Today nation is celebrating 64th Republic day on 26th January 2014. There have been several attempts to subvert the constitution by some, like Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, Jaat Panchayats, some media houses etc. But I’m happy whenever there was any attempt to subvert constitution, citizens stood their ground in support of Republic of Bharat. Jai Bharat.
Bharat became independent on 15th August 1947 upon receiving the independent status within British Commonwealth from British empire. Officially Bharat became dominion of British Empire and remained so from 15th August 1947 to 26th January 1950. Dominion means an independent country but not an sovereign. Which precisely means we just had the political independence with allegiance to British crown [correct me if my understanding is incorrect]. That means we did not have own constitution to call it supreme hence Queen was supreme for us.
So the parliament formed the Constitution Drafting Committee under the leadership of Honorable Babasaheb (Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar) on 26th August 1947.
The drafting committee presented first draft on 4th Novemeber 1947, YES, within just 66 days the committee submitted the first draft. Of course they worked on it full-time. The draft was debated and over 2000 amendments were moved over the period of 2 years.
The assembly met for 166 days over almost 3 years from 4th November 1947 before constitution was signed by 308 members of assembly on 24th January 1950. On 26th January 1950 Bharat adopted the constitution signed by assembly and we became sovereign country.
The Bharatiya constitution is longest written constitution of any of sovereign country in the world. It contains 448 articles in 25 parts, 12 schedules, 5 appendices and 98 amendments.
I’m sure Mr Arvind Kejriwal, CM Delhi, must be having this knowledge. If not then please read this simplified version to understand the importance of Constitution.
Bharat spent Rs 10 Crore on constitution drafting till adoption to award ourselves Sovereignty. The state was deemed as servant of the citizens (of course its not the case practically, but that isn’t the fault of constitution) protector of citizen rights. Hence citizens now empower the state to govern for 5 years.
- Yes, the corrupt practices are haunting us because of socialist mindset of the politicians who fiddle the emotional cord of citizens to get votes.
- We must fight it, but constitution should not be challenged, yes we can amend it but must not discard.
- Yes, we must challenge the clauses and articles which empower state to encroach on citizen rights.
- Yes, we must change those which discriminate the citizens based on cast, color, religion, creed, gender.
- Yes there are some amendments which are against federal structure, citizens natural rights (like 42nd and 98th amendment) and those must be repelled.
But we must remember:
- Constitution is end of slavery.
- Constitution is supreme for Bharat.
- Constitution is the spirit of Bharat.

The idea of conducting road-trip has been on my mind for long time now. So to start with I chose following dates and route. This is a beginning to live what I love. Enough said and less done till date. Now I want to be myself again. I want to travel around the world but before I get there I’ll start with my country, state. I cordially invite anyone and everyone with motor-bike to join this trip at own expenses.
I’ve planned a road-trip from 21-22 Sept 2013 to 26-27 Sept 2013. The route is as shown in below map.
Route + Vague itinerary:
Itinerary isn’t fixed and would improve as we reach the places. As I said this is an purely exploratory trip. I don’t want to restrict by strict timings. The places are selected so, because I felt that way. No other motivation research went into it.
Mode of travelling:
Whoever wish to join please contact me at http://twitter.com/sandeepshelke

While browsing I found the document for Policy Career Guide at LibertyGuide. Bellow is something very interesting, motivational yet natural, which caught my attention.
Reproducing from the “Case Studies in Policy Rebecca Gaetz — South Carolina Policy Council”
Development is fast and intense. One minute I’m coordinating an event for hundreds of people and the next I’m nodding and smiling politely, as a major donor shakes with rage and says, “The president is leading all of us to the burning flames of hell.” True story.
A “typical day in the office” does not exist. Mail has to go out and members need to be touched. There is always a major grant proposal to write and deadlines to meet. It never fails that an important donor will call in the middle of chaos and require an hour of my time—which I am always delighted to give—no matter what.
My friends like to crack jokes about how exhausting it must be “thinking all day” at a think tank. Laugh as they may, it’s true. Producing is a major factor in fundraising, but “thinking” is also essential. I’m constantly thinking of dynamic ways to bring in more people and more money, and most nights, these thoughts even invade my dreams.
The best part of the day is opening mail—big checks are major motivators. Surprisingly, I’ve also started to appreciate hate mail from fringe fanatics and pamphlets from radicals. A strong sense of humor is a must in this job!
Here’s some advice for anyone considering a career in think tank development: The only way to sell your mission is to believe and understand it. It is critical to wrap your head around the policy before you can even begin to relate to donors. Another must in development is the ability to write clearly and concisely. Also, if you don’t like people, stay away. If you aren’t in front of a donor, you’ll be in front of your computer. Spreadsheets and databases are a necessary evil—but can be managed with the help of interns and (if you’re lucky) development staff.

I’ve 150+ blog posts on KrishiDesh. In which I used lots of images from the web. I added source and courtesy information to some but forgot to add to some of the images at the early times of the blog. I regret this mistake since I don’t any way to trace those images to its source and hence a problem of authorship. So if anybody finds that anything used in any of these posts belongs to you or person you may know then please bring it to my notice; I shall be more than happy and thankful to you.
Please help me make this more transparent and trustworthy. I appreciate your consistent support.

Initial work to conceptualise this movement is being done by a few interested individuals including by FTI. SKC is a broad-based movement for everyone in India. Its platform is available to everyone who wants liberty and good governance in India, based broadly on a draft vision.
