LET’S CLEAN INDIA SHOULDER TO SHOULDER!

A VISCERAL DRIVE FOR CLEANLINESS!

Good Morning to all of you!

Thank you all; I’ve had my regular workout this morning with a glorious view of the night sky with many zestfully-roaming silvery cloudlets against a cyan-cerulean backdrop!

Swacch Bharat is not a move that much of our country takes to by instinct for all along we have lived like the proverbial Chinese monkeys–blind deaf and dumb to this great menace to our own physical health.

The typical Mumbaikar goes on cheerfully and without a care in the world with his apparently unabashed metrosexual life style while carefully avoiding –but not taking a step to removing- the huge garbage mounds on either side of his own access road! He has nothing to rage against  despite the gang warts in his neighborhood, vast sprawling slums like  Dharavi taking birth adjacent to his own congested apartment purchased through some local “housing society”…

LET’S CLEAN INDIA SHOULDER TO SHOULDER!

A VISCERAL DRIVE FOR CLEANLINESS!

Good Morning to all of you!

Thank you all; I’ve had my regular workout this morning with a glorious view of the night sky with many zestfully-roaming silvery cloudlets against a cyan-cerulean backdrop!

Swacch Bharat is not a move that much of our country takes to by instinct for all along we have lived like the proverbial Chinese monkeys–blind deaf and dumb to this great menace to our own physical health.

The typical Mumbaikar goes on cheerfully and without a care in the world with his apparently unabashed metrosexual life style while carefully avoiding –but not taking a step to removing- the huge garbage mounds on either side of his own access road! He has nothing to rage against  despite the gang warts in his neighborhood, vast sprawling slums like  Dharavi taking birth adjacent to his own congested apartment purchased through some local “housing society” and of course no suggestion at all to make for making that metro safe and terrorist proof!

The national capital has thousands of men and women, not willing by far to spare a single thought on why its air coolers are playing host to disease causing mosquitoes or why it’s called the Rape-cum-Molestation Capital of the country. Atmospheric pollution, one of the worst globally, doesn’t cause him to knit his brows. Countless shenanigans by people representatives from every corner of the country –plus the verbal fusillades being staged by various sputnik political stooges  in the Parliament halls–doesn’t jostle his heart in any way in his physically cozy life.

Kolkata is shamelessly dirty on its roads, partly owing to an influx of migrants from the neighboring Bangladesh, and almost all road junctions are terribly smelly too.

The city of Joy feels all proud of its chosen life style of living the day up every single day of the year with the help of hilsa feasts with a pugnacious and belligerent CM that specializes in gnashing her teeth almost all the time over trifles. Men carry their huge well-oiled potbellies with scarcely sheepish looks and sleeveless women go on with their relentless impulsiveness and oniomania! What I have observed there is the incidence of ascites caused by their rampant use of cheap mustard oil but no one cares!

Life and death—and unprincipled political chess games– goes on without a break by the banks of the River Hooghly, a tributary of the River Ganges!

Chennai is far better of course, unless it’s for the heavy musty air of political honesty and dishonesty being played there. Bribing the voters in anticipation of elections with both cash and kind is persistent and intrigues of every kind happens behind doors.

The countless Hindu deities, under lock and key at small temples on roadsides, play mute helpless witnesses to many ongoing financial irregularities too with many humans pretending to be pious only to be dishonest in the extreme!

The honorably-intentioned PM, dear ones, launched this National Cleanliness move with the noblest intentions; we—YOU and I included! — owe it to our own honorable and hypocritical selves to fulfill his dream for seeing a nation that is clean –both internally and externally!

Modern India—with its States preferring to remain as much addicted to the dead past as they can!– can no longer dream of being the Ancient India by far; she is already gone too far in the direction of resurgence and renaissance!

She, as a powerful upcoming nation in South Asia, MUST be clean not only in her daily life but mentally too. She has no alternative to it! And your and my working shoulder to shoulder with our countrymen is the ONLY way to get this dream materialized!

