A Quickie on What’s Happening in India

Am not sure about what happens in other countries but going through the news over here is quite an adventure. It’s always filled with outrageous accusations, out of this world incidents and some just plain funny. Here is a quick rundown of what’s happening in India.  


A PETA activist suggested a Vegetarian Eid in Bhopal India and she got attacked by Islamist extremists.

The recent tragic flood in Jammu and Kashmir became a battle ground, a blame game for different political parties, with all the parties attacking the other parties instead of focusing on how to handle the situation! Thank God, the brave Indian Army went all the way and beyond in helping those in distress.

A TV news reader had to be suspended because she pronounced Xi Jinping, the President of China as Eleven Jingin because she thought ‘Xi’ was something like a roman number. While the Indian government was in talk with the Chinese President on how to improve trade between the two countries, Chinese troops and some civilian intruded into India in Ladakh.

I really hope the flood disaster in Assam right now won’t become another battle ground for our political parties.

The whole of India is going nuts over Deepika Padukone’s cleavage article from Times of India.

The History channel is becoming less history and more whatever is in right now. Right now I can’t even think of any show that focuses on history, plus their shows on aliens keeps getting funnier and funnier.

In the ongoing Asian Games in Incheon, the Indian women football team won Maldives by 15 – 0. Why can’t the Indian men team achieve something like this?

It seems the most googled thing in South India right now is pictures of Sunny Leone’s navel.

  1. Nice write up.

    For Deepika episode, I think it is blown out of proportion.

    Sunny Leone - Well, her arrival in India has showed the another picture of our society. Who can be accepted, who can't be.

    Yes, Hats Off to Indian Army for helping the stranded people in J&K.

    For Amazon.in, I yesterday ordered a Book "Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khalid Hossani. Remember, 60% off is going on in Amazon for selected books. Go for it.

    As for your writing, two thumbs up. Do write more on current events.
