Shit+Fan = A stinking bloody mess

Not an impossible equation to work out really - but yesterday at Hyderabad mallya was answering in platitudes and slagged me off for not knowing type ratings (when I asked about the fact that there is virtually no commonality in his and Jet's fleets) and how to run an airline. Obviously forgetting the simple fact that evidently nor does he. To be fair to Naresh Goyal, at least the chap has slept on the floor at one time in hisd life and actually sounded apologetic about firing people. Anyway, I don't want to make this an aviation post, but I really think that government money should not be handed out to rich mofo's who can't run their businesses properly. And since I believe that at least ten per cent of any bail-out package will fund the NCP, well that pisses me off further. By the way, India's favourite son-in-law (and I don't mean Dr. Tankha) was at the air-show today looking up private jets, Mummy-ji is making noises against the 'statuesque' Mayawati but Robert is already looking for a plane to fly out of India if things get hairy in April. Hmmm...
Plus, how on earth do people in Hyderabad read such tripe,, between them ToI Hyderabad and Deccan Chronicle have next to no news. ToI Hyderabad seemed to have missed the firing story concentrating more on the fact that there was an airshow where the Minister spoke - instead of the Laurel and Hardy act of NG and VJM (And I will get hell for what I just wrote)... but anyways. Oh and DC is well, horrible is maybe too harsh a term, but thank god for the internet. More when I get back to the city - tonight is Biryani night!

We read The Hindu!

Even in Gulti land serious readers (i.e. voting class, decision makers etc..) read local papers like Eenadu, AJ, Siasat and such stuff and outsiders who don't have much stake in the city read Gossip churning papers like ToI and DC..

People do 'buy' The Hindu - because displaying The Hindu (not sure how many take N. Ram's rag seriously these days) in the living room and playing classical music when visitors are around are still 'intellectual' things in that part of the world.. :-)

I see you've deleted some of the posts you got from the 'going slow' blog! So has someone been leaning on you as well? I won't be surprised at all, because truth, does hurt!!
