Thus Spake



  • In this age of computer and internet, man’s excessive fascination for technology and the many illusions he builds around is giving him a false sense of security. The recent natural disasters have taught us however important science and technology may be, they will never be able to replace our basic humanity…Technology is a good servant, but a dangerous master.

__ Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

  • These days everywhere it is you who is being discussed. Be it TV or social media, India or abroad, everyone is talking about chowkidar…Calling a chowkidar chor is an insult to all chowkidars.

__ Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

  • I thought India was producing 450 jobs a day. Turns out Modi’s policies destroyed 1 crore jobs in 2018. That is 27,000 jobs lost every single day of 2018. India’ PM is a joke.

__ Rahul Gandhi, Congress President

  • Eight people (26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on entire nation(Pakistan). Naïve to assume that just because some people came here and attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way……I would like to know more as I have read in New York Times & other newspapers, what did we really attack, we really killed 300 people? As a citizen it is my duty to ask.

__ Sam Pitroda, President, Indian Overseas Congress and a close confidant of Rahul Gandhi

  • Opposition insults our forces time and again. I appeal to my fellow Indians – question opposition leaders on their statements. Tell them – 130 crore Indians will not forgive or forget the opposition for their antics. India stands firmly with our forces. Loyal courtier of Congress’ royal dynasty admits what the nation already knew –Congress was unwilling to respond to forces of terror. This is a New India – we will answer terrorists in a language they understand and with interest.

__ Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

  • Livelihood issue will determine outcome of election.

__ Sitaram Yecchuri, CPI(M) General Secretary

  • In short, every semi-automatics weapon used in the terrorist attack on Friday will be banned in this country.

__ Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand

  • The media is working overtime to blame me for the horrible attack in New Zealand.

__ Donald Trump, American President

  • A lot of AGP workers are aggrieved that the party has forged the pre-poll alliance with the BJP. They wanted to conduct the elections alone. So, if these workers do not lend their support, the result will not be good for the AGP.

__ Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, former chief minister of Assam and founder of Asom Gana Parishad

  • The Nation needs leaders who are not corrupt and do not pretend also.

__ T.P. Sreenivasan, Veteran diplomat and former Vice-Chairman of Kerala State Higher Education Council.

  • I have nothing against any political party or politicians, but in the light of certain news – 9 MLAs contesting to be MPs (in Kerala) – it should be pointed that crores of hard earned tax money of the citizens are spent for conducting elections.

__ Kochouseph Chittilappilly

  • No religion is safe in the hands of priests. The pattern of irrational dependence on priestly favours impairs your child’s will to endure………………..Consider this. Your child is about to set off for the annual exams. You are anxious that he may not do well.”Son” you say slipping a crisp currency note into his hands, “Put this into the box at the shrine”. From where did you get this idea? Certainly not from scriptures. It is your priest, and his hoary predecessors, who said God can be bribed.
