I’ve not seen the movie ‘Vishwaroopam. But, I support the freedom of expression, peaceful, for all; that doesn’t mean I agree with what one says/does. Everybody is solely responsible for their acts.
Even if anybody creating art in bad taste, the viewer has the choice of ignoring it. That’s what is the meaning tolerance, which this land has protected for hundreds of years. Now we need to increase the liberty to atain the lost prosperity and freedom.
Say no to state terrorism.
Disgusting to see that an artist, like Kamal Hasan, being forced to leave the country. Are we really progressing? Do we really understand freedom of expression? Who are these thugs, goons to oppress any creative work/thought?
This is the land which gave birth an art like ‘Kamasutra’. This is the land which saw birth over a half a dozen religions.
Dr. Ambedkar rendered a constitution which ensures freedom of speech, expression and profession to every citizen irrespective of gender, creed, religion. And the intolerant fascist forces, which are really very few but united, are attempting to topple the very constitution itself. That is a challenge to sovereignty of this nation and to me it’s no lesser than an emergency. If some thugs are challenging the creative art by violent protests then police should arrest them, and courts should deliver the justice. But they all right to protest, peacefully, at designated public places while making sure not creating nuisance, disturbance to others.
I thought courts are here to upheld the constitution but they seem to have forgotten their job. What role does any court has in liaising? They have to deliver justice and that’s it. No moral policing at all.
But certainly leaving the nation isn’t a solution. Since, he is also part of this nation and should fight back.
SabhlokCity “While an analytic critique of a religion is fine, vilification and abuse of a religion is not.”
Join ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ movement. Lets build the nation of our dreams. Lets restore the lost glory.

There are numerous places in Maharashtra where the draught has become an routinely affair now. Every few years it returns people start looking towards sky and government. To which sky, sometimes, answers, since it is capable; but government always fails because they are unprepared, dont know what to do and even aren’t willing to do.
What to do? I took upon an experiment of artificial rainfall in my village during 14-19 August 2012. Only to avail no results. I won’t say it failed, but I learned that ‘the end moment heroics doesn’t save sinking ship, it just raises the hope’. Upon putting more thought into the problem, I realized that wherever there are more trees and residual water the rainfall is higher.
So simple, right? Eureka. Now, started thinking about planting trees all of a sudden to which my friend, Sandeep Gaiwad, added fuel by sharing this video.
Now I’m dreaming of planting 10Lakh(1 million) trees in draught prone areas of Maharashtra to start with. I don’t know where to start? Where it will lead? But I’m sure that, at least, I’ll plant some trees wherever possible. I dream of green and liveable Bharat. I dream of prosperous and free Bharat. I dream of making Bharat a place was know in history for its wealth and might.
I’m inspired by Chipko Movement too. Must read it.
So I created some pages on Intent and Posibl to attract more and more like minded people.
If you like the idea please share views, alternatives and all possible information which can help in this endeavour.

I love the Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s speech delivered at time of presenting the constitution to constituent assembly for voting on 25 November 1949.
I’ll present it bit by bit as time permits. Here is how he concluded his speech to adjourn the assembly and that defines who was the Dr Ambedkar, beloved Babasaheb.
…Independence is no doubt a matter of joy. But let us not forget that this independence has thrown on us great responsibilities. By independence, we have lost the excuse of blaming the British for anything going wrong. If hereafter things go wrong, we will have nobody to blame except ourselves. There is great danger of things going wrong.
Times are fast changing. People including our own are being moved by new ideologies. They are getting tired of Government by the people. They are prepared to have Governments for the people and are indifferent whether it is Government of the people and by the people. If we wish to preserve the Constitution in which we have sought to enshrine the principle of Government of the people, for the people and by the people, let us resolve not to be tardy in the recognition of the evils that lie across our path and which induce people to prefer Government for the people to Government by the people, nor to be weak in our initiative to remove them.
That is the only way to serve the country. I know of no better.

