Why was the decision to carve out new states taken? Obviously, because smaller states are easily and more effectively governable. There are greater chances of their speedy economic development. Political compulsions are another explanation. There was also no clash of interests between the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance and the Congress, the principal opposition party.

of the new age,
colour do you see?
Day: The wounds are still fresh,
cameraman calls the shots,
significance of OM,
Will the Qutub Minar stand tall again ?
