Goddess Saraswati: One Deity who binds entire East Asia

In the ancient times, India’s influence spilled far beyond the restrictive borders that currently restrain her.

Caste Politics is going to be BJP’s Enemy Number 1 in 2019

2018 hasn’t exactly brought good tidings for the BJP. The new year saw a new push to peddle caste based identities, putting different communities on a collision course. The aftermath of the violence at Koregaon Bhima resulted in widespread arson across Maharashtra and an unprecedented shutdown in Mumbai. The events in Maharashtra should put the […]

3 Reasons why, It will be impossible for the BJP to repeat the 2014 Feat in 2019 General Elections

In the aftermath of yesterday’s election victories in Gujarat and Himachal, BJP strategists will now begin to set their eyes on doing a 2014 redux in the Lok Sabha elections slated for 2019. In spite of obvious similarities between 2014 & 2019, for instance Modi’s unwavering popularity, there are major differences between the two electoral […]

NGT’s Ban on “Bells and Chants” inside Amarnath Shrine reeks of a greater conspiracy

One constant theme of 2017 has been the seemingly deliberate attempts to attack rites and observances of Hindu community in this nation. If last year saw Bihar banning Hawans to prevent fire accidents, this year saw a ‘great leap forward’ in unmatched eccentricities and idiosyncrasies of powers that be. If you thought banning firecrackers to […]

Gujarat Elections: This is why PM Modi Accused Congress of Hobnobbing with Pakistan

Those familiar with Indira Gandhi’s era would remember how often the word ‘foreign hand’or ‘Videshi shaktiyan’ was deployed for sinister effect.

The Ever-Changing Religious Affiliations of Rahul Gandhi are going to Cost Congress dearly in Gujarat

Savarkar had once prophesied that Congress workers would have worn their sacred thread over their jackets, if it could help them win elections. It now seems that Savarkar’s prophecy is coming true. For the first time in recent memory, Congress is vying with the BJP to prove that it is as ‘Hindu’ as its electoral […]

My People! Go Defeat the Nationalists (BJP) in Gujarat – appeals Gandhinagar Archbishop

Sometime in the beginning of this year, in the year of our lord, 2017, India’s Supreme Court had outlawed seeking votes in the name of religion.

Congress’s Offensive Tweet about PM Modi will give BJP a Big Boost in Gujarat Elections

Who should the BJP credit for its mammoth victory at the hustings in 2014? Some would say Narendra Modi, others would applaud the BJP organization, some would thank the RSS and others the cunning of master strategist, Amit Shah. Unfortunately though, as much as BJP would be unwilling to admit it, it was Congress leader […]

‘Ghoomar’ Song from Bhansali’s Padmavati is Crass, Flawed, Offensive, Atrocious and Disgusting

It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali was not content with merely making the Peshwa Queen do a bawdy song and dance routine in Bajirao Mastani, that he had to have the Rajput Queen Padmavati do an obscene Ghoomar (if it can be called that) in SLB’s latest historical distortion called Padmavati.
