571 On whose behalf of and against whom Dr. Deepak Pental and Ms. Vandana Siva are fighting? किस के तरफ और किसके खिलाफ डा. दीपक पॆंटाल, और वंदना शिवा लड रहे हैं? డా. దీపక్ పెంటాల్ మరియు వందన శివ గారలు ఎవరి తరఫున మరియు ఎవరికి వ్యతిరేకంగా పోరాడుతున్నారు?

Ms. Vandana Siva and Mr. Deepak Pental seem to be at conflicting ends. What for they are fighting? ON whose behalf they are fighting? Who is right? Who is wrong? How the Government is going to handle this? Whose side will the Govt. take? Or does the Govt. has its own prompters? The subject matter is genetic modification of mustard seeds. The subject of oilseeds is very crucial both from the point of view of burgeoning imports of oilseeds, skyrocketing of prices of edible oils, need for import substitution, impact of imported edible oils on the health of Indians, impact of genetically modified oil seeds on the health of INdians.

Here is an important contradicting article by Dr. Deepak Pental, Retd. Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, and an expert on Genetically Modified Seeds, in Deccan Chronicle dated 26th Aug. 2015. Click to go to http://www.deccanchronicle.com/150826/commentary-op-ed/article/gmo-your-mustard-good.


Mr. Deepak Pental in his above linked article observes:
Personalities that aspire to be cult figures often resort to hyperbole and lies and Vandana Shiva has done exactly this in her piece, GMO in my mustard, which appeared in this newspaper on August 12, 2015. Before misinformations are pointed out and deliberate distortions are nailed, it is important to look at the issue both from scientific and developmental perspective.

HEALTH NOTES

Is Yogurt and curd same? कया योगर्ट और कर्ड एक है या अलग अलग? యోగర్ట్ మరియు కర్డ్ ఒకటేనా వేరు వేరా ?

All these days I am under the impression both yogurt and curd are synonymous and intersubstitutable. But the following link of TimesofIndia shows that yogurt and curd have different bacterial strains and different methods of preparation. For those who wish to read this Timesofindia article which is quite informative:-

अभी तक मै यह राय में हूँ कि, योगर्ट और कर्ड, दोनों एक ही है, एक शब्द के जगह में दूसरे शब्द को हम उपयोग कर सकते हैं। लेकिन, टैम्स् आफ इंडिया के निम्न लिंक यह दिखाती है कि, योगर्ट और कर्ड दोनों भिन्न भिन्न पध्धतियों से बनते हैं, और दोनों के बेक्टीरियल स्टरेयिन अलग रहते हैं। टैम्स आफ इंडिय आर्टिकिल पढने चाहे पाठकों के लिये यहाँ है लिंक:-

నేను ఇప్పటి దాకా ఏ అభిప్రాయం తో ఉన్నానంటే, యోగర్టు మరియు కర్డ్ రెండూ పెరుగు యొక్క రెండు పేర్లని, ఒక దాని స్థానంలో మరొక పదాన్ని వాడచ్చనీ. కానీ ఈ క్రింద ఇవ్వ బడిన టైమ్స్ ఆఫ్ ఇండియా లింకు లోని వ్యాసం, యోగర్టు మరియు కర్డ్ రెండు భిన్నమైన పధ్ధతులతో తయారవుతాయనీ, వాటిల్లో ఉండే బాక్టీరియా వేరు వేరనీ, సూచిస్తుంది. టైమ్స్ ఆఫ్ ఇండియా వ్యాసాన్ని చదవాలనుకునేవారికి ఇదిగో లింకు.
Click to go to http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/diet/How-is-yogurt-different-from-curd/articleshow/46702468.cms.

The article though mentioned that yogurt is more an industrial product, it has also given the recipe for making yogurt, which is not different from making home curd. However, since the article is asking us to first buy commercial yogurt, and reuse it in future also, we have to presume that the bacterial strains will be different.

यह टैम्स आफ इंडिया व्यास यह भी सूचित कर्ती है कि, योगर्ट औद्योगिक उत्पत्ति होती है, और कर्ड घरेलू उत्पत्ती होती है। लेकिन इस व्यास में दिया हुआ योगर्ट बनाने के रेसिपी में सूचित पध्धती हम घरों में दही बनाने के पध्धती से अधिकांश भिन्न नहीं है। लेकिन इस व्यास यह भी सूचन दिया है, पहली बार कमर्षियल योगर्ट खरीद कर, उस से गृह योगर्ट बनाना और उसको पुनः विनियोग करना उचित है। या ने, बैक्टीरिया फरक के बारे में हम और खोज करना चाहिए।

ఈ టైమ్స్ ఆఫ్ ఇండియా వ్యాసం, మనకు సూచించే మరొక అంశం ఏమిటంటే, యోగర్ట్ ప్రాధమికంగా పారిశ్రామిక, వాణిజ్య ఉత్పత్తి కాగా, కర్డ్ గృహ ఉత్పత్తి. కానీ ఈవ్యాసంలో ఇవ్వబడిన ఇంట్లో యోగర్ట్ తయారు చేసుకోటానికి ఇవ్వబడిన పధ్ధతిలో యోగర్ట్ తయారీకీ, ఇంట్లో పెరుగు తయారీకి నాకేమీ తేడా కనిపించటం లేదు. అయితే మొదటిసారి యోగర్ట్ తయారు చేసుకునేటపుడు, బజారులో కొన్న వాణిజ్య యోగర్టును వాడి, తరువాత దానిని మరల మరల ఉపయోగించమని సలహా ఇవ్వటం జరిగింది. కనుక బాక్టీరియా భిన్నంగా ఉంటుంది అని మనం భావించ వచ్చు. అయితే, యోగర్ట్ మరియు ఇంటి పెరుగు రెండిటి మధ్య ఉండే బాక్టీరియా భేదాలను గురించి మనం అధ్యయనం చేయటం అవసరం.

570 Did truthful, forbearing, patient, discriminating, dispassionate, God devotee YudhishThira gamble betting his employees or his slaves? क्या सत्यवान, क्षमावान, सहनशील, विचक्षणाशील, दैवभक्त युधिष्ठिर, शकुनि से द्यूत में अपने नौकरों को बॆट्टिंग किया या अपने स्लेव्स को बॆट्टिंग किया ? మన సత్యవాన్, క్షమావాన్, సహనశీల, విచక్షణాశీల, దైవభక్త ధర్మరాజుగారు శకునితో ఆడిన జూదంలో తన నౌకర్లను పణంగా పెట్టాడా లేక బానిసలను పణంగా పెట్టాడా ?


What sort of man are you? Of all the incidents of Yudhisthira's life, you remember only his seeing hell. You don't remember his truthfulness, his forbearance, his patience, his discrimination, his dispassion, his devotion to God.' I was about to say many more things, when Hriday stopped my mouth. After a little while Jatindra left the place, saying he had some other business to attend to. It isn't good to be clever. The crow is very clever, but it eats others filth.'
... At my blog No.Click to go to http://sankaracharyayb.blogspot.com/search/label/008', Shri Ravi commented as under (part of the comment is quoted below) citing what Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa said to one of his devotees by name Jatin :--

This made me very angry. I said to him: 'What sort of man are you? Of all the incidents of Yudhisthira's life, you remember only his seeing hell. You don't remember his truthfulness, his forbearance, his patience, his discrimination, his dispassion, his devotion to God.' I was about to say many more things, when Hriday stopped my mouth.

After a little while Jatindra left the place, saying he had some other business to attend to.

2.It isn't good to be clever. The crow is very clever, but it eats others filth.'

3.The right intelligence is that through which one attains God; but the intelligence that enables one to become a deputy magistrate or a lawyer, or to acquire a house, is a mean intelligence. It is like thin and watery curd, which merely soaks flattened rice but does not add any flavour to it. It is not like thick, superior curd. But the intelligence through which one attains God is like thick curd." ...


ybrao-a-donkey's humble views. You need not agree with me. You have every right to express your views and criticise me. Welcome. वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय। आप मुझ से सहमत होने के निर्बंध नहीं है। आप को अपने अभिप्रायों को व्यक्त करने के और मुझे खुरदा पकडने के सभी हक हैं। स्वागत. వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య. మీరు నాతో ఏకీభవించవలసిన నిర్బంధం లేదు. మీ అభిప్రాయాలను వ్యక్తం చేసే స్వేఛ్ఛ, నన్ను విమర్శించే అన్ని హక్కులు మీకున్నాయి. స్వాగతం.
Just as people are afraid of exploring and speaking truth about Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, and Swami Vivekananda, people are equally afraid of thinking or exploring about YudhishThira (dharma rAja). Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa in the above quote, is very convinced about the discriminative abilities of Yudhishthira. This is probably because his convictions are based on anecdotes he heard from preachers and discoursers (ప్రవచనకర్తలు प्रवचनकार). We shall see from Vyasa's Sanskrit Mahabharata:-
Vyasa MahabhArata , Sabha Parva (Book 2 dealing with Assemblies), Chapter 85 (deals with the betting and gambling process between YudhishThira and Sakuni), verses 17 to 19.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE ABOVE SANSKRIT VERSES BY KISHORE MOHAN GANGULY, slightly modified by me.
Yudhishthira said,--‴I have a hundred thousand serving-girls, all young, and decked with golden bracelets on their wrists and upper arms, and with coins round their necks and other ornaments, adorned with costly garlands and attired in rich robes, daubed with the sandal paste, wearing jewels and gold, and well-skilled in 64 arts, especially versed in dancing and singing, and who wait upon and serve at my command the celestials, the Snataka Brahmanas, and kings. With this wealth, I will stake with you !‴

How did 11th Century CE Telugu translator of Mahabharata, the great Nannaya mahAkavi handled this scene? నన్నయగారు శ్రీ మదాంధ్ర మహాభారతం, సభా పర్వంలో దీనిని ఎలా అనువదించారు.

