Its now or never moment for India

Narendra Modi has arrived. He has arrived as the messenger of the second freedom struggle for India. His speech, the second one from the ramparts of the Red Fort, was a speech of a national rejuvenator and a "Baahubali", who loves his nation and her people. And can do anything to see a powerful nation re-emerging out of despondency.
Today, which also happens to be the birthday of the great seer Sri Aurobindo, looks like the beginning of a new era for a bruised and battered nation.
It's a "now or never" moment for India. Suddenly the dreams have returned to our eyes and the path to freedom from poverty and backwardness looks aglow with the sweat of our leader who has the guts to lead us from the front. The uneducated, corruption-ridden, lethargic and hopeless India, a "gift" of the continuous rule by the Congress has found a safaiwala who will create a new and vibrant nation with a glory that had always been the hallmark of our land and our people.
The history of a nation looted, burnt, massacred and subjugated must find a closing chapter. And for ever. Delhi was massacred 18 times. And our people, who handwrote three million books on science, arts, philosophy, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, astronomy and dharma were made to witness the burning of their libraries, in Taksh Shila (Taxila) and in Nalanda. One of the most beautiful and well architectured city we had built - Hampi - was hammered down to lie in ruins. Our freedom was forced to be truncated and a million people lost their lives and a majority of those who survived lost their homes and families.
This is how we arrived to see the dawn of August 15.
It's a story of us, a story woven with the sacrifices of our brave forefathers, a story that tells the spine-chilling cruelty of mlecchha invaders who buried alive our beloved sahibzadas, Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh in the walls of Sirhind fort - brick-by-brick. Think about the pains and tears of their grandmother, Mata Gujari, who had to find her way through thick forests protecting her two other grandsons from wild animals and wilder hounds of the enemy. Ask your own conscience why Guru Tegh Bahadur was called "Hind Ki Chadar" and not "Punjab Ki Chadar".
Those 400 great Tamil freedom fighters who were hanged in a single day by the British for demanding independence and those like Velu Nachiyar, Rani Gaidinliu, who fought to free India from the foreign yoke may find little or no mention in the highly prejudiced and Left-tainted history books. Yet their sacrifices make the colours of the tricolour brighter and honourable.
This is how we have arrived at a moment where celebrating Independence Day became possible.
It's possible to yell with all your strength a great and thrilling Vande Mataram because our soldiers, as a tradition, and as a faith, protect our motherland, standing guard at Siachen and Jaisalmer.
And look, those who can't even remember the names of five freedom fighters or sing a patriotic song, and those who have discarded the language of the people of the nation whose name appears on the first page of their passports, still want to rule us.
After all those turbulent years this nation has gone through, a bunch of mavericks are wasting a nation. They are wasting the collective strength of a billion-plus people. Should they be ignored or pardoned, or allowed to put hurdles in the path of a nation that is moving pretty fast? Should we take lightly how these people tried to insult and humiliate a lady speaker of the Parliament and demonstrated in a brazenly cave-age manner before her residence?
Efforts to paralyse a nation is a sin and a crime worse than the ones perpetrated by those who came and invaded us. They were foreigners. But these power hungry arrogant road-blockers are hurting their motherland from within.
Look back at how these very types of leaders yielded to the British and wasted the sacrifices of our freedom fighters by accepting a partition of the nation.
Look back how in the very initial days, immediately after we had unfurled the tricolour from the ramparts of the Red Fort, we lost a two-thirds of Kashmir and later the entire Aksai Chin to Pakistan and China. The very first step into freedom was marred by the jeep scandal, affecting the security and morale of our soldiers. The first 15 years saw one lakh twenty five thousand sq kms of India's land being occupied by aliens and then came the blow of 1962, when we lost a war with China.
The economy was shackled with permit-quota raj, politics was sliding deep into corruption, the administration was clueless about the new regime; it simply followed the colonial legacies.
Bharatvarsha, that is India, became a poorly translated copy of the British India of the Nehruvian order. The Constitution was a "copy and paste" work of the Government of India Act of 1935. The Indian Civil Service (ICS) became Indian Administrative Service (IAS). And above all, the people of this land who were born with the culture and civilisation that created the fabric of our national life were suspected and contemptuously discarded. All doors to mainstream intellectual dialogues, centres of knowledges and political interactions were closed for them, even invitations to the Rashtrapati Bhawan and Governors' "high tea parties" and banquets were never meant for a huge section of our people who stood firmly for an ideology that reflected the core values of our nation. This was an era of ideological apartheid at its worst.
Every dark age has an end and this too was ended with a massive mandate by the people of India for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in general election 2014. The hateful elite was overthrown in a democratic revolution and this led to pain for those who couldn't stomach the defeat. It was a normal phenomenon with totalitarian, stinking rich rulers who become blind with their money and long stint in power, being involved.
Let patriotic people rise against these elements, who are worse than the British. Let's not allow them to waste the nation. Villages, cities and towns, our distant regions in the northeast and Ladakh and pavement dwellers in Mumbai and Chennai and Kolkata, our fresh new generation gleaming with hope and aspirations are waiting for electricity and potable water and good schools and health centres. Enemies on the borders are waiting to be silenced and housewives waiting for a happier times. Let the nation rise again. And frivolous, de-Indianised elements be junked. Once and for ever. 
That will mean a freedom genuinely achieved for India. That will be the second freedom struggle for us all. Vande Mataram.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday June 14th, 2014, dedicated India's largest warship INS Vikramaditya to the nation.
He also sought to make the country self-reliant in manufacturing defence equipment, shedding dependence on imports.
In his first outing after taking charge as Prime Minister, he addressed the naval personnel onboard the ship off the Goa coast, calling the addition of the warship to the force as a "historic" step, reported PTI.
"It is an important day for our nation. It is a golden day in Indian Navy's history. For me, it is a matter of pride and happiness that INS Vikramaditya is joining the Navy. It is a historic step," he said.

