तुम हो तो जिन्दगी है


प्रवीण कुमार शर्मा

केवल बस तुम हो तो लगता है
जिन्दगी है, जिन्दगी हसीन है
तुम न हो तो कुछ भी नही है
जिन्दगी नही है, उदास जिन्दगी है

कितनी ही बातें अनकही है अब तक
कितनी ही रातें अकेली है, अब तक

क्या गुनाह है किसी को चाहना
क्या गुनाह है, तुम्ही को चाहाना

कैसे दिखा पाऊगा दिल को
कैसे बता पाऊगा तुमको

तुम ही जिंदगी हो
तुम ही हर ख़ुशी हो

हर वक्त है जिसकी कमी
होंठों की कॅंप-कॅंपी, आखों की नमी

तुम्हारी तस्वीर बोलती है मुझसें
इतना न देखा करो तुम

उफ अब करू, तो क्या करू

ना सहा जाता है
ना कहा जाता है
यें जो प्यार है हर पल बढ़ता है, बढ़ रहा है

कैसे बताऊ तुम्हें
कैसे समझाऊ तुम्हें
अब तुम्हारे बिन हर लम्हा खटता हैं, खटकता है

कुछ करो ना
तुम ही जिन्दगी हो
जीने की वजह भी तुम ही हो

फूलों की खुशबू , तितली के रंग
चेहरे की ख़ुशी,  तुम ही हों
सुना तुमने, सुना तुमने

अब चुप रहो ना
कुछ कहो ना, कुछ कहो ना
तुम ही हो, तुम हो ना
तुम हो तो जिन्दगी है

The golf course will soon in Dwarka

There is good news for sports lovers and particularly for golf players because
Very soon, you will be able to tee off in a golf course of international standards in Delhi, and that too by paying a very nominal fee. The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is coming up with a ‘state-of-the-art’ 18-hole golf course spread over an area of 173 acres in Dwarka — the biggest ever by the agency.

“DDA is the first to bring this elite sport to the doorstep of the common man,” said Neemo Dhar, DDA spokesperson. “Our golf courses allow ‘pay and play’, which brings the sport to the common man. The pattern is being replicated in our upcoming golf courses,” she said.

Apart from the gold driving range, the complex will house a training centre, club house, swimming pool and gymnasiums of international standards. The golf course will come up at Dwarka Sector 24, next to the proposed diplomatic enclave and international convention centre planned by the DDA. The golf course will also be very close to the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

DDA NEGLECTING THE DWARKA SUB-CITY ?

Subject: Grievance against DDA NEGLECTING THE DWARKA SUB-CITY ?
Refer: Rather than words PICTURES SPEAKS of How DDA Negelected Dwarka https://picasaweb.google.com/DwarkaForum/DwarkaDDAsMasterPlanFAILURE

Sir,

We would like to bring to your kind attention, we have been HIGHLIGHTING various deficiencies of DDA.

This particular case is of TOTAL NEGLIGENCE by DDA towards Dwarka. What talked of in documents and off records discussion. Dwarka Sub-City is DREAM Project and called Master Plan Sub City. Where as in reality there is ZERO Implementations of Master Plan provisions. You may check yourself on the Master Plan 2021 documents, DDA other documents related to Dwarka and latest Zonal Plan K-II.

DDA currently interested only in INVENTING NEW Projects else where as existing announced one or budged are not implemented. Take the case of PRE HABITATION of Dwarka project:

Not a single Community centre within Sectors of Dwarka we have, what DDA had build CC on Villages around Dwarka.

Since there were many issues that affects over 6 lakh residents, over 300 CGHS Apartments and over 55 DDA Pocket RWA's in Dwarka Sub-City along with Commercial and Institutional representatives.

Some of the areas where we found DDA NEGLECTING DWARKA are as follows:

Master Plan of Dwarka: 
This remain only as we call it there are many MASTERs in DDA but no Planners seems.
Planning and Implementation failures.
Pre habitation facilities lacking:

i. No Vegetable/Fruits Markets
ii. Only few Milk Diary booths such as Mother Diaries
iii. No Community Halls within Sectors
iv. No District Centre
v. No Recreation Centre or Cinema Halls etc
vi. No Clubs
vii. The Service Sector 20 is converted to Commercial use and NO SERVICE related usage till date allotted.

