It is useless to train the Indian Athlete with foreign Coach and wasting public treasury on her. Instead of a foreign coach appoint Indian Coach with separate trainers for Strength, Nutritionist, Sports Physiotherapist, Sports Medicine Doctor, Sports Psychologist and Sports Lawyer. Their costs will much less than a single foreign coach. Who will never train an Indian Athlete to win a medal in any International or Olympic Athletic Chpionship. More of less avoid her to interact with glamorous Advertising and Media Industries.
It seems that the Governors do not have sufficient and sensible works that justify the perks, salary and honour they enjoy. This worthless constitutional post must be abolished. BTW, I suggest Tathagata Roy to spend his 24 hour leisure time on Chess, Fishing etc., or get engaged in GOW-PALAN, a "holy" job ; at least that won't disturb other sensible minds.
Nostalgia is indeed a big draw. As I was going through all the games mentioned over here, recalled all the childhood memories spent playing these games
The couple laureates " found that pupils who had teachers on short-term contracts had significantly better test results, but that having fewer pupils per permanently employed teacher had no significant effects.”
This phenomenon is prevalent in all fields in some form or other (Gov't jobs, PSU workers /staff, virtually all fields where erring employees enjoy permanency).
The result is gross inefficiency and abysmally low productivity, leading to high cost of production. In contrast the contract laborer works hard and efficiently). In the case of providing work for farmers to increase their income like in NREGA , the contractor of the scheme siphons off 30/40 % of the wages depriving the farmer of his dues, while compromising on the quality/quantum of work. The contractor pays commission to the Gov't auditor who inspects the work , to get a OK certificate for the poor quality work. In the case of development work in the Naxal belt, there is a nexus (contractor, Naxal leaders, Babus/Auditors, Naxal sympathizers ) operating. The contractor develops the road /school of a poor quality, using only part of the contracted amount. After completion he calls for an audit but precisely before the audit the Naxals blow up the structure. The Contractor pleads his helplessness and gets his full amount of contract .
The common cause for all the above is more to do with the attitude of humans executing the schemes, and their political peers / beneficiaries. Can Abijeet help ? I feel NO.
Do one more repo rate cut to the level of 1% or 0.5% and wait to see the growth of world's fast growing economy.
absence of jinghan is felt today
Abhijit's work and knowledge in micro- economics got him the Nobel. He and his wife have been silently working in
their specialized field in some states of India for quite sometime. This should have made him aware of the happenings in Macro-economy since the last 2 decades,
pre & post NDA rule, but strangely he has not ventured to comment or give his advise. Probably he desisted from it, since Macro economy is not his cup of tea. But as an economist he must have observed how the Black Economy was building up, due to monetary frauds ( money laundering, benami assets, cut money culture, commissions in defense deals & selling of national assets, bleeding of aids, NREGA, MSPs and loans to the needy, etc,.) all pushed under the carpet, perpetrated by political greed. Unfortunately Abijit did not caution the nation, in spite of hailing from the land of Swami Vivekananda. Obviously he could not comment on the harsh measures taken after 2014 to demolish the build up of the black economy, which was showing up as fake GDP. Now, consequent to these bold moves, and slow demolition of the black structure, the perpetrators (politicians, business heads, industries , banks, commission agents etc,.) of the now dwindling black economy are legally entangled. Strangely Abijit has no comments about these happenings. Instead he seems to sing the tunes created by these affected perpetrators. But one thing he mentions i.e dwindling economy is correct. However he needs to add BLACK to it
Thuglakian policy misfired.This is the price we gave to pay if ruled by novices and uneducated people.
Whether one speaks for or against a motion in a debate, the speakers are supposed to be within bounds of civility. If one hears the speech of constable Khusboo Chauhan, it appears she crossed the limits of the law of the land, it is surprising that her superiors allowed her to speak with such hate speech and gave her a consolation prize !!!! Probably she represents the mind set of the majority/ minority of the seculriry forces. A pity that people with that kind of mindset, though a minority, are entrustedcwith enforcing the laws of the land.--- Prem Kumar
The Law minister and other NDA ministers have become a laughable stock, with statements showing either stupidity or ignorance on serious issues !
