A National Shame:


Indian Armed Forces convoy was attacked by Civilian & Political Hooligans. Shocking pictures of this act appeared all over the Indian Press on Sunday, 3rd May 2009. I could not stop asking myself if such a degenerated, uneducated and misguided Indian society really needs to be protected and is worth the Blood and Sweat of brave soldiers and Jawaans of our Armed forces?

Are these pictures not a mockery of our democratic rights and freedom that we have grown so used to and is taken for granted? These pictures are proof enough that we have crossed the line dividing the cherishing, protecting and enjoying the democratic freedom over to abusing it. I see no difference between this and 26/11 Mumbai – in fact this is even worse than a 26/11 as the enemy is among ourselves and the attack is from within.

There can be no justification whatsoever for such an act. Nothing will happen and nobody will ever get punished for this act. Indian judiciary will sleep over it for years and then one morning handout a historic judgement to let these guys go out with a token punishment. Unless, the nation calls for a total & complete boycott and a ban on the political organisations behind such an act - not just the frontline goondas and hooligans – they are only the messengers. Unless, the leaders of these organisations are punished by the Indian voter to lose their deposits, never ever to come back asking for votes.

As for these hooligans, they should be forced to wear the Indian uniform and packed off to be air dropped in Af-Pak regions to fight and save their own lives, for wild animals should be left where they belong. They have to earn their freedom and survival and only then will they know the very meaning and importance of it - and also learn to respect the very people who provide them with Free & Sovereign India.

100,000 KMs on Tata Aria ...

Before I talk about the Tata Aria and my experience of 100,000 KM journey with it, it would be necessary to go back in time and rewind to discuss how I arrived at this mean machine.

Earlier, I drove Tata Safari, about 120,000 KMs. Let us not try to look for any reasons into my fascination with Tata. To put it simple and straight - even today, I am a big fan of Tata Safari. 
Moreover, with a large family of Five to drive along, it turned out to be more of a necessity than anything else. Two very significant members of our family needed fairly large space. Zara & Marshal - the wonderful lovely couple of German Shepherd. They both loved being driven around and would jump onto the boot as soon as the rear door is opened; and Zara, would refuse to come out as she wouldn't like to be left behind.
Furthermore, being a family of ‘Nature and Wildlife’ enthusiasts, any opportunity of a small get-away and we prefer to look for an off-road destination.

Lastly, this perennial problem of b…

AWOL = Absent Without Official Leave.
The Wikipedia page has since been updated to "delete" AWOL and insert the adjective “Prominent” before Journalist, by none other than the "Half-Colonel-Turned-Journo" himself, as per the latest screenshot below:


This little introduction was needed just to establish & understand the true profile of Half-Colonel-Turned-Journo : Ajai Shukla.

We will be discussing the “expert opinions” of Ajai Shukla, published on two different media platforms as follows:

Nero’s Guests, the age of inequality: A Review

The reason why I have taken up to write a review of Nero’s Guests is because it needs to be widely circulated, written and talked about, as much as possible; so that everyone gets to see it, those who still do not get the time to watch it, may further need to be motivated to do so, and only then it will reach out to the wider audience and be able to make a real impact.
The mainstream media today is totally degenerated and corrupted as it does not cover anything that is not “breaking news” or that is not considered “glamorous” enough to catch eye balls. For this obvious reason, Nero’s Guests has been completely ignored by the mainstream media (both print & electronic) and is not given its due space & visibility.
The subject itself is not new to any of us and it has become a part of our daily lives - mere statistics. It is about the severe agrarian crisis that the country is faced with, as a result of which farmers are still committing suicide and as many as 200,000 farmers have a…
