Yesterday, I welcomed our Japanese onsite coordinator to our office in Bengaluru, and it actually changed my life. Let me explain what happened. Soon after receiving him at the airport with formal pleasantries, I took him into our company cab, and in no time, we were already chugging along the busy streets of Bengaluru. As expected, we struck into a conversation starting with the weather, and gradually swayed towards topics like development, cleanliness, etc. I think he initially hesitated to say this, but after some familiarity & comfort, he opened up & said that India has good talent but is unfortunately very underdeveloped. I was quick to remind him that India was actually a superpower till the 10th century, and pointed out to him that it's all due to the 500 years of Islamic rule & 300 years of British rule, which broke our civilization, and resulted in such underdeveloped nation. And also, started explaining him about all the breaking India forces like missionaries working overtime to keep our nation backward. As I was explaining him this, we were stuck in a traffic jam & I noticed him keenly observing a guy on the street spitting pan-masala right there. He asked me "You see how that guy made the street dirty? Is it because the Islamic rulers & British imperialists had taught him such habits 500 years ago?". Frankly, I had no answer and tried to mumble something. The very next moment, he saw a vehicle on the other side of the road jumping a traffic signal, leading to chaos & more traffic jam at the other side. He pointed it out to me and asked me "You see how that guy violated the traffic rule & caused a mess? Is it because the British taught him to break rules 300 years ago? Or is it the breaking India agents who are brainwashing him into breaking traffic rules?". My entire body became numb. I couldn't say anything. He told me "You guys seem to be an expert in passing on the blame to everyone else but yourself. It is you people who have no civic sense, no respect for rules, no respect for your surroundings, but you people know how to easily blame everything on some medieval rulers, British rulers, missionaries, breaking India agents etc. How many years has it been since you got independence? 70 years? Look at us. In 1945, our Hiroshima, Nagasaki and almost half of our country was completely destroyed, but within 20 years each of us owned responsibility, and developed. And here, even after 70 years, you guys are busy blaming others while the fault is actually within yourselves?". That's it. I had enough of it. I felt humiliated, really pissed off & remained silent throughout the journey. But at the end of the day, when I mentally revisited everything that happened & introspected, I felt that what he said was right. Unless we stop blaming others, and we ourselves gear up, become disciplined, respect our nation, respect rules, respect our surroundings, etc, we cannot improve. And this change should come from within us.

The Wire founders Siddharth Varadarajan and M K Venu become butt of all jokes

http://ift.tt/2Aafd8a The Wire founders Siddharth Varadarajan and M K Venu become butt of all jokes The Internet is unforgiving. Recently, the leftist propaganda website, The Wire, which seems to be on a mission to spread innuendoes, lies, propaganda, misrepresentations, and other such canards, has reduced itself to a joke. After the recent ‘exposé‘ by abusive troll Swati Chaturvedi masquerading as a journalist, twitterati donned their creative cap and brought us some entertainment on an otherwise sleepy Sunday. It all started when it was brought to people’s notice that under the UPA, Rajya Sabha TV, which came under the control of former vice president Hamid Ansari, was allegedly used to spread agenda and pay the ‘loyalists’ handsomely. Both, M K Venu and Siddharth Varadarajan, founding editors of The Wire, were paid handsomely, Rs. 15,000 per appearance, totalling to Rs. 33 lakh and Rs. 14.70 lakh respectively, of the tax payers’ money in last few years. Varadarajan, who hosted a show discontinued it from April, while Venu was told not to host the shows he was hosting since August. It is only after August that the hit-jobs by The Wire have gone up Rajya Sabha TV comes under Vice-President and Hamid Ansari exploited it for agenda and to pay their party Loyalists handsomely #Ecosystem Editor of propaganda site Wire @mkvenu1 was paid Rs 15,000 per appearance.

