Kanhaiya-Is Left’s Aam Admi Emerging – Dr Adfar Shah

Dr Adfar Shah Kanhaiya’s recent remarkable speech in JNU and the series of interviews with prominent news channels aftermath reflect an articulate and an energetic politician in him. His much used Azaadi cry speaks of his urge for the inner social development in the country and fight against deeply embedded exploitation, disparity and perpetual alienation that millions of Indian’s are beset with. He may sound idealistic sometimes however while elaborating his scheme of thought, he is succinctly able to explain what he means and how it can be actualized. More than anything he has started using the language of jibes and sarcasm on vital issues with political politeness adding deliberate prefixes like Maananiye, Ji, etc (and then making fun of it as well saying Kehna hi padega), to be politically correct, reflecting his post jail Avatar and determination to take on big politicians in the country. He is searching for totality in his slogans towards equality for all in India, which in no way is a silly idea and touches everyone who feels concerned with day today issues and unjust inequalities. His jibes at the power elite are factually correct and politically mature that itself speaks of his future in active politics. He is fearless even after so much of construction, arrest, assault and labeling against him. His truth is so provocative that even violent fringes now are announcing a bounty on his head as per the new posters (eleven lakh rupees). Also someone has announced a prize of five lakh on chopping Kanhiya’s tongue which reminds me of the very Marxian idea that ‘the weapon of criticism cannot replace criticism by weapon’ and they are so weak to fight Kanhaiya’s ideas with ideas but bring in weapons and violence and not counter ideas. Let those who disagree with Kanhaiya, approach him and debate with him if they have guts and really some thought. He is fearlessly taking on big figures for he represents truth. His ideas of thought on pressing issues are definitely forcing conscious and rational minds to think. One wonders is he a yet another Kejriwal in making and will the day come (may be after two decades) when he will...

Lalu on Dubsmash

In the midst of High Voltage Bihar Polls, RJD Chief, popularly known for his political wit and Self-Styled Bihari Neta, chose to hit at Narendra Modi via dubsmash.

Not that he singles out a particular speech of mighty Prime Minister, but digs into number of often repeated gestures and dialogues. Take a look for your self.       By Team Analyst World...

Nirmal Gram Yojana: More statistics than substance?

Prasanna Kapoor One of the darkest spot on the face of an otherwise Shining and Resurgent India is the practice of open defecation. Not only is the sight of people relieving themselves in the open distressing to the observer, but it also lowers the dignity of the person involved and is disastrous for the environment. People travelling early morning along highways or in trains are faced with the revolting sight and smell of men’s and women’s rears defecating along the roads and along railway tracks, squatting often in a line. The problem of toilets in India In a country, where in 26 Century BC all houses in the Indus Valley Civilization had water flushed toilets[1] the present scenario is distressing. According to the latest Census figures a whooping 53.1 % of all households in India do not have a toilet, the figures for rural and urban households being 69.3% & 18.6% respectively. Though the figures have come down by about 10 % points since the last census in 2001, lot more work has to be done. Reasons for not having toilets in India include poverty, ignorance, lack of space and to some extent “tradition”. It is seen “normal” to some to defecate in the open and faulty beliefs like “doing dirty things outside the house” also contribute to some extent. Government’s efforts at addressing the problem Government woke up only in the mid – 1980s, during the Sixth Five Year Plan, to the problem of sanitation and the Central Rural Sanitation Programme (CRSP) was launched in 1986.  Initially, the CRSP was executed by the Central Public Health &  Environmental Engineering Organisation, under the Ministry of Urban Development with the sole aim of constructing toilets at government’s expense. It failed miserably and in 1992 it was revised on the recommendations of National Seminar on Rural Sanitation. The revised plan aimed at an integrated approach for rural sanitation  .   It was merged with the Department of Rural Development and public campaign was launched to educate the public about needs for toilets, on the lines of immunization and family planning campaign. In April 1999, CRSP was further modified and integrated with Total Sanitation Campaign. TCS was a...

Heritage – Kashmir, yesterday, today and tomorrow – Pl.D.Parimoo

Heritage – Kashmir, yesterday, today and tomorrow – Pl.D.Parimoo

Nearly 6000 years back a civilization flourished in a geographical territory comprising of several of today’s nations like Syria, Jordan, Lebanon ( the Levant lands) besides Iraq and north western parts of Iran. The civilization that flourished in this vast stretch of land the Mesopotamian civilization generally presumed dead surprisingly persists and its heritage preserved even today by the Levant and the Kurds. Aram Abdul Rahim is a young metallurgist trapped in the bloody battle grounds of Syria. I could control my surprise with difficulty when he as a proud new father told me he had named his daughter Inana! Sensing my discomfiture he was quick to add that Inana might be the name of a primitive Sumerian Goddess but she was a part of their heritage and  meant nothing odd in the Muslim society of Levant; of course it may not be tolerated in Saud or Qatar, who did not have a civilization worth the name before the great Prophet (PBUh) gave them a semblance of civilization which was fabulously enriched by contribution of Egyptians, the Iraqis the Iranians and many other societies including those from India. A great civilization came into prominence during the last about 1500 years which is the jealously guarded heritage of Muslim world today. Some ill informed people may wish to just define it as a world of Muslim society careful to omit the heritage status it has gathered over the centuries. The word Heritage is extensively used by tourism brochures to promote new avenues and explore new markets of tourism.  Many including some NGOs feel that heritage signifies just a ploy to attract tourists and is a term coined to collect higher revenues. Dictionary defines heritage as things or circumstances inherited. Heritage may be of a family, a community or a large mass of humanity with more similarities in common than dissimilarities amongst them. The older the vintage of inheritance and the better preserved it is by successive generations the richer and more distinguished the Heritage is considered which  not only makes the inheritors proud of themselves, enhances  their sense of self esteem but also  commands  respect of  even those who don’t fall in its ambit.

Making a Difference in Myanmar – Naveeta Kapoor

Making a Difference in Myanmar – Naveeta Kapoor

India stood behind Myanmar since its resumption of ties in 1991 in an era of sanctions discarding global concerns. However, it has failed to generate enough interest in the hermit state to bolster its geo strategic needs, trade and transit. Despite 20 years of bilateral relations in an era where China, Thailand and Singapore were the only major trading partners with a closeted Myanmar, India’s trade with Myanmar stands at a measly $1.3 Billion with a promise to raise it to $3 Billion by 2015. The border trade turnover between India and Myanmar has ranged from US$ 10 to US$ 22 million, which would be higher if informal trade is taken into account. India’s cultural ties with Burma (now Myanmar) go back a long way. However India and Myanmar failed to put these cultural ties in the right orbit ceding space to China. India’s “soft power” must now be deployed to win over the people of Myanmar who are hopeful now that change is coming. Majority of the population of Myanmar are Buddhists with deep linkages to Indian Buddhist centres. India can bolster its image in Myanmar through cultural exchange programmes between the two countries and promoting tourism. Innovative diplomacy will go a long way in winning the respect of the people of Myanmar. Is – products, and another in makeup gotten that steps back very viagra generic January, into in product.
