Both cricket and Elections are unprdictable.
While Indian cricket team relay on one or two players
mostly in an innings, the same pattern is followed in
elections. Like Dhoni, Amit Shaw has also ducked
after a better performance earlier. While you phase out
old players, you need nurture the younger ones to grow.

Alas, that is not happenning!!!

TODAY THE TIBETAINS ARE IN MINORITY AND DEPEND UPON MAIN LAND FOR ECONOMY.China has crushed the Tibetian Revolt without any bloodshed .

''''Reading the tea leaves: Why China troops won't stay out of Ladakh

Why would China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops scuttle a crucial maiden visit to an important neighbouring country like India by their supreme commander and Chinese President Xi Jinping by launching an incursion in Chumar in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ladakh region on the eve of Xi’s trip?

Because that is exactly what they did.

They roiled the tranquil Sino-Indian waters further by beefing up their numerical strength in Chumar hours before Xi’s formal delegation-level talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

AFP
Hours after the Xi-Modi talks, the PLA troops backtracked and told their Indian army interlocutors that they were going back to their original positions.

Now that Xi has left Indian shores, 35 PLA troops have staged a comeback in Chumar. So, what is happening? What is China trying to communicate to India through this flip-flop in Chumar?

Perhaps an even more important question: Is the PLA is acting on its own, working independently of the Chinese government controlled by the monolith Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?

But there is method behind the apparent Chinese madness! But has to read the Chinese tea leaves to decipher it.

China is known for pushing the envelope and pin-pricking its neighbours with whom it has boundary disputes – and China’s strike rate of using boundary dispute politics in its engagements with such neighbours is one of the highest in the world.


Now coming back to the question asked upfront: whether the PLA is working independently of Chinese government and the CCP in context of the PLA launching high-profile incursions into India at the time of important to-and-fro top-level visits in India-China bilateral relations.

The answer is a big ‘no’. The PLA is not the ISI of Pakistan. It works within the parameters set by the Chinese government.

So when the PLA launches such big-ticket incursions into India at a time when the two nations are engaged at highest political levels, it should be seen as a part of a bigger and more subtle design.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is engaging with China the way an Indian premier should do. He can’t be blamed if Chinese troops land up deep inside Indian territory even while he was engaging in serious talks with visiting top leaders of China; just as former prime minister Manmohan Singh or his predecessors cannot be blamed for the same thing.

Through its military incursions in Chumar and Demchok in Ladakh, China is telling ---'

Putting a lady, who has no clue about commerce, incharge of the Department is exmplifies a system that has lost focus on the economy and shifted it to gender-appeasement and religionist politics.

The ONLY way to grow, is encourage entrepreneurship in manufacturing. But this can never happen in the crony capitalist culture that is thrives in a system of corruption, devoid of a judicial system.

For the share of manufacturing in GDP to rise from 16 to 25 per cent, many reforms will be required. Most notably, in the power sector. Cutting down T & D losses, as high as forty to fifty per cent in some states, agriculture paying close to actual cost for power, cleaning up the finances of the SEBs / discoms. Related reforms in coal, gas pricing. The economy has become a tangle, like that famous banyan tree in Calcutta where it is not possible to identify which is the principal trunk.

You are absolutely on the spot. We sure owe gratitude to the then rulers for amputating what otherwise would have been a festering wound for ever, by dividing India and settling the issue even if some left overs of partition are still troubling us. Kashmir is one such.

Even this is because whichever part of Indian subcontinent  did not integrate into British India for a direct rule, that region has remained relatively backward and continues to pose problems. Telangana is another example. 

Except for Patel , the prudent among the impractical idealists, neither Nehru nor Gandhi I would give credit for the integration of this nation.

It was only last month that Mr Modi, talked of 10 year moratorium on communal and caste violence in his independence speech from Red Fort. Even if one limits oneself to Gujarat — his home state — one can gather the great hiatus between what he says and what the footsoldiers of the Hindutva brigade are doing on the ground. There are reports that Gujarat has of late witnessed many communal flareups with the change of power at the center.

Hotelier Mustafa Patel from Gujarat- owner of Jyoti Hotel – is a very sad these days.

His famous hotel- which used to lie on Viramgam highway, merely ninety minute drive from Ahmedabad, is now closed. Anyone who has traveled on that road would vouch about its quality preparations, all the employees who worked with him are in search of another job. Undoubtedly, for Mr. Mustafa it was a very painful decision to close it, but there was no other option.
It is being alleged that he was receiving threats from anti-social elements — many of whom had covert links with the ruling dispensation in the state — and despite court orders police refused to provide him protection. The only option for him was to get ready to face bullets or concede to their demand. He preferred the latter option, perhaps with a view that it will at least help save few innocent’s blood.His petition to the National Commission on Minorities makes it clear how the issue unfolded and how the police reacted to the developments.

Muslim businesses like Jyoti Hotel, even if their name are safely secular, are being driven out of Gujarat. Mustafa Patel’s case is not an exception.

God makes all of us the same and gives us equal amount of intelligence before he sends us in this world. But he has created this world a tough place to survive. History shows that Hindus have been naïve politically throughout the ages to trust their natural enemies and hence India has been conquered by marauding hordes from outside. This was so with Prithiraj and in recent times with Nehru's policy towards China. One of the glaring political shortcomings of us Hindus is that we take our political leaders at their face value instead of scrutinizing the ground realities. My harsh language in my post was to alert all in this regard to check what is going on with Modi's China bonhomie with reference to your statement as unsubstantiated. Rest assured that there was no intention of my part to hit you personally.

Anwaar, while questioning the boldness of Modi, why don't you question some Muslims whose actions put the whole community on the defensive. When every other community is prospering, it is the Muslims lagging behind. But why blame Modi and Indians for that. Even in USA,and Canada, Muslims are far behind than Hindus and Sikhs.

Tarnish his image as staunch Hindu nationalist?  Didn't everybody hear that everywhere in India even the school children sing, "Ishwar, Allah Tero Naam... Sab Ko Sanmati De Bhagwan"? This is staunch Hindu Nationalist's identity.

> "..... a new mosque where gay people are welcome, Christians too, and women are treated equally to men opened peacefully in Cape Town today despite threats of violence."

A bold and welcome step.

No big deal....just like the Indian Hindus,just like the Indian Sikhs, just like the Indian Christians, the Indian Buddhists the Indian Jains, the Indian Parsis, the Indian animistes, the Indian agnostics, the Indian atheists and hopefully every other Indian group......... There is a subtle way of stigmatization of Muslims used by Muslim bashers in the world Media and by other racists ... pretending to defend the Muslims by saying that they are not the same as those belonging to terrorist groups ...... Why on earth should people belonging to a faith be compared to criminals....even if they belong to that faith. This type of shortcut stigmatization should stop.
