The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fooland laughs dances plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. Indian tv channels show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house. Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter. Mayawati states this as 'injustice' done on dalits. Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper. T ...

KOLKATA: Medha Patkar has written to Mamata Banerjee, urging her to revoke the ban on bicycles. The blanket ban on cycling in Kolkata, she said, was against the interests of the working class, for whom the Bengal chief minister has been fighting for. Kolkata's cause has now been taken up by social activists across the country and even in Dhaka. Cyclists' organisations in Mumbai and Dhaka have decided to organise rallies against the ban on September 21. Shammi Sethi of Everyday Short Night Rides...

Reward and punishment Subversion of Bureaucracy and Modiphobia: MUST READ.. The Modi Government in Gujarat has ensured the support and collaboration of bureaucrats and police personnel by the effective employment of carrot and stick policy; by penalizing those who defied illegal orders and adhered to the Indian Constitution and rewarding the others who collaborated in illegal activities, mass crimes, destruction of evidence and overall subversion of the criminal justice system. The active collaborators were rewarded by even post retirement assignments. A few illustrations are: Ø G. Subharao (IAS, 1965): The then chief secretary (2002) was given a three-month extension in his post and also appointed chairman of the Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission with a fixed tenure for six years from May 2003. Occupying the senior-most position within the state bureaucracy in 2002, Subbarao coerced officials to support the unlawful policies of the Modi government and even instructed officers to „eliminate‟ ...

JD(U) MP detained, prevented from visiting riot-hit areas Press Trust of India Muzaffarnagar, 17 September: JD(U) MP Ali Anwar Ansari was today prevented from visiting the riot-hit areas here and detained at the railway station by the UP police. Circle Officer, Sanjeev Bajpai said Ansari was detained as a preventive measure in view of the situation in the region. Mr Ansari said, “The state government has no problem when Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi visited the area but it is resorting to such action against us when our effort is to bring peace in the trouble-torn areas.” The JD(U) leader, who is a Rajya Sabha MP, said he wanted to visit the family members of the journalist killed in the clashes and also meet a group of people associated with social activist Medha Patkar, who was sitting on a dharna. He was detained at the GRP station. “The government is not allowing us to go there. I am not somebody who will provoke communal feelings ~ There is no curfew in the are ...
Dr.Narendra Dabholkar, a well known rationalist and anti-superstition activist from Maharashtra was shot dead in Pune on 20th August 2013. He was the Founder of the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (Committee for Eradication of Superstition in Maharashtra). The Humanist community is shocked at this mindless violence. Narendra Dabholkar, a doctor by profession had dedicated his life to the cause of rationalism and humanism. He spearheaded several campaigns against superstitions and was involved in caste annihilation programmes. Narendra Dabholkar was campaigning to get an anti-superstition bill passed by the Maharashtra Government. A day after his death the Maharashtra state government cleared an Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Ordinance. The law seeks to make it punishable for self-styled godmen to prey on people by offering rituals, charms, magical cures and propagating black magic. He had made powerful enemies and had faced protests against his work. Narendra Dabholkar also campaigned agains ...
We might remember that around six years back a massive agitation erupted in Singur area of West Bengal where the TATA’s had planned to construct a mega car manufacturing factory. The Singur agitation which was spearheaded by Mamata Banerjee (present CM of West Bengal) gained lot of media attention when the Tata Motor company started constructing the factory in the area to manufacture the TATA Nano car. The then West Bengal ‘s leftist Government facilitated the land acquisition under Land Acquisition Act of 1894 to undertake the acquisition of around 997 acres of farm land (more than 9000 kanals approximately) This move was opposed tooth and nail by the thousands of local villagers , activists and opposition political parties as well. Due to immense public pressure the TATA Motors finally decided to move out of Singur in October 2008 . Similar agitations have been taking place in various parts of India like Narmadha Bachaaw Andholan spearheaded by Medha Patkar and many more anti land acquisition agitat ...

