Fuel on fire... Indeed it is... Well explained!!
The frequent hike in excise duty by the centre and sales tax by state government s are said to be the main reasons for the high fuel prices in India.
Petro-products have been deliberately kept outside the ambit of the goods and services tax.
All in all the taxes are about 227% of the actual cost of petrol.

The petroleum pricing has nothing to do with business/trade parctices, cost of inputs and overheads or economics. It is the govt with a mojority running rufshod with citizens, albeit with the consent of a large section of the society which owns the govt ( of Hindu Rashtra ). There cannot be any other explanation to this madness; Modi-fied New India !

Extremely detailed and thought provoking. Modi seems to not notice the efforts by prev govts to reduce dependence on Crude oil imports by offering pulic transport options like Metro rails. The oppn seems to be dumbstruck at times. Also crude imports hv only risen yearly since 2014.

Very interesting to note that 25% is interest burden on its outstanding debt. Any individual or country under debt trap going to have bumpy ride and at times fatal crash.
Sad that Modi govt borrowed highest in 66 years since independence. Opposition is weak and most voters feel whatever Modi does is right due to their hardcore affiliation. Hope there will be some change and light at end of the tunnel.

As usual, well written article. I agree with Philip s assessment on GDP MSP and sorry social state of some Punjabi youths. All I fail to understand is that how does all this absolve the central government of the farmers understanding of the Laws and their fears.

Good article rich in content by Philip. There is communication break between policymakers and farmers. True, there are disoriented youth out there may be bit more compared to other regions. There are many arguments on freebees to farmers, actual sufferer is small farmer as Philip opined. On the other hand Panjabis are a major migrant chunk in Canada...often criticised for taking advantage of loopholes...

7. The new survey by Pew Research Center, conducted Jan. 8-12 among 5,360 U.S. adults, including 4,040 who say they voted in the presidential election, finds that a sizable majority of Americans do not want Trump to remain a major political figure after he leaves office. About two-thirds (68%) say Trump should not continue to be a major national political figure for many years to come; just 29% say he should remain a major figure in U.S. politics. Contrast this with Joe Biden s figures: 64% approved his more accommodating and bi-partisan approach to governance, as noted in his speeches, presidential behavior and choice of admin officials and cabinet.

6. It is important for any dominant leader to demonstrate empathy, humility and, most importantly, that his or her actions have been governed by the need of the hour—to help others rather than to promote his or her own cause. Global experiences have shown that people are willing to pardon the negative actions of even a dominant leader if she or he comes across as caring and empathetic, as the demonstrated attributes of a prestige based leader. Modi and Xi, despite harboring classic authoritarian traits, have done exactly that. In their messages to their people, they have shown compassion and sympathy and thus have seen a stable rise in popularity since the crisis began. Watch Modi s constant media events and Mann-ki-baath, aimed directly to people over everyone s heads. Check the recent MOTN of India Today-Karvy Opinion Polls in India. Trump failed to show empathy with the Americans facing the Corona Pandemic, blaming China rather than planning how to help his voters to deal with the virus.

Philip Mudartha, Nerul
30/01/2021 16:37:51

5. In response to setbacks, a go-to strategy for dominant leaders is to blame an external party for the current troubles so that the people can rally around a common enemy. This has been a successful plan for many such dominant leaders, including Modi, Putin and Trump. Trump very effectively used the strategy in the 2016 election when, as an outsider to politics, he blamed the current establishment (Washington Swamp, he derisively said) and immigrants (termites in Amit Shah tongue) to buffer his support among voters. Build a wall not a bridge was his appeal (contrast it with Pope Francis Call). I have lived in the US long enough to see what jobs the Mexicans are doing (which white Americans are unwilling, in any case).

4. Is Trump the best President Americans had? Poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight compares his job approval ratings with twelve of his predecessors (post WWII) belonging to both parties and he comes at the bottom (as an average).

Philip Mudartha, Nerul
30/01/2021 16:13:16

3. The same Gallup tracking Polls show his job approval ratings among non-partisan independents not higher than 41% and not lower than 30%, the lowest post capitol Siege. His numbers among Democrat Party voters were a high of 14% and low of 1%. This is why he is billed as a great divider and not a unifier.

Philip Mudartha, Nerul
30/01/2021 16:06:23

2. President Trump s hold on the Republican Party and citizens identified as Republicans is visible by the Gallap daily tracking approval ratings. High point 95% and low point 77%, with 82% approving his job performance by 82%. This explains why ranking Republican leaders are wary of dumping him in order that his base is not enraged against them.

Philip Mudartha, Nerul
30/01/2021 15:57:36

It is heartening to see our readers i9nterest in US politics. After all, it is the only surviving superpower. It is a beacon of democracy for other democratic nations to admire and try to emulate. It is a country governed not my men/women but by laws.
1. President Trump s Job approval ratings as per Gallup Daily Tracking Polls highest at 49% in 2020 (until 13th May) and lowest at 34% in 2021 Jan 4-15 week. The decline is obviously popular disapproval of his behavior after the election loss.

