The first Khan breathes his last

Dilip Kumar , the name needs no introduction. Be it as a smuggler in "Duniya" and Mashal or as a dacoit,a rustic character in "Ganga Jamuna",a prince with a doomed loved story in "Mughal- E- Azam" or a man who takes up the path of self destruction as he hits the bottle past a heart break in Devdas, or as a freedom fighter in Kranthi, the legendary actor brought every character of life on the big screen like never before.

Power politics

Reshuffling of cabinet ministers ahead of elections can be justified citing performance of respective ministers but there is no logic to reallocate constitutional posts of governor (Probables arrive in Delhi amid Cabinet reshuffle , July 7).

Further, it is well known that increasing number of ministers from 53 to 81 is just to accommodate MPs with the aim of gaining politically in poll bound states. Same is against Modi government's principle of "minimum government and maximum governance" , which is very much relevant in this pandemic that ruined the financial position of many people as also governments.
