India exports more cars than China

China exports lot, no? Now, eat this:

As per as Businessweek, India is now ahead of China in automobile exports, but at the same time, Indian market itself is much smaller.
(Exports till Sep'09: India: 292k cars, China: 221k cars, also India is growing while China is shrinking)

Have a look at the domestic market:
India: 2 million cars
China: 10 million cars

So, in a nutshell, India has low demand and relies on exports , while in China, all cars produced are gobbled up by the huge Chinese domestic market and no one gives a damn about export.

Sachin Tendulkar is a man.

Tendulkar sent off a strong message of nationhood by saying that he is a proud Maharashtrian, but that he plays for India. Chak de!

Ronald Emmerich destroys Earth again

This guy called Ronald Emmerich loves to do one thing: Destroy the planet. He has done this with real heavy CGI in 2012.

If you didn't get what I just said, you are one of those who watch hollywood action flicks in hindia and have no dumb idea about who acts or makes the movie. Since I am sure you are one of them, let me introduce this Ronald to you. He produced 2012 (which will be released on 13 Nov), and has made other movies like 'The Day After Tomorrow', 'Godzilla', '30,000BC' and 'Indepemdence Day'
As you can see, Independence Day and TDAT were about Earth going kapuk and so is 2012. I have read a few reviews and they say this new movie has loads of CGI (computer generated effects, or 'special effects') and action, and a hollow script. So, let's watch it for the CGI!

Delhi Metro Fare Hike

To all Delhities who are unhappy with Metro fare hike: What do you really expect? Do you expect your metro to charge the same it did 5 years ago? (Yes, this hike comes after 5 years gap). Do you realise that fuel prices have inncreased in 5 years? Do you realise salaries increased in 5 years? Are you people so damn immature to be unhappy of something that is very normal? What the hell do you fucking retards expect?

The two big news of the day, unfortunately

News 1: MLA slapped for taking oath in hindi.
As if, oath was not already a big farce, these people are taking it to a different level. And yes, if no one can speak hindi in Maharashtra, get bollywood movies in marathi too.

News 2: Muslims defy fatwaa and sing vande mataram
It is good. But then the very need of this news is pseudo-religious-politically-motivated-nonsense that some muslim leader made few days back. P. Chidambram was present at the meeting where this fatwaa was issued, what a home minister!

Realistic Expectations

Manmohan Singh says he expects a 6.5% growth this fiscal in the GDP. It is good as it is achievable and not over-the-top. It is also rare to see these guys not making tall promises, but then it is no election time either.
