Times Of India- 28th December 2009

I chanced upon this article online. The student was “removed” from the school, not from the school rolls. Haven’t they heard of words like “expelled”, “rusticated”? Sheesh, doesn’t ToI hire people who have some basic knowledge of English?

The great Delhi Police…..

The “wonderful and truly capable” Delhi Police just got busted. Their vain attempts to implicate some individual in a murder case got shredded away in the Delhi High Court. The basic summary is as follows: A couple (husband with blood group A, and the wife with blood group B) gets killed, the investigating police plant […]

Where is the Gore??…

The hottest thing nowadays, is the United Nations Climate Change Conference. This conference will supposedly harbor in a new age, where nations will pollute lesser i.e. reduce emissions- the Greenhouse ones not this kind of emissions. 😀 But a notable absentee at this conference will be Al Gore (of the An Inconvenient Truth fame). He […]

25 Years on…..

25 years on after The Bhopal Gas Tragedy, the victims and their relatives are still looking for justice, while the CEO at the time is probably sipping margaritas at a beach. How in the world, can a society be selective in the dispensation of justice? Compare this with the Ambani vs Ambani battle which has […]

NREGA- With the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi

With the latest plans to radically overhaul NREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) has a lot of politicians excited without any valid reason.

The CAT’s out of the box… And it stinks….

The IIM Management launched the online CAT test this year amidst great hoopla. Well Prometric (which supposedly conducts GRE and TOEFL) got the contract and everybody was happy. Well, when the CAT 2009 arrived, and the reality struck. Well, a report here is amusing, especially the response from Prometric. It is too good to be […]

An Indian in the Forbes List….

Well, news just in… An Indian in the Forbes list of World’s 10 Most Outrageous CEOs as The Mint newspaper reports here, and The Hindu reports here. Good ol’ Ramalinga Raju. He surely has created a legacy….

RIL RIG??…

For all who think that the stock market is the place for earning an honest living, here’s an article. SEBI has accused RIL of rigging the stock price of RPL. This doesn’t come as a shock, even though it’s from the highest echelon of this corporatocracy-cum-thugocracy called India

A Foreign Affairs CM??

The “honourable” CM of Tamil Nadu, M. Karunanidhi‘s take on the LTTE strife in Sri Lanka, as reported by The Hindu. Is he planning to become the chief strategist for the LTTE??…. I find it ridiculous, that politicians in India involve themselves with issues abroad, especially when they have their hands full with issues of […]

A Religion called Cricket??…

It’s being often said here , “Cricket is a religion in India”, and that set me thinking. The just-concluded India-Australia One-Day International series could very well have been the summary of the “faith” of the religious Indian cricket fans. Well, the 1st One-Day International was a practice match for Indians. After all, how could we […]
