    Less sunshine but no glimpse of rain leave alone lightning and thunder. Some times air blowing and cooling atmosphere. Much needed rain not to see in the coast.

    Multiple disasters, natural calamities, decease, untold miseries ad waht not. Politicians, time to bow yor heads and respect humanity and human dignity. Enough imposing rles on other communities by force and snatching right of ones vhoice of food. First respect and have fear of God. No power is permenent. Ruling the countryis different than using force on people with mussle power.BJP is not the iltimate force to guide India. India has risen from scrtach from British rule and BJP was not in sign to lead freedom strugle. They are born only to criticize all good actions of previous governmet and within 7 years they proved theier worth .

    Bhakth ,You made a mistake, anti national mistake. You said ""our army", should say "Modi's army"" Didn't you go to the last meeting in Shaaka? I wonder whether others should believe Fekuji or Army regarding Chinese army's incursion.
