I am really pissed off!
Should I sack Laloo for the railway mishap killing 150 or should I sack Shivraj V Patil for his inability in stopping the terrorist attack? I am really pissed off! What a dilemma! Knowing myself, I know I will do neither.
But I am really pissed off! Which is worst of the two? I am really pissed off!
Some positive news from Pakistan. We can send relief across the border and I hope both nations rejoice . I am really pissed off! Also we have pledged US $ 25 Million to Pakistan. I am really pissed off!
I think I should sack Laloo first. I am really pissed off! But if I sack Laloo, Soniji will be pissed off. Better I stay pissed off!

I am really pissed off! Very angry. Very Very angry about these blasts in Delhi. I even threw my Economic Times and Business Standard across the room...and picked up the Jane’s defense weekly
This Diwali will be remembered…well remembered by Lashkar-e-Toiba. I am really pissed off!

I think made a mistake by sending Natwar to Russia. Have a look at this KGB photograph of Natwar with Iran’s Deputy President Parviz Davoodi published on rediff.com.
Immediately after this they participated in the best scowl by a visiting foreign dignitary contest held on Russian Television. Russian press is quite free. They rank 139 on the freedom of press ranking, 33 notches below India. They must have shot the photographer before confiscating the photograph for rediff.com!
Italy ranks 42 and this statement has no connection whatsoever with Soniaji!
India's freedom of press ranking ascertained by press reporter sans frontier is 106. Have they met Rajat Sharma of India TV? My press secretary was scared to death while informing this to me. Pakistan is ranked at 150; their press secretary will be hanged tomorrow. China's ranking is at 159; they will hang their dead press secretary again.

I called up a lot of people in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala during the floods. All spoke Bhojpuri with me. I was quite surprised. I suppose the locals were helping out in the floods.
I chatted with the representatives of ULFA. First, I thought they were some trade unionist from Kolkatta but then I saw the empty holster and guessed. I told them I am willing to discuss anything with them while keeping an eye on the empty holsters. They left after 15 minutes. The holsters were empty.
Some of my friends really think it is me blogging here. Amazing!

Sri Lanka loosing the match reminds me of the head of Mumbai bar owners association, Manjeet Singh. He is the only Singh who is not the Singh like a Singh should be. Almost a Buta Singh!
Mr. K. J. Rao, the special advisor to the Election Commission (EC) in Bihar finds the elections here more challenging than in Kashmir…while the challenge in both places is mainly to stay alive, in Kashmir you can actually hold an election.
Soniaji wants to discuss the Kashmir CM issue with me. Does she need a scapegoat? She could try Laloo he is such a goat!
I have asked the armed forces commanders to refashion defense strategy. Irrespective of your expectation I will not mention that Ritu Berry called me with this proposal. I do not crack such obvious jokes. I am an intelligent, liberal, economist Sardarji.
Supreme Court has suggested throwing Bihar Governor Buta Singh out of his “allotted” house in Delhi, “Buta Singh is governor of Bihar. What is he doing here? How can he be occupying this house? The governor cannot have a house here. Throw him out” I think it will better for all if we throw him out of the Governors house in Bihar.

The entire Mumbai Police force is behaving like Delhiites. Molesting and rapping then getting caught by civilians. Getting caught by civilians is the point the entire nation should reflect on.

While on onions, we are opening up the LOC so that we can provide assistance to Kashmiris on the other side. Looks like onions will not be a part of this assistance.
H D Deve Gowda is a former PM and will soon be a former politician if he keeps attacking my favorite corporate citizen Narayana Murthy. I asked my political advisor if I can call Deve Gowda a fat non performing asset of Indian politics. I was advised not to do so for another 5 years. Actually, I do not know much about airports, but it is a mystery why so many top honchos are building one airport in Bangalore. Anyway, if Narayana wants to build something challenging he can try building absolutely anything in Bihar while Deve builds the airport.
What is L K Advani doing today? I have prayed so that I do not see him on TV today .

Too many betas, you become a blind Dhutrasta. (You need to be an Indian to understand this)
In case you have not figured this out...Google has too many products which are in the public domain still in beta stage which people use thinking they are regular products.
I and the president have a lot in common; we are patriotic, liberal, honest, ageing and have long hair!

Darn, that is a bad joke particularly from an intelligent and liberal Sardaji economist like me who is also a Prime Minister.
I enjoyed my meeting with Cisco Systems' CEO John Chambers today. He is really good at networking…he met quite a few bureaucrats and ministers. CISCO is definitely in the right business.
Mamta Banerjee’s protest in West Bengal failed due to a heavy downpour. She was protesting against some Indonesian CEO planning an investment in West Bengal. She could have elicited more response by protesting in Indonesia…investing in West Bengal! The CEO would have lost his job!
Now, this business about Govinda and Dawood. I will have to first check if Govinda is useful in any way to Soniaji and then give my reaction.

I am taking undue interest in sports. This is the only newspaper page left on my breakfast table. Political sections are read by my cook, page 3 by my wife and the rest is used for packing my lunch. Anyway, I found that Ganguly has been declared physically fit. He had a tennis elbow now he only suffers from cricket verbose!

Musharraf wants some of our helicopters to fly across borders…without pilots. He spoke through the media. He even wants free movement across the borders. I think my wife saw this part on TV. I think Mrs and Mr Musharraf can appear on KBC – Dutiya and win Rs 2 Cr. Lock kiya jai?
Anyways, while this was happening life in Bushland a.k.a USA went on normally as Adobe released an update to their acrobat reader. It downloaded suddenly using an auto update which reminded me of Microsoft and Jayalalitha. Bulky uncertain changes to fix old errors!

