Which is the best city in India to settle and why?

Gandhinagar: Why you should move here?

Answer by Ajeet Panigrahi:

Well before I answer this question, I would like to say that I lived in many different cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata , Chennai, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Patna, Pathankot, Kochi, Nashik, Lonavala, Nicobar, Bhubaneshwar, etc.

But the city I liked the most and one of the city where anyone can live a peaceful and uninterrupted life goes like this:

1. The city is Planned, in a damn good way. It was planned by HK Mewada and Prakash M Apte, who worked as trainees under Legendary Architect Le Corbusier, the architect who designed Chandigarh. The plan somewhat looks like this.

2. Some one said about Greenery. This is the Greenest City in Asia with 54% forest cover of its total area. For instance, a normal city has 150 Trees per 100 persons, but this city has more than 400 trees per 100 which is very high.

3. Has a market place in every 1 Sq. Km where one can find all the basic daily needs.
4. Has got garden in every sector where people spend time with families.
Few of the Gardens are so well made that they do attract lots of people from outside.

5. The normal view of a road is like this. Its not a Highway, but only a Sector Road.

6. Temples! There is Akshar Dham, Gandhi Mandir, and many small temples in each sector.

7. Has got very less traffic. A busy day somewhat looks like this.

8. Pollution, naah, I couldn’t find any.

9. And the best part are the people. Gujjus are the best and one of the least violent people in entire country. Ther are always Maja Ma Che.

10.Mahatma Mandir..
Don’t be surprised, its not airport..

14. IT Parks (TCS Builiding) Many such buildings are coming up. Also to mention the first smartcity of India, GIFT City is also coming up.

15. This is how intersections/circles look like. There are many like these in Gandhinagar. They are just like mini parks built in between the roads.

16. And to all the Non Vegetarians out there, resist this if you can. For your information, that is completely vegetarian. (I am saying it being a non vegetarian).

There are many more things I can say but need to leave office.
And Yes the city is GANDHINAGAR, Capital of Gujarat.

Some things which I couldn’t add due to time constraints, added by Mithil Leua.
Edit 1: Sources added.
Edit 2: Some details of Interchanges and Food added.

Which is the best city in India to settle and why?

Which is the smartest Indian movie ever made?

Answer by Chetan Sameer:

I was so embarrassed when a film that so much deserved to be prefixed if at all the words greatest and smartest Indian movie were used didn’t find a slot in this page. And yes im talking about a Telugu film, “Mayabazaar”(1957). Before you differ, i would be pleased if you consider my view point.


Mayabazaar is a Mythological epic fantasy film directed by kadiri venkata reddy. It’s based on a fictional tale based on Mahabharata. It was the first multilingual indian film, also released in tamil and malayalam apart from telugu. The film boasts of stellar star  cast and crew, NT Rama Rao,Akkineni Nageswar rao,Sv ranga rao and the adorable savitri. These people were undoubtedly greatest actors in the history of telugu films. The film was made at whooping budget of Rs2,00,000INR and was the costliest indian film of that era.

  • And now comes the interesting part, the film was shot at a period when forget about computer graphics, a normal computer was a rarity in India. In such a scenario the film had terrific shots and artwork. During the rehearsals, Venkata Reddy noted the time each actor took to deliver his or her dialogues using a stop watch and calculated the length of each scene (including the song situations) thus arriving at the usage of negative film to the required length.
  • D. S. Ambu Rao, who was Bartley’s assistant, said that the film was shot strictly by the screenplay and light set by Bartley(legendry anglo indian cinematographer). For a particular song which was shot at ennore near chennai on a broad day light , the cinematographer with his expertise created a moonlight illusion with tricky camera angles, which awed the film fraternity.
  • Apart from the principal technicians and actors, a crew of 400 studio workers including light men, carpenters, painters and others worked on the film during its production stage.While erecting the set of Dwaraka, 300 miniature houses were created in about 50 x 60 electrified feet space, with no houses being made to look alike. All of them were erected under the supervision of the art director, Madhavpetti Gokhale and Kaladhar.
  • It took four days of filming to get the right effect for the “laddoo gobbling” shots of Ghatotkacha in the song sequence, “Vivaha Bhojanambu”.In the scene where Ghatotkacha, in the guise of Sasirekha, uses his foot to stamp Lakshmana Kumara’s foot, the expression was Savitri’s, while the foot used for stamping was that of the film’s choreographer Pasumarthi Krishnamurthy’s. He pasted false hair on his foot to give it the look of that of a demon’s.

