Terror strikes: a lesson to learn

Enough is enough; terrorists have killed more than a thousand people since the UPA government came to power in 2004. Despite repeated terror strikes in almost all the major cities of the country, the government does have an answer to deal with terrorists. The innocent lives lost and those who are injured due to terror strikes don’t have any meaning to our politicians. Every terror strike has become an opportunity for our political netas to engage in a blame-game rather than solving the problem of terrorism. In fact, it has already become the game of the politicians where they can score maximum votes. Where the government of India has gone? Is it because the government has spent more time giving lip services? Or is it because the government has to balance its vote bank politics with terrorists? Sure, at this point of time, the people all over the country are not at all interested to know who is sacked from the Cabinet minister or who has become the new home minister. The country needs to hear what actual steps have been taken to tackle the terrorism. The political netas should apologize for failing to protect the lives of the common people. The country needs safety and security, not corrupt and inefficient government. In the Bible it is written, “When the David’s soldier saw Goliath, they all said, he is too big we can kill him. But David said, he is so big I can’t miss him”.

A Kama Sutra in NOIDA business school. It sounds funny, I suppose. But, going by the newspaper reports, arguably undeniable. A student circulates MMS clip of 23-year-old girlfriend after she refuses to continue her relationship with him. Still fresh yet, five years back a similar type of sex video clip was circulated by a Delhi school student broke the headlines. This time it’s has been reported from a premier business school in Noida. The video shows the woman stripping to music; the man apparently captured it on a cellphone camera. Is it a hot cake or breaking news? It’s certainly a matter of that school and college students are indulging in such deplorable activities. After...
This time Valentine’s Day, will undoubtedly be known as ‘Pink Saturday’. Probably historians will have something to write upon and we have something to laugh at. It does gonna to be a big fight between Pink Chaddis versus Pink Sarees. But, nobody seems winning the battle. Neither the Pink Chaddis, nor the Moral CEO-ship Promod Muthalik, achieving anything from this useless campaign. Nevertheless, it does could promote a brand name for moral brigade Muthalik as “Moral Guru”, rather than fighting against him. I do believe, at the moment it’s a high time to create massive awareness against moral policing or any act which takes away our freedom. But I do...
Let's sing it aloud. 'On your mark, get set...go'. Well, i am not talking about a marathon race. Voiceless, were they, when Mumbai was under seige by terrorists. The reason is very simple, they act the same way and there is nothing that distinguish them from terrorist activities. They called themselves "the brand ambassadors" of the Indian culture, who don't like to see women going to pubs. Yet, it's definitely a part of our culture - everyone loves socialisation because our culture has taught us so. Shameless, nothing worth than calling so, they cannot serve even their own mother who gave them life. Can they think of something worthwhile...? The answer is 100...

No doubt, India is not at Taliban state. We live in a democratic country where right to freedom of individual has been enshrined in the constitution and by law we are guaranteed to it. Infringement, in any form of this right is punishable by law. And every citizen is empowered to approach the judiciary for ascertaining his or her fundamental rights. The Sri Ram Sena activists of Mangalore, who shamelessly molested innocent girls is against this right to individual freedom. This sort of atrocity against women is not a new phenomenon in our country. Certainly, it does call for no substantiation to justify. The mushrooming of fundamentalist groups like the Bajrang Dal, Shiv Sena, and...

Who is responsible for such tragedy? Every passing year, the demographic landscape is turning into the hands of the illegal Banglashi settlers. Piece by piece they are pouring into the land of the local people. Why it so? Is the state government so caring to the unwanted guests? No wonder, reality is yet to come and we are all there to experience it. The illegal settlers will become the...
