why we need to agree to Anna’s 3 conditions to quit fast

Anna puts 3 conditions to quit his fast,the 3 conditions are the same 3 sticky points that were not approved by the goverment  in the meet with anna team
condition 1– citizen’s charter, why can’t this be done? isn’t this the main essence of bill? Anna is demanding a very genuine issue,
 A Citizens’ Charter represents the commitment of the Organisation towards standard, quality and time frame of service delivery, grievance redress mechanism, transparency and accountability.
Thus this condition is essential for transparency & to improve quality of public services
Condition 2Introduce Lokayukta in each state, giving them full power, dissemination of power is very essential in removal of corruption.

Condition 3 – want lower bureacracy to be included– the power of lok pal to dismiss a gov employee of his job on the basis  of corruption charges- gov say its against article 311 – job security of corrupt gov employee is more important than fight against corruption? is the gov ever bothered about job security of aam admi?

thus Annaji’s 3 conditions are the basics of Jan lok pal , and his conditions are genuine and crucial issues in removing corruption in our society.

புத்கத்தில் இருந்து ஒரு துளி…

புகைப்படம் எடுக்க நான் மிகவும் கஷ்ட்டப்படும் நேரம், கலவரம் முடிந்த பின் நிலவும் நேரந்தான். நான் மிகவும் மனக் கட்டுப்பாடோடுதான் இருக்கிறேன். மனதளவில் பாதிக்கப்படாமல் இருக்க முயற்சிக்கிறேன். ஆனால் அது மிகக்கடினம்.நாங்கள் இங்கு காணும் காட்சிகள் அவ்வளவு கொடுமையானவை. ஒருமுறை கலவரதிற்குப்பின்

ஒரு பெண் கையில் ஒரு குழந்தையுடன் கதறிக் கொண்டிருந்தார். அக்குழந்தையின் தாய் தந்தை கலவரத்தில் கொலை செய்யப்பட்டிருந்தனர்.என்னிடம் அப்பெண் இவளை வைத்துக்கொண்டு நான் என்ன செய்வேன் ? எனக் கூறி அழுதாள்.

எனக்கு மிகவும் வேதனையாக இருந்தது.

என்னால் நிம்மதியாக உறங்க முடியாது , நான் ஓட வேண்டும், ஓடிக்கொண்டே இருக்க வேண்டும்,

குழந்தையை கண்ட அன்றுதான் மனம் தளர்ந்தேன்.

ஆனாலும் அப்பெண்ணையும் குழந்தையையும் படம் எடுக்க மறக்கவில்லை. இப்படி ஒரே ஒரு செய்திக்கே மனம் தளர்ந்தால் தொடர்ந்து பணிபுரிய முடியாது. இதுபோன்ற நூற்றுக்கணக்கான சம்பவங்கள் ,,,, அவை கொடுமையானவை. சகிக்க முடியாதவை, என்னால் என் உண்மையான பெயரைக்கூட வெளியிட முடியாது. வீடிற்கு செல்ல முடியாது.  – அல்கேறிய கலவரத்தில்அடிபட்ட ஒரு பத்திரிக்கையாளரின் பேட்டி.

Why do we celebrate our republic day on 26th January?

Why do we celebrate our republic day on 26th January?

The date 26th January represents the remarkable day in India’s freedom struggle.

On this day in the year 1930  the  tri color flag was hoisted with pride and anger  by our freedom fighters publicly.

The thought of  ‘ independent India’  which was burning in the mind of all the Indian’s were converged together as a single thought on this day.

This clear thought that ‘India would be a free country ‘    though was headed by Gandhiji but was vigorously believed and forced by  the then young patriots like Mr.Nehru and Mr.Subash Chandra Bose along with many other leaders.

First Gandhiji’s idea of  call for the British to grant dominion status to India was not accepted by Mr.Nehru and Netaji,

While they both demanded “complete national independence” – PURNA SWARAJ

Which was not agreed by Gandhiji .

Yet latter due to British’s denial of reforms and political rights, Gandhiji and all other leaders unified with the idea of  ‘Purna swaraj’

The flag adopted in 1931

“The British government in India has not only deprived the Indian people of their freedom but has based itself on the exploitation of the masses, and has ruined India economically, politically, culturally and spiritually….Therefore…India must sever the British connection and attain Purna Swaraj or complete independence.”  states  –  Indian declaration of independence,  drafted by MAHATHMA GANDHI

The Declaration of Independence was officially promulgated on January 26, 1930.

Veteran  leaders such as

Netaji Subash chandra bose


Shri Jawaharlal Nehru

Shri BalgangadharTilak

Bal Gangadhar Tilak,

Sri Aurobindo


Sri Bipin chandra

Bipin Chandra Pal

had advocated explicit Indian independence from the British Empire.

After the british  officialy left India during 1947 ,  the new Constitution of India, as drafted and approved by the Constituent Assembly of India, was mandated to take effect on January 26, 1950, to commemorate the 1930 declaration.

On that day in 1950, India became a republic.

So we  celebrate our republic day on January 26 – commemorating the sacrifices of Indians during the struggle for freedom and  also honoring our military,air and naval forces, prominent achievers of society.

who said reading habit is receding?-the heavier & lighter side of Chennai book fair

34th Chennai book fair… to me Chennai book fairs are always ….fascinating event… i have been to these fairs since i was a kid…

every year… my publishing house participates in the fair and in recent years  my books are displayed as  well,

so now i enjoy book fair as a publisher and a writer.

