India is longing to be considered an Economic Superpower in the globe, and to become a permanent member to the Security Council. However, things are looking grim as the new Human Development Report of the country for 2010-2011 has exposed: Over 35% of children continue to be born malnourished and underweight. My favorite channel CNN-IBN exposed how in one district of the industrial state of Maharashtra alone over 500 children are dying each year due to malnutrition and hunger.

Mr. Anna Hazare and his team of great servants of the country who have vowed to clean the country of corruption have been thoroughly exposed! They have recently gone to Hissar in Haryana state of India to tell people not to vote for Congress. Nothing wrong with that if their intention of cleaning the country matches with action. The only person in the fray with no criminal records against him is certain Mr. Jai Prakash of Congress! And his nearest rivals of Haryana Janhit, Indian National Lok Dal and the sitting Member of the Legislative Assembly--all these three have several criminal cases pending against them, according to their own affidavits filed along with their nomination. What an irony! It is a SHAME that Team Anna wants to support cleaning the country of corruption and criminality in politics, and yet thrill the politicians with criminal background through their indirect support. By asking to vote against Mr. Jai Prakash they are asking people to vote for criminals! People must see their true colors. Someone said it on TV, this team Anna smells saffron. Or, to tell it bluntly, they are full of hypocrisy.

Steve Jobs is no doubt the Apple of the Apple empire. It is a virtual world in which he alone ruled. There were many co-founders, but everyone knew apple. His followers revered him, and his rivals shuddered at each launch of the Mac and Apple application. He learned little by education, by life and experience an ocean. His speech at the Stanford University is considered as one of his masterpieces of reflective thought--empirically sound, profoundly Augustinian, and yet existenially appealing the young. As a mark of respect and tribute to the man, many news channels, papers and on-line sites have reproduced the same. For those who have missed it, we present it for you here:
