the act of terror can be ended only and only by addressing the resentment, but of that you need both the parties on the table. With specific case of Pakistan as well as Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, the situation is something that would baffle anyone in this world. We have seen that overtime they have come on the table, their security forces or the ISI or their proxy war groups led by likes of Hafeez Saeed, Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar and others have created disturbances either on the border or in the heartland India. In this case specifically, I personally feel that a surgical strike is something that is much needed to bring down the leaders of these terrorist groups.

It would however be interesting to see how the world leaders would join the forum to suggest India to restrain itself from any such surgical strike. They would preach the doctrine of negotiations and self controls and patience and what not, but they themselves would do absolutely different. So, the answer to the question - Should India Do It? lies in the way India braces the decision to do it. Conduct a surgical strike and get over the idiocy of these terrorist leaders. For once India should close its ears, stop listening to the World and go get those bastards and execute them. Yeah certainly some of the NGOs would shout out, the Prestitude Indian Media would try to make TRP news by opposing such move, the Shameless Politicians would try to raise slogans against the government and there would be few other minor disturbances in the country, but overall it would be good for India.

As per my thoughts that certainly are contradicting the doctrine of addressing the root cause, I would say that India Should Do it. India should conduct surgical strikes to wipe out likes of Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar and Hafee Saeed to create that void to connect and coordinate with the disorganized terror outfits like SIMI and IM, which operate more with the help of Sleeper Cells. I guess its high time to get this sorted out for once and for all, post which Pakistan can be dealt more with International Politics or other ways.

One thing for sure - It is time to shoot form the Gun rather than shooting from the lips and making statements like "If another Mumbai or Delhi happens, Pakistan would lose Baluchistan". Such statements basically serve as a challenge that should rather be given in action than in words. No one in India would want to witness another case or terror either in Mumbai, Delhi or elsewhere in the country.

Time to Act - Go Get Them, Do it for once!!!

एक नयी गाथा - हिंदू तालिबान

विगत कुछ दिनो से भारत में एक नयी लहर को उपजा है जिसे भारतीय समाचार पत्रों ने "असहिष्णुता" का नाम दिया।  किंतु अजब देश के ग़ज़ब कहानी तो देखिए कि जिसने भी असहिष्णुता के बारे में कहा या लिखा उसमें से 90 प्रतिशत हिन्दू ही हैं। ये वे हिंदू हैं जो स्वयं को धर्मनिरपेक्ष मानते हैं (हैं या नहीं वे ख़ुद भी नहीं जानते)

इन हिंदू धर्मनिरपेक्ष जंतुओं की प्रजाति में से कुछ तो इस प्रकार बड़बोले बने कि उन्होंने कहीं कोई कसर ही नहीं छोड़ी और कुछ नए शब्द रचित कर दिए - हिंदू तालिबान एवं हिंदू पाकिस्तान।  उनके अनुसार यदि राष्ट्र में इस परवाह से राष्ट्रवादिता एवं हिंदुत्व की धारा चली तो शीघ्रातिशीघ्र भारत में हिंदू तालिबान होगा एवं भारत स्वयं को हिंदू पाकिस्तान में बदल देगा। इतना सब होने के बाद भी वही तथाकथित धर्मनिरपेक्ष प्रजाति के जंतु आज भी भारत में जीवन निर्वाह कर रहे हैं एवं अपनी अव्यवहारिक एवं बीमार मानसिक परिस्तिथि का प्रदर्शन कर रहे हैं।  

कुछ बुद्धिजीवी कहलाने वाले धर्मनिरपेक्ष जंतु तो आज के भारत को 1975 के भारत के समान मानने लगे हैं एवं उनका भारत के विकास के बारे में कुछ अलग ही कहना है।  ऐसे धर्मनिरपेक्ष जंतुओं से मैंने पहले भी कुछ प्रश्न किए थे किंतु उनके पास उन प्रश्नो का कोई उत्तर नहीं है।  एक ऐसे ही महानुभव से हुई वार्तालाप में मुझे सुनने को मिला की तुम राष्ट्र से दूर हो, तुम्हें यह नहीं पता कि यहाँ क्या हो रहा है। मुझे इतना तो पता है की मेरा राष्ट्र आज प्रगति के पथ पर अग्रसर है; वहाँ आज पहले से अधिक रोज़गार है; वहाँ मूलभूत सुविधाएँ पहले से अधिक हैं; आतंकवाद पहले से कम है;

किंतु तथाकथित धर्मनिरपेक्ष जंतुओं को यह नहीं दिखेगा।  उन्हें तो यह रास नहीं आ रहा कि आज राष्ट्र में अशांति और अराजकता समाचारों में अधिक एवं वास्तविकता में कम है।  एक अखलाख के मरने पर तो उनके आँसू नहीं थम रहे, किंतु जब एक हिंदू को मारा जाता है तब उनके मुख में जीव्हा नहीं हिलती? क्यों??  यही बुद्धिजीवी आगरा में हुए एक हिंदू सैनिक की मौत पर क्यों चुप रहे? जब उस हिंदू सैनिक ने एक लड़की की अस्मिता बचाने के लिए अपना जीवन बलिदान कर दिया तब क्यों देश भर में शांति बहाल रही? क्यों तब शोभा डे, अखिलेश यादव और ममता बेनर्जी चुप थे?  इनकी जीव्हा क्या केवल अखलाख के मरने पर ही हिलती है?  शोभा डे स्वयं को यदि धर्मनिरपेक्ष कहती हैं तो मैं इस लेख के माध्यम से उन्हें चुनौती देता हूँ की यदि वे गौ माँस का सेवन कर उसके बारे में बोलने में गौरवानित हैं, तो वहीं किसी भी एक मस्जिद में अजान के समय लाउड्स्पीकर बंद करने का साहस दिखाए।  ममता बेनर्जी एवं अखिलेश यादव सहित अन्य नेताओं को भी मैं चुनौती देता हूँ कि यदि ग़ुलाम अली के कार्यक्रम के स्थगित होने से यदि वे आहत होते हैं तो उन्हें हर कलाकार के कार्यक्रम को बढ़ावा देने का साहस दिखाना चाहिए।

भारत की सांस्कृतिक धरोहर को जीवित रखने वाले हिंदू तालिबान नहीं हाइन, वे भारतीय हैं।  आज विश्व में भारत यदि प्रगति पथ पर अग्रसर राष्ट्र के स्वरूप में देखा जाता है, तो इस राष्ट्र में रहने वाले हर नागरिक का कर्तव्य है कि अपने मानसिक विचारों को राष्ट्रवाद का चोला पहना कर प्रगतिपथ पर अग्रणी हो। विरोध केवल विरोध करने के लिए ना करे, यदि उसके पीछे उसके पास कोई ठोस कारण है तो उसे सबके सामने लाए।

यदि किसी के अनुसार कोई घटना एवाल एक घटना है तो उसे ऐसी हर घटना को एक ही स्वरूप से देखना होगा। जिस घटना की जवाबदेही प्रांतीय सरकार की हो, उसे उस प्रांत की सरकार से प्रासंगिक तौर पर पूछा जाए।  केंद्र सरकार राष्ट्र में हो रही हर घटना के लिए जवाबदेह नहीं है।

अंत में एक ही बात कहूँगा - हिंदू तालिबान एवं हिंदू पाकिस्तान जैसे शब्दों का प्रयोग करने वाले बुद्धिजीवी एवं धर्मनिरपेक्ष जंतुओं, अपने उदर से ध्यान हटा सच पर केंद्रित करो।  ऐसे शब्दों का परायों तुम्हारे मानसिक असंतुलन को जग जाहिर करते हैं, एवं तुम्हारे पाकिस्तान से प्रेम संबंधों को जग में प्रेषित करते हैं।

Tolerance of Intolerant India

India, the land of unity in diversity, the land of diverse cultures, traditions, castes and religions has been labelled as Intolerant by some set of people whom I call as "Pseudo Intellects".  All this debate on Intolerant India started with the #AwardWapsi step taken by one Ms. Nayantara Sahgal related to the ex Prime Minister of India Late J.L. Nehru.  The incident that was sighted was the Dadri episode in which one guy called Akhlakh was killed by Mob over a rumor on Beef and another incident that got related was connected to the murder of a Literate Mr. Kalburgi in Karnataka.  Soon there was a wider debate and it so seemed that every literate was trying to return the Award. It caught up like a wildfire and the national award winners from Film Fraternity soon joined in the what I would now Label as #AwarWapsi Program, for they all organized a gala press conference to show solidarity with such Pseudo Intellects and return their awards with @imsrk also joining those stating to return the National Awards if intolerance raises!!!

Interesting to note that just when the country is seeing a change in the overall ecosystem, just when the country rises 32 steps up to be ranked as the #7 in the International Country as a Brand chart, just when there is a lot of investment flow in to the country is happening, the country turns intolerant.  

