India is facing cross-border terrorism in J &K  due to proxy war  by ISI- trained fidayeens. 

As always, India refuses to be aggressive. It is reactive ( Mooh-tor jawaab ) not, pro-active. Our soldiers are being martyred, but the government remains on the backfoot.There is a need to re-visit India’s Pakistan policy.

It is time to turn the heat on Baluchistan and help its liberation. Let India engage with Afghanistan, Iran and even Israel as strategic partners. This will divert Pakistan from its evil designs on Kashmir.

China would not risk joining the fray for safeguarding its heavy investments in India.

Let India move forward or else, continue to suffer stoically.

Vrindaban Widows

Breaking taboos, celebrating Holi by Vrindaban widows, is a path breaking event.

A peaceful and subtle sociological revolution seems to be taking place, pregnant with many possibilities..

Females' entry into sanctum sanctorum of hindu temples , could be around the corner, despite stiff opposition by the self-proclaimed thekedars of Sanatan Dharma.

May be Bhumata Brigade's attempt at entering the prohibited inner sanctum of the Shani Shingnapur temple, could succeed, if, wisdom dawns on high priests.

Indian muslim women might feel motivated to assert their right to enter dargahs like the Haji Ali's stand the scrutiny before the Court of law. The law makers are expected to take the initiatives to remove the anomaly in the context of the doctrine of "Right to Equality before the Law ".

Jat Reservation

Jat reservation violence, JNU anti-national violence, Fidayeens’ attacks in Kashmir, political rhetorics , PM’s  non-stop tours , sermons, quota-based politics, cynicism, scepticism, distrust, mistrust

I am confused about patriotism,  anti- nationalism , or just being anti- establishment.

Am I blessed to be a proud Indian ? 

I am on way to renouncing nationalism and all its symbols:  flags, pledges of allegiance, anthem.

I want to be a citizen of the World.

The on-going Jat agitation in Haryana is bound to escalate to other states. Reminiscent of Mandal violence.

Having acquired wealth during the Green Revolution and political power through elections, the OBCs demanded more share in country’s administrative apparatus, especially in higher rungs of bureaucracy..

The Machiavellian V P Singh accepted Mandal Commision's recommendations to gain primacy in politics but at cost of country's unity.

Now, the Jat Mahasabha wants reservation out of 27% OBC quota..

The Gurjars are also demanding privileged treatment.

Both, OBC and Jat communities are affluent, educationally and socially more advanced.than many general categories.

Reservations kill the notion of meritocracy.

They bring inefficiency and mediocrity.

They promote further casteism.

Why can't poverty be the sole criteria for reservation ?

FOR HOW LONG WILL INDIA CONTINUE WITH RESERVATION BASED ON ENDOGAMIC SOCIAL GROUPS IN THE GARB OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION ?

One is not clear about the guiding principle  of "Liberalistion of  legal Profession in preference to its commercialisation ",as stated in the article.

The profession is purely commercial-- providing legal services for a price,not pro bono.

What will be the actual impact on indian lawyers in concrete terms ?This needs to be clarified.

Also, will the cost of litigation in India go up with the entry of foreign Law firms ?What will be the gain to them ?

I take it that the foreign firms will engage indian lawyers and pay them for services.

Why did the BCI oppose the move in the past ?

In 2010 (UPA-II) a consortium of 17 banks led by SBI, lent Rs 7,000 crores to Vijay Mallya ostensibly to overcome financial crisis. The banks have been able to recover only a fraction. Rest is waiting to be written off as bad debt. All at cost of tax payers.

Self-respecting farmers unable to repay loans, are committing suicides. The filthy-rich hate to commit suicides as they can manage by manipulating. It is an open secret that loan was granted on orders from the high and mighty in Delhi, bypssing the standard operating procedures. No safeguards.

The CMDs and Boards members who sanctioned the loan, have not even been show-caused, let alone arrested. All were rewarded with post-retirement placements by UPA-II .

Vijay Mallya, the king of Good Times is privy to all those who helped him.

He has photographic and other documentary evidences confirming lavish hospitality enjoyed by the politicos, bureaucrats, bankers, the journos and other high and mighty of the Congress party.

Arrest Vijay Mallya and his son immediately.

Truth will come out in no time.

Why is Modi sarkar scared to initiate action ?

Degenerating into UPA-III, perhaps.

Topics on Ethics, Vigilance, Anti- Corruption, CBI,CVC etc will now be added to universities curricula.

Objective as vague as the scheme:--

.Creating awareness about corruption.

Character building (of JNU like super heroes and their teachers)

Though well-intentioned, will this help in realising the stated objectives ?

If corruption could be removed this way, teachers and babus as warehouses of knowledge, would have been the most honest.

But, are they ? Hon'ble exceptions apart ?

Unintended benefits will accrue to civil services aspirants,alone in preparing for exams.

Corruption will re-appear with vengeance in new avtaars and with new players, better equipped to break rules and stay honest.

Anti- graft agencies are here forever.

When PM Modi said that the Indian muslims could not fall prey to the jehadis, he was spot on.Reasons are not far to seek? A majority of Indian muslims follow Sufi – strain of Islam. They worship Nizamuddin Aulia and Moinuddin Chishti ,who are  revered in equal measure by the hindus. All are grounded in India’s history of harmony, tolerance, mysticism and diversity.india is a land of paradoxes.Modi is  well-intentioned. His honesty, integrity , sense  of nationalism and patriotism  cannot be questioned. The key to his success , however, is not to prioritize what he has on schedule but in scheduling his priorities.

Raising incendiary slogans against India, supporting Kashmiri azaadi , eulogising terrorist Afzal Guru as a martyr, by groups of left wing students of JNU is reprehensible. We normally hear such provocative slogans as part of post-Friday-prayers ritual in Srinagar. Never, in Delhi. JNU is not a "disputed" territory. It never had a history of raising slogans like: “Kashmir ki Azaadi tak jung rahegi, jung rahegi”. Undoubtedly, the right to “ Freedom of Speech”,was misused and abused. The ubiquitous posters pasted across JNU campus inviting others to join the protest march against the "judicial killing of Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhatt”. It is a fashion in JNU campus to inflame passions by making provocative slogans to incite fellow students. One hopes, invoking Section 124-A of IPC (sedition) in FIR by Delhi Police stands the scrutiny in court of law. Attempts will be made ( with covert support of some political parties ) to get the FIR quashed. Be that as it may, India cannot remain a mute bystander. All this seems part of a larger conspiracy hatched by enemies within, with secret support of the ISI and its moles. The crisis may escalate. The sensitive spots must remain under IB’s scanner leaving no room for complacency. The Media ( both Print and TV) must act responsibly and refrain from giving undue publicity to the traitors who are responsible for the mess.
