This is a national English newspaper that is considered one of the 'most respected' English Daily. It enjoys a very loyal and a sincere subscription, that follows it every single day, along with a cup of hot coffee. Loyal readers of The Hindu swear by it, follow it verbatim, some even consider it a part of their preparation towards writing the Civil Services exam - IAS.

The fact is, this newspaper routinely publishes 'trash' and has misguided, belittled and fooled its readers, over all these years.

Today, it does it again, and with brazenness!

The headlines goes like this:

Modi accused of flouting flag code

 National Bureau



Mr. Modi signed on the tricolour for chef Vikas Khanna who said he would gift it to the U.S. President. File photo

The caption under the pic clearly states "Mr. Modi signed on the tricolour".

The story opens with a bang, accusing the Prime Minister signing the Indian Flag:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicked up a controversy after he autographed the Indian flag in New York
The whole story, spread over two columns, goes on and on, woven around legalities & acts, according to which one shall be:
"punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both".

Further, living up to its commitment to have always served the interests of the 'Dynasty' & 'Congress', almost as a part of solemn duty, inserts the statement issued by Congress spokesperson.

At the very end of the story, just as a casual rejoinder, it briefly mentions:
Late in the evening, the Director General of the Press Information Bureau, Frank Noronha, tweeted that the Prime Minister did not sign on the national flag.
Those who followed the story elsewhere on other newspapers must have read a more balanced version, with due clarification on what actually transpired.

FACT: Prime Minister Mr. Modi never actually signed the Tricolour. This newspaper knew exactly what had happened and yet they run the story with an intent to convey to its readers the contrary.

This post is not to clarify or counter the story, but once again, only to bring to the knowledge of all those sincere readers & followers of this newspaper, the sinister designs and the hidden slant that runs across its contents.

Story of Satpura

This blogpost is a compilation of several tweets from Careless Whispers . They are reproduced here as is, without much edits, except all hashtags have been removed.  This thread on Bori Sanctuary, Satpura National Park in Madhya Pradesh is triggered by video of tigress swimming. I showed the video to the man behind these projects. He was emotional seeing the video and then shared some interesting trivia. Please click here for Video (Video courtesy Shri Dhiraj Singh Chauhan, SDO Bori Sanctuary) Circa 1977-79 : True story as narrated to me by my father: Shri K S Saxena, ex-IFS (Forest Services) who developed both Satpura National Park & Bori Sanctuary from scratch, in Madhya Pradesh Bori was always a very rich & biodiverse dense forest, providing ideal setting for sanctuary. After extensive field work and follow up, it was Dr. Ranjitsinh , then Forest Secretary, Govt of MP, who decided to make a visit to Bori. Dr. Ranjitsinh insisted that father should accompany hi

Ideological Subversion

And then, there are the communists, Blacker hearts still. They feed on the pus of all this corruption, Like maggots in a corpse! And like maggots have left a swell, They will eventually swarm like flies, And spread their rotten philosophy, Across the country and across the world, Those then, Are our enemies! ~ Inspector Chester Campbell / The Peaky Blinders Post independence, India had the option to chose & follow a particular path to build its own destiny as a Sovereign Nation State in the new world order, after almost 1000 years of foreign rule. This opportunity was actually the result of those Freedom Fighters who laid their precious lives to liberate India from foreign rule. Unfortunately, they did not live to witness the national tricolour being hoisted on 15th August 1947. The real heroes of our freedom struggle are the ones who contributed immensely during the 90 years, starting with 1857 through 1947. They were the real sons of the soil, most of whom martyred as nameless &

Nero’s Guests, the age of inequality: A Review

The reason why I have taken up to write a review of Nero’s Guests is because it needs to be widely circulated, written and talked about, as much as possible; so that everyone gets to see it, those who still do not get the time to watch it, may further need to be motivated to do so, and only then it will reach out to the wider audience and be able to make a real impact. The mainstream media today is totally degenerated and corrupted as it does not cover anything that is not “breaking news” or that is not considered “glamorous” enough to catch eye balls. For this obvious reason, Nero’s Guests has been completely ignored by the mainstream media (both print & electronic) and is not given its due space & visibility. The subject itself is not new to any of us and it has become a part of our daily lives - mere statistics. It is about the severe agrarian crisis that the country is faced with, as a result of which farmers are still committing suicide and as many as 200,000 farmers h
