Coastal Corridor : Missed Opportunity?

Politics often come in the way of Development. Some times, for no reason. In the name of stopping Political corruption, this time, major political parties are blocking a huge Infrastructure project that will eventually benefit Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

Will it be a missed opportunity? Because, we are already running out of time in building our infrastructure.

Coastal Corridor is a part of monumental infrastructure development project that will build or extend :

  • 5 SEZs
  • Ports
  • Roads
  • Airports and
  • Rail

If political parties are really interested in the welfare of people and are afraid of injustice done to those land/property owners, then they must fight to arrange for proper and fair displacement and fair market value for the property involved. Not block the project itself, that will alter the lives of the very people.

The following snapshots taken from a presentation by AP PCPIR depict that this monumental project aiming to achieve. It doesn't look like just born politician Chiranjeevi, or suddenly elevated new born leaders of his party or the age old opportunist Chandra Babu Naidu, that pioneered and once stood for the very infrastructure development projects, truly understand what kind of injustice they are doing to Coastal Andhra Pradesh by blocking the projects.

The idea of SEZs and corridors was the brainchild of former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, and the same policies were being pursued by Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy too (Source: The Hindu)

Hope, people realize the importance of these projects and keep long term benefits in mind before emotionally deciding the fate of these projects. The damage has already been done, as Government revoked the GO.34 that was brought to life to study and evaluate the corridor project.

The current political climate is quite unfortunate and definitely not in the best interests of people of AP in general and Coastal AP in particular.

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?
