Well i made it.. lets see you like it or not!!

A big war is on for territory, and it looks like India is fighting Bharat on many fronts.
In Bengal, Orissa, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, governments are acquiring huge tracts of land for projects that, as the Supreme Court said yesterday, enrich a few at the expense of many.
Governments hand over cheaply and forcibly acquired land to private companies to develop expressways, housing colonies, mines, and factories. (In pre-liberalisation times, the government would have set up public sector units, but it now only talks of private-public partnerships, coming across to the deprived as a dalal acting on behalf of the moneybags).
The land-owners, mostly small farmers, aren't giving up so easily. They look at it this way: "The city-slickers have money, bulldozers, and a convenient land acquisition law to back them. But we still have one weapon: our vote."
Land wars exact a heavy toll. The CPM, for example, didn't take protesting Singur and Nandigram farmers seriously, and as a result, comprehensively lost Bengal, a state it had ruled for three decades. The land wars are spilling over into politics in many other states as well.
The moment Mamata Banerjee came to power in Bengal, she passed a law to take back land that the CPM government had handed over to Tata Motors. She has a promise to keep: returning land to farmers angered by the CPM's forcible acquisition. The Tatas, after suffering a setback in the High Court, are now approaching the Supreme Court. The battle has cost both parties dear. The protesters have lost lost their lives and property, the Tatas are losing a lot of money, and the CPM has suffered humiliation.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati faces assembly elections in a year, and is getting jittery about the land battle in her state. She has been rapped by the courts for taking fertile land away from Noida farmers to help real-estate developers. She has also faced widespread protests and demonstrations. Rahul Gandhi has been quick to seize the political opportunity; the Congress is celebrating hisbirthday as Farmers' Rights Day from this year.
Other leaders are uneasy, too. As Reuters reports about Posco, "The ... protests are another storm warning in an environment growing increasingly hostile to what many Indians see as a nexus of corrupt politicians and businessmen profiting from kickbacks and forced land acquisition as foreign firms vie for a place in the Indian market."
Over the last two days, people in Orissa have been stalling Posco employees from fencing off a huge area for their steel plant. The agitation against the steel plant is already six years old. Even those supporting the project are angry that Posco is giving out work to contractors from outside the region; they will allow work to progress only if their demand for work is met. The state government isunlikely to renew its contract with Posco by the end of this month, when it is due.
Orissa is saying children shouldn't be roped in for the agitations, but women and children have remained in the forefront of the movement to keep Posco away. Karnataka faces similar problems. Between Bangalore and Mysore, a private road builder has acquired thousands of acres, some of it allegedly by fraud, and is charging the highest toll in India. JD(S) leader H D Deve Gowda is rallying farmer against highway builder Ashok Kheni.
The government's failure to rehabilitate displaced people hardly makes news, but the rural-urban divide is starkly exposed every time a land agitation makes it to the headlines. One way out has been for the farmers to form co-operatives and negotiate with industrialists who want to buy their land. That way, they get the best deal, and are in control of their own lives. Another is to change the land acquisition law, and forcing governments to be more responsible to their people. The centre has beentalking of a new law that is favourable to farmers. The earlier that comes into force, the more conflicts we may be able to avert.

New Delhi: Rajiv Bajaj, the managing director of Bajaj Auto, is a fitness freak and does yoga every morning. Till some time back, he used to play football with the company's workers in Pune, till an injury happened. Unknown to the outside world, for the last couple of years, he has read voraciously on homeopathy.
Those who know Bajaj well say that the passion for alternate medicine comes from his close friendship of over seven years with Mukesh Batra who runs a famous chain of homeopathy clinics across the country. Last year, Bajaj took the friendship a step further and became the principal sponsor for the Positive Health Awards instituted by Batra.
Bajaj Auto, for the record, has avoided celebrities to endorse its motorcycles and three-wheelers; still, Bajaj and Batra roped in Bollywood's top stars, from Shah Rukh Khan to Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, to support the cause.
Bajaj sees a deep connection between business and homeopathy, which is invisible to others. "Homeopathy is based on the concept of individualisation where the doctor looks at the person and not just the problem that he has. Contrary to looking at things piecemeal, I found that if one looks at things holistically, as homeopathy does, if one looks at one's business more holistically, one is likely to achieve solutions that are sustainable over time."
Bajaj is ready to take his love for alternate medicine/ therapy a step further: He is starting the Homoeopathy Yoga Centre in Pune which will, for the first time anywhere in the world, bring the two streams, one Indian and the other European, together under one roof.

More than five million people have been displaced or otherwise affected by flooding, as torrential rains continues to lash eastern and southern China. On the other hand many streams and lakes along the Yangtze River have almost dried up. The world's third-largest river -- stretching from the Himalayas thousands of miles to the east meeting the sea -- has been experiencing its worst drought in decades. Almost 35 million people across five provinces on the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze have been affected to different degrees by the drought. Chinese officials say extreme weather caused by climate change is to blame.

NEW DELHI: Whenever DMK MP Kanimozhi comes out of Tihar Prisons, the literature loving leader will have acquired one more skill -- candle making. During her past over one month stay in the women's cell at the high security jail, Kanimozhi has, in her spare time, taken interest in the candle making unit and learnt how to make candles from her co-inmates, sources at Tihar Prisons said.
Candle making is one of the vocational courses introduced by Tihar authorities to keep inmates connected to the outside world through competition and skill enhancement.
A candle making unit exists in Jail number six which houses women inmates. Made by the women prisoners, scented candles are used inside the jail and also sold as jail factory products.
Kanimozhi, along with Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, was sent to Tihar jail on May 20 after a special CBI court rejected her bail plea and ordered her "forthwith" arrest in in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.
Prison sources said the DMK Rajya Sabha member also spends her leisure reading books.
Concerned over her security, authorities have converted an office room inside the women's prison into a cell and kept her there away from other prisoners.
Even after her bail plea was rejected twice by the courts, Kanimozhi was never found to be upset and behaved well with all the people she came across inside the jail, the sources said.
Her father DMK chief M Karunanidhi her mother, Rajathi Ammal, along with others visited her on Tuesday. They had brought many packets of Murukku, a popular snack for her.
Unlike her high profile neighbours, Kanimozhi has a slew of people coming to meet her everyday. DMK leaders are lined up in front of Gate No 3 on Jail Road to visit her.
