Aligarh University practices gender discrimination
It is shocking to know that the Central university of Aligarh practices gender discrimination. It does not allow its female students to enter a library situated inside the university campus on the plea that girl students' presence will attract crowds of boy students. This discrimination is ridiculous and is more condemnable especially when the Vice Chancellor of the university is an ex- Army officer, a Lieutenant General. Did he inherit such discriminatory trends from his original employer, the army ? It happens when the concerned Central Minister under PM Modi is herself a woman. Will Chancellor, the Minister, the Prime Minister and the hon'ble President of India should intervene and stop such gender discrimination? Will the socialists, leftists, rightists, centrists, secularists, communalists, religionists, media , academics, moralists, social reformers , women- rightists, human rightists and hundreds of the careerist NGOs agitate and try to eliminate the gender based discrimination at least in a prestigious university established by an Anglo Indian statesman scholar of very high academic merits? Such a move will demolish the mindset that promotes gender based discrimination.

Is there anybody, a politician, a news paper editor, a highly literate person or a common man who can authentically say that India will not be a Muslim country or another Pakistan in next sixty to seventy years. Even after converting half of India in to Pakistan Hindus are still worshipping the minorities in the guise of so-called secularism. The population of Muslims is increasing with such a pace that they have raised from eight per cent to twenty per cent. There is no reason that they will not outnumber Hindus in another sixty or seventy years. Muslims have now only one target in India and that is to increase their population and rule over India. Hindus have remained slave for five hundred years and when they finally got freedom after sacrificing half of India they got involved in earning money and are still busy in their selfish ends i.e. to run after money and power. Hinduism is meaningless for them. Time is not too far when Hindus will not have a single inch of land in the whole world despite of the fact that it is probably the oldest religion in the world. Is there any solution to this problem? Yes there is but it is very difficult.The government should bring about the family control programme with two children norm. Though it is difficult , but when China can bring one child norm why can’t India.

Frustration is creeping in Congress
The news that the Congress is anxious to celebrate Jawaharlal’s birthday by organising international conferences on different days, keeping out Shri Narendra Modi and his colleagues clearly shows the petty jealousy and frustration the party is suffering from after the humiliating defeat in the 2014 elections. Channeling the mood of the children on a wrong path that too on Pt. Nehru’s birthday shows how deep hatred turning in to a festering sore in the minds of the Congress is yet to heal. They have not come out of the ignominious defeat they suffered in the elections not realising that it is hard to retrieve or rebuild their credibility. But to vent it on children’s day shows the meanness of the Congress . The Congress is living in a fool’s paradise if they think that they can embarrass BJP by not inviting the PM. On the other hand they are spewing personal venom among young children the builders of future Bharat , which is wrong.

Not only memorials to Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi's birth place in Kashi and of Rani Chennamma of Kittur in Belgaum district of Karnataka; the haveli of 29 days emperor of Hindusthan, Hemchandra Vikramaditya at Rewari, Haryana is in lamentable ruins.
