Insecurity
Miyaan (Bro), why are you collecting the chanda(donation) for a Hindu festival? Don’t you know that worship of statues is strictly prohibited in Islam?
Bhaijaan (Dear brother)  We are in minority in this country so in this matter, I just want to say -Jan hai to jahan hai. (If there is a live, there is a world) 

Captured
(In a shop)
Son – Papa! I wanna Maggie noodles.
Papa – No beta (dear son), this is a junk food. You may become sick by eating this.
Son – Mummy please!
Mummy–No beta , papa is right. This is a harmful product for your health.
Son – But on the TV commercial, the company says it nutritious.
Papa – Beta, to sell their products companies always tell a lie.
Son – No, it’s impossible. I think both of you are telling lie to save your money.

Public interest
During a sting operation, a CD had been made by a popular news channel in which a big leader of the ruling party was shown taking bribery. The ruling party managed the channel and the channel announced that in the public interest, contents of the CD are not being broadcasted.
After a few months, when elections were about to be held, the channel was managed by the opposition and in the public interest, the CD was broadcasted.

Revisiting Ambedkar’s Vision of ‘United States of India’: Can It Stand as Modern India’s Viable Alternative?

In April 2020, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor waded into the debate, arguing that a Presidential system would prevent the “one-man show” that the Indian system has evolved into. The proponents of this line of thought also cite the United States' (relative) political stability as one of the key reasons to support their argument. The proposal challenges the Indian Constitution’s “Basic structure doctrine” decided by the Supreme Court in the Kesavananda Bharathi case. However, this requires further examination: a Presidential form of government might fix some of India’s political gridlock, but it may also open Pandora’s Box, releasing a whole wake of issues in its place. This includes a politically biased Supreme Court and horse-trading of MPs on a scale unheard in Indian politics.
