Women activists in Pune are ready to follow footsteps of China’s ‘Occupy Men’s Toilet’ drive in case the newly elected 78 women candidates in Pune Municipal Corporation also fail to do anything about lack of sanitation facilities for women!
Well, India which has witnessed immense growth of women in all fields, including education,jobs and business.They are walking hand in hand and shoulder with shoulder with men and it is time that their basic needs to be taken into consideration.Sanitation is a basic problem for women in India who need to travel out of home. Well, these are some real serious topics the Senas and Parishad activists be helping to get sorted out rather than chasing movie-production teams to check if they are hiring foreigners or hoisting Pakistani flags!
On 1st March , Shiv Sena activists reportedly halted shotting of Ajay Devgn’s ‘ Tez’ on grounds that foriegners were included for some roles.Foreigners who work in Bollywood are under different associations.Well, they were being convinced somehow and shooting started therafter.
Similarly, on 3rd March Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists halted shooting of Brad Pitt starrer movie ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ a movie on Osama. The crew came to Chandigarh to shoot. They wanted to represent Abbottabad on the screen, the city of Pakistan where Osama was killed, hence Chandigarh was chosen. This demanded some Shops addressed with Urdu Hoardings and some Pakistani flag being hoisted around the area to give it Abbottabad look. VHP activists protested this.
What is so patriotic about these acts? Is Bollywood the only source of earning for Marathi Manus that foreigners be objected ? Why always Bollywood ? Is it not because it will make Headlines ? Why do activists portray patriotism, by halting shootings and disallowing Pakistani flags to be hoisted for the same ? Who are they impressing ? And how does these meaningless shooting halts help the common man, ‘ AAM ADMI’ ? The only thing it does is it brings a smile on our face when we read or watch such Parishads And Senas halting shootings, thowing chairs and pelting stones, for no reasons and just to come in limlight. Should we thank them for making us giggle on their acts? Interestingly, when MNS attacks the North Indians , no VHP or Bajrang Dal activists utter a single word against this. Hope, the Senas and Parishads start understanding that at least Urban India is no more a fool and they do not buy these stunts anymore. Better start helpingt the common man- AAM ADMI, for real. Else, who minds smiling on funny shooting halts and baseless road blocks ?

Reporters curious enough to get the update on Team India selection for the upcoming Asia Cup ended up annoying Kris Srikkanth, chairman of selectors, after the press – conference. Srikkanth had announced the 15 players for Asia Cup which excludes Zaheer Khan and Virendra Sehwag.
Curious to find out the actual reason as to why Sehwag was chucked out for the Asia Cup , the reporters repeated the same question differently which apparently harassed him so much that he asked them to Shut-Up ! He reasoned Sehwag and Zaheer being excluded on grounds of injury and after the reports from physio however, the reporters doubted Sehwag being out due to his bad performance throughout the Australian Series , so far !
What is considered to be the voice of trade unions affiliated to most of the mainstream political parties protesting against price rise, violation of labour rights and the Government’s free market policies like disinvestment in public sector companies and privatisation of services is a matter of concern for the ruling UPA, in the centre and a fight of political superiority, in Bengal. The contest is between TMC and CPM,directly in the state.
Is the core issue of strike ‘Power Test’ between TMC & CPM in Bengal ?
CITU called Bandh-Industrial Strike , supported by parent CPI(M) on 28th February 2012 in Bengal today forced the CM Mamata Banerjee admit that strikes do not help any State and Nation. She also ended up apologizing to the people of Bengal for using Bandhs as strongest weapon against the ruling CPM government, in the past. She requested Bengal not to participate in the Industrial Strike and assured necessary arrangements of smooth running of government-run transports like the trains,trams,metro and government buses and warned government officials of actions against the absentees!
Well, it is only after 12 hours from now will we get to know if these appeals and apologies worked for TMC as it was the same party which would frequent the state with regular Bandhs on every possible matter, mostly to show the then ruling Government, the strength and support it was generating, with every passing day.Not to forget, it has rarely been the call or support of issues and political parties, that was behind the success of all the Bandhs but it was the habit of getting used to with the unofficial holidays and spending leisure time, which had been forcing the state to accept any strikes, be it from any party.One cannot deny the chances of violence between supporters of strikes and the ones who wish to attend offices, however, it mostly became reason of a holiday, unquestioned!
Today, it is the opposition which is exploding the same bomb of Strikes on the ruling TMC , mostly to show the strength, it is regaining or to check the strength, after the loss of governance. Topics are too petty to call for a strike yet no big deal if the habituated citizens of Bengal would prefer to spend a leisure time at home while the opposition would claim success of the strike and give TMC a reality-check. On the other side, it is a testing time for Mamata Banerjee , who will have to make sure the Strike has minimum impact. Although, sensing the urgency she already apologized a day before for all the strikes she promoted as opposition party and by appealing Bengal not to support the Bandh! Mamata Banerjee has indicated crackdown measures to ensure the strike doe not effect the state.
