Obama in India


Yeah, I know, you are probably aware that Obama is here in india. Infact everyone knows that and he is here for what ??  May be – To visit the place where the 26/11 incident took place, or To sign a 6$ billion deal so that he could go back with 50,000 odd jobs , or To get the tension Off  between india and pakistan, or To Visit Taj Mahal. It Could be anything, i mean the reason which is not important to us, all that is important eventually is that he is here.

Well, I dont mind the unnecessary attention that is given to him , he is the president of United States so let him get the special attention. He gets to set out his food on a specially made Red carpet from his plan. He gets to occupy one whole floor in TAJ HOTEL . He gets whatever a King would get . But this is something i found totally unjustifiable  –

Coconuts removed in India ahead of Obama visit

In their effort to provide maximum security in the run-up to his visit on Friday, they have removed coconuts which may fall on his head from trees.

All coconuts around the city’s Gandhi museum have now been cut down, an official told the BBC.

And yeah, I forgot to mention that  as funny too 😉 .  I don’t have anything  else to say. You have any comments ??

World’s Fastest Car – Bugatti Veyron


Quite Ironic i must say , at a time when the leading car makers in india are competing hard to manufacture Cheap cars like Tata Nato and Renault’s Yeni, Volkswagen owned Bugatti  launches its fastest and Costliest car here in India – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport .

And With this release , Bugatti Veyron becomes the best in Super sports category. According to the official site, Veyron is by far the most sophisticated production vehicle , ofcourse none can match the one that Batman owns 😀 .

Isn’t She Sexy ?? 😛

This Sizzling beauty can reach a top speed of 407 Kmph.  Yes, you heard me right. You can reach 0-100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds . If thats not enough to amaze it takes just2.3 seconds to reach from a speed of 100 kmph to 0 . Bugatti Veyron’s 16 litre engine generates a whopping 1000 Horse power.

Technical Specifications:

Cylinder capacity 7993 cm³
Power output 736 KW (1001 hp) at 6000 U/min
Max. torque 1250 Nm at 2200–5500 U/min
Gearbox 7 Gear DSG
Top speed 407 km/h
Acceleration
0–100 km/h 2.5 sec
0–200 km/h 7.3 sec
0–300 km/h 16.7 sec
Fuel type Super lead free 98 RON/ROZ

Bugatti Veyron would Cost a whopping 16 Crore INR (aprx 3.5 Million $). I read in todays Newspaper that you could buy a Whole island incaribbean with that amount of money 😛 Isn’t that something 😉 ? :mrgreen:

Anyways i think Only the tata’s , the ambani’s and yeah, the malya’s would be eying on it just to have it parked somewhere along with other collectibles as i am sure there’s is no way you could drive those on Indian Roads.

First Maybach, then Harley davidson bikes and now the fastest car – Bugatti Veyron.  This actually brings us to a point where it would be quite apt to say that automobiles are now the new status symbol in India, which is fast rising in the most number of billionaires list.

 

 

WHEN TERROR STRUCK MUMBAI !!!!


TAJ UNDER ATTACK

60 hours of terror that shook not just mumbai but also the whole nation ,not to forget the other countries ,is finally over . Mumbai is free . Its not that terror is new to our country but the scale of this one in particular has left us appalled and speechless . When was the last time we were glued to our TV sets day and night changing one news channel to other . When was the last time mumbai came to a complete halt for 2 days .

The more i think about it , the more I feelsick. I mean , anyone can come to our country and kill a couple of hundred people . As a citizen of a country there’s nothing more disturbing that this . Is there any place that is secure . Anyone could would walk in to the station and go on a rampage . Five star hotels are under seige so  no point  thinking about the security of normal hotels. A complete lapse of security . Cctv footage shows two terrorist carrying guns and entering the railway station . A railway station as busy as that one has no one guarding it.What a shame!!

IT has been complete failure of intelligence  . ITs not the first time . There have been many terror attacks in the last couple of years . There’s no excuse for this .What’s the use of having such a team when they are not able to avert these kinds of attacks .

I really dont know what these terrorists are trying to achieve by killing innocent people . These inhumane bastards are out of their mind . ITs really shocking to know that the terrorist who has been caught alive says that he has no regrets in killing people . What a coward!! These guys shoot kill people without any guilt and when they are given death sentence ,human right activist come and fight for them . This is  so silly .

