Some thoughts and some feelings, all my own:
Like in India Wal-mart is 'influencing' political leaders to take stances in favour of its entry at the risk of inviting corruption
charges. And this reminds me of Lord Acton’s remark “Power corrupts and
absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Like it also reminds me that Osho disagreed with
Lord Acton but observed that "Lord Acton was a politician himself and he was
speaking from his life experiences!" Ha! Ha!!
Like Osho further observed that power corrupts 'only those who are potentially corruptible!' How true!!
Like considering the number of people involved
in FDI approval policy, Rs 125 Cr seems to be very small amount. Wal-Mart surely
knows how to drive a hard bargain!!
Like Saira Banu says that Dilip Kumar never
really allowed her to hold his hand in public. And nor did he allow Asma, his second
Like thinking about love I recall what George
Bernard Shaw said, “First
love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.” Deepika Padukone
seems to be perpetually in first love, there is no second love by that standard
in her life!
Like the Indian Cricket team looks like a team
of potential retirees. They will bring in celebration whenever they go.
Like they say ‘hang Afzal Guru on Dec 13’ two
days before anniversary of attack on the parliament. Hanging has become a
political game in this country of Mahatma Gandhi.
finally, read this “The
experience is all consuming — so each is always on the other’s mind. This is
the person they want to spend all their time with — so time with good friends
is often set aside. It is a merged relationship — so each one feels part of the
other, not quite whole when they are not together. They are highly sensitized
to each other — so both are alert to subtle interpersonal signals and are
easily hurt by small slights from each other. The intimacy is deeper than with
anyone else.” It is about adolescents in love, NOT about Anna Hazare and Kejriwal!
