The Curious Case of Kulbhusham Jadhav ICJ Verdict

Saving a dead man

International Court of Justice where Kulbhushan Jadhav case was pleaded by India to treat him according ot Vienna Convention

The Government of India’s bold manoeuvre to fight Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav’s case in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is laudable. The fact that the ICJ stayed the death sentence of Jadhav has ensured that India has achieved it’s objectives. Not the objectives that the fake media is bragging about such as :

  •        India has defeated Pakistan
  •        Jadhav has been saved
  •       The world courts will punish Pakistan

The above idiotic nonsensical narratives being run perpetually by Indian media have nothing to do with Indian Government’s real achievements namely:

The Government has shown that it cares for the life of it’s citizens – even those accused of allegedly spying are not expendable assets.

It has risked deviating from India’s archaic foreign policy of trying to resolve matters bilaterally with Pakistan and achieved some measure of success at a multilateral forum. It however remains to be seen whether this is a good move or a bad move in future areas of conflict with Pakistan who may now be inclined to pay India back in the same currency. India’s image was further vulnerable on account of the fact that the enforcement of ICJ verdicts on such matters in the past have been very weak.

It has also forced a conflict between the military and executive arms of Pakistan, forcing any further action by Pakistan into a lose lose situation. If Jadhav is executed (some allege he is already dead), Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif gets red faced at international forums and may be exposed to sanctions. It will also make it difficult for China to continue offering unquestioning support to it’s all weather ally. If Jadhav’s execution is delayed and India is allowed counsellor access to him , Pakistan’s military courts (the Field General Court Marshall) are snubbed. Pakistan has already issued a statement to the effect that the ICJ verdict is not applicable to them.Predictably, reactions to the ICJ verdict within Pakistan have been ranging from denying the ICJ jurisdiction to expressing disappointment with the Pakistan representation at the ICJ.

WannaCry – So who really made us Cry?

WannaCry or WannaCrypt has caught the attention of the world. Here are 10 salient things you need to know:

  1. The WannaCry ransomware attack/ WannaCrypt/WanaCrypt0r 2.0/ Wanna Decryptor is an ongoing worldwide cyber-attack of the WannaCry ransomware computer worm. It  targets and spreads by exploiting a vulnerability in  Microsoft Windows operating system.
  2. Since the start of the attack on 12th May 2017, it is said to have affected more than 2,30,000 computers worldwide.

Timeline

  1. The vulnerability known as “Eternal Blue” and  “DoublePulsor Backdoor” were tools developed by the U.S National Security Agency (to spy on people) but were released online in April in the latest of a series of leaks by a group known as the Shadow Brokers, who claimed that it had stolen the data from the Equation cyber espionage group. Once installed WannaCry uses these tools to spread through local networks and remote hosts that have not been updated with the latest updates and infect other systems.
  1. Microsoft had released a criticalpatch on 14th March 2017 but many organizations had not installed it. People usually avoid updates to continue to use their legacy software and also possibly since Microsoft updates are believed to contain spyware to gather data about the usage habits of people. But now, everyone is rushing to install the patch even if it means Microsoft can catch them n@ked.

Why MCD election results may effectively be Delhi’s Obituary

Why MCD election results may effectively be Delhi’s obituary

New Delhi, capital of India and a union territory has long remained an administrative conundrum. A complex web of authorities and constitutional posts have been created to run the city’s various departments each with responsibilities which often intertwine in a manner that the citizen can never really hold anyone truly and solely accountable for anything, be it essential civic services, law and order, traffic, medical facilities, education etc.

Such an administrative nightmare of multiple power centers not only creates apathy and confusion but also corruption, the hallmark of this great city’s work culture. Money is the only fuel and grease which runs the governmental machinery, something which Delhi’s elite have ready access to and which Delhi’s poor and neglected aspire to.

This reality is flawlessly reflected in the fact that only some areas like Lutyen’s Delhi being ultra modern with the best of amenities, while others remain loathsome with shoddy infrastructure and living conditions.But no one really cares. Ministers, Councillors and Government officials (Babus), who have access to plush air conditioned offices, lush greenery, clean roads, good schools, medical facilities, bribes and expensive gifts  and good life in general on a silver platter sponsored by the tax payer’s money find little incentive to change things.

