BJP’s Rally against Price Rise Makes Dent – on Twitter!


Tweaked from #PriceRiseRally tweets: 1. Bhishma Pitamah at #PriceRiseRally: Khud ka pet nahin paal sakta, biwi-bachchon ka kya hoga! Main brahmacharya ki shapath leta hoon 2.

Spinning Yarns to Make Undies on TV


—–1. The author asserts that all the incidents described in what follows are completely true. There is no question of any incidental resemblance with any person alive, moribund or dead as the author himself had witnessed the events described this Sunday (February 28, 2010) on the eve of Holi (click) after consuming bhang (click), which […]

A very simple reason so many students fail exams is because they copy their neighboring candidate’s answers verbatim. If teachers would only teach adequate language skills, then […]

The Monkey who sold his Fur, and became an entrepreneur <— [rhyme alert]!


I stumbled upon a very detailed transcript of interview of Madhu Koda (click), the just 38 year-old, multi-millionaire entrepreneur, who has added unheard of dimensions to the art of portfolio management.
