Rashtrapati Bhavan New Delhi India

President House i.e Rashtrapati Bhavan (a sanskrit word) is the official residence of the President of India, located in New Delhi.

The main entrance is to Rashtrapati Bhavan is known as Gate 35, and is located on Prakash Vir Shastri Avenue, renamed from North Avenue in November of 2002. According to official website:

The splendour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan is multi-dimensional. It is a vast mansion and its architecture is breathtaking. More than these, it has a hallowed existence in the annals of democracy for being the residence of the President of the largest democracy in the world. Few official residential premises of the Head of theState in the world will match the Rashtrapati Bhavan in terms of its size, vastness and its magnificence.

The present day Rashtrapati Bhavan was the erstwhile residence of the British Viceroy. Its architect was Edwin Landseer Lutyens. The decision to build a residence in New Delhi for the British Viceroy was taken after it was decided in the Delhi Durbar of 1911 that the capital of India would be shifted from Calcutta to Delhi in the same year. It was constructed to affirm the permanence of British rule in India. This building gave the impression, in the words of a critique, the setting of a perpetual Durbar. The building and its surroundings were supposed to be ‘an empire in stone’, ‘exercising imperial sway’ and containing in it, “the abode of a disinterested elite whose rule was imposed from above”.

Babe theory of political agitation

Sunday TOI (April, 30, 2006) has a small article on babe theory. According to article “Where there are hot babes men will show up. If 100 cute girls are protesting you can count on a thousand men being there as well

But, then I thought it may be correct. After all why do some movements work while others fail? Just today morning I saw few medial college young women students protesting against reservation quota. Within 30 minutes, there were more men (students).

According to WillTheory may be shallow, but in the end Babe Theory describes whether a movement will be successful, not why the men are attracted to a movement ~ also if no babes show off for the cameras, the media attention of protests is scant, at best. It’s shallow but it’s reality.”

Toyota Predicts Best Cars Could Come From India

Considering hardworking, well-educated people of India, it is not a big surprise for me. At a speech in New Delhi, Hiroshi Okuda the chairman of the world’s #2 automaker said that while Japanese automakers had remained stagnant, Thai and Indian suppliers were winning major quality awards and mentioned the possibility that the two nations could one day make the best automobiles in the world.
