Khobragade fallout: American puppet NGO rejects funds from the US

Image
Its not just the Indian government that has decided to initiate strong steps against the US for their action against Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade. Yesterday, a group that is spearheading the protest against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project rejected a fresh tranche of $1 million released by a US NGO to register their 'anguish' over the 'unwarranted' US action.

The so called People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE) returned the money at a grand function organised in Chennai. “We have decided to return the money to our US handlers to show solidarity with a fellow citizen and to attract some publicity to our dying cause. We will not be taking this money at all even though without this money, even the 3 people who are the last remaining PMANE members may decide to walk off. This shows our guts, resolve and the confusion prevailing in our minds,” a PMANE release said.

PMANE co-ordinator S. P. Udayakumar was in Disneyland, Florida on a 'official' tr…

Why did North Korea’s Kim Jong-un spare his aunt?

The aunt of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has survived her husband's downfall and execution, and was named to an ad hoc state committee over the weekend. The reason behind her survival is not Kim’s magnanimity but is instead due to a promise she made to Kim Jong.

Yi Kya Hui, the aunt of Kim Jong was spared after she promised not to nag the boy blunder over the growing size of his waistline. It seems on a prior occasion, at a family gathering, Hui replaced the photo of Kim Jong on the family dinner table with that of a polar bear. Kim Jong was quite distressed seeing the pic. He was more annoyed when Hui while giggling stated that compared to Kim Jong, the polar bear appears to be malnourished.

Kim was so angry that day that he only had one bottle of Nutella as compared to the 7 he has for dinner. But later on, when threatened, Hui offered to mend her ways and promised Kim that she would never discuss his weight, ever.  That statement appears to have saved her from imminent exec…

Employee affected by bad appraisal seeks national debate

Image
The appraisal season has brought much gloom and doom in Bangalore. An employee of a bellwether IT firm claims that his employer handed him a bad appraisal. He was so angry with the IT firm that he called for a national debate on his performance and asked the Indian government to convene a special parliament session to discuss his case.

Eaheinomauwe (not his real name) says “when people can call for a national debate on all sorts of issues, they can also have one on my performance in 2013. My manager says my performance was exceptional and that I had a wonderful future waiting for me. But he also said that I had certain weak areas which  needed work and so to incentivise my efforts, he told me that he was giving me a oki-dokie rating and a less than industry average hike. This is grossly unfair”.

Eaheinomauwe added that he wanted his appraisal to be taken up in the ongoing winter session of parliament and that it would be great if Arnab Goswami could grill his immediate manager and hi…

Nawaz Sharif is farther away from earth than India’s Mars spacecraft: Pakistan Army

Image
In a moment of unrestrained candor, Pakistan today admitted that its premier and most citizens were not in touch with reality when it came to matters concerning India. The admission was made by none other than Pakistan’s new army chief General Raheel Sharif at an army ceremony in GHQ in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.

“Mian Sharief (Nawaz Sharif) claims that Pakistan army will give a disproportionate response to any Indian misadventure. Now, what does he mean? Has he seen the size of the Indian Army? Anything we do will obviously be disproportionate. Our standard response when it comes to war with India has always been hit and run as far as you can from the battlefield and I don’t see that changing in my lifetime or yours,” General Sharif said.

“When it comes to India and her capabilities, we cannot even sustain a stone-age conflict. Sharif and most of my fellow citizens talk as though we can engage in a conflict of any nature and size with India. For such weed smokers, I only have one thing …
