Dr Rahi Masoom Raza

मेरा नाम मुसलमानों जैसा है

मुझ को क़त्ल करो और मेरे घर में आग लगा दो

मेरे उस कमरे को लूटो जिसमे मेरी बयाने जाग रही है और

मै जिसमे तुलसी की रामायण से सरगोशी करके कालिदास के मेघदूत से यह कहता हू

मेरा भी एक सन्देश है !

मेरा नाम मुसलमानों जैसा है

मुझ को क़त्ल करो और मेरे घर में आग लगा दो

लेकिन मेरी रग़-रग़ में गंगा का पानी दौड़ रहा है

मेरे लहू से चुल्लू भर महादेव के मुह पर फेको और

उस महादेव से कह दो- महादेव अब इस गंगा को वापस ले लों

यह जलील तुर्कों के बदन में गढ़ा गया लहू बनकर दौड़ रही है


China and india

Why is China ahead of India? One answer is that India has paid inadequate attention to the lessons of Asian economic development, which gives a crucial role to the rapid expansion of human capability as a part of pursuing fast economic growth. A critical part of that strategy has been the use of public revenue, itself expanded by economic growth, to remove huge deficiencies in social, educational and health services, and to meet the growing demands of social and physical infrastructure, while making public services more accountable and efficiently organized.


India China skirmishes near trijunction of China India and Bhutan at doklam may be new in geographical sense but it is not new otherwise. We have witnessed so many confrontations on eastern and western sides of our boundaries. But what is the new and interesting facts this time one can figure out is timing and geographical context.

Firstly if we talk about geographical context then it is clear that this region of middle part of our long sharing boundaries witnessed first time this kind of scuffle.before this we have dispute on eastern side regarding arunachal Pradesh or in western side regarding aksai chin. But I think ,China’s only intention to prop up confrontation in this new region is to force India to give and take.

Secondly the timing of this issue can be seen in the context of Modi and Trump first bilateral meeting which world is watching keenly. The clear message which China wants to convey through this that if you involve US too much in Asian affair then they will create so many obstacles like this.

But I think India  should not worry about that and try to resolve this through high level talk and if possible back channel talks. Our relationship is time testing and became mature even to resolve these issues keeping in mind sovereignty and integrity of each other. These two countries have to understand that by getting closer to one country doesn’t mean loosening relationship with another country. This century will be witnessed alliance and grouping of countries not on ideological basis but on issues basis which early evidences can be seen in case of Paris deal .we both have to understand that if we want to make 21st century as Asian century then we have to resolve and avoid such types of issues.


80% of Teesta catchment area lies in India, and according to Wiki, Teesta has a baseline draft of more than 7000m with a hydel potential of 84 GW of which till now less than 5% has been utilised. India should go slow on sharing waters Of Teesta. Hydel potential cannot be harnessed in Bangladesh. Any faulty agreement might lead to minimum discharge flooring leading to a cap in utilisation of Teesta’s full hydel potential. We can share Teesta electricity with Bangladesh instead of water.



These two words are generally used interchangeably but the fact of the matter is there is some differences between them. Through this article we try to understand this comprehensivelly specially in Indian context.

The predominant role of this sector can hardly be ignored as the NSS survey report on “Informal Sector and Conditions of Employment in India, 2004-05” shows that out of the total workers, nearly 82 per cent in the rural areas and 72 per cent in the urban areas were engaged in the informal sector. The Government realizing criticality of the development of this sector established the National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganized Sector (NCEUS) in 2004 as an advisory body. The aim of the Committee is to bring about improvement in the productivity and generation of large scale employment opportunities on a sustainable basis, particularly in the rural areas. NCEUS has estimated that in 2005 there were 423 million informal workers in India of which 395 million belonged to the informal sector. The remaining 28 million were informal workers in the Informal sector.

In the survey conducted by NSSO, NSSO defines the informal sector enterprises comprise of all unincorporated proprietary and partnership enterprises. However, National Accounts Statistics (NAS) defines the unorganised sector in addition to the unincorporated proprieties or partnership enterprises, includes enterprises run by cooperative societies, trust, private and limited companies.


The informal sector can therefore, be considered as a sub-set of the unorganised sector.

However, in a detailed report titled Report on Definitional and Statistical Issues Relating to the Informal Economy was submitted in 2008 in which the Commission has recommended that the Informal Sector be defined as “The unorganized sector consists of all unincorporated private enterprises owned by individuals or households engaged in the sale and production of goods and services operated on a proprietary or partnership basis and with less than ten total workers”.

The unorganised sector refers to those enterprises whose activities or collection of data is not regulated under any legal provision or do not maintain any regular accounts. For instance, the units that are not registered under the Factories Act, 1948 form the unorganised composition of the manufacturing sector. Organised sector is the sector which comprises enterprises regarding which statistics are available from the budget documents or reports etc.

  1. I found myself in dilemma on the argument given by my friend that indian government should not pay much attention in the matter of probe related to the link of subhash chandra bose death and Russian angle. He emphasised that it may hurt the current relation of India and Russia and most importantly you can not held responsible to present generation Russian for something which their forefather genaeration might have done in Stalin regime.The point is that should we impose something on current generation for the action of their forefather?
  2. One of my friend who was my classmate has taken admission in college by taking advantage of his freedom fighter quota .another of my friend has got admission through schedule cast quota.These two cases says a lot about the acceptance of the fact that in our society we have tradition to accrue the advantage or disadvantage of our forefathers deed.
  3. In my opinion the transmission of deed of one generation should not have much power and if current generation of Russian cant held responsible then why current generation of youth should be make culprit for injustice one by their forefather.
  4. what can be done is identification of much needed must insure. the beneficiary should be only who has economical and social condition is in most debilitating condition irrespective of cast ,class and community,if we have to make cast less society then first step one should think is that consider reservation on other basis then cast.
  5. one may argue that how can precisely identify that who is in such condition and eligible for reservation.this is obsolet question because we came far away from time this question arose.If government can find precisely those persons who are eligible for subsidy then it is not a big task for them to find it actual social and economical condition of its own citizenary. Recent technological development like big data analysis and JAM(jandhan adhar mobile) may helpfull in identification of same.One thing is clear that if intention is such and you really want to do then these methods may not cen percent helpfull in identification but easily weed out unwanted beneficiary cen percent and you can make system more transparent and efficent.
