Cauvery in Sixteen Tweets

img_20160913_111708Senior Advocate Supreme Court Mr. Sanjay Hegde has described Cauvery issue in sixteen tweets today morning & those are worth compiling at on one place for educating outraging inflammatory illiterates.


While #Cauvery violence is deplorable, media seems to have gone overboard in condemning only one state. Karnataka loses on perception.
Calling for pellet guns etc is overkill. Media also is Delhi centric & there’s schadenfreude when South is no better than North.
Media doesn’t realise, that water usage fights, are predicted to lead to wars in future. Karnataka like India is an upper riparian state.
Karnataka has 1 monsoon & 2 crops, TN has 3 crops & 2 monsoons. Water in Karnataka dams has to suffice for whole year including drinking water to B’lore.
In 1992, 2002 & 2016 TN has had same CM whose binary logic & imperiousness doesn’t help situation. Always a pound of flesh demanded.
In moments of distress a CM of Kar has to contemplate a thirsty Bangalore next April May vs drying crops in Thanjavur delta.
There have been moments when CMs especially from Mysore area contemplated resignation rather than letting down Karnataka populace.
In this situation national media demonising Karnataka, calling for pellet guns & presidents rule are doing no service to nation.
Cauvery distress flares up approximately once in a decade, when storage in reservoirs low. Technical solution for distress needs to be found
Distress sharing becomes acute only in 2 months of September & October because later NE monsoon sets in over TN. Karnataka doesn’t get it.
Distress management requires tact & statesmanship on both sides. What we see is brinkmanship, zero sum games & politicking.
Central governments stay out of distress management as long as they can, because they do not want to antagonise either state.
At central level Karnataka suffers because it’s 28 MPs split amongst parties while TN’s 40 MPs often from one party/alliance ADMK or DMK.
It is time for effective basin management of water deficit Cauvery basin especially in years of distress. Centre can’t sit on its hands.
Solution may take some work, violence is no solution especially when it targets the powerless. Prepare for rationing & mgmt in summer.
Nation needs to know if Bangalore & Karnataka will have drinking water this summer or are prayers for rain in catchment only option.

Distractions and Headline Management

“Hi sir, since your’e such a fierce critic, I assume this time our Vadra Exclusive gets some credit from you?”

When I was reading a tweet of Barkha Dutt, the line “I assume this time our Vadra Exclusive gets some credit” caused enough discomfort within me. She was asking Minhaz Merchant, acknowledgement of her efforts to expose Vadra benami property in London. When I heard her name first time in Radia Tapes, even then I felt she will do no wrong, but now Barkha, you let me down.

2016-06-04 06.25.35

Who taught you this kind of journalism Barkha? You broke the story, great! You are known for breaking greatest news breaks but never seen you fighting with trolls and news portal for credit & correctness. Your begging for credit to Minhaz Merchant is so ugly. Why all this? to get in good books of a man who incidentally happen to be PM of country, through brokers like Minhaz, Suhel and another one who happens to good for nothing FM of country!

I would really appreciate if someone does a job & follows it up until Vadra lands in Jail. But, since last few years what I see is Vadra too has become essential ingredient of Headline Management. Use him for the headline, do a story for two days and then run for another headline. The kind of cacophony coming out from your twitter handle is totally unpleasant and looks like you are doing overtime to please somebody.

From NDTV Group Editor you moved to Consulting Editor; are you thinking, this regime of illiterate & clueless will be there for another three years or they may get elected again, so what next? World will not end, don’t worry, you have to do things you are known for doing it fearlessly and that is “Journalism”

You broke the story, leave it in public domain and move on. Fight with news portals over who is correct, begging for credit to irrelevant people; doesn’t suits to Barkha Dutt I knew. Take it or leave it.

“I am an artist I was shooting & was not aware about it. Akhilesh Yadav should take care of law & order: Hema Malini”

Hema Malini’s statement shows utmost insensitivity and indifference towards people. She was involved in a car mishap where a man died and she left the scene without caring for the daughter of dead man! Nothing wrong in her statement, “Akhilesh Yadav should take care of law & order”. It gives me immense hope that someday she will ask “Narendra Modi should have taken care of law & order in 2002” and Narcissist must come out of self & selfie fever to take care of “Law & Order of India”

Of course Akhilesh administration is responsible for all shortfalls but Hema Malini, you are elected MP of Mathura, can’t you at least show some sensitivity and empathy?  The fault lies in current party leadership and is not fault of Hema Malini alone. The party with difference has now became party with indifference. They don’t care who suffers and who gets killed, they care only, is this case help us to get one step closer to power somewhere? That’s what exactly a Gujarat Model in Delhi now.

