Book review: Of Aakash and Aarti by Dr Govind Sharma

Many people lead a very sheltered life , where they only read about drug addicts in newspapers and magazines, they have no interaction with them at all. However in places like goa, tourists from all over india are flocking to the state to experiment with different drugs, and the media reports the death of tourists due to drug overdose periodically. These drug addicts and their associates are responsible for a lot of crime in goa, and are allegedly involved in the repeated robberies and burglaries of many homes, including that of the domain investor in panaji, goa.

In their desperation for money, the drug addicts of panaji, are stealing everything including low value items costing Rs 300 or less from homes in panaji, goa and the police in goa refuse to take any action against them. So the book “Of Aakash and Aarti” is a rather unusual story , since the narrator of the story Aakash is a drug addict who is hopelessly addicted to different kinds of drugs. The author has provided a very comprehensive insight into the life of drug addicts, who do anything to get money to pay for the drugs which they consume, and are often deeply in debt. The book provides a glimpse of the life of the addict, how they get addicted and lack the willpower to kick their habit.

The drug addicts are involved in robbery to get money, and it is relevant in places where drug use levels are high, because of these addicts increase in crime rates stealing whatever they can, and people feel very unsafe. For example in panaji in 2018, it is difficult to keep anything valuable. in panaji areas/homes where cctv cameras are not installed , because the addicts are using masterkeys to steal everything. In a similar manner, Aakash in a desperate bid to pay his drug supplier, steals money which is offered in the temple by devotees since he is the grandson of the temple priest, who is highly respected in the area.

The book has described the network of the drug peddlers very well, how they use drug addicts to increase the number of drug users, using them to introduce their classmates to the drug peddler. The drug peddlers are experts in human psychology, they know how to manipulate young people and make them addicted to drugs. The linkage of the drug peddlers and the cricket betting mafia is also exposed. To repay his debt, Aakash is persuaded by his drug peddler to place bets on cricket matches. However he loses the bet, doubling his debt to the peddler, who then torture him, to repay the amount.

The book also provides insight into the life of rich men, how beautiful young women like Aarti can seduce them and make them do whatever they wish. Basant Somani is the richest industrialist in Rajapur, where most of this novel is set, and though he is married to the very good looking Rajeshwari Devi, a Miss Kolkatta, he is always enjoying himself with beautiful women who know how to seduce him.Taking advantage of his weakness for women who seduce him, the young Aarti who comes from a poor family, seduces him and becomes very wealthy in a short period of time. This is particular relevant in the indian internet sector, where top ntro, raw, cbi employees are seduced by call girls and good looking women like school dropout gujju housewife naina,sunaina, siddhi, riddhi, veena get them raw/cbi jobs falsely claiming that these women who do not spend any money online, own domain names, including this one.

It is one of the first books on notebandi or demonetization, describes how rich people converted their black money into white. It appears that jewellers were the preferred option for converting black money into white. Also a large number of unemployed youth were used by drug peddlers to convert their money. Out of jealousy, Rajeshwari Devi, gets Aarti arrested after her expensive ring is stolen, yet Basant Somani gets her freed indicating that powerful and wealthy men are willing to do anything for the young women who seduce them. The book has a rather unexpected ending.

Like all the earlier books of Dr Govind Sharma, this well written book is very readable and realistic, so it is highly recommended for those who have not interacted with addicts anytime in their life, yet live in areas like panaji, goa where the crime rate is high due to drug use.

Review: The Dev Anand story by Dr Govind Sharma

The Dev Anand story by Dr Govind Sharma IAS retired is the story of the life and career of one of the most popular Hindi film heroes of post independence India, Dev Anand, real name Dharam Dev Anand. The son of successful lawyer, Dev Anand moved to Mumbai to try his luck in the film industry. There has been a lot of controversy over nepotism in Bollywood recently, so this book on Dev Anand, is interesting as it tells the story of how a migrant from Lahore (now in Pakistan) became one of the most popular and successful actors of his era. Unlike most of the current lot of Bollywood heroes who have almost no experience elsewhere he worked in the military censors office to cover his expenses, while trying to get a break in the film industry.

His first break came when Prabhat Studio hired him for the movie Hum Ek Hain. His first major hit was the bombay talkies movie Ziddhi offered by popular actor Ashok Kumar After having a few hit films, he founded his own production company Navketan films with his brothers Vijay Anand and chetan anand which allowed him to control his image in films to a very great extent, as he acted in most of his films.He was good friends with the legendary director Guru Dutt, who directed his hit film Baazi for him, where Dev Anand played the role of a small time gambler.

