766 Are Temples taking advantage of donations received from Sinners? Does anybody become mad if there are no temples, mosques, and churches?


Just as the weakness of Mr. ybrao-a-donkey is computer keyboard, the pastime of Mr. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Residual Andhra Pradesh is -speak and speak endlessly. The Readers of ybrao-a-donkey are free to avoid his blogs. But, the listeners of Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu cannot escape. For example, the Secretaries and Collectors, probably District Superintendents of Police etc., who attended the Collectors Conference dated 25th May 2016 held in Vijayawada, received their Sermon on the Mount, and the Ten Commandments. Grinning or clapping, all the Senior and Junior I.A.S. and I.P.S. Officers present in the Conference have received them with awe and glee. Here is a Financial Express News Report, which contains some vignettes of his advice to the bureaucrats. Click here to go to Financial Express. . Alternatively there is another DC Report: Click here to go to Deccan Chronicle.com Report.

"...Income of temples in Andhra Pradesh has grown by 27 per cent in a year ..."

"...growing sins and increased troubles ..." of people.

"...People would go mad without temples, churches and mosques. ..."

"...People are committing sins. Some are facing troubles and to get rid of them they are going to temples and praying. If they are facing more troubles and committing more sins, they are coming to temples and offering money. It’s a fact. ..."

"... Not just temples, people are visiting churches and mosques for solace. Many people would have gone mad if there are no temples, churches or mosques. ..."


Not to lag behind, TV9 has broadcast a panel discussion at approx. 7 p.m., on 26th May 2016, in which Swami Paripoornanda Saraswati and others participated. The stress of the discussion seems to be 'whether temples are being used by sinners to cleanse their sins by donating cash and gold. Whether temples can take such tainted money?' . A link to this discussion is not yet available on the Net.

765 We built massive dams decades back, but we want Chinese to build a few rows of stairs in a dry river!


SriSailam Project on River Krishna, Andhra Pradesh-Telangana, India. Who built this dam? Chinese? Japanese? Singapore? This Great Dam, was built by the Government of United Andhra Pradesh. The construction of this gigantic project, though may not be as gigantic as Three Gorges Dam in China, reasonably establishes the capabilities of Telugu people, and Indian Nation. Then why does Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Residual Andhra Pradesh wants, a Chinese Company to build some stairs on the banks of River Krishna, for the ensueing Water Bathing Festival (called pushkara in Hindi and, 'pushkarAlu' in Telugu) of River Krishna in Aug. 2016? Have people of Residual Andhra Pradesh become so feeble that they cannot walk down to descent into the Krishna River, without hopping on the Chinese-stairs? It must be a matter of shame!

.
The Dam in the Picture is Nagarjuna Sagar Multipurpose Project. Who built this dam? The People of United Andhra Pradesh. A film by name 'RamuDu-bhImuDu' released around 1966, has a Telugu song, effectively shot when construction activities were going on the Dam Site.


TODAY'S TELUGU SONG. FILM: RAMUDU BHIMUDU. SINGERS: Shri Ghantasala, Smt. P. Suseela, and others. Poet Kosaraju. Music: Pendyala Nageswara Rao. Produced by Late D. Rama Naidu.

So, our Chief Minister wants Chinese to build a few rows of stairs, whereas decades back we could build massive dams without help from any country.
Tail Piece धूम केतू తోక చుక్క

Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh wants to hand over the 'Swaraj Maidan' (PWD Grounds) to Chinese for building some City Square. It appears that Chinese are not satisfied with occupying NEFA (a part of Arunachal Pradesh) and Ladakh (Eastern Kashmir). Now, Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu wants to present the Chinese the Swaraj Maidan also in a gold plate.

