“Power will go to the hands of rascals, , rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for
power and will be lost in political squabbles .

Sadly , the forewarning of Late Winston Churchill has been proved right by some of our criminal , corrupt public servants.

EDITORIAL :  WAKE UP  Corrupt  Judges & Police of India – Bapuji’s dandi march- the origin of civil dis-obedience  movement

Greetings  on the birthday of  our bapuji , Mahatma Gandhi on 02nd October.   Just hanging  photograph of Gandhi  in  office room  , court  hall or  police station  won’t serve any purpose.  Before gandhi’s  photo only many corrupt practices , injustices are enacted by public servants.  Many  of  our public servants , Judges  &  Police   are  even unfit  to sit before  Mahatma Gandhi’s photograph , let   alone  invoke  mahatma’s name during  speech or court ruling.  Let  those very  Judges & Police   first  learn to  follow ideals  of Mahatma Gandhi  in their  official  capacity  as  well as personal capacity. The public servants  enjoy luxuries ,  5 star non veg meals ,  alcoholic drinks   all at tax payers expense. These judges give judgements  running into  hundreds of pages with moral guidance , great quotes  to commoners , police  use filthy language , 3rd degree torture methods against  innocents , commoners  , when there are rich crooks , criminals  justice kowtows before  their feet.  No brilliance  , quotes of judges , no bravery , valour of police , why ?

We  respect the honest  few in judiciary , police & public service , who  inspite  of repeated   transfers , withholding of promotions , threats  to their own lives are doing their duties & upholding constitution of india. WE SALUTE THOSE HONEST FEW  IN JUDICIARY , POLICE & PUBLIC SERVICE. Here the  term  JUDGE  includes all public servants  doing quasi judicial functions  upto chief justice of india.



Why  no  suo motto action taken by  police  or  judges when  injustices are happening  before public eyes before their very own  eyes ?  why  no action taken by judges & police  even when injustices are reported to them ?  Some  of the public servants  mention  agricultural income as their source of wealth.  Year after year   original farmers are dying  , committing  suicide  all over  india  due to  crop  failure  , fall in prices of agricultural products , etc.  How come these public servants are making money by agriculture , with what crops & selling in which markets ? the government must not send  progressive farmers , legislators   abroad   for study tour , to learn farm techniques instead they can  send them to the farms of corrupt judges  , police & public servants.

Inspite of our repeated appeals  for justice ,  judges  are mum.

1.       Are judges not interested in   apprehending  criminals & recovering  crores of public money ?

2.       Are   judges not interested in apprehending  master minds behind  Late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination ?

3.       Are judges not  interested  in   prosecuting  greedy , corrupt industrialists ?

4.       Are  judges not interested in  apprehending  greedy  , corrupt  industrialist  of RPG  enterprises ?

5.       Are  judges  not  interested  to  apprehend  criminals  within  RBI & BRBNMPL ?

6.       Are judges not interested to do their duties to protect fundamental , human rights of commoners ?

7.       Are judges not interested to do their duties , to legally prosecute their corrupt colleagues ?

8.       If  not , why those  judges & police are not quitting their jobs  , pave the way for a honest person ? 

It is on this day in 12/03/1930, mahatma gandhi led people to dandi in gujarath state,india , to peacefully protest against the atrocious, illegal tax levied by the occupiers-britishers on natural salt. This non-violent, civil dis-obedience movement soon became a mass movement throught india & shook the very foundations of the colonial british government . it is an important milestone in our freedom struggle.

Today, in india even after 1947’s  independence  commoner’s are yet to relish the fruits of independance. Criminals have occupied the seats of power , in their greed for power & money are violating the fundamental/human rights of commoners. The saving  grace is that still a few honest people are here & there in seats of power. We the commoners must come together & support those honest people in their endeavours. towards , this objective on this holy day   SOS e Voice for Justice   on web  was  born.

Let us build ram rajya of mahatma’s dream through non violent means within the existing democratic framework .that ram rajya is aptly described by poet shri. Ravindranath tagore as,

Where the mind is without fear & the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches it’s arms towards
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it’s way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom , my father
Let my country awake.

Jai hind. Vande mataram.


Your’s sincerely,



Crusaders against Corruption: List of Whistleblowers in India

India is the largest democracy in the world and some of the biggest organizations in the world are managed by the Indian government. After independence, India inherited a lot of functionality and laws from British. Over a period of time these laws and procedures seemed to be ineffective in handling big public departments. From time to time people have raised their voice against the corrupt activities in governmental offices and contracts. In India, laws are often misused to provide advantage to a group of people. “Whistle Blower” is a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, dishonest, or not correct within an organization. Here we are presenting some whistle blowers who fought against illegal and corrupt system and suffered heavily.

