“LET THEM EAT CAKE”

Government says it is compelled to reduce subsidies on essential commodities to meet its balance of payment crisis. They laments over the huge budget deficits.They say India can no longer afford to remain a welfare state and must adopt an entrepreneurial government approach.

On one hand Government is announcing free laptops and i-pads to voters and on the other hand they are reducing subsidies to finance their election promises. Is this entrepreneurial govt? Taxpayer’s money are used for paying MGNREGA workers but what assets have we generated in 7 yrs of its implementation. I still see no roads, water reservoirs, etc. developed out of MGNREGA. Is this entrepreneurial govt? Petroleum prices are being increased citing the huge losses made by petroleum companies and reduction of subsidies. But why no one is saying that USA pays 20% more subsidy than India on every essential products. They have money to pay the subsidies. Does Indian govt. is short of money? If yes, then why did they not try to generate money through allocation of natural resources. More than sixty lakh crores have been lost due to various political corruption in 2012 alone (Click Here to know more) and Govt ministers shamelessly says there is zero loss. The Special Economic Zones are being designed to cater the needs of capitalist classes, but what about aam aadmi. SEZ provides zero tax to companies and other benefits at subsidised rates. Mr Kamal Nath argues that this is being done to boost exports. But Mr Nath, please tell that exports through SEZs accounted for only 4% of total exports (2008-09 data) whereas exports through SMEs accounted for about 34.5%. Then who should be provided tax benefits. The capitalists setting up huge industries in SEZ or the common poor people involved in small and medium industries.

Manmohan Singh has suddenly become Manmohan Singham and is keen on implementing reforms. FDI in retail is on top of his cards. But tell me why does he become Singham only when it is the matter of providing benefits to foreign  firms and countries (last time he became Singham during US nuclear deal). Why is he not becoming Singham on the so many rapes being committed in India? FDI in retail is supported by me as it will make the lives of many middle class families in India easy. A bania sells ten rupees cold drinks for twelve rupees citing refrigeration charges, a chemist sells duplicate medicines, an electronics shop sells televisions, refrigerators at high prices (esp. during festive and marriage seasons). Bringing MNCs in this sector will reduce the monopoly of banias and also generate revenues for government since banias never gives cash memos for the items they sell. But citing back end infrastructure development as the main reason of allowing FDI is not digestible. Mr Manmohan Singh is saying that foreign retails will develop storage houses and thus will save food grains from rotting. But tell me what were you doing for past 65 yrs. You have Food Corporation of India for this purpose and you have not been able to construct godowns. A lot of money is wasted every year for this particular purpose and on papers hundreds of godowns are constructed every year, but Mr Manmohan Singh says we need Walmart to construct storage houses for us. Take my advise Mr Singh; shut down FCI and with the money used for paying these idiots salary, build storage houses. Build thousands of them. Very recently Maharashtra farmers were destroying their potatoes produce citing very low prices. Had Indian govt. developed a good network of godowns, they could have bought it from farmers and stored it for future use. But no, govt is more interested in reducing subsidies on LPG cylinders. Fine, the people often going to CCDs. KFCs, McD, etc will not have much problem in paying the non subsidised LPG cylinders but why do you take the plea of lack of money with the govt as a reason for reducing the subsidies? You did not think of this before allotting coal mines at throw away prices to Naveen Jindal and the alike or providing lease of IGI Airport to GMR group (which caused a loss of 166,000 crores).

2014 Lok Sabha polls are coming and since Mr Manmohan Singh’s government policies are very myopic, they can bring Food Security Bill at that time to gather votes. But this bill will again prove to be a big burden on the exchequer and further aggravate the inflation scenario in the country. Mr Manmohan Singh may be having this Bill in mind while announcing reduction of subsidies. The money thus saved through reduction may be used for the Food Security Bill. Who cares for the burden of increase in prices of essential commodities? Certainly Mr Vadra and his high C2C paid friends in DLF do not.

Improving the micro-economic datas of the country is very important, especially when we have a trade deficit of around six lakh crores. But certainly not at the cost of aam aadmi. If govt seriously wanted to bring the economy back on track, it could have done easily by simply auctioning two natural resources of the country – 2G and coal. Six lakh trade deficit could have been reduced to two and half lakh crores.

