Last week Rahul Gandhi continued his make over by visiting Vidarbha where few farmers had comitted suicide. I don't know who to pity: the depressed, futureless and the hopeless or the farmers.

Tired of the condescending attitude of Indian media after earthquake, Nepalese started #GoHomeIndianMedia campaign on twitter last week. Of course, to make it the trending topic, they had to ask the Indian media personnel on Twitter to RT their tweets.

TJ Jose, Inspector General of Police, Kerela, was caught copying in the LLB exam. Unbelievable! Our country is going down the drains. The guardians of law are not following the law themselves - why did he not bribe the invigilator to keep the matter hush.

Young players of W.Indies like Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels and Jason Holder deliver superlative performance as W.Indies defeat England in a test for the first time in six years.

Sachin Tendulkar and C.N.R Rao were conferred with Bharat Ratna in a ceremony yesterday. I think the status of Bharat Ratna is falling over years. Has he ever scored a triple century in tests? Has he ever scored the maximum number of runs in a year?  I mean, who is this C.N.R Rao?

Microsoft has appointed Indian born Satya Nadella as its CEO. Before he had played key role in launching Bing. I am happy to see that Microsoft is moving away from cheap labour and crappy products as a strategy. But there was a small hiccup in the press meet yesterday. When the announcer said that Nadella had worked on Bing, everybody wanted to know what it was. Nadella jumped in and said, "You haven't heard of Bing! It is very famous. Just Google it and you will know."

Abdul Kalam, in a function yesterday, urged the kids to think out of the box. The kids said they are! "Nowadays we are into xbox." They shouted back.

Amitabh Bachchan has said he stopped endorsing Pepsi after a girl in Jaipur asked him why he promoted the soft drink that her teacher had branded as 'poison'. Nowadays Amitabh Bachchan endorses Gujarat tourism and was on his way to Godhra to shoot another advertisement when he revealed this.

Ian Thorpe has checked into rehab and getting treatment for depression. In 1998, when Thorpe came to the press meet after he won the first world chamionship, he was wearing a T.Shirt that said - I am more intelligent when I am under water. I thought it was just a joke. Stupid me!

Father Karunanidhi and brother Stalin did not greet me on my birthday - Alagiri

Big deal! You hate your father and brother, because of this! You give interviews to papers!
Look, I received just one greeting on my birthday : from Icici Prudential.
Do I cry like a baby? Do I feel like a total loser?
Horror of horrors! Do I go out and do the unthinkable - change the car insurance from Tata AIG to Icici prudential.
Absolutely not.
If life has taught me one thing, it is this:
Just like each finger in a hand is different, each insurance company has a different CRM solution.

If alagiri can get that, then he would have found the secret to have a happier birthday.
Send email greetings to you Gmail account from your yahoo account and vice-versa.

I will not sacrifice self-respect for power - Siddaramaiah

Dear hacker,
if you have stolen my password, please send a email greeting to my Gmail account on my birthday.

India celebrated 67th Independence Day

India celebrated the 67th Independence day by telecasting the movie Gandhi for the 37th time in national television. Indians , across the country, made fun of Britain who has given Independence to half the nations across the world but does not have an Independence day sale of their own.
