There was a conversation on the positive thinking and acting for progressive life. My friend was assertive that nothing goes beyond karma or fate written already. Life is not Jinga lala, as some advertisement says. Hence only the best never rises up. On the contrary, the one at the bottom makes surprise upcoming. Politics and the cine-field is one such.
2 Can it be denied? No. Its truth. Every conscious knows the cause of its success or failure genuinely. However, for outside world, the tongue elaborately twists the causes. Well. Human live unabashedly. Hypocrisy thy name is human factor. Then can we close at it? Can one however hard the truth may be, if he sits with folded hands, will survive? You may say that if his fate is to die like that then? O K. Is it life solution or meaningful life?
3. Stress is a greater subject from then till now. Stress keeps the body and the mind tied down without the movements. Sat chit anandam is the truth and the worldly happiness is Maya, as seen in scriptures. However melancholy is not welcome which mars the sustenance and the actions of life. Opposite of stress is the action and the action is the Karma. The first stress counselor was Lord Krishna and he counseled the Bhagavat Gita, for the stressed man Arjun.
4. Gita is the stress reliever book, whereas as we read the commentary of the westerner for Vedas, so do we read a lot of the western thoughts on stress. Don’t we?
5. Karma is written already and is an absolute truth and stress is equally unwanted also. Then does it not say that the life comprises of certain” uncertain truth “and also “leads kindly light” to lead a righteous, resounding path, knowing fully well the uncertainty. That’s the route of the “sthitha pragnan” or normal mans path-drive starting from the zero velocity to the unlimited.
6. The cause of the stress is inaction, indecisiveness, and imbalance. Arjuna was under duress and the Himalayan stress made him forget who is he? He forgot to pursue the required routine action. Why? He thought that he shall be killing his close relatives, Guru, Grand parents, brothers etc which according to him presumed as immoral activities bringing him disrepute, displeasure in the society and a forbidden act.
7. These tantrums made him forego his duty for which he was born here. He felt that the destiny will operate in case he is justified—written already. He threw his weapons, and remained without action.
8. He was lucky. His theory of G O K (god only knows) was modified by G by issue of a G O in 700 plus counseling, stressing GOK and Arjuna at last O K ed it.
9. Arjun had the authority only to act continuously, without the expectations of the result. What kind of action? Mere acting for the sake? No. Active participation to the best of his ability and right attitude. He has to remain unmindful of the results. He was born to work, act and motivate others to act. Acting without purpose? Acting without aims? Acting without a goal? No. Everyone is born to do his duty-for the purpose for which he is driven to act. That is written according to the karma-balance sheet.
10. When each single cell is splitting, when the five senses are always in actions, how the six senses creature can remain inactive, shifting the blame on fate? It’s not a pep-observation. It’s true. When the human architecture knows that the matter can neither be created nor be destroyed, how the action can result in success or failure of which he is frightened about. Everything existed before and all things will continue to exist and the action can only be progressive and definitely not be vice-versa. How?
11. All actions have equal and opposite reactions, viz reaction is also an action. Matter may change shape; matter can be positive for few and negative in appearance for many. Many positive when totaled remain positive and many negatives end positive ultimately (Maths). Therefore intensified actions would result in positive frames only at the end of the tunnel, only expectations of the fruitions spoil the sport. Ends justify the means.
12. Therefore why should you act or work for the fruition? After all fruition is only a short goal towards long achievements not within the frame work of the human constitution. Set a goal and step forward and be progressive in every step of action. There is no disappointment. All are written but what is written is known only at the end of the tunnel and not before. You are not action but you are a tool to act and the duty of the sthitha pragnan is even though written, does not produce stress. If there be the pain cry –this is another action. In pleasure laugh it away—this is another action. But arise, awake and stop not, that’s what Vivekananda said for the same reason of action. Again like westerner it’s not a pep-writing, YAYEVAM VEDA, it’s true.
13. Deivathar agadeninum muyarchi
Mei varutha cooly tharum. –Tirukkural.
Action not only avoids stress but even assuming that GOD failed to reward, yet the concentrated, focused action, shall be justified appropriately. He also said that those who act non-chalantly and progressively with a purpose may defeat the fate. Gita takes it from multiple Upanishads and they in turn take them from Vedas. Active karma a matter is indestructible, so one need not seek them; active karma changes shape as Karma of the past tied to the soul with which one is born, and continues its travel, as per Karma –which is written already.
14. Hence no one can escape karma at presenti as well as the karma of the past, accounted for, which automatically renders into results of the future, which one has to take by course of action that one shall think and act ,not as kartha-real, but as Kartha-tool. Then there is no stress, strife or stampede. One is on the conveyor belt where action and reaction shall modify into further action and reaction which are Dharmic-results. Belt is not under one’s control but one has to react with the action of the belt.

