DEFENCE


BLOG
I am not an expert in matters relating to Defence, but I do read as to what is being generally reported in certain section of media.

In the last few years, Armed Forces seem to have been sidelined on many issues, including hierarchy, though; Armed Forces have always been leading from the front.

In the last about a decade and the first time in independent, India under current Defence Minister!!
Army Chief has rebelled.
Ex-Air force Chief has been charge sheeted.
Naval Chief has quit before completion of his term.

The story of young officers laying down their life leading from the front is also among the common theme running across most recent naval mishaps. Lt Commander Kapish Muwal and Lt Manoranjan Kumar also died heroically aboard INS Sindhuratna.Commander Kuntal Wadha, chief engineer-designate of INS Kolkotta who was killed in accident recently. (TOI)
India has the second largest standing Army in the world, though it is miserably short of hardware. As per norms, we should have War Wastage Reserves for 40 days of intense fighting whereas India has it only for less than 20 days. According to a statement by the COAS (TOI 24/3/14), India will have 50% WWR by 2015 and will complete it by 2019.What has the Govt been doing for last ten years remains a mystery.
China and Pakistan must be readying the best defence strategies against a weakening Indian defence forces. Gwadar port in Baluch has been handed over to China by Pakistan. China completes encirclement of India, Coco Island, Burma, Hamanthota, SriLanka and now Gwadar.

Pakistan still claims part of J&K as its territory.
China still claims Arunachal Pradesh as its territory.
Islamist outfit Shahadat-e al-Hikima, formed in Feb 2003, has been propagating West Bengal as a part of Bangladesh.

We have believed in a lot of crap for years about Aman-Ki-Asha and Hindi –Chini-Bhai-Bhai. Some in Pakistan must be feeling that one “AMAN” might exploit “ASHA”. We must be naive to believe that Pakis or Chinis believe in these slogans. They do not.
Interestingly, or shall we say, surprisingly, India’s China policy is driven by Ministry of External Affairs and China Study group and not by the Military.
In the midst of all this, Indian foreign minister terms Chinese intrusions as “ACNE”
India’s integrity is being undermined by three global networks that have well-established operating bases inside India: (i) Islamic radicalism linked with Pakistan, (ii) Maoists and Marxist radicals supported by China via intermediaries such as Nepal, and (iii) Dravidian and Dalit identity separatism being fostered by the West in the name of human rights……(.Breaking India )by Rajeev Malhotra
Let us hope, in coming days and years, Indian defence forces get complete support from the Government in power.

Let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.

S/B ACCOUNT





I am not an economist. I am a simple middle class man and I feel my money isn’t being used for mine or society’s benefit.

In the last decade or so, we have heard of unbelievable numbers running into thousands of Cr of Rs of corruption. Some important and comparative large numbers go unnoticed or get accepted as a fate accompli.

As per a report (in 2005) prepared by Division of Theoretical Statistics and Mathematics and Department of Statistics, The University of Akron,USA............
There are 320 million (32cr) savings bank account holders in India which have deposits of Rs 472,147 Cr.

As per RBI rules; each savings bank account holder must maintain a minimum balance of Rs 1000 each. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? It is 32x1000 =equals a staggering sum of Rs32000 cr. At any given point of time, Govt is sitting on this huge sum of money which is essentially that of middle class. The balance in savings bank accounts earn an interest of 3.5% which is effectively app. 2.8% as interest is paid on the minimum balance between 10th and the month end. Considering a rate of inflation at 13%, who are they fooling with 2.8% interest?  It is the same middle class who asks and deserves a subsidy in essentials, but, is taught basics of economy. Banks are borrowing at 2.8% and lending the same money at over 10% to those who are converting this money into NPAs
.
Incidentally, a Current Account holder has to maintain a minimum quarterly average balance of Rs 5000.Normally,every business, small or big, holds a current account .Hypothetically, if current account holders are even half(it may actually twice as much) of saving bank account holders....It is a wooping sum of Rs 80,000 cr.

As per commodityonline.net, Non performing assets or bad loans of 40 listed banks jumped by 38% or around Rs 35,424 Cr in the first six months of current financial year ending Sept2013.According to a study by NPAsources.com, as on 31st March, net NPAs of 40 listed banks were Rs 93109 Cr which rose to Rs 128533 Cr as on Sept 2013
.
Why is middle class always a victim of Govt policies?

2014.A DECISIVE YEAR




Election fever is at its peak which could be a decisive factor in strengthening or weakening of India democracy.
In 65 odd years, we haven’t had a responsive and reactive Govt for welfare of common man. Each successive govt has treated politics as business and calculated ROI on its investment. With Indian media available 24x7, man on the street is aware of the going on in the govt on corruption, back room deals, beaurocratic appointments, messing up our international borders etc. India is asking questions. Will the parties and their respective PM candidates..Kejriwal, Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi stand up and tell us of their...VISION OF INDIA?

Mr Kejriwal...
Can we depend on you when you decide to dump those who relied on you after 49 days of being in power, most of which was spent agitating? Do you recall, your entire campaign was focused on corruption and you claimed to have had proof against Sheila Dixit, Electricity, and Water? You have not disclosed sources of alleged foreign funding to your party. Can we leave India’s Governance in your hands?
Mr Kejriwal, is this your vision of India?

