Take lessons from Sibal -
He will teach you accounting and how to calculate loss in 2G scam equal to 0 when the loss (as per CAG) was over 1.5 L crore.

Then our PM will teach you -
why making profit from coal field allocation was not in the interest(and intention) of the government - (great economist talking about developmental economics). If Govt does not earn income - how will they spend on programs to help poor people live a dignified life. Why doesnt he waives off interest rates and taxes for individuals and corporate.

Tesla was not the only victim of Edison.Sir Joseph Swan,who invented the incandescent bulb was harassed by the law suits filed by Edison and finally gave up his claim.Edison's direct current machines failed to transmit power over a distance exceeding a mile,while Westinghouse (for whom Tesla worked)achieved success with alternating current generators.Edison tried to drive the AC machines out of market by false propaganda that AC is dangerous.(He made a public demonstration in which a puppy was subjected to an electric shock.The puppy escaped but the demonstrator got the shock of his life).
Edison was a gifted inventor,but also a ruthless,unethical fighter who steam-rollered his competetors.

The great inventor Thomas Edison along with Ni colas Tesla and Michael Faraday enlightened our lives by driving away the darkness surro unding us.They are the people,who by looking at high and mighty Niagara Falls,conceived the idea of harnessing its potential energy for its conversipon into electric energy.But Prak ash Iyer must remember that we Indians are just Academic Brains and not Creative Brains.

A Dictator to the core

A Dictator to the core and primarily responsible for not allowing NICOLA TESLA to go for AC patents and never allowed conniving with JP Morgan not to allow wireless current propagation ,because JP had already invested in distribution infra of wired-electricity.
Otherwise today world would have enjoyed lot free energy and hugely less pollution.

He is mainly responsible for all huge costs masses pay for energy to minuscule capitalists community and all the global-politics for energy.
We can easily leave how indian scientists were detested from their inventions being the original one.......remember J.C. Bose.
