If it is Congress govt, I think it would be Chhabildas Mehta. Shaktisinh Gohil has generated a self-goal by creating a nonsensical-controversy. In no way are Ghanchis, the elites. Although, I agree, that like many other such OBC classified jatis, many Modis do well in business, but not the Modi which NaMo belonged to. In Surat for example, Gola-Ghanchi was a slur term.


True. Although in Gujarat they were historically oil producers and sellers. The reason for their backwardness was attributed to issues of cleanliness surrounding them due to toiling to produce oil. Though they earned decent in the Raj era, their conditions deteriorated with advent of new technology and Patel's who were producers of cottonseed and oil bearing crops took their business away by becoming producers of the finished goods. This led to their decline and subsequently being given obc status.

Exactly GD... it is eerie indeed. Almost portentous... considering they come from roughly the same neighbourhood. An old civilisational memory reaching out through close on four millennia to touch its deeply wounded progeny...perhaps saying: Remember.

Absolutely the reason why it should be pointed, and even if one extra vote is generated for BJP, what can one say but AoA?

I also need to stress that I'm not the first to see this similarity...

Singha Sir, I am reminded of the Bhagvad Gita Chapter 4, Verse 7

"Yadaa yadaa hi dharmasya
glaanirbhavati bhaarata.
Abhyutthaanam adharmasya
tadaatmaanM sRRijaamyaham."

Translation :
Whenever and wherever there is decay
of righteousness, O Bharata,
And a rise of unrighteousness
then I manifest Myself!

There is too much adharma going on in Bharatvarsha right now...

^+1 only.

Today is the last day of campaigning in GE 2014. Period. Good. NM can go get some much needed R&R for the next few days.

The game will start 6.30 pm on MOnday. Bring it on I say.

P.S.
Saw snippets of NM's UP speech playing on India TV. NM says that the clown prince has never known poverty. That for him, poverty is tourism only, hence the large camera-clad contingent in tow whenever he goes to 'see' the poor... Only.

The most important thing this election is:

Modi & Shah did not fall for the tricks of PAIDMEDIA.

The PAIDMEDIA used bluff and opinion polls to screw NDA in 2004 and 2009.

The Party cadre and workers became lazy hoping it is all over.

Even though the election schedule was long, BJP worked with a plan in every phase, outwitted the opponents with strategies, kept the killer instinct even in the last stage.

To beat money/muscle/communal power of ITALIANMAFIA and parties like SP,BSP,TMC we needed a tremendous strategy and effort.

Vivek, the only reason and it's a good one to keep linking some of this trash that has high viewership is that some of us may comment and disprove the many false allegations. Many here are very capable of trashing that piece in a few lines. Those type of comments help many better their perspective. It only helps the Dharmic point of view.

I decide monetary policy, govt free to fire me: RBI's Rajan

"I determine the monetary policy. I say what it is. The government can fire me, but the government doesn't set the monetary policy. So, in that sense, am I independent! Well, I am happy to talk to the government. I am happy to listen to the government but ultimately the interest rate that is set is set by me," he said at St. Gallen Symposium in Switzerland.

seriously, you people need to stop. this euphoria, and messianic worshiping is getting alarming. Narendra Modi is one man. not a God. don't make him one!!

this comparing of him with some idol found in IVC remains is silly. more importantly, we are elevating this man to a stature that need not be done. it only increases the chance of his elimination. and it also paints saffron entirely with whatever he does. that is a dangerous risk.

This guy needs to be fired before he creates political storm for the new govt. All stooges of previous regime needs to go to cold storage.

This is a classic case of things getting to one's head. Everyone is dispensable. If RBI governor thinks is the ONE and ONLY one, and trying truth or dare, he must swiftly be granted his wish. I bet he would never try that stupid daring trick in other corporate settings. Retribution for such bravado would be swift and he would put out to pasture in a blink of an eye.
Whether stooge or not of this government, he needs to vacate to give a clean slate for the next formation.

I hope so. It would send a message that India will not wilt against US pressure. Secondly, it will put an end to all the "the first test was a dud" talk.

devesh wrote:seriously, you people need to stop. this euphoria, and messianic worshiping is getting alarming. Narendra Modi is one man. not a God. don't make him one!!.

I agree with this bit. I think people should stop looking up to him as a saviour of sorts. But then again, india has not seen such a powerful leader in a long long time - last I remember, we had the greats like Sri Aurobindo and Bose etc..

Indians have been worshipping the mohandas "slap my other cheek" gandi types for so long, it brings intense happiness and euphoria that the true patriots can still rule india.

Recently SBI announced a shady scheme of tactical sellout of small depositors and small loans to "Reliance Money" supposedly belonging to 'Anil Ambani Group'.

I feel many such shady moves may be in store if this ego-maniac RBI governor is still around to do his master's bidding. It is also proof of India having sold out RBI to the Feds/IMF/WB controlling lobby. It is easier said than done, since one of their mouthpiece has already threated 'downgrade of Indian bonds' if Raghuram Rajan is shown the door.

Abhik,

PM not yet, maybe in 2014 or 2019 - so it's a bit of a fudge.

Devesh,

I'm the last one to go for hero-worshipping... but on the other hand, even if one vote can be secured with a powerful image, I don't see why not... I have been clear about my political leanings... Others, feeling for the current administration, are free to come up with ideas and go for it...

Now it is up to the socmed warriors (and warriers :D) to do the needful...

I doubt very much that RRajan will be let go.

Concerns about Rajan's removal had risen after BJP leaders, including party treasurer Piyush Goyal and senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley, had expressed disquiet over his policy of keeping interest rates high to curb inflation, leading to speculation the governor may be replaced. But Goyal has since changed his stance to indicate Rajan will continue. Former finance minister Yashwant Sinha of BJP has also praised Rajan's achievements since taking charge.


Actually this is a perfect item for GJP.
