And we wanted him to speak up

For a very long we watched the mild mannered PM in anticipation, hoping for the moment when the barely heard PM will break his silence on issues of significance. Once he did speak on the matter of food grain rotting in government Godowns, when the courts x same out with scathing observation. Not with regret, or sorrow or remorse, but with righteous arrogance as he told the courts to stay off the turf of governance. Another time he spoke was to admonish his countrymen as schoolkids when they questioned his silence on cwg scam questioning their impatience in the face of massive corruption.
He rarely speaks but when he does, it is with such bad pretext and such hurtful connotation that it is hard to believe his mild manners are for real. every time the first attempt is to question the motive of those who question, then to mumble some thing incomprehensible and then exposed, hitting back arrogantly.The same pattern we see in the western funding he raised regarding NGO protesting nuclear plant.He says as he immediately sets off his police to explore, the same police which is never able to find truth in cash for vote in nuclear deal. Don't we see a cold calculative mind at work cleverly camouflaged in mild scholarly demeanour. Can we have no better future than to near it and bear only one person in the list of exempted people from security check on airports by name, who kind of threatened entering politics.Do that take us for idiots ready to suffer fools? Do we really want him to speak?

The Great Shake in Governance- New Modi Cabinet- My Take

This week, the Narendra Modi government was expanded. However, as it turned out, it was not merely an expansion, rather complete rehash of the cabinet, with many faces, widely believed as non-performers eased out of their positions.  The expansion came with the dropping of some key names, much famed and widely seen on TV Channels, perceived to me closest to the leftist media houses. Prakash Javadekar was shunted, Ravishankar Prasad was dropped, so was Ramesh Pokhariyan Nishank. Apart from the worthies of Ministries of Information & Broadcasting, Law and IT and HRD, Dr. Harshvardhan was also dropped from health.  Before we look at the addition, it is pertinent to look at the deletions from the earlier Cabinet. Prakash Javadekar, as I&B Minister was expected to take strong stand, make statements, blast the inane propaganda in key policy initiatives that the Modi Government was taking. From Land Acquisition Bill to Demonetization to GST to Triple Talaq to CAA to Farmer's Bill-

Analyzing the Analysts- Failed Attempts to Understanding the Modi Magic

  " When a writer tries to explain too much, he is out of time before he begins. " wrote Isaac Bashevis Singer, 1978 Nobel Winning writer. As year wraps to an end and Bengal Elections are around the corner, Analysts are jumping over one another to analyze the way politics panned out over this Pandemic-ridden unfortunate and sad year.  When you go through most of the analysis, you find them dipping into the froth floating at the top. They often develop the hypothesis first then try to fit the data. This gap between interpretation and data leads to their conclusions mostly turning way off the mark. The most common and prevalent hypothesis that is being currently floated is that those who support Narendra Modi are some sort of fanatic army, which has no reason to support him and which are loyal to him in the most retrograde terms. For that very reason, Narendra Modi, in return, cares only about those who voted for him and no one else. While there is no proof of Narendra Modi app

Pandemic, Politics and Propaganda

  There is an interesting episode in Mahabharata , in Drona Parva . Mighty Drona, the teacher of Kaurava and Pandavas took charge after the great Commander of the Kaurava Army, Bhishma had fallen. There was a huge battle and Krishna predicted complete routing of the Pandava forces if Drona was to fight even for half a day. To circumvent this, Bhima was to make an announcement that Drona's son Ashwatthama was slain. This would have led to a dejected Drona surrendering his weapons and thus could be killed, unarmed. As Drona  did not believe in Bhima, he called upon  Yudhisthira, the eldest of the Pandava to confirm.  Yudhishthira, the righteous one, than famously said that  Ashwatthama was dead, not the man but the Elephant. It is then mentioned in before now the Chariot of Yudhishthira had remained at the height of four fingers' breadth from the Earth's surface; but after he uttered the lie, his steeds touched the Earth.  There is a certain glory and lightness of spirit in s
