No reason for violence As if it wasn’t shocking enough to hear that a group of agitating workers bludgeoned to death the chief executive (Lalit Kishore Chaudhury) of Graziano Trasmissioni, India’s labour minister declined to criticize the attack, saying it “should serve as a warning for management…Here is something that went unnoticed, an ugly little speech by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram…these ministers epitomize what is wrong with India today…
Welcome to Sajjanpur – Movie Review I was expecting more from Shyam Benegal. I found the movie quite “bollywood” – not only was the story contrived, there were too many songs and even two dream sequences…Everything is authentic, the rustic characters, the scenery, the slice of life sequences…that is the charm of the movie…The story is about Mahadev, the letter-writer of Sajjanpur…During the course of his work he comes across interesting people and becomes privy to their secrets…This gives the director an opportunity to show us fascinating vignettes of people and even if it doesn’t go into making a coherent plot…
Financial Sector tremors and the effect on fresh graduates The world of finance has been shaken by the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers…While all this will directly affect those employed in these companies and those with business interests in these firms, it’s going to impact campus hopefuls in a big way…fresh graduates will not rake in the kind of moolah their predecessors did, not in finance companies anyway…It’s not just the question of some prominent recruiters not showing up on campus as their companies have gone bust. It’s also the question of a large pool of experienced talent which is now out of a job…
Muslims turning away from terrorism but the world is against them Surveys have shown that there has been a continuous decline of support for Osama Bin Laden and his brand of politics in Muslim countries…The latest survey from Pew Global has confirmed the growing opposition to suicide attacks in Muslim countries. The killing of innocents by terrorists has created a disgust for them in the mind of Muslims but unfortunately the killing of innocents by terrorists has created a hostility towards Muslims…
Suburban Life had an interesting tag…she asked her readers to fish out an old photo, preferably a couple of decades old, but not just any old photo. A photograph that shows the real person and taken when the person was unaware.
For me my identity as “Aai” has been of a major part of my adult life. Today this identity is changing as my first born is now living on her own and working at her first job. I am very proud of her as she is only 22 years old. The photograph below was taken around two decades ago.
It was taken without my knowledge and as was usual with me in those days, I hardly looked at myself in the mirror, my hair was usually uncombed and I used to wear just about anything that came to hand! I’ve improved in that department lately.
I am tagging five people:
Reema and Roop. They have to publish a photograph on their blog which was taken about 10 years ago.
I tag Shefaly, or rather challenge her to publish the photograph that she talked about in this post.
I tag Rambodoc to publish a photo of his when he was in medical college.
I tag Vishesh, even though 10 years ago he must have been a kid in shorts!
All these photographs need to be candid photos. No posed for photos. That is the RULE of this tag. If you have no photo like this, or are too shy to publish it, you are welcome to skip this tag. Those who do this tag can tag another five people.