Is it any wonder that the economy is not only in bad shape but getting worse over the last five years !
Let's talk about India:
Sovereign- the strongest prime minister India has seen.
Socialist- the programs announced by the government never just fulfills a particular section but all Indians.
Secular- no religious text automatically becomes the law just because a certain religion says so, it becomes law when passed by the parliament. That's how it should be right?
Democratic- we have proper elections. I don't understand how you claim India is becoming less democratic. This can never be questioned so please come out of your limited mindset.
Republic- Best example article 370 passed by President and approved by the Parliament.
This 'bond signing' pressure, if correct, is very deplorable. No one can be forced to give up his career. Politics is also a career.
Indian genuine industry with the unparalleled FDI and Foreign invested giants
no one can say a damage or a financial slowdown happened physically. It is natural! During the author'' MMS's time
it has been traced all PUCs came into loss and locked out, then it start biting private genuines. The continues 10 years of MMS
had given a ''significant'' change in economy , social , cultural and religious.
The govt ad asks : "Are we going to succumb to militants ? "
Well, how do the natives of Kashmir themselves regard the militants/ "terrorists" ?
Here is a vivid account of the oppressed life in Kashmir given by 'Anonymous', a native Kashmiri writer (scroll.in/ Aug 24) : ". . An ominous time has begun in Kashmir. . . On the morning of Aug 5, Kashmiris woke up in a land they found woven in endless coils of razor wire running across all the roads & lanes they have known. The route map the residents knew had changed overnight as tens of thousands soldiers from other cultures, languages & states told them which directions they could or couldn't move within their imprisoned homeland. Residents felt like rats inside a vast labyrinthine lab from where no exit was available. . .
"The cultural & historical consciousness of Kashmir has received a deep wound that the current political climate in India cannot promise to heal. . .
"Now, with nothing in between the masses & the state that is seen as a marching enemy, many imagine an expanding alliance between the militants & the common people as the only axis with the potential to bend the arc of history towards long-term political justice & survival. . ."
We must not start criticising GST itself for procedural weakness in implementing it. GST implementation has surely taken away potential income of many. It is however clear that cash transaction lobby has ganged up against full success of GST and we all should know who are the patrons of this lobby. Let us not get carried away by some irritated reaction of the minister who is under tremendous unfair pressure on various counts
One cannot understand the criticism about the puja. It has been the tradition in Indian defences services to perform pujas while inducting aircraft, ships into the service. When Tejas was inducted religious ceremonies by a Hindu priest a Mullah and a Christian priest were performed. When a batch of jawana are inducted after completing their training religious cermonies are performed during the parade inducting the jeans, Similar proceduresxare followed in the air gorcexand navy. May be the Rakshta Mantri might not restricted the religious ceremony just to a Hindu puja.
Jio-2 phone is a worst product. Nothing works properly.
They are talking of a cable (that does not exist in this world) that connects Jio-2 phone to the TV. I have verified this with Jio customer care. Yet, the mis-selling continues...
Thanks for this.
After hitting bottom, I was fortunate to find good therapist to help me deal with depression, insomnia and anxiety.
Apart from very helpful therapy sessions, there are a few more things that did help.
- trying new things. In my case I started trekking and some other activity classes. It helped immensely.
- like someone mentioned in comments. Mindful meditation apps like Headspace. Highly recommended
- exercise.. hitting gym for an hour makes so much positive difference
- once in a while watching an episode of Fraiser ;)
Connect to your therapist is important: I met some professionals who were incompetent and capable of more damage than help. Ask your trusted for recommendations (It's ok to ask).
Shri Srinath Raghavan's interpretation of Kashmir's history & Art 370 is illuminating, & it deserves wider media coverage.
It may be added that PM Jawaharlal Nehru took the Kashmir issue to the UN in order to strengthen the influence of this world organisation at a time when when the two powerful military blocs -- NATO & Warsaw Pact -- were trying to dominate the newly emerging, post-colonial 'Third World' countries.
I think the bjp party leaders are very much inspired with Newspeak from the novel 1984...the media is only present to spread propoganda, distort history and facts and manipulate people thoughts...