(Originally in black and white, digitally colourised in 2007.)

Look at the shots below and try to figure out on how they managed to           do it without camera graphics in the year 1957.[These are .gif Images, im unsure if all browsers can play them]

​The shots above are only one of the many examples to be found in the film.whats surprising is that, till date few camera angles used in mayabazaar are still shrouded in mystery!!!

The first Movie to Conceptualize Laptop, Video Calling decades before they came into existence.

Everyone lauds the star trek series for predicting the future showing of ipads and video calling 2decades before they arrived.However it was Maayabazaar film that first showcased these gadgets for nearly a 50years before they were 1st released.


lord krishna(NTR) shows  abimanyu on a laptop like prototype with a skype like live video chat.

Legacy

  • At the international film festival held in india and indonesia during the year 1957, mayabazaar was presented only to receive world wide applause for its technical extravaganza and scintillating plot apart from boasting off the valor  of Indian mythology. Soon after, this film has been  made a case study at most of the worlds prestigious film universities.                                                                                            when was the last time an indian film drew world’s attention for its technical brilliance???
  • 56years later, in the year 2013 when CNN IBN conducted an extensive online voting on “Greatest indian Film ever” , Mayabazaar bagged the maximum votes.That’s quite a record, isn’t it??

I Always considered Mayabazaar as an Indian film rather than a telugu/south film. During an era when there was no youtube for tutorials, no proper communication channels for guidance from outside world, dont u think , Mayabazaar stands  out as the Smartest and greatest movie of all time??? ,,,I leave it to your discretion.

Answer by Yash Kotak:

I started my first company Lumos right after graduating from IIT Gandhinagar. Dreamy eyed noobs that we were, we made tons of mistakes.

I’ll mention the top 5 mistakes we made that led to our failure. But first the story to give you some background:

July 2014

In July, we started building smart internet connected switches that learn from user behavior and automate all the electronic appliances in a home.

We felt that it’s a pity that our search results and news feed are personalized to us but our homes, where we spend most of our time, are not.

We had a vision that our switches will learn and personalize the electronic appliances in a home to its owner. We decided to name the company Lumos.(Yes, I am a big Harry Potter Fan!)

We took some pre-seed investment from an angel investor and headed off to our alma mater IIT Gandhinagar to get incubated. We converted a lab into our office space and the Lumos saga started!

The Lumos Team at Work!

We built like crazy. That’s the thing about us engineers; if you give us something interesting to build, we will forget everything else and just build. Our first prototype, which automated lights, was ready in 45 days.

The second prototype, which could automate lights, fans, ACs and water heaters was out in another month. This is really fast according to hardware standards.

November 2014

In mid-November, we got a product designer on board to design the final product. In December, we were already in talks with investors to raise the next round of funding.

Our First PCB (That did not work :P )

We were on track to have a market-ready hardware product in less than one year. We were pleased with ourselves. The investors were pleased with us. Life was a bed of roses.

December 2014

Until it was not. We had underestimated the work that goes into making a market-ready hardware product. We had overestimated the demand and utility of our product.

Hardware products sell at 4x–5x the component costs. How did we not know this?!

We were wildly wrong about the price at which we thought our product would sell. And when all this realization came together, shit got real.

January 2015-April 2015

We were forced into a deathly spiral of pivots that almost killed the company. We made bigger mistakes. We left IoT as a sector. We lost a cofounder on the way. The pivots are a long story. I’ll save it for another day.

Now that you have some background, here are the top 5 mistakes we made in Lumos and what we learnt from them.


Mistake 1: We were neither experts nor target users of the product that we were building.

We had never used the existing home automation products in our homes. We were not experts in the IoT sector. When you have new at something, you give yourself the famous Dunning Kruger Pass on your decisions.

“The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than is accurate.”

And we did give ourselves the Dunning Kruger pass. Had we been users of existing smart switches, we would have known that the incremental value that our product was offering was quite low. Had we been experts in IoT, we would have known how to price hardware and the difficulties in building it.

