One, because it is the Indian perspective that this blog shows while discussing and talking of Hinduism. US, because it is the most important country in the world. And Pakistan because it is the nation that had had and will have far reaching consequences for the region and the world.This year, I wanted to use this video … [Read more...]

What is Rashtra Dharma (or Duty to your Nation)? Is it sucking up to the dynasties? Or is it Unity, integrity, security and prosperity of your mother-land?Chanakya deals with these questions very effectively in this one interaction. Whatever he says is still relevant... just replace Nand-vansh with Gandhi dynasty. Same thing. And honestly, this is the issue I have with Dr. Manmohan Singh. Nothing has put him down in my eyes more than how he has collaborated with the plunderers and loote … [Read more...]
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act is the flagship rural employment program of Dr. Manmohan Singh's Congress Government. It is also the greatest mechanism created in India to suck greatest amounts of money since British created their discriminatory laws. It involves a $33 billion investment every year!

Interesting... someone is spying on BJP leaders and the corporate leaders and this same guy was already in the dock for spying on Amar Singh! So, who promised to "save" this guy from the law when arrested for the Amar Singh case? The suspicion is obviously towards the Congress leaders. The question is will we ever know?

Salman Khurshid, we know Italian is running the Indian Govt, but is Italy DIRECTING our executive now??
When BJP has put pressure on the Government, Salman Khurshid - the schizophrenic moron has this to say, and its at once the most bizarre as well as bewildering argument. "There is no such thing. It's pro-active. There is such a thing as lawful. Whatever has to be done by law has to be done. I don't think that we should do anything that is done to please the opposition or because somebody puts pressure on us. What is lawfully required and lawfully justified is what will be done, what has been … [Read more...]
Shameless Bias of Media: Rahul’s Melodramatic & Scripted Speech vs Modi’s Visionary yet Grounded Call to Youth
To know the bias and the shallowness of the mainstream media, this is a good comparison. Rahul Gandhi is a nincompoop with a silver spoon and his speech that day - where he brought up the "Power is Poison" statement - was scripted and made up. It was easy to know.On the other hand, Modi spoke from his own experience and work he has done.Who is a leader and who is not is pretty obvious when you see their track record.For these ivory tower journos - Sagarika's tweet is pretty telling. She … [Read more...]
