Can @amitShah & the @BJP4U win next 4 elections???

Can Amit Shah, who has just been reelected President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unopposed, win the next four crucial state elections (Assam, West Bengal, Kerala and Tamil Nadu)? Mr Shah has lost the last three elections the BJP contested – badly at that – and it should maybe have been a warning a sign to the BJP leadership for introspection and change.
Met Mr Shah once in his palatial house in Akbar Road. For a man who spent quite some time in jail, he seemed to lack humility (he promised to help the Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History, Pune, which I am building ‘fact-india.com”, but I never heard of him again and all my attempt to contact him failed). But there is no doubt that he has a shrewd mind.
Do you think Amit Shah can win these elections ? It’s crucial, for if Narendra Modi were to lose all of them, there is a good chance he will lose also the next general elections in 2019… And India would be the greatest loser… FG

What is @NarendraModi’s secret?

Neither that he is more intelligent than another, neither that he is a communalist, neither that he is BJP, but that HE WORKS HARD AND IS DEVOTED TO HIS COUNTRY. If every Minister, every Chief Minister would follow his example and work hard and sincerely every day, India would take off and overtake China in the next five years.
But unfortunately, the Nehruvian legacy makes it that every Minister, including sometimes of the BJP, is too busy doling out favours, for selfish purposes, expecting something in return, dividing India on caste and religious basis, amassing black money either for himself or herself or for the party’s coffers, or utterly not doing much. And even the sincere ones have always an eye on the next state or general elections and how they can win votes, usually by pandering to the Muslim community,as the Muslim vote is playing more and more an important part in elections because of their growing numbers. This is Modi’s biggest and most difficult task, for corruption is not only taking bribes, but doing nothing for Mother India and everything for oneself or one’s party. FG

An open letter to @NarendraModi, from Francois Gautier

An open letter to the Prime Minister
Dear @NarendraModi,

I am sure you know the story of Prithviraj Chauhan & Muhammad Ghori of Afghanistan. Ghori attacked India multiple times, but he was first routed in present day Gujarat by Mularaja-II, then in Kayadara near Mount Abu, in 1178 A.D, where he was also resoundingly defeated. In the first battle of Taraori in 1191, Prithviraj Chauhan’s cavalry charged and wiped out the Afghan cavalry and captured Ghori. Ghori begged for his life and Prithviraj, like a true Hindu, allowed him to go, despite his generals begging him not to do so.

The very next year, however, Ghori re-attacked Prithiviraj with a stronger army and defeated him by attacking the Rajput army before daybreak. (Hindus followed a noble practice of battling only from sunrise up to sunset). The defeated Prithiviraj was taken as a captive to Ghor in Afghanistan, where first his eyes were burnt with red hot iron rods, as he looked at Muhammad Ghori straight into the eyes, and then executed. Thus ended the story of the brave but unrealistic Prithviraj Chouhan – the last Hindu ruler of Delhi. As you know, Mr Prime Minister, Delhi was to remain under Muslim rule for the next 700 years till 1857, and under British rule till 1947. And since 1947, until you came to power, it has been mostly ruled by the Gandhi dynasty, who think of India as their fiefdom, the same way the Moghols and the English did.

Is the story of Hindu blind and foolhardy tolerance over? Not at all! As you know, when Mr Vajpayee came to power, he gave orders to leave Sonia Gandhi alone. His Friday man, Brajesh Mishra, is even said to have rescued Rahul Gandhi, when he was caught in the US with a suitcase full of cash. Did it earn Sonia Gandhi’s gratitude? No ll! The BJP lost the next elections, as Prithrivaj lost his next battle to Ghauri and Mrs Gandhi efficiently and ruthlessly went all out after the BJP, and particularly against you, Mr @NarendraModi. She may have even known about the bombs in Bihar, during your election campaign, that could have killed you and jeopardized the entire future of India.

It is true, that for the moment you are at the top of your popularity and everything that you do is perceived positively by the public. Yet we know that all cannot be under your total control: the economy, the weather, the changing public moods can alter this wave. We have also seen also how your are not able to pass your important bills in Parliament, which has been held to ransom by Mrs Gandhi, who has only 44 MP’s, a hijack of the democratic system if there is one…

Since coming to power, you seem to be showing lenience and have no bitterness towards those who even savagely went after you when you were CM of Gujarat – including @SoniaGandhiGi, whom you greet on her birthday, as if she is your oldest friend. Nevertheless, it is my belief that as long as Sonia Gandhi is in India, she will be a danger to you, as she is the only one around whom not only the Congress can focus, but also other hostile forces: Sri Aurobindo insisted a lot on the role of ‘occult’ forces, that is asuric forces who use human beings to do harm. @SoniaGandhiG is such a person, and she did a lot of harm to India during the ten years when the @INCIndia Congress was in power when she acted like an empress, over the head of the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, though she was only an MP’s, like 525 others.

