"They say to write readable nonsense is a talent".....That proves I am talented.

For ten long disgusting years, a mirror was being shown to the blind held by the biased media and the pseudo seculars. And then, one day the mirror cracked
Victory in 2009, made Congress terribly arrogant, irresponsible and corrupt. Without exception, Constitutional bodies were compromised, be it Central Vigilance Committee (CVC), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Election Commission of India (EC). Even the Prime Minister’s Office was undermined when a Cabinet resolution was termed as nonsense. Congress made UPA a business house for itself for maximum profit.The Congress senior Ministers helped the party to finalise a healthy balance sheet and in the bargain, they got some crumbs to nibble as rewards. While they were digging into natural resources, the Central Government office caught fire, where important files went missing and the likes of Sanjaya Baru were writing books, while NGOs were made to haunt rivals, while editors and anchors were busy protecting the Congress, while Chinese were intruding, while Bangladeshis were crossing over, while Pakistan was firing, the Congress did not realise that mood of the nation has changed. They didn’t realise that senior most Ministers will either run away from elections or will lose deposits. Then Congress played its minority and secularism card, which boomeranged. In fact, they used the most foul language and anti national slogans against Narendra Modi. Moreover, the Union Minister for Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah said, “If Modi becomes the Prime Minister; “Kashmir will not be a part of India.” He is who has enjoyed all perks swearing upon Indian Constitution.
May 16 witnessed sunset of dynasty and dawn of new India.
Expectations are high with Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister. The Congress-led UPA Government has left a stink which needs immediate clean up. Economy is at its lowest. Industrial production is down. Job creation is a challenge. Inflation is uncontrollable. Subsidies on kerosene, diesel and fertilisers are a major issue. Interest rates have gone up. Income tax rates need to be streamlined. Relations with neighbours have been compromised at national risk. Pakistani LOC violations, illegal Bangladeshis and China at large are important security and foreign policy issues. Internal security is an issue of urgent attention. Civil Military ties are low; moral of the armed forces is low, though fighting fit. Securing borders is a priority. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi has innumerable challenges ahead of him which have to be attended to on war footing. Feeling of neglect amongst Hindus is serious matter of concern as much as minority appeasement is. Every Constitutional body has to be given reasonable independence. Police reforms, judicial reforms and electoral reforms should be high on agenda. While we can expect him to fight, we must know that no war is won by one man. Its time 120 cr + Indians join hands to fight for India lest some dynasty rise its head again which could be disastrous.
It is time we bridged the gaps created by previous Government in name of religion, caste, community and region.
Let us stand up for nation. India First.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

After a 2% education cess was imposed in  2004 on all Central Taxes, it was expected to collect 4-5000 Cr annually and the total amount will be used for mid day meal and education.
Considering the above estimates a massive sum of over Rs 50,000 Cr plus would have been collected by now.

Where is the money? What happened with the money?

This is what Ministry for HRD has to say... In Nov2007, MOS for human resource development, Fatmi informed Parliament on the basis of information provided by the department of revenue that Rs 4,159.39 cr, Rs 7,117.07 cr and Rs 9,037.23 cr had been collected as education cess for 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07, respectively. These figures are substantially different from the ones provided by the government’s official accountant, the Controller General of Accounts.

This is what CAG has to say. The 2% education cess, according to figures from the Controller General of Accounts, is Rs 5,557.58 cr in 2004-05, Rs 7,322.82 cr in 2005-06, and Rs 9,466.5 cr in 2006-07. To make matters a little more ambiguous, figures available with the HRD ministry show cess amount to be Rs 4,318.51 cr in 2004-05, and Rs 7,637.75 cr in 2005-06. For the year 2006-07, the HRD ministry only had figures till February - Rs 6,833 cr.

Education cess continues to be imposed but its utilization is unclear. There is no accountability about how the education cess has been used. The irony is that none of the ministry either Ministry of Finance or HRD is coming out with one clear figure. The total amount of cess collected seems to vary, depending on where the information is being given. 

The number of out-of-school children in India has fallen to 70 lakh in March 2006 from about 1.34 cr in July 2005, according to numbers compiled by states. The starting figure was compiled in a joint study by the government of India and independent market research agency Indian Market Research Bureau.(Apeejay Satya Education Research Foundation.)

This is what BBC has to here ( )
Since the RTE deadline passed on 31 March 2013, several states have been ordering non-complying private schools to close, shifting most of the children to government schools.

Officials in Punjab said they closed 1,170 schools, Haryana shut 713, while Tamil Nadu closed "a little more than 400" and Andhra Pradesh "not more than 400".

Baladevan Rangaraju, director of think tank India Institute, who has been monitoring media reports, has counted 2,692 schools shut and 17,871 at risk.He said states where schools were threatened with closure included Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra and Delhi. "It's our duty to close those schools that are not providing the best facilities, some don't have toilets or water," Punjab's additional state project director Parampal Kaur said.

 The Annual Survey of Education (ASER) also highlighted the shift to private education, with enrolment increasing from 19% in 2006 to 29% in 2013.

The state of affairs of the mid day meal is well known. Number of students died/fell ill after eating mid day meal in a number of states, says a lot. Don’t be surprised if contracts have been given to the loved ones, preferred class.

Those who contribute to the cess don’t care.
Those who it is meant for are not cared for.
So much for Right To education,
So much for Education Cess.