Stressing on the need for self-reliance in defence equipment manufacturing, he said, "We need to give immense importance to latest technology. This will help the nation.
Why should we import defence equipment? We must be self sufficient. Why can't we send our defence equipment to other nations."
The Prime Minister also promised to set up a War Memorial for those who sacrificed their lives for the country.
He said this government has come with a determination and was committed to implement the "One Rank, One pension" scheme for defence personnel.

"Our government has the potential to match anyone in the world and the reason for this is the capability of our soldiers who give us the strength to do so," he said in his address, adding that the country intends to move forward in the same manner, without lowering its eyes.

Tarun Vijay promises a place for Thiruvalluvar’s portrait in parliament

“I will ensure that the Indian Parliament has a statue or a portrait of great Thiruvalluvar for his contribution to Tamil Literature through Thirukkural,” said Bharathiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament Tarun Vijay here on Monday.
As a part of his “Thiruvalluvar Thiruppayanam” or yatra to promote the classic ‘Thirukkural’ and its author Thiruvalluvar, Mr. Tarun Vijay visited Madurai City from Tirunelveli and addressed a meeting organised at Setupathi Higher Secondary School.
Raising questions about the general lack of awareness in the northern parts of the country about ‘Thirukkural’ even after years of independence, Mr. Tarun Vijay said that it was one of the greatest treasures of Tamil language and Indian culture which should be taken to every part of the country.
“Tamil scholars and enthusiasts must be united in the cause of spreading awareness about the greatness of Thiruvalluvar’s works and we will ensure that all schools and colleges have a picture of Subramaniya Bharathi and Thiruvalluvar as a first step towards creating awareness,” he said.
Mr. Tarun Vijay further encouraged that ‘Thirukkural’ couplets could be painted behind autorickshaws and buses to let more people know about its greatness.
While thanking people in Madurai for the warm welcome they had extended to him, a son of the Uttarakhand soil, he spoke in remembrance of Flight Lieutenant K. Praveen of Madurai, who had lost his life while helping people during the Uttarakhand floods.

