World Top 10 Fighter Plane (2011-12)

Here we are talking about world top 10 Air Craft (20011-12) according to technology like Stealth, Semi Stealth, 5th gen and 4th + gen Air Craft, multirole  etc…

my first name is

1- F-22 Raptor-                                                                                                                                                                    . The Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation supermaneuverable fighter aircraft that uses stealth technology. It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities that include ground attack,electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles  Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor and is responsible for the majority of the airframe, weapon systems and final assembly of the F-22. Program partner Boeing Defense, Space & Security provides the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems. First flight is taken in 7 sep 97 and introduced in 15 dec 2005

Lockheed Martin, teamed with Boeing and General Dynamics, had built and flown the demonstration prototype aircraft, designated YF-22. The first F-22 fighter aircraft was unveiled in April 1997 and was given the name Raptor.
“Carbon-fibre composites have been used for the F-22 fuselage frame.”                          U.S. ban on Raptor exports, and the ongoing development of the planned cheaper and more versatile F-35 resulted in calls to end F-22 production ,

F-22 Raptor is the only 5th generation fighter in service in 2011 , stealth technology , super avionics , vector thrust makes it number 1 with no other competitors near it now , but soon Su PAK FA T-50 and F-35 will challenge its superiority .”

2———————Sukhoi Pak FA t-50  (Asian favorite )

The Sukhoi PAK FA T-50 is a twin-engine jet fighter being developed by Sukhoi for the Russian Air Force. The Sukhoi T-50 is the prototype for PAK FA.The PAK FA is one of only a handful of stealth jet programs globally.

The PAK FA, a fifth generation jet fighter, is intended to be the successor to the MiG-29 and Su-27 in the Russian inventory and serve as the basis of the Sukhoi/HAL FGFA being developed with India. The T-50 prototype performed its first flight 29 January 2010 By 31 August 2010, it had made 17 flights and by mid-November, 40 in total. The second T-50 was to start its flight test by the end of 2010, but this was delayed until March 2011.                                                 First u have to know that PAK  FA  doesn’t mean pakistan fa, PAK FA means  [ Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsyi – Future Air Complex for Tactical Air Forces]. This intermediate class twin-engined fighter will be larger than a MiG-29 and smaller than a Su-27.
The aircraft will feature a long combat radius, supersonic cruise speed, low radar cross section, super maneuverability, and the ability to make short takeoffs and landings. In accordance with the technical requirements, the PAK FA will have a normal takeoff weight of 20 tons, which is close to the average normal takeoff weight of the two American airplanes, the F-35 JSF (17.2 tons) and the F-22 (24 tons). The new fighter (a medium version) will have a traditional wing form, though the experience gathered as a result of Berkut’s test flights will be taken in consideration when designing the fighter. It is supposed that it will be created using the Stealth technology, and equipped with two AL-41F engines by the Saturn scientific and industrial enterprise, a radar system with an active phased array (to all appearances, it will be produced by the Fazatron-NIIR corporation), and high-pecision weapons.

” SU PAK SF T-50 Russia`s first 5th generation plane , twin super cruise engine , best avionics system , Sukhoi background and out performance in simulation by USAF brings to this spot though still need to be tested but west have acknowledged it. JSF and T-50 will be future competitors and list could change according thaT

3–Sukhoi Su-30MKI / Sukhoi Su-35 (MY FAVORITE )

The Sukhoi Su-30MKI (NATO reporting nameFlanker-H) is an air superiority fighter  jointly developed by Russia’s Sukhoi and India’sHindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force (IAF). A variant of the (Sukhoi Su-30) and (SU- 35  Flanker-E is a single-seat, twin-engined supermaneuverable multirole fighter. It is a derivative of the Su-27 ‘Flanker’ , it is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.)

SU-30MKI -Development of the variant started after India signed a deal with Russia in 2000 to manufacture 140 Su-30 fighter jets. The first Russian-made Su-30MKI variant was accepted into the Indian Air Force in 2002, while the first indigenously assembled Su-30MKI entered service with the IAF in 2004.[ In 2007, the IAF ordered 40 additional MKIs.The IAF has 157 Su-30MKIs in active service as of January 2012;it plans to have a fleet of 272. The Su-30MKI is expected to form the backbone of the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet to 2020 and beyond.

The aircraft is tailor-made for Indian specifications and integrates Indian systems and avionics as well as French and Israeli subsystems. It has abilities similar to the Sukhoi Su-35 with which it shares many features and components,  comparable in cost to the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, but lacking in features such as stealth, but still it’s the best one , In 2004 India inked a deal with Russia to domestically produce the Novator K-100 missile for its Su-30MKI fighters. The Novator K-100 missile is designed to shoot down AWACS and otherC4ISTAR aircraft.,while keeping the launch platform out of range of any fighters that might be protecting the target.

