A Truckload vs 2 small coins

@PTI
@NDTV
@Mirror Now


The #mundraport, #adani owned, was found with 3000 Kg of #drugs.

We find the nation going Hammer-and-Tongs behind somebody whose name is #Khan, whereas No drugs were found on him, 10 gms found with those who were with him.
The modern 1 rupee coin of India weighs 4.85 gms, call it 5. Take 2 of those. …The usual Trucks of India carry 3000 Kgs. So 2 small 1 rupee coins are getting More attention than a Whole Truck-load, bec ‘that’ name is #adani, #modi’s friend.


That is our Indian #media.
And the #judiciary is happy receiving its Fat salaries and perks, and worrying about its pensions.

Re y’day’ s TV interview on @ndtv bet @srinivasan n @Kanhaiya.

@srinivasan criticises the #Congress, viz, #NoVision, #NoLeadership n #Fragmented.

For all his seniority, @srinvasan is like a XIIth class boy. He has missed the Forest for the Trees.

@Congress has been Bad.

Congress has also erred in Not meeting #AmrinderSingh, now ex cm of punjab.

*

@bjp IS Bad, in its very Nature.

@Congress n esplly @Rajiv have Improved; whereas in its 7 yrs, @bjp has only gone from Bad to Worse, n No Sane mind would believe @bjp would give up its #Violent, #Rowdy, #AntiDemocratic mindset.

Democratic ideals, Protests, put down with state sponsored terrorism; #bjp’s greatest negative.

Hv called @srinivasan a class XII boy bec he chooses to kneel to the #bjp, whatever the reasons. He shames the proud #South. And @ndtv has @RavishKumar, that Gem among #journalists. …Hope @ndtv improves.

Misbehavior an Offence!

I thought #Misbehavior (with Anybody), was an offence. But no. Only Now has it become so. That too Only with #Tourists, so the TV informs me, and that too, Only in Rajasthan! …Ready to #Spit, everybody? Bec I am.


Fellows, Go After those having High security. More Challenging, ofcourse, but More Satisfying too, no?

A Muslim Bangle-Seller

A few days ago a Bangle seller was thrashed by a small crowd of men. Problem: He is a Muslim. Immediately following the incident the TV channels had said that they had demanded to know Why he, a Muslim, had entered a hindu neighbourhood for his sales.Now the Victim has been Arrested by our ‘glorious’ police, on charges made by a 6 yo girl, conveniently called a ‘minor’ (FULL of connotations, You see!), – that he had touched her ‘Inappropriately’ – on the cheek(!), this in India.

They say a ‘6 yo’ girl testified, saying the bangle seller touched her on her cheek in an ‘in’appropriate way. How do You touch a child on her cheek in an ‘in’appropriate way? Eagerly waiting to see how quickly the ‘courts’ see this.

कहा जा रहा है कि चूड़ी वाला उस ‘६’ साल की बच्ची को गालों पर ‘गलत’ तरीके से छुआ. १. ६ साल की बच्ची को गलत और सही ‘टच’ का उतना अच्छा ज्ञान है? २. ६ साल की बच्ची को गाल पर कैसे गलत तरीके से छुआ जा सकता है?…बड़ी उत्सुकता से प्रतीक्षा कर रहा हूँ कि ‘कोर्ट्स’ इस पॉइंट को कितनी जल्दी पकड़ती हैं.

INDIA N THE OLYMPICS, B

This post starts with the Olympics, but Ends with the Erosion of Democracy in India.

It all began thus: In the following graphic it is said that the Sports minister of India had chanted something like Shoot the bughers. …The words are – Goli maaro saalon ko. Goli here means a bullet; and in conjunction with the next word means shoot. A Sala is actually a brother-in-law, but here, as is often, used as a derogatory word.

The meme goes on to say, that the minister, who speaks of bullets, had Failed to supply World Class Guns to the Indian Olympic Shooters, due to which they failed.

This had appeared in Facebook, and I had shared it with the words: Joote maro saalon ko, mimicking the above, and meaning ‘Beat them with Slippers.’

A Google search indeed bears out that the minister had definitely chanted, and as it had been in front of a Mike, had Incited the crowd to violence.

…modi, the bjp in general, and the minister have tried to gain credit for the achievements of India’s Olympians. But the Reality is Very Dirty. …Today I saw, in the social media, that Gold medalist Javelin thrower’s coach, a German, had slammed the Indian gorement of Failing to provide these Athletes with a Proper Diet.

Going back, Facebook and other platforms being Infested with the bjp, my post was taken down, deemed Violent!

A very Union minister of India can chant ‘Shoot them,’ and that is not violent. I, a Common Citizen, saying, in such cases, ‘Beat them with Slippers’ is Violence.

*******

India n the Olympics, A

The Union gorement of India cannot take ANY credit, whereever the Indian Athletes/Sportspersons have done well.

How can they, when they have Cut the Sports-Budget by More than 230 Crores of INR, of course. That is 2.3 Billion.

They choose to spend (see attachment) on something called the Vista, a new home for the prime minister modi.

