India against corruption the agitation a mass movement

This is a post to inform people about the agitation of Anna coming to an end, peacefully.

The 12 days ordeal of Anna Hazare is going to end on 10:00 AM IST on 28th August at Ram Lila Ground. This is the winning of the people of India against the selfish ruling of the politicians of India.

The world in the present day monitoring violence and thousands of people are dying around the globe. India has been proving the power of nonviolence ever since the days of its independence and has won number of wars against the truancy of the rulers.

The hunger strike of Anna started from the Tihar Jail on 16th August 2011 where he was imprisoned after the Delhi Police arrested him against his call for agitation to fight corruption. These 12 days saw history being repeated at the Ram Lila Ground when thousands of people gathered there to be a part of a peaceful agitation after 1975 when Jai Prakash Narain gave a call for agitation.

The government has promised to finally make arrangements to get the Jan Lokpal bill passed by the Parliament of India in the interest of the people of India. Let’s wait and watch what the government finally does!

Promises are made to be broken: Dr. Manmohan Singh PM India to Anna Hazare

This is a post to intimate people of the promise that the PM made from the floor of the Parliament but could not keep to his promise.

The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) is in the ruling chair for the second time in a row. The country has seen the biggest scams in this duration of 8 years. Most of the time the government is making false promises and playing games with the public of India, befooling them of the law making procedures, or sending few ministers to jail to prove its credibility.

The voice of Anna Hazare raised the question of Jan Lokpal bill on 5 April 2011. To break the fast of Anna the government finally agreed to make the bill effective by introducing it in the Parliament. Instead the government placed the draft in front of the Standing Committee. The Standing Committee finally drafted a new draft of the Lokpal bill and tabled it in the Parliament on 8th August 2011.

This was opposed by the Anna Team (Civil Society) and he gave a call for hunger strike on 16th August2011 (read the link).

Yesterday, the PM of India Dr. Manmohan Singh assured from the Parliament that there will be discussion on the draft of Anna Hazare and the bill will be passed only after proper discussion and satisfaction of the people. The discussion was to take place today but eventually it could not happen to the reason that the discussion has to be intimated to the members of the Parliament through notice which was not done. In haste the Congress party asked its members to make the move for the procedure and they did it. The bill will be discussed under section 193 of the Indian Parliamentary procedures which allows discussion but does not permit for voting.

Is the Congress befooling the people by playing the corrupt games again and again?

Public has to understand the games of the government and vote it out of power next time if they are not getting the proper Jan Lokpal bill passed in the Parliament.

Scam since 1947

This is a post to intimate people that there are number of scams being held in India but no punishment has been given. Let the Jan Lokpal bill come to tackle the situation wisely.

The desire to have all the lavish life and to make their families happy people think the money can do all for them and thus fall for constituting scams. Money is considered to be the prime solace provider. Money is considered to be the supreme power which can fetch all the happiness and thus the race to have more is run till the end of life.

Every country in the world has had scams and punishments are provided to the scam creators. But in India the scams master minds are all the politicians and they lead a respectable life. Congress has been leading the country for 52 years in the 64 years of independent India. This party was initially the major party which was leading India in the freedom struggle. On the day when India got independent Pt. Nehru became the Prime Minister of India as a resolution was passed by the Indian National Congress (INC) that the person who will be the President of the INC on the time of independence will be the PM of the new nation. An urgent session of INC was called in Lahore and Maulana Azad was removed from the post of the President to INC and Pt. Nehru was made the President instead of him. This was the last political scam which slave India saw and made way for the new PM to milk the country from the very first day.

There are number of scams which are conducted by the Congress people and none have been punished by the court of law. Indira Gandhi was accused by the Allahabad court for irregularities in the election, and Jai Prakash Narain demanded her resignation in this regard. She imposed emergency to suppress the voice of the people, this happened in 1975.

