The problem lies with our #Courts

The problem lies with our #Courts. Do they HAVE to eat Crap when it is offered? …via:

Remember Kapil Baisala, who fired shots at Shaheen Bagh & shouted “hamare desh me sirf hinduon ki chalegi?” [ In effect, means: In this country, Only what hindus say, will matter. ]
He was given bail in March. His lawyer argued that he has “deep roots in society” & that “he has the responsibility of a wife & a minor child.”
Safoora is still in jail.

India Needs this, and India wants this

*******

India Needs this, and India wants this. To be said by #Police and #Military #Chiefs, to #Politicos, #Judges and #Officials.

Houston Police Chief @ArtAcevedo: “Let me just say this to the President of the United States, on behalf of the police chiefs of this country: please, if you don’t have something constructive to say, keep your mouth shut.”

Hats off to the #Miami Police, too. Hope to find ‘MEN’ (मर्द) like them in India, particularly in #UP and #Delhi.

Limping Children, Bleeding Hearts

*******

A Great Nation, announcing packages worth 20 Lakh Crores, supposedly worth 10% of the GDP, (While NONE of earlier ones have been honoured), cannot and will not Care about, Reaching its Labour Force Home.

My heart bleeds looking at these videos of our country.
This one in particular.
Remember for every one video that makes it to Twitter, there will be hundreds more such cases, that do not reach the media.

3 Would be Accidents

*******

Due to Corona, people have been without jobs, and, as such, without much cash. We shall not discuss here that people have not bothered to Save. I estimate that about 40% of Tamilians have the philosophy of: Earn it, Spend it. It burns holes in their pockets to Save.

The ‘gorement’ of India had very kindly ‘ordered’ that employers should pay their employees their salaries in advance, as advance. Too many employers claim that they have done so.

Now, to get businesses going, the owners have to get workers to come, announcing in advance that the workers will not receive salaries for an unspecified amount of time. We can understand this as the products they have generated have not been sold off.

They expect the ‘gorement’ to bail out cash to get them going. Which same,  on the one hand having given out some help ‘packages,’ – and eaten up fat commissions for same, no doubt,

– says, (without saying it aloud), that it too is short of money. Above: People waiting for a gorement prepared meal, which it calls: Over-prepared.

That the central gorement of India has collected unspecified Millions in an account called the ‘pm cares fund,’ has already helped out its cronies, who had showed it the thumb and had even given up Indian citizenship in the process, to the tune of 68,000 Crores. Rupees, of course, and one crore is ten million.

The miserable workers, who are cheated left and right with regard to their salaries, and have to pay their rents in advance, as I suppose is common the world over, decided to go back home, thus the infamous Migrants of India. …Very kindly, all of 0 rupees of the ‘pm cares fund’ have been spent in getting these Migrants home by the gorement.

Above, a young woman with a babe in arms decides to walk more than 1200 kms.

A close up.

 

The central gorement has not seen fit to give the state their share of the taxes. To allay their baying, it has allowed the states to reopen the liquor shops, which bring in no mean money.

And herein starts the tale of Accidents.

I have been taking Walks in the evening. Since the liquor shops opened, Three, not one, not two, but Three bikers nearly dashed onto me.

Food Scarcity and… During Corona times

*******

This article, refers to:

https://wiangga0409.wordpress.com/2020/04/29/the-peril-of-food-scarcity/ …of Wiangga.

In India, Corona has highlighted the plight of the ‘Migrants,’ who constitute part of the Whopping (about) 93% of the population of India, being the ‘Daily Wage Earners.’

Despite Lip service on the part of the centre, not being paid, or taken care of, by way of place to stay and food, etc, the Migrants have preferred to Walk, for the Most part, distances as great as 1,100 Kms, about 675 Miles, with almost No provisions, carrying Infants in Arms.

Above: Resting.

The Toll, visible on faces.

Not allowed to go further, camping under a Bridge.

Migrant who died of Starvation, on the road;

Migrant Dead of starvation, upon being brought to hospital too late.

Tragically, a 12 yo Girl, having walked about a 100 Kms, died of Exhaustion and Hunger 50 Km from her destination. https://www.shethepeople.tv/news/12-year-old-migrant-girl-dies-walking-reach-chhattisgarh

Collecting Spilled grains.

As opposed to all this, instead of helping such poor people, #modi and his gorement have chosen to write off Wilful Defaulter’s loans, to the tune of 68, 607 Crores (roughly 883 x 1,32,788 = 11,52,71,804 Dollars).

And then I read in Wiangga’s post:

The Jakarta Post reported on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, that more farmers from villages help cities ensure food supply during the pandemic. The farmer association in Kulon Progo sent pickup trucks full of vegetables and rice to Yogjakarta to help the poor and those who had lost their income during the pandemic.’

Why didn’t Indian Farmers do that?

Bec too many of them are Busy Committing Suicide.

All hail to chief #modi, and his able assistant, #amitshaw.

India’s CAA, NRC, etc, …Anti Muslim?

*******

My friend Phil, pjwmia.wordpress.com, in response to my post, had written:

“As you know our idiot in charge is apparently currently being “sucked up to” by your yours. We have gotten reports of protests and injuries due to Mr. Modi and his policy that effects Muslim citizenship. Not much is explained but claims of huge crowds greeting the two. Is there a source I can go to on line that might provide more facts and details on the situation both the treatment of Muslims and the great love displayed for Mr. Trump? Any help would be appreciated.”

