Indo/Pakistan war of 1971, a view by a Pakistani Army officer.

As 18th December approaches, the Indian Media goes gaga over exploits of Indian Army while Pakistani media talks about RAW and how Indians played a clever game. But the following account by a Pakistani Army officer who took part in that conflict and was decorated should be an eye opener for Pakistani people. They tend to blame everything on the Civilian government and how they betrayed the nation while Pakistani Fauj stood rock like to save their country.Now also it is the elected Civilian government which is facing the flak for Shamsi airbase lease,drone attacks by USA or NATO supply line etc. They conveniently ignore it was General Musharaff and GHQ under him who were solely responsible for all this.
The link to the account by col Nadir ali is below.

KFC contest on FIRE!

For me KFC is an escape hatch because My daughter is addicted to its large Pepsi with Chicken wings while I can always take their combo meal with two chicken pieces.So their new introduction of chicken popcorn is welcome as also opening of their outlets near my home at Total Sarjapur road and HSR layout.As my daughter does not talk much, it is our endevour to make her speak independent of our effort.The KFC outlet makes her go there on her own and buy that large pepsi combo puts us we old carers on fire. A young couple may be on fire for different reasons while our reason is rather mundane.

Memogate of Mansoor Ijaz and Lessons for India

A Memo purported to be written by Mr.Mansoor Ijaz on the instructions of Pakistan’s Ambassador to USA and delivered to General Mullen has already claimed the head of the ambassador.What is intriguing in the whole affair is the denial by both the principal actors about their own role and both trying to prove their own versions by showing their Blackberry phone records( controlled from Canada by RIM).Now if according to Mansoor Ijaz the memo was prepared immediately after the Osama operation in Abbotobad and fall out in Pakistani army due to that, then why he is releasing it now?Why he kept it secret all these months and what was the need now to expose Ambassador Haqqani?
I think for this one must know more about Mansoor Ijaz.His father was one of those Nuclear engineers who fashioned early Nukes of USA.Mansoor himself qualified as a Nuclear Physicist from Cal tech.But he founded and chaired Crescent Investment Management LLC in 1991, an entirely a new genre.Who provided the seed money for this venture that he could appoint Lt.Gen James Alan Abrahamson (USAF RTD), a former director of President Reagan’s star wars programme and also James Woolsey (Director CIA RTD) to his board.The focus of his company was high technology,telecommunications,oil and gas investments and infrastructure development.
Prince Alfred von Liechtenstein was also on the advisory board and this shows that black money and Hawala transactions of the subcontinent must be also his forte.All those Big fat cats of sub continent from Politics, Business, Media etc etc who have their ill gotten wealth stashed away in Liechtenstein will be known to Mansoor Ijaz. A powerful tool for blackmail and doing their bidding especially as their career in Politics becomes untenable in case of exposure.
Another interesting thing is that Mansoor IJaz is also one of the directors in a company registered in Isle of Man called Crescent Hydropolis resorts LLC which has also German connection.This company has under sea resorts built in Dubai,Monaco,Las vegas and Oman.All areas where the Super rich of the third world squander their wealth along with Super rich of the west.
StratCom International, a firm headed by Lt Gen James Abrahamson, the first director of the US Star Wars programme, was seeking India's partnership in the stratospheric airship project for its expertise in vehicle design, payloads and control systems.Though the Airship developed for USA will hover at 70,000 feet high above the civilian air traffic and had ballistic missile sensor , interceptor platforms (Metal storms Ltd developed)and in effect an AWACS.But the Indian offer was for a platform at 50,000 feet to monitor LOC and LAC of Indo/Pakistan and Indoa/china border.ISRO’s Amtrix and Devas deal in which it sold S band to Devas comes to my mind at this juncture.
Mnasoor Ijaz has strong Turkish business connection and they jointly bid for Pakistan PTCL privatisation cake but ultimately won by UAE based EITLISAT .
Mansoor tried to make Pakistan government to recognise Israel when Benazir was ruling and again when General Musharaff was having his Military dictatoship. Both the times he could not succeed.But he did succeed in making Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee to meet General Musharaff at Agra inspite of his Kargil Mis adventure and taking over as Dictator from Nawaz Sheriff. Mansoor being an Ahmediya was not much respected in Pakistani Army circles. But he had the ear of Musharaff. He also had the ear of Vajpayee shows the tremendous clout he had with US government and also amongst Indian Business class who support right wing BJP.
The Memogate is lapped up by the Pakistani people as a betrayal of their country and Armed forces but none seem to think it could be a CIA job as was the Gulf of Tonkin,Iraq WMD or the recent Saudi ambassador assassination attempt by Iran. Everybody seem to think it could be a Zardari job in which Haqqani was made the fall guy.
With American business interests entering big way into Indian privatisation as also Indian Arms purchases, the Military Industrial complex of Americans have a vested interest to exploit the Indian Democratic system which has many cracks in the form of regional parties who show rare interest in Global issues and Military matters.
The recent Koodankulam agitation against a Nuke plant being built by Russians by villagers who are guided by foreign vested interests, the concerted effort against Indian Home Minister P.Chidambaram( one of the best we had in recent times),the closure of Bhopal tragedy cases against the DOW chemical and the various other ways the western nations benefit at the expense of ordinary Indians are all related to these types of operatives like Mansoor Ijaz who use every tool in their kitty to get their way especially blackmail involving foreign accounts of Indians .Indian scientists from ISRO,DRDO,AEC etc must be warned about these operatives and they normally use SEMINARS in 5 star hotels to trap our lowly paid Scientists and Bureaucrats.Every one in Indian strategic community who deal with any foreigner for that matter must be given instructions about these sophisticated operatives.

