Mgmt tips from the Govt.

I am traveling a lot these days. Nearly a hundred kms a day. Not a simple task considering the roads I literally go-halt-go-halt-go through. The Hosur – Electronic City – Bommanahalli – Silk board – Koramangala & back the same way – road is not a joke to commute through. There have been many pot holes and the million obstacles that you literally have to skim through are making the journey even more tiring. But this is just the skeleton not the skin and flesh of my thought.
When a government procrastinates one of its essential duties what does it benefit from? Considering a duty like laying of roads I thought of penning down my ideas. The things that I could assimilate have been mentioned here. If you find more consequences of many other activities you are most welcome to discuss about that.
When a highly used road which is in the residential area is not laid on time the size of the broken patches increases both in depth and width. This increases the amount of suspended particles/pollutants in the air to unexplainable amounts. Thus every resident and the passenger is made to visit doctors for reasons varying from cold, cough, throat infection, fever, eye irritation, eye allergy, skin diseases and many more which are not striking my small brain now. The doctor earns and he prescribes tablets, lotions, drops, syrups, injections and even hospitalization. Also considering the number of accidents in that area which is rare but fetches good amounts to the doctor. So the sales of medicines increase multifold and the doctor earns hefty amounts. Thus the sales tax that needs to be paid for the purchase of medicines which is an amount like a lottery won by the govt.
Also considering the fact that wear and tear of spares in the vehicles running through these roads is very very high. So add the tax that the government earns by the sales of the spares. It’s not a small number.
All this is done because the government saved huge sum by not laying the roads on time. Kudos govt.
Dear Kalaingar thatha, Stalin Uncle, other legends of the ruling party please visit my place as frequently as possible. Its not that people from my place want to see your cheerful, happy and merry making lifestyles and faces, it’s just that roads and the entire municipality is cleaned and laid properly when you all visit. So I welcome you all to come here and stay as long as you all want. If you find time please sit in your cars and go around the entire of T.N so that all places are at least cleaned if not developed.

I would like to appreciate the govt. for predicting the rains even before the meteorological dept. Now that rains have stopped you can lay the roads. It’s seriously bloody irritating to go by the same old tattered roads getting to pay the doctor, pharmacist, spares dealers huge chunks of money and still I will have to pay my income tax and you will post ads on the TV saying pay your taxes on time. On time for what??? Bad words are flowing out of my mouth. But I swear I will pay my taxes on time.

Mappilai Team!!!

It was really nice to see the next door Kumarans, Satishs,              Saravanans and many more simple chaps being crowned the winners. 
The superstars win the ICL. A team that I really liked and cheered for. Reasons a ton. The first time the 80% tamilians team ran through batting and bowling of every opponent. The guys were really like "you have seen them some where" types.

Let me introduce the Superstars to you if you have not seen much about them.

The typical heafty guys who can be seen in and around the beaches of chennai.... Nice bowlers. Tamed much of the opponents easily.

 The "Karunas in Nandha" type of thiruttu Muzhi pasanga. V Saravanan had good opportunities to rip thru the opponents bowling. G Vignesh did much of his bowling talk. He is a bowler who has the typical "curd rice" bowling action.
The coach whom i respected and admired a lot as a player. He is M Beaven the OZ player who had a high standard of batting , bowling and fielding. He was one of the few batsmen who had a above 50 average in one dayers.

Nice way to have started the first ICL tournament. I personally feel that this tourney was a huge success for the amount of media attention it received. Every inch of the program was neatly planned and executed. Huge casts, singers lined up, bands performing made the interval time easy to pass. On the whole I like the matches and wish our mappilai team a huge success.

P.S :
1. This mappilai team won 3 crores + nearly 2.5 lakhs for each match won (totally won nearly 8 matches).
2. We too have a "Saroja Samanikalooo" song just like the "Chak De" song for the rest of the nation.

What Car???

