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…

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.
