Mr Keemat Rai Gupta and his son Mr Anil Gupta, the owners of Havells.
Keemat Rai inherited Daddy’s business.
Now Anil Gupta inherited his daddy’s business.
The Board of Directors at Havells has been filled with their blood relatives too. Brother in law Mr Surjeet Gupta and nephew Amit are both part of it. The next generation is in queue awaiting their dues.
Guptas have built their “merit” with this inheritance generation after generation and is today reaping huge socioeconomic benefits of such nepotism. Such are the torchbearers of “winds of change” in corporate India.
What does one do with the preachings of those whose sole merit is their birth?
Mr Gupta, you look like a joker climbing up your daddy’s ladder.

The Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes (prevention of atrocities) Act 1989 should be amended immediately to include specific provisions to address the caste based discrimination on dalit adivasi students08/05/2014
The Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes (prevention of atrocities) Act 1989 should be amended immediately to include specific provisions to address the caste based discrimination on dalit adivasi students in central, state and private universities, iits, iims and other educational institutions. The professors and administrators, who are discriminating and causing mental agony to sc st students and in some cases forcing dalit adivasi students to commit suicides, should be punished by removing them from employment and should be put in the prison until their death. Principally I am against death sentence, otherwise I would have proposed death sentence to these professors and administrators.
Attend fact finding meet tomorrow 7th May 2014 at 10am:- Efl university administration has rusticated a tribal PhD scholar and president of Dalit adivasi Bahujan minority students union, Mohan Dharavath and Satish nainala, general secretary of telangana students association.

Please Sign Petition to Install Dr .B.R. Ambedkar portraits in all Courts and all Police Stations in India
Mr. Salman Khurshid
Minister of Law and Justice,
4th Floor, A-Wing, Shastri Bhawan,
New Delhi-110 001
Subject: Install Dr .B.R. Ambedkar portraits in Supreme Court, all Benches of High Courts, all Lower Courts and all Police Stations in India
We the under signed request you to Install the portraits Dr .B.R. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar in Supreme Court, all Benches of High Courts and all Lower Courts in India.
Dr Ambedkar, popularly also known as Babasaheb, was one of the founding fathers of independent India. He was also the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of Indian Constitution.
The role played by Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar has left its imprint on the social tapestry of the country after Independence, and shaped the political and civic contours of India today. It would have been a different India without him and, in all probability, a much more inequitable and unjust one.
He was the first Law Minister in Independent India. As a law minister, Ambedkar formulated several important bills including the Hindu Code Bill. He was a key player in the constitutional developments of India from the mid-1920s and on certain issues such as a uniform Civil Code he was to anticipate some of the major issues that have been the topics for debate in India.
Dr.Ambedkar was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, in 1990, such an important persons he is, and rarely we find his pictures in the Court and Police Station, which are the guardian of Indian Constitution.
Therefore we request you to direct the respective administrations to install portraits of Dr B.R Ambedkar in Supreme Court, all benches of High Courts Lower Courts, and all Police Stations of India. It would be appropriate to recognize his role in drafting the Indian constitution by displaying his portrait in Police Station and in Indian courts.
We the following would urge the Government of India to pass a Government Order to make sure Dr Ambedkar portraits are installed in Indian Courts and Police Stations.

PETITION FILED U/S 12 OF THE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS ACT 1993
I, B.Karthik Navayan, Programme Officer, National Dalit Forum wants to bring to your kind notice about the Brutal attack, sexual abuse on six Dalit women, gross violation of human rights. And Inaction of Police and administration
On 09/12/2011, Friday, an upper caste mob brutally attacked Six Dalit Women namely 1) Smt Manju Devi, w/o Satan Sada, 2) Smt Dulari Devi w/o Kainu Sada; 3) Smt Parodevi w/o Ramnath Sada, 4) Smt Pabiya Devi w/o Tarani Sada 5) Smt Reshma Devi w/o Wakil Sada 6) Geetha Devi w/o Dinesh Sada. All are belongs to Nararia village of Khagaria district in Bihar
The accused mob 1) Saroj Singh s/o Promod Singh 2) Anoj Singh s/o Promod Singh 3) Manoj Singh s/o Promod Singh 4) Dharmendra Singh s/o Promod Singh 5) Promod Singh s/o Uchit Singh 6) Uchit Singh s/o Ramswaroop Singh7) Wakil Singh s/o Maheshwar Singh 8) Kailas Singh s/o Maheshwar Singh 9) Maheshwar Singh s/o Sukhdev Singh, all belongs to Chatar Village of Khagaria District in Bihar
All the accused went to the farm of dalit women Manju Devi on 09/12/2011 at 9 AM, to encroach it illegally, and started destroying it. When she came to know, she along with her above said neighbor women went to the farm and tried to stop the mob that started destroying the farm
The accused mob circled the 6 dalit women and abused them in filthy language, on the name of their caste and attacked them by lathi danda and guns. All the 6 dalit women shocked and asked them why they are destroying the farm. The irritated mob had beaten all the women. Due to this two women went unconscious. One woman Dulari Devi’s both hands fractured, they also snatched the gold rings worth of 15000/- (Fifteen Thousand Rupees)
Satan Sada the husband of Manju Devi reached the place and requested for compromise. The accused mercilessly looted Rs 10000/-(Ten Thousand) from him at gun point. The accused number 1, Saroj Singh fired a bullet on Satan Sada, fortunately it missed
The Accused 2 Anoj Singh and Accused 3 Manoj Singh both sexually harassed Pabiya Devi and Parodevi; they removed Sarees and blouses of both dalit women and paraded nakedly. And they spit in the mouths of dalit women. Now all the victims admitted in the Sadar Hospital in Khagaria.
The victims lodged a complaint in the Morkahi Police Station; FIR is registered number 80/2011 under section 147, 148, 149, 342, 323, 325, 504 of Indian penal code and Section 3 (i) (ii) (iii), (iv), (x), (xi) of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1987. The station house officer Sathyendra Kumar took up the investigation
Even after 27 days of incident, neither an inquiry is conducted nor the accused arrested by the police, due to the political influence of the Accused. And meanwhile the accused regularly calling and sending mediators to victims and threatening to withdraw the complaint by saying that “police and other government officials not going to help the victims, nothing will happen to accused” police only serve the rich people not poor like you”.
I request your kind authority to direct the police to conduct inquiry and arrest the accused immediately, also request you to direct the district government authority to visit the victims and provide the necessary health facilities and compensation
The Dalits in this locality are feeling panic after this brutal attack on the dalit women so I further request National Human Rights Commission to visit the Nararia village of Khagaria district in Bihar. And conduct an inquiry in this case, to give moral support to the victims and local dalits

