Should Government make it compulsory for IIT students to serve nation for minimum 2 years?

 

There are two kind of persons who leave India for work:

  1. Those who are the best and want more and more money. They mostly want to go to USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. Once settled, they do not want to come back. They hardly sent money to India for family as they have so many expenses there.
  2. Those who fail to find decent job and decided to go out of nation for earning living. These people normally find jobs in Asian and African Countries. The highest density of such peoples is found in middle east. They always dream to go back to India and start some business or to find a decent job back in India. They send most of their earnings back to India pumping billions of dollars of foreign money to home country.

The very purpose of creating IIT’s were to produce excellent talent to serve the nation and not to throw away the Taxpayers money spent on IITians. The fees IITians pay is a fraction of expenditure on them by Government. Everyone has right to have good job decent life but our first duty is towards our Nation. If we are able to secure good job here, we must not run behind Dollars. India need talented people. Our country will become poorer if we continue this brain drain. I know here we have lot of problems. But running away with problem is not bravery. Facing them is bravery.

30% Indians are living below the poverty line. Only cutting edge technology, Industrialization and modernization of agriculture can uplift them. For all that we need talented people to stay here and work for Nation. So students of all premium colleges should dedicate 2 years in service of motherland from where they received everything before they start thinking about themselves.

Bleeding Hearts

 

Muslims are biggest minority in India and ever since they settled in India, they enriched Indian heritage and culture.Considering the ratio of population, in many areas Indian minorities contributed more in development of Nation than Majority.

Indian Muslims are Unique in many ways. One reason for this might be long association of Muslims with Indian subcontinent. Muslims arrived in Kerala in 8th century AD. They came through sea route from Arabian Peninsula. Most important impact of Muslims can be seen during Mughal period and later in struggle for independence. Muslims are living in India from more than 700 years. Before 1500AD Muslims came to India for various reasons such as trade, learning, preaching Islam and looting and robbing Indian wealth. They were foreigners like British who returned back after finishing their mission. It was only during Mughals, that Muslims made India their home country and settled permanently here. They were not the robbers who took Indian wealth outside the country. But they gave India a rich heritage to cherish. Redford, Taj Mahal, Humayun’s tomb, Jodha Bai’s Palace Fatehpur Sikri , Kutub Minar are few such examples made by Muslim rulers. Akber-The most successful Mughal emperor united the whole nation and expanded its border. Many brave and intellectual Hindus were part of his Court. He was a secular King who treated everyone with fairness and equality irrespective of his religion, caste or color.

It requires a whole book to write about Muslims contribution in struggle for independence. But Alas! After 60 years of independence, Muslims need a certificate of Patriotism from those organisations who never took part in the struggle of independence. We are supposed to say certain slogan to prove we are Indian!

India is a Great Country! It’s rich culture, freedom of expression and history makes it even Greater. I am a proud Indian and I love my country. I respect Constitution of India and I am a law-abiding citizen. My heart bleeds when somebody calls someone a traitor just because of his/her name. My heart bleeds when someone tells me or to someone else to go to Pakistan because we do not agree with their hard-line communal ideology. My heart bleeds when people’s divide us into we and them!

Blind Marriages

 

There are many broken marriages because of the physical or mental incompatibility. People marry without knowing each other. They take the oath of living together forever as soul mate and in very first night they come to know this relation will not last any longer because of incompatibility! Still you tried to patch up things but within a year or so you feel like enough is enough. You can’t spoil your whole life for your oath. You deserve a better life and with a heavy heart you broke up and move on. In Indian sub-continent, this is a tremendous problem. We can call such unions as blind marriage where boy and girl didn’t see and talk to each other until they get married. Families of bride and groom make all the arrangements and they feel quite proud about it and believe it is morally correct. We can minimize such incidents of illogical practice if we let boy and girl to meet and understand each other completely before marriage. Let them spent some time together before they marry each other.

We do see some successful blind marriages, but in most of the cases such marriages succeed only because the wife does all the sacrifices to save her marriage. Her parents always tell her that if she disobeys her husband she is wrong, and there is no space in their home for her if she came back after fighting with her husband. Can there be anything more ridicules’ than this? Society preaches such behaviour as morality! Time had come when we should raise our voice against such stupidity so-called morals. I do not understand logic of it in a society which allows co-education and stranger boys and girls can talk. But when it comes to marriage it becomes somewhat objectionable if bride and groom want to see or talk to each other before marriage. In small cities and villages you can still find such practice.

