    hi, CB

    first of all I love your writings..thks for giving us superb reads.

    Apart from these, why don’t you write something on new act of Mayawati and some other morons, who asking money from central government to implement right to education act. Can’t she use her million’s of rupees and her jewel studded accessories to do so for own children of her state. (way she usually quotes’ them). Can’t you media guys, writers and IIMA philosophers do something to make these imbecile politicians understand the pressing and vital issue of educations for growth of our nation?

    Hi, i was about to put comment that i liked your column. But when i read the comments from Tee, i stopped! I never thought of the point he mentioned. The Respect…. May be i never encountered the situation being from so called high class. But i think, i agree with him. May be the respect is none less important for them(or for that matter everyone of us) than food/money!! Showing off that the money/ powers are in her control would have made them feel better!!

  9. Sunil Sharma (Rajoriya) says:

    75 CRPF Soldier have been killed in Gurilla War
    who is responsible?
    Definitely … extreemist naxalies… but incompetent govt.(irresponsible govt. policies & lack of administration) is in root of this problem.

    Ok….here we are…so many of us….we have helplessly watched the hag show off….and make us feel like fools….

    whose money is that btw?…..isnt she answerable to any person/authority in this country…things happen in this country…we react and then we forget…is that it?…

    wat she did was outright wrong and all of us know it….why should we even justify it so much….

    cant she be made answerable?

    “the Gandhi images may add a nice touch of irony to the decor”

    FANTASTIC Remark to all those corrupt leaders in society eating our hard earned money!!

  23. Juhi says:

    It became a common practice now a days for the people to show there wealth .
    But when leaders do it gives a wrong impact to the society.while doing this they forget that they are showing their so called foolishness which is going to ruin them after sometime.

  24. Joy says:

    like if u call ur dad PAPAJI ur children will also call him PAPaJI unless taught that he is the DADAji.ur article told that the oldies r actually sending a wrong msg in our little one’s minds.Great thought,but it also seems if Mayawati was a bit little better educated she won’t be harrasing the money as she does now.

  25. athithya ponusammy says:

    ambedkar enforced on education to all that reflected in its constitution formation.that all we know. when our legilature passed the right to education.mayawathis statement is that her governmant has no money for implenting hie act and her governmet requires fund from central government.but they will have to buil statues of ambedkar all over his state and a money garland for her.
    jai hind!

    Those women who do fantasize are typically less visual in their sexual fantasies, are usually less focused on genitals, and are more likely to construct a story with the emotional feelings of a romantic encounter.

    For quite some time now, I’ve been in multiboxing and I have been searching for this mutiboxing software that will perfectly fit me. To give you a brief history, I have multiboxed a $5000 hardware setup. It was really great but it didn’t do things with the kind of precision that I needed.
