4 Powerlifters killed; Fog Arrested

*******

As You might have heard, Heavy Fog, and the resultant Impaired visibility have resulted in the cancellation of many Flights, Trains, or their rescheduling.

This has not been the condition of just one day. The Fog has been its effect felt for the last many weeks.

Thus 4 Power-lifters of India died, and one ‘world champion,’ has been injured in a Fog related accident.

As such our champions of the law and order have duly arrested Fog.

To read more about the reasons behind the death of these Brainy fellows, as in:

“A senior police officer said the car was speeding**, adding there were some bottles around and the possibility of drink driving cannot be ruled out.”

**Speeding in a Fog! That’s why I have called them Brainy Fellows.

PS: The ‘law and order,’ under the orders of the central administration, would have liked to arrest Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, as he dared to win by a massive majority. Possibly because of the Fog, they have not succeeded. But they assure us that they are trying.

That, in India, comes down to S.P. UDAYAKUMAR, the Anti Nuclear Activist of Kudankulam fame, and his PACCHAI THAMIZHAGAM KATCHI (The Green Tamil Nadu Party) in the South, and Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP in the North. …In the South, the local leaders have turned the AAP here into a Cesspool.

Why does he, and Why Can’t he…

Why is Yesudas writing on the topics that he does, and just Why Can’t he write on Beauty and Goodness and Love and things like that?

Now there’s a trick question if ever there was one. All I write is On Love, and Because of Love. Writing in Aid of the Have-Nots is Caring, Loving. As Christ taught us through the parable of the Good Samaritan, We, the Strong, the Able, are All Called to Help People Whom We Do Not Even Know!

Very Probably Most of You live in conditions very different from mine. Very probably, You, my Dear Reader, living in the States or places like that, or, if living in India, in a flat in a city, would NOT be having a Circumstance like mine.

DOES THAT MEAN WE ARE NOT TO THINK, CARE OR TALK ABOUT IT?

  • Why did Christ go around for about 3 Years, teaching and Demanding almost Impossible things like Loving One’s Enemy? Was it because somebody had chased Him out of His house?
  • Why did the Buddha leave the Palace? Was it because he could not stand his mother-in-law?
  • Why did Isaiah and Jeremiah Speak? Were they having Personal problems? Why was Paul on fire?

Gandhi, Mandela, Medha Patkar, Arvind Kejriwal… All these fought for Others. And have set us an Example. We too are called to be Heroes. And We CAN be Heroes. …Let us Do it!

Victory is Only for the Brave

For all the quote from Ecclesiastes, (9:11), the Race just might be for the Swift. And The Brave. And Most of the time it goes to them, too.

VICTORY IS DEFINITELY AND ONLY FOR THE BRAVE.

Horatius, a Lone Man, a Brave Man, decides to Stand Alone at the ‘mouth’ of the Bridge, a Bottleneck, and Saves Rome. His story is to be taken as an example, and not for discussion, as that is not the subject here.

I consider Gandhiji, Nelson Mandela and Arvind Kejriwal as Good Examples too.

*******

They, the politicians, have spent Crores to come to their positions. Only the Naive would believe they spent this to ‘Serve’ their Countrymen!

Being Discussed and Questioned Threatens them. To Stop this they will effect New laws, and use All the old laws to the Full. But the Only Way to Retain Sanity, and to Ensure the Good Future of our Children, is to Keep Questioning them.

If We have to have Victory in this, We have to Act. And let Us Remember that Only the Brave Achieve it.

NO NEED to ‘Call’ a Thief a Thief!

According to me, the Only mistake Arvind has done, and what quite some AAP-ians are doing, is to call gadkari a ‘chor,’ (thief).

I AM NOT SAYING GADKARI HAD NOT DONE HANKY PANKY!

I am Only Saying that there is NO NEED to ‘Call’ him that. (Everybody knows it, after all!)

1. AAP had collected evidence against gadkari.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/lok-sabha-elections-2014/news/AAP-provides-proof-against-Nitin-Gadkari/articleshow/32380554.cms

2. The MEDIA itself collected and provided proofs of his deeds.

3. gadkari had threatened of dire consequences if and when he/bjp came to power.

*******

IN SPITE OF ALL THIS, he holds high post in the new administration.

All this shows THE CALIBRE OF INDIA’S ELECTORATE at Present.

Let us of the AAP Not Waste Time.

