Going... one up

After, Chennai, Chicago and Hong Kong, it is time to go one up in London.

Headhunters - on a prowl ?

...or, heads on a roll?

People and palaces

This morning, on my way to school, a young lady stopped me and asked, 'How do I get to Sherlock Holmes Palace?'. I pointed to the small house right across the road and said, 'Intelligent people like Sherlock Holmes, don't get to live in palaces'. True?

Waiting for the bulls

Stocks have nose-dived, a 'bailout' by the bulls is the need of the hour. National Governments should spend more on education, healthcare and general well being.

Hang on for the ride ahead

As the global economy hits rumble-strips [thankfully not spike strips], either hibernate and sleep it out or bravely go out for the hunt. You are better off either way instead of grumbling over spilt milk.

Time for some change

even the Left is bathed in deep blue

Remember, remember the 5th of November?

only 25 more days to go for 26 to end!

Got change, now what?

A historic event with a futuristic impact? It is easy to claim too many things on today's event, but we must not consider this as the destination. This is one bright spot [ok, dark spot] and the world [that includes USA] needs several more.

British industries in bad weather

Jaguar Car Factory, Birmingham.

The heart and soul of the industrial revolution that changed the face of this world, are caught in bad weather. Starting from yarn, going all the way to hitech machinery, this sector is under tremendous pressure. I eavesdropped a couple of elderly gentlemen only to hear,"The industries that once defined Britain are dead and long gone, while all we have left are financial institutions(bonkers)". True, the government has bailed out the big banks [big bath?] from their demise paying Pounds 60 billions or more despite all the problems they brew. But, didnt act on protecting the local manufacturers by pitching in with a few timely millions. Negligence or selective politics? the havenots, as always, tend to be the losers.

Dont knock, push and the door shall be opened for thy entry

The days when we lived by 'da book', for some principles, with some people are passe! It is time to write your own book!
