Both are at present residents of government hospitals and are brought to the Assembly in ambulances.While Ansari is booked for murder, Mishra for attacking a BSP leader and while the country thinks they are serving their punishments, in reality,they got the liberty to attend yesterday’s grand lunch with Pranab Mukherjee.

Abu Jundal with many alias names was arrested last week,after being deported from Saudi Arabia at the Delhi Airport.Surely this is a major breakthrough for India as he is one of those operators who is said, was sitting at some Karachi Headquarters of ISI, guiding terrorists who had intruded Mumbai in Nov 2008! He is also said to have coached Pakistan based terrorists, Hindi, to accomplish the terror mission! Jundal who originally belongs to India has been making Headlines almost every second hour since he is caught – What kind of guy he was as a kid ?, His mother says he is innocent !,He has Pakistani Passport as well ! ,where is the LeT,the Terror outfit, plans to bomb next ! Pakistan’s denial of being involved in terror attack after Abu Jundal confessed help from ISI and the list just continues ….
How do these ‘Breaking News’ help now ? He has already done what he had to, in 2008 and no matter how many proofs India, Pakistan will never accept involvement in Mumbai Terror Attacks! By terming these things Breaking News , how long will Media and News Channels waste our time ? How does it matter, what kind of child a terrorist was ? Has he done something heroic ? What is the point of highlighting his family’s point of view who considered him dead while he went missing since 6 years ? How can the family say he is innocent when for 6 years the family did not know about his whereabouts? if these terrorists continue being Breaking News, no big deal, if kids at our homes may start considering terrorists , some super heroes who are so popular !:)
Since Jayalalithaa’s AIADMK party took over the government of Tamil Nadu from DMK, many senior DMK leaders and hundreds of party cadre have been put behind bars on land grab charges which DMK claims, is made-up while the ruling party says is based on genuine complaints.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav has proposed that MLAs who do not have a car of their own should be allowed to buy a car within Rs 20 lakhs, using state funds, for survey work in their constituencies.After the 5 year term the car could be returned to the government or be bought by the MLA at a depreciated value.Most of the MLAs were happy the way they are ! Some expressed ideas of spending the money on development work of their constituencies rather than buying cars out of taxpayer’s money.
Well, it sounds astonishing that our politicians are bothered about the public and not themselves and that too in a state like Uttar Pradesh where the last Chief Minister,Mayawati, had spent lakhs and crores of state-fund to build her own and party symbol’s(elephant) monuments ,all over the state capital! 🙂
Spot fixing in cricket is as sinful as murdering the thrill of the sport, at least for cricket lovers and India where the sport is a religion in itself, spot fixing by players is all the more sinful.
BCCI is the richest Cricket Board of the World and undoubtedly cricket players who are almost Gods are one of the richest professionals in the country. Unlimited money and untamed fame are the special features of cricket in India and hence competition is high to be a part of Team India and moreover to sustain there. With the introduction of new game format twenty-20 which is the shortest form of the sport, new talents are also getting opportunity to not only show their skill but also make money and fame. Spot-fixing is the hazardous bi-product which a short-cut way of making money for players ! Where the world around bets on each and every ball delivered and runs scored or wickets taken on them , it is the same one ball which can fetch a player a hefty amount if he does what has been told to him by the organizer of illegitimate bets ! Think, if you know what is going to be the result of the game between two equally capable teams and to top it , if you know the game almost ball by ball !
A sting operation by news channel revealed 2 young players f domestic level were willing to be paid money for doing what the journalist(portraying as organizer of illegitimate betting) wanted them to, on the field ! The players, T. Sudhindra and Shalabh Srivastava are the sufferers of greed. Sudhindra has been barred to play cricket for life as he accepted bribe for spot-fixing for domestic level match while Srivastava has been barred for 5 years for agreeing to such deal!