The personal response that i receive is really important for my further work.

so thats the basic picture.

this year we had a very good response as usual

some unique features were…

we had many new visitors… many first timers who ventured into the world of reading

Tamilputhakalayam @ chennai book fair

Tamilputhakalyam Dhagam Stall @ 34 chennai book fair

thats an inspiring change …

we had the usual regulars … they had a blast checking out the books sipping coffee

another thing i observed in the Chennai book fair was, we had a good response to Tamil books rather than english books and games dvd’s/cd’s.

most publishers said that poetry books did not received a good response… any ways thats not my area of interest 🙂

but serious political,history books rocked this year! –  a healthy growth that i welcome

on this note i need to point out one thing,

before few years we had a craze for historical  books… this was well pocketed by some  mushroom publishers … who published books with fancy titles on history,politics… these books were unimpressive.

i personally bought these books and felt cheated … for the books were very light… and so boring…

this year these books were well identified and omitted by the readers… that includes me as well:)

in contrast all the good books on history and politics had a great response…

how can we choose a good book from a bad one?

go by the author / publisher

have a glance at the writing style …

if you understand and find it  interesting,you are holding the best and  right book…

as usual famous historical novels were sold out

lifestyle books had a great response too…

children story books had a warm welcome this year… we had cute little curious visitors to our stall… 🙂

biographies were not that popular this time,

great news is lighter interest books had low response – cookery,beauty tips, books on astrology, etc

so over all its a happy picture  and we can now ask with a smile..

who said reading habit is receding?

okay now moving a bit off track… the canteen facility was no so tasty …

thanks to all the coffee/tea / popcorn stalls without them survival would have been tough 🙂

next new thing… the book fair pathways were named after famous creative writers and thinkers… poets Barathy, Barathydasan, Shelly, Tagore, Gandhiji etc

path ways named after poets/authors

path ways named after poets/authors

one thing that was bad was the flooring in the fair… it was terrible and many walkers slipped and fell to floor 😦

the evening events attracted very few visitors…

we had few unexpected visitors to our Tamilputhakalayam stall this year like  mr.maniratnam, mr.ila.ganesan -bjp , mr.sanjaysubramaniam, and some usual visitors like mr.pazha.karruppaia, mr.duraimurugan,mr.jagathratchagan,  and many more

we had a pongal pot display this year in our stall,



our bookmarks and pongal cards were well appreciated  🙂











so we had a great time this year at the Chennai book fair

and there were the funny moments too …

when i was walking around the fair one cute liitle boy was yelling to his father ‘ actor surya’s picture ! surya’s picture’

the father was patiently explaining ‘ no its not surya .. its a real police’

the boy was ponting to his finger to an ips officer’s (who was dresses in his police attire)  poster in a book stall!  🙂

next comment was a parent seriously warning  his kid ‘ hey don’t entre into all the book stalls … most of the books are for writers… not for you… go into the stall that has books for you okay! ‘

the four year kid was bewildered by the warning… so was i 🙂

anyways it was so much fun….

by the way i bought loads of books …

mostly on sri lankan history

indian politics


atheism / religion/culture

Chinese revolution,



and a lots more…

எனக்குப் பிடித்த அரசியல் தலைவன்…

24 வயது இளைஞ்சன், அழகான தோற்றம், நல்ல வளமான குடும்பம்.அன்பான அம்மா, ஆதரவான அப்பா.அழகாய் கவிதை

எழுதுவான்.கம்பீரமான குரலில் அவன் பாடுவதை நண்பர்கள் விரும்பிக் கேட்பார்கள், அவனை அனைவருக்கும் பிடிக்கும்.

கல்லூரிக்கு போனால் நண்பர்களின் உணவுகளை முழுதாக உண்பதில் அவனுக்கு அவ்வளவு இன்பம்!

இந்த சூழலில் அவ்விளைஞ்சன் வீட்டை விட்டு வெளியேறி தனது கனவை நிறைவேற்ற தன் உயிரை தூக்குமேடைக்கு பரிசளித்தான்.

அந்த இளைஞ்சன் – பகத் சிங்

அவனது கனவு – இந்திய சுதந்திரம்.

1931 ம் ஆண்டு தூக்குமேடை ஏறுவதற்கு முன்பு அங்கே இருந்த ஒரு ஆங்கில அதிகாரியைப் பார்த்து பகத்சிங் ‘நீங்கள் மிகவும்

அதிர்ஷ்ட்டகாரர், ஒரு இந்திய புரட்சியாளன் தன் மகத்தான இலட்சியத்திற்காகப் புன்சிரிப்புடன் உயிரை அற்பணிக்கும் காட்சியை காணும் வாய்ப்பு உங்களுக்கு கிடைத்திருக்கிறது!’ என்று மகிழ்ச்சியாக கூறினாராம்.

24  வயது இளைஞ்சன் தான் பகத்சிங் …. எப்படி அவனால் மட்டும் இப்படி சாதிக்க முடிந்தது?

எப்படி வந்தது இவ்வளவு வீரம்?

அவனுள் மட்டும் ஏன் இவ்வளவு தேசப் பற்று?

இவை அனைத்தும் அவனுள் இருந்த சக்தியால் தான் சாதியப்பட்டது.

அதே சக்தி நம் அனைவருக்குள்ளும் உள்ளது.

ஆக்கபூர்வ சக்தி நம் ஒவ்வொருவருக்குள்ளும் உள்ள பண்பு…

இதை நாம உணரும் போது ..நம்மாலும் சாதிக்க முடியும்…

விசாலமாக சிந்திக்க முடியும்…
