Your Vote is Precious - Use it wisely

"It is never too late to give up your prejudices"
 - Henry David Thoreau

121 Parliamentary Constituencies (PC) go to polls tomorrow (17th April) and 117 PC next week on 24th April. That makes it a whopping 238 PC, almost half the electorate will exercise their franchise on these two dates. I thought it would be an ideal time to re-visit some of my earlier posts, just to refresh and share them once again with the fellow Voters.

Like someone rightly said: “If you don't Vote, you lose the right to complain”. So yes, we must Vote! But what is even more important is to Vote with a Well-informed, Unbiased and Fearless mind. So sharing here some of my thoughts and ideas from past blogposts, only to put forward a perspective as a fellow Voter.

Disclaimer at the outset would be in order: This is not an 'appeal' to Vote for a Particular Party or a Candidate. I am not making a pitch for NaMo as PM – he does not need it. This is just a perspective and opinion of your fellow Voter, Period!

Of Distortians, Intellectuals and Spin-Doctors

Let us start with this one first, as this is where it all Originates from. 
We discussed three broad categories of information resources: Distortians (Level I), Poweratti (Level II) & Spin-Doctors (Level III). These three tribes put together is one big canvas of all those who peddle 'manufactured lies' in the name of 'Facts and Data'. They run their 'daily discourse' on India, from within and outside the country, serving their 'employers'. This has been a 'cottage industry' that has grown around us during the last two decades and they now have taken complete control of our daily lives. They do it for very simple reasons – money, status, job – terms like 'Country' and 'Nation' do not have any place in their dictionary. Yes, you guessed it right, they are Sickular, and let me also add that almost all of them fall under at least one of these categories: Commies, 'Fake-Liberals', 'Left-Liberals' and 'Crony-Socialists'.
Reason why I bring this up here right in the beginning is to highlight the fact that it is the 'Source' of News & Information that is becoming lot more important today than the 'Content'.
In my opinion, this is the most dangerous internal threat that India faces today as a Sovereign Republic.

Decoding NaMo : From a Classical Liberal perspective

Next point of discussion should obviously be the ideology, the 'ism' that would influence our decision on whom to Vote. NaMo is the only elected representative in the current political space in India, of course except JP of LSP, who in the capacity of a CM and now as PM designate, has explicitly, consistently and openly talked about some of the most fundamental aspects of governance, that draw straight from the Classical Liberal ideology – also the ideology that is most identifiable with “Swatantra Party”. Key points are:
  • Minimum Government with Maximum Governance
  • First Order Function
  • Nation First
  • No Appeasement & No Discrimination
  • Equality of Opportunity instead of Equality of Outcome
  • Pro-people, Proactive Good Governance (P2G2)
  • Federal Model of Governance
  • Opposes the very concept of “Nanny State” and “Intrusive Government”

Decoding NaMo : From Lutyens' Delhi perspective

Next, we need to figure out why there is so much of negative Publicity & Tags attached to NaMo.
In this post I coined the term 'Poweratti', that includes Politicians, Diplomats, Bureaucrats, Industrialists, Advocates, Journalists, Authors, Property-Dealers, Socialites, Historians, Artists, etc etc. This is the “gated-community” where no outsiders are allowed.
M R Venkatesh, in his book titled 'A Decade of Decay' has brilliantly argued in a chapter titled: "Modi has arrived. But is India ready?"
NaMo could well disturb the status-quo of the “Poweratti” and bring in a fresh perspective of a free and liberated democracy to the common man.

Decoding NaMo – From The Propaganda Perspective

And finally, NaMo carries the baggage of being a Fascist, Communist, Mass Murderer, Autocratic, Anti-Muslim, Hitler, etc etc. Twelve long years have passed and yet the ghost of 2002 is still not letting go of him. Anti-Modi literature has turned out to be a hugely remunerative cottage industry over the last decade and all actors of this theatre called “Propaganda Politics”, have benefitted tremendously from this industry. Madhu Kishwar says and I quote: “Modi bashing is ideologically fashionable”. I liked her description of “ideologically fashionable” !! Perfectly fits into the Bhadralok character of Lutyens Delhi. Nobody has threatened the very existence of Dynastic Congress other than NaMo.
Let us break free of the Dynastic Rule by Mobocracy and celebrate the True Democracy!

AAP – Theatre of the absurd: a congregation of NGOs, Activists & Bored CEOs

LS 2014 elections would be incomplete without discussing AAP. This post surely would upset many but I write this with a sense of responsibility based on my knowledge of events and facts. This is a classic master-stroke of Congress and the 'Paid Media' is once again doing what it does best, serve the Dynasty. Congress already knows where it stands today as far as 2014 Lok Sabha elections are concerned. Congress has exhausted all their tricks to keep NaMo away from contesting 2014 Lok Sabha polls. So this is the last and final attempt of Congress, pitching AAP against NaMo.

Good Luck, Mother India! May you get the BEST Government that you deserve!!

Nero’s Guests, the age of inequality: A Review

The reason why I have taken up to write a review of Nero’s Guests is because it needs to be widely circulated, written and talked about, as much as possible; so that everyone gets to see it, those who still do not get the time to watch it, may further need to be motivated to do so, and only then it will reach out to the wider audience and be able to make a real impact. The mainstream media today is totally degenerated and corrupted as it does not cover anything that is not “breaking news” or that is not considered “glamorous” enough to catch eye balls. For this obvious reason, Nero’s Guests has been completely ignored by the mainstream media (both print & electronic) and is not given its due space & visibility. The subject itself is not new to any of us and it has become a part of our daily lives - mere statistics. It is about the severe agrarian crisis that the country is faced with, as a result of which farmers are still committing suicide and as many as 200,000 farmers h

Down Memory Lane: Satpura National Park

Memory … is the diary that we all carry about with us ~ Oscar Wilde This one is a sequel to the earlier post: Story of Satpura , where we introduced and talked about the person, Shri K. S. Saxena (Retd IFS), who was at the centre of creation of what we know today as Satpura Biosphere Reserve.  We pick up where we had left with the concluding remark: “And he looks forward to visiting Satpura National Park sometime …” Satpura National Park After three successive COVID-19 lockdowns and all the trauma, it was only in October’21 that we could conclude the most awaited trip down memory lane to Satpura National Park, exactly forty years after it was inaugurated. Calling it mere ‘nostalgic trip’ for Shri. K.S. Saxena (ex-IFS) on his 86th Birthday would be nothing short of an insult to his passion and love for the jungles of Satpura.  Sharing here few pictures of the trip from our personal archives, please feel free to ‘click to enlarge’ pictures for better views.  The planning for the trip was

Ideological Subversion

And then, there are the communists, Blacker hearts still. They feed on the pus of all this corruption, Like maggots in a corpse! And like maggots have left a swell, They will eventually swarm like flies, And spread their rotten philosophy, Across the country and across the world, Those then, Are our enemies! ~ Inspector Chester Campbell / The Peaky Blinders Post independence, India had the option to chose & follow a particular path to build its own destiny as a Sovereign Nation State in the new world order, after almost 1000 years of foreign rule. This opportunity was actually the result of those Freedom Fighters who laid their precious lives to liberate India from foreign rule. Unfortunately, they did not live to witness the national tricolour being hoisted on 15th August 1947. The real heroes of our freedom struggle are the ones who contributed immensely during the 90 years, starting with 1857 through 1947. They were the real sons of the soil, most of whom martyred as nameless &
