प्रकृति ने हमें कान दो दिए हैं,लेकिन मुँह एक ही दिया। किसी ने इसकी व्याख्या करके बताया था कि प्रकृति की ओर से ये इस बात का संकेत है कि हम सुनें अधिक और बोलें कम।
बहुत ज्यादा बक-बक करने वाला, सोच-समझकर न बोलने वाला,जो भी ऊटपटांग मन में आ जाए वो बोल देने वाला, विषय का ज्ञान न होते
हुए भी जबरन बखान करने वाला और अक्सर झूठ बोलने वाला लज्जा का पात्र बनता है, ऐसा किसी न किसी शास्त्र में पक्का लिखा ही होगा। अब कौन से शास्त्र में ऐसा लिखा है, ये हमको नहीं पता, और यदि नहीं लिखा है, तो यही मान लें कि ये हमने लिखा है।
हमारे पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री मनमोहन सिंह बहुत कम बोलते थे, और जो भी बोलते थे, एकदम नपा तुला बोलते थे। वो हँसते भी बहुत कम थे। आज उनकी एक फोटो दिखी हँसते हुए, उसको देखकर हँसी आई कुछ सोचकर, क्या सोचकर हँसी आई, वो नहीं बताएँगे। बस फोटो दिखा दे रहे।

During the reign of #Atal Bihari Vajpayee, a famous company called #Enron planned to set up a factory in Dabol, #Maharashtra!... However, this did not happen due to the opposition of the local people. As a result, Enron was angered by the changing circumstances.
38,000 crore compensation case filed against the Indian govt in the #ICJ.
Vajpayee appointed #HarishSalve and #KulbhushanJadhav as advocates for the #GovtofIndia. But, Do you know who was the lawyer for #Eron? None other than #Chidambaram of congress.
The #Vajpayee government #won the case!...
That is, the verdict came in favor of India. Time has passed!
Later, the Vajpayee government ended and the Congress government was formed!#ManmohanSingh is the Prime Minister. Cabinet Minister #Chidambaram. #Enron #appealed the case.

#RahulGandhi defies and disrespects every democratic institution, whether it is the Parliament or the judiciary. He should come out of this dynastic mindset and realise that no individual is bigger than the country, bigger than the Constitution of India: #PiyushGoyal Image
We have institutions of high integrity in this country whose working has never been questioned by anybody. Unfortunately, Rahul Gandhi has never respected high Constitutional offices, including the office of his own PM Dr #ManmohanSingh: #PiyushGoyal
I would urge #RahulGandhi if he represents the politics of truth and love as he claims, he must come to terms with the fact that today PM #NarendraModi is the most loved, admired & the most trusted leader in #India and across the world: Union Minister #PiyushGoyal

Taken too many days to pen this down and I'm not the only one to tell you this. 🍡A leading national daily first broke this story🍡but nothing happened & the whole affair was hushed up.

Before I knew about this loot looked upon Manmohan Singh as a weak, simple & Robotic PM. But have to admit it was foolish of me to assume this. Actually he has been the most clever shrewd man. Let me tell you he was not a man of choice as FM but PV Narasimha Rao was forcedto
make him FM by IMF & World Bank in lieu for financial assistance. PVR shaped & facilitied opening of Indian economy. But Manmohan Singh took the entire credit. In 1998 Vajpayee introduced drastic changes in Govt. Policy & functioning. Unfortunately BJP lost the next election

#Thread #NarendraModi Ji Foreign Visits

A woman who is working in the Indian Embassy in Germany wrote about Modiji in a post like this !

When #former #PrimeMinister #ManmohanSingh came to #Germany, he brought around 40 people with him who were his relatives.

A total of five hotels (all Five-Star) were booked for their stay.

All the relatives shopped in expensive Malls every day and bought things for lakhs and lakhs of Rupees.

The bills were charged in the name of the entire State Department.

This was the daily story throughout the currency of Manmohan Singh's tour

The entire Indian-staff servant of the State Department used to dance in front of them all.

Manmohanji did not come to the Embassy even once or met us.

