A Realistic View on Growth of Online Business

Online business has been developing very well in the Westernized World and it is going to stay there. Traditional Eastern sector of the World is much larger than the Westernized masses, indicating a huge potential for growth of online business. It is an optimistic view but not the realistic one.
Online business needs more trust between sellers and buyers than that needed for traditional direct transactions. Therefore, it is not the population, potential or possibility of the market that matters for growth of online business but it is the mutual trust between buyers and sellers that works in online transactions.
Business people of the Western World have proved themselves fit for reliability, hence they are reaping good harvests on entering business online. This is not the case in the Eastern sector of the World which is highly segmented, hence need be understood segment-wise.
First level of segmentation is urban-rural, wherein rural segment, making about 60 percent of total Eastern market size, is totally blind for developing online business. Online business community has been very realistic in keeping this segment out of their view of the market, so far.
Second level of segmentation is born out of economic levels of people with vast diversity. About 30 percent of urbanized population comprised mainly of business-people, government employees and employed in the West or in prosperous Middle-East countries, have easy-going lifestyles for being richer than the rest of the population, hence make the real potential for developing online business. For various reasons like easily earned money (Government employees), being too-much busy in their routines (business-people), having rich inheritance, etc this segment hardly bothers for even trust-worthiness of businesspersons they deal with. They even don’t mind if cheated in some transactions for their consideration of cheating being a part of human life.
In some Asian countries with thick population density, like India, even rich-urbanized segment makes a huge market for initial growth of online business, but is not going to be enough forever. Saturation would become visible sooner than that may be expected now. It is therefore needed right now to understand what blocks the way of online-business growth into other segments of human population. For this study ahead, the focus would be on India as representative of the Eastern World.
Coming back to trustworthiness of businesspeople, it is in for dipping deeper than already existing low level. Since growth of business-houses has been through illicit supports of politicians in power, character of politicians has been inspiring them to be likewise. I take up a direct experience of mine to exemplify my above-said viewpoint. My friend in USA suffered some inconvenience in her online connectivity due to renovation work in that area by the service providing Company. To compensate for the inconvenience, the Company offered discounted rates for two months for their services to all their customers in the area. In India, I have been a customer of Jio Digital Life for about a year. Through my four recharges during this period, I have been paying for unlimited voice calls but not even a single voice-call has been materialized through their networking service for which I subscribe to Vodafone service which works only after my reaching rooftop of my home. I reported this matter to Prime Minister’s Office in February 2018 for their blind support to Jio, they forwarded my complaint to Bombay office of Jio. A Jio representative spoke to me assuring improvement in their services soon, but the status of service remains the same even today. How can I ever trust Jio people in my life.
In India, though no business sector can be said to be working reliably, Mobile Phone services, Medicinal and Health products, and Dairy Derivatives are the worst hit sectors by character crisis in businesspeople of the country. These products and services are available in acceptable quality only for super-rich customers who don’t bother for price-tags. Whole population can’t be that way, hence the crisis of trustworthiness is going to stay forever blocking expected growth of online business.
It is for warning the individuals relying on growth of online business, that they must be well-prepared with an alternative much before the said saturation in online business hits them.

