Ironically, this actually represents how the Fund Houses consider the small customers who put in their life savings in these funds.


A couple of articles came up in Times of India in Monday’s edition which show the increasing chinese influence in India both politically and economically, and praise lord for the strong leadership in the center (!) I wonder what’s coming in future.
"The area along line of actual control (LAC) with China has shrunk over a period of time and India has lost substantial chunk of land in the last two decades, says an official report."
"…it was another attempt by the Chinese to claim the territory as disputed in the same fashion as they had taken Nag Tsang area opposite to Phuktse airfield in 1984, Nakung in 1991 and Lungma-Serding in 1992."
"Last year, Chinese troops had entered nearly 1.5 km into the Indian territory on July 31 near Mount Gya recognised as international border by India and China…"
India has traditionally been very accomodating with the Chinese, with the Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai rhetoric, which the Chinese fail to comprehend (probably because of the differences in the dialects of the two countries), and fails to see or learn from the mistakes done in the past. Blame it on the strength of the central ledership or the lack of pride the political influence the Chinese have on the world and India isn’t going to end in the near past.
"…Larsen & Toubro has said that China is systematically killing Indian manufacturing sector…"
"There are taxes on goods manufactured locally, but none on imported products (from China). This is an unfair situation for Indian goods."
"…80% of our dependence for power plant equipment is on one country, and that too China…"
I bet, anyone has missed noticing the usual “Made in China” tags in their daily shopping! From furniture to coasters to cutleries. Mobile phones to computer parts to pirated software. And from petty keepsakes sold at traffic signals to heavy industrial machineries. A surprisingly huge number of items sold in Indian market is actually Chinese. They are doing in almost all consumer/industrial goods what India did to US and Europe in Software Development, and worse part is they’re catching up in Software too, pretty fast.
For starters, I since the last year have stopped buying products with a “Made in China” tag.

Why do people Honk?

People honk because they have to wait at a Red traffic signal. Honk because the signal is Green.

Honk because the guy in front isn’t moving fast. Because the guy behind is trying to overtake. Because someone overtakes from left. Because someone overtakes from right. Honk just because someone is going faster.

Honk because people keep walking in the middle of the road and not use Zebra Crossing. Honk because people walk on Zebra Crossing which government made in the middle of the road.

Honk because someone else honked. Honk because it’s so quite so be the first!

Honk because they’re angry. Honk because they’re happy. Just because they want to express all of their emotions.

Honk because they’re in a hurry. Honk because they’re lazy.

Honk because they want to show off. Honk because they do not like someone else showing off.

Honk because they see something interesting. Honk because they missed seeing it.

Well people honk because on the road they don’t have a sane head but just a car with a Horn.


Microsoft has released the Office Web companions integrated with SkyDrive in a limited beta.
Using this we would be able to View/Edit/Share online, Office documents including Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Onenote
BTW this is just a beta and leaves a few things desired, for instance, embedding, with inplace viewing, the document in any site (aka SlideShare).