Somwhere in 2010 a conversation strikes between a few kids. One asks the other "What car does your dad own?". Flash comes the reply "Muslim" car. The other yells out "Hindu" car. Yeah You read it right and more importantly i have typd it right.
The world's first Muslim car is to be unveiled soon. The news is out. This car is the result of the market analysis done in Malaysia. Analysts have found that the muslim segment has not been proplerly harnessed of their potentials.
I was wondering if this is a positive way to harness the markets?? A funny thought came running in my mind. All these muslim cars would be green and the other religion cars will be like safron for hindus, white etc etc... Although I appreciate the analysts work, I strongly disagree with this idea.
Read through here for details.

P.S : Please let all cars go when signal turns green. Dont make "Riligious signals" too.

Well how do we go about buying a car?? How do we know if it is needed for us? How do we know the monthly bills when we get a car? Here are a few calculations….
1. Choose the car you wish for. Be it anything.
2. Get to know its mileage from websites or auto magazines.
3. Get to know its Cost from websites or auto magazines.
4. What is the amount you are going to pay as the down payment? (The amount that you would pay to drive home a car)
5. Are you going in for a loan? If yes then how much EMI you can manage? (EMI is easy monthly installments)
6. How many kilometers would you drive per month? (1000-2000 kms is the max a individual in a city can drive. If you find it to be more than 3000 then you are a taxi cab driver. Am I right??)
7. What is the budget you are planning to allocate for the car?

When you have found the data for the above questions then follow on. Let’s assume car in my mind costs 6L and the mileage is 18 kms and the type of vehicle is Diesel.

Say I make a down payment of 2L for the car and the rest is a ICICI car loan for 4L.
So now I have completed the steps 1,2,3 and 4.

To calculate the EMI, we have the loan amount i.e. 4L. The current ICICI rate per lakh is some where near Rs. 1710. So for the 4L loan amount it is 4 x 1710 = 6840. This is the EMI. With this we add an insurance amount of Rs. 1000 and a maintenance coat of Rs. 1000. So the fixed cost actually is Rs. 8840. This is the fixed coat / month. By fixed I mean even if you keep the car locked in the garage for the entire month you are entitled to pay this amount.

Now, had you compared a petrol variant and a diesel variant you might be confused which one to go for? The following calculation will answer that question with ease.

Fuel cost per month = (Cost per liter / Mileage) * Number of kilometers you plan to drive. Optimistically 1500 kms per month.

So the diesel variant comes to : (35 / 18) * 1750 = 3402


(taxi drivers read on...
Now say you are planning to use this as an exhaustive tour vehicle, then your number of kms is bound to be 3000-4000 kms / month. So the cost / month is = (35 / 18) * 4000 = 7777.
This amount is the final sum which is = 6840 + 7777 = Rs. 14617.

GRAND TOTAL = 14617           ......................)

If this amount (10242) is ok (per month) then I will proceed with this car. Else choose a smaller budget car.

We found that only when the car is used for more than 3000 kms per month diesel variant is profitable compared to that of petrol.

Here is a small calculation for few cars in the market today. If anything fits your pocket plus you have the NEED to buy it go ahead.

P.S : For more reviews on cars use and They are too good. Plus go with the regular auto car magazines which drill the cars inside out.

"One step manual" to deport immigrants.

Poor chap. No other word comes out when I think of Dr. Mohammed Haneef. He has been the talk of the news channels for the past two days. But why all this? Juse because this has happened in the international arena and he came out bring the Aussie govt. to harsh criticism. How good are the police there or are they not good in fabricating and manupulating the facts as in India? Had it been India either the facts would have been destroyed totally that the chargesheet will be dismissed saying lack of evidence or the victim would have been under bars for trial by manipulated facts. Thats the speciality of Indian police. They make victims out of nothing and present facts from nowhere. Fun apart.
There were two things I found amusing in this case. First, if US, UK, Aussie or any other country for that matter wants to reduce the immigrants or keep them at bay then all they need is to do a simple thing. Take the photo graphs or some belonging of all the "to-be-victims" and put it in a crime scene and have them deported to their own country cancelling their Visas as happened in this very case. So a black mark on his passport means he cant get back to the same place and needless to say that the new immigrants are admonished.
Second thing was why should Haneef return to the same country which has put him in such a trauma? Not to prove his innocence though. He has made himself to be worthy citizen of any country and can win a job like a lottery in no amount of time.
A lesson for all of us : Having the mind open is not enough. Have your eyes, ears and your senses active and open.

Made (only) in India!!!

With this title I, by no means, am projecting the technology that is made in India. I had a aberrant thought and wanted to have a look at great peoples profiles in orkut and obviously it started with Mr. Orkut Buyukkokten. When I looked at his album photos I was wondering at how cool brains enjoy life and my second look reminded me straight of our lady commentator.. Yes!!! Ms. Mandira Bedi. Have a look at the photos and you would know the reason for her to be remembered.

Well if you have not got it yet look at her photo too. He has worn a socks which has the Brazilian flag on it!!!##!!!! Well all I could say was he was not born in India. If he was an Indian and the founder of orkut and done the same thing to the Indian flag he would have been in gutters and orkut would have been banned marcillesly all over India. But Mr. Orkut was sensible enough to put the flag on his socks which goes in to the shoes and finally unnoticed. But he has not been sensible with this photo being put in Orkut. Brazillians awake?? Guess they take pride in this act also coz they have got accustomed of seeing their flag as the dress for beach volleyball matches... :-)

donors - are acceptors of good health.

Why did we think "we need to donate blood"? What reason did everyone tell us and what reason did we keep giving ourself to donate blood. "Why did we think we have to donate blood"? We thought we are donors and many lives of so called acceptors is saved because of the blood we donate. Well thats by and large right. But thats not all. By donating blood we are saving our own life. !!!!. Yes, read it again. I am right.
Making blood donations a habit is a good habit. It helps reduce the risk of heart/cardio problems. Studies have confirmed it. I dint know about this thing till recently when I donated blood along with a few friends of mine. Have a look at this for a clear explanation.

I learnt two things this time. One is the above said thing. You live healthy by donating blood and the second thing is when you have been asked to donate blood ask if it is a direct donation or a replacement. We know what a donation is. When someone needs O+ve only O+ve donors are called for. But in a replacement the blood from the blood bank is used by the doctors for a patient and the same quantity (in units) needs to be replaced. The quantity of blood, not the group of blood, is the only criteria for replacement. They accept any group for replacement. So dont miss out an opportunity to donate blood. Keep your self fit.

Hungry Kya???

Who said necessity is the mother of all inventions?? I guess he was absolutely right.. Looking at a step deeper the cause for necessity is Hunger. A man goes to work to earn money. Money for three square meals a day, for him and his family. A man joins a political party for the dire needs of food. A baby cries for food. A child is sent to school so he can be a better individual and a smart kid and a wealthy child who can feed his family. Apart from food other needs like shelter, love, care, family, materialistic needs etc etc are secondary and tertiary which many families can easily do without. But Food??? No way... Without food in a city for a few days, hunger spreads like an epidemic. You can survive a few days but then when all the fat is dissolved there is nothing but your life fading away.
Food has been the primal reason for disputes many a times in this earth. A simple example is a politician says hold my flag in this rally and you will be fed, stomach-full. Another example is the cauvery issue. Two states want water for harvesting food and other needs which only water can satisfy. The rally might be a violent and life taking one. Look at all the issues on this earth they are primarily rooted to food.
Had food been available at each mans disposal when ever he wants and how ever he wants the earth would have been a little less of the troubles and all the materialistic problems.
So I pray GOD to give ""cheat codes"" to every dish on this earth and give a printed out sheet to every individual so he can wish for any dish he needs and have it merrily. You ask for Chinese pot fried noodles and KFC roasted fried chicken.. zoom you have it on the table. Think of a life like that and who will bother to go fight and earn for his living. The problems are half solved, ain't it?
Hunger is the major enemy every nation is fighting against now and will be fighting against for all times.

