ANILBHAI IS NO ORDINARY MEHULBHAIYYA!
I think the relentless pursuit of Anil Ambani by Chinese state owned banks has pissed off Modi more than the PLA occupation of Indian territory in Ladakh. Anilbhai is no ordinary Mehulbhaiyya in Modis scheme of things. He is the
central figure in the Rafale deal, as a Frenchman said - the man who whispered into the horse's ear!

Asked why Anil Ambani was chosen as the offsets partner for Rafale, an unnamed French official reportedly said: "Il fallait un homme qui puisse sussurer
dans l'oreille du cheval." We needed a man (a jockey) who could whisper into the horse's ear."

Anilbhai maybe a non-smoker, but he is the smoking gun. He is the man who also whispered into the ears of Frances Gayet, then French President Francois

How should one model one's life?

How about modeling you life on the life of a tree?

A tree spreads its branches far and wide. Takes water and sunlight from nature. Even before it emerges from the soil to the surface, it has started to
spread its roots deep into the surface. Its roots work to extract water from the soil and provide anchor to the stem that slowly rises out of the surface.

The roots cooperate and collaborate with other nearby roots to share their resources when the others are in
trouble. They form a network that is cooperative.

The stem rises and sprouts leaves. The roots send water and nutrients to these leaves and they use the sunshine to produce food for the entire tree. The tree rises and spreads to capture as much sunshine as possible. It competes

Do you have a smart phone? A phone with a good camera in your pocket?

If so, then you are a 'change-agent'. All you need to do is to use the 'instrument-of-change', yes, your camera in the mobile, to bring the 'real' India to .
the citizens of India.

Citizens of India, especially those that live in the cities are completely disconnected with 'Bharat' that constitutes more than 80% of India. They don't understand 'hunger', 'poverty', 'malnutrition', 'infant mortality', 'lack of
toilets', 'lack of water supply for drinking purposes' and many more such things that make the life of Bharat a daily struggle.

They think that the world begins and ends with their own world where everything is available and plenty. Where they go hungry only if they want to shed

Pakistan was and is an idea. An idea that Muslims were, are and will be unsafe in a Hindu majority country.

To kill that vile idea, all that was required was a secure, educated, and happy Indian Muslim with a fair share of the
economic cake. No Babri, No Gujarat, No Love Jihad, No Gau Raksha, , No Stereotyping, No Communal Cleansing, No Persecution. No Jingoism.

Had it been so, Kashmiri would have loved to be with India...and the failed idea of Pakistan would have ceased to exist.
But unfortunately, the very opposite happened and still continues to happen. The untenable ideas of a Hindu Rashtra and an Islamic State have always fed on each other. They need each other. They are manifestations of the same erroneous thought...that religion and

GOOD QUESTION FROM POONAWALLA FOR MODI
Since the government will be the biggest if not the only customer for the Covidvax's being developed and validated, it must show the solvency for the Financial Instititions to fund the producers.
Apart from the vaccine cost, india will need a seamless Cold Chain from factory to clinic. Since the vaccines will need more than one shot within the prescribed time, a flawless recording keeping and tracking system must be maintained. Vaccines will have to be
delivered in the deepest and farthest places in india, which means refrigerated vehicles. The refrigeration systems needed will require production work now. The lab quality freezers are not the kind of freezers used to store Amul butter and Vadilal ice creams Modiji.
