GLIMPSES from LIFE & Times of BABA BAKHORAN DASS –Waiver of Farm Loans

 

 

This refers to various episodes political tamaasha by our Bhagyavidhaatas resting with latest meet by RaGa & Co. with NaMo & Co. on debt waiver initiatives by the political arrangement of Mera Bhaarat Mahaan (MBM).

 

Readers are requested to correct Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD), if he is wrong.  During our days of active physical and mental functioning, it was Late A.R. Antule in Maharashtra made this innovation. He may be termed as the opening batsman of this game. Thereafter Late Ms Nadini Satpathy in Orissa wished to follow. She was given strict NO by Late Indira Priyadarshini. Then during early seventies the then dispensation took exercise for the benefits of ex-servicemen settlers of Campbell bay in Andaman & Nicobar Islands. To the best knowledge and belief of BBD, this was a true example of real debt waiver. Now it has become a POLITICAL GAME and an effort to corrupt the minds of larger section of society and a tool to buy the voters.

 

Incidentally, BBD has got a gut feeling that Late Gajendra Singh Rajawat of Rajasthan has had paid the price of his got gifted wonderful personality and was a victim a perfect photo-shoot. His death at Jantar Mantar New Delhi showed us yet again the eagerness of all political parties to score brownie points, unmindful of the fact that our economic policies have failed to ensure a better life for our annadata. All parties are behaving as if this causality exemplified the present situation the present situation of the farmers in the country. Irrespective of the party in the government in various states, lakhs of farmers have ended their lives to escape the challenges staring their face ONLY because they opted for farming as their profession. BBD feels that if at all any humanity is left among the polity of this country, sensitivity of the public administration, and factual rule of the law, the entire episode of Late Gajendra Singh Rajawat be thoroughly investigated from all angles to arrive at logical conclusion under fast tract system to restore faith in our system. An amicable solution to the menace of loss of human life of the people (statistically most of them are illiterate and distressed).

 

Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) was going through a judgment dated 14.12.2010 by the Hon’ble Supreme court of India in an appeal arising out of SLP (Crl.) No. 2614 of 2009 and somewhere he read “….From the beginning of human history government has been recognized as the overall holder and regulatory of power, maintaining order by limiting all other expressions of power and thereby turning permitted powers into rights. In that concept lay the rudiments of the principles of government. In every age men have sought to clarify the application of these principles to the changing times. In every age the abuse of power by governments has led to disasters and uprisings, oppressions and vainglorious wars, and sometimes to experiments in the control of power, seeking to make it responsible, or more responsible, subject in some manner to the will of the people, of the majority or those who represented them.”

 

The concluding paragraph of the said judgment pinpoints the role of the then Hon’ble Chief Minister and had condemned him in no uncertain terms. Such serious judicial condemnation did not cast any shadow on the career of the then Hon’ble Chief Minister. He merrily continued in the Union cabinet. None – he himself, his party or the Hon’ble the then Prime Minister suffered any moral pang.

 

This is pathetic to observe how our politicians are accountable to farmeINR Will the sudden demise of Late Gajendra Singh Rajawat in the heart of National capital and infront of a serving young CHIEF MINISTER (with such huge mandate) bring accountability in the political system

 

How unfortunate, when a human being in the heart of National Capital in front of History Creator Hon’ble Chief Minister, surrounded by thousands hands – kills himself , and we call MERA BHARAT Mahaan!

 

Late Shri Gajendra Singh Rajawat, was going to be given a status of martyr by fresh air politicians. To BBD, it was an effort to insult the farming community by glorifying such act and may be triggering effect for further causalities. To the best of knowledge and belief, AK67 has himself seen the farmers’ initiative to manage farming under distress. He himself has experienced Ralegaon Siddhi and Hiwre Bazaar in Maharashtra. Now, being the powerful public figure, how come he becomes so insensitive!

 

BBD very respectfully, begs to re-iterate following points to all and sundry – particularly those in powers (social/political/financial and so on …..)

