#KLRahul #IndVsAus

In terms of arrogance, Ricky Ponting was worse than Steve Waugh and Steve Smith is worse than Ponting.

India required 87 runs off 1080 balls at the end of the third day in this match to win.
T20 enthusiasts in the future will simply not understand Test cricket.

The Jio Data revolution…

iphone-518101_640Desktop ho ya laptop ya ho mobile, 100GB per connection per device zaroori hone wala hai.
2017 will be year of Indian data explosion.

Reliance gives mobile data at fantastic rates.
That’s Jio.
All other players scramble to match that.
That’s Aur Jeene Do.

If all calls are free and mobile data is dirt cheap, then how will they make money?
Acche Din for consumers.
Bure Din for mobile operators.

Tum itna jo muskura rahe ho,
Kya Whatsapp forward hai jisko chhupa rahe ho?

Great for government.
Convenient for citizens.
Terrible for privacy.

When #YogiAdityanath took charge of Uttar Pradesh…

#YogiAdityanath looks like #VinDiesel.
The Left-liberal-media-intellectual-Lutyens lobby feels that Modi has pulled a Fast one on them and hence are Furious.

The world turned Left so much that it came around on the other side and became Right.
#Modi #Brexit #Trump #YogiAdityanath

Q: Kejri destroying Delhi.
Lalu destroying Bihar.
Mamata destroying West Bengal.
Your comments?
#AdarshLiberal: #YogiAdityanath “WILL” destroy UP!!!

In baseball, you don’t know nothing.
—Yogi Berra.
In politics, you don’t know nothing.
—#YogiAdityanath.

The future ain’t what it used to be.
—Yogi Berra.
That future is already here!
—#YogiAdityanath.

It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.
—Yogi Berra.
I know! Just look at me!
—#YogiAdityanath.

Whoever the media backs gets destroyed.
Whoever the media attacks does really well.

Most media outlets saying “controversial” Yogi appointed.
Have Pappu, Kejri, Lalu, Mamata, Nitish, Sonia, Sibal… seen no controversies?

Chief Ministers younger than Pappu…
#YogiAdityanath.
Devendra Fadnavis.
Pema Khandu.

BJP picks up youth leader to be Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
(Kyun bhai? #YogiAdityanath Pappu se do saal chhota hai, aur do baar jyaada Lok Sabha polls jeet chuka hai)

Lotus blooms in the mud.
UPA2 created so much mud all across the country, that the lotus is still spreading like wildfire.

From 2004-09 an extra constitutional authority ruled India with an abysmal mandate of 27% Lok Sabha seats.
Funny to see its supporters doubt every other mandate.

When Modi picked the Yogi…

#Modi
2002—Ye ab gaya!
2007—Ye ab gaya!
2009—Ye ab gaya!
2013—Ye ab gaya!
2015—Ye ab gaya! #DelhiBihar
2017—Ye ab gaya! #YogiAdityanath

Modi thrives when the Left-liberal-media-intellectual-Lutyens lobby attacks him 24X7.
They were slowing down but with #YogiAdityanath it’s game on again.

2001-13: Very few have really been able to predict what Modi will do and why.
Yet he has a near cent per cent success rate during this period.
#YogiAdityanath

1. Mulayam-Maya-Akhilesh have been abysmal Chief Ministers.
2. Modi has a clear development agenda for Uttar Pradesh.
3. He has put a Committee of 3 to rule Uttar Pradesh.

Target for seculars…
1980s hardliner—Vajpayee.
1990s hardliner—Advani.
2000s hardliner—Modi.
2010s ka hardliner mil gaya: Yogi Adityanath.

#IndVsAus #RanchiTest musings…

Pujara: Maine double century maara!
Sehwag: Bhai sahab, 521 balls main to main do do triple century maarta!

Rohit Sharma in ODIs: 264(173).
Cheteshwar Pujara in Tests: 202(525).

Cheteshwar Pujara makes India’s slowest double century in the history of international cricket (521 balls).

Maximum balls faced in an innings…
Wall I Gavaskar: 472.
Wall II Manjrekar: 422.
Wall III Dravid: 495.
Wall IV Pujara: 525.

Cheteshwar Pujara becomes India’s first Quintuple Centurion (in terms of balls faced—500) in the history of international cricket.

The power of Sidhu…

When he was with BJP, NDA was in power in Punjab.
Met Kejri and talk of AAP winning.
Joined Congress. And Congress won.

Cricketer.
Commentator.
Comedian.
Celebrity Judge.
Road Rage accused.
Film actor.
Lok Sabha MP.
Rajya Sabha MP.
Punjab Minister.
Sidhuisms.
God in TV serial.
#Sidhu

From being a small fish in a big pond (MP—Lutyens’ Delhi) to being a big fish in a small pond (Minister—Punjab), Sidhu is finally a winner.

