McDowell Signature Indian Derby 2010 – Unparelled Glamour and Jaw-Dropping Rendition …

Posted by Deepak Shetty

I witnessed the Richest Individual Sporting Event in India with an over Rs 2 crore prize purse. The event was on 6th and 7th of Feb’10, at Mahalaxmi racecourse.

I was all the most excited cos’ I had never been to a derby all my life, being from a middle class family , I thought these things were a class apart. However, it was not too late to change my perception. Fortunately, I got an invite from one of my colleagues and witnessed the most wonderful, classy, bold, powerful and the most stylish event. It was rocking!

The custom-designed 16000 sq ft air-conditioned hanger hosted all the performances and entertainment acts 2010, including carnival bazaar, flea market, Spiritz & More, etc. The crowd was cheering the racers, the racers were speeding up for a win, the glitters and glamour of the well choreographed Fashion show was top of the world. Glen Jackson indeed revived memories of the great showman Michael Jackson, and internationally-acclaimed vocalist ‘Kaiya’s’ tribute to Tina Turner lit up the show.

The electrifying confluence of sport, fashion, fun unparallel glamour, high-energy excitement and jaw-dropping rendition was truly a feel good experience

Friends’ I must say it was a definitely world class bold and stylish event celebrated by McDowell Signature Indian Derby ‘2010.

Big Bazaar is very poor in customer service and matured in false commitment

Posted in Mumbai with tags , , , , , on January 12, 2009 by xpressindiaon

“Kishor Biyani …Hai Hai…Kishore Biyani Chor Hai….Kishore Biyani Murdabad”…….and on n ‘ on the crowd went…!
Who is Kishore Biyani ?
Kishore Biyani is the Managing Director of Pantaloon Retail (India) Limited and the Group Chief Executive Officer of Future Group.
Some one has also said- “Chandrashekhar (India)
22 days ago ( 2008-12-20 21:36:59 )
Mr. Kishor Biyani – BAD & UNETHICAL BUSINESSMAN
Let us add another award in profile of Mr. Kishor Biyani – BAD & UNETHICAL BUSINESSMAN FOR YEAR 2008. Also, change name of BIG BAZAAR to CHOR BAZAAR (as they are engaed in cheating, looting and fooling customers).”

Let’s continue with the ” hai..hai ” This is what I saw and heard yesterday in Kandivili (E) Big Bazaar, The customers were going mad at the customer service counter, people where promised gift , worth purchase of more then 1500/- and even more….the gifts were given according to the stickers the customer had collected, people had spent more than Rs. 6000/- to Rs.20,000/- , and were given 2 plastic bottles worth Rs. 5 and Rs. 10?- as gifts.

Ha..Ha..:)  How will you think the poor customers will react ? All have earned so many stickers spending their hard earned money to get gifts like plastic bottles , when they were promised oven , glassware, and many more…
People were angry and yelling at the customer service officer at the counter , suddenly a customer service lady interrupted the crowd with gr8′ attitude , yelling back at the crowd, telling them they can change the policies whenever they wish to, so the customer’s shud quietly take the plastic bottles and go ….literally she meant “Fuck Off” (apologies for the language) but that’s what she meant.
She just forget that the customers were abusing the services and not her , and she is there to resolve the problem and give a solution , and not throw attitude , somebody please tell her to quit , let a deserving candidate apply for the post, who can at least speak to the customers calmly and listen to them patiently…she was hiding her  identity card so that she shud not b identified by her name…how unprofessional , isn’t it?

Coming back to the plastic bottles, Oops! Gifts! Being Sunday , the place was crowded , one of the angry customer , went and decided to shut the cash counters and did so, then the main officer in charge of the place had to come down and request not to do so…
He was calling up the MNS Members to come and punish the staff members, but other customers consoled him and said, we will fight for our rights and find our way out, each customer standing there said , that they want a  written and stamped proof ,that their gifts will be home delivered , and they will get whatever is promised, the customer service guys easily and quickly agreed .

But, I could see a twinkle in their eyes, they were relaxed that they are Scot free , they knew the customers will no more yell, go home and they will never send the gifts…their cunning smile said it all.

Poor customers ..every time,they are the target , they are called “AAM AADMI” (Common People)…but excuse me!…we are not common , customers in books are the king, but these biggies will never treat them so…customers are treated as scapegoats and idiots, businessmen  like Kishor Biyania, politicians , terrorists… when will we raise our voice against all this corruption , Yes !!! one day.. and that is Sunday , we are angry and happy only on this day, The fight on Sunday is forgotten till the next weekend, It sounds funny but it is the fact and truth of evry commen man , cos’ all are busy in their life, if one day a common man , as we are called doesn’t earn , his/her whole month schedule is disturbed….

I want all common men to know, that they are special, please fight for your rights, please don’t let anyone take you for granted, We are all not influential , nobody is scared of us individually, but we can influence each other, together we can move mountains, join your hands for a corruption free country. I’m sure “No corruption will make India safe”

Regards,

Common Man

P.S:  Please comment and suggest  , if you are commen but Special! Let’s get united and defeat corruption !!

