The above mentioned examples show Modi’s penchant for out-of-the-box thinking and he has followed up his bold Maharashtra experiment with similar `shockmoves in other states. For instance: Vijay Rupani, chief minister of Gujarat is a Jain baniya and belongs to the minority community, Raghubar Das, the chief minister of Jharkhand, is an OBC (other backward caste) from the Teli community in a predominantly tribal state, while ML Khattar, the chief minister of Haryana is Punjabi in a state where the Jats rule the roost. Some say that this is Modi’s way of empowering minority castes and communities. Some others believe that this is a good way of keeping chief ministers in check as they would become wholly dependant on Modi without a power base of their own within the state. The Yogi’s appointment however doesnt fit both categories. He has a strong base of his own in UP not to mention a loyal and energetic band of followers.

The team behind it are passionate about spirits and love design: both the bottle and the spirit are vibrant, modern and instantly recognisable. Ripe orange, with grape-like flavours, and juicy dates are seamlessly blended with traditional, spiced botanicals to make a top gin. Old Bakery Gin from London. This has a great backstory. Founder Ian Puddick discovered his office was once a bakery famous for selling homemade – and illegal - gin. He tracked down the family behind the affair, found the recipe had been passed down and set about recreating the gin in the old bakery. Crazy Gin is the world's first clear lassi, the result of a mission to introduce a British/Indian gin that combines the strong connection between the two countries. Crazy Gin blends the traditional Punjabi drink, which is made from yoghurt, water and spices, with British gin.

Because I have strange habits, I spent a lot of time one night last week watching videos on YouTube of Indian-speaking grandmothers and other home cooks making dal makhani , a rich black lentil dish from the Punjabi region. Unpolished home cooking videos are one of my favorite ways to learn how to make a dish that is foreign to me, and while what Ive made here isnt an authentic black lentil ( urad ) dal, its worth knowing why it is isnt. For example, it would have a small portion of kidney beans ( rajma ) it in too, youd definitely have soaked your lentils and beans together the night before and in almost every case, cooked them in a pressure cooker on another burner while making the spiced base sauce, and then together for a little or long while. The more authentic versions I looked at have a lot more butter and cream in them, and only sometimes began with an onion.

The service provides real-time translation between English and at least 12 other languages. But the system isnt flawless; some of the less common languages, like Hmong, need to be scheduled in advance. And there have been instances in which the interpreter speaks the wrong dialect of a language like Dari, spoken in several countries in Central Asia. Often a staff member can help. When someone shows up who doesnt speak English, “right away, we try to get them to at least say the language,” says Donna Paul, the longtime clinic manager. The health center has doctors and nurses who speak Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Tagalog and Spanish, and has hired administrative staff and medical assistants who speak Hmong and Mien. But even with the telephone service and a multilingual staff, challenges remain. Mien, a language spoken by some Indochinese refugees who fled to the United States during the Vietnam War, has no written language.

Desi Downtown? Well, it's not really downtown, being situated in Nottingham's Sheesha Corner, the bottom stub of Hockley which some cartographers would place outside the city centre. Even so, this restaurant is handy for Panthers fans and others exiting the Motorpoint Arena.I notice, by the way, that there are a lot of cars on nearby pavements. Given that the city has once again been short-changed by the Treasury, it may be prudent for the council to dispatch a couple of uniformed retainers to...

Punjab polls: BSP makes Phillaur seat fight toughEven as the BSP, which was founded by Punjabi Dalit icon Kashi Ram, has never been able to make its presence felt in the state that has the highest proportion of Dalits (31.9%), its presence in this constituency is expected to act as a spoiler for AAP.

There are other advantages of ambiguity as well. In a high voltage campaign such as Punjab both Congress and Akalis could highlight the fact that he is not only not Sikh but not even a Punjabi, and target him as an ‘outsider’. When politicians across the board are playing the Punjab vs Haryana card, AAP’s CM candidate being Haryanvi can be a liability. What could work for Kejriwal, though, is that cutting across such sectarian politics is the elite-subaltern divide, and AAP has been good at mobilising subaltern groups. Given that Punjab has the largest share of Dalits in its population with no clear political force to represent their interests, this is one segment that AAP will be targeting. It is not essential that every party declares a CM candidate; for instance, BJP has not done so in UP. Moreover, as we have seen in these post-truth times, election statements and promises do not matter once elections have been won.