May 21, 1991: Most people I know, and who are in my age group, remember vividly where he or she was and what he or she was doing because of the shocking news of #RajivGandhi's assassination. If it didn't happen, remember, #DMK would have continued in power in #Tamilnadu.
The next #Tamilnadu election would have been in 1994. There would have been an #AIADMK for sure, but not #Jayalalithaa's servile party. In fact, I doubt if she would have been this important at all. The triumvirates who protected J from harm would have been very powerful too
#Rajiv would have come to power with a fractured mandate, but would have continued his reform path because of economic exigencies of that time. It would have been very possible that #Congress made yet another proper comeback in 1996, on the government delivering promises...

From the Past - The man who warned us.~In 1999 Former PM Dr. #ManmohanSingh gave an interview to BBC hosted by Karan Thapar. In that Interview he warned against assuming that 🇮🇳was destined to flourish & prosper, if economy was mismanaged & society divided on a sectarian basis Image
He stated the short comings of Indian politics "Many politicians practice a very divisive politics for narrow sectarian reasons. It may be good politics for the moment but it can be a sort of disaster for our country.”
He also stated the very characteristics of an 🇮🇳Politician "Politicians in our country do not adjust their thinking to the changing needs of our time. Our politicians feel whatever they learn in their childhood is adequate stock for them to pronounce on everything in the world.

Have you heard, under Cong laws were made with cabinet approval & then unmade without cabinet approval. Sadly @PChidambaram_IN has his memory short with age catching up ! Recall an ordinance passed by MMS Cabinet torn by RahulG in 2013 as he ambushed a AjayMaken PC.
Have all the sympathies with Mr Chidambaram who was our Home Minister too under UPA regime, coining #HinduTerror & who could not recollect signing changed affidavit of Terrorist Ishrat Jahan ! But can he forget RahulG rebuking PM MM Singh by tearing ordinance copy ?
Did Chidambaram not feel ashamed to learn Dynasty Scion RahulG insulting Manmohan Singh, prior to his meet with Obama, by uncalled & unwarranted act, while then PM Manmohan Singh was on a visit to United States ? What kind of sycophancy is this, fail to understand?

#Demonetisation:What did the Stupidity Cost?

Today Monday it's the 5th anniversary of that day of monumental stupidity when banknotes were withdrawn from circulation. It was Modi’s stupidity!Who can forget that day?
According to a 2011 Pew Research Survey,95% of Americans
95% of Americans born in 1955 or earlier said they could recall exactly where they were or what they were doing when Kennedy was killed.The sheer trauma of the event etches the day vividly in our memories.Indira Gandhi’s assassination on October31, 1984 was yet another day.
Most of us who were alive then can recall small details of that day.Even now I can recall every incident and conversation of that day.The demonetization of November8 2016 has become another day similarly etched in most minds.

I was entertaining some friends at home

Thirty years after Manmohan Singh’s first Budget, as the Indian economy is trying to come out of its largest ever contraction, a look back at how the nature of economic challenges has changed over the last three decades.

By @Roshanjnu…
How serious was the immediate crisis before 1991 Budget?

#ManmohanSingh’s 1991 Budget speech made no attempt to hide the extent of the economic crisis prevailing then.

How bad was the foreign exchange and inflation situation at the time?

CPI (IW) had been in double digits from October 1990 onwards when Singh presented his Budget in 1991. It would stay above the 10% mark until September 1992.

#FactCheck of various "Propaganda Cartoons".

Inflation - Average 4.74% from 2014-2020, lowest in last 6 decades.

Unemployment - Yes, it increased because of Delhi - 45.6%, TN - 28%, Rajasthan - 27.6%.

GDP - India's GDP is low but performance under NDA is still better than UPA.
Supreme Court questioned Modi govt on Vaccine supply & differential pricing and its Ok. Point to be noted that it was States who asked for Decentralization of Vaccines. Supreme Court didn't ordered to Modi government to provide FREE Vaccines to States, but Modi did.
Several propaganda cartoons blaming Modi for Covid-19 situation floating around. 'Health' is States subject in India. fact remains, India has registered lowest Covid-19 De∆ths amongst major countries. De∆th rate in non-BJP States are highest, but entire blame is on Modi.

