I support the Ambedkar-Periyar study circle, and encourage them to ACTUALLY understand Ambedkar

I finally found time to review the note from APSC that led IITM to derecognise them. That such derecognition is BEYOND SHAMEFUL goes without further comment. 

My interest in this blog post is to review the note and provide further thought. Download the note here

Text conversion and analysis, below, followed by further comments (Download Word version here).

Ambedkar-Periyar study circle

IIT Madras

(An initiative by IITM students)

Contemporary relevance of Dr. Ambedkar

Speaker: Dr. R. Vivekananda Gopal, Diravidian University

Venue: HSB 352; Date: 14-04-15; Time: 5.00 p.m

“CASTE” is a word which has no significance for most of the urban elites in current times. The statement, “I don't think caste and caste oppression exist today” is popular among academic fraternity. Contrary to this, according to a recent survey, 21% upper caste population occupy the 75% of power and influential positions in government and private sectors in UP. Similar scenario exists in other states and even in central government organizations. On the other hand, all lower grade and manual jobs are exclusively reserved (i.e 100% reservation) for Dalits permanently! Though several ‘reformers’ have fought and are fighting against this rotten stinkard caste system, a scientific and scholarly approach towards caste was initially taken, and its sole authority of brahmanical hegemony was rigorously exposed by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.

[Sanjeev: the idea of reservation is antithetical to a country with citizens who are equal in all rights and obligations under the law. The Sone Ki Chidiya agenda lays out a clear strategy to eliminate reservations upon ensuring equality of opportunity for all]

Caste in contemporary times has become a political tool for the ruling class to severe its social oppression over Dalits and also for economically exploiting the working classes. The Modi government, while carrying forward its Hindutva agenda, it is simultaneously assisting the multinational corporates to loot mother India. [Sanjeev:  I fully agree that Modi government is a crony capitalist, i.e. socialist government] While implementing pro-corporate moves like Land Acquisition Bill, Insurance Bill, Labour laws [Sanjeev: I’m afraid, we need very radical reforms of labour laws, which are creating massive unemployment and loss of productivity], corporate favor budget, 100% FDI in PSUs [Sanjeev: I wish! FDI is not accepted by the Modi government, and second, it is a shame that we still have PSUs] etc and paving way for the corporate to loot the livelihood of the children of India, it is communally polarising the common people by the ban on cow slaughtering, gar vapsi program and promoting Vedas etc.. In the name of ‘Swadesi’ they are selling mother India and dividing her children in the name of communalism. As part of this, now they are revisionising Ambedkar and projecting him as an icon for their vote politics. Ambedkar proposed to annihilate the caste by destroying Hinduism. He says, “You must destroy the Religion of the Shrutis and the Smritis. Nothing else will avail”. “Hinduism is a veritable chamber of horrors and it must die for caste to vanish”. But in the contemporary days, when caste is supporting the economic exploitation [Sanjeev: the solution is to implement Sone Ki Chidiya agenda, with equal opportunity. As far as Hinduism is concerned, my personal view is that it should be treated as a historical curiosity], it can only be annihilated by taking forward struggle against caste simultaneously with the struggle against recolonization.

FURTHER COMMENT

The point that this society has entirely missed is that Ambedkar was, above all, an economist; largely classical liberal. He knew the value of markets. He had a good understanding of liberty.

Accordingly, the APSC is well advised to promote the SKC agenda, rather than harp on reservations and divisive language of this sort.

In my mind, Ambedkar was a BRAHMIN, even as many "brahmins" are not fit to be spat on.

My email to a senior Congress leader. Can the Congress revert to the glorious days of Gokhale?

For the record:

===

Good things must be appreciated. I commend your party's position on fighting the beef ban. http://www.sabhlokcity.com/2015/05/a-big-breakthrough-for-the-congress-party-fighting-against-the-beef-eating-ban-in-maharashtra/
 
If you can help ensure that your party follows world-best principles of governance and liberty (as detailed in the SKC agenda), and punish the MANY severely corrupt people who are given shelter by the party, I'd even be willing to join the party. 
 
Till then, I will continue to fight for India's future through alternative ways, in my limited capacity. I am with truth and liberty, for India deserves the best. 
 
Gopal Krishna Gokhale was a key leader of the Indian National Congress in its early days (1890s-1910s). He was an outstanding economist and promoter of liberty. If the party can revert to the ideology of liberty that people like him stood for, I can support the party. 
 
Of course, that would also mean allowing talented people to rise to the very top – as they used to in the early days of the Indian National Congress. People like Rahul Gandhi can't be allowed to lead any liberal party.

Disconnecting comprehensively from K N Govindacharya’s medievalist mix of socialism and religious fanaticism

For some time I was informed that Govindacharya had a some kind of a broadly liberal perspective.

This, despite a very strong socialist structure of his ideas. 

I engaged through Surendra Bisht with his group and even sent him the SKC Agenda.

Absolutely no response from his end. 

However, things came to a head when Govindacharya started a Goraksha Andolan-गोरक्षा आंदोलन Facebook page and Surendra invited me to the page. Surendra also sent me a couple of emails on this topic. I pointed out that this is TOTALLY INCONSISTENT with Hinduism. Beef eating was a part of Hindu diet for thousands of years. It is well documented in Arthashastra, apart from 100s of archaeological proofs. Even today Hindus eat buffalo (and drink its raw blood) in some parts of India/ Nepal – after thousands of years of Buddhist/Jain influence which led to the Hindus reducing their reliance on beef.

And from any sensible policy perspective this is a terrible idea. It is SURE way to make the cow a zoo animal, by making it uneconomic. Also, it forces older cows to eat on garbage (being disowned by poor farmers) causing the animal immense physical injury and pain. This is the WORST possible idea – to ban cow slaughter blindly.