Now my questions to these Pseudo Intellects & the Pseudo Seculars are - 
  1. Did the country turn Intolerant only in few months or in last year or so? 
  2. Were Mob Lynching of Akhlakh or Murder of Mr. Kalburgi the only signs of Intolerance?
  3. Why were these Pseudo intellects and Pseudo Seculars quiet over the years on various incidents that can be highlighted as mass atrocities - 
    • 1984 - Sikh Massacre - post the then Prime Minister Ms. Indira Ganhdi's murder
    • 1985 - Anti reservation Rallies by Students with Self immolation and death of Students
    • 1985-1995 - Mass Exodus of Kashmiri Pandit's from Kashmir Valley
    • 1992 - Mumbai Blasts
    • 1992 - 2000 - Various incidents of terrorist activities, Bomb Blasts etc across the country
    • 2001 - Parliament attack
    • 2002 - Godhra Riots
    • 2005 - Mumbai Train Blasts
    • 2008 - Mumbai Shootout
    • Many other incidents across the country including Nirbhaya case, Rapes with Minors including 2 year old girl in Delhi
    • 2015 - Prof in Kerala had his hands chopped off by a group of radicals over a topic on Islam
    • 2015 - A Gau (Cow) Rakshak in Karnataka is Murdered
Why were these Pseudo Intellects & Pseudo Seculars missing from the national scene for these many years.  Ms. Nayantara Sahgal had the guts to say that Kashmiri Pandit's exodus was a local phenomenon, but then wasn't the case of Mr. Kalburgi as well as Akhlakh on the same lines?  

Why do these Pseudo Intellects & Pseudo Seculars forget that there were protests against meat and Beef ban in Mumbai during paryushan and the protestors ate meat on the Road, but the tolerance of Hindu's as well as Jain's prevailed and there was no riot.  Had it been the other way round, am sure there would have been riots.  Consider Beef getting replaced by Pork and then that being displayed in front of a particular community...

Do these Pseudo Intellects & Pseudo Seculars even know that Hinduism as it is known today was spread almost from Middle-East to Far East way back when King Ashoka used to rule this geography? It was I guess the tolerance of so call "Intolerant Hindus" that today we have all the religions that exist in the world.  We respect each and every religion and faith that prevails in this world.  But that again raises few more set of questions on the so called intolerance of Hindus - 
  1. There are almost 300,000+ Churches in India with around 271 or so in Delhi itself. There are way few in Washington DC or in London and I can bet they are way below 100. Isn't that Intolerance?
  2. For Years Christian Missions have been converting poors in rural India to Christianity but when the same is done by Hindus with "Ghar Wapsi" is that to be considered as intolerance?
  3. Muslim Mosques have "Ajaan" or morning prayer at almost 4:30 or 5 AM in the morning across India, irrespective of the Time of the year.  Even during the Exam times. Incidentally the use of Loudspeakers in Hindu celebrations is prohibited and needs special approvals. Not allowed after certain time of the day/night and even in the Marriages, the loudspeakers are banned during the Exam time.  Is that not a "SHOW of Tolerance" and Acceptance by Hindus?
  4. For years Muslim oppressive rulers ruled from Delhi and including so called Liberal Mughals, every muslim ruler either used to get Hindus converted to Islam or get them killed / murdered. This went on for years - so are these Pseudo Intellects & Pseudo Seculars wanting India to go down that path?
  5. Hindus host Iftar Parties and prepare Sehri for the Muslims across India, but do any other community ever do that back for Hindu festivals?  Does Secularism as well as Tolerance has to be only from one side and other side just enjoys the privilege?
  6. When a muslim is killed by a mob, it is atrocity by Majority group on the Minority community and when a Hindu is Killed by a mob, then that person must have irked the minority community. Is that the level of tolerance expected?
If I keep on writing on this topic, trust me, there is a lot and I can write a full Book starting from the way our tolerance has been weighed as our weakness and now, these So called Intellects have woken up all of Sudden with Ms. Shobha De stating in one of the program that now that RTI as well as the Social Media is power in hands of the youth, the youth is asking the question about rising Intolerance.  Incidentally, if I see the #AwardWapsi ceremonial press conferences, videos and photos, I don't see youth and I don't see if youth is even bothered about this stupid Politically Motivated Drama.

There is enough sources for the readers to read about each of the Pseudo Intellect & Pseudo Secular and know when where and how they are related to the Political circle or affiliated to the Political Parties.

Just towards the closing - "Where were these Pseudo Intellects & Pseudo Seculars when the Hindu Population in Pakistan shrunk from 22% in 1947 to 2% in 2015?" is that what represents Tolerance??

I can very well sum up the whole case with a statement - "My Country is Very Tolerant and that's why these Pseudo Seculars & Pseudo Intellects are able to do what they are doing." I dare them to go ahead and try their stunts in Pakistan or any other similar country!!!

मानवधर्म की एक सत्य घटना

गए दिनों की बात है जब मेरी 2 वर्ष की बेटी अपनी नानी के घर बाहर खेल रही थी। वहीं बाहर सड़क पर एक खिलोने बेचने वाला निकला जो कुछ सस्ते और छोटे खिलोने बेच रहा था। उसके पास गुब्बारे देख कर बिटिया मचल गई और उसने गुब्बारों और खिलोनो के लिए अंदर से अपनी माँ को बुलाया। हमारी 2 वर्ष की बच्ची का मन रखने के लिए मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उस खिलोने वाले से कुछ खिलोने खरीदकर जब उसे पैसे दिए तो उसने पूछा "बहनजी पुरे हैं ना?" मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उससे कहा "गिन लो, जितने तुमने बोला था उतने पुरे हैं"।  वह लड़का बोला "बहनजी गिन सकता तो पूछता क्यों? लगता है आपको पता नहीं है मैं अंधा हूँ"।  मेरी धर्मपत्नी एक बार तो सकते में आ गई लेकिन फिर उनसे रहा नहीं गया और उन्होंने उस लड़के से पूछा - "क्या हुआ और कैसे हुआ? क्या तुम जनम से अंधे हो या कोई अनहोनी घटना हुई?"  लड़का  बोला - "जी 5 वर्ष की उम्र तक मेरी आँखें ठीक थी, किन्तु उसके बाद धीरे धीरे मुझे दिखना बंद हो गया"। कुछ और बातें हुईं तो उस लड़के ने बताया कि वह अनाथ है एवं खिलोने बेच कर ही जीवन यापन करता है।

मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उससे और कुछ प्रश्न किये एवं फिर उससे पूछा कि किसी डॉक्टर को क्यों नहीं दिखाते? जिसपर वह लड़का बोला कि प्रतिदिन काम कर कर प्रतिदिन खाने वाला गरीब और अनाथ डॉक्टर को पैसा कहाँ से देगा? इसपर मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उसे आश्वासन दिया कि वह कुछ करेगी उस स्वाभीमानी लड़के के लिए और प्रयत्न करेगी कि उसकी आँखें फिर से ठीक हो जाए और वह देखने लगे।   उस दिन के बाद से मेरी धर्मपत्नी प्रतिदिन उससे कुछ गुब्बारे और खिलोने खरीदती है। उसे लगा कि यदि  यह लड़का सही में अंधा है तो इसकी सहायता करनी चाहिए, किन्तु यदि यह झूठा है तो?  अचम्भे की बात यह थी की वह लड़का प्रतिदिन अपने समयानुसार ही आता था, समय थोड़ा इधर या उधर बहुत ही कम होता था। इसपर मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उससे पूछा कि क्या उसे अपनी राह ढूंढने में कोई समस्या नहीं लगती, तो उसने बताया - "पहले मैं अन्य जगहों पर भी जाता था और मुझे तो दिखाई नहीं देता था किन्तु इस दुनिया में तो आँखे होते हुए भी  लोग सीधी गाडी नहीं चला सकते और एक दो बार मेरे साथ दुर्घटना हुई या होते होते बची। उसके बाद मैंने धीरे धीरे अपने लिए ऐसे रास्ते चुने जिनपर गाड़ियों की कम आवा जाही होती है और बस ऐसे ही जीवन चल रहा है।"

उपरोक्त वाकये के बाद मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने मेरे विचार पूछे और मैंने उन्हें कहा कि वे उसकी  सहायता करें। उनके पहचान में जो आँखों के डॉक्टर हैं उनसे विचार विमर्श कर उसके लिए सहायता उपलब्ध करवाएं। ऐसे स्वाभीमानी लोगों की सहायता करना मानव धर्म है एवं यही मानवता है। इसपर उन्होंने यह प्रण लिया है कि  उस लड़के के लिए उचित प्रबंध कर एवं नेत्र शिविर में उसका नामांकन करवा कर वे उसकी सहायता करेंगी। 

उस लड़के का बड़प्पन देखिये की गरीब है किन्तु इस सहायता के आश्वासन के भी वह मेरी बिटिया को निःशुल्क गुब्बारे देना चाहता है। कहता है "मुझे लगेगा कि आप मेरी सहायता दया देख कर नहीं कर रहे हैं। मेरे पास ज्यादा कुछ नहीं है किन्तु इस बिटिया के लिए प्रतिदिन कुछ गुब्बारे और खिलोने तो हैं।" 

