ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments: No comments. Everything depends on evidence, and facts. We cannot draw hurried conclusions, Nor, can we ignore, news reports.

The DainikBharat.com has added a caption to the news reading as under. I do not have sufficient expertise to translate this into exact English. But, it seems to indicate that Mr. Narendra Modi is not a child/adolescent when he got married. He seems to look like an adult, at least physically.:--
क्या सचमुच नरेंद्र मोदी ने बचपन में जशोदाबेन को छोड़ा था

कुछ चूर्ण छाप भक्त ये शेयर कर रहे है की नरेंद्र मोदी और जशोदा बेन का विवाह बाल विवाह था तो वो भक्त जरा इस फोटो को देख के बताये बाल नरेंद्र और जशोदाबेन इसमें बच्चे है या पुरे जवान है ?


The marital relations between Shri Modi and his wife Ms. Jashoda Ben, prima facie may be their private affairs. We need not take undue interest. At the same time, He is our parama guru (supreme teacher/preacher/discourser). This news report will at least serve as a 'filler', in an otherwise dull and dreary lives of our citizens, standing in ATM queues outside and inside crowded atm rooms, with or without eyes filled with tears, but definitely with sweat in our armpits, in spite of this being winter season, as many Banks are switching off their a/cs in ATM Rooms, may be to save power.

The news was dated 29.10.16, already nearly one month. I am unable to find even a single comment, at the Dainik Bharat. We can know, how careful and discreet, our readers have become.

When will Telugu newspapers / TV media wakeup? Probably they may be exercising extra discretion, on a slippery track.

Added on 30.11.2016, Another link worth studying.


Click to go to: http://www.firstpost.com/politics/fantasies-of-jashodaben-leave-narendra-modis-wife-alone-1475961.html. The author of this writeup is, as per Firstpost.com: Lakshmi Chaudhry. The title of this article is: "Fantasies of Jashodaben: Leave Narendra Modi's wife alone". This article was published on 11th April 2014, i.e. before the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections and Mr. Narendra Modi became our beloved Prime Minister of INdia, and Ms. Jashoda Ben became the country's Second Lady / Third Lady as per protocol.

Indian Citizens have already left her. Mainstream Media too has abandoned the issue. Mainstream media's priorities revolve around Ms. Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, on how they wear their slit-skirts at different TV Shows, and Film Festivals.

ybrao-a-donkey: Supporting or criticizing what Ms. Lakshmi Chaudhry wrote, depends on Readers' and Netizens' beliefs, and opinions. Different authors can have different opinions, and Readers can also interpret in their own ways.

Ms. Lakshmi Chaudhry can have a fresh look, because the situation has changed, since then. In 2014 April Ms. Jashoda Ben did not approach RTI Authorities.


DENIAL OF PASSPORT ON THE GROUND OF NON-AVAILABILITY OF MARRIAGE DECLARATION



As an INdian Citizen of Free India, Ms. Jashoda Ben is entitled to her own passport. The Passport authorities seem to be denying her, her legitimate right of getting a passport, ON FLIMSY GROUNDS. She seems to be tapping the doors of RTI authorities, but her efforts seem to be getting futile. Ms. Lakshmi Chaudhry, can now in 2016, highlight this genuine problem of Second Lady/Third Lady of INdia, as per protocol. The Passport laws appear to be draconian. Why should a married woman submit her marriage certificate / marriage declaration for getting a passport? My readers are welcome to clarify.

EXCHANGE OF DEMONETIZED NOTES



We have seen the photo of Ms. Hera Ben, mother of our beloved Prime Minister, exchanging her demonetized notes. Media gave good publicity for that photo. Doesn't Ms. Jashoda Ben have any demonetized notes? Doesn't she stand in any atm queues? Why Media is shying away from news about the Second Lady/ Third Lady of India, as per protocol?

Equal entitlement for publicity


If publicity for our beloved PM's relatives is go be given at all, it is to be given equally. Why special treatment to our beloved PM's mother, and Cinderella treatment to our beloved PM's dharma patni?

840 There will be many Odes and Hagiographies for Fidel Castro, but Facts may not support them


The sad demise of Fidel Castro, the ailing Dictator of Cuba is not totally unexpected. My heartfelt condolences. Late Fidel Castro had made alternate succession arrangements for anointment of his own brother as the next Dictator of Cuba. United States may be happy that the new rulers will be more amicable towards them. There is nothing specially right or wrong in that. What is permanent in this simultaneously Static and Dynamic World is, "Change". In the long run, we are all dead. There is nothing to rejoice about in the dynastic succession of Raul Castro to the throne of Cuba, as long as it is not democracy, through the expression of freewill of people of Cuba, howsoever, enlightened or unenlightened they may be.

