    It is unfortunate that we are loosing common sense while war mongers on both sides of the border are having field day. Someone should show leadership and deescalate the situation. War rhetoric should not be used as an instrument for political gains and pority. Nor should religion be used for this ( period).

      Surgical strike won't happen every day and Modi would be judged by concrete results rather than well-bed schemes or initiatives across multiple fronts. Let us accept that the PoK attack is the sole good thing of the Modi govt that will have a result -- revenge attacks, war, or fewer infiltration across the JandK border - if we are fortunate. The PM was desperate to conduct the army operation as it was the perfect move to cover the failures of the government. As the saying goes, a war or similar act is the last resort of the incompetent. Modi has risked a war because of his folly and arrogance. Even Atalji endangered the country like Modi and made the world jittery about the prospects of a nuclear war. As our Hindu ego is swelled up by the new dispensation in Delhi, we can't realise the dangers or the follies of our Delhi leaders. Carried away by empty rhetorics and hate-mongering all around, even by pressutes, we speak about surgical strikes or a likely war as if it would be a Indo-Pak cricket match in Sharjah or;br/gt;Unfortunately, there is no end to the depressing or negative stories in these last couple of years. We talk about war; also about contagious diseases all;br/gt;The debate will soon veer to whether Narendra Modi will leave a pathetic legacy or at least a mediocre one. (Let's be realistic). Now, after two-and-a-half years it is clear there are no good times when Modi is at the helm. We are good at blaming the previous governments and their leaders or even the AAptards. There is some truth in what our rivals have been telling. On the ground there are no results that match the high-pitched campaigns or schemes of high b value. Even a typical govt move or action is being termed a historic one. One more school or road or any increase in tax collection is being bandied about as unprecedented. That shows the pettiness and desperation of our;br/gt;Even months back, sickular kongressis were charging that economy is in doldrums. True, several economic indicators don't shed a positive light on the govt, despite a few initiatives that has high b value, at least. Latest employment survey is proof that initiatives like Make in India are a flop. Ignore the economy. The country is literally sick. Diseases all over. There is no end to depressing events as Modi rules. His rule has become a joke and he a bluffmaster. Modi can't do anything, except talk and travel. Modi flattered to deceive. Petty people for whom Indian history commenced in 2014 May, any petty act of the Modi govt gives goosebumps.