  • Please do not exhibit you power to raise the passion, which you cannot control.
    • Let the people be educated properly – particularly on soil and water management. STOP giving FREE WATER/ELECTRICITY, and don’t glorify such act of suicide by making the victim as martyrs.
    • Analyze the data of National Crime Records Bureau on suicides and don’t hide your face like an ostrich. Face it in the best national interest.
    • Revisit the recommendations of Ojha Committee (Cotton growers of Andhra Pradesh), and examine as to why SAA was so mercilessly killed. If feasible redraft the same under changed scenario and implement.
    • Understand abuse of chemicals in Agriculture, whether it is Pithoria near Ranchi in Jharkhand or Nawashahr in Punjab.
    • Have courage to find reasons as to why institutional credit to farm sector has increased so astronomically while available land had decreased and so the farm production (not in any acceptable ratio).
    • Have courage to find link between endebtness and consumption of alcohol.
    • Have courage to examine the growth of loans against Jewels (particularly Farm Loans against Jewels) any impact on Kissan Credit Card business growth.
    • Have courage to examine as to whether there may be reason for availing Debt swap through institutional channel, even after more than decades of lending made so cheap and so liberal.
    • Have test check on end-utilisation of outflow of KCC limits.
    • Make sincere efforts and incentivize SHG concept of NABARD.
    • Restore transfer of technology, and agricultural extension education programmes – (make efforts as to who is doing and how effective they are)!
    • Examine the efforts and results of Israel for implementation. Enough of SF/MF/AL culture of protectionism. Make them in groups to work in cooperation to avoid fragmentation of holding.

GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of BABA BAKHORAN DASS === Demonetization – aftereffect

 

Thanks to Shri Satyaveer Singh an ex Fauzi and a true entrepreneur of his own class, who gave BBD an honour to witness the 11th Annual day function of a school which he and his wife Ms Sarita Rani are managing at Village Bhikanpur in Kanth Tehsil of Moradabad district. Shri L. Venkatshwarlu IAS the Divisional Commissioner of Moradabad was the Chief Guest, Shri Mahendra Singh Arora the present Chairman of Prathama Bank of the Guest of honor and Shri Bijoy Kumar Pandit ex Chairman of Prathama Bank and Ex General Manager of Syndicate Bank was the guest of honour. It was wonderful work by the entire team of Rajendra’s Academy and bore the signature of management and execution of an ex-serviceman and their family members.

 

The address of Shri Venkakatshwarlu was quite emotional and an expression of a well qualified administrator with a kind heart and concern for the nation. But, most amazing, interesting, or a bit disgusting part was that when he concluded his views with an appeal to villagers with a majority of young people – people started shouting MODI MODI MODI. Poor Divisional Commissioner, who made a simple appeal to use the power of franchise with noble cause to elect a good leader (the appeal did not have any political bias.

 

While on way to Moradabad, the BBD found people in queue in front of all Bank branches/ATMs well before Sunrise in the chill. Even after lapse of more than 25 days, there is no sign to find the queue getting shorter. Yes, there is some unique situation during this time, but when all was well, BBD as General Manager of a small Bank used to get baffled as to where this currency was going. When there was no control of movement of cash in the erstwhile Moradabad and Rampur districts of Ummidon ka Pradesh, the banking statistics did not support the theory of recharge and discharge or otherwise. One of the indications of the situation led to HOARDING. This time also, BBD feels that nobody is trying to educate the aam aadmi – rather trying to confuse and create panic. Our attitude towards NATION FIRST will be distant dream, and will inflict wound in our body and will go on licking it. Instead of understanding the factual position, we go by perception and invite trouble for ourselves. We simply believe in following stupid politico knowing pretty well that they only exploit, whether it is in a small group or in large group. Are we such fools or behave like that in a group – but pretty intelligent individually?

 

An effort is made by BBD to understand the whole scenario. Based upon common sense of an ex Banker having bias towards rural clientele BBD feels that the present dispensation could not asses the factual position of BLACK Money and FCN. They may be much more than gestimate. May be some smarter people got it back to their kitty during these days through ‘always ready for such stupid things’ type of aam aadmi, or corrupt minds in administration process. There is well groomed perception that only URBAN elite have BLACK MONEY, all small rural people are pious and clean. Experience of BBD finds that majority of us are hypocrat and pretend to be honest. BBD had experience of exploitation of hapless citizen by right from illiterate village Pradhan, semi literate rickshaw puller, Bank personnel to administrative set up. If Cash based economy is allowed to continue, you will never come to know that. BBD compares this situation with the script of recently released Hindi movie KAHAANI-2 Vidya Rani Singh. The BLACK MONEY is a reality of a child’s sexual abuse even in rural area. Along with other vices of the society hidden beneath the carpet, currency based economy is a real vice.