Cycle Satyagraha is catching up! Medha Patkar writes to CM to lift the ban on Cycling!
Kabir Kala Manch (KKM), a Pune-based cultural troupe first came together in response to the communal carnage in Gujarat. The group went on to make its voice heard on the rights of slum-dwellers and workers; on sustainable development; and most of all, the need to eliminate, once and for all, casteist practices in our society. KKM has performed for and with working class movements as well as movements led by Medha Patkar, Bhai Vaidya and others. In 2011, the state of Maharashtra began to brand these cultural activists as “Naxalites”. With this excuse, the KKM and its activities have been targeted time and again. Members of KKM were arrested in May, 2011 under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). They got bail recently, but almost immediately after, Sheetal Sathe and Sachin Mali were arrested on April 2, 2013 after the two staged a “satyagraha” outside the Vidhan Bhavan (Maharashtra State Legislature) protesting the police’s use of UAPA to accuse them of being Maoists and absconders.

Attack on Dalits during Gujarat Riots - Ignored by Media = There are people who claim to be 'Champions of Dalits', many of whom are full of hatred for Hindus and Hindu religion. Some people try to raise slogans like "Dalit-Muslim bhai bhai" trying to bring Dalits and Muslims together against the Hindu society, like Dr Udit Raj, formerly known as Ram Raj. Udit Raj is a man burning with hatred for Hinduism, which he left and adopted Buddhism. In 1995, BSP leader Mayawati became Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, and hurled abuses at Lord Ram, fabricated cases against upper caste people under the SC/ST atrocities prevention Act. Many people, from politicians like Sonia Gandhi, Ramvilas Paswan, Mayawati, Communists to social activists like Arundhati Roy, Medha Patkar etc claim to be fighting for the cause of Dalits, the oppressed classes and other weaken sections. Some of these people also falsely launch a campaign against Hindu organisations like RSS, VHP etc accusing them of being organisations of 'upper caste H ...

Aamir Khan's journey from QSQT till today Aamir is possibly one of the very few child actors who have become successful stars. Not many know that Aamir belongs to the family of Indian freedom fighter (late) Abdul Kalam Azad. Rang De Basanti was selected as India's official entry to the Oscars. Although the film was not shortlisted as a nominee for the Oscar, it received a nomination for Best Foreign Film at the BAFTA Awards in England. Lagaan was selected as India's official entry to the 74th Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category. In a world where every big film tries to touch the Rs. 100 crore mark, Aamir Khan is the lone contender in the Rs. 200 Crore club with his iconic hit film 3 *** In April 2006, Aamir had participated in the demonstrations put up by the 'Narmada Bachao Andolan Committee' with Medha Patkar after the Gujarat government's decision to raise the height of the Narmada dam.

Medha Patkar Exposed Francois Gautier exposes Medha Patkar's explosive agenda Most people in India have a positive impression about Medha Patkar. Is she not the secular activist who takes on big business, fights for preserving India’s greenery and defends the poor and downtrodden? However documents leaked to the press have revealed a very different picture: that of a scheming person, who has no qualms about breaking the law and whose sources of funding are mysterious. In a letter written in October 2007, Dr Urmilaben Patel, member of the Congress Working Committee, wrote to Shri Pranab Mukherjee, who was then the Hon'ble Minister for External Affairs Government of India: “You are kindly aware, that Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) headed by Medha Patkar is actively involved in opposing all hydro projects in India...

India is not for sale : Medha Patkar on Budget 2013
Medha Patkar's comments on the Union Budget 2013-2014 India is not for sale : Foreign Investments Can't be the Bedrock of Indian Economy Naam Common Man Kaa, Kaam Corporates Kaa : Medha Patkar New Delhi, January 28 : In his budget speech, lasting for 2 hours, Mr. Chidambaram, the finance minister, with undoubted eloquence talked much about the poverty to equity, churned out thoughts and principles of taxing the rich, empowering women and youth, enabling the children, including the poor. However, if one looks at his principles and promises on one hand and the plans, projects and allocations on the other, one finds a very limited redressal of grievances and no fulfillment of dreams of the toiling sections of India. As expected, Finance Minister’s presentation of budget revolved much around the womenfolk, the question of violence, exclusion and security yet where are new plans to use the contributions of human resource, creativity, perseverance and hard work and the productivity with skills of Women? It is ...
Following are some of the key highlights of the Union Budget 2013-14 presented by Finance Minister P Chidambaram in Parliament on Thursday: *No change in income tax slabs *Relief of Rs 2,000 for tax payers in tax bracket of Rs. 2-5 lakh *10% surcharge on persons with taxable income of over Rs. 1 crore *Tobacco products, SUVs and mobile phones to cost more *Income limit under Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme raised to 12 lakh from Rs 10 lakh *First home loan of up to Rs 25 lakh to get extra interest deduction of up to Rs 1 lakh *Duty free limit of gold import increased to Rs. 50,000 for male passengers and Rs 1 lakh for female passengers *India’s first women’s bank to be set up by October * Concessional six per cent interest on loans to weavers * Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana benefit extended to rickshaw pullers, auto and taxi drivers, among others * ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ of Rs 1,000 crore to empower women and provide safety in the wake of Delhi gang-rape incident *Fiscal deficit for 2013-14 pegged at ...

