Another case of Media-Political bonhomie. Is Digvijay Singh comments and press statements basically sound bytes to increase media TRP's? Is this a case where media is paying politicians to make silly controversial statements to increase TRP's and provide pointless debating points? What ever it maybe, this exchange again is a tip of the iceberg on Media-Political nexus. Media in India has become completely unreliable to say the least.
How can we expect unbiased reporting when you share such bonhomie. No wonder media never reported Sheila Dixit corruption CWG even after being named in report .
How can we expect unbiased news from
Indian Media ?
This is only tip of iceberg.
Sachin Pilot of Congress & Barkha Dutt of NDTV . Are they celebrating media-politics nexus ?
Paid Media is not unfounded after all .

Proposed Sri Ram Mandir @ Ram Janma Bhoomi , Ayodhya
by Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
As per historians, since 1528 there have been at least 76 armed conflict in which over 300,000 Hindus sacrificed their lives to restore the Ram Janma Bhoomi temple.
Summary of these conflicts is as follows:
1. Babar's reign (1528-1530) - Hindus launched 4 attacks in which 100,000 people were killed.
2. Humayun's reign (1530-1556) - Hindus launched 10 separate initiatives to regain control.
3. Akbar's reign (1556-1605) - Hindus fought 20 battles.
4. Aurangzeb's reign (1658-1707)- Hindus fought 30 battles. One such battle was led by Guru Gobind Singh in which Aurangzeb?s army was defeated.
5. Four years later, Aurangzeb?s again attacked Ayodhya and regained control after killing 10,000 Hindus.
6. Sahdat Ali (1798-1814) - Hindus fought 5 battles.
7. Nasir-uddin Haidar (1814-1837) - Hindus fought 3 battles.
8. Wajid Ali Shah (1847-1857) - Hindus fought 2 battles.
9. British Rule (1912-1934) - Hindus fought 2 armed conflicts.
Hindus never gave up on one of their holiest places. Hence the only conflict free periods were when they were allowed to worship inside the disputed structure. For example, in order to avoid further conflict, during the latter part of his reign Akbar allowed Hindus to build a platform known as 'Ram Chabutra', and to install and worship images of Ram Parivar in the so called Babri compound. This practice was later opposed by Aurungzeb which resulted in most battles for the control of the shrine during his reign.
In 1751 A.D. Maratha Sardar Malhar Rao Holkar after defeating the Pathans in the plains of Ganga and Yamuna, asked Nawab Safderjang to hand over Ayodhya, Kashi and Prayag to the Peshwas. In a letter dated February 23, 1756, Nanasaheb Peshwa asked Sardar Scindia to annex Ayodhya and Kashi as
the handover of these holy places was already promised to Raghoba Dada by Suja-uddoula.
Later in 1789 A.D. Sardar MahadJi Scindia did annex Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi, but due to his untimely demise was not able to restore the temples of Ram Janma Bhoomi, Krishna Janma Bhoomi and Kashi Vishweshwar back to Hindus.
Joseph Tieffenthaler (1710 - 1785), an Austrian Jesuit priest toured Oudh (Ayodhya) region between 1766 and 1771 A.D. His account of Indian History and geography was translated and published in French in 1786 A.D.
Tieffenthaler states 'The Emperor Aurungzeb destroyed the fortress called Ramkot and built at the same place a Mohammedan temple with 3 domes. Others say that it has been built by Babar. One can see 14 columns made of black stone .. which bear carvings ... Subsequently Aurungzeb, and some say Babar destroyed the (heathen) place in order to prevent heathens from practicing their ceremonies.
However they have continued to practice their religious ceremonies in both the places(inside the 3 domed Babri structure and the compound), knowing this to have been birth place of Rama, by going around it 3 times and prostrating on ground".
According to the British records by Thornton (1854 A.D.) and Carnegie (1870 A.D.) till 1855 A.D. Hindus continued to worship Ram in the 3 domed structure. During the First War of Independence of 1857 the local Muslim leader Amir Ali persuaded the Muslims to finally hand over the disputed place to Hindus and jointly fight with the British.
However the British won the War of 1857 and Amir Ali and Hindu leader Baba Ram Charan Das were publicly hanged from a tree near the Ram Janma Bhoomi.
The British subsequently put a railing wall between Babri structure and the courtyard and separated the Muslim worshipers who got the Babri structure and Hindus had no choice but to do puja outside in the courtyard. Hindus continued to worship at the disputed structure and never gave up struggle to regain control of Ram Janma Bhoomi since 1528.