The book describes the hit movies of Dev Anand and the songs in the movies which were popular. The making of one of his most popular movies Guide based on a story by R K Narayan is described in great detail. Though the english version of the movie was also produced, it was not successful, while the hindi version of the movie, which was directed by Dev Anands brother Vijay anand was a major hit as the story was modified to take into account Indian values . The role of his brother Vijay or Goldie Anand who directed some of his most popular movies is also described in great detail.

Like most film producers, when a film like Ishq Ishq Ishq flopped, it adversely affected Dev Anands finances, However Dev Anand did not let it affect him, and made another film, which was usually a hit to recover his money which he lost. He preferred to produce movies on different topics like drugs, cricket with Hare Krishna Hare Rama one of his most popular movies. Till his death on December 4, 2011, Dev Anand remained active, planning, producing and directing movies on different topics. An interesting book for Dev Anand fans, providing detailed information on the evergreen hero of Hindi cinema.

The book also tells how a large number of young men were inspired by Dev Anand, his mannerism and way of speaking, imitating him. One of the most notorious frauds in India who became very popular for his imitation of Dev Anand is the light eyed brahmin fraud NTRO employee puneet, the director of domlur, bengaluru company. Like Dev Anand, the fraud puneet was also an excellent actor , and was involved in a major identity, resume theft fraud on a harmless google competitor, his btech 1993 ee classmate,and india’s largest female domain investor,

Though he actually hated his btech 1993 ee classmate, the fraud puneet did some great acting (far better than dev anand) and falsely claimed that he knew the domain investor very well, was helping her, to steal her resume, correspondence, savings, memory without her permission, legally valid reason , or offering any kind of compensation for frauds like the indian document robber R&AW employee housewife veena. If the cheater puneet had been honest about his hatred, he would not be able to cause much damage to the google competitor. So it appears that a large number of men, like the ntro fraud puneet are inspired by the negative roles of dev anand, cheating and exploiting vulnerable indian citizens.

Review : The Break Up Clinic by Dr Govind Sharma , IAS (Retd)

Regularly most newspapers are publishing the story of people committed suicide or other crimes, allegedly because of a love affair which did not have a happy ending. The novel”The Break Up Clinic” by Dr Govind Sharma, a retired IAS officer is an excellent book on how those who are unhappy after their love affair ends can deal with it, getting out of the depression and mental trauma they experience.

The main protagonist of the story is Ajay Raghuvanshi,the only son of a railway employee, who has tried to commit suicide three times, after his long time girlfriend Himanshi ditches him to marry a wealthier NRI. He is so upset that his girlfriend has left him, that he stops going to college, Tata Institute of Social sciences and feels that life is not worth living. however when he is trying to commit suicide for the third time at Mumbai Central station, a coolie Babu, who his father had helped, catches him and gets him admitted to the Break Up Clinic , which specializes in helping those who have had a failed love affair recover. Those who have tried to committ suicide are given special priority in the clinic.

Since the coolie Babu knows a doctor Dev working in the Break up clinic, Ajay is admitted free of cost, otherwise it is a very expensive clinic as the latest methods are used to help people recover. They do not use medication, instead relying on psycho analysis to help the patient understand the problem and gradually recover from the love affair, devoting his or her time to other activities and goals for life. At the initial introduction, he meets others who have also tried to commit suicide who also recount their story. It is observed that love affairs end when one of those involved in the affair is not serious, or has found better opportunities hurting the other person in the process

In particular he becomes close to Karan who was working in Tata Administrative Services and met a very beautiful married woman Anubha while working there. Anubha who was from a rich family said that she was forced into the marriage for business purposes, was unhappy in the marriage, and had an affair with Karan, She claimed that her husband had an affair with another woman. She then returned to Mumbai. For a few months when Karan was posted in Assam, she returned to continue the affair, however she again returned to Mumbai. When Karan tried to meet her in office, she had him physically removed and a restraining order was sent to him. This made him very upset and he tried to commit suicide, however his domestic help saved him.Another person at the clinic is Nisha, who came from a rich family, was working for a film maker Gautam Nath and allegedly tried to commit suicide after being humiliated.

Each case history is analyzed in very great detail. There is some very good advice which is true for any kind of broken relationship, not necessarily a love affair, Any person who has cheated, betrayed or treated you badly is not worth keeping relationships with, try to avoid them to the extent possible. In future also they will not think twice about treating you badly. The ex lover or other person, who may be a friend or business associate who has cheated, or betrayed, has already moved on, and they have treated you badly because they do not think that you will be of any use to them in future. It is not worth committing suicide or harming yourself in any way, because someone has treated you badly.

