Laloo pulled a fast one on the nation

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India has exploded the "Laloo-Railways success story" myth. This blog had its reservations and they have been proved true now with the CAG report on the Indian Railways. Laloo was upto to his old tricks of fooling the people like he did in Bihar, except the CAG (which always does a remarkable job) exposed the real reasons.
A politician who made his fortune by robbing fodder off bovines has chronic moral issues. His tenure as Bihar's chief minister saw the state's progress dip continually southwards. And since losing his hold over Bihar he went all hyper in appeasing the Muslims, holding rallies with Osama lookalikes, completely belying all responsibilities of a politician, supporting SIMI, trying to seek moral sanction to it's actions with dubious arguments, declaring Muslim youth charged of terrorism as innocents before the law had even taken its course. His act as a stand-up comic during the trust vote debate was completely bereft of any serious argument or contribution to the discussion. He took liberal digs at serious politicians who hold the parliament in extremely high regard. With a legacy like that, it would be a miracle if Laloo actually did any good to the nation.

Tricolour on the moon soon

On Oct 22, 2008 at 06:22 am IST we became only the fourth nation in the world to launch a moon mission. Chandrayaan-I is an unmanned mission to the moon that will also plant the tricolour on the lunar surface when it lands there in about 2 years. This is significant as we beat China who has only launched an orbiting mission so far.
ISRO scientists have made India proud and well deserved kudos are pouring from all over the world. Cheers to them and India!

Geert Wilders gets it

This Dutch MP has been fighting the Islamisation of his country and is urging Europe to wake up to this danger. The dramatic rise of radical Muslims is threatening the peace and existence of the region. The situation is pretty much similar to that of India's. The story is the same wherever there are Muslims in large numbers.
He has made a movie, titled 'Fitna', that emphasises the problem with the Islamic ideology. Watch the two parts here. (Warning! Graphic content.)
But Geert faces an uphill task, for there is no dearth of apologists. He was interviewed on the BBC by Stephen Sakur. Watch the interview and you will be hard pressed to differentiate between Sakur and the various pseudo-secular journalists back home. Dhimmis are the same all over the globe and unfortunately they have infiltrated various media houses heavily.
Here is the interview -
