I PROTEST AGAINST this Hoarding:
This hoarding by Vedanta (Sesa Goa) in one of their mining areas is totally MISLEADING and inappropriate. It reads…
“Happiness, Satisfaction and Self-sufficiency are just some of the things that we leave behind AFTER mining.”
Yes, we all know that the NRI owned Vedanta is making crores of rupees at the cost of Goa and Goans. Now WHOSE happiness, satisfaction and self-sufficiency are they talking about ? STOP fooling us Vedanta. You’ll leave NOTHING behind except permanent DESTRUCTION of our environment and life-long health hazards for our citizens. GET LOST from Goa, and get rid of this BLOODY hoarding immediately.
On a hot summer afternoon, on Madurai’s busy main road, the district collector, U. Sagayam, saw a young man talking on a cellphone while riding a motorbike. He asked his driver to wave the man down, got down from his car and meted out instant punishment: plant 10 saplings within 24 hours. Somewhat unconventional justice, some might say. But that’s how Sagayam works.
He also took on a mighty soft-drink mnc when a consumer showed him a bottle with dirt floating in it. He sealed the bottling unit and banned the sale of the soft drink in the city. In Chennai, he locked horns with a restaurant chain and recovered four acres valued at some Rs 200 crore.
Sagayam’s masters degrees in social work and law come in useful in his role as an administrator. He knows the rulebooks in detail and is not afraid of using them, however powerful the opponent. No wonder then that Sagayam’s career is marked with the scars of countless battles.
Sagayam’s wife Vimala has stood by him all these years but she was rattled by some of the threats during the elections. “He always says if you are right, nobody can hurt you,” she says. “But sometimes it becomes difficult.”
Sagayam says he learnt honesty on his mother’s knees.
Hitler Didi of PORIBORTON: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s antics may have brought in higher central funds for the state, but her government’s performance has been below par in its first year.
A note prepared by the Planning Commission pointed out that the West Bengal government has been able to achieve just 6.5% of its target in agriculture, and provided only 14 days of work under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) — the lowest among the poorer states of India.
The panel also noted that the overall economic growth also slowed down to around 8% in the state after Banerjee took over from the Left Front government.
Banerjee’s tirade against the Left, blaming it for its poor state of affairs, resulted in the central government allocating Rs 22,124 crore in 2011-12, an increase of about 20% as compared to the previous year.
The Centre also gave another Rs 3,500 crore as a special package after Banerjee met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh earlier this year.
Mamata has not done anything so far to improve Bengal. Would she take only 5 years to destroy the state? Loud mouth nobody.

I became confused when I heard the word ‘service’ used with these agencies.
Indian Administrative ‘Service’
Indian Police ‘Service’
Indian Revenue ‘Service’
Indian Postal ‘Service’
State, City, Public ‘Service’
This is not what I thought ‘service’ meant.
But when I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to ‘service’ a few cows, everything came into focus. Now I understand what all those bureaucrats are doing to us.
