Year of Mauka

Citizen takes review of the year...

This was the year with had a world cup in cricket. And there was an ad campaign by name Mauka. Being truly Indian i don't care about other sports or Olympics so for us this WAS  the year. And if 1/5th population cares for cricket  so let it be. Let  the others recognise same  sport beyond reasons. There was a Mauka  and we lost.
Here for country we have a functional executive  and well meaning one for second  time in  the history of independent India. But there are thought processes which threaten this India story.
This was the year we had opportunity and opportunity we still exist till be believe. so let's keep Mauka on imagination for the next year and help India reach its real place in scheme of nations as we had pledged in school.
On films side it was disaster year with only few films like piku ,queen, katyar connecting chords  and strikes  ad controversies were in focus..
Cricket we have change of guards and there is promise. World t20 will be defining
In the Politics its the last chance for India to decide if it wants to progress or  digress as  it did for last 60 years
Maharashtra also has to come out of regional politics and for that regional satraps should say goodbye...
Pune needs better leaders to hang on to Mauka but then who cares?
World suffered with terrorism again just like India did for last decade and more. ISIS continues to kill and influence. At least all countries address global warming as an issue. China story needs revisiting and world needs open economy beyond visa regimes. Putin emerged taller.

नगर रस्ता बीआरटी:सदोष अर्धवट स्थितीत सुरु करण्यापूर्वीच सर्व त्रुटी दूर करण्याचे ,अत्यावश्यक ट्रान्स्फर terminal सह पादचारी व प्रवासी सुरक्षिततेच्या सर्व प्रभावी व्यवस्थेचे , एक महिना मोफत प्रवासाचे व तज्ञांच्या प्रवासी प्रतिनिधिसह safety ऑडीट व पूर्तता पाहणीचे; महापालिका,पीएमपी व प्रादेशिक परिवहन प्राधिकरण यांना आदेश द्यावेत !

Hon Chief Minister,Hon Transport Minister,
Govt of Maharashtra, Mumbai

An efficient,affordable,safe & reliable BRT system can be a emergency effective remedy for the grave state of pollution and civic problems due to draconian increase in private vehicle in metropolitan Pune & PCMC.
But the precedence is much more than damaging this proven concept BRT, in Pune.
As such we earnestly request to look into personally and issue suitable orders to PMC,& RTA (failed to fulfill its cast upon duties of traffic transport in Pune) to नगर रस्ता बीआरटी:सदोष अर्धवट स्थितीत  सुरु करण्यापूर्वीच सर्व त्रुटी दूर करण्याचे ,अत्यावश्यक ट्रान्स्फर terminal सह पादचारी प्रवासी सुरक्षिततेच्या  सर्व प्रभावी व्यवस्थेचे , एक महिना मोफत प्रवासाचे तज्ञांच्या प्रवासी प्रतिनिधिसह safety ऑडीट पूर्तता पाहणीचे; महापालिका,पीएमपी प्रादेशिक परिवहन प्राधिकरण यांना आदेश द्यावेत !
Undue pressure is being created to launch hastily incomplete and faulty BRT on Nagar Rd, which is long pending due to PMC & RTAs failures.

A representation in Marathi is attached.
Awaiting much needed prompt positive response in larger public interest.
Thanks & Regards,

HIKE PPF INTEREST WITH EPF TO 8.75%

Hon. Pranabda, President of India
Hon.Narendraji Modi,PM,
Hon.Arun Jeitly,FM

NEVER EVER REDUCE PPF INTEREST; PAY MINIMUM 1% MORE THAN PF/EPF, CERTAINLY NOT LESS  ON PPF.

ANY CONCERN FOR COMMON MAN ?SALARY HIKE  7TH
PAY COMMISSION/
8.75%PF INTEREST-DA HIKE/ TO BUREAUCRATS

"GOVT PLAYS BAD GUY,PAYS BABUS MORE & MORE;IGNORES COMMON MAN "

THE INFLATION HAS GONE THROUGH ROOFS.ITS INCREASINGLY BECOMING
IMPOSSIBLE FOR MIDDLE CLASS,LOWER MIDDLE CLASS & POOR/BPL CITIZENS FOR
BOTH ENDS TO MEET & survive

ON THIS BACKDROP: THE RACE IS GOING ON AMONGST ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES
AND BUREAUCRATS TO GRAB TO THEIR ADVANTAGE MAXIMUM WHAT THEY CAN.THEY
ARE IN POWER;THEY ARE IN AUTHORITY;THEY ARE ORGANISED; THEY ARE IN A
POSITION TO INFLUENCE POLICY; THEY CAN INFLUENCE DECISIONS.THEY ARE
DOING IT TO THEIR SOLE ADVANTAGE,IGNORING THE BASIC RIGHT TO LIVE/
RIGHT TO SURVIVE OF ALMOST MORE THAN HALF OF THE COUNTRY'S POPULATION.

Bureaucrats GET THEIR SALARIES-PERKS HIKED MANIFOLD FOR NO
JUSTIFICATION/PERFORMANCE/NECESSITY.MLA-MLC ALREADY LINED UP IN THE
RACE . NO WONDER THE TREND PERCOLATES DOWN THE LINE TO
CORPORATORS,CITY COUNCELLORS.TALUKA,GRAM PANCHAYATS.

THE PAY COMMISSIONS MANNED & INFLUENCED BY BUREAUCRATS HAS PROVED TO
BE GREAT BURDEN ON THE NATION.

6TH & 7thPAY ADDED LAKHS OF CRORES BURDEN ON THE EXCHEQUER.

AGAIN THERE IS DA HIKE;AS IF INFLATION ONLY HURTS BABUS.; IN FACT THEY
ARE THE MAJOR CAUSE OF INFLATION ALONG WITH POLITICIANS.

PF INTEREST RATE IS HIKED TO 8.75%;

PPF(PUBLIC PROVIDENT FUND) IS STARTED FOR CITIZENS AND WORKS FOR THE SAME OBJECTIVE AS THOSE OF PF/EPF ;
THEN WHY PPF INTEREST RATE IS SET TO REDUCE, TARGETTING TO LOWER THAN PF/EPF.

AND ALSO PPF INTEREST HIKE WILL FURTHER ENCOURAGE SAVINGS, IN TURN
LESS MONEY IN CIRCULATION,CONSEQUENTIALLY MAY HELP CHECK INFLATION.

WHY PPF IGNORED ?

ANSWER IS SIMPLE: CITIZENS AT LARGE HAVE NO SAY IN POLICY/DECISION,
WHERE AS PF/EPF INTEREST HIKE WILL BENEFIT ONLY ORGANISED
EMPLOYEES:PEON TO CHIEF/CABINET SECRETARY.

COMMON MAN IS REMEMBERED ONLY FOR ELECTIONS/ MANIFESTOS  FOR MERELY FLOATING POPULAR SCHEMES-PROVIDING HUGE FUNDS  AND THEN CONVENIENTLY / INTENTIONALLY COMMON MAN FORGOTTEN .

FORMER PRIME MINISTER AND PLANNING COMMISSION DY CHAIRMAN HAVE MADE PUBLIC STATEMENTS THAT ONLY 15% TO
10% OF THE PLAN-SCHEME FUNDS REACHES TO ACTUAL-GENUINE BENEFICIARIES.

FOR THE PEOPLE,BY THE PEOPLE OF THE PEOPLE IS ONLY IN THE CONSTITUTION BOOK ;
IN REALITY IT IS FOR-BY-OF LEADRES & BUREAUCRACY AND WHOEVER
JOINS IN THEIR CONSPIRACY AGAINST COMMON CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT NATION: INDIA.
