GOVERNOR TATHAGAT ROY ON BENGALI GREATNESS, ‘BENGALI BOYS ARE SWEEPING FLOORS AND BENGALI GIRLS ARE BAR DANCERS IN MUMBAI’
But the one who I really want to wish goodbye is to Tathagata Roy, that this rabid hate monger is a Governor of a State is the shame that India lives in today. This time he has attacked Bengalis and its collapsing greatness.
“Who will explain to them that the era of these stalwarts is long gone, and the greatness of Bengal is gone too. Now from Haryana to Kerala, Bengali boys are sweeping floors and Bengali girls are bar dancers in Mumbai”
that the Indian educated youth has to sweep floors and dance in bars (nothing wrong with doing that though), is a matter that will not be addressed, because as you know, making Pakodas is the other choice. But then for some like Tathagata, bigotry comes in all shapes and sizes.

CONGRESS DISSOLVES IN TELANGANA AFTER 12 MLA’s BREAK RANK, AIMIM TO BE THE OPPOSITION
Talking about illusions and disappearances, Congress was crying foul, this time in Telangana. In a big jolt to the Congress in Telangana, 12 of its 18 MLAs broke away from the party to join Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s party, the TRS. Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy later approved their request, boosting the strength of the defectors to two-thirds of that of the Congress Legislature Party in the southern state.
Two-thirds of the MLAs of a party can form a separate bloc and the anti-defection law does not apply to them, according to the Representation of the People Act. This now makes AIMIM, the principal opposition in Telangana. As for Congress, they are calling it Daylight murder of democracy and still not looking to find ways out of the two things, lack of vision and infighting.

POPE FRANCIS CHANGES THE LORD’S PRAYER, EXEMPTS GOD FROM ALL EVIL
And before we head out and leave you to enjoy your week ahead, if you are aware of the Christian Lord’s prayer, memorised by Christian children all over the world and repeated at almost every act of Christian worship: “Our Father, who art in heaven….” Well, that has undergone change.
Now Pope Francis has risked the wrath of traditionalists by approving a change to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer. Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation”, it will say “do not let us fall into temptation”. The pope said in 2017 he believed the wording should be altered. “It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation,” he told Italian TV. “I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into the temptation to then see how I have fallen.
According to the Bible, Jesus taught the words to his disciples when they asked him how they should pray. Some have expressed concern about changes to the wording. Meredith Warren, a lecturer in biblical and religious studies at Sheffield University, said: “This new version of the Lord’s Prayer tries to avoid implying that God has some hand in evil.
“But in doing so the pope not only overlooks the many biblical examples where God works with the devil to tempt his followers and even his own son.
The Catholic church in England and Wales said it had no immediate plans to change the wording. “The Lord’s prayer has been changed in the Italian language – there are no plan at present for it to change in English,”
And with that, we lead you not into temptation, but the weekend, which shall have many temptations. Until Monday, do take care, stay hydrated, give water to the thirsty and food to the hungry. Rest up, for next week is another ride. Until Monday, good bye from takeapart.in
