Petition to Anyone who desires Clean and healthy India

Let's Change 60 crore Indians to Shun Open Defecation and use Toilets to make India Clean

Nearly, 60 crore Indians are defecating in open and excrete  65,000 tonnes of human faeces (Night Soil)  into the environment each day, thereby making India number one open defecation country in the world.  One GRAM of human faeces contains: • 10,000,000 viruses • 1,000,000 bacteria • 1,000 parasite cysts,   So one GRAM human faeces is sufficient to make entire city sick Open defecation is seriously affecting the health of one billion Indians; no one is immune and suffers in one form or the other. As per Study conducted by World Bank, under water and sanitation program with assistance from Australian Govt. Aid, UK Aid, Indians pay Rs. 244000 crore, ( Rs. 2.44 Trillions or US$ 53.8 billion) per year as price due to inadequate and poor sanitation. This was the equivalent of 6.4 percent of India’s GDP in 2006.This means a per person annual impact of Rs. 2,180 (US$48) Open defecation poses a serious threat to the health of children in India. Every year, diarrhea kills 188,000 children under five in India. Children weakened by frequent diarrhea episodes are more vulnerable to malnutrition, stunting, pneumonia and other infections. As per studies conducted by international organisations and leading Universities, poor sanitation is affecting physical and mental growth of children.  Women are worst sufferers of Open defecation as it exposes them to the danger of physical attacks and harassment as they've to go to fields in early morning or late evening for defecation. Further, women can not go outside in day time, if need arises they've to hold  their bladders and bowels, this makes them vulnerable to many diseases. "Lack of toilets puts India's health and rural women's safety at risk", as reported by The Guardian. The BBC reported, "India's sanitation crisis kills women" and it published the story of the gruesome rape and hanging of two teenage girls in the populous Uttar Pradesh state again proves how women have become the biggest victims of India's sanitation crisis. The two innocent girls were gone outside for defecating, use of toilets could have saved their life. Poor sanitation also cripples national development: workers produce less, live shorter lives, save and invest less, and are less able to send their children to school. Let's join hands, create awareness about open defecation and motivate Indians to build and use toilets, so as to restore Nation's pride, our women's honor, our children's health and robust economy. Let's pledge that we will not indulge in open defecation nor will let any Indian to defecate in open by educating and motivating him/her.

Petition to Shri Narendra Modi, Shri Rajnath Singh

Make Women Safe in India

Woman Not Object - Make Women Safe in India -  Crime against women has increased over the years with no end in sight. No government has taken any specific steps to make 50% of our population live without fear.  This aspect is no less than terrorism based on gender making them and their family live in fear of their safety. Everyday when a woman steps out of the home... she steps out in our country where she is probably eve-teased, sexually harassed or made to feel uncomfortable of her gender or on the worst side rapped, murdered or acid thrown at her.  Women are considered an object. It hampers their right to move freely or dress freely as per their wish. No less affected are their family members on their count. Till a woman comes back home safely from her outing... their parents and well wishers live in worry.  Its high time that something is done on this subject rather than we continue to ignore it and live like an ostrich with our heads under the sand.  By virtue of this petition a request, urge and demand is made from Prime Minister India to consider the following suggestions and take concrete steps towards making 60 Crore women in India feel safe and secure. He should amend the constitution as necessary to this end. It is pertinent to note here that providing safe living to its citizen is the first and foremost duty of any government especially in case of vulnerable population.  Suggestions for women's safety and security are as under -  1) Establish Woman only police station in every district of India to be directly under an officer no less than Inspector General rank. She should be a woman. Also the entire police station to be handled by woman officers.  2) All cases of crime against woman in their respective districts to be transfered or registered in the above Woman Police station.  3) Arrest of an accused only after vetting of the FIR by the Inspector General and on her order. This to ensure no harassment is caused because of frivolous or false case.  4) Amend the constitution and establish a Central Bureu of Safety & Security of Woman.  5) All woman police station to report to the above Bureau on all its FIR and investigations. Any woman facing difficulties in getting her FIR registered can approach this Bureu to lodge compaint.  6) Establish a Nation wide call centre having one number across India for women to call and seek help when in distress in real time. The number should be like 100 which we use at present  to call police to report a crime.  7) Establish dedicated trial courts to only deal with crime against women for speedy judgement. The judge of this court should be a woman. It must be equipped with video conferencing facility for complainant woman and for the witness of the case. This will ensure hassle free trial encouraging more woman to report crime against them bringing more perpetrators to justice.  8) Media campaign must be run regularly to highlight the functioning of these dedicated police stations and dedicated trial courts to create and environment of fear of law in anti socials or perpetrators of crime against wonen. This will create an environment of sense of security in the mind of women and their parents and their family.  The above suggestions in the petition have been drawn expecting much needed and long overdue reform alongside taking every other step in overhauling our system towards making women feel safe and secure.  Thanking you

