Top Guns of Congress were
after Narinder Mady for some years first for not disclosing his marriage to Jashodaben,
now a retired school teacher. She was under paid by some private school and
lived in a single room tin shed without electricity, toilet, Kitchen and bath before
media found her and made her marriage to Narinder Mady public – as reported recently
she was probably given regular job now getting Rs.14,000 per month pension.


 


And Snoopgate exposed Mady
deploying top police officials to track a young girl ‘Madhuri’ who was in
relationship with Mady as alleged by DG Police.

It
shocking Mady came out of polling booth with marked finger attached to party
logo which poll code violation – he caste his vote in Gandhinagar constituency
and it is Unethical to disclose the candidate choice.


 


‘Pamphlets,
Posters and Party Symbols are Strictly Prohibited around polling booths – even
on way to polling booths no solicitation of voters is permitted.’ Thus this is
Shameless Violation of Election Code. He could be disqualified.


 


But
was even more shaming at every PAID TV Interview he would prominently display
poll symbol.

Mady
doesn’t understand law, technology, development, economics and stats and is
congenital liar.


 


He
is absolutely DULLARD.

Political Turn
Who Will Bell The Modi Cat to Cat On The Run


April29, 2014


 


The dream of RSS BJP to rule
India
through its CEO candidate Narendra Modi has already evaporated for multiple
reasons.


 


BJP strategy of Shoot &
Scoot was working well, some
‘C’ grader like Meenakshi Rekhi would make
some Corruption Allegation and Congress didn’t know what to do. But appointing
Narendra Modi as PM candidate with Communal Back Ground, Battling Criminal
Cases, Damning CAG Reports, and Fake Growth Claims exposed BJP fully.


 


Pre Election time Modi was
jetting around India and roaring challenging opposition parties but mainly
targeted Congress political situation was who will bell the Modi Cat but in run
up to the multi stage polling schedule which could have favored money rich Modi
has turned against him.


 


A fortnight from counting
day Modi Cat is on the run chased by all Political Mice, Mouse and Rat. Even
Priyanka Gandhi not contesting elections is going after Modi Cat.


 


Abusing and insulting
minorities, dalits and OBCs and regional leaders without counting short term
and long term losses and gains who were a decade earlier were NDA alliance
partners under Vajpayee Regime are all sworn enemies now.


 


What hurt the most was his
hollow and fraudulent claims on ‘Development & Governance’ – Voters across India found out Gujarat
is Malnourished and Ambani and Adani owned state, Low Wages, Polluted Industry and
a scam state.
 


 


Even the Opinion polls
are silent for sometime though not banned.


 


Analysis of latest political
situation is very bleak for Narendra Modi. BJP won 115 seats in 2009 Lok Sabha
seats 90 were from BJP Strongholds (Karnataka, MP, Gujarat, Bihar, Chhatisgarh,
Jharkhand, and Rajasthan) – if Elections are held today in these states BJP
will not get even 60 seats though polling is already over in around 400 seats
to the advantage of BJP – final count from these stronghold states are expected
to be 75 out of 90 won in 2009. Securing 200 seats from rest of India to form
stable government from 2009 seat count of 25 is definitely IMPOSSIBLE. BJP may
get 40-50 seats this time and final tally could be 125.


 


Modi dream was Magic
Mountain Ride
up few second and down few seconds back to the starting
point, 115 seats in 2009, 125-150 seats this time. If elections are held today
it may not be even 100.

 The

been the major encouraging factor for the perpetrators to indulge in

the level of enjoying the rape scenes in movies. 

SC/STs should find their own way in securing justice for them and their women.

have to take action !

To: Dalits Media Watch <PMARC@dgroups.org>



Dear Friends !
Greetings From NMLLJ !


Since yesterday after our appeal to arrest Yoga Trainer & businessman Ram
Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev under SC/ST ( POA) Act1989 and take action against
police & administrative officers for non performing their duties under
SC/ST (POA) Act1989 section 4,
​ ​

We had received lot of responses from across the world. We could have divide
responses in four categories are :

 
1.    Strong
support & solidarity to the appeal !
2.   Ramdev
has already tender his apology so to end up this issue !
3.  
His 
intention
  & CONTEXT was different !
 
We welcome and  are thankful for the support &
solidarity from all of agreed section of the society. We appeal you all to
please take this issue forward for the wider interest of equality based
democratic society committed to the constitution of the country.
 
We just wanted to clarify that we do not have any personal
enmity or intention against Yoga trainer Ram Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev.


We firmly believes that his statement was highly derogatory and abusive towards
Dalits community, Dalit women and against every women of the country as his
statement has shown  attitude of hierarchy, patriarchy and casteist basis
on Brahmanism & feudal ideology.


His statement was not a political or referential statement but “purely
sexist comment against Dalit women” and women in general. He related
his statement with the marriage of Rahul Gandhi to emphasis his context.


It is general attitude and understanding of brahmanical and feudal mindset
people that Dalit women are easy to access without any opposition as they do
not have access in the justice tender system. Dalit women are biggest victim of
such attitude and mindset across the country.
 
It is general trend of KHAP PANCHAYATs particular in
western UP and Harayana to impose small fine and accept apology of the
perpetrator against sexual violence against Dalit women.
 
With all respect we wanted to raise that when brutal incident of
16th Dec2012 happened, the whole country has boiled and blocked the whole Delhi
unitedly demanded to hang perpetrator. When issue of Tarun Tejpal (Tehalaka)
came on light every one has rejected his apology and now he is in jail.


Now four Dalit innocent gang rape victims girls from BHAGANA ( HARIYANA) are on
indefinite protest at Janter Manter, New Delhi for justice from last four days.
People of Delhi, Civil society, so called national movement, human right groups,
social organizations etc are keeping silent and mum. Very few have come forward
with some symbolic and formal support.
 
So far only different Dalit groups are coming in support of
them. even in social site also we could not see any campaign or support from
the civil society on this issue. It is live example of insensitivity and
selective attitude basis of caste of the civil society of the country and in
particular of Delhi which stand mum spectator only.

It is unfortunate that people are ready to compromise with
regret (Not apology) of Yoga trainer ram Kishan yadav alias Ramdev with the
dignity and respect of women and in particular of Dalit women !

We appeal to all please do not be selective and specific basis
on caste and class particular in favor of perpetrator. Please do stand in favor
of victim of the caste !
 
Let Us Allow Law to Work In Favor Of Justice ! We are in opinion
that any lawful action against Yoga trainer Ram Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev will bring
a positive massage to the society.
 
We Demand That :
 
1.   
Immediate  Arrest Yoga Trainer & Businessman Ram Kishan
yadav alias  Ramdev under SC/ST (POA) Act1989 & IPC 509 Or Declare him
Absconder !

2TTake action against police & administrative officers for non
performing their duties under SC/ST (POA) Act1989 section 4 !

3.  
NHRC , NCW and NCSC have to take action !


Warm Regards !


​In Solidarity !​

[indiathinkersnet] Fwd: [The Moderates] Narendra Modi’s passive-aggressive communalism



The issue is too boldly written on the wall.
Modi/BJP/RSS
poses a unique and overwhelming threat to India, its secular-democratic
edifice, and thereby vast sections of its people - the “minorities” in
particular, and also all sorts of dissenters.

This election is going to decide whether he’ll be able to take over the reins. And have a go to reshape India.

Therefore it is so important, a veritable life and death question, to block his menacing onward march to Delhi.

The
rest we can keep debating, and also keep fighting the forces - as best
as we can, we despise, as long as Modi does not come to power.
It
goes without saying, even if we succeed in achieving our limited goal,
the Heaven will not descend on the Earth. In fact, far from that.
But we gain some breathing space and time to fight back.
And, that’s all.

That’s the very essence of the grim predicament we are right at the moment faced with.
There is simply no escape from that.

Sukla

Modi’s
model of development is very much a hindutva model with putting all the
marginalised sections in their place: on the top are Muslims, but
Dalits and women are not far behind. That is why Modi does not talk
about specifics: these will be on full display once the NDA comes to
power. The problem is in the last ten years the Upa govt has been so
callous in so many ways that it has provided the fertile ground for
Modi’s message.

Of course,Modi and the rss are far more aggressive on both crony
capitalism and communalism but the congress party’s deep complicity on
these twin issues cannot be ignored. While focus on Modi’s Gujarat and
the plight of Muslims there is much needed, the massacre of Sikhs in
1984 and the cynical way in which the congress-ncp government in the
last ten years and even before have protected shiv sainiks and the
police involved in 1992/3 riots in Bombay in Maharashtra makes me deeply
suspicious of the defence of congress as a secular party with all its
sins. And so far as crony capitalism is concerned, the bjp/congress are
very much together in its defence. Let us not be blind to these
realities in our hatred for monster Modi. That is the real dilemma In
this election.

[indiathinkersnet] Modi intended to influence voters, says furious Election Commission

http://www.ndtv.com/elections/article/election-2014/modi-intended-to-influence-voters-says-furious-election-commission-516388

AhmedabadA police case has been filed in Gujarat against Narendra Modi, the chief minister, and television channels who covered him as he emerged after voting in Ahmedabad.


“If
someone is threatened with a knife an FIR (First Information Report) is
lodged, all I did was show everyone a lotus,” Mr Modi said this
evening, reacting to the case against him. (

Mr
Modi, after casting his vote this morning, walked out of the Ranip
polling station in Ahmedabad showing his inked finger to the crowd which
had gathered around the polling booth. Later, when he interacted with
the waiting media, he brandished his inked finger along with party’s
lotus symbol. For the entire press interaction, Mr Modi kept on
displaying the party’s symbol. The powerful Election Commission says Mr
Modi, the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, has broken the law by
campaigning in a polling area.  



“I
can say that this time nothing can save the mother-son government…a
strong government will come to power,” Mr Modi said to the crowd at the
polling station, promising the defeat of the incumbent Congress which is
led by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. (
India Votes 2014: Full coverage)


“It
is evident from Modi’s tone and tenor that he made a political speech.
He intended, calculated to influence voting today,” the Election
Commission said.  



The
BJP, however, contends that the speech was not an organised press
conference. “We respect the Election Commission but Mr Modi did not
violate the code of conduct,” said BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi.  



The Crime Branch has been tasked to determine if that is correct.  


Congress
spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed accused Mr Modi of being “a serial
offender.” His party had earlier objected to the release of the BJP
manifesto on April 7, when voting in the nine-phase general election
began. (

89
parliamentary constituencies voted today. Among them was Vadodara, one
of the two constituencies that Mr Modi is running from. The other is
Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, which votes on the final day of the election
on May 12.



Under
Mr Modi, the BJP is expected to get the most parliamentary seats,
though forecasts differ on whether the party will get a majority.


9 mythbusters on 2002 post-Godhra riots











For those who have developed “selective and motivated”
amnesia about the truths of 2002 riots in Gujarat and are suddenly
buying into the myths being perpetrated by Narendra Modi’s PR machinery,
here are a few myth-busters to refresh your memory and perhaps your
conscience

  •  

Myth no 1: Post-Godhra violence was brought under control within 2-3 days by Narendra Modi’s government

Truth: “The violence
in the state, which was initially claimed to have been brought under
control in seventy two hours, persisted in varying degree for over two
months, the toll in death and destruction rising with the passage of
time.”


Source: Final Order of the National human Rights Commission chaired by the very respected Justice JS Verma, available here

Myth no 2: Gujarat Police acted fairly by taking action against rioters from every side

Truth: “We women thought of going to police and telling
the police as in the presence of police, the houses of Muslims
were burnt, but the police told us ‘to go inside, it is doom’s day
for Muslims”

Source: PW219
testimony which was admitted as part of Naroda Patya judgment that led
to conviction of Mayaben Kodnani, Narendra Modi’s cabinet minister who
led murderous mobs during 2002 riots. It is available here.

Myth no 3: No conspiracy by the Gujarat government; post-Godhra violence was a spontaneous reaction

Truth: “A key state
minister is reported to have taken over a police control room in
Ahmedabad on the first day of the carnage, issuing directions not to
rescue Muslims in danger of being killed.”


“Voter lists were also reportedly used to identify and target Muslim community members”

Source: Report of Human Rights Watch, April 2002, Vol. 14, No. 3(C). Available here

Myth no 4: Modi allowed a fair prosecution of those accused
in rioting and hence even his cabinet colleague Mayaben Kodnani was
convicted

Truth: “The modern day ‘Neros’ were looking elsewhere
when Best Bakery and innocent children and helpless women were burning,
and were probably deliberating how the perpetrators of the crime can be
saved or protected.”

“Law and justice become flies in the
hands of these “wanton boys”. When fences start to swallow the crops, no
scope will be left for survival of law and order or truth and justice.
Public order as well as public interest become martyrs and monuments.”


“From the facts stated above, it
appears that accused wants to frustrate the prosecution by unjustified
means and it appears that by one way or the other the Addl. Sessions
Judge as well as the APP (Shri Raghuvir Pandya, the public prosecutor in
this case at the time was a member of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP) and contested elections from Ward 20, Vadodara in the 1996
Corporation Elections on a BJP ticket!)  have not taken any interest in
discharge of their duties.”


Source: Supreme Court
in Zahira Habibulla H Sheikh And Anr vs State Of Gujarat And Ors on 12
April, 2004 CASE NO.: Appeal (crl.) 446-449 of 2004. Available here

Myth no 5: Narendra Modi never justified post-Godhra killings

Truth: “Responding to
queries regarding various statements attributed to him by the media, Mr
Modi denied citing Newton’s law. Nor had he spoken of “action-reaction”;
he had wanted neither the action (at Godhra) nor the subsequent
reaction. When we cited footage in Zee to the contrary (Annexure 4A),
there was no reaction from Mr Modi”


Source: Editors Guild Fact Finding Mission Report dated 2002. Available here

Myth no 6: Narendra Modi speaks only about development in his
speeches. Even after 2002 riots, his speeches were never laced with
communal poison

Truth: Narendra Modi’s reported speech: “For several
months, the opposition has been after me to resign. When I did, they did
not know what to do and started running to Delhi to seek Madam’s help.
They realised that James Michael Lyngdoh, the Election Commissioner of
India, is their only saviour.Some journalists asked me recently, ‘’Has
James Michael Lyngdoh come from Italy?'’ I said I don’t have his janam
patri, I will have to ask Rajiv Gandhi. Then the journalists said, ‘’Do
they meet in church?'’. I replied, ‘’Maybe they do.'’ James Michael
Lyngdoh came and visited Ahmedabad and Vadodara. And then he used asabhya basha (indecent
language) with the officials. Gujaratis can never use such language
because our rich cultural heritage does not permit it. Then he gave a
fatwa ordering that the elections can’t be held. I want to ask him: he
has come to this conclusion after meeting only members of the minority
community. Are only minority community members citizens of India? Are
majority community members not citizens of this country? Is the
constitutional body meant only for the minority community? Did he ever
bother to meet the relatives of those killed in the Godhra carnage? Why
didn’t he meet them? Why didn’t he ask them whether the situation was
conducive for polls? Why? James Michael Lyngdoh ( says it slowly with
emphasis on Michael), the people of Gujarat are posing a question to
you.”

Source: Reported speech of Narendra Modi, September 30, 2002. Available here

Myth no 7: Narendra Modi never applied for a US Visa (when it came to light that he was denied one)

Truth: “The Chief Minister of Gujarat state, Mr.
Narendra Modi, applied for a diplomatic visa to visit the United States.
On March 18, 2005, the United States Department of State denied Mr.
Modi this visa under section 214 (b) of the Immigration and Nationality
Act because he was not coming for a purpose that qualified for a
diplomatic visa. Modi’s existing
tourist/business visa was also revoked under section 212 (a) (2) (g) of
the Immigration and Nationality Act. Section 212 (a) (2) (g) makes any
foreign government official who “was responsible for or directly carried
out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom”
ineligible for a visa to the United States. 
The
Ministry of External Affairs requested that the Department of State
review the decision to revoke his tourist/business visa. Upon review,
the State Department re-affirmed the original decision.” 
This
decision applies to Narendra Modi only. It is based on the fact that,
as head of the State government in Gujarat between February 2002 and May
2002, he was responsible for the performance of state institutions at
that time. The State Department’s detailed views on this matter are
included in its annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices and the
International Religious Freedom Report. Both reports document the
violence in Gujarat from February 2002 to May 2002 and cite the Indian
National Human Rights Commission report, which states there was “a
comprehensive failure on the part of the state government to control the
persistent violation of rights of life, liberty, equality, and dignity
of the people of the state.”

Myth no 8: Vajpayee never asked Modi to observe “Rajdharma”, did not rap him for 2002 riots

Truth: “In comments which appeared to back criticism
of the state authorities, Mr Vajpayee said he would speak to political
leaders about allegations that they had failed to do their job.
“Government officials, political leaders, need to respond to the task.
The constitution guarantees equal rights for all,” he said.The state
government is controlled by the BJP, and the Chief Minister, Narendra
Modi, has come in for particular attack over the way the authorities
reacted to the violence. At the Shah
Alam camp in Gujarat’s commercial capital, Ahmedabad, Mr Vajpayee said
that the Godhra attack was “condemnable” but what followed was
“madness”. “The answer to madness is not madness,” he said in an
emotional speech.”The duty of our government is to protect the property,
life and honour of everybody… there is no scope for discrimination,”
he said in an apparent reference to allegations that local officials had
turned a blind eye to the killings.”

Myth no 9: It’s not sheer opportunism that well-known Modi-baiters like Smriti Irani, have today become his cheerleaders

Truth: “Smriti
Irani who unsuccessfully contested from Delhi’s Muslim-dominated
Chandni Chowk constituency in the April-May parliamentary elections,
blamed Modi for BJP’s recent electoral reverses. “Whenever people
mention Gujarat they only talk about the riots and try to corner the
Gujaratis on the issue. So, in order to maintain the respect that I have
for Atalji and the BJP, I won’t hesitate to take this step( of going on
a fast to seek Modi’s removal) ,” she said.”


Source: Times of India report dated December 12, 2004. Available here

These myth-busters took me just one hour to compile. So it’s quite
surprising that none of the stalwarts who interviewed Modi, (some of
whom saw the events of 2002 unfold in front of their very own eyes),
never counter-questioned him further and exposed the glaring gaps in his
“rebuffed” narrative. Much like Smriti Irani, I guess, each night they
must be saying to themselves “Hey Ram”….

Modi’s Public Demonstration of His Contempt for Indian Laws


[The notice issued by the Election Commission to the government of Gujarat is attached herewith.