Finally, after Surendra insisted that this is the kind of thing he wishes to pursue, I've disconnected COMPREHENSIVELY from this group. These are nothing but BJP in a different guise. And misguided, as well. Surendra is illiberal and anti-Indian. I will have no truck with these people.

The final interaction recorded below.

These are NOT the leaders India needs to make it a great country. I request them to change false beliefs and antediluvian misconceptions.

EXTREME DECEPTION by “honest” Arvind Kejriwal. Blamed BJP but himself sought Congress MLAs.

I thought I'd pursue the AK lies a bit further. 

In November 2013 he said that he would never align with Congress or BJP under any circumstances.

The reason? Because Congress and BJP are corrupt. Which is true – they are miserably corrupt. So far, so good.

Then, in July 2014 he launched a direct attack not only on BJP but on the Lt. Governor of Delhi:

Kejriwal launches scathing attack on Lt Guv Jung, says inviting BJP will encourage ‘horse trading’

​Arvind Kejriwal accuses BJP of horse-trading, releases an audio clip targeting Modi

​He bandied about large figures:

He went on TV and attacked everyone around him:

adf

The BPP launched a counter-offensive:

BJP Asks Arvind Kejriwal to Pay Rs 1 Crore as Damages for 'Defamation'

Delhi BJP legislator sends legal notice to Arvind Kejriwal

But it is now clear that all the while AK WAS HIMSELF RUNNING AFTER CONGRESS.

From speculation about corruption to 99 per cent proof of corruption: Modi’s suit was a gift.

The crony capitalist has finally emerged.

"now the suspense over the much hyped suit has ended as a diamond merchant Ramesh Virani has revealed that he gifted the suit to Modi. Virani gifted the suit to Modi during his son’s marriage. Virani shares cordial relationship with Modi and his family. Mr Virani also denied the estimated worth of the suit, saying that it is being over-hyped." [Source]

The businessman is refusing to divulge the cost. I stick to the 5-10 lakh estimate. 

1) when was the marriage? 

2) did Modi declare the gift immediately? He broke the code of conduct for ministers. 

3) why did he wear the personal garment? 

4) how many favours has he given to this merchant? Or his government given favours?

This is rock solid proof of corruption.

There MAY be 1 per cent chance that this is not proof of corruption. But the circumstantial evidence is now extremely conclusive.

IF MODI DECLARED THIS SUIT AFTER THE REPUBLIC DAY INCIDENT (I.E THE MARRIAGE WAS WELL BEFORE THE REPUBLIC DAY) THIS IS 100 PER CENT PROOF OF CORRUPTION.

ADDENDUM
5) How many other such 'suits' or gifts has Modi accepted from other businessmen?

6) How many gifts has Modi not declared? 

7) How many favours to BJP that have not been declared?

ADDENDUM

A more detailed report.

The marriage date was 26 January, but that doesn't matter. The date the suit was gifted was 11-13 January 2015.

ALL other issues raised remain valid. I see no reason to change my mind that this is a clear case of corruption.

PM Modi's suit fetches Rs 1.25 cr: But will charity wash away the vanity?

ADDENDUM

The suit got auctioned for Rs.4.31 crores. My comment on FB:

The corrupt shame of accepting this from a businessman, and actually wearing it, will not wash away. This auction is another way to come closer to Modi, and only crony capitalists will benefit from this. NO ONE GIVES THIS KIND OF MONEY FOR NOTHING.

ADDENDUM

Racket within a racket: Crooks and tax evaders seem to have paid for the Modi suit.

AAP’s Rs.2 crore donation from non-existent companies – and no attempt to identify the donors. This stinks.

Rakesh Agarwal posted this on his FB page. He has been instrumental in unearthing this scam:

"By the way, I unearthed this scam. Neil gave me one company's name and asked if we can find details. Being a simpleton, he was clueless. Took me 2-3 hours to download and read documents from ROC website and infer that these are shell companies. Emailed it to Neil and he took it from there in respect of the other companies."

Comments 2

Well done, Rakesh.

This is an open and shut matter.

1) There were FOUR donations of Rs.50 lakhs made on 5 April 201 (click for larger image)

The spreadsheet with other details of the companies is attached here.

2) Ajay Upadhyaya is a director in three of these four companies.

3) The companies have fake addresses, etc.

The problem is that AAP never bothered to connect with the donors. This is not a small amount that can slip through the cracks. This is big bucks. NO party with any claims of integrity can tolerate such large amounts being donated anonymously.

This stinks.

AAP is implicated. And no explanation is forthcoming.

AVAM'S ALLEGATION

"All money that comes from cheques is not necessarily clean. We wanted to show the modus operandi of AAP that cash is given to such companies and in return cheques are issued. The business of these companies is to turn black into white," AVAM member Karan Singh said at a press conference. [Source]

In a press conference, AAP Volunteers Action Manch members said AAP's claim about the impossibility of conducting hawala transaction through cheque is untrue. They tried to prove this by producing two cheques of Rs 50 lakh each from the two firms which had donated the same sum to AAP — Goldmine Buildcon and Skyline Metal and Alloys. "We did this to prove that hawala transactions can be conducted through cheques," Amit Kumar of AVAM said. [Source]

Jaitley called the Rs 2 crore donation through cheques of Rs 50 lakh each by four companies to AAP a clear case of "round-tripping of black money".  [Source]

"Now we know the truth. Look at their shamelessness," he said. "The party's defence that they did not ask for donations is untenable." Modi said the money was transferred to the AAP in the "dead of night". "Our country can forgive mistakes, but not fraudsters," the prime minister said. "Those who roamed around claiming to have Swiss account numbers in their pockets have no idea whose money is lying in their own accounts," Modi said.
