tibits

Blore was no escaping the heat..even Blore scored a century couple of days back (ya..100 deg Farenheit against a 108 in madras!)..so no great solace..and I sighed some 100 times thinking of the good old days, just some 12 years back when we used to go out for a happy walk at noon in peak summer without any hassle..so the good old blore is gone..hopefully all this IT thingy will get shifted else where and spare this city of more – people, traffic, pollution, heat and what not..hmm..

Its sad that Pramod Mahajan died..I used to like his Instant presence of minded one liners and killers..his extempore speeches were a rage I have heard, but what I know of his oratory skills is from what I got to see on TV (talk shows etc)..there used to be some very good funny and witty ones he used to throw so regularly..sample: while some cong minister blah blahed on his achievements, next came Mahajan and started “ sometimes as ministers we are forced to marry pregnant brides and have to take credit for other’s deeds” (got it? The prev govt obviously was BJP’s;-)) sometimes thought provoking too..

Another very sad incident was the killing of Suryanarayana, the Indian Engineer from AP. Very bad and sad..This is 2nd at Afghan in the recent times (remember one Kutty a jawan, couple of months ago?) and I hope our Govt does something concrete beyond committees, reviews, studying the situation etc. Its bad that Indians are targeted in many places now (in the mid east - more a pak influence than other reasons)..if we don’t react sanely we shall see more of such situations. one right move and we could close these nonsensical fallouts. Classic example to note here is: There was one hijacking incident of Israel air (way back in 1989 if I am right) and they said then that it shall be the only one to happen. Till date that is so, bcos they took some sane and strong decisions with some spine!

Finally in all this heat, the election heat is not as much as the earlier years..IMHO that’s a good sign, but the vote percentage should not be below 50 if we have to show we are a responsible lot..in this context I found a good observation by the Vijaykanth’s party – they claim if the voter % increases so will their share and they put forward a clear number too!
