Dr Sarma Hits Back

I do not agree with the example of Father, because, the father has a compulsion to remain a father, but,it is high time that this stupid father should tell the grand mother that he does not want to be father any more and to find another scape goat. Unfortunately, grand mother is unable to find a reliable goat, because, the other bearded persons might turn out like Kalmadis and might suck more and give less milk. That is perhaps the beauty of honesty.

What has been done can not be undone. It was rabbit preferred to sleep comfortably thinking that the tortoise will never be able reach the destination and the rabbit will get up and make up the gap by its speed. But it awoke and found the tortoise already reached the destination and accepted the defeat to the slow but steady animal.

Our respected Prime Minister of India is now on back foot. He had to accede to the demand for JPC after clearance from the Congress think-tank. Better late than never. In doing so, the ruling UPA accepted prima-facie the legitimacy of the demand of the opposition for Joint Parliamentary Probe against corruption in high places. The probe is expected to cover both NDA and UPA regimes and to come out with valid recommendations and directions to root out the corruption and dishonest practices by misusing executive powers.

It would, however, be disgusting if the opposition attempts to use the platform of JPC only to insult a gentleman like Dr. Monmohan Singh in order to meet its political interest leaving the major issues to include fixing of responsibility of the real culprits and thieves. The JPC should come out with the recommendations of exemplary punishments.

It is agreed if any wrong committed by any member of a family, the father can not escape moral responsibility despite his personal honesty. Yet no sensible person can award punishment to the father just because he is the head of the family. If he becomes the major focus or is crucified it would tantamount to suppress the guilt of the real culprits. I hope the parties achieved JPC will not send wrong message to the citizens of this country.

Money Bags

"घोटाले  का पैसा ! 
आदर्श हो या स्पेक्ट्रम टु-जी
राजा हो या चवान  जी 
चुप रहे क्यूँ मनमोहनजी 
काले नाणे को वापस लाओजी
राजीनामा देकर मत छूटोजी !
निचे लिखी कहानी सब पढ़ोजी    

Indians are poor but INDIA is not a poor country". Says one of the Swiss bank directors. He says that "280 lac crore" of Indian money is deposited in Swiss banks which can be used for 'tax less' budget for 30 yrs. Can give 60 crore jobs to all Indians. From any village to Delhi 4 lane roads. Forever free power supply to more than 500 social projects. Every citizen can get monthly 2000/- for 60 yrs. No need of World Bank & IMF loan. Think how our money is blocked by rich and corrupt politicians. The country has full right to know he detail about the beneficiaries."

 Also few lines:
Today our prime minister Dr. Singh inspired the IAS probationaries to be honest and kind towards the poor and tribal Indians. He informed the corrupt people are depriving the poorest of the poor from their basic needs. He asked not to compromise with the corrupt people in social life and administration. Perhaps, our learned and old prime minister has forgotten that the snakes should not be trusted, they bite even to the charmers. He should have considered to wind up those service cadres and replace them with technocrats to head the ministries, departments and statutory bodies in order to bring transparency and deliver desired results. The proposed changes in the system may bring positive changes to minimise corruption.

Dr Sarma reacts:

I wish Dr Singh read your note 5 years back, because, once he is in a trap, it is difficult, nay impossible, for him to take himself out from the Gang of gangsters.

Dr Singh is always given credit for rejuvenating Indian economy as the Finance Minister in the ninetees, but, I always thought that it was Narasimha Rao's idea. Rao was a learned person as he knew so many languages. He had the wisdom and used Dr Singh to fulfil his good wisdom as someone is now using him for her evil designed wisdom. If Dr Singh had any wisdom, he would not have accepted the PM's post at all.


I am sorry to say that Dr Singh should now say goodbye to the chair of the prime minister of India and return to the class room to the benefit of the students. Let him live as a teacher till his last breath. India is a dangerous country where even the prime minister is disobeyed. In each scam, it is found that vested interest gets free pass to make money despite the country's security and sovereignty is threatened. It seems that the country is not run by one powerful man like prime minister. There are several power blocks those who can do or undo many things. Dr Singh is a blessing to the country. But he is not able to set things in order despite his honesty and disapproval to many wrongs like 2G spectrum or S-Band outsourcing controversy. Other people are making huge money in illegal way, but the prime minister is being blamed. There are ghosts in the oil seeds. Either he  makes those people accountable and initiate exemplary action to deter those intend to make similar activities and earn confidence of his fans or he should organise his farewell party.