Though Ajay tries to contact his girlfriend Himanshi, she refuses to meet him and send her fiancee Utkarsh who warns Ajay to stay away. However with the help of Doctor Dev, along with Karan, Nisha , Ajay learns to cope with life again. This is a situation of betrayal, broken relationships many can identify with.
For example as part of google’s strategy to destroy competition in India, as many 10 lazy greedy mediocre fraud women who cheated, defamed, betrayed and exploited the domain investor owning this website, including a relative, were rewarded with a R&AW/CBI/indian intelligence job falsely claiming that the fraud women owned this website, though the fraud indian intelligence employee was not spending any money or doing any work.  This identity theft fraud started in 2010, and the google, tata officials who allegedly masterminded it, still expect the domain investor to trust all those who cheated, betrayed her, teach them everything for free, like goan gsb fraud housewife riddhi nayak, diploma holder siddhi mandrekar, shivalli Brahmin housewife nayanshree hathwar, goan obc bhandari slut sunaina chodan, indore housewife veena, gujju housewife naina, mba hr ruchika, asmita patel , deepika though it is not recommended by psychologists as the victim will get hurt and cheated again. Like a broken relationship , this identity theft fraud, betrayal, exploitation, allegedly masterminded by google, tata can be very frustrating and stressful for the victim.

While there are a large number of largely similar romance books published by indian and other authors, there are relatively few books available on dealing with relationships which have gone wrong, especially love affairs. As betrayal, exploitation and lack of humanity becomes increasingly commonplace in Indian society, it is very necessary to deal with these broken relationships , without letting it affect the life of a victim.
Though The Break Up Clinic does not claim to be a self help book, this book helps readers look at any broken or hostile relationship in a new way which why this book is very readable and has mostly got 5* ratings on Amazon. Highly recommended for those who are upset that any close or important relationship did not work out the way they expected, especially young people who are more likely to be depressed when their girlfriend or boyfriend ditches them.

Review : State vs Amrit Kumar by Dr Govind Sharma, IAS, retired

One of the reasons for brain drain from and poverty in India, is the high level of corruption and nepotism in India, which the mainstream media refuses to discuss and many young people are not aware of. The book ” State vs Amrit Kumar” exposes the high levels of corruption, nepotism, lack of morals,crime, betrayal which few indian authors are honest to write about . The book is written in flashback mode with Madhu, the mother of police officer Amrit Kumar, approaching a very successful lawyer Sukumar to get her son released from jail. Amrit Kumar has been imprisoned for incorrectly ordering the killing of a business owner Aman. The novel is set in the fictional town of Rajapur.

To fight the case well, the lawyer tries to get more information of the background of Amrit Kumar. He finds out that his mother Madhu was the daughter of a trade union leader, who won the college elections , yet married the loser of the college elections, Upendra, who came from a priestly family which managed the Thakurjee temple. The temple had a lot of land attached to it. A rich local businessman Chadha wanted the temple land along with his business associate Aman from Dubai. So using the college classmates of Upendra, Ketan and Sohan, they manipulate the system,using a combination of betrayal and blackmail to grab the land. Sohal is indebted to Chaddha who he has borrowed a large amount from for leading a life of luxury and business.

The Mahant of the Thakurjee temple is Upendra’s uncle Tapendra Nath, a bachelor. Blackmailing a devotee(sevak) of Thakurjee, Sumati, who was a drug addict, Ketan manages to poisoning the Mahant of the temple, making Sumati add arsenic to the food she gives the Mahant, killing him slowly and making him sign papers. He also manages to steal the jewelry of the temple by exploiting Sumati, who Tapendra Nath (Kakosa) blindly trusted. In an indication of the high level of manipulation and treachery which has become a feature of life in India today, Ketan manages to frame the honest Upendra for the crime, saying that he was responsible for the death of his uncle and also the theft of jewelry.