Sustainability in Everything

Scientist and Futurist are finding ways to terraform Mars for future use in case earth became inhabitable. But if we implement sustainability in all walks of life, we will never need another planet. Our earth is sufficient for the need of everyone. However, it is not sufficient for the greed of everyone.

Form last few centuries world is under capitalist power. Their main goal was to increase production by exploiting all natural resources. They needed huge supply of energy. Coal and Petroleum was the solution. Irrespective of its effect on ecosystem, human keep on using fossil fuels like coal and petroleum to bring about industrial revolution. Later they realize that something is wrong, air is getting polluted causing health hazards, acid rain and global warming. Ozone layer started depleting. But still no one stopped production, no one switch to renewable source of Energy. Even today, fossil fuels are the main source of energy. In many densely populated industrial cities, effect of pollution is visible. Respiratory diseases are increasing. In winters there is a thick fog causing difficulty in breathing.

Slowly we are shifting towards green energy and green building. But this is not enough. We need to be more serious about it. First we need to terraform earth rather than planning for mars. We need to find more efficient ways to use and produce energy. We have to shift completely to renewable source of energy like solar, wind and hydro. Trees are not enough; as they only exhale oxygen in day time. We need artificial plants converting CO2 into Oxygen 24 x 7. We have to promote culture of roof gardening and city plantation. Arrange water for existing plants. There should be separate plants which can be used for furniture. Or we must start using alternate material for furniture, doors and windows. Government must make strict rules for stopping cutting of jungles. If you are cutting a tree, you have to sow two saplings. Barren and hard lands to be used for making homes and fertilize lands to be reserved for only farming and plantation. Villages to be modernize to produce enough food for all.

Sustainability is very important concept. If we need sustainable future, we have to implement sustainability everywhere. Sustainability in society, Sustainability in work, Sustainability in energy use, sustainability in environment conservation etc.

Even your small contribution can make a big difference. Try to adopt below habits:

  1. Reuse and recycle everything that you can. Do not mix different kind of waste. Keep paper waste separately and give it to recycle.
  2. Conserve energy. Do not let AC and lights and fans turn on when you go out for long time.
  3. Do not waste water.
  4. Use both side of paper for unofficial work. Do not print until deem necessary.
  5. Use renewable energy. Buy a solar panel and install at your roof.
  6. Switch to Electric cars. They are quitter and trendy. More importantly do not cause pollution.
  7. Harvest Rain water.
  8. Use LED bulbs and energy-efficient equipment. Though they may be expensive initially, but within a year you will reach to break even.
  9. Do not put frozen items directly in microwave for heating. Plan in advance. Leave frozen items out for some time and then heat it. Similarly, do not keep hot items immediately in refrigerator.
  10. Do not install AC in front of a door. In that case all cool air will go out when you will open the door.
  11. Plant trees around your house and reduce heat entering inside building.
  12. Insulate your overhead water tank to avoid water over heating in summer and too cold in winter.
  13. Do not leave geyser (Electric hot water heater) on in night.
  14. In restaurant, do not order excessive food. Eating less is better than wasting food. Even if you order extra food, ask waiter to pack the remaining food. Even if you don’t want to consume it, give it to some poor road side beggar.
  15. Store less food unless required. If you have nearby supermarket, then try buying fresh food. Less food in fridge means less power consumption. Some fruit and vegetable not require to be preserving in refrigerator like onion, potatoes and bananas. Learn about what need to store in refrigerator and what not!
  16. Switch back to outdoor games, books and chatting to real people’s face to face rather than computer games and chatting to unknown persons on net.
  17. Avoid dark color paints and wall papers inside home. While buying or making home take care of proper natural ventilation and sunlight.
  18. Use walking or bicycle for small distance.
  19. While giving charity, make sure to donate one portion to NGO working for environmental cause.
  20. Share your innovative ideas to world. May be it change someone’s life. For example below is a very simple innovative product available on Amazon. This plate is made up of aluminium and increase conduction rate of heat transfer by increasing surface area. You can buy it at affordable rate by clicking this link. 

Rafale Deal : The saga of Mr. Modi love with Reliance

 

Executive Summery: Purchase price per Rafale Fighter Aircraft:

India (Under BJP) Rafale = .216 Billion Euro for fully built Rafales off the shelf  (Total 36)

Qatar =0.3 Billion Euro Rafale with MBDA Missile and training to 36 pilot and 100 technician (Total 24)

Egypt = 0.2166 Billion Euro Rafale  (total 24)

India (Under UPA) = 0.128 Billion Euro With technology transfer. (Total 126 out of which 18 off the shelf and 108 being assembled in India by HAL in India.