Copied from series of tweets by Joseph T Noony @JoeAgneya Will make you sad that inspite of being from a culture that was so clearly advanced intellectually way higher than others you are destined to see it being insulted constantly & considered lowly, poverty ridden in most of the world. READ CAREFULLY 1) Jesuits, 'soldiers of Christ', aren't your average priests. An order founded in 1540, it had great emphasis on scholarship, learning native languages and unorthodox approaches to missionary work. Pope Francis is a Jesuit, which explains his liberal views 2) Naturally, the Jesuits had no qualms about amassing any astronomical & mathematical knowledge from the pagan lands they went to proselytize in. India was no exception. They were very active in Kerala, where they gained access to Yuktibhasa, the seminal manuscript of Calculus. 3) At that time, Europe was struggling with a calendar problem-Their Julian calendar with leaps years had cumulatively lost 8 days by 1200s & kept getting worse! Pope Gregory ordered the Jesuits to gather whatever knowledge they could from Pagans-They came back with Indian Calculus 4) But neither Jesuits NOR ANY of the European scholars at that time had the mental capacity to understand the ADVANCED calculus. Not Galilio, not Copernicus, not Tycho Brahe. They stared stupidly at the Calculus in the manuscripts, taking only the astronomy 5) Even the chief Jesuit mathematician Christopher Clavius who oversaw the manuscript gathering & calendar reform was helpless. It is notable that he was one of the FIRST Europeans to start using the INDIAN decimal point- Probably the only thing he understood from the Yuktibhasa 6) While Clavius took the decimal system from the Pagan texts, others too were busy in their appropriations. Tycho Brahe who undoubtedly had direct access to Kerala school manuscripts did a blunder deserving a new proverb- "When you copy someone's work, you also copy the blunders" 7) Tycho Brahe, while studying the Yuktibhasa, stumbled upon the erroneous planetary model of Neelakantha Somayaji who believed that all planets except earth revolves around the sun, which in turn revolves around the earth- the 'Tychonic Model'. Coincidence? 8) Tycho's predecessor Nicholas Copernicus had already obtained the heliocentric model from the texts of Brahmagupta and Bhaskara via Arab sources . But the copy-cat disciple took a step backwards.This caused disagreement with assistant Johannes Keplar who fixed it after Tycho died. 9) Johannes Keplar finally compiled all the astronomical knowledge amassed from Aryabhatta, Brahmagupta, Bhaskara and Madhava and declared the 'Laws of planetary motion', components of which was already known in India since Aryabhatta including the law of 'elliptical orbits'. 10) But we still haven't reached calculus! None of these people could understand it, let alone apply it! Not even the great Johannes Keplar. They only took the necessary astronomy for Gregorian reforms,the decimal, rudimentary mathematics & some blunders. 11) Calculus waited for the day another Avatara, a genius like Bhaskara or Madhava to take birth again! Back in India, we had already sunk into the darkest age. Vijayanagar fell & the whole country plunged into desert barbarism. Kerala school, the last temple of reason, also died out 12) That genius was born in 1642. He was Issac Newton. He finally comprehended the calculus, applied it to the law of gravitation(which itself was discovered by Bhaskara) unifying physics & math. For First time in history, Europe overtook India in science. 13) It was not just Issac newton though. In the 17th century, a large number of Europeans were having independent access to these manuscripts. And they were all claiming to have rediscovered the mathematical results on their own! Shameless! Leibniz, Fermat, Euler, Pascal and others! 14) The results in the Yuktibhasa started popping up ALL OVER Europe like pimples at the same time.In the 17thC! They gave their own name to the infinite series. Newton & Leibniz were bitterly fighting over it! Thieves fighting over who stole it first! 15) But the fact of the matter is, NONE OF THEM could produce formal proof of how they derived the results. They had pulled it out of thin air. Thats why we have a story of Newton & the apple of enlightenment falling on his head! But we know Yuktibhasa was not grown on an apple tree 16) newton knew that he was appropriating without due attribution to sources. That is exactly what plagiarism means. Perhaps he felt guilty.For he may not have known the names of the intellectual giants-Bhaskara, Madhava, Jyesthadeva, Neelakanta-The true fathers of Analytical science 17) I have compiled in as concisely few tweets as possible only the key motives & circumstances of the transmission. But the actual mathematical aspects, additional evidences & implications are complex.Please share with family, friends & also strangers.It's the only way to reclaim it. For those who wish to have a deeper understanding, do read "Cultural Foundations of Mathematics: The Nature of Mathematical Proof " by Prof CK Raju. It is quite technical & abstruse. A bit costly too. An easier way is his website ckraju.net Basically stole from Bharat, never gave credit even vaguely, used stolen work to drive industrial revolution, colonized & looted Bharat using Bharatiya knowledge And present day Indians in turn glorified the thieves as great thinkers and inventors to a level where our kids are taught of them as heroes in school books and professional degree courses while the original inventors like Bhaskara lie in some corner unknown unsung in own country Wow! What a sad confused state of affairs To know a bit about the original text yuktibhasha read Wikipedia entry here - http://ift.tt/2yRpDMB

Shashi Tharoor suffers from a quaint dissonance. He thrashes the British Colonial rule for its cruelty - true enough, but for that he dissembles/excuses, the sheer malice of Mughals and venal incompetence of Congress, the 2 rules which bracket the British, in Indian History. Take for example this, "The Congress MP appearing on national channel ABC’s Question and Answer on September 04, 2017, described at length how India’s textiles, dominated mostly by Muslims, were systematically destroyed by the British. “The British came to one of the richest countries in the world when the GDP was almost 27% in the 17th century, 23% in the18th. But, over 200 years of exploitation, loot and destruction reduced India to a poster child for third world poverty”, he said in reply to a question about the British rule in India." I presume he is quoting Angus Maddison's research on GDP. Then let's look at the GDP % prior to Mughals taking 1500-1700 as the Mughal era, the GDP % was evidently higher prior to the Mughals, it was even higher prior the Muslim Sultanates. Indian fell behind China for the first time, during Mughal time. So why excuse the Muslims/Mughals? And then let's look at 1950-2003, the Congress era. India and China started out at the same stage. Compare the change achieved by China and by India. So why defend the Congress and be a member? Mughals and Congress, appear to be better, only when compared to the disaster of Colonialism. Not much of a credit, is it? And that too only in terms of GDP. There was a different cost which was extorted from the civilization by the Muslim marauders and Congress Kleptocrats - in terms of culture, heritage and lives. The argument that while Muslims looted and massacred, they did not send the loot outside of the country, so they are better than British, that is as pathetic an excuse, as the British saying, yes we looted and massacred India, but gave cricket and railways. Also remember, India had to pay with 2 huge pieces of herself, broken and severed, due to the Muslims. Of course the second looter, aided the first looter in that. So that is the cost India had to pay for Muslims, much more than the British loot. And the remaining India is still paying the descendants of both the looters, in terms of social-political-cultural benefits.

PMO India : Report Card

बात नवंबर 2007 की है। विधानसभा का चुनाव प्रचार अपने चरम पर था। NDTV, नरेंद्र मोदी को हराने के लिए कमर कस के मैदान में उतर चुका था। विनोद दुआ रिपोर्टिंग करने के नाम पर पूरे एक महीने तक गुजरात में रहे। रोज़ वह अपने कैमरामैन के साथ किसी नई जगह पहुँच जाते और लोगों से सवाल जवाब शुरू कर देते। उनके सवाल रेपेटिटिव होते थे और इनमें एक सवाल जो कॉमन होता था वह ये कि "क्या आप जानते हैं कि आप के मुख्यमंत्री के हाथ खून से सने हुए हैं?" एक महीने के धुआँधार चुनाव प्रचार के बाद विनोद दुआ दिल्ली वापस लौटे। मतगणना वाले दिन सुबह 8 बजे नया सूट पहन कर, तैयार हो कर, दुआ NDTV के स्टूडियो पहुंचे। उन्हें पूरा विश्वास था कि उनकी मेहनत रंग लाएगी और मोदी सत्ता से रुखसत होंगे। पर दुआ भूल गये कि मेहनत तो मोदी ने भी खूब की है। 10 बजते-बजते भाजपा की सत्ता में वापसी तय मानी जाने लगी। विनोद दुआ का मन पैनल डिसकशन में रत्ती भर भी नहीं लग रहा था। वह स्टूडियो छोड़ कर जो गये तो दोबारा NDTV के न्यूज़ रूम में वापस नहीं लौटे। कुछ महीनों बाद विनोद दुआ एक नया प्रोग्राम लेकर आये। उसका नाम था - "ज़ायका इंडिया का" 2014 में नरेंद्र मोदी अहमदाबाद से निकल कर पूर्ण बहुमत के साथ दिल्ली चले आये। इंडिया का जायका बदल चुका था।

Imagine for a moment if an American politician were asked about Osama Bin Laden, and her response was that she had no idea who was responsible for Sept. 11. She'd become instantly unelectable for dog catcher — no matter what her skin colour, or that of her interviewer. Even here in Canada, Sept. 11 conspiracy theorists have been forced out of politics, though the event was a primarily American tragedy. Yet here we have the leader of a national Canadian political party telling us he has no idea who orchestrated our own Sept. 11 — the 1985 bombing of Air India Flight 182 — and the response among many is to scold the interviewer for insensitivity. This is insane." Veteran journalist Jonathan Kay writes in CBC News about Jagmeet Singh's Air India controversy.