Have a great Day!

AN INDIAN EPIDEMIC–FRAUD!

Kuttanlifeissues

FRAUDULENCE—AN INDIAN EPIDEMIC!

Warming Up:

FRAUD in capital letters is a humongous threat to all Indians. All of us know this reality but few among us are really doing anything about exorcising it, probably because to us, this basic habitual dishonesty is part and parcel of our very make up!

At least 10% of Indians–and 20% among Indian organizations– have turned obviously and shamelessly fraudulent in my ball park calculation, and most of these live in towns or cities too.

The former have probably played foul by their own biological siblings to get a lion’s share of the parental /.ancestral landed property and managed to sell the same at a high price too before scooting to the nearest city. The latter have been conceived to cheat the commoners as long as they can before being exposed and thus it’s a merry go round that is going on all around us…

The latter have been conceived to cheat the commoners as long as they can before being exposed and thus it’s a merry go round that is going on all around us in many avatars!

Call it by any label as you may like–Competition for Survival or Mental Confusion or Zero Family Value Syndrome- but the reality remains!

You and I may get deceived anytime by any organization through their salesmen or coached sales staff. And once you have remitted a huge amount, the same racket closes its eyes to you! Chit funds are the worst culprits in this category but other NBFCs and RNBCs also vie with them in pickpocketing the lay Indian!

Scams get reported in media and then they get carefully quietly hushed up too thru bribes!

Thousands of Indians get unsuspectingly taken for a ride by financial bodies and RBI has stepped into protect the customers from the organizations that tried to swindle them left and right.

Such organizations include banks too no less or the sister organizations that they run for fattening their profits!

FRAUD IN HIGH PLACES!

Chacha Nehru, the visionary dreamer PM, had quite positive intentions in the first few months after he took up this thankless job in what was then the 105st poorest country on Earth, but the DEVIL sneaked into his soul when he thought of leaving behind him a family dynasty of PM figures through his successors.
To the best of my knowledge and research, a chamcha ‘quid pro quo’ mindset prevailed in the Indian National Congress all along with spaniel behavior in the presence of the Nehru family scions—and this was obvious even before Nehru breathed his last, though he let it remain.

This mutual back-scratching bias played havoc with the choice of ministerial figures in the early ministries at the Centre with immense and incalculable negative consequences for the whole nation though you and I were not born at that time in Free India’s political infancy!

Not only most ineligible persons close to the Nehru family were extended ministerial chairs on whim and fancy but also a whole fraudulent nation debilitating paradigm got nurtured within the corridors of power in this country through the 1970’s till 2000!

Ministers were picked for their caste, their skin tint, their backwardness and so on; then they were hurriedly got passed in election farces and admitted into the Cabinet! Politically dynastic families, toeing the Nehru family beliefs, came up by the dozen in all States of the country without ever the members of the public coming to get an inkling about this ruinous tendency!

Literacy levels were way down and so no one came to know through the media publications too about this malaise!

Plans and Policies, if not projects too galore,  designed with silly intentions –like sedulously aping the USSR, our flattering friend in those days-were launched and implemented incompetently. Invariably they were named with some Nehru family members name attached for country wide acceptance and also probably for glamour’s sake.

The huge fraud machinery put into motion by the ruling party members –e.g. Permit and License Raj–weakened the whole nation, smothered the patriotic instinct of early Freedom fighters and impoverished their families, enriched and fattened the coffers of practically unknown party animals, drained the national exchequer by many millions annually for many decades on end and elevated the Nehru family’s insuperable status beyond all levels!

Our forefathers didn’t object to any of these essentially fraudulent paradigms and practices because they never came to know of this crime against our own people.

All along the Congress ministries consolidated their party power across the States at the expense of the wellbeing of the countrymen and got deeply entrenched and dug in! I have my deep suspicions about how much they really loved this land, this long-suffering long-colonized nation and its hapless demoralized people!

