NEW DELHI: Is there a mysterious X-factor that makes waters of the river Ganga special?
Nothing has been conclusively found even though many theories have swirled around for a long time. In what seems a final push, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government is seeking to finally resolve the mystery. A huge multi- institution effort costing over Rs 150 crore is underway to scientifically resolve the enigma of this so called 'Brahma Dravya'.
Ganga is undoubtedly one of India's holiest rivers and for eons its waters are known to possess some so called 'magical' properties that ensure that its waters don't spoil even when stored for years. This is often called the self-cleansing property of the river.
Ganga is the lifeline for about 300-400 million people who reside in its basin which is over 2,500 km in length. Yet today the Ganga is one of the most polluted rivers of the world with water pollution levels at places thousands of times the permissible levels. Yet the devout take a dip in the river unmindful of the toxic soup they immerse into.

This is of course a lot like how India's dominant Left-wing media have treated Narendra Modi. And of course Modi's election to PM immediately burst the bubbles of shrill rhetoric from Left-wing critics that India's streets would be ablaze if he took office, because nothing of the sort happened. The fact that the Left-wing die-hards are now trying to revise history with revisionist somersaults only shows how obsessed they are with shoving their narrative down everyone's throats.
How will Moody's react if Trump is elected president? Will we see them issue some dire economic warning that a Trump presidency could result in domestic unrest and instability, derailing US economic recovery? Will US Fed Chief Janet Yellen start lecturing the Whitehouse on tolerance, prompting Trump to tell her "YOU'RE FIRED!" and will we see prominent "intellectuals" hand back their awards to the Whitehouse? Who will be the American counterpart to Amir Khan - will it be Sean Penn? Will Michael Moore dust off his filmmaker cap?
To hear the Left-dominated media tell it, trans-nationalism is the only acceptable political position, and any opposition to that - any type of nationalism - is automatically fascism.

Another testament to the benefits of a multi-competitor playing field. If ISRO could spin off its launch operations to a private sector player, who knows what innovations might result?
Hopefully, the eventual electoral verdict from US voters will repudiate the NYT just as India's voters gave a strong reply to NYT's fulminations against Modi.

- IS finds Indian Muslims 'inferior': South Asian and African IS fighters have a disproportionately high level of casualties as they are forced to the
frontlines as foot soldiers. The six Indians killed so far are Athif
Vaseem Mohammad (Telangana), Mohammad Umar Subhan (Karnataka), Maulana
Abdul Kadir Sultan Armar (Karnataka), Saheem Farooque Tanki
(Maharashtra), Faiz Masood (Karnataka) and Mohammad Sajid alias Bada
At times, the 'inferior fighters' are given a vehicle loaded with explosives, asked to go near a destination and call a certain number. They are told the purported individual would come and meet them to explain the mission. However, as soon as the number is dialed, the car explodes due to a pre-set mechanism aimed at destroying a specific target.
- Why Pakistan persecutes the minority Ahmadi group: "In Pakistan, it is very easy for people who want to settle scores with their enemies to accuse them of blasphemy. They know that there are immediate arrests in blasphemy cases, and sometimes people are killed on the spot."
- Madhuchandan, a software engineer from US is making farmers richer! "Our agriculture scientists are misleading farmers. Once a group of farmers were advised to set the waste on fire after the sugarcane field was harvested. The fire actually destroys the micro-organisms that are needed to maintain the soil fertility. The biggest drawback of our country is that we have agriculturists who have lot of theoretical knowledge but have no practical wisdom. Our agriculture universities should have experienced farmers instead of experts," points out Madhu.
- India should master Solar Thermal: Solar thermal technology only works in hot sunny countries. The price is
falling, and its growing capacity to store energy is arousing
interest. The cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels is falling much
faster but the International Energy Agency expects them both to play a
part in an energy revolution which is likely to see solar as the
dominant source of electricity globally by 2050.
Paddy Padmanathan of Saudi-owned ACWA Power, which is running the Moroccan solar-thermal project, said: "Whether you are an engineer or not, any passer-by is simply stunned by it. You have 35 soccer fields of huge parabolic mirrors pointed to the sky which are moveable so they will track the Sun throughout the day."

