BJP national president Rajnath Singh came to Amravati on Wednesday from New Delhi to attend the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) “Manthan Shibir”. Landing at Belora airport, the BJP chief drove straight to Vyankatesh Lawns, the venue for the annual national camp of RSS and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), where he is supposed to take part in the day-long “closed-door” deliberations.
BJP state president Devendra Fadnavis is likely to reach the venue by Wednesday evening, sources said. The week-long national “Manthan Shibir” began here on Tuesday and is tipped to see deliberations over the Sangh’s strategies and policies for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.
Meanwhile, VHP’s international executive president, Pravin Togadia, while addressing reporters, expressed concern over the recent serial blasts in Bodh Gaya and said that the time had come to root out the “local links” of international terrorists.
He alleged that the
government had not acted to thwart the attack despite being alerted about the likelihood of the same by intelligence agencies.
“We were hitherto troubled by Pak-sponsored terrorism, but now India seems to have become a target for terrorist groups in countries like Afghanistan, Myanmar and Algeria too,” Mr Togadia alleged.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