The first two paragraphs:
“The Commission has seen the video recording of the address by Sh. Narendra


Modi at a meeting in Ahmedabad after he cast his vote today (30.04.14) in the morning.
From the substance, tone and tenor of the address made by Sh. Modi and the statements


made by him and the manner in which the symbol o’Lotus,, of the BJp was being
displayed by him at the said meet, thereby displaying to the public election matter by


means of television in polling areas going to polls today it is evident that the said address
was in the nature of political speech intended and calculated to influence and affect the


result of elections in the constituencies going to polls today, not only in Ahmadabad but
also in all other constituencies in the State of Guj arat andelsewhere in the country.



“2′ The Commission is of the view that by holding that meeting and also by

addressing the same today when the polling is going on in the entire State of Gujarat and
in different parts of the country, Sh. Narendra Modi has violated the provisions of


Sections 126 (1) (a) and 126 (l) (b) of R.P. Act 1951. Therefore, the Commission directs


under Article 324 of the Constitution and all other legal provisions enabling it in this
behalf that complaints/ FIR as the case may be, should be filed against Sh. Narendra


Modi and all Others who were involved in the convening and holding of the said meeting,
under the provisions of Sections 126 (l) (a) and 126 (1) (b). Further, if any restrictions


have been imposed by the competent authority in Ahmadabad under Section 144 of
crPC, then complaints/FlR should also be made under Section 1gg of Ipc.”]

Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi  Deposit
Loser’s Party Won 116 Seats Lost 170 Deposits


April 26, 2014


 


Character
of BJP is such that in spite support of Chaiwala to Dharamgurus BJP even in 2009
elections won just 116 seats but lost deposit in 170 seats.


 


In
1962 as JS BJP won just 14 seats but lost deposits in 114 seats.


 


Earlier
in 1962 there were few regional parties like JDU, BSP, TMC, AIDMK etc even then
BJP couldn’t make any progress.


 


I
can’t guarantee less than 150 seats but had INC contested 2014 Elections with
conviction and determined effort BJP could have been cut to 50 seats.


 


I
have attached 2009 results for national parties.


Worst Of Gujarat Scam State
& Mady Congenital Liar

years were drought years, since I took over there is no drought year’ was just
hours ago.

Gujarat Worst in World in Irrigation-Agriculture, Mady Lies EX.


 


As given in the Annexure – Gujarat was under Three Years of Drought Spell when he
took over in 2001 and since then there were 5 drought years when Food
Production declined. Only years were Very Good assisted by good even monsoon –
2007-08 and 2011-12.


 



Milk
Production Increase by around 56% in 10 years is assisted by say 200% and 60%

It
is a sad news that Vanniyar mob attack SC/ST cheri in Chidambaram after
polls. SC/STs must unite behind BSP, the most powerful movement of
social transformation. Backward communities instead of uniting with
SC/STs for political reforms are rallying with the stealth cult RSS’s
Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi. They utilise them during elections like scape
goats led by the poojari to the bali peet. There are used like use and
throw curry leaves. SC/STs are suffering because there is a belief that
they have no soul so that they could be harmed by the 1st rate souls.
Unfortunately the 2nd, 3rd, 4th rate souls have accepted them to be the
1st rate soul. The Buddha never believed in any soul. he said all are
equal. That is the reason why Baba saheb Dr. B.R.Ambedkar made them to
return back to Buddhism. The Constitution provides them all protection.
Only when the MASTER KEY is acquired by them all doors of progress and
development will be unlocked.

Sarva Samaj i.e., All Societies
including SCs/STs/OBCs/Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains
and Buddhists in UP trust BSP for clean administration and protection.

“Narendra
Modi is to UP’s  Muslims what Hitler is to Jews,” says Dr Mohibul Haq,
asst professor of political science in Aligarh Muslim University. “True,
there is fear of scared stealth cult RSS’s Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi Modi
because of his hatred, anger, intolerance, irritation, jealousy,
delusion which are defilement of the mind that needs treatment in mental
asylum among the minorities in UP and elsewhere among sarvasamaj i.e.,
all societies who are scared by him for the sake of votes for his greed
of power. but we also have a strategy to deal with his rising ambitions.
Since sarvasamaj i.e., all societies belong to the same single race.

IN
THIS WORLD OF GODS AND MEN,TOGETHER WITH MAARAS, BRAHMAS AND THE
COMMUNITY OF RECLUSES AND BRAHMINS I DO NOT SEE ANYONE COULD CONFUSE
VOTERS MIND, OR SPLIT THEIR HEART, OR TAKEN BY THEIR FEET COULD THROW
THEM TO THE OTHER BANK OF THE RIVER.

Willy-nilly, this has made
the Bahujan Samaj Party as the clear winner among the choice before
sarvasamaj i.e., all societies including minority voters here. “Muslims
are conscious of the fact that they hold the second biggest voting
strength, and if they unite with other marginalised sections in Uttar
Pradesh, such as SCs/STs and backwards, poor brahmins, baniyas,
ksatiyas, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists they will be
able to constitute no less than 44 percent of total votes and crossing
more than 70 seats out of 80 in UP.” Hence, the BSP which is the only
hope and alternative as the preferred option.

By birth one does
not become an outcaste, untouchable, unseeable, or a brahmin. By actions
one becomes an outcaste untouchable, unseeable, and a brahmin”.

When
this was said, the brahmin Aggikabhàradvàja said thus to the Blessed
One: Good Awakened One with Awareness, now I know, to me it seems that
something  overturned is re-installed, something covered is made
manifest. It seems as though the path was shown to one who had lost his
way. It seemsas though an oil lamp was lighted for the darkness, so that
those who have eyes could see forms. In various ways good Awakened One
with Awareness has explained the Teaching. Now I take refuge in good
Awakened One with Awareness, the Teaching and the Community of the noble
and wise. May good Awakened One with Awareness think of me as one who
has taken
refuge from today until life lasts”.

“Faith, is the
foremost wealth to man, the Teaching well practiced brings pleasantness.
Of tastes truth is the foremost The livelihood of
one living wisely is said to be the foremost. “

With
faith, the flood is crossed, with diligence the ocean, With effort
unpleasantness gets exhausted, and with wisdom purity comes
about”
Placing
faith in the perfect state and the Teaching to attain extinction, Those
that listen to it diligently and discriminateingly
gain wisdom.

Those
suitably yoked with aroused effort experience the Teaching. Through
truthfulness Ms MAYAWATIJI became famous and by giving VOTERS are bound.

To
a householder with faith, if there be truthfulness, training, Right
view and generosity, he or she would not grieve afterwards.

Now
come on, question other recluses and brahmins, to know, Whether there is
much truthfulness, training, generosity and forbearance evident here.

What is there to question now, from recluses and brahmins. Today I know what is essential for the next government.

It is for our good that the Awakened One came to this world, Now we know that, VOTE given to whom is of much fruit.

When walking, standing, sitting or even lying, it is bending and stretching, These are the movements of the body.

Bones
and veins bound together are covered up with flesh and skin, The body
is covered up with the skin, and the true state is not seen.

The inside is full, the stomach is full with the liver and sexual organs, So also with the heart, lungs, kidneys and the spleen.

It is also full of snot, saliva, sweat and oil of the body, With blood, oil of the joints, bile and the hardened oil.

Then from the nine external doors secrete filth all the time. Through the eyes and ears there are secretions.

There
is snot coming from the nose and through the mouth vomit, So also bile
or phlegm is vomited, from all over the body sweat trickles.

His perforated scull is filled with marrow, The fool deluded thinks it is something agreeable.

When
he lies on his back dead, bloated and turned blue, And thrown into the
charnel ground, he is not owned by his relatives.
It is eaten
by dogs, jackals, wolves and worms, Crows and hawks too eat it, and whatever other creatures there be.

The
bhikkhu hearing the words of the Awakened One, becomes wise, Looks at
the body as it really is, and learns it thoroughly.
As I am
now, this body also was: as this body is, so I will be, Thus he dispels interest for the body internally and externally.

The bhikkhu dispelling interest and greed for the body becomes wise. Realises deathless appeasement and experiences extinction.

This two footed thing is filth giving out a bad smell. It is full of various kinds of filth and strews them here and there.

With such a body, if one thinks conceitedly, Or if he talks low of others, -what is it other than lacking in wisdom.

Then Why this “jadhiveri Kolaveri Kolaveri Kolaveri Da?”

Billboards and Booze – Celebrating Indian democracy: Sajan Venniyoor




April 12, 2014



Guest Post by SAJAN VENNIYOOR



What is the purpose of a political ad?



The page-killer print ad, the giant
hoarding, the radio jingle and the TV spot do not serve to inform or
educate the public, but only to impress them. These are peacock tails,
gambling on the handicap principle
that reliable signals must be costly to the signaler, and cannot be
afforded by those with less worth. They are public displays of political
virility, the media equivalent of a baboon’s red butt which signals the
animal’s potency not just to the female but to the entire tribe.



BABOON

Appealing to a target audience



Last month, DNA newspaper reported that
the Congress is ‘buying endless radio air time in Mumbai promoting the
Rajiv Awaas Yojana, the UPA’s flagship housing scheme.’



“I was told by a frustrated journalist friend,” says the correspondent,
“that this was a classic example of ignorant, senseless media planners
and buyers in the industry. The Rajiv Awaas Yojana, she told me, was not
even applicable in Mumbai.” Obviously, this rookie journo, like the EC,
doesn’t get the point. These ads are not meant for the beneficiaries,
any more than full page MNREGA ads in the Times of India, Delhi edition,
were meant to be read by unemployed, landless peasants.



The information content in most political ads can be written on the margins of a bus ticket, with enough room left over for the Hanuman Chalisa.
For his 1952 presidential campaign, Adlai Stevenson had bought
half-hour commercials on TV, but the pundits of Madison Avenue were
already beginning to package candidates like Fruit Loops. (Stevenson
actually did say, “The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high
office like breakfast cereal is the ultimate indignity to the
democratic process.”)



Political ads don’t appeal to the human intellect. They play on our hopes and fears, and seldom rise above the level of dim-witted symbolism that supposedly cost Rajiv Gandhi the 1989 elections, or the Rs. 700 crore India Shining
campaign dreamt up by the whiz kids of Grey Worldwide in cahoots with
NDA’s finance minister Jaswant Singh, that doomed the BJP in 2004.



“‘India Shining’ is all about pride,”
said Pratap Suthan, who coined the memorable slogan. “It gives us
brown-skinned Indians a huge sense of achievement,” he said, shortly
before being struck by an iceberg and sinking without a trace.



Kabab and sharab



Channeling campaign funds through
political ads on radio and TV, rather than directly to voters in cash
and kind, is little more than a switch from illegal corruption to legal
corruption.



The media’s laid backness about political
advertisements, its own bread and butter, is in stark contrast to its
moral indignation about liquor distribution to the poor. Come the
elections, the media erupts in a rash of reports on the ‘illicit flow of
liquor and money’ in ‘Expenditure Sensitive Pockets” (read: slums)
where, one is led to believe, no illicit liquor flows otherwise. Daily
sales and stock positions of over 10,000 liquor shops are being closely
monitored in Goa, the press informs us with grim satisfaction. (10,000 liquor shops in a state the size of a pool table? Holy cow).



There were three consecutive dry days
during poll week in Delhi this month and it’s not surprising that
enterprising bootleggers stocked up in anticipation of demand. Still,
the headlines scream,
“25000 litres of illicit liquor seized in Delhi ahead of Lok Sabha
polls”, helpfully illustrated with pictures of Grand Marnier, Kahlua and
Cointreau bottles implying that Delhi voters, while susceptible of
inducement, are men of refinement and excellent taste.



booze“Un plus bouteille de Chartreuse, camarade, s’il vous plaît”



This Brahminical abhorrence of free
alcohol should be contrasted with the intellectual pleasure derived from
contemplating 80 foot hoardings of Dr. J Jayalalithaaa or watching the Modi Rap
on TV. Ranging from dire predictions that “democracy will vanish if
bribing voters becomes standard practice” (Prabhu Chawla) to incoherent
noises indicative of disapproval (Arnab Goswami), the thought of voters
being bribed with alcohol and cash gets the knickers of news anchors and
op-ed writers in a twist.



Perhaps it wouldn’t be so bad if poor voters were given the Collected Works of Vivekananda or bottles of gangajal.



Just days before the Lok Sabha elections
kicked off, I read with dismay in the newspapers that quantities of IMFL
were seized in excise raids across the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
“Police strongly believes that such large numbers of liquor bottles were
kept for using the same before and during elections by political
parties,” said one news report. Though “no link with any political party
has been found yet”, such large quantities of liquor, opined Andaman Sheekha darkly, raises many questions.



Having spent a few blissful years in Port
Blair, I have fond memories my friendly neighbourhood bootlegger. 
Karupiah, as I’ll call him, had a modest but steady business, and he
prudently stocked a crate or two of IMFL in anticipation of dry days,
like polling dates.



On any given day, raids across the Andaman & Nicobar Islands would produce illicit IMFL bottles by the score.



On any given day, especially a dry day,
raids across India would produce illicit liquor bottles by the
thousands. Yet the media, the Election Commission, the excise department
and various other uniformed organs of the state prefer to ignore this
minor fact of life in the moral panic that sets in shortly before
elections.



The media is obsessed with liquor
bottles. They have a particular loathing of the half and quarter bottle,
as popularized by Keshto Mukherjee in 1970s movies, symbolic of the
sottish habits of the underclass. In aspirational India, many
respondents cheerfully admit they’d sell their votes for cash, mobile
phones and TV sets, but cheap liquor seldom figures on their wish-list.
Yet, of all the gifts – sarees, cricket sets, mobile phones,
mixer-grinders, TV sets and laptops, to name but a few – by which the
upstanding Indian citizen is induced to part with his vote, the one
that’s guaranteed to send a frisson of horror riding up the spines of TV anchors is alcohol.



The Representation of People Act 1951 is,
of course, pretty anal about the “receipt of, or agreement to receive,
any gratification, whether as a motive or a reward” by voters. Nishkama karma is
the watchword. Former Chief Election Commissioner Dr. SY Quraishi is
particularly scathing about feasts thrown by rich candidates for their
poor constituents, especially the lavish helpings of “biryanis, kababs and sharaabthat mark pre-poll festivities.



The notion that a tot of IMFL or an extra helping of galouti kabab
might unduly influence voters comes naturally to the former CEC (though
the suggestion that an endless stream of government propaganda
masquerading as ‘awareness programmes’ might also unduly influence the
voter would be pooh-poohed by the former Director General of
Doordarshan, Dr. SY Quraishi).



The Advertising Code of the Cable TV
Networks (Regulations) Act is pretty clear that “no advertisement shall
be permitted, the objects whereof, are wholly or mainly of a religious
or political nature; advertisements must not be directed towards any
religious or political end”. This code also applies to radio, but you
wouldn’t think so if you were to switch on a TV set or radio these days,
where there’s probably more political ads than programming.



When TV channels, outraged at seeing cash
and alcohol flow into the grubby hands of voters instead of their own,
petitioned the Andhra High Court to strike down the ban on political
ads, the government argued that the “prohibition on ads of political
nature on cable networks is to prevent well-funded and resourceful
individuals or organisations from using money power and the power of TV
advertising to distort the balance of political debate and the electoral
process”.



Nevertheless, the Andhra HC lifted the
ban in 2004, saying that the law against political ads on TV was
“violative of the right to freedom of trade and business”.  Spending
crores of rupees on political ads and infantile jingles is evidently
more virtuous than giving away saris to poor women, especially if you
own a TV channel.



The Advertising Code for broadcasters
still prohibits political ads, but, with the blessings of the Supreme
Court and the Election Commission, TV channels earn millions from
election campaign ads. Estimates put the total advertisement and
publicity budget across political parties at Rs. 4,000-5,000 crore.



(Having won the right to carry political
ads, TV channels are now engaged in a bitter fight to stop the regulator
from enforcing a 12 minute cap on TV ads. As Amarchand & Mangaldas –
the law firm of choice for many media companies – admits, TV networks
have “reluctantly agreed […] to confine advertising to less than 30
minutes”, which confirms what we have always suspected, that
advertisements routinely exceed programming on many TV channels).



Giving back to the giver



The concept of the media as an impartial
and virtuous intermediary between political parties and the voter is of
fairly recent vintage. The need for a righteous intermediary to
intercede with janata janardhan is, as far as I can tell, a Brahminical construct. “In the mythic introduction to the ancestral offerings, Apastamba says: tatra pitaro devata brahmanas tv ahavaniyarthe (In this (ritual) the Pitrs are the divinity, but the Brahmins stand in for the offertorial fire).”



And not just any old Brahmins, but ones in good standing in society, with high TRPs.



Also, if you please, navavaran bhojayed ayujah (feed an uneven number of Brahmins – but at least nine) srothriyan vagrupavayahsilasampannan (or as many as you can afford) which, as we know, is the fundamental principle behind media planning and buying.



Elections in India are no longer the
riotous celebration of democracy they once were. They have become
sterile, bureaucratic exercises run by media planners – and the Vogons
of Nirvachan Bhavan – who have taken all the joy out of street-level
campaigning. It is not surprising that the party best known for taking
the battle to the streets – a few slaps notwithstanding – is the Aam
Admi Party, which is also the only one that says government should pay
for equal advertising for all political parties. According to the AAP
manifesto, “Political parties [are] to be provided equitable access to
information and media space. Distortions of the media such as paid news,
unlimited media advertisement and misuse of public money for
advertising the ruling party to be regulated.”



This is not entirely an original idea.
The equitable sharing of airtime on TV and other electronic media during
elections is already in the Representation of the People Act (Section
39A). The possibility that rich parties and candidates could,
inequitably, buy loads of air-time on radio & TV is not recognized
either by the Representation of the People Act or the Cable TV Networks
Act.



Invested as they are in media ad campaigns,
the Election Commission fails to understand the meaning of gift-giving.
Like the Canadian government that banned potlatches, the EC condemns
the ancient tradition of the gift-giving feast as ‘bribery’, and
considers it unproductive, illegal and contrary to civilized values.



By the way, the Kwakwaka’wakw responded creatively to the anti-potlatch law passed by the Canadian government:



Sometimes, they held potlatches around Christmas time,
arguing that they were following the Christian tradition of distributing
presents. At other times they gave away sacks of flour and sugar as
well as boxes of pilot biscuits, arguing that they were giving their
hungry relatives food. Photographs of such potlatches show stacks of
these commodities, piled high in a manner reminiscent of Hudson’s Bay
blankets. A container holding a commercially-produced foodstuff,
although ostensibly a source of nutrition for hungry relatives, was now
an ingenious indicator of resistance.

