Dissection of Sunday Newspaper

"Govt finds most Auto meters faulty".
Gosh! Govt found it now? Each and every citizen of Delhi has known it, for years. What a stunning discovery, by the Govt! I should add.

"Paying Ransom is a harsh reality, says Anant's father".
Naresh Gupta had to pay about Rs. 50 lakhs to rescue his son Anant from the kidnappers. Now the Income Tax Department is after him. IT people must be saying to him - "Where is our share man? You paid Rs. 50 lakh to the kidnappers - we also want our cut on that - 30% - nothing less."
On further thinking, maybe the finance minister can pass a law in his coming budget by which money earned by kidnappings will be taxed @ 30% in the hands of kidnappers and probably @ 20% from the person paying the ransom.

"$10,160 per year is poor in US? That's rich"
According to US Government guidelines, as of 2005, an individual with an annual income of less then $10,160 or a family of two with annual income less then $13,708 is considered to be below poverty line.
Wow! That deserves a party. I'll give all my colleagues a treat tomorrow. You know, I just came to know that, I am above the poverty line - although barely, but anyway - a very big achievement, I should add.

On a serious note-

"We were young and crazy to think we would succeed..."
"Authors are getting younger and younger. What's their winning formula?"
It describes two 17 years old twins - Suresh and Jyoti Guptara have written a book and got it published. A nice article, which also inspired me to write something and guess what? To begin with, I ended up writing this crap post - you are reading now.

"Venus Samosas and Mars Bars"
In this article Bachi Karkaria writes about the samosa. Sunita Williams carried a packet of samosas on the Discovery Mission. Samosas not only rule every nook and corner of the world, but will now rule the space too. A good humorous article.

Times Life has a big nice photograph of Aishwarya Rai, beautifully dressed in green, on the cover page and in big bold green letters it says - "I want to get Married!".
Gosh! I have been waiting for you to say that, for so many years. Come on, let's get married tomorrow itself. Should I come to receive you at the airport? Then we'll go straight to a temple and get our saat phere.

So my dear readers, see you after our marriage! Bye, bye till then.
