    Police Commissioner system has taken almost thirty years with regard to implementation in Rajasthan and it was only in the year 2011; last year; that Police Commissioner System was implemented in Jaipur and Jodhpur. Kota still remains to have a Police Commissionerate and so is the case with Udaipur in Rajasthan. In Uttar Pradesh the earlier state government led by the Bahujan Samaj Party had promised to introduce Police Commissioner System in Lucknow which has only remained a promise and now the Samajwadi Party has come to power. As a matter of policy Police Commissioner System needs to be implemented without further delay and all state capitals in India must have it. This is essential for better policing within every state. The second important part is that of shifting the Police from the list of State Subjects to the list of Union Subjects or among the Concurrent Subjects of the Constitution of India. This is not an easy task but essential as inter-state policing is needed with the changed nature of crime. Should their be a Chief of the Indian Police a post equivalent to that of a the Chiefs of Army, Navy, Air Force and the Para Military Forces or the Intelligence Bureau and the job of the Chief of Indian Police Force shall be to manage the state police of the various States and Union Territories of India then a better system of policing should develop and crime can checked more effectively. This proposal is not very palatable and more so to the state governments of this country who do not want to fore-go their authority over the state police department. This is a point that needs to be given due consideration by the Government of India. The ratio of policeman per thousand Indian citizens is drastically low but, the police department is certainly not to be blamed for it. The VIP duties and security for which the policeman is deployed is not to his choice or approval but a decision of the administration. The policeman try their best despite constraints to discharge their duties in the best possible manner but there are various pitfalls that come. The most unfortunate aspect is that the directions of the Supreme Court have not yet been implemented by the various state governments towards police reforms and implementation of Police Commissioner System which needs to be done. The newly elected state government in Uttar Pradesh is still to take any decision on the subject with regard to implementation of Police Commissioner System in the major cities of the state viz Lucknow, Allahabad, Kanpur, Meerut, Agra, Gorakhpur etc. Police needs to be REDEFINED in INDIA.

    The constitution of India provides that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India shall be appointed by the President by warrant under his hand and seal who shall not be removed from Office, except in the like manner and on the like grounds as a Judge of Supreme Court. The scheme of separation of accounts from audit was to be implemented in selective ministries e.g. communication, civil aviation, tourism, industries and civil supplies w.e.f April 1976, where the expansion regarding the expenditures and its audit was felt to be providing certain constraint and thereby resulting into the delay in implementation of the schemes at the relevant time. The effect of the aforesaid process has resulted in the departmentalization of union accounts enacted in 1976 and the transfer of personnel was given effect by the enforcement of the Act no 59 of 1976 from Indian Audit and Accounts departments which was earlier under the control of C.& AG to the newly formed department of Civil Accounts under the Controller General of Accounts under department of Expenditure ministry of Finance. In this manner the office of C& AG which was constituted under the scheme of the constitution of India to provide the restraint to the expenditure disproportionate from its own discretion by the relevant ministries was brought under the ministry of Finance and thereby giving the unbridle powers to the ministers and thereby overthrowing the constitutional mandate securing the safeguard over the whimsical expenditure. According to the legal opinion of the constitutional experts, the diversification of the financial powers to be utilised by the sole discretion of the bureaucrats without taking into consideration the Audit objections, which could have been made under the original constitutional scheme, was directly resulting into the notion of conferring the absolute power to the respective ministry. This was against the democratic, federal and republic set-up of our Constitution. The aforesaid concept of the parliamentarian democracy, providing the fraternity to an individual in preamble of the constitution, was an attack on its basic structure.

    When an egg breaks by a power outside, life ends. But when it breaks by a power inside, life begins. Let us light up the power within and make India a happy place by joining India Redefined.“We, the people” who are said to be the government ? Can a country may survive in such a type of anomalies and undisciplined atmosphere ?
    “All the members of the court are considered as wounded, where justice is found wounded with inequity, and judges do not extract the dart of inequity from justice or remove its blot and destroy inequity, in other words where the innocent are not respected and the criminals are not punished.”
    “A virtuous and just person should never enter a court and when he does so, he should speak the truth; he who holds his tongue on seeing injustice done, or speaks contrary to truth and justice is the greatest sinner.”
    “ All the persons in that court are dead, as it were, and none of them is alive, where justice is killed by inequity and truth by falsehood in presence of its courtiers.”
    “ Justice destroyed, destroys, its destroyer; and justice preserved, preserves its preserver. Hence never destroy justice, lest being destroyed, it should destroy the destroyer of justice.”
    “ The learned regard him to be base caste who violates justice which gives all wealth and showers all blessings. Therefor no man should ever destroy justice.”
    “ In this world justice or righteousness alone is man’s friend that goes with him after death. All other things or companions part on the destruction of the body and he is detached from all company. But company of justice is never cut off.”
    Thus when injustice is done in the government and the Hon’ble Court due to inadvertent do not dart injustice and may attribute some partiality with underrepresented poor citizen and protect the criminal or doer of injustice, there may not be such deserving respect and it may circumvent the law with all inequity. Such a situation is alarming in the nation as the law which is regarded to make the citizen free from all side of encroachment, has itself is making the people enslave. Let a situation be derived by breaking the chain which is providing restriction to fight against the injustice. Although it is an iron curtain, but still one cannot blot all such hopes, as the hopes belong to a future. A single day light may shallow the darkness from our country.

