जाने-अंजाने में मोदी सरकार कहीं नॉन वेज को बढ़ावा तो नहीं दे रही

‘अच्छे दिन आने वाले हैं’…आपको मोदी सरकार का ये वादा तो याद ही होगा! लेकिन जो हालात हैं उन्हें देखकर सबकुछ उल्टा-पुल्टा सा लगता है. देश के तमिलनाडू और आंध्र प्रदेश जैसे राज्यों में हालात ये हैं कि एक आबादी ने तो दाल छोड़कर मुर्गी और अंडा खान चालू कर दिया है. वहीं चुनाव के दौर से गुज़र रहे बिहार के लोगों ने बताया कि उन्होंने तो चावल के साथ दाल की जगह चटनी को सहारा बना लिया है. वोटर्स के एक तबक के कहना है कि वो यह नहीं समझ पा रहे कि दाल की बढ़ी कीमतें चुनावी मुद्दा क्यों नहीं बन पाईं.

दिल्ली में अरहर दाल 180 रुपए किलो बिक रही है. वहीं चिकन की कीमत 130 रुपए किलो है. आप दाम में फर्क खुद कर लीजिए. बाकी की दालें भी 100 रुपए से महंगी बिक रही हैं. विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि जल्द ही दाल की कीमतें 200 के पार चली जाएंगी. साल 2013 में एक रिपोर्ट में ये तो ज़रूर बता दिया गया कि लोगों के गुज़ारे के लिए 32 रुपए रोज़ाना की रकम काफी हैं लेकिन इस बात पर रौशनी कौन डालेगा कि 180 रुपए किलो की दाल में 25 रुपए रोज़ाना का गणित कैसे बैठेगा.

ब्राहम्ण-बनियों की सरकार मानी जाने वाली बीजेपी के नेता एक तरफ तो बीफ बैन का विरोध कर रहें हैं वहीं सरकार जाने-अंजाने में नॉन वेज को बढ़ावा दे रही है. लेकिन इन सब में वो तबका हमेशा ठगा सा महसूस कर रहा है जिसे अच्छे दिन के सपने दिखाए जाते हैं. बिहार चुनाव में एक बार फिर से जाति और धर्म मुख्य मुद्दा बन गए हैं. वोटर्स से बात करने पर गाय पर हो रही राजनीति सतह पर आ जाती है लेकिन 8 नंबवर को जब विधानसभा चुनाव के नतीजे आ जाएंगे और अगले पांच साल के लिए सरकार तय हो जाएगी तब कोई गाय की बात नहीं करेगा और महंगाई जस की तस बनी रहेगी. वोटर एक बार फिर थोड़ा उनकी वजह से और थोड़ा खुद की वजह से ठगा जाएगा और अच्छें दिनों के इंतजार में ये सरकार भी बीते जाएगी और पाले आएगा कोई नया जुमला!

कुलकर्णी पर फेंकी गई स्याही को तेज़ाब बनते देर नहीं लगेगी

साल 2011 में पाकिस्तान के पंजाब सूबे के तत्कालीन गवर्नर सलमान तासीर के कत्ल की ख़बर ने पाकिस्तानियों के साथ बाकी दुनिया को भी सकते में डाल दिया था. तब शायद ही किसी को गुमान हुआ कि ये ऐसे घटनाएं भारत में भी घटने लग जाएंगी. दरअसल, सलमान तासीर को उनके दो बॉडी गार्ड्स ने इसलिए मौत के घाट उतार दिया था क्योंकि वे पाकिस्तान के ईशनिंदा (पैगंबर मोहमम्द आलोचना) के तत्कालीन कानून से इत्तेफाक नहीं रखते थे. सलमान तासीर अपने ही मज़हब में मौजूद कमज़ोरियों के खिलाफ लड़ी जा रही लड़ाई में मार दिए गए. वे मुसलमान थे,पाकिस्तानी थी, ऊंचे ओहदे पर विराजमान थे, लेकिन धर्म के उन्माद ने उनकी जान ले ली.

