Wonderful illustrated information. I thank you about that. No doubt it will be very useful for my future projects. Would like to see some other posts on the same subject! If you had gestational diabetes, for example, you could start a new eating plan that is good for you and the baby and that can help you avoid this problem.

When Raj asks people on voting day to give him power so that he can show them what he can do, they too will say Tomorrow.
Kashmiris have a right to settle anywhere in India but not vice versa. Selective integration. All discriminatory legislation need to be reworked. It is a recipe for separatism not integration. By your yardstick, Kashmir is basically an Indian protectorate and entitled to benefits but not vice versa. By the way I am not a Bihari but am proud of the great Indian state of Bihar which produced Nalanda university, the Buddha, Babu Rajendra Prasad and Babu Jaya Prakash Narain and has made immense contribution to our country and civilisation. I am certainly no fan of the likes of Lalu Yadav & co, Afzal Guru and his band, etc.
One of the best compliments anyone has given me is ‘aah, you create stuff..’ All I did was make an elaborate joke that made that someone laugh a bit! But it sort of put into perspective what, just oh-my-god what an achievement it must be to create an original novel. or a haiku.
The increasingly shrill demands for content to be made available gratis makes me both happy and nervous at the same time. Happy because it means I’ll save money, obviously. Nervous because free stuff is, frequently and sadly, either not good enough or, stuffed with advertisements or the artist producing it is under the control of the sponsor/patron. Artists on a King’s dole would only produce stuff that will please said King. I want my artists to be independent and rich.
On the other hand, I am pretty sure that if advertisements were to be taken out, I would almost certainly be unable to afford art/content. It is as alarming to hear about newspapers around the world shutting down as it is to think how much my newspaper will cost me without those ridiculous full cover-page adverts or that page full of laughably competitive obits. Still, if staring at imprisonment for downloading bootlegged art, I’d rather pay for my entertainment and get whatever I can afford than be lumped with ‘free’.
Cover charge, ticket prices in the olden days? Like old olden?
*Imagines* …giant, steaming foundry with Egyptian slaves frantically pounding Nero’s bust onto fat bronze discs to be sold as admission tickets for the imminent 67 AD Olympics, with special gold medallions for the chariot race which the Emperor is rumoured to enter with his almighty, unheard of, ten-horse chariot!
…King Uthiyan Cheralatan stomping off in a huff in the middle of a recital because his soldiers couldn’t control the mass of ticketless fans which barged right into his court to witness the poetry duels during that year’s Tamil Poetry Sangam
…the Bard goes ballistic when a smarmy lout in tight purple breeches offers him a counterfeit ticket to that evening’s sold out show of Hamlet at the Globe
…ok now i am overdoing it. but this blog? I dig.
Here in the US, there’s a lot of subscribers paying a flat, monthly fee to websites like Netflix and Hulu. Essentially, you pay about $8 a month and watch a ton on TV shows (including past seasons) and movies on-demand via the internet. People have actually cancelled cable connections at home (quite a few, but not the most effective strategy as you tend to miss out on live events like the Oscars, for instance).
I don’t see this happening in India any time soon (awful internet speeds to begin with) but if/when it does, it will be a game changer in my opnion. essentially, you wil stop caring about what ‘channel’ you get and simply pay for only the shows you want or a flat fee each monthto access them all.
This is an intelligent and well reasoned rant, I am ashamed that while we have people in power, there are no leaders in India.
The bitter fact is that both Centre and the Maharashtra governments failed dismally; yet India rewarded them with a resounding win in 2009. Therefore, the people of India actually do deserve what they get. Tough, but unavoidable. The reality is also that at that time the Vir Sanghvi’s (later day Jaichands) were singing paens of the rotten governments and now come up with the facts that they always knew to be the truth. These traitors are equally culpable.
we are a soft state question is can we survive as a soft state in 21 century you loose security you loose it all there should be no compromise on internal security that means no appeasement of any community
India does need a right wing nationalist moment
Dude well written and good research work.
Thank you for this timely piece. Exquisitely and thoughtfully written.
I really don`t understand what was meant to be conveyed by the article. Let me start with the last line where you say, it took the nation to handle those terrorists, and the price was paid by Bombay. You seem to toe the line of Shiv Sena here. And the part on the authorities should have informed the media o not cover it, didn`t the media have that sense? At places you narrate it like you were there present when everything took place. I mean what do you exactly think this is? A movie? Whatever happened should surely not be repeated, another thing that does not need to be repeated is an article as such. Just dont understand why people have voted it 5 on5, when other posts happen to be better.
Hindsight is 20-20, which is what Vir is harping on. It possibly could have been prevented, as was 9/11, but that is an irrelevant question today. Today the question that needs to be asked is what has changed to prevent something like this from happening again? Is there better coordination in place between the intelligence agencies, and how fast is the reaction time once there is an intelligence input. What organisational changes are in place to intercept the next terror attack, whether home grown or from across the border.
