    In Just 60 Years, Neoliberal Capitalism Has Nearly Broken Planet Earth
    By Jon Queally

    http://www.countercurrents.org/queally180115.htm

    Humanity's rapacious growth and accelerated energy needs over the last generation—particularly fed by an economic system that demands increasing levels of consumption and inputs of natural resources—are fast driving planetary systems towards their breaking point, according to a new pair of related studies


    A Population Perspective On The Steady State Economy
    By Herman Daly

    http://www.countercurrents.org/daly180115.htm

    If our ethical understanding of the value of "sustainability" (longevity with sufficiency) is to "maximize" cumulative lives ever to be lived, subject to a per capita consumption level sufficient for a good life, then we must limit the load we place on the earth at any one time


    On Finding Other Ways
    By Vincent Di Stefano

    http://www.countercurrents.org/stefano180115.htm

    The Cold War may have ended, but the US and Russia continue to harbour over 15,000 nuclear warheads between them. And a further 1,000 nuclear weapons are held by the UK, France, China, India, Pakistan and Israel. Does the thought of overkill come anywhere into the lexicon, let alone the imagination, of politicians and military planners?


    Pope Francis, Salman Rushdie And Charlie Hebdo
    By Richard Falk

    http://www.countercurrents.org/falk180115.htm

    I find myself siding with the abstract sentiments of Pope Francis, but with Rushdie's view of minimising the role of law and the state. In this respect, if we impose limits by way of government we are entering the domain of censorship. At the same time, we need to protect individuals and groups against malicious forms of defamation and hateful attacks on identities without confusing such protection with efforts to channel public awareness in certain prescribed directions


    Five Facts That Prove Paris Massacre is A False Flag Terror Op
    By Feroze Mithiborwala

    http://www.countercurrents.org/mithiborwala180115.htm

    Fact 1: 'Terrorist Leaves ID CARD' is part of an elaborate frame-up
    Fact 2: The 'Getaway car' and the 'Abandoned Car' in which the 'ID' was found are two different cars of the same Citroen C3 model.
    Fact 3: The 24x7 Police Security Provided to Charlie Hebdo had been withdrawn ~ Why? ~ When? ~ Who Issued the Order?
    Fact 4: Eye-witness report from 'France Info Radio', Role of Police and suspicious character spotted 4 hours prior to the attack
    Fact 5: All the four terrorists were police informers, terrorist recruiters known and working for French Intel


    The Zionist Terror Is The Major Cause Of Islamic Fundamentalism, Wars And Terrorism
    By Dr Salim Nazzal

    http://www.countercurrents.org/nazzal180115.htm

    Europe's busy at the moment inductively for answers about what can be done after the terror that hit the French capital. But all the comments and analyses do not seem that Europe has come to the key question, about the reasons of the Arab and Muslim hostility towards the west. And the Islamic fundamentalism is the irrational product of this hostile environment. This hostility did not come overnight, and did not come as well by parachute, but has a clear history, title and address


    Paris, Peshawar And Boko Haram- Religion, Politics And Violence
    By Ram Puniyani

    http://www.countercurrents.org/puniyani180115.htm

    Do we need to factor in the political forces, Kings of the past, the colonial masters of yesteryears and the 'oil hungry' global superpowers, behind promoting, abusing religions' identity to understand the dastardly acts tormenting the humanity? The phrases joining any religion and terrorism are the biggest insult to the morality of religions to be sure!


    'Uncaged Corporate Parrots' And The False GMO Narrative
    By Colin Todhunter

    http://www.countercurrents.org/todhunter180115.htm

    British Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss has stated that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more 'eco-friendly'. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss's predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology


    America Is Open for Business in Iraq (Psst... Wanna Buy an M1 Tank?)
    By Peter Van Buren

    http://www.countercurrents.org/buren180115.htm

    Even as the Obama administration stumbles and bumbles along in search of a magical political strategy in Iraq that would make sense of everything, American weapons-makers can expect a bountiful future. In the meantime, Washington is putting forces in place that, by doing more of the same for the third time in a disintegrating Iraq in the middle of a fracturing region, guarantee more of the same. In that sense, you might say that American forces are partly in place to help promote the investment. If one needed an example of how the military-industrial complex works today, that might be it. Every mistake by Washington is a boon for future arms sales

    Fascism Thrives In The Form Of Democracy
    By Sukumaran C. V.

    http://www.countercurrents.org/sukumaran180115.htm

    When a democracy doesn't listen to the words of the people like Ram Bai and doesn't stop creating large number of hapless people like the tribal man who says that it would be better for his baby to die, it ceases to be a democracy. And it seems that fascism thrives both in the 'strongest' democracy in the world and in the 'largest' democracy of the world too


    Terrorism Beyond Charlie Hebdo, Terrorism Of Motorists
    By Vidyadhar Date

    http://www.countercurrents.org/date180115.htm

    The recent terrorist shooting of cartoonists in Paris and of school children in Peshawar needs to be strongly condemned. But if one looks at the numbers, far more people are killed by motor vehicles on roads in India than by Islamic terrorism. But few want to talk about the terrorism on the roads by private vehicles because it is inflicted by the upper class and in a way by the administration itself


    The Right To Education: Rhetoric or A Reality?
    By Shalu Nigam

    http://www.countercurrents.org/nigam180115.htm

    Right to Education in India ensures that every child under the age of 14 years must be provided with free and compulsory education. However, to make this a reality, a continuous effort is required on the part of the state to ensure that both the quantitative and qualitative requirements are met. This means not only increasing availability of and accessibility to schools, classrooms, teachers and infrastructure facilities across the country but also there is a need to improve the quality of education

    AHRC Writes To Minister Of Finance, Sri Lanka
    By Basil Fernando & Bijo Francis

    http://www.countercurrents.org/ahrc180115.htm

    AHRC is writing this letter in order to draw your attention to two important components necessary for the establishment of good governance that if they are to be realized, would require budgetary allocations. The two major areas where such budgetary allocations would be required are: 1) Measures for the modernization of the Sri Lankan police, to progress from the primitive style of policing that exists in the country to one that is possessed of the qualities and capacities found in modern times in many countries; 2) The establishment of a commission against bribery and corruption that could genuinely implement a program of prevention of bribery and corruption, again, in terms of what has been achieved in many countries in modern times. One recognized example is the Independent Commission against Corruption (ICAC) in Hong Kong

     Richest 1% Percent To Have More Than Rest Of Humanity Combined By 2016
    By Jon Queally

    http://www.countercurrents.org/queally190115.htm

    In less than two years, if current trends continued unchecked, the richest 1% percent of people on the planet will own at least half of the world's wealth. That's the conclusion of a new report from Oxfam International, released Monday, which states that the rate of global inequality is not only morally obscene, but an existential threat to the economies of the world and the very survival of the planet. Alongside climate change, Oxfam says that spiraling disparity between the super-rich and everyone else, is brewing disaster for humanity as a whole


    I'm Maurice Sinet - "I Like Charlie Coulibaly"
    By Dr. Ludwig Watzal

    http://www.countercurrents.org/watzal190115.htm

    The controversial French comedian Dieudonné M'bala M'bala posted on facebook "I like Charlie Coulibaly". An investigation by the Paris prosecutor's office followed immediately, and two days later, Wednesday 14 January, he was arrested for exercising his right of freedom of speech. His shows are banned because of being "anti-Semitic". With the approval of the French government freedom of expression can be utilized, but if it doesn't fit into the prevailing political concept of the ruling political and media class, one has a problem


    Netanyahu And Europe's Far Right Find Common Ground
    By Jonathan Cook

    http://www.countercurrents.org/cook190115.htm

    Israel has been having its own internal debate about the significance of the Paris killings this month, with concerns quite separate from those expressed in Europe. While Europeans are mired in debates about free speech and the role of Islam in secular societies, Israelis generally – and their prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in particular – view the attacks as confirming Israel's place as the only safe haven for Jews around the world

    Had people like Chris Kyle, Bush Jr., and their contemporaries/predecessors been effectively reached, early and often, by information and logic, millions of people might still be alive and safe – that is, saf er . There is no such thing as total safety, but once the US invaded Iraq again in 2003, it dragged Iraq further and further down, further and further into chaos, until finally it was reduced to its current status as home of the "world's worst city", as a UK research company put it

    Land Ordinance is Worse than 1894 Act and Has United People

    New AP Capital will only Help Real Estate Developers at the Cost of Agriculture

    January 19, 2015: "Land Ordinance has provided the right ammunition for the people and parties to come together against this government with authoritarian tendencies, said Sharad Yadav, senior JD(U) leader. He was speaking at the day long consultation organized at the Constitution Club, New Delhi by NAPM on the issue 'Land ordinance, Corporate Land Grab and Green Field Capital for Andhra Pradesh'.