किन्तु मेरी धर्मपत्नी ने उससे कहा - "ये बांटने के लिए नहीं तुम्हारा जीवन  यापन करने के लिए हैं। मोल तो प्रतिदिन लेना ही पड़ेगा।"

Managers are not Natural Leaders

The debate about the topic Manager v/s Leaders is never ending and there can be loads and loads of arguments in favor of each.  However, it needs to be noted that Managers are not Natural Leaders, they need to be trained for Man Management skills.  
In today's competitive world where we need more able leaders, Managers would be considered from the old school of thought where they prefer to command rather than lead by example.  The Business World today needs Able Leaders who can Lead by Setting Examples and who have an ear for suggestions.  Gone are the days when Managers could walk over Subordinates saying "You need to move out of the way and that's it, we are done." Such Managers need to understand that the Market is more competitive today and the Managers if they remain managers may be managing a team of more skilled resources than themselves.
The skills today have grown multifold and specifically in the new tech businesses where knowledge is power, the business should look at reorganizing the Management v/s Leadership aspects. In the world today Management is more inclined towards - Time Management, Skills Management, Budget and Margin Management, Product Management and so on.  When we look at the Old School thought of Man Management then that particular skill is now overtaken by Leadership Management.  With the workforce getting more skilled, gone are the days that they would listen to the "Institutional Lectures" or "Military Like Command".  The old tricks of how to deal with Human Resources have to be changed and so would be the need for the Managers to change.
The organizations that would end the one way dialogue with Human Resource and move to adopt the Leadership Patterns would tend to be more successful than resorting to Man Management Patterns with still working on Personnel Management or Workforce Management.
The Skilled Human Resources have more choices available to them and they also can Walk the Path as Managers would.  If a Manager would say "Either mould my way or Move on", the Human Resources of today have the equal right to say "Adios" as Respect is mutual!!

Hypocrite Liberals - Returning Awards

Indian Writers who were awarded with Sahitya Academy (साहित्य अकादमी) awards are returning their awards aligning with Nayantara Sehgal and going against Academy. Complete news can be read at: 

Now, as usual, I need to dwell deeper in the way these writers who proclaim to be (Pseudo) Seculars with liberal thoughts.  I would understand Nayantara Sehgal's case as she is related to the Nehru-Gandhi family and may have some vested Political interests to create a not so impactful stir in the circle. However, I fail to understand the other writers who seem to be doing it more on the "Me Too" philosophy rather than having their own views for returning the awards.  I can understand that they want to protest on the murder of writers like Kalburgi, but I totally fail to understand their stance on returning the award for Dadri Lynching.  That's the reason I called them "Pseudo Secular." They all acted in a very brainless manner to have linked the Dadri Lynching with Communal tension. Interesting, there is NO, absolutely NO communal tension witnessed in Bisahada village where the said lynching took place.  These writers failed to make note of that and just are riding the wave to sensationalize the not so Communal case.

I really failed to understand the mindset of these Pseudo Secular writers who had made a statement to not mix politics and arts over certain incidents, but aren't they now mixing the same like good old retards? Yeah Derailed Liberals with one way traffic for Secularism can be called as retards/ Good Old adds some respect there I guess because what that section of people have displayed is utter non-sensical hypocrisy to have said one thing on one occasion and acting totally insane on the other occasion. 

These so called Pseudo Seculars have been the reason for the decline of Sanaatan (सनातन) Dharma (धर्म). Before independence and after that such Pseudo Seculars on the name of being liberal paved way for the others to impact the Sanaatan Dhrama and play with its core.  Today once again we see a negative impact of that on us when we look at the overall degradation of religious synergies in India.  Why do these Insane people not understand that the Religion and Politics are two different things and why don't they drive that change through their pen?  Aren't the same sort of writers to be blamed who wrote those DISTORTED History of India singing in praise of the Attackers and showing their glorious victory in looting India? Aren't these kind of writers responsible for the decline of Social strata in India when they praised Britishers and wrote songs on the glorious British Raj in India?  Yes their liberalism is what has resulted in decline of Indian Culture and Indian Languages including Sanskrit and Hindi.  Today if one writes something in Hindi, People have no clue of what is the meaning because they look for meaning in More of what I call as other languages like Urdu and English.  Yes, the power of Hindi as a language has declined with words from other languages invading the space of Hindi Words.  If you disagree, then please read the following statement and comment out if you understood the meaning

वर्तमान समयानुसार क्लिष्ट हिंदी में वार्तालाप करने की चेष्टा करना भी आपके विपरीत जा सकता है एवं आपके नाम के साथ धर्मान्धता को जोड़ आपकी राष्ट्रवादिता पर प्रश्न चिन्ह लगा सकता है। यदि आप स्वयं को राष्ट्रवादी कहलाने के इच्छुक हैं तो आपको क्लिष्ट हिंदी का उपयोग त्याग कर अन्य भाषाओं को अपनाना पड़ेगा। किन्तु क्या इसे सकारात्मक सत्य कहा जाएगा जहाँ आप अपनी मातृभाषा को त्याग पराई भाषा का उपयोग कर स्वयं को राष्ट्रवादी कहलाने का प्रयन्त करेंगे? क्या आपकी अंतरात्मा को यह स्वीकृत होगा? यदि हाँ, तो मुझे यह अत्यंत खेदजनक कथन कहना पड़ेगा कि आपकी अंतरात्मा या तो सुसुप्तावस्था में है अथवा आपके स्वयं उसका परित्याग कर दिया है। 

For those writers who have returned their awards or who are returning their awards, I have one final question - "Are you returning the money that you got along with the award? If Yes, are you also returning it along with the interest accumulated for the years you had the award for?" Interest should in this case be calculated at 8.5% per annum.  And if the answer to any of these questions is NO, then it is height of their Hypocrisy, for they are returning the award, but half of it, because they were benefitted monetarily when they were given the award!!

प्रेम के बदलते स्वरुप

"प्रेम" एक ऐसा शब्द है जिसे सुनते ही हर किसी की बांछे खिल जाती है। फिर वो कोई बच्चा हो, युवा हो, युवती हो या कोई अधेड़ या वृद्ध। लेकिन यहाँ पर हर कोई एक ही गलती करता है और वह है प्रेम की परिभाषा को समझना और प्रेम शब्द को केवल एक ही रिश्ते से बांधना!!

प्रेम की अगर परिभाषा की बात करें तो प्रेम सच, विश्वास , आदर एवं सम्मान का समागम है। प्रेम सत्यता का प्रमाण है और उसमें कुटिलता का कोई स्थान नहीं है; प्रेम विश्वास का अथाह सागर है जिससे आप जितना चाहे रिश्तों ना गागर भर सकते हैं, बिना विश्वास  के प्रेम का औचित्य नहीं है; बिन आदर एवं सम्मान के भी प्रेम का टिकना असंभव है। अतएव अडिग एवं अटूट प्रेम में सत्य, विश्वास, आदर एवं सम्मान का समागम होता है। 

अब यदि हम रिश्तों की बात करें तो रिश्ते बिना प्रेम के असंभव है। वैसे ही मित्रता का विश्लेषण करें तो प्रेम के बिना मित्रता भी असंभव है। इसीलिए उस भोज को जिसमें आप रिश्तेदारों एवं मित्रजनों को बुलाते हैं, उसे प्रीतिभोज कहा गया है एवं रिश्तेदारों एवं मित्रजनो को "स्नेहीजन"। 

अब आप सब सोचेंगे की इस सबमें प्रेम किस स्वरुप में बीच में आया? जी मैं अब आपको प्रेम की मझधार से बाहर निकाल कर प्रेम के अलग अलग स्वरूपों में गोटे लगवाता हूँ -