अब आज के भारत में लौटते हैं. सुधींद्र कुलकर्णी पर शिवसेना वालों ने इसलिए स्याही फेंक दी क्योंकि वे पाकिस्तान के पूर्व विदेश मंत्री खुर्शिद महमूद कसूरी की किताब के लॉन्च के प्रमुख आयोजक थे. कुलकर्णी बीजेपी के लौहपुरुष अडवाणी के मीडिया सलाहकार रहे हैं. जब इस दौर का इतिहास लिखा जाएगा तब अडवाणी का नाम भारत के विराट हिंदुओं में लिखा जाएगा. उनका नाम शायद बाला ठाकरे जैसे विराट हिंदू से तो  ऊपर ही होगा. कुलकर्णी हिंदू हैं,भारतीय भी हैं. अडवाणी जैसे विराट हिंदू के सलाहकार भी रहे हैं,लेकिन इन सबके बावजूद उन्हें बख्शा नहीं गया. कुलकर्णी के मुंह पर स्याही फेंककर शिवसेना ने खुद को ज़्यादा हिंदू और ज़्यादा भारतीय साबित कर दिया. ठीक वैसे ही जैसे सलमान तासीर के हत्यारों ने उनकी हत्या करके खुद को ज़्यादा मुसलमान, बड़ा मुसलमान साबित किया था.

साल 2014 में पाकिस्तान के शहर पेशावर में एक आर्मी स्कूल पर आतंकी हमला हुआ, इसमें 145 लोगों की हत्या हुई, जिनमें ज़्यादातर छोटे-छोटे मासूम स्कूली बच्चे थे. हमले करने वाले किसी दूसरे देश से नहीं आए थे, बल्कि पाकिस्तान सरकार के जरिए पाले गए सगे आतंकवादी थे. पाकिस्तान इस्लाम, भारत विरोध और कश्मीर के नाम पर इन्हें सालों से पालता आया है. आज इनके पालतू इन्हें ही नोच रहे हैं.

पिछले कई महीनों से भारत भी पाकिस्तान हो चला है. अगर आप इसी तरह बर्दाश्त करते रहे तो आपको पता भी नहीं चलगा कि स्याही कब तेज़ाब बन गई. आप पाकिस्तान और उन जैसे धर्म के उन्माद से भरे देशों की हालत देख सकते हैं. किसी की नफरत को आधार बनाकर पलने वाला देश पाकिस्तान हो जाता है. अब हमें ये तय करना होगा कि सालों से धार्मिक भाईचारे की परंपरा के बूते टिके रहने वाली धरती को उसी ढर्रे पर बरकरार रखना है या आतंकवादियों और दहशतगर्दों को सौंप देना है?

सलमान तासीर के तर्ज पर हम पहले से ही कलबुर्गी, पनसारे और दाभोलकर को खो चुके हैं, अगर ऐसी ही गुंडई जारी रही तो कल गए ये आंतकी हमारे बच्चों के स्कूलों पर भी हमला करने लगेंगे. हमें इनका जमकर सामना करना पड़ेगा…समाज के लिए, देश के लिए,मानवता के लिए और अपने बच्चों के भाविष्य और उनकी जान के लिए!

The Battle of ‘Bihar’

Bihar is all set to vote and this election seems to be a tough battle for Nitish, Lalu and Modi. The politics in Bihar has always been woven around caste although PM said that development would be the agenda for this election.

At this point of time not only Bihar but the entire country is witnessing a topsy turvy situation with the odour of communalism spell all over. The beef politics has escalated to such a level that every eminent politician has spoken about it.

The Dadri or the Mainpuri incidents are deeply affecting the mind of Bihari Muslims. Both the incidents have definitely affected the psyche of a muslim voter. The community as a minority feels insecure of the government. The incidents in UP side by side are also paving way to communalism in the state which will go to polls in 2017.