Satyendra Dubey1: Satyendra Dubey (1973–2003):- He was an Indian Engineering Service (IES) officer posted as Project Director in the National Highways Authority of India (N.H.A.I) at Koderma. Indian Government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee had started ambitious Golden Quadrilateral project to connect all major cities of India via four and six lane highways. At this time he was responsible for the expansion of Aurangabad-Barachatti section of National Highway 2. He discovered that Larsen and Toubro had taken contract from Indian government and passed it to smaller contract mafias who were incapable of handling such a large scale project. Apart from this, he noticed that proper procedure and quality was not maintained while constructing the roads. He wrote to his senior officials in N.H.A.I and when he didn’t get proper response he wrote directly to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He requested that his identity to be kept secret but the letter along with his bio-data was forwarded to Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. While returning from a wedding in Varanasi he was murdered in Gaya, Bihar on 27 November 2003.

Shanmugam Manjunath2: Shanmugam Manjunath (1978 – 2005):- He was a manager at Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) posted Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. Manjunath was murdered for sealing a corrupt petrol station which was selling adulterated fuel. He had sealed two petrol pumps in Lakhimpur Kheri for three months and when they started operating again he took a surprise raid to check the quality of fuel. He was shot six times and his dead body was found in the back seat of his car. This news created huge outcry in nation and media. Sessions court found all accused guilty and sentenced them to death. Allahabad high court changed the verdict to life imprisonment of 5 while acquitting the other two. Indian Oil Corporation paid a compensation of 2.6 million INR to Manjunath’s Family.

Narendra Kumar3: Narendra Kumar (1979–2012): Narendra Kumar was an Indian Police Service (I.P.S) officer from 2009 batch and he was posted in Morena district of Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Morena district is famous for fine quality of sand found in Chambal River bed which is used in construction of buildings, and in past years illegal mining is rampant in not only Morena District but in many parts of Madhya Pradesh. Narendra Kumar was posted as sub-divisional police officer in Morena district and he had been trying to stop illegal quarrying in the area. On 8th march he received information about illegally mined stones being carried in a tractor. He went to check if the information was true or not. He reached the spot and asked the driver to stop but the tractor driver ignored his warning and ran vehicle over him.

Lalit Mehta4: Lalit Mehta (1972–2008): Lalit Mehta was a Right to Information (R.T.I) activist who had exposed ongoing scams in National Rural Employment Guarantee Act in Palamau District of Jharkhand. Lalit Mehta was an engineer turned social activist. He was actively involved in activities that sought to advance rural employment, basic health facilities, right to food, and child rights. At the time he was working as full-time activist of the Right to Food Campaign. He was also the secretary of the Vikas Sahyog Kendra (VSK), a non-governmental organization based in Palamau. On the evening of 14th May 2008 he was travelling back to Chatarpur on his motor bike when he was attacked and killed. The Chhatarpur Police found his mutilated body and a belt around his neck Kandaghati in Chhatarpur on May 15. He was strangled and his face was smashed to deformed beyond recognition. It was suspected that he was murdered by “people who siphoned off NREGS funds”. National RTI Forum started Lalit Mehta RTI Gallantry Award, honoring his contribution in exposing scams via R.T.I.

SP Mahantesh5: SP Mahantesh: He was serving as a Deputy Director of Cooperative Audit in Karnataka. Throug his investigation he found that there were several irregularities in land acquisition, layout formation and allotment of sites and it involved many officials and politicians. He had prepared an audit report of the BEML Employees’ Cooperative Society, which was accused of making improper land allotments to several influential persons. He was attacked thrice prior to final assault that claimed his life on 15th may 2012.On the evening of 15th may he was driving home in his Maruti 800 when he was stopped by four assailants. Attackers first dragged him out and beat him with iron rods and punches. When he went unconscious, his body was thrown on sharp stones. This whole accident happened at high security zone where chief justice of Karnataka lives but according to police out of 16 CCTV cameras none was able to record footage as it was raining heavily that day. The 48-year-old died five days later due to a cardiac arrest.