Vishnu

Halebeedu rock cut temples are the architectural marvels of india. Each inch of space is carved with passion and perfection. To quote my Dad - If we have money - We can build 100 Pyramids, 100 great Walls and a dozen Taj Mahals but no one can replicate Belur in any part of the world as there is no Vishnu Vardhan to imagine it and no Jakkanna to carve it Jakkanna was the sculpture who carved it and i bet everyone knows about Michael Angelo while no one knows about Jakkanaa.[ Infact SS Rajamouli is called as Jakkanna in Telugu ] Vishnu Vardhan's wife Shantala Devi was a beautiful woman and a great dancer and many of the dancing sculptures in Halebeedu and Belur are modelled on her. So my Dad thought - if a girl is born is born - i will name her Shantala and if a boy is born I will name him Vishnu Vardhan Vishnu Vardhan's original name was Bitti Deva. He was a jain King. Ramanujacharya of VishistaAdvaitha fame, perhaps the most influential hindu guru after Sankara was touring India preaching his Vaishnava Bhakti tradition He converted BittiDeva into Sanathan Dharma and gave him the name Vishnu Vardhan [Blessing of Lord Vishnu] Ramanuja is for Sanathan Dharma what Thomas Acquinas is for Christianity He gave intellectual basis for Bhakti Tradition and popularised Vishnu or Vaishanava bhakti tradition. He brought back vigour and intellect to Sanatan Dharma and brought back Hinduism in most parts of South India which were under huge influence of Jainism and Buddhism. India was a great place at that time with thriving traditions of Saivism, Vaishnavism, Jainism and Buddhism. Srirangam temple, Tirupati Tirumala temples are all based on Ramanujacharya teachings Inspired by Ramanujcharya - Vishnu Vardhan built great temples of Halebeedu and Belur on Lord Vishnu and his Ten Avatars. Vishnu Vardhan capital was DwaraSamudra and Halebeedu temple which is in ruins today was original Dwarasamudra. It is more bigger and greater temple than well preserved Belur temple. 200 years after these great temples were built Allauddin Khilji came to power and changed everything - he sent Malik Kafur [Naib] to conquer south India in 1310. Malik Kafur [he was hindu who was castrated and converted to islam and sold as slave to Khilji.He is supposed to a lover of Khilji) .TO quote medieval historian Zainuddin Bharani - In those four or five years when the Sultan was losing his memory and his senses, he had fallen deeply and madly in love with the Malik Naib. He had entrusted the responsibility of the government and the control of the servants to this useless, ungrateful, ingratiate, sodomite] Kafur destroyed South India - Pandyas, Kakatiyas, HOysalas and Yadavas. He destroyed Hindu temples and ravaged South India. While he was destroying DwaraSamudra the local people covered Belur temple in Sand and hence he couldn't destroy it. Hence it survives to this day. And the more marvelous Dwarasamudra is lost for ever. Hence it is called as halebeedu [Old ruin] today Now tell me - Why do Hindus dont read about Ramanuja while every Christian reads Thomas Aquinas and defends Christianity based on his writings. His logic is taught in every university logic course. In fact i read Acquinas to learn logic. WHere are Ramanuja books in English or other languages ? The only person I know who can talk about Ramanuja is Kaza Venkat Father. Why are Indians not taught about Vishnu Vardhan or Belur while Shajahan and Tajmahal is given so much importance that many people in the world know only about India because of Taj Mahal. India has 100s of architectural wonders like Taj. But just as we reduced Indian freedom to one man Gandhi and made him Dad of Nation. We have reduced all our culture architecture to Taj Mahal and all our history to folklore of Mughal kings And we have totally forgotten our great philosophers. As an Indian i think everyone should see Belur in their life time and it is so unfortunate that Govt or tourism hardly gives any importance to it and they are not even maintianed properly.

When I was buying a Ganesh idol in Thailand, the seller started explaining its significance. He was shocked when I told him that I already knew. He thought India was an Islamic country. . Same Thailand, the sidewalk restaurant guys would pull me to their stalls, saying come, come, Halal, Halal. . This is all because of Tajmahal. . Congress’s India always presented the Muslim artifacts to the world to establish our identity, essentially dismissing our cultural heritage. So, every foreigner wants to visit the Tajmahal. There are at least 100 structures that are far superior to the Taj. . Despite all the destruction by the invaders, India still has thousands of monuments. These amazing structures, however, have no public toilets, no security, no maintenance, and no hotels in the area for tourists. The locals pee on their walls. . I like Thailand because their Ayodhya was not destroyed and Ram is the most revered word there. . || उत्थिष्ठ भारत ||

A FB friend who is an academic abroad asked an interesting question. Does fighting for the Hindu cause have any impact upon your health? He was surprised that in so many answers, a different issue came up, that people feel constrained to be silent about their positions because that impacts their professional lives very badly. There are genuine negative consequences to being openly right wing, even now. I thought yeah so what else is new and let it be. But today on another friends wall I saw a comment, that a colleague who was a classical singer and Sanskrit scholar felt constrained to hide it for fear that people will think her a dehati. I was a corporate trainer for over two decades and twice I came upon senior executives who hid the fact they were trained classical musicians and singers. Western Classical is fine Indian is backward. In 1992 I had just moved to Mumbai with no support system living in a hovel and working as a wage slave. One asshole at work found I supported the Ram Mandir and tried to get me fired. When I was a trainer the greatest fear my employers had at each place was that it would get about that I am not only a Yogi, I know Tarot and Vaastu too. And damn well. But that would destroy my professional credibility apparently. I would be instantly slotted as Dubeji Pandeji level as one of them so kindly explained to me. The greatest achievement of the Nehruvian Idea of India barbarism was to demonize the word Hindu. Anything that had a Hindu perspective was instantly communal and dangerous and needed weeding out. I am sure every person can give similar stories. The brainwashing has been so deep, when I made my famous post on Honoring the Vertical Man, one of my followers shared it and instantly he was criticized by a Hindu lady in the US for sharing a communal view. Some hopeless mangina chimed in approving it. The person who shared was patient enough to explain and to the credit of the lady she accepted the explanation. I post the screenshot for your edification. She was just triggered by the word Hindu, that automatically meant communal prejudice. Such is our reality.

