Moody's Modi

Still in Shimla and today Respected Friend , a Retired Senior Bureaucrat,  and me ...we meet at Baljis and over piping hot idlis dipped in Sambar and desi espresso coffees (nescafe+milk frothed)..we get chatting.

Me: What is the actual meaning of Secularism..

Respected Friend:  Well actually it meant the Government and Church would not lean on each other.. but Congress here warped it to shameless appeasement..

M: And BJP has given it a fair meaning ...Sabh ka Saath sabh ka Vikaas... now its being said the Aloo to Gold clip was edited  ...actually RaGa was taunting Modi ...that only he can promise such things..

RF: Actually it backfired on RaGa....one ...he had already made a ludicrous Aloo ke Chips comment in Amethi some time back... and people don't expect such lose talk from Modi....

M: People had a field day mocking RaGa and if you ask me he deserves it...he should understand that one of the many aspects why Indians respect Modi ....his maturity ...

RF: The PEW Research Org has said as per their survey Modi is adored by majority of Indians....

M: Anti Modi lot saying sample was too shallow..

RF: PEW is unbaised ...and sample was scientifically chosen... of course  the anti Modi lot will damn this survey....baised comments on an unbaised survey...

M: RaGa is now questioning the Raffael Deal..

RF: Ha ha.... very much like Gabbar terming the hard work of Villagers as Dacoity... or like they say .....choro ko sabh nazar aathe hai chor... do I need to spell out the Choris during UPA and earler ones like Bofors...

M: And France has rejected Congress's charge and Reliance Defence Limited has threatened to sue Congress..

RF: Doesn't it strike you... Congres was silent till now... and now its cooked up this charge... time it with Gujarat Election... because in Gujarat the Public....like in rest of India ......feel Modi is incorruptible....but Gujarat is special ....

M: As usual once Gujarat election is over Congress will shut up on this issue...

RF: SOP for Congress....

M: Moody has upgraded India's credit rating after 14 years....

RF: Expect anti Modi lot to question Moody's process of rating...or say Moody's is Modi's... SOP..

M: The Stock Market has responded very positively...

RF: SOP....what is Congress's SOP when grave charges are made against Congress and its Owners...

M: Silence ..... their usual reps don't go for debates on News Shows ...they wait for Public attention to shift...

RF: SOP.... Silence Of the Peccant ( those who have sinned).....


We settle the tab and move out laughing ...

Survey – Who can revive the Congress ? 

Congress revival hinges on Nehru Gandhi family

The Congress, run by the Nehru-Gandhis as a dynastic behemoth, is facing a leadership crisis like never before. The fears that the party may fragment without a dynastic head also cannot be discounted as only a member of Nehru Gandhi family can bring ‘Some Unity among Congress leaders’ so vital for the revival of the Congress.

Looking at the present state the Congress party is in, Whispersinthecorridors.com tried to elicit the views of its surfers on – Who can revive the Congress ? – and though different people had different opinion and gave the names of several leaders other than those from the Nehru-Gandhi family, one thing which majority of them felt was that UNITY was the first requirement for the revival of the Congress.

And since Unity among Congress leaders - which alone can turn the tables in the next elections - will be totally extinct in the absence of a ‘Gandhi’, only a member of Nehru Gandhi family can revive the Congress party.

Open letter to the Chief Ministers of Northern states

Respected Madam/ Sir,

As is well known, air pollution has become a menace all over northern India. Delhi has been in the news for the deadly smog that has engulfed it for the past few days. However, high pollution is common and endemic in all the north Indian states, including UP, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan etc., especially in the cities and even most smaller towns. The effects of severe air pollution on the health of children, the elderly and those whose immunity is compromised are being felt all over these states. However, the lasting consequences and morbidity due to heavy air pollution cannot be lost sight of. It is time that steps are taken to ameliorate the situation. One major problem is the lack of awareness amongst the general public of these states which continues to burn plastic waste, tyres, garbage, municipal waste, leaves, crop stubble, etc. without any thought of consequences on even their own health. State governments across India can act as leaders in efforts to reduce air pollution and the attendant hazards. They can even make such efforts part of the political discourse and make their initiatives in this regard part of their election efforts. Kindly take some action in this regard.

The list of CGHS creditors to be put on website

The appellant sought detailed list of sundry creditors to each Private hospital (such as Medanta, Artemis, Fortis, Max, Paras etc) and the Government Owned Hospitals within the NCR region. The PIO informed that there are 390 CGHS empanelled institutions & Hospitals in Delhi. Earlier, due to heavy workload coupled with budgetary constraints, there used to be delay of around one year in settlement of claims of CGHS & empanelled hospitals which has dropped to around 3-4 months. The Commission directed the respondent to make proactive disclosure regarding the institutional creditors of CGHS & amounts due towards each of them.
A large number of government servants have complained of delay in reimbursement of the expenses incurred on their treatment. Many private hospitals had refused to be a part of the panel of hospitals approved by the Ministry of Health & family welfare where the government employees could take treatment. Hopefully, the public display of the list of creditors would expedite the payment of pending dues.
