So what is strange about this post you might ask. Well i am using a web2.0 browser called Flock to make this post.Cool ain't it ? It uses firefox's codebase but adds quite a lot of addons like RSS, Blogs etc.For a developer preview the browser is pretty stable !
And as i said previously weather is always a great leveller. The hyped up and moronic bangaloreans claimed that only bombay cannot withstand 90cm of rain but bangalore being on top of a hill can withstand anything ! Ah it took just 9cm of rain to debunk all those myths. So isn't it a matter of shame that a city on top of a hill has most of its major highways flooded ? The road that leads to the so called IT high technology offices is still under waist deep water. Isn't it time that the administration made some serious effort to request companies to stop investing and upgrade the infrastructure to a world class level ? These are the fruits which the current administration must bear because a so-called "India's Best Chief minister" S.M.Krishna fought an egoistic war with a neighbouring state chief minister to attract investment, without taking into account whether the city can withstand it or not ? And for all those morons who still claim that bangalore has terrific weather think again. There is no point in being marooned like this when all it took was just 9cm of rain !
The ongoing tussle between Deve Gowda and Infosys is taking some real strange turns. However at a personal level i think there is nothing wrong in what Deve Gowda is trying to point out. The software coolies and sweat shop idiots who have already lost their thiking abilities due to the moronic nature of their work, need to think and then respond. They should not blindly come to the support of Narayana Murthy.
A government exists for the purpose of the entire state and it must look after the problems that are being faced all over the state. It does not need buisnessmen with their own intrests to dictate it as to how it should be run. The software industry came about without government interference. There is nothing wrong in demanding good roads and better infrastructure. But there is always a way to do that. Tiruppur makes the equivalent of what software earns by exports, but aren't they having their problems highlighted in a proper manner ? Are they threatening and trying to arm twist the government ? The unnecessary media hype is in part a major reason for such needless publicity.Deve Gowda is pretty right in saying that the land deals must be probed.
