Tracking Andhra Politics : Think Local. Act Local.

“Think Global and Act Local” is a well known business line, that underline the importance of acting local in order to stretch a business to global levels. Going global has been a dream for many businesses. So it fits in well.

You know lot about State, National and World Politics. But do you know what are the key issues in your City?

Most probably, answer to that question would be, ‘not quite’. When it comes to democracy, we must always think Local and act local. Too often, Politicians blow issues out of proportions and make simple differences large election issues, and many a times, they become deciding factors in elections.  So contrary to principles of Democracy and Swaraj, quite often Politicians set the agenda for you. They define what are your issues. They convince you that you must act on them. Act on them alone. Because, they don’t know what your real issues are.

If you care for Swaraj, you Must act local.

No media (News Papers or TV) or most blogs want to focus on local issues. As they will limit their reach. The new web community at Yes To Politics let you build and organize your community at a level that make sense to you.  It will let you create a community at City, Constituency, District or around a party. If you really not into politics at all, why not fight for a cause that you really believe in. You can create an action group as well.

Build an active local community. To realize the fruit of democracy, we must think local and act local. Build your own community around your own City, Constituency,District, a Political party or fight for a Cause.

Start a local community today and you decide what matters to your community. Track what matters rather than consuming every thing that is thrown at you.

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.

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?
