Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and political correctness in the United States - what a shitty society America has become

It makes me laugh that saying Merry Christmas in USA of today makes some/many people offended, and that saying Happy Holidays is somehow acceptable. What an intolerant dustbin America of today has become. Companies such as Google - no matter how hard they pretend to be ethical, moral and a defender of rights - properly succumb to this political correctness fever every year. Thankfully, Bing rightly celebrates Christmas. Sometimes that is.

You can always, always see it on their faces!

Whenever a beauty pageant winner - be it Miss World or Miss Universe - completes one year of her reign and the fateful time comes to hand over the signature crown to the next chosen girl, you can always see a strange feeling of sadness mixed with visible jealousy in her eyes. On the stage, she pretends to be smiling, but inside her she isn't - and it can be seen on her face and in her gestures. And this is despite the fact that she had herself decrowned some other girl just a year back, and she always knew that the crown won't be with her forever.

Salman Khan's acquittal reminds me of scenes from Jolly LLB #SalmanVerdict

The photo below of a newspaper story almost clearly shows that the Bombay High Court judge probably knowingly gave a pro-Salman judgment [out of either bribery or Modi government pressure or dire threats or all three], despite strong evidence proving Salman's culpability in the crime. Reminded me of several scenes from Jolly LLB.

If a corrupt judge wants to free a murderer in front of well over a billion people's eyes, he can just quietly write that the evidence isn't evidence after all. Brilliant!

I like FIAT and Fiat Linea

I've liked both Fiat and Linea for a long time now. I especially like Fiat's diesel engine that powers both Swift and Swift Dzire. I think the Linea is a good car, and it would've done better in the Indian market if not for the not-so-nice image that Fiat has here.