 

While BBD is fully convinced that if we the people do not switch to cashless economy, the queue infront of ATM/Bank branches will not be shortere even after a decade.

 

The present dispensation has taken a big risk. Only God can say, whether we will change and make our future bright or are leading towards anarchy or civil unrest. The system prevalent including political politicians, bureaucrats, and above all, we the people with very high sentiments and double standard will learn lesson for the sake of future of our GEN-NEXT, will think in the lines of NaMo or BBD is ANDHBHAKT?

 

Incidentally, we curse the politicians but shout Zindabaad Zindabaad next moment! What an irony or the sentiments of a confused persona called BBD? Any solace to BBD to understand the true sentiments of aam aadmi?

GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of BABA BAKHORAN DASS -Signs of NaMoNia

BBD just came out of the multiplex at RDC Rajnagar Ghaziabad, after enjoying a wonderful movie KAHAANI2 – a Vidya Balan starrer. In the upbeat mood, BBD wished to enjoy some roadside junk food and just by accident found a paani poori wala, having a true entrepreneurial quality on a hand driven cart. Per plate INR 20 for 6 different flavors. It was again excellent experience. Although ambiance not so good, but hygiene and quality was really good. But, most appealing part was that the vendor was accepting cashless transaction through PAYTM.

This was really nice to experience the mood of aam aadmi. My preferred Bank branch was just few steps away where good number of customers were asking for debit card. BBD recalled his tenure as Branch Head of Dhanbad Main, where distribution of debit cards were done by some force, as people were not interested in using ATM.

BBD finds now amazing development. As an ex Banker BBD knows well the true  and factual sincerity of Financial Inclusion initiatives of his counterparts. Then it was DBT initiatives in LPG distribution. Now this demonetization initiatives.

Hats off NaMo.

Is it a sign of NaMoNia?

GLIMPSES from LIFE & Times of BABA BAKHORAN DASS -Wail of a widow === CHARACTER OF WE THE PEOPLE

Today is 26/11.  Let me start with conveying my respectful homage to Hemant Karkare, Ashok Kamte, Vijay Salaskar, Sandip Unnikrishnan, Tukaram Omble and all unknown sacrifices that my country made in very recent past.

My respectful homage to Late Sachchidanad Sinha Advocate for his contributions in shaping our constitution but never got the due that he deserved.

Author of these lines is a classic example of a person suffering from environmental confusion among an aam aadmi of Mera Bharat Mahaan (MBM), and lacks completely in getting the ability to cope up with the situation.

Less than 1000 days back a great Son of Soil (SoS), who is supposed to be well educated, physically, socially, financially and mentally  NOT an aam aadmi but claimed that he is aam aadmi – twitted “My gratitude 2 Delhites for their support. U r so amazing. U rejected politics of caste n religion. Hope final results are as per exit polls”. Now, same man few hours back says “Dy CM of Punjab will be from dalit community.”

These days there are endless discussions, abuses, accusations, sufferings with the issue of black money and demonetization in the background. Today, this aam aadmi(?) had to cough up double fare on public transport (auto rickshaw from Dasna to Govindpuram in Ghaziabad). The reason/justification as claimed by the semi-literate young driver of the auto rickshaw  (factually representing an aam aadmi) was NaMoNia – who feels justified in taking revenge from hapless passenger, because he (the auto rickshaw wala was forced to be in line of a bank branch.

……mera bharat mahaan

Now, the author has taken liberty to share his very personal views on prevailing situations in the society and gets upset as to where are we leading to ? Where are the signs of togetherness, efforts for sab ka saath saab ka vikash or NATION FIRST. All brickbats, abuses and criticism in the worst level of foul language are expected – if not then a big SURPRISE- NO MATTER – you are well placed or otherwise – JUST EXPLOIT the situation for you benefit!