`I hate Hindus, wanted to spark communal tensions' NEW TWIST IN LEATHER BAG STORY   Two months after claiming harassment by an auto driver over his office bag, Barun Kashyap sings a different tune during custodial interrogation; political conspiracy angle being probed too Film executive Barun Kashyap, who sparked a huge controversy in August after claiming that an auto driver bullied him accusing him of using a bag made of cowhide, spun a web of lies to disrupt communal harmony in Mumbai. This sensational revelation came during Kashyap's interrogation in police custody. In a confessional statement, Mirror accessed a copy, the creative director with a media house said his `hatred for Hindus' prompted him to come up with the story. “I accept that I lied about the entire incident. No such incident ever took place. My Facebook post was a lie,“ reads the statement. To questions by cops about the reason for such a bluff, the 24-year-old said, “I lied because have hatred towards Hindus.“ According to the police, Kashyap's intention was to play victim to gau rakshaks (cow vigilantes) and share his `plight' to disrupt communal harmony in Mumbai as well as across the country. In a complaint to the D N Nagar police on August 19, Kashyap, who lives opposite the Infinity Mall in Andheri, said he boarded an auto for his office around 11 am. During the commute, the professional said, the driver said his leather bag was stinking and asked if it was made of cowhide. Despite telling that it was camel skin, the autowallah stopped the three-wheeler at some place and returned with three men who heck led him, Kashyap alleged. “Aaj toh bach gaye [you were saved today],“ he told the cops quoting the men. The film executive, who hails from Assam, also narrated the incident in a Facebook post, raising a storm and putting immense pressure on the government to act.Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had then said that the culprits won't be spared. WHAT WENT AGAINST KASHYAP As the police began to investigate Kashyap's allegations, they found that the film executive left home at 1 pm, not 11 am as claimed by him, and took nine minutes to reach his office. “We collected footage of CCTV cameras installed on the entire stretch. We discovered that it was a smooth ride and the auto did not stop even for a minute. It was beyond doubt that he had lied to us.That is why we registered a case against him,“ said Deven Bharti, joint commissioner of police (law and order). POLITICS BEHIND THE SCRIPT? The police are also probing if Kashyap's allegations were part of a political conspiracy. “The fact that after the case was registered against Barun, he approached Aam Aadmi Party leader Priti Sharma Menon and stayed at her Chembur home for two days indicates a lot of things.The question is why he approached a political party for legal assistance.Was this a pre-planned agenda,“ asked a senior police officer. CHARGE SHEET SOON The Amboli police, which probed the case, are likely to file the charge sheet in a few days, said sources.Kashyap, who was arrested on October 4 and is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison, has been booked under section 153A (promoting enmity between groups) and 182B (for use of lawful power of a public servant to injure or annoy any person) of the Indian Penal Code. If convicted by a court, he can face jail up to five years. Sources said the cops will also record the statement of the #AAP leader. http://ift.tt/2e9fPQt

No such incident ever took place. My Facebook post was a lie,“ reads the statement. To questions by cops about the reason for such a bluff, the 24-year-old said, “I lied because have hatred towards Hindus.“ According to the police, Kashyap's intention was to play victim to gau rakshaks (cow vigilantes) and share his `plight' to disrupt communal harmony in Mumbai as well as across the country. In a complaint to the D N Nagar police on August 19, Kashyap, who lives opposite the Infinity Mall in Andheri, said he boarded an auto for his office around 11 am. During the commute, the professional said, the driver said his leather bag was stinking and asked if it was made of cowhide. Despite telling that it was camel skin, the autowallah stopped the three-wheeler at some place and returned with three men who heck led him, Kashyap alleged. “Aaj toh bach gaye [you were saved today],“ he told the cops quoting the men. The film executive, who hails from Assam, also narrated the incident in a Facebook post, raising a storm and putting immense pressure on the government to act.Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had then said that the culprits won't be spared. WHAT WENT AGAINST KASHYAP As the police began to investigate Kashyap's allegations, they found that the film executive left home at 1 pm, not 11 am as claimed by him, and took nine minutes to reach his office. “We collected footage of CCTV cameras installed on the entire stretch. We discovered that it was a smooth ride and the auto did not stop even for a minute. It was beyond doubt that he had lied to us.That is why we registered a case against him,“ said Deven Bharti, joint commissioner of police (law and order). POLITICS BEHIND THE SCRIPT? The police are also probing if Kashyap's allegations were part of a political conspiracy. “The fact that after the case was registered against Barun, he approached Aam Aadmi Party leader Priti Sharma Menon and stayed at her Chembur home for two days indicates a lot of things.The question is why he approached a political party for legal assistance.Was this a pre-planned agenda,“ asked a senior police officer. CHARGE SHEET SOON The Amboli police, which probed the case, are likely to file the charge sheet in a few days, said sources.Kashyap, who was arrested on October 4 and is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison, has been booked under section 153A (promoting enmity between groups) and 182B (for use of lawful power of a public servant to injure or annoy any person) of the Indian Penal Code. If convicted by a court, he can face jail up to five years. Sources said the cops will also record the statement of the #AAP leader. http://ift.tt/2e9fPQt

