Inspiring India’s youth

Striking a conversation with taxi drivers is a great way to get a sense of ground realities. Last year, before the elections in Delhi, I had a whole host of auto drivers say to me that they support the Aam Aadmi party in Delhi while one taxi driver, a staunch BJP supporter was confident that AAP would win not more than 3-4 seats! Like most people these individuals carry their own biases. Nevertheless, their socio-economic background and their everyday interaction ...

Rise above the Din

It is universally accepted that politics is "messy". Getting a bill passed by the Indian Parliament is ultimately a political issue. All the political parties and their constituencies need to agree on the various aspects of any bill. The Lokpal bill is an unprecedented bill in Indian history for many reasons. For the first time, we have a bill that is being openly discussed in the public domain -- on the Internet, at social events, in yoga groups, and even ...

Too much happening…

Boy, its been a hectic week of news. In other words, too much happening to even formulate an opinion! Meanwhile, there are scores of theories on every issue, as always, and thanks to the www we have easy access to so many of them.Carly ($21.4 M richer overnight, so its hard to say "poor Carly") was fired, Bloglines (the founder has done it again, he last sold the groups company to yahoo) was acquired by Ask Jeeves, Ash was on ...

From here and there

Some interesting links I have come across lately. Interesting report about growth of blogs in China. Amazing how a blog launched after the election has gained so much momentum and continues to do so. Classic example of cashing in on a defeat. Great idea nevertheless! Nice short quiz to know more about yourself. And finally, some funny junk mail (someone creative has some time on their hands!) NIIT : Not ...

Six months of Blogging…..and to be continued

Saturday, October 30th, 2004 No Comments
I have been blogging for close to 6 months now and I must admit that lately it has become hard to keep up. As Mr. Bush would say, "It's hard!" There has been so much going on, finding time for blogging has been difficult. The truth though is that there has not been a single day when I have not thought about blogging. Hope to be back with more frequent posts in the not too distant future. Meanwhile, boy, there has ...

Why?

If you observe, you'll find a number of cops hanging around perfectly safe areas in the US. For instance, drive down Castro Street in Mountain View, California once, and you'll find at least a couple of cops driving by. I agree there is a police station not far from there, but why do these folks have to hang out in such a safe places? Don't we distribute our cops so areas with a higher crime rates have more cops deployed? ...