What a Change...

The blogs I wrote all these days were the output of my brain. But this ones from my heart. Not a love story though.
I had been to Chennai recently a couple of times and this is where I realized how much I have changed in the past few years. I had taken my cousin along who has just completed school. I had taken him to Chennai city center (a mall like Forum in Bangalore, but very posh and lively!!!). The few questions he was asking as we were walking around (not buying though) made me realize the differences. He asked me
1. Who will come to such huge malls when the items are so costly.
2. If people do the shopping (like clothes, trinkets, salons etc) in smaller shops they can save time and money also.
3. I took him to coffee day kind of eatery the cold coffee was Rs.55 and I ordered one but he said he will drink it somewhere in the roadside tea shops. Cold coffee for 55 was absolutely fine for me. He was not fine with it...
4. I got a box of Australian cookies and he sked me whats so special in it that u r paying Rs.130 for that. I said its Australian and he replied "they won't be any better than our marie biscuits, see!!!" Well he was partially right which i realized only after having it.
5. There was INOX in that mall and I asked him of his interest to watch any movie. He straight away asked me "How much is the ticket". I, in a way not to scare him, said Rs. 150 which was actually not that cheap for the POC 3 and Shrek 3 running there. He innocently asked me "Who will pay so much and watch. We can buy CDs and watch a hundred times". I was counting the number of movies I watched in PVR and INOX. Many.
For all the questions of his I had a smile as a reply and nothing else. A smile because I went into the flashback mode thinking this is how I was a few years ago, before I stepped in to college and then in Bangalore. This is where I learnt that coffee days and hotels with unknown menus and unspellable dishes and sometimes costly ones together are the way of life. Even if you search a hundred roads you cant find affordable-cheap food, movie theaters every day. I was also reminded about how I used to ridicule my friends, who studied in Bangalore, for their way of spending in coffee days and day long strolls at huge malls and their aimless money spending attitudes. But today I along with a million other people are a part of that "Yes I am lazy-what the hell-I have money I spend it" group.
Malls have become my daily life lines and cold coffees and sandwiches that cost thrice the acceptable price have become affordable to me now. I ask whats wrong in it and have them merrily!!! What a drastic change!!!
Well 99% of the city dwellers have this change i guess. What a change, i was wondering!!!!

U R Watching..... Kalaignar TV

This was the day I was expecting for although I am not an AIADMK supporter. The divide between the SUN network and DMK party has forced the DMK party to start a new channel called "Kalaingar TV"!!! A channel for every politician??!!! Viako TV, Thol Thiruma TV, Mama TV, Mami TV... list is endless... and its quite possible only in TN... Back to the point. The DMK and the SUN network have fought battles and even masterminded several attacks together. DMK plans... SUN implements. D. Maran was the representative for DMK in the central synonymous to M. Maran. But he is kicked out. The only educated think tank is now out. Kalaingar TV is for sure not going to get even a tithe of the TRP SUN has. What in the earth politicians are thinking?? Audiences watch TV to see the hazzles and leg pullings in politics. No they need entertainment, fun, comedy and most of all the soapy serials. Will Kalaingar write scrips and Stalin, Alagiri, Raja etc etc play cameo??? Will be fun to watch (just like the latest TR's release!!!)
What if the SUN network for some reason forms ally with AIADMK??? A 400 crore media industry can't be fought single handedly by this Kalaignar TV alone. Why dont these politicians think sense?? The entire south-Indian media is with SUN.
TV - sun, k tv, sun news, gemini, teja, surya, e-nadu, sun music etc.
PAPER - Kungumam, Dhinakaran.
FM - S fm, Surian fm (as far as I know).
Ting ting tiding.... Kalaingar TV....
DMK is ruining itself... AIADMK wear your brains out and plug the deal on your side. Its once in politics offer. DMK see you around the next elections.