Sukhoi`s  su 30 mki and su 35 is new and most admired series of planes with western avionics , super cruise speed , AWACS missile system and vector thrust can make it one of the best 4 th++  generation fighter plane in the List “. 

4————-F-35 Lightning II                                                                                                                            . The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, fifth generation multirole fighters under development to perform ground attack, reconnaissance, and air defense missions with stealth capability.

The  F-35 has three main models; the F-35A is a conventional takeoff and landing variant, the F-35B is a short take off and vertical-landing variant, and the F-35C is a carrier-based variant.

The F-35 is descended from the X-35, the product of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. JSF development is being principally funded by the United States, with the United Kingdom and other partner governments providing additional funding. The partner nations are either NATO members or close U.S. allies. It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin. The F-35 carried out its first flight on 15 December 2006. It will be introduced agter 2016

The United States plans to buy a total of 2,443 aircraft to provide the bulk of its tactical airpower for the U.S. Air ForceMarine Corps and Navy over the coming decades. The United KingdomItalyNetherlandsAustraliaCanadaNorwayDenmarkTurkeyIsrael and Japan are part of the development program and may equip their air services with the F-35

” Its a Future plane of USA & NATO , stealth , best avionics , vertical take off and 5 th generation fighter gives its 3rd Spot , what it lacks could be high cost of production thus cutting down the number of planes , single engine . “

 5———F/A-18 Hornet (F-18)

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole fighter jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets

The F/A-18 multi-mission aircraft can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases. The F/A-18 fills a variety of roles: air superiority, fighter escort, suppression of enemy air defenses, reconnaissance, forward air control, close and deep air support, and day and night strike missions. The F/A-18 Hornet replaced the F-4 Phantom II fighter and A-7 Corsair II light attack jet, and also replaced the A-6 Intruder as these aircraft were retired during the 1990s.

The F/A-18 has a top speed of Mach 1.8. It can carry a wide variety of bombs and missiles, including air-to-air and air-to-ground, supplemented by the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon. It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio. The F/A-18 has excellent aerodynamic characteristics, primarily attributed to its leading edge extensions

Since May 1994, the Hornet has been equipped with upgraded radar – the APG-73 -, which substantially increases the speed and memory capacity of the radar’s processors. In addition, today’s Hornets have a laser target designator/ranger, housed within the targeting forward-looking infrared sensor that enables the aircraft to deliver precision laser-guided bombs with pinpoint accuracy.

” F-18 hornet no doubt one the greatest fighter , seen lots of action with superior avionics from Boeing brings it to this spot but lacks vector thrust compared to Russian counterparts , and in one the dog fight display in US with Sukhoi , it was out gunned. “

 -6—–The Dassault Rafale                                                                                            . . Rafale (French pronunciation: ​[ʁafal]squall) is a French twin-engine delta-wing fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation. Dassault described the Rafale as being an omnirole fighter with semi-stealth capabilities.The Rafale is a multirole combat aircraft; capable of simultaneously undertaking air supremacyinterdictionreconnaissance, and the airborne nuclear deterrent missions.

The Rafale M entered service in 2001, and ten aircraft are operational on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.
Rafale B and C entered service with the French Air Force in June 2006, when the first squadron was established. The second air force squadron was set up in 2008.
Navy Rafale F1 standard fighters have air-to-air capability. Deliveries to the navy of the F2 standard, with air-to-ground missiles, began in May 2006 and 17 were delivered in May 2008. F1 aircraft are to be upgraded.

The Rafale is typically outfitted with the Thales RBE2 passive electronically scanned multi-mode radar. Thales claims to have achieved unprecedented levels of situational awareness through the earlier detection and tracking of multiple air targets for close combat and long-range interception, as well as real-time generation of three-dimensional maps for terrain-following and the real-time generation of high resolution ground maps for navigation and targeting,

very soon Rafael is the part of Indian Army ,

” The Dassault Rafale is semi stealth fighter 4++ genration plane with twin engine to support high speed performance including french avionics which makes it better to place at this position “.

 7——-JAS 39 Gripen

The Saab JAS 39 Gripen is a lightweight single-engine multirole fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force.

The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and has a top speed of Mach 2.

Weapon options include a 27mm Mauser internal cannon, Raytheon AIM-9 Sidewinder and AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles and Raytheon Paveway II laser-guided bombs. The aircraft is also being used to support the development of MBDA’s Meteor beyond visual-range air-to-air missile ,

Nato, south Africa, Brajil,thailand, uk ,switzerland and  holland is using Gripen or already oderd, India just miss it“Recent reports have came up that new Gripen NG will have lots of new upgrades far better than its counterparts and along with this it is participating in MMRCA , one of the factor to decided to find out best.”