Why I’d rather be Anna than Arundhati

Why I’d rather be Anna than Arundhati
Posted on August 23, 2011 by Mr. Clarity
Keyar NOTE: Actually it’s an article of righteous path. I had the pleasure of seeing the youth sparkling and the usual methods of Govt crushing out the enthusiasm, in the footsteps of Arundathi, as happened with JP movements long ago. By nature we Indians always lack the tenacity to be bold, within the reasonable level. We compromise on errors even at home, under the pretext of keeping safe and in peace. ALL THE BOLD LETTERS ARE MY (keyartax) observations in that light while always stand for GOOD MOVEMENTS, yet have the reservations unlike Mrs. Arundathi Roy, and chivalrous cong members.
Clarity There was an article in The Hindu today by Arundhati against the movement for Janlokpal, she’s eloquent as usual, and she misses the point, pretty much as usual. In this article I am trying to talk about the points she raised and hopefully when we are done we might have a broader perspective of this movement than what Arundhati has projected.
Keyar As a matter of fact Mr. Ram stood on ANNA, s end and against his old friend P C on the other side. We were in the same college. Hindu is famous for investigative journalism on corruption long ago(Gun scandal). I wonder whether the Janlok pal bill was understood in that good intended prospect, and not under legal frames. Mr. Ram in Times Now elucidated it well. Forget ARoy as she always understood all finer aspects of life perversely &negatively, as a matter of strategy to sell.
Clarity Arundhati’s most important gripe seems to be that the people in the movement are raising slogans like – (a) Vande Mataram (b) Bharat Mata ki jai (c) India is Anna, Anna is India (d) Jai Hindi. Would she prefer if they said (a) India Hai Hai (b) Indian govt murdabad (c) Jeeve-jeeve Pakistan, when they come out on the streets to demand that the Indian government creates a better system for our people?
Keyar She perhaps forgot that slogans are communicative organ to project a unified movement. Her articles feminine contained such coined communications which made her popular in a particular ring. Vande Mataram is prostrating before mother and perhaps she thinks the same thing in English so the impact is not felt.
Clarity She’s lying when she says that the slogans are the answer you get when you ask questions about Janlokpal. The team that’s running Janlokpal has made every attempt to talk to anyone who is concerned about it, and to alleviate all their doubts. For months there was a public referendum on the provisions of Janlokpal, very openly, and lots of provisions were rejected, modified, and adapted according to the inputs of the people. This is a fact, not what Arundhati is saying.
Keyar Janlokpal is questioned by her and alike but did she ever question the lokpal similarly? Moreover leave alone JLP bill---did any one questioned Gandhi at the time of freedom movements or questioned varied issues in our country looked dubious? I am nor trying to stop the freedom of speech but raises an issue of impartial interrogation.JLP is simple---Government procedures shall be executed as intended for the welfare state, without the interference of the Judiciary, unless warranted for----so that INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT AFFECTED WHATEVER THEIR STATUS MAYBE. Honest attempt- as and when the implementations get deviated from the straight path ,we will suitably set it in course. Had people like Arundathi Roy envisaged questioning on various legal measures at the introduction, so many hours of court timings could have been saved as well as more parliament time could havKeyar Janlokpal is questioned by her and alike but did she ever question the lokpal similarly?

Had people like Arundathi Roy envisaged questioning on various legal measures at the introduction, so many hours of court timings could have been saved as well as more parliament time e been saved for other issues without the debate for amendments! Why Hazare alone?
Clarity Even now Anna Hazare and his team has announced that they are open to any public debate on Janlokpal and they will answer all the questions that anyone might have on any issue. Yesterday Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan did just that on a popular television network. There are videos of the team members speaking on different aspects of Janlokpal and why we need them that have been online for months.
Keyar Instead the Govt pretend working suddenly to divert the attention of public by eradicating corruption from Kejariwal, Bushan,reddy etc One thing I have to concur with the public that On Preamble to the constitution (which is root),PEOPLE are supreme ,but there after the Parliament alone is which is indirectly concurred by the oppositions also. A politician is always a politician—except when the side they lean, is a tool to remain a politician. It’s well understood and prays tomorrow, people on this side using the preamble cross the floor. Yet I would say there is no two opinions about implementing JLP. Too many discussions spoil the broth.
Clarity Arundhati, lie one caught.
Her second claim is that Janlokpal seeks an overthrow of the Indian state. Lying again. For almost an year now the Janlokpal team has been working with the government, with all the members who care, to frame a strong law against corruption. They’ve met the current government leaders, opposition leaders, chief ministers, individual MPs, talking to them, and telling them why the country needs a strong anti-corruption framework. Is that working to overthrow the state?
They sat on a very hostile government panel and tried everything they could to push their proposals forward in the way government wanted them to. After the government panel wasted the nation’s time and failed to include even one, repeat, even one important proposal of the Janlokpal bill, and instead sought to push their own Jokepal which would prosecute the victims instead of the perpetrators, they decided to sit on a dharna asking the government to make a strong bill.
Let me remind Arundhati that this was done in a perfectly legal and non-violent manner, and Anna is asking this administration to implement Janlokpal, not seeking a new government. Are you trying to tell the people of India that demanding a strong anti-corruption framework amounts to overthrowing the government? Let us hear that again more clearly.
Keyar She is right in the sense that any major movements had done that damage not by satyagrahis but because of the hard core treatment indulged by the state. Gandhi changed the state; anti-Hindi changed the state; poverty anger had changed the states. So be it and when the ruler forgets the role and become egoistic with the vested interests, episode of Padmasuran shall be there. So don’t worry for expressing the vested interests fear.
Clarity Arundhati, lie two caught.
Next she proceeds to tell us that Anna Hazare is a ‘freshly minted saint,’ which should suggest that he has no right to speak against public injustice as apparently, only stale saints are allowed to crusade for India.
Wait a minute though, this freshly minted thing doesn’t sound true at all. Anna Hazare took voluntary retirement from the Army in 1978 and started his campaign to transform Ralegaon Siddhi. All through the next decade he worked hard for the villagers campaigning for things like liquor prohibition, grain banks for the poor, better milk production, creation of more schools (he sat on a fast for this), against untouchability and for collective marriages. In 1991 he started the Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan. What was Arundhati doing then? Oh wait, she hadn’t written her first book yet.
Anna Hazare has led many movements against corrupt officials and politicians. Powerful people. People who’ve maligned him, filed false cases against him, and even sent him to jail. He has borne the worst of what the powerful and the corrupt have to offer, unlike Arundhati whose only achievement seems to be making radical statements. It’s a shame that someone like her should call a fighter like Anna a ‘freshly minted saint’
Keyar There used to be a truth that when the index finger is stretched, three others are stretched against the accuser. Let there be “freshly minted saint in ANNA, what was Gandhi? Wherefrom Mandela? Was Sui daughter of a general? Everyone has a past and some activities and all those do not count at all. Where the deliverance took place and who measured the time-whether those means justify the end? Alone matter. Few quick markers were/are talking about back-up-finance for the movement, nullifying the movement and bullying the kartha. Is there any free version of the movements in the history from Ramayana periods? ANNA movement had the same resources as GANDHI had and unlike our politicians have! Crowd was not paid one. In the days of independence 33 crore as Poet Bharathi puts it, did not walk on the road or found on the platform, but opinion poll showed how frantic indian people were for this movement viz ANNA. One thing-if its insignificant as Arundathi claim, why talk about it at all? Why?. Because they were shaken, it came from nowhere, a Tsunami not forecasted. So there was fear for survival, fear of forgetting the opium feed, fear of earth giving way and the fear of the fall of the Roman Empire. So it was true. Truth shall be thwarted by rulers and their associates but can the truth ever be erased out? We have to wait and see.
Clarity Arundhati, lie three caught
She is also giving a distorted version of the sequence of events that unfolded during Anna’s stay at the Tihar jail. She’s saying that Anna remained in Tihar as a ‘honored guest’. If you are looking for honored guests Arundhati look for Suresh Kalmadi, Kanimozhi, A Raja, Manu Sharma, or Vikas Yadav, maybe even Afzal Guru. Anna isn’t one of them.
Let me remind you that Anna Hazare was picked up from his residence by the Delhi Police. He hadn’t been on the streets murdering people with a gun the night earlier. He was at Rajghat where he sat for an hour in meditation.
The police sent Anna to Tihar in 7 days judicial custody. To prevent what? A non-violent protest against corruption in India. On 16th August nearly 15,000 people of New Delhi and Mumbai courted arrest. They went to JP Park, Azad Maidan, or whatever the venue was in their city, asking the police to arrest them. They did not burn buses, break glasses, or set fire to homes. I have a photograph of the special jail at Chhatrasal Stadium for you here.