Ragging Banned.

Ragging has been finally banned and the Supreme Court has given out the necessary orders. Yes, this is a news thats making the headlines for many years now. But whats it, that has made me take a special notice of this news? The Supreme Court has ordered "a criminal charge" on those who indulge in ragging activities. OMG!!! A criminal!!! Yes. God only knows the degree to which this would be enforced. A guy and a girl seen talking normally in a strict college can be expelled on charges of ragging and the culprit is the guy with a criminal charge on them. So is this the POTA kind of act against the college students?? When I read the news I could heard a bell ring in my head. Hereafter the college discipline committee would say "Students if you don't obey the rules you will be charged with ragging offense and you will be a criminal thereafter. So better do what we tell you". Well all this is fine. But whats the future of a student who is a criminal for ragging offense? Colleges don't admit students with criminal charges. Neither Indian not abroad universities accept such grads. You cant apply for a passport nor get your visa stamped. You cant get a job neither in a private concern nor in a government office. Life, in short, is hell for these guys. But there is life as a politician because many criminals are politicians today. Jokes apart, if you are accusing somone for ragging offense please make sure they did it and is a punishable offense otherwise don't add one criminal more by just fooling around. Please distinguish between fun and offense. Don't gift him/her the "criminal" tag for the sake of a revenge or just to show your displeasure.

என்ன கொடுமை sir இது

Indian cricket team was basking in the warm days with money and have heard coins jingling and currency flying all round the year as if BCCI was a perennial source of revenue. But the hard days are on for the game in India now. The toughest thing for man now is to be the part of BCCI. If he is the selector read this as he is dead already. Have a look at the situation of the BCCI now. எப்படி இருன்த டீம் இப்படி ஆயிடிச்செய். Days for them have to be even meaner for the game to improve. Heights of achievement are reached only when man knows what abject poverty is.

Posters - a mess with information.

What are advertisements for? A fundamental question, i know. But the answer is very complex. The most simplest answers we can think of are to inform people of the features in the product, to increase sales volume, to get a place in the mind and heart of the customer so that he buys this brand when he thinks of this product. Competition has gone way too high and creativity is foraying unknown and unexpected levels with the advent of good softwares and good brains. But advertisements have created a negative impact also. People who have money publish ads in TVs during matches, movies and even during teary-soapy tele serials for the TRP ratings. But people who dont have money or who think their ads need to reach the common man go for the cheaper means of ads. POSTERS!!!. They are really messy and need a round of thinking sessions.
Posters are every where. A newly constructed flyover, the compound wall of a house, a tree, a electrical pole, a bus back and even a fencing... Huh is that enough of creativity in finding the places to stick the posters?? Well we need to regulate the places where posters can be put up. All those whose companies posters are struck in "Do not stick posters here" places should be heavily fined. So do we have to do-away-with the posters concept? No need not. We need to construct pretty huge walls in prominent places like the railway station, bus stand, few signals etc where the wall is divided into some 20 or 30 rectangles and each rectangle should be rented for a company or agency who would maintain the walls. Every poster including the movie posters would go there. No other place in the entire city the posters can be stuck. To put up your poster in these places you need to pay. Thus money is generated to the govt., and few people can be employed in the agencies also.
If the cost is high then the posters need to be converted into a phamplet and can be distributed along with news papers. I feel this is far better as the blank side of the phamplet can be used for some rough work by the children or in the grocery stores. As a final step, if not this they can be distributed in the streets as it is already done.
All these makes the city look better. All the welcome sign-posts, written for a politician, on the walls need to be removed. Instead of doing this they can send a postcard to every house saying their party men are coming to the city. Which makes more sense than the graffiti on the walls. They (graffiti) are the shabby face of the society today. Lets keep a city clean as cleanliness sponsors good health.

