Enough Already.

It's ... what, about three hours since India won the Cup.

Are we done celebrating yet or are we going to go on and on ...

I'm already dreading being around in 2031 when the 20th anniversary of this great win will come around.

It's tough to extrapolate how much more sillier the media will get from where they are now and how much more silly their questions will get.

I'm sure they will Sachin how he 'felt' back in 2011 when we won the Cup. And I want to say already: come on, give the old man a break, will you?

So, I'm ready to move on with my mundane life.

What's next? Let's see ...

  • Well, GoDaddy's CEO has shot an elephant and expectedly, PETA is up in arms. He's going to get the Scummiest CEO award from PETA ... apparently a brand new award that PETA has invented just for him.
  • The final death toll is yet to be determined in the grim Japanese earthquake/tsunami. The search continues. And the nuclear meltdown disaster continues to unfold too as a unique sideshow.
  • A scary near miss happened with a Southwest plane developing a hole in its fuselage.
  •  Republicans and Democrats are fighting a budget battle obdurately which might yet lead to a government shutdown.
  • And of course many Republicans continue to test the waters before they finally, finally jump into the fray to be the candidate for President in 2012. Obama will win of course. So, relax.
  • Oh, Elizabeth Taylor died a few days back. No,  really. Today is April 02, 2011.
  • And finally, India's population has been tallied at 1.2 billion. That merits a blog post all its own.
  • Oh, India's tiger numbers have increased too.

Well, it seems the Government of India is up to its usual censoring ways ... It's not as bad as what the Chinese are doing in battling Google. The Internet is awash in pornography and the feeble attempts of the Govt. of India won't be able to stem the tide. The Govt. should merely restrict itself to ensuring that there's no child pornography or trafficking of humans. There are problems galore for the Govt. to worry about as it is ...

Currency Stories: India and China

I am skeptical about all the song and dance about the falling rupee. Is India's economy on a fundamentally different trajectory than China's? What is the direction that the experts are hoping India's economy should take? What is going to be the path of India's development? The weak rupee probably makes it costlier to go on those frequent trips to Davos -- at least for the private sector who have to pay for their trips themselves. In all this tsunami of talk about the collapse of the rupee, we seem to have all forgotten about the China story which otherwise somewhere seems to be there almost as an alter ego.