No tolerance Zone- Dwarka.
No one actually know what is this MEANING of ZERO TOLERANCE as no document is available.
There is no enforcement on violation to commercial encroachment in markets
The commercial building have extended rooftops and other areas without due approval causing huge REVENUE loss to DDA and risking public.

Parking Issues:
The ECS (Equal Car Space per 100 Sq Mtr)– Parking are not available in LSC , Sector markets and Institutional areas.
Multi Level parking project have not implemented for Sector 6/10, 4/5/11/12 markets
The LSC Private buildings reserved basement parking are not open to public

Water Supply:
The DDA and DJB collected an average of Rs. 10 lakh per CGHS Society and Equal from DDA Pockets. However the basic supply of Drinking water not provided by DDA till date as its on loggerhead with DJB. Dwarkites don't get SAFE DRINKING WATER even a liter per person per day.
98% of Dwarkites drinking toxic ground water with over 3000 TDS level. Without providing safe water to existing population DDA add on new housing projects.

Incomplete Projects:
Bharat Vandana Park- No sign of implementation- Only Meetings no outcomes.
Approval of 750 Bed hospital building plan pending with DDA
Uncompleted Roads connecting various parts especially sector 24,25,26 and Dwarka-Palam Vihar Expressway.

DDA Pockets pathetic condition:
Almost all the DDA Pockets are in most DANGEROUS situation where most of the ceiling and balconies are falling apart.
The facility provided to these pockets are minimal, while you are adding new complex and ignoring the existing one to provide BASIC Amenities.

Completion cum Pre occupancy certificate issues of Cooperative Group Housing Society:
DDA board should consider one time moratorium to all CGHS who have completed necessary FIRE clearance for CC/POC. DDA is loosing out revenue on Freehold amount due to this complex CC/POC.
The DDA to open office in Dwarka to enable FREE HOLD facilitation Desk

Maintenance of Master Plan Sub-City:
-The Dwarka boast of wide roads and Service lanes, Drains,Pedestrian paths. These are not maintained properly and timely.
-The parks are not developed in mot of the sector either due to water supply or power supply or short of funds. The Malis on pay roll only available to Horticulture office what ever work is done is through contractor.
-The pedestrian paths are not designed as per latest UTTIPEC guidelines
-The maintenance of DDA Pocket Flats is pathetic condition especially exteriors & balconies falling.

I hope you will check the above photographs and numerous other photographs on internet posted evident of DDA's Negligence towards Dwarka.

https://picasaweb.google.com/DwarkaForum/DwarkaDDAsMasterPlanFAILURE

If you require more evidence and Pictures, we would be happy to send the same.

You name any of the area or service from above list, where DDA have NOT NEGLECTED DWARKA ? DDA promise many things, including in the budget but NOT DELIVER, the RECORDS speaks for itself. . All the work of Dwarka come to stand still barring the salary of its staffs.

Yours sincerely,

Annual Venkateshwar Summit focuses on India and UK as an ISA activity

The ` Annual Venkateshwar India-UK Summit’ was organized by Sri VIS, Sector-18, Dwarka in association with the Childreach International on January 21, 2012. The summit was an extension of the British Council’s International School Award (ISA) project, developing the pupils’ awareness of the cultures of other countries, while promoting an understanding of their own. Apart from the majestic Annual Venkateshwar Summit Rolling Trophy for the winning team’s school, the top three teams were to be awarded cash prizes of Rs 3000, Rs 2000 and Rs 1000 respectively along with individual trophies and certificates.

The summit was a reminder to the future leaders that every incident in history teaches us to take better care of the future, while planning for the future. The colonial past has left different legacies. The summit coincided with the republic day related activities of the month. The guests for the day were Ms Amita Sharma, the Manager Programs and Mr Vishesh Shukla from the Childreach International India. Childreach International India is a development organization that empowers children across India to achieve their right to education, healthcare, protection and prepares them to grow up as sensitized and responsible leaders of tomorrow.

