New initiative from Govt of India

Government of India has an online Grievance forum at

The govt. wants people to use this tool to highlight the problems they faced while dealing with Government officials or departments like Passport Office, Electricity board, BSNL/MTNL, Railways etc.

So use this grievance forum and educate others who don't know about this facility. This way we can at least raise our concerns instead of just talking about the ' System ' in India.

Invite your friends to contribute for many such happenings.

Not sure if this will actually work, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

The Story of Stuff

The Story of Stuff, a 20-minute video about where Stuff comes from and where it goes. Until today, however, I’d never taken time to watch it completely.

According to the web site:
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns.

If you don't have whole 20 min, watch it in parts, later you will tempted to know for sure and you can watch rest of the chapters here.

Here’s the best part of The Story of Stuff chapter five, “Consumption”:

This is GOOD.

Best and Worst of IPL

After spending close to two months following IPL, I have few things still remaining in my mind. Its just my opinion :) So feel free to pour your opinion too.

Abbreviations Used:
Bangalore Royal Challengers: BRC, Delhi Daredevils: DD, Kings XI Punjab: KP, Mumbai Indians: MI, Chennai Super Kings: CSK, Deccan Chargers: DC, Kolkata Knight Riders: KKR, Rajasthan Royals: RR

Best and Worst

Worst- KKR,Surely KKR have the worst jersey as it makes them look weird with golden helmet and golden pads, especially those golden helmets on their head looks like they are wearing some kitchen utensil.

Best- CSK, may be I am influenced by the yellow color, which is owned by Aussies


Worst- Harbhajan was close to take away this title for slapping his teammate, but with due apologies to Harbhajan Singh, was Vijay Mallya. He paid big money for a team he later said he didn't believe in, and spoke out publicly against his captain and his players halfway through the tournament.

Best- This is the continuation of the above scenario, Rahul Dravid behaved with dignity and batted beautifully, despite of Mallya's behaviour and even as his team stumbled its way through the tournament, as happens in sport.

Team Name:

Worst- Mumbai Indians is not a good name for an IPL team because you are having so many foreign names in the list. Do you think the name Indian would motivate any of the foreign players?

Best- Daredevils suits to the image of the Delhi players like Sehwag, Gautam, Malik, Dhawan etc


Worst- BRC

Best- PK


Worst- Yuvaraj, what happened to him, he never delivered when needed the most.

Best- Marsh, he is made for 20 20

Worst- Murali, lot expected

Best- Tanvir, least expected


Worst- Laxman, he did not talk to players, actually he never spoke to himself.

Best- There is a TIE here, Warne for the way he glued the entire team and Dhoni for his ICE COOL attitude

Worth $$$:

Worst- Its Easy, DC
Best- Its Very Easy, RR
