Re: Cricket

Call me one of the few...

They made it to the semi-finals which is great and the players will still make millions, but I'm kinda glad the Indian team lost. The real competition is on 15 July 2019 at 2:51AM IST, until then this ICC World Cup is a distraction that country does not need.

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

I would say let the president of India repeal Article 35A of the constitution on the grounds that it is discriminatory toward women. The SC will stay the president's decision, it will then become a political benchmark for the electorate to see who is for India and who is against.

Here is some feedback: Congress deal was to get - 126 Rafales (what IAF wants) - Made in India by HAL - Cheaper rate per jet The selection was done by the IAF and MoD, not INC; however, it was MMS and AK Antony that cancelled the acquisition because of kickbacks. The Rafales was selected on 31 Jan 2...

Re: Nukkad

Family and I saw CM last night. They liked WW more for highligting feminism aspect. CM is a boring necessity in the Avengers storyline. About 40 min of the film could have been an Agents of Shield episode.

My wish too. Gandhi needs to be erased from history books
One way to do that is introduce new notes without Gandhiji. He can be relegated to some postage stamps.

From Dr. Praveen Patil: Just 1.8% swing in MP & Rajasthan would have changed the outcome. In Gujarat, 1.3% swing would have given 25 additional seats to BJP. In Karnataka, 0.6% swing would have won a majority. In effect, some 8-10 lakh votes have changed the entire narrative in the run up to 2019! ...

Good luck in translating all those fancy GDP figures to a corresponding linear development on the ground. An increase in development spending as percentage of GDP does make a difference. On the ground it is not a linear development, rather think of it as two steps up and one step down, but in time ...

It is unfair to say BJP govts did not do anything in RJ, MP, CG. They brought this three states out of BIMARU status. Just look at per capita GDP. It was near UP/BH. Now it is in middle ranks similar to WB. Supratik, its all relative. As they grew so did India. So to the localites, the state is the...

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

What people miss is that the tax base has improved where human development, health care, and education spending is increasing a percentage of GDP in the last 4 years. The total number of poor is down overall and as a percentage. India is on the cusp of breaking out from a 3rd world country to develo...

Main reason is educational and mass media indorctination
Precisely. The education system makes compliant INC drones out of individuals. It is clear now why Republicans in the US jump on public school curriculums. I disagree with them, but see their point.

In 2013 less than 29 million filed IT returns. In 2018 over 68 million filed IT returns. And the percentage is increasing in double digits in the next few years. For this the BJP. IMHO has been punished.

Supratik,

Unconstituonal?

I just looked it up. There have been over 100 amendments to the Indian constitution since 1950. Most of them have happened during Kangress rule.

We need UCC, full repeal of Art. 370, and restrictions on voting rights.
