Tributes to Gyanchandani
Dear Editor, This is in response to a BBC report about the death of Sobo Gyanchandani, a well known Communist leader of Sindh. The report also spoke of his differences with the group in the undivided Communist Party of India over the question of India’s attitude I the second World War- whether to oppose or support the British, Gyanchandani refused to move to India in 1947 though all his family members did so. The army major who come to arrest him during the Zia rule told Gyanchandani that he (the Major) had no option but to arrest him as Gyanchandani was Communist, a Sindhi and a Hindu. Lal Salaam to Gyanchandi. Jogdall...

Cleanliness begins with self
Dear Editor, Long back in the month of July when hordes of tourists from national and international level were visiting Kashmir Valley, I was travelling in a tempo traveller from Srinagar to Sonamarg, the famous tourist spot. Among other tourists in the vehicle, there was an American couple taking seat behind the driver’s cabin. When we reached at Behama chowk Ganderbal, after travelling a distance of 20 Kilometres the American couple stopped the vehicle and purchased some snacks, fruit and cold drinks etc. and the routine journey was restarted towards Sonamarg. During the journey onwards, the said couple ate all the items they had purchased on way, but every other passenger in the vehicle was surprised to see that the couple was keeping all the empty polythenes of the snacks etc. in t...

Border-dispute between Uttar Pradesh and Delhi
Dear Editor, It refers to meeting of Lt Governor of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, subsequent to directions of Supreme Court, deciding to hold meeting of Chief Secretaries of two states to resolve the border-issue between two states. Bitter fact is that boundaries of two states were improperly defined with river Yamuna not made boundary-line between two states in this area. Presently a very insignificant area in and around Abu Fazal Enclave colony of Delhi in southern part of river Yamuna belongs to Irrigation Department of Uttar Pradesh from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi, which creates lots of problems and hardships for development-projects of Delhi in this area. Even normal residents do not know that a portion of the same street in the colony is in Delhi while the other smaller port...

Banned placards taken inside Lok Sabha
Dear Editor, It refers to media-reports about some Parliamentarians carrying placards under their jackets despite a ban imposed by Lok Sabha Speaker. Nothing can improve till strict action is taken by Chairpersons of two Houses of Parliament against acts of Parliamentarians in the respective House which are against rules and/or directions of Chairpersons. Even Parliamentary committees are usually soft on behaviour of wrong-doings of Parliamentarians. Time has come when often-misused immunity to Parliamentarians for their acts done inside the House may be abolished. —Madhu Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Dariba Delhi....

Grave violation of MCC by Shri Narinder Modi
Dear Editor, This is sad news for democracy in India that the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is being flouted by a person no less than Shri Narinder Modi, Prime Minister of India. I would like to present the following facts which deserves urgent attention of Chief Election Commission. 1. The Prime Minister has been misusing his position has Prime Minister.

Nobel laureate’s speech
Dear Editor, Congratulations to Kailash Satyarthi for the Nobel Prize and this great recognition in the international arena. He has made all Indians proud sir. We are also proud over his excellent speech which was very inspiring and motivating. We are very proud of you and of your services to the nation and to the children of India. I also feel sad for the status of our children in our country. Wish our politicians learn from Mr Kailash Satyarthi and use his knowledge and expertise in the country. His indomitable courage is so inspiring and it is good to see the voice of humanity once again echoing from the land of Gandhi. Let the vibrations from this message create ripples in the hearts of the world leaders and freeze their minds of any action disrupting freedom and peace in any corner...

Voter turn-out and democratic norms
Dear Editor, The concept of compulsory voting is normally suggested as a remedy to correct low voter turn out in elections confronted by many democracies. It may be unbelievable to many to learn that the US and the UK are two established democracies that face low voting syndrome. In India, voter turn out varies widely between the States, but has improved on the whole. In 2014 Parliament elections, the votes polled were 66.40% of the total. Union territories have performed better than bigger States. Nagaland, Lakshadweep, Dadra Nagar Haveli, and Puducherry recorded over 80% voting. On the contrary, votes polled were 49.52 in Jammu and Kashmir, 56.28% in Bihar, and 58.36% in Uttar Pradesh. The case of the last two needs special mention as these are political hotbeds of active political p...