Thanks to TV Media, Mathura tragedy for turning it in troll fight to conclude who is responsible, Akhilesh or Hema Malini! This shows the maturity of current generation journalists. Discussion should have been on what Govt and intelligence agencies of this country were doing when followers of Baba Jai Gurudev were stocking killer artillery & infantry? Was it all instant reaction? Imagine if this would have happened at some Madrasa or Church or Gurudwara! Surprising as no intellectuals discussing & debating “What about Mathura”.

“MEA to approach UK for Lalit Modi’s extradition after ED response – The Economic Times”

Since 2014 we hear same news by rearrangement of few phrases. We have a BJP CM in Rajasthan who is close pal of Lalit, who helps him to become President of Rajasthan Cricket Association. We have an efficient & kind heart EAM in center who helps fugitives on humanitarian ground. Note that, if extradition happens, it will be also on humanitarian grounds. Though LKM trolls Clueless FM very badly but he is a good friend of Narcissist and  funded BJP campaigns, so be rest assured that nothing is going to happen as per rule of law with LKM. If any notice issued to him will be termed as error by Jr. Officer same as we allowed Vijay Mallya to flee.

“Modi govt’s second anniversary, Italian marine gets bail”

This was the biggest gift in waiting for India, specially for people of Kerala. For one head, we will bring ten heads, foul mouths bowed down and lastly blamed it to International pressure and Supreme Court of India. The Govt of power-hungry crooks, gave a declaration which can be termed as “No Objection Certificate”; in Supreme Court when court asked them what is their stand on Italian Marines. This was perfect barter deal between crooks of India and Italy. One need to recollect Augusta Westland and thereafter total silence in media about both issues. Why? and friends in media say, they are journalist! may be but think do you rise in your own eyes at the end of day? No. I know.

The so-called journalists must answer one day to nation, how you misled the country. Narcissist blown the trumpet for six long hours and you telecast it live on news channels, not one MSM guy has guts to question wastage of tax payers money? I got responses on my tweet that, it was profitable because feed has been sold to other channels and plenty of income came to Parasar Bharti. Losers, answer me, have you elected a PM Neta or Nautanki Abhineta?

Flipkart and L&T already shown the doors to fresh graduates before taking them in, and our PM claims “Yuvaon ki sarkar” raised fuel costs by 2.5, service tax to 15% and claims “Garibon ki sarkar”. Cheerleaders at 9:00PM always shout “Nation wants to Know” on non-issues but they are in fact far away from reality.

Honest journalists are rare species now and when we see someone going off track, it gives pain. Hope, people gone stray will be back on track and rise in own eyes!

Good Bye for now!

Story of 3 Illiterates

About after two years, BJP felt need of literate person to represent party in parliament and initiated a welcome step which turned out to be a big disappointment as BJP sent Subramanian Swamy to Rajya Sabha. You already have Smriti Irani and Arun Jaitely there then what is need to send Swamy there? Now there is competition between three that who will talk more absurd.

Living to the reputation, Ms. Smriti Irani opened the week with making an absurd statement. She said, “Varsities are Pandora’s Box, can’t waive punishment of JNU students”. She proved once again why having her as HRD Minister is insult to Republic of India. It’s surprising that, those journalist who take her each word and print next day, why they didn’t ask meaning of “Pandora Box” to her? I request journalists to give it a try next time, answer will surely entertain you for many days thereafter.

When Smriti Irani says, Varsities are “Pandora’s Box”; she doesn’t know the meaning of it. I would request her to reveal who is Pandora by the way now in India? Is she calls herself “Pandora” and Varsities are her “Box” which has all the evils of world? Is that the reason, she never been to University? I urge her to enroll in any such “Pandora’s Box” of her choice and stay there observing their research, studies, debates and class rooms; I guarantee her that she surely will accept, what she missed in life i.e. Quality Education

You may have been connected to Idiot Box for most of your life time, that doesn’t mean that you should speak like an idiot coming out of it! For God sake, Varsities are not Pandora’s Box, those are the centers where thinking human beings are created.

Subramanian Swamy on the other corner, with so many failed prophecies on his account from Economy, Petrol Price, Kiran Bedi as Delhi CM to Nitish Kumar losing and BJP winning with full majority etc has found new target in Raghu Ram Rajan. Earlier his tweets used to indicate his indirect demand that he should be made Minister of Finance but now he is eyeing for the post of RBI Governor.

