'Carelessness and insensitivity' - by K.J.S.Chatrath


Some of us have not been happy at the choice of Gandhiji's spectacles and sometime sketch of his photo as symbols of the highly desirable Swach Bharat Abhiyan.

Last week while travelling to Kedarnath and Badrinath I got another jolt. There were a good number of plastic partitions erected on road side with provision for use as urinals and toilets.

So what is bad about that, you might ask?

Take a closer look. Now got it? How very insensitive and how utterly careless!

Will some one please  tell the Uttrakhand Tourism Organisation to change the offending sketches before  Tough Trump comes to know of it?

'Justin Bieber and all that madness' - by K.J.S.Chatrath

His name is Justin Bieber. He is a singer. He has a soft ladylike face. He seems to have got half his body disfigured by tattoos, which one is told, have deep meanings.

He was in India for 24 hours and all the cream of society seems to have attended the show in Mumbai where he sang and 'performed'.

I have listened to his songs and found those to be just average.

I wonder what is all this hoopla -about!

Are we  short of  'heroes'? No, not really. My heroes are, for example, the brave soldiers who die protecting the unity aand integrity of India.....