First Flight...

Just like many of you reading this I too had never experienced a flight journey before. But on May 9th I did break that status. Thanks to Air Deccan for making this possible by triggering a whole new era in the Indian aviation history by venturing into low cost carriers. I travelled from BLR-TVM (Bangalooru to Tiruvananthapuram).
I reached the airport quiet earlier than the check-in time. (Check in time is usually an hour ahead of the flight departure time). I went in and spoke to the Air Deccan counter person who told me to wait as the check-in time was no where near. So I just sat there looking at the airport and answering the Whys and Whats that were running in my head. When the check-in time was announced I jumped on my foot to make my debut journey.
When I showed my online-ticket (e-Ticket), that I got from Yatra, I was given the jerking reply which I had heard of in the recent times. "Your name is not in the passengers list!!!!!". No this should not be happening on my debut. I was pissed off to the core and was wondering what next??? No idea. I had to write a exam the next day at 9 am. I wanted to keep the calm on my face even though there was a heavy undercurrent of anger and questions going on my mind. The lady said please proceed to the counter no 3. I was skeptical about the proceedings. I went there. She said "Please proceed. You are given a ticket". I was relieved. I had to thank CNN-IBN for their operation cobra post which got me this ticket.
The take off was the best of all. You would be pushed back to your seats by inertia and it was very similar to the columbus upward movement. I hate columbus rides. But i liked this b'coz I paid for this. When we encountered clouds the plane would shake heavily. As few Air Deccan flights are external-blades-propelled they are not stable and the clouds are massive structures and are merciless . The plane moves up and down in a jolting fashion and in the high altitude you tend to get ear blockage and even a feeling to puke. My neighbour neatly dressed, with a french, right from the moment the plane took off he had his head spinning and took a few tablets and then was in total anguish with how the plane went.
The purpose for which I went in the plane was not even a bit satisfactorily completed. But I relished every bit of the plane journey. Even for the return I did not have my name in the passengers list. I knew this would happen so I was behind the Yatra people and screwed them how much I could and they sent me another ticket through sms when I was in the flight for the return journey.
Bangalore from the 13000 ft (the air hostess told me the altitude was 13000 ft) is really good. The long well-lit highways and the colorful buildings are really nice to look at. Enjoy every bit of your journey.

1. Check if your seat is available and you are in the passengers list.
2. Sit in a window seat otherwise you would miss a lot of excitement.

1. Do not read when the plane is in the air. You will already feel nauseated and doing this might aggravate that feeling.

P.S: Enjoy the feeling of flying and only in mid air you will realise the power of imagination. The imagination of Wright Brothers. All thanks to them.

Assasins - Truly Inspired...

I was wondering where do these guys get the guts and the idea to a homicide. It cant be in their bloods as they are not brought up that way. Its the society that imbibes these things into the killers who are otherwise perfectly normal to the naked eyes. The society is, to a greater extent , influenced by the media and the movies that set trends in all walks of the society. The recent Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung Hui is claimed to be inspired by the Korean made movie Old Boy. A scene from the movie.

This movie is claimed to be the best of its sort in the recent times. But do have any count of the number of dons who would have rose to fame after watching 'Nayakan'? No.
Were the Nithari case's accused also inspired by a movie? May be yes. There have been movies that have dealt with cannibalism. Like this

But what can be done when people derive inspiration from the imaginary and that too for the wrong reasons? Well it might not be inspiration also but an accidental co-incidence. For all those ill fated I pray for your souls to RIP.

India Divided by Religion = ???

Today morning as I was doing the usual round of news reading this one amused me. Although I could not think deeper into it or say my view on it I thought of recording it in my blog. This was the news.
All I could think of at that moment was "ஆயிரம் பெரியார் வந்தாலும் உங்கள திருத்த முடியாது டா" (Even if thousand Periyar comes, you people can never be corrected...)

