Court frames charges against Irom Sharmila in 'Fast-Unto-Death' case

Better known as the Iron Lady of Manipur,Irom Sharmila, who has been on ‘fast-unto-death’ stir since last 12 years, against the controversial AFSPA(Armed Forces Special Power Act) which is imposed on the state of Manipur , has refused to plead guilty on charges framed by New Delhi court ! Sharmila claimed she was not committing suicide and rather protesting non-violently which is a valid political protest !

Sharmila launched her fast unto death in 2000 after 10 civilians were killed by Assam Rifles personnel near Imphal airport. At present, she is  lodged in a jail and is being fed through her nose at a hospital in Imphal. She was charged under Section 309 when she brought her fast and protest against the AFSPA to Delhi six years ago and since then has been under police custody.

Without getting into the debate of whether disturbed states should continue to be administered by the Armed Forces, there are questions. Isn’t a  fast,a peaceful and non-violent medium of protest in a democracy ? Why a fast-unto-death be compared to crime of attempting suicide under Section 309 of Indian Penal Code? Does this not show the  repeated incompetency of the state and central governments who have failed to bring normalcy in disturbed states of India since several decades now ? How long will it take for the disturbed states to get out of the tangles of ‘Military Raj’ ?

New Delhi Court frames charges against Irom Sharmila in fast-unto-death case

Protesters of Delhi gang rape attacked by police.

Hundreds and thousands of Protesters gathered at India Gate to march towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan to seek justice for 23 year-old girl who was brutally gangraped in a moving bus. As the area is security sensitive the Delhi police was forced to stop the swallowing crowd from heading towards President’s House.The protesters have been braving several water canons , tear gases and lathi charges and are still protesting and expecting a concrete answer from the government. The police has been attacking the protesters at regular intervals and successfully sending many of them to hospitals.

Courageous cops and active government representatives are making sure the protest is being crushed at the earliest.We should really thank the Delhi police and the government for showing their sincerity in maintaining law and order in the city by trying to curb the protest of the ‘Common Man’ against repeated rapes in Indian capital.

Delhi gang-rape: outraged India wakes up government

Delhi gangrape – A brutal gang-rape and physical assault in a bus in Delhi is a ‘breaking news’ since last 5 days.Outraged nation,active cops,timely ‘Breaking News Updates from Media,concerned government and opposition parties,its all happening the way it happens only in India.  Sheila Dikshit, the Chief Minister of Delhi got emotional and said she would do whatever it takes to save the girl. Previously, after the issue had created a buzz in the Parliament, Sonia Gandhi,the Congress chief, had sent an angry letter to Home Minister , Sushil Kumar Shinde and CM Sheila Dikshit.Sushil Shinde had called up the police head to ask for immediate action. The nation is furious,the opposition is busy blaming the govt and the govt is grilling the police.Out of the six accused,five are already caught.Some serious action is taking place while the victim continues to fight with death.

Thats how it happens in India.Everyone wakes up only after something goes real wrong and makes sure they go to sleep the moment the accused are put to task,often even before that. Why rapes and assaults have become a trend? Why the nation and the administration not bothered coming up with permanent solutions ?Why there are no amendments in law related to rapes and molestation? Why there are no extra security given by cops to  protect the physically weak(children,women,senior citizens)? The point is,we talk case specific and forget the case sooner than later and then wait for another incident to shock us up. Is it not time we take measures which would eradicate even the thought of rape,molestation and assault? Be it  strict laws like capital punishment, nothing less or free and mandatory spiritual,self-defense and awareness classes sponsored by govt and NGOs,or both,whatever it be but India has to eradicate rapes,assault and molestation once and for all.

Indo-China border dispute.

Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh is in Phnom Penh from November 18-20, 2012 to attend the 10th ASEAN-India Summit and the 7th East Asia Summit.Meanwhile,Dr Singh met Chinese Premier, Wen Jiabao, there and discussed the issue of increasing India’s market access to China for IT, services and pharmaceuticals.

Indian Govt remains ignorant while Chinese continue penetrating deeper in Arunachal Pradesh

Indian and Chinese Govt Representatives talk about trade and bilateral relations,quite often but disputed border issues between both the countries never got discussed and this has led Indian govt to keep silent on Chinese intrusions taking place in the regions of Himachal Pradesh and several kilometers inside Arunachal Pradesh. China not only claims whole of Arunachal Pradesh but also parts of Himachal and in Arunachal they have developed roads as well while the Indian Central Govt seems least bothered on the issue and state govts seem helpless.

Question is are we scared of China and can’t do anything about the intrusions and if it is , then why do our Indian Maps on our school books misleading us while Google maps show Pakistan occupied Kashmir and China occupied Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh as a disputed land and not Indian land?

Just go to google images and type ‘Indian Map’ and you would be shocked to see the variations of Indian borders  or  on google images type ‘india map with disputed territories‘ and check the difference !

when will we ask China to stop intrusion ?
