Burning queswtions


 I condemn Narendra Modi, Digvijay Singh and Lalu Yadav like politicians who have been speaking in favour of Naxalites and who are against the war against Naxalites launched by respected and lovable Mr. Chidambaram.. When Indian Government insist for stopping strike or agitating workers before starting dislogue with such striking but  existing employees ,why do they not make efforts for stopping criminal activities of naxalism and why are they unable to stop increasing extortion of money and arms by these naxalites. How do they dream of naxalites coming to dislogue table who are committing one after other heinous crime, killing thousands of innocent Indian without any rhymes or reason? Even if they enter into dialogue process and come to a point of agreement how Indian government will ensure that they will abide by the mutually agreed terms when Naxalites are unable to abide by existing Indian laws.

 Everyone knows that these naxalites are misguided by foreign based terrorists and they are more dangerous because naxalites are sitting in every corner of the country and mixed with Indians whereas Pakistan based terrorists have to cross border and send arms and ammunitions along with money to commit terror attacks.  It is bitter true that foreign based terrorists cannot get success n their dirty motto until India based naxalites support them. Obviously naxalites are the second side of same coin whom we say terrorist.



Is Mmanmohan Singh PM of India successful on handling price rise or naxalism or terrorism or unemployment or labour exploitation or giving clean and corruption free administration and judiciary to common men of India?

Is President of India deaf and dumb who do not listen the cry of starving common men due to abnormal price rise. Is she blind on even complaints sent to her by E mil on her personal websites or she  has turned blind eye to what her staff are doing in President’s Secretariat. She is lavishing enjoying her retire life as Governors of states are doing. Are tey not burden on Indian Government?

I condemn M V Nair and UNION leaders of banks who signed Bipartite Settlement after discussion for 30 months which has disheartened all bank employees and the agreement is totally illegal, discriminatory and cannot stand the test of law. When Indian bosses cannot arrive at amicable and suitable agreement with striking employees in India, how it can be imagined that they will get success in dialogue with Nxalites or terrorists sitting in Pakistan?







Thank you for posting such imprtant National problems, which should be addressed not only by our national Leaders but by every right thinking Indian Citizen. There is no magic wand that all these ills be solved immediately, but certainly Indian Leaders should give a  serious thoughts to address such National problems. Even NREGS is not reaching the people who really needs them, while the sky rocketing of prices in the market appears to be out of control  and Government should be alive to all these aspects.


 The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam 's Speech in Hyderabad . *

> Why is the media here so negative?
> Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse acknowledge them--- Why?

> We are the first in milk production.
> We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
> We are the second largest producer of wheat.
> We are the second largest producer of rice.
> Look at Dr. Sudarshan, he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit.

> There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters.

> I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.

> In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.

> Why are we so

> Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign T. Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology.

> Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that
self-respect comes with self-reliance?

 I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture,when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed India .

For her, you and I will have to build this developed India .

> You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation.

> Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.

> Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours.

> YOU say that our government is inefficient.

> YOU say that our laws are too old.
> YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
> YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke,

> The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
> YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.
> YOU say, say and say.. What do YOU do about it?

> Take a person on his way to Singapore . Give him a name - YOURS. Give
him aface - YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your
 International best. In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on
 the roads or eat in the stores.

YOU are as proud of their Underground links as they are. You pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road ) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity... In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU?

> YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai .

> YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah .

> YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in
London at 10 pounds ( Rs.650) a month to, 'see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else.'

 > YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop,'Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who
 I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucks and get lost.' 

> YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the
 garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand

 Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo ?

Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston ???

> We are still talking of the same YOU..

> YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries
but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on
 the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved
 and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the same here in India ?

> Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay ,
 Mr. Tinaikar , had a point to make. 'Rich people's dogs are walked on
 the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,' he said. 'And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the
 authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements.

What do they expect the officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels?

In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan .

Will the Indian citizen do that here?' He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility.

> We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do
 everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin.
> We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms. 
> We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least  opportunity.
This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public.

When it comes to burning social issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home.

> Our excuse?

 > 'It's the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my sons' rights to a dowry.' So who's going to change the system? What does a system consist of ? Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbor's, other households, other cities, other communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU.

When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the
 system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away.

Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system.

When New York becomes insecure we run to England.

When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf.

When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and  brought home by the Indian government.

Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.
> Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a   greatdeal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too.... I am echoing J. F. Kennedy 's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians.....


Lets do what India needs from us.

Thank you,
Dr. Abdul Kalaam