Pakistan taking a U-turn and refusing to send ISI cheif is not at all surprising .Infact i would have been surprised if he had come . India-Pak relations are  only going to get worse . Pakistan government always says that they will co-operate with india in removing terror but why dont they do something about the militants in the pakistan occupied kashmir (pok) .IT has indeed been proved that these terrorist were trained in that region .

Another issue i would like to mention is the sms  thats doing rounds relating raj thackeray and his MNS activists .

1.Don’t know where he is when you need him. We want him to go and save amchi Mumbai. Army, NSG commandos are not marathi manoos….why should they fight and lay down their life for Mumbaikars.

2.Where is Raj Thackeray and his “brave Sena”? Tell him that 200 NSG commandoes from Delhi (no marathi manoos, all south and north indians) have been sent to Mumbai to fight the terrorists so that he can sleep peacefully tonight in Shivaji Park. Please forward this so it finally reaches the coward bully.

I personally dint receive any message like this . Some people are infact taking the sms too personally  and feel that it has been intended towards maharashtra or mumbaikars. I ,however second their thought. I dont’ think that the message has anything any communal meaning. It is a message directed at raj thakeray and his supporters . The message is just a sarcastic way of mocking at raj thackeray and the politics he plays .Although i don’t support these type of messages , i cant accept when people say these messages show hatred for maharashtra .

Well, Only solace during these three days was to see the NSG commandos ,Marine commandos and other security personal keeping their lives on line to save others . Not to forget the fire department guys who too were present all the while .Special mention to the hotel employees who have been spoke off so greatly. Some of these people probably lost their lives trying to save the guests and hostages .

News channels did a fantastic job in bringing the live coverage of the developments going on there. I certainly do not agree when people say it was just to increase the TRP rating .. I want to ask -what do you want from them ?? They were putting themselves in danger for us ,for keeping up us updated about the issue . IF someone feels that they show the same thing again and again .They should  just change the channel rather than cribbing about it .Although now i realize that the media could have been a little responsible . (Line updated)

My heart really cries out for those who have lost their loved ones ,for those innocent people who did nothing wrong except for being in that place at a wrong time .May the people who have lost their lives, REST IN PEACE .

If terrorists think that they are weakening the country’s integrerity and unity by doing such acts then they are wrong .We as a country are only getting stronger.

INDIA vs AUSTRALIA Series – AUSTRALIA WINS the FIRST TEST


Australia proved again why it is the best team in the world, by winning the first test comprehensively by a whopping 337 runs against india. Just a week ago  i wrote   post on this series .Check this out .And now its clear that i was hoping against the hope
I am shocked .yes , i am.Not because india lost it but because it showed no signs of a fight. Losing in the fourth day that too by margin of 337 runs is not something that was expected after a good show by the bowlers on the first day.
Well, i am not in a position to  write much about this test match as i was not able to follow the match.Chennaites require set top box for viewing the match and i hate chennai for this particular reason 😡 .
Match Result: Australia beat India by 337 runs
Man of the match: Matthew Hayden
Series Status: Australia lead the series 1-0
 Australia 343 – all out & 351 – 7 decl, India 196 – all out & 161 – all out

Benazir Bhutto Assasinated


Former prime minister benazir bhutto was assasinated last night at around 6:15 pm (pakistan std time) when she was leaving an election rally in which  about 50000 workers were present.

Two people shot her from  a close range using an Ak -47 rifle when she was inside the car injuring her neck and head which proved to be fatal .After this incident the millitants  blew themselves up injuring 40 people and leaving 20 poeple dead.

AL-qaeda has claimed responsibility for this attack.

LAST minute Pictures of benazir bhutto

I cant understand some things here.

  • Why dint the govenment give a bulletproof vehicle for her .
  • What was the security guards doing when the millitants approached so close to her vehicle with a gun like AK -47
  • I  heard that after the blast no body went near benazir bhutto ‘s body  for about 10 minutes to the havoc created..Isn’t that ridiculous..??may be ,she might survived if she had been taken to hospital earlier
  • Nawab sheriff said he is boycotting the elections ..Now what purpose does that serve..??

JUST now read an article on

Bhutto said she’d blame Musharraf if killed
