Should we let India implode?

June 14, 2012

0

The implosion  on all fronts technical, economical, social, political,academic,  is imminent in India. The question is should it be delayed with band-aid fix-its like offered in Greece or should it be allowed to implode and come out stronger although quite a few years down the line. My opinion is it should be allowed to implode. […]

Kingfisher: Where art thou

April 22, 2012

1

I don’t know why I used Shakespearean language in the title.  Maybe just got bored of the abysmal service provided by other Airline operators that this expression came out from a dormant portion of my mind which I do not usually access but accessed it now since I didn’t have anything to do. You see […]

The plea for archeology in India

Archeology in India is one of the biggest neglected fields of study. If I sit down writing adjectives describing its state (dilapidated, broke, pathetic, abysmal) I might fill a few pages of this blog just doing that. We proudly claim our historical origins and start of civilized era tracingback at least 10000-15000 years even before […]