Reality of Hinduism in India

I was born in a so-called Hindu family, studied and pursued Engineering profession, worked as an Engineering Consultant and as an Author, researched through Vaidic scriptures to trace out real history of the land. Presently at 70, I am studying Vaidic Sanskrita and Aayurveda to find ways of extending human lifespan to above 200 years and practicing the researched prescriptions on myself with very positive results.
Historically, my family belong to Agrawals who came here from Athens (Greece) when our peace-loving democratic state, the first in the World, Acropolis was ruined and taken over by Philip, father of Alexander, under a plot hatched by Plato. On arrival here, we merged our identity into Deva community led by Vaidic scholarly Puru couples – Brahmaa and Saraswati, Raama and Seetaa, Vishnu and Lakshmee, along with Ganesha, Shaaradaa and Lakshamana. We worked together to develop the land into a Nation without any religious and so-called Godly strings hence hence followed what is now known as atheism. Word ‘atheism’ is a derivative of the word ‘theo’ which is the Latin word for ‘deva’ race.
Then came here religious people Yadus as preachers of Judaism (Yahoodee) religion, Assyrians, Yavans and Dorians to invade the land and establish their rule here after killing our scholars and warriors. The first Assyrian batch reaching the land was Shankar with a group of women on buffalo backs. He sold the women to local lords, established himself as Aadishankaraachaarya, designed now-called modern Sanskrita language, distorted and misinterpretted Vaidic scriptures in modern Sanskrita, and became religious leader of Dorians (Dravidas) reaching the land as Alexander’s soldiers. He established Sanaatana Dharma.
Yadus, Yavans and Dorians used to kidnap, rape and abandon local women, thus producing a huge number of illegitimate children on the land. These were guided to pursue professions of beggars, astrologers, domestic cooks, religious preachers, and performers of religious rites, etc in dull-saffron dresses. Later, Judaism and Sanaatana Dharma were merged under banner of Hinduism and the society was divided into four sections (varnas) – saffron-robed as Braahmana, militants as Kshatriya, businesspersons as Vashya and local residents as Shudra and other poor classes. Opponents of this system were totured and killed by this first invasion of Hinduism on the land. Under fear, many adopted Hinduism under duress.  
During the Hindu invasion, Vishnu and Ganesha went underground for reappearing later as Vishnu Gupta Chaanakya and Chitra Gupta, respectively, and established rule of Gupta dynasty with Vishnu’s son Chandra Gupta Maurya as the Emperor. India became The Golden Bird of the World under Gupta’s rule of about 400 years.
After this until the first Islamic invasion in about 900 AD, India had been under rule of innumerous sectoral kings who forced the whole population into Hinduism. Muslims ruled the land in parts for about 800 years while remaining parts had been under rules of various Hindu kings. These rulers were thrown out of power by British who ruled the land until 1947 with heavy hands but developed some systems under their governance.
Indian National Congress took over reigns of power from British without even knowing how to govern the huge Nation. A haphazard Constitution was framed and applied in 1950 which doesn’t represent people’s aspirations and expectations. This Constitution though prescribes secularism for the governance but has miserably failed in making India a secular State. Every political leader of independent India has been carrying a tag of some religion, caste or even a family, against which the Constitution provides no remedy. At present, India is being ruled by Hindu fanatics, which has proved itself more destructive to common Indians than even Islamic fanatics and British empiricists.
Thus, the majority of Indian population seems to be of Hindus, but all these persons are not Hindus truly. Yes, Braahmans and Kshatriyas have been truly Hindus for their vested interests of ruling the land and reaping richness without working for it. Vaishyas, Kaayasthas and Goldsmiths belong to Deva community without tag of any religion, hence are not Hindus. Dozens of castes marked as Shudras by Braahmans have been the worst sufferers under Hinduism for their subhumanly treatment by other Hindus. They never adopted Hinduism willingly and are the first to revolt against Hinduism under inspiration from Dr Bheemarao Ambedkar. Some other local residents now marked as Lodhas, Gurjars, Maalis, etc have been producers of wealth in their fields. These castes and all sorts of craftspersons whose work has been exploited by two upper classes of Hindus too have never been willing Hindus.
Hindu classification of society into four varnas is distorted version of Vaidic prescription in this regard spelled in Manusmriti which prescribes the four professions to be chosen by individuals based on their personal capabilities and choice while the Hindu prescription provides for imposition of one’s profession based on their parents’ profession. This provision also says in numerous ways that a Brahman would always remain revered even after committing some crime, but a person from any other class won’t be revered whatever capabilities they may acquire. Recently, Maharshi Mahesh was the second in command of Jyotirmatha but was not appointed its Shankaraachaarya on death of the the then Shankaraachaarya for he coming from a Kayastha caste. A Braahman was searched and appointed Shankaraachaarya of Jyotimatha, one of the four highest religious bodies of Hinduism established by Aadishankaraachaarya in four corners of the land.
Hindu classification divides the society into two major sections – non-productive and productive. Braahman and Kshatriya belong to the non-productive section to be the supreme guide of the society, and to rule over the people through their militant strength, respectively. Productive section consists of Vaishya in control of trade, agriculture and cattle-breeding while the Shudra and other local castes and tribe would provide workforce to Vaishya community. In real terms, the lowest class people are there to create wealth through their work while Vaishya community manages the creation of the wealth. Braahman and Kshatriya are not supposed to do any productive work but enjoy their lavish lifestyles on wealth created by the other section.
Since imperial days are gone forever from the World, no religion can be forced on any person. Hence only the willing Hindus belonging to Braahman and Kshatriya factions of the society remain Hindus with all others stepping out of Hinduism to avoid their exploitation by the Hindu supremos.
Present Hindu governments at Center and in many States carries an agenda for reestablishing the above-said classification of society and make India a Hindu nation wherein non-Hindus would be converted to Hindus or ejected out of the land. Under Hinduism, majority of population would be treated as Shudras for serving Braahmans and Kshatriyas, as has been the tradition of Hinduism. This is going a boomarang earlier than expected by any estimate that would be devastating for the nation.      