The only time the tables are reversed to some extent are during elections when the politicians need Delhi’s large migrant and underprivileged populations to maintain the status quo. The standard operating procedure for the politicians and elite is to lure the common man with incentives, castles in the air and perhaps some goodies to get back to their normal manner of functioning.

However, the recent elections for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, also known locally as the Most Corrupt Department was potentially a turning point to change the state of affairs.The reason for this was the enormous stakes so many political parties had invested in it.A correct verdict by the people was crucial to stall the decay of Delhi.

The BJP wanted to show that the “Modi Wave” was alive and kicking, that even after having done a pathetic and shameless job of heading the MCD for the past 10 years, that people would still be hypnotized by the person of the Prime Minister and vote them to power again. To be fair to the Prime Minister, he had all the old existing MCD  candidates removed and introduced fresh faces. Further, the integrity and dedication of the Prime Minister and his team cannot be doubted. So the BJP had made out a case that since Prime Minister Narender Modi had just recently  come to the helm of affairs in the BJP, that things would be different. They sought the people’s vote under the pretext that while the BJP had done a shameful and pathetic job in running the MCD in the past 10 years, that they were now ready to improve their performance, especially in the light of Prime Minister Narender Modi’s vision. While people brought into this message and have indeed voted the BJP to majority, it is already evident that many in the BJP have already starting misinterpreting the people’s mandate.

Some in the BJP started saying that the victory meant that the people of Delhi actually endorsed the corrupt dysfunctional MCD of the past decade, while others attributed the victory to the campaigning by singer actor Manoj Tiwari, brought in the BJP to capture the purvanchali voters. Still others attributed this to the misgovernance by the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

If the above reasons for BJP’s victory are accepted, then the results are truly abysmal for Delhi’s future. For it would show that Delhi’s voters are so gullible that they failed to understand that the Chief Minister had no active role to play in the MCD’s functioning, or that they are easily swayed by a personality that can sing and dance or that they have accepted corruption and apathy as a way of life.

The Indian National Congress wanted to show that they were on their way to re-establish themselves. With 10 years of anti incumbency going against the BJP, their job at winning should have been fairly easy. However, the fact that they could not win shows their failure to put up a credible opposition and offer the voter a better alternative.

HOW DAVID GUETTA GOT “SUNBURN”T IN BANGALURU, MUMBAI,DELHI SHOWS

Pierre David Guetta is a soul stirring DJ,record producer, remixer, and songwriter. But then it’s best if we leave it at that. Turning him into some kind of source for salvation of humanity is going overboard. 

But that’s exactly what most of the Indian media is trying to make him out to be. Under what appears to be a sinister, malafide, concocted scam, most of the Indian Media teamed up with the organizers Sunburn(an “intellectual property” of Percept Limited, who in itself is a media giant), and unleashed a tirade of headlines to defame the administration, police and the mindset of the people of Bengaluru. Here’s how it went:


Indian media does it once again. Like foolish, spineless, corrupt ,  headline and TRP seekers that they are, they pounced onto Bengaluru’s administration , police and reputation with a vengeance. The matter concerned the postponement of a David Guetta show .  

While the real reason for denial of permission by the local police was that the organizers got delayed in seeking police permission and had already sold the tickets, our media and its breed of brainless spin doctors immediately started spinning their web of lies.

LIE #1

The event was cancelled by authorites .

FACT

An event is deemed cancelled only if it was initially approved. The organizers had never been given approval in the first place because the organizers had never sought prior approval.

Secondly, the authority only asked them to reschedule the event, since the organizers approached them at the last minute. Since David Guetta could not give another date from his busy schedule, the organizer was forced to cancel the show and not the authority as falsely claimed by the organizer

LIE #2

2.The organizers initially had the permission but were suddenly denied permission later, at the last minute.

FACT

 The organizers Sunburn never had the permission. In a display of blatant arrogance and incompetence, Sunburn only thought it fit to seek police permission at almost the very last minute!!!

LIE #3

3.Police had asked organizer to cancel the show, since they were not confident to protect the citizens of Bengaluru.

