Obama or NoBama

Its that time of the year, the gloves are out and fist fight is on- US elections is next year and decibel is going to increase only.
The Republic nominees look bad. Most of them have peaked and then gone down as soon as they zoomed up. For once it did look Newt would dethrone the favorite Mitt, but it looks like he has spent his powder now. I think Mitt will win the nomination but who is he going to choose as VP will be the interesting choice – Ron. Newt, Santorum or Perry. Well who knows he may for all pick Pallin or Mr. You are Fired guy.
The key fact remains is that in this time of uncertainty continuity is needed and Obama seems the best bet. Things in Europe are really going to get exciting… And one to watch out is what Goldman Sachs does 😉

The Lost Politicians: Story of Syama Prasad Mookerjee – 1953 Impact, Bengal’s Kashmir Connection

Where are they? The Politicians Who Could Have Made the Difference:

India a population of billion plus, has a billion plus stories. Some of these stories are known but many are lost in the sands of time. In today’s world when Big Boss, IPL are making news many of us would need to hear lost stories of certain politicians of union of India who tried made a difference, but their life and work was short-lived.

This series of articles is an attempt to look at such politicians. Links will be shared and some points will be highlighted.

The first story is about of Syama Prasad Mookerjee, Bengal’s connection with Kashmir.

Who he was, short timeline (taken fromofficial website):

  • Finance minister of Bengal Province during 1941-42
  • Post Independence: Interim Central Government as a Minister for Industry and Supply
  • Resigned from the Cabinet on April 6, 1950 on the issue of 1949 Delhi Pact with Pakistani Prime Minister Liaqat Ali Khan

  • Founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh (Indian People’s Union) on October 21, 1951

Key Impact on Kashmir and his mysterious death:

He went to visit Kashmir in 1953, and went on hunger strike to protest the law prohibiting Indian citizens from settling in a state in their own country and the need to carry ID cards, and was arrested on 11th May while crossing border.

Although the ID card rule was revoked owing to his efforts, he died as detenu on June 23, 1953 under mysterious circumstances. His death in custody raised wide suspicion across the country and demands for independent enquiry, including earnest requests from his mother, Jogmaya Devi to the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru.

“…do not bewail here the death of my beloved son. A fearless son of Free India has met his death while in detention without trial under most tragic and mysterious circumstances.”

(For more: See exchange of mail between Nehru and his mother, link below)

Unfortunately no enquiry commission was set up and his death remains a mystery.

But he did save Kashmir at that time, as post his death Nehru did take some action towards integrating the state into India.

However seeing the condition now what is happening with another mysterious death of a NC worker… is it conspiracy theory again.

Off With The Head!!! Impotent like Silence will lead to a Mushroom Cloud!!! Is anyone

Does the Establishment Need a Viagra to send those Soldiers Killers to meet with their promised VIRGINS?

When I woke in the morning before doing the normal chores I checked twitter, and was shocked to see tweet that spoke of two Indian jawans beheaded either by Pakistanis regular army or terrorist. The irony is this incident happened when the talks with Pakistani foreign minister Ms. Hira Rabbani Khar was finishing.

This is not the first time Indian army or security forces have been treated this way, and I doubt it will be the last with the impotent silence from the establishment. Just look at the list below:

  • 1999 Kargil: Six Indian soldiers (Lt Saurabh Kalia and six jawans) were severely mutilated bodies. They were tortured and even had eyes gouged, and private part removed by Pakistanis troops
  • 1999 Kargil: Ajay Ahuja, a pilot who ejected was shot at point blank range when he landed
  • 1999 Bangladesh: Eleven BSF jawans were killed by Bangadesh Rangers and we did not take any action (at-least announced ones)
  • 2000 LOC: Sepoy Bhausaheb Maruti Talekar of the 17 Maratha Light Infantry (MLI) was beheaded and seven of his colleagues killed by Ilyas Kashmiri and the head supposedly given to Pervez Musharraf Ilyas Kashmiri was rewarded then. Now he is dead due to US drone strike and may be has VIRGINS around him (pop quiz –what if the terrorist is gay?).
  • 2011 (not confirmed from blogs only): Two, 20 Kumaon regiment soldiers, Havildar Jaipal Singh Adhikari and Lance Naik Devender Singh and one from 19 Rajput (no names given) murdered – beheaded and dumped headless.

Beheading as a phenomenon is across many cultures throughout history. Japanese did this during World War 2 against prisoners of war, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Philippines, Chechnya and many more by militants and jihadist have used this as a practice. And who can forget the Daniel Pearl incident, committed by peaceful men (sic). May be this is where the Pakistani army belongs then, a bunch of hooligans.

NO! They are not; the hooligans are the people in the establishment who are silent as our soldiers meet this fate. Even the media is crying on U.P. murders happening in Mayavati’s regime (Next year UP election coming so sponsored media spin on kya??????)

I wonder if we can shoot down a Pakistani air force plane, like Atlantique was shot down in 1999.

Some place in my country now, a mother is crying for her son, and a sister is calling for her brother. Is this what our soldiers deserve? Some official sources, we can’t announce it as it will hit morale. Great if the worlds largest democracy can’t take a hit on the chin who will. Yesterday 31 special operation men from US army (including 20 people who were involved in Osama operation), we killed. This is mostly been seen as a Taliban strike, and did the US government maintain silence.

This is not what we Indians have signed up for in this kind of democracy. Either there is an information overload or is it the whole establishment and system is corrupted at all places.

If you can spend USD 18 billion to hold CWG Delhi 2010 seven years after winning the bid. My question to the government is why it is taking ages to get Defense upgrade of air-craft, the 126 airlines or others to pass through. Do we need a nuke attack to wake up?