Recent History - 1934 thru 1992 :
In 1934, during the armed conflict between Hindus and Muslims the Babri structure was damaged. Since 1936, the Babri structure was an abandoned building and did not function as a community mosque for local muslims. There is no evidence of any Mutawalli or Imam or Muazzin or Khatib or Khadim having functioned as the mosque management as such for the up keep and maintenance of the 'mosque'.
A Waqf report dated September 16, 1938 showed 'Syed Mohammad Zaki' as a Mutawalli. But later the District Waqf Commissioner found that Mutawalli Zaki was a Shia, an opium addict and most unsuited for the duties of a Mutawalli. Meanwhile the Sunni Waqf Board claimed that Babri mosque was under its control.
A report dated December 10, 1949 by the Waqf inspector Mohammad Ibrahim, to the U.P. Sunni Central Board of Waqf, states that 'due to the fear of Hindus and Sikhs? NO ONE OFFERED NAMAZ IN THE SAID 'MOSQUE'.
On December 23, 1949 the image of 'Ramalalla' appeared in the disputed structure and Hindus resumed prayers and worship inside. On December 29, 1949 Additional Magistrate Markandey Singh confiscated the building and handed over the posession to Priya Dutta Ram as Receiver, who assumed charge of the same on January 5, 1950.
After almost 12 years, on December 18, 1961 the Sunni Waqf Board filed the law suit seeking the possession of the disputed structure. This law suit was liable to be dismissed since the then prevalent statute of limitation for property takeover of 6 years had already passed.
Since December 23, 1949 there have been daily Hindu prayers and worship at the Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple. Yet, Babri was not a functional Mosque, and it has been a functional temple for atleast 42 years.
"Mosques built after destroying temples are the sign of slavery and Muslims should hand over the same to Hindu Society" -Mahatma Gandhi in 'Navjeevan' dated July 17, 1937. "Hindus profess secularism because they are cowards and are afraid of Muslim countries." - Syed Shahabuddin - Convenor of Babri Masjid Coordination Committee (BMCC) in 'Sunday' dated March 20, 1983.
On April 7-8, 1984 the Dharma Sansad (religious congregation) took decision to launch a movement for replacement of the existing mosque-turned temple with a proper temple structure.
Options offered by Hindu Leadership:
Prior to December 6, 1992 Hindus had offered following options: Muslims should hand over the Babri structure as a goodwill gesture to Hindus. The unused Babri mosque has no religious significance to Muslims what so ever, (since as per the administrative officials in Faizabad, Of the 26 Mosques in Ayodhya region just half are in use for offering namaz and the rest are in a bad shape), hence this is not an unreasonable request. If that is not acceptable, then this nonfunctional mosque should be relocated.
Hundreds of mosques in other Islamic countries have been relocated for minor reasons such as road expansion. So there is ample precedent for it. Since the location of Ram Janma cannot be changed the temple cannot be moved. If the superstructure is important to the Muslims then it can be relocated to another site, the way Abu Simbel temple in Egypt was moved out of the way of the Aswan Dam. Hindus will bear all the relocation expenses.
India has demonstrated technology for this operation since recently 800 year old Kudavelli Sangameshwara temple in Andhra Pradesh was taken apart and rebuilt 600 meters from the original site. Some Shia leaders had agreed to the latter plan. However to the prominent Muslim leadership (BMCC and BMAC) all such proposals were futile. The biggest concession they were willing to make was to allow a Ram temple next to the Babri structure (meaning the sign of Muslim conquest will continue to look down upon the temple, as an insult to Hindus).
The events of December 6, 1992 should be viewed in light of these facts.

Iam reposting views i shared with my friend on my Facebook over allowing 51% FDI in retail sector . Mariappan is former student of IISc Banglore and Senior Scientist with GoI. He lives in Banglore.
Govt has okayed 51% FDI in Retail sector, since then Parliament is stalled. Every one had an opinion either in its support or against and it led to a Chaos everywhere . So I thought like any Aam-Admi , I too shud have an Opinion on FDI. For last 4 days had studied extensively abt FDI in retail sector , more i studied, more i got confused. So i decided to stay Neutral on the subject. What iam 'awe' at opening FDI is the manner it was bought in with out proper debate. If FDI is so beneficial to Farmers then why restrict it to just 51% , it shud have been opened to 100% entry. Prime Minister MMSingh says it is pro-reform policy , if it so why did he opposed in 2003 when BJP wanted to open FDI to 26% ?? Bottom Line is, its all game plan of Congress to divert the attention of Public from Inflation, JanLokpal , Chidambarams invovement in 2G scam etc...