Present political leaders in power forget that Shudras along with some other backward classes of India are the real sons of the soil while all others, particularly so-called superior classes of Hindus, have arrived here from foreign lands. Hence, Hindus have no right ti impose Hinduism on all the people of the land. Nobody would ever like to be a Hindu for being treated like a Shudra.

Three Dismal Years of Modi Government in India

Through Parliamentary Elections of 2014 of India, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) under leadership of Narendra Modi was elected to power in New Delhi. Main issues raised by BJP leadership for impressing voters were price rise and black money deposited by Indian in foreign banks. During the 3 years of Modi Government in office, prices of all industrial products have doubled while those of agricultural produce have seen marginal rise due to government controls. It is notable here that industrial producers are mostly urban while agri-producers are rural. This in turn means that during the said period, urban population has enriched itself while the rural population has slided back on the prosperity scale. Industrial products are purchased and used mostly by urban population composed of employees of the Government of thse of organized sector whose income levels are exhorbitantly higher than those of the rural people, hence there is no considerable impact on their prosperity level. Rural people using and consuming highly-priced industrial products have been mercilessly chiseled by high prices of industrial products.
Government controls prices of agricultural produce for these falling under essential commodities, so that survival of poor sections of population is not endangered. Under this background and pretext, there is no logic for rise in prices of industrial products. This gap in prices escalation has made rich people richer and poor people poorer.
During election campaign of 2014, BJP leadership have expressly promised bringing back of India’s money in foreign Banks within 50 days in office. Even Ram Deva also organized a camaign to this effect. After coming to power, the issue is conveniently forgotten, and no progress has been made in this matter even in 1000 days of the Government in office. Ram Deva getting multiple benefits of BJP in power has also forgotten the issue. Thus, Modi Government has miserably failed on both the counts of their election campaign promises. 
In 2014, Samajwadi Party (SP) government was ruling U.P. State with heavy hand promoting criminals and interests of Muslim community only. BJP leadership, during 2014 election campaign had promised to dismiss SP government in U.P. immediately on coming to power in New Delhi. Since, Narendra Modi has friendly relationship with SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadava, said promise of election campaign was forgotten. It is notable here that, India’s two most corrupt politicians are Mulayam Singh of U.P. and Sharad Pawar of Maharashtra. Narendra Modi has very amicable relationships with both of these. This reflects on honesty of the present Prime Minister Modi.     

Currency Fiasco
Modi Government put all their energy in demonetisation of high value currency notes in circulation, throwing the whole financial system of the country out of gear. This was promised that demonetization would be beneficial to the nation and her poor people, and that the problems faced by common people for cash scarcity in Banks due to demonetization would be taken care of withing 50 days ie by December 31, 2016. While there is no cash shortage in urban Bank branches, account holders of rural branches have been suffering for cash scarcity even today, after 6 months of the promised date.
Due to no-cash in rural Bank branches, account holders have lost faith in the whole banking system, hence avoiding depositing their savings in the Banks and getting their money transferred through such Bank branches. So far, the government has not shown a single benefit of the demonetization. Of course, favorite Bank Branch Managers have been greatly benefitted by demonetization through using their power of converting black currency notes for heavy prices.        

Jan-Dhan Yojana
Modi Government launched Jan-Dhan Yojana prompting every citizen to have a Bank Account and deposit their savings in the account. This way, it is claimed by the PM himself that the government collected Rs 110,000 millions due to this scheme. Money so collected was loaned out to big business persons like Malya, Ambani, Adani, etc. After the said deposits by the poor people, Bank branches were declared cashless through demonetization, so that the depositors failed to get back their own money to meet their needs. Again, rich were made richer, and poor poorer.
With Jan Dhan Yojana, number of accounts in every Bank branch was doubled, but the Banks refused to increase their staff to serve the increased number of account holders, hence quality of service by Bank branches has considerably degraded.  

Digital India Dream
PM Modi is bent upon linking every citizen with Internet for various purposes of life, and he is pursuing this goal at war scale, without knowing that the country not yet have the infrastructure required for serving this purpose. In my village only 150 km from Delhi, like 40 percent of India’s village, still doesn’t have network signal strength suitable for an Internet connection. I am constrained to go to my rooftop after midnight hours whenever I wish the connectivity. Even then, I fail many times. Only possbility of connectivity is through BSNL Broadband with a landline phone. I had been their customer for 3 years but never got satisfactory service from them. Secondly, my ID used to be grossly misused by local exchange staff for connecting others with the Internet with bills to me. Actually, BSNL staff in rural exchanges have been at their places for decades with a cot in the exchange for sleeping during daytime. They don’t want any customer for BSNL.

