BOMB AND GUN POLITICS IN AMERICA:

US FEDERAL authorities made an arrest on Friday in connection with bombing campaign against the outspoken critics of President Trump.

The suspected person arrested is Cesar Sayoc .jr 56 resident of Aventura ,Florida.

Sayoc ,a registered Republican ,with a criminal record dating back to 1991that includes drug charges, felony theft apart from threatening to use a bomb.

As much as thirteen packages of pipe bombs were sent to the residences of the prominent Democratic figures including President Barack Obama ,vice president Joe Biden , former CIA director John Brennan and the offices of CNN.

His arrest did not end the threat unleashed on the leaders of the Democrats as per FBI director Christopher wray. He opined other packages with piped bombs could be “still in transit “.

Sayoc if convicted could be sentenced to 48 years in prison as per FBI officials.

President Trump  addressing  the   Reporters  in Washington.

 

 PresidentTrump reacted casually through his tweet “ republicans are doing so well in the early voting (in mid term elections) ,and at the polls ,and now this ”bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows—news not talking politics” Trump said further “very unfortunate, what is going on .Republicans go out and vote”.

He further blamed the media for its “negative and often times false attacks and stories”.

But later on Friday just waking up from the voting delirium Trump said “ I have instructed authorities to spare no resource or expense to finding those responsible and bringing them to swift and certain justice”.

President Trump clarified he knows the pipe bomb suspect was one of his many supporters but said he did not bear “the blame’. Trump later pledged to prosecute those responsible for the pipe bomb scare “to the fullest extent of the law”

A travesty and tragedy that the prominent leaders of Democrats are facing grave threats from a registered liberal sycophant without any firm determined condemnation of the attack from the President Trump .

No doubt adversarial relationship with political opposition , a norm of present day democracies, but Donald Trump’s vitriol against his opponents is seemingly both vindictive and virulent . It is definitely not conducive for an oldest democracy of America standing as a model representative democracy.

The world looks to British and America as guide for the successful perpetuation of their fragile upcoming democracies.

But Trump has scant respect for the Institutions that stand for the will of the people in open and transparent manner.                                                                Source NYT,REUTER

Bombs Mailing history.

According to Beverly Gage ,a professor of History at Yale ,around May Day 1910 a spate of bombswere sent in identical packages to targets like John .D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan ,Attorney General A.Mitchell Palmer, Cout Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, and a dozen others prominent figures.

Among the first to receive the bombs was Seattle Mayor Ole Hanson perceived as enemy to labour.

As per Gage “it was a a coordinated mail bomb campaign with a political intent ,as united states was caught in political turmoil” .

 

The people behind the bombs were left wing radicals. Though nobody was prosecuted at that time in 1919,but supposition was correct .

The followers of Italian anarchist Luigi Galleani were behind the more damaging bombings of june 2 1919,when explosive devices were placed in eight American cities simultaneously.

The June 1919 bombings, Palmer Raids , led to the mass arrests of radicals across America.

There are plenty of differences between this week’s attempted bombings and those of 1919. The event from a century ago was probably perpetrated by a group;

The present political rivalry is simply less of a problem now than it once was. There have certainly been major incidents of violence in recent American history, but in different connotation than in the past.                                                               Source Time

 

Guns of America

The guns of America boom all across at the whim and will of the shooter, killing innocents in large numbers .

The gun culture has made inroads at alarming proportions in the recent past.

With 265million guns under 227 year old constitutional rights, 35000 deaths a year, the guns boom boom and boom without any respite.

On October 27th at least 11 persons were killed ,six seriously injured in Pittsburgh synagogue ,the killer hollering “All Jews must die” at a Saturday services .

The public safety director Wendell Hissrich described the hate crime in these words “ it is a very horrific crime scene ,one of the worst I have seen, and I have been on plane crashes”.

The federal Bureau leading probe into this horrific crime.

The killer Robert Bower 46, who was taken into custody.

