Chat with a respected Friend ..

Whenever I'm in Shimla I meet a very elderly and respected retired Bureaucrat a way during my formative years he did guide me quite a bit . We meet at the India Coffee House...

Me: Sir you know I feel I am plugging in my recharger whenever I meet you !
Sir: I look forward to meeting you guys (he mentored quite a few youngsters) .. and I get out of my monotonous daily regimen..walk ...Tea....Crossword ....Coffee ....walk.... TV my prophecy coming true ... BJP doing what it did under ABV and Congress doing what it always does!

Me: Yes Sir.... I feel bottom line is for majority of Indians ....its 'what is there in it for me'....inflation. .. I Tax ... Sops...
S: That's why we remain a Developing Nation ...a Nation in which Merit is not recognised ...where uneducated vote for uneducated/Matriculates... where we keep our own house clean but care two damn hoots about the common areas..
what else can you expect!

M: Do you think Government needs to reboot???
S: This is Kalyug ..if baby did not cry Mom would not feed it .... Media has the potential to make or Government has a very innovative plan to develop Andaman ..10000 cr ... but Media has blacked it out ... why... most are subjective for obvious reasons ... some report based on Social Media reactions ...I know of one Channel that takes up issues in their 9 o'clock news show based on Twitter reactions on various if # by Congis trending then Congi line and if by # by BJP trending then BJP line ..

M: Some Journos complain they do not get Government responses to their questions they end up printing one sided stories !
S: Baloney ... with such high subjective content what do you do... any answer Government gives will be twisted like Tea leaves are treated to make CTC Tea... example .... Government is asked Tea good ... Government says different hot beverages have own benefits ... Media .. Government is baised against Tea... and then starts the subjective reasoning ...and historical, regional , religious connotations!

M: Suit Boot and Intolerance ..what's your take Sir??
S: Suit Boot I think was Laloo's invention for Bihar ....Congress latched on to it...the message was ....this Government is for Business ......Government not hitting back by saying ... who opened Bank doors for people in torn rustic attire ..who Insured them..who gave them loans .... who wore Indian Attire to meet the Queen...who wears Indian attire during Overseas trips... BJP's inept handling made it worse for them...

M: And Intolerance ....
S: Oldest trick in Congress's book ... yes soon the truth about Dadri and the Haryana burnings will come out ... but problem is damage via repeated bombarding has been done a drunk girl slaps a innocent guy.... if the drunk angle is not reported for whatever reason ..this poor guy would loose his ostracised....face a Police investigation ... so what if ultimately the truth comes out ..his life is already hell...and when truth comes out his tormentors will say ... we were oblivious of this angle ... and its he who got slapped ..but as a girl slapped him he is automatically guilty of ..misbehaving etc... same here it's Minority ...Majority is put in the dock ...fact is wherever Muslims are in Minority they question law of the land ... and where they are in Majority ... Sharia is the law of the land!

M: Sir did you view Rahul's interaction with Students in Bangalore yesterday ...
S: Problem is unless one is not a 24x7 politician one should not go in for such interactions ...briefings are not enough... and in this age of live coverage how can you fib about what is clearly evident via the coverage ... clearly the Students gave a Thumbs Up to Swach Bharat and Make in India ....its like having egg on your face and then you 'encourage' fried eggs being cooked on your face! And honesty does not come in percentages.... what is the meaning of ..relatively honest?????

M: What now Sir ...
S: There is no better Ad campaign than the target audience feeling the benefits of the product ... but ...on profiling like Intolerance ...BJP has to react strongly ...control fringe so that fuel is not added to fire ... had some Leaders not made comments post Dadri... Opposition would not have got a handle ....on issues like inflation which immediately affect Hoi Polloi be proactive ..communicate like you are also feeling the pinch ...and measures that will show results in some time ....keep Nation updated ! We can blame the Media .... Opposition ....but like it's Government's job to run the Parliament ..similarly it's Government's job to handle gaps in formation to the Public!

7th pay commission recommendation

Pensioners new pension as on 1/1/2016 can be easily determined by multiplying present gross pension by 24 & again one has to refer to talble-4 &5 of 7th pay commission's report ,wherein new pay matrix explicitly gives the method to compute new basic pay as on 1/1/2016 & as mentioned point to point fixation can be given to old pensioners under OROP (one rank one pension) with same length of service, higher of the two computed figure will be new pension


Threats from psycho terrorism

Why is it that the post of Secretary, Defence or Home or Finance is rated higher than Secretary, Culture or Secretary, Youth affairs or Secretary, Social Justice & Empowerment? If this riddle were to be honestly analysed it would be found that India has so far neglected its Soft Power in comparison to Hard Power. While wars take place occasionally or terrorists strike at gaps of months/ years, the psycho terrorists strike 24x7 non-stop.How else one solve the intolerance puzzle or award wapsi conundrum? When attention is not paid to selections for awards, the unworthy get away with them. Similarly, all autonomous bodies are turned into fiefdoms of a coterie of the selected few who can do anything for remaining in power, even going to the extent of filing an affidavit in the court saying that Lord Ram is a fictitious entity or whatever the authority chose to write. Now that unexpected change of government has happened, they are sore to lose those privileges and are cut up. Now they will not decide on cultural troupes to be sent abroad, a great source of wielding illegal power and influence. Naturally, for them it is "intolerance" of India. They are blaming not only the government but India. They are threatening to go to foreign countries to attain that tolerance as if without them India will come to a standstill. Nothing will happen, excepting the country will register newer heights in all spheres of culture. India's Soft Power can't be entrusted in poor hands as the defence of the country cannot be entrusted to a wimpish General!

Golmaal hai, sab golmaal hai

Most of the first category studious students in the country become Engineers and they work in private companies. The private companies are run by second category studious students who have done Commerce, MBA etc. Most of the third category studious students, who have done arts, become Civil Servants. The private companies go and bow before the Civil Servants. The 4th category students, who either fail or have not completed their studies, become Politicians. The Civil Servants bow before the Politicians. The 5th category is the people, who have not at all studied. They become Sadhus/Priests. The Politicians bow before the Sadhus/Priests inquiring about their fate.








Duplicate degree

The appellant sought for the enrollment number & roll number of a student who was enrolled for the BA course in the year 1993 & passed 3rd year in 1995. The information was denied claiming that it is very difficult to manually search for the old record as computerization has been done from 2006 onwards. The appellant submitted that the degree certificates of the student were snatched and destroyed by her stepmother. The CIC directed to search the relevant record and provide the information along with the duplicate certificates.


Many cases have been brought to the public notice where students are running from pillar to post for getting copies of the old records. It is the duty of the public authority to ensure proper upkeep of the documents in its control.
