Since late 80s issue of corruption has been discussed in every living room, in trains amongst co passengers, in schools,colleges, as a fav topic of debate, discussion; Is Corruption a bigger menace than terrorism or Is corruption making the country hollow!
We discussed every form of corruption endlessly, quoting examples, as if it was all pervading ; as to how money is being hoarded under beds, almirahs, how traders are avoiding sales tax, how inter state borders where excise people collect taxes are a big source of corruption.
How hardly 2% population is paying taxes and rest generating black money, how builders are minting money and flouting rules, diverting money from one project to another and fooling the customers, how some having black money are buying BENAMI properties.
How CAs are swindling money and how companies are appointing fake directors with fake addresses. How environment rules are used to harass businessmen and so on. At the end of the discussion we all used to unanimously declare; YAHAN KUCH NAHIN HO SAKTA.
We knew so much abt corruption and its various forms but have we bothered to find out how much in last 4yrs has happened to check every aspect of it! Many of us have not done that. Let me tell you.

One- Demonetisation brought every single penny hidden in closets into the bank.
So, as a result, almost Rs 1.75 lakh crore deposited in banks post note-ban and more than 18 lakh people with disproportionate income are under scrutiny. There is no money hidden now. Isn’t that an achievement!!
Two- It also helped identifying almost 16000 shell companies which CAs were using to park the ill gotten money of their clients. All these companies have been closed. And another 80000 are under scrutiny.
Three- Recent drive of KYC for Directors on Company Boards has revealed interesting facts. Nearly 2.1million individuals out of 3.3 million 'active directors' have failed to register their basic information under KYC requirement to be eligible for board positions in companies.
Appointing peons, drivers on Board of directors to fool authorities will b checked. The move was aimed at weeding out fake names being listed as genuine directors. It was part of Govts larger strategy to clamp down on shell cos that seek to operate outside regulatory boundaries.
Four- New tax payers has more than doubled to 56 lakhs from 28 lakhs last year.
Five- GST has changed it all. Now difficult to evade tax. It has done away with the need of Tax chungis, a hub of corruption. Govt has already reached a mark of 1lakh crores earnings p/m through GST.
It has made consumer items cheap and is one of the major factor for the vegetables being still comparatively cheap despite the hike of fuel prices. The total number of GSTR filed for the month of July up to August 31, 2018, is 67 lakh.
Six- RERA( Real Estate Regulatory Authority) in many states has started functioning and Buidlers have to get their projects registered. Yes there are teething problems but those are created by the States. As a result of this, Real estate corruption has received a solid jolt.
Seven- Govt notified the Benami Property Act which was pending since 2012. Till now all that mattered to taxman was source of money. As long as the amt was declared in the tax return, no questions were asked. Law against ‘benami’ deals has radically altered that settled belief.
It’s a dramatic change that affluent India is yet to come to terms with. To many, the attachment of SRK’s Alibaug bungalow by Income-Tax authorities has come as a rude wakeup call. The action has sparked off fears and brought to the fore far reaching implication.
Authorities have begun cracking down on benami assets and those who deposited large amts of cash in aftermath of DeMo but haven’t yet filed returns as it intensifies the war against black money. IT dept has already seized 541 properties, frozen accounts holding abt 1,800 crore.
I haven't quoted anything which has not been QUOTED either by RBI, NITI AAYOG or reputed newspapers. All this has happened in just 4yrs. DO THE PATHOLOGICAL HATERS UNDERSTAND THE MAGNITUDE AND COLLOSSITY OF THE TASK THAT HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN IN 4 YEARS!!
All states concerns were addressed through GST Council, Bill passed in LS/RS despite all the opposition, States were cajoled to ratify the Bill, simultaneously SOFTWARE prepared, tested, companies registered and Bill executed in a country like India.
It's time to once again quote Mr Modi from his answer that he gave when he received award of BEST CM.
It was during INDIA TODAY LEADERSHIP CONCLAVE in 2011 or 2012. He had said ;
In my opinion @narendramodi has done a colossal task. And if you can not appreciate this then i am sorry to say you must be ONE OF THOSE WHOSE ROZI - ROTI HAS BEEN HIT BY THESE MEASURES.

