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

2. Indians always had a "hero worship" mentality and the Brits also gave a good image to Bandit-ji and Ghandi so that they were considered as demi-Gods. Important to note. Any other alternative point of view was ruthlessly crushed by Brits. Especially Savarkar, Bhagat Singh, and other rebels who ha...

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

My property in B'lore bought right before NM became PM hasn't appreciated a bit, Infact it is lagging behind the inflation, so yes black money to a large extent has been sucked out of the system. Heard of some folks who bought properties in Gurgao NCR region 2009-2011, are now having tough time in ...

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

The only time I remember when India was bountiful with jobs was from around 1997 to about 2010 when the Y2K rush started and companies would go to campuses and hire in truckloads. I was in the US but all we heard was how awesome it was in India and how people got 50% raises and promotions every 6 m...

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

Sometimes we put Indian voters too high on a pedastal and we fully know how much pathetic they can be. They have been improving but until TMC/AAPtards and SP/BSP type of third-rated parties exist, the intelligence of an Indian voter shall always be in doubt.

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

There's absolutely no decency left in debates anymore. Ever since Congress and their allies have lost the plot, they are raising idiotic and illogical points. And when they get called out, they simply pitch their voice up so as to down BJP spokie's point of view. Their entire argument is now reduced...

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

Under the current legal framework, its impossible to put a leash on media. Giving misleading information is an offence even today, am I right? What is required is a move by common citizens (who cannot be directly connected with any political party) to start filing court cases. And off course the so...

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

Under the current legal framework, its impossible to put a leash on media. Modi simply cannot do anything about it. Guvermand can bring in bills by putting in stringent punishments towards fake news by taking out their licenses to print or air. However it's too late for this term. Hopefully next term.

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

Gadkari is actually very clear and unambiguous about his support to Modi and BJP. Unfortunately he lacks the sophistication and comes out as village bumpkin/simpleton who isn't very careful about what he says. Hence his statements are cherry picked by media and are used/abused/twisted to its maximum...

Of course, not to take away credit from Modi's work as CM.. that helped too, because GJ was/is much better governed for years before Modi's ascension. People expected magic in 5 years.

We also need to understand one more thing - one of the most important factor for BJP winning LS2014 was because of unpopularity/corrupt rule of Congress. This was more than Modi's popularity (regardless of his achievements as Guj CM). We are continuing to see more of such Congress unpopularity recen...
