    Twitter Updates...

    Let’s use this thread to update interesting, entertaining & funny messages on twitter. Please follow forum guidelines wile posting your updates.
  2. TRS & BJD are “neutral” to NDA, if the need arises... BJP will lose more states like Haryana, Bihar and even Gujarat in coming years... BJP leadership became overconfident or maybe they know their fate is short lived in this country. After Modi there’s no leader to replace him... Yogi can’t even get BJP candidate win in his own constituency... he campaigned in Picchatisgah extensively and the results are there for everybody to see... Congress has a future leader in place, BJP hasn’t..
  3. No he understands.. he himself mentioned it... To Pakistanis @Alam_dar all I can say is that Muslims are not at all living in fear in India... prime example is that millions of Bangladeshis and Rohingiyas are trying every month to come to India... Given an option, they would rather fear to go and settle in Pakistan...they’ll rather take their chances in India...
  4. That’s where my problem is... Yes, please blame BJP/RSS for communalising but please don’t ignore various regional parties and Congress themselves patronising Muslims, giving them free hand, overlooking their atrocities on minority Hindus in those areas, just for vote Bank politics.. You see, Muslims vote en-block and not like fragmented Hindus... they are an asset to the secular parties... these so called secular parties allow these Muslim hardliners a free run... as if Hindu votes are for granted because they are fragmented... Most secular parties are actually very communal to Hindus in their own country... Just look at the promises made by TRS and Congress made to Muslims in Telangana elections..
  5. You are misinformed.. Please check the videos of recent Muslim congregation in Bulandshar.. Muslims certainly not living in fear in UP or any states... Rhey are living in most dabang way... If you say these Muslims are living in fear I cannot fathom how they’ll behave when they are “not living in fear”...
  6. I’ve realised that whatever BJP leaders say, they still prefer to have shadow boxing (Noora Kushti) with Congress as both willkeep in exchanging these states in various terms... in the process BJP takes the RW on occasional rides by making various promises... RW slowly realising it that BJP is taking them for a ride... Congress is more experienced in ruling the Country and BJP doesn’t has any ecosystem like Congress and doesn’t makes any efforts to make its own eco system...
  7. Fair enough.. however if you ignore the rise of fundamentalist Muslims in India, you’ll be living in fools paradise... BJP will fail but fundamentalist Muslims doing big rallies, creating trouble and actually persecuting Hindus in some deject states will finally tip over the mostly peaceful Hindus... that time is coming soon.. Remember Muslims are still safe in majority Hindu population.. Hiwever this cant be same vice versa when the Muslim population reaches the “desired” level. It’s fast approaching that stage now...
  8. Modi brought lots of hope for its core voters in 2014 and first 1 Year he was focusing on administration, performance of ministries and ministers etc. Somewhere he got bitten by “Vikaans” bug and started getting the hang of getting popular among NRIs and Western leaders... He was a born traveller. He really likes to travel... he works hard too (many hours a day). He and husvteam has done some fantastic development work. You have to give credit to him... Gadkari, Piyush have done good job in their ministries. Sushma too has done her bit... Rajnath “Kadi Ninda” Singh has done lots of good work in neutralising Naxal and Kashmir millitancy... However he’s some extremely incompetent ministers too, like Jaitley, Harshwardhan, Jawdekar etc... Jaitley has single handedly screwed up Modi & BJP.... The actual damage done by him will result in these losses. On top of it, Modi’s not being ruthless against Corrupt Gandhi’s & Vadras is now hurting him... it’s too late to go after them now... Now you’ve your two top CBI officers fighting like cats... how unfortunate it is for Modi & BJP?
  9. Chhattisgarh (and now PiChhattisgarh) almost went to Congress in the last elections too. Raman Singh somehow managed to save it last time but this time the game was over, however BJP/RSS didn’t revealed it so that not to discourage the RW... Rajasthan alternates between two parties in every term.. Raje was was very unpopular and BJP took a huge gamble backing her. Paid the price now... MP is a surprise result and Mama (Shivraj) has done lots of work and is popular too...But SC/ST act, angry middle class & farmers screwed up BJP.. Youve to understand the new generation are more politically aware and 15 years under BJP which they grew up creates anti-incubancy for BJP... Muslims vote in a block to Congress even if RaGa proclaims himself as more Hindu than Modi... But BJP is still hanging there...
  10. @Muloghonto Comunal politics still works in Hindi heartland... maybe you missed Congress leaders videos leaking mentioning about Muslim votes, RaGa mentioning his gotra, visiting temples and Tibet, trying to beat BJP in its own game... Theres have been more riots during Congress rules than BJP rule but people love to blame BJP only.
  11. Hi all... Was taking a break from cricket... After BJP losing 3 states, thinking of taking break from Indian politics... Everybody is harsh on Modi & BJP... Even I’m very angry too... However I’ll put my views one by one.
  12. A post containing the names of 60 Indian academicians from colleges all over the country, who have been accused of sexual harassment has been doing the rounds on Facebook. It has been created by Raya Sarkar, who describes herself as an "attorney interested in prisoner's rights, reproductive rights, and anti-caste jurisprudence" in her bio. Apart from Koushik Roy, Bidyut Chakraborty, Nilanjan Dutta, RC Natrajan, Shyamal Sengupta, Mridul Bose, and BN Ray, Firstpost has not been able to independent verify whether a complaint has been filed, registered, or any charges have been filed against the rest of the academicians whose names have been included in this list. Sarkar has invited other women to contribute to the list, which has now grown to this figure of 60 names of professors who work in institutions like Jawaharlal Nehru University, Tata Institute of Social Sciences and Film and Television Institute of India. As of 25 October, this list included more than 10 professors from Jadavpur University, nine from Delhi University and two from JNU. It also has names from Christ University, Ambedkar University Delhi and the Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute. "If any one knows of academics who have sexually harassed/were sexually predatory to them or have seen it first hand PM me and I'll add them to the list," writes Sarkar in her post. She says that she has a full list of the names of victims too, but that she will not reveal it. She also said that one of the victims will be filing an internal complaint soon. She has written that the purpose of the list is to make people wary of these professors. "This list is not for their colleagues chai biscuit gossip or some kind of crusade to get them kicked out of their Universities because if that were actually possible they would be long gone," she writes. Every time a commenter has expressed disbelief over the appearance of a particular name in the list, Sarkar has maintained that the accusations were confirmed by multiple sources who have reported instances to her directly. "Most if not all are first person accounts of people who were molested/sexually harassed by the people who have been put on this list. Rest are a friend they (the victims) have chosen to specifically contact me as they fear their identity being disclosed. In fact, since there is a disturbing amount of rape apologia and victim blaming the victims have gone out of their way to show me screenshots of them being harassed and abused by the people they have named," writes Sarkar in a comment on the post. Firstpost spoke to one of the academicians on the list, who wishes to be anonymous, and asked him to respond to these allegations. "My name was dropped and then added again. When I reached out to her, I was blocked. If she believes in freedom of speech, why isn't she telling me what I've done? I am feeling like a victim," he said. Some people and organisations have supported Sarkar and the list. Kafila, which publishes pieces on contemporary issues authored by Indian academics, scholars, writers and journalists, has released an official statement about this list, condemning it. The authors have said that naming people in this manner can "delegitimise" the fight against sexual harassment and have appealed to the people behind this list to withdraw it. "We are dismayed by the initiative on Facebook, in which men are being listed and named as sexual harassers with no context or explanation. One or two names of men who have been already found guilty of sexual harassment by due process, are placed on par with unsubstantiated accusations. It worries us that anybody can be named anonymously, with lack of answerability," reads the statement. It has been signed by 14 women who identify themselves as feminists. These women include Ayesha Kidwai and Nivedita Menon, who are professors at JNU; Kavita Krishnan, an activist and secretary of the All India Progressive Women's Association (AIPWA); and Vrinda Grover, a lawyer and human and women's rights activist. They go on to say that when there is a genuine complaint filed, there are institutions and procedures which must be made use of, whilst acknowledging that the process is "harsh and often tilted against the complainant". They say that they are committed to due process, which they term 'fair and just'. Firstpost has mailed Raya Sarkar a set of questions, but is yet to receive a reply. This article will be updated with her responses when she does.

