An article worth reading….by Neh

Don’t blame Pakistan or the terrorist. They had the courage and pride to inflict damage to a country they believe is there enemy. We have to blame so called Indians like the Thackeray’s and the people who follow them (Marathi Manoos) who are making our society weak. These people unlike the rest of India have never had to struggle and have lived off the wealth created by outsiders. They have negligible contribution towards the growth of Mumbai which was created by outsiders who believed in national pride, hope, hard work and continuous struggle for progress. Mumbai was created by British, Gujaratis, Marwadis, Parsis and companies like TATA’s whose wealth came from their flagship company “Tata Steel” in Bihar. In fact most of these people don’t know or care about Indian History, have never stepped outside Maharastra and are not aware that Mumbai wasn’t even a part of Maharashtra. It was part of Gujarat before and the population of marathis in Mumbai was negligible before independence (http://www.mumbaispace.com/cityinfo/history.htm).

Lack of enterprise, ethics, courage and hard work has resulted in a society which demonstrates incompetence in every area and has the potential to adversely effect the Nations growth and prosperity. Some of these examples amply demonstrate this:-

1.) WEAK & CORRUPT POLICE:- 14 maharastrian policeman died without killing a single terrorist !!! This is because it is more of political force then a law enforcer. Why do they have fancy names likes ATS when they can’t protect themselves, leave alone protecting others, thier jeeps get hijacked by terrorist!! In fact at CST when a brave photographer (Anil Singh – who shot the photographs of the terrorists) informed armed policemen about the terrorists , they ran away. Inspite of all this we make these people National heroes and people like Sharmila the wife of Raj Thackeray sends SMSs glamorizing the non existent contribution of marathis in saving the city by stating that all policemen killed in Mumbai were Marathis.
2) WEAK & CORRUPT POLITICIANS:- Pratibha patil – our president Mrs. Pratibha Patil – the cosmetic head of state? So much has happened. Mumbai and India was attacked and at war and Mrs. Patil was not to be seen anywhere? Why? Shivraj Patil – The worst home minister ever seen , he was more bothered about his dressing then the terrorist attacks on India. RR Patil – Mr Patil spoke and behaved as if he was featuring in a pulp Bollywood movie, during the 60-hour-long terror attack and its aftermath, with irresponsible sound-bytes serving as dialogues,” Clown, what happened to your statement “goli ka jawab goli se doongi”? Vilasrao Deshmukh , and the list goes on
3) LACK OF ENTERPRISE:- Inspite of all the opputunities available you sont have a single Industralist from the state who has been able to create jobs at a mass level. There are many parts in Maharastra where shop keepers close from 12 noon to 4 in the evening and treat customers as if they are doing a favour by selling to them, when outsiders are more successful in competing with these incapable people they are beaten up. In most organisations in Maharastra the most incompetent people are generally the Marathi Manoos who were hired because they were easily available and are able to retain there jobs because of the support from local politicians.

This is not a simple problem. A weak society influenced by paranoid cowards, completely detached from reality, confused and megalomaniacs like Raj Thackeray has the potential to completely destroy the country to take india to fragmented pre-1947 india , which was a period of intense repression from foreign forces where we saw large scale genocides, large scale destruction of hindu temples and blatant conversion of temples into mosques.

How Low Can Raj Thackeray Go

Sharmila Thackeray , Wife of Raj Thackeray is busy forwarding an SMS these days. It reads like this:

“All those who had lost their lives while saving this city are Marathis. MNS workers are busy donating blood, helping police for rescue operations and lifting bodies.”

Pathetic.

Shame on all those who call Raj Thackeray a Leader.

Locals hold 90% jobs in Maharashtra

According to the Maharashtra government’s own records, there are about 1.6 lakh units across micro, small and medium industries which together employ 10.86 lakh people. Of these, 91% of the non-supervisory jobs and 97% of the supervisory posts are held by locals.

Atleast this data should be enough for Raj Thackeray and his “Gang” members to drop their bogus claims that north indians are taking jobs away from Marathi Manoos.

The Crisis of Identity continues…

I will take a step back to do some thinking on the “Sons of the Soil” concept.

AD 1947 – The great Indian nation stretching from the Karakoram ranges to the Arakan Yoma ranges was being divided. Religion formed the major criteria for partition – Hindu or Muslim. Muslims in the sub-continent had acquired an identity – being a Pakistani, which was different from being one amongst the few million Indians.

AD 1952 to AD 1961 – Potti Sriramulu dies in a hunger strike. He wanted a separate state for the Telugu speaking community, free from Tamil hegemony. Nehru assures of separate statehood. The Indian nation is divided into states based on Language. Every Indian had one more criteria to identify oneself with –Language.

AD 1979 – A commission headed under Parliamentarian Bindheshwari Prasad Mandal was established to identify the socially and educationally backward, and finally ends up suggesting affirmative action practice under Indian constitution to backward communities. Mandal Commision ends up giving us one more characteristic to identify ourselves – Caste.

