Aretrospective of 1962 debacle (Organiser, 28.10.2012); This is with reference to ‘A retrospective of 1962 debacle’, by Prof SV Seshagiri Rao in Organiser. On 50th anniversary of Indo-China war, the country is paying homage to the martyrs, who laid down their lives fighting against Chinese military aggression in 1962. TV channels and articles which appeared in newspaper, all squarely blamed Pt Nehru, VK Krishna Menon, Gen Thapar, Lt Gen BM Kaul and BN Malik for their casual and indifferent approach to the problem. Sardar Patel had warned Nehru about the Chinese attack long before his death in 1951. The day Chou-en-Lai landed in India for the first time, MS Golwalkar had said that we are welcoming our enemy. By 1957 China had occupied Tibet, thousands of Tibetans migrated to India due to treachery and suppression by the Chinese. After that Chinese started constructing roads towards south of Himalayas. By this time our nationalist media was loud in criticism, and this issue became the talk of the day in the streets of Delhi and other places. Still Pt Nehru remained enchanted with his Panchsheel, which China had signed. In 1962 inevitable happened. Our unprepared and ill equipped army was badly defeated. Now Pt Nehru woke up. He was jittery and disgusted for defeat without much resistance. Krishna Menon of Communist background appeared normal as if nothing happened. But in a few days both were under pressure inside and outside the Parliament. I was at Durgapur (W Bengal) at that time and was stunned to see that Jyoti Basu and his CPM cadres were openly and brazely advocating that China was on its own land, and it was India which was the aggressor. So India must settle the border dispute with China. Krishna Menon much to his dislikes, was forced to resign from the position of defence minister, later he resigned from Member of the Parliament, as well as from the primary membership of Congress Party. For Communists it was the victory of peasants and workers, but for nationalists, it was losing of vast territory to China and loss of honour of Bharatmata. Congress nominated BN Barve on the Parliament seat vacated by Krishna Menon. But Menon was audacious to challenge BN Brave in election as an Independent candidate supported by the Communists. Menon met with well deserved defeat with a huge margin. Pt Nehru’s Panchsheel was mired in dustbin for not to be talked again, even by non-aligned countries. His attempts to persuade Russia, to somehow stop China half a way through will known Communist leader Bhupesh Gupta, failed. Chinese only stopped when they had run over Himalayas. Pt Nehru with his falling health was in such a pathetic condition, is evident from his two letters written to US President John Kennedy for military help. The country is still suffering for the mistakes committed by Pt Nehru.

Should India play cricket with Pakistan? (Organiser, 21.10.2012); This refers to ‘Should India play cricket with Pakistan?’, by Shri JG Arora in Organiser. It gives details of the cruelties and wrongs done by the Muslims and Pakistan against the Hindus and India. It would be shamefully degrading, if India indulges in playing cricket, or any type of measures with false hopes of improving relations with Pakistan, the very foundation of which is based on hatred against the Hindus and India. Dr B R Ambedkar had very true picture about the Muslims, and expresses his views based on reality in his book, Pakistan or the Partition of India. On Page 83 of the book he writes that “The realist must take note of the fact, that Musalmans look upon the Hindus as kafirs, who deserve more to be exterminated than protected.” The best course for India would be to follow Israel, i.e. the policy of tit for tat. The main problem is that Israel is a Jews nation, where as India is not a Hindu nation, although in the eyes of Pakistan, India is a Hindu country which deserve destruction. Muslim vote-bank, which is openly pro-Pakistan and anti-India, is quite strong, and would become more and more strong with the passage of time, due to their fast multiplication. Congress and its allies, who get elected with the help of Muslim vote-bank, would never do any thing, not liked by Muslims. Thus in a way, India is being ruled by the Muslims, through Congress and its allies. This Muslim vote-bank will have to be eliminated, if we want a truly nationalist government. We must follow the advice of Dr Ambedkar.

Playing cricket with Pakistan can prove to be suicidal for India.Whatever relations India will try to maintain with Pakistan, this will be a futile exercise, since, Pakistan will never stop its terrorist activities in India. Pakistan has declared jihad against India and taken an oath that it will one day take into its fold whole of India. With this mentality and attitude of Pakistan, having more of interaction and rapport with India can prove to be dangerous for India and Pakistan will have a free hand in expanding and operating its terrorists activities in India. As what the author has rightly said “treat the wicked in his own wicked way”, India should snap all its ties from Pakistan in all walks of life and spheres. Perhaps this can be one of the efficient way to control terrorism from Pakistan.

