SuSwamy is also not some spry youngster. I just hope he doesn't turn a Shourie. :roll:

I have nothing to say on the topic of RRMR, but I will say this : There were a few thousand sati deaths in some areas of the country, but the British-caused famines killed literally crores of Indians. But now the impression is, the British were enlightened rulers who saved the evil heathen Hindoos from sati.

We need strong historians to write correct history from a true Indian perspective.

Anyhoo this is off-topic and you'll hear no more from me.

In other news, Mamata Didi has cancelled her attendance at Modiji's swearing-in ceremony tomorrow because Modiji invited the families of BJP karyakartas killed in Bengal to the ceremony.

While I am happy with the invite to families of the slain karyakarta from Bengal, wouldn't it have been more prudent to invite the families of karyakarta from other parts of the country that too lost their lives in the service of the party in these elections?

not a ministry but he should be recognized in some way for the efforts that he has singlehandedly put in to corner many venomous political snakes and dynastic charlatans.


If that small thing is not done, he will turn and it will happen sooner rather than later.

this guy usually ticks like a swiss watch on normal days but he can also tick like a time bomb, if pushed to the wall.

better to have him in your tent pissing out rather than outside pissing in :mrgreen:

they already have 6500 guests, not to mention the drivers, assistants, chaprasis and other hangers on who will mysteriously turn up to "help" whenever there is a feast.

it is injudicious to mix these strata of society in the same place.

I have been to functions like this where there is a mad rush for the food and to grab "goodies" and with the inevitable jostlings and scrambling, an explosive situation is easily created leading to unwanted and very unpleasant consequences.

2014 ceremony was not a good showcase in terms of Program Management and experience of people who attended it; there were few articles in that regard - not able to get hands on links

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/ind ... 501208.cms
Half of BJP’s additional MPs from SC/ST constituencies
An analysis of the reserved seats shows that the party has won 77 of 131 such constituencies this time as compared to 67 in 2014. This is significant in view of the dominant narrative about the ruling party’s estrangement from Dalits and tribals. BJP has, in fact, increased its tally in both SC and ST seats while Congress — the second top claimant of reserved constituencies — lost three such seats.

Despite marginally increasing its overall Lok Sabha tally from 44 to 52, Congress saw a dent in reserved constituencies where it got only nine seats this year as compared to 12 in 2014.

SC did not quash the Home Ministry notice. All that it did was quashing PIL quoting photocopies of British Company House documents to say that it cannot take cognisance of purported photocopies of documents whose provenance it has no means of verifying authenticity to demand investigations by the Centre. If there indeed is a Home Ministry notice let us see what Rahul Gandhi response is.

TMC Leaders joining BJP are highly opportunistic & their hands are deeply drenched with blood of our Karyakartas. At least For the respect of our fallen brothers their entry to BJP shouldnt be cheered



@squintneon

We don't need person like Manirul Islam who has FIR on his head for murder & said he crushed 3 brothers under his feet after state power got his name omitted from FIR

It's the NSA that spends sleepless nights and days while swamykins take pot shots.

303 Is Not An Emphatic Answer, It Is A Profound Question
https://swarajyamag.com/politics/303-is ... d-question
Indians have posed a series of questions to Modi, the kind of questions that doting but expectant parents pose to their prodigious children.

This victory reminds me of a particular interaction I had with the director of the consulting arm of my erstwhile workplace whom I used to report to.

My company, as part of performance appraisals, used to rate people in four categories — ‘outstanding’, ‘exceeds expectations’, ‘meets expectations’, and ‘needs improvement’.

I had notched up the ‘exceeds expectations’ rating for the second successive time and was quite chuffed about it. Well, who wouldn’t be, especially if it was just in the third year of your career and you were possibly looking at a good salary hike because of it?

However, this particular director decided to have a sobering, but in a way, inspiring conversation with me.

He said, “So you have exceeded expectations yet again?”. “Yes”, I replied.

“Do you realise the meaning of this?”, he asked. I had the good sense to stay silent then.

He dropped what was a truth bomb on a 24–25-year-old. “The meaning of this is, if you exceed expectations in the next year, you are still in the ‘meets expectations’ category because you were anyway expected to exceed expectations.”

I realised that what I had shown I could do and my company’s appreciation for what I could do, was not an answer but a question, a challenge posed to me. “Show us what more you can do” — it said.

A similar conversation has happened between the electorate and Modi.

“Here’s my work. I made India the fastest builder of highways in the world, I build 1.5 crore afforadable homes, I built 10 crore toilets and took the sanitation coverage to almost 100 per cent, I electrified almost every home, I showed the guts to do a Balakot….”, and so on, Modi presented his progress card to the people.

“We like what you did and for that, here, take 272 so that you can continue to do your good work. But wait, don’t go and start working as yet! We know what you can do. However, here are 31 more seats for you. It makes it 303, something we haven’t given anyone for 3 decades. Show us what more you can do that we did not imagine you could!”, said the people to Modi.

Modi, the astute politician, I am sure knows that this emphatic victory is not an incremental win but an electoral revolution of sorts. To win 303 in the times of a fragmented polity much unlike the times in which the Congress used to notch up such numbers is huge. It is not a conditional approval but a blank cheque of sorts. “Write the amount you want, do whatever you want with it but ensure you do something that can be remembered for centuries”, the people are saying.
...
...
...
But what is it that Modi will do as a reply to this massive mandate to create a lasting legacy? That is the question Modi will answer over the next five years. Interesting times ahead.

One more "result" of 2019 General Election...

https://swarajyamag.com/insta/robert-va ... -treatment

During a hearing before a special CBI court in Delhi today ( 29 May), Robert Vadra claimed that he needed to fly to London for diagnosis and treatment after having developed a tumour in his large intestine, reports India Today. :cry: :(( :mrgreen:

Vadra submitted a medical certificate as proof of the same and appealed for his passport to be returned to him. The court has reserved its order on the issue for 3 June.

Vadra’s counsel K T S Tulsi contended that his client has been fully willing to cooperate in the Enforcement Directorate’s investigation, and it cannot be argued that he would flee. :roll:

The prosecution advocate rejected these contentions and asked that if the certificate had been issued on 13 May, as the date on it mentioned, why hadn’t it been produced before the court earlier.

Further, the lawyer questioned, "Why does the medical certificate say he will take further opinion from London? He can take it from anywhere else. It's not like treatment is not available in India. Why is the medical certificate specifying where he can get the second opinion from?"

And I can say for certain that there are better and experienced GI surgeons in India than the UK !! All he needs for a second opinion are investigation reports that can be sent by email. Who is he trying to fool? All the cases against him are stacked up !!
