has been left behind and now every Indian looks forward to each and every sportsperson which is taking part in this games under the flag of India that they prove India whatever happen in past we will never look past and we people always look forward. This has been shown by every Indian who have been watched the opening ceremony in JLN Stadium, New Delhi. It was not just an opening ceremony it was really a great and great spectacular ceremony it was. So there was lots of things that have signified Indian rich cultural heritage, rich youth various dynamic varsity, rich traditions etc. One of the most signified moment was when Master Keshav, a tabla maestro just 2 years old has been performed just before HariHaran, the legend in Indian music. But it was the beginning of Indian rich cultural heritage. There was more signified performance like the cultural program from all Indian states, the rich journey of India railways. But not least at last we have watched the wonderful performance perform by Indian music legend who have been remarked us on international stage as well the AR Rahman started with ‘O,Yaro India Bula Liya………’ a commonwealth theme song followed by his internationally famous ‘Jai Ho……..’.

The Indian people will watched the sportsperson who can deliver better this time. Saina Nehwal, Chetan Anand-Jwala Gutta, Vijender Singh, Akhil Kumar, Sonia Chanu, Monika Devi, Leander-Bhupati, Sania Mirza, Rohan Bopanna, Somdev Devvarman, Abhinva Bindra, ManavJit Singh Sandhu, Samresh Jung, Gagan Narang, Tejaswini Sawant, K Poonia, Seema Antil, Sharath Kamal, Dola Banerjee, Sushil Kumar, Joshna Chinnappa and Women’s Hocky Team these are on my list of medalist after final day of game. The men’s Hocky team is not on my list because they most unpredictable games side in India like Indian Cricket Team.  So I wish them Best of Luck from bottom of my heart and I will pray that the Indian team can get better rank from last commonwealth games which had been held on Melbourne, Australia in 2006 and they show better sportsmanship this time.

Shame for Us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Basic pay hiked three times from Rs 16k to Rs 50K (demand for Rs 80,001 so salaries higher than govt secys) Office expenses hiked from Rs 20K to Rs 40K/month Constituency allowance doubled to Rs 40K/month limit for interest-free loan for buying cars hiked four-fold to Rs 4 lakh road mileage rate for vehicles used by MPs up from Rs 13/km to Rs 16/km MP’s spouse can travel any number of times in first class in railways. Can also claim road mileage Pension increased from Rs 8K to Rs 20K/month MP’s also get 150,000 free phone calls a year on 3 landlines and 2 mobile phones rent-free housing; govt pays rent on furniture up to Rs 60,000, Rs 15,000 for addl items Free washing of sofa covers, curtains, bathroom tiles 50,000 units of electricity a year 4000 kilo litres of water 12K hike in MPs’ pension. It is almost cost to country for each MP’s to above than 37 Lacs per year, it 68th times more than our per capita income. But the simple fact and great one is that more than 350 MP’s out of 543 in Lok Sabha is Crorepati(Billionaire).

Tennis stars threaten to pull out

The entire fracas that hit Indian tennis on its face on Friday seems to be all about bills. Players say they’ve submitted all bills since 2008 but AITA has feigned ignorance on the matter. And if these bills aren’t cleared in time, then the Indian team of Somdev Devvarman, Rohan Bopanna, Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi might well be missing from the tennis courts in Delhi during the CommonWealth Games. So if the people expending in crores in their pocket why not the players are paid in time. How we can expect that they will do much for us in their respective games. The same drama we have seen before the Hocky World Cup held on Delhi earlier this year. So we have to be feel same on this type of drama.

Here I have mix two story of today that how are netas insensitive against common people. In one side our sports person who give us reason to feel proud and another side our netas always give us reason to same on us.

News Point@NDTV (23rd March 2010)

Question: Should Delihites pay for Commonwealth Games 2010?

