Budget 2015 misses the important questions:
Budget of India for 2015 passed by Parliament of India with usual rhetoric and careful negligence to important aspects. Opposition which was in power till yesterday is as bereft of constructive criticism as it was out of ideas when in power.
Finance Minister called the economy as recovering economy in his budget 2015 speech. That sums up. Like recovering patient, the economy is in hospital and can not do much for others. Therefore it has to be nursed before it can do anything for others. So what the finance minister did? Raise the tax rate for all citizens and reduce the corporate taxes. His logic is that corporations are needed to invest and to revive economy.
Thus except for small matters, this budget is a status quo.
Economic problem of India:
The worst problem for economy is the Government Expenses and Interest payout on borrowings. 98% of revenue goes into these two heads. Continue reading
This website is hosted on godaddy.com for past few months. It was fine until yesterday but since than I am told that it is down every hour. Jet pack is sending emails about it several times, every hour.
I had thought Godaddy. Com was a serious host. Alas it is not. Like many before, it promised something, that it can not deliver. Only 8 people could land in past 18 hours.
Shame on you godaddy. You too Brutus!
Godaddy is khushbu-e-tashrif:
Today (March 15) I received a warning email that website is consuming resources. I logged in Cpanel and found that yesterday there was IO error by consuming the allocated all the memory of 1024 MB. Today there was no problem but the website is loading slow. Unable to to update plugins and so on.
I have taken a screen shot that there is no resource issue today but yet it took me two hours to edit this page. Does that means that I have bben cheated by Godaddy?
Liars, liars and webhosting providers and there replies/comments (below). This is the screen shot:
Ideas, principles and ideology makes a great breakfast or cocktail snacks but serve poor for dinner. To quote from a Hollywood movie Transformer : ‘the problem with every cause is that in the end cause betrays you.’ Here we are at the crossroads where multiple causes have been betrayed. A mob of people lynched an alleged rapist in Dimapur in North East India. Police involvement is suspected. But that is not the subject. Free speech of journalist in an emotive issue is the subject.
Today is Women’s Day. Congratulations to all. At the same time let us find time to celebrate ‘Human Day’ sometime and try to be completely human on that day.
Many things have happened recently.
Enigma of Marriage
Marriage is enigmatic institution as secret of happy marriage remains a secret. What is marriage? Mythological and spiritual explanations are abound. In Christianity marriage is union ’till death do us part’. In Hinduism Marriage is a union ‘for seven life times’. Of course they must also believe in another fairy tale that marriages are made in heaven and performed on earth.
It appears that in past few decades there has been some disorder or some disruption in the routine of heaven. It is getting increasingly difficult to find happily married couple or worse a suitable prospective spouse.
Do you have mind of your own? Great. Because I don’t. I am frequently able to borrow the mind for doing certain tasks but that’s it. Rest if the time, the mind is on its own. Managing body and fluids, heart beat, temperature, blood pressure and God knows what else. It does all the things on its own. It has never, not even once, asked my opinion. Of course it follows my routine. Too much reckless eating or drinking means too much and often abrupt purgation. Too sedentary life style and may be it speaks through the pain but I am not sure. The worst part is constant churning. It churns even when I am asleep. Continue reading
Askmebazaar.com is an online shopping portal. Apparently they need to get their logistics operations set right. I had ordered a power bank on 11th February which was confirmed same day. Next day I was informed that it has been processed by vender. However after ten days i.e. On 22nd February it was informed that it has been despatched. The vendor took ten days to pack and despatch a branded power bank?
Any how the delivery is still awaited. Since I live in the Central Delhi, it is most unusual. I wonder what if order is placed from a remote village?
Will they take months?
Presently I am waiting for the delivery with baited breath. Apparently shopping online is no bed of roses or should I say Dahlia or marigold as there is aplenty in this season like picture below:
Shall upload picture later as WordPress for iPhone crashes every time I hit update.
First advise to an aspiring intern lawyer.
The act of Lawyer
The world is a theatre and it is not a mere euphemism from Bard. Wherever we go, we profile others in certain image and as per popular images we as members of society have to ‘act’. Thus we are all actors without any room for innocence. Better actors, naturally are more successful.

Rout of opposition in Delhi Elections:
As per expectations, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party won the Delhi elections and routed all other parties. The latter was a shock. Out of 70 total assembly seats AAP has won 67 seats remaining three being BJP 2 and SAD 1 seat. The projected Chief Ministerial candidate of BJP also lost. Everything went wrong for congress which lost it’s all seats. What made this happen? Right answer is almost obvious but is missed by politicians. Continue reading
Charity is something we are taught from childhood.
Like good manners. Compassion is something far more profound. Charity is cultivated but compassion exists in the empty areas when there is no activity of ambition, achievement or competition or the like. Charity can be done but compassion happens. Compassion can be the cause of charity but not the other way round.
Traditions turning opaque:
