Practical Jokes On TV Irritating All

A college going girl waits at a bus stop. A man acts like a mad one and revolves around the girl. The girl gets irritated. As he is mad, the people around also take that easy although they shout for sometime. After looking at the girl's disgust, the mad man laughs and shows a cameraman shooting that from behind a tree.

Similarly, a man keeps on frightening the people shouting 'bomb'. After a while the man calls all the people who he frightened and shows a cameraman behind a bush shooting this practical joke.

Some TV shows are irritating the people with this concept they have chosen. ZEE Telugu's 'Time Pass', POGO's 'Just for laughs gags' and many other programs of other channels are of same genre. They are the shows where people are teased practically in public places and that will be recorded and shown for TV viewers for fun. Although they sound interesting for viewers, the people those get harassed or disturbed will get irritated that they go to the extent of beating the TV crew at some instances.

But still those shows are getting good ERP Ratings all over.

YSR vs Babu: Who's worrying whom

Yes, it all depends on which side of the fence one is in. But leading Telugu daily Eenadu believes that Telugu Desam supremo and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is causing troubles to Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy and the Congress through the TD's pre-poll populist schemes. The TD schemes have become a worrying factor for the Congress government, it screams.

The actual scenario is that both the Congress and the Telugu Desam are worried about the outcome of the May 2009 Assembly elections. These polls are going to be crucial. For the Telugu Desam, a defeat in the May 2009 polls means a long wait to try luck for power in May 2014 elections. By then there may be many changes in the Telugu Desam, which is virtually depending on the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu. There's no alternative leadership in the Telugu Desam. TD leaders may not wait for that long without power so there's chances of the party being affected badly through largescale exodus of senior leaders.

And for the Congress, a defeat in the polls means that its populist schemes and irrigation projects have failed to yield results. The general trend in the country is that people are giving second chance to political parties. So a party ruling for 10 consecutive years has become a sort of norm in the country of late. If Congress loses, it simply means that it has failed to govern well and people have not given it a second chance, though it has become a norm.

In reality both YSR and NCB are a worried lot. But trumpet blowers see otherwise and blow their trumpets in favour of their respective leaders.

Opinion: Sunitha Williams Hype When Not Indian!

I am a Software Engineer working in USA .I am an adrant reader of great Andhra news. I really like the positive criticism you give to the various public issues. I have been seeing something in the News papers Lately, the Hype created around Sunitha Williams, First women in space.

Let's get into the back ground of Sunitha Williams. Deepak Pandya and his Slovenian-American wife, Bonnie, are the parents of American astronaut Sunitha Williams. Only Sunitha's Father is Indian and he left India long back. I am happy if we appreciated Sunitha for her effort , but the problem i see with the Media is they have made Sunitha Williams a super hero among Indians? , projecting her as the icon of india. How can she be an indian when her Mother is not an Indian and she is not born in India. If we start considering her Indian Origin then i think we can find lot of great people someway linked to the Indian Origin. How does it make India proud by giving pivotal importance to these people on their trips to India. Even the mother land of Sunitha Williams , USA is not carried away by her achievements.

Instead the press should be doing a better job by highlighting the fact that there are a lot of talented Scientists and Engineers, working in ISRO and other Government organizations who are under paid and over worked and media should stress the role Indian governement should play is to encourage these people to reach unfathomable depths of success, instead media and the indian government is carried away with the euphoria of Sunitha's achievement.What good does Sunitha visiting President of India or meeting some kids help? It's high time for Indian press to play a positive role for the development of nation and not to manufacture consent.


Ponting used 'harsh words', complains Dhoni

Hyderabad (IANS) - There seems to be no end to the slanging match between Indian and Australian teams during the ongoing seven game one-day series.

Though the third match played here at Rajiv Gandhi stadium did not witness any unsavoury incidents on the field like in the Kochi one-dayer, Indian captain M.S. Dhoni alleged that his Australian counterpart Ricky Ponting used some harsh words.

To a query at the post-match press conference, Dhoni said he complained to the match referee against some 'harsh words' used by Ponting during the Indian innings. He, however, refused to elaborate on what those 'harsh words' were.

Both S. Sreesanth and Harbhajan Singh were cool on the field unlike in Kochi as they were asked by the team management to control themselves on the field.

