Re: Trash of India .. ToI

To level the playing field and in all fairness to Indian public ... BJP should seriously consider setting up its own print/electronic media outlets. Accounts at FB and Twiter are no match for misinformation being spread by most of India's pro-clan mainstream paid media ...

BJP has a pool of talent to carry this task ... Shri M. J. Akbar is one such respected journalist.

Eid -Probably because no one is able to decide what day is the festival in advance.

Diwali is for Sikhs and Jains too..

Interestingly, one year, Good Friday was a holiday for our offshore but a working day for the US team.

Generally the rule is that there are national holidays (15 Aug, 2nd October and 26 Jan). Companies can then set their own list of Holidays. Some have different holidays for different cities, like Holi is a Holiday only in Delhi office, etc.

Re: Trash of India .. ToI

The only readable column in ToI, Speaking Tree, is now gone to the dogs.

Check the stuff underlined in red. Link to the same.

Whoever wrote that column probably belongs to the lowest form of humanity. Consider the following quote from the post,

Quote:
Revenge may be permissible, but strictly on one condition, that is, one should take revenge only from the person who has caused harm. Killing somebody else with the plea of taking revenge is the worst human crime. Both reason and religion completely disown this act.
I think there only one religion in the world that closely advocates that kind of preaching. Most religions plead you to forsake revenge and take the path of righteousness. Heck, even g'ments don't follow those paths... if they did the whole world would be a hell-hole. Maybe why there are certain regions that are indeed hell-holes... because of this particular teaching by a religion.

And there are so many other ideas in the post that are debatable... wonder if any body challenges this guy... at all

I fail to understand the closing statement in that article. How can the Taliban be expected to rebuild anything except a mountain of skulls of innocent people?

I agree with you completely. The Speaking Tree has gone to the dogs.

MJ Akbar is a pool, eh ?? That's a first. Generally, when referring to him, people replace that "p" in pool with a "t".

I could not find the underlined text in the web version.

Else, the author has written something more sensible like -
Admitting the existing realities, the Kashmiri Muslims must recognize—not out of compulsion, but, rather, willingly—that Fate has decreed for them a part of India and that they have no option but to gladly accept this decision. There is nothing at all wrong with this.

Thanks. And I thought TOIlet had changed it later. Yes. He almost means that killing non peaceful kids is fine by him.

But the rest of the article and some other statements by him indicate that he should not have meant that.
I have also seen one peaceful guy commenting on one portion which says 'Such things happen only in peaceful world' by putting incidents of school shooting in US.