Anyone familiar with e-commerce should have intuitively figured this out already.
However, I have a way of benefitting from these sales which I have perfected over the last three years, since the sale phenomenon took off. here's the model: First, avoid impulsive buying. If you really plan to buy something, plan at least a couple of weeks ahead of the sale. Track that product for price movement. If it remains stationary for the couple of weeks you've been tracking it, it is likely to be the actual selling price, or your anchor. Psychologically speaking, seeing the price for 14 days sets that to be your reference point and you can avoid the list price illusion.
See if the price drops during the sale. In most cases, it does, but not to a very large extent. But, even a thousand bucks saved is a thousand bucks earned, isn't it?
This yrar, I've bought a Mi 43 inch Pro smart TV set for Rs. 18600 (That is, discounted price of Rs. 20000 minus exchange value of the old set of Rs 1400). I think this was a bargain as this particular set has been selling at Rs. 22000 for the last six months or so.
*The points of view expressed by Commandant Mayank Bhati & Sub-Inspector Ashotosh Rana should have received wide media coverage. But the political climate is such as to suppress saner voices. . .
Many thanks to 'scroll.in' for publishing this piece.
* Especially heart-rending is the story of lynching & human rights violation written by Shri Harsh Mander : "Gandhi's talisman & emigrant worker's lynching in Bihar" (scroll.in/Oct 7). . . It is perplexing that the RSS chief Bhagwat ji has asked us to believe that lynching is "alien to Bharat."
We have more faith in invisible God than in technology, while we pay for the latter. Strange!
* Legal scholar Gautam Bhatia points out (THE HINDU/Oct 7) that the Citizenship Amendment Bill "dramatically seeks to alter the basis of citizenship in India. During the framing of the Indian Constitution, it was agreed that the primary basis for Indian citizenship would be 'jus soli' -- or, citizenship by birth (in the territory of India). . . The Bill, however, will be the first time that religion or ethnicity will be made the basis of citizenship. That would do grave damage to the very idea of India as an inclusive & diverse polity. . ."
* Religion as the basis of citizenship is part of a wider political strategy that promotes Hindutva nationalism, with its emotional overtones.
Why religious nationalism is being canvassed so vigorously by the BJP ?
* "Neo-liberal capitalism has lost its steam. . " The corporate-financial oligarchy in India cannot keep its promise of high GDP growth & its potentially -- "trickle down" -- beneficial effect for all. As the growth slackens, orienting state policy in favour of this oligarchy (Rs 1.45 lakh Cr tax concessions), & yet preventing any revolt from below (ie, from the marginalised farmers, the jobless millions etc) requires a discourse shift : the "ideological prop" to the oligarchy is provided by the BJP's Hindutva nationalism (Prabhat Patnaik/THE HINDU/Oct 3).
RSS is doing nothing but saving the government from criticisms. Words does not matter but the actual problem lies in hooliganism, which is done by the people who is close to ruling party.
Congratulations bro keep it up and keep going God bless you
* This collective action by students & youth is most welcome. Let us hope that many more organisations throughout the country will join this protest movement.
* Last year, a Supreme Court bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra condemned incidents of lynchings & mob violence against Dalits & minority community members as "horrendous acts of mobocracy," & asked the Parliament to pass law establishing lynching as a separate offence (THE HINDU/July 17, 2018).
Can we say that the SC verdict "tarnished the image of the country" ? !
* If the PM had then vocally & emphatically welcomed this verdict, & got the Parliament to pass the law against mob violence, perhaps the subsequent lynchings of Tabriz Ansari & others would have been prevented ; perhaps the wild idea of "sedition" wouldn't have got into the heads of the litigant & the Magistrate in Muzaffarpur
In 1940, Charlie Chaplin produced his hilarious, irreverent & subversive movie "The Great Dictator" -- lampooning Hitler. Now, it is time our "seditious" film-makers also produced a India-specific version of "The Great Dictator" : The one who, while meditating in a Himalayan cave, in front of suitably arranged cameras, probably received his enlightenment -- to lock down a whole state & its entire population.
