Expanding Gravitas of Modi’s India Story!

PM Modi has done it again and again in the last 12 months. With a great vision and great oratory, he enthralls audiences across the globe (as he did across India to get BJP a landslide victory in Lok Sabha Polls). And the net take aways from all these have been fantastic for India. In a globalized world, the projection of a positive India story with gravitas has started paying good dividends. In SAARC region

Delhi should know who is against corruption. AAP or Central Govt

Do you know that within 1 month of an honest government of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi, more than 1.25 lakh calls came on the anti-corruption helpline 1031? Do you know that Delhi police comes under the central Modi government while the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) comes under Delhi AAP government? Do you know that when Delhi’s AAP govt asked people to video record any corruption case they face, Delhi police issued a circular banning

अच्छी सरकार, अच्छा विपक्ष, अच्छे दिन

कुछ सवाल दोहराये नहीं जाते और कुछ सवालों के जवाब बार-बार बताये नहीं जाते। केंद्र सरकार के एक साल पूरा होने पर ऐसा ही एक सवाल उछाला जा रहा है– क्या सचमुच अच्छे दिन आ गये हैं? सवाल कुछ ऐसा है, जैसे राह चलते किसी आदमी से कोई पूछे—क्या आप कहीं जा रहे हैं? मोदी सरकार के बने अभी बारह महीने ही तो गुजरे हैं, लेकिन इतने कम वक्त में क्या-क्या नहीं हो गया। मौसम

The curious case of giving up your LPG subsidy

The recent talk by our honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, asking people who can manage to give up their LPG subsidy left me flummoxed. I thought asking the common man to leave subsidies and show austerity should come only after the leaders show them their way. Aren’t there few things that, as people’s representatives, they should give up too. To name a few facilities that these leaders can forego: 1) Staying in posh bungalows

Say NO to Kanya Poojan

Shubh Navratri Readers! I am glad that I managed to draw your attention to this post, and that is precisely what the role of the misleading header was. Isn’t is true that these days we have been so exposed to and drawn towards negative and controversial news posts on the web that clicking on them has become a subconscious part of our daily routine? Aren’t we all in some way or the other feeding on

Of India, and changing India

All of us, once at least would have asked this question: “What will happen to this country!” (“kya hoga iss desh ka!”)… I have asked this question several times to myself and now I helplessly admit that I have concluded that “iss desh ka kuch nahin ho sakta!”. India is going to remain India. By this I mean the attitude of the people and not the other dynamics – like usage of mobile phone for

The Return of the Commoners, The return of AAP

Today, exactly 1 year after he resigned because he could not get the Delhi Janlokpal Bill tabled in the Delhi assembly, Arvind Kejriwal would take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi.  When he resigned, I knew that few would accept the reasons he said, and AAP would be facing tough times ahead. It turned out that I was right and the next one-year was torturous and testing for both Arvind Kejriwals and AAPians. Very

The Story of AAP I Know

The Beginning: I have been associated with AAP and its volunteers since the last 1 year. I was one of the latecomers who joined the movement after initial surge in last Delhi Assembly Elections. I was never interested in politics before AAP came into real existence. I joined the AAP Official Group on December 18th 2013, made my first donation to AAP on January 1st 2014. As I interacted with more AAP people, I came

“Modi” Ji Nai Dilli main apka swagat hai, Clear Learnings

After the mammoth victory in Delhi, one thing is coming to a clear. That the NaMo juggernaut is close to halt now and there is a need for something special to keep the show running for the BJP government. Once Delhi chooses Arvind unanimously, the city and through them, the nation will tell the Prime Minister that in this changing country, a country which is now developing in intelligence and information gathering, where the number of