The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-enginecanarddelta wingmultirole fighter.The Typhoon was designed by a consortium of three companies, EADSAlenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems, working through a holding company, Eurofighter GmbH, which was formed in 1986. It was initially introduced into service in 2003.

The Typhoon has entered service with the Austrian Air Force, the Italian Air Force, the German Air Force, the British Royal Air Force, the Spanish Air Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force.

Eurofighter Typhoon is the worlds most advanced new generation multi-role/swing-role combat aircraft available on the market. With 707 aircraft on contract and 559 aircraft ordered by six nations (Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), and in service with all nations, the aircraft is Europe’s largest military collaborative programme and delivers leading-edge technology, strengthening Europe’s aerospace industry in the global market.

Eurofighter Typhoon is the only fighter to offer wide-ranging operational capabilities whilst at the same time delivering unparalleled fleet effectiveness.

Careful attention to design and a clear vision of through-life technology insertion and capability enhancements will see the Eurofighter Typhoon maintaining the tactical advantage over whatever threats the coming decades bring.

The Eurofighter Typhoon has guaranteed for partner countries sustained growth, industrial capability, operational effectiveness and global competitiveness.

9——MIG 35

The Mikoyan MiG-35 (Russian: Микоян МиГ-35, NATO reporting nameFulcrum-F) is a further development of the MiG-29M/M2 and MiG-29K/KUB technology. It is classified as a 4++ generation jet fighter by Mikoyan.The first prototype was a modification of the aircraft that previously served as MiG-29M2 model demonstrator. 10 prototypes have been built so far and are currently subject to extensive field trials.The MiG-35 is now classed as a medium-weight aircraft because its maximum take-off weight has increased by 30 percent, exceeding its previous criteria of classification.

MiG Corporation first officially presented the MiG-35 internationally during the Aero India 2007 air show.The MiG-35 was officially unveiled when the Russian Minister of Defence, Sergey Ivanov, visited Lukhovitsky Machine Building Plant “MAPO-MIG”.The single seat version is designated MiG-35 and the two-seat version is MiG-35D. The fighter has vastly improved avionics and weapon systems,  the aircraft from relying on ground-controlled interception (GCI) systems and enables it to conduct independent multi-role missions.                                          Phazotron Zhuk AE AESA radar is installed in the production version of MiG-35Most of the systems introduced in the MiG-35 can be applied to older MiG-29s through upgrading programs.



“MIG 35 is one of the best plane  plane in the series of MIG lineup and because of there reputation they have worked hard and made changes according to western standards but still have to play action role in the coming future.”

10——The Chengdu J-10  (the pride of china)

j-10 (Jian-10 export designation F-10 Vanguard) is a multirole fighter aircraft designed and produced by the People’s Republic of China‘s Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (CAC) for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). Known in the West as the “Vigorous Dragon“, the J-10 is a multirole combat aircraft capable of all-weather operation.

The J-10 adopts a “tailless delta-canard” aerodynamic layout, which was originally developed for the cancelled J-9 fighter. The aircraft has the horizontal control surfaces moved forward to become a canard in front of the wing. When the aircraft pitches up, instead of forcing the tail down decreasing overall lift, the canard lifts the nose, increasing the overall lift. Because the canard is picking up the fresh air stream instead of the wake behind the main wing, the aircraft can achieve better control authority with a smaller-size control surface, thus resulting in less drag and less weight.

The J-10 bears some resemblance to three prior fighters: the Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-8, the Chengdu J-9 and the Israeli IAI Lavi,all of which were cancelled. While the Lavi is popularly described as having similar canard-configuration to the J-10,the original Chinese design of the J-9 preceded the Lavi. But it should also be noted that a number of jet fighter aircraft have similarities to the delta-winged and canard-configuration of the J-10, such as the Dassault Rafale and the Saab JAS 39 Gripen. The general designer Song Wencong has denied the J-10 was a copy of the Lavi, and said that it was a development of the indigenous J-9

“Chengdu J-10 is the pride of China declared by china, it is one of the most imp project of china. its really one of the gretest jet but still to have see lot of action and its fighter plane from china so its hard to say about the future prospect of this plane right now,

Dear frnds
after talking about top 10 Air Craft some of u surely said that their is some other AirCratf which have to be in Top -10
so lets talk about some other gr8 planes

1-The Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut (Russian: Су-47 БеркутGolden Eagle) (NATO reporting name Firkin), also designated S-32 and S-37 (not to be confused with the twin-engined delta canard design  offered by Sukhoi in the early 1990s under the designation Su-37) during initial development, was an experimental supersonic jet fighter developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. A distinguishing feature of the aircraft was its forward-swept wing[2] that gave the aircraft excellent agility and maneuverability.   

