Human Resources Destruction (HRD) Minister

Dear Arjun Singh,

You have amply displayed your abilities in your tenure at a useless ministry. Wish you could learn a thing or two from Lalu Prasad Yadav (yeah such is the situation!). If you cannot improve anything, at least dont go about destryoing what exists.

In your completely moronic ways, you fought hard for a few hundred seats in top iconic institutes of higher education in India. Ostensibly for the neglected sections of the society. But, you forgot that this very section of the society seeks better Primary Education (in crores not few hundred), better HealthCare, better Roads, and Electricity. Give them the basics, the rest will be taken care of - people will feel proud of who they become - instead of depending forever on doles dished out to them. But hell NO! Why solve problems, when you can create more! Why provide primary education when you can create sensation with Nonsense and Sycophancy - of which you have been accused of by your own political masters as well.

Its India's great tragedy, that Education and HRD Ministries have been occupied by jokers of the highest order in recent decades. The first thing that Education Ministers in India usually do is start revising history text books without applying any brains, and the first thing that HRD Ministers in India do is to create problems wherever they can. We are ashamed, no not-of-you, but of the fact that people like you are tolerated in our country.

God Save India from the clutches of Ugly Politicians.
Take Leave.

Ms Pratibha Patil - Flop Show

Ms Pratibha Patil's first foreign trip as President of India - turns out a damp squib. Not Surprising many would say - Parliamentarians around the world do a background check perhaps on visiting dignitaries - and decide to play accordingly!

The Brazilian Parlimentarians did not find it worthwhile to attend Parliament when she went to address them. Hardly 15 turned up from a total strength of 90+. And her speech at Mexican Parlimant? Well that was cancelled after some MPs walked out over some local issue. No it did not end there, she also forgot to salute Indian Mexican flags during the guard of honor parade.

How we miss Abdul Kalam! He is apparently in great demand around the world - and is a regular invitee at conferences where hundreds turn up to listen to him.

Olympics 2008

There is much news about which celebrity is running with the Olympic Torch or not. And so on and so forth. Has anyone asked this basic question: What will be the medals tally of India at Olympics 2008? In all likelihood it will be 0 gold, 0 silver, 0 bronze ~ or near about.

The media as usual is at the forefront of displaying its ignorance and interest on the subject. Has anyone even bothered to cover what sports streams India will participate in, who are the likely participants, what their preparation is. We don't want hype, but we want those medals.

India (does not) need Reservations

We urgently need reservations? If so, here's the wish list.
  • The Olympic Council, should allocate One-Fifth of all Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to India; we are One-Fifth humanity after all. And historically India was enslaved by Britishers therefore not allowing indian sports to develop to its potential. No, we don't need better sports facilities, we dont need good sports administrators (No Way!) - we need the medals reserved for us. Come on guys, don't start the argument of merit. Olympics are not about who can run or swim the fastest. It is a great world event, and everything should be distributed equally.
  • United Nations should ensure that one-fifth of all the worlds trade be handled in India. No, we dont need better economy, we dont need good manufacturing industries, or excellent agriculture (No Way!). We want the WTO to get One-Fifth of all trade to india as a rule. India was a rich and bright nation in the past, but outside people came and took away what we had. Those historical events need to be balance out right now.
  • USA, is doing grave injustice to us. It has the best educational institutes of the world, where the most competent study and teach and do research. This is not fair. One-Fifth of all the seats in top educational institutes (particularly Harvard and Stanford) should be reserved for Indians (appropriate provisions for sub-reservations within it should be made too). No, we don't want better educational institutes in our country, neither do we want to improve our educational system so that we are a confident, educated nation. We want those seats that others are having elsewhere.

God save my country from the clutches of ugly Politicians.

Background Music in News

Have you noticed how background music is added to news these days? So, you have visuals of a bunch of hooligans breaking window panes, and beating up people - you will have a filmi music added to the visuals to sensationalize it. In any case India may be one of the worst places on earth to watch news anyway - what with commercial breaks that are longer than the news itself. And little or no original research - just show sensational visuals and talk about them with some experts. And these experts are 'regulars'.


People Stare. Is this unique to the indian sub-continent? In the animal world staring at one another is considered a very aggressive behavior. In most western countries people avoid eye-contact unless necessary, and if an eye-contact is made, they acknowledge your presence usually by a smile or even a simple Hi.

Rahul Gandhi

is sleeping in villages to garner votes. Typical of indian politicians. If he got Water, Electricity, Roads to villages - he would garner zillion votes. But then that involves hard work!
