THE BIG SCAM OF NGO’ S

The Intelligence Bureau (IB) report on non-governmental organisations (NGOs) is right up to the point.

You think that the most corrupt organizations in India belong to the Government? But you may be wrong, because some of the biggest scammers in this country could be the Non Governmental Organizations, or NGO’s, and it is all done in the name of the poor of India.

In the old times, the leaders of NGO’s used to be working in the field, dressed simply, lived in humble dwellings, and had minimal salaries, sufficient for their most essential needs. But nowadays, the new breed of NGOs you meet in Delhi, or Bombay, is smartly dressed in jeans, he or she usually comes from India’s upper elite class, carry the latest laptop and often travel around in a/c cars. These NGO’s spend half of their time abroad, in London, Paris, or New York, doing smart presentations, with mesmerizing slides and Excel spreadsheets, in front of gullible westerners, always ready to shed a tear for the poor “downtrodden Indians”, so as to convince them to grant more funds.

And what is usually all about? 70% of the time “woman empowerment”, or “uplifting” the villagers. It is nowadays fashionable in India to always highlight the downtrodden condition of Indian women and their underprivileged place in Indian society. But no country in the world has granted such an important place to women in its spirituality and social ethos. And even today, behind all appearances – arranged marriages, submission to men, preference of male children in some rural areas (but girls are loved in India like nowhere in the world) – it can be safely said that very often, from the poorest to the richest classes, women control –even if behind the scenes – a lot of the family affairs: the education of their children (men in India are often “mama’s boys”), monetary concerns, and husbands often refer to them for important decisions. Countries such as France or the United States, who are often preaching India on “women’s rights” never had a woman as their top leader, whereas India had Indira Gandhi ruling with an iron hand for nearly twenty years; and proportionately they have less MP’s than India, which is considering earmarking 33% of seats in Parliament for women, a revolution in human history!

But this obsession of NGO’s with women and village empowerment (usually they take one village and make it like a showcase, for the benefit of visiting donors from abroad) has completely eclipsed the burning issue that would require NGO’s attention with the tremendous amount of funds they attract from abroad : afforestation, as there are hardly any forest worth the name left today in India. Take the Himalayas for instance, and a region like the lovely Kumaon hills. Less than forty years ago, people in Almora, the ancient capital of the Kumaons, still remember the beautiful blue cedars forests. Today, there are no forests left around Almora – they were cut down in the early 70’s by contractors from the plains with the full knowledge of the Government – except commercial pine forests, which impoverish the soil and do not hold it properly. Yet, there is terrible shortage of water in Almora, the climate has warmed-up considerably in the last twenty years and wood is fearfully expensive.

There are literally hundreds of NGO’s in the Kumaon hills, who are doing lots of women empowerment, lots of village uplifting, lots of weaving this and weaving that… but absolutely no tree planting. Why? “Because the others do not do it”, is the usual answer, when you ask some of the NGO’s or :“because it is too hard work”. But the beauty of the Kumaon hills around Almora is fast going: more and more hotels are coming up, cutting more trees, like near the Kassar Devi temple, above Almora, where Vivekananda is supposed to have meditated and which has been bought to make into a resort by a non- resident Muslim who is suspected to have links with Ibrahim Dawood.

Most of the big NGO’s are funded by Western countries; but what is not always known is that they often get the bulk of their budgets from big Christian organizations, such as Christian Aid, or Oxfam. There is no doubt that Christians are doing selfless work in India and that they still provide the best in health care and education (work which Hindus should do themselves). But it may so happen – more in the case of American Protestants than European Catholics, who are more tolerant – that there is a slight catch, a string attached to the money donated, not only because there is always that western obsession with “woman empowerment” and the “exploited” low caste Indian (by the Brahmins, of course), but often also, these charitable organizations have a downright bias against Hindus and even towards the BJP ! Some of them even had posters advising people not to vote for the BJP in the last elections. Can you imagine an Indian NGO asking Indians settled in France not to vote for some pro-catholic party? They would be immediately kicked out!

This is not to say that there are no selfless NGO’s who are not fattening themselves on money meant for the poor. Some of them do bring drinking water to remote villages in the Himalayas, or like the Young India Group, teach villagers to stand for their own rights. But there has to be a shift away from empowerment, to fight the real burning issues which are affecting India such as afforestation and water collection (there is no Government policy for collecting the tremendous amounts of water India gets from monsoons, which would save millions of gallons of precious ground water which is fast depleting). And the Government, while leaving to NGO’s the freedom of expression they already have, should make it mandatory that they have a certain percentage of their activities dedicated to these two areas. Our NGO, FACT (fact-india.com) is building a Museum of (true) Indian History in Pune near the airport. Needless to say: no foreign agency ever got interested to it and we find it even difficult to raise funds with Indian companies, who prefer to donate to the politically correct, such as health and education….

  2. Ashok Sharma

    Poutry in india hit by ngo ,high court pil v,s pb.hariyana high court,govt must ban ngo

  3. Nowadays when we supply materials to large supply chains in USA, they expect us to sign an agreement that we will not indulge in corruption of any kind while making supplies to them and corruption includes corporate corruption. It seems their own acts are not applicable on them as what they are doing is a form of corporate corruption when they buy off such NGOs for their business interests. If I deal with them I have to ensure my sub vendors also do not resort to corruption for our busines interest. But for their business interests it is acceptable.

