The year 2008 had been volatile with India emerging high as well as seeing some low. I have here some 10 events of 2008 that gave me a lot of hope and happiness, though some even very personal.
August 30, 2008 Saturday: It has become now a routine for me. At 8 PM I switch on TV news channels of my choice to watch and hear the debates on current nation issues in which some of the topmost personalities in their area of expertise participate.

One of the greatest attributes of India is in its diversity and in lies its admiration, and that it pronounces the soul and success of the country.
Regarding your article PM, Sonia Gandhi to Visit Bihar on Thursday, it is true that Soniaji or Singh Saheb would not have come to their annual visit if there was no flood. I feel ashamed that they did come after being compelled by Laluji perhaps, in normal case they might not have come. And their visit would do nothing except being a hindrance in the way of help to the affected people in the flood affected area. After all they are VVIPs with Z-security.
It’s again a sad story of inaction. According to unconfirmed reports, hundreds of people have been washed away.

Seeing the protests in Singur, TATA is thinking of moving out of WB. So, is it not the time that even Bihar should offer TATA to establish their new plant?

I would like to take few moments to make an appeal to all Biharis and who feel proud to be called as Biharis. I will take the news of Mr. Upendra Kushwaha as an example to appeal to everyone that please don’t fell prey to cheap and dirty politics anymore.

My teacher at Patna University when I was a Ph. D student in 1972 said very sarcastically that nothing can grow in the soil of Bihar. He had experience of 40 yrs and now I repeat the same version after almost same lapse of time what my teacher said long before. Actually this state is sick and infested with so many maladies, which is greatest inhibition in the progress. Casteism, nepotism favoritism, paisa, pairwi and political excess are the six somnolent which is obliterating the entire development of the state.
Bihar government is contemplating to ban plastics in any form and want to introduce plastic rules of 1999. Any person, shop, or vendor found violating the rules will be punished.
With a billion people, the Republic of India with a population of nearly four times that of the United States is the world's largest democracy.
