Sensible, Balanced, and Man of all hours, P Chidambaram, puts healing touch to the millions of Cricket fans by saying it will be a disservice to cricket if Pakistanis are not included.

Basis of  Strain between IPL and Govt.

Let us go year back and try to figure out the relations which the IPL and its Franchises had with the Central Govt and its Home Minister P Chidambaram, Mr. Chidambaram was freshly moved from Finance Minister to Home, and Mr. Pranab Mukerjee, was given Finance.  The challenge before the govt. at that time in summer of 2009 was the General Elections in India, clubbed with Assembly Elections in some states.

Obama first State of Union Address, calls for unified effort to, counter US Problems.

January 28, 2010 Leave a comment

Obama, sticks to his campaign agenda, floats a bill for job, and extends taxcut to companies, encourages job in and for US job less.

Washington –  News. -Citing a “deficit of trust” in government by the American people, President Obama’s first State of the Union address urged Congress to erode the influence of special interests and work together to confront the nation’s most pressing problems. In the nationally televised speech Wednesday night to a joint session of Congress, Obama sought to reassure Americans angry and nervous about the pace of economic recovery that his government understood the challenges and would act boldly to meet them. The president offered populist proposals that some say could reconnect his administration with middle-class Americans, and he offered a plea to end the partisan stalemate in Washington and work for the common good. Americans “don’t understand why it seems like bad behavior on Wall Street is rewarded but hard work on Main Street isn’t. Or why Washington has been unable or unwilling to solve any of our problems,” Obama said. “They are tired of the partisanship and the shouting and the pettiness. They know we can’t afford it. Not now. ” Rather than fight “the same tired battles that have dominated Washington for decades,” Obama called for a new political climate of “common sense” approaches that invest in the American people without building “a mountain of debt.” Read more…

Sania prefers tennis to marriage. Hope she will strive again for her lost slot in World ranking.

For Sania Mirza it will focus Tennis, and Marriage is put on hold, may be.

2010 seems to be turning out to be quite a tough year for Sania Mirza both on and off the court. After failing to make a significant mark at the Australian Open, reports now suggest that Sania’s engagement to Mohammed Sohrab Mirza has been called off.

The duo who got engaged in July last year, reportedly realized that they were incompatible and agreed to go their separate ways.

The sources in family and friends confirm it was compatibility, issue between  Shorab and Sania, and nothing more.

This is sad and it hurts.  We know they were childhood friends and they knew each other very well, hope there could be a patchup between them.

They both can wait, and hold the marriage for few years, and think the proposal a afresh.

It will be hard on both the families, this was a well planned and well thought decission to go with an engangement and marriage.

They both should allow this thing to cool and allow a fresh thought in a couple of years, to revive the engangement and marriage once again.

That would be good for both.

For now Tennis can be her focus, and for Shorab his studies. Hope things will be fine again.  There need not be any more probing to this. It is her and his personnel matter, we need to wish them the best and advice caution.

Thousnads braved thick fog, to witness Republic Day Celebrations in Capital. 26th Jan 2010

 January 26 th.  Indian,  National Festival.

Republic Day is one of the greatest national celebrations observed throughout the country on January 26 every year. India became Republic on the 26th Jan, 1950. The country became a sovereign democratic republic with a written constitution and an elected parliament

At the time of independence, although India was under British rule, there were 565 Princely States, big and small, ruled by powerful sovereigns who were protected by treaties of alliance with the British Crown. Without bringing them together, the fundamental unity of the country was not possible. This unification was accomplished by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, whose statesmanship helped to integrate the country into one nation. In a little less than 2 years, all the princely States became a part of the Republic of India. Read more…

Salman Khan as Veer, in Veer

The Salman Khan’s  epic VEER, is by far among the biggest  and the  best, epics of all times, form Indian Cinema.  Veer is different for me, for its, display of how the British used the rajas and maharajas of the great Indian continent to better their own interests in India.

Veer also exposes the nexus between the few Rajas, Maharajas and British India Master. And how conveniently the Rajas,  accepted the pleasures extended by the British White masters, sharing of power with the British to  hold on  to their  pockets of Raj, to be called as Rajas and Maharajas. For them there fake pride and riches was more important than the aspirations of millions of Indians and the Praja in there region.
