Is Tamil Nadu the RICHEST state in India?


There is a concept called Distance between the States, which determines in an affirmative /socialistic way the forwardness and backwardness of  States in India, which is the pivot used in determining the  allocability of central revenues to the different States in India.
TAMILNADU has been apportioned 4.02% (14th Finance Commission) of the allocable central revenues, instead of 4.97% (13th Finance Commission) for the previous year/s, as per  the Finance commission.
That is a FULL 20% LESS THAN THE LAST FISCAL.
Is this a JUST way to INVENT SUCH SKEWED FORMULAS TO DOWNGRADE PROGRESSIVE PRO-POOR STATES LIKE TAMILNADU?
I think not.

Let us determine the allocability of Central Revenues based on CONTRIBUTION,  SAVINGS, WORK CULTURE, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, NON-DISCRIMINATION, BURDENS ASSUMED BY THE STATE BECAUSE OF LACK OF RESOURCES, SCIENTIFIC TEMPERAMENT, SECULARISM, PROHIBITION, & PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION and such parameters.
Feeding lazybones with sumptuous free meals leads to eternal liabilities in the long run.

Let us take the states which have been determined for allocating LESSER PERCENTAGE of central revenues over the previous determination by the Finance Commission:SHARE OF

STATES IN CENTRAL REVENUES Percentage wise: 

Sl. No.        State             13th FC             14th FC          Diff in %age        Diff in %age over                                                                                                                                    the  previous FC

1.          Uttarakhand              1.12%                   1.05%                0.07%                  -6.25%

2.          Himachal                  0.78%                  0.71%                0.07%                  -8.974%

3.          Odisha                       4.78%                   4.64%               0.14%                  -2.92%

4.          Assam                         3.63%                  3.31%                0.32%                  -8.815%

7.          Bihar                          10.92%                   9,67%              1.25%                   -11.44%

8.          Uttar Pradesh          19.68%                  17.96%             1.72%                   -8.73%

9.         United Andhra           6.94                      6.74%               0.20%                  -2.88%

____________________________________________________________

There are 9 states which are going to receive lesser percentage than their previous year/s allocation from the Union’s Revenues
Is this reasonable considering the fact that TN’s contribution to the national income must be over 10% of the allocable central revenues.
If new schemes are brought out and successfully implemented by the state government & inflation is defeated through shrewd planning by TN,  instead of rewarding socialistic measures successfully implemented, formulas are INVENTED TO DOWNGRADE THE MORALE OF A SUPER STATE.
What a pity my countrymen!
No other state is being penalized this much, just because they are successful!

By getting 20% less than the previous year’s central revenues, TN should consider itself the RICHEST STATE IN INDIA! or is it DISCRIMINATION?

MARE FAIR!


MARE FAIR
Once in a village a fair for all the mares in that county was held. Some brought wild mares, some blinkered mares and some blinkered & bridled ones. However they were all allowed to mingle with each other so that they could share their experiences.
The Wild Mares said that they had the most colourful lives and could go wherever they fancied, eat whenever they wanted and prance around without any limitations except their own capabilities. The Blinkered ones said that a life without limitations would have made them unfocused and they would have frittered their energies on aimless wanderings. The blinkered and bridled ones looked highly disciplined and said that for the other mares it might seem as if they had surrendered their WILL to their RIDERS and had abdicated their selves! But to the surprise of the other Mares, it gloried on the successes of their Riders and even started narrating their victories in human warfare, wins in races and even on their control and character in showjumping. In fact a mare called Bucephalus ( double L would have made it a horse), was proud of its master that it said: I am fed the best of foods which humans hanker, as my master’s wins in battles are attributable to my skill, speed and most of all my ability not only to take orders but so take decisions to save him in difficult times, which he might not have been able to foresee.
Each group of Mares, was looking at the other with a certain contempt, the Wild Mares thought of the Blinkered ones as having ‘hampered vision’, the Blinkered ones thought of the Wild ones as being lawless and of the bridled ones as having no will of their own. The blinkered & bridled mares thought of the Wild ones as Purposeless and of the Blinkered ones as having the focus in Vision but not purposeful in Deeds.
Anyway, keeping the contempt of each group to itself, they asked each other: But why don’t we have any Mare which is merely bridled but not blinkered among us?
The Mares were unable to find an agreeable reason and went to Rowther, who had been in the business of dealing horses in Tamil Nadu and asked the question: WHY DONT WE FIND ANY BRIDLED MARES WITHOUT BLINKERS?
The wise Rowther said: MARES MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO SEE CERTAIN THINGS IF THEY ARE TO BE BRIDLED, OTHERWISE THERE WOULD BE A SERIOUS RIFT BETWEEN THE RIDER AND THE MARE.
The Rowther added, the bridle is the culmination of the blinker and you mares see merely the reins, but it is that BIT WHICH IS PUT IN THE MOUTH OF THE MARE WHICH KEEPS THE MARE UNDER CONTROL.
The wild mares and the blinkered ones kind of felt sorry for the Bridled and blinkered mares.
But the bridled and blinkered mares were busy grinding the horse gram attached to their heads. They were busy eating, lest when the bit and bridle are stuck in their mouths!
The other mares said: why do they call that as HORSE GRAM and not MARE GRAM?
Any answers for this one?

