Headlines : 25th May, Thursday

A hot day for the students conducting anti-quota protests in Delhi. Poor guys. They were sweating like Rafael Nadal ahead of a grass court match.

Here’s an irony. To protest against the 27% reservation announced by the Govt,, doctors and medical students in Delhi are planning for a ‘Civil Disobedience’ agitation tomorrow. Not much has changed in India since the 1940s. Its still a Gandhi who inspires the ‘Civil Disobedience’ movement in the country.

More on this so called ‘Civil disobedience‘. So basically what they are going to do is : The doctors in Delhi are going to be unavailable to attend patients, students are not going to attend college, AIIMS faculty members are going to take mass casual leave, and most sections of the general public are not going to obey the Govt……………To be honest, I don’t see how this is different from any normal day in the lives of these people. Why hype it up by giving it some fancy name? Might as well refer to it as Monday.

Hear this. The new Iraqi President has given a statement that his forces would have Iraq under total control by 2007. In Siachen, Manmohan Singh has stated that he has a vision for a prosperous and peaceful Kashmir…………….So who says that politicians dont have a sense of humour ?? Based on these statements, I am confident that these two can very well plan for an alternate career as a Stand-up comic after politics :-)))

Speaking after the round-table conference in Siachen, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that the government has come up with a 5-point plan to build a New Kashmir. I have my own doubts whether the plan will work. For instance, the first point in the plan says – ” Distribute free CDs of the movie ‘Roja’ to all the terrorist groups and hope for the best “.

The Government has prepared a draft proposal to bring amendments in the existing Registration of Births and Deaths (RBD) Act. According to this, Indian citizens can change their name only once in their lifetime. Viruguppi Venkata Sai Laxman better get it right this time around. He will have no more chances.

With more hurricanes expected this year, the US Govt. is working on giving
evacuation drills to the residents of New Orleans. Its been a pretty simple
process so far. Assuming that a fictitious Hurricane \’Alicia\’ is about to
hit the place, the drill begins when the Mayor of the city comes in a jeep
and shouts at the 5 people still left in New Orleans -" Were you guys
always this stupid? What the hell are you still camping in this place for?
Get your asses in the jeep and lets get the hell out of here !!!!". And
then they drive away as fast they can. Federal authorities are reportedly
satisfied with the preparation so far.
