Tamil Nadu's Political Thriller

Tamil Nadu's Political Thriller




As expected split in the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu is widely visible after the death of J.Jayalalithaa who was the undisputed leader of the masses and also in the party. But as happened in the case of regional parties where there is only a single mass appealing leader leading the political party split was unavoidable as every leader try to taste the slice of power voided by that leader's absence. In this case Sasikala popularly known as Chinamma (Mother's sister) and O. Paneerselvam who was Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu in various occasions in absence of Jayalalithaa are fighting over her legacy in the party and the government. 

O. Paneerselvam was leading the government as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and Sasikala was leading the AIADMK but it was decided by party legislature that there should be only one power center for which they elected Sasikala as chief minister of the state. Paneerselvam who resigned from the CM post after this decision later claimed that he was pressurized to do so by people of Sasikala group and he will remain the CM unless decided differently by the governor which triggered the plot of this political thriller in the state. Some believed DMK the largest opposition party of TN was behind this controversy while many others believed that central government is trying to destabilize the state government to impose President's rule as it did in the state of Arunanchal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Now its up to the governor to check the claims of both the leaders of support of MLAs and then give a nod to any one of them to prove majority in the assembly and form the government. Governor's delay in judgement and sending reports to center government for further decision also raising doubts of some conspiracy. Coming of Jayalalithaa's niece Deepa in this drama to target Sasikala also adding to the drama of this thriller.

I have said earlier that it happens in regional parties when the popular leader died or resigned from the active politics that people inside the party fought for the claim of his/her legacy. When Bal Thackerey leaved the active politics and made his son the president of the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra his nephew Raj Thackerey split from the party to form another party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena which claimed to be the true bearer of Bal Thackerey's ideals. Somewhat similar kind of power tussle also witnessed between Akhilesh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav in Samajwadi Party ,UP to claim Mulayam's heritage. Congress, BJP, AAP and many other parties saw such splits in the name of serving the people arguing that party has deviated from its original path. 

Like in Tamil Nadu every party or state witnessed such political thriller's in name of public will while actually it is for power control. I only hope whatever happen in Tamil Nadu has betterment of people store in it. Till next post. God Bless Tamil Nadu.

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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