  1. माता पिता द्वारा बच्चे को जन्म देकर इस संसार में लाना, उसे हर कदम पर सम्भलना एवं उसे बड़े होते हुए देखना; माँ का अपने बच्चों को हर मौके पर अपने आँचल में समेटना; पिता का उन्हें अपनी छाँव में सम्भालना; और हर ऐसा कार्य जो माता पिता अपने बच्चों के लिए करते हैं जिसमें त्याग भावना भी सम्मिलित होती है, वह उनके प्रेम से परिपूर्ण होता है । 
  2. बच्चे का बड़े होकर मित्रों से मिलाना; मित्रजनो के साथ अठखेलियां कर क्रीडांगन में क्रीड़ा करना; मित्रों संग घनिष्ठता से रहना, ये सभी प्रेम का दूसरा स्वरुप है । 
  3. और बड़े हो कर बच्चे का नौकरी पर जाना, वहां अपने सहकर्मियों के बीच सम्मिलित होना, सहकर्मियों की सहायता करना, ये भी प्रेम का एक स्वरुप है । 
  4. फिर बच्चे का विवाह होना, विवाह उपरांत पत्नी संग घर बसाना, अपने बच्चों के भविष्य की चिंता करना, यह भी प्रेम का एक और स्वरुप है । 
इस प्रकार यदि आप देखेंगे तो परिस्थितिवश प्रेम केवल अपना स्वरुप बदलता है, प्रेम कभी समाप्त नहीं होता। मैं कर बार सुना है कि बेटा माता पिता के प्रेम में पत्नी से पक्षपात कर रहा है, या पत्नीप्रेम में माता पिता को भूला जा रहा है, किन्तु इसमें हो क्या रहा है? यही कि बेटा अंधत्व की ओर अग्रसर है। उसे प्रेम के विभिन्न स्वरूपों का ज्ञान नहीं है एवं वह अपने प्रेम को सही समयानुसार ढाल नहीं पा रहा है। कई बार लोगों ने यह भी प्रश्न किया की माँ और पत्नी में से किसका प्रेम ज्यादा महत्वपूर्ण है?  इसका कोई उत्तर नहीं है एवं इसका कोई एक उत्तर देने वाले ने दोनों प्रेम की महत्ता नहीं समझी। यदि आप भी इसके उत्तर में माँ  या पत्नी में से किसी के उत्तर पर जाते हैं तो आप निष्पक्ष नहीं हैं। माँ एवं पत्नी दोनों ही बलिदान का स्वरुप हैं। माँ जिसने हमें जनम दिया उसे लिए कष्ट उठाये, ९ महीने पेट में रखा और ना जाने कितने और बलिदान दिए क्या उसका प्रेम अपनी जगह महत्वपूर्ण नहीं है? पत्नी, जो अपने पीहर में सारे रिश्ते, मित्र, सखी सहेली, सब छोड़ कर आपके घर आई, जिसने आपके परिवार एवं वंश को चलने के लिए सारे कष्ट उठाये, आपके बच्चों को जन्म दिया, क्या उसका प्रेम अपनी जगह महत्वपूर्ण नहीं है? यही बात सास, ससुर, बहन, ननंद, साली पिता, भाई एवं पति के लिए भी लागू होती है। हर रिश्ते में अलग प्रेम भावना होती है एवं है प्रेम भावना का अपना महत्व होता है। 

यही हमें कुछ करना है तो हर प्रेम भावना का औचित्य समझ उसे सम्भालना है। यही एक कार्य हम कुशलतापूर्वक कर लें, तो जीवन में काफी कठिनाइयाँ समाप्त हो जाएंगी। 

घुँघट प्रथा - एक कुरीति

भारतीय संस्कृति का अभिन्न अंग कही जाने वाली घुँघट प्रथा क्या वाकई भारतीय है?  यदि आप इस प्रश्न पर गहन चिंतन करेंगे एवं इतिहास के पन्नों में इसकी उत्पत्ति का  खोजेंगे, तो आपका उत्तर होगा - "नहीं"। 

जी हाँ, घुँघट प्रथा भारतीय संस्कृति की अपनाई हुई एक कुरीति  जिसने वर्षों से  स्त्रियों को प्रगति राह पर अग्रसर होने से रोक है। घुँघट प्रथा की आड़ लेकर भारतीय  संस्कृति ने महिला शोषण को और भी प्रज्ज्वलित किया है। यदि घुँघट प्रथा इतनी ही प्रचलित है तो हमारी बहन बेटियों को अपने बालपन से ही घुँघट करना चाहिए; अन्यथा उन्हें कभी घुँघट नहीं करना चाहिए। क्यों हम स्वयं ही बेटी और बहु में अंतर पनपने देते हैं? क्यों आदर एवं सम्मान का नाम देकर बहुओं से घुँघट करते हैं? क्या हमारे पूर्वजों ने इस प्रथा का आरम्भ किया था जो हम इसे पीढ़ी दर पीढ़ी मानते आये हैं? ऐसे कई प्रश्न है जिनका उत्तर स्वाभाविक तरीके से एक आम भारतीय हाँ में ही देगा। किन्तु क्या यह सत्य है? नहीं, कृपया आप निम्न पहलुओं पर चिंतन करें - 

  1. घुँघट प्रथा कब से प्रारम्भ हुई - ईस्वीं सं १००० के बाद 
  2. घुँघट प्रथा क्यों प्रारम्भ हुई - क्योंकि दूर देश से आये आक्रमणकारी हमारी बहन बेटियों का रूप देख उनका शील भांग करने लगे थे
  3. घुँघट प्रथा के प्रचन में वृद्धि कब से हुई - बाहरी देशों से आये आक्रमणकारी  में बसने लगे तो वे अपने साथ अपनी प्रथा लेकर आये - "हिजाब" से घुँघट प्रथा का प्रचलन बढ़ा 
यदि उपरोक्त पहलुओं पर आपकी सहमति नहीं है तो आप एक बार फिर से प्राचीन संस्कृति का अध्ययन करें। सहस्त्रों वर्षों से चली आ रही परम्पराओं का अध्ययन करें। सतयुग की रामायण से लेकर महारानी पद्मिनी के जोहर तक की दंतकथाएं पढ़ें। कहीं से कहीं तक आपको घुँघट प्रथा का प्रचलन नहीं मिलेगा। 

यदि हम महारानी पद्मिनी के जोहर की बात करें, तो  उल्लेखनीय है कि तत्कालीन मुस्लिम शाषक ने महारानी पद्मिनी के रूप के गुणगान सुनकर चित्तौड़ महाराज से आग्रह किया कि उन्हें महारानी के दर्शन करने हैं। मित्रता का हाथ बढाकर वह  चित्तौड़ आया एवं उसने दर्पण में महारानी पद्मिनी की छवि देखी। और उसकी मक्कारी इतिहास में लिखी गई, चित्तौड़ से वापस लौटकर उसने चित्तौड़ पर आक्रमण किया। उस युद्ध में महाराजा को वीरगति प्राप्त हुई एवं यह सुनकर महारानी पद्मिनी ने अपनी दासियों सहित आत्मदाह कर लिया।  किन्तु इसमें उस मक्कार एवं दुष्ट शाषक का छल था ना की घुँघट ना करने दोष। वह मक्कार शाषक महारानी को उठाकर अपने हरम में रखना चाहता था। तो क्या किसी दुष्ट के डर से महारानी घुँघट कर लेती? 

यदि एक बार फिर हम बहन बेटियों एवं बहुओं की बात करें तो हमारी बहन बेटी घुँघट नहीं करती फिर भी उन्हें अपने पिता एवं भाई से आदर एवं स्नेह मिलता है। फिर ससुराल आ कर क्यों उसे अपने ससुर, जेठ एवं दामाद से घुँघट करना पड़ता है? क्या ससुर पता एवं देवर जेठ भाई नहीं होते? क्या उनसे घुँघट करने से उनका आदर कम हो जाता है?  क्या ननंद और नंदोई से घुँघट करने से उनका सम्मान बढ़ जाता है?  मेरे विचारों में नहीं सम्मान बढ़ता नहीं है अपितु वे सम्मान खो देते हैं। मेरे विचारों में घुँघट उनसे किया जाना चाहिए जिनकी आँखों में लज्जा ना हो, जो एक स्त्री को केवल भोग विलास की वास्तु मानते हों, जिन्हें एक स्त्री में अपनी माँ, बहन एवं बेटी नहीं दिखती। मेरे विचार में घुँघट प्रथा को बढ़ने वाले वे वहशी हैं जो अपनी बहन बेटियों की रक्षा करने को तो आतुर रहते हैं, किन्तु किसी और की बहन बेटी उनके लिए केवल भोग विलास की "वस्तु" होती है। 

कुछ लोग मेरे विचारों का खंडन करेंगे एवं कहेंगे की लड़कियों एवं स्त्रियों को मर्यादित करने हेतु घुँघट अनिवार्य है; ऐसे महानुभावों से मेरा एक ही आग्रह है - " बहन बेटियों को मर्यादित रखने से ज्यादा आवश्यक है बेटों को मर्यादित करना। बेटियों को घुँघट में घोंट मारने से ज्यादा महत्वपूर्ण है समाज में उनका मान सम्मान बढ़ाना। बेटों को मर्यादित करोगे तो वे दूसरे की बेटियों का शील भांग करने की चेष्टा नहीं करेंगे और जब ऐसा नहीं होगा तब किसी को घुँघट नहीं करना पड़ेगा"

कृपया एक गाना भी याद रखिएगा - घुँघट की आड़ से दिलबर का दीदार अधूरा रहता है, जब तक ना पड़े आशिक की नज़र श्रृंगार अधूरा रहता है

कॉंगेस का अधूरा सत्य

आज फेसबुक पर भारतीय राष्ट्रीय कांग्रेस (ई) द्वारा जारी एक चलचित्र (वीडियो) देखा जिसमें उन्होंने बड़ी सफाई से वर्तमान प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेंद्र मोदी को खलनायक बताया गया है। इस विडिओ में कांग्रेस ने श्री मोदी द्वारा कनाडा, जर्मनी एवं चीन में दिए गए भाषणो में से तथाकथित पन्तियाँ दर्शाई हैं जिनमें श्री मोदी ने पहले के भारत के प्रति कुछ हद तक की सच्चाई का वर्णन किया है। प्रस्तुति में उन्होंने श्रीमती इंदिरा गांधी, श्री राजीव गांधी एवं श्री मनमोहन सिंह द्वारा दिए गए भाषणो का भी सम्मिलित किया है। 