    One I was traveling by a public bus in Paris. Only one seat was vacant and I occupied that. From the next bus stand, one lady (Roughly about 75-80 year old boarded the bus. Out of courtesy, I stood up of and offered my seat to that lady. The reaction from her was “Dont worry my son, you be comfortable as I can take care of myself”. I was speechless . Here in India, one the one hand, the woman claim that its a men dominated country on the other hand, they expect a special/discounted treatment every where. Be it a queue at the telephone exchange or at the Parliament. Another thing is there is no caste system in most of the developed country. Why cant we change and to begin with, the reservation for ladies followed with the caste etc. Let us prove that women are not weak and they are any time at par or better than the men. Then comes abolition of caste. Let us start with those under SC/ST or OBC etc who feel that this should GO. Let them opt for jobs etc under the normal category and tell the government that we do not need reservations any more etc etc. Then comes educating the school kids to keep the surroundings clean. In most of the western countries, whey they take the dogs out for PIPI in the morning, they go with the polythine bag. Collect the Popo in the bag and put in the designated dust bin. Here we leave our dogs to the neighboures !! I have seen the chips rappers or empty mineral water bottles thrown out of the car window while driving. Can we not take a little pain and at least educate the kids in the school so that at least after 15-20 years, things start changing….Why do we get irritated when our sisters or daughters fall in love at place or work, why do we object to intercaste marriage. The cause is caste. Why cant we try and kill the cause……Please think….Jaya

    Incredible Sacrifice to Remain Married

    Now a day in this world it’s become trend to marry a working girl, People don’t talk about dowry, if girl parents ask about dowry, they generally get answer from groom family that they are against that.
    Is it really true….Most of the time they marry working girl just to get a money minting machine for there home who can fulfill their physical, monetary, social and home need Inmost of the cases married working ladies hardcore earn money spend by her spouse or her in-laws without her concern, if she resist she get answer you don’t know how to utilize it. Its pity she can take any of her professional decision but for her hardcore earn money she cant .Whole life she see this helplessly just to keep relation go and maintain the social status of being married.
    Is this reminding us the word “Bonded Labour”.Bonded labour work day n night without any demand n desire to keep his or her master happy, is marriage is that Bond……. The reality is something else we redefine “Dowry” and ‘Bonded labour” Whole life the working married ladies see her hardcore earn money spend by others helplessly .Is this not a part of violations of “Human Rights”, is this not a part of demand of “Dowry” in indirect way….is this not a part of Mental Domestic Violence. We need to think in this issue. We need to make surway if needed change in law to give real equality to women of our society. The word civilize can use for society if both man n woman move like tyres of a cycle… grow at same pace in all aspect .Let stand together n say enough is enough lets make change.
    For the married ladies who are facing such problem: If you are not with right person, being single is “awesome”

    There is a famous old Bollywood song:- HAM LAE HAIN TOOFAN SE KASHTI NIKAL KEY,IS DESH KO RAKHNA MERE BACCHON SAMBHAL KEY. It always inspires me a lot.Present political scenario is such that there is no dearth of corruption.I know one of the ministry where ships are procured from foreign countries.Now the reason found to be that on purchase of every ship ministry get a 10% commission.Now see what is happening a great employment opportunity is being denied,which could have been done by manufacturing ships in India.We have large scale Industries and have enough capabilities to build all these.One single order is not less then 800 to 1000 crores for a small ship and for carrears the prices are a whooping 3000 crores and above.Similarly all the ministries have similar pattern of working.They only work for themselves,not for the country and not for the people of India.SHAMEFUL.I am shure time will come when citizens of India will pull them down on roads and will teach them lessons required.Now is the time JAGO INDIA JAGO

    On………. Like minded people…………. and comfort zones

    I was provoked into thinking about the subject in terms of comparisons of achievements. Some of the members pointed out to me that some of the appointed coordinators do not have the background to justify, in comparison to my own history of accomplishments in social service.
    Firstly, some or all of us, have at some stage of our lives felt content by our own achievements (even if it was a temporary feeling) and for even smaller reasons. Our egos permit us, that sense of achievement and even give us the benefit of comparing this with lesser mortals who have not put in adequate efforts. I pose this question, as to whom do you think is in a better position to contribute – the person who has achieved something and is “content”, or the person who has not tried at all?
    In my opinion, for the good of the nation and India Redefined, in particular, the latter brackets of people are more suitable candidates for induction, contribution and growth. A person who does not have the feeling of achievement, at least looks forward to an opportunity to accomplish something. A person who has “been there, done that” has a sense of contentment, which gives him the feeling of a comfort zone, which does not motivate a real solution finder.
    Another class of associations that we have been building up life long has been with “Like Minded People”. We always warm up to like minded people, be it in our professional lives, personal lives, seeking friendships, in religion, caste, color, state….you name it. We find our own comfort zones to remain content. Like minded people form and participate in political parties – be it Congress or BJP or Samajwadi. Like minded people follow a particular religion – Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity or any other. Like minded people get together to start an enterprise or business or an NGO. While it is good and even important for like minded people to come together in pursuit of an objective – we often stop respecting the other like minded people and their objectives, and sometimes even oppose the views of the others just because they belong to other group of “Like Minded People”. Don’t we often see that one political party opposing all that is being espoused by the other political party, irrespective of the validity or correctness of the issue or action? This is a typical example of “Like-minded thinking” of one group dividing people rather than uniting people. History is replete with examples in our nation formation, from Raja’s choosing like minded people as their minions, to state’s being formed on this principle….and now also being further subdivided, seeking the same lines of justification!
    It is time for us to think about the whole nation as a set of different-minded people, who want to do something positive to build this nation, with unity. We need to seek and build on this principle of unity in diversity. No longer can we think in terms of religion, caste, creed as divisive factors. Just because we speak same language and have similar food, does not mean people speaking a different language or having a different cuisine need to be opposed, made fun of or not respected. “Unity in Diversity” is what India is and what we should be accepting to make India a great nation to be proud of. We need to search for a commonality, goodness and unifying activities that can get us on a common platform of nation building. Let us get out of that comfort zone of being with like minded people and think of ways that can unite all of us with a common goal and agenda. The unity of our participants, should be a mind-changing and behavioral change, which can achieve a common goal.
    I was a person who did something for the country and felt content about it, thinking that I had done my bit. I have seen the change in perception, after getting out of my comfort zone, in starting this movement which will take us to a newer horizon, with the combined efforts of all. Let it not be a dream shared by a few, but an effort, determined by all India Redefined participants, in driving our destiny, as a nation. Let us get out of our comfort zones………..and find not just like-minded people, but interact with all towards our brighter future with anyone irrespective of any ideology, philosophy, political, regional or religious affiliations.

    It is a must in India where the reservations , social benefits are based on the caste . This cast based census will help in proper planning and implementation with transparency . If we club census and national citizen`s report , that will help in reducing the cost and the benefits as mentioned above.This caste system is not of today or imposed by British or today`s political parties. Until the last man has equal opportunity , this system of reservation based on castes will have to be there and for these reservations and so caste based census is necessary. And i do not think that any one who is getting seats / jobs on reservations will be against this census includes caste.Either remove the word caste from Indian dictionary or get on with census based on caste . May be FB members are developed so much in their civilisation ,they do not bother about caste . Caste is not the problem of the human society- today`s main problem is – humans are becoming unfair for their self interests .

