Truly, this is your lifetime achievement

R Mitra


This is History (923)

Dictators are allergic to reform, and they are cunning survivors. They will do whatever it takes to preserve their power and wealth, no matter how much blood ends up on their hands. They are master deceivers and talented manipulators who cannot be trusted to change.

My friend who is an Investment Advisor meets me at my Office. Over Desi Lattes ( Hot Milk , Nesafe and Sugar) and Jim-Jam and Bourbon Biscuits we get chatting.

Friend:  National Herald (NH) is a case that should be taught at Harvard....5 lacs to 2000 crores without raising Sweat....

Me: Once BJP wins in 2019 Harvard can invite Swamy to lecture on NH and he'll also lecture on the phenomenal  Global Businesses of a UPA Minister and his son.. Swamy holds a PhD on them....... now the ex HAL Chief says HAL is capable of Building Raffales....

F: Well he first should answer why for years could Dassault and HAL not come to an agreement... in fact its rumoured  Dassault did not want to collaborate with HAL after the negotiation delay during UPA.....

M: And bottom line for Indian Collaborator it was to be Dassault's choice.... we are just guessing why Dassault  developed an allergy for HAL...

F: And why doesn't RaGa answer why UPA did not order Rafalles....I hear Defence Sector is agog with rumours...that there could be some 'external  factors' ..... no way of confirming..

M: Unless someone in Dassault or some Defence Sector Middleman were keeping Notes......or there was correspondence on this issue within Dassault... like in Augusta case...

F: St. Antony's latest barb.... if this Government felt it  got such a good Deal from Dassault why not order 126 rather than 36 Raffales...

M: And spend the entire  annual Defence Budget on one acquisition.... that's why IAF was asked what was its minimum requirement  to maintain its Balance of Power in the Air....

F: Congress compares prices of UPA's bare Fighters with NDA's armed to the teeth backed up by Service Fighters.... they say there is a Note during UPA's time that estimated the cost of Rafalle with India Specific Needs.... 2000 cr...this Government has got even more when it comes to technical specs ... for 1600 crores...

M: And a lesser Quantity...

F: Very rightly Bhagwat cleared the misconceptions about RSS spread by RSS's adversaries..

M: I think what matters for RSS is not your Religion or Caste...  what matters  is your Indianess....

F: I think Congress will now have to work overtime to get Muslims back to same level of being  huddled ....befuddled and muddled on RSS...

M: Yes....  fake Swamis will be used.....Congress simply cannot afford Muslims feeling RSS is not the Enemy. 

F: Chalo inn ke pannge chalte rahe ge.... Mallya... Lalit... Nirav....Choksi have got together in London and formed a Company..  its name..... Hindustan Leavers.....FMCG......Fast Minting and Camouflaging Ghoos...

Babus Find Politics More Vibrant To Serve The People
By Sanjay Sharma
Much has been said from time to time on the merits and demerits of bureaucrats joining politics. It has also been debated for long whether there should be a ‘cooling off’ period for a civil servant before he enters politics after quitting or even after retirement.
While difference of opinion over these issues can never be ruled out, there could be no two opinions that, theoretically bureaucrats are most eligible and efficient persons for becoming politicians as they are well acquainted with ground realities - necessary for policy formation.
Having worked at various stages - at district level as collectors, at state level in secretariat and , in majority cases, at various positions in central government, they are supposed to be well versed with the ‘process of policy implementation’ - a boon to serve the nation  in their stint as a politician and as a minister in government in particular,.
But since the officers rarely have the freedom to work as they please, and are mostly employed in service of politicians and not the State, many of them  - eyeing politics as a vibrant medium of serving the nation - join it.
There is a long list of former bureaucrats, police officers, diplomats, technocrats, academics and army officers who are into politics.
They include familiar names like General VK Singh, Kiran Bedi, Ms. Meira Kumar, Hardeep Puri, RK Singh, Sanjiv Tripathi, Mani Shankar Aiyar, N K Singh, Satyapal Singh, Bhagirath Prasad, Yashwant Sinha, Ajit Jogi, Nagabhairava Jayaprakash Narayan, Alphons Kannanthanam, Jesudasu Seelam, J Sundara Sekhar, Arvind Kejriwal, PL Punia and the list goes on.........
