Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation, always observed fast on his birthdays with a purpose of self-purification. The present Prime Minister Narendra Modi observed his birth day at the borders and in solidarity with the Kashmir flood victims. Naveen Patnaik didn't observe his birthday because of Hudhud cyclone. Last year also he didn't observe his birthday due to Phailin cyclone.
Finally the Goonman (I hate to call this criminal as godman) Rampal had been arrested by the Haryana police. During his arrest, he did not appear like a patient who can't even move. He was walking perfectly. It shows that his spokespersons were spreading lies. This conman had in fact waged a war against the state. He also stocked acid and petrol for making bombs and many were also hurled on the police.
Every year November 14th marks India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru's birth anniversary. 2014 is 125th birth anniversary year of Pt. Nehru. Many people would have differences on the Nehruvian policy, but he was considered as one of the greatest statesman of India.
