'Today's inspirational slogans' - by K.J.S.Chatrath

Hon'ble Prime Minister has enthused all Indians by exorting  "Karenge aur kar ke rahenge" (करेंगे और कर के रहेंगे) 

Haryana Government too has come out with a mood brightening slogan  "Gazab Asar, Tez Raftar, Kathni Karni Ekay Saar" (गज़ब असर, तेज़ रफ़्तार, कथनी करनी एके सार)

'Oh these inspirational quotes! Bah!' - by K.J.S.Chatrath

I am sick of finding Facebook full of "inspirational " quotes, more often then not from little known C class American authors just playing with words.

Do these quotes show that person posting these is a great intellectual?  Well...well....

I am seriously thinking of un-friending all those who put inspirational quotes.....

What sayeth thou?

"Railways - 'easy to clean' versus 'actually cleaned' blankets" - by K.J.S.Chatrath


"Railways To Introduce Designer, Easy-To-Clean Blankets Soon" ...News

As a frequent traveller by train let me say that these smarty announcements wont do. The earlier news had said that the blankets in railways are got washed once in six months.

What the passengers want are clean and functionally useful blankets and not fancily designed thin blankets as supplied in the airplanes. 

One is not impressed by 'easy to wash' blankets but would like to be supplied with actually washed & cleaned blankets. 

Sorry, only smarty announcements wont do. 

By the way one knows for sure that Air India is headed by an officer on deputation from Indian Railways.

Please don't tell me that Indian railways are headed by some one from Air-India on deputation!