Reproducing from Sanjeev Sabhlok’s Revolutionaty Blog
Everything must start with an idea.
Some time ago it became evident that we needed a new wholistic (not just anti-corruption) movement for reform in India. It had to capture the aspirations of India, and not just be “anti-” this or “anti-” that.
There had to be a positive goal attached to the movement.
Therefore, after much thinking and discussion, FTI’s new logo (Sone Ki Chidiya) was developed as the title for a possible new movement.
Today that movement has been launched, like a “diya” launched on the Ganga. Attached to that is a draft vision, which will be significantly refined in the coming weeks.
The idea has evolved into a small website, and we are hoping to hold a summit in April to discuss the precise reform pathway with anyone who is interested.
Those interested in taking this forward may wish to follow the guidance given at the website.
One of the key factors in favour of this title for the movement was Swami Ramdev’s personal request to me, a month ago in Haridwar, to use FTI’s Sone Ki Chidiya logo on his own vision document released (printed 100,000 copies) last month.
Here is the website. Please visit it. http://sonekidichiya.in/.
The image below shows the use of Sone Ki Chidiya logo in Swamiji’s vision for India.
(You can also, if you wish, download the Bharat Swabhiman vision document – in Hindi – about 7MB. Some of the points in this vision have been included into the SKC draft vision, which will be improved considerably in the coming weeks through extensive review/ discussion/ consultation).

मराठीमध्ये येथे वाचा
Congress Lead Central Govt,
Respected Prime Minister,
It seems you have lost the sense of responsibility by looking at your and your government’s response to the incidences in recent few years. I’m taking this effort to remind your basic responsibilities.
Works you are appointed for:
1. Protecting freedom of speech, movement and profession of your citizens
2. Delivering equal justice to all citizens
3. Securing your citizens life and property from internal and external enemy
4. Ensuring equal opportunity for all citizens (by developing basic infrastructure)
And along with that answering all questions by your citizens and presenting expenditure reports to them.
You took the oath to carry out all your responsibilities with all loyalty but, regrettably, you could not deliver even one of them. Here are few examples for your information, if you are not sure what I’m talking about.
1. According to some of your rules your people arrested a young cartoonist for drawing a cartoon, no action against those who arrested him.
2. There was loss of life and property of the people who migrated from other parts to Assam and Maharashtra, here also no action against the perpetrators.
3. Forget about equal justice you didn’t even dismiss/expel those who looted the national exchequers.
4. There is rampant atrocities against women across the nation including, shamefully, the capital of the nation, frauds, cheating is endless and what is your response to it? Nothing, instead your colleagues started creating controversies by spreading lies about that subject leaving citizens with dismay and discontent.
5. Some terrorists crossed the border and wrecked havoc in nation, what did you do? Instead you started cricket diplomacy. Shame.
6. Not just that soldiers of that country killed our soldiers brutally and took away head of one of the soldiers, leaving whole country deep anger and helplessness. But your colleagues advised us not to get involve into jingoism. Without stopping there they grew their rhetoric by saying we have greater threat from opposition political party. What did you do?
7. In such circumstances instead of worrying about safety and security of citizens Home Minister made baseless allegation that Hindu/Saffron terrorism is growing. Really, Hindu Terrorism? If that’s the truth then 80% of the Hindu population would have created havoc in whole world. In this way he started abusing the most secular and tolerant people of the world.
8. Rural population is dying for a drop of water while huge water wastage observed widely in many cities. What steps did you take?
9. The quality education and reliable health-care is still a dream for common citizens, what did you do? You launched new schemes, without accountability, to create new lawns for rampant corruption. On top of that you forget them very conveniently.
10. If any citizen asks questions or demands accounts to you or your government, then citizens get bullied, harassed by income tax department or arrested. Are you elected to let your government be vindictive seeking revenge?
11. A citizen arrested on Saturday mid-night and then tortured and physically abused in an illegal custody. Why? Because, his brother, a senior advocate, is fighting a case against government in Supreme Court;
Now after all these mistakes, deliberate or unknowingly, why you be allowed to continue in office? Why you not be charged with breaking trust and disrespecting constitution and sovereignty of citizens?
And remember don’t ever think who is this person to teach me my job? I’m, your master, a sovereign citizen of this nation. You can’t challenge my authority.
- An awakened citizen.

