  1. New topic is not coming after 2nd April, what happened you will not provide new topic ? I am waiting for new topic . I participate GD topics I get my pleasure. I feel happy.

    1. We are not posting new topics due to some technical issues Tinku. We’ll sort them out in a week for sure.

  2. According to coalition government form when one part doesn’t get the majority then some of the party together wants to form the government but for a long run coalition government will not fruitful . They fight each other first of all who will be the PM , may be selected their leader but leader doesn’t have power to take any decision because he has take consent everybody . If any controversy comes other party will not satisfy and the question will come to the PM to prove the majority then dissatisfied party want to withdraw their support. We know in our earlier history former prime minister had to resign within 13 days , we know Devi Gowda government had fallen. When the parliament election comes then regional party wants to alliance with each other but actually it will not fruitful . All regional parties leader has desire to be the PM but supposed they will be PM they don’t have power to take any decision independently rather they will be busy to take care of their chair then who will take care of our country? So one party will get majority they will form the government and we will get a stable government it is better for Indian economy and better for our country.

  3. According to me life without a mobile phone it’s very difficult we can’t believe it supposed we will not take food one day we can alive but without mobile we can’t think, of course mobile is very important thing , we can contact with anybody within a second , we can use it for our work purpose like online utility bill payment, check bank account, transfer the balance etc , we don’t need to go to bank , don’t need to outlet. If we will go for out of station we can contact our family , friend very easily even we can see through video call what they are doing, they also can see how I am , what I am doing , where I am staying everything. We can use our mobile for our entertainment purpose, watch like a television. We want to gossip with my lots of friends at a time we can . Nowadays social media is very strong if we required any help we will get. So without mobile we can’t.

  4. According to me love marriage and arranged marriage both required for understanding those couple have good understanding they are happy in their life. Love marriage people they knew each other so it depends on them and arranged marriage it depends on both the family their status ,economical position etc. But Love marriage as they knew each other after marriage they have no attraction I e after marriage love decrease and arranged marriage they are the new I e love increases. Love marriage they don’t want to accept each other then blame game start and then they decide they will go for divorce. But arrange marriage couple try to adjust each other because it depends on both the family. So arrange marriage family get chance to get information of groom’s family background, education, financial position etc. I e there is any incident happens both the family try to mutual .So this is good.
