Earth As Viewed by ChandraYaan

The Terrain Mapping camera (TMC) on board Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft was successfully operated on October 29, 2008 through a series of commands issued from the Spacecraft Control Centre of ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) at Bangalore

The first imagery (Chandrayaan 1) taken at 8:00 am IST from a height of 9,000 km shows the Northern coast of Australia while the other (Chandrayaan 2) taken at 12:30 pm from a height of 70,000 km shows Australia’s Southern Coast.

Response to What Should I Have Done

This post is in response to What should have I done

–         Do you want to talk about Shiv Sena leaders who were named by the by the Srikrishna commission accused in the Mumbai riots of 93?

–         Bal Thackeray who was accused of inciting communal violence with his writings?

–         Or should we talk about the Telgi case which originated in Maharashtra (with the help of a few ministers from maharashtra) which cost the Indian economy 32000 Cr

–         Why would a person so passionate about his home state make a statement  “If Raj is arrested, entire Maharashtra be set on fire”

–         Should we talk about the brutal rape and murder of a Dalit family in Maharashtra?

–         Your so called “Hindi Based Bollywood” is the sole reason why non Hindi speaking Maharastrain’s are getting jobs which they wont get in “Marathi Speaking Film Industry”

 

This can go on and on without ever stopping. The point is MNS actions cannot be justified. If you believe killing of people in Maharashtra is the right solution then I have nothing to say to you

What Can I Do

“What can I do? I have sent a strong letter to the Chief Minister.”

This is what our honorable prime minister said when allies and party leaders cornered him on MNS issue.

Sir , What should we do when

1. MNS workers kill a shopkeeper when he simply refused to down shutters.

2. When a UP youth was killed just a fight over window seat.

3. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena  attacks north Indian candidates appearing for a railway recruitment examination citing inadequate representation to locals in the exam.

4. When a citizens fundamental right is challenged by MNS.

5. A senior journalist from Uttar Pradesh is brutally beaten by supporters of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena just because he wanted to report on MNS workers abusing and attacking a settlement of people from north India.

Should we also send strong letters to the Chief Minister?

Maharashtra – A Banana Republic ?

Killing of a 25 year old laborer is infact is a matter of shame for all Maharashtrians . A state which has produced such great leaders has also produced goonda’s like the Thackerays. A society that cannot gaurantee security to its citizens in my view has failed.

Maharastrian civil society is scared of speaking against Raj Thackeray. How can educated Maharastrians not stand up against this goondaraaj? 

A friend of mine asks on his blog 

What does the term citizenship refer to?

What does the term Nation mean?

Will I have to specify the State Nativity whenever I introduce myself?

Will I need a visa to travel from one state to another, in my own nation?

I am going through an identity crisis. Who am I?

Not only has the local government failed , even the central government has failed . They cannot even guarantee  safety of north indians in this state. 

And for Raj Thackeray who is “supposedly” fighting for marathi honor must remember that honour does not have to be defended.

And to Congress for being a spineless government , you just lost my vote.