Wait…if we get nuked we won’t wake up. So that is the plan I think…. and let’s see what is there for dinner; Mushroom rice!!!!!

Femme Fatale and Bare Legs Long Syndrome in India…the Hira Rabbani Khar Effect

Back in the mid 90’s (Feb. 1996) if Rebecca Marks (of Enron defame) had pulled out a spectacular stunner in bringing (some say) sex starved politician back to negotiating table to then save the Dhabol project in Maharashtra (guess who was in power then). She had the business acumen to negotiate and get a deal. She also had short skirts, bare long legs and high heels had many bureaucrats, politicians around the world tongue out gapping for more…and India media did go ga-ga-gu-gu then.

Fast forward 16 years…a whole new generation, but same story.

Ms. Hina Rabbani Khar touches down in New Delhi, and Indian media ga-ga-gu-gu- ten times over. It was appalling to hear a celebrity politician (from the 26/11 city) smiling gleefully cheek to cheek welcoming the beautiful blah… blah… blah… the beautiful …blah… blah. I wonder what his wife and daughter had to say that day.

A 34 four year old femme fatale, dressed for the occasion, like an Indian media reported  “her monotone outfit of a blue the colour of the season, tasteful accessories Roberto Cavalli sunglasses, stylish Hermes Birkin bag (worth more than US$ 9,000/- or US$ 15,000 etc – may be BIG FIGHT show can be put) and glass pearl jewelry added a glamour to her look”

Gosh, wish we had more politicians like her, then our people may do some serious business. OK so who is this lady?

Bullet Points around Hina Rabbani Khar


  • Hina Rabbani Khar (HRK) was born on 19th July 1977 in Multan, Pakistan
  • Ms Khar went to Lahore University of Management Sciences to do her graduation in Economics in 1999. She also did a M.Sc. from the University of Massachusetts in 2001. The World Economic Forum listed her name as young global leaders in 2008
  • Ms Khar is married to Feroz Gulzar, a noted Pakistani businessman and is a proud mother of 2 sons and a daughter
  • She also co-owns a posh and popular upscale restaurant, Polo Lounge in the Lahore Polo Grounds in Islamabad
  • Political tie through her father and uncle being the Ex Minister and Ex Governor and Chief Minister of Pakistani province of Punjab
  • In 2002, she became an elected member of the National Assembly for the first time with a Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid-e-azam) [PML-Q] ticket
  • 2008 the PML-Q did not issue her a ticket, she changed her allegiance to PPP. In the election she had a clear sweep by winning with a margin of over 84,000 votes
  • Ms Khar had been the Minister of State for Economic Affairs and Statistics
  • She is also the first woman in the history of Pakistani politics to present a budget speech.
  • After handling the post of State Minister for Foreign Affairs for some time, Ms Khar was elevated to the Foreign Minister’s shoes in July 2011 as Shah Mehmood Qureshi resigned from the office

Why is she given this position – What’s may be the hidden agenda ?
It was on the onset of her designation as the Pakistani Foreign Minister that President Zardari had made it clear that Ms Khar’s appointment will “send positive signals about the soft image of Pakistan”. This was much needed as the illicit nexus of Pakistani politicians and military personnel with the Islamic terror outfits has b een proven. A stigma of being the chief patron for the Islamic terrorists and jihadists looms large over its image.

Today, Pakistan strives much to have the world’s confidence by shedding off the tag of being the epicentre of Islamic terrorism. And the country is in much need of a face to assert its lost image. As much of a country’s image generates through its Foreign Minister, Pakistan was in a dire need of appointing a fresh face who could epitomise the air of modernism. Hence, Ms Khar, an ardent fashionista who loves polo and trekking, has given the charge.

As she has touched down the Indian soil for taking on the peace talks further in between the arch-rivals India and Pakistan. The world eagerly waited to see how she takes it in her first major diplomatic outing….which she gave to the Kashmiri separatist’s elements.

But one thing is for sure, Ms Khar has definitely taken the Indian media at a sway with her calm and confident approach to things. According to the noted political commentators, Ms Khar’s youth and glamour will surely have an unprecedented advantage to open the lock gates and start afresh the peace dialogues between these India and Pakistan. And why not…66% of Indians and 75% of Pakistanis are below 35 years of age.

Old history may now matter now. But the K word still remains.

Will Hina Rabbani Khar be shrewd enough to successfully navigate the troubled waters of Indo-Pak relations? Will she be able to make a difference in this age-old saga of coldness and hatred between these two neighbouring countries? Or will she struggle to hold her own in high pressure diplomacy and eventually break down like her predecessors?

There are lots of answers to find…and how can India counter it…well Bollywood may have some answer (see funny tweets below)

For the FPUN of it: HRK is going to star with SRK with great KRK as villain, and the story is about KKR team playing for battle for K.

pHunny Tweets on HRK: (sorry could not add the source)

  • There’s only one way to counter Hina Rabbani Khar. India should appoint Emran Hashmi as foreign minister
  • Dear Pakistani friends pls take Sushma Swaraj and give us Hina Rabbani Khar!
  • We find out that Hina Rabbani Khar’s bag is from Janpath
  • Bagging the attention
  • Pakistans Weapon Of Mass Distraction

Now I am Talking: HRK and Late Richard Holbrooke (special adviser on Pakistan and Afghanistan)

HRK-Don’t forget K, RH- I know you are Khar, HRK – I meant the other K

Let us give her a chance, and once again go with an open mind for umpteen time. There are many issues to be resolved apart from K: Siachen, Sir Creak, water sharing, fishermen, 26/11, Samjhota express, PoW,  and…Shaksgam valley hand over to China (this I am adding) …etc.

But always remember US President Ronald Reagan dictum: Trust, But Verify