The people brought to Chhatrasal Stadium after their arrest.
The government was counting on their belief that no one would come ahead for Anna, and that they would be able to dispose him the way they disposed Baba Ramdev. Unfortunately for them the people of India had had enough. Anna was made an ‘honored guest’ in your words because of all the people who were in the jail, and outside the jail for him.
Why didn’t Anna come out? Because he was asked to (a) go home, (b) leave town. When Anna Hazare asked whether he would be allowed to hold an unconditional protest the Delhi police refused. Anna said that if they release him he would lead the protest and they would have to arrest him again, so it’s better that he remain in jail until the government agrees to let him protest.
Usually when a protest is organized, the people who run the protest have enough time to make preparations. There has to be enough room, and proper arrangements to make sure that the thousands collected are managed properly and without harm. If Anna had gone to the protest before the arrangements were made it could have resulted in utter chaos that might have had serious repercussions for the people gathered. Do you realize that Arundhati?
She also said that Anna’s team whizzed in-and-out of prison and it is a privilege that no one else has. Anna’s team came out when the individuals chose to be released, and when Anna refused to budge Kiran Bedi and other team members were invited by the government to try and negotiate with Anna. How does that compare to Kalmadi having a nice tea-biscuit brunch with the Warden a few days ago? Or Manu Sharma being surreptitiously paroled? Did you hear about them at all?
Keyar Yes he was treated like an honored guest, no doubt, because it became “NAYAR PUDICHA PULIVAL”(HOLDING THE TIGER BY THE TAIL). Govt had acted and instantly reacted undiplomatically. The govt was caught in a whirlpool or quicksand and unless he goes out, it will have to face all problems. Also no more he was a prisoner and therefore what’s wrong if he was treated like honored guest as well as people were allowed to walk in and out. As a matter fact govt did not use the right to “allow” at all! Team was walking in & out. That is why Tiruvalluar said that
In a nut shell “think before you act”. Someone did not do the exercise properly so he became more honorable than others on that day.
Clarity Arundhati, lie four caught.
Her next claim is that MCD worked hard to prepare the grounds. Is that right? I will bet anybody that Arundhati didn’t go to the grounds to inspect the preparations, and she’s talking out of her head again. I went to the ground and saw the state it was in. Here is a photograph for you Arundhati. Do you see the MCD here? Or do you see young people who are rushing to clean the wet mud, trying desperately but in union, to make the place better than a pigsty so that the people could stand.