To this extent, they were also frauds of the first water! They helped make the Indian political scenario a highly corrupted smelly tournament ground!

It was at about that time that far away in Sri Ganga Nagar of Rajasthan, an organization known as RSS came up in a quiet way to resist and if possible eliminate the nefarious habit of kidnapping and murdering of Hindu women in that township by armed henchmen from our hostile neighbor nation.

Their axiom—in diametric opposition to what the Congressmen lived by– was to live and die for India!

HYPOCRITICAL BANK MANAGERS!

No Bank Manager worth his salt shall tell you how to generate enough wealth to buy a home for your own self. He won’t, in your presence, even whisper the term SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) which is the accepted route towards this plateau level in self-sufficiency. I wager my life upon this point!

Instead ,after their work hours they can be discovered to be making their way towards some stock trading firm since they have chosen to serve themselves alone primarily in that area!

Very few of my bank manager friends have even told their children about this Investment Route, probably thanks to an occupational hazard of keeping to themselves a selfish secret!

Such bank managers could easily go up, numerically, to 90% too.

Which proves that they are not really customer-friendly at all, despite their switched on smiles!

Once the customer gets a whiff from some corner that something fishy is going on, he can report the matter to the RBI forthwith in writing.

Electronic banking transactions can be a huge trap too.

The system works to the disadvantage of the customer in many cases, apart from mistaken burglaries caused by silly typing by the forwarding bank! Monthly deductions can be either desired or undesired but the organizations pretend NOT to have seen any Termination requests from the customers and go on transferring funds even by midnight “electronically” online!

Recently I submitted a request for termination of Policy to a bank’s insurance wing.

.They wouldn’t hear of it because they knew they sold me rotten fish and immorally enough wished to keep me on the hook!

So I had to do something bold in this connection just to stymie its efforts –and thus to prevent the crooked private bank from stealing my hard earned money! {Thank you dear RBI for stepping into this most treacherously slippery ice rink!}

INSURANCE FIRMS THAT NEVER REALLY ENSURE!!

In India many so called Life Insurance Companies –including the LIC let me say- seek to insure–as different from ensure–a person’s life in a unique manner–by collecting premiums for a number of years from them and leaving them to their fate!

Naturally, after the Indians came to know their secret–their intention is to generate 5 times profit for themselves using YOUR premium amount–all insurance companies in this country anyway are in a bind.

The maximum number of complaints from customers–viz. policy holders– are against these insurance companies for the zero quality service they render!

STILL these firms hope to make suckers out of weak minded souls and pickpocket their hard earned money from them by hook or by crook!

THE GREATEST SCAM OF ALL TIME–THE MOTHER OF ALL SCAMS– IS HERE–IN INSURANCE WHICH PROFITS BY NEVER INSURING ANYTHING OR ANYONE!!

DOWRY-LINKED FRAUDS!

Fraud begins even before her birth for girls in India!

The girl kid in India, our motherland, is always put at a disadvantage by the majority of social conventions and even their menfolk in life.  Once they manage to get born, after futile attempts to kill them off in the fetal stage or even as an embryo in utero, they are, if not killed by their own parents as infants with fresh paddy stuffed into their throats or buried live in the soil, purposely underfed, tolerated for being what they are and then repeatedly told by parents that they are disposable commodities intended for use by someone else called a “husband”!

Their educational and human rights are denied to them in many cases across the caste hierarchy! They are kept under pressure of every description for toeing the parental occupation too for no earthly reason at all!

Thus Indian parents tend to be frauds to some extent without being aware of the same!

Once it’s time for them to get married, the parents go out foraging for a male human preferably of the same clan/community and caste and give the girls away for good or bad. The family astrologer plays second fiddle to the family of the girl kid for bringing about the match between same caste persons too.

He is also having fraudulent intentions in his pronouncements!