  4. Some of these NGO’s are specially created to finish off the right wing and Hindu religion, these came up in last 15 years or so.

  5. But now its Modi Sarkar in power. NGO’s like Greenpeace will be kicked off from India. Recent article in Sunday Guardian is the proof for Govt. Hope govt. will take strong action .http://www.sunday-guardian.com/news/12-foreign-nationals-behind-stir-against-power

    Sir, your analysis about India is really awesome. Hinduism is the only inclusive religion in this world, which doesn’t force anyone to follow it and also gives free choice to lead one’s life. Neither does it denounce other religions. Eventually this had led to positivity in its evolution over the ages and in India all other religions have benefitted from its very advanced thoughts. Religion was an effort to end cannibalism, but I feel the effort is failing slowly. It’s said the greatest enemy of mankind is man himself and the greatest protector of the earth is also man. So it’s all two sides of the same coin!!!

  7. Since little hinduism is mixed ridiculously in this blog and more in comments: :
    1) Remember , Directly or Indirectly Religion is the first cause of WAR..(cant be denied)
    2.) Besides indian government has no “no religion” column in any certificate.. so am forced to tick “hindu” and after readin all this mahabharat, many versions of ramayana and a few veda books.. i came to a conclusion that ” HINDUISM IS NOTHING BUT INDIRECTLY BRAHMINISM ”
    3.) Inever saw any brahmin cleaning septic tank or sweeping roads..how many of them are labourers and after thinking why dont these proud brahmins sweat and earn money…I REALISED THAT THE WHOLE STRUCTURE AND ALSO THE LOOP HOLES IN IT ARE DESIGNED FOR THIS BENEFIT.
    4.) the enemy of religion is science…i have never seen or heard any useful invention for mankind by hinduism instead it harms on the name of caste..
    4.) And Major financial aid for NGOs are from corporates and again i can even challenge that majority of the employers and bosses of corp. companys are brahmins..
    5.) THEREFORE BE SPECIFIC ABT NGO’S and stop supporting any religion even in comment…it shows our narrow mindedness when we support religion..

  8. RLEK / SOPHIA – Dehradun
    Isn’t this the same Ruchi Kukreti whose father-in-law runs RLEK in Dehradun? She must have got a lot of experience certificates from there. For some time she got a good salary in the garb of the name Ruchi Kukreti from various projects until people came to know she was Ruchi Kaushal, Avdesh’s daughter-in-law. So was the Son (a navy reject on mental grounds) Praveen (now runs SOPHIA) who still lives off the family RLEK business as well. Heard his wife is on the payroll too.

  11. I am surprised how everyone is free to write anything in the comment section. I am Praveen , perfectly mentally sound working in SOPHIA NGO for last 15 years. RLEK and SOPHIA are 2 different NGOs. Its been few years since my wife is dead and she cannot be on payroll in her grave.
    If we examine all the 3 comments here, these were written on same date 26th October at 3.26 a.m., 3.29 a.m. and 3.33 a.m. .
    How can same comment be written under 3 different IDs of Guptajee, Yamini Chauhan and Guptajee & Yamini Chauhan ?

  12. mmm…. let’s go step by step here, so we are fair to everyone and this might jog your memory too …
    1. Aren’t you Minto urf Praveen.
    2. Were you not kicked out of the navy on medical grounds of showing insanity.
    3. Doesn’t RLEK belong to your father.
    4. Were you not with RLEK for many years before your father opened this SOPHIA for you.
    5. I was there and know the reason very well why your wife passed away. So let’s not go there. You get my message – don’t you. I can reply back in a very clear tone, which would be very uncomfortable for a lot of people. You think your in-laws don’t know everything?
    6. You remember me Yamani Chauhan (hum pehla lete hai phir deta hai)
    7. I can also remind you what happened to me at your brother’s wedding.
    8. Talking about your brother – Was your sister-in-law Ruchi Kaushal on the RLEK payroll under the name Ruchi Kukrety.
    Careful what you write as I can remind you of some things which will upset you.
    However, if you admit the truth and leave an apology here for every single question (1 to 8) I may let you go.
    Remember NEVER take advantage of a vulnerable poor young girl.

  13. I am waiting Praveen, but about to lose my patience.

  14. You like attention – media attention. Keep a close eye out for print, audio and video media. I gave you a chance Manto (unlike you did to me) but you decided to play dead and you have lost it now.

  15. Okay Manto – I know which papers you read. I will ensure it’s the last one to OPEN your eyes. The good part will be that everybody knows before you realize why people are looking at you like this and what they are thinking about you.
    Guess which one(s) out of these Reena, Sunil, Namrata, Pallavi, Manavi, Pratima, Rekha & Jitendra knows EVERYTHING. I updated them(s) in FULL detail.
    Oops Just found this https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=Ruchi+Kukreti+email+ngo+dehradun so Ruchi Kukreti (shouldn’t it be Ruchi Kaushal – Bahu Rani) was given PRAGATI Like you got SOPHIA – Good work Avdhash you need some more awards. Rishtedari Nibhaye.

  16. We always knew down there you were a PUSSY
