It's all about Sci-Spo-Ele-Pol

It's all about science and sports in India More than the election time politics.

I am very happy that Prof Rao spoke openly and we need more such outspoken persons in all field. I think we have enough in economics and politics.

There is a news item which says that:

  • Bharat Ratna awardee and eminent scientist CNR Rao today had an angry outburst as he called politicians "idiots" for giving them "so little".
  • "....Why the hell these idiots these politicians have given so little for us. Inspite of that we scientists have done something," Rao said, losing his cool.

I never liked the cricket. But it is very interesting to read Sachin Tendulkar's speech.
An interesting piece by good friend titled "Should Governments hand out civilian honors?"
A bit from Tavleen Singh's article in IE: 

  • "A vision in which electricity and clean water will be basic rights and not favours from government. A vision in which poverty alleviation is given as much weight, in the formulation of economic policies, as creating a rich and prosperous India." More here.