Raghu Ram Rajan is not fit to be RBI Governor, said Swamy! In his opinion, “the RBI governor is not apt for our country. His move to increase the interest rates, so as to cut down inflation and stabilize the economy, has backfired and has badly affected the nation”.

If Indian economy is still sustaining then it is because of robust foundation laid by Dr. Manmohan Singh and current controlling measures being brought in system by RBI Governor. I ask you Subramanian Swamy, show me one action done by your clueless FM and directionless Government to strengthen economy? Answer is “Big Zero”

For you Raghu Ram Rajan is responsible for inflation & unstable economy! Then what is job of clueless FM? attending National Film Awards & keep ranting on all issues except Economical matters! If anything good exists for India at the moment, it is Raghu Ram Rajan. For your information Mr. Swamy, Modi has selected Irani, Jaitley, Rajnath; all clueless & incompetent. Now you are latest addition to same list.

Arun Jaitely pops up from National Film Awards hangover and says, “Judiciary is destroying legislature brick by brick”. Do you know Mr. Jaitely, what is meaning of Legislature?

You played with Law & Power everywhere in Delhi, Bihar, Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Legislature is Law Making Body but since you guys came in “Power” it became Law Breaking Body. You want Judiciary to remain silent while you do your all Power Crimes! Irrespective of what you say, India feels that Judiciary must destroy existing contaminated legislature atom by atom to safeguard national interests.

There is not a singly stock in Nifty50 in upward trend since you took over. Why don’t you work on Economic matters and leave “Law & Justice” to the minister who is accountable for it? If I remember, you are only in news for either attending National Film Awards or defending someone from your party.

From defending jobs you do, I remember, your latest job was to defend PM’s Degree. You along with Amit Shah came in press conference waving PM’s educational qualifications! It was hilarious. You both guys lack credibility, one is known for fudging GDP & FDI data and other was Tadipar from own state. It’s not surprising though how Modi chose you two to do a press conference on his degree, he has already reached to extreme by electing Smriti as HRD Minister.

Bhola Singh, a BJP MP is absolutely correct when he said, Western India lacks brains! It is Western India who elected Modi, Parrikar and Fadnavis.

Illiteracy is bad and somehow current government is proud of that.

Agents of Pseudo Tolerance

As the handle @MirrorShourie suspended once again due to reporting of some illiterates of ruling party & over-literate people sitting in Twitter Support, repost of old blog.

Criticism is most effective feedback to any Government, and if you are world largest Democracy, it’s your prime duty to collect feedback and correct the course.

Does this Government of our present time follow it? No. Not at all.

There has been enough talk in past few months over tolerance & intolerance. You will be glad to know Sycophant supporters of current regime invented new kind of Tolerance, it is pseudo tolerance.

Pseudo tolerance is nothing but harping on roads with banners that “we are tolerant” and after the march get back to the job to kill the voices which gives you valuable feedback on your short comings.

You ask your paid trolls to trend “ModiSlapsChina” and go all over with hashtag that how MMS was ineffective & how Modi gave it back to China by giving visa to Dolkun Isa. Next day India wakes up to the news that India cancelled the visa given to Dolkun Isa. Now if Government sponsored headline management was a day old story, you have to pay it by accepting criticism very next day with hashtag “ModiBowsToChina”. This hashtag was  not to ridicule PM of India, it was a feedback to Government to control their trolls by spreading absurd news in media under project headline management!

I just tried to log in to my twitter account & found it in “Suspended” status. Do I need to guess who are the guys behind my twitter handle @shourie_arun ‘s suspension? These are same pseudo tolerant people. They lost after mere 128 tweets from it, I will tweet same way till 2019, being a responsible citizen, it’s my duty to highlight Government failures & provide accurate feedback to correct the course. I will keep giving the feedback I want to give.

One may say it may be the case of identity theft but for those Divyang guys must learn reading & meaning of “Parody”

I have received many abusive responses on twitter but never indulged in war of words, just shared what I have to say without any abusive words.

What to do with feedback is Government’s business. They demonstrate tolerance, accept the feedback & correct the course or remain Pseudo Tolerant and kill any sane voice critiquing them by getting it suspended.

Social media must also understand there are compulsions of normal life and that is why people choose to share their thoughts from “Parody” Handles or “Anonymous” handles. Before suspending check is the handle really worth suspending? On this occasion Twitter also played as agent of Pseudo Tolerance.

The one & only twitter handle I had which I can’t access right now. Requesting readers of this blog to tweet the link on twitter for people to know story from my side.

Regards: Will meet surely again…