Read in English
कॉंग्रेस प्रणीत केंद्र सरकार,
मा. पंतप्रधान महोदय,
गेल्या काही वर्षांमधील घटना आणि त्यावर तुमच्या सरकारच्या आणि परिणामी तुमच्या प्रतिक्रिया पाहिल्यावर असे दिसते कि तुम्हाला तुमच्या कामाचा विसर पडला आहे. त्या मुलभूत कामांची तुम्हाला आठवण करून देण्यासाठी, हा खटाटोप.
तुम्हाला ठरवून दिलेली मुख्य कामे:
१. नागरिकांचे व्यक्ती, संचार आणि व्यवसाय स्वातंत्र्य अबाधित राखणे
२. सर्वांना समान न्याय मिळवून देणे
३. अंतर्गत आणि बाह्य शत्रुंपासून जीवन आणि मालमत्तेची सुरक्षा करणे
४. समान संधी (त्यासाठी पायाभूत सुविधांचा विकास) मिळवून देणे
ह्यासोबतच, प्रत्येक पै-न-पै चा हिशेब देणे आणि विचारलेल्या प्रश्नांची उत्तरे देणे.
वर ठरवून दिलेली कामे इमाने-इतबारे करण्याची शपथ घेतलेली असताना, खेदाची गोष्ट म्हणजे, तुम्ही ह्यातील एकही गोष्ट देऊ/पाळू शकला नाहीत. ह्याची नमुनादाखल खाली काही उदाहरणे दिली आहेत. क्रमशः
१. मागे एका व्यंग चित्रकाराने चित्र काढले म्हणून तुमच्याच कुठल्यातरी नियमानुसार त्याला अटक केली, अटक करणाऱ्यांवर काहीच कारवाई नाही.
२. महाराष्ट्र आणि आसाम मध्ये दुसऱ्या राज्यांमधून आलेल्या नागरिकांच्या जीवन आणि मालमत्तेचे नुकसान झाले, कोणावर काहीच कारवाई नाही.
३. समान न्याय दूरच राहिला परंतु देशाची संपत्ती लुटून भ्रष्टाचार करणाऱ्या तुमच्याच सहकाऱ्यांना साधे निलंबित सुद्धा केले नाही.
४. राजधानी सहित संपूर्ण देशभरात महिलांवरील अत्याचार, लुटमार आदींची परिसीमा झालेली असताना तुमच्याकडून काय पाऊल उचलले गेले? काहीच नाही याउलट, नको त्या विषयांवरून तुमच्या सहकाऱ्यांनी प्रसार माध्यमांमधून गदारोळ उठवून देशात अशांतंता निर्माण करण्याचे प्रयत्न केले.
५. सीमारेषा ओलांडून येउन काही दहशतवाद्यांनी देशाला वेठीस धरले, तुम्ही काय केले? तर त्या देशासोबत क्रिकेटच्या माध्यमातून चर्चा वाढवली.
६. एवढेच नाही तर त्या देशाने आपल्या सैनिकांना शांतंता रेषेजवळ अमानवीय रीतीने छळ करून मारले आणि एका सैनिकाचे शीर पळविले. तुमच्या सहकाऱ्यांनी देशप्रेमाच्या नावाखाली अतिरेक करू नका असे आम्हालाच सुनावले. एवढ्यावर न थांबता देशाला विरोधी पक्षापासून जास्त धोका आहे असे जाहीर प्रकटन करायला सुरुवात केली.
७. अशा परिस्थितीमध्ये गृहमंत्र्यांनी देशाची चिंता करायची सोडून बेछूट आणि बिन-बुडाचे युक्तिवाद सुरु केले कि ‘हिंदू दहशतवाद’ फोफावला आहे. खरच का? तसे असते तर ८०% हिंदू जनतेने जगभर हाहाकार माजवला असता. जगातील सर्वात सृजनशील आणि सहिष्णू समाजालाच दुषणे लावायला सुरुवात केली.
८. आम्हाला ग्रामीण भागात पिण्याच्या पाण्याची भ्रांत असताना काही शहरांमधून पाण्याचा भल्या मोठ्या प्रमाणावर अपव्यय होताना दिसतो. तुम्ही काय पाऊले उचलली?
९. सर्वसाधारण गरीब जनतेला दर्जेदार शिक्षण आणि आरोग्य सुविधा उपलब्ध नाहीत. तुम्ही काय केले? प्रत्येक वेळी एक नवीन योजना काढून भ्रष्टाचाराचे कुरण तयार केले. आणि नंतर रीतसरपणे विसरून जाता किंवा दुर्लक्ष करता.
१०. तुम्हाला जर कोणी प्रश्न विचारला, हिशोब मागितला तर तुम्ही आम्हाला अटक करता नाही तर आयकर विभागाकडून तपासाचा ससेमिरा नाहक मागे लावता. असे डूख धरून सूड बुद्धीने काम करायला आणि भाऊ-बंधकी निभवायला तुमची निवड केलीय का?
११. एका वकिलाने सर्वोच्च न्यायालयात सरकारच्या विरोधी बाजू घेतली; म्हणून, तुमच्याच कोण्या एका सहकाऱ्याने पोलिसांकडून त्या वकिलाच्या भावाला शनिवारी मध्यरात्री अटक केली आणि तुरुंगात बेदम मारहाण केली.
एवढे सगळे झाल्यावर, इतक्या सगळ्या चुका केल्यावर तुम्हाला हे काम करण्याची अजूनही संधी का द्यावी? संविधान आणि नागरिकाच्या सार्वभौमत्त्वाचा अनादर केला म्हणून तुमच्यावर अविश्वास ठराव का ठेवू नये?
आणि हो हे पत्र वाचल्यावर हा कोण, मला माझे काम सांगणारा? असा विचार चुकुनही करू नका कारण, मी, तुमचा मालक, ह्या देशाचा सार्वभौम नागरिक आहे.
– एक जागसुक नागरिक.

