Passing thought on the development during the day on Lokpal issue

Is there a possibility of filing a PIL in court for establishment of truth on "scientific enquiry into the possibility of Parliament and politicians acting correct to curb Corruption" ? Corruption has been studied as to have originated from "political" grass roots even by the United Nations. Then, another common study is that "election fundings are the door way to corruption". Understanding the implications of these two commonly held view points, what is the scientic possibility of the Parliament and the Politicians passing the right anti-corruption bill?

Philosophical enquiry into the concept of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha

Having pondered over the terms of Popular Choice and the Right Choice over here, I was trying to decipher the philosophical gap between the two houses that Indian Parliament consist of. The System is very much copied from the British Parliament, which houses the House of Commons (the wisdom of popular choice) and the House of Lords (wisdom of right choice).
The Lok Sabha is based on the lines of House of Commons, while the Rajya Sabha is based on House of Lords.
The election procedure of the members of the Lok Sabha, and the selection procedure for members of the Rajya Sabha speak of the difference and highlight at what the two houses are aimed at.
Thus, the collective wisdom of the nation is a combination of the Popular Choice and the Right Choice.
But since both of these, the Popular Choice and the Right Choice, are difficult to be found on any issue, Popular Choice is often deemed as the majoritist view, while the Right Choice is approximated away as the Popular Choice in the abs…

Right Choice and Popular choice democracy

Popular choice and Right choice are two different things. Popularism (aka जनमत/बहुमत) may not be the right (धर्म-संगत) thing. When people of free-will meet, they each have different beliefs. For a community to happen with people of different beliefs, Right path has to be explored which they each voluntarily agree to abide. In non-violent and civil methods, this is done through शास्त्रार्थ/ or the .........Debates and Dialectics (thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis). That is how wisdom is propounded. That is the job of Parliament. Further, specialisation has to harped in to convert a personalo-logic thing to a natural-standard item to overcome the problem of varying beliefs of people. Like, a kilogram can no longer be defined as weigth equal to that of gold bar kept in London Museum. a kilogram, now is weight defined in terms of Carbon atoms. In the last resort, Right path is approxmated away as the Reason-ified path, where the final reason of choice is stated away with room left for ad…

Above Lokpal, do you need a Dharampal, if the Lokpal falters??

My friend asked me this question in his stand to oppose Team Anna and their Lokpal issue. Here is the orignal conversation which broke out between me and my friend on Facebook.

Manish Singh:

The basic reasoning why the role of Civil Society Organizations for Erradication of corruption has been prompted by even the United Nations is that corruption globally is of 'Political' Base. it is obvious that most politicians will vehemently deny this and say 'all politicians are not corrupt', much the same way Pakistan responds the the charge of terrorism.

Do people believe Parliament is going to pass the right Lokpal Bill on it's own ? I see the Lokpal battle go the long way as the freedom struggle did.

Vineet Dubey:
why do we need lokpal in the first place? And if the Lokpal gets corrupt would you want to get Dharampal?

Manish Singh :
‎Vineet Dubey, Bro, I know you are still our History and Civics teacher's mistake, like I was until job-ex taught me that Corruption in India…

Letter to the DPA in regard to style of Management on board ships

Dear Capt Leboffe:

I am writing this mail to express some thoughts I have in my mind after attending the seminar.

I was initially intending to talk to you about my promotion, as to what are the company plans on this. There was a collective meeting organized with all mates, masters, second engineer and chief engineers in a room, which I had also attended. Here is a summary of inferences I could draw up on this meeting and the seminar as a whole .

In the room, the most common question that people sought to know was about the promotion policy and its sincere implementation. Even when already in know of the standard answer of the company, which is ‘three recommendations from three different masters’, I think the more discreet question people wanted to seek was – what?, if the aspirants are finding it hard to obtain the three recommendations.

The appraisal report and system came under scrutiny at this juncture. Some people , particularly old masters, believed that closed appraisal system …

The cost saving sense of a new arrived manager:

Seeing the huge amout of losses to the company due to poor maintenance of machinery, the management decided to adopt the Planned maintenance system (PMS) whereof to change the part before it suffered fatigue failure. The new talented manager arrived to improve company's profit through cost-cutting and wastage-control by asking everyone to run the part until it broke down.

 Moral of the story: Know the background, take interest in history, otherwise you will undo what has itself been done as a best solution to certain problem. _______________________________________________________________________________ Your system can be abused against yourself by shrewd people , if you become too generous to allow counter-balancing views.

Why is it hard to speak that the division of a country happened on the lines of religion- Islam, so many times. Curzon did it of bengal; then Pakistan happened, and last, the Bangladesh. The cause of distrust ar…

Signs of a low-intelligence group

Signs of a low-intelligence group:

Extra emphasis on an issue, which is other wise is very insignificant, trivial. Repeat presentation of some matter at every place. Lack of creativity in scrutinizing the issue. Incoherent connection of Incidence A with Observation B. They generally keep better in the company of other low intelligence people. Every individual in the group shows the characteristics listed over here. Words of any person are perceived as a stand being taken on some issue and talks tend to proceed into a fight. Extra desire to be seen as humorous and funny, - witty , in short, to establish one's superior intelligence. A smaller and obvious cross-question on a matter is presented as though a great wisdom has been chanced upon and which was unthinkable by others. The sense of humor : mostly comes from making fun of something, or somebody; has excessive scatological talks, and obscenities. The tendency to take the cover of belief; Facts-based inference are negated by putt…
