If passengers are burnt alive inside a rail compartment, the railway staff, such as the coach attendant and Railway Police on duty on the train, are totally responsible and the rail minister should own moral responsibility and resign for failing to provide security to passengers. Isn’t it in the name of passenger amenities and safety […]
America grants another 4 years to President Obama. He has been receiving congratulations from all the four corners of the world. I too join in sending my best wishes to Mr Obama for such a stunning victory, which is a sign of his popularity with the American people. As a political analyst and current affairs […]
The question whether the expansion of the English language is going to wipe out the other languages of the world in the near future is a serious one indeed. While Britannia may no more rule the world, its language seems to do so. Everybody is keen to use it. The number of learners and users […]
The silken Mars landing of the Curiosity today is very inspiring to all those who love ideas and innovations. Why does the apple always fall to the ground?
