God is One??

I always keep hearing people say 'God is One','God is One'..

But, in my new religion 'God is Zero'

Australian Model for Higher Education in India?

During my under-graduation days, I always wondered why we were being charged so little for the education that we were receiving. If the rest of my life, I am gonna earn my bread and butter based upon the education that I am receiving today, surely they can charge better than the couple of thousands that Mumbai University used to charge me.

Anyways, Abi at Nanopolitan has a post about replicating the Australian model as a fair mechanism for funding our universities.

Will reserve my comments for later. But, certainly a thought that can be worked upon.

Paaji Convicted

Navjot Singh Sidhu has been convicted in a murder case. The High Court convicted him by overturning the acquittal by the lower court. Wonder what is in store for Paaji now!!

BJP MP and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu was today convicted by the Punjab and Haryana High Court for causing the death of a Patiala resident following a scuffle in 1989, overturning his acquittal by a lower court.

A division bench comprising Justices Mehtab Singh Gill and Baldev Singh found 43-year-old Sidhu guilty of culpable homocide not amounting to murder and fixed December 6 for pronouncing the quantum of sentence.
Well, the judgement is yet to be delievered and the mandotary appeal in the Supreme Court is also to be done. Lets see where this story goes now. Hope the next judgement, if their appeal in Supreme Court gets accepted is not delievered after another 18 years.