Experts on one hand believe that BJP is trying to bring a communal colour to this election and has very successfully tilted the agenda also. Many believe that the elections could have been fought without using the Hindu- Muslim card. The silence of PM on this issue is again supporting the claim strongly.

On the other hand Nitish Kumar has been successful in averting any such issue in Bihar. Through the statements over #Beef parties are trying to show their support either for or against it. BJP has clearly stated that if voted to power it would take strict measures to stop cow slaughter, a move to gain Hindu vote base.

Many though believe that by inciting anti-muslim feelings through politics over Beef certain parties are trying to portray BJP as a staunch right wing party. The anti- BJP propaganda gets supported by the very BJP ideology of its being a right wing party and Modi has tried hard but  has not been successful yet in washing the 2002 riots stain.

The Battle for Bihar will continue and the parties will keep playing the blame game but the truth is the voter today is much aware of right or wrong. Such incidents should not deter anyone irrespective of caste or religion to make a right choice.

Eve teasing, the latest trend of public stunt

“Before you judge make sure you are perfect,” this quote goes so true with the recent controversy of Jasleen Kaur, Traffic controller, later on said to be a political volunteer who accused a boy in eve teasing case in Delhi last week.

This incident took many turns just like those usually acquired by Mr. Kejriwal, also the proofs about her being an AAP volunteer are wishy-washy. But what Sunny (name changed, accused) claimed that she is playing tantrums just to publicise herself and take more points on her being a ‘Woman’.

Our country is aware of the status women have earned irrespective of cases hurting their sentiments by the male dominant society. Mostly boys are the target group because of their inbuilt talent of egoism, but sometime they may not be the only suspect. We are not confirming that Sunny has not done any mistake, or the entire fault is that of Jasleen, but what is revealed by witness and portrayed by media tells a different story.

Indian Express has exposed a video of his correspondent sharing the real story of the incident with the byte from the accused and the eye-witness who is firm on his statement that it was just a discussion not an eve teasing case. If you have missed the video have a look!

Another video which is trending by the name of #Shameontimesnow The way ethics of Journalism is going, has to be taken care of. Journalism means to find the truth based on balence not to allege someone. In this video, the reporter is telling the boy that “Badtameezi aapne ki hai” (you have been the one who has done inappropriate thing). She has given least chances to the boy to reply.

Thus, the case has many legs yet with no conclusion. So, finally we can go back to the first line of our article which reminds about judging the person before being judgemental on any issue.

The politics of DNA in Bihar

Politics in India has evolved over the time. There was a time when the leaders were polite even while targeting the opposition. Over the time, the politicians have started using an aggressive language that will capture the attention of the masses.
Indian Prime Minister is proficient in seeking the attention of the public by his speeches. He has given many catchphrases to the public through his speeches. Undoubtedly, he is a good orator, and many wait for his political address.
Recently while addressing a political rally in Bihar, PM Modi stated that THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE DNA OF NITISH KUMAR BECAUSE THE DNA OF DEMOCRACY IS NOT LIKE THAT, IN DEMOCRACY PEOPLE RESPECT THEIR POLITICAL RIVALS . His comment came in view of the broken alliance of BJP and JDU. Nitish, who was in alliance with the BJP since 2005 and ran a successful government, had broken up the alliance after eight years in 2013. The major reason for their separation is said to be Nitish Kumar’s displeasure with Modi’s Prime Ministership.
Modi’s comment did not go well with Bihar CM. He expressed his displeasure with the every possible way. He and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav asked PM to take back his words and started a campaign called Shabd Vapsi. He used social media to show his displeasure and even wrote a letter to PM saying his DNA was the DNA of the people of Bihar.
After exploring all the avenues when Bihar CM felt that enough wasn’t said and done, he came up with a unique political stunt to grab the eyeballs. He has said that as a part of Shabd Wapsi campaign 50 lakh people of Bihar will send their hair and nail samples for the DNA tests that will cost more than $500m if done.
The political gimmick of Nitish is childish. He is trying to win over the sentiments of people by talking about Bihari pride. Mr. Kumar has forgotten that it is the same state which had given a mandate to him for progress and development, and those people have the political maturity to understand his play.
This campaign seems to have a negative impact rather than gaining positive numbers. It will altogether hurt the sentiments of the Bihari people and might trigger a sentiment against him. His alliance with RJD, which was earlier the biggest opposition has already made people sceptical about his political motives.
Instead of indulging in petty politics, he should work towards the development of the state. The state that still has the literacy rate of 69.83% needs to focus on something that will altogether contribute to its enhancement.
In Bihar, the elections are won, and politics is done majorly on the issues of caste. It is a high time when the people of Bihar need to realise that it is important to rise above caste politics to cope up with the progress of other states.

