Desi connection to American Idol 6

Very interesting Video on ancient Indian inventions. Some of the things did surprise me which existed in India.

I was aware of the number system and Zero. But it was amazing to see how old cities were build, plastic surgery and even cataract operations.

Just to lighten up the mood after India’s loss in World Cup, lets try some comedy. I came across this Stand up comedy clip which is so funny and still so true.

“Somebody is going to get hurt real bad.”

I had a similar interaction with a Chinese guy in local mall when I took my jacket to his store to get it dry cleaned but I was able to negotiate a deal with him. But still funny.

Well I came across this article about Worlds Dirtiest cities. And I was surprise to see that the only one Indian city features on this list and was more shocked to know it was Ranipet, Chennai.

Now you would ask why? Well this is so strange, I have visited this small town twice till now. This is native place of my wife and we got married right in this city.

I would like to see her reaction when she learns about this fact. Hmm. She has fond memories of this place. The fact that there are so many manufacturing companies around this area that I am not surprise that these companies are adding all toxic material and contaminating ground and water.

Ranipet, India

“Ranipet’s pollution can affect up to 3 million people, as it is upstream from populous Chennai. Its tannery waste amounted to 1,500,000 tons a year of toxic material. There is contamination of ground and water. There are efforts being made at containment.”