Sankara Seetharaman, vice president of Kamban Kazhagam, K. Vaidyanathan, Editor of Dinamani Newspaper, Poet So. So. Mi. Sundaram and Professor R. Sreenivasan from Sastra University also spoke at the event.

BJP MP sings praise for Tamil poets

MADURAI: BJP MP Tarun Vijay said that a statue for Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar should be erected in Indian Parliament and portraits of Thiruvalluvar and Tamil poet Mahakavi Bharathiyar should be kept in all the institutions across India. He insisted that students from all parts of the nation should be encouraged to study thirukural (Thiruvalluvar's couplets). He was speaking to an audience of Tamil enthusiasts here on his 'kural yatra' to propagate awareness about Tamil poets Thiruvalluvar and Mahakavi Bharathiyar on Monday.

Earlier, he paid tribute to Bharathiyar statue in Sethupathi Higher Secondary School, where Bharathiyar worked as a teacher for a short time in 1904. He started his yatra from Kanyakumari on Sunday after paying tribute to the 133-foot Thiruvalluvar statue in Kanyakumari. He arrived here after visiting Bharathiyar's birthplace at Ettayapuram in Tirunelveli district. Tarun, who started his speech with a few words in Tamil and a thirukural, said that he felt sad that many parts of the nation still did not know the epics in Tamil language. Thiruvallur and thirukural is not known to many people in the country, he said, and attributed it to the "superior attitude" of people in north India. India is not complete without thirukural and one would not be complete without knowing the literary work of Thiruvalluvar, he commented. Bharathiyar should be conferred with Bharat Ratna and his works should be celebrated. He is a poet who also involved himself in the fight for freedom and travelled from south to north for the cause, he said.

Indian should forget the differences over language and traditions, ideology and culture and should work together to promote thirukural. He called on the people to support him to do more for the Tamil language. He had already requested 
Pranab Mukherjee, the President of the nation, to allow practice of law in Tamil language in Madras High Court, he said.

He was immensely happy to call himself a Tamil lover, he said, adding that even though he was born in Uttarakhand, he wanted to be the son of Tamil Nadu. Before the nation celebrates the language, the Tamil people should celebrate it. Parents should ask their children to talk in the language. Tamils should take inspiration from Tamil literary giants and should spread the language, he said.

Bharatiya Janata Party Rajya Sabha MP from Uttarakhand Tarun Vijay has vowed to take the teachings of saint poet Thiruvalluvar to every nook and cranny of the country.
Beginning his “Thiruvalluvar Thiruppayanam” after offering prayer to Thiruvalluvar statue here, Mr Tarun Vijay said Thirukkural couplets were the best example for national integration.
Later speaking at a felicitation function at South Mada Street, he said the glory of Thirukkural and the biography of Thiruvalluvar would be taken to every college and school across the country.
He would strive to include the biography of Thiruvalluvar in school and college curriculams in north India as the work of the saint poet was advocated equality, he noted.
Thirukkural couplets should be written on the back of every vehicle. The cultural values and history of north and south should be exchanged elaborately, he stressed.
Holy water from the Ganga and soil from the house where poet Subramania Bharati stayed in Varanasi were brought and kept at the feet of Thiruvalluvar statue.
The holy water was poured into the sea at Kanyakumari and the soil would be handed over at the residence of Bharathi at Ettayapuram, he noted.
He said he felt like the son of Tamil Nadu though he was born in Uttarakhand. He would establish a “Tamil Learning Centre” in Dehradun, he added.

Union Minister of State for Shipping and Highways Pon. Radhakrishnan, BJP State president Tamizhisai Soundarrajan, State vice-president Vanathi Srinivasan, BJP national secretary H. Raja and others participated.
