INDIA IN SHAMBLES - FORGOTTEN CONSTITUTION: Our Disgruntled Youth: Dear Friends, Speaking generally lack of development leads to lack of job opportunities, it leads to lack of means for living and ...
Speaking generally lack of development leads to lack of job opportunities, it leads to lack of means for living and an uncertainty for tomorrow. Poverty leads to deprivation and frustration. This leads to retaliation and then to revolt. Extremism or fundamentalism is a sort of retaliation and rebellion.Like,
-When a society undergoes perpetual economic regression, the people undergo unbearable sufferings. If their guardians are responsible for their woes, they (the people) may demand a change of guardians. In the case of the French and Russian revolutions too, the people faced acute poverty, illiteracy, insurmountable miseries, social neglect, and deprivation. When it became unbearable, they revolted. In the French Revolution (1789–99) the Bourbon monarch, and in the Russian Revolution (1917) the Tsars, were assassinated and their monarchies overthrown. Deprivation and lack of means can make a person beastly.
- In recent years (2011-2014) we witnessed the uprising and civil wars in Egypt and Syria on issues like socio-economic regression, lack of free elections and governments’ fiduciary deficit with the people.
The UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights) states it thus: “Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law”.And hence my emphasis on 'Implement the Forgotten Constitution of India for ‘Liberty and Dignity’.See Section 4.1 I of my book.

'It’s Time to Implement the Forgotten Constitution of India'.’Causes and effects of large scale migration of rural poor to cities.
When emigration takes the shape of exodus and large groups of people move from one habitat to another, it disrupts the local order of things. Large-scale migration is a kind of encroachment upon the natural living conditions of native local inhabitants and may create a hazardous situation.
Articles 15 and 19e are Constitutional requirements. But their implementation at the cost of resentment of the local people is a dangerous phenomenon. The case of Maharashtra and the venomous eruptions by some political parties must be viewed with this aspect in view. While such eruptions are offensive and unwarranted, they also invoke an urgent need for all the three guardians (governing and monitoring) to look into the causes that result in such large-scale exodus, gradually taking the shape of a menace. A similar situation was created when rickshaw-pullers were permitted in Delhi and now authorizing the illegal colonies to legal.
These episodes call for serious investigation into the causes compelling such exoduses. The conspicuous reason is perennial and consistent non-performances of our governing guardians (Legislature and Executive) in terms of tangible development. To halt such fratricidal episodes it is desirable for the monitoring guardian, the learned Judiciary, to direct the Legislature and the Executive to create avenues and conditions especially on the rural front on an urgent basis enabling people to earn their living at their native places.
Partisan thoughts and withering brotherhood (fratricidal instincts) culminate in the polarisation of the nation. It is a dangerous indicator of communal divides and fragmentation of the nation. The Tendulkar and N.C. Saxena Committee reports on levels of impoverishment and later the NSSO report (clipping 73A) have further underlined the pathetic condition of our people. The plight of tribal areas and that of interior India may be yet more harrowing than meets the eye–evoking little surprise at the rising Maoism, Naxalism and other terrorist activity in the country.

INDIA IN SHAMBLES - FORGOTTEN CONSTITUTION: Voraciously rising population and its consequences...: In the making of the nation ( Population, environment, and anarchy are inter-related) ...
In the making of the nation
(Population, environment, and anarchy are inter-related)
Effects on global warming:
Higher the population greater the demand for shelter, clothing, household gadgets and facilities for bodily needs, education system, municipal services, medical health facilities and transportation etc.. All this means more industrialization, more smoke-belching industries and more power generating stations, resulting in more burning of fossil fuels, and emission of yet more greenhouse gases. Fossil burning is more prominent in societies that are lesser developed (India is one) and still practice the use of fossil fuel (oil, gas & coal) in abundance for power generation. The global directive is to switch-over to non conventional (non-renewable) energy sources as fast as possible, mainly to Hydro-electric and Solar power generation (wind has limited scope), Chapter 8.8 of the book. This means shrinking of usable lands, denudation of forests, more global warming and so forth, gradually trapping us into a vicious circle. It is therefore imperative that the entire world understands the catastrophes that may emerge due to swarming population and exercises strict population control to negate its adverse effects. Say, from the present level of the world population of over 700 crore (2011) to 350–400 crore in about a hundred years, Chapter 8.4.
UN is required to play a very vital role cautioning the world communities to contain their population to a safe limit.
According to me, containing the global population can be a tangible means to contain the global warming and delay submergence of low-lying islands. A determined drop in population may quite possibly contain the rise in sea levels; even halt global warming in the course of time.
My emphasis on population control, therefore, is not merely socioeconomic. Global warming is a great threat to humanity. Thousands of islands in the next couple of decades may shrink and vanish into the seas due to this. It calls for human empathy and his commensurate efforts and commitment to protect the present and the posterity from this man made menace. Man is quite capable of circumventing such predicaments. O’ kindly light, let the wisdom prevail!
Recession and disgruntled societies is a natural phenomenon of unabated rise in the population and limitations of the mother earth in satisfying their ever growing needs and aspirations. Many of the evils afflicting the world communities are largely a culmination of rapidly rising population and paucity of our means leading to frustration and eruption of protests, agitations and disturbances. We have witnessed these occurrences with concern in various parts of the world during 2011-15. It is therefore imperative that the whole world takes a pause and gives this phenomenon a serious thought to practice strict population control as discussed in Chapter 8.4.