By avoiding this mistake, you can avoid a lot of other mistakes which happen as a result of this one.

Learning: Work on something where you are either an expert or a top user. If not, become an expert/top user.

Homejoy founder Adora Cheung herself worked as a professional cleaner to understand the business.

Mistake 2: We did not do the due diligence on the idea before we started building the product.

We did not understand the market and competition well enough. We also did not figure out the persona of our customer. And whether that customer was looking for the value that we were providing.

We did not question whether we would be able to provide that value in that first place.(Machine Learning cannot read the human mind. Not yet!).

It is always possible to validate or disvalidate a lot of assumptions about the product, market and competition without building the full-fledged product.

One way we could have done it was by selling existing products to our potential customers.

Learning: I learnt this very useful method in an accelerator. Make a thorough list of hinge-breaking assumptions for your market, product and competition. Hinge breaking assumptions are those that can make or break your company.

Rank them according to probability of the assumption being wrong and subsequent risk to company. Start validating from the top while building as less as possible.

Mistake 3: We let sunk cost bias affect our decisions about pivoting.

It was not that we were clueless about the problems in our product. We had doubts in our minds. In a startup, you almost always have doubts. But we had built so much. We were in love with our product. And we were not ready to ask the difficult questions.

Is it okay to be doubtful about your product? Is it okay to voice your doubts and bring the team morale down?

Or make your cofounders feel that you are not as committed to the idea and the vision as they are?

It helps to be transparent about your doubts with co-founders in the long run.

It would have saved us a couple of months and some money.

Learning: It is absolutely necessary for founders to be committed to the vision of the company. However, there are multiple ways to achieve a vision. Don’t fall in love with one way. Accept the possibility that you might have to start things over from scratch.

Build a culture of transparency in your company. Encourage dissent among cofounders and deal with it objectively.

Mistake 4: We were trying to do everything for everybody.

We were making switches that could automate your lights, fans, ACs and water heaters. We would have tried to automate your TV, Fridge, Oven and Car as well had it been feasible to do so.

We were pitching power savings as well as luxury. This made the product and the pitch very complicated.

Learning: As a startup, you are constrained in resources. So it is always better to identify and solve one problem very well instead of solving n problems in a so-so way.

Nest solved the heating problem. Dropcam and Canary solved the security problem. Try to be a drug for your customer instead of being a vitamin.

Mistake 5: We underestimated hardware.

Building a successful startup is hard. Building a hardware startup is 10 times harder.

Pebble, with all its Kickstarter success, is still in troubled waters.

Building a prototype is the easiest part of building a hardware startup. The real challenge comes in product design, production engineering, manufacturing, distribution and marketing/sales. And you need to have friends in China.

Also, hardware product validation and iteration cycles are much longer than software ones. Getting funding is relatively difficult; VCs ask for traction(~$1M on Kickstarter/Indiegogo last I heard)because of the inherent risk in a hardware startup.

Managing cash flows is hard because you have to pay your vendors months before you get paid from your customers.

Source: The Lean Hardware Startup: Investing in Hardware Startups

Considering all this, we were not the right team to build a hardware company.

Learning: Understand what you are getting into if you are starting a hardware company and plan accordingly. Get experienced people on your team or get into a hardware accelerator like HAXLR8R.

Today.

Eventually, we ended up leaving hardware and IoT and decided to build something that solves a problem that we had experienced.

Since Gandhinagar(where Lumos was located) does not have many startups, interacting and sharing experiences with other entrepreneurs was always a big problem for us.

Also, we had to subscribe to a lot of blogs (crowded inbox) just to stay updated with top content on Entrepreneurship.

We decided to build FundaMine to solve this problem.

FundaMine is a community for professionals to stay updated and interact with others in their profession.

Currently, FundaMine has communities(mines) on Entrepreneurship, Product Management, Android Dev and IoT. Do check it out!

Is there any TV series better than Game of Thrones?

