  1. First up, let us not make this a big issue. There are many other things in this world that need our immediate attention. Secondly, Mr. Modi might be a democratically elected leader, but even a normal, civil human being would come forward to stop the atrocities that took place in Gujarat. Yes, I would prefer to call them as atrocities, not as "riots." Have you ever experienced the shock and trauma of it? I was so deeply affected by it during the Black moments of Hyderabad's history when the Babri masjid was attacked. Personally, I feel that rather than rueing the denial of a mere Visa to a CM, how about devoting some of your time to organizations such as Amnesty and WorldVision or whoever and work for the betterment of human kind. The present state of affairs as they are, the invasion of Iraq by the US and the ultimate destruction and agony they caused the people of Iraq, terrorism,'s all like the bloody middle ages. People fighting over stupid and barbaric that could be? Now, even the Iranians are working their asses towards the nukes.
    I mean, this is such a trivial thing to talk about! US refusing to grant visa to Mr. Modi...I mean, WTF, who cares! Care about the poor, to better the standard of life...not to think or "harp" about what a great nation we are! Its time for action, not's a neverending story, isn't it?

    yeah.. i understand your views....but we can't just ignore our national rights.....regarding the betterment of the poor, we need to work on the issue collectively and in the last 50 years i.e, after independence our society has improved a lot but definitely this should not be the end.....for action, movement is required and may be putting words in the right way can be an effective media . How can you forget the lesson: Pen is Mightier than Sword?
