సుస్థిరత
సుపరిపాలన
ఒకే నాణానికి
రెండు పార్శ్వాలుగా 
సురాజ్యం జాతికి
ఒక మేలు కొలుపే కాదు
ఒక చల్లని పిలుపు కూడా
కనీస అవసరాలు కానరాక
చేయు చేతివృత్తులు కడుపునింపక
ఎందరో చచ్చీ చడీ తెచ్చిన
దేశ స్వాతంత్ర్యం అరవై ఐదు
సంవత్సరాలు గడిచినా
ఇంకా మిగిల్చిన
ఆకలి అనారోగ్యం
నిరుద్యోగం పేదరికం
మనకి దక్కిన వారసత్వపు
ఆస్తులుగా అందిస్తూ సా...గుతోంది
అవినీతి కుంభకోణాలకు స్థానమైన పాలన
ప్రతీ ఎన్నికలకు జనాన్నుద్దరించునట్లు
ప్రజాకర్షక పథకాల జిలుగులు అద్దుతూ
ఉచితానుచితాల మేనిఫేస్టోలు జోడిస్తూ
అరచేతిలో ప్రజలకి వైకుంఠం చూపిస్తూ
ఎక్కడ వేసిన గొంగళి అక్కడేలా
మారని బడుగు జీవుల బతుకులు
అవిద్య అజ్ఞానంలో జనాన్ని జోకొడుతూ
ఉద్యోగిత, ఆరోగ్యం అందరికి ఎండమావైతే
ముద్దుగా దేశాన్ని ప్రజాస్వామ్యంగా పిలుస్తాం కానీ
ధనస్వామ్యం రీతిగా ఓట్లు పదవులూ కొనబడుతూ
రాజకీయాన్ని వ్యాపారంగా మార్చిన (వి)నాయకులు
స్వార్థానికి స్వలాభానికి
దోపిడీ చేయబడుతూ ప్రజాసంపద ఎంతో ఎంతెంతో 
విదేశీ బ్యాంకులలో స్వంత నిల్వలౌతాయ్
తరగని ధనిక పేద వ్యత్యాసాలు
ధరలభారం కాక పన్నుల మోతతో
నడ్డి విరుస్తూ జనానికి యే ఏటికాయేడు
త్యాగాలికి సిద్దంకండంటూ ఉద్భోదిస్తూ
కరెంటు కోతలతో రాజ్యంలో చీకటి రా(త్రు)తలు
రైతేరాజు అవుతున్నాడు వ్యవసాయంకోసం
తెగబడి ఓ వెన్నెముక లేని ప్రాణిగా
అప్పుడప్పుడు ఉరితాడికి తన బతుకు పణంగా పెడుతూ
కష్టనష్టాలెన్నింటినో ఎదుర్కొంటూ మనకున్న
సహజ సహనగుణంతో ఎంత కాలమైనా
ప్రతీ ఐదేళ్ళ ఎన్నికలకీ ఓటేస్తాం రాజ్యంగబద్దంగా
గెలిపిస్తాం మళ్ళీ మళ్ళీ మనకందించే పప్పుబెల్లాల పార్టీని
తెచ్చుకుంటాం ఏదో తక్కువ అవినీతి ప్రభుతని ఏరికోరి
మరో ప్రపంచానికై కన్నెత్తి చూడం
ఎందుకంటే మరో మార్పుకై మనం తలవొగ్గం
ఇప్పుడున్నదే పొందినదే ఒక స్వర్గం
వదిలేస్తాం దుర్భర జీవితాల్ని ఏ కర్మకో
త్యాగానికో అలవాటుగా ఈ పుణ్యభూమిలో పుట్టినందుకు
అందుకే సురాజ్యం నాకొద్దు
మరి నే బాగుపడి పోతేనో?!

@Status of Projects - Loksatta Role
Aug-21-2012

Respected Loksatta Party cadre ,hardworking fellow indian volunteers and respceted leadership

----------

The topic is - Indias development project and Loksatta Role

I have followed Kukutapally now website and observed many development projects undertaken ,yes Dr JP garus is an MLA and is duty bound having said that in the same token let me bring to attention at Indias level what are the Projects

Infra - Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor - type in google DMIC ,you will get a official web site ,sri Amitabh Kanth is the CEO ,I request Loksatta team to access the Project web site ,also GIDB(Gujarat Infrastructure Board web site ) ,it has many PDF documents on smart cities and planned documents by Harlow Crow (British architecture firm) and Scott Wilson ,it is all 21st century planning and a wealth of information (grid based power ,water etc) is all available on the web.

