Kargil War Story, ‘Setting Up Zoo Priority’ Over Surveillance

In India on April 10, 2014 at 21:29

What the Government of India and the Army tried to hush up is open .

 

Not only the ground intelligence of the impending attack by Pakistan and the intrusion of Pakistani  Irregulars into India, the Army was busy organizing

a Zoo, vetoing Air Surveillance!

 

VK Singh praises Musharaff

VK Singh Comments on Musharraf

 

Equal measure of responsibility by the then Political Masters who wanted to play to the International Gallery.

 

While it is reported that the Army tried to destroy the Documents relating to Kargil War, the Congress, in the opposition then made a cursory

noise,possibly a reciprocal arrangement for BJP not putting up adequate pressure on Security issues.

 

And note the Candidates being put up by the Congress against Modi!

 

Viva La Democracy!

 

Story:

 

“Establishment India and its non-official spokespersons insist, despite a string of media exposes, that there were no institutional military failures in the months before the war. Over the last 14 months, the most damning pieces of evidence of such failur es have been discredited and suppressed. Claims that Brigadier Surinder Singh, the then Commander of the 121 Brigade, warned of possible conflict have been flatly rejected by officials as untrue. ..

 

The documents also show that his superiors, including former Chief of the Army Staff V.P. Malik, refused to act on these warnings, and even blocked 121 Brigade initiatives to defend Kargil more intensively. Wh ile the broad contents of the 121 Brigade papers have figured in several publications, including Frontline, this is the first time the original documents have been acquired and made available to the public.

WHAT MALIK WAS TOLD

On August 25, 1998, Major R.K. Dwivedi, the Brigade-Major of the 121 Brigade, sent out a letter marked 124/GSD/Vis. To this letter were attached the contents of Surinder Singh’s proposed briefing of Malik on the security situation in Kargil, scheduled to take place during the Chief of the Army Staff’s visit to Kargil the following month. The 42-point document was, during the final presentation, backed by slides.

Right at the outset, the 121 Brigade briefing paper analysed, in terse military shorthand, the possible “En(emy) Pattern” for the coming months. Pakistan, paragraph 5(a) noted, would seek to keep conflict “alive after (the Pokhran-II) nuc(lear) blasts an d in view (of the) SAARC m(ee)t(in)g of 29 Jul(y) 98 and now for (the) NAM m(ee)t(in)g.”..

3 Division took the best part of a fortnight to get back to this letter. Major V.K. Chattre, General Staff Officer 2 to the officiating Colonel General Staff, wasted few words. “Your proposal is not approved,” letter 1124/Trg flatly said. 15 Corps Headqu arters in Srinagar, at that time in charge of the 3 Infantry Division, did not see fit to intervene in the debate. Requests for additional troops were not even graced with a reply. One letter generated by the 121 Brigade’s Major R.K. Dwivedi, on behalf o f Surinder Singh, marked 101/GS(Ops)/ANE, pointed to a recent mine explosion on the highway, and underlined the need for troops to protect the road and vulnerable villages. No troops were deployed. Indeed, despite the 121 Brigade’s protests, the 9 Mahar Regiment was actually withdrawn, leaving the Yaldor area wide open.

FIVE HUNDRED IRREGULARS, AND A ZOO

Nothing better illustrates the space between the worlds of 3 Division Headquarters and the 121 Brigade than two letters that form part of the papers Frontline’s investigation has unearthed.

On May 16, 1998, 3 Division sent out instructions to all its field units informing them of their commanding officer, Major-General V.S. Budhwar’s new pet project: building a zoo for the sake of Leh‘s few thousand residents. Lieutenant-Colonel U.K. Singh sent out a second missive, marked 6361/9/ZOO/Q1 on June 8, 1998. “Please ensure,” the Colonel’s letter read, “that various types of wild animals/birds are procured and despatched to zoo at Leh at your earliest.” “Cages required for transportation of anim als/birds,” it continued, “will be made under arrangements of respective b(riga)de(s).” “No representation,” the Colonel concluded sternly, “will be entertained.”