Was allowing FDI in Retail sector a greater slap by MMSingh on the face of SoniaG ? Atleast Iam convinced. Much to the shock of Madame, MMSingh ignored Sonia & Congress and moved ahead with FDI . Now Sonia is left with no choice but follow footsteps of MMSingh. Off-late there was Buzz that SoniaG planning to replace MMS with AK.Antony or Meira Kumar . PM has cleverly knocked hornet nest , which will keep him in chair for some more days. Sonia used Sanjay Singh to show her displeasure towards MMSingh's FDI and also Anthony to make Kerala Cong pass a resolution against FDI. Sonia can show her dissent but now can not replace MMSingh as long as he enjoys support of allie parties . I feel MMS is no more a Puppet Prime Minister , who dance to Sonias tune. The only way she can make MMS resign is , show the carrot and promote, make him President of India in 2012.
If Retail American Giants like WALMART cudnt save American Farmers & American economy , how wud its entry into India be helpful to our Farmers ?? I was shocked when i read that in India every year 40 % of produced food grains/ Veggies/Fruits get destroyed coz of non availability of secured Godowns and Cold Storages . With FDI investments pouring in we mite see big leap in num of Cold storages coming up in rural side. Thats one encouraging point in opening up FDI in retail sector. Do you know most of the food grains are damaged by Rats ??Building Cold Storages is not at all complicated one , it does not need Rocket Science to build one. Then knowing 40% loss of Food Grains.Veggies , why dint our govt encouraged farmers to build the plants ? Or is it that Indian Farmer believe in traditional storage rather than taking his harvest to cold storage ?? In any case, loss of 40 % food grains is not pardonable.
Why oppose 51% opening of FDI in retail market, when we see Chinese goods are dumped cheaply into market. When we cudnot stop cheap Chinese products , then why oppose when Billions of US$ are waiting to come into country's retail industry ?? These incoming US$'s may give boost to Indian economy and arrest Inflation.
Cheap Chinese products are manufactured in China and dumped in Indian Market , thus they are not investing in Indian market and moreover they are depriving us from employment. This is serious issue and shud be dealt seriously. Maybe opening up FDI in retail market will arrest of Chinese Products into Indian market.
If 51% FDI is allowed in Retai Industry , we will see exit of millions of Small traders from market. Thats really bad , but we protected them for last 60 years , how long do they need protection. Even after 6 decades of State protection , if they cant stand on their own and fight then whom wud they blame?? . Its saddening but this the truth about Indian traders.
What angers me about Indian retail trader is despite the state protection wot did they done for the society. They never do proper billing , evade taxes , rob costumers with high rates . And above all wot troubles me is Indian trader plays with customers health by doing Adulterationin food items. Show me one Kirana store or Sweet shop anywhere which doesnt do Adulteration ??? As i write this, my Blood is boiling remembering their Adulteration acts. Feel like Cursing them.
Mariappan: Raj, pour as much angst you have against the indian traders, but what makes you think Walmart or any other foreign retailer is going to be better? They will bring in BT modified untested foods in the market, they would undercut the indian traders to begin with and when the indian trader is driven out of the market, they will make a cartel and monopolise the whole trade, at the stage the customer will have no choice but to go to them. Is that OK with you? As for government protection, what has the government protected them from? After 60 years has the government built in enough food storage infrastructure, has the government ever made any sincere effort to protect the traders from even the rodents that gulp the major part of the produce. The failure of the government should not be equated with poor practices of the trader.
My Take : I in my first post made myself clear that iam Neutral on opening up Retail sector to big overseas player. I was just posting all the 'stray' thoughts that made a place inside my head.
BT seed is already in the market since PV Narsimaha Rao days. FDI has least to do with it . My region Telangana is an victim of BT farming . After paddy cotton is grown widely in Telangana , but since farmers choose to move BT Cotton there is devastating turn of events . One American Cotton seed combany "Kargil" has destroyed many farmers lives . Despite warning by Agri-Scientists they still stick to "Kargil" seeds. Iam witness to daily deaths of these farmers in my Dist. The amount of pesticide it need to grow/survive is very much alarming , its caused in heavy health hazards . Its an big issue , ill ponder on it on diff day .
So coming back to FDI , it will eliminate the middle man and thus "may" be benificial to local farmer . Most of these companies buy directly from farmers , this has been their policy eveyrwhere. So when they eliminate "middleman" farmer get gud price over his harvest and it will lead to reduction in "cost" . This will further bring down the PRICES. So ypur fear fo Price rice doesnot stand in scrutiny.
