பொருளாதார குற்றங்கள் பெருகுவதற்கு ஒரு முக்கிய காரணம் நமது நீதி மன்றங்கள் !

நமது நாட்டில் அரசியல்வாதிகள் ஈடுபடும் பொருளாதார குற்றங்கள் பெருகுவதற்கு ஒரு முக்கிய காரணம் நமது நீதி மன்றங்கள் ! எருமை மாட்டை வீட மிகவும் தாமதமாக இயங்கும் நீதிபதிகள், திறமை அற்ற நீதிபதிகள் , ஊழல் நீதிபதிகள் மற்று அரசியல் தொடர்பு உடைய நீதிபதிகள் ! ” தாமதபடுத்தபட்ட நீதி தடுக்கப்பட்ட நீதி ” என்பது பழைய மொழி . ” தாமதபடுத்தப்பட்ட நீதி விலை பேசப்படும் நீதி ” என்பது புது மொழி. துரஷ்டவசமாக நமது சட்டங்கள் ” நீதிபதிகள் ஊழல் செய்வதற்கும், திறமை அற்றவர்களாக இருப்பதற்கும் துணை போகிறது ” .கொள்ளை அடித்து குற்றம் புரிந்தவர்கள் கவலை எல்லாம் எப்படி தப்பிக்கலாம் என்று கணக்கு போடுகின்றார்கள் – அந்த அளவுக்கு இந்த நாட்டில் நீதி, நேர்மை சீர் கெட்டு போயுள்ளது. 
ஒரு கம்பெனியில் முதலீடு செய்யவேண்டுமென்றால் எந்த உத்தரவாதமும் கேட்பதில்லை. கனிமொழியின் வாதமே, நாங்கள் பங்கு பரிவர்த்தனைக்காக பணம் பெற்றோம். உடன்பாடு வராததால் பணத்தை கடனாக பாவித்து வட்டியுடன் திருப்பி கொடுத்து விட்டோம் என்பது தான். ஊழல் பணத்தை யாரும் உள்ளூர் வங்கிக்கணக்கில் வாங்க மாட்டார்கள் என்பது இங்கு பதிவு செய்துள்ள அறிவு ஜீவிகளுக்கு புரியவில்லை. மேலும் கம்பெனி சட்டத்தின் கீழ் பதிவு செய்ப்பட்ட நிறுவனம் ஒருவரிடம் பணம் வாங்கினால் கடனாளர்(debtors ) அல்லது பங்குதாரர் (shareholder ) ஆகத்தான் கணக்கில் காட்டமுடியும் என்பது கணக்கியல் வரையறை (accounting Standards ) விதி. இதில் யாரும் தப்ப முடியாது. ஊழல் பணத்தை வாங்கி யாராவது ஷேர்ஸ் கொடுப்பார்களா? அல்லது காலம் முழுவதும் கடனாளர்களாக காட்ட்த்தான் முடியுமா? கணக்கியல் தெரிந்தவர்களுக்கு இந்த விஷயம் புரியும். விதண்டாவிதமாக கருத்து சொல்லும் கந்தசாமிகளுக்கு எப்படி புரியும்.

ஊழல் புகார் விஸ்வரூபம் : தப்பிப்பாரா தயாநிதி

முதலில் வருபவர்களுக்கு முன்னுரிமை என்ற அடிப்படையில் ஒதுக்கீடு வழங்கப்பட்டது என்பதும்தான். இந்த நடைமுறை, ஆ.ராசா வுக்கு முன் தகவல் தொடர்புத் துறை அமைச்சராக இருந்த தயாநிதி மாறன் காலத்திலும் நடைமுறையில் இருந்தது என்பதை, நீதிபதி சிவராஜ் பாட்டீல் கமிஷனின் அறிக்கை தெளிவாகச் சுட்டிக்காட்டுவதால், தயாநிதி கையில் இத்துறை இருந்த காலத்தில் ஏற்பட்ட இழப்புக்கு யார் பொறுப்பு என்ற கேள்வி சுழன்றடிக்கிறது .
 
மத்திய அரசு அமைத்த ஓய்வு பெற்ற நீதிபதி சிவராஜ்    பாட்டீல் தலைமையிலான குழு அளித்துள்ள அறிக்கையில், ஒதுக்கீட்டு விதிமுறைகளை பல முறை தயாநிதி மாறன் மீறியிருக்கிறார்’’ எனக் குறிப்பிடப்பட்டுள்ள நிலையில், இது போன்ற ஒரு விதிமீறல்களால் தயாநிதியின் சகோதரர் கலாநிதி மாறனின் சன் டி.வி. நிர்வாகம் 700 கோடி ரூபாய் பலனடைந்திருப்பது பற்றிய செய்தியை தெஹல்கா வெளி யிட்டுள்ளது.