Detail about Rafale Deal :

One fine day in September 2016, India signed an inter-governmental agreement with France, known as “Rafale deal”, in which India bought 36 off-the-shelf Dassault Rafale twin-engine fighters for a price estimated to be Rs. 58,000 crore or 7.8 billion Euros (9.6 US Dollars).

The Rafale was chosen in 2012 over rival offers from the United States, Europe and Russia. The step was needed to upgrade India’s ageing fleet. The original plan was that India would buy 18 off-the-shelf jets from France’s Dassault Aviation, with 108 others being assembled in India by the state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited or HAL in Bengaluru.

The Modi-led BJP government, however, rowed back from the commitment of the last UPA government to buy 126 Rafales, saying the twin-engined planes would be too expensive and the deal fell through after nearly decade-long negotiations between India and France. There were a lot of hiccups over costs of the aircraft. However, faced with the dipping number of fighters and a pressing need to upgrade the Indian Air Force, Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervened and decided to buy 36 “ready-to-fly” fighters instead of trying to acquire technology from Dassault and make it in India.

The champion of make in India himself overruled the possibility of making aircraft in India which would have created lots of employment and technical development. A big loss to HAL-an Indian state-owned aerospace and defence company based in Bangalore, Karnataka

The Indian Air Force requires 42-44 Squadrons of fighters to deal with Western and Northern borders. It has only about 34 Squadrons of fighters. And, it will have to retire about 14 squadrons of Mi-G-21 and MiG-27 fighters by 2022. There are 16-18 planes in one squadron.

We need more than 160 fighter plane by 2022 and our government is purchasing just 36!
Earlier, speaking to Press Trust of India, Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said that India is unlikely to increase the number of Rafale fighters. The defence minister said that French-made jets were “way too expensive.”

See the difference here: 126 Rafales in 20 Billion USD. Now India is buying 36 Rafale in approx. 9.6 Billion USD. So the UPA was buying one Rafale fighter plane at 158.7 million USD, whereas BJP is buying at 266.6 million USD. Around Hundred million more expensive each aircraft. Which means BJP Government is paying 3.6 Billion USD more for the same Rafale twin-engine fighters plane for 36 plane. If I convert it into rupees it will be 231 Billion rupees Scam.

Government has no explanation for this huge price increase in purchase of same Fighter plane within a short span of time. Here is another angle. Qatar Purchased Same Fighter planes from France.

France and Qatar signed a 6.3 billion euro ($7.02 billion) deal for the sale of 24 Rafale fighter jets. Read full story below:

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-qatar-rafale/france-qatar-sign-rafale-deal-hollande-hails-gulf-ties-idUSKBN0NP0OE20150504

So, the per plane cost which Qatar is paying is 292.5 million USD. But Qatar make a package deal which includes MBDA missiles, and the training of 36 Qatari pilots and 100 technicians by the French military.

So in (7.02 – (266.6 X 24) ) = 7.02- 6.4 = 620 million. In 620 million USD they purchased not only MBDA missiles but also training for 36 pilot and 100 technicians.

If we know the price of MBDA missiles we can figure out whether India or Qatar close the better deal.

French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian sign a €5.2 billion (6.24 Billion USD) contract for the sale of 24 Rafale fighter jets to Egypt, a move that will finalize the first foreign order of the French-built warplanes. Purchase price of Egypt is same as that of Indian purchase price of Rafale. But earlier under UPA govt. India reached to much better deal. But as always our PM has a habit of quick decision making (in favor of Big Business man) without discussing with experts and opposition.

The saga of Mr. Modi (Prime Minister of India) love with Big businesses like Reliance

Now, as you might understand the story, here is the love story of Reliance and PM which is going on from long time even before he became PM of India.

When Reliance launched JIO network, our PM became brand ambassador of Reliance and advertise for it. There are many more such incidents when Mr. Modi openly favors Reliance. But this one is not only a dent on economy but also on our border security. Let me explain how Mr. Modi helped Mr. Ambani s/o Mr. Dhirubhai Ambani indirectly in a big way.

Go to Reliance website: http://www.relianceadagroup.com/ada/index.html

You will find below news:

Highlights

Dassault – Reliance Aerospace Manufacturing Facility In Mihan, Nagpur Inaugurated.