FACT

In order to make proper preparations for any big event, Police needs some time to assess a matter before granting permission. The organizer had approached police for permission only 2 days before the show(effectively giving only 1 days time) . Other events which were already taking place or scheduled with permission, obviously, take priority. Hence the argument that police was not confident of providing protection and control was totally baseless and biased.

SUNBURN, the organizers may have messed up big time and could be even liable to compensate people heavily for the delay in approaching the police to seek permission. The reason could be, like I mentioned, arrogance and incompetence.

Arrogance: 

David Guetta is a powerful popular celebrity and extremely busy. Sunburn probably only managed to get a fixed date from David Guetta. In their arrogance, they probably assumed that the Bangaluru authorities will give them permission to host the event even if they approached them in the middle of the night.Since permission was denied, they probably chose second line of attack to try to pressurize the authorities through media reports, hoping to absolve themselves of any blame and to get the authorities to grant permission.

Such is the blatant arrogance of Sunburn, that according to some reports they have even applied last minute for the David Guetta show in Mumbai and Delhi also, after advertising extensively about it and after selling the tickets. In all probability the Mumbai and Delhi show venue and timings would also be affected


It seems that in 2017,some people still carry the mentality India is slave to the West and therefore they do not consider it necessary to obtain permissions from the Indian authorities.I am so glad that they have been proved wrong. 

Incompetence:

It is the organizer’s responsibility to ensure all permissions in time before publicizing and selling tickets for a show.Approaching authorities at the last minute demonstrates gross incompetence.

In order to escape the blame, a sinister plot appears to have been hatched to shift the blame onto the police and administration.

Leading the barrage of unverified, sensational charges against Bengaluru were anchors like  Padmaja Joshi of Headlines Today. She linked this to the event of molestation on 31st December in Bengaluru (Which the police is already investigating) and started hosting lengthy discussions including entertaining calls from “viewers.”

Most channels were doing it. I only singled her out since I respect her and expected better journalism from her. Behaving like a chameleon, by changing her “righteous integrity” stand to “I am just a messenger, just doing my job, reporting both points of view” was rather lame.

Most news channels created hashtags immediately and the blitzkrieg against India’s police, administration and “sick” mindset was set in motion. “What impression will the world get about India?”, one of the anchors echoed mindlessly.

While they kept on ranting,  the police clarified that the organizer Sunburn never had permission in the first place.Immediately the producers of headlines today cut short the special show criticizing Bangaluru.

 Shailendra Singh of SUNBURN changed his aggressive stance. He started talking about how, like cricket, music is the soul of India and about how such things happen and why, no one should be held accountable.This was in direct contradiction to SUNBURN’s official statement directly holding the “authorities” accountable, while appearing to be very patronizing towards them.

On knowing the real truth when a citizen called and confronted Headlines Today T.V. anchor Padmaja Joshi as to why she was creating hype against the Bangaluru administration she muted him,  squeeled some opinion and the topic was changed. The tickers on times now and headlines today continued to blame Bangaluru(administration, police and people’s mindset) for this whole ordeal.

The Matrix Architecture

The Matrix Architecture

In the previous blog, I mentioned that a lot of the agencies which exercise control over the Common Man are perceived to be the Matrix. But I believe this is not so. There are mere conduits for the Matrix to exercise and enforce control protocols.
Here is an illustrative example of how the Matrix operates. It’s only a small part of the total picture.

Picture4

 

Now there are a couple of points to be noted in the above animation and you are free to keep pressing the play button to observe those points.It should be also understood that “Common Citizen” does not necessarily mean an entity which is not one of the agencies. Common Citizen includes both the agencies and those not part of it. Those who are under complete control of the Matrix as well as those who are under partial or no control of the Matrix.

You would also have noticed that no Religious authority or institution has been mentioned here. The reason for this is that some information and knowledge mentioned in Religious books actually contain scripts to free oneself from the Matrix. On realizing their potent strengths, the Matrix managed to acquire control over some of the propagators or influential speakers and twist and corrupt the original scripts through misinterpretations. This led to the exact effect the Matrix sought – people started looking at the teachings with some cynicism, leading to loss of faith and confidence in themselves.