ஸ்பெக்ட்ரம் ஒதுக்கீடு தொடர்பாக மத்திய நிதியமைச்சகத்தின் கருத்துகளை தயாநிதி மாறனின் துறை கேட்கவில்லை என்கிறது அறிக்கை. குரூப் ஆஃப் மினிஸ்டர்ஸின் தலையீடு இல்லாமல், ஸ்பெக்ட்ரம் கட்டணம் தொடர்பாக  தொலைத் தொடர்புத்துறையே முடிவெடுக்க வேண்டும் என பிரதமருக்கு தயாநிதி கடிதம் எழுதியிருந்தார். இதை பிரதமரும் ஏற்றுக் கொண்டார்.

2001ஆம் ஆண்டு கட்டணத்தின்படி, 2007-ல் பொறுப்பேற்ற ஆ.ராசா, ஸ்பெக்ட்ரம் ஒதுக்கீடு செய்தார் என்ற சி.பி.ஐ.யின் குற்றச்சாட்டின் அடிப்படையில் அவர் சிறையில் இருக்கிறார். இத்தகைய ஒதுக்கீட்டுக்கான முன்னு தாரணத்தை உருவாக்கியவர் தயாநிதி மாறன்தான் என்கின்றனர் தொலைத்தொடர்புத்துறையினர்.

முதலில் வந்தவருக்கு முன்னுரிமை என்ற அடிப்படையில் ஸ்வான் டெலிகாம் நிறு வனத்துக்கு குறைந்த கட்டணத்தில் அலைக் கற்றைகள்  ஒதுக்கப்பட்டன என்பது ராசா மீதான குற்றச்சாட்டு. அதேபோலத்தான், ஏர்செல் நிறுவனத்துக்கும் குறைந்த  கட்டணத்தில் அலைக்கற்றைகள் ஒதுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன.

 
ஆனால், சன் டி.டி.ஹெச்சில் தயாநிதியின் சகோதரர் கலாநிதி மாறனுக்கும் அவரது மனைவி காவேரிக்கும் 80% பங்குகள் உள்ளன என்றும் தெஹல்கா குறிப்பிடுகிறது.

ஒதுக்கீட்டின் பிரதிபலன் என்ற கோணத்தில் பார்த்தால் ஆ.ராசா  மீதான வழக்கில் உள்ளவை அனைத்தும் தயாநிதி விஷயத்திலும் பொருந்துகிறது  என்கின்றன டெல்லி வட்டாரங்கள்.

    Since the Earth is also several million miles closer to the sun at that time of the year than in the summer, sunlight striking the moon was about 7% stronger making it brighter.

    If the room is too hot, the motion detector won’t register a change in the radiated heat of that person’s body when it enters the room and breaks the infrared beam.

Many famous left handed people have graced this earth. So many so there is an annual Left Handers Day, August 13th. Put this date on your calendar and we will celebrate together on this special day. Southpaws who have made an impact on the world have been brains, celebrities, artists, presidents, professional athletes, etc. In fact there are so many I have devoted several pages to each, provided at the end of this section. Michelangelo, Einstein and Ben Franklin are historical left handers. Bill Gates, Bill Clinton and even Oprah are current famous lefties. Believe me, there are many more left handers out there and many more to come. Its comforting to know you are in a very special class of people.
They are usually very creative and artistic. They are also prone to being ambidextrous, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, there are typically more left than right handed serial killers. Also, the left side was frowned upon in history. It meant clumsy or awkward, like the term two left feet. The French word “gauche” means left, pertaining to the word gaucherie which means awkward. The lefties used to be scolded but are now accepted as unique and there are many facilitating contrivances these days like left handed scissors and steno notepads.
Left handed people are a minority, making up between 5 and 15 percent of the world’s population depending on who you talk to. Left handed people are more prone to addictions, especially alcoholism. This is believed to be because the right side of the brain has a lower tolerance to alcohol.  Left handed people predominantly use the right side of their brain which is considered the creative side of the brain. Left handed people tend to be more likely to be on the extreme ends of the intelligence scale (either really really intelligent or really mentally retarded) then right handed people with a majority having high I.Q.s. Left handed people who do have higher I.Q.s tend to have I.Q.s over 140. Many of the geniuses throughout history have been suspected of being left handed. 2500 left handed people a year are killed by using a tool meant for a right handed person. 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed – 250% more than the normal.

Brain of a Left Handed Person
It has been said that left handed people are the only ones in their right mind. If you are left handed your right brain is the side that is most active. Thinking outside the box is easy to do.

Myths About Left-Handed People:

The term ‘sinistrality’ used to refer to left-handed people indicates demonic traits. This is the most ridiculous circulating the planet. In fact, the word ‘sinistrality’ is derived from the Latin word ‘sinestra’ which means ‘left-handedness’. In the ancient Mesopotamian language, the term ‘sinestra’ was used to denote ‘power’.

