Lalbaugcha Raja Auction


I spent last evening at the Lalbaugcha Raja auction.It was my first time.

I am pretty pleased with my “prasad”-a lovely silver modak that just comfortably overflows my cupped hands.It’s a great item to put on my desk and watch the play of light on.Anytime,I want a physical reminder of the abundance of good things God has given me in life,I have but to pick up this modak.

One of the items for auction ,that caught my attention was a gold foot ball .All the items up for auction have  been donated by devotees whose wishes have been granted.So when we see a model house or cradle we can guess what wish was granted.Now a football?Makes you wonder what the wish was for…..Also last year I remember seeing such a foot ball in the papers too.So I got googling after dinner and came across a shocking story in an old copy of the Mid-Day:Link Read more of this post

Shades Of Nagarwala?


As soon as I read of the PSU employee impersonating Sonia Gandhi on the phone and trying to influence the coal allocation case in today’s papers,Link,I was reminded of the old Nagarwala scandal.Link.

In this case too, I suppose ‘We the People’ can’t  be sure we are going to hear the whole truth.

But most definitely both cases show what miracles the name Mrs.G likely accomplishes,Never mind whether it was the senior Mrs G or the current one!

Gets one wondering what all is got done in the country in the name  of Mrs,G……….