Its time we should seriously introspect and find a political alternative. Here’s a look of the vision document of Kejriwal’s party:

1.    Lokpal Bill will be brought in within 10 days of the party being voted to power.

2.    People will decide the price of essential commodities.

3.    Any person can lodge a complaint against any leader with the Lokpal.

4.    No beacons on cars of any MPs or MLAs.

5.    All expenditure and fund details to be posted on the party’s website.

6.    All colonial laws on land acquisition to be abolished.

7.    Right to Reject and Right to Recall.

8.    A maximum of 2 years to act on any case of corruption.

9.    Everyone will be provided with good education and good healthcare services.

10.    Farmers will be given good price for their produce.

11.    People will have the right to participate in the formulation of laws and government’s policies.

12.    No government money will be used in any area without the will of the people.

Kejriwal does not promises any Aarakshan or Ram Mandir or Laptops or Berozgari bhatta….As simple as that.

Next time think before you vote. And please vote.

DHARMO RAKSHATHI RAKSHITAH

THE FORGOTTEN SOLDIER

CLICK HERE to read an interesting article from THE HINDU, dated 04 Oct. 2012.

I do not know much of the incidents in and around Operation Blue Star but one thing I am sure that Jarnail Singh Brar/Bhindranwale was allotted 10 arms licenses at a stretch on the recommendations of PMO, which was then headed by Mrs Indira Gandhi. Jarnail had earlier campaigned a lot for the Congress party in assembly elections and even fielded his candidates for SGPC elections. After being unsuccessful in democratic methods, he was frustrated and wanted to try other means to get in power. It was this power-hunger of Jarnail which made him fall in the trap of the ex Chief Minister of Punjab Giani Zail Singh and Mrs Gandhi. Both of them used Jarnail to destabilise the Akali Dal government of Prakash Singh Badal in Punjab. And they were even successful to some extent. Jarnail carried out widespread killings of Nirankaris and Hindus including Lala Jagat Narain. But soon Mrs Gandhi’s pet turned against her and pointed the barrel at her own godmother. He called her bitch and all other sorts of name. But even then Mrs Gandhi was assured that Jarnail would return to her with swinging tails and so she even asked the then Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal to go slow on Jarnail.

Jarnail never actually demanded Khalistan in the first place but warned his sikh brothers of insecurity they are facing in the ocean of Hindus. Although later he said on one occasion that if he is granted a separate country, he would not refuse. Obviously this statement came under the influence of ISI who provided him arms and money. Mrs Gandhi kept on ignoring Jarnail and considered him as a minor threat. She was more occupied with the Red Terrorists emerging in the eastern part of the country then. But when she actually thought of teaching Jarnail a lesson, he had went inside the temple with arms and ammunition and had strongly fortified it. He was infact warned by his ISI friends of a military crackdown, today or tomorrow.

Many top army brass refused to carry out the operation and had to face the wrath of Mrs Gandhi. Finally it was Gen Vaidya who took up the job of leading his men into the most controversial military operation of the world. He was supported by Mr Brar. It was Brar’s decision to call in the tanks to make a final assault. Within minutes of the involvement of the tanks, Bhagwan Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale a.k.a. Bhindru was dead.

But still some questions haunt the Sikh community people and the personnel of Indian Amry:

QUE 1) Was Indian Army and its personnel who carried out Operation Blue Star did anything wrong?

QUE 2.) Was Bhindranwale a freedom fighter and thus a martyr or simply a terrorist?

QUE 3.) Is the assassination of Gen Vaidya and attempted assassination on Lt. Gen Brar justified?

QUE 4.) Why was Bhindranwale allowed in the first place to have weapons and also allowed to fortify the Golden Temple premises?

Questions may be lot more, but the answer lies in an another incident which took place in Akshardham temple of Gujarat where around 200-250 devotees were taken hostage by two terrorists. NSG commandos were deputed to flush out the terrorists and they did the job as usual. However they even lost one of their companion in the gunfight. Around 40-50 civilians also died in the crossfire. But no hindu came up and said  that the NSG operation was not justified or those who entered the Akshardham temple to kill the terrorists must be assassinated, etc etc. Even the muslims of India and most of the other nations of the world do not call those terrorists as martyrs as terrorists do not have any religion or ideology. They are simply psychopaths suffering from some sort of serious neuron disorder. So why are these sikhs making so much brouhaha. Bhindru was a terrorist and so was gunned down. Sikh should in fact be thankful to people like Mr Brar who freed the community of its stain.

HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE

MF Hussain was praised…. Salman Rushdie was ridiculed….and now Aseem Trivedi is seditious.

Cannot we have a same set of laws for everyone? Netas looting lakhs of crores are not traitors, MF Hussain painting nude Hindu deities is not blasphemous, but Rushdie and Trivedi are. WHY? Unfortunately Freedom of Speech is always attacked by Fascist mentality, which unfortunately is present in India also.

