India – Indian Democracy Litmus Test

India Reacts to Status Quo


यह क्या हुआ? कैसे हुआ? कब हुआ? क्यों हुआ?

अब यह तो सोचने वाली बात हो गयी ।

जनता जनार्दन ने बरसाये अपने अंगारे । यह तो होना ही था।

कभी भी आम जनता को कमज़ोर नहीं समझना चाहिए । ना ही उन्हें ठुकराना चाहिए।

यह बात नेता या अभिनेता को समझना चाहिए ।

अब आयी बात समझ में?

कच्चे और पक्के खिलाड़ी को भी समय और करम के सामने झुकना पड़ता है । यही है प्रकृति के नियम। जिसके आगे किसी की मर्ज़ी नहीं चलती ।

हर हर महादेव ! जय माँ दुर्गा !

जय श्री राम !

Har Har Mahadev!  Jai Ma Durga! 

Jai Sri Ram!


Prime Minister Narendra Modi – the head of the ruling political party and BJP government is the first authority in Indian politics to have never held a press conference in the seven years of ruling the nation.

In other words, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has successfully evaded the open public press conference since assuming power as the head of the government in 2014 up until now.

In contrast, PM Narendra Modi’s previous and latest appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2021 confirms the solidarity with behind the scenes operatives on global affairs.

While PM Narendra Modi judiciously complies with World Economic Forum, Davos, Switzerland initiated and implemented Great Reset targeting global finance and economic activities exclusively favoring core stakeholders in the global market share,

The Indian PM Narendra Modi unable to address public grievances and disapproval of the incumbent’s performance is a major impediment in a democracy.

PM Narendra Modi’s pledge to World Economic Forum agenda was also forthcoming and diligently carried out through demonetization in 2016 under false pretext of retrieving black money.

The irony in this context is PM Narendra Modi holding black money in Swiss Bank account and leading the rest of the account holders from India in black money hoarding.

PM Narendra Modi dropped hints in the recent Independence Day speech on August 15, 2021 in reference to India’s preparedness to follow the secret society run New World Order in the present and post pandemic. The notation in the speech was perhaps the PM Narendra Modi’s signal to New World Order authority on India’s willingness and readiness to obey instructions from them.

Above all, PM Narendra Modi also mentioned in the speech about imminent cash circulation reduction without divulging any further details on this important issue.

However, it is imperative for the vast population in India surviving on cash economy in the formal and informal sectors to know about this inevitable change that would drastically impact their existence especially in the absence of viable alternatives for the cash wage earners on daily wage unlike any regular income households in the economy.

Among many secretive sinister activities hidden in Great Reset from the World Economic Forum, eliminating cash economy and substituting with options that are yet to be revealed to the world besides the existing cash replacements like debit, credit cards and crypto currency is critical information for the public.

In the cancel culture era with social media censorship in dismissal of democratic principles and values on free speech, truth and factual data, the public concerted efforts to remain informed is paramount to avert irreversible consequences now and in the near future.

PM Narendra Modi once again in the front line synonymous to 2016 demonetization debacle to execute World Economic Forum’s policy removing cash transactions is a serious venture.

The repeat engagement ignoring cataclysmic financial and economic effects on the majority of Indian population still experiencing grueling economic and pandemic crises is egregious and merit general public attention. The citizens exercising the democratic rights to question the Indian government’s precise action in this regard is fundamental and relevant.

On the other hand, the Indian government failure to disclose the facts and decisions on containing cash economy in adherence to World Economic Forum’s controversial Great Reset would serve as the litmus test on India’s political system as a democracy let alone the world’s largest democracy.

India – Controversial NRC

India –   Controversial NRC

Padmini Arhant

The latest political stunt from incumbent BJP government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to deflect national and international attention from India’s declining economy is National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Indian economy is facing enormous challenges with record unemployment, all time low productivity and consumer power combined with slump in all major sectors of the economy from real estate, manufacturing, auto industry to export business reflected in India’s real GDP and poor investor confidence apparent in recent Indian stock market performance.

Amid severe economic woes, the financial and banking crisis is causing more pain similar to   demonetization blow experienced by common citizens in the street with access to public deposits restricted creating panic and legitimate concerns among banking customers largely representing middle and lower economic class.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi government obviously in a bind with no solutions or effective remedy to precipitous economic status contributing to jobless youth frustration, the educated younger generation unable to find any job let alone suitable employment in their respective or desired occupation.