22 teams from prominent schools from Delhi participated in the event. A written screening preliminary round was held along with some non-evaluative brainstorming activities for sensitizing the budding leaders such as a social responsibility test and a graffiti writing/wall magazine activity on why study English, what UK offers to us, what India can offer to the world.

The six best teams from different schools were t shortlisted after a tie breaker round for the sixth spot, which added the Modern convent team to the famous five - Sri VIS Sector -18, Dwarka, Venkateshwar Global School Sector- 13, Rohini, Loreto Convent Delhi Cantt., VIS Sector -10 Dwarka and IPIS Sector -10 Dwarka .

The final quiz had five rounds. The first two rounds- `Guess me Right’ and `Audio round’ ’ saw last four teams being selected. They were Loreto Convent, Modern Convent, VGS and Sri VIS teams. The ‘Check your Memory’ round led to elimination of the Loreto team.

The brain churning final `Rapid Fire Round’ decided the final winner. Sri Venkateshwar International School team members Aryan Gupta and Pranav Suri brought laurels and the rolling trophy to their school as they finished with 88 points. The First Runners up with 78 points were Vagisha Malhotra and Hardik Goel from the Venkateshwar Global School , while the Second Runners up were Harsh Kumar and Divanshi Khurana from the Modern Convent School with 47 points.

In the non-evaluative, yet socially stimulating and sensitizing activities organized by the Childreach International, graffiti written for the wall magazine by students from Loreto Convent and NK Bagrodia School were found to be highly commendable and were awarded medals.

A Social Responsibility Test – to awaken the spirit of social service and sensitivity saw the children giving situational responses in a mature and responsible manner, such as if their mother was sick and they were alone, all of them said that they will administer the first- aid, call a doctor and family members and take charge till others arrived. To the question, what would you do if you see a child begging or working in a roadside eatery, majority said that they will feel bad and many added that they will ask their parents to give money and clothes and a few also added that they will try to have the child put in a school with help from adults. To the question on garbage disposal, they had the right responses. It seems that society will see much improvement through these social messiahs.


GOONJ organized Collection camp in Dwarka


29th January,2012. An annual Campaign “RAHAT-WINTER” organized by GOONJ near Brahma Apartments Plot No. 7, Sector-7, Dwarka, N. Delhi.

Panic and Rumors are Contagious

Dr KK Aggarwal
Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee
President, Heart Care Foundation of India 


Both rumors and panic reactions are contagious. It just takes one percent of the population to create rumors. Most rumors are not facts. The best way to know whether it’s a rumor or not, is to ask, “Who told you”. The answer invariably will be ‘someone’. Unless somebody has heard it from the horses’ mouth do not believe it. It is a human tendency to add to what one has heard from someone.

Rumors are scientific and are based on the 100th Monkey Phenomenon. Once the target population is sensitized, the rumor spreads like wild fire. In a gathering of 1000 people only 10 persons are required to spread the rumor, and the resultant panic. In a war-like situation, it is easy to spread rumors as the public is sensitized for the same and living in an unknown fear.


Panic attacks are an unexplained and unprovoked fight or flight response. The body suddenly has the physical reaction of a life-threatening situation. Panic attack is usually mistaken (by the sufferer) as a heart attack and can be very frightening. Anxiety can sometimes lead to panic attacks therefore a lot of people with anxiety disorder tend to unfortunately develop panic attacks.

It is an emotion most people experience when they feel they are in danger. The heart rate increases, the muscles tense up, one get a rush of adrenaline and one is ready to fight for the life. This is called the “Fight or Flight” reaction and it gives one the extra strength needed to overcome or escape a dangerous situation.

