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

An email alert by a social activist, Chandra Vikash, who is convener of the Global Academy for Indigenous Activism (GAIA) and chief mentor and innovation coach at the GAIA Innovation Labs, apparently seeks to address #ResignModi hashtag, which he claims has received support from more than a hundred million Indians.
Indirectly contesting the There Is No Alternative (TINA) theory being floated in some circles to counter the  #ResignModi campaign, Vikash, interestingly, offers himself as the alternative, suggesting a series of measures he proposes to take. 
Read on his email alert:
***
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.

When phone tapping rumours were afloat in Gujarat among BJP leaders, IAS babus

Gordhan Zadaphia By Rajiv Shah While alerts were coming in over the last few days about a series of articles on how phones of “journalists, ministers, activists” may have been used to spy on them with the help of an Israeli project, Pegasus, finally, when I got up on Monday morning, I saw a Times of India story quoting (imagine!, we never used to do this, did just a followup in case we missed a story) the Wire, a top news portal on this providing some details, along with government reaction.

Gandhi Ashram 'redevelopment': Whither well-known Gandhi experts, Gandhians?

Sudarshan Iyengar, Ramchandra Guha Rehabilitating about 200 families, mostly Dalits, living in the Gandhi Ashram premises by offering them Rs 60 lakh in order to implement a Rs 1,200 crore project called Gandhi Ashram Memorial and Precinct Development Project reportedly to bring the Ashram into its "original shape" as Gandhi established appears to me strange, to say the least.

Gandhi Ashram eviction: Finally historian Guha speaks out; but ageing trustees are silent

By Rajiv Shah Finally, at least one expert, top historian Ramachandra Guha, has spoken out on eviction of 200 families living in the Gandhi Ashram premises. Last week, I received an email alert from a veteran academic, Ashoke Chatterjee, former director, National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad, which happens to be one of the most prestigious academic institutes of India based, informing me about it. NID is one of the several top institutes founded when Jawaharlal Nehru was India’s Prime Minister.

Will Vaishnaw, close to Modi since Vajpayee days, ever be turnaround man for Railways?

By Rajiv Shah Ever since Ashwini Vaishnaw was appointed as railway minister, I was curious to know who he was and how did he come closer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and, most important, when. Hence, I decided to talk with some Sachivalaya officials in Gujarat in order to find out if there was, if any, Gujarat (or Modi) connection.

Non-entity 6 yrs ago, Indian state turned Fr Stan into world class human rights defender

Jharkhand's Adivasi women  By Rajiv Shah A lot is being written on Father Stan Swamy, a Jesuit priest who is known more for his work for tribal rights in Jharkhand. His death at the age of 84, even when he was an under trial prisoner for his alleged involvement in the Bhima Koregaon violence three years go, has, not without reason, evoked sharp reaction, not just in India but across the world.

Home Ministry data vs Health Ministry data! Gujarat's poor sex ratio at birth data

Home minister Amit Shah, health minister Harsh Vardhan By Rajiv Shah Don’t India’s top ministries – of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and of Home Affairs (MoHA) – tally data before releasing them? It would seem so… A few days back, I did a story in Counterview , based on an MoHA report, stating that Gujarat has the lowest sex rate at birth (SRB) at 901 girls as against 1000 births, followed by Assam (903), Madhya Pradesh (905) and Jammu & Kashmir (909), raising valid apprehensions that widescale female foeticide may be prevalent in India’s “model” State.

Gujarat cadre woman IAS official who objected to Modi remark on sleeveless blouse

By Rajiv Shah Two days back, a veteran journalist based in Patna, previously with the Times of India, Ahmedabad, phoned me up to inform me that he had a sad news: Swarnakanta Varma, a retired Gujarat cadre IAS bureaucrat, who was acting chief secretary on the dastardly Godhra train burning day, February 27, 2002, which triggered one of the worst ever communal riots in Gujarat, has passed away due to Covid. “I have been informed about this from a friend in Jaipur, where she breathed her last”, Law Kumar Mishra said.

Positive side of Vaishnaw? Ex-official insists: Give him loss making BSNL, Air India

By Rajiv Shah A senior chartered accountant, whom I have known intimately (I am not naming him, as I don’t have his permission), has forwarded me an Indian Express (IE) story (July 18), “Ashwini Vaishnaw: The man in the chair”, which, he says, “contradicts” the blog (July 17), "Will Vaishnaw, close to Modi since Vajpayee days, ever be turnaround man for Railways?" I had written a day earlier and forwarded it to many of my friends.

Why this marriage of son of non-IAS babu, earlier in Gujarat, became an event in Kerala

AK Vijay Kumar By Rajiv Shah Many say, marriages are made in heaven. However, as a confirmed non-believer, I don’t seem to think that way. But if one were to believe that marriages are indeed made in heaven, would the guests who are invited in some of the high-profile weddings also decide the destiny of the newly weds? I don’t know. Yet, the fact is, the competition to invite guests at such weddings is something I noticed after I came to Ahmedabad in 1993 to join as assistant editor of the Times of India.