They dug a little canal to channel the water from the ground into the drains

She's mopping the carpet so that it may become fit to stand on
Even if they weren’t, and even if MCD had sent all their workers to prepare the grounds for Anna Hazare’s protest, would there still be a reason to complain? What MCD did there was its job. The Ramlila Ground is supposed to be maintained by the MCD for massive gatherings. When MCD doesn’t do its job and the grounds is water-logged and mosquito infested, it creates a serious health hazard for everyone who’s there. MCD prepares the grounds for all public protests too. It did the same for Sonia Gandhi’s rally just a few months ago. Arundhati, you want the MCD to not do its job because this protest is not organized by a political party?
Keyar Yes, is she not giving beauty tips to keep fit and beautiful? Does she not keep her house livable? Had he demanded, may be a big Govt retinue would have done the same job, to get him out of the Tihar---He was graceful to be done by MCD. !!
Clarity Arundhati, lie five caught.
She’s upset that the Lokpal has wide-ranging powers of investigation, surveillance and prosecution, and then she uses her amazing writing skills to suggest that Lokpal will practically have everything except their ‘own prisons’. I am on the verge of losing my breakfast!
Arundhati, one would expect someone who questions the Indian legal system so openly to have better knowledge about it. The police has the powers of (a) investigation, (b) surveillance, and (c) prosecution. So does the CBI. How are Lokpal’s power different? The only thing that Anna is asking for is that the Lokpal be a specialized body against corruption and that it must not need to seek permission from anybody to prosecute a corrupt office holder. Our present system puts severe restrictions on the investigative bodies. That’s why a CBI under the prime minister could not file a charge-sheet against A Raja, but when the supreme court took over the investigations A Raja was brought to jail.
Arundhati, I know that you knowingly did not make the point that the powers of Lokpal are limited to investigation, collection of evidence and prosecution. The Lokpal can bring a case to the court, and the judge will then decide on the basis of the presented evidence whether the person is guilty. How is that radically dangerous?
Keyar SHE KNOWS BUT SHE HAS TO BE A MOUTH PIECE FOR SOMEONE. The Rahul team is also telling the same thing. It was commented that JLP is also another CVC, CBI etc. In reality lokpal is like CBI etc. The politician will usurp the powers of others to prevail over the matter, than allowing someone to walk over them. That’s why JPL is dreaded. No loophole then no encroachment on their powers. They also projected the supremacy of the Parliament to that of People, forgetting the PREAMBLE. If they are correct, it’s better to slay a few wrongly than allowing the escaped of many. Don’t thay say to save a village few people can be sacrificed.
Clarity Arundhati, lie six caught.
It’s really amazing to see how Arundhati Roy can go to ridiculous lengths to fill the reader’s mind with garbage against Janlokpal. If you didn’t know about her problems with the Indian government, you could easily imagine she has been paid by it to write the article. She’s actually suggesting that the hawkers who pay the beat constable to set up their stalls might have to pay the ‘lokpal representative’.
Lokpal representative? Now she can frame those words and hang them on the Red fort for all to see and it still wouldn’t become true. The Lokpal is not a policing body. They can’t go and collect ‘hafta’ from the hawker.
When land-owner’s land is grabbed illegally and a mall is built there, or when a poor person’s store is unjustly removed, or when the beat constables or MCD representatives, or other government agency officials unjustly seek bribes from the people, that is corruption. The Lokpal is built to take care of that.
According to the provisions of the Janlokpal Bill, a citizen can make a complaint against an office holder, and the lokpal will investigate the complaint. If it is found true action will be taken. Lokpal is not going to send beat lokpallers to collect hafta from the poor. That’s downright ridiculous and only a fancy imagination could have conceived it.
Keyar Theme of JLP is expeditious justice for all, for whose sake those, constitutions were framed. Let there be few fall outs , but will there be chillness running around the spinal cord? It’s enough.
Clarity Arundhati, lie seven caught.
She also says that the choreography, and aggressive nationalism seems to be like that of anti-reservation. It’s a clear attempt to draw the dalits away from the fight against corruption. And how inappropriate an attempt it is! It is the deprived, the dalits, who have to the bear the worst of corruption. The rich and the influential are filled with upper caste people who can actually use the present system to their advantage because they have money power, influence, and contacts.
The dalits don’t have the same advantages, that’s why when all other things being equal, it is the dalit who stands to lose when they compete with the upper caste. All due to corruption!
Now coming to the choreography. What sort of vague word is that? ‘Choreography’, what are we supposed to understand from it? If she’s talking about the slogans, we’ve already dealt with that. What else could she be talking about?
