  1. We have placed this because it was difficult for us to brush it aside! We could not even say that the statements made were over rated or far from truth!

  2. বিশ্বায়নের গান
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।
    গরীবদুখীর হরিমটর,
    ধনীর হাতে মেওয়া।

    একশো পঁচিশ কোটি টাকার
    উপগ্রহ ছাই।
    গরিব মানুষ ভুখায় মরে,
    পেটের ভাত নাই।
    ঋণের জালে দেউলিয়া দেশ,
    ভূতের বোঝা বওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    দ্রব্যমূল্য আকাশছোঁয়া,
    চাল-ডাল-তেল সোনা।
    আনাজপাতির বাজার আগুন,
    অসাধ্য হয় কেনা।
    ভোট বাজারে ঝান্ডা নেড়ে
    মিছেই দাবিদাওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    দেশের কৃষি ধ্বংস করে
    বিলিতি বীজ-সার।
    দেনার দায়ে গাঁয়ে-গাঁয়ে
    চাষির হাহাকার।
    সোনার ফসল ফলাতে চেয়ে
    বিষের জ্বালা পাওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    বাড়ছে বেকার, ছাঁটাই, লে-অফ,
    কারখানাতে তালা।
    মুক্ত বাজার অর্থনীতির
    চৌষট্টি কলা।
    উদার অর্থনীতির সুরে
    পুঁজির গুণ গাওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    সত্তর হাজার কোটি টাকার
    কালমাদির খেলা।
    টু-জি টেলিকম হরেকরকম
    দুর্নীতির মেলা।
    তবু দেশের মাথা মন্ত্রী-নেতা
    তুলসীপাতা ধোওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    মজুর কাঁদে ‘সেজ’-এর ফাঁদে,
    পুঁজিপতির হাসি।
    ভিটেমাটি হারিয়ে বেঘর
    গরীব আদিবাসী।
    কর্পোরেটের ভেট চড়াতে
    জমির দখল নেওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    উন্নয়নের ভাঁড়ার শূন্য,
    অস্ত্র আমদানি।
    শিক্ষা-স্বাস্থ্যে কানাকড়ি,
    যুদ্ধে বারো আনি।
    হাসপাতালের বেহাল দশা
    যমযাতনা সওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    পাঁচশো কোটির প্রাসাদ গড়ে
    মুকেশ আম্বানি।
    মাও-দমনে ছ’শো কোটির
    ফৌজি কোম্পানি।
    গ্রীন হান্টের নামে পুঁজির
    লুটেপুটে খাওয়া।
    লাগলো দেশে বিশ্বায়নের হাওয়া।

    A Mahatma Announces Fast unto Death

    Anna Hazare has given an ultimatum to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to enact a stringent anti-corruption law – the people’s“Jan Lokpal Bill”!

    Jail to the corrupt a must! We have been betrayed by those that are leading us!

    When & Where?
    From 5th April at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

    Who is Anna Hazare?
    A soldier, lone survivor in his unit in1965 Indo-Pak war, Anna dedicated his life to the well-being of society. A bachelor, an ascetic, he has no possessions, no bank balance and lives in a temple. He is a living Mahatma Gandhi!

    In Maharashtra , Anna has single handedly transformed barren and dry regions into green and food surplus areas. He has fasted unto death on several earlier occasions. He forced the Maharashtra government to dismiss the corrupt - 6 ministers and 400 officers. Due to his fast, the govt enacted the Maharashtra RTI Act. In 2006, when government of India tried to amend the Central RTI Act, he again went on an indefinite fast and forced the Indian government not to amend RTI Act.

    Leaders, organizations and the common man from across India will be with him. This is a do or die moment – let us make it happen!

    Across India, join Swami Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravishankar, Swami Agnivesh, Arch Bishop Vincent Concessao, Mahmood A Madani,Kiran Bedi, J M Lyngdoh, Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal, Mufti Shamoom Qasmi, Mallika Sarabhai, Arun Bhatia, Sunita Godara, AllIndia Bank Employees Federation, PAN IIT Alumni Association, Common Cause and many other prominent organizations and leaders participatd as India comes out on the streets! 100+ CITIES WILL RALLY BEHIND ANNA!

    This is a defining moment for India that can give our children a better future! Let us unite and standby him! Thousands will be there to support him. Will you be there?

