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

Times Of India – TOI – Mind your Language

20 Apr

Let me not be the judge .. Wondering if it is correct to use the sentence -” HC tells cops …”

This is a very responsible Newspaper is it not ? We mere mortals can go wrong in our english language, but high standards of english  is expected out of a national level newspaper , no ?

Correct me if I wrong .

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 …

Lalith Modi : Corporate Pimp: IPL

17 Apr

Tomorrow IPL starts . And guess what ? I am gonna keep away from it . Not watching IPL matches is at the top my list of ” What not to do  during this summer” .  Here is why …

IPL Matches : Rise of the Corporate Pimp ( and his chamchas) :

I gotta to hand it to that man . One Mr.Lalit Modi. Corporate Pimp par excellence.He moved IPL matches which is [India Primeir League] to South Africa. Why ? Becuase  he just couldnt keep himself away from money.

Lalith Modi

He chose Greed over Safety. Money over Motherland.

When India votes for its future in the next 2 months , becuase of this one man,  a group of Indian crickerts will be not be voting.

He wanted to fill his coffers. He wanted to make sure his chamchas -SRK, Priety Zinta, Shilpa Shetty and wife of some prominent Indian business man who are so jobless that they got into such business –  also get the millege of the money invested. This is sheer pimping – Corporate Ishstyle !

r-k-laxman

Here is a nation battling a mamoth of elections . The numbers are awe inspiring .It will be spread over five stages, taking four weeks and involving 6.5m staff. In 543 constituencies, 4,617 candidates, representing some 300 parties, will compete for the ballots of an electorate of 714m eligible voters. The voting will happen in over 828,804 polling stations.

This election is going be under such a intense security due to the terror threat. And yet,this man just simply wanted his ROI. Bloody F***king money mongering …

As a self respecting , urban, middle class Indian I am gonna be involved in voting and be part of this election process than be caught watching IPL matches.

Common Guys ! I may not have money these people have , but hey , I have the dignity which they lack.

Someone forgot to tell Lalit that Indian Elections are conducted during the summer season every 5 years. He could have set the dates of these matches pre or post elections.

Some people just dont change !

The One good thing :

Economist in its latest article India’s jumbo election has this quote –

A poor, diverse country of more than 30 main languages and six main religions, India also has, in the Hindu caste system, a tradition of hierarchy seemingly at odds with a system of universal suffrage.

Since when did India become poor? Wonder why The Economist is so anti – India all the time in its articles.

Did they not realize that because the Indian govt dint budge under Laith’s threats and becasue IPL has moved to South Africa , it has indirectly opened gates of money which will be pumped into the South African Economy?

IPL will be bring loads of money into South Africa in  the form of increased tourism ,tax money, ticket sales, job generation and etc ..

We just did South Africa  a big favor by not allowing IPL in India. Lol! Aint that awesome ..

(Oh yes, these are my thoughts and  opinions  and not a corporate blog)


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 !
