Inflation, Crude Oil Price - Soars High

.
Jun 15, 2008

One of the Hot topic that every one needs to get a solution is Inflation, Inflation is worrying one currently threats world wide and mostly in ASIA, especially in INDIA.

We can explain it by 2 ways. 1. Cost Push Inflation, 2. Inflations due to Increase in Oil Prices. These are the Major threat in ASIA, where this mostly affects the last people of the country.

All this is happening due to FUEL Price Hike under one thought “Demand Increases and so the Price”. But some analysts Says it is due to the Speculators who leads in Market..

Today(June 15, 2008) in India the Inflation rises to 8.75% which is a 7 year High, The inflation rate is now at its highest since February 2001 and well above the government's target of between 5% and 5.5%. Transportation matters in all concern: Transportation Indirectly Increases the Price Hike, due to the increase in fuel prices, transportation sectors are forced to increase their Transportation charges which in turn increases consumer goods and all the other prices,

Analyst Fear that Inflation will increase upto 9% which is 13 year high.

The sudden jerk is due to increase in Fuel Price, but It can’t be affordable even for some Oil Delivering Companies in India, because they already in their loss, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) One of the biggest in the nation suffered a loss of Rs. 414.27 Crore INR which is equal to $96.6574764 Million US Dollars.

Not only this there are several reasons for crude oil price hike..

1. Increased global demand. Countries with huge populations like China and India shows a rapid growth in its economy leads the people to trade

liberally all over the nation, so the demand is very high.. (Whenever if the demand for a product goes high, it ultimately increases the products cost)

2. Production has decreased. In france and other countries the demand is due to some other reasons and in UK it is due to 50% of tax. which is called as windfall taxes.. this windfall taxes is due to some environment concerns.

3. Due to Speculators. For their future concern the speculators bid for oil expecting the price to go higher, they just expect that could create demand rise and production decrease by doing so, due to this price is hiked.

4. All trade is being done using USD and so it also depends on the dollar value, for the past US mortgage crisis, it affects a lot if dollar is too weak then it buys less oil, so prices per barrel rises..

it also depends on some countries bad economic Policies..

International crude prices topping 135 dollars a barrel. In india The three firms are currently losing Rs 450 crore in revenues on fuel sales every day. Petrol is being sold at a loss of Rs 16.34 ($0.38) a litre, diesel at Rs 23.49($0.54) per litre, LPG at Rs 305.90($7.137) per cylinder loss and kerosene at a discount of Rs 28.72 ($0.66)per litre.

Perhaps 60% of Crude Oil pice is purely a speculation



Energy costs make up 14.2% of the inflation index. In addition to fuel and food price rises, some analysts have forecast that transport and feedstock costs will rise within the next two to three months.

In India the percentage of cost push inflation is some what low, but after increasing in Crude Oil Price it too gets it own way to the peak.

We just discussed the Inflation in Oil Price Hike trend, but there are also inflationary action is going on in Oil wealthy countries like Saudi Arabia too.

What is the solution to this threat, some analyst also warned that it is harder to reduce the Inflation.

But the conclusion is a big speculation and demand alone...

It is like all the nation will suffer a big loss without any war. Government must change its economic policy which never affects the Rupee and Dollar value at any cost, it is the vital role for the Government, else every one in the Future then advised to practice for their Stone Age.

Comments are most welcome for the factor to reduce Inflation.

Dasavatharam Kamal | Dasavatharam Movie | Dasavatharam 10 Avatar - Review

.
Jun 13, 2008

Dasavatharam 10 Avatar
Dasavatharam (தசாவதாரம )the Movie released with a big brand market, released over 21 theatres, in chennai and its surroundings at first day 135 shows has been made, In other states also it has been released, but kamal did a careful notice here, that sivaji didn’t screened with sub-titles in other states, but in other states dasavatharam released with sub titles, Hindi dubbed version will be released soon .


The 10 Avatars of Kamal in Dasavatharam

1.Brahmin: Rangarajan Nambi

2. Scientist: Govind

3. Former CIA officer: Keith Fletcher

4. An Old Lady: Krishnaveni Paati

5. Fighter: Chinese Martial Arts Teacher

6. Tall Muslim: Kalifullah Khan

7. Telug RAW Police Officer: Balram Naidu

8. Dalit Activist: Vincent Poovarahan

9. Pop Singer: Punjab Pop Singer (Avtar)

10. American President: George William Bush

The Story:

Avatar No: 1 The Story Starts with the first avatar Rangaraj Nambi with an incident taking place during chozha dynasty, and this first avatar of kamal then immersed into water. This avatar is questionable one, after this useless avatar story moves into avatar 2.

Avatar No: 2 Govind a Scientist who discovered a BIO weapon which destroy even a country but he then realized and want to demolish it, but some of US Govt people and other not liking this. So he ran away from the lab with Weapon but he was followed by a former CIA officer Keith Fletcher Avatar No: 3 who is supposed to be a villan, to destroy other countries.

By mistake the weapon is couriered wrongly to an Indian address where paati kamal lives.

In India Balram Naidu a CID Officer (Avatar No:4) who is supposed to be a humorous person take a pursuit of caching the thief fletcher & co. who escapes from airport with Govind at Gun Point. Then Both of them fight themselves in Search of the Courier address to chidambaram where Krishnaveni Paati(Avatar No:5) Live

So Govind follow up with that address and he then followed by Fletcher and Malika a language translator. Without knowing the serious of the weapon krishnaveni paati put it into a Vishnu statue..Malika will then died in a pursuit of the Statue with Goivind Kamal.

After a long chase the introduction of other Avatars pursuing the weapon are then introduced. A Japan martial arts teacher (Avatar No.6) thirsting to take revenge on Fletcher, but actually he was thought wrong about Govind was murderer of his sister. Vincent Poovarahan (Avatar No.7) a Dalit activist is a Man who makes all to Cry at the climax, a tall Muslim Khalifullah Khan (Avatar No. 8) and a Punjabi pop singer Avatar Singh (Avatar No. 9), George W Bush (Avatar No.10) are included in the long chase till the Tsunami grabs the Weapon…

In the Climax Fletcher grabbed the Bio weapon from Govind in this situation Japan Kamal (Avatar No.6) realizes that his sister was killed by Fletcher and do a fight with Fletcher, he broke his hand and leg, but Fletcher eats the Bio Weapon which will then spread into air will destroy the country, above all they need Nacl ( Sodium chloride) is a solvent which compress the emission of the Toxic which comes from the Fletcher who eats the weapon, Suddenly Tsunami Arises, this scene is developed supebly which depicts a real tsunami, so Sea water which has Salty nature has abundant Nacl saves the life .

Kamal in the climax made a questionable questions as he was an Athiest.

Sweet Asin too played a good role here with Childish Maami Character.. So Sweet....

Kamal Hasan dream comes true, with the great brand name audio cd had launched with the participation of Tamil Nadu CM Mr. M. Karunanidhi and the Hollywood Super Stunt Hero Jackie Chan.

If Jackie Chan will never get amazed on seeing this movie, because dasavatharam is an Indian style movie, but Jackie Chan movies are world standard with a big story with big realities, Hats off to Kamal he is showing a best thing an Indian can do for his people… Yeah he is showing somewhat different to the Indian Cinema, that’s his speech sounds vibral…

Kamal wants to keep an eye on make up... Atleast in the Next Film we will see the singing Skins.. because his make up allows him to move only his mouth.. he unable to do any expressions with his face, it hides a good actor's face expression inside... Hope kamal will do immense care in his make up in his forthcoming film..
