Somethings never change..

August 18th, 2009

After a long long break, I was browsing Deccan Chronicle on the web and had a deep sigh “somethings never change”. It was more or less a crappy news paper which it had been during my days in Hyderabad and God forbid, its still maintaining the same status-quo.

Although it covers some national and international news, its primarily a local English language News Paper and what I see in its Entertainment section headlines are…

  1. Jessica Simpson’s lawyers issue legal warning…
  2. Britney Spears dumped!
  3. Naomi Campbell, is a fan of..

Common now, this is more than international tabloid. Hyderabad edition is boasting news on Jessica and Britney, who cares?

But………..but, this news definitely made me laugh, quote

On whose side is Varuna? MLAs fight

While the ruling party claimed that the Rain God was on their side, the Opposition said Lord Varuna ran away from the state because of the Congress corruption.
The Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, had said on Sunday that the Rain God had fled to China fearing that the Mahakutami would come to power. When Lord Varuna realised that Kutami did not win, he returned and opened up the skies, he said. Dr Reddy’s comments echoed in the Assembly too.
The CPM leader, Mr Julakanti Ranga Reddy, said the Congress government should apologise to Lord Varuna for claiming that he belonged to the Congress.
The finance minister, Mr K. Rosaiah, was quick to react. He said he was happy that the Communist leader believed in God. “Whatever they say, Lord Varuna is on our side,” Mr Rosaiah said.
When the finance minister said the Left parties have to always tag to one party or the other to come to power, Mr Ranga Reddy retorted saying they always fought for people’s rights.
The Telugu Desam deputy floor leader, Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy, objected to Dr Reddy’s comments saying the Rain God ran away due to corruption in the Congress government.

I don’t know when these guys grow up. shameless politicians.