The idea is that when she goes abroad, which she does frequently and secretly, at the cost of the Indian taxpayer, she be declared persona non grata in India for all the money she stashed abroad, (I am sure Mr @AjitDoval can provide you will al the data). Facts should be then revealed to the press and you should keep away from the controversy and act as it was not in your hands. She is not a very courageous person, and I doubt she would fight at this stage. Her children should be left alone, as Rahul has already ridiculed himself countless of times and Priyanka has Robert Vadra around her neck.

I beg you Sir, do not to repeat the mistake of Prithviraj Chauhan, which cost India so dearly. You of all men, have understood the discourse of Lord Krishna to Arjuna: “that when you country is in danger, your borders are breached, your community ridiculed and ostracized, your people converted by the millions”, it is all right to use force and even sometimes violence.

Yours in Mother India’s love

THE BIG, HUGE, MASSIVE HYPOCRISY ABOUT #CONVERSIONBATTLE

We are witnessing all that Media and political hype about a handful of Christians being reconverted to #Hinduism. What a HUGE hypocrisy! Let us think rationally: there may have been a thousand no more, Christians reconverted – but how many #Hindus do you think were converted by sheer violence, most of the time, to #Islam in 10 centuries? FIFTY MILLION at least. And how many Hindus have been converted to #Christianity in the last 4 centuries? TWO MILLION??? After the Tsunami, I have seen with my own eyes, how the Christian groups within hours of the catastrophe were in every village, proposing food, money, clothes. Within days, they had offered new boats, houses, interest free loans. It is my estimate that 2% of the fishermen of the Tamil coast, from Chennai to Kanyakumari, were subsequently converted to Christianity – that’s a 300.000 people at a conservative estimate. So what’s the hullabaloo about #Bhajrang Dal, #VHP, reconversions?

As usual, because of the long colonization of India, we see that its intellectual elite, its journalists, some of its #Congress (and #BJP) politicians have kept up Macaulay’s spirit: bash up the Hindus whenever you get a chance and turn a blind eye on what the Christians and the Muslims do.

Wake-up O Hindus, you are an ancient Knowledge that has not only survived in spite of so many extremely violent assaults, but every persecuted religion has found refuge in India’s Bosom, thanks to the Hindus, from the Parsis, to the Jews, to the Tibetans today. So why should you allow yourselves to be persecuted now? Stand-up Hindus, you are the children of Vyasa, of Kalidasa, of the great Shankacharya, of Swami Vivekananda, of Sri Aurobindo. The time of India’s Renaissance has come, but it can only happen if you let go of your colonized mind , and you inferiority complex. You are great, generous, tolerant, you possess the last Knowledge in the world: “who am I, what happens after death? What is Karma? What is Dhama? What is Adharma”? Rise O Hindus, your time has come and don’t let the Bharka Dutt @Bdutt,  @Sardesairajdeep; @ShekharGupta’s of this nation brainwash you with their small, western borrowed, hollow & adharmic opinions.

 

Happy New Year India

KASHMIR AND DR KARAN SINGH

Once all the euphoria about the army saving the Kashmiris of the Valley evaporates, Kashmir will be back to square one and its youth will resume stoning the jawans. Indeed, There seems to be no solution to Kashmir. It also incarnates the irrevocable enmity between India and Pakistan: India will not surrender Kashmir, because she considers rightly that it has been part of her territory for 3000 years. Pakistan will not surrender its claim on the Valley, because it estimates that the Kashmir valley is a majority Muslim region and that under the (mad) logic of partition, it should have reverted to Islamabad. And both countries are trying by force, the one openly, the other covertly, to stake their claims on Kashmir. Thus, there is no issue, except war, a nuclear conflict maybe – and everyone will be the loser: who will have Kashmir then if there is nothing left of India and Pakistan?

All politicians have tried their hand at solving this problem and all have failed. Yet there is one politician in India, who not only understands all these intricacies, but who might be acceptable to both Hindus and Muslims of Kashmir: that is Dr Karan Singh. Dr Karan Singh is a much-misunderstood personality and it may be worthwhile to look at his life and achievements.