Government Pentavalent Vaccine Kills Children

In Harmful products, Health on February 22, 2014 at 12:19

I had posted about unsafe Vaccines   being used in India, with the active participation of the Government of India.

One such Vaccine, Pentavalent vaccine kills children.

vaccine Kills.

Pentavalent vaccine Kills

Story:

(NaturalNews) Opposition is mounting in many developing countries against the use of pentavalent, or five-in-one, vaccines, which are being aggressively pushed by health authorities as a public health requirement. Reports indicate that an increasing number of mostly infants are dying not long after receiving the controversial jab, which is said to trigger an immune response to five different diseases in a single vaccine.

For instance, V.S. Achuthanandan, the Leader of the Opposition in Kerala, India, recently stated publicly that pentavalent vaccines should no longer be included as part of the government’s immunization program. Joining a chorus of opposition that recently erupted into a wave of protests, Achuthanandan referenced the many babies who have died following the vaccine as evidence that it should no longer be administered as part of the standard vaccination schedule.

These statements come as India’s central government gears up to expand the pentavalent vaccine program to another 11 Indian states, according to Health.India.com. Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, admitting that there has been a noticeable increase in adverse events following administration of the vaccine for diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B and Hib, claims this damage is not a result of the vaccine.

But many others disagree, including Dr. Jacob Puliyel, a pediatrician and member of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization. He told reporters that, contrary to what the Indian government is claiming, many of the deaths that have occurred following the administration of pentavalent vaccines show clear signs of a causal relationship.

“The deaths associated with this vaccine have been sporadic… and follows the pattern of anaphylaxis reactions,” stated Dr. Puliyel. “[I]f a drug is known to have caused this form of fatal reaction, it is not permissible to give it without doing sensitivity testing… which is not carried out in the case of pentavalent…. Trivialising all these deaths as coincidental amounts to obscuring the real picture.”

India’s Adverse Events Following Immunization committee denies any link between pentavalent vaccines and the infant deaths, but the evidence speaks for itself. Even the World Health Organization (WHO), which heavily promotes the use of vaccines, admits that adverse events do happen, which is why the group is funding research into adverse event assessment tools.

“Serious illnesses or even deaths may rarely occur after childhood vaccinations,” reads a study on injuries and deaths associated with vaccines that was published in the journal Vaccine late last summer.

While this study was actually initiated to come up with ways to avert implicating vaccines with vaccine-induced injuries, it does still make the admission that vaccines can and do lead to serious injury or even death in some cases. This definitely appears to be the case with pentavalent vaccine, which health officials time and time again have been unable to rule out as a likely cause of death in some children.

Pocket Money Alarming Trends IndiaTakes Action

In Education, Parenting on August 31, 2013 at 13:04

Pocket Money is the money given to children by the parents to spend.

Pocket Money in India

Pocket Money In India, A Study.

This is addition to what is being provided at Home by way of Food, Shelter Clothing, Study expenses and in fact covers everything.

This concept  is a new one, since about fifteen years,;even then, it was not followed as it is being done now.

We were provided  every thing by the parents at Home(about 50 years back) and I did not even know what to ask.

I used accept what was given by my father.

Even School textbooks were not asked for.

If I needed something, which was rare, at times I used to ask my mother and what I wanted was provided, but never Money.

Today, we find Pocket Money is being demanded as a matter of Right by the children and parents also consider this as a part of a Child growing into an adult!

It sounds funny.

Why does a child require Money and why do parents encourage it?

One point is that the peer Pressure exerted on the Parents by the other parents  on the one hand  and , on the other,the pressure exerted by the child’s friends.

Many parents resort to this practice to show their status,also to assuage their guilt feeling of not being with the child  as much as they would like because of the fact that both Husband and wife are employed.

They think they are compensating this by giving money to children.

At a relatively young age, say up to 10 years, if you bring up the child properly. the child would not ask for Pocket Money and what it needs is the fact that the Father/Mother personally  bought something for him

Once you allow the child the taste of money, it never leaves.

The child develops a taste for things which it can not afford and assumes that the Money is there merely for the asking.

