Delhi Ka King Kaun?

Delhi Ka King Kaun? 



Bhiku Matre didn't find any competition when he claimed himself the king of Mumbai in the movie Satya but here in Delhi the situation is different and the public of Delhi is confused about 'Who is the king of Delhi?' The problem they never faced since 1993 the time Delhi was granted partial statehood and held its first assembly election. We never heard news about tiff between elected CM (Chief Minister) and Central Government appointed LG (Lieutenant Governor). Their fights have made public servants directionless and people of Delhi hopeless. 

Arvind Kejriwal who doesn't fit in the public known definition of political leader never in his election campaign speeches explained that he required full statehood before working on his poll promises. Either he was unaware of the procedure of working in Delhi or he was just luring voters at that time with fake promises. I am not saying that he is not doing anything actually I want to praise him for increase in education and health budget but the scenario he has created to expose the wrong doings of Modi government is not suitable for a person sitting on CM's chair. I am sure there are many better ways to handle the situation than to ridicule a constitutional post.

Najeeb Jung who was known as a sincere educationist and bureaucrat before being LG of Delhi has now reduced him as the puppet of Central government. It is an open secret that his actions are directed by Home Ministry and whatever hurdles he has created in functioning of an elected government are political motivated. He must resolve the differences amicably because at the end people matters the most in a democracy, the decisions taken by Mr Kejriwal wasn't for his benefit but for the benefit of the people of Delhi and raising objections to his every action is demeaning a constitutional post in people's eye.

I am personally not in the favor of decorative posts of LG's, Governor of states and President as they don't serve any help in the functioning of government instead I believe in a people powered body at that level with more powers to sign and decide for the bills send to them thus to make the process more democratic with the involvement of citizen. Anyways this is another issue of discussion now both the center and state government must understand that only people of the country are King in a democracy and their interest shouldn't hurt in their battle of supremacy. I don't understand why Narender Modi who fought a case against the Governor for unnecessary interference in government functioning as a CM of Gujarat now believes that Lt. Governor is the government in Delhi. Only Delhihites are Kings/Queens of Delhi.

  1. I always liked the thought behind kejriwal's actions, but sometimes I feel that he has simply no idea on how to approach a problem and solve it. His intentions are good, but the actions are very doubtful. I hope he improvises before its too late.
    Nice article.

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