संपूर्ण प्रस्तुति को देखने के बाद मैंने जब विश्लेषण किया तो मुझे कांग्रेस नहीं श्री मोदी के कथन सच लगे। मैं विगत ग्यारह (११) वर्षों से विदेश भ्रमण कर रहा हूँ एवं इस समय भी मैं संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में रहता हूँ। मैंने सं २००४ से अब तक जो बदलाव देखा है उसमें सबसे बड़ा बदलाव पिछले एक साल में आया है। जी हाँ पिछले एक साल में यहाँ अमेरिका में जिस प्रकार मेरे आस पास लोगो का बर्ताव बदला है उसे केवल एक प्रवासी भारतीय नागरिक ही समझ सकता है, जिसने अपने राष्ट्र के दोनों स्वरुप देखें हैं (राष्ट्र में रह कर भी एवं विदेशों में भ्रमण कर कर भी)

पहले जब प्रवासी भारतियों से वार्तालाप होता था तो ऐसा लगता था कि उन्हें वापस जाने की कोई चिंता ही नहीं थी। उन्हें भारत छोड़े, ८ से १५ या २० वर्ष हो चुके थे। उन्हें भारत में प्रगति के कोई आसार ही नहीं दिखाते थे।  पिछले ११ वर्षों में मैं अमेरिका के कोलम्बस, न्यूयॉर्क, टेक्सास, फ्लोरिडा, मिनेसोटा, इलेनॉइस, कैलिफ़ोर्निया, नेवाडा, न्यूजर्सी, उत्तरी कैरोलिना, एरिज़ोना, वाशिंगटन डी सी एवं वर्जिनिओ प्रांतो में रह रहे भारतियों से बात की है]

आज जब मैं उनमें से किसी से भी मिलता हूँ तो मुझसे कहते हैं कि आज भारत में तरक्की के बहुत आसार हैं। उनमें से बहुत से भारत कम से कम एक बार तो जा ही आए हैं, और यहाँ उस बात का उल्लेख करना आवश्यक है कि उनमें से काफी १९८४ के दंगो से त्रस्त हो कर आये थे एवं उनमें से कई सिख समुदाय से हैं। 

क्या कांग्रेस अपने किये हर काम का विश्लेषण स्वयं करेगी एवं क्या राष्ट्र को सत्य से अवगत करवाएगी? क्या कांग्रेस इतिहास के पानो में दबे हुए सच को सामने लाएगी। क्या इतिहास का सत्य सामने लाएगी? 

कांग्रेस का यह अत्यंत ही खेदजनक व्यवहार है एवं वह नागरिकों के सामने केवल अधूरा सत्य लाती है। सं १९४७ से आज तक इतिहास में हमें कितना असत्य बताया गया है एवं कितना सत्य उन्होंने दबाया है, यह हम कभी नहीं भूल सकते।  आज दिन प्रतिदिन कांग्रेस का सत्य सामने आ रहा है तब उस सत्य से नागरिकों का ध्यान बताने के लिए फिर एक बार अधूरे सत्य का सहारा ले रही है। राष्ट्र को इस असत्य की राजनीति से परे हट भारत के सत्य से अवगत होना चाहिए। कांग्रेस की इस अधूरे सत्य में छुपी अलगाववाद की राजनीति से भारत को मुक्त करवाना है

भारत में पत्रकारिता का पतन

कभी सोचता हूँ की भारत में समाचार पत्रों के माध्यम से अथवा विभिन्न टीवी चैनल्स के माध्यम से हमें क्या समाचार प्रेषित होते हैं। आज का पत्रकार मेरे विचार में पत्रकार काम और भांड ज्यादा बन चूका है। एक समय था जब पत्रकारिता आजीविका का साधन तो थी, किन्तु उसमें एक सत्यवादिता थी।  आज सत्य का तो पता नहीं चलता किन्तु समाचारों में विश्लेषकों की वादिता रह गयी है। आज हमें समाचार नहीं सुनने को मिलते अपितु समाचारों के नाम पर विश्लेषकों का मत सुनने को मिलता है। 

पत्रकारिता आज बिकाऊ व्यवसाय बन चुकी है एवं इसमें अधिकतर व्यक्ति केवल धनार्जन हेतु ही कार्यरत हैं। धनार्जन यदि आजीविका के लिए हो तो मैं समझ सकता हूँ, किन्तु आज के वरिष्ठ प्पत्रकार जिस विलासिता से जीवन यापन करते हैं, उससे तो अन्यथा ही प्रतीत होता है। ऐसे ही दो वरिष्ठ पत्रकार हैं इस राष्ट्र में जिनके नामो का उल्लेख किये बिना ही उनके कर्मों का विश्लेषण करने से हमें ज्ञात होगा कि वे एवं उनकी प्रजाति के पत्रकार किस प्रकार पत्रकारिता की मर्यादा का उलंघन एवं हनन करते हैं। वैसे आप समझ चुके होंगे मैं किन दो वरिष्ठ पत्रकारों के कार्यों का विश्लेषण करने का उल्लेख कर रहा हूँ। ये दोनों पत्रकार एक ही टीवी चैनल में लगभग एक साथ ही आये थे, किन्तु आज दोनों अलग अलग टीवी चैनल्स पर कार्यरत हैं।   

तो पहले पत्रकार के कर्मों का विश्लेषण करें तो हम पाएंगे कि उन्हें काश्मीर एवं पाकिस्तान से कुछ अलग ही लग्गाव है। कारगिल युद्ध के समय प्रसिद्धि प्राप्त करने वाली ये महोदया, कभी भी कहीं भी भारत-पाकिस्तान एवं काश्मीर पर चर्चा प्रारम्भ कर देती हैं। इसका जीवंत उदहारण अमेरिका के न्यूयॉर्क प्रांत में उन्होंने राष्ट्र के समक्ष रखा। एक तीसरे राष्ट्र में जा कर भारत-पाकिस्तान के छात्रों का समूह बना कर इन्होने भारत एवं पाकिस्तान के प्रधान मंत्रियों के एक ही निवास स्थान में रहने किन्तु वार्तालाप ना करने के बारे में चर्चा कर दी। क्या इसे अशोभनीय नहीं कहा जाएगा? उसी चर्चा में इन्होने काश्मीर पर चर्चा का विषय भी चुना, क्या यही उनकी राष्ट्रवादिता है? इन्हे तो कारगिल के समय भी लज्जा नहीं आई थी जब अपने पत्रकार होने का धाक इन्होने सैनिकों पर दिखाई थी। अपनी प्रसिद्धि पर इन्हे इतना गर्व है कि जो ये कह दें वहीँ समाचार बनना चाहिए एवं वही प्रसारित भी होना चाहिए। 

उनकी जोड़ी के दूसरे वरिष्ठ पत्रकार हैं जिन्होंने मेडिसन स्क्वायर पर राष्ट्रवाद का मखौल बनाया था। देश के प्रधान मंत्री को अमेरिका में आ कर लगभग आतंकवादी ही बना दिया था। सं २००२ से इनके जिव्हा से गुजरात के दंगों का प्रचार होता आया है एवं आज भी इन्हें कुछ और मिले ना मिले उस विषय पर ये वार्तालाप करने को तत्पर रहते हैं। इन्हें तो संपूर्ण भारतवर्ष में हुए दूसरे दंगों से कोई वास्ता ही नहीं है। इनकी सुई केवल वहीं जा कर अटक जाती है। अभी विगत कुछ दिनों में इन्होने एक और महान कार्य किया जिसमें इन्होने महाराष्ट्र के मुख्यमंत्री को सार्वजनिक पत्र लिख कर मांस पर लगे प्रतिबन्ध पर प्रश्न किये। किसी भी नेता को नीचा दिखाने को तत्पर रहने वाले इन वरिष्ठ पत्रकार को इतना भी नहीं समझा कि थोड़ा शोध कर लेते। 

अब यदि हमारे राष्ट्र में ऐसे २ महानुभाव पत्रकारिता के पाठ पढ़ाएंगे तो ये तो तय है कि हमें समाचार नहीं भाँडो की जिव्हा से निकले विभिन्न प्रकार के विश्लेषण ही सुनने को मिलेंगे एवं हम अपने विचार उन विचित्रपूर्वक विश्लेषणों से ही व्यर्थ पनपाएंगे।  

पत्रकारिता के ऐसे पतन का मैं सर्वदा विरोधी रहा एवं रहूंगा। 
क्या आप मेरे साथ सहमत हैं?

