The Indian rubber spinal cord

1. Ghulam Nabi Fai was a front of ISI and the government didn't do anything with the people who were hobnobbing with him.
If it had been any country with a pride, they would have detained them the first instance of acts against their own country. Instead Mr. Palgaonkar is leading the interlocutors team.

2. Marxists Govt in Kerala and WB asked for FDI and still they think there is nothing wrong in it. Why do they have the label of CPI (M) if they have to follow policies which is against their so called principles? (

3. Ministers declared their assets and all of them went above crores except a few. Does that mean they are honest? WTF common sense claims that go and find out how could they get so many assets?

Just a little bit, a tiny-winy straightening up of the help would help erect a nation stand straight. The rubbery flexible spinal cord is visible in the daily life on how people bend backwards to accommodate all the bad things in the garb of being tolerant.

Music Plagiarism in India

'Oye Oye' song of Tridev film (1988) for lack of my articulation skills can be described as 'smashing' 'out of the box' 'daring' etc. and as a pre-teen guy along with my gang of school friends we enjoyed listening and shouting on top of our voice feeling a sense of being on top of the world.

For a long time I thought Viju Shah & Kalyanji-Anandji gave a good innovative hit song but until I heard Gloria Estefan's "Rhythm is Gonna get you". Though it was in early 90s when some of us figured out that plagiarism is not a shame but it's a money making non-illegal business in India. Anu (or Annu or Malik quite famous for this even in his interviews foolishly used to describe his blatant copying of AR Rehman's and Ilaiyaraja's music as inspirations and not as "copy". My awareness still remained that cheating, copying happened with only few folks such as Anu, Bappi, Nadeem-Shravan. But feels sorry that it is everywhere and after searching for such info in the happening world of internet this awesome site is a good starting point for anyone who wants to be aware of music plagiarism in India. Even old timers like Shankar-Jaikishen figures in the list :-(. The decent guys out of this lot still came down to ARR and Ilaiy who only have used a part of the tunes and not full blown copying that will ring a familiarity for regular music goers...
