Times of India vs The Hindu

The trending topic at the moment seems to be Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh‘s visit to the United States of America. The key reports of The Times of India seem to be this and this. The Hindu however reports this. Even the party scene was described this way… Well, I find it amusing that […]

What’s the hoopla about??…

It’s that time of the year. 26/11 is here.. Victims of the dastardly attack have moved on with life, but the political class and the media are milking it for all its worth. After all, the media doesn’t have to cook up any new stories for a fortnight or so, (not that they normally do […]

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

Hand of Cod….

Well, the 1st One-Day International was a practice match for Indians. After all, how could we […]

Happy Government to you……

On the eve of the  26/11 attacks, Maharashtra gets a state governement. The Democratic Front government finally gets sworn in. Most notable being that RR Patil gets back the Home Ministry portfolio, which he has lost the last time around, for making a foot-in-mouth remark. I am wondering what he did to get it? Attend […]

A New Take on Life….

Life, as envisioned by Woody Allen, the famed Hollywood Actor cum Director cum Screenwriter cum Comedian cum Musician cum Playwright: In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. […]