General political musings of the day

CONGRESS
Care
Of
Nehru
Gandhi
Rajiv-Rahul
Emergency-Indira
Sanjay
Sonia

First you win, then they fight you, then they laugh at you, then they ignore you.
*They=People of India.
You=Pappu.
Win=2009 Lok Sabha win.

When they go low, we go high.
—Michelle Obama.
I’m always high no matter how low we go.
—Pappu.

When they go low, we go high.
—Michelle Obama.
When he goes high, we go low.
—Opposition on Modi.

Bihar-WB ruin continues;
Behenji is playing super victimhood;
Kejri is spouting utter nonsense;
Sonia’s abroad—
All’s normal with politics!

Prashant Kishore is like Manmohan Singh.
PK was good under Modi, but bad under Pappu-Akhilesh.
MMS was good under Rao, but bad under Sonia.

Opposition attacking Modi hysterically 24X7, ignoring voters and clueless about real strategy.
And you ask why Modi keeps winning.

It may be possible to beat Modi in 2019.
But not if the entire opposition runs around like headless chickens all the time.

Bad news for BJP.
Diggy Raja may be removed from Karnataka.
Shows Congress is serious.
Now if Pappu doesn’t campaign, then Congress has a fighting chance.

The current ABC of misgovernance…
Arvind
Banerjee
Congress.

AAP chose the broom to think that they would sweep all States.
Fate chose to sweep AAP out of all States, Delhi bhi jaayega.

Kejri will probably say to his workers…
We did not lose Punjab-Goa, but in fact we won.
That’s because we saw a 30% growth in total MLAs!

These versions by Sunil Rajguru

Hell with the percentages, just govern well…

parliament-2028311_640In the 1984 Indian Lok Sabha elections, the Congress got an amazing 75% Lok Sabha seats.

But their popular vote share was at a much lower 49.1%.

But the turnout was just 63.5%, so that means only 31% registered voters voted for Congress.

Bringing that down even further, only 11.5 crore out of a population of 76.5 crore voted for Congress.

Put that way, a mere 15% of the citizens of India decided the destiny of even the remaining 85% of the population.

As you can see bashing statistics non-stop is meaningless.

You can take any mandate and show it’s not a mandate.

But still three points stand out…

1. This is still better than military civil religious dictatorships and Communist States where 0.0001% of the population subjugates the remaining 99.9999%.
2. Whoever won, won fair and square depending on the laws of the land and the Constitution. If you don’t like the rules, change the rules in a democratic manner.
3. We may live in imperfect democracies, but still this is the best way of selecting someone to run the show. It is more important that after we elect someone, that person is held accountable and follows the path of good governance and development.

The fall and fall of Sri Sri Kejri Baba…

You can fool all the people some of the time (2011 August Kranti agitation), and some of the people all the time (Delhi 2013 and 2015 elections), but you cannot fool all the people all the time (2014 Lok Sabha elections, 2017 Punjab-Goa elections).
#Kejri

AAP’s internal survey has found that Kejri is already the Prime Minister of India and hence they can stop contesting elections henceforth.

Media created Kejri in 2011, launched him in 2013, boosted him in 2015.
Media created Akhilesh in 2012, boosted him till 2016.
Both busted in 2017.

Sees himself: Virtual Prime Minister.
Media/Modi Haters see him: Future Prime Minister.
Is: Glorified Delhi Mayor with Sisodia doing all his minuscule workload.

Some people live in Reality.
Others in Virtual Reality.
Kejri lives in Media Reality, the world of TV channels, advertisements and Twitter.

Delhi will be like London—Kejri.
Matlab kya?
Thames airlift karke laoge?
Big Ben-Buckingham Palace banaoge?
Shakespearean nautanki laoge?

The Modi tsunami continues with #2017Elections…

wave-1913559_640When Modi took over as campaign chief in 2013, Congress had more LS MPs, RS MPs, MLAs along with a Congress President and Vice President.
This year it will be all BJP.

Top 4 States by area—Rajasthan, MP, Maharashtra, UP.
All 4 BJP.
If BJP wins Karnataka in 2018—9/10 biggest States will be NDA.
Exception—Odisha.

1989-2009: Most polls were hung.
2012-2017: Most polls are very decisive.
How does the entire electorate of India change its mind at once?

Huge winner: BJP.
Runner-up: Congress.
Huge losers: BSP, SP, AAP

After the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Pappu will be inducted into the BJP, revealing that he was a secret agent all along, merely carrying out Mahatma Gandhi’s 1947 request of disbanding the Congress which was not needed as we had achieved freedom.

Narendra Modi has been #Remonetized.
Get ready for the next #SurgicalStrike.