No doubt, he was born in a privileged family: son of the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir, Sir Hari Singh, and his lovely wife, Maharani Tara Devi, he saw the light in the prestigious Martinez hotel in Cannes, France. The birth of a Yuvaraj (heir apparent) was feted by the people of Jammu & Kashmir, whether Muslims or Hindus.

Yet, if you read carefully his biography, you will see that Dr Karan Singh, had a difficult life. Born a prince, yes, but with a strict and overbearing father, who allowed him to see his mother for only one hour every day, whereas the young Karan doted on her. In time, he also realized that all was not well between his mother and father and that they lived separate lives. He was then sent to public school where he got no privileged treatment. Finally, at the age of 18, the muscle on his right hip and leg began to decay and he had to undergo a major surgery, which was a traumatic experience for him. The operation involved permanent immobilisation of the hip joint through a bone graft and a six-inch metal pin, which kept him in bed for 18 months, in a lonely New York hospital. Dr Karan Singh would now limp for life, but he never complained about it and that did not stop him from playing tennis and campaigning tirelessly.

True, he became regent of Kashmir in 1949, but under difficult circumstances: his father, disagreeing with Nehru, left the State which had by then acceded to India, and Karan Singh was later appointed as Sadar-i-Riyasat and finally as Governor of Kashmir. His father’s shadow was not there anymore, but Nehru had replaced him and was sometimes an overbearing presence on the young man. In 1967, he finally came on his own, joined Mrs. Gandhi and later became the youngest union minister ever in her cabinet, being reelected 4 times as an MP from Udhampur. Today Dr Karan Singh, after having been a brilliant ambassador in the US, is chairman of the ICCR, while being involved in many trusts and charities.

It has been said sometimes that Dr Karan Singh is an indecisive man. This also far from true. He may belong to the Congress and not of the BJP, but he is one of the few politicians who has a deep understanding of Hinduism and who has remained faithful to his inclinations. Dr Karan Singh is the foremost expert in the world on Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy and he is at present chairman of the Auroville Foundation, the international city near Pondichery founded by the Mother and based on Sri Aurobindo’s vision of a new humanity.

Now for Kashmir. Dr Karan Singh is very clear about its history and its future: “The real problem with Kashmir, he says, started with my ancestors, the Doghras, mostly in the 19th century: by treaty, conquest, or inter-marriages, they created a state comprised of five major units, which are fundamentally very different from each other in terms of geography and ethnicity: the territory around Gilgit, which belongs basically to Central Asia; Ladhak, which is an extension of Tibet; what is today under Pakistan control around Muzarrafad, which is Punjabi Muslim; Jammu, which in essence belongs to Himachal Pradesh; and finally the valley of Kashmir, of course, which is Indian Muslim at 95 % and also belongs to the Kashmir Pandits before they had to flee”.

Dr Singh also emphasizes that the KP community never tried to rule Kashmir: “they were only the babus, the secretaries, the teachers, there might have been some exploitation, but on the whole they lived peacefully with the Muslims”.
Is Kashmir essentially an artificially-constructed entity then? “Yes, he replies, it is the exact replica of what was Tito’s Yugoslavia before it was broken in parts, or the Austrian empire, which was an amalgam of different states. All empires are artificial: look at the one Alexander created, or Ashoka’s empire, or Charlemagne’s… Often, they are also governed by non-local rulers: even my family was non-Kashmiri”.

When ones asks Dr Karan Singh if he has accepted Partition, he replies: “No, but today, there is certain logic to the split of Kashmir: two of the “foreign” portions – Punjabi Muslim Muzarrafad and Central Asian Gilgit – are with Pakistan; and the three “Indian” parts are with India : Jammu, which is 2/3 Hindu; Ladhak which is 55% Buddhist (and 45% Muslim); and the valley which is now 99% Indian Muslim”.

What is the solution then? “Since 1947, he smiles, Pakistan has fought four wars to regain Indian Kashmir, five, if you include the proxy war they are waging on us today. In my opinion, I don’t think they will ever succeed. The only solution is a European type of Union in the subcontinent. Look at France and Germany: they fought three wars over two centuries; France even fought a hundred years war with England and they are still bickering at each other over the EU, or the Euro! We only have been at it for 60 years. A Europe style type of union is a logic thing today. We could have a single rupee in South Asia, no borders, free trade… And a united Kashmir”…

Is it true that Muslims and Hindu leaders respect him ? “Kashmir has always been inclusive of all religions, answers the son of Kashmir. Vashnaism was born there, Sufism flourished there, the hard-line Sunnis of Pakistan have tried to change all this, I don’t think they have succeed, as today the Kahmiri Muslim is still more tolerant than his Saudi or Pakistani brother. Yes, I still feel deeply for Kashmir, I am an elder statesman, and have been in politics for nearly 60 years! “

So could Dr Karan Singh be the man of the moment for Kashmir, and solve an imbroglio which has eluded all Indian politicians? Will Destiny at last beckon this man of depth, who was never really been entrusted with responsibilities corresponding to his qualities ? He started with Kashmir and maybe he will finish his career with Kashmir, if the new government of Shri Narendra Modi is visionary and bold enough to entrust him with this task.

