Palin – Fey! You have to see it.

Tina Fey is hilarious as Palin, Sarah Palin being the vice presidential candidate on the republican side. It is hard to pull a Hillary. The idea of having Palin on the ticket was, I am assuming driven a lot by the idea of having someone to attract the disgruntled Hillary supporters. But the Republican campaign is actually insulting Hillary supporters by having Palin on the ticket. The contrast between the two is amazing. Here is a woman who is a lawyer in her own right, steeped in politics and the ins and outs of Washington, willing to stand up and fight without backing down and is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. Just the idea that Palin could take over the reigns is appalling in some sense. I mean, what were they trying to convey – that all women could be equated at some level, that any woman would do to bring the voters back, I don’t know. All I know is that the late night shows are having a good time. If you want to see the resemblance, check her out here.


Random Thoughts

Coming back to any place where there is no family sucks…more so if the said family is 18000 miles away.

Homesickness is not something you get over. It lingers just beneath all the other feelings, like a faithful friend reminding you that there is always another place where there were happier times.

I am now teaching. Adjunct professor for Politics

People including my students and another professor thought I was a student and looked like they were going to scream with laughter when I said I am teaching…Good thing I control the grades 😀

Chalks are good….Markers bad. Not easy to hit students with, given the fact that there in one marker which is mine in each class.

I have a new found respect for professors who work and disgust for people who passed us up to another year in college..

It is almost winter again.

I am rediscovering all things Indian. YEY!!!

I was a little taken aback when they played the Indian National Anthem before the movie in a theater in Bombay…

It is not the same anthem. I am not sure What to think about it. I like it, but what was wrong with the previous one!!!
