The Modi-fans…..

Prakash-The chaiwala from jhunjhunu-delivers tea at my office at sharp 10.30 a.m and 3.30 p.m. All the offices in our compound prefer to drink the tea made by Praksh. He is an ardent “Modi”-fan. Since last 2 months or so, he has been ostentatiously wearing a T-shirst, that has a photo of “Modi” and it reads “Ab ki Bar, Modi Sarkaar”. He has even changed the name of his shop to “Namo Tea stall”. Some days back I asked him, “doesn’t your open support to Modi, offend some of your customers, who support some other political parties?” His replied back zealously, “Hum to aise hi hain, jisko peena hoga wo peeyaga, jisko mera Modi-samarthak hona aacha nahi lagta, wo kahi aur piye.Deena wala to Bagwaan hai.(I am like this, if somebody is offended by my Modi-love, let him drink somewhere else. It is the God who is the universal giver.)”

Vikas-my friend from Varanasi told me over phone that Ajay rai-the congress candidate and Arvind Kejriwal-The AAP convener are actually fighting for the 2nd and 3rd position. He also emphasized that “Modi” will win by at least a margin of 2lakh votes. ”The crowds are absolutely loving Modiji, we(locals) have taken the Modi-elections very personally. The Benarasis are identifying themselves with Modiji. Modi’s win will be Varanasi’s win. It will be our win” said he in a confident tone.

His statement can be ascertained by the fact that colossal crowds, unheard before , followed “Modiji” everywhere in Varanasi. His opponents are left wonder-struck and they are gaping in surprise since “Modiji’s” first road-show on 24th April 14.His opponents have lost the elections mentally whilst the voting will be held after a few days on 12 May 14.

“The support given to Arvind Kejriwal by JD(U) and its ally CPI has once again exposed the communist support towards their co-ideologue AAP. The metamorphosis of Arvind Kejriwal from a known atheist to a Theist was just a tactics to garner Hindu-votes” said my friend vikas irritatingly. He further said, ”On Modi’s Yesterday(8/05/14) Road show, Kejriwal tweeted that , “No one needs any permission from the EC to perform rituals. Permission is required only for political activities. It seems Modi was aiming for electoral gains through aarti,”-what a joke!!! These words sound so funny, considering that Kejriwal is the official “Dramabaaz” of Indian politics. It is a well known fact that in the past, he even managed “self-attacks” and “self-slaps”, just to get Public sympathy.  said infuriated vikas.

I do call up my friends and acquaintances, in Varanasi since the day I heard that Modiji is contesting from Varanasi. The mood there is ebullientally “Modi-fied”. It seems that he will get more votes in Varanasi than in Vadodra. In vadodra the main opposition is congress and the main contestant fighting against Modi there is/was “Madhusudan Mistry”. However the results in both Varanasi and Vadodra will go in favour of Modi-for sure, irrespective of the fact that congress tried every trick in their sleeve to halt the Modi-juggernaut .

In Varanasi,The support given by the known inveterate criminal-Mukhtar Ansari-to Congress candidate is perfidious. It is more than foible on the part of congress to actually accept the support. This treacherous liaising speaks volumes about the decadent politics, congress has indulged into, just to stop “Modi. But the wishes of billions of Indians will make it sure that “Modiji” wins against all odds.

Prakash-our chaiwala-has announced that on 16th May, he will be offering free tea to everyone, as he is sure, like most of us that BJP will achieve an over-whelming victory over its rivals. In our office-compound, everyone has voted for “Modi”. So confident are my colleagues of “Modi’s” win, that they have already stocked crackers worth ten thousand rupees for the celebrations to be held on 16th may 2014. “This time we will celebrate Diwali on 16 may , that too in a broad daylight. we will express our joy with bursting crackers, and exchanging sweets.” said Sachin, my friend , who has a office in the same compound.

Though 16 may is a working day, but I am sure that most of the Indians will be glued to T.V. Everyone is anxiously waiting for that red letter day when the aspirations of billion Indias will come true. The day when “Narendra bhai Modi” will be officially declared, the prime minister of India. I have my fingers crossed….

open letter to Anna hazareji/India against corruption

To

                                                        Sh. Anna Hazareji/India against corruption

                                                       

 

 

Respected Shri Annaji,

Pranaam!

My name is Sandeep koul and I am internally displaced person/Refugee from Kashmir .

 

Sir,Day before yesterday when I switched on the T.V, I was surprised to see Mr. Prashant Bhushan being slapped by young Inder verma, Though I don’t support any form of violence, at the same time one cannot condone the  anti-national statement of Mr Bhushan. I was surprised even more when they showed the pictures of other two accused-Tejinder pal singh Bagga and Vishnu Gupta, surprised because I can recall vividly meeting Tejinder at jantar mantar, when you were on fast ,so that Lokpal could be tabled in next session.He was there managing the long queues along with other volunteers. Prashant Bhushan’s statement offended them so much that they took law in their own hands, which was off course wrong, But don’t we eulogise Chander shekhar and Bhagat singh, even though they choose different path than Gandhiji, for the same goal.

