Jayalalithaa – Men Prostrate Before Her, An Amazing Sight…

Jayalalitha symbolized woman power for many Tamils and many considered her as the iron lady. MPs, MLAs and Ministers all fell at her feet. On many occasions, all 37 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 13 MPs in the Rajya Sabha did namaskaram or lay down flat to pay respects to their leader. On other occasions, her minister and party cadre would prostrate before her vehicle, her helicopter or in other public places. The successor chief minister, O Panneerselvam took his oath of office with Jayalalithaa’s photo on hand.

Lesser Known Things About Jayalalitha, Deceased CM Of Tamil Nadu

Jayalalitha was always in the news, but some things people may not know about her. She drew a salary of only Re. 1/- as the chief minister. Jayalalithaa was always referred to as Puratchi Thalaivi (or Revolutionary Leader). She was professionally trained in western classical piano, and Indian classical dances, including Bharatanatyam, Mohiniattam, Manipuri and Kathak. Besides Tamil and Kannada films, she starred in one hini firm also. Even though she was a Kannadiga (or born in Karnataka), she always referred to herself as a Tamilian. She starred with a leading tamil actor M.G. Ramachandran (MGR), who went on to become chief minister of Tamil Nadu. Her closeness to MGR led her to be inducted into politics, the AIADMK party. She was elected as the firm woman leader of the opposition of the Tamil Nadu assembly. Sadly, as the Leader of the Opposition, DMK MLAs disrobed her while the assembly was in session, and despite this she walked out in full public view with a torn saree. She became the first and youngest woman chief minister of the state.

Voters Give Demonetization A Big Thumps Up – BJP Win Two Key States

Political commentators thoughts demonetization would backfire on the ruling party. Instead during the recent local and panchayat level elections in Maharashtra and Gujarat, BJP made a clean sweep in both states in a big way. There were always many issues, drought, regional and community agitations such as Marathwada and Patildars. The big recent programme and potential public issue was the demonetization. Opposition parties are leading agitations, bandhs and stalling parliament. But at the ground level voters have spoken in a big and convincingly way about how they see it. So would the opposition listen and respect the verdict?

Richest Hindu Temple Relaxes Dress Code For Women

Sri Padmanabaswamy temple, one of the richest temples in the world, will allow women to wear Salwar Kameez and Churidar. Previously only saris and full length skirt were allowed. If one wore Salwar Kameez and Churidar, then they had to wear a mundo (dhoti) over that. Keralites also wanted this saying that this is more convenient. The temple’s senior Tantri (priest) is against this change as he feels it is against the temple’s centuries old customs.

Does Supreme Court Want To Appoint Judges With Adverse Intelligence Report?

The fight between the Government of India and the Supreme Court is building up. India’s judiciary, especially the Supreme Court seems to be hyperactive, and in the view of several people stepping into executive decisions. Further, the Supreme Court also struck down the parliament passed National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act as being constitutional but has not developed any alternative procedures that would provide transparency. The latest is the Supreme Court insisting on appointing judges who have had adverse intelligence reports or serious nature of complaints. Should Supreme Court be subject to review by the larger public or are they not subject any scrutiny whatsoever?

Kashmiri Terror Outfits Desperate For New Notes

Police say Kashmiri terror outfits operations have been hit hard by the ban on old notes. Laskhkar and other terror outfits are desperately on the look out for new notes to basic things like charge their mobile phones and pay their cadres. One group of terrorists attached a local bank and took Rupees 14 lacs of old notes. This might be a surprise but police say that it costs the terrorists around rupees 10 lacs each month to support 100 active terrorists. Each fellow uses up two of more sim cards as they keep changing sim cards, change phones – all of which costs more than Rs. 10,000 per terrorist per month.

Demonetization Leading To Behaviour Changes

Demonetization Leading To Behaviour Changes…

The newspapers and TV channels are criticizing the government for the demonetization exercise. But the behaviour changes that were expected are starting to happen. Some of the early ones are: people are rushing to pay their electricity, income tax, real estate tax or other bills quickly; E-wallet companies are seeing a huge spike in payments; credit & debit card machines are being sought by small mechants at 30 times the normal rate; there is a huge drop in real estate transactions and builders feel cash transactions will be athing of the past; borrowing costs for infrastructure companies is falling fast so they will borrow more to invest more; hawala transactions for Chinese imports is taking a hit; and people in cities are using less cash and switching over to cards, internet banking and e-wallets more than ever. So this change is not without pain especially for the rural areas. But these changes are cause for hope and there is a move away from cash as one of the goals of the demonetization!