INDIANS SLIME OUT OF CONTRACTS!


Movid's Weblog

In the latest study from World Bank “Ease of Doing Business in India 2011” India is ranked as 134 out of 183 countries. Table 3 summarizes India’s ranking in “Doing Business” for key indicators. Though India has been ranked fairly for two indicators namely “ Getting Credit” and “ Protecting Investors”, it has secured embarrassingly in “Enforcing Contracts” in which it has been ranked 182 out of 183 countries and “Dealing with Construction Permits” as 177 out of 183 countries. According to the details in “Enforcing Contracts” India takes almost 1420 days and involves 40% cost of claim which is way above the OECD countries that takes just 518 days and 19% cost of claim.

Nowhere is India ranked this low by the WORLD BANK report except for ENFORCING CONTRACTS. Why is this so? The reason is neither hard to find nor is it complicated. The reason is EACH INDIAN’S…

NON SMOKERS ARE IMMORTAL!


As relevant, as it was in 2012! Be the change, Government!

Movid's Weblog

All the Cigarette packets, sold in India, scream the Governmentally compelled negative advertisement, ” SMOKING KILLS.” How far is this advertisement legally, ethically and medically correct?

Firstly, the seller of the cigarette is compelled to state things against the very product the company/firm is selling.

Secondly, the Central Government levies Excise duty on Tobacco products and thereby benefits REVENUE-WISE from the sale of tobacco products.

Thirdly, the moment one steps into a hospital for any check-up, the first and invariable question asked is, “ARE YOU A SMOKER?” That makes the Physician’s job simpler. He now knows what to look for! He is taught in his medical school how a smoker’s lungs is clogged, how his arteries are blocked and how the tar and nicotine have spoilt his whole system. So he starts with a PFT (Pulmonary Function Test……) , a scan on all his arteries, especially of his limbs and…

LENTEN MISCHIEF!


Lent is coming!

Movid's Weblog

Almost anyone who is religious must have discovered that his religion, if it does not impose, recommends a period of abstinence and abnegation. The reasons attributed for such abstinence could be depending on your vocation/temperament/erudition/inveterate belief. Even though there is nothing in the NEW TESTAMENT directly stating that one should FAST or deprive oneself of food and good living at any point of time,  CHRISTIANITY has competed with other religions and has prescribed through the Church establishment that the period from ASH WEDNESDAY till EASTER, every year,  should be observed as a period of SELF-DENIAL, called THE LENT.

Coming to the NEW TESTAMENT averment made by me, Jesus was once asked by someone as to why, “when the Pharisees fasted often, why his disciples did not fast and observe the “regulations” imposed by the Jewish ecclesiastical regulations?, Jesus answered, ‘When the bridegroom is with them, where is the need for…

WHY CASABLANCA, THE MOVIE, IS THE BEST?


Movid's Weblog

To tell a story is difficult, but to present a screen version of a story is even more difficult. The difficulty is compounded when the backdrop is the middle of a world war- as the viewers of today cannot be expected to be acquainted with the harsh realities which would have been easily identified with by that generation, but not today’s. Yet CASABLANCA, despite belonging to a peculiar period, brings out the human predicament. An irreconcilable predicament and that predicament is brought out unobtrusively, which appeals to a thinking person’s sub-conscious. The apparent one liners and the style are there to catch the fancy of  the movie watchers who go for leisure or mere entertainment.

Let us get to the movie structure. There was a man who finds a woman. The MAN finds a WOMAN. Each had found what each had been subconsciously seeking. They separate. The MAN is unaware…
