@RahulGandhi: India Needs You !

#Nehru: His great grandpa chanted #HindiChiniBhaiBhai and lost miles and miles of Indian land to China. He claimed, "Not a blade of grass grows there." He lost Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to Pakistan and turned Kashmir into hell on earth.
(1/N) #IndiraGandhi: His grandmother was planted as PM of India by USSR by eliminating Lal Bahadur Shastri. It was KGB that lorded over India during all those years of the Iron Lady's rule. Emergency was clamped USSR backing and Indira did not utter one word against interference.

#National_Unemployment_Day

@INCIndia, #Communists, Liberals, Intellectuals, Church groups and Islamists are trending National Unemployment Day on PM @narendramodi's birthday. The media aligned with the Ecosystem is playing it up. But we cannot fault them.

The Bollywood Intellectuals aren't getting whopping subsidies for their Anti-India movies anymore. How can they produce more such movies ?

#Blind_Hero_Worship_is_Disastrous_for_the_Nation

"This is ridiculous. Hero worship has sunk to insane depths. Modi-maniacs have turned him into a cult hero and they have become a cult. This is disastrous for the ordinary people, democracy and the nation."
#HappyBdayNaMo
(1/N) Image Seeing these kind of messages. Lots of them today. Some even posted on my wall. A little trespassing on the walls of these people turned into a bender-reveal party. I could see the which way they bend and their cults too.

#Congress_Truly_National_Party

People might criticize #Congress and its leadership for the miserable numbers when it comes to seats the party has won in recent years. But nobody can deny @INCIndia is the only one party that is truly national and centrist like #RahulGandhi.
(1/N) Numbers don't tell the real story. Actions speak louder than words.

Congress in Bihar joined issues in #JusticeForSSR and demanded #CBIforSSR.

Moving eastward, Congress in West Bengal hit the roads in support of 'Bengali Brahmin' girl Rhea Chakraborty.

#Rahul_Gandhi: #The_True_Centrist

A Tribute to @RahulGandhi

The world is progressively getting divided between the Right and Left with each side getting more vicious than the other. Best example is the Rhea and Kangna story.
(1/N) Image While the Left is backing Rhea and rejoicing at Kangna's plight, the right is doing the exact opposite. Every issue has a Leftist view and Rightist view. The Center seems to have vanished. The moderate view appears to be lost in the clash of partisanship.

#Happy_Onam: The Myths and the Truth

Ever since I came to Kerala in January 1995, I have been told, Onam is celebration of Mahabali, fondly called Maveli by Malayalees. It is my 26th Onam in Kerala and the Leftist distortion of Onam has gone to the levels of...

@INCIndia: #The_Bakers_Dozen_Names

Supporters of #IndianNationalCongress claim, their party gave India the freedom at midnight. They know not the fact that the INC underwent several episodes of fission throughout the post Independence period.
#Part1 Image Original Congress had "Tricolor with Charkha" as the flag from 1931 to 1947. After 1947, it was given up as Congress became a political party from a freedom movement.

Nehru's Congress had "Two bullocks with a plough" as the symbol from 1952.

#Father_Son_and_Holy_Ghost

It is birth anniversary of the original #RaGa. #RajivGandhi was born on 20th August. I am inspired to write this after looking at Congress relaunching Rahul in Rajiv mood with a new wig and new set of artificial dentures.
#Part1 Image Rajiv wasn't just original RaGa. He was the original Pappu too. What Rahul is doing today for the BJP, Rajiv began that process in 1985. He laid the foundation stone for the phenomenal growth of #BJP from two seats to 330 plus.

#Bengaluru_Burning: #Unleashing #Sadak2

There are Hindus defending this guy called Naveen who purportedly posted a slanderous post against the Prophet of one religion, because someone from that religion posted an obnoxious message against Gods of his religion.
#Part1 Let me place a rough statistic here. There are no less than 5,000 Pages on Facebook and no less than 2 Million Facebook accounts posting obnoxious stuff against Hindus, Hindu Gods and India. There are Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Indians in these groups.
