Raj Thackerey Aagey Badho, Hindustan tumhare saath hai

Date : 10th November 2009
Time : Sometime during the day
V
enue : Maharashtra State Assembly
Occasion : Oath taking ceremony for the newly elected Members of Legislative Assembly
Incident : Rape..

ehhhhh.????? No wasnt it a political stunt? Niether political rally? then it must be some Netaji doing some speech? No , No, No???? darn what was it?
Me : You tell me
My soul : An open rape..
Me : Cheeey.. no way
My soul : Indeed, It was ..
Me : Why do you say that? Who raped and who was raped?
My Soul : Democracy was raped, openly. People who raped it had taken Viagara to ensure it was raped inhuman. Not only that, with pride people who raped walked away!!!

This is what happened yesterday as all of you may have known.. a few elected members demanding that other elected members can only take Oath only in Marathi the native state language. People who did not know or deliberately did not want to chose to go the national language and the rape happened. Anyways... we dont care about it.. We are the mediocre Indians who would say "So what, it happens... what can we do anyways" in other words the nation is saying that "Raj Thackerey continue doing what you do, we all will keep mum" I am sure the hooligans would not wait to target me when they read the blog so will they do reading several other blogs that say the same thing...
So what all happened and not just the rape?

1. Some Buses were stone pelted in the city
2. Some shops were forced to close
3. Some school children were scared as they did not know what to do , when people on roads were shouting slogans and were in an aggressive mood.
4. Some loss of public property
5. The broken microphone which was used to take Oaths.
6. Some comments from decent people that this is not accepted
7. Suspension of 4 people suspected of raping democracy
8. Statements made by the Semi volted fuse saying we will go to court to handle this
9. Some more rapes.. this time of the pride of the National Language, spoken in majority of the country
10. Smile... This is how you run a House......

Well he said it, he did it.. for those votes that he needs desperately.. he chose to ruin democracy and freedom of choice. But we will keep mum..

Current Government : We wont do much
Police : We cant do much
People : How can we do anything
Hooligans : We will do it again and again.

So the nation will not stand up against this and in other words Silence is acceptance... meaning Raj Thackerey Aagey Badho hum tumhare saath hai"

Finally a Government in Maharashtra

November 7th 2009 may not come again... and it is special.. because after the election results declared on 23rd October, it took long enough for the Congress and NCP to finally align and accept the Cabinet and Ministries sharing formula to form government... of course the past post holders of the Chief Minister and Deputy does not change... but as the seat sharing before elections took time.. it took time to finally form the government...

Good that we will have some government who some mediocre's can blame...

All the Best Ashok Chavan ji

Vande Mataram and Me


A few days ago... the Jamaat-e-Ulema the body governing Islam courts in India raised a dictat thats its a sin for Muslims to sing Vande Mataram... I always heard this... right from when I was 7 yr old.. Honestly I never understood why... so today I spent time googling around and actually got a translation of the patriotic song from one of the referring lyrics web site...

Here is the translation.. I dont know the authencity.. but I believe it is true..

Translation by Shree Aurobindo

Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,
Mother free.

Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.

Who hath said thou art weak in thy lands
When the sword flesh out in the seventy million hands
And seventy million voices roar
Thy dreadful name from shore to shore?
With many strengths who art mighty and stored,
To thee I call Mother and Lord!
Though who savest, arise and save!
To her I cry who ever her foeman drove
Back from plain and Sea
And shook herself free.

Thou art wisdom, thou art law,
Thou art heart, our soul, our breath
Though art love divine, the awe
In our hearts that conquers death.
Thine the strength that nervs the arm,
Thine the beauty, thine the charm.
Every image made divine
In our temples is but thine.
Thou art Durga, Lady and Queen,
With her hands that strike and her
swords of sheen,
Thou art Lakshmi lotus-throned,
And the Muse a hundred-toned,
Pure and perfect without peer,
Mother lend thine ear,
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
Bright with thy orchard gleems,
Dark of hue O candid-fair

In thy soul, with jewelled hair
And thy glorious smile divine,
Lovilest of all earthly lands,
Showering wealth from well-stored hands!
Mother, mother mine!
Mother sweet, I bow to thee,
Mother great and free!

Now why is this dictat? and why so much of politics? I really dont understand...whats the harm in Saluting the motherland? whats the harm in praising Motherland? whats the harm in saying that we are proud of you Mother India?

I dont know... now leave the people behind the dictat.. why is it so important for some people to force others to say it when they dont want to? and even they are forced to say that.. does it mean that those people will be trusted? Well Opportunism has taken its place on this topic... and the Vote politics on this can change future for the political parties that are now in disaster state...

Are we Indians ready to let that happen? Hell No... I am happy to sing Vande Mataram, I Like it for various reasons...it gets goose bumps on my body with the first word... I feel proud for my motherland...I like to hear good things about the motherland..