Vyasa, in Chapter 85 of Book 2 (Sabha parvam, Adhyayam 85) used 40 verses to describe how betting between Yudhishthira and Sakuni. Vyasa maintained a depictive drama. Nannaya, disposed off the whole process in seven lines of prose given above. Nannaya wrote yOshita sahasrambulu which means 1000 girls. Vyasa's verse 2-85-18 mentions 100,000 girls. Vyasa described them as apart from being decorated, and adorned, as experts in 64 arts. Nannaya condensed everything. Nannaya used one attribute to describe Yudhishthira: "baddha matsarunDu" = "one who is bound by envy". In my humble opinion, Nannaya should have either adhered to original of Vyasa or alternatively used the adjective "durASA baddhunDu" = "one who is bound by greed" which aptly describes YudhishThira's State of Mind at that time. Anyway these are all minor abherrations. It will be suffice to say that those who want to explore probable facts and truths should analyse Vyasa Mahabharata instead of depending on Indian Language translations.

Why I am writing this is, All India Radio (AkASa vANi), Vijayawada Station, is every Friday morning at 9.30 broadcasting a Mahabharata analysis program based on Telugu Bharatam. Better thing ought to have been: comparing both Vyasa and Andhra Mahabharatas.

Back to wreckless betting of 100,000 girls made by Yudhishthira: As ybrao-a-donkey my mind thinks on behalf of the working class. Okay, let Yudhishthira bet himself, his own brothers including his step-brothers, their common wife. We shall concede his right for the time being. But does Yudhishthira have a right to gamble with the lives of servant girls? Are they slaves? Are they bettable commodities?

Now, our Great Preacher Ramakrishna Paramahamsa says that Yudhishthira's truthfulness, his forbearance, his patience, his discrimination, his dispassion, his devotion to God were not seen by the visitor Hriday or Jatin.

This is not the sole instance of Yudhishthira lacking discriminating abilities, particularly when he is caught by covetousness a la Dhritarashtra. These negative instances outnumber the instances where Yudhishthira acted with equanimity and justice. One such rare positive instance is Yaksha prasnalu (Yaksha's Questions) episode in the Book of Forests (Aranya Parvam). These yaksha prasnalu were already dealt with in our blog post No. 153.

569 Part 2 of Educational Accomplishments of Mr. Narendra Modi, PM of India भाग २, श्री नरेंद्र मोडी महोदय के विद्या विजयों। భాగం 2 శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ మహాశయుల విద్యా విజయాలు

This is in continuation of our blog post No. 135. यह, हमारे ब्लाग पोस्ट नं. १३५ के अगला भाग ఇది మన బ్లాగ్ పోస్ట్ నం. 135కి కొనసాగింపు. This blog post was made on 13th Feb. 2014 i.e. before 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, and before Mr. Narendra Modi became P.M. of INdia. In the blog post I raised a doubt on the M.A. degree of Shri Narendra Modi. I wrote that I had sent an email to Gujarat University requesting them to place the details of the PG Degree of their Chief Minister (Gujarat CM at that time) Shri Narendra Modi on their website. I also indicated that, unfortunately, there was no action and that there was no reply. There itself, I pointed out that Rollins College took pride to place on their website that Rahul Gandhi was their alumni.

ब्लाग पोस्ट नं. १३५, दिनांक १३.२.२०१४, लोक सभा चुनाव के पहले, श्री नरेंद्र मोडी प्रधान मंत्री बनने के पहले ही लिखा हुआ था। उस ब्लाग पोस्ट में, मै श्री नरेंद्र मोडी महाशय के ऎम. ऎ. डिग्री के विषय में मेरे संदेह को प्रस्ताव किया था। मै यह भी लिखा था कि, मै श्री गुजरात विश्वविद्यालय को, ई मॆयिल् द्वारा, श्री नरेंद्र मोदी के स्नातकोत्तर ऎम. ऎ. राजनीती विद्या विवरों के यूनिवर्सिटी वॆब सैट् पर रखने के लिया प्रार्धना किया था। लेकिन उनहोंने उस ई मॆयिल पर कुछ चर्या भी नहीं लिया। मेरे ई मेयिल को जवाब भी नहीं दिया। उस ब्लाग पोस्ट में ही मै यह भी पायिंट अवुट् किया कि, रोलिन्स कालॆज्, अमॆरिका, अपने वॆब सैट में श्री राहुल गांधी को अपने पूर्व विद्यार्धी कहते हुए, थोडे गर्व से ही, उस विषय को अपने वॆब सैट पर रखे थे।

ఈ 135 నం. బ్లాగ్ పోస్ట్ 13.2.2౦14 అంటే 2014 లోక్ సభ ఎన్నికల ముందే, అంటే శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ గారు ప్రధాన మంత్రి కాక ముందే వ్రాయబడింది. ఆ బ్లాగ్ పోస్ట్ లో నేను శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ గారి ఎమ్. ఎ. రాజకీయ శాస్త్రం డిగ్రీ గురించి కొంత అనుమానాన్ని వ్యక్తం చేశాను. శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ గారి పీజీ విద్య వివరాలను శ్రీ గుజరాత్ యూనివర్సిటీ వారి వెబ్ సైట్లో పెట్టుకోమని శ్రీ గుజరాత్ యూనివర్సిటీ వారిని ఈ మెయిల్ ద్వారా విజ్ఞప్తి చేశాను. కానీ వారు ఏచర్యా తీసుకోలేదు, జవాబివ్వ లేదని కూడ వ్రాశాను. అదే బ్లాగ్ పోస్ట్ లో అమెరికాలో శ్రీ రోలిన్స్ కాలేజీ వారు శ్రీరాహుల్ గాంధీ తమ పూర్వ విద్యార్ధి అని సగర్వంగా పెట్టుకున్న విషయాన్ని ప్రస్తావించాను.

What is real and what is fake? असली क्या है, नकली क्या है ? ఏది అసలు ? ఏది నకిలీ ?

Foremost thing: Clarification. प्रप्रथम आवश्यकता : स्पष्टीकरण ప్రప్రథమంగా స్పష్టీకరణ

I have no LOVE OR HATE relationship with Shri Narendra Modi or Shri Rahul Gandhi or Shri Aravind Kejriwal or any other leader or party or religion. Whatever is written here, is written with the aim of searching for truth, and of course to promote my twin objectives of promoting atheism and Marxism (Total Socialism). There will be no dearth of integrity and sincerity. Mistakes, of course, will be taking place. You are always welcome to point out.

मुझे श्री नरेंद्र मोडी या श्री राहुल् गांधी या श्री अरविदं केज्रीवाल या किसी अन्य नेता या पार्टी या धर्म पर राग (प्रेम) या द्वेष नहीं है। सत्यान्वेषण मेरा लक्ष्य है। चित्त शुध्धी कम नहीं है। गलतीयों होते रहते है।

నాకు శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ యందు గానీ, శ్రీ రాహుల్ గాంధీ యందు గానీ, శ్రీ అరవింద్ కేజ్రీవాల్ యందు గానీ, మరే ఇతర నేతలు, పార్టీలు, మతాల యందు గానీ రాగ ద్వేషాలు లేవు. కేవలం సత్యాన్వేషణ దృష్టితో మాత్రమే వ్రాయటం జరుగుతున్నది. చిత్త శుధ్ధిలో లోపం ఉండదు. తప్పులు జరుగుతూ ఉంటాయి. వాటిని మీరు స్వేఛ్ఛగా ఎత్తి చూప వచ్చు.

Million Dollar question now is whether our PM has studied M.A. Politics or not? प्रश्न यह है कि हमारे माननीय प्रधान मंत्री ऎम. ऎ. राजनीति शास्त्र पढा या नहीं ? తేలని ప్రశ్న ఏమిటంటే మన ప్రధానిగారు ఎమ్. ఎ. రాజనీతి శాస్త్రం చదివినట్లా, చదవనట్లా ?

Answer for this question is to be given by Shri Narendra Modi. He alone is the right person and capable person to answer it.

इस प्रश्न को समाधान देने केलिये सर्व समर्ध श्री नरेंद्र मोडी भी है। सही व्यक्ती वे ही है।

ఈ ప్రశ్నకి జవాబివ్వ గలసిన శక్తి కలిగిన వారు శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ గారే. వారే ఈ విషయంలో, తగిన సమాచారాన్ని ప్రధానమంత్రిగారి వెబ్ సైట్ లో పెట్టిస్తే బాగుంటుంది.

A number of questions will arise in this connection. They pertain not only to Mr. Modi or Rahul Gandhi or Ms. Sonia Gandhi, but they relate to Indian Education System, Indian Political System, Public Administrative Law, Ethics, Psychology, Psychiatry, so on ... We can't cover all those in one blog post.

इस समय पर कई प्रश्न उठते हैं। वे, सिर्फ श्री मोडी दी श्री राहुल या सोनिया के बारे में नहीं होते हैं। भारतीय विद्या व्यवस्था, भारतीय राजकीय व्यवस्था, प्रजा पालन न्याय शास्त्र, नीती शास्त्र, मानसिक शास्त्र, मानसिक वैद्य शास्त्र, आदी आदी ... उन सब चीजों को हम एक ब्लाग में कवर नहीं कर सकते हैं।

It appears that Election Commission, and PMO has rejected an RTI application (Right to INformation Act) , for details of the M.A. Politics Degree of our beloved Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. This seems very unreasonable, unless there are very very very strong reasons to conceal PM's Educational Qualifications. It is also strange that when I approached Gujarat University and Delhi University to place the details of the studies of Shri Narendra Modi in their Universities and Colleges (or Distance Education Schools). Strangely, they are silent. Actually, they should have taken pride, in placing the details on their website, and confirming that our PM is their highly esteemed alumni. It is how foreign Universities, and Indian Private Indian Colleges/Universities do their business. Though our Government Universities/Colleges are not businesses as such, this seems to be a harmless method to improve the image(s) of Colleges and Universiies.

Of course, there may be a hitch in this. Like the South Korea's first Woman Prime Minister who was sentenced by a court for two year jail, if our politicians get convicted (convicted/acquitted alternatively in appeals) and go to jail, the Universities / Colleges may suffer a face loss, at least temporarily. Then, they may have to adopt an opportunistic method, which is employed in most Indian States. When a CM loses an election and is replaced by a rival, immediately the outgoing CM's photos in Govt. Offices are removed and thrown into dustbins. The incoming man while ordering such fate to his predecessor, will not bother about that similar fate will await him after five years.

