Leadership Ethics

"She is a bitch of her won kind, never cares law and order" said US President Richard Nixon to Indian PM Indira Gandhi on Bangladesh war. 

"US should not hold claim upon burial of Osama Ji's dead body, it should get Islamic cremation" Dig Vijay Singh on USA's thoughtful burial of Osama Bin Laden's dead body

"It is tiring to be the Goddess of 800 million Indians" said by Indira Gandhi in 1984 slightly before her assiantion in an interview to Pranay Gupte, than CNN editor

"My Muslim brothers do not have slightest right to raise objection upon the demoilation of Babari Masjid as their people have destructed thousands of temple since they invaded India"  Said by Lal Krishna Advani in his auto biography 'My Country My Life'


"I shall only say truth , however bitter it is and how so ever loss I would draw from it" said Mahatma Gandhi before Lord. Mountbatten over Kashmir Dispute

If you just have noticed the thin line above. This thin line is actually what I say 'line of ethics' which a diplomat or a leader should always keep in mind while dealing with his/her follower. Statements mentioned above the thin line are politically objected, thoughtful, intentional and deliberate. The sentence mentioned below the thin line is ethically thoughtful, objected, intentional but not at all deliberate.

For me, I feel it is essential to talk about leadership ethics to my budding leaders. I was reading an interview of chief of Hijbul Mujhiddeen, the Kashmir Extremist outfit from POK. There I got evaluate that the leader have many deep studded convictions about India (both good and bad) to which he just cannot listen or agree upon any contradicting tactic. 

I am concerned now for such stances in the future! I have many young friends who are so much influenced by Hindu extremists that they are now spoiling the pluralism of Indian society. I have seen my talented young brothers practicing racial discrimination based upon caste, culture, color of a person. A chinky, a madrasi, a gujjar, a gurkha or a uriya is so much important to them as if his/her education and work ethics are of no value while interacting with them. My worry is, how a young Indian who holds the citizenship of globalized pluralism gets such a detailed information about sub-castes and rural minorities? Naturally, this is a planned and systematic brain-washing of our talented young brothers and sisters. 

Systematic Brain Storming, Influencing by tempered knowledge and sparking rage of revenge has become the course curricula of leadership training in Indian leadership. 

It is inheritance of leadership which is damaging Indian Identity Worldwide

Major draw back of leadership inheritance 
This decade is the last phase of third generation leadership in post liberated India. A politically and economically stable country with five declared wars from Pakistan and China... hundred plus counter insurgency operations and ten plus peace keeping trooper operations. Indian leadership learned a lot from warfare, weaponry advancements, international strategic alliances and economic treaties.... but India should be declared failure in terms of developing pluralism, nurturing civic senses and improving upon human development index. A gross failure, which has kicked us a generation back from our western counterparts.  

The main reason is because, Indian leadership got transferred as a dynasty in spite of having well established democratic mechanism. In inheritance of leadership brought very thoughtful conviction of bringing newer technology to Indian barely made any cheering adoptions while dealing with the domestic affairs. This dynastic transfer of leadership wasn't natural but was in installments. First to become the poster boy of party, than to become a catalyses of the party, than take over the election management of the party and finally take seat on the reign of ministry. With utter cautious supervision of senior leaderships which steadily mounted the new leader in old horse... 

Practice Totalitarian Approach 
While dealing with leadership responsibility, I recommended my dear young blood leaders that we should practice holistic approach while taking up any leadership. Part ownership of a task leads to unpleasant and semi acceptable results. It is quite often, we fail to comply with the stander to time and global competition. 

Leadership is all about being bold risk taker... and this is why I strongly manifest that if you are taking risk thank why to ride upon old horse? Why not to think afresh and establish our own identity? This way we will be able to implement more time oriented, globally compatible leaderships. Perhaps this is the only way we will be able to dump terrorism, extremism and regional opportunism to run on fast track development road of this nation!

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…