During the Kochi one-dayer, Sreesanth had entered into a heated duel with Andrew Symonds and Brad Haddin.

Harbhajan Singh had also stood mid-wicket after his dismissal to argue with the Australians and had pointed his bat before being veteran umpire Steve Bucknor intervened.

Ponting, who returned to the side after missing the first two games due to injury, had said Thursday that his team was not worried by the new aggressive look of the Indian team. He had remarked that Indians were trying to put up a brave face.

The Aussie skipper had taken potshots at Harbhajan Singh for alleging that Australians used vulgar language against him during the second one-dayer.

'He (Harbhajan) has plenty to say on the field and then whenever someone says something back to him he is the first one to run away from it,' was how Ponting had reacted to the Indian spinner's allegation.

Dhoni: ODI Series Has Become Tougher

The ongoing one-day international (ODI) series against Australia has become tougher and all batsmen need to chip in, said Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni after his team's 47 run loss in the third one-dayer here Friday.

He, however, refused to lay the entire blame on the batsmen, saying the team needed to improve in all departments in the remaining matches.

'We knew that this series is tough and it has now become tougher. Australians now have an upper hand,' admitted the wicket keeper batsman at a post-match press conference. The visitors have taken a 2-0 lead in the seven match series. The first one-dayer at Bangalore was washed out.

Dhoni, who led India to Twenty20 World Cup victory in South Africa last month, said the team bowled well Friday with only 30 runs being scored in the last five overs, but the failure to get a good start during the reply mounted pressure on other batsmen.

'All batsmen need to chip in. We need to get a good start. This is the key. A good initial partnership can help the batsmen coming down the order to manage a seven to 7.5 run-rate in the last overs,' he said.

Dhoni said had he been there for a few more overs with Yuvraj Singh, the situation would have been different. 'Yuvraj is disappointed that the team could not win despite his second good knock here,' he said.

The vice captain scored 121 runs, his second century in as many matches at Rajiv Gandhi stadium here. He had scored 103 in the match against South Africa in November 2005 but the visitors won the match by five wickets.

On former captain Sourav Ganguly being dropped for today's match, Dhoni said he was not 100 percent fit and that the team did not want to take a risk.

Australian skipper Ricky Ponting said he was happy with the way his team was playing. 'But we can't afford to rest on that. We have to keep working hard as there is always room for improvement,' he told the press conference.

'Things have worked out fine so far. Batting was good on a low and slow track like this. I thought we batted really well to post 290,' he said but felt the Australians needed to improve their fielding.

'On the bowling front, (Mitchell) Johnson was terrific, Brett (Lee) got his wickets up front while Stuart (Clarke) has been reliable,' he said.

Man of the match Andrew Symonds said the track required the batsmen to be a bit patient. 'The track kept a little low and it was a bit difficult to score. We tried to get partnerships going. We thought getting to 290 was a good effort,' he said.

Chiranjeevi gives breather for Cong, TD

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/chiranjeevi21191632588.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The "October 2 deadline" has passed and there's no news of film actor Chiranjeevi announcing a new political party in the near future. Though this is not something good news for lakhs of his followers and those belonging to his social group, the ruling Congress and the main Opposition Telugu Desam are a happy lot. The TRS too has taken a breather. But the baron of a media group, who has been thinking of a third alternative force in the State with the film actor in the lead, is also said to be unhappy over the "continued prolonged" delay by Chiranjeevi in announcing his own political party.

According to sources, the film actor is right now not keen on forming a new political party. He wants to study the political situation and then come out with his future plans. Moreover Chiranjeevi has still much of his film career left and if he jumps into politics, he has to leave the film industry once and for all. The film actor is weighing all the pros and cons before coming to a conclusion.

The Congress and the TD are happy over the delay. A delay of a few more months means that there will be no Chiranjeevi political party for the next Assembly polls. With hardly 18 months left for the next polls, the film actor has to announce the party now or wait for yet another poll due for 2014. But it will be too late. The new political party has to settle down and it needs at least one year. It took nine years for NTR to drive his nascent Telugu Desam to victory in 1982-83. If Chiranjeevi does not come out with the announcement before February 2008, it means that there will be a direct fight between the Congress and the Telugu Desam in May 2009 polls.