The anti-reservation protest was fraught with street violence and self-immolations. The people who opposed reservations closed down schools, colleges and offices, burnt buses, had violent clashes with the law, and burnt themselves to death. That hasn’t happened in Anna’s movement. This movement is perfectly peaceful and organized. Even when people are on a march, they stop at the red lights and crossings to let the traffic pass before continuing. What the hell is Arundhati trying to imply with her ‘Choreography’ then?
Keyar Dalit, reservations etc are political trump cards to use and throw but the base people of >60% ,even after 60 yrs of freedom, had never even see the light at the end of the tunnel. These issues never raised their levels because of corruption only. The main root is corruption at every level, especially in the base level. Politicians may accuse them of having received the money for voting and so they have to be taken back in some shape. But had the dubbavallahs, street vendors, small shoppers etc are allowed their individual freedom within the four corners of the existing law, it not only reduces the other drawbacks like daliths freedom etc, but also allow the law executors to function as per law, which would deter the same community to behave orderly. When discipline returns to the society, dignity of the labor shall be felt. So root cause must be mitigated, if not totally erasable. Then so many other issues of the society will be properly regulated. Among the “n “issues, corruption of all kinds assume importance and the entire world is looking at us, to turn a new leaf. In this respect the juggernaut shall be allowed to be moved, instead of criticizing the magnitude, so that , majority of the other issues will merge in this for solutions without any expectations. In the end there will be paltry issues waiting for the answer. Lets think about them when we cross the bridge. Please don’t upset the apple cart.
Clarity Arundhati, lie eight caught.
The next bit is very cruel. She craftily tries to separate Irom Sharmila, Bastar, Jaitapur, from the fast and implies by extension that Anna Hazare does not oppose Posco, or the farmer deaths in Maharashtra, or any of the other myriad problems that our country is battling right now. This couldn’t be furthest from truth.
Unlike Arundhati, Anna Hazare has recognized that too many of the problems that our country is facing are a direct result of corruption. That’s why a Madhu Koda is able to earn thousands of crores in graft money directly depriving the adivasis. That’s why Yeduyarappa is able to give illegal miners a free hand. That’s why Bastar and Irom, and Niyamgiri exist. Because of corruption.
If our framework made the responsible people accountable, it would create a huge difference in all of these issues. Imagine a bastar free of poachers, miners and land grabbers, a maharashtra village where the government’s benefits schemes are truly implemented. Forget all the other instances, just imagine what Manrega can really do for the people if it is implemented honestly.
You’ve also claimed that Anna doesn’t care about the farmers in Maharashtra, or in other places, even though he has spent his entire demonstratively in fighting for the poor and deprived villagers and farmers. Maybe you didn’t hear about this because you were too busy hobnobbing with India haters.
Arundathi, I believe that fighting corruption is fighting on behalf of all the people you’ve named, and not against them. If you believe otherwise, give me your reasons.
Keyar I explained above elsewhere the same thing. Individual freedoms deliver the fruition of the rights encompassing the duties.
Clarity Arundhati, lie nine caught.
The next slander if of course the ultimate weapon that anyone can hurl at Anna. That he supports Raj Thackarey or Narendra Modi’s alleged wrongdoings. This is a joke, specially in sight of the fact that many of the hardliners aligned with the BJP, the hindu-brigade, and Narendra Modi are up with cudgles against Anna Hazare. They’re making the claim that Anna Hazare is an agent of Congress, propped up by Congress to facilitate the crowning of Rahul Gandhi.
The communists have no love for Hazare, the right wingers have no love for Hazare, and the Congress has no love for Hazare. My God! He must be awesomely right!
Answering your gripe, Anna Hazare has said it publicly multiple times that he is against any oppressive actions targeted against any community and that he supports a system that gives equal rights to all citizens irrespective of their religion.
And if you think you were succeeding in your nefarious scheme to distance the muslims from the movement, you’ve failed. Muslims as a community have lent their support to Anna Hazare in a massive way. Many Imams and Maulavis have made public statements, and the Dar-ul-Uloom, which is the biggest body of Muslims in India has said that it is the duty of every Muslim and citizen of India to support Anna Hazare. If they are wrong, then you must know something that they don’t. Care to share?
You’ve also brought the ‘Youth for equality’ into this. So what if Anna’s movement is supported by the Youth for Equality? It is also supported by the All India Youth Federation. Let me show you a pic of AIYF activists who marched against corruption for Anna. Lest you’ve forgotten the AIYF is the youth wing of the Communist Party of India.

