A PEPPY SUNDAY TO ALL OF YOU!

I have a busy day ahead of me and therefore I took an early 4 am bath, got fully dressed up and am here!

My first obligation to relive my lost Thirties with a visit to the Karamana High School grounds where the Santos club members –all school boys incidentally– come to play that most exciting game on weekend days.

Quite often I give them tips on how to send the ball in quite unexpected directions to distract the opponents before guiding it to the goal post with expert kicks. Or about how they must be self-disciplined but mostly I watch them and analyze the game.

Miles to go before I sleep,

I have a busy day ahead of me and therefore I took an early 4 am bath, got fully dressed up and am here!

My first obligation to relive my lost Thirties with a visit to the Karamana High School grounds where the Santos club members –all school boys incidentally– come to play that most exciting game on weekend days.

Quite often I give them tips on how to send the ball in quite unexpected directions to distract the opponents before guiding it to the goal post with expert kicks. Or about how they must be self-disciplined but mostly I watch them and analyze the game.

(In my Thirties,after I secured my ELT M.Litt Degree on English Remediation Program Design and Administration from the EFLU  in Hyderabad, I left India for that most mountainous nation Ethiopia where I used to play football in the evenings for a change. Of course I used to have minor injuries and bruises too in that connection but that is part and parcel of this most manly game! Unlike cricket, despite FIFA, this is not a gentlemen’s game but rather a Jallikattu bull’s aggressive game, and one that compels us to spend almost a day’s energy reserves within 2 or 3 hours!)

On my return trip I need to give a boost of confidence to my 89 year old relative here, who has been brave enough to fend off her youngest son’s ill-intentioned move to keep her a virtual incommunicado prisoner within his total control in his home. She felt that her life wouldn’t be worth living in that man’s most horrible mockery of a home!

Some years ago another of my neighbors-a lawyer- brought his mom here from Ernakulam after he had lost his dad, and then housed her in his disused kennel for many months under lock and key—merely to prevent her from ‘willing’ away her share of the landed property his late dad had! Even today the guy is alive –none speak to him –but his own home is in a Chernobyl condition!

Newton’s Third Law of Motion is always relevant in life too!

I must blog a bit about that most vivacious ministerial figure of all-Ms. Smriti Irani- who has infused a lot of energy into our nation’s textile sector.

Earlier she was in the Human Resources Ministry and she had rendered sterling services in not only meeting her official duties to perfection but also in issuing directions to ensure that our college and university campuses were free from undesirable discussions, anti-national debates, formation of terrorist student groups etc.

Our omnipresent Opposition-led ‘barking dogs’ had seemingly engineered much media disagreement and student unrest against her so called draconian measures to clean up our campuses of malcontents.

Her energy and enthusiasm tsunami is continuing in full Niagara flow ever after she got shifted to the Textile Ministry.

ET—The Economic Times you silly!– reports that she this sector has got a new lease of life today with major trade volume, expansion in production and still more experimentation with new years and fibers going on.

And finally I need to visit a couple of ongoing painting exhibitions in the city too—viz. The Aqua Show at East Fort and another in some hall in the city!!

A GREAT DAY TO YOU TOO!

RUBICON-CROSSERS AND GATE-CRASHERS!

MR. MODI, THE RUBICON CROSSER!

But not a gatecrasher!!

Whatever angle you may choose to view it from, Mr. Modi’s recent visit to Israel the Promised Land of the Jews needs to be labelled under EPIC, what with its protocol shattering welcomes, and effusive wall to wall accompaniment of music and melody; it’s as if both Israel and India underwent a national catharsis of sorts simultaneously through this experience!

What I have consistently observed in this of ne of a kind Indian PM is that he is damn good at engineering much acceleration in bilateral relations wherever he chooses to visit. In other words it would be but born April Fools who shall carp at him for spending the nation’s money for his visits abroad. Not only our nation’s forex reserves have shot up to USD 385 billion today as a consequence of his visits but also he has brought…

Whatever angle you may choose to view it from, Mr. Modi’s recent visit to Israel the Promised Land of the Jews needs to be labelled under EPIC, what with its protocol shattering welcomes, and effusive wall to wall accompaniment of music and melody; it’s as if both Israel and India underwent a national catharsis of sorts simultaneously through this experience!

What I have consistently observed in this of ne of a kind Indian PM is that he is damn good at engineering much acceleration in bilateral relations wherever he chooses to visit. In other words it would be but born April Fools who shall carp at him for spending the nation’s money for his visits abroad. Not only our nation’s forex reserves have shot up to USD 385 billion today as a consequence of his visits but also he has brought numerous industrial units from both the eat and the west to this country struggling so hard day and night to effect a breakthrough of sorts from its Third World ignominy!

Mind you he has boldly created history by treading with aplomb in a country where not one of his 13 predecessors dared set foot. They spoke with diffidence and gingerliness about that small but lion-hearted nation on all occasions.

The Indian media houses also played the faithful poodle, projecting the need for all Indians to be overcautious; they were hypocritical in their portrayal of that nation too in their write ups and thus they poisoned millions of young susceptible minds there![Paid news by pro Palestine lobbies across India is a threat to the national integrity itself! ]

Our so called politicians –including those free riders with shameless allegiances reaching  even abroad!–also were outraged by this announcement from the PMO and voiced their gratuitous opinions on behalf of the Palestine lobby but Modi’s team never felt heckled for a nanosecond!

This act of his gave Israel the needed fillip confidence-wise and also redefined India’s external global image as an eminently clubbable and get-along-able national entity!

It has actually been a 25 year long relationship enhancement and toning up process, to put it frankly. It was PV Narasimha Rao that visited Israel last .Over these 25 years Israel has unwaveringly proved to be India’s most trusted national security partner and defense gadgets supplier.