Mr Rahul Gandhi...
We accept, you have not been named congress PM candidate. However, should a situation arise, no one in congress will build up guts to stake claim for the top job.
How long will you take to change the system of which your family has been a part of for 55 years, which you keep blaming for all the ills in the country? We appreciate the sacrifices your family has made, but, isn’t it time to stop talking of sacrifices your last five generations and think and talk of prosperity India’s next five?
Should you form a Govt; will you free CBI of govt control and allow unbiased investigations? Will we see cabinet decisions being nonsensensed during a presser? In last ten years, you haven't spoken a single word on economic mess, foreign policy, border issues, governance and corruption. In support of Nirbhaya, thousands of youth were agitating, but, you were not visible. Do you have a road map to ensure constitutional institutions won't be undermined?  How would you handle a repeat of Cash for Votes situation arises again?  As per media reports, your attendance in Parliament has not been up to the mark nor have you asked any questions. Dr Singh can be blamed for the negatives of last ten years since he is the PM, truly, powers rested at 10JP.LPG quota was increased not in ministry, but on a dais. What contribution can one attribute to NAC in India’s governance or lack of it? What has been your policy for NE states? Perhaps, it is time to inform India of your agenda of minority appeasement? What good is an alleged spend of Rs 500 cr on image building if your senior members use words like Chaiwala,Napunsak,Yeda,Crushing media.?
 Mr Gandhi, Is this your vision of India?

Mr Narendra Modi...
Amongst number of aspirants from BJP, you have been named PM candidate. If voted to power, we hope you will not let down the nation. India is looking for serious Governance, corruption free approach, justice for one and all irrespective of caste, community, religion or region. India wants secured borders, friendly neighbours besides due respect for the Armed Forces, Police reforms and judicial reforms, joining of rivers, creation of medical and educational facilities and health benefits. Power sector needs a complete revamp. Every aspect of governance needs to be cleaned up.
India is in ICU.Parliament has been non functional. It needs a bloodless surgery. Mood of the nation is towards a drastic political change. Going by media reports, BJP is likely to emerge as the single largest party. India might give you an opportunity to form next Govt. If you do not perform and deliver, India will not forgive you.
Mr Modi, we are ready to accept your Vision of India.

Congress' dynastic politics has shattered the hopes & aspirations of people. Congress hides behind the veil of secularism whenever its governance falters and its misconduct is exposed. This will no longer go unchallenged. The younger generation will not accept these actions of Congress!

Law is an ass.
Law will take its own course.
Law will take its own course.
Everyone is equal in eyes of law.
CBI is a “Caged Parrot”.
Kanoon Ke Haath Bahut Lambe Hain. (I think it is TOONDA)
Haven’t we have heard these words and phrases so often that we have stopped believing in them?
Sanjay Dutt, having been convicted, is serving sentence in arms case. In less than three months, he has been granted parole twice, once for his treatment and second time for his wife’s treatment. Is it a coincidence that his sister, PriyaDutt, is a congress MP from North Bombay?
Manu Sharma of not so famous Jessica Lal case is serving life sentence. During his first parole, he was found partying in a Pub in Delhi. Once again, he has been granted Parole to appear for Human rights Exams (SIC). Is it a coincidence that his father is a congress MP?
Lalu Prasad Prasad Yadav has been convicted and is serving jail term in corruption case. In less than three months he is out on bail. Is it a coincidence that elections are round the corner and fresh alliances are being worked out?
 Rashid Masood is serving sentence in serious corruption case. He has been granted bail. Is it a coincidence that he is a congress MP?
 Remember Italian marine case? They allegedly shot Indian fishermen. While the trial was on, Italians were allowed to go home for Xmas festival. Italians. Does it ring a bell? What happened subsequently is history. India prisoners in Italy aren’t sent home for Diwali.
 Quttorochi of (in) famous Bofors gun case walked free. This case was unique which had set new standards in India history of corruption.
After Bhopal tragedy, Anderson was allowed to leave India overnight.
Purullia Arms dropping case is unique in its own context. Culprits have walked free.

Files containing details of Coal block allocation have gone missing. No FIR has been filed. Is it a coincidence that Coal ministry was under Man Mohan Singh?
About three fourths of total prisoners in India are under trials, says a new report by National social Watch, a network of civil society organisations.
It is time judicial reforms are implemented without delay and without India being made to suffer further. If the Government is serious, it can implement any change by way of an ordinance for which it needs political will.
Politics cannot be termed above human lives.

SECURITY.



SECURITY....................The state of being free from danger or threat"

In any country, security of its citizens, its internal security and its external security is of prime importance and responsibility of the Govt in power.

We, however, have made a joke of our security systems. One is curious as to why should elected representatives need security from its own people?

VIP security of our leaders (sic !!!!) could put a Ruler of any Sultanate to shame. When Indian VIPs move, en-route, city roads are blocked for traffic for them and their convoy. It is termed as VIP movement by the authorities. There have been instances when persons have lost their life unable to reach the hospital or have been denied entry to hospital while a PM has been visit.