    Echoing the sentiment, D Raja, Rajya Sabha MP (CPI) said that we must have faith in the democratic framework of our country and auhtoritarianism doesn't have a place in this country. Left along with other opposition parties will mobilise inside the Parliament and we hope people's movements and farmers workers organisaitons will mobilise outside and complement each other and give NDA a fitting reply. They say of calling a joint Parliamentary Session, as a threat, but we know parliamentary procedures and it is not going to be easy, not only one but many Ordinances are at stake here, he further added.

    Mr. Jairam Ramesh and Yogendra Yadav sent their solidarity messages and offered support but could not join the meeting due to some other engagements.

    In context of the Ordinance the consultation focused on plans for the New Greenfield Capital of Andhra Pradesh. M G Devasahayam, retd IAS, and head of the Fact Finding Team constituted by NAPM, made a detailed presentation on the AP Greenfield Capital Development plans, farmers resistance and windfall gains built in for real estate developers and complete transfer of autonomy to a Singapore firm. He said, that the Capital Sitting Committee had clearly specified that least possible dislocation to existing agricultural practices should take place and that moreover did not favour a green field capital city. But in complete disregard to these recommendations the region chosen, Guntur District near Vijaywada, has a thriving agricultural economy of Rs. 1000 Crore and 120 different crop varieties. The region has 85 percent small and marginal farmers and also has women entrepreneurs who earn Rs.200-700 per day. The planned Capital will take 30,000 acres of multi crop farm land from 29 Villages affecting 2 lakh plus population. The land pooling scheme, meant to be voluntary, is being used to forcefully acquire land from farmers.

    Mr. C Ramachandraiah, Leader of Opposition, AP Legislative Council, said that the MoU with the Singapore is done without any knowledge to CB Naidu's own cabinet colleagues, so what to talk of the MLAs and MLCs. Mr. Naidu is following exactly the same style of functioning as Mr Modi is following in the Centre. The APCRD Act has no people's support and is a clear case of tyranny of majority. There is absolutely no space in the Assembly to even discuss the Sivaramakrishna Committee report or discuss the plans for the green field capital.

    Mr Ramakrishna Raju, NAPM Convener, who visited the area along with K Babu Rao, senior scientist and NAPM member said that farmers and workers do not want to give land but are being coerced into doing so. More than 1000 police personnel have been deployed in the region and people are being forced to sign away their land. Minimal cash compensation is being provided. The implicit reasoning behind the large amount of land needed is to convert it into real estate will benefit only the developers. All at the cost of a thriving agricultural economy that feeds and provides employment to people. As Devashayam commented, "Make in India is about unmaking rural India and making urban India"

    In the morning session K B Saxena, former Secretary to GoI, and Usha Ramanathan, legal researcher and expert said that the land ordinance has taken us back to the 1894 act. And possibly a worse situation, with no system of checks and balances. The ordinance has diluted a range of consent provisions as well as opened up the field for all forms of private and PP partnerships. It has also taken out the provision for SIA - where there is no way to judge efficacy or even do a cost-benefit analysis. Ramanathan also said that common lands are owned by people, state seems to believe that they have sovereign rights over all land, including commons. Democratic spaces are becoming smaller and the nexus between corporates and politicians- served by the bureaucrats- land is becoming real estate.

    Ritwick Dutta, environmental lawyer commented that the ordinance needs to be seen in conjunction with changes and dilutions in the environmental regulations as suggested by the T S Subramanian Committee. These dilutions will have far reaching implications since they exempt almost every project from the provisions of the public hearing and consent in the name of national and strategic importance.

    Swami Agnivesh, Vandana Shiva, Harikesh Bahadur (ex MP), B Satyanarayana, Babudin Khan, Preeti Sampat, Mira Shiva, Rupesh Verma, Col Balhara, Col S P Singh, Bhupender Singh Rawat, Sunil Fauji, Ameena Shervani and many others contributed to the meeting and discussions.

    Farmers and peasant groups Sanyukt Kisan Sagharsh Samiti, Delhi Grameen Samaj, from the NCR region and APVVU from Andhra pradesh also joined the meeting and presented their plan of action. Protests are being planned at Jantar mantar on the 1stFebruary against the ordinance as well as Left Kisan Sabhas will also be protesting on 30th of January at jantar Mantar.

    To follow up on the today's meeting and discussions NAPM, All India Union of Forest Working People, Delhi Solidarity Group, Jan Adhikar Sangharsh Samiti and other groups are organising a national convention on January 23-24th in Delhi to chalk out future programme and mobilisation strategy to take the struggle forward.

    Rothschild Email: "Mossad Were Behind The Paris Attacks"

    A leaked email from Madame Rothschild in which she says that the Paris Attacks at Charlie Hebdo were "a Mossad operation". 

    The email was sent to an editor of a website called Darkmoon.me on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 5:56 AM.

    "Muslims had nothing to do with the Paris Attacks"– it is claimed. The email below is the exact copy sent allegedly from Madame Rotchschild to Lasha Darkmoon of Darkmoon.me:

    Dear Lasha,

    I won't write to the Comments section of your website, as you suggest, because I cannot help feeling that it is juvenile to do so. But this I will say most emphatically, based on my private sources, for as you know, I am a resident of France and have many friends in high places in Paris and elsewhere: not only do I believe that the Paris circus was not done by the Muslims, I actually know for a certainty that it was not.

    Muslims had nothing—I repeat, nothing—whatever to do with the carnage that took place in Paris last week.

    A few young ladies whom I know and who are active in the Palestinian movement—with your own countryman, George Galloway, I believe—explained everything to me two days ago. This whole event was organized in Brussels. Even Ahmed Merabet, the first French policeman purportedly shot dead, is actually not a Muslim at all: his real name is Avigdor, and his brother's name is Maloch, recently changed to Melek—all of them crypto-Jews in the service of Israeli intelligence, i.e., Mossad agents.

    Avigdor is in Buenos Aires right now, and will remain there for six years, a standard operating procedure with those deep in Israeli psyops. After this he will resurface with a new identity, by which time of course the populace will have forgotten all about the Paris attacks.

    Remember Gladio? Well, if you don't, you don't have to—as you are living through it right now.

    Lasha, I am well known for being able to chatter on endlessly and to write even at greater length, so this is all for now. I will write you an email sometimes in March when I return to France and the UK from Sydney. Hopefully, there will be no more pussyfooting around, and we can sit down and enjoy a glass of wine together, as befits two queens: one a drama queen (me), the other a mystery queen (you). 
    That's all, dear. Bye for now and keep well. I've missed you.

    Ellie K

    P.S. Regarding the Paris farce. I forgot to mention the amount such players get paid. It is 666,000 euros or dollars, depending on the country the event is staged in. The amount may seem random and insignificant to you, but once you know how important numerology and signs are to the Kabalistic Jews, things begin to make sense.

    Moreover, the number SIX features again, you will notice, as that is the number of years during which the commandos carrying out the operation are not allowed to resurface. They have to lie low for six years, living lives of impeccable respectability under their newly invented personas. When they finally emerge into the full light of day, it is never in the country where they performed their original theatrics.

    Thus Avigdor, the "hero" of the Paris op, and all the rest of his accomplices in crime, will start a new life elsewhere: with a new identity, new papers, a new passport—even a nice new house provided. Everything else will be given to these operatives to enable them to make a fresh start in life, including a wife or partner who is also an undercover agent. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left to chance.

    Death of attack victim sparks tension

    Special Correspondent

     

    Tension prevailed at Kurayur near Kalligudi in Madurai district after one of the three victims, who were stoned in their sleep on Friday night, succumbed on Sunday afternoon.

     

    A heavy posse of police was deployed at the village to prevent any untoward incident.

     

    R. Vellai (50), a Dalit, who had sustained head injury in the attack, died at the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH). Based on a complaint lodged by Tiruvettai (83), who was also injured along with A. Chandrasekar (27) in the attack by an unidentified gang at around 11 p.m., the Kalligudi police had registered a case for attempt to murder and under the provisions of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.

     

    Four persons — K. Kanagarpandi (19), M. Pandi Karuppan, K. Pandikaruppan and a minor boy — were picked up by the police.

     

    The police said that the accused, all caste Hindus, had randomly attacked with iron rods, clubs and stones those sleeping in the open auditorium in the village. The attack is suspected to be a revenge on an assault of a person belonging to their group during a cultural programme held in the village in November 2014.

    VILLUPURAM: Police have arrested eight persons and registered cases against 50 others for a clash between two communities on Saturday night.

     

    Police said the clash was the fallout of a  dispute during a hand-ball match in the same locality in December, when members of the Vanniyar community from Koonimedu village and Dalits from Ambedkar Nagar near Marakkanam attacked one another.