 

GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of BABA BAKHORAN DASS (BBD)- Ek aur Tamaasha mere aage

Our Bhagyavidhaatas irrespective of type or colour of their TOPI, have understood well that we – the people of great India or Mera Bhaarat Mahaan (MBM) are a bunch of people which have developed liking of self inflicted wounds. Theses wounds come in the shape of freebies like Cycle, Laptop, Scooter, TV, Sewing Machines, Debt waiver etc. etc. We are still slaves and like to remain as such. We are unable to have insight that these freebies have another source of income for those in power. We pay the price of being sold.

Factually, the effect of such opium has made us true addict and more dangerous than any drug in the market. It robs our sense to think NATION FIRST.

We have very conveniently forgotten the History of Pataliputra and do not wish to know the true impact of NATION FIRST. We have restricted the efforts of Singh Sahebaan to only one section of the large society. We are simply allowed to think ways and means to divide in the names of caste creed community, and what not? We never made efforts to take lessons from Mahabhaarat.

Our Baapu, Chaachaa & Co. has never told us the factual geography and history. Just after independence from British, we were told through various writing and ways of communications about animosity and reasons for our sufferings. Blame game started on certain section of our own society, as if the His-story which was taught to us was the true History. Even those who were blamed for the miseries were convinced that they are the culprits.

The system which we inherited from the last rulers – British were aimed at keeping the subject mentally slave for convenient administration. The irony is that the sacrosanct Constitution is aimed at democracy, but the administration machinery is implementing democracy through autocracy. At one hand, we have exhibited our strength of democracy, but have become complacent immediately after it. The latest example is post Anna Hazare incidents.

Whenever the vigilant media or vigilant judiciary takes up an issue of adown trodden individual or anybody who have become victim of incident, we start cursing the system. We could not develop the courage to see the true face of the system. It becomes so frustrating that those who raise such issues, when given chance to administer become more insensitive, crueler and more corrupt. Our generation has experienced incidents post 1969 in Bihar, post 1977 in the entire country, post 2014 in Delhi; and post 2016 in Bihar once again.

We are unable to comprehend as to how, when the power in democracy is with ‘we – the people’, how come the administration and the leadership be a corrupt!

Just remember the incident of British Prime Minister Mr. Cameroon – how he left the Office, but in our MBM, even a Ward Commissioner behaves like a feudal King. Mr. Cameroon can vacate the official Quarters without any fuss, but our politicians will find ways means loop holes to remain even after death once government accommodation is provided.

The entire system irrespective of which ideology rules you have got a common agenda as to how to have fun on the cost of public exchequer. If asked any question same stereo type reply will come.

Present day democracy is behaving worst than autocracy. In autocracy at least, few people rob you, but in present day democracy of MBM nobody dares to question to the gang of robbers. We, the people and machinery of administration have become mute spectators.

Recent incidents of Dana Manjhi in Odisha, incident of Mirjapur in U.P where a father in law take his daughter in law to a hospital and incidents thereafter, packing of dead body in Odisha mortuary, dengue deaths in Delhi, and the worst of its kind in Bulandshahr incident does not shake our soul. If any political Tag is attached to you and can play any role in keeping up the interests of the system, then see the hyper sensitivity of the system. Are we not turning into mobocracy?

At one end, we say that we honor the judiciary, then what happens in cases like Shahbano of past and Cauvery of present?

If we are ready to be sold by Debt waiver, free water, free electricity and such freebies, we are allowing ourselves to be robbed by the system. Let us think seriously and keep those Khadag Singhs away. Please remember if we wish that our gene next is not forced to migrate, try to identify and keep such elements away with only one aim NATION FIRST. JAAGO RE

GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) – Create a constituency for division of society at any cost

– LET US IDENTIFY AND ISOLATE SUCH INDIVIDUALS/GROUPS keeping in mind NATION FIRST

Thanks to Zanab Talmiz Ahmad former diplomat for inputs.