Below is the excript of press release during inauguration in Oct.27, 2017:

The Dassault-Reliance manufacturing facility Dhirubhai Ambani Aerospace Park is located in the Mihan SEZ adjoining Nagpur International Airport. Under Joint Venture company, DRAL (51% Reliance Aerostructure and 49% Dassault Aviation) the facility will manufacture several components of the offset obligation connected to the purchase of 36 Rafale Fighters from France, signed between the two Governments in September 2016. DRAL will manufacture components for the Legacy Falcon 2000 Series of Civil Jets manufactured by Dassault Aviation and thus will become part of its Global Supply Chain. These first steps are expected to achieve in the coming years, the possible setting up of final assembly of Rafale and Falcon Aircraft.

If NDA government had materialized the previously negotiated deal of 126 rafale fighters, the assembly of 108 Rafale Fighter and technology will go to Hindustan aeronautics (HAL)-a State owned company. Country would saved few billion rupees but Reliance will not be benefited with this deal. IAF still need more than 160 aircraft.  Reliance is setting assembly line for Rafale Fighter plane with partnership of Dassault and hence will be the strongest contender to supply aircraft to IAF under make in India initiative of PM Modi.

Now you know how politicians cheat ordinary citizens and pretend as the biggest patriot. Strategy of Mr. Modi is clear. Help big businessman when you are in Government, and take there help during elections. Buy media, buy opposition, buy exit poll, buy EVM, buy criminals, buy Judges and buy voters. Buy everything which money can buy and win election.

There can be much bigger game going on underground which need expert investigation. But undoubtedly Rafale deal is a very big scandal. If opposition will take it seriously and strongly, Mr. Rahul Gandhi can prove his caliber to be next PM.

Help poor’s to earn livelihood

We help beggars, sometimes because of their condition and sometimes because they irritate us by begging for long time. But when a poor person tries to earn money by hard work-we never help him. Instead we try to gain from his situation. For example: suppose there is a poor man trying to sell vegetables door to door. We will bargain from him and then we will ask Dhanya* in free.

We need to change our attitude. Let us help new starts up where people’s are putting sweat and blood to make it successful. Let us stop bargaining from poor wayfarer, cobblers, rickshaw-puller, maids and others doing similar works. Be generous towards them and soon you will find beggars around you are reducing. If by begging a beggar is earning suppose Rs 100 a day, and by working hard a labor is earning Rs.90 then ultimately people will be more inclined towards begging which requires less hard work.  The valve of 10 rupees for a poor person is 10 times greater than for rich person.

Sit and think for few minutes: who deserve your money more? A beggar who is begging without any obvious reasons or a person working hard and yet is not getting enough money to eat two times. But still he is not begging because he has self-esteemed .

Many Muslims gives Zakat (Charity), I think that instead of distributing your zakat in many persons, give it to one person. So that he /she can utilize it for some meaningful purpose. Moreover you can also give him some good practical advice based on your experience and help him in starting new small business. Based on profit-sharing you can invest some of your money in his business and boost his business.  Your primary goal will remain helping him but at the same time you can earn some money.

Many people have ideas and skill to earn money but have no money to start their work.  They are not so much educated that they can get loan from bank. Some people use their condition and give them money on very high interest. Due to lack of experience they hardly succeed in first attempt and spent whole life in returning interest. If you have money and you find someone doing small business like repairing tire puncher, selling door to door some small items etc. Go to him talk about him. Tell him about your investment plan. Make personal friendly relation with him. Ask if he has any idea how to grow business or give him your idea. Assure him that you really want to help him because of his condition. Motivate him to send his child to school. Help him in filling forms and other formalities. Don’t inverts huge amount of money. Just that much which you can let goes if everything fails. Business is a risky thing. Trust no one with your money. Do not hand over whole money in one time. Make a plan with him and issue money in installments. Make a verbal agreement about profit-sharing. Don’t be too greedy though. Be focus on your purpose of helping. Give him full freedom to do his work.

Since you helped him, which is very rare thing now a day, he will not cheat you most probably. Also, he knew that you may help him second time so it is not good idea to cheat you. Even if he will not return you anything, his success will be your reward.

By investing just Rs 50,000 a year, you can change many lives and might generate a secondary income. But the most important thing which you will earn will be happiness and satisfaction.

Should there be minimum educational qualification criteria to become Ministers in Indian Government? 

 

It is ironical that on one hand we never get tired telling importance of education, yet for biggest posts of country, there is no min. education qualification. The one who run the entire country, the one whose vision can take us forward or backward-need no education to become Government Ministers.

If a citizen wants to serve country, he can serve in many ways. It is not necessary to be CM or PM to serve nation. You can serve as a social activist (that too without any education), you can serve in army or just by becoming a law-abiding citizen. But important posts must be reserved for experts or at least for those who have a damn degree!

