Here Charitable Individualism is the key!… nothing less.

Hello world!


Hi Guys,

This relates to india. The burning issues are floods in Bihar & acquisition of land in Singur. The issue realating to Singur is best explained through an analogy by regaling a story from the Bible.

There was a king called AHAB who badly wanted to have the VINEYARD of NABOTH for the purposes of planting herbs. Naboth refused, Ahab’s countenance fell, his queen Jezebel couldn’t take that the most powerful man was not man enough to take what he wanted to have, thru guile, enticement or force.

She devices a plan with the elders of the area, gets NABOTH implicated in a case of blasphemy and gets him stoned and thus hands over the vineyard for the use of AHAB, the king of Israel. So much for the manliness- leaving it in the hands of the wicked woman to obtain what he wanted.

In India there was a FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT granted by the constitution when the constituion was adopted by the people of India. In the name of stripping the Zamindars and other land lords and princes of large land holdings, the right was down graded to that of a constitutional right. Subsequently , through the LAND ACQUISITION ACT 1894 (?), the right to acquire was given to the government to acquire land on behalf of Companies.

NOW, like JEZEBEL, the govt of west bengal has acquired land forcibly from individuals and handed it over to the already cash rich TATA (AHAB)!!

The issue boils down to whether the government should interfere in the affairs between individuals who hold small parcels of land on the one side and big businesses on the other, all in the name of DEVELOPMENT. I am sure that if the NANO factory did not come up in Singur, it could have been brought up in Uttarakhand, Orissa etc.. Earlier in the name of liquidating the concentration of wealth (LAND) in the hands of the few we raped the FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT. Now in the name of DEVELOPMENT we are doing the same.

The only difference is that, earlier the RICH landlords were involved and now the poor farmers are involved. Earlier we rid ourselves of a precious right without compunction, now we are impotent to revive the dead right, even though we know that the poor are involved. Are we being judgemental that the poor have only got this much right to demand for their land and when they want more, it is nothing but greed? Nay, the man who gets a life-time opportunity to make a bargain with the company, should be protected by the GOVERNMENT to drive as hard a bargain as possible. If the Jezebelite Government feels for the Ahab like companies, it should allot land which is in its own title, possession and enjoyment.

The pretext of DEVELOPMENT should not be exalted in this vast country merely for a 1000 acres, especially at the cost of the original FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT.

LET US RESTORE THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS GRANTED BY THE MOST LEARNED CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY, AND NOT BECOME PAWNS IN THE HANDS OF THE EXPEDIENT POLITICIAN!! LONG LIVE THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS IN INDIA IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM AND CONTENT.

  1. Our fundamental rights have been f**K’d left right and centre under the disguise of directive principles of state policy. However, In the present context, we have to consider the economic growth vis-a-vis individual right(especially a feeble right as right to property).

    The point of allowing farmers to enjoy the life-time opportunity of bargain with the corporates is well taken. Indeed, they can’t be expected to part with their lands at a throw away price.

  2. Dear Vik,
    Economic growth is restricted to pockets in our great country. INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS shud be protected at all costs. An Indian shud have the feeling that certain of his rights SHALL not be taken away except for his misdeeds. That certainty is the cornerstone to the PRIDE of being an INDIAN.
    I have seen many VAIN Indians but not many who are PROUD, because they DON’T have inalienable rights.
    Right to property is no FEEBLE RIGHT. Please read PRINCE by Machiavelli, who says that a son whose father is executed by the prince shall forget it sooner than the deprivation of his property.
    LAND bonding is very high in villages. People are buried (where burial is their custom) in the backyard of their homes. The land is held by people for generations which is inalienable to their existence, it constitutes indelible memories. Countries don’t give up their lands.
    Can u show me a provision of the constitution which allows the state to give up its land? India did it in respect of Katchatheevu to sri lanka, all thru a treaty (executive action) which is not allowed by the constitution. So much for our pride.
    Ancestral property is held in trust by the present generation for the benefit of the next. It shall be disposed of only at the price consciously decided by the individual/ family.
    Let the state like WB which has been promoting labour unionism for the last 4 decades pay and purchase, if they are interested in growth.
    GREAT MEN REACHED THEIR HEIGHTS AND KEPT,
    NOT BY SUDDEN FLIGHT
    BUT WHEN THEIR FRIENDS WERE SLEEPING,
    THEY WERE TOILING UPWARD in THE NIGHT( CF.H.W.Longfellow- of course the recital may be with errors)
    tn, gj, mh ALL WERE TOILING WHEN kl AND wb WERE BUSY KILLING CAPITAL PROVIDERS IN THE NAME OF COMMUNISM.
