Hope you all had a great Holi.
I had been thinking of posting a different comic for a few weeks, but after a bit of prodding by AKNYC (who blogs at Chammak Challo) I went ahead and scanned one. This is one of those amazing World War II comics that I enjoyed reading, featuring Brits (Heroes), and the Germans, Japanese who were the bad guys. Stereotypical but great stories of fighter planes, dog fights, anti-aircraft guns going ACK-ACK-ACK, tanks, soldiers fighting on beaches, in cities and in jungles, stories of espionage, courage, betrayal, defeats and victories against all odds.
So here’s the comic. Hope it rings a bell :-)
Just as I am about to post this, there’s a news flash on CNN-IBN that a “Third Front” has been formally announced to provide an alternative to the Congress and BJP. The Third Front will be formed of parties that would otherwise have supported the BJP or Congress, parties have enjoyed power without much responsibility. What do you think? Will they be able to provide good governance, handle the economic situation we are facing? Will they be able to provide stable and strong leadership?
