Double Whammy for my bong people

I am half a bong so I can talk about myself. So dont throw fish bones at me. Chew them instead ;)

In the last 2 weeks 2 important events happened in West Bengal. 
Nano moved out and Ganguly puts his stinky feet up. These 2 are isolated incidents and both happen in different sections of the newspaper - business and sports. However I read both and since the events happened close by I have to connect the 2 dots. 

Ganguly - love him or hate him he does hold a mind space among us. There is this IndiaWatchDogs website which was born 3 years back mainly because of Ganguly ( to talk on how to throw him out of the Indian team ).  Or the 100000hours of coffee time that bored techies talk about Dada - for and against. Ganguly has done a great service in entertaining the masses. A salute to him. And of course he has scored some runs in that boring game called cricket - which I have striken off from the list of things that I classify as sports. 

Nano - I am waiting eagerly for it. Its like linux - give it to the masses and they will change the world. It wont take much time  before the dead fossil digester - a  28% efficient combustion engine !! is thrown out and some one puts in a 95% efficient electric motor ( yes - compare the doctored lab notes lying on a Thermodynamics lab and a doctored lab notes of a electric machines lab ). I will get one - no will get two nanos once they do that. So I can carry passengers in one and batteries in another.

Now the 2 or 3 month delay my dear Mamta and Buddadheb have caused is a minor set back. But thanks for upping the ante now before Nano started rolling off the assembly line from Singur - and then if they had done their "politics" - Tata could not have pulled out of West Bengal. Thanks thanks and thanks - for your short term vision in your politics too. Love you both. I will give you a dinner in Leela Palace when you come to Bangalore. Its on me.

Now how does Ganguly and Nano link - is it the beginning of an end and the beginning of a new beginning. Whatever - perhaps Tata ropes in Ganguly to model the car - then my bongers will go boinkers. You never know. Now that will be the Raj Bhog gift back to WB from Tata.
