RAISINA AWAITING UPIAN FACE

                                                                                          -Deoraj Singh

UP, as we know, has provided maximum PM in numbers to the country and is now going to deliver the next President of India. Well, Presidential elections in India epitomize real politics at its very best. It is like a game of cards, which players tend to keep close to the chest, waiting for the other side to make the first move or commit a mistake or call a bluff. There are no set rules, no set criteria. One player’s trump is another’s dummy. And at times, the entire exercise is reduced to a process of selection by elimination. Presidential elections are strewn with instances of wild card entries taking away the cake and eating it too.

The present electoral scenario reveals the intent of opposition parties as they know number is not in their favour despite that they will not leave the stone unturned. That’s why, opposition parties have named former Lok Sabha Speaker, Meira Kumar as their candidate for the next President of India, setting the stage for a contest between two Dalit leaders on July 17.

Cataclysmic Downpour At Mizoram

                                                                                         -Rashmi Mizar

We are all mesmerised with the onset of monsoon. At present, with the high temperatures prevailing around the globe leading to global warming, people are craving around with thirst, sweat and uneasiness as if the fire is bolting from the sun especially in the plain areas like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and so on with temperatures rising above 40 degree Celsius and on the other hand farmers struggling for the land to prevent it from deserting; at such a time they often look up at the sky with the hope that the God of Rain impels blessings on them with atleast a few droplets on their barren land. Rain to them is so soothing like a mother’s love to an infant. But do we still dare to see when we see the catastrophe of nature in some parts of India where people are becoming homeless due to heavy rainfall.