Amrit Kumar the son of Upendra and Madhu is born the day after the death of Tapendra Nath, the mahant of the Thakurjee. To make Upendra look guilty, Chaddha and Ketan manipulated the local media, having defamatory stories published about him. When Madhu visited Upendra who was lodged in Central Jail, after being framed for a crime he did not commit with her son, he said that he would like to attend the Bhandara ( religious ceremony) of his uncle, so that he could clarify what happened. However the next day, he was found dead in an apparent “suicide” . After the death of her husband, Madhu was in a state of shock, however her brother a police inspector Jayant offers shelter

Like his sister Madhu, the Jayant who becomes an ACP is also idealistic and honest, so his actions are causing losses to Chaddha and Sohan. So they get the staff of the police inspector Jayant to betray him, provide confidential information which allows Chaddha’s men to shoot him dead. The 6 year old Amrit Kumar is the sole witness to the brutal murder, which leaves him traumatized for the rest of his childhood and he wishes to become a police inspector like his uncle though he could select any profession with his good grades. Though his mother objects , she eventually agrees. However those opposing the idealistic Amrit Kumar, manage to get him framed, using a combination of treachery and bribery, leading to the case State vs Amrit Kumar. How Sukumar defends his client is the crux of the story

Though the domain investor who actually owns this website does not have a government job, allegedly 10 lazy greedy mediocre inexperienced google, tata sponsored goan sex workers, cheater housewives, blackmailers and other fraud women who never answered JEE, invested money online, or did any work online, are falsely claiming to have the resume, including btech 1993 ee degree, investment of the domain investor to get R&AW/CBI/indian intelligence jobs with monthly government salary, in a story of identity theft similar to the 2009 Aamir Khan starrer “3 Idiots” where the servant has to give up his engineering degree to the rich rancho. Since Indian intelligence agencies are involved, the domain investor cannot even file a case against the indian state as it is very difficult to get any kind of information about the designation of these 10 fraud indian government employees.

The book correctly focusses on betrayal that has become rampant in Indian society and is the reason, why so many foreigners were able to conquer India. For example the domain investor paid more than Rs 1.1 lakh to google, tata sponsored bengaluru shivalli brahmin cheater housewife bbm nayanshree hathwar, who then cheated her, and instead of being punished, was rewarded with a R&AW job falsely claiming that she had the resume including btech 1993 ee degree, investment of the domain investor. The police refused to file a case against nayanshree despite providing evidence. Similarly goan gsb fraud diploma holder siddhi mandrekar committed corporate espionage on the domain investor, and was rewarded with a R&AW job falsely claiming that she has the resume, investment of the domain investor, including this domain/website. Another fraud R&AW employee rewarded for betrayal is the indore housewife bespectacled veena and her associates deepika, mahesh

In a clear indication that harassment of the indian state is not limited to fiction novels, there are others like goan gsb fraud housewife riddhi nayak who looks like actress kangana ranaut, slim goan obc bhandari sex queen sunaina chodnekar, 2013 bsc eighth standard pass gujju housewife naina, mother of two sons, who have got lucrative R&AW/CBI jobs with fake resumes, fake investment falsely claiming to own this website and other domains to get a monthly indian government salary, though they do not spend any money online, do not do any work online, and do not control this website. The powerful corrupt CBI, NTRO employees who are involved in the identity theft fraud, which started in 2010, are not even willing to acknowledge the time and large amount of money spent by the domain investor for this and other websites, and are shameless in falsely claiming credit for work they do not do.

The book also indicates the complete lack of ethics of rich business owners, who will stoop to any level to become richer, committing crimes. For example the domain investor would not be subjected to identity theft, if large internet and tech sector companies allegedly google, tata were not extremely unscrupulous in destroying competition, acquiring talent and technology cheaply. However harmless single woman experienced engineers, domain investors subjected to identity theft by CBI, NTRO, indian intelligence agencies cannot file a case against the indian state because of lack of evidence, as these agencies are not covered under RTI. This is a honest review of the book, unlike most of the online reviews which are copy paste jobs. It would be interesting to know how this review will rank in search engines.

The book ” State vs Amrit Kumar” has been written by Dr. Govind Sharma , a retired IAS officer, who was the chief electoral officer of Rajasthan and held other important positions. Unlike the popular best sellers, which are extremely forgettable romances which are mainly for time pass, this is a very well written and relevant book for all those who are connected to India. The mainstream media in India rarely highlights the dark side of business and life in India, and the author has used his extensive experience to rightly indicate the complete lack of ethics in business in India, how betrayal, lies , bribery and manipulation are widespread. Most young indians are leading a fairly sheltered life, and are not aware of the complete lack of ethics till it is too late.

Summarizing the book ” State vs Amrit Kumar” by Dr Govind Sharma is highly recommended, it will be far more useful for college students and idealistic young people, compared to the books of Chetan Bhagat, which have been incorporated in the Delhi University syllabus.