INDIA IN SHAMBLES - FORGOTTEN CONSTITUTION: Apex Court view on tainted Legislators--- My post ...: Dear Friends, There are many comments from different X-sections of intellectuals-- some for and some against. Irrespectiv...
There are many comments from different X-sections of intellectuals-- some for and some against. Irrespective of different opinions, I am happy people have affinity with their country, #India. My brief reply within the framework of the #Indian Constitution is noted below which I hope people will comprehend;
When the subject relates to our nation and its people and both #regressing consistently, I suppose it calls for an approach out of the box. The truth lies in the fact that not only there is ‘no implementation’ of the Constitution in the past 68 years of our #independence, there has been gross ‘abuses of the #Indian Constitution' by the Legislators and the Executives without any deterrence and more lamenting, we have no saviour to stop the same. This duty is of our Judiciary but for reasons better known to them, they too play bystanders.
My purpose through my research over the years is to wake up judiciary to their basic incumbency of getting the Constitution implemented playing a third eye for the Legislature and the Executive (governing guardians) and to thwart away all such attempts by the governing guardians that dilute, undermine or abuse any of the basic provisions of the Constitution. Unless they do so India shall be totally destroyed one day. We already are in deep shambles.
I have analysed in detail in my book that these are the tainted Legislators at the Union and the States level that are responsible for the gradual deterioration of the governing prudence of our country and basic cause for the miserable plight of our large populace. Tainted Legislators therefore must be banned at least in the governance of the country. Without this it shall be no less playing Nero’s while our own nation and the people would be getting destroyed under our own self inflicting curses. I have propounded for debarring Legislators only not others. For insight see my book #'It’s Time to Implement the Forgotten Constitution of India for 'Liberty and Dignity’.
Our election process for Legislators is highly abusive where the voters are required to elect out of an evil. It is not possible to find out ‘our man Flint’ out of the rogues. A few good persons alone can do little good unless the entire team is wise and prudent.
Mr Modi is an exceptionally capable PM, it shall be interesting to watch how he can change the whole nation with handful people of prudence, unless the whole governing system (Legislators and Executives) at the States and Union Territories are also commensurately knowledgeable, wise and prudent!
Request please glance through the book and you will find answers to all your doubts.
Thanks & Regards

Determining the merits and demerits of the budget 2015-16 I will like to leave to the experts, individuals, businessmen and the corporate sector who can do it the best. Presently I will like to focus on the rural development vis- a- vis budget provisions, the most important and challenging task before the nation as briefly discussed below;
The budget makes a hefty provision of over Rs 10 lac cr for the rural front in terms of micro irrigation, rural infrastructure, farmers and small entrepreneurs credit funds and MGNERGA etc..
According to me it can be best utilized tackling perennial floods, droughts and making farming viable. 64% of our farmers are landless labour and 33% are marginal farmers having land holdings as small as one hectare and less, rendering farming unviable. It calls for land management - making larger farm lands through cooperatives (Chapter 8.3 of my book) and creating infrastructure – by addressing scarcity of water (water management), power management, making roads and storage systems and very importantly, providing R&D and guidance to the farmers for better quality, productivity and utility of resources and suggesting them the kind of crops they should grow, also establishing markets for them.
The foremost for the government is to address these issues on an urgent basis towards making the rural poor self sufficient and self reliant at their native places. I wish the government initiates rural development on a holistic basis and engages the idle labour in constructive work rather than in various kinds of relief operations such as MGNREGA. My book provides ways and means how most of our idle and unemployed people can be engaged for better productivity and in turn their prosperity. Prudent and meticulous use of these funds may gradually settle the rural poor on a long term basis in a graceful manner rather than living on alms and charities.
Similarly provision for 4 cr houses for rural areas and 2 cr for urban is a noble cause. It is a huge task and calls for detailed town planning with all possible civic amenities and infrastructure in one go such as for education, health services and community services etc. I wish the entire rural front be developed to the level of modern urban cities. Concept of City Centres is an ideal philosophy to achieve the same and my book provides all possible road-maps and guidelines to establish them in a scientific way (Chapter 8.3).
Any short term approach shall jeopardize a good opportunity.
I shall be happy to have valuable reactions from the learned audience.
Thanks and Regards
