Just fyi, personally, I'm close to turning veg because of the cruelty factor. Practically doing so is not as easy however. Might trigger anytime though.

What i cannot digest (pun not intended) is people imposing their views on others and murdering for it. Which is the very point of this thread.

@meetdilip you seem to be calming down. Keep it up :)

I don't get it. A lot of the domestic terror accused like the sadhvi and purohit are walking free. Either the ATS messed up badly and framed all of them for no reason or the govt. in power is gradually helping their 'agents' get out of jail, courtesy the NIA.

Dr. Rapist's bhakts are rioting and burning things but remember, JNU protesters are anti-nationals.

I wonder how many cult leaders are in it to **** a bunch of women... 95% seems like a conservative estimate.

LOL mass self immolation. I say let them. More Darwinian culling at it's best...

As a wise man once said, human stupidity has no limits.

If its just self immolation, let them all do that. I don't mind all and would be happy that the average IQ of the country increases by a small fraction, but they are rioting and destroying public property. They need to be stopped even if it means shooting them down.

Yeah, once again, these guys fit the dictionary definition of terrorist. They should be treated as such.

More to do with character rather than priority.

Which is why i can't digest statements people make about the pm having good intentions. History speaks volumes...

P.s. no idea what you're taking about actually, haven't been following Tharoor. Links please, if you don't mind...

Completely agree about voters not making emotional decisions.

Not sure if Tharoor is our savior

Poorly trained teachers can still force some things by rote learning/memorization. I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that otherwise smart seeming kids in my neighbourhood couldn't do fractions even in 9th standard thanks to the new system coupled with inept teachers.

Before 2014

Global Crude Oil Rates: HIGH
Petrol Prices in India: HIGH
Rage against the UPA2: HIGH

Now

Global Crude Oil Rates: Very Low
Petrol Prices in India: STILL HIGH
Rage against the BJP: LOL, what rage?

In some ways I think they've forgotten the lesson the country taught the Congress. Hopefully enough people have realised the fakeness of this government & teach them the same lesson in 2019

I hope so but wouldn't bet on it. More likely that they will get even more seats than before. Also, these new legislation are not going to be rolled back when a different party comes to power anyway.

Then we only have ourselves to blame. If people repeat the same mistake again.. they deserve what they get.

1. Opposed Aadhaar in opposition.. now have weaponised it
2. Opposed every fuel price hike during Congress rule.. now it's the highest under them. They coined the term economic terrorism.. well they're setting new standards in economic terrorism themselves.
3. Promised to bring down costs of daily living.. Costs have only increased.
4. Promised to bring back massive amounts of black money... Got zilch
5. Wanted to name & shame black money hoarders .. haven't done crap so far
6. Got people to surrender LPG connections etc... LPG cylinders are priced so high right now, those in genuine need can't afford it!
7. Wanted to lower tax burden on common man.. only f***** made it worse.
8. Promised uniform taxation under GST.. ended up with a multi slab nightmare.
9. Promised maximum governance minimum government... Rofl... Joke.
10. Promised demonetisation to achieve destruction of black money.. sorry terrorism funding.. nope, meant digital transaction push.. actually.. to achieve... Aah fuk it.. can't think of any more bullshit they justified it with.

In short.. promised acche din.. delivered GHANTA

The unstoppable and tenacious push with Aadhar is an example of how these things are beyond party politics. However, we would have seen a way more resistance against this were Congress or the 3rd front make these last few moves but BJP propaganda machine is a true juggernaut.

This.

A friend of mine is a huge Modi/Bjp supporter. The combined effects of the demon... and now GST forced him to shut down his businesses. He isn't singing their praises as much now...

Nothing is gonna happen. They're gonna win again. And abuse and exploit the people even more. Things are gonna get way WAY worse. Just wait for it. The rational few are being silenced, one way or the other. Ditto media. Ditto good cops. I think a nuke from NK would be a blessing now.

I don't anticipate things improving for the common man on the ground anytime soon. Fuel prices are the perfect indicators of that - at a time when crude oil prices are among the lowest in the past decade, we're paying the highest. And yet there are people who are lapping it up.

Yes, BJP will quite possibly win again. The problem is there is no one in the opposition that has managed to project a strong image in the media. Most of the work during 2014 was the way Modi/BJP sort of projected their image in the media and after 2 terms of UPA, they picked out the issues that resonated with the middle class. It's a bit like Trump in US.

At this time, I think the best case scenario for us is a reduced majority for the BJP in the Lok Sabha. In the Rajya Sabha, they have a majority and will improve their strength in numbers based on their performance in UP. It's going to very interesting few years indeed.