Ms Bedi, how dare you?
By Kancha Ilaiah
Team Anna has been arrogant and self-righteous ever since it launched the Jan Lokpal movement. Its Jantar Mantar hungerstrike yielded quick results, as the Congress government itself gave the team a boost by constituting a committee to draft a bill and by including five members from the team in it. Among them was former cop Kiran Bedi, who behaved as if she were an angel and all others in the country either corrupt or of no consequence. But now this angel has been caught for fraud and cheating organisers that invited her to speak at their functions.
Ms Bedi has claimed that she did it all for public good, as the money earned by submitting wrong invoices was used for her NGO. Ms Bedi wants us to believe that all the money she made by lying was spent on the wellbeing of poor children. This is ridiculous, to say the least. Look at the kind of money she earned through cheating. According to a newspaper’s estimate, Ms Bedi, in 12 air trips, claimed Rs 3,89,062 whereas the amount she spent on these trips was Rs 1,18,277, thus pocketing Rs 2,70,785. Ms Bedi, as a recipient of the President’s Gallantry Award, gets a 75 per cent discount on air tickets, which she happily availed but didn’t disclose.
This is a major crime. The purpose for which that fraudulently earned money is used is not the issue. The issue here involves cheating a trusted organisation which is paying you without even asking for your boarding pass. I also travel and give lectures, as Ms Bedi does. Most organisations treat us “speakers” so well that there would be an immense sense of shame to cheat them.
If Ms Bedi were honest and morally upright, she would have asked for a donation from the organisation for the poor children she is so keen on helping. If Ms Bedi were honest and morally upright, she would not have cheated the organisation by serving an invoice for money she never spent. A chain of lies becomes part of such travel racketeering. The bigger the profile of such persons, the easier it is for them to earn huge amounts of money this way.
This “earning” is not accounted for; one does not have to pay taxes on this. Should such a practice be treated as corruption? I think it is corruption of the worst kind because this fraud is pulled off on the basis of one’s reputation and the trust of an organisation that considers you valuable enough to invite you to talk to them.
First is the moral corruption. Ms Bedi, and others like her, travel like royalty, without having to carry their own baggage or boarding pass. Nor do they take the ticket receipts that the airline generates. All the more easy to generate a fraudulent invoice of a fraudulent travel agency. This act involves a series of lies that need to be transacted between individuals and institutions.
Second, this method of making huge amounts of money deceives institutions that also have a public purpose. So while Ms Bedi may be on the dias of, say, an educational institution, talking passionately about public figures and their corrupt ways, hectoring students and teachers to act against corruption, she herself has no qualms about cheating them.
This angel of morality was just yesterday waving the Indian flag as a leader of the anti-corruption bureau that Anna Hazare established while sitting in a Yadav Baba temple in Ralegaon Siddhi, which works only according to the principles of varnadharma. We all know that in several TV debates this angel of morality and merit used to abuse the reservation system as a legal mechanism that produces a “merit-less” class of people who join government institutions only to make money through corruption. Arvind Kejriwal tells the nation — after Swami Agnivesh exposed him — that he put about `2.9 crore which was given in the form of donations to Mr Hazare’s movement in the account of India Against Corruption, his own NGO.
Ms Bedi runs an NGO with money that is fraudulently collected from public and private institutions and Mr Kejriwal runs an NGO that pockets money given to Mr Hazare. Let them remove Mr Hazare from their team and ask for donations. Then we’ll see how much money they will collect. How come the shining stars of public and personal probity did not open an account in the name of Team Anna itself? Why did they not form an organisation with Mr Hazare as its chairman, without whose signature money could not be withdrawn? Who is operating that money now?
We now understand why they were struggling to keep NGOs out of Lokpal. They wanted a Lokpal that would monitor peons, clerks and small section officers in the government sector, perhaps with a view that more than 50 per cent of small job holders come from reservation background. Would they now introduce a clause in Jan Lokpal Bill where a corrupt peon should be respected for taking bribe as long as it is for a worthy cause?
By Team Anna’s own demands and insistence on stringent action against corruption, should not an example be set by sending Ms Bedi to jail for cheating organisations in this manner? Why is Mr Hazare allowing her to continue after several organisations issued public statements that she cheated them? If Ms Bedi can wash off her guilt and sins by returning the money ( Rs 16,346 only), why don’t we extend that same courtesy to A. Raja, K. Kanimozhi and Suresh Kalmadi? If we accept this principle, why not give them a chance to return all the money they earned through kickbacks and return to being powerful and respectable again?
Team Anna can’t invert the moral discourse when it pleases them. Ms Bedi’s plea of innocence fools no one. If they want to regain credibility, let Ms Bedi go to jail now.