On the other hand, anxiety disorder is when you have the symptoms but the reason for feeling the “Fight or Flight” reaction is unclear.
A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming fear that comes without warning and without any obvious reason. It is far more intense than the feeling of being ‘stressed out’ that most people experience. Symptoms of a panic attack include:

*Racing heartbeat
*Difficulty in breathing, feeling as though you ‘can’t get enough air’
*Terror that is almost paralyzing
*Trembling, sweating, shaking
*Choking, chest pains
*Hot flashes or sudden chills
*Tingling in fingers or toes (‘pins and needles’).
*Fear that you’re going to go crazy or are about to die

In addition to the above symptoms, a panic attack is marked by the following conditions:
It occurs suddenly, without any proportion to the actual situation; often, in fact, it’s completely unrelated.
It passes off in a few minutes; the body cannot sustain the ‘fight or flight’ response for longer than that. However, repeated attacks can continue to recur for hours.

A panic attack is not dangerous, but it can be terrifying, largely because it feels ‘crazy’ and ‘out of control’. Panic disorder is frightening because of the panic attacks associated with it, and also because if often leads to other complications such as phobias, depression, substance abuse, medical complications, even suicide. Its effects can range from mild word or social impairment to a total inability to face the outside world.

Tips: Be prepared for emergencies. Always keep the first aid kit and a supply of goods and medicines for 1-2 weeks handy than to panic when they are needed.

How to get Aadhaar?
Registration/ Enrollment of Aadhaar Number/ UID Card

1. Documents Verification.
2. Biometric Scanning of Ten Fingerprints.

Advantages after getting an Aadhaar Number / UID

The Aadhaar will become the single source of identity verification. Once residents enrol, they can use the number multiple times – they would be spared the hassle of repeatedly providing supporting identity documents each time they wish to access services such as obtaining a bank account, passport, driving license,andso on.
By providing a clear proof of identity, the Aadhaar will also facilitate entry for poor and underprivileged residents into the formal banking system, and the opportunity to avail services provided by the government and the private sector. The Aadhaar will also give migrants mobility of identity.
It will also provide governments with accurate data on residents, enable direct benefit programs, and allow government departments to coordinate investments and share information.

Aadhaar Benefits

One Aadhaar = 1 beneficiary

Aadhaar is a unique number, and no resident can have a duplicate number since it is linked to their individual biometrics; thereby identifying fake and ghost identities which result in leakages today.

Portability:

Aadhaar is a universal number, and agencies and services can contact the central Unique Identification database from anywhere in the country to confirm a beneficiary’s identity.

Inclusion of those without any existing identity documents:

A problem in reaching benefits to poor and marginalized residents is that they often lack the identification documents they need to receive State benefits; the ‘Introducer‘ system which has been approved for data verification for the UIDAI will enable such residents to establish an identity.

Electronic benefit transfers

The UID-enabled-Bank-Account network will offer a secure and low cost platform to directly remit benefits to residents without the heavy costs associated today with benefit distribution.

Aadhaar-based authentication to confirm entitlement delivered to the beneficiary:

Tthe UIDAI will offer online authentication services for agencies who wish to validate a resident’s identity; this service will enable confirmation of the entitlement actually reaching the intended beneficiary.

Self-service puts residents in control:

Using Aadhaar as an authentication mechanism, residents should be able to access up-to-date information about their entitlements, demand services and redress their grievances directly from their mobile phone, kiosks or other means. In the case of self-service on the resident’s mobile, security is assured using two-factor authentication (i.e. by proving possession of the resident’s registered Mobile Number and knowledge of the resident’s Aadhaar PIN).

All roads lead to the Goan Derby


Salgaocar Sports Club’s fine run of six wins in seven matches will be under threat as they meet arch-rivals Dempo Sports Club in the Goa Derby at the Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, on Sunday (January 29).

Salgaocar's Tomba Singh in action
Dempo scored a solitary goal win in the opening game of the I-League and had looked the better team of the two since the start of the competition. However, Salgaocar have been the team to beat for the last seven matches and have collected more points than any other team in the competition.

“It will not be the same surely. They are a very good team and will, as usual, complicate things for us,” admitted Dempo Coach Mauricio Afonso.

