538 Part 2 of L.K. Advani's utterances, भाग २ श्री ऎल् के अद्वानी के भाषण భాగం ౨ శ్రీ ఎల్ కే అద్వానీ గారి భాషణలు, వ్రాతలు.

Mr. L.K. Advani is a very Senior leader of BJP, who has dedicated his life to his party. He has also served India very faithfully as its Information & Broadcasting Minister during the 1st Janata Experiment, Home Minister and Dy. Prime Minister, during the 1999-2004 Shining India, BJP Rule of Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Advani is BJP's father figure along with Vajpayee and Murali Manohar Joshi.

World Language English, Latin Script

Whatever I am writing here in this particular blog post is tentative, pending receipt of reactions of readers, and other stakeholders in political blogs.

On the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of Imposition of Internal Emergency in India, Mr. L.K. Advani, in an interview with Indian Express, was reported to have said:

"...India’s political system is still to come to terms with the Emergency and a similar suspension of civil liberties could not be ruled out in the future. ..."

"...At the present point of time, the forces that can crush democracy, notwithstanding the constitutional and legal safeguards, are stronger. ..."

"... I don’t think anything has been done that gives me the assurance that civil liberties will not be suspended or destroyed again. Not at all. ..."

"...Of course, no one can do it easily... But that it cannot happen again — I will not say that. It could be that fundamental liberties are curtailed again. ..."

"... I do not see any sign in our polity that assures me, any outstanding aspect of leadership. A commitment to democracy and to all other aspects related to democracy is lacking. ..."

"...Today, I do not say that the political leadership is not mature. But kamiyon ke karan, vishwas nahin hota (I don’t have faith because of its weaknesses). I don’t have the confidence that it (Emergency) cannot happen again. ..."

"...It happened despite the constitutional safeguards that were in place. “There aren’t enough safeguards in India in 2015. ..."

" it happened in Germany, where Hitler’s rule appears to have inoculated the system against Hitlerian tendencies and because of which today’s Germany is more particular about democratic norms than even perhaps the British. ..."

" ...The aftermath of the Emergency having been an election in which the party that imposed the Emergency lost very badly, would always be a deterrent for future rulers who think of repeating what was done in the 1970s. ..."

"...Media is 'more independent today, but does it have a real commitment to democracy and civil liberties — I don’t know. It is something that must be put to the test. ... And civil society raised hopes, most recently during the Anna mobilisation against corruption, only to disappoint. ..."

" ...Of the various institutions that are to be held responsible for a well functioning democracy in India today, the judiciary is more responsible than the others. ..."

ybrao-a-donkey's humble views वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యక్తిగత అభిప్రాయాలు

It is not clear whether Mr. L.K. Advani meant that internal emergencies may again be imposed, if Congress again comes into power. Or did he mean to say that there is a possibiility of imposition of internal emergency, even during BJP's rule?

I have tried to gauge the reactions of netizens on Social Media sites. There seems to be a view among netizens that Mr. Advani's views need not be given much value, as he is speaking/writing with frustration, having been sidelined by the emergence of Mr. Narendra Modi as the supreme leader of Indian Nation.

I have tried to check up at the website of Shri Advani. Surprisingly, I found that there is not much about what he has personally said/written after the 2014 election. For those who wish to have a look at the website of Mr. L.K. Advani, here is the link: Click to go to . Last published blog on the site was of April 2014 (before General election). There seems to be some calculated silence /deliberate abstinence from writing and reticence.

The presented indication about possibility of an internal emergency as a part of interview with Indian Express, in connection with the 40th anniversary of the Congress imposed 1975 emergency, may either be a slip of tongue as opportunities of interviews become infrequent after a person loses power and is at the mercy of some other person, --- or an outpouring of suppressed feelings for about 13 months or so. (Explanation: After election of Mr. Narendra Modi as PM, and Mr. Ameet Shah as BJP President, Advani was rarely asked to speak on either Govt. platforms, or on party platforms. Media might have approached him very rarely for his interviews and to elicit his views, because he was no longer a person capable of rewarding, or punishing, or accelerating, or obstructing media. Media lives on advertising and paid news. Indian Express.Com may be an exception. )

Whatever Mr. L.K. Advani has recently said about internal emergency like conditions, his views are not direct, they are all veiled. Why? He may still have some last hopes on becoming a RASHTRAPATI. Or that, events may change to his favour.

Though an internal emergency has not been officially declared in 2015 India, some elements similar to 1975 emergency, have already crept in, whether they have been at the behest of the Government , or on volition of the leaders, bureaucrats, instituions, media, people themselves.

During our school days, essay contests used to be held in schools. One of the topics used to be: Is pen mightier or sword mightier? (Or) Pen is mightier than sword. Teachers expected that students would invariably write and try to prove that pen is mightier than sword. In one of such contests, I wrote that money is mightier both than pen and sword. The teacher who evaluated the essay papers called me next day, and counselled me. In spite of brainwashing by my teacher, my view didn't change. Even today I hold the view that money is mightier both than pen and sword.

I believe that it was Advani who said that in 1975 emergency, we kneeled, where it was just sufficient that we slightly bent. In 2015, we are again kneeling, unless we are 100% sure that nobody is seeing us. My readers who want to satisfy themselves on how far we are kneeling, can have look at Door Darsan, or listen to All India Radio. They will know that 1975 days are back again.

If we have to compare the craze for publicity of Late Mrs. Indira Gandhi, and Mr. Narendra Modi, whom we shall vote for? If we have to compare the authoritarian tendencies of Late Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Mr. Narendra Modi, whom shall we vote for?

Trigger for my today's this blog post. An article titled "Jai Jawan" -the Governor General's Files, by Shri S.K. Sinha, Former Vice Chief of Army Staff, former Governor of Assam and Kashmir. This article is worth reading, whether we agree with all that was written by Mr. Sinha in it. Link: Click to go to SK Sinha's article in Deccan Chronicle dated 1.7.2015.

The article is very informative about some of the events connected to apolitical and non-interfering role played by our army in the 1975 emergency period.

We should be grateful to Gen. T.N. Raina, the then Army Chief, for his impartiality and his independent outlook, and above all his unwillingness to intervene or interfere, into affairs of civil governance.

Earlier, in one of my blog posts, I wrote about the instigative speeches made by Messrs. Atal Bihari Vajpayee and L.K. Advani (about which a CD of their speeches in U.P. was in circulation as evidence) which have culminated in the destruction of Babri Masjid in 1992.

Mr. Vajpayee's role in 1942 Quit India Movement is also under shrouds, without adequate investigations.

Notwithstanding both the above, Mr. Vajpayee was conferred Bharat Ratna, and Mr. Advani was conferred Padma Vibhushan. Of course, when compared to many others, who received Bharata Ratnas and Padma Vibhushans, all these years, both Vajpayee and Advani may well deserve these awards. Yet, there is a need to have a detailed CBI investigation into their instigative role in the destruction of Babri Masjid and Vajpayee's role in Quit India Movement. I heard that a case is pending in UP courts filed by a former CPM MP about Mr. Vajpayee in Quit India Movement. That case is to be brought to a logical conclusion, and if Mr. Vajpayee comes out innocent, then he will become a purer gold emerging after facing fires of a goldsmith.

Here is a very important quote from Mr. S.K. Sinha's article.
"...I came across a well-written pamphlet titled “A tale of two democracies”. It discussed how Hitler, the elected Chancellor of the Weimar Republic of Germany, had subverted the Constitution and imposed Emergency. The German generals, being apolitical, did not interfere. Had they intervened, Hitler could be removed and the world saved the great holocaust of the Second World War. It compared Indira Gandhi’s Emergency to Hitler’s Emergency, implying that if Indian generals did not act, India may face a catastrophe. It was a virtual call for intervention by the Army. I immediately informed the government and ensured that no copy of this booklet was allowed to circulate amongst Army personnel. I discovered later that the author of this booklet was L.K. Advani, then in prison in Bangalore. ...."

Full text of Advani's "The Tale of two Democracies" pamphlet quoted by S.K. Sinha is not available for an in depth study. Prima facie, the sentence->
"...It compared Indira Gandhi’s Emergency to Hitler’s Emergency, implying that if Indian generals did not act, India may face a catastrophe. ..."

indicates that Advani wanted Indian General's to intervene, to stop Indira Gandhi's autocratic rule. Fortunately, they have not intervened or interfered.

Howsoever bleak and hopeless the emergency days were, if the pamphlet was genuine, it was very very foolish on the part of Mr. Advani to expect that Army should intervene. When placed in jail, he might have lost his mental balance TEMPORARILY.

I request my readers to study the article of Shri S.K. Sinha, in the Deccan Chronicle link provided above.

Mr. S.K. Sinha is a great, well-decorate former Army high-ranked Official. A donkey like me has no right to doubt his credential. Yet, my restless conscience tells me, that Mr. Sinha's article may not be a total self-less expression of opinion. This is because, he has not written anything, about what is happening in 2015 India.

537 Part 1 of: Can you write something about Pushkaram festival for Godavari River in South India? गोदावरी नदी के पुष्करों के बारे में आप कुछ लिख सकते हैं ? భాగం 1, గోదావరి పుష్కరాల గురించి మీరేమైనా వ్రాయగలరా ?

Part 1 of: Can you write something about Pushkaram festival for Godavari River in South India? गोदावरी नदी के पुष्करों के बारे में आप कुछ लिख सकते हैं ? భాగం 1, గోదావరి పుష్కరాల గురించి మీరేమైనా వ్రాయగలరా ?

In India Pushkarams are associated with religious beliefs and sentiments, hence we have to analyse issues very carefully, else somebody or other will claim that his religious emotions are hurt.

Pushkarams are River Festivals held every 12 years.

Why 12 rivers in India have pushkarams. Why not for all Rivers? Why Pushkara and Brahma (creator) did not like other rivers such as Mahanadi, Sarayu Nadi, Chambal River, Gomati River, Zhelum, Chenab, Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Rivers? Are they sinful? Why tAmraparNi in Tamil Nadu and prANahita in Telangana more sacred than Damodar, Bahuda Rivers?

