Hello TM readers,

Happy Winters!

It may be raining in some places, or a dry winter somewhere or a snowy winter in some places. All in all, a cold season is on. Wherever you are from, we are ready with our hot contents like always. This December issue deals with the theme of Music. We have interviewed a traditional yet melodious all-girl music band ‘Tetseo Sisters‘. Please go through the interview as we have put forward some interesting questions to them.

This issue also includes ‘Top 11 Music Bands in India’, an article on ‘Musical Therapy’, a TM video featuring a young flute player Jai Krishna Pillai, a beautiful take on Indian Politics ‘Political Mandolin’ by Aswin, one of our official contributors. Please go through all the posts and articles of this issue and let us know what do you think.

Recently BJP’s saffron has coloured Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh in recent Vidhan Sabha elections of these two states. Though the margin of victory in Gujarat for BJP is hair-splitting, but a win is win at last which makes BJP form a state government on Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat, the fortress of BJP as they call it. The expectation of people are higher than before from Mr. Prime Minister, Modi for the promises he made and words he said. Mr. Modi needs to prove his words true only by the way of development, not by mere surmise.

We also congratulate Indian Cricket Team’s 23rd captain Rohit Sharma for his third double ton in his recently concluded ODI and also for his recent T20I 2nd ton which took India to an unassailable series win over Sri-Lankans. We hope and wish he continues what he has been doing so far and may his purple patch goes on and on.

I, personally not sure of the 2G scam case final verdict recently. I urge honourable Supreme Court of India to re-take over the case’s proceedings as the CBI’s charge-sheet on DMK’s members proves to be vague in the court. Former telecom minister A Raja and DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi has been recently acquitted from the case. The duos acquittal from the case came as a blessing for DMK ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Based on it, Opposition Party Congress has raised huge question mark to the ruling party’s 2014 Lok Sabha Election claim of ‘Congress: A political party of too many Scams’ as the 2G Scam Verdict has proved DMK- a Congress alliance of not guilty.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully test fired a Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air Missile (QRSAM) from a defense base off Odisha coast on Friday. This success of DRDO will be very helpful to Indian Army as it is an all-weather and all-terrain missile having electronic countermeasures against all known aircraft jammers. We, at Thousand Miles congratulate DRDO for this success and appreciate their continuous effort in making India an indigenous Defense Power.
