Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Anyone who does not pay income tax must have their voting rights removed. Too many useless, uneducated scum in public who deserve disenfranchisement. Voting is a privilege, not a right. Voting is a right! Since when did Voting become a privilege. This is very westernized jaundiced view of the elect...

These are tough times for Dharma, seems like it is under assault from all sides. Hopefully not its own.

Sabarimala should be (or is?) secular while government-built community halls need to be Christian? And they would probably get most of what is in the list in Telengana!

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Just as an aside, I have been a reader of Hindu for a long time but certainly not out of love over the past 20 years. The other options ToIlet, DH, IE and others were even worse. But finally this year I cut the cord - no more Hindu and even though I miss out on some local news from it, I manage with...

Whether someone is talkative or not, we cannot expect prime ministers to comment on political matters that are evolving. The evil side have been, over the last 4 years, clamouring about Modi keeping quiet about lynchings and activist death etc really to provoke him politically and to make the point ...

Looks like the Judges' clique continues to have its way! Given his lack of seniority, this paves the way for the seculars to have strong support from the judiciary even 10-15 years down the road?

Sounded like the central issue that was publicized was that the officer shouted at the woman and may have questioned her unnecessarily about her name(s). There has been no denial of that publicly as far as I have seen. Has this been proven? According to reports of eyewitnesses carried in the media,...

No need to try and set up an adversarial debate by positioning your opinions as contrary to a "consensus". I don't think any such consensus exists here, as you can probably see from recent posts. Neither am I trying to promote any such consensus. Let me explain one more time: It's already an "adver...

Re: Election Discussions - National, State etc

I would hope that despite the differences in the Governers' actions in Goa and now in KA, etc., there are valid principles behind these decisions. In each case when there is no clear majority, the role of the Governer would have to be to call a party or a coalition that can reliably prove majority w...

Re: Election Discussions - National, State etc

Don't mean to hurt anyone's sensibilities... This is almost exactly what I was hoping for and probably something I even posted somewhere in BGR. This leaves a mark on KA politics showing BJP head and shoulders over Con and JDS. But the historically murky governance of the state will go to the losers...

I am a still bit scared, would prefer INC and Left supporters to celebrate before elections and BJP supporters celebrate after election results. Any result that helps nudge BJP to a 2019 LS majority is what would make me happy. How about BJP getting about 45% of seats, INC and JD each with ~25% sea...
