Twitter Tharoor now part of cattle class politicians


Finally Tharoor is neither new breed young politician with a difference nor is he a intelligent techno politician.
What a fool he is to send text messages to Modi to influence IPL auction? What a complete moron he is to indirectly take bribe through his future to-be-wife.

India is a place where majority of people doesn’t believe in team work. That is the reason, why Modi thinks he is alone responsible for IPL success and hence he should alone reap the benefits. So, he ran the IPL empire as if he is the boss with no second authority in sight. He became so greedy that he chooses who should own the IPL franchise and who should own the media distribution rights.

Government should investigate the flow of illegal money into the country. This money is causing real estate prices to rise unimaginably high making home ownership costly for common man.  This illegal money is the reason, why IPL franchise ownership is running into millions of dollars with no known sources of profitability. It appears as if super rich are playing games among themselves and for their own entertainment.

Every bidder past, present or future should submit last 10 years of tax filings and show proof of the money that whatever they are putting in for IPL is earned lawfully.

Show modi and tharoor the exit door, so they can be on Twitter full time amusing the followers.

Sania going to be second wife of a liar and that too to a Pakistani?

I fail to understand the rationale and urge of Sania mirza to get married to Shoab malik.
This person has proven to be a liar and also in the midst of match fixing.  Sania being on top in India and getting married to someone at the bottom in Pakistan is really confusing.

I am guessing that Sania will call off her wedding to Shoab, if they are not already Wedded in Dubai as per some news publications.

Silly Serve from Sania Mirza

Sania Mirza’s decision to marry Shoab malik and Mirza family’s press statements therafter proves that the whole affair was not properly planned. Now that this is in public domain, there are only few options left for Sania mirza.

I agree that the Sania’s  decision to marry a Pakistani cricketer is personal and i respect that. However what is not personal is her decision to still represent India. Hey, leave that to my personal opinion.

It appears that their strategy to marry Pakistani cricketer and to convince Indians by making statements that she will hold Indian passport and still represent India internationally has completely gone wrong.

First question before going into details is, why even settle in Dubai after marriage, why not in India? Anyways, Shoab is participating in IPL and he has no future in Pakistan while Sania has great future in India with or without Tennis. Why not both of them make India their home?

This is my guess: Sania’s intention of holding Indian passport and represent India is not out of concern for Indian fans, but out of concern that she will loose future advertising contracts and will be breaking many of the existing contracts.
If she represents Pakistan or Dubai, she will get none of those lucrative deals as she will not have million’s of Indian fans.

My sincere advise to Sania in particular and Mirzas in general is to go take the poison pill of trusting the Pakistani batsman and entering into a wedlock.
I personally don’t approve of her representing India, when Pakistan is sponsoring terrorism in India.

Students agitating for seperate Telangana are missing a point

Students and everybody who counts themselves as youth has a stake in separate Telangana, but they are not the only stakeholders. Students should back off from confrontational mindset and go back to their academics and let other opinions also count.

There are no saner voices among Student bodies agitating for seperate Telangana. Politicians are simply using them as tissue paper to meet  their greedy ends. Separate Telangana agitation is much bigger cause which needs consensus and accumulation of opinions of different sections of our society (off course Student opinion is one of them).

However several student bodies are misbehaving and are trying to take the whole agitation into their hands. They are trying to shoot their opinion to the front by dwarfing every other opinion. This is completely wrong and not the correct approach. Students should register opinions and let it reach the correct channels and go about their studies.

They have no business in hitting the road every other day calling bandh and destroying public property and hitting people & representatives with counter opinions. This is not democracy.

It is also important to note that most of the agitators are not real students. They have been heavily influenced by political youth wings and also Maoists for their selfish ends.

I definitely don’t want a 19 year old Yadiah to die for a cause that affects me. I want mature people and responsible people to take this up and discuss it in all angles. I want this agitation to end with a resolution to increased spending in rural Telangana regions and rightful share of resources and funds.

Haqqani terror network is Pakistan’s bargaining chip

The scant talk of War on terrorism by Obama in his State of Union address and few unofficial debates of end game in Afghanistan has prompted Pakistani general Kayani to come out in open officially and state their intention of mediating between West and Afghanistan Taliban (actually Pakistan supported Haqqani network which is attacking Nato and American troops in Afghanistan).

It appears that there is an official admission on the side of Pakistan of their influence with Haqqani’s terror network which they want to use to pursue a strategic depth in Afghanistan. This dreaded network is what Pakistan wants to be part of future government setup in Afghanistan.  This centrally and squarely put the entire blame on Pakistan for supporting terrorism in the region. A Similar admission by ex President Musharraf related to Kashmiri terrorists and their influence with them has proven beyond doubt that Pakistan as a state is problem and not a key to solution.

Given this background, how West can justify their exit from Afghanistan and declare victory by agreeing to share power with Haqqani’s network in Afghanistan is to be seen. This will be the biggest joke of this century, if West did agree to this formula.

Or, something else could be cooking behind the scenes. By floating these rumours of West’s exit, they wanted to see Pakistan’s reactions and exactly that is what happened. Pakistan now stands nakedly open and they will be in much more trouble, if West doesn’t back their idea of accommodation of Haqqani’s network in Afghanistan.

Anyway’s Kayani’s statement’s has put Pakistan in the center of storm by acknowledging their influence with dreaded terror network. They have to live with the consequences.

Let us see what happens.

