Back after a hiatus

I was in Kolkata and Jamshedpur over the last 6 days. Had originally gone there to attend our alumni homecoming which was canceled due to a tragic event. However, my relatives are in both the cities so utilized the time to meet them.

Kolkata still can't seem to shake off its Marxist identity. One day was the huge leftist rally which was called to protest the Saddam hanging ! Of course, everyone conveniently forgot that Saddam was a Communist killer in his time and had banned the Communist Party of Iraq !

Then there were news that unions were being formed in the state's fast growing IT sector, but there is news that it's actually devoid of IT professionals !