764 (Part 8/100 of Indian Economic Enigmas)- We should appreciate the courage of Mr. Raghuram Rajan


I am no devotee or critic of Mr. Raghuram Rajan, the Governor of Reserve Bank of India, whose tenure is going to come to an end, and on internet, there are demands for extension of his tenure. Though he himself, has not openly sought an extension, once he gave a clue to the effect that he needs extension, because there are many things left to be done by him. There are also reports that he met the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, and the Media is speculating that they might have talked about his extension. Whether the Government of India, its PM, its Finance Minister, grant him an extension or not, we can appreciate the fearlessness, openness of Mr. Raghuram Rajan, when he speaks. Any person who wants an extension for his tenure, or one who wants a favourable decision from another party, will not assert himself much, and say things which will irk the decision-maker. But, Mr. Rajan is free from such narrows perspectives, and he sticks to the instincts of his conscience. Here is one such example:--

Mr. Rajan's Speech at Bhubaneswar. Date: 20th May 2016. Context: He was addressing his Bank's staff in Odisa.

"... RBI has been enjoying full autonomy and support of the government so far and it should be allowed to take its own decision ... "

This type of Mr. Rajan's openness, if it comes to the Notice of India's Finance Minister or the Prime Minister, they may not take it lightly, notwithstanding the competence and expertise of Mr. Rajan in the arena of Banking and Finance. (Mr. Arun Jaitley, India's Finance Minister is a lawyer, and not an Expert in Banking & Finance. Mr. Narendra Modi is neither, notwithstanding his M.A. in Political Science).

There may be, at their (PM & FM) disposal, plenty of Banking & Finance Experts, who may be equally keen to drive the Prime Engine of Indian Economy. As a matter of fact, Mr. Rajan is more of an expert in super-macro-level international finance matters. He may not be aware, what happens at grass-root levels, in Indian Banks. It will be better, if instead of dumping some IAS/IRS bureaucrat from the Finance Ministry onto the throne of RBI, to learn how Bank Branches function, the Government of India appoints an existing CEO or a just retired CEO of an Indian Public Sector Bank as RBI Governor.

It is hightime that BJP Government restores a long neglected healthy custom of appointing RBI Governors from the Field level Operational Side of Banking Sector, instead of pushing down administrators from Delhi Corridors of Power.

FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF LEFTISM, MARXISM, TRUE AND COMPLETE MARXISM



Succession of bourgeoisie Governor by another bourgeoisie bureaucrat, in a bourgeoisie Administration and Economy will not make any difference, for the people. If X becomes a Governor or Y becomes Governor of RBI, that may be liked or disliked by Business Persons, Industrialists, and Top Bankers, depending on their own perspectives of benefits, costs, difficulties, entanglements, fortunes etc. At least 50% of India's population, do not know that there is an institution called RBI which administers and monitors the Economy of this country.

Bulk of the population may know about the existence of State Bank of India, or some other Public Sector Bank popular in their Area, but definitely not RBI, not to speak of RBI Governor, his-her-its autonomy, and their relationships with the GOI, PM, FM, Finance Ministry etc. Even Indian Media may not be truly interested in these things. They will be more interested to know when Mr. Salman Khan is going to marry his Rumanian friend Lulia vantur, or the colors of the curtains decorated in Salman Khan's Galaxy Apartments, Bandra, Mumbai.

As per my fad of TRUE COMPLETE SOCIALISM, we may have to envisage an Economy of India, in which there will be no currency and money, for domestic consumption, exchange, investment, savings or other uses. When private property is FULLY nationalised, and every essential need of citizens are met by the Government FREE, and ADEQUATELY, there should be no place for currency or money.

A Reserve Bank of India will become necessary only for handling India's Exports and Imports, and managing the External Value of Indian Rupee. As all the exports and imports are done only by the Government in Public Sector and only by State Organs, Reserve Bank's Role will revolve around the objectives and operations of the State.

I have already written many times about the need for intellectual upgradation of India's Working Class (Proletariat). India's Working Class will have to take more interest in the Banking and Economic Structure which India needs, if True Complete Socialism is not to remain a fantasy.

I may not live long; yet I too seem to have a fantasy, of starting a school / Institute for generating and updating Leftist Economists and Leftist Economic Models.