Selected Rivers in India have pushkarams. Who selected them, and on what basis, nobody knows. There is some arbitrariness in selection of the Rivers.

These selected rivers need not be major very big rivers with great flows.

Ganges, Yamuna, Saraswati, Indus are North Indian Rivers. Saraswati is a mythological River said to be flowing underground underneathe Ganga, Yamuna, at the confluence of Trinity (trivENi Sangamam) at PrayAg (Allahabad).

Narmada and Tapati are West-Indian Rivers flowing into Arabian Sea.

Bhima, Tungabhadra, Pranahita, Krishna and Godavari are Deccan Rivers flowing among the four States of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh. Thus, Pushkaras have are more common and relevant for these four States.

Among the five Deccan Pushkara Rivers, Bhima, Tungabhadra are tributaries of River KrishnaVeNi. Pranahita is a tributary of Godavari.

The twelfth and the last River is Tamraparni. It flows through Tirunelveli and Tuticorn Districts of Tamil Nadu, into Bay of Bengal.

Question, प्रश्न, ప్రశ్న

Why should there be pushkarams only for Indian Rivers?

If we ask this question to Indian priests, they will say that foreigners are barbarious and they do not know the sacredness of rivers.

India is a hot country. Bathing is very important in India, from the point of view of physical hygiene. In ancient India, transport facilities were far and few.

Places used to be dry or wet intermittantly depending on monsoons. Consequently, wells (called kUpAs in Sanskrit) used to be the main source of water for bathing. Well water used to be hard, and saline, depending on the minerals dissolved in the soil. Only those people residing in villages located on the banks of Rivers had the opportunity of bathing in them. Others had to travel long distances through hard and tough terrrains by walk or bullock carts to have glimpses of rivers and bathing in them. In the context, pushkara River festivals gave people occasions and opportunities to bathe in sacred rivers. When people of those days bathed in Indian rivers, it gave them a feeling of refreshment and rejuvenation.

Since 19th Century many canals have been dug from Indian Rivers, and river waters have become available even in far off places. Barrages on Godavari and Krishna Rivers have made available long canals containing river waters.

With development of electricity, electric pumps, pipeline systems, river water has come to doorsteps of many households, even in small towns, not to speak of cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Surat, Rajahmundry, Patna, Vijayawada.

People of Cities having River Water Pumping Systems bathe in River water at their homes, everyday. It has become so common, that they have forgotten the sanctity of that. Having lost that consciousness and memory, for these people, there should be no additional sanctity of their going to River banks, bathe and wash there, and pollute them further.

Question, प्रश्न, ప్రశ్న

What will you say about the calculation differences about the commencement date of pushkarams?

Ans: Ancient Indian astronomers were very accurate in their measurements, though they were made without any sophisticated equipment. The depended more on their logical capabilities and mathematical acumen.

As I have already pointed out in my earlier blog posts, Indian astronomy and Indian astrology have many things in common with the western astronomy and astrology. For example, the West uses a zodiac of 12 constellations from Aries to Pisces. India also uses a zodiac (rASi cakram) of 12 constellations (rASis), with mEsham to mInam, with meanings of the constellations, also similar. For example pisces means fish. MInam also means fish. This is because of their having a common origin.

We have to keep in mind constellations in zodiac (రాశిచక్రంలో రాశులు) are imaginary areas/points along the path of Sun's journey (sun does not travel. Earth travels). Only difference between a National Highway or a Grand Trunk Railway, and the zodiac is: zodiac is circular. Indian Railways and Indian Roadways are not circular. For example, if we take Delhi to Chennai railway line as zodiac, Delhi as aries, Agra, Madhura, Jhansi, Gwalior, Bhopal, Itarsi, Nagpur, Wardha, Kajipet, Vijayawada, Gudur will be the other constellations such as Taurus, Jemini.

Thousands of years back, the starting points of Aries in the West, and the mEsham in India, and in the West were same. Owing to some celestial phenomenon, the starting point of Aries changed slightly every year, and the West changed it from time to time. Some Indian astrologers in India have not noted these changes and alter their starting point of aries. Consequently, the starting point of Indian astronomers/astrologers who didn't make the starting point of their aries, come up with their almanacs which have different calculations, variance being around 15 days. When Jawaharlal Nehru was our First Prime Minister, some scientific astronomers might have brought it to his notice, and he seems to have instructed the Ministries to adopt the Western modern calculations of ephemeral tables, using the data of NASA. These tables might have got reflected in Lahiri method. It will, therefore, be in the fitness of things, for all Indian astronomers to follow GOI calendar, and the ephemeral tables published by the Government of India.

Godavari River Pushkarams are celebrated when Jupiter (guru or brihaspati in Sanskrit) enters the constellation Leo (Simham).

We have seen above, that the point of commencement of Aries, and the other 11 constellations vrishabham, mithunam, karkatakam, simham, kanya, tula, vrischikam, dhanus, makaram, kumbham, minam, (these are all names of imaginary places/areas in sky on the illusary path of Sun's journey along the zodiac) are in variance with the world calculations. Not only Indian zodiac is imaginary, even the world zodiac is imaginary. రాశి చక్రము అనేదే ఒక భ్రమ, భ్రాంతి. సూర్యుడి చుట్టూ తిరుగుతున్నది భూమి. సూర్యుడు, గ్రహాలు ఏవో రాశులలో ప్రవేశిస్తున్నాయి అనుకోటం ఒక భ్రమ.

Planets are in Solar System, nearer to us in comparison to stars. Constellations are star heaps, hundreds of light years distance away from us. There is no question of Jupiter entering Leo, or leaving Leo. They are all illusions.

Pushkaralu were apparently used by Indian Priests to make some supplementary income every 12 years. Hence, stories seems to have been woven around them.

In 21st Century India, Government Contractors are using pushkarams to make millions of quick bucks, as pushkara public works are taken up and completed in a hurry, and nobody inspect their quantity, quality properly. Else, how can they live?

Remaining portion, I shall write in Part 2.

గతంలో ప్రెస్ కౌన్సిల్ సూచించినట్లుగా పత్రికలు, టీవీ ఛానెళ్ళు వార్తలను యథాతథంగా ప్రచురించి, ఆ వార్తలపై తమ వ్యాఖ్యలను విడిగా బాక్స్ కట్టి ప్రచురించటమో, ఒక అడ్డగీత గీసిన తరువాత విడిగా ఇంకో రంగు సిరాతో లేక ఇటాలిక్స్ లో లేక చిన్న ఫాంట్ లేక భిన్నమైన ఫాంట్ లో ప్రచురిస్తే , ప్రజలకు వాస్తవాలు ఏవో, పత్రికాధిపతుల స్వంత అభిప్రాయాలు ఏవో స్పష్టంగా అర్ధం అయ్యేది. హైదరాబాద్ నుండి వచ్చే రెండు అగ్ర దినపత్రికలు అక్కడ స్థిర పడ్డ ఆంధ్ర యజమానుల చేతిలో ఉండటంతో వారు తమ కార్యాలయాలను, ఇతర వ్యాపారాలను, ఆస్తులను, కెసీ ఆర్ చేత రెచ్చగొట్ట బడ్డ గుంపులనుండి రక్షించుకోటానికి, తాము నిష్పక్షపాతంగా ఉన్నట్లుగా నిరూపించుకోటానికి , ఆ రెండు పత్రికలో తమ పల్లకిలో ఒక పక్క కెసీఆర్ ను, ఇంకో పక్క కోదండరాం నూ కూర్చో పెట్టుకుని, పెళ్ళికొడుకునూ, పెళ్ళికూతురునూ, పల్లకీలో కూర్చోపెట్టి ఊరేగించినట్లుగా, తాము బోయీలుగా మారి మోసాయి. పత్రికలు ఉచితంగా మోస్తామంటే వారెందుకు కాదంటారు ?

కెసీఆర్ & కో, కోదండ రాంలు, గద్దర్, కేశవరావు మొ|| నేతలు తెలంగాణ ప్రజలను వివిధ పధ్ధతులలో రెచ్చకొడుతున్నప్పుడు, వారు చేస్తున్నది తప్పని ఆరెండు పత్రికలు ఎందుకు వారికి చెప్పలేకపోయాయి. వాళ్ళ మెహర్బానీల కోసం తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమంలో జరిగిన అక్రమాలను, తప్పుడు వ్యాఖ్యలను, దాడులను, హింసలను అన్నిటినీ యథాతథంగా రిపోర్టు చేసి, తమ అభిప్రాయమేదో విడిగా ప్రత్యేక కాలంలలో లేక ప్రత్యేక పేజీలలో, పత్రికలు తెలంగాణ ప్రజలకు తెలియ చెప్పకుండా, కెసీఆర్ తమని ఆలింగనం చేసుకోగానే ముఖాన్ని చేటంత చేసుకోటం, కెసీఆర్ చెప్పేవాటిని ప్రజలు నమ్మేలాగా చేయటంలో తాము కూడ భాగస్వాములు కావటం, నాటి పత్రికల స్వార్ధ పూరిత వైఖరికి నిదర్శనం. తమ వ్యాపార ప్రయోజనాలు పత్రికాధిపతులు చూసుకుంటే, తమ అధికార ప్రయోజనాలు తెలంగాణ రాజకీయ నేతలు చూసుకున్నారు. అయితే ఈ విషయంలో నేను వారిని తప్పు పట్ట తలుచుకోలేదు. తమ మనుగడ కోసం వారీ పని చేయటం అనివార్యం.

ఫలితంగా నష్టపోయింది ఎవరంటే, సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజలు. హైదరాబాదులో ఉమ్మడి ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్ ప్రభుత్వాలు, కేంద్ర ప్రభుత్వం, పెట్టిన పెట్టుబడులను అన్నిటినీ తెలంగాణ నేతలు తమ హస్తగతం చేసుకోటానికి ఆరెండు పత్రికలు తోడ్పడినట్లయింది. దుర్యోధనుడికి కర్ణుడు చూపిన స్వామి భక్తినే ఆరెండు పత్రికలూ చూపాయి, చూపిస్తున్నాయి, ఇంక ముందు కూడ చూపించబోతున్నాయి. కెసీఆర్ అనుగ్రహం కోసం ఆ పత్రికాధిపతులు పరితపించి పోతున్నారు. ఈసందర్భంగా పరస్పర కుచమర్దనాలు జరిగాయి కానీ, అప్పుడప్పుడైనా జరగాల్సిన సంభోగాలే జరగటం లేదు. అవి జరిగితే కొంత కాలమైనా వారికి సంభోగానంతర సుఖ సంతోషాలు లభిస్తాయి. అదే జరగటం లేదు.