NOSTRADAMUS AND 2014 ELECTIONS

Michel de Nostredame, one of the world’s most famous authors of prophecies, was born in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France in December 1503. His family was originally Jewish, but had converted to Catholicism during the previous century. Nothing is known about his childhood, but at the age of fifteen he entered the University of Avignon to study for his baccalaureate. After little more than a year he was forced by the Plague to leave again. In 1529, after some years as an apothecary, he entered the University of Montpellier to study for a doctorate in medicine, and created a “rose pill” that was widely believed to protect against the plague. He is most famous for his book “Les Propheties”, which consists of rhymed quatrains (4-line poems) grouped into sets of 100, called Centuries. Nostradamus is credited with predicting the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Recently, French scholar Bamprelle de la Rochefoucault uncovered in an old trunk which had been sold for two francs in 1876 to an antics dealer of Bordeaux, a document written in Latin which he has attributed to Nostradamus. Curiously, there are two full pages, which deal at length with India, particularly with the Bharatiya Janata Party and the forthcoming general elections.

We are giving here the first words in Latin, along with a rough translation in English.

Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est vingtus unus centurus – Congressus oublium est …”
The Bharatiya Janata Party will come to dominate India in the 21st century, as the Congress, will slowly sink.
“Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est para Indus cognisant Indica tum est… ” The BJP will represent the aspirations of the Hindus, the overwhelming majority of India.

He goes on to explain who are the Hindus: “Indus terrum nostrum grandus homo manus onum unus familium planetum est. Indicus pax pacis terra est ferrum tempus…” They will be the most tolerant people, even in the Age of Iron, because they will still accept that God may manifest Himself at different times under different names, using different scriptures. Hence all persecuted people throughout the ages, will always found refuge in India, where they will practice their religion in peace.

Then Nostradamus makes his first prediction: “Indus cursum est trahisum nostrum est… Politicum Bharatus Indicus trahisum est…” But the curse of the Hindus will always be disunity and they will betray each other to the enemy again and again.

Next, another prophecy: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus tri pillarus est, Vajpayum, Advanum persistum est et Narendrum Modum. Vajpayum emergum est…” The BJP will have three pillars: AB Vajpayee, LK Advani and Narendra Modi. Eventually, Vajpayee will no longer have an active life, Advani will persist and Narendra Modi will be emerging.

He goes on: Narendrum Modum supremus chefum, ironus manus est et economicum grandum est…” Narendra Modi will raise himself as a national figure, not only because he is an iron man, but also because he has made of his state a model of economic efficiency.

Then comes another forecast,: “Duo millenum novo treizus, Jesus Christum postum, Advanum racontum narrates est Narendrum Modum grandus princeps est et Modum dux ducis rector est, sixtum legatus est…” Mr Advani will oppose Narendra Modi as BJP’s, Prime Ministerial candidate, but still the BJP will win the elections.

Nostradamus is not done, but thezre he may have got it wrong: “Congressus, corruptianum est,duo millennium terzus tombum est”. “The Congress Government will be riddled with so many corruption scandals, that it may fall before 2014”

And, he goes on: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus prnonuncio Ramum templum et Christanium consto est et gurum defendo est, kashmirum macto est…” The BJP will also make it known that it will build the Ram Mandir, protect temples, stop conversions and keep Kashmir for India.

Michel has also some forecast about foreign policy: “Chinum pugna est, Tibetum sanctum est, proctectiorum, amen ; pakistanus attakum est et ereptor latrunculus iugolo, caido.”
The BJP will reaffirm its commitment to eastern states (he probably meant Arunachal Pradesh), stand-up to China’s bullying, and support Tibet to counteract Beijing which is propping-up Maoist Nepal. It will swiftly punish Pakistan next time it attacks India by proxy.

However, added Senor Nostradamus: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus comes, comitus amicus desertus est congressus victis .” Only if the BJP stands true to the aspirations of its Hindu voters, it can come on its own at the Center.

