Stooping to conquer

I am getting tempted to write political posts, despite all my resolutions to stay away from that area. The culprit is my good friend Sriram who continuously tempts me in that direction with incisive writing in his excellent blog. We then debate and counter debate on email !!

So made a guest post there - taking the crazy liberty of  writing a letter to the President of the United States !

  1. so, that then brings up an arithmetic problem about the 500th post you noted a week ago ...
    if i count your guest-posts at my blog, then you reached the 500 even earlier, right?
    ok, ok, i know you meant 500th at your own blog ... but, just sayin' :)

  2. Wow, I loved that letter to BO. If you can imagine a 'national' govt in India made of a coalition of competent administrators rather than a coalition of opportunists that we have today, things could be vastly different.

  3. @sriram - I freely admit to being arithmetically challenged !!

    @Kiwi - Now, that's a great idea.

  8. so very relevant... who says it was political post... there was a sense of truth in your every word... I wish the same suggestions can at least tempt our own political class (some day) and teach them how to run the nation...

  9. @Vishal - There is very little salvation for our political class. I despair of the society we have become - after all our political class accurately reflects us, the people.

  10. Your writing is very insightful so would love to see your take on politics, there is one website i love to read and that is mediacrooks.com http://www.mediacrooks.com/2012/10/thank-you.html#.UH5XZdkcSvd

    Your views are usually very nicely put together and ur political viewpoint will be interesting to read. Do write and maybe tweet too... BTW - do u have a twitter id?
