News clips

So, me back to working full swing. Full swing as in work-check email-check news-stare at the monitor-check email-news-work!!
I have become a complusive email checker and a news ticker. And this does not mean, I get emails quite a lot but atleast a lot of things (good and bad) are happening in the world to comment upon.
  • Pardoning Afzal??
Okay, here is the guy who was the mastermind of the Dec 2001 parliament attack and a known terrorist. He took main part in the plan of action, knew what they were aiming at, and understood that if they succeed in the attack what will happen to the country. Comeon, had the 6 or so head constables/inspectors on patrol not fight these terrorists, who knows our parliament building would have been history now and I vaguely recollect some of our ministers were inside the building that time. So with this in mind, think of the magnitude of the plot and its after effects. And Afzal has been convicted by the Supreme Court, he has told his relatives that he will not file for pardon, and yet there is an opinion-building going on to pardon him. J&K Chief Minister publicly goes on record saying he should be pardoned, does he give a reason - NO.
I feel this is total b.s. to even talk about pardoning his acts.
Take a look at what All India Anti-Terror Chairman says on this count.

Anyways, moving on...
  • Chickening out?
Today''s Hindu quotes..Anbumani Ramadoss ascertaining Chikungunya was not the primary reason for any death in the country so far. He goes on to announce - "In almost all the cases involving deaths-of-chikungunya patients, the primary reasons were different". And this is just 2 days after the Kerala CM publicly accepting that Chikungunya has resulted in 60 odd deaths in the state.

So, who is right?, Who cares...

  • Here is a Winner...
To finish off in a lighter vein, Laloo Prasad announced the opening of a Gharib Rath, a low-cost fully A/C train between North Bihar and Amritsar. It seems a lot of Bihari people usually go to Amritsar for picking up a decent living and hence the decision on the route. After the flagging-off, he announces all the raliway-development work in Bihar, new broad-gauge connectivity will be completed before 2009. He quips, "after all everyone knows the Lok Sabha election will be held in 2009."
LOL :) That is an honest assessment, thats two things rolled into one - a clever remark to make people feel good and also make them laugh.
No wonder, he charmed & ruled Bihar for 15 long yearss...

Pardoning Afzal is such a dumb idea! I can't believe people are speaking up for him as though he is a martyr or sth - damn sickening :-(!
