No Opposition

After all the hard”ly” done work for the betterment of Indian society, and the very hard work in election campaign by all the parties, the day has shone when one political party will have a celebration party going on past midnight. A healthy scenario for a country like India “following democratic form of governance” would

The day I Vote Someone

That’s today. I am allowed to stay home to exercise my right to vote. I wake up early to avoid the late morning rush at the polling booth. I reach with my wife and kid(it’s a stroll for my kid. He’s spared of deciding whom to vote for another 17 years). For me it’s a

Corruption Shrugged

Who is John Galt? Seems like a very relevant question for current times. More so with all the work one Mr. Kejriwal and his band of common people have been doing for Indian politics currently.

Premji’s Take

Azim’ Premji is the chairman of Wipro. Read his take on the expenditures incurred by the Indian government for the CWG. This is one of the best article I have ever read in the TOI for a long time.

How to Save the Games

There is an article in The Times of India, 13th august edition about, how to save the messed up common wealth games. I didn’t read the article, because that’s hopeless. It was a known fact that our corrupt officials will surely do a messy business. But didn’t ever think that they would go so far
