Commonwealth Shame 2010!

Image
Why the obvious was not perceived as the obvious? After the biggest scam to hit the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi the responsibility was still left to the pack of thieves! The chief of thieves carried on boasting, carried on the Baton from place to place wasting more and more of taxpayers' money! Corruption should also have some honesty! You make money okay, but do the work! At least! Just what's going on? With hardly ten days left we are still talking of preparation! India boasts of her hospitality, but athletes are withdrawing day after day, teams are delaying arrivals and countries are issuing advisories. Honorable Prime Minister has intervened now and the chief of thieves has been sidelined. But why now? That should have happened long long back. Huge wastage of taxpayers' money in a country of poverty stricken illiterate millions and with inflation raging at 15%+ still.

The superstar of the millennium is shining bright, as ever. From hair oil to cricket to politics the name of Amitabh Bachchan has become synonymous with success.

The Monsoon is most likely to stay for the whole month of September. There is a  mood of celebration though in some areas excessive rainfall has threatened to cause damage to selected crops. Mumbai, suffering from 30% water cut since times immemorial, is now free of any cuts. The most enjoyable part of the Monsoon this time is that the rainfall had been spread uniformly. Nature did not finish its quota furiously in just one day or in few days and so Mumbai was free of major breakdowns. Celebrations, of course! The festival season is just about to begin! The 11 day mega Ganesh Festival starts on Friday night with idols being installed and Ganesh Chaturthi Puja on Saturday morning. Ramzan month is culminating with Id on Friday too. Then comes the nine-day Navratri ushering in the fortnight of goddess worshipping-the shakti cult