Whom to cull?

We have been receiving and reading news in the past and the present about stray dogs mauling kids for unknown reasons. It is a deep sense of pain and agony when your kith or kin is mauled helplessly, brutally by the fit-for-nothing, eat-litter-sleep-breed stray dogs. Its really touching when we read news like that and see the photos of the parents weeping. The govt has issued a red alert and has ordered all such dogs culled. I was thinking if this is the right thing to do.
There is something called as the Food-chain. Human beings eat some animals and some animals eat human beings in turn. For the earth to exist this cycle has to go on. Had a lion killed a man it would not have been such a big hype, just because it was a dog its humiliating for the ill fated's family.
I have a question. **Just because maximum number of terrorists hunted down are muslims can we hunt down all the muslims or looking from another angle just because all the terrorists and the harm causing elements are human beings can we kill the entire race of humans around? Sounds wierd right?
How many politicians, national leaders, business men, big shots have cheated us, killed many and had zero feelings, just like these stray dogs, when a million of their country men were dying. How many have a gamut of cases, trials under them. What to do of them? Kill them? Cull them? Fire them? Chop a hand, leg and let them free? Who is going to monitor them?
Every single kid the stray dogs kill is reported a hundred times in all the papers but there have been hundreds of silent assassinations that have never been noticed.
These dogs need a life. Pity them. They need love and care. If you tell me they are not cared for and they have no space to live and they spoil the entire place they occupy then do one thing kill all the beggars and the abandoned children on the streets. We need to think again. Animals too have a life and we need to respect it. When we tread in to their world they fight back for their own space. Its obvious.
Cull the politicians, the beggars, the abandoned children and then point your fingers at the stray dogs.

P.S :
  • ** Not to offend muslims had i mentioned a point earlier in this blog.

I am not happy with the way the world cup has progressed. Its not for the fact that India is not in the Super 8. I felt India don't deserve a berth for their dismal performance against the roaring Lions and searing Tigers. My interest is elsewhere. Are the following said a disgrace to WC 2007?
First, Ricky Ponting's comments that minnows should never be a part of the world cup. Well I have a implication question for Ponting. If New Zealand defeated Aussies and Bangladesh defeated New Zealand does that mean Bangladesh has defeated Aussies??? Well maths says its right. But in a game of cricket any thing is quite possible. Would Aussies have ever dreamt that S.Africa will chase 434? Remember Ricky its cricket.
Next, Woolmer killed. For what? A bleak performance by the Pak? Huh, we need some sense and a brain transplant if necessary. Can Woolmer Bat, Bowl and Field for those eleven worthless baubles?
Last, the worst of all. I seriously cant digest the comment that Ireland won the Pak because of betting and it was a fixed match. I felt it was a marvelous achievement by the "so-called" minnows to be where they are now.
I know by the end of the world cup there would be many more such spiteful incidents. Who knows if this WC would be abandoned too.. Lets wait...

Mr, X, VIII std fail, Member of Parliament, India.

Who are our leaders today? are they qualified enough to take India to the next level, so called "Developed Nation"? Today, I was really irritated when all the illiterate ministers' names were popping up in my mind, for some unknown reasons. So i made a random check of the qulifications of our Hon'ble ministers and their work Ex and found the most impressive bio-data was of our Finance minister's, Prime Minister's and then was the IT Minister.
How good are the others? Are they educated enough to accept the jargons foreign officials throw at them? Are they masterminds to defeat the foreign officials in their grounds?
I just googled "Indian Ministry" to search for an answer.
To be honest I was impressed with the overall qualifications. Many were Law grads and few science. I don't know how true it is. But on the whole I feel even more perplexed now. How did railways perform so better? I had to tell an answer and console myself. "He understood the ground reality and the business as well"

Just take this poll and let me know what you feel.EducatedPolitics
