Loose the Battle win the War

I sometimes meet my College Professor who has now retired and is in his eighties .....we always meet in the College Canteen. Today we meet at our usual place and over Ussal Pao and cutting Chai we get chatting..

Me: So the CJI has put the ball back in the Court of Hindus and Muslim Bodies who are Parties to the Ayodhaya case..
Proffessor: If you ask me the only way out is Party losing the battle to win the war...
M: Which means concede ground in the ongoing case ...impossible for both...
P: There were no GPS coordinates to pinpoint where Maryada Purshotom was born...yes we know he was born in Ayodhaya and a Ram Mandir existed there why doesn't the UP Government allot sizeable chunk of Land say 100 acres....and fund the Building of a Grand Temple ..Ayodhaya could be renamed ....Ramsthaan...nothing against Hindu tenets would be allowed in this City..
M: Yes then there are certain parameters for a Holy City..
P: Spiritual ....beneficial for mankind ....and even Animals if animals are part of the a Grand Temple ...with residential facilities for all stratas ..old age home...again for all stratas. ..the City could have a Hospital ...Maryada Purshotom Institute of Medical Sciences ...Maryada Purshotom Educational Institutions ...maybe an IIT..and Modern Goushaalas...
M: So the City will have an Engine for employment for all round sustainance ...and with slaughter houses closing down Goushaalas would be needed..
P: For air connectivity ..Maryada Purshotom Airport ....all this sounds grandiose ...but if it's gong to be the Centre of Aastha for 1 Billion + should be Grand ...comparable to the Holy Cities of other religions ..
M: Muslims should have no problems as long as Babri remains ...but would be difficult to get Hindus aboard...
P: This one step would take the wind out of the Muslims ...Majority oppresses Minorities ..cries.
M: Just as there are hardliners in Islam there are Hindu hardliners too...they want it all...
P: Recognize this ...there cannot be a settlement that will be pleasing to both Parties...a Hindu Nation...with a Government that is considered to be pro Hindu and has a Brute majority at the Centre and the State which the disputed land comes ...and still they accommodate Muslims ...Muslim hardliners would not know what hit them..bolti bandh..and everything should be iron clad. ...because if by a miracle it ...Centre or UP...if SP..Congress or BSP or a Khichdi of these Parties comes to power ..they cannot change the status or nomenclature of anything in this Holy City ...
M: Chalo I will write about our meeting in my Blog ...but after my writing ....on Ethical Procurements yesterday ...and our talk today ...many are going to say ....kuch zyaada idealistic nahi ho raha hai yeh...

Don't create hate

Indian government is doing good that for it's Indian nationals missing in Pakistan, but these are same useless clerics who during election create communal environment, evening issuing fatwa that only you should vote for non- BJP parties. But in pain you come, ask BJP government, conscience died ? Change yourself. Don't create hate, communal divide.


Uncertainty about extension to Chairman BBMB

While the extension of 3 months given to Member Irrigation BBMB to function as Chairman ends on 23 March, so far the Govt has not given further extension, pending selection of Chairman on regular basis. BBMB is observing holiday on 23rd and Board meeting is scheduled on 24th. Out of three whole time member posts, Haryana holds two while one post is held by Punjab , which leaves out the other two States Rajasthan and Himachal. As ACC may not decide the new Chairman by 23rd, the other States are likely to object to Haryana person Chairing the Board meeting on 24th.

Respect mandate

A lot is being mentioned on this channel about UP. In a democracy, the mandate of the people has to be respected. The new dispensation in UP is forthright, honest, sincere, effective and hardworking. It is also no nonsense. It is headed by a young Sanyasi who renounced the world at the even younger age of 21, who has no desires in the material world and who heads the venerable temple in Gorakhpur as its Mahanth. The state is safe in his hands. The country is safe in Modi's hands.

Non-receipt of RTI application sent by registered post

The RTI application was sent through Registered post and the same was delivered in the respondent organization. However, the respondent claimed that the RTI application was not received and hence, no reply within the stipulated time could be provided to the appellant. To ascertain the facts leading to the misplacement of the RTI application filed by the appellant, the CIC directed the FAA, Ministry of Home Affairs to inquire into the matter of the 'missing' RTI application and to ascertain as to whether the RTI application was actually misplaced or the CPIO had taken that plea to deny information to the appellant. The FAA was directed to take appropriate departmental action against the officers/officials responsible for the misplacement of the RTI application, if required. A copy of the inquiry report along with the action taken report was directed to be provided to the Commission as well as to the appellant within a period of six weeks. Further, a compensation of Rs. 2,500/- was granted to the appellant. The CIC also observed that the First Appellate Authority should give an opportunity of hearing to any Appellant if the Appellant expressly wants to be heard.


Record keeping and proper maintenance of files is a key function of any Public Authority. Every Public Authority should strive to maintain a system where the records are maintained in a manner from where they can be retrieved in a timely manner.
