Today, from the desk of...

Apparently Basil Traore considers me to be very trustworty. Boy, am I thankful that atleast someone in Burkina Faso thinks that way. Now, do people in Burkina Faso also get this fellow's emails? If so, they should be able to kick some ass. For us, its just the entertainment. How many more million versions of this are we going to receive?


Dear Friend,
I am BASIL TRAORE the Chairman of Contract Awarding Committee of the EUROPEAN UNION CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT(EUCC) in BURKINA FASO West Africa.I got your information in a business directory from the Burkina Faso Chamber of Commerce and industries, when I was searching for a reliable, honest and trust worthy person to entrust this business to. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick your contact from the directory. After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were satisfy and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship.

We wish to transfer the sum of USD$5.800,000.00 (five million eight
hundred United States Dollars only.) into your personal or company's bank
account.This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by
us for the supply of equipments, hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/medical items
relating to constructing tool's, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and
other administrative logistics etc. for the Burkina Faso Projects. This DEAL
was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with all the visible
loop holes and sealed off. As the Chairman of CAC, I have the cooperation
and mandate of the Financial Director and the Secretary of theOrganisation.

We arranged over invoice of the contract funds, supplies by different companies from different countries. It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out of Burkina Faso.

This is borne out of our belief in the non-stable and porous political nature of this sub-region.The original contractors have been duly paid by the Bank of Africa Ouagadougou-Burkina-Faso in West Africa. (Bank of Africa, Ouaga-Burkina-Faso in West Africa). Through our bankers - Societe Generale de Banque. This balance is suspended in the escrow accounts awaiting claims by any foreign company of our choice. We intend to pay out this fund NOW as the organization is winding up its activities and the coast have been achieved.

Based on the laws and ethics of employment, we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to operate a foreign account. This is the more reason why we needed your assistance to provide an account that can sustain this funds for safe keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive advise, assistance and partnership in your country.It is however agreed, as the account owner in this deal to allow you 30% of the entire sum as compensation, 60% will be held on trust for us while 10% will be used to defray any incidental charges and expenses during the transaction. This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days
if you accord us your unalloyed and due cooperation. You are required to
provide the followings;



Upon the receipt of this information, the documents and approval with the text will be sent to you for confirmation and then forwarded to the organization for rectification and subsequent payment. As with the case of all organized (sensitive) and conspired DEALS, we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this business. We hope to retire peacefully and have a honorable business life after all. There is no risk involve in this business. I suggest you reply me back for more intimacy and details. You can reply through my alternative email as follows;
Yours Faithfully,
Mr. Basil Traore.

Ha ha ha... Moral uprightness or relentless self -mockery? Where is Tamil Nadu going?

One only needs to go online, look up news from TN and start laughing, rolling on the floor!!!!

Let's see, we first have a director who was not allowed to call actors "prostitutes" or something close to that. Otherwise, they threatened that they would stop making the bad movies no one wants to see anyway. :p

Then we have people who disallow Kushbu (who disavowed the above mentioned director's freedom) from commenting on pre - marital sex.

Then we have "Jayalakshmi", the true Godmother of all con artists.

And all you have to do is go back to sleep, get up and pick up a copy of Dinamalar, and there you go, you have more entertainment (

Ha ha ha. At this rate, God knows what we will read tomorrow morning. It is truly the cutting edge of societal entertainment. The state is in a downward spiral anyway, and if you add all these mock sensations of uprightness and set aside the rule of law, we are presented with what can only be called riotous humor!!!

So far they have also come up with dress codes and cell phone bans. When I left the college I studied in, they brought a megalomaniac to run the institution and he banned boys and girls from talking to each other - almost literally.

You know the best thing, people stand by such nonsense! Maybe its time to herald the era of "Shiv Sena" in TN. We can go around smashing up all the hotels we dislike and do all kinds of moral policing. This is so much fun. Moreover, the press will like us, political parties will like us and the courts wont punish us.

If this isn't Rama Rajya, what else is? :D

Ha ha ha. Another Nigeria Email

Dear Yamanoor Srihari

I have access to some legal and confidential information concerning a late Mr. Lester Srihari a resident investor here who recently passed away and i am presently working with the security company as their accredited attorney so i contacted you because your name and my client surename matched seems his son who is the next of kin to his legacy was al so died with in automile accident. I handled some legal briefs for him concerning a deposit of valuables and cash he made with a deposit company here. Owing to the demise of my client and by virtue of my relationship with him, I have decided to use all the resources within my power to retrieve the deposit, since my client died intestate . Until this time I, the solicitors, have been trying to determine the  whereabouts of any of the relatives who will assume the responsibility of safe guarding the estate of the deceased.

I have contacted you to
assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client because If a relative is not found within six weeks then the Public Trustee will seize the entire estate of my late client, a substantial windfall for both the government and the deposit company.

I look forward to your cooperation and your extreme discretion in this matter.  Until such time as this matter is settled, I will continue to work with you to see that the deposit is retrieved and forwarded in your name as a bona fide proxy to my late client. We shall within the course of the next few days plan and execute how best to pursue this mutual! matter with a view to cost effectiveness, I have all the necessary legal documents that will be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of law. Please get in touch with me by email to enable us discuss further.

Remember that OS company that everyone hates?

That's how they started...they wanted to be everything for everyone. Its like my blog is also becoming a google blog. Whatever it is, it amuses me to see google trying to do all these things. They will be fairly successful in evertyhing they try, but what is the point? One wonders if they too would become too large one day and people will hate them as well. How does a company stop that from happening? After all people were mesmerized by MS till 1995.