PRESENT POSITION AND PROBLEM प्स्तुत स्थिती और समस्या ప్రస్తుత స్థితి మరియు సమస్య

Entire internet, particularly Twitter is ablaze and agog with tweets expressing doubts about the Educational Qualifications of Shri Narendra Modi. I provide below a link to the twitter handle: इंटरनॆट् सभी, प्रत्येक ट्विट्टर जिस पर अपने प्रधान मंत्रीजी को बहुत शौक है, श्री नरेंद्र मोडीजी के विद्यार्हताओं के विषय में उत्तेजित, उद्विग्न और उद्वेगित है। मै एक वैसे ट्विट्टर हाष हैंडिल को यहाँ लिंक दे रहा हूँ। ट्विट्टर को जाने के लिये क्लिक्। అంతర్జాలం మొత్తం, ముఖ్యంగా శ్రీనరేంద్ర మోడీ గారికి అత్యంత ప్రియమైన ట్విట్టర్.కామ్, లో ఒక హ్యాండిల్ హాష్ లో కొన్ని వందల ట్వీట్లు ఉన్నాయి. దీనిలోని భారతీయులంతా ఎంతో శ్రీ నరేంద్రమోడీ గారి విద్యార్హతల విషయంలో ఎంతో ఉత్తేజితులు, ఉద్విగ్నులు అయి ఉన్నారు. డిగ్రీ దిఖాఓ పీఎమ్ సాబ్ హాష్ ,ట్విట్టర్ డాట్ కామ్ కి వెళ్ళటానికి క్లిక్.

There are hundred of tweets and comments.

Qustion, सवाल, ప్రశ్న:

What seems to have motivated and triggered the tweet-gens about PM's M.A. degree, after one year of his functioning as PM?

PMindia.gov.in Official Website on 16.3.2015 mentioned in PM's profile as under:--
"...Narendra Modi has achieved all this thanks to hard work and the values instilled in his childhood. Born on 17 September 1950 in a small town in Gujarat, he grew up in a loving but poor family ‘without a spare rupee’. The initial hardships of life not only taught the value of hard work but also revealed to him the avoidable sufferings of the common people. That is why as chief minister, he lived his life by the principle of ‘Antyodaya’, of serving the last person in the queue. From a very young age he immersed himself in service to the nation, working with patriotic organisations. He completed his MA from Gujarat University. ...


It proudly declared that PM completed his M.A. from Gujarat University.

Netizens and Tweeters might have got suspicious, after PMIndia.gov.in (might have temporarily) removed the mention about PM's completing his M.A. For some period PMIndia the website might have omitted, a line relating to PM's M.A. Degree. Netizens and Tweeters gave links to pmindia.gov.in webpage, which they seem to have believed that it will remain static and thinking that removal of the line pertaining to PM's PG degree as permanent. But that particular web page is dynamic, and content may be changing frequently.

It is what seems to have happened.

Click to go to http://pmindia.gov.in/en/pms-profile/-- as on 22.08.2015..
This 22.08.2015 version says: "Shri Modi completed his MA in political science from Gujarat University.".

ybrao-a-donkey's humble views. I shall not insist that you agree with me. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र वचन. आप मुझ से सहमत होने के निर्बंध नहीं है। వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర అభిప్రాయాలు. నాతో ఏకీభవించమని మిమ్ములను వత్తిడి చేయను


About the degreedikhaopm hash tag: It is not clear why large number of tweeters who commented against Mr. Narendra Modi's M.A. qualification (treating it as fake without adequate proof), seem to belong to one religion as per their names. This ought not to have happened.

SOLUTION परिष्कार పరిష్కారం



PMIndia.gov.in website speaks greatly of transparency. Here are two quotes from the PMIndia's website:
"...Prime Minister Narendra Modi firmly believes that transparency and accountability are the two cornerstones of any pro-people government. Transparency and accountability not only connect the people closer to the government but also make them equal and integral part of the decision making process.

His strong resolve to transparency backed by the manner in which he put this commitment to practice indicates an era of open, transparent and people- centric government for the people of India.


It will be in the fitness of things, if PM's Office or the Election Commission places a xerox/scan of the Prime Minister's M.A. Politics Degree (or at least a Marks List, with details such as year of study, papers for which he appeared) on their website and make a public announcement so that the matter gets closed permanently.
The biggest unresolved question is whether even a single degree will be necessary for due discharge of a Prime Minister's duties. We have to see both sides of the coin.

PM will have dozens of advisors to counsel him on everything connected with Prime Minister's functions. When a PM has deep and wide knowledge of varioius subjects, he will be able to know whether his-her advisers were giving correct advice, whether they have the required competence or not. To a capable, diligent, energetic, knowledgeable, Prime Minister, -- bribetaking corrupt advisers/Members of committees and panels will hesitate to give false advice. They will be very careful, or else they will have to cut a sorry face before the PM, if PM detects their games.

A PM without such deep and wide insights into various subjects, cannot learn them instantaneously. Like Dhritarashtra, he has to affix his LTIs (using this word figuratively: A person not knowing a subject, if he-she affixes signature on a document, that signature will be as good as or as bad as a thumb impression) on the recommendations made by Advisors, and Committees. Even a genius requires extensive and intensive training, sometimes. For example, a person cannot sit in the cockpit of an Aircraft, and say "I am a genius. I can learn things instantaneously. There is nothing which will be beyond my comrehension. Even the subtlest things are within the reach of my understanding." . Then he-she cannot proceed to meddle with the buttons/keys/levers of an aircraft. His-her own life as well as the lives of passengers will be endangered.

Indians may not mind having even an illitersate PM, AS LONE AS HE-SHE IS HONEST, HARDWORKING AND EMPATHETIC TO POOR. But there seems to be some abhorrence against presenting fake degrees/qualifications (Yet to be proved in case of Mr. Modi). After all, we must keep in mind that obtaining an M.A. Politics degree is not a herculian task. It is a two year course. Every year there will be five papers. In each paper, ten essay type questions are given. Under the choice system, five questions are to be answered. In most Universities, it will be sufficient if a person gets 35 marks in each paper, and 40% on average of the five papers. That means, it will be sufficient if we know 1/3 of 1/2 of the total subject, i.e. 1/6th of the subject. There is no detention System. Hence, there is no hitch. I have a friend who has done three M.As. I have, myself, done in distant mode, two M.A.s after my retirement. In M.A. History I received a gold medal as a University topper. I am not writing this to boast. I wish to highlight, that as far as M.A.s are concerned, there should be no need for politicians to create fake degree certificates or buy degrees.

ABOUT PRESTIGIOUS FOREIGN COLLEGE DEGREES OF CELEBRITIES



U.K. Government seems to be drastically cutting the budgets of CAmbridge and Oxford Universities. Harvard also seem to be under some sort of pressure to make lucre, somehow. Worldwide, Universities seem to have become extremely crazy and hardpressed to earn moolah of their own, without seeking funds support from Governments. Hence, they seem to be hell-bent on maximising number of admissions, diluting requirements such as attendance, assignments, laboratory work, etc. etc. For diluting quantity and quality, subjects like Fashion Design, International Relations, (etc.) seem to come very handy. These degrees seem to be very much ornamental.

So, there will be no wonder, if large number of Indian celebrities flaunt foreign degrees from prestigious Colleges and Universities, who may covertly adopt two divergent policies of study discipline. For ordinary students, they will continue to insist on rigid discipline. For VIP and heavy donor students, official records may be created of fulfilling all the requirements for conferring a degree, without the student even attend the College / University classes or exams. Even if for political or other reasons, if some person/institution makes contacts them for verification/corroboration of the studies and the degree, they will confirm that the person has undergone all the rituals. This is a sort of gharana (ostentatious institutionalised) prostituion, in education arena. Nobody can correct these things. In Telugu language, there is a proverb : "kanceyE cEnu mEsina", the English meaning of which runs approx. "If the fence grazes the field instead of protecting it".

Question: Can't a genius like Calvin (Ref: Calvin and Hobbes Comic) think and act independently of his nannies, parents, and teachers?

Ans: Sometimes, the genius will be correct. Sometimes the advisors will be correct. Sometimes EXPERIENCE will win. Sometimes, NOVICES CAN TAKE ADVENTUROUS PATHS AND UNVEIL UNKNOWN methods and ways. We have to take into account a total picture of the problem and situation.

GIST



Simply because some foreign College/University is confirming, we should not convince ourself that Rahul's degree is genuine, and because Gujarat University / Delhi University are not coming forward, we should not declare that Mr. Modi's degrees are fake. In the ultimate analyses, their aptitude, diligence, efficiency, effectiveness, knowledge, organising, planning, skills, talent, hardwork, will decide their performance. Not degrees. At the most, this analysis will help us to assess how degrees are obtained from foreign Colleges / Universities and Indian Colleges /Universities.

Here is a link to IndiaTVnews.com, report dated 11.08.2015, titled: "Narendra Modi’s degree row – Much Ado about nothing"
Click to go to IndiaTVnews.com.

Observations of ybrao-a-donkey: This blog post of mine was made on 22.08.2015, without noticing the above IndiaTVnews report. Anyway, it will not make much difference in what I have written earlier. Reason: PMO may be technically justified in rejecting the RTI application of the Netizens. PMO may be legally right. But doesn't it have any ethical or moral obligations, to dispel the doubts in the minds of large number of its citizens? Besides, Netizens know that our beloved PM is very much publicity conscious, and twitter active (hyper-active???). Won't it, therefore, be in the fitness of things for the PMO to obtain the information sought by the Citizens at least now and make things very transparent, settle the issue FOR EVER? WHY keep things in suspended animation? Why does PMO want to hide behind a technicality, like some sundry petty Government Officials in some remote Taluk Headquarters in a backward State, who may not know the spirit (not only the letter of the law, but also the spirit of the law) of RTI legislation?

Now our learned TV News Channel has advised the anxious citizens to approach the Gujarat University or Delhi University. That probably, they will do, anyhow. Of course, the said Gujarat University, and Delhi University may find some other technical flaws in the RTI applications and reject again. Actually, the TV Channels and Print Media can also take some interest in this issue. Why they are hiding? They make lot of efforts about hundreds of things which are useless to the society, but profitable to them. Can't they make some genuine effort in ascertaining facts from the powers that be, and become the First Channel to publish it (may be genuine degree or some other degree, whatever it is, they should be facts)? Are they afraid that they cannot get the information? What stops them? What do they expect in return for their service?