Sensible Objects. Colonialism, Museums and Material Culture’, Elizabeth Edwards et al.



Ceremonial gift-giving has never been
about bribery; it’s about demonstrating wealth and prominence,
presumably useful qualities in a leader.



The unstated advantage of channeling corporate campaign funds into political ads, instead of kababs and sharaab,
is that the money eventually comes back to the giver. Between them, the
Ambani brothers own substantial chunks of Indian media, with Mukesh
Ambani controlling some 30 TV channels,
including English and regional language news channels, while Anil
Ambani owns internet and mobile portals as well as India’s largest
private FM radio network. In a laudable display of value chain
management, a goodly portion of campaign expenditure flows back into the
Ambani coffers through political ads placed on their media outlets,



The mainstream media is understandably coy about discussing this conflict of interest.



Meanwhile, Jaswant Singh of India Shining
fame, for whom India didn’t shine a whole lot since 2004, fortunately
didn’t lose touch with his inner thakur. By the next elections –
presumably having no access to government funds for expensively banal
ad campaigns – Singh took the direct marketing route and distributed cash to voters
during election meetings in Barmer. “It is my duty to help the poor,”
he mumbled unintelligibly. “If Congress thinks helping poor is a crime, I
cannot help it; I’ll continue to help poor people.”



It’s an old Rajputana tradition.


NEW
DELHI: On a day Narendra Modi vowed to cleanse the political system and
Parliament of criminal elements if voted to power, an NGO has found
that BJP has more candidates with criminal and “serious” criminal cases
than Congress in the six phases of Lok Sabha elections. 



As
many as 36 (13 per cent) out of 287 candidates fielded by Congress, 48
(17 per cent) out of 279 candidates from BJP, 29 (10 per cent) out of
291 fielded by AAP



The
consolidated data, released today, is based on the analysis of
affidavits of 5,380 candidates in the first six phases of the ongoing
Lok Sabha polls. Polling for the sixth phase, covering 117
constituencies across the country, is scheduled to be held on Thursday.

[bodhisatva_group] Sri lankan newspaper Educate about Dr. Ambedkar

[Buddhist Spectrum] 01.05.2014

The mind is supreme
Lalitha K Witanachchi
The Buddha gave his Third Discourse to a set of ascetics who were fire worshippers. They tended the fire by keeping it burning.
The Buddha spoke of the Fires Inside. Even today there are those who tend these fires of which the Buddha spoke.z_p15-The-mind-is.jpg
Let us for a moment examine them, and try to see where they exist.
The mind is the most important aspect of our lives. We have a body and a
mind, but we are more particular about the former.
We take great care of our body. We nurture it from infancy, we take
proper nourishment, we take exercise to keep it trim, and we take
medicine when we are ill. This is as it should be for a healthy body is
important.
But hidden within this outer frame of our body is our mind which we
do not seem to look after and tend as much as we tend our body.
The mind from whence emanate all our thoughts, ideas and beliefs,
often determine the state of our body. Within the mind are likes and
dislikes, loves and hates. It is this mind with its fires within that
often determines our thinking, rules our outlook on life and directs our
motives and aspirations.
Yet our search to satisfy our aspirations and ambitions, may often make us restless, disappointed and dissatisfied.
The Buddha realised that the root cause of our suffering were due to
three factors greed, hatred and ignorance Lobha, Dwesha and Moha. The
fundamental cause was ignorance Avidya, which means “not seeing”. It is a
force that opposes the discovery of the truth.
The Buddha has asked us to be mindful at every stage and detect any
signs of deterioration of the mind. We must repair the mind and rid it
of defilements. For sooner or later these inner fires that the Buddha
warned us against, may get out of control and consume us.
Negative emotions like worry, fear, jealousy, excessive desire or craving, lust, ambition and pride can defile the mind.
We begin to think only of ourselves – and centre our mind around “Me” and say “This is mine”.
Our petty, personal, little self, becomes all important to us. We
manipulate situations to suit ourselves. We build barriers around the
“Me and mine” concept, making us selfish, and conceited as a result.
Similarly others build barriers around themselves. Your neighbour
builds a fence around his property. Your family becomes exclusive, not
wanting to share what they have with their friends or their relations,
and on a larger scale nations tighten the barriers between them, with
sanctions. They view each other with suspicion and arm themselves.
We feed these inner fires by wanting more and more. Then fear arises.
Will thieves steal my jewels at night? We spend sleepless nights in
this mental state.
Mingled with fear is jealousy. Will my neighbour’s son do better than
my own? We make wrong judgements. We make stereotypes of people,
believing that such and such group of people are miserly, another group
is avaricious and so on. All these unwholesome thoughts arise in the
mind.
They are defilements that make us restless and dissatisfied with our lot.
We must get rid of these defilements if we are to have peace of mind.
They are defilements that make us restless and dissatisfied with out
lot. We must get rid of these defilements if we are to have peace of
mind.
The mind if uncontrolled, can go to extremes of acute depression or
exuberant elation. Both conditions fail to five us peace. The mind must
be kept on an even keel, be well balanced – neither too low in the
depths of despair nor at the extreme of euphoria.
The balance is maintained when one realises that no condition is
permanent. There is constant change. For a balanced state with peace of
mind we must apply the balm of insight. The path we must tread is the
Middle Way that the Buddha expounded.
One reason for a person not to have a balanced mind is the feeling of
insecurity. This causes great anguish and fear. But Buddhism offers a
way out of such an insecure position. It is the Noble Eightfold Path.
The first step in this path is Right Understanding. We must try to
see things as they really are, not as we want see them, and wish that
they were. We must not deceive ourselves therefore with our prejudices.
It is essential for us to get know our own emotions – as they really are. We then begin to understand this concept of “I AM.”
We will then understand that the roots of our unhappiness are greed,
hatred and ignorance which hinder us seeing our true selves.
Take greed first of all. We want so much of this and that, and what
others have – material things, money and power. The list is endless. And
so we spoil our personal relationships with others.
Our mind harbours evil thoughts. Hatred defiles the mind – murderous
thoughts, sadistic thoughts, disloyalty, indignation – all these are
defilements. With self examination we shall be able to recognise the
imposters that occupy the crevices of our minds.
The realisation that these imposters are there within, is in itself a step forward in the right direction.
As we progress in this process of self examination or insight
meditation, we should so discipline our perceptions what we realise
there is No Self so that is permanent. Our consciousness is but a series
of awareness, going back to a past that really has no limits. We are
but individuals seeking a way out of the torments of this world.
The beacons that light this dark path are our refuge in the Buddha,
the Enlightened One, His teaching the Dhamma, and his followers the
Sangha who can direct us.
Then we must take the step Right Effort. We need energy.
Then comes Right Mindfulness being cognizant of what one is about,
all the time, so that self-deception vanishes – and we gradually
discover the subterfuge of the ego.
We then carry this practice of mental concentration further to Samadhi – Intensifying our concentration to one-pointedness.
Then when we investigate and study the Buddha Dhamma we gain the last of the five factors which is Wisdom or Panna.
Once we have emerged from the darkness of ignorance we will have
fewer attachments. The feeling of ease will increase. We shall realise
that we are truly liberated.
The path to liberation is not easy. It is beset with many traps and
snares. But there is a beacon to light the way. It is the word of the
Buddha.


Ambedkar and Buddhism
Bhadant Shivani Bodhananda Thera
Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, was the
Architect of the Indian Constitution. Born on April 14, 1891, in Mhow,
Madhya Pradesh, Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was the fourteenth child of his
parents, Bhimabai Sakpal and Ramji.
“Sakpal” was the surname of Bhimrao and “Ambavade” was the name of his native village.
z_p15-Ambedkar-and-Buddhism.jpgTo
avoid the socio-economic discrimination and the ill-treatment of the
higher classes of the society, Bhimrao changed his surname from “Sakpal”
to “Ambedkar” by the help of a Brahmin teacher, who had great faith in
him. Since then, Bhimrao and his family used the title, Ambavedkar.
He was a well-known politician and an eminent jurist. Ambedkar’s
efforts to eradicate the social evils likeuntouchablity and caste
restrictions were remarkable. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar a great scholar, Lawyer
and freedom fighter along with hundreds of thousands of Mahar’s an
untouchable caste, converted to Buddhism and changed the face of
Buddhism in India. Dr. Ambedkar’s conversion was a symbolic protest to
the oppressions of caste inequality.
Bhimrao Ambedkar experienced caste discrimination right from the
childhood. After his retirement from the Indian Army, Bhimrao’s father
settled in Satara Maharashtra. Bhimrao was enrolled in the local school.
Here, he had to sit on the floor in one corner in the classroom and the
teachers would not touch his notebooks. In spite of these hardships,
Bhimrao continued his studies and passed his Matriculation examination
from Bombay Universitywith flying colours in 1908. Bhim Rao Ambedkar
joined the Elphinstone College for further education. In 1912, he
graduated in Political Science and Economics from Bombay University and
got a job in Baroda. In 1913, BhimraoAmbedkar lost his father. In the
same year Maharaja of Baroda awarded scholarship to Bhim Rao Ambedkar
and sent him to America for further studies. Bhimrao reached New York in
July 1913. He immersed himself in the studies and attained a degree in
Master of Arts and a Doctorate in Philosophy from Columbia University in
1916 for his thesis “National Dividend for India: A Historical and
Analytical Study.” From America, Dr.Ambedkar proceeded to London to
study economics and political science. The Maharaja also convened many
meetings and conferences of the “untouchables” which Bhimrao addressed.
In September 1920, after accumulating sufficient funds, Ambedkar went
back to London to complete his studies. He became a barrister and got a
Doctorate in science.
In 1947, when India became Independent, the first Prime Minister Pt.
Jawaharlal Nehru, invited Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar, who had been elected as a
Member of the Constituent Assembly from Bengal, to join his Cabinet as a
Law Minister. The Constituent Assembly entrusted the job of drafting
the Constitution to a committee and Dr. Ambedkar was elected as Chairman
of this Drafting Committee. In February 1948, Dr. Ambedkarpresented the
Draft Constitution before the people of India; it was adopted on
November 26, 1949. In 1950,Ambedkar traveled to Sri Lanka to attend a
convention of Buddhist scholars and monks. After his return he decided
to write a book on Buddhism and soon, converted himself to Buddhism.
Ambedkar founded theBharatiya Bauddha Mahasabha In 1955. His book “The
Buddha and His Dhamma” was published posthumously.
On May 24, 1956, on the occasion of Buddha Jayanti, he declared in
Bombay, that he would adopt Buddhism. On 0ctober 14, 1956 at Nagpur
Maharashtra.he embraced Buddhism along with many of his followers. On
October 14, 1956Ambedkar organized a public ceremony to convert around
five lakh of his supporters into Buddhism. In his speech on the Eve of
the great conversion at Nagpur maharshtra Dr. Ambedkar said that
Buddhism can serve not only this country, India, but the whole World at
this juncture in the world affairs; Buddhism is indispensable for world
peace you must pledge today that you, the followers of Buddha, will not
only work to liberate yourself, but will try to elevate your country and
the world in general.
Ambedkar traveled to Kathmandu to attend the Fourth World Buddhist
Conference. He completed his final manuscript, “The Buddha or Karl Marx”
on December 2, 1956. Dr. Ambedkar dedicated himself to the propagation
of the Buddhist faith in India. He wrote a book on Buddhism titled
“Buddha and His Dhamma” explaining its tenets in simple language to the
common man. His another book is “Revolution and Counter Revolution in
India”. He made the provision for the study of Pali in the Indian
Constitution.
Ambedkar’s whole life and mission was a practical contribution to
humanistic Buddhist education inIndia and not just intellectual and
philosophical. Though he was not a Buddhist by birth but by practice and
at heart he was a Buddhist.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is a pure symbol of hard work, dedication,
commitment, love and humanity. He is a father of Indian constitution and
dynamic character of India’s history. Read on to know more about his
life and struggle against social evils.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is the most dynamic character in India’s
struggle for freedom. Struggle of India’s people was not only against
the British rule. At that time the people also needed to be freed from
the rude customs and traditions which led to exploitation. Also they
need to be freed form the customs and traditions which led to the raise
in concepts like untouchability.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar played an important role in the welfare of the
downtrodden in India. He showed them a path which not only led to their
development but also the development of India. Read on to know more
about some facts of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s life.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar studied in the prestigious Columbia University
in New York in 1913. The experience of studying in USA was very amazing
and refreshing for him as he was away from the social discrimination
and hardships resulting due to it. However, He did not get carried away
with all these things. He studied for eighteen hours a day. He completed
his M.A in two years and his main subjects were Economics and
Sociology. The very next year of completion of his M.A, he completed his
PhD thesis too.
After completing his studies he came back to India and got a job in
Baroda Civil Service. Once again he had to face this worst Hindu system
of humiliating untouchables. He decided to give a strong answer to this
treatment given to untouchables.
His weekly publication Mooknayak was one of tools which he used to
struggle against untouchability. He used this tool for criticizing
traditional Hindu political leaders and practices of cast
discrimination. He delivered various speeches to encourage the
untouchables to fight against social discrimination.
He also started taking meetings known as Bahiskrit Hitakarani Sabha
for the encouraging the welfare, education and social development of
lower class. He also undertook massive movements to give rights to
untouchables to share common source of drinking water with others and
enter the temples. Sculptor of Indian constitution
After Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar returned from a Buddhist conference in
Sri Lanka in 1950, he addressed people in Bombay. He appealed all his
people to follow Buddhism to put end to all their sufferings. He also
decided to spend rest of his life in learning more about Buddhism and
encouraging people to follow Buddhism. Therefore on 14th October 1956 he
organised a ceremony at NAGPUR the second capital of maharshtra the
land of naga after it called DIKSHABHOOMI. where lakhs of people came
and accepted Buddhism as their religion along with him.
One of the features of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s multidimensional
character was that he had great love for books. His interest in reading
was so deep that he could concentrate on reading even in crowded or very
noisy places. He could read books even during having a normal
discussion with his friends, family or colleagues. He was successful to
put end to the sufferings of millions. He is a pure example and
inspiration of hard work, dedication, commitment, love and humanity.

Buddhist reflection on death
V F Gunaratna
To the average man death is by no means a pleasant subject or talk
for discussion. It is something dismal and oppressive — a veritable
kill-joy, a fit topic for a funeral house only.z_p15-Buddhist.jpg
The average man immersed as he is in the self, ever seeking after the
pleasurable, ever pursuing that which excites and gratifies the senses,
refuses to pause and ponder seriously that these very objects of
pleasure and gratification will some day reach their end.
If wise counsel does not prevail and urge the unthinking
pleasure-seeking man to consider seriously that death can knock at his
door also, it is only the shock of a bereavement under his own roof, the
sudden and untimely death of a parent, wife or child that will rouse
him up from his delirious round of sense-gratification and rudely awaken
him to the hard facts of life. Then only will his eyes open, then only
will he begin to ask himself why there is such a phenomenon as death.
Why is it inevitable? Why are there these painful partings which rob
life of its joys?
To most of us, at some moment or another, the spectacle of death must
have given rise to the deepest of thoughts and profoundest of
questions. What is life worth, if able bodies that once performed great
deeds now lie flat and cold, senseless and lifeless? What is life worth,
if eyes that once sparkled with joy, eyes that once beamed with love
are now closed forever, bereft of movement, bereft of life? Thoughts
such as these are not to be repressed. It is just these inquiring
thoughts, if wisely pursued, that will ultimately unfold the
potentialities inherent in the human mind to receive the highest truths.
According to the Buddhist way of thinking, death, far from being a
subject to be shunned and avoided, is the key that unlocks the seeming
mystery of life. It is by understanding death that we understand life;
for death is part of the process of life in the larger sense. In another
sense, life and death are two ends of the same process and if you
understand one end of the process, you also understand the other end.
Hence, by understanding the purpose of death we also understand the
purpose of life.
It is the contemplation of death, the intensive thought that it will
some day come upon us, that softens the hardest of hearts, binds one to
another with cords of love and compassion, and destroys the barriers of
caste, creed and race among the peoples of this earth all of whom are
subject to the common destiny of death. Death is a great leveler. Pride
of birth, pride of position, pride of wealth, pride of power must give
way to the all-consuming thought of inevitable death. It is this
leveling aspect of death that made the poet say:
“Scepter and crown

Must tumble down

And in the dust be equal made

With the poor crooked scythe and spade.”
It is the contemplation of death that helps to destroy the
infatuation of sense-pleasure. It is the contemplation of death that
destroys vanity. It is the contemplation of death that gives balance and
a healthy sense of proportion to our highly over-wrought minds with
their misguided sense of values. It is the contemplation of death that
gives strength and steadiness and direction to the erratic human mind,
now wandering in one direction, now in another, without an aim, without a
purpose. It is not for nothing that the Buddha has, in the very highest
terms, commended to his disciples the practice of mindfulness regarding
death. This is known as “marananussati bhavana.” One who wants to
practice it must at stated times, and also every now and then, revert to
the thought maranam bhavissati — “death will take place.”
This contemplation of death is one of the classical
meditation-subjects treated in the Visuddhi Magga which states that in
order to obtain the fullest results, one should practice this meditation
in the correct way, that is, with mindfulness (sati), with a sense of
urgency (samvega) and with understanding (ñana). For example, suppose a
young disciple fails to realize keenly that death can come upon him at
any moment, and regards it as something that will occur in old age in
the distant future; his contemplation of death will be lacking strength
and clarity, so much so that it will run on lines which are not
conducive to success.
How great and useful is the contemplation of death can be seen from
the following beneficial effects enumerated in the Visuddhi Magga: —
“The disciple who devotes himself to this contemplation of death is
always vigilant, takes no delight in any form of existence, gives up
hankering after life, censures evil doing, is free from craving as
regards the requisites of life, his perception of impermanence becomes
established, he realizes the painful and soulless nature of existence
and at the moment of death he is devoid of fear, and remains mindful and
self-possessed. Finally, if in this present life he fails to attain to
Nibbana, upon the dissolution of the body he is bound for a happy
destiny.”
Thus it will be seen that mindfulness of death not only purifies and
refines the mind but also has the effect of robbing death of its fears
and terrors, and helps one at that solemn moment when he is gasping for
his last breath, to face that situation with fortitude and calm. He is
never unnerved at the thought of death but is always prepared for it. It
is such a man that can truly exclaim, “O death, where is thy sting?Ó

Since yesterday after our appeal to arrest Yoga Trainer & businessman Ram
Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev under SC/ST ( POA) Act1989 and take action against
police & administrative officers for non performing their duties under
SC/ST (POA) Act1989 section 4,
​ ​

We had received lot of responses from across the world. We could have divide
responses in four categories are :

 
1.    Strong
support & solidarity to the appeal !
2.   Ramdev
has already tender his apology so to end up this issue !
3.  
His 
intention
  & CONTEXT was different !
 