They supported Anna because they want a corruption free India
Do you realize that when it comes to this fight against corruption Anna does not choose who supports him. He gratefully accepts their support. Of course he doesn’t give them anything in return except a law that’s strongly against corruption.
That’s why the Gyan Das Akhara of Ayodhya, and Hashim Ansari, the famous anti-temple litigator have jointly expressed support for Anna Hazare. Do you have the courage to rise above your own pettiness?
Keyar Every problem has a solution. So every act will have a reaction. In a movement, the cause and effect are not the wishes of the Karma yogi. In the midst of storage of water in a dam, many trees could be felled. No one can say all floods are intended only to fell the tree. Karmanyevadikaraste Ma Paleshu Katakana, since good things will have stiff opposition but all good things will not deliver any wrong babies.
Clarity Arundhati, lie ten caught.
You are also very misinformed, or maybe you choose to present wrong information to the people. You have said that ‘Kabir’ is an NGO run by Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia. Actually Arvind Kejriwal does not run Kabir. He is an executive member because Manish Sisodia is an old associate from Parivartan, but he does not manage it, or intervene in it. It is managed by Manish Sisodia. Arvind Kejriwal’s foundation is the PCRF. They have received no donation from Ford. Their balance sheets are available on their website for public inspection. Have a look at all the money this foundation has.
Arvind started this foundation with 14 lakhs, the money he got with his Magsaysay Award. He used it for public cause and to support RTI in India.
The PCRF maintains complete accounts for the present anti-corruption movement too. Details of all incoming donations are available on the website of India Against Corruption, and expenses are detailed too. You should have a look at that.
The amount Kabir has received as donation from Ford is $200,00 and not $400,000 as you claimed. This is verifyable form the website of the ford foundation ( You could have done well to note that this donation has nothing to do with the present movement, but you did not. I will do this for you here. This donation was made in 2011 to Kabir to promote the use of RTI in India, and not to support the India against corruption movement.
1 Keyar Genuine ACTIONS can be questioned viz Individual freedom under the constitution really. Genuine Individual or trust or any organization will never be bothered since THAN NENJARIVADU POYYARKKA” (LET YOUR CONSCIOUS BE CLEAR), HENCE THOSE WHO HARASS WILL FACE THE CONSEQUENCES.
2 There was a program in Tamil TV (VIJAY), on this issue recently. Mr. Gopinath presented and questioned the versions of Arundathi but never presented these answers at all. Why?
3 So many writers, social workers and cross section of the society focus their thinking, only with reference to their goal and I that process, demand greater focus of their issue or demand attention for their cause only. In this process, they miss the Root-cause of the problem and weigh with reference to the nationality, statehood, caste, creed, sufferings of a sectional tribe etc.
4 Progress of a cross section may be important but not at others cost. Its said that even at the cost of losing your mother, never commit to wrong doings. If the country progress as Indian, and where the mind is without fear, issues remaining unsolved for decades ,remaining unsupported, shall get the positive answer, without detriment to the neighbour. At the root such things can happen only when corruption of every kind is reduced, to function ethically. SHE KNOWS BUT PRETENDS.
Clarity Arundhati, lie eleven caught.
You say next that the present bill fails to bring the corporates and the NGOs against the ambit of Lokpal. Does our present legal system allow that? Does our present legal system allow surveillance of the functioning of privately funded NGOs or corporate bodies in the same manner that it allows the surveillance of government organisations? The legal experts have said no, and this is the reason according to the team that they are not proposing this at the present time.
What you’ve forgotten is the fact that it is the government system that’s the worst offender when it comes to corruption, because it allows its misuse by the private sector resulting in the problems you’ve mentioned. There are already checks and systems to prevent and prosecute the wrong-doings of the private sector, but they are compromised because the investigative bodies are in the graft, or their masters are.
If we can make this start by creating a law that forces the government systems to work properly it will undoubtedly lead to better handling of the private sector too. Can you imagine the telecom companies benefiting from 2G the way they did if they didn’t have A Raja working for them? Or the various private companies making huge profits from CWG tenders if Kalmadi and Sheila Dikshit didn’t back them so brazenly?
Anna’s team has given the commitment to keep fighting, to further the cause, and take fresh measures to rid the people of corruption once the Janlokpal bill is in place. By making the Janlokpal bill an excuse to talk about all the different malaise we have you are attempting to short-circuit the anti-corruption drive itself. How is fighting government corruption any less holier than fighting corruption in private organisations?
Keyar When the society functions normally, without fear or favor, sub-roots corruptions will vanish in the thin air as there may not be God-fathers. On the contrary as I said elsewhere, when the Juggernaut moves, there is always room for improvements, since whatever is added for functional norm, may have the same repercussions. The proof of pudding is in the eating. But Arundathi and Co, never allow the stove to burn!
Clarity Arundhati, lie twelve caught.
The only sense you are making is in the last paragraph when you say that Anna’s movement is the result of the failure of the legislature which is filled with criminals and millionaire politicians who have ceased to represent their people. You know, that’s exactly the point that Anna Hazare has been making. Our MPs are totally living in denial of the people’s needs and aspirations. They believe that 9% growth of GDP is an achievement worth having 11% food inflation for. It is their corrupt mindset and disconnect which must be challenged, and that’s exactly what Anna is doing when he mobilizes people in such a massive manner against corruption. The fact is, we should all be thankful to Anna Hazare for reminding the MPs that a democracy is not just made up of the parliament, but also of the people.
Keyar I told you. Everyone knows. However main stream fear for their status which may be dismantled. There is Karnan of Mahabharatha, who has to work for the salt. So Many so forth. In spite of all these things of pros and cons, will of the people shall prevail only if the people keep awake whatever the circumstances. Arise awake and stop not and god bless the country and the people.

