A court in the Indian city of Bhopal has sentenced eight people to two years each in jail over a gas plant leak that killed thousands of people in 1984.
The convictions are the first since the disaster at the Union Carbide plant - the world's worst industrial accident.
The eight Indians, all former plant employees, were convicted of "death by negligence". One had already died - the others are expected to appeal.
Campaigners said the court verdict was "too little and too late".
Forty tonnes of a toxin called methyl isocyanate leaked from the Union Carbide pesticide factory and settled over slums in Bhopal on 3 December 1984.
Twenty-five years after the world's worst industrial disaster, people have finally been held legally responsible.
Just missing my home town, remembering some unique things about it and found this group on FB which has pretty much the whole list why I miss that place.
Some signs of people who grew up in Chandigarh :)
0.) You cross the 'Open Hand' either entering from Zirakpur or Panchkula (opp. Fun Republic)
1.) University elections become more important than MLA, MC elections (SOPU, PUSU bruuahh)
2.) Explaining Gehri to outsiders becomes a tough task
3.) 'Uphill' can only be understood by you
4.) You always have a 'pind' to go to every month
5.) Kaimbwala requires no further defining
6.) You always have a separate budget (after buying a car) for bigger tyres, alloy wheels, stereo, woofer
I saw a question about him on the Q & A forum and realised that people don't exactly know why he got so much hatred against him so thought I will clarify it here.
A lot of people think that Hindu fundamentalists are the only ones who hate Hussein for his stupid paintings about Hindu Gods, well I hate him as an Indian and not because I come from a Hindu family. His painting Rape of India is what pisses me off the most.
1. Representing India as a woman being raped, is nothing but terrible denigration. Showcasing her in this manner is highly outrageous and a completely unacceptable form of denigration.

NEW DELHI: The boy sat hunched, his eyes on the floor and his hands held in a twisted clasp below his knees, clearly uncomfortable with all the attention.
On Wednesday, 14-year-old Sahal Kaushik left everyone gasping in disbelief by not only becoming the youngest ever to crack the tough IIT-JEE test but also topping it in Delhi and notching an all-India rank of 33.
Sahal, schooled at home by his mother, Ruchi Kaushik, a doctor-turned-homemaker, replied after what seemed an eternity to the barrage of questions ^ which IIT would he join? Would he study electronics engineering? He looked up: "I want to study pure science, physics or mathematics, not engineering." He looked down again. "I took the JEE because I could also get science courses through it."
Come one...come all

Just saw Mahesh Manjerakar's Movie - City of Gold
Great Script, good direction taut story...Its a movie loosely based on the Pheonix Mill in Mumbai which has now become the Pheonix Mall.
Most of the sequences and scenes are from real life that had taken place....the stike by Datta Samant...the fire in the mill...the wide spread unemployment....the chawl...the characters in the chawl...the shooting scenes...the grocery store guy...the bandstand peeping tom...etc.
All Mumbaikars would easily identify every characters in the movie....as they would have met such a character in Mumbai.
And you thought you had a bad smoking habit.
Ardi Rizal isn't even out of diapers, but he already smokes around 40 cigarettes every day, according to Metro.co.uk.
The 2-year-old Sumatran boy was given his first cigarette at 18 months by his 30-year-old father, Mohammed. Now, he throws tantrums if he's denied his two-pack-a-day habit, according to his family.
"He's totally addicted," said Ardi's 26-year-old mother, Diana. "If he doesn't get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick."
The overweight tot uses a toy truck to get around instead of being active with other children, according to the report.
India is outraged and has alleged discrimination after Canada refused visas to several Indian officers citing grounds ranging from human rights violation to terrorism. The latest is the case of an Intelligence Bureau (IB) officer being denied a visa.
"We take this matter very, very seriously, that's what I want to say. Of course, the Canadian Foreign Minister has in a public statement stated that Canada has the highest regard for India's democratic institutions and processes and also respect for India's armed forces and related institutions. But let me once again say we did take up the matter, we expressed serious concern and we continue to take this matter very seriously," Foreign Secretary, Nirupama Rao has said.

OK…now IPL is over, as well all the frenzy around it…. now its time to do some introspection…
What do you think will happen to IPL in case it gets nationalized.
Here are 21 things that will happen when the IPL is nationalised
1. The new Commissioner of the IPL, replacing Lalit Modi, will be an IAS officer, 1989 batch, transferred from the Food Corporation of India.
2. Mayawati will demand, however, that the new Chairman should be her own candidate, Mr Dalit Modi .
3. The name of Mumbai Indians will immediately be changed to Mumbai Manus. It will, naturally, field only Maharashtrians.
Gandhi Ji Goes to Heaven [joke]
God asked Lal Bahadur Shastri how many children he had during his time on earth.
He replied, “I had three!”
God was very Happy with the relatively good family planning adopted.
God gave Shastri a Mercedes!
Subhash Chandra Bose was asked the same question.
When he replied that he had 10 children
God was a bit upset and gave him a cheaper car, the Ford.
The next is Jawaharlal. He decided to see what happens if he says he had 15 children.
God is pretty angry and gives him an inexpensive Maruti.
After Sometime, the three saw Mahatma Gandhi returning on foot.
They ask why God hadn’t given him anything
Gandhiji replied with anger,
“Some idiot told God that I was the father of a nation!“