While serial production of the type never materialized, the sole aircraft produced served as a technology demonstrator prototype for a number of advanced technologies later used in the 4.5 generation fighter SU-35BM and current 5th generation fighter prototype Sukhoi PAK FA.
many of us want to see this plane in top 10, but my point of view that there are more upgraded models in top 10

2- JF-17 Thunder(the pride of pakistan)

The PAC JF-17 Thunder(the pride of pakistan), or CAC FC-1 Xiaolong, is a light-weight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft developed jointly by the Pakistan Air Force, the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex and the Chengdu Aircraft Industries Corporation of China.

The JF-17 has a top speed of Mach 1.6.It can carry a variety of missiles and bombs, including air to air and Air-to-surface missiles, supplemented by a 23/30 mm GSh-23-2 twin-barrel autocannon. It is powered by a RD-93 or WS-13 afterburning turbofan. Its unique diverterless supersonic inlet (DSI) makes it stealthy. Currently, the JF-17 is slated to become the backbone of Pakistan Air Force (PAF), complementing the F-16s as well as the J-10Bs (on order) within its aircraft ranks and is also expected to fill the duties of aerial reconnaissance, ground-attack, fighter and aerial interception.

Pakistan has already started induction, and has plans to induct around 250 units.The JF-17 will replace Pakistan’s ageing fleet of A-5C, Mirage-III, Mirage-V, and F-7P/PG by 2015. The first squadron was inducted in the Pakistan Air Force in February 2010.In China it is in an evaluation phase (passed design appraisal).Many other countries have also shown an interest in purchasing the JF-17 Thunder.

3- Dassault-Breguet Mirage 2000

The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was designed as a lightweight fighter based on the Mirage III in the late 1970s for the French Air Force.

In kargil war (India) it was the most effective weapon and aircraft of India

There was another important reason for Dassault to push the Mirage 2000. Developement of this small aircraft would also give the company a competitor to the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, which had defeated the Dassault Mirage F1 in a contest for a new fighter for the air forces of Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Norway. Small single-engined fighters were clearly the most appreciated by foreign customers, as experience with the larger, twin-engined Mirage 4000 would show

Users – france , india,egypt , greece,uae, peru, brajil & qatar etc…

 4-F-16 Fighting falcon

 F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976.

Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation,which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with M The Fighting Falcon is a fighter with numerous innovations including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of arelaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system that makes it a highly nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. The F-16’s official name is “Fighting Falcon”, but “Viper” is commonly used by its pilots, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viperstarfighterartin Marietta


5—-The HAL Tejas is a lightweight multirole fighter developed by India. It is a tailless  compound delta-wingdesign powered by a single engine. It came from the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) programme, which began in the 1980s to replace India’s aging MiG-21 fighters. Later, the LCA was officially named “Tejas“,meaning “Radiance”The Tejas has a pure delta wing configuration, with no tailplanes or foreplanes, and a single dorsal fin. It integrates technologies such asrelaxed static stabilityfly-by-wire flight control system, advanced digital cockpit, multi-mode radar, integrated digital avionics system, advanced composite material structures and a flat rated engine. The Indian Air Force (IAF) is reported to have a requirement for 200 single-seat and 20 two-seat conversion trainers, while the Indian Navy may order up to 40 single-seaters to replace its Sea Harrier FRS.51 andHarrier T.60.

The Tejas achieved a speed of over 1,350 kilometres per hour (840 mph) during its sea level flight trials, thus becoming the second supersonic fighter developed indigenously by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited after the HAL Marut.] The Tejas was cleared in January 2011 for use by Indian Air Force pilots. It is to reach final operational clearance in 2013.

5- JH 7/7A-  Xian JH-7 ( fighter-bomber); NATO reporting name Flounder), also known as the FBC-1 (Fighter/Bomber China-1) Flying Leopard, is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine fighter-bomber in service with the People’s Liberation Army Naval Air Force(PLANAF), and the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). The main contractors are Xian Aircraft Industry Corporation (XAC) and the 603rd Aircraft Design Institute (later named the First Aircraft Institute of AVIC-1

The JH-7A had a lighter and stronger airframe than the JH-7, allowing the newer aircraft to carry a maximum ordnance load of 9000 kg. In PLANAF, this allowed four YJ-82 anti-ship missiles to be carried, compared to the two on the JH-7.] In addition, it had JL-10A pulse doppler radar, fly-by-wireflight control system, one-piece windscreen, additional hardpoints, and could fire laser-guided bombs and Kh-31anti-radiation missiles. The existing JH-7s were upgraded with JH-7A electronics

Vishal Shresth

Indian Air Force (make us proud)

Indian Air force is in top 5 air craft power in the world, it may be 3rd or 4rth air craft power in technology and in numbers,

first we talk about the latest technology called stealth  technology and then about our Air craft power with versions & no.