568 No need to reduce Home loan interest rates गृह ऋणों के ब्याज रेट को कम करने के जरूरत नहीं है। గృహ ఋణాలపై వడ్డీ రేట్లను తగ్గించ వలసిన అవసరం లేదు.


Ms. Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chairperson, SBI, has rightly identified her six top priorities. There is no need to deviate from them, because India Inc. is pressing to cut lending rates. There is also no need to reduce interest rates on home loans, introducing such methods as teaser rates. Indian Public Sector Banks, having financed Home Loans at prices far higher than the intrinsic value of the underlying structures, now face a similar situation which American Banks and Investment Houses faced in 2008, when Sub-Prime Mortgage Loans became a problem in that country. As pointed out by Mr. Raghuram Rajan, RBI Governor, there is a need to cut the prices of Houses. According to news reports though in some cities like Mumbai and Delhi, Realtors have reduced prices, they have also reduced the size of the houses, and even the minimum fixtures. All the housesites in our Cities have gone into the hands of speculators, and builders are forced to purchase sites at very high prices and build flats thereon. Besides, there is the element of payment of bribes, for various purposes right from the conception stage to actual delivery to buyers. Consequently, home prices have gone beyond the paying capacities of even higher income group employees, not to speak of lower middle class, which has stopped thinking about owing a lifetime home. Till such a time, the Central and State Governments take truly effective steps to control house site prices and flat prices, it will be better if Banks exercise restraints in financing Home Loans.


Mrs. Nazma Heptullah is reported to have said as under. श्रीमति नज्मा हॆप्तुल्ला, मीडिया रिपोर्टों के अनुसार, यह कह दी। మీడియా రిపోర్టులననుసరించి, మైనారిటీ వ్యవహారాల కేంద్ర మంత్రిణి శ్రీమతి నజ్మా హెప్తుల్లా గారు ఇలా అన్నారు:-
People of all faiths are totally safe under Narendra Modi Administration.

श्री नरेंद्र मोदी के परिपालन में सभी धर्मों के जनता, संपूर्ण रीती में भद्र स्थित है।

శ్రీ నరేంద్ర మోడీ గారి పరిపాలనలో, అన్ని మతాల వారూ, సంపూర్ణ మైన భద్రతతో ఉన్నారు.


Let us allow it to go. At least, Ms. Nazma Heptulla, and her Minister-post are safe. हम इस बात को छोड देंगे। कम से कम, श्रीमति हॆप्तुल्लाजी, और उसकी मंत्री पद, भद्र है न। పోనిద్దాము. కనీసం హెప్తుల్లా గారైనా, భద్రంగా ఉన్నారు కదా. ఆమె పదవైనా భద్రంగా ఉన్నది కదా.

567 Indian Public Sector Bks should not be asked to cut lending rates. भारतीय प्रभुत्व बैंकों को ब्याज रेट्स कम करने के लिये दबाना नहीं चाहिए। భారతీయ ప్రభుత్వ రంగ బ్యాంకులను వడ్డీ రేట్లను తగ్గించమని వత్తిడి చేయటం ప్రమాదకరం.


RBI Governor, Mr. Raghuram Rajan, seems to be a courageous person, when news reports indicate that he is resisting constant continuous nudging + prodding by the Finance Minister & the India Inc. to cut lending rates. Simultaneously, we see him his nudging the Bank chairpersons to cut Bank lending rates, probably to show that he is pressing the Banks, but Banks are not heeding to RBI and the Govt. One gets an impression that he does not want to keep the blame for himself.

As a Finance expert, he may also be aware the present turmoil and tumult which the Indian Banks, particularly the Indian Public Sector Banks are going through. He may also be aware, that Indian Public Sector Banks operate with a very narrow spread between the interest rates paid on deposits and the interest rates charged on their lendings. He may also be conscious of the great difference between the roles expected to be played by Public Sector Banks and the Private Sector Banks. It is true that an RBI Governor is not expected to be a pugilistic punching bag for the Govt. and the Finance Minister. Nor is he expected to be an extremely empathetic agony aunt for the chair persons of Public Sector Banks. It is unfortunate that Finance Minister and Finance Ministry are not paying enough attention to the health of Public Sector Banks, which if they burst can cause irreparable damage to Indian Financial System. Providing funds to sick banks, is just one measure. There are numerous other things which deserve immediate attention from the Government, particularly the Credit Recovery Arrangements.

As the communications between the RBI Governor and the Finance Minister at top level are confidential, it is very difficult to gauge whether RBI is adequately representing the problems faced by PSBs to the Govt. of India. At least there is one reason to believe that he is conveying the pathetic problems of the Indian PSBs, as can be deduced from the willingness of Govt. of India to provide additional Capital to Public Sector Banks. This alone may not be adequate to say that everything is being represented upwards. Besides, the Government of India, may be either through RBI, or even directly under pressure from Institutions such as IMF, World Bank, Bank of England or Federal Reserve Bank (America's Central Bank), BIS (Bank for International Settlements) to increase the Capital(s) of Indian Public Sector Banks quoting some BASLE Convention or something else. Govt. of India seems to wilt relatively easily to international pressures, when compared to its understanding the domestic needs.

Some quotes dated 20th Aug 2015, at SBI Economics and Banking Conference, which are attributed to Mr. Raghuram Rajan, RBI Chief:
"...There is a need for banks to cut their lending rates anticipating the benefits which will be accruing from the central bank's rate cuts. ..."

"...I think there is something to be said for the fact of the slow pace of transmission, that some front loading by the banks themselves may be useful. ..."


Some other valuable quotes related to this subject attributed to the Banks:
"...A 75 bps cut translates into 40-45 bps cut in cost of funds for banks. You've already seen a 30 bps cut. Transmission will never be a one-is-to-one correlation with monetary policy rates. ...--Ms. Chanda Kochhar"
ybrao-a-donkey's humble views. I shall not insist that you agree with me. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र वचन. आप मुझ से सहमत होने के निर्बंध नहीं है। వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర అభిప్రాయాలు. నాతో ఏకీభవించమని మిమ్ములను వత్తిడి చేయను
1. Interest Rates prevailing in Indian Financial Markets where individuals, firms and Corporates lend to one another have mostly remained over 24% and rise even upto 120% p.a. depending upon security perceptions, need of the borrower, repayment program, etc. etc. Considering this hard reality, even a lending rate of 18% p.a. should not be considered as high. It is strange that India Inc. makes a hue and cry when Banks charge rates as low as 12% p.a. and demand large reductions in rates. It is really detestable that they ask for cuts in lending rates.

2. Indian Banks both Private Sector and PUblic Sector, have very poor credit appraisal, delivery, supervision, and recovery mechanisms. It is common for Corporates both industrial and non-industrial to divert borrowed funds for purposes other than the intended purposes. For this reason only we see hoarding of essential commodities, speculation in real estate, gold, silver, stock market speculations, cricket betting, with funds diverted from Bank borrowings. Once, the amounts leave the Corporates to their affiliates and subsidiaries or to the family members of the promoters, there is very little which Banks can do, to bring them back into the main stream of Finance. What the Corporates, both Indian and the MNCs operating in India, seem to want, apparently are cheap funds for short, medium and long term speculation. Else, except for those goods and products which have long production cycle, or stagnating markets, there should be no need to carry huge stocks, and pay interest to Banks. Corporates will not tell, but the interest amounts they pay, are for the moneys they block themselves in their hidden real estate or speculative investments, or in inter-corporate ventures. The best example we can get for this type of behaviors we can see from King Fisher, or the defunct Satyam Computers. In case of Satyam Computers, fortunately Mahindra came to the rescue of the Govt. and bought the I.T. dud. In case of King Fisher nobody knows what is happening and what is going to happen. I am also unable to recollect what happened to the dues of Indian Banks recoverable in case of Dabhol Power Project, Maharashtra.

I feel that it is high time for RBI Governor and the Finance Minister to ENABLE the Public Sector Banks to recover all their dues from the large Commercial and INdustrial borrowers. Court processes are cumbersome and time-consuming. Recalcitrant borrowers will use the time gap of nearly five years taken in courts for issuing decrees, to use the funds for their own purposes, though there is a procedure for attachment before judgements, it seldom works. Besides, attachments before judgements are intended as a sort of emergency method rather than as a recovery or loss minimisation proceedings.

Efforts made by banks with police help to forcibly take possession of secured assets where borrowers were non-coperative, were shunned by the court indicating that Banks cannot take law into their own possession. Even courts are unable to execute their own decrees, because they do not have staff or police of their own, and they depend on advocates appointed as Receivers/Assignees who ask Bank Staff to arrange transport and food for them. It is hightime for the Central Government and the respective State Government to constitute to post additional special Armed staff with crime and law & order powers, at, at least, Sub-Division Headquarters to help Banks in taking possession of securities, and their sale. Besides, RBI can ask Public Sector Banks, to set up a common Armed Security Force for enforcement and sale of security assets, by pooling funds and make Armed teams available to needy Banks when they need such services, and the Maintainer of the Security Force levy charges for providing the Security Enforcement and Recovery Armed Guard Services. Perhaps, it may be necessary to make some amendments to the Indian Penal Code, Civil Procedure Code, Criminal Procedure Code, Evidence Act, to make these things really work. Debt Recovery Tribunals alone cannot serve this monumental and monstrous task.
It is imperative that RBI treats and should treat Public Sector Banks differentially and preferentially from Private Sector Banks. This is simply because Private Banks and Public Sector Banks have different goals, different approaches, and different problems.

RBI should encourage Banks to mobilise their own lendable funds more and more from public and not depend on RBI's REPOS, by paying attractive interest rates to customers. Repos are intended to be emergency help, and not as primary lendable source of funds for Banks. Govt. or RBI or Banks or Industrialists should not have that impression that Banks will borrow from RBI at Repo Rates and add a measly margin for thier services.

If, under pressure from industrialists -> Govt. -> RBI, in case Banks reduce their lending rates and automatically, obviously, deposit interest rates, public will go elsewhere i.e. to unorganised sector or money-laundering institutions. Or they will buy gold or indulge in speculation. Not reducing interest rates on Bank deposits is particularly important, considering that Govt. is levying income tax on meagre interest which Banks pay on Bank deposits and insisting on TDS on Bank Deposits which are already low-yield investments owing to Deposit interest rates not matching with inflation.