The synagogue was holding a Shabbat religious service at that time and the worshippers ran helter skelter as the killer shot with AR15rifle and hand guns.

The synagogue would have nearly 40/50worshippers at the time of shooting. The attack took place at the baby naming ceremony. As per Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

President Trump said that “Pittsburgh synagogue killing had nothing to do with gun law, the killings could have been prevented if there was an armed guard inside the building.” When people do such heinous crime they should get “death penalty”.He told reporters who asked about a possible link to US gun law.

CONCLUSIONS

October has been somewhat unlucky month of the year for USA for last couple of years.

Exactly the same time on Sunday 17th October 2017, a lone shooter Stephen Paddock fired a barrage of bullets on music lovers at Vas Lagos , a crowd of 22000 concertgoers killing 59 instantly and injuring nearly 500 in ghastly incident.

President Trump ,naive and egomaniac at times ,should  do a deep introspect of the events involving Bomb threat and arbitrary killings in the past and the recent one of Pittsburgh synagogue , understand the implications thereby and take steps to resolve the issues and not abjure responsibility of the security and safety of American people.

President Trump needs to shed off his vindictive approach towards the opposition and not caste aspersions on the integrity of their leaders in the interest of a homogenous united states.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMPOWERMENT OF HUMAN RIGHTS TO GIRLS OF THE WORLD.

11th October 2012 was declared and inaugurated as International Day of Girls by the United General Assembly and is being celebrated with great fervour to instil confidence and empower the Girls of the world with education and skills of employment .

The situation as on today we need to know and contribute our mite to improve the prospects of girls power to an independent respectable lives.

A / 98 million girls drop out of secondary schools.

B/ About 12 million girls are married before the age of 18 every year.

C/ Approximately 6,500 to 7000 adolescent girls (aged 15 to 24) get infected with HIV every week.

Hence looking at the above statistics available, suggests the grave situation, and needs concrete steps to   arrest the rot and improvise on continuous basis till the problem is completely eradicated.

According to the United Nations the day “ aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges the girls face while promoting girls’ empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights.”

Global Girls Alliance

Yesterday on International Day of the Girl, Michelle Obama said “ I’m proud to announce the Obama Foundation’s launch of the Global Girls Alliance, an effort to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, so that they can support their families, communities, and countries.

 Michille  Obama with Girls of the world

When adolescent girls around the world are educated, amazing things start to happen. Poverty goes down, economies grow, families get stronger, babies are born healthier, and the world, by all accounts, gets better. But progress doesn’t happen overnight.

That is why the Obama Foundation’s Global Girls Alliance program is teaming up with GoFundMe to encourage people around the world to take action in support of girls education. We are providing a platform for grassroots leaders to seek funding for projects that can break down the physical, cultural, and financial walls that keep adolescent girls from getting an education and fulfilling their potential.”

A skilled Girl Force , one more Independant Organization,

is working hard to bring together partners and stakeholders together to absolve most pressing needs to train the girls for right skills to take up gainful employment .

This is stupendous task as 600 million adolescent girls will walk into the world’s workforce in the next 10 years. With 90% of those from the developing countries ,where low pay ,exploitation and human trafficking are some of the other challenges to be addressed to simultaneously.

The Govt Of India under illustrous PM Mr Nrender Modi has ,for instance ,started an ambitious campaign “Beti Bachao Beti Padav” a few years back to empower girls with education and safe environment to be economically independent and thus leading progressive lives to build a prosperous strong nation.

Girls are moving neck to neck to men in almost all walks of life to alleviate the poverty of the masses.

It is worth mentioning here that India as Country has been fighting the menace of conservative coercive social dogmatic male dominated society to enforce girls and boys both for free education through different Government Schemes since Independence itself resulting in the upliftment of vast educated women work force in all sections of society.

It is better to quote our great leader ISTPrime Minister Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru , who revered women power as essential to propel the society and Nation to great  heights.

Pt Nehru said ” the condition of Nation can be explained by looking at the status of women /girl.”

