Unemployment and underemployment is rising
This is almost similar to the movie "The Day After Tomorrow"
Muslim party should hold their head high and not accept the land 5 acres land. If they do, then it legitimises the demolition of the Babri structure. And who can guarantee that same thing would not happen again in future? Don't trust these back-stabbers. Look at Kashmir, NRC. Showing too much kindness is sometimes denying your right.
Fed up of this government and its ideologies that make no sense to the people who are educated and sorted
So basically you are talking about two cases to be merged in one. Looks like you have no idea that Babri masjid case is running in the court and will reach conclusion. When there are two separate cases, howcome the ruling be one.
Anyways your intentions are clear from your writing. Irresponsible and absolute crap article and judgement
A very sad day for all those that are not Hindu! Mob rules in India! More destruction will follow!
The Suprem Court has proven now only Hindus can receive justice in India!
The Supreme Court of India has now approved mob rule. God help India now. Many more destructions will now occur and lynchings!
Unlike Islam- where worship offered in a mosque must be exclusively toward Allah- in a Hindu place of worship, the presiding deity is not the exclusive object of worship. Indeed, Buddhists, Jains etc can enter Hindu temples dedicated to a particular deity. Thus, whereas the Hindu deity can show continuous occupancy as evidenced by continuous worship, more particularly after 1986,the Muslim plaintiff can't do anything similar. In Indian Law only temple deities have legal personalities. The Universal Lord does not.
Islam being monotheistic, denies that there is a local version of the Creator. Furthermore, a disused structure is not a mosque. However, if there had been no better claim on the property and it had been restored to a Muslim organization they could have resumed usage of it as a mosque. In this case, the Court found a superior claim existed. However, the Muslims were entitled to compensation because clearly they were deprived of a place of worship to which they previously had access.
Truth is bitter. Cover up the inefficiency , false and mindless implementation with past blames, hatred and divert the people. Perhaps conscience stricken will never comment on this reality.
The law is very clear, but the author is not happy when GOI follows it. What does this mean? " He now lives before moving to New York.
NDTV always always anti modi, shah as they are under scanner in PML cases , pro anti national, tukde tukde gangs not worried about PM's life threat by naxals arrested few months ago . total disgusting channel , I hate rabbish who make a fun on Rafael puja and goes for chat puja with bare foot and tokri on his head with police body guards . why people are provided security for speaking ill will against India and not for speaking nationalism and corrupts in system . modi is most honest PM in India even then our bureaucrats , media, judiciary try to defame him , not work towards citizens welfare by imparting their duty like.modiji and in same way his party legislatures, workers .
It seems world wide discussion about global warming and climate change has not reached the shores of India. Indian government has been inactive and aloof to the health of its citizens. Every year they face the same problem neither government nor bureaucrats have undertaken step to ease the choked and heavy air of Indian capital. It has been in news worldwide.
People should be forced to handle the environment in a responsible manner. Germany has been struggling to frame its environmental policy. Only last month it was presented, though it addresses number of burning problems, but it has been heavily criticsed by the opposition parties.
Undoubtedly, framing environmental policy is onus of Environment ministry along with other ministries namely, power and industry. It covers more than subtle burning in fields, coal fired power plants, diesel cars without catalysts, burning of coal, wood and cow dung, etc. all contribute to the pathetic situation.
Unfortunately, the Environment Minister of India is busy playing classical music and meditating in hope that the fog would disappear by the force of his prayers. It is the entire cabinet of Modi government, who has been immune to this problem. They are to busy spreading their devisive policy. They forget that clean air is one of the basic human rights.
Judiciary doesn't have competence to frame and enforce any policy, save environment. There are too many stakeholders involved who have to be integrated and persuaded.
Focusing the mind on something else ( be it a mantra or some such) to 'ignore' the pain (or pleasure) is not the way to Nirvana.Instead the conscious ability to treat pleasure and pain both as 'external' to one's Self and concentrating on the Self itself is - as Ramana Maharshi taught with his silence!
Dear Rakhee Mam, I admire you so much. Right from the age 13 I got attracted to your acting. At that time there was no cable TV or numerous channels and it is only the Doordarshan. Doordarshan started telecasting movies on Friday and Saturday night in which continuously happened to watch yours n Amitabhji paired movies back to back. Those were golden time of my life. I used to concentrate on your dialogues delivery, body language n the dressing style. I learnt the depth of dialogues n it's deep meaning in your movies. Now I every now n the repeatedly keep watching your movie s. Am very fond of you Mam n even Gulzarji lyrics writing. Very much willing to meet you once in the Life Time. Am praying God to provide an opportunity in the Life. Always soar for your glimpse.
