Phas gaye re NGT – #TruthWillPrevail

Please bear and read through this Maxi post (it has a lot of links for supplementary reading)

Each time I resolve not to react to anything that appears against the Art of Living hosted, now well known, World Culture Festival held on the banks of River Yamuna (or whatever was left of it), a motley bunch who called themselves “Committee of Experts” (click on the link to read about the so called experts) don’t let me do it at all.

The committee chaired by Water Resources Secretary Shashi Shekhar & assisted by Prof AK Gosain of IIT-Delhi, Prof CR Babu and Prof Brij Gopal, in its report submitted to the green panel on 21 February 2016, had stated (Quoting relevant part from the report)

The area has been cleared of all natural vegetation and the event would leave a “permanent footprint” on the floodplains of the Yamuna.

The site has been cleared of all natural vegetation and consolidated with machinery. It appears that the site has been raised with the help of JCBs (mechanical excavators). A gigantic stage made of steel rods is under preparation. A huge amount of debris and construction waste has been dumped into the Yamuna main channel.

It would require at least Rs 120 crore for restoration of the Yamuna flood plains and there is a irreversible damage, leaving a “permanent footprinton the floodplains of the Yamuna. It’s destruction and not damage of the floodplains, because there’s nothing left on the floodplains to revive. The wetland has been compacted that has killed organisms, vegetation, biodiversity and the ecological system. It takes hundreds of years and even more for a biodiversity to develop, and one can’t revive in a few years period. So, it’s total destruction

(Mark those important phrases in red – that formed part of their report on which basis the entire case is premised – I will revisit this later in this piece)

And backed by the every obliging Foreign controlled Paid Media and Liberals (PALs) – you can find some information on my two part pieces here (Part 1 and Part 2). This gives you the reason why PALs, as I refer to them in the pieces, launched an incessant attack on the founder of Art of Living, Pujya Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji and Art of Living – whether they perform their morning ablutions or not, multiple attacks a day on this world recognized event was their prescription.

And Lo!!! Something suddenly erupts to disturb the cosy comfort activists were reposing in. An usually wary and not so outspoken Water Resource Secretary and Chairman of the Expert Committee Mr Shashi Shekar blurted in an unguarded moment that Rs 120 crore fine was not based on any scientific assessment. In his letter to NGT, he said (quoting from it),

The estimate that Rs 120 crore would be needed to repair the likely damage as “tentative” and a “spontaneous suggestion”, which got elevated as a “recommendation” because of an “inadvertent mistake. This inadvertent mistake was largely due to the fact that I was running high fever and could not see the entire report prepared by the experts,”

Oh yes! Mr Shashi Shekhar wrote this letter to the NGT on March 3, eight days before the AOL event got under way. But even during the hearings on the even and the day preceding it, the Tribunal and the activists who had made it their mission to sabotage this Event never refered to this letter from no less than Chairman of the Expert Committee (Manoj Misra, Vimlendu et al cannot claim they did not know about it – but they did throw a gauntlet at me at the gates of NGT office – Swechha guy’s words “You can defeat us in court but not the fury of the nature” bandying the weather forecast. It is a different matter that he had a carton of Gelusil when nature held back just for the event to get to a magnificent start and also witness to the now famous WCF Rainbow – click this link to see WCF Rainbow & a Post Event report). Coming back to the point, a totally unscientific, tentative spontaneous suggestion got elevated as a recommendation (yes it is the language of the Expert supposedly handling some legally critical issue)

I even presented, with my friend Rajaque Rehman a far more Scientific, evidence based report “Pictures & Facts Don’t Lie – #WCF2016” which had As-is pictures, photographs of spectral records, Pre and post Event Pictures, Temporal Satellite imageries. But then we were just factual not “experts”

Partial list of work done by Art of Living for Environment protection is chronicled in this Two part article Part 1 that includes work done for Yamuna, yes yes you heard it right – Yamuna maayi was also taken care by AOL much before the event in 2010. And then Part 2 where I chronicle various river rejuvenation and enviroment related work that Art of Living has done. As clear these form far more than whatever these activists, experts and NGT put together has done for the environment and rivers. By the way! I have just listed very few of them and those done in India alone.

Now that the premise is set, let us come back to the present. A so called Expert and so called report from them was leaked to the public (press – obviously first broken on pliable Hindustan Times – known hitjob contractor against AOL and Sri Sri). Read this part of the report

The seven-member committee, headed by the water resources ministry secretary Mr Shashi Shekhar, said in the report released on Wednesday that the ecological rehabilitation of the Yamuna’s floodplains will cost Rs.13.29 crore and take almost 10 years.

Compare the Red colored block words of what NGT experts had asked for. Permanent Damage & Total destruction now becomes ecological rehabilitation would take almost 10 years and Rs 120 Crores becomes Rs 13.29 Crores. Coming from such a learned bunch of experts 😛 a poor stupid me is left wondering why we Tax Payers even have these kind of rehabilitation forum, for retired Judges and Professors and Good Boys of the establishment, called NGT and Expert committee. The report is a litany of comical errors. Chairman and another Expert doesn’t sign the report!!!

