Those who give such logic that US, Sweden, EU etc provide Direct Income Support/Subsidy to farmers miss the point that these countries have just less than 5% population engaged in Agriculture (less than 2% for Sweden). India has more than 60% population directly/indirectly..
... dependent on Agriculture. When these countries spend money on Farmers, they are effectively spending on just less than 5% of their population. While for spending on Agriculture, India spends on atleast 50% of its Population. That's why it's totally unsustainable for India
.. to give subsidies to Farmers. Average Farm size in India is just 3 acres while in US it's almost 444 acres (they allow Industrial Farming). That's why even with such miniscule % of Population being engaged in Agriculture, they are able to produce food not just for...
... themselves but for world as well. MSP, Fertilizers, PMKisan etc are all just minor issues. The one important thing India needs to do to solve its entire mess is to reduce its Population engaged in Agriculture & create employment for them in Manufacturing & Services.
Currently Agriculture contributes just 15% to India's GDP. No matter what you do, Industry & Services will always grow faster than Agriculture. So by 2030, Agriculture will just contribute 10% to our total GDP. And we will be having 60% of Population directly/indirectly..
.. contributing to only 10% of GDP. That's why by 2030, we need to reduce population engaged directly/indirectly in Agriculture by half to 30% & to 10% by 2040. To do that, we need allow Industrial Farming. To create jobs for that Population in Industry & Services,...
... we need to build rapid Infrastructure. And to raise money for that, we need to Privatise PSUs, sell govt assets & reduce taxes. But we will oppose Privatization saying 'Desh bech diya' & Environmentalists will oppose Infrastructure Development. So nothing will ever..
... change in India. Just like Sharad Pawar always remained 'Future PM', India will always remain a 'Future Superpower'. We will never become one. It's our Tryst with Destiny. 😊

Pre filling IT returns & no Tax audit for businesses having Turnover upto 10 crore is an assault on CA Profession.
Government is hell bent on destroying one of the respected Profession in India by doing such useless things. If Tax return filing is simplified, then how will..
... CAs make money? How is a CA supposed to run his firm when Government is taking such anti CA decisions in the name of Ease of Doing Business. This #BlackBudget2021 ought to be resisted at all costs. Either government should ensure Minimum Professional Fees for all CAs,..
Or govt should take back all such useless proposals in this #BlackBudget2021 .
I request all people from CA fraternity to gather at #SinghuBorder . We should learn from our Annadata friends about how to blackmail an elected government. Ease of Doing business can go to hell.

Excerpts from the book 'Indian Summer'

From the sorrow & tragedy of Gandhi's death, some hope emerged. Mountbatten took the opportunity to tell Patel & Nehru that Gandhi's last great wish had been to see the two of them brought together. Weeping, the two men embraced.
Furthermore, though the long-anticipated final sacrifice had not been made by his own hand, it had, nonetheless, achieved a little of what he had spent much of his life pleading for. After a small spate of attacks on Hindu Mahasabha members in Bombay, India calmed, and...
... the harassment of the Muslim Population of Delhi ceased. Refugees were rehoused in the Punjab. Stalls and shops reopened in Connaught Place. Unwittingly, with his act of hatred, Nathuram Godse had brought the Hindus and Muslims together.

This day. 1948.

Gandhiji was assassinated by Naturam Godse. Within hours, at 15-50 people were killed in Anti Brahmin riots in Maharashtra organised by Congress supporters just because Nathuram Godse was Brahmin.
"In February 1948, one thousand of their (Chitpavan Brahmins) houses were officially reported as having been burnt down in Maharashtra as well as Northern Karnataka, and an unspecified number were killed." Koenraad Elst in 'Gandhi and Godse' pg 13.
The mob attacked the residence of Narayan Savarkar, the brother of Veer Savarkar.
He was pelted by a stone on his head. He succumbed to injuries and died eventually.
Nobody has made an official count of number of Brahmin victims. Some estimates put it in thousands.

My guts tell me that something will happen in MH soon.
Few days back, MH BJP team met Nadda. Then Gadkari suddenly visits MH. Today Gadkari & DF had closed door meeting in Nagpur for hours. Sena & Congress fighting over Aurangabad issue. NCP & Cong fighting over Munde issue.
There can be split within Congress. 2/3rd MLAs can join BJP.
Reasons I feel this -
1. Congress hasn't appointed WHIP in MH assembly.
2. That fool UT gave away speaker post to Congress in return for less ministries. Generally, those who want to remain in power, ensure speaker..
.. of their own party. In Bihar, BJP has speaker. In UP when BJP-Mayawati formed govt, BJP had their own speaker. It helps during political crisis. Currently in MH, speaker is of Congress. And he is ex BJP man. Nana Patole. He resigned from BJP & joined Congress in 2018.

तुकाराम मुंढेसारख्या अधिकऱ्यांना नायक सिनेमामधला अनिल कपूर बनण्याची इच्छा आहे. प्रसिद्धीची चटक लागली आहे. जशी आधी अण्णा हजारेंना लागलेली. नायक सिनेमाने राजकारणाबद्दल खोटं चित्र निर्माण करून तरुण पिढीच फार नुकसान केलं आहे.केजरीवालचं अक्ख करिअर त्या सिनेमामुळे आहे.
काही लोकांना पैशाची चटक असते, तर काही लोकांना मी किती साधा, सरळ, इमानदार आहे हे दाखवून फेमस होण्याची. मुंढे त्यातले एक. ह्यांच्यात एक वेगळाचं अहंकार असतो. मी सरकारी अधिकारी आहे. मला एखादी चुकीची गोष्ट दिसली की मी कारवाई करणार. तत्वतः हे बरोबर आहे. लोकांना देखील असली....
... स्टंटबाजी आवडते. परंतु तुमच्या इमानदार असल्याचा समाजाला फायदा होत आहे की नुकसान हे ओळ्खण्यासाठी विवेकबुद्धी देखील असावी लागते. एक उदाहरण देतो. एक बिल्डिंग पुनर्बांधणी साठी गेली. तिथले सगळे रहिवासी दुसरीकडे तात्पुरते भाड्याने राहायला गेले आणि तो बिल्डर त्या राहिवाश्यांना..

भाऊ तोरसेकर एकदा म्हणलेले की पवार हे काही ब्राम्हणद्वेषी नाहीत. मतांच्या राजकारणासाठी ते काही विधान करत असतील, परंतु देवेंद्रजी ब्राम्हण आहेत म्हणून पवार त्यांचा द्वेष करत नाहीत. तर त्यामागचं खरं कारण असं आहे की पवारांना फडणवीसांमध्ये तरुणपणीचा शरद पवार दिसतो.
तशीच अभ्यासू वृत्ती, धडाडी, अफाट मेहनत, बोलण्यावर ताबा, शांतपणे संयम ढळू न देता राजकारण करणं हीच तर पवार यांची देखील वृत्ती होती. त्यात फडणविसांना पक्ष नेतृत्वाचा पूर्ण पाठिंबा आहे. त्यामुळे आपल्या हयातीत एक माणूस पुढे येऊन आपल्या पद्धतीचं राजकारण करून, आपण केलेल्या चुका..
...टाळून अपल्यापेक्षा पुढे जातोय हे पवारांना खटकत आणि त्यामुळे ते फडनविसांचा द्वेष करतात असं भाऊ म्हणलेले. त्यावेळी काही मला ते पटलं नव्हतं. परंतु पवारांच्या आणि फडणवीसांच्या काही उत्कृष्ट मुलाखती ऐकून हे पूर्णपणे पटलं. त्या मुलाखती शेअर करतो आहे. इच्छुकांनी ऐकाव्यात.
