    4 or 5 months from the 2019 general election, and the BJP has lost 5 states today. 5 states. Yep.

    India's 1st cow minister among 13 of 19 Raj ministers who lost

    I said it before, no development, no votes. Cow and communal politics have got no place in today's world.

    Here's one for the ticked off list


    How a 5-km rail bridge brings upper Assam 170 km closer to Delhi | IE | Dec 2018

    From 2017, longest bridge was completed

    Dhola-Sadiya bridge | IE | May 2017

    Should speed up access to Arunachal in a contingency

    BJP set to rule in Assam for a long time after this : )



    We always hear about the potential of the NE, time for it to be realised

    India doesn't have 2000 crore ~ 300 mil USD for critical defense infrastructure? Someone's got to be a freaking idiot.

    India to procure 72,400 assault rifles from US for frontline soldiers

    Fraud university issue: India asks US not to deport detained Indian students against their will

    America had great, not that great, kinda' okay Presidents earlier. What's going on now is not alright. President Trump is isolating America and Americans worldwide. This needs to stop. Americans need to understand that with your President's foolish policies, China is growing in strength everyday. Fear the day when the dragon becomes so powerful so as to spit fire on your land from thousands of miles away.

    Okay, so some of those students knowingly did what they did and got kicked out of the US. Some of these people take the corrupt and scam mentality wherever they go.

    Double whammy: Students return from US only to stare at loan burden

    US considers withdrawal of zero tariffs for India: Report

    Policies change in India all the time. Nothing is stable. Seriously, when will the dimwits ever learn. The budget has been a populist one, not expected from the government which holds a majority. But, we're a welfare state. Rob the tax-payers and pay the poor. 5 years, 5 god darned years.

    DE, how much is a bottle of Jack in US? Here it's around INR 4600. Maybe I'll get it cheap here afterall.

    Don't know much about guns, so, how good are these Sig Sauer Assault Rifles? Better than AKs?

    Also in the pipeline are: 44000 LMGs, and 44,600 Carbines.
