A Political Rape of Institution in Pune

A renowned Air Hostess Training institute was almost ransacked today by a set of people.. A lot of them with flags of political parties were roaming around the heart of the city and the premise of the training institute...

This time as usual the hooliganism was due to something that to me doesnt sound any meaning.. Some students of the so called Training institute called up a Political party for help saying that the Training institute offered them courses at the cost of tons of money with a promise that post completion of their jobs they would be offered by Airline companies...

Allegation : They took our Money and did not get us desired jobs

Wow... event started in the morning around noon when some members of a political party gathered outside the training institutes office and started shouting slogans... few minutes a bunch of more members from different political parties gathered and started doing the same.. cops called , the training institute shut down... amazing scene...

I have never seen so many political parties fighting for a cause... but what is the cause here?????

The Airline companies are going down in recessions, We know Air India was recently bailed out. SOme other major airliners in the country going down and cutting staff becuase they are not doing good.. Where will the jobs come from????

Darn it , the political parties made a good rape of the cause.. but do they really understand the scenario? is it just about getting credit? Is it just to show people that they are awake?

Stop it... Stop vandalising the image of Politicians...

Please ...

I read this in one of the orkut groups, written by a young Pune concerned citizen... eventually the Moral of his post turned aggressive... Long back I had a discussion with Kari.. we discussed that Yes Politics should be made as a profession there should be a org chart and there should be a progress card for each elected person. The Prime Minister / Chief Minister should be the acting reporting Manager and should appraise the MP's MLA's based on their performances... as we calculate the ROI... the performance of a Member of such house should be calculated...

It would only work well when people take it as a profession... at the moment it is NOT a profession, it is just another working body of people who once elected are not afraid of loosing their jobs for 5 years...

Change of Constitution???? Yes why not

Will I? Will I Ever?

Yes... an honest question I have being asking me for a while now... I have a very strong urge to join politics.. I may be an a**hole and I want to prove that I be the same a**hole when I join politics... Today when the election results for the State Assembly are out... I call myself and Ask.. Will I? Will I ever be able to join politics? In other words will I ever go to politics?

Even if not now... I see myself in the next 5 yrs moving towards politics... NO I dont want to just run a election, win and earn.. there are reasons I want to be in politics...

1. In the last few years of working I have seen a professional attitude built in me.. and I guess this attitude will bring a different perspective in political arena..

2. I think I am happy with what I have done in my life.. I think whatever I did I did well, and where I did not do well I took my lessons right.

3. I want to give something back to the community... I know that other modes can let me do that, but the opportunities to do it better will not be there...

4. Its time to step up and show the city, state, country and world that we want to change it.. there are so many who are stepping up and there is a need to support it by not backing it but being up in front.

5. I think I like it..

Well now its just not that I wanna be.. I have being thinking of putting a five year plan to step up and do this... unlike sitting back and waiting for an opportunity I am going to think of stepping up and earning this opportunity...

Year 1 :
Look out the contacts in a national party and try to involve in side line activities that are under a specific division and area.

No I cant get into politics as an independant or from some small party that has no existing political support... Difficult, but what is not in this world?

Year 2 :
Presence : Make it felt, not by party but by a set of youth.
target Youth oriented activities, sports, counsel younger generation in slums and various other areas.
Join force with an existing party entity: there is nothing better than having a God Father.

Year 3 :
Run campaigns, Innovate , Bring technology to support activities in the region.
Study the area that you target to opt for. Break the area up into:
1. Type of localities
2. Subsidy wards
3. strenghts and weaknesses of area (commercial, functional, natural)
4. Put up a roadmap for every 500 houses in a given area.
5. Build the Team to look after the breakups.
6. identify potential revenue earners for the area (Hoardings, bill boards, over bridges, companies in the area etc) these revenue earners can be forced to suppport infrastructure activities.

Year 4 :
List down common problems per 500 houses.
2. Build a workaround list for it
3. Build a long term goal
4. Target problems and self dependency options per 5 units (rain water plant, solar plants, personal wind mills ) etc
5. Use providers and big brands to advertise and support energy saving options within the region. Get sponsors for such things.

Year 5 :
Step in to be in politics.... Dirt yourself so you can be one of them and then step up to show how you can clean yourself and others...

In these 5 years I have several ideas that can be put up in the plan... a few examples:

1. Find corporates in a given area, make them to advertise themselves by :
a. Sponsoring energy saving items on road lights etc (Solar plants)
b. rain harvesting plants in outer , unskirted belts
c. Promote local and stable employement opportunities
d. Generate multiple common areas to generate smaller business around those places

2. Self help female units..
a. generate personal opportunities by letting house wives generate businesses like laundry, food and beverages and messers.
b. micro banking units to help save on daily basis
c. invite College social groups that can help slums and other under privilidge areas with home schools and night schools

3. Medical
a AIDS, and other medical awareness programs.
b. get help groups to generate physical and mental health opportunities

4. Promote local and micro business opportunities like auto rickshaws, tourism vehicles etc.

5. Create innovative public place to invite more tourism options

6. Install road and rail congestion charges to private vehicle owners

7. promote recycling abilities to support reusability

...... many many more... My referandum should probably hold this... but this is something that I would like to start planning on initially.. I hope I will do it right if I do it..

Will I do it is the Question... Will I? Can I?

Bombay - Gang Mafia, Mumbai - Political Mafia.. Why Mumbai????

Karan Johar had to apologize for making a wonderful movie and contributing to the Indian Cinema with his fine and glamorous movies.

Karan Johar had to apologize because someone in Town did not like what he made

Karan Johar had to apologize because he used a word in the film that represented a city name in the past as it was called ?

So.. some touts of our famous wanna be self proclaimed Marathi Leader vandalised and stopped the screening of "Wake up Sidd" the much awaited film from KJO as Karan Johar is called....eventually while reading the online version of the news paper a collegue from my UK Team walk past and after reading the KJO incident asked on Why Bombay is named as Mumbai? I am sure he had read Shantaram .. and was aware of Bombay... and Bombay mafia...

My Answer : I dont know

Honestly I dont know why we changed Bombay to Mumbai, probably because someone decided to call India as Hindustan, or somebody thought that calling it Mumbai would bring its Marathi flavour back!!!!
But whats the logic of changing the city name?
Ask a Seth Godin and a change in name is a NO NO , specially when it is a well adapted brand...why would one want to change the name of the city? I am glad they aint asking to change the name of the country we already have a bunch of them as in "India aka Bharat aka Hindustan" ...
I dont know, Moroever whats the logic in rampaging someones office because he called Mumbai as Bombay.... wuffffff when will people really learn to talk Development and not after whom should he roads, bridges and cities be named? Well I hope the elections have the ballot that would show the prouds a mirror... Sometimes I wonder on how big people can think of themselves, inspite of looking in the mirror?????