The country has been facing the problem due to these scams and Anna Hazare is now raising voice against the corruption. But still the politicians are trying to suppress the voice of the millions of Indian and the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) is not paying much heed to the demand of the public. The reason to this attitude is the major portion of the Congress in the UPA and they have always milked the country for their selfish motives. The government is saying that the demands of Anna are baseless as the Lokpal bill is already on the table of the Parliament. The Lokpal bill which the government has drafted is having many loop holes as the one most important is; provision for the punishment to the person who is found guilty in a scam, the draft say no punishment. This shows that the Congress has ill will to punish the culprits as it is neck deep in the corruption.

Here the most important thing is that the scams are the root causes which happen due to the connivance of the ruling party. It is the country which has to face the problems at large and if the money which is involved in the scams is honestly used then there cannot be any problem in the country.

Rights of the people Anna Hazare

This post is to inform people about their rights and also request them to exercise their rights peacefully.

People of India are hero worshipers. The make the politicians to be the Gods. The politicians are elected by the people and made to be their representatives in the law implementing and making machinery i.e. Parliament. But the people have been providing chance to the selected politicians from their respective areas without ever asking questions.

Anna Hazare has taught people of India to question the politician who is their representative in the Parliament. This is the fundamental right of the people and they should exercise it openly. This call from Anna has created a situation of unrest for the politicians who have been milking this country every now and then.

People taking our agitation all over India

People have been visiting the homes of the MPs and the MLAs and asking them to clear their stand on the Jan Lokpal bill. The politicians are using force to remove the people from their door steps, only few are welcoming the public and listening to their demand and issuing statement on the issue.

People are not using force, all the agitations are peaceful and people are just leaving a rose flower on the door step as a token of Get Well Soon. This action has been taken from a Hindi film Lage rahoo Muna Bhai. The villain of the film is presented with flower by every person of the city, this is a way of making the stubborn person feel ashamed and come to the right track in life.

People visited house of Parnab Mukherjee Minister of Finance and left rose flower there. The crowd comprised of female (mostly college girls), children and men. The police rounded up few of the agitators alleging that they were using slogan with unparliamentarily language.

People visited the house of Kapil Sibal Minister of Human Resource Development, who has been replying to Anna’s action in his peculiar befooling manner. The people who agitated outside his house said that they have made a mistake by voting him to Parliament, and next time they will not make such a mistake.

In Mumbai the people visited the house of Priya Dutt, Gurda Kamat, and others to show their unrest. Priya Dutt did comment that she is with the people and is no way supporting the Lokpal bill which is being tabled in the Parliament. She said that she is with the people of India and respects their demands to remove corruption.

People are requested to carry their Identity Cards with them as the police may ask about your identity and in case you don’t have one you can be rounded by the police as a precautionary measure. This is another way of not letting people to be the part of this agitation.

Anna Hazare insulted in India respected in Pakistan

This is a post which is about the influence of Anna Hazare on the people of Pakistan.

Anna was in India Army
Anna Hazare a person who dedicated his life to fight against corruption was initially not allowed to start his fast on 16 August 2011 and was arrested as precautionary measure.

He was arrested from Mayur Vihar area of East Delhi and taken to the West part of Delhi, as a plot to disrupt his war against corruption. His team the Civil Society members were also arrested. The place provided to him to start his hunger strike–Jai Prakash Narain Park area–was under Section 144. Many people went there and were arrested and taken to the Jarnail Singh Stadium. 15,000 people consisting of males, females and children were taken into custody. It was in the evening of the same day the government released Anna Hazare from jail but he refused to leave the Tihar Jail compound unless his demand to continue his agitation was not given to him.

Arrangements being made at Ram Lila Ground

Arrangements at Ram Lila Ground
The government kneeled and provided him Ram Lila Ground to continue his hunger strike which he had started from the morning of 16 August (while this blog was being written Anna has been on hunger strike for 135 hours). The magic of Anna worked on the nerves of the common India who has been surviving under pressure of corruption.