Lots of Love n wishing Good health peaceful life Love you love you mam.
if he's going to stick to the H9, then there is no reason for imran khan to relent. Waiting him out is the better option.
Ceteris paribus, beyond being the best in literacy rate, human development index, life expectancy and other indicators, what I find intriguing about the progression of Kerala in parallel to most of the other states of the country, is the fact that when the slogan of 'roti, kapada aur makaan' still continues to be the enticing factor for the political class to bag in votes there, Kerala has advanced much further to making 'Access to Internet' a basic citizen right!
It's strange that people of a place with rampant poverty would reject diversity of people and value addition of resources they themselves are incompetent to utilize। They should learn from their history of mistakes and change the regressive stance।
They can also learn from the British policies of developing Assam, which is the most developed state of the Northeast, because of migrantion policy, who developed the region over decades। The only way they'll escape poverty is by accommodating people who can develop them instead of repeating tribal tendencies। It's the ২১st century!
Incredibly sad and telling story about how deep the reality of a failing state is being hidden
Unfortunately, no one in Delhi looks at the police as a protector of the people. Delhi Police is controlled by the Union government and frankly. is little more than a VIP protection force.
Central Home minister must take responsibility for all these things. Even at this moment of time there are no statement being made.
This kind of hooliganism by so called leaders and law keeper bringing us the feelings of Afghanistan status.
This is like subsidiary alliance policy of Wellesley. The Centre would administer the central forces and (subsidiary) states will have to pay a share of the expenditure.
Debroyji talks sense on matters of Vedas and ancient literature. But on other matters, some of his views are odd and does not make sense. Going by his arguments, The Union government would bring Police from state list to Union List just because Union govt spends money for modernization of police infrastructure and systems.
The main point is we are heading towards incredible Centralisation of almost everything.
This article makes a claim that there is no proof of temple in ayodhya. He seems to base his argument on the content of baburnama, which he cleverly defends as incomplete, unworthy of any conviction and hence invalidates the debate of temple. Unfortunately he underestimates the texts that are available with lawyers which they have got from British libraries that clearly mention the existence of temple.
There are simple solutions to this problem.
The problem to derive solution is there's no desire from netas or babus.
The govt can buy this at cost and transport it to thermal plants. Its simple.
BS by a Khalistani pid by Islamists to destroy Canada and islamise it. He will know it when they come for him and his loved ones like they came for Yezdis.
The trailer looks good but bad acting by Arjun Kapoor.
This is completely wrong, a judge that too a top one at that cannot favor any public policies. This chief justice looking more and more like an autocrat.
To cut a long story short, I feel that this slowdown is partly cyclical. The rest is caused because as Economic actIvity expands, many institutional processes and safeguard mechanisms and laws needed an upgrade.
That has remained same hence growth faced a cyclical phase combined with a tumbling of institutional mechanisms.
By next Sept the cyclical will Peter out. But for India to grow at 9% a fundamental change is required. Protected industries must get competition for them to make globally accepted products.
China had mastered the creation of factors that enable companies to make global products.
That creation of factors is unknown to India.
Yet the BJP/RSS government says no lynching is taking place. Why are there no one charged with this murder. There are videos. This criminal mob must be punished!
No objective references, no statistics, just unverifiable personal anecdotes to support a rant that the author just wanted to get off her chest. And a quora query to establish her point that men can't help but be pigs and women are so much better off by themselves with a career substituted for a meaningful long-term relationship in her life. Bravo! Wish you happiness with your personal choices at 45.
I have read the excerpts only. Definitely I will read the book. I as a mother of two children am proud that I chose Springdales School when we shifted to Delhi way back in 1983. Now I know what a good decision it was as both of them are not only successful in their career, but they have grown up as perfect human beings which is more important. A major part of the credit goes to the way the school groomed my children beyond just bookish education.
This is nonsense. It was done democratically.