A Wishy-Washy debate

#lalitgate- it has been almost two months since we are hearing this word and till date no conclusion has been found in this case. The same has been the reason for the Lok Sabha debate on this topic. Don’t know, how many of our MPs were present during the debate and how many of them were not absent minded?

Leaving behind the other primary problems to debate in India this #lalitgate was of the top most priority. Health Insurance scheme for disabled person bill, food and drought control bill, national food security bill, prevention of girl trafficking etc have been the few examples of the bills still pending in the Loksabha. But instead of showing light on these issues the debate was on something which had no base and no way to where it is going.

The war went on and on between Congress’ Vice President Rahul Gandhi and India’s foreign minister  Sushma Swaraj, which diverted from their main agenda of knowing the reason behind the birth of what lalitgate was all about. Bombardment of dialogues in the Lok Sabha is not a new thing to see but yes the appropriate dialogue aimed at the right person was something to stick to. Arun Jaitley quoted Rahul Gandhi as “He is expert without knowledge. Sushma Swaraj straightaway, made fun of Rahul by telling him to go back and read their patriarchal history of corruption stories. And not leaving the most awaited dialogue of the day “The Nation Wants to know” by

Sushma. Later-on like all other debate is not completed till it has an authentication of showing on Arnab Goswami’s Prime time show, this lalitgate hour was also not a hit. With Arnab shouting over to the panellist about the reason why Sushma used his patent dialogues and why not gave the answer of all relevant questions which nation wants to know.

Like any other debate on the news hour, this one too ended without any conclusion and in a big fight without any reason. Just a halla-bol show Lok Sabha debate was no better than the content for News Hour debate!!!

 

Pakistan Sex Scandal

Pakistan has been battling with numerous issues. The internal crisis in Pakistan has gone to new heights with the future of Pakistan being grim. The recent child abuse case in the village of Husain Khanwala and other villages in Kasur district of Punjab province is said to be one of the largest ever child abuse case.

The case came to light last week after 400 video recordings of more than 280 children being forced to have sex was discovered. Many were beaten and drugged and forced to indulge in Oral sex.

The case involves nearly 300 children who were forced to indulge in various sexual acts by a gang of almost 25 youths from the village. The act has also been recorded. It is a clear case of pedophilia. This is not the first time in the country. Pakistan experienced a similar tragedy in the late 1990s when 100 children were sexually abused and murdered in Lahore by Javed Iqbal Mughal, a serial killer.

Several questions have been put forth by the incident. Most importantly the heinous act of Pedophilia comes to light again. Time and again the innocence of numerous across the globe have been murdered by the mental disorder of the accused.

The issue is not limited to just one country, it is a global problem that needs to be dealt with utter sensitivity.

In 2006, the Britain’s one of the worst pedophile was sentenced to 20 years in jail. Robert Smith admitted that over 30 years he had preyed 21 children many of which were toddlers. He raped them and used them as sex playthings. Many of his victims developed serious mental disorders.

This is just an example from a country. The internet is flooded with articles on worst cases of pedophilia from around the globe. According to a report in International Business Times, the top 5 countries with the highest rate of sexual abuse are South Africa, India, Zimbabwe, United Kingdom and the United States respectively.

