Race row: Aussie cops joke about Indian’s electrocution

MEA Summons Oz Envoy To Protest Bias Against Indians

TIMES NEWS NETWORK By Jimmy.D G special report from Delhi

New Delhi: After a New Zealand TV anchor rattled Indians earlier this week, the attention is now back to Australia. A day after the Australian media reported that two policemen in Victoria exchanged emails that were racially offensive to Indians, the foreign office issued yet another strongly worded protest.

Australian high commissioner Peter Varghese was called in to the MEA on Saturday and a demarche issued to him. MEA spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said, “It was conveyed to him that such an entrenched bias among sections of law enforcers towards the Indian community is a matter of serious concern. Such behaviour had no place in any society.”

He added, “It was hoped that the Australian authorities would take necessary measures to address concerns regarding the safety of people of Indian origin.”

Varghese himself said he was disgusted by the reports. “It was contrary to the principles of respect and tolerance, which underpinned Australian society,” Varghese said.

The commissioner of police, Victoria, Simon Overland, was reported as saying that the two individuals had resigned and that strong disciplinary action would be taken against them. Overland said, “The Victoria police are incredibly disappointed with the actions of these two individuals, following all the positive work being undertaken with the Indian community.’’

The emails, reported in an Australian newspaper, shows video footage of a man being killed after touching overhead wires while standing on top of a crowded train in India. According to the media report, one of the alleged comments added to the email was: “This might be a way to fix the Indian student problem.’’

Over the past year, Indian students have been the target of a number of attacks in Australia, particularly Victoria. Some of them were believed to be racially motivated. However, this had a disastrous effect on Australia's education industry.

An Englishman Vest and an Indian are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The Englishman is thinking that Indians are so dumb that he could get one over on them easy.

So the Englishman asks if the Indian would like to play a fun game.

The Indian is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The Englishman persists saying that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says.
This catches the Indian's attention and to keep the English quiet, he agrees to play the game.

The Englishman asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?'

The Indian doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the Englishman.

Now it's the Indian's turn. He asks, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'

The Englishman uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net.

He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up.

He wakes the Indian and hands him $500. The Indian pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

Vest is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Indian up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'

Saby reaches into his pocket, hands the Englishman $5 and goes back to sleep.

Here is what I think is the answer to Chiefy's Question.

King John signs Magna Carta at Runnymede in the year 1215.

Prime Minister or 'P M'.

England Expects Etc is the flag signal hoisted on the orders of Admiral Horatio Nelson before the Battle of Trafalgar. Monday Oct 21st 1805.

Answer is:
1215 PM Monday, 21st Oct, 1805.

Monday is correct too.

Jimmy said...

The rule of law has its basis in Magna Carta. This concept, fundamental to democratic forms of government, asserts that all – including a king, prime minister, or president – must abide by the laws of the nation.

While Magna Carta does not specifically state that the king is subject to the rule of law, the provisions of this document establish that principle by imposing limits on the king’s power.


The Magna Carta is not a carefully crafted constitution, or framework of government, like the U.S. Constitution.

Jimmy said...

u bloody british

u ruled us for 200 years dont mean I shud know British history

Jimmy said...

The Magna Carta
JOHN, by the grace of God King of England, Lord of Ireland, Duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, and Count of Anjou, to his archbishops, bishops, abbots, earls, barons, justices, foresters, sheriffs, stewards, servants, and to all his officials and loyal subjects, Greeting.


KNOW THAT BEFORE GOD, for the health of our soul and those of our ancestors and heirs, to the honour of God, the exaltation of the holy Church, and the better ordering of our kingdom, at the advice of our reverend fathers Stephen, archbishop of Canterbury,

Wally`s wife goes to India to attend a two-week, company training session.

Wally Banta drives her to the airport and wishes her to have a good trip.

"Thank you honey, what would you like me to bring for you?"


Wally laughs and says, "An Indian girl !!!



Two weeks later Wally picks her up in the airport and asks, "So, honey, how was the trip?"
"Very good, thank you."


"And, what happened to my present?"
"Which present?"


"What I asked for, the Indian girl?!"


Oh, that! Well, I did what I could, now we have to wait a few months to see if its a girl !!!

Why I prefer OLDER women



Older women often have a clearer sense of who they are and what they want.

Consequently, they’re less timid when it comes to men
and they’re also less inclined to play games.

While a woman in her early 20s might waste your time playing hard to get, or trying to make you jealous, a woman even five or 10 years older is more likely to cut to the chase and be upfront about her feelings or lack thereof.

That kind of forthrightness is refreshing; it can even be a turn-on.
And it’s another one of the top 10 things we love about older women.

Jimmy said...

- Older women offer good conversation

There’s nothing like going out on a date and having a 45-minute conversation about Spiedi, followed by a scintillating story about how your date was going to buy this one purse,
but instead she didn’t and got this other purse instead.

A good conversation is one of those things we tend to take for granted
until we haven’t had one in a while.

Great conversation skills are something that younger women often lack,
not so much because they’re women,
but mostly because they’re young. Quite simply, older women have lived longer.

They’ve seen things, done things and been places.

They have more interesting stories and more experience,
and that makes them better conversationalists.

Don’t underestimate the importance of talking;
it will keep a relationship interesting long after the spark of the initial attraction has faded.

Jimmy said...

- Older women have more sexual experience

Perhaps the most common reason men cite for wanting to date older women is superior sex. Older women are better in bed. Period.

They’ve gotten over all the little insecurities and anxieties that can negatively impact your sex life.

Older women are comfortable in their own skin. Moreover, they know how to make the bedroom exciting and interesting.

They’ve graduated beyond the bedroom basics and their experience often makes them more willing to try new things.


- Older women value your time together

Equipped with a clear sense of what’s really important in life,
older women are more appreciative of the time you spend together and they aren’t likely to be reckless with your emotions.

That’s the thing we love most about older women.

While younger women often don’t take men, relationships or life in general very seriously, an older woman understands the value of a good man.

She’s seen what’s out there, she knows what’s at stake and she’s not likely to take you for granted.

When it comes to these women, we don't really care how old they are.