When you have money, one tends to spend on things one does not need, this applies more to Adults,look at your credit card purchase-s you would have bought things which you would otherwise have not bought if you hard currency ;such being the case, imagine a child!

When the child has  more money it tends to develop bad habits like Smoking< Drinking and begin to use drugs.

As usual parents are the last to know of this.

Then things had gone beyond control.

Another serious implication is that when the child does not get the money from you it starts stealing , first from Home ,then later from other people.

I am not sounding an undue Alarm.

Survey at .

http://www.bemoneyaware.com/survey.php

This I have observed in quite a number of cases.

The issue has assumed such serious proportions that the Government of India has come out with a Scheme to regulate this and create an awareness among the students and the parents.

I am providing some thoughts from another source;

Pocket money as the name suggests is money given to children to take care of petty expenses. This amount of money can be given by parents’ everyday, every week or every month or even on adhoc basis, as and when the child requires it. As long as the child has the freedom to spend the money, it will be deemed as pocket money.

Parents extensively differ in their perspectives of whether or not to give pocket money to children. Some parents believe that pocket money should not be given since

*
That will make the child feel that ‘parents money is not his/her money’,
*
‘It could lead to fights between children’,
*
‘Unhealthy competition amongst children on the amount of pocket money they get’
*
Loss of control on where children spend the money’

However, giving pocket money to children has several advantages:

*
Children feel a sense of independence and responsibility towards spending the money the right way. They learn & understand the value of money. They also learn to understand that amount of money is limited and they need to always choose between their various desires to ensure correct use of their pocket money.
*
Children get into the habit of planned income and expenditure. They also learn about saving & budgeting. For eg: if they want to buy a present for their mother’s birthday, they will need to put aside some amount of money every month to collect the commensurate amount and buy the gift.
*
Giving pocket money to children also makes them feel an important part of the family since they know that they get a part of the family’s monthly income.
Some parents even believe in their children earning pocket money. What does that mean? It means that parents can often inculcate values/ beliefs/ actions in their children by rewarding them for it in the form of pocket money. In such cases, parents divide the pocket money amount in two parts:

*
One that is given on a timely basis.
*
Second that is earned against some house jobs. For eg: every Sunday, you could start giving a fixed sum of money to your son if he helps his father in cleaning the car. Or if your daughter helps around in dusting the house. This will in a way also inculcate the habit of weekly cleanliness in them since childhood. Similarly, if you strongly wish to inculcate the value of ‘ helping others’ in your children, you could promise them an extra sum of money during summer vacations if they help your maid’s child learn the basics of math.

Pocket Money , Indian Government Initiative.

Pocket Money – Financial Education in Schools
NISM has developed a program to impart basic financial skills to school students (Classes VIII upwards). Named as ‘Pocket Money’, this program has been developed as an eight (90 minute) session course.This is a joint initiative being conducted by SEBI and NISM. We have done a pilot initiative covering 30 schools and 4000 students. We will soon be launching the program in various parts of the country.

For more information about this program please go through this short presentation:

Download here for the programme.

The Government is tying up with schools and educate children , parents and the Teachers on this issue.

Studies On Pocket Money in India.

A 2011 study by ASSOCHAM on “Current Pocket Money Trends in Urban India” spoke to over 3,000 respondents in the 12-20 years age group in five metros, including Chennai (which was at the bottom of the list in terms of pocket money – the maximum was Rs.5,000). Shockingly, it revealed that children were getting pocket money upwards of Rs.12,000 in India, many times more than the few thousands that children were used to getting just six years ago. Apparently, big budget items that kids were going in for was gadgets (55 per cent), 25 per cent spent money on movies and malls, and about 20 per cent on eating out.

“Food is on top of the list – for all children, irrespective of their socio economic strata. If they have money, they buy food. Unfortunately, most of it is junk food and fizzy drinks,” Dr. Kumarababu explains.

Coupled with a sedentary lifestyle, this leads to obesity and a whole string of metabolic disorders that are best prevented at a young age, doctors say. The next big spending is on gadgets and on video games CDs and DVDs, all of which further encourage a sedentary life.