It is true the project does not touch AP state ,yet there are many items that we can learn or implement along Vizag COAST

ii)Minsitry of Rural Development - its web site has many projects and lots of documents like Pura etc ,incidentally warangal or Krishna District is chosen as a Pilot project (only Six districts across India were chosen - one is Tamilnadu,UP ,MP ,Maharastra etc)

Loksatta team can study the PURA project and liase with AP state Govt and other govt macinary to see that we get the PILOT project of PURA takeoff in AP state (i know many Traditional political parties might be thinking will state break up ,if so why now we will think about it later etc) but Loksatta being different ,can and capable of seeing the project be implemented(i heard as per media ,Funds have been allocated )

@Loksatta Mumbai - Sri Surendra Srivatsava
Aug-21-2012

Respected Loksatta Party cadre and respected Leadership

Namaskaram

 I have visited Loksatta - Maharastra website and have seen few LOKSATTA videos and felt sri Surendra Srivatsava garu is a very mature ,clear minded and good leader , I have also viewed his videos especially - Root cause of Corruption ,it is a very clear video and explains the details

Everyone knows MUMBAI is a vibrant city and plays an important role in India

I wish to see ,more videos of Sri Surendra Srivatsva garu ,I feel very painful that Loksatta team from Mumbai should have led the Lokspal movement  ,not that Team Anna has not done excellent job ,they did a excellent job

But ,if Sri ASurendra Srivastva garu represented the Lokpal movement ,

he would have answered the questions and debated much better both on NDTV (media)

he would have also better dealt with Govt(Parialment) in meetings with them

Sri Dr JP Garu ,sri Verma garu ,please invite Loksatta Mumbai team to Hyderabad and please involve them please

There is a huge role sri Surendra Srivatsava garu can play in UP state as well

@Defense - 35 Billion Dollar investment
Aug-18-2012

Respected Loksatta party cadre ,patriotic hardworking fellow Indian volunteers and respected leadership

----

Refer to Times Of India article - India to invest 35 Billion US dollars with Russia jointly to develop 5th generation strike Fighter article

I)I give benefit of doubt and not suspecting ,but Iam concerned if there was lots of scrutiny and process(calculations etc) worked out

35 Billion US dollars even over 10 Years is - 3.5 Billion us dollars per year spent -  calculate per month is a couple of hundred million dollars

For Indias dynamics it is huge expenditure ,we already placed 10 billion us dollars (which actually might be 20 billion us dollars with spare parts) with Rafaele of France

so it is - 20 billion (probably Rafaele ) and 5th gen strike aircraft - another 35 billion us dollars = 55 billion us dollars for IAF ,this is a big chunk

none of the programs ISRO or Education even Infra have that much investment

so questions do arise

--------

i)is there a independent panel (with experts to judge the pros and cons)

ii)has the Indian Parialment discussed - and what is BJP doing about it?

iii)why are the so called Mulayams ,Lallus etc never utter a word

iv)what does Ex retired army chiefs ,iaf chiefs think ?what does our IITs and IISC think (can the work out the merits ?)

This is a critical issue and hope LOKSATTA will trigger such a discussion at NEW DELHI level and see that we discuss it

People of India have the right to know the investment is correct and in right direction

everything should start as a doubt until we firm our opinion and consolidate with logic should be the evaluation motto (similat to a press reporter ) until techinical evaluation and testing in final stages

So Loksatta ,please take this issue for our country sake - Dr JP garu ,recently joined NRIs like sri Dilip Reddy please do some homework on indias defense procurement over last 2 decades and into future

There are some voices which cannot be ignored like the kith and kin that died in MIG 21 Crashes (quite a few ) I vaguely remember even Aamir Khan s movie rang de basanti has a scene where procession against impotent spare parts for IAF is reponsible for some crashes

we do not know the actual truth ,vested interests distort and common man of india is all too immersed in Poverty and Inflation ,so onus is on Educated folks and professionals to seek truth and we should do it

@Political family cobwebs
Aug-18-2012

@Respected Loksatta Party Cadre ,fellow volunteers and Leadership

-----

Namaskaram ,with humble thanks for allowing the space and time coming to the point

Let me take the Subject - Political cobwebs and Political systems and explain in detail

Let us take Indian politics in general

we know that at New Delhi level - we have smt Maneka gandhiji and sri Varun gandhiji under the umbrella of BJP party