Amit Jethwa6: Amit Jethwa (1975 – 2010): He was an Indian environmentalist and social worker and he worked actively in the Gir Forest area near Junagadh, Gujarat. During his work as a social worker he found that illegal mining was carried out in protected areas and he charged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament, Dinu Solanki as main culprit. He was working as the president of the Gir Nature Youth Club and he was the one who highlighted the use of a Chinkara deer in a scene in the movie Lagaan and opposed a Bhuj court decision which put a stay on inquiry against the actor-director Aamir Khan. Not only this but he was also instrumental in the five-year jail term of Bollywood actor Salman Khan for shooting an endangered Chinkara deer. On 20th July, soon after he filed a case against BJP MP, he had gone to meet his lawyer near the Gujarat High court in Ahmedabad. As he was leaving the complex, two assailants on a motorcycle shot him at close range with a country-made pistol. He fought bravely with the assailants but they were able to escape. In the initial days of enquiry Gujrat police gave clean chit to Dinu Solanki but this was severely criticized. Later the case was transferred to CBI and in November 2013 Dinu Solanki was arrested by CBI.

Satish Shetty7: Satish Shetty (1970 – 2010): Satish was an Indian social activist and he was noted for exposing many land scams in Indian state of Maharashtra. He had used the Right to Information Act to expose irregularities in Government offices and construction work carried out in Maharashtra. Shetty was a systematic whistleblower and he was credited with throwing light on several major land scams in the Talegaon—Lonavala regions a famous region in Maharashtra for Real- Estate developers and retailors. He also exposed the corruption in the construction of country’s first expressway the Mumbai—Pune expressway. In the morning of 13th January he was attacked by three to four masked men with butcher’s knives when he was reading a newspaper at a kiosk at around 7 on his way home from a morning walk. The police investigations proposed a different theory for the murder, and eventually the case was transferred to CBI.

Rinku Singh Rahi8: Rinku Singh Rahi: He was Provincial Civil services (PCS) civil servant and he was fighting against corruption in sponsored welfare schemes in Uttar Pradesh (UP). He was born in Aligarh and completed his B.Tech degree in Metallurgy at NIT, Jamshedpur in 2002. In the same year, he scored All India 17th rank in GATE but he opted for a civil services career instead. Rahi ordered an inquiry into the allocation of funds by social welfare department in Muzaffarnagar over the last five years and he found discrepancies. Out of the allocated funds to be distributed as part of Old-age pension scheme, money was taken for 62,447 people but only 47,707 beneficiaries received it. There were no records for 55 million rupees distributed to 22,000 OBC students and 110 million rupees distributed to all BPL families. He also went on hunger strike to draw attention of Akhilesh Yadav government’s reply on his pending RTI applications. He was shot six times by local gangsters, damaging his jaw and the vision of one eye and he is currently working as a coordinator at Bhimrao Ambedkar coaching center in his hometown.

Yashwant Sonawane9: Yashwant Sonawane: He was posted as Additional District Collector of Malegaon (Maharashtra). He had received information about oil adulteration carried out at large scale in Malegaon. While going to Nandgaon he spotted a few trucks parked in a very suspicious manner near the road side. Trucks of big oil companies like IOC, HPCL and BPCL were parked. When he started investigating about the trucks a man named Popat Shinde, along with his men attacked the officer, beat him up and then set him on fire. He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

D. K Ravi10: D. K Ravi (1979 – 2015): Doddakoppalu Kariyappa Ravi commonly known as D. K. Ravi was an Indian Administrative Service officer of Karnataka cadre from the 2009 batch. He was posted as Deputy Commissioner in Kolar district and was known as pro people administrator and started crackdown of illegal sand mining and encroachment of government lands in Kolar and Gulbarga. Later on he was transferred to Bangalore as Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes and there he prepared a list of many tax defaulters and set a target of 1000 crores to collect from tax evading defaulters. During first two weeks of his working he collected 138 crore INR from tax defaulters and came into lime light of many political goons. He received many threat calls from tax defaulters and sand mafia. On 16th march 2015 he was found dead with his body hanging on celling fan in his residence in Koramangala, Bangalore. The initial police investigation, forensic and medical evidence showed it a case of suicide but then protest erupted in cities where he worked and mass band was organized by opposition parties for handing over the inquiry to Central Bureau of Investigation (C.B.I). On 13 April 2015 the Centre ordered a CBI probe into the mysterious death of IAS officer DK Ravi and the case is still going on.

The list compiled by us is only a fraction of whistle blowers working in India. In recent times Whistle blowers have used Right to Information as their prime tool to gather information about various government schemes, their expenditure and corruption going in them. In the past five years, some 150 whistleblowers have allegedly been harassed or jailed for exposing corruption; while as many as 20 have been killed.
