‘The Corrupt Indian’ A new global brand in the making?

And Dear Leader is Best Leader.

In sleepy North Korea, where ox carts outnumber cars, the ruling Kim family dashes from villa to villa in high speed convoys of black Mercedes-Benzes. In a poor country where a prized possession is a used Japanese bicycle, the Kim clan enjoy the most expensive imported toys – Jet Skis, motorcycles, karaoke machines, NBA-regulation basketball courts.
And in the late 1990s, when about two million North Koreans starved to death, their Dear Leader – as Kim Jong Il is known – sent his personal chef to Tokyo to buy fresh sushi, to Tehran to buy caviar, to Copenhagen for gourmet bacon and to Paris for the finest wines and cognacs.
This portrait of Kim and his family living a sheltered, pampered existence, a modern echo of ancient Korean royal dynasties, comes from a burly, chain-smoking Japanese sushi chef who until 2001 served as personal chef for the family. Writing under the name of Kenji Fujimoto, a pseudonym adopted for his safety, the chef, who is 56, came out last year with a memoir, “I Was Kim Jong Il’s Cook.”Published in Japanese and Korean, the book contained 70 photographs, including several of the author with Kim. Last summer, in a new book, “The Private Life of Kim Jong Il,” he focused on the dozen villas he had visited, including diagrams and photographs… {Read on}

The New Middle East?

Will the real Barack Obama please stand up?

If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I’m in the White House, I will put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I’ll will walk on that picket line with you as President of the United States of America. Because workers deserve to know that somebody is standing in their corner. ~ Barack Obama, 2007

New units of Indian Rupee

Government of India has decided that the new units of money measurement are needed.

Lacs & Crores no longer work ~ too many zero’s to handle; we have to reckon with Lac crores, etc.

As part of globalisation, one unit which works best is $Bn. Makes it easier for all to benchmark against their local systems but for India another simpler system also emerges

New Units of Money

The huge amounts mentioned in the recent scams have an upside: they have given us convenient new units for communicating large figures:

New Indian Currency Units 1000 Crores = 1 Radia (10000000000 )

10 Radia = 1 Kalmadi (10000 Crores=100000000000)

10 Kalmadi = 1 Raja (1 lac Crores=1000000000000)

100 Raja = 1 Sonia (100000000000000)

This will make it easier for us tocomprehend and communicate large numbers.

For example:

* Anil Ambani’s new home in Pali Hill will cost Rs 4.5 Radias.

* India’s total annual subsidy on kerosene is Rs 2 Kalmadis.

* ONGC’s annual output is worth Rs 1.2 Rajas.

* India’s loss in the 3G scam is approximately Rs 1.7 Rajas.

* Poor Pramod Mahajan left behind only Rs 1.4 Radias.

* Indian corrupted people money savings in Swiss Bank is more than Rs 1 Sonia.
