The results of elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telanga and Mizoram are a wonderful case study in who won and who lost. Going beyond apparent victory and defeat it is indicative of the very complex Indian political eco system and what influences it. While scholar analysts have examined it from their point of view, I have this humble contribution to the literature on current political affairs. Hope readers enjoy it. Pl give your comments so that required improvements can be made in future as we stand to watch real battles in 2019.
Too much of commercialisation of day to day living is impacting physical and emotional health of the people. On the one hand are new life threatening diseases and on the other are life style diseases. One is unable to enjoy truly. It needs a revival of social and religious roots. For a good living one does not need all the wealth of the world- only a little amount but lots of stress free time.
India has become such a soft state in leass than 70 years that enemy agents give a call to break the country into pieces from the Jawaharlal Nehru university, Delhi. They have the arrogance to celebrate the partitioner of India in AMU. The former Vice President has openly advocated views that weaken the country. They hate anybody bold and devoted to development, integration or unity of India like Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel or his follower like prime minister Narendra Modi. However, world peace needs a strong India to contribute decisively towards achieving the goal. There would have been no Kashmir problem or Pakistan sponsored terrorism in Kashmir had Sardar Patel been allowed to take decision. But for Sardar Patel, there would have been only Kashmirs in India today. He showed determination, resoluteness and courage to extinguish any such aspirations among the Maharajas, Rajas and Nawabs.
The independence of the judiciary is no “dogma”. It should not degenerate into a superior government or superior parliament. Trends are very disturbing. Danger is judges might be tempted to act judge, lawyer and journalist in one on the Bench. The public jury or People’s Court does not permit it.
Who is responsible to maintain and observe the sanctity of the principle of checks and balances in India: government or judiciary? Should the court waste its precious time in matters of administration, vigilance and other such matters and let judicial matters pend for decades? Can the Supreme Court take over the executive responsibility also in addition to its judicial functions? The citizens have faced the crises of confidence in the legislature and executive but not with the judiciary, which is its last hope. Decision making is controversial because it is simply not possible always to apply judicial standards in political, diplomatic, economic and security matters, though it is all subject to judicial scrutiny whenever challenged. That fear of judicial test is enough to keep a tight vigil and promote fairness, equity, natural justice and transparency in public services. When will the court start appreciating the sacrifice or martyrdom of civil servants doggedly fighting to save the public money, interest or even security of the country? Had it been so, it would have rewarded those who tried to save the public money stolen in the Bofors scam by Quatrocchi or Nirav Modi, Mallya, Chowksi gangs. Such officers are silenced. Why?
I have been working on the manuscript of my book for the past few weeks and could not devote time to Vaaniyog as much as I should have. However, significant developments during this period were covered in mini-articles published on the popular website whispersinthecorridors.com I would like to share them with my readers. The UN […]
The strange phenomenon is that none of the swindlers could cheat any private bank- they committed robbery on public sector banks only. It was easy for them to form criminal nexus with ministers, bureaucrats and bankers and indulge in all kinds of unlawful activities as exposed in cases of Kingfisher Airlines owned by Vijay Mallya to the tune of Rs. 9000 Crore, Mehul Choksi and Navin Modi of Gitajali group of companies to the tune of approximately 16000 Crore, Rotomac group of Bhandari and many other