We welcome and  are thankful for the support &
solidarity from all of agreed section of the society. We appeal you all to
please take this issue forward for the wider interest of equality based
democratic society committed to the constitution of the country.
 
We just wanted to clarify that we do not have any personal
enmity or intention against Yoga trainer Ram Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev.


We firmly believes that his statement was highly derogatory and abusive towards
Dalits community, Dalit women and against every women of the country as his
statement has shown  attitude of hierarchy, patriarchy and casteist basis
on Brahmanism & feudal ideology.


His statement was not a political or referential statement but “purely
sexist comment against Dalit women” and women in general. He related
his statement with the marriage of Rahul Gandhi to emphasis his context.


It is general attitude and understanding of brahmanical and feudal mindset
people that Dalit women are easy to access without any opposition as they do
not have access in the justice tender system. Dalit women are biggest victim of
such attitude and mindset across the country.
 
It is general trend of KHAP PANCHAYATs particular in
western UP and Harayana to impose small fine and accept apology of the
perpetrator against sexual violence against Dalit women.
 
With all respect we wanted to raise that when brutal incident of
16th Dec2012 happened, the whole country has boiled and blocked the whole Delhi
unitedly demanded to hang perpetrator. When issue of Tarun Tejpal (Tehalaka)
came on light every one has rejected his apology and now he is in jail.


Now four Dalit innocent gang rape victims girls from BHAGANA ( HARIYANA) are on
indefinite protest at Janter Manter, New Delhi for justice from last four days.
People of Delhi, Civil society, so called national movement, human right groups,
social organizations etc are keeping silent and mum. Very few have come forward
with some symbolic and formal support.
 
So far only different Dalit groups are coming in support of
them. even in social site also we could not see any campaign or support from
the civil society on this issue. It is live example of insensitivity and
selective attitude basis of caste of the civil society of the country and in
particular of Delhi which stand mum spectator only.

It is unfortunate that people are ready to compromise with
regret (Not apology) of Yoga trainer ram Kishan yadav alias Ramdev with the
dignity and respect of women and in particular of Dalit women !

We appeal to all please do not be selective and specific basis
on caste and class particular in favor of perpetrator. Please do stand in favor
of victim of the caste !
 
Let Us Allow Law to Work In Favor Of Justice ! We are in opinion
that any lawful action against Yoga trainer Ram Kishan Yadav alias Ramdev will bring
a positive massage to the society.
 
We Demand That :
 
1.   
Immediate  Arrest Yoga Trainer & Businessman Ram Kishan
yadav alias  Ramdev under SC/ST (POA) Act1989 & IPC 509 Or Declare him
Absconder !

2TTake action against police & administrative officers for non
performing their duties under SC/ST (POA) Act1989 section 4 !

3.  
NHRC , NCW and NCSC have to take action !


Warm Regards !


​In Solidarity !​

[indiathinkersnet] Fwd: [The Moderates] Narendra Modi’s passive-aggressive communalism



The issue is too boldly written on the wall.
Modi/BJP/RSS
poses a unique and overwhelming threat to India, its secular-democratic
edifice, and thereby vast sections of its people - the “minorities” in
particular, and also all sorts of dissenters.

This election is going to decide whether he’ll be able to take over the reins. And have a go to reshape India.

Therefore it is so important, a veritable life and death question, to block his menacing onward march to Delhi.

The
rest we can keep debating, and also keep fighting the forces - as best
as we can, we despise, as long as Modi does not come to power.
It
goes without saying, even if we succeed in achieving our limited goal,
the Heaven will not descend on the Earth. In fact, far from that.
But we gain some breathing space and time to fight back.
And, that’s all.

That’s the very essence of the grim predicament we are right at the moment faced with.
There is simply no escape from that.

Sukla

Modi’s
model of development is very much a hindutva model with putting all the
marginalised sections in their place: on the top are Muslims, but
Dalits and women are not far behind. That is why Modi does not talk
about specifics: these will be on full display once the NDA comes to
power. The problem is in the last ten years the Upa govt has been so
callous in so many ways that it has provided the fertile ground for
Modi’s message.

Of course,Modi and the rss are far more aggressive on both crony
capitalism and communalism but the congress party’s deep complicity on
these twin issues cannot be ignored. While focus on Modi’s Gujarat and
the plight of Muslims there is much needed, the massacre of Sikhs in
1984 and the cynical way in which the congress-ncp government in the
last ten years and even before have protected shiv sainiks and the
police involved in 1992/3 riots in Bombay in Maharashtra makes me deeply
suspicious of the defence of congress as a secular party with all its
sins. And so far as crony capitalism is concerned, the bjp/congress are
very much together in its defence. Let us not be blind to these
realities in our hatred for monster Modi. That is the real dilemma In
this election.

[indiathinkersnet] Modi intended to influence voters, says furious Election Commission

http://www.ndtv.com/elections/article/election-2014/modi-intended-to-influence-voters-says-furious-election-commission-516388

AhmedabadA police case has been filed in Gujarat against Narendra Modi, the chief minister, and television channels who covered him as he emerged after voting in Ahmedabad.


“If
someone is threatened with a knife an FIR (First Information Report) is
lodged, all I did was show everyone a lotus,” Mr Modi said this
evening, reacting to the case against him. (

Mr
Modi, after casting his vote this morning, walked out of the Ranip
polling station in Ahmedabad showing his inked finger to the crowd which
had gathered around the polling booth. Later, when he interacted with
the waiting media, he brandished his inked finger along with party’s
lotus symbol. For the entire press interaction, Mr Modi kept on
displaying the party’s symbol. The powerful Election Commission says Mr
Modi, the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, has broken the law by
campaigning in a polling area.  



“I
can say that this time nothing can save the mother-son government…a
strong government will come to power,” Mr Modi said to the crowd at the
polling station, promising the defeat of the incumbent Congress which is
led by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. (
India Votes 2014: Full coverage)


“It
is evident from Modi’s tone and tenor that he made a political speech.
He intended, calculated to influence voting today,” the Election
Commission said.  



The
BJP, however, contends that the speech was not an organised press
conference. “We respect the Election Commission but Mr Modi did not
violate the code of conduct,” said BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi.  



The Crime Branch has been tasked to determine if that is correct.  


Congress
spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed accused Mr Modi of being “a serial
offender.” His party had earlier objected to the release of the BJP
manifesto on April 7, when voting in the nine-phase general election
began. (

89
parliamentary constituencies voted today. Among them was Vadodara, one
of the two constituencies that Mr Modi is running from. The other is
Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, which votes on the final day of the election
on May 12.



Under
Mr Modi, the BJP is expected to get the most parliamentary seats,
though forecasts differ on whether the party will get a majority.


9 mythbusters on 2002 post-Godhra riots











For those who have developed “selective and motivated”
amnesia about the truths of 2002 riots in Gujarat and are suddenly
buying into the myths being perpetrated by Narendra Modi’s PR machinery,
here are a few myth-busters to refresh your memory and perhaps your
conscience

  •  

Myth no 1: Post-Godhra violence was brought under control within 2-3 days by Narendra Modi’s government

Truth: “The violence
in the state, which was initially claimed to have been brought under
control in seventy two hours, persisted in varying degree for over two
months, the toll in death and destruction rising with the passage of
time.”


Source: Final Order of the National human Rights Commission chaired by the very respected Justice JS Verma, available here

Myth no 2: Gujarat Police acted fairly by taking action against rioters from every side

Truth: “We women thought of going to police and telling
the police as in the presence of police, the houses of Muslims
were burnt, but the police told us ‘to go inside, it is doom’s day
for Muslims”

Source: PW219
testimony which was admitted as part of Naroda Patya judgment that led
to conviction of Mayaben Kodnani, Narendra Modi’s cabinet minister who
led murderous mobs during 2002 riots. It is available here.

Myth no 3: No conspiracy by the Gujarat government; post-Godhra violence was a spontaneous reaction

Truth: “A key state
minister is reported to have taken over a police control room in
Ahmedabad on the first day of the carnage, issuing directions not to
rescue Muslims in danger of being killed.”


“Voter lists were also reportedly used to identify and target Muslim community members”

Source: Report of Human Rights Watch, April 2002, Vol. 14, No. 3(C). Available here

Myth no 4: Modi allowed a fair prosecution of those accused
in rioting and hence even his cabinet colleague Mayaben Kodnani was
convicted

Truth: “The modern day ‘Neros’ were looking elsewhere
when Best Bakery and innocent children and helpless women were burning,
and were probably deliberating how the perpetrators of the crime can be
saved or protected.”

“Law and justice become flies in the
hands of these “wanton boys”. When fences start to swallow the crops, no
scope will be left for survival of law and order or truth and justice.
Public order as well as public interest become martyrs and monuments.”


“From the facts stated above, it
appears that accused wants to frustrate the prosecution by unjustified
means and it appears that by one way or the other the Addl. Sessions
Judge as well as the APP (Shri Raghuvir Pandya, the public prosecutor in
this case at the time was a member of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP) and contested elections from Ward 20, Vadodara in the 1996
Corporation Elections on a BJP ticket!)  have not taken any interest in
discharge of their duties.”


Source: Supreme Court
in Zahira Habibulla H Sheikh And Anr vs State Of Gujarat And Ors on 12
April, 2004 CASE NO.: Appeal (crl.) 446-449 of 2004. Available here

Myth no 5: Narendra Modi never justified post-Godhra killings

Truth: “Responding to
queries regarding various statements attributed to him by the media, Mr
Modi denied citing Newton’s law. Nor had he spoken of “action-reaction”;
he had wanted neither the action (at Godhra) nor the subsequent
reaction. When we cited footage in Zee to the contrary (Annexure 4A),
there was no reaction from Mr Modi”


Source: Editors Guild Fact Finding Mission Report dated 2002. Available here

Myth no 6: Narendra Modi speaks only about development in his
speeches. Even after 2002 riots, his speeches were never laced with
communal poison

Truth: Narendra Modi’s reported speech: “For several
months, the opposition has been after me to resign. When I did, they did
not know what to do and started running to Delhi to seek Madam’s help.
They realised that James Michael Lyngdoh, the Election Commissioner of
India, is their only saviour.Some journalists asked me recently, ‘’Has
James Michael Lyngdoh come from Italy?'’ I said I don’t have his janam
patri, I will have to ask Rajiv Gandhi. Then the journalists said, ‘’Do
they meet in church?'’. I replied, ‘’Maybe they do.'’ James Michael
Lyngdoh came and visited Ahmedabad and Vadodara. And then he used asabhya basha (indecent
language) with the officials. Gujaratis can never use such language
because our rich cultural heritage does not permit it. Then he gave a
fatwa ordering that the elections can’t be held. I want to ask him: he
has come to this conclusion after meeting only members of the minority
community. Are only minority community members citizens of India? Are
majority community members not citizens of this country? Is the
constitutional body meant only for the minority community? Did he ever
bother to meet the relatives of those killed in the Godhra carnage? Why
didn’t he meet them? Why didn’t he ask them whether the situation was
conducive for polls? Why? James Michael Lyngdoh ( says it slowly with
emphasis on Michael), the people of Gujarat are posing a question to
you.”

Source: Reported speech of Narendra Modi, September 30, 2002. Available here

Myth no 7: Narendra Modi never applied for a US Visa (when it came to light that he was denied one)

Truth: “The Chief Minister of Gujarat state, Mr.
Narendra Modi, applied for a diplomatic visa to visit the United States.
On March 18, 2005, the United States Department of State denied Mr.
Modi this visa under section 214 (b) of the Immigration and Nationality
Act because he was not coming for a purpose that qualified for a
diplomatic visa. Modi’s existing
tourist/business visa was also revoked under section 212 (a) (2) (g) of
the Immigration and Nationality Act. Section 212 (a) (2) (g) makes any
foreign government official who “was responsible for or directly carried
out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom”
ineligible for a visa to the United States. 
The
Ministry of External Affairs requested that the Department of State
review the decision to revoke his tourist/business visa. Upon review,
the State Department re-affirmed the original decision.” 
This
decision applies to Narendra Modi only. It is based on the fact that,
as head of the State government in Gujarat between February 2002 and May
2002, he was responsible for the performance of state institutions at
that time. The State Department’s detailed views on this matter are
included in its annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices and the
International Religious Freedom Report. Both reports document the
violence in Gujarat from February 2002 to May 2002 and cite the Indian
National Human Rights Commission report, which states there was “a
comprehensive failure on the part of the state government to control the
persistent violation of rights of life, liberty, equality, and dignity
of the people of the state.”


Source: Statement by David C. Mulford, US Ambassador to India, March 21, 2005. Available here

Myth no 8: Vajpayee never asked Modi to observe “Rajdharma”, did not rap him for 2002 riots

Truth: “In comments which appeared to back criticism
of the state authorities, Mr Vajpayee said he would speak to political
leaders about allegations that they had failed to do their job.
“Government officials, political leaders, need to respond to the task.
The constitution guarantees equal rights for all,” he said.The state
government is controlled by the BJP, and the Chief Minister, Narendra
Modi, has come in for particular attack over the way the authorities
reacted to the violence. At the Shah
Alam camp in Gujarat’s commercial capital, Ahmedabad, Mr Vajpayee said
that the Godhra attack was “condemnable” but what followed was
“madness”. “The answer to madness is not madness,” he said in an
emotional speech.”The duty of our government is to protect the property,
life and honour of everybody… there is no scope for discrimination,”
he said in an apparent reference to allegations that local officials had
turned a blind eye to the killings.”


Source: Vajpayee says riots “shameful” – BBC News report April 4th 2002. Available here

Myth no 9: It’s not sheer opportunism that well-known Modi-baiters like Smriti Irani, have today become his cheerleaders

Truth: “Smriti
Irani who unsuccessfully contested from Delhi’s Muslim-dominated
Chandni Chowk constituency in the April-May parliamentary elections,
blamed Modi for BJP’s recent electoral reverses. “Whenever people
mention Gujarat they only talk about the riots and try to corner the
Gujaratis on the issue. So, in order to maintain the respect that I have
for Atalji and the BJP, I won’t hesitate to take this step( of going on
a fast to seek Modi’s removal) ,” she said.”


Source: Times of India report dated December 12, 2004. Available here

These myth-busters took me just one hour to compile. So it’s quite
surprising that none of the stalwarts who interviewed Modi, (some of
whom saw the events of 2002 unfold in front of their very own eyes),
never counter-questioned him further and exposed the glaring gaps in his
“rebuffed” narrative. Much like Smriti Irani, I guess, each night they
must be saying to themselves “Hey Ram”….

Modi’s Public Demonstration of His Contempt for Indian Laws


[The notice issued by the Election Commission to the government of Gujarat is attached herewith.

The first two paragraphs:
“The Commission has seen the video recording of the address by Sh. Narendra


Modi at a meeting in Ahmedabad after he cast his vote today (30.04.14) in the morning.
From the substance, tone and tenor of the address made by Sh. Modi and the statements


made by him and the manner in which the symbol o’Lotus,, of the BJp was being
displayed by him at the said meet, thereby displaying to the public election matter by


means of television in polling areas going to polls today it is evident that the said address
was in the nature of political speech intended and calculated to influence and affect the


result of elections in the constituencies going to polls today, not only in Ahmadabad but
also in all other constituencies in the State of Guj arat andelsewhere in the country.



“2′ The Commission is of the view that by holding that meeting and also by

addressing the same today when the polling is going on in the entire State of Gujarat and
in different parts of the country, Sh. Narendra Modi has violated the provisions of


Sections 126 (1) (a) and 126 (l) (b) of R.P. Act 1951. Therefore, the Commission directs


under Article 324 of the Constitution and all other legal provisions enabling it in this
behalf that complaints/ FIR as the case may be, should be filed against Sh. Narendra


Modi and all Others who were involved in the convening and holding of the said meeting,
under the provisions of Sections 126 (l) (a) and 126 (1) (b). Further, if any restrictions


have been imposed by the competent authority in Ahmadabad under Section 144 of
crPC, then complaints/FlR should also be made under Section 1gg of Ipc.”]

Character
of BJP is such that in spite support of Chaiwala to Dharamgurus BJP even in 2009
elections won just 116 seats but lost deposit in 170 seats.


 


In
1962 as JS BJP won just 14 seats but lost deposits in 114 seats.


 


Earlier
in 1962 there were few regional parties like JDU, BSP, TMC, AIDMK etc even then
BJP couldn’t make any progress.


 


I
can’t guarantee less than 150 seats but had INC contested 2014 Elections with

As given in the Annexure – Gujarat was under Three Years of Drought Spell when he
took over in 2001 and since then there were 5 drought years when Food
Production declined. Only years were Very Good assisted by good even monsoon –
2007-08 and 2011-12.


 



Milk
Production Increase by around 56% in 10 years is assisted by say 200% and 60%
increase in Cross Bred Cows and Buffalo
Numbers.


 


1.2
Livestock Population, Gujarat
State. 2003-2007


Crossbred
Female population increased by 78%, Ingenious Cattle Negligible and Buffalo 22%.

stealth cult RSS’s Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi has RSSised the religion
including Yoga for the sake of vote bank politics for their greed for
power. They know that because of the tampered EVMs it is now their term
to rule country. Hence the ayoga chor guru ramdev talked talked about
sexual misconduct attributed outcast untouchable Scheduled Caste
Scheduled Tribe women. It is a non-bailable offense. No sooner this cult
members even think of SC/STs they get enraged with hatred, anger,
intolerance, jealousy,delusion because of their dominating attitude
which is nothing but defilement of the mind that needs treatment in a
mental asylum not in Assemblies or parliament. All the propagating
leaders of this cult be treated for their madness. All efforts are made
to prevent the BSP to acquire the MASTER KEY for Sarvajan Hitaye
Sarvajan Sukhaye i.e., for the welfare, happiness and peace for all
societies. This Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi will reap the fruits of Tampered
EVMs as they will be playing the dangerous game of murdering democracy.


