A Sadist In The Making.

Enjoying cruelty is a pleasure to many. Imposing impossible targets is a rutheless game practised by many. Withholding rightful share , is a delinquent practise by many. Piling up scorching mockery is a favourite pastime for many. Spitting out venom is a enamouring sport for many. Hitting with sharp taunts is a best formula for many. Making others sad , is an active fun for many.

What to call these wicked  entities? How to address these irreverential code of conduct?  Where to encircle these ignominous individuals?Why they do such atrocious  renditions?How to constrain these incorrigible advents?

The sadistic outcome and  emergence of spontaneous taunting trend  make the normal existence a gullible discipline. The eventualities ,of these callous emulation  are awesome and ferful.The targets of these offensive bouts, become a breakdown patients. The rebuff collapses their physical fortitude. The mental stoicism slips to the oblivion. The financial progression is nullifed.

The machieavillain revels in mirth, seeing his kith wallowing in penury. He makes merry ,while his kin meanders in slander . he jokes ,at the expense of close relatives plight. He indulges in lavish spending ,while his siblings count their necessities. He rides high , while his friend toils hard. His incandescent jottings strangle the near ones defense. His arrogance quell the humility of the beloved. His terminal disposition deranges the tranquil mind. His splendid deference slaughters the solemn serenity.

The  ungrateful emolument of sadism should be eschewed . The disgraceful impression of cruelty should be dismissed from  society. The torrid torment and the sordid reminiscence are to be taken up as a cause of vital involvement, by setting up a counselling tribunal ,thus enabling a trigger to erase the resounding frenzy and embellish a circulation of contentment and comfort.

DMK dissatisfied.

The DMK , a regional party from Tamilnadu , has won 18 seats in thee Lok  sabha elections. The party is demanding 9 ministerial berths. A very high bargain. Half of its MP’s would be occupying the cabinet levels. The issue was the headlines of the National newspapers

What a cheeky ambition! What a tall claim!

The congress , had a long parley with the DMK squad, and finally accepted to give 7 allotments. Half heartedly , the DMK big wigs agreed. Then after deliberation with top leaders, the congress came out with a minor alteration, that of 6 .The DMK refused to accept the new agenda. The parleys worked out a failure . The DMK tracked back to Chennai.

The disposition of this regional party does not have a pleasant significance. There should be a limit to everything. There should be a reason for demand. There should be a rhyme for bargaining.

Rationality escapes man’s mental stature when it is convened by power. The addiction for power, and money is so overwhelming, that the analytical faculty gets effaced.  Taking a right abou turn on such issues , makes them a laughing stock,questions their intentions and rummages their credibility.To seek a natinal accredition , the party has to give out a reasonable inclination. Geting into central politics would sharpen their image and they can perform  in the mainstream , thus enhancing their image and glory. They could also strenghten their party by and improve their State’s infrastructure,and provide promising projects to Tamilnadu, so that the economy of the state would augument, the finances would shoot up, and the fcilities would have a run.

Ignoring these advantages, the Party has withdrawn from joining the government. The petty thought prevails over the idealitic theory. It is the narrow theme of party that  obsoletes the broader perception of the nation. It is the conceited liking for money that has overshadowed the welfare of the people , who have elected them.

It is a collossal loss to the  electorate  and to the nation. A grim smugly air of disappointment prevails

Political Volcanoes

Volcanoes erupt emitting fire and heat. They let out gas ,hot molten rock ash.

The political volcanoes of  recent times, are  the Taliban in Afghanistan, the Liberation Tigers in Sri Lanka, the Iraq conflict ,to name a few.

The Talibans ,are a ruling faction Of Afghanistan. Their rule was conspicuously marked for the treatment of women. The intervention Of U. S added fuel to the fire. There is an excessive case of damage ,emphatic turmoil , and unnerving deaths.

The Liberation Tigers Of Eelam, as the  Tamils of Sri lanka, term themselves . are fighting for a separate country based on the language. They had relentlessly been fighting for  33 years. What started as a demonstration for equal rights , has crystaslised into a controversial military hampering.In the years , there was a large scale exodus to India , Canada, Britain , France an Malaysia.There was also a predominance of casualties on both sides,  that of life, buildings and peace.

The Sri lankan  volcano has erupted finally with the death of LTTE  leader Prabhakaran.It must have been a gruesome confrontation. The people of the island crave for normal life . Not a day passes without the sound of the guns.

The  Iraq war has many conspiracy theories.George Bush invaded Iraq , for combating terrorism and also for U.S dominance over oil. The second reason may sound erroneous, but there is a little truth also. The war , has sacked Saddam Hussein, has disturbed the tranquillity  of the region, and has resulted in enormous bloodshed.