Stealth aircraft are aircraft  that use stealth technology  to avoid detection by employing a combination of features to interfere with Radar as well as reduce visibility in the infrared, visual, audio, and radio frequency spectrum. Development of stealth technology likely began in Germany during world war 2. Well-known modern examples of stealth aircraft include the United States’ F-117 nighthawk , the B-2 spirit , the f-22 raptor ,and the F-35 lighting 2

While no aircraft is totally invisible to radar, stealth aircraft make it difficult for conventional radar to detect or track the aircraft effectively, increasing the odds of a successful attack. Stealth is the combination of passive low observable (LO) features and active emitters such as Low Probability of Intercept Radars, radios and laser designators. These are usually combined with active defenses such as chaff,flares & ECM . It is accomplished by using a complex design philosophy to reduce the ability of an opponent’s sensors to detect, track, or attack the stealth aircraft. This philosophy also takes into account the heat, sound, and other emissions of the aircraft as these can also be used to locate it.

Full-size stealth combat aircraft demonstrators have been flown by the United States (in 1977), Russia (in 2010) and China (in 2011), while the US military  has already adopted three stealth designs, and is preparing to adopt another.

The Stealth aircraft will continue to play a valuable role in air combat with the United States using the F-22 raptor, B-2 Spirit, and the F-35 lighting 2(single engine single seater) to perform a variety of operations.

The Russian Sukhoi Pak FA stealth multi-role fighter is scheduled to be introduced from 2015, to perform a wide variety of missions. frnds …First u have to know that pak fa doesn’t mean pakistan fa, PAK FA means  [ Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsyi – Future Air Complex for Tactical Air Forces]. This intermediate class twin-engined fighter will be larger than a MiG-29 and smaller than a Su-27

The Sukhoi/Hal FGFA ,SU30 mki  the Indian version of the Su  Pak FA is scheduled to be introduced from 2017 in higher numbers, also to perform a wide variety of missions.

BrahMos missile under Su-30MKI maquette. MAKS-2009, the Su 30 mki is 4th + generation semi stealth plane make us proud

The China plans to introduce the Chendgu J-20 stealth multi-role fighter round 2018. A prototype was flown in early 2011

in India we are depending on Sukhoi SU-30 Mki , MIG- 29 ,Jaguar and Mirage 200 etc….

there are many type of  plane in our air force  like- 1—fighter air craft (long & small distance), 2-Air Superiority Fighter,3-Ground-attack,4-bomber,5-Cargo Aircraft,6-Aerial Refueling, 7-Airliner, 8-Airborne Early Warning,9-Trainer, 10-Interceptor 11-Anti-submarine warfare 12-Light Transport Aircraft etc….

Sukhoi Su-30MKI (NATO power name is Flanker -H)  is an  Air superiority Fighter  jointly developed by Russia’s Sukhoi and India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force (IAF). A variant of the Sukhoi Su-30, it is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.

Development of the variant started after India signed a deal with Russia in 2000 to manufacture 140 Su-30 fighter jets. The first Russian-made Su-30MKI variant was accepted into the Indian Air Force in 2002, while the first indigenously assembled Su-30MKI entered service with the IAF in 2004. In 2007, the IAF ordered 40 additional MKIs. The IAF has 157 Su-30MKIs in active service as of January 2012;it plans to have a fleet of 272. The Su-30MKI is expected to form the backbone of the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet to 2020 and beyond.

The aircraft is tailor-made for Indian specifications and integrates Indian systems and avionics as well as French and Israeli subsystems. It has abilities similar to the Sukhoi Su-35 with which it shares many features and components

और भी आतंकवादी और गद्दार है कसाब के सिवा!

कसाब को फांसी  मिली, अच्छि खबर है देश के लिये ।

अब देर क्यों हुइ ? गुप्त क्यों रखा ? दफनाया मुस्लिम तरीके  से या नहीं?

तारीख क्यों छुपाई ? जल्लाद कौन था?

अरे दोस्तों ये सब राज-नैतिक  बवाल है! और हमें राजनेतिक सोच छोर कर ,

सामाजिक मूल्यों का ख्याल रखना चाहिए , धयान रहे कसाब एक इन्सान नही था!