Original thread on quora

Answer by Ankit Singh Yadav:


At present, I won’t say these ( mentioned below) are better because genre is completely different but they are in the same league as of GoT-


1.The Americans –

Spy story set in cold war era.I’m hooked already.Put in excellent writing,superb acting, a clear conceptual vision and you got a great show. It does the near-impossible of making American viewers cheer for Russian spies in America  ( Can you believe that ).The series is created and produced by former CIA officer Joe Weisberg.Set during the Cold War period in the 1980s, The Americans is the story of Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys), two Soviet KGB officers posing as an American married couple living in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. with their unsuspecting children (Holly Taylor and Keidrich Sellati) and their neighbor, Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI counterintelligence agent. It just finished it’s second season and it’s the highest rated show of 2014.


2.Fargo –

It’s an American dark comedy-crime drama television series inspired by the 1996 film of the same name.Fargo has received broad acclaim from television critics. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes currently reports a 98% “certified fresh” critics rating. Fargo presents more quirky characters and a new storyline that is expertly executed with dark humor and odd twists.

3.True Detective –

True Detective is an American television crime drama series on HBO created and written by Nic Pizzolatto. It’s about two detectives, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson of Louisiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division hunting for a serial killer in Louisiana across seventeen years. Many top critics call it the best show of 2014. Matthew McConaughey is just too good.He is going to give Heisenberg a run for his money at Emmy’s this year ( already won ahead of  him at critics choice award this year ).It’s current IMDB rating 9.4.It’s anthology series.

Few other mentions-

4. House of Cards –
I would say the second season is way better than the first.It”s all politics,power and corruption.They add chinese angle to the second season too.And did i say Kevin Spacey was awesome.

5.American Horror Story –
It’s genre is horror and it’s an anthology series,with  each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries.It has three great seasons.

Potential to be Great –

1. Outlander -:
One of the most awaited show for past one year or so and for the book fans the wait of 23 years is over.It’s finally here. The pilot is too good and true to book. So Outlander is a World War II-era woman time-travels back to 18th-century Scotland. Sounds ridiculous? Well it should be but  it’s much much better than I’m making it sound.  Outlander has a woman at its center. That woman, Claire (Caitroina Balfe), is neither hapless nor incompetent. She has a job and we see her doing it(a nurse in world war 2 ). She has complicated thoughts about love, duty, and honor. She argues; she’s obstinate; she’s unruly. She’s passionate and sexual but not sexualized.
The scenery is delicious; the leading man is handsome, and his accent is legit.There are visceral action scenes; there are men being men and living the sort of simple life of honor.There are even witches and time travel and the music is damn good.Reviews have been great for first season not just for pilot. Whether it’s a  female version of Game of Thrones as some people are calling it  or not i will be coming back for more.It has all the ingredients of a hit .

2.Halt and Catch Fire – Just watch the first two episodes and i will be coming back for more.The series is set in the early 1980s ( 1983 ) and depicts a fictionalized insider’s view of the personal computer revolution. Reverse engineering an IBM chip and all that.
EDIT – It’s a dud.Don’t waste your time watching it.
3.Orange is the new Black – It’s based on Piper Kerman’s memoir,Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, about her experiences in prison.First season received universal acclaimed.

My All Time Top Five –

1. Band of Brothers

I always have keen interest in the WWII  and stories related to it.It took me 3 years to complete it because I don’t want it to be over ever but all good things has to end . It’s the highest rated item on IMDB, no other movie/series/mini-series has matched it yet. It has 9.6 rating.
Let me just quote some top reviews for it because i don’t think i can write better than them.
Caryn James of The New York Times called it “an extraordinary 10-part series that masters its greatest challenge: it balances the ideal of heroism with the violence and terror of battle, reflecting what is both civilized and savage about war.”
Robert Bianco of USA Today said the series was “significantly flawed and yet absolutely extraordinary — just like the men it portrays,”

New York Post ,Adam Buckman  — ” After watching the 10-hour Band of Brothers, I’m so drained by the intensity of what I have just beheld that I’m ready to declare this World War II miniseries the finest piece of work ever produced for television.”

Howard Rosenberg of Los Angeles Times ” — May be the best-ever film depiction of war in the trenches, large screen or small, and TV’s loftiest miniseries since the Brits sent over “The Jewel in the Crown” in 1984. Give Band of Brothers a medal.”

Robert W. Butle of Kansas City Star — “Over nine weeks and 10 hours, this extraordinary television event looks for humanity in the midst of carnage and despair. Time and time again, Band of Brothers finds it.”

