Politics : Will LokSatta and Praja Rajyam Unite?

That is a big question and our answer as of today is NO.

Lok Satta is formed on the basis of sound principles and deep understanding of people and their issues. Lok Satta also defined a list of 50 promises defining the issues and how it promises to solve them.

Praja Rajyam is still to define what it is and what it want to deliver.  We believe, the motivation behind Praja Rajyam is power and money in the name of public service. ( LokSatta motto is clear and distinct from mere public service, it is more of empowering People). Most importantly, no body knows at this point, how it want to deliver.

LokSatta has members that look to believe deeply in its principles and is completely Caste or community agnostic.  They are common people just like next door neighbor, but with strong belief in principles than political muscle.

So far, people who are joining Praja Rajyam party are Chiranjeevi's friends and leaders from Kapu community, and politicians of the same old age beliefs and principles of power, leaving the 'think tank' more 'Caste' colored at this time.

The Lok Satta is not opposed to electoral alliances with other parties, but will not seek tie-ups at the cost of its basic ideology and agenda, president Jayaprakash Narayan told the executive committee here on Monday.

According to a press release issued by the party, Dr. Narayan said power was only a means and not the ultimate end of the party. It would fight the elections on its own, if necessary. However, it was prepared to join hands with others on the basis of a minimum programme.

The meeting was attended by members of the party’s political, organisational and executive committees. Some suggested an alliance with a national party while others wanted a tie-up with the newly-started Praja Rajyam of film star Chiranjeevi. The party decided to focus attention on the organisational elections between September 15 and November 30.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