कसाब एक आतंकवादी था और इनका न इमान होता है न मजहब 

माँ भारती के लाल हम सब है , हम हिन्दू ,मुस्लिम ,सिख,बौद्ध  या ईसाई सब एक है \

और मुझे पूरा भरोसा है की सब इससे सहमत होंगे की कसाब  को फांसी मिलनी ही चाहिये ।

दोस्तों और भी आतंकवादी और गद्दार है कसाब के सिवा!

अब उनकी बारी आनी चाहिए। भ्रष्ट नेता,नौकरशाह और उधोगपति को भी उसके अंजाम तक पहुचना है।

अन्ना हजारे के साथ हम है आप भी सामाजिक आन्दोलनों का हिस्सा बने , राजनीती पे लगाम लगाना जरुरी है , Image

और  सामाजिक अन्दोलोनो से जुरना आजकी मांग है , समय की मांग है ।

उठो जागो और संघर्ष करो ! जय हिन्द 


हाँ ! मैं बिहारी हूँ ! yes ! i am Bihari!

सुबह 7 .30 मिनट हुए थे दिनांक 14 नवम्बर  और  हमेशा की तरह हाथ जोरे मैं भगवान से प्राथना कर रहा था , पूजा खत्म करने के बाद हमेशा मैं  लोगो के लिए प्राथना /दुवा करता हु।

आज सुबह से  ही श्री बाला साहब ठाकरे की स्वस्थ की खबरे न्यूज़ में थी , मैंने भी उनके लिये  दुवा मांगना चाहा , हाथ जोरे आंखे बंद की और प्राथना करने लगा की तभी मन कहि और चल परा,यकायक बीते दिनों का स्मरण आ गया,और आखे डबडबा गयी,आंशु झर परे, याद आ गयी अगस्त 2003 की मुंबई के छत्रपति शिवाजी टर्मिनल में चाय पीते 5 लरके (विध्यार्थी ) जो की परीक्छा देने आये थे (शायद रेलवे की थी)सुबह का समय था .पिंटू जो की मेरे शहर दरभंगा से था और उन सबका अगुवा था ने किसी लोकल लरके से एक एड्रेस (पता ) पूछा , लरके ने जवाब देने के बजाय  उससे पूछा यहाँ क्यू आये ?
पिंटू ने जवाब दिया -भैया परिकछा  देने! उस लोकल लरके ने उनसब्को  डाटा  कहा-भैया होगा तेरा बाप और सालो यहाँ क्या खैराते बटती है,भागो बिहार! बिहारी कही के, और फिर वो चला गया। ये  बचचे जिनकी उम्र 17 से 19 साल रही होगी , वो सब डर गये, उन्हें लगा की वो अपने प्यारे मादरे -वतन हिंदुस्तान  में नही कही दूर दुश्मन देश में है।
खैर जैसे-तैसे हिम्मत करके वो आगे बढे, मंजिल उन्हें पता थी मगर अब वो  घबराये से सहमे -सहमे से किशोर थे ,जो उस घरी को कोश रहे थे जब उन्होंने मायानगरी आने की ठानी।
अभी वो बेचारे सरक पे पैर रखा ही होगा की शिवसेना के राकछस हॉकी स्टिक और लाठी झंडे लेकर बीसियों गुंडे आन परे,उनलोगों ने जिस भी लरके को देखा मरना-पीटना शुरु कर दिया,उन गुंडों में एक वो भी था जिसने पहले ही पिंटू को गलिया दी थी,बाकि बचचों का तो पता नही पर पिंटू आज भी लंगरा के चलता है,और वो मुंबई को हिंदुस्तान का हिस्सा मानने से डरता है।
उस गरीब के माँ-बाप उसका उचित इलाज भी नहीं करा सके , माँ की ममता को कितना गेहरा अघात पंहुचा ये एक माँ ही जान  सकती है ।

अभी मैं इस दुखद घटना की याद से बहार निकला ही था की एक और याद ने मुझको फिर रुला दिया,दिनु एक रिक्शा वाला का बेटा था, वो बेचारा अपनी बीवी और एक बच्चे के साथ मुंबई चल परा, करीब एक साल मुंबई में होटलों में काम करने के बाद उसने एक रेहरी निकली , सब्जी की रेहरी ,उसकी अपनी बिज़नस ,वो बहुत खुश रहने लगा, अपने माँ-बाप को अब पैसे भी भेजने लगा, इस बिच उसके एक और बेटे हुए,भगवान को धन्यवाद् देते हुए उसकी जिंदगी काफी हसी-ख़ुशी बीत रही थी की तभी जुलाई 2010 मनसे के लोगो ने उत्तर-भारतीयों के खिलाफ हिंसक बयान-बाजी शुरू कर दी ,और फिर दादर के पास इक शाम मेरे दिनु (जिसने मुझे गोद में खिलाया था) की लाश मिली ,उस दिन पुरे मुंबई और उसके आसपास करीब सैकरो  लोगो की बेदर्दी से पिटाई हुए,पुलिस ने एक भी हिंसक घटना को नहीं माना हाय! रे कांग्रेस सरकार ! और बेशर्म हैवान शिव-सैनिक और मनसे के गुंडे,