Mauricio is expected to field a strong side and hand over starts to Nigerian strikers Ranty Martins and Koko Sakibo. Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Densil Theobad, who had two good games since his inclusion, will also start alongside Climax Lawrence in central midfield.

“This match becomes all the more crucial because Salgaocar too would be nursing hopes of moving on top. It’s imperative that we collect points and move further away from our challengers,” said Afonso, who is now deputising for Armando Colaco who remains hospitalised.

Except for Rowilson Rodrigues, Dempo will be at full-strength against their archrivals.

Salgaocar, the defending champions, have covered lost ground in the last seven matches, picking up an astonishing 19 points. Their only setback has been a draw against Mohun Bagan in Kolkata and Coach Karim Bencherifa will be more than keen to continue the fine run.

Dempo Sports Club are leading the league title race with 36 points and should they put it across Salgaocar, the former champions would have opened an incredible nine point gap at the top of the table. Salgaocar (28 points) too have everything to play for.

The need of a Guru

Swami Vivekananda

Every soul is destined to be perfect, and every being, in the end, will attain the state of perfection. Whatever we are now is the result of our acts and thoughts in the past; and whatever we shall be in the future will be the result of what we think end do now. But this, the shaping of our own destinies, does not preclude our receiving help from outside; nay, in the vast majority of cases such help is absolutely necessary. When it comes, the higher powers and possibilities of the soul are quickened, spiritual life is awakened, growth is animated, and man becomes holy and perfect in the end.

This quickening impulse cannot be derived from books. The soul can only receive impulses from another soul, and from nothing else. We may study books all our lives, we may become very intellectual, but in the end we find that we have not developed at all spiritually. It is not true that a high order of intellectual development always goes hand in hand with a proportionate development of the spiritual side in Man. In studying books we are sometimes deluded into thinking that thereby we are being spiritually helped; but if we analyse the effect of the study of books on ourselves, we shall find that at the utmost it is only our intellect that derives profit from such studies, and not our inner spirit. This inadequacy of books to quicken spiritual growth is the reason why, although almost every one of us can speak most wonderfully on spiritual matters, when it comes to action and the living of a truly spiritual life, we find ourselves so awfully deficient. To quicken the spirit, the impulse must come from another soul.

The person from whose soul such impulse comes is called the Guru ? the teacher; and the person to whose soul the impulse is conveyed is called the Shishya — the student. To convey such an impulse to any soul, in the first place, the soul from which it proceeds must possess the power of transmitting it, as it were, to another; and in the second place, the soul to which it is transmitted must be fit to receive it.

The seed must be a living seed, and the field must be ready ploughed; and when both these conditions are fulfilled, a wonderful growth of genuine religion takes place. "The true preacher of religion has to be of wonderful capabilities, and clever shall his hearer be" ? ; and when both of these are really wonderful and extraordinary, then will a splendid spiritual awakening result, and not otherwise. Such alone are the real teachers, and such alone are also the real students, the real aspirants. All others are only playing with spirituality. They have just a little curiosity awakened, just a little intellectual aspiration kindled in them, but are merely standing on the outward fringe of the horizon of religion. There is no doubt some value even in that, as it may in course of time result in the awakening of a real thirst for religion; and it is a mysterious law of nature that as soon as the field is ready, the seed must and does come; as soon as the soul earnestly desires to have religion, the transmitter of the religious force must and does appear to help that soul. When the power that attracts the light of religion in the receiving soul is full and strong, the power which answers to that attraction and sends in light does come as a matter of course.

There are, however, certain great dangers in the way. There is, for instance, the danger to the receiving soul of its mistaking momentary emotions for real religious yearning. We may study that in ourselves. Many a time in our lives, somebody dies whom we loved; we receive a blow; we feel that the world is slipping between our fingers, that we want something surer and higher, and that we must become religious. In a few days that wave of feeling has passed away, and we are left stranded just where we were before. We are all of us often mistaking such impulses for real thirst after religion; but as long as these momentary emotions are thus mistaken, that continuous, real craving of the soul for religion will not come, and we shall not find the true transmitter of spirituality into our nature.

