None, in my view. 

The Congress is terminally ill. The power-hungry Nehru-Gandhi dynasty and its loose cannons , are the root cause of party’s slow death. 

Being out of touch with the ground realities, the party has lost its relevance and usefulness. Lack of inner-party democracy, most vicious during Indira Gandhi’s times, promoted cult worship, stifling the voice of reason and sanity.The trend continues, till date. Only, characters have changed endowed with zero intellectual maturity 

The crooked veterans in the Congress are spineless slaves, devoid of self esteem. Revolving around the fulcrum and maintaining their seesaw balances. They vie with each other in keeping the self- proclaimed Supremo happy. The leadership , has neither the concern nor  

understanding of country’s problems. It draws strength from ill-gotten wealth stashed in tax havens abroad. 

Sudden emergence of anti- dynasty movement in the Congress could save the party from itself. Even the chances of such an eventuality, are nil. So strong is the mafia-like stranglehold. A majority of Congi veterans involved in UPA scams, may be paying the price of their sins.  

Performance or non -performance by ruling dispensations in States, should not be ignored.This could have negative  or positive impact on one party or the other.

Anti-incumbency factor arising out of corruption and non-performance , could kill any political party.and strengthen the hands of  its enemies. Public is watchful. Parties like the SP, BSP, RJD,AAP etc could meet the same fate as the Congress due to their corrupt practices. 

Such cases need close monitoring. Investigations, prosecution and convictions have to be followed up in the interest of speedy criminal justice administration. 

In sum, the situation is hopeless. The Congress is at the cross roads. No one can help in its revival,let alone, Rahul Gandhi’s boring address at the Berkeley.

Class-3 student slapped 40 times by teacher in Lucknow,UP

" Peer slap bet " in a Noida school

Rapes with girl students in schools are normal

Many more skeletons may tumble out in times to come.

We have become accustomed and insensitive to such mishaps

Why not have a separate and independent Union Minister for SCHOOL EDUCATION for focussed attention ?

And, a separate, independent Union Minister for HIGHER EDUCATION,

Sack officials of CBSE , UGC and other regulatory bodies and their counterparts in States particularly the District Magistrates for dereliction of duties 

Stringent punishment for all including the Police.

Best to appoint Academician- turned -Administrators as Ministers.

Never, the politicians.

Let PM Modi lead by examples by starting from Central government and the BJP-ruled States.

Kanchi Sankaracharya :-- " All hindu Gods are criminals? "

Kanchi Sankaracharya tapes released by Republic TV are brazenly shameful.

Worshipped by politicians,top bureaucrats,business houses builders etc, no one can vouch for the credentials of the Hindu demi-gods.

All have dangerous connections with killer mafias.

I had posted names of 14 fraud babas in my post.

There are many more whose details have not been released by 

Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad.

All allegedly given clean chits as a quid pro quo..

Grigory Rasputins of India.

Dhirendra Brahmcharya ( He had a huge cashe of arms and a helipad at Rishikesh ) Chandra Swami ( St Kitt’s etc.

All allegedly had/have criminal antecedents Where is the room full of gold,diamonds, cash etc allegedly siphoned off in trucks from the abode of a "saint" in Bengaluru after his demise?

Stalking case of a top bureaucrat’s daughter by the wayward son of BJP chief of  Haryana, and his accomplice ,is appalling. Media reports that BJP chief’s nephew is also involved in yet another case of heinous crime of sexual misconduct.A family trait.

The stalkers was first arrested, then let off on bail by the Police. Strangely, the non-bailable charge of stalking initially included in FIR,was later deleted. Being  law graduates, the culprits were familiar with gravity of the offence and accordingly activated their political contacts. 

Now in police custody, they have admitted to having committed the crime. The non-bailable charge of attempting to abduct under section 365 of the IPC and section 511 relating to attempt to commit an offence punishable with life or other imprisonment, has  been pressed against the duo.

Let the law take its course.

The worrisome feature is,if, this is the fate of a top bureaucrat’s daughter, how safe would be those poor, helpless girls with no clout and who are less fortunately circumstanced?