JAI RASHTRA JAI MAHARASHTRA!! Though i do not belong to Maharashtra.. But i am always impressed by them.. i am amazed how people of one particular region let me say erstwhile Bombay Presidency have the power to resonate with whole of India.. where as other regions/ states are unable to do so... Gokhle, Tilak's Ganesh Puja, Gandhi, Phule and Ambedkar, RSS, Shiva Sena, Medha Patkar or Anna Hazare or Narendra Modi.. One may agree or disagree with the movements... But all had/ have the power to shook/ shake India.. Other states look dwarf in front of it.. And the best part is all movements were non conformist with the State... Now my question.. is it in the cultural strain that one region has more capability to start a movement which resonates with whole of country?.. Which others dont have..and I think.. Yes

Inter-linking of rivers . Nagaresh Member, Bar Council of Kerala Having earned the praise of the international community for the judicial activism of the Supreme Court of India in other environmental issues, the apex court of India has now given the go ahead for the most ambitious national project of interlinking rivers in the Himalayan and peninsular basin. It has issued a further direction to constitute a committee consisting of representatives of various government departments and members of the civil society. The idea of linking various rivers in India, dates back to 1827 when Arthur Cotton, a British engineer landed in India and was assigned the task of diverting Cauvery currents to the Collerron Dams. Before returning to his native England to a knighthood and a public banquet, Sir Arthur prepared an excellent blue print for the utilisation of India’s water resources, by linking the rivers. Sir M. Visvesvaraya, inventor of the automatic weir water floodgates, had also dreamt of interlinking the Ind ...

I thought there was a global freedom for Art and Cinema to portray truth and emotions. Unfortunately, it may be amplified so as to not hurt the sentiments of the society. I am quite sure has immense respect for our society and dignified enough to make a film which doesn't affect our peace and harmony in any way. Banning shows the fragility and the shameful influence of caste and religion on our system.

MONDAY, 26 JULY 2010 Medha Patkar decries police firing in Sompeta National Alliance of People's Movements national convener Medha Patkar has alleged that the nexus between politicians and corporate circles is the root cause for the killing of two innocent persons in Sompeta on July 14. The social activist, who addressed a public meeting in Sompeta on Saturday, condemned the police firing to suppress people's movement against the move to establish a thermal power project by the Nagarjuna Construction Company. “The agitators exposed that the officials had submitted false reports claiming that the lands given for the project were barren and they did not come under wetland category. But, it was successfully proved that those were wetlands. That is why the NEAA cancelled the Environment Clearance,” Ms. Medha Patkar said. She asked the people to continue their agitation since the NCC would try again to begin the project works with the support of the government. “The government should take back lands imme ...

In continuation to my previous posts "Girls please maintain Modesty". I am writing this article on women. I really adore few women in our nation, and I am proud that I am also a part of this nation where such great women live in. These women are not ordinary citizens; they are much more qualified than us in their respective field. An IAS officer, a famous Social Activist, a renowned actress in Indian Cinema Industry, but these three women had sacrificed all their prosperity, luxuriance to serve the poorest of the poor; their outer appearance might be as simple as common man, but these women had contributed a lot in improving the living conditions of people.

A: “In spite of living in an independent democratic nation for over 60 years, the lives of Adhivasis and Dalits has not improved. They hardly enjoy any basic rights that we do. But, they are a lot more loyal to this nation that the rich corpora ...

All three imprisoned women are fore-runners in the 15-month long struggle against the Koodankulam nuclear power plant.

The response to the spectrum auction will expose the silliness of the activists like Kejriwal ( who definitely do not have India's interests in mind!) What to talk of 1,76,000 crores touted by IAC +CAG + TV channel is not fetching any bidders .I ,for one, am surprised that there were bids at all!!.I doubt if Govt can raise more than 5000 crores That is closer to the values Now once the Coal blocks get auctioned ,people will realize that CAG and the activists are absolutely clueless about business, about economics and are really self servers . These people will take us back to the stone ages All development is resisted by a handful of agitators enjoying free TV coverage ( I acn understand the TV guys) .After all " Man bites dog " is news!!

