Point Blank

  • "We often fail as a society, but we also offer tantalising glimpses of our ability to nurture greatness against all odds."

    Kailash SatyarthiNobel peace laureate

  • "My comfort zone is children. I have seen they are brutally honest and transparent. Therefore, I can retain my sanity in their world. In the adult world, people have huge egos."

    Amole GupteFilm director

  • "I believe that after independence the biggest lie in India is the word secular. The people who gave birth to this word and who use it should apologise. No system can be secular. Political systems can be neutral towards sects, but not secular."

    Yogi AdityanathChief minister, Uttar Pradesh

  • "Gujarat is more corrupt than the entire country. Businessmen in Surat told me that policemen come to their units every two minutes to demand bribe."

    Rahul GandhiCongress vice president

  • "Why are people speculating over the results of Gujarat assembly elections? The prime minister hails from there and I am sure the BJP will win. I personally feel that voters will not forget the fact that their own leader is the prime minister."

    Nitish KumarChief minister, Bihar
