SUN TV Anchor's Dhimmitude

UBL stands for Usama Bin Laden in the intelligence tongue. UBL is the man who was a CIA asset in Afghanistan purposefully created and carefully brought up, but ruthlessly neutralized by the creators as the asset turned out to be a bloody liability due to his allegiance to Wahhabi Islam which proved to be dangerous to the whole world.

Well, we have a person similar to UBL in the SUN Network, the most popular SUN media group owned by the Maran family, close relatives of the DMK patriarch Karunanidhi. The Dravidian political parties in TamilNadu stick to their stand of vilifying only Hinduism and Hindu Gods in the name of atheism. Veerapandian, an anchor with the SUN Group, is a breed of this Dravidian school of thought, especially of the followers of E V Ramasamy Naicker, who is still known as father of this imbecile school of thought.

Opinion on Opinion Polls

Opinion polls serve as eye opener for some and root cause for lethargy for some in politics, especially during the run up to elections. The recent survey taken by some media houses with the help of some companies paste a picture that brings smile on the BJP supporters and makes the Modi supporters exult. The surveys predict a favourable atmosphere for BJP in 3 States going to the polls, with Rajasthan offering it a landslide victory, the Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh voters exude a feel that they will be sticking to the incumbent Government, Delhi appears to be heading for a hung Assembly. One opinion poll gives Congress a slight edge over others in Delhi and a lesser impact in Rajasthan with some gains in Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. But most of them state that it is BJP all over with Delhi giving an unclear mandate.

My Eye treatment - Part 2

Continuation of this

On 12th April, I went to Aravind Hospital and was taken to the block for in-patients. I asked for an AC room as earlier, but the AC rooms were fully occupied. So I opted for an A-Class room which was offered. The room was comfortable and two people were allowed to stay with me. I was called in for pre surgery tests at 12.10 PM and was taken into the theater at 12.30 PM. I met Dr.Usha Kim when I was waiting in the room. She advised me to relax and she will be doing the corrective surgery

My Eye Treatment - Part 1

I'm recording here, my personal experience of an eye treatment I underwent. This post is purely personal.
I had been having issues with my left eye for a couple of decades now. An accident during the past added to the woes, but it was okay to live with, as it didn't cause any pain or serious problems of any sort by the Grace of my Guru Thapas Chakravarthi Shri Bhrathee Theertha Mahaswamiji of Sringeri and my God the Great Jala Rakshaka Ayyanar of Rajapalayam. But right after the Sankranthi holidays of 2013 (mid January) I've been having an irritation in the left eye and have been continuing with some eye drops advised by my ophthalmologist. Later my dad suggested that I sit with the Ophthalmologist at Rajapalayam for finding out a permanent solution for this. The Clinic is called Shakthi Eye Hospital and Dr.Rajesh & Dr.Anitha were running it. I finally agreed with my dad to meet with this 'couple' of doctors.

Tamil, Terror and Tenacity

My article published in Udai India

The nightmares of 2009 armed conflict in SriLanka have been revived now for political reasons. Students in TamilNadu are agitating for the cause of Tamil Eelam (a separate nation demand), the welfare of the Tamils in SriLanka, Prosecution of the SriLankan President Mahinda Rajapakse, Imposition of economic sanctions on SriLanka and severing of diplomatic ties with that nation. The war and the related crimes happened four years ago. The politicians in TamilNadu especially those who hold the Eelam cause high now, were docile, dormant and inert while having all the power with them to have made an effective attempt to stop the killing of innocents. The students were also there in 2009. All were docile when people were killed and shouting after 4 years which is akin to refusing donating blood for a dying patient but crying at the cemetery years after the death.

A point of odour. May it please you, Justice Katju!

We've been hearing a lot of lament about delayed and denied justice to the affected parties, particularly with regards to the violence happened after the Godhra train massacre in 2002, from Mr. Justice (Retd) Markandey Katju. He has earlier raised this point with a suggestion that all the scents of Arabia will not be sufficient to get rid of the bad odour of the violence. When Justice Katju faced opposition for the tenor of his essay, he was pretty determined not to listen to the other side. He has now gone over to Pakistan through it's newspapers and spoken against the Gujarat Chief Minister, probably for the convenience of a like minded audience without an iota of opposition to his views.

Scent of a retired Judge

Mr.Justice Markandey Katju, the Chariman of the Press Council of India, is known for his legal acumen and out spoken nature. He is famous for his open mouth comment in the open court aimed at senior counsel P.P. Rao. He has been writing many articles some of those make good sense and many of those go otherwise. Of late, Justice Katju seems to have a gross contempt for his fellow countrymen and is very much open mouthed in his criticism.

Felons are a result of bad parenting

Of late we've been hearing the media hullabaloo over the Delhi gang rape and other such incidents in the society. We've been wondering what has gone wrong with some of our folks? Why there is a sudden spike in such violence? Why do we have an increase in this untenable behaviour?  Are we doing anything for that apart from commenting on Facebook and participating in candle light processions? Many people blame the society and the trend of the lifestyle for this and ask for a change. That is perfect. But I have a question for those folks. The panic is justifiable, since we have sisters, cousins, daughters and friends in the women folk whom we wish to be safe in the world and cannot tolerate the agony of them getting violated.

The cyclonic monk who saved a fainting nation

Twelfth of January every year is observed as Youth Day, since it is Swami Vivekananda's  Birth day. The nation celebrates the 150th Birthday of the Swami with a situation comparably similar to that of the days of the Swamiji. In those days people were accepting that the culture of the land was inferior and the way of life needed refinement to reflect that of the European which was considered civil enough and anything that didn't have a semblance to it was termed barbaric. Macaulay, taking a mammoth step towards asserting British supremacy, summarily brushed aside the ancient scriptures of our culture with a sweep of left hand as unworthy. Did he read those and have any reason to conclude? Hardly is the answer to the first part and arrogance is the answer to the second part of the question.
