Bharati wept

Came across this extraordinary article on Aamby Valley, a monstrosity, not so much because it is a haven for the rich, but because it represents a private city largely outside the control of the Indian state. Read Randeep Ramesh's shocking piece in the Guardian, "A Tale of Two Indias", where he talks about the felling of 11000 acres of prime forest lands in the shadows of the Sahayadri hills for a gated city surrounded by an electric fence to keep out other Indians (if those living inside can be called Indians in any real sense).

Meanwhile, the article continues, there are Indian farmers selling their cattle, their lands, even their kidneys, to stay alive. See also P. Sainath's article about farmer suicides in Vidharba (in the same state as Aamby Valley) crossing 400 the same day the Sensex hit an all time high, "Where India's Brave New World is Headed".

Nor is this a phenomenon unique to Maharashtra. Read "Indian Villages for Sale" by Devinder Sharma. This is not about some parched outpost. It is about Punjab, the granary of India for fifty years. The villagers had exhausted other alternatives to raise money to live, and decided to sell their village.

The poet of Indian nationalism, Subramania Bharati, wrote that if a single person went without food we would destroy the world. That was in Brtitish times. Fifty years of freedom have robbed us of all sensibility, let alone sense.

Shame on all of us, and shame on Manmohan Singh and this false god of globalization.

How to hold on to what you have

Many people in India,under influence of english medium media and
their foreign and domestic agents,have for last 8 years have been lead
to belive that foreifn exchange,foreign money,foreign companies and Stock exchange
is something good for India -a sad misunderstanding to the detriment of Indian economy,people
and Indian nation; while for much benefit to our foreign enemies and their
Indian agents(especially english media).

Though the evidence was there of how Latin America was subjugated to
American-british interests,still India did learn nothing .FOr that the
indian agents for foreign enemies-especially the english newspapers and thier sympathisors are
mostly responsible for that. Remember how so called liberalization started
in India under Rajiv Gandhi when it was talked that foreign based Indians be given special
priviledges to bring money to India.These propagandists today are not
happy that Mr.Sinha is also lookin to NRIs today because these propagandists really wanted
to pave the path for Foreign companies ownned by non-Indians and that is why
the Economic Times today saisd of '98 budget as Swadeshi budget wanting to tap money from VHP peoples
living in foreign lands.It the same Economic Times who was very enthusiatic of Rajiv Gandhi's initiative
to ease NRIs entry tnto Indian market. When apprehension was raised at that time that encoraging NRIs and
all those talk of liberalization will pave the wave of foreign invasion and lose of Indian self sufficiency; then
that argument was pooh poohed.Ofcourse they were never interested in NRIs and wanted India to be slaved to foreign
money and influence. From '84 to ''89 ,the period of Rajive govt. the Indias foreign exchange reseve got depleted
, not only that ,india trade deficiet doubled.And all that liberalization was done to increase export.
To increse export wat was the formula of these foreign agents? To increase Import
of rubbish things! Naturally the foreign exchange crisis came,as it was to come and as it was wished for by
English media in India and abroad. TO solve that,instead of retracing the
steps from disastrous policy, this Narsingha rao,Manmohan singh and The financial secratary Ahullawalia(who thse three are
really the Anglo-American agents in India) brought enslavement of India which was hailed as great
step by Indian english media and ofcourse by thier spiritual masters Anglo-american press(the nubmer one
enemy of India). Thet when that govt. was in minority with out mandate and was even illegal!
^ years hance and inspite of having seen that none of premise promised was ever fullfilled,on
the contraiere opposite , still the propaganda machinery of English media is to prooceed with same,or rather more ,of
that poison of foreign dependence in economy defence and sacial policy.
Even Bajpaiye govt.;instead of declaring Narsingha Rao, Manmohan singh and Ahulluwalia(who is still allowed in Finance minisrty!)
as traitors to India and as foreign interest agents, is treating these traitors as respectable opposition.

Manmohan singh,former finance minister, what is he, if not clear by now with his previous anti-india policy had been clear ,then it should become cristal clear with his recent questioning in Rajya Sabha on 15 th dec. The prime minister was giving statement on nuclear talk with america(which he should not have entered into with america anyway). As Indian policy has been defence and incoherent,He was telling about minimum nuclear deterent that India must have to which this manmohan singh asked what is the limit of minimum nuclear deterence. As if to open all the cards and play into america's hand, Manmohan singh was playing part of American interest' agent. It is the same manmohan singh who some congressmen are saying is more keen than the govt. to get lateset Insurance and patent bill( to sell out to anglo-american interest)passed by the Parliament.
Instead of waiting for world situation till 2002(which is bound to change) Manmohan singh is keen to see that America's interest is served quickly. Tragedy is that this sort of person, and likes of JASWANT singh-foreign minister-who can not win a single mandate from people in democratic election,are the people made to hold important ofiice asnd ofcourse Anglo-americans like that because deviod of public support and democratic mandate, such peoples are ideal agents of anglo-American interest.
All those so called reform under manmohan singh -which was supposed to do exactly opposte of what it did(example of latin america was already there) is still beieng pursued on the same logic under this American spy. Even the lesson of east asia has not been learnt. Those who talk big and bostfill in India must remember that far from being some economic power , If pursuing the same sell out of India, the country will take 50 years to reach the prosprity enjoyed by brazilian elite but will have debt and total loss of sovernity in economic and foriegn policy with in 10 years.

By the way in response to American spys'(manmohan singh)question as to what constitute Minimum nuclear deterence for India the Prime minister should have assured that it would be such that in case of attack, as in bagdad, by the anglo-American goons,India will have effective nuclear and convention weopon to hit at targets in england and united states. Only ,and then only will have India effective deterence.