Is the voice of lakhs of other citizens not important. These 250 so called eminent citizens (do not know the criteria of calling them eminent) do not represent the voice of India. They are those who were pampered by Congress Government. They do not respect democracy. The decision to repeal article 370 was taken by Parliament by majority by both houses.
I don't know why people had divided into parties (BJP/Congress...) or religions (Hindu-muslim...).
What has gone wrong with our mentality?
Why we are unable to come out of these blaming games?
Why we are becoming fools by some illiterate and inhumane people?
In this modern Era when we have whole world info and knowledge in our hands, still we are acting like ignorants.
We are slowly loosing our moral values and dignity.
The society is divided and performing as puppets of some mean, illiterate people,who are misusing society for their benefits.
tehnically Pakistan has leukemia. Having anything else in its blood is counter productive
The truth about India has nicely written here.
People live in fear it is very sad for India.
If Bakhs will not recognize this at an earliest, India will be lost.
A state of insanity is alive in India. Thanks to the rhetoric of the BJP/RSS.
Another strange thing I observed. In the second innings of India, Jadeja was promoted to bat ahead of Kohli. We all know that Kohli can score pretty fast too. The idea could be to create 'facts' to justify Jadeja over Ashwin on any day. Note, the bowling of Jadeja was not that good in the first innings. He bowled well and took wickets too in the second innings of SA. That's a different story. We are glad for that too and we like Jadeja too , respect him too. Anyway, we fans are not biased.
I don't see why you're being so dramatic. Athletics is incredibly hard and the team's posted world-standard numbers on a shoestring budget. How about actually encouraging them?
Some thinking could have greatly minimised the tree cutting in Aarey or even totally avoided the cutting.
1. The use of DC could have avoided relocating pylons and would have minimised tree cutting in Aarey.
Though the tree cutting on this account may not be much but ac needs bigger diameter of tunnels. This means more use of energy, leading to generation of more carbon dioxide. More trees would be necessary to take care of more carbon dioxide .
Large diameter means generation of more muck. The extra muck will generate more carbon dioxide during transport.
This may be a problem during construction, but it is a problem.
2. A station is planned in the Aarey depot. Accomodating this station on depot land means cutting of large number of trees inside Aarey.
It can also need widening of the existing roads inside Aarey for the dispersal of commuter traffic in future to meet the . It will mean further cutting trees in future, which are now not envisaged.
Terminating commercial operation up to the previous station would help.
3. The regeneration is claimed as 30%
The carbon sequestration is based on this figure. This figure is on a high side .
I quote just two points here. For the induction motor to work as generator, it draws 30% current from the source. The amount of power needed on this account needs to be subtracted from the regenerated power fed to the OHE.
Also the regenerated voltage drops from full voltage to zero. The voltage for the meter is captured at pantograph point
So sad state of affairs. Where are our youngsters being led.
This insanity must be stopped. Release all under this draconian law!
Sad to see many of our media channels going the same way as BBC and CNN ... manufacturing FAKE news in the name of upholding nationalistic pride. Pride comes from knowing our achievements are TRUE. A short sense of false pride takes a great fall when we come to know it is FALSE.
A mistake is not a tragedy as long as lessons are taken. But what is tragic is the jingoistic hype and hoopla that was created following the crash. Why did not our Air Chief then say, hold on, let's investigate this before we create an anti Pakistani jumla? THAT must not be repeated in a civilised country.
This case proves that Indian courts will never be able to get cases done in a timely manner when the judges keep allowing frivolous cases be made! The letter in questions only asks the Prime Minister to do something about what is happening in the country!
If they did...we wouldn't be in the economic mess we are in right now. They have no clue about what to do...since they never think beyond making an announcement. They don't think about even the short term repurcussions of their decisions...so long term implications are nowhere in their decision making...We are headed for a crisis...where the Humpty Dumpty is going to have a big fall...and all the PMs men and women cannot put the economy back together...
The common citizens of this country are going to face severe hardships...and we all will have to pay the cost of short-sighted decisions taken by the government
Abrogation of Art 370 is a Himalayan blunder. If the govt had continued to bomb the Pakistani bases but approached Kashmiris with love and persuaded them to choose and design their own action plan to move forward in a timebound manner , the people would have responded positively. Pakistan would have had no case then.
