I know that it’s been a week now since I last posted two songs on my blog. Well, I was not well. Even I haven’t recovered fully. But I thought to write something today. I can’t stay away from writing for a long time. Yesterday one of my friends called me just to enquire about my health. Well, she is a nice friend of mine. Her name is Miss Snehi. She is very sweet. And we were talking after a long time. You might think that if she is a nice friend then why did we talk after long time? Actually I didn’t talk to her when I was down with fever. Anyway, today I’m not in mood to talk about my illness. I was talking about my friend, Snehi. She is very sweet, innocent, frank and very openly. That’s why everyone likes her. She bowls others with her cuteness. And she likes to make good friends. That’s why she has made me her friend. A bit of self praising. Isn’t it? Well, it happens sometimes. Well, Snehi is a girl who really makes her friends comfortable. The main attraction is her smile and the dimples which she gets on her cheeks while smiling. She really cares about her friends. And she has a nice voice. She sings quite well. You can say that she is a perfect example of a good friend. I’m delighted to have Senhi as my friend. I wish that we have a long lasting friendship.

Now the directors of two IIMs –
And the major setback is that online exam contract was given to Prometric. People are saying that foreign companies are coming to Indian IT Professionals for all their software works. And IIMs went to a foreign company to conduct such a prestigious exam. Mismanagement was already there. But the technical hitches which popped up become another instrument of insult. People are even saying that IIMs teaches management to others but when it came to take vital decisions then it forget all its management lessons. BITSAT is conducting online exams every year successfully for over 1.25 lakhs students. And that without any hassle. People are even saying that when the CAT exam was paper based then the question paper was having a good standard and when the matter came to set 20 different question papers then CAT Committee couldn’t maintain its standards.
It’s true that CAT Committee gave the assignment to Prometric Company but the general mass thinks that CAT Committee is the sole responsible authority of conducting CAT exams. And they gave the assignment to Prometric without any mock test or without any other tests to check whether the exam will run smooth or not.
So not the CAT Committee has to take some concrete steps for the quality of CAT exam and for regaining the lost stake. I hope that CAT 2010 will be conducted without any hassle. Only time has the answer to this anxiety. And of course, CAT Committee knows it very well.

I know that for the past few days, I’m not writing any post on my blog. Actually, I was monitoring the recent turmoil in the Indian political scenario. Yes, I’m talking about the division of Andhra Pradesh and carving out of Telangana from that. It will be the 29th state of
If Sardar Vallahab Bhai Patel would have been alive today, then he would be in very painful condition. He worked tirelessly in merging more than 600 Princely states in Indian Union. He merged Hydrabad in
That’s the history of Andhra Pradesh. Now come to the present situation. Out of 23 districts in Andhra Pradesh, 10 will go in Telangana. And there are anti-Telangana protests also happening in Andhra Pradesh. Out of 294 MLAs, till now 134 MLAs have forwarded their resignations to the Speaker of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly. Out of 134 MLAs, 80 are from Congress, 40 from TDP and 14 from PRP, a party formed by Telgu film superstar Chiranjeevi. Now the anti- Telangana movement is gaining momentum. 3 anti-Telangana activists committed suicide. This chaos in not leading to any positive output.
Again there is division on the basis of language. It’s something very harmful. Let’s see the scenario after the division. After division catchments area (69%), cultivable area in river basin (71%), geographical area and population (42%) will go in Telangana. I just want to ask those who want the division that what’s the need of this division? Is it just to have power or is it just to have a region of one language?
All these are nothing but the game of politicians. These politicians know how to play with people’s sentiments to gain their political aims. At the end of the day, it’s the common man who suffers. And if the Union government goes on granting permission for the division of states then the demand will arise from all the parts of the country for carving new states either on the basis of language, or on the basis of caste or religion. Until when we will be dividing

Again no comments are coming. It means no one is reading it seriously except one of my friends. Well, I’m taking about my friend Miss Archana. She is very good friend of mine and she is a nice girl. The thing which I like most about her is her sweet nature and the cute smile she has. That’s the main positive point she has. Her cute smile. And she is very friendly to all. She always has a smile on her face which radiates positive energy from her. And all her friends miss her a lot. And she knows how to crack jokes in the class. She is a perfect example of a good friend. Another thing which I like a lot about her is that she is really helpful to others. Give her a task and she does it with ease. Sometimes she panics but that’s rare. In short, she is a gem which needs to be preserved. That’s all I can say about her.