566 Shifting CApital from Amaravati will be better than blunt land acquisition or abandoning land acquition


The goals/aims of Mr. Pawan Kalyan in requesting TDP Government not to use Land Acquisition Act against reluctant farmers , are not known. Actually, he should have objected to the Land Pooling Scheme, and the methods used in obtaining the consent(s) of the farmers for LPS, with a lurking threat of use of Land Acquisition if they do not yield to LPS. He should also have opposed to the manner in which LPS farmers were tempted by making them to believe that their 1000 yards will become gold. Mr. Pawan Kalyan may be knowing that the whole World Class Rajadhani Construction is a sell-out to Singapore and Japan.
"...I request TDP government not to use ‘Land acquisition act’ to procure the remaining land for AP capital and wish it will amicably settle the issue. ..."

'... నేను టీడీపీ ప్రభుత్వాన్ని, ఆంధ్ర ప్రదేశ్ రాజధానికి మిగిలిన భూమిని సేకరించటం కొరకు, భూసేకరణ చట్టాన్ని వాడద్దని విజ్ఞప్తి చేస్తున్నాను. సమస్యను సామరస్యపూర్వకంగా పరిష్కరించుకోవాలని కోరుతున్నాను....'

" तॆलुगु देशं सर्कार से मेरा प्रार्धना यह है कि, आंध्र प्रदेश के राजधानी के लिये शेष आवश्यक भूमी को सेकरण करने के लिये, वें भू सेकरण अधिनियम को लागू नहीं की जाय। और समस्या को सामरस्य पूर्वक ढंग में परिष्कार करने को मैं चाहता हूँ। ..."


Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu is reported to have told Reporters on 12th Aug. 2015, Wednesday, as under:-
"...We will go ahead with the Land Acquisition Act. It should not be a problem as very few farmers have to give their consent. Hardly 10 per cent of the farmers have not given consent and will go ahead with the Land Acquisition Act of 2013. ..." " हम भू सेकरण अधिनियम से आगे जायेंगे। यह एक समस्या नहीं बनेगा, क्यों कि, बहुत कम किसानों अपने सहमत देने का है। दस प्रतिशत किसान से कम, अपने सहमत नहीं दिया। और (हम) भू सेकरण अधिनियम २०१३ से आगे जायेंगे। ..." " మేము భూసేకరణ చట్టంతో ముందుకు వెళ్తాము. ఇది ఎందుకు సమస్య అవదంటే, ఇంకా చాలా కొద్దిమంది రైతులే తమ అనుమతిని ఇవ్వ వలసి ఉన్నది. కేవలం పది శాతం కన్నా తక్కువ మంది రైతులు తమ సమ్మతిని ఇవ్వలేదు. మేము భూసేకరణ చట్టం 2013ను అమలు తో ముందుకు వెళ్తాము...."


ybrao-a-donkey's humble views. You need not agree with me. You have every right to express your views and criticise me. Welcome. वैबीराव गधे के विनम्र राय। आप मुझ से सहमत होने के निर्बंध नहीं है। आप को अपने अभिप्रायों को व्यक्त करने के और मुझे खुरदा पकडने के सभी हक हैं। स्वागत. వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర వ్యాఖ్య. మీరు నాతో ఏకీభవించవలసిన నిర్బంధం లేదు. మీ అభిప్రాయాలను వ్యక్తం చేసే స్వేఛ్ఛ, నన్ను విమర్శించే అన్ని హక్కులు మీకున్నాయి. స్వాగతం.




1. Both Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu and Mr. Pawan Kalyan do not appear to be correct.

Reason for Mr. Pawan Kalyan, not being correct: Nearly 80% of the farmers have already been coerced (forced with the threat of impending land acquisition) to join the Land Pooling Scheme. Everybody knows that farmers have not joined LPS voluntarily, except those who were tempted by greed, when Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu promised them that the 1000 yards per acre land they will get, shall become precious gold. It is like the religious conversions made during the Bahmany, Nizamshahi, Tughlack-Khilji, Mughal, and the British rule. People were either threatened or tempted. Whatever it be, large number of farmers have already surrendered their lands. Not taking over the remaining required land under L.A. Act, will lead to inequal treatment. While those who joined the Scheme get 1000 sqyds per acre, those who do not join the LPS will get entire acre of their land which they will commercially exploit. That means those who reluctant/recalcitrant will get four times more benefits than those who acceded to the Govt's requests.

Allowing the reluctant/recalcitrant farmers will create inequalities worse than the first two options.

1. Bluntly take over the remaining land under L.A. Act, if necessary by applying force.

This is a sort of equality. (I am not supporting this). Forcible taking over may lead to some violence either from farmers or from the State, such as Firings. In the process, Andhra Pradesh will fail to learn lessons from what happened in Nandigav and Singoor in West Bengal. History will repeat. The 10% farmers who remaining (as per Mr. Naidu's estimate) are now going to become hardnuts to crack. This, Messrs. Naidu, Pulla Rao, Narayana & Co. may have to keep in mind, on the basis of a simple logic that these 10% farmers have not yielded to the Government, in spite of repeated threats of land acquisition, and extension of the schemes from time to time.

2. Cancelling the Amaravati Rajadhani Scheme.

Return the LPS land to the farmers. Shift the Capital to some other place where enough Forest/Govt. land is available, while ensuring that land speculation and builder mafia will not shift there. This is the best option, which I support.

Reasons: Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu by repeatedly declaring that he would build a World Class Capital created great undeserving hopes in people to become super-rich in the shortest time they can dream off. He has also welcomed the land-speculation and builder mafia to enter Capital Region and monopolise the ALL THE LAND surrounding the Seed Capital land. Lands upto Nandigama Muktyala (Telangana border) in Krishna District, Krosur Atchampeta in Guntur District have been diverted from agariculture to fallow plots in which we can see only some boundary stones. The buyers of all these lands neither build houses there nor sell them to poor and middle classes to enable them to build their own homes. Nor will the speculating owners/builders reconvert the land into agriculture or at least some small gardens. They will be lying vacant for another five decades, with the exception of those which are immediately-roadside. Consequently, for erecting small scale industries or medium sized industries also, land will not be available.

If Mr. Naidu Narayana Pulla Rao & Co. believe that all the farmers have joined LPS voluntarily, then they will be indulging in self-deception. (आत्म-वंचन ఆత్మ వంచన). It is a different that politicians may not have souls (AtmAs) or worry about "vancanAs (deceptions). People who have such worries will not join politics.

3. VIA MEDIA PROPOSAL

If the Govt. wants takes cancellation of Amaravati Rajadhani Scheme, and if the Govt. does not want to displease Mr. Pawan Kalyan , can adopt the following procedure:

In case of LPS okay farmers, Govt. can take two types of consent letters. From those who want to Govt. handing over their land to private Corporates for Development, they can give their consent. Those LPS okay farmers, who want that Govt. should use their land only for genuine GOVT. PURPOSE without handing over the land to anybody either on lease or on allotment, they can give a restricted consent letter. These lands Govt. will have to develop with State Funds and use for genuine public purposes such as Govt. Hospitals, Govt. Schools, Colleges, Universities, Municipal-Panchayat-Roads-State-and National Highways.

In case of LPS not okay- farmers, Govt. can issue orders stopping registrations. It can permit the farmers to continue to cultivate their lands as long as they wish to. If they want to sell the lands, they should sell their lands to Govt. at rates fixed by the Govt., and if the Govt. does not want to buy, Govt. can allow their sale only to legitimate agriculturists who will actually till the land. Thus the desire of the farmers to save their ancestral lands will be fulfilled. Mr. Pawan Kalyan can also be satisfied. Whenever Govt. purchases these lands from farmers, it should use only for genuine public purposes, and should not lease them or allot them to private parties for any purpose.

TAIL PIECE पुछ्छल तारा తోక చుక్క There are news reports that AP Government has agreed 50% cost of doubling the Guntur Guntakal RAilway line. This seem to be foolish.

Reasons: 1. Central Govt. in a butcherlike fashion, divided the State of Andhra Pradesh, quite unilaterally. It will, therefore, be the duty of the Central Government to bear the entire cost of doubling the Guntur Guntakal line. In Bihar, Bengal, Uttar Pradesh States the respective Governments are not bearing 50% costs.

2. If the Capital of A.P. itself is located on the Guntur-Guntakal line, at a place like Donakonda, Vinukonda, Nandyal, Atmakur (Kurnool Dt.) it might have forced the Central Govt. to take up the doubling the Guntur Guntakal Rail line on its own. Establishing the Capital between two crowded cities of Guntur and Vijayawada which are well-connected with Railways, and by asking for AP Express to start at Vijayawada, Naidu Government has jeopardised the cause of Guntur-Guntakal line.

Correct route of AP Express ought to have been (Bangalore)Hindupur-Guntakal-Dronachalam-Nallamala Ghats-Vinukonda-Narasaraopet-Guntur-Vijayawada-Eluru-Rajahmundry-Visakhapatnam-Vizianagaram-RAigadh, Raipur etc. etc. By following this route, we could have had the AP Express to serve as a spinal card for the Andhra Pradesh State. We could also have avoided the Telangana connection by eliminating Manchiryal and Kajipet, even Secunderabad. The new AP Express would have helped the backward States like Orissa, Chattisgadh, Madhya Pradesh, probably U.P. It would have reduced the load on Delhi-Kajipet-Vijayawada GT line. If trains are started on this route to benefit Tamil Nadu, they will run through Vijayawada, Tenali anyway.

Question: You are always writing about Marxism (or Total Socialism). It is an impossible dream. Make some suggestions for quick development of A.P. and employent creation, within the FRAME-WORK OF CAPITALISM.

Marxism (Total Capitalism) will not be an impossible dream. However, as desired, we shall examine the ways and means of quick development and employment generation within the framework of CApitalism, in the next blog post.

565 Does the Governor of Residual Andhra Pradesh talk to the Governor of Telangana? क्या शेषांध्र प्रदेश राज्य के राज्यपाल, तॆलगाण राज्यपाल से बात किया या नहींं ? శేషాంధ్ర ప్రదేశ్ గవర్నర్ గారు, తెలంగాణ గవర్నర్ తో మాట్లాడారా లేదా ?


