While Aam Admi like you and I were scratching our heads wondering, how foolish the Government thinks we are, our hero, our savior, our Rahul Baba came out of the poster … Continue reading Rahul Baba’s Ordinance NONSENSE!

An outpouring of nationalistic sentiment, on twitter-feed on September 16th morning, read something like this: Clearly, there was some confusion about Ms. Nina Davuluri’s heritage, some called her Arab, some called her Al Qaeda, some called her an Indian and some a terrorist.

S. Hussain Zaidi is no writer – he is an accomplished crime journalist and has a vast knowledge of Mumbai underworld – but he is no writer. And this book further proves this argument why crime journalist should never try to be a writer when he does not have enough content for the book.
