Hats Off to Indian Security Force & the Media

The terror strikes…and India is assaulted once again. The commercial capital of the country undergoes the scrupulous and well orchestrated dance of terror. The pride of Mumbai…The Taj attacked along with Oberoi Trident & Nariman House and other locations …… and large number of innocent people taken as hostages and killed. Indeed a dozen or two terrorists changed the entire state of affairs of Mumbai. The greatest attack till date, not only has shaken Mumbai, but the entire country is under shock. Indeed we are so unsafe and only at the mercy of the attackers…At this long hours of ordeal, the efforts exhibited by the Media men and most importantly the Indian security force (NSG & Marcos) is highly commendable and laudable who could save the lives of the hostages.. (We don’t leave any stones unturned to carp the security force and media personalities)… Wonder what Raj Thackeray has to say regarding the whole episode..I take the opportunity through my blog to thank and congratulate them..Hats off to you!!

May God give strength to the family members who lost their dear ones while saving the lives of innocent people.

Will this BIG BOSS ever end?

The nonstop insane acts of the characters of the so called house of Big Boss does not seem to end even after the "winner" been declared on 22nd Nov, 08. I understand when a new channel 'Colour' was launched almost 4 months back, they required a masala program to market their medium, not to forget the TRP tricks..and after the visual treat the channel has given to the viewers for 3 months,the remaining channels on Indian Television (even the prestigious news channels) cannot stop but discuss the so called 'milestones'(wonder what were those) achieved by the winner Ashutosh and the sacrifice done by other inmates so that he wins and blah blah...even till today, i. e. on 24th Nov, 08. Even a mega event HT Leadership Summit (Nov 21-22, 08) held in the Taj failed to arrest the media time and space. I fail to understand whether this is the taste of entertainment of modern Indians? or The media guys are having dearth of stories to keep their audience captive?? And to my utter surprise, even a prestigious daily, the Times of India very benevolently donates space and religiously provides a wide coverage of the " acts " of the inmates. At times I ponder, do our university toppers or those intelligent boys & girls who top the CAT or IAS manage to acquire such extensive coverage for 3-4 days in national network / national dailies..
