What the Wuck Facts


Here's presenting some insanely insane What the Wuck Facts:

Fact #1. India is the world's largest democracy, with 1.2 billion people. (Know how many 0's that is ?)

Fact #2. 100 million people visit the Kumbh Mela (which happens every 12 years). The world's biggest gathering of humans.  (Again: How many 0's ?)

Fact #3. A man claims he hasn't eaten or drunk anything for 70 years. Doctors still don't know how that's possible.     (My theory  : He hasn't  lived in the age of junk food.)

Fact #4. Breathing the air for one day in Mumbai is equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes. ( Woaah ....I'm at a loss for words)

Fact #5. We have the world's biggest family ! 1 man, 39 wives. 94 children. (I doubt that man has a TV. His family hasn't been touched by the evil daily soaps)



Fact #6. A man married a dog as an atonement for his sins. (I'm never letting that happen to me. There are hell of a lot of guys out here. You know like 800 girls for every 1000 boys)

Fact #7. Police officers in one state in India are given a pay hike if they have moustaches.  (I didn't know my college boys were planning to be Inspectors. *lol* )

Fact #8. There are more mobile phones here than toilets. (I'll believe that. With Modi Sarkaar stressing on going cashless (entry of Paytm), everyone is more concerned about what's going in than what's coming out. *I know that's gross*)

Fact #9. Children's day is celebrated exactly 9 months after Valentine's Day in India. (Now that's what I call having access to general knowledge)

Fact #10. 70% spices in the world comes from India. ( Ever met a teekhi mirchi ? *wink wink* )

Fact #11. In India, a polling station is set up in a forest for a lone voter in every election since 2004. (Now this makes me believe Human Rights originated in India)

Fact #12. India has more population than the entire Western Hemisphere on Earth. (Woaah...I'm speechless right now.)

Fact #13. Now this is for all the couples.There is a vigilante group in India known as the "Love Commandos" who protect people who fall in love from different castes from harassment. (Fall in love? Settle in India)

Fact #14. The airline "Go Air" hires only female flight attendants because they are lighter. Proof: The airline saves upto US $500,000 every year on fuel.   (Boys, need I recommend which airline to use?) *hehe*

Fact #15. Indian housewives hold 11% of the world's gold. This is the combined reserves of US, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany put together. (NEVER cry that you are poor)

So much did you score ? Go up and rate yourselves.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