In 1947, Gandhi persuaded a Muslim majority to accede to India with the promise of humanity and democracy. Having renounced Gandhi and having followed Modi, India is on the wire now. This govt can neither handle economy nor democracy.
This is another bad and dangerous policy decision by BJP govt. Can't expect anything better from them. It is sad to see judiciary acting like this as well. Really a sad time for the Inclusive Indian dream that people saw and the world look up to.
The saddest and most shameful part is that Indians at large have shown no solidarity with the Indian citizens of Jammu and Kashmir over the loss of those civil rights and facilities that all other Indians enjoy. Also, the economic loss to the people is enormous.
The BJP government has entered a chakravyuha.
I think the reviewer watched this movie with the intent to find holes in the plot. Who cares whether the British patiently waited till the Queen finished the narration or not. Did the reviewer find the movie entertaining or not? When this review cannot answer this basic question then what did the purpose of the review at all? And if the reviewer cannot write one proper review then he/she doesn't have the capability to critique a director who has spearheaded a movie worth N crores.
Peace is attained by good peace loving Governments that create good, peaceful, friendly relations with neighbouring countries. And not creating oppression in the state. BJP government can never create peaceful conditions by oppression against Kashmiris and threats to the neighbour country.
Before the selection of Wridhiman saha, everyone thought Rishabh pant was the idle placement for all three formats. But when he failed to reach the expectations, criticism poured in from all corners. As Pant is still in learning mode, he should be rested from test cricket and prepare for the one day and T20 formats. As Test cricket is all about consistency and temparement, one should look for
I request all respectful world leaders this is very serious issue. Advice pakistan, pakistan going in wrong route and they always disturbing peaceful life of Kashmiris. Kashmir is scared about terrorists from pakistan. Actually what they want and there is no rights to involve Kashmir issue. At the time of India & pakistan partition the king of kashmir Hari Singh agreed to merge entire Kashmir with India. There is nothing wrong with India. Pakistan purposefully playing religious based politics, This is entirely against to international community. An across India some millions of Muslim brothers & sisters living safely & friendly compare to Pakistan. This is right time pakistan have to realize & concentrate on development and also need to give assurance to peaceful life to every pakistan brothers & sisters.
Missing in this analysis is the organic & complex relationship between authoritarian politics on the one hand, & the free-floating, speculative finance capital & the national/regional capital on the other.
Massive movements of speculative finance capital across countries, barely related to actual production, are triggering conflicts ("regime change", for ex) & also vast movements of migrants & workers in search of greener pastures.
Elitist, authoritarian politics drawing upon racist sentiments & on religious, linguistic & ethnic nationalisms, has emerged as a means to defend the interests of global capital & at the same time 'manage' migrant workers, refugees & "infiltrators."
The ruling political classes in developing countries like India are deploying the power of the nation-state to create a single nationwide market for the national bourgeoisie (in India, for ex, by colonising Kashmir, Nagaland).
The contradiction here is that, while the national bourgeoisie resists the domination of global capital in the national market, its interests simultaneously merge with the global finance capital.
An international movement/organisation of migrants & workers in defence of universal rights to work, wages, citizenship & dignity is the need of the hour.
Politics of "terror" is the camouflage under which the politics of tyranny/authoritarianism is flourishing.
The government's ban has made it hard for me to not go back to smoking. I can no longer buy eliquids from local vendors as they've shut their businesses due to the threat of criminal prosecution. When my ENDS device finally stops working, I'll have no way of finding replacements short of asking relatives who live overseas to procure them for me. Gums and patches have not worked for me in the past despite investing considerable amounts of money into them. Those supporting this ban must consider the very real human cost of their decision.
Public health officials, like the authors, regularly cite the threat to children - I wish someone would tell me how they plan on stopping these children from buying cigarettes once the ENDS devices are no longer available. The regulations cited in this article are not a solution - anyone who has ever bought a cigarette will tell you that they exist only on paper. As a child who smoked, I can attest to the fact that children regularly smoke unimpeded by such laws and, if even a fraction of these children somehow possess the finances required to purchase an ENDS device (in which case their parents really do have some questions to answer), they'd be better of vaping than smoking.
