Demonetization Move: Is it the smartest and the only way in a smartphone era?

Influence of money on politics in India – demonetization or note bandi Come May 8, 2017, a little after the close of financial year 206-17, six months will have been completed for the buzzword ‘note bandi’; most classes, including industry and labour, will have been done and dusted with assessment of pros and cons of demonetization. By the time an Indian Premier League fan opens lunch carrier tucked inside backpack to refuel for the evening work where he will attend chit fund gatherings to save for expenses of kith and kin, it must occur to him that the time spent on euphoria generated from Prime Minister’s rather inebriated short pitched ball of announcement, which has so far not gone any significant distance with uneven bounce of planning and insufficient carry of reality check, both from points of view of audience beside sight screen (voters) waiting for any blitzkrieg (instant money, solutions for perennial problems) and commentators (intelligentsia who may not necessarily have played the game), thanks to lifeless wicket (social and print media which combinedly propagated the idea of demonetization as an incredible option to curb black money and to stop counterfeit currency on its tracks), is indeed yet another Achilles heel on his brave face. What will have the fan do after returning home? Watch the Indian Premier League drawing parallelism of TV cricket and political cricket. Of course, when Prime Minister himself had to shift gears in redefining the very objectives of ‘note bandi’ amid reports that central bank was in constant know of the impending decision, the case of making the nation cashless or less cashed remains elusive leave alone making the nation corruption-free. The curious case that many fans of demonetization missed is that the government, with finance and revenue officials at its service and intelligence radars at its remote couldn’t locate black money holders in order to have official raids at the very same time the government had announced on November 8, 2016. Who stopped the government from collecting data and striking the corrupt without disturbing the system in place is still unanswered. And why the higher denomination of 2000 when all you needed a cashless or less-cash economy is not answered for it to stand firm against scientific scrutiny of rationale of whole exercise. The recent success of ruling party in Uttar Pradesh has little to do with discussion of black money although it appeared to have minor blow for the party’s prospects in western parts. So, has the demonetization failed? If it has, to what extent can the damage caused be resuscitated? If it has not, to what extent was the restructure successful? Okay, let’s assume the success of demonetization. From the words of announcement made by none other than Prime Minister, shocking withdrawal of legal tender was necessary for the government to keep in check fake currency printed for non-state functionaries like separatist groups and militants across Line of Actual Control. The second objective envisaged was to check growing menace of unaccounted…

New year has yet again come to take us through nuances of the nature with its spellbinding ability to create artefacts engaging our intrinsic motivations like before and our creative brain is set for a scintillating display of extravagance to make this place even better! Happy and productive New Year to all the readers of ScoopLense@Innovation We talked in this post briefly the previous New Year’s Day about life and many issues/problems/challenges as also opportunities /occasions it poses/brings in comparison to addition/multiplication that we do in regular mathematical operations.

What has environment taught us the incredible humans? CC: Industry Inc.

The world environment day on 5th June marked yet another day for the global buzzword environment to attract headlines and become the darling hashtag on social media platforms; industry spoke more on the subject than the lesser harmful street vendors and public in general. UNEP, the environment programme of the United Nations, dedicated this year to put an onus on minimizing illegal trade of wildlife while emphasizing on key areas of improvement, such as, maintenance of balance and harmony in ecological biodiversity and voluntary regulating checks on carbon emissions.

Brahmotsavam 2016 is for RAO RAMESH! CC: Mahesh Babu fans and Kajal fan base

Brahmotsavam 2016 review Original: Brahmotsavam, the annual celestial festival organised to worship Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy on the hill top Tirumala during September and October is a well attended event and occupies a sacred space in any Hindu individual’s calendar.  Sreekanth Addala surprised many by opting to go with the sacred name for a movie though common sense would instruct us to look at any movie as it is supposed to be viewed. Tollywood responded positively when Venkatesh Daagubati and Mahesh Babu Ghattamaneni played out as brothers when they set themselves up to an eye-opener in a meaningful dialogue from their father Prakash Raj with the movie introducing greenery of Godavari paddy fields and a series of regulation dialogues inside a family environment. Sreekanth Addala is not new to experimenting with fluctuations in individuals and their emotions which introduce them as either introverts or extroverts before others. His themes are always classic navigators to making individuals happier than they already were. The recipes from his story kitchen so far received applause from both family and youthful audience as he went on to create a niche for himself starting with Kotta Bangaru Lokam in 2008.  His left shoulder is the USP which made a grand entry with meaningful dialogues decked up at vantage points in story narration with little action on screen. His right shoulder rests on keyboard of Mickey J Meyer without having to worry as the latter is known for his class which can enthral mass on a regular basis.  Mukunda took many by surprise for the cinema lover actually needed to gauge love, politics, and sentiment from purely philosophy of human nature wherein Rao Ramesh played in fact the role of hero! Now Brahmotsavam starring Mahesh Babu and Kajal-Samantha duo is being screened in not less than 1500 screens in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana jointly. The movie speaks of nothing more than happiness spread across a turf of blood relations and endeavouring joy. The story asks for restoring a sense of belonging among differently and vastly performing actors on life stage. Imagine a life canvass where artists simply walk and paint their themes. In simple sense, the director walked away from spreading infinite happy moments the world over, which he successfully established in Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC) with Mahesh Babu and Samantha in lead pair, to a well defined set of relations with a chain of blood groups! How the director wanted: Director’s movie is what we can comprehend from the story lines, without giving in to stardom of Mahesh Babu and, we need to appreciate the bold undertaking from the charming hero of Tollywood after NTR in his peak years before storming Andhra Pradesh assembly. Sreekanth Addala didn’t seem he was interested in making audience sit for casual mix up of melo drama and rather familiar family stories which owe a lot to mother of family blockbuster movies, “the” Kalisundaam Raa in 2000. Movie starts off with a marriage function and token introduction of characters with…

