Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Incredible India ?

No doubt , that is how India must appear to our foreign visitors , when they open any Indian Newspaper , upon landing

May be they just cannot make out why Indians ( mostly MPs and MLAs ), waste such a lot of time and energy , discussing / debating :

*   Educational qualifications of Ministers ( including PM )

*   Entry of women into temples of Lady Saints / Deities

*   What people of different religions may ( or may not ) eat

*   Nationality / Patriotism of certain Political leaders

*   By what amount they should raise their own salaries

*   Whom - and when - to provide ( or withdraw ) Z security protection

*   Why certain leading Industrialist accompany PM on foreign tours

*   Why everyone MUST sing some patriotic song to prove patriotism

*   Why " YOGA " is ( or is not ) , a religious ritual / practice

*   Why religious teachers should keep away from societal issues

And then these Foreign Tourists get amazed when they discover that , these MPs and MLAs ( and sundry politicians who failed to make it to the Parliament ) , find no time to go out / visit 350 million Drought-affected citizens in 13 states and help dig wells / ponds to preserve water and prevent farmer suicides ( approx 60 per day )

I wonder if the person who coined the slogan " Incredible India " to attract Foreign Visitors , ever envisaged this " Impact India " !

Don't be surprised if a MP sends to Lok Sabha speaker , following starred question in ZERO hour :

 Will Hon Minister for Tourism explain what steps he has taken to promote India , as the ultimate destination for " Tamasha Tourism "  ?
