Re: ISRO and Space News Discussions 2019

5th and final orbital lunar maneuver occurred today. Another reporting day with separation it seems of Vikram lander from Chandrayaan 2..... Barely another week before vikram touches down on the lunar service. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190902/52d5bd37d1eab31ad315ade38a4c087b.jpg Sent from m...

I think it is important that we document historical documentaries that may have relation to Indian political or historical context. Some discussion I feel will...

Re: Nepal and Himalayan News and Discussion 2019

Nothing overtly stimulating from Nepal at least with regard to India and this article. Really from the Nepali foreign minister who was giving the interview to the Himalayan times. From my read, Nepal is still playing a very tight rope and equally equal approach. While they acknowledge India's positi...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

For all the good PR work that the Congress party probably spends on instantly gets nullified by their commander-in-chief Rahul Gandhi.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

That is some interesting trivia Kjo, actually had to look it up. Apparently there is no limit to how many terms of prime minister can serve as long as he keeps winning the elections. That means that Modi is only really limited by his own health as well as energy. Definitely three terms are on the ca...

Really has been a terrible year for those Giants for the BJP. Manohar Parrikar, Sushma Swaraj and now Arun Jaitley. All of them will be sorely missed. What I can’t understand is how young both Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley passed at. Both of them were 67 and 66. Really so young to be passing away. ...

I actually visited this town in Tamil Nadu which is famous for the Nataraja temple. One of the few temples I believe where Nataraja ...
