I Fire the Crew

Yup, John and Chris are gone....Indian labor is so much cheaper. Here is some of the insightful new coverage you can expect...*

Thulla in Bakery Case

Delhi police joint commissioner Kanwaljit Deol will be a member of a high-level Supreme Court panel appointed to probe the veracity of a series of charges and counter-charges made by Best Bakery case controversial witness Zahira Sheikh and social activist Teesta Setalvad. The latter was in the forefront of the litigation for having the case transferred from Gujarat to Mumbai.

Certainly we all agree that it is long past time for the veracity of these charges to be investigated, yaar. Whether they turn out to be true or not, the palour cast over the Bakery industry alone calls for a speedy resolution to this case. Although we would have preferred that the case had been transferred to Andhra Pradesh and not Mumbai, let us hope that Mumbai ultimately proves the venue where justice will be done, na?

Do you think you have what it takes to out-perform our team in Bangalore? Send in a writing sample and tell us about yourself, and you may be the next (or first?) great writer. Ideological persuasion no bar (except, of course, if you are a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party).

*Actually I didn't exactly fire the crew, and I didn't outsource the jobs to India. I think Chris and John are doing other things right now. They are of course welcome to come back (although a little-noticed provision placed in the emergency appropriations bill passed by Congress last year will make their compensation much less lucrative).
