Regular readers know that I’m a *BIG* supporter of Baba Ramdev and “our” campaign to bring India’s black money deposited in foreign banks back to ‘our’ country. Why am I supporting Baba Ramdev when lot of *intellectuals* are against him and his campaign? The answer is – because I have brain and others are idiots. I’ve the ability to think, analyze and understand what he’s talking about and doing. First of all, Bharat Swabhimaan is a brain child of the legendary hero, late. Shri. Rajiv Dixit, an engineer, scientist and a great patriot who devoted his life to telling people about the real India, our glorious past and what we should be doing right now. I’m highly influenced by Rajiv Dixit’s talks and recommend everyone to listen to them on YouTube.
Why is the issue of black money important?
Unfortunately, money can buy 99% of the things; sans happiness. Money gives the corrupt politicians power to alter mindsets and get the things done their way. Unless we cut down access to giga amounts of unaccounted money, corrupt politicians will always have an upper hand in the battle against corruption. Shri. Rajiv Dixit had suggested practical & legal ways of bringing black money back to India. As long as the black money remains deposited in foreign banks and only accessible to the depositors, the fight against corruption is going to be tough.
Baba Ramdev, Subramanian Swami, Ram Jethmalani and associates are aware of this problem and that’s why I think Government took a very hard stand against Baba Ramdev on June 4, 2011. Politicians know that if they lose their control over the black money deposited in Swiss banks, managing people is going to be difficult and they will be doomed. They’ll do absolutely anything to protect their black money.