    We all are talking an utopian way . Out of 1.2 billion Indians ,there may be 5 percent of people ( 6 crores people ) might have come out of the caste confinement by enlightenment of broader views .But where is the limit for this enlightment ?
    Amitabh poses about himself being called his caste as an Indian .Even this is narrowminded because i would call my caste as human and still better ,some call their caste as living beings which can be called as the highest philosophy and before them ME and Amitabh are narrow minded.

    We all should understand one fact ,that is , any system which looses its relevance and use will disappear on its own .The caste system lived and still living since thousands of years . On the other hand child marriages and Sati came down.

    Evils may be there in any system and must be removed .Do you think that there is no information about the numbers of each caste ? If it is so ,we are living in a fools paradise. All the caste leaders will know their numbers and all the politicians from a ward in a Village Panchayat to a constituency of MP will have the numbers of the people in each caste on their finger tips and this can not be wished away by a few torch bearers and casual noise makers .

    Let the caste numbers be scientifically enumerated and use the information for proper and well guided formulation and implementation of the social programmes like reservations and other benefits to the poor and socially exploited castes and this also enables the ruling system to root out the mal practises of some black sheep of the society who tries to get the social benefits for which they are not entitled.

    This argument of a big danger of division among the people because of the caste census is just an imagination because its survival for many thousands of years is a proof of its usefulness in the harmony of human civilisation inspite it was interspersed with sporadic incidents of caste wars and exploitations.

    People like you should be there with me in Redefining India.

    You are entrepreneurs who have innovative solutions to social problems and the potential to change patterns across society. You demonstrate unrivaled commitment to bold new ideas and prove that compassion, creativity, and collaboration. You all are tremendous forces for change.

    India Redefined envisions every Indian A Changemaker and also sees The India that responds quickly and effectively to social challenges, and where each individual has the freedom, confidence and societal support to address any social problem and drive change.But India Redefined also strives to shape an entrepreneurial, competitive citizen sector: one that allows social entrepreneurs to thrive and enables the Indian citizens to think and act as changemakers.

    Majority of India lives in villages. Lack of opportunities is forcing people to migrate to urban areas. Unless we create opportunities for people in the villages, give them a reason to remain in villages and promote entrepreneurship and agricultural at village level, redefining of India will remain an urban phenomenon. We have to look at our own villages – develop these, educate the people there, create awareness and opportunities for the people of our own villages. If we make our roots strong – we shall make the country strong.
    We are working on creating a set of activities and small projects which anyone can take back to his village and with active involvement of the villagers there, can bring about positive changes, helping redefine India.

    It will be great to have your support in India Redefined, the movement which I

    started last year and am leading with one lakh supporters.

    India Redefined is a non-political Citizen’s Empowerment movement and got an award for ,’The Best Humanitarian Initiative

    of the Year.

    India Redefined aims to help you fulfill your ISR – Individual Social Responsibility.

    Please help me in finding right student coordinators or chapter coordinator in your area.. It is voluntary

    See the media articles of Times of India or Hindustan Times, I have put on .

    I have been actively speaking at various forums, including colleges, to promote awareness and participation. If you can suggest this to any colleges who can invite me to address a gathering, then please do so and give me adequate notice.Also try to talk to me once at 9323467256

    Dear Members,
    I am very much concerned about the decreasing nos of Trees in our cities.
    We all need to raise our voice against deforestation & save our Forests.
    Trees are planted by Municipal Corporations but no one to look after if they are really alive. Big Shopping Malls are Seen across roads at every Foot steps but no Trees are seen Kilometers away.
    Atleast our existing Green patches needs to be protected by Strict Laws.

    wealth of all Wealth of all

    Eradication of poverty is One of the millennium goals of UN .poverty is the absence of purchasing power of any human being on earth. Empowering people to purchase, needs a global change in our attitude towards wealth, the minimal absence of which makes a human being poor in the eyes of others.
    Wealth is both public and private. Both can only be acquired either by
    transfer,education,employment or[business] enterprise.Due to fragmentation of society brought in by industrialization and population growth,even democratic republics are failing to discharge their vicarious responsibility of empowering people to acquire the said properties.consumerism,to a large extent has turned the private in to a domain of greed and destruction resulting in the present global economic recession where in an ordinary person, not empowered, is made to share Or pay a debt which he has not incurred.
    Technology has empowered both the private and public to achieve any thing,but the cost is unaffordable. we have food by green revolution,it cant reach the needy. we have 70% of water on earth, but we cannot provide potable water. Health care is updated and available. But only a few can afford to buy it. the millons and millions are left in unhygienic conditions. the lack of self control and social morality has lead the non- empowered and the not-so ALSO to become preys of communicable diseases.
    At the root of all this is the continental instinct of conquering all others territory by inequitable means. Growth can be vertical and virtual, it need not be horizontal and real[local].true democratization as a global concept backed by the universal declaration of human rights has lead to the concept of ALL-FOR-ALL.THIS IS WELL REFLECTED IN THE the millennium development goals like education for all ,health for all ,environment for all, but these are being forced upon all by way of
    summits[eg,copnhgen summit on global warming].many wheeler dealers are trying to sneak in their hidden agendas too. But we all know very well that this sort of continental

    Today is a real black day for our parliamentary democracy . The treasury benches including ministers are responsible for adjournment of the house with their intolerance and inability to face the most important discussion on Maoists and internal security of the country . How Shameful ! Ours is not a monarchy where only rulers` voice will be heard.

    THE INDIAN GOVT neglected in curbing naxalism in the begining as it could not understand the oppression and unequal development is strengthening the maoist movement and enemies of india helping Maoists. Now a stage has come where there are under 2000 police stations under control of Maoists and this is alarming for Indian democracy and security.

