Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Aren't these people the first casualties in any 'direct action day' ? I don't quite see how if these very people live in a house and have toilets will save them during 'direct action day'. Please guys "direct action day" is a symptom and not the real driver. Direct action was a culmination...

Re: West Bengal - news and strategy thread

WB police behaves like a castrated TMC lapdog.The state also has a cadre of goons. The BJP should promise "some" of these lukkhas jobs and training as regular cops to bring law and order to the state rather than subvert it. Come to think of it the police law and order I India is woefully u...

Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Hindu was originally a racial / ethnic term that became mainstream.

Does PM Modi have the beginnings of a new narrative, that can be an aspirational target for all Indians?