The primary victims of this decision are the lakhs of former smokers who've quit using ecigarettes and are still dependent on nicotine delivery through these devices. Less harm may not be harmless but it sure is better than pushing these lakhs back into smoking.
One fact check,according to your data only Pakistan team of 1980s also has a better W/L ratio in home tests than India which is around 8.500 so please include that in your statement.
Hindus in India are a confused lot. They have no idea that differentiate between Hindu and Hindutwa. Today in India opposing political party leaders are most confused and look like pig-mys. There is not a iota of a persons who would speak for civil society. The most unfortunate part of this regime is that it will make all efforts through celebrations to commemorate the 150 th Birth anniversary of Mahatma who was physically assassinated by the same group of Hindutwa and Gandhi lived for Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Dalit unity and laid down his life to the bullets of frenzies of Hindutwa who even today are worshiping the killer. Thanks for the people in America who stand for freedom, democracy and human rights in India.
I think Tamil talaivas need to believe and experience players should step up and should show y the team pick them in there side they have got good team with half of the team inexperience too,the experience players should train the new,and if they lead from front they can avoid wooden spoon
-shashi from Bangaluru.
How many Indians really cared when the Obama's visited India? Or how many cared when Justin Trudeau visited India?
The point is diplomacy works in corridors of power and common people hardly notice it ever making an instant impact. Take a walk on Indian streets asking people things about international treaties and foreign affairs, 8/10 would not know much.
Well if the article really wants to demean an Indian PM representing Indians abroad, go ahead, kudos.
Every word of IK highlights the fact that Pakistan may be in debt may torture the minorities within its territory may other countries torture Muslims in bigger scale he will only see the Kashmir other things are of no importance to him. He himself is radicalized.
Present govt tried the best to frame him in false charges but his honesty and sinceority toward work prove them wrong and judiciary and honest people still alive.
Atleast they have pride with themselves unlike Indian press
To say no-one offered them water seems exaggerated. But, doesn't matter, this is really sad and this is the reality. I was hoping to see so mamy commets here, but I'm the first one. Makes me think of people would even care to read this. We are headed for doom.
What can India expect?? Open the sports page and 3 out of 4 pages contain nothing but cricket. So look for achievements in the circus. if we underachieve in tests there is always a victory in some one day match. If not may be we will win a T20.
But don't look at real sports for glory.
I am a Kashmiri Pandit and have had to leave the valley, with my house, cattle and all belongings, including the standing crop, given to my neighbours to take care of. There is much written about the atrocities faced by Kashmiri Pandits.....and by God there were many.
In the last 30 years or so, i have moved frmo place to place and by and large prospered, with my children getting educated in better schools, getting a world-view instead of having a 'koop-manduk' outlook, and most importantly, did not have to look behind me all the time. Our physical torture lasted a couple of year, at max. We had a voice outside the state.
But when i look back at what those left behind, primarily the Muslims, have faced in these 30 odd years....i think our misfortune was nowhere close to what they have faced...being in a constant state of war, the stress of being caught in the crossfire or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time....i think our pain and misery, short-lived as it was in physical terms, got diluted with time, in a calmer environment.
but will anybody believe me?
A Balanced Report. On a very unfortunate event, whereby a clear and present danger to the world at large, in the form of a facist PM of India, a low life Narindra Modi, is mollycoddled if you will, by the leader of a Superpower, Donald Trump. For a very narrow object (in the context of global peace and a humanitarian outlook and approach) of pursuit of a relatively insignificant political gain (that of getting the Indian immigrants vote); and the more significant aspect of having an eye on the billion plus populated country of the world as a being a lucrative market. Irrespective of Modi’s cruel an brutal acts and actions against the Kashmiris specifically, and endangering World peace in general. Sad and regretful, the US’s approach. Considering it’s hitherto record of always standing up for justice, peace and the downtrodden and the marginalised.
What type of comment you want? Indian Economy collapsed due to bjp.