Friday, December 4, 2009
Today I was discussing with my friends on a topic. The topic was “Should the online exams be scrapped?” In my view, it shouldn’t be scrapped. It’s very convenient. It helps in declaring the result very faster. Now a day, we are using new technology in every thing. We are using mobile phones with latest features; we are using ATM cards and online banking. We are reading e-books; we are in touch with far away friends through internet. In short, we are depending on technology for everything. Then why can’t we have online exams? What’s wrong in that? I know that many people will say that the CAT 2009 has become a failure. But there are various reasons for this fiasco. There was no mock test been conducted either by the Prometric or the CAT committee? Then it would have become more easier to find the drawbacks or the technical difficulties, would have come to light. But it doesn’t happen. Anyway, I think I’m been deviated from the topic. Well, my point is about the total competitive exams. It should be online. It shaves a large amount of paper. If we take example of CAT then more then 2.5 lakhs students appears in the CAT exams every year. Now just imaging the amount of paper required in preparing the answer sheets and question papers fro so many students. And there are so many management entrance exams in

Couple of days back, I received comment for Miss Anuja. Actually she asked me about the preparation for CAT. Well, I don’t think myself to be such a high profile person who can give the exact answer. Miss Anuja, I would just give you advice to stick to the old proverb which says ‘there is no shortcut to success’, and ‘hard work brings successes. That’s the only mantra in this competitive age. Concentrate on your studies and be focused on your aim. Don’t get derailed from your tracks like Indian trains. Okay, just kidding. There is not much havoc about the Dos and Don’ts about preparation for the CAT exam. The CAT exam is just an examination which sees your basic skills in communication and solving problems. That’s why only English and Math are the important sections in CAT exam apart from Data Interpretation which checks an aspirant’s knowledge of understanding. These things are necessary for those who want to be in the prestigious B Schools. Because B Schools makes a student more efficient as a business manager. So to do well in the CAT exam I would suggest to be focused and determined. And of course, through your hard work, you will ripe the fruit of being selected in the top 7 B Schools of India. So, Miss Anuja, I hope that your problem is solved. If not, then you are always welcomed to ask questions and write comments at my blog.

Second day also the Mouse menace worked during the ongoing CAT exams. Result of this… Students suffered. So it seems that the Mouse is wining the war over CAT but at the cost of student’s harassments and anger. Prometric, the company organising the CAT 2009, has put the blame on the virus attack for the malfunction. Prometric officials are saying that the virus were not detected by the anti virus software at the exam centres. Whatever may be the case, but it’s not exactly the thing which is making the CAT exam to be a smoother one just like it was last year. Whatever may be the reasons for the failure or the catastrophe, which is creating harassment for the students, is creating embarrassment for the CAT committee. The most important thing is that whether the exams are going as per schedule or there will be afresh exams? This question is very much important now. Because it’s now the reputation of the CAT committee involved now. So, the sooner they came up with the answer the better it is for the students. I hope that the CAT committee takes the decision in couple of days. This will stop the harassment of the students.
Sunday, November 29, 2009
So the game of CAT and Mouse began yesterday. But in this game the students were at the losing end. Majority of the students faced the problem of system rebooting and sudden shut down of the computers. It lead to the increase of pressure and anxiety amongst students. The CAT committee is silent over this. How can they answer for the question when the things were out of their hands? It was the concern of the centre people where the exams were conducted. They didn’t checked their computers to eliminate the problem of rebooting and automatic shut downs. In my view, it was anticipated that this type of problem will arise. But no measures were taken to eradicate this. Why? Why wasn’t there any back up plans? Why should the students suffer due to the fault of the people at the examination centres? And there are many more questions. Is the CAT committee going to take another exam for those students who faced this type of problems? I don’t think that it’s not right if they are barred from the examination. So, I hope that the CAT committee is going to do in this direction. They aren’t answering any questions at the moment. I think they are finding the cause of the entire malfunction which happened on the opening day of the CAT exam. In fact, their reputation is also at the stake. The sooner it is solved, the better it is for the students coming up for the CAT days in coming days. And I hope that this type of errors and malfunction will not occur next year.