Quite a price to pay for all this. Quite a price indeed.

Happy Birthday Mr. President. 1 day behind schedule.
Thank you Rediff.com for mentioning this on your site. You are the oldest, fastest, famous and still easiest to remember portal since I started liberalization and Mikhail Gorbachev started Perestroika
If I resign who will become me? An interesting question which I will have to debate and which Soniaji will have to decide
Ganguly is out. Pranab Mukherjee protested in defense. Says it is his job as the Defense Minister. But maybe he did not say that. I really have to retain a full time Bengali English-English translator.
President Kalam thinks we should not send satellites any more. Google Earth will do a good job and it is free! But is it out of Beta? Is the Google CEO Eric Schmidt out of beta?
Drink less over the weekend. Save water. Also use less electricity. And use a little less petrol. And please, please, please spend more money. It is good for the economy!

Natwar is leaving for Russia on 26 Oct. Russians are important to us. They are like our left parties…democratic communists and partners in an uncertain alliance. Maybe we will buy a ship and a few guns from them.
Things are bad in Kashmir. Musharraf’s Pakistan should learn to hold its ground.
Daniel Craig is the new Bond, James Bond. He is likely to fight bikini clad human bombs in UK subways. This bond is also a blond.
In 2050 they will consider a Sardar Bond. 30% of the English speaking audience will be Indian! And all will have laptops!

Indo – Pak relationship dominate the minds of dying Kashmiris on both sides of the border. Their last wish is to have the spokesperson on both side shut up. Barkha Dutt of NDTV should also return home and try acting in any Balaji television serials.
I got a small surgery done today at AIMS. There was a rumor that the resident doctors were planning to strike for higher wages, sexier nurses and allowing each of them to see the prime minister naked. Amazing!
Ranbaxy lost to Pfizer in the Liptor patent suit. 70% of the news reporter and 99.99% of the Indian population do not know about this since Liptor is not a call center.

Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan turned 64. I did not call him. I am not afraid of Soniaji.
Uma is going to be the CM of Madhya Pradesh after Bihar election. We will call it Right “Madhya” Pradesh after that. I will be reading all their history text books from right to left. But, does Madhya Pradesh have any history? Arjun can help in this.

I am sad about all families who suffered.
I lectured all Chief Ministers on the need to improve the fiscal health of the state. Most Chief Ministers told me they had heard of Leptospirosis, Dengue and Typhoid problems in their state but the fiscal bug had still not hit them. One chap even wanted to know if there were special financial benefits if he declares his state fiscally hit. I am impressed with the fiscal intellect of the leaders.
What is the latest in Bihar? Haven’t found time to read the crime section of the Tribune…

Will I loose votes if Imam of Jamma Masjid issues a fatwa saying that Sania should wear a tennis burkha and I publicly renounce this? Have to check this with Ghulam Nabi Azad. He is an expert on this.
In India we do not have this problem. We do not make products. We will only provide services. So we provide support to Microsoft Office users in GE, USA, using application that uses google technology to search and index running on Linux servers with IBM logo connected to ISP which is on SUN systems. I am using Microsoft Word to type this. Thank you.
Though I do not have a stake in all this, since I am the Prime Minister of an IT infected country I have some opinion, particularly since this is a weekend and I have time to write.
I wonder if SEBI is investigating Chida (Chidambaram) His comments have too much impact on the NSE index. I need to de-Chidambify the index. I am also very happy that Ambani’s continue to stay out of news.
Sun-Google, Bush-Musharraf, Laloo-Bhuta, Congress – RJD, Congress – CPI, Russia – Iran…I mean what is wrong in having these type of alliance?
I hope some Indian wins a Noble or semi Noble prize. It will keep the media off this Bihar crises and our dismissal of the assembly.
I am thinking of declaring Bihar as an NPA. We will then declare it a bad debt and merge parts of it into different states.

Amazing is the dissimilarity between AMU, India and AMU, USA. AMU India stands for Alighar Muslim University and in USA it stands for American Military University.

Bush selected his Lawyer Miers as a candidate for US Supreme Court and Microsoft is expected to allow you to save office documents in pdf format using Office 12. (http://www.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=55816). I do not know how these events are connected but all sound so interesting.

Advaniji feels that there should be judicial probe into the allegations that many congress leaders were on KGB’s payroll in 1970 (http://in.rediff.com/news/2005/oct/02advani.htm) The Left feels that such a probe is irrelevant since congress is on the CIA payroll now (http://in.rediff.com/news/2005/oct/02cong.htm). I will have to see my salary slip this time and find out who am I working for. I always thought it was Soniaji. Does Italy have a secret service?

Had an interesting day yesterday! But I will call it ordinary since I am the PM! I met the Left leaders for breakfast and tried to reason out the Iran-IAEA vote till they left. Left to these guys there will be no right or left of India Left.
Sheikh Hasina dropped in (she is the PM of Bangladesh I later found out). She speaks like Paranb and I was deliberating whether I should call for an English-English interpreter. Dr. Condoleezza Rice had called for an English-English interpreter during her meeting with Pranab Mukherjee. Anyways, Hasina just dropped in to say hello and tell us not shoot across the borders.
Bush called up. I do not like taking his patronizing and bossy calls. Bush is so much like Microsoft!
He basically told me we will continue to scratch each others back. I pray that the itch on his back continues.