     

    On Saturday evening, when Jagadeesh (20) of Koonimedu village went to Ambedkar Nagar, some people there picked up an argument with him over the month-old dispute and suddenly attacked him. On information, nearly 20 of Jagadeesh's relatives rushed to the spot and started attacking the other group. Soon, supporters of both the sides joined in the attack.

     

    Unable to bring the situation under control, police resorted to lathicharge and dispersed the mob.

    After SC/ST cell's demand, GU to fill vacancies as per roster system

    http://indianexpress.com/article/cities/ahmedabad/after-scst-cells-demand-gu-to-fill-vacancies-as-per-roster-system/

     

    GU had earlier advertised for the posts in November 2013

    with all vacancies meant for the open category.

     

    Written by Syed Khalique Ahmed | Ahmedabad | Posted: January 19, 2015 3:51 am

     

    After a demand from the SC/ST cell of the Gujarat University (GU), asking for the authorities to follow the roster system for filling up teaching and non-teaching post, the state's oldest varsity has been forced to reject all applications it received through a previous advertisement for 30 teaching posts in 18 departments. The university will now go for fresh applications.

     

    GU had earlier advertised for the posts in November 2013 with all vacancies meant for the open category. This was strongly objected to by the SC/ST cell of GU, which threatened to take the matter to the court if the roster system – meant for filling up posts after inviting applications from categories including SCs and STs – was not followed.

     

    After the matter reached the state government last week, Education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasma called the SC/ST cell office bearers and university authorities to discuss the issue. He finally agreed with the SC/ST cell, which insisted that the best course would be to follow the roster system. The minister reportedly told university officials to follow the law in the matter.

     

    Vice-Chancellor M N Patel said that the new order would lead to delay in filling up of the posts, as GU will advertise afresh for the concerned posts, with almost 25 to be reserved for SC/ST candidates.

     

    "The previous applications received through November 2013 advertisements have been rejected," Patel said. When asked what steps the university would take if reserved category candidates were not found for the posts reserved for them, the V-C said the university would then go as per law.

     

    According to sources, there are many vacancies in the state's grant-in-aid science colleges affiliated to GU. As per the roster system, all these posts are required to be filled up by SC/ST candidates. The sources added that colleges were not filling up these posts and had instead started self-financed classes for science courses by recruiting additional staff for which they don't have to follow the reservation policy. GU had permitted self-financed classes in January last year.

    Mayawati deploys all senior leaders to oversee 70 constituencies

    Mayawati will address 14 rallies in Delhi before the polls.

     

    Written by Ramendra Singh | Lucknow | Posted: January 19, 2015 3:42 am

     

    In an all-out effort to reclaim the party's lost support base in the national capital, BSP chief Mayawati has deployed all senior party functionaries from Uttar Pradesh as coordinators for the Delhi Assembly elections scheduled to be held on February 7.

     

    Mayawati herself has left for Delhi after celebrating her birthday in Lucknow on January 15, and is finalising the tickets for the 70 Assembly constituencies that the party plans to contest on its own. Sources said most candidates have been identified and the party is likely to announce the tickets on Monday.

     

    This time, Mayawati is slated to address more rallies than she did in 2013. She is scheduled to address 14 rallies in Delhi from January 29 to February 4.

     

    BSP general secretary and Leader of Opposition in UP Legislative Council, Naseemuddin Siddiqui, UP unit president Ram Achal Rajbhar, Rajya Sabha MP Munquad Ali, Orissa state in-charge Dharamvir Singh Ashok and other leaders have been given charge of assembly segments in each of the seven Lok Sabha constituencies of Delhi.

     

    The BSP, which had won two seats in Delhi in the 2008 Assembly elections and polled over 14 per cent votes, could fetch only 5.35 per cent votes in the 2013 state elections. It could not win any seats in 2013 as most of its supporters sided with the Aam Aadmi Party.

     

    Mayawati has tried to counter the AAP by claiming that the party is not good for Dalits and OBCs as AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal does not support reservation.

     

    The party is also trying to rectify mistakes it made in the 2013 polls. It has re-inducted Surendra Kumar, who had won from Gokalpur in 2008 but contested as an independent in 2013 after being denied a ticket by BSP. Kumar had lost to BJP nominee by less than 2,000 votes while the BSP candidate had come fifth. Kumar is now set to contest from the same seat as BSP nominee, a party leader said. He added that BSP has approached another former MLA too, but he has refused to return to the party.

     

    "All senior leaders have been given responsibility of overseeing the Assembly segments in one Lok Sabha constituency. We have been working hard for almost a year. All I can say is there will be surprising results this time," Ram Achal Rajbhar told The Indian Express over phone from Delhi.

    बचवा ,का चाहिए,स्मार्ट सिटी,ड्रोन और परमाणु बम?

    भूतों के राजा से कल्कि अवतार क्या क्या मांगेंगे जबकि गणतंत्र उत्सव के वही विष्णु भगवान हुए?

    जबकि गणतंत्र में न गण है और न तंत्र,बाकीर जो है मंत्र है ,वैदिकी उच्चारण हैं!

    क्या आर्डिनेंस राज के खिलाफ बयान न देकर दस्तखत रोकेंगे महामहिम?

    पलाश विश्वास

    "Obama Go Back" - Planning meeting will be held at Shramik Office, Royal Crest, 1st Floor, Lokmanya Tilak Vasahat Road No 3, near Dadar Station (E), Mumbai, India, at 6.00pm, on Wednesday 21/1/15.


    The Left parties have already issued a national call which we all are supporting and thus involving more people's organizations to be part of the protest. In Mumbai, the protest against Obama will be held on the 24th of Jan, 15, at 5.00pm, outside the Dadar Stn (E), near the HanumanTemple.


    We are supporting the call given by the Left Parties to oppose the US-Anglo-Zionist imperial project for global domination and thus oppose the increasing ties with the Empire, which is a betrayal of our national legacy and the sacrifice and martyrdom of our freedom fighters.

    सुबह पीसी के मुखातिब हुए तो देखना था कि अमलेंदु बाबू ने का का गुल खिलाये हैं।बंगाल में साझे चूल्हे पर खबर देखकर दिल बाग बाग हुआ तो फिर वही खबर कि महामहिम आर्डिनेंस राज से नाराज है बल।


    अखबारों में फिर उसी खबर का ब्यौरा।


    चीखती सी सुर्खियां किरण बेदी बनाम केजरीवाल बुलफाइट को बचा बचाकर।


    कल्पना कीजिये कि अमेरिकी गणतंत्र उत्सव हो।

    कल्पना कीजिये कि अपने महामहिम उहां मुख्य अतिथि हों।


    फिर कल्पना कीजिये कि भारतीयसुरक्षा एजंसियों की निगरानी में हो अमेरिका और वाशिंगटन।हियां तक कि कल्पना कीजिये कि मान्यवर प्रेसीडेंट हमारे राष्ट्रपति की सुरक्षा के लिहाज से खुद ही चाचा बाबू की कोई ताजातरीन कारों का काफिला लेकर पहुंचे वाशिंगटन और अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति अपनी गाड़ी व्हाइट हाउस में गैरेज करके अपने महामहिम के गाड़ी में बैठ जाये।


    तकलीफ ज्यादा मत कीजिये।

    भारत में वही हो रहा है,जो कल्पना नहीं, हकीकत है।


    गणतंत्र हमारा।

    गणतंत्र दिवस हमारा।

    और हमारे हिस्से में सड़ेला लड्डू भी नहीं।


    परेड हमारे रणबांकुरे जवानों की,झांकिया हमारे देश की,हमारी संस्कृति की, जिसमें वह शत प्रतिशत हिंदुत्व भी शामिल है,उसकी विशुद्ध पवित्रता भी और उसकी तमाम आस्थाएं और छवियां भी।


    आसमान में भारतीय वायुसेना के करतब होगे और मिसाइल मारक आयुधों का प्रदर्शन भी होगा जनपथ पर। इंडिया गेट पर हमारे ही शहीदों को श्रद्धाजंलि दी जायेगी।


    लेकिन दिल्ली और पूरा देश ड्रोन के हवाले हैं।

    लेकिन दिल्ली और देश का पूरा खुफिया तंत्र ,सुरक्षा बंदोबस्त अमेरिका और इजराइल के हवाले हैं,क्योंकि हमारे गणतंत्र में,हमारे गणतंत्र उत्सव में हमरे लिए सड़ेला लड्डू भी नहीं है।


    गणतंत्र हमारे लिए मणिपुर है।

    गणतंत्र हमारे लिए लहूलुहान कश्मीर है।


    गणतंत्र हमारा सशस्त्र सैन्यबल विशेषाधिकार कानून है।

    गणतंत्र ना ना करते निजीकरण,विनिवेश,विनियमन,विनियंत्रण और मिनिमम गवर्नेंस है और बाकी सांढ़ों की उछल कूद है।


