Why should Shashi go out and Raja still remain?

24 Apr

Will someone please tell me, why did the Congress Govt buck under the pressure of opposition and remove Shashi Taroor over a speculated charge and yet allow a minister like A.Raja to continue function as the Minister of Telecom? Even the CAG has pointed out under in its report that under Raja, the telecom industry has lost hundreds and thousands of crores of money.

Why send off a well educated oxford scholor like Shashi Taroor ? His mistake – trying to help his so called gf .

I would really the Govt of India to answer my question

TOI Sleaze Journalism – Is this a way to build a brand?

17 Apr

Sleaze Journalism by TOI

Sleaze Journalism by Times of India :

TOI it is all about sensationalism and sleaze reporting and promoting to increase readership and TRP ratings. Why use the word SEX in this ad just because a glamorous lady is involved in the current IPL controversy? Why create such sleaze journalism? Why waste paper unnecessarily for printing this edition? Crest edition contains nothing by useless content and loads of advertisement to make money and mislead people .

The question I am asking : Is this how a national brand should behave ? Is this how you build brand reputation ?

Using the word SEX is to gain eyeballs to increase readership ratings is the most disgusting and unethical way to promote brand …

IPL disgust – Capitalist Morons – why i will never watch IPL matches

6 Feb

I feel revolted when i see cricket  players being “auctioned” and bought for IPL matches.

How is it that the people who are involved in bidding and buying players have the heart to dish out crores of money to buy players when common people across the country…nay world ( because even foreign players are involved) are loosing jobs or tightening their wallet due to economic slow down ?

In December we witnessed one of the most dastardly terrorist attack the world has ever seen. Hundreds died, still you have hundreds  in hospitals recovering from their injuries , some are still in trauma caused due to the tragedy .

And yet, here we have a group of extremely wealthy corporate assholes paying huge chunks of money to play 20 overs cricket match.  Basically you are just blowing away crores of money in matter of hours.

What i don’t understand is how can Vijay Mallya pay Rs. 7cr on one side for just one English player when  his KingFisher airline is making huge losses and owe the government 100cr on airline fuel charges?

Get this straight ! That 100 crore is not any body’s but our money . Suffice to say he owes people like you and me and the rest of India  Rs100 cr and plus. It our  money –  what we pay to the country in the form tax, guys!

But he is not at fault . The fault is completely ours. We are not proactive. And that includes me as well!

If I was proactive I would have asked him , ” dude!  who the fuck gave you the right to buy another “human being” , when you don’t have the decency to pay back what you owe the government ?  or at least invest that money in improving the efficiency of your company so that you don’t have cut jobs tomorrow ”

I so wanted to ask Mrs Ambani , ” Just because you eat, sleep, drink, swim money , how is that you have the heart to be so bloody ostentatious during such difficult times ?  You live in Mumbai, don’t you ?  what have you done for the injured or the family of the martyrs of the terrorist attack ? ”

To Ms Preity Zinta –  ” That’s right! you have become too old to act as a heroine. Accept that fact. You don’t have producers lined up outside your door to sign up movies. Tough luck! but that is how it is . Use money wisely .. Just because your bf is coming from a wealth family , doesn’t mean that you…. you get the drift , don’t you ? ”

To Ms Shetty –  ” You suck ! how long are you gonna flaunt you Big Boss win ? How long are you gonna live under the assumption that people in India really give a hoot about you ? ”

In the olden days wealthy merchants used to buy slaves and prostitutes from the market . Slaves for hard labour and prostitutes for the obvious reasons. Irrespective of the economic situation around them , they continued to eat, sleep, become fat and have a gal time with women.

How different is that from what is happening today at the IPL auctions ?

Here are my questions to you ?

Why are you watching these matches , just to increase TRP ratings and waste your time only to re fill the pockets of these morons ? Why not use that time to go out and play a match with your friends ? That way you excerise your body!

I am not saying that you should stop watching cricket , but hey ! there are other sports in the country too. There are other players looking out for support from you as well .

There are other players in the arena from other sports who are not asking for money but for appreciation. Who are not seeking brand ambassador tags but money for training and infrastructure.

Simple case in point – corporates chased Sania Mirza not only for her win in Wimbledon but she is considered “hot” and “sexy” . Vijinder Kaur looks like a “model” hence he get brand endorsements .

What about other players who won medals for our nation during the Olympics . Sure you said , ” I am proud of you guys”. After that ? Everybody forgets !

We should be ashamed of ourselves, no?

It is ironic that a boxer whos sport is of destructive nature endoring a insurance product ?

So, ask yourself this question – ” how skin deep and money minded am i ?”

And  another culprit is the media. Ndtv is so jobless that they dedicated a show just to bring in the bidders to talk /discuss about why they paid so much money and blah … blah .. Nonsense . What is there to discuss ? They came with money, they falunted their wealth , bid like it is done in a market and went home with a bunch of slaves. And yeah, they appeared on TV ..  The same goes for other tv channels  as well .

I have decided never to watch 20/20 matches. I feel used by the capitalist assholes . I am too intelligent, too smart and have too much diginty to fall for this bloody money making game.

Sure , money is important. Not advocating to stop wacthing cricket matches or stop cheering the cricket team .But there is a limit to everything !

I suggest you guys do the same ! It is only a suggestion , though

Understand one simple thing – end of the day everything is about how many ads were aired, the TRP raitings and money generated. It is not about the game !

Why

Stop picking on Rahul Dravid please …

14 Dec

I don’t get it . Why is the media hounding Rahul “The Wall” Dravid all the time? Sure.. he is having some major problems in scoring .So what ?

He is the same guy who was the toast of the media when he won matched for India in both forms of the game. In fact , he is the most successful player in Indian cricket history for playing test matches abroad. scores of budding cricket players have watched an learnt from him – stability,concentration and technique. He is not called “The Wall” for nothing.

R.Dravid is not the lord of offside like Saurav , nor is he swashbuckling player like Viru, a brilliant genius like tendulkar or the “sweet timer” of the ball like Laxman. But none of the mentioned players has the power of concentration, technique and stability like Dravid has. period. He was the guy who on numerous occasions held a partnership together from the other. He kept the ball running and scores ticking . He did it in his own way. He enjoyed the game for how he played. He done all that he can for his team. So , it would be really nice if the media left him alone. He is going through a lean patch . if so .. then so be it.  Instead of predicting or calling for his retirement . Let him leave when he wants at his own pace. It is so easy for us to sit on the fences and criticise him on how he plays . Let us not do that anymore..

Let him play his game .
