Where the CPM scores over the BJP and Congress…

If you thought only the Congress and BJP were singing their way to the 15th Lok Sabha election, then visit the CPI (M)’s official campaign website!
I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised after listening to the songs which are based on themes ranging from price rise and hunger to women’s reservation.
Which party gets my vote behind the Electronic Voting Machine remains a secret, but the CPM definitely gets my vote in the ‘Best campaign song’ category.

Jai Hind’s comments:

No doubt CPM has been innovative in creating their political campaigning material. I would call it ‘Good Marketing’ but unfortunately low on budget.
But that doesn’t ensure they would act for good without vested benefits after they are elected.

Should there be Death Penalty for Rapists??

ANOTHER RAPE incident has come in light in Delhi/NCR. The rape of MBA student in Noida just shows the helplessness of our legal system. I have always felt that the basic reason why the rapists are not afraid of committing the crime is the loopholes in our legal process. As it is our judiciary walksContinue reading “Should there be Death Penalty for Rapists??”

This is how the other half lives

Female shop assistants first made their appearance in Kurumbur bazaar after STD booths [phone booths] opened in this tiny town. Before their advent, one did not see girls behind shop counters here.

Punjab, Haryana finally wake up to female infanticide

THE HAND that rocks the cradle, rules the world! Marilyn Monroe was asked how does she feel being a part of a man’s world. She said as long as I am a woman in it, I don’t see a problem. Alas, if she were an Indian girl, her reply would have been different. Welcome toContinue reading “Punjab, Haryana finally wake up to female infanticide”

“Incredible India” notion is a SHAM
