Imagining India - A Book Review
India Forum: Comments, Opinion - Information Resource
News Summary: At first glance, Nandan Nilekanis Imagining India is daunting.500+ pages, densely packed with statistics, policy prescriptions and anecdotes do not make for easy bedtime reading.yet I found it highly engaging and written in a very readable style. If there was ever a book you wished that reflected a birds eye of what ails India, Imagining India would come pretty close to it.On the very first page, in the preface, Nandan Nilekani recalls a conversation with a visitor in which he was asked:Why dont.....read more in: Imagining India - A Book Review

I have read both the English and Tamil versions of this book.

This Tamil version is also the true Translation of it original. I am also surprised that it is translated by an ex-Muslim ....

S.Ghosh on May-27 : Hussain, Nithyananda, Media & Deception [9 comments]

It is essential not to pass judgement in these matters. A lot of Hindu Guru Maharajs, Mohantas, Swamis are only money-hungry, sex-hungry cheats. They hardly know anything about Hindu religion.

Do not forget Bhagwan Rajnish. There are many like him in this Guru business.
David on Aug-04 : Koran, Amsterdam and Calcutta Court [184 comments]

Hindus go thru useless arguments with Moslim (read illogical, empty headed)to convince them how peaceful and benevolent Hindus are (read cowards, gutless and sell anything for Roti, Kapadaa and Makaan). That conversation proves totally useless and going nowhere. Need guts to expose true face of Islam and its third rate messenger"s private life...to....

Dont know why Pakistan is inciting people to wage war against India. Neighbourly relations if they are smooth and peaceful, will reduce the budgetary cost. Pakistan should stop trying to win over India by sending Kasavs but by showing friendly relations in commerce and industry. Defence cost will be nearly half if Pakistan feels that it is a frien....

There is no shortage of competition in the retail markets: there are millions of small traders competing each day with each other. Wal Maqrt will destroy their earnings, as it did in USA-UK where most small gocer shops vanished leaving the city centres deserted. In Japan, they do not allow Wal-Mart; thus, they still have many small convenience stor....
