Re: Cricket

A couple of great performances all around today. Great to see that Ashwin is back into the team and he made his presence felt in the first innings by really picking up seven wickets. Thereafter the Hitman Ro ‘hit’ back with two centuries in dominating style. Really making his impression felt especia...

Re: Nepal and Himalayan News and Discussion 2019

The New York Times has yet again published an article regarding the embankments on the Indian side that supposedly holds floodwaters back into Nepal which has created a lot of strife among border communities in Nepal. However, watching the news today one can clearly see that these embankments have r...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

A lot of news being made with regard to Modi in the United States especially after the Howdy Modi event. It seems that even Trump has made another U-turn with regard to saying that Modi can handle any kind of discussion with Pakistan and that essentially I would guess mediation is not needed unless ...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

Watched a large chunk of the Howdy Modi event today in Houston. What I can say is that it already seems to be success. Quite a lot of US representatives were present as well as other dignitaries such as the mayor of Houston. Surprising to see the scale of everything that was created. Even POTUS Trum...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

Modi is back in the US. Looking at his itinerary below it really is a packed schedule. He really is trying with regard to bringing foreign investment into India as well as job creation. For all the opposition keeps crying about new measures needed none of them have ever expressed anything apart from...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

Some news publicity for the on Supreme Court to wrap things up by October 18. My view on this is that I’m thankful that things are actually proceeding with some finality. Of course NDTV has tried to equate this news as a criminal act. The whole destruction of the Babri Masjid was a criminal act. It ...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

Just wanted to wish our prime minister a very happy birthday with him turning 69, and may he live a long life in the service of India. Hard to believe that he is already 69, and I would've thought that he would be younger. However the stamina that he keeps with his traveling as well as engagements a...

Some fantastic shot Sam. I was trying to identify some of these birds, but not really find one that exactly matches. Is the last one a Pitta bird? In any case, fabulous shots.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

So today turns out to be Hindi Diwas day. Instead of trying to celebrate unity on some level by a national language apart from English, Tamil Nadu has yet again risen the bogy of the domination of Hindi on everybody else. Anybody who was going through any of the Twitter messages will find them plain...

Re: Nepal and Himalayan News and Discussion 2019

A great venture to open up a petroleum pipeline into Nepal. This will vastly improve the amount of trucks carrying fuel into the Himalayan nation. Nepal is almost completely dependent on petroleum products via India. We have often seen how Nepali Air Force helicopters and to even some extent IAF hav...

Re: ISRO and Space News Discussions 2019

We really need more of Indians such as K.Sivan. Just really a great person all around and I'm not sure if I said before, but coming from such a humble background. He used to sell mangoes to help them get through University. Really from a poor farming community but really one of our next generation r...

Re: ISRO and Space News Discussions 2019

Upsetting scene by Pallav Bagla, asking why a junior scientist who was sent to brief the media after Vikram got lost and instead demanding that K Sivan himself come to explain the details. Only NDTV can be responsible for something like this. Pity, I actually did like the guy on previous, commentari...

Re: ISRO and Space News Discussions 2019

It really has been a roller coaster. Enough for I guess everybody’s emotions to have run dry. However so much to take away from almost making a textbook landing. We were possibly so use to seeing any spacecraft follow the trajectory that it seemed that this would just be the same case again. However...

Some heartbreaking scenes all around today. K Sivan always was and continues to be my hero. India’s real rocket man for as much as he contributed to both PSLV and GSLV. It was always going to be a long shot but we have gotten so used to seeing successes as well as that following that plot graph alwa...

Huge day-to-day. Can't believe that it's finally here. Modi will be at ISTRAC in Bangalore watching the touchdown happen real-time. We should probably declare this a national holiday!. In any case sad to say that I'll be at work but having to quickly check what's going on throughout the whole day. I...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

While the government has initiated innumerable actions to try and generate stimulus to the economy we can understand that it takes some time for these things to initiate.

Re: Corruption and other misdeeds by Congress, SP, AAP and other "secular" political parties.

I am happy to see that DK Shivakumar is finally being interrogated by the ED. From people that I previously have talked to in Bangalore, he ran it with an iron hand. Goes to show how deeply seeded the corruption was in the Congress party. How many Indians received kickbacks and further their own amb...

So it seems that the NRC list is out and close to 19 Lakh Indians have been excluded. However unfortunately a large chunk of Hindus also seem to be included in the list.

Re: Cricket
