The March

I came across this here.

You know your rule is in deep trouble when even the Buddhist monks come out against you!

Out with the junta.

Saturday Night rant

Another weekend....another lazy Saturday....the season premier of SNL is on right now and I'm feeling lazy as an ass.

It has been a long time since i posted something blog worthy. My blogging of late has been very erratic and flimsy to say the least. Ever since i graduated and joined my job i hadn't had the time to sit down and ponder much about the things going on around me and in the world. Of course, like all people in the U.S. I'm pretty pissed off about this clausterofuck of a war in Iraq. The douche sitting in the White House still thinks that we are winning and blah blah.... Some people never learn!

What else?

People in Myanmar seemed to be pretty psyched up to get rid of the military rule over there these days ha....and let us hope that would happen sooner than later for them. And hope the International community does something substantial about this rather than making retarded speeches or wagging the sanctions stick with all mighty farce. Good luck for the Burmese!

Peace out!

Update on the flyover collapse at Hyderabad

It has now emerged that the earlier figures of 30 dead were misplaced and at least 4 people are confirmed to have died due to the collapse. Though this comes as a huge relief to everyone, it is nevertheless sad that 4 innocent people have to lose their lives because of incompetency on the part of the private and public agencies involved in the project.

I hope the government lets the officials to conduct a thorough investigation and sees to that justice is served to the victims of this tragedy.

Another Tragedy

This is just heartbreaking for me and surely for all the Hyderabadis out there. This accident happened this evening in Hyderabad.

According to media reports:
Over 30 people were feared killed and 20 injured after an under-construction flyover collapsed in Hyderabad's busy Panajagutta area on late Sunday evening. The flyover has been under construction for the past one year and it was to be inaugurated this December. 15-20 cars were trapped under the debris while rescue workers were trying to save the people stuck underneath. The other half of the flyover is barely standing at its place and may fall anytime soon, unless demolished.
I just don't know what to say. There are lot of things that people and the government of India have to ponder about. We just cannot allow this to happen all the time and we need to avoid accidents like this in the future.
