    Is Modi being ambivalent?

    Will he rise above the historical wrongs and instead focus on a glorious future?

    So far, it appears that he striding purposefully towards rebuilding a shattered India even at the risk of taking unpopular decisions.

    It is a meme that many of the Congress Party adheres to.

    And the Congress Party still survives to opine.

    Yet, it a view and so food for thought to dispassionately and with logic demolish or support.

    You have to understand that there exists a very cosy and incestuous relationship between the various Congress Governments, Babus, academicians and media. This exists on the premise that You scratch my back and I scratch your back.

    We are already seeing a lot of noise being generated on the institutions being demolished by the Modi Government. This onslaught will continue for some more time.

    This article must be read with this point in mind.

    If you read the article than education, sanitation and employment gets one paragraph while RSS, Hindi nationalism , secular and other things get to hog the major share.

    Can this be merged with the existing NaMo thread?
    Or do the members wish to discuss from a fresh post-election point of view (PM NaMo); in which case I can rename the thread.

    Please note that debate on issues would be encouraged, as opposed to debate on personalities.

    Secular Nationalists......What's that :lol: I mean, article tries to forcefully scare new readers but as usual, this is another idiotic article doubting Modi's capabilities. Modi clearly says Garib ko Kshmta chahiye.....means he won't give any freebies but author failed to distract such common sense here because author doesn't want to.

    Yes, after all shias have forgotten Karbala, that happened more than 1400 years ago, in a far off land.

    Modi just has too many things to do ie on the economic front
    he has no time or inclination or energy
    for controversies

    He has come to power with two challenges ie

    1 people expecting too much too soon

    2 the mess left by the previous govt

    It is true that Modi is still a Hindu nationalist but he is very weak in front of Islamism which has a presence in many continents and has ruled land of India for centuries, Christianism a trend which controls education in India and is a global religion along with enjoying rule over India for centuries, Communism which now is sine qua non of all 'progressives' and finally Anglicised consumerism which is greatly popular among Modi's voters. A leader in a democractic nation is useless without people support. Modi has no support from vocal middle class youths for his civilizational or better cultural agendas. Modi will be kicked out if he does not deliver on economic front.
    Ofcourse, this is a great thing for authors like the one who wrote article quoted by OP.

    I would love to see Modi's administration to use the pan national sanitation agenda to promote skill development in rural areas. A massive investment in an eco friendly sanitation infrastructure using local labor might yield great dividends.

    As far as the Hindutva is concerned I think it would only serve as a distraction from the task at hand for Modi.

    BJP is less radical than the Republican Party of the USA. If BJP has learned anything from it's past poll debackles when it's core voters deserted it, BJP will never compromize on the Hindutva agenda.

    We need to generate employment locally to reduce the pressure on our large cities. We also need to reduce the dependence on Agriculture. India's Central and State governments have been working on this for past 5 years and results have been encouraging. Housing, Sanitation and Connectivity in rural areas is high on new central government's priorities.

    I am afraid that is not quite correct.

    What is Muharram about?

    Shia Muslims do so to commemorate the martyrdom of Hussein ibn Ali on the Day of Ashura.

    Battle of Karbalāʾ, the brief military engagement in which a small party led by al-Ḥusayn ibn ʿAlī, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and son of ʿAlī, the fourth caliph, was defeated and massacred by an army sent by the Umayyad caliph Yazīd I. The battle helped secure the position of the Umayyad dynasty, but among Shīʿite Muslims (followers of al-Ḥusayn) the 10th of Muharram (or ʿĀshūrāʾ) became an annual holy day of public mourning.

    So. Karbala has never been forgotten and is remembered annually.

    As far as Mr Modi is concerned, he has to concentrate first on development to get the confidence of, and grip on, India. And then he can take go forth boldly on the path to cleanse and sincerely make India secular; where all religions are kept within the homes and not flaunted for political and social purposes or employed as instruments of blackmail.

    This has nothing to do with American political parties.

    I certainly agree with everything you have said in the second paragraph. However I haven't seen an official plan yet.

    What do you mean by Agriculture? With development there would be far greater need for food for rising population. There is a need of programs to increase the per yield production and less water dependent crops should be promoted.

    I meant lesser dependence of people on farming for livelyhood. That is not going to reduce our farm output.

    Separatists and pro-Pakistani elements had a field day. Our PM with the 56inch chest could only watch helplessly. Pity the poor RW hindus who believed last year (before May elections) that Modi was the messiah who'd save India.
