Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat

The title of the book 'Revolution 2020' and Chetan Bhagat's positive coments about Anna Hazare movement makes one interested in reading the book but it's a complete disappointment as the book is more about melodramatic soap opera kinda stuff instead of offering a vision for India 2020.
If you are interested in triangular love story in which the lead character Gopal sacrifices his love at the end then this book is for you and you are left with the sympathetic feeling for Gopal.  How come it has anything to do with Revolution 2020 when the whole book revolves around an unfulfilled love story? Only few pages are dedicated to Revolution 2020 and even those pages talk about revolution to be brought by the youth (especially of Varanasi) against the corrupt system.

It's their job and they are surely free to do so but they are dissecting a flower to find it's beauty which is an impossibility. Beauty can only be experienced and it can't be logically proved.

They miss the essence of the movie which is all about a blessed artist (i like the short appearance of Shammi Kapoor who l…

Corrupt Practices by Delhi Tourism / Government

Update : Good to see that the commercial site isn't a partner in many Delhi government events anymore and it's an old story now. And i also got a reply sometime back that there was some kind of partnership agreement (which shouldn't happen though). Anyway, the chapter is closed for now and it's better to focus on other issues.

We all know about CWG scam, Telecom Ministry scam and many other scams including corruption in government departments which is faced by public very often.
I also want to point out one corrupt practice which i come across. I have noticed that Delhi Tourism is promoting one commercial website for the last few years. These government organizations are not even interested in providing information to DelhiEvents.com because that won't benefit them.

Why do government organizations promote a commercial venture? The reason is very simple : Personal gain or gain for the political party from corporates for the next election! That should be probed f…