This question arise by Abhigyan Prakash on News Point@NDTV on 23rd March 2010 and very next morning when Delhi Govt. has been floored the State Budget 2010-2011 in Delhi Legislative Assembly. If looked the budget at lightly way than anybody can understand the budget is not for General People. All necessarily goods has been increased by VAT for example Diesel, LPG, CNG, Cold Drinks, Tea, Cofee, Desi Ghee, Dry Fruits, Household Plasic  Goods, Utensils, Cutlery, Locks, Furniture, Wire & Metal mesh, Glucose D, Kerosene Stoves, Lanterns, Petromax & their  spares. I have mentioned those items which effect the pocket of Genral People and these are necessity of general people. But after looking extensively on budget this will not  constraint on selected items. If diesel prices will hike than lot of grocery item’s price  will automatically increase because of transportation charge will increase as well.

In last two-three days Honourable CM said that you are always asking about price hike but not talking about salary hikes. How many people are working on salary basis or doing some job.  Suppose if the salaried people gets hike than our CM should also know the last year’s recession and

how many people lost their job as well, but if among them some of survived well than how much they get hike in their salary. Current year is also not going well for unorganised sector as well.

Our honourable CM is saying if we should live in world class city than we have to pay for that. Is Delhi is world class City? I don’t think our CM don’t know what is the definition and what are the basic amenaties are mandatory for world class city. Is our CM is talking about Lutien’s Delhi than I don’t think it will pass the basic criteria for being a world class  city. Just look some the place and think twice and thrice over that Delhi is world class City or not for example: Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri, Mangolpuri, KarawalNagar, NandNagri, InderPuri, Babarpur Khajuri, Bhajanpura, Nathupura, Burari, Sonia Vihar,  Jhilmil, Vikas Nagar, Palam Colony etc can say the status of world class City. If you are talking about Delhi than it is not all about Lutien’s Delhi, it is all about including the places mentioned above as well. So you have take care about all the places the same eye. One more than thing that is strange that honourable finance minister of Delhi is also coming from East Delhi, Where the most of general people are living. If we have not forgetten about the CM’s prior statement that East Delhi is  bad portion of Delhi’s world class map. And finance minister nothing has to do, because they don’t know how the money is coming from in common man’s pocket. They say that they will review the VAT. But one thing nobody knows that this is the govt. policy that increase the price and roll-back of least of percentage. But ultimately the govt will be in profit for example if any item’s VAT has been increased from 5% to 12.5% than if they will roll back by 2.5% than what will happen the govt is in 5% profit. So this is the logic to be in NewsPaper and also said to be that they are thinking about the common people.

At the end of this point, I can ask the question that suggest from your side that what will be the best budget for common people. I am not the people who can do that there are lot of people who are doing this better. So they will have to know that by you people.

Earth Hour-Rain and thundershowers rocked Dilli Haat

Earth Hour
Earth Hour

Rain and thundershowers rocked Dilli Haat minutes before the stage was set for the formal launch and the curtain raiser of the Earth Hour. The launch had invited everyone from Dr. R.K. Pachauri, Director-General TERI and the Chairperson of the Intergovernmnental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to Mr. J.K. Dadoo, Environment Secretary, Govt. of NCT of Delhi in addition to the host CEO & Secretary General of WWF-India, Mr. Ravi Singh. A series of talks, dance performance etc. led by Shovana Narayan had also been organised.
Intense gusts of wind and heavy rains not only disrupted the programme and the proceedings, it also made people think and realize that Nature cannot be played with and that we will definitely have to show a greater respect to the Planet. Later in the event, even as the rain only got more intense, Dr. R.K. Pachauri and Ravi Singh addressed a small crowd but so much excited of Earth Hour volunteers and enthusiastic citizens who braved the weather to come together for mitigating climate change. “Let this be a message to all of us that Nature is watching”, alerted Dr. Pachauri to the charged up crowed, before the Earth Hour countdown began, and the lights were switched off.
Candles were distributed to everyone and every effort was made by the most keen, to keep them burning and spreading the message. The rest of the show unfolded as was planned, even as the rain was a constant reminder of the actions we now need to take. Even lot of small kids who were watching the programme also very excited to light up the candle and show his support to Earth Hour for an hour.