పెట్టుబడిదారీ విధానంలో, తమకు ఏది లాభసాటిగా కనిపించి, ఏది తమ ఆస్తుల విధ్వంసానికి దారితీయదో దానిని పెట్టుబడిదారులు చేయటం అది ఒక పెట్టుబడిదారీ మీడియా వికారం. పెట్టుబడిదారీ విధానాన్ని నిర్మూలించినప్పుడు పెట్టుబడిదారీ పత్రికలను తీసివేయటం జరిగేదాకా మనకి పెట్టుబడిదారీ పత్రికల బెడద తప్పదు.

తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమానికి వ్యతిరేకంగా నాటి పత్రికలు , టీవీలు ప్రచారం చేసి ఉండాలని నేను వ్రాయటం లేదు. తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమాన్ని సమర్ధిస్తూ, విడిగా ప్రత్యేక వ్యాసాలు | సంపాదకీయాల్లో సక్రమ మార్గంలో తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమం నడవటానికి పత్రికలు, టీవీలు తగిన సలహాలు ఇచ్చి ఉంటే, రాష్ట్ర విభజన మెరుగైన పధ్ధతులలో జరిగి ఉండేది. అపుడు సెక్షన్ 8 యొక్క అవసరమే ఉండేది కాదు. హైదరాబాదులోని సంస్థల విభజనపై ఇంత ఘోరమైన కుమ్ములాటలు జరిగేవి కావు. ఆ రెండు పత్రికలు, పనిగట్టుకొని కెసీఆర్ ను అతిగా సమర్ధించినందు వల్ల, తెలంగాణ కాంగ్రెస్ నేతలు, తెలంగాణ టీడీపీ నేతలు, బీజేపీ నేతలు, తాము అసమర్ధులైన మితవాదులులాగా, వాజమ్మలలాగా కనపడకూడదనుకొని, వారు కెసీఆర్ తో సమానంగా సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజలను తిట్టటం ద్వారా తాము తెలంగాణ ప్రజల మెప్పును కెసీఆర్ కన్నా అధికంగా పొందవచ్చనుకుని అందరూ వోవర్ యాక్షన్ లోకి దిగారు.

ఫలితంగా కేంద్రంలోని అఖిల భారత నేతలకు కూడ దిక్కుతోచని పరిస్థితులు ఏర్పడ్డాయి. వారు కూడ అత్యుత్సాహం చూపించి, తమ రాజకీయ స్వార్ధాలకు అనుగుణంగా, లోక్ సభలో దౌర్జన్యకర పధ్ధతుల ద్వారా విభజన బిల్లుకి ఆమోదం పొందారు. రాజ్యసభలో తప్పుడు హామీలను గుప్పించారు. దురదృష్ట వశాత్తు సీమాంధ్ర నేతల అనైక్యత వల్ల, సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజలు అత్యధికంగా నష్టపోయారు.

ఆరెండు తెలుగు పత్రికల మెయిన్ పేజీలు, ఇతర ముఖ్య తెలుగు, ఇంగ్లీషు అన్ని పత్రికల మెయిన్ పేజీలు, హైదరాబాదులో కంపోజ్ అవుతూ ఉండటంతో, సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజల తరఫున వాదించే మీడియానే లేకపోయింది. 1966 కు ముందు ఉన్నట్లుగా , తెలుగు దిన పత్రికల ప్రధాన కార్యాలయాలు, మెయిన్ పేజీలు విజయవాడలో కంపోజ్ అయి ఉంటే, తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమాన్ని వీపున పెట్టుకుని మోసేవాళ్ళా. పత్రికలు, ప్రధాన కార్యాలయాలు హైదరాబాదుకు తరలి వెళ్ళటం, టీవీ ఛానెళ్ళన్నీ హైదరాబాద్ లోనే ప్రారంభం అయ్యి అక్కడే కేంద్రీకృతమై ఉండటం, వాళ్ళ ఆస్తులు, పెట్టుబడులు అన్నీ హైదరాబాదులో ఉండటం, ఇవి అన్నీ సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజల దౌర్భాగ్యానికి కారణం.

అదే సంపాదకీయం, తరువాత లైన్లలో.

తాము తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమాన్ని కెసీఆర్ ను, కోదండ రామ్ ను, గద్దర్ ను వీపు మీద పెట్టుకుని మోస్తున్నప్పడు, తాము తెలంగాణ ప్రాంత ప్రజల ప్రయోజనాలకు అనుకూలంగానూ, సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజల ప్రయోజనాలకు విరుధ్ధంగా వ్యవహరిస్తున్నట్లు ఈ పత్రికలు, ఛానెళ్ళు ఎందుకు గ్రహించలేదు ?

తెలంగాణ ఉద్యమం యొక్క మూలాలు హైదరాబాదులో ఖాళీ స్థలాలకోసం, విలువైన రియల్ ఎస్టేట్ ఆస్తులకొరకు, తెలంగాణ పెట్టుబడిదారులకు, సీమాంధ్ర పెట్టుబడిదారులకు, ఇతరరాష్ట్రాల పెట్టుబడిదారులకు, ప్రవాస ఎన్ ఆర్ అయి పీఐఓ పెట్టుబడిదారులకు, మరియు విదేశీ పెట్టుబడిదారులకు జరిగిన కుమ్ములాట అని పత్రికలు, మీడియాకు తెలిసి కూడ, తెలంగాణ ప్రజలకు, సీమాంధ్ర ప్రజలకు, సత్యాన్ని ఎందుకు చెప్పలేదు ? ఎందుకంటే, తాము కూడ తిలా పాపం తలా పిడికెడు అన్నట్లుగా ఆ పాప ఫలాలను తింటున్నారు కనుక.

ఇలాంటి పరిస్థితులు కేవలం హైదరాబాదులోనే కాదు దేశంలో పెద్దనగరాలన్నిటిలో రాబోతున్నాయి. నగరాలకు అతిప్రధాన్యం ఇచ్చి, స్మార్ట్ సిటీలు, మెగా సిటీలు మొ|| పేర్లు పెట్టి వాటిని అతిగా అభివృధ్ధి చేస్తున్నంత కాలం నిరుద్యోగులు అక్కడికి వలసపోక తప్పదు. వారు ఏదో ఒక బ్రతుకు తెరువును సంపాదించుకున్నాక చిన్న చిన్న ఇళ్ళను , అపార్టుమెంట్లను కొనటానికి ప్రయత్నించక తప్పదు. ఇది ఒక మానవ హక్కు. దీనిని శివసేన వాళ్ళు కానీ, తెలంగాణ వాళ్ళు గానీ , ఇంకోళ్ళు గానీ, ఇంకోళ్ళుగానీ ఆపటానికి ప్రయత్నిస్తే దేశ విభజనకే దారితీసే పరిస్థితులు ఏర్పడతాయి.

మేము నగరాలను అభివృధ్ధి చేయటం మానం, గ్రామాలను, చిన్న పట్టణాలను పాడు పెట్టటం మానం, అని బూర్జువా పార్టీలు అనుకుంటే, కేంద్ర పాలకులైన బూర్జువా పార్టీలు 20 లక్షలు దాటిన ప్రతి నగరాన్నీ కేంద్ర పాలిత ప్రాంతంగా ప్రకటించటమే, వెర్రితలలు వేస్తున్న ప్రాంతీయవాదానికి విరుగుడు.

536 News Round up खबरों के दौर వార్తా సంచారం

Question प्रश्न ప్రశ్న 1. Is Mr. KCR is greater than Lord Srikrishna? क्या कॆसीआर साहॆब भगवान श्री कृष्ण से अधिक है। కె సీ ఆర్ ప్రభువు శ్రీకృష్ణ పరమాత్ముడి కన్నా అధికుడా?

Appears to be. In post No. 535 , I have quoted 15th Century Telugu poet, MahabhAgavata's author Bammera PotanAmAtya's verse, which described the worries of Kuchela, about the possibility of his not getting admitted into the court of Lord Krishna. I shall repeat the verse:
ద్వారకానగరంబు నేరీతి జొత్తును భాసు రాంతఃపురవాసి యైన య ప్పుండరీకాక్షు నఖిలేశు నెబ్భంగి దర్శింపగలను దద్ద్వారపాలుకేమైన బరిదాన మిచ్చి చొచ్చెద నన్న నూహింప నర్థశూన్యుండ నేను.

Latin Script: dvArakA nagarambun E rIti cottunu bhAsurAntahpura vAsi aina
appunDarIkAkshun akhilESun ebhbhangi darSimpa galanu
tat dvArapAlu kEmaina paridAna micci
coccedan annan Uhimpan ardha SUnyunDan nEnu.

English Gist: How shall enter the City of Dwaraka? How can I see that punDarikAksha and the ruler of this Universe, who resides in his glorious gynaesium? To consider the idea of giving some bribe/gift to the gate-keepers and pass through the gates, I am a person who does not have money!

The plight of the 21st Century kucEla is worse than the Potana's kucEla. She is a widowed young woman from Jagatyal Mandal, Karimnagar District, Telangana State. Karimnagar District is the original native District of the 21st Century Telangana Sultan K. Chandrasekhara Rao. Jagatial is not a place unknown to Mr. K. Chandrasekhara Rao.

First, I must express my sincere gratitude to the TV channel (name of the Channel, I have forgotten by my negligence), which has shown the footage of the miserable plight of this widowed woman, with her daughters. (In a similar condition, a woman with two children in Bapatla, cut herself into pieces by keeping her head under a moving train! Residual A.P. Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu has not time to foresee such contingencies because he is busy selling liquor in Tetra packs through Malls!).

