Mohan Bhagwat, one of the most powerful persons in the country today, has said that his organisation RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) does not believe in the theory of exclusion. At a time when slogans like ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ and “RSS Mukt Bharat’ gain prominence, the statement made by RSS chief assumes great significance.

‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ and “RSS Mukt Bharat’ are political statements. RSS has nothing to do with it, and the Sangh always believes in the ideology of inclusion-Bhagwat made it clear during the book launching event of Dnaneshwar Mulay, the secretary of Ministry of external affairs.

RSS has been engaged in a process of nation building, and there’s no question about excluding someone in it. We need to include even those who oppose us-Mohan Bhagwat said.

Development is the ultimate solution for most of the intense problems in a society.  Marginalization and little consideration are ‘grand’ enough to nurture a feeling of oddity in the minds of people,  irrespective of their caste,  colour,  language or religion.  So the best thing is addressing them, be engaged with problems in terms of constructive ideas and developmental initiatives.
Zojila Tunnel will be the longest road tunnel in India. And, more importantly, it will be the longest bidirectional road tunnel project in Asia
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modified knows this very well.  That’s why the other day he expressed his belief in development during his Kashmir visit.  Modi has said that ‘development’ is the solution for Kashmir’s problems.
What the Modi government is doing now in Jammu and Kashmir, from an economic perspective, matters a lot.  The flagging off ceremony of Zojila Tunnel project on Saturday, 19 May, makes great sense for the very cause of development.  Zojila Tunnel in Kashmir is going to be  a path-breaking initiative in the state, marking a big leap in the history of infrastructure development, cementing a sense of belonging and integration among the people.
Once it becomes operational,  Zojila Tunnel will be the longest road tunnel in India. And, more importantly, it will be the longest bidirectional road tunnel project in Asia.
The construction of this 14-km tunnel will make all-weather connectivity between Srinagar,  Kargil and Leh.  The Rs.6800 crore project will reduce the travel time to cross the Zojila pass from 3.5 hours to just 15 minutes.

This will be a great advantage for India, even from a strategic point of view, as Pakistan still believes they can play misadventures in Kashmir.

Economic boom

The implementation of the project will result in creating hundreds of job opportunities,  once it is completed, there happens to be a remarkable turnaround in the tourism sector of the state.  Economic activities will strengthen, there will be increase in the number of tourists visiting the state.

Indeed, it’s good news for Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, when the assembly election for Karnataka, a south Indian state under the rule of Indian National Congress, is at the corner. Forbes magazine has included Narendra Modi in the list of world’s most powerful people this year. Modi has secured a commendable spot at nine in the top ten list, just behind Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

According to Forbes magazine, the list is topped by Chinese supremo Xi Jinping followed by Russian president Vladimir Putin and US president Donald Trump. German chancellor Angela Merkel comes at fourth spot followed by US billionaire Jeff Bezos.

It should be noted that for the last four years India’s fiscal deficit has been less than 1 per cent of GDP

When it comes to India, Modi’s elevation to the top ten is something to celebrate as he still remains a controversial leader for many so-called intellectuals, both in India and outside.

Why Modi matters

Forbes magazine observes that Modi has raised himself as a global leader, playing a profound role in combating climate change and global warming.  The top rank needs to be seen as recognition for Modi as he has taken some risky moves to change India’s economic scenario since he attained power in May 2014.

Modi has succeeded in establishing himself as a global leader challenging China’s Xi Jinping in Asia with his diplomatic masterstrokes and bold policies.  In an article appeared on Forbes website, its contributor Salvatore Babones state that India’s tremendous achievement in balancing the fiscal deficit gives Modi an edge in the upcoming general elections.

According to him India is going to achieve a fiscal deficit under .2 per cent of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2017-2018 fiscal year. It should be noted that for the last four years India’s fiscal deficit has been less than 1 per cent of GDP.

The economy has recovered at a tremendous pace, marking India again the fastest growing major economy in the world

Now, most of the international financial organisations are upbeat about Indian economy, putting the financial figures for the second most populous country on earth in an ambitious manner. Indian economy has witnessed some structural changes in the past four years of Modi government including the biggest tax reform, GST (Goods and Services Tax). Even though this resulted in a temporary slowdown, the economy has recovered at a tremendous pace, marking India again the fastest growing major economy in the world.

Not a mere sepoy; Mangal Pandey was the man who sparked off the great rebellion of 1857

Mangal Pandey was the man who sparked off the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. Here’s what you need to know about the great ‘sepoy’ when we celebrate the 161th anniversary of the great rebellion of 1857

One of the most inspiring figures in the Indian independence movement and widely known as the man behind the great rebellion of 1857, Mangal Pandey became a symbol of India’s rage against the British.

Pandey was a sepoy (soldier) with the 34th Bengal Native Infantry regiment of the infamous British East India Company. A hero for the Indian masses, he successfully played a crucial role in the unrest that resulted in the rebellion of 1857, which became a turning point in India’s struggle for independence.

The unrest against the British East Company turned intense when they had come up with the norm of using cartridges that made up of cow and pig fat. This was something unacceptable for both the Hindus and Muslims for religious reasons. Mangal Pandey was working at the Bengal Infantry in Barrackpore then.

The protests had no result. Finally Mangal Pandey decided to challenge the British with the arms in his hands. Mangal Pandey had succeeded in gaining the support of Indian soldiers against the inhuman actions of the British East India Company’s army.

Savarkar’s work, The Indian War of Independence, 1857, had become a sacred book for the nationalists across India to lead their struggle against the invaders

On March 29, 1857 Pandey dared to fire Lieutenant Baugh, the Adjutant of the 34th Bengal Native Infantry, but he missed the shot. The valiant effort by Pandey had paved the way for Sepoy Mutiny, and he was sentenced to death bu the British.

Pandey was hanged on April 8, 1857 by the British. In 1909, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar published a book named The Indian War of Independence, 1857, which celebrated the sacrifice of Mangal Pandey and the Sepoy Mutiny as two path-breaking events to inspire the revolutionary movements in India. Savarkar’s work had become a sacred book for the nationalists across India to lead their struggle against the invaders.
