Narendra Modi conferred with Order of Zayed - Zayed Medal from the UAE

PM Narendra Modi has recently been conferred upon with the highest civilian order of the UAE by the president. Also called the Zayed Medal or Order of Zayed, this award has been given to 16 recipients before Narendra Modi. However, in terms of the statesman of democratic or government set-ups, Narendra Modi is one of the few recipients. The main question that arises after the award has been delivered by a Muslim Majority country, his endorsements are a proof that Modi is achieving heights internationally in terms of bilateral relations and strategic ties with the nations of importance or not? And the second question is that is Narendra Modi really anti-minority in India?

Decoding the NYAY scheme that keeps poor and generates poverty

Rahul Gandhi is a visionary. There must be no doubts or disputes here. He is truly a visionary who has thought of such a scheme that will offer unemployed or underemployed more of unemployment or underemployment. No need to strive for a better lifestyle or wealth if you don't earn well. Rahul's NYAY will do justice for you and you will be given the top-up to make your income or no-income as high as 12,000 Rs. That also, the amount will directly be deposited into your bank account. Yes, the scheme uses DBT or direct benefit transfer system mostly systemised and infrastructured by no-knowledge Modi who doesn't know even the basics of ecnomoy or the 1/1,00,000 of what P. Chidambaram knows (figure calculated by Fact Checker or Free Thinker).

Karnataka Elections 2018 - wait for the evening for the Government!

Elections in India have never been boring and dull like the elections in Russia or the (s)elections in China. Indian election, as a popular saying is in Hindi, bhai bat hi kuchh aur hai! 

I have been following and analysing elections in India majorly after the historic 2014 general elections that changed the discourse in the country - figures who had to come out in public and expose their true face, did come out and did expose themselves. The journalists sitting in the studios and enjoying a participatory share in the corridors of power finally exposed their true and hidden face behind the museum of fabrications they call journalism. The 2014 general elections, to be short, was decisive in the history of India. Today, the Karnataka assembly election 2018, taken by most as the road to 2019 general elections, has finally culminated with the result and one thing is clear - Modi has an edge; I don't care Rajdeep concedes it or not.

Rape Beyond Rape: Don't sermon girls - teach our boys to respect women! Writes Nidhi

Have you ever witnessed a rape beyond a rape? In the wake of the recent Kathua rape case (which, by all means, was no rape at all), we have to understand when rape moves beyond its periphery and hounds the victims and even more, hounds every girl who comes to know about the heinous crimes. Without going into the merits of the ghastly crime against a child, Nidhi writes the other side of the story which has become a 'suffix' to such kind of crimes as 'post-crime' protests and off. 

I happened to talk to someone today who shared an incident. It was about someone's reaction to this recent gory incident of rape of a minor girl on social media where they tried to pick up the issue of religion over this shameful act.

I ask those people a direct question, if they don't take a stand on this issue, are they having an assurance of the safety of their children in India. I understand to say this, they must have gone through something really terrible but isn't it true that "an eye for an eye, will make the whole nation blind." We have to put an end to this somewhere, somehow.

American Maharajah by Mark Stephen Levy - Book Review

In India, people love reading; they even love writing as well. However, one thing that Indians love is certainly reading the perspectives of foreigners on India and Indian ways and anything Indian. Recently, I have, out of curiosity, bought a book by an American author. The book was titled American Maharajah and it was initially about a prince who is said to have returned many years after his death... later, the book turns out to be a contemporary novel with a difference - nothing sort of extravaganza there for the readers who love spice. It was a simple novel but very ripe one. I certainly enjoyed reading it and I would love to share my reading experience with the readers of India Latest News.

Secularism, Media, Intolerance, Politics - the helpless nation

For God sake! What has gone wrong with our media today? The fourth pillar has fallen on its knees and has succumbed to the new definition of the much-debated term 'secularism'. For some, secularism is something which is nothing other than naming and shaming just one religion and trying so hard to defend even the worst and indefensible cases of extremism in other religions' ambit and we are witnessing it every now and then without a pause, ceaseless and over the years. We have been reading the 'journalism' by anoetic reporters for these 3-4 years without even the verification of the facts which is the basic rule that every journalism student has to learn during the days of study. What has gone wrong? Why is our media so anxious? Why has the term 'secularism' pierced the hearts of many? Today, the country seeks answers and we know we have none! We all know that there is some problem but we all know as well that there is no arcana which could provide relief at this hour of 'intolerance'.

Newton Movie - Naxalism - Propaganda - Freedom of Expression

Recently I saw the much-talked-about movie Newton which also represented the case of India at academy awards previous year. Let me say at the outset of anything else I say, the movie was fantastic and it is just way ahead of the Indian cinema! Acting by the lead characters Rajkumar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi has been awesome and I can bet that no Khan from the Bollywood could have made this movie the movie it has become! Newton was fantastic!
