Dance of the monkeys…Hail Democracy

This is a very short post I am writing because i am completely disgusted by our politicians and worst of alll Media..

What Media asks Digivay singh:..Is RSS linked to Mumbai Blasts…

Digvijay replies–I Have proof that RSS is linked to violence but not in this case(He said Violence..)

What Media reports–Digvijay singh says RSS is terrorist organization and has a hand in Mumbai Blasts..

How RSS reacts…We are not violent and we will prove it by breaking chairs and disrupting any place where Digvijay comes….How dare he call us terrorists and how dare he say we had a hand in Blasts

Mumbai Attacks 2011
Mumbai doesnt need to know how sorry you are for their loss or how you stopped 99% attack or why Digvijay said RSS is terrorist. Please STOP this nonsense

Am I watching a bunch of monkeys here?…Is it me or has the media gone Mad or they think we are soo stupid? And RSS folks..Did u even listen to what Digvijay said? Worst of al,Digvijay singh,Stop it dude..You have something bring it out…. Help wounded Mumbaikars and stop these idiotic things.

RSS you call yourselves swayam sevak sangh? Please go to Mumbai and help people rather than breaking chairs> Spend your energies on making Mumbai safe, you have such a huge bunch of followers, ask them to train teh common man how to be more vigilant, Oh sorry Thats not YOUR JOB , your job is to simply make ruckus you are no better than the people you oppose

Media—Ok seriously NDTV ,ZEE you guys seriously should think of switching careers to daily soaps.heights of sensationalization

I Am yet to see any mature reaction from anyone ….Why can we have 1 just 1 of these 3 (govt,opposition and media) behave sensibly?

What i wanted to see and here is my Wish list or request list, whatever you want to call it

1. These So Called media doing something to help out the poor victims rather than showing tears and asking them about there loss

2. Government–Ask mr Diggy to Shut Up ,help mumbaikars and catch those Bloody terrorist and DONT MAKE ANY STATEMENTS condoling the victims and telling how good your police has been. Do YOUR JOB we are smart enough to see that. And Please Ask your pseudo Gandhi “Youth Icon” not to behave like Prime Minister and not to pass any statements about how many terror attacks were stopped. How does he even know? Is he the Home minister?

3.Opposition: You can have your political leverage later, Please Be united for once don’t put oil in fire, Do you know we indian people can see what you guys are doing? Atleast let Mumbai Heal partially.

4.Media–You are the biggest culprits, Dont show me the clippings of all terror attacks with re enactments and falshing headlines where you say one word/half sentences at a time

Kya Seekha Hamne isse

Kya hum surakshit hain

Kya ab mumbai kabhi so payega

Are you guys crazy?Are you making a Film? If yes ,please leave this job get into film industry, How would you ract if one of your family memebers was a victim of this?

Just DONT ASK whose responsible from our stupid politicians, Just focus on the tragedy at hand,Think about ways to help, educate people on how to be more alert, run educational campaigns but sorry THATS NOT YOUR JOB Right?

you constantly report how politicians are playing blame game and trying to take political leverage out of this tragedy, but what are you doing? Showing that again and again, be sensible.You think its wrong? Just dont AIR it, but sorry YOU HAVE TO AIR IT, thats what gives you TRPs right?

You know its ethically and morally wrong to take advantage but YOU WILL DO IT , I am sorry you are the biggest culprits. Politicians might have their Moral Compass aligned wrong but you claim to have it right and still do it.  You are like a prostitute who is protesting against a lady wearing jeans. Wow hands down to you

For once act mature, don’t add slide effects and remove your actor cum reporters ,get your act straight, you have the power to make a difference,stop making a fool of yourself and underestimating the intelligence of indians, we are SMART enough

Can anyone of you do this, Anyone means anyone. Just one person please act maturely

I wanted to keep this short enough but somehow I cant stop myself.Is it just me?

Battle Won Not the war!!

 

Finally Government has relented and has agreed to issue a formal order to constitute a committee composed both of beauracracy and people from Civit society to draft the Lokpal bill.

Battle Won not the WARThis is a Huge victory for India and Anna. But before we celebrate and down our defenses ,remember its just the begining. We need to now make sure that the final bill that comes out is as Anna and India wants and is passed immidiatly by the parliament.

It wont be easy guys,its still the start. We have won the first battle but the WAR is still ON. Justice delivered late is no justice at all,the time to punish the corrupt is NOW not later.

So here is what we need to do. The momentum needs to be ON. Keep asking questions ,whats happening? Is it moving swiftly? Is teh government trying to delay it?

All the momentum that has been build up needs to continue. Dont assume victory ,its just the begining.

