It has been a year since the Satyam Scandal broke. The new board is doing a great job and we are looking at very good times ahead. 2010 promises to be a year of positivity and hope. Yesterday, Facebook users had a very colourful news feed. Social communities can be very inspiring and make a lot of difference if we all join together for a cause. Let us get inspired by reading the wonderful posts from the Indian Blogosphere this week.
- Who : Abesh Bhattacharjee
What : My Apostille Woes and Shashi Tharoor…
Spicy : Shashi Tharoor has been in the news for various reasons. Abesh has probably the same views about government machinery as most of us have. And boy, how happy he was to be proved wrong. Abesh shares with us an experience where Mr Shashi Tharoor helped him and this was possible maybe b’coz of the social presence of Mr Tharoor. We would love to see this act of Mr Shashi Tharoor in the headlines. 🙂
- Who : Brijesh Nair
What : Desi Professors in US – Some Random Thoughts
Spicy : Many Students who go and study abroad sometimes wish that they have a Desi Professor to assist them in their project and mentor them. But not all is sunny and Brijesh has some very interesting and thought provoking thoughts on the whole issue with some personal examples to support it. Have you experienced something similar? Do let Brijesh know and help the community.
- Who : Sujoy Singha
What : Say What: Tezaab – Munna and Mohini vs Lotiya
Spicy : Sujoy in this post filled with screenshots and captions takes us back to the 80’s. Remember the film, where Madhuri Dixit stole so many hearts? In this post he takes a dig at Tezaab’s storyline and the characters in the movie. A post you will enjoy seeing and reading.
