I wonder, will changing the signboards to Marathi in Mumbai, help anyone?
May be not. It was successful in Karnataka because Kannada had it's own 'lipi'
But Marathi is written in devnagari.
So, in turn Raj Thackeray's move will help even the illiterate migrants from UP and Bihar.
Now they can read any signboard!

Music has become a remedy for the ever-frustrating traffic woes.

Never know which terrorist is using our identity to shoot a terror-mail!

Wonder why India witnessed so much success in events like Boxing, Wrestling and Shooting!
Any Bollywood influence?
It feels so good to make cartoons on Indian sports other than cricket!
Cricket and Bollywood sells everywhere in India. But I hope after the Olympics, people will start talking about other sports too!

Central Govt employees get a huge hike in their salaries, which is long due, in comparison to the private sector which has been seeing huge growth over the last few years.
But I wonder what if the govt takes into account the huge bribes some of the govt babus earn every month! 21% hike will look like a peanut in comparison!

Funny, how all the state govts, who are least connected with Mr. Bindra, are rushing to announce lakhs of rupees as reward! Everyone wants a piece of limelight. Is this the way to promote/encourage sports in India? Definately, this is not the right way to aim for Olmpics gold.
No point in riding on, an already successful sportsperson. Back the talented sports person who're struggling financially; who are uncertain about their career and future!
BMC (Mumbai's civil governing authority), has been famous for numerous goof-ups and famous funny decisions. The latest law is to fine anyone who feeds a stray dog! I wish they make a law to fine anybody who feed the govt babus, police...etc with bribes!
Suddenly people realised that there's more to sporting life than just cricket.
Golden boy Bindra made it all possible with his Olympics gold.
This nation of cricket-crazy billion people will need more than one Bindra to erase the obsession, that is called CRICKET!

As farmers commit suicide unable to repay the loan they have taken from the money-lenders, soon we'll see days when urban population will suffer immensely not being able to repay the home loans. Soon, politicians will announce home-loan waiver schemes for the urban crowd!

We definately have a craze for ranking.
The latest ranking of World's costliest streets has fascinated all of us.
But I wonder how this ranking is done! Do they take into account the poverty on the streets also?

To abort or not to abort is the question the Court is asking!
Whose right is it to decide the fate of the unborn child?
Is it Court's or Parents'?
If you succeed to save some money after the highest rate of inflation, escalating home loan interest rates etc etc, where will you invest your savings?
Which is the safest option, with most of the investment options are dangerous enough to eat into your principal amount?

There are politicians who don't hezitate to create controversies even when there's none, just to stay in the news. Raj Thackeray, who made a promising debut in the political arena, seems to be one of them. If he feels film world makes fun of the Maharashtrian characters, then he should watch Dada Khondke movies first. He never hezitated to make us laugh by creating all kinds of characters. I wonder, how authentic it would be to show a North Indian bai in a Mumbai scene!
Bollywood is one of the most cosmopolitan and secular work places in India. And some people are hell bent on making divisions there, just for their petty selfish intentions!
In an effort to make the game of cricket, more tech-friendly, ICC is killing the charm of a wonderful game. The latest effort is through the umpire review system. May be, this new thing will work well during the controversial runouts or catches. But it's too much to expect the technology to be a perfect judge of LBW decisions.
And we're killing the human element in umpiring.