IN CRICKET, when Sledging takes place, when a player of the Opposite team abuses Us, We do Not do Dharna, Protests. We get on with the Game.

Let us LEAVE OUT ALL NEGATIVITIES, and GO FORWARD and Make the People of our Country Realize that AAP is the Best Option for them.

AAP needs New Life

AAP members call gadkari chor

Graphic: From Facebook.

The Banner in the picture says:

‘nitin gadkari is a thief, (repeated twice more). Arrest Us (also).’

[gadkari is a bjp man, against whom there seems to be ‘proof’ of shady dealings. It would seem that Arvind Kejriwal had called gadkari a ‘thief,’ because of which he, (Arvind!) is in jail, having refused to pay bail and stay out. The protest above is to do with all this.]

*******

I Highly Appreciate the Enthusiasm of these (Young) people. Their Love for our Motherland, a Corruption Free system, and their Application, all have to be Admired.

EXCEPT for their use of the word ‘chor,’ which means thief. I Totally Disagree with them in this. It serves NO USEFUL PURPOSE, except making these people think that they have done something great.

Using this word and protesting like this is Typical Behaviour for those who are around 30 years of age, or less. By 45, (which is also Arvind’s age, I suppose), One Realizes that there is ‘Nothing to Prove,’ and People move with Deliberation, as against Youth, who believe in Jumpy, Flashy endeavours.

Whether it is Cricket, using a Gun, Sword, or Any Martial Art, STEADINESS of Mind and Stance Count. We are not speaking about the ‘Footwork’ necessary for Cricket or Anything else. But Let us Not ‘Twitch About.’ We should leave that to Monkeys.

As such I had ‘shared’ this picture in Facebook under the title: Infantile Behaviour.

Giridhar Ramachandran, a Facebook Friend had written: “I totally agree. However, how do we change this? How do we reach out to everyone and make them take more concrete steps? Is there a way to communicate with the NEC of AAP?”

I wrote these lines in response:

Thank You for Your response, GR! I can see You are really interested in the AAP and the Country.

As You will see, there are already TWO questions in Yours. They concern, ‘Everyone,’ and the ‘NEC.’

1. Let me start with the NEC. Ideally, the ‘Top’ should have organized things in such a way that there are ever widening circles, as for instance in the military, where we have the Generals, the Colonels, to make it simple, the Majors, Captains, etc, and even among the Noncommissioned officers, the Sergeants, and even lower.

Continuing with the example of the armed forces, even the lowest ranking personnel, though Most of his life is spent with the Sergeant, etc., has the right to meet his ‘commanding officer,’ And the Necessary Ways and Means for it.

The AAP has not provided for this. I would say a Complete Reorganization is needed in our Beloved AAP, if it has to have any Life.

2. What We CAN do at the moment is to Talk to Anybody and Everybody we meet about the Need for a Corruption Free Administration. People have to be CONVINCED about this. And this will take AT LEAST FIVE YEARS. Because convincing a 100 people is not enough. The Whole of India has to be approached, and this may actually take Decades.

When Gandhiji organized his Satyagraha movement, he did it by getting the volunteers to meet the villagers, have endless meetings with them, etc. And only after YEARS of work of this sort, did Gandhiji take on the english.

AAP has made the mistake of going into ‘National politics,’ while Most of the Nation does not even know about the Party, its Policies, the Reasons for taking certain steps, etc.

Let me take part of Your question agains: ‘How do we reach out to everyone and make them take more concrete steps?’

One-by-One-by-One, We just have to Talk to our Family Members, Friends, Acquaintances, Neighbours and Strangers, Long, Hard and Repeatedly, about Our Policies, and the Need for the AAP!

*******

For all its shortcomings, AAP is Still the Party of those who are Not Corrupt, and Which Stands and Fights against Corruption. As such, it is Still MY Party, which I shall continue to Support, and for which I shall Work to the Best of my Ability.

And I Firmly believe that the AAP Will Bring New Life to India!

Why did Arvind vacate the cm’s chair of delhi?

This is my latest on the subject, in reply to certain comments/queries.

“rr, you disappoint me. It does not matter where you live. As for professionalism, you have not read my posts carefully. 

Development, you seem to think, is pouring money. Devt will NOT happen till corruption is done away with. There is ENOUGH money in the country and in the govt coffers.