India and Summer: Prevention is better than cure CC: Heat stroke and Dehydration

March 2016 had given us the hint of extent of summer and April confirmed how rattling heat wave can be. As it is near impossible to avoid direct sun light for many of us, working men and women, we can avoid major heat wave attacks with smart steps. Dos Air conditioners have become a necessity these days with growing menace of heat. Use air conditioners optimally so that you will not have to worry about external heat conditions and internal air conditions as you move back and forth. While you can start the AC with 21 degree Celsius initially you can always raise it to 25 in a span of 15 minutes and to 27 in an hour before settling the air after dehumidification at 29 degree Celsius. Places like Madhya Pradesh, Tamilnadu, coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh have seen rise in temperatures, so be smart enough to keep your surrounds extra cool. Coconut water, salt filled lemon water, and butter milk are the combination to watch out for; avoid soft drinks and ice cool milk shakes. If hard pressed for taste, Glucose is available with orange flavour. More fruits, more leafy vegetables, more water; less meat, less junk food, less juices with artificial flavours. Have good number of protein reserves to battle it out, especially add boiled eggs and fish with dal.

Happy Birthday, dear Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar! CC: Raina, Rohit, Kohli generation

ScoopLense wishes the Indian batting premier Sachin Tendulkar, a name that resonated back and forth for nearly quarter of a century in India, on his 44th birthday (born on 24 April in 1973)! Words and phrases run short, and if attempted, they might as well clear the fence of basic comprehension, typified as common sense. Here is an article, written not too long ago, with a sharp adjustment of views to readjust certain unhelpful criticism on Maestro’s batting contribution to Indian cricket. The post was written with an aim to classify shortcomings and rearrange them in the most unpopular theory that Tendulkar’s centuries yielded only in losses for his team. And there is another such, albeit less in intensity of defending Sachin against irrational arguments which didn’t seek his professional advancement but to marginalize euphoria and admiration of his growing fan base!  https://singlemagneticpole.wordpress.com/2013/03/02/india-will-not-lose-when-sachin-scores-a-century-india-will-not-win-if-sachin-falls-short-of-hundred-either/ https://singlemagneticpole.wordpress.com/2013/02/15/february-15-2003-super-sport-park-centurion/ Excerpts from second post: Before I explain you the comparison of an ODI knock prospect of World cup league game and a fourth innings fruitful knock between two batsmen rated ahead of peers, I would like you to draw your attention to the following. Australia and West Indies at Barbados, March 1999 – Result West Indies beat Australia by 1 wkt. Brian Lara inspired with SR of 59.76 in 355 minutes    to post a win on the fastest windies wkt. against  MCGRATH, GILLESPEI, AND WARNE with WI facing 120.1 overs for 311/9 in day and a half. India and Pakistan at Chennai, January 1999 – Result India lost to Pakistan by 12 runs. SR Tendulkar inspired with SR of 49.81 in 405 minutes     to take his side closer to win on a turner against AKRAM, WAQAR, AND SAQLAIN with IND facing 95.2 overs for 258 all out in > a day. “Sourav Ganguly won an important toss and decided to bat on a track that was quite similar to the one we had at The Wanderers where Aussies crushed Pakistan’s world class bowling line-up days ago. The conditions were as good as those on offer to every visitor in Brisbane, that if you just play average, it could be your game. Good rotation of strike, build up of partnerships, and good wicket-taking deliveries.” “And when you play against Australia that was in the shape, thanks to the heritage of Steve Waugh’s attacking mindset, you need to catch a few notches just in case. You definitely need to be an aggressive unit because you wouldn’t know when they talk down and when they do it they go to any extent, but that’s only on the field. Off the field, they are as better as anyone, probably offer you little comfort with words.” “Sachin at the non-striking end had to choose between the two ends; either attack Aussies and force them to commit mistakes and plunder some useful runs as it became evident he wasn’t going to get support, or, at the most see off overs and stay till the end of over quota. Things became clear to many of us back home…