There are more and more things on heaven and earth,Horatio

There are more and more things on heaven and earth,Horatio

I am quite busy with my AASTHIKA ANALYSIS A SEARCH, within myself,without fear or favour and so I could not spare time for creation of fresh blogs.
I just saw a comment from an INCOGNITO,about which I thought fit to say a few words.The important extrat from the man behind the mask, is extracted below, which would show how an hypocrite he could be.
“ very strange....Shakatapuram is one of the ancient mutts in Karnataka..yes its indeed Totakacharya's Mutt ,well my family follows Kanchi Mutt and my extended family follows Sringeri from ages..and all the shankarachraya mutt's and great kings have acknowledged this mutt and this mutt was also visited by both the Shankrachrays as well..the complaints that u have mentioned is totally false and i guess u wrote this blog with some vengeance in mind...If you don't know please SHUTUP..
..its Maha paap...Shakatapuram is one of the great mutt's ,...I pray may God bless you with Wisdom and i will sincerely request you to beg for forgiveness in the Holy feet of the JagadGuru..He will surely forgive you...He is a Karunamoorthy.
By Anonymous on LESSONS OF SHAKATAPURAM on 5/17/11”

There are only 2 ways of viewing things positive and negative; neutral is a n unique category, rare. Ouvaiyar said that Jadhi Irandozhiya varillai……..Ittar periyor Idathar…Izhikulathor..Patangillullapadi”. In Gita Krishna ,depicts HIMSELF AS either extremes. So also there are AASTHIKA AND NAASTHIKA . Its lead to believe that the denial of god and or non-acceptance is NAASTHIKA. NO!
Non learning of the back up literatures in detail and out of such ignorance weakly following a tribe without knowledge, however big the society may be , are NAASTHIKAS only. Atleast in the former there is convincing denial,rather an atheist read everything and later getting convinced ,which is acceptable. But in the latter, there is nothing but fawning and Greed, self protection and selfishness,belief because of return and fear Psychosis,and such of those are Naasthikas out of ignorance and make a personal property religion a commercial property. TO DAY THE WHOLE WORLD IS FACING THIS AND IT’S A SURPRISE THAT A COUNTRY WHICH PRAYED FOR SARVE JANA SIKINO BHAVANTHU, VIZ INDIA, RUNNIONG AFTER, VARIED ROBES FOR STAYING IN A SOCIAL COMMUNITY TO PLAN THEIR LIVELYHOOD, FOR GREED ,HIGH STRATA PRESERVATION AND ANDTO STAY FAR ABOVE OTHERS PUSHING THEM DOWN. \
No one could remember that
Those who sing their song for attaining the wealth of this world,fail to see unearthing of or hoarding of crores and tons in their suit, contributed by the ignorant. IMMAIKKUM ENAI MARUMAIKKUM THATHAM KARUMAME KATTALAIKKAL. TIRUVALLUAR wrote the VEDAM AND UPANISHADS in Tamil. HE IS A BRAHMIN. One who understood the brahman is BRAHMIN and not by birth. If you look at Itihasas, PEOPLE RESPECDTED THE RESPECTABLE AND NO CROWD FLOCKED THEVASHISHTA, BHARADWAJA ,KASYAPA OR ANY RISHIS WHO WERE RETIRING IN VANA VASA.Sanyasi came to visit the grahasthas and not the vice versa.
Kanchi mutt is wealthy bur Acharyas are sitting in viewaqble simple rooms. Sringeri is very rich but Acharyals stay simple and do pujas for the welfare of the people in the universe. Sringeri denied the costly car presented by the ardent devotee,recently,and said his needs are simple. There are no evidences to showwhether the Thodakacharyar came down here and established a mutt,since HE was destined to take care of one mutt established by the ADI SANKARA and such deciple who did only one sloka on his guru and nothing else ,would have derelited his post defying the words of Guru. There are 296 Sankaracharyas of eka and thritandi,self styled are many. Ihave great respedt for sanyasi and do pranams who practice Gnanayoga and lead a life of simplicity. Even before Sringeri were there ancient mutts now remaining unheard of dilapidated. VIDYARANYAR REVIVED THE Sringeri and other Mutts of Karnataka making, the HARIHARA PUKKA the doyen.
If you consider various puranasof yester years there are so many spots enshrined as spots of the visits of Ramayana characters. In south its many. However SriRama was born near Afganisthan and North of Ganga River, when the Bharatha was called JAMBUDDWEEPAM; the land surrounded by seas. There was this nation without Himalaya at one time. Even to day SriLanka has scriptures and inscriptions showing Rama visit. However there are other theories also that present Srilanka position was not the original geo position. Lord Rama was 64 feet tall as Ramayana deciphers it. So History were true but when chatur yuga have to be considered, todays AFRICA, AUSTRALIA, SRILANKA POSITION OF INDIA ETC ARE SPLITTERS FROM JAMBUDWEEPAM AND THE CRASH CREATED THE HIMALAYA. Rig veda never speaks about Himalaya at all where those people lived , created the verse and recited. In so many places Vamana Avatara is repeated but not earlier or later ones. The current fear of self-preservations existed in Rig veda period where people worshipped the elements which hit them ,so do now such people who do say papam, etc,forgetting for a moment what do they contribute for the welfare of the society.
In short, in my opinion AASTHIKA is one who reads and understands the scriptures, raise their standards in Dharmic way with yoga preached by such scriptures. KARPAVAI KATRAPIN NIRKA ATHARKU THAGA.Not running behind for self preservations. Respect the elders but never over react. What is the use if one goes behind religious fads without attending to their PARENTS OR DAILY DHARMAMS? What is the use if women runabout uncalled for rituals and swamiji8s, without attending to their husbands, and family and disrespecting their house hold women. ? Every act of the human being is to search and find out the truth and stick to their conduct of Dharmic profession,elicit from anyone the Hindu Way of life universally, and not to become the model of the HERDS INSTINCT.

DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam's Speech in Hyderabad
Why is the media here so negative?
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse acknowledge them---Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit.
There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters.
I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.
In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.
Why are we so NEGATIVE?
Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign T. Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology.

Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance? I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture,when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed India . For her, you and I will have to build this developed India . You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation.
Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.
Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours.
YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke,
The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.
YOU say, say and say.. What do YOU do about it?

Take a person on his way to Singapore . Give him a name - YOURS. Give him aface - YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International best.
In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground links as they are. You pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road ) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity... In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU?
YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai .
YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah .
YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds ( Rs.650) a month to, 'see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else.'
YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop,'Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucks and get lost.'
YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand
Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo ? Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston ??? We are still talking of the same YOU..

YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the same here in India ?
Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay , Mr. Tinaikar , had a point to make. 'Rich people's dogs are walked on the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,' he said. 'And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect the
officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels? In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan . Will the Indian citizen do that here?' He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility.
We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin.
We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms.
We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity.
This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public. When it comes to burning social issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse?
'It's the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my sons' rights to a dowry.' So who's going to change the system? What does a system consist of ? Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbor's, other households, other cities, other communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU.
When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away. Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England . When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out
to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.

Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a greatdeal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too.... I am echoing J. F. Kennedy 's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians.....
Lets do what India needs from us.
Forward this mail to each Indian for a change instead of sending Jokes or junk mails.
Thank you,
Dr. Abdul Kalaam

