“He landed in Delhi around 11 a.m. He was dressed in comfort wear,” a source told  IANS.

Brand will be staying at a reputed luxury hotel in the capital, and will head out to complete some formalities before preparing himself to regale his Indian fans here.

Best known for his comic acts in movies like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to the Greek”,  Brand, who is enamoured with yoga, last visited India to get married to pop star Perry in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan.

The Chuckle Festival made a big bang entry into the Indian comedy scene in 2013 with contribution from world renowned comedians such as Gabriel ‘Fluffy’ Iglesias, Eddie Ifft and Paul Varghese.

Brand, the livewire comedian, is expected to bring the house down with his unique brand of humour.

Also adding to the heightened hilarious experience will be popular Indian comedian Papa CJ, who has performed across the world.

  • RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is a is an Indian right-wing
  • RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat expressed his views on Indian Army’s preparation in his speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar
  • Kiren Rijiju said if the Constitution permits, RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wants to re-mould the Indian State with a military which adheres to Hindutva, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said.

This is the message that emerges from RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar that while the Army takes six to seven months to train its soldiers, the RSS can get its cadres ready for battle in two to three days, the CPI-M said.

“This remark has drawn widespread condemnation, with the main criticism being that the RSS chief had insulted the Indian army by claiming that the RSS can do a better job than the Army in training soldiers,” an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy,” said.

“While this criticism is valid, the intent of these remarks is much more serious,” it said. “The statement has revealed a vital aspect of the RSS outlook about the Army and the militarization of society.”

The editorial said: “What the RSS wants in the re-moulding of the Indian State is armed forces which adhere to Hindutva. For Bhagwat, the soldier in the Indian Army and the Swayamsevak of the RSS are on the same footing.

“Under the present Indian Constitution, such an integration of the Army and the RSS is not possible.

That is why, both the RSS clarification and the defence put out by (Minister of State for home) Kiren Rijiju makes this qualification that if the Constitution permits, the RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

“The implication is ominous: a re-worked Constitution should enable this to happen.”