But once somebody is voted to power, he misuses the money to get rich himself. AND WE DO NOT HAVE THE MECHANISM TO CHALLENGE HIM, REMOVE HIM FROM ACTION IF NECESSARY. 

So there was NO purpose in having remained on the delhi chair, to jump around like a Monkey on a String, Totally under the Handler’s control, wherever the centre wanted you. The rule that delhi had to have its laws approved by the centre was passed in 2002. It was not in the Constitution.

To remain cm under such laws would have meant following the centre’s policies, and just enjoying the ‘perks’ of the chair. It would NOT have brought the change that AAP is trying for.

There was the ‘chance’ that congress would have supported AAP’s move for the Janlokpal bill, out of Fear of Criticism of the Populace. That did not happen. And it just Shows how Shallow people We are.

Maybe you would like to keep sitting on such chairs. Do it, if you can. There is NO cm’ship if it is not fully free.”

3 Reasons Why Kejriwal is one of India’s Greatest!

1. The following picture shows Arvind Kejriwal, the Leader of the AAP (a newly formed Party of the Common People), arriving at a man called ‘Lali’s’ house, in the Traditional manner, with a Platter with Fruits and Flowers, etc.

thaali

2. This one shows Lali Crying. Actually he is begging Arvind’s pardon. He is doing this because he had Slapped Arvind on the Pretext of Garlanding him. Yet Arvind had called on Lali with Respect! The Platter Symbolizes that.

Apology

3. The next photographs shows the Swellings on Arvind’s face, particularly under his left Eye, under his Cheek bone, etc. The Injuries and Pains that he must have suffered could not be shown. Nor that of his Wife and Children, or that of his Father.

Image

(All Photographs from Facebook)

Arvind was Slapped during his Campaigns. But,

He will the be the ONE person whom Indian History will Remember of these times, with Praise, along with the Other Greats of India, like the Mahatma.

What courage is required to slap a man who refuses police protection? (Though, after the horse has bolted, in this picture we can see ‘armed police’ deputed for his protection).

*******

Now, Please Name 5 Indian politicians who would do as Arvind has done!

Wanted: Honest Media.

The Villain casually invites the Journalist to a Hill-top Restaurant, and Calmly Shoots her between the Eyes. Afterwards he recalls the pleasure had had in doing the same to various other journalists, in various Dictatorships. The ‘Freedom of the Press’ had been proving to be a nuisance. But shoot a few of them, and the Others miraculously fell in line.

What I have written above is what I recall from Memory from one of my Favourite books, namely: ‘Remo, Unarmed and Dangerous,’ by Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir.

*******

Modern media is the offspring of those Brave Souls who had ground away with Pen and Paper. Speaking only of Physical Hardships, there were those who went to Difficult-to-Reach Places to gather News, those who went to the Battle Fronts at risk of Life, and the Many who must have been Killed, ‘Because’ they were Journalists. I pay them my Homage.

I came across a Brave Young Woman named Y.D., who had even been molested in her pursuit of Reporting. Yet She carries on, for which let us pay Her and Others like her Our Respects.

*******

Coming back to ‘media’ in general, those who Investigated and Reported were Intellectuals, and must have been Concerned People.

We see how ‘The Hindu’ had played a part in Our Freedom Struggle:

“The first editorial on the public activities of the remarkable Indian barrister in South Africa appeared on August 20, 1896. In turn, Gandhiji, the consummate politician and master communicator, fed the newspaper with his communications on the struggle in South Africa.” …And,

‘The editorial says, “We hope that some good will result to our oppressed countrymen in South Africa from the efforts which Mr. Gandhi is making to rouse public opinion in India.”‘

I have culled both of the above from:

http://www.frontline.in/static/html/fl2020/stories/20031010005512800.htm

And it is not only ‘The Hindu.’ The Other eminent National Daily, ‘The Times of India,’ had played its part too.

*******

But, with time, things like ‘ADVERTISEMENTS’ started creeping in. And these have become the Bane of media. Think of all those ‘magnates’ who own various publishing houses and TV channels. We may be sure that they do it purely for the money that these bring in.

So, media has changed from being ‘Reporters’ to those who are Searching for Advertisements!

media gets Very Angry when We say such things of them. I raise the following charges against them:

A. In the coming Elections, the congress, the bjp and the AAP have become the Major contenders. media has been ‘VERY faithful’ in covering modi’s rallies. How Much of AAP’s rallies/gatherings have YOU been able to see, Dear Reader?

