While there was news about Sachin willing to play the upcoming series with Pakistan,a sudden announcement made thereafter by the Batting Legend about his retirement from One-Day Cricket is shocking for both the set of people who argue in favour of Sachin playing till he wants and the ones who always felt its high time he quits.
Seems like ‘God’ has lost to the continuous bad patch and ageing issues, while playing, or is it the B.C.C.I. which has asked Master Blaster,Sachin Tendulkar,to declare his retirement, at least, from One-Day Cricket due to his and also Team India’s continuous deteriorating performance ?
Hundreds and thousands of Protesters gathered at India Gate to march towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan to seek justice for 23 year-old girl who was brutally gangraped in a moving bus. As the area is security sensitive the Delhi police was forced to stop the swallowing crowd from heading towards President’s House.The protesters have been braving several water canons , tear gases and lathi charges and are still protesting and expecting a concrete answer from the government. The police has been attacking the protesters at regular intervals and successfully sending many of them to hospitals.
Courageous cops and active government representatives are making sure the protest is being crushed at the earliest.We should really thank the Delhi police and the government for showing their sincerity in maintaining law and order in the city by trying to curb the protest of the ‘Common Man’ against repeated rapes in Indian capital.
Delhi gangrape – A brutal gang-rape and physical assault in a bus in Delhi is a ‘breaking news’ since last 5 days.Outraged nation,active cops,timely ‘Breaking News Updates from Media,concerned government and opposition parties,its all happening the way it happens only in India. Sheila Dikshit, the Chief Minister of Delhi got emotional and said she would do whatever it takes to save the girl. Previously, after the issue had created a buzz in the Parliament, Sonia Gandhi,the Congress chief, had sent an angry letter to Home Minister , Sushil Kumar Shinde and CM Sheila Dikshit.Sushil Shinde had called up the police head to ask for immediate action. The nation is furious,the opposition is busy blaming the govt and the govt is grilling the police.Out of the six accused,five are already caught.Some serious action is taking place while the victim continues to fight with death.
Thats how it happens in India.Everyone wakes up only after something goes real wrong and makes sure they go to sleep the moment the accused are put to task,often even before that. Why rapes and assaults have become a trend? Why the nation and the administration not bothered coming up with permanent solutions ?Why there are no amendments in law related to rapes and molestation? Why there are no extra security given by cops to protect the physically weak(children,women,senior citizens)? The point is,we talk case specific and forget the case sooner than later and then wait for another incident to shock us up. Is it not time we take measures which would eradicate even the thought of rape,molestation and assault? Be it strict laws like capital punishment, nothing less or free and mandatory spiritual,self-defense and awareness classes sponsored by govt and NGOs,or both,whatever it be but India has to eradicate rapes,assault and molestation once and for all.
BJP winning 12 out of 19 Muslim vote bank dominated seats in Gujarat has given a strong message to the ‘Secular’ Congress party and has also indicated that the Muslims in Gujarat have moved beyond 2002.Interestingly,BJP did not give ticket to any Muslim candidate yet the miraculous support to Modi should let the Congress and other parties, who claim to be SECULAR,get the message that “aam aadmi’ (common man) needs a govt which delivers and not just sympathize in the name of minority community and schedule caste and tribe.
It is Narendra Modi yet again who would be the Chief Minister of Gujarat fight all odds. Neither Keshubhai Patel splitting out of BJP nor Congress’ repeated secular mask could stop brand ‘MODI’ from being the chosen one yet again. Interestingly, constituencies which were muslim dominated, as well,voted in favour of BJP. While the win in Gujarat has not shocked the Congress yet managing a win with almost 2/3rd majority has clearly given Narendra Modi the topmost position in BJP and has fueled the debate of his candidature as the PM face for NDA for the upcoming 2014 General Elections.
Sourav Ganguly has written a column on Sachin’s future and Dhoni’s workload.Well,while there is no denial,he is worth discussing about Sachin’s and Dhoni’s future,seems, no one is bothered about Ganguly’s future in Indian Cricket though he has expressed his desire many a times to be the coach of Team India.
After India has lost against England in the Test Series,there has been questions raised on Dhoni’s captaincy and Sachin’s unwillingness to retire!
All he brought was list of controversies , Pakistan’s Home Minister, Rehman Malik,where he compared 26/11 terror attacks to Babari Mosque demolition,stated that Abu Jindal was an Indian Agent and to top it denied enough proof from Indian government to hold ,26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed ,guilty! To add on,he has left Indian Home Minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde,humiliated with opposition asking why Shinde did not answer back when Malik was comparing 26/11 and Babari Mosque demolition and the media highlighting Shinde referring,Hafiz Saeed as ‘Shri’ and ‘Mr’ in the parliament. The question remains , what was the need of inviting Rehman Malik who has been popular for controversial statements and has delayed action against Pakistanis involved in 26/11 terror attacks and all the more when Pakistan is expecting a change of governance?