Ypur another fear of erasing small/medium Indian players also does not stand . Coz if you read the Govt document , it clearly stated that the Big players can open their "Malls" only in Mjaor Cities. It means hardly 5o cities are thrown open for competition and remaingin thousands of towns and villages are still "protected" by state.
FDI in retail sector will unleash a big competition in retail market thus players have to be competitive in price and quality to stay in the market . Dont you think this price-war will be benificial to Billion Indian Customer. Adulteration food items will stop which has taken lives of many. Did you notice during last Diwali above 50% of Sweets were contaminated/adulterated . If this is the situation in National capital , then how bad it cud be in Towns.
When you rake up issue of 'why dint govt built storage houses' brings me laughs. I smell a 'socialist' in you. Did you read Chanakyas "Arth Sastra" , in it Chanakya clearly says that Govt duty is to Protect its citizens from External attacks and internal security . He specifically writes that Govt shud not venture into doing business . So i strongly belive his Arth Sastra principles. Govt has no duty/responsibility to build Cold Storages , its not his business. Farmers and Private entrepreneurs have to deal with it . Can you show me one area where Govt running businesses have a success growth in past decade . Let societs on its own evolve and design wot they neeed . Govt shud be an facilitator , shus work as an "catalyst" but not get into doing business
Mariappan : Raj, some of your arguements are perhaps ill informed or u chose to ignore the facts. The Retail market is allowed to be set up in places having a population of 2 lakhs, now imagine the havoc they are going to cause, the government which says a minimum of 10 lakh population is required to avail JNNURM funds doesnt mind giving licences for places with 2 lac population. You are quoting chanakya, fine, but has any government in india till date followed any of his tactics leave alone practice his principles. Fine if the business of the government is not to do business, why the hell, is the government involved in everything from making newsprint to broadcasting? Why is the government fixing minimum support price for farmers, why is the FCI buying grains from farmers and then allowing it to rot in their godowns? Again you are quoting just one instance of BT Cotton which is killing farmers, now imagine if the same BT food grains are marketed by these retailers, what would be the fate of our health and more specifically our stomachs? As for adulteration, this is a universal phenomenon, even in the so called advanced country like Europe, we have seen how avian flu and mad cow disease propagated. Here the direct cause may not be deliberate adulteration, but selling contaminated food is still worse than adulterating. Eliminating the middle man in the indian context is next to impossible my friend, it is not that the farmer is unaware the profits made by middleman, it is the need of the farmer that makes him depend on the middleman. A major part of the problem lies in our culture, our traditions and rituals. Everyone wants to follow rituals and you know rituals are money consuming and where else does the farmer go for money than the middleman. Do you think Walmart or any retail chain will give money to the farmer before his produce his ready for the market? As for price war between the retailers and then reduction in prices, has it happened with coca-cola, pepsi or should i say has your thums up rates come down? In fact the goli-soda still sells at 2 rupees, it is also coloured carbonated water without the marketing blitz. We have shell and reliance in the petroleum sector, did they ever reduce the price when the international prices came down, no, on the other hand when the government run petrol pumps operated at a thinner margin, these guys shut shop.
My Take : Govt Doc relased via source has put a restriction that Big players can enter in those cities which has more than 10 lakh population . If my knowledge is right it stands somewhere between 55-60 cities in India. As i said remaining cities are protected by state. How Long ? No One knows? My Question is why shud we protect an Industry for decades together? We protected them for 6 decades by not allowing big-players into market , has it done any good for them ? Nope. The become lazy and never evolved any strategy to upgrade . Ok tell me , your neighborhood Kirana guy is there for long time making money , did he ever upgraded his Shop , never . Thats what is killing him, every time he has an problem he looks towards govt to bail him out. I know fighting a big player is tough , but he has to realise that theirs no escape . Fight and if you have to DIe, Die like a Martyr or go for Kill and come out Triumphantly. State protection is bad to them, thats what i feel.
I remember those days when Pepsi made entry into India . Parle(Thums UP & Maaza) was leader in the market , infact they were monopoly . Parles Ramesh Chauhan dint believed in his product , out of fear he sold all his Products to Coca-Cola . When you dont prepare your entrepreneur for competition this is what happens , fearing the worst he meekly surrendered to Coca-Cola. Even after 20 yrs of sell out , Thums-Up has majority of market . If only Ramesh chauhan knew to stand to competition , today he wud have beed world leader in Aerated Drinks sector. Regarding ur taunts on increase in price of "my" Thums Up , is , its very much but Obvious to rise in price levels in 20 years. Price rice is seen all over , and same applies to Thums-Up as well. To understand the Price rise one shud study the Inflation and Rupee- US Dollar exchange value. its the market which determines the price .