On "Hindu Terrorism"

By Francois Gautier
Is there such a thing as 'Hindu terrorism,' as the arrest of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur for the Malegaon blasts may tend to prove? Well, I guess I was asked to write this column because I am one of that rare breed of foreign correspondents — a lover of Hindus! A born Frenchman, Catholic-educated and non-Hindu, I do hope I'll be given some credit for my opinions, which are not the product of my parents' ideas, my education or my atavism, but garnered from 25 years of reporting in South Asia (for Le Journal de Geneve and Le Figaro).
In the early 1980s, when I started freelancing in south India, doing photo features on Kalaripayattu, the Ayyappa festival, or the Ayyanars, I slowly realised that the genius of this country lies in its Hindu ethos, in the true spirituality behind Hinduism. The average Hindu you meet in a million villages possesses this simple, innate spirituality and accepts your diversity, whether you are Christian or Muslim, Jain or Arab, French or Chinese. It is this Hinduness that makes the Indian Christian different from, say, a French Christian, or the Indian Muslim unlike a Saudi Muslim. I also learnt that Hindus not only believed that the divine could manifest itself at different times, under different names, using different scriptures (not to mention the wonderful avatar concept, the perfect answer to 21st century religious strife) but that they had also given refuge to persecuted minorities from across the world—Syrian Christians, Parsis, Jews, Armenians, and today, Tibetans.

In 3,500 years of existence, Hindus have never militarily invaded another country, never tried to impose their religion on others by force or induced conversions. You cannot find anybody less fundamentalist than a Hindu in the world and it saddens me when I see the Indian and western press equating terrorist groups like SIMI, which blow up innocent civilians, with ordinary, angry Hindus who burn churches without killing anybody. We know also that most of these communal incidents often involve persons from the same groups—often Dalits and tribals—some of who have converted to Christianity and others not. However reprehensible the destruction of Babri Masjid, no Muslim was killed in the process; compare this to the 'vengeance' bombings of 1993 in Bombay, which wiped out hundreds of innocents, mostly Hindus. Yet the Babri Masjid destruction is often described by journalists as the more horrible act of the two. We also remember how Sharad Pawar, when he was chief minister of Maharashtra in 1993, lied about a bomb that was supposed to have gone off in a Muslim locality of Bombay.

I have never been politically correct, but have always written what I have discovered while reporting. Let me then be straightforward about this so-called Hindu terror. Hindus, since the first Arab invasions, have been at the receiving end of terrorism, whether it was by Timur, who killed 1,00,000 Hindus in a single day in 1399, or by the Portuguese Inquisition which crucified Brahmins in Goa. Today, Hindus are still being targeted: there were one million Hindus in the Kashmir valley in 1900; only a few hundred remain, the rest having fled in terror. Blasts after blasts have killedhundreds of innocent Hindus all over India in the last four years. Hindus, the overwhelming majority community of this country, are being made fun of, are despised, are deprived of the most basic facilities for one of their most sacred pilgrimages in Amarnath while their government heavily sponsors the Haj. They see their brothers and sisters converted to Christianity through inducements and financial traps, see a harmless 84-year-old swami and a sadhvi brutally murdered. Their gods are blasphemed. So sometimes, enough is enough.

At some point, after years or even centuries of submitting like sheep to slaughter, Hindus—whom the Mahatma once gently called cowards—erupt in uncontrolled fury. And it hurts badly. It happened in Gujarat. It happened in Jammu, then in Kandhamal, Mangalore, and Malegaon. It may happen again elsewhere. What should be understood is that this is a spontaneous revolution on the ground, by ordinary Hindus, without any planning from the political leadership. Therefore, the BJP, instead of acting embarrassed, should not disown those who choose other means to let their anguished voices be heard.

There are about a billion Hindus, one in every six persons on this planet. They form one of the most successful, law-abiding and integrated communities in the world today. Can you call them terrorists?

The Prime Minister Acts in 2G Spectrum Scam:

                           CVC Disposed of 804 Cases in December 2010 Major
                 Penalty Proceedings Recommended against  226 Officers

The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) disposed of 804 cases during December 2010 referred to it for advice. Of these, 667 complaints were  sent for necessary action/ATR whereas 48 complaints were sent for  investigation and report. No action was required on 123 complaints.

The Commission advised imposition of major penalty against 226 officers including 50 from Department of Communications, 36 from Central Board of Excise & Customs, 23 from Ministry of Railways, 13  from State Bank of India, 10 from Vijaya Bank, 9 from Punjab & Sind Bank, 8 from M.C.D., 7 from Andhra Bank, 6 from Canara Bank, 5 each from Allahabad Bank, Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd.& UCO Bank. Remaining 31 cases pertained to different departments of the Government of India and PSUs.

Recoveries to the tune of about Rs.2.78 crore were effected after Commission conducted technical examination of some departments.
 My View:
......Therefore JPC or destabilising Parliament is not the only answer. Will the so called opposition allow the Dr Singh to function as a Prime Minister of India? His critics may now refrain from dishonouring Dr Singh.
