Because rather than big events, we have focused on big patterns. And while we disagree on a lot many things here – political, cultural, developmental, social, and personal, I hope we all agree that Kerala got it mostly right in the past 55 years. Because Kerala is the No.1 state in India, here we go, […]
Boring isn’t just the only problem but he clearly eluded the core issues of public distribution, price rise, and made a quarter-hearted plea to the naxals – which forget the naxals, cannot even bring my angry four year old cousin to table for talks.
It is more saddening to see that Tharoor is not exiting on his own, but being sacked around accusations of corruption. If he had resigned in protest against “the red tape”, or “allocation of funds to Kerala”, or even “ludicrous nature of Indian foreign policy” it would have been a worth while tenure. I do […]

(link to Full article below) Do you remember the final scene in Wolfgang Petersen’s classic Air Force One, […]
Every morning Keshav gives me something to smile about, but this morning when Ratan’s five year war and marketing blitz reaches its conclusion, Surendran(thats how I read it) took a nice page out of Laxman. courtesy: The Hindu And people who follow the stupid channel make cartoons out of themselves.

She can’t be bargained with. She can’t be reasoned with. She doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop, ever. Despite Obama winning Iowa yesterday, Tom Maguire feels Hillary will be tough to defeat. Hillary is arguably the most eligible candidate for presidency, as she puts it “a President from […]
With the Presidential race for 2008 getting heated up , Miami Caucuses yesterday decided on a bipartisan ticket for 2008.