Increase in polling percentage
Dear Editor, Voting being our democratic right has been explored to a greater extent this year. The change in the thought process is already being seen when even the younger section of the society motions out of their comfort zone, which earlier was given preference over practicing the voting right, to choose the appropriate person they would want to be represented by. This change is giving hope for the better change in the times to come. A country can sure be trusted to function better where government is held in higher esteem and people participate in and trust democracy. Moreover voting is a way of showing our concern towards the communities and peers and having a greater sense of our ability to impact the nation. It is sheer pleasure to see people watch and comprehend the various fac...

PM’s ‘‘Man ki baat’
Dear Editor, Union Ministry of Information & Broadcast (I&B) should take a serious notice of many private TV news-channels having commercial breaks even during ‘Man ki Baat’ by Prime Minister, third in series on Sunday the 14th December 2014, which covered wide-spread topics of national life with main concentration on drug-addiction amongst youth. Firstly private TV news-channels should have a sense of responsibility for at least exempting themselves from earnings made through commercial breaks at least in such important messages from Prime Minister and President of India. Otherwise also, initial simultaneous telecast of Prime Minister’s radio-speech being broadcast from All India Radio must not be allowed in any case for profit-earnings for private TV channels. If private TV channels ...

India set to restore past glory of being world-leader
Dear Editor, Prime Minister Narendra Modi deserves all compliments for setting trend to restore ancient glory of India for becoming world-leader when his resolution to celebrate 21st June as ‘Yoga Day’ was adopted by United Nations General Assembly in record three-months time with a thumping support by 177 nations. At a time when leaders rush for relating such important days of the year with birthdays of personalities, India proposed (and subsequently accepted) for 21st June based on solar system with this day being the longest day in the year. Now it is time that India marches ahead for further promotion of Sanskrit at such high global forums for serving the mankind through treasure of hidden science (medical and technological) in world’s oldest language which unfortunately diminished ...

Rapidly rising unemployment; serious consequences
Dear Editor, The census 2011 reveals that more than 11.3 million persons are “Seeking or available for work” which constitute 15 % of working age population of about 74, crore between 15 to 60 years age group. It is reported further that in 2001 about 23 % of households had unemployed members which rose to 28% within a decade. Moreover, the persons “seeking or available for work” do not include house wives, students among others. The Times of India reported previously that over 20% of youth between 15 to 24 years of age were jobless and in absolute terms 47 million people are jobless which may actually be much more than even 113 million because census office has figures as how many persons have sought jobs through govt, agencies. Anyone can easily come to conclusion that for whom the G...

Disgraceful happenings at CIC
Dear Editor, It refers to CIC-verdict dated 31.07.2014 in appeal-number CIC/SS/A/2013/000138/KY wherein Central Information Commissioner has put on record that the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) of the responding public-authority threatened the Commissioner of making complaint against him before the (then) Chief Information Commissioner apart from lodging an FIR at the police-station against the concerned Commissioner. It is indeed a matter of most serious concern where adequate action was must even if the matter might have been later settled between the Commissioner and the CPIO, especially when the CIC-verdict carries details of the incident. Otherwise also, Central Information Commission has become a highly-mismanaged institution especially because of non-existence of a Ch...

Planning Commission in limbo
Till a final decision on new body to replace PC is taken, most of economic schemes will be engulfed in uncertainty
Going by the discussions that have been dominating the scenario at the national and state levels for the reconstitution of the Planning Commission (PC) of India with diverse powers to the states for pushing in the planning process in a decentralized manner has been left in limbo. No consensus appears to have been reached on the process or the points to be resolved for the new body that would ultimately replace the Planning Commission. The traditional working of the PC has been going on for decades since the mid-1950s when it was first constituted to give a shape to the economic activities and planning process for re-building India in modern age has been considered to be an old model by majority of the people in the corridors of power. Only one consensus appears to have emerged during disc...

Misappraisal of the power Corridors
Dear Editor, Assessing the mood of the electorate that exercised their right of franchise in the last three phases of the legislative Assembly Elections 2014, one can clearly claim that they have gone for a change of power hierarchy in the state. There are numerous reasons for the change of mood . The repeated imposition of curfews visa-visa the protests against the human rights violation, the incarceration of the youth raising the voice of dissent against the repression, the arbitrary killings, unfair probes into the human rights violation followed by suppression of the facts, & fudging of the evidence to cover-up the involvement of those at the helm of affairs, rapes, murders, scams etc. have amply added to the change of mood of the electorate. Secondly the display of insensitivity and...