When the United Andhra Pradesh State was divided, the Central Government appointed a common Governor for both the States of Residual Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The objective behind having a common Governor appears to be that he will co-ordinate and solve the nascent problems arising from a forced Caesarian surgery performed both by the top surgeons of the BJP and the Congress Parties, with the co-operation of Regional Parties who enjoyed to remain as mute spectators to the butchery in Lok Sabha.

Unfortunately, the common Governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana States, Mr. Narasimhan, disappointed the people of the State of Andhra Pradesh, by remaining a silent spectator to the nefarious activities of the TRS Party leaders, Cabinet and the Telangana State Bureaucrats, under servitude to the KCR & Co. ie. the family of K. Chandrasekhara Rao, his son Shri K. Tarakarama Rao, his nephew Shri Harish Rao, (all the three Ministers in Telangana) and Ms. Kavitha, M.P., and daughter of Shri KCR.

अचानक, आंध्र प्रदेश के राज्य पाल श्री नरसिंहन महोदय, आंध्र प्रदेश के जनता को रक्षण करने में विफल हो गये और लोगों को निराश दिये। टीआरऎस् पार्टी के, तॆलंगाणा राज्य के मुख्यमंत्री, मंत्रिवर्ग, उनके दासीभूत अधिकारी सब के अनुचित कार्यों को आंध्र प्रदेश राज्य पाल मूक और हक्का-बक्का रह गये। इस कारण से तॆलंगाणा के मुख्यमंत्री, मंत्रिवर्ग, उनके दासीभूत अधिकारीयों को और ज्यादा हिम्मत मिल गया, गवर्नर को वे अपने आदमी समझने लगे, और शोचने लगे कि अपने कार्यो को उचित या अनुचित, राज्यपाल साहॆब को पता चलने के बाद भी वे खामोश रहेगा। इसमें गुंजाइश नहीं है कि, राज्यपाल दोनों राज्यों के मध्य तटस्थ ही रहना चाहिए। लेकिन, यह भी जरूरत है कि, जब एक राज्य दूसरे राज्य को तंग कर रहे है, तब वें उस उत्पीडन को कम करने के लिये, बाधित राज्य को उपशणन दिलाने के लिये, और न्याय स्थापन करने के लिये कोशिश करना चाहिए। बाधितों को ' चाहे तो आप अदालत के पास जाइये, ' ऐसे बात वे नहीं कहना चाहिए। अदालत को जाने के विषय बाधितों को मालूम है । लेकिन वह काम हर रोज वें नहीं कर सकते। रोज अदालत आना, न्याय स्थान भी उचित नहीं मानेगा। कोर्ट को जाना , अवश्य होगा जब जरूरत है तब, लेकिन वह लास्ट रिसार्ट, आखरी परिष्कार, पहली परिष्कार नहीं होगा।

Andhra Pradesh is experiencing extreme financial difficulties because all the VAT is remitted in Hyderabad, by Corporates who have their trading branches, dealers and distributors in both the States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. This problem is likely to continue for another 5/10 years, till the 23 District floating population of HYderabad City gets reduced to 13 District floating population, till the semi wholesale and retail dealers of RAP start going to their new market Distribution point City, may be Vijayawada, till all the Corporates open their State level Distribution Offices in Vijayawada, Kurnool/Tirupati or Visakhapatnam. Actually the A.P. Bifurcation Act 2014 should have provided for a share in VAT collected at Hyderabad, to Residual A.P. for at least five years. The blind top leaders of Congress and BJP who DROVE THE DIVISION PROCESS IN LOK SABHA did not bother about this requirement. A.P. Governor Mr. Narasimhan should have brought this to the notice of the Central Government and tried his best to get some funds support for AP State from the Centre. The Governor of A.P. does not appear to have DONE anything about this, though he may be drawing his salary and Raj Bhavan expenses from both the States.

PEOPLE of Residual Andhra Pradesh will not like to blame the Governor for omissions and commissions, provided he has done and is doing what MUST BE DONE. If he has done, what must have been done, we welcome our State's Governor to keep details of his efforts on Rajbhavan Website.

Telangana Government has unilaterally relieved many employees in APGENCO, refusing to pay their salaries, and pushing them into a triSanku-Heaven. Governor should have intervened, but he has not interevened, apparently.

There are numerous such instances, where Governor of Andhra Pradesh failed to discharge his duties, conscientiously. One such latest example is, the Chief Secretary of Telangana State insulted a D.I.G. working in an Institution common to both the States. The Telangana State unilaterally changed the name of the common Police Training Police Academy (APPA).

Potti Sriramulu Telugu University, Hyderabad, till alternative final division arrangements are made has a duty to support its branches in Residual Andhra Pradesh. But it is refusing. Governor again seems to prefer remain dumb or deaf.

If Governor has felt that he cannot do justice to both the States (after exhausting all his avenues to do justice), then his option would have been to resign AS GOVERNOR FOR ONE STATE, IE. THE BELEAGURED STATE OF ANDHRA PRADESH. By doing that he would have earned great respect from people, and also retained his self-respect in tact, though he might have been branded as inefficient and inflexible.

564 Will Mr. Narendra Modi be greater than Bali, Karna, Sibi, Chandra and dadhIci? क्या श्री नरेंद्र मोदी महोदय बली, कर्ण, शिबी, चंद्र और दधीची से महानु होगा శ్రీ నరేంద్రమోడీ వారు బలి, కర్ణుడు, శబి, చంద్రుడు, దధీచి అందరి కంటే గొప్ప దాతగా మారతారా?


We shall hope that People of Residual Andhra Pradesh will not develop envy or hatred towards Biharis, for their fortune in getting Rs. 125,000 crore (Rs. 1.25 trillion) largesse from Shri Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, in the form of special packages. Probably that bribe may be enough to wean away the the voting sheep of Bihar from the flocks of Lalu and Nitish. Or else, how to interpret this bountiful dole or bakshis from Mr. Narendra Modi? Earlier, on 25th July 2015, at the Parivartan Ralley Muzaffarpur, Bihar, he offered only Rs. 50,000 crore (1/2 trillion Rupees).

Rulers of all parties and all Governments in India offering moneys and gadgets to voters by spending State Funds just before the notification of elections, is not NEW. In fact, Congress has perfected this art. Congress had done it, even during Indira Gandhi's reign. Then, at least some people expected Mr. Modi to be different from the Congress Rulers. But, unfortunately, Modi Chakravarti has belied all the expectations of his well-wishers and worshippers.

If Modi has the generosity to offer Rs. 1.25 trillion to Bihar, how mush he is going to offer to Bengal , when its elections will be due next year? Rs. 3 trillion? Are Biharis blue-eyed boys and Andhras beggars? क्या बीहारियों सौभाग्यशाली और शेष आंध्र भिखारी? బీహారీలు సౌభాగ్యశాలులు మరియు శేషాంధ్రులు బికారీలా?

Prosody used in this verse: This verse is in the Telugu prosody called sIsam. A sIsam verse comes with four LONG feet (double length) of its own. It will also be supported by a lighter verse of 4 feet of shorter length called tETa gIti or anther verse called ATa veladi (MEANING: DANCING DAMSEL. Actually the word "veladi" refers to a girl who comes for a price (vela=price). But that meaning is no longer valid. Hence Dancing Damsel).

This particular sIsam (I do not know the meaning of sIsam. Popular meanings such as a glass bottle, lead metal, do not match the meaning for a meter of a verse. Hence this ignorance) has a tETa gIti tail. This sIsam verse has tETA gIti (meaning of tETa gITI: Crystal clear verse) as its supplement.

Approximate English gist. This verse is from the second Chapter (dvitIyA ASvAsam) of 17th Century's Telugu poet cEmakUra venkaTa kavi's work "vijaya vilAsam". The poet received his patronage from a South Indian king by name Achyuta rAya raghunAtha nAyaka. As per the common custom of poetic yore of his days, Cemakura Venkata Kavi was indulging in hyperbolic praise of his patron. The poet is comparing his patron to great charity donors of Indian Mythology: 1. Emperor Bali. 2. Mahabharata king Karna (King of Anga and , close friend of duryOdhana). 3. Emperor Sibi. 4. Moon. According to the poet, all these people pale into insignificance when compared to the generosity of King Achuyata Raya.

Bali risked his kingdom and life, by promising and fulfilling his promise of giving three feet of land to a brAhmana dwarf boy called VAmana (vishNu in his vAmana incarnation). Here poet venkaTa kavi says that Bali gave just what was asked by vAmana and not more. What is the greatness in giving what the seeker asks? More ought to have been counter-offered.

Arka means sun. sUti means son. Arka sUti means Sun's son i.e. King Karna. Karna has great reputation for his charitable dispensation. Arjuna's father Indra went to Karna and asked him for his chest-armour covering and ear rings (with which Karna was believed to have been born with). Karna gave them away, by severing them form his body with a sword, in spite of knowing that, the extreme charity will spell his doom, and in spite of fore-warning by his father Sun God. Poet Venkata Kavi says that Karna's charity was just giving whatever comes to his mind at a particularl time. He does not give to the extent that the seekers' desires are full extinguished.

Emperor Sibi was approached by Chief of Demy Gods- Indra, and the Fire God Agni. Indra was disguised as a falcon. Fire God was disguised as a pigeon. Falcon was chasing the pigeon. Both reach Sibi, in such a manner that Sibi was tempted to offer to save the pigeon. In return for foregoing his food i.e. the pigeon, the falcon asked for the own flesh of Sibi himself. Then a balance was brought, and Sibi went on cutting his flesh and putting in one pan of the balance, while in the second pan, the pigeon stood, to facilitate weighin. Finally Sibi's charity won. The poet is in order to exaggerate the largess of Achyuta Raghunatha Raya, has tried to belittle the munificence of Sibi. The poet says that Sibi offered his flesh, matching only to the weight of the pigoen. Nothing more. He didn't offer all of his flesh.

The fourth foot of the SIsam verse refes to the Moon God. amrita= nectar. karuDu=one who makes, or one whose rays are nectarlike, i.e. moonlight. Moon God does not shower moonlight everyday. He showers only on some days, during some parts of the night. Timings and Quantities are limited, BUT not boundless.

