I think that Congress and its affiliates and journalists who support them have made trolling quite a sophisticated measure of intervention.
The country's future is what you will make it. Make your local representatives in parliament and assembly more answerable. Ask for more transparency in use of public funds.
With ability to produce a diverse range of products, India has the potential to become the one-stop sourcing destination for brands and retailers of ASEAN nations.
I want to categorically say that whatever I am, I have made a space for myself in Indian politics and media out of my own perseverance and hard work.
For me, I have never walked a path that has been carefully crafted or charted. I have gone into territory unknown on many an occasion.
I think when somebody wants to work diligently, when somebody wants to take away the cobwebs and see where attention is needed, to fix things, there is obviously going to be a backlash from those who have, for years, gained from status quo.
I never used gender as my crutch. Many women don't use gender as a crutch.

One has to inculcate a feeling that if I build a road, then a Hindu or a Muslim or a Parsi or a Christian can walk on that road. We all have equal right to share water, electricity, or road.
I am a living example of PM Modi's tolerance... he forgave me though I publicly attacked him.

If you teach a girl, you are not just imparting education to a woman but to a family that will later help in nation building.
Legislation has a certain jurisdiction. It can't change mindsets and hearts.
Enhancing fabric production will also lead to strengthening the power loom sector.
There is always some criticism. Tell me one thing that Narendra Modi does and you don't criticise. If he gives a chance to newcomers, you say he forgot the old guard; if he gives a chance to an incumbent, you say Modi doesn't give a chance to young leaders.
I think too many obituaries have been written about me.
I think processes should not differ just because you are a minister. This is a job - a responsibility - not a right to override the processes that every citizen goes through.
As I heard out people who had done others wrong, I'd often wonder how a human allows his or her better judgement to override their conscience. When I share these feelings with my friends, they say, 'Everyone isn't like you.' But I think it's easy to assert your better feelings and not allow the darker side to dominate your personality.
To say a democracy prospers only if one set of voices is heard would be untrue.
