As another Independence Day approaches us, let us congratulate India’s only official Tricolour manufacturing unit located in Bengeri Village in Hubli, in North Karnataka. Tulsageri village in Bagalkot district of Karnataka weaves the special khadi cloth used to make the flag – and works pretty much non-stop. The Karnataka Khadi Gramodyog Samyukta Sangha was founded in 1957 by freedom fighter Shri Venkatesh Magadi.
They have supplied over 3 crore flags to Indian Government offices in just the past 3 years. The flags need to meet exacting standards laid out by the ISB – The Bureau of Indian Standards. It would also be amazing to know that the official flags are manufactured in only nine sizes measuring from 0.5×0.3 feet (the smallest) to 21×14 feet (the biggest). All Indians need to visit both of these villages…

Assam which has a highly porous border with Bangladesh has been subject to extreme illegal migration. Illegals have come from across the border – taken the land of the locals (tribals, adhivasis), taken over businesses, stolen cattle and imposed their own law with a very difficult law and order situation. This consists of lakhs and lakhs of people. Some are legal bengali migrants from West Bengal.
Finally, after decades of suffering and many court battles, Supreme Court’s appointed large team has identified that nearly 41 lakhs (or 12%) out of the 329 lakhs are likely ilegal. The illegals are those who were not Indian citizens as on 24 March 1971. These people identified as illegals have an appeals process. But while may question this large number, WHILE PEOPLE OF ASSAM ARE LIKELY TO BE DELIGHTED, DUE TO THE ILLEGAL ONSLAUGHT OVER 50 YEARS, some are wondering if 41 lakh is too low. Let us remember that the verification was dependent on people working and looking at documents. Sadly, Aadhar card, Voter ID, Bank details all one could easily obtain in the past.
SO WHILE 41 LAKHS IS LARGE, THE REAL ILLEGAL POPULATION MAY BE MUCH LARGER AND WHILE DIFFICULT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED ALSO. THE NEXT BIG CHALLENGE IS TO PUSH THROUGH THE EXPECTED OPPOSITION OBSTACLES TO DEPORT THESE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, A REAL BIG CHALLENGE AND HEADACHE.

We learn that 200 people (yes 200 people – most are likely to be muslims) vandalised the house, burnt vehicles and stole huge amount of jewellery of a Hindu man because HE ELOPED A MUSLIM WOMAN IN NATURAL LOVE. They eloped in over a month ago, so this mob attack must have been planned.
In Delhi, the family of muslim woman killed a Hindu man in brought daylight and such incidents are happening all too often, with numerous such incidents not even reported. However, LOVE JIHAD – which is planned betrothal of non-muslim women and then converting them to Islam is apparently okay.
Where are the secular politicians on this? Where are they hyperactive Delhi and TV news media which makes a big deal of the most insignificant things? And where is the Supreme Court in this – which is not one to stop in stepping into almost anything… IF WE BELIEVE LOVE IS NATURAL, THEN SUCH TERRIBLE INCIDENTS WHICH ARE HAPPENING OFTEN AND WITH MORE INTENSITY IS REALLY BAD…

PM Modi visit to Rawanda, was the first ever by an Indian prime minister to country that has witnessed so much strife. The most amazing part of the visit was India’s gift of hundreds of cows to poor families in villages of Rawanda.
Indians would be pleased to learn that just in India, Rwandas consider the cow sacred, they don’t eat beef and welcome the cows from pasture everytime – i.e. every day, and milk is considered sacred and is part of every meal. Even though the country went through forced conversion from their native religion to Christianity, the country has maintained the high esteem that the cow is held in…

USA says China appears to have resumed it Doklam activities and neither India or Bhutan is stopping them, yes it is tough but a needed action. They are showing maps where the Indian and Chinese posts are only 73 meters apart across the border, which is a little more than stone’s throw.
Indian Minister of State for External Affairs Ministry Shri VK Singh, who is a former Indian Army chief said, “there are no new developments at the site of the face-off with China in Doklam and its vicinity, and status quo prevails in the area.”
SO THESE ARE OPPOSITE STATEMENTS OF THE SAME SITUATION ON THE GROUND. WHO IS RIGHT AND WHO IS WRONG? WHY OFFICIAL STATEMENTS ARE TOTALLY OPPOSITE? Can we get some visual evidence?

