Isn't this scary for anyone who is going online ?

This article caught my attention on the 14, Jan, 2008's Times Of India, Hyderabad Edition newspaper.

First of all let us go into why was he put in jail and this excerpt clearly tells us why.

" Lakshmana had been falsely accused of an Internet crime—posting unseemly pictures of Chattrapati Shivaji on the web—and was arrested on the basis of an IP address (Internet connection number) supplied to the police by his Internet provider, Bharti. As it turned out, the IP address was not his, but by the time the police confirmed this and acted on it, he had already spent 50 harrowing days in Yerwada Jail with hardened criminals, lathi beatings, and a bowl which he had to eat out of and use in the toilet as well. "

Then the article goes on to talk about how his experience was in jail and to put it in one word "harrowing".

" Lakshmana says he was stripped in front of other inmates, including women officials, beaten with lathis and told to pluck grass from patches soiled with human waste. There were three toilets for 400 inmates with an average waiting time of 30 minutes—if a person took more than a few minutes inside, the other prisoners would throw stones or open the toilet and abuse him. The food was inedible and sleeping impossible with “blood-sucking bugs, snoring inmates and a dormitory fully lit through the night’’. He had to sleep on the floor and by way of bedding was given “two badly used, soiled, unwashed bed sheets’’. Contaminated water aggravated Lakshmana’s health problems, especially his kidney-stone problem. "

Isn't this scary ? Anyone of us at anytime can become a victim. All that needs to happen is that your ISP has to give your ISP for any police investigation and thats it. Let us lend our support to Lakshmana in what ever way we can since anyone of us can become a victim of this same law as long as we are online.

View Larger Map In this post I will try and update the list of cricket grounds that i know in Hyderabad. The grounds that I have listed till now are MCH Play ground, Ameerpet Francis (Do not have the contact number but go to the ground and ask for him). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They do not charge for anything more. You get the ground from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM. The ground is small. Welfare Center, Sanath Nagar Dhanraj Babu (+91 9394556356). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They charge you an additional Rs. 500 for the mat and Rs. 100 for cleaning and drawing lines and stuff.

So what happened th

Problogger guest post

Today my guest post appeared on . I wrote about 9 Tips to Start Blogging Successfully . Let me give you a bit of a background about where this article originated from. I have been blogging for close to 3 years now but I have been doing it seriously only for the last 2 months. I then analysed what were the things that I should have done in order to have become a successful blogger based on what I have noticed on the ones that have become successful.

A little more than a week ago Darren invited bloggers to do guest pos