MCD workers made to work
Anna accused
Manish Tewari of the spokes person of Congress I the ruling party of India commented on Anna as he was “neck deep in corruption”. He further added, “We want to ask Kisan Baburao Hazare alias Anna that with what face you talk of fast against corruption. You are involved in corruption from top to bottom and we are not saying say this, this has been said by a probe panel which was headed by a former Supreme Court judge”. He was commenting on letter that Anna had sent to the PM stating that his United Progressive Alliance was adopting “dictatorial stance” and playing with the Lokpal bill draft and also said that the PM should not unfold the Tricolour at Red Fort on the Independence Day. Manish Tewari alleged that Anna has insulted the Tricolour also by saying so to the PM.

On the remark of the US State Department spokesperson, Manish Tewari said that the irresponsibility shown by Anna has provided a chance to the foreign countries to comment on the Indian government. “He has insulted the Parliament also by talking to the PM in unhealthy manner,” said Tewari.

Agitation in Amritsar
 Anna inspired
Anna has again brought the word nonviolence and hunger strike into fashion. This is the word which was made popular by Mahatma Gandhi during the India freedom struggle. Now the one know as to be Gandhi of the present time has used the same tool.

Mr. Jehangeer Akhtar a 68 year old Pakistani businessman has planned to go on a hunger strike in Islamabad from 12 September 2011 against the corruption which is engulfing the whole Pakistan as well. Akhtar said, “I was impressed by the system and style of Anna Hazare and thus planned to use the same tool to fight corruption in Pakistan also”.

People of all religions voice against corruption
Akhtar is also an activist and wants the Pakistan Parliament to pass an anti-corruption law as the one which is being planned in India.

It is not the first chance when Akhtar is planning to take up the cudgels for the cause. He has sat on a hunger strike for 22 days in Islamabad for the sake of the traders. In a second he went for hunger strike for eight days. He said, “If the public of India is demanding a Lokpal bill then the government must listen to the voice and respect the feeling of the people of India”.

Light will reduce the darkness of corruption
Anna Hazare is not only a force which has made the people of India to stand in unity and voice against corruption which is due to the politician of India.

Anna Hazare supported by Dabawale

This is a post to inform about the movement of Anna Hazare against corruption.

Dabbawale is is an organization which has been supplying food to the people of Mumbai.

Dabbawala is an organization which has been a case study in many universities of the world.

Today in the span of 120 years the Dabbawalas have called for a strike in compliance with the agitation of Anna Hazare.

This shows that the common people of India are feeling that corruption should be ended and India should become a Corruption Free Country.

Today the Dabbawala have conducted a protest march in Mumbai towards Azad Maidan.

At Delhi Anna Hazare came out of the Tihar Jail at 11:46 am IST. Anna climbed an open truck which was decorated for him with flowers and the Tricolour (Indian Flag). For Tihar Jail he along with the mass crowd went to Mayapuri Chowk. It was planned not to disrupt the traffic of Delhi thus from Mayapuri Chowk he will be going in a closed car toward Ram Lila Ground.

The route was not disclosed about the traveling of Anna but it was made clear that he will first go to Raj Ghat the resting place of Mahatma Gandhi for his blessing and then he will pay homage at India Gate to the great freedom fighter of India at Amar Jawan Jyoti and then he will move towards Ram Lila Ground.

Now the movement of Anna has become a mass movement which has made the government to consider the public of India seriously.

Anna Hazare we are with you

This is a post in appeal to Indians all over the world to help in bringing change in India and make India a Corruption Free Country.

Corruption is all over the globe. Many of the minister of the world have been punished or under trial for practicing corruption. This is indirectly affecting the people and their life style is on the downward slope.

In India Anna Hazare has become the voice of the people. We all want a corrupt free society and it is a blessing in disguise that Anna Hazare has started this mission.

To be the part of this agitation just write a line here with your name and basic details so that we can prove to the government that Anna is just not alone but every India, no matter where he/she is staying is a part of this agitation.

Anna has proved to the government that the public is supreme. His agitation has started to work as the cleaning of the Ram Lila Ground is being done which was only done at the time of Dussehra. Now the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) workers are geared to make the ground perfect for the People of India.

Youth of Today: Anna is having all the hope from you and make is dream which is yours also come true.