Medha Patkar will send everyone to live in Jungles, and blame Corporates for every ill in india. God save us.

New Delhi: The simmering tension between Arvind Kejriwal-Prashant Bhushan duo and their former colleagues who did not part ways with Gandhian leader Anna Hazare came to the fore on Saturday with the Hazare group criticizing their estranged comrades for relying on serial exposes. "It is not enough to just expose scams but it is important to go into the root cause of corruption that can happen only through the national-level people's movement," said activist Medha Patkar on Saturday referring to the tactics of the Kejriwal-Bhushan duo. Although Patkar took no names, the remark echoing the Hazare team's criticism of "hit-and-run" tactics it feels Kejriwal employs put the spotlight on the growing chasm between the two camps who had rattled the government with their agitation for a Lokpal. Hazare said he was announcing a plan of action to dispel the notion that he had gone into a shell and that there was no agenda to carry forward the movement against corruption. With the two sides going their ways soon after ...

Stop repression against peoples movements India Against Corruption expresses deep concern about the recent incidents of repression against peoples movements across the country. It is ironic that while some of the biggest scams on public money are not investigated and the most corrupt politicians and officials allowed to go scot-free, police and administration are overzealous in prosecuting those who raise peoples’ voice. The last few days have witnessed several instances from Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. In Jharkhand, the police re-arrested Dayamani Barla, a leading adivasi activist, as soon as she was released on bail. She has been involved in a popular protest against forcible acquisition of land near Ranchi involving police firing against the protesters. In Maharashtra, activists Suniti S. R., Maruti Bhapkar, Prasad and 70 others have been arrested for leading the protest of Lavasa, Tata and Wang dam affected people. They have been sent to Yeervada jail without being informed of the cha ...

Initially they booked them under Section 151 (s noted in jail diary), the bail plea for which was not even admitted in the court by City Judicial Magistrate yesterday citing pressure from administration.

1) Corruption What is corruption, it is like you are influencing somebody by way of (1) impression (2) Friendly nature (3) by opposing (4) giving some food / sweets (5) gifts (6) money (7) gold / silver / diamond / platinum ornaments. By this way the influencing people has started long way back, but now it is like practice or give feel good factor. Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It hurts everyone who depends on the integrity of people in a position of authority.

Vandematarammm is a tiny initiative to support the pursuit of truth, at the heart of this initiative is to help spread awareness of individuals and communities working relentlessly against corruption in India. People like Kiran Bedi, Ashok Kejriwal, IAC members, Baba Ramdev, Anna Hazare, Medha Patkar and hope to add many more names to this list, so please come forward and help in spreading the message of an India where every individual stands together as one voice. Lets generate political will, corporate will, social will and individual will to make a positive impact.
Today in my mind ? Well, I was thinking that , We the middle & lower-middle class always try to stick to playing 'Safe Games' as being a family man, it is better to follow the old saying-" Aapni banchle Baper naam..." ie. 'if I survive, my famile will survive' & "Parer chhele Panchananda jato uchhanne jai tato aanondo." ie 'if other's son go to hale. it's a pleasure to us' - this type of mentality! Let AAnna Hazare/Arvind Kejriwal/ Medha Patkar etc. fight, let us be in safe heaven, we will eat the fruit when it will ripe!

Medha Patkar is not fake. You may not like her, but she is a true grassroot activist.
National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM) led by Medha Patkar played a crucial role in exposing the scams of Adarsh Housing Society, Lavasa Hill City project, Hiranandani Garden, Shivalik Developers Golibar project etc in Maharashtra. The NAPM activists spent years in excavating the documents, conducting persistent struggles, challenging them in ministries, Courts and mobilizing the people directly affected on the ground.

No one has harmed movement against corruption more than Arvind Kejriwal. He has created a situation where no movement will succed for comming ten years atleast, just to show he is bigger than Aruna Roy, Medha Patkar, Anna Hazare or to say any activist.

