[IAC#RG] ...एक मुठ्ठी भात ...

एक मुठ्ठी भात
……...…………

कइसे हम बिटिया के बचायीं,
कइसे हम बिटिया के पढायीं,
हमरा तनिको बुझात नइखे;
गरीब लाचार बानी ये 'सरकार'
घरवा में एक मुठ्ठी भात नइखे। गरीब …

काम के भी भइले अकाल,
बिमारी से हमरो सवांग बेहाल,
गरीबी में कोई हित - नात नईखे;
चूल्हा-बर्तन भी कर के कमइतीं
हमार अइसन पर जात नईखे। गरीब …

कई - कई दिन रहल भूखे परिवार,
राशन ना मिलल बिना 'आधार'
'मनवां के बात' सुहात नइखे;
दिन त कसहुं कट जाता हमार
भूखे पेट कटत रात नइखे। गरीब …

'आधार' के बिना निराधार बानी हम,
हमार बिटिया के ले लेलस दम,
भुखे पेट उठत 'लात' नइखे;
साहेब के जाँच रिपोट आ गइल,
'भूख से मौत' के बात नइखे। गरीब …

मांटी के चुल्हा भी बाड़े उपास,
जंगल के लकड़ी भी भइले उदास,
हांडी में माड़ पसात नइखे;
'कोइली' बहिनिंया के गोदिया में मरल
'संतोषी' के तनवा थरथरात नइखे। गरीब …

झारखंड में माँ कोइली की गोद में भात - भात पुकारते हुए 11 वर्षीया बेटी
संतोषी की भूख से हुई मौत की खबर से द्रवित भोजपुरी रचना। ईश्वर संतोषी
की आत्मा की क्षुधा तृप्त कर शांति प्रदान करें …… देश की व्यवस्था धन
कुबेरों को तृप्त करने में लगी है।

Õm - Õnkār - Allāh .God…..

[IAC#RG] A BJP MUKT BHARAT IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a good talker and a master in rhetoric theatrical blabbering. But the nation has now realized this and will not be fooled anymore. Over the last three and half years,

 

Narendra Modi has made merry jetting across the globe while the country has ebbed to dire straits. And more importantly while eroding the autonomy of even the Reserve Bank, Election Commission and the CBI, Narendra Modi and the BJP have ruptured the secular fabric of our great nation.

Transparency is fine; but accountability is missing. As a pattern, H.C.s overturn judgements of lower courts with serious strictures. Who will compensate the agony and nine years of the Talwars. A silly arithmetical error leads to a grave travesty of justice. In all the cases the judge goes unpunished and the victim suffers. An end is to be found.

Dear Mr Rodrigues,

This is one area where I completely disagree - the judiciary, unconstitutionally, seized the powers of appointments and transfers to itself, and completely upended the checks and balances of our constitution. If the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary are the three arms of our Republican, Consitutional democracy, then one arm can not say that it is not subject to any checks and balances of the other arms.

The executive should and must have the right to appoint/suggest/select judges to the HC and Supreme Court, which should then be ratified by the legislature - this is how it works in all modern and civilised countries. And, it is the only way to remove the untrammeled powers that the SC has seized for itself and put itself above all laws and all checks.

It is no secret that the judiciary today is the most corrupt organisation of the country, and that various (most) judges have made millions on the back of poor litigants. It is impossible to actually get justice in India today, in any meaningful time frame. The judiciary has become an incestuous cesspool.

From my perspective, the one single, easy reform that this government should implement - go back to the Jury system in civil and criminal cases in the HCs across the country, and make the SC only a court of appeal on law, not facts. Going back to the Jury system would put us back in the realm of civilised countries, give meaning to justice, hasten up timelines all over, and cut corruption in the judiciary by 90% overnight.


Thanks

Re: [IAC#RG] Kejriwal gang's 'pol' to be exposed soon in DMRC scam

Hello Mr. Malhotra

Are you the same Malhotra who was a chairman of Railway Board ?

If so do you even know elementary mathematics ?

The Times of India says "Metro fares in the capital will rise between
25% and 67% from Wednesday". But Mr, Roy has proved to you (a Rs. 12
fare becoming Rs. 30) that fares actually rose by 250% and 300% in
some other pairs of stations...

So the news story is incorrect.

What FFC has done is kept the lowest increase in the lowest and
highest fares but pushed up all the other fares to much higher sides
These are the typical bania methods to deceive consumers, so don't
believe what is written in these bania owned papers

I believe Mr. Roy when he says that his fare has gone up by 250%, can
you disprove it?

The points you are raising about Chinese contractor getting awards in
DAMPLE shows what little you know of matter. The dispute in
arbitration was between Anil Ambani group and DMRC. The line had to be
shut down for 7 months and then 3 months so all the defective civil
works, and beam bearings from Chinese contractors selected by
Sreedharan's DMRC were replaced at heavy cost to DMRC. Despite that
DMRC had to further pay around 3,000 crores to Anil Ambani group after
DMRC lost in international arbitration. Role of Sreedharan in awarding
Anil Ambani group for DAMPLE as lollipoop for losing lucrative Delhi
Airport bid to GMR is open secret.