If the Western Press, and the Euro-American writers get suddenly interested in Cuba, they may write some Odes, and hagiographies, digging out from the histories. Thereafter, they can also, and they usually do as is the habit of the Capitalist Histories, bury Late Fidel Castro into their standard templated pits of made-out histories, painting persons either as greats or villains.

We shall take up a sample set of FOUR quotes attributed to Late Fidel Castro.

A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.

They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?

I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating... because it causes war, hypocrisy and competition.

The revolution is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.


ybrao-a-donkey: Examination of the above three sample quotes



A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.

Talk about "struggle to death" is all nothing but empty chivalry. Marxist / Communist / Socialist / Proletarian Revolutions are not EXPECTED to be one time affairs. Such struggles-to-death tend to be one-time revolutions, lasting as long as the first leader lives, or, until the first leader is displaced/replaced. On the other hand, we need paradigm shifts of thought processes and skills of the EXPLOITED.

Revolutions are expected to be EVOLUTIONARY PROCESSES working within and over the hearts and minds of the proletarians. They are expected to be more of MENTAL EVOLUTIONS AND REVOLUTIONS. Obviously, they are expected to be gradual and time-consuming.

They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?

ybrao-a-donkey: Late Castro, by referring to Africa, Asia and Latin America, seems to be believing that Capitalism is a success in Europe, North America, ANZ. There are reasons to believe that Capitalism is a greater failure in the Industrial and Commercial World of EuroAmerica and ANZ, when compared to Africa-Asia-Latin-America, where it has not been sufficiently experimented upon. Capitalism, everywhere, makes a facade of success, in spite of its monstracity.

I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating... because it causes war, hypocrisy and competition.

ybrao-a-donkey: Using attributes like "filthy" does not add anything to the undesirable nature of Capitalism. While it is not possible in this brief write-up, to comment about Capitalism causing war and hypocrisy, I cannot altogether ignore, "Competition".

Competition per se , does not appear to be bad. Even in Communism (all its brand names Marxism, Socialism, etc.), there is need of competition among Public Sector Institutions. Without a healthy competition, lives can become dull and uninteresting. I have repeatedly emphasized that there is a dire/strong need for competition among proletarian parties, functioning with bottom-to-top leadership-transfer style.

The revolution is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.

ybrao-a-donkey: One dictatorship cannot replace another dictatorship. Dictatorship of Exploiters cannot be replaced by Dictatorship of Exploited. Reason: Dictatorships breed more dictatorships. Even if some Revolutions by situational and circumstantial compulsions start as violent upheavals,they are bound and expected to evolve as DEMOCRACIES OF THE EXPLOTED. Dictatorships breed callousness and apathy, apart from corruption. Dictators will ask people to eat cakes, where even bread is not available.

Sometimes, dictatorships can arise, with masks of democracies. Bottom-to-top Management Methods will get replaced by preachings and tyrannical hukums from the top.

839 Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu should stop riding over the backs of Public Sector Banks in Andhra Pradesh


One common factor Mr. Narendra Modi, our beloved Prime Minister of India, and Shri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, our beloved Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh share between themselves is, they cherish to ride over somebody else. While, Mr. Narendra Modi wants to pontificate to the Supreme Court Chief Justice, Supreme Court Justices, High Court Chief Justices, and Judges of States, Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu wants to ride over the backs of Public Sector Banks in Andhra Pradesh. Mr. Narendra Modi, soon after his coming to power, conducted a seminar for all judges in Delhi, and tried to impress upon them, so as to make them more ductile, malleable and pliable to the new BJP Rule. Mr. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, frequently uses the monthly State Level Bankers' Meets organised under Lead Bank Scheme, to make the State Level Bank Bosses more ductile, malleable, and pliable. Though no judge in case of Delhi, and no banker in case of States have openly spoken about their resentment against political and bureaucratic intrusions into their terrains, strains can be read direct, or between the lines from the Media Reports.

Our Telugu newspapers and TV Channels have forgotten or deliberately omitted, to report the problems of Andhra Pradesh I.A.S./I.P.S. Officers, and the State Level Bankers, owing to long review meetings (a sort of lengthy haranguings?) by Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu. If any of the reporters care/cared to have at least an informal talk with the I.A.S./I.P.S. Officers and State Level Bankers, they MIGHT/WOULD have at least, off the record, expressed their dissatisfaction over the manner in which Mr. Naidu is hammering them with too-many, and too-long-hour review meetings video conferences / as well as personal-attendance jumborees, as a result of which the Officials are unable to attend to their legitimate duties prescribed by Indian Constitution, Indian Laws, various Government notifications and circulars.

