Delhi: Sheila Dikshit shown black flags at rally
Hindustan Times ^ | 3/3/2013

Posted on 03/03/2013 7:18:01 PM PST by llevrok

Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit was on Sunday shown black flags by a group of protesters allegedly belonging to BJP at a rally in west Delhi this afternoon. 12-15 persons, whom Delhi MLA Mukesh Sharma described as BJP workers, were removed from the rally site at Uttam Nagar by police.

Today's rally in Sharma's Uttam Nagar constituency was the first in a series of rallies ahead of Assembly elections in November this year.

Addressing the function, Dikshit said even her political opponents agree that there has been a positive change during last 14 years in the capital.

"They oppose us on political front but they have no courage to oppose us on our developmental programme," she said.

With an eye on the Delhi Assembly elections due later this year, Dikhsit promised power and water availability in every household in the next two years.

"Today water is not reaching the people the way it should reach but we are finding a solution to it and the government promises to provide access to power meter and water in every home in a year or two", the chief minister said.

Raising the issue of unauthorised colonies, she said her government has taken up the task of legalising all such colonies and that no single house will be demolished from now.

"We promise to legalise all the unauthorised colonies and give legal ownership to the people of the houses which they have constructed with their hard earned money. We will not allow demolition of any unauthorised house," Dikshit said.

Unauthorised colonies are said to be the traditional vote bank of Congress and the crushing defeat of the party in municipal polls in April last year was attributed to these voters moving away from the party.

In September last year, the Delhi Government gave provisional regularisation certificates to 895 colonies out of the total 1639.

Dikshit also mentioned that apart from the subsidised cylinders even the non subsidised ones will be available to people at a reduced price.

"I say this to all my sisters that as decided by the central government you all will get even the non subsidised cylinders at a reduced price," she said.

Listing the acheivements of the state government from Delhi Metro to the number of flyovers in the city during its 14-year rule, Dikhsit also announced a slew of measures such as Monorail and giving access of stadiums to the citizens that were built during the Commonwealth Games.

Announcing the construction of internal sewer lines in Uttam Nagar Assembly Segment, the chief minister promised construction of a hospital consisting 200-215 beds in the area, a demand raised by area MLA Mukesh Sharma.

My daughter once had a girl from Indonesia in her class at school whose last name as given on the class list was Shithead.

When she read out the names to check attendance on the first day, she paused before pronouncing it, then asked the girl how it was pronounced.

It turns out that it is a common name, pronounced Shi-theed. An awkward moment was avoided.

In the fifth paragraph it is “Dikhsit” but reverts back to
“Dikshit” later. In college I recall a Dr Richard Head in
the Phys Ed dept, I believe.

“Dikshit”

The Dikshit family is considered rather nerdy and non intelligent in their native country.

When the family immigrated to the US; the immigration officer accidentally changed the the “k” to a “p”.

FYI - Dikshit or Dikshitar (Hindi: दीक्षित) is a Hindu family name. The word is an adjective form of the Sanskrit word diksha, meaning religious initiations. Dikshit in Sanskrit derives itself as a person or priest involved in such initiations or a scholar in religious scriptures, and literally translates as "one who has received initiation or one who is initiated". The surname is usually associated with people from the Brahmin community among Hindus in India. People with this surname have their roots in the Indian states of Kashmir, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and some parts of Orissa and South India.

Australians use “Sheila” as a common generic name for a girl, like “bloke” for a guy.

The surname is, however uniquely Indian and not uncommon I am told.

If she is seriously challenged in any election, would the Indian newspaper headlines run like this?

“Dikshit in Deepshit”

Now, about that guy “Deepgrease Porkchop” who used to be on MSNBC or CNN. Shouldn’t he change his name to “Sam”?

The entire article appears to document a campaign in Delhi, India, where utilities are being promised to those who have built shack homes.

While it sounds good, it isn’t always best policy to run water, sewer, NatGas, and Elec Power to shacks built out of refrigerator boxes and plywood.

This is probably why they were working to have stadiums opened and made available to the homeless. At least they have utilities installed.

Reminds me of a joke...

Guy walks into the courthouse and tells the clerk, “I want to change my name.”

The clerk asks why.

“Because it is embarrassing,” the guy replies.

The clerk says, “OK, what is your name?”

“Barack Hussein Dikshit,” the man replies.

“Wow. That is embarrassing,” the clerk replies. “What would you like your new name to be?”

“George Dikshit”, the man says.
