Advani’s Regret letter to Sonia

With respect to letter from Sonia Gandhi L.K. Advani’s reply letter

18 Feb 2011 


From Our Delhi Bureau

NEW DELHI: Even as veteran Lal Krishna Advani’s regret letter to Sonia Gandhi

created a sort of crisis in the BJP, he got released the letter through the party
headquarters to put it in right perspective.

Here is text of the letter dated February 16:

“Dear Smt Sonia ji,

On my return from Kolkata last night, I found your letter dated 15th February awaiting me.

I am happy that you have denied the reports relating to you and your family

alluded to in the Task Force’s Report on Black Money. 

If these had been denied earlier, the Task Force would have taken your denial

into account. Even so, I deeply regret the distress caused to you.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

L K Advani.”


Verbatim letter of Sonia Gandhi to LK Advani on Blackmoney


Dear Shri Advaniji,

My attention has been drawn to a publication titled ‘Indian Black Money Abroad
in Secret Banks and Tax Havens’ purporting to be a report submitted by a Task
Force appointed by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

This so-called report contains reckless and baseless allegations against me and my
family, including my late husband and my mother. These lies, energetically
disseminated from time to time by sections of the media and interested
parties have so far been treated by me with the contempt they deserve.

But I must let you know that I am surprised and disappointed to find a leader of
your stature occupying important positions in the NDA and the BJP endorsing
such scurrilous and malicious fabrications through their release at a function
presided over by you.

Yours sincerely,

Sd. Sonia Gandhi

Google insight vs Yahoo clues

Both  Google Insight and Yahoo Clue is for SEO purpose.

Google Insight is a search database that can filter on search terms like location, time, and category and give you a graphical representation such as interest over time of search volume, top search terms, and related. It is a product similar to Google Trends that will enable you to examine a certain niche in detail.

It will help you decide which advertising method works best or find out when people are searching seasonal items — the site gives ski resorts as an example.

It can also tell you how competing brands or locations are doing and what markets may be developing for your product or service.


Google Insight data


Yahoo! Clues is a new beta service that gives you a unique “behind the scenes” look into popular trends across the millions of people who use Yahoo! to search each day.

With Yahoo! Clues, you can discover and compare trending information for search terms of interest to you, or explore popular trending search terms on Yahoo!

You can see search volume charts, demographic graphs, maps, or even related searches specific to a demographic group. We’re also experimenting with an interesting feature called “Search Flow,” which offers a unique look at people’s search patterns and the next most probable search term people try after searching for a query.

Last Update: 16:00 IST Advantages and disadvantages

Nowadays most of us eager to use google’s url shortening service including me. Previously I have used In terms of usability and uptime speed it is fine but they have missed some features.

I have listed some features, is anything missing please add it in comments

1. Duplicate links
If i’m creating short link for same url more than one time it results different short url for a same page/url
2. Can’t remove from listing displays the list of short urls we have created, But there is no option to delete/remove/hide from listing.
3. No option to create Custom url
It will be nice if they give option to create custom short link then they can share are remember easily.
4. Missing API for create short URL
Currently they don’t have option to create short urls through API. In this case I prefer . I think they will have API support soon


1. No need to have separate login account
We can use the same google account
2. Click count
We can view click count by location, OS, browser, timing, referral url.
3. QR code
A QR Code is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR Barcode reader and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.
