Vazegate, Supreme Court of India, and We

I altogether fail to understand how a society can expect to be any better, despite many isolated efforts by many, when it collectively and wholeheartedly continues to accept a mind-boggling enormous open international fraud and crime through Cricket in totality; tons of continuous blabber otherwise by it on myriad matters and issues, in the media and the social media, notwithstanding. Many such Vazegates or worse instances are bound to continue to surface now and then. I am sure many would agree with me, if they ponder over it sufficiently.

Irrespective of anything else, the million dollar question remains, ‘Why should the world be keeping deafeningly silent about such a humongous fraud and crime as international Cricket, while cribbing about every other petty or not so petty wrong and breaking its head about every other thing as to what should be and what should not be?’

The world is obliged to answer and will have to answer one day. It can’t escape for eternity.

 

The following is a news-clipping dated 24th March, 2021, on the infamous Vazegate that has been rocking in the Media for last few weeks. ( https://www.republicworld.com/india-news/general-news/vazegate-live-updates-supreme-court-to-hear-param-birs-plea-for-cbi-to-probe-hm-deshmukh.html ).

‘Taking note of the allegations levelled by Param Bir Singh against Maharashtra HM Anil Deshmukh, the Supreme Court bench observed that the matter is quite serious and made a remark on the material that has come out in public forum. “We have no doubt that the matter is quite serious and affects the administration at large. It also appears that a lot of material which has come in public domain is a consequence of the personas falling out,” the SC judgement said.’ 

The Supreme Court noted the above while directing the petitioner to approach the Bombay HC under Article 226 to seek a CBI probe into the alleged corrupt malpractices of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

These developments need a deep reflection. If the Supreme Court had no doubt, why did it not order the necessary CBI probe or issue necessary notices for it, as had been requested by the petitioner Mr Parambir Singh, ex Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, or take any other more suitable action itself? The Supreme Court had no doubt about the seriousness of the matter that affected the administration, and yet its action didn’t match at all with what it judged from the contents of the petition. If the matter was so serious, why give a scope for delays and may be no action at all in the end? Why not take required action immediately?

What do we do when there is fire? Is it not akin to fire in a society when none other than a police commissioner says that the police force, responsible for maintaining law and order, itself has become extortionist at the behest of the political bosses? Does it not mean that the systems and administration have gone to dogs? Does it not mean that the envisaged checks and balances have miserably failed? The Bombay High Court could take its own time and in the end could very well do nothing.

I am sure many educated and learned intellectuals will jump and retort, “Who the hell are you to find fault with or comment on a decision of Supreme Court of India? Don’t the learned judges know what is the best course? Is it their prerogative or any Tom, Dick or Harry’s prerogative what decision to take in what case?” I shall be inclined to grant them this because they don’t know or don’t understand who the hell I am. Because they have been conditioned thru their education not to appreciate the value and power of a well-meaning citizen, a member of the society, vis-a-vis the failed institutions and systems. Because they won’t know or comprehend or simply won’t acknowledge that while they had knowingly or unknowingly been acting as puppets in the hands of the totally debased Media that continues to set daily agenda for them, I am one who has been exposing their real master – the Media, and the other failed institutions, and charging them for last many years on the strength of irrefutable evidence and logic.

Those jumping and retorting don’t realize that the police having become extortionist – by admission of a police commissioner himself, and other failings they continue to crib about or criticize are all result of their own doing – their continuing haughtiness for years in being deaf and blind to an ongoing exposed and proven mammoth public fraud in name of Cricket. They are too conceited and hypocrites or imbecile not to accept or realize that had they been raising their voice against that as they must have been, many overdue systemic corrections would have been forced by now and would have set in. The world would not have been suffering as horribly as it is now from the treacherous management / mismanagement of the Corona pandemic and the resulting crisis by the thoroughly untrustworthy authorities and governments.

But alas! Many of us still find their fulfillment in the same idle talk and nothing but idle talk, even while they themselves or their ‘nears and dears’ continue to perish or suffer so badly! They are still too preoccupied in continuing to show off, exchanging borrowed half-cooked and hollow wisdom or engaged in meaningless debates of no consequence!