आह! क्यु नहीं लगेगी उन माँ की जिसने अपना बेटा खोया? क्यू तुझे भगवान माफ़ करे? क्यू तेरे घर में भी मातम का आलम न हो? क्या हम हिन्दुस्तानी नहीं है? क्या ये हमारा देश नहीं है?
रोते हुए मैंने बस इतना बोला  -हे ! भगवन मैं निशब्द हु, दुवा भी नहीं मांग सकता, तुझे जो करना है कर, और ठाकरे साहब आपके लिए मेरे पास कोई दुवा/विनती नहीं है- क्युकी हाँ ! मैं बिहारी हूँ ! और मुझे गर्व है इस बात का ।
जय हिन्द जय बिहार

सिर्फ हंगामा करना हमारा मकसद नहीं-अन्नाजी!

श्री  अन्ना हजारे ने सर्वोदय  एन्क्लेव  बी – 18 मे दो रूम का सेट लिया और  आज  रविवार को अपने सर्वोदय एंक्लेव ऑफिस का उद्घाटन किया। शनिवार को हुई बैठक में ही अन्ना के इस नए कार्यालय  की जानकारी मीडिया  को दे  दी  थी । अब  भ्रस्टाचार रूपी दानव के अंत  करने का नया  ठिकाना लोगो को मिल  गया ।कल  शनिवार  को  बैठक  में श्री हजारे और बेदिजी  ने सरकार  और केजरीवाल दोनों  पे तीखा हमला  किया ।  

बेदिजी  ने  साफ -साफ़  लहजे  में काहा  की अब  केजरीवाल  को अपनी  संस्था का नया नाम धुंध लेना चाहिए।अन्ना ने कहा कि वह केजरीवाल से कोई टकराव नहीं चाहते हैं लेकिन वह आईएसी का नाम वापस चाहते हैं, बशर्ते वह इसे वापस कर दें तो। उनके करीबी सहयोगी  मेघा पाटेकर  ने भी कहा की आजकल  केजरीवाल जिस तरह से आरोप लगा रहे है  उससे  कुछ नही मिलने वाला  आरोपों की गहरायी तक जाकर  उसपे काम  करने  की जरुरत है |

अन्ना  ने स्पस्ट कहा की जन-लोकपाल बन के रहेगी  और अगर  ये सरकार  ना  मानी  तो  इनका अंत निश्चित  है ।अन्ना  ने   पहले  भी कहा था  की मुझे केजरीवाल  से कोई मतभेद  नही और अगर वो किसी  भ्रष्ट नेता  के खिलाफ  चुनाव  लरते  है तो उनके लिए प्रचार  कर भी सकते है।मगर उनके राजनेतिक सोच का कभी  समर्थन नहीं  करूँगा ।
शनिवार को पांच घंटे चली कोर कमेटी की बैठक के बाद अन्ना ने कहा कि उनका आंदोलन भ्रष्टाचार और संपूर्ण व्यवस्था परिवर्तन के मुद्दों पर केंद्रित होगा। उन्होंने लोकपाल कानून को लेकर सरकार को जमकर कोसा। अन्ना ने कहा कि सरकार की नीयत साफ नहीं है। सरकार कमजोर बिल लाएगी तो उसे स्वीकार नहीं किया जाएगा, 
इस  बिच  कुछ दुष्ट किस्म  के समर्थको  ने आज रविवार को  मीडिया के सामने हंगामा किया ,उनका  कहना  था की -ये मकान  एक समाजसेवी  और कांग्रेसी  कार्यकर्ता का है।और  ये अन्ना जी के मकसद के खिलाफ है,इस पर माकन मालिक बी सी शर्मा ने कहा की अन्नाजी के साथ सभी लोग है,वो कांग्रेसी भी है और बी जे पि के लोग भी है,और मैंने मकान किराये पे दिया तो इसमें  क्या हर्ज़  है?भ्रस्ताचार के खिलाफ आन्दोलन को सबका समर्थन है और जो  बे-वजह इस बात पे  हंगामा करता है वो जरुर अन्नाजी का  नहीं होगा | 
मेरा मानना  है की पायल अगरवाल को अगर कुछ करना ही था या कोई शिकायत ही थी तो वो सीधे अन्नाजी से या बेदी जी मिलती और अपना शिकायत रखती,मगर उनको भी मीडिया की फूतेज से प्यार है ऐसे दुष्ट  लोगो से मेरा आग्रह है की वो केजरीवाल जी के साथ हो ले। यहाँ के लोग, अन्नाजी के लोग मीडिया में जाकर हंगामा नही मचाते,बल्कि समस्या के समाधान पे धयान देते है वो भी सादगी के साथ।
अन्नाजी ने कितनी ही बार कहा है की -सिर्फ हंगामा करना हमारा मकसद नहीं ,हमारा मकसद है की कुछ परिणाम निकलना चाहिए !
अन्नाजी के नई कोर कमेटी में कुल 55 लोग होंगे। अन्य नामों पर विचार किया जा रहा है। इसके अलावा एक समन्वय समिति बनेगी, जिसके हर राज्य में दो सदस्य होंगे। हर राज्य से 50 स्वयंसेवकों को चुनकर प्रशिक्षण दिया जाएगा।

