The Whistle For The 2019 Political Battle Is Blown And The Bahubali Ready

Modi's exclusive interview to the ANI

ON THE VERY FIRST DAY OF 2019, with an exclusive interview to the ANI, Narendra Bahubali made his intentions crystal clear. That the Bahubali is not gratified with just one term and is ready to battle for the another. For the critics, it would be interesting to find out if there is going to be any Katappa or it’ll be a Katappa-less battle.

Ok, let's be serious. Politics is a serious subject, no? Let’s talk about Smita Prakash who seems to be Mr Modi's preferred choice of journalists in order to move and shake the political discourse of the nation. Speaking of her, I must tell you, the lady is a very great listener. To interview someone like Modi, you need to be a good listener rather than a good speaker. Because, you know, he goes on and on… and on. Eventually, he ends up wooing you. Though not if you have some predefined political goals or loyalty to a particular party.

The interview was much-needed from him to upgrade his party’s morale for the bigger battle ahead and to shatter hope of the opposition. The loss in the simultaneous assembly elections of MP, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Telangana says it loud and clear ― that after the dream of acchhe din having been busted, the commoners' trust in the Bahubali is wearing off. Most part of the interview appears to be scripted or staged. But overall the interview served its purpose of providing the nation with excellent entertainment. Unsurprisingly, it was more entertaining than the 2018 Bollywood movies of Khans.

The prime minister has answered all itchy questions quite comfortably which only means that he came fully prepared. But his answers erased the doubts whether he is finding himself in a weaker position for being unable to keep promises made in the 2014 election or with mistakes made by his government in the last four years.

I’ve written a short article, obviously because writing long piece takes time and research while I’m already full with my assignments. I just couldn’t let the story of Modi’s interview simply pass under my nose. That's why this short piece. Needless to say, there will be more to come. There is still time for the real battle to commence after all.

Sanjay Dutt Hero Or Villain? A Review Of Sanju Baba’s Journey As Both

The Sanjay Dutt biopic “Sanju” was released on 29th of June made by one of the best filmmakers of the B-town, Rajkumar Hirani. It was marketed as an “unbelievably true story”. Indeed Dutt’s journey is unbelievable. However, there have been many unbelievable personalities too such as Dawood or Osama. Sorry for comparing Dutt with Don and Terrorist. The drugs, booze, women, and AK 56 make Sanju a largely negative character in the real world. Not his fault, according to the film.

Some people say Sanjay Dutt doesn’t deserve a biopic as there are many “good” people, with their “good” work, that go unnoticed. The argument over whether Dutt deserves a biopic or not is inane. It’s like saying Dhoni’s biopic should have been made after his retirement. The truth is, biopics are made on interesting people, not the good ones, especially if it is of commercial in nature. If that interesting people is a negative character, it gets more publicity. Also, a “fictional” biopic cannot be real. Be it Da…

Making A Difference — Indian Media And Ravish Kumar

Today's Bulletin: Priya Prakash Varrier’s killing wink, Taimur’s daily schedule, 'Rashtramata' Padmavati, Donald Trump tweets, Different types of jihad - love jihad, hate jihad, cow jihad, North Korea’s ‘mental dictator’ Kim Jong Un's preparation for a nuclear war, and last, but not the least —An esteemed panel of 'alleged' experts and politicians engaging in an ‘alleged’ debate.
If you are a consumer of Indian media, particularly the news channels, you might have got the idea of what my opening words are and where I’m trying to point it. If you think, all mediawallahs (media personnel) are same, or that these are really important topics worthy of your time, you need to think again.

There is a 'proven' left-wing terrorist, and an atheist, perhaps, NDTV journo named Ravish Kumar who is different. The non-Hindi Indian states might not have heard his name. He is not interested in covering ‘big stories’, no loud debates, no panel of Pakistani alleged ‘defe…

Are You Taking Part In The Smart Home Revolution?

Improvement is the constant endeavour humanity has been undertaking for eternity. The basic virtue of humans is to improve their well-being with the help of technology; from developing simple tools for hunting and gathering to directing Google Assistant or Siri order nice and warm food from our favourite restaurant, we’re on a relentless quest for easing out our life. That's why we are witnessing an undergoing transition from conventional technology into smart technology.

What Is Smart?

The popular definition of ‘smart’ is anything that is able to connect to other devices, or to the internet, and can be controlled remotely. But, with the latest technology coming every day, this definition might become obsolete sooner or later, what is going to be consistent is the reason why smart devices are being invented. And why you should be using it. A smart device, according to me, can be defined as something that saves your time for more productive or “humanly” activities.

Cashless Economy - The Key To A Reform

Despite every government efforts, demonetisation has turned out to be a failure. Not just because its implementation was disastrous, but because a black market has evolved to convert black money into white ridiculing this ‘bold’ and ‘historic’ move. I have summarized in my previous post why just demonetisation cannot end corruption or even black money.

It must be noted that demonetisation has been implemented before it could leak out to the media sources. There must have been a large workforce for printing a huge number of notes in such a small time and for other preparations to enforce this plan smoothly. The new ₹2000 note had already begun leaking on social media as everyone could not remain silent for a long time. That probably explains why this decision has been taken in some haste and the government and RBI of not being ‘fully prepared’ for this move resulting in a cash crunch.

But, it's good that what began as demonetisation has now been transformed into a cashless revolut…
