#ResignModi vs TINA factor: This activist insists, he can indeed be an alternative!

Chandra Vikash* answers the question: After Modi who?
***
With the election results in five states on May 2, and more than a hundred million Indians who have petitioned online with hashtag #ResignModi together with the resound drubbing by the global media projecting him as a narcissist and a disaster, it is a bygone conclusion that Modi should resign or will be forced out by the people very soon. In such an event, do we have a replacement for him in place?
After Modi who?
I don’t see anyone from the existing power circle – as coming forward or finding support with people given the widespread anger and resentment. It will therefore have to be a dark horse who can rise up to the challenge to bring together India’s diversity and differences, conflicts and contradictions and transform them into new synergies and opportunities to rise up and to save the country from sinking further into despair and disillusionment.
In such a scenario, fully aware of our deep and complex challenges at this critical juncture of a dire health and economic emergency, and confident of my knowledge and capabilities to respond to these challenges, I am putting up my self-nomination for the position of Prime Minister and call upon all of you for your support and contributions to my campaign.
I must also reiterate that I would always welcome a better candidate that any of you might suggest or even self-nominate. I shall be happy to give my full support and carry out whatever responsibility assigned to me. In support of my candidature, I would like to share this design of LACE-GAIA Model which will lay the foundation for India to re-establish itself as Sone ki Chidiya and earn respect as Vishvaguru Bharat in the new world order as the dust settles on which direction the Great Reset should take.
From a zero political figure, I hope to emerge as the frontrunner to replace outgoing PM Modi within next 72 hours with your love support and good wishes. Here is why and how for a quick read. Your comments queries and suggestions are always welcome for more.

Why 

What makes me so confident and sure of winning is my simple belief that India needs a uniting figure who can transform our delicate diversity and deep divisions into a beautiful collage called Synergy and Emergence. I am aware of our strengths and opportunities as well as constraints and limitations as one of my favorite quote goes – “No artist paints on an infinite canvas. Constraints fuel creativity.”
I believe that with my harmonious approach and powerful belief that to win truly is when no one really loses out is the need of the hour. That is the power of creativity that I hope to paint on the canvas of synergy and emergence.

How!

All I need from you is to copy and share this post with your own cover note with the hashtag #SynergyAndEmergence on all social media platforms.
Will this work?It all depends on you. Yes, this is bold and ambitious but like my other favorite quote goes: "Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.” Making sense of the posts and responses since the election results in various states, here is a thinking aloud on a way forward:
Dissolve Congress party: Organise the cadre and resources into Lok Seva Sangh abiding by Gandhi’s wishes which have been long overdue.
Isolate Modi-Shah within BJP: Reinvigorate the spirit of pluralistic BJP of Atal era with its credo of Nation First, diluting their venomous hate-filled corrupt and divisive agenda and re-infuse harmony and Bharatiyata into the cadres preparing the ground for their removal and trial for their criminal misconduct.
Bring in all the regional parties within the greater NDA fold: Making it virtually Partyless and truly Federal with greater power for the states moving right up to Gram Panchayat and Nagarpalika.Welcome your feedback ideas and suggestions on what better options might be available.
PS: Indecisiveness or procrastination till 2024 must simply be ruled out.

Why's Govt of India reluctant to consider battery storage system for renewal energy?

By Shankar Sharma*  If having so many small size battery energy storage system (BESS) at different locations of the grid, as in the report from Australia (a portfolio of 27 small battery storage projects across three Australian states that will total arounds 270 MWh), is considered to be techno-economically attractive in a commercially driven market such as Australia, the question that becomes a lot more relevance to Indian scenario is: why are our planners not in favour of installing such small size BESS at most of the distribution sub-stations not only to accelerate the addition of RE power capacities, but also to minimise the need for large size solar/ wind power parks, dedicated transmission lines and pumped storage plants; which will also minimise the associated technical losses.

Swami Vivekananda's views on caste and sexuality were 'painfully' regressive

By Bhaskar Sur* Swami Vivekananda now belongs more to the modern Hindu mythology than reality. It makes a daunting job to discover the real human being who knew unemployment, humiliation of losing a teaching job for 'incompetence', longed in vain for the bliss of a happy conjugal life only to suffer the consequent frustration.

A Hindu alternative to Valentine's Day? 'Shiv-Parvati was first love marriage in Universe'

By Rajiv Shah*   The other day, I was searching on Google a quote on Maha Shivratri which I wanted to send to someone, a confirmed Shiv Bhakt, quite close to me -- with an underlying message to act positively instead of being negative. On top of the search, I chanced upon an article in, imagine!, a Nashik Corporation site which offered me something very unusual. 

'Failure of governance': India, China account for 54% pollution-related deaths globally

By Vikas Parsaram Meshram*   A recent report jointly prepared by UNICEF and the independent research organization Health Effects Institute has been released, and the statistics within it are alarming. It states that in 2021, air pollution caused the deaths of 2.1 million Indians, including 169,000 children who hadn't yet fully experienced life. These figures are indeed distressing and raise questions about why there hasn't been more serious effort in this direction, putting policymakers to shame. 

New MVA-INDIA MPs asked to raise Maharashtra milk farmers' demand

By Our Representative  All-India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) national president Dr Ashok Dhawale and AIKS Maharashtra general secretary Dr Ajit Nawale have asked three newly-elected MPs of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA-INDIA) from the milk belt of Maharashtra Dr Amol Kolhe (NCP),  Bhausaheb Wakchaure (SS), and Nilesh Lanke (NCP), to take up the cause of milk farmers of Maharashtra in Parliament.  After congratulating them on their resounding victory over their BJP-NDA rivals, the AIKS leaders apprised them of the milk farmers struggle which is intensifying in the state under the leadership of the AIKS and the Milk Farmers Joint Struggle Committee, and requested them to support it. All three MPs agreed not only to support, but also to take the initiative in this struggle, an official AIKS communique claimed. Farmers in Maharashtra are currently getting as low as Rs 24-27 per litre for cow milk, which is being sold in the market for Rs 56-60 per litre, the AIKS leaders noted. The low price to farmer

Report suggests Indian democracy 'hasn't achieved' equitable economic decentralization

By Vikas Parsaram Meshram  The news that the current economic inequality in the country is worse than during British rule is unsettling. This suggests the harsh reality that our democracy has not achieved equitable economic decentralization. A recent report by Thomas Piketty and three other economists reveals shocking findings: in 2023-24, the top 1% of the wealthiest people in India hold 40% of the nation's wealth, with a 22.6% share in income.
