  1. Glad to see politicians from different parties coming together to celebrate Yoga day. However, the absence of certain minority groups is quite clear here. I’m still very optimistic. May be, some of them will change their minds in future and appreciate yoga.

    • Glad to see politicians from differnet parties coming together to celebrate Yoga day. – Origi Rampu

      Say Rampu, have you seen Nithina Gadkari struggle to climb out of his seat of his chauffeur driven Fortuner? He makes it look like a Herculean effort! (arnaba Goswami’s channel showed his task today!) Well, i didn’t see him participating in the Yoga program and he was supposed to be head of the unit in some place. Tsk Tsk.

      By the way, your Rama Madhava seems to have put his foot in his mouth and shot off some tweets about the Vice President’s so called ‘absence’ from the big event. The truth stands that he wasn’t even invited!

    • Original RSS and Duplicate Paimaam of USA and RSS Ram Madhav, secretary of BJP, both sail in the same boat!

      Ram Madhav knows that Vice President Ansari was not requested to participate in the Modi’s Yoga Road Shaw. Yet, he wants to cast aspersions on our vice president because he happens to be a Muslim. He thinks to be born a Muslim in India is a sin, and therefore they are traitors. Ram Madhav said Ansari did not participate in Yoga Road Shaw in spite of a request to participate and he did so to point out that he is a Muslim and Muslims are against Yoga.

      A press release from vice president’s office said that he was not requested to participate. Ram Madhav changed his stance and said that the vice president was ill and he did not participate due to illness and he shed crocodile tears for the “mistaken” accusation.

      The vice presidents office clarified that he was not ill at all! This is how RSS makes yoga the exclusive domain of Hindus and impresses Hindus that even our vice president is a religious begot!

      Do these RSS begot think that just because Modi wants Yoga to be celebrated to commemorate the death anniversary of RSS founder Keshav Baliram Hedgewar, and hoodwinks the UN to chose that day unknowingly, have we no fundamental right not to participate in the road show?

  2. Glad to see politicians from different parties coming together to celebrate yoga day.-Atheist Mr.Original

    Dear readers,

    For RSS school of thoughts it is first ‘Yoga’ and then slow poising starts.This what exactly done RSS IT wing who are long strained their back.While Modi government busy promoting ‘Yoga’ Indian culture as RSS brand,the dedicated IT swayamsevaks are busy in free advertising.

    From Parrikar’s silence to Prabhu’s sleep, here are some funny photos of our ministers doing yoga


    Indeed PM Modi should have lead his own minister of railways who went on sleep mode,while CM Fadnavis found seems like practicing for some Bollywood dance set.

    After successful Yoga day, perhaps Modi’s government will also take ‘Kamasutra’ to UN to observe “KS day” coincide with Valentine day or Golwalkar birthday. They might even ban contraceptives blaming Indian culture.

    Jai Hind
