NDTV show: Should blogs be regulated?

NDTV recently did a talk ashow with Barkha dutt and the topic was should blogs be regulated,, Its real sad and pathetic that they could not find any better/interesting topic. Here is my view--

On a bigger level, could/should internet be regulated? Regulation is never a long term solution, it leads to corruption, tension and other problems.

Seeing some part of video here is what came out, Barkha has very limited knowledge about blogs and features available. If i go for blogs which have lots of sexual material, the number would be very small, however her interest was there only..I think INdia is the Land of the kamasutra but 2 scared to admit sex as a reality and talk about it...

Barkha i think will manage to get lot of publicity by this and lot of popularity (badnaami hui to kiya hua, naam to hua), in this present age where there are dozens of news channels with even more talk shows and news in which people are not interested, if you can catch peoples attention its a good feat.

I could not manage to see whole video, but the talk debate is so pointless and toothless probably i wont waste more time on it also..

here is another opinion on this show

Delhi bloggers meet XXI

Delhi bloggers met at blues and it had a bigger attendance than usual, probably because it was the 4th aniv. meet of the delhibloggers yahoo grp members. Fairy has done a nice job of making all of us stick for this time.

Only lalit has posted his pics, i did not take my cam and waiting for more people.

Probably the last minute confusion because of the other Bloggers group that has recently formed helped to increase the interest in this meet for all the members of this group. Propelled everybody to come out more openly. Larger number of people makes for some interesting interactions and this meet turned out to be a much better experience than the previous ones. Probably booze and music also helps :-)

A video was also being made and i waiting for it. Many people did not know about my bribe blog and i think it made people realise that blogs can be a medium of change, to raise social awareness and not just a webpage with random rants and views.

Rupali and Sanjay made the event success, rupali with her management and Sanjay with the cake and his ever present smile. And the rest with whom it was a pleasure meeting :-)

Met a person working for ibibo, i called it desi orkut/facebook and the expression/reaction was interesting :-)

I am looking forward to when we meet next...

Nano and traffic

With the latest launch of nano by tata, everybody has started worrying about the traffic,, and it is outrightly stupid..Why-

  • 2 wheelers provide better average and are cheaper to maintain..So all 2 wheeler people wont shift. Those who buy premium bikes, buy for fun, not because of economy.
  • And car under 1 lack was available (though second hand) and the EMI culture made also the car with 3-3.5 lack bracket affordable..
We need to applaud the tata wonder, the engineering and cost marvel they have done. It should be a nano inspiration.

Questions

  • How is calling someone a monkey a racist comment?
  • Why is it easier to find reasons to not do a thing, than to do it?
Second question comes from the fact that people find more reasons to not introduce the I-card checking in Delhi. Because we are scared of bribing?? Because we bribe without a fight..

Sportsman spirit lost

All those who play or played cricket ever lost one thing in this India-Australia series, the sportsman spirit. Now when i teach my child cricket or football i should also teach them to cheat? And be proud about cheating if you fool the umpire.. We had cricketing examples in the past when players walked off when they were out but given not out by umpires...Now thats history...Nobody i think will be doing a thing like it ever again..coz in todays world its not sportsman spirit its being foolish.. In todays world all your ethics and values have become foolishness, what is important is how to fool others and gain benefit.

Earlier it was the match fixing scandal which made me realise how big a fool i am in believing in the matches and the game,,,and now it plain pure cheating...and even worse being defiant about it..
