With coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world taking over 200,000 lives worldwide and claiming about 1800 lives in India as of this writing on Saturday; and the entire nation, like most parts of the world, in a state of lockdown, there is one individual in Bihar who has managed to shield himself from the virus attack better than any person in the state, or maybe even in the entire nation.
So the love-fest between the Indians living in India and the US embarrassment Donald J. Trump, who is a bit over two years into his presidency, has come to an end after the Liar-in-Chief, while meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on July 22, 2019 at the White House, claimed that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him to mediate in the Indo-Pak conflict over Kashmir going on for over 70 years.
Our esteemed politicians have done it again!
Unhappy with the Muslim referece in the name of one of the most historical railway stations in India that held a special place in the heart of many travelers on the Howrah-Delhi line, the Narendra Modi government, at the behest of one of the nation's most revered and well-respected historian Dr. Yogi Adityanath, who also moonlights as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, on June 4, 2018 issued an order to change the name of Mughalsarai railway station to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Junction.
Our beloved Chief Minister His Highness Shri Nitish Kumar ji, after flipping and then flopping over his dilemma on communalism vs. corruption – the former led to his exit from the NDA government in 2013 and the latter 'forced' him to break away from the so-called Grand Alliance – we can safely surmise that this man has no core conviction and it's all about his next political move that will only advance his personal agenda. Maybe I'm Wrong; I Hope I am.
After believing all my life that the Indian political system, and by extension Bihar's political setup, was an over-bloated organization filled with departments with zero relevance in real life (Ganna Mantralaya, Rajbhasha Mantralaya anyone?), I finally realized, in a moment of epiphany if you will, that the state government was simply not large enough and there were many new departments that were just waiting to be created and filled with even more bureaucrats who could ease the life of the 'aam aadmi' just a bit more than what it already is.
Mani Shankar Aiyar, known for his political hackery with his lifelong history of surviving on the bones thrown at him by his political masters, i.e., the Gandhi family, finally crossed the line that put his leaders in a corner leaving them with no choice but to suspend him from the primary membership of the Congress Party.
Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tej Pratap Yadav was in Aurangabad on Sunday, November 19 where he addressed a crowd of his supporters reminding them that just because he was no more the Health Minister or his dad's party was no more in power, there was no reason to write him off from the political landscape of Bihar.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present you India's most dynamic leader who, after centuries of oppression imposed upon us by the Mughals and the British, has pledged to finally set us all free from their tyranny by abandoning or destroying monuments built by them and by re-writing history of India which will not have any mention of the 'Dark Age' between 1526 and 1947.
