Is it right to use Movies to score Politics? #AccidentalPrimeMinister

India is a country of controversies and we keep on seeing newer and newer controversies emerging daily. Some controversies die fast while others continue for years. The recent controversy is about the Anupam Kher's latest movie "Accidental Prime Minister" in which he is playing the role of formal Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. 

This controversy emerged with the release of the trailer of movie Accidental Prime Minister. The Congress party blames that this movie is made to spoil the image of Gandhi family while Anupam Kher claims that his movie is based on the book written by Baru Sanjaya whose role is played by Akshay Khanna in the movie. 

Mostly in India, we see politics on the single line that "I am right and you are wrong". The focus of all political parties is more on proving others wrong than proving themselves right. They want your votes not because they are right but because others are wrong. In such kind of politics, we hardly see right things pro…

Confusion over the TRAI's New DTH Pricing Rules

At the start of this month, TRAI passed new rules for DTH pricing in India and these rules will be effective from the start of next year. Already, we are seeing ads by the leading networks like Star, Zee etc to buy their channels packs. In the advertisement, they all say to contact your DTH/Cable operator to subscribe to their channel packs. The channel packs of Star and Zee are starting from Rs 49 and Rs 45 respectively, whereas there are many other channel networks whose packs are starting from as low as Rs 8 only.

I did contact my DHT operator, Tata Sky and told them about my confusion. I asked them to clarify me the process to join these channel packs and also told that this facility is still not available on their website (mytatasky.com). The person on the phone told me that they are trying to comply with TRAI order and before 29 Dec 2018, they will update their system. After that, I will be able to select the packs of my choice. Even after this reply, my confusion is still pres…

It is the time for Christmas Holidays (Some Christmas Images)

All around the world, people are now busy celebrating Christmas with their loved ones. Christmas is one of the biggest festivals celebrating in our world and this festival is very popular because of the huge population of Christians across the world. In India too, we can find huge enthusiasm for the festival of Christmas. Not only Christians but people from the other religion too enjoy celebrating Christmas.  This festival is celebrated to mark the birth of Jesus Christ who gave his life for the welfare of ordinary people.

I do wish everyone a very happy Christmas and I do wish that this day bring happiness to every person's life. During my childhood on the Christmas day, I always wanted that Santa Claus should pay a visit to my home and give me a toy. At that age, I was not aware of the fact that your parents or loved one become a Santa for you. It is a good thing to enjoy festivals because they spread happiness and love. Today, people are becoming more comfortable with each other…

#TrumpResign - A popular hashtag

The politicians around the world remain in news for many positive and negative news and America's President Donald Trump is also one of them. From the time of his election to the highest post in the US, he is always surrounded with one or other controversy. Many people believe that he is incapable of holding the highest post and he should resign. Today, I saw a great example of this trend when I saw #Trumpresign as the top searched and shared keyword on the top social media platforms like Twitter. 

When I saw this hashtag for the first time on twitter then I thought for some time that Donald Trump might have resigned and I rushed to my TV to verify this news but later I realized that it is an appeal to Donal Trump to resign and it is trending as a top trend and even in countries like India this hashtag topped in the list. I am neither a supporter of Donald Trump nor his adversary but if he suddenly resigns then it will surely surprise me. Today, social media has become a very power…

What is international Tea (Chai) Day? Have you heard of it?

Today for the first time, I came to know about the existence of International Tea Day. No offence in it and I am sorry for it if I was not aware of any such day. The main reason behind my ignorance was an ordinary approach associated with Tea (our chai) and it is hard to believe that tea (our chai) can go international. We Indian drink tea for no specific reason and it is very hard for many people to think about a life without Tea or morning chai. Tea or popularly chai is very common and it is easily accessible to everyone. It is very common to see small stall owners on the roadside selling chai at every busy corner of India. Though tea was not discovered by us; however, one thing is very clear that we are very much responsible for its popularity around the world.

In India, tea or chai is considered a much cheaper option than Coffee because of the rate difference in them. In India, it is easier to find many people who may have never tasted coffee but it is unlikely to find a person w…

Comeback for Congress in Hindi Heartland?

Today came with a good news for the Congress as Congress is likely to make next governments in the three Hindi heartland states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh. Most of the exit polls already pointed towards the win of Congress in Rajasthan; however, no one predicted a win for Congress in Chhattisgarh. In Chhattisgarh, Congress did an exceptionally well job by winning 65 seats out of 90. In Madhya Pradesh, Congress looks to be the number one party with a shortage of 3 to 4 seats away from the majority. In Rajasthan, Congress has almost touched the magic number and it is in a comfortable position to make the next government.

