A Swamy Who Is Not A Sage

A Swamy Who Is Not A Sage
Subramanian Swamy is a unique character of Indian politics. He always grabs the limelight for accusing someone for something. From last two decades since I am observing the Indian politics, I saw him suddenly come up with issues creating a media hype by blaming people in power and then going back to oblivion. Since he is a lawyer at many occasions he has fought court battles also but except 2G scam he didn't delivered anything significant in any case. 
Swamy is active in politics for more than 40 years but never hold any important government post except few months as minister in Janata Party government. He was the active member of Jan Sangh, Janata Party and now Bhartiya Janata Party but currently his role is limited to some vague statements and accusations with which his party detaches itself. Is this the frustration of not getting a portfolio even after so many years of active politics for BJP and RSS? Or he is under some secret mission to destroy the re…

Book Review : Thousand Unspoken Thoughts
Thousand Unspoken Thoughts is a poetry book written by Prerna Khatri who is an Advocate by profession. The book is published by Virgin Leaf Books of Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd. I have received this book from the publishers.

LOL - Laugh Out Loud

LOL - Laugh Out Loud
In our tension filled life, we hardly get any chance to laugh. I ran a manufacturing unit with my brother where we make male ethnic garments like Kurta Pajama, Sherwani, Indo-Westerns, Nehru Jacket and Suits. There we also face the similar tension filled atmosphere to complete orders and to handle working staff but this cutting master of ours is a stress buster. This dance video was recorded by another employee who encouraged him that he dances well , now you decide he dance well or not but one thing is guaranteed that you will laugh out loud after seeing this. 
Note: If you are injurious to laughing don't watch this video
Here is the real Indian belly dance:



Muhammad Ali - The Only Boxer I Know

Muhammad Ali - The Only Boxer I Know


The title statement is not an exaggeration but a fact. I have never watched a boxing match even on television and neither I am interested in this sports but I know who Muhammad Ali was. I know what sport he played and that he was the boxing champion who was almost undefeatable during his playing years. I know him, I recognize him and I respect him for the life he lived for the rights of American Blacks and a true champion of the sport he played. 
My knowledge about him is what I have read in Wikipedia and other such sites on internet but his certain quotes, reading stories about his struggles from other greats made me aware of him. He was such a sportsman that this sport Heavyweight Boxing became synonymous with his name. If you asked someone about boxing he would definitely mention his name in this conversation. He died on 3rd June 2016 leaving a world with his life full of inspiration for generations to come coincidentally this day is also the d…

Fun, Freedom, Confidence

Fun, Freedom, Confidence
We the modern generation wants everything instantly. We are ready to go at once rather than waiting for the best time to do a thing. So the things around us must have the capability to match our styles, to match our free spirited self, that's why we keep faster, sleek, stylish smartphones, wear clothes which suits our personality and prefer a vehicle which give us these things but sadly in this category we have little options to explore. 
The soon to be launch Datsun rediGo by Nissan provides everything today's generation deserves and demand. Datsun rediGO gives a unique combination of style and comfort, with the best of Japanese technology. The three most interesting features which attracted me towards this modern machine are:
Exterior: It has a modern and sleek design. It doesn't look bulky or a heavy vehicle but a modern machine to drive you across your destinations. With a style to flaunt on roads to make other jealous it doesn't compromise…

The Political Tamasha

The Political Tamasha
Time has changed, time is changing and time will change; things also change according to it but I prefer they change for the positiveness, for the good. Modi government's show on completing 2 years in power was loaded with Bollywood stars and cabinet ministers. ' Ek Naye Subah (A New Dawn) as it was called kept public broadcasting channel busy for the whole day in self praise of the government ,if you have done something you pat your back for it and wanted everybody to do the same but why at the cost of public money. My problem lies in the expenditure and the grandness of the whole event.
Firstly the day long telethon on DD channels devoid viewers from choice to watch any other thing on television. Secondly the front page ads on all national and regional daily newspapers would have cost government around millions, we the people have no access to the figures of that government expenditure. Lastly I believe that if you have done something for the people the…
