Dear Dr Manmohan Singh,

1 Though you have been the Prime-Minister of my Country for the last so many years , this is the first time I am writing to you.

2 Sir, no other man could have achieved what you have done for this Nation of one billion people. But it is time now for you to say good bye.As citizens of this Country we recognise and acknowledge this fact, but we have also seen how in the last so many years our Prime-Minister , the man with the enigmatic smile , gentle manners and with a flair for sher'o shairi, has lost that smile ---- that twinkle in his eyes and that calm confidence . Where is that effervescent energy of the man with the brief case in whom the Country had reposed trust , faith and hope for clean governance'!! What happened ?What went wrong??Where is that slip of paper we knew you always carried in your pocket which was to be handed over the minute you were not allowed to take a decision in the interests of this Country and its citizens??

3 We were sure that now we had a statesman and not a politician at the helm of affairs , but now we feel sorry when we see people comparing Nero with Manmohan Singh-- (yes Nero with Manmohan Singh and not the other way round).
 
Mr Prime Minister look around and see , the Country is burning and wants a change--------------. Throw away the fiddle and rein in the ungrateful , the manipulators , the criminals , the tax evaders and all those so called leaders of independent India , the Ministers , the MPs , the MLA's ,the rogues, the under-performers , at least in your own Government . We the citizens know who they are , we see them on the TV every day ,giving interviews and speaking high flown English and talking gibberish. We demand personal integrity , probity and honesty from these self proclaimed leaders and offenders, whether they are in power or without .Tell your so called allies to either play up or get out . Ask these so called leaders to to stand in front of their legitimate progeny , look into their eyes and declare, ---' We are honest men and true patriots' ! Votes ,chairs,official bungalows,cars with red lights and security posses are not important---- India is.
 

4 So what if the Government falls??There will always be another Manmohan Singh . India will still survive but these blackmailers and their duplicity will not.How can you as the leader of this Nation accept nonsense from upstarts--don't you realise that you are being made into a sacrificial lamb!! Were you  really wanting that bill empowering criminals to stand for elections ro be passed?? Do you really think that the Prime Minister of India should not attend the Commonwealth Meet in Srilanka??? Do you really want to remembered as the 'sad and pathetic ' Prime Minister??!!

5 We had seen your finest hour when you took a principled stand on the nuclear deal much to the chagrin of doubters and manipulators.We respect and admire you as the as the architect of the 1991 liberalisation and we remember how you pulled the Country out from chaos and bankruptcy , but then we now see you blinking during the eyeball to eyeball confrontation on the issue of FDI retail . We see you looking the other way with respect to the 2G scam. Ministers suffering from dementia and senility continue to make policies on environment , education , health , economy ,foreign affairs , service sector. The babu's are having a free run with the passive re-introduction of antiquated socialist policies and license raj eddicts.The black clouds of corruption rain every day and tainted ministers continue to hold office under you !!! Communal riots, disturbances,instances of social degradation and partisan state machinery rock the India of 2013 regularly. Once again,''No se culpe a nadie''--No one is to blame !! Adarsh , Bellary, CWG , Sand Mining and a host of scams and criminal activities by your ministers and compatriots , some in power and some not, continue to be blamed on the Prime Minister, for if an Army faces defeat , who else but the Chief would be the first to be held accountable , though he himself may be a brave man.

6 Remember Mark Anthony's eulogy for Caesar -------------

''I thrice presented him a kingly crown, 

Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition? 

Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; 

And, sure, he is an honourable man. 

I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke, 

But here I am to speak what I do know. 

You all did love him once, not without cause: 

What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him? 

O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, 

And men have lost their reason. Bear with me; 

My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, 

And I must pause till it come back to me.''


6 Mr Prime Minister , we know for sure it is not ambition in your case too , for you are a good man but then what about those 'honourable' men who are hiding behind your goodness ?Yes--- uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. And Sir---- what price this crown?? You have done your bit and more.Sometimes a leader has to say ' I Go--This Much and No More or Find a Better Man'. Mr Manmohan Singh --what are you waiting for, or , as the whispers have started ,-are you also really one of them????
Jai Hind

(please forward it so that it reaches one billion people)
