Vijay Mallya won five heritage items that belongs to Mahatma Gandhi steel-rimmed spectacles, a pair of sandals, a Zenith pocket watch, an eating bowl and a plate in an auction by AntiquorumAuctioneers in New York for $1.8 million. Indian government tried its best to stop the auction and also offered to purchase these at the reserve price as it can’t participate in an auction. After rejecting the conditions put by James Otis Indians lost hope of bringing these things back to India. But the most passionated business man Vijay Mallya brought them back to India.
Few years back in 2004 Mallya had brought sword that belongs to Tippu Sultan from an auction in London fro Rs 1.5 crores. At that time it was considered as a political drama as he was leading Janata Party in election. Now it is completely dead and there is no sign of bringing it back to active politics. Even though he used the sword for his campaign it did not do any magic. He could not make his party win even a single assembly seat.
Now winning of auction of Gandhi memorabilia can not be just considered as a symbol of status. It is now attached to patriotism. Janata party is not there in politics. Mallya is always welknown for his fashionable habits. From horse race to Kingfisher bikini callender he is always shinmes as a business celebrity. Gandhiji was against alcohol. He always used to tell India should be alcohol free. But the liquor money is now used to bring Gandhi memorabilia back to India!!
It was one thing which made bjp distinguished from other political parties was not involving in hereditary or family politics like Congress. BJP always opposed hereditary political play of congress and JDS, also made this matter as a campaign issue. BJP always condemned Nehru-Gandhi(not Mahatma Gandhi) family for making politics a family business. They used to tell even a dog from Nehru family will be accepted a Congress leader. Rahul Gandhi or Sachin Pilot like youngsters are leaders of the party just because of their care of addresses. Yeddyurappa named Janathadal secular party as party of father and son. That is true too. Father H D Dewe Gauda is the national president, son Kumaraswamy is a state chief, another son Revanna is district leader, daughter in law Anita is an MLA, another daughter in law Bhavani will enter soon. So BJP had campaign tool.
Now? BJP lost a campaign tool. B Y Raghavendra, son of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa; Shivakumar Udasi, son of C M Udasi; Shantamma, sister of state minister Sriramulu; Ramesh Katti, Brother of Umesh Katti are given ticket to contest in lokasabha polls. Let me ask a question, will you recognise any of them if I remove ‘son of’ kind of addresses? Nobody knows who are they by their names, even the party workers. Yeddyurappa promised in front of the media that his son should not contest at any cost. I did not see his reaction after the ticket given to his son. Any way, he first is a politician, later a BJP leader, then a CM. Criticisers tell- being a young party BJP had no room to play family politics. Now time has come for leaders to introduce their family to politics. Family politics comes into picture only whena party is in power. BJP is in power now in Karnataka. So leaders wants their family to share that power.
Even today I admire BJP for its national level leaders not to play family politics. L K Adwani could have made their children head of the party somewhere. Sushma swaraj could have easily braught her whole family to politics. Late Pramod Mahajan could make his brother a leader, but nobody from their family in politics. They never encouraged family politics. BJP had, has batchular leaders. Narendra Modi can never bring his family to politics. There are many leaders who came from RSS back ground dedicated their life and family to the party and to the country. They had strong motive lead the country. People like me want to see this original BJP again.
Today we are not in the society where Mayura Sharma ( a Brahmin) could became Mayura Verma (a Kshatriya, founder of Kadamba Kingdom, Emperor of Banavasi, 1st kingdom of Karnataka). Those days a Brahmin was not a Brahmin because of his birth, he could become a Brahmin when he achieves a height of Brahmajnan required for a Brahmin. In that sense I can’t tell I’m a Brahmin, I don’t have Brahmajnan. I don’t think anybody can claim he is a Brahmin today. So what I am writing here is about the group of people or a society of India and how it is being harassed politically and socially today. It was Muslim invaders who started harassing Brahmins, they created a big gap between Brahmins and other casts of Hindu community. Then it was British rulers who widened this gap. Whatever it could be Brahmins had contributed a lot for the construction of India. Or in other words it is because of Brahmins, ancient India is getting recognised today.

Kya love story hai:
Chander Mohan, the elder son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal is the main role in this real life drama. Another role is Anuradha Bali a.ka.a Fiza, former Haryana Assistant Advocate General. Enough with introduction let me start story.
Chander mohan, 38 years old, elder son of Haryana strongman Bhajan Lal, was not like any normal politicians, he never had an interest in politics. His father is a Congress leader, hence he came to politics as it is an inherited asset. As a family politics he enjoyed assembly membership for 4 times. He also became deputy chief minister of Haryana. Chand, already had a lovely wife Bishnoi for 13 years, and two chlidren. He came in contact with a city lawer Anuradha Bali. She was 32, divorced with a Mohali businessman and ready for some serious relationships. Look at photo, even today she looks hot! She Assistant Advocate General of Haryana. Then both started acting like lovers in college days and nobody could find them in office like college students bunks classes for dates.
As she tells he trapped her through constant SMSes, which he used to send her since 2006. The sample messages read: “Anu you don’t know how much I love you. God has created you with great love and affection. You are the ultimate jewel I possess.” and “Anu mujhe apna lo varna mujhe maar do.” Recall your college days. How exciting if it happens in highest government office of the state. Kya love story hai!!
I was using Google search, suddenly a search result started showing every site “This site may harm your computer”. I was shocked. Then repeated search with the name of some reliable sites, again same message. Then I typed Google in query box and hit search. Astonished to see the result. It was too “This site may harm your computer”. I thought something happened to my computer. I took a snapshot of the result page and turned off the computer. After sometime when I again logged in into Google the error was not there. It comfirmed it was some error caused by Google. However it disturbed me for a while. I came to know about the error next day in news paper reports. Here is the snapshot of the page. It could be a rare snapshot. Click on image to view it clearly.
Google explained it “Google flags search results with the message “This site may harm your computer” if the site is known to install malicious software in the background or otherwise surreptitiously. We do this to protect our users against visiting sites that could harm their computers. We maintain a list of such sites through both manual and automated methods. We work with a non-profit called StopBadware.org to come up with criteria for maintaining this list, and to provide simple processes for webmasters to remove their site from the list.
We periodically update that list and released one such update to the site this morning. Unfortunately (and here’s the human error), the URL of ‘/’ was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and ‘/’ expands to all URLs. Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file.”
Before going in detail I have to tell you what is domain squatting. Domain squatting is registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. Now the question is whether the following case a domain squatting?
Let us analyse the situation. Click on Airtel.in. You will be taken to India’s popular cellular service provider Airtel.

Whoever types Airtel.com and looks for Airtel detail he will be taken to Vodafone’s website. Vodafone gets free traffic from Airtel.

Sum dog millionaire grabbed 4 Golden globe international film awards. A R Rehaman, most favourite music director of India become first Indian to win that award. As everybody thought i also accepted it as a crown for India. Later I realised it is completely a myth. What is there in this movie which will distinguish from a normal bollywood movie? It has successfully pictured India as a country of slum, beggars and prostitutes. It has become an international trend. If somebody pictures eastern countries as slums, they will get award. Even white tiger is an example of this. I can bet, this Slumdog is not at all comparable with Taare jameen par or Lagaan.
