Mr. P.M. and Farmer Protest

Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh is burning,  six farmers dead in police firing, several injured in rampant violance.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan, a self-declared son of a farmer, is doing nothing in favor of protestors. And  ” Pradhan Sevak ” of country Shri Narendra Modi pretending that he is unaware of the incident and enjoying the foreign trip in the name of multilateral and bilateral engagements.

Whenever an attack or any natural disaster occurs on foreign land, Pradhan Sevak responds immediately and tweet but I am confused what happened to Pradhan Shavak when it comes to country’s internal matter.what is the meaning of his silence on critical issues whether it is Saharanpur violence, Gujarat violence, Beef ban or now M.P. violence.

Pradhan Sevak has been on foreign Trip since 2014 in the name of multilateral and bilateral engagements, but things are same, nothing has changed. The main idea he is missing is that change starts from home, not from foreign land.

“Food police”:- BJP lawmaker want ban on Momo

BJP lawmaker MLC Ramesh Arora has started a new war on momo- one of the most loves street food in North Indian cities.

the politician called the dumplings both addictive and dangerous and believe they should be banned immediately. “”Our teenager are getting addicted to the MOMO like drugs. which is dangerous to their health. we have to stop it” said Ramesh Arora.

According to a report by the National Herald, there seem to be undertones of xenophobia in Arora’s rhetoric as, he is conscious of the fact that “foreigners including Bangladeshi and Burmese” are usually the ones involved in the Momo business.

Arora even organized a seminar on the subject in Jammu which was attended by senior members of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association, doctors and academics besides officials from the municipal corporation, Drug and Food Control Department and the district administration.

After the beef ban, the ruling party is now playing with Momo. The reasoning behind beef ban was sentiment of people carrying Hindutva, and it was acceptable also but whatever reasoning behind ban of Momo given by Mr. Arora was baseless as ” Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that regulates and supervises food and drugs in the United States claims on its website (www.fda.gov) that the controversial Ajinomoto— trade name for the company’s original monosodium glutamate (MSG) product—is “generally recognised as safe”.

 

 

 

Madhya Pradesh Farmer Protest:- Why Mandsaur is angry, Here is five reason……..

Madhya Pradesh farmer protest turned ugly on Tuesday when six farmers were killed and five farmers injured in two different locations incidents. The protest started on  June 1, 2017, in which farmers are asking for a wide range of demands but five demands are major as follow….

60048-fwrkamwlay-1496803596

  1.  In 2016, India received 3% less rainfall than average rainfall after the two-year drought. According to govt.  food production increased in 2016, but despite that farmers fell to get more profit and now they are demanding higher crop prices to cover their input.
  2. the rainfall came after two-year massive drought, so farmer’ second demand is to provide a compensatory package.
  3. apart from this, the farmers are also demanding that they should be given 50 per liter of milk bought from them as they spend 37 per liter on production cost.
  4.  Government decision of demonetization gave a serious jolt to these farmers as most of the business related to agriculture made through cash payment.  Now, farmers demanding that theirs half of due’s in mandi’s should be given in cash and the remaining in bank account via electronic transfer.
  5. another demand is to book the policeman who shot the farmer in mandsaur.

Blackberry KeyOne:- 5 Best thing even other can’t afford

This phone you may be considered as a comeback of blackberry in mobile phone market after struggling many years. This time blackberry comes with new stunning design, slim body and most importantly with ANDROID version. Some are very impressive features it is carrying.

So while I simply need to spend more time testing the phone before I know how well the KeyOne has lived up to its promise, I will share what I like so far, and what hasn’t connected. Check back for my final assessment of a production device, ratings and all.

SCREEN AND SPACES

Smaller than Iphone-7 plus and larger than Google pixel, KeyOne is carrying 4.5 inches screen space with signature style Keypad, having about 60% screen to body ratio. The weight of the device is about 180gram which is pretty much, most of the devices coming within the range of 130-150 gram.

if you don’t mind the small screen, and weight then this is a better to buy it now.

KEYBOARD

If you are keypad lover or you feel comfortable with a keyboard then this is your chance to buy it right away because no other phone is with a keyboard, most importantly this is a capacitive touch keyboard so you can swipe either left or right. And you can map a long or short press of any key to launch an app or shortcut — up to 52 of them in total (good luck remembering them all). The phone will even suggest apps or contacts pair too, such as “I” for “Instagram,” “Y” for “Yelp” and “M” for “Mom.”

ON SCREEN TABS

Yes, this time blackberry took one step ahead to counter HTC or Samsung’s edge phone, now you can open multi tabs on the same screen at a time, or you can place tabs on the side wall of the screen.There’s also a Settings menu you can access to customize the tab’s size, placement, and transparency.

CAMERA

It has 12 MP primary camera with dual LED flash, In other feature, the camera has manual mode as well as automatic mode. If you are videography lover or photography lover then you can also take panorama mode and HDR mode.

An 8-megapixel front-facing camera takes straightforward selfies. You can apply the usual filters.

BLACKBERRY SOFTWARE

BlackBerry fans will be glad to see BlackBerry Hub, which is a universal message inbox and BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), as well as the Dtek app for peering into your phone’s security protocols. The KeyOne will work with the BES server. In addition to everyday buyers, the folks behind the BlackBerry brand are also reaching out to businesses and government agencies to support the phone.
