ராஜீவ்: சிதைக்கப்பட்ட பெரும் கனவு

குழப்பமாக விடிந்தது 1991 மே 22 . பெங்களூர் சதாசிவ நகரில் நாங்கள் குடியிருந்த வீட்டின் உரிமையாளரான கன்னட அஜ்ஜி (பாட்டி), "எங்கியும் வெளியே போக வேண்டாம். நாங்க இருக்கோம்" என ஆறுதல் சொன்னார்.
அன்று வேலை பார்க்கத் தொடங்கியிருந்த இளைஞர்களான அது எங்களுக்குப் பெரிய பிரச்சினையாகத் தோன்றவில்லை. முதல் நாள் இரவு இந்தியாவின் முன்னாள் பிரதமரான ராஜீவ் காந்தி தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகளால் கொல்லப்பட்டிருந்தார்.
அன்றைக்கு ஏழு ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு அவரது தாயும் பயங்கரவாதிகளால் கொல்லப்பட்டிருந்தார். ஆனால், அந்த மரணம் நாட்டை முழுவதும் பாதிக்கும் முன்பு, அவரது மகன் ராஜீவ் நாட்டின் மிக இளம் பிரதமராகத் தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்பட்டிருந்தார்.

A few weeks after the assassination of #RajivGandhi I got a call from the News Unit of DD Chennai asking for me to give the voice over for a tape that was being put together compiling the evidence.Since the evidence was confidential at that time,the dubbing would be done at night
For days together I would go to the studio post 10 pm. A DSP from the CBI team would join me along with one editor and a sound engineer. Painstakingly each piece of evidence would be given an exhibit number and the details of what it was, where it was found etc.wd be recorded
There were hundreds of such pieces of evidence and as the process continued it gave me an idea of the meticulous planning and sheer ruthlessness of the operation that killed Rajiv. Some of the photos were too gory to be published. Human remains shredded to bits was evidence too

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...

A brief history of #AirIndia
1) #JRDTata creates a airline that has 30% market share & had one of the highest best in class reputation globally
2) #Nehru derails it by nationalisation
3) #Morarji kicks out JRD Tata & sending it diving down
4) #RajivGandhi thinks #RatanTata will
avoid crash landing & makes him chairman. Later #AnandMahindra is made chairman. Nothing helps becoz both have no control
5) #UPA/#SoniaGandhi/#PrafulPatel/#MMS decide crash landing inevitable & they encash on it by spending 11 billion $.
6) To soften crash landing they further
merge it with #Indianairlines & #AirIndiaexpress so more employees can share the pain of the crash
7) Airline approaches crash point & #NarendraModi looks for a new pilot without success
8) Modi govt finally bites bullet, jumps out without parachute thus reducing the excess load

Not everyone is aware of Rajiv Gandhi’s legacy. So here’s sharing a facts:

Bharat Ratna #RajivGandhi at 40, was the youngest prime minister of India. In his five years of rule from 1984 to 1989, the young leader made some sincere efforts to take the country to the 21st century.
Rajiv Gandhi laid the foundation of a modern India. He left an imprint of modernity.

Telecom Revolution

Rajiv Gandhi is hailed as the 'Father of Information Technology and Telecom Revolution of India'. He is rightfully known as the architect of digital India.
It was under his rule that Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) was established in August 1984 to develop state-of-the-art telecommunication technology and meet the needs of the Indian telecommunication network.

Deposing #RajivGandhi and renaming the #KhelRatna award after #MajorDhyanChand is a) a classic dead cat, b) hypocritical, and c) a cheap shot. Yes, it honours one of India’s greats, but it is no political masterstroke.

#PVNarasimhaRao did it with far greater finesse … 1/
a) It is a classic #deadcat as described by @LyntonKCrosby – a sensational topic thrown in to divert attention away from more damaging topics (of which there are many). This is a standard tactic now, especially among neopopulists. So, no real surprise there

... 2/
@LyntonKCrosby b) Hypocritical, because, among other things, it comes less than six months after the #Motera stadium was renamed after #PMNarendraModi. Oh come on

India’s biggest enemy is its enormously bloated IAS bureaucracy that holds “permanent power”thru seats left behind by British. (In Pakistan it is the military). The IAS makes or breaks politicians thru its own media+election commission apparatus. It
It (IAS machinery) can make/break politicians thru well orchestrated press “leaks”& scandals.They call it anti-incumbency sentiment of voters-they control vote bank machinery thru “election commission”. They punished #RajivGandhi thru a well timed “BoforsLeak” for his attempt to
bypass the IAS via Sam Pitroda’s CDot. His push 4 Indian growth in mobile comms threatened the IAS directly. Now the IAS machinery is punishing ModiGovt for trying to push for “economic growth”. Just like w RajivGandhi, they are threatened by Modi’s attempts to break free from

🔱THREAD: #TamilsPrideLTTE is trending today. There's actually a lot of similarity between the Tamil cause in Sri Lanka & the Sikh cause in India. Both were the result of minority persecution in a majoritarian regime. #NeverForget1984 #SikhGenocide1984 #Khalistan #TamilEelam 1/N
In Sri Lanka, the original inhabitants are Buddhists who speak Sinhalese language. There were some original Tamilians living there several centuries back also who migrated from Tamil Nadu, but most of the Tamils were brought to Sri Lanka in huge numbers by the Britishers... 2/N
...to work in coffee/tea gardens in Ceylon (which become a British colony in 1796). The Tamilians settled & flourished after getting preferential treatment from British. The country remained a Dominion of British Empire until 1972. In 1972 Sri Lanka got status of a Republic. 3/N

