Speak Out India

We, the Indians had witnessed tremendous incidences of Corruption in Corpulent Numbers over the last few years.
The country admires its revolutionaries after watching a patriotic flick in a multiplex, but does it really hold to heart the freedom struggle. With rising corruption, honor killings, red-tapism, and increasing crime rates, a lot still needs to be done before we rest on our laurels. Corruption and nepotism are hampering our strengths and resources.

We are the largest Democracy in the world...but are we still democratic?? The question continuously strikes our mind but we stay silent by tolerating such questions.

The corruption scams, ruining of architecture, pollution, red-tapism are marring the country’s image and beauty.
The government needs to be transparent and efficient in its functioning. No doubt that raising awareness is one of the method to solve such problems of corruption, poverty, power deficit, crime, but what if the people are completely aware about every situation, about the scams, scandals, the reasons behind it and it’s solution. People like us are well aware of the facts and circumstances and in such situations no such arguments of raising awareness or education seems proper.

We had witnessed large no. of scandals hitting the headlines. The list of scams in India is a never ending.
An average of the scams over the last 12 years alone, since 1992, is estimated to be over Rs 80 lakh crore (Rs 80 trillion) or $1.80 trillion!

• The mind-boggling Rs 176,000 crore (Rs 1.76 trillion), the 2G spectrum allocation scam by telecom minister A Raja, the Commonwealth Scam, Adarsh society Scam are the most recent ones and are the biggest scam in India.

• The Satyam fraud of Rs 8,000 crore (Rs 80 billion), remains one of India's biggest ever corporate scams.

• Taking advantages of the loopholes in the banking system, Harshad Mehta and his associates triggered the securities scam diverting funds to the tune of about Rs 5,000 crore (Rs 50 billion) from the banks to stockbrokers between April 1991 to May 1992. Which was later followed by Ketan Parekh.

• Pune-based real estate consultant Hassan Ali Khan was the main accused in a case involving alleged money laundering to the tune of $8 billion (Rs 39,120 crore), and suspected tax evasion.

• Teak Plantation scam worth Rs 8000 crores. The fertiliser import scam cost the national exchequer over Rs 1,300 crore, Sugar import scam of 1994: Rs 650 crore, Meghalaya Forest scam of 1995: Rs 300 crore ,Urea scam of 1996: Rs 133 crore ,Bihar fodder scam of 1996: Rs 950 crore, Scorpene submarine scam 18978 crore., army ration pilferage scam of 2008 : 5000 crores, Bhansali scam resulted in a loss of over Rs 1,200 crore (Rs 12 billion), Abdul Karim Telgi: Rs 500 crore, Madhu koda mining scam of 2009: 4000 crores, Dinesh Dalmia: Rs 595 crore, ,the most famous TV scam rice scam, land scam in Karnataka, Vedanta scam, oil scam in Maharashtra across India and many More.

• According to the primary findings of the report titled 'The Drivers and Dynamics of Illicit Financial Flows from India: 1948-2008', India lost a total of $213 billion in illicit financial flows (or illegal capital flight).

• India's aggregate illicit flows are more than twice the current external debt of $230 billion," the report said.

The list is just illustrative and not exhaustive.. If we invest the time to point all the scams of India, we will realize that the large % of such scams were performed by the So called Rulers of the Nation.. Our Leaders whom we trust upon. who receive salaries and more Importantly options of being Venal , sacrificing the fund of the People.

India would be the worlds richest country and super power in its economy if India would regain the money –deposited in the foreign Banks and the large amount of money deceived by the greedy Leaders in the Scams. Such large amount would morph the pathetic conditions of India.

But, there is no point of blaming someone for the scams and scandals...they got the opportunity..they realized that the people of this nation are mum like statues and will never raise their voice. So, they resorted the opportunities..and took advantage of the situation. Indian would not have experienced such giant scams and Scandels , if the Indian People always have a owl’s eye at the situations , if they were little conscious about the safety and security of the nation. But we were claded in the greed of Self Interest and therefore losted the Integrity of the nation.

No one else ...but we Ourself are responsible for the situations we are struggling with.

System is nothing, but a group of people. For our personal benefits we support these practices and the people involved in such practices…we run away from our responsibilities toward the nation. Everyone thinks only about their self-interests. Why we are always conscious about our Rights and not about our duties????

One’s right is other’s duty. One cannot enjoy his/her rights without giving respect to the rights of others.
No individual, organisation or country is perfect. That is the People, which make the nation , “ Perfect”. Why do we lack in many areas despite having a huge potential????? The answer lies with every individual.

We Ourself should have to take the Initative..We need to finish our part of responsibilities towards the nation…towards the citizens. And then only we can expect complete enjoy of our eights.

Simultaneously, there is need to raise our voice against the Corpulent amount of Corruption prevailing in the Society. By Speaking Out for the nation..we actually and indirectly benefiting ourselves…. Now is the time for people of all races, colors, origins and religions to raise their Voice against the corrupt practices of the greedy People and to show the awared front of United India.

‘Speak Out India’, is an initiative to unite the people across the country on single platform, to share their views , exhibit their talent and more Importantly to Integrate the Voice of India so as to contribute towards the cause of nation building. A call for the people to raise their voice and take a firm stand on issues affecting our national interest.

