Everything related to Indian culture, news, history etc...

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Revellers celebrated traditional Mashaan Holi in Varanasi, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The attendees performed the Holi by throwing ashes of cremated bodies mixed with lively colours at each other, in a ritual which pays respect to the dead.
  3. Note to self.... only buy top shelf liquor when traveling.... ;-)
  4. Yes or overthink, sometimes governments think what the other nations would do if they act batlantly This is out of this post but for example what is happening in Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, why The United States has not invade if they have said that these regions, specially Nicaragua for being closer to the USA are a threat to USA security, one reason is because they think what Russia, and the rest of comunnist countries partners would do...
  5. This "Modi" President of India will not go down as a thinker when history is written. Someone needs to send him a message about how 90% of his population lives in poverty. (don't quote me on the %) But I'm sure whatever the exact number is... it's TOO HIGH.
  6. @Nicole Evidently no one told them that we now live in a world of nuclear bombs that the Chinese had long before them. OR Maybe no one thought about how one Chinese bomb could make the whole bridge or rail line unusable in the case of actual military march into India People just don't think anymore.
  7. Politics as usually... The new strategic infrastructure being built on the north bank is called the Strategic Rail-Road Link and will allow rail and road access to Upper Assam and eastern Arunachal Pradesh – the northeastern tip of India. In the event of a Chinese attack on Arunachal, troops and equipment from mainland India will travel on the existing south bank railway till Bogibeel, cross the Brahmaputra on the new bridge and then head further east on the Strategic Rail-Road Link, once it is ready.
      Hello guest!
      Hello guest!
  8. They can spend this amount on a bridge while 1/2 their population still doesn't own a toilet? What am I missing?
  9. I am glad this is in #AJOpinion, because it is ONLY someone's over-thought opinion. Anyone that understands "arm's length" transactions knows the logic is bogus.. It is like Ray Steven's song and chart about how he is able to PROVE, through reason and logic, that he is his own Grandfather. The logic may be unassailable, but in the REAL WORLD it is a complete fantasy. Such is the power of words. It is clear that some people make a good living playing with words.

  10. As per my experience with public transport, many of these drivers are stressed by dealing with passengers all day long, everyday, for fullfilling with schedules not matter how traffic is, besides their own personal problems. They vent driving fast. I've had some arguements with some of them for driving so fast, and exposing us. In some countries public transport consist in old, fully depreciated buses, crowded by all kind of passengers including thieves, if you complain they tell you: "Buy your own Car"
  11. I can't understand the local language of this report... but there is more footage:
  12. At least 25 passengers were killed after a bus plunged into a canal in Mandya district of Karnataka on Saturday. The incident happened at VC canal of the Cauvery river in Kanaganamaradi village of the Pandavapura taluk. Most of the deceased are school students. According to the locals, the bus plunged in the canal around 12.25pm. The locals who saw the bus plunging in the canal water rushed to rescue the passengers. A boy who jumped out of the bus is the only survivor in this accident.
  13. If I were a parent of one of these kids I would be screaming holy h*@#&#@#@ at this driver / company. $$%#$# I'm not even a parent and 8,000 miles away and I feel like screaming at the driver / company.