AAP and its leader and founder Arvind Kejriwal is known for drama, dharna and tamasha to draw attention. But in a real situation, 2 AAP MLAs – Kultar Singh and Amarjit Singh who were on a private visit, were denied entry into Canada due to criminal cases.
Also, Congress’ Punjab Government says AAP MLAs are close to close’ to pro-separatist Sikh outfits overseas, most of them being pro-Khalistani organisations based in Canada and America.
Canada’s reasons look reasonable ==> what a shock for these elected MLAs and AAP…

In a brave but good judgement, the Madras (Chennai) High Court observed that, “Everybody has got the right to conduct prayer as per law in the places of worship or in ones home, but not in the public places which causes immense nuisance to the public“. The court was referring to public places such as a railway yard, public footpaths, public grounds and others being used without proper permission to erect unauthorized structures for prayer.
Think about it – if such unauthorized use were to go on unchecked, nothing would stop one group or the other from taking over any place and converting it to a place of prayer.
And as Indians would attest to, such activities cause spark communal violence and of course cause extreme public nuisance…

With the 2 seen holding hands and seen as very much a couple, news is flying in the filmi and entertainment world that our own Priyanka Chopra, 36 years of age and once a Miss World and Nick Jonas, only 25 years of age and one of the Jonas brothers singers are going to get engaged soon. Per reports, they first met in May 2017, started seeing & dating each other from May 2018. Priyanka went to a wedding with Nick to meet his family and looks like Nick visited India to meet Priyanka’s family. NOW WE HEAR THAT THEIR ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT COULD BE ANY DAY. So even by standards of American romances, this has moved really really fast.
Indian should worry. Today’s love aside, American romances don’t last most of the time. Here the differences are huge – age, fame, culture. Some might say is 25 years a bit early, would the boy be a mature enough? And finally – would all this see a happy ending.
Then of course, some of us are wondering does Priyanka really need to marry someone who is of a different culture? Yes she has made some mistakes recently – going to meet Rohingyas in Bangladesh when India’s own citizens problems could have been highlighted, and acting in a American drama where Indian nationalists are shown as terrorists, (this was followed by belated apologies by both Priyanka and the the shows producers).
So let us wait and watch – is this a long lasting real life story or a Bollywood-Hollywood passing thriller…

The great Indian rupee hit a new low cross Rs. 69 per US dollar and recovered some. And this is the ever. The Reserve Bank of India is trying different ways to stop this even reverse it. So what is causing all this. The currency markets like stock markets and commodity markets are reacting to ==> concerns about trade wars but not about actual wars luckily, the US economy is really strong and getting stronger due to tax cuts and reduced regulations and the Federal Reserve (the Reserve Bank of USA) is raising US interest rates are high.
As well know, India is going through many positives. Growing economy, stable political situation, strong government, improving business climate and ease of doing business, absence of scandals and major corruptions which is going down, GST has been a big plus amongst others.
But world markets are moody fickle (Yes even them just like us !) – they are thinking today and tomorrow at best.
SO THE RUPEE WEAKNESS IS MORE DUE TO EXTERNAL FACTORS – A STRONG US DOLLAR AND US ECONOMY, AND NOT A REFLECTION OF INDIA. Not just India – currencies of many countries are experiencing this.

The public and leaders are saying that Rahul Gandhi may have said that the Congress Party, once upon a long time ago, India’s biggest, is a party of muslim men. Even the prime minister has heard or read about such a statement being made.
The question the public and your political opponents want to know is do you care for Muslim women and want to bring equality to them? And if so, then why don’t you pass the –
* Triple talaq bill?
* Nikah halala bill?
* Women’s reservation bill – which will give reservations to women?
