Chief Minister Omar Abdullah confirmed to The Indian Express that an 8-km road was being constructed under the NREGS to improve road connectivity and provide employment to local residents. “We had already constructed 4 km of road when the Chinese came and asked to stop the work. We have stopped work on the road. The road was being built between the T-point and CNN-point. We have already informed the Government of India about it.”
He said the road was being constructed for the local population. “It is an inhabited area and the local villagers were building the road under the NREGS.”
SHOULD WE PLAY MUSIC TO THE SONG SUNG BY CHINA?? JUST LIKE ANY OTHER CASE INDIAN GOVERNMENT IS STILL SILENT AND THE HOME MINISTRY SAYS IT'S WAITING FOR THE REPORTS!!! BUT REALLY WILL THESE REPORTS HAVE ANY IMPORTANCE?

"Remember to buy new shoes in the afternoon to get the best fit, since foot swelling can get worse as the day continues. If you buy new shoes in the morning, and your foot is swelling by the afternoon, your shoes will feel too tight."
Shop for your exercise shoes late in the afternoon or soon after about of exercise, when you’re feet will be closer to the size they swell to. If that’s not feasible, get them about half a size larger than your normal shoes.

A man who failed to obey that principle found himself hurtling out of the cockpit, smashing through the Perspex canopy and into space after grabbing the black- and yellow-striped handle between his legs. He had inadvertently pulled the eject lever and found himself blasted 100 metres into the sky on his rocket-powered seat.
The South African air force has confirmed the incident that took place last Wednesday, when the passenger took off for a flight with an experienced pilot from South Africa's Silver Falcons air display team. Investigators are assuming that the passenger tried to steady himself while the pilot was putting the Pilatus PC-7 Mk II through its paces by grabbing the eject lever.
"Much of the information has yet to be tested, but it is confirmed that a civilian passenger unintentionally ejected from a Silver Falcons Pilatus PC-7 Mk II Astra during a general flying sortie out of Langebaanweg air force base this week," a South African air force spokesman said. "The passenger was recovered [by helicopter] unharmed, and returned to Langebaanweg. The aircraft landed safely."
The spokesman said the flight had been cleared and all procedures adhered to "prior to the passenger boarding the aircraft", making it unlikely charges would follow.
A retired SAAF instructor pilot said the passenger was extremely lucky to have survived the ejection with barely a scratch.
"We train for this and if you don't get it right, and are not in the correct ejection posture, you can sustain severe spinal cord injuries or even worse," he told South Africa's Sunday Times.
He discounted the possibility that the seat fired of its own accord, as too many safety features were built into the system.
"All it takes is for the firing handle [the rubbery black- and yellow-striped loop] to be pulled up about 2.5cm and you're on your way out."
He said the ejection would have been dramatic. "You get one almighty kick under the backside and then you're gone. The seat separates from the pilot automatically and the chute opens," he said. "This is in case the pilot is incapacitated during the ejection."
Passengers would have been briefed on the ejection sequence and warned that the "loop" between his legs was not to be touched unless the pilot called "Eject, eject, eject" during the flight. Such a briefing is done routinely, even when two qualified pilots are involved in the flight. It is likely the rear cockpit was extensively damaged by the firing of the cartridges and rockets during the ejection.
The Silver Falcons are the SAAF's aerobatic team that perform precision formation and aerobatics displays at airshows around the country. The five pilots are all serving instructors at Central Flying School, Langebaanweg.
As one observer said: "What a trip. That guy took off in an Astra, came down in a parachute, and landed back at base in a helicopter. Not bad for a for a single flip."

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION.
FACT OR FICTION
SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION...
Most people have heard of the "six degrees of separation" theory -- the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by six links.
Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries.
In a world of 6.6 billion people,it does seem hard to believe. The theory of six degrees of separation contends that, because we are all linked by chains of acquaintance, you are just six introductions away from any other person on the planet.
But is the notion just a pop culture myth or a fact of life?
Is this a fact or fiction??
Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. The theory was first proposed in 1929 by the Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy in a short story called "Chains." The story investigated in abstract, conceptual, and fictional terms many of the problems that would captivate future generations of mathematicians, sociologists, and physicists within the field.Karinthy believed that despite great physical distances between the globe's individuals, the growing density of human networks made the actual social distance far smaller.
As a result of this hypothesis, Karinthy's characters believed that any two individuals could be connected through at most five acquaintances.
In the 1950's, Ithiel de Sola Pool (MIT) and Manfred Kochen (IBM) set out to prove the theory mathematically. Although they were able to phrase the question (given a set N of people, what is the probability that each member of N is connected to another member via k_1, k_2, k_3...k_n links?), after twenty years they were still unable to solve the problem to their own satisfaction.
In 1967, American sociologist Stanley Milgram devised a new way to test the theory, which he called "the small-world problem." He randomly selected people in the mid-West to send packages to a stranger located in Massachusetts. The senders knew the recipient's name, occupation, and general location. They were instructed to send the package to a person they knew on a first-name basis who they thought was most likely, out of all their friends, to know the target personally. That person would do the same, and so on, until the package was personally delivered to its target recipient.
Although the participants expected the chain to include at least a hundred intermediaries, it only took (on average) between five and seven intermediaries to get each package delivered. Milgram's findings were published in Psychology Today and inspired the phrase "SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION."
The concept was popularised by John Guare's 1990 play, Six Degrees of Separation, which was turned into a film starring Will Smith, Stockard Channing, Donald Sutherland and Ian McKellen. One of the characters says: 'I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation between us and everyone else on this planet. The President of the United States, a gondolier in Venice, just fill in the names. I find it extremely comforting that we're so close. I also find it like Chinese water torture, that we're so close because you have to find the right six people to make the right connection ... I am bound, you are bound, to everyone on this planet by a trail of six people.'
Then in 1994 students at Pennsylvania's Albright College invented the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in which the challenge was to connect every film actor to Bacon in six cast lists or fewer. Bacon thought the joke would die out, but when it didn't he launched a website, sixdegrees.org, bringing together people interested in helping good causes.
In 2001, Duncan Watts, a professor at Columbia University, attempted to recreate Milgram's experiment on the Internet, using an e-mail message as the "package" that needed to be delivered, with 48,000 senders and 19 targets (in 157 countries). Watts found that the average (though not maximum) number of intermediaries was around six.
A Face book platform application named “Six Degrees” has been developed by Karl Bunyan (London network), which calculates the degrees of separation between different people. It has about 4.5 million users (as of April 7, 2008), as seen from the group's page. The average separation for all users of the application is 5.73 degrees, whereas the maximum degree of separation is 12.
THE THEORY WHICH SUPPORTS THE PHRASE HAS NOT BEEN DRAFTED YET, BUT A STUDY SAYS THE 60% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE IN THE THEORY. THE THEORY CAME INTO LIME LIGHT IN 1929. AND EVEN TODAY THERE ARE RESEARCH'S ON THE GIVEN TOPIC.
THIS IS ONE OF THE THEORY THAT CAN'T BE GIVE A MATHEMATICAL OR SCIENTIFIC PROOF.IT DEPENDS ON PROBABILITY AND TRIAL AND ERROR METHOD .SO THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SAY THE THEORY DOESN'T STAND GOOD.AND IN ALL THE ABOVE EXPERIMENTS IT IS ONLY A "CO-INCIDENCE."
If the theory is right,you might be SIX STEPS SHORT OF PRESIDENT OF AMERICA,OR YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY OR EVEN A TERRORIST .
SO WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON THE THEORY??

IPL...INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE... has been in news for last two years...
drew a lot of news....controversies...debates...and everything which gave a perfect publicity to the league..
First it was about the auction and the money that was spent on each player....
then it was about the stardom involved.....
sometimes dress code of the cheer leaders...
some other time it is songs and promos that each team had...
then slapping the opposition players...
players caught with drugs....and
then team franchises having a go at their players,coach and captain ....so on...
