Congress and over 10 opposition parties have petitioned the Election Commission stating that EVM (Electronic Voting Machines) were either faulty or rigged to favor only one opponent (BJP of course). So they site the results of UP and Uttarakhand, but don’t cite Punjab (which Congress won) or Bengal (where TMC won and there were so many allegations of illegal voting), or in Delhi where AAP won 67 out of 70 MLA seats, or in sevaral previous elections. Regarding VVPAT machines – where the EVMs give a paper receipt and a good idea, the Congress which was in power for ten years saw no urgency to implement it. Now they say the Central government is delaying implementation.
Does all this make sense… as CITIZENS AND VOTERS YOU DECIDE!!!

Indians have started slowly but surely started boycotting Chinese goods. Confederation of All India Traders (or CAIT) reports that sale of Chinese products is expected to decline by 30 per cent this Diwali. Sardar Bazar in Delhi, India’s largest wholesale market, traders have noted that Chinese goods sales are dropping by at least 20 percent, and in some other cities and markets by over 40%. While the mutual trade between India and China has been growing rapidly, India’s imports from China are nearly 40 times larger than China’s imports from India. China has noticed these trends, and now China has issue an threat which is these trends if continue would negatively impact the India-bound investments from its enterprises and also the bilateral cooperation between the two countries. But do we really care?

There are news reports that a Delhi based Believer’s Church, a Christian denomination with congregations and parishes worldwide, is collecting medicines, food packets and clothing to provide aid and relief for victims of the Kerala temple tragedy in Kollam. It certainly provides for good public relations. But… an emerging question is if the real motivation is something else – which is supplying such aid as inducements to victims in tragic circumstances to convert them to Christianity? Numerous independent studies have documented that large amounts of funds collected by Christian organisations is used for conversion. These acts include “soul harvesting” or “church planting” are to offset the declines in western countries. As we focus on things such as “Make in India”, why are the sufferings of a tribal man or villager in Kerala a concern of people in UK, USA, Germany or Denmark? Is it really Conversions when people are at their weakest and desperate?

The current NDA government has evicted over 1,000 unauthorized residents or those who have overstayed which include many English media journalists and politicians from one of most luxurious and expensive government owned homes in the heart of Delhi. In many instances, like for journalists, they were given such accommodations for free or almost free, and as a quid-pro-quo, positive press was expected. However, the work is only nearly half done as more than 1,200 homes remain under unauthorized occupation.

No country in the world has a “Hitler Road”, so why should India have something similar? What is shocking is why was such a road name – i.e. Aurangzeb Road, given the atrocities Aurangzeb perpetrated in India, allowed to continue for so many decades after independence? Did you know a few years back – Kerala Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb’s official residence name was changed from “Ganga” to “Grace”.

Aurangzeb’s reign was barbaric in the India – and so why have monuments and trophies to remind us of that. In light of this, there is growing clamor to rename Delhi’s famous Aurangzeb Road after the greatly loved people’s president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam – known for “generosity and kindness are the virtues which are always remembered.” The feeling is now is time to make amends for the mistakes that have been made in history so that the future is brighter. Many political parties are also supporting such a move.
