Aap se special pyaar hai ...itne saalo se.
So I feel I should let my friend know if I am missing out on something I do regularly on his Site.
My Respected Friend is in Delhi and we decide to meet at The Habitat Centre. And over a Three Course Continental Meal we start chatting.
Me:: On Gold there is a clarification to scotch the rumors.....
Respected Friend: Frankly Modi must have non-productiveness of Gold Holdings in mind...Indians hoard Gold as security ....vanity ...and for Marriages....I think there should be some way to make Indians reduce their Gold Holdings for Vanity purposes and for Security ...Marriages.....go in for Gold Bonds...in this way a major chunk of Gold Holdings would turn productive!!! Indians would have to be enticed to do this...more prudent way...the only way go break tradition ...
M: Now Bengal FM has made GST the bargaining card.... many would decipher his statement as so.....
RF: His logic is State Government's losing Revenue because of Demonitisation. ...
M: Yes he now wants State FMs to deliberate ...calls Demonitisation and GST a double whammy. .
RF: Fact is both will be a Double Sundae for the economy ....but Politics is hurting India's attempts to change for the better... achaa... I hear TMC made a issue about the Commercial Plane which Mamtha was in making a Emergency Landing ..
M: Yes TMC is giving it a conspiracy twist ..
RF: Usually Planes have reserve fuel to fly to the nearest airport from the destination Airport in case of an emergency ...its said that three commercial airlines were found short of this reserve fuel ... the plane Mamtha was travelling hovered for some time and made an Emergency Landing. ..
M: Arre if she misses a step by mistake TMC will say BJP tripped her ... this is the mindset prevailing today...
RF: I've been noting TV Channels send their Reporters to interview people standing in ATM/Bank queues ...and many Reporters try to needle those they interview ...however 80% say they are being inconvenienced but they are with the Government on Demonitisation..
M: Yes on one Channel the interviewee said ...taqleef hai ..mushqil hai ..toh kya!!
RF: One well known Anchor nowadays spends his afternoons interviewing Public in queues ..and he's tenacious to get a negative response ...twists the questions to get the answer he's looking for..
M: Too much Bawaal day in and out. ..
RF: By the way today's Bawaal… hacking of Rahul and Congress's Twitter accounts ... Congress is questioning Digital Security ...
RF: Even before an Investigation they are pronouncing BJP guilty..for all you know could be a disgruntled insider ....many times more secure Sites have been hacked ..I think what Congress would be worried about is the Direct Messages in both accounts!! Maybe next we will get CongiLeaks...desi version of WikiLeaks!
M:Now it's being said the Server was hacked into ..one Congress Spokesman even tweeted that Digitization was unsafe as the account of even an SPG protectee could be hacked.
RF: What has SPG got to do with Cyber activities of its protectees ....prudent way would have been to do an in-house investigation before pointing fingers...
M: And attacking Digitization is like saying don't use Electricity because it can give shock and even electrocute ...so actually it's Demonetization that's in their sights...
RF: Yes like 3 planes technically low on fuel ..in one Didi was travelling ... Demonetization is being blamed.... Airlines do not have money to buy Fuel because of Demonitization ...what a joke ......they will blame Demonetization for all problems!! Ha...ha... this is for sure in Luytens. ... Chemists are having record sales of Sleeping and Diarrhea medicines ..yes the sufferers can very rightly blame Demonetization!!!
M: Today my turn for a joke ...After the crass comment Rabdi made about Nitish and Sushil Modi ...Chaara Laloo ne khaya (notionally) aur gobbar Rabdi karr rahi hai (notionally)..