Dear all
I do respect the scientist Sri Abdul Kalam and HE HAS ALL THE QUALIFICATIONS TO UTTER THE REMARKS, OBSERVATIONS AND THE TRUTH OF THE COUNTRY. HE IS A GOOD SOUL, BUT NEVER HAD ANY COMMITMENTS IN HIS LIFE; HE NEED NOT LIVE EVEN FOR HIMSELF AND IF SO, HIS CHASTITY CANNOT BE TESTED. The greatness lie when one inspire of the best opportunity to take on things or to get molested, remain virtuous without giving room for the temptations. APJ Has never been eulogized when he was in Mumbai but only when he became the 1st citizen of the country with the help of media, as he was useful ; however APJ was/is /will be APJ. I do respect him and appreciate his greatness, also because he was also my boss for few years, though I don’t know him.
All things are clear in his statement and the accusers are prosecuted as the accused, which may be partly true,. Never there was any analysis of the reasons. Will people entirely turn hostile? NO. Of course he did not pronounce any accusations’ as others, but what he could do to mitigate, even if not able to annihilate when he was in power? Nothing, maybe he applied some brakes but in India , there is no birth right of the freedom to do good things and remain good with all the status and the facilities. THE REAL MINORITY IS ONE WHO FORMS A GROUP TO SUFFER SILENT FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH.
Did he discuss about this cause? Majority remain hen- pecked to the system of fawning, frolicking, funding, to attain their goals; creed and greed to jump over for the sake of the vested interests, rules the roost; political thriving in all walks of life remain a desired principle rather than the Dharmic codes; WHEN DESIRE IS THE DELIQUENT, THE DEMON SHALL DIRECT THE DISCIPL9INE OF THE DICTATED MODE. All the malais was/is for the pleasure of the few and the few in the balance who cannot toe the path get perished while the rest scratch others back to live shamelessly. The majority accusers may be as observed by APJ, but the real accusers who live like APJ has the right to vent in air as they have the axe to grind, unlike APJ, and all their contributions as required By APJ wont tilt even the mole hill out of the Mountain, as APJ was in power. THIS COMMUNITY IS CORRECT.
The reward and the punishment must not only be severe, like other countries but also enforced without any kind of intrusions, CAN IT BE ACHIEVED? One does not throw in Singapore because the punishment is unequivocal. One is afraid of the fate of Mr. Clinton which is not a case in 2G spectrum country. In India the corporal punishment is hardly 7 to 8 years for murder except the Ceylon lady and while the rapist will rape, go to jail, come back marry and liove while the raped will remain passive for 37 years. BHARATHI said "pinam thinnum chathirangal".
So the observations of the great soul is not universal for India and it’s also a kind of PAIN PROCESSED PUBLIC STATEMENT and I wish it could become true in future but not as of today.

Remember when you failed an examination. How many people recall that,
your class, friends, relatives? You failed to make it to the IITs or
IIMs. Who remembers. How many times have you had the feeling of being
the best in your class, school , university, state….., you failed to
get a visa stamped this quarter…, you missed a promotion this year…,
how did it feel when you dad told you in your early twenties that you
are good for nothing…..and now your boss tell you the same...
You keep introspecting and go into a shell when people most of whom
don’t matter a dime in your life criticize you, back bite you, make
fun of you. You are left sad and shattered and you cry when your own
kin scoffs at you. You say I am feeling low today. It takes a lot from
us to come out of these everyday situations and move on. A lot???
Now here’s a man standing on the third man boundary in the last over
of a world cup match. The bowler just has to bowl sensibly to win this
game. What the man at the boundary sees is 4 rank bad bowls bowled
without any sense of focus, planning or regret. India loses, yet again
in those circumstances when he has done just about everything right.
He does not cry. Does not show any emotion. Just keeps his head down
and leaves the field. He has seen these failures for 22 years now. And
not just his class, relatives, friends but the whole world has seen
these failures. We are too immature to even imagine what goes on in
that mind and heart of his. That’s why I would never want to be
True, he has single handedly lifted to moods of this entire nation
umpteen number of times. He has been an inspiration to rise above our
mediocrity. Nobody who has ever lifted the willow even comes close to
this man’s genius. His dedication and metal strength is unparallel.
This is specially for those people who would have made fun of him
again last night when India lost. They are people who are mediocre in
their own lives. Who just scoff at others to create cheap fun. Who
have lived in a small hole throughout their lives and thought they
have seen the oceans.
Think about the man himself. He is 37 years of age. He has been
playing almost non stop for 22 years. The way he was running and
diving around the field last night would have put 22 year olds to
shame. The way he played the best opening quickies in the world was
breathtaking. He just keeps getting better which is by the way humanly
impossible. Its not for nothing that people call him GOD.
But still I don’t want to be in those shoes. We struggle in keeping
our monotonous lives straight, lives which affect a limited number of
people. Imagine what would be the magnitude of the inner struggle for
him, pain both mental and physical, tears that have frozen with time,
knees and ankles and every other joint in the body that is either
bandaged or needs to be attended to every night, eyes that don’t sleep
before a big game, bats that have scored 99 international tons and
still see expectations from a billion people.
And he just converts those expectations into reality. We watch in awe,
feel privileged.
Well I think its time that his team realizes that enough is enough.
They have an obligation, not towards their country alone but towards
sachin. They need to win this one for him. Stay assured that he
himself will still deliver and leave no stone unturned to make sure
India wins this cup.
This is not just a game, and he is not just a sportsman. Its much more
than this. Words fail here.....

Dear all
The comment of HArsha Bogle is understandable and cannot be termed as incorrect. He had justified his livelihood. However, everyone is born to do something as his karma and runs thro the occupational hazards. All actions are performed in 9 out of 10 cases ONLY FOR PECUNIARY BENEFITS. All deeds are equal and the periodic era people think that one particular thing is greater achievement even though there are so many achievements done every day without being noticed or ignored even having noticed. In king periods it was fighting, in Vedic era it was recitals, and so on so forth. Now cinema and games which were termed as "koothadigal" once. I am not undermining anything but I am not prepared to to create a superman image for things carried out for money. When I wrote in “Thendral”, USA about the eulogism on writer Sujatha (Rangarajan) there were hues and cries, but now how many are after the eulogism? They are PALESHU KATHACHANA KARMAS, it deserves to appreciate and there the matter ends. Our people including educated turn mad without reason and that’s INDIA. DO WE REMEMBER AND LAUD SIR C V RAMAN, ADISANKARA, GANDHI, VEDA VYASA, THERESA, PONDY ANNAI, RAMAKRISHNA PARAMAHAMSA? Sachin is smart but only a speck before all such. Let us appr4eciate and criticize and leave at it .
