When it comes to the criticism of indigenous projects, we are very proactive, confident and repetitive. One can find enormous amount of literature criticising the projects undertaken by Indian PSUs or DRDO or other government agencies.

The recent controversy on the drama and film artists belonging to Pakistan has left the entertainment world split into two parts. People belonging to the bigger part are mostly of the opinion that Pakistani artists should be banned and the relatively smaller part put forth the argument that these artists should allow to continue their endeavors. The social and the political advocates are mostly on the former side and the latter part is sparingly inhabited by handful of so-called peace loving people or the cohorts. Continue reading
