Reading Habit

Reading books is anyday a good hobby. One of the factors in favor of E-books is that paper is saved, but the cost of infrastructure to maintain the servers, the power to charge devices, the device itself, have these been taken into consideration.

Shoddy work

An electrical contractor had carried out shoddy work. He had not used proper insulation for wiring. What if things go wrong tomorrow?

A building owner is carrying out alterations without permission from Municipal authorities. He is issued a notice. He pays a bribe and the case is closed.
Would this scenario be different if the 'Permission' or 'Approval' could be obtained without hassles?

Food Security

It appears that in the Food Security Bill to be enacted in the Parliament, support will be provided to mothers for a duration of six months after delivery irrespective of the number of births. Will this not fuel a baby boom?

We had to get the sewerage line cleaned. There is a pressure jet/suction machine with the sewerage board. You talk to them 'personally', negotiate a price and get the job done. When I asked the driver what was the amount to be paid, he said "You know, the usual". I couldn't refuse. The only relief is that the line is cleaned and we need not suffer from the bad smell.