It is laughable, Every time it’s a terror attack or a bomb blast, the security that of VIPs is tightened and not that of the common man.

Last year  while thousands young boys and girls  were protesting on the streets of in Delhi, against  Nirbhaya  rape case, it was the Chief Minister of Delhi whose security was increased and not that of the protesters. CM’s house was almost converted into a fortress. Having secured the CM, protesters, mostly young students, were lathi charged and water cannons were fired. So what? Our popularly elected CM hid behind secured security ring. Damn the common man and his security.

In the US, on 4th July, citizens are all over the town with US flags in hand celebrate Independence Day. It is celebration time for them. Come our Independence day, we are made to sit behind closed doors and high rise windows are kept shut to keep a check on sharp shooters and markets in that area are closed a day in advance so that the PM delvers his speech from behind bullet proof screen (Even though the content has been same for decades) from Red Fort.

Situation on the Republic day is no different. At the end of the three hours of India having shown its might to the world of its preparedness, state is unable to provide basic security to its helpless people.

It was 6th Dec when (unfortunately) Babri Masjid was demolished. Every year on that day the area is converted into a fortress with security forces all over the place. The Situation before 364 days and after 364 days from 6th Dec seems to be of little concern. Damn the common man during rest of the year.

It was 23rd Dec when Indian Parliament was terror attacked. Since then, all measures have been taken to increase security for the parliamentarians. Year after year, on this day huge promises are made for security for the man on the street. Instead, VIP security gets tightened
.
Muslims from Myanmar are crossing over to Hyderabad and are being sheltered. Instead of screening them, those giving shelter to illegal are being given security cover.Arent they a security risk?

Illegal crossing over from Bangladesh is now undisputed fact .Reportedly; BSF has been instructed not to fire on that crossing over.Arent they a security risk?

Are we, the citizens free from danger or threat? No, we are not. We are ourselves to be blamed for the state of affairs. Unless we make our concerns felt and our voice of reasoning heard loud enough, nothing will change.

They are not MASTERS and we are not SUBJECTS. Let us get over our colonial mind set.

SECULARISM???


Justice Hussain Attar of J&K HC said in a landmark judgment “India is not a Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist or Christian India. It is India which is born from the bosom of unrelenting struggle of millions of people”.

The most (mis) used word in Indian politics is SECULARISM. It is the Government which are secular and not the people, not the country.

Constitution of India adopted on 2nd Nov 1949, states India as a “Sovereign, Democratic Republic”

In November of 1948, while discussing draft constitution, Dr Ambedkar rejected an amendment to define India as “Secular, Federal and Socialist”.

The word “SECULAR” was added to the preamble in November of 1976.For those who may not remember, India was under emergency rule in 1976.In an extended session of Lok Sabha, the word SECULAR was added through 42nd amendment during dark days of emergency while all fundamental rights were suspended.

That was the beginning of the day India watched helplessly beginning of the criminal misuse of word SECULARISM.

90% of the Indians are secular. It is the 10% population comprising of politicians who are actually communal and are responsible for taking India on communal path. Every time one hears the word Secularism from these 10%, rest assured some communal pot has been kept on boil somewhere to create communal tension for some petty vote bank politics. They wait for an opportunity to divide society on religion. However, factually, there exists tensions between Hindus and Muslims, but, it’s important to know the cause which undoubtedly is 10% politicians. Vote is the net result after divide, divide and then sub divide.Some of their decisions,actions speak for themselves.

 Unfortunately, being anti majority is been projected as SECULARISM. Least one should do is to read actual meaning of SECULARISM in Oxford Dictionary.

Shamefully, they have reduced the discussion between COMMUNAL and SECULAR to a skull cap.

Karanataka congress President suggests that minority should take loans and not return.

Shahjahanpur administration has been instructed to change School timings for Fridays so that Muslim students can attend Jumma Namaz .

Kerala Govt has stopped mid day meals even to Hindus during the holy month of Ramazan.

Marriage laws have been amended, but, not for Muslims.

Land requisition has been redefined, but, Waqf property and Church land is excluded.

Right to education has been well worded so as to exclude minority institutions.

Efforts are on within the govt to start Islamic banking. It is being seen as a tool for religious conversions via bank loans

Efforts are on within the govt to move towards Sharia laws.

Shah Bano Case is still not forgotten. Court orders were dumped just to get SECULAR credentials.

An elected Chief Minister stated in an interview that he is a Hindu nationalist...Hell broke out.

There are those who are proud of being Christians, Muslims, Sikhs. But, being a proud Hindu is being Communal.

Why must it take years to arrest Shahi Imam of Jamma Masjid despite court orders to arrest him?

Constitution doesn’t allow reservations on religious basis, but in practice, do we follow that?

Minister for Minorities has suggested setting up commission for cases where Muslims have been sentenced.

Man on the street, colleague at work place, next door neighbour, movie goer, casual employer want to lead their lives without worrying about religion. They want to move on in  life hand in hand with all communities for nation building.

It is time Government allowed Amar Akbar Anthony to live in peace.
