Bengali Hindu refugees from East Bengal (later East Pakistan) sought shelter in #India after Partition 75 years ago.
The horrors of partition did not end; they continued as Nehru and his minions stripped us of our dignity and dehumanised us.
Millions of Bengali-speaking 'nowhere Hindus', uprooted from their land, reduced to penury, begging for food, were treated with spiteful contempt by Nehru and his minions. They hated Bengali Hindu refugees, and made their miserable lives worse.
Nehru and his minions put Bengali Hindu refugees in squalid 'Permanent Liability Camps'. They were given a few kilos of inedible rotten grains.
Later, like 'Labour Camps' in Hitler's Germany, these PL camps were renamed 'Work Camps'.

Thread on my last column for @mid_day lampooning Aamir Khan for his statement savaging #India 🇮🇳.
MidDay's editor wrote to me saying she had decided to drop me as a columnist. I wrote back, saying, Thank you.
Either she or MidDay or both were petrified of the Bwood Gang.
A young Cossack toiled hard, saved money, and bought a magnificent stallion at the Sunday horse bazar. He rode straight to the village square, where his fellow Cossacks would gather every Sunday evening for raucous drunken revelry, to show off his new horse.
A collective gasp was heard as the Cossacks gathered around: None had seen a more handsome stallion than this. Women clasped their hands and giggled; many eyed the young Cossack as a potential son-in-law or husband. A horse like that had made our man more than dashing.

India came very close to collapse and chaos after Rajiv Gandhi’s years of profligacy. VP Singh’s National Front Govt, followed by Congress-backed Chandra Shekhar’s non-Govt, took the tottering economy to the brink of disaster. PV Narasimha Rao rescued and resuscitated economy.
From pawning India’s gold to barely stay afloat, signing humiliating MoUs with IMF, and excising the canker of Nehruvian socialism, to a remarkable post-pandemic recovery and emerging as the fastest growing economy in a killer virus savaged world, #India has come a long way.
PM @narendramodi has set #India on a trajectory that can only take us higher. #AtmanirbharBharat is not just a slogan, it is the foundation of a resilient and resurgent India. The successful #COVID19 vaccine programme with no foreign help shows India can and shall surge ahead.

Chinese will feel bolstered by @JoeBiden openly stating commitment in #OneChina US Policy. So tighten your belts to witness more belligerence and aggressive postures from China in #IndoPacific. US allies must be in pain ! @india_narrative:
So are we a witness to the steady decline of United States Of America, its imposing economy, its power to influence world opinion & above all its capability and capacity to defend its interests at all costs. Has it not ceded space willingly to China despite no USSR ?
The steady decline of America a superpower, has many far reaching ramifications, both political and geographical within America & outside America too. Many a reasons added to the decline of US. Foremost was the decline & annihilation of its massive industry set up all across US.

There was no optimism in 1991 through 1996 on account of PV Narasimha Rao's reforms. Indian (crony) industry formed 'Bombay Club' to oppose pro-free market reforms. Unions were protesting in the streets. Harshad Mehta was scamming a fake bubble market. Inflation kept shooting.
Congress did not rally behind 1991 reforms. A Congress intellectual now close to Nehru Darbar had floated the line that the reforms would serve India's 'Coca-Cola Class'. Media went to town over undisclosed IMF conditionalities. Congress lost elections in State after State. 2n
To foist the claim that the 1991 reforms "spread optimism and hope across India" is a travesty. Had there been "optimism and hope" then Congress would not have lost the 1996 Lok Sabha election. Such bogus claims can be made because public memory is short. 3n