I remember my days at college. We had our problems. Every college students have problem with their authorities. This is nothing new. But since we had Indian Army as our authority (arian) we were denied to speak. There were goons in our college, but Army authorities told us to bear with them and even threatened us with dire consequences if we speak. Their excuse was that Army discipline does not tolerate complaints. Army means “SHUT UP AND FOLLOW”. We once tried to meet the higher authorities and they came to our college also. But only to say “…Law is an ass ‘and Lawyers are _._._’”. Yes literally. The higher authorities of Indian Army told the college authorities to throw away any one who is speaking against the authority. (And I thought we are living in India not Afghanistan and the college we are studying is managed by Indian army, not Taliban. Oops!)

We had problem with the quality of mess food. SHUT UP.                                                                         Girls wanted to wear their choice dress. SHUT UP.                                                                                    We wanted to have better sports equipments. SHUT UP.                                                                            We wanted professors for our subjects. SHUT UP.                                                                                     We wanted to elect our Student Representative. HOW DARE YOU?                                                            (Our student representative was elected by college authorities. True Democracy).

Well that was our college. And it is going to remain same (for a long time at least). Things may get better in future. How funny is it that on one hand our college is managed by Indian army but if you go to a Professor (most of them, sic) and say “Bhagwan Bhindrawala Amar Rahe”, you will get full marks in internals as well as full attendance. But if you dare speak ‘Hail Operation Blue Star’, you will for sure get zero in internals as well as external. (Oh! you will not be even allowed to give externals because of your low attendance). But that is defence administration which is obviously an exception in democracy. But what about civil administration – The Democracy, yes democracy, where citizens are masters and government is servant, where administration must always be managed by civilian authorities, where horses are meant to be inside stable and army inside barracks – what is happening in that democracy – which is supposedly the biggest in the world. Where the political parties are making millions and the person (Comptroller and Auditor General) who is exposing them is questioned of his integrity. Where a member of ruling political party even alleges that CAG of India has links with major opposition party? Where he is called to Public Accounts Committee and interrogated as if he was a criminal and MPs were Judges? Was Kasab also interrogated so harshly? Oh, he spat on the judge. (I heard it through media reports, please don’t charge me with contempt).

And now this Aseem Trivedi episode. I thought we only have one dictator in India (and that too in the eastern part of our country), but ah! Great we have one more in the form of Maharashtra Government. The same Maharashtra Government which has many ministers and bureaucrats involved in Adarsh scam – the army officers too. But no, they are patriots. Aseem Trivedi is traitor. The same Maharashtra Government which has leased out its governance function to a self styled Marathi godman (who has Bihari ancestors) and threatens all Biharis to flee Mumbai. He is not seditious. Why will he be? He is a true patriot like our ex-Telecom minister (who has given so much to our exchequer).

What has Trivedi done? Painted parliament as national toilet. Do you really disagree? Or you only are scared of the government and its torture agencies. We heard the famous dialogue from the movie Paan Singh Tomar, and everyone clapped, yes of course the people sitting in Parliament are dacoits. They have made this sacred place a general class toilet of Indian railway. Throw them out and you will get a temple/mosque/church or any other thing you want (I want a madhushala; anyways). The people who dare to say these things are being put behind the bars (reminds me of my college days – ‘SHUT UP’). Were we clapping for democracy or military junta in India at the time Pt. Nehru was uttering “At the stroke of the midnight when the world sleeps, India will awake for rise and freedom…”. Even Pandit ji would have been highly disappointed seeing this state of the country he fought the independence for. Once Atal Bihari Vajpayee gave severe blows to the Pandit ji’s policies in the parliament through his spear edged words. Later at a dinner hosted at the President House, Vajpayee was trying to hide himself at the back benches. Pandit ji caught him by his hand and brought him in front of media. He thanked him for his enlightening comments and told media that one day this young man shall be this country’s Prime Minister. Such was the respect for Freedom of Speech in the eyes of Pt Nehru. But this same  government, 50 yrs down the incident, at the same venue, on the same occasion, did not even put up chairs for the opposition at the dinner. The whole opposition was made to sit somewhere at back benches (still reminds me of college).

