Modi to form govt anyhow !

Contrary to the general presumption that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may not be able to form the government at the  Centre next time, those familiar with Modi-Amit Shah’s style of functioning believe that he will form the government, come what may.








Why businessmen join politics ?

The general impression is that businessmen join politics to protect their interests . True, but another factor which drives them closer to politics is their desire to increase their aura of influence.





Vouce of reason...

I'm enjoying my mid-day Cuppa at my favourite CP Cafe..... seated at the adjacent table is a Gentleman who is busy on his 2 Mobile Phones. After a while he strikes a convesrsation with me.

Gentleman:  I'm......(name withheld).....I am a freelancing Journo..... rest assured not the 'taken over' type..... free from all pressures ... my bet is this Rafalle hulla is all a diversionary tactic..... by the way in a Speech RaGa's gaffe..... Rafalle costs Rs. 526!!!

Me: Divisionary from what....as for RaGa ....there's a clear disconnect  between his tongue and his brain...

G: I feel....from this Government's achievements..... Congress has thrown Rafalle waali haddi and a section of the Media is running after it.....and creating a hulla...

M: Go on...

G: Like take Modicare.... Jann Aushadhi..... Public is really benefitting.... over 2,00,000 Indians have availed of Modicare.... out of these 68% getting treated in Private Hospitals.... lesser pressure on Government Hospitals... and they get wide range of speciality  treatment..

M: My Maali who is a Diabetes patient was telling me his medicines used to cost 1200 / month.... now from Jan Aushadhi outlets he buys the medicines for 430/ month...

G:  Mark my words ....like Ujwala electorally benefitted BJP.... both these schemes will benefit BJP tremendously...and without Aadhar effective implementaion of Modi Care

is impossible ...

M: Now Court has the Rafalle details....  let's see what Court says...

G: Does the Court have the prowess to technically or financially evaluate.... no! What surprised me was..... Court asked Government for Procedure... and in Court the questions were on technical matters....

M: What's the focus.... samajh nahi aa raha hai...

G: As it is our Courts have limited time...Courts Overseas have short breaks... Canadian Courts have just 11 days off.... Brit Courts 24 days off... our SC works for just 193 days out of 365 days.....and this despite our Judges going on trips ....to study Courts overseas....how come they've not emulated British .... Canadian.... US....Courts when it comes to Holidays..chalo no one can tell the Court what to do or not do.... not answerable to anyone..

G: Yes.... like do you know any other Country where someone accused of plotting to kill the Head of State is put under House Arrest..chalo let's leave this issue here.... like they say.... Tuh koun.... mein khaam khaa (no one)!!!

M: I hear UP has taken first baby steps towards stopping  doling out free power to Farm Sector.... Solar Power Pumps...

G: China has stopped freebies like power to Farm Sector....got in efficient irrigation methods like drip irrigation and efficient sprinklers.... and invested in Agri Infra...

M: What really impresses me about the Sabrimala protests..... no calls to...... behead... crucify.... 1000 cuts....stone....this is Hindu Dharma...Sabrimala protests  continue...

G: By the way this issue too is a result of Judicial overreach.....

M: If only the Male Judges had heard the voice of reason amongst them....the Lady Judge...Women are more perceptive than us..

G: Jiss ne Ma ... Bhen... Biwi ki nahi maani.... ek dinn hotha hai unn ke saamne paani paani..

We have a good laugh and I bid adieu ...pay the tab and move out...

“ Supreme court on Rafale deal ”

The political Executive is expected to be transparent in Rafale deal ? No one can and should oppose judicial activism or judicial over-reach in the given circumstances for encroaching upon executive's domain?

It would have been appropriate had the Hon'ble Supreme court taken secret briefing from IAF officers on Rafale procurement?Their anonymity could have been maintained

All civil and defence services officers are bound by Conduct Rules. All report to the Executive. How could they depose independently in an open court on such a sensitive matter involving national security?

The Apex court has reserved its judgement. And, justifiably so.

It could still take the call by resorting to" in camera proceedings"

Salary slip contains personal information

The estranged wife’s lawyer had applied to seek information about husband’s salary. The purpose of seeking information was claimed to be bonafide as his client is fighting a legal battle against her husband claiming maintenance from him. The Bombay High Court dismissed the prayer of the wife’s lawyer for disclosure of husband’s salary slip using RTI route observing that the salary slips contain such details as deductions made from the salary, remittances made to the Bank by way of loan installments, remittances made to the Income Tax Authority towards part payment of the Income Tax for the concerned month and other details relating to contributions made to Provident Fund etc. Thus, the salary slips contain information of personal nature.


The lawyer had not asked for the gross income which he could have obtained as the same is liable to be provided under the RTI Act. Further, the application was not filed by the wife but by the advocate in his individual capacity.