    In India,a division of well educated people were attracted towards communism happening internationally and as such the division in ideolgy of international communism reflected in Indian communism.Thus , we have CPI,CPI-M and Naxalites /Maoists CPIand CPI-M fit themselves into democratic system and want to come to power thro` ballot. But ,some who fell for Maoism of China took a path of coming to power thro`bullet.Here, CPI-M ,AFTER COMING TO POWER THRO BALLOT IN 3 STATES DID NOT TRY TO PERSUADE MAOISTS THAT COMMUNISM CAN BE ESTABLISHED IF MAOISTS AND THE LEFT JOIN TOGETHER TO COME TO POWER BY DEMOCRATIC PROCESS AND KEPT AWAY THE MAOISTS .But .now we can see that YSR, Shibusoren and Mamta used the popularity of maoists to defeat their opponents. This proves the mistake committed by left in isolating Maoists from the democratic process.

    And thus isolated , Maoism in india is encouraged by Maoists coming into power in Nepal thro`ballot after building a huge mass base being underground and indulging in armed fighting for decades.Mean while,some anti Indian forces like ISI are helping in arming them.

    The govt should immediately start development measures in a big and speedy manner from the periphery of the Naxal`s corridor where encounters with Naxals will be much less and thus loss of the lives of innocents will be minimal. With these measures ,govt could create confidence among people and then slowly reach the central point thro`same developmental measures.Along side this,involve in a dialogue with Maoists and impress them and their supporters with the sincerity in govt actions.

    The first offer of 200 days work under MGNREGA must be made and follwed by 2nd offer of building PURAS with well connectivity to interior tribalareas and finally 3rd offer must be marketing of their produce avoiding the middlemen, the biggest exploiters. The govt must sincerely implement on war footing rather than declaring war on naxalites.

    The conditions from govt must also be simple like stopping all the illegal acts like violence, extortion,growing ganja and making arms as per IPC by maoists and extending a helping hand to allow them in joining the mainstream with proper rehabilitation with a stern rider if maoists do not agree ,the green hunt will be turned into a full scale war which may result in the annihilation of innocent people.

    An appeal from India Redefined movement

    Please send this message to all the Indians you know.

    India Redefined, is asking to fulfill ISR-Individual Social Responsibility, just as CSR is for corporates.

    As a citizen of India, we ask you –

    Do you want to make India better?

    Are you fed up of table-talks with no action?

    Are you willing to do your bit for the country?

    Are you confused how to do this?

    If your answer to any of these is YES, then join

    India Redefined

    India Redefined ( is a non-political Citizen’s Empowerment movement. The movement got an award as ‘The Best Humanitarian Initiative 2009’. The movement was started to light up the fire in the hearts of very Indian citizen, to be awakened, to exercise their rights and fulfill their obligation & responsibilities. This movement is for those Indians want to change the country into something which they will be proud to hand over to their children tomorrow. Citizen rights have been provided at the cost of some duties and obligations – these could be constitutional, social, civic or societal duties, that must be and should be performed by every citizen of India. Then only we can demand our rights.

    India Redefined draws its inspiration from Gandhian Movement which was a revolution focused on independence. It was also about specific actions like non- cooperation by citizens. We are just trying to apply many Gandhiji’s principles’ in this era, in this society and during these times. Maybe in a different flavor! Maybe the context is different! Maybe it’s a different world! But the goal is same! He also wanted India a better place to live in.

    If all of us fellow Indians decide to come together on a common platform like India Redefined, for once leaving our religion, political affiliations, language, state, caste etc. at home, and with a common cause of creating India Redefined as the strongest platform to empower citizens, we really can have INDIA of our dreams. It is a social movement which is more about awareness, responsibility and ownership by all of us. Before we Indians start demanding what government can do for us, we should start thinking what we can do for our country.

    Political Parties ask for Votes from common people, India Redefined is asking for only Support, because it is citizen’s movement and not a political party. Political parties claim to work for 100 crore people, but if 100 crore people work for Redefining India – what can stop it from becoming the most powerful country. Put all your goodness on one platform – India Redefined, become the strongest citizen group & make public officials accountable by ensuring better governance, infrastructure and killing the corruption. India Redefined aims to help you fulfill your ISR – Individual Social Responsibility.

    Do you require to have any special qualification or skill for Redefining India? Well, you only require –

    Love for “INDIA”

    Passion to be the “Catalyst” of change

    Belief in your “Actions”

    Trust in others to become as “Committed”

    Action to “Change” – yourself and others around you

    India Redefined is trying to be the enablers of behavioral change in each of us! We must target the root causes – even if it is going to take longer. If each of us have a behavioral change, we could solve problems like Corruption (Clean, Transparent & Good Governance), Hygiene (Good health and Sanitation), Pollution (Clean and Green Environment), and Human Relations (harmonious Relationship with each other and different communities).

    Implementation of India Redefined is divided into six stages, and when integrated, bases itself to a holistic improvement.

    As the part of the implementation under AWAKEN INDIA, we have initiated our first project named “I CARE” which aims to get a large number of people motivated by executing simple activities SUCUSSEFULLY, which anyone is free to do. For example – Plant 10 trees and ignites 10 more people to do so. Reduce your Electric bill by 20 percent and ignite 10 more people to do. The key aspects in designing the activities are SIMPLICITY and HIGH SUCCESS RATIO.

    These small activities when participated by large number of Indians will have a vibrant ‘Dominos Effect’. Doing these activities will give the people moral confidence and a sense of achievement to participate in bigger activities. Awakening consists of:
    Awareness (which is Gaining knowledge),

    Education (or ability to Process knowledge) and

    Communication (Spreading of knowledge)

    The other projects under India Redefined umbrella are going to be “EDUCATE INDIA” and “Develop Your Own Village” which will be launched in coming months.

    Youth, studying in colleges are helping to implement “EDUCATE INDIA”. Students who are willing to be part of this movement take the oath – “I donate” 6 months of my life in training or education, for those who are underprivileged.”

    In India, education is supposed to be the great equalizer and the primary vehicle for upward mobility. But, the reality today is that all too often, where children are born determines their educational prospects. Across the country, largest number of children living in poverty have academic and, therefore, life prospects that are dramatically different than those of their peers in wealthier communities. Mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity (in terms of quality of education) by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.

    “I donate” will help in recruiting outstanding college graduates from all backgrounds and career interests to commit to teach for 6 months in urban and rural schools for underprivileged during or immediately after their student life.

