The King of Good Times

The King of Good Times


There is a Hindi song from the movie Heer -Ranjha 'Yeh Duniya Ye Mehfil Mere Kaam Ki Nahin' which means that 'I have nothing to do with this world and the people here' strangely this line gives different inspiration to different people in the same situation. The indebted farmers commits suicide leaving this world and all its miseries while the industrialists left the country to live luxurious life in another part of the world when unable to pay their debt mocking and laughing the pathetic system. 



The 'King of Good Times' Vijay Kingfisher Mallya is the latest in the list who left India after unable to pay bank dues of around Rs 7800 crore. His airline company is also defaulter for not paying salary of its employees. These employees are feeling stranded in this situation while the chairman remains busy in IPL and calendar launch. When State Bank of India announced Vijay Mallya as willful defaulter and freeze the payment of around Rs 500 crores he received after selling his share in UB Group to a European country fled away fearing arrest after Enforcement Directorate's notice. 

Vijay Mallya is not the only one who hasn't paid bank dues but there are many more like him. Shockingly public sector banks who send goons at your doorstep for non payment of loan amount has written off Rs 114000 crore of loans of industrialists in last ten years in different parts of the country. These same banks have pressurized farmers for loan payment which forced them to end their lives. One lakh fourteen thousand crore is not a small amount bank officials must have gulped millions to write off these loans. 

The Supreme Court has recently ordered the center government to prepare the list of loan defaulters of Rs 500 crore and more. The court has also questioned how after such big losses these people running there businesses smoothly. This looks like a big bank scam to me and I wouldn't be surprise if there is a political backing in it. Banks should take stricter actions against all billionaire loan defaulters. ED, External Affair Ministry and Finance Ministry must ensure that these criminal offenders not leave the country without payment of dues. These King of Good Times are giving bad time to there employees and to the nation's economy. They must be harshly punished to set an example for others or else there would be more Modis and Mallyas living abroad happily laughing at weak legal system.

  2. Today it was in news that police had beaten a farmer who couldn't repay a loan of 1 lakh, I wonder of the same people can even lay a hand on this robber. For common man they wouldn't pass even paltry amount and for this person they have sanctioned thousands of crores. There should be strict action against the officials involved.

  3. Maliya goes bankrupt but he stays a billionaire. A farmer goes bankrupt and he commits suicide. Maybe a businessman is more important than a farmer.

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…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
