It's the law of the land
Reminds me of the time when the Norwegians took the Indian kid into custody from their Indian parents.
One of the reasons given was - because the kid was being fed by hand and not with cutlery

I think they had no intention of robbing. They simply wanted to stamp onions with MRP.

Each one, i expect.

Also, milk trucks are being hijacked, so much so that transporters are fearing for their lives.

It seems this is no longer a weird story, but is in the first page of newspapers. But for the records I am putting it under weird news.

Sadhu dreams of a 1000 tonne gold treasure and Archaeological Survey of India starts excavation.

The UP gold rush: here and here.

Some think that ASI did the right thing in starting the excavation under police protection as that would at least prevent a gold-rush; people rushing to the historical site and destroying it by the ensuing digging chaos. Some comments on this are here

Of course each one. In eight locations, including the two polar regions. You know how it is with onions. MRP can easily peel of.

What do they do with the ilk? You can't put MRP on it?

I suppose if they sold it at half the going price, it won;t take them lon gto sell it.

I read the Financial Express article. The author seems to be as clueless as the Minister. How sad that professionals can ordered around by an ill-educated minister. The author doesn't seem to know the difference between gold and gold deposits. If the gold belonged to Raja Rao Ram Bux Singh, it can;t be described as gold deposits. People rushing t the site to steal gold would be vandals, looters or gold diggers. That's no gold rush. Why inform Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi?

It reminds me of excitement in Pakistan when someone claimed to have invented an engine that ran on water.

Mining and digging wealth out of India has been a hobby of the politicians for quite some time now.

That's a lot of gold. Nearly twice India's gold reserves. It represents 180% of India's reserves nearly tripling India's gold reserves. It's not enought to India's debt off (It's only 10% of India's external debt) , but it can improve India's sovereign debt rating, or India's credit rating. Since it has the potential to save billions of dollars in interest payments on external debt, it would be significant if true. The funny thing is politicians want to steal gold that is even there. My point is that it's stupid to give any credence to the dream. If there is gold, the real story is something else, the amount a lot smaller, and the information comes from a source other than a dream. I doubt there is any.

If the govt has a legal policy acquiring hidden gold, it can be done at the
administrative level. No need for Ministers, or an M.P. or two or a chairman of a party to get involved. THey have no standing in the government.

The gold either belongs to the owner of the land, or to an heir of the original owner of the gold. There is not need for people to rush for that gold. If they do, they are a bunch of thieves, not worse in politicians.

Gee Dave, what are you reading nowadays ?


Now for enlightenment - for all ye sinners...
She's published yet anudder book... 'War on Christmas'.

In a promotion for the book - this is what missy sayz

Quote:
"When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

"Jesus would gather all the townspeople around and would listen to their stories about the meaning of Easter in their lives. Then he would teach them how to love one another, how to protest Roman abortion clinics and how to properly convert homosexuals.

nah nah - dont check who is 'she'. You got just ONE guess!

Absurd. Flabbergasted. Merde! ... she actually gets publishers
