What happens in the west stays in the west

A lot of the things I have been thinking about the UN and its Humanitarian mission has been really well put in this article

For years, the US and the NATO countries have been trying to vanquish the Al Qaeda and the Taliban, without much success. In the past decade, the US and other western militaries, operating in Iraq and Afghanistan to take just two recent examples, have killed and maimed scores of civilians. But except for cursory apologies, none of these nations or the defenders of human rights operating from the safe havens of western capitals have bothered to even acknowledge their gross mistakes.

Quadraple Standards

The government of SA apparently wants to cash in on the world cup mania in a very unique way.. 😀

Thrives

Durban’s municipality said Germany had many adult entertainment centres during the World Cup in 2006, which were very popular with visitors.

It said while prostitution was illegal in South Africa, it could not ignore the fact that the sex industry thrives during major events like the World Cup.

To address this, entertainment centres such as strip clubs and escort agencies would be located in special areas where they would be safe and easily accessible.

Municipality Deputy Mayor Logie Naidoo said a final decision had not yet been taken.

“The national government will give us a lead in this matter, whether it relates to the 2010 Soccer World Cup or any other time for that matter,” he said.

There are a few glaring things that need to be noted. One obviously being that the law for legal prostitution would exist only for the time the WC lasts. This prooves that yet another culture thinks they are morally righteous but foriegners aren’t .. 😀 so prostitution is only for the “visitors” from other countries.. the other is that the country is trying to fight AIDS which is crippling its population and yet instead of cracking down on it they are trying to cash in on a business which will most definately promote its spread… hmmmm… according to me though prostitution should be leagalised… its done behind doors anyway in any society… legalising it would reduce the number of people who go looking for it cause its not forbidden any more.. 😀 😀

Parents should be informed that student went to pee in college

The Scheduled Caste Commission chairman has summoned the IIT Director to explain why it had asked 12 of its Scheduled Caste students to leave the institute mid-course.

The commission took this step after three of the ousted SC students came to it last week.

”We were singled out even when we did better. We were not marked properly. We were also not given proper guidance to make us do better,” says one of the aggrieved student Ravinder Kumar

Nonsense has no bounds i believe it does not stop here it goes on

”The institutes are supposed to inform parents if students are not doing well and also provide them with back up support to ensure that they improve their academic standards. But this was not done. We have asked the director to hear the students’ complaints personally,” says Buta Singh, Chairman, SC Commission.

The thing that aggrieved me when i was in college was that in the second semester the government actually brought about good changes my abolishing the Madras University, bringing in the anna university syllabus and a grade point average. By the fourth semester all that was scrapped since parents could not understant the GPA system and could not “monitor” how well their “kids” did in college as opposed to a 98/100 “marks”… 

Middle class morality

About 50 years ago cultural/moral policeman in a culturally conservative country called USA curbed the comic book culture for its evil influence.

“Everybody read comic books. They were the most popular form of entertainment in America,” he said.

The fact that such entertainment was primarily aimed at children and teens raised the ire of authorities, including social scientists, newspaper columnists and political leaders. These works, they believed, were causing crime and degeneracy. They had to be stopped.

Towns hosted bonfires to rid themselves of comics; congressional hearings about the issue helped burnish the image of Tennessee’s Estes Kefauver, who had led hearings against organized crime”

50 years later I see a mob culture has developed in India that is no diffeferent in either its moral policing tactics ( read all the hallaboo about Jodha Akbar for example ) and is the same in countries like Iran or Afghanistan. What I fail to understand is how come idiots all over India still love to say — This is India not Amrika — We have culture and moral values — Insane losers

I just vomitted on my monitor

The need of the hour in cities in india is proper sex education not taliban type laws

“The state Education Minister Vasant Purke announced this decision in the Assembly on Wednesday. Purke said the decision to include sex education in Class IX and Class XI has been shelved after criticism by Opposition parties. The BJP had said sex education was against Indian culture”

Idiot people all round add a twist to simple education and show what their mentality is…