Philip follows a narrow lens and ends up representing the polarized “Black or White” Trump hating spectrum. Trump is not a Demon, nor is Biden an Angel. Trump is the best ‘American President for the Americans’ since Ronald Reagan despite all his well-documented deficiencies. Lobbies and media have hunted Trump with the sole agenda of wanting the Govt to work for their interests, not for Americans. Immigrants want open borders, Indians want unrestricted visas, Chinese wants US market global control, EU wants commanding presence at no cost, UN wants to push their irrational agenda, climate brigade wants to sell elite agenda, dictators want US forces, Islamists want to take over White House. Trump threatened to stop the train. With the connivance of Media and the deep state, there was not a chance in hell Trump could win 2nd time while the rigging and manipulation was set in motion. As for Trump and Kamala, despite the abysmal past record the tide has floated them to the White House. Move on folks, nothing to see here! The duo is well on track to deliver a confused, weaker, media controlled and manipulative America which will neither serve Americans nor the rest of the world.

these states by 3, 34,260 votes, thus registering their rejection of his policies and performance as the President. b) He lost Arizona and Georgia (traditional Re States controlled by Republican State Governors) by a slender margin of 22,236 votes. If he had secured these numbers of votes and 20,608 votes in Wisconsin, he would have won and not Biden. Which means that he needed 42,844 more votes in these three states to win his second term? It is very close win for Biden. A win, nonetheless, in accordance with the legitimate electoral process. Why did these red states reject his policies? c)His loss is akin to the loss for Hilary Clinton in 2016. But his behavior after the election results does not behove the high of the President of the USA

Philip Mudartha, Nerul

Post Script:
1. Trump left White House, a few hours before his successor was to be sworn in, breaking the tradition of attending the oath-taking ceremony.
2. For a week since this article was penned, he remained reclusive but non-repentant for inciting the insurrection by his core base, whom he had asked to “fight like hell, if you don’t fight like hell you will not have otherwise you are not going to have a country anymore….Walk down the Pennsylvania Avenue..to the capitol”.
3. He spent his last day in office signing presidential pardons, a tradition which he followed to the T.
4. Among foreign policy initiatives during the week, he rattled the Communist People’s Republic of China by condemning the ethnic cleansing of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province as well making official contacts with the Democratic Republic of China (Taiwan).
5. He promised that he will be back in some form.
6. Trump could reflect on this while playing golf in his resort: a) In 2016, if did not win Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by a total of 77, 744 votes, Hilary Clinton would have been the President and not him. His 306 Electoral Votes came from this narrow margin. In 2020, he lost ..(contd)

It’s a big shame to US and truly looked like banana republic. USA is called super power and very advance in security system and they are best , but what happened it’s big shame to the nation and each senator of republicans. Mr. Trump should have been respected the mandate of American people and shouldn’t act this way. As said above some good things he has done and some bold decisions but all went in vain. At the end , in history the last end will be remembered. For me his mind Bussiness mind and don’t have political mind .

Glorification of violence policy of Donald Trump that could inspire others to replicate violent acts that took place at U. S. Capitol on January 6.
This may also serve as encouragement to those potentially considering violent acts.
Whether Mr.Trump is convicted removed by the Senate even after he leaves could have ramifications for him politically financially for sure.
Thank you dear Philip for your fantastic

Ronald Sabi
Any idea who conducted the opinion survey that you are referring to? The last time I heard, President Trump received more than 74 million votes which is more votes than any incumbent president. To give credit where it is due and to site just a few examples, President Trump did not start any new wars. He destroyed Isis which was created during Obama/Biden administration and was wreaking havoc in the middle East when President Trump took over. Putin just walked into Crimea and took over that region of Ukraine and Barak Obama could do nothing. Would Putin have dared to do the same if President trump was in the office? Was it not a bold and calculated strike to eliminate Sulaimani which potentially avoided a second Benghazi style attack on American Embassy in Baghdad? These are just a few examples among many why the Republican base is solidly behind President Trump

The events happened during his last two months are definitely defame the legacy of the great american institutions.In my opinion he should leave now and come back with double portion in 2024.But unfortunately he is not showing that wisdom and maturity. At the same time Mr Trump is the best president of USA.In his tenure he solved lots of domestic as well as international issues without a war and send hundreds of thousand to refugees camp.He beautifully solved the rivalry between the brothers which was considered as a Himalayan task to others.He protect the collaps of world market due to covid by allowing the business to function without a lockdown(otherwise the story would have been something else in which chinese communist lead the world with their arrogant policies).For this bold decision he paid a very big value ie is his second term in White House.He solved Hezbollah,ISIS threat thus redrawn the international diplomacy.These all are past...now he should peacefully handover the power and prepare for 2024.All the best Mr President

Dear Mrs Lobo

I just got the sad news of Adv Lobo passing away in Jun 2020. It has come as a shock to me.

I was in touch with him thru late Mr D G Shah of Beach Queen Scty in Santacruz for their society matters.

Adv Lobo was a wonderful human being, down-to-earth, very humble and loving and always willing to help. I will really miss him

Sincere condolences to you and may God give you and your loved ones the strength and courage to go through this irreparable loss. May God give the dear departed soul eternal rest and everlasting peace.

With deep sympathy
