Baba Ramdev: Generalissimo

of The War Against Corruption

All the pathetic and desperate attempts made by the Prime Minister and senior Cabinet Ministers of the supremely corrupt UPA II Government of India to confuse, coax, cajole and coerce Yogrishi Baba Ramdev to call off his fast-unto-death at Ramlila Maidan on 4th June 2011 have failed.

A 2.5 lakh square feet waterproof tent has been erected on Ramlila Maidan and massive cut-outs of Baba Ramdev have been put up around it. About 250 labourers were giving final touches at the protest site. This tent can accommodate more than 30,000 people. The Pioneer, New Delhi, has reported that Ramlila Maidan has located in the heart of the national Capital is virtually turning into ‘Ramdev Nagri’ ahead of Baba Ramdev’s proposed satyagraha from June 4.

Sonia's Congress UPA II coalition is the only Government of post-Independent India which has been subjected to the infamy and indignity of being monitored by the Supreme Court of India in respect of the criminal case filed by the CBI against the former Union Telecom Minister A. Raja.

The Chairman of the Coordination Committee of these large scale looting operations is the Italian Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi. This disgraceful Bandito (means bandit in Italian) Government nay, Kleptocracy, got frightened out of its wits when the Hindu Dharmacharya Baba Ramdev announced his decision to go on a fast-unto-death against Bhrashtachaar (Corruption) and Kaala-Dhan (Black Money). Baba Ramdev declared that he had interacted with and influenced 100 Million people and convinced them to take up the fight against whole scale government corruption and public looting held abroad illegally. 

According to Shri Deivamuthu Editor of Hindu Voice:

“The Congress is not at all afraid of Anna Hazare as he is not a political threat. The Congress is frightened  of Baba Ramdev as he is a powerful political threat. Baba Ramdev is forming a political party and is going to challenge the Congress at the next parliamentary election. The Congress (like the Britishers in 1880s) was on the look out for a buffer and Anna Hazare (like MK Gandhi) has fit the bill. So he was promoted with the help of an obliging media and multinational companies waiting to take revenge of Baba Ramdev.” 

Unlike Anna Hazare, who went on a fast to push the specific demand of a joint drafting committee for the Lok Pal Bill, Baba Ramdev’s demands are wide-ranging and ambitious. The yoga guru wants black money stashed abroad to be brought back and declared a national asset. He wants the death penalty for corruption. He wants the demonitization of currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination. He is in favour of a substantial increase in the minimum support price for grains. He wants wages of different categories of labourers to be uniform across the country, besides a pro-farmer Land Acquisition Bill. He is strongly in favour of the introduction of Hindi medium in medical and technical colleges, etc. Finally he wants the introduction of a Law which will ensure a Minimum Public Service Guarantee at all levels for all the citizens of India.

Anna Hazare has stated today that he would like to associate himself with Baba Ramdev's hunger strike on June 4, 2011. The Civil Society has expressed its total backing for Baba Ramdev’s fast againsy corruption and black-money. Anna Hazare said he would join Ramdev at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, where he is to sit on a fast-unto-death protest, on Sunday, the 5th of June 2011, emphasising that there was no divide in the civil society on the issue of corruption. To the total discomfiture of the UPA II Government of India, Anna Hazare has said: “I will support Ramdev so that the government does not do what it did to me when we were fighting. I and Baba Ramdev will fight together against corruption.” 

Based on his own bitter personal experience of dealing with the thuggee double-dealing and back-stabbing Sonia Congress UPA II government, Anna Hazare has also warned Baba Ramdev that he should not be swayed by the feigned overtures made by the government saying it often plays "fraud" by first agreeing to demands and then backing out without any scruple of conscience.

I fully endorse the views of bold and fearless web-journalist Vijayan, Chennai, which he has communicated to me through e-mail:

“What Baba Ramdev and the new ICS, Indian Civil Society should now demand is –

1. Immediate seizure and forfeit of all the assets, fixed and liquid, of known crooks like Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, Andiputty Raja, Maran Brothers, Kurunanidhi, Cunnymozhi, TR Balu, Kalmadi, Hasan Ali, - including all their “benamis”, “relatives” and Bureucratic henchmen. We will give an exhaustive List of Prime Offenders if demanded.

2. Trial and public execution by hanging or a firing squad of all the Main Offenders named within six months. This will ensure Clean and Corruption-free Governance for at least a decade, by which time another Corrupt Gen-Next should be ready to go on the rampage. There Is No Alternative!”

The Political Parties like the BJP, the Janata Party and the SP have expressed their total support for the fast-unto-death campaign of Baba Ramdev against overweening corruption and overarching black money tucked away in safe coffers in India and abroad. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), hailed by the BBC as the biggest cultural Non Governmental Organization in the world, has also expressed its total solidarity with the larger national objectives and goals of baba Ramdev’s people’s movement against Corruption and Black Money. This endorsement by the RSS has sent shivers of trepidation and fear through the tottering and crumbling edifice of the most corrupt and most venal Sonia-controlled UPA II Government in New Delhi.
If only the Roman Catholic lady of Irish origin and formerly President of the Indian National Congress Dr Annie Besant (1847-1933), had been alive today, she would have whole-heartedly approved of the Hindu Dharmaacharya Baba Ramdev’s Dharm Yuddh against the gargantuan Alpine Italian corruption in India’s public life today. Dr Annie Besant had said: “India was born, as it were, in the womb of Hinduism, and her body was for long shaped by that religion.” 

Perhaps Dr Annie Besant was thinking of people like Baba Ramdev when she said: “He is a man in whom divinity is unfolded, who has gradually and slowly opened out, and made manifest the god within. He has trodden the ordinary path of man, and then climbed the steeper path, which rises to what, in modern days, has been called the superman, the superhuman state, where human perfection is accomplished.”

Comment Hysterical outbursts do not erase corruption but hide the same under confusion and cacaphony! It can destabilise a Nation. Calculation, calm and methodical approach can uproot ailing evil ...

Comment At the start I would like to take the readers back in time to the mid 40's. The second world war had ended; Japan, Germany, France, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands etc were devastated.

These countries started building from scratch and today are the economic powerhouses of Asia and Europe. India gained independence two years later that enabled her leaders to take decisions to build our beloved nation. And what did we do. The disparity between europe, japan vis a vis India is for all to see.

I pointed out in one of my previous articles of how a miniscule (0.2%) of people have managed to rule India without having any stake in this nation. This situation is similar to the situation that existed in Iran during the rule of the Shah. There was seeting resentment amongst the masses; corruption was unprecedented and the populace saw no way out of this stiffling situation.

It was then that religious leaders took the lead; the Shah was overthrown.

A similar movement appears to have started here in India; but unlike that in Iran where the support came from the rural folks, the one in India has the support of the mass of the middle class also and which is estimated to be around 27% of the population.

MMS will go down in history as one of the most incompetent individuals occupying the august chair of the PM. He appears to be blinded by the aura of power that came with the office. What will unseat him will not be very likeable.
The final unseating could be like the "Worst First Date" story narrated to Jay Leno by a girl and which goes as follows -

"She said it was midwinter...Snowing and quite cold... And the guy had taken her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City , Utah. It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and had never met before.

The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon.

They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte. They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for awhile. Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point where she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car.

They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started. In the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself.

Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.

Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem, due to the extreme cold.

Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor of the moment, she answered her date's concerns about' what is taking so long' with a reply that indeed, she was 'freezing her butt off' and in need of some assistance! He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma.

Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem. Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free.

So, as she looked the other way, her first-time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender'

Only this time it could be the other way around !
