    I am glad you have a sense of humor about this saar.

    The problem is Adjust madi, madi, madi – we laugh our faults away. Instead of striving to be the best of the best (People *still* talk about the opening ceremony of the Beijing games) we have to deal with loser/idiots like Kalmadi while we become the laughing stock of the world.

    Adjust madtha iri saar. Well done. well done.

    Hey, you forgot to provide L.K. Advani and BJP/RSS as an option to all the questions.

    Don’t you know that it is mandatory to be critical of the BJP for every problem in the country? You seem to losing touch.

    Cot broke in CWG village!
    Selja said whoever is found guilty for the broken cot, after the inquiry is complete will be punished. Official sources said the material was imported from China and it was assembled in India before it was brought to the Games Village. Poor Delhi carpenter the first scape goat. I was wondering why not we ask the Chinese government for the poor quality of the COT!
