Let’s also forget those CIA sponsored coups against the popular, democratic governments and installations of puppet regimes in the Middle East which oppressed their own people but kept the oil supply running westward.

If it had been a lesser mortal, on the dais, he would have succumbed under the enormous pressure to perform at yet another event. However, after successfully taking euphoric middle-class from one event to another, PM Modi (It seems, I love this guy too!) did not let us down on Sunday, December 27

In Pictures: 65 Faces of Bharat Mata

If anyone had even a shard of doubt over the role BJP played in the ‘nationalism’ tinted incidents that have taken place at various places than the BJP National Executive meeting has removed it. Now even the ‘innocents’ know that it was not people on the fringes who caused things to happen in a certain way, which even coloured Congress in saffron hue.
