jayyed | 5 years ago | Reply | Recommend Hate and jealousy is the order of the day for the emerging face of BJP's india- a mess the right wing india (with extremist right wing forces like VHS and RSS etc sharing power) is fast gathering for itself by heaps. Gauging by the big stories coming from india, the long-trumpeted secularism is having a fall there. Which is only good news for all the fed up neighbours of India. After all, the acid 'hate' is already beginning to burn the vessel that contains it! Oh wait a sec.. 1, 2, 3.. TROLLS GO..!! :)