So whenever we are tempted to complain of our search after the truth that we desire so much, proving vain, instead of so complaining, our first duty ought to be to look into our own souls and find whether the craving in the heart is real. Then in the vast majority of cases it would be discovered that we were not fit for receiving the truth, that there was no real thirst for spirituality. There are still greater dangers in regard to the transmitter, the Guru.There are many who, though immersed in ignorance, yet, in the pride of their hearts, fancy they know everything, and not only do not stop there, but offer to take others on their shoulders; and thus the blind leading the blind, both fall into the ditch.

"Fools dwelling in darkness, wise in their own conceit, and puffed up with vain knowledge, go round and round staggering to and fro, like blind men led by the blind." ? (Katha Up., I. ii. 5). The world is full of these. Every one wants to be a teacher, every beggar wants to make a gift of a million dollars! Just as these beggars are ridiculous, so are these teachers.

What Bothers Me Most?-Accidents[Death] on Roads

Vijay K. Saluja
 Senior Fellow-Institute of Social Sciences, New Delhi
  & Ex Chief Engineer[civil], New Delhi Municipal Council

There are many things, which are happening daily, in our city[Delhi], bother me. But, what pains me most is- Accidents/ Death, on the roads.

Not a day passes, without reading in the newspapers/watching on the TV, the heart-rending news/ghastly pictures of accidents  in our city. It is more a matter of anguish to observe at the way, deaths on the roads especially by Buses, were being reported.
Just imagine the anguish of all those hapless persons involved in these accidents-some loosing their limbs and hospitalisation/immobilization for months. For some very unlucky ones-loss of life & the ensuing mountain of agony & sorrow for their departed loved ones, besides loosing the bread winner, spending of huge money in hospital/recuperation expenses, emotional trauma, etc etc.

Why all this is happening with great rapidity & regularity, over the years? There are many reasons. Some of the main reasons, which come to mind are-too many vehicles of various modes, competing for their space in the limited road-width viz very big, powerful & fast vehicles -Blue Lines, dumpers, containers,  JCB‘s, trucks, tractors with trolleys, plying in the same carriageway, where the small, weakest & slow  vehicles plied by handicapped, cyclists, cycle rickshaws also move. Then, the geometry of our roads, ill-maintained dividers & islands, missing, ill-placed, ill maintained road signages, roads, footpaths , encroached by hawkers, construction agencies, make a deadly combination &  a ready recipe for mishaps, to happen!

Add to this, the apathy of drivers- at times, ill-trained, minor, drunken, insensitivity of traffic police, transport department, local authorities, construction agencies, general public, lack of strict enforcement of laid down rules, unethical practices in issuing licences & booking of offenders & we have  with us another deadly combo, of injuries & death on the roads.

What needs to be done urgently, is action on many fronts, by various stakeholders- proper care in issuing of driving licences, allowing only properly maintained vehicles on the roads with proper geometry ie separate unencroached areas for slow vehicles, strict enforcement of traffic rules, proper road marking & signages  , well lighted, maintained roads & planned deployment of existing traffic police, which at times, one observes is not proper & for which, there is big scope of its improvement with proper administration, management  motivation & training.

There is also need to encourage  and educate public to help the injured/ accident –involved persons,which presently, the general public feels shy of doing so, due to many reasons. Though, there have been a few good-samaritans, like mr Singh of Ghaziabad who have rendered help without bothering for any consequences-keeping humane spirit as their top agenda, about whose good deeds, were being shown by NDTV ,sometime back.. Community, has also a big role to play in this serious area of curbing accidents & rendering help in case of accidents.

Role of Local authorities in proper maintenance of roads, footpaths & proper execution & management of ongoing works on roads by Metro-HSBC, Subways executing agencies etc, is  most important & vital.