My favorite PC Desktop application

There is this competition by Samsung asking every blogger to write about their favorite

PC application. I will give my vote to Google desktop.
Being a news junkie, this application allows me to get news from various sources in the cyber world by putting their URL.Some Favorite news channels can be easily added and also video channels.
It has got the time, weather of my home town and also a small box showing my CPU,memory,disk etc are being monitored continuously.
Scratch pad gives a chance for small write ups which will be saved automatically.
There are plenty of other interesting things which one can add to this application. I donot know whether this will work in lap top or a tablet as I donot own any of them.
This also takes only 4 KB memory space
But I am very happy with this application on my desktop

Two Nuclear Monkeys and an American fox

Americans know that computer modelling cannot replace actual testing for ensuring upkeep of existing nuke stocks nor for making more robust nukes which may have to destroy deep cave nuclear resistant bunkers. The nukes are for deterrence and the only assurance that they will work is to test them so that the enemies know.
The North Korean underground test was NOT detected by sophisticated satellite imagery, or by sophisticated nuke discovering stations located in USA, China, Russia,Japan or even by South Korea.The noble gases were not detected. It is a Canadian radionuclide station which
detected the Xenon gas.But the North Koreans were not happy because USA will just not accept that they have conducted a test which is meant for deterrence of enemy which in their eyes is USA. Now those who want to cheat can use decoupling the nukes before testing to reduce the seismic signal.China,USA,India,Pakistan,Egypt,Indonesia,Iran,Israel and North Korea have not signed the NPT out of 44 nations which posses nuclear know how. JASONS, a nuclear think tank in US has warned that Stockpile Stewardship of existing nukes may not completely give the workable assurance of the nukes.When the personnel ,silos and other maintenance infrastructure allowed to stagnate, then the second strike capability lacks a credible deterrence to the enemies.Bunker Busters developed by Bush are being tested in Tripoli,Afghanistan and other places.
The very process of nuclear development and testing
enables a generation of experienced, proven designers and technologists; it
necessitates a working nuclear weapons infrastructure; and, it signals clearly to those
nations’ leaderships—as well as to the world—that the government from the top down
supports the maintenance of those countries’ nuclear arsenals and deterrence goals.
US shows to outside world that their nuclear and military goals are peaceful while actually it is anything but peaceful and every other nation must watch what USA does but not what it talks or preaches
Now coming to the two Nuclear Monkeys of the subcontinent. Indian leadership is told by the Seminarists who normally are connected to various American think tanks like Heritage,American Enterprise Institute,Brooklyn ,CATO etc etc that India must talk to Pakistan because it did talk to Pakistan inspite of Kargil. But now as UPA has failed , just like NDA with their old approach of talking,stop talking for a while after a terror strike, and then restart talks because Pakistan is our neighbour till the next terror strike controlled from Pakistan happens. Pakistan keeps giving assurances while the Army/Jihad complex keeps plotting for the next strike and the timing to suit its objectives. This strategy of keeping India off/balance should not be acceptable any more and India must convince the Pakistani Army/Jihad complex that there is cost attached to any strike which is controlled from Pakistan like the Mumbai 26/11, or the Indian Parliament attack. India must openly support Balochs, Sindhies etc etc as the Pakistan is doing in Kashmir,Northeast,Assam or Punjab.In short treat Pakistan openly as an enemy country.While the US government has been involved in the Headley interrogation and the Rana trial in Chicago, most of the stories about Pakistan’s perfidy in GWoT and the machinations of its military-jehadi complex have been broken by the international media. Proliferation of the internet and web technologies means that these stories are now easily available to most of the Indians. The political price an elected Indian government has to pay must now decide future of India/Pakistan talks and the cost which India should inflict on Pakistan for their low cost Jihad.