Or you are disappointed that Trivedi painted the National Emblem with Wolves. Now let me tell you the significance of Ashoka’s emblem that has been adopted as the National Emblem by the Government of India. It symbolizes Power, Courage and Confidence. But what if the power and courage is now being used by few peoples (representing the Government) against India and the Indians. The Lions, which signify that Rule of Law has to be enforced in all directions, have now become Wolves, who actually try to kill the rule of law and socio-economic justice. Is it not the right of us Indians to understand this and make efforts to destroy wolves and restore the Lions? Is it not our duty to eliminate the corrupt  who are actually prevailing in India. On one hand we have all the corrupt and tainted ministers out of jail and no one is saying them anything. CBI is openly being used to save them. The investigating agencies are moving slow against them (apparently to delay the proceedings) – Bhrastameva Jayate, and on the other hand we have common man being sent to jail for telling the truth – Satyameva Jayate.

Whose Jayate do you want? Bhrast or Satya.

IT’S TIME FOR HINDU ‘ALIYAH’

The Hindu : Opinion / Lead : A growing intolerance.

Rinkle Kumari aka Faryal Shah

Recently I came through a very interesting article on The Hindu Opinion/Lead page: A GROWING INTOLERANCE. Click Here to read

A very interesting fact highlighted by Ms Anita Joshua was that Jinnah, although being a Shia muslim, his state funeral was conducted through Sunni traditions. The country which does not have respect for its  “Father of the Nation” can never respect the minorities’ cultural and traditional beliefs. Its time Indian government must either start giving permanent visas to all the Hindus living in Pakistan (like Israel’s Law of Return which gives right to all the Jews anywhere in the world to return to Israel and gain citizenship) or take necessary measures for their safety through diplomatic process (which of course is not going to be successful).

Ms Joshua even highlighted the plight of not only the Hindus but also the Shia muslims and other minority sects of muslims in Pakistan. Even the Christians are not spared. Christians are so scared that they have started adopting Muslim names to hide their identities.Hindu girls are openly kidnapped, converted and then married off. Hindu community which are somewhat better than the Shia and Christians in terms of money and status (many of them are in civil services) are openly extorted of their cash and even shot dead.

However there is one problem in the implementation of Indian version of ‘Law of Return’ – India is a secular country and secularism does not favour any religion. If law is framed to bring back Hindus from Pakistan, the arguments will be put forward by many in the country citing it as anti-secular measure. On one hand we opened our borders for the Bangladeshis to come in during late 1960s, at the time when they were persecuted by the then Pakistan Government, but still we have locked doors for the Hindus of Pakistan who are meeting the same fate. And no one is even talking about it. On one hand thousands of families have managed to flee Pakistan and are staying in India amidst fear of being forcibly made to return to Pakistan by Indian authorities, if identified; and on the other hand we have one community destroying peace in various parts of the country and even damaging the Martyr’s memorial in Mumbai in support of their community members from Bay of Bengal. And guess they never have the fear of being sent back to their own country because most of them are recognised voters!

MYTH, MYSTERY, COMMAND, RESPECT AND FEAR

It started from the second year of my college life. Everything was going fine, good friends, books, marks and teachers, until i fell in love with a cute, charming, sweet, and attractive deep eyed girl named “xyz”. It took me few weeks to finally drew up all the courage in the world to propose her. And guess what she accepted. Life had never been so beautiful. From cafe to class, from computer lab to library, from movies to dinners, from studies to bunks, from cell phones to chats, she was always there with me. But one black Wednesday i found out she was cheating on me, and not only me she was cheating one other guy also. I was broken, torn, cheated, humiliated and cast off. I decided to take revenge. I took a pistol and fired at her. She died instantaneously. My revenge didn’t end here. I vowed to kill each and every girl named “xyz”. Why only “xyz”, I swear to kill every women in this world. I became a NAXALITE. Yes this is what naxalism says and this is what in true sense is naxal ideology.

Nowadays from morning to evening, all I could see and think of is books. From history to geography, from Pratiyogita Darpan to Chronicle, from Economics to International Affairs, from Lokpal to Sri Lankan Human Rights sanction; my dad could very well sense my condition and so he planned a trip for my refreshment, and guess what next day I was in Saranda, the forest of 700 hills, that’s where it got its name from – a forest that is said to be the largest in Asia. Now this is the way to lessen the mental strain of your son – bring him to place with physical strains. What else can you expect from your policeman father – a trip to Mcleodganj. (I remember accompanying my dad to City Park for evening walks only to find him shouting at the love birds hiding themselves behind the bushes – policemen can never understand testosterones and estrogens ).

