Cheeni kumm...

Chance meeting with Lootens 2nd rung Member......

Me: Can a MP make blasphemous statements in either house ....saying he had read/heard this some time back...this is no proof...

Lootens Guy: Ahaa... I see nothing wrong in this ... if this person belongs to the religion he is speaking about ....he's a stakeholder ...isn't  he....

M: So tomorrow if a Muslim BJP Leader makes similar comments against Islam ..

LG: Let's get real....no hypothetical questions ...

M:  In all Faiths there are 'faithless cynics' ... so is this a Carte Blanche to them ... fire at will..

LG: Free Speech has to prevail in both Houses.. .

M: And it does ..only it's not unbridled.... there are House Rules...you cannot be sued for what you say in Parliament ...but House can take action if you flout House Rules...

LG: Privacy and Free Speech are hallmarks of a free and fair Society...

M: And Society too has self set limits ...you cross limits and Society has built in remedial ways to counter you...Congress can have its own Rules when it comes to the Party.. these Rules not applicable on Nation..

LG: Can you expand on this ..

M: A Congi cannot Question Gandhi Family ... their Authority and Privacy are sacred for Congis ...not so when it comes to the Nation...like we question RaGa's frequent overseas trips!

LG: Modi too travels frequently!

M: But his are visits as PM ..well documented and every expense is accounted for ...if Modi goes to meet his Mom ..its for a Photo Op... if RaGa says he's going to meet his Grandma and later you come to know it's to celebrate his birthday...you guys respond with..Respect his Privacy..

LG: Aap logh nahi samjho ge....one's soul has to be 100 % free to understand this..

M: Freedom does not come in percentages ...its 100% or you are not free...and People who work on someone's directions be it voluntarily or on payment are not free!!!

LG: Oof .....Sanghis can never understand this Freedom phenomena ...

M: Ha ha... SOP of you guys..when no answer ...call the other person a Sanghi ... nothing new...

LG: See how the China standoff has been mishandled!

M: China ... the Bully in this Region was taken aback when India said no to it... India's stand is principled... China is uncomfortable with an India that is transforming for the better ... it was very comfy with India of the Congress and UPA days....corrupt to the core ..... stuck in the mud ..... riddled with Pseudoism.....

LG: But we are no match for their military might...

M: So we roll over to their aggressiveness.... it's all posturing .....even a limited war is not a possibility....... its might is well known .....its use of might would make US and Russia very wary and both could take measures to stunt its might .....by stunting it economically ...chain reactions .....it'll realise Tirade and Trade are inversely proportional..

LG: Modi will be tripped by China ...

M: So this is your hope ... somehow Modi is tripped

..... like they say ... From the deepest desires often comes the deadliest hate ...don't we know the desire of the Opposition and the desires of the Lootens lot...they see a Power famine looming and this has got all 'stakeholders' desperate.......and what Pak is for us we are for China ...when it comes to Milatary Might ...but despite the worst kind of provocation...have we attacked Pakistan..no... Nuclear Powers going to war is more like an impossibility..and our differences with China are nothing compared to our differences with Pak..

The Looten's guy mumbles some excuse and walks away.

Friendship culture among batchmates on the wane

It is because the culture of 'me first' has taken over all other things. Actually there is a unhealthy competition so much so that no body thinks twice before pulling the leg of his batch mate if he comes in the way.

 

 

China Threatens War On India?

China is putting undue pressure on India by creating border disputes only because it’s so called economic cooperation in the form of CPEC looks like devastated by India not joining it. Why should India join a project of military hegemony of China in the region? The Chinese communists have converted into plutocrats, aristocrats and elites controlling not only the entire wealth of China but also the means of production, supply & distribution, incomes and livelihood. China has failed to improve the economic conditions of the ordinary Chinese, who are forced to work in sweat shops to produce export goods at wages below 1 US $ a day, but promises economic prosperity to countries signing up CPEC or OBOR. China is no global welfare state. It seeks to realize its economic goals through OBOR/CPEC. The grand projects are to silence the domestic clamour for democracy, human rights, fundamental rights, decent wages and non-military opportunities of livelihood. Currently they are suppressed. The day the real picture of the economic, educational, health and social conditions of the peasants and the labourers become known, the real picture of poverty and deprivation will expose the hollow claims of the revolution. Like the appeal made openly to Pakistanis to dethrone Modi, China has been approached secretly to check the rise of Modi and ensure his fall before 2019. The secret agents in contact with China have been promised return to power in 2019 in exchange for vast tracts of Indian territory and clearance to CPEC and other Chinese projects. For this China can strike any time. It has no employment for its 25,00,000 army which it has to reduce to just 10,00,000. In 1962 it had similar problem when 70000 of its troops returned from North Korea, whom it thrust into the war with India. It feels threatened with Modi acquiring the stature of a world leader. It had attacked India in 1962 only because it felt similarly threatened by Jawarlal Nehru. India had rejected then, and rejects again today the hegemony or misguided notions of suzerainty of China in this region. China knows the cost of war it wages now, but our traitors have already assured it of full recompense if returned to power in 2019. The country should be alert before it actually happens. Stop buying Chinese goods forthwith.

DATE WITH RTI

Lapse in providing information

 
The appellant filed an application under the RTI Act before the Public Information Officer (PIO) of the Central Information Commission (CIC) seeking information on the action taken on his representation dated 27.08.2011 addressed to the Chief Information Commissioner. The PIO informed that due to oversight, the action taken on the appellant’s representation dated 25.08.2011 instead of 27.08.2011 was provided. The respondent tendered her unconditional apology for this lapse and requested the Commission to condone the same. The CIC noted that correct information has not been provided. Taking a serious note of this lapse, the CIC counselled the PIO to be more careful in future so that such lapses do not recur. Further, the CIC directed the respondent to provide the action taken on the appellant’s representation dated 27.08.2011 to him within a period of four weeks.
 
Comments
 
In case of multiple correspondence from an applicant, the PIO must exercise due care to ensure that what has been sought is being provided. Such a mistake is likely in case of an applicant seeking information through multiple RTI applications.