So why not test the Paksitani nuclear first strike thres -hold by striking at the 57 Terrorist training camps in Pakistan along with houses of Hafeez Saeed and Dawood Ibrahim and the fake currency printing press.. Will this trigger the Pakistani nukes to be armed? So goes the argument of the western backed Seminarists.
Ofcourse the Pakistani state controlled by Military /Jihad complex from the time of General Zia-ul-Haq to Musharaff does not need any education in hating India or testing the socalled the thresehold of Indian nukes as they know everything depends on the Political leadership and that especially now is under the control of Americans. The Jihad complex is remotely controlled from Saudi arabia through ISI, Dubai,Dacca,and the location is revealed as per needs. Once a major terror strike like the one in 26/11 is organised and casualties are ensured then the Indian public opinion will be conditioned to pressurise Indian Political leadership to do something. I think the present Mumbai attack is one such pin prick and many more are likely to take place as per the preparation of the Jihadies and their handlers.I expect one in Delhi,Bangalore and even in Tamilnadu and West Bengal.
The assesment by US/Russia about a dirty bomb attack is published and it says
“”The assessment examines potential terrorist pathways to a nuclear attack, among them buying or stealing an existing weapon, or getting highly enriched uranium or plutonium and fashioning a crude nuclear bomb of their own, which the study warns is distressingly plausible.
All stocks of nuclear weapons, highly enriched uranium, and plutonium must be protected against all plausible terrorist and criminal threats, and the number of locations where these stocks exist must be reduced as much as practicable.
Coordinated U.S.-Russian leadership is vital for this international effort because the two countries hold the largest nuclear stockpiles and are most experienced in dealing with nuclear security. This joint effort should promote and support enhanced intelligence and law enforcement by the United Nations, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and international police organizations.”””
Meanwhile the Americans with leadership help from Australia have launched Asia pacific Leadership Network for Nuclear Disarmament and non/proliferation.General Karamat and Murshid Hassan from Pakistan are supplemented by Jaswant Singh of BJP and Mr.Man singh, ex Indian Chief de mission in Washington are assisted by two high profile diplomats from China and 30 others from Japan,Korea,Indonesia,Singapore,Malaysia etc.led by the Australians.
While defanging of Pakistan is the immediate goal, it follows that Indian and North Korean nukes are also on priority list. China will play a significant role in the defangment of south asia and North Korea as it knows its neighbourhood should be nuclear free zone for its own security.
What role USA has assigned Russia and China in this defanging is not clear but their national security interests converge in this is apparent.
So a small skirmish along Indo/Pak border will suit the trio but how the Jihad complex functions under their handlers will decide the scale of this skirmish and also the forcible nuke elimination of both countries
Clinton is bringing with her Nuclear experts who I think are going to assess the Kalpakkam Indian nuclear complex which is housing the fast breeder and also the Military Nuclear complex which is not in the list of entities which India will throw open to IAEA inspection. India must watch the actions of western powers but not their slogans if it genuinely wants to be a world power.

The first priority in the above certification given by Hillary to the Congress shows the priority and national interest of USA. Indians must not be carried away by the Media controlled frenzy and look at actions of USA carefully.

Schizophrenia/ A father looks at drugs: Brahma Kamal blooms in Bangalore

Schizophrenia/ A father looks at drugs: Brahma Kamal blooms in Bangalore

Brahma Kamal blooms in Bangalore

 "Epiphyllum oxypetalum "or "Night blooming Cereus".
The flower blooms once in a year which makes it auspicious. It is mistaken as 'Brahma Kamal' (Saussurea obvallata ) which blooms in upper reaches of Himalayas.