    We appeal to you to join as a Volunteer and put your goodness in this basket of India Redefined

    We need more Chapter Coordinators and Student Coordinators to take on the responsibility, in different cities of India. There are 52 chapter coordinators and few student coordinators till now in different cities of India. If you want to suggest anyone’s names for Chapter Coordinator or Student Coordinators then please send a mail regarding this at

    All work is purely voluntary and no money is asked or paid – because this is your own movement and you should be doing it for yourself.

    Hi members ,

    CORRUPTION – The Religion Of India

    I remember very vividly this story of a motor vehicle inspector(Break inspector – those days) around the year 1958 .He is from one of my neighbouring villages.People around hesitate to be friendly with him and was not married for quite a time as good families were not willing their girls to be married to him; the only reason being that he was corrupt.I observed,as the years pass, the man working in the same post came out of the nearly social boycot and had become one of the most prospective friends and bride-grooms.This clearly indicates the perceptions are changing with times and people stared accepting corruption as a part of the life.
    When i was a medical student around 1965,govt doctors should not do private practice.Excepting a very few,every one adhered to that stipulation.Even those few never demaded money from the poor and needy.Even the ward boys were satisfied with chai money but were not demanding moneylike today.

    Upto 60`s,Indian political class consists of the people who took politics as a mission to serve the people.The influence of beauracrcy in administration was almost total as those political leaders were inexperienced as the independence from foreign rule had just come and also parliamentary democratic system had just arrived.Most of the beaurocrats are more educated and more experienced than most of the politicians.But the public adulation,status and policy making authority is with the politicians. Beauruacracy started taking bribes to become monetarly rich atleast.In this process,it became very essential for them to involve politicians in this corruption.Slowly a nexus is formed between these two and the result is what we all are witnessing today helplessly.Here we should remember the words written by Nehruji`s security chief, Padmavibhushan Rustomji in his book – Nehruji disliked the special previleges, treatmant and prestige that had been given to or acquired by the ICS and he did not believe that the methods were perfect. And he despised the snobbery and felt that the officers as a rule were not in tune with the masses and their aspirations.He also felt that beauracracy is loosing its sheen and most importantly its human face.

    So what should common public do on their part ? Try not to give bribes as far as possible for small inconveniences and favours.We have enough time and strength to stand in ques,keeping our papers organised.facing inconveniences.If we develop this attitude,all Tax offices RTOs,Police stations , Registrar offices etc wll be so crowded that those staff will work without bribes. Like 50s and early 60s, We should be away from the corrupted(not exactly social boycot) and by this making them understand that corruption is not socially encouraged and people do not like the corrupted.Almost 95% of the public is not in the jobs or professions where they can take bribes and abot one third of these people have to bribe to live without inconveniences.The change in the attitude of thes people is a must as a first and most important step to end this rampant corruption which now entered the private industry and business along with public administration and industry.These people must invariably bring up the next generation with moral education from the home itself against corruption and other bad things done against the society.In our childhood,we were repeatedly told by our parents,not to tell lies,not to touch others money etc recent days,parents are endorsing these qualities as SMARTNESS.The same people make big,empty noises about the corruption.What a contradiction and hipocracy ?

    Corruption in the form of cash,kind,nepotism,power and sycophancy is the sole reason for the failure of adminstration and the present state of poverty in the country. Once, emperor Shajahan is more rich than any european monarch as per history.And hence there is no reason for India to be among one of the poorest countries of the world.

      Look at this dirty and vulgar game played by political leaders and business people.

      Shashi Tharoor who is famous for his infamous tweets deserved sacking long back. If UPA does not show its muscle now in sacking him IMMEDIATELY even after the allocation of free shares to his would be wife ,Sunanda Pushkar , the people of India will not forgive UPA .

      Common people have an aversion to him from the begining as he reeks of falsehood and aping west.

      As the clock tick`s on , UPA`S INACTION OR DELAY WILL LOWER THE MORAL STANDING OF THIS GOVT and sets a very bad precedent in the already highly corrupted country .Meanwhile Tharoor`s aide on television is trying to divert and justify the situation by raising the KERALA STATE FEELINGS AND SENTIMENTS.Any support to his behaviour is not only undignified but condemnable.

    Dear Brothers and Sister,

    Jai HInd! Born in India and proud to be an Indian. Currently living in USA. Not very happy about it. Anyway, from last 3 years I have had a very diffcult life. I was not able to feel a sense of belonging. But after my India trip last dec, I am a changed man. I found that lost connection with my motherland. I never felt like this ever before. I felt I had been held in arms by mother India!! It was a feeling that i never wanted to stop. But I had to come back to USA. After coming here I felt left out and a feeling of lack of attachment. So i started thinking what can i do to make me feel like i am close to India.

    So i went and bought the Indian flag. I have it hung on the wall of my apartment. Its a 5ft by 3ft and the colors are beautiful and when it hangs and when you look at it, it gives you a sense of security. Like someone is watching you back. Like I love my motherland and I miss her too!!

    That energy I get looking at my flag is more powerful then 1000 atomic bombs! So i urge, I strongly urge each and everyone to go buy a flag and as per the flag hanging code, hang it in your house. Let everyone she is hanging in your house. This is the only thing that will get each person in India to come to gather and be as Indians. Once we have our flag flying everywhere across India, that nation will change in no time. The lack of national Integrity is the biggest problem today in India. And the only way to get everyone togather as one, is under our beautiful flag!!

    So lets spread the concept of having flag in your house. I assure you it wont be too long before everyone gets one. Lets get togather as one!

    Sameer Pawar
    Jai Hind!

    Another huge problem is the way citizens contribute to the filth on their streets, especially those not in the vicinity of their residence. For example, men freely spit and micturate in public spaces. not only is this filthy, btu ti is also extrememly embarrasing. I mean, why must we behave like animals? Convincing people not to do this is the most difficult, because the spitting germ has spread to women and children as well. In addition, at the ward level, we must begin to coordinate with and mobilise the estblishment of portable toilets, the cleanliness of these toilets and more spitoons, until the message is driven home. its a hard task . we have to recondition the minds of three generations of popultaion. another way to do it would eb to penalise them, but can the local governement afford so many watchguards? it would be good if we could put our heads together for a non-violent and practical solution.

