Rave or Not Rave

So much for the protests against Mr. Dhoble. Now that we know that the drugs were flowing freely, what do the liberal protesting glitteratti have to say?

Kerala & the Dried Up Coke

Most of the keralites, like the rest of the Indians, would'nt hesitate to empty a coke bottle down their throats especially now in the summers. However the the relation between the "Coke People" and kerala has been uneasy.

First of all whats most unsettling was that the multinational cola giant was given the required permission to open a bottling plant in Palakkad (an Eastern kerala district and a bastion of communism) by none other than the communists themselves. What merit they saw in permitting the same by which they effectively broke their anti multinational and anti capitalistic stance , need to be questioned.

Then as the agitations began on account of the huge water consumptions by the coke plant leading to lowering of water table in the surrounding areas causing droughts etc, the government resumed their anti-multinational , anti-exploitation stance.

Also there were accusations of the coke being contaminated with pescticides (obviously that had to happen as the ground water itself had such contaminations, but then the multinationals should have purified the same as they had international standards to maintain)

After all these accusations , counter accusations , the company closing down etc - the kerala government is now claiming a loss of around Rs.200 crores and the committee of the local people
are claiming damages of around Rs.4500 crore.

I have something to say here - "Please refer to the claims settled in case of a colossal tragedy like the Bhopal Gas Tragedy and then make the tall claims that you are making .It may be more worthwhile to make claims against the state government which granted the permission. After all can the permission givers be left scot free while penalising the permission seekers?"

Penniless Olympic Campaign

No money, No Uniforms and thus our athletes fall back on our national sport - begging.
That's what our sports associations and administrations have trained them for.

The fall back option may give them some solace by way of fund raisers.

Feel like sending some Indian sports officials to the winter olympics devoid of their clothes so that they can watch the games sitting bare assed on the snow.

A Fast Woman

She comes from the 'Pardah Lands'.
But unveiled a fast one the other day.

From behind their shrouds
Came her countrmen proud

This is the rousing reception Naseem Hamid got for her dream run in SAF games.
Atlast Pakistan has done something without the guns and it took a woman to show the way too.
And as always it takes a woman to break through her veil.

A Chest Full Of Ideas

Firstly, I had this hobby of staring at chests (with gender bias ofcourse)
That hooked me on to something else - staring at all printed chests (no gender bias here).
My occupation led me to the below mentioned discoveries.

Alas, I cannot pride myself as a pioneer on my Columbus style adventures - for I have seen many others of my clan straining their eyes in the process of similar discoveries.

Here I go :

"Printed on a female T-shirt - "Iam good in Bed - I can sleep for hours"
(for a split second I had those wonderful illusions until I fell down with a thud)

Again on the same place , the very same gender - "Whats inside is much better than what's seen outside - My heart"
(I didn't salivate this time and being more circumspect managed to avoid the thud)

"Power of Observation is good - But watch were you are going"
(that belonged to a crowd puller and all the columbuses managed to return with a sheepish grin)

"All Cover-Ups are not always bad"
(Very true, or else people are sure to go under the vehicle tyres, wide eyed!)

With monsoon coming things have become a bit difficult, between managing my umbrella and surveying the available reading material. But for the sake of you all , I promise I shall continue the good work.
