I have visited Andorra a year back and my small experience may come in handy for my readers. Firstly Andorra also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra. This is a small landlocked country in southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees Mountains. It is bordered by Spain and France. It is the sixth smallest nation in Europe having an area of 468 km2 (181 sq mi) and an estimated population of 84,082 in 2009. The Andorrans speak Catalan, but Spanish and French are understood. Since 1278 the role of monarch is exercised jointly by the two co-princes, the President of the French Republic and the Bishop of Urgell, Catalonia. Andorra is a prosperous country mainly because of its tourism industry. Last year it serviced an estimated 10.2 million visitors. Many visitors like to visit Andorra not only for a sojourn in a beautiful place, but also to pick up a good date for company and romance.

Britain in Eclipse

A nations standing in the world depends on its military might. This is a fact of history and is as true today as it was yesterday. There was a time when the British on the back of raw materials of their colonies boasted a great army.They ruled almost half the world and the adage' sun never sets on the British empire' was true. All that is changed, the loss of the colonies has reduced Britain to the status of 5th rate power. They are not even the dominent force in Europe, butfor American usupport England would like an old man waiting to die. The British have not yet realized their true status and like the proverbial frog trying to emulate a lion, talk big with no muscle. In fact they are little more than an appendage of the United States. The membership of the security council is jarring,as the British have no power to intervene anywhere in the world with a puny army of 85000 and aircraft carrier. So they just carry out the orders of the US president and make pretense as a great power. Despite their 5th rate military status, the British have not stopped trying to show muscle on the back of the USA. Thus their interventions in Libya and meddling in Syria. They know not that this is dangerous game and when they topple the dictators they usher in a Wahhabi form of Islamic rule that strikes at the British themselves with great force. I remember Nikita Khruschev the Russian leader who stated that Great Britain in a war would not survive 5 H bombs. That is the stark reality. Its about time the British learnt the game of power politics.Cant forget Mao who stated ' power comes out of a barrel of a gun'.

An Indian site Gone to Seed

I am a strong nationalist and believe that in all fields India should reign supreme. this also applies to writing sites as well. Over the years I have seen some promising writing sites folding up from India. It is sad, but sometimes inevitable as the professionalism that one attributes to writing from the west is not given that much importance  in India. One site that appeared on the scene and promised much is . It announced a payment of $2 per 1000 page views. Thats pretty good, but that was the beginning and the end of the site. The site failed to make an impact and after writing for almost 6 months on this site  I can conclude that a prolific writer will get frusterated by the antics of the site and its promoters. The site is supposed to be a writing site and writers are invited to submit their post to the site. The result however is nothing short of frusterating. The articles posted on the site take 8-10 days to review and a writer can get exparated waiting for the site to publish your article.  This is difficult to understand as with the latest software available publishing an article is in reality an easy job. The result of the inordinate dealy is terrible and writers are shying away from writing on the site. An example is that in a given month the site published just 10-12 articles. Considering hubpages publishes over 60 in a day, one can compare the negative approach of the site. Sadly the site cannot generate any revenue with 10-12 articles published every month. Obviously the writing is on the wall. Another point is the complete lack of any customer support as any email or feed back is never replied. What next ? I think I will give this site a go by for to write and earn 20 cents a month is not my cup of tea,

Obama Will Win Again

Recently an American asked me how come I was interested in the US Presidential election as I was far away in Singapore and India. Let me clarify, there are many reasons for it. Firstly I have many relations in the USA and secondly I have been to the US very frequently since 1991 when I first spent a considerable period with the US Air Force. Latly I almost became an American by marrying an American girl when I was working with the United Nations. Bad luck or good luck it didnt happen.
The above is just incidental to my main theme. I wont write a long one, but I am now more than ever convinced that Obama is going to sit in the Oval office again. My opinion is buttresed by a recent survey by 3 of the most respected organizations in the USA who have conducted an opinion poll. Sure, sometimes these polls can go haywire, but in this case all 3 point to one aspect that Obama is leading by 7-9 percentage points over his rival Mitt Romney.
The organizations who have conducted this poll are Reuters, CNN and Fox news. None of them are partisan or pro-Obama. They have reported the ground situation and the polls show that Mitt is lagging. This won't be happy news for him and with the poll date nearing it will be difficult for him to bridge this gap. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction and the fact is the economy has taken a back seat and the positives of Obama( maybe by default) have come to the fore. But his second term where he will have to face a resurgent Islam will test his mettle. It will not help that his father was a Muslim and he himself attended 2 years at a Madrasa( Islamic religious school)

A Marriage in the White House

The world has strange tales and one of them concerns an American President who married in Office. His name is Grover Cleveland and I am sure not many would have heard of him. Cleveland was president of the USA for 2 non consecutive terms from 1885-89 and 1893-97. Cleveland became President in 1995. At that time he was a bachelor. He was however a feisty fellow and it was rumored that he loved young women. An opportunity came his way when his partner and close friend Oscar Folsom died and in his will appointed Cleveland as his executor of the will. On one of his visits to his friends home to execute his will Cleveland saw the youngest daughter of his colleague , a 21 year old beautiful pure American girl name Francis
. Cleveland desired her though she was 28 years younger to him. He visited the home of his deceased friend often and got the permission of his widow to correspond with Francis. The girls at 21 was also swept of her feat at a US president falling for her and consented to marry, when Cleveland proposed. The marriage took place in the white house and it was a gala celebration. I don’t think there has been a marriage in the white house or a younger lady than Francis who was only 21. Passion now took its toll and Francis conceived 5 times from Cleveland giving birth to 5 children of whom 4 survived to live long ages.
From all accounts it was a happy marriage and but Cleveland because of health problems expired in 1908, Leaving Francis a young widow. She was concerned at living a life all alone and in 1913 fell in love again and married a professor who had thought at her college earlier. He was Thomas Preston. She was married to him for 34 years and died in 1947. Francis however has left an endearing image of glorious and lovely first lady. The Press and public liked her and I don’t think her record of being the youngest first lady at 21 in the white house will be broken

