I'm referring to Modi's beard which has been the subject of a lot of discussions on our media channels in the past year.

Apparently, Pakistan is scared to Modi's beard, if that makes any sense
Ah, I was thinking about the top of his head. The beard is impressive. :lol:

Wonder what they make of the recent "standoff " involving China
Enough whatsapp forwards on how India came out on top and China was shown their place. They believe India didn't lose a single inch but showed China that we are not a country to be messed up with. In the same messages you will also have how Nehru and Congress gave away a million sq miles of area to China and how good we have it with the BJP in power.

What are there views on "anti-national" congress merging the kingdom of sikkim as a state in the the union of India in 1975 ?

Under nehru, India fought and lost that territory. Under modi, India looked the other way when china occupied our territory and then lied to its citizens that no incursions happened. I want to see treason trials held in India some time in the future where all these liars are tried and convicted and hanged in the lawns of India Gate on live tv.

'Denied Hospital Bed, Was Not Given Food, Water': BJP MLA Struggles To Get Treatment For Wife In UP
"If an MLA's wife cannot be given proper care, what will the common man do?," said BJP MLA Ram Gopal Pappu Lodhi

A two-minute video of a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA expressing disappointment over the lack of medical infrastructure and apathetic attitude of the hospital management in Uttar Pradesh has been doing the rounds on social media. BJP MLA from Jasrana in Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh, Ramgopal Pappu Lodhi, shared his ordeal and said that he was not able to arrange a hospital bed for his wife Sandhya Lohi who tested positive for coronavirus.

His wife was denied a bed at one of the hospitals in Agra, reported Scroll. The city, like other parts of the state, has been reeling under a shortage of hospital beds, reported India Today.


"Whatever they happened with us, I pray to God that this does not happen to anyone else. If an MLA's wife cannot be given proper care, what will the common man do?," said the MLA.

Despite Highest Number of Daily Cases, India Does Not Label Itself in Community Transmission Category

WHO report says India is yet to label itself in the category of community transmission (CT), opting instead for the lower, less serious classification called ‘cluster of cases’.

Countries such as the United States, Brazil, United Kingdom, France have labelled themselves as being in ‘community transmission’.

India, since the beginning of the pandemic, has never marked itself as being in community transmission.

Facts don't matter to these people. Every pro-Congress stuff is considered propoganda by them. They have been radicalised completely.

My Uncle (Dad's brother) said yesterday that 25 years later people will look back and say how lucky we were to have Modi as a Prime Minister. In the middle of the worst crisis in the nation since the partition, in which our government is the worst performing government in the world when it comes to handling Covid he actually really feels lucky to have Modi as a PM (put in the fact that we have had two deaths in our home from Covid in April). And this is not isolated, a lot of people are in an alternate reality where they believe no one else could have done any better.

Every time I come to this thread I wonder how those of you who are in India aren't losing your shit completely over what's going on in India. Modi is still by far the favourite to win the 2024 elections and if he does I have no doubt our days as a democracy will swiftly come to an end even if we continue living in denial about it.