The CAT fever begins from today. For the first time, 2,41,000 aspirants will try to tame the CAT with the help of a Mouse. Yes, I’m talking about the online CAT exams. The changed trend is a matter of worry for many students. They are still finding it very tough to crack the exam to go to prestigious B-Schools in
There are many institutes which provide coaching for the management entrance exams, all over

Today is the first anniversary of the Mumbai attack. A sad day which has marked its impression long in our memories. 166 people were killed by the 10 militants who came in Mumbai through sea route. Only Ajmal Kasab was arrested alive out of those 10 militants. People in Mumbai are out on streets and at various places in prayers in the memory of those who were killed by the terrorists. The Mumbai Police is parading in various parts of the city. But we need to think on various things also. I agree that no country is free from the terror attack. But we have to take necessary steps to save our country. Last year, during the attack, there were many drawbacks which came in front of us. First one was the movement of NSG commandos from

It’s almost a week that I wrote my post on the blog. Actually it was a sort of waiting time for me. I was expecting you people to give some comments but it seems that all my waiting has gone in vein. I think my expectation was wrong. Sometimes, I think that this expectation plays a vital role in our life. We expect something in return for certain things do or from certain people around us. We feel very sad or depressed when our expectation is not fulfilled. Today I’m not in mood to write. Memories of past time are coming back Again and again. The things which happened last year were so sad that still its memory is fresh in our memories. From tomorrow I’ll write a series on the Mumbai terror attack.

Kudos to master blaster. He has done some thing really tremendous off the field. He showed his true face of a real Indian. He told it to media persons that he plays for the entire nation. Not just for Mumbai. Sachin Tendulkar not only did wonder with his bat but when it comes to talk then he really he makes impact there also. Tendulkar was talking to media persons on the occasion of completing 20 years of playing International Cricket. Sachin clearly send his message to Raj Thackeray that Sachin is proud to be a Marathi but he plays for team

Yesterday, I wrote about the decline in the number of applicants for CAT this year. I cited economic slowdown and lay offs as one the reasons for the downfall. But today, there is a good news. This year, Indian Institute of Management –
Thursday, November 12, 2009
This year the decrease in the number of the applicants for Common Admission Test (CAT) is the lowest in the last 10 years. Last year the number of applicants was 2.70 lakhs. But this year the number of applicants is 2.41 lakhs. Straight down fall of 29,000 applicants. If we talk in percentage then its downfall of 10.74%. The blame is given to the global slowdown, which affected the salaries and the employment. And the placement scenario wasn’t good in the B-schools. So, this may be the one of influential reasons. This time CAT Committee was prepared for some 3 lakhs applicants. It was having a buffer system for the extra applicants. But still, that didn’t work out. The number is less than the expectation of the committee. I think, in addition to the placement scenario, the computer based test of CAT has played an influential role in the downfall. Many aspirants aren’t familiar with the computer. So that may have created some kind of scare in the mind of applicants. They might have thought that how can the cope with the computer based exam. They don’t have much experience and knowledge in handling the computer. Might be they have thought to prepare for the next year or might have looked to other entrance exams of B-schools.

