Saddam shouldnt be hanged!!


Consider this....

India has been attacked by USA on charges of violation of human rights and having WMD which will be investigated?

All the countries in the security council were pushed in to helping the USA into dethroning the government,the erstwhile Indian leadership is in jail and camps run by USA.

A new constitution has been drafted and a new government is being elected under the supervision of USA.election results are out a new government is sworn in but the administration remains in USA hands.The first thing the new establishment did was to search for Harendra Hodi the former Cm of Gujrat and put him behind bars.
The new court charged him with murder of the people in his state during riots.The court gives a speedy verdict "hang to Death".

The convict has no right to appeal as its a hostile government.

Now

think this keeping Saddam in mind????

Right to information in Bihar.


Right to information is a real good act and has served its purpose in fixing the accountability and availing the vital information to masses.

Mr Nitish kumar the CM of Bihar wants to take it further by setting up a call centre for Bihari citizen to ask for desired information over phone!

The illiterate acn talk in a regional dialect the call center staff will formulate the asked question in application form and forward it to the concerned department!Once the department responds the message will be passed on to the complainant at cost of Rs 10.

This system after implementation Can do wonders as a farmer in My village Jagdishpur can ask for the amount allocated to the development of roads and its uses??The Netas and Babus will have very tough act to follow then.Implemented well it will turn into empowerment of electorate and shine as a marvel of "Democracy at its best".Kudos.

The Indo Us Nuke Deal.


The Indo Us Nuclear deal has generated a lot of heated debate with very opinionated views.

Here is my take.

1.Does India need a deal with US.

Yes it does because after the 1974 Nuke test USA imposed sanctions on us thus stopping the transfer of Nuke Technology as well as high end technology in all spheres.Thus limiting the scope of Indo Us cooperation to the minimum.

2.Does it mean India will lose its foreign policy in hands of US?

We have matured from the cold war era poor developing country to a thriving young confident power in international sphere.So the notion that it will be detrimental to our foreign policy is casting aspersions on the negotiating skills of our Mandarins in the Foreign ministry and the collective wisdom of Indian think tank.

3.India looses its Right to Nuke testing with the deal?

Yes it does but the test done earlier has given enough evidence of our capabilities and no nation today can do a test without disturbing the status quo.More over India has offer a self restricting moratorium on further nuke testing in talks with Pakistan.

4.India will be dependent on Us for energy need on Nuke power?

Yes it will be but one got to understand that its too costly and complex to do on own moreover even Russia our old ally has joined the club of Nuclear energy suppliers under Us leadership.So if we don't get it from US we don't get it at all.

Remember a deal with US will give us approval to import reactors as big as 1500Megawatt as compared to 450 megawatts of Indigenous production.

So its a good deal in entirety and the best option available to us.

Orkut.

Orkut was quietly launched on January 22, 2004 by the search company Google. Orkut Büyükkökten, a Turkish software engineer, developed Orkut as an independent project while working at Google (required by its policy). Some discomfort with this exists among users and potential users of Orkut, especially since Google's other noteworthy product of 2004, the Web-based email client Gmail, had servers scan emails for keywords in order to deliver advertisements targeted at them, which sparked an idea that Google was "reading your e-mail".
While previously working for Affinity Engines, he had developed a similar system, InCircle, intended for use by university alumni groups. In late June 2004, Affinity Engines filed suit against Google, claiming that Büyükkökten and Google based Orkut on inCircle code. The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in Orkut that also exist in InCircle.
Originally, the Orkut community was felt to be elite, because its membership was by invitation only. At the end of July 2004 Orkut surpassed the 1,000,000 member mark, and at the end of September it surpassed the 2,000,000 mark. As of December 6, 2006, the number of members was over 35.2 million.
Orkut's use as a social tool is complex, because various people frequently try to add strangers to their own pool of friends, often just to increase the number indicating their number of friends next to their name in their profile. Many "add-me" communities exist, solely for this purpose. A large number of bogus, cloned, fake, invisible and "orphaned" profiles also exist.

Revolution called ORKUT.

Its been two months since i am on Orkut and its been fresh reviving and a life worth living.I have revived friendship with 19 people with whom i had lost touch due to geographical consideration.
The wonderful discovery of my beloved Chachu who is a renowned chef in London working for Grand Chef Gordon Ramsay is a classic example of what technology can do.We were not in touch since years now we Scrap so regularly.
My bunch of school friends have been traced and identified its become a vibrant place where we communicate.Thanks Google...

India wins.

Now that India has won the test with remarkable difference and grace i as a genuine sports lover urge the so called fans who were burning posters of players to sit down and think before rejoicing,After all its the same team.
Its the immaturity of fans to desert the team in bad times and start praying when they win..
The brand value of cricketers will again be restored till the next debacle!!!!

Hero Honda Glamour.

Saw TVC of Hero Honda Glamour with Yuvraj singh featuring as a Average charlie???
Now it doesn't impress me if you choose Yuvraj as brand ambassador and then show him in poor light.The story about the bike being a true babe catcher has been done to death, why repeat it?
The same story idea was done in a stylish way in Apache girl and Hunk add.So its good to play safe with story idea but not at the cost of creativity...

DTH.

The Indian DTH industry is in a state of evolution with players like Zee, Tata,Doordarshan,and sun network of Maran family.

The early starters were Zee group followed by DD, Sun,Tata.Reliance (ADAG) of Anil Ambani is about to enter the fray.The DTH sector is a highly regulated one with DOT, TRAI,and cultural ministry playing the unwanted guardian angel.

The players have the capabilities to bring international channels and content but are not allowed so.The industry waits for fresh up linking guidelines to be issued this month.My hope is that it should give Customers more choice and options.

For now i am using Tata sky in Mumbai and Dish tv at home in Jagdishpur Pusa..

Princess street.

I was at Princess street at Kalbadevi at south Mumbai for my sales closing on 30/11/2006.Its such an old area that it reminds u of older Mumbai so are the traders also all in there prime with limited risk taking and safe in approach towards trade unlike the suburbs.I say it with my experience that people are carrying forward a legacy with little growth or none its time to move to a diff model and give the place a face lift..
