    Chinese are leading. 🙁 Responds:

    You can say that again.

      Our beloved former president APJ Abdul Kalam hoped that India will be a super power by 2020 but we are trailing Chinese in all fields whether it is infrastructure, manufacturing, military strength, space etc etc. 🙁
      The Chinese have surrounded India(String of Pearls), they recently signed a nuclear pact with Pakistan, started aggressive patrolling in Arunachal Pradesh, Ladakh, but still our great politicians are busy accumulating wealth. Such is the sad state of affairs in this country. 🙁 Responds:

      In the coming battle of Yellow Monkeys vs Chutiyas, the Chutiyas have no chance..

    btw did you pre order your iPhone 4? Responds:

    No. For the 3G, we went on the second day. Not much of a wait since the crazies had all lined up the previous day.

    Have you?

      yes .. I was able to order it online on June 15th and the delivery estimate on order says June 24. Responds:

      BTW, we can’t find Walt Mossberg’s (the Wall Street Journal technology columnist) review of iPhone 4. Wonder if anyone has seen it?

      What do you think of the iPad?

      2. The NYT screwed the HTC EVO 4G.

    Around 460 million (Roughly 40%) Indians are still in poverty and you are asking about India’s broadband subscribers. :D.
    No offence, but there are other stats as well. The United States has 4% of the world’s population and 25% of the world’s incarcerated population. Responds:

    1. Look at the yawning gap between India and China.

    The Yellow Monkeys are leaping ahead while we are still caught up in the silly Mamta vs Lallu, Nitish Kumar vs Narendar Modi, Karunanidhi vs Jayalalitha, Bal Thackeray vs Raj Thackeray, Rahul Gandhi vs Mayawati tamasha.

    2. Regarding the high incarcerated population in the U.S., we have some hypotheses – Privatization of prisons (a very bad move in our opinion), racism (blacks have no chance in court), mandatory minimum sentences for drug possession/peddling, some high profile crimes led to calls by the people for severe/mandatory lengthy sentences plus 3-strike laws.

    Now they are emptying the prisons in California and other states because the states are (almost) bankrupt.

      I know that yellow monkeys are ahead in almost all areas.
      So the fact that there are around 1.3 million yellow monkeys in Canada alone is puzzling.
      When they are so developed why do they have to immigrate to other countries. May be because of the communist agenda in China. Responds:

      Why has there been large Chinese migration in the past? – Family, better prospects and education. But increasingly the second factor (better prospects) will not be a strong motivator given the recession/economic slowdown in the West.

      BTW, we’ve seen plenty of Yellow Monkeys in your city too.

      We live in a small town. But in a five-mile radius we have 6 Chinese restaurants. 🙁

    More than Broadband connection,quality education at the primary level must be first ensured to every child.
    I’m more concerned about the latter.

    Coming to Broadband,the urban educated guys prefer mostly to operate from the cyber cafes;so in one way most of the people in the big cities have an access to the web-world;the problem is with the small-towns and the villages. Responds:

    You write: quality education at the primary level must be first ensured to every child.

    Only possible to some extent through expensive private schools.

    Broadband… India… are you kidding…? There are huge number of places where even power supply has not reached. Still people are waiting for roads and basic amenities. We are just like another African nation with added cities with some infrastructure. Responds:

    You Write Above: We are just like another African nation

    But an African nation with some knowledge of C++ and Java. 😉

    So what have you decided…Raavan or Raavanan?

    But I am skeptical about how the movie would be since they started airing few songs in all the channels with repeated interviews of the lead stars and technicians. I am wondering whether this is plain marketing strategy or producer’s panic? Responds:

    The Dravidian version (i.e. Tamil), most likely.

    Just came back aftr watching Raavanan, i must say i was very disappointed …. I’m worried how the hindi version with your favourite actor would be…

    Let me stop at this point and put the onus on you to review after watching Responds:

    You write: I’m worried how the hindi version with your favourite actor would be…

    Hindi version is very disappointing, according to early reviews.
