Who is responsible for school shootings? We are. Involuntarily


Can’t imagine how someone even at their insane best can think of opening fire at elementary kids. But its real, like many other things we thought were "shocking" and would never happen. The society we live in has evolved into a phase where what was once considered “evil” is not, anymore. Evil for one is pleasure for another, loss for one is sacrifice for another. This is real...

Air India–Fly at your own risk !


Air India’s slogan says “Simply priceless”. True that – “Simply price-less !” Remember the 2010 Flight 812 Mangalore crash? About 158 people lost their lives. Kerala court ordered Air India to pay each victim close to INR 7.5 Lakhs as compensation, apart from the other compensations declared by government. Its 2 years past now. Looks like Air India did not pay all victims. Some folks...

Crackers, Vishukani and “Kaineettam”, the two main things that top the charts. We crack a lot of crackers through the night and...

Mangalore ‘Pub Amnesia’ Incident shows how f***ed up our society is


Those video clips on TV where the girls are being beaten in public, reminds me of nothing less than the barbaric Hitler days. The only reason why this has occurred is because the people (alleged as prostitutes and immoral activists) are from the “public” and they don’t have any one backing them up. Had there been any VIP there, this wouldn’t have happened. How pathetic – Is it not ? I do have a...
