Some History on Judiciary
1. 73 IG appoints Justice AN Ray as CJI superceding 3 senior judges of SC. JM Shelat,KS Hegde,AN Grover resign in protest.
Congress gives a statement in the parliament " It's a duty of the Govt to appoint as CJI one who is close to our philosophy and point of view".And today they talk of judicial independence!
2. 1975. Justice Jagmohan Sinha was to deliver Judgement in Rajnarayan Vs IG electoral malpractice case. He gets a call "If you indict Indira Gandhi- tell your wife not to fast this Karva Chauth." Justice Sinha calmly replied " fortunately my wife expired just two months back"
And he went on to deliver the historic judgment that became a leading light for those seeking judicial independence and the harbinger of the biggest abrogation and insult to the constitution by the Congress, the declaration of Emergency; at his peril of course!
3. 1976. Justice AN Ray pays back partially the favours done in appointing him as CJI in the case Shivkant Shukla Vs ADM Jabalpur. The bench headed by him declares the abrogation of fundamental rights during Emergency as just and rightful by a majority decision.
The only dissenting judge was Justice HR Khanna, who told his colleagues on the bench " Can you look yourself in the eye?"
The bench comprised of Justices AN Ray, HR Khanna, MH Beg, YV Chandrachud, and PN Bhagwati.All except Justice HR Khanna became CJI subsequently.
Justice Khanna was punished by Indira Gandhi and Congress for his dissent and upholding of the fundamental rights granted by the constitution, by superceding him and making Justice MH Beg the CJI!!
Justice MH Beg on retirement was made director of NATIONAL HERALD, news paper wholly owned by Congress. Regarding fraudulent acquisition of its property, both present and past president are out on bail from the court. And Justice Beg accepted the appointment!!!!
So much for the 'independence of judiciary' that RaGa and his coterie are spewing slogans about. This doesn't end here.In1980 when IG came back to power,Justice MH Beg was made Chairman of minorities commission. In 1988 he was awarded 'Padma Vibhushan' by Rajiv Gandhi.
4. 1962. Even more intriguing is case of Justice Bahrul Islam! He was Congress MP of Rajya Sabha in 62. He tried his hand at popular politics and fought, on Congress ticket, the Lok Sabha Elections and lost. He again was made a Rajya Sabha MP in 68. On Congress benches of course!
He resigned from Rajya Sabha in 72 and was appointed judge of Guvahati High Court! He retired in 1980. But after IG came back to power in 1980, he was again elevated to Justice Bahrul Islam, this time of the SC ! 9 months after his retirement from the Guwahati High Court!
IG needed to control benches as there were no of cases running in SC regarding atrocities during Emergency. He proved useful.He resigned a month before his superannuation from SC and contested for Lok Sabha from Barpeta. As elections could not be held, he was made Rajya Sabha MP
5.The party in 1993 saved the skin of Justice Ramaswamy during impeachment proceedings for corruption after 11 out of 14 charges were proved, by abstaining from voting. It was Kapil Sibbal who defended the judge on the floor of the Parliament.
6.Justice Deepak Mishra was appointed by the Congress but he is succumbing neither to inducement nor blackmail of Congress. This has rattled the CONs so they are back to their old dirty/dangerous tricks. The nation knows the truth and is watching. @MilikTailor @SeaSkipper

#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.

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.

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.