The police machinary is same everywhere.Corrupt, pliable, ever ready to oblige the political class.In the present , ends of justice would be met if a judicial inquiry is ordered into the conduct of Police-politicians nexus. Can’t expect anything from  politicians. They consider themselves above the law.

The aggrieved girl deserves appreciation for going public in exposing the culprits. The Media must be congratulated for performing a yeoman service for fighting against VVIP culture of the political class.

The Ramp Show by IAS officers’ of 2015 batch, designated as Assistant Secretaries to GOI, at New Delhi’s India Gate has, on Sunday evening , Sept 10, 2017 ,dented the image of bureaucracy in India. Preposterous.

How will the pageant  help in bringing Good governance ?

How did DOP&T permit this extravaganza at tax-payers’ cost?

How much was spent on event managers to prepare the un-initiated IAS officers in boastful display of their talent.

Was it a part of their curricula?

Wrong signals generated for all particularly for the non-IAS biradri.

Absolute Non-application of mind by decision makers of  elite bureaucrats in GOI.

Who built Delhi's Chhatarpur temple ,immediately after raiding Maharani Gayatri devi fort ?

Can anyone explain the lavish life-styles of all Sankaracharyas and their sources of incomes.?

The Congress,BJP, DMK,AIADMK and others have a lot to explain

Does the Hinduism not need ethnic cleansing and reforms to restore its pristine glory.

Till, then, I hang my head in shame.

20 Joint Secretaries in Union Ministry of Home Affairs  have been delegated  substantial financial and administrative powers in matters of executing works , land purchases upto Rs 50 crores, full powers incurring administrative expenses, hiring accommodation, TA, LTC and related cases in the ministry.

A prudent step to responsibilise the army of JSs in MHA.

The decision must be replicated in all union ministries.

An effective mechanism of checks and balances by way of submitting monthly returns to respective Financial Advisors and union Secretaries must be evolved.

Now is the time to abolish posts of Special Secretaries and Addl Secretaries in GOI in a phased manner as these would become redundant.

This will result in huge savings in expenditure from public exchequer.

Let the State governments follow suit.

Give a good buy to top heavy structure of bureaucracy at the Centre and the States.

The US is justifiably miffed by North Korea’s policy of nuclear brinkmanship and for issuing daily threats of nuclear attack. The US is in a bind.The impasse should not be allowed to last long. 

North Korea’s sixth nuclear test is a slap on US’s face besides sending wrong signals to China and Russia. Pakistan’s clandestine transfer of nuclear technology to N Korea went unpunished.The US is now paying the price of its own folly. 

Condemning N Korea’s testing of nuclear fusion device and ICBM by China and Russia , is a charade. Both double crossing the US . The ground reality is just the opposite. No neighbouring country, especially China would be comfortable with a nuclearised Korean peninsula. 

Against the background of all-round misrust, China’s advice to the US for direct talk with a rogue nation , is simply laughable. 

Should the superpower agree to one-on- one talk with a belligerant country like N Korea. Does N Korea deserve the courtesy of appeasement by the US ? 

Economic sanctions against N Korea, have been half-hearted. Military sanctions with conventional weapons, could cause disastrous backlash to South Korea located just 50 Km away from its belligerant neighbour. 

South Korea will be annihilated. It depends on who carries out the pre-emptive strike.

 Direct talks between two un-equals, the US and N Korea, if ever conducted, will continue upto infinity with zero outcome.This will instead embolden N Korea to keep provoking its adversary,the most powerful nation in the world. 

What is President Trump’s “fire and fury” counter- warning  to North Korea ? Does he mean first strike with conventional weapons or a nuclear attack ? 

North Korea’s military dictator Kim Jong, by his incessant threats , is almost begging for a War with the US. He can’t hold the World as hostage. 

Enough is enough.It is now time for the US to take direct action .Let it pull out all full stops. 

This will help the suppressed people of North Korea and restore democracy. 

Kim Jong deserves the same fate as Saddam Hussain, Gaddafi and Osama bin Laden, former Al Qaeda chief. 

The US with its much advanced technology, capability and intelligence inputs, should know better.
