dead meat

It is difficult not to look at this moment, with nothing other than a sense of happiness and relief. The death of Prabhakaran, much as many would consider a hero of the tamil cause, is a man wanted in India, for the assassination of a Prime Minister. His death, albeit by the Sri Lankan military, is still the desired outcome.


With his death, i believe people interested in the cause of the tamil people in Sri Lanka, can truly join together to help their cause.

Vodafone ZooZoo - Funniest one

These commercials caught my attentions (like a million other people), when it first started airing during the IPL cricket games. I have picked the one that i found the most funny. I liked the stupid and comical laugh from the zoozoo, as he trys to fool the croc. Well, then he gets a little busy to answer the phone. :)

So, explain this to me !!

This short news brief reported by AFP, was carried by a lot of news sites and papers. I read it first on the front page of the Economic Times, under their 'Suddenly Something' column, which is mainly some weird or funny news from around the world.

The whole news was rather weird, but the last line of the report made it even weirder, and left me dazzled at the brilliance of the whole initiative.
More than half of all male doctors in China smoke, but the government is now trying harder to get them to kick the habit in order to set an example for others, state media reported recently.
So here is my question, the point is to stop smoking or to encourage smoking? I am not sure if i should question the judgment of the Chinese government initiative or the the possible brilliance of the reporter who first caught the story. Something is wrong somewhere. No matter which, there is a lot of room for thinking.

News: No butts: China orders officials to smoke

Let your Vote Count

This is from advertisement created by Times of India's Lead India campaign to create awareness about the power of a vote.

Three out of two phases of the election to the create a new parliament and government to lead the country for next five years are over. The results so far are not encouraging. By results i mean, the percentage of votes cast, not who is elected. It does not mean we should lose hope. It just means we need to be more agressive about this message.
