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.

A Will from the Past to the Future via the Present


My dearest Grandson,
Since, you are yet to come into existence, I am leaving my long-cherished will with the present to be delivered to you on your coming into existence as a gift from a grand-father in due course of time. I wish that the present delivers it to you by just a medium of delivery without making any change in the script. This wish is in-spite of my knowledge about manipulative nature of the present for me having no other option to reach you. I think the contents of my letter to you would undergo some changes in-spite of my genuine wish for its delivery in its originality. Therefore, I request you to read 'in between the lines' of what is delivered to you in my name to get the spirit and leaving the litter.
My son 'present' is my creation, so I have no right to blame him for his misconduct, if any. I own full responsibility of what he is today - right or wrong. I had my own compulsions of omissions and commissions, in upbringing him to this level. After all, none of us - me the past, my son present and you the future, is free to do to our respective likings without circumstantial constraints. You would realize it when you enter into life.  
What I am sending to you is my experience to enable you to learn some lessons and gain knowledge out of it without having a first-hand experience. Learning from others' experiences has been an ever- great wisdom and would remain so for you too.

Religions

During my lifetime, my worst suffering has been from violence in the names of so-called merciful religions and gods. Imagine, what a great mental agony I would have suffered for this intrinsic contradiction of violence and mercy. Phantoms of religions and gods have been created and deep-rooted in human minds during my time for misguiding innocent and vulnerable people for pushing them into wars with each other through religious fanaticism. I failed in remedying this malady, and the present too seems to be failing in this. Now, it is only you who has the responsibility of curing the evil. I know it is a difficult work even for you, but still, please do your best.
I am proud to have a noble beginning of modernity in human life which has gradually deteriorated to insanity. This golden beginning of mine is preserved in scriptures under mysterious covers of religious fanaticism spread through them through misrepresenting their contents to generally ignorant and innocent people by the cunning religious preachers. While the fact remains that these scriptures have nothing to do with religions and their main concerns are human health and history.
The time gap of their creation to the present has deposited rust of changing languages and other human traits making their understanding difficult. I own full responsibility for this crime on the scriptures. You may undo the wrong with them through your sharp sword of logical creativity, leaving behind shades of me and the present over them. But there lies a hidden treasure in them for you to discover.

Super-humanism

What I mean here by super-humanism is up-gradation of humans above the present level at any time. As compared to the humanity you inherited from the 'present', I had witnessed super-humanism in my golden past of human history when the greatest of humans so far - Theos and Acropols, managed affairs for humanity. The Gupta dynasty under the greatest of Theos - Vishnu Gupta Chanakya, too, rebuilt super-humanism after a downfall of humanism under reign of Mahapadmanand, an agent of Alexander of Macedonia. After that there has been a great degradation of human values for the rulers having no value for morality. People become what the rulers are and want them to be. The rulers I have been witnessing lately and you would be witnessing in your times would have their vested interests in a degraded humanity for ease of ruling and exploiting such people. But still, I hope restoration of super-humanity some day, some way.

Super-humanism is not a trait to be found in common people but only in a few selected people making a class of their own - within the common people but quite different from them. These don't make some distinct group but remain mixed the common people, but are easily distinguishable by their uncommon deeds. I hope you would have some such people in your times.

Seneca on How to Fortify Yourself Against Fear and Misfortune – Brain Pickings

Set aside a certain number of days, during which you shall be content with the scantiest and cheapest fare, with coarse and rough dress, saying to yourself the while: “Is this the condition that I feared?” It is precisely in times of immunity from care that the soul should toughen itself beforehand for occasions of greater stress, and it is while Fortune is kind that it should fortify itself against her violence. In days of peace the soldier performs maneuvers, throws up earthworks with no enemy in sight, and wearies himself by gratuitous toil, in order that he may be equal to unavoidable toil. If you would not have a man flinch when the crisis comes, train him before it comes.
