How government is, at first, planning to render the farmers jobless and then spending exchequer’s money to make them employable labors at industries to be setup?
- More thank 2.5 Lakh farmers committed suicide in Bharat since 1995. [Read stats]
- Maharashtra is leading the chart by accounting for more than 30% suicide cases.
- Through policy of freebies, NREGA, controlled market government has paralyzed the farming community.
- On one side our food production is not enough e.g. pulses, cereals while whatever being produced is of less nutritional values.
- PM lost his sleep when a person was arrested under the charges of terrorist activity in Australia. But he does not talk about 70-75Crore farming population’s agony. Without fail he says there is 70% excess human resources in farming, on what basis he made this statement? Is he following the designs of making this nature loving, agrarian economy into an urbanized industrial economy which will be dependent on foreign countries for food at the end of the day?
- I do not oppose promoting modernization or industries but making policies to exploit one section to serve other isn’t a leader is expected to do.
- P. Chidambaram propose to convert land owners into industrial labours by acquiring land, setting up businesses and then employing the land owners as labours. For that he propose to setup 1000 training schools. This all on the suggestions of world bank. Did he bother to go and ask the farmers for that matter? No he did not.
- Sole question is why not to promote agriculture to the fullest through farmer friendly policies. If at all you want to setup industry have the land owners as partners, share earning with farmer.
- E.G. At my in-laws village there is one farmer family who earn Rs. 1Cr per year from pomegranate orchard of 9 acres. Can Mr. MMS and Mr. PC make sure that he will continue to earn this much after industry setup? Not just that my in-laws earn Rs.10-13 Lakh per year in Sugar cane crop from 6 acres while having the luxury to eat fresh vegetables and freedom from pressure. Will he be able to maintain this lifestyle?
- Kautilya has clearly asked to develop rural area through agricultural economic activities. Gandhiji too asked for “Gram Swaraj”. And this Harvard/Cambridge tribe of politicians want rampant urbanization that too on behest of world bank/IMF. A question arises then for whom are the policies? are they for us or the IMF/World bank?
- Kautilya has emphasized on Aanvikshiki (Philosophy) at the start of the book. Because he want the King/Leader/Minister to be a person with logical reasoning.
- Kautilya repetitively speaks about sustainable development. If food is imported then how can it be sustainable?
- Kautilya talks of Association with elders and continuous learning. Our politicians seem to be forgetting the importance of the thoughts proposed by our elders and wise at various times.
- Society has to become duty centric by shunning right seeking attitude, since exploitation is not a way of human life, exploitation is barbarism.

Swatantrya never comes free. Swatantrya can never be kept for free.
Today I’m making myself available for full-time to active politics for development of my nation Bharat.
My aim would be to fight for empowerment for rural Bharat.
I will work for improving rural infrastructure (backbone of economy), education, employment/entrepreneurship. This does not need to be for any particular caste, creed, race or religion. Since poverty never shows mercy.
As my mentor says “Reclaiming Bharat one-step at a time“, this is my first step to reclaim Bharat.
I’m joining Chanakya Institute of Public Leadership for its second batch from 10th October 2011.
Up until July 2011 I worked for Cognizant Technology Solutions as IT Professional. I worked in IT for nearly 5 years. Along with full-time job I worked for iKnowledge Academy as visiting trainer/mentor for 2.5years. And finally on 15 July 2011 made myself free from the daily routine. Its not that I’ve earned a lot to support my aspirations, its also not that I’ve inherited huge assets.
Sincerely from the bottom of my heart:
Its my passion, and commitment to social cause and patriotism well supported by parents (Bai- Appa), my elder sister Asha (her name says it all) and my to be wife, Rekha (Getting married on 1st October 2011). They stood by me to help me get rid of all my loans and regular expenses. I’m indebted by their herculean gesture. My younger sister Usha and cousin sister Poonam too believe I can be the catalyst. My uncle and to be in-laws too decided to stand by me.
Its not just my immediate family but my friends and mentors too, who continuously inspired and guided me through various situations. Like Shri Shantanu Bhagwat, Shmt Akalpita Paranjape who took time and effort to guide me. Friends like Avinash, Bhupendra, Saroj, Mahesh, Prasanta, Swarup, Bharat Kardak, Subhash Pakhare always inspire and believe in me for my genuine feelings towards the nation. Especially, Avinash is the man who keeps saying always “Go for it, you can do it. We need people like you to go there”.
Veterans like Shri Raju Parulekar, Shri Shailesh Pandey, Shri Ranganathan, Shri Devdutt welcomed my move and lend a hand of support in future.
Last but the most important Shri Radhakrisna Pillai and Shri Jagdish Shetty directors of CIPL Mumbai. Shri Shetty interviewed me and offered this opportunity to study ancient wisdom of Bharat blended with modern politics.