We are not violent but we are the people from the land of peace lovers like: Gautam Buddha, Lord Mahavira, Ashoka, Guru Nanak, Nizamuddin Auliya, etc who all advocated the word nonviolence and peace. And our peaceful agitation will make the government to kneel down.

REMEMBER: If we suppress our voice now, then never can we talk about corruption. It is NOW OR NEVER.

Anna Hazare protest in Delhi

This is a post to inform people regarding the winning of Anna Hazare over the Delhi Police.

Delhi Police kneeling before the public of India which is a signal to the peole that a mass movement can do wonders even if the politicians are just against them.The drama of the ruling UPA government has come to an end, which is the winning point for the people of India.

The Delhi Police has agreed to the following conditions of Anna Hazare permiting him to sit on the hunger strike at Ram Lila Ground Delhi.

The conditions which the Delhi Police has agreed in regard to Anna Hazare's Satya Grah (hunger strike).
1. The hunger strike will be allowed for 7 days and can be extended after the situation analysis to be positive.
2. Loud speakers will be allowed till 10 PM at night which is permissible for any individual in Delhi.
3. There is no restriction on the number of people coming in to join the agitation, but not more than the people which can be accomodated in Ram Lila Ground.
4. Doctors of Anna and government will be monitoring his health on day to day basis.
5. Delhi Police will accomodate the vehicles which will be reaching at Ram Lila Ground.
6. No untoward incident will be allow, if there is one the agitation will be called to be ended by the Police.

This is the same place where Baba Ramdev called for his agitation and was removed forcefully by the Delhi Police in the curtain of night.

Today the government has kneeled in front of the nonviolence tool which is still effective again. This is the first sptep towards the successful movement of the Indian masses led by Anna Hazare for a corruption free India.

Ram Lila Ground is situated only a kilometer away from the Jai Prakash Narain Park where Anna was allowed to start his hunger strike but Delhi Police imposed Section 144 to dirupt his agitation. Anna was arrested yesterday morning by Delhi Police just when he was moving out for the venue of his hunger strike. He was released last night at 8 pm IST but he remained in the Tihar Jail as a protest and is continuing his hunger strike from there.

India Gate memorial for freedom fighters
He gave a call to his supporters to gather in the historical India Gate (memorial for the freedom fighters who laid their lives for India freedoom struggle) at 4 pm IST to conduct a peace march from there till Jantar Mantar. Thousands of people from all walks of life gathered at India Gate paying respect to the only one leader who has promised them a Corruption Free India.
Public reciprocating to the call of Anna Hazare 
Thousands of people gathered at India Gate on call of Anna
Digvijay Singh said yesterday, "One 15000 people with Anna cannot portray the entire Indian population". Now what he has to say on this action when the Delhi Police has accepted the demands of Anna Hazare leading the whole India?

Anna Hazare arrested before his hunger strike

This post is to inform the people about the misuse of power by the Delhi Police in arresting Anna Hazare before his proposed hunger strike in Delhi.

Delhi Police allowed Anna Hazare to go for a hunger strike at the Jai Prakash Narain Park in Delhi on 13 August for his proposed agitation on 16 August 2011. The condition was that the agitation will be allowed for only three days and the number of people should be only 5000.

Using its supreme and tactful power police imposed Section 144 which is banning assembly of 5 people at a particular place. This is what the police is for which is always propagating its slogan “With you for you, always”. The act of Delhi Police proves that the police are only to safe guard the corrupt and anti nation action of the corrupt politicians and it has nothing to do with for the public.

The British were better than the present Indian government who always permitted the people of India to orgainse agitations and rallies against the British government. The present UPA government is the worst and the most corrupt government which India has seen since Independence.

Anna Hazare was arrested from his Mayur Vihar residence which falls in the East district of Delhi Police zone. But the police have taken him to the west district which shows the corruption and misuse of power by the police.

Delhi police allowed the Slut Walk in Delhi but is not permitting Satyagrah a call by Anna Hazare for a corrupt free India.

