Some facts about Sanjaya Baru

Who is Sanjaya Baru ? This question has raised among Telangana people when he made a statement against the cause of Telangana at  Vishalandhra Mahasabha workshop at New Delhi organised by so called intellectual Parakala  Prabhakar.

Sanjaya Baru,  native of Hyderabad  , is an eminent economist who has done his post graduation and PHD  from the prestigious JNU. His Father B P R Vithal was finance secretary of Andhra Pradesh. Vithal is a renowned expert on Centre-state relations, and worked for some time as an IMF fiscal expert and a member of the Tenth Finance Commission (1992-94).

Baru is the present Chief Editor of the famous financial daily Business Standard. He has a served as chief media adviser for the former Prime minister P.V Narasimha Rao and present prime minister Manmohan Singh.  He has tried at best to project Manmohan Singh as Mr. Clean and the most intellectual genius in media by his special methods of media management. Chief  opposition NDA made numerous criticisms and allegations on baru for his deliberate attempts to focus singh.

In an article (Telugu or Telangana, March 29,2004,Indian Express), Baru claimed that he  has participated in the Seperate Telangana agitation during 1970 at the streets of Narayana Guda and Himayath Nagar. Interestingly, Baru father and grand father hailed from Maharashtra and settled in Hyderabad.  But, Baru could not clearly explain why he has shifted his voice.

Sanjaya Bharu is said to be against Telangana state due to his exclusive concern on economic progress and growth of Hyderabad. He says,  some areas in Telangana witnessed massive development on par with top metro cities in India despite  few areas are under developed. According to Baru, proper solution on Telangana could affect the growth, investments in Hyderabad, according to Bharu. He wrote an article titled  ‘Hyderabad needs a united Andhra Pradesh’  in Financial Express (April 23, 2004) which drew flak from Telangana economists and sociologists.

Baru must not have followed his father Vithal articles and works. In various ocassions, Vithal admonished state government for not seeking revival of the Telangana Regional Committee that envisaged a separate budget for the region. Vithal says in his  working Paper on Telangana Surpluses, the budget representing Telangana was surplus comparing to seemandhra region. He also advocated that, during the tenure of 1970-1973, Telangana regional council planning and activities fetched positive economic results.

We can estimate, how Baru has managed, manipulated and influenced  Manmohan Singh as a  Chief Media Adviser regarding Telangana. Bharu incident highlighted how some top bureaucrats have been influencing Prime Minister Office regarding the decision making of  Telangana.


Azad statement irks homo sexuals.


Today, Union health minister Azad ridiculed Homosex as unnatural disease and said that culture spreaded to India from western culture in a seminar at New Delhi.  Statement triggered a wide flak from the human rights organisations and various  NGO’s of  LGBT.

This statement diverted the attention of not only national media but also international media. Media broadcasted debates and  tried to collect the feedback from various sections. Why media has developed such anxiety towards the topic of LGBT. National media has developed interest in sensationalizing such masala and entertainment issues by keeping away most of the crucial issues of southern India. That is the different topic and would write exclusively on the relavant matter in future updates.

LGBT (or GLBT) is an initialism used since the 1990s as a self-designation by what was formerly known as the “gay community”. It refers collectively to “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender” people.

Issues and views posed by LGBT organisations regarding their argument for legalizing Gay/Homo/lesbian/transgender sex.

1) Sex is one’s option and it is very natural right.

2) People should have enough freedom in selection of partner irrespective of gender in enjoying sex.

3) Govt and society has no right to command individual’s sex preferences.

Most of the western countries is thinking about the possibility in legalizing gay marriages and gay relationships due to the support and popularity backing them.

Arguments against LGBT

1) Unhealthy like Aids and STD ( Sexually transmitted diseases).

2) Failure of marriage system and human relationships.

3) Fate of the children may be questioned.

4) Population may be in check if this LGBT tendency grows. LGBT relations are not population productive.

5) All the existing religions and social norms condemned unnatural sex.

Why this unnatural culture is growing ?

1) Due to the obscenity in popular media.

2) Hostels and jails are emerging platforms for such unnatural sexual desires.

3) In the name of human rights, people lost interest in morals, ethics and cultural values.

4) Lack of sex education. Conservative and developing countries have been hesitating to impose sex education at school level. Govt should impose sex education to give a better idea about sex in upper primary schools.

We are not supposed to say such practice is wrong without elaborate explanation on its ill  health and psychic effects.

5) Westernization and free access to porn through media, mms and gadgets.

American Academy of Pediatrics stated in Pediatrics in 2004:

Sexual orientation probably is not determined by any one factor but by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences. In recent decades, biologically based theories have been favored by experts. Although there continues to be controversy and uncertainty as to the genesis of the variety of human sexual orientations, there is no scientific evidence that abnormal parenting, sexual abuse, or other adverse life events influence sexual orientation. Current knowledge suggests that sexual orientation is usually established during early childhood.

My views

Whatever the concerns of human rights and views, LGBT relationships are unnatural and will have bad implications on society from all the dimensions in the long term. Why govt is imposed ban on drugs by not claiming it is individual right or preference ?.  Because, we know it will have bad impact on the health of the people. Human rights may be violated by restricting LGBT, but it is inevitable from the health and socio cultural perspectives. But, we must explain clearly about the effects of such unnatural practices instead of denying them as wrong in single statement. But, the problem is, Indians are not ready to discuss this controversial issue in front of adolescents. Its time for Indians to break up their  silence.
