Plan fails to take off Article Published in Gulf Today on 30.April.11,(197).

I wanted to wish a friend bon voyage as he was planning a trip to his son’s place.

On the departure date, I was shocked to see him sitting at home and reading a newspaper. “Man proposes, airline disposes,” was his caustic reply. Apparently, the airline staff had gone on strike.

Letter Published in The National,UAE On 27.April 11. I welcome you article, Police arrest India’s Commonwealth Games chief (April 26). Ever since this scam was perpetrated and exposed, justice has been needed. Even though it came late, it is nonetheless welcomed by the people of India. A vast country like India can not afford to loose this much money and prestige.
Every Indian is suffering with inflation, high costs and other day to day problems. Corruption and scams are more visible, and thus more harmful, in this sad state of affairs.

CWG CHIEF ARRESTED Letter Published in KhaleejTimes,UAE
27 April 2011

The news article, ‘Top Organiser of India’s C.Wealth Games Jailed’ (KT, April 26 ),was nice. A popular TV channel brought up these Commonwealth Games allegations first and which were later followed by the exposure of many other scams.

At last the authorities have arrested the key men of this huge scam. Bypassing the rules and favoritism are on the main charge sheet.

A country like India with a vast population cannot afford this heavy loss.

This scam was the talk of the town a few months back. Today, because of globalisation and the media watchdog corruption in all areas is more visible. It is truly a sad state of affairs.

Letter Published in The National,UAE on 20.April.11. Hatching a plan to stop the pirates (April 19) was interesting to read. Recently Somali piracy has become more visible and alarming. This is mainly due to the internal problems of Somalia which should be tackled by the government. I applaud the UAE’s initiative in hosting a high-level international conference on the issue of piracy and its monetary support to stabilise peace in the region. Piracy is a global threat. This is an important issue that should be addressed immediately.

After 18 months, I entered the UAE last fortnight and witnessed the vast developments in Sharjah. My purpose of visit was to meet old friends. Having spent 16 years in the beautiful emirate, I had seen lots of progress, particularly in transportation. Commuting from Sharjah to Dubai has been made easy. I travelled in the luxurious Metro and saw the tallest tower. My old friends were happy to see me and I cherished every moment in the wonderland. Now I am back in India, but my heart is still in the UAE.

It is very unfortunate ,that the Veteran Anna Hazare's fasting was not given any impact to our Govt was sad and painful.The support he is getting from all walks of life should be applauded.The Lok pal bill was pending for more then 42 years ,and the Corrupt Govt was not interested to pass it was very sad .Even after Independence for more then Six decades ,this important Bill was not taken care by the Congress Govt,indicates the corruption attitude.We are talking only Gandhian way ,but not following was shame and unacceptable.God only has to save us.

This week I heard a lot of commotion at around 1030pm near my house in Chennai. Worried, I opened the door and saw a couple of people bursting firecrackers.

It was then that I realised they were celebrating India’s cricket match victory against Pakistan. “This is a victory of the sportive spirit of both the teams and diplomacy,” I told the crowd. I was happy when they nodded in agreement.
