Kiran Bedi opting for voluntary retirement

I know that's not very good news. Because we have been looking upon her since so long and if she is seeking voluntary retirement, there must be something wrong.

She is the first woman IPS officer in the country appointed in 1972 and she has has sought voluntary retirement now in 2007. Here is something I can smell. When it was asked to her if she was upset with the government's reluctance to keep its reported promise to accommodate her in a top position in a para-military force, though she said, "That is not the case. My desire to work from outside the system made me take this decision." still it's not easily believable.

But anyways, we will atleast have her working outside the system though.

Buy your batteries cheaper at

I am very fond of music, and I love to listen to my favorite songs on my MP3 playes almost all day long. I have already got a bunch of rechargeable batteries for myself, so that I never run out of batteries. So, if you are looking for good quality batteries online, is the place! offers a wide range of batteries for almost all models of most popular brands of gadgets like laptops, cell phones, digital cameras, camcorders, DVD players, Cordless phones, PDAs, Notebooks, Scanners, and what not! They also have a special Clearance Sale, where you might find the batteries you want at cheaper rates. They also offer free ground shipping for orders $50 and above. It’s easy to buy gadgets like music players, nice to flaunt them and use them but not so easy efficiently use them. One of the most important parts of a gadget is its battery. If the battery is damaged or it’s not efficient, then the gadget is as good as nothing. So, it’s very important that you choose good quality batteries for your gadgets. In my opinion, it pays to get an additional battery for your favorite gadgets, so that damage in one battery doesn’t stop you instantly from using the gadget.

Fascination about Australian Cities as a Tourist

I have been always fascinated to visit Australia, probably since I watch cricket matches and specially India vs Australia. I have seen Australia many times, but mostly in TV programs and while they show it up during cricket matches. The beautiful scenes and places across Australia have always been a reason to visit Australian cities like Brisbane and Adelaide.

Now I have few friends settled in Melbourne, but when it comes down to Brisbane Accommodation, it will be a question for me. Probably, looking for cheaper hotel deals is the best option and tourism websites like helps a lot to find cheaper deals on Hotels in Adelaide and Brisbane.

When we talk about tour to these cities, you must be wondering what all you have to visit in there. Take Adelaide for example, it is called city of churches and for religious people, it will be a great opportunity to visit so many churches. If you are Arts and Cultures type of person like my wife, you would like to visit Adelaide in March when Arts festival comes every year. When it comes down to person like who is more into variety of drinks, I would certainly like to visit wineries around. This is not only enough but there is lot to enjoy like Tram ride to glenelg, Car racing and cruise the Ledgendary Murray River.

Just like Adelaide, Brisbane is also one of the beautiful cities in Australia and I am all excited to visit beautiful places in Brisbane like Moreton Bay. Moreton Island on On Moreton Bay is famous place in Brisbane where you can feed even dolphins at the Tangalooma Wild Dolphin resort. Spend more time in enjoying the beauty of Brisbane city and be rest assured that your booking in Hotels in Brisbane would be taken care of by reliable resources like

Misuse of Vast Powers by Pune Police to Harass Bangalore Techie Lakshmana Kailash

This is a shocking case for techie people and anyone else in the country who believes law and order. The police can’t get away with a mere apology after they wrongly charging Lakshmana Kailash and putting him in jail for 51 days on the basis of a mistake.

On August 31st, Lakshmana was arrested from his Bangalore home by Pune police under Information Technology Act, 2000 for defaming Chhatrapati Shivaji by uploading denigrated pictures of Shivaji on Orkut. Of course, it's act of ill mentality many communities on Orkut has and they shall be punished.

But this does not entitle the cops to do such mistakes and harass anyone so easily. The cops may argue that they acted in good faith and the error was made by the telecom company, Bharati Airtel. But wasn’t the mistake compounded because of very poor police work? In fact, it is because of police sloppiness — or is it arrogance? — that the youngster has suffered this nightmare.

Currently, the law doesn’t allow for suing the police and other authorities for such mistakes. The law must be changed so that hapless people like Lakshmana can demand and get compensation for being gravely wronged. That will also force the police to be careful while exercising their vast powers.

Promotional Gift Ideas

A lot of my friends are in business now unlike me. Some people have chosen to go into business of clothes or some into business of software development. Few people joined marketing companies. And I keep learning new things about their business and domains.

I was especially interested in marketing jobs my friends are in. For marketing people and friends in business, communication is ammunition to make first impression about their company or products. When these marketing people visit their corporate clients, carrying promotional items along with them helps them to initiate the discussion with any client and go further to discuss about their company.

Such promotional products always help to Medical representatives for branding their company’s medical products across the medical community like doctors and hospital members.

I am not in both of these, but I am aware of the importance of right promotional products or items while you are in business and marketing and want to take your products and business ahead of others in the market. Basically it’s important strategy in business. As the festival season coming up, corporate gifts would be exchanged to make their business relationship stronger and grow together.

Such a small thing, but plays a major role in growth of your business!
