  1. 600 meters. Well Azaan is not a bhaijaan who would catch an uber and reach Sonu's house through road. I am sure Air Distance would be less and anyway 600 meters is not such a big distance that early morning loudspeaker noise won't disturb. Try some other justification please.
  2. Ramesh Srivats‏ @rameshsrivats I don't see why anyone should get offended by Sonu Nigam's tweet Unless they belong to a religion that for some reason worships loudspeakers
  3. Thank you. I will try to post more.
  4. Alternative? What alternative? Isn't BJP an alternative to Congress? It seems people think that they live in a fairyland where everything is in black and white. Suppose there is an alternative party which is pro development ( I seriously don't know how do you calculate development) but if there is and Rahul Gandhi plus Amit Shah joins that party at leadership positions what will happen? Will the party still remain great alternative? Then again one day you will see some media reports, watch ndtv, times now and you will say "yaar maza nahi aaya" let's have another alternative. Parties do not run on their own, there are few individuals who run it. There are two ideology on which parties are formed, left or right. India is such a huge and diverse country that only one ideology won't work so whoever comes into power either at state level or central level tries to balance out both. For eg: Samajwadi Party in UP is ideologically a left leaning party but most of the things it did like creating Eways, Metro by taking lands of farmers were more right centric approach. Bjp on the other hand seen as right wing party has been leaning more towards social schemes like Ujjawala, farmers loan waiver. In the end both parties did exactly opposite to what they are perceived. The reason being as soon as they get power they know running government is a different ball game. But they cannot afford to loose core voters who brought them to power hence this act of balancing out which sometimes create embarrassing situations for them. Most of the parties in India to come out of this conflict between core voters and practically governing people take out a way. That way is make one individual personality larger than life and show him like Messiah. Hence we have Modi, Jaylalitha, Mulayam, Gandhi's etc. Bottom line, after 1991 ie when we opened economy almost all the government from Rao to Vajpayee to MMS to Modi or even Devigouda followed same economic policies. And after implementation of Mandal commission in 1989, almost all parties have followed same socialistic policies. What alternative will do? I don't know. Yes implementation of policy wise this government has been much better than previous ones. So no need of one more party but a tight vigilance on individuals who are running the party is what is needed.
  5. You have not stopped being political analyst yet. I remember your thread 3 and half years back predicting number of seats in 2014 elections and your quote "Even Sonia's dog will be able to defeat Modi". Politics is not your cup of tea sir :).
  6. I belong to the city of Gorakhpur. I had spent almost 20 years of my life there and from last 3 years again got chance to visit my home town very frequently. Before Yogi got elected 5 times from this city it was his guru Mahant Awaidhnath who was MP from here twice. I am not sure there is any other city of India may be apart from Gandhinagar which from 1991 has in each and every election elected BJP MP. During 80's Gorakhpur was always Congress Bastion, Veer Bahadur Singh, two time CM belonged to this city. Interestingly Veer Bahadur was the person who actually persuaded Rajeev Gandhi to reopen Babri masjid in Ayodhya and started Pooja of Lord Ram. People have voted here on religious line always even when they voted for Congress. There is a reason which I noticed while growing up and it was that Muslim areas of this city used to be very unsafe for non muslims. I remember I was always told not to go to Ghosipurwa, Bada Imambada, Ismailpur etc as even if a child of these areas got hurt accidentally by some one other than muslim community he was killed mercilessly. There was terror of these places and in 1992 after babri mosque demolition things got worse. Hindus were not sure when and what could happen to them. It was then the Mutt of Gorakhnath temple decided to enter into politics. Atleast till 2003 elections people used to vote on basis of hindutva but slowly things started to change as rightly mentioned by the driver with whom you got chance to talk. Adityanath raised lots of issues in parliament, he played big role in construction of few flyovers. He is lucky to get Modi as PM in 2014 who gave him and the city reward of opening AIIMS and also reopening Fertilizer. Lot of development related to Central government have started which are now visible. Ujjawalla yojana was the real game changer for Mr Modi, women of villages have voted for him as the ladies have got gas cylinders. Triple Talaq also played a role in getting few muslim women votes. So all in all Hindutva along with development and good intention of Mr Modi was the reason why BJP won the election.
  7. So as per Congress IB head was lying,former NSA is lying, Home Secretary is lying, under secretary is lying. I would have somehow accepted Congress even with corruption but playing with nation security no.
  8. Most of the Kishore Kumar songs are big hit but this one somehow never got its due. This was the best song sung by Kishore Da IMO A0koT3cYK5A
  9. Some of my favorite hindi songs are the one which have been really less appreciated, like this song from Pooja Bhatt movie Tamanna, Ye aaine jo tumhe kam pasand karte hain. Even the Youtube video is not aware as to from which movie this song is: d1BpZuY7rRY
  10. Keeping the disturbing trend of politicians making ridiculous statements about sexual assault alive, a senior leader of Communist Party of India (CPI) Atul Anjan said that Sunny Leone's condom advertisements will lead to a rise in the number of rapes in India.
  11. Bingo. The reason for my not posting is same, the only difference is, I would have quoted the idiotic post above Mishrajee too. Just to somehow prove that I am sensible and not biassed poster. Regularly using the word cheergirls for huge percentage of population of this country and most of the members of this forum never raised your eyebrow. What Mishrajee did was just Action & Reaction.
  12. If instead of Arvind Kejriwal, it was Mr Modi or someone from BJP who would have tweeted the congratulations on renaming of the road, I can bet this would have been one of the bolckbuster of all the threads in this forum. Both Modi and Kejriwal trolled everyone even liberals are not sure kiska side lein.

  14. Infrastructure wise Noida and Greater Noida are already Smart. Both the cities are well planned and any government will have to do less work when compared to others for making them fully smart city in future. I am very disappointed to see none of the Eastern UP cities in the list except Varanasi. That area desperately needs proper urban planning.
