Default Something to ponder about...

The BJP is the only party that can lead India in a sane manner. The various issues that stand before India :
- Free market reform that has been strangled by the communists and congress
- National security . For the congress and other so called secular forces - criticizing terrorism/pakistan is tantamount to criticizing Islam. They jail Varun Gandhi for making divisive comments(agreed that the comments are in bad taste) but what about the Imam Bukharis and Mulayam singhs who make divisive comments every single day.
- The concept of nationalism and pride was first felt during the years when Vajpayee was PM. To be honest I never felt proud to be Indian until AB Vajpayee became PM
- Infrastructure development. The BJP is more free market than any other party. the Vajpayee administration started so many infrastructure schemes like the golden quadrilateral national highway and various others.
- The BJP is the only party with true nationalists. You may blame them for being right wing hindus but they have more secular credentials than the congress or other so called secular forces. Now let's get this straight - Radical Islam is the biggest threat to world peace and the BJP is the only party at the national level that recognizes this threat.

Agreed that there could be corruption in the BJP/NDA as well but atleast you know what you are getting into. Manmohan Singh is the weakest PM India has ever had whose sole goal in life is to please his masters - the Gandhi family.
All in all you will find faults with everyone - you have to back the least of all evils.

It doesn't cost you anything to make promises, also people are used to being ditched by politicians, so they don't complaint. I guess mostly people feel satisfied by just getting the glimpse of you if you are a celeberity, otherwise why would anybody vote for Sanjay Dutt(thank God Supreme court banned him) ? Govinda, Dharmendra, Jayapradha have proved to be worst MPs for their constituencies...

Few years back bunch of cricketers originating from AP here in MI sponsored him and his wife to visit here. I was invited by come and shake hand and photograph with this bookie and his beautiful wife. Majority of people having self-respect politely rejected the invitation. Now I hear he is trying to become bookie in New Delhi. Good Luck!
Well said !

He has mistrusted us. I do remember throwing his wiket by giving simple catch on mid-on/off and getting run out others ! When CBI raided his home, they found 3 -4 crore of watches in his jwell box. Wonder how much money he might have made with working top bookies ? He/Sanjay Dutt and other like them know that it might come back anytime so they are getting prepared politically.

Again, MERA BHARAT MAHAAN !

India Should go election reforms first. All these bad politicians are coming because of voters without responsibility are voting. For some 500Rs is like one weeks ration. So no wander if they sell this commodity. So for the voters we should put the qualifications like paying the taxes are having something like 10 acre of Land or certain education requirement. So that Politicians cannot bribe the voters easily. Also that would stop the announcement like free TV free Laptop. Like US during freedom war no representation no tax. In India it should be no tax no vote. That way we can curb pompous politicians.

In Some way need to avoid such nonsense.

Some time back when I asked my chinese colleagues to join IV they commented that immigrationvoice.org is an "indian" immigration forum...

No wonder they felt that way.

There is no word as high-skilled in the law. We all are in the skilled category. High is probably added by the media. Maybe because most people are computer programmers and it seems tough to an average Joe.

As long as we are not citizens of USA showing interest in Indian politics is ok. I would say even after becoming citizens it is ok since we are connecting to our country of birth/origin. If someone wants to discuss Burma or China, they can also do that.

We are immigrants and still are nostalgic to our India. Nothing wrong in it.

Now tell me, at home do you only discuss immigration with your wife and kids just because you do not have a greencard and are obsessed with it? or do you only discuss work in your office just because you are at work and office is for work? Don't you joke around, have a fun time etc at work too? or do you just send a rude email in big red letters to your CEO saying please delete my name from your payroll because someone in my office is discussing something other than work and I am offended.

And our current PM is a Sikh. That is why I am saying that MMS does not have spine. He does not have self respect. He is warming PM's chair until Yuvraj is ready. There is no use of good academic record if you are a shameless chaprasi.