This
most fearful 58″ chested
barbarian “culprit of Godhra” who belong to the stealth cult RSS;s
Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi scare the voters with their intolerance, hatred,
anger, jealousy all defilement of mind which is nothing but a mental
disease and required treatment in mental asylum and not in parliament.
To day many leaders of different parties agree with this for this
country belongs to all as a single race. There is a shadow boxing going
on between this 58″ chested barbarian culprit and the original owners
of the cult. The country is not afraid of this cult.

Only the non
tamper proof EVMs could help them because the Election Commission does
not have members belonging to sarvasamaj as The Election Commission has
failed to
implement the Superior Courts order to replace all the
EVMs. Instead 385 of the 543 Lok Sabha constituencies have been replaced
by VVPT machines.New voter verifiable paper trail (VVPT) machines to
replace the EVMs, following doubts that it could be tampered which means

that ever since the EVMs came into existence free and fair elections
were not taking place and results were to the whims and fancies of the
Election Commission. Voting Machines are “Calculators which can be
manipulated by computer softwares”. New Machines are ordered by EC,
where a paper slip will come out with EVM voting which will be then
deposited in a box. What is the use? Paper Slip will show that voter has
casted vote for “Party A”, but calculator software will add vote to
“Party B”! The Computers are programmable. No use for such fake paper
slips. In Superior Courts it has been demonstrated how these computers
can be manipulated and how it can be pre-programmed to make sure
victoryto one candidate during election. The EVM machines have killed
Democracy and have all the potentials to do so.

Under
such circumstances the following exposure by media will have no
relevance in the forth coming General Elections until the Superior Court
and the upholders of
Democracy including the free and fair media awaken the voters.

A Chip can be inserted that “Party A” should get +1 more vote than “Party B” no matter what may be the actual voting.

These are called “Overwriting Commands”. Computers are computers. They can be programmed and re-programmed.

Ruling
Party and Election Commission of India disregards truth and insisted on
use of EVM machinesin Elections. They are source of discriminative
Caste bias. Ms Mayawati became Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for
the fourth time with her policy of Sarvajan Hithay Sarvajan Sukhay. with
thesupport of sarvasamaj i.e., all societies. But in the last assembly
elections she lost because the CEC ordered for draping all the ELEPHANT
symbols of BSP and statues of SC/ST/OBC icons were also draped. There
is an apprehension that the EVMs were also tampered to defeat her. Where
as many states went for elections after the UP elections. But the CEC
never ordered for draping the symbols of Congress, BJP, SP, AIADMK
etc.,including the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. The statues of upper caste
leaders’ have not been ordered to bedraped. Hon’ble Chief Justice may be
pleased to include all sections of the society to represent in the
Election Commission for level playing ground and till such order
implemented the elections may be postponed.

People
and Other Election Candidates have some Constitutional Rights which are
being violated by use of EVM machines. Open Source Code is not being
made public. People have right under Art 21 to live a life of Dignity.
You cannot live a life of Dignity without free and fair elections.

The

Courts have to be further convinced that they have jurisdiction to pass
orders which are being asked, and it is practicable and desirable to
issue such prohibitory orders. It is DUTY of Court to uphold
Constitution by passing such prohibitory orders. Election Commission is a
Government body and hence if it acts arbitrarily it violates Art.14.

If
Election Commission does not ADMIT that machines are capable of
manipulation, it acts arbitrarily  and its Decision Process is vitiated.
The Decision is Liable to be
struck down on ground that the important components are kept out from
decision making process.

It
is Duty of Court to protect Basic Structure of Constitution. If Fair
Elections are replaced with Manipulatable Elections, the Basic Structure
of Constitution is
DESTROYED. So it is Duty of Court to ban EVM
machines. The Superior Courts of Most democratic countries have already
banned such use.

The Court can strike down such arbitrary policy and decisions of EC.

EC
must first of all ADMIT that EVMs can be manipulated… Only thereafter
it should further satisfy courts about what steps are taken by it to
prevent manipulations.

Apart from Rights of People, there are
Rights of Other Contesting Candidates to be considered. Where will they
appeal for a re-count? How can it be done on same manipulated EVM
machines?

Original method of ballot papervoting and counting in
presence of representatives of Candidates, is still the best method as
recognized by US, UK, Germany etc countries.

Are our Courts powerful enough to take call and ban EVM machines which are already banned in other countries?

We have to see. Laws of other countries not applicable to India.

Our courts and our democracy are passing through a process.

It is hoped supporters succeed in their efforts to liberate country from Manipulative EVM machines.

OPEN SOURCE CODE OF EVM/VVPT MUST BE MADE PUBLIC for LEVEL PLAYING FIELD.

Appearing
for the Centre,  Attorney General GE Vahanvati informed a Bench of
Justices P Sathasivam and Ranjan Gogoi that the process of amendment
was“underway”. In  response to a letter written by EC on March 28, 2013,
the Legislative Department of the Law Ministry had begun the work of
preparing  amendments to the Rules, which would be placed before the Parliament.

The
Bench exclaimed, “We are  happy that it has finally materialised. Now
what remains is when we are  to implement it.” All parties were in
support of introducing the VVPT machines.

Despite all these

IN
THIS WORLD OF GODS AND MEN, TOGETHER WITH MAARAS, BRAHMAS AND THE
COMMUNITY OF RECLUSES AND BRAHMINS I DO NOT SEE ANYONE COULD CONFUSE
VOTERS MIND, OR SPLIT THEIR HEART, OR TAKEN BY THEIR FEET COULD THROW
THEM TO THE OTHER BANK OF THE RIVER.



ON 16-05-2014 THE WORLD WILL SEE THE WAVE OF AWAKEN ONE WITH AWARENESS

BAHUJAN SAMAJ PARTY - A SILENT INTEGRATOR

Bahujan Samaj Party
“APPEAL”
To Vote for
“Sarvajan Hitaye & Sarvajan Sukhaye”
In General Elections -2014
Being Held In the Country
For the 16th Lok Sabha


Kumari Mayawati
National President
Bahujan Samaj Party

people of other neglected classes, rise and become rulers on the
strength of your votes and yourselves achieve your cherished goal
of “Social Transformation and Economic Emancipation”.
National President of BSP movement and Icon of social
 transformation in the country Behen Ms. Mayawati Ji, who has been
consistently advancing the caravan of the epoch-making person,
who gave an epoch-making call of this kind, the architect of the 
Constitution, hart Ratna and most revered Baba Saheb Dr.
Bhimrao Ambedkar, offering glowing tributes to Baba saheb.

Jai Bhim !                                                                           Jai Bharat !!

Bahujan Samaj Party “APPEAL”
To Vote for
“Sarvajan Hitaye & Sarvajan Sukhaye”
In General Elections -2014
Being Held In the Country
For the 16th Lok Sabha


Dear Friends,
             As is now known to everyone, Bahujan
Samaj Party” (BSP) is the only party in our
country which “does not believe merely
promises, allurement or announcement etc.,
but in demonstrating abundant volume of work
in public interest and for public welfare.” In other
words, BSP believes in mantra of “deeds and
not merely words.”Therefore, our party,
unlike other political parties, does not issue any
“Election Manifesto” of its in any election, rather
issues only an “APPEAL” to vote for the BSP
for completing the incomplete work of the
humanistic movement of the great Sants, Gurus
and Mahapurush (great men) born from time
to time in the “Bahujan Samaj” here in our
country, especially Mahatma Jyotiba Phule,
Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj, Shri Narayana
Guru, Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar and
Manyawar Shri Kanshi Ram Ji etc., by following
the paths shown by them so that our party by
showing a good result in elections can occupy
the seat of power and then through the “Master
Key” of political power can make the life of the
poor people from the Sarva Samaj (all sections
of society), as also others unhappy and
oppressed by a castiest  order “just happy,
prosperous and dignifies”, because about the
importance of the “Master Key of political
power” Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Abedkar
used to often say that “political power is that
one Master Key through which all the problems
can be solved, in other words, through this
Master Key all the closed doors to your progress
and prosperity can be opened.”

    By following this very thinking of
Parampujya Bab Saheb Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar,
our party is contesting these general elections
to 16th Lok Sabha on all the seats in most of
the states of the country with full preparation
on its own, in other words, our party has not in
this Lok Sabha elections entered into
any electoral alliance or understanding of
any kind with any party.

    But now the main question that arises
here is why is it necessary for the general public
of the country not to vote for the “Congress”
and the “BJP” and their allies, but to vote only
for the “BSP” and strengthen this party of theirs
all over the country? This main and essential
thing will have to be understood carefully.

    In this regard, it is our conviction that
the BSP is the only political party in the country
the “ideology, principles and policies” besides
“work style” of which are in the greater interest
of and for the full welfare of Sarva Samaj,
in other words, the people of all the religions
and all castes; and, at the same time, it does
well within time  whatever it says in the interest
of and for the welfare of the Sarva Samaj (all
sections of society), whereas other political
parties give a lot of assurances and do very
little work to translate them into realities, in
other words, most of their work is confined to
planning on paper and is seldom seen or is at
the best seen incomplete at the ground level, a
proper benefit of which is not able to reach the
common people in a right manner.

    This is the main reason why as a result
of wrong policies of the government of the
parties having a cattiest mindset no significant
change has come about even now, 66 years
after independence in “social, educational and
economic” condition of the ” Bahujan Samaj”,
which comprises the Scheduled Castes (SCs),
Scheduled Tribes (STs), other backward classes
(OBCs) and the people of different communities
and religions like the Sikhs, Muslims, Christians,
Parsis and Buddhists etc., belonging to the
religious minority society, whose population is
altogether about 85 percent of the country.

    And, I have spoken about wrong policies
of the governments of these opposition parties
here because in our country, in the centre and
most of the states, governments of whichever
parties have been formed till date have been
mostly formed with financial assistance of big
capitalists and super-rich (dhannaseth) , because
of which these parties after coming to power,
frame each and every “economic policy” of their
respective government in accordance with the
interests of those very super-rich, in other words;
they do not frame their economic policies with a
view to removing sufferings and hardships of
the poor and the general public here.

    Thus all these opposition parties,
despite maintaining their separate identities ,
foster and promote only a particular kind of
belief that is bases on “pro-capitalist” and they
have common masters, who are big capitalists
and super-rich persons and industrialist, in
other words, all these opposition parties and
big capitalists  have been always complimenting
each other and they both  take pride in helping
and serving interests of each other, which is not
at all pro-poor and pro-people. Their interest in
removing sorrows and sufferings of the poor
people and the general public is mostly a
“sham and hypocrisy”.

     Not only this, rather because of these
very reasons “prices and unemployment”
skyrocketing and have been continuously
increasing here as a result of which the vast
population of the poor and the middle income
class in the country for the teason of being the
hardest hit are highly unhappy and stressed.
This is the main reason why the economic
condition of the people of the “Bahujan Samaj”
here along with that of particularly the poor
people from the “avarna (Upper/High carte)
Samaj” continues to be very bad even now.

    Keeping all these matters in view, we
then by following the paths shown by Parampujya
Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar had to form
a separate political party of ours by the name
of the “Bahujan Samaj party” (BSP) under the
leadership of “Manyawar Shri Kanshi Ram Ji”
on April 14, 1984, and now this party with
limitless love, sacrifices and cooperation of the
Sarva Samaj has become a prominent and
important party at the “national level”.

    And as it is known to all, the Bhaujan
Samaj Party (BSP) does not at all follow in the
footsteps of the anti-poor and pro-capitalists
parties like the congress and the BJP, and
rather than take money from capitalists and
super-rich like other parties and work at their
bidding, it is running its “humanistic
movement” all over the country by taking
donation and membership subscription from
its cadre, followers and supporters.

    By following the same principle, our
party has also got an auspicious opportunity of
forming its own government several times in
the most populous state of the country, Uttar
Pradesh, and it has been the first and the only
government in the country every policy of which
has been framed by keeping in view the moto
of “Sarvajan Hitaye and sarvajan Sukhaye”
(Progress and Prosperity For All), which clearly
and perfectly reflects “Pro-sarvajan and pro-
Sarva Samaj ideology and policies” of the BSP.

    Not only this, rather this party of ours
by gradually expanding its mass-base in the
entire countrys now ensured victory of many
of its nominees and sent them as MPs to
Parliament and as Legislators in several state
assemblies. besides, government has been
formed under the leadership of our party in Uttar
Pradesh four times, ( first three times in the years
of 1995, 1997, and 2002 for short periods but
in the year of 2007 with an absolute majority
for five years), and , all the four times the
government of our party has in the matter of
ensuring “development and justice” in the state
taken full care of interests and welfare of the
Sarva samaj, but we have also given first
priority to those people of the “Bahujan samaj”,
who under the past governments have been
neglect here on a big scale particularly in the
“social, educational and economic” field.

    And it is by taking serious note of this
that the government of our (BSP) part in Uttar
Pradesh in order to bring about judicious
improvement in “social, educational and
economic” condition of the people of the
Bahujan Samaj constituted for the first time in
the country separate “Welfare Department” for
each of their segments and by selecting
particularly SC/ST majority villages in the state
on a priority basis under the Dr. ambedkar Gram
Vikas Yojana ( Village Development Scheme) has
done the work of covering them with necessary
basic amenities of every kind and other works
of development also in a phased manner and
then with a view to making this scheme still
more beneficial has made available a lot of funds
under this ssheme and changes its name to
“Baba Saheb Dr.Ambedkat Uttar Pradesh Gram
Sabha Samagra Vikas Yojana” for all round
development of gramsabhas.

    Similarly in the name of Manyawar Shri
Kanshi Ram Ji, who advanced the stalled
humanistic self-respect caravan of Baba sahib
Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar by imparting momentum
to it, “Shahari Samagra Vika Yojana” (Urban all
round development scheme) was devised and
through this scheme, cities, towns and villages,
big and small, of Uttar Pradesh were developed
in a phased manner. But momentum could be
imparted to all these works only by keeping in
view limited economic resources of the state, and
had our government got adequate cooperation
from the Central Government for all these welfare
works, still more and speedier benefit could have
been made available to the deprived people.

    Besides by giving priority to particularly
“SC/STs, exploited, other backward classes (OBCs)
and religious minorities” from the Sarva samaj
in Uttar pradesh,”two-room pucca houses”
were given to the poor homeless from among
them and by “allotting vacant government
land” to helpless people for “farming”;
possession has also been ensured to them by
the BSP government, which has directly
benefitted lakhs of poor people in Uttar pradesh.

    For promoting “Education”also, our
BSP government has for the first time in the country
granted “scholarships” to children belonging to
the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and like
them to the poor children of the other backward
classes (OBCs) and of Muslim samaj in particular
from the religious minorities and in accordance
with increase in prices has “doubled” the rates
of the scholarships and also made arrangements
for distributing these to students immediately
after their admission. And  at the same time, to
help qualifying “poor students from these
classes for high ranking jobs”, our government
has also made arrangements for giving them
“free government coaching”.

    Besides, for poor children from the
“Savarna (Upper Caste) Samaj, along with
these classes in Uttar Pradesh, dawn of a new
age in the field of higher and technical education
has been ushered in under which an historic work
has been done for the first time to send such
children to other countries for higher education
at government expenditure to the newly
established world class “Gautam Buddha
University” in newly created Gautam Buddha
Nagar District (Greater Noida near New Delhi).

    At the same time, giving priority to the
development of people of Scheduled
castes and Scheduled Tribes, a provision was
mad for the first time for separate “25 per
cent fund” from the budget of the Uttar
Pradesh government for them. Similarly, for
creating a sense of security among the people
of the “Bahujan samaj” in every district of Uttar
Pradesh, a provision of “reservation” was made
for the first time in the country for making
officers of the “police department” from their
society as Station House Officers (SHO).

    Similarly, full care has been taken of
particularly the people of the “Muslim Society”
the largest segment of the religious minority
society, in Uttar Pradesh in every field. their
educational and economic development and also
full security of their life and property and religion
were ensured. in addition, by including
economically backward people from the Muslim
society in the list of the backward class, our party’s
government for the first time made available
to them “facility of reservation in government
jobs and other fields” in Uttar Pradesh.

    A new initiative in the matter of
 ”reservation” : In the matter of “reservation”
also, we during all our terms in office i Uttar
Pradesh have got cleared the backlog of
“reservation” quota of people of the
Scheduled castes(SCs)/Scheduled Tribes (STs)
and the other backward classes (OBCs) pending
for years in government services and other areas
by conducting a spacial recruitment drive as a
result of which the people of these classes got
“permanent employment on a big scale”
and a new kind of confidence was generated
among the people of these classes.

    Besides, for making available the facility
of “reservation” in the areas like ” hon’ble
Judiciaary, council of ministers, Rajya Sabha,
Legislative Councils and private sectors” etc., in
the country where it is not yet been made
available to the people of the Scheduled castes/
Scheduled Tribes and the other backward
classes by the Central Government, our party’s
struggle with the Central Government is
relentlessly continuing. At the same time,
relentless effort is being made by our party for
securing the benefit of reservation in an
additional way, keeping intact the provision of
reservation as fixed at present, to those people
of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes in the
country who through religious conversion have
become Christians or Muslims, by taking up with
the Central Government their inclusion also into
the list of Scheduled castes/Scheduled Tribes.

    Moreover, the governments of the
Congress Party, BJP and other opposition parties
under a well thought out conspiracy are engaged
in an attempt to gradually finish the facility of
reservation, which the people of the Scheduled
Castes (SCs)/ Scheduled Tribes (STs) and the
other backward classes (OBCs) are getting in
government services in “government
departments” and “institutions” at central and
state levels in the country becausee of tireless
efforts of most revered Bba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao
Ambedkar, by handing these over to the “private
sector” on a big scale, when the facility of
reservation is not yet available to these
classes in jobs at the central and state levels in
the private sector. And in such a situation, a day
will come when the entire constitutional facility
of reservation for these classes will automatically
come to an end. Our party is very “serious and
worried” over this matter and in this regard the
people of these classes all over the country also
need to be very “alert and vigilant”.

    In this context, it is the believe of our party
that this constitutional facility of reservation of
the people of SCs/STs and OBCs can remain
secure and this facility can be secured for them
in the areas where it is not yet available only
when these people form a government of their
own party, BSP, in the country, in the Centre
also along with that in the states and an
“incontrovertible proof” of this is the formation
of our party’s government in Uttar Pradesh as
the BSP’s is the first and the only government
in the country to have ensured “full guarantee”
of keeping intact the existing facility of
reservation even after the handing over of any
“government department” and “institution” in
Uttar Pradesh to the private sector.

