The Central Government has ruled out any cut in the prices of petrol and diesel despite the decline in international crude oil prices. So the only thing for citizens to cheer about is the death sentence awarded to M’mad Afzal.
The mastermind behind the December 13, 2001 Parliament attack, Mohammed Afzal, will be executed on October 20 as per Supreme Court orders. He is sentenced to death mainly because he failed to kill of any of the MPs who were attending Parliament that day. PLUS, he rudely refused to sing Vande Mataram on Sep 7th. That clinched it for the judge.
On that day, he and his comrades couldn’t even get past the security outside and ended up killing 9 security personnel and injuring 16 others. Not much of a mastermind, is he?
A brand new wave of “Gandhigiri” has been unleashed by the hit movie “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”. Even the lead actor, Sanjay Dutt has been swept in by Gandhiji’s life of asceticism. He has vowed that he will not be providing any more beer or spicy non-veg food for the Pakistani terrorists living in his house hereafter.
Some good news for Manmohan at last. Sonia Gandhi has categorically ruled out having a Deputy Prime Minister in a press conference. ‘Why do we need one more?’ she asked. ‘What would Manmohan do then?’
As we all know, Team India returned home after a disappointing series in Malaysia. Today, Rahul Dravid blamed Bill Clinton for the team’s poor performance.
That’s right. He is everyone’s favourite scapegoat right now. Bill Clinton is actually being blamed for not doing enough to prevent the September 11 disaster when he was in power. The Pope has joined in and accused Clinton of not doing enough to prevent him from making that anti-Islam speech last week.
The New York City Department of Health has announced a proposal to ban all trans fats at eateries. Makes sense. You don’t want the millions of rats in the city to be facing any heart problems, right?
A bunch of Canadian scientists are now studying the Mona Lisa painting in 3-D to better understand why she is smiling in the picture. Awesome. Millions of passengers worldwide still can’t use their cellphones inside an aircraft. But I guess that can wait.
This is a PRICELESS headline. It actually reads – Teddy Bear Kills 2,500 Fish In New Hampshire.
And to think that George Bush is ignoring this and fooling around inIraq……..tsk tsk :- ))
And Al Gore, if you reading this, Teddy Bears have now killed more fish than global warming has, in the last 5 years put together. Wake up to the REAL threat dude !!!
Seriously speaking, it seems that the stuffed toy clogged the hatchery drain and hence the fish died. And what was hatchery supervisor Robert Fawcett’s statement ? “Release of any teddy bears into fish hatchery water henceforth is NOT permitted.” No kidding !!