Getting comments on the posts always makes me think again. Recently I got two comments on the posts titled Day 135 and Day 138. Some anonymous person is writing comments on the blogs. First of all, I would like to say thanks to Mr Anonymous for his comments. He wrote in his comment on Day 135 that problems cannot be tackle by taking harsh steps only. But he is forgetting or he might have missed that the Maoists have been given enough chance to talk with the government. But instead of coming for the peace talk, they are damaging the government properties like blowing up of railway tracks, attacking on police stations. There is not much option left for us. We have to tackle this situation with the force only. Maoists are terrorists inside the Indian border. We have to fight them. The government is doing peace talks only. But in response to that what we are getting in return from the Maoists? Blasts, massacres, hijack of trains. And as Mr Anonymous stated in his comment that poverty is the reason for the Maoists to spread. Actually that’s main weakness which Maoists are taking advantage of. So to stop them its important or rather say it’s necessary to take harsh steps.
Wednesday, November 4, 2009
Today morning, I read very sad news. It’s very sad to know that the common man was ignored so badly even he was dying in the name of security to the Prime Minister. This is the first incidence that a man has died at the gate of a hospital when his car was stopped by the police for the security of Prime Minister. I agree that total security should be provided to VVIPs like Prime Minister. But is it right to bar a person to get treatment and allow him to die? I’m talking about the incidence that happened in
If the college management has invited Prime Minister for the convocation ceremony then it should had made the venue somewhere else. The college management knew it very well that the hospital is very crucial. Patients come from other cities also for the treatment. Then also it kept the convocation ceremony in the hospital campus. Second thing which really astonished me is the inhuman nature of the policemen at the gate of the hospital. Seeing the situation of Sumit Verma they should have called any senior doctor to get some medical aid. If the policemen would reacted at the proper time then life a man could have been saved.
We need to change the system like this. So that there is no more sad tragedies like this. No innocent patient looses his or her life in the negligence by the system. Whatever happened at PGI in

Writing everyday is not a tough job. But getting ideas daily is a tough job. Sometimes it becomes repetition of old topics. It has happened to me. I wrote about corruption, political leaders and many other things. All the time, I have written the same thing. I need your feedbacks to improve my writing style. I have requested you people many times. May be your feedbacks can give me some new topics to research and write again with some more added stuff. Actually a feedback always energizes me to write in a better way. So read my blogs and start writing.

Maoist. A word which has become menace for the central and state governments in
One thing which I ask myself is that why isn’t the government using harsh steps to stop all these things. It’s clear that these Maoists can’t be handled by the state police. There is always misunderstanding and lack of coordination between the police of two states. And Maoists are taking advantage of this weakness. As far as I have observed then I have found and observed that these Maoists people are using innocent people as their backup. They are getting mass support by hook or crook. And then these Maoists use the mass as their protection shield. So instead of state police running after them, the central government should press army or
So in my view, instead of having peace talks, its time for action. When Special Task Force (STF) can be formed by the state governments of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh to nab Verrappan, why can’t the central government form a separate task force with the central command in one of the Maoist affected states to eliminate Maoists? These people understand the language of bullets. So its time to talk with them in the language they understand very well.

Relationship. This word has different meanings according to the need of human being. But why is it necessary to make relationship? What’s the importance of relationship in our life? After thinking a lot, I have got few answers to these questions. Well, you can say that I took so much time in searching and thinking about these two questions. You might think that I’m a bit crazy. But you ask the same question to yourself also. I think you will get some answer. Well, I’m going to discuss the answers which I got with you people.
Well any type of relationship is necessary for a human being. A human being can’t stay alone. A human needs company to share his emotions with other human being. According to me, relationship makes life beautiful, comfortable, peaceful and happy. It might sound something abstract to you. But this is the fact which I have observed. We get comfort, peace and happiness when we are with friends, family members and with someone who is dear to us. And if someone is getting all these things then his or her life automatically becomes beautiful. Just test it for few days like I did. You will feel the same as I did.

And to some extend, they are been guarded by the departmental proceedings also. They can only be suspended if they are caught. If they are caught. Otherwise they are free to do their corrupt practices. And if they are suspended, then also they are eligible to withdraw half of their salaries. And once they are inducted again then they will get the half salary of their suspension tenure as arrears. What the hell is this? The ministers and leaders only give long speeches to eradicate corruption form our country. But they are not taking any action to eradicate it. Now its time to change the law also. Instead of suspending the corrupt officers when they are caught, they should be terminated from the service and should be put behind the bars. There should be no bail granted to them on any condition. Time has come to take some harsh steps and decisions. Otherwise, the system is not going to change by mere speeches and assurances. It's the time for some action.

