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.....👍✌

Surging Nasdaq an Indicator of Strengthening ‘Technology Revolution’ Says Hays
26 November, 2013: After blasting above 4,000 at the start of trading Monday, the Nasdaq (^IXIC) had finally broken through a millennial milestone that had been looming over it for months. And yet, within minutes, the festivities were already being reigned in, thanks in part to the sudden and sharp reversal of the social media stocks like Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR), and Yelp (YELP), which have sharply trailed the Nasdaq for two weeks.
The outsized decline by the market’s momentum leader yesterday caused some to wonder if the much-anticipated meltdown was actually starting to happen. For veteran market watcher Don Hays, any dip or loss of momentum is troubling, but not a deal-breaker for a long-term bull.
“In the short-term, the market is a little tired, it needs a little rest,” the chairman and founder of Hays Advisory Group. “You can see it in some of these leading momentum stocks,” such as social media, he adds, before pointing out that this has been the case for the past three or four months.
But don’t be fooled. The Nasdaq’s “4-k moment” is no small event. In fact, by some measures, the tech-heavy benchmark is really “a better indicator,” Hays says, especially given the ongoing “technology revolution.”
In fact, if you wipe out your short-term fears and just focus on the big picture, this affable Tennessean says “the basic infrastructure of the bull market is still very much alive,” and will remain so until the Federal Reserve decides it is time to put an end to the party.
“So (the Fed) is a long way from tightening the screws on this bull market,” Hays says, noting that monetary policy and liquidity are at some their best levels in the past 50 years.
“The little word ‘bubble’ is being bandied around a lot. It’s very popular for some reason” Hays observes. “That is another good reason to believe that this is not a bubble. It’s more like part of a bull market, and the bubble is still out there in future-land somewhere.”
