The Commonwealth Games came to an end with a grand closing ceremony that I MEdalTallywas not able to watch, along with most of the games news in the last 2-3 days. India’s hockey loss was sad, but Saina Nehwal came from a game down, and won the gold medal in Badminton. India also ended up 2nd in the games (38 Gold medals, out of the 101 medals our athletes won. Australia topped the medals tally and England came third. But while I was catching up on the day’s events, I saw a tweet from Tweet@madversity, and I knew there was a cartoon there somewhere. I know we need reality checks, but there are enough people doing that - pointing out how shitty a country we are, worrying about Kalmadi getting away, how the last 12 days have been a horrible experience for the common man – all true but it’s ok to be happy for a moment.
So here’s a happy cartoon (not the sadder, darker one I had in mind) – depicting the top 3 performing countries at the games.


And a thank you to Delhi for putting up a great show - from a Bambaiyya.

Thank You Delhi

Liu Who?

This is not a jingoistic cartoon but it's worthwhile revisiting the contrast. On one hand, the world can't stop commending the Nobel committee's decision on awarding Liu Xiaobo the Peace Prize, while I wonder how many Chinese know (or even care) about Liu Xiaobo and his battle for fundamental human rights in China.

Maybe it is none of our business to comment about what is happening in China (a booming economy and a superpower) - Liu Xiaobo is under arrest for breaking Chinese laws - but how long can we ignore a regime that continues clamping down on democracy and basic human rights that most of the world takes for granted?

Morality aside, the real matter of interest is to see how China flexes its muscles and if the Norwegians blink (there are about 200 Norwegian firms doing business in China). And how the world reacts to that. It will be a template that the rest of the world will have to fit into sooner or later. Don’t the nukes that the Soviets and Americans pointed at each other during the Cold war seem tame in comparison?

Check out last year’s Nobel peace prize cartoon.

Some people can bend the truth for their convenience, but ever wonder what happens when they actually speak the truth?