Vadra’s wealth, Congress in turmoil (Organiser, 21.10.2012); This is with reference to the front page article in Organiser, ‘Vadra’s wealth, Congress is in turmoil’. I congratulate the writer Aditya Pradhan and Abhimanyu for their bold initiative in bringing to light unbelievable secrets of heinous corruption by Sonia Gandhi in the guise of Vadra. I also appreciate the gallantry of Arvind Kejriwal that he has totally risked his personal life for the sake of saving this nation from corrupt rowdies like Sonia Gandhi, Robert Vadra and the entire UPA clan. Shame on their broad day light looting of the nation. There is no wonder if in near future Arvind Kejriwal is physically liquidated by UPA in some “stage managed conspiracy”. Hats off to the gallantry of this national hero, Arvind Kejriwal. I support his noble fight against corruption, under the banner of IAC (India Against Corruption). Our sold out media has also shamefully confessed that they knew about all this (corrupt tactics of Vadra in amassing wealth) a long time ago. Then why did they kept mum? Is it not treason? Is it not helping corrupt Sonia Gandhi and her gang to loot this nation? Shame on this treason committed by media. At least now they should come out with facts and help their nation to punish these traitors. The story of loot starts with DLF SEZ Holding Pvt Ltd being incorporated in 2007 acquitted in 2008 by M/s North India IT Parks Pvt Ltd (Robert Vadra Group of Companies and again sold back to DLF group). In this drama both the MNC, DLF group and Robert Vadra got land worth several thousand crores at a throw away price. This is the main act of treason and corruption. State government of Harayana is helping Vadra to grab precious land at throw away price. There maybe many more such unholy scandals let us wait and watch.For the time being I wish that an enquiry into all these allegations should be conducted by fact finding committee consisting of Anna Hazare, Baba Ram and any Retd. Judge of Supreme Court.

The mystery over Sonia Gandhi’s foreign trips deepens (Organiser, 14.10.2012); This is with reference to the editorial in Organiser, ‘The mystery over Sonia Gandhi’s foreign trips deepens’. The expenditure on foreign trips of Sonia Gandhi must be highlighted at all cost. The best method is to move an application under the Right to Information Act. In case there is no response from the UPA-2 government, an application can also be put in the Supreme Court of India for suitable directions. If privately funded, it will be a clear cut case of open corruption. Although the Congress Party adopted a policy of don’t ask don’t tell, but I feel that if proper pressure is put on the government through media and the aam aadmi then government will definitely have to bow down.

How to select the right B-School (Organiser, 21.10.2012); There is no denying that education system in India needs to be refurbished. While there has been a steady growth of private schools with better infrastructure and facilities for students, not all of them are easily affordable or comparable in providing quality education. But government schools are even worse. They not only lack basic infrastructure, but also impart poor quality education often marked by glaring examples of teacher absenteeism. For a better school education system for Indian students, the government and the private sector must work together to reform it. A public-private model can surely be created to provide affordable quality education to millions of students across the country. In addition teachers must also realise their responsibilities, especially in government schools. They should introduce innovative ways to foster imaginative and logical thinking among students.

A new prophet It is difficult even for prophets to say as to what will happen tomorrow. But a new prophet has come to the scene with definite promise that those children and youth who take part in the rallies in connection with Krishna Jayanti will be the fanatics and communalist of tomorrow. His name is Vishnu Nath. But he does not go to the trouble of foretelling the future of those Muslims and Christians – especially Muslims – who take part in the celebrations connected with the “sacred” days of the respective religions. Perhaps the experience of Prof Joseph may be working on his sub-conscious mind. He knows fully well that the coward Hindu will never go to the extend of making trouble in the name of Sri Krishna who lived in Dwapara Yuga. Here we have a neighbour ex-chief minister—Karunanidhi – who wanted to know the name of the Engineering College were Sri Rama studied the art of making Sethu. He too does not want to know the name and nature of the vehicle through which the prophet Mohammad flew up to seventh sky or the name of the sandals by the help of which Jesus Christ walked over the sea. All these ultra secularists are only anxious to know about Hindu gods and Hindu superstitions. In the contest I want to impress upon these secularist that too much teasing will compel the Hindu to turn at bay.

Need of one more ministry at the Centre Creation of one more ministry is needed in union council of ministers. It’s primary duty should be to maintain up to date record and to inform the nation about the truce which is being violated by the Pakistan from time to time. Expecting peace and goodwill from Pakistan is nothing but mirage and foolishness. Unless and until there is disappearance of Pakistan from the world map peace and normalcy will not be restored in Indian subcontinent.

Reforms to divert aam aadmi’s attention It is surprising that the UPA-2 government which should have resigned the moment its ministers were imprisoned in connection to several scams that rocked that nation, is still playing ducks and drakes to stick to power like a limpet. Another surprise is the conduct of the BSP Chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav. Instead of pulling down the Congress led UPA-2 they are brazenly opposing it. The government which suffered policy paralysis for three years, suddenly jumps and tosses up the so-called big-bang reforms which are a ruse to divert people’s attention from various scams in which UPA-2 is deep neck involved.
