    Are We (Indians) Racists ?

    Are Indians racist? No. A lot of Indians may be xenophobic, but the prevalence is no more than it is in other parts of the world. Bring up a SINGLE country in the world where you think there is no racism. We are just more open about it, since there aren't 938493 laws in India to keep our...

    Is height important?

    You can't get around to justifying, since most girls would not blame height for rejecting a man. Rather, they'd claim "he is not my type" and whip up a 'personality defect' to reject a guy, so that they can justify themselves that they are not as shallow as men are.   The research was...

    Copying owned-DVDs illegal - US Court Ruling

    Fortunately, most of us don't live in United States and hence, don't come under the purview of this court ruling.

    “We will plant Pakistan’s flag on Delhi’s Red Fort”

    The same reason why educated Hindus don't do anything about the mass massacre of Christians in Orissa and Karnataka, or Muslims in Gujarat. Most people in any community are helpless against the extremists.

    air india express crashes in mangalore

    It is sad tragedy indeed, but let us not over-react. Airlines in India are still amonst the safest in the world, with a fatality of less than 100 in ten years. Tyre bursts and overshooting the runway can happen anywhere in the world, even the safest of airports and airlines.

    Piracy and anti piracy in India

    Exactly. Digital piracy is simply a breach of an agreement. One has to be really brainwashed to think it is stealing, in the real sense, no one actually gets robbed.   To curb piracy in India, corporates will need police and court system as a backbone, which is esentially hogging up an...

    Piracy and anti piracy in India

    I find the whole hype and hoopla about piracy quite distasteful. India is a country where people are still stuggling to survive on a day-to-day basis. It is a country where we don't have enough legal resources to fight real crimes - like rape, murder, robbery and the like. And then we have...

    Rapidshare problem

    Open command prompt and run ipconfig/flushdns ipconfig/release ipconfig/renew that order. Also try using opendns as a user suggested above. It will probably work.

    Problem with my cousin(Girl)

    Leave her alone and let her play what she wants. It would have been something of a concern if she was a 13 year old, but not so much for a 17 year old.

    China vs India

    I don't think you'd be able to get your point across, especially since we Indians are a nation of easily gullible people. The majority of Indians are still quite willing to suck up to the US and gobble up media myths against China. Few, if any, are willing to read back up on history to verify...

    China vs India

    Looks like you didn't get my point. What difference would it have made if the Northeast was a part of China rather than India? A little better perhaps, economically and politically. The situation in Tibet even now is a lot better than it is in AFSPA North-Eastern India. ..because we are a...

    China vs India

    Two F-117s actually, not one. All in a span of a week, against a single opponent, who by no means is a military might. If you consider that a proof of the F-117s 'invincibility' then I could say the same for IAF's Su-30 MKIs and Mirage-2000s. The Mirage-2000 has been operational for 2...

    China vs India

    Subjective. The fact that the Kargil war dragged on for so long and we lost so many of our jawans makes me ponder whether to believe this one...(much as I wish I could). Sukhoi Su-30s are Russian aircrafts. The Indian versions have Israeli equipments in them. And I wouldn't call an Su the...

    Isnt Guwahati in India?

    I agree. It is about the only channel that still retains it professionalism. It is like fresh mango to the commercial 'mango drinks' that private news channels are.