You can make a big difference to your community, Society, Nation and more Importantly to Yourself!!!!

Its the time to Speak Out....for the Nation...For the People...and for Yourself.

Our Integrated efforts can bring positive and unexpected changes for the Nation.

The Untouched India

Every One of us are very much conscious about the budget. The Railway budget, main budget of the nation, which is prepared by the Secretary level Officers-sitting in the Luxurious Air Conditioned office and later presented by the Hon’ble Finance Minister of India.

The so called ‘ Think tank’ of the Society, continuously expressing views on the positive and negative points of the Budget. The price rise in electronic items, petrol etc initiates the palpitation of heart of large people at the snow ball’s pace. Some experts are of the view that the budget is good for the People, while others think that budget is crushing for the middle class group, as the prices of daily usage items are being increased at a larger scale.

Amidst in the traffic of various views and suggestions, there are some people who are completely left untouched by the budget and the policies of the Government. They have no ides about the happenings of the nation. The even don’t know, who the P.M and C.M. are and what they are doing and for whom ???

Such People are completely unaware about any fact of the Nation, State or even their district. The thing they remember always is the methods of arranging meals for the family. They had to ramble around the places everyday for earning two meals for the family members. Winter, Summer and rainy season are equal for them. Nothing stops them from doing work. They have a transcendental will power as welll as dying need of food for the family. The term ‘ rest’ or ‘comfort’ are very new and abstraction for them. They hardly get the ‘option’ of ‘rest’ or ‘brake’. “No work” for them means “no food”. The hunger of the family induce and motivates them to forward every possible step to feed the family. They are over thrashed by the pathetic situations, they are living with.

They hardly bother about the Politics, Corruption, Terrorism or any other Problem of the nation.. For them the major problem or the most adventurous task is to earn for the livelihood, every new day. Their day start with miles of walk on the uneven farms, forests with the naked foot in the rainy, summer and winter seasons without even worrying about any pains of injuries or diseases.
The situation is rather an adventure for them. No electricity, uneven shanties and a desire of feeding the family.This is the entire gammut of their life.
Strangely they enjoy their life happily in their small paradises. For them life is a mission of earning and feeding the family.

Waking up early in the morning, rambling in the farms, ogling for food for the entire day, coming back at home, ending the day by enjoying food with the family. Interestingly, (Dinner with the family) this is the best moment for them . All their pains and tiredness automatically disappears when they see a smile on the faces of the family members. This is rather a celebration or an extravaganza for them.

Constantly, this is now established as the ingrained habit for these people. They feel satisfied by replenishing their energy rather sentiments, after feeding the family…which also helps them in getting rid of the dire pain of hunger.

Their life is so adventures and they learn new techniques of life every new day. Answering my question on Politics, one frail lady replied, “ Vo Sahaab aate hai kabhi kabhi…abhi to 3-4 saal pehle hi aaye the…mandir mein bhandara bhi diya..aur 10 din ka ration bhi dekar gaye…Sahab bahut acche hai…Jab bhi aate hai..kuch na kuch dekar jaate hai”. I asked again, “Sahab kitne din mein aate hai”, She replied, “ har 4-5 saal mein aate rehte hai….mein is gaon mein shaadi hokar aaye thi, tabse mere budhape tak, kareeb 6-7 baar aa chuke hai…(with a smiling face) she said, “Sahab bahut acche hai, jab jab aate hai, kuch na kuch dekar hi jaate hai”.

This is the dilemma of our country. The Politicians are sucking the people and the people are hardly aware about such facts. People don’t have any idea that the Politicians are deluding by their statements and exploiting them by investing a few hundreds rupees. They are completely unaware about the fa├žade look of the Politicians. Cunningly, they were always melled by the gullible words of the Politicians. They even don’t know that the Politicians are snatching their livelihood at the cost of “Bhandaras”, that too, on the name of God. The Politicians claim that they are forwarding various steps for Poverty Eradication.

They claims that the GDP of the Nation is now improved and now everyone is entitled to enjoy the right to education, right to food and the right to dignified life. All such statements stifled and hardly maintain their existence in the rural areas. Automatically the right to education disappers when we found that there is no school in the Village, the right to food and right to dignified life is infringed everyday..when the parent fails in arranging food for the family and the 3 years child struggles with the pains of hunger and ends their day by continuously weeping on floor and surrendering towards the situations.

The Condition of the People of the rural India is so pathetic that a normal person even cannot imagine.
This is not a unique or exemplary story, Instead such stories are rife and easily found in any place of the untouched rural India. There is great need to put forward certain concerted steps.

This is an strange but an important fact, revealing the reality of the untouched rural India, and require contemplated actions of development.

Every person experience Problems in life and he / she search for the solutions of such problems…But these people hardly gets time to act or even to think about the problems. Their mission of life is to feed the family. They are really living a commendable life…under the intense hardships. They enjoy the special privilege of the harships and therefore the unfathomable problems are doused towards them with a greater Intensity.. giving them no other option except to surrender and endure such hardships. Their cries and screams are now eloped with the worry of feeding the family.

I salutes them…They are The Real Indian Tigers…Unfortunately poofing from the society..