Many will argue that nation is not run by politicians but by Bureaucrat s and they are the one who are highly Qualified. Yes, I was in the same impression but no more. Since I saw Mr. Modi and Yogi Government I have my doubts. I can’t keep my eyes shut and believe Bureaucrat s are running our nation. No they are not! Not anymore!

No Bureaucrat will propose demonization the way it happened. No Bureaucrat will haste to implement GST without prior preparedness. If they did it, we must stop trusting ability of Bureaucracy and their selection procedure. But I am certain, they are not the one behind it. Because Politicians keep coming and going but Bureaucrats remain to serve new govt.

Education opens your mind. It makes you aware of your ignorance. You can be very hard-working; you can have high IQ but without education you can never have a clear world view.

The time has come when the Constitution should clearly tell a politician that he/she should possess some minimum education before entering into the Parliament/Assembly. Degrees must be authenticated from the college or University from where he/she peruse it. How a country with more than 60% literacy can accept illiterate or less educated person to take important position? Ministers not only represent India nationally but Internationally. If you are not educated you will always feel insecure about your education. One, who is becoming PM, must be able to understand that no. of voters cannot exceed total no. of citizen. One should have a common sense that no. of villages in one state cannot be greater than whole nation.

Let’s raise our voice about this issue.

Space exploration and Human steps on Mars

With the present speed of rockets (though it is still a marvel of human capability) future of deep space exploration is gloomy. But NASA and other space agencies are working on different propulsion fuel including nuclear to increase the speed of rockers. Hopefully, sooner than later we will have rockers fast enough which can make the journey to mars as short as three months.

In last 50 years of space exploration, we have not achieved anything amazing. Last big thing was when man landed on the moon. All space agencies are busy in sending satellites and rovers in outer space. We, the human have made outstanding growth in technologies. Whether it is Robotics, aviation, AI, automation, generating clean energy and much more. We are certainly capable of becoming multi planetary species. Private companies bring new ray of hope in this regard.

I am a huge fan of Elon Musk, a man behind companies like Space X and Tesla. He actually makes us feel that we already usher in 21st century. Anything is possible; we just need to dream big. The recent launch of falcon heavy with two boosters landing back simultaneously is just outstanding. Such success can’t be confined to a city or nation. It is a global achievement. Though I have not contributed anything in this success but I feel equally proud about success of technology built by human. It takes human nearer to the mission Mars.

There are so many enthusiastic people who are willing to go to Mars even when they know that Mars is not hospitable for life. But space agencies are busy in testing their robots and collecting more data. There was a time when people had only small boats, no navigation system, and no communication system back to the land but still people used to take risk and sailed to unknown lands without having slightest information about what kind of animal’s lives in ocean and what they might find on another land mass. Many died in such expedition, but some survived and came back successfully. They didn’t wait for right technology or full information. Their curiosity drove them far and wide. We must learn from them and be ready to take calculated risk.

Today we have technology. We have resources but still we do not have will to take action. One reason might be that as we are getting more information about Mars, we find it more and more inhospitable for human being. We need more reason for sending human to mars than we previously though. It will not be a honeymoon journey. With present speed of Rockets, it took 6 to 8 month to reach Mars. On mars, you will not find anything to eat or drink, no oxygen to inhale and surrounding harmful radiation. If that is not enough, Mars gravity is much less than earth. Which is not a good news for human well-being if they stay for long time!

There are many more mind-blowing life threatening facts about red planet. Temperature: minus 60 degrees Celsius which can still go down to minus 100 degrees Celsius. A summer day on Mars may get up to 20 degrees C near the equator, but at night the temperature can again drop to about minus 73 C. Mars also has big dust storm.

So, even if we will make homes on mars, still life will be difficult and whole day we have to remain inside a small room and in night we have to wear space suit to go out because mars atmospheric pressure is 0.6% compared to earth atmospheric pressure. Choice of food will be limited and water and air will be re-cycling again and again.

Disadvantages are far more than advantages to live on Mars. If we had a planet or moon with at least water on it or at least atmosphere with oxygen, then it would be worthwhile to haste. With all life threatening conditions and nine month long journey time, the only viable thing to make on mars is space station for maintenance of rockets and rovers, research facilities, cheap energy producing plants and re-filling of rockets. All this can be achieved by sending robots rather than humans. Only few human will suffice to control operations. Populating Mars is a distant dream which can only be realize by Terra forming Mars.