The Saranda Forest

Saranda is perhaps the most beautiful forest I have ever seen, (however I have seen only couple of National Parks), but this one for sure is the place to remember. There are hills, hills and hills, with dense forest cover. Sometimes you are at the height to 13000 ft, other minute you are down hundred feet below the sea level (iron mines). There are several civilizations residing in these dense forests, some of them are educated and speak hindi too. Even tourism has started its wings here. A very good sign indeed.  A year before one cannot even think of wandering around this place. There were no roads, no transport, no electricity, no schools and no hospital. Perhaps the blame can be put on the government of the state from 1947-1960. However after 1960’s the blame is only on the Mukherjees, Banerjees, Sanyals, Basus, Majumdars etc. These people with their so called revolutionary ideas never let the government do development works in these areas so that they can fool the local poor and uneducated people about the indifferent attitude of the government towards their welfare. Whenever a contractor took up a contract to build roads, they killed him, only to show the poor tribals that government is not interested in building roads in their village, whenever government tried to set up schools and hospitals, they blew up the building only to isolate the local inhabitants from the government’s welfare plans. From past 50 years these propagators of Mao Tse Tung have never let government develop railways and electricity in these areas. They haven’t even let these local inhabitants to study science, history and geography, instead at the age they should be studying mathematical tables, they were made to study Karl Marx, Communism, romances of bloody revolution, overthrow of democratic government and establishment of communist (so called people’s) government. At the time they should be taught to look forward to modern scientific era, they were taught of atrocities committed by security forces during British era. And guess they succeeded in making these tribals believe their side of story. They now believe that government is their enemy which does nothing for their benefit and these people wearing khaki kurtas, western educated, with huge bank balances, going for leave only during navratris are their true friends.

On our way to Saranda

Saranda Forest shares the area with Odisha and Chhattisgarh, so one moment we were in Jharkhand and the other moment we were having our tea in an Odisha government guest house. In the evening we went to see the Sunset point just behind our guest house in Kiru Buru (Chaibasa, Jharkhand) and the next day in Odisha to see Sunrise point. However this was not the real reason (don’t tell my dad) why I was here. A year before this was the place feared most by the security forces. Conquering Saranda had remained a dream for British, a failed mission for Indira Gandhi’s army and unsuccessful operation for CRPF. But this time they have decided to not let it go. Somewhere in Ranchi, inside an air-conditioned hall, the honchos of Jharkhand, Odisha and Chhattisgarh Police were busy scratching their heads to make a fool proof plan. The BSF, CRPF and ITBP officers were busy appropriating the arsenal. Supporting them were some of the unnamed Indian army Infantry officers (expert in jungle warfare). So the plan ready – surround the Forest from Odisha and Jharkhand side and push the naxalites deep inside Chhattisgarh where thousands of security forces would be already waiting for them. The BSF brought its artillery, Indian Air Force its Dhruva. After ten days of continuous fighting, the security forces now claim to have broken the spine of the naxals. And indeed, visit saranda and you can see their claim to be justified. The roads say the half of story, we have a guest house deep inside the forest, and yo the electricity too. Nothing was there last year. The ideal villages have been developed for the inhabitants where no one is allowed to go without permission (tribals prefer to remain aloof). There they have continuous water supply through a nearby river, which has been made to flow in a reservoir by the security forces. The state transport buses can be seen running around and a first class metalled road.

Near the Guest House

But the question still remains in my mind, how have the security forces been able to complete the saranda operation and how effectively are they holding the regained territories? The Police and the paramilitary forces have no doubt done a commendable job and they are still having high morals. Speaking to Asst Sub Inspector, Kiru Buru, Mr Paswan, about the difficulties faced by the police and paramilitaries, he said laughingly, “chhup ke bomb laga ke bhaag jaate hain, aamne saamne lade to hum 20 bhi 200 ko sambhal lenge” (they secretly install the land mines and run away, if they dare to fight face to face, only 20 of us will be enough for their 200). According to a report published by Ministry of Home affairs, around 200 -250 Indian Army personnel are involved in training the naxals. Many of them are retired officers. They train the naxals in warfare, whereas we train our policemen in criminal laws and forensics. They train the naxals in planting IEDs whereas we train the policemen for bandobast duties. And then their arsenals. They have weapons from China procured through NISCM (Naga Group) and we have the famous .303 rifles of World War II left by British army. However it is good to see that our police top brass have of late realized the need to train and equip our forces to fight these red terrorists neck to neck. With police and CRPF camps being set up deep inside the jungles, the hold of the naxalites are getting lose day by day. The places where naxals used to roam freely are now dared by CRPF’s LRPs (Long Range Penetration Patrols). The CISF units have been placed in control of the mining areas where naxals used to supervise mining through their own trusted men. Now we have SAIL and TATAs doing the job. There is a TATA hospital and a Kendriya Vidyalaya (Government school) as deep as in Kiru Biru, and trust me you can see children with school bags – the tribal children. Government is also helping the tribal youths take up employment. Recently Indian Air Force released 5000 vacancies through open recruitment especially for the naxalites affected districts of Jharkhand and Odisha.

