Man of the Year - Edward Snowden

As the year is approaching towards its end, it's a right time to look at back and analyse the people who made profound impact on our lives. I personally believe, it is certainly Edward Snowden, the man who leaked the 'Leakable Privacy" documents of US Government. Now living-in-exile in Russia, Snowden is the real champion of free speech, freedom, democracy and transparency. The US Government should relent its approach of nabbing Snowden and treating him like a criminal. And after the stand-off between India and America over Diplomat's row, it is right opportunity for India to take sweet revenge by offering Asylum and correct its earlier mistake of denying the asylum.  All over the world, the free thinking people are supporting Snowden's cause and the crowd is growing day by day. Considering the change of times, the idiotic US Government should change its approach and drop all the charges against him. Let's say cheers for Snowden who gave the info that we otherwise can't able to know...

Diplomat`s arrest: India withdraws airport passes, asks US diplomats to return IDs

Ameria is unnecessarily provoked the Indian Government by arresting and striping the diplomat. The diplomat Devyani Khobragade's arrest in New York escalated the tension between the two Governments. The over-cautious America always indulge in this kind of insult. Totally forgetting Vienna Convention norms, this untoward incident happened. Joining every Indian, I too strongly disprove the American Government's punitive actions. I hope this time, Indian Government will give befitting reply.

Marissa Mayer's Apology

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer tendered her apology for the service outage which affected its Mail users this week. The internet mammoth like Yahoo shouldn't allow this to happen at all. After all a week is very long-time in the Internet world. Nowadays, the email passwords are getting stolen and service outages are occurring frequently. There was a wonderful TEDTalk available on this topic. According to that, the present day Internet is not designed for the growing demands of the future digital world. It has several weak links. So, alongside concentrating the software part of Internet, the Internet businesses should now concentrate its hardware part and improve the overall efficiency. Otherwise, these big names will lose its credibility soon.

AAP - Aam Aadmi Party - The New Rising Star

Congress was routed in assembly elections shows the emerging Peoples' Power. Congress no longer chant the Bhajan of we got Independence to the nation. Those days are over. We already entered into "Perform or Perish" world, where the ordinary Aadmi is the most powerful entity. I hope this is a eye-opener to the Indian politics. The fire that started in the Nation's capital spread across the country and wipe out the corrupt politicians. This is a good sign. Now, the ball is in Arvind Kejriwal's court. They have to prove everything and show their mettle to get the acceptance of wider audience. Thanks for the people who made this change possible. After all ballet is stronger than the bullet...

Nelson Mandela - A Leader of the World

It's the sad demise of Nelson Mandela's death is the most widely appeared topic across the world today. Following the food steps of Gandhi, Mandela fought against the racist British in his own country. Jailed for 27 years, he steadfastly maintained non-violent method to get freedom for himself and his people and finally succeeded in his attempt. Whether you like it or not, he is one of the inspiring leaders of our generation. We, Indians, share this sorrowful moment with South Africans. by Srini

Article 370 Debate

Dear All, Currently, the hot debate is going on about the article 370. Started by Narendra Modi, the media, politicians and social observers are fervently discussing about this article 370 which gives a special status to Jammu & Kashmir. Despite, Narendra Modi's intention of scoring points over his political rivals, what he suggests his really good. And why should be two India one with 370 and one without. Likewise, the same thought can be applicable for Common Civil Code and our draconian reservation system. In the name of creating political stability, minority sensitivity and secularism, the politicians are playing double game. We can appreciate Modi for coming out strongly against this matter. In spite of his tainted image, Modi's stand is laudable. Whether we going to retain article 370 or not. A debate is very much necessary. Come on after all, its democracy. Cheers, Srini

Mangalyaan's Marvelous Mars Mission

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) had just created history by lifting its Mangalyaan craft out of Earth's gravity field - a scientific milestone acknowledged by its peers. ‘Mangalyaan’ was placed in the designated Mars Transfer Trajectory in a 22-minute manoeuvre almost an hour past midnight without any hitch to tear itself away from Earth’s gravitational pull. Now starts the awesome journey of 680 million kilometers (expected time to reach is Spetember 2014). It's low-cost (ISRO spent only less than 75 million dollars (10 % of NASA's Mars Mission budget) and achieved this stupendous task. We hope crossing hurdles, Mangalyaan will reach Mars to add glory to our nation. Let's celebrate this other-worldly moment. Cheers. Srini
