Achchayee ka abh boll baala
Tabh Chor sharre aam firte theh!!
Choro se imaandaar ghirte theh!!
Tabh millta tha choro ko Oopar se saath!
Tabh imaandari ko padthi thi laath!!

Abh yeh nahi hotha!!
Abh imaandar nahi rotha!!
Abh loota Dhan choro se lootne ki hai baari!!
Choro mein machchi hai maara maari!!

SIT pehle abh waale leh aaye!!
Chor sabh ke saamne karr bhi na sakke hai!
Abh videsh mein rakhe kaale dhan,
Sarkaar gher rahi hai dhan dhana dhan!

Badlaaw ki aandhi aayi!!
Desh ki pragati leh aayi!!
Abh Sickular lagaa rahe hai full zorr!!
Kaise rokhe yeh Naya Daur!!

* Paase sabhi ulat gaye Choro ki chaal ke
Choro ne rakhe theh aur chor paal ke
Manzil ki aur chall padha Mulk iss balaa ko taal ke
Sadiyon ke baad phir udhe badal gulal ke

Parwaane laaye theh tufaan se kashti nikal ke
Sickulars ne dubha hee di thi kishti wapas toofan mein daal ke
Iss Desh ko rakhna mere bachcho sambhal ke
Tum ho bhavishya mere Bharat vishal ke
Iss Kishti ko rakhna mere bachcho sambhal ke


Dekho kahin barbaad na hoye yeh bageecha
Isko hriday ke khoon se Bapu ne tha seencha
Rakha tha ye chirag Shaheedon ne baal ke
Iss desh ko rakhna mere bachcho sambhal ke
Parwaane laaye hain tufaan se kashti nikal ke
Iss desh ko rakhna mere bachcho sambhal ke
* Iss Desh ko rakhna merre bachcho sambhal ke

Mindless Development

Rs 48,000+9,800 Crore for smart cities Project?
Is it money or confetti the government is splurging!
Repairing cities that are beyond repairs,beyond recovery,
It seems money is growing on trees in this Bhram-rajya//
Smart cities for Lombarginy, Ferrari and Homer Blue,
What will happen to slums and shanties,they have no clue//
RSS's Bhagwat rightly distinguished India from Bharat,
Villages, hamlets and towns is the real Bharat, While
India consists of lavish malls,Saloons and multi-plexes//
Farmers, labourers and villagers are not in the reckoning
only the foreign direct investors are in the beckoning//
The exercise reminds me of the movie Shri 420 of yore
Achhe Din are here for the haves for sure//

All not well in MOS & PI
Tatha Raja Tatha Praja - this adage fits rightly on MOS&PI. There is a need to have a strong IAS administrator as Secretary-cum- CSI, from outside to rein in wayward subordinates.

No leave for 158 trainee IAS officers-An update

Due to 90 days attachment of 158 IAS with central ministries, all allotments in guest houses and hostels, have been frozen in Delhi for three months effective September, October and November 2015. The suites will not be available for marriage and other private functions to serving government functionaries in Delhi during the period.
Meanwhile, officers of IPS and Indian Forest Service are miffed at the differential treatment to IAS officers.

CGHS functioning

There have been a series of complaints against the functioning of Central Government Health Scheme in WIC by many of its beneficiaries. Obviously there is no one bothering about it. Instead of improving, things are going from bad to worse. I give two recent examples from personal experience. In the CGHS Wellness Centre (Actually it is an illness centre) on Zakir Hussain Marg the specialist is scheduled to come once a week on every Friday. If you want to put your name in the register for consultation with the specialist you would be given a date almost after three Fridays since earlier Fridays already have the required number of 40 people. The Specialist sits from 9 a.m to 1p.m. Imagine her seeing 40 patients in four hours i.e 6 min for a patient. Anyway, we registered our name somewhere in the first week of July and were given the date of 14th August. After waiting for more than a month you leave your home early without breakfast even to be early in the queue. On reaching the dispensary you are told that the Specialist was not coming as she had been put on duty at PM house. It has always been like this and sometimes she is on duty at PM house during UPA Government also for more than two months depriving CGHS beneficiaries of urgent consultation. When asked why they did not inform the people registered for that day many of them retirees and old, the staff at CGHS pointed towards a notice put up by them. As if one would make a trip to the dispensary to see the notice!
Now since Specialist is not available and consultation on some acute health problem cannot wait, one goes to the specialist in the nearest approved hospital, pays the consultation fee and gets the necessary advice. The doctor prescribes the medicines. Next day you make another trip to at least get the medicine which is one's right as a beneficiary. The doctor refuses to dispense these medicines since the same according to him are prescribed by a "private doctor". What to do ? Your own specialist is not available to you. The prescription by the doctor in the approved hospital is not accepted by the CGHS doctors. Is there anyone looking into this mess which CGHS has become? Those handling the health ministry, the babus and the minister appear to be thoroughly incapable of handling their work. We had hoped that with change in the political set 'achhe din' will dawn for senior citizens who are pensioners now but we are facing 'bure din 'instead.

Merge smaller units with big PSUs

Agree with Suyas opinion that with eight companies under its administrative control, Steel Ministry must start working on merging smaller units with bigger PSUs. With currency devaluation in China, they may start selling their steel in India at almost 25% lesser cost than what our PSUs. Input cost on raw materials and administrative expenses needed to be controlled, 5* and 4* facilities must go. Top heavy PSU's are main cause of cost escalation and we haven't been able to compete with global steel majors. Iron ore mines need to rationally allotted to steel makers, technology to be upgraded, expansion projects need to be implemented within fixed time frame.

Good selection

First of all I would like to congratulate you on your selection. A well deserving person.

DATE WITH RTI

Repeated RTI application and appeal on the same issue

The appellant sought for action taken report on the letter dated 30.4.2013 & 1.5.2013, whether HOD enquired about Sunil Kumar, how long he remained in jail, what information has been sought by Tibbia College from central jail no. 6 about Sunil Kumar etc. Having received no reply, the appellant filed first appeal. In the first appeal, the authority mentioned in his order that applicant was a regular compulsive applicant and has submitted more than 150 RTI applications, leading to wastage of government time and efforts. Before the CIC, the PIO submitted that the appellant has so far filed more than 200 RTI applications against Mr. Sunil Kumar. The appellant had also approached the CIC 05 times and CIC had declared him as abuser of RTI. The CIC rejected the appeal as being repetitive.

Comments

Many Public Information Officers come across a situation where a disgruntled employee or a compulsive RTI applicant files application over and over again on a similar issue. This order provides a panacea for such cases.
