Run, MLC, Run! After an arrest order is issued, the infamous JD(U) Member of the Legislative Council (MLC) goes into hiding. (Read More)
First, the son kills an innocent youth and flees from the scene. Next, she hides him from Law Enforcement Officials (LEOs), lies to them about not knowing his whereabouts. Then, they find out that she is in cahoots with her absconding son and is charged with accessory to crime. Finally, she gets suspended from the party and is on the run, now. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”—Lord Acton.
I am surprised that legal action is being taken against the perpetrators and collaborators of this crime. Laws are generally for the little people; the elites, the connected and the politicians can do whatever pleases them. Salman Khan, anybody?
In Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case, the driver of the car came forward to take the blame 13 years after the incident had occurred. How do you make an innocent person come forward to take the blame for a crime you had committed? You shell out a lot of dough; you promise to take care of their family members and promise to get him out in a few years. I believe the Mafia were and the Mexican drug cartels are famous for following this strategy to protect the accused.
Money or currency, rather, is a powerful motivator. In the case of Rakesh Ranjan Yadav, aka Rocky, don’t be surprised if he goes scot-free because the driver of the car or the bodyguard of that dude comes forward to claim that it was one of them who had shot the youth in self-defence. How will the accused make one of those guys do that? Yes, you guessed it right! Currency and lots of currency!
Wall of fame! Meet India’s unsung heroes. Here is a list of some of the most educated and least educated “polytickcians” in India. (Read More)
So, you do know how the “polytickcians” and their cohorts are going to spin this right? One of the parties will say, “Look, we are the party of the intellectuals. We know what is right for India, and we have the brainpower to take the country forward. Vote for us, and we will transform the nation.” The other party will say, “Look, we are the party of the common people; we identify with them, and share their dreams, aspirations and wants. We may not have the brainpower, but we do have people-power, and that is most important in a democracy. Vote for us, and we will transform the nation.”
A word of advice: You are screwed no matter whom you vote for. “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”—Emma Goldman. Now, don’t ask me who “they” is. If you do, you are going to the back of the class.
H1B workers displacing local IT workers. I surely can understand why the local IT workers are ‘angry as hell’ over this news. (Read More)
Today, Indian IT workers are comparatively inexpensive; hence, everything is flowing to India. Tomorrow, it will be cheaper to get the work done in some other country, and the work will leave the Indian shores in a hurry. Everybody is expendable at some point or the other!
Fort McMurray wild-fire
There are six videos in a series from this user—3 from the front dash cam and 3 from the rear—please watch all of them to understand the destructive power of this wild-fire. The wrath of Mother Nature is terrifying. Here’s to hoping that the life of the affected returns to normal soon!
How to cut a pineapple?
Just awesome. I do wonder how long it took him to master this art. How many trials and errors was involved in perfecting this. The only thing that pisses me about the video is the orientation. Many people don’t seem to know or understand that landscape is the preferred orientation for videography.