Likewise we have sri Rahulji and smt Soniaji with congress

It is perfectly legal ,acceptable and it is valid within a single Family ,people have different affiliations and opinions this is all fine

liekwise we see in Haryana at one time Sri Devi lalji and his son OmPrakash Chauthalaji ,likewise in UP sri Mulayam singhji and his son sri Akhileshji etc

Iam sure it may be similar in PUNJAB as well

Having said the above let us comeback to our own state Andhra Pradesh and its polity ,especially last one year

i)Andhra Pradesh was is in serious turmoil with Telangana issue

ii)Later YSRCP split out from Congress to float a party

now during all this period if we read newspapers from Andhra Pradesh

we can find out

1.Smt Sushmaji of BJP used to attend Lakshmi Vratham on fridays with sri Gallii Janardhan Reddy garu Family

2.Every single day all we could read is a spokesperson like sri Mothukolu Narsimhulu of TDP issue statements ,to be retaliated by Congress or YSCRCP spokesperon like sri Jupalli or Sri KCR (TRS etc)

3.We also know Kadapa Mayor sri Ravindra Reddy garu is related to late YSR family

4.Sri Mohan Babu  garus home production was attacked during telangana sentiment ,we also recently same Mohan Babu garu went to Chanchalaguda jail and issued a statement that he is related to sri Jagan garu ,please also take into the context same Sri Mohan Babu garu was once affiliated to TDP and nominated for Rajya Sabha

5.We also saw Congress spokesperson sri JC Diwakar Reddy garu issue statements on behalf of Congress when YSRCP was floated (sri Jagans fasting in Vijayawada for Farmers etc ),we also know same Dr JC Diwakar reddy garus own family kith (son in law as per media ) is affillliated to YSRCP(active member)

Then there is sri Chiranjeevi garu his party PRP and later merging with Congress and his own son married to APOLLO group (that is peronal matter but I have to mention here since Sri Chiranjeevi garu is now a public figure and in politics)

As I had previously mentioned ,BJPs Sri Nitin Gadkarji visit to Isreal

likewise we also know YSRCP has strong relationship with US based church groups(Republicans ) etc and might probably be connected to Isreal as well

then there is TRS ,Telangana issue and sri KCR Family (both his son and daughter are in politics)

Please also take into context ,at one time Vicky Nanjappa published Rediff article that said people of AP feel both Reddys and kammas are dominating ap POLITICS etc ,Iam sure that is a wave of frustration by common people

now Iam sure looking at Sri Gopal Kanda case in Haryana ,political murders in ap ,somehow Police is under Home Minsiter influence and it is perhaps the system is now in such a state of intertwined like a cob webb

ordinary people ,when I see Ordinary people(that includes NRI it professionals ,India based IT professionals ,farmers ,peasants ,etc) who are not related or affiliated to any political partys leadership or does not take the name or recommendation of Local MP ,then probably from Lodging a FIR ,buying a property in hyderabad registering it with Land revenue office etc is all not secure (now I understand why people feel insecure both who have money in India (hard earned) and who do not as well)

essentailly it means ,somehow we have to take someone name and approach a Govts office (like I know local TDP leader or YSRCP leader

etc),this shows how heavily system is skewed and namesake it is Democracy but actual breakdown of System has occured

Sri Mamta Benarjee being a state CM has publicly issued a statement against Judiciary itself ,she says she will repeat 1000 times ,sri Katju (PTI chairperson thinks it is OK)

yes LOKSATTA what Klitgard has said is 100 percent true and applies to India and in particular to the AP state.

I have not seen so many Families whose members affiliated to TDP,YSRCP,CONGRESS etc all rich ,blood related and control the whole political power and at the same time the very essential Law enforcement like Police etc are heavily influenced (in west they use the term 'Chinese wall ' within same bank  but between  different departments to prevent conflict of interest and ensure proper functioning )

I must say looking at AP state ,it is a cobweb and controlled by few families and every single party is under their control - TDP,YSRCP and Congress ,I feel in AP it is even volatile with MONEY thrown ,strong tactics used and in between is Telangana issue ,it is a VOLATILE cocktail and looks very sad state of affairs ,it is even more sad to see AP voters have also retreated into a state of mind ,all eat money all are same etc

this is very dangerous state of affairs in AP and even India

How can we

-------

i)make ap state not to be controlled by a just few families

ii)how can we make voters not to get induced by Liqour and money

iii)how can we educate voters that they should VOTE for Loksatta and give them a chance

iv)how do we tell them a better world is possible ,all they have to do is VOTE for Loksatta

v)how can we make more poeple like sri Dilip Reddy garu ,Smt hyma garu join the Loksatta party