The male human picked to be her husband and owner/proprietor is also a fraudulent character because he doesn’t really have any love for the woman as such but for whatever she comes delivered with,  in the matrimonial package—cash, ornaments, assets movable and , her academic qualifications, and employability quotient.

He has his 7 year itch and one-night stands with lay women he meets or works with but he won’t extend the same liberty to his wife under any circumstances too! His wife remains a doll in his home and a kind of sex slave for him! The Indian male is not generally inclined to acknowledge that his wife is equal to him in every way and that she is having the right to purpose higher education just as he does.

This means that the Indian husband is also fraudulent to that extent without ever admitting to this!

THALAIKOOTHAL—the Tamil practice of murdering own parents on the sly – is also an instance of social and community fraud!

IN-LAW FRAUDS!

All incoming girls and boys into any family in this country risk being viewed for the first few months at least, if not for most of life, by in-laws only as an alien to be endured out of bare necessity!

I have keenly observed typical in-law behavior in this are; it’s the gross non-alignment between what they say in the open in the presence of the SIL or DIL and what they whisper among themselves when alone that frightens you or me. I have often overheard such chit chats too quite by accident and I can assure you that unless your in-laws have really gotten to your heart through genuine affection and warm appreciation for years, it’s safe for any Indian girl or boy to keep a safe distance from them!

SPIRITUALITY BUSINESS!

Across India spirituality or spiritualism is more a money-minting racket that is totally tax-free than having anything to do with the human soul! Once you are willing to put on some garb and behave oddly in front of the public, you are already in roaring business. The single eligibility criterion is that you must have some familiarity with some unheard of Himalayan hamlet and the name of some human monk there for the sake of media interview purposes!!

Most Indians love to chase the Nirvana, especially during their golden retired years, and sit gawking for hours on end in front of some male/female “saint” at some “ashram” and chant abracadabra! Often they can be seen dancing to some tunes or chanting strange utterances, wearing by the chosen Swami’s counsel and dressing themselves like Pied Piper re-born! They go at times into silent meditation sessions for weeks at a time and hike up to some Himalayan peak in search of Blissful Emancipation, apparently, from the infinite cycle of birth and death!

Given that your faith is utterly and unquestionably personal and individual, it doesn’t make any sense to say that you are some hermit or monk’s disciple, so long as he claims to be the sole custodian of Nirvana!

I have but touched on a humongous can of worms, all slithering, all smelly and all nauseating –and fast spilling out to reach the corners of the world!!

GEAR SHIFTING TO ANOTHER FAITH ?

Kuttanlifeissues

THE PSYCHOLOGY BEHIND FAITH SWITCH  is what is more worth the candle–viz. a serious investigation– than merely finding fault with conversions, forced conversions, etc.

Modern India is making a fuss –and needless media fluff–about conversion attempts in many pockets–especially in NE– and by institutions but then she is yet to think about WHAT makes a man or a woman choose an alien faith in preference to his or her own !

Both churches and mosques are blamed day and night for poaching Hindu kids over to themselves as if through black magic.

Nuns and are either murdered or humiliated.

Churches get vandalized. Mosques and masjids get demolished by force!

Lynching is also common on some evangelists from abroad.

For getting a comparison , just have a look at what is happening today in the matrimonial scenario: a boy of community A(minority) chooses a girl from community B(major) or a boy…

For getting a comparison , just have a look at what is happening today in the matrimonial scenario: a boy of community A(minority) chooses a girl from community B(major) or a boy from faith community A boldly picking a girl from faith community B , regardless of the consequences.

What triggers such choices?

Awareness of own community’s behavioral norms, inbuilt imperfections, angularities, design faults, or lack of comprehensibility?

Glamour of the other faith or community’s lifestyle, food preferences, family habits?

Individual temptation?

External coaxing and cajoling and bribes?

Threats?

Isn’t this really worth thinking about in an agonizing reappraisal of our own communities and faiths as they happen to be today?