   When my friend called me at 10PM about a week back to witness the flowering of "Brahma Kamal", in his kitchen garden, it was an opportunity not to be missed though I was already in the bed. It was realy a sight to behold and also the fragrance. There were nearly 15 flowers. I clicked with my Sony cyber shot. Later I came to know that watching it brings wealth.This once a year blooming flower has also very short life spam of only 4 hours and that too at night, a pity indeed.

    I also wanted to post  the picture of the the flower when it is in withering stage as above. It is this time that  I noticed one very important thing. The flower comes out of the LEAF of the plant and not from stem like other flowers. I think this is unique.Also my friend showed how he is growing a fresh one in a pot by placing the leaf of the plant and not the stem like other flower plants. One continues to learn.
 I have put the original "Brahma Kamal" photo also below

Original 'Brahma Kamal' or "Saussurea obvallata " as shown above is the much revered flower of the Himalayas and is an excellent example of plant life at the upper limit of high mountains.It is the State flower of Uttarakhand.
   The following snaps were taken on 6th July 2012 when the first bud came out and bloomed on that night.

Schizophrenia/ A father looks at drugs: Erawady fire and disabling Supreme court of India's Judgement

Schizophrenia/ A father looks at drugs: Erawady fire and disabling Supreme court of India's Judgement

Erawady fire and disabling Supreme court of India's Judgement

    It was Year 2001 when 28 chained Mentally ill patients were charred to death at Erawadi Dargha. The incident was well covered by the Frontline magazine of that week. Link is below
Deliverance at Erawadi
   What many of the patients and their Carers hoped was some action from the Government of India  in the form of  inclusion in the National Trust act 1998.Our hopes became almost reality when the Supreme court of India took suo moto action of the incident and passed the following order
     of Feb 2002 issued in a nutshell on that case(No W.P.(C) NO 334 OF 2001)
  1. District wise survey of all registered and unregistered bodies purporting to offer mental health care. Licence to be granted or refused depending on whether minimum prescribed standards are fulfilled or not. Process of survey and license must be completed within 2 months of the order and comprehensive compliance report within 3 months. Further the compliance report must state that no mentally challenged person is chained in any part of the state.
 2.The Chief Secy. shall be the nodal agency to coordinate implementation of MHA, The Persons with Disabilities Act 1995, National Trust for Welfare of Persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and Multiple Disabilities Act 1999. 
 3.The Union of India shall file an affidavit within one month of the Policy of Central Govt. towards setting up at least one Central Govt. run mental hospital in each state and U.T. and State Govt. if not even one State run exists, to give a definite time schedule for establishment of the same.
  4.Govt. shall undertake comprehensive awareness campaign with special rural focus to educate people as to provisions of law relating to mental health.
 5. Every State shall file an affidavit stating whether State MHA exists and details thereof.
  It again issued another order on 12th April 2002.The contents in nut shell are
  1.Every State shall undertake a Comprehensive Need Assessment Survey of estimated availability of Mental Health Resource Personnel, Type of Mental Health Delivery System in both public and private sector, coupled with an estimate of Mental Health Services that would be required for the population of the state and incidence of mental illness. 

2. The Chief Secy shall state whether any minimum standards have been prescribed for licensing of Mental Health Institutions, whether these institutions private or run by the state meet such minimum / prescribed standards as on date of passing the order and steps taken for compliance. 

3. How many unregistered bodies offer mental health care exist in the state and whether any of them comply with minimum standards and steps to close down the same. Whether any mentally challenged person is found chained. The Need Assessment Survey shall be submitted by 1st. July to Health Secy and filed in court by 15th. July.

4. Union of India is directed to frame a policy and initiate steps for establishment of at least one Central Govt. run Mental Hospital. Also the UOI was asked to examine the feasibility of formulating uniform rules regarding standard of services in both public and private sector. It also asked UOI to constitute a committee to give recommendations on care of abandoned mentally challenged persons. It also asked UOI to frame norms for NGO's to ensure that the services run by them are supervised by qualified / trained persons. 

5. State Govts. are also directed to frame policy and initiate steps for establishment of at least one State run Mental Health Hospital. Pertinently, it calls for establishment of an exclusive full fledged hospital and does not include a psychiatric ward in medical college or Govt. run hospital. 

6.Legal Aid: S.C directed that two members of the Legal Aid Board of each state be appointed to make monthly visits to such institutions to enquire whether further treatment is required and assist in discharge. 

