Are you capable of selling your country? Test your IQ now and find out. Test 1: Endosulfan.

Please click on the picture to enlarge and read the questionnaire.

Think about it. Why is Endosulfan not banned in this country? What could be the reasons?
You may want to read a bit of Wikipedia.
Or an article from one of the 72 countries which have banned it.
You can of course google it too.

The blood of elephants

Where will we go when we have killed all the elephants? To the Siddhivinayak Temple and pray to Ganesha?

The Other India's 2011

haunted by the ghost of the year gone
cold woebegones
hangover of consumerism
the corrupt plan their loots for the year
nothing about the next eleven months looks promising
something should disrupt the black
but nothing does

The corporate plunder
claws at the heart of my country
ghosts of the dead rise and question
the spring season in the capital
the nasturtiums in bloom
could almost make you come out
of your self imposed exile
and if you do
the mixed smell of diesel, blood and perfume
will intoxicate you
to a sleep that the 350 million
are only too content to sleep