Reg' your qustion on why govt into newsprint, broadcast and 100 other things , that what , it shudnt be anywhere which is called as business. One and only duty of Government shud be protect geographical boundaries and install a lawful governance system internally . Govt shud stop running Airlines, Railways, Public transport or any such function which can be a profit oriented .

Service activities of Sai.
Many men and women of high learning, achievements and wealth in India and outside were not just attracted to him. They revered him as the Divine Incarnate. It was his charisma that built a matchless organisation manned by hundreds of thousands of volunteers drawn from the highest echelons to the lowest strata of society. The number of volunteers registered to render from menial to clerical service exceeded six lakh. Baba’s entire work rests on this devoted cadre. A serving IAS officer would give up his job and join him as his clerk; a young IT professional would forgo his fortune, start cleaning the bhajan hall; a businessman heading a billion dollar firm would leave his business and look after one of Baba’s projects. A count of less than 1/6 of the total volunteers (91,753 to be precise) shows this telling break-up — doctors 3,173; engineers 9,760; lawyers/chartered accountants 3,521; professors and teachers 18,226; farmers and workers 41,295; industrialists 11,350; bankers 3,606; judges 71; legislators 167; journalists 261. Any more testimony needed for his charisma, organising skill and leadership?
His trusts have a corpus of several hundreds of crores of rupees. But never did he ask for donations; and he never hesitated to reject the wrong donors. Donors recount how Baba accepted their offerings after making them wait for months to test their sincerity to give. He kept all the money he received in trust for the poor and the needy in his times and in future. Even the undeposited cash and gold in his personal chamber — the Yajur Mandir — made their way to the trusts after him.
His work for education, poor and medical relief is unmatched by any charity in the world. Take two unbelievable illustrations first: Anantapur district in Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh was known for water scarcity and water salinity and fluorides. The government did nothing for 50 years to address this basic problem, even after Andhra Pradesh got a chief minister from the same district. Unable to bear the suffering of the poor, Baba decided to do in 18 months what the government could not in 50 years, namely to provide potable drinking water to the whole district of Anantapur — yes the whole district! He declared in November 1995, “Today it is ‘Raalaseema’ (rocky region). It must be transformed into ‘Ratnala Seema’ (land that glitters like diamond)”. In just 18 months it was done! See what a massive work it was. Laying of some 2,000 kilometres — yes 2,000 — of water pipelines; building 43 sumps of 1 to 25 lakh litres capacity; constructing 18 balancing reservoirs of 3 to 10 lakh litres capacity — where? — on top of hillocks; erecting 270 overhead reservoirs of the capacity of 40,000 to 3 lakh litres; installing 1,500-plus concrete pre-cast cisterns of 2,500 litres capacity, each attached with four taps for the villagers to draw water. Result, drinking water became available to the poorest of the poor in 750 villages in the district.
The 9th Planning Commission document gratefully recorded: The Sathya Sai Charity “has set up an unparalleled initiative of implementing on their own, without any state’s budgetary support, a massive water supply project….to benefit 731 scarcity and fluoride/salinity affected villages and a few towns in Anantapur district in a time frame of 18 months.” Baba’s trusts repeated this work in fluoride-affected Medak and Mehboobnagar districts; provided water supply to some 4.5 lakh poor in 179 villages in Medak, and some 3.5 lakh poor in 141 villages in Mehboobnagar. In the three districts, more than 1,000 villages and 20 lakh people benefited.
Not just in Andhra. Seeing the poor people in Chennai suffer for want of water, Baba declared on January 19, 2002: “The rich can buy water sold by tanker services. And what will the poor do? I have decided to work towards bringing drinking water to Madras, no matter how difficult and how costly the task is”. His central trust took up the construction of 63 kilometres stretch of the 150 km canal in the Telugu Ganga scheme that had been left incomplete. The result was: 3 lakh hectares of agricultural land got irrigation in Nellore and Chittoor districts and the city of Chennai, Krishna water. These projects cost over Rs 500 crore.