Five ways to support Anna Hazare

For all those people who want to support Anna Hazare but dont know what to do ,here is a small list of things you can do

(all those who want to know of the movement check my previous blog http://madhurchadha.com/2011/04/07/why-anna-hazares-victory-is-so-essential-for-us/)

India For Anna Hazare
India is Behind Anna Hazare

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Educate yourself: Anna Hazare is fighting for something called a Lokpal Bill. This bill essentially gives us enough teeth to fight corruption. The government has presented a shamelessly toothless bill which like all other anti corruption bills is a sham and totally biased towards the corrupt. Educate yourself and others around you on what the bill is all about .Know ad let others around you know why it is important You can find the details on

http://www.annahazare.org/

or simpler versions on

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Hazare#Lokpal_Bill_movement

 

Join Anna: Go join Anna, you may not fast but you can be physically present there to show support. More the numbers more the pressure

Have Solidarity Marches/Dharnas in your cities colleges: Another way to educate is to have solidarity Dharna liek Anna’s in you cities/villages/Companies. Does it seems like a waste of time?? Well if you can leave work and celebrate India’s world cup victory ,this my dear friends in much more important. This will not only spread the movement but also help to keep it alive

 

Blog/tweet/write about it: Yes ..sign all petitions,write a blog,tweet about it Like every video of Anna. Let the government know that people are following,this is not a simple dharna but a new revolution.If you have ever written a Blog you ought to write about this. Write whatever you feel,even a simple message like Anna I am with you

 

Dont let the flame Die: Every news is Big until the next Big news comes along. This is what the government is hoping for.They are hoping the euphoria will die down,they are hoping that we wil over all it  soon and Anna will be back in obscurity. What you can do is simply KEEP ASKING? Yes a simple thing like Whats happening. Keep asking to let the Media know that we are stil interested ,we are still behind Anna and this story needs to Live. Let the government know that if they do not give up they WILL give up office soon. People of India are no longer going to sit Back this time.

Its a Call for action!!!! Dont just Sit behind

Why Anna Hazare’s Victory is so essential for us

 

 

A 71 year old man named Anna Hazare has decided to fast unto death unless government  rectifies and gives more teeth to a bill called Lokpal bill ,do we really care??

Anna Hazare
Anna Hazare

Many people start fasts these days,they go on strike for every possible reason,there are dharnas everywhere so whats so special about Anna.

First of all who is Anna Hazare : Anna is a social activist of wide acclaim,he was awarded both padmabhushan(1992) and padmashri(1990) among various other awards. He served in Army and later became a social activist. He is known to be a man who can think far far ahead of most of us. He converted a village Ralegan Siddh to a model village which is a model of environmental conservation. Most notable about this village is that the entire village is powered by solar power.

So What is anna fighting for. Anna Hazare is fighting to give Indian population the legal muscle to wipe out corruption. He is fighting to give more teeth to a bill called Lokpal bill which has been hanging in parliament for more than 40 years chiefly because it will give us the power to bring to justice the corrupt politicians ,hence they never let it pass.

The current lokpal bill being considered  is a total sham ,and as one judge rightly said it is shamelessly tooth less. Here is the version of bill the government wants to give us and what Anna is demanding(from wikipedia)

Govt. Proposal

1. Lokpal will have no power to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public. It can only probe complaints forwarded by LS Speaker or RS Chairman.
2. Lokpal will only be an Advisory Body. Its part is only limited to forwarding its report to the “Competent Authority”
3. Lokpal will not have any police powers. It can not register FIRs or proceed with criminal investigations.
4. CBI and Lokpal will have no connection with each other.
5. Punishment for corruption will be minimum 6 months and maximum up-to 7 years.

Hazare’s(Civil Society) Version also known and Jan Lokpal bill

1. Lokpal will have powers to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public.
2. Lokpal will be much more than an Advisory Body. It should be granted powers to initiate Prosecution against anyone found guilty.
3. Lokpal will have police powers. To say that it will be able to register FIRs.
4. Lokpal and anti corruption wing of CBI will be one Independent body.
5. The punishment should be minimum 5 years and maximum up-to life imprisonment.

 

So how is this fight soo soo important, it is important for various reasons

. Anna Hazare is fighting for us: Even if the bill is passed possible Anna Hazare will not be able to see the corruption free India he is fighting for. He is doing it for the coming generation,he is doing it for us also he is doing what we should be doing. We keep complaining that “This is the way it is and this is how it should be” and “Nothing can change” corruption is too deep,politicians are too powerful,but we do NOTHING about it,now here is a 71 year old guy who is showing us what can be done. If he fails we fail and all the cribbers win. Out procrastination wins, we add one more thing in our list of excuses for doing nothing. He looses we loose the idealism of an entire generation

 

Anna is doing it Gandhi style, a very civilised and peaceful protest. No blocking trains,no burning buses ,no violence .

He is showing us how it should be done,how Gandhi ji used to do it, how its more about inner power than external. He is showing us that Gandhi Ideals still hold  true ,they still work. If he fails we loose trust ,we loose trust in the very basis of Indian freedom struggle.A base which is already shattered ,most people don’t understand What Gandhi ji stood for what he did. Ana Hazare is a shining example for the entire generation to come( see how to support Anna 1)

And at last ,if Anna looses this time ,we can safely say bye bye to lokapal bill for another 40 years. Politicains would never pass a bill that would make it easier for us to bring them to book ,it will take people like Hazare to build up a movement to force them and sadly we don’t see likes of him very often(also see How this is a leaderless movement).

If hazare looses today ,nothing changes,yes nothing changes for you or me. We will still live the way we live,keep cribbing about corruption in India,red tap-ism and bureaucracy but if he wins it will be a huge step to a better India .An India with no corruption,an India where even the Prime minister would be afraid of taking any bribe ,an  India where the public servants will finally be accountable to the public ,the way it should be.  An India  of our Dreams….

 

God ,let Anna Win
