We are creating a panel of volunteers to assist Sone Ki Chidiya movement, who can convert English documents rapidly
into Hindi/Marathi/Tamil/Telagu/Kannada/ native Bharatiya language versions – electronically.
If you are able to assist, please write to me, Sandeep Shelke, at (sandeepnshelke AT gmail DOT com) or to Sanjeev Sabhlok at (sabhlok AT gmail DOT com).
Or please contact retired people who might be willing to spare their time (but they must be able to use regional language fonts electronically, since the material will be shared as PDF on SKC website).
PS. Please widely share this blog post.

This is really sickness. They start demanding freebies whenever there is any disaster. But no contingency plan. No plan in place to empower farmers, to make them self dependent.
Lets stop this non sense once. Uddhav Thakare, I don’t support such naive demands. Every time demanding waivers, subsidies sound like beggar than self-respecting human. Where are the real demands for freedom, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, equal opportunity etc..

स्रोत: प्रा. र. पं. कंगले ह्यांच्या भाषांतरित ‘कौटिलीयम् अर्थशास्त्रम्’ ग्रंथामधून.
राजनितीवर पंथ-निरपेक्षपणे विचार करणारे प्राचीन भारतातील एकमेव शास्त्रीय लेखन. ह्या शास्त्रामध्ये सर्वस्वी इहलोकीच्या गोष्टींचाच विचार केला आहे.
सध्याच्या काळात अर्थशास्त्र हा शब्द ‘इकॉनॉमिक्स’ या अर्थी उपयोगात आणला जातो. परंतु ह्या ग्रंथाचा विषय तो नाही. १५व्या अधिकरणातील अर्थ ह्या शब्दाची व्याख्या:
“अर्थ म्हणजे उपजीविका, म्हणजेच मनुष्याची वस्ती असलेली भूमी. त्या भूमीचा म्हणजे पृथ्वीचा लाभ आणि तिचे पालन यांचे उपाय सांगणारे शास्त्र ते अर्थशास्त्र”(१५.१.१-२)
‘अर्थ’ म्हणजे इहलोकीच्या जीवनाची समृद्धता हा त्या शब्दाचा मूळ अर्थ. आणि हि समृद्धता संपत्तीमुळे प्राप्त होते. म्हणून संपत्ती असा ह्या शब्दाचा अर्थ होतो. सर्व प्रकारच्या संपत्तीच्या उत्पादनाला मनुष्याचे श्रम कारणीभूत होतात आणि हे उत्पादन अंततः भूमीतून – शेतांतून, खाणींतून - वैगेरे प्राप्त होते. तेव्हा संपत्तीनिर्मितीच्या मनुष्य व भूमी ह्या दोन्ही घटकांचा एकत्र निर्देश असलेला ‘मनुष्यांची वस्ती असलेला भूप्रदेश’ असा ह्या शब्दाचा अर्थ सहज निष्पन्न होतो.
पृथ्वीचा लाभ व पालन हि जी अर्थशास्त्राची दोन उद्दिष्टे त्यापैकी लाभाचा विचार म्हणजे मुख्यत्त्वेकरून एका राष्ट्राच्या दुसऱ्या राष्ट्रावरील आक्रमणाचा विचार. त्या संदर्भात साहजिकच परराष्ट्रसंबंधाचे विवेचन करणे क्रमप्राप्त होते. पालन करायचे ते पृथ्वीचे आणि तिच्यावरील माणसांचे. पृथ्वीचे पालन म्हणजे राष्ट्राचे रक्षण. ते रक्षण मुख्यतः शत्रूपासून करावयाचे असते. हा विषयही परराष्ट्रसंबधात अंतर्भूत आहे. राज्यातील मनुष्यांचे पालन म्हणजे त्यांचे दैवी आणि मानुषी आपत्तीपासून रक्षण करणे एवढाच अर्थ नसून त्यांच्या योगक्षेमाची काळजी वाहने हा अर्थ सुद्धा अभिप्रेत आहे. लोकांचे रक्षण करण्यासाठी आणि त्यांच्या योगक्षेमाची काळजी घेण्यासाठी कारभाराची मोठी यंत्रणा उभारणे आवश्यक असते. म्हणून अंतर्गत राज्यकारभाराचा विचार हे शास्त्राचे दुसरे अंग. ह्या दोन्ही अंगांचे – अंतर्गत राज्यकारभार आणि परराष्ट्रसंबंध यांचे – अत्यंत विस्तृत विवेचन कौटिलीय अर्थशास्त्रात केले आहे.

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.”

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.
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
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.
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).
