Quote of the Day

Without moral and intellectual independence, there is no anchor for national independence.
Our country's national crime is lynching. It is not the creature of an hour, the sudden outburst of uncontrolled fury, or the unspeakable brutality of an insane mob.

If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant.

Our flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather, the flag is a symbol of our national unity.
That is who Barack Obama is - a person of admirable character - and that is who he has remained for me over these last four years.

I am a sports enthusiast, and if given an opportunity, I want to be a sportsman, even today. I want to promote the sport that is indigenous to India. Kabaddi is a matter of national pride. Why can't cricket, hockey, football and kabaddi be given equal platforms and co-exist? I believe that can happen.
I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid.