7. Rights: Patients and their guardians shall be explained their rights by a team of 2 members of the Legal Aid and a Judicial officer. Also formation of a Board of Visitors (Sec 37 -inspection of hospital). Besides the stated membership of the board in Sec 37, additionally, The Additional District Judge/ CJM and or President of the Bar Association of that area AND State Disability Commissioner or his or her nominee. 

8. A scheme for rehabilitation process like a quarter way home be envisaged. 

  The UOI had been directed by the S.C. to file an affidavit on four issues viz. Frame policy and initiate steps to form one mental hospital in each state, examine feasibility of formulating uniform rules for private and public sector and frame norms for NGO's, constitute committee to look into issues of care of abandoned mentally ill and collate information of all states regarding Need Assessment Survey. 

     But we the carers did not understand the power of Human rights activists and those close to Ms.Menaka Gandhi  who scuttled this judgement with varying tactics, the most important one being arrival of Manna from Heaven called UNCRPD. Everyone of the carers know what we got after the arrival of this "rights for disabled" especially for disabled due to mental illness. Now we have a draft of new Disability rights law and another one called Mental health law , both drafts being made after extensive consultation with various civil society groups and NGOs and again everyone knows the situation on the ground.
    A week back I got a call from a carer from Patna, whether I can help him with his son who is an IT professional, married with a son but got a relapse due to non compliance.He wanted to know how to get a
court order for involuntary admission as his son is not allowing anyone to enter his flat while the wife has run away with the child. He wanted to know the name of some lawyers and not Psychiatrists!!!Well he got help from the police and got him admitted for treatment and that is what we see new on the ground after the arrival of "RIGHTS" under UNCRPD.
    As 6th august is approaching being the anniversary of the tragedy, lot of effort is being made for lighting candles, articles in News papers and magazines about Mental health etc etc while real work is being done at
Madurai by one Chef Narayanan(not a carer, Psychiatrist,Psychologist or Social worker) who is feeding home less mentally ill eating shit from the street CNN Hero Narayanan
.One shudders to think if Vandana and Vaishnavi have not established the Banyan a  home for Mentallyill abondoned women, what would have happened to Homeless Mentally ill women who are released from Prisons due to Human rights lawyers.Indian Heroines Vandana and Vaishnavi
    Now for those who are interested in making contribution to  government papers; a new committee has been formed to evolve a new Mental health policy and the link  is below.
  Mental Health policy Group of Government of India
   Ms. Menaka Gandhi used Disability movement to establish her own political constituency among dog lovers while throwing disabled due to Mentally ill into the streets with her attitude in the Ministry of Social Justice.
  Mr.Arun Shourie used the love for his disabled child to help the children who are retarded and autistic by establishing the National Trust and also creating political constituency among them.
   We the carers of Mentally ill are hoping for some powerful politician in UPA or NDA or the Left to have a child or grand child to feel the pain of Mentally ill and then at least implement the Supreme court order which was passed after the death of 28 chained Mentally ill at Erawadi way back in 2002.

