This is the seventh season of Indian Premier League (IPL) and this time it is played in 2 halves. First half is being played in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and second half in India. This is the second time IPL has traveled outside India. IPL as a culture is growing but I feel this is not cricket anymore.
For a person like me, who doesn’t know how to drive a car could be really troublesome. One of recent incidents with “one-of-major” radio taxi player in Delhi lead me to think if Radio Taxis are really helpful or just white noise?
You are a Delhite or even Indian, fed up with corruption and hoping Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will root out corruption, well I’ve a gift for you: a big “F*ck You!”
At stroke of midnight, another year will be history.
For Delhi, a party less than a year old trumped the ruling party for 15 years which was reduced to ashes but still it formed the Government (which is a different story). Some turning point decisions over Nirbhaya and then there was one over LGBT. Controversies still rampant and then someone won Bigg Boss. Mass destruction by floods in Uttarakhand to disaster prevention in Odisha. We have started our run to the Mars yet we struggle with things here on Earth. Scams which ruled headlines last year were overshadowed by the hopes that something better is coming up.
With this hope we bid adieu to the year 2013 and welcome the New Year 2014. Wishing everyone a healthy, wealthy, safe, sound, prosperous New Year.

The next I heard was when IT was booming (it could be still) but then Hyderabad was asked to be Cyberabad and not proposed Capital of Telanagana (may be I never read it before). Below is my take on India (ever) being a super power. Rupee is falling day by day and in newspaper we read a standard template “Rupee falls a new low. Drops … in a day”. Government may be doing something about it but what common public hears is a new policy, a new corruption, a new issue to fight over.
Latest news of today is India is getting its 29th state. India continues to be divided again and again on basis of language which was started by British colonizers. 66 years after Independence, we still gained anything? Continue reading