Years after the 1987 #HashimpuraMassacre and #MalianaMassacre
Not much has changed for the survivors and the relatives of the people killed. The wounds are still fresh, the quest for justice is still an ongoing ordeal and they no more trust men in khakis
It took them precisely 2 hours to complete the task they had assigned themselves. At the end of those two hours, nothing stirred in #MalianaMassacre as people sat huddled together, gripped by fear as the stench of smoke and human bodies rose about them.
#HashimpuraMassacre
Those who ran out to escape the inferno were showered with gunfire by PAC men positioned on rooftops. Scores fell to the bullets.”

राजीव गांधींनी 'डिजिटल इंडिया'चा नारा दिला, तेव्हा मोदींची गॅंग गाईच्या शेणात पार बुडालेली होती

१९८४ मध्ये विक्रमी बहुमतासह राजीव भारताचे पंतप्रधान झाले, तेव्हा ते अवघ्या चाळीस वर्षांचे होते. आणि, तरुणाईचा भारत घडवण्यात मग्न होते.
1/10
तो काळ म्हणजे जागतिकीकरणाची गर्भारभूमी होती. जग बदलत होते.जुने कोसळत असताना, नवे काही उभे राहात होते.राजीव यांना या बदलाचे नेमके भान होते.जिल्ह्या-जिल्ह्यात नवोदय विद्यालये उभी करणा-या राजीवना नव्या तंत्रज्ञानाची व्याप्ती समजली होती आणि त्यामागचा विज्ञाननिष्ठ आशयही समजला होता
2
नियतीशी दुसरा करार राजीव करू पाहात होते.
आज जी 'डिजिटल इंडिया''ची चर्चा सुरू आहे, त्याचे जनक राजीवच. जगाने त्यांचे नेतृत्व स्वीकारावे, अशी 'तरूण' मांडणी तेव्हाच ते करत होते.

@RahulGandhi: India Needs You !

#Nehru: His great grandpa chanted #HindiChiniBhaiBhai and lost miles and miles of Indian land to China. He claimed, "Not a blade of grass grows there." He lost Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to Pakistan and turned Kashmir into hell on earth.

#IndiraGandhi: His grandmother was planted as PM of India by USSR by eliminating Lal Bahadur Shastri. It was KGB that lorded over India during all those years of the Iron Lady's rule. Emergency was clamped USSR backing and Indira did not utter one word against interference.

She kept blaming the "Foreign Hand" of America but was the de facto foreign "Hand" of USSR in India.

#RajivGandhi: Wasn't even able to stand up to the bullying of #AIMPLB. He was such a miserable failure that he sacrificed the interests of Indian Army...

Have said this many times & will ask @narendramodi again>Why u continuing with 'Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award' on a person who's accused by ur party of #1984SikhsGenocide? What sports #RajivGandhi played? None!

Why u so scared of removing #ChineseGandhis 4m scheme/award names?🤔
Ha.Ha.. May be there is some #ChanakyaNiti #MasterStroke of @narendramodi in continuing with #RajivGandhi name in such awards/schemes? If you don't want to name it on a sportsperson, at least rename it as "Bharat Khel Ratna", same lines as 'Bharat Ratna"?
When @INCIndia was in power, it named each & every scheme on Nehru/Indira/Rajiv, ignoring any/every rule-book. Now if @narendramodi fix some of this, Why should it be"downright foot stomping of opposition"? It's SANE thing to do. Shame, #Modi not doing it!

#Father_Son_and_Holy_Ghost

It is birth anniversary of the original #RaGa. #RajivGandhi was born on 20th August. I am inspired to write this after looking at Congress relaunching Rahul in Rajiv mood with a new wig and new set of artificial dentures.
#Part1 Image
Rajiv wasn't just original RaGa. He was the original Pappu too. What Rahul is doing today for the BJP, Rajiv began that process in 1985. He laid the foundation stone for the phenomenal growth of #BJP from two seats to 330 plus.
#Part2
The trinity of Father, son and Holy Ghost; RaGa, RaGa and #SoGa have practically handed BJP over to India and India over to BJP.

With #ShahBano, #Ayodhya, #IPKF and #Bofors, Rajiv was the Haley's in Blunderland.

The painful ghallughara of June 1984 and later the traumatic events of Oct-Nov the same year symbolise the brutal and criminal anti-Sikh policies and decisions of the successive #Congress regimes at the Centre and in Punjab. 1/4

Even today, I find it so unreal, nightmarish and so unbelievable that a government in one’s own country could be so insensitive and so full of petty politicking as to roll tanks into the most sacred shrine of humanity, Sri Harmandir Sahib. 2/4
The world watched in horror and utter disbelief when instead of punishing the murders of thousands of innocent Sikhs, #RajivGandhi proceeded to reward the killers with positions of power and glory, including cabinet berths. He was clearly rubbing salt into #Sikh wounds. 3/4
