Is Modi an exception of two mouth politicians? May 26, 2015 15:32

Politicians are two types, one who make promises and second who assure that they will keep the promises in future. The above phrase insists that the politicians are not action oriented.  Is Modi a two mouth politician or he is an exception? Let's find out.Standing before India on the first anniversary of his swearing-in, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday gave a speech that was notable for the subjects it avoided: Large-scale job creation. Manufacturing. Urbanization.Modi vows that the Government remains favorable for farmers, instead of "big industrialists". He praised the poor, who he said "will become my warriors."On the other hand, critics claim that the outsize expectations he created among masses is another reason for the opponents to pin point him. Since then, India's business culture has indeed changed, chief executives say. They rejoice that they no longer have to notarize all documents submitted to the government and say that it is far easier to find bureaucrats at their desks during the workday.By most measures, India's economy has had a good year. The government has introduced a flurry of changes: It has deregulated prices for diesel, petroleum and cooking gas, and raised limits on foreign investment in the defense and insurance sectors to 49 per cent. It has opened 125 million bank accounts for poor families, with the goal of eventually replacing food and fuel subsidies with cash transfers to prevent corruption. Coalfield leases, found to have been sold at artificially low prices, were reallocated through a transparent process; so were telecom spectrum allocations.Raghuram Rajan, the governor of the Reserve Bank of India, told an audience in New York last week that many people saw Modi as "Ronald Reagan on a white horse" coming to slay anti-market forces, which attracted mixed reactions.He added that the government "has taken steps to create the environment for investment, which I think is important."However, the chaiwala turned Prime Minister also has grabbed the attention of the world by making relentless foreign visits. Modi's only risky change to date, which backfired this spring is easing the government's ability to obtain land for development. When he tries to transform it into a permanent law the rejuvenated opposition declared Modi as "anti-farmer."Despite the low spirited ones commenting “where are the good days and why hasn’t growth picked up”?, analysts and economists nodded that India is on a very sound footing and feel we can now drive hard for growth.  But that doesn't mean that all the one year of time is a Golden period for the nation. Besides, the BJP blowing their own trumpet about the development, the nation has witnessed over the one year governance, it seems that the Government’s “Achche din” has came only for its leaders and the corporate heads. Much of BJP’s agenda is still lying on the paper.So when will Moid’s promises such as job growth and other businesses shed out their ‘Wait-and-See’ mode and get a quick start? Wait and see. - Manohar

Coming to the film career, for her chubby body and tempting looks, Sameera was roped as a heroine opposite stars like Chiranjeevi and NTR. Though she managed to gain few fans, her influence is not felt much as most of her films in Telugu are not successful. This might be the reason for not opting Sameera into Telugu films again. But, at least for a few of her fans, if she starts her second innings, then that would be a celebration time for all such fans.By Phani

Whenever we are in sorrow, few of our friends ask us to get back soon and smile. But smiling  might not be possible in few situations. But in Oxford, the people are forced to smile, and if at all they failed in it, Oxford imposes fine.The buskers (People who play music in the streets and begs money) in Oxford have to smile and entertain the people and themselves in the streets. Otherwise a fine of  £1,000 (approximately Rs.100000) would be collected from such buskers who failed to smile. Oxford has further assured the buskers to use street furniture, such as public seats, lamp posts, railings  and can sell CD's and also ask for money after performing the music. The only big condition of it is, not to obstruct highways as it causes a heavy disturbance to the traffic. In a trend where the people are genius in making people cry, breaking that trend, Oxford is aiming at making the people smile. I think a hats off sign is needed towards Oxford now. By Phani

Basha, one of the remarkable films to Rajini, his fans and in fact to the Indian cinema. It is now heard that he is planning for a sequel to the film. Previously, there are many gossips that rounded the film industry regarding this project, but none were proved to be true. In fact, it was heard that, Rajini opined that a remake to such a big hit film is very risky and so dropped the project. But it seems to be like Rajini is essaying a similar role in P.A. Ranjith's film. According to the sources, Rajini is playing a role of an underworld don in the film. If that is true , then there is an every chance of this role to be identified with Rajini's Basha. So, it is obviously a big challenge to Ranjith to direct Rajini in this role. Hope he do not drop the confidence of Rajini and thus gain the hearts of millions of Rajini fans with this remarkable Rajini's character in the film. By Phani
