The need for vocational training

A West Bengal resident, who police claimed was behind the killing of three witnesses and four attempts to murder witnesses in rape cases lodged against self-styled godman Asaram and his son Narayan Sai, has been arrested by the Gujarat ATS and Ahmedabad Detection of Crime Branch in a joint operation.

Karthik alias Raju Dulalchand Haldar, resident of Ramlochanpur in South 24 Parganas, had become a ‘sadhu’ in 2000 and a follower of Asaram, police said.

ATS officers said Karthik was arrested from Sarona Bazar in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, where he had been hiding. They said Karthik hadn’t taken any weapon training, one reason why four of his targets survived.

See why vocational training is so important? There are other points here, but you know what they are so I’ll desist.

And on a personal note: The other half’s birthday today. When I asked her what she wanted, she said “Internet se azaadi, for one day — all I ever see of you is the back of your laptop and the dome of your head sticking above it. Not today.”

What to do? All together, now:

“Hum kya chaahte? Internet se Azaadi”

See you tomorrow, therefore.

  1. Many happy returns of the day to Mrs P! Hope she gets you off the net for today.

    And that’s a good idea too, I think I’ll ask my husband if he can leave the internet for a day 😀
    Thanks 😛 😀

  2. OK, cannot resist one more.. sorry… this is the result of not implementing S-Kill India.. for sure… the wave of the future.. the need of the hour 😀 goes well with Break (bones) in India.. then there is USTTAD — Upgrading Skills and Training in Traditional Arts/Crafts for Development apparently… wah usttad wah… arey wah Taj boliye (Ok, let us just say Wah Tejo Mahalaya wah.. har har Tejo Mahalaya as well).

    Who the bloody hell invents these acronyms? May I get paid for it as well? It could be lucrative, given the penchant of the Supreme Leader to utter these every hour…. NITI ayog, SMART, P2G2, 3D, 5T… gah… never mind.. even I cannot stoop to that level…

  3. well… er… wife-vaad se, azaadi… family-vaad se azaadi… etc etc.. Lal salaam to Comrade Internet…
    Easy for me to say it… I can safely type this out without my wife looking at it.. 😀
