There are exhortations to instil in us pride in our ancient culture - but there is little understanding of the openness of mind which has made the culture great and allowed it to flourish over centuries, recreating and regenerating itself after every phase when the lights became dim and feeble.

When we don't have good men among our cadres, what should we do?
We should paint Ravanas as Ramas.

On February 27, 1948, Vallabhbhai Patel, India’s first home minister, wrote to Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru: “It was a fanatical wing of the Hindu Mahasabha directly under Savarkar that [hatched] the conspiracy [to kill Gandhi] and saw it through.”

Section 295A IPC is a draconian law, which should be struck out as it's only used to make sure that status quo where religion is considered to be above law in this country or even freedom of expression stays.

No one can stop anyone from believing that they themselves or someone they know is a god, but one has to wonder whether their belief in their “god” is so fragile that they can’t take any criticism of the said god? If anyone has seen MSG – Messenger Of God, they would realise that the good godman seems to be cocking a snook at himself. After all, he can’t seriously believe he can fly through the skies or spend summers in India wearing sparkly and stretchy lycra sleeveless t-shirts and capris, right? It beats me how the humour of his cinema has escaped his followers.

Mere saluting the bodies of the martyrs isn't enough, we need to train solders to prevent avoidable deaths..

the fact that the vehicle managed to enter the Pathankot air force station unchallenged is nothing short of criminal negligence. This is particularly so in light of the fact that the authorities in Pathankot were informed that a senior police officer's car with a revolving blue light on its roof had been taken over by possible terrorists.

Although a little biased but filled with facts.

In addition, there have been problematic political moves such as bans on various activities; policy-making through the use of ordinances; central directive to clear forest land permission for Adani’s power project in Maharashtra; reinstatement of a suspended accused IPS officer in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case by the Gujarat BJP government, reinstatement of another IPS officer accused in the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case by the Rajasthan BJP government; successful recommendation to the Supreme Court of lawyer Uday Lalit (who represented Amit Shah in criminal cases) after the rejection of Gopal Subramaniam (who had assisted the government in the Sohrabbudin Sheikh case); considering P Sathasivam for appointment – contested by lawyers since he isn’t just the former Chief Justice of India but also a BJP appointed Governor of Kerala – as chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission; the passing of a bill to change the law and allow the appointment of former head of a regulatory body (Nripendra Mishra, retired telecom regulator) to the Prime Minister’s Office as Principal Secretary after retirement.