अन्ना और गाँधी नाम की शक्ति –

अन्ना और गाँधी नाम की शक्ति –
देखिये  दिखावा करने बहुत लोग आएंगे, कुछ दूर साथ चलेंगे मिडिया के साथ साथ चिपके रहेंगे फिर रफू-चक्कर हो जायेंगे,
कुछ ऐसे भी है जो साथ चलेंगे, लम्बा चलेंगे, और अन्नाजी या गांधीजी का गुण गायेंगे, नाम कमाएंगे फिर उनकी जीवन शैली और अहिंसा, सत्य के मार्ग का अनुशरण करने की घोसना करेंगे और जैसे ही सत्ता हिलाने की स्थिति में आयेंगे वो सत्ता लोभी बन अन्नाजी का साथ छोर अलग धारा बनायेंगे राजनीती करेंगे और कहेंगे भाई हम तो अन्नाजी का ही सम्मान करते है और उनके लिए ही अलग राह से देश  के लिए लरेंगे मगर हम उन्हें गद्दार ही कहेंगे! गद्दार!!

मगर इन गद्दारों के आने-जाने के बाद भी अन्नाजी और गांधीजी के नाम की शक्ति एसी है की लाख कठिनाई आये मगर लोग,आम लोग , गरीब जनता हमेशा-हमेशा अन्नाजी  जेसो के साथ खरा रहता है,बिना थके बिना रुके,
अन्ना जी के तरह ही कुछ और लोग भी है जो इनके(अन्नाजी ) आशीर्वाद प्राप्त कर अलग से भ्रस्ताचार से लर रहे है, जैसे श्री वाय पि सिंह , मेघा पाटेकर, राजेंद्र जी (वाटर मेन ) ,जस्टिस हेग्रे और एक पॉलिटिशियन भी है सुब्रह्मण्यम स्वामी(इनका अन्नाजी से कोई लेने देना नहीं)  और अन्य भी है, ये सभी या तो अन्नाजी के नाम पे या गांधीजी के नाम पे या इनका अनुशरण कर इनके पथ पे आगे बढ़ रहे है,
ये वो लोग है जो आरोप  लगा  कर भाग  नहीं जाते , बल्कि उस आरोप को अंजाम तक पहुचने का कम करते है,  ये वो लोग है जो कोर्ट और अन्य तरीको से उन भ्रष्ट लोगो को पद च्युत और जेल तक भेवाने का माद्दा रखते है, बिना डरे बिना झुके, ये अपने मित्रो को भी नही छोरते , सच्चाई के राह पे हमेशा अग्रसर|
अन्ना और गाँधी नाम की शक्ति ही कुछ ऐसी है की लोग अकेले ही राह पे निकल परते है- ग़ालिब ने कहा था- ” मैं अकेले ही चला था जानिबे मंजिल मगर, लोग आते रहे और करवा बनता गया”|
गाँधी जी और श्री अन्ना हजारे के उन सभी समर्थको को जो नेपथ्य से उनकी राह पे चलते है, जिन्हें हम नहीं जानते, मगर वो भी एक महत्वपूर्ण व्यक्ति है उन आन्दोलनों के सफलता के लिए, हम उन सभी गुमनाम समर्थको को सलाम करते है जिन्हें मिडिया या हम फूटेज नहीं दे पाते, वीर तुम बढे चलो वीर तुम बढे चलो
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द के लोगो 

आप खुद उस तरह ढल जाओ जिस रूप में आप औरो को देखना चाहते  हो -महात्मा गाँधी
आप भ्रस्ताचार के खिलाफ हो तो आप भी भ्रस्ताचार छोरो – अन्ना हजारे
