Many years ago, a friend taught me how to use what was called the T 9 dictionary, which made texting so much simpler and faster. Not the least advantage of using a smartphone is that it helps people of a certain vintage - not nearly as old as VM, but moving in that direction - overcome their fear of technology. Still not good for the 48th function, but much closer and for much longer than the wife.

It shows a certain 'village' mindset, for the Indian media to celebrate, devoting an entire edition to the ( now mundane ) cell phone - bearing in mind that it has been around for 2 decades, and was not even invented, or initially promoted, here ( Indias only contribution was the 2G scam ).

After a few more years, will Outlook devote another magazine to the internet, perhaps? Dint the matriarchal media find anything more exciting, to write about?

To suggest that Godse chose the wrong target is falsification of history. The partition of India was not the reason why the Mahatma was assasinated. The man who is responsible for the partition was the intransigent Jinnah and Nehru, who succumbed to the pressure. Gandhiji was totally against it and in order to register his protest, he actually boycotted the Independence day celebrations.

The real reason for Godse's ire lay elsewhere. As per the partition act, the assets of undivided India were to be split 80:20 between India and Pakistan. Pakistan's share was Rs 75 crores, out of which they received an amount of Rs 20 crores. In the meantime, they invaded Kashmir and occupied a third of it. India insisted on Pakistan withdrawing from Kashmir as a precondition for the payment of the remaining Rs 55 crores. There was also the genuine apprehension that this money would be used to purchase arms to commit aggression on India.

In statecraft, pragmatism takes precedence over idealism. Yet, Gandhiji insisted on giving Pakistan its dues unconditionally and went on a fast to pressurise the government into remitting that amount to Pakistan.

It was this incident which led to the assassination of the Mahatma.

Ramesh (#27),

If a prostitute is not paid for sex after the act it amounts to cheating, like it would be in any other business transaction. It wouldn't be a case of rape.

But when a man and a woman are into a live-in relationship with the genuine intention (on both the sides) of getting married later, sex isn't a quid pro quo for the prospective union. If the man for whatever reason subsequently resiles it would be a civil case of breach of promise, but not of rape.

I agree with you except for your use of the word genuine. Even if the man had no intention of marrying, the offence is not rape - it is cheating or fraud.

A woman offers sex in exchange for money. The man has sex and doesn't pay the woman. That's cheating not rape.

A woman offers sex in exchange for marriage. The man has sex and reneges on the offer of marriage. That's still cheating not rape. Whether the man made up his mind before or after the event should be immaterial but, sad to say, our Hon'ble judges seem to think otherwise.

>> "Crusades were not all bad. Islam attacked Europe and invaded Spain and other countries."

>>>>>> "False! The Crusaders had only one interest, and that was to return Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem to Christian rule."

Both are true. The Christians wanted control of their holy land and Europe was attacked by Muslim armies which wanted to spread the message of the prophet. In Iberia, Islamic rule lasted as long as it lasted in India, if not more. The crusades, on the other hand, lasted for just two centuries.

In fact, Europe would have been Islamic today but for Charles Martel, who in 732, halted the advance of the Umayyid army at Tours, in Central France. That decisive victory changed the fortunes of Islam in Europe and it remained confined to Spain and Portugal till the Christians ousted them in 1492 after the fall of Granada. As for bloodshed, both the crusaders and the Muslim forces indulged in it with equal enthusiasm.

Politicians don't retire, they reach their level of incompetence as measured by their ability to garner votes.

What is your point Mr.P.Ray? You desire that India declare war on China? 
It will be foolhardy to take on China at this juncture.Suggestion of war from an intelligent person that I consider you, is a surprise. Neither we have the economic power nor military might to exert needed pressure on China. Even USA is humbled in recent times. Negotiations is the only way out- a bit of give and a bit of take shall be the mantra. Intransigence will not help. We got to be prudent. Remember, thanks to our earlier foreign policy of left oriented NAM, we have no real friends. The Russian friendship is a sham at the best.Sitting in far off Australia you may like to see action-right or wrong- but let us live peacefully in India, sir.China after all is not a foolish country.

Just some trivia.

Italian first names for males ends with O and for females with A. Examples: Mario, Maria,  Flavio, Flavia. Julio, Julia.

Sonia's original name was Antonia. Rahul's was Raul and Priyanka's was Bianca. The names were Indianised for obvious reasons.

Robert Wadhera changed his second name to to the less Indian sounding Vadra. Don't know if his firt name is now Roberto.

What's in a name? Plenty, Mr Shakespeare. At least in India. Way back in 40s, a certain Feroze Ghandy changed his surname to Gandhi. The rest, as the cliche goes, is history.

Ramesh (#24),

There is hope yet. The Supreme Court in several recent cases has made the fine distinction between consensual sex with the genuine intention to marry but where the marriage does not take place ultimately, and a deliberate false promise to marry being made with the intention of only satisfying one's lust. The former has been held to be not a case of rape, while the latter as falling within the definition.

I fail to see the difference, Consensual sex - for whatever reason - still involves agreement by both sides. So how is it rape. If a deliberate false promise has been made, it at best  (or worst) amounts to cheating. If a man has sex with a prostitute and then fails to pay her, is he guilty of rape. Sex granted in return for marriage is another form of prostitution, only the fee paid is is different.

"Now Modi takes credit for One Rank One Pension for Defence Personnel !Deserves full credit for appropriating Credit of what others have done.

"Decision of One Rank One Pension for Defence Personnel was taken 2 years back by UPA Govt, funds provided in the Budget and he takes Credit! (sic)," Singh said on Twitter.

Pigvijay Singh is talking c**p. As per conservative estimates, full implementation of OROP will cost the exchequer Rs 4500 crores a year. The UPA govt allotted Rs 500 crores and the NDA doubled that figure to Rs 1000 crores which is still only 22% of the required amount. One would have expected Jaitely who holds both the Defence and Finance portfolios to have resolved this issue, but he is still faffing around trying to pull the wool over the eyes of ex-servicemen.

If the govt feels that it cannot afford to spend Rs 4500 crores, it should come out and say so instead of making tall claims (no different from the UPA) that they have implemented OROP. This is a blatant lie and fools nobody who is affected. Ex-servicemen would accept if the govt said it could not increase their pensions, but this "We have implemented OROP" rubbish merely infuriates them.

I really don't understand why Pigvijay has waded in, because it only brings the UPA's lies back into the limelight and deflects attention from the NDA's lies.

Thought I was old fashioned in my choice of music, but just see the vintage of these songs. Barring one from 2003, the others are, on an average, almost as old as I am. The Hindi film industry needs to introspect. It has stopped creating the sort of great music that will endure. If the reviews of Happy New Year are any guide, the films are becoming forgettable too, memories to be left behind in the multiplex, along with cans of Coke and cartons for popcorn.

False! The Crusaders had only one interest, and that was to return Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem to Christian rule. Their killing was so ferocious that strrets of Jerusalem were like rivers of blood.

""In 1099, after a forty-day siege, the Crusaders took Jerusalem. The killing lasted two whole days, at the end of which most of the Muslim population – men, women and children – had been killed. Jews had fought with Muslims to defend the city, but the entry of the Crusaders created panic. In remembrance of tradition, the Elders instructed the Jewish population to gather in the synagogue and to offer up a collective prayer. The Crusaders surrounded the building, set fire to it and made sure that every single Jew burned to death." - (Tariq Ali, an atheistic Brit)