In this connection, Delhi Traffic Police have a very informative & useful website www.delhitrafficpolice.nic.in . In this website very useful information about various areas of road traffic management viz road safety, first aid,in case of accidents, what to do, types of helmets, information about informatory, regulatory & mandatory signboards ,persons to contact in case of accidents, information about traffic wardens, suggestion link, etc etc etc is given. Readers will find the same very useful.

There are many  ways, accidents can be averted/curbed. But, what is needed, foremost is the right attitude & will of the authorities & community. Injection of strong dose of values & ethics into our society and existing system, is the need of the hour. So, what is preventing us to adopt the same for our own & our loved ones safety?!

There’s something in that Blue Jersey: Adil Khan

 Upender Singh

Name: Adil Ahmed Khan
Date of Birth: 07/07/1988
Place of Birth: Verna, Goa
Teams Played For: Vasco SC, SESA FA, Sporting Clube de Goa
Position: Midfielder


Adil Ahmed Khan has been recently touted as one of the best young midfielders -- someone who has matured fast. This Goan prodigy started playing the sport at the age of 14 in his locality. Adil's parents were quick to note his talent and didn’t waste time in enrolling him with Vasco Sports Club.
Life moved fast for Adil. He started his professional career two years later – at the age of 16 -- with SESA FA where he had his first brush with the first division league. He stayed in SESA for seven years, turned a professional and then moved to Sporting Clube de Goa.

 
For past four years he has been backbone for Sporting Clube making his mark in the I-League in the process. His efforts bore him fruit when the hard work earned him a call to the Indian National Team for the exhibition match against Bayern Munich.

“It was a dream come true when I got the call. But this is just the start. I need to work harder to be a regular member,” he maintains.

“There’s something in that Blue jersey,” he confesses. “If I get a chance to play in the forthcoming AFC Challenge Cup, I will be trying to make the most of it. It’s a very important tournament.”

“If I get a chance, I’ll stick to the basics and follow the instructions. Needless to say, I’ll give my hundred percent,” he adds.

“My younger brother looks upto me and so do the kids in my village. But I’m not a star. I’ve just started. I want to play.” he goes on.

The hardworking midfielder picks up Mahesh Gawli as his favourite Indian player “Mahesh-bhai has been so composed as a player. His dedication should be a lesson for all,” Adil quips. “Off the field, he has always been a strict disciplinarian. I always look upto him.”

Tax Heaven-Why a hell for 99%?


Rakesh Manchanda

Heavens as we learn in religious teachings are known to provide unlimited luxury and rewards to angels. People on earth are assumed to qualify for a heaven by virtue of good deeds. “Tax Heaven” is a hush-hush “Th” term coined by competitor banking system in early globalisation era. It points out a far away foreign offshore land used as a shelter or a hideout of accumulated money. “Th”-code divides global citizens and stakeholders into “devils & angels”. Need and greed articulates a heaven for hiding money on this sole living planet. This magic term spells empowerment with protection to crony few by accumulation of hidden money siphoned from the “parent producer” country. This system which used to be a dream seller to 99% leaves the real producers of the hidden profit cheated. Majority are morally reduced as evil or lazy losers who are unable to covert the fast forward opportunity. Opportunity for selected few gets articulated by economic liberalisation. Hide and seek of this invisible money today in turbulent times is a global game in almost every part of the world. The bootypopularly known as black money in India is termed as dirty money in Europe or blood money in West. Politicians at large, pretending to be honest patriots, play the game often to keep the public engaged. People in a hell away from “tax heavens” remain patiently glued to their daily work with hope based on false spell of 1%.

Unlike feudal lords who used to identify a worship place used by people as a shelter or a hideout for the hard earned money, the modern industry uses offshore banks outside the country to park the loot. Such Banks are identified in countries like Switzerland, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Cyprus, Bahamas, Bermuda and so on. This list of heavens continues to grow to compete with each other, to protect the money of investors in foreign lands. Corporates pay extra to CFOs to help them to hide money in Swarg called Th. In most of the popular Th, there is no capital gains’ tax, no corporate tax, no income tax for say 20 years, no gift tax and no withholding tax. The dirty game cannot remain hidden- if the bank, the booty and the sources of production are found in the same country. The trick here is customer loyalty. No one shall come to the foreign bank to park dirty money if this activity is not kept secret. Result; the bank and the host country flourishes by providing tourism incentives and luring hospitality to capitalists. The honest production driven country having no tax heavens; remains poor. However this myth gets broken when a superpower applies diplomatic pressure. According to global media the Swiss Bank agrees to help American Parliament fighting recession to know the names of secret account holders having American citizenship. This proves that getting the hidden money back for saving the crisis is possible.

