India that was Bharat


MS Dhoni won world cup: India
MS Dhoni shaved off his head after victory: Bharat


An Idea which is India! The Incredible India... you hate her, you like her but you cannot ignore her. Since the very beginning of Humanity, India is known for one of the wealthiest and developed civilization. Sadly we are not what we used to be!

I am not saying, India is bad or Bharat is good.... but can we re-implant that big big big heart of BHARAT in the visionary brain of INDIA???

Can we??

Today in a very banal discussion with one of my colleague, I told him that in Germany, there exist small refreshment huts in roadside jungle, if any commuter wants to eat, drink or take rest and drop the sum amount of money at the drop box as the payment of the total consumption. To our amusement there is no check point, camera, caretaker or security guard to stop you if you try to run away because no one does it.

He asked: Can we do it for India here?

Ah! You all know the answer!

Why? Why you answer is so much united! Cannot we Indians be honest? Do we not have courage to pay for what we spend?

Let me explain why it becomes the universally accepted and inevitable answer. It is not the development of one year or fifty years... not during the British raj... not even during Moguls, Tuglaq or Lodhi Era. This began way back during Vedic Age, before this we all were as civilized and disciplined as humanity can expect us to be. How? Good question...

During Vedic age Aryans took over the reign of Indian command. They developed the system of civilization as good as the communistic governance of CHINA? RUSSIA or France. A son of a Brahmin is declared as Brahmin since birth, a son of worrier is declared worrier since birth... no one remain worried about the quest of earning bread by honing excellence. Those who had a good job never changed their profession and those had bad jobs never allowed to change their profession. So elite never took pain to innovate his job and a poor never cared to innovate his part. Both of them felt happy with whatever they were doing and keep on doing... day and night, week and fortnight.... years and decades.... centuries and millennium...

Brahmins never innovated education,
Farmers never innovated Cultivation...
Kshatirya kept fighting with each others...
Vayshya expanded their trade out of boundaries....
Shudra becomes the football from one foot to other....

Greece came and ruined...
Gajanvi came and looted...
Lodhi, tuglak, Aibak, Khilji, Mogul... British, Pourtgal... French...
Till 1947AD everyone from back or front... murdered the very character of Indian

They killed our souls... slowly...
Macaulay broken us based upon our religions...
Vedic Hindus broken us based on 2500 castes...
 Post liberation... came short minded politicians.... bit by bit they raped our character... due which bastards like Dawood, Abu Salem, Afjal Guru... born...
We forgot that ours was the village.... where marriage of a daughter was not the load of her father but of the entire village!

We forgot that we never locked our doors!
We forgot that we never taken more than our apatite!
We forgot that our cattle used to have milk produce in their diets!
We forgot that our horse & carts used to be made up of gold and gems!

We forgot Ram Rajya.... we still remembered Ayodhya
We forgot Seeta Mata... we still remembered tirya charitra...

We remembered our epics but never implemented... we remembered we were rich we never acted like rich...

We snatch, we over store, we over consumer, we stock, we black mail....
We become INDIA.... We lost BHARAT!!!!

जाने क्या क्या

"ये अचानक बढ़ी कौतुहल का ग़ुबार भर है, कविता कह देना बड़ी बात होगी, पेश है आपके नज़रो-क़रम के लिए "
कुछ मीठा मीठा छूट गया, कुछ कड़वा कड़वा साथ रहा। 
उसके आने जाने तक का, जाने क्या क्या याद रहा।
फूल, किताबें, मंदिर ओटलें, वो गली गलीचे गुजर गये।
भीड़ भाड़ कि धक्का मुक्की, में ये शहर बड़ा आबाद रहा।
सायकल, गच्छी, सीठी, घंटी, छुप छुप के संवाद किये।
अब आँखों की अठखेली का, न वो हुनर रहा न उन्माद रहा।
कुछ मीठा मीठा छूट गया, कुछ कड़वा कड़वा साथ रहा। 
उसके आने जाने तक का, जाने क्या क्या याद रहा।

My World View

"My vision is that everyone irrespective of their history must be allowed to participate in making this world a better place"  - Jitendra Rajaram 
Economy is a political arrangement of power. It is not about money. Money is a tool to exercise the power one holds.    Politics is a continuous struggle of reshuffling the power arrangement among various power fringes. These fringes are class, caste, community, ethnicity, skin colour, gender, age, and family identities. Macroscopically, this struggle is homogeneous, everyone is fighting with everyone else. Microscopically however, one can observe patterns. The patter is a binary, a war between “Handful powerful elites” and “Million weak, poor and discarded bands of people”.

Whoever is ruling, has actually achieved a temporary state of equilibrium. This equilibrium is the sum of positive and negative powers like religion, wealth, societies, people unions, customs, cultures, and ethnicities etc. This equilibrium can be managed and sust…

The Cusp of Democracy & Autocracy

A country where earning Rs.18 a day tags you not poor, Election Commission spends Rs.73 per voter to conduct the general election  - Jitendra Rajaram
"Out of 123 democratic countries in the world, not a single country is 100% democratic. Not a single democracy conducts 100% impartial election. In India where 36% population lives in a $1 a day, the cost of election is more than $1 a vote. The irony doesn't end here! The political parties conesting in such elections have spent more $13 to woo every single elector in 2019 General Election of India. Owing the amount of money spent, should we call it a democracy or plutocracy?

Nic Cheeseman and Brian Klass wrote in the first page of their book “How to Rig an Election” with a statement “The greatest political paradox of our time is this: there are more elections than ever before, and yet the world is becoming less democratic”.


As Victor Hugo said, “Nothing is stronger than the idea whose time has come”, it is evident that time still…
