New Delhi, March 10, 2017-

Dear Mr. Kejriwal:

My name is Jai Nath Misra and I have lived in London, UK for over 60 years. I belong to AAP supporters group which you are quite familiar with.You may recall I came to Delhi in September 2013 about three months before the Delhi Vidhan Sabha election with a view to help AAP in its election campaign. During the campaign, I shared the ‘manch‘ with you on many occasions but never had the chance to have a one to one conversation.

Jai Nath Misra

Over the last two and a half years that you have been CM of Delhi in my view, you have completely drifted away from the core principles of AAP as enunciated by you and others in the book ‘ Swaraj’.

Removing the list of donors from the AAP website was the last straw that broke the camels back and as a result, I now write to you from the platform of ‘Chanda bandh Satyagraha’ that we have initiated against the opaque financial practices of AAP, led by Dr. Munish Raizada.

Your latest ploy of making Delhi to look like London is yet another jumla or sound bite to fool Delhi electorate. I have lived in U.K. For over 60 years and I know that it has taken almost the same number of years for the development of London to arrive at its present state of a well-developed city.

Can I, therefore, ask you as to how you propose to change Delhi in next two and a half years to look like London? If you recall your previous statement where you said ‘ give me power and I will give you a chamchamati (shining) Delhi’. Two and a half years later with you as CM of Delhi. it remains a heap of garbage.

Don’t you think sir, that it is time for you to have a complete change in your approach to govern Delhi and go back to the real constitution of AAP that you put your signature on!

Waiting for your reply!

Yours Sincerely,

Jai Nath Misra

Member of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha led by Dr Munish Kumar Raizada against AAP (

That shared love has gone full-circle this month as Narayan and Maliakel lead the Broadway company of the musical "Aladdin" out of the pandemic, playing Princess Jasmine and the hero from the title, respectively.

Jack Daniel's is the world's most popular whiskey brand, but until recently, few people knew the liquor was created by Nathan "Nearest" Green, an enslaved Black man who mentored Daniel.

"We've always known," says Debbie Staples, a great-great-granddaughter of Green's who heard the story from her grandmother. … "He made the whiskey, and he taught Jack Daniel. And people didn't believe it … it's hurtful. I don't know if it was because he was a Black man."
