A brief reflection on my two days in Latur
by Eric Linge
I am an active volunteer with CRY America, and basically what we do in CRY America is fundraise for projects in India. I was working for a private company in Mumbai over the summer, and while in Mumbai I took the opportunity to visit one of CRY’s projects in the interiors of Maharashtra. Specifically I visited a collection of villages around the town of Latur.What struck me most is everything I didn’t see. The villages around Latur were not desperate. They even seemed comfortable. But the organization that now partners with CRY has been working in the area for 24 years to get to this point. Oxfam is aiding the organization too. While the landowning classes were formerly able to extract slave labor from the Dalits, now the Dalits are collectively farming their own land. The Dalits still farm others’ land too, but now, knowing that they have their own land, the Dalits have the leverage and the confidence to command higher wage…

Marathi Paul Padti pudhe......!/ Marathi Paul Rocking...!

Vikram Panditanche Citigroupche CEO zalya baddal hardik abhinandan.......!
Marathi mansa aasach pudhe chalat raha......! Rock it..!


As expected, Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) today named Vikram Pandit as its new CEO, replacing the hugely unpopular Charles Prince. Acting CEO Win Bischoff replaced former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin as chairman. Rubin didn't want the job permanently.As pundits including CNBC's Charles Gasparino pointed out, Citigroup's board didn't feel that Pandit had enough experience to get both jobs. That's no slight against Pandit, who joined New York-based Citigroup after selling the company his hedge fund for $900 million. Few if any people are experienced in the huge variety of business at Citigroup which is why Pandit says "simplifying the company's organizational structure and aligning our businesses and resources with appropriate goals and economic realities will be among our initial priorities."So what does that mean?W…

A guy from Village to An IAS!

New Delhi, May 14 (IANS) Mutyalaraju Revu, an Other Backward Class (OBC) candidate from a small village, has topped the highly competitive civil services examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) at a time when the country debates the issue of reservation for OBCs in higher education.
Revu, 27-year-old son of a farmer in small village in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh, has surpassed 473 successful candidates including 214 general category qualifiers to top the merit list.
His uncle Venkanna was all praise for Revu, who is currently serving in the Andhra Pradesh Police. Revu, who has always been a brilliant student, has done his Masters in Electronics from the premier Indian Institute of Sciences (IISC), Bangalore.
"I am really thrilled after hearing about Revu topping the examination. I had a word with him and he is equally thrilled as well. It's a great news for all our family members," Venkanna told IANS from west Godavari district on telepho…

NExt Generation...HEY GOD....!

It was incident before this diwali. I was going to Manvat for Diwali on this 2/11 by Nandigram. I had no confirm ticket but the RAC which I shared with two girls from
"J J college of Architecture Mumbai"(First time lucky in this case). Both were good
or can be given " B+ grade".But story about the next generation is something different which brings referances from these girls.
As it was Diwali vaccations no seats were available. And some 10 to 15 students along with their teacher who used to teach them Chess were going for the State level Chess tournament at Aurangabad. Mostly the students were boys (after some days I heard that daughter of Kumarmangalam Birla won that tournament although the boys were in majority)!
OK.We will proceed with the story. The guys were really intelligent and naughty.They didn't
let any one in that coach sleep. They were making noise. But their teacher came and started scolding guys.Students didn't listen him.And then teacher …

Very good site for the Marathi Songs:

Enjoy This Diwali ....
May this time God will enlighten the lives of millions of deprived on this earth...
MAy the naked children will get something to wear...
may they will be full stoumach for these days......
May god give smile to all those crying all the day....
May god give us power to do this.....!
Jai Maharashtra!
