My resignation from the IAS was accepted in 2004 w.e.f. 14 January 2001

Some of my papers have been recovered in India from my father’s records after his death, including an attempt by the Indian government to pay me a few weeks of leave that I was entitled to.

Here’s the acceptance in 2004 (!) of my resignation from the IAS w.e.f. 14 January 2001.

Quick update regarding mass-scale censorship of my views by Big Tech and Government owned media


Shadow banning is real and has been happening to me for nearly two years now.

Telegram is the only honest platform I know of – never the slightest censorship.


First went Linkedin. This was sometime in late 2020. Disappeared, all of a sudden. I had over 6000 followers.

Then Twitter:   I had over 8k followers.

And Facebook (where I have over 7k followers) has kept choking me throughout. See this massive list of “punishments”Even today my account is being punished by FB – it is basically invisible to anyone. This has gone on for over a month, and applies to all my pages, including the campaign page for Bulleen.



This criminal gang not only slandered me but refused to give me space to refute its ENTIRELY false propaganda:

Update on my campaign in Bulleen constituency in Victoria

An email I sent out to the media a moment ago:

Dear all

Since September 2020, when I resigned in protest against Dan Andrews’s Police State, I have been fighting the terror and tyranny unleashed by governments across Australia in the name of protecting us from a pandemic.

I am now contesting the seat of Bulleen in the Victorian Parliament and would be happy to explain, to anyone who is interested, why I’m putting in so much effort – costing close to $40,000, something I simply can’t afford. But how can one put a price tag on liberty? If the opportunity cost (my resignation) is added up, I’ve spent well over a quarter of a million in fighting Australian tyranny.

Well over ten thousand Australians (many Victorians) have already been MASSACRED by Australia’s governments through lockdowns, while not more than 5,000 have been temporarily saved, on net, by these draconian policies. When the havoc and devastation created is added up, the harms of lockdowns exceed benefits by at least 68 times. These facts are self-evident, but I can personally explain to anyone who is interested.

I’m attaching my last flyer (out of four) which I sent for printing last night, for distribution in early November. My previous flyers and messages distributed across the constituency are available at:
