Judgment of CIC

Here's the link to the 7th March judgment of CIC dimissing my appeal.

Deepak Sandhu was the Information Commissioner hearing the appeal. The Deputy Secretary, Rajiv Mittal, had also been summoned.

The appeal was not be heard by Deepak Sandhu because she is not assigned the constitutional subjects. Yet, she passed an order.

The order is also not a speaking order, which means she should have explained her own reasons (in the sections of "Decision") and countering my reasons to justify her judgment.

I am more irritated by absence of an explanatory order than by the dismissal itself.

My date with history

7th March 2011

The date is set. In five days from today I'll attack at the weakest point in the system.

The weakness that has gone unnoticed for decades, hidden deep beneath clauses on which rules formed by articles of the constitution are run;
the assumptions which were never verified, and taken for granted.

It was a fatal weakness introduced on 20th Aug 1947, just 5 days after independence.

The results will have gargantuan effect. Suddenly, surreptiously, slowly this will have its effect. It contains truth. It will not be stoppable.

At the very top in the brain centre of this system, an almost insignificant small wire was hooked to a wrong end. Wrong it was, because the hooking done on 20th Aug , 1947 did not have any precedent nor any legal basis.

It just went unnoticed. Because it directly affected none. Because it was marked "confidential." And it set in. It let a culture develop. And we mistook that culture as culture of corruption inherent in our genes. Uncorrectable corruption problem, for decades, so it must be our genes, so we thought.

We, the people, are not corrupt in culture or genes. Its not in my genes and its not in yours. It never was, never will be.

The Indian corruption phenomenon is a symptom of that easily correctable error which does not require any law to be brought in, not a notification is needed.

I'll be telling this story for a long time to come.
If I win, we win. If I lose, I lose. Hope will still prevail.

My date with history is set.
