India - Africa Summit 2015

As I am typing this post, I'm eagerly viewing the India Africa Summit on Lok Sabha TV. I'll write more on this function which is of immense interest to me when I find time. (I taught in schools in Africa for many years).

Dusserah Fest 2015

Hindus all over the world celebrate today as Vijayadashami, the last of Dusserah. As with all festivities, this fest is immensely related day to day living of many Hindus. Today is also celebrated as Madhwa Jayanti (The day on which Madhwachaarya, Founder Saint of Madhwa Mutt, was born).

Gandhiji and Shastriji

Today is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi  and Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri. Our respects to both.

This morning I saw a news report that a team of hearing and speech impaired athletes representing our country and leaving for Taiwan were denied accommodation in the Sports Authority of India hostel. Isn't it a national shame?

All well meaning Indians would know that today our country is far different from what Gandhiji and Shastriji aspired it to be.

Hope that Shree Narendra Modi's team brings in drastic changes in Effective Public Policies and Governance.
