Re: [IAC#RG] Future direction of the India Against Corruption movement

Dear Sarabjit,
 I have been reading the interesting material being circulated by you and am fully convinced that we must all act against corruption which is ruining our country.
However,  words alone will not take us anywhere.Talking to each other is fine but where is the ORGANISATION/  PLAN  /  ACTION?

A few suggestions:
  1)Make a group which will receive information requiring action. They will screen and provide a second group to take action.
  2)The second group will go into the field and get the corrupt into trouble.No individual can do this as he will not know how to proceed and will fear repercussions. Also much follow up is needed as otherwise the corrupt get away.
  3) Tie up with organisations like " I PAID A BRIBE " to develop cases for action.
  4)I believe Courts now accept video clips as proof. In any case Departments do.Any employee caught on camera can be quickly suspended ,at half pay(Govt. rules permit this), and dismissed from service with no pension.Such action ,once started, will scare terribly and reduce corruption.
  5)We will need to develop a tech. group to provide assistance for video surveillance. Expert skilled individuals/gadgets ,training etc. will be involved
 6)Funds will be needed to do all this and another group will need to do fund raising. There are several international organisations providing considerable funds for such work; all of us will also pitch in.
  7)A legal assistance group will be needed for seeing cases thru courts
  8)Yet another group will be needed to collect and disseminate info re candidates standing for election to help elect honest/efficient/non-criminal persons.
 9)An office space will be required to operate from.

ACTION produces tremendous euphoria /motivation ;let us go for it in a big way.
Unless we begin attacking the problem there is little chance of getting anywhere
Wishing your effort success,

Dear Friends and fellow patriots.

Its been 7 months since IAC began formally jettisoning everybody who did not share our common vision of how India shall become a great nation where citizens are respected and accorded their rights equally.

Now, it was never the intention of IAC to be a intellectual group for idle chatter, as IAC's foes (and there are many of them), have been led to believe. IAC's strengths actually lie hidden elsewhere as every ruling party knows but cannot express in public.

So it is better that I speak frankly now on the direction the intellectual side of the IAC movement will be taking. But first a few basic truths (as IAC sees them) so that those who disagree can unsubscribe themselves :-

1) The vast majority of citizens are insignificant when it comes tackling real corruption. Citizens are the disease and not its cure. 

2) The entire system of governance is completely corrupt. There is not a single democratic institution left standing which is not afflicted by corruption or taken over by vested interests. In particular the 2 institutions which are supposed to act as bulwarks against the State - the Judiciary and the Media have been afflicted even more by corruption's rot than the rot within the Government. The less said about the present state of the Indian Defence Services and our para-military fighting forces the better.

3) Today it is impossible for a private citizen to avail either the Judiciary or the Media unless his interest and that of the institution converge. IAC has learned this the bitter way when we refused to accept (as a honest and principled apolitical movement) the profit sharing deals offered to us by some media houses offering to "run" our campaign.

4) India is going to be under election fever for the next 8 months so to expect that anything on anti-corruption beyond shrill rhetoric and false promises will be achieved is a pipe dream. Better we stay rooted to reality and tangible deliverables instead of futile / time-pass discussion on mailing lists.

5)  Being blacklisted by all media networks, IAC shall be setting up its own online and grassroots media outlets. IAC is entering the political information space to provide IAC's unique political and governance views to citizens at large and not only to our list subscribers. Having 57,000+ readers is simply not enough when we need to get IAC's focused message out to at least 20 times that number. (NB: There is an initial period of about 4 to 6 months required to "seed" our forthcoming non-traditional news platforms (which, just to clarify, is not based on social networks)

6) IAC has correctly read the present trend - 2014 is likely to have a 3rd front government with outside support, NaMo's elevation has started that process as we expected.  Election results in the 5 States going to assembly polls will show that, but interestingly a win for BJP in these States in 2013 will go against them in the Lok Sabha polls (except in Delhi). As all sides (including IAC) are constantly measuring the "mind" of the voter, all kinds of interesting combinations and strategies will be popping up to get that elusive "Wave".

2014 is going to be the most bitter campaign India has had so far (and IAC will be in the thick of it).

More soon.
