RTI activist beaten up for trying to unearth corruption in MNREGA.

Right To Information But No Right To Complain ?

In the ICU at a Jaipur hospital lies a 65-year-old RTI applicant,Dudhram from Bikaner, Rajasthan  with multiple fractures. He was beten up by the supporters and relatives of Current Sarpanch of Somalsar Village in his attempt to unearth the corruption in MNREGA work. Amazingly, there have been no arrests so far even after  FIR has been lodged against 10 people invloved in the crime.The Right to Information activist, Dudhram had complained to the Anti Corruption Bureau about the allocation of Rs 4 crore for clearing sand and that led to the incident.

Well, what is the point of Right To Information Act if pointing out follies and intentional-manupulation by the administration would lead to hospitalization while the accused would not be held for the crime ?

India wins 2nd ODI of Commonwealth Series by 6 wickets , against Sri Lanka!

 

The Funny Winning Run Scored by India!

India registers its first win in the Commonwealth Tri-Series against Sri Lanka. In the 46th over , bowled by Mathews of Sri Lanka Ashwin hit the winning shot which was ideally going to make him lose his wicket as it was high up in the air, very close to the pitch, towards the off-sdie and had at least two Sri Lankan players beneath it . It was considerably a very easy high-catch for any player. However, there was a twist in the tale as both took similar decision. Malinga decided to leave the ball for Tharanga and vice versa and the ball fell in between while Ashwin and Jadeja completed the winning run. Ashwin could not believe the rescue like everyone watching the match and had a astonished smile on his face. Well, rarely do we get to see these childish follies in International matches. All in all, it was a happy and funny climax of the match for Indian Cricket fans.

Karnataka Ministers caught watching objectionable content on mobile, while in the Assembly!

 

In yet another shocking incident Karnataka Ministers were accused. It has been reported that two of  the  Ministers were found watching obscene content on their mobile phones and this all happened  inside the State Assembly. The two ministers are Karnataka Co-operation Minister Laxman Savadi and Karnataka Women and Child Welfare Minister CC Patil. Clarifying their stands the Ministers said they were trying to find out the meaning of a Rave Party!

They could have witnessed it live on the St.Mary’s Island !

Well,did they not get any better time to search for the meaning of Rave Party?  If the politicians of the nation do not respect the House, how do they expect us to think positive about them and feel secure under their regime ? One of them being Women and Child Welfare Minister is all the more eye-raising. The speaker of the House assured legal measures would be taken against the Ministers but the point is what do they go to the Assembly for? Reminds of College Boys who would get suspended for surfing the net over the phone while lecturer is taking classes !

Cricket Australia fined for Advertising ‘Kamla Pasand’!

Kamla Pasand labelled boundary ropes may attract a fine of upto $66000 on Cricket Australia by the Australian Federal Health Department. The advertisment of “Chaini” which is fancy-packed spit(tobacco) were visible in almost all the matches. The advertisment is a breach of 1992 Tobacco Advertising Ban Law. Kamla Pasand being a company which is also into manufacturing of chewing-tobacco hence legally the adverts should not have been entertained by Cricket Australia.

As per reports these ads were removed in the first test match between India and Australia following complaints about the ad against the 1992 tobacco advertising ban law. But they were back after the Indian High Commission reportedly assured the cricket board that the product was mouth-wash.
The most shocking part is when asked by Cricket Australia the ad was  allegedly translated in English as “Kamla likes fragrant Chaini mouth freshener”.

Well, Law breakers and manupulators find their ways out in the country , some way or the other but this time the limit was extended to a foreign country and at the end it is Cricket Australia which is likely to suffer by paying the penalty fee.

‘Spring Zouk 2012’ – Party on St.Mary’s Island shamed the BJP government and Karnataka!

Rave Party on Cocunut Island(St.Mary’s Island), Karnataka?