River Sand
Due to misrepresentation by the Government of India, Supreme Court considers even taking river sand under Mining Act, and have imposed strict punitive measures on people for taking some sand for building their houses. As a result, local police finds it a good source of their illicit income because people essentially need the sand for which they must to the police personnel, or get arrested. A by-product of this is that price of river sand has quadrupled durig the last 3 years.
Sand is regularly produced by rivers in huge quantities as these descend from mountains to plains, and it is spread throughout the length of the rivers. People have been getting the sand from nearby rivers since known past without causing any damage to the ecology. If the sand is not removed from river beds, it would block flow of the river forcing it to change path. Hence, there is no need for any regulatory measures on getting sand from a river.
Now Governments are issuing licenses to traders for digging out river sand at far-away places and selling to the consumers. With this arrangement, the consumers are forced to pay a heavy price to contractor and for long distance transport, or steal the sand from a nearby river bed and pay a bribe to local police. Whole exercise of the Government is quite foolish, anti-people, and causing ecological damages.

What a Government is supposed to provide to people are adequate public health services, unifor education, speedy justice, work at their usual residence, and public services like roads, electricity gridlines, etc. But Modi government has not paid any attention to these in their 3 years in office, but have involved in creating controversies through intruding into private lives of people.

What is 'Yoga' Truely

India has only a few days back celebrated Government sponsored International Yoga Day to impress upon people of the World importance of Yoga. But on display everywhere in the celebration was physical or mental exercises with pomp and show, which have nothing to do with true spirit of Yoga.
The word Yoga first appeared in a Vaidic scripture Shreemadbhagawadgeetaa' (popularly known as Geetaa) wherein Krishna preaches to Arjuna about Yoga on the battle field of Mahaabhaarata. The Poetess Lakshmee of the scripture has maintained that what is mentioned about Yoga in the scripture is what was preached to Arjuna by Yogeshwar Krishna. Hence, there can be no more authentic source for understanding spirit of Yoga.
In its Chapter 2, the scripture contains the under-given 6 verses about Yoga, whose meanings in English follow the poetic matter in Vaidic Sanskrita language -

Those established in Yoga perform leaving out consideration of earning money. What is to be achieved and the achiever becoming one, the unification is called Yoga. (48)
Those keep away from performing yet focus on earning money are foolish like Buddha's followers (monks), involving in ungratefulness for achieving their desired results. (49)
With application of mind, there is no need to consider whether a deed is easy or difficult to perform, but by fully involving in performance, which becomes the Yoga of combining skill with the performance. (50)
Those seeded with performance, such scholars leave out consideration of results with use of wisdom. Such persons achieve status of being free from bindings of their birth (with respect to 4 Varnas (classes) - Braahmana, Vaish, Kshatriya and Shudra) and go on performing without attaching their name or Varna (class) with the performance. (51)
When wisdom goes across play of attachment to a particular class, then the person loses sense of the source (inspiration for performing) and that flows out (performance) of it. (52)
Thus is achieved the state of Shruti which keeps the performer unwavering in the performance. In such a stable state, mind of the person is said to be involved in Yoga. (53)
Essence of these the most authentic statements on Yoga is that involving fully with performing on a task without any consideration of results is Yoga. This leads to skilful performance whatever be the nature of the task and class of the performer. In this state, termed Shruti, the mind of the performer is set in Yoga. Thus Yoga is neither a physical exercise nor a mental stillness, but doing an undertaken work, whatever it may be, with full dedication.