    बाकी मनुष्यता की हत्या है।

    इस गणतंत्र में न भारत की जनता है और न भारतीय जनता के चुने हुए प्रतिनिधि हैं और न भारत की राज्य सरकारें हैं।

    इस गणतंत्र में भारत का संविधान नहीं है।


    इस गणतंत्र में भारत की संसद नहीं है।जो है वह है कारपोरेट केसरिया तंत्र और मंत्र और तिलिस्म और तलवारे भांजते अय्यार जो कभी भी किसी का भी गर्दन उड़ा दें ,कभी भी किसी को भी मकबुल फिदा हुसैन,अनंतमूर्ति और पेरुमल मुरुगण बना दें।


    हमने अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति को भारत दौरा रद्द करने को लिखा था।

    हमने आपसे आवेदन किया था कि आप भी लिखें।देखें हस्तक्षेप।


    हम तो छोटका आदमी है और आपने हमारी नहीं सुनी,अच्छा है।पेरुमल गति से तो अभी बख्शे हैं,हमारे बाप दादों का पुमण्य पराक्रम है कि बचे हुए हैं सकुशल।


    बड़ा ह्ल्ला है कि सारे वाम दल मिलकर ओबामा के खिलाफ वापस जाओ नारा दांगेंगे।

    हम तो कहीं कोई विरोध उरोध देख नाही रहे हैं।


    हो सकता है,सीआईए और एफबीआई और मोसाद के मुकाबले वामदल अपना जौहर परेड के वक्त ही दिखाने की तैयारी में हैं।


    बाकीर वामपंथी तमाम मुद्दों पर फेसबुकवा में उधम मचा रहे हैं,लेकिन कहीं ओबामा वापस जाओ का नारा दिखा नहीं है।हो तो हमें शेयर करें तो अपने ब्लागों को हम भी लाउडस्पीकर बना दें।


    तमाम यूनियनें अब भी वामपंथी हैं।

    तमाम संस्कृतिकर्मी स्वभाव से जनवादी हैं।

    रंगकर्मी और फिल्मकार,लेखक कवि ससुरे सारे के सारे जनवादी हैं और जनवाद की डिक्शनरी में अमेरिका का विरोध दर्ज नहीं हुआ है भारत के सात दशक से अमेरिकी उपनिवेश बन जाने के बावजूद।

    हमका माफी दे दो।

    हमारे जो लोग निनानब्वे फीसद हैं उनको माफी दे दो।

    लगता है कि गिराबल्लभ हम पर सवार है।उसे मरकर भी चैन नहीं है।


    उसके हुड़के की थाप तो वीरेनदा जैसे लोग फिर पैदा कर सकत हैं।लेकिन हम डंके की चोट पर गिरदा की भाखा में कहना चाहते हैंः


    जो राजनीति जनता के हकहकूक के मुद्दों पर खामोश है,उसपर थूः


    हम डंके की चोट पर गिरदा की भाखा में कहना चाहते हैंः

    जो साहित्य,जो भाषा सत्ता विमर्श में हो निष्मात और जनपक्ष के साथ करें निरंतर विश्वासघात, उस पर थूः,थूः उस तमाम रंग बिरंग उत्सव पर


    हम डंके की चोट पर गिरदा की भाखा में कहना चाहते हैंः

    जिस संस्कृति कर्म दक्षता और कलाकौशल तकनीक में उच्चारित हो दसों दिशाओं में और उसमे जनता की आवाज कहीं नहीं हो,उस पर भी थूः


    हम डंके की चोट पर गिरदा की भाखा में कहना चाहते हैंः

    जो रंगकर्म दुनिया को बदलने की ताकत रखता हो,जो हर दरवादे पर दस्तक दे सकता हो और सत्ता की चाशनी में डूबा डूबा शौकिया रंगकर्म तक,उत्सवों तक सीमाबद्ध हो,जो गलियों मोहल्लों और गांवों को उनके हक हकूक के लिए गोलबंद न करें,उसपर थूः


    हम डंके की चोट पर गिरदा की भाखा में कहना चाहते हैंः

    वह सामाजिक यथार्थ जो महज सांढ़ों की उछलकूद हो और बेलगाम देह बाजार है,उसपर थूः


    माफ कीजिये,जनाब,हम पेरुमंल मुरुगण नहीं होगे कतई।अपना घर फूंक देंगे।मारे जाएंगे लावारिश कुत्तों की तरह।लेकिन हम लिखना ना छोड़ेंगे और न जनाता के हक हूक के सवालों पर खामोश रहेंगे।


    हमारे सवालों पर गौर करें फिरः

    बचवा ,का चाहिए,स्मार्ट सिटी,ड्रोन और परमाणु बम?

    भूतों के राजा से कल्कि अवतार क्या क्या मांगेंगे जबकि गणतंत्र उत्सव के वही विष्णु भगवान हुए?

    जबकि गणतंत्र में न गण है और न तंत्र,बाकीर जो है मंत्र है ,वैदिकी उच्चारण हैं!

    क्या आर्डिनेंस राज के खिलाफ बयान न देकर दस्खत रोकेंगे महामहिम?

    जो राष्ट्रपति जनता के हक हकूक के खिलाफ खड़ा न हो सके और प्रेस में छपने वाला बयान देकर शांत बैठ जाये,ऐसे महामहिम के हाथों गणतंत्र सुरक्षित नहीं है।


    मैं बचपन जीने का कोई मौका कभी खोता नहीं हूं।

    आज सुबह सुबह  बगल की बेटी मना के  दो साल के बेटे  साथ कम से कम दो घंटे बिताया।मना एमए पास है और उसका पति हाईस्कूल तक नहीं पहुंचा।


    वर्षो से उनका प्रेम विवाह लटका हुआ था।तो हम काल्टू से मिलने कन्याकुमारी के पास कुड़नकुलम चले गये।जहां काल्टू परमाणु संयंत्र में ठेकेदार था।वह बंगाल से तकनीशयन और मजदूर ले जाकर देश भर के परमाणु केंद्रों में निर्माण कार्य करता है और इसीका विशेषज्ञ है वह।उसके साथ हम तीन चार दिनों तक रहे और हमने लौटकर मना के मां बाप को उनके विवाह के लिए राजी कर लिया।


    मना का बेटा  कुड़नकुलम में ही पैदा हुआ और शानदार लुंगी डांस करता है।वह खाने में बेहद नखरे करता है।आज उसने मेरे साथ मटर भरे फुलके खाये।आलू का दम झाल झाल कहते हुए खा लिया उसने।


    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?


    टुसु जबसे बड़ा हुआ ,सविता एक के बाद मोहल्ले के छोटे बच्चों को पालती रही।अब संगीत में कुछ ज्यादा ही रम जाने के कारण उसे वक्त कम मिलता है बच्चों के साथ।


    मैं लेकिन मोहल्ले भर के बच्चों का दोस्त हूं जैसे मेरठ में तमाम बूढ़़े हमारे परम मित्र हुआ करते थे।


    बूढ़ों से उनकी अनंत अभिज्ञता मिली तो बच्चों से उनकी अनंत ऊर्जा और उनकी कल्पनाओं की उड़ान मुझमें संक्रमित होती रही है।


    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?



    बच्चों की दृष्टि हर ब्यौरे के साथ घटनाओं का अपने मुताबिक विश्लेषण करती है एकदम निष्पक्ष।बचपन से महान कोई पत्रकारिता हो सकती नहीं।इंद्रधनुषी रंग हैं,लेकिन पूरी तरह वस्तुपरक।कोई पक्ष नहीं होता बचपन का।कोई दुराग्रह नहीं होता बचपन का।


    मेरा मानना है कि मनुष्य अपने बचपन के साथ जीता है और मरता भी बचपन के साथ है।

    बचपन की यादे हाथीदांत का खजाना है,जो लुट गया तो मनुष्य फिर जिंदा नहीं बचता।

    मैं तो बच्चा बना रहना चाहता हूं तजिंदगी।

    बूढ़ा होकर मेरे मरने का कोई इरादा है नहीं। न जवानी बरकरार रखने वाला कोई मैं बाबा हूं।


    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?


