SATYAMeva Jayathi

Satyam saga is getting murkier.I am feeling ashamed to be called a co-andhradite / an Indian. The list of frauds done by Mr.Raju seems to be endless.

Mr B. Ramalinga Raju, had ‘taken loans’ worth Rs 1,425 crore from 40 companies owned by his family or other relatives. That is not all. Most of the companies that gave loans to Mr Raju are operating from the same address and some of them do not even exist.
This was like the left hand giving a loan to right hand

Amaravathi Greenfields, Pavitravati Greenfields, Surasa Greelands,Madeswara Greenfields, Teepa Agro, Malaprabha, Netravati, Banganga Agrofarms, Koel Agrofarms, Saravati Greenlands, Ahar Greenlands, Balaghat Greenfields, Kolar Greenlands,Atryeee Agrofarms, Dhatu Agro farms, Hakra Agrofarms, and Bahudan are the benami companies run by his brother,sons and his other family members.

2. Rs 20 crore was being diverted every month in the name of employee salaries.Satyam Computers has only 40,000 employees and not 53,000. Ten thousand employees were non-existent and 3,000 belong to attrition category. 32000 salary accounts of Satyam are in ICICI Bank that handles more than 90 per cent of Satyam’s salary payments in India. HDFC has another 2000 salary accounts. Add to this, an estimated 15000 salary accounts overseas. How did these banks opened accounts is a big question?
Satyam showed over 5200 crore rupees as its salary bill in 2007-2008.
How much of that went into Raju’s own pocket ??
That is one in four employees salary was probably being diverted elsewhere.

The company didnt pay the medical insurance premium for the employees so they wont get treatment facilities.

4. Ramalinga Raju had used the name of 400 fictitious companies to buy benami lands in the city outskirts. 3,400 acres of land were purchased.These lands had been bought up in the names of Mr Ramalinga Raju’s family members, companies and other benami identities. There were 478 acres in name of Mr Akula Rajaiah and 312 acres in names of Mr Suryanarayana Raju and Mrs Narasamma (Raju’s mom)

All these came out only when he was interrogated for one hour per day, had he been interrogated for more hrs then????

We will be hearing more in the coming days.The investigating authority has just possibly opened a can of worms, the worst is yet to come.

2min Maggi

I always wonder how maggie gets cooked in just 2 min.My microwave took 10 mins to cook maggie.I was wondering how can they show ad on TV that maggie gets cooked in just 2min.I measured the water mentioned on the pack i.e 2 cups for a packet, i took 4 cups for 2 packets.

I boiled water in microwave hi for 2min then i added maggie and emptied the curry flavour sachet and pressed microwave 100% for 2min, after 2 min when i opened the microwave (in anticipation that noddles are ready to eat and called my kids to have it) lol i saw it didnt cook at all, then i kept it for another 2min on high power, it is half cooked now.

Again i kept it for another 4min and at last it got cooked.So the maggie i cooked took 10min.
I am still wondering whether they are wrong or i did it wrong??

Cheers to Uae Govt

UAE government has made it mandatory for all residence visa holders to get a national identity card irrespective of their nationality.I got this mail from a friend of mine and i thought of sharing with you all

Happy pongal to all my blog friends

I miss the festive atmosphere back home .We used to get up early put kollam in front of the house and colour it with many colours.Take head bath, help mom in the kitchen in making pongal dishes.Visit grand mama’s house and eat her special dishes and take money from her. Evening wear new clothes and show it to the neighbours and go to the terrace and see boys flying kites.We used to be behind them to teach us, they used to say first you hold charka then we will teach, that never came (teaching part).We used to hold for so long but they never taught us.Run behind the kites on the roads and hid the kite under the bed, because my mom used to tell us not to touch the kite the manja will cut our hands.Best part was school holiday and so much to eat.I just love sweet pongal made by my mom,the very thought i am getting water in my mouth.
I really miss my childhood and wish I go back to my childhood days do all those things which i miss now, including flying a kite
