Tribute to the Sai Baba Fraud

Now that he’s dead, these videos will become less popular. Thought I’d keep them handy, just in case N grows up and wants to be a conjurer, this could get him started. This is a must watch, if you go around advising people on such matters. So, here goes. Jai Sai Baba. A friend was quite scandalized by my irreverence when I wrote that I was quite thrilled that Sai baba died “off schedule” (he…

Told them that India was the land of opportunity and I don’t want…

Sai Baba dies off-schedule

Sai Baba died. My condolences to all who mourn him. Must be quite sad. He was well loved, well followed by many, though inexplicable to many others. On the other hand, I am thrilled.

NONE of these predictions came true. Good.…

Women's rights 101 for Pakistan's Powers that be

I had laughed when the video of Gilani as a PM candidate groping Sherry Rehman ON CAMERA went viral. Typical Indian attitude, I guess. We don’t expect decency from Pakistan. This was just typical. I made a few sarcastic remarks around Zardari and Palin. I raised my eyebrows in disbelief at the new heights of lecherousness to hear the US reporter’s allegations about Nawaz Sharif. I admit I saw it more as a soap opera…