Coming back to the Supreme Court of India, it is a bit soothing to know that it had no doubt in finding the matter of allegations against the Home Minister of Maharashtra to be serious. But when thousands times more serious matter was brought to the notice of the same Supreme Court of India in late 2017 and was heard by it in February 2018, the matter that didn’t affect only a state’s administration but affected the Central Government and all the Law enforcing agencies of the country, that exposed the criminality of hundreds of big celebrities and national awardees, even Bharat Ratnas being among them, that exposed involvement of the country’s Corporate leaders in a mammoth fraud and crime, this august institution never expressed how serious the matter was. It went on acting such as to brush the matter under the carpet eventually, even at the cost of exposing itself naked in the process. At the cost of losing all the credibility, whatever it had.

In monetary terms alone, the fraud that was brought to the notice of the Supreme Court then was worth hundreds of billions of dollars per year as a result of looting millions of cricket bettors in India and the rest of the world through thoroughly fixed and scripted matches, in comparison to the allegations by Mr Parambir Singh of a target of extortion of a hundred crore rupees per month (about 170 million dollars per year) set by the Maharashtra Home Minister for the Maharashtra police . And that fraud is still continuing, prospering more and more every day since then, subsequent to the doings and undoing of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Other than money, that fraud has very vast social and political national and international implications including terror-funding and sham Indo-Pak relations.

For years the all powerful Supreme Court of India stands publicly and directly charged of criminality in being accessory to an ongoing elephantine public fraud and crime by protecting it, supported with indisputable documents on record (the book ‘We the Oodles’ and my earlier posts on VOM refer); and defenceless it has been keeping mum.

More than mum for years has been the same Media that is today making so much hue and cry about Vazegate and its various aspects, the same being linked to terrorism and Dawood also as I finalize this draft – some peanut in comparison, and it has been making much hue and cry about many other peanuts or not even peanuts all these years. Being itself mired in the crime from head to toe, the Media has been extra-cautious not to let people become aware of its existence. So much so, that the journalists like Chandramohan Puppala and Gulu Ezekiel have even been penning books on Cricket exhibiting their ignorance of or total disregard to the truth regarding the sport; thus further misleading the public and fooling themselves. The scores of esteemed editors have been acting deaf and dumb for years since their rank incompetence, stupidity, and professional chicanery will become too well-known if the masses became aware.

The details of the continuing fraud through Cricket painstakingly made public through my earlier books, press conferences, and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BettorsBeware about a decade ago and since then are too shocking and shameful for the human world at large. These are so shocking as to go beyond normal comprehension. It is almost impossible for one to believe that reality could be what it is and to assimilate it. Does it mean that we should go into denial mode and close our eyes forever? The way the fraud continues openly makes all the crime mysteries and thrillers pale and redundant. What remains there in a tit-bit fictional or real crime mystery when a crime of such a magnitude continues to flourish openly, making a total fool of all the law-enforcing agencies and millions of intelligent and highly intelligent beings and officials?

Do I enjoy lambasting the intelligentsia and the world repeatedly? Do I do it as an obsession? To feel important and big? I hope not. I am one among those whom I trounce. My very own, my friends, family, and relatives are among those whom I take to task. It is their large heartedness that they continue to tolerate me and have not yet exorcised me! It is with great pain that I speak. I continue repeating compelled by a simple reality. Like any mortal I may be gone any moment and dead men can’t speak anymore. Secondly, as a member of the society I also get adversely affected by its rottenness in more ways than one. I do yearn for things around me to improve, for the betterment of the mankind, even if these do not become ideal or ramrajya like.

I altogether fail to understand how a society can expect to be any better, despite many isolated efforts by many, when it collectively and wholeheartedly continues to accept a mind-boggling enormous open international fraud and crime through Cricket in totality; tons of continuous blabber otherwise by it on myriad matters and issues, in the media and the social media, notwithstanding. Many such Vazegates or worse instances are bound to continue to surface now and then. I am sure many would agree with me, if they ponder over it sufficiently.

Irrespective of anything else, the million dollar question remains, ‘Why should the world be keeping deafeningly silent about such a humongous fraud and crime as international Cricket, while cribbing about every other petty or not so petty wrong and breaking its head about every other thing as to what should be and what should not be?’

The world is obliged to answer and will have to answer one day. It can’t escape for eternity.
