    I didn't call him a bhakt. He said he himself thinks people might label him a bhakt and I said people may not be wrong if you don't criticise the BJP. I haven't said he is a bhakt and I have no view on it regarding bharani. He is very pro bjp.

    He did call me Congress some thing and also said I am raising issues of taxes as I have some thing to hide which is an attack which most people use these kind of attacks when points are raised against BJP. I am not a Congress bhakt for the record. Indira Gandhi was a dictator like Modi and I can say that freely. On another note , can Bharani say the same thing ? I don't think so.

    Not really. He misses the nuances and comes to weird conclusions as above. He is a fair enough poster with good intentions but the weird conclusions and jumping the gun is far too many for some one who posts so much. Then, one has to explain to him how his jumping the gun was jumping the gun.

    Do you think you might have jumped the gun on explaining to him how his jumping the gun was jumping the gun?

    Rule of thumb: For every percentage point growth in GDP, 2 million Indians rise above the poverty line.

    Wasn't being entirely serious TBF. It is a bit of an annoying problem, not that making a rule will change much.

    I always prefer the upper berth, can sleep all day. Often if I am travelling alone, some family with a lady or an elderly person will ask me to swap and take their upper berth, which I usually do gladly.

    Yeah the real worry was always about missing the station at 7 AM or so. There are days when you get such good sleep on the train that even the alarm cant wake you up.

    It's rubbish because these things can't be resolved by invoking rules on the ground. Someone wants to use middle berth for sleeping at 9 pm and you tell them they can't because official timings? That doesn't work, you come across as (and probably are) an asshole, and makes everything less pleasant all around.

    Hope they also remove the chains from the steel mugs in the toilets. Modi needs to put that on his agenda, pronto.

    I am not sure of the nitty gritty of it all but I will fight anyone who seems to think it is bad to ensure traceability across finances. How that information is used is of course a different story. Also, with respect to GDP, isn't it a reality of the Mfg and IT industry slow downs and visa restrictions and the higher costs the main industries of the country are now bearing?
