Who will win?

Tomorrow is the 2nd phase elections in India and Assembly elections few states of India including Andhra Pradesh. There is money, alcohol and power playing role in this election as well. When it comes to Andhra Pradesh, Y.S.R wants to be king again and it was kind of sure few weeks before. But as we progress towards the elections there are various factors that are looking like working against Y.S.R. Personally I would prefer chandra babu to be chief minister of Andhra Pradesh. He is a good administrator and knows how to extract work from every employee. At present Govt offices are not running properly. No one cares to attend to citizen requests. Every where (or most of the places) corruption has become very common phenomenon. If Y.S.R wins again, state will go bankrupt without any doubt. While I am not happy about the COLOR TV scheme by chandrababu, because it is still kind of luxury to have color TVs and is not a common need for the people. Instead if he has promised something like R

Drinking License

It might look like nonsense but this idea has flashed into my mind few weeks back and its keep coming, so that i could record it. Most of the Indian middle class, poor segment people are affected by the bad habit of drinking often causing disturbances in the family and also heinous crimes. If you look at the real issue here is that, people are drinking at the cost of the family. If you have lots of money and drink occassionally it is fine but if you do not have enough money and put all your daily/monthly earnings into buying some more alcohol, it doesn't look fair at all. So there must be some control by the state and one solution possible is issuing licenses for drinking. Well, the idea is that every BAR and WINE shop should be automated and every purchase should record the drinking license of the customer. Like PAN card or Credit Card, every person who is interested to drink should apply to the Government for drinking license, based on the economic conditions of the applicant he

Election commission websites are down

Yes, If you are an admirer of IT applications at Govt departments, then you are for disappointment when you see the election commision websites are not accessible or facing technical problems. There was a link for searching latest updations into the voterlist (as of 30th march 2009) it actually is just redirecting to another site called . This link worked as of yesterday and supprisingly it stopped working from yesterday evening (as my neibhour says) and i see this website not at all accessible. I tried to ping it ( with no luck. Then i searched on election commission of india website. there is a search option available but then it throws up technical errors. Also it is prompting me enter credentials. Now see the condition, for the enthiastic voters there is no easy way of getting their polling booth number/name and whether his/her name is there in the list (especially if you have applied for voter aft

My Dream Government*

Chief minister : Mr. Chandra babu naidu Revenue : Mr.Rajesekhar Reddy Finance : J.P Cultural : K.C.R Youth Affairs : Chiranjeevi Auditing : Raghavulu and Narayana Won't it be good to see all our leaders sharing the responsibility rather than fighting. if they work sincerly for 10 years, I am damn sure our state will be on par with developed nations.

Let us win

I some how have gut feeling that our guys in politics (should we call them leaders?) are not up to the mark (most of them, with few exceptions). But then we need to elect someone, so we need to choose the better one among the bad guys. It is little difficult job. I went to GHMC Rajendra Nagar cirlce office to get updated vote list of my colony (I am the General Secretary of Sri Venkateswara Enclave, Upparpally), but I didn't get the list. MRO said they will distribute the list to political parties and i need to get it from them. There was one political party leader who assured he will get a copy to me. We spent lot of time in that office looking over the paper bundles if there is a list (numbers between 79 to 85 ) of our colony residents. But of no use. There are too many of them and I was not able to figure it out. This morning,I visited One Mr. K.S.Rao who is owner of a house in my colony, He told me he never voted in his full life time. (He is a retired engineer). His reason, o

Indiatoday book club lottery - a 419 cheating

It is kind of 419 cheating by India today book club. In the name of a lottery of 60 Lakhs, they are selling books. If you buy books from india today book club, then you will become elgibile for this lottery. What is more, they say you will get 12k worth of gift vouchers for hotel and air tickets. Actually it is a cheating because the gift vouchers are not at all useful. read the following mail chain. I would have not felt it as cheating if they have not told me about 12k worth gift vouchers. When you say gift, what do you expect? gifts are supposed to be free and delivered at home, but in case of ITBC (India Today Book club), It is altogether different. Suggest me what kind of legal action we can initiate against ITBC/India Today to stop this 419 cheating.

Auto Riskhaw - AP 13 V 5336

No, the title is not about another movie in Indian film industry. This is the number of a Auto Riskhaw that troubled me with hell lot of smoke that it is releasing. It actually hides visibility of the road some times because of the dense smoke it is releasing. I chased the auto, asked the driver to take side and stop. he obliged. I asked him in Telugu, why are you driving an auto with this much of smoke troubling everyone on the road. he said he doesn't know Telugu, so then asked the same in Hindi with my limited knowledge. He says it is the problem with LPG. I told him he must rectify the problem before coming onto the road and it must be in garage not on the city roads. he was pretending as if the problem started just few min before and he cannot leave his customer on road. Its a big lie. I usually stop 1 or 2 vehicles every month that irritate me too much with smoke. You know all our lives are at risk because of the greedy nature of few vehicle owners. I already tried raising t
