Raja                                                                        Kani
Damn 'Open Magazine' and 'Outlook' for releasing the audiotapes and publishing the transcripts of the telephone conversations between Niira Radia and the stalwarts of Indian politics, corporate world, and journalism. If you come across Niira Radia - Giribala Joshi tapes, please keep in mind that I am not a lobbyist, nor an opportunist; my conversations with Radia had been a part of my normal writeristic duties.

पामेला देवी को भारतीय नारी के परिधान में देखकर, और उनके हिन्दी संभाषण से प्रभावित होकर, मेरी कलम ने अँग्रेज़ी में लिखने से इन्कार कर दिया.

देवी जी अमरीका नामक दूर देश से भारतीय पुरुषों के उद्धार हेतु आगमित हुई थी. अन्यथा उन असंतुष्ठ पुरुषों को मृत्यु उपरांत मोक्ष की प्राप्ति नहीं होती. ईश्वर उन्हें यह कहकर कि “वत्स, तुम्हारे जीवन की आकांक्षाएँ अभी पूर्ण नहीं हुई है,” पुनः धरा पर भेज देते.

वैसे जनसामान्य को मात्र इतनी ही सूचना थी कि पामेला जी बिग्ग बॉस नामक अ त्यंत ही निरर्थक तमाशे में भाग लेने हेतु तीन दिन के लिए पधारी हैं.

We Should Never Forget Our Heroes

A. Raja
(TGM has put a kala tika and 
a special jhadoo to ward off the evil eye)
In spite of the cutthroat competition in this dog-eat-dog world, many brave-hearts have been able to rise above mediocrity and shine like superstars.

Andimuthu Raja is one such gem. He is a great philanthropist, a modern day Robin Hood. He stripped the good-for-nothing Indian Government of Rs 17,00,00,00,00,000 and benefited many common people in the process. After such remarkable achievement, he certainly deserves to enjoy a big slice of the Rs 17,00,00,00,00,000 extra-cheese pizza, but no, Indians have a tendency to bring down the successful. Sadly, A. Raja had to resign as the Telecom Minister yesterday, but that doesn’t mean we should let him fade into oblivion.

Princess Sita
 (The only picture of Sita holding a bow. Modified from a picture on this page)
Diwali, the festival of lights, is intrinsically related to the Hindu epic, Ramayana. According to a newer version* of the epic, called Sita Charita Manas, on this day, Princess Sita returned to Mithila after killing the demon queen Mandodari, and was welcomed by her subjects with lit diyas or tiny earthen lamps amid great festivity.