These results are great news for Congress which is looking some miracle to save its skin. These wins have also increased the faith of people on Congress and Congress looks to make a comeback in 2019 Loksabha election. These results are also encouraging sign for the Rahul Gandhi and his leadership. BJP and its leaders have mentioned many times that n…

Fruit of labor takes a time to ripe

It is natural for all human beings to expect the results very fast of all the efforts done by them. However, in reality, the fruit of labor takes a time to ripe and we need to be patient to eat this fruit. Our main focus should always be on the work and not on the results it brings. The more we concentrate on the results more we move away from the hard work. When we keep on doing the hard work then it is not possible that our work will remain unnoticed for long. Sooner or later, our work gets noticed but no one knows the exact time when this will happen.

For happiness and success in any work, it is important for us to concentrate only on our efforts, and not on the results. True success and happiness can only be attained by those people who put efforts in any work without any expectations. Now it depends on us that we want happiness and success in life or we want to chase the false things.

Goodbye Urjit Patel (Story behind his resignation)

Today, many people in India got surprised by the news of a sudden resignation by RBI chief Urjit Patel. He resigned before nine months of the end of his services as the RBI governor. When any officer of such high rank suddenly resigns then we always ask a question that he resigned himself or he was forced to do so. So far, Urjit Patel has clarified that he is resigning because of his personal reasons. We all know that India is going through a hard time financially and the situation may worsen if no concrete steps are taken on time. During this time, it is not good to hear such news.

Some experts on TV were claiming that Urjit Patel did this because the high level of pressure on him to comply with the direction given by the government. A few months back too, we heard some uneasiness between the government of India and RBI over the powers of RBI and its autonomy. RBI is an autonomous body and therefore, it is very important to maintain its autonomy at any stake. It is also important fo…

A big win for India Vijay Mallya to be sent back to India

Today brought a good news for all Indians as the UK court ordered the extradition of Vijay Mallya to India. This will make it possible for the Indian government to bring back Vijay Mallya and prosecute him under the Indian laws. So far, he was away from the hands of Indian authorities because of his stay in England. Indian government asked him to return back, however, he refused to follow. Therefore, the Indian government went to England Court for his extradition. Initially, it looked hard to bring him back but today's ruling by the Court in England provide a big hope for billions of people of India.

Though despite this ruling of the England Court, it is not clear that when Vijay Mallya will return to India because he may appeal against the court ruling in the higher court. However, this news has brought some hope and we can hope that the same results will come from the next court hearing too. Vijay Mallya is required to pay back Indian banks 9k crore rupees and this money can br…

Around 15K deaths because of potholes in last five years

Some data are very shocking and unbelievable. One similar data is about around 15K deaths in India because of potholes. These numbers are so alarming that even the Supreme Court of India raised a question on this issue. It is bad for any country to have so bad roads that they start killing more numbers of people than the actual numbers of people killed by any kind of war in country. This clearly states that we don't need wars to kill people because our roads are already doing this job. The condition of Indian roads has always remained a matter of debate. Despite so many efforts, the condition of Indian roads is not good.

Even in big cities, it is very common to find potholes and bad roads then who cares about the small cities and villages. The main reason behind such problems is that there is no system to make concerned authorities accountable. The officials involved in road construction don't do their jobs properly and high corruption is another reason which fuels such probl…

On 11th December, we will come to know about the results of three major states for BJP Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. At present BJP is ruling all three states and winning in these states is crucial for BJP to retain power at the center. However, the exit polls are giving some worrying signs for BJP in the states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. As per the major exit polls, BJP may lose in these states, but it is too early to say anything and we can wait till 11th Dec to get the exact results. In Rajasthan, most of opinion and exit polls are united on the exit of BJP from Rajasthan. Whereas in Madhya Pradesh exit polls and opinions are divided on the exit of BJP from the state.

There is also one good news for the BJP that all exit polls are predicting its win in the Chhattisgarh assembly elections. BJP is quite confident of winning the 2019 Loksabha elections; however, to fulfill this dream it needs to maintain its state governments. Any negative wave can badly affect t…

Money or no money in blogging

When I started blogging then there was very little awareness about blogging in India. It was quite hard then to make people understand what blogging is all about. Slowly, more and more numbers of people become aware of this medium of writing and they started using it. The main awareness about blogging came when people realized that they can also make money with blogging. In the initial phase, people made a good amount of money with the help of blogs they have but as the news of making money with blogs spread wider, we saw large numbers of people jumping into blogging arena to make money and show their skills. All this caused a huge rush of bloggers and everyone started turning into a blogger. Due to this huge rush, the competition in the blogging segment increased many times and the earning of the most of bloggers decreased significantly.

The time was so bad that it became even harder for the experienced bloggers to make a significant earning from their blogs. Soon the charm of earni…