How true. So much information and nobody acted. What a shame! And we were acting as if we were taken by surprise! So, how did the govt come back to power in 2009?
It’s always easy to do post analysis and blame. Given the Indian geography, population composition, maturing democracy and very many other factors, it’s very difficult to draw certain strategies. We also suffer from enemy within, which make life even more difficult. It’s probably only the time which will make us more responsible in tackling such terror related problems.
By the way lets also respect the fact that Bombay was renamed to it’s original name Mumbai. If journalist like Vir doesn’t follow the protocol, how do you expect ordinary people of India would?
You can not really say all failed Bombay on 26/11 but blame it on poor adminstration and police who is nothing but”Nikami”Please watch Farid Zakaria HBO made documentry on 26/11.Many of our problems are because of Congress party who has appeased all along muslims and that is why we have some enemies within.Corruption is another evil ailment which is part and parcel of Congress party and if you look honestly we have chaos every where.Surprisingly this party is winning again and again because of solid muslims and majority Christian votes.We need immediate change and new honest educated party otherwised we are doomed and there will be no end like Bombay carnage.After 26/11 our Government is doing business with Pakistan as usual like nothing has happened.
ok, we had intel about this, but when polic start investigation, so called secular brigade will shout innocent slims harassed. when police hv proof of bombs, again secular brigade will shout, police don’t know about bombs, and even its a bomb it was not exploded. after explosion, what use in catching terrorist, when they work from pakistan, so we should improve relationship with pakistan to get culprits. you are alos member of this brigade , mr vir… stop this crocodile tears.
its reading articles like this which makes me angry.
First of all ,instead of attack on Mumbai ,we must say it was attack on India.THe biggest tragedy of the nation is ,we talk as if it was a local incident.IT WAS NOT ATTACK OM MUMBAI BUT ON INDIA.
Remember initial reactions of pm and other congress leaders.what happened after few months ,we were sending dossiers to pakistan.IS THIS THE WAY TO DEAL ATTACK ON SOVERGNITY OF A NATION.
Media was playing its role.You could hear sentences like ,how fast life in mumbai became normal.What do we expect from those who are not dead,not to work ,not to eat or live.
People after cremating even their dear ones has to become normal.
I feel sad on whole approach.
I am sad to read the story and he is right that our force could save the people but i think this was a planned attack on Mumbai and some big shots were involved. in one sentence i will say This was happened to eliminate The Great Karkare the ATS chief.For this shameful attack we will blame our Leaders(Both from congress and BJP RSS ShivSena) those are selling the country for their selfishness.At that time where were our bravo Shiv Sainiks those say they are nationalist.
We can expect this from our politicians but Muslims who call Islam a religion of peace can carry this massacre of civilians in name of Islam is more shocking. Besides 26/11, Mumbai has been hit many times by terrorists- all Indian Muslims- acting in name of Islam. This is something we need to debate as well.
veer sanchvi is kayar sanghvi who is anti national congress’s paid anti national who is hired by hindustan times to get more advertisements
For this Dalal, every one can fail, but the only infallible is the Corrupt Party and its Italian ex-maid, University-drop out “hope of the nation” etc etc.
Sure we know how inept our Police are: didn’t Haji Mastaan, Karim Lala and then Dawood ibrahim build huge fortunes and operate “large-scale operations” with impunity for decades?
Who are to blame, the police officials whose hands get tied by our beloved Gandhian Congress-men, and inured into protecting the turfs of their political masters or the political leaders who have not only emasculated our police and Army. Our judiciary that permits anti-nationals to conspire against our nation and go hammer and tongs against political rivals, who are out of power?
There is a large-scale systematic conspiracy of weakening the nation and looting of the treasury, just pointing at the police who are at the receiving end and have to fend for themselves and expecting them to give up their lives when they have paid huge amounts to secure a job, obtained sans merit, is expecting a potato to do the work of a sword in that crucial moment of test of character.
Mr. veera Sangvi article is nothing bt the same pompous trumpeting about all that is under the sun and hw he has the best knowledge about it. the fact of the matter is Veera Sanghvi is urban coctail drinking and 5star seelping urchin who never sees how the rest have FAILES MUMBAI, but yeah, VEERA SANGVHI is up in arms when something remotest happens to the neo-rich.
Why telling all failed Bombay on 26/11 when it was adminstration and “Nikammi”police responsible for it.But our Government is doing business with terrorist country Pakistan as usual like nothing happened on 26/11 and LeT is now threatning to attack on Vishno Devi temple in Jammu.Untill and unless appeasement by our Government will not stop to muslims we will be always in trouble.It was big mistake to keep muslims after partition.Please see documentry on Mumbai terror narrated by Farid Zakaria and produced by HBO.
Why Sanghvi has not spoken a word against the media, which was broadcasting the events live and giving out details on the location of hostages, the placement of snipers, the movement of the police and commandos? Apart from the government, the media is equally culpable in its amateur handling of the 26/11 events.