Small medium businesses are not the only ones affected, the bigger entrepreneurs are also feeling the bite and expressed grievance in the contemporary economy under much touted PM Narendra Modi 2.0 second term.

Instead of addressing the ailing economy, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah Sarkar or government tactfully engaged in diverting public focus from reality to a political camouflage staging the wanton communal crackdown on the weak, vulnerable and much targeted segments in society with the launching of National Register of Citizens or NRC.

The politically motivated move generating hype and hysteria against those branded as political and economic refugees in North Eastern India like Assam in particular though the policy is widespread and implemented nationwide to promote RSS’s Hindutva  ideology.

NRC is designed to isolate and disenfranchise BJP’s selective demography and religion viz. Islam and Christians besides so-called Hindu lower castes among other groups from certain regions within Indian sub-continent such as migrants from Myanmar or Sri Lankan Tamils regardless of their religious affiliation as Hindu, Muslim, Buddhists or any other faith.

BJP’s strong Hindutva doctrine corral upper castes Hindus within and outside India firmly affirming the anti-democratic path towards Hindu Rashtra or Hindu Nationalism imposing Hindu majority statehood with little or no consideration and thoughts on such acrimonious and impulsive communal paradigm.

The strange and bizarre fact being those behind Islamophobia fervor and suggesting anyone with alternative views to migrate to Pakistan or they are labeled a Pakistani while these Hindutva stalwarts are bed fellows with Pakistani establishment and business merchants.

The above enunciated accounts evidenced in PM Narendra Modi’s surprise visit to Pakistan to attend Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter’s wedding and not long ago exchanging secret pleasantries with the current Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Furthermore, importantly the trade relations between Indian political class and their clients with Pakistani counterparts even during the phony trade suspension following Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir reeks hypocrisy ad nauseam.

The business activities between Indian and Pakistan’s privileged club never disrupted despite maintaining superficial bitter rivalry to polarize peace seeking Indian and Pakistani mainstream population.

On NRC – the fragmentation is purported to hurt intended groups in society. BJP’s fundamentalism has already driven ignorant idle religious zealots to involve in mob lynching of innocent muslims and so-called Dalits in the country for reasons beyond justification.

The NRC is geared at instigating more chaos and communal unrest.

When the argument is based on proselytism or mass conversion of then Hindu religion  followers to Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and so on, the present overzealous social reformers fail to understand and recognize the main and actual members responsible for the status quo.

These members allowing invasion and occupation of India for centuries by Moghuls from ancient Persia and later the traders adept at producing traitors within India – the Colonial East India Company established as British Raj were invariably the upper castes in India.

Those taking pride as Rajvanshis or from the Indian Royal family – the princely states Raja and Maharaja categorized as Shatriyas (warriors) in the caste hierarchy and their Raj gurus or Ministers predominantly Brahmins had no qualms in accommodating the invaders and occupiers at that time. The trend continued to the moment. 

History is testimony to the fact and these events are prevalent until today that foreign invasion of India made possible by those in power as Kings, Ministers and power brokers as well as business community ( Vaisya in Indian caste system) those days until now.

The proselytization of Hindus to Islam and Christianity etc. squarely falls on upper caste as enumerated above.

Hence, the upper caste descendants retaining powerful positions as members in Parliament and government would be the outcasts for their ancestral treason facilitating and cooperating with then invaders determined by BJP as forces behind proselytization or conversion to Islam or Christianity of large swath of Hindus by force or coercion.

The entire exercise arguably leads to introspection and poignant factor that nothing happens without internal collusion and complicity.

NRC is a political maneuver exacerbating complex socio economic and political environment in Secular India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah investing Indian public money in improving and alleviating India’s economic situation would be wise and worthwhile rather than wasting resources and wealth in unnecessary and detrimental policy viz. NRC.

Thank you.

India – Economic Crisis And Jammu Kashmir Ground Reality

India – Economic Crisis


Jammu Kashmir Ground Reality

Padmini Arhant

The videos from third party alternative news outlets discuss and disclose India’s state of affairs on economy and Jammu Kashmir citizens anguish over inability to reach family and avail essential services in the aftermath of government’s overt authority. 

Source – Newsclick – Thank you.

India’s economic crisis is hardly a matter of concern for those in government involved in exacerbating problems like Trifurcation of Jammu Kashmir & Ladakh with centralization of power assuming overwhelming jurisdiction.