Father's Day

           Now a days one has all sorts of days which cater to Ad guys whims..Tomorrow is Father’s day, and my thoughts went back to my childhood and what I remember of my father.He was fond of wines and also English pictures and classical western Music.He named me in honour of Johann Strauss while my brother was named Mendelssohn.But both of us did not learn any Music though we loved to hear all sort of music. He attended the Church occasionally with my mother who was a staunch Sunday church attendee and part of choir and also stood first in studies most of the time while he was a student leader at Christian college, Madras during the 1930s.I remember him talking about Tamil scholar Sargunar and he used to visit his friends Mohamed Usman,Harris ,CP pattabhiraman and lot of Anglo Indian friends .He was fond of Boxing and one Kitheri Muththu, a professional boxer coming to him for tips.He left his job in Madras corporation and took up the job of Panchayat  officer because he liked the word “officer”.
 I am  a baby
in the hands of my aunt,mother and father.
  What i liked to remember is the various English pictures which I saw with my father and later Tamil pictures because he used to get free entry in village touring talkies made of tent.He gave the licence for them.He was also a staunch admirer of Periyar EV Ramaswamy naicker and never feared to express it openly inspite the Government of that time under Rajaji opposed EVR.He was also friendly with Tamil Drama activist MK Radha who used to stage the play “Raththa Kanneer”.I always liked the back stage visit as MKRadha used to give a cup of tea when I sat on his lap.He also helped dramatist AP Nagarajan who used to suffer in penury but was a brilliant actor and staged lot of plays like “Maya machandra”
  As he was corrupt, and never passed any departmental exams, he was never given any promotion but just before his retirement, he was promoted as BDO.So he was forced to depend on my mother’s teaching job after his retirement and almost nil pension.He was honest enough to tell me that he cannot send me to Engineering college but funded my graduation at St.Joseph’s college, one of the best colleges in Tamilnadu.He allowed me to study Chemistry in my graduation instead of Physics in which I scored much more marks in my Intermediate exam.Fr.Exhrhart, our Principal asked the same question and my father replied that he likes Chemistry and that was that.I think I liked my studies only due that.
 Now Ifeel he was a sort of Atheist and so abhorred organised Church. He was feeling bad when DMK split from DK under CN Annadurai as EVR married a young nurse. Mr.Sabapathy editor of Viduthalai, a DK paper always stayed in our house whenever he visited small  village towns.
  What I remember most and stood me in good stead in later years is the dinning into my years
which he did about all Humans. I used to be in awe of Gandhiji, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, and other great men of our time.But he used to say in crude way that all these men went to toilet!
When I took the name of Pope, he said the same by including the name of Queen Elizabeth,and yest-er year actress like Vijayanthimala about whom he knew I had a crush. Basically he imparted that humans will remain humans and I never got disappointed due to exposure of corruption,sexcapades of leaders like Kennedy,Clinton, Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan and now Gandhi or modern Church leaders.All are humans.
  He was fond of eating non vegetarian food and died having his brain curry, the day he died due to Diabetic gangrene. He always took me to Bangalore when he came for his beer drinking and as I live in this city now I miss his presence when I visit the older part of city and Naidu’s restaurant at chickpet!!! A great Father.

Osama Betrayal/ Will India be asked to pay the Price


              Now that Osama was eliminated by US Navy seals inside Pakistan ,some hard questions face India. The recent visit of Kiyani to Abbotobad, ISI Chief Pasha’s visit to USA to meet with Panetta (without being arrested in spite of Rana trial in Chicago) and of course Kiyani’s meeting in Bahrain with Admiral Mike Mullen and Pakistan Fauzi foundation being allowed to recruit Baloachs for Bahrain national guard. The covert help provided by ISI with nod from Gillani in releasing  CIA man Raymond Davies through courts. What is the reward Pakistan Army extracted for betraying Osama is the question Indian policy makers should ponder as it involves second term for Obama.
  The secret contact which Mr.Man Mohan singh had with Kiyani through special interlocutors which led to Gillani meeting him at Chandigarh also must have weighed in the mind of Service chiefs of India. Did the Indian PMO ask the Indian Army to vacate Siachen? The pressure on Indian Air force chief to select one of the American planes for the MMRCA contract must have been a red rag for him as he had very bitter experience in dealing with arrogance of Americans after the C5 purchase and usage of its avionics that Air force decided to fore go altogether the avionics pod of C5. In the guise of end user agreement, Americans wanted to have complete control over Indian air force and its usage. The clout they wielded in Indian Political circles showed to the Service chiefs, it is also  time to show Indian Politicians where the lakshman rekha is drawn.
  Arabs/Yemenies consider South asian men  as of inferior breed that they are even allowed to see the face and escort unmarried Saudi girls.The 9/11 operation was given exclusively to saudies  though planned and executed by Khalid shiekh Mohamed.After General Musharaff betrayed the Taliban  due to President Bush’s threat should have warned Osama that anything can happen to him from the south asians but he believed may be in the inner circle of GHQ which dealt with Pakistan’s nuclear policy which also provided security to High value Arabs who continue to stay in Pakistan due to marriage and medical reasons after Afghan operation.  Gen Kiyani is not Gadaffi or even Iran’s leader and he is just like Gen Musharaff.
  The spate of writeups by western inspired media and think tanks in India and the statements coming from Indian politcos blaming Pakistan for harbouring Osama  shows the deeper game of
Pakistan/American alliance. It wants the betrayal to be hidden so that Alquaeda backlash doesnot happen in Pakistan as in the case of TTP after killing of Baitullah Mehsud wherein Pakistan Army provided the GPS coordinates of his father in law’s house.
   Siachen, Sircreek and complete control of Afghan policy after withdrawal of Americans is the price India may be asked to pay by the Americans. The Abbotobad operation might have been carried out by US seals but it had covert Pakistani help in the form of providing exact location of Osama,complete blackout of the city during the raid,asking civilians to stay indoor just before the operation.The Fixed wing aircraft which was flying over the ops area and giving AWACS support could not be without Pakistan’s consent. The airbase from where these seals took off in 4 helicopters was inside Pakistan as per many Pakistani mediamen. The whole operation took 2 hours inside Pakistan and not 40 Mts as claimed.
   The Gates,Patreus removal and also Hillary clinton giving a vague tip off during May 2010 about Osama living in Pakistan show Obama was desperate to have this action carried out before the election and also before it got leaked out to Jewish lobby in America. The Times square and Ground zero celebrations by youth of America show Obama’s second term is assured,
  The question is whether India will be asked to pay the price for Osama betrayal in form of Siachen and also change in India’s  Afghan policy. The booting out of American planes from  MMRCA contract shows that Indian Service chiefs are also incorruptible  and it will be difficult for Pro American Politicians in Indian cabinet to sell this line to Indian people with help from Indian media and Indian opposition.