    राज की बात यह बताऊं की इस देश की आधी आबादी जो माताओं,बहनों,बेटियों, बहुओं,भाभियों,चाचियों,मौसियों की हैं,उनके और हमराे बीच एकमात्र सेतु यही बचपन है,जहां से गुजरकर हम उनके अंतःस्थल तक पहुंच सकते हैं और उनके अंतःस्थल को स्पर्श किये बिना,उनके मजबूत इरादे के बिना हम अपने देश को दसों दिशाओं से घेर रही कयामती फिजाओं से हरगिज हरगिज नहीं बचा सकते।


    ऐसी तमाम औरतें जो हमारी रिश्ते में कुछ न कुछ लगती हैं और देश के खेतों, खलिहानों, कारखानों, दफ्तरों, विश्वविद्यालयों,खानों,जंगलो से लेकर अंतरिक्ष और खेल के मैदानों में अपना जलवा दिखा रही हैं,माटी की सुगंध से महमहाती उनकी सुंदरता पर हजारों हजार प्रेमिकाएं हमारी कुर्बान,कुर्बान।


    हम किसी के प्रेमी नहीं हैं और हम उन्हीके जिदंगी में शरीक बचपन में खोये हुए चोहरों में से एक चेहरा हैं,इतना वे मान ले तो पुरुष वर्चस्व के विरुद्ध धर्महीन,वर्गहीन शोषणविहीन समाज के लिए युद्धघोषणा है।


    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?


    गौरतलब है कि बचपन की यह जो ताकत है,जो दृष्टि है,वही पथेर पांचाली को हमेशा कालजयी बनाये रखेगी।


    बच्चों की दृष्टि से ही विभूति भूषण बंदोपाध्याय और चार्ल्स डिकेंस का रचनाकर्म क्लासिक हैं।


    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?


    ईदगाह जैसी कथा से प्रेमचंद का जो बचपन हमारे मुखातिब है ,दरअसल वहीं भारत देश के बहुल संस्कृति का साझा चूल्हा है,जिसकी वजह से भारत बना हुआ है और शैतानी ताकतों की हर कारगुजारियों को हराकर भारत जीवित रहेगा,हिंदूराष्ट्र तो हरगिज नहीं बनेगा।


    हिंदू साम्राज्यवाद से सही मायने में भारत राष्ट्र को कोई खतरा नहीं है।

    सिर्फ इतिहास लिखेगा अपराध हमारा।


    दोबारा इतिहास लिखने से कोई इतिहास बदल नहीं जाता।

    आप चाहेंगे तो भी हिमालय की उत्तुंग शिखरों को केसरिया नहीं बना सकते और न समुंदर कभी केसरिया बनेगा।


    न जमीन होगी केसरिया और न आसमान केसरिया होगा।


    बंगाल में लाल को बना रही थी नीला दीदी लेकिन न लाल मिटा है और न बंगाल नीला हुआ है और न बंगाल केसरिया होने जा रहा है।


    अमित शाह का भारत विजय अधूरा ही रहना है।

    लाउडस्पीकर पर राजनीतिक शोर सुनकर उसने मुझसे कई दफा पूछा,क्या है,हम जवाब न दे पायें।

    आपके पास जवाब है?

    Greater disaster Imminent!

    The Corporate Lawyer who defended  Dow Chemicals and denied justice to Bhopal Victims,innovates India in Modi ways!

    Palash Biswas

    Greater disaster Imminent!


    The Corporate Lawyer who defended  Dow Chemicals and denied justice to Bhopal Victims,innovates India in Modi ways!As many as 11.5 crore bank accounts have been opened under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana, exceeding the enhanced target of 10 crore and covering 99.74% of households, finance minister Arun Jaitley said on Tuesday.The Man in defence of Dow Chemicals!


    Perhaps his act like the defence of the Dow Chemicals should be the best ever inclusion for which Indian masses die! As the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the financial Inclusion is one of the top most priorities of the government. He said that exclusion of a large number of people from any access to financial services inhibits the growth of our country.


    Just celebrate as the Carnival begins and the US President comes India as the Narendra Modi government has created a record for opening the maximum number of bank accounts in the shortest possible time under the government's flagship financial inclusion scheme, Jan Dhan Yojana.

    Cash liquidity ensured and the Have Nots have the much needed cash to expand the market beyond limit.It is not making India,pardon,it is innovating India, as concluded by Gujarat vibrant.Please do not link it with Gujrat Genocide as United sates of Americs has given a perfect cleanchit and he enjoys diplomatic immunity in any US court.


    Just try to understand! US President Barack Obama is the guest of honour and IMF just predicted that India would cross China as far as growth rate is concerned.So what?With less than one and a half months left for the Union Budget to be presented, finance minister Arun Jaitley on Monday said that the government is working on rationalisation of the tax structure and is also making attempts to make budgetary proposals more business friendly under minimum governance,India Innovation which replaced making in India!


    Just remember,during last Loksabha elections,Congress candidate from Amritsar Captain Amarinder Singh on targeted at his BJP counterpart Arun Jaitley in the Bhopal Gas tragedy case and said that he was the lawyer of the Dow Chemicals. He said that thousands of people died in the tragedy and Jaitley must decide on whether he is with the people of Bhopal or that company.Jaitly was defeated and was later made the Defence and Finance minister double dhamaka.As the minister of defence,he is credited to allow cent pecnt FDI in defence production!He signalled green all the deals waiting nod.


    Mind you,after Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley has come under the scanner as documents accessed by CNN-IBN show that Jaitley too appeared as counsel for Dow Chemicals - the company that took over Union Carbide.

    While defending the company, Jaitley had even argued said that since it was a different company, Dow Chemicals did not have to inherit the liabilities of Union Carbide after acquiring it.

    The fresh revelation comes within a week after CNN-IBN exposed how Abhishek Singhvi acted as a counsel for the company in 2006.

    Arun Jaitley too advised Dow on Bhopal

    The fresh revelation comes within a week after CNN-IBN exposed how Abhishek Singhvi had counselled the company in 2006.


    Now just consider how the Narendra Modi government is planning  on rationalising tax structure in whose interest just because is the cent percent Hindutva attempting to make budgetary proposals more transparent to ensure there is no concealed fiscal deficit in the forthcoming Budget 2015.That is it as said the corporate lawyer alias the finance minister of India Arun Jaitley who has the topmost priority to snsex and RBI governor obliged him trading on the cutting highway! Now,it is promoter builder boom boom raj!


    That is why working as dual SIM,the Alibaba of Indian politics as in capacity of Information and Broadcasting Minister on Sunday asked the media to avoid conducting parallel trials while reporting subjudice matters.As enough is never enough and to ensure taht everything in the emerging free market remains decontrolled,Jaitley blocks the flow of information so that the free flow of foreign capital and black money recycled as well should be ensured.


    Just understand the phenomenon of transformation as a record 11.5 crore bank accounts have been opened in just over four months under the Jan Dhan Yojana, covering 99.74 per cent of households and setting the stage for a major transformation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today.


    "The success of PMJDY sets the stage for a major transformation for the people & will enhance India's progress," Modi tweeted, while describing the scheme a "unprecedented success".

    Announcing the financial inclusion scheme in his first Independence Day speech last year, Modi had set a target to open bank accounts for 7.5 crore poor persons by January 26, 2015. The target was later increased to 10 crore accounts.
    however the Business Standard story says something else.Just see:

    Addressing global dignitaries at the recently concluded Seventh Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit in Gandhinagar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he wants to make India the easiest place to do business. "Ease of doing business in India is a prime concern for you and us. I assure you that we are working very seriously on it," he said. "We want to make them not only easier than earlier, not only easier than the rest, but, we want to make them the easiest."


    But that's easier said than done. The 2015 World Bank group's Doing Business index ranked India at 142, down from 140, which it was the year before. Analysing the ten different parameters - starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering a property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, resolving insolvency - the World Bank group gives individual rankings for each one of these, which collectively provides the final rank. Experts say if India is to improve its overall rank in Doing Business index, it is important to fix issues when it comes to trading across borders, dealing with construction permits, and enforcing contracts. India is dismally ranked 126, 184 and 186 in trading across borders, dealing with construction permits, and enforcing contracts, respectively.

    Delivering the first Justice J.S. Verma memorial lecture on "Freedom and responsibility of media" here, Jaitley said contours of censorship have been defied by technological developments.

    "Technological developments have defied the contours of censorship and the challenges for the media lie within, in the context of ownership patterns, financial sustainability and financial models which lead to aberrations such as paid news," he said.

    "...constructive deliberations on all issues relating to media freedom and responsibility need to be initiated amongst all stakeholders," he said.

    Talking about challenges the media faces these days, the minister said that in the last two decades, the conventional contours of issues pertaining to freedom and responsibility of media had changed "due to changes in the nature and content of media and the definition of news".

    "The challenge before the media is to ensure quality and credibility along with the responsibility to play the role of an educator in handling sensitive issues," he said.

    Jaitley said the challenge for the media also lay in maintaining high ethical standards on the issue of conflict of interest "where it needs to be very careful".

    Media responsibility was critical in addressing matters related to security, social tension, privacy of the individual and issues that involved subjudice connotation, he said.