The four line supplementary verse declares Achyuta Raghunatha Raya as peerless and unrivaled.

ybrao-a-donkey's humble views. I shall not insist that you agree with me. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र वचन. आप मुझ से सहमत होने के निर्बंध नहीं है। వైబీరావు గాడిద వినమ్ర అభిప్రాయాలు. నాతో ఏకీభవించమని మిమ్ములను వత్తిడి చేయను

This poet Shri Chemakura Venkata Kavi, forgot to mention about the Great Sage dadhIchi who gave away his bones to Demy-Gods to enable Indra obtain his Vajra weapon from it. ఈ మహాకవి శ్రీ చేమకూర వెంకట కవి గారు, దధీచి మహాముని గురించి వ్రాయటం మర్చి పోయినట్లున్నారు. దధీచి మహాముని, ఇంద్రుడికి వజ్రాయుధం తయారుచేసుకోటానికి తన ఎముకలనే దానం చేశాడు. తన దేహాన్ని త్యజించి తన ఎముకలనే ఇచ్చేశాడు. శ్రీరఘునాథ నాయక అచ్యుత రాయలు ఆపని చేయలేడు కాబట్టి, వేంకటకవి వదిలేసి ఉండచ్చు. కానీ మన నరేంద్రమోడీగారు బీహార్ (ఆయన మాటలలలో బీమారూ అంటే రోగిష్ఠి అముకుంటాను) ప్రజలకోసం తన ఎముకలను కూడ ఇచ్చేస్తారేమో. ఈవిషయం శ్రీ వంకయ్యనాయుడు గారో లేక శ్రీ అమీత్ షా గారో చెప్పాలి.
We should now ask our Urban Development and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mr. Muppavarapu Venkaiah Naidu, to describe the immeasurable chivalric magnanimity of Mr. Narendra Modi. Shri Venkaiah Naidu has great reputation as a camatkAri and coiner-of-words. We shall wait and see.  ఇపుడు మనం మన పట్టణాభివృధ్ధి మరియు పార్లమెంటరీ వ్యవహారాల మంత్రి, శ్రీ వెంకయ్యనాయుడు గారిని శ్రీ నరేంద్రమోడీ గారి

Mr. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu is waitiing with a begging bowl. So far, he could not get a suitable date of appointment with Mr. Narendra Modi. PMO is dilly-dallying. When the meet materialises, how much this beggar will ask and that benefactor will give, we shall wait and see. How much will Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu ask? How much will Modi give? Will Modi condescend down to give an appointment to Babu? There will be no elections in Residual Andhra Pradesh till 2019.

How much did Lalu and Nitish ask Mr. Narendra Modi, for Bihar? Is Mr. Modi's lofty heroic splurge voluntary? श्री लालू और नितीष महाशय कितने करोड पूछे, और श्री मोडी महाशय कितने लाख करोड दिये? శ్రీ లాలూ గారు, శ్రీ నితీష్ గారు ఎంత అడిగారు, మోడీగారు ఎంత ఇచ్చారు. అడగకుండానే బిందెలతో వర్షించారా?

These are only promises. Though the Mr. Modi has not promised any billions or trillions of the people of Andhra before the 2014 elections, he had made tall promises. But, nothing materialised. Will something really materialise for the people of Bihar?

563 Will all future PCs and Laptops sold in India will have only Windows? Are they going to lock the machines? भारत में आगे बेचने वाले पीसी और लापटापों में सिर्फ विंडोस १० ही रहेगा. భారత్ లో భవిష్యత్ లో అమ్మే అన్ని కంప్యూటర్ లలో విండోస్ మాత్రమే ఉండేలా లాక్ చేస్తారా. తస్మాత్ జాగ్రత్త


Mr. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, in his 15th August 2015 Independence Day Speech, wanted every youth from Residual Andhra Pradesh to become some Satyam Nadendla (Microsoft CEO) or some Sundar Pichai (Google CEO). Well, as Chief Minister, he has every right and justification to advise captive audience and school children imprisoned in the Parade Ground for the Independence Day Celebrations. As common citizens, we too have some rights to advise Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, whether he listens to them or not.

శ్రీ నారా చంద్రబాబు నాయుడుగారు, తన 15వ ఆగస్టు 2015 స్వాతంత్ర్య దినోత్సవ ప్రసంగంలో, శేషాంధ్ర ప్రదేశ్ లోని ప్రతి యువతీయువకుడు ఒక శ్రీ సత్యం నాదెండ్ల (మైక్రోసాఫ్ట్ సీయీవో) లాగానో, లేక ఒక శ్రీ సుందర్ పిచాయ్ (గూగిల్ సీయీవో) గారిలాగానో తయారవాలని కోరుకున్నారు. భళి భళీ, ముఖ్యమంత్రిగా వారు తమ చేతికి చిక్కిన శ్రోతలను, ప్రేక్షకులను, పెరేడ్ గ్రౌండ్ లో బంధించ బడిన బాల బాలికలకు సలహాలిచ్చేందుకు అధికారం, హక్కు కలిగి ఉన్నారు. అలాగే, సామాన్య పౌరులమైన మాకు కూడ, శ్రీ చంద్రబాబు నాయుడు గారు చిక్కకపోయినా, ఏపేరేడ్ గ్రేౌండ్ లో బంధించబడక పోయినప్పటికీ, శ్రీ వారు విన్నప్పటికీ, వినకపోయినప్పటికీ, వారికి సలహాలు ఇచ్చే హక్కు తప్పక ఉంటుంది.

Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu should be wary with Bosses and Executives of Foreign Corporates who will be meeting him for various purposes which include getting some land allotted at throwaway prices or sell some hardware-software-trash to Government of Andhra Pradesh (In case of Mr. Narendra Modi, the Government of India) . We cannot find fault with the Foreign Corporates, Bosses, Executives, Ambassadors and Consuls because i is their duty, and for that they are paid fat sums.

శ్రీ చంద్రబాబు నాయుడు గారు విదేశీ కార్పోరేట్ల యజమానులు, ఉన్నత అధికారులు, తమను వివిధ అవసరాల కొరకు కలిసినపుడు (చవకగా భూములు కొట్టెయటం, ప్రభుత్వానికి పనికిరాని వస్తువులను అధిక ధరలకు అంటగట్టటం మొదలగు అవసరాలు) , ఎంతో జాగ్రత్తగా వ్యవహరించాల్సి ఉంటుంది. ఈ జాగ్రత్తలతో వ్యవహరించటం అనేది, సెల్ఫీ స్పెషలిస్టుగా పేరు గాంచిన మన గౌరవనీయ ప్రధాన మంత్రిగారికి కూడ వర్తిస్తుందని వేరే వ్రాయనవసరం లేదు. అయితే ఈ విషయంలో మనం విదేశీ కార్పోరేట్ల బాసులను, ఉన్నతాధికారులను, రాయబారులను , కాన్సల్స్ ను తప్పు పట్ట నవసరం లేదు. ఎందుకంటే, వారి వస్తువులు, సేవల మార్కెటింగ్ కొరకు వారు భారీగా చెల్లింపులు చేయబడుతున్నారు, కాబట్టి వారి మార్కెటింగ్ విధులను వారు సక్రమంగా, కొంతమేరకు అత్యుత్సాహంగా నిర్వర్తిస్తున్నట్లే.

Mr. Bill Gates might have made Mr. Satyam Nadendla as an important boss in the Microsoft Empire, because after slow down in China, Mr. Gates may be viewing India as the most important market to fish in. If Indian Executives are appointed, it will be easier for the Foreign Corporates to influence the decision-makers of purchases and allotments in India, through the affinity tools of language, religion, caste, region, what not. Bribing politicians through Indian politicians, and Indian subsidiaries will also be easier, because the communication bridges and channels can be opened up.

శ్రీ బిల్ గేట్స్ గారు, శ్రీ సత్యం నాదెండ్లను మైక్రోసాఫ్ట్ సీయీవో గా చేయటంలో లక్ష్యం మనం గుర్తించటం అవసరం. ఆపరేటింగ్ సిస్టం లు, మరియు బ్రౌజర్ల మార్కెట్ లలో మైక్రోసాఫ్ట్ తన వాటాను కోల్పోతున్న విషయం తెలిసినదే. చైనాలో కూడ స్లో డౌన్ మొదలయింది కాబట్టి, (అమెరికా, యూరప్ లు ఇప్పటికే సంతృప్తావస్తకు చేరుకున్నాయి.), 120 కోట్లమంది భారతీయులు, అందులోను అధిక సంఖ్యాకులు ఇంగ్లీష్ తెలిసి సోషల్ నెట్ వర్కింగ్ వెబ్ సైట్ల దురద కలిగి ఉండటం వల్ల, భారత్ పాశ్చాత్య హార్డ్ వేర్, సాఫ్ట్ వేర్ కంపెనీల కన్నిటికీ, ఒక ఆశా దీపంగా మారింది. అంతే కాదు, భారత్ దగ్గర రైతుల దగ్గర గుంజుకున్న భూములను సెజ్ లు పేర్లతో కార్పోరేట్లకు పంద్యారం చేయటం ద్వారా సేకరించిన విదేశీ పెట్టుబడుల విదేశ మారక నిధులు మూలుగుతున్నాయనలేం కానీ, భారీగానే ఉన్నాయి. వీటితో కంప్యూటర్ హార్డ్ వేర్లను, సాఫ్ట్ వేర్లను, మొబైళ్ళను కొనిపించటం, విదేశీ కార్పోరేట్లకు ఒక ఆకర్షణగా మారింది అనేది గమనార్హం. ఇలాటిదే ఫోర్డ్, బీఎమ్ డబ్ల్యూ, మెర్సిడెజ్ బెంజ్, ఆదీ, వంటి ఖరీదైన కార్లకు కూడ వర్తిస్తుంది. ఈపనులకు భారతీయ ఎగ్జిక్యూటివ్ లు, సీఈవోలు సహాయం ఉంటే, భాష, మతం, కులం, ప్రాంతం, వంటి అంశాల సహాయంతో, కొనుగోలు నిర్ణయాలు తీసుకునే అధికారులను ప్రభావితం చేయటం తేలికవుతుంది. ఎక్కడైనా లంచాలు, కిక్ బ్యాక్ లు ఇవ్వాల్సి వస్తే, భారతీయ ఎగ్జిక్యూటివ్ ల సహాయం ఉంటే, కాగల కార్యం గంధర్వులు తీర్చినట్లవుతుంది.