    In Women Leaders in India’ conference, “India Redefined” the movement I started in April 2009 got award for ,’The Best Humanitarian Initiative of the Year 2009′ . I was also a speaker in this conference. My presentation was about ‘Indian Woman Philanthropy’ and “India Redefined” (

    India Redefined is not a political movement but we are open to work with all political parties, NGOs, Corporates. Basic idea is to ignite Indians to be awared of their Responsibilities (and Rights). And perform some actions which I have already planned. I am trying to form different chapters of India Redefined, in different cities with Chapter Coordinators. If you want to suggest your name or anyone elses names for Chapter coordinatHior, then please send me a mail regarding that. Have made a PPT of” I Care” project . Chapter coordinators are supposed to find 20 committed people in each city to form the team and anyone who is the Chapter Coordinator, has to target a large number of people (more youngsters, but anyone) to perform those 8 activities in next 6-12 months. I am not claiming myself to be “know-all” person. We all will learn from mistakes. Any suggessions are most welcome.Many people have already suggested their names for Chapter coordinators and sent their profile. All these are voluntary works. Chapter coordinators will be those people who have the drive to be public figures by setting an example to general public by their selflessness and commitment. That is the only way to make everyone participate.

    I would like to share with you my presentation and transcript of my speech given at this conference. In this I talk about Philanthropy and my life, and what made me start this initiative. I have also mentioned our future plans. My award acceptance speech also I will like to share with every Indian. Once I get your email that you want me to send these to you, then only I will send. You can forward them to those who are interested in taking India Redefined forward. I will really appreciate if you go through these and give me your feedback and thoughts about “India Redefined”. I will be glad to explain you any points in detail and seek your involvement in the movement. I have also spoken briefly about ‘I Care” project in the presentation. Kindly give your inputs on this. Within a week, I will send you a presentation of “I Care” project, so that it will be easier for you to understand how we are going forward. Attached are the photographs of both the awards I got this year.
    “India Redefined” cannot be a success without active participation by all of us and I urge you to be a part of this movement and help me in taking this movement forward. Support in terms of participation and time, funds (particularly corporate & institutional funding) and even just making others aware about it is most welcome. People with access to media and news channels can contribute by spreading the word through these mediums to reach more and more people.

    I am based in the Netherlands and have been multiple time to India. What I would see as basic changes that must become reality :

    1. Clean the streets of garbage > setup government led companies to pick up garbage and help 1000nds of “low cast people” to get a job.
    1b People proud of their city and country keep it clean and do not only expect it from the government
    2. Invest in people and foremost children > education as well in rural areas
    3. Pay the police and government employees more salary to de-stimulate the corruption

    etc 🙂
    NB: I do think that India has a lot to thank the UK for the years they were there. and I am not speaking about the negative issues. But such as the train track and other structures

    Hi Members !

    It is a very grand wish of our PM to revolutionise our higher educational system. We can not have premium institutes like IIT`s, `IIM`s, Medical institutes, NIT`s and at the affordable fees structure in private educational institutes.So,is govt capable of doubling student intake of SUCH INSTITUTES in a year or a decade ? If govt wills also, does our country can afford?

    We have to think as per capabilties and come to a way to achieve this in a year ( please do not laugh) by introducing double shift in all the existing govt premier educational institutes. The 1st problem is to adjust the body clocks of the students .The second problem would be the availability of the faculty.

    First problem can be addressed because the students can bear a little difficulty to study in such institutes.

    Second problem also can be solved, more difficult, by providing enough financial compensation, good living conditions, good education upto class 12 for their chidren in the same campus, respect and freedom from govt and its beaurocracy. This will cost money and chage of mindset of the govt. But,money that is going to cost will not be much less than the cost of capital expenditure saved by utilising the existing infrastructure twice than present.Only hurdle now is the mindset of the govt.If our PM wishes,that is also easily solved.

    PM wants brain gain instead of brain drain. If the faculty is treated as mentioned above, this will be possible with our PM adressing and inviting them to improve the higher education in India as their responsibility.

    I am from medical fraternity. I know much more about the psyche of doctors than the health minister unless he had offered incentives with the consultation of various strata of medical fraternity. Along with incentives , some conditions are to be set .
    1. The remuneration of 25000 Rs is much ,much less when compared with the cost of education and very high intelligence required to get admitted into medical colleges.
    2. Good accommodation attached to the rural health centre.
    3. Enough supporting staff.
    4. A vehicle for the use of doctor and for medical emergencies.
    5.Enough stocks of medicines and equipments.
    6.The other incentives offered by minister are in addition to the above.
    7.Medical education by seats in govt colleges and govt quota of seats in private medical colleges is much ,much cheaper than private medical college and this is by tax payers money. And so, govt should attach a precondition of serving three years in rural medical service for all the medical students who have got their medical education at govt`s cost. This condition will discourage the students who can afford private medical education to join govt colleges and a few more seats would be available for more needy and socially responsible students.
    8.Not accepting the rural postings and continuous absenteeism should be seriously dealt with.
    9.No political interference in the postings. The doctors should serve the rural areas specified and confined to the area where they did their medical education as this lessens the personal preferences and political pressures in the postings.

    How to increase the number of doctors, nursing and paramedical staff who will get their particular education from govt with a condition of serving in the rural areas ?

    Apart from existing govt medical colleges, a new and a smaller medical college is to be set up attached to the upgraded district headquarters hospital through out India without exception of any district and paramedical training is also to be attached to the same facility. There need not be any private participation in this scheme of things because land and hospital establishment is already existing.
    All our existing govt medical colleges can increase its intake by at least 20% in under and post graduate courses as patients turnover is definitely sufficient for the increased seats.

    The next biggest problem is the availability of the faculty. The govt should accord the best teaching allowance and perks for the teaching doctors in addition to the normal salaries of doctors who are involved only in patient care.

    Then comes the most important incentive – Education facilities for the children of the doctors involved ;This can be achieved by reserving seats in the neighbour hood School scheme of Right to education act.

    We are very much worried about the developments in ANDHRA PRADESH,as this may pave and define a way to get the seperate statehoods for which already demands are there whether those demands merit seperate statehoods or not.So,i wrote to The President of India to intervene immediately and save our democracy from the blackmailing movements.

    Your Request/Grievance Registration Number is : PRSEC/E/2009/12844
    Our democracy to survive and India not getting Balkanised, the present govt should come forward with a long term vision. This is the most opportune time to act on their vision as it has enough time before next general elections.