A few questions

  1. Why this selective leak of Expert Report?
    • What were the Compulsions: Desire for Media Glare (unlikely) or Pressure from a Particular Foreign funded NGO to fix AOL?
  2. Why did Chairman of the Committee and another Expert not sign the document?
  3. How did the Rs 120 Crore suddenly drop to Rs 13.29 Crores + recurring cost for 10 years)
  4. How did Permanent damage, recoup itself to getting rehabiliated within 10 years?

Here is the Press Release from the Art of Living:

Even more caustic and harsh was Water Minister, Government of Delhi Mr Kapil Mishra’s reaction to the Expert committee report. He went to the extent of mocking them saying Dolphins were swimming in Yamuna before WCF and also sought Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to repeat this festival again and again.

Here is the DNA report shared in the tweet from Art of Living which has English version of this reaction. That was a slap bit too hard. Salutes Sir. I have ideological differences with you, but tipping my hat for being on the side of Truth.

Does whatever happened remind you of the scene from a 2010 movie “Phas Gaye re Obama” Rings a Bell? NGT bargaining is something like this. I sincerely hope and pray that Art of Living stands up to this Obstructionist bully called National Green Tribunal, not surprisingly a creation of the Indian National Congres & machiavellian designs

|Jai Gurudev|

AAP Dirty Tricks Department’s EPIC Fail

ROFLMAO! (First ever time I was able to start a blog this way) Thanks to AAPtards for endowing me with that capability and providing the substance.

Aam Aadmi Party‘s  Dirty Tricks Department crashes to an EPIC Fail. As is the wont of their leader #ShooterOnScooter Arvind Kejriwal,  they try to recycle a news from some other portal (without even giving a credit). And what! they make a hash of that job too (that is why Urban Dictionary has an entry called AAPtard). I have to agree, they have a visionary amidst them:  They carry a piece on April 6th 2014 about something Art of Living is supposed to do on June 21st. Future event visualizing Visionaries. And the timing… which I will discuss later.


Wait Wait, don’t dish out an argument that it is 4 years ago – LOL! AAP was not even born then. So a piece on their Current affairs portal with a time lag of 4 years is great stuff for those setting out to transform the world  😉 And amazingly look at their source of information? Agni Sridhar – for all the rants during that time he was Silenced by the court. It is this guy who is AAP’s Herald and credible source of Information 🙂  An attempt to rob Peter to pay Paul backfired. But AAPTards over-reliance on such “Credible source of Information” doesn’t surprise me though! For a party with those who indulge in thuggery, scamming and spamming – Ashutosh Guptas or Somnath Bhartis ; or Racist Kumar Vishwas, Father abusing Shazia Ilmi or one who falsely Swears on his Children – Kejriwal himself. every one comes with their own such Powerful persona & traits 😉 So save those rants and dirty tricks for someone else (or atleast learn to do it well 😉

It is now well established and known fact to the world about Art of Living & His Holiness Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji acts of compassion, kindness and philanthropy. When Crores and Crores of Rupees is donated and spent for development of society, even assuming for argument’s sake it is true, Land need not be grabbed – it could have been bought twice over with the donations in kind during Ramlila (if you haven’t forgotten) With 70 National Council and Founding Members quitting #AAP, it surely must be getting jittery for the #BhagodaKejri and Co. The stage managed, Slapgate, InkGate and Punchgate not getting them any mileage, they had to resort to their time tested skulduggery of abusing a Spiritual Leader who in Kejriwal’s own language “luvs him a lot”



Forgotten this?


Remember Mr. #ShooterOnScooter, every inch of Ramlila had Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Art of Living imprints. Not impertinent to share an old picture of where you were seated – yes nowhere in the centrestage. This gives the world a clue of who “Made” you, what you are today. It is a bitter truth that none of them in this picture below is with Kejriwal anymore.


India Against Corruption
Pic Courtesy:

Just understand Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was extremely mild when he rebuked Arvind Kejriwal in the Hindustan Times piece. Had He decided to reveal the whole truth – #BhagodaKejri would have ran away to China or some other Commie Nation.  Fake Sentiments of Arvind Kejriwal in full display here:


Sign for AAPtards to Troll Sri Sri
Signal for AAPtards to Abuse Sri Sri


What was this chest thumping all about! If “Guruji Luvs Me a Lot” was really meant, why wasn’t a constuctive criticsim given by Guruji not taken in right spirit and where was the need to launch on to a sentimental barrage as above and open invitation to AAPtards to abuse? Sri Sri on His part also responded to this in His trademark way


Wasn't really required, but clarified nevertheless
Wasn’t really required, but clarified nevertheless


With the benefit of hindsight, just wondering where India Against Corruption movement would have been had Arvind Kejriwal and his PCRF were they not part of the movement (or alteast make him remain on the sidelines, like in the pic above;). Had that happened, this Elections would have been fought on Corruption and Development.  BTW! Have someone  heard any #AAPTard or Arvind Kejriwal speaking about Perpetrators of so many Scams (Click the link for A-Z Scams of UPA). Their fight apparently was against Narendra Modi and BJP and “FOR” Congress.” Before the AAP Dirty Tricks Department tries something like this  next time (apprenticed under CONgress Dirty Tricks Department) learn to do it well 😉

If we can build India Against Corruption with the power of Social Media, remember we can also rip AAP apart with the same power. Remember! We know too much, just too much for your comfort! Mr Kejriwal and Co! It doesn’t take much to demystify you and the is too mild.