One should not forget that we are already born with 2 characteristics the whole world recognizes – Color and Sex.

Nature divided us on the basis of sex; the world divided itself based on race, and color. We then divided ourselves on the basis of religion, language and now caste. How further can I go, to identify myself uniquely?

But hey… as I ask myself this question, one cranky guy has opened up a can of worms – Son of the Soil.

Now what is that? How do I identify myself with a particular soil?

I just reached a point of frustration.

Can’t I just lead my own life? Can’t every common man live a life without being bothered to prove his identity & his loyalties?

Why do you need to classify me as a Southie or Northie? Why do I need to identify my loyalties to a particular state, a Bihar or a Maharashtra?

Is it hard being just an INDIAN?

The Crisis of Identity

My Origin – Tamil Hindu Brahmin, My Parents are from Kerala. I Speak Tamil, Malayalam, Oriya, Hindi and English. My Passport says “Republic of India”.

Born in Lucknow (U.P.). Studied in Rourkela (Orissa). Studied in Trichur (Kerala). Studied in Bhubaneswar (Orissa). Worked in Cochin & Calicut (Kerala), and all other places around here. Worked in Bangalore (Karnataka). Worked in Kolkata (West Bengal). Worked in Hyderabad (A.P.). Worked in Chicago (IL, USA) & Santa Clara (CA, USA).

Well, does this look like a resume of some sort?

Hell… NO – This is not a CV or Resume. I am just trying to figure out my nativity. I am trying to answer the question – I am the son of which soil?

After the rhetoric being drummed up by politicians about the “son of the soil” concept, I have had a few more questions.

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?

Raj Thackeray Cake Controversy

Raj allegedly cut a cake bearing the word Bhaiyya in Hindi on his birthday on June 14 in Mumbai – a video clip of which was leaked out Friday. he video clip shows him making two diagonal slashes across the cake, instead of gently cutting it in the traditional fashion

What is more surprising is his party vice president came up with this explanation

The word Bhaiyya on the cake probably meant that Raj Thackeray was like the elder brother of the person who presented the cake to him, and “it should not be construed that we are against North Indians.

What a Wus

A Nation Divided by Politics

“What’s the difference between north Indians and Indians. All of us are Indians,”  Justice B N Agrawal and Justice G S Singhvi

I have been writing about Raj Thackeray and MNS for a while now. His admirers call him a savior who has brought out what common Maharashtrian is feeling. Some also want him to become the next CM of Maharashtra. On the other hand his critics call him a murderer, a politician who wants to divide India based on “regionalism”. 

Lets first look at what our constitution states:

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, have solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST, SECULAR, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE, social, economic and political; LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship; EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

Two things really caught my attention 

1. Socialist – Which means everyone has equal right and opportunity. And

2. FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

Here is what our directive principals states: 

The State shall, within the limits of its economic capacity and development, make effective provision for securing the right to work, to education and to public assistance in cases of unemployment, old age, sickness and disablement, and in other cases of undeserved want.

Why is it wrong for someone from Bihar, UP to come to a better city for a better opportunity? Why would someone beat him just because he is trying to create a future for himself? 

Is Maharashtra the only state facing mass migration of Bihari workers, and middle class professionals? People from Bihar have also migrated to Punjab, Delhi . Why is a Bihari In his own country being treated with the kind of  disdain with which the British treated Indians when we went to England to find employment in the 1950s.

As for the language issue , As per CHAPTER I.—LANGUAGE OF THE UNION

343. (1) The official language of the Union shall be Hindi.

 Get me a law that states

1. “Beating people is OK when a job was not advertised in local newspaper” .  or

2. “It is OK to terrorize prominent people (Read Bachchan Family) based on the language they speak”.

3. “Start beating up people just because they are migrating from one state to another “in their own country”.

M.A. Jinnah had also raised a similar issue back, when he demanded a separate state due to inadequate representation of Muslims in India. India made a mistake back then by giving in to his demands. Though till now MNS has not demanded a separate state but it is working on similar lines.

I always thought that the term “Indian” was a single race, but now we are hearing other races like, north Indian, South Indians. Where did this come from?

We should accept the fact that it is not possible to have full employment. Most economists believe 3-4 % unemployment is about the best an economy can achieve . We as Indians should consider:

1.      Creating more cooperative financial institutions which provide credit at reasonable rates to the unemployed youths and promote self employment

2.      Creating institutions which provide high level skills to the unemployed that would make them competitive.

3.      Creating a state funded unemployment welfare assistance program. Unemployed youth should be encouraged to take up community work in order to receive benefits from the state.  Trust me if our government can come up with money to write off farmers loans, then it can very well come up with money to fund such a program.

4.      Joining the Army. Fight terrorist rather than fighting your own countrymen.

“At times we find that people say that we speak a particular kind of language, we are born in a particular state and so we should be given preference over others. That approach is really a narrow minded approach,”- Shivraj Patil
