Dedicated to “Bharat” and “Dharma”

Lets come together to build a *new* and proud India…

Many of you must have read and followed with great interest the avalanche of comments in response to the events in Karnataka involving Lok Paritran.

Several of you have also underlined how important it is for all of us to come together and join this fight against corruption, ineffective governance and indifferent political leadership that we currently have – both at the national as well as state level.

Fortunately a number of options exist.

For those of you who are keen to plunge into active politics straight away, I would suggest having a look at Bharat Uday Mission, Bharat Punarnirman Dal, Professionals Party of India and Loksatta as serious options.

For those of you who do not want to jump in just yet (or cannot do this at this stage), I would suggest keeping a close watch and an active interest in these developments – on this blog – as well as elsewhere on the blogosphere and traditional media.

To those of you who are keen and have decided to contest elections at some stage, I would suggest joining the Freedom Team of India

And to everyone I would say, please do not give up…one bad apple does not make an orchard worthless…We are at the cusp of greatness and good things will come out of this…we need to keep our morale high and our hopes alive..

Above all, we need to be prepared – in terms of strategy, policies and resources…so that we are ready when the time comes.  This is going to be a monumental task – akin to the struggle for freedom.

We need everyone together in this effort.

Please show your support by leaving a comment and a contact email address here (which will remain private).

Please feel free to offer ideas, suggestions and next steps..

If there is enough interest, we can begin by organising “virtual” meet-ups on the net/skype followed by physical meetings in various cities..

If you wish to contact me privately, you can always do so at jai.dharma AT gmail.com

Finally, some of you may disagree with my ideas (on this blog)…All I would say is, please dont let our differences come in the way of our over-riding goal -  that of building a proud nation that can occupy its rightful position in the 21st century.

I would like to end with this quote:

“Since you have come into this world, leave some mark behind…otherwise what is the difference between you and the trees and the stones?”  – Swami Vivekananda

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.

  1. Dear Patriot,

    I am putting up my case in front of the blog readers.
    And while presenting in detailed case one can present
    an experts views also, which i am doing by presenting
    views of some of the economist and other related to financial markets and banking.

    And surely i would support them with statistics/charts and facts and evidence in latter stages on how the dollar is going to weaken

    My thesis is simple “Dollar valuation is not real,Get rid of the US dollar and buy some real valued assets”

    and why am i interested in US economy or US dollar is because… India holds a US$200billion reserves (and increasing and by the time we’l be in govt it will be in trillions).. which shouldnt turn into tissue paper.

    If i was in government i would exchange that US$200 billion into gold or Euros or other currencies,

    or by creating soverign fund buy US real estate or like you(patriot) said the most profit making units/products are wood and wheat of US.. so. Buy US agriculture..or buy Microsoft or Oil fields across the world immediately and exit US treasury bills or keep a minimum exposure to it avert financial disaster.

    Today in globalized economy we as a govt need to understand.. what is a asset and what is a liability.
    So exit US liablities like Dollars and buy US assets like
    real estate,agriculture,companies,mines etc.

    HENCE POLITICALY ALSO WE ARE NOT ISOLATING US as we are keeping relations in form of Indias soverign assets in US.
    And also politely getting rid of their Useless dollar… so we wont face the uncle SAMs direct indirect brunt.

    There are many hurdles in the above proposals i have mentioned, right from India creating soverign funds to US allowing India to own their Assets… but since this thread is on “Lets come together to build and new and powerful India” Debates,discussion and consenses building has to be started from now… so when the current generation or we are in power, immediate implementations should take place.

    जय हिंद ! जय महाराष्ट्र !!

  3. My understanding is that, FTI has a noble goal of developing india economically, preventing corruption etc.
    But I also understand that FTI is anti-hindu and anti-indian, due to their support for religious conversion, western lifestyle, materialistic ambitions. I get an impression that they undermine the rich history of India, portray the past invading regimes as golden regimes. I also believe they are prejudiced against BJP and RSS, as any fundamentalist christian organization do. No offence meant, but its a genuine confusion on FTI, especially since Santhanu has recommended specifically.
