“Now, henceforth, I will not contest an election and will not indulge in power politics,” the BJP stalwart, who has been in public life since 1951, told thousands of BJP supporters gathered at the party's mammoth rally at Shivaji Park in Central Mumbai. (From Deccan Herald)
"I have nothing to say more when our Ram and Lakshman are ready (Read: L.K.Advani & Pramod Mahajan)"I seriously wonder how a leader like Pramod Mahajan who has a little mass support has made it the second spot in the hierarchy. These leaders can never tolerate a person who has a very good supporter base. Time and agaian leaders like Keshubhai Patel, Kalyan Singh and Uma Bharati who have a large supporter base have been cornered and pushed out of party.

Last year, on the 26th December, an earthquake, and then a tsunami, killed, wounded, or impoverished hundreds of thousands of people in South Asia.December 26, 2005 - January 1, 2006 is being commemerated as Rememberance week to mourn the damage to life and property by natural disasters like Tsunami, Hurricanes Katrina & Rita, Kashmir Earthquake and other disasters .
During the course of the year, other disasters took their toll too. Most devastating of them: Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the South-East coast of the USA; and another enormous earthquake near Pakistan's border with India.
These disasters took their immediate toll, and, each time, the world tried to help. But as calamity piled upon calamity, there has been a certain amount of fatigue. Perhaps people's stock of goodwill has run low. Perhaps seeing too much suffering hardens us.
But, the fact is, the suffering from those disasters has not ceased. Parts of South Asia have still not recovered from December 26th, 2004. In the USA, normalcy hasn't returned to New Orleans. In Pakistan, thousands are still homeless, and may not survive the harsh Himalayan winter.(From World Wide Help Blog)