Residual Andhra Pradesh Government is in a process of setting up its new Capital at Amaravati (Vijayavada-Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri Area). In the process it may have to purchase thousands of Desktop PCs as hardware fitted with Windows 10 OS of Microsoft. Everybody knows that Windows OS is priced. It is also vulnerable to Computer viruses. For a poor country like India, and for a poor State like Residual Andhra Pradesh, the natural choice ought to have been Open Source Operating Systems based on Linux, such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, etc. which are free (both costwise and disclosure of source codewise).

శేష్ ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్, తన కొత్త రాజధానిని అమరావతి (విజయవాడ గుంటూరు తెనాలి మంగళగిరి తుళ్ళూరు) ప్రాంతంలో ప్రపంచ స్థాయిలో (అదేమిటో, లేని ఆదేవుడికే తెలియాలి) (What is the definition of world level, only the non-existing God should know)నెలకొల్పుతామని రోజూ ఊదర కొట్టటం మనకు తెలిసిన విషయమే. ఈసందర్భంగా మంత్రులు, శాసన సభ్యులు, అధికారులు, ఉద్యోగులకోసం, కొన్ని వేల లేక కొన్ని లక్షల పీసీలను, లాప్ టాప్ లను, టాబ్ లను, స్మార్ట్ ఫోన్ లను, కొన్ని వందల లేక వేల కోట్లు వ్యయం చేసి కొనాల్సి రావచ్చు.

Had the Government of India, and the Governments of all the States in India, purchased blank computers with no operating system and installed Open Source and FREE (no need to buy) OS's , on every Computer they would have saved at least Rs. 20,000/-. (Note this includes cost of purchasing not only Windows, but also MS Office, Photoshop, Adobe etc.). Besides, as Open Source Linuxbased OSs are 99.99% free from Computer viruses, the Computers would have lasted long (extended life). All this would have saved billions of Rs., Dollars and Euros.

Here is a link to a very comprehensive report and review of the nefarious ways in which Microsoft is trying to monopolise the Computer Markets for Windows OS. The technique, ostensibly canvassed by it is protecting the computers through a "bootloader lock" in Computer Bios(es), which prevents installation of other Operating Systems. Though externally Microsoft says that OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers i.e. Dell, HP, Lenovo, et al.) will be free to either switch off or switch on the lock while designing their machines, there is always a possibility that Microsoft may bring pressure on the Computer Manufacturers to remove the toggles altogether, or keep the locks unopenable.

Theoretically, though Microsoft is promising to sign the certificates of Canonical (Ubuntu) and Fedora OSes, to facilitate their installation along with Windows, there is a possibility that Microsoft may armtwist them (Ubuntu and Fedora) to sell their OSs instead of distributing them freely. Besides, apart from Ubuntu and Fedora, there are hundreds of REALLY FREE (BOTH COSTWISE AND OPEN SOURCEWISE) Linux Open Source Operating Systems such as Debian, Porteau for which Microsoft's security lock will not allow installation.

Are we not living in a Free World? What Microsoft is trying to do is, it is trying not only to BLOCK WINDOWS SOFTWARE BY PRICING IT HIGHLY, but also it is LOCKING THE COMPUTER HARDWARE. If Microsoft wants to improve its market share it should compete with better quality products and lower prices. Not by bringing pressure on Computer manufacturers to lock the hardware to prevent installation of FREE OS's.

It should be the buyer's prerogative to decide which OS is to be installed on his PC, laptop, tablet, mobile. Microsoft cannot impose its OS's on countries, people and persons, through deceptive methods.

As politicians, Mr. Narendra Modi and Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu may not have enough inclinations, skills and time to go into the technicalities. But they should keep their eyes open and foresee the dangers involved in keeping their heads into the mouths of lions.

This article has received more than 400 comments from the netizens. I wish that every person, Institution, Government Organisation, I.A.S. -I.P.S. Officer who take purchase decisions relating to Computer systems should study this particular analysis made by Mr. Chris Hoffman.

There are similar other articles all over the Net, for which Microsoft does not and WILL NOT HAVE ANY REPLY.




The tactic which Microsoft is likely to use for monopolising the Indian and Andhra Pradesh Markets, is going to be influencing through Indians, may be its own executives, or Microsoft India Subsidiaries, other Marketing Firms. Shri Bhaskar Pramanik, the top Executive of Microsoft India has recently met Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu. They have also promised some free Wifi in Srikakulam District by utilising unused TV Spectrum. Externally it appears to be a Good Samaritan Service, but unfortunately it is not. It is like throwing away a dime, to knock away some dollars.

It is hightime that Governments of all Indian States, and Government of India shift to Open Source Operating Systems. Even Safetywise, they are more secure when compared to Windows, and less aminable to hacking. Reason: Windows OS boots as Root (administrator of the machine). Consequently, for installation of malicious software downloaded from internet, when employees and Officers visit porno websites, no password will be asked, and installation will take place automatically as the administrator is on the machine. In case of Linux and other Open Source Systems based on Linux, for installation of any software whether genuine or malicious, an Administrator's password (Root password called sudo's password) will be required, and only Responsible Employees/Officers can be entrusted with the Root Password. This is the reason for security in Linux. There are thousands of hackers and malicious software makers for Windows, because that is easier for Windows owing to its vulnerabilities.

Additional disadvantage of Windows is, FAT/NTFS formatted hard disk gets frequently FRAGMENTED and data gets stored at scattered locations called clusters. With afflux of time, Systems slow down and crash, in spite of frequent defragmentation. Scope for this is very less in Linux. Linux OS has brought life to many old PCs and laptops discorded after Windows stopped loading on them. I am myself using two DISCORDED laptops after installing Linux. Linux Systems need no antiviruses, and hence millions of bucks can be saved for buying antivirus software(s) such as Norton. (To continue. सशेष. ఇంకా కొనసాగించాలి.)

562 I greatly respect Yanis Varoufakis, the Former Finance Minister of Greece. ग्रीस के भूत पूर्व आर्धिक मंत्रि यानिस वारौफाकिस् को मैं बहुत आदर करता हूँ। గ్రీసు మాజీ ఆర్ధిక మంత్రి శ్రీ యానిస్ వారౌఫాకిస్ నేను ఎంతో గౌరవిస్తాను.


Whether right or wrong, I have great respect for the former Finance Minister of Greece. This is because, what he said about Marxism and Total Socialism, applies more to India, than to Greece. We shall take the quote:
"Karl Marx was responsible for framing my perspective of the world we live in, from my childhood to this day. This is not something that I often volunteer to talk about in “polite society” because the very mention of the M-word switches audiences off. But I never deny it either. "


अछ्छा हो या बूरा हो, ग्रीस के भूत पूर्वक आर्धिक मंत्रि श्री यानिस वारौफाकिस से मुझे आदर है। क्यों कि, उनहोंने मार्क्सिजम् (जिस को मै संपूर्ण सोषलिजम् कहता हूँ) के बारे में जिस टिप्पणि किये, वह, ग्रीस से ज्यादा भारत को वर्तित होता है। हम उस तथाकथित को देखेंगे:
"...मेरे बचपन से आज तक, हम जीनेवाले इस दुनिया के बारे में मेरे दृष्टिकोण को मै निर्माण करने में कार्ल मार्क्स के प्रभाव पुष्कल है। परन्तु आज के हमारे संघ, जिस को लोग मर्यादा संघ मानते है, उस में "ऎम शब्द" श्रोताओं को स्विच आफ करता है, इस (विमुख) संघ में मै इसको (मेरे ऊपर मार्क्स के प्रभाव) प्रस्ताव करने के लिये मै संसिध्ध नहीं हूँ। लेकिन, मै इस सत्य (मेरे ऊपर कार्ल मार्क्स के प्रभाव के सत्य) को कभी भी इनकार नहीं करता हूँ।"


Telugu language: తప్పైనా రైటైనా (ఈనాటికి) నాకు గ్రీస్ యొక్క మాజీ ఆర్ధిక మంత్రి శ్రీ యానిస్ వారౌఫాకిస్ అంటే ఎంతో గౌరవం ఉంది. ఆయన మార్క్సిజం (నేను సంపూర్ణ సోషలిజం అనే పదాన్ని తయారు చేశాను. ) గురించి చెప్పిన మాటలు, గ్రీస్ కన్నా ఎక్కువగా భారతదేశానికే వర్తిస్తాయి. యానిస్ వారౌఫాకిస్ గారు ఫిబ్రవరి 2015కి వ్రాసిన ఒక వ్యాసంలో వ్యక్తం చేసిన ఒక మనో భావాన్ని గమనిద్దాము.
"కార్ల్ మార్క్స్, మనం నివసిస్తున్న ప్రపంచం యందు, చిన్నప్పటి నుండి, నా దృష్టికోణాన్ని తయారు చేసుకోటానికి బాధ్యుడు. ఇది ఈ నాడు మన 'మర్యాదస్తుల సంఘం' లో ప్రస్తావించటానికి నేను స్వఛ్ఛందంగా ముందుకు వచ్చే విషయం కాదు. ఎందు కంటే 'ఎమ్ అనే అక్షరమే లేక పదమే' శ్రోతలను (ప్రేక్షకులను) స్విచ్ ఆఫ్ చేస్తుంది. కానీ నేను ఉన్న వాస్తవాన్ని (నా ఆలోచనా విధానంపై మార్క్స్ యొక్క ప్రభావం) ఎన్నటికీ కాదనను. "


Today, What is the position of Marxism (Total Socialism) in India? आज भारत मे मार्क्सिजम (संपूर्ण सोषलिजम) के स्थिती क्या है? ఈరోజు భారత దేశంలో మార్క్సిజం (సంపూర్ణ సోషలిజం) యొక్క పరిస్థితి ఏమిటి.



Indian Youth, particularly the urban youth which acquire some academic degrees, and get some employment in software sector or in some Finance Sector, has a tendency to overestimate itself. They seem to believe that they are genius(ii) on par with some Satyam Nadendla or some Indra Nooyi or some Sundar Pichai (Minimised new Google CEO). In reality, to call all these persons who have enslaved themselves to the cause of Capitalism, and pledged their souls at the alter of Capitalist Corporate Giants, as "Geniuses" will be a slander.