The speciality hospitals in Puttaparthi and Bengaluru have, just to mention a few activities, treated over a million outpatients; performed over 7 lakh cardiac and neuro diagnostic tests, over 35,000 cardiac and neuro surgeries, as many cath procedures, over 40,000 eye surgeries; a million lab and blood tests. Yet the most critical department in any hospital, the billing department, is absent in both hospitals. The entire service is free. If these services had been charged it would have meant a bill of over couple of thousand crores. Baba’s trusts also run world class, but totally free, educational institutions, cultural centres and music colleges.
But after Baba passed away, what is the public discourse about? Not about the ongoing work for relief of poverty, suffering and education. Not about the lakhs of volunteers Baba has enlisted for work. But about what filth some relatives of Baba, whom he had kept away, had said against those who Baba had trusted to carry on his work; and about some Rs 35 lakh, meant for constructing the Samadhi of Baba, which the police had seized which became sensational news. Recall Katherine Mayo, gutter inspector, as Mahatma Gandhi called her?

Deepavali 2011 date in India is October 26. The next day of Diwali 2011 is the Vikram New Year. In North India, Diwali commemorates the return of Lord Ram along with Sita and Lakshman from his 14 years of exile after killing Ravana. Generally in South India, Deepavali is celebrated to commemorate the killing of the demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna. In Karnataka, it is observed as Bali Paadyami to mark the day of King Bali's return to his subject once a year. In Kerala, Deepavali is a low-key affair and some people consider it as the return of Lord Ram from exile.There may be difference in date and history but the central theme that good wins over evil, remains the same.
Do not Burn Crackers this Deepavali

When Telangana people stopped a few Andhra buses on NH-9 yesterday, the Seemandhra leaders were livid. So, we wanted to remind them a piece of their history. We wanted to remind them about the orgy of violence that fetched them the Andhra state in 1953. The following newslips showcase the ugly side of the Andhra statehood movement. The death of one person – Potti Sriramulu triggered these violent incidents.These newsclips also prove how peaceful the Telangana statehood movement is even after the death of over 600 Telanganites in the ongoing agitation.
A wave of hysterical emotion swept the Andhra, Rayalaseema regions after Potti Sriramulu’s death in December, 1952. Here are some glimpses of what happened.
In the words of historian KV Narayana Rao
A wave of hysterical emotion swept the Andhra, Rayalaseema regions after Potti Sriramulu’s death in December, 1952. Here are some glimpses of what happened.
In the words of historian KV Narayana Rao
“the disturbances reached a climax on 16 December. Mobs raided the Vijayawada railway station. Wagons were looted. Seven pople were killed in police firings in different places. The damage to railway properties was estimated by the government at Rs. 50 Lakhs.”
A.N Rai, Deputy Inspector General of Police, of that time wrote this in his report:
“The local terrorists took advantage of the unsettled conditions and started vehement campaign against the Congress and Praja Socialists. The agitation on 16-12-52 started with hartals and processions in Nellore town and by the evening the attention of the agitators was diverted to the railway station yard where railway properties were damaged and vehicles burnt. They also tried to over-power the police force that attempted to stop the further damage by the mob”
The Hindu Newspaper dated Dec 17, 1952 reports thus:
“Vijayawada railway sation and surrounding were occupied by a mob, and the railway officials and worked were hoved out of the station precincts at noon today”
“the Southern Railway head-quarters have received information that a huge mob raided the Vijayawada railway station. looted the entire building and cut off all communications.”
“At Vijayawada Railway Station, a big crowd of labourers, including men and women, broke open about 300 loaded wagons stabled in the yards with rice, paddy or wheat and carried away on their heads”
The Hindu Newspaper dated Dec 17, 1952 reported that locals looted rice bags at a Railway Station near Navabpalem in West Godavari district.Wide spread destruction railway properties was reported from all districts of Andhra and Rayalaseema. Some notable incidents of arson were reported from Guntur, where some unruly elements damaged the railway station and burnt some records in the Parcel Office.
Railway stations at Rajahmundry, Duggirala, Tenali, Ongole bore the brunt of the agitators ire.
While scores of agitators were gunned down by security forces, the Seemandhra leaders did not record their deaths in the history books. No memorial was set up anywhere in the Seemandhra region.
This contrasts to the level of false propaganda that surrounds Potti Sriramulu’s fast unto death to claim Madras city.The reason is not difficult to understand.
The Seemandhra leadership never wanted the world to know about the orgy of violence that was unleashed preceding the Andhra state formation.
But, can they hide this bitter truth for ever?

