Why is Rajnikanth Getting Trolled? Exploring the Reasons Behind the Criticism
As we all know, Superstar Rajnikant has become the latest target of the leftist ecosystem. His apparent crime? Bowing down to UP-CM Yogi Adityanath
A couple of days ago, Rajnikant visited Yogi Adityanath at his residence. Following this, a video of Rajnikant bowing down in front of Yogi Adityanath went viral.
Soon after, the toolkit gang started trolling him mercilessly. One handle commented, 'What a fall,' while a popular Kerala left-leaning handle tweeted a photo suggesting that 'equality' is when you shake hands with a person, and not when you bow down at someone’s feet.
Why do we greet a person with Namaskaram or Namaste?
Apart from showing respect to the other person, saying Namaskaram acknowledges the equality of all beings. It's a way of demonstrating respect to others regardless of their social status, background, or differences. Saying Namaskaram with both palms touching has several other spiritual reasons as well.

Who is Yogi Adityanath?
We all know that he is the CM of UP. But he is also the mahant (head priest) of Gorakhnath Matt in Gorakhpur, a monastery linked to the Nath tradition of Hinduism.
A Yogi in the Nath tradition refers to a practitioner who follows the path of yoga and meditation as a means of spiritual realization and self-discovery. Yogis in the Nath tradition are known for their emphasis on ascetic practices, physical postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), and meditation. They seek to achieve a state of union with the divine through their spiritual practices. The term "Yogi" signifies their commitment to the yogic path and their pursuit of inner transformation.

Raghuram Rajan is back! And I must say that he has remarkable ability to stay in the headlines. A couple of months ago, he was seen walking with India's "forever future PM" Rahul Gandhi, thereby openly displaying his loyalty to the Congress. #RaghuramRajan 1/4
According to him, India is dangerously close to what he calls the "Hindu rate of growth". This is a term coined by late Indian economist Raj Krishna to refer to the slow growth rate of India during 1950-1980. Why don't you call it the "Nehruvian rate of growth" Mr. Rajan?