I know Loksatta is putting every effort with Surajyam ,and working hard

But while critics slammed Lokpal is not a magic cure for all the ills I feel now LOKPAL is a must and good begining ,it should be followed

i)State police reforms

ii)proportionate electrol system

iii)juducial reforms

I hope Loksatta make every effort to make sure we get Lokpal first and then start to make sure we get all the reforms listed above

Otherwise AP state future is bleak so is India ,somehow people will live ,country will run (it will not stop) ,but that is not correct way

Youth for the nation's calling!
Aug-17-2012
The current and next generations need to be morally fit to rise above self to contribute for the nation's growth.It is the duty of institutions like LSP that need to imbibe this sense of social morality and service in the young brains of our country. It is with the morally fit and socially responsible people that the future of the nation rests, not in the hands of ordinary average Indian who is accustomed to live with social evils like corruption and impotent governance.

@Lokapal - Corruption
Aug-16-2012

Respected Loksatta Party cadre ,fellow volunteers and respected leadership

-------

Both ISRO(Indian space research org) and AAI(Airports Authority of India ) have implemented E-PROCUREMENT

AAI went even one step further to let Transparency be montored by International independent agency(auditing) ,its web site says it used SAP based IT platform ,these steps will check and curb Corruption

Now coming to the @LokPal issue ,we still need to cover the PMO and CBI independence and autnomy ,also another important area is DEFENSE releated procurement

i)Defense is sensitive and still procurement is in millions to billions of US Dollars

ii)It means SLA(Service level agreements ,spare parts ) and selecting the best equiptment

iii)vendors are major 4-5 namely - Russia ,EU(European Union - france ,germany and the UK) ,then Isreal(radar and missiles etc) and USA mostly

iv)Ideally DRDO should have indigenious production reducing dependence significantly but significant gaps still exist where procurement is through major Foreign vendors

it is in this context

-----

i)Defense needs E-Procuremet (unlike other E-Procurement portals) ,its portal have more secure layers inbuilt and access to only Preferred vendors by list

ii)Defense procurement should be overseen by a panel where it has good IAF,Army ,Navy based technical personnel ,Minsitry of defense and may be even engineers from DRDO on board ,such a panel will reduce the Conflict of Interest

iii)As India emabrks expansions in its defense budget ,now procurement is in millions to billions of dollars

iv)we have Indian ICT companies like HCL,INFY,WIPRO ,TCS etc who have expertise to implement a very strong and secure IT platform(E-procurement ) with strong inbuilt Auditing and Procurement

v)after major tenders evaluated and decisions to purcahase the same are made ,a one month window be provided for the Panel and Indian Parialment to debate or raise any questions for the same

Note :

---

 I personally request Dr JP garu or sri Verma garu or sri Dilip garu next time you visit New Delhi ,seek audience with just retired army general sri VK Singhji and just talk about the above proposals ,may be India centre for international studies may be the right platform to do the same

i also request Loksatta party cadre to visit ISRO web site and AAI web site to have a look

State vs Religion
Aug-14-2012

Respected Loksatta Party cadre and leadership

----------

Just today I read S .A  Iyer(Swami Nathan Anklesh Iyer) s article how Partition is Good for India and Pak (Economic Times of India article)

in that article Iyer mentions his logic how Partition is better ,if not there would have been many more riots etc

now let me clarify some things

i)Just before BJP took up Ramajnama Bhomi issue ,it has also coined the term Akhand Bharath (India,Bangladesh ,pakistan etc ) as one land etc ,later it disbanded the same

ii)Now I have even heard BJP and Congress trade arguments on NDTV ,one such occasion BJP retortedsaying  it was Sri Late Rajiv that proposed a small site (Ayodhya etc)

Now coming to my personal experience in Sydney Australia ,I once visited an Indian Grocery store (I think the owner is a higher caste person (I need not explicitly mention the name of the caste etc)

I said to him ,there are examples of Sudan being broken up as North Sudan and south Sudan ,purely 100 percent based on the religious lines

I expressed to him ,in some pockets of South India ,without solving Poverty and create opportunities ,if people are converted religiously or even if religious passions are evoked ,then there would be small civil wars

So I was saying essentially ,should religion comes first or solving poverty come first was the question I put forward ?

