now modi is busy comparing himself to vajpayee..

the weird thing is , BJP did some work..India managed to see through 2008..ofcourse RBI policies also play their role..anyhow..congress got to reap benefits..now congress has left state in such a bad state..

even if modi does miracle..growth would be gradual..and i wonder if masses will feel he hasn't lived up to the expectation..and thus bringing congress again in power..and they get to reap benefits again..LOL..

India is in for some interesting times..

How i wish i knew someone who could read kundli..whats in India's future..LOL

Sanjay Gandhi publicly initiated a widespread compulsory sterilization programme to limit population growth.[10][11][12][13] Vinod Mehta in his 1978 book The Sanjay Story states that the sterilization programmes were initiated at the behest of the IMF and the World Bank:

"Forced sterilisation was by far the most calamitous exercise undertaken during the Emergency. The IMF and World Bank had periodically shared their fears with New Delhi about the uncontrolled rise in population levels. India's democracy was a hurdle: no government could possibly enact laws limiting the number of children a couple could have without incurring punishment at the ballot box. But with democracy suspended, the IMF and World Bank encouraged Indira to pursue the programme with renewed vigour. Indira and Sanjay, the self-styled socialists, inflicting on Indians the humiliation of forced sterilisation in order to appease western loan sharks: the irony was lost on them. Socialism, like much else, had been reduced to a slogan."
"David Frum, "Hold On To Your Penis, a review of The Sanjay Story by Vinod Mehta (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/11/29/hold-onto-your-penis.html)"

The implementation Sanjay Gandhi's programme was first based on voluntary sterilization, driven by incentives; however when that failed, the programme turned to forced sterilizations:

"Sanjay oversaw the sterilisation programme. Incentives - radio sets, cash, food - were offered at first to volunteers who put themselves under the knife. When these failed to attract big numbers, Sanjay handed down targets to government officials. The "find and operate" missions that followed were directed at the most vulnerable and defenceless individuals in the country. Mehta records a 70-year-old Dalit - formerly "untouchable" - man as saying, "I have no teeth, I am going blind, my child producing days are over, yet they made me go through the painful operation". One state reported 600,000 operations in two weeks. In another village, a widower was picked up from a bus and forcibly sterilised; he died of an infection soon after. Policemen on sterilisation assignments ransacked entire villages in their pursuit of adult men. The threat to drop bombs on villages was issued. Muslims were often specifically targeted. When people protested in one north Indian town, the local magistrate announced his determination to "f**k their mothers" - "an expression which is," Mehta assures the readers, "much more colourful in the original Hindi." Thirty people were killed in the carnage that ensued. Eventually, obtaining even the most basic government services "depended on being able to produce a sterilisation certificate," giving rise to an enormous demand for forged certificates."