To Do Right or To Do What Right I am Supposed To Do

Often in our life we get stuck with a dilemma to do the right thing or to do what is right for you to do. This is a very peculiar situation for us to get into both in personal as well as professional life.  It is a situation where most of us either have an internal clash or clash it out with the other parties that are involved in the decision making process.  Such situation often lead to depressing situation where we give it out and then we give it in aka we surrender.  But is that what we are supposed to do?

There may be several possible solutions and may be several ways to deal with the situation.  But then the dilemma that persists is Whether to do the Right thing or do the things that are right for you to do?  On one side is your own self esteem and often self pride hidden behind your passion to do right things.  You as a professional love your profession and job and want to do every bit to add to your bucket of achievements. Who gets benefited is not your immediate concern because that for you is a micro level result.  On the other side is your position with the other decision makers and other impacted parties if you do the right thing.  They would always want to ensure that you do what is supposed to be right for you to do.  Expectations clash that actually start the game and you get caught up in that game.

I often wonder on what could be the most apt and win win solution for all the parties?  and trust me, until I discussed this situation with my colleague / friend who is my "Go-To" person, I was not able to arrive at the solution myself.  

According to my colleague / friend, the best thing to do in such a situation is to "Cut-off" or "Backout" from the decision making. Stop thinking about the situation that is raising the clash inside you. Once you do that and put that at the back of your head and move on with your regular work.  Don't stress yourself for that decision as it is anyways not going to work out either in favor or against you.  The clashes in that case would also rest in peace and the sanity would prevail for you to be able to be in the driver's seat.

Clashes in this case as well as in any case only waste time and divert the attention of people from your work & aptitude to your attitude and other behavioral aspects. So, let go of the clashes and let sanity prevail!!!

Animal Rights - Micro Views

I have always thought that NGOs working on Animal Rights are doing a wonderful job only until late when I saw a post on Facebook stating "Dogs are the Only Animal and Cows are Birds". I was intrigued to actually look at the ways NGOs involved in cause for Animal Rights are actually dealing this as.  And well a lot was involved in the way they actually dealt with the Case of Animal Rights similar to those of Human Rights... Protect the Choicest one, rest may Perish!!!

So, when I looked at the ways NGOs involve themselves on the name of Animal Rights, they are looking at Pets aka Dogs, Cats and to some extent Rabbits et al.  Their scope of responsibility is much fixed around limited number of animals and may be so, for the others have commercial utility value and unlike Dogs and Cats (specifically), others are not intelligent or others do not have the capacity of expressing themselves.  Just consider this - Dogs and Cats are treated almost like own family members and at times are treated equivalent to children at home.  The example of this can well be witnessed in the Akshay Kumar starrer movie "Entertainment". Yeah, certainly the idea would have struck the writer when he/she would have witnessed / heard / experienced something as mentioned above and finally we see the movie.

However, coming to the other animals like Cows, Sheeps / Lambs or Goats, they are never considered pets, rather are considered as Cattle Stock or Live Stock.  Stress here is on the word Stock, irrespective of whether cattle or live, they are still referred to as STOCK. What does that mean to me is - they are part of a Balance Sheet and that the Stock would be on the books until it turns to be an NPA or Non-Performing Asset. So just like an NPA, the Live / Cattle Stock is disposed off to Butchers on expiry of their productivity value.  And what Butchers do is known to all.

As if that was not enough, we have seen a more recent trend of Commercialization of Meat Factories and the backfill industry of cattle "producers" has increased.  Just like Agriculture, these entrepreneurs have taken up to breeding and supply of Live Stock for the butchers directly. That is they grow cattle stock only to sell it to the butchers and make money, And the unhygienic conditions that are breeding and development of Live Stock happens is one hell of pathetic stuff to know and witness.

But to all this, the NGOs working for animal rights just turn a blind eye.  They just keep looking at the other side.  Why, may be they are too fond of Red Meat for which Cows, Goats and Sheeps are a vital source and so if they would generalize the Animal Welfare and Rights concepts, their favorite food would not be available to them in the market. Or may be there aren't enough sponsors in the market for them to fight for larger chunk of Animals.

It is interesting to see how these NGOs also turn a blind eye towards the Tiger / Lion Poaching and how they turn deaf to the yelling of deers / elephants and other wild life animals. They go for choicest of choicest Animals to the best of their convenience...

Shouldn't NGOs stop being hypocrite and start supporting cause of all animals irrespective of which animal is that!!! Certainly Cows, Goats and Sheeps are no bird species as they neither have feathers nor do they lay eggs!!

Draught - Solution That may be considered

Draught is certainly one of the worst situation to face and if you are a farmer then it is the worst bane to your life.  This is what is happening with the farmers in India where the lack of rain has been resulting with farmers committing suicide. There are various factors that actually add to the agony of the farmers apart from the rains.  They certainly get exploited in the whole logistics chain from what they cultivate and what they make. One such case that I heard was of the farmer who cultivated 2000 or so kgs of Pomegranate but ended up with only few rupees.

Now in the whole series of incidents, the government gets blamed for inactivity or of not adopting fair policies. To certain extent I would agree with the blame on government as the government is ineffective in curbing the grey market and middleman culture a prevalent. The level of corruption is so high that even the Government officials are hand in glove for commission purpose and thus the fair minimum price defined by Government is not something that actually reaches the farmer.  And so compounded with all the problems the farmers head to commit suicide.

So, what should we be looking at to help those farmers committing suicide?

  1. Donate some funds to provide help
  2. Steer a movement against government and stage protest against government policies
  3. Educate farmers to steer clear of the middleman and corrupt officials
  4. Educate and Unite farmers for proactive ways on Water harvesting?
  5. Helping Farmers create Cooperative Society that should be taking their products to the Market and get them fair price advantage based on the share of their crops they bring in?
If I were to ask I would pick 1 with 4 & 5 to help them be self reliant and not just help them monetarily.  Belong them monetarily would have a one time or say short term impact. What is needed is a long term solution that would mean educating them on Water harvesting as well as creating the Farmer Cooperative Society and yes that would certainly need good financial backing.

The long term solution the way I would see getting unfolded would be - 
  1. Constituting the Farmers Cooperative Society as a registered organization with representation of farmers
  2. The Farmers Cooperative society can be national level society with Share holding patter defined differently for different levels of society
  3. Keeping the shareholding pattern of the Cooperative Society matching with the pattern of Produce that the Farmers bring in
  4. Setting up of funds to run the show at Farmers Cooperative Society
  5. Working with farmers to set up water harvesting projects and ensure that the water harvesting is worked out in an optimized manner
  6. Ensuring that the Water Harvest is covered and protected adequately from loss and contamination of water
  7. The overall control to be with the Cooperative Society with no Government interference as well as no scope of middleman as the Cooperative Society should be the one to deal with market directly rather than the middleman...
I appreciate the efforts that are being taken by like so Nana Patekar, Akshay Kumar and others, but then my request would be to work on a larger initiative than just donating money....ensure that the money you donated reaches the right end point and is utilized optimally.

Being Vegetarian is Human

If you have a weak heart, I would suggest you to skip this presentation.
This presentation shows why we the Vegetarians are better off and why we should promote vegetarianism. The truth behind the way they raise, and slaughter animals to make their living would definitely bring on you feelings to stop slaughter houses. This is Barbaric act....

Those who promote meat and who support mean as a vital source of protein also need to see the way they promote the Barbaric acts as highlighted in the presentation by @peta.  They should also note that the unhealthy and unhygienic ways including GMO chemicals that are induced in the animals are one of the reason why the overall health of a human being is deteriorating. It is important to know the pros and cons of meat consumption and for me, I see that the cons outweigh pros by a huge margin.

I am happy to say I am a Vegetarian and have been happy to be so all my life.

Inflated Fuel Prices in India

It is pretty shocking that we are one of the fastest growing economies in the world, yet we do not have the required transparency in the system. There are way too many grey areas in the way our government functions and the way various price indices are set.  One such case is of the Fuel prices in India.  When we actually look back at the Fuel Prices in India v/s the Global Fuel Prices, we find a lot of discrepancy in the way the Fuel prices are set in India.

I was shocked quite a bit when I revisited the trend of Fuel prices in India for past 10 years.  Let me depict my findings figuratively - 

Year Crude Brent $/Barrel Rs/$ Rs/Barrel Barrel to Litre Rs / Litre Crude Petrol price in India Rs./ltr
Aug-04 44.9 44 1975.6 119.24 16.57 36.81
Aug-05 65 46.11 2997.15 119.24 25.14 43.49
Aug-06 73.1 44.49 3252.219 119.24 27.27 43.51
Aug-07 72.4 39.33 2847.492 119.24 23.88 43.52
Aug-08 116.6 49.82 5809.012 119.24 48.72 50.62
Aug-09 71 46.29 3286.59 119.24 27.56 44.63
Aug-10 76.8 45.09 3462.912 119.24 29.04 51.45
Aug-11 86.3 51.1 4409.93 119.24 36.98 63.7
Aug-12 94.2 55.45 5223.39 119.24 43.81 68.46
Aug-13 106.2 58.39 6201.018 119.24 52.00 71.28
Aug-14 98.15 60.56 5943.964 119.24 49.85 70.33
Aug-15 43.37 66.02 2863.2874 119.24 24.01 63.2

Table:1 Brent Oil and Petrol Prices Variation over 11 years

So, Now looking at the trend, the petrol prices in India should actually be in the range of Rs 43/ltr or Rs. 44/ltr.  But we are actually paying anything between Rs. 63/ltr to Rs. 73/ltr which is way above the mean price from the trend above.

