I support Shashi Tharoor – He should be a “mentor” to Indian Hockey

I

Modi and his “gujju folks” as they call them, were businessmen already, so what would you expect from them – do business of course !

Why do people advertise charity ?

L

Mr. Obama clearly showed the world how to make use of the internet to a politicians benefit. And he did that with panache. He knew that the youth is out there lying “untapped”, and he simply went out and reached out to them through the channels. BJP, and it’s candidate for PM, Mr. L K Advani, is doing exactly that. Mr. Advani is known for his adaptability to new and fresh ideas and this one, he...
