Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY) pension scheme

Just came across this article in Economic times

A simple google search, I found out these facts about Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana.
Turns out this scheme is a wonderful pension plan for people above 60+ age

Minimum investment = 1.5 lakh. monthly pension = Rs. 1,000 **
Maximum investment = 15 lakh  monthly pension = Rs15,000 **
Mimimum age of applicant = 60 years
Maximum age of applicant = Nil

The investment amount will be returned after 10 years to the investor or Nominee.

Bad news: As per the above economic times article, this scheme is not getting extended after 31st March 2020. So hurry up and inform all retired people you know to invest in this plan.

BTW. it yields 8% per year. Which I think is the highest in current scenario.

This scheme can be bought either online or offline.

Will Gandhigiri work with Bullies?

I was shocked to hear in the documentary “Partition: The Day India Burned” that British left India because it was economically in a very bad condition after the World War II. But as Kids we were taught in school that India got independence because of Gandhi’s Nonviolence movement or Quit India movement. But 99.99% of the Indians today do not know the truth. 
Why did British really leave India?  The answer is, it is because of several other reasons other than the Nonviolence or Quit India or Satyagraha.  If you search around the net for the reason why India got it independence, you will get the actual factors. 
These thoughts came to me after I read latest post in Francois Gautier’s blog article “HINDI-CHINI BYE-BYE” which has the following Lines
One should be realistic and learn from Swami Rama Thirtha, a great sage of the beginning of the century :”The policy of appeasement is never successful. It increases the demands of the bully and encourages his unreasonableness. He will never list…

Clear message?

Kasab verdict a clear message to Pak-based terror outfits: Antony

Soon after the death sentence of Kasab our defence minister AK Antony said, "It has been proved by this judgment that under the present law itself, if there is a will, we can take stern action...We can send a proper message to all those criminals and terrorists,''

Its really surprising to see such a message from the Defense Minister,... I don't understand What is the message going out to the people who are mentally prepared and have decided to die for their so called cause. Dying by gunshot or getting hanged after months of court trail and days in Jail makes no difference to them.

The minister says we can take stern action? what is the stern action sir?? he is stating that "We can take stern action...." I don't get what is that stern action? Do you think getting a death sentence from court after 17 months is a stern action?

On the other side Home minister Chidambaram is proud of the system sin…