Conclusions

Every individual across the world can make a difference by associating one way or the other to embolden the spirit of Girls’ power to make a better beautiful world.

Some of the following actions could be thought of.

  1. With Social media on the upsurge one can easilyassociate with accounts of Girls saving organisations .

One prominent organization is Global Fund For Women    ,an organization investing in resources in women oriented movements. One can contribute monetarily or otherwise to work in different schemes for educatingskill improvement of Girls.

  1. .Relate the amazing great stories of your family women members to the next generation to induce and motivate them n for doing better in theirlives. . Quote their bright achievements as examples to excel. Grandmothers stories can be great tranquilisers.
  2. Yank out your old albums and frame some outstanding photos of your illustrious forefathers to apprise your girls boys of their valour stories.
  3. Be a philontropist.

Always be sporty to donate a small sum for the welfare of Girls and women organizations of world repute. Your small mite may contribute to the fortunes of many.

  1. Make a resolution to fight for the safety of Girls and women from sexual beasts. Rape is a great menace in the society of the world ,why not to address it seriously through by highlighting the causes at the national international forums.

According to the recent research from the university of Essex ,the more you nag your daughter the more successful she  will be in her life.

The nagging from primary parents, Father or Mother only can be more effective to achieve successful results .Expressing high expectations leads to more successful careers.

So be a positive Parent.

 

 

 

MY FORSAKEN LOVE

There is no one left to love me

Into deep woods

Pass by the tall deodars

amongst the fragrance of

Daffodils, rambling roses, dewy dandelions

to

Seek my forsaken

love

Lonely I

drift around the placid brooks

With

a number of rooks

Perched

On the dense shrubs

Surrounding the rivulets .

Listening to the

Coo

of

cuckoo wren lark

lonely I

 drift around on and on

the crumpled leaves marshy verdure

watching the Nature’s magnificient

treasure

dark clouds looming overhead

the evening slipping into night

presenting a bewitching sight

lonely I

drift around to

Seek my forsaken

love.

engulfing

everything comfortable and

warm

life and love cannot live without

churlish and charming

soft and sugary

THE PARADISE LOST

The turquoise shimmering waters ,snow capped mountains ,dense forests and glorious flora and fauna of Kashmir –– the Paradise lost to Kashmiri Pandits, who were victims of ethnic cleansing from the valley by the Pakistani terrorists aided and abetted by pro Pakistani elements within the valley ,killing more than thousand of innocent Pandits way back in Dec 1989 and early 1990.

The phenomenon is repugnant of grave atrocities inflicting gruesome violence upon the women, thereby bruising and hurting the pride of the community .

The Kashmiri Pandits were left with no option than to flee the valley to become refugees in their own country.

In Jammu ,the Pandits were not welcome .

The locals feared that being upright and intelligent community ,they would usurp the jobs especially government ones of the locals.

When some migrant medical students ,numbering around85 , were re-admitted in the Jammu Medical college ,the locals grouped together and went on a flash strike supported by BJP. The strike lasted for two weeks.

The BJP local leaders declared that Kashmiri Pandits could live in Jammu as “Guests” only and issued a warning to the then Union Home Minister Mufti Sayeed and the Governor Mr G.C Saxena against the further influx of Kashmiri Pandits into Jammu.

Majority of Kashmiri pandits eventually settled in all Indian states .

However Maharashtra ,Karnataka were two states to welcome Kashmiri pandits offering admissions in professional colleges and with basic facilities for resettlement.

Delhi and other adjoining states followed the suite to receive and provide means to settle Pandits in large numbers.

 

Now after nearly 30 years of wilderness ,majority of  Pandits believe that their birthland ,Kashmir, a paradise , is lost for ever.

 

The National Political Parties are playing blame game and not paying any heed to the question of rehabilitation of Pandits in the valley.

The Parties like National Conference and PDP are in doldrums for their vacillating policy on the Kashmir impasse.

The move to boycott the Urban and Panchayat polls by both PDP and National Conference is defeat for both ,the centre and the main regional parties ,as the ultimate goal lies in fostering better relationship between Srinagar and New Delhi.

