A Brilliant decision by the Bengal Governor but since I am not used to this level of thought by the bureaucracy I am beginning to wonder whether he took the name of his IPL team “(K)night Rider” a little too seriously.

The Hindu : Front Page : Kolkata Raj Bhavan opts for power cut

The Raj Bhavan observed voluntary power cuts for an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening here on Wednesday in view of a decision by Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi that it need not be an exception to the citys electricity supply situation.

The ardour of Deepavali has been dampened in the whole state by the events in Nandigram. Several villages in Nandigram are oscillating from the deepest gloom to panic.

While the developing world is still looking to cater to the basic needs so that people do not become non-existent, the world on the other side of the spectrum is catering to the exquisite needs of the non-existent. Founder Starts Social Networking Site for the Dead is scheduled for a soft launch in June. It aims to provide a central location to house online memorials for those who have passed on. It’s starting with $4.3 million in funding, with The Wall Street Journal as a lead investor.

Isn’t this amazing. You can build ghosthouse online. This has to be the best thing that ever happened to humankind since toasted bread.