But out and out it was a big hit that even affected the success of big multistarers in bollywood...
It is believed that the channel which bought the satellite rights had an awesome profits...
The latest controversy which is in news is about the safety and security of the players .
The recent incidents that took place ;say 26/11,terrorist attack on srilankan players made the cricketing world to think twice about playing cricket in INDIAN SUBCONTINENT.
While there are players who already posing a doubt over their participation in the second edition...Indian home ministry had made it clear that " CRICKET WHEN PLAYED IN INDIA IS SAFE".
But the ministry is surly concern about providing paramilitary forces " IF NECESSARY"(as the ministry stress on!!)....because the schedule of IPL will be clashing with the general elections that are to be held at the same time..
ministry feels that it may not provide enough security if required at some point of time.So they have asked to postpone the league which is almost impossible..so what the organizers have planned is to change the schedule .According new schedule ,cricket will be played only on the days where there is no election going on!!
This whole episode leads us into a big debate...
SHOULD IPL GO ON IN THE PRESENT SITUATION ??IS THE MILLION DOLLER QUESTION
A SET OF SO CALLED PESSIMISTIC PEOPLE ARGUE ABOUT POSTPONEMENT OF THE LEAGUE.
They feel that Indian security system is not as affective so as to provide their 100% simultaneously fot both the major events.According them it is a risky job to take up, taking into consideration the latest developments in India.They feel that providing fool proof security to both the major events is our prime responsibility which is not possible in present situation.They feel that it an issue of national pride and if anything oddy takes place it would be treated as a dent in the history of India.It is also sure that this may affect the world cup that is to be held in 2011,which would be a bigger and prestigious event that IPL.They argue that for the sake of few corers , risking the players life is not approppriate .
So either of the event,IPL or GENERAL ELECTION can go on .Postponing election don't make any sence in a democracy like ours.So the only option we can play safe is by postponing the IPL.This ensure both safety of the game as well as players.Mainly people belonging to the age group 40+ are strongly opposing that both the events can be held simultaneously .Even if there is a change in the schedule, they feel that there is no need to play cricket in the present situation where cricketers are the being targeted keeping in view Lahore incident.They also stress the point that playing cricket with fear at back of your mind is of no fun!!!
On the other side they are people who still say that both the events can go hand in hand.May because of the huge sum of money involved or even to save country's pride(which sounds business interesting).They also feel that People outside India don't see us as one, they see India,Pak,Sri lanka & Bangladesh under same roof and we need to prove them wrong!!!So IPL is a opportunity to prove where India stands.Some may also disagree with the fact that there is security concerns. Security concerns can't be completely ruled out in the present situation.
The test matches that played between India and Australia just after the 26/11 stands as a proof for the security that is provided for cricketer who tour India.They also say that it is not the matter of huge sums of money involved; it's all related to country's pride.WHY SHOULD WE STOP CRICKET JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED IN AN OTHER PART OF THE WORLD? which can't be given a convening answer.As the ministry says "cricket is India was always safe and will be in the future" strengthens their argument.And there are people who disagree with the postponement just because of huge sums of money and stardom involved.
IPL chief MR.LALITH MODI feels that the new schedule will wash away all the fear at back of players minds and and other persons who would think conducting IPL during election time is risky.He ensures full safety both to the players and people who come to watch it.After a week long discussion with home ministry, a new schedule has been drawn and IPL would go on floors as scheduled on 10th of April.The new schedule has been drafted keeping in view the availability of security forces,election dates and also in connection with the concern state government.
I personally feel that people are either fully supporting the issue or disagreeing with it.Yes there are concerns about the security.But whole of this controversy is triggered with the incident that took place in Lahore.The ministry had no issues until and unless, this unusual situation raised.It's unique , they didn't even know that they couldn't provide enough security not because of the terrorist attacks, but because the dates clash with the general elections that are to be held.Better late then never they have realized the fact that security "MAY" not be sufficient for league, hence asked the IPL panel to change the schedule.
