'MODI'fication of Gujarat - Bharath next?

It is Modi again in Gujarat. He has done it, despite the curses, opinion building, friends and foes, internal meandering etc. Modi has proved his mettle and marches ahead with victory. It was not a cake walk of course. He toiled for this victory and he deserves it. It is a hat trick for Modi and BJP in Gujarat. His leadership qualities and his communication skills are commendable. Some call it marketing gimmick. But they forget the fact that gimmickry cannot get you going for the third consecutive time with a thumping victory.

What is under the hood of this Sainthood?

It was another Sunday (2/2/12) with the usual laziness syncing in and day was moving at a snail's pace. While watching TV, I saw some Christian  function with some big wigs of the church present. It was Jaya Plus channel and they said that martyrdom was being accorded to one Devasahayam Pillai. I googled and wiki'd to figure out what role has he played in the freedom struggle. Later it turned out to be a Christian religious martyrdom. So, what does this mean to us? Pillai will be a Christian saint sooner or later. This martyrdom is the first step towards that.

The fable of ‘Martyr’ Devasahayam Pillai: Church’s lies stand exposed – B.R. Gauthaman

This is an article, a well researched one, of my learned friend B.R.Gauthaman. The incisive questions asked by him based on the facts and recorded history, puts the claim of the church under a cloud of suspicion. The color quote by the church may wane when it rains. I have my thoughts and questions on the sainthood offer. I'll put them through shortly.

Now, here goes Gauthaman.

Holocaust of Cattle - Are we living amongst Schultz Staffel?

Sunday normally starts with a lazy morning, my mom prodding about prayers and breakfast, dad enjoying his time with me speaking from politics to Vedanta to old time memories. One of the past Sundayas (7/10/12) was different. None was at home in the morning as parents left to home town for Navarathri. Bloody lazy day with loads of outstanding works is really a hell. But as there was no other go, started the day through that hell and was sailing through.
