i used to wonder whether there are any easy and natural way to repel mosquitoes (apart from keeping your surroundings clean). here is an interesting article from ibnlive which tells that elephant dung can be used to repel mosquitoes effectively.

"Elephant dung is the cheapest mosquito repellent. And like herbal medicines, it has no side effects," says Maheshwar Rai, a cattle farmer who bought five kg for Rs.20.

Rai said that he would use the dung "to save my family and half a dozen cows from the mosquito menace, which becomes very bad in early winter".

as the great city of mumbai stands stabbed and bleeding by dastardly terrorists attacks, 2 articles caught the outrage. they are here and here.

disgrace of the cm - that's summaries the anger aptly. the entire mahastra machinery led by its impotent chief minister and careless home minister stands naked in this brazen assault on the maximum city.

Even CM Vilasrao Deshmukh was not spared: ‘‘Please, please use all the might of the media, if any, to ensure this disgrace of a CM is booted out by tomorrow.’’ The presence of filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma and other hanger-ons in Deshmukh’s entourage which visited the Taj hotel on Sunday has also come under severe criticism. ‘‘They have turned this tragedy into terror tourism,’’ said an onlooker. Pune-based sports shop owner Sundeep Grover is livid, describing Patil’s comment as ‘‘ridiculous’’.

and gaurav karla hits in the nail in his ibnlive blog as
Instead, it has them by the balls and is making them scream. Shobha De says enough is enough. Well Miss De enough; was enough long before the peace of South Mumbai as shattered. It was enough when bombs went off in hospitals in Ahmedabad, it was enough when in busy markets in Delhi, Diwali shopping turned into a gory dance of death.

this terror is new and it looks just a start. the terror planners were very clear on what they wanted. they had following key objectives.

1. hold the maximum city to ransom for several days.
2. put india to shame.
3. terrorise locals.
4. hit the vital (and elite) section of mumbai so that nobody feels safe.
5. target innocent americans, britons and israelis, so that these vital population feels unsecure about india and hence hitting mumbai's business and india's confidence.

as the impotent indian politicians whimper and whine on the attacks, the terror sponsors will be gleefully celebrating this masscare and getting ready for more.

and in india they practise today what they might be implmenting in other parts of the world tomorrow. as far as indian politicians are concerned, they were impotent before terrorists stuck, will be impotent during the terror attacks and will be impotent after these attacks. sorry to say this, "this is india, where nothing matters. not even a massive terror attacks".

as we all recoile from the dastardly attacks in the maximum city of mumbai, one cannot but help to wonder how many times we have taken the 'chalta hai' attitude.

chalta hai when it comes to repeated bomb blasts
chalta hai when it comes to absolute zero security plans
chalta hai when a main govt minister delivered notorious dangerous terrorists after a hijack attempt
chalta hai when hundreds of crores is being spent on black cat cover for even the grandson of the congress president but zero protectino of our borders.
chalta hai when it comes to the lies of politicians

the terror head of departments across the border should be laughing at our chalta hai attitude and of course planning the next attack.

so in this tragedy here is what the politicians will be thinking as they believe strongly in our chalta hai attitude.

chief minister vilasrao deshmukh: damn, these terrorists will depress the real estate price of mumbai. damn it. i have invested so much efforts into converting police into brokers for me, my family and friends and damn it, these terrorists have reduced the value of real estate in mumbai which is already under pressure due to the stupid bankers of america. damn it. c'mon mumabi. let it go. let's revive the spirit of mumbai. huh? i already took ram gopal vermaji and my actor son for a tour to the devastated place and as my home minister said these small things happen-ji. so let's revive the same spirit of mumbaikars and get back to work huh?

prime minister oxfordian clueless singh: well, in oxford we call this as economic theory of disturbance. sometimes when external events like this happens, well, there will be a small disturbance. but india will be strong enough to raise as the next financial tiger. i am going to send our home minister who has so far presided of around 10 terrorists attacks and has resolutely faced every one of those.

young non-dashing invisible son rahulji: i would like to stand by my elders, prime minister cluelessji, home minister repeated terrorist attack withstander patilji are all doing a great job. we have faced several attacks and will face several further but let me tell you our government will not be bowed by these kind of silly acts!!!

shiv sena riot thackery: damn it, let's invade every country in our neighborhood. it is a pity that mumbai ruled by north indians, have no clue. damn it, we got to raid every country in the world for this. let us call georige porgie bushie asap and take action. now which country do we attack? meanwhile let me attack mumbai with another round of riots so that i can give an all clear.

seriously guys, if this was america, these guys will never ever be in power again for their life. the home minister is simply a DISASTER, the prime minster a CLUELESS WONDER and the maharastra government a walking dead body.

mumbai is a goner. a city only can take so much. but mumbai has been taking a lot of shit. its police has been communalised, criminalized, abused, ineffective and useless and mainly have become brokers for clinching real estate, settling politicial scores, keeping tab on opposition politicians, etc

it is no surprise mumbai is getting hit like this. if it is chennai or hyderabad, the people will react with extreme anger against politicians and hence politicians are atleast teeny tiny bit careful in letting police do basic jobs. in mumbai police have become jokers and have been made useless for anything.

and next time, it wont be small. all our vital installations like airports, aircraft bases, nuclear power plants all are vulnerable as the security in these places are surely thin.

god alone can save mumbai and india from these useless politicians and ruthless terrorists.
