D.I.G. Mishra under House-Arrest

 Gaddafis and Saddams of our country ? 

D.I.G.   D.D. Mishra has been under house arrest since he got discharged from CSMMU where the officials said they did not find any sign of mental illness in Mishra. The government has not given any statement officially about his condition or the reason behind his ‘house arrest’. Media is not allowed to talk to him and only family members can visit him.

After all, he raised his voice against  his superiors and powerful people in the government who were buying sub-standard equipment at a price higher than the market rate hence D.I.G.  Thakur of Lucknow had all good reasons to take him out from his office to the mental hospital and declare he was mentally unsound.

The “Maya of Mighty Mayawati” and the ” honest system ” of the state may force the rebellious DIG to very soon seek  help of the Mental Asylum which declared him mentally fit.

But the question is do we, thecitizens of the country,  not have the Right to know, why anOfficer of the DIG rank is suddenly under house-arrest and why is he not allowed to talk to the media, after he spoke out against the mismanagment in the state ?

Is this not Dictatorship? Is there any  difference between Muammar Gaddafi and Kumari Mayawati ?

The Might And The Maya of Mayawati

Get well soon, Deputy Inspector  General, D.D. Mishra !

In a press conference held on Friday, Nov 4th 2011, Deputy Inspector General (fire services) D. D. Mishra presented the register of the fire department’s control room and accused the entire U.P. government of being corrupt . He did not sign on the purchases instead put  remarks on the irregularities in the various purchases, he noticed in several files. He has written to the government to launch an inquiry into the illegal purchase of material for the fire department and is very sure that no action will take place. Instead he claimed life threat after the reports get published and believes  government will not leave any stones unturned to grab these files. He said he wanted to raise alarm and set example for other policemen that they  can also raise voice for citizens.
Mayawati will get me murdered,” Mishra said.

Right after this conference , DIG of Lucknow, D.K. Thakur reached Mishra’s office and said he had a word with him for two hours and he had to call Mishra’s daughter and experts from Chatrapati Sahuji Medical University as D.D. Mishra, according to him was “mentally unsound

In fact, we all are. Aren’t we ? Do we really bother to check who we elect as our Ministers? Sound-mind is he who would not only support corruption but also take his share out of it.
Mayawati, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh is one of the many “honest politicians” of our country on whom the CBI has filed case of disproportionate assets. and who knows not her  Rs 685 crore, Dalit Memorial in Noida which is a perfect example of dedication and responsibility towards her state people. Interestingly it includes her statue aswell and why not after all she does so much for her people.

Well, coming back to D.D. Mishra,only time well let us know how the Chief Minister would make him, mentally sound now.

Who killed Keenan Santos And Ruben Fernandes ?

20th October’ 2011 , a youth Keenan Santos was publicly stabbed to death and his friend Ruben Fernandes died 4 days after, suffering from wounds. They were attacked by a team of 20 goons when they defended their female friends, who were being teased. They were coming out of a restaurant in Andheri,Mumbai while this incident happened. The two young boys were accompanied by five other friends.

Police produced 21 accused in a court on 3rd November’11. But are these the only ones who actually killed Keenan and Ruben ?

What about those who were standing in tens and hundreds , viewing the tussle who did not even bother to inform the police, forget about intervening ?

In an interview , one of the female friend of Keenan and Ruben , who was present that day described how the spectators turned deaf ears , while these guys were being punished for opposing eve-teasing  and the girls were seeking help. She also mentioned , that even the restaurant people did not come to help , where the group used to frequently hang-out.

She explains , the Police Help-Line Number  – 100, kept busy throughout and that even after the culprits left the place no one came to even pick the guys up to the hospital.

 Can we just get away by blaming it all on the Police? How many are they in number? Do we need one police each by every citizen of the country ?  Can we get away by claiming the city is not safe for girls , out at night ? Where is our social responsibility ? Had the bigger culprits, “the scared and curious spectators” been responsible enough, chances are high, two young guys would have been alive , today.

News channels indicate, how 25000 plus people added their support on Facebook to seek justice for Keenan’s sacrifice. Is our responsibility just limited joining a community on social sites and demand for justice after the sufferings ? 

 Is it not time we be the change rather blaming our law and order system ?

To Be Auctioned-Dr Rajendra Prasad’s Rolex Watch !

Who will bid for Dr Rajendra Prasad’s  Gold Rolex Watch ?

On November 13th ‘ 2011 , India’s first President , Dr Rajendra Prasad’s  gold wristwatch would be on auction by Sotheby’s in Geneva. Estimated price of the 18k pink gold Rolex with India’s Map and the date of 26th January 1950, inscribed on the dial, is between Rs 1 – Rs 2 crore. The wristwatch was presented to him on the first Republic Day in 1950.

Retired professor and grand-daughter of  Dr Prasad, Tara Sinha  got a call from a British journalist who informed her that Sotheby’s official said neither Dr Prasad’s family nor the Indian Government contacted them yet. She has also learnt, the person giving this watch to Sotheby’s preferred anonymity.

While Tara Sinha remembers, in 1964, a watch of Dr.Prasad had been stolen from Old Sadaquat Ashram(Dr. Prasad’s House) in Patna, she is not sure if this is the same watch.

She has written letters to President Pratibha Patil, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, pleading them to stop the auction and bring the watch back. and has not got any satisfactory response from anywhere, as yet.

All She wants is the watch be given back to India as per the UNESCO charter of 1970, as the watch is a national property.

It might be too late when our rulers respond and India’s Self-Respect be auctioned publicly. What do we commoners expect from our political leaders, when they are least bothered about Nation’s Property, Pride and First President’s belongings ?