But there are many drawbacks in this plan. On the surface, it looks like a nice scheme where the government is really taking pains for the upliftment of the poor. Under this scheme, 100 days of employment is been guranteed at the wage of Rs 100 per day. This scheme is to benefit those who are unemployed for the major part of the year. Taking one adult from each household in the village, this scheme is engaging them in construction work. Till now 2.6 crore households has been registered in this scheme. But not so much surprisingly only 53 lakh household received the full payment of 100 working days at the rate of Rs 100 per day. I mean to say that only 53 lakh household out of 2.6 crore households have received the full payment of Rs 10,000. What about other people? Where is their money? Then I found that there is no direct transfer of money from the Central Government to the bank account of the labourer who has worked. There are five layers between the Central Government and the labourer though which the money flows. Those five layers are: Central Employment Gurantee Council at Centre, then State Employment Gurantee Council in every State, then District Panchayat at District level, then there is an Intermediate Panchayat at the block level followed by the Gram Panchayat at the village to which the labourer belongs to. Indeed a very long chain of people in between and hence the long chain for money to change hands. Isn't it?
Now lets have a look to the construction work been done. Several ponds were constructed in those areas which have scarcity of rain. What a great planning? Instead of digging wells to solve the water problem, ponds are been constructed. Then the roads were constructed to connect villages or the remote areas to the rest of the country. Nice planning. But the quality of the construction of those roads is so bad that it will be washed away in the first rain itself. Again a nice planning. I find this to be simple wastage of time, money and the human labour. Is there anyone in the Union Cabinet who can rectify these drawbacks? Is Union Finance Minister looking at this? This is simply misutilization of the public money. I remeber that he recommended the Union Council Ministers to travel by economy class in all the airlines to save the public money. Is the misutilization of public money in schemes like NREGS valid? Won't he do anything to stop this? I'm not against the schemes like NREGS. But I advocate for some positive type of construction and proper utilization of public money. I hope that the Planning Commission will look after the drawbacks of NREGS and will sort it out soon before it turns into a fiasco.

Because I’m here for quality writing not for quantity writing. So to improve my writing standard or writing style I need your support and feedbacks. If you have negative feedbacks also then also let me know the drawbacks of my writings. Now I am waiting for your comments.

Mr Sibbal is defending his decision that this will take off the pressure from the students who appears for these exams. But in reality, it’s going to make the matter more worse than its now. This is not going to help the students. And he was talking about the grading system instead of the present percentage system. Now this will totally destroy the merit of the students. Now if we get a look into this then the picture will be something like this.
Generally, Grade A is given to all those students who get more than 70%. Now compare two students who have got 75% and 95%. Now both of them will be in the same grade. Now who will then decide that which student is more intelligent and meritorious in between two students? You can’t differentiate them as both of them are having Grade A. It will kill the motive of studying and hence the spirit of competition will die out.
Now let’s come back to the main point. Mr Sibbal wants to make the Class X board exam an optional exam. Means those students who want to continue in the same school then they will not give the exams. The exams will be for them who want to discontinue from the school. Now this proposal is, also, having disadvantages in it. More and more students will avoid the Class X exams now. They will say that they want to continue in the same school. Then the burden will be there on the school administration to provide the option of other subjects which these students. Not all of them will go to a particular stream. And in the Class XII, again the situation will be worse. Those students who have skipped their Class X exams will not have the exposer to the pattern of exams of CBSE. They won’t be able to cope up and their marks will go down.
So instead of helping the students, Mr Sibbal is playing with the future of all the students of the country who are studying in the schools under CBSE Board. So now, its we, who have to decide that whether we allow this ridiculous pattern or just remain silent and support it and let our coming generation suffer due to this.

The second good thing which the voters did was to turn the thumbs down to those people who were having criminal records. Just like in Bihar, Sahabbudin lost from Siwan constituency. So now, it’s very easy to prosecute the criminals. It wasn’t easy as they were enjoying certain privileges as been the elected representatives of the people.
So in the election, people have voted very intelligently. No one knew that in which direction the wind will flow. And the result was like a silent storm. The result was totally unpredictable. Any way, it’s good that this time, we are having more or less a stable government.
