The colourful Onam festival comes on the 6th. Laughter and mirth rule the country especially in Kerala - the land of sylvan settings. Lord Guruvayurappan temple is the heaven on the earth. We wish well our brothren in kerala and wish them a happy festival.
Come September, it is the ringing bell for festivities every where. The college folks call this month Festember! Navarathiri from 25th culminates to declare victory of Virtue over Evil. To translate it in to Realities, People have entrusted The Bharathiya Janata Party under the dynamic leadership of Shri Narendra Modiji, who wants a participatory democracy in rebuilding up the nation to its pristine beauty. Any one with a novel idea is welcome to give a concrete proposal.
Our Prime minister has called for innovative alternate body for the present planning commission. The planning commission is so massive as of an elephant. Hence its movement is slow. If we expect a body to move quickly we must devise one like a panther, agile and active and intelligent. More over it should incite, involve and encourage every one in nation building yagna.
Bharath culture is village culture. Hence we have to learn as to how the village sabhas are functioning for ages together with out government intervention. This body goes by the name MAHIMAI. Village welfare, festival activities are regulated by the oor Mahimai. None is exempt in its ambit of influence. Therefore the plan body will be THE MAHIMAI of every village. Of course there are more than one mahimais in a village if it is populated by different communities held together. Then it will be a joint mahimais of the village. Every villager is part and parcel of the organization with a right to question the executives of the project. If a project affects a few villages then all the mahimais will be the executive body. The Role of the government is minimal. It provides technical support. It is worth while to remember the old ayacutdars' system of irrigation- projects management. Suppose there is a breach in a tank called kanmoi, a tom tom will be given. All beneficiaries of that water body should rush to attend to the repair work, failing which they will be penalized. Such a voluntary mass participation should be in planning and execution of plans. All labour force required for the project execution will be locally recruited if available. Highly technical skilled men force will be from open market.
By asking all to contribute their ideas for nation building The Prime Minister has created a revolution in thinking positively.
Cleaning Auegian stable
The task in hand is so enormous, complicated, beset with obstacles. Yet The Prime minister aware well of these hurdles has embarked on a major shake up.
Linking of National Rivers
This is an urgent task which should be no longer delayed.
Every village sabha will finalise its development plan and tie up with the next level district coordinated by the distrct collectors and finally amalgamated at the state and the Central National level - all fused in to one whole.
A few ordinances have to be issued
The first ordinance will ban all bore well operations, for irrigation puposes lower down than 10 feet of the subsoil water table of the region. All other borewells will be sealed or dummied. Alternate irrigation on the ground flow level on gravitational method will be provided.
Another ordinance to ban the sales of genetically modified seeds, production, stock and sale. All available stuff will be destroyed by fire. Possession of such seads is a non bailable offence.
The effluvia and the effluents from industries should be thouroughly treated to zero gravity and then only allowed to sink in to the soil. All factories violating the law will be closed down - the cost of recycling them will be recovered from the factories themselves.
All forests, major mines to be nationalized. The present system of permit to be scrapped forth with. Government agencies will mine the minerals and keep them in their campus for allotment. No private vehicles shall go to the sites. Only vehicles of the government will carry the mineral to the depots.
The quality of the air we breathe in has to be monitored in cities. Air pollution, smoke, dust and e wastes have sizably polluted the ambience of the air we breathe. Of the five elements water and earth have come to be sold for profit. God forbid the sale of air.
We request the PMO's office to publicise the summary of proposals received for further inputs and refinements on a weekly basis.
We wish our popular Prime Minister Narendra Modi god speed in his endeavours to rebuild the Nation.