(In his last birth (before becoming a politician), Mr. Chandrasekhara Rao is reported to have worked as an agent for sending laborers to Gulf countries, and even said to have cheated some people. This aspect was for their own convenience ignored by Late Shri N.T. Rama Rao, and Shri Chandra Babu Naidu, and Shri KCR was encouraged with good posts from time to time, including a Cabinet slot. I believe that this aspect was pointed out by Mr. Motkupalli Narasimhulu, T-TDP leader. Had this case been entrusted to CBI long back, people of Telangana might have been saved of the travails of being instigated by a loose-mouthed leader.)

Now what is the problem of our 21st Century kucEla, this recently widowed lady? Her husband was a laborer who went to Saudi Arabia for livelihood few months back. Within one month of his joining in the new job, before drawing his first salary, he died in a road accident in Saudi Arabia. His corpse is lying in a mortuary in Saudi Arabia. His dead body is to be brought back to India for his last rites. At home, he has left a debt of Rs. 200,000/-, and two young children, who do not know what has befallen to their dad. His woman is also, owing to her misery, sobbing, having lost her beloved husband.

She has been running from pillar to post begging every employee and politician in Telangana State Government , to come to her rescue by arranging to get the mortal remains of her husband from Saudi Arabia to India. But nobody was even listening. Probably every Government employee and politician in Telangana is busy driving out the Andhra People from Hyderabad, that they have no time to listen to the hardships of a suffering woman.


Mr. K. Chandrasekhara Rao, out of last 29 days period, is reported to have attended the Secretariat only for four days. Remaining 25 days what was he doing? He is, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, reported to be taking rest in his Farm House in the outskirts of the City, taking care of his nearly 60 acre GINGER GARDEN. The TV Channel has shown a video of Mr. Rao relaxing in his ginger field. The Channel has also reported that mediamen have been kept at a distance of two kilometers from his farmhouse. Why Mr. KCR is afraid of Media persons approaching near his farmhouse?


If media persons are stopped 2 kms. from CM's farmhouse, where the common people will be stopped? 10 kilometers distance? Obviously, this widowed woman, carrying her two children on her shoulders, from Jagatiyal might have tried to meet Mr. KCR at his Secretariat Chamber. Since he went there only for 4 days out of 29 days, she might have tried to meet him at his farmhouse. I do not know whether she had tried and whether she was driven away by guards! This 21st Century Kuchela woman too does not have money to bribe the gatekeepers.

Fortunately, some wellwisher might have guided her to the Office of the Human Rights Commission, She might have submitted her representation there. Let us see what will happen.


This widowed woman's case, according to the TV channel is not a stray or a sole instance of sufferings of the Telangana people. There are at least 15 dead bodies of Telangana workers lying in the mortuaries of Gulf countries. The bodies were said to be lying there for the last one and half years! Now, can we gauge the agony of the relatives of the dead laborers!

The apathy of Indian Embassies in Gulf countries towards movement of India dead bodies from Gulf to India (said to be around 7,000 in number) is understandable. Indian Embassies in these countries seem to be suffering from shortages. Besides, their priorities might have changed under the new dispensation of the NDA Government.

The same TV channel has highlighted the plight of the child laborers, women laborers, migrant laborers from Orissa, working as bonded laborers in brick kilns of Telangana.
Question प्रश्न ప్రశ్న Should the employees and laborers of Telangana work for 365 days of the year?

Answer जवाब జవాబు Apparently. Reason: Telangana Government has issued a notification that Shops and Establishments in Telangana can work for 365 days in a year! There will be no need of weekly holidays! This notification is said to have been issued on a representation from some Mall Owners Association. Did the Telangana Government consult the Labor Unions before issuing the Notification? Our 21st Century Nizam will not consult anybody. Then what the Communist leaders of Telangana doing? Did they condemn the action of the Telangana Government, at least when they saw the news of the notification in newspapers? CPI leader, Mr. Narayana, may be busy, munching chicken.

Why the family of Mr. K. Chandrasekhara Rao (+Harish Rao, KTR, Kavita) does not have any time to look into the problems of the poor and the laborers?

Answer जवाब జవాబు Answer for this, only the ginger plants and the walls of KCR's farmhouse know!

535 How to buy a share of Rs. 10, for Rs. 96,010? १० रू. के षेर को ९६०१० रू. को खरीदने के उपाय పది రూపాయల షేర్ ను రూ.96010 కొనటం ఎలా

Question: How to buy a share of Rs. 10 , cheaply for Rs. 96,010/-?
Ans: I do not know. We have to ask Ms. Vasundahra Raje, CM of Rajasthan.

World language English in Roman script: प्रपंच भाषा अंग्रेजी, रोमन स्क्रिप्ट में। ప్రపంచ భాష ఇంగ్లీషు రోమన్ స్క్రిప్టులో.

People of erstwhile United Andhra Pradesh, and globally Telugu speaking people should not think that their own leaders alone are intelligent, and leaders of other States and other countries of the world are muffs.

This impression they may have, from the recent memories of former Chief Minister of United A.P., late Shri Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy mobilising nearly a trillion Rupees through quid pro quo methods. The modus operandi of this great technique was asking those people seeking Andhra Pradesh State Government lands and permissions, to purchase shares in Companies of kith and kin, paying sky-high premia. This great corruption scam is sub-judice, and the son of Late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy is on bail. His son is at present the Opposition leader of the Residual Andhra Pradesh. Telugu people wanted to prove what Justice Markandeya Katju said, when he classified 90% of Indians are fools. Otherwise, how could they elect Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, Mr. Y.s. Jaganmohan Reddy, Mr. K. Chandrasekhara Rao as their leaders?

There is no need for Telugu speaking people of the Unsplit Andhra Pradesh and the global Telugu speakers to undergo disquietitude that the leaders of their own State are corrupt and the leaders of other countries, and leaders of other states in India are crystal clean.

According to recent disclosures made by Mr. Lalit Modi, as per the reports appearing in media, he has invested Rs. 110 million in a Company, in Niyant Heritage Hotels, owned by Mr. Dushyant Singh, a B.J.P. M.P., and son of Ms. Vasundhara Raje, Chief Minister of Rajasthan.

Rs. 10 share, at a premium of Rs. 96,000! Mr. Lalit Modi is reported to have bought each share of Rs. 10, at a premium of Rs. 96,000/-.

Could we ever make this type of great gift to our mother? మనం మన తల్లి దండ్రులకు ఇలాటి బహుమతులను ఎప్పుడైనా ఇవ్వగలిగామా, లేక భవిష్యత్ లో ఇవ్వ గలమా.

Mr. Dushyant Singh and his wife is said to have gifted 1640 shares each (total 3280 shares) to his mother (i.e. Ms. Vasundhara Raje, the CM of Rajasthan). What will be the value of these gifted shares at the above premium of Rs. 96,000/- per share? 96,000 x 3280 = Rs. 314.88 million , or Rs. 31,48,80,000/-.

We already know the concessions made by the former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, and Mr. Veerbhadra Singh, the former CM of Himachal Pradesh, to Mr. Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Ms. Sonia Gandhi. We can also recall the hardships of the honest I.A.S. Officer, Mr. Ashok Khemka, who brought out some of these shady deals, and the fate of his being dumped to a State of Caretaker of Museums in Hariyana.

There are 29 States in India. There are 29 Chief Ministers. Our Prime Ministers, Chief Minister, and Ministers are not novices, who do not know quid pro quo techniques. Even if they are novices, they do not lack in learning skills.

What will be the aggregate amounts of hidden quid pro quo in purchase of weapons, aircraft, crude oil, edible oils at All India level? What will be the total quantum of quid pro quo 's undertaken by all the 29 Chief Ministers of India with infinite number of Lalit Modis? I can't calculate. We need a Super Computer, with thousands of data-processors.

Now, how many Lalit Modis are there within India and outside India? None of them have been made fugitives. This fate has befallen, why only to Lalit Modi? Should we say that it is a quirk of fate? Definitely not!

These are only the vagaries of Capitalism. Just as the vagaries of monsoons and earthquakes cannot really be predicted with mathematical exactitude, we cannot predict the vagaries of behaviors of business rivalries and conspiracies, retributions, which become more pronounced when accompanied by political intrigues.

Question: Won't these problems exist in Communism/Marxism/Total Socialism, which you are trying to spread?

Ans. as per the perception of ybrao a donkey: These problems may not arise within India. Reason: There will be no Companies and there will be no shares. However, Indian bureaucrats and politicians storing their corrupt moneys in secret accounts abroad will continue. But that money, they will not be able to use in India, because in India, Marxism will definitely remove money, currency and their purchasing powers. There will be nothing which money can buy in a truly Socialist India.

However, Indian bureaucrats and politicians can frequently visit abroad, and enjoy the power of spending their ill-gotten money stashed abroad. (Example of this lavish Indian spending abroad, you can see in our blog post No. Click to go post No.507).

We can solve this problem by going for World Total Socialism, True-World Marxism, True-World-Communism (Not the China brand). For global problems, we need global solutions, probably. For this reason only, Workers of All countries have to unite, some day or other! Right now, it is an empty slogan, because the world is floating on a wave of reckless Capitalism.

Today's Telugu poetry
Everybody knows that it will be necessary to lobby and bribe, even for Heads of States of countries to get an invite from White House, to meet the U.S. President. It is an American Custom. I do not have evidence, but I believe that in India also to meet President, PM, important Central Ministers, Congress President, some lobbying and probably some bribing may become necessary.

I do not wish to say wish to say that everybody who gets an appointment to meet Indian Prez/PM/Home Minister/Congress Prez goes through lobbies and bribing, but, definitely, seeing them other than in election rallies appears to be more difficult than having a darSan of Lord Venkateswara, Tirumala.

Example: Pl. see my blog post No. 491 Click to go to 491, where you can see the news about film actor Mr. Mohan Babu going to invite India's PM to invite him for son's marriage, and Mr. Mohan Babu's daughter managing a selfie with PM.

