Wikileaks blows the whistle on Congress

In yet another set back to the ruling Congress party, insult came calling from WikiLeaks as well. A new set of revelations from the whistle blower website has said that former US Ambassador to India David Mulford said that Congress will stoop to playing caste/religious-based politics in its own interest.

The response came soon after the then Minority Affairs Minister AR Antulay said that the death of ATS Chief Hemant Karkare may not have been due to the 26/11 attacks. But might be due to his probe into the Malegaon blast contrary to widely believed among the public. Karkare was responsible for the arrest of the accused Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Indian Army officer, Lt. Col. Shrikant Prasad Purohit, who were part of Hindu extremist groups.

Mulford says in the leaked diplomatic cables, “The Congress Party, after first distancing itself from the comments (of Antulay, the then minority affairs minister), two days later issued a contradictory statement which implicitly endorsed the conspiracy. During this time, Antulay's completely unsubstantiated claims gained support in Indian-Muslim community". Mulford had written this in the secret cable to the State Department on December 23, 2008.

"Hoping to foster that support for upcoming national elections, the Congress Party cynically pulled back from its original dismissal and lent credence to the conspiracy. The entire episode demonstrates that the Congress Party will readily stoop to the old caste/religious-based politics if it feels it is in its interest," he added.

Dogs Are Santa's Favorites


An AP-Petside.com Poll, conducted October 13-20, 2010, by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications, found that 53 percent of pet owners plan to get their animals a present this holiday season. Of these, fifty-six percent of the dog owners say they'll buy their pets a gift this Christmas, but only 48 percent of the cat owners plan a gift.

Also interesting: women (56 percent) are somewhat more likely than men (49 percent) to buy their animals a gift. The poll also showed that renters (66 percent) are more apt to pamper their pets than homeowners (49 percent). And while fewer than half of those who attend religious services weekly or more often say they plan to buy their pets a gift, 60 percent of those who never attend services do.

And while we're talking about Christmas gifts for pets, don't forget to get yours, at i-pets.com.

Escaped Reindeer Found Hiding Under Elf House

LAKELAND, Fla. -- A reindeer escaped from a nativity scene in Lakeland, but was later caught hiding under an elf house, police said Tuesday.

While the story sounds like a Christmas tale, police say it's true. A caller to police early Tuesday morning said the reindeer had escaped from the nativity scene at Highland Park Church of the Nazarene on Lake Highlands Road.

Church personnel responded to the area where the reindeer, appropriately named Rudy (short for Rudolph, of course), was seen running loose. They chased the deer around the property before finding Rudy hiding under the "elf house," police said.

Rudy, who was unharmed, is now in the care of his owner and being kept at his house to prevent another escape from his enclosure on the church property. Police said Rudy is small in stature and, while he looks like a baby deer, he is actually 3 years old.

Did Animals Make Humans Human?

A well-researched article in boston.com examines anthropologist Pat Shipman's premise that the unique ability to observe and control the behavior of other animals is what allowed us to become the humans that we are.

While some of Shipman's colleagues are skeptical, others describe her work as a promising new framework for looking at human evolution, one that highlights the extent to which the human story has been a collection of interspecies collaborations — between humans and dogs and horses, goats and cats and cows, and even microbes.

How much?

LONDON -- Sotheby's is auctioning a rare copy of John James Audubon's "Birds of America," billed as the world's most expensive book - a treasure that could sell for 6 million pounds ($9.5 million).

One of only 100 or so remaining copies of "Birds of America," the tome will be on the block Tuesday in London alongside a first edition of Shakespeare's plays expected to fetch at least 1 million pounds ($1.6 million).

The books come from the estate of the 2nd Baron Hesketh, an aristocratic book collector who died in 1955. Another complete copy of "Birds of America" was sold by Christie's for $8.8 million in 2000, a record for a printed book at auction.

The collection of 435 hand-colored prints is made from engravings of Audubon's illustrations.

Varanasi: Bomb blast in temple injures 25

A severe bomb blast outside a temple during the Ganga Aarti ceremony has injured more than 25 people in Uttar Pradesh.

The bomb blast outside the temple in Shitlaghat in Varanasi was happened around 6.00 pm. Media reported that many people were injured and they were taken to district hospitals.

Police officials rushed to the site and evacuated the entire area. Police officials told that they suspect some more bombs around the area. Police has announced red alert in Varanasi.

Police officials also said that atleast five foreigners were injured in the blast. Police added the possibility of the terrorist attack.

All the time our PM Manmohan ji says we are tightening the security and where is it???? is it really tightened? when willl they do? after all we people dead?

Shame on this govt. Indian Muzahidin said claimed the responsibility for the blast. Wake up govt. wake up ... at least now take some strong actions. We need action rather than the words. It had passed 2 years after 26/11 still we keeping Kasab in our jails and feeding him with biryani's and treating him as a guest. Is it necessary? Bring that ass hole out of the jail surrender him to Mumbai people and they will show what should be the better punishment.

We have a shameless govt. which is full of morons who only concentrates on power and money. They don't care about the security of the nation.  Manmohan is a useless PM we ever had who dances on the finger tip of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi. Shit ... I know I can do nothing than shouting in my blog or on FB ....

Finally RIP to those who died in the blast ... REST IN PEACE ...