    During the programme, organised by the News Broadcasters Association, the minister also recalled the outstanding contribution of Justice Verma in the domains of human rights, gender equality, probity and media freedom as the "conscience keeper of the society".

    'I cried every day': inside Sri Lanka's 'No Fire Zones'

    Five years ago Dr Varatharajah Thariajah was given his freedom in exchange for refuting war crimes allegations against the Sri Lankan government. Today he tells Channel 4 News a different story.

    At the end of the Sri Lankan civil war the government of Sri Lanka held a press conference, writes Callum Macrae. Five doctors who had been trapped in the war zones – and had told the world of the awful suffering of the trapped civilians - were paraded in front of the world's media.

    They attacked the hospital. They refused to send medicine. They refused to send food.Dr Varatharajah Thariajah

    And what they said could not be clearer - everything they had said from within the war zone was wrong. The government had not shelled hospitals. Only a few civilians had died. All the allegations of war crimes by government forces were a lie.

    Then they were taken back into custody.

    It was an extraordinary coup for the government – and has been used to this day to counter allegations of war crimes. Only now has a very different story emerged.

    Torment and suffering

    Doctor Varatharajah Thariajah has a gentle smile and a quiet, self-effacing manner – but the stories he tells are so full of torment and human suffering they defy comprehension.

    Varatharajah was one of a handful of government doctors who in 2009, chose to remain with scores of thousands of Tamil civilians trapped in the bloody killing fields of northern Sri Lanka, in the final months of that country's 26 year long civil war.

    Blood was not given at all. Most of the time during surgery we used the patient's own blood. Autorun we call it.Dr Varatharajah Thariajah

    The government had announced a series of what they called No Fire Zones. They encouraged over 300,000 desperate Tamil civilians to gather there – and then systematically shelled them.

    For Varatharajah and the other doctors it was the beginning of a descent into hell. And the government, he says, deliberately made that worse by shelling the hospitals and denying them humanitarian supplies.

    "They attacked the hospital. They refused to send medicine. They refused to send food," he says.

    The most serious shortages were of anaesthetics, antibiotics and blood – shortages which led to terrible and unnecessary suffering among the survivors.

    We gave some pain injection, and we thought he would die within about one hour - but he took a long time to die.Dr Varatharajah Thariajah

    "If a person needed 100mg of anaesthetics, we just gave them 25 or 30mg. We did most of the surgery with a minimum of anaesthesia." says the doctor.

    "Blood was not given at all. Most of the time during surgery we used the patient's own blood. Autorun we call it."

    It was an extraordinary procedure, by which the doctors simply fed wounded patients' own blood directly back into them.

    But before long the desperate shortages of anaesthetics, antibiotics and blood forced the doctors to make even more brutal choices. Choices about who they could actually save with the minimal resources available – and who they couldn't.

    Unbearable decisions

    The decisions were unbearably painful.

    "I can remember one 60-year-old man came with two legs amputated very close to the hip. There was no time, no anaesthetic for surgery so we decided to allow him to die.

    "We gave some pain injection, and we thought he would die within about one hour - but he took a long time to die. He crawled here and there, he moved all over the place."

    He said the president and Gotabaya, they are angry with you because you informed about the whole situation to the media.Dr Varatharajah Thariajah

    Varatharajah is not a man to easily admit to his personal pain – but he does so now, with quiet understatement.

    "The doctors and myself, we got severely affected on that day."

    But still the pressure got worse. As each new temporary hospital was shelled and abandoned, the decisions they had to make became more and more agonizing.

    "One mother came - nearly nine months pregnant. She was wounded - pierced in her side."

    Doctor Varatharajah Thariajah

    The wound was awful beyond comprehension.

    "On her abdomen you could see the small arm on the outside," he said. "The patient was alive and the husband was holding her in his lap. He is constantly asking us to treat her.

    "When we are moving here and there, he is always hanging on my leg saying 'Doctor please come and see my wife - please take her to theatre and do the caesarian.' But we knew that even if we started the surgery, she would die on the bed. So we allowed her to die."

    The doctor sits quietly.

    "I've got several experience like that," he says eventually. "And I'm thinking if that is my wife, or my sister or my relative, how can we allow that patient to die? But there were not any options during that time. But we would have been able to treat them if we'd had enough anaesthetic, if we'd even had blood."

    The UN now estimates that perhaps 40,000, died in those last terrible months – some estimates say the real figure could be 70,000.

    "Did you cry a lot?", we ask. "Yes," he says. "Every day."

    The price of freedom

    Eventually the war drew to its awful, apocalyptic end. The traumatised survivors - far from being treated like the rescued hostages the government claimed they were - were rounded up and transported to internment camps built by the UN as accomodation for the internally displaced, but turned into heavily guarded prisons by the government.

    The doctors were taken into captivity too – but they were transported to the notorious interrogation and torture centre on the fourth floor of the Criminal Investigation Department in the Sri Lankan capital Columbo.

    And there, fearful and disorientated – in Dr Vartharajah's case seriously injured by shrapnel - the doctors say they were given a yet one more painful choice.

    They were told that unless they publicly withdrew everything they'd said in the war zone, they would face years in jail.

    Dr Varatharajah claims he was told by his interrogator – a senior military intelligence officer - that his freedom was dependent on President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his brother, the Defence Secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

    "He said the president and Gotabaya, they are angry with you because you informed about the whole situation to the media."

    Only if he withdrew those allegations he could be freed. With a wife and young child to care for, Dr Varatharajah had no choice but to comply. Only now that he has escaped from Sri Lanka, he says, is he able to speak freely at last.

    ভারতবর্ষে বর্তমান জ্বলন্ত সমস্যা হচ্ছে হিন্দু ধর্মের চতুর্বর্ণ ব্যাবস্থার নিচু তলার অর্থাৎ শূদ্র বর্ণের শূদ্র অতিশূদ্র জনগন সেচ্ছায় এবং কিছুটা লোভের কারনে খৃষ্ট ধর্ম গ্রহণ করছে। অন্য দিকে যারা খৃষ্ট ধর্মে যেতে চায় না অথচ হিন্দু ধর্মেও থাকতে চায় না তারা সেচ্ছায় বৌদ্ধ ধর্ম গ্রহণ করছে।
    খৃষ্ট ধর্মের প্রচারকগন ভারতের গরিব ও বর্ণব্যবস্থার জাতাকলে নিষ্পেষিত মানুষদের লক্ষ লক্ষ টাকা এবং সাথে জমি কিনে বাড়ি তৈরী করে দিয়ে খৃষ্টান তৈরি করে নিচ্ছে।মানুষও হাসি মুখে গ্রহণ করছে।শিক্ষা ও আর্থিক সহায়তা পেয়ে মানুষ খুশি হচ্ছে।যে ধর্মে মানুষ তার অধিকার পায় না, মানুষের থেকে পশুর মূল্য বেশি, জানোয়ারের সম্মান বেশী, সেই ধর্ম ত্যাগ করাই তারা শ্রেয় মনে করে ধর্ম পরিবর্তন করছে।

    বৌদ্ধ ধর্ম আড়াই হাজার বছর ধরে সাম্য, মৈত্রী, বন্ধুতা ও ন্যায়ের বানী প্রচার করে আসছে।"সম্রাট অশোক" এর সময় ভারত শ্রীলংকা, আফগান্থিন সহ সমস্ত ভারতবর্ষ বৌদ্ধ ময় ছিল।"সম্রাট অশোক" এর নাতি বৃহদ্রথ এর হত্যার পর ভারত বর্ষে বৌদ্ধ ধর্মের প্রভাব কম হতে থাকে এবং বৌদ্ধ ধর্মের ব্রাম্মণীকরন শুরু হয় । অষ্টম শতাব্দীতে তৎকালীন শংকরাচার্য কুমারীল ভট্ট দ্বারা তথাগত গৌতম বুদ্ধ কে বিষ্ণুর নবম অবতার ঘোষনা করার পর ভারতবর্ষে বৌদ্ধ ধর্মের উপর ভিষন প্রভাব পড়ে ।প্রায় সম্পূর্ণ ভাবে বৌদ্ধ ধর্মের ব্রাম্মণীকরন হয়ে যায়।তা সত্ত্বেও ব্রাহ্মণ পন্ডিত ও শাস্ত্রকারগন বৌদ্ধ ধর্মকে ও বৌদ্ধ ধর্মাবলম্বী দের বিধর্মী বলেই আখ্যায়িত করতে থাকে।এর প্রমাণ বিভিন্ন " পুরাণ" ও ধর্ম গ্রন্থ থেকে পাওয়া যায়।

