Donating to Indian political parties through 80G

Communist party MLAs and MPs should share their salary (that they receive from government) with their party workers--Gnani once wrote about it. Ever since I've read that, I was looking for a website where we can donate to political parties. Recently I came to know that the Indian tax law 80G allows 100% rebate for donation to political party. I'm not sure, how many people are aware of it.

Crooked power cut for Koodankulam?

Chennai has now official 2-hours power cut per day. People from southern cities say that they have unofficial power cut--not less than 8-hours per day. Everybody says that it is worst in the history, especially when people voted against to DMK for its just [sic] 2-hours official power cut per day. Some people say that there is no need for power cut now and it's a crooked measure to get people's support against to Koodankulam agitators. More specifically, when people of Coimbatore started supporting the Anti-Koodankulam protesters, the power cut rose up from 4-hours to 10-hours. Long live politics!

Puthiya Thalaimurai group losing neutrality & respect?

Like I mentioned earlier, I'm one of the early life subscriber of Puthiya Thalaimurai magazine and I have recommended it to many people. But, these days, the contents are losing neutrality and becoming terrible from terrific--especially on Koodankulam issue. The contents are absolutely crooked and insane. It is better to write anything direct than in sneaky neutral tone. I can guess few reasons for the changes:

It tries to be just "different" to reach cosmopolitan & TwitterGen [sic] crowdIt tries to milk "brand Abdul Kalam". But, visit Anna University and talk to some people to understand how he climbed up faster or read old critic by his classmate writer Sujatha.It is under pressure from central and state government. 
But, I wish the real reason be just an error and Puthiya Thalaimurai magazine and TV will get back respect.

Dr. Jayabarathan responds to Anti-Koodankulam critic

Retired nuclear engineer Dr. S. Jayabarathan (B.E. (Hons), P.Eng. [Nuclear] Canada, born February 21, 1934) kindly replied for the Anti-Koodankulam critic by John Rupert, which I noted as best critic. Since the formatting in comments section is not good for reading, I have formatted them into a new post. I’ll write about the real questions and real concerns in few days time.

1. மீன்பிடித் தொழிலால் கூடங்குளம் பகுதியில் இருந்து ஆண்டொன்றிற்கு அரசுக்கு 2000 கோடி ரூபாய் வருவாய் கிடைக்கிறது. இதை எல்லம் அணுவுலை அமைந்தால் எந்தா நாட்டிற்கும் நம்மால் மீன் ஏற்றுமதி செய்ய இயலாது. இந்த இழப்பு உங்கள் கண்ணிற்கு தெரியாதது ஏனோ? கல்பாக்கத்தில் பணி புரியும் பொறியியல் வல்லுனர்கள் அங்கு கிடைக்கும் மீன்களை வாங்குவதில்லை என்பது உஙளுக்குத் தெரியும் என எண்ணுகிறேன்.

ஜப்பான் தேசத்தில் இயங்கும் 54 அணுமின் உலைகள் கடற்கரையில்தான் அமைந்துள்ளன. கனடாவில் 20 அணுமின் உலைகள் சுவைநீர் ஏரிகளில் உள்ளன. உலகில் பல நாடுகளில் அணு உலைகள் நதிக் கரையில் கட்டப் பட்டுள்ளன. அங்கே வாழ்வோர் மீன் பிடிக்கிறார், விற்கிறார், தின்கிறார்.