What is the logic of this 50% price difference for Petrol from the 2004 to what they are today, when the Crude Oil is at the similar level as in 2004 with the cost of per ltr of crude oil being same as what it was back in 2005, 2006 or 2007.  Why are we paying a a higher rate?  Are we paying for someone else getting the subsidy?

Don't we think that if the prices actually get adjusted to the Actual Market levels, we would see lower cost of supply an logistics and thus lower rates of various consumables? I would love to see a logic and Facts and figures to beat the table depicted above else, we should actually be looking at a movement to get Fuel at par with Prevailing world market.

आरक्षण - अवसरवादी राजनीति

सन १९४७ में भारत स्वतंत्र तो हुआ, किन्तु साथ ही शुरू हुई एक अलग ही अधीनता। यह अधीनता थी राजनितिक अधीनता जिसका शुभारम्भ तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री जवाहरलाल नेहरू के कार्यकाल में हुआ था। जवाहरलाल नेहरू के अनुसार पिछड़े वर्ग, अनुशुचित जाती एवं अबुसूचित जनजाति को विद्यालयों में तथा सरकारी नौकरी में कुछ प्रतिशत आरक्षण का प्रयोजन किया गया। तत्समयानुसार इस आरक्षण का प्रावधान केवल प्रथम २०  वर्षों के लिए किया गया था। परन्तु,  समय के साथ राष्ट्र ने जो राजनितिक पतन देखा उसके चलते मत (वोट) की राजनीती के लिए इंदिरा गांधी ने इस प्रावधान को कानून बना दिया। उसके बाद राजीव  के प्रशाशन काल में जो आरक्षण के पक्ष और विपक्ष में आंदोलन हुए वे अपने आप में एक गाथा हैं। उसके बाद भी हमने आरक्षण के जो प्रावधान देखें हैं उनके अनुसार आज के समय में ४९% के आसपास आरक्षण का प्रावधान है। 

यदि हम आज के समय में आरक्षण का आकलन करें तो पाएंगे की ४९% आरक्षण के बाद भी पिछड़ा वर्ग, अनुसूचित जाती, अनुशुचित जनजाति एवं अन्य पिछड़े वर्ग सामान्य श्रेणी के ५१% में भी अपना हक़ जताते हैं। 
 क्या यह अपने आप में एक लज्जाजनक बात नहीं है?  अपने राजनीतिक लाभ के लिए कुछ राजनेताओं ने आरक्षण के प्रावधानों का जो दुरुपयोग किया है, उसका दुष्परिणाम आज हमारे सामने है। पहले हरियाणा में जाट आंदोलन, उसके पश्चात गुज्जर आंदोलन, और अब गुजरात में पटेल आंदोलन, ये सभी एक तरह से राजनितिक अवसरवादिता की अधीनता के ही परिणाम हैं। 

आज हर दूसरा वर्ग पिछड़े वर्ग अथवा अन्य पिछड़े वर्ग में अपना नाम सम्मिलित करवाना चाहता है, क्यों? क्योंकि उन्हें पता है कि भारत की अवसरवादी राजनीति के अधीन यही उचित है। यदि आरक्षण का प्रावधान इसी प्रकार अजगर की तरह अपना मुंह फाड़ता रहा, तो वह समय दूर नहीं जब सामान्य वर्ग अपने लिए आरक्षण की मांग करेगा और उसमें केवल सामान्य वर्ग को ही योग्यता अनुरूप जगह मिलेगी। 

स्वतंत्रता के इतने वर्षों बाद भी किसी भी राजनितिक दल ने अथवा तथाकथित बुद्धिजीवी ने यह मांग नहीं उठाई कि वर्गानुसार आरक्षण की जगह आर्थिक स्तर पर आरक्षण का प्रावधान किया जाए। किसी भी प्रधानमंत्री, गृह  मंत्री अथवा किसी भी अन्य मंत्री ने क्या इस प्रावधान में परिवर्तन के बारे में कोई पहल की?? नहीं, क्योंकि उसका कोई राजनितिक औचित्य नहीं होगा। 

किन्तु, आज के समय वर्ग के अनुसार आरक्षण प्रावधान की जगह आर्थिक स्तर पर आरक्षण का प्रावधान ज्यादा मायने रखता है। देश के सर्वोच्च प्रशाशनिक कार्यालय के करता धर्ता होते हुए, भारत के प्रधानमंत्री को वर्ग अनुसार आरक्षण पद्धति को तत्काल प्रभाव से निष्क्रिय घोषित कर नए आरक्षण प्रावधानों के  गठन के लिए उच्चस्तरीय दल  का गठन करना चाहिये। यदि आज राष्ट्र ने इन आंदोलनों से सीख नहीं ली तो यह तो तय है की आने वाले कुछ वर्षों में एक और महाभारत एवं एक और चक्रव्यूह की रचना होगी और इसके लिए केवल और केवल हमारे राष्ट्र की राजनितिक अवसरवादिता और राजनितिक अधीनता ही जिम्मेवार होगी ।

Cooking Gas Subsidy

Just in very recent times there has been a lot flutter in the Indian Political circles as well as the normal human being's life in India. This flutter has been due to the "Subsidy" involved in the overall scheme of Cooking Gas supply.  I saw the advertisements as well as the message from the Prime Minister of India issued to the Residents / Citizens of India to give up the subsidy to help ensure that those households that still use the Cooking oil or wood or charcoal get benefited with the supply of Subsidized Cooking Gas.

Now, here the Prime Minister, his advisers and the entire team working on this campaign has failed miserably to do their research first and then start this campaign.  If they ever wanted this to be a 100% success, they should have started from taking the measure from their level.  The step 1 must have been taken at the canteens in the Parliament and the Ministerial offices. When you expect the masses to join the campaign to make it a success, the representatives of the masses need to act first.

The MPs, the MLAs, the Ministers and the Senior Government Officials should be the first one to give up the subsidy.  They are supposed to be the Super influential cadre who certainly do not need the subsidy whether at work or at home.

The big question that certainly is making round in the social media is - Why should I give up subsidy when the Super Influential Cadre doesn't do that? and certainly that is a question that must be answered by the Campaign planners.

If our "Leaders" do not want to lead an effort by expect us to still fall in line, then I am certainly NOT with them to this effect and I would certainly not support the agenda or the campaign.

Dear Prime Minister, if you want us to walk the path you show us, then ensure that the Law makers of the country are marching ahead of us.

Mysterious Death of Indian Nuclear Scientists

Starting from 1966 to date, several Indian Nuclear scientists have been reported to be dead under mysterious circumstances.  This includes the father of Indian Nuclear Program Dr. Homi Jehangir Bhabha.  Dr. Bhabha is said to have died in an air crash near Mt Blanc in Swiss Alps, but incidentally no debris of it were ever found in last almost 50 years. Incidentally, he died just after declaring publicly that India could produce a nuclear device in a short span of time. Some conspiracy theories point towards CIA sabotage. Truth is at large in this case.

The case got more attention off recently with more mysterious deaths between 2009 and 2013 not reported by the mainstream media in India.  the list goes like - 

  • June 15, 2009 - Lokanathan Mahalingam from Kaiga Atomic Power Station
  • December 30, 2009 - Umang Singh and partha Pratim Bag - Bhabha Atomic Research Center 
  • February 23, 2010 - M Iyer - Bhabha Atomic Research Center
  • April 2011 - Uma Rao - Associated with Bhabha Atomic Research Center
  • 2012 - Mohammad Mustafa - Indiara Gandhi Center of Atomic Research
  • October 2013 - KK Joshi and Abhish Shivam - Engineers on indigenious nuclear poered submarine - INS Arihant
  • Undated - Ravi Mule - Nuclear Power Corporation India Ltd.
  • March 3, (year unknown) - Titus Pal - Bhabha Atomic Research Center
  • Undated - Dalia Nayek - Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics
There were another cases of reported suicides including 5 from Bhabha Atomic Research Center - Avdesh Chandra (2000), Ashutosh Sharma and Soumik Chowdhary (2010), Akshay P Chavan (2010) and Subhash Sonawane (2010) - All mysterious cases of suicide or as reported suicide..

When I started reviewing each case individually, what came to my attention is the lethargic investigation by the cops and the luke-worm or no coverage by the prestitude media on these cases.  Certainly these cases of mysterious deaths and suicides should be followed up by a rigorous investigation by the cops and should ring an alarming bell for the government.  If we would keep losing our scientists at such rate, we may end up losing the race without knowing the real cause of their deaths.  It may even push other scientists to move away from countries prestigious and self sustained Nuclear Science program creating a dearth of skills in that arena.