Political Volcanoes  are much more severe than natural Volcanoes. Nature’s fury is beyond our control. But this man made aberrations could have been easily halted , in their initial stage , if the concerned , had considered liberalisation. Letting a fair deal is  a sign of understanding, a signal of  compassion and a significant reaction to violence.

A smile litters the mind. A sincere attempt reinforces the foundation. Swelling pride and serpentine endeavours have  shrouded the  frequent negotiations. The net outcome is bloodshed.

The Best Quench Thirster

Beat the heat with this simple beverage. It is the best, and cheap concoction , that can be prepared at home in a few seconds.It suppresses dehydration, and  rejuvenates the body .

A small quantity of tamarind has to be soaked in water for a few seconds. Then extract the juice ,to the full. Add  powdered jaggery, and ginger extract . Flavour it with  finely powdered cardamom. Chill it. If you do the preparation in a mud or clay pot, the effect will be superb.

The scorching heat, makes you mad. it drains you off of all your energy. It  renders you waned and exhausted, The chronic perspiration will drive you out of tune. The fatigue  compels you to sit at home. They induce you to utter grunts and  grudges . The body starts aching for no reason whatsoever. The mind loses its repertoire. You become a sneaky snail, a spent buff, a lethargic entity, and a useless brat.

Such a  kind of uncompassionate  disintegration could be well brought into focus by takina  asip of  the prescribed drink. It soothens your dry throat, cools your tract, cleanses your intestines, kindles your kidneys, emulates  the blood flow in the arteries and refills the lost water content in the body.

A wholesome consumption of the  reverberating mixture will wrench wonders to the body and the soul. This is a grandmother’s recipe for summer . It is aptly called as Panakkam.The tamarind juice  acts as a  cathartic,astringent,laxative, and refrigerant . The ginger extract relieves nausea, vomiting,and mitigates arthritis pain.Jaggery is called as medicinal  sugar.It clears lung and throat infection and is a rich source of iron.Flatulence and indigestion are expelled from the system., by consuming cardamom , which  also acts as a stimulant. 

Santhamu lethu, saukiyumu lethu . goes the maxim.

True , external factors like  horrid weather sucks the  body’s temper, which in turn forces you to act tangently, which leads to a sickness and unpleasantness. The permanent cure for such irritable syndrome is in this panakkam.

A Breathtaking Rise.

Indian Share market had an astonishing recovery on 18/May/2009.It was not a mere jump, but a high jump which baffled Olympic winners who set new records. It is an all time wish that this high jump should also embrace the long jump . They should go hand in hand,The  high and the long should supplement and complement each other. Sustenance , should be vitalised.Nevertheless ,the escalation alone would presume a slithering showcase.  

The markets were closed ,as the entirety was dumbfounding. There was mirth and joy, thudding and thumping, revelling and rejoicing.A trader , who had stocks worth 25 lakhs, a year ago , saw them tumble  gradually to the level of ten lakhs. The ten lakh status was more or less maintained, just oscillating between  nine and eleven lakhs. On Monday , there  was a speedy spurt. It rose to 15 lakhs. The trader , who was downcast all these months , had a seducing satisfaction.

A stable government has brought this cheer. Stability, includes, steadfastness ,continuance,constancy and character of purpose.The election mandate has brought with it a sincere companion , that of stability.

This firm  exposition to disintegration is a value added product. This consistency is a predominant quality ,a precursor to economic progression. The progression will not be constrained to arithmetic enlargement  but push in a geometric extension.!8/May/2009 , marked a sign of reverse trend in the market. The almost static, a depleting market showed significant advance.It  was a  remarkable rejoinder to the  election manifestation.

The spread of gloom got dissipated giving way to a blooming evaluation.A knock of cheer and a click of gaiety , cloaked the country. 19/May/2009, dawned with an expectation of a sensitive trend. The carry on was evenly poised and equally eased. The long timers , gained momentum. The outsourcers saw a slip. The rupee also  has started its forward march, Gold ,sharpened its glittering with a marginal rise. Wedding season is on the calendar . The Indian craze for the shining yellow metal will be fine tuned.Silver is walking close with its sibling. Crude ,the  country cousin of these precious metals, is making waves..

The mid half of 2009, augurs well, with steep climb in stocks . Economy is , straightening up.Industry has to take a headway plunge into the well being. Unemployment will  in course of time diffuse like morning dew. Real estate , which perceived  a sluggish slump .will peep out  and espy greener pastures.

