For nine years the esteemed UPA Government, both 1 and 2 have strived hard to construct a Nation and with the completion of nine years in power serving the nation, the powers that be have decided to let the nations know about the Sri Manmohan Singh led government's modest achievements in nation building. The High Command is not at odds with the PM, just so you know.
While the equally competent and esteemed Government of Sri Atal Bihari Vajpais NDA regime did the same with their own modest attempt to educated the aam junta on its nation building under the name of India Shinning, they were not as successful in informing the stubborn public about their contributions to make India shine.
Bharat Nirman is not an advertising campaign or an election slogan as pointed out by the esteemed Minister of Broadcasting and Information Sri Manish Tiwari, he has clarified that it is just an exercise in telling the story of India, the journey of India.
The money spent on these informational pieces of educational materials, be it print, radio, broadcast or the internets has been spent with the interest of the aam admis in mind and it is beneficial to everyone so thus in conclusion it is not the waste of the 6% of Indians who pay their taxes.

Usage

INC - Bharat Nirman!
BJP - India Shining!

Left-handed wrist spinners, who are much rarer than right-handed wrist-spinners, are called chinaman bowlers, after an early left-arm finger spinner of Chinese descent, Ellis Achong, who sometimes bowled wrist spinners as a variation while playing for the West Indies. A ball delivered in this way will spin from the off-side to the leg-side for a right-handed batsman. Paul Adams of South Africa is the best-known current chinaman bowler, though he no longer features in his country's national side. Australian one-day all-rounder Brad Hogg is another current exponent of left-arm wrist-spin, as is his teammate, batsman Simon Katich. Beau Casson, another Australian is another fine left arm chinaman bowler.

Usage

Chinaman bowlers have been known to chuck a bad googly on occasion.

Definition

Famous Indian celebrity chef, much loved by housewives for his relaxed manner, his easy-to-follow recipes and his helpful cooking tips.

Sanjeev paved the way for the modern Indian cooking show on cable back in the early 1990's, and is a highly recognised figure in the country today. His popularity is not limited to television alone, and his numerous cookbooks are in great demand all over the subcontinent.

For many Indian housewives, Sanjeev was and still is the ultimate in marriageable material - any man who can cook, and can(presumably) make a meal for his worn-out wife is considered quite the catch by women the world over. Aunties have been known to blush and simper like star struck teenagers when meeting him.

Usage

"That Sanjeev Kapoor is so handsome na! AND he cooks everything from vadas to vindaloo! His wife is sooooooooo lucky ... my husband refuses to even make one cup chai for me when I'm unwell. Hmph."

Definition

An undocumented, informal (also questionable) set of principles guiding the political class when working across party lines in gorement.

Coalition refers to the collection of parties agreeing to run the government as a team.

Dharma is duty, in Sanskrit.

The term is of recent coinage, and has been in use rather frequently. Major political decisions by ruling coalition parties revolve around a series of deals between members. A lot of the time, significantly poor decisions are attributed to the vagaries and impulses of petulant partners.

The Dharma in question has an air or irony attached to it.

Usage

"What to do? Coalition Dharma only, no? We cannot give any more concessions to the Rummy Players Association. Tomorrow, Housie players will start asking more-more tables here and there, you will give or what? Our club is not run by one single dynasty, you know"