5 times Rajdeep Sardesai was absolutely decimated while recording an interview

5 times Rajdeep Sardesai was absolutely decimated while recording an interview http://ift.tt/2gannFG Controversial journalist Rajdeep Sardesai who currently is working with the India Today group, has interviewed many celebrities and VIPs in his career but in most of the instances, the guests objected to Rajdeep’s attitude, his mannerisms and choice of questions. This side of Rajdeep again came into public limelight after former President Pranab Mukherjee chastised him during a recent interview. In this interview which aired on 13th October, Rajdeep is seen asking a question, but rather than patiently seeking a reply he kept interrupting Mr Mukherjee. This angered the former president who then took Rajdeep to task, which included asking him to have the necessary courtesy while conducting the interview. All this left Rajdeep fumbling for an apology: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18erXrUa2k8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64iPYoCTWRo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFOXpAldxUU https://twitter.com/DesiStuffs/status/919079840526909440

There is an urgent need to take stock of make in India. Make in India is one of the most critical initiatives undertaken by the Modi govt. it is vital that it be implimented at top speed not just to attain strategic autarky but also to CREATE vitally neededJOBS. to see where this project is and what are the impedences it is encountering from the entrenched bureaucracy of the Public sector- IMR team visited Bharat Forge at Pune.it was a privilege to meet and have frank discussions with BABA Kalyani- The visionary who has single handedly pursued a vision to make a 155 gun in India. the great news is that between him and DRDO we have finally produced a WORLD Beater gun that can fire out to 48 kms range , has a 6 round Burst fire capability and electric propulsion. India has indigenously produced the worlds best 155 gun. We now rapidly need to get this gun in service before the Chinese get to Doklam again!!we need to produce 200 - 300 such guns per year to fill the gaps created over last 30 years by the Bofors scandal. This is the one project that Nirmala Sitaraman must push with the GREATEST vigour to ACTUALISE the make in India concept and take it from pure THEORY to Reality.

Profiling Narendra Modi’s Critics – The Deep Chronicles – Medium

http://ift.tt/2xVuhZB Profiling Narendra Modi’s Critics Note: This is a guest article by Sri Narasimha. India’s honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the person people love to hate. Of course he does have his supporters and his sympathisers across all walks of life and demographics, particularly in non-urban places but the folks who own the presses and the airwaves, so to speak, dominate this emotion of hatred. I am a US citizen of Indian origin. I live and work in India for personal and professional reasons. I have `skin in the game’ here and want India to prosper. With that as background, I must first confess that I am both mystified and disturbed by what I see in India. The most appalling thing that I have observed among many Indians is this deep desire for India NOT to be strong. NOT to succeed. NOT to really change. Certainly NOT to win! I’m truly mystified by this self-loathing and overweening self-centredness, a fundamental inability to put the society and country ahead of personal or sectarian interests. Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Pic Courtesy: Google Image Search Categories of Modi Critics and Baiters Over the years, I have observed and met many Modi critics. These critics range from folks who either outright hate him or folks who are disappointed. In between, are a few other categories. 1. Professional Modi baiters: Essentially a variety of media persons and industry professionals who either did the brainwashing or were brainwashed about Modi being an evil person and point to the 2002 riots in Gujarat as evidence. Includes self-proclaimed leftists-liberals, supporters of the Congress party and its clones. Obviously, the political party ecosystem did the brainwashing. Many regular folks who got brainwashed will not change their minds. After all, it is easier to be fooled than to admit that you were fooled. 2. The aggrieved set: In this category are the folks who believe that the Hindu majority, over the last 70 years, has been marginalized by minority vote banks. They point to government control of Hindu temples, reservations and subsidies given to minorities as evidence of being systematically disenfranchised. The media has enabled and fuelled this picture by selective reportage of events and facts. By a variety of perception management tricks that preys on low critical thinking and built in prejudices, the media has demonized millions of ordinary folks while elevating others who suited their agenda. This category feels nothing has changed under Modi and feel let down by the first PM who conveys India and her civilizational pride. They see this social and legal distortion as the burning issue to be fixed and are losing hope that it will ever get fixed. 3. The closet `Singhis’: Overtly they say they support Modi as PM but have already decided that he has failed. These are not necessarily Congress party supporters but many well meaning folks who took pride in claiming that India had a PM who was an accomplished economist and decent human being. I have observed this pattern especially among a few smart, successful Sikhs who cannot digest the failure of Manmohan Singh as PM. This is clearly not about religion, it is just that a PM who was one of their own could have made them proud but ended his two terms being ridiculed and insulted. 4. The Status quo-ists: They have nothing against Modi personally but they hate him because he represents change. They see an orthogonal mind at work and a move toward structural disruption and this threatens their linear plans. Traders, Brokers, Industrialists, the Bureaucracy, and Intellectuals with preprogrammed DNAs who clearly found it easier to thrive under a predictable, venal arrangement. In this bucket are also people who like to claim that they are fair minded. `I actually want Modi to succeed but…’ is typically how they will start their narrative about how he can’t scale from a CM to a PM and how he needs to carry people with him and not be so autocratic. And with confirmation bias, they cherrypick slanted statistics. 5. Short-rope snipers: While they have given Modi a rope, it is very short and on the other hand they hold a sniper’s rifle. These are typically very smart academics and think tank types who are willing to hold their noses for some time only because they recognize that India was made ungovernable between 2012 and 2014. This category also includes folks who think he is a `vernie’ (someone who studied in a vernacular medium) and lacks the western sophistication. These snobs don’t fool me because I used to be one of them. Their mantra is `Not that we love Modi less but we love Raghuram Rajan more’ and includes economists and commentators on India’s economy. This group has a fantastic intellectual capacity but is theoretical in its approach. Most of them have never run anything in their lives, leave alone a turnaround situation. Their filters are macro and super macro. The types who are now saying `I too wished things would get better but you know I told you so, winning an election and running a government are different things’. 6. The Chatterati: This category has the glorious inheritors among in its club. They belong to tabloids and an assortment of institutions that exist only because of loyalty to some political dispensation. They have created halos around themselves through systematic PR. They are the celebrities whose only achievement is celebrityhood. This group prescribes what Modi should say, what he should wear and what he should do and not do. They even comment on the Defence and the Economy ! 7. The Glitterati: Bollywood, and a few of the assorted `woods’ of India that are still unable to coin an original name for themselves and have a deep and long history of aligning themselves with the Modi baiters. From time to time, they smell the coffee and attempt to pay lip service to Modi’s governance. It does not take a lot for the façade to slip. A shout out from one of their pet categories about a crime and they quickly line up to blame Modi for creating an environment where `free speech’ is being trampled upon. 8. The Bitterati: Former Modi supporters who were hoping for some role in the government but have lost hope of getting anything. These are the folks who can easily put the nation ahead of themselves, and often struggle to do so, but the deep down, ambition gets the better of them. This includes politicians, former star CEOs, academicians, authors. They have allowed their feelings of self-aggrandisement transcend their feelings for the country. Among some, this bitterness is turning to schadenfreude. 9. The Forwarders: Urban India has millions of this category working in a typical corporate environment. Their world view is shaped by snatches of newspaper reading and TV and typically have that dangerous `half knowledge’ about most things. They will then troll social media for articles or commentary that confirms their bias and do their bit for the country by forwarding material and `Liking’ what they forward. They latch onto keywords like `Bhakt’ and paint Modi as someone who `spins’ achievements. And then go after his supporters viciously by denigrating their intelligence. 10. The insiders: As history has taught us, the one to fear the most is the enemy within. There are many in Modi’s party who will not want him to succeed. The fact that he is streets ahead of them in political astuteness, geopolitical vision and influence and in outcome-oriented governance makes them insecure. There are survival issues for them as well as issues of growth within the party and the government. When merit becomes the watchword in a feudal ethos, picture the panic. The simple fact is that many of these folks agree that Modi is honest. They will broadly agree that he works hard even while pointing out that he travels too much. Pushed to the wall, they will even agree that his intent and commitment are strong. They will further ventilate that India is a mess and point to other countries (ah see Singapore!) as role models. Further, they know deep down that the earlier dispensation put the country in the Intensive Care Unit. They recognise that transmission of policy and governance sits on a complex, self-serving bureaucratic machine that can’t be wished away or transformed overnight. They frequently shout about how much India is divided on various lines, over centuries. Now these same folks can see that many macro parameters are in India’s favor. They can see the strength of the Indian rupee after years of free fall. They can spend more time, do some independent research and understand the bottom up efforts being delivered through targeted governance. But they will not give Modi an honest chance. They will not say `Finally we have a person of integrity who cares about our nation, who works hard and is getting folks around him to work hard, who is trying to make a difference, who has inherited a horrible situation, who has accepted that he could make mistakes, has reached out for ideas and help, who needs our support, our encouragement and reasonable time to repair the destruction’. I wonder why.