If all their time spent in Conference Chairs, ears glued to what the CM says, with water bottles, and probably some cashew nuts to munch in front of them, by the time they go back to their offices (if they chose to go back to their office direct), or to their homes (if they chose to go back to their homes after the tedious-tiresome-monotonous-unilateral meetings, they will be ending with bloated stomachs filled with mineral water, some badam/cashew nuts/cookies and some intestinal gases. It is, none of our concern, after that, they may or may not be going to some night clubs or bars to unwind themselves from the morning's debacles / proceedings.

Deccan Chronicle News Paper Print Edition dated 23.11.2016, Page 1, has highlighted the problem with the heading CM MEETS, A PAIN. Lengthy talks make babus, bankers unhappy. I am unable to, at this moment, provide a link to this news report. I quote below some of the relevant things:

*A Senior IAS Officer said that the State Government has no role in banking affairs.

He said: There is no use holding meetings with local bankers and officials.

The bankers said that they have to act according to the directions of RBI,

Every meeting conducted by CM Naidu takes not less than four hours.

Monday's meeting took six hours.


CM trying to boss over Bank Officers, without any jurisdiction



Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, also seems to have a habit of "instructing" State Level Bankers, for which he has no authority or powers. State Level Bankers are nodding to Chief Minister's utterances, only out of due courtesy, for the Head of the Government of the State.

NO LONGER, THE LURE OF FLIMSY, IMAGINARY DEPOSITS

Besides, earlier, State Government used to place some Term/Fixed deposits with various banks as "baits" and "lures". Now, as the State Government has transferred most of the funds in Term Deposits/ Bank Savings Accounts to GOVERNMENT PD ACCOUNTS OF TREASURES, State Level Bankers have lost their incentives to be the slaves of the State Governments. Earlier, Bankers used to be apprehensive that if they displease the Chief Ministers, the concerned State Govt. Departments may withdraw their Fixed Deposits. Now, there is no such fear.

NON-CO-OPERATION BY STATE GOVERNMENT IN RECOVERY OF BANK OVERDUES



Even in respect of the agricultural debt waiver scheme promoted by Andhra Pradesh / Telangana Governments, as the Governments have laid numerous impractical conditions for implementing the scheme, it appears that Banks are saddled with NPAs in respect of farmers who expected to get benefit, but could not qualify for the Debt Relief. In respect of these overdues, the State Government has at least a moral responsibility to help the Bankers in recoveries. Instead, Ministers of Andhra Pradesh seem to instigate farmers to question their Bankers.

RBI is the boss for BANKS IN ANDHRA PRADESH, NOT CM.



State Level Public Sector Bank Officers have to abide by the instructions received from their Central Offices, Reserve Bank of India. Even Government of India is not expected to directly instruct State Level Bankers. Central Government has to route its instructions through proper channel i.e. RBI, and the Central Managements of Banks, most of which are in Mumbai, and other Metros.

CM'S CONTRIBUTION TO CHAOS IN AND COLLAPSE OF, RURAL INSTITUTIONAL CREDIT DELIVERY AND RECOVERY SYSTEM



Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, by asking farmers not to pay Bank Loans during his 2012 Election outings, has done great damage to the Rural Institutional Credit System in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. So far, both the Telugu States have not recouped themselves from the damage caused by mass-defaults of farmers. It is a different thing if some debt-bitten farmers, or drought/flood struck farmers default in repaying their loans. Even those farmers who got good crops, good prices, good markets, defaulted, because Mr. Naidu had given a call.

POST-DEMONETIZATION SUFFERINGS OF FARMERS IN ANDHRA PRADESH AND TELANGANA



Now, after the demonetization by Mr. Narendra Modi, the sufferings of the poor farmers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana aggravated. They are unable to pay wages to agricultural laborers, harvest-machine owners, rabi-seed suppliers, etc. because everybody insists on small denomination new currency. Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu's Assistants say that they have written many letters to RBI, seeking supply of notes.

when will new Rs. 500 notes appear in Andhra Pradesh?



But, not much seems to have emerged. RBI seems to have its own road map and schemes of priorities among States. Rs. 500 denomination new notes seem to have been released and reached in other States, while in Andhra Pradesh, we are not so far able to see them. Rs. 500 new notes could have eased the situation substantially. Mr. Naidu can ring up to mr. Narendra Modi, and Mr. Arun Jaitley, who are his pals, and Mr. Venkaiah Naidu, who is his bossom friend, to do something real.
