I remember the first time I met Mahadeb sir. I had joined a gym for the first time in my life, and by sheer luck, he happened to be my coach. On my first day, it was he who saw me crash on my chest after 2 pushups, I was that weak. But then he worked his magic, and in 6 - 8 months, I was working out with significantly heavier weights each time, culminating in a point where, though I would not have qualified for any tournament, I was as fit as an athlete. So here's a big thank you to Mr. Mahadeb Deka. We'll always be proud of you, sir :)

Is India heading towards anarchy?

14 Jun 2011 - 4:03am | Daya Nath Singh

Yoga Guru Ramdeva fighting to get back the Indian’s black money in the foreign banks to the country continued his fast from June 4, had to give up on 9th on demand of millions of countrymen, who wanted his precious life to be utilized in the welfare of mankind. His tirade against the ‘unholy’ politicians and bureaucrats, who are involved in top-level corruption continued during his fast and none of high- level officials approached to solve the issues raised by him. This was interpreted by a section of the society as the government was not interested in bringing back the black money in the country. Even the government was not interested to reveal the names of such persons, who accumulated black money in foreign banks. The recent development in the country’s politics made every Indian to think over the issue, if the country was heading towards anarchy? The movement started by veteran Gandhian and freedom-fighter Anna Hazare to bring a Lok Pal Bill in the Parliament to check ‘high level corruption’ in public services and judiciary, created an atmosphere of fear among the politicians, businessmen and bureaucrats, who assembled money and property in crores of rupees by unfair means.

On the other hand, the Yoga Guru Ramdeva continued his agitation to bring all black money from the Swiss banks to the country and utilize the same in the developmental activities of the country. On June 4, he began his fast but the government did not pay attention to it. Both the agitations, either by Anna Hazare or by Swami Ramdeva have the feeling of nationalism and to safeguard the future of the people of the country. It is only the ruling party which tries to divert the attention of the people on different issues like questioning about assets of the opposite parties, without declaring their own. The intention of the ruling party is not clear on the issue of the black money.

Unfortunately, the Government of India has tried to crush both the agitations with high handedness. At the initial stage the politicians strongly advocated that bringing of the Bill like Lok Pal, was the ‘sole right’ of the Members of the Parliament. Subsequently, they agreed to accept an equal number of members from civil society for formation of the Draft Bill. In the meantime, it was also revealed that a draft Lok Pal Bill was also pending in the Parliament for more than four decades. No reason was given for the delay in moving the same for discussion... After a few sittings for drafting; the Lok Pal Bill, Anna Hazare seemed to be fed-up with the behavior of the politicians as they started giving much importance to the agitation run by Swami Ramdeva. Ramdeva was given a red carpet welcome by four top Central ministers, who reached to welcome him at the airport. Soon they felt that Swami was too tough in his stand. Ramdeva began his indefinite fast on June 4 and several rounds of discussions began, but turned to be only a ‘blackmailing’ by the government.

The midnight of June 4-5 turned to be a hostile one, when five thousands security men deployed began lathi charge and used teargas on the sleeping lakhs of Swami’s followers at Ram Lila ground. It was alleged that the security men used lathi and teargas on the innocent sleeping men women and children that midnight and looted their belongings. The light connections were cut off and stage was put on fire. The action taken by the security men let the people remember the days of British rule in the country. In no way the present rulers behaved better than the ‘cold blooded’ Britishers. The Congress leaders who had given red carpet welcome to Swami Ramdeva did not react on his fast. Rather some of them wanted to know the details of the assets of Swami’s trust which was immediately given. But shamelessly the opponent of Swami felt shy to give the details of their own assets. It gives an impression of the dictatorship by the ruling party, in which even the prime minister is helpless.