Inside the Hate-Modi Industry | OPEN Magazine

http://ift.tt/2fVOMvl Journalists often aim to change things through their work, which is also a revolution of sorts. My Leftist friend considers the Sangh Parivar his enemy and wants to see it routed, at least democratically. But when this desire starts clouding one’s judgement as a media professional, then it becomes problematic. The visceral hatred for one man who is now the Prime Minister of India is making many observers of politics lose their objectivity and sense of proportion. In their desperation to see Modi on his knees, they find meanings where none exists. They experience unwarranted euphoria over insignificant victories such as the ABVP losing a seat in Delhi University student’s union election; they are even willing to hear bugles of war in Rahul Gandhi’s Berkeley speech. It is not as if before 2014 the roads in India were paved with gold and that milk flowed through its rivers. It is not as if previous governments had done wonders for the welfare of the poor and marginalised. Of course this government has problems and one of them has been intimidation in the name of cow vigilantism. Of course the Modi dispensation needs to be called out on promises that have turned out to be hollow. In other words, roads in India are not paved with gold and no milk flows through its rivers even after 2014. But reporting this has to be done realistically without spelling a constant sense of doom and without conveying this impression that Modi is personally supervising an imagined Armageddon. Biases and hate crimes against Dalits, for example, have existed since the very beginning; farmers have committed suicide for years; law-and-order has been non-existent in many parts and continues to remain so; there has always been tension with Pakistan. Nobody, including Modi, has a magic wand to make these things disappear even if he and other leaders before him have given us such an impression. Journalists doing their job must nevertheless highlight the failings of this government. But it should not feel as if we have his voodoo doll inside our drawers into which pins must be stuck every day. It is sometimes vital to take a step back and look at how certain things have worked for Modi even as most of us predicted that they would prove to be his Achilles heel. It is okay to be anti- authority, but that should not be only because there is a particular man at the helm of affairs. The idea is to write about the wrong policies of any government, not to hold meetings on how to bring it down CONSIDER DEMONETISATION. We have written and spoken about it extensively. We have shot videos of long queues outside banks and of marketplace gloom with our cellphone cameras. We still don’t know the long- term effects of this decision, but it also needs to be recognised that Modi’s BJP has scored a spectacular win in UP despite the disruption caused. This should make us pause and wonder if we are disconnected from how the people of this country think. Somehow Modi has managed to convince people that this is going to pinch the rich more than the poor. He has managed to impress upon them that he seeks no personal gain, that he has no Robert Vadra in his family who requires fancy bikes and cycles and expensive SPG cover, but only a mother who wears a worn sari and whom he goes to meet occasionally. Instead, some of us seem to have turned antagonism towards Modi into a sort of spectator sport without realising that Modi would not be who he is if he was not hated so much. A journalist friend speaks of her colleague who, while travelling through UP, would ask for her driver’s opinion on demonetisation and when told he had a good feeling about it, shouted at him for being so ‘ignorant’. Earlier in September, Pratik Sinha, founder of AltNews, a website that exposes fake news, published a clarification over a post put up by former police officer, Sanjiv Bhatt, a known critic of Modi. Bhatt had claimed that believers were stopped from offering prayers at the Sidi Saiyyed mosque in Ahmedabad when Modi accompanied Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe there on a visit. Presenting evidence that no such thing had happened, Sinha writes: ‘It is absolutely irresponsible on part of those who circulate such rumours on social media without cross-checking facts. Such rumours lead to communal polarisation. As it is, we are living in times when the strife between various religious/cultural communities is alarmingly high. We do not need social media rumours to further magnify this divide.’ Immediately afterwards, Sinha was trolled on social media, with many telling him that Bhatt and he were on the same side and that they should not be fighting among themselves but with their ‘common enemy’. One Modi critic went on to tell him that he was growing too big for ‘your boots’. Sinha had faced similar criticism for taking on the Left activist Shehla Rashid for asking a TV reporter to “get out” from the parking lot of the Delhi Press Club where she was making a political speech. We have written and spoken about demonetisation extensively. We still don’t know the long-term effects of this decision, but it also needs to be recognised that Modi’s BJP has scored a spectacular win in UP despite the disruption caused Modi bashers often use a term, ‘Godi media’, for those who they think sit in the proverbial lap of this government, doling out a favourable narrative of its efforts and achievements. But they sometimes forget that they themselves have become ‘Goop media’, turning to jelly whenever they try looking at the failings of non- BJP politics. Before her death, Gauri Lankesh had tweeted, ‘Ok some of us commit mistakes like sharing fake posts. Let us warn each other then. And not try to expose each other. Peace...comrades’ [apparently referring to photoshopped pictures of a Lalu Prasad rally which some had shared].

