All about politics has a decent summary of Jaya's second term.

Compared to her first term (1991-96), Jayalalithaa Jayaram's second term was more reasonable. This term had its own share of controversies, personal vendettas, stupidities, blame games, mismanagement, prostrations and what not. But it also had its own share of constructive elements as well. If Jayalalithaa manages to negotiate the incumbency factor & manages to scrape through, this writer feels that it would be the case of people feeling "give the devil its due".

Google Finance is live today. It has a few pretty nice features. Give it a try.

I like Godwin's Law. It seems to holds true most of the time ;)

Law : As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.

Barkha Dutt has written a nice column at titled "Will middle India speak up?"

Fifty-nine years after India was born, in a country where there are more Muslims than there are in Pakistan, we are still asking Muslims to wear their nationalism like an identity card; we are still asking for proof of loyalty. This is not their failure. It is ours.
I couldn't agree more.