In absence of the main leaders ,Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti ,the centre hopes that new leaders may emerge from the grass roots to challenge the hegemony of these leaders.

A large number of Kashmiri Pandits in sheer desperation ,bitterness , and harbouring a feeling of being left out by the Congress in the hour of distress, inched towards BJP.

Reposing faith in the rheotrics of Prime Minister Narender Modi who addressed  a rally in Samba in December 2014,pledging to the settlement of Pandits in the valley.

 

There afterwards  Prime Minister Narender Modiji and his entourage Mr Amit Shah

maintained a stoic silence on the issue todate.

 

Consequently Pandits feel cheated and have no recourse to give vent to their feelings.

By now it must be clear  to all  that going back on the promises pledges made  as hardly surprising.

The Pandits do not count a vote bank for any Political Party as such. The number is so minuscule to attract any attention.

 The question of rehabilitation was an easy trap to wean away Pandits from the strong fold of Congress.

It is foregone conclusion that BJP is going to use the same rhetoric for Pandits in the 2019 elections. as well.

The exodus Pandit Card is being used by the Central Govt to browbeat Pakistan in International forums like UN ,SAARC, Etc. and nothing else.

Conclusion;

 Pandit’s Dilemma

Much water has flown under the seven Jhelum bridges since 1989/90.

Apparently under the prevailing circumtances the situation is not conducive for the Pandits to go back to the valley.

All of us know that the situation is worse than what was in 1990.

The youth of Kashmir being radicalized by the masterminds of terrorism in Pakistan is posing a grave threat to the peace in the valley. The policy of repression followed by the Govt of India may have added more fuel to the rise of violence and need concrete  strategy to douse the fire of vengeance.

The lives of even reticent peace loving Kashmiri Muslim are  miserable who  otherwise are eager to seek peace and tranquility . They need to muster courage to stand up against the militants and help the Central authorities to thwart the   acts of violence.

 

Due to lack of definite policy,strategy The militants across the border have been killing both Army and the J&K police personnel in large numbers every day.

The recent gruesome killing of Policemen, Nissar Ahmad, and SPOs Firdous Ahmad, and Kulwant singh in Batagund and adjoining areas of Shopian

has shaken the 1.2 lakh strong contingent of Jammu and Kashmir police force, with six SPOs announcing their resignations on social media.

The abrogation of Article 370 may prompt Kashmiri Pandits to move to the valley for good.

But who has the courage and determination to do it.

The BJP, being in opposition hollered from the roof tops for doing away with the Article 370 ,but now in power for more than 4 years lacks the lion’s courage to implement it.

The muscular military policy persuaded by the Centre has yielded no positive results so far .

 

The truth stands only reconciliation on give and take basis between New Delhi and Srinagar can cement the relations permanently.

The wait for permanent settlement of Kashmiri Pandits seems long one, as very few acknowledge the pain suffered by them.

 

MY STORY Journey Of challenges:

 

We live to die. A fact one cannot deny or decry.

Life moves on ineluctably thus cannot be arrested or released at will. Life is a journey of strife beset with challenges every now and then.

you need to cross over the boulders , overcome the hurdles and make it smoother by actions ,right ones, correct decisions ,and right attitude . Once faced boldly it becomes harbinger of happiness and prosperity.

A concerted effort making things to happen the way you would love to see your life moving with pleasure than pain.

Way back in early 1970’s I happened to work as Quality assurance Manager in a Glass company in Pimpri Pune .

One fine morning our M.D. Mr Agarwal called me in his office ,and after making me to sit comfortably, said softly

“ Kaul being my best man I need your help to straighten things in our glass plant at Rishikesh .”

After a pause for a second he continued “we are not getting good production there both quantity as well as quality .

Due to bad quality the consignments get rejected. With your expertise and experience I want you to proceed to Rishikesh immediately to set the things right.”

“ there is my Manager Mr Thadani he will give you all assistance .” He said with an air of finality.

