The idiot on one side says that Indians work for cheap and on other says we earn more and that is the reason why Indians are able to afford big cars. I think he is a trailer trash in bred red neck from alabama.

ek post mein pure thread ki vaat laga dali...


the concern is blogs like this start affecting even rational people after a time. thats the sort of thing that the likes of trump exploit.

so, how do we show that Indians are hard working? perhaps posters advertising medicine for carpel tunnel scattered around the park? posters could articulate the carpel tunnel happens because of working on keyboards for loooooooonnnnnnnggg duration and point them to medicines/exercises etc....

I can bring my merc... but I usually take my Odyssey for kidnapping expeditions. It will be easier to bundle you up in the back... and go on that longgggggg drive

Sab khairiyat Should be. It is just an ID. Wonder what can go wrong

It is a tough policy... but I can live and abide by it. But remember the sub-clause. You ain't cooperating, you get a knock on your head. Remember that. Same goes for me too... though you may not have an Odyssey.

Msshmaanja tai, nothing like that. Sometimes I just do not address any echan... just not needed.

It is rumoured that Tolstoy hated Shakespeare.

Excerpt from an essay attributed to Tolstoy:

I remember the astonishment I felt when I first read Shakespeare. I expected to receive a powerful aesthetic pleasure, but having read, one after the other, works regarded as his best: “King Lear,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Hamlet” and “Macbeth,” not only did I feel no delight, but I felt an irresistible repulsion and tedium, and doubted as to whether I was senseless in feeling works regarded as the summit of perfection by the whole of the civilized world to be trivial and positively bad, or whether the significance which this civilized world attributes to the works of Shakespeare was itself senseless. My consternation was increased by the fact that I always keenly felt the beauties of poetry in every form; then why should artistic works recognized by the whole world as those of a genius—the works of Shakespeare—not only fail to please me, but be disagreeable to me! For a long time I could not believe in myself, and during fifty years, in order to test myself, I several times recommenced reading Shakespeare in every possible form, in Russian, in English, in German and in Schlegel’s translation, as I was advised. Several times I read the dramas and the comedies and historical plays, and I invariably underwent the same feelings: repulsion, weariness, and bewilderment. At the present time, being desirous once more to test myself, I have, as an old man of seventy-five, again read the whole of Shakespeare, including the historical plays, the “Henrys,” “Troilus and Cressida,” the “Tempest,” “Cymbeline,” and I have felt, with even greater force, the same feelings—this time, however, not of bewilderment, but of firm, indubitable conviction that the unquestionable glory of a great genius which Shakespeare enjoys, and which compels writers of our time to imitate him and readers and spectators to discover in him non-existent merits—thereby distorting their aesthetic and ethical understanding—is a great evil, as is every untruth. Although I know that the majority of people so firmly believe in the greatness of Shakespeare that in reading this judgment of mine they will not admit even the possibility of its justice, and will not give it the slightest attention, nevertheless I will endeavor, as well as I can, to show why I believe that Shakespeare can not be recognized either as a great genius, or even as an average author….
