Has Telugu Desam Party lost the election already?

If the way the whole drama of seat adjustment between the Grand Alliance partners is any indication of what we can expect if the alliance comes in to power, one can infer that it will be a total disaster. The Grand alliance did not appear anything but just a marriage of convenience. In the minds of many people, TDP has already lost the election even before a single vote is cast. If at all anything gets reversed it would be due to filmy drama of Jr. N.T.R just like Chiranjeevi.

  • No Common agenda/manifesto yet.
  • Not clear if left parties and TRS would join the government if the alliance wins. If they don’t join, it would be so predictable that TDP won’t stand a chance to run even for a few months (if wins, of course).
  • Just 14 more days to go, except the Movie stars Bala Krishna and junior NTR, TDP hasn’t done any serious campaigning yet.
  • Lost already many leaders to Congress and PRP, some are quite a key in many constituencies.
  • YSR’s serious criticism on political back stabbing and reversal of people friendly policies by Chandra Babu Naidu are 100% true and quite difficult to argue against.
  • Even though, Telugu Desam party over all has done lots of great things to state of Andhra Pradesh, there are so many policies that TDP under Chandra Babu naidu is now taking a complete u-turn in this election:
  • TDP always believed in Samaikhya Andhra (United Andhra). Now TDP is in favor of separate Telangana state.
  • Free electricity. Chandra Babu had been always against such populist promises and had been believed to be more pragmatic. But now, is on the reverse.
  • TDP promised abolition of liquor in the state to come to power and Babu brought liquor back to the state pretty quickly.
  • TDP started many special export zones to develop the state and has successfully instated many business friendly policies. Now opposing almost every SEZ in the name of injustice to local communities.
  • And more, free color TVs !

I will be quite surprised if TDP could garner any majority in this election. So far, Congress and unfortunately PRP are set to lead in most constituencies.

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 …

Just For Fun : India’s Super Computer

This is a T-shirt I bought almost 10 years ago that depicts the Lord Ganesha as India’s super computer. It was so much fun wearing it then as it used to grab everybody’s attention. And in my recent trip, I recovered it and wore again yesterday. It grabbed everybody’s attention as usual.Look at the mighty RAM he got. 256MB RAM.  Well it was quite a bit of RAM 10 years back. Thanks to Harish for taking a quick snap and sharing it. The iPhone he used got lot more power and memory than one the best computers of that time. That says it all.I guess, I should pull out all my T’s with messages and post it. May be myself and those around me that time could relive some of those wonderful moments.
