    Braveheart vs Gladiator

    Both films are epic and winner of 5 Oscars including for best picture. Which one do you like better?
  5. The concern about the issue should come from the people in general not the government, which I presume is spending the “billions”. This is not about the govt’s reaction on Chopra. Next question would be is spending money enough? What Ind or Indians did or did not in past is irrelevant. Population and Pollution control, cleanliness drive, caring for animals, safeguarding women’s interests, etc., are basics concepts. And the idea that government has to be involved with these (by spending money for e.g.) speaks about how less sensitive people in general in Ind could be for such issues

    Braveheart vs Gladiator

    Both movies have some epic scenes:
  7. That is true for many countries and in general the subcontinent. Let's not forget that Pakistan and BD have a larger population than countries such as Australia as well .... There is more to it than just the size of population including resources available per capita
  8. It means that let's not take the a country of 1B people can't win medals, etc. line

    Ramzan Ceasefire

    India has no consistent policies. Leave Kashmir to the experts (army)
  10. If only India was more or as sensitive about controlling its population and pollution levels, along with improving situation for women, kids, elders and animals
  11. The toilet themselves should remain clean and therefore usable. Education to keep the toilets spot clean should be a part of the initiative .... Ind needs a policy on cleanliness covering everything from personal hygiene to the water sources (no water systems do not equal to places where you can dump things)

    It is real
  13. If they can’t even respect govt property, how can people trust such folks to run the government?
  14. From wiki: “The version of Article 19 in the ICCPR later amends this by stating that the exercise of these rights (Freedom of speech) carries "special duties and responsibilities" and may "therefore be subject to certain restrictions" when necessary "[f]or respect of the rights or reputation of others" or "[f]or the protection of national security or of public order (order public), or of public health or morals".” “Freedom of speech and expression, therefore, may not be recognized as being absolute, and common limitations to freedom of speech relate to libel, slander, obscenity, pornography, sedition, incitement, fighting words, classified information, copyright violation, trade secrets, food labeling, non-disclosure agreements, the right to privacy, the right to be forgotten, public security, and perjury.“
  15. iirc, this was only the second time an African team made it to QFs
  16. We need to be relatively mystery spinners to win tests
  17. Good to see a confident AFG team. Reminds me of African soccer teams whose key players play in European leagues, and bring that experience to make their national teams more competitive. These teams can be dangerous on their day

    Unusual Films

    This can be based on plot, presentation, etc. Inception (well ....) Bram Stocker's Dracula (this film has that surreal quality that makes it unusual. The vivid colors, gothic sets, bad acting, etc., combine to create an interesting atmosphere)

    Book and Detailed Movie Reviews

    I have a few books in my collection by Kurt Vonnegut, who writes in the genre that you mentioned. I haven't started reading them yet. Books that I have from Vonnegut: Mother Night, Cat's Cradle, Slaughter House Five, and Breakfast of Champions (read a little and impressed me straight away which led to purchase of other books)

    Watchmen is not as bad as it is made out to be
  23. Betting and fixing are different. But in the current status, betting and fixing are likely to go together as not many would dump millions without some sort of guarantee of return on investment