Ban SUNNY LEONE in INDIA for encouraging Indian girls to go NUDE or becoming a PORN STAR

As you all know very well that Sunny Leone is Porn Star and she was happily chosen this proffesion to earn money and fame.. so she did.. she was not any victim of surcumstances or situation like she was not raped.. or her parents were not cancer patients or there was no other immergency need. So it was her happily choise to become porn star. Also same with her husband Daniel Weber who's divorcee and did a second marriage with Sunny Leone as a business deal. So for both of them its a great understanding to earn money without any shame or guilt.  Now as sunny came in India and started working here it was their long visioned plan to make a good money in India as being a porn star it was temporary thing in US but because of her background she knew she gonna get good attention in India and that same happen.. she knew she is not at all n actor still she wanted to encash her background in India. Now as she got fail as being an Indian actress even after doing so many films still she is a successful item girl in bollywood movies and filmmakers taking her as a performer to get their movie promoted well .. for makers also its just a business. But as she become much highlighted in media as per her strategy and PR plans she is a talk about in India also she is being featured in many ads prints also goes for appearances n performances at various events. And her old business is still flourishing so well. Her website www.sunnyleone.com still doing well and they have many other porn sites for which they still producing porn films so they are making good money from there n here as well.  Making money or getting fame is not a problem that's good thing but for our culture and society she is growing up as big decease if u ask how so leme explain.. its because of her success and growth in india now indian girls starts giving example of her.. as if sunny being a porn star can earn much money name n fame all the luxuries they why we can't go nude or why we can't be a porn actor to earn much money name n fame for example actress Esha Gupta's nude photo shoot and also many aspiring models and actresses choosing her way to earn money n fame by easy way.. not just models n actresses also a normal indian girl now wishes to be like sunny leone.. for example there are many short movies on Youtube even one Ram Gopal Verma made Main Sunny Leone banana chahti hun.. in which girls explains how there is no any problem becoming Sunny Leone .. because Money is everything..  So is this good that a girl from any good family from our indian culture can think even becoming sunny leone or becoming porn star.. No na.. yes afterall we are Indians we have our cultural values and we should follow that.. which father or mother will be prould who's daughter if start doing porn films for money..??? No one i guess.. none of parents wish their child to become porn star.. As Sunny is capturing indians youth by making impression on their mind of her success n luxury indian youth already started following her footsteps.. no wonder if soon she can contest elections and become some minister then stopping her will be impossible. . As youth now gives example of chaiwala becoming prime minister so the same will start giving example a porn star becomes minister in India so what's bad in becoming porn star..???  Come lets unite together and stop this decease for our society n culture named Sunny Leone before it become plague n spread all over..  Lets sign this petition and appeal to honorable ministers to ban her working n living in India so we can save our country  Regards  Dinesh Tiwari  Mumbai

Petition to Chief Minister of Karnataka, chief minister of uttar pradesh

Restore pride n dignity of our well-performing women officers D Roopa and Shrestha Thakur

Two different women IPS officers, Two different governments. Same humiliating treatment!What was their crime? Performing their duty without compromise! Shrestha Thakur, DSP in Uttar Pradesh took on local BJP leaders for violating traffic rules. As a punishment, she was shunted to Bahraich near Nepal border by the BJP government in the state. D Roopa, DIG(Prisons) in Karnataka took on her senior while exposing alleged irregularities in the Central Prison at Parappana Agrahara regarding the VVIP treatment for Sasikala. As a punishment she has been transferred to commissioner of road safety and traffic by the Congress government in the state. Instead of rewarding for doing their job with a sense of duty and honesty, these highly accomplished women of integrity have been mis-treated and humiliated by the politicians from the BJP in one case, and the Congress in the other case. Enough is enough! We have the problem of not having enough women aspiring to take up challenging roles in the civil services and police services. And when they take up the challenge and perform their duty, our politicians mistreat and humiliate them like this? We appeal to the authorities in Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka to reinstate these women officers in their previous roles and restore their pride and dignity.