    The Telangana issue had been forced to reach the climax by inept understanding and thus handling the political climate after the sad and sudden demise of YSR, a strong leader who could keep this issue under wraps excepting a few and weak demands for seperate Telangana.Here Congress made a political blunder in totally ignoring and sidelinig Y.Jagan who was carrying all the followers of YSR along with him.Congress high command,on the other hand, thought the time had come to take over the total control of running the AP congress and put it into action which alieniated the local congress leaders and cadre enmass.This disenchantment was waiting for a situation to erupt as a revolt and this can be noticed in the burning of the effigies of their supreme leader by congress cadres supported by their leaders both in in Telangana and Andhra regions.

    There are demands for various other smaller staes supported mainly by regional outfits and the new entrant is Paswan gunning for Poorvanchal.

    What happens if the govt does not act imediately with a vision mentioned above ? Congress will cease to exist as a national party and stability and sovereignity of the country is slowly compromised.So,govt must act at once giving top priority by a way of forming 2nd SRC and concede some states depending on the genuinity of the necessity.

    Coming to Telangana issue, the most prudent way is to keep the assembly in suspended animation,imposing President`s rule,assuring the warring factions of AP, 2nd SRC will decide the issue speedily and forming the 2nd SRC is only due to the raise of demands of seperate states taking the example of AP“s violent movement causing enormous damage to the lives,properties and mainly development.

    Time has come to keep the political considerations and interests aside for some time and bring the country into a saner and peaceful atmosphere.After all this govt should act firm in controlling the law and order situation with a firm hand and will and not get cornered as it was today.

    Rathore is aptly named as Rat`whore by Manoharan kumar. In Indian judicial system ,what else public can do but appeal.If ,NCW OR NGOs or any public litigation goes to court once again, what will happen ? That crook will get another 19 yrs of respite.

    The only punishment that put him into some shame and also deterrs others not comitting the same crimes is social boycotting these cruel sadists.All women should start a movement to social boycotting and public insulting of this sadist in front of his house so that his family starts hating him and be ashamed of him.This movement should be led by all women activist leaders who just are doing nothing but appearing to do lip service on TVs.

    The so called great women leaders,UPA CHAIRWOMAN, PRESIDENT OF iNDIA, LOKSABHA SPEAKER,NCW CHAIRMAN have to come forward and do some thing which deterrs Rat`whores. But,unfortunately these great women do nothing by asserting – Law will takes its own course – the usual political dialogue.

    The only recourse left is youth of women take up the issue and see that rapist can not live peacefully in the society rather than fighting in the court .

    Then only Ruchika`s soul will rest in peace.

    “One of the things we are most proud of in India is our democracy. Our democracy holds and has continued to be stable, is because it is representative not just of its people but of India’s pluralist, diverse and rich cultural heritage. This is something that the Congress Party has always stood by and our commitment to the nation and to its people is constantly demonstrated through our policies at the Centre and in the States.”

    ” I am deeply committed to the cause of education and would like to see every person, man and woman, boy and girl, be touched by the light of modern education. Empowerment of women is particularly important to me as I believe this leads to the empowerment of the nation”Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil, President of India

    — today,25/11/09The education dept.of andhra pradesh released a study document by ap state educational research institute on 24th.It had collected the opinions in 559 schools & headmasters, 1820 teachers, 5324 sthdents and 1515 parents.This study is conducted from 15th to 24th of october.

    This study revealed the following opinions;
    1 – 90 percent of the students wanted English medium of instruction. 76.12 percent preffered state board to CBSE.
    2 – 72 % of the teachers are for English medium and 75 % preffer state board o CBSE.
    3 – 86-6 % head masters prefer english medium and state board.
    4 – 90 % parents are for English medium and 83.19 % preffer state board.
    The study document, basing on these opinions, indicated that English medium of instruction to be started from the 1st seandard itself,improvement in the teachers/students ratio and finally betterment of the facilities and infrastructure.

    This study reveals the lopsided govt education and how the poor is cheated of contemporary needs of education.

    This is the reason,i have come up with the following idea.

    But,govt did not cosider the common children`s desire to do their education in english medium which is the previlege of rich.the students educated in english medium are having a big edge over in jobs and status.Eduaction can be divided into two parts;1.cultural take care of cultural part – mother tongue,social studies,morals,arts should be taught in mother tongue. to take care of career part – english (written and spoken),maths and sciences should be taught in english.So,each student gets both the parts of education simultaneously. If govt can do this from next year onwards- poor students will have equal opportunity in education without burdening their parents and imagine the amount of human talent of world class but rooted to their culture.

    Dear all members
    We at Krishi Jagran and Centre for Agriculture and Rural Promotion are making efforts for green and prosperous rural india.I would like to share my views on Genetically Modified Crops which is being opposed by some so called environmentalists for their wasted interest.
    In India green revolution came due to the efforts of our scientists by coming up with High Yielding Varieties in Wheat and Rice.For the last 29 years the countries research adopted hybrid seeds which helped farmers to get better yields as well as nutritionally good products in Cereals,vegetales.These two conventional methods of breeding has saturated to their highest and take long time to develop a good hybrid for any crops.To feed the nations burgeoning population we require time saving technology to develop high yielding and cost reducing seeds to the farmers.The biotechnology plays a great role to solve the problem.
    The global area under GM crops since 1996 had risen to 124 million hectares in 25 countries, comprising of 15 developing and 10 industrial countries by 2008.

    Biotech crops contributed increasing production by 141 MT in 12 years (1996-2007.). Biotech crops help to conserve biodiversity by saving land. If not for these crops, the additional 43million hectares of land would have been required to create the production gain of 141 MT.
    In India, the Bt-cotton area was about 29,000 ha in 2002. and had expanded in 2008 to 7.6 m ha in nine cotton growing states, representing about 82 per cent of the total cotton area, average yield increasing from 308 kg/ha in 2001-02 to 560 kg/ha in 2007-08, turning India from an importer to a net exporter.

    Crop biotechnology research in India

    Recognizing the importance and potential of biotechnology, the Government of India set up the National Biotechnology Board in 1982 which became a full-fledged department (called as Department of Biotechnology, DBT) in 1986 under the Ministry of Science and Technology.