Jinnah & GandhiSeptember 1944 Bombay, Gandhi talks over Jinnahs overtures for a Pakistan
Hidden enemies are more dangerous than open enemies. Gandhiji was one such hidden enemy of Hindus. But he tried to be the saint , where infact he was pure political leader he did nothing but paralyzing the Hindus in the name of non violence. Gandhi is real blot in the history of India ,his charm of Non-Violence is laced with timidness and masked with treachery and this charm was over cast only on Hindus .
His Peace preaching’s among Hindus made them like Eunuchs and gave the all needed encouragement for the Muslim thugs. This eventually led to vivesection of our Motherland . He always fancied himself by always rushing and fasting to save muslims from Hindu retaliation but forgetting to save Hindus when they were first attacked. Gandhi is all within his born right to let himself killed , or see his relatives getting killed....But he has absolutely no right to ask any person of any religion to get killed .That akins to suicide.
Spiritual leaders dont do any fasting every time if their demands are not met. But Gandhiji did fasting everythime anything went against his wish .This is disgusting . If he was a saint which I doubt , infact if he was not then he should have never took part in active politics. Saints dont hold any position in politics, but they advise the leaders and guide the masses .
.No man is greater than country but gandhi tried to be greater than our country by projecting himself as larger than life Image and as sole torch bearer of freedom movement . This is definetly kaliyuga where the sickest of vile like Gandhi are still adored and most honourable, brave , righteous like Subash Bose and Savarkar are mocked .
Gandhi as an Leader failed on every front ,infact as an freedom fighter he delayed our Independence . He made so many historical blunders like of supporting Khilafat movement , praising the killers of Swami Shradanand, Forcibly removing Netaji from his post as congress president and granting 55 crores to Pakistan that in turn proved to be costly in coming days .
His ‘saintliness’ was an mask — his political idea of clubbing religion and politics was a disaster for Hindu's . Unlike Sri Aurobindo, he never left politics to live as an Spirtual man , Gandhi was a politician to the core.

తెలంగాణా లో కాలచక్రము ముందుకు వేల్లనంతున్నది,
RTC బస్సు టైర్లు తిరగనంతున్నాయి,
రైలు చక్రాలు పట్టాల పై కదలనంతున్నాయి,
సింగరేణి బావి నుండి భోగ్గు బైటకు రానంతున్నాయి
బడి గంటలు మొగనంతున్నాయి
విద్యుత్ తీగలు మరలబడుతున్నాయి
విద్యార్దులు ఉద్యమం అంటున్నారు,
ఉద్యోగాస్తుల్లు ప్రభుత్వని దిక్కరిస్తున్నారు,
రైతులు కొడవళ్ళు పడుతున్నారు ,
కార్మికులు పిడికిళ్ళు ఎత్తుతున్నారు,
గృహినిల్లు నడుము భిగిస్త్తునారు.
అందరిది ఒకే ఆరాటం, ఒకే పోరాటం,
ఒకే నినాదం... జై తెలంగానం.
సకల తెలంగానం ఒకే మాట,
ప్రత్యెక రాష్ట్రం వచ్చేదాక సమ్మె బాట

Telangana Farmers in villages are made to suffer by the crooked Seemandhra Govt by cutting of Power. There is an 12 hours power cut in TG Villages, where as, no Power cut in Seemandhra villages. Govt wants to showcase the Strike and make Telanganites suffer from all corners. To avoid Power Cuts why SA-Govt is not opening Nagarunasagar & Srisailam gates? These Dams are full , and can be used in generating more Hydro Power. Nope it wont, coz they store the water for 3rd Crop in SA. In TG we hardly have 2nd crop, but SA'ites make us suffer by robbing our Power & Water for their 3rd crop . Time has come to teach them a lesson.
The present despicable Seemandra Govt has turned Murderous out of HATE towards Telangana and can stoop to any level to safeguard its hegemony
Majority of Agriculture in Telangana is dependent on Bore Wells , with out power Bore wells wont work . In another 30-35 days 70% of Crops(paddy) in TG will come for Harvesting . This is the time when Crops need maximum water, knowing this well and make our farmers suffer Seemandhra Govt has put FWD 12 Hrs Power Cut in villages . My heart grieves for my farmers. Only Mother Nature with Rains can save our Telangana farmers from these SA-Rakshasas . 2 Crore people are directly or indirectly dependent of farming sector in Telangana .
Gates of Nagarjuna Sagar & Srisailam Dams shud be opened to generate Hydro electricity at-once. These dams are full with water , they can generate Hydro Power continuously for next 2 months with the avail stored water . But Seemandhra govt wont do , it want to teach a lesson to Telanganites. I hv never seen such a FASCIST govt which put its own subjects to such hardships . Britishers were far better than these Seemandhraites .
