There is but one country tht humanises virulent islamists via human interest stories, and that is India. @SankarshanT humanises the whole cabal of jihadis looking to subvert the Indian state. Lenin's useful idiots r well co-opted by islamists today https://t.co/7EpSfs6MoX
Suddenly Lutyens cabal seem to be so fond of Jaswant Singh and celebrating his seminal contribution to advancing India’s strategic interest. Yes the same man they vilified and mocked as face at behest of their Congress masters till he slipped in to coma.
When Guha called Shourie a "pamphleteer masquerading as an historian" and other choice names. Delightful read https://t.co/hHCIPrYvKw
Refusing to engage in politics or to take a stand is also a political position: it endorses the status quo, which is often a state of inequality, misery, and suffering for many. Chetan Bhagat, who is cocksure confident about everything, may want to introspect about his platitude
The government’s performance is best judged by what people, mostly away from metropolitans think. @muglikar_ @MatruBhakt @chanya_manya are going to travel 8000 Kms to talk to people and prepare a governance report card.
@OpIndia_com is pleased to host #RoadTo2019
Dear Chetan it may not matter to the rich upper class who seem to have seceded from the republic of India with gated communities et at but as an ex banker how large is that number? Millions of desperately poor people depend on the govt. https://t.co/CTuVcAyYK2
Success isn't driven by hard-work alone it is also left open to winds of fortune/luck in chaotic system. Fortune favours a few including the crooks like Nirav Modi. But commoners depend on social security from the govt.
Chetan is right to the extent that govt coming to power doesn't have an agenda to interfere in people's personal lives in name of religion and culture. And that's exactly why it's swell that Congress don't have an agenda. As I argued here https://t.co/4GCtXTJszm
In the modern world, there is less room for the growth of master strategists in the form of legendary historical figures. But PM Modi does fit into that legendary category when we see the success of BJP under his charismatic leadership in last four years https://t.co/6CBbpYQrdP
Men invented Gods. So it’s natural that they wrote or put words in Gods mouth according to their needs. It’s all a set of rules to bind a group of people together. The one who questions is thrown out of the group. And then they say God punished or talk of Karma.
What is for sure Sir, is anyone who has truly experienced a higher state of consciousness and understood ancient Indian thought,not just learnt it by rote,could not be harbouring or regularly spewing out such venomous nonsense against any group or fellow human beings ! https://t.co/QTB7xR5Nz3

#MrinaliniSarabhai (1918-2016): Dance was the 'radiance of her spirit' https://t.co/ngFhYSw6r2 https://t.co/hSWa9gtx4k
You know her as #India's foremost danseuse, but #MrinaliniSarabhai is more than #Bharatnatyam's shining beacon. A women's rights #activist & a vocal #feminist, she merged #Arts&Culture to social issues & broke #gendered roles in classical dance. We celebrate her. @GoogleDoodles https://t.co/Po9Tq71Qxm
After writer Kamala Das, Google pays tribute to another Keralite and renowned dancer Mrinalini Sarabhai with a doodle on her 100th birth anniversary
On what basis does @Google decide whom to feature on its page..... for example a #RukminiDeviArundale does not merit a page whereas #MrinaliniSarabhai does!

Iqbal was one of the most rabidly communal Islamists that India has seen. Would be surprised if @BDUTT does not know it!
What sentiment are you trying to invoke by mentioning Iqbal?
And I love Faiz's work despite his politics but remember

Yes. The superiority complex filled moderates derigatorily n insultingly described nationalists like Sri Aurobindo Tilak as extremists. Guru of gandhi was Gokhale. @pronam_bharat @Prof_HariOm @pras4net @praneelraja @viryavaan @FallingIntoFilm @vijayadhwaja @Vijaysubbu1

This mire must harbour the orchid and the rose,
From her blind unwilling substance must emerge
A beauty that belongs to happier spheres.