Surajits, Binnys, Parulekars and Shivendras are just raring to go 🙂 Atleast for me (unlike AAP) , Congress is a bigger foe and danger for this Nation – Nothing to gain in immediate future cleaning up AAP. But Remember! More rare pictures, tapes and documents do exist.

AAP-atkaal – The Danger

I never fouled up my Facebook discussing Politics. But the sanctimonious ill-informed AAPtards forced me into doing it there and looking back, I have no regrets. Even when some close friends suggested that it also would help (and in fact better) to focus Positives of other parties instead of exposing AAP day after day – It set me thinking for just a small while. I thought about it again and again, but thanks to that special Person who endorsed that what I was doing as right, I carried on.
Having been part of the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement whose primer mover were Volunteers and followers of H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar‘s The Art of Living, with Anna Hazare forming the face of the movement and inspired by many crusaders who fought for a Honest system,  I have experienced first hand how the movement slowly got hijacked. From Gopal Rai inadvertently blurting out the Jan lokpal was never the aim of this movement, it was always to form a Government!!!


And then we had Arvind Kejriwal openly admitting in an interview that the self appointed leadership in Ram Lila were a motley crowd firmly with their faith grounded in Left-Liberal ideology. When he asked Bharat Mata Poster to be pulled in order not to hurt Muslim Sentiments (yes that was the reason he dished out), we saw shades of the dirty Politician that was embedded in him. When he was talking about buying MLAs the facade fell off. He was a complete politicians. It came full circle when after criticising CONgress as his enemy – they who were corrupt to the core, they who were  ineffective and hence abettors of Rapist,   they who were thieves, they who were divisive – Delhi’ites found a ray of hope. CONgress will be shown the door after all. Little did they imagine that the back door was left open. AAP decides to sleep with “they who were” everything undesirable.



I knew AAP was not doing anything different. They learnt the tricks of Political trade faster (just about the only thing they did different). They were playing by the same rules (in a smarter and dangerous way), and infested with pests who were blatantly and Proudly Anarchists and Anti-National. Their indoctrination methods (very closely resembling methods used by Commies or the Talibans as described in “No Easy day” or in “The Seige”) had ready takers, well Educated individuals who were disgusted with the system. And some rest who jumped on to the bandwagon trying to play Valmiki trying to erase their past wrong doings.

Then began the weeding process – every one who made the movement that caught the imagination of the world were slowly sidelined. Kejriwal’s make over was complete. In his language, Indian Che Guevara had arrived. The movement cannot be seen as Hindu movement (Laugh to your heart’s content) and it was rhetoric, pompous & sanctimonious bunch of retards show all the way. Ones convicted by courts of being Naxal sympathizer becomes their ideologue, Commies and Separatists formed their think tank, Referendum advocate on issues of critical National importance became their ambassador and Lawyer who tampered with evidence/witness becomes the law Minister.  Not a single person from the core committee of defunct India Against Corruption wanted to touch them with a barge pole.



While calling him a Guru, Kerjiwal (rightly named U-turnwal, Flip-Flopwal, Pultiwal, ShooterOnScooter) did everything to defame Anna Hazare.



The above screens are example to prove – You don’t have to remember if you speak truth 🙂 Another example of today may not be out of place


It was a case of Lies and more lies. I am not even talking about the Election promises that he cleverly tried to camouflage, passing off some non-sense but Social Media ripped him apart exposing the guy masquerading as paragon of virtue. One after the other every promise was broken.

As this piece is being written – a revolt is brewing – Ashutosh Gupta (who dropped the second name) from the IBN stable had a painful reality bite – While chairing AAP meeting in Rishikesh, Chairs flew around – so different from the highly cosy chairs in the news room where he could get away with anything.

Tina Sharma has raised a banner of revolt saying all promises and premise on which AAP took the plunge is being forgotten and the agenda today is to grab power.

Vijay Binny has threatened an expose for Kejriwal Lying on what happened on 23rd December night (he had promised one earlier too on Dec 24th 2013, when he was denied a cabinet berth) but apparently was bought off.

The law minister defends by tweeting almost suggesting to visit his Google Drive for Justice instead of SC or HC (where he was indicated). He went to town with evidences that was thrown out of the courts to prove his innocence.


Captain Gopinath who just joined sees red because AAP seem to have a impaired Economic vision… and so on

Call it Karma catching up, the way India Against Corruption was exterminated by this bunch of ambitious and selfish folks, AAP surely has a lot of work to ensure that they don’t face the same fate.

It anyway gave rise to many humorous moments for those on social media. Sample these
