Extraordinary circumstances!

Some judge in Guwahati has found a flaw in how the CBI is constituted and has made this an illegal body!

But as the old adage goes - never miss a crisis! :P
So here is the golden chance to finally pass an act in the parliament enhancing the autonomy of this vital organization.

Hurry up, #Kejriwal   and #KiranBedi and #AAP!
There is never again going to be such a great opportunity to finally get the CBI laws to change - since at least for the next few hours CBI is legally not even existing! WOW!

If you have 20 minutes to spare then spend it watching this movie by Anurag Kashyap - it seems to have gone viral like anything.

Though I must admit that it was quite nauseating to watch it!

I find myself in a state of cognitive dissonance when I watch the end of the film. As much as the end may seem "right", I can't philosophically reconcile with the idea of vigilante justice. Isn't that anarchist?

Its common knowledge that these circumstances are too common in India but somehow I have neither seen nor faced or seem to know anyone who has faced such harrowing circumstances in public. I start doubting as to whether I have ever lived in India!? Or have the Indian women I have always known been too tough as people to ever share such experiences? I don't know...

Purely intuitively I have always admired Ravichndran Ashwin!

There are some people who evoke a sense of confidence from the first day you see them. You just look at them and you know that they are a class apart and can fight in the worst conditions.

How many times have you seen a no.8 batsman bat almost like an opener and get a century and win you matches!? (..and get 5 wickets!..) And not just once he has an average of ~ 40!

He is definitely one of the most intelligent cricketers India has ever seen. (...of course Dhoni is a bit of a superhuman miracle and hence Ashwin has a tough competition for the captaincy post! ;P...)

Historic photographs!

Thus a journey begins of 780 million kilometers in 300 days.

And ISRO made this freaking advanced machine was made in just 15 months!

Wish we could get day to day updates of where it is! :P

Don't my Buzz posts, Google+ posts, blog and webpage and the profile below give enough information already?
