Saif Ali Khan evicted forcibly from the VIP Lounge at Lucknow Airport

Saif Ali Khan had a spat with security personnel at the Lucknow Airport when he was not willing to leave the VIP lounge where he was not authorized to enter. He had visited the city to promote his upcoming movie ‘Bullet Raja’. Ultimately,he had to leave the lounge and join the commoners’ zone after the senior officials intervened and asked him to be evicted out.

Well, is he yet not a VIP ? Bollywood actors of his status are generally given VIP treatment throughout the nation. Aren’t they ? Moreover he is the son of  a Nawab-Nawab Pataudi and now a  Nawab himself by default!  😉 . And to add on it happened at Lucknow Airport, of all ? It is a city of Nawabs and Kebabs !! 😀 Is that how they treat a Nawab ? 🙂

UNHRC: India votes against Sri Lanka.Anti-Sri Lanka resolution passed

The US resolution against Sri Lanka over alleged human rights violations has been passed at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva with 25 countries, including India,favouring the resolution while 13 against(included Pakistan) and 8 abstained from voting (includes Japan) !

While,Sri Lanka claims the war to finish Tamil terrorism and issues related to it are its internal matters and that US has no rights to intervene, India’s voting against Sri Lanka is bound to tense relation with its small yet strategically placed neighbour(which shares healthy relation with China and Pakistan) . Interestingly,Pakistan voted in favour of Sri Lanka.

Beni Prasad regrets terrorist remark on Mulayam after Sonia Mulayam meet

Beni Prasad Verma , the much controversial Union Steel Minister,who once belonged to the SP(now in Congress) had previously accused SP supremo ,Mulayam Singh of  having ‘terrorist connections’ in a rally. This had created a big chaos in the House as well where Mulayam and Beni,attacked each other verbally. Beni did not seem being sorry about his statement while SP demanded his resignation from his post as a compensation of their supremo’s insult from the government. Meanwhile,DMK(an ally of current government) quit the government over the Sri Lanka issue which could cripple the government if SP (which is supporting the UPA government from outside) takes its hands off due to Beni’s statement !

While Beni Prasad went to meet Manmohan Singh , the Prime Minister, Sonia met Mulayam Singh (probably to convince him to calm down on Beni Prasad’s issue). Sooner than later, Beni Prasad stated he regretted if his remarks (on Mulayam) hurt sentiments and that he apologizes for the same . 😀

Well, this is what we call politics . Nobody is a permanent friend or foe !  😀

It is good news for Indian cricket fans(like myself) to see  promising youngsters like Pujara and Shikhar , takeover responsibility of seniors like Yuvraj and Dhoni and super-seniors like legendary Tendulkar and Sehwag ! 😀

SP distributes laptops to students with Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Wallpapers

Samajwadi Party completed its 1 year of government in Uttar Pradesh and keeping his promise , Chief Minister , Akhilesh Yadav has started distributing HP laptops to students of the state. The interesting thing about these laptops is all of them have a hard-to-change Wallpaper with SP supremo,Mulayam Singh and CM Akhilesh’s snap. 😀

The funniest part is , many students have ended up crashing or technically spoiling the laptop , in order to change the wallpaper with CM’s and SP supremo’s  snap ! However,the service to these laptops is absolutely free from HP .

Noteworthy information about these laptops are :

Recipients will soon be warned by HP not to tamper with the BIOS to remove the politicians’ photos- they will stay on screen for five seconds.(You just cannot help it !) 😀

Do not think its a gift from the government.The laptop is government property and selling it, misusing it or destroying it can lead to legal consequences.(Its more to remind you that its the SP which availed the laptop to you for use only. Be thankful) 😀

PM's stern warning to Italy to send accused marines back

Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh, has sent a strong warning to Italy to send the two Italian marines back to India who are facing charges of killing two Indian fishermen . With orders from Supreme Court of India the two marines were allowed to go back to Italy for attending elections and were scheduled to be coming back within 22nd of March’13. While the Italian Foreign Ministry has declared that the marines won’t be sent back to India for trial, all the pre-assurance from the officials of the country to the Supreme Court of India stood void. With the opposition targeting the government for being ‘soft’ on the issue because it has to do with Italy , PM Singh probably had to warn Italy of ‘consequences’ if the marines are not returned !

Looks like,the issue is bound to take up a big shape soon. Till then India should be celebrating that our PM has broken his silence at last and its a clear message -” Don’t Angry Me” .  🙂

Italian Marines accused of killing Kerala fishermen not to return for trial

Released after 105 days in judicial custody under strict bail conditions and assurances from the Italian Government, the two marines of an Italian Navy Vessel Protection Detachment (VPD) accused for killing two Indian fishermen from Kerala,mistaking them as pirates,are not going to come back to India for the court trial as announced by the Italian Foreign Ministry. 

They were released to travel to Italy in February, this year, to vote in national elections and now Italy has put on stake the diplomatic relationship with India by dishonouring their commitment to Indian Supreme Court of  letting the accused marines back to India for trial.

The Indian Foreign Ministry looks speechless( as mostly expected) and the Indian government has stated the act is ‘not acceptable'(as usual and as if saying this would make any difference to Italy) . The opposition has been accusing the Government of being ‘soft’ on the issue. Why ?  🙂

Italy not to send back marines to India charged for Kerela fishermen murder

While, some may argue,it is a shameful act on part of Italy to falsify its own assurances but it also speaks about the kind of importance they give to their citizens and for which they have gone to the extent of giving forged assurances and risking diplomatic relation with a country they have been friendly with since decades. Two Indian lives were taken by two Italians and it would really be important to know if our administrators are as bothered about us (be it,after our death) as much the Italian Government is bothered about their lives !

Or Like the opposition,even you accuse the Indian government of being ‘soft’ on the issue ?  😉

Just out of the topic , the Indian government could win awards for using two words most frequently, to address any issue- We Condemn (say …if there is a terror attack ) and the second is -Its Unacceptable (say…if Pakistan denies its hand in terror attacks ) . Can we have some serious actions against nations taking India so lightly ? Please ?

 

Modi served legal notice for calling PM Night Watchman

A Congress leader from Bangalore has sent a legal notice to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi asking him to apologise and withdraw his remarks calling Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh a “night watchman” of the Gandhi family !

😀  Just a thought !

What will happen at Congress Senior leader,Digvijay Singh’s office if he starts getting legal notices for passing remarks.He never spares passing remarks (derogatory,mostly,not always 😀 ) anyone who dares standing against Congress ? 😀  He would become an undisputed back to back record holder of most number of legal notices for passing remarks . 🙂
