Some Thoughts and Some Feelings Aug 14

Some thought and some feelings, all mine:

Like Jet Airways pilot who slept in the cockpit allowing the plane to plunge 5000 feet said he was on a “controlled rest.” Did he realize that it could have put all passengers to permanent rest!

Like Ministers, MLAs and political leaders can issue a statement that they will break law if their wish is not fulfilled. While there cannot be a more irresponsible statement than that – it is so sad to watch a helpless Government being a bystander!

Like it is Premji vs Narayan Murthy in Flipkart vs Amazon according to newspapers. And I feel Gandhi vs Modi was Flipping vs Amazing!

Like Subrata Roy has been provided an office space within Tihar Jail complex to carry out negotiations for sale of group’s hotels. It is the safest place on earth to do business.

Like one of the sport I do not like to watch is the Women’s boxing. Even if Priyanka promotes it.

Like Virat Kohli is recommended for Padmashri award this year. This confirms the belief of many that performance during the year and reward or recognition does not have correlation!

Like “A woman is incomplete if she doesn’t have a man by her side” says Kareena Kapoor. And is she aware that some men require two women by their side?

And finally this: Families are going out of town this long week-end. And that marks the beginning of festival season.