_ Why is India so keen to sign rubbish discriminating treaty?_

Before the govt. of india and the self respect lacking elite of
India start any seroious discussion with anybody(more so with india's enemy
like u.s.a.)on nuclear treaty ,it must declare what it has in mind and
ask for peoples' mandate in way of refrendrum.After all in u.s.a. the presidents have been elected on hawkish pro-nuclear
programme and even a third rate country like u.k. had elected three times her prime minister
on pro-nuclear issue. These same west nations preach others to be pacifists. If it was good enough
for them then it is good enough for India to ask her people directly on such a matter of national security.
Foreign policy is not done on basis of personal friendship.Who is this Jaswant singh to talk about our nuclear disarmament?
Those who talk of economic benefit are eluding themselves.America want to unarm India and others
exactly so that it can impose his exploitative(anglo-saxon and not western)economy.In that model of
anglo-saxon econmy lies this basic principle-Support your own profit(swadeshi) and take from other countries the
goods at minimum price.That is why they support theier own rotten ,viral infecxted beef(with no self of foreign meat);
not buy Japenese cars unless manufactured in their country. That is also why imf is very keen to devalue others currency so that these anglosaxpons country can buy foreign goods cheap and pay little for it.
Todays' world is full of economic ruins by those who kissed the poisoned hands of america and u.k.Remember India did have very healthy trade
balance with west before colonization not by selling much but by selling at high price.So signing nuclear treaty against Indian interest
would for ever enslave India to tose countries like usa and u.k. who have always been anti-india. Not that they like pakistan or for that matter any europen country
. This is all anglo-american plot to take over the world. Unless India and others realize it and act accordingly, they are in for long duration of slavery.
This not an alarmist scenerio, it is the real picture and Indians are kidding themselves if they
think india has a single friend unless herself.Do you so relationship to
even your cousins if they are powerless and thus poor? We ar not even their cousin.
People of India must demand refrendum on this secretive treacherous talk.


april 1998

The statement of Defence minister that india will constitute national security council
and then if that advises the govt. for nuclear option;thenthe indian govt. will think of it;is a sad
reflection on defence preparedness of india.That country has already been talking about keeping
nuclear option open for more than a quarter of a century and wittered away the initial lead.
It has made the country neither strong nor made any friend. Talking will not do -there is not much
time left before loosing even that option.India must make nuclear bomb now.If the govt.wants otherwise then let it
say then in the next election people will decide to elect one who will make the bomb.Defence can not be left just like that.The
prime duty of to protect people against external aggression-and india has natural enemies not only in Pakistan but also much further away.
The nuclear option is tio ensure that India does not have to succumb to any blackmail.And India must not heed to those big brothers(goons)aho did not want even
France to test nuclear weopon in '95 because they do not want any other country to get independently strong.Praesident Chirac rightly had sais,before
testing,that France needs to test to counterbalance the anglo-saxons. Therefore France rightly did not heed to their propaganda.India
must also do the same.
One thing more-talking all this nonsense talk of economy.No time in history has any country enjoyed
prosperity for long time with out strong defence.Either thier riches is taken away-as recently happened with Japan and east Asia
or as it happened many times with India.On the other hand many poor countries have enriched themselves either throgh military victory
or cheating(as in case of anglo-saxons).As Asians are not that capable of being that cheat, They have to be independently military strong.
Let Pakistan also have the same -it does not matter. China shows the way.And what is that? Indepencence,self-respect and national interest. Russia became poor when voluntarily ,on western propaganda,
she aboned military power on advice of west to convert ''tanks into tracters''. Why did west not do the samewhat it preached to Russia?
Instead it goes on incresing arms sale after ruing one competitor(Russia).
On that topic the BJP must also campaign against what Narsingha rao and Manmohan singh did to India(destroyed
Her economic independeceand retarded missiles programme)and against Mulayam singh Yadav for having weakened Defence so much that there was a virtual mutiny in
the Army. Also people have press this govt. to go for nuclear deployment.No excuse is to be entertained.

India must deploy nuclear bombs and missiles now-not for war but to avert war becauese that is ultimate deterrent.

Well.... all I wish to say is "The only reason you have a computer an internet connection and the opportunity to write what you wish" is primarly because of the fact that you have been able to benefit from the liberalized and global policies initiated by our then FM Manmohan Singh.

Let us all use the opportunities we have to do what we wish better than how it has been done already. In 1991 our country was BANKRUPT. 150 billion dollars in debt, No infrastructure, no money to even pay our interest to the world bank... Today 2006, we have 20 somethings earning 20-30k, living well, eating well, our country has been able to wipe out our debt, infact have national reserves of over 160 billion dollars and even give loans to the World Bank itself.... Isn't that a transformation you are proud of? If you arn't then there must be something seriously wrong.

Sure there can be arguments that the wealth has not been spread evenly... I surely agree with that. There is a need for us to find ways to be more INCLUSIVE and grow both our rural and urban sectors but lets not get overly critical of policies just because some areas of our economy are under threat.

All our problems aren't created by the Media as you would like everyone to believe. They are also dedicated and motivated Indians like you and me. Most Indian English Media is owned and operated by very patriotic and self-concious Indians.

It would be great to know what kind of a job are you doing? How your life and that of your family has been affected by the "detriment of Indian economy"... We have the freedom of speech but lets use it after verifying the facts and knowing about the enormous changes we have seen in 13-14 years that we have never seen before. Gone are the days when we need to wait 2 years to get a telephone connection let alone an internet connection. Gone are the days my father struggled almost till his retirement to even afford a small house of his own.

Today merit rules, yes there are people who will dispute that but its better than the policies we had. At least I can tell you from my own experience that I have single handedly (with the opportunities I have) been able to make a difference to my family... and thatz proof enough for me... that Liberalization and Globalization Works.