The success of police force and the fear that they have created in the hearts of naxalites is evident from the fact that almost all the naxal sympathizers and journalists are in single voice demanding the stoppage of Operation Green Hunt. No other single operation has created so much fear as this one. Under this operation, police forces use the technique of Long Range Penetration Patrols and Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols which is no doubt vulnerable to skirmishes. And this is exactly what they look for. LRP – Reconnaissance are a group of 3-4 men who function deep behind the enemy lines. They act as pathfinders and generally do not engage with the enemy. Next comes the LRP – Penetration which consists of 30-40 men including sniper, RPG, medic, etc. They are able to remain and determined to move as much inside the enemy lines as possible and willing enough to get into encounters. Now at this point the world becomes the chessboard where every move is preceded with a move to counter the opponent’s third move. The offices are loaded with contour maps and toposheets with experts splitting their midnight coffees over them. The open space inside the forest is located where an outpost can be established. And the outposts are never established before a network of few other outposts are set up to make up a spider web. There have been many instances where naxalites were fooled by the presence of single CRPF outpost with 4-6 men and they thought it as their Sunday. But as soon as they opened fire on the post, they received fire from various directions. Yes the WAR IS POLITICS WITH BLOOD.

The most important drawback of the anti-naxal operations is the lack of intelligence. However the District Superintendents have been provided with sufficient funds to maintain an effective espionage system, but no one is ready to volunteer to spy for police, even for a big price. The reason, if they are caught, their whole family is brutally given death sentence by Naxalites’ Kangaroo courts. On the other hand, Naxals have an effective spy system. Every tea-stall walla, every rickshaw wallah, every auto driver, and every dhaba walla (motel owner) are naxal’s spy. They keep an eye on every CRPF camp, every Police stations and report any movement of the forces. Whenever the forces move out in numbers, they sound an alarm to their masters. The police force has not only to develop an effective intelligence network but also a counter intelligence network. They have not only to collect the data about naxals next step but also about their intelligence agency’s payrolls. Speaking to Superintendent of Police, Chaibasa, Mr Srinivas Arun Kumar regarding spy network, said, “In recent months we have been able to develop a better spy network but the biggest problem is that many of them work for both the sides… now we have decided to camouflage our own men into their ranks. This is the riskiest job in the world but we do not have alternatives. We already have many state police jawans in their ranks. This is risky, very risky. But also it is a time tested historical idea tried by almost all the rulers of all the ages. THE NATURE OF POLITICS NEVER CHANGES”.

Gone are the days when you used to fight the wars with full principles and ideologies, when you used to put down your arms as soon as sun settles down. Here you have to play dirty. Now this is what the Special Forces of the State Police do. This is what “Greyhounds” did for the Andhra Police and this is what “Jaguars” are inclined to do for Jharkhand. Their training camps are not situated at any peace place but deep inside the maoists’ dens. They are trained inside the jungles in jungle warfare. You have to raise a force which is very much ANGRY, DETERMINED, MANIPULATIVE, AMORAL, INTELLIGENT, OBSESSED, PATRIOTIC AND RUTHLESS. ‘They kill one you kill four’ is the principle here. ‘Never look back you’re definitely being followed’ is the rule here. Remember ‘Anti Land Mine Vehicle is the most unsafe against the Land Mines’. ‘Do not drink water from fresh water sources, they are poisoned’. ‘Do not enjoy the singing birds, they are not birds’. And the most important ‘DO NOT USE THE SAME ROUTE TWICE’.

Not only the forces but even the officers have to be cunning, clever, calculating and crooked. Say bye to the days when rulers were known by their virtues and rule of laws. This is the day of arousing myth and mysteries in your favour. The myth – ‘Greyhounds are cannibals’, the mystery – ‘from where are these human bones coming from, what happened to their flesh’, the command – ‘gaurding an outpost deep inside the forest surrounded by naxals’, respect – ‘bringing back home your injured friend’ and fear – ‘policemen are bad people’. Yes Indeed they are. In these conditions you cannot expect them to be Gandhi.