My belated reply became quite longish. And here it is, for the interested:

***

My Dear Phil, Thank You Very much for that, and DO, DO forgive me for being so late in getting back to You. (A bundle of very real reasons including poor health, my left hand not typing like of old, etc, contribute to this). …Yes, the two Idi*ts, Yours And mine, have become close to each other, and for many reasons. One is ideological; both being followers of Fascism. The second is the Following that they get in this, from their Brainless supporters. Heady wine stuff.

As for the Anti Muslim agenda, it has been in preparation for at least 60 years, I would say, as I recall my Youth. And Absolutely Needless, as India’s Muslims, though they keep very much (too much) to themselves, and are even a loving and helpful lot. …And the agenda is prepared by the likes of Amit Shah, our home minister, and the think tank of the RSS, an organization that represents India’s Far Right. modi is just a willing instrument in their hands.

The above group knows that it would not receive support from Europe, or Most of the world, for that matter. Hence these two ‘friends’ fawn on each other.

I do not know about the States; but in India, Most of (political) crowds are gathered for the price of a few hundred rupees, in many cases as low as Rs. 150 (2 dollars!), a meal, and oftentimes a small bottle of alcohol. So let us not think that all those people lined up out of love for good ole tRump, though watching celebrities is one of India’s favourite pastimes.

The Anti Muslim agenda is Very real, but Not easily Perceptible. ( Thus the Very Large, numbering in Hundreds of Thousands, – totally Unprecedented in India – of mainly Women gathering at nearly 30 cities in India, being called the Shaheen Bagh protests, after the place where this had originated ).

…The idea might be, must be, to take over Muslim properties, though this is not going to happen in a day.

They would also be Dis-Enfranchising the Muslims, (and later the Christians, who are happily slumbering away).

And end up with a Hindu Rashtra (Nation). But mind You, they do not want to make this So Simple! …After all, we have Many nations that are Hindu, (as a nation, Nepal was one), More as Moslem, as Iran, the Middle East, and in Southeast Asia.

BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE DETENTION (CONCENTRATION) CAMPS, BUILT FOR THE MINORITIES.

India’s central administration brought in two, hasty, ‘mid-night’ acts in the parliament. One is called the CAA, (Citizenship Amendment Act) an innocuous one that says India will give citizenship to refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. …Do they even need a law to do that? But the fun part is that it will not give said citizenship to …Muslims.

Then We have a thing called the NRC, the National Register of Citizens, which, it is said, will affect NO Indian citizen. …But YOU will have to prove that You are really an ‘Original’ citizen of India. The administration shamelessly concedes that citizenship papers might have been ‘bought,’ aka Bribery. So How do You prove You are an Original citizen? We shall have to show ‘Land Ownership Papers’ dating at least 60-70 years. (India’s biometric Adhar card, the Voter Id, Your Passport, would not be considered valid documents for that!)

And therein lies the crux of the matter.

If a Non-Muslim is lacking the requisite documents: “Sorry for the trouble; You can go.” Muslim: “To the Detention centre You go!”

amit shaw brazenly does double and triple talk, falling back on: ‘It will affect NO Indian citizen.’ But the minions have got the idea, have scented blood, and We have Lynching, Destruction of houses and property,

…All denied by the administration, and taking NO action on culprits; actually they are lauded.

Indian media is a Highly controlled one. Either they would lose their licence, have (false) cases slapped on them, or… I would not put Violent threats against family members beyond the ken of things here.

Thus I Highly doubt You will get a report of this sort anywhere! …And I would Highly doubt that it was love for tRump, (most Indians would not know who he is!) – that brought all those crowds to see him that day. It would have been Money, and Threats.

Much Regards. Yesudas.

Learning, at the age of 72; Edited.

[ NOTE: This is a PS, correcting my former word ‘Immigrant’ to Migrant, please. ]

Hello, my Dear Friends,

Had been concentrating on Facebook and Twitter, as they take lesser time to write.

Feel inspired to start working on my good old Blog again.

About this ‘learning…’

Had been showing what I found wrong, and had thought that people would simply and automatically understand that Doing the Opposite was the Solution.

But Bill Gates, one of whose posts I was reading of late, suggests that we, (in my case particularly ‘I’), say it out, in black and white as it were, what could be the solutions.

With India’s Corona lock down, it has meant that thousands of Immigrant Migrant workers want to return home, deciding to Walk(!), Hundreds of kilometres, as Trains are cancelled; – along with small children.

Youth and others are being harassed by the police, when these are trying to return.

And this is what I wrote to the Indian Prime Minister’s Office:

@PMOIndia

1. Pl arrange for FOOD along the way, for those trying to return home.

2. Army trucks could help them for at least for part of journey.

3. Army shd be under STRICT instructions not to Molest, particularly the women and girls.

[ Army men have been known to use ‘Rape’ as a tool, for what they would say bringing out the truth, as well as… ]

Response of Women of the North East of India, for Younger women being raped:

Do You think I am improving? 🙂

Love and Regards, and Stay Safe.