Meanwhile, an interesting new conjecture from the world of physics says that quantum entanglement may be the basis for spacetime, the basic fabric of the universe:
Now that France has experienced its own 26-11 attack, Europeans are suddenly re-thinking their attitudes towards immigration and unending accommodation of non-assimilating cultures.
This is something that can help Europeans to understand the problems that India has been grappling with, and the reason why nationalist backlash has been provoked across India. Until now, it's the global Leftist fraternity who have collaborated across the world to reinforce each other's message. We Indians should look at the opportunity for conservatives and nationalists from the various countries across the world to similarly collaborate and collectively oppose the slanted narrative of the global Left.

I didn't suggest a database-a reporter did. We must defeat Islamic terrorism & have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2015
Here is Trump's own clarification and rebuttal
Notice how the reporter basically feeds Trump the line in order to put words in his mouth. The reporter literally asks, "SHOULDN'T WE HAVE databases to track Muslims in this country?"
He doesn't ask "Should we have.." - instead he asks "SHOULDN'T WE HAVE..." (ie. "let's have this") in order to manufacture the controversy. Partisan hatchet-journalism.
Also, read this exposé from Breitbart:
Given that we Indians have dark skin, it would be relatively easy for any of us to approach a white lefty politician and fool him into making certain ethnic-pandering marks that he'd stereotypically expect us to feel delighted about, but which might not go down well with the rest of society.
Another Friday, another jihadi terrorist attack. Some eyewitness reports claim that the gunmen let people go if they could recite certain verses from the Koran.
Indian govt should get its guard up, and be prepared for any potential attempted terrorist attacks on its home soil or abroad.
UPDATE: Security forces have stormed the hotel and reportedly freed 80 hostages so far. 20 Indians are still trapped.
For the past six years since he has been the resident of 10 Downing Street, the British prime minister, David Cameron, has hosted a Diwali party. This year was no different. With his battleaxe minister for employment, Priti Patel, guiding him through a photo-hungry clutch of British Indian guests - mainly those with some links with the Conservative Party -Cameron was an epitome of affable charm, qualities that come to him quite naturally.
In a speech that resonated with his brand of kind, caring, new conservatism, Cameron elaborated on the great success story of British Indians. Yes, he admitted, there were still glass ceilings they had to encounter in many spheres but these too were being negotiated. With their commitment to the values that are quintessentially British, Cameron said he looked forward to the day when the United Kingdom would have a British-Indian prime minister. To cap it all, and amid some vigorous claps, he said he looked forward to welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi the following day both in Downing Street and at Chequers, his official country house.
Modi, it would be fair to say, fascinated him. "I find it hard," he said "to fill up Wembley Town Hall and here you will have Prime Minister Modi speaking to a full house in Wembley Stadium."
Cameron has a reputation for saying and doing the "right thing" to suit the occasion. But this was not the former public relations man in him speaking. Like most Britons, Cameron was genuinely intrigued by Modi's ability to draw large, enthusiastic crowds - even in the UK, where the audience doesn't vote in Indian elections. In addition, Cameron has personally invested in the UK-India relationship - having made three visits to India before an Indian prime minister returned the courtesy. There is, of course, an innocent explanation as to why he waited 18 months before his Air India flight touched down in London: he had been quite wrongly advised that Labour would win the general election and that, under the circumstances, it would be better for him to wait for the new prime minister.

Please go through the attached statement, released today in response to two recent statements by groups of historians more or less representing the Leftist School of Indian historiography in India and overseas. The matter is of great importance — it concerns the way in which Indian students learn about India and the image they develop of their country and culture.
We have also placed the statement online as a petition for those who would like to register their support of our statement. If you do, may I request you to kindly spare a few minutes to:
· Sign the online petition (the procedure is very simple and takes two or three minutes)
· Forward this email to your networks so as to reach out to as many people as possible and ask them to consider signing the petition.