Our society is truly a heterogeneous group with some super special politicos who obtain short-term political advantage. They firmly believe in evolving strategies for political instability in the country to pursue their agenda. They have enjoyed since more than 2 decades and flourished leaps and bounds. Now, the change is apparent and have not much to make any issue to take along some section of society. Now, they are making efforts as they know, they can not fulfil the aspirations of their constituency. They are non-transparent and non accountable, and are generally engaged in making association of crony capitalism and corruption of all kind. They are truly intolerant of dissent and provide no scope for factual participation in national policy making and believe in theatrical democracy. These archaic models of democracy are being assembled in a very dangerous proportion at a time when this part of the globe is in state of an economic, political and cultural crisis in which young people, poorly educated and often under/unemployed are crying out for proper and legitimate leadership, guidance and inspiration. Thus frustration among most vulnerable section of society is mounting. These forces first created didision in the society based on faith – Hindus-Muslim, then –Forward/Backward, then SC-ST, then Minority/Majority, then Rural/Urban, then Dalit/Mahadalit. Now, what next Nikrist Dalit or what?
To me, in recent past the victim family of Bulandshahr incident and situation like are the Mahadalit, irrespective of caste tag in which they are borne. I feel amused that those who scream on top decibel of being discriminated by certain section of members of society (mostly by individuals and very rarely as a group of such hyper active mindless people without any logic and at times tutored by vested interests) are the biggest group of castes forces.
The words termed as DALIT makes me sick. Even after passing of more than two generation of independent India, we are unable to find and isolate/prosecute the individual/group who are committing DALAN (you need some persons doing this job to create a Dalit), then what type of administration are we practicising?
We, the people are increasingly unable to see the dividing line between ideological belief and personal nightmares. For, the backgrounds of the purported activists show little of evidence of real issue, faith, zeal, positivity – instead a more forceful picture is that of troubled, angry, lonely and volatile personalities, with confused sexuality, a record of personal, marital and professional failure, uncertain religious identity, and past history of mental instability and petty crime.
Now, certain forces are making efforts with success too, to make this constituency of misfits give them comfort and a sense of purpose which create for them a welcoming “Virtual Community” for channelize their anger into assault on enemies of their faith/community, heritage and identity, and impart them the sense of fulfilling a higher and better future. They are followers of a borderless loyalty.
We have seen, Delhi and Bihar, what NEXT? Gujrat, Goa, Punjab, UP?

GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) – Create a hype without verifying the facts and add to environmental confusion

 

 

Few years back Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) witnessed a funny situation. From Modinagar area one young bank loan aspirant (YBLA) not having faith in banking system, based upon general perception, approached a very powerful political executive of the area. The lady politician referred his application to the Ziladhish for doing the needful. Honourable Ziladhish, after receiving the direction of the political boss referred it to the Branch Head of ADB Muradnagar with a direction “Kripaya inhe reen dein (Please give him loan)”. The young citizen was extremely happy as after spending sufficient man-hours and sufficient money, his efforts appear to be showing signs of getting his dreams fulfilled.

Next day with full of confidence, may be with pinch of arrogance too he barged into the cabin of the Branch Head (BH) of ADB. This gentleman BH had just swallowed few sermons from his wife in the morning for not attending the PTM and ignoring the education of  his own child, followed by daily dose from his boss was about to reconcile mood. Not knowing the background (of personal issues of the BH, and his official obligation of sanction of loan as per his discretion) and bubbling with all vigour, this YBLA put his application fortified with Seal of authority from Political and Administrative heads of the area to the BH. The mood of BH was fastest disposal of the proposal in front of him, the BH put his remarks just beneath the orders of Ziladhish as to “Shriman Ziladhis kripaya apne adhikar kshetra mein hi karein – ye aapke adhikar kshetra ke bahar hai (….please exercise your  powers within your area of authority and this is out of your powers.)   To cut short, this poor YBLA’s aspiration and all his dreams were shattered.

 

Nowadays BBD is experiencing the same hype from a message of Delhi administration which indicates that education loan to all aspirants will be released by the branch of a bank of his/her choice with kind grace of CM of Delhi. BBD is confused. Whether is it possible to fulfill aspirations of YBLA of Delhi? Please update.
