UP being the landscape of Indian politics has its own advantage of being the most populous state.With largest number of parliamentarian constituency, the mega  assembly with 403 members  has its pivotal  path of Upper house members the chunk of Rajya Sabha members.UP State in pathetic state where development needs to be taken on priority finds snail pace,therefore the dynamic of politics remain in shell of community.

Muslims,Dalits has rare opportunity of  appropriate education,health,employment are cause of impoverish state and poverty.Congress and BJP do not take advantage of party workers their leadership qualities and mass appeal in the selection of candidates.Party worker and leaders have the same complaints about the national leaders.But silver lining is that Uttar Pradesh elected more than 15% of its muslim community strength with equal record 63 Muslim legislators to the 403-member state assembly in the just-concluded elections out of which. 40 Muslim candidates of the Samajwadi Party and 14 are of BSP Congress has three and three Muslim candidates of the Peace Party and two of the Kaumi Ekta Dal were elected, as was one Independent.

Amazingly BSP dedicated works and leaders raised the same rhythm  of Maya being inaccessible and sparingly meets its dedicated comrades of their community. Mayawati former Chief Minister showered blame at the Muslims  not falling in line on her election debacle. Maya's claim that over 70 per cent of Muslims voted for the SP could be tenable as she has failed to please her insider so the rumour mill that she is not helpful for the lower community which follow sheep mentality alienated from the BSP and fell like bursting cloud on SP rostrum.

SP with its Prince Akhilesh Yadav with discipline vocabulary and diction being his maiden election has given the people of UP the hope of development  along with sense of belonging to their caste and the higher caste parties talking walking and behaving like super humans with pinch of arrogance cased their fortune in UP election in month of July followed with election of Vice President in August.

Congress rule is under gloom,their continued arrogance can bring Mamata, Maya,DMK Jaylalitha,SP with consensus candidate   for the top post can overturn the government at the centre.Three important political events has to take place, Election Commission of India, notification to be issued March 12 for 58 Rajya Sabha members retiring across 15 states, the election of Rajya Sabha members, second ensuing election in state of Karnataka Gujarat, and Himachal and finally the election of President of India,the key to all appointments.

Upper house members due to retire include: Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi (Rajasthan), BSP's Naresh Chandra Aggarwal (Uttar Pradesh) and union minister Mukul Roy of Trinamool Congress (West Bengal), and Rashtriya Janata Dal's Rajniti Prasad (Bihar),BJP's Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley (Gujarat), Ravi Shankar Prasad (Bihar), Hema Malini (Karnataka), Kalraj Mishra, Vinay Katiyar (both Uttar Pradesh), Congress' Raashid Alvi (Andhra Pradesh) and Rajya Sabha deputy chairman K. Rahman Khan (Karnataka), 

UP politics  is the breeding ground of Indian leadership but with dynastic parties culture the new parties may emerge but retain the inner core structure is always tied with tenterhooks and thus smash into pieces in the local to national elections.

Wild weather due to solar storm heading for Earth

Geomagnetic storm is racing from the Sun toward Earth, and its expected arrival on Thursday could affect power grids, airplane routes and space-based satellite navigation systems and plane routes. storm was triggered by a pair of massive solar flares earlier this week which means there is a good chance of seeing the northern lights at higher latitudes, as the skies are clear.

"It's hitting us right in the nose," said Joseph Kunches, an expert at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa).He described the storm as the Sun's version of Super Tuesday - in a reference to the US Republican primaries and caucuses in 10 states.

"Space weather has gotten very interesting over the past 24 hours," Mr Kunches added.
The charged particles are expected to hit Earth at 4,000,000 mph (6,400,000 km/h), and Noaa predicts the storm will last until Friday morning.Images of from the Sun's region where the flares happened show a complex network of sunspots indicating a large amount of stored magnetic energy.
