Last Sunday, a brilliant student of my junior research class told me that he wanted to give his political (mundane) explanation astrologically showing why the terrorist attack took place and why it had to be in south west direction which ofcourse is Bombay.

On this basis, he further showed why
the next attack, since this attack is not likely to stop now that India world’s softest target with a huge population sympathetic to the terrorists and with some of them willing to be members of sleeper cells,----will be in NORTHERN INDIA.

The day Indo Nuclear deal was signed,
Sardar Manmohan Singh signalled India joining the American bloc was the message sent to the Muslim world, particularly the fundamentalists among them.

In the meantime, the Bharatiya Janata
Party has earned the wrath of some Indians who do not like any political party to make political capital out of such incidents, so painfully exposing our national deficiencies and defects in characters. Some of them are reminding the BJP that its own record during the Kandhahar kidnapping was disgraceful.

What most of the politicians do not
know , it seems, is that younger generation of Indians, in early thirties and, even younger ones, are intelligently patriotic. The voting power and strength is in their hands and they can cause major swings in elections. It will serve no purpose if the middle aged people blame politicians as we are a democracy and we have to elect politicians, however opportunistic and unscrupulous, to power. What is the way out?

The coming dasha of Sun in the Indian
horoscope provides an adequate answer. Domestic policies will demand and get greater attention, economically tariff barriers, resembling protectionism of British Indian days, and adequate security measures with stringent laws.At the moment, stringent security laws have been sacrificed at the altar of political opportunism by the UPA government which repealed the excellent POTA which the earlier, NDA, government and had framed, enforced and provoked terrorists. But the Congress politicians who thought it was used against one community repealed it instead of instructing the law enforcing authorities to be impartial if there was any truth in the allegations against NDA’s POTA.

National security first
has to be the aim of any government.What will the new Home Minister, Chidambaram do now unless he brings into effect some POTA like legal act immediately into force?

In the encircling tension and gloom, a
BJP leader has provided some hilarity and provoked women against himself.

People slam politicians; BJP leader
calls them terrorists

NO HOLDING HIS TONGUE: Naqvi gets into trouble for deriding Mumbai protesters. That’s what BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said. "Some women wearing lipstick and powder have taken to streets in Mumbai and are abusing politicians spreading dissatisfaction against democracy. This is what terrorists are doing in Jammu and Kashmir," said Naqvi, the party’s national vice-president.

The lighter side was that the English
cricket team down five zero to India in ODIs was waiting for a total disgrace if it was to lose the remaining two to make it seven zero. We were debating if Pieterson’ team would take this opportunity and run away. Yes, they did it.
