Presidential Elections: Support Dr.Meira Kumar
Bihar and Jharkhand governments have no choice but to support Dr.Meira Kumar. As defeat of "Bihar ki Beti" will invariably bring Shame to the Biharis and Jharkhandis (or erstwhile unified Bihar). Do you think that, people of Bihar will leave Nitish Kumar Scott - free, if Dr.Meira Kumar loses ? So, Nitish Kumar has very little option left but to support, Dr.Meira Kumar.
Moreover, if Nitish Kumar wants to fall in the BJP's well calculated electoral TRAP no one can save him in the next election.
Also, I am surprised to see Mr.Navin Pattanayak, so easily chewing the RSS bait. Orissa is a state, where there is large chunk of Tribal Christian voters loyal to the BJD (Biju Janata Dal). I am still to fathom, BJD's sudden electoral gamble of siding with the RSS and the BJP; when Mr.Pattanayak has been maintaining distance from them since some time.
Besides, the election of Dr.Meira Kumar, who is educated, experienced and very sober, might also correct some of the historical mistakes of not making her father, the Prime Minister of India.
Also, I don't think all the Muslim and Christian MPs and MLAs from the TDP and TRS will ever support a RSS backed Candidate, who acted against Dalit Christian and Muslin reservations. Therefore, invariably cross voting will take place, which might give the underdog, Ms.Kumar, a win. Support Dr.Meira Kumar, give a conscience vote and make her the 2nd Female President of India.
All the best to Dr.Meira Kumar.....👍✌

Gold prices rebound; jewellers stocking up for festivals
Thu Oct 3, 2013: Gold futures rebounded on Thursday from their lowest level in two weeks, tracking gains in overseas prices, though a strong rupee limited the upside.
* Despite the price rise, demand improved slightly as jewellers were seen placing orders for the peak festive season.
* At 2:57 p.m., the benchmark October gold contract the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) was 1.21 percent higher at 29,886 rupees per 10 grams. It hit a low of 29,352 rupees on Tuesday, a level last seen on September 18.
* "Some jewellers are placing orders as they have very thin inventory. They want supplies for Dussehra and Diwali," said a dealer with a private importing bank in Mumbai.
* India will celebrate the Hindu festivals of Dussehra in the third week of October and Diwali in the first week of November, a period when buying gold is considered auspicious.
* Some banks, which are primary dealers of bullion, re-started imports after the customs department gave its approval to some lots.
* Imports had virtually stopped after the so-called 80/20 principle, which tied exports with domestic consumption, creating confusion among government officials, and prompting the commerce ministry to call a meeting to break the deadlock.
* Overseas, gold held onto sharp overnight gains in Asian trading on Thursday as weak U.S. economic data and a partial government shutdown raised hopes that the Federal Reserve would stick to its bullion-friendly stimulus for longer.
* The rupee rose 1 percent on Thursday. A strong rupee makes gold imports cheaper.
* Indian markets were closed on Wednesday for a national holiday.