Where does this hidden process starts?
Today, Production is a growth issue. When loans via Banks are awarded to the producers of mines & factories, the money is treated as private not as public or national. Present system is engaged in maximising personnel profit by individual heroism of few trusted managers. Small groups and lobbies of excellence, working in a business team, having no ownership mechanism helps that 1%.

So what goes wrong in a business of Hell-Heaven divide?
There is nothing wrong in collective hard work, national spirit and intentions of 99% to grow. Fault lies with the deliberate design and a disconnect between the wheel of production and the consumption controlled by that 1%.We must see the corporate modus operandi in this chain of survival of Heaven-Hell divide. Corporate in nexus with politicians fails to audit and gives no participatory role to workers. Handling of public sector business by government is so weak and corrupt that even pilots and hockey team are not paid in time and they go on strike. Laws get bend and twisted in favour of the corporate. In the wheel of production the industry produces goods using casual labour monitored by managers. Part time worker as real producer is sent off as soon as production is over. So there is no sense of belonging. If workers go on strike to increase their standard of living then the paid media, government and corporate management continues to paint them as lazy, unproductive and anti-nationals. Media understands this corporate design but ignores it in favour of corporate and government. At times, media showcases Montek Singh Ahluwalia on Television declaring India falling on 132 nd. position from 128th position as per the UNDP study of 200 countries. `Rewards & Punishment` as a check-balance stands teasing and unjustified. What stands good for 1% cannot help and support the rest.

CFOs assist industrialists to steal money from the production cycle and pump it in the market of speculation and gamble called share baazar. Consumption or Industrial sales “score board” is kept hidden from the stakeholders of production and from the public investors. Unlike the wheel of production, the cycle of consumption throws open-unequal sharing, unequal profit, unequal responsibility, unequal surplus control and its dissemination. Public, in most cases as investors feel cheated but get re-convinced by the so called share market experts & promoters to invest again and again. CFOs who are well versed with Banking Laws & its twisted version are hired in the country hosting production. Back in host country say in India, these financial managers advice the Capitalist not to re-invest in the parent country as the desi or indigenous policy analysed by them is comfortably declared as non-encouraging for faster jobless growth of money.

Competition in the industrial playing field is good only when the competition forces the whistle blowers to blow off the rival company. In-house competition in production and sales team helps but this competition fails to touch the issues of transfer of money to Th. For more details read my article: “Hidden lessons from Cricket for a corruption free society.”

So long we have failed to question the base of a business paradigm that we must not expect a breakthrough and miracles. In the conventional system top leaders are expected to showcase all answers and solutions. What if this does not work? We often fail to encourage change because it directly shakes our blind trust, faith, beliefs and prejudices. Right from our childhood, we are programmed to escape from participating in deep experiences. We feel threatened to use simple enquiring tools like How! When! Why! Where! and so on. The nuts and bolts at the site of production and consumption need to be identified. Indigenous fund recycling monitored with strict regulations with more jobs is the only ways out.Tax Heavens-Why should we accept them ? Helping less equals to transform into more equals can save the crisis. This is not a philanthropic business step but a long term human survival kit. It will ensure more productivity, sense of belonging, sharing, participation and `actual` consumption. If India is able to plug the weak production and sales format that allows such ongoing inhuman corruption how shall it honour the ink of its signature to UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)? UNCAC clause (Article 51 & 52) has provision to help countries for recovery of hidden money in foreign lands.

Solutions need to be rescued at gut level. If a child’s trousers get caught in the wheel, the bicycle chain is rotated back and not forward.
