  • Cycle of climate~I

    Cycle of climate~I

    The water level of the oceans has increased enormously in forty years (1970 to 2010). From the normal water level in 1970, it has increased by 100 mm, a huge figure in the global scale! Carbon dioxide emission and GDP per capita have a direct correlation. The USA is at the top of the chart and India is at the bottom. But ironically India will suffer a lot more from the effects of climate change rather than the USA, which is taking corrective steps but will still remain at the top of the chart. India, much too busy with her politics, is still under a spell of slumber.

    The Iran Imbroglio~II

    The USA believes that economic pressure would topple the regime of the mullahs without realizing that it would only fortify their stranglehold.

  • Gandhi on the Currency

    Gandhi on the Currency

    By printing Gandhi on currency notes we are insulting the great old man. And we appear to be hypocritical; we display Gandhi so much and practise nothing of what he stood for. Lately, we have added a reproduction of his round-frame spectacles on the same currency notes. What do they symbolize except short-sightedness? What is there to be proud of that deficiency?
