The VIP syndrome
It was just as I thought it would be. Amidst all the rage over frisking of our former president, A P J Abdul Kalam himself never registered a protest. From whatever I have known of him through papers, one minor brush with him at the Ahmedabad airport following his visit to Gujarat after the 2002Continue reading “The VIP syndrome”
Ten Years Later: The War India Forgot!
It used to be an eerie landmark; the tree I saw everyday in the summer of 1999, blackened and ripped by incessant bombing at the old brigade headquarters, is green again. But much else has withered. The legacy of the Kargil war, one of the toughest wars of modern military history — far tougher thanContinue reading “Ten Years Later: The War India Forgot!”
The Indian Political System – As I See it
” This Politician Doesn’t Deserve My Vote ”
” All politician suck big time. – (PJ) What ? ”
” All are corrupt , inefficient and India will always remain this way – Lets Shift to America , UK etc. ”
During the past few years I have met many people who are part of the system, and my opinion about this whole system and setup has undergone a sea change. I was always of opinion that the best way to solve India’s problems is to make all the politician stand in a line and then shoot some of them, so that the rest of them start working properly. Though I still feel that it could be one of the solutions but I have also realized that leaders are nothing but a true reflection of the people they represent (Majority obviously) or as they say in Hindi , Jaisi Praja – Waisa Raja.

If you don’t, then forContinue reading “Kargil Martyr’s family still waiting for fulfillment of Government’s promise”

Lets’ not Forget Them
It’s that time of the year again. Every July since the year 2000, the Indian media and the Army in that order, celebrates the eviction of Pakistani intruders from the forbidding heights of Drass and Batalik (and not Kargil, as we all in the media keep referring to for some completely unfathomable reason). The Army,Continue reading “Lets’ not Forget Them”
Mayawati: Vision of Development and Handbag!
MAYAWATI’S STATUE-BUILDING spree has been termed as a demonstration of her narcissism. Remember that Uttar Pradesh is one of the most underdeveloped states in the country. In the last assembly elections, the people of Uttar Pradesh had given their Behenji an entire term to rule them. They believed in her “Sarv Jan Hitay Sarv JanContinue reading “Mayawati: Vision of Development and Handbag!”