The schedule has been changed keeping in view the election dates in particular states.
This clearly says one thing that "security is required only on the day when matches are on"!!! Which is crazy.The players need security rite from the day they land in India till they depart. This fact is over looked in drawing the new schedule.Election commission can conduct election across India on 1 day itself.But it doesn't do this because it it not possible to provide sufficient administrative supporta and security across India on 1 particular day.That is reason why elections are conducted lap wise.Which mean there is no enough security for election itself.So "how can an another major event take place??" is a question that everyone should look at.
But if there is tight security and perfect planning, conducting both the events is not a impossible task.The home ministry should take utmost care in providing security to both the events.If it happens,then India will be looked as one of the safe places in the world.Hope everything goes on with any problem!!!
THERE IS SOMETHING INTERESTING HERE....
THERE WAS A SURVEY CONDUCTED ON THE PRESENT TOPIC...WHERE IN 60% WANTED BOTH THE EVENTS TO GO ON.....35% WANTED TO POSTPONE THE EVENT(IPL) CONSIDERING ELECTIONS TO BE MORE IMPORTANT.
BUT THERE WERE 5% PEOPLE WHO WANTED ELECTIONS TO BE POSTPONED!!!
WAT DO U FEEL??
OVER AND OUT WE WILL BE ABLE TO WITNESS IPL
INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE or
INDIAN POLITICAL LEAGUE
OR EVEN BOTH OF THEM WHICH PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO

THIS WOULD BE MY FIRST POTS ON MY BLOG AND I'M FEELING GREAT BECAUSE I'V STARTED OFF WITH A BLOG ABOUT MY FAVORITE CRICKETER
MARCH 08 2009 would be the day no cricket fan in India would ever forget....SACHIN TENDULKAR'S KNOCK OF 163 OF 131 BALLS..
In the fives overs before Sachin Tendulkar had to retire hurt, he had scored 34 runs. India were in the 45th over of their innings and had Tendulkar batted on there was every chance he would have become the first double-centurion in ODI cricket. He needed 37 more at that point and if physically possible, Tendulkar would have tried his best.
Midway during his knock he started struggling with a sore muscle where he was hit in the abs in the previous game. "When I was around 65 to 70, I started feeling stiffness there," Tendulkar said, "but towards the latter half of my innings I starting getting a twitch and it kept getting worse. I knew that I was effectively damaging it, and that was a stage when I couldn't go on."
He said he was hopeful of getting a double-century towards the end of India's innings, while Brendon McCullum, New Zealand's stand-in captain, said only when Tendulkar walked off did it seem out of reach.
Tendulkar wasn't his usual cheery self when he came for the press conference. After he scores a century in a winning cause he's usually in a much brighter mood. Perhaps the injury was on his mind, perhaps it was just the pain, perhaps it was having to sit in the dressing room as India struggled to defend 392.
As regards the injury, Tendulkar said he would come to know more tomorrow. What brought him cheer was when he was asked if this was the best batting line-up he had been a part of. "I would definitely say so," came the answer. "We have got almost five to six guys who can clear the ropes at will. If we get four or five good overs, we end up scoring 50-plus runs. At no stage we are away from our target. At the back of our minds we knew that with such an explosive line-up, no target is impossible."
Tendulkar showed signs of mortality, and like many others forgot how many centuries he now has in ODIs. He just has so many it's tough to keep a count. But what's next after No. 43? Fifty? "I am enjoying the game," Tendulkar said. "I just want to go out an enjoy my game and not have targets. While doing that if it happens, well and good. The most important factor is to keep enjoying my game, and keep winning games for India."
Tendulkar wouldn't rate this against some of his other hundreds. "When you are making runs it gives you happiness," he said. "I don't believing in giving it ratings."
A last word on the quality of the knock should go the captain who was at the receiving end. "I can hardly remember a shot that didn't come out of the middle," McCullum said. "There were times as well that he played with half a blade and hit in areas that he precisely wanted to. I don't think I have seen too many better innings, in any form of the game.