1. Inter connectivity : 

The first is the obvious high level of interconnection between all agencies. This interconnection is absolutely essential for the Matrix to implement its protocols. The model above should be visualized in at least 3 dimensions at a minimum to fully appreciate it. It should also be noted that the above graphic is only a tiny illustrative example and that the interconnections are even more intricate.
Let us say , the inter connectivity shown between Corporates and Common Man.
This doesn’t have to be as illustrated : Corporate –> Media –>Common Man or Corporate –>Banks –>Common Man, but the linkages exist directly as well , so , Corporate –>Common Man linkage does exist but is not shown here in this partial graphic. In any case, the Corporates manage to exercise better implementation of embedding protocols through agencies such as the Media(advertisement) and the Banks(salaries/ loans).

Surviving THE MATRIX

Surviving THE MATRIX

So in my previous blog I talked about how you may have been affected by the Matrix.Is there a way not to be affected? Is it possible to remain within the Matrix and not be affected by it, or does one have to leave it altogether? Do you have to die to unplug yourself? How many NEOs are out there in real life?

I have wondered how does one successfully navigate through it, without being detected or becoming a victim of it?

To understand this, one has to first understand the Matrix. In the first part of this blog, I will try to do that.

First of all you have to be really really sure that you want out. I mean , some people really don’t find it so bad to be part of the Matrix.There are so many people who have been so completely conditioned to be part of the Matrix that they may feel incredibly uncomfortable leaving it. So basically you have four choices in this regard:
1. Be a part of the Matrix and continue things as they are.
2. Try to break away from the Matrix but suffer every day of your life.
3. Successfully liberate yourself from the Matrix, but wonder what now?
4. Be a part of the Matrix and successfully negotiate through it like NEO, using its rules to your own advantage.
But  the obvious question that comes to mind is , what is the Matrix? The movie offers some clues but it’s not entirely accurate….Click here for the rest of the article
THE MATRIX : SIGNS YOU MAY BE PART OF IT (32)

THE MATRIX : SIGNS YOU MAY BE PART OF IT (32)

Keeanu Reeves actor waking up from Matrix with wires attached (modified)
Are you caught in the Matrix?Are you wiling to be unplugged?

So, most of the earth’s population with access to T.V. and internet has probably watched the movie Matrix. In case you haven’t here is what it’s about .

Even though it’s a work of fiction, some people started wondering whether humanity is really plugged into an artificial reality program in which you are only made to believe that you are in control of things, but in reality it’s someone else, (it was a machine in the movie) which is projecting a reality in your brain and using you and your energy for it’s benefit.

Well, here  is my take on certain aspects of this concept. Take a look and see if some of you feel you are in a similar situation. Here is the list :

1. You feel restless without your mobile phone and/ or internet.

2. You feel depressed when no one reacts to your post on social media, but elated when you get a like or retweet or a friend request from a person you know nothing about.

3. You are stuck in a job/course you don’t like but you feel you have to do it.

4. You disagree with someone’s opinion but you don’t express it for fear of sounding uncool and intolerant. 

5. You really didn’t like that movie but chose to say you loved it, since your friends did.

6. You believe all the information provided by the Media is the truth and also believe that there is no such thing as propoganda or paid news.That the mainstream media is unbiased and independent and that they report stories as soon as they get to know about them.

7. You refuse to believe that your favorite sports person or movie actor is appearing in an advertisement is simply doing his/ her job to make money and blindly buy the product they endorse.

8. You believe that six pack abs and huge muscular body can be achieved in 60 days, without professional help of diet, medication and professional coaches.

9.You believe that the more your six pack abs appear, the healthier you are.

10. You love the fact that a cell phone tower has been installed near your house so now you will get better reception.

11. You believe that spending time on your laptop is good for you and cool, instead of spending it talking to someone or going out to see new places.

12.You are more focused on whether a movie actor is really dating someone or whether your team will win a match, rather than your own health and well being of the environment.

13. You think eating junk food and eating supplements is better than eating whole nutritious food.

14. You believe that traffic congestion, pollution and sensory overload are normal part of life.

15. You get impatient and depressed when things don’t happen at the click of a button.

16. You are totally engrossed with…READ THE REST OF THE LIST HERE