    গত কয়েক বছর ধরে মহারাষ্ট্রে শিক্ষা, চাকরি ইত্যাদি ক্ষেত্রে মারাঠা সমাজের সংরক্ষণের দাবিতে আন্দোলন চলছে । এই আন্দোলনের মাঝে এক প্রভাবশালী মারাঠা নেতা বলেছিলেন " মারাঠা দের শেষ শরন স্থান বৌদ্ধ ধর্ম।" এতে বোঝা যায় মানুষ হিন্দু ধর্মের জাঁতাকল থেকে মুক্তি পেতে চায়।

    তাছাড়া প্রতিনিয়ত অসংখ্য মানুষ জাত পাতের হিন্দু ধর্ম ত্যাগ করে সেচ্ছায় বৌদ্ধ ধর্ম গ্রহণ করছে । যদিও সে খবর প্রচার হয় না তাই দেশবাসী সে বিষয়ে অবগত হতে পারে না । কিন্তু ধর্মান্তরন হচ্ছেই।

    এবার আসি রাষ্ট্রীয় সয়ংসেবক সংঘ (RSS) বিশ্ব হিন্দু পরিষদ(VHP) বজরংদল এর কথায়।
    RSS, VHP, বজরংদল চায় এই ধর্মান্তরন বন্ধ করতে।মুসলমান তাদের কাছে মাথা ব্যাথা নয়।মাথা ব্যাথা হল " বৌদ্ধ ধর্ম" ও "খৃষ্টান ধর্ম"।উত্তর প্রদেশের মুসলমানদের "ঘর বাপসি " ছিল একটা সাজানো নাটক ।আসলে সেখানে একজনও মুসলমান ছিল কি না সন্দেহ।
    কিন্তু তার পর সংবাদপত্র, টেলিভিশন, জনসভায় RSS, VHP, BJP এর বিভিন্ন নেতা বিভিন্ন যায়গায় এমনকি RSS প্রমুখ মোহন ভাগবত কোলকাতা সহ বিভিন্ন জায়গায় বলে বেড়াচ্ছে ,ঘর বাপসিতে যদি আপত্তি থাকে তাহলে সরকার পার্লামেন্টে আইন তৈরী করুক ধর্ম পরিবর্তন রোধ করতে। RSS, VHP, BJP বিধর্মী মুসলমানদের হিন্দু করতে মোটেই আগ্রহী নয়।তারা চায় আইন করে হিন্দু ধর্মের অবক্ষয় রোধ করতে।যাতে করে কেউ ইচ্ছা করলেই বৌদ্ধ, খৃষ্টান বা অন্য কোন ধর্ম গ্রহণ করতে না পারে।আইন তৈরি হলে যদি কেউ সেচ্ছায় ধর্ম পরিবর্তন করতে চায় তাহলে তাকে প্রথমে উপযুক্ত কারন দেখিয়ে জেলা শাসকের কাছের থেকে অনুমতি নিতে হবে।অন্যথা ধর্ম পরিবর্তন করা যাবে না।

    শ্রী দেবেন্দ্রলাল বিশ্বাস ঠাকুর এর ভাষায় বলতে গেলে বলতে হয়, -
    " মিথ্যা মসল্লার ব্রাহ্মণ্য দোকান বর্ণাশ্রম যে ধর্মের শিরোপা, জন্মগত কারন ভিন্ন অন্যেরা যে ধর্ম গ্রহণ করতে পারে না, গ্রহণ করলেও তাকে ব্রাহ্মণ্যবাদী হিন্দুত্বের দাবিদারগণ স্বধর্মীয় বলে মেনে নেন না, যে ধর্মের কোন সঙ্ঘা নেই, 24 জন অবতার এবং বহু মহাপুরুষ এসেও যে ধর্মকে কলুষ মুক্ত করে সুস্থিত করতে পারেন নি, যে ধর্ম বিশেষ কোন ধরাবাঁধা সর্বসম্মত নিয়মের নিগেঢ়বন্দী নয়, বৃদ্ধির ঐক্য নেই, বৃদ্ধি নেই, আছে ক্ষয়িষ্ণুতা, যে ধর্মের লোকেরা ছয় হাজার শাতশ তেতাল্লিশটি সম্পদায়ে বিভক্ত, একের সঙ্গে অন্যের বিবাহ বন্ধনের শাস্ত্রীয় বিধি নেই, যে ধর্মের নাম ভিন্ন ধর্মিয় বিদেশীদের প্রদত্ত তাহাই ভারতের সংখ্যা গরিষ্ঠ লোকের গর্বিত হিন্দু ধর্ম। এক কথায় জাতিভেদ প্রথা তুলে দিলে যে ধর্ম শূন্যে বিলীন হয়ে যায় তাহাই ভারত বিভাজক হিন্দু ধর্ম।
    আরবীয় বেপারীরা চোর ডাকাত অর্থে 'হিন্দু' শব্দটা ব্যবহার করত।সেই শব্দটাই ভারতবাসীর প্রিয়।"

    হিন্দু ধর্মের এই ক্ষয়িষ্ণুতা কে বন্দ করার জন্যই RSS, BJP, VHP চায় আইন তৈরি করতে।আইন করে হিন্দু ধর্মের ক্ষয় রোধ করতে।

    ऐसा नहीं है 
    कि जो कुछ फिलिस्तीन में हो रहा है 
    या इराक में 
    या फिर दुनिया के किसी और कोने में घट रही 
    दुर्घटनाएं नहीं घट रही हैं यहाँ 
    मेरे देश में

    जितना विस्तार है भूगोल धरती का 
    उससे कहीं भी कमतर नहीं हैं दुर्घटनाओं का विस्तार 
    बस सीमित हैं हमारी जानकारी 
    नज़रें कुछ कमजोर 
    हम अक्सर ख्यालों में करते हैं सैर 
    और बिखराते हैं संवेदनाओं का प्रसाद

    मैं अक्सर पहुँच जाता हूँ अफ्रीका महाद्वीप के देशों में 
    वहां के जंगलों से गायब होते जानवरों की गिनती करने 
    पहुँच जाता हूँ विशाल रेगिस्तानों में 
    पहचानने की कोशिश करता हूँ आगुन्तकों के पैरों के निशान

    फिर लौट कर पहुँच जाता हूँ 
    विदर्भ के किसानों के बीच 
    उनके खेतों में भी पाता हूँ ठीक वहीं पद चिह्न

    चाहे छत्तीसगढ़ के जंगल हों 
    या हों कालाहांडी का क्षेत्र 
    या भूख , गरीबी और शोषण से प्रभावित दुनिया का कोई और हिस्सा हों 
    आगुन्तक वही हैं 
    उनके पद चिन्ह एक हैं 
    हर जगह .

    सोनी सोरी पर छत्तीसगढ़ में नयी धाराओं में एक नया मामला दर्ज़ किया गया है .

    पिछले दिनों पुलिस ने नदी में नहाते हुए एक निर्दोष आदिवासी की गोली मार कर हत्या कर दी थी .

    पुलिस ने इस मामले में उल्टा नक्सलियों के खिलाफ़ रिपोर्ट लिख दी थी .

    इस बात से मृतक के परिवार जन और ग्रामीण इस मामले की शिकायत करने कलेक्टर और एस पी के पास जाने के लिए निकले .

    ग्रामीणों ने सोनी सोरी को साथ रहने के लिए कहा .

    सोनी सोरी ने प्रशासन को आदिवासियों के इस पैदल मार्च की पहले से ही सूचना दे दी

    आदिवासियों के इस पैदल मार्च में बड़ी संख्या में आदिवासियों को देख कर प्रशासन के हाथ पैर फूल गए और रास्ते में ही प्रशासन और पुलिस वालों ने लिखित आश्वासन देकर आदिवासियों के पैदल मार्च को वहीं रोक दिया .

    लेकिन प्रशासन ने बाद में सोनी सोरी के ऊपर दंगा फसाद फैलाने और सरकारी आदेश के उलंघन करने की धाराओं में मामला दर्ज़ कर दिया .

    सोनी पर धारा १४७, १४९,१८८ धारा लगाईं है

    सोनी ने प्रशासन को यह मुकदमा दर्ज़ करने के लिए धन्यवाद दिया है .

    इसका मतलब यह है कि सरकार आदिवासी की हत्या भी करेगी .

    विरोध करने वालों पर भी मुकदमे करेगी .

    किसी आदिवासी को मुंह भी नहीं खोलने देगी .