Why do governments evade economy? 

Whenever the government has no real effective solutions or robust economic policy to deal with soaring unemployment, slowing business and economic sector on the whole, inflation, credit crunch, agrarian distress, industrial slump in consumer and capital goods, real estate downturns, stock market and currency value decline among myriad economic woes, the government strategy is to distract suffering population attention to anything political, social or religious event rather than economy. 

India’s incumbent government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are leading the nation towards point of no return with dismal economic conditions taking toll on ordinary lives and businesses nationwide.

On Jammu KashmirWhy Kashmiris now declared Indian citizens continue to remain in lock down denying them communication access via telephone, internet and local media?

What is the government agenda behind massive troop deployment in the valley having been downgraded from statehood to union territory under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah direct control?

Why are the political leaders and prominent party members with whom PM Narendra Modi government forged alliance until recently in Jammu Kashmir held in detention?

What exactly is the government plan considering naturalized Kashmiris as Indian subjects following recent abrogation of Article 370 and 35A are experiencing Modi Shah wrath of human rights violations barely known to the rest of the nation or the world for that matter due to communication black out since the rapid abolition of statehood?

How democratic is it for government to deny own citizens in Jammu Kashmir – the inalienable rights to contact family, relatives and members of community within and outside the territory in indefinite curfew?

When is RSS run BJP government and political class going to abrogate and eliminate archaic abhorrent caste system in India while denouncing Triple Talaq (Divorce) and gender discrimination alienating females in property inheritance deceptively cited as Article 370 component as antiquated practice?

No government is above law and no heads of the state have the authority to impose violent restrictions depriving people normal existence.

Any government engaged in such activities could not be democratic exposing the true characteristics of unconstitutional authoritarian governance that sooner than later meet undesirable conclusion.

Unfortunately, Jammu Kashmir citizens are victims of Modi Shah government malfeasance that is being allowed with political opposition complicity and others choosing to remain silent spectators in society barring few exceptions voicing their opinions and objection to the ongoing unruly unconventional politics in the name of ending status quo only prolonged to a greater devious political goals to benefit self and vested interests. 

Jammu Kashmir citizens deserve fair treatment and importantly normal environment that are prohibited under government order that are in serious violation of citizens civil, democratic and constitutional rights.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s latest address to the nation on Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh trifurcation is least convincing at best given ground reality in the valley and Kashmiris dire straits and alarming at worst reflecting PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah’s absolute disregard for basic human rights extending their political legacy from Gujarat tenure endangering democracy. 

India cannot afford a government exceeding limits in every respect from misrepresentation, misinformation to miscalculation of political, economic and social outcome as a result of egregious recalcitrant approach ignoring common plight. 

India rising to the occasion and urging Modi Shah government to respect life and human rights in Jammu Kashmir along with directing focus on the ailing economy is the need of the hour.

Thank you.

India – Tall Order

October 31, 2018

Subversion of Democracy in Indian Sub-Continent


India – Tall Order

Padmini Arhant

Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government in New Delhi and BJP governments in regional states fad for statues of political and historical legends such as former Indian Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Sardar Vallabhai Patel and Maratha ruler Chatrapathi Sivaji in western states of India is quite a display at a time when the nation is tired of awaiting response from PM Modi on the controversial Rafale scandal and latest CBI fiasco.

More than the Statue of Unity, India is desperately in need of Government of Integrity which has been proved to be a tall order in the past decades and up until now.

The government of transparency and accountability would also be the preference by those entities to whom these monuments and memorials are built with political season in the offing.

Apparently, none are exempt from being used as pawns whether it be Lord Sri Ram or the rulers and political icons of India.

Such is the state of political affairs in the relentless efforts to deflect public attention expending tax payers money for gala events.

What might cross the minds of Sri Ram, Chatrapathi Sivaji and Sardar Vallabhai Patel when they are elevated to the sky?

Meanwhile those whom they deeply cared about i.e. the ordinary people and the poorest of the poor are economically minimized and socially marginalized prioritizing political pageantry. 

Indian electorate deserve truth and facts on series of political debacles without having to approach the Supreme Court on all matter in a manner the judiciary substituting legislative branch and independent inquiry agency or committee. 

What is the next target for government having neutralized the investigating agency CBI, monetary authority RBI and to a large extent the ECI – election commission of India?

Indeed, the tallest statues towering over monumental abuse of power beckon national attention.

Thank you.
