Searching for HCL

6 Jul

Two days ago there was unusually heavy traffic on BB. Most of them seemed to be viewing the post on the HCL Ad. In fact the only search engine term that was used on that day had some combination of the “HCL Ad”. I wonder what happened that day. Usually the most popular search term is “Kumaraswamy Affair” (have no idea what that means).

Search Terms on Wednesday:

World Toilet Summit

30 Jun

N.R. Ramesh forwarded this link to me. To quote:

New Delhi will host the World Toilet Summit 2007, a four-day international event on sanitation, in October later this year.

The summit with the theme ‘Toilet for all’ will start on October 31. It is expected to attract experts from across the globe.

I don’t want to make fun of anything (ya right !!).. but this was soooo tempting.

1) I would love to get an agenda.

2) If you are attending this conference, would you say to your friends “I’m going to New Delhi to attend the World Toilet Convention” or would you just say “I’m in Delhi for a conference”.

Heres wishing the conference a lot of success. Hope they make more “Sense” than “Sound” 😉

Talking about bathrooms, the Japanese are known for their innovations in this are. Heres an interesting article.

P.S: Its a pure coincidence that one of the categories for this post is “Tongue in Cheek”

Labor Minister’s Gaffe

11 May

Womens group are up in arms against Iqbal Ansari on his decision to ban women from night shifts. And Rightly so.

I love his comment:

I am surprised at the hue and cry. As a society, it is our duty to protect women… what is wrong with that?

Dear Mr. Ansari, these “Taliban” type measures will work in countries like Afghanistan and the likes. If you want to do anything useful. Keep your trap shut. Or better please emigrate. They could use people like you there.

People like him are hell bent on dragging this country into the stone ages.

Now the state government is doing some major “Thippe Saarsing” by saying that they will rethink.

BJP’s Karnataka Dream. Going, Going, Gone

30 Apr

I love it when I am right. I have always predicted that the JD(S) will NEVER allow the BJP to come to power. Thats how morally backward they are.

The latest news is that the Congress is offering to support Kumaraswamy so that he can retain his CM’ship. Apparently the “Son of the Son of the Soil” is now warm to that proposal, as is his father the Big “G”. The BJP will be left with the short end of the stick.

Can anything get lower in terms of morality?

Oops sorry… we are talking politicians here.. can’t use them and Morals in the same sentence. I must give full marks to the sleazos from the Congress though.

Here are my previous posts (with predictions)

BJP in power? LOL