    आदिवासियों की ज़मीने छीन कर अमीर उद्योगपतियों को देने के लिए यह सब करना बहुत ज़रूरी है

    " कायाशुद्धी पर्याप्त नाही "
    एकदा तथागत श्रावस्ती येथे वास्तव्याला होते . त्याचवेळी संगारव नावाचा ब्राम्हणहि तेथे राहत होता. तो जलशुद्धीप्रती श्रद्धावान होता. तो जलशुद्धीचे आचरण करणारा होता. रात्रंदिन प्राय स्नान करणे हीच त्याची प्रकृती आणि प्रवृत्ती होती.
    एके दिवशी सकाळी स्थविर आनंद चीवर धारण करून आणि पात्र घेऊन श्रावस्ती नगरीत चारीकेस्तव प्रस्थान करीत असता . श्रावस्ती नगरीत फिरून भिक्षा प्राप्त केली . अन्न ग्रहण केले आणि परत येताना तो तथागतांकडे गेला . त्याने तथागतांना वंदन केले व बाजूला आसनस्थ झाला . आणि तथागतांना सांगू लागला कि, या श्रावस्ती नगरीत संगारव नावाचा ब्राम्हण आहे तो जलशुद्धीप्रती श्रद्धावान आहे. तो स्नानादींच्या माध्यमातून निरंतर जलशुद्धी प्रक्रियेत मग्न असतो. तो रात्रंदिन स्नान आणि शुद्धी यातच रममाण असतो. हे तथागता , आपण त्या ब्राम्हणावर अनुकंपा करावी आणि त्या ब्राम्हणाची एकदा भेट घ्यावी .
    तथागतांनी मौन राहूनच समंती दर्शविली . दुसऱ्या दिवशी तथागत पहाटेच संगारावाच्या निवासस्थानी गेले. तेथे गेल्यावर प्रस्तुत आसनावर तथागत आसनस्थ झाले. 
    त्यानंतर संगारव ब्राम्हण तथागतांकडे आला . त्याने तथागतांना वंदन केले. व तथागतांच्या निकट तो आसनस्थ झाला. त्यानंतर तथागत त्याला म्हणाले , तू जलशुद्धीवर श्रद्धा करतो, तू स्नानादि करून कायाशुद्धी करतोस . तू रात्रंदिन स्नानाशुद्धीत मग्न असतोस असे लोक म्हणतात. हे सत्य आहे काय ? 
    त्यावर तो ब्राम्हण म्हणाला " हे श्रमण गौतमा हे सत्य आहे " 
    " तथागत त्याला म्हणाले " हे ब्राम्हण , रात्रंदिन अशी स्नानशुद्धी करून तुला कोणता लाभ होईल असे तुला वाटते " ? 
    तो ब्राम्हण म्हणाला " श्रमण गौतमा , त्याचे असे आहे . मी दिवसभरात जे पापकर्म करतो ते मी सांयसमयी स्नान करून धुवून टाकतो . आणि रात्री मी जे काही पापकर्म करतो ते दुसऱ्या दिवशी प्रातासमयी स्नान करून ती धुवून टाकतो . स्नानादींच्या शुद्धी करण्यात हाच लाभ मी पाहतो . हाच लाभ मला दिसतो ."
    त्यावर तथागत त्याला म्हणाले , " धम्म हेच जलाशय होय. हे जलाशय स्वच्छ आहे निर्मल आहे ."
    " शास्त्रांचे ज्ञाता जे जलाशयात स्नान करतात त्यांचे प्रत्येक अंग शुद्ध होते आणि ते पैलतीरी
    जातात ." यावर ब्राम्हण संगारव तथागतांना म्हणाला , " श्रमण गौतमा , हे अद्भुत आहे श्रमण गौतमाने अनुगामी म्हणून माझा स्विकार करावा . या क्षणापासून जीवनपर्यंत तथागताने मला आपला शरणागत आणि उपासक करून घ्यावे . "

    What was Gandhi's Evaluation of RSS?

     

    Ram Puniyani

     

    With the new ruling dispensation, Modi Sarkar, attempts are being made to present Gandhi in a light which is favorable to the RSS combine. First, the Swachata Abhiyan (Cleanliness drive) was inaugurated on Gandhi Jayanti 2nd October, then it was claimed that RSS had nothing to do with Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse. Now; efforts are on to extract a certificate from Gandhi on the lines which should mean that Gandhi thought 'RSS very good'. In this direction a multimedia program is being shown in 'Dandi Kutir' which was inaugurated by the Prime Minister Mr. Modi recently, (January 2015). In this multimedia presentation in the exhibition it is claimed that Gandhi had come to RSS camp in Wardha in 1930, along with Ghanshyamdas Birla. Gandhi was very impressed by its functioning of RSS and wanted to meet Dr. Hedgewar, the founder of RSS. As per these claims Mahatma did meet the RSS founder the next day.

     

    Irrespective of these claims the definitive knowledge is something else. On one side what is known is that RSS was very critical of Gandhi's politics, his broadening of the national movement to include the average people of the country in the non- cooperation movement. This movement was the major event which awakened the people of India and linked them with anti British movement. This was the major landmark in the step towards 'India as a nation in the making'. This major phenomenon of Indian nationalism came under heavy criticism from RSS leadership. RSS founder was critical of Gandhi for his efforts in the direction of 'Hindu Muslim unity' and this mass movement, non cooperation movement. Hedgewar went on to write, 'As a result of non cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi, the enthusiasm in the country was cooling down and the evils of social life, which that movement generated, were menacingly raising their head. 'As per him 'it is due to this movement that Brahmin–non Brahmin conflict was nakedly on view'. (C.P.Bhishikar in Keshav Sangh Nirmata, Pune 1979, p 7) What he is calling Brahmin-Non Brahmin conflict was actually the struggle of dalits for their lands rights and social dignity, for change in graded hierarchy of caste. Hedgekar, true to the RSS ideology of upholding the values of declining-pre-industrial social system was against the movement. This non Brahman movement was actually challenging the status quo of caste relationships in the society.

     

    Hedgewar's successor, Golwalkar, went further to criticize the Indian national movement as being just anti British. Golwalkar writes, 'The theories of territorial nationalism and common danger, which formed the basis of our concept of nation, had deprived us of the positive and inspiring content of our real Hindu nationhood…Anti Britishism was equated with patriotism and nationalism, this reactionary view had disastrous effects upon the entire course of freedom movement, its leaders and its people." (Bunch of thoughts Bangalore 1996, p. 138) This is so far as what Sangh thought of Gandhi and his struggles for uniting 'India as a Nation state' with the ideology of Indian nationalism.

     

    Now how did Gandhi look at RSS? As RSS for long was working 'quietly', there are not too many references about the role of RSS during this period. Also since it was not a part of National movement we can't comment about its role in that movement. However whatever one can glean from the available sources one can say that Gandhi's thoughts were not favorable to RSS. In Harijan on 9th August 1942, Gandhi writes, "I had heard of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and its activities; and also know that it was a communal organization", this was in response to the slogans and some speech against 'other' community, about which a complaint was made.  In this Gandhi is referring to the drill of RSS volunteers, who shouted that this Nation belongs to Hindus alone and once the British leave we will subjugate the non Hindus. In response to the rowdyism indulged by communal organizations he writes, "I hear many things about RSS. I have heard it said the Sangh is at the root of all this mischief."(Gandhi, xcviii, 320-322)

     

    Amongst the recorded opinions about Gandhi's evaluation of RSS, the most authentic is the one of his secretary Pyarelal. Pyarelal narrates an event in the wake of 1946 riots. A member of Gandhi's entourage had praised the efficiency, discipline, courage and capacity for hard work shown by RSS cadres at Wagah, a major transit camp for Punjab refugees. Gandhi quipped back, 'but don't forget, even so had Hitler's Nazis and Fascists under Mussolini' Gandhi characterized RSS as a communal body with a totalitarian outlook' (Pyarelal, Mahatma Gandhi: The Last Phase, Ahmadabad, page 440)

     

    After independence, in the context of Delhi violence (Rajmohan Gandhi, Mohandas, page 642), Gandhi confronted the RSS chief Golwalkar, with reports of the RSS hand in Delhi violence, Denying the allegations Golwalkar also said that RSS did not stand for killing the Muslims. Gandhi asked him to say so publically. Golwalkar said Gandhi could quote him on this. Gandhi did this in his prayer talk that evening, but he told Golwalkar that statement ought to come from him. Later he told Nehru that he did not find Golwalkar convincing.'

     

    Today having occupied the seat of power, RSS is desperate to link itself to the legacy of freedom movement from which it had kept aloof. It had criticized the freedom movement as people from all the communities were part of It. RSS aims for Hindu nation, the way Muslim League's goal was Muslim nation. Today treading a careful path it wants to appropriate Gandhi for which a 'certificate' is needed from Gandhi. So his sentence is being manipulated to highlight 'hard disciplined work' and to hide the rider that 'so had been the 'Nazis of Hitler and Fascists of Mussolini.' The basic contradiction in the two types of nationalisms should guide us as what was Gandhi's attitude was towards RSS, despite the well manicured claims from RSS combine.
