The World This Week

Here’s my take on some of the news events that happened over the last week.

  • News report: Britney Spears Divorces Kevin Federline. Oops she did it again!

  • News report: Fed-ex(that’s what the news media is calling Kev Fed) isint going to get anything from Britney’s estate – thanks to an iron-clad pre-nuptial agreement the 2 signed.
    Britney, you’re not that innocent!

  • News report: Democrats gain control of the US Senate. Indian diplomats worried.
    Well they ought to be. They’ve wasted 50 years cozying up to the USSR. Manmohan Singh government decided they couldn’t not-be-friends with the US and so started cozying up to the Republican government. Looks like they’ve gotten themselves a white Republican elephant!

  • News report: Umrao Jaan hits Indian screens. Damp squib results.
    Is Umrao mein koi jaan nahin (This Umrao has no life in it)

  • News report: Saddam Hussein sentenced to death.
    Saw that one coming. But at least he was tried.

  • News report: A new Bond movie set to hit the screens. When asked how he would like his martini, this Bond snaps ‘Do I look like I give a damn?’
    Critics both shaken and stirred.

  • News report: Cell phone usage may affect male fertility.
    News report: India adds a record 6.6 million subscribers in October alone.
    Looks like the Indian government is using new technology to reduce its 1bn population.

  • News report: Aussie players push Sharad Pawar off-stage after accepting the Champions Trophy. Ricky Ponting “Hey Buddy’ –ies Pawar.
    Seriously I am soooo miffed at this juvenile behaviour – I cant think of anything funny. To his credit Ponting later apologized and Pawar accepted the apology.

  • News report: Abu Salem to stand for elections.
    (Once a Dawood henchman – Dawood being India’s most notorious underworld don – Salem was deported from Portugal – after protracted legal wranglings)
    This can happen only in India.

  • News report: There’s trouble in Gaza again. Israeli forces open fire and kill 50 civilians.
    There’s never going to be peace – where there are 2 nations fighting over a piece of land.
