New Delhi: The Kejriwal vs Modi battle escalated to new heights when the Delhi Chief Minister vented his frustration at the Prime Minister by calling him a ‘coward’.

While the irked Aam Admi Party supporters were vociferous in their demand to know whether the CBI had the jurisdiction to barge into their Chief Minister’s office and seal it off, the Modi government clearly stated that they had nothing to do with the raid.


The frustration on the face of Kejriwal was evident as he took the refuge of social media platform to vent out his distress.

The more Kejriwal beefed up his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi via twitter, the more he became a laughing stock. And furthermore, he contradicted his own comments.

If CBI announces on the front page of a newspaper that it will raid a person, then it will be successful: Arvind Kejriwal. This tweet was published by ANI on 26th Oct 2012.

However, the Kejriwal supporters forgot that the CBI flaunted the court warrant for conducting the raids.

Even the former aide of Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav, said the Aam Admi Party was guilty of enacting ‘drama’ on the issue.

Kejriwal’s party drew immense flak after inquiries revealed the party worker’s involvement in corrupt practices. But in all cases, Kejriwal blamed Narendra Modi for the crackdown on AAP.

The Delhi Chief Minister always tried to channelize the issue into something different by claiming that Modi was unable to fight him politically and was using democratic institutions to disrupt the functioning of the Delhi state government.

Just one day before the CBI raid, Kejriwal lashed out at Railways officials for Shakur Basti demolition terming them as ‘animals’. But after the raid incident, Kejriwal’s sympathy for the Shakur Basti victims evaporated.

The activities of Kejriwal definitely rouse the doubts over his political charisma. Maybe he was a better bureaucrat than a politician. And his tweets do point towards the view.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
