Rani Padmavati issue

Much has been said and done about the upcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film "Padmavati'.

On one end there is Freedom of Expression warriors and on the other end there are Karni Sena (self claimed Rajput representatives) warriors. The movie has kicked up storm in Rajput heavy states as they think the Portrayal of Rani Padmavati is below their dignified standards. My take on this

Padmavati issue is Commercialism/Capitalism meets Politics. Both vested interests are at locked horns with each other. At one end its Bollywood who will fall to any depth to make some money and on the other hand its a fringe group fighting to get a stake in political power.


Recently a renowned journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik got to see the advance screening of th...

This is the State of cleanliness in one of the most Expensive Areas of Jaipur, Raja Park.
It used to be clean and trash getting picked up every day, but now under new Mayor Ashok Lahoty the pink city has become trash city. 

Mayor Ashok Lahoty has to be worst mayor of Jaipur's history. City once topped the charts in cleanliness looks like a war ravaged sub saharan city and falling in clean city chart faster than rupee falling against dollar.
Its pity the way they think and how out of touch these politicians are from people and the society they claim to represent, picking trash during the day from homes and removing trash bins from neighborhoods was the worst city maintenance decision ever made. In Jaipur, people throw t...

Police Drone Captures rocks stockpiled on roofs in Ramganj

After the mob attack on police station and public properties Ramganj is under curfew since last two days. Internet is not yet on in entire city.

Post curfew Jaipur police drone flew over the unrest area, what it found is shocking. Rocks and stones stockpiled on roofs in an event of another agitation. This is a very concerning sign, citizens of the city all geared up to destroy it.

Stern action has to be taken, city cannot be held hostage by few goons. Ms Vasundhra Raje and her cabinet has been in 'Talks' with muslim leaders. Is this kashmir or negotiations with naxals? State has to reinforce its writ else this will set a bad precedent.

A state without backbone will be pushed around by every tom dick and harry who can amass few people. Be it Ra...

8 September Friday Night. The Pink city showed its ugly side on Friday night when an unruly mob ran rampant and burned properties, attacked police station and damaged properties. One person who was injured taken to hospital later succumbed to his injuries. Since Jaipur blasts by Pakistani terrorists in May 2008 it was first time Curfew was imposed in Jaipur after 9 years.

Krishn Kanhaiya, by Hafeez Jalandhari
Lord Krishna nazm
Krishn Kanhaiya, by Hafeez Jalandhari

This nazm is by Hafeez Jalandhari, the Urdu poet most well-known for composing the lyrics to Pakistan’s national anthem, the Qaumi Taranah. Born in the Punjabi city of Jalandhar (now in India), he moved to Lahore following India and Pakistan’s independence and Partition in 1947. It was a time of mutual co-existence and poets and writers wrote about any deity regardless of their religion. In fact Allama Iqbal who is considered as the father of Pakistan had written a nazm in Praise of Lord Rama.

Below is the Translation of Original Urdu Poem in English, stanza by stanza.

Lady Police bullying citizen

We have seen male police officers bullying poor people, but now Jaipur's Lady police has joined their male counterparts. 

While two lady constables on a bike jumped the signal without helmets it was recorded by a citizen. That didnt go well with lady officers and they tried to snatch his camera.

Police is to protect and to serve, but if protectors start breaking the law then who to blame?

Ms Raje, hope you take care of this!
