Modi listens to presentation on 2002 riots

Syed Zafar Mahmood , a renowned critic of Gujarat Chief Minister,Narendra Modi,presented a slide show at the Young Indian Leaders Conclave, touching upon various aspects of problems being faced by Muslims and the 2002 riots, in front of the Gujarat CM and said he was happy that his views were taken in stride. His presentation was to explain why is the Muslim Community of the country heavy-hearted with BJP and Modi. Modi assured to consider the issues presented.

The ghost of 2002 Gujarat riots has haunted Modi since a decade now. And it is the same ghost which has become a major threat for him to even think about the Prime Ministerial post.Convincing the Muslim Community to ease themselves against him is the only way out. After all,the path to Delhi can never be set without the support of  the major Minorities.

Sufferings of a long-haired Indian male

I don’t know that well about the West but I’m sure men with long hair is not that big an issue.In India it indeed is(unless you are in a saintly  group enchanting God’s name and in a Saffron or White attire 😉 ). Its about to be 2 years since I had my last hair-cut done. Ok ! Chill!!  🙂

I know its not normal, at least , for an Indian male.In fact, who better than me would know that. Breaking the shackles of Indian society ain’t easy- a dialogue people may love from an Indian female.Right ?

And if you think Indian male can do whatever they like,you are absolutely wrong. With my hair growing below shoulders,I drive unwanted attention everywhere , no matter, I go anywhere or anyone invades my dwelling.

I would love to show what you go through when you break Indian social norms as a male and would love your feedback.

In my next post , I will surely give my reasons of growing long hair and keeping a trim beard  even at the cost of all the pain, I go through,everyday. 🙂

Ganguly hates comparing with Dhoni

Sourav Ganguly,the former Indian captain spoke to NDTVSports  in an exclusive chat during the Champions Trophy semifinal between India and Sri Lanka in Cardiff on June 20 where he revealed he hates being compared with Dhoni and as he feels players of different era played under different situations and conditions hence cannot be compared. He also said Dhoni is a Terrific Captain and has lot of cricket in him even now !  🙂

No matter , how much we argue and claim Dhoni is better captain than dada aka Sourav Ganguly, one thing is undeniable, there is one thing which only dada could do and no one else –During the final match of the 2002 NatWest Trophy held in Lords,England after a stunning performance by team mates Yuvraj Singh and Md Kaif , Ganguly took off his shirt in public and waved it in the air to celebrate India’s win( It was a statement to the world of cricket) and was later condemned for jeopardizing Lords protocol and cricket. No matter what, Sourav Ganguly taught Team India to stare into the eyes of the opponent and do not go by names of the opponent or the place they were playing in. Today the confidence which we see in Team India’s each and every player is a gift of Sourav Ganguly to Indian Cricket,I firmly believe.

Difference between Dhoni and Ganguly,as per me- Dhoni has attitude and Dada had attitude problem and both rock 😀

What do you say friends ?

Rahul Gandhi visits Uttarakhand

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi flew into Uttarakhand on Monday to survey the rescue and relief operations and spent the night at a base camp. While the BJP has been asking why was Rahul late in visiting the flood hit areas of Uttarakhand, the Congress Spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary said Rahul Gandhi is not a ‘Rambo’.He has gone to survey the flood-hit area as a common citizen. The Rambo word was used targeting Narendra Modi, who had entered the flood-hit area accompanied by bureaucrats  and evacuated 15000 people from his state in chartered helicopter and luxury buses.

Well, who would have hated such a real-life Rambo in  moments of crises ?

Politicizing Uttarakhand Tragedy

On my recent doodle on Uttarakhand Tragedy and its subsequent politicization,one of my regular visitor Vijay Ji (owner of  COMBOUPDATES blog ),made a comment which was so appropriate on the tragedy and the subsequent political developments due to that. I would like to highlight his comment here-“Mysay the vultures are always in hunt for the carcass.“, as his statement is the sole inspiration to this yet another toon on the continued tragedy of the stranded pilgrims are facing,after the floods.Water and Food is being sold to them for unbelievably high prices and sustenance till the rescue team reaches them is becoming difficult. Inhuman behavior from politicians was not a shocker but how about the locals ?

Politics over Uttarakhand Flood

In between the rescue operations , both Congress and BJP has chosen to politically utilize the situation while blaming each other of doing so. Uttarakhand has been hit by heavy flood due to torrential rains, resulting which, thousands of pilgrims and locals are left at the mercy of rescue team.The brutal flow of water has ransacked roads and houses and everything possible in its way.The Kedarnath Temple has been effected a lot.Above 100 are feared dead.Meanwhile,Gujarat CM, Narendra Modi visited the flood hit area on helicopter.Home Minister Union was quick enough to point out,only State CM should do aerial surveys while Congress’ Digvijaya Singh had already criticized Modi’s aerial survey. BJP on the other hand is giving Congress a hard time due to Rahul Gandhi’s absence in yet another crises.