B. When AAP members/volunteers have been BEATEN UP, media calls that a ‘Fight.’ When AAP banners were torn, and volunteers beaten with Iron rods, etc, at AMETHI just recently, media again called it a ‘Fight.’ media HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO SHOW FOOTAGE OF ANY DAMAGE TO THE ‘OTHER’ PARTY.

Most political parties have drummed up, and have, professional rowdies in their cadre. So in clashes with members of AAP vs Other parties, it is NOT a clash of the Titans, but almost Professional Rowdies vs the College Hothead.

The bjp cadre had Beaten up AAP volunteers and had broken the Windshield of Arvind’s car. AAP volunteers had thrown some bricks when they protested against this at the bjp offices. I have seen videos of that. But the members have been taken up for that. Arvind himself Apologized for it.

We see below what had happened to Pushpa, an AAP volunteer, at Mumbai, when She had been Role Playing in a Street Drama. She was attacked and Wounded with a BLADE. If her Cheek had been cut, She would have been Disfigured for Life; and the strike a few inches to the right would have Cut Open Her Jugular.

Image

Can the bjp or the congress, or the media, show Damage or Injury done to members of their parties?

C. SNICKERING FACES, MOCKING EYES AND TAUNTING WORDS can be noticed when media speaks of the AAP. Why? Are They not Human Beings? Are We not Human Beings? When media behaves thus senselessly, one could well ask, as they do in Tamil Nadu: ‘Sotha thaan Thingiriya, illa vera ethaachuma?’

How Wonderful! The condition of those who have been forced to ‘pose’ for the photograph is apparent enough. Some are not even able to stand. But the woman is happily clicking away. ‘Protected’ by whoever it is. As to Why he has that helmet and watchamacallit in his hand, I do not know. His belly alone should have been Intimidating enough.

I say that much of Today’s media has come down to this level. Protected first of all by their Owners; by ‘laws’ which protect ‘them,’ and add to that the whole batteries of lawyers. All Serving One-Another’s Interests.

Sadly, the media of today seems to be in a mess. The On-line news from, let us say, the Times of India group is Excellent (these days), but the Times Now TV channel, if it is from the same group, is perhaps the worst. The Hindu, (I do not know if it has a TV counterpart), has remained very good. Among TV channels, Doordarshan, India’s National TV, as well as Sun News, are fairly Impartial.

Wanted: Honest Media.

Needed: Love for COUNTRY!

Am addressing this particularly to members of the AAP.

We have given Reason for Others to Laugh at Us. They are saying that there are Fights for ‘Seats’ going on in the AAP.

We started with So much Pain. To give Just One example, Arvind was carried off like an Animal. The second photo also shows how some of the police were ‘Laughing’ when they were doing that. I am not saying that Arvind was the Only one who suffered for the Cause. But after all, I suppose All of us are ready accept HIM as our Model.

*******

We surely do not want to be like these two shown below, who have become Notorious with the name, ‘IDIOTS.’

Image

The ONLY reason We are laughing at them is that they have had NO thought for Others, in this case, the young Woman with the Baby.

To Repeat, We have called people who have no thought for Others as Idiots. What will WE be, If We Think ONLY about Ourselves, and NOT about the COUNTRY?

  • Is the CANDIDATE selected by the committee YOUNGER to You? Let Us Accept and Support Him/Her.
  • Has a WOMAN been selected? We are Constantly talking of Working for Women’s Upliftment. Let Us Prove it by Supporting this Person.

Maybe You are Very Good, maybe You are even Better. But Please Lend Your Support to the Team, the AAP, and Work for the COUNTRY. Please Remember that You and I joined the AAP to serve the COUNTRY. If We leave the Party just now, WHATEVER the Reason, We are Weakening it. Your Leaving Will Weaken It. The COUNTRY and the PARTY Need ALL the Support they can get.

The Elections are On Our Heads, and WE DO NOT HAVE MUCH TIME. For the Next Election, am Sure mistakes, if any, will be corrected. Let us Accept the Decision of those whom We have Accepted as Our Leaders. Let us have Trust in Them.

So, If You did not get a ‘Ticket’ for the elections, Please Accept the Decision of Our Leaders, and Continue to Work for the COUNTRY, AS PART OF THE AAP.

Hearty Regards to All. Vande Mataram. (Please SHARE this).