    At the same time, our party in the matter
of reservation has for the first time made a
provision that if the works of government
departments are given to any “private
institution” or “individual” on contract, then the
same percentage of reservation would continue
to be given to the people of the SCs, Sts and
the OBCs classes as they have been getting in
government departments.

    At the same time, our party in the  matter
of “reservation” all over the country is a votary
of providing separate reservation to the poor
people from the Savarna (Upper caste)
society on an economic basis, which would
have to be implemented only by the “Central
Government” by amending the Country’s
Constitution. Therefore, several times letters
have been written by the government of our
party to the Government for giving separate
reservation to these classes on an
economic basis, but this suggestion of ours
has not so far been accepted by the Central
Government of any party.

    But in this regard, I wish to assure the
people of the “Savarna Society” that when a
government of our party is formed, then our
party’s government would make a meaningful
attempt to remove their poverty and
unemployment also by certainly making
available the facility of reservation to them
without being asked by them to do so. And even
otherwise it is known to you people about the
work style of our party that our party does what
it says, in other words, there is no difference
between assertions and deeds of our party, this
is known to all by now.

    My party’s government has also been
fully sensitive and serious over “Social
Security”  benefits to the people along with
Constitutional facility of “reservation”. Therefore,
we have increased the amount of old age/farmer
pension from Rs.150 to Rs.300. At the same
time, may party’s government promptly
increased the daily wages of “labourers” from
Rs.58 to Rs. 100 as they are the most poor
and weaker section and mostly come in the
category of “agricultural “labourers” and to whom
no attention had ever been paid earlier  because
of their having been not organized.

    At the same time, our BSP government
in Uttar Pradesh has instead of giving
“unemployment allowance” provided the youths
with an opportunity to live with self-respect and
self-reliance by providing them with
“opportunity of permanent employment”.
In addition to these, my part’s government has
taken full care of interests of the poor and
unemployed people from the Sarva samaj as
also “farmers”, “workers”, “traders” and the
people engaged in other occupations and has
taken many important decisions in their interests.

    Along with these works, our party’s
government in Uttar pradesh has given full
respect and honor to great Sants, Gurus and
Mahapurush ( great men) born from time to
time in the Bahujan Samaj by creating several
“new  districts, universities, hospitals and
museums and many other important
places” were named after them.

    Here, I also wish to say it that the
peole of SCs/STs, backward and other
neglected samaj (classes) have been victims
of excesses and atrocities of various kinds
perpetrated  by the people having a cattiest
mindset since independence till date and they
are “not getting full justice” in time and in a
proper and satisfactory manner. But our party
on coming to power in the Centre would not at
all allow “injustice and exploitation” of any kind
to any class of the society and would do
” Justice to all” and by fully establishing a
“Rule of Law By Law” in the entire country.
like in Uttar Pradesh and would thereby create
an “atmosphere free from injustice, crime,
exploitation and fear”

    At the same time, because of absence of
adequate development and rampant injustice,
exploitation, poverty and wretched condition
across the regions in our country, the people are
adopting the path of “Naxalism”, and Centre
and the state governments have not yet given
proper attention towards them, but our party
immediately on assuming power in the Centre
would make every possible effort to find a “lasting
solution” to all their problems and will also make
fullest effort to bring them into the mainstream
of development process by providing them the
opportunity of “permanent employment”.

    Besides, “terrorism” has grown to be
big challenge before our country over the past
few years, the main reason of which are
weaknesses of the Central Government and also
whichever party is in power also has to some
extent a vested political interest in it. But our
party on coming to power in the Centre would
pay full attention towards this also.

    As far the question of the National
Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme is
concerned, there is a provision of providing
employment for only 100 out of 365 days in a
year under the scheme and that too for only
one unemployed member of a family. But on
coming to power in then Centre, we will run such
a scheme for the poor and needy people living
in rural areas all over the country as would
ensure for them “employment throughout the
year, i.e., all the 365 days of a year” by
restructuring/rationalising various existing
welfare schemes.

    At the same time, it is also no secret to
anyone that during the long rule of over 63 years
of the Congress and the BJP and their supporting
parties, “farm, farming and farmers” have
been neglected in a big way; in other words, in
the process of encouraging big/heavy industries
under the governments of these parties serious
negligence has been shown towards interests
and welfare of “farming sector and farmers”.

    Not only this, rather persisting in this
cattiest and feudal mindset even now, the
Central Government led by the Congress party
announced only a few concessions in the budget
for 2007-08 to benefit a handful of big farmers.
Such announcements are generally made before
elections because of which their real benefit
does accrue to the people.

    At the same time, no concern is shown
for crores of such farmers in the country who are
groaning under loan at exorbitant rates of
interests from money lenders. They constitute
about 46 per cent of total number of farmers and
need government assistance to the maximum so
that they could be prevented from committing
suicides. But the Central and the state
governments have done nothing to improve the
wretched lots of crores of families and farmers.

    Another bitter truth in this process is that
the land of the poor and helpless people have
been acquired for setting up big/heavy
industries, but they have not been given jobs
of even the lowest order in those industries
because of which the life of the people of the
“Adivasi (Scheduled Tribe) Samaj” in
particular has become still more difficult. During
the rule of the Congress and the BJP, this is the
height of exploitation, but our party wants to
make “farming a dignified occupation”.

    Not only that, our path wants to see
the life of farmers as happy and prosperous.
Our BSP government in its very first year had
began work on an extremely ambitious “Ganga
Express-Way” , from NOIDA (New Delhi) to
Ballia, bordering Bihar which could have turned
around the face and fortunes of about half the
’state and at the same time could have improved
the fate of farmers on a big scale, but it did not
get adequate cooperation from the Central
Government for this high ambitious project.

    Besides, a proper use would be made of
“Natural Resources” in the country for
improvement in the economic condition of the
people.”Good and proper use of natural
resources” in the full and honest natural
interest  can play big role in improving the
standard of life of the people here. We are in
favor of providing solution to the problem of
unemployment at the local level by making
“optimum use small resources” of the area itself.
    At the same time, of the land fit for cultivation
and lying vacant with the government
in the entire country, which is not being used,
such “fallow land” at the rate of “3 acres would
be distributed free” on the pattern of Uttar
Pradesh for cultivation to the people of the Sarva
Samaj by giving priority to the poor and
unemployed peole of the SC/s/STs and backward
classes. Not only this, rather villages, kasbas,
towns and big cities in the entire country would
be developed on the pattern of the “Dr.
Ambedkar Gram Vikas Yojana”  and the
“Manyawar Kanshi Ram Ji Shahari Samagra
Vikas Yojana” devised in Uttar Pradesh.

    Thus, our party after coming to power
in the Centre would frame the “Economic
Policy” of the country in every field by keeping
in view interests of the Sarva Samaj for then
only can our party’s dream of “Sarvajan Hitaye
and Sarvajan Sukhaye” be realized. At the same
time, our every economic policy would be
designed to reach “proper benefit to the general
public”, and it will not be of a kind that makes
the “rich richer and the poor poorer” as has
been happening during the rule of the Congress,
the BJP and their supporting parties so far.

    Besides, on coming to power in the
Centre, our government’s  “Foreign Policy” in
every respect would be absolutely in the full
interest of Sarva samajand the country; in
other words, while framing foreign policy and
reaching international agreements special care
would be taken of the security of the country
as also of the country’s honour,self-respect and
sovereignty, it would not be mortgaged the way
it was done by the Congress-led UPA
Government while entering into the Indo-
American Nuclear Deal in the year of 2008.

    In brief, it is the contention of our party
that if the people of the “Bahujan Samaj and
 the Upper Caste Samaj” wish to create all over
the country an atmosphere akin to that ensures
by the BSP government of Uttar Pradesh by
securing for the people a “life of self-respect”,
they would have to take the”Master Key of
political power” into their own hands by
showing a good result in the Lok Sabha general
elections being held in the country now.

    But for achieving success in this, they
would certainly have to be alert against “many
tactics like “Saam, Daam, Dand, Bhedh”
(cajolery, inducement, coercion, divisive
politics) etc., of opposition parties because
opposition parties can go to any extent to harm
our party and its electoral prospect.

    And in this regard, opposition parties
would make fullest efforts to see to it that our
party cannot at any cost get the votes of the
people of Upper caste society , and for this,
opposition parties may also try to present a
distorted picture about our party’s “ideology and
policies”, whereas the ideologies and policies of
our party are not against any caste and religion,
rather the “BSP wishes to unite in a spirit of
brotherhood the people fragmented in this
country on the basis of caste and vans in order
to establish here a ‘humanity-based Equalitarian
Social Order’, which is in fullest interest of the
Sarva samaj and the country an in which all
the people are equal and share mutual fraternal
feelings, then only the inequitable social
order prevalent in the country be uprooted.

    And if in this missionary work of “Social
Transformation”, the people of the “Upper
caste society” also along with the “Bahujan
Samaj” extend their cooperation, doors would
be found open for such people for admission to
and advancement in the Bahujan Samaj Party.

    In this regard, I also wish to make it, clear
here that had the “ideology and policies” of our
party been against the “Upper Caste Samaj”, why
would our party have kept the people of these
class at the national and state levels in its
organizations? Also, why would it have fielded
them in the Lok sabha and Assembly elections
on its tickets and given them respectable position
of ministers on formation of its government in Uttar
Pradesh? In other words, the ideology and all
the policies of our party are pro-Sarva Samaj
and based on the ideal humanistic principle of
“Sarvajan Hitaye and Sarvajan Sukhaye”.

    Besides,  also wish to make it clear, here
about the “ideology and policies” of that BSP that
an “Equalitarian Social Order” is not going to be
established in the country by organizing only the
people of  the “Bahujan Samaj” alone. For this,
we would also have to take along the Upper caste
Hindus on the basis of “social brothrhood” by
changing their cattiest mindset, then only an
“Equalitarian Social Order” in a real sense, in
accordance with the thinking of the architect of
Country’s Constitution Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao
Ambedkar, can be established in our country, and
it is only after this that the Sarva Samaj can  be
fully united and divisions of “high” and “low” and
caste and creed can come to an end in the society
here for ever and then only the people can get
full opportunity of advancing in every walk of life.

    But the BSP people would have to bear
this in mind that the Congress, BJP and their
supporting parties will not allow our party to
come to power so easily here in the Centre and
to prevent our party from com in to power in
the Centre all the opposition parties will use
“tactics of every kind like cajolery,
inducement, coercion, divisive politics
etc.,” and the party people would have to be
very alert against it at every step.

    What is meant is that at the time of the
Lok Sabha general elections being held in the
country, all the opposition parties can influence
your votes by misleading you with “inducements
and assurances” of various kinds. For this reason,
it is my advice to BSP supporters and well wishers
that you have to be fully alert against all kinds
of tactics employed by the Congress, BJP and
their allies during the elections.

    And in this regard, what merits particular
attention here is that whenever these opposition
parties have there governments in the Centre and
the states, then for the first 3-4 years they do
not bother even a little bit about the interests of
the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, other
backward classes (OBCs), religious minorities and
the poor and unemployed people from the Upper
castes and farmers, workers, traders, employees
and the people engaged in other occupations, but
when the time of elections comes close the
interests of these classes suddenly come to the
mind of these opposition parties and then these
parties start using “electoral tactics” of different
kinds such as making many populist laws and
rules in their interests, distributing scholarships,
cheap wheat and rice and other populist relief
acts of various kinds. But once the elections are
over, these opposition parties treat these laws
and rules as garbage and discard them in the
garbage bin and the work of relief etc., then
comes to an end until the next elections.

    Besides, attempts could also be made by
thé opposition par ties during the elections to garners
your votes by spreading rumors of different
kinds against which also our party people need
to be extremely vigilant. At the same time, it is
also my “APPEAL” to the people and
sympathisers  of BSP that “you remain fully alert ,
your vote is invaluable, ensure that none of your
votes can be purchased nor could be looted.
Neither it is left uncast nor it is misused by any
selfish element ensnare you in the name of caste
and creed, by using money power or by inciting
feelings over the issue of temple and mosque,
in other words, you have to defend democracy
with all your might.

    Therefore, in the interest of Sarva
Samaj, your respective state and country,
you have to entrust power in the centre into
the hands of the right party, that is Bahujan Samaj
Party (BSP) so that the party’s government
through this power can frame each one of its
policies in every walk of life in accordance with
the principle of “Sarvajan Hitaye and
Sarvajan Sukhaye i.e., Progress and
Prosperity For All” and thereby make the life
of the “Bahujan Samaj and poor and unemployed
people from Upper/high caste society happy and
prosperous in a dignified manner.”

In the end keeping all these matters in
view, I make this “APPEAL” to all the supporters,
followers  and well wishers of the BSP that they
should not be misled by any populist promises
made in the “election manifestos” of opposition
parties, in other words, they should act only on
this “APPEAL” of their own party and must
make all the BSP candidates in this general
elections being held for the Lok Sabha victorious

by pressing the button facing the B.S.P. election
symbol “Elephant”of their party. I fully have
this expectation from the people of my party,
its supporters and well wishers.

It
is a sad news that Vanniyar mob attack SC/ST cheri in Chidambaram after
polls. SC/STs must unite behind BSP, the most powerful movement of
social transformation. Backward communities instead of uniting with
SC/STs for political reforms are rallying with the stealth cult RSS’s
Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi. They utilise them during elections like scape
goats led by the poojari to the bali peet. There are used like use and
throw curry leaves. SC/STs are suffering because there is a belief that
they have no soul so that they could be harmed by the 1st rate souls.
Unfortunately the 2nd, 3rd, 4th rate souls have accepted them to be the
1st rate soul. The Buddha never believed in any soul. he said all are
equal. That is the reason why Baba saheb Dr. B.R.Ambedkar made them to
return back to Buddhism. The Constitution provides them all protection.
Only when the MASTER KEY is acquired by them all doors of progress and
development will be unlocked.

Sarva Samaj i.e., All Societies
including SCs/STs/OBCs/Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains
and Buddhists in UP trust BSP for clean administration and protection.

“Narendra
Modi is to UP’s  Muslims what Hitler is to Jews,” says Dr Mohibul Haq,
asst professor of political science in Aligarh Muslim University. “True,
there is fear of scared stealth cult RSS’s Bahuth Jiyadha Paapi Modi
because of his hatred, anger, intolerance, irritation, jealousy,
delusion which are defilement of the mind that needs treatment in mental
asylum among the minorities in UP and elsewhere among sarvasamaj i.e.,
all societies who are scared by him for the sake of votes for his greed
of power. but we also have a strategy to deal with his rising ambitions.
Since sarvasamaj i.e., all societies belong to the same single race.

IN
THIS WORLD OF GODS AND MEN,TOGETHER WITH MAARAS, BRAHMAS AND THE
COMMUNITY OF RECLUSES AND BRAHMINS I DO NOT SEE ANYONE COULD CONFUSE
VOTERS MIND, OR SPLIT THEIR HEART, OR TAKEN BY THEIR FEET COULD THROW
THEM TO THE OTHER BANK OF THE RIVER.

Willy-nilly, this has made
the Bahujan Samaj Party as the clear winner among the choice before
sarvasamaj i.e., all societies including minority voters here. “Muslims
are conscious of the fact that they hold the second biggest voting
strength, and if they unite with other marginalised sections in Uttar
Pradesh, such as SCs/STs and backwards, poor brahmins, baniyas,
ksatiyas, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists they will be
able to constitute no less than 44 percent of total votes and crossing
more than 70 seats out of 80 in UP.” Hence, the BSP which is the only
hope and alternative as the preferred option.

By birth one does
not become an outcaste, untouchable, unseeable, or a brahmin. By actions
one becomes an outcaste untouchable, unseeable, and a brahmin”.

When
this was said, the brahmin Aggikabhàradvàja said thus to the Blessed
One: Good Awakened One with Awareness, now I know, to me it seems that
something  overturned is re-installed, something covered is made
manifest. It seems as though the path was shown to one who had lost his
way. It seemsas though an oil lamp was lighted for the darkness, so that
those who have eyes could see forms. In various ways good Awakened One
with Awareness has explained the Teaching. Now I take refuge in good
Awakened One with Awareness, the Teaching and the Community of the noble
and wise. May good Awakened One with Awareness think of me as one who
has taken
refuge from today until life lasts”.

“Faith, is the
foremost wealth to man, the Teaching well practiced brings pleasantness.
Of tastes truth is the foremost The livelihood of
one living wisely is said to be the foremost. “

With
faith, the flood is crossed, with diligence the ocean, With effort
unpleasantness gets exhausted, and with wisdom purity comes
about”
Placing
faith in the perfect state and the Teaching to attain extinction, Those
that listen to it diligently and discriminateingly
gain wisdom.

Those
suitably yoked with aroused effort experience the Teaching. Through
truthfulness Ms MAYAWATIJI became famous and by giving VOTERS are bound.

To
a householder with faith, if there be truthfulness, training, Right
view and generosity, he or she would not grieve afterwards.

Now
come on, question other recluses and brahmins, to know, Whether there is
much truthfulness, training, generosity and forbearance evident here.

What is there to question now, from recluses and brahmins. Today I know what is essential for the next government.

It is for our good that the Awakened One came to this world, Now we know that, VOTE given to whom is of much fruit.

When walking, standing, sitting or even lying, it is bending and stretching, These are the movements of the body.

Bones
and veins bound together are covered up with flesh and skin, The body
is covered up with the skin, and the true state is not seen.

The inside is full, the stomach is full with the liver and sexual organs, So also with the heart, lungs, kidneys and the spleen.

It is also full of snot, saliva, sweat and oil of the body, With blood, oil of the joints, bile and the hardened oil.

Then from the nine external doors secrete filth all the time. Through the eyes and ears there are secretions.

There
is snot coming from the nose and through the mouth vomit, So also bile
or phlegm is vomited, from all over the body sweat trickles.

His perforated scull is filled with marrow, The fool deluded thinks it is something agreeable.

When
he lies on his back dead, bloated and turned blue, And thrown into the
charnel ground, he is not owned by his relatives.
It is eaten
by dogs, jackals, wolves and worms, Crows and hawks too eat it, and whatever other creatures there be.

The
bhikkhu hearing the words of the Awakened One, becomes wise, Looks at
the body as it really is, and learns it thoroughly.
As I am
now, this body also was: as this body is, so I will be, Thus he dispels interest for the body internally and externally.

The bhikkhu dispelling interest and greed for the body becomes wise. Realises deathless appeasement and experiences extinction.

This two footed thing is filth giving out a bad smell. It is full of various kinds of filth and strews them here and there.

