All the Politicians suffer from AIDS

Accelerated Immune Delivery Syndrome
(A Quality product from the Devil’s workshop)

I think all the politicians (in India at least) suffer from this syndrome. Politicians get infected with this disease at the beginning of their career and this grows slowly but surely with the growth in their careers.

This condition is caused by a retro virus called “power”. In India at least it is hereditary (and may be dynastic also) as it is passed from father to the offspring. Recently one such example of father to son transmission of “power” was noticed in North Korea. There could be other examples of this in other countries as well.

This is called retrovirus because; it acts like the HIV virus in slowly decreasing the concern for good human values. While the vocabulary continues to be prophetic, actions slowly degenerate into satanic culture. This is matched by the accelerated delivery of immune mechanism. This results in the person being immune to insults, criticism, ignominy, character assassination and others. on account of occurrence of certain symptoms which manifest themselves in to a syndrome. Hence it called as

Accelerated Immune Delivery Syndrome (AIDS)


The most prominent symptom of this condition is that Heart begins to shrink,( दिल तंग हो जाता है and there is hardly any room for feelings in it for even the family members.

The Brain expands and becomes hyperactive. It works tirelessly to work on ideas of discrimination, deceit, and defraud.

With the expansion of the Brain, A special memory cache is created to store wicked and crooked ideas.
The infected person develops a thick skin and is not affected by attacks, Physical, Mental, and Psychological.
He develops a general aversion to past relationships, personal and professional, and tends to form need based relationships based on other person’s capability to influence things favorably.

Occurrence of selective amnesia of convenience has been noticed in some patients..This results in forgetfulness about the promises and commitments made to people, however memory related  to receivables remains intact.

The person develops affinity towards spotless white attire, possibly to cover the spots on his soul and character.

Sometime the retrovirus “power” can get into an inactive phase and gets into a cystic condition. The infected person gets into a “no power” condition also called withdrawal symptoms.. This condition can be caused by the after effects of an environment called “election defeat”.

The withdrawal symptoms are sometimes more acute and severe than the infection symptoms. This condition results in the partial or total dysfunction of a part of the brain called cerebellum. The infected person tends to lose mental balance which results in speech and actions which are abnormal.

Note: Studies are underway to determine exactly to what extent an infected person can fall in esteem,morals,& scruples, we will update you with the stats as soon as we get it.


This condition can be prevented by inculcating good habits and Human Values from the childhood. Some politicians have implemented this and have set an excellent  example t in honest leadership and governance.

Certain NGOs with direct and indirect guidance from Dr. Abdul Kalam are working towards this objective by picking children from the school and imparting them the importance of Human Values, Time Management, Physical Mental & Psychological Development, Academic and Social and Cultural Values. These children are expected to grow up into future leaders of India and lead India to lead the world by 2020 in all aspects.

This is when this disease is expected to be wholly ad totally eradicated from India at least.

However such a huge task cannot be accomplished only by a handful of dedicated NGOs. Everyone can contribute in their way towards the eradication of dreadful disease.

Thanks for reading this article and please do whatever you can towards fulfilling Dr. Kalam’s vision for India by 2020.

Best wishes to all of us and India,

Big names often deliver small in Education ऊँची दुकान, फीका पकवान

Big names & places often deliver small in the field of education.

ऊँची दुकान, फीका पकवान

Politics in Education, No, No, No, Never.

Education in Politics (for politicians)???

Well, yes. But who is interested??? (Not politicians’ at least)

We have a situation in India where education institutions are mostly owned by politicians or their family members. Once a noble profession, it is now an industry. With new phrases being heard like ROI, breakeven, growth (for the institutions, not the students). In the midst of this, if we ask the question “Where are the values??” The prompt answer is “What are values? And how are they related to the industry??”

This when the corporate and the business are talking about end to end responsibility, corporate social responsibility, social accountability. Just when the commercial world is going societal, Education has totally transformed itself into a commercial entity.

Most of the educational institutions are investor run, Investors are the decision makers. However their ignorance is in a larger quantum then their knowledge when it comes to Academics. And this (ignorance) is what they contribute to the organization.The academicians associated have no say when it comes to financial matters like investments, salaries & amenities. Their time is mostly consumed in either defending or correcting the wrong speech and the actions of the investors.

This being the situation, how then is it possible for Academic staff to work for the elevation of imparting & comprehension standards. They also slowly get into an laid back mindset and start working more for their own survival then the prestige of the institution.

This is a stage where the citadel of education transform themselves into profit centers for business.  The names remain big but delivery is Small, Substandard and Insubstantial.

We have to search with magnifying glass to locate an institution owned and run by the educationist. The prestigious institutions of yesteryear that were delivering value along with the education have become irrelevant and redundant in today’s context. Parents are no longer sending their children here because these institutions lack the glamour and the corporate status.They are mostly catering to the economically poor students who are not able to afford five star cost of the corporate institutions. 

This being the scenario, you feel a breath of fresh air when you visit the few prestigious institutions, which have been there since a long time delivering value in education and still continuing the same. Some of the University campuses (only some) have still retained the same serenity, dignity, simplicity, and continue to be the temples of learning; they were once famously regarded as.

One thing I have found very surprising, (and reassuring) is that educational institutions located in smaller towns are maintaining higher  standards in education than their counterparts located in larger towns, districts, cities and metros. The student quality is also is very high. They may be low on the general knowledge IQ, but are very high on relevant subject knowledge IQ. Reverse is the case with the students from larger cities where general & social media IQ is very huge resulting in a much depleted subject IQ. These I tell you are the students from the so called prestigious institutions owned by the famous politicians.

I humbly request the organisations going for the campus recruitment to probe the colleges in the rural areas if they are serious about techno savvy candidates, instead of socio savvy candidates.

What is the remedy for the present situation?

Now how to transform these institutions from centers imparting curriculum, to temples imparting values and education?

Please join the discussions with your valuable inputs.

Best wishes,

Please also read my  featured article in wiki " How to impart STEM education to your children"

"When it comes to technological innovation, the United States remains number one. Yet, among 15-year-olds worldwide, the US ranks 29th in math literacy, falling behind Finland, Croatia, the Czech Republic, and Liechtenstein. This means that the US delivers a less-than-excellent education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM education). Due to the declining quality of public primary and secondary education as well as an overall lack of financial and societal support (only 10 percent of children's TV characters are scientists or engineers), fewer young American students are showing an interest in STEM education".