What Sudha Murthy did when called the "Cattle Class" at Heathrow Airport - Untold Story of India

Last year, I was at the Heathrow International Airport in London about to board a flight. Usually, I wear a sari even when I am abroad, but I prefer wearing a salwar kameez while travelling. So there I was — a senior citizen dressed in typical Indian apparel at the terminal gate. Since the boarding hadn’t started, I sat down and began to observe my surroundings. The flight was bound for Bengaluru and so I could hear people around me chatting in Kannada. I saw many old married couples of my age — they were most likely coming back from the US or UK after helping their children either through childbirth or a new home. I saw some British business executives talking to each other about India’s progress. Some teenagers were busy with the gadgets in their hands while the younger children were crying or running about the gate. After a few minutes, the boarding announcement was made and I joined the queue. The woman in front of me was a well-groomed lady in an Indo-Western silk outfit, a Gucci handbag and high heels. Every single strand of her hair was in place and a friend stood next to her in an expensive silk sari, pearl necklace, matching earrings and delicate diamond bangles. I looked at the vending machine nearby and wondered if I should leave the queue to get some water. Suddenly, the woman in front of me turned sideways and looked at me with what seemed like pity in her eyes. Extending her hand, she asked, ‘May I see your boarding pass, please?’ I was about to hand over my pass to her, but since she didn’t seem like an airline employee, I asked, ‘Why?’ ‘Well, this line is meant for business class travellers only,’ she said confidently and pointed her finger towards the economy class queue. ‘You should go and stand there,’ she said. I was about to tell her that I had a business class ticket, but on second thoughts, held back. I wanted to know why she had thought that I wasn’t worthy of being in the business class. So I repeated, ‘Why should I stand there?’ She sighed. ‘Let me explain. There is a big difference in the price of an economy and a business class ticket. The latter costs almost two and a half times more than . . .’I think it is three times more,’ her friend interrupted. ‘Exactly,’ said the woman. ‘So there are certain privileges that are associated with a business class ticket.’ ‘Really?’ I decided to be mischievous and pretended not to know. ‘What kind of privileges are you talking about?’ She seemed annoyed. ‘We are allowed to bring two bags but you can only take one. We can board the flight from another, less-crowded queue. We are given better meals and seats. We can extend the seats and lie down flat on them. We always have television screens and there are four washrooms for a small number of passengers.’ Her friend added, ‘A priority check-in facility is available for our bags, which means they will come first upon arrival and we get more frequent flyer miles for the same flight.’ ‘Now that you know the difference, you can go to the economy line,’ insisted the woman. ‘But I don’t want to go there.’ I was firm. The lady turned to her friend. ‘It is hard to argue with these cattle-class people. Let the staff come and instruct her where to go. She isn’t going to listen to us.’ I didn’t get angry. The word ‘cattle class’ was like a blast from the past and reminded me of another incident. One day, I had gone to an upscale dinner party in my home city of Bengaluru. Plenty of local celebrities and socialites were in attendance. I was speaking to some guests in Kannada, when a man came to me and said very slowly and clearly in English, ‘May I introduce myself ? I am . . .’ It was obvious that he thought that I might have a problem understanding the language. I smiled. ‘You can speak to me in English.’ ‘Oh,’ he said, slightly flabbergasted. ‘I’m sorry. I thought you weren’t comfortable with English because I heard you speaking in Kannada.’ ‘There’s nothing shameful in knowing one’s native language. It is, in fact, my right and my privilege. I only speak in English when somebody can’t understand Kannada.’ The line in front of me at the airport began moving forward and I came out of my reverie. The two women ahead were whispering among themselves, ‘Now she will be sent to the other line. It is so long now! We tried to tell her but she refused to listen to us.’ When it was my turn to show my boarding pass to the attendant, I saw them stop and wait a short distance away, waiting to see what would happen. The attendant took my boarding pass and said brightly, ‘Welcome back! We met last week, didn’t we?’ ‘Yes,’ I replied. She smiled and moved on to the next traveller. I walked a few steps ahead of the women intending to let this go, but then I changed my mind and came back. ‘Please tell me, what made you think that I couldn’t afford a business class ticket? Even if I didn’t have one, was it really your prerogative to tell me where I should stand? Did I ask you for help?’ The women stared at me in silence. ‘You refer to the term “cattle class”. Class does not mean possession of a huge amount of money,’ I continued, unable to stop myself from giving them a piece of my mind. ‘There are plenty of wrong ways to earn money in this world. You may be rich enough to buy comfort and luxuries, but the same money doesn’t define class or give you the ability to purchase it. Mother Teresa was a classy woman. So is Manjul Bhargava, a great mathematician of Indian origin. The concept that you automatically gain class by acquiring money is an outdated thought process.’ I left without waiting for a reply. http://ift.tt/2fOxhQo

BSF’s Operation Arjun targets border farms, homes of Pak officers - Times of India