Why? “Independantum Blancum copium est; necessarus changum indianus cumum facus est”… As India has heavily borrowed from the White Man (British?) at Independence, it will become necessary to “Indianise” the nation so that it may manifest again its true unique soul.

What is it? “Lex legis mutation, presidentum auctorita dato est, confuto desisto lex legis…” Introduce a common civil code, repeal false laws (article 370?), reform the Judiciary, change to a Parliamentary system, which will give true powers to the President who can nominate a Prime Minister from the majority.

Nostradamus goes on to explain why these changes are important: “Congressus niveus domina regnus, Indicus forcus inmicus est. Maurus, Christianus presentum est.” Under the reign of the White lady (Sonia Gandhi?) forces inimical to India have crept in. Madrasas have sprung up everywhere and so have churches that are converting by the thousands, Hindus gurus are jailed and mocked at…

Finally, Nostradamus has these concluding words: “Lentamentus, Indica Indus solvo eripio licens et quidnam et politus falsus, Dharmus popularus est. Srious Ravous Shankarous pranayamous, et novus spiritualitus ex religus planetum estblishum est”.
What was non-acceptable today will become politically correct tomorrow and Hindus will rule themselves again and reestablish Dharma in India.
“Scienta, garnutas, conscienta va do incedo totus el mundus rulus est, paxus, harmonius est.”
And the knowledge which was preserved in India for millenniums will spread in the world and bring peace, happiness and Harmony to All”.

THE BJP SHOULD NOT BE ARROGANT

Dear friends, there is no doubt that a BJP Govt – and Mr Narendra Modi as PM – will be a huge improvement for India & Hindus, here and worldwide. The Congress has dragged down this country and still does, selfishly, without any concern for the people that have elected them. Growth will dip soon at 4,5%, while China, which is India’s bitter and most dangerous enemy, is soaring without any competition worth the name.

At the same time, we have seen that the BJP, once in power, quickly forgets about its true goals, what the people who have elected them want & falls in the Nehruvian fold of power and its Delhi trappings. Already there is an arrogance in the BJP that ‘ we are already there’, while Rahul Gandhi and his mother are  quietly gaining votes with the rural innocent people of India, by TV adds, for example, which are simple, but have an appeal to the heart (however  false there are). Already, Mr Narendra Modi, has become unreachable, even to his staunch supporters. One understands that campaigning is his priority and that it is a tiring business. But if you look at the US elections, Obama’s campaigns, for instance, it’s as exhausting, there are even more meetings, in small towns, which Mr Modi avoids, America is as big and Obama himself shakes a million hands, eats hamburgers, carries babies, sings with children, which Mr Modi also avoids because of ‘security’ concerns. But Obama is probably  targeted even more than Mr Modi by Islamist terrorists.

This is why, if you love India, you should be all after your BJP local representatives, by voice, letters, mails, push them, prod them to remain true to your aspirations, your needs, your hopes. As for me, I have always been a journalist who stands by his intuitions, from moment to moment, without bending to the line of my editors or of any party, even the BJP. MY first love is Mother India, Her Welfare, Her protection in the face of so many threats She is facing at the moment. I know that Kejriwal is a Marxist at heart and does not have much love for the Hindus. At the same time, he is the only one who has the guts to fight corruption & the VIP system, which is corroding India – and as a journalist I have to praise him of that, even if his tools of dharna are ridiculed (but were they not Gandhi’s favorite tools?) even if it’s a losing battle. And mind you, the common people may vote for his party again in greater numbers. He is even admired abroad.

So friends, do not be mad at me if sometimes I criticize the BJP and Mr Modi. While I have a lot of respect for Narendra Modi, whom I met several times, while I am probably the only foreign journalist who has defended him for ten years, much before he was the PM candidate of the BJP (as I have defended Murli Manohar Joshi, Advani and Vajpayee in the 90’s), I have seen that Mr Modi is also like many other Indian politicians of the Congress and the BJP: he takes and gives back little. The art of Living Foundation of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, for instance, has worked tirelessly for Mr Modi, not only in Gujarat, but all over India. But Mr Modi in return, has never done anything for the Art of Living which does so much free sewa in India and needs support at all levels. As I said, I have written countless articles praising him in the French and even  US media, but my publisher Har Anand of Delhi, has been begging him for 6 months to release my latest book “a History of India as it Happened, not as it has been written”, a book that rewrites Indian History and is crucial to the thoughts of the Hindus, anywhere, anytime – but we never got an answer.

As Sri Aurobindo said in his Hour of God, this is the hour of the unexpected. Long Live Mother India
