World Leaders Dont Shake Bush’s Hand

Bush walks across a line of world leaders without shaking or being asked to shake any of their hands. Whether the President is being rejected by the world leaders or he is rejecting them, CNN’s Rick Sanchez aptly says that Bush looks like “the most unpopular kid in high school that nobody liked.”

The Crisis of Identity

My Origin – Tamil Hindu Brahmin, My Parents are from Kerala. I Speak Tamil, Malayalam, Oriya, Hindi and English. My Passport says “Republic of India”.

Born in Lucknow (U.P.). Studied in Rourkela (Orissa). Studied in Trichur (Kerala). Studied in Bhubaneswar (Orissa). Worked in Cochin & Calicut (Kerala), and all other places around here. Worked in Bangalore (Karnataka). Worked in Kolkata (West Bengal). Worked in Hyderabad (A.P.). Worked in Chicago (IL, USA) & Santa Clara (CA, USA).

Well, does this look like a resume of some sort?

Hell… NO – This is not a CV or Resume. I am just trying to figure out my nativity. I am trying to answer the question – I am the son of which soil?

After the rhetoric being drummed up by politicians about the “son of the soil” concept, I have had a few more questions.

What does the term citizenship refer to?

What does the term Nation mean?

Will I have to specify the State Nativity whenever I introduce myself?

Will I need a visa to travel from one state to another, in my own nation?

I am going through an identity crisis. Who am I?

Barack Obama’s Siblings

The president-elect has said that he’s close to only his two sisters, Maya and Auma. But here’s what we found on MSN about Obama’s half-sibs.

His sisters

Auma Obama: Age 48, according to most sources. Born to Barack Sr. and his first wife, Auma didn’t meet Barack until they were both in their 20s. She’s married to an Englishman named Ian Manners.

Maya Soetoro-Ng: Age 38. Born to Obama’s mother and Ann Dunham’s second husband, Lolo Soetoro, Soetoro-Ng teaches high school in Honolulu. She’s married to Konrad Ng, a Chinese-Canadian professor.

His brothers

Malik Obama: Age 50. Malik met his half-brother Barack in 1985. Malik lives in Kenya (in Nyang’oma Kogelo) and runs an electronics shop.

Abo Obama: Age 40. This half-sibling manages a telephone store in Kenya.

Bernard Obama: Age 38. Bernard works as an auto-parts supplier in Kenya.

Mark Ndesandjo: Born to Barack Sr.’s third wife, Ruth Ndesandjo, Mark is Stanford-educated and lives in Shenzhen, China. He exports Chinese-made goods to the U.S. and reportedly shuns the spotlight.

David Ndesandjo: David was killed in motorcycle accident.

George Obama: Age 26. Obama’s youngest half-brother. Homeless for years, now living in a Nairobi slum, George is working to become a car mechanic. About his situation, George told CNN: “I was brought up well. I live well even now.”

Sarah Palin didn’t knew Africa was a continent, claim McCain aides

And the finger pointing begins.

The Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate, according to Mccain’s aide , did not know that Africa was a continent, could not name all three countries in the North American Free Trade Agreement (that would be the US, Canada and Mexico) and declined to prep for her now infamous Katie Couric interview. She also argued that South Africa was simply a region of the larger country of Africa.

Furthermore, the McCain aides told that Mrs Palin threw tantrums over bad press reviews and was a shopaholic. He also reported that chief McCain foreign policy advisor Randy Sheunemann was fired late in the campaign for allegedly leaking details of the splits.

One senior aide told the magazine that she was told to buy three suits for the Republican National Convention and hire a stylist, but instead, the vice-presidential nominee began buying costly goods from stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.

At one point during the campaign, Palin’s youngest daughter, seven-year-old Piper, was photographed carrying a US$800Louis Vuitton bag.

Two sources told Newsweek the goods were bought by a wealthy donor, who was flabbergasted when he saw the bills. Palin also allegedly instructed low-level staffers to buy her new clothes with their credit cards, something the McCain campaign only discovered last week when the aides tried to get reimbursed.

Even if these reports are accurate, why was she okayed as running mate?

Looking for Solutions

I have been receiving a lot of comments these days from people who support Raj Thackeray and his way of handling the migrant issue.

Let be clear on one thing that unemployment is just not limited to Maharashtra . 

 Since 1995 the proportion of people below poverty line stands at 25% (As per Mr. V. Ranganathan, Chief Secretary, Government of Maharashtra). As of 2007 unemployment rate stands at 7.2% in India.

Unemployment across  major States, 1999/00

       

State Rural Urban
Andhra Pradesh 12.81 11.88
Bihar 9.09 8.58
Maharashtra 10.27 11.46
Uttar Pradesh 08.58 07.91
Kerela 26.30 25.74

Given that Maharastrian youth is facing unemployment , but Is MNS handling this issue in the correct fashion? 

Rather than pointing fingers at North Indians and Maharashtrians , I would rather like to hear possible solutions.

All possible and plausible solutions are welcome