It also seems to be a historical Indian custom: Gate keepers had to be bribed to enter kings' courts and sultans' darbars. Of course, there were exceptions. Here is one verse which shows the perturbation in the mind of an agitated visitor to a city. Identify the city, visitor, and the king.
"...నెబ్భంగి దర్శింపఁగలను తద్ద్వారపాలు రెక్కడి విప్రుండ విం దేలవచ్చెద వని యడ్డపెట్టిరే నపుడు వారి కేమైనఁ పరిదానఁ మిచ్చి చొచ్చెద నన్న నూహింప నర్థశూన్యుండ నేను ..."

"Above quote in Latin Script:...Ebbhangi darSimpagalanu tat dvArapAlu
rekkaDi viprunDav indEla vaccedav ani aDDa peTTirEni apuDu vAri
kEmaina paridAnam icci cocceda nannan Uhimpan ardha SUnyunDa nEnu...."

English Gist: "...How can I see (him)? If those gate-keepers ask me wherefrom have I come, and why did I come, and stop me, then, what gift can I give them and enter in? To anticipate this (and overcome the problem), I am a person without money. ..."

534 Central Government and the Judiciary should have their own FULL-FLEDGED Police Departments. केंद्र सरकार और न्याय पालिका को अलग स्वतंत्र पुलीस व्यवस्था होना चाहिए। కేంద్ర ప్రభుత్వానికీ, న్యాయ స్థానాలకు, ప్రత్యేక పోలీసు వ్యవస్థ అవసరం.

World language English in Roman script: प्रपंच भाषा अंग्रेजी, रोमन स्क्रिप्ट में। ప్రపంచ భాష ఇంగ్లీషు రోమన్ స్క్రిప్టులో.

While the Central Government takes onto its head, goals, objects and tasks which are not necessary as an apex Administrative Organisation, it skips the essentials without accepting authority and responsibility, in case of its essential duties, on the ground that those duties fall under "States' subjects" of the Constitution, and that it should be the duty of the States to discharge their duties as enshrined in our Constitution.

We shall take up one example of Centre taking up non-essential items: The recent jamborees and hullabaloos that have taken place in the name of Yoga, and the International Yoga Day.

UNO has obliged to India's request to declare an International Yoga Day, because UNO was starving for funds, and it expected India to come to its rescue. A demand for raising India's subscription to UNO might have already been put up by UNO to India, or in the near future, they will put up. Besides, billions of Rupees have been spent by India for organising the half-hour or one hour yoga-show at every place where the GOI could exercise its influence. This is apart from the Chartered flights, expenses on fuel and vehicles for movement of VIP convoys, carpets and tarpaulins, etc.

Now, we shall take up one example of Central Govt. (and probably the Judiciary) neglecting their essential functions.

There is a need to check the dictatorial tendencies of KCR & Co dynasty with his nephew, son in the Cabinet, and his daughter an MP (said to be keen on joining Central Cabinet). Telangana Congress and BJP MLAs, MLCs, and MPs have to do it, but they are afraid of the abusive words of KCR & Co. If T Congress and BJP try to point out any errors of his, KCR & Co. will immediately launch attacks of abuse against T leaders.

KCR is instigating people of Telangana against the leaders of their own Region, as if they were enemies of Telangana. KCR&Co's main strength is their instigating skills. This animosity of T people against people of Residual A.P. is more pronounced and prominent in Warangal , Medak, Karimnagar, NIzamabad, Adilabad Districts, as they do not have any border with RAP. People of Mahaboobnagar, Nalgonda, Khammam Districts have blood and marital relations with people in Residual A.P. Enemity is being created by the A-K-N-W-M District people and, sadly, the people of Mahaboobnagar, Nalgonda, and Khammam are being misled.

Central Government: CBI, is today, not a full-fledged organisation. It does not have a proper law for its own constitution and functioning, except some ad hoc instructions. Suppose, if States refuse to implement the instructions of the Central Government, the Union Home Ministry has to break its own head, with no help forthcoming from their political bosses, unless the bosses themselves considered that they were under threat.

The weakness of the Central Government to enforce Rule of Law, should not be swept under-to the Carpet of the freedom of States and Federalism. Federalism will work, only if States function as per law, and without MALICE, political or otherwise. Fortunately, so far, States have not made major revolts. This may be for various reasons, such as earlier the Coalitions at Centre were dependent on the support from the Regional Sardars, and that was forthcoming amply provided they were allowed to rule their Sultanates with all dictatorial powers.

Only anti-incumbancy upheavals during the five year elections were changing the position. Example: In Tamil Nadu, whether Karuna Nidhi's DMK or Jayalalitaa's AIDMK rule their Sultanates in turns. Because Tamil Nadu was on the Southern-most tip of India, there were not major problems creating a situation for GOI to intervene. Though there were River water disputes between Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, which used to reach their 'critical stages', Tamil Nadu was a downstream State for waters, and it could not do anything if Karnataka or Kerala refused to release water. Some directions of High Courts and Supreme Court about release of water to Tamil Nadu could not be enforced against Karnataka or Kerala.

Same is the case with West Bengal. Central Government may land itself into situations where it has no Central Apparatus, to enforce its own orders or the orders of the Supreme Court, on the West Bengal Government.

Of course, we have a problem of the Ruling Party in Centre using its clout against Opposition Parties' ruled States, and create problems for the opposition ruled States. Eg. Problems created for Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi through Delhi's Lieutenant Governor.

To adjudicate inter-State disputes, and the disputes between the Centre-and-the-States, Judiciary should be sufficiently empowered, not only to send notices, hear to arguments, issue decrees, but also to enforce the court orders, against all the parties. In other words, Judiciary should also have its own Police to enforce its decrees, at all levels i.e. Supreme Court, High Court, Trial Courts.

KCR SHOULD BE HAPPY TO GET RELIEVED OF THE BURDEN OF LAW & ORDER IN HYDERABAD, instead why he is unhappy? He seems to be unhappy because he may to explain to Governor, every action of the TRS Government and seek Guv's. consent. Then, there is a danger of his evil intents coming out.
What I write here is not to be construed as a defence of the nefarious actions of Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu and his TDP Ministers.

KCR & Co. has threatened that KCR will undertake a fast in Delhi, to resist implemention of Sec. 8, Andhra Pradesh Bifurcation Act. Why? Doesn't he have any confidence on Governor? Is he afraid that, if he is indulging in corruption, illegal or unlawful activities, Governor will apply brakes to such corrupt, illegal, unlawful activities of TRS? Everybody knows that all is not well in allotment of lands to industrialists in Telangana. Mr. KTR is also accused of participating in land settlements. Telangana ACB has never bothered to look into them. Why singularly take up only one case of Cash for Vote Scam? Besides, there are accusations that Mr. Stephenson paid Rs. 12 million to get nominated as MLC. It is also said that KCR received Rs. 80 lacs, and the TRS intermediaries Rs. 40 lacs. It is alleged that Mr. Stephenson had to incur debts for paying this bribe, and that he initially tried to reimburse himself of his expenses, by selling his vote. It is said that the Gunman of Mr. Stephenson, brought it to the notice of the Telangana Government, when its ACB was said to have moved to bring him as a Prosecution Witness in the Cash for Vote Scam.

Suppose, let us visualise a situation, where Stephenson could get his MLC nomination without spending a single Rupee, probably he might not have fixed such a high price of Rs. 50 million and started with an advance of Rs. 5 million. He might have, at the most asked for Rs. 500,000/-.

MLAs, MLCs and MPs trying to get back their election expenditure through selling their votes for Councils, Rajya Sabha, etc. and if the amount so mobilised was inadequate, they also work as power-brokers to get things done in Government , on behalf of Corporate businesses and industries.

Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu might have committed some criminal offense in the Cash for Vote Scam. But then, there are enough reasons to suspect that TRS Government has also done some dirty work, in inviting Mr. Talasani Srinivasa Yadav, Mr. Tummala Nageswara Rao, Mr. Kadiyam Srihari into Cabinet. Whether there was a quid-pro-quo or not, Telangana ACB ought to have investigated, but it has not done it. Mr. KCR and his Government may be clean in inviting them and giving them Cabinet Posts. But KCR & Co. cannot be judges to decide on their own offenses. That investigation, and establishing the innocence of KCR & Co. is to be done either by a Central Govt. Agency or a Judicial Agency. If Mr. KCR is clean, he should have asked for a CBI investigation covering all the conversions (political) that have taken place in Telangana.

Truth or falsehood of all these allegations can be ascertained only if Central Government or Judiciary order an independent investigation. If necessary, Lie Detector Tests may have to be conducted on KCR (includes his dynasty proxies KTR, Harish Rao and Kavita), Chandra Babu Naidu (including his dynasty proxies Lokesh, Balakrishna), Stephenson, Mattaiah, Revanth Reddy, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Tummala Nageswara Rao, Kadiyam Srihari, Governor himself (for blindly appointing Stephenson as nominated MLC), concerned bureaucrats in the Telangana Government who recommended Stephenson's name.

Desirability or otherwise of enforcement of Sec. 8 of the Andhra Pradesh Bifurcation Act 2014, is only a tip of the ice-berg. This Section 8 had a limited geographical purpose of ensuring that there is impartiality of Police, in HYDERABAD CITY ONLY. Then, it has a time limit of just ten years, i.e. till such a time the Residual Andhra Pradesh shifts it Capital to some place in RAP. These two limitations should have made KCR & Company very happy, because it relieves them of their burden of administration of Law & Order in Hyderabad, at least for ten years, so that they can concentrate on development of Hyderabad and Telangana. KCR & Co. should have requested for creation and deployment of Central Government Police, and take over the expenditure and responsibility of Law and Order in Hyderabad.

At present, State Police Stations and State Police Officials have a monopoly on all cases and crimes in the State. Unless a bribe is paid nothing really moves. If Police drag on in registering FIRs, the hapless victims have no place to go. Though, theoretically, victims can file a private case in Magistrate Courts seeking a direction to the Police, and sometimes it works, very often it does not work, because people have to pay push-money, chase-money everywhere.

