Are Shoes selling real cheap in Dehradun ?

Some days back it was Arvind Kejriwal and today, 23rd January 2012, its Rahul Gandhi who faced similar agitation where an individual hurled shoe at Rahul while he was addressing a rally there. 

‘After – Incident’ stories remaining the same where the accused got caught by the cops and political leader stated the incident as ‘unfortunate ‘ . The eye catching fact is , these incidents have become so common these days that even the News Sites do not bother elaborating the news and end it in a line or two.

“Tonight Show With Jay Leno”-Leno’s controversial remark on Golden Temple.

On January 19’2012,the NBC Channel Chat Show, ‘ Tonight Show with Jay Leno’  again made the Indians,perticularly the Sikhs raise eyebrows not only in America and India but Worldwide as well. 

Jay Leno, the popular host showed an illuminated picture of Golden Temple of Amritsar as the summer home of Mitt Romney,  a rich businessman and politician  who making news these days for amassing wealth and evading rightful taxes.

This is not for the first time Jay Leno has crossed limits of humour while addressing the Sikh community. In 2007 in the same show he was criticized after he called Sikhs  ‘Diaper Heads’. But it does not seem to have any effect on him.

The American Sikh Community has protested against this but the point here is that Humour has its limits which American and British popular TV Show Hosts should realize. India always seems to be a soft-target for such humour where our religious and national sentiments are repeatedly hurt  and in return neither the concerned person seeks apology nor does he stop from repeating it.

What Gandhi did that Netaji Could Not!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

January 23rd 2012 – 116th Birth Anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

“Mahatma” Gandhi, famous for his non-violence movement world over and regarded as the father of the nation in India is the true hero who not only earned the respect and applause for freeing India from the shackles of British Empire but was an integral part of the then formed Congress Government post 15th August 1947. He became the ideology of then and now social and political paradigm in India and many countries around the world.

“Netaji” Subhash Chandra Bose, the terror for the then British Empire in India failed to earn love and respect among not only Indians but also among British allies, but has been able to acquire a strong follower base across EasternIndia and some Anti-British super powers.

What Netaji failed to do is try to please all and his nature of being ‘not politically correct’  because he was a leader and master of his will and couldn’t justify his action not to tell any story and his death in absentia did no good to highlight his achievement and perseverance to free India.

The point of difference between Gandhi and Netaji arose from not only their violence and non-violence ideologies but also from Netaji’s demand for complete freedom of India from the British in contrast to Gandhi’s want for independence in phases through dominion status. Truly, this is probably one of the reasons the British and a major section of the world powers were compassionate about Gandhiji and his ways as he could not harm them in anyway whereas Netaji was branded as a rebel against the ‘Her Majesty’. Gandhiji’s political moves and negotiations, much like the functioning of today’s government, did not earnIndia the deserved freedom, but was successful in receiving free India as a gift from the British.

Did the ‘Quit India Movement’ , acquired much later by the then All India Congress,  actually force the British to leave India or was it that the British were too scared to fight the Indian National Army and the Indian soldiers who had won many wars for the British. The Gorkha and the Sikh regiment had fought for the British and defeated the Japanese in Singapore then called Malaya. Could it be that Gandhi and Nehru merely became heroes for the next generation in India because when the British leftIndia, the All India Congress formed the Government and forced education boards to modify their syllabi and text books to paint images of their leaders as national heroes? Not their contributions are negligible, but are we not over-obsessed and highlight only their positives and not negatives. Why was Gandhiji shot by an Indian?

The government is keen on bringing back the Kohinoor from the British Government, but has never sought any information the British intelligence may have had about the forced exile or assassination of Subhash Chandra Bose  may be because that will reveal a lot of light on the then political situation in India, and will have dented images of many of our national heroes now.

The Congress Government is still in power, and probably that’s the reason that October 2nd is still a National Holiday whereas 23rd January not.  – Jai Hind

Shoe Attack on Kejriwal

Beat Up ! Slap ! Throw Ink ! Throw Chappals and Shoes !

All these actions seem to have become a trend in our country . Are these self – motivated or well-planned opposition attacks? It is only the attacker who knows it best.

On Saturday,21st of January’2012 similar incident was repeated in Dehradun while Team Anna member , Arvind Kejriwal was heading towards the stage to address the gathered crowd. Identified attacker, Kishan Lal threw his shoe towards Kejriwal. His explanation for attacking was his response to insensitive statment given by Anna Hazare when NCP leader , Sharad Pawar was slapped. Well,such repeated attacks on Leaders from various walks of  life, seem pre-planned and politicaly motivated rather than genuine agitations.

UP Elections-Season of Promises

As the dates of U.P. elections are nearing by , the more is louding up the “Trumpets of the Elephants”(BSP), “the Rings of the Cycle Bells”(SP),”the Claps of the Hands”(Congress) and the Beauty and “Incense of the Lotus flower”(BJP).

Reminders of developments (so what ? if just the parks and the statues ) by the ruling party is getting louder.

Other contesting parties also recall the surprise visits , they (their leader) made by suddenly barging into farmers house(of course with the media) for dinner and pretending to be disghusted with the present conditions of  the farmers( as if , if they win, will give bungalows to the farmers ).

And some would not talk what they did and what others did not but directly come to the point that if they win the elections, what gifts can the citizens expect.

The embarassing fact about Political Elections in our country  is, we are made to choose between the Bad, Worse and the Worst and once we select best of the lott, it is the Bad Party which turns Worst and the cycle goes on!
