Modi Lost Bihar Battle

Modi Lost Bihar Battle.




The month long elections of Bihar assembly ended today 8th Nov, 2015 with victory of Nitish Kumar lead Mahagadbandhan. The all efforts of prime minister Narender Modi lead National Democratic Alliance (NDA) were lost in vain. The election which fought on subjects of Chemistry (DNA remark by Modi), Mythology (Lalu's Nar Pishach and Rakshas remarks), Biology (Cow and Beef politics) and Tourism ( Fire Crackers in Pakistan and sending critics to Pakistan) more than political and developmental issues concluded with victory of Indian values of tolerance, peace and unity.

BJP attempted to polarize these polls by bringing Hindutva and cow in between the development (vikas) model. Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar did their best to play caste card and Bihar honor issue which have nurtured them a sweet fruit of victory. It seems the issues which were point of hot discussion in the nation also played an important role in this elections. Bhartiya Janata Party and Narender Modi's attitude towards rising price of pulses, Nepal Blockade issue, award returning and their intolerance in dealing with their critics have cost them a defeat. Every state election is not as important as this one because this will shape the future politics of the country and will help central government to rethink their policies in running the country.

Here are few takeaways from this election: 

  • The caste equations which thought to be broken with Modi wave have returned to haunt the nation thanks again to Modi patronage RSS head's remarks against reservation.
  • Hindu and Muslim both understand development is necessary for their sustenance as human.
  • Cow issue was more political than religious.
  • Lalu is not tired and retired, he still has role to play in national politics.
  • Narender Modi as Prime Minister of India must respect the decorum of his post by selecting his words wisely.
  • Indian Muslims have nothing to do with Pakistan and presence of Pakistanophobia proves government's weakness.
  • Awardees who have returned their awards are raising genuine questions. They are not anti- national as portrayed by ruling government. 
We have still to witness many ups and downs in Indian politics but I wish all these up and down prove in favor of the country. Till then God Bless India.

  1. You have raised genuine questions and offers a detailed analysis. Politics of religion and polarization doesn't work. High time for Modi to dissociate himself with extremists like RSS and VHP. There is a growing perception that he is a weak PM and him calling shots is smoke without fire.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