There should be somebody in competition with the State Police to take up the FIRs. If there is a Central Police, and if there are Central Police Stations everywhere, aggrieved persons can lodge their FIRs with either of the two or even with both. This is not waste of resources. Monopolies never really help, whether in the arena of markets or in the area of Policing.

If there are going to be disputes between the State Police and Central Police, Judiciary can adjudicate and pass appropriate orders against both, in such a way that justice is done to the victims.

This is not going to lead to waste of resources, or multiple agencies. India is a highly populated country. There are also no signs of its being actively controlled. Establishing additional Police Organisations will only bridge the continuously neglected shortfalls.

It is said that Union Water Minister Ms. Uma Bharati has promised to deploy Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) to enforce law and order in the administration of gates of Irrigation Projects. She should have done it long back. Let us hope that it will not be an empty promise. If there is a Central Police, and Central Police Stations which specialise in examining law and administering law (not just using fire-arms and lathis), we can expect them to act lawfully.


1. Need for Constitutional Amendment to make Law & Order a Concurrent Subject.

2. Need to establish full-fledged Central Police, Central Police Stations to compete with State Police Stations.

3. Authority to Central Police Stations to accept FIRS, investigate, file charge sheets, prosecute, a la the State Police.

4. Additional Police to Judiciary, to enforce Judicial Orders and Decrees.

ybrao-a-donkey's humble view वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య

Originally, Jainism was supposed to be a lifestyle (I do not call Indian Sects as religions. They are not religions, in the style of the alien religions of West Asia and Europe, which, today, are dominating the world with their wealth, tactics of expansion and proseylitization. Hindu Sects which worship different Gods and God persons are just lifestyles. They are not organised religions having the beliefs, practices, rigid hierarchial authority structures). Jainism used to be a philosophy of complete renunciation from the worldly affairs, adopting an ascetic lifestyles, whether they continued within the frames of family life or monkhood. Strangely, historical events seem to have forced to them to adopt occupations involving money lending at market ( usurious ? ) rates of interest , and affiliated businesses of accepting pawns of gold, trading in gold, silver, diamonds, and precious stones. Anyway, we have got to live with it.

Other merchant castes, whatever name they are called by, such as Vysya, SrESHThi, Setty, kOmaTi, Gaura, Gupta, et al, have also traditionally engaged in trade of gold, silver, diamonds and precious stones.

I shall leave aside Arab, Persian, European gold and diamond merchants, who sold gold, silver and diamonds to Indian Rajas (Barons), kings and emperors. As a part of their marketing and selling strategies and techniques, they used to gift gold, silver and diamonds to Indian barons, kings and emperors. As corollaries and offshoots, they expected to receive and actually received royal favors and protections. Jahangir, Shajahan, Srikrishna Deva Rayalu, Achyuta Rayalu, Venkatapati Rayalu, Shivaji, Sambhaji, et al received such gifts and reciprocated.

Post 1947, in Independent India, politicians, top bureaucrats, Governors, have adorned the crowns of Indian barons, kings and emperors. Naturally for the Gold, Silver, Diamond Merchants, the turn has come for them to present their GSDs to the modern barons, kings, emperors i.e. bureaucrats, Governors, and politicians.

Now, can we say that, Mr. Rosaiah, Tamil Nadu Governor, receiving the gold bracelet from the GSD Merchants Assn of Residual AP, is acontinuing the custom of receiving GSDs from GSD traders and extending royal favors in quid pro quo reciprocation to them . What favors and protections our Governors can overtly or covertly extend to GSD Merchants? That Tamil Nadu Governor belonged to the same social class (caste?), to which majority of GSD merchants belong to, i.e. traditional trader Community, whether it will be material or immaterial?

Why did the GSD traders chose Tamil Nadu Governor for presenting a gold bracelet? Why didn't they chose Mr. Narasimhan, the Governor of Residual Andhra Pradesh to inaugurate their association at Nellore, which happens to be very near to Tirumala-Tirupati, regularly visited by His Highness the Governor of RAP and Telangana?

Swami Vivekananda- Ramakrishna Parama Hamsa (RKPH) सवामी विवेकानंद, Gold कांचन, కాంచనం , silver, diamonds (GSD) and women (कामिनी కాంతలు).

An impression was created that Ramakrishna Parama Hamsa,( guru of Swami Vivekananda) suffered from touch-allergy of gold. We can see a anecdotal story in this regard: A devotee of Shri RKPH wanted to test the abhorrence of Late RKPH. The devotee kept some gold under the pillows and couch on which RKPH used to sleep. Without knowing that there was gold underneath his pillows and couch, Late RKPH lied down on the bed and was immediately shocked by the touch (like an electric shock). Then that devotee came forward, lifted the couch and the pillows to show the hidden gold. All the devotees present there were greatly surprised by the renunciation of Shri RKPH.

About renunciation of gold and women (कामिनी कांचन, కాంతా కాంచనాలు), by Swami Vivekananda. himself

Swami Vivekananda, during his tour of Europe, met Prof. Deussen in Germany.

SV was consuming spirits without hesitation.

Prof. Deussen was greatly surprised because he didn't expect Indian monks to be liquor users. He expected strict abstinence and teetotallism from them.
When Prof. Deussen expressed his surprise, Swami Vivekananda clarified to him that his oath of restraint to his Guru RKPH was only against gold and women. हमारे गुरू से हमारे वादा सिर्फ कामिनी कांचन के लिये. अन्य विषयों पर नहीं. మా గురువుకి మేము చేసిన వాగ్దానం కేవలం కామినీ కాంచనాల విషయంలోనే. అన్య విషయాలలో కాదు.

Soon after that, Swami Vivekananda returned to India, sea route, via Sri Lanka.

When he reached the Southern-most tip of Madras State, he was received and felicitated by the king of Ramnathpuram. The king presented Swami Vivekananda, a HUGE SOLID gold casket. Swami Vivekananda forgot about his pledge to his Guru RKPH about keeping distance from gold. He readily accepted the gold casket.

For proof, we shall see this PARA from his letter.

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Ms. Mary Hale from Ramnad, vide his letter dated 30th Jan. 1897:
"... The Raja of Ramnad has presented his address to "His most Holiness" in a huge casket of solid gold beautifully worked ...".

This "His most Holiness" Swami Vivekananda referred to was himself.

ybrao-a-donkey's humble view वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య

Monks are Holinesses. Divine favors are expected from them direct, or indirectly as proxy for them, from Gods. Governors are Highnesses. Favors of Governance are expected from them.

Didn't Karl Marx say, that all human relationships are financial, monetary and pecuniary?

Question प्रश्न ప్రశ్న : Instead of blaming and finding fault with Highnesses (Presidents, PMs, Governors, CMs) and Holinesses (Monks and Saints), why don't you write something about yourself? Why don't you confirm that your ass (गुद, గుదము) clean is clean always?

Answer जवाब జవాబు As already clarified, writing autobiographical anecdotes may result in self-praise and criticism of others (आत्म स्तुति और पर निंदा, ఆత్మ స్తుతి మరియు పరనింద). Sometimes, in the process, we may hurt the feelings of our employers, erstwhile job-colleagues, friends and acquaintances. This may take place iadvertantly, or because truth may hurt persons. Getting hurt by truth is a human trait. For this reason only, I write in a sort of semi- incognito.

Anyway, here is an autobiographical anecdote. I am not disclosing any names, to safeguard privacy of others.

When I was undergoing training as a Bank Officer in a Rayala Seema town, at the end of my tenure in that town, my Bank Manager invited me to a private one-to-one dinner at his residence. Just before I was to throw into my mouth, the first cud of my rice bolus of which I was very fond of, he said: "Do you know, why did I call you for a dinner? Do you think that you are a special and very efficient person? No, not."

I paused, indecisive to reply in what manner, because it was a most unexpected question from my boss.

He said: "Remember, you are going to work in this Bank in different capacities. Whenever somebody calls you for a dinner, do not forget that he would come next day to the Bank with a request for a favour. He may ask you for a draft without charging commission, or to release a Lorry Receipt without collecting the bill amount. ...".

In those days, Bank Managers had authority and discretion, to waive commission keeping in view the future businesses which can be expected from the applicant. This authority was withdrawn later. By giving his advice, my boss opened my eyes.

Whether he followed his advice or not, I followed my boss's advice meticulously in my career. Knowing my nature, no customer invited me for dinner. Nor, did I give any dinners/lunches/parties to any Government Official/Corporate customer, for getting favours to Bank from them.

One or two drink parties which I attended later, with my subsequent seniors and bosses, also ended up to be rather unpleasant affairs for me, and an opportunity for party-hosts to heckle at me , while my seniors and bosses enjoyed. Later, knowing that I shall not be useful to them, my seniors and bosses stopped taking me with them, to parties hosted by customers, or given by Bank Managers to Collectors, etc.

A rule in our Bank stipulated that Officers should not accept any gifts from customers, other than flowers and fruits, small articles of no / very low monetary value. The idea was to discourage corruption. In those days, corruption in Govt. Banks in India, used to be very low (except in Loan Departments), reasons not important here. Though there was no corruption, unintentional delays used to be common, and customers used to be made to run from pillar to posts. Even now, the same is the situation, according to my perception, as a retired Officer and as an outsider.

Once, as a part of my habit, I handled a problem of a customer as soon as it came up, applying a flexible mind to rules and did his work very fast, unasked by him or anybody, as against the normal Public Sector Banks and Government Offices practice of sending a non-routine, non-monotonous-daily-problem, through a tunnel of ABCD technique. A = Avoid, B = Pass on the Buck, C = Confuse, D = Delay. Pushing the problem upward or downward, or sidewards or confusing the public, or delaying was common. Govt. employees and PSB employees in India are expected to deposit their brains in a rack in their home, before attending their offices, come to Office, blindly follow the dictates of the bosses, go back in the evening, take out the brain from the almyrah and insert it, into his-her skull.

Surprised at the speed and unasked work done by me and my assistant, the son of that aged customer visited our Bank and unnecessarily-profusely thanked me. Then it came out, that he happened to be a Police Head Constable. He said: "...In our Department, work will not move, on its own, without follow up. You have to follow up the matter every day from desk to desk. I have come here thinking that I have to revolve around your Section at least for two months. ..."