Looking from all directions, I am able to conclude that  franchise, or putting it rudely ,the vote of the  poor man has reinforced prosperity. The politician ,should understand the value of the rights, should deliver good to the  people ,who have voted him to power,and stop seeking personal gains.

The whole system seems to be extremely paradoxical . The methodology exhibits severe irony. The game of scapegoatism should be halted. The mobility of simple faith , blind trust and ignorant entreaties should not be misconstrued. A plain sheet of transparent governance should be the motto of the Congress led Government.

Karunanidhi in Wheels

The Lok sabha elections have given a vivacious jump to the ailing head of Tamilnadu. Known for his oratory, and astute statesmanship, Karunanidhi has proved himself as a veritable father too.He has assigned the state to his second son Stalin, the central minister ship, to his eldest son Alagiri, thus keeping the family safe from the rife  of sibling in fights. Alagiri ,has not contested so far, but now has emerged successful with thumping majority. His flamboyant ways should get tempered ,as he is about to assume the role of  Minister,and Karunanidhi is insisting that an important portfolio should be given to his son.

The elderly statesman, does not lie content wit this alone. He is demanding a position for his nephew, Dayanidhi Maran and also a junior status to his daughter Kanimozhi.A beautiful partition, has been accomplished. Even the emperors and Kings would not have executed  so meticulously.History tells us of  quarrels, feuds and upheavals. Son killing father for power, brother  murdering brother for kingdom, nephews striking against uncles for the throne, and conniving , scheming behind the curtains ,thus causing a compulsory threat to the ruler.

Karunanidhi, a poet himslf, and a voracious reader had made a research of such extraneous incidents, analysed the piquancy of the problems, deliberated on the confiscations,and drew a game plan this year. Physical discomfort , did not deter his mind set. On the contrary , the sickness has invigorated his acumen.He quietly decided to pitch his tomboy Alagiri for the Parliament election. He was fully assured , that this offspring  of his will  by hook or crook will win ,if allotted a seat. He has won,much to the relief of his soft natured brother..The stage has been set. karunanidhi ,has played a pivotal role.Till now,his game has worked .

Is this tale not amazing? Is it not more fantastic than a fairy tale?

Long ,long ago, so long ago, there lived a king, so opens the fairy tale. Our fascinating story opened eight six years ago, when the child named karunanidhi was born to Anjagam of Tiruvarur.The humble household has given to the world a man with powerful eloquence,  a poet with a mastery over Tamil, a prose writer of merit, ,an erudite politician, a shrewd businessman, who has made tonnes and tonnes of money in politics. He  has cashed on his ailment and infirmity. As every  fairy tale ends , they lived happily ever after, our story also winds up with a  similar ending, that Karunanidhi and his family will live immensely happy hereafter, in pomp and splendour.

Debt Recovery Tribunal Of India

The Debt Recovery Tribunal Of India , DRT in short, has been biased in resolving the cases. It has not held a balanced view, nor taken a juxtaposed decision in most references. It has all along been the voice of the banks and financial institutions,however much the defaulting companies have a strong  base and just arguments. I used to wonder , then why this body has been set up , with branches and with officials picked from the judiciary and Banks.The enormous expense incurred due to the formation of this tribunal could have been avoided. The representation of the institutions ,to this tribunal, is just an eye wash, and a mere time consuming tactics.

My sincere advice to the companies is never become a defaulter, if at all you slip into negatives, try to pay the amount that which the bank demands , and come out honourably. Do not wait for any mercy, any compassion, any consideration. The lenders never will , nor the tribunal ever would. Arguing the case , is an additional burden to the already battered company. By burden , I mean , the finances and the mental turmoil.

A latest new clipping , brought ,to light  .discrepancies of a case settled. The central Bureau of investigation, has taken action against the erring officials. The Bank has claimed an amount, compensating to the value of the security. The DRT recovery officer, has undervalued the security and settled thes case. This is the complaint of the bank. The bank feels that the officers of the tribunal must have been bribed by the defaulter. .It may be a correct assumption, or may be a false statement. We should not make comments , as the matter is in the court.

Well, will the Central Bureau of investigation take a similar step, if the affected company puts forth an accusation?If the company also tells that the deciding authority has had underhand dealings with the bank,so the case has been given a wrong direction ,what will happen? The issue would have not come to the table,and would have been thrown into the drain.

The Presiding Officer, the recovery officers, the inspectors , should have a penchant for truth,,a valid discretion for merit, a disdain for illegalities and a strength to shun nefarious activities.

Let us wait for the dawn of truth and justice.
