    Yes it is true no one should surrender their liberties in feet of single man. Need to think why bhakts are increasing day after day. What made them become bhakt for a single man . 80% of the country is full bhakts. That single man surrendered his life in the feet of maa bharathi.

    We call a man Father of our nation, and you have problems when people praise too much, a two time majority elected PM. I am not a Modi fan but be consistent, in your thoughts...

    पुरानी इतिहास के पन्ने पलटने से क्या उखाड़ लोगे कुत्ते। तू भौकता रह जनता अब तुझे लात मार कर देश से निकाल देगी।

    Ramchandra Guha has nicely described the difference between Bhakti to an individual leads to Fascist Hinduathav Government , Bhakti of an individual salvation of soul.

    Words of wisdom by Ambedkar good for ever. Means politics and religion do not mix. Religion is schizophrenic irrational addiction. More research needed to make religion tenable for society as diverse as India.

    There is a saying chor ke man me chandni. When ambedkar wad speaking in 1949, there was no bjp. Obviously he was talking about all political bhakti from gandhiji to jayalalita to modibhakti to indira gandhi. But here i am seeing people supporting a particular political party taking offence. It is akin to johny lever standing up to speak about the passing away of his mother and people start to laugh as soon as he utters a word. There is no need to agree with ramchandra guha but at listen to what he is saying before making a comment
