Posted By: Rahul  |  Posted On: 27 Aug 2017  |  City: Kolkata

Question

I dont think most devotees of Modi expected or support Haryana riots or Gorakhpur deaths or the Beef killings.
The BJP has seriously lost the plot an perhaps the opposition really doesnt need to much as BJP commits Hara Kiri
How did it lose the plot this badly - they seemed to be so confidently projecting competence & control when they launched
And how can they display this so shamelessly openly & callously

Answer

 They are working on the assumption that public memory is short. When it is time to vote two years from now, will you really remember all this?
 

Question

I liked your peice in HT India @ 70. Any particular reason you feel that if there was no Prime minister Vajpayee there would nou Prime Minister Modi?

Posted By: Manish Sharma  |  Posted On: 26 Aug 2017  |  City: Delhi

Answer

 Yes, because the BJP was regarded as the great untouchable of Indian politics. Vajpayee broke through that barrier and demonstrated that the BJP could provide competent governance to India.

Question

Hi Vir, I'm big fan of your writing and always value the advice you give in your columns. My question is which male fragrances would you recommend for the typical Indian weather i.e. hot and sweaty. Ideally, something which is affordable, yet long-lasting.

Answer

Next week's The Taste is a list of 20 feminine fragrances that I recommend for the Indian climate. A list of men's fragrances will follow soon enough.

Question

Liked your article on Mamagato & while I suspect things are changing I would contest that
My experience has been Indians need to be comfortable with the vegetarian food, even the non-vegetarians. Across expatriate gatherings in SE Asia and the Middle East, while the majority of Indians are non-vegetarian, its always the veg that gets over first (and also possibly because it has a lower share of the menu)
Chinese veg food is pretty bland (unlike Thai) - cant see it taking off

Answer

 Not true in India. All hotels will tell you that the fastest moving items on their buffets are the non-vegetarian dishes. 
 

Question

Hi, what happened to Raghav Chhaddha of AAP?
any chance of getting him on virtuosity? He's really darn cute (and HOT!!!!)

Posted By: Pushkar  |  Posted On: 18 Aug 2017  |  City: Kharagpur

Answer

 I am not sure I find him as hot as you do, which will probably come as a relief to him. But yes, he is bright and articulate and we would love to have him as a guest on Virtuosity.
 

Question

Hi Vir, I love your articles and agree with your assessment of airline food. But my issue with home food is that it gets cold and unpalatable after a few hours, and the stewards refuse to heat it up for you, even in business class. So my question is how do you manage this issue while flying?

Posted By: Nikhil  |  Posted On: 17 Aug 2017  |  City: Gurgaon

Answer

 I take cold food that doesn't need reheating. 

Question

I liked your article on airline food. If I can ask you, what you pack and carry on long flights. Some airlines do not heat up your packed food, hence asking.

Posted By: Manish Sharma  |  Posted On: 16 Aug 2017  |  City: Delhi

Answer

 Cold meat usually. And some crisps or some gluten-free crackers.
 

Question

Your article India@70 in Hindustan Times hardly gave a mention of 3 lines to Architect Of Modern India Nehruji.When even people like Devi lal and lal Denga got more space.