Use of the left hand for eating is immoral and unholy. This myth was probably first spun by vague fanaticism. It is totally untrue. We make our social norms and abide by them. However, shunning a left-handed person who eats with his or her left hand does not even offer modern education credibility. Left-handed people show a more co-ordinated hand-to-mouth movement and that does not in any way make them, of all things, ‘unholy’!

It is difficult for left-handed children to learn writing of the alphabet, without personal tutoring. Not true at all. Observe the left-handed toddler. Everyone else is more bothered about his left-handedness than he is himself. The left-handed child adapts to writing, drawing and all other activities that require him to hold a writing tool as early as the right-handed. In fact, many left-handed people display a neater handwriting than their right-handed colleagues.

Lefties have a lesser chance of surviving a hand-to-hand combat. This is anything but true. History bears witness to the advantage left-handedness had during hand-to-hand combats and even within the boxing ring. In fact, a common observation is that the left-handed combatant is able to strike a strong surprise attack on the open, unprotected right side.

Facts About Left-Handed People:
Left-handed people are many a times at a disadvantage using tools designed for the right-handed. Well this is true, but today, there is a whole range of tools and equipment being designed for left-handed people. Many right-handed tools too are available, such that they can be molded to suit the needs of the left-handed craftsman. Even the computer mouse has been challenged in use and the touch pad provides the left-handed professional equal opportunity.

Left-handed people are high achievers. Yes. Research reveals that left-handed people are in fact high achievers. This is because their brains are structured to widen their abilities, an attribute that is genetic and on account of the enhanced governing of ‘language centers’ within the brain. A number of mathematical, artistic and sporting geniuses were and are left-handed.

Left-handedness is usually forced to right-handedness due to cultural impact. Sadly, this is the case across the globe. Many children are forced into right-handedness during the formative years. Cultural pressure is fast changing though due the impact of mass literacy on society.

Left-handed people have a shorter lifespan than right-handed counterparts. Statistics reveal that left-handed people are more likely to succumb to accident fatalities and other injuries that arise out of a state of ‘affliction’. This is mainly due to majority people in the world being right-handed and hence the overall design of utilities being designed to accommodate the majority. Left-Hander Syndrome is a condition that is seen in left-handed people who are forced to write with their right hand; thus causing a mental state of confusion.

Research reveals that people who are left-handed do not use the sequential processing style like their right-handed colleagues, to disseminate information. Instead they are good at applying themselves to multiple tasks with the help of the synthesis method of breaking down information and finding a solution.

கனிமொழி கைது காலத்தின் கட்டாயமா?

ன் அரசியல் வாழ்வின் மிகக் கடினமான காலகட்டத்தை தி.மு.க., கடந்துகொண்டிருக்கிறது. தி.மு.க., என்றால், கருணாநிதி. கருணாநிதி என்றால் கனிமொழி. அந்த வகையில், கனிமொழி என்றாலே கழகம் தான். கட்சிக்கு வந்த களங்கம் என்று மட்டுமில்லாமல், தன் அருமை மகள் கனிமொழி என்பதால், தனிப்பட்ட முறையில் முதல்வருக்கும் இது நெருக்கடி தான். 
கருணாநிதி. “சில நாட்களாகவே சி.ஐ.டி., காலனி இல்லத்துக்குப்போகவில்லை. தாயும், மகளும், மற்றுமுள்ளவர்களும் படும் வேதனையைக் காணச்சகிக்கவில்லை’ என்பதாக அவர் கவலைப்பட்டிருந்தார். கனிமொழி கைதாவாரா? கருணை காட்டப்படுமா? சட்டம் கைகொடுக்குமா? மத்திய அரசு கைவிடுமா?  “குற்றப்பத்திரிகை தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட்டாலே, விசாரணை அதிகாரியின் வேலையில் பாதி முடிந்துவிடுகிறது. அதன் பிறகும் கைதின் அவசியம் என்ன?’ என்ற வினா எழுப்பப்படுகிறது. குற்றம் நிரூபிக்கப்படுவதற்கு, இரண்டு அம்சங்கள் முக்கியமானவை. ஒன்று, விசாரணை. இன்னொன்று சாட்சிகள். குற்றப்பத்திரிகை தாக்கல் செய்யப்படுவதன் மூலம், விசாரணை வேண்டுமானால் பெருமளவு முடிந்திருக்கலாமே தவிர, சாட்சிகள் கலைக்கப்படும் அபாயம் தொடரவே செய்யும். 
கண்டிப்பா சட்டம் தன கடமையை செய்யும், தர்மத்தின் வாழ்வுதனை சூது கவ்வும் மறுபடியும் தர்மம் வெல்லும்.
