Problems facing the country.

Biggest problem facing the country is the concentration of wealth in the hands of few and their complete lack of confidence in the the economy going forward.
What has happened over the last eight years is that Modi has followed an agenda of making people poor (to make them dependent on the government and thus appear as their savior when giving free ration, etc.) and transfer the money into the hands of the rich.
Taxes have been socialized and profits have been privatized.

But this has had a bad effect on the economy. The purchasing power of the masses has eroded and that has led to fall in sales of products and services of the big corporate entities.

#IndiaAt75 Today 🧵

Two days ago was Independence Day in India - a day of celebrating our national sovereignty and saluting the anti-colonial freedom struggle. The triumph of Indian independence, however, is inseparable from the trauma of the Partition experience. Image
Hence, in mainstream culture in India, August 15 becomes a day of bashing Jinnah left, right and centre.
Makes one suspect that the ideals of populist nat-lism & inclusive democracy have been long forgotten under a sea of symbolism, antipathy & myth making– of what a successful nation we could've had, had theren't been an evil separatist at work whose legacy sabotages us even today. Image

An important read for #IndiaAt75
Essays on communalism, poverty, caste, civ & human rights, gender, violence, state, justice & democracy, published by Three Essays Collective.

A Fractured Freedom: Chronicles of India's Margins 2004-11
-Harsh Mander

The paperback is ₹440 on Amazon right now:
Freedom remains bitterly contested in Independent India. Democracy works only for some, who thrive in its liberties, security and choice. Others are condemned to life-sentences variously of hunger, homelessness, stigma, fear, penury and neglect.

An excellent thread by @thekaipullai on why we celebrated #HarGarTiranga #IndiaAt75 . And as @lakshmianand96 wrote, "We are celebrating the fact that that India is flourishing in spite of LeLis, urban naxals, the Tukde Tukde gang, the Lutyens Cabal, the wokes, the NGOs,
Bollywood, morally and financially corrupt dynastic politicians and meddling foreign powers.
That is some achievement!"
“Power will go to the hands of ras­cals, rogues, free­boot­ers; all Indian lead­ers will be of low cal­i­bre & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst them­selves for power and India will be lost in polit­i­cal squab­bles.

My article from the archives:

Hindutva icon Syama Prasad Mookerjee was nonchalant towards rising saffron violence on the eve of Gandhi Murder despite being repeatedly appealed to - and refused to denounce it afterwards.

#IndiaAt75 #IndependenceDay2022…
Popular history speaks of Syama Prasad Mookerjee as a "moderate" distancing himself from the Hindu Mahasabha after the assassination of Gandhi. Image
My piece uses archival evidence (letters bw Nehru & Mookerjee) to show that Mookerjee was nonchalant towds rising saffron violence on the eve of Gandhi’s murder, took no steps to rein in his seditious saffron allies & refused to denounce the Mahasabha even after the incident. Image

*आजादी और मुसलमान*
भारत देश एैसे ही आजाद नही हुआ है इसे आजाद कराने के लिए सभी मजहब के लोगों ने अपनी कुर्बानी पेश की है लेकिन सबसे ज्यादा मुसलमानों का हिस्सा रहा है और मुसलमानों में सबसे ज़्यादा अहले-हदीसों ने कुर्बानी पेश की है।
सबसे पहले साल 1757 में अंग्रेज़ों के बढ़ते जुल्म के खिलाफ मुर्शिदाबाद के नवाब सिराजुद्दउला ने पलासी से तहरीक-ए आजादी की मुहिम छेड़ी मगर नाकाम हुए।
फिर साल 1799 में शैर-ए मैसूर टीपू सुल्तान ने श्रीरंगपट्टनम से आजादी के लिए अपनी जान की बाजी लगा दी,
लेकिन कुछ लोगों की गद्दारी की वजह से अंग्रेजों के खिलाफ लड़ते हुए शहीद हुए।
साल 1825 में तहरीक-ए शहीदईन सैय्यद अहमद शहीद और शाह इस्माईल शहीद ने अंग्रेज़ों के जुल्म के खिलाफ खड़े हुए
1847 से 1947 तक जो भी तहरीक वुजूद में आई उनमें उलेमाए अहले हदीस पेश पेश रहे

The people who celebrate their/kids bday every year, are rattled by observing flags everywhere! If one day celebration doesn’t prove your patriotism then why do ppl spend like a mini-wedding on 25-50-75th anniversaries of self/parents? Don’t they love them rest of days?
How much a flag would cost? If its not about money then what thought process is leading to hate it anyway? Its true that loving your country means keeping it clean, corruption free, respect every faith, pay taxes on time etc. But these are never ending on-going process.
Its same like parents wants their kid to be well educated, well cultured and that’s a long process being practiced everyday. Some ppl find it uncool to change dp, some even felt ashamed that their ‘crush’ has changed dp to a national flag!