Though I expect very less from the Prestitude Media of India as they wouldn't find this as a selling news and they would prefer to not cover this as a front-line news.  They would prefer to be engaged in Yellow Journalism highlighting the State Convicts as the Wronged hero and giving cover to their story as it sells!!!!

But the readers of this blog and others from where this is sourced need to be more active through Social Media and press for thorough investigation in each such death!!!

Secularism in India = Minority Appeasement

Time and again at various discussions, I have said as well as maintained that Secularism in India applies only to the Hindus. The history of "Secular India" highlights that the entire tactic of Secularism is nothing but Suppressing the Hindus and appease the Minority community.  Interesting point is that it is only in India that we witness the grants and subsidy for pilgrimage of minority community.  No where in the world other than India does it happen.  Isn't that a BIG evidence of minority appeasement?

It is very interesting to see that how these Secular NGOs and Individuals hoard together to shout against the atrocities on the minority community.  I am actually surprised at the whole Secularist Drama that unfolds every time there is someone convicted and is from Minority community.  Be it Ajmal, or the Professor from Delhi or the Latest Edition - Yakub Memon.

The way the Drama has unfold for the Delhi Professor and the Politics that was played then was well understood for it was Congress regime and Congress is well known for its Pseudo Secular face.  When we look at the present case of Yakub Memon, there was a lot of melodrama that unfolded in recent days. A lot of pleas and petitions were filed by those Pseudo Seculars.  They even went on to have the session of Supreme Court set at wee hours of the morning.  What were these Peudo Seculars trying to prove? What did they achieve?

Weren't these Pseudo Seculars aware that he is a culprit of humanity? Why did these Pseudo Seculars state that he was lured by CBI to come back to India and hence he should not be hanged? Don't these Pseudo Seculars realize that he was lured by Not so Seculars on the name of revenge and jehad and that he himself willingly walked into their trap??

Certainly these Pseudo Seculars want to ensure that their Shops and Political Establishments keep on with Business and that their money wheel to keep churning enough for them to create unnecessary disturbances in the national politics and communal (dis)harmony.  

My open questions to the likes of Prashant Bhushan - 
  1. Did you ever wake up at 2 in the night to go and check on the victims of terror attack?  
  2. Did you ever walk in to the house of that Constable who was injured in a terror attack? 
  3. Where were you when those terrorists attacked the Dinanagar Police Station in Gurdaspur? (oops I should have skipped this question as the answer is obvious "Busy preparing for saving Yakub)
I am sure there wouldn't be enough for them to explain as they would surely say "It is NOT a case that matters to Humanitarian cause!!!! It is a terrorist attack and matter for government to solve." Yeah why not These people would get up to shout the slogans only when one of those terrorist would be caught and sentenced to be hanged. Their money making NGOs would get the money churning case!!!

Government should seriously look at the way the Monetary Transactions would have moved for these Pseudo Seculars and ther NGOs during this period of time that the Pseudo Seculars were moving all the strategies to save Yakub.  There is a lot of stinking Hawala smell in this case!!!

Also, With All Due Regards to The Actor from Minority Community, I wouldn't be surprised to hear from someone that he got Convicted because of his name and religion and he didn't mow his car on those pavement dwellers!!! I have already heard some of these for Yakub linking his punishment to his religion and not his deed...and some even went to state that they would prepare for Jihad!!!

My serious request to all the sane and true seculars - get things straight and make them understand that clap sound comes only when to hands meet with certain force.....and for India to be Secular, efforts from all the corners would need to be made.....appeasement is actually more communal than being secular!!!!

July 27 Another Fateful Day

Just as we the Indians woke up in our country, we were greeted with another horrifying news of yet another terror attack in just another city of India. But this time again we can't just sit relax and accept it as Just Another Attack. You must be thinking WHY not. So consider the following equations -
  • Yesterday on July 26 we celebrated Vijay Diwas to commemorate our victory in Kargil. 
  • Pakistan has time and again failed to break Kashmir away from India
  • Infiltration through LOC in J&K has become increasingly tough
  • This is the time of the year when infiltration has to happen per terrorist masterminds as another couple of months and it would be tough to infiltrate. This would mean another few months of wait.
  • So considering the above points, it so seems that the terrorist masterminds chose a porous border of Punjab. Why?Well Punjab as a state had become complacent of its action against Terrorist and everyone around thought terrorism wouldn't return.

Another aspect, what I feel would have played out in this case is of the overall disturbance they would want to create in our country so that they are able to revive the terrorism in our Country.

Now looking at the case, it would be highly suggestible to not just put the security forces of country on High Alert, but to ensure that the borders are sealed and that the attempts to infiltrate are foiled.  At this time, it is speculated that the group at Dinapur, Gurdaspur is part of a larger infiltration attempt that was successful some 25 days or a month back.  If so, then it is important to ensure that the group is or at least 1 from this group is caught Alive.  Though just now when I heard that Government has instructed the security forces to catch them live, I felt disgusted, yeah Ajmal's case played in my mind.  But. consider how critical it would be to know their plans and how critical it would be to ensure that the larger group is traced and neutralized as soon as possible.

The government needs to also ensure that the entire western border as well as the border with Nepal and Bangladesh is monitored as there have been cases where the terrorists have either infiltrated through those countries our fled through those countries.  Not that those countries are directly involved, but the borders with those countries are too porous for an easy infiltration.  

At this time, with the Gurdaspur Attack, I would be wary of the intentions of those handlers in Pakistan and try to push more and more terrorists in India and the other states that may witness similar situations would be Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Specifically talking about the Rajasthan and Gujarat, then the Government needs to note that the two states are active routes for the Drug Peddlers and illegal trade to & from Pakistan.  And well if you are thinking that these peddlers would support terrorism, then yes you are right as the peddlers would do anything for that extra money. As is these peddlers are pretty much engaged in human trafficking too.

So, at this time we need to take a few lessons home from National Security Perspective and ensure that every step is taken to curb the illegal traffic between India and Pakistan. 

Also, there is another important lesson that needs to be learned and that is for those Media Companies and Journalists. It would be better if they would not show any feed live or delayed irrespective of the situation.  The terrorist handlers sitting on the other side of the border are not idiots enough to not extrapolate the incidental situation for another 10 or 15 minutes.  The delayed feeds  depict the position of the security forces and the formation that can be well used to extrapolate the things.  Media Houses need to be behave responsible and should not just try to raise their TRP for such reporting.

भारत का कटु सत्य

आज कुछ सन्देश मिला और उस सन्देश को पढ़ मन भारी सा हुआ। सन्देश के पड़ते हुए मेरी अपनी सोच को बल मिला जिसके अनुसार मैंने पहले कभी कहा था की भारत में धर्मनिरपेक्षता केवल हिंदुओं पर लागू होती है। धर्मनिरपेक्षता के नाम पर हिदुत्व का शोषण होता है। अगर भारतीय राजनीतिक गलियारों में झाँक कर देखेंगे तो आप भी पाएंगे कि भारत वाकई में। धर्मनिरपेक्ष राष्ट्र नहीं है क्योंकि धर्मनिरपेक्षता के नाम पर सारी पाबंदियां केवल हिंदुओं पर लगती है। अभी पिछले दिनों दिल्ली में जो पुलिस वालों को मारा वहीं अगर धर्म बदल दिए जाते तो क्या होता?? दंगे होते और दिल्ली जलता

मैने किसी मुस्लिम को होली दीवाली की पार्टी देते नहीं देखा है, पर हिन्दुओं को इफ्तार पार्टी देते देखा है |

मैने कश्मीर में भारत के झंडे जलते देखे है, पर कभी पाकिस्तान का झंडा जलाते हुए मुसलमान नहीं देखा है |

मैने हिन्दुओं को टोपी पहने मजारो पर जाते देखा है, पर किसी मुस्लिम को टिका लगाते मंदिर जाते नहीं देखा है |

मैने ISIS का विरोध करते किसी मुस्लिम को नहीं देखा है, पर RSS का विरोध करते हुए लाखो हिन्दू देखे है |

मेने हिन्दूओ को भगवान पर जोक्स बनाते देखा हे पर
मुस्लिमो को अल्लाह पर चुटकले बनाते नही देखा।

मैने मिडिया को विदेशो के गुण गाते देखा है, पर भारत के संस्कार के प्रचार करते नहीं देखा है |

मैने करोड़पतियों के माँ बाप को वर्द्धा आश्रम में देखा है, पर किसी करोड़पति के घर में अनाथ आश्रम नहीं देखा है | 

मैने साई के दरबार में लाखो चढ़ावे देखे है, पर साई के दरबार वालो को कभी गरीबो की भलाई करते नहीं देखा है |

मैने विदेशी गाडियो में विदेशी कुत्तो को घूमते देखा है, पर उनके घर के बाहर कभी गाय को रोटी खिलाते नहीं देखा है

अपना देश समाज बचाओ,

इन्डियन नहीं भारतीय बनो
