I am originally from Bombay India, born 1948. I came to the US in 1974. I have two grown sons. 

Post my divorce, I obtained an MBA from SUNY at Buffalo, in Financial Institutions & Markets. I own a Financial Planning Practice (as a franchisee with a large Broker Dealer). I have been in the business since 1997. 

In 2002, I was the Democratic Party candidate for Congress in NY26CD. (www.narimanforcongress.org). In 2004, I was one of 25 winners in C-span's 25th. Anniversary Contest. 

I have written extensively on Social security and Federal Budget issues - both as a columnist for www.yellowtimes.org (now defunct) - and sent in papers to White House and Commissions. I have a petition to Stop Congress from looting our Trust Funds written in March 2001, which has turned out to be prescient with the Bush tax cuts and ensuing deficits and exploding national debt.

I am currently (well since 2003!) working on and off on my own book (more off than on, for the past three years of the stock market debacle!) 

My favorite poem is Rudyard Kipling's IF. 

I have sought from a young age to "be good" and "do good", which is also a primary tenet of the world's first Monotheistic Religion: "Manashi, Gavashni, Kunashni" --" "Good thoughts; Good Words; Good Deeds". If I had not been born a Zoroastrian, I would very likely have become a Nun in my youth. I now follow my own version of spirituality. I do not belong to any organized religion; though, as I am often want to say the "New Testament" makes my heart sing, and my soul soar! 

Political Ideology: I consider myself a democrat, because I do believe there is a definite role for government to protect the least amongst us, from the excesses of the powerful. I see the Republican Conservative elite (members of Congress and Fox News types) as cockeyed cynicists (opposite of the old song, "Cockeyed Optimist" from the movie & Play- South Pacific), who engage in Orwellian speak. They are deliberately cockeyed (or one-eyed) in that they read the Preamble to the Constitution, and see the words, they "choose" to cynically see: Federal Government is to be responsible primarily for the "National Defense", but obtusely miss the every next phrase in the same sentence "and General Welfare". They are ideologues first, republicans second, and US Citizens a distant third! 

As for myself, I am more of a progressive pragmatist - I don't necessarily follow a Party Line - in my policy ideas and ideals. (Me thinks I have just happenstanced on to my pseudonym!)

Cry Baby CEOs! The article puts the blame on the economy spluttering squarely on the back of Big Business, who having garnered over $2.5 T in cash, are sitting on the sidelines. In 2009, Obama used a Stimulus and Bailout of Banks & Auto Cos. to keep the USA from plunging into another Great Depression. Money the Gov't did not have, as Bush 2 had left Obama with a $1.3 T deficit. Since, the March 6,2009 lows the stock market has surged.

Debt Ceiling Ultimatum -- Obama's Missed Opportunity during his July 25th. National Address The GOP and FAR Right (T.E.A. Party) have chosen for the first time to hold the nation hostage to their ideology. This is not a clean fight on the values of both sides. This is a fight on the ideological bent of the nation with one party holding a grenade and threatening to pull the pin out. The "Debt Ceiling" increase should be a clean vote, as it has for all prior presidents. This article explains why and how Obama s

Pass Debt Ceiling Increase or Face act of Treason! This Op Ed explains why members of Congress who voted on one or Bills/ Laws that led to the increase in our "Past due" debt / deficit, would under Article 4 & 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment be faced with the Charge of Treason, if they did not "raise the debt ceiling" out of crass politics, or simple ignorance to pay off those past due debts.

A FAIRER TWO-STATE SOLUTION The article explains why after 63 years we still have 1 state - not two-state solution. It is because American Presidents and Congresses have allowed Israel to use the cudgel of friendship over American values of "Laws over persons", and "self determination' of peoples. The stated US policy of a two State Solution is a canard, as long as we do not reevaluate the facts & as a fair arbiter allow for two States to finally exist.

A Genuine Financial Industry Reform Bill A sure fire Financial Industry Reform Bill that would prevent the next Great Depression. The Dodd Bill does not prevent "Too Big to Fail" It merely has an (unlikely) method to unwind a Too Big to Fail Bank, after an Institution has failed. Duh!
