DEMONETIZATION- A PROXY WAR ON BLACK MONEY

Image
A year ago, on 8th November 2016, Narendra Modi led BJP government took a decision to demonetize the currency of 500 & 1000 notes. The aim remains to thrash & curb the circulation of black money which persists in domestic market. It is also said that demonetization will act against terrorism by preventing the circulation of fake currency note printed “across the border”? This argument hinges crucially on the assumption that the technology employed in printing the new tender will prevent any possibility of faking it. The Demonetization of 86 percent of the currency of the country, a virtually unprecedented measure anywhere in the world, has brought immense hardship to the working people of the country, and has damaged their living standards permanently. Many however believed that it was a step being taken for the greater social good, for achieving certain important social goals. A REALITY CHECK:- RBI report of this year said- “As of end- March 2016, Gross Non Performing Assests…

‘Matas’ Of ‘Bharat’ Bleed Monthly, You Can’t Celebrate Them Until You Accept Them

The human race, as we know it, aspires to achieve limitless success, and with pride and respect. Then, suddenly, a question pops in my mind. Is it being done without hurting someone’s dignity? The answer is no. And here’s why. While reasons are numerous, I feel like we need to raise a basic but necessary concern. Our society has been constantly endorsing gender-based violence, in the form of partial treatment, and discrimination, on a large scale, under the respectable banner of ‘culture’ and ‘tradition’. All my life, growing up in India, I have seen and heard about rigid and brutal stands on menstruation. As a human being and as a biologist it’s shameful to acknowledge such a natural phenomenon being labelled as a taboo, without any scientific backing. It openly excludes women from many aspects of socio-cultural life. This has its impact on the psychological state of young girls and women. Some of the cultural connotations related to menstruation are avoiding certain food items, sit…

E.V.Ramasamy Periyar on Bhagat Singh

Image
On 138th birth anniversary of E.V. Ramasamy Periyar, I recall his views on Shaheed Bhagat Singh. Bhagat Singh became a national hero immediately after the Assembly Bomb Explosion on April 9, 1929. Till then he was known as a thinking young nationalist among the Naujawan Bharat Sabha activists in areas around Punjab. He had also grown into a popular ideologue in the underground circle of revolutionaries of Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (HSRA). However, it was this daring act on April 9 which catapulted him to national fame. As planned in advance, the court hearings during the trial were used as a platform to address the fellow Indians and sensitise them about HSRA’s ideology and programme. His writings from the prison were surreptitiously sent out and published by the nationalist press. The martyrdom of Bhagat Singh on March 23, 1931 led to a widespread condemnation of the act and also support for the politics he espoused in his short life.One of the most articulate and st…

DISRESPECTING WOMEN

Image
The patriachial society of which we are prideful is becoming an insane inhuman place for women community. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made a joke of itself by exposing it's unjust character to disrespect dignity of women community.In textbook of Physical education a section of book openly says the best measurement of a female body is 36-24-36. What does this signify? What message does it give to students? Simple answer is it show the way to play with dignity of women community, openly that too via route of education.
This government at the centre has proved in every sense that they can cross any limit to flaunt image of a particular community. For me personally it is not a mistake but a planned attack on women section in accordance to principle of Manusmriti, the holy Hindu scripture. As a youth I condemn this insensitive, insane decision which is degradation of society via education.http://homegrown.co.in/article/800907/this-cbse-textbook-claims-that-36-24…

Why I Think India Is Letting Down Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev And Rajguru

The Martyrdom Of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, RajguruThe year 2017 marks the 86th year of martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru. They symbolise the best example of sacrifice to free India from the imperial clutches of British rule. We have kept them at a place in our heart, loaded with emotions. However, we have very less exposure to their visionary battle against British rule. These revolutionaries envisioned India’s future as a nation where there would be social, political and economic freedom. Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, i.e., leaders of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association, represented one of the major currents of the freedom movement. One was led by the Indian National Congress, under the leadership of MK Gandhi. However, people like Bhagat Singh and his comrades, EV Ramasamy Periyar, Subhash Chandra Bose, were part of one current, which undoubtedly stood for an egalitarian char…

Letter to younger brother Kultar Singh by Bhagat Singh dated 3rd March 1931अजीज कुलतार,आज तुम्हारी आँखों में आँसू देखकर बहुत दुख हुआ। आज तुम्हारी बातों में बहुत दर्द था, तुम्हारे आँसू मुझसे सहन नहीं होते।बरखुर्दार, हिम्मत से शिक्षा प्राप्त करना और सेहत का ख्याल रखना। हौसला रखना और क्या कहूँ!उसे यह फ़िक्र है हरदम नया तर्ज़े-ज़फा क्या है,
हमे यह शौक़ है देखें सितम की इन्तहा क्या है।
दहर से क्यों खफ़ा रहें, चर्ख़ का क्यों गिला करें,
सारा जहाँ अदू सही, आओ मुकाबला करें।
कोई दम का मेहमाँ हूँ ऐ अहले-महफ़िल,
चराग़े-सहर हूँ बुझा चाहता हूँ।
हवा में रहेगी मेरे ख्याल की बिजली,
ये मुश्ते-ख़ाक है फानी, रहे रहे न रहे।अच्छा रुख़सत। खुश रहो अहले-वतन; हम तो सफ़र करते हैं। हिम्मत से रहना। नमस्ते।तुम्हारा भाई,
भगतसिंह

As citizen of this nation we must stand to reject us efforts of hatred and animosity harming our rich proud legacy of sacrifice, struggle and service.

The resistance against illegitimate grab of Jal, Jungle and Jameen needs to increased. For such a spirit, i recall, remember the beacon of advasi revolt, Tilka Manjhi on his 232rd martyrdom.Salute to his martyrdom!