In Awe of Pakistani Ladies

                  I think it was Kushwant Singh who said that whenever he went to Pakistan ladies colleges as guest lecturer he has to really search  for an ugly face while in Indian Girls’ colleges it is the other way around when one rarely saw a pretty face. This created a small furore at that time and being a Madrasi from south it was blasphemy; as for me every north Indian girl looked like apsaras in the streets of Delhi’s Karol bagh. Any how I have never met or interacted with a Pakistani lady except may be during 1971 war when I saw some East  Pakistani refugee women. Now when I comment, posted blogs in Pakistani spectator, I was also able to read some brilliant blogs,comments by Pakistani Ghazala Khan(Blogs  herePakistani spectator), Amna Gilani ,Nazia,Maria ( also use the Pakspectator), Tazeen( hanif (blogs here,Mehreen Kasana ( etc
One common thread I see in all of them is the COURAGE AND HONESTY in tackling issues
concerning Pakistan.
    The subject of Pakistani ladies cannot start without Mohtramma Benazir Bhutto.She knew all along that she will be the target of attack by the establishment but she had that one singular quality COURAGE which even today not exhibited by Military man General Musharaff or MQM chief Altaf Bhai. She could have easily gone back when she survived such a massive first attack but she believed in Pakistani people and almighty Allah and stayed on.
  Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, an American of Pakistani Origin neuro scientist, was convicted by a US Military court for the attempted assault and killing of U.S. personnel in Afghanistan. Must have required lot of courage and ingenuity.
Pakistani  Christian lady Asia Bibi has shown rare guts inspite of Majority of Muslim ladies of her village bullying her at the water point and her profanity might have been blashphemical but did not hold back (
Mukhtaran Mai, the gangrape victim has shown her guts in spite of legal hassles .She blogs here (
MNA Marvi memon is another lady who has shown loyalty and boldness in sticking by her leader President Musharaff who is so unpopular now in Pakistan and also consistently anti-Indian
Sherry Rehman is the lady who started the trial baloon about changing the Blasphemy law(
Veena malik is another Pakistani lady who takes on the clerics with lot of courage and logic. in this must watch video.(
What we see here is the emergence of young new thinking Pakistani ladies who have to show much more courage than our Indian ladies just to survive and voice their opinions. They are doing it without fear and in their own way.All of them are fiercely Pakistani patriots but they are also eager to see TRUTH and explore.I only wish our youth in India interact with them instead of CIA agents from America who mask as Indians and foul mouth venom with Indian names and glorify anything Indian ..These ladies will respect Truth and Honesty from Indians therein lies future of Indo-Pakistan peace which is now held hostage by Pakistani Army and Civil Society fed on brain washed Mullahs. The Americans are desperately trying to win this constituency as their traditional supporters from Pakistani Army General HQ is no more that popular in Pakistan after they sold to Americans on the Raymond Davies affair.  Indians must also remember that there are 1200 females in Pakistan for 1000 males while due to our killing of girl child in womb we have a ratio of 850 females to 1000 males and so we lag behind Pakistan in this Human development Index. These young Pakistani ladies are the future mothers of Pakistan and all south Asians know what role these Mothers play in the life of their sons. So our educated youth should reach out to these Pakistani ladies with TRUTH and Honesty instead of that proud crap that we are functioning democracy, our growth rate is 10% and our software professionals are ruling Silicon valley etc etc.Therein lies peace in the sub continent of future.