The idea to write this article is to instigate the thought that Pedophilia is a serious disorder that needs to be discussed. As a journalist, I encountered several problems in writing a story on pedophilia.

It is difficult to recognize who is suffering from the disorder. Moreover, I realized that the social stigma with the disorder is so much that pedophile finds it hard to discuss it and find a solution.

A pedophile needs a lot of self-control and counseling to refrain from entering into any act of pedophilia. Therefore, it is necessary that the society remove the blot and help a pedophile deal with it rather than leaving him in seclusion to turn into an offender.

If it is Pakistan today, it can be India also. We need to understand that seclusion and secrecy have higher chances of a crime being committed. As a society, it is our responsibility to provide each child a social security. Such acts only push these children to utter darkness leaving an impression on their tender minds.

शर्म करो शिवराज- भेंड़ की खाल में भेड़िया निकले सीधे-साधे दिखने वाले सीएम

सत्ता की चकाचौन्ध उठाती है सत्ता की चकाचौन्ध ही गिराती हैं. सत्ता खुद को पाने के लिए तपाती है फिर वहाँ बने रहने के लिए हर किसी को जलवाती हैं. देश के भीतर का सच यही हो चला है सत्ता की ताकत इतनी बेख़ौफ़ हो चली है कि खुद के लिए किसी का खून भी बहा सकती है.  इसे जानने के लिए कहीं दूर जाने की जरूरत नहीं है शिवराज के राज वाले मध्य प्रदेश ही चले चलिए. जी हाँ, ये वही शिवराज है जो अपनी मासूम छवि के आसरे देश में छाए हुए थे. परन्तु व्यापमं घोटाले में एक के बाद एक मौत राज्य की हकीकत बयान करने लगे हैं. सत्ता में बने रहने की भेंट हर वो इंसान चढ़ रहा है जो सत्ता के लिए थोडा खतरा हो सकता है फिर चाहे घोटाले में शामिल डॉक्टर हों या छात्र या भीतर का सच दिखाने गया कोई पत्रकार. वैसे ये व्यापमं पहला मामला नहीं है जिसमें शिवराज पर सवालिया निशान लगे है ऐसे कारनामों की फेहरिस्त बहुत लम्बी है पर नेशनल मीडिया के सिमित दायरे ने उनका सच सामने आने ही नहीं दिया.

पिछले कुछ दिनों से जैसे ही दिन गुजर रहा होता है शाम होते होते एक खबर जरूर आ जाती है कि व्यापमं घोटाले में मौत का सिलसिला और आगे बढ़ गया. आकड़ों का खेल कुछ भी कहता रहे कि इतने मरे उतने मरे और उनके जाने से कितने घर उजड़ गए कितने बापों ने अपने कंधों पर अपने बेटों को उठाया पर सत्ता के सियासतदान शिवराज उफ़ तक नहीं कर रहे. क्योंकि पूरे मामले में शिवराज पर खुद व्यक्तिगत आरोप हैं. एक के बाद एक मौत ये सवाल तो खड़े करेंगे ही क्या खुद को बचाए रखने के लिए सीएम द्वार इतने लोगों की बलि चढ़ाई जा रही है. क्योंकि बहुत बार इंसान की चुप्पी बहुत कुछ कह जाती हैं. पर जब शिवराज के शिल्पकार ही कह बैठे कि आने वाला तो जायेगा ही. इसके बाद पूरा सच किसी से छुपा रह नहीं जाता.

एमपी में रेत माफिया पूरे राज्य को जकड़ में लिए बैठे हैं. पुलिस से लेकर आलाधिकारियों की हिम्मत तक नहीं कि उनके खिलाफ कुछ बोल सकें. अगर किसी ने हिम्मत दिखा दी तो उसका तबादला तैयार रहता है. अगर किसी आईपीएस अधिकारी ने खनन माफिया के खिलाफ आवाज उठाई तो फिर इसकी क़ीमत उसे अपनी जान देकर चुकानी पड़ती है. सत्ता की ताकत के बिना कोई भी माफिया इतना बेलगाम हो नहीं सकता.