Why Raj Thackeray is wrong-and right

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 11, 2008 by xpressindiaon

There’s is something about the nomenclatural identity of India’s 28 states. All, except one, have names with either regional (Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Nagaland) or geographical (Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh) significance. Maharashtra, which means ‘Greater Nation’, is an exception; its self-identification is national.
It is, therefore, distressing that certain local political formations in Maharashtra succumb to the temptation of parochialism every once in a while by projecting non-existent antagonism between ‘natives’ and ‘outsiders’. Invariably, it is Mumbai, India’s first and still the most cosmopolitan city, which bears the brunt of their insularity. In the 1960s, their target was Dakshin Bharatiyas (South Indians). Now, resentment is sought to be whipped up against Uttar Bharatiyas (North Indians).
The notion that any city or part of India belongs only to its ‘natives’ is unconstitutional, repugnant and injurious to the ideal of national unity and integration. From time immemorial, our people have freely moved from one part of the country to another, believing all of India to be their own. As far as Mumbai is concerned, although it is the capital of Maharashtra, people from every corner of the country have migrated to this city of dreams and opportunities since its inception. Mumbai is what it is today because of the contribution of diverse communities inhabiting it. In particular, the two sources of its national and international profile — business and Bollywood — would be unthinkable without a grateful recognition of the role of non-Marathi speaking communities. It would be a great misfortune if Mumbai degenerated into a provincial capital.
Therefore, Raj Thackeray, whose Maharashtra Navanirman Sena has made impressive strides in a short time after breaking away from the Shiv Sena, has done no good either to Maharashtra’s proud reputation, or to himself, by making ill-advised remarks about North Indians in Mumbai or about a national icon like Amitabh Bachchan. He has a promising political future. He would, therefore, do well to win the support of the city’s considerable population of North Indians in his inclusive political strategy, without being apologetic about espousing legitimate Marathi pride.
While one must condemn anything that weakens our unifying Indian identity, it would be hypocritical to turn a blind eye to certain harsh social and political realities of Mumbai. With 1.9 crore residents in the Mumbai Metropolitan Area, which includes Navi Mumbai and Thane, its population has rapidly grown to become greater than the combined population of nine Indian states. Its once-famed infrastructure is highly overstretched, lowering the quality of life for rich and poor alike. It once had the best municipal governance in India; not any more. Fifty-four per cent of its residents live in slums, most of which are so unbelievably congested and squalid that it is criminal on the part of any government to let people live in such inhuman conditions. It is well known to authorities that tens of thousands of Bangladeshis, many with voting rights, are living in Mumbai. Some 20,000 houses in the older part of the city are in a dangerously dilapidated state, the reason why every monsoon one reads about people dying in incidents of house collapse.
Mumbai is decaying. But few politicians in the city, state or country are taking a serious and comprehensive view of its chronic condition, and fewer still are willing to take the tough decisions to set things right. By tough decisions, one does not mean banning ‘outsiders’ — north Indians or Indians from any other part of India — from settling in Mumbai. That certainly is wrong. But is it wrong to hold that encroachments should be stopped, that people must not be allowed to occupy pavements and places earmarked for public utilities, or that the cut-off years for regularisation of slums must be strictly adhered to?
Indeed, some political parties have developed a vested interest in allowing unauthorised settlements to proliferate for vote-bank considerations. When illegal settlements along the lethally polluted Mithi river were sought to be cleared after the July 2005 deluge in Mumbai, which claimed nearly 500 lives, it was stoutly resisted by local politicians who felt threatened that their voter-base would shrink. Mumbaikars know of hundreds of such examples of duplicity and political muscle-flexing.
The question that Raj Thackeray and many people in Mumbai are asking is: How can slum redevelopment and rehabilitation ever succeed if there is political patronage for the creation of new slums? How can Mumbai ever see orderly urban development, with world-class infrastructure and civic amenities for all its residents, if there is deliberate and corruption-induced disorder in the use of its most scarce resource — land? Indeed, which Indian city can grow well if short-term and partisan political interests undermine a long-term and integral vision of urban renewal?
Hence, some of Raj Thackeray’s concerns are right, but he has voiced them wrongly.

MUMBAI: Terror struck the country’s financial capital late on Wednesday night as coordinate serial explosions and indiscriminate firing rocked eight areas across Mumbai including the crowded CST railway station, two five star hotels–Oberoi and Taj– leaving 16 persons dead and 50 injured.

Armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades, a couple of terrorists entered the passenger hall of CST and opened fire and threw grenades, Mumbai General Railway Police Commissioner A K Sharma said.

The terror strike which began at 10:33 PM at Chhatrapathi Shivaji Terminus(CST) , formerly known as the Victoria Terminus(VT) , claimed 10 lives in the premises of the station alone, police said.

Three persons were killed in a bomb explosion in a taxi on Mazegaon dockyard road and an equal number were gunned down at Taj Hotel. The victims in the hotel were its employees.

The lobby of the Oberoi hotel was on fire and the hotel evacuated, eyewitnesses said.

Maharashtra DGP A N Roy said tonight’s attack in “at least seven places” is a “terror strike.”

Sharma said 30 persons were injured in the CST incident. Commandoes were rushed to the CST which wore a deserted look and train services suspended.

Some people were injured in the firing in Oberoi hotel, and taken to a nearby hospital in police vans and ambulance. Firing was also reported in Taj hotel.

Firing was reported at Colaba, Nariman Point and near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal, formerly Victoria Terminus and it was still continuing.

Firing was also reported at Cama Hospital in south Mumbai, police said, adding that a blast was reported in a taxi under a flyover in suburban Vile Parle. A bomb went off in a taxi in Mazegaon dockyard road.

SRPF personnel then entered the iconic BMC building — just opposite CST — to take aim at the assailants, BMC commissioner Jairaj Phatak said. “We fear some of the assailants are still inside the station and we want to catch them if they come out,” a police official said.

Vikhroli police station senior inspector Habib Ansari was on his way to work from his Colaba home when he saw two armed men, with sophisticated weaponry, trying to run into bylanes near the Gateway of India.

“I rushed back to Colaba and all policemen, including GRP and RPF personnel, were called up,” he added.

Bhisham Mansukhani, a journalist, was attending a wedding reception at the Taj’s Crystal Room. “I was inside the bar when glass shards almost hit my eye,” he said. “More than 200 people were escorted inside Chambers, a business centre inside the hotel,” he added.