“ I have some questions sir ” I said a bit nervously.

“Yes tell me” Mr Agarwal said firmly.

“Sir I have heard Mr Thadani is not a good man. Will he cooperate with me.” I asked timidly.

 

“He is my Manager .I have directed him to listen to you and your expertise.” He retorted angrily. “You will report to me directly and send me production quality reports daily through telegrams . I am giving you a letter and give it to Thadani. Do not worry. I trust you and God will guide you .”

“Meet Kane , Plant Manager in his office, he will do the needful for your travel etc” He concluded the meeting affectionately reassuring me about his support to me.

In a huff I went straight to see my friend Tapkir , Mould Manager and we discussed at length the pros and cons of my conversation with M.D MR Agarwal.

“ you cannot do much than to proceed quietly. It may open new vistas for your future. Who knows.” Mr Tapkir said confidently.

So mentally prepared I decided to move to Rishikesh .

On 16th july 1974 Pune looked gorgeous with drizzling all along and the green verdure on the hills surrounding the city, was really a delight to watch. I developed a strange close association with this beautiful city .Ipromised with myself if God wishes I would like to come again to reside in this city of love and compassion.

I boarded a Taxi for Mumbai with other three passengers from Taxi stand and we zoomed on in the wet rainy weather. The downpour was incessant since last night and the sky overcast with dark clouds. The Sun was seen nowhere .

The taxi driver was tall burly sikh , very affable but talkative. He was casting furtive glances intermittently, talking consistently .one of my fellow passenger warned him to drive carefully in this inclement weather.” Hello sardarji drive carefully as the roads are slippery” he said sounding scared and anxious.

“ no worry sir keep cool .” the sikh driver retorted back.

He drove off without caring a hoot for the aggrieved passenger.

The rains were profusely pouring and pouring ,the hill tops covered with green carpets exhibiting a bewitching spectacle all around. There were a number of waterfalls gushing water into deep ravines down.

No sooner we crossed the plains and moved into Ghat area the driver took a sharp turn to negotiate the bend ,lost control of the stirring wheels and inched down the ravine close by . The door flung open I somersaulted out on to the green patch some two three feet down from the highway.

I watched the taxi going down the ravine into the gorge deeper in a great awe.

As providence would have it I escaped unhurt not even a bruise anywhere.

The crowd came in twos threes ,helped me to safety on   the main road . one of them offered me water,the other a cup of tea, and said “ Thank God you are safe. Do you want to go to Mumbai.”

“ Yes I have to go to Mumbai to catch a train for Rishikesh”

I replied gasping for breath.

 

“My suitcase with clothes , bag etc gone . The ticket for onward journey was in my upper pocket ,lost somewhere ” I replied in a state of delirium.

I rummaged into my inner small pocket of my Pantaloon and found my money safe. “God is great” I murmurred to myself.

The good men arranged a lift for me to Mumbai in a private car and I reached safely Mumbai.

“ will you sir drop me near Railway station so that I could board the onward train.” I pleaded to the car owner.

“yes no problem. You also buy some new shirt as the one you are wearing is torn and dirty .” He said nonchalantly.

 

I went to the railway Manager explained the predicament I was in and he managed to issue me ticket to Hardwar , the nearest station to Rishikesh.

I boarded the Train finally for onward journey to my destination.

I had nightmares about the horrible accident ,woke up twice during the night ,crying. The other passengers looking surprised.

I closed my eyes determined to empty my mind of everything and went into a deep slumber at last.

Next morning the train chugged on to the Hardwar Railway station and I thanked God to be alive to live up to the expectations of my M.D Mr Agarwal.

Interestingly later on after a month or so  to my  surprise I received  an envelop containing letter from the Taxi driver  followed by M.O for Rs  65 / towards the  encashment of my ticket he managed to collect from the accident scene.

His  exemplary sincerity and honesty stunned me  but also felt proud to see India living  and thriving on due to the good deeds of  such noble unknown souls.
