ദിലീപ് കുറ്റവാളിയാണോ അല്ലയോ എന്ന് നിശ്ച്ചയിക്കാൻ , കേസ് കോടതിയിൽ വരണ്ടേ ? അത് വരാതെ കൈക്കൂലി കൊടുത്ത് ഒതുക്കിയിട്ട്, എടോ പിഷാരടി, താൻ ഇയാളെ കുറ്റ വിമുക്തൻ ആക്കയാണോ . സ്ത്രീ പീഡകരായ രാഷ്ട്രീയക്കാരേയും സിനിമാക്കാരെയും പൊക്കി കൊണ്ട് നടക്കുന്ന നീയൊക്കെ ഒരു സ്ത്രീയുടെ വയറ്റിൽ പിറന്നല്ലോ എന്ന് ഓർക്കുമ്പോൾ  ഈ 'അമ്മ' ദിനത്തിൽ ലജ്ജ തോന്നുന്നു.

Leon Panetta, who was White House chief of staff for Bill Clinton, told CNN that presidents typically pick and choose executive privilege battles with Congress.
But Trump, consistent with his indifference to checks and balances, domineering personality and willingness to shatter governing norms, chose a blanket approach and is resisting congressional oversight across the board.
"Our forefathers must be turning in their graves," Panetta told CNN's Brianna Keilar. "Our forefathers were really clear that they didn't want power to be centralized in any one branch of government, particularly in a king or a president."
Many analysts believe that at the end of the potentially lengthy legal battle on multiple fronts, the courts will eventually side with Congress on its power to compel testimony.

GREAT ARTICLE.

Forgive Tom for he doesn't know what he is talking about 

Trade hurt economic growth  
The formula for calculating the size of the American economy, the gross domestic product, is deceptively simple. It combines a number of economic metrics, including consumer spending, business investment and government spending. And it also factors in the difference between the value of what the United States exports and what it imports.

For more than 40 years, that difference has been negative as America bought more foreign goods and services than it sold. Imports exceeded exports, which means, technically speaking, that America’s gross domestic product was lower because of trade.

Who initiated and led the criminal investigation into the Trump campaign? James Comey. Christopher Wray. Rod Rosenstein. Robert Mueller. They are all Republicans. This is not a Witch-Hunt. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW (not even the so-called President

ഒന്നും കാണാതെ ശ്രീനിയേട്ടൻ കുളത്തിൽ ചാടില്ലല്ലോ. നല്ലൊരു കലാകാരൻ ആണ് പക്ഷെ  പിസി ജോർജ് സിൻഡ്രോം എന്നൊരു മാരക രോഗത്തിന് അടിമയാണെന്നു മാത്രം. മോഡേൺ മെഡിസിനെ  ഇത്രയേറെ അപകീർത്തിപ്പെടുത്തുന്ന പ്രസ്താവനകൾ നടത്തിയ ഒരു കലാകാരൻ മലയാളത്തിലില്ല. എന്നിട്ടോ ഒരു നെഞ്ച് വേദന വന്നപ്പോൾ ഒരു പ്രകൃതി ചികിത്സ കാരൻറെ അടുത്തും പോകാതെ എറണാകുളത്തെ ഏറ്റവും നല്ല ആശുപത്രിയിൽ പോയി വേണ്ട കാര്യങ്ങൾ ഒക്കെ ചെയ്തു.

Thank you Girish Ji

Tagore is a Poet i admired from my Childhood.. I thought i do a poetic trial as a tribute on his Birthday (May 7) 
I used to gift his Geethanjali to my friend's children who visited me and tell them with this humble pride that he is our Nobel Laureate. 
I have never ventured in Translation Except one Article about  Sardar  Patel and when i decided to do a poem i thought it should be of Tagore.. He is one of the poets i wanted to walk back to the past and meet.. 

Thank you Girishji once again for your kind words...

Excellent attempt. Congrats Mrs.Reema.
The Ganges: holy river from hell 2019-05-08 09:23:03 News

What is dumped in the river Ganges? Raw sewage, plastic bags and bottles, industrial effluents, human waste, chemicals from tanneries, discarded idols, cow dung, partially cremated corpses, garlands of flowers, human remains, animal carcasses, butcher’s offal, chemical dyes from sari factories and construction waste.

It only takes a few hours of being in the ancient holy city of Varanasi – the most sacred place in the world for Hindus – to realise that the question needs to be reworded as “what is not dumped in the Ganges?” 

On an overcast, but oppressively humid, August day, India’s holiest river is the colour of pewter and swollen from the monsoon rains, which have raised the water level to cover some of the famous ghats – the long stretch of steps leading down to the river.

At Assi Ghat, named after the river Assi, which flows into the Ganges near this spot, a herd of buffalo has been brought by their owner to cool off in the river. Submerged up to their backs, they stand, still as statues, in the same water that locals and pilgrims will bathe in.

The Assi river has been reduced to this,” says Virender Nishad, a seventh generation boatman, pointing to a three-metre wide drain, full of sludge, plastic and litter. “If nothing changes, the Ganges will become like this too in 20 or 30 years. If we go on polluting it, the river will be ruined and so will we.”

Nishad represents that curious paradox found all over India – everyone knows what the problem is and how it should be fixed but somehow it never is. The will to act is missing, in ordinary people, in the government.

Nishad has grown up on the ghats. Now 30, he has seen the river he regards as a living deity become indescribably dirty. “When I was a boy, I used to drink the water. It used to be much cleaner and fast-flowing,” he says.

But his memories have probably been sanitised by time because it was almost 30 years ago that the Indian government launched its first huge clean-up project so the river cannot have been as clean as Nishad remembers.

ver the decades, numerous campaigns to clean the Ganges have come and gone. Billions of dollars have been thrown into the river. Good intentions have been felled by corruption and mismanagement. The pollution and its causes have been dissected ad nauseam. Yet it is filthier than ever.

The Ganges flows for 2500 kilometres from the Himalayas through four states where 400 million Indians live through to the east coast where it empties into the Bay of Bengal. As it passes through 100 towns and cities, it absorbs all their human and industrial waste.

Experts estimate that more than 3000 million litres of untreated sewage from these towns along the Ganges are pumped into the river every day. By the time it reaches Varanasi, whose untreated sewage (or most of it) is also pumped into the waters, it becomes a sewer and the sixth most polluted river in the world.

Dr Vishwambhar Nath Mishra, a university professor whose family has been temple priests here for 13 generations, says that 33 sites in the city continually discharge raw sewage into the river.