Seemandhraites are enjoying our sufferings, they think they wont be affected. Now the time has come to take them with us in suffering. Cut off all the power lines going towards Seemandhra districts. Disconnect Power to Banjara/Jubilee Hills , Kukatpally , SR/V.Rao Nagar , Dilsukhnagar and see who will have the last laugh.
Seemandhra Govt bought inexperienced drivers to Hyderabad and made them run RTC buses . The result is Accidents on the streets of Hyderabad . Just now an Inexperienced Driver with Police escort has driven the bus on to an Auto Stand at J.Hills Check Post resulting in death of the Auto Driver . How cruel this Govt can be , its playing with the lives of TG'ites. Letz show no mercy , Just SMOKE them .
Sanitation work Hyd has come to stand still now . Garbage dumping yards all over HYD will not be cleared as HYD Municipality sanitation workers have decided to be part of "Sakala Janula Samme" . Sanitation employees have decided to clean all the Garbage that includes Seemandhra settlers only when Telangana anoouncement is made . My suggestion to municipality workers is collect all the Garbage in HYD and dump it front of those anti-Telangana houses. Also Power & Water supply shud be stopped to these houses. This is the best way of smoking them out from their hide-outs in peaceful manner.
My call to all Seemandhraites living in Hyderabad : I know each one of you HATE us from bottoms of your Heart . You never hid your HATE for us . In turn we always Loved you, welcomed you in our Land and treated you one amongst us . In this severe fight for separate state , we borne all the injuries but never attacked you . We took your Insults and stayed mute all these years . We welcomed your stay in Hyderabad and never challenged you. But tell me how long this LOVE will be a ONE WAY . In 60 yrs, you settlers never reciprocated to our love and affection . How long you expect me to show ONE WAY generosity. Seriously, I'am tired of showing my love to you settlers , knowing very well your HATE for us . Hereafter you have to come out and make your stand clear on Telangana . I cant allow myself to be taken for granted for ever. So kindly RESPOND .
You, Andhra settlers till now have enjoyed every time Policemen brutalised me. Watching those scenes on your TV screens , you laughed,screamed on top of your voices " We Want More". My dear Seemandhra Settlers , if you are a believer of KARMA then one day you too will be at receiving end . I'am talking of KARMA theory "what goes around , come around". I'am not wishing for any harm for you or your children , but beware , your bad KARMA will come around and HAUNT you.
This is life time opportunity for you to show your magnanimity . Now you make a Wise choice.

Pix: Nizam of HYD surrenders before Sardar Patel
September 17 Telangana / Hyderabad Vimochana Divas
September 17 తెలంగాణా విమోచన దినం . హైదరాబాద్ రాష్ట్ర విమోచన కోసం పోరాడి అమరులైన వరంగల్ పరకాల వీరులకు, మతం కన్నా స్వేచ గొప్పది అని పోరు బట పట్టి రజాకర్ల చేతులో హతుడైన జర్నలిస్ట్ శోయబుల్లః ఖాన్ కు మరీయు నిజం నిరంకుశ పాలనా కు వ్యతీరేకంగా పోరాడుతూ ప్రాణాలను అసువులు బాసిన పోరు బిడ్డలకు జాతీయ విప్లవ జోహార్లు . అమరవీరులారా మీ త్యాగమును మేము మరవము మీ పోరు బాట లోనే తెలంగాణా విముక్తి కొరకు పునరంకీతం అవుతాం .
We salute and remember Sardar Vallab Bhai Patel and Indian Army for freeing Telangana from the attrocities of Razakars and Nizam. Kasim Razvi the MIM founder was the chief of Razakars and he was fully supported by Nizam. Nizam wanted to merge Telangana with Pakistan.
We also salute Comrade Ravi Narayana Reddy from Nalgonda and Arya Samajists , Hindu Mahasabha activists who bravely fought mighty Nizam. Irony is that not a single Seemandhra leader came for our rescue when Razakars were killing Telugu speaking people. Razakars committed genocide against telugu speaking people with the patronage of Nizam. Seemandhra leaders came later to loot the wealth of Nizam and Hyd. Even looting us for last 50 years their hunger for money has not diminished . Beware SeemaAndhra plutocrats the Lions of Telangana has arisen, flee before you are hounded out . Now the time has come to give the clarion call of 'Quit Telangana' and kick out shameless greedy SeemaAndhra Plutocrats from Telangana .