One will be surprised if the government comes out with any concrete measures to improve the economic situation. To solve a problem the government must understand the problem. Other than blustering and sweeping the problems under the carpet the government does not seem to know the problems to find solutions. A government which is in 24X7 election mode and with the sole aim of winning elections by creating nationalistic narratives can never find the solutions to the economic problems with the expertise it commands. Art 370 is over, Mandir issue will be solved soon, NRC in Assam will drag on, what issues are there for the Government to sell to the electorate. Sooner than later the public will know the emperor has no clothes. And then the tweeldum tweedledee fall flat or not is the question.--- Prem Kumar
Highly informative article. Kudos to the writer.
The decision of PM Modi on RCEP needs analysis in other angles.
1. At a time when PM is known for uncommon actions and brazenly different solutions, what triggered him to say an emphatic “No”. Is it he has learnt lessons through his game on Demonetization?
2. Is it because of the present slow down in economy and that an accord to flood India market with foreign goods in newer sectors would open pandora’s box.
3. Is it the reduction in voters preference in state assembly elections and the compulsion to win in the assembly polls in States?
4. New divisions in Kashmir which has still not brought normality.
5. Is it to keep US in good humour even at the cost of acrimony with China?
Indeed, it must have been a tough decision to make as it has besides domestic, ramifications on foreign affairs too. Mollifying farmers in India would have been the first and foremost but deep inside lies the inconvenient truth that would be difficult to gulp had the ink in the form of signature of PM spilled on the agreement.
Cool report, astute observations!
I always find the confusion surrounding the question "who is Assamese" mildly annoying. The answer should be obvious since - like Bengalis and Tamils and many others in India - the Assamese identity is based on the Assamese language. So "those who speak Assamese as a first language are Assamese" seems like a definition that is hard to argue against.
Well written review seems to be on similar lines to A Roy's All the lives we never lived
As an 'Aareyan' now living 9000 miles away, feeling nostalgia for the days when the milk of human kindness and public service was flowing freely!
Excellent article by Nadeem. Though he has left out one other crucial event that rocked the Islamic World in 1979.
Also, the one that had the biggest social impact on his own nation.
The Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan which led to the Afghan Jihad, the blowback from which we see and feel to this day. Pakistan became the staging ground for that war between the great powers and the conservatism and radicalism that would later go on to ravage the country came into being then. Of course, having an ultra conservative Zia ul Haq helped (the mullahs) immensely.
It's quite incredible how many organisations were formed or were born during the decade long Afghan Jihad or by jihadis who fought the Soviets. From the Haqqani network to Al Qaeda, they can all be traced back to that one event.
Its good the way government is trying to curb out corruption. If you have nothing to hide then don't worry.
Delightful reading. Notable also is a generosity of spirit to the talents of the fraternity. I'm sure there is some professional competition that occurs within this group also. And it is a tough business to be in.
You don't like it, it's okay to criticize, but telling whole story in detail is not good for a review
Obama made a dignified and merely 'factual' account of the Osama killing, Trump made up his own colorful bravado when he announced Baghdadi's death - that he died like a dog whimpering etc.The elections are an year away and a lot could happen to make Trump whimper!
For the right steps, we need the right government, a more humble one. Congress would have done something about it till now. BJP is still levitating in its post majoritarian mandate toxication.
Maybe he is being released to a juvenile home or back to his family, we can't say. But there is nothing in the article to contradict what the police found that he was a OGW of terrorists. Its really disturbing that such people are being released, they will bring about murder and mayhem in the future and it is also likely that Aftab will turn into a militant himself.
Surely the union territory should have a ordinance or law that permits detention of everybody over 12 years old and if they are below 18 they should have the access to prison schooling.
Interesting piece of information. However, the examples provided in the article present only bankrupted companies fulfilling the Altman-Z criteria which is insufficient to prove its validity. Is the author willing to bet on potential insolvency in hitherto healthy running firms? Or even present a counter-case by showing how "healthy" (perceived) companies have a healthy Altman score?
I doubt any Indian Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, or Christian really cares when an Kashmiri Muslim terror group slaughters some Indian Muslims from another part of the country. Why bother?
If you have nothing to hide why worry.
Dogs deserves to be protected by law ...we should start a petition on that
After Kashmir be very very careful.
Real power in the US is in the hands of a few wealthy donors and oligarchs. If Trump is convicted by the Senate it will not be due to the Republican majority seeing the light but these donors - and not the constituents of the senators - pulling the strings and ordering them to do so. That stage is not yet reached but may yet change a the revelations continue to emerge.
How can a junket for European MPs qualify as internationalization of the issue?
Dubaimachines has done it
Obscure for sure and the visit did not get much attention in international media so the purpose is not clear.
