of Hyderabad, Rajpramukh as a reward for his refusal to join India and for getting killed hundreds of Hindus by Razakars, and sent Maharaja Hari Singh to exile who was very keen for accession to India.

A last chance
An apt adage when you hear the speeches being made for the coming 2014 elections. The leaders with tongue in the cheek talk haranguing about clean corrupt free governance while behind our backs squirreling away illegal money in Switzerland. Some of the speeches are like a shopper’s list offering goodies like food security bills and twelve gas cylinder etc. Election fever has raised the temperature of RaGa who is passing offensive remaks about narendra Modi. As a responsible citizens of Bharat. It is the last chance for us to vote for NaMo for our hope and future lies in him.

Delhi court forces penguin to withdraw Doniger’s The Hindus: An Alternative History
(Organiser, 23.2.2014); It is quite amazing as to how a renowned and a respectable publisher like Penguin Books (India) Published a book of the most astonishing kind, The Hindus—An Alternative history by Wendy Doniger. True, writers in the west do published the most disgusting accounts of sexual aberrations and other shameless indulgences of their outstanding historical figures and present day unique personalities. In the absence of such ‘thrilling’ accounts of our historical figures the western money-spinning writers make up stories about Asian historical figures which is most outrageous. We are not a banana republic to tolerate such arrant nonsense. Let eminent writers of our country warn publishers that they will have to pay heavily if they indulge in such intolerable low level perversion. Let them stew in their own juice in their own country of origin. Keep off Bharat.

Aam Aadmi’s failure: A lesson to India
(Organiser, 16.3.2014); This refers to the article title ‘Aam Admi’s failure: A lesson to India’ by MV Kamath in Organiser. By winning the elections, forming his party Government and immediately withdrawing, Arvind Kejriwal has made a fun of Indian democracy. I believe no sooner he became the Chief Minister of Delhi, perhaps he realised that running a Government is not that easy as winning elections. If he would have been a responsible citizen of this county, he would not have run away this way, but faced the hurdles and worked for a good governance and shown a standing example. His only escaping will only show his lack of self-confidence and incapableness in running a Government. The people have elected him in hope that he will give them a good governance but this way by evading his responsibilities and playing political gimmicks he thinks that he has added feather to his political cap but in fact he has betrayed and fooled his voters.