Indian bloggism better than Indian journalism

I have no doubt in my mind that Indian bloggers are in much better shape than Indian journalists in shaping this nation. Most of Indian journalists are short sighted, jingoists and don’t see the larger picture in their reporting or in the topic they are reporting on. Indian journalists are trigger happy and often confuse their readers by mixing personal opinion and the news item in the same article. There are many many incidents where Indian media has grossly misled the nation on many important issues.

Indian media has not done a good job in researching the attacks on Indians in Australia before carrying several articles and have given racial color to each and every incident. Indian media has not done thorough job in recent IPL fiasco and have confused the Indian and Pakistani public by falsely reporting Governmental influence in final decision making. Indian media has done huge disservice by not carrying correct opinions/editorials on US India civil nuclear deal.
On one side i am very unhappy with the Indian journalism and on the other side, i am worried as to how this irresponsible lot of journalists can shape Indian minds going forward.

Hope we see better media both in print and electronic in future.

Confusion around not picking Pakistani players by IPL franchises

Let us be clear on few fronts before we start abusing each other and adding to the existing confusion.
a) IPL franchises are private enterprises. These teams pick and choose players for their benefit.
b) If a Pakistani player is picked, but is not allowed to play for that franchise as per his contract for multitude of reasons like
a) Pakistan not allowing players to go to India to play
b) Indian government not giving visas for Pakistan players
c) Security threats to Pakistani players (because Shive Sena in Mumbai constantly issues threats)

then these IPL franchises will loose money. No body on earth will like to loose money.

If the current episode shouldn’t repeat in future then this IPL business needs to be streamlined.  Indian government should guarantee the security of all players and these modlities can be worked out.  All the governments from where these players are coming to play as part of IPL, should allow their cricketers to leave the country with any ban or restrictions.
ICC should also be consulted, so that IPL games and international match dates don’t coincide causing problems for the IPL players.

If Shahrukh khan says that Pakistani players should have been picked, then he should also answer as to why his franchise didn’t pick the Pakistani players?

India asks US not to punish Satyam. But why?

India’s Sebi has asked US equivalent SEC not to punish Satyam and there are press reports that the same request was forwarded at political level to US.  This looks very absurd and so out of place on many fronts.

Why are Sebi and Indian politicians  taking special interests in this case and  pleading before foreign entities?
Even if we are taking it up, i want to know in what capacity are we talking to US? Why should SEC and US political leadership should listen to SEBI and Indian political leadership requests? Even if they throw their ears, what can they do?

This also raises one more question. Did SEBI go easy on Satyam fraud investigation? Did we compromise on getting to the bottom of this case? Are we protecting Ramalinga Raju or are we protecting politicians who played hand in gloves with Satyam entity? I was very hopeful of getting to know the complete details, if it landed in the hands investigators in US and UK. As i trust the foreign entities more than ours. There is more transparency in the system of SEC than that exists in SEBI. There is more to this case and we are shielding powerful political leaders.

I also see no point in SEBI’s request. Already shareholders of Satyam have lost their lifetime investments. The shareholders now are new and they bought the remainder of Satyam knowing fully well the conditions of Satyam. So, these shareholders are going to pay the price for the risk they have taken.

Mahindra has bought Satyam with full knowledge of liabilities of Satyam fraud both in India and abroad. There are shareholders in India, US and UK. All are interested in getting to the bottom of this fraud. Satyam fraud has shaken all of us to the core. This should not happen again and only way to prevent this from happening is conducting thorough investigation and punishing the culprits.

Shashi Tharoor crying like chicken on Twitter

Shashi tharoor found an easy way out in registering his protest and displeassure on new visa guidelines. He thought it was simple to post 140 charcaters on twitter instead of clarifying his views on new visa guidelines which could have taken hours or even days to fight it out with other members in his department.

Advise to Minister of state for external affairs, Shahsi tharoor: Tax payers are paying you monthly wages and reimbursing your five star hotel stays not to tweet, but to team up with other members in your team and reason out with them in shaping the guidelines and making our country safe. We want you to work hard in making your views clear to them and contribute your mite to the security of this nation and its progress. We don’t like it, when you put your cry baby face on twitter and garner sympathy in front of twitter crowd who may not have all the gory details you have. Be a man and defend your views within the 4 walls of the ministry or else ressign and tweet full time. If people with powers are showing helplessness, impatience and are irresponsibly fighting it out in the open, what kind of confidence are you giving us?
It is we, who should tweet and blog because thats what we are good at doing. We have given you privillege to do the the stuff we can’t.

Non partisan view on Telangana is the only way out

Congress party’s age old partisan politics and “what is in it for me” attitude has done greater damage for itself in dealing with Telangana issue. Sonia Gandhi has lost credibility in her knee jerk reaction to KCR’s hunger strike and announcement of separate telangana overnight and that day being her birthday also added to the controversy.

It is time now to start afresh consultations with opposition parties, people and come to consensus on the agitation of Telanganites. It is time to review the allegations of water allocations, fund allocations and influx of people from other regions into Telangana and rendering localites jobless. It is time to take this agitation away from street goondas and real estate brokers who have used every trick in the book to showcause what they can do.

Separate Telangana or United Andhra Pradesh, following things are must for review
1) Fresh look at all water projects that were planned but not implemented, planned but left half done.
2) Fresh look at allocation of funds
3) Rename the state to Telugu pradesh, if United state is still an option.
4) Creating leaders from Telangana region, by giving opportunity to localites for various positions within the government.
5) Creation of educational infrastructure in Telangan region
6) Spending additional 10% of all tax money generated from Hyderabad for Telangana upliftment.