My suggestion is not to give Pocket Money right from the early childhood and provide children what they need by yourself.

In case you can not avoid this , make sure the child keeps an account and shows it to you daily.

Schools may encourage children to save and set Marks for Saving for A  ‘Pass’/Rank.

Government Lies on New 2 G Auction,Comparing Circle With Square?

In Corruption, India on December 5, 2012 at 08:11

The Government of India led by the vociferous Kapil Sibal, who seems to believe that higher decibel levels means the Truth and the assertion by others in the Comedy group led by Sonia Gandhi have stated that if the CAG’s report of the notional loss of Rs.1,76,000 lakh crore were true, where is it, as the recent auction of the 22 Licences of 2G brought only 9400 Crore?(‘

The auction for second-generation (2G) mobile phone licences raised 94bn rupees ($1.7bn; £1bn). The government had wanted closer to 400bn rupees.

Many companies had complained that prices were set too high. BBC)

Many seem to believe this non sense.

Mobility and Bandwidth Comparison between various Systems. 2GMobility and Bandwidth

Facts.

2G is an out dated Technology, where you can not transfer data like SMS and we now have 3G raging in the market.

The band  now is 1800 Megahertz , while 900 Megahertz is not auctioned at all.

For non technical idiots like me, this means,the loin cloth that has been superseded by Sarong,is ignored and now the High end X front underwear has come into the market.

Why would some one buy a Loin Cloth?

Even then, the present auction fetched 9400 Crore for 22 Licences while Raja’s first come first served brought not even this much for 122 licences!

The Government knew that the technology is out dated so much that they did not auction 900 mega Hertz as they knew it would be a Dud.

Again to justify their stand that there was no loss, they have deliberately auctioned this now and the Corporate cooperated by forming a cartel to quote a lower price;even then greed out stripped manipulation and the present auction brought in 9400 Crore!

As poet Bharathi put it ‘பேய் அரசாண்டால் , பிணம் தின்னும் சாத்திரங்கள் ‘

If the Devil Rules, Righteous Laws shall eat Corpse,

‘2G (or 2-G) is short for second-generation wireless telephone technology. Second generation 2G cellular telecom networks were commercially launched on the GSM standard in Finland byRadiolinja (now part of Elisa Oyj) in 1991.[1] Three primary benefits of 2G networks over their predecessors were that phone conversations were digitally encrypted; 2G systems were significantly more efficient on the spectrum allowing for far greater mobile phone penetration levels; and 2G introduced data services for mobile, starting with SMS text messages.

After 2G was launched, the previous mobile telephone systems were retrospectively dubbed 1G. While radio signals on 1G networks are analog, radio signals on 2G networks are digital. Both systems use digital signaling to connect the radio towers (which listen to the handsets) to the rest of the telephone system.

2G has been superseded by newer technologies such as 2.5G2.75G3G, and 4G; however, 2G networks are still used in many parts of the world.’

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2G

.The Centre on Thursday justified in the Supreme Court non-auctioning of 900 MHz spectrum in 2G licences on November 12 along with 1800 and 800 MHz spectrum as it was not the subject matter of 122 licences which were cancelled pursuant to the February 2 judgment.

In an affidavit, the Telecom Secretary R. Chandrasekhar said “no spectrum in the 900 MHz band was put to auction pursuant to the judgment of this Court because no spectrum in the said band of 900 MHz was subject matter of the judgment dated February 2 and further, in any event, there is no available spectrum in this band of 900 MHz. The entire 25 MHz of spectrum in the 900 MHz band available for communication purposes is being fully utilized.”

The Centre gave a chart of licences with date of issue and period of expiry to drive home the point that at the time of expiry from 2014, the band 900 MHz would be available for fresh auction. It said “the spectrum that has been put to auction now is in terms of the final decision taken by the Central Government after duly considering the recommendations of TRAI, Redistribution of 900 MHz spectrum among all the GSM operators would mean fragmenting the spectrum below 5 MHz block. The 900MHz band is valuable from 3G point of view and utilising it for 2G purposes would mean uneconomic use of a valuable commodity.