The Border Security Force's use of targeted firepower on farms and residences of Pakistan's serving and former army officers near the border resulted in Pakistan suing for peace. Codenamed 'Operation Arjun', the measure has seen BSF framing a robust response to Pakistan's use of snipers to kill jawans, besides firing on civilians and shelling villages along the border over the last month. The border force's counter-offensive on Pakistan's pain points saw the latter seek a ceasefire three days ago. BSF has particularly targeted farms and residences of retired Pakistan army, ISI and Pakistan Rangers officers who have been given land near the Indian border to facilitate their task of guiding infiltration and providing logistical help in anti-operations India, top sources said. Following the BSF action, Pakistan Rangers' Punjab DG Maj Gen Azgar Naveed Hayat Khan called BSF director K K Sharma twice last week requesting a stop to the firing. Read this story in Gujarati Sharma lodged a strong protest on Pakistan's unprovoked firing causing loss of life and property of civilians. The first call to Sharma was made on September 22, while the two DGs spoke again on Monday. Sharma told Khan that his junior, Lt Col Irfan, commanding officer of 12 Chenab Rangers, had the tendency of acting in a provocative manner, raising the risk of retaliation. As part of 'Operation Arjun', the BSF used small, medium and area weapons, causing heavy damage on the Pakistani side and the death of seven Pakistan Rangers personnel and 11 civilians. Several border outposts and structures of Pakistan army and Rangers were destroyed using long-range 81 mm weapons. http://ift.tt/2fxRgD7

India’s cheer group in Pakistan clash: Korea war veterans

India’s cheer group in Pakistan clash: Korea war veterans http://ift.tt/2fnDcs6 Kim Twan-hae has a fascinating story to narrate. The 91-year-old’s memory has understandably faded a bit. But on the topic of the Korean War, it remains sharp as ever. He says he was leading the South Korean troops who were trying to push back the North Korean army from entering Incheon, when bullets pierced through his upper body. “Two. Here and here,” he says, pointing towards his chest and right shoulder. Kim waited nearly two-and-a-half hours for the medics to arrive. But none did. He looked up one last time and closed his eyes, not knowing if he would be able to open them again. But just when he gave up, he saw an unfamiliar face charging towards him. The only way he could understand the man was not a threat was because of his uniform — a white coat. The next thing he remembers is waking up 48 hours later in an army medical tent near Seoul, with his ‘saviour’ standing next to him. “The man who saved me was an Indian. He was a part of the medical unit that was headed by Colonel Rangaraj. But to me, he was an angel,” Kim says. On Thursday, Kim, along with a hundred other war veterans and their families, cheered the Indian hockey side in their group stage match of the Incheon Asian Games against Pakistan. The motley group was easily outnumbered and out-voiced by the 3,000-odd Pakistani fans at the Seonhak Hockey Stadium. But waving the tri-colour and proudly chanting “Indo!” every time Sardar Singh & Co. moved forward, these war veterans stood out in the crowd. Kil Eun Young, an officer with the Korean ministry of patriots and veteran affairs — a government arm that looks after its war heroes — says this was their “way to show gratitude to the Indian people for supporting South Korea during the war”. “Many people are not aware of India’s contribution (in the war). The medical unit headed by Col Rangaraj fearlessly rushed to the aid of wounded soldiers in middle of a fierce crossfire. They didn’t care for their lives and it was admirable because they were fighting for the cause of a country which was not theirs,” Young says. During the Korean War in 1950, the Indian army had provided a medical unit to tend the sick and wounded soldiers. The 627-member 60 Parachute Field Ambulance unit served in Korea for a total of three-and-a-half years (November 1950-May 1954), which Young informs is the longest single tenure by any military unit under the UN flag. “Had it not been for the devoted services and sacrifices of the Indian people, Korea would not have become what it is today,” Young added.

Mass grave of 28 Hindus killed by Rohingyas found: Myanmar army - Times of India

http://ift.tt/2firSh1 Myanmar's army said today that a mass grave of 28 Hindus had been discovered in violence-wracked Rakhine state, blaming the killings on #Muslim Rohingya militants. The announcement could not be independently verified in an region that has been seized by communal violence since Rohingya militant raids on August 25 triggered a sweeping security crackdown. "Security members found and dug up 28 dead bodies of Hindus who were cruelly violently and killed by ARSA extremist Bengali terrorists in Rakhine State," a statement posted on the army chief's website said. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) is the group whose attacks on police posts triggered an army backlash so brutal that the UN believes it amounts to ethnic cleansing of the Muslim minority. More than 430,000 #Rohingya have fled the region to Bangladesh in under a month. Some 30,000 #Hindus and #Buddhists based in the area have also been displaced, with some saying were terrorised by Rohingya militants. The army said that security officers found 20 dead women and eight men in the graves, including six boys under the age of ten.

On The Front Foot: Uttar Pradesh Police Turns Up The Heat On Criminals

On The Front Foot: Uttar Pradesh Police Turns Up The Heat On Criminals http://ift.tt/2xQlf0C The law-and-order situation in Uttar Pradesh is seeing a turnaround with the state police having upped the ante against criminals. Although the situation is still far from satisfactory, the Yogi approach appears to be making an impact already. For a police force which has gained notoriety for invariably arriving late on the scene, residents in the capital city of Lucknow were in for a pleasant surprise on Wednesday (13 September). A large police party comprising of force drawn from two police stations, intercepted a gang of five who were on their way to commit a robbery at a grocery merchant’s house in Ghazipur area. In the ensuing exchange of fire between the gangsters and the police, two members of the gang, Rehan and Anwar, received bullet injuries. The duo along with Tauseef, Sadiq and Vikas were arrested from the scene. All five are history sheeters with about half a dozen charges including the National Security Act (NSA) slapped against them.

Sign the Petition

Petition: All Religious conversion should be done in front of Sub Divisional Magistrate under oath http://ift.tt/2habbsm In India if anyone has to change any portion of their public record such as Name, Spelling of Name, Status, Marriage, Divorce, Relationship, denouncement, Power of Attorney etc they must submit an application and appear in front of SDM (Sub Divisional Magistrate) and take oath that they are making this change without any fear or any undue pressure. However only religious conversions do not follow this practice. Christian missionaries take advantage of this loophole and try to convert people using fear, fraud, allurement and money. Sub Divisional; Magistrates are empowered to issue various kinds of statutory certificates including SC/ST & OBC, Domicile, Nationality etc. Registration of Property documents, sale deeds, power of attorneys, share certificates and all other documents which need to be compulsorily registered as per law is made at Sub Registrar's Office which are nine in numbers. To ensure safety of Indian Citizens We ask Government of India to make it mandatory that all religious conversions follow the same process and should be done in front of Sub Divisional Magistrate. This way people of India would be assured that no fraud based or fears based conversions are happening in INDIA. This change will also ensure that government benefits are given properly and public records are correct