For many, 15th August, 1947 was the summit in the fight to achieve Independence!

In reality, it was the base camp!

As we celebrate our 75th years of Independence, the question always comes up “Are we really Independent?”

And I feel that it’s relative!

You have to look at it like vectors!

Relative change of position in a specific direction!

And in this case, that arrow has to point upwards, forwards and onwards!

So a visit to the post office the other day reminded me how much Independence we have truly achieved!
Starting with that very same establishment!

No longer does a parent with a child abroad have to wait weeks to hear from them in the form of a letter! They can receive multiple, May be too many, WhatsApp messages from them on a daily basis on their smartphones virtually free!

Today is a day to introduce some forgotten freedom fighters.
They had one common link - all were communists. And they didn’t send any mercy petition to the British.🧵
1. Muzaffar Ahmed. Chief accused in Meerut conspiracy. 3 years in Andaman Cellular jail. Arrested in 1929, released in 1936 - the longest term in the Meerut case. Moved to India after partition. @cpimspeak founder member.
2. Ganesh Ghosh. Joined the Anushilan Samiti revolutionary movement. In 1930, Ghosh, Surya Sen, and many other Anushilan members took part in the Chittagong armory raid, Chittagong armoury raid accused. He spent 14 years in Cellular jail. Later became @cpimspeak MLA & MP.

“सम्पादक चाहिए- वेतन दो सूखे टिक्कड़ और एक गिलास ठंडा पानी। हर सम्पादकीय लिखने पर दस वर्ष काले पानी की सज़ा।”

यह है एक ऐसे समाचार पत्र की कहानी जिसका कोई सम्पादक जब जेल जाता था तो उस समाचार पत्र में यही विज्ञापन छपता था।
स्वतंत्रता संग्राम के दौरान प्रकाशित होने वाली पत्र-पत्रिकाओं के संपादक, प्रकाशक एवं मुद्रकों को किसी का सहारा नहीं था। संसाधनों और संरक्षण दोनो की मारामारी थी अभिव्यक्ति की स्वतंत्रता के कोई मायने नहीं थे। इन सबके बावजूद पत्रकारिता ‘व्यवसाय’ नहीं ‘मिशन’ के रुप में की जाती थी।

"स्वातंत्र्याचा पहिला दिवस"
#तिरंगा #IndiaAt75 #Gandhi #Nehru

स्वातंत्र्य - जी कालपर्यंत अमूर्त कल्पना होती, आज ती मूर्त स्वरूपात येत होती.
जे, काळ एक स्वप्न होते, ते आज सत्य ठरणार होते.
जो, कालपर्यंत एक संकल्प होता, तो आज सिद्ध होणार होता.
कालपर्यंत गुलाम असलेला एक देश आज स्वतंत्र होणार होता.
पारतंत्र्याचा काळोख संपून स्वातंत्र्यासाठी मंगल प्रभात आज उगवणार होती.

गप्पागोष्टी चालल्या होत्या, आम्ही साजऱ्या केलेल्या पहिल्या स्वातंत्र्यदिनाची आठवण निघाली होती
स्वातंत्र्य चळवळीचा एक भाग म्हणून लाहोर काँग्रेसमध्ये संपूर्ण स्वातंत्र्याचा ठराव मंजूर झाला, त्या दिवशी २६ जानेवारी १९३० ला स्वातंत्र्यदिन साजरा करण्याचे आदेश काँग्रेसने दिले होते.

म.गांधीजींच्या नेतृत्वाखाली चाललेल्या लढाईतील आम्ही सैनिक आहो

1.Whenever I think about Independence day, The line "Freedom is not Given,it is Taken" by Netaji Subash Chandra Bose will comes to my mind. Yes India become Independent from British rule, But citizens are having real freedom?- Maybe...NO
2. On #AzadiKaAmritMahotsav we should make a self promise to make our country more Sovereign,Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Republic Nation. Hope for New India #IndiaAt100 without discrimination on all grounds and communal riots.
Salute to all Freedom fighters🇮🇳
Jai Hind!!!