#S400Deal #S400_डिफेंस_डील
S-400 - Highlights and the deal:
This’s an air defence system being procured by Indian Air Force from Russia in a Govt to Govt deal, like Rafale.
Deal size $5.4 billion i.e ₹40,000 crores; the biggest ever defence deal by India.
The S-400 Surface-to-Air missile can destroy targets (whether static or enemy’s missile/fighter jets) even 400 Km away.
Its radars can track flying objects from a distance of 1000 Km; even if the size of a football; means entire Pakistan under its detection range.
It’s Russia’s most advanced defence system. (inducted in 2007) better than America’s ‘Patriot’ or anything else in the world. Its killing speed is 5 km/sec; and the best thing about it is it can easily be transported anywhere, including war field, and can be deployed in 5m flat.

It is an ancient and historical city that is 5000 years old. It is famous for spiritual as well as scientific reasons. It is described as the best city in Adi Brahma Puran and it is called mokshda and bhukti-mukti in Agni Puran and Garuda Puran.
There was a time when this city had been a capital of a big empire. It has a glorious history. As per religious books this city has never seen destruction, for God of destruction Mahakaal himself resides here. It has a Jyotirling out of the 12, 2 Shakti Peeths, the Sacred Kumbh.
As per Garuda Puran there are 7 cities that can provide salvation but importance of Ujjain is a little more. It's believed that it has foot prints of Lord Vishnu. Lord Rama himself performed his father’s last rites after his death at Ujjain.That place is called ‘Ram Ghat’.

There's no uproar about admitting all women at all times into Sabarimala. People have taken it with great equanimity and dry humour that has so characterised Hindu culture for millennia now. Already memes and jokes have started doing the rounds on WhatsApp.
People of my generation feel depressed, anguished. People with political axes to grind are expressing rage or glee depending on their affiliations. Older generation like those of my parents feel that the Lord knows what is best and acts through human agencies or through Nature.
The biggest circus, the electronic media, is stirring up such a cockfight. People who have no stake in the issue except political, act up with anchors playing ringmasters and get paid for their appearance.

जानिए राहुल गांधी के बारे में जो देश का प्रधानमंत्री बनने के ख्वाब देख रहा है।

बात सन 1989 की है। XIIth में मात्र 65% marks होने के बावजूद राहुल गाँधी को दिल्ली के St. Stephens College ने BA (History Hons) में दाखिला दे दिया था। इस बात को लेकर मीडिया में काफी बवाल हुआ।
जब दूसरे छात्रों के लिए cut off मार्क 90% के लगभग था तो राहुल को किस आधार पर 65% पे ही दाखिला दे दिया गया? मीडिया में प्रश्न उठा कि क्या राहुल गाँधी को ईसाई होने की वजह से कम अंक होने के बावजूद दाखिला दिया गया है?
अब गाँधी परिवार सार्वजनिक रूप से यह स्वीकार करना नहीं चाहता था कि राहुल गाँधी कैथोलिक क्रिस्चियन हैं। इसलिए St. Stephen's प्रशासन से यह कहलवाया गया कि राहुल गाँधी को sports quota में एडमिशन मिला है।

Ever wondered why is it that we worship Lord Ganesh first! According to the Ganapati Upanishad, he appeared even before the creation of nature (prakriti) and consciousness (purusha). This is an important link as to why he's is worshiped before beginning any task.
According to the yogic perspective, anything we do has to fall under one of the two categories: material or spiritual. It's believed that Lord Ganesh rules the 'muladhara chakra' of our body. 'Muladhara' is the interface between the material and the spiritual worlds.
He controls both these worlds. He gives us material enjoyments in this world and liberates us from endless cycle of birth and death. According to yogic principles, our material life and spiritual journey starts from the 'Muladhara' chakra which is controlled by him.

Why are people not thinking abt the huge savings which have come from prices falling in all other commodities, goods & services. Why part of it couldn't be used to spend extra about rupees thousand per month towards petrol for their Vehicles?
Look at the substantial savings that have been done by the population of India, in that time when the global crude oil prices rose through the roof:
Sugar from Rs 45 to Rs 31, that's indeed a fall.
Eat sweets, Not diesel, petrol! Don't just cry foul for the sake of it!
Dal from Rs 125 to Rs 60, that's indeed a fall.
Eat Dal Thadka, Not diesel, petrol.😂

Onions from Rs 45 to Rs 8, that's indeed a fall.
Eat dosa utthappam, Not diesel,petrol.😂

LED bulbs from Rs 400/- to Rs 60/-, that's indeed a fall ! Brighten up the home without a DG set.👍