To that the Indian Grocery owner said ,Hinduism enocampasses all other religions etc

 

Having said that ,I was chatting to a anglo saxon pastor and he already had a opinion I must be communist or leftist (I presume ,some other Indians in sydney who knew my late grandfather has briefed him or he has come to know ,but that is not so important as of now )

I had to tell him my late Grandfather passed away in 1980s and he never hold any post ,even a village ward sarpanch ,I also had to tell him my late grandfather went to temple ,he was not CPM but CPI etc ,and at one time he voted for TDP(when Late NTR first entered politics )

here are the points of political mind games that Political parties in India play

i)First of all currently both Indians (and I assume even Pakistanis) ,all want Development and when people talk of Partition ,we are not talking about whether Partition should have happened or not happened (since it already happened there is no point) what many people are asking is

1.what lessons did Partition teach both Indian ,Pak citizens and politicians ?

2.History teached us lessons ,have we learnt the same?

3.How can we avoid similar situations ?and give better life to citizens of both countries ?is the question many citizens of both India and Pakistan ask ?

It is sad to see that ,debate is not steered to answer the above questions

My humble request to Loksatta party is

Even in USA ,where they say God Bless America when a US president addresses his citizens ,yet Americans kept STATE seperate from Religion

Americans also welcomed Talent from across the world and made laws in work place like EOE(Equal opportunity employer) means - no bias based on gender ,reigion or ethinic background

so we all know India is a Democracy ,but to make it even better

why not we also adopt - Seperate Religion from State

embrace and practise EOE(Equal opportunity Employer ) across all Indians PSUS and Private sector

@Innivations case studies across india
Aug-13-2012

Respected Loksatta party cadre ,respected hardworking fellow Volunteers and Leadership

----------

Recently I was delighted to know two eminent NRI perosns have joined Loksatta

I have come to know that they have Technical background and Leadership qualities which has made me happy ,it is in this context I would like to post some suggestions

---

Refer to Business Today (India Today sister publication) ,also refer to Bhuvan (ISROs geospatial portal on the web ) ,Mahindra Rise platform,Rivkin Gandhis Digital Green etc

The business Todays article is - Innovative India: A look into ideas transforming the country

various case studies have been presented ,Iam sure there are many more such case studies across India ,some success ,some might not be

My suggestions are

----------

i)all the above case studies are isolated,we have no integrated database yet to store all the indices (data)

i)Now that we have Technical Background engineers like smt Hyma and sri Dilip garu joining Loksatta ,why cannot Loksatta construct a Business intelligence platform (outsource software development to local Hyd based IT companies)

ii)Since sri Dilip garu and hyma garu have already Team lead experience in USA ,they can interact across the country ,where those case studies have succeeded ,for example :if it is in agriculture ,they can get geography,weather ,irrigation methods etc ,likewise education ,school ,method of teaching etc

All such information can be harnessed and stored on a Business Intelligence Platform (where dimensions can be - Time,geography,area,teaching methods,etc) and such information can be superimposed on ISRO BHUVAN platform(real time GIS based interactive data )

This Unique business intelligence data with GIS real time interactive maps could be applied across Mumbai ,Rural AP or TamilNadu to usher development

At the same time I heard sri Nilkenni ,sri Deepak Parekh etc are donors of upcoming India Urban institute near bangalore

If Loksatta can construct such an Intelligence platform and use it in Kukutappally or Srikakulum through engaging its Volunteers like sri Babji garu and local youth ,not only development takes place ,but bidirectional feedback to Govt (ap state ,Panchayats etc can be done ,just like Loksatta did education reforms with Microsoft employees in Kukutapally )

I suggest Loksatta to discuss this idea ,workout a budget and utlize the esteemed resources of smt Hyma garu and sri Dilip reddy garu and also engage the local youth in Vizag sorrounding areas etc

Please note Space Applications Centre at Ahmedabad or Dehradun(ISROs training inst) runs courses on GIS based planning and does not cost a lot of money ,Loksatta can select a few young volunteers from Kukutapally ,plus Vizag ,plus Tamilnadu ,Mumbai (like a dozen of them and sent them to such training )

later when the above proposed BI platform is constructed ,the above trained youth will act as Field agents and under the able leadership of sri Dilip Reddy garu

Ideally it is Govts job and Panchayats should do in India ,but we are not sure when that happens (in which Five year plan and Pura project ?) so there is nothing wrong if Loksatta becomes driver and shows the way ,Govt can follow it on a wider scale

Either way it will be a positive step to do