With such a body, if one thinks conceitedly, Or if he talks low of others, -what is it other than lacking in wisdom.

Then Why this “jadhiveri Kolaveri Kolaveri Kolaveri Da?”

April 12, 2014



Guest Post by SAJAN VENNIYOOR



What is the purpose of a political ad?



The page-killer print ad, the giant
hoarding, the radio jingle and the TV spot do not serve to inform or
educate the public, but only to impress them. These are peacock tails,
gambling on the handicap principle
that reliable signals must be costly to the signaler, and cannot be
afforded by those with less worth. They are public displays of political
virility, the media equivalent of a baboon’s red butt which signals the
animal’s potency not just to the female but to the entire tribe.



BABOON

Appealing to a target audience



Last month, DNA newspaper reported that
the Congress is ‘buying endless radio air time in Mumbai promoting the
Rajiv Awaas Yojana, the UPA’s flagship housing scheme.’



“I was told by a frustrated journalist friend,” says the correspondent,
“that this was a classic example of ignorant, senseless media planners
and buyers in the industry. The Rajiv Awaas Yojana, she told me, was not
even applicable in Mumbai.” Obviously, this rookie journo, like the EC,
doesn’t get the point. These ads are not meant for the beneficiaries,
any more than full page MNREGA ads in the Times of India, Delhi edition,
were meant to be read by unemployed, landless peasants.



The information content in most political ads can be written on the margins of a bus ticket, with enough room left over for the Hanuman Chalisa.
For his 1952 presidential campaign, Adlai Stevenson had bought
half-hour commercials on TV, but the pundits of Madison Avenue were
already beginning to package candidates like Fruit Loops. (Stevenson
actually did say, “The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high
office like breakfast cereal is the ultimate indignity to the
democratic process.”)



Political ads don’t appeal to the human intellect. They play on our hopes and fears, and seldom rise above the level of dim-witted symbolism that supposedly cost Rajiv Gandhi the 1989 elections, or the Rs. 700 crore India Shining
campaign dreamt up by the whiz kids of Grey Worldwide in cahoots with
NDA’s finance minister Jaswant Singh, that doomed the BJP in 2004.



“‘India Shining’ is all about pride,”
said Pratap Suthan, who coined the memorable slogan. “It gives us
brown-skinned Indians a huge sense of achievement,” he said, shortly
before being struck by an iceberg and sinking without a trace.



Kabab and sharab



Channeling campaign funds through
political ads on radio and TV, rather than directly to voters in cash
and kind, is little more than a switch from illegal corruption to legal
corruption.



The media’s laid backness about political
advertisements, its own bread and butter, is in stark contrast to its
moral indignation about liquor distribution to the poor. Come the
elections, the media erupts in a rash of reports on the ‘illicit flow of
liquor and money’ in ‘Expenditure Sensitive Pockets” (read: slums)
where, one is led to believe, no illicit liquor flows otherwise. Daily
sales and stock positions of over 10,000 liquor shops are being closely
monitored in Goa, the press informs us with grim satisfaction. (10,000 liquor shops in a state the size of a pool table? Holy cow).



There were three consecutive dry days
during poll week in Delhi this month and it’s not surprising that
enterprising bootleggers stocked up in anticipation of demand. Still,
the headlines scream,
“25000 litres of illicit liquor seized in Delhi ahead of Lok Sabha
polls”, helpfully illustrated with pictures of Grand Marnier, Kahlua and
Cointreau bottles implying that Delhi voters, while susceptible of
inducement, are men of refinement and excellent taste.



booze“Un plus bouteille de Chartreuse, camarade, s’il vous plaît”



This Brahminical abhorrence of free
alcohol should be contrasted with the intellectual pleasure derived from
contemplating 80 foot hoardings of Dr. J Jayalalithaaa or watching the Modi Rap
on TV. Ranging from dire predictions that “democracy will vanish if
bribing voters becomes standard practice” (Prabhu Chawla) to incoherent
noises indicative of disapproval (Arnab Goswami), the thought of voters
being bribed with alcohol and cash gets the knickers of news anchors and
op-ed writers in a twist.



Perhaps it wouldn’t be so bad if poor voters were given the Collected Works of Vivekananda or bottles of gangajal.



Just days before the Lok Sabha elections
kicked off, I read with dismay in the newspapers that quantities of IMFL
were seized in excise raids across the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
“Police strongly believes that such large numbers of liquor bottles were
kept for using the same before and during elections by political
parties,” said one news report. Though “no link with any political party
has been found yet”, such large quantities of liquor, opined Andaman Sheekha darkly, raises many questions.



Having spent a few blissful years in Port
Blair, I have fond memories my friendly neighbourhood bootlegger. 
Karupiah, as I’ll call him, had a modest but steady business, and he
prudently stocked a crate or two of IMFL in anticipation of dry days,
like polling dates.



On any given day, raids across the Andaman & Nicobar Islands would produce illicit IMFL bottles by the score.



On any given day, especially a dry day,
raids across India would produce illicit liquor bottles by the
thousands. Yet the media, the Election Commission, the excise department
and various other uniformed organs of the state prefer to ignore this
minor fact of life in the moral panic that sets in shortly before
elections.



The media is obsessed with liquor
bottles. They have a particular loathing of the half and quarter bottle,
as popularized by Keshto Mukherjee in 1970s movies, symbolic of the
sottish habits of the underclass. In aspirational India, many
respondents cheerfully admit they’d sell their votes for cash, mobile
phones and TV sets, but cheap liquor seldom figures on their wish-list.
Yet, of all the gifts – sarees, cricket sets, mobile phones,
mixer-grinders, TV sets and laptops, to name but a few – by which the
upstanding Indian citizen is induced to part with his vote, the one
that’s guaranteed to send a frisson of horror riding up the spines of TV anchors is alcohol.



The Representation of People Act 1951 is,
of course, pretty anal about the “receipt of, or agreement to receive,
any gratification, whether as a motive or a reward” by voters. Nishkama karma is
the watchword. Former Chief Election Commissioner Dr. SY Quraishi is
particularly scathing about feasts thrown by rich candidates for their
poor constituents, especially the lavish helpings of “biryanis, kababs and sharaabthat mark pre-poll festivities.



The notion that a tot of IMFL or an extra helping of galouti kabab
might unduly influence voters comes naturally to the former CEC (though
the suggestion that an endless stream of government propaganda
masquerading as ‘awareness programmes’ might also unduly influence the
voter would be pooh-poohed by the former Director General of
Doordarshan, Dr. SY Quraishi).



The Advertising Code of the Cable TV
Networks (Regulations) Act is pretty clear that “no advertisement shall
be permitted, the objects whereof, are wholly or mainly of a religious
or political nature; advertisements must not be directed towards any
religious or political end”. This code also applies to radio, but you
wouldn’t think so if you were to switch on a TV set or radio these days,
where there’s probably more political ads than programming.



When TV channels, outraged at seeing cash
and alcohol flow into the grubby hands of voters instead of their own,
petitioned the Andhra High Court to strike down the ban on political
ads, the government argued that the “prohibition on ads of political
nature on cable networks is to prevent well-funded and resourceful
individuals or organisations from using money power and the power of TV
advertising to distort the balance of political debate and the electoral
process”.



Nevertheless, the Andhra HC lifted the
ban in 2004, saying that the law against political ads on TV was
“violative of the right to freedom of trade and business”.  Spending
crores of rupees on political ads and infantile jingles is evidently
more virtuous than giving away saris to poor women, especially if you
own a TV channel.



The Advertising Code for broadcasters
still prohibits political ads, but, with the blessings of the Supreme
Court and the Election Commission, TV channels earn millions from
election campaign ads. Estimates put the total advertisement and
publicity budget across political parties at Rs. 4,000-5,000 crore.



(Having won the right to carry political
ads, TV channels are now engaged in a bitter fight to stop the regulator
from enforcing a 12 minute cap on TV ads. As Amarchand & Mangaldas –
the law firm of choice for many media companies – admits, TV networks
have “reluctantly agreed […] to confine advertising to less than 30
minutes”, which confirms what we have always suspected, that
advertisements routinely exceed programming on many TV channels).



Giving back to the giver



The concept of the media as an impartial
and virtuous intermediary between political parties and the voter is of
fairly recent vintage. The need for a righteous intermediary to
intercede with janata janardhan is, as far as I can tell, a Brahminical construct. “In the mythic introduction to the ancestral offerings, Apastamba says: tatra pitaro devata brahmanas tv ahavaniyarthe (In this (ritual) the Pitrs are the divinity, but the Brahmins stand in for the offertorial fire).”



And not just any old Brahmins, but ones in good standing in society, with high TRPs.



Also, if you please, navavaran bhojayed ayujah (feed an uneven number of Brahmins – but at least nine) srothriyan vagrupavayahsilasampannan (or as many as you can afford) which, as we know, is the fundamental principle behind media planning and buying.



Elections in India are no longer the
riotous celebration of democracy they once were. They have become
sterile, bureaucratic exercises run by media planners – and the Vogons
of Nirvachan Bhavan – who have taken all the joy out of street-level
campaigning. It is not surprising that the party best known for taking
the battle to the streets – a few slaps notwithstanding – is the Aam
Admi Party, which is also the only one that says government should pay
for equal advertising for all political parties. According to the AAP
manifesto, “Political parties [are] to be provided equitable access to
information and media space. Distortions of the media such as paid news,
unlimited media advertisement and misuse of public money for
advertising the ruling party to be regulated.”



This is not entirely an original idea.
The equitable sharing of airtime on TV and other electronic media during
elections is already in the Representation of the People Act (Section
39A). The possibility that rich parties and candidates could,
inequitably, buy loads of air-time on radio & TV is not recognized
either by the Representation of the People Act or the Cable TV Networks
Act.



Invested as they are in media ad campaigns,
the Election Commission fails to understand the meaning of gift-giving.
Like the Canadian government that banned potlatches, the EC condemns
the ancient tradition of the gift-giving feast as ‘bribery’, and
considers it unproductive, illegal and contrary to civilized values.



By the way, the Kwakwaka’wakw responded creatively to the anti-potlatch law passed by the Canadian government:



Sometimes, they held potlatches around Christmas time,
arguing that they were following the Christian tradition of distributing
presents. At other times they gave away sacks of flour and sugar as
well as boxes of pilot biscuits, arguing that they were giving their
hungry relatives food. Photographs of such potlatches show stacks of
these commodities, piled high in a manner reminiscent of Hudson’s Bay
blankets. A container holding a commercially-produced foodstuff,
although ostensibly a source of nutrition for hungry relatives, was now
an ingenious indicator of resistance.

Sensible Objects. Colonialism, Museums and Material Culture’, Elizabeth Edwards et al.



Ceremonial gift-giving has never been
about bribery; it’s about demonstrating wealth and prominence,
presumably useful qualities in a leader.



The unstated advantage of channeling corporate campaign funds into political ads, instead of kababs and sharaab,
is that the money eventually comes back to the giver. Between them, the
Ambani brothers own substantial chunks of Indian media, with Mukesh
Ambani controlling some 30 TV channels,
including English and regional language news channels, while Anil
Ambani owns internet and mobile portals as well as India’s largest
private FM radio network. In a laudable display of value chain
management, a goodly portion of campaign expenditure flows back into the
Ambani coffers through political ads placed on their media outlets,



The mainstream media is understandably coy about discussing this conflict of interest.



Meanwhile, Jaswant Singh of India Shining
fame, for whom India didn’t shine a whole lot since 2004, fortunately
didn’t lose touch with his inner thakur. By the next elections –
presumably having no access to government funds for expensively banal
ad campaigns – Singh took the direct marketing route and distributed cash to voters
during election meetings in Barmer. “It is my duty to help the poor,”
he mumbled unintelligibly. “If Congress thinks helping poor is a crime, I
cannot help it; I’ll continue to help poor people.”



It’s an old Rajputana tradition.

The mind is supreme
Lalitha K Witanachchi
The Buddha gave his Third Discourse to a set of ascetics who were fire worshippers. They tended the fire by keeping it burning.
The Buddha spoke of the Fires Inside. Even today there are those who tend these fires of which the Buddha spoke.z_p15-The-mind-is.jpg
Let us for a moment examine them, and try to see where they exist.
The mind is the most important aspect of our lives. We have a body and a
mind, but we are more particular about the former.
We take great care of our body. We nurture it from infancy, we take
proper nourishment, we take exercise to keep it trim, and we take
medicine when we are ill. This is as it should be for a healthy body is
important.
But hidden within this outer frame of our body is our mind which we
do not seem to look after and tend as much as we tend our body.
The mind from whence emanate all our thoughts, ideas and beliefs,
often determine the state of our body. Within the mind are likes and
dislikes, loves and hates. It is this mind with its fires within that
often determines our thinking, rules our outlook on life and directs our
motives and aspirations.
Yet our search to satisfy our aspirations and ambitions, may often make us restless, disappointed and dissatisfied.
The Buddha realised that the root cause of our suffering were due to
three factors greed, hatred and ignorance Lobha, Dwesha and Moha. The
fundamental cause was ignorance Avidya, which means “not seeing”. It is a
force that opposes the discovery of the truth.
The Buddha has asked us to be mindful at every stage and detect any
signs of deterioration of the mind. We must repair the mind and rid it
of defilements. For sooner or later these inner fires that the Buddha
warned us against, may get out of control and consume us.
Negative emotions like worry, fear, jealousy, excessive desire or craving, lust, ambition and pride can defile the mind.
We begin to think only of ourselves – and centre our mind around “Me” and say “This is mine”.
Our petty, personal, little self, becomes all important to us. We
manipulate situations to suit ourselves. We build barriers around the
“Me and mine” concept, making us selfish, and conceited as a result.
Similarly others build barriers around themselves. Your neighbour
builds a fence around his property. Your family becomes exclusive, not
wanting to share what they have with their friends or their relations,
and on a larger scale nations tighten the barriers between them, with
sanctions. They view each other with suspicion and arm themselves.
We feed these inner fires by wanting more and more. Then fear arises.
Will thieves steal my jewels at night? We spend sleepless nights in
this mental state.
Mingled with fear is jealousy. Will my neighbour’s son do better than
my own? We make wrong judgements. We make stereotypes of people,
believing that such and such group of people are miserly, another group
is avaricious and so on. All these unwholesome thoughts arise in the
mind.
They are defilements that make us restless and dissatisfied with our lot.
We must get rid of these defilements if we are to have peace of mind.
They are defilements that make us restless and dissatisfied with out
lot. We must get rid of these defilements if we are to have peace of
mind.
The mind if uncontrolled, can go to extremes of acute depression or
exuberant elation. Both conditions fail to five us peace. The mind must
be kept on an even keel, be well balanced – neither too low in the
depths of despair nor at the extreme of euphoria.
The balance is maintained when one realises that no condition is
permanent. There is constant change. For a balanced state with peace of
mind we must apply the balm of insight. The path we must tread is the
Middle Way that the Buddha expounded.
One reason for a person not to have a balanced mind is the feeling of
insecurity. This causes great anguish and fear. But Buddhism offers a
way out of such an insecure position. It is the Noble Eightfold Path.
The first step in this path is Right Understanding. We must try to
see things as they really are, not as we want see them, and wish that
they were. We must not deceive ourselves therefore with our prejudices.
It is essential for us to get know our own emotions – as they really are. We then begin to understand this concept of “I AM.”
We will then understand that the roots of our unhappiness are greed,
hatred and ignorance which hinder us seeing our true selves.
Take greed first of all. We want so much of this and that, and what
others have – material things, money and power. The list is endless. And
so we spoil our personal relationships with others.
Our mind harbours evil thoughts. Hatred defiles the mind – murderous
thoughts, sadistic thoughts, disloyalty, indignation – all these are
defilements. With self examination we shall be able to recognise the
imposters that occupy the crevices of our minds.
The realisation that these imposters are there within, is in itself a step forward in the right direction.
As we progress in this process of self examination or insight
meditation, we should so discipline our perceptions what we realise
there is No Self so that is permanent. Our consciousness is but a series
of awareness, going back to a past that really has no limits. We are
but individuals seeking a way out of the torments of this world.
The beacons that light this dark path are our refuge in the Buddha,
the Enlightened One, His teaching the Dhamma, and his followers the
Sangha who can direct us.
Then we must take the step Right Effort. We need energy.
Then comes Right Mindfulness being cognizant of what one is about,
all the time, so that self-deception vanishes – and we gradually
discover the subterfuge of the ego.
We then carry this practice of mental concentration further to Samadhi – Intensifying our concentration to one-pointedness.
Then when we investigate and study the Buddha Dhamma we gain the last of the five factors which is Wisdom or Panna.
Once we have emerged from the darkness of ignorance we will have
fewer attachments. The feeling of ease will increase. We shall realise
that we are truly liberated.
The path to liberation is not easy. It is beset with many traps and
snares. But there is a beacon to light the way. It is the word of the
Buddha.


