For me the best moment was to see Australia blown into oblivion in the semis, its good to see a WC final without them

Re: Bharat Ganrajya Relaunch and India Aware Association

Hi Muns, in light of the above discussion I wanted to share an idea which I had been thinking of since I started using wikipedia. As you may be aware many articles on wikipedia especially on India have a western influence or thought process and many of them can be challenged. Since times are changin...

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

Oh, Great. I am just following online news portals and twitter. The crowd photos in Modi's rallies don't look as massive as in 2014. The crowd is not as responsive to his speeches either. The noise levels are less. Modi had to request people to calm down many times earlier. I don't see that over th...

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

In the future Modi would be a bigger victim of incumbency than MMS in spite of all the scams and Pak pasand things that happened under UPA rule v/s the great improvements Modi brought in. This is simply because our nation has a history of turning against her own heroes in no time. Modi's policy and ...

Re: Cricket

Stark difference between the conduct of the Aussie media/commentators and the Kiwis. Kiwis have been more studious and humble in their approach,always talking about the finer points which they can learn from the Indian greats and giving them enough respect which they deserve. The bogan (rough aussie...

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

Dont blame BJP for election defeats
Dont blame Voters for Congress victories
Dont blame middle class for NOTA

But then give a rational explanation on how Congress managed to win in so many constituencies and gave BJP a sound drubbing?

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

I simply cannot buy the fact that a 44 LS seat party out of 543 is winning big states in India comprehensively. The INC political machine across India is deeply entrenched. The only way to break it was to have the BJP control large states and the center through 2030, but even in 2014 we knew that t...

Re: POLL THREAD: Has NaMo's BJP Govt Done Enough for Hindu Causes?

The term Hindu cause is a bit misleading. Its easy to define a christian cause, islamic cause, buddhist cause etc. But the Hindu 'cause' is a very wide net. No matter what anybody or any party does for core Hindutva or Sanatan if you want to call it, will not reverberate with many Hindus and faction...

Even the best brains at BBC, WAPO, NYT couldn't report the Sentinelese as Modi Bhakts. Shame. Time to shed light on their patriarchal tribal system, may be that might help.

Re: Cricket

India yet again proves why its the best side in the world when it comes to pure batsmanship. Give them a flat wicket and even 400 would look easy target. In the end it seemed like Rohit Sharma was playing an exhibition match. This series looks like a 5-0
