IS Sidhu


Information Is Power



This is History (129)
It was Akbar's reign that established the Mughal dynasty and made it of the soil and wholly Indian in outlook. He was very autocratic and had uncontrolled power.



N N Vora is the 'Amitabh Bachchan' of bureaucracy
Former IAS officer NN Vora who was awarded the Padma Vibhushan in 2007 for his service to the nation, is considered 'Amitabh Bachchan' of bureaucracy.

Why have Sonia and Rahul become aggressive all of a sudden ?

Why have Sonia and Rahul become aggressive all of a sudden ? Grapevine has it that there has been a change in the attitude of both these leaders because they know that it is mandatory for their survival.





Yeh Desh ka yaaro kya hogaa ....
If only Sonia MMS ji ki baath maanthi!
Unn ki GST ke maamle mein objectivity jaanthi!

But now she's reduced MMS ji to a decoration piece!
Soon MMS ji will not do joh Sonia ko karre please!

Sonia ke advisors hai annek!
Sabh apni apni rotis karr rahe hai sekk!

All Developed Economies have adopted it (GST)!!
Sadly here its blocked because of Sonia's writ!

Rahul's problem is his knowledge is limited!
And his quest for power and hatred for Modi is unlimited!

Rahul Baba refuses to recognise the change!
Bangalore Girls too felt he was being strange!

His verdict on Make in India and Swach Bharat shocked!
If they could would have said wrongly GST being blocked!

He simply cannot bear Modi's stellar work!
Many youngsters feel Rahul's being a Jerk!

He is trying to show Thunder as a squeak!
And this foolishness has still to peak!

Status change has filled him with hate!
That's why Excellent ko bad karr raha hai rate!

Ma and Beta are intolerant to any other Sarkaar!
And Modi ke saath toh inn ko hai waise bhi khaar!

Intolerance charade is now on hold!
Mustering strength I've been told!

One aim is to woo Muslim Vote Bank !
Other...message to Foreigners ..on India don't bank!

They have tested this model and it's a success!
So prior to election ON button they will press!

A repeat like Dadri and Intolerance cry!
To whip up passions they will again try!

Then pro Congi Celebraties will jump into the fray!
Start chant 'for India please pray'!

AAPs Lokpal is being termed as Jokepal!
Some say it's Rokkpal!

Stop any attempts to get to the sachayee!
Now even Yogendra has joined in the Hai Duhayee!

Hear Madam has gone to USA!
Medical reasons Congis say!

BJP maintains a humane stance!
On Modi's Official trips you have seen Congress's war dance!

BJP's tolerance is commendable!
And even as a foe it's dependable!

I do not agree. YV Reddy's grounding in IAS is equally contributory to his success as RBI governor as conventional economists were chasing market. Talent where ever it is need to be tapped. The exercise need to be objective.

Modi losing balance

Modi seems to have lost balance with the great treatment, which he has been receiving from abroad. So far there has been no wrong step from his side in so far as the administration is concerned. Now the people want to see things happening at ground level. His Government has already taken some good policy decisions. Now is the time to follow their implementation. A number of good governance reforms is already there i.e. recommendations of the 2nd Administrative Reforms Commission on which government approval whether the past/present government is there. The Secretaries and the Chief Secretaries are going in a lackadasical manner. They are not conducting their regular monthly meeting to review implementation of the accepted recommendations. If this along with e-Governance is done regularly for say one full year half the battle is won.

Duplicate degree

The appellant sought for the enrollment number & roll number of a student who was enrolled for the BA course in the year 1993 & passed 3rd year in 1995. The information was denied claiming that it is very difficult to manually search for the old record as computerization has been done from 2006 onwards. The appellant submitted that the degree certificates of the student were snatched and destroyed by her stepmother. The CIC directed to search the relevant record and provide the information along with the duplicate certificates.


Many cases have been brought to the public notice where students are running from pillar to post for getting copies of the old records. It is the duty of the public authority to ensure proper upkeep of the documents in its control.