Ambedkar and Buddhism
Bhadant Shivani Bodhananda Thera
Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, was the
Architect of the Indian Constitution. Born on April 14, 1891, in Mhow,
Madhya Pradesh, Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was the fourteenth child of his
parents, Bhimabai Sakpal and Ramji.
“Sakpal” was the surname of Bhimrao and “Ambavade” was the name of his native village.
z_p15-Ambedkar-and-Buddhism.jpgTo
avoid the socio-economic discrimination and the ill-treatment of the
higher classes of the society, Bhimrao changed his surname from “Sakpal”
to “Ambedkar” by the help of a Brahmin teacher, who had great faith in
him. Since then, Bhimrao and his family used the title, Ambavedkar.
He was a well-known politician and an eminent jurist. Ambedkar’s
efforts to eradicate the social evils likeuntouchablity and caste
restrictions were remarkable. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar a great scholar, Lawyer
and freedom fighter along with hundreds of thousands of Mahar’s an
untouchable caste, converted to Buddhism and changed the face of
Buddhism in India. Dr. Ambedkar’s conversion was a symbolic protest to
the oppressions of caste inequality.
Bhimrao Ambedkar experienced caste discrimination right from the
childhood. After his retirement from the Indian Army, Bhimrao’s father
settled in Satara Maharashtra. Bhimrao was enrolled in the local school.
Here, he had to sit on the floor in one corner in the classroom and the
teachers would not touch his notebooks. In spite of these hardships,
Bhimrao continued his studies and passed his Matriculation examination
from Bombay Universitywith flying colours in 1908. Bhim Rao Ambedkar
joined the Elphinstone College for further education. In 1912, he
graduated in Political Science and Economics from Bombay University and
got a job in Baroda. In 1913, BhimraoAmbedkar lost his father. In the
same year Maharaja of Baroda awarded scholarship to Bhim Rao Ambedkar
and sent him to America for further studies. Bhimrao reached New York in
July 1913. He immersed himself in the studies and attained a degree in
Master of Arts and a Doctorate in Philosophy from Columbia University in
1916 for his thesis “National Dividend for India: A Historical and
Analytical Study.” From America, Dr.Ambedkar proceeded to London to
study economics and political science. The Maharaja also convened many
meetings and conferences of the “untouchables” which Bhimrao addressed.
In September 1920, after accumulating sufficient funds, Ambedkar went
back to London to complete his studies. He became a barrister and got a
Doctorate in science.
In 1947, when India became Independent, the first Prime Minister Pt.
Jawaharlal Nehru, invited Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar, who had been elected as a
Member of the Constituent Assembly from Bengal, to join his Cabinet as a
Law Minister. The Constituent Assembly entrusted the job of drafting
the Constitution to a committee and Dr. Ambedkar was elected as Chairman
of this Drafting Committee. In February 1948, Dr. Ambedkarpresented the
Draft Constitution before the people of India; it was adopted on
November 26, 1949. In 1950,Ambedkar traveled to Sri Lanka to attend a
convention of Buddhist scholars and monks. After his return he decided
to write a book on Buddhism and soon, converted himself to Buddhism.
Ambedkar founded theBharatiya Bauddha Mahasabha In 1955. His book “The
Buddha and His Dhamma” was published posthumously.
On May 24, 1956, on the occasion of Buddha Jayanti, he declared in
Bombay, that he would adopt Buddhism. On 0ctober 14, 1956 at Nagpur
Maharashtra.he embraced Buddhism along with many of his followers. On
October 14, 1956Ambedkar organized a public ceremony to convert around
five lakh of his supporters into Buddhism. In his speech on the Eve of
the great conversion at Nagpur maharshtra Dr. Ambedkar said that
Buddhism can serve not only this country, India, but the whole World at
this juncture in the world affairs; Buddhism is indispensable for world
peace you must pledge today that you, the followers of Buddha, will not
only work to liberate yourself, but will try to elevate your country and
the world in general.
Ambedkar traveled to Kathmandu to attend the Fourth World Buddhist
Conference. He completed his final manuscript, “The Buddha or Karl Marx”
on December 2, 1956. Dr. Ambedkar dedicated himself to the propagation
of the Buddhist faith in India. He wrote a book on Buddhism titled
“Buddha and His Dhamma” explaining its tenets in simple language to the
common man. His another book is “Revolution and Counter Revolution in
India”. He made the provision for the study of Pali in the Indian
Constitution.
Ambedkar’s whole life and mission was a practical contribution to
humanistic Buddhist education inIndia and not just intellectual and
philosophical. Though he was not a Buddhist by birth but by practice and
at heart he was a Buddhist.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is a pure symbol of hard work, dedication,
commitment, love and humanity. He is a father of Indian constitution and
dynamic character of India’s history. Read on to know more about his
life and struggle against social evils.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is the most dynamic character in India’s
struggle for freedom. Struggle of India’s people was not only against
the British rule. At that time the people also needed to be freed from
the rude customs and traditions which led to exploitation. Also they
need to be freed form the customs and traditions which led to the raise
in concepts like untouchability.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar played an important role in the welfare of the
downtrodden in India. He showed them a path which not only led to their
development but also the development of India. Read on to know more
about some facts of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s life.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar studied in the prestigious Columbia University
in New York in 1913. The experience of studying in USA was very amazing
and refreshing for him as he was away from the social discrimination
and hardships resulting due to it. However, He did not get carried away
with all these things. He studied for eighteen hours a day. He completed
his M.A in two years and his main subjects were Economics and
Sociology. The very next year of completion of his M.A, he completed his
PhD thesis too.
After completing his studies he came back to India and got a job in
Baroda Civil Service. Once again he had to face this worst Hindu system
of humiliating untouchables. He decided to give a strong answer to this
treatment given to untouchables.
His weekly publication Mooknayak was one of tools which he used to
struggle against untouchability. He used this tool for criticizing
traditional Hindu political leaders and practices of cast
discrimination. He delivered various speeches to encourage the
untouchables to fight against social discrimination.
He also started taking meetings known as Bahiskrit Hitakarani Sabha
for the encouraging the welfare, education and social development of
lower class. He also undertook massive movements to give rights to
untouchables to share common source of drinking water with others and
enter the temples. Sculptor of Indian constitution
After Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar returned from a Buddhist conference in
Sri Lanka in 1950, he addressed people in Bombay. He appealed all his
people to follow Buddhism to put end to all their sufferings. He also
decided to spend rest of his life in learning more about Buddhism and
encouraging people to follow Buddhism. Therefore on 14th October 1956 he
organised a ceremony at NAGPUR the second capital of maharshtra the
land of naga after it called DIKSHABHOOMI. where lakhs of people came
and accepted Buddhism as their religion along with him.
One of the features of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s multidimensional
character was that he had great love for books. His interest in reading
was so deep that he could concentrate on reading even in crowded or very
noisy places. He could read books even during having a normal
discussion with his friends, family or colleagues. He was successful to
put end to the sufferings of millions. He is a pure example and
inspiration of hard work, dedication, commitment, love and humanity.

Buddhist reflection on death
V F Gunaratna
To the average man death is by no means a pleasant subject or talk
for discussion. It is something dismal and oppressive — a veritable
kill-joy, a fit topic for a funeral house only.z_p15-Buddhist.jpg
The average man immersed as he is in the self, ever seeking after the
pleasurable, ever pursuing that which excites and gratifies the senses,
refuses to pause and ponder seriously that these very objects of
pleasure and gratification will some day reach their end.
If wise counsel does not prevail and urge the unthinking
pleasure-seeking man to consider seriously that death can knock at his
door also, it is only the shock of a bereavement under his own roof, the
sudden and untimely death of a parent, wife or child that will rouse
him up from his delirious round of sense-gratification and rudely awaken
him to the hard facts of life. Then only will his eyes open, then only
will he begin to ask himself why there is such a phenomenon as death.
Why is it inevitable? Why are there these painful partings which rob
life of its joys?
To most of us, at some moment or another, the spectacle of death must
have given rise to the deepest of thoughts and profoundest of
questions. What is life worth, if able bodies that once performed great
deeds now lie flat and cold, senseless and lifeless? What is life worth,
if eyes that once sparkled with joy, eyes that once beamed with love
are now closed forever, bereft of movement, bereft of life? Thoughts
such as these are not to be repressed. It is just these inquiring
thoughts, if wisely pursued, that will ultimately unfold the
potentialities inherent in the human mind to receive the highest truths.
According to the Buddhist way of thinking, death, far from being a
subject to be shunned and avoided, is the key that unlocks the seeming
mystery of life. It is by understanding death that we understand life;
for death is part of the process of life in the larger sense. In another
sense, life and death are two ends of the same process and if you
understand one end of the process, you also understand the other end.
Hence, by understanding the purpose of death we also understand the
purpose of life.
It is the contemplation of death, the intensive thought that it will
some day come upon us, that softens the hardest of hearts, binds one to
another with cords of love and compassion, and destroys the barriers of
caste, creed and race among the peoples of this earth all of whom are
subject to the common destiny of death. Death is a great leveler. Pride
of birth, pride of position, pride of wealth, pride of power must give
way to the all-consuming thought of inevitable death. It is this
leveling aspect of death that made the poet say:
“Scepter and crown

Must tumble down

And in the dust be equal made

With the poor crooked scythe and spade.”
It is the contemplation of death that helps to destroy the
infatuation of sense-pleasure. It is the contemplation of death that
destroys vanity. It is the contemplation of death that gives balance and
a healthy sense of proportion to our highly over-wrought minds with
their misguided sense of values. It is the contemplation of death that
gives strength and steadiness and direction to the erratic human mind,
now wandering in one direction, now in another, without an aim, without a
purpose. It is not for nothing that the Buddha has, in the very highest
terms, commended to his disciples the practice of mindfulness regarding
death. This is known as “marananussati bhavana.” One who wants to
practice it must at stated times, and also every now and then, revert to
the thought maranam bhavissati — “death will take place.”
This contemplation of death is one of the classical
meditation-subjects treated in the Visuddhi Magga which states that in
order to obtain the fullest results, one should practice this meditation
in the correct way, that is, with mindfulness (sati), with a sense of
urgency (samvega) and with understanding (ñana). For example, suppose a
young disciple fails to realize keenly that death can come upon him at
any moment, and regards it as something that will occur in old age in
the distant future; his contemplation of death will be lacking strength
and clarity, so much so that it will run on lines which are not
conducive to success.
How great and useful is the contemplation of death can be seen from
the following beneficial effects enumerated in the Visuddhi Magga: —
“The disciple who devotes himself to this contemplation of death is
always vigilant, takes no delight in any form of existence, gives up
hankering after life, censures evil doing, is free from craving as
regards the requisites of life, his perception of impermanence becomes
established, he realizes the painful and soulless nature of existence
and at the moment of death he is devoid of fear, and remains mindful and
self-possessed. Finally, if in this present life he fails to attain to
Nibbana, upon the dissolution of the body he is bound for a happy
destiny.”
Thus it will be seen that mindfulness of death not only purifies and
refines the mind but also has the effect of robbing death of its fears
and terrors, and helps one at that solemn moment when he is gasping for
his last breath, to face that situation with fortitude and calm. He is
never unnerved at the thought of death but is always prepared for it. It
is such a man that can truly exclaim, “O death, where is thy sting?Ó

Untouchability

Another ‘Gujarat model’

Show Caption

A study on untouchability practices in 1,589 villages in Gujarat provides

critical data for the Dalit movement to shape its interventions at the

national and international levels. By ANUPAMA KATAKAM



DESPITE laws making it punishable, untouchability continues to exist in the

country in a vicious manner. A study titled “Understanding Untouchability:

A Comprehensive Study of Practices and Conditions in 1,589 villages”,

conducted in Gujarat by the Navsarjan Trust, an organisation that promotes

the rights of Dalits, in collaboration with the Robert E. Kennedy Centre

for Justice and Human Rights, puts together staggering data on the

obnoxious practice that gets neglected by both the State and Central

governments. The survey was conducted from 2007 to 2010.



A sample of the findings indicates how deep the rot is. In 98.4 per cent of

the villages surveyed, inter-caste marriage was prohibited, and inter-caste

couples would be subjected to violence and would often have to leave the

village. In 98.1 per cent of the villages, a Dalit could not rent a house

in a non-Dalit locality. In 97.6 per cent of the villages, Dalits touching

the water pots or utensils of non-Dalits was considered defilement. In 97.2

per cent of the villages, Dalit religious leaders would never be asked to

perform a religious ceremony in a non-Dalit area.



The report says it is essential to note that while citizens’ groups and

human rights activists have been advocating Dalit rights, the lack of

political will has been a major setback to attempts to abolish

untouchability. The introduction to the report states: “There is systematic

underestimation of the practice of untouchability within modern India; the

perpetuation of a wide variety of abuses is allowed to continue with

impunity; there is a general lack of awareness and sensitivity to the

pervasiveness of the problem; and, consequently, there is limited political

will to address and change the situation.”



Martin Macwan of Navsarjan, who spearheaded the study, says, “Navsarjan has

experienced first hand that a deeper understanding gained by intensive data

collections leads to the development of more effective strategies to

address the continued practice of untouchability.” The organisation expects

the study will provide critical data for the Dalit movement to shape its

interventions at the national and international levels. According to

Macwan, untouchability is a deeply complex problem. “It is a crime to

practise untouchability, but the caste system is not a crime, which is the

root of the problem. People believe it is part of a belief and nothing is

wrong with that,” he says.



Most people tend to look at untouchability in isolation, he says, while it

is in reality closely linked to the economic, social and political

structure. Citing an example, he says the government itself marks out

separate burial lands for Dalits. The politician will not oppose it, says

Macwan, but rather encourage it for short-term gains.



Although the study was conducted in Gujarat, Macwan and his team believe it

is a pointer to a problem that exists across the country on a similar

scale. The report says: “The issue of untouchability is one of the most

divisive issues in the country’s history and a lived experience of all

people in India, including both Dalits, who number over 164 million, and

non-Dalit perpetrators and witnesses.”



To meet the study’s goals, an international team of human rights activists,

lawyers and academics with distinct areas of specialisation assembled in

2007 to define the diverse set of practices that constitute the legally and

almost conceptually amorphous term “untouchability” in a manner that would

reflect the experiences Dalits live through every day. Explaining its

methodology, the report says the study did not seek Dalit communities’

opinions on the various conditions and practices to which they were

subjected (for instance, what they feel about these practices).

Accordingly, the resulting research is intended to be a census of

untouchability and not a public opinion survey.



The study team conducted the census at the community level and the

household level involving the entire Dalit population in a village. A

randomisation process selected which locale would be subject to which

approach.



*Untouchability index*



The team spoke to 5,462 respondents in 1,589 villages over a two-year

period. The researchers formulated an index of untouchability after

identifying 98 distinct practices of discrimination and clustered them into

eight categories: 1) water for drinking, 2) food and beverage, 3) religion,

4) touch, 5) access to public facilities and institutions, 6) caste-based

occupations, 7) prohibitions and social sanctions and 8) private sector

discrimination. The survey was on both vertical and horizontal

discrimination, that is, discrimination by a non-Dalit against a Dalit and

discrimination by a Dalit against another Dalit. Seeking to understand the

pervasiveness of untouchability, the surveyors asked the villagers a series

of questions pertaining to their everyday lives, such as “can you get water

from the village well without assistance?” The answers helped in collating

crucial and relevant data.



A practice most prevalent across all the villages examined (at 98 per cent)

was the failure to serve tea to Dalits in non-Dalit households. Even if tea

was served, it was done so in a separate cup called “rampatar”–vessel of

Ram.



In approximately 96 per cent of the villages, Dalit labourers were served

lunch separately from other workers. Any leftover food touched by them was

thrown away, untouched by any non-Dalit. Further, in 94 per cent of the

villages, when the community gathered, Dalits were asked to sit in a

separate place to eat, to bring their own plates, or to eat after

non-Dalits had finished.



With regard to practices concerning religious activity, the study suggests

that in almost all of the villages surveyed (97 per cent), Dalits were not

allowed to touch articles used for religious rituals. In 96 per cent of the

villages, non-Dalits would not come to Dalit localities to perform

religious services.



The report states that in 90 per cent of the villages, Dalits were not

allowed to enter public temples. In 92 per cent of the villages, *prasad*,

or a portion of the food offered to the deity, was thrown to Dalits without

any physical contact.



The study also found that in approximately 96 per cent of the cases, it was

forbidden for a Dalit to enter an upper-caste house.



In less than half (44 per cent) of the villages, it was considered

defilement if Dalits splattered water on a non-Dalit even at common bathing

places or when a Dalit washed his or her hands or clothes. Additionally, in

38 per cent of the villages, a Dalit even accidentally touching a non-Dalit

was considered defilement.



Some of the clearest forms of vertical caste discrimination were in

restrictions with regard to private and public spaces. In 87 per cent of

the villages surveyed, Dalits were not allowed to hire cooking pots for

wedding ceremonies. Further, Dalits could not use the services of local

barbers (in 73 per cent of the villages), potters (in 61 per cent of the

villages) and tailors (in 33 per cent of the villages).



In 29 per cent of the villages, Dalits were denied access to common wells

or taps, and in 71 per cent of the villages, there was no water tap in the

Dalit area of the village. “Given that water is essential for so many

aspects of life–especially in a rural context –this form of discrimination

is especially inhuman. Particularly astounding is that, in 10 per cent of

the villages, Dalits were not able to receive the services of the village’s

private doctor, even though failure to do so is potentially fatal,” says

the report.



*Horizontal discrimination*



The researchers also highlight a few practices that are not in the index.

For instance, in 95.8 per cent of the villages, Dalits belonging to a

dominant sub-caste would enforce the practice where lower sub-caste Dalits

must remove carcasses. In 92.4 per cent of the villages, all Dalits did not

have access to Dalit burial grounds. In 91.4 per cent of the villages,

lower sub-caste Dalits had to collect the clothes discarded at burials, and

they are expected to wear them as their clothing. Dalit children were

always segregated and made to sit separately in classrooms.



Akin to vertical discrimination, but apparently not as severe, is the

discrimination by a Dalit against another Dalit. The report says that in

almost all villages, lower sub-caste Dalits had to sit separately from the

rest of the Dalit community during special meals. In 78 per cent of the

villages, lower sub-caste Dalit farm workers were not provided with water

on a higher sub-caste Dalit’s farm. “With regard to perhaps the most valued

of resources, those at the bottom are consistently discriminatory toward

others who share their plight,” the report says.



Another most prevalent form of horizontal discrimination concerns religious

activity. Specifically, in 80 per cent of the villages, lower sub-caste

Dalits were not allowed to sit with higher sub-caste Dalits when a

religious discourse was on even if the discourse took place in the home of

a Dalit.



In 64 per cent of the villages, despite there being a law that reserves a

certain proportion of seats for Dalit panchayat members relative to the

Dalit population, including having a provision to elect a Dalit head of the

local governing council, lower sub-caste Dalit members of the panchayat had

to often sit on the floor.



Other forms of discrimination include Dalit midwives refusing to assist

lower sub-caste Dalits or some others refusing to be treated by lower

sub-caste nurses. An important area of concern is Dalits’ access to

*gauchar *land, a public grazing area, which is required for their

livelihood. In 59 per cent of the villages, *gauchar *land access was

restricted to lower sub-caste Dalits. In some cases, lower sub-caste Dalits

were not allowed to dance at a Dalit-specific village celebration.

*Radical changes required*



The study emphatically points out that “understanding untouchability is

crucial to ending untouchability. Without understanding the problem, the

Government of India will never be able to fully address the issue and

fulfil the human rights obligations owed to Dalit citizens.”



It makes several critical points about the current status of

untouchability. Given the situation at the panchayat level where a Dalit

cannot even sit on a chair, reservation is not enough, it says.

Additionally, India’s human rights obligations are deficient, say the

researchers. “Faced with poverty, oppression and exploitation, Dalits have

a very difficult time reporting atrocities or other violations of law and

realising their constitutional right to non-discrimination,” says the

report.



The Navsarjan Trust believes that the data provided could be used to make

effective intervention towards eradicating untouchability in India.