2.Breaking Bad –

Have been watching it when first episode aired in USA and over the course of six years became so attached to it that when it ended last year it left a hole which is near impossible to fill. Any list of greatest show of all time without Breaking Bad is incomplete. In 2014, Breaking Bad entered the Guinness Book of Records as the highest rated show of all time.
All Hail the Great Heisenberg.

3.The Wire –

Well if it hasn’t been for season 5 it might be number one on the list.

4. The Sopranos –

This show made HBO what it is today.

5.Friends

The Shield

Mad Men

Deadwood

Person of Interest

Twin Peaks-

Can’t pick one.

I hope to see Game of Thrones on this list once it’s finished.


Is there any TV series better than Game of Thrones?

Why can’t we access the sites in the Deep Web (Onion/Tor) without a specially built browser?

Answer by Franck Dernoncourt:

We can. E.g. for Chrome follow the instructions: How do you configure Google Chrome to use TOR?

1. Download Vidalia from
Download Tor
2. Install Vidalia – a TOR client with GUI.
3. Wait until Vidalia tells you that Tor is working.
4. Start Google Chrome.
5. Using the Tools menus (it looks like a wrench), choose options, “Under the hood”. Scroll down to “Network” and click the “Change Proxy Setting” button.
6. Under the “Connections” tab, choose “LAN Setting” – Select Use Proxy server and enter “Localhost” and port 8118.
7. Save your work and return to the Chrome web browser. Check that you are using TOR by going to
Are you using Tor?
A Green message will indicate that TOR is operating correctly. A Red message will indicate that TOR is not set up correctly.
8. Continue to surf using TOR

On Firefox there used to be a nice extension for this, but it has been stopped due to Firefox:
Tor Project: Torbutton :

Torbutton is the component in Tor Browser Bundle that takes care of application-level security and privacy concerns in Firefox. To keep you safe, Torbutton disables many types of active content.

Now that the Tor Browser Bundle includes a patched version of Firefox, and because we don’t have enough developer resources to keep up with the accelerated Firefox release schedule, the toggle model of Torbutton is no longer supported.

Regarding Freenet, you can also choose any browser you want.

Lastly, you confuse Deep Web with Tor/Onion. Check out Deep Web.

Why can’t we access the sites in the Deep Web (Onion/Tor) without a specially built browser?

 

I also found following from REDDIT thread here:

Background – The so called “Deep Web” is the name of the part of the internet that is not indexed by search engines. It is made to be browsed anonymously and therefore you can only access it by a specific method (see below). It uses mainly .onion URL extension and random combinations of letters and numbers for the domain name.

Content – The deep web contains almost everything, if you have the time to look for it. Content on the deep web can be generated per query, and therefore the amount of content it actually has might be greater than you might expect. However, when you combine a completely anonymous way of access and the internet, you obviously end up with a lot of child porn, illegal drug trade, hiring of trained killers, etc. But, if you ignore that stuff, you can find a lot of interesting topics here, and it is also a good way to get a status update on the armpit of society. The main access route to the deep web is known as “The Hidden Wiki.” It contains most of the .onion links that you will need to go skinny dipping in the shark tank known as the internet.

Access – Accessing the deep web is entirely up to you. I went on for the first time today, and so far have not had my identity stolen, and no police have shown up at my door. Maybe I am just lucky, maybe this is how it always is. I do, however, HIGHLY recommend you check this place out. It is very interesting, and you get to venture in to a brave new world full of things that will both shock and intrigue you.

With that said, here is all you need to access the deep web:

Tor Browser: https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en (download the Tor Browser Bundle)

The Hidden Wiki: http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion/wiki/index.php/Main_Page (once you have Tor up and running, enter this link in to the browser and prepare yourself)

Enjoy yourself, and remember: STAY SAFE! I cannot stress that enough. I do not know how dangerous this place is, but I do know that bad people lurk around there. Just try not to get too involved with whatever “community” you may find, and you should be fine.

EDIT 1: For information, visit the Wikipedia article.

EDIT 2: This is a picture of “The Hidden Wiki”

EDIT 3: The Hidden Wiki is currently DOWN.

 

This article is combined from a quora answer and reddit post. See them here and here.

Why is Narendra Modi failing as a PM?

