Gen Y existed 2400 years earlier !!

" The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers "

This statement has been attributed to Socrates (470-399 BC) by Plato from Plato's Republic Book 4, confirmed by the Library of Congress.

Gen Y existed 2400 years earlier !!  :)

Hope the country gallops now..

With new faces at the centre, can we expect a change in the policies and administration in the country ?

The first and foremost thing which the new govt should do is to see that

1. even the poorest of the poor get a square meal a day and can have jobs

2. the people below the poverty line are reduced by bringing suitable social measures

3. create jobs for the young people of the country.

4. improve the infrastructure of roads, rail, airports and seaports in the country

5. ensure the black money stashed abroad by Indians is repatriated and the guilty are punished

6. Land, bandwidth for Internet and telecom, mining rights for ores are given to organisations keeping the interests of the country in mind

7. Ensure manufacturing growth and kickstarting the GDP growth

Shall keep adding more ..

A thought for India ..

The whole world is watching with great interest at what is going to happen in India, in what way will India give economic, scientific, technological, spiritual, moral and ethical leadership to the world. 

The people want to know, will BJP maintain a hat-trick of defeats with a third defeat straight in a row or save its face this time ? Will Congress give it up to sit in the opposition ?  2004 is very fresh in our memories when thousands of crores of public exchequer money were wasted on the India Shining campaign and BJP lost pathetically .. or will the people of India give them an opportunity to take India from global no.3 to at least no.2 or no.1 ??  Time will tell ..

Hail Indian democracy, largest and greatest in the world. A big thanks to the political parties for co-operating to make these elections a peaceful, memorable and hard fought one. Except for the attempts to browbeat the constitutional offices of EC, nothing went wrong. Now since it is all over, we should rise above petty political differences ..

Neighbour's envy, owner's pride.. The ideals of democracy which our founding fathers embraced sixty seven years back continues to be its greatest strength and unifying force. Any attempts to derail it will be shortlived..

Let not immaturity and ignorance of world history drive us back ..

Floating nuclear reactors .. from The Economist ..

Like a nuclear-powered ship can float on water, why not a floating 1000 MegaWatt Light Water nuclear reactor, given our expertise in building offshore oil platforms ..

With plenty of cooling water around (an infinite heat sink), there should be no fear of the 2011 Fukushima repeat ! Earthquake and Tsunami swells could be contained in 100m deep moorings .. Dismantling and decommissioning could be done after towing to landbased decommissioning yards.

With proper safety units and regulations to prevent leakages and underwater attacks, the idea could be a reality for Rosatom, the Russian energy co. building the 70 MW floating nuclear power plant to be completed in 2016.

Great idea ..
