- Who : Ulaar
What : The curious and unexpected affair of Anna the Hazare
Tangy : Vishy is a person who is off TV news for around 3 years and follows up all news on the web. The recent news in discussion is of Anna Hazare, his fast and the proceedings of the Jan Lokpal Bill. He accounts his learnings from the various articles he has read and gathered information from on this subject.
- Who : Restless Quill
What : Indeed, a mother for all seasons
Tangy : What do you feel when you see a child in pain? If you are not a mother, then probably you won’t feel the way a mother does. The pain she feels when she sees her child in grief is more or less the same when she sees another child in the same or worse situation. The emotion of a mother is different from others. TRQ is one such mother. A thoughtful read.
- Who : Passionate Goof
What : The Culture Versus Person story
Tangy : A question to ponder upon – How do you define Indian culture, what do you think is a culture specific thing that should be imbibed in a child? Parents staying with their kids abroad many times would come across this dilemma. Aren’t the values of respecting elders, helping people around you, etc., the qualities of a nice person despite the culture they belong to? Then why are these often termed as Indian cultural values?
- Who : Anand Krishnamoorthi
What : Informed Speculation (to kill time until counting)
Tangy : While the pundits and voters of Tamil Nadu wait with bated breath for the election results to prove any of our pet theories right (or not), I am still waiting for that one economist to hypothesize the stimulus powers of cash in the hands of the spenders, says Anand. Elections, speculations, cash-for-vote and more such in this post! Read on!
- Who : Madhusudan Katti
What : Tigers Are Less Important Than Warblers
Tangy : This is what Madhusudhan wrote 15 years ago as an essay and later got published as an article in magazine, re-titled as ‘Are Warblers Less Important Than Tigers’? He reproduces the article in this post. Do have a read and think how you can help save these endangered species. Spread a word about them. Have a read.