But for strong objections by a largely monopolist US supplier group, Israel would surely have shared cutting edge military hardware with India!

In spite of this India has often taken refuge like a poltroon behind self-doubts and misgivings on foreign for a whenever any reference was made to Israel’s right to not only exist as a brave nation but also work and prosper in West Asia! It needs global validators to affirm its right to exist on erstwhile Palestine territory on account of its own faith and its people’s lifestyle and faith.

Then, which other nation on this planet, including our Fatherland India, doesn’t want such affirmation of its own importance please?

 

 

HOPEFULS FOR A PRESIDENTIAL HOME!

 A TUG OF WAR FOR BEING PRESIDENT!

Being the President of India does lap you in utmost luxury no doubt –with vast gardens and dream rooms at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan–but then you have little political clout to get things done on your own. The Westminster kind of democratic governance system that we have confers far more authority on the PM primarily because the people have elected him to lead and spear head a whole Ministry with skilled hands!

Even then, of the 37 nominations filed for contesting this post, 25 have continued to stay in the fray though 9 were rejected outright on technical grounds!

I mention this to help you see for your own self the kind of characters that we have in this contest on the tournament grounds!

A senior citizen from Latur in Maharashtra—Kondekar Vijay Prakash –is one such contestant. Vijay Narain Pal of Rashtreeya Viklang Party…

HOPEFULS FOR A PRESIDENTIAL HOME!

 A TUG OF WAR FOR BEING PRESIDENT!

Being the President of India does lap you in utmost luxury no doubt –with vast gardens and dream rooms at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan–but then you have little political clout to get things done on your own. The Westminster kind of democratic governance system that we have confers far more authority on the PM primarily because the people have elected him to lead and spear head a whole Ministry with skilled hands!

Even then, of the 37 nominations filed for contesting this post, 25 have continued to stay in the fray though 9 were rejected outright on technical grounds!

I mention this to help you see for your own self the kind of characters that we have in this contest on the tournament grounds!

A senior citizen from Latur in Maharashtra—Kondekar Vijay Prakash –is one such contestant. Vijay Narain Pal of Rashtreeya Viklang Party is another. Still another hot blood is Sushil Kumar Agrawal, a simple law graduate. Two hail from Delhi and are basically businessmen-viz. Daya Shankar Agrawal and Amit Kumar Sharma. TDR Harishchandra Gowda, “an international astrologer” by his own claim, is another one. One person is an evergreen aspirant from Salem, given to losing in every election, by name Dr Padma Raja “the Election King”. A non-RJD man goes by the same name as Lalu.

A Mumbai couple also is passionate about taking on the President and Vice President Chairs; they are Saira Vano Mohammed Patel and her hubby Mohammed Patel. A Veerappan relative Agni Sreramachandram is also playing. A representative of the Bharat Ashraya Seva Samithi by name Ajay Kumar Gupta and a Hindustan Janata Party man by name Sanjay Saoji Deshpande are also dreaming hard of Rashtrapathi Bhavan.

The others are by name Mahesh Kumar Nimbekar of Lucknow, Anil Kumar Sharma from the Labor Party of India and Anand Singh Kushwah from Gwalior!

WHAT MERIT DO THESE PERSONS SEE INTHEMSELVES, APART FROM PERSONAL VANITY? I LEAVE THAT TO YOU,MY DEAR READERS!

Now let me dilate on one hot aspirant from the Opposition ranks viz Meira Kumar. She illustrates the hypocrisy of her party and has done so all along; she tells the blackest of lies too. That she was a most incompetent Speaker we all are aware of. She wishes to take out this same horrible incompetence into Rashtrapathi Bhavan.

Let her not hoodwink you or me into believing that it’s all about ideology and not about caste. But for her late father, that pot-bellied guy Jag Jivan Ram, and his caste label, both might never have come into the positions they came into. Caste alone helped the Union ministry decide in her favor.

So Ms Meira Kumar is telling the blackest and the most unconvincing lie that she has told in the whole of her life when she gives her stupid smile and says, “It’s about Ideology and not about caste”

I wonder what ideology she is actually referring to in this context unless it’s the same Storm Petrel or Grendel* demeanor of the Opposition we have today in the Parliament! [*Grendel was the sea monster that disliked happiness and harmony in any form among humans. It could emerge all of a sudden if it heard sounds of human laughter .We are told about how Beowulf killed it in the –palace of King Hrothgar)

As far as I, a lay citizen in this nation can see, the Opposition political outfit has consistently followed and abided by only a SINGLE ideology-the King Louis XIV principle of “After me the Deluge!” .Nothing Else!

Post 2014 Modi accession to PM position, Rahul and Co has only created needless and stupid controversies and unwholesome interruptions in the hallowed Parliament Halls. He has been roaming around the country like a flame thrower and fuming and fretting but entirely in vain.

Neither the residents or Amethi nor those in Rae Bareli- famed Nehru family constituencies- have forgotten the gross neglect into which the Congress party pushed them to live and die!

And we all know it.

Certainly it was not that she was exceptional in any convincing manner at any time in her whole life and career piggybacking on her birth caste label!

The Congress wished to retain the SC/ST Vote Bank by keeping it appeased in this manner for election victory purposes—and it backfired b/coz the party got exposed for its most treacherous intentions towards India and attachment to our hostile neighbor .Plus for lots of scams and shenanigans that are totally unforgivable, given the Sardarjee Sphinx PM rubber stamp or not.

Now the million dollar question arises in front of us all:

DO YOU WISH TO HAVE A SHAMELESS OPPORTUNIST, LIE ADDICT, ZERO IDEOLOGY PRESIDENT FOR THIS COUNTRY?