India gears up for its 75th independence day.

But the fact is the country has never been as depressing as it is today.

Two weeks ago, I paid a visit to the Holocaust Museum in DC.

And for nearly three hours, all I did was draw parallels with India.

In April 1933, Nazis under Hitler had staged a nationwide boycott against Jewish businesses. Signs like "Don't buy from the Jews" were plastered on multiple shops.

In India, BJP leaders and supporters have repeatedly endorsed the economic boycott of Muslims.
A newspaper editor, Julius Striecher, called for a permanent and total boycott of Jews.

He could be our Suresh Chavhanke.

Can see some people who are considering themselves as intellectuals,stating that our country is having many issues. So,what is the need of #HarGharTiranga.
First of all, I have to say that, celebrating Independence day doesn't mean that we are fully developed superpower.
( 1/n)
It is celebrated to remember our freedom fighters and their struggle to make #India free from evil British empire. 75 years of independence is a great landmark. It is a fact that we are one of the fastest growing countries in the world. We have come a long way from 1947.
But these stupids won't see that. They'll see only the black dot in a white paper and barking that India has these xyz issue. They can't show a country which doesn't have any issue. Every country have issues. According to their logic, no country should hoist their flag.

#IndiaAt75 In 1926, British Archaeologist Ernest Mckay dug up a small bronze statue in Mohenjodaro and it changed the way the world looked at India's history!

Join me to know the story of the 'Dancing Girl' from Mohenjodaro - the greatest find of the Indus Valley Civilization 🧵
The first Indus Valley major find was the discovery of Harappa in 1829 on the banks of Ravi river in Punjab. It excited the British a bit but the find was still largely academic that they had found an ancient inhabited town that no one knew existed. 2/n
Over the next 50 years, several such sites were found but more than history, Britishers and locals were interested in the high quality bricks that these sites provided.

They were plundered for building houses, ballast for railway lines all the way between Karachi to Delhi. 3/n

Today is “August Kranti Diwas”, the day Gandhiji launched #QuitIndiaMovement in 1942. Yusuf Mehrally coined the slogan “Quit India” that inspired Indians against British. Mehrally went to jail 8 times. Wrote no mercy petitions & never collaborated with the British. #IndiaAt75
British shot Indians who saluted tiranga, arrested at least one lakh Indians, carried out public floggings & levied collective fines

Mehrally & most senior Congress leaders were jailed. At the time, he was Bombay’s mayor. He was the first socialist to be elected to the post
Mehrally would only come out of imprison in 1946.

He reportedly came up with “Quit India” at a meeting of Gandhiji’s associates some time before the launch of the movement. He presented Gandhi with a bow bearing the inscription ‘Quit India’. Gandhi said in approval, ‘Amen’.”

Just after his victory in the 1984 elections, #RajivGandhi faced his first big challenge. On 23rd April 1985, the Supreme Court ordered the ex-husband of a Muslim woman from Indore, Shah Bano, to pay her maintenance under Section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). 1/13
Shah Bano's ex-husband Mohammed Ahmad Khan had argued in the Madhya Pradesh High Court, that under Islamic Law, he had paid his divorced wife three months' maintenance, and he wasn't obliged to pay any more. 2/13
But the apex court maintained that "there is no conflict between the provisions of Section 125 and those of the Muslim Personal Law on the question of a Muslim husband's obligation to provide maintenance for a divorced wife who is unable to maintain herself". 3/13

#RajivGandhi was barely 40 when he became Prime Minister of #India. #Politics was not his first choice as a career and yet Rajiv, an airline #pilot, found himself in the hot seat after his mother, Indira Gandhi, was assassinated in October 1984, when she was PM. 1/13
#IndiaAt75 Image
When Rajiv took over, he had a clean personal and political image. He was non-controversial. His initiation to #politics had taken place on the death of his brother Sanjay. In 1981, Rajiv stood for election from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and won a seat in the Lok Sabha. 2/13
#Terrorism was already raging in Punjab, and in the midst of the 1984 election campaign, #India was hit by the world’s worst industrial disaster. On 3rd December, a poisonous gas leak from American multinational Union Carbide killed 2,000 people in Bhopal. 3/12