    Anna’s appeal to the people:
    ·When I sit on fast from 5 April, I urge my fellow countrymen to join me in fasting for one, two, three or whatever number of days you can comfortably fast.
    ·Along with fast, please pray to God (whoever you believe in) for better and corruption free India . Collective prayers from all the people of India would definitely have a huge impact.
    ·Write an impassioned plea to our Prime Minister that we look upon him to pass “Jan Lokpal Bill”, else we will be compelled not to vote for his party in next elections.
    ·Remain calm and peaceful and develop the courage to go to jail, if required, in this next freedom movement.
    ·If possible, come and stay with Anna at Jantar Mantar for a few days from April 5th.

    (This movement is neither affiliated nor aligned to any political party)

  5. Salient features of Jan Lokpal Bill

    Drafted by Justice Santosh Hegde, Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal, this Bill has been refined on the basis of feedback received from public on website and after series of public consultations. It has also been vetted by and is supported by Shanti Bhushan, J M Lyngdoh, Kiran Bedi, Anna Hazare etc. It was sent to the PM and all CMs on 1st December. However, there is no response.


    1.An institution called LOKPAL at the centre and LOKAYUKTA in each state will be set up
    2.Like Supreme Court and Election Commission, they will be completely independent of the governments. No minister or bureaucrat will be able to influence their investigations.
    3.Cases against corrupt people will not linger on for years anymore: Investigations in any case will have to be completed in one year. Trial should be completed in next one year so that the corrupt politician, officer or judge is sent to jail within two years.
    4.The loss that a corrupt person caused to the government will be recovered at the time of conviction.
    5.How will it help a common citizen: If any work of any citizen is not done in prescribed time in any government office, Lokpal will impose financial penalty on guilty officers, which will be given as compensation to the complainant.
    6.So, you could approach Lokpal if your ration card or passport or voter card is not being made or if police is not registering your case or any other work is not being done in prescribed time. Lokpal will have to get it done in a month’s time. You could also report any case of corruption to Lokpal, like ration being siphoned off, poor quality roads been constructed or panchayat funds being siphoned off. Lokpal will have to complete its investigations in a year, trial will be over in next one year and the guilty will go to jail within two years.
    7.But won’t the government appoint corrupt and weak people as Lokpal members? That won’t be possible because its members will be selected by judges, citizens and constitutional authorities and not by politicians, through a completely transparent and participatory process.
    8.What if some officer in Lokpal becomes corrupt? The entire functioning of Lokpal/Lokayukta will be completely transparent. Any complaint against any office of Lokpal shall be investigated and the officer dismissed within two months.
    9.What will happen to existing anti-corruption agencies? CVC, departmental vigilance and anti-corruption branch of CBI will be merged into Lokpal. Lokpal will have complete powers and machinery to independently investigate and prosecute any officer, judge or politician.

  6. The Yogi Guru Baba Ramdev, who has millons of followers all over the world, will also be going on fast for the Govt to formulate ways and means to stop corruption and bring back the Money stashed away in Swiss Banks.

    Strangely the UPA govt is trying its best to stop Baba from starting his fast! Instead why does it not take proactive measures to stop corruption!?

    Corruption and Congress has almost become synonymous!

    Thank God they have people like Mr A. K. Anthony to compensate for much of the rest!

    We fully support this cause and method of protest of Baba Ramdev and do not mind any body supporting him, even if they are RSS or BJP or any one else!


  8. We are very happy to learn from News Times TV that The Hon. Supreme Court of India has sent a notice to the Commisssioner of Police of New Dehli and the Home Secretary to let the Court know within 2 weeks - Why was it necessary to evict Baba Ramdev in the middle of the night with so much force from Ramlila Ground?

  9. Yesterday, Baba Ramdev decleared that he would train a force 11000 strong to combat the Govt forces on Ramleela grounds in future!

    If he really does what he said he would do, then he will loose his right to stand up to the cause of stopping corruption and bringing back Black Money from Swiss Banks!

    There would be no difference between him and the UPA Govt. We will not be able to support him any longer.

    However Anna Hazare is going strong with his movement and we have all faith in him.

  10. We express our grief on the death of Swami Nigamanda at Haridwar. He was fasting for the cause of keeping River Ganga Clean.

    We are ashamed that we did not take any notice of Swami Nigamananda's quiet satyagraha while our attention was focused on more famous people's movements.

    This callousness on our part shows that we only take notice of any movement when it involvs some celebrity and gets full media attention.
