Ayodhya verdict – India loses

Ayodhya verdict – India loses

September 24th, 2010 i.e. tomorrow, is all set to mark a new chapter in Indian history. Unless the plea to defer the judgment becomes successful, the verdict to one of the longest running legal battles will finally be delivered. Whatever the verdict tomorrow, whoever wins the case, Lord Ram or Allah, India’s secular values will lose. I was baffled yesterday when I read in the newspaper, about the sort of security arrangements that have been put … Read entire article »

Terror Stirkes India again

I just switched on the TV at 12:30AM today to see the repeat of the Big Fight. But instead, there was a headline saying “Terror strikes Pune”. I was shocked. I immediately picked up phone, didn’t care that it was late in the night and started calling everyone I knew in Pune, to make sure they are all fine. Luckily they all were ok. I was relieved, but I wasn’t happy at all. 9 people had lost their lives and there was no way, I would have been happy about that. 14 months of calm and another terror attack. I was going through the press briefing by the Home Minister today and he says this wasn’t an intelligence failure as they knew the area was on the hit list. The German … Read entire article »

Now a seperate state for Cyberabad?

Yes you heard it right. Now that a state of Telangana seems almost a reality, there is a fresh demand for the formation of a separate state of Cyberabad to be carved out of Hyderabad. The newly formed Cyberabad Rashtra Samiti has called a band, dates for which depend on their respective manager approvals. The so called Chief Minister of the so called state of Andhra Pradesh has urged CRS to withdraw their band call; else strict action will be taken against them. In an interview to sensible-bakwas.com, the president of CRS was asked about what he had to say about the CM’s appeal to the party, he simply responded by laughing. Here is an excerpt from the interview: Sesible-bakwas: Sir what is the rationale behind this particular demand CRS: “Even though Cyberabad … Read entire article »

Seperate Telangana: Is it the right solution?

Till 12 days back, nobody outside Andhra Pradesh had even heard about Telangana and now the whole country seems to curious to know what’s all this about. Since the past 12 days life in Hyderabad has virtually come to a standstill. Petrol pumps had been closed; schools and colleges had been shut down. So for all the people wondering what the fuss is all about, here are the facts. History behind Telangana:  Andhra Pradesh as we know it today (or probably as we knew it till yesterday) was originally made of 3 parts namely Andhra, Telangana and Rayalseema. Since states were to be formed on linguistic lines after independence the three regions were merged into one state called Andhra Pradesh. People of Telangana were never happy with the decision. They feared all … Read entire article »

Mixing politics and sports – A bad recipe?

April 1st this year unlike previous years was pretty dull for me, nobody played any pranks on anybody and even i really didn’t have the enthusiasm to play any pranks this year. But there was 1 man who made the government of the world’s largest democracy look like a total fool. That my friends was Baichung Bhutia, the face of Indian football, by saying no to carrying the Olympic torch when it passes India on April the 17th as a mark of protest for the Tibetan cause, when our government chose go overboard in pleasing the Chinese. It made me feel so proud!! But is it really good to mix politics and sports? There was talk of boycotting the Olympics this year, is it a viable solution? Well if history were … Read entire article »

Quotas – A really bad word for some and a boon for others

Hello ppl,For all the people who read my blog and are wondering y have I decided to write about it right now, well it’s after reading my very good friend Varun Reddy’s blog post on quotas for minorities that I started thinking about this. You can read his blog at http://varunslife.blogspot.com/2007/05/minority-quota-is-it-necessary.html So here I am with my second post on another topic that I feel very strongly about. Well to start off I was like any other guy who was an IIM aspirant and my enemy No. 1 was enemy was Arjun Singh who probably decreased my chances of getting into an IIM even further by announcing quotas for the OBCs. I had pretty much the same thoughts going in my head as many others I knew had when this whole controversy … Read entire article »

“Peace” a word that makes me wonder… is it the biggest illusion?

Hello people!!As my first post i decided to talk bout a subject that’s made me wonder the most. Just today i was reading an article in The Hindu about the conflict in Sri Lanka. 20 years and the battle doesn’t seem to have any peace in sight. The interesting part of the history of the Sri Lankan conflict is its virtually the same as in Palestine, Chechnya, Kashmir, Dafur and many many other such places where one set of people feel totally oppressed and feel separation is the only way out. Why talk of conflicts around the world isn’t this the reason why couple get divorced too?This isn’t something that’s new to mankind is it? The stronger one has historically oppressed the weaker one. The classic big brother bullying the … Read entire article »