Created with GIMP

Look at a similar one:

In the meatime, modi eats INR 14,000 meals, and dresses like Akbar. That poor fellow was only an emperor, as against modi who is the pm of a democracy. modi does one better than Akbar, changing (10 Lakh=1Mil) suits FOUR times a day, to Akbar’s Three changes.

The Indian Women’s Hockey team’s captain’s father is a Cart hawker. What meals must this captain, and the team, and other Athletes n Sportspersons be having?

Thus, We cannot prevent modi, the bjp and its ministers crowing. But the credit is Not theirs.

This post of Our Young friend, Rachana, sharing a lot of info from one ‘Premaram,’ speaks about Security arrangements in India.

After the death of a (Girl) Student, and an Acid Attack, the home minister of Haryana, India, had said that it is Not possible to provide security for Each, Individual Citizen.

Now for some Data (as per site):

No of police personnel in India, (at the time of writing, of course), 1.926 Million.

No of Vacancies in police dept: About 500,000.

Excluding police personnel on VIP duty, India has ONE police man/woman per 663 Citizens.

No of VIPs in

Britain: 84,

France: 109,

Japan: 125, etc.

No of VIPs in India, …hold Your breath: 579,092 as of July, 2018.

Now let’s put it under Our hats.

Excellent!

From Riz Akhtar`s post in Facebook.

Modi does not work like this.

If you see the sting video done on Babu Bajrangi from 2002 Gujarat Muslim Genocide, you’ll understand how Modi works. Babu Bajrangi led a mob that killed men, women, children and did not even spare pregnant women. On the sting video he says that he felt like Maharana Pratap as he slit through the stomachs of pregnant women and held unborn fetuses on the tip of his sword. Maybe he was exaggerating but the fact remains that he was convicted in these crimes.

To get him off the hook, Modi kept changing judges in the courts. He assured Babu Bajrangi that he will get him off the hook. Babu Bajrangi speaks about this. The first judge told him that he is now finished. That judge was replaced. Modi kept replacing the judges till he found one who would let Babu Bajrangi off the hook.And that is how Modi operates.

So dear Arnab, now that you have gotten into this mess, give Modi some time. He will find a judge, sooner or later, transfer your case, get the Supreme Court involved in some way or another and then he will get you off the hook. That is a time consuming process. Meanwhile better reconcile to the fact that you are going to spend some good amount of time in the jail. Don’t make a spectacle of yourself. Don’t sully the name of a party that already has seen many Sorryvarkars in its ranks. Don’t cry. You might think that your life is under threat but live with that. Best is to sit in the corner and sulk to yourself.

DG Vanzara and a host of other cops did that for 8 years before they could be got off the hook by a CBI judge who retired the very next day after setting them free. In the meanwhile Vanzara wrote a stinker of a letter that almost got Modi into trouble. Now don’t do that.

Now that you have invited this trouble, give your masters some time. They will get you off the hook but it can’t be blatant. There is a whole state of Maharashtra at stake and you have defaulted on payment to a Marathi Manoos, who committed suicide along with his mother and has named you in the suicide note. Now that note is part of police record. It is not in dispute. Your default is not in dispute. You should have have thought of these consequences when you went hammer and tong against Maharashtra Police and Government. You see, politicians don’t love anybody other than power and themselves. if you thought otherwise then you are the fool.

Courts Invite, and Beg for, Contempt.

*******

The #courts of India BEG for, and INVITE, #Contempt. …I Freely offer it to them.
Many (bjp) ministers are on record, inciting- ‘Goli maro salon ko,’ (Shoot them). This does not prompt action from the courts.
Rape threats are starting to come freely; Dhoni’s daughter, now Vijay Sethupathi. ‘This’ does not disturb our judges.
But WEAK targets like oppn politicos (Kamal Nath), and of the film world (latest… Kangana) – not that I support them, – but, as I was saying, Weak targets are ‘Boldly’ targeted by the courts.

They all seem to think We are still living in the uneducated 1930-40s.
For all that, Changes are not going to come in 2 years; not even in 50, I would say.
But, when it does, these same judges will be literally spat upon, and Driven from their own houses, and have Every photograph of theirs removed from their walls, by their Own Grandchildren. I will not be here on this earth to enjoy that, (am 73).
But the Bally judges Will enjoy, read that as Suffer it, IN their lifetimes. That’s my Curse and Wish.

I saw that the fourth one did not load. Here’s another attempt:

Could not get this ‘Reblogged,’ even after going to Firefox. Doing it by main force, with the following words, shared also on Facebook.

I find this, – particularly referring to the graphic in Anna’s post, – Absolutely Inhuman. In India, they treat the ‘Real’ criminals with TLC (Tender Loving Care),

The man in white is one ‘Dara Singh,’ killer of Pastor Staines AND his family.

and Badly beat up those whom We would call The Innocent.

Above, beaten By the police, Thank You.

Abroad, I have not seen photographs of Carlos, the Drug lord and Mass killer, being treated this way.

My Blogging friend Anna, who is a Lawyer, keeps raising these issues.

These can be stopped Only if a Million voices rise against these.Simpler would be for Religious leaders, like the Pope, the Cardinals, Bishops, the Dalai Lama to speak up. …The Jesuit authorities in India spoke up for Fr. Stan; …for their Own.

Does it not make Your heart ache to see this, as it does mine?
