When there is a report in the media about an accident, how it is painted will give us an idea about the present day culture. There will be 2 politicals identities. The hitman is Congress and the victim is BJP or vice-versa.
The victim will be lying there without medical attention, while lot of media people talking about it in different ways. TRP goes up and their favorite poltical leaders will get a cause to survive. Unfortunately, we a;; will be there to join one or the other leader, without even knowing what actually happened there. We want to hear about if from our leaders` mouth.
We walk politics, we speak politics, we eat politics, we sleep politics, we even color the God with politics and what not.
We belong to States and not to India. So we will see States-man. Statesman, who he is, after all?
The statesman is guided by moral, citizen, oriented ideas and needs. The statesman does not need or require obedience of any kind. He does not exploit the use of patriotism for his own egotism or personal economic objectives.
Contrarily, the politician relishes power--he worships it--and enjoys its appearance. The politician will readily accommodate any situation that he deems appropriate for masking his quest for political and economic power.

We need a couple of statesmen!! Enough of these selfish and powerhungry politicians!!!
albert schweitzer is right in telling the truth about lying. Lying behind the curtain and then lying is the most simple form of self-defence. Politicians are the experts in laying foundation in this manner. Golden letters with their names will be belying it. Knair
Yes, Chidu, Montek and MMS may find it "growth-i-rate".
Rangarajan says 6% growth is far away. Subbu seems to be reading things right but can he write the script with a trick? Corporate biggies and economists in our country seldom get credit if they rate it correctly. Good as we treat it when it comes from outside, even if it is wrong.
Ask any aam aadmi, he knows the reality. But is he got any value, until and unless there is an election?
to make US economy gloomy and also to give more strength to the dollar Vs other currencies they are de-rating more countries continuously in europe and also to asian countries particularly threatening india. If they really rating good, then they should de-rate the US economy as their fiscal deficit is much more unanswerable. Even Moody`s warn about it.
Yes, India`s woeful economic condition is there to see for everyone. Just the rich have got a bit richer by squeezing the poor, thats all. Its the same story today as it was, when the BJP propoganda of India Shining failed miserably. MMS`s childish slogan `money does not grow on trees` is perhaps a good enough excuse for S&P to downgrade India!!!
The blackmailing coalition politicians have pushed the country to the brink of bankruptcy. It is the electorate which is responsible for this sorry state of the country by voting regional parties based on religion/region/cast/language. Corruption is the cost of running coalition politics.Passing each legislation requires purchase of MPs.Unless a single secular party comes to power in the center, the countries future is bleak.