India also participates in the Lusophony Games, Francophonie Games & the Maccabiah Games.
I don't believe participating in a sporting event should mean anything politically. However, I do agree that the reason for existence of such games may be sordid, but it's a past we cannot forget or forgive.
Let's leave the sporting spirit alone and allow our athletes to make the best use of the opportunities. We aren't colonised by anyone now, so it shouldn't even matter.
In 2003, Lalit Mansingh the then Ambassador of India to the United States and a former Foreign Minister referred to Elvis Presley as follows. And I quote "" It would difficult to imagine two more dissimilar personalities than Elvis Presley and Mahatma Gandhi. And yet the words of Elvis Presley are strangely close to Gandhi's thinking when he said that he dreamt of an India where he would be able to wipe the last tears of the last child, words reminiscent to what Elvis once said and I quote "I figure all any kid needs is hope and the feeling that he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feeling, I would believe I had contributed something to the world" Unquote President Trump was right on target when he likened the current Prime Minister's charisma to that of Elvis. That those words by the Ambassador immedtaey followed his attending an inauguration ceremony for the exhibit at the National Civil Rights Museum installed for the 35th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's death, is a testament to the admiration felt for an American singer who touched the lives of people worldwide.
That 'Economy is sliding down', 'Job Market is dull' are all just hypes created by the Opposition to criticize the Modi Government.
Prices of Essential Commodities are well within the reach of the common man & no body bothers if other non-essential & luxurious items shoot up.
Similarly Modi Government has opened many avenues for livelihood.
It is only those who look for 9-5 table job & a salary at the month end without any accountability that face Jobless situation.
Well, with Trump's famed inconsistency, incoherence, ego, and general lack of regard for anything in particular except himself, this may not play out well for India even if trump does win. It would take a peculiar mix of ego and lack of basic understanding to trust Trump.
All said and done , it's quite likely, such, as are eyeballs grabbers shall ever cotton on to the fact that the best, most efficacious delegitimization is rooted in, considered disregard, of even the existence of your adversary.
Honestly, even when agreeing with what's being said, it's hard to look past the overacting and plagiarism and how the girl is being used by adults offscreen. Personally makes me hate it regardless of whats being said.
We live in a flawed democracy. Democracy starts and ends at the polling booth.
The National security Advisor, Officers and the best of advisors and experts are used before taking surgical strikes. One such expert had written an article about the main reason this was done. It was a statement that India is moving away from a crybaby image to the one that will shaft the culprits. Actual kills during the strike is just a bonus. Those who are debating in comments including me and the writer of the article has no clue about warcraft. What we see is tip of the iceberg. Even the statement of Army chief has some intention behind it. Most likely it is more sinister for Pakistan than me and I could expect.
Well many aren’t withholding knowledge anymore, so to speak. They are in fact migrating elsewhere away from Hindu land and helping that place prosper, having lost faith in their own land’s system. They may say they bring home something but knowledge is not one of the many things.
The Indian Institute of Architects has a point - foreign firms to design a new building to replace one because it was built by foreigners? Rather moots the point.
The video clip and non partisan witnesses are there. No amount of slandering propaganda can alter reality. Jadavpur was , is, and will remain the gateway for the best to go abroad for studies and acclamation. It is ridiculous to try and denigrate. The spit and the mud gets thrown back , from the response from academia in India and abroad .
Still it is not late to control terrorists. You may blame US for taking Pakistan for ride but ask your Army and political leadership how much they milked US under this pretext and caused enormous loss to Indian economy and people and still continuing under misplaced Islamic theory of Ghazwa-e-Hind, so called last unfinished task? Jaisa bowoge vaisa hi katoge!
What do we expect from a totally compromised top order.
PM Modi must not have taken position with one of the political parties contesting US Presidential election, And put India in awkward position with the US voters. Racial and hate speeches of Trump, not condemning killing of Indian working with Companies in US, delisting India from the US preferred trade partner. increasing tariff on Indian goods to America, making visa difficult for students and families of those working in US, US pulling out of Paris agreement on environment etc. Does Modi endorses all that and more, just to get Trump on his side for the situation that he has brought about in Kashmir?
