    I feel Nalin is the best candidate to give speech at Karnataka's top universities...he has got a clear plan how 1$=15 rs... Many MBA students who study economics as a subject, and also BCom students will greatly benefit from such valuable financial and macro-economic insights of Nalini.

    Wow...MAHE chose the right person to speak in their institution. It begs a question, when will Kateel, or Bava or Kadher, Bommai or even Siddu, give lectures of this caliber if invited? If answer is never, we are what we are because of the leaders we chose. DK and Udupi should make conscious decision to field candidates with intellectual capacity from ground up. As an electorate we need to have consensus that we need to field candidates with vision, and with genuine interest in our wellbeing. This method fielding candidates and voting based on caste, religion and creed must be discouraged.

    I agree with your comment partially,because kateel is no doubt a fool, but siddhu and khader are well educated and intellectually far better than our chaiwala himself.......we have never selected our leaders based on progress reports.....and as you rightly told we are what we are because of the leaders we chose....and we deserve leaders like nalin only ..because we too are with ugly mindset...

    If invited all of them you named and those whom you didn't name who is RAGA can give speech. Is it any big deal to give speeches? By the way not to forget RAGA has given speeches in worlds top universities, the question is when will MAHE invites them? The answer is, they won't as they invite only those whom they suporrt to vote by default. And finally to add not to forget even Lalu delivered his speech at Harward when he was Railway minister.

    Mayya,What about Shobha, Raghu , Eashwar, or CT etc ,are they able to do ? So elect the leaders with wisdom. Can Modi go to Cambridge or Oxford and have a simple interaction with the students?

    ‘India in the Amritkaal’ needs further insight on what Amritkaal people are enjoying these days. It’s only people can say it’s Amritkaal not the govt who is in the path of destroying democracy which is the only way to Amritkaal.
