1428- Political retorts- got bitter not better!

"Tamilnadu's lady is better than Gujarat's Modi"
Tamil Nadu's growth is not because of the lady (Jayalalithaa) or Mody; it is because of my daddy (Karunanidhi)!

1427- All the pampering till the polls only...A POLITICALLY CORRECT JOKE:


While walking down the street one day a 'Member of Parliament' is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. 'Welcome to heaven,' says St. Peter. 'Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you.'

'No problem, just let me in,' says the man.

'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.'

'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,' says the MP.

'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.' And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises... The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

'Now it's time to visit heaven.'

So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

'Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.'

The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: 'Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.'

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. 'I don't understand,' stammers the MP. 'Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?'

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, 'Yesterday we were campaigning.. ....and....

1426- Only for Narendra Modi fans...

India is running on trial and error........
Error was congress and now trial will be BJP!
read this ..
Recently, India's most well-known film script-writer Salim Khan (actor Salmaan Khan's father) has said to a senior journalist in an interview: "Does anyone remember who the chief minister of Maharashtra was during the Mumbai riots which were no less deadly than the Gujarat riots of 2002?

Does anyone recall the name of the chief minister of UP during Malliana and Meerut riots or that of the Bihar CM when the Bhagalpur or Jamshedpur riots under Congress regimes took place?

Do we hear names of earlier chief ministers of Gujarat under whose charge, hundreds of riots took place in post-Independence India?

Does anyone remember who was in-charge of Delhi's security when
the 1984 massacre of Sikhs took place in the capital of India?

How come Narendra Modi has been singled out as the Devil Incarnate as if he personally carried out all the killings during the
riots of 2002?"

No speck of doubt about what Salim Khan has said.
* * * *
When one says Gujarat's agriculture growth is 10-11% since whole last decade
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says he made the Asia's biggest solar plant,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat is the only state in the whole of India to provide 24*7 and 365 days electricity to almost all of its 18,000
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says - World Bank's statement of 2011 said, Gujarat roads are equivalent to international standards,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat is the first State in country to have "high speed wireless Broadband service in its all 18,000 villages,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Forbes Magazine rated Ahmadabad as the fastest
growing city in India and 3rd in the world,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat Tourism is growing faster than ever before,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says according to central govt's Labour Bureau's report, Gujarat has the lowest unemployment rate in country,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When Narendra Modi is being chosen as the best current Indian leader in
almost all surveys & polls again and again
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says 2003-2013 are the only 10 straight years in Gujarat history which are totally riot-free,
The other STILL says 2002 Riots!

But when we remind them about riots which occurred during Congress and in Communist Party rule :

Bengal....5,000 to 10,000 dead ...CONGRESS RULE.

Ranchi....200 DEAD..........CONGRESS RULE.

Ahmedabad...512 DEAD........CONGRESS RULE.

Bhiwandi....80 DEAD.............CONGRESS RULE.


Moradabad...2,000 DEAD...CONGRESS RULE.

Nellie Assam.....5,000 DEAD...CONGRESS RULE.

anti-Sikh Delhi...2,733 DEAD...CONGRESS RULE

Bhiwandi....146 DEAD....CONGRESS RULE

Gujarat.....300 DEAD..CONGRESS RULE

Ahmedabad......59 DEAD.....CONGRESS RULE


Bhagalpur......1,070 DEAD......CONGRESS RULE

Hyderabad......300 PLUS DEAD....CONGRESS RULE

Mumbai....900 TO 2000 DEAD....CONGRESS RULE

Aligarh....176 DEAD.....CONGRESS RULE

Surat.......175 DEAD.....CONGRESS RULE

they become totally deaf ..................because they have no answer.
The youth of India says:............

We are not interested in 2002, We are interested in 2022!

As George Bernard Shaw opined-
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
Indira Gandhi, Lalu, Jaylalita, Mamata, Maya,Modi, chandrababu, Jagan, Kejriwal, even Sonia- all are UNREASONABLE persons only. Progress or change or scams- are achieved only by these UNREASONABLE persons!

!423- Quotes from the Hindi movie 'Oh My God!" (2008)

"मैं ख़ुश हूँ , क्योंकि खुश होना मेरे बस में है I
औरोंको हस्ते देख मनू I हसो और सुख पाओ I
अपने खुश को विस्त्रृत करलो I सभ को ख़ुशी बनाओ I "
 -शंकर प्रसाद कामायन

इनसान खुशियों के पिछे भागता रहता है I
लेकिन समझनेवाली ये बात है की-
सुख को दु:ख में बरबाद कर देना या दु:ख को सुख में तबदीर करदेना
इनसान के हाथ में ही है I