Answer by Praseed Sahu:

A hypothetical scenario: Narendra bhai is the teacher of a child whose name is India and Xi Xinping is the teacher of a child named China. Once Xi come’s to Modi’s house for snacks. He sees India studying hard from a maths book. Interested Xi calls India to him and asks,” What are you studying? The kid quickly replies, “Multiplication of two single digit  numbers.”
“That’s interesting”, replied Xi. “For how long have you been studying it?” Xi quizzed further. “Ummmm, for around 68 years” replied the kid.
“Cool, then you must be knowing a lot about multiplication, right??”
“Yes…..”, came a nervous reply from the boy.
“OK, then tell me what 5*5 is?”
“34”, came the reply.
After hearing the reply Narendra goes and pats on his back and gifts him a chocolate.
Seeing this Xi gets confused and asks Narendra,” Hey, that kid just gave a wrong answer and you are appreciating him.”
Narendra calmly replied “A year ago before I started teaching him he was replying 473, now he has arrived at 34, see? he is getting closer, in a few years he will give the correct answer”.

That is exactly what our PM Shri Narendra Damodardas Modi is doing. Can you imagine the deep shit the country was in before he assumed the position he is in? He is a master strategist and a shrewd politician. These two skills are what is desperately required in the leader of our country. Lets see what he has done so far.

1. One ring to rule them all. He is the supreme leader. He has done justice to the words Prime Minister. See that word Prime? No other leader in the country has commanded the reigns of general administration in our country like this man. The big four, Home, Finance, Defense,  and Foreign Affairs directly report to him. Without his approval not a bird can land in the premises of central secretariat. The secretaries of the various ministries instead of reporting to their respective ministers report to him more often. The way he has trained the bureaucracy to take decisions is really praiseworthy. During crisis like Yemen insurgency and Nepal earthquakes the officers took lightning fast decision to handle the crisis. In short he has given hope to the people of this nation that their elected leader can be trusted.

2. His team is like the Avengers type. The worst partnership that India had was of Manmohan Singh as PM and Pratibha Patil as President. A toothless PM with a woman who had no respect for the post. The Executive branch of the Indian Government was in shambles. But NaMo’s team consists of Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, Manohar Parikar, Suresh Prabhu, Rajnath Singh. Each of them are stalwarts in their respective fields and have a distinct flavor of their own. It’s like the Avengers with NaMo as Captain America. he is the first leader who has shunned nepotism and appointed worthy people to lead various ministries.

3. Image of the country in the world.

This is what he unveiled in Germany when he was there for bilateral meetings. He has visited nearly 18 foreign trips. He has become the brand ambassador of our country. Who better to be this than the PM?
Wherever he goes he advertises the potential of our country in terms of demographic dividend, resources we have, the friendliness of the government, opportunities for all etc. His visits to the countries have promised around 100 billion dollars investment.

4. He has engaged the Indian diaspora in the world and promised them that he will make a India of their dreams.


This is what Madison Square looked like when he was giving a speech. The type of confidence he is installing in them is what is required after 10 years of shit rule. On his suggestion UN adopted the International Yoga Day quickly after the proposal was moved.

5. The out of box schemes he has planned for the people of this nation

  • Make In India: Will create crores of jobs, increase exports, boost our  manufacturing sector, defense industry will be biggest beneficiary of it

6. The free hand he has provided to the army to maintain our sovereignty

‘We don’t think twice before pulling the trigger… We know Delhi is with us’: BSF commander

Concluding I would like to say that all these ideas need time to show results. That old guy hardly sleeps for 3 hours and is constantly working hard so that he can build an India of which Indian’s have dreamt for long. Saying that he has failed as a PM is utmost disgrace to the most honest and hardworking leader our country has ever seen. As I write this answer on Quora I remenber something he said at Madisson Square garden

“PEOPLE ASK WHAT IS YOUR VISION, WHAT IS YOUR BIG VISION? I SAY BHAI, I GOT HERE BY WAY OF SELLING TEA (CROWD ERUPTS IN APPLAUSE). I AM A SIMPLE (CHHOTA) MAN. I LIKE FOCUSING ON SIMPLE AND SMALL TASKS. I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH BIG THINGS FOR THE LITTLE GUY.”



KEEP CALM AND BELIEVE IN NaMo.

Why is Narendra Modi failing as a PM?
