This is what happens when too much hype is given to Cricket, enthusiastic people even decided celebrations. Hype going overboard, simply overboard with expensive promotions, ad campaigns etc.
Nobody, had given one fourth of the coverage to the Men’s Hockey team playing against Pakistan and in London too. Congratulations to the Men’s Hockey team…Atleast, they have brought the glory to the country…They deserve a pat on their back..
To what extent this Saffron government will stoop, any limit left at all. Forget about the harassment this government has been causing to people on name of ‘demonetisation’, making ‘Aadhaar’ mandatory and forthcoming GST (to fulfill whims of Prime Minister) but it seems have also forgotten the basic of morals and ethics. Saffron brigade has totally forgotten that ethics’ or ‘morals’ is not just running after Lord Rama and Janam Bhoomi or chanting ‘mantras and ‘shlokas’. The recent booklet published from Ayush Ministry is a nothing but a crap and also an insult to women. It says stay away from non veterinarian foods to have a healthy baby, that means those who are having baby after eating non veterinarian foods are not having having healthy baby.
The book has issued advisory to women to away from ‘lust’, sexual desire’ apart from anger, excitement etc. These words in itself reflects the filthy mindset…Condemn!
