Mumbai Potholes replace Maternity Wards ?

No matter how much annoyed Mumbai is with the potholes on its roads, there never seems to be a solution to the problem since ages.With the monsoons hitting the city, the matter turns worse. But seems not all is bad about those bumpy ride of Mumbai streets packed with traffic and potholes. They seem to have replaced the Maternity Homes, at least in two incidents,in a month’s time. Two women have given birth while on their way to the maternity homes, crossing the stretch of potholes, boarded in auto-rickshaws. Astonishingly, the doctor claims(in the recent case) that the bumpy ride allows easy delivery of baby without putting much pressure on the womb !

Well, seems like Mumbaikers have got a reason to cherish the existence of the annoying potholes of the streets ! 🙂

P Chidambaram mocks at Common Man ?

Home Minister,P Chidambaram’s statement on common man – “we are prepared to pay Rs 15 for a bottle of water, but we can’t bear to pay Re 1 more of 1 kg of rice or wheat, we are prepared to pay Rs 20 for an ice cream cone, but we can’t pay Re 1 more for one kilo of wheat or rice” has been criticized by opposition party BJP who believe Chidambaram does not understand common man’s problems !

Well, rice and wheat is consumed on a daily basis hence even an increase of a Rupee would affect every concerned household compared to the cost of ice-creams and bottled-water which are consumed less frequently.

Well, cartoons seem to be bothering our politicians, way too much,  be they are on school textbooks or on social networks! 😉 . Are cartoons just not a medium of expression ? Who defines ‘Negative References’ ? Political columns , hundreds in number, everyday, get pressed in newspapers and online. Even those writings  criticize  politicians and political scenarios of recent times and of the past. Like writing even drawing is a way of  expression about a thing,person or situation. Isn’t it ? What are we scared about as politicians ? What is their in the past which we do not want our future generations to know ? Someday, it may happen that books criticizing particular politicians of past and their decisions may be banned ! Is this democracy or hypocrisy in the name of it ? 🙁

 

Paes confirms participation in Olympics !

Leander Peas,India’s number one tennis player had threatened to withdraw from the Olympics after being paired with a much lower-ranked Vishnu Vardhan as Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna,the two competent players refused to partner him and wanted to partner each other excluding Leander instead. After his confirmation it is likely that All India Tennis Association would send Vardhan as Paes’ partner !

Should players of national level and importance, in any sport ,let their personal conflicts disturb their profession , all the more, when it is about nation’s self-respect and pride ? Who is playing dirty politics is surely unknown but should responsible players like Bhupathi and Bopanna disrespect the association and a senior player, in public, by declining to partner with Paes for Olympics ?
