KASHMIR (Updated)
Today, 5 August 2019 has become a historic day in our history as something which could not be done in 70 years has taken shape now. Union Home minister Amit Shah has announced that Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be scrapped. He also announced that Jammu and Kashmir will no longer be a state and it will be bifurcated into two Union Territories— Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.  read more...
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

No single incident in the history of independent India has disgraced the nation as much as the terrorist attack on Bombay since the night of 26 November. It continued for more than forty eight hours and the Indian commandos were still operating and the terrorists had not been killed or flushed out yet (6/26pm) at the time I started writing this piece.

We were returning from Nathdwara and reached Jaipur on our way back to Delhi on 26 November and it was there when I opened the internet that I read about terrorists at Bombay. Some live pictures in the television channels did show us some action pictures but we had to journey back and it was only six hours after that we saw more of the television pictures. As usual, the English televison channels were objective crisp and non-speculative in their coverage while the Hindi channels had many stupid women anchors (the eye ball formula) rattling off whatever nonsense it suited them to utter with some sentimental and patriotic looking stuff with fluency.

What was the news ?Again one had to fall back on the English news channels to pick up some facts which were startling:
(a) The terrorists had set up control rooms in these hotels. What was the Bombay police doing and what has the UPA government to say in its defence because it was happening in a Congress ruled state and not a BJP ruled one which it could have blamed and patted its own back?
b) Ammunition stored in these hotels used by the terrorists were huge enough to wage a regular war for so many days.What was the Bombay police doing and what has the UPA government to say in its defence because it was happening in a Congress ruled state and not a BJP ruled one which it could have blamed and patted its own back.
c) The Bombay underworld helped the terrorists with full knowledge of the layout of these hotels which commandos of Indian army did not know.These criminals also helped the terrorists with ammunition and food to last for many days.

A report from USA reads thus:
US intelligence expert says Patil is incompetent

Walter Andersen, a former senior Administration official, who headed up the State Department's South Asia Division of the Intelligence and Research Bureau has said the Mumbai terrorist attacks showed clearly a failure of India's intelligence and security apparatus and also the utter incompetence of
Home Minister Shivraj Patil .

"You have a totally incompetent home minister, and why he isn't removed is beyond me," he said, "He really doesn't know how to get the bureaucracy organised to have some sort of coordinated planning." He acknowledged that in the wake of reports that the terrorists had set up control rooms in the two hotels ahead of time, showed that "this was a sophisticated, well planned set up. This is something that takes months of planning."

It takes months of planning and the government of Maharastra and of India were not aware it ? Can there be a more disgraceful proof of the inability of these governments to govern? They know, these politicians, only the art of vote bank politics and cannot like USA,UK and other European pass stringent legislation and take ruthless action to wipe out these. They will not and they cannot because they have to appease some sections for their votes. They cannot see that their policies have only encouraged the growth of home grown terrorists.

And read thess two reports
1) Meanwhile, there are reports that Colaba police have impounded four boats allegedly used by the terrorists to reach the Mumbai coast.

Islamic terror group e-mailed threat to attack Mumbai two months ago
By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 10:37 AM on 27th November 2008
An Islamic terror group warned it was planning a massacre in Mumbai two months ago, it emerged today.

Combine it with what I had written in the following piece.
31 July 2008, 12:50 AM
“And it is the antardasha of Ketu in the seventh house in the horoscope of India. I reminded the students that in 1981 I had written in the Vishwa Vijay Panchanga (Hindi) that the Ketu dasha in the Indian horoscope would be dreadful in many ways. We had Punjab terrorist in spreading which USA was said to have a big hand and if USSR had not passed on the information, the Golden Temple tragedy would have more disastrous than what it was. But it did lead to the assassination of Indira Gandhi and killing of Sikhs in Delhi and elsewhere in India. Now the Ketu antardasha and two eclipses falling in August, both visible and both affecting the axis of religious/communal harmony how could India remain complacent with unchecked growth of home grown terrorists?

The nuclear deal had to trigger it off. The terrorists had prepared very well as the events show. But will the television channels show any sense of moral and national responsibility? (30 July 2008)

It has been said in a report that this terrorist act has been financed by Saudi Arabia and training has been given in Pakistan with the help of Al Quaeda.

And, without taking sides ask yourself will you agree with L.K.Advani’s attack that the Manmohan Singh’s is the most incompetent government and was totally responsible for the inordinate growth of terrorists who can now operate freely in India? Terrorists can set up a operation room and dump enough ammunition for months inside a big city of India without being detected and then wage a battle!!

India is now a disgraced nation with no need to seek such a certificate from anyone in or outside India from its critics. History will record what a US paper now says gleefully:

Attack forces India onto front lines of global war on terror
