Bought and reading now - The Accidental Prime Minister. Would be a good read on the state of affairs in the government, this past decade. But then we have always known that Manmohan Singh has just been a footstool of the dynasty this past decade. All decisions were taken by Sonia Gandhi and her circle of trusted advisers and family. To quote a few analysts, in 2004, SG's charade of not becoming the PM was just that; a sham. SG kept the power, she only relinquished responsibility and accountability.

This book on the eve of #CONgress being booted out in May, is perhaps a means to absolve MMS of all the wrongs during his tenure, methinks. But then his crime is that of turning a blind eye to all the wrongs, despite holding the most powerful office in the country.

Done with the week. Chicagoland slowly warming up. People are getting out of their boring long thick coats. Have a good weekend all.

In the campaign fight for #IndiaElections2014 , #SocialMedia surely is neck and neck with mainstream media (#MSM). There are dedicated IT cells of every major party, ad agencies, party workers, loyal supporters and then the volunteers flooding the Indian SM space with messages of support. All for building up opinion among friends, families and followers.

It has been a steady offensive building up to a blitzkrieg these past few months, as the elections come to an end on May 16th. Even MSM has jumped on to the Social Media bandwagon, for airing and publishing election stories and debates. #Hashtag wars on #Twitter are used by MSM during debates and interviews. #Facebook is being used for promoting articles, hashtags playing a lesser role here. Facebook is also being used for organising and promoting interviews by MSM channels. Then there are #Hangouts on +Google+ which are being used for interviewing party candidates or for interaction with the voters, which are aired live.

Besides the major 3, there are the usual blogs, #YouTube videos, ask-me-anything (#AMA) sessions and several more ways in which the interwebs is influencing #Mandate2014 .

One important message everyone is airing is for the voters to go out and #vote . Polling numbers has been high in the first 3 phases, and is expected to be a lot better than earlier elections in the remaining 6 phases.

This election in India is being fought as much online as it is being fought in the minds of the voter and in the real world!

The Accidental Prime Minister seems to have sold out in the few places I searched. I may end up reading it. But then we have always known that Manmohan Singh has just been a footstool of the dynasty this past decade. All decisions were taken by Sonia Gandhi and her circle of trusted advisors and family. To quote a few analysts, in 2004, SG's charade of not becoming the PM was just that; a sham. SG kept the power, she only relinquished responsibility and accountability.

Power corrupts, but the prospect of losing power corrupts absolutely.

I've always wondered why India is considered a democracy, when as an outsider I think of it as a Feudal Society - not just the political class?

Good read BTW

Introduction

Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out." - Catch Me If You Can.

I see in the 2nd mouse my own struggle to stay afloat...As of this moment, I am the wannabe 2nd mouse....

The first Sushi place I have tried out in the Naperville area after moving to IL. I liked the sushi; though not the most exceptional of stuff. The ambience inside is lively. The service is a bit slow, methinks. Also, the portions are small for the price you pay. If you want good value for money, dine-in on Monday to get some specials they are running. I will continue going here to grab the quick meal once in a while because of the proximity to my home.

I am a fan of the Premium Outlet Malls. I have been to the Premium Outlets in Gilroy, Round Rock, Allen and Osage Beach. And this one. I would say it's an average among others in other cities. There are good brands. But there are quite a few missing as well. Also, parking.

One of the most aesthetically pleasing hotel rooms. Very modern interiors. And the price was unbeatable. The location cannot be more convenient - within a few minutes' driving distance to the Route 59 Metra Station, good eateries and other stores. I asked for an iron and ironing board; was provided one. Overall very pleased.

Wonderful collection and if you are an art patron, you'd love it, I think. I am not much of an art admirer myself but I have liked my visits to the place. There was new stuff to look at and learn from, both the times I was there. And then it is free. So, definitely go to this one famous attraction of the NWA area.

No doubt their service is pricey. However this location has some good personnel manning the place which is one of the reasons I liked it. The service provided was good. Getting your car looked at by Max and his team is worth paying a visit to this Firestone.

It would have been nice if it were a tad more hospitable. But besides that, it is like any other McD, food wise. Aesthetically pleasing though.

I Always eat here to kill time while at the nearby Firestone's. And otherwise too. Courteous staff and fast service. Good food. Absolutely love the Asian Salad. I usually go for the avocado lime or the honey sesame dressing. Give this place a try.