Who is the real culprit behind the crimes committed by Vijay Mallya? Shame on #ManmohanSingh and #Chidambaram to be named by the British court as being behind the fraud committed by Mallya. Hearing the Mallya case on Friday, Justice Emma Arbaughnott stated in clear terms that,
that, "Indian banks had grossly violated their own rules and regulations in lending to Mallya's airline company Kingfisher. This can be seen 'with closed eyes' she stated. The above remarks were with reference to the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister
Chidambaram ordering the loan to Mallya, despite the bank's objection. On Friday Judge Emma Arbhannot of the Westminster Magistrate Court of London has openly exposed the malpractices and corruption committed by Indian banks in giving loans to Vijay Mallya. "Does any bank officer

THREAD on my interview with Dr Manmohan Singh who said India was looking at a “deep and prolonged economic slowdown” #Manmohansingh #India #economy 1/16
Dr Singh suggested 3 steps to fix the economy: significant direct cash transfers to protect livelihoods and boost spending power; government-backed credit guarantees for businesses; and cleaning up financial sector through institutional autonomy & processes. #Manmohansingh 2/16
Dr Singh pointed to a consensus forming among economists over an economic contraction in India in nominal terms, "which if it happens, will be the first time in independent India".

"I hope the consensus is wrong," he said. #Manmohansingh 3/16

Some important, but valid questions arise as I reflect upon the protests that happened in opposition to #CAA all over the country. Collating my thoughts as a thread and sharing it. The questions are open for anyone to answer. (1/N)
@sakthi_ind93 @Swamy39 @MaridhasAnswers
The #CAA guarantees to instantly provide Citizenship to all persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, who entered India before 31st Dec, 2014. There are 30K+ such immediate beneficiaries who will now be granted Indian Citizenship. (2/N)
Now, questions are raised by few senior MPs and politicians about why Muslims have been excluded. Obvious reasons include:

1. Out of the 30k people who are awaiting Indian #citizenship for many years, there are Hindus, Sikhs, Parsi, Jain, Buddhist and Christians. (3/N)

Even as the Central government has never admitted it, #China had occupied 640 sq km of Indian territory in Eastern #Ladakh during the second term of the #UPA regime under Prime Minister #ManmohanSingh.

Photo: IANS (File)
In 2013, former Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran after his visit to the region had informed the government that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) patrol had set a new Line of Actual Control (#LAC), thus occupying 640 sq km of #Indian territory in Eastern #Ladakh.
The undemarcated #LAC came into existence when China in 1962 occupied Aksai Chin, an uninhabited high-altitude wasteland of the fmr state of #JammuandKashmir, and now part of the Union Territory of #Ladakh. The state was bifurcated into two Union Territories in August last year.

Now that we have irrefutable evidence that former PM #RajivGandhi did not allow the Army from stopping the Sikh genocide of 1984, the #BharatRatna conferred on him should be withdrawn. 1/4
Dr #ManmohanSingh’s disclosures vindicate our stand that #SikhGenocide could have been averted had Rajiv Gandhi heeded appeals to call in Army to tackle arsonists led by @INCIndia leaders. Home ministry records show this decision was taken at a meeting presided over by him. 2/4
I appeal to PM @narendramodi Ji to withdraw the highest civilian honour from Rajiv Gandhi, who planned & oversaw the #SikhMassacre and also get cases registered against Rajiv & others who prevented the Army from entering Delhi. They should be awarded exemplary punishment. 3/4

But, what first helped create the “illusion” that was Mother Teresa?

The answer: Malcolm Muggeridge ‘s 1969 documentary & 1971 book titled “Something Beautiful for God.”

The demand for #BogibeelBridge started in early 1960s. Even the Chinese aggression couldn't wake successive #Congress govts to move an inch towards realising people's dream of a much needed bridge.
People struggled for decades, students fought with successive Congress govts but they wont blink. Ultimately, it took the might of #AssamAgitation to take note of #BogibeelBridge demand.
1985: #Assam Accord was signed whereby #BogibeelBridge was committed by #Congress government led by then Prime Minister late #RajivGandhi. A demand - among many others - that was acknowledged after martyrdom of 855 young students of #Assam