He asked for my home address and wanted to see me at my home. Normally, I did not meet customers at home, before doing their work or after doing their work, because such need never arose for me. As he was persistent, I gave my card. Next Sunday, he turned up at my home and offered me Rs. 500/-, saying that he was giving it out of his pleasure. I returned the money saying that it was not a custom in our bank. I told him jocularly (in a lighter vein) that our Bank has a rule that we should not accept anything other than flowers and fruits, and if he was so particular that he should gift something to me, he might give me one or two mangoes.

The Police Head Constable went out and returned with a cardboard box of about a dozen or two dozen mangoes. I was expecting him to give one or two mangoes at a later date. But in fifteen minutes, he brought a box of mangoes.

There was nobody in my house to eat so many mangoes. I was worried, what to do with them.

That box of mangoes, if they were gifted when I was aged 16, in dire poverty and starvation in 1965-66-67, with four younger brothers to share and fighting for one small mango, it would have immensely delighted me. But, not Now in 2000, with acidity, mangoes are unwelcome.

In spite of my best efforts, I could not force the Policeman to take back his box of mangoes. Leaving the mangoes to my fate, he left.

Shortly, came a friend of mine, as a part of a friendly drop-in. Seeing the mangoes box, he asked me at what price and where I bought/brought the mangoes. To him, I narrated the whole story of gifting by the policman.

Hearing me, my friend could not restrain himself from laughing and laughing, as if he was taking part in a World Laughter Day. Finally, he said: "Don't eat these mangoes. Don't believe that this policeman who gifted you these mangoes, bought them, paying from his pocket. Nay. They get these mangoes FREE or at a throw-away price from the foot-path sellers or fruit-cart-vendors , as a part of police mamool, and threatening them with cases for obstructing traffic, if they refuse to yield. If you eat these sinful mangoes, you will become a partner in his guilt.

This story is only 40% complete. I am leaving it, as I am apprehensive that it may result in self-praise.


This criticism made by me against the Banks, Govt. Offices, Police Dept., Police Head Constable, Governor of Tamil Nadu, Gold Silver Diamond Merchants Association are not to be viewed as any malicious vitriolic fault finding against them. After all, they are all, including me, slaves of this monstrous Capitalist System. Unless, it is replaced by Enlightened Democratic Total Socialism, radical changes cannot be brought out. That Total Socialism, though may appear to be impractical utopian dream, we as a poor country of 1.3 billion people have to move on for a better future. Singapore models of Chandra Babu Naidu, Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley will not solve our nearly-unsolvable problems. Resorting to Singapore model will be like, unable to bear heat, falling from a hot-pan into the stove.

532 Does consumption of myrobalan reduce sexual prowess? क्या हरीतकी को छे महीने खाने से लैगिक शक्ति कम हो जायेगा. కరక్కాయను ఆరునెలలు తింటే లైంగిక శక్తి తగ్గుతుందా.

Want black hair at the risk of losing masculinity? बाल काला होना या पुंसत्व खो जाना ? జుట్టు నల్ల పడాలా, లేక పుంసత్వాన్ని కోల్పోవాలా?

World language English in Roman script: प्रपंच भाषा अंग्रेजी, रोमन स्क्रिप्ट में। ప్రపంచ భాష ఇంగ్లీషు రోమన్ స్క్రిప్టులో.
In my earlier posts, I have written about how much I am indebted to Late Suravaram Pratapa Reddy, for his great enlightening book 'Andhrula sAnghika caritra' (The Social History of Andhras, which had greatly influenced my thinking.

Late Suravaram Pratapa Reddy covered the Social History of Andhras, dynasty periodwise, i.e. CAlukya period, kAkatIya period, Vijayanagara period, 1600 to 1757 period etc.

The period of coverage of Hampi Vijayanagara rule is very extensive, probably because Vijayanagara Kings patronised poets, musicians, dancers, and other artists, and consequently lot of literature is available describing the conditions prevailing in those days.

The verses in books of those days, elaborate descriptions of life styles of people of various castes and occupations. Late Shri Pratapa Reddy quoted extensively from the books of those days. We shall take up one such verse, which describes the lifestyle of a 'yati' (yati = one who tries. Try what? Try to attain 'yogA' unification with the Sureme Soul 'paramAtma'). Yatis tend to be passing through a path of enlightenment through self-regulation (In Bhagavad gita, we have a chapter by name Atma Samyama yOgA - the path of self-control.), undertaking penance ('tapas'). Now quote from Suravaram:

Page 292 of Social History of Andhras.
trishavaNa snAnamulu, ishTa dEva pUja
grantha pArAyaNamu, parabrahma cinta,
bhaiksha bhukti, harItakI bhakshaNambu,
ajina Sayanambu kaligi, ayyati vosagu.

 National language Hindi, in dEvanAgari script:
त्रिषवण स्नानमुलु, इष्ट देव पूज,
ग्रंथ पारायणंबु, पर ब्रह्म चिंत,
भैक्ष भुक्ति, हरीतकी भक्षणंबु,
अजिन शयनंबु कलिगि, अय्यति वॊसगु.

 Mother tongue Telugu language మాతృభాష తెలుగులో:
త్రిషవణ స్నానములు, ఇష్ట దేవ పూజ
గ్రంథ పారాయణము, పరబ్రహ్మ చింత
భైక్ష భుక్తి, హరీతకీ భక్షణంబు,
అజిన శయనంబు కలిగి , అయ్యతి వొసగు.

Source of the verse quoted by Shri Suravaram Pratapa Reddy: Book by name Suka Saptati, page 3-545.

Further observation by Shri Suravaram:
దశమాతా హరీతకీ అని వైద్య శాస్త్రము. అది చాల ఉపయోగకారి. చక్కెర పాకులో మురబ్బాగా ఊరవేసిన కరక్కాయ దినమొకటి వంతున ఆరు నెలలు తింటే, నరసిన వెంట్రుకలు నల్లవగునందురు. కానీ పురుషులకు పుంసత్వమును క్షీణింప చేయుననియు అందురు. ఇచట యతి దానిని సేవించుట పురుషత్వమును తగ్గించుకొనుటకే.

Back to English
English gist of the verse: The poet of the Suka Saptati was describing the daily regimen of a yati (Enthusiastic trier of Union with God. ybrao-a-donkey notes: The difference between a yati and a yogi: Yati is still in a stage of making attempts and efforts. Yogi has already accomplished the Yoking Union with the Supreme Soul.).

TrishavaNa snAnamulu - refers to three head-baths a day with cool water (considered as an aid for control of kAma (lust and sexual appetite)). ishTa dEva pUja refers to the worship of one's favourite God(dess).

Grantha pArAyaNamu - refers to perusal and study of devotional books and scriptures. Parabrahma cinta - refers to concentrating, contemplating and meditating on the Supreme Soul.

Bhaiksha bhukti - refers to satisfying one's hunger with alms begged from houses. harItakI bhakshaNambu refers to eating of the fruit Chebulic myrobalan (Terminalia Catappa). Indian gallnut.

ajina Sayanambu kaligi - refers to sleeping on deer skin. ayyati vosagu - refers to 'that seeker gives (does daily)'.

Approximate gist of Late Suravaram Pratapa Reddy quoted above: The maxim of medical science is : 'Myrobalan is equal to mother'. (ybrao-a-donkey's explanation: Probably it means: Mother is regarded as protector of her children. Myrobalan is ten times more effective when compared to a single mother). It is very useful. People say that if a person eats everyday, a myrobalan fruit preserved and processed/soaked in sugar as a murabba (Murabba seems to be an Arab word, a name for preserved fruits such as pomegranate, in sugar or honey) continuously for six months, his-her gray hair becomes black. But people also say that, it reduces masculinity of males. The purpose of yoke-seekers consuming myrobalan, is to get their masculinity reduced.

ybrao-a-donkey's humble view वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య

It is not clear, what was the source of Late Suravaram Pratapa Reddy, for this information. I am unable to trace this in our ancient Ayurveda books such as Junion vAgbhaTa's ashTAnga sangraham, Susruta samhita, Caraka Samhita, Parahita Samhita, and other books.

If any of our readers have any herbal/Ayurvedic experiences of six months consumption of myrobalan fruit blackening gray hair, or reducing masculinity of males, they are welcome to write their clinical experiences/comments below.
ybrao-a-donkey's humble view No.2. वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య

Herbs like other medicines of other systems can have many effects. Increase strength and stamina of users. Decreasing strength and stamina of users. Increasing urges, without increasing powers, stamina, strength. Decreasing urges, without affecting powers, stamina and strength.
One personal experience I wish to quote. Invariably on almost all days I consumed brinjal in my food, I had a raised sexual urge, without any proportional increase in sexual prowess.

In the sameway there may be two possibilities for the yatis who consume myrobalan: 1. They may have greater self-restraint + reduced desire to have sex, without affecting their sexual prowess. 2. They may not experience any change in sexual urges, while their sexual stamina gets reduced, in other words, they may have slower erections. Unfortunately, Ayurvedic physicians in India, whether qualified or traditionally inherited doctors, do not maintain sufficient clinical records of the results of consumption of medicines containing myrobalan.

Suggested solution: Ayurvedic doctors may have to, not only maintain detailed clinical records, but also make them available (without mentioning names and addresses of pateients, to protect their privacy), to researchers for computer data entry and analyses.

More citizens and patients should come forward for clinical experimentation and studies.

Anyway, from what we read from Late Suravaram Pratapa Reddy's Social History of Andhras, we have two choices. Get black hair and sacrifice masculinity , or bear with gray hair, without foregoing masculinity.

Telugu is a language spoken by more than 80 million people, spread over the world. The ancient literature of the Telugu language is richer than the literature of the English language, both in terms of quantity and quality, to the best of my limited knowledge.

Like many other Indian languages, Telugu's vocabulary consists native Indian words (called dEsi), as well as the imported Aryan Sanskrit words (called tatsamam, or prakritis). dEsi words and phrases are easy to pronounce. Tatsama (imported from Sanskrit) words and phrases are difficult to pronounce, but they have their own peculiar beauty.