    To provide research and human resource development in crop biotechnology,
    DBT supported the establishment of Centres for Plant Molecular Biology (CPMB) in 1990. A total of seven such centres were set up at JNU, New Delhi, Madurai Kamaraj University, TNAU, Coimbatore, Osmania University, Hyderabad, NBRI, Lucknow, and Bose Institute, Kolkata and University of Delhi South Campus. A total financial outlay of Rs 45.98 crores was made available for the development
    and research activities of CPMBs.

    National Centre for Plant Genome Research (NCPGR) has established in
    New Delhi with a mandate to strengthen plant biotechnology research in India.

    Crops adopted for Transgenic Research in India

    Cotton, Rice, Maize, Mustard, Tobacco, Tomato, Brinjal, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Muskmelon and many more

    The Main Issues
    The importance of biotech crops can be felt after meeting the growers of Bt cotton. They are happy to get rid of Helicoverpa for which they were practising large number of sprays with a long list of pesticides. The second GM crop Bt Brinjal has approved by GEAC but with hold of commercialization by Govt. of India.
    The biotechnology in agriculture has an important role in many crops viz, Maize. Soybean, Rice, Wheat, Mustard and Vegetables to upgrade these crops qualitatively and quantitatively.
    The frequently asked questions by the farmers are related to the future of GM crops in India. A large amount of money and manpower is involved to carry out the research in public and private sector. Does Indian govt. want to go ahead with technology involved to breed the seed of GM crops which helps the farmers to lower the production cost and increase in yields.
    Why the need of clear policy
    The scientific community both in public and private sector is committed to provide best research for the benefit of farmers and consumer. Agriculture has huge impact of climate change. The changes happen quickly but research take long time to reduce these impacts. Biotechnologies offer better tools to reduce the impact of these changes. India needs sustainable food production to feed the growing populations. The cultivated land is reducing. The only alternative is to put the research on fast pace with biotechnological tools. The abiotic and biotic factors are dealt thru genetic improvements by inserting required genes which are evaluated to be safe. Before committing huge investments in these researches, a clear policy is required. Time lines are very important in developing these products otherwise the cost of regulatory and other issues will go up and make the product expensive to the farmers. If policy is very clear and implemented without pressure than many companies will invest in agriculture to make it more sustainable and India’s food requirements in next ten years will be achievable.

    The Key Questions on GM Technology
    1. Should India go for GM technology or not?
    2.Will we able to feed our burgeoning population to get HYV only by conventional and slow breeding technology?
    3. Should GM technology be banned and use of more and more toxic pesticides be continued and hence increase in the production cost and thereby making the poor farmer the poorest?
    4. Can the conventional method of breeding cope up with global warming and climate changes at faster rate?
    5. Is the GM Technology a need to feed the hungers or our greed to go with it?
    6. If we have become the 2nd largest producer and thereby first time exporter of cotton by growing Bt cotton from an importer then why this established technology is not being green signaled in case of other crops?
    7.We have been importing a large amount of soy oil mostly extracted from GM soybean and also using Bt cottonseed oil. If these are non toxic to human beings then why there is a hue and cry for other crops?
    8. If our regulatory system was not adequate enough to test the GM crops impacts, then why we have gone for the release of Bt cotton? Is the apex body GEAC less knowledgeable than the protest groups, Govt. has to answer?

    These are some facts to share from my part if anyone has different opinion ,Please comment.

    whats happpening with the andhra pradesh.the whole andhra pradesh is getting worse with the telangana movement. telangana people are very selfish. andhra people treated them like their brothers but in return telangana are seeking a different telangana regions making a pakistan and india act. it looks like people are fighting like a war between pakistan and india.

    if this is the case then we have to see india getting more worse and the whole govt is going to come down.people should mould according to the situation, understand and act not simply by making strikes.

    regarding inhuman behaniour towards women

    i am worried about the safety of women in our country.
    everyday we read in newspaper that a girl has been raped or molested. few days back DPS school girl has been kidnapped from over-crowded market place when she was coming back from school. afterwards she was taken to a secluded place by four yougsters( son’s of politician) and raped. i m very traumatised by such incidences which keep on happening daily.
    so want to do something.

    i have support of few friends. i want your support and guidance so that we can remove such crimes from the society.
    give me suggestions so that together we can bring a change to the lives of women.

    Hie frnds,
    i would like to bring you in notice,

    What many a times i have seen is corruptions,
    here am talking just about police,a traffic police you may say

    suppose you have a car,and you are going out for a drive and you have forgot your license at home,
    now a traffic police catch you,
    suppose the fine is 600rs,
    now rather of paying the fine of rs 600 ,just to save money you argue with the police and rather of 600rs u pay ….say 150-200.
    now the fine which was about to go to government of rs 600 is going 0rs and for no reason you are giving bribe to the police.
    which is directly going in his pocket.

    Now who is the responsible person for doing this .
    YOU or the POLICEMEN.

    so i would appriciate if you could just give your views about this.
    what are the possible ways to stop this.

    Dear Member,

    We all are victims of various unscrupulous practices across various facets of services provided by the Govt. Why not make all dealings transparent? Why not ve 1 common portal for complaints with all details….department wise, officer wise etc.. this will atleast help netizens upload their grievances and the same can be used to file PILs (Public Litigations) against corrupt officials. Secondly, people visting the same department can do a brief research on the type of practices followed by the corrupt ones…so that they are more informed and will comply with all documents / info required..

    Lastly, we can have honary channel partners for people who dont have net access. People can go to any nearest recognised channel partner’s office and file his complaint.

    Though it seems a bit difficult..but i strongly feel it is doable and will evolve as the thought leader for curbing bribery across domains.

    Please do provide feedback on my thoughts

    Hi members,
    The scorching heat of mumbai reminds me the problem of global warming faced by the society today. so why not do something for it in our little way. i want to organize a tree plantation program here in new bombay. please come forward and suggest ideas so that together we can give shape to it…

    As per my knowledge youths of India are already Ignited the only thing required is to bend their power to the right direction.
    And for this I think this movement will helps a lot as a platform.

    I appeal all Indians to lead them self once again similar as they get ignited to uproot the British rule…… to Redefine India… construct Great India.

    Thanks & Jai Hind.
