>>>A very good observation but Modi is not up to it unfortunately.He does not have the education to make his visionary like Nehru

Naser Ahmed

Have you even heard what Fareed Zakaria had told after his interview with Sri Modi? BTW, if you don't know, Fareed is a star Journo of CNN admired world over. And he considered Modi like this after interviewing him -

"Narendra Modi is among the sharpest I have met. I underestimated him. He is very smart, intelligent and focused. He is very driven and has a long term agenda. He wants to be a statesman at the world stage. He is a man who looks to the future and not into the past,"

I am a fan of Zakaria and listen to his GPS regularly for his intelligent insights into complex global issues. If such an intelligent person like Zakaria has an opinion like the above, its better you shake off the Islamic blinkers, the standard accessories  most Muslims wear, and follow some intelligent persons like Zakaria and do some real introspection. No good to squeal like a stuck pig rationalising your backwardness as due to Hindus and the whole world working against you.

What is needed is not 'the idea of India' but 'Team India'.
India is so diversified and has many complexities. A simple
big idea dont work. The problem with power is those who have
that, dont want to delegate it. Unless There is a committed team
to 'nationalists', who work as a team then we will be again to square one.

For 60 years the Kashmiris contnued to back the Abdullahs and they have been jolted to reality ,about the insenstivity of the Abdullahs.

If at all the Kashmiris find themselves in this state of despair its the curse of Abdullahs.

They have epitomised abise of power,Dynastic politics and exploiting the fears of the Kashmiris.

MAHA, NJ

Why, " Looks Like?". He is indeed Pappu of Pakis.

These spoilt brats grow up in a make believe world surrounded by chamchas like Piggy Babu and become delusional that they are invincible and a royalty born to rule.Otherwise what is the qualification of either Pappu or Bilwal? They have no record of any positive contribution except talk and more talk...to fool the gullible..But then there are still guys left in the subcontinent to listen to such idiots..

GHAI Sahib ... I think you are taking too benign a view of the incident. I do not agree with Modi's bonhomie diplomacy with the Chinese. PLA is encroaching India's boundary inch by inch and over the last decades, India has lost hundreds of square miles of her own territory. The MP from Arunachal (Rijju ?) has repeatedly pointed out this ground reality to the Government of the day. But his voice has fallen on deaf ears. The Indian Army has been always stepping backwards on their holding line in the Tibet frontier. Please read these two references : http://www.hindustantimes.com/comment/analysis/hawkish-china-defensive-india/article1-1265782.aspx ... "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has bent over backwards to befriend China. Yet Chinese President Xi Jinping’s India visit has been marred by border incursions, including one that ranks, in terms of the number of intruding troops, as the worst in many years. Modi coined his “inch toward miles” slogan to underscore how India-China collaboration could positively transform Asia. But the slogan more aptly describes the salami-slice strategy of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to use stealthy incursions to incrementally change facts on the ground...." ... and by the former Foreign Secretary : http://www.indiandefencereview.com/modi-xi-agenda-work-for-hindi-chini-buy-buy/ .... In my view we need another Indira Gandhi now to stand firm against China in the world. In the days of Indira Gandhi, China would not have dared to make these sorts of forays in Indian territory. It baffles me, why Modi is going for investment from China to develop India. The Chinese have made more money in international market than India true, but even today India excels over China in the domain of modern technology. Those who are exposed to it are aware of this.

@Gayatri - " If they are so conscious about it why accept roles which objectifies women ?"

You have hit the nail on the head. Most of these actresses have glamorised the 'doormat' roles in bollywood films.

A very good observation but Modi is not up to it unfortunately.He does not have the education to make his visionary like Nehru.He knows and belives only on mantra for all the ills of the nation.Rapid industrialization as he tried in Gujarat though it only kept his state between 9 and 14 place in many ecnomic indicators.It is too late to learn and change and he will only pursue the same path with disastrous consequences for India.He will certainly camouflage under communalism and only the people of India will have to judge better to their destiny.

Let us not forget that the Congress leaders are the icons of independence too and there is nothing wrong in admiring them or remembering them.Congress have overdone it but this is an indsputable fact.For RSS the national leaders need to be belittled and then replaced by RSS and Hindu Mahasabah leaders.One such leader is Savakar suspected to be behind the assasination of Gandhi.Sardar Patel is suspected of helping him escape the noose.He was in obscurity till BJP resurrected him and to insult Gandhi had his photo hung opposite to Gandhi!

In order to create a Hinutva identity the national or congress identity need to be erased first.Then the identity known as- India- identity can be replaced.All such icons that maintain this identity and the history that carries them need to be changed.Hence the change in history books.

Does the Congress leaders know this.Absolutely not.They have the same RSS diehards next to them feeding them with wrong choices and strategies.Besides someone like Sonia from a foreign country has inklink of the socio and political dynamics of India.Then we have the superdud who made the BJP have a cakewalk in the elections.

The story of India is a sad one and will soon end and a new disastrous one will start under the name of Hindu nation!Because all theocracies have failed in history and our neighbor Pakistan is a good living example.

Advani and Joshi were sidelined more due to political reasons. But if there was an element of ageism in it, it should be as vehemently condemned as reserving cabinet posts for feminits.

Both these kinds of hate - misandry and ageism, share the lack of physical beauty. The attractiveness of the human body is percieved due to physical symmetry. But giving this 'body symmetry' precedence, is plain unjust, but omnipotent.

The usual utter loser bravado. Pak's so called leaders since Ayub Khan had been saying this, went to wars with India, got their butt kicked big time and in the process lost half of their own Pakistan. Lot of the usual cheap loser talk with only plenty of hot air from the wrong end.