I was present when you-Annaji- were Fasting at Janatar Mantar,  I also fasted  that day as a mark of solidarity with you Sh. Annaji.I could not attend at Ramlila, But I did pray to God for the success of anti-corruption movement, I also prayed to God for your good health  and all those who fasted with You.I participated in the solidarity marches as well as candle light processions with my neighbors. I bursted crackers when You proved Your mettle again. I also went to Medanta city hospital where you was recuperating. Since then I started to keep a photo  of you in my wallet and admired it whenever I opened my Purse. When people compared You to Mahatma Gandhi, I used to feel that you deserves that epithet.

 

Like many, I was feeling that a new dawn will make India emerge stronger and more prosperous, But the gods above had different plan. My dreams were shattered when I heard the Team Anna’s Prashant Bhushan openly advocating plebiscite on Kashmir. It was as if I have been stabbed on my back by my loved one, I could not sleep whole night as I was haunted by the memories of my childhood which I spent in Kashmir, Suddenly I could hear those clarion calls for killing of my brethren in the name of jihad, The cacophony of loudspeakers from the nearby mosque of my locality kept ringing in my ears wherein  the Mullahs termed my community of Kashmiri Pandits as traitors, the strident noise of stones falling on the roof top made of tin sheets, that  shriller could pierce anyone’s heart and make even the strong shudder with fear. Those unpleasent reminiscences were re-created by the statement of Prashant Bhushan-Noted lawyer of India.

I felt I have been wronged and cheated yet again!

 

But There are some questions which  needs a answer and Justification from those whom I trusted-Team Anna.

 

sir,as we Know ,Last two days have put Kashmir back to the center stage, this time though from someone whom the Nation considered to be a torch bearer of new-renaissance-Mr Prashant Bhushan-core team member of Team Anna. While you are trying to re-unite the whole nation , your colleague is trying to break our nation by his blatant utterances on Kashmir. Mr. Prashant Bhushan’s  obnoxious  statement on Kashmir  is what Pakistan and its stooges -the separatists of Kashmir-have been advocating since last many decades.

 

Is the responsibility of plebiscite only India’s obligation? How can we forget the other half of Kashmir  which is illegally occupied by Pakistan since last may decades! Isn’t Mr. Bhushan aware of the fact that Pakistan has changed the whole demography in P.O.K on the same lines as China has done in Tibet! How can Mr. Bhushan forget  Pakistan’s obsequiousness to China, by illegally  gifting Aksai chin, which is a part of unified Jammu and Kashmir. Doesn’t  India give people of J&k right to  participate in referendum  every five years in the form of General elections!

Pakistan has changed all the equations which existed in 1947,  it has also tactfully used the religious sentiments of majority community in Kashmir to alienate them from India, thus making it a definite possibility that in case of Plebiscite, Kashmir accedes to Pakistan.

 

The results of Plebiscite in Kashmir will be detrimental to people of India and I fear that if it happens ever, India will witness probably the worst carnage, and I fear  most of the minorities will be at receiving end. We have already seen the India-Pakistan Partition wherein it is estimated that at least a million people lost their lives. Are we preparing ground for another holocaust by  advocating  Plebiscite on Kashmir!

 

What about the families of all the Martyr’s of India who gallantly fought the wars with Pakistan in 1947,1965,1971 and 1999.They must have been filled with chagrin by the statement of Mr. Bhushan. Had Mr. Bhushan, not been associated with Anti-Corruption Movement, His statement would  have hardly raised so many eye brows,It seems Mr Bhusham has forgotten the fact that that with the anti-corruption movement spear headed by you, His stature has also grown mammothly, his statement on anything will be seen as the statement of his whole group, hence he should have been more careful .

Adding fuel to the fire, he still stands on his stance on plebiscite on Kashmir thereby putting a big question mark on his Patriotism and also the group which he represents. The other members of the group –,Mr Arvind Kejriwal and Mr Kumar Vishwas have clarified their stand on Kashmir and termed it as an integral part of India with you-Annaji- saying that “ Kashmir was a part of India,is a part of India and will remain so”..

 

The Question arises “ If other members of team Anna feel so strongly about Kashmir, why haven’t  you and your team ousted Mr Bhushan from your team?” From my point of view any remark on anti-corruption or patriotism by team Anna will be an unctuous statement till Mr Bhushan remains a part of the core team. we, the people of India will have to prioritize our issues between anti-corruption and National integrity, we can fight corruption only when we remain together as a Nation, Otherwise we can keep on fighting corruption and in this process we may have to wash our hands from North-East, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Maoists infested states of orirsa, chattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Bihar and Many more and not just Kashmir…