The recent party organised by the Udupi district administration and the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) to promote global tourism, has embarrassed the ruling BJP and the state.  The Udupi district which is a stronghold of the BJP and a well-known pilgrimage centre for the Sri Krishna temple and the St.Mary’s Island, 6kms from Maple Beach. The beach where the ‘Spring Zouk 2012’ was organized by KSTDC in association with district administration and 3W concepts is considered to have been named by Vasco Da Gama, St. Mary Island, offering thanks to her for his accomplishments. The island comprising of 4 small islands is considered sacred by the minorities in the area and is also called coconut island.

Around 600 couples, mostly international tourists, attended the party and one of them was taped in camera while having sex in public. Reports indicate they were not the only one performing this act in public.Liquor and allegedly drugs were also available in the party. It was claimed as a proper rave party with hundreds of tents erected for the guests and booze and drugs in abundance.

Chief Minister D. V. Sadananda Gowda, on 6th of February 2012, ordered a probe into the matter and assured strict actions after the opposition party Congress, conducted a protest-march in Udipi last Sunday, blaming the government’s denial and inaction on the matter. They claimed religious sentiments of Christians were hurt with the island witnessing rave party. Gowda initially defended the three-day ‘international festival’. But he had to order a probe after a mobile phone clippings of at least one couple having sex during the party, reached local TV channels. The government and administration claims that the clipping may not be real as state cops were appointed there on duty while the party was taking place and no such incident was reported.

Well, BJP with RSS and Bajrang Dal being its allies has thrashed Indian couples in the past ,be it Valentine’s Day and many other occasions, claiming to protect the Hindu culture. The same organizations and their people eloped while such incidents took place in BJP ruled state. Does it not matter to the self-proclaiming saviours of Hindu culture to protest this incident, taking place in religiously important district for Hindus, if not the island?

Nigerian Students face Racial – Discrimination in Kochi While Residents accuse Nudity in Public!

 

Februaury 6th 2012 – Nigerian students, residing in Kochi, for their higher studies complained about racial discrimination by the city people who have asked Nigerians to vacate the rented house. 50 students sponsored by the Nigerian government, for a special training programme were allotted block No 2 of the NRI Silicon Heights residential society in Kochi.
However, the residents are complaining that a Nigerian student unzipped his pants in public, in front of two school going girls. The allegations were denied by the students and they felt its their skin which has attracted the controversy. Even the school is supporting their foreign students on the matter . A local, Executive Director with Euro Tech , claims that this is a pure case of racial discrimination against the Nigerians. He too is a Kerelite but blames the residents, who he heard yelling slogans against the students, addressing them as monkeys and asking them to go back!

Well, Nigerian nationals have spread in many parts of the country and have been accepted well in cities like Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kolkata. These nationals need not be students necessarily and it has been rare that they offend the Indian society with their behaviour or act. Considering the incident being true where one student dared to harass school-girls by un-zipping his pants, it’s that particular student who should be held accountable and not the community as a whole. Indians who themselves have been discriminated on racial grounds by whites , arabs and even blacks, in many countries, have never retaliated to foreign guests on racial grounds. That is not our culture.
It is understood if a White guy finds a Black guy completely different or vice – versa but not us. India is not only a blend of culture and religion it is also a blend of skin colours where some Indians can win competitions of being darker than Nigerians while some can compete with the white-skinned Americans, as well.

 

Brett Lee fractures toe

 

How Brett Lee may have fractured his toe in the 2nd Twenty20 between India and Australia ?

Australian Fast – Bowler, Brett Lee is out of Commonwealth Bank Series due to broken foot during 2nd Twenty20 at the MCG on Friday, 3rd February’2012. Lee is expected to be out for four to six weeks due to the fracture of the small toe. He has been replaced by Ben Hilfenhaus who had given trouble to Indian batsmen in the Test Series.

Recalling about the 2nd Twenty20 Match between Australia and India where India recorded its first win, Brett Lee had used his foot to stop a full-connect, straight shot from Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s bat. It was Lee who was bowling to Dhoni and a straight shot hit by Dhoni was intervened by Lee, immediately after which he was noticed shaking his foot, out of pain. Although he completed his last over , Lee’s pain was visible to anyone witnessing the match on their televisions. It may be the impact of the ball which hit directly on his foot that led to the fracture. Australia lost the match, yet they undoubtedly gave a tough fight till the last over of the match.
