So many points, so little time!: Dec 6-12

1. Nearly at the stroke of midnight, (precisely aroung 11:45pm on December 9th, so that Madam's birthday is not missed), Home Minister P.Chidambaram announces thus: The process of intitiation of a separate state of Telangana will begin. Within the hour, KCR called off his fast, drank lime juice, cried in front of the media, and thanked one and all. All through the night all pro-telangana activists celebrated, and while their "success" was just beginning to sink in early on December 10th, the people of Andhra and Rayalseema region woke up to the shocking announcement of Chidambaram playing on the TV. And then all hell broke lose! Slowly, MLA's from all parties started resigning that by the end of the day, about 100 MLA's resigned. A few MP's also resigned. Public outcry began in Andhra and Rayalseema regions. Students took out protest rallies. Hooligans had their own field time, breaking as many buses as possible. Now, the story was not formation of Telangana but the unrest and the political turmoil the state has plunged into. And then slowly over the next two days, it was clear that even the CM of the state was not kept in the loop about the announcement! All along, the congress folks have been doing a "Madam bhajan" with the CM himself leading the pack. The anger over Madam's sudden decision was plain palpable across the state for ignoring the aspirations of the rest of the state, while giving inhe demands of KCR, just because he went fasting.

The crisis did not spare TDP too. More than half of their MLA's resigned too, and Chandrababu Naidu had to go on full defensive to explain the action of his MLAs. The midnight announcement without even the CM knowing also kind of brought back the "Telugu pride" slogan of the early 1980's. Only difference was that there is no NTR around :(. Taking nice advantage of this situation, MLAs of PRP, who have been waiting for a nice opportunity to resign, put in their papers too. With so many MLAs out, why would the ministers want to stay back? So now, ministers from Andhra and Rayalseema want to quit! CM got so much vexed, that he just went home and took rest, leaving everything to Madam. This kind of constitutional crisis was never witnessed before, but the policy of Madam is to again wait and watch, hoping that this violence and demands will subside on their own. Sycophant congress leaders even announced that this was Madam's birthday gift to the people of Telangana, but three days down the line, no one really cares about her birthday anymore. The buck has to stop at her door (oops, I said the unthinkable!), and the wait and watch policy is just spelling disaster for the state. Buck up madam, for unfortunately our CM is just waiting for guidance from you to run our state.

2. Amidst all this, news about the arrest and chargesheeting of David Headley in the US took a backseat. Within two months of arresting him, charges have been framed in a US court for being an accomplice in the Mumbai 26/11 attacks. His story is astonishing to say the least. Born to a Pakistani father and a US mother, David Headly a.ka. Daood Gilani was an under cover operative of the dreaded LeT and was actively involved in the planning of many terror attacks. The US courts might finish the trial and sentencening sooner than we complete our work on Ajmal Kasab here! If David Headley wants to live longer, he should perhaps request for trial by an Indian court!

3. I haven't read too much about the climate change topic, but the summit at Copenhagen seems to be heading towards a disaster! A leaked draft text confirmed the fears of many developing countries that the developed countries(read the US) are trying to impose unfair restrictions, and the draft has been rejected summarily. A recent investigative report also showed how data was manipulated to create the hype about Climate change too. Will just wait for the summit to end this week, to do some more reading :)

4. Well, Indian test team won the series against Srilanka 2-0 and is now the top ranked team in the world ( Please note that World here means 9 test playing countries:) ).

Simply put...man o man...what a mess! I can't even believe we have a CM like this who just goes by what ever the central leadership says. So, why the hell do we have an assembly and legislative leaders? May its just better that MADAM SONIA rules all the states with congress majority directly? Such stupid $%&*&^@#.

This is the biggest blunders of all time that congress has comitted. Not even bothering to involve leaders is pathetic to say the least. Is madam sonia thinking that she is queen and can just go about doing whatever she thinks? She is not from India and she knows nothing about Telangana region and nothing about the past struggle. I often wonder if she really knows why some people are asking for a seperate state? May be she just she wants do something on her birthday? Just pathetic state of affairs. I am ashamed we have such leaders ruling our country/State.

Let me ask one last question for TRS leaders. What the hell did they doing being ministers/MLA's for all these years. have they done anything for Telangana region. Did they build one hospital/school/whatever. So they think they will start doing all this after carving a seperate state?