    Champions Trophy all over again?

    Not sure how much money the Betting Mafia will make tonight... If you notice sudden and drastic change in players performances and strange decision by captain, rest assured that the match outcome has already been decided at the very top level. No point blaming the players as they have to follow orders. If you see Bangladesh makeshft openers making a century stand, best is to not increase your BP, just dont follow the match and do something useful... :nice:
  15. This is not a topic and credit to England for outclassing India in the test series... However, I’ve noticed that umpires have been exceedingly harsh on Indian team and players throughout the series, be it using like a group of errand boys to ask bat during rain interruption to bow Ishant being given 2 “ final warnings” for landing, albeit “marginally and occasionally”,in the danger area of pitch where as Holding pointed out that Clouderson actually bowls landing in the danger area day in & out! Hence I’m asking you to suggest more ways and means to the ICC umpires to treat this Indian team worse than a 3rd class asylum seekers...
  16. We really want an off spinner who can keep things simple but bowls potent orthodox off spin with discipline. We need somebody on whom we can rely for a long time, now that Ashwin has gone downhill... Please suggest some good upcoming young options...
  17. Moeen Ali picking 9 wickets and our fat arse Constipated Donkey got one wicket...
  18. From 86/6 to on the brink of winning the match in the 4th day... Mashallah! Ali keeps of taking wickets... And we’ve a fat arse veshti wearing constipated idiot...
  19. As I said, I’ve no favourite players... Anybody who shows temperament or skills to justify selection, I’ll support hm...
  20. He’s very straight forward... not sure if he spins a lot.. Need somebody who can give a good tweak...but can be tried... Somebody like Rajesh Chauhan...
  21. Don’t want to even check the scores as instead of score the wickets column keeps Changing...
  22. Team India actually discusses which opposition bowler they’ve to TARGET in the innings to DONATE most of the wickets...
  23. The World didn’t wanted a boisterous Bewda claiming all the credits, hence the team secretly decided to screw him in...

    Will KL Rahul make it count in the 2nd innings?

    Next test is anyway gone for him... I actually don’t want to see him in test cricket... I’m sure there’ll be other young players who’ll grab the chance and excel...
