The alleged exPM Manmohan Singh wrote an unsolicited letter to PM Modi in which he urged PM to allow the import of USmade vaccines.This despite the fact that India manufactures 60% of the world's vaccines and is best equipped to mobilize economies of scale to increase production.
Remember that GoI pays just INR 160 per vaccine. Contrast this with the US where the Big Pharma is paid between $ 38 and $ 93 per vaccine - that after the government funded R&D and trials.
The effect of Manmohan Singh's advocacy would be that American vaccines are imported and sold at exorbitant price in India while reinforcing the myth that they're superior to Indian-invented and manufactured vaccines - a myth the Congress party has disseminated.
It has been alleged that Manmohan Singh was the one who revealed Indias secret plan to test nukes in the 90s to the Americans.That delayed India's test by a few years. America imposed sanctions and hurt India. Now he wants to hurt India even more by paying for USA-made vaccines.
He can rebut this charge by writing a letter to POTUS Biden advising him to send vaccines to India at INR 160 per vaccine! :-)

Manmohan Singh has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been admitted to AIIMS. Grapevine has it that the doctors have successfully isolated the virus. They're reasonably confident that the contact with MMS hasn't made the virus less virulent, impotent, or servile.
Not leaving anything to chances, the doctors placed the virus they had extracted from MMS in a vial next to a person who chanted, "Sat Sri Akal!" The virus showed no interest in that person.
The vial containing the virus was placed next to a taxi driver and a truck driver who proudly proclaimed that they've applied for asylum in Canada. The virus ignored them too.

This is heartening.

Have you been told that Gautama Buddha was a great social reformer? Did they tell you that he stood against the “oppressive” caste system? Were you also taught that Buddhism was an egalitarian movement that rose against the tyranny of the Brahmins? Yes?
Well, I have some news for you, you decide if it is good or bad. What you’ve been told about the Buddha is patently untrue.

A popular meme of 20th-century caste politics in India is the image of Gautama Buddha as some kind of a social reformer.
Bhimrao Ambedkar, the man who was instrumental in popularizing this rather misinformed narrative, once said,

“The rise of Buddhism in India was as significant as the French Revolution”.

ABC s of building a Church community form scratch...

Let me walk you through the steps as to how a church is set up in a small basti/ slum/ gudem/ hamlet... whatever we call it.

1. A pastor and his family moves into that locality.
They genuinely connect with a 4-5 people and find out all about them... all as in all.

2. They look for any stress points in that family and are waiting for a calamity to hit the family and the pastor and his family are there within seconds to do whatever it takes to help them
The distressed family gets out of the situation and the pastor suggests that the family have a "thanksgiving" prayer in the house .

3. All friends and relatives are invited for this "thanksgiving" prayer.

To all Sanghi Friends on Social Media who uncompromisingly work against anti-Hindu propaganda and keep supporting the BJP,

What you are doing today, Shri Arjun Sampath has been doing on the ground for decades. Image
Why is it that the BJP, NDA or AIADMK have never given him the due importance, even though he is working tirelessly on TV, in social media and on the ground?
He supports the same Hindu causes that you do, wears the same vibhuti and kumkumam that you do and keeps working to spread awareness of the same Hindu narrative that you are trying to create?