Down with the ruling government of India! This agitation is becoming a mass movement and if the situation is not considered by the government seriously, might lead to bloodshed and a civil war in India which is the state of most of the countries around the globe.

The Union Home Minister should be held responsible for all the planning and must be the first person to be grilled under the Jan Lokpal bill.

Nonviolence gift from India

This article is to promote the word nonviolence with its literal meaning and effects. 

Nonviolence a simple word of English language which can do wonders. This word was used by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi to attain independence for India through ahimsa. He knitted India in to a mass movement and the British were forced to provide independence to India on 15 August 1947.

Meaning of Nonviolence
The meaning of the word nonviolence in English dictionary are:
1.   : abstention from violence as a matter of principle; also: the principle of such abstention
2.   a : the quality or state of being nonviolent : avoidance of violence
      b : nonviolent demonstrations for the purpose of securing political ends
at one place it is the philosophy and on the other hand it is the behaviour of the mass movement.

The effects of nonviolence
Many versions of the general philosophy of nonviolence bear an activist element, which is related to attaining social change. The best example of this is by the Father of the Nation of India Gandhiji through his Gandhigiri—name given to his style of nonviolence. He was impressed by the teachings of Imam Husain–the grandson of Prophet Mohammad PUH–which his confessed at the time when he started his non-cooperation movement with dandi march taking 72 members with him. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Husain’s principles can lead India to glory”. “He took 72 of his men to fight against the tyrant ruler and same I am doing following his foot-steps”.
His nonviolent action is also referred as civil resistance.

As introduced to the world nonviolence has with the span of time become the most powerful tool for social protest which does not lead to bloodshed but is peaceful and effective.

Saare Jahan Se Achchha: gift for Independence day

This post is a gift to Indian all over the world on the eve of 64th Independence day celebrations. This post has the lyrics of the song in Hindi, Urdu, Roman with translation. Also audio and video links attached. Happy Independence Day!

  Saare Jahan Se Achchha 
Music has all the power and can do wonders which the science is proving today.

But India the land of music has proved it much earlier that music has the power to change the nature and God also likes good music. Miyan Tansen (popular as Tansen) one of the greatest musicians of the world from India has the power to call for rain through his Raga Megh Malhar, control animals and it is also said that at times when Tansen used to sing in the courts of Akbar the great the candles use to light-up on their own.  

During the freedom struggle music became one of the main motivational force bring all the patriots eventually.

Thus is the year 1904 a weekly journal Ittehad printed a poem on 16 August which became Tarana-E-Hind. This song knitted the whole of India in one rosary and still is the most popular song after 107 years. This song is ode to old Hindustan of which Bangladesh, Pakistan and India were on the whole one part. Though this song was written as poem for the children but with the span of time has become the Anthem of the People of Hindustan. The song was sung by the lyricist Allama Mohammad Iqbal at the Government College, Lahore (now part of Pakistan) as Saare Jahan Se Achchha... (Urdu:سارے جہاں سے اچھا). Iqbal the lecturer at the Government College, Lahore was requested by Lala Har Dayal to preside over the function and instead of delivering a speech Iqbal sung this song. This song was published in Bang-i-dara an Urdu book published in 1924.

This song has not only has elegiac qualities but has made the Hindus and the Muslims to unite in greater extent. This song was sung by Mahatma Gandhi many times when he was imprisoned in the Yerawada Jail in Pune in the 1930s.

Here are the lyrics as a gift on the eve of Independence Day

In Urdu script:

سارے جہاں سے اچھا ہندوستاں ہمارا

ہم بلبليں ہيں اس کی، يہ گلستاں ہمارا

غربت ميں ہوں اگر ہم، رہتا ہے دل وطن ميں

سمجھو وہيں ہميں بھی، دل ہو جہاں ہمارا

پربت وہ سب سے اونچا، ہمسايہ آسماں کا

وہ سنتری ہمارا، وہ پاسباں ہمارا

گودی ميں کھيلتی ہيں اس کي ہزاروں ندياں

گلشن ہے جن کے دم سے رشک جاناں ہمارا

اے آب رود گنگا، وہ دن ہيں ياد تجھ کو؟

اترا ترے کنارے جب کارواں ہمارا

مذہب نہيں سکھاتا آپس ميں بير رکھنا

ہندی ہيں ہم وطن ہے ہندوستاں ہمارا

يونان و مصر و روما سب مٹ گئے جہاں سے

اب تک مگر ہے باقی نام و نشاں ہمارا

کچھ بات ہے کہ ہستی مٹتی نہيں ہماری

صديوں رہا ہے دشمن دور زماں ہمارا

  اقبال! کوئي محرم اپنا نہيں جہاں ميں

معلوم کيا کسی کو درد نہاں ہمارا

In Hindi Script:

सारे जहाँ से अच्छा हिन्दोस्तान हमारा
हम बुलबुले है इसकी ये गुलसिता हमारा ॥धृ॥

घुर्बत मे हो अगर हम रहता है दिल वतन मे
समझो वही हमे भी दिल है जहाँ हमारा ॥१॥

परबत वो सब से ऊंचा हमसाय आसमाँ का
वो संतरी हमारा वो पासबा हमारा ।२॥

गोदी मे खेलती है इसकी हजारो नदिया
गुलशन है जिनके दम से रश्क-ए-जना हमारा ।३॥

ए अब रौद गंगा वो दिन है याद तुझको
उतर तेरे किनारे जब कारवाँ हमारा ॥४॥

मझहब नही सिखाता आपस मे बैर रखना
हिन्दवी है हम वतन है हिन्दोस्तान हमारा ॥५॥

युनान-ओ-मिस्र-ओ-रोमा सब मिल गये जहाँ से
अब तक मगर है बांकी नामो-निशान हमारा ॥६॥

कुछ बात है की हस्ती मिटती नही हमारी
सदियो रहा है दुश्मन दौर-ए-जमान हमारा ॥७॥

इक़्बाल कोइ मेहरम अपना नही जहाँ मे
मालूम क्या किसी को दर्द-ए-निहा हमारा ॥८॥

Roman Transliteration

sāre jahān se acchā hindostān hamārā

 ham bulbulain hai is ki, yeh gulsitān hamārā

ghurbat men hon agar ham, rahta hai dil vatan men

 samjho vahīn hamen bhī, dil hain jahān hamārā

parbat voh sab se ūnchā, hamsāya āsmān ka

 voh santari hamārā, voh pāsbān hamārā

godi men kheltī hain is ki hazāron nadiyā

 gulshan hai jin ke dam se, rashk-e-janān hamārā

aye āb, raud, ganga, voh din hen yād tujhko

 utarā tere kināre, jab kārvān hamārā

maz'hab nahīn sikhātā āpas men bayr rakhnā

 hindvi hai ham, vatan hai hindostān hamārā

yūnān-o-misr-o-romā, sab mi gaye jahān se

 ab tak magar hai bāqi, nām-o-nishān hamārā

kuch bāt hai keh hastī, miati nahīn hamārī

 sadiyon rahā hai dushman, daur-e-zamān hamārā

iqbal ko'ī meharam, apnā nahīn jahān men

 m'alūm kya kisī ko, dard-e-nihān hamārā


Better than the entire world, is our Hindustan,

 We are its nightingales, and it (is) our garden abode

If we are in an alien place, the heart remains in the homeland,

 Know us to be only there where our heart is.

That tallest mountain, that shade-sharer of the sky,

 It (is) our sentry, it (is) our watchman

In its lap frolic those thousands of rivers,

 Whose vitality makes our garden the envy of Paradise.

O the flowing waters of the Ganges, do you remember that day

 When our caravan first disembarked on your waterfront?

Religion does not teach us to bear ill-will among ourselves

 We are of Hind, our homeland is Hindustan.

In a world in which ancient Greece, Egypt, and Rome have all vanished without trace

 Our own attributes (name and sign) live on today.

Such is our existence that it cannot be erased

 Even though, for centuries, the cycle of time has been our enemy.

Iqbal! We have no confidence in this world

 What does any one know of our hidden pain?