As a sample, we shall take up Telugu vocabulary, and semantics, along with the figures of speech, pertaining to the Telugu word 'pulinamu'. Pulinam is word imported from Sanskrit 'pulinaha', by adding the suffix 'mu'. Pulinaha or pulinamu means, a sand dune. These sand dunes are quite common in Indian rivers, particularly during summer months, when the rivers dry up due to intense heat.

In Latin script.
The prosody used is called 'sIsamu' and 'tETa giti'. sIsam verses have four lines. Invariably, it has an attachment of another four line verse called 'tETa giti' (light verse- meaning not heavy stuff).

Context: The Sanskrit scripture VyAsa MahAbharata is well-known. This scripture was translated into Telugu language, by three Great poets by name Nannaya, tikkana, and yerrApraggaDa. This particular verse is from Volume 7, called 'drONa parvam'. drONa was the famous Guru of archery for both the PanDava and Kaurava Princes. drONa parva (volume 7) deals with that part of the Mahabharata war, in which drONAcArya was the Chief Commander of the Kaurava Forces. After nine days of fierce battle, Bhishma, the grandsire of the Pandavas and Kauravas, fell to an arrow from SikhanDi & Arjuna.

At the request of Prince duryOdhana, in the place of Bhishma, drONa became the Supreme Commander of the Kaurava forces, and continued the battle for another five days. This particular verse describes the scene of the battle ground, after a days war.

The battle ground is being compared to a River of Blood. Like the regular Rivers of water, the River of Blood too has all the components and constituents, such as waves, froth, fishes, stones, etc.

The translator poet, tikkana, of the 13th Century (1200 -1280 CE), in those days, writing with on dried palmyra leaves with an iron stylus (called ghanTam), when there was no electricity, working on oil lamps, when there were no computers or laptops wrote thousands of verses.

Here is an English gist of one of such verses quoted above, which depicts the RIVER OF BLOOD on the battle ground.

dhavaLa chAmarAlu are the white fans (fly brushes) made of the hair of animals known as 'chAmarAs- a type of yaks, bos-grunniers', used for weaving the battle-tired princes. These brushes are also called 'vinjAmarAlu వింజామరాలు'. DinDIrams are bubbles and drops of froth on the river's waves. punDarIkams are white and red lotuses. The poet is comparing the white fly brushes, to the white/red lotuses with froth appearing on their top. Rivers whether of water, or blood have waves with froth on them. Hence, this simile/metaphor is quite justifiable. He is also comparing them to swans (marALams) in the river.

karavAlams are swords used in the battle. These the poet is comparing to fishes (mInamula bhangi).


In 'talalu Silala cADpu' talalu =heads, Silalu = round stones, cADpu = like. The poet is comparing the severed heads of the soldiers to the stones which we see in rivers (whether rivers of blood, or rivers of water).

COMPARISON OF 'dESamulu' to a row of water weeds in rivers. 

dESamulu SaivAla rEkhayu. The meaning of the word dESamulu is not found in dictionaries. We have to search. In the word dESAkshi rAga, a name of a musical tune, akshi means = a girl having eyes, dESamu might have meant either fish or a lotus petal, both of which are used in similes employed by poets. Anyway, the poet has compared the dESamulu to water weeds. After further investigation, I shall re-write this paragraph.

mAmsambu panka samAnata. mAmsambu = flesh. panka = mud, grime. samAnata = equality, similarity. Here, the similarity of flesh of the wounded bodies of the corpses, and the mud and grime which is found in rivers, is very clear.


bhaTASva mAtanga anga bhagna rathamula tiTTalu pulinamulu kAga. bhaTAs = soldiers. aSva = horses. mAtanga = elephants. bhagna = broken. rathamula = chariots. kAga = having become. pulinamulu = sand dunes. All these heaps and mounds of the dead soldiers, horses, elephants, broken chariots, the poet is comparing to sand dunes (pulinams).

In the smaller verse of the four lines, the comparison is between the swollen groups of souls of slain warriors, and the swollen river. Exact meaning is not clear. The swollen river of blood, presumably may also serve as water to quench the thirst of dead souls, (pending their judgement day, they seem to be called prEtams or bhEtALas, surviving on blood).

Now, compare this scene of river of blood on the battle grounds of Mahabharata, called kurukshEtram, to the heaps of dead bodies, exploded buildings and cars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakisthan, Syria, Turkey under guidance from ISIS, Taliban etc.

There are five more verses to be discussed under pulinams (sand dunes). We have seen one set of sand dunes consisting of heaps broken chariots, horses, elephants, soldiers. The remaining four pulinams (sand dunes), will be taken up in the forthcoming blog posts.

530 Part 3 of Futurological Predictions for Telangana & Residual Andhra Pradesh. भाग ३, तॆलंगाणा और शेष आंध्र प्रदेश భాగం ౩, తెలంగాణ, శేష్ ఆంధ్ర ప్రదేశ్ లకు భవిష్యత్ దర్శనాలు

World language English in Roman script: प्रपंच भाषा अंग्रेजी, रोमन स्क्रिप्ट में। ప్రపంచ భాష ఇంగ్లీషు రోమన్ స్క్రిప్టులో.

Political Predictions:


Who will be next Nadendla Bhaskara Rao or Chandra Babu Naidu, to stab KCR? History tends to repeat, unless leaders and people correct themselves. నాయకులు, ప్రజలు తమని తాము సరిదిద్దుకోకపోతే, చరిత్ర పునరావృత్తమవుతూ ఉంటుంది. Two stabbings which Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh saw. ఉమ్మడి రాష్ట్రం, రెండు వెన్ను పోట్లను చవిచూచింది.:--

1. One stabbing by Shri Nadendla Bhaskara Rao. మొదటి వెన్నుపోటు శ్రీనాదెండ్ల భాస్కర రావు చేత చేయబడింది. This was done to Late N.T. Rama Rao the 1983 C.M., by Shri Nadendla Bhaskara Rao, with the help of the Governor, Shri Ramlal. ఇది అప్పటి గవర్నర్ శ్రీ రామ్ లాల్ గారి సహాయంతో, శ్రీ నాదెండ్ల భాస్కరరావు చేసింది. భాధితుడు స్వర్గీయ ఎన్ టీ ఆర్. Shri Chandra Babu Naidu was the younger son-in-law of NTR, and was in the bandwagon of NTR, running the circus in his tent. Nadendla Bhaskara Rao and Ramlal were made to appear as villains, and Late Indira Gandhi had to correct it.

2. The second stabbing, within a decade, was by Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu himself. He politically stabbed his father-in-law NTR, by luring MLAs (with or without money and ministerial positions), and succeeded in displacing him. This time, there was no Indira Gandhi to save NTR. NTR was left in the lurch, and finally he succcumbed either to his misery and broken heart. Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu appeared like a villain, yet, people elected him twice in spite of the stabbing stains.

3. In 2004, Mr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy succeeded Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, by making and fulfilling a nearly impossible promise of free power to agricultural wells. Ms. Sonia Gandhi's 2004 promise of giving a Telangana might have helped Congress in 2004. In 2009, Mr. Rajasekhar Reddy not only successfully swam the elections, but also helped the Congress and UPA's success to reach the throne of Delhi.

4. Political stabbing is the culture both in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Like eclipses, solstices, equinoxes, p_stabs also repeat in periodical cycles, a la the booms and troughs in Stock Exchanges. Had he been alive, Mr. Rajasekhara Reddy too might have suffered a p_stab, but instead a helicopter-mishap took him away to some non-existing heaven/hell.

5. But the cycle of p_stabs cannot remain dormant for ever. Though Mr. KCR seems to have been seated firmly in his Chief Ministerial throne, with his son KTR, nephew Harish Rao, daughter Kavita weaving chamarams (a fan made of the fur of an Indian animal called 'chamara' used in king's courts, to wave, blow wind and sway air at kings in luxury when electric fans were not in vogue) by his side. But the p_stabs can't wait. The safer and dictatorial a ruler may appear, yet he may be equally vulnerable.

We have to wait and see, who the political villain in Telangana is going to be.


Though India's Attorney-General is reported to have opined that Governor of Andhra Pradesh can police the Hyderabad City (the Common Capital of Telangana and RAP), under Section 8 of A.P. Bifurcation Act, with the help of his advisors, it is likely that Governor may do some 'action' scenes, a la in Bollywood and Tollywood films. This is because he has no inclination, or time to do full justice to Residual Andhra Pradesh. Though he can call the DGPs of both the States and advise them on what they may or what they may not do in Hyderabad, it is very likely that none of them will listen to it.

This is because DGPs of the two States will want to be disobedient to the Head of the State, but because it goes against the the Principle of Unity of Command, in Management Science. To elucidate, DGP of Telangana will not like to take conflicting orders from Governor, and the Chief Minister of Telangana. They will prefer to comply only with the orders of KCR-KTR-Harish-Kavita, and not the orders of Guv.

What the Guv can do then? He has already said that Lord Venkateswara (God of TTD, Tirumala) will resolve the disputes between the two States. One question which arises is, if God Venkateswara is going to resolve the problems, Lord can be made the Governor. Why pay salary to a lower individual?

KCR & Co. will not listen to anybody, the Governor, the Attorney General, the Home Ministry, or even the PM. He has already said that even Brahma cannot save Mr. Naidu. Besides, Mr. KCR has already prayed Lord Lakshmi Narasimha at Yadagirigutta.

Suppose, if Mr. KCR's Govt. decides to arrests Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, and the DGP of Telangana goes to comply with his CM's orders, Governor will not probably ask the DGP, Telangana to restrain himself. Even if he tells, DGP, Telangana may not listen. On the other hand, Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu may instruct DPG, Andhra Pradesh to arrange an AP Police cordon around him.

Probably Residual Andhra Pradesh may need another Panner Selvam (the Acting Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, when Ms. Jayalalithaa was arrested and in jail), to act as C.M. of A.P., till such a time Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu gets a bail. Will this Panner Selvam's role be donned by Mr. Lokesh, or by Mr. Balakrishna through his proxy Lokesh, or by Mr. Enamala Ramakrishnudu?