अपने गांव को बचाने के लिए लोग महीना भर पानी में खड़े रहे वो भी भूखप्यास की परवाह किए बिना पर उनकी सुध लेने वाला कोई नहीं. क्योंकि शिवराज की सत्ता की उनसे अधिक कॉरपोरेट्  की पड़ी है जिनके मुनाफे के लिए इतने लोगों का घर बर्बाद किया जा रहा है. ना जाने कितने लोगों के पैर पानी में खड़े खड़े सड़ गए पर शिवराज की चुप्पी ने नहीं टूटी.

हर वक़्त नैतिकता का राग अलापने वाला संघ भी इतना सब होने के बावजूद मौन धारण किये बैठे हैं

Hit and Run by the red beacon and the VIP culture

[box]By Samridhi Dikshit[/box]downloadMedia buzzing with minister’s car accident stories, adding on the list is Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s speeding car convoy caused an accident, killing a woman (as NDTV reports). Next update was that he denied car accompanying him. It is obvious to deny as nobody is so honest to accept their fault in first attempt especially in cases related to minister’s. What matters here is the death of a woman by his car.

Last night we heard a four year old child was killed when actress-cum-politician Hema Malini’s speeding Mercedes hit a Maruti Alto in Rajasthan. After the first information report or FIR was filed the driver has been arrested this morning. News is floating with injuries to Hema Malini but who knows the fact about who the child was? I know media depends on prominence factor but we can’t leave ‘behind the scene stories’ as these stories are equally important.

If media reports are to be believed, Hema Malini, who’s a BJP MP, ran from the spot. It is being suggested by the media reports; it was her injuries which was the most prominent thing for Hema. Again, if the reports are true, the little kid would have been saved, if she would have been taken to the hospital alongside Hema but despite having enough space in her SUV, Hema didn’t find it rational to take anybody with her.

It has been seen a trend that Minister’s car with Laal batti has been accused of killing person in accident. For example in the month of May Kerala Minister Dr MK Muneer was travelling in an SUV that hit a man riding a scooter who was a  college professor  died after reaching hospital.

Who will speak against these incidents, will they get any witness like those in normal cases, and the same goes with Salman’s hit and run case too! Months and years will be passed with files kept one above the other without any justice, after that the story will be the same, minister’s in their comfort zone will add on to their mistakes. One who has the power to rule should set an example as an IDOL.

God of agriculture is in danger!!!

A country where on one hand 70% of the population is based on agriculture, on the other hand 26% of them have committed suicides is our Incredible India. Every other day we come across ministers especially Rahul Gandhi who is planning to become Kisan ka Bhagwan said he will make Amethi the agricultural hub.

Next on the list is our Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who with his Dharnas is very famous among the farmers and also due to one of the farmer’s death in the land acquisition rally. Is he there to support them or lessen the number of farmers from India?

Our story today is on the recent condition of agriculture in India. Due to agrarian reasons suicides have increased by 26% to 1,109 in 2014, out of which 986 were reported from Maharashtra, 84 from Telangana and 29 from Jharkhand (as per Indian Express reports).

Today, India, the world’s second-largest producer of wheat is in such a state it has raised a need to import it from other countries. Since wheat is largely grown in India’s central and northern plains, flour millers from southern states, hemmed in by the Indian Ocean, sometimes find it attractive to import high-protein grades from Australia. Industry and government officials estimate this year’s wheat output at about 90 million tonnes, nearly 5%  lower than the 2014 harvest, but still exceeding domestic demand of about 72 million tonnes. There are strong chances that traders will import 5 lakh tonnes to French and Russian, wheat will find their way to India because of attractive prices and if the euro goes down (as per IBN reports).

So, now we leave  this to our Prime Minister Narendra Modi to decide and take step on this scenario. As he with his ‘Modification’ is going to digitalise India into an agricultural hub! Bringing Walmart and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is he going to promote the farmers or demote them, coming days will decide!