No change to the original post. Here it is as it is, I agree 100% to Sanjeev ji’s views here.
It was of course expected. This joke that there is none other than this “young” fool from India’s super-corrupt dynasty that is suitable to run India’s oldest political party.
But I hope these people realise that they have given a HUGE lie to the idea that India is a democracy.
What’s the probability that in a billion strong population, the leadership of a “national” DEMOCRATIC party in India will come from the same family TWICE in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi)
Now what’s the probability such leadership will come from the same family THRICE in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi)
What about FOUR times in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi)
What about FIVE times in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi).
I suspect the probability is lower than the probability of finding a particular atom among all atoms in the universe, or something of that order.
I’m not a fan of of Shashi Tharoor but at least I know that he is 100000000000000^1000000000 (“^” is an exponent) times better than Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi.
There are MANY others in Congress whom Congress could have picked.
But they HAD to choose Rahul Gandhi. And we know Priyanka is next in line, since Rahul is such a well known fool.
When in February 2010 Nandan Nilekani suggested I join an existing party he almost certainly meant Congress.
But why in heaven’s name will I join Congress when I KNOW that (even) my calibre, my competence will be INSULTED by these THIRD RATE CROOKS and I’ll be expected to lick their boots?
I’m not surprised at MMS doing that. He is such a spineless twit. But I’m amazed that Shashi Tharoor DAILY licks the boots of such GOONS.
I wish he had some self respect. Then India could have been different.
I even now invite Shashi Tharoor to RESIGN from Congess and apply to join FTI. He is not going to qualify easily. We’ll need to do a thorough checkup of his accounts and assets, but at least he has a chance of being accepted as a future leader of India if he tries hard enough to join FTI. In Congress, his chance is ZERO.
I keep in touch with Mr Nikelani whom I greatly admire. I’ll send a link to this blog post to him. I hope he understands where I come from.
Respect. Please! Let’s get some self-respect in India.
Democracy should MEAN democracy. Not rule by GOONS who have cornered the greatest quantity of BLACK MONEY.
In fact, had Jawaraharal himself been born today and not been a member of this dynasty, there would be NO CHANCE that he would be promoted to senior positions by this same party.
And Gandhi would have had to flee India, back to South Africa.

In 1971 rape cases were 2,487 and those in 2011 were 24,206. Population of Bharat in 1971 was 54,81,60,050(54.81 Crores) and in 2011 was 1,21,01,93,422 (121.01 Crores).
i.e. 0.0004537% women were rape victims in 1971 which means there was average 1 rape victim in 2,48,600 people. Which has grown to 0.002000176% women in 2011 means on an average 1 rape victim in 50000. A jump in rape crime by 5 times in 4 decades.
What the hell is happening? Where are we heading?
Why this society is deteriorating (I don’t think my society is deteriorating but few media divas feel so)?
I think it’s the governance failure. I think the law machinery isn’t natural, its biased. Takes hell lot of time to deliver justice and in process leaves victim to face the heat while accused is on bail.
It’s the government and leadership failure. Law punishes drunken driving convict with 2 years imprisonment (while s/he can kill people on road). But punished the non-licensed (?) liquor drinker with 7 years imprisonment (For drinking illegally, which is certainly less dangerous and drunken driving).
That’s the problem I’m talking about. We need to get rid of this governance failure and for sure rest of the things would fall in line. To achieve better and lean governance lets come together. http://freedomteam.in is the platform for those who can catalyse this change i.e. establish liberty.