What is Indian Scripture Geetaa and its Real Preaching

Full name of the Indian scripture Geetaa is 'Shreemadbhagawadgeetaa' with meaning 'Poetic Composition by Lakshmee about Krishna-Arjuna dialogue on battle field'. Lakshmee was the most powerful woman of Deva community as wife of Vishnu (also known as Vishnu Gupta Chanakya, the founder of Gupta Dynasty Empire in India and the first person of Vaishya community in India. In Deva organization, Vishnu was in-charge of economic management of the Nation, called Dhritraashtra in Vaidic literature. At this point, it must be noted that both Raamaayana and Mahaabhaarata carry fake stories about those times.
After Jesus Christ was crucified in Israel by the then rulers on a fake charge of being an illegitimate child, his sister Mariam took care of his almost dead body, applied balm for recovery and brought him to India to join Deva community. To hide the real identity of Christ, he was hidden behind an elephant mask and renamed Ganesha. Mariam got married to Visnu and was renamed Lakshmee.    
Though Vaidic period began earlier with development of Indian subcontinent  by Deva community under leadership of four brothers - Brahmaa, Raama, Vishnu and Lakshmana, the Devaasura struggle manly began with artificial birth of Krishna and ended with his elopement into his under-sea abode Dwaarakaa. Objective of Krishna was set to establish his perpetual rule over Indian subcontinent for which total destruction of Deva community was essential in his view.
In the meantime, a son named Chandra of Deva scholar Shakya Singh misguided and raped Ahilya, wife of another Deva scholar Gautama and made her pregnant. For this crime, Chandra was ousted from his kingdom by his father. Chandra joined hands with Krishna and resettled himself on Shri Lanka Island, declared himself as Buddha and later established Bauddha religion.   
For establishing his psychological and political rule on Indian subcontinent, Krishna preached religion as carrier of a phantom God, declared and established himself as an incarnation of God through his trickery, joined hands with Asura people who had arrived here from Assyria under leadership of Shankaraachaarya,  called Paandavas to the subcontinent to kill Deva scholars and claim a share in the kingdom, invited Alexander (Indian name 'Sikander' referred to by name 'Shikhandee' in scriptures) to invade the subcontinent, and ultimately managed a battle for killing of all warriors of the subcontinent with exclusion of himself.
Killing of Deva scholars and warriors masterminded by Krishna before the battle had weakened Deva strength, hence Vishnu called in Darius II, ex-Emperor of Aaryaanaam (now Iran) defeated and ousted by Alexander on his way to Indian subcontinent, renamed him Duryodhan, to fight the battle against Asura junta. Thus Aryans came to subcontinent. Aryans had originated from banks of river Kura, hence are referred to as Kaurava in Indian scriptures.           
It was the battle between Deva and Asura junta, but called as Kaurava-Paandava battle, for which Krishna brainwashed Arjuna through a long dialogue to participate. Scripture Geetaa is about this dialogue but is not limited to it and carries detailed study of the subject matter from Deva community point of view. It is written in Vaidic Sanskrita on which no research has ever been carried except by the Author to understand and translate the Vaidic scriptures. Hence, what is really provided in Vaidic scriptures has never been discovered prior to this Author.
Each of Vaidic scriptures, except Vedas authored by multiple Authors, including Puraanas authored by Ganesha, Shreemadbhaagavat, Shreemadbhagavadgeetaa and Bhaavaprakaasha authored by Lakshmee, Arthashaastra by Vishnu Gupta Chanakya, deal with three subject matters simultaneously.
I have seen a few translations of Geetaa and found those to be highly erratic for the translators' force-efforts to match their translations to stories they got from fake stories depicted in Mahaabhaarata, the worst of which is that Krishna was an incarnation of God. Thus, fakeness has crept into translations of Geetaa for which even original text has been distorted through wrong partitions and statements attributed to wrong persons.
Some important falsehoods of currently prevalent translations are as follows -
  • Dhritaraashtra is not name of a person but that of the Nation on the land of Indian subcontinent.
  • Sanjaya is not the name of a person but the word means 'confrontation'.
  • At the battle field, Paandavas had a very strong presence as compared to that of Kauravas. All the Paandavas and their sons had due share on land of the kingdom before the battle. It was Krishna who was bent upon the battle for killing all the warriors of both sides on the land at that time without directly involving himself and his clan in the battle.
  • Hrishikesha is not a name of Krishna but of a different person - king at that time and father of Vishnu, as is evident from the first verse of Vishnupuraana.
  • Krishna's preaching to Arjuna on the battle field is provided in the scripture, but every of its point is strongly rebutted by Hrishikesha in his dialogue with Arjuna at the very battle field. He supported Arjuna for not fighting the battle and exposed falsehoods in preaching of Krishna to Arjuna. Hence, Krishna is not the hero of the scripture but only a villain while Hrishikesha is the hero.
  • Vishnu and Yavan Emperor Alexander were also involved in the battle, nowhere mentioned in any of the false translations, whose only objective has been of establishing Krishna as incarnation of God.
  • Even so much publicized preaching of performing without any expectation is negated by Hrishikesha. According to the scripture, it is the same whether you focus on performance or the result, the other automatically and simultaneously comes into focus.
