Report from KL: There was record turnout. The history (before BJP became a significant player) is that increased turnout always favour UDF, especially when CPIM is in power. The logic is, hardcore CPIM folk will vote 'rain or shine'. The indifferent will move their kappa-meen bellies out to vote if...

Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

Whatever we do militarily to Pak, it should be done before Trump goes away. He hates both India and Pakistan.. but I think he hates them more. So, we are likely to get a little more sympathetic response from him than any one in the deep state.