My point of view on CoP-11, October 17, 2012 ~ Hypocrisy thy name – the three Indian dignitaries, namely Minister for Environment & Forests Jayanthi Natarajan, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N. Kirankumar Reddy & Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh, spoke, at the same wave length of mine that I communicated to them and spoke on TV channels, at Biodiversity meet at Hyderabad on 16th October 2012. The reality is that they are adopting exactly opposite. MoEF recently succumbed to the pressure from tourism lobby and made the Supreme Court to retract on tourism at Tiger reserve. CAG pointed Forests official in collusion with their benami NGO together pocketed the money allotted for reforestation programme by MoEF. PM in his recent economic reforms introduced FDI and multi-brand retail outlets. In AP every day we see stories on the killing of wildlife, destruction of forests in thousands of acres, unplanned urban growth, production of GM seed illegally in biodiversity rich zones by MNCs ...

'Cost of development' is subjective. For example, what is the cost of a family that is devastated (not properly rehabilitated) while someone else gets the benefit of the development? For better perspective on cost of development read the book 'Small Is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered' - a collection of essays by British economist E. F. Schumacher. (Its available in the British Library, Pune). The book will also make it easy to understand what activists like Vandana Shiva and Medha Patkar are saying and fighting for.
In India even Gods and Godesses have gone through agni pariksha then why this congressmen are protecting their son-in -law from being investigated. Everytime the allegation of corruption comes they try to defend it with unsensible reasonings. Even the spokesperson like Renuka Choudary, Manish Tiwari, etc sounds like they are hooting a broken trumpet. Best thing to watch is Renuka Choudary feeling hot inside A/C newsroom and acting like she has come after hard work of social service like Medha Patkar. I guess whether they have seen the real rural india or felt the pain of people. Election is the time when you will see this all chamchas out from hole called Delhi and will be roaming in airconditioned car to visit the diversified colorful India that too on government expense.

about nba~~~ he Narmada is India's largest westward-flowing river and is of immense religious and cultural importance to the people living on its banks. It is also the subject of the largest river development project in the world, the Narmada Valley Project, which envisages the construction of thirty large and hundreds of small dams along its length. The Narmada projects are the epitome of unsustainable development. Two of the largest proposed dams, Sardar Sarovar and Narmada Sagar, have been under construction since 1961. According to Narmada Bachao Andolan, the dams force the displacement of about a million people and affect many more, largely poor peasants and tribals. They also cause immense ecological damage through the inundation of forests, including prime habitats of rare species. Resettlement and compensation have been totally inadequate and there is not the remotest prospect that the displaced people, the 'oustees', will be adequately resettled, nor that the ecological damage can be compensated ...

"Mamata, TMC leaders in Jantar Mantar to protest FDI reforms in retail." Has she consulted Medha Patkar??
Mamata Banerjee is essentially an Anna Hazare or Medha Patkar. Can organize loud protests but not govern. Bengal was stupid to fall for it.
In any democratic environment difference of opinion is bound to b there. Just like the views of Tilak & Netaji were opposite to the views of Gandhiji. But all of them aimed to free the country of foreign rule. Views of both Annaji & Kejrival teams hv merits. Though their path is different, but aim is same - to eradicate corruption. Annaji, Santosh Hegde, Medha Patkar, Kiran Bedi etc feel that forming a political party in not the right thing to do. The reason for this is that many poor people r not at all mature enough to understand the real purpose of hypocrite politicians. They vote for some cash, beer, sari etc. That is the reason there is free flow of cash during electioneering. Hence it is very difficult for honest man to win, unless supported by a corrupt party. Arvind Kejrival, Manish Sisodia etc r also right in thinking that unless honest people try to get elected, how can we expect clean politics from many MPs having criminal record? Others hv lot of black money stashed in foreign banks. How can w ...

The Real Existing fact of our Indian Economy.A Real Food for Thought.
Terrorism has become a universal phenomenon. It has come to stay. I cannot now imagine a time when there will be no terrorism. We will have to learn to live with it. We have to take a fresh look at life and death. As all other nations will have to. No one can be sure they will see tomorrow. Controlling this is beyond the power of any government in the world. Increasing the police force will not finish off terrorism. Terror will only increase as grievances increase. Even Medha Patkar the other day talked of Naxals, that they (the Narmada Bachao Andolan) may have to associate with them. When a person who is genuinely Gandhian, who behaves in a Gandhian way, talks of Naxals, what have we come to? Why are the Naxals thriving? What has failed? The answers are obvious. Taking police action is not going to solve the Naxal problem either. I do not believe in their method or ideology, but the Naxals do have a future if you ask me. They have a place in this country. vijay tendulkar
