On December 11,2017, in Mumbai, Maharastra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta Fadnavis launched a “Be Santa Campaign” at a function organized by a local radio FM channel. The holy intent was to to “collect gifts from people -for poor children ,to bring smiles to their faces during this Christmas.Drop ur gifts at nearest @927BIGFM & Feel the joy”, tweeted Ms. Amruta.

I have been living in the US since last 15 years and have never heard of anyone launching a “Be Rama Campaign” on the occasion of Deepwali. Ms. Amruta Fadnavis and the folks like her are falling into the trap of Christian Missionaries whose single most agenda is to convert people of other faiths to Christianity. As the Pope Francis rightly put it on his recent trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh: “I am coming to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a message of reconciliation, forgiveness, and peace.” There is nothing wrong in taking the Gospel forward, but remember that the Missionary machinery has an inherent intent proselytize (convert)!


When there was outcry on social media as to why Amruta Fadnavis was doing it as a first lady of Maharastra, she seemed to stand her ground and stated that “Love , sharing & empathy have no religion – let’s accept all positivity around us & stay away from negative thoughts & demotivating energies!”

As Dr. David Frawley right says: “Christian efforts to usurp and subvert native cultures and pagan traditions has a long history. Hinduism remains a prime target.”

But Indians and Hindus in the name of modernity, liberty and secularism fail to understand the bigger evil designs of “Break India” forces. They are rightly called Libtards.

Alas! Ms Amruta Fadnavis did the same yesterday. If she is a bit conscious of these facts, she must stand up and also declare that let us ask Christians to stop conversions.

The Centre will launch a pilot project on the use of indigenously manufactured drones for delivering medicines in the undulating landscape of Jammu and surrounding areas from Saturday

The Centre will launch a pilot project on the use of indigenously manufactured drones for delivering medicines in the undulating landscape of Jammu and surrounding areas from Saturday with a focus on vaccines delivery initially. "This is going to be a pilot project for the area. The drone is developed and manufactured entirely by our scientists," Union Minister for Science & Technology, Dr Jitendra Singh told mediapersons. Singh said he himself will be launching the project at Jammu.

The drone is developed by the scientists at Bengaluru's National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), a constituent of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), an autonomous Society that is headed by the Prime Minister. For now, the delivery would be limited to Covid vaccines and once successful, it would be expanded to be used for regular delivery of medicines in the remote, hilly areas.

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry.

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan shares how he feels when people compare him with his father Amitabh Bachchan on the singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'. He also requests contestant Rajshree Bag to sing a track 'Bahon Mein Chale Aao' featuring his mother Jaya Bachchan.

Abhishek said after looking at the performance of Rajshree, who is often compared with Lata Mangeshkar on the show, that she reminds him of being compared with his father. "Rajshree, whenever I have got the chance to watch the show, I've seen people compare you to Lata didi. It actually reminded me about how people compare me with my father and ask me how I feel about it."

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry and this is what he says to everyone making these comparisons. "My answer to them is that there's no greater actor in this film industry than Amitabh Bachchan and if I'm being compared to him, I am sure I must have done something good."

"Similarly, your voice has a different kind of magic like Lata ji and that's why people are comparing your voice with her. I feel you should always take this as a compliment," he concluded. 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' airs on Saturday and Sunday on Zee TV. (IANS/ MBI)

Winters in India have always beckoned for that hot, steaming bowl of tomato and pepper rasam or the mellow, millet based Raab. Certain dishes like sarson ka saag, undhiyu, nimona pulao are winter specialites in the country. Seasonal food has always been an Indian speciality -- we switch our choice in fruits, vegetables, sometimes even grains with the onset of different season. The preference of using specific ingredients during certain climates is visible in our sweets as well. It's common to find local and traditional delicacies made of jaggery, instead of sugar during the winters. Case in point -- the Nolen Gur Rasgulla, a speciality made in Odisha and West Bengal between November to February.
