Peace ?

Some care.

Some dont.

We need to have more of the former and less of the latter.

Like the Beatles said, Give Peace a chance.........

Some others said something similar :

The crying need for younger MP's.....

Despite the hype about younger members getting elected to Parliament, the first round of Ministers sworn in on May 22, answer to an average age of 65.

Given the several unusual activities that take place in the name of protests, listening to one's conscience, and giving in to the attraction of the "green" , here is a reason to induct the younger lot on May 26.

Unconfirmed reports say that Chair fling, Microphone throw, and Tarzan swing are being included as new Sports at the Commonwealth games 2010.

The 'K ' Opera

"Yes, What will you have , sir ? "
the Congress asked .

(Coffee, Tea or Ministry?)


Mr K, on the phone to the PM.

Karunanidhi, the head of DMK, currently the ruling party's primary ally, demands ministries for his children as a condition for support.

The family tree is as shown. Matters get complicated due to a multiwife multikid system. Wives are not shown.

K and A may get ministries, S gets the state as his fiefdom, and we still havent shown Karunanidhi's nephew, who demands the IT ministry.

The K operas on TV may have gone into a lull.

But the K opera continues, full blast , in politics.

K : daughter Kanimozhi S : daughter Selvi
S : son Stalin (real name :-) ) A : son Azhagiri T: son Tamilarasu
w :wife (generic), numbered chronologically.

(Where did all the qualified people in Chennai go? Why the K's ?).....

P. S. I mean, why have someone with an "A " name fighting elections from Madurai ? I know an excellent "K" type from Madurai , whose name has something in common (50%) with another son " T" shown above.......:-)

Judiciary Awakening......

This is what appeared in the Mumbai Mirror, today, May 20, 2009

Bow to your wife’s diktat, Supreme Court tells husbands (Link)

The Judiciary has finally awakened. :-)

Among the pearls of judicial wisdom :

If your wife asks you to put your face that side, put it that side. If she says, put it this side, then put it this side. Otherwise you will face trouble. We are all sufferers.” "

"Listen to whatever your wife says, otherwise you could land in trouble,”

Some Gandhis are more real than others....

Parliament to host 4 Gandhis for the first time.(LINK)

The late Indira Gandhi's 2 daughters-in-law, and two grandson's now in Parliament....

Actually, there are 5.

Sonia Gandhi, UPA chairperson, her son Rahul Gandhi. Both Indian National Congress

Maneka Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party.
Her son Varun Gandhi, belonging to the same.

Unfortunately, in all their estrangement, fights, name calling,threats and enimity , they have forgotten the original Gandhi, no blood relation of theirs (thankfully), who has been in Parliament , sitting outside with his eyes closed. Maybe he anticipated this. And he couldnt watch....

The Gandhis:

S: Sonia R: Rahul P : Priyanka(she isnt in Parliament, yet)
M: Maneka V: Varun

Missile Magic

All political leaders who were made targets of footwear missiles in the run up to the Lok Sabha polls have tasted victory in the elections 2009.

Legend :

M : ManMohan Singh, the PM

A : L.K.Advani, Opposition Leader

C : Chidambaram, Home Minister

Nowithstanding the protective shields they have in front (white), today, besides, money, oratory, stamina, and guile you also need to appoint guys to throw shoes at you....

Stupid, isnt it ?

First it was the mad Cow disease, then SARS and Bird Flu, Now its the Swine Flu......

Question is, after blaming these for the diseases, entire populations continue to eat them ?

Like they say in the graphic, "these stupid humans ....

Do we look forward now to Fish Flu, Sheep Flu, and in some countries Snake and Cockroach flu ?
