    Trump should show no mercy to the anarchists behind this. This is almost same as the paper rebellion started by the jihadi-communist-liberal tribe against Modi when he won the electionsdian Express and NDTV were most vocal opponents of Trump and are now publishing all kinds of fake news to belittle the new US President.

    am and USA elections, and Brexit vote are reminders that 'the world is a global village now' is not a full reality yet. Lets be ready for similar results in Upcoming Mumbai and Germany elections too. It can not be a reality till all regions of the world experience equality of quality of life and dignity. Communities that have worked hard for generations or have created spaces through social and financial dominance, violently or peacefully, are bound to feel threatened with influx of new communities. The developed nations must accept that they can not treat other countries like cheap labor and market for their products without owning up the consequences. Knowledgable and skilled citizens of developing and poor countries must understand that they will not be welcomed in already developed comfort zones of developed nations, instead they should create comfort zones in their homelands. The responsibility is of both sides. And for that every nation must move away from concept of religion, caste, region and instead form communities based on all acceptable parameters. Obly a world of mutual respect, similar quality of life and equal opportunities will make it a global village. Otherwise the term will only remain as agenda of opportunistic individuals who dump their homelands and rich corporates that want to sell their products across the world!

    Let us not forget that a lot of shameless Indian men and women had promised that they would roam naked or leave India if Modi is elected but they did -t do so.