Why Gandhi Let Bhagat Singh Hang * 71

Gandhi and Bhagat Singh were two individula wih divergent political thought. Bhagat Singh believed in armed struggle to oust the British while Gandhi believd in Ahmisa and non voilence and thus was more accomodating to the british. Obviously a clash was expected and at that period and one fact as brought out is that Bhagat Singh was more popular than Gandhi, Gandhi was a whimsical and shrewd politician and he resolved that Bhagat Singh must be finished politically so that he remained the undisputed leader.

 Thus when the famous trial of Bhagat Singh commenced , Gandhi maintained a studious silence. Many requests were made to him about Bhat Singh, which he steadfastly ignored. When Bhagat Singh was awarded the death sentence , Gandhi was again requested to appeal to the Viceroy to commute the sentence of Bhagat Singh to life in jail. Gandhi again refused and one wonders how such a man can be called a 'Mahatma'. Gandhis's reason for refusing to intercede with the Viceroy or make any appeal was simple: he dreaded that an alive Bhagat Singh would be a threat to his authority and more important his philosophy.
History records that Bhagat Singh and his associates were hanged by the British at night against all canons of Jail law and the prison manual and Gandhi kept quiet. At that time Gandhi's popularity touched rock bottom and he was greeted with black flags when he visited Karachi and other places after the hanging.

The episode leaves a sour taste in the mouth and the fact is Bhagat Singh and his associates were hanged and Gandhi we can surmise heaved a sigh of relief. There are many facates of Gandh's life that need to be published and some more research done on them. The hanging of Bhagat Singh and his comrades is one of them and I am afraid it shows Gandhi in very poor light

Playing Golf at the US Club, Mumbai

The Raj is one period that is reviled by a lot of people, but there are many and they are growing in larger numbers who realize that the Raj ushered in a lot of good things as well. The British, who ruled India had a military presence in Bombay, felt the need for an officers club at Bombay. Thus in 1928 permissions were granted to set up this exclusive club for the officers of the British Indian Army and navy. The Golf Course The club is located in the military area and access to the club is a fairly tardy process what with the guard posts and check posts that are the hall mark of a military area. The club is now often called the United Services Club and is jointly managed by the 3 services. The club is located on defense land by the side of the sea at the southernmost tip of Bombay. The piece de resistance of the club is the Golf course which is unique in itself. The course is as per international standards and is a 18 hole course covering 6072 yards. It is a par-70 course. The course abuts the Arabian Sea and being close to the ocean needs adjustment of your game as the sea breeze and wind becomes an important factor.
At one edge of the course is a concrete wall with a paved path that is ideal for an evening walk as the sea breeze envelops the area. Playing the Game Playing golf at this club is an experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in India. The course has a lot of par 3 and 4 and a water hazard as well. It’s a great course and is open from first light to sun set, the year round. The greens are very well maintained and the holes are clearly marked. But while putting the ball you will have to make allowances for the wind that sometimes blows in with great force. Some of the holes are close to the sea and a long shot with the woods may well result in the ball sailing into the sea, aided by the wind. There is also a bar counter right in the center of the course and you can have a swig of beer and continue your game.
Foreigners are not allowed into the club or to play Golf. Membership is also restricted and generally only service officers are allowed to be members. But a civilian can play as a guest of a member. The club is a unique place and rivals some of the best courses abroad. It certainly remains a feather in the cap of Bombay and we can only say ‘thank you’ to the British who left behind such a wonderful course

Indians cannot win in Singles in Tennis

Tennis is a game that is fairly popular in India. Introduced by the English rulers the game has a fair following. Slightly elitist, the game is still played in almost all clubs and colleges. Despite the reasonable popularity of the game there is one jarring aspect that stands out. Though the Indians have produced a string of doubles champions, there is hardly a player of international stature in singles. Indians have won many double titles, but I can’t recollect an Indian winning a singles grand slam title like Wimbledon in the last 70 years. This is certainly food for thought and one wonders why this should be so. A look at the Indian greats of tennis shows that only one player Ramanath Krishnan made it twice to the semi-finals at Wimbledon. On both counts he lost to the man who went on to win the title. Krishnan was a man who perfected the ‘touch artist’ game, but I do not think he won any grand slam singles title.
We had some good players coming in. There were the Amriitraj brothers Vijay and Anand, the son of Ramanath Krishnan, Ramesh Krishnan nd now we have Laender Paes and Mahesh and Bopanna. However a look at their careers shows that they are good doubles players but a singles title has eluded them. What could be the reason? In doubles and mixed doubles many of these players have won grand slam titles and even now Leander Paes is a finalist in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon.
The fact is that a singles game is very demanding and requires a great degree of fitness. This is where the Indian players chicken out. I can only say that lack of physical fitness in comparison to the greats of tennis like Rod laver, Rosewall, Connors, Agassi and others the Indians don’t stand anywhere. There were cases when Vijay Amritraj led in the singles in many a match against the greats of tennis only to lose in the end as he perhaps lacked stamina. Technique wise they may be good, but winning in singles is something that has eluded an Indian for too long. One wonders when it will change.
