Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.
This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions — that time has surely passed.
Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.
For everywhere we look, there is work to be done.
The state of our economy calls for action: bold and swift. And we will act not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth.
We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.
We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality…
… and lower its costs.
We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.
All this we can do. All this we will do.
Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose and necessity to courage.
What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them, that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long, no longer apply.
MR. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.
Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end.
And those of us who manage the public’s knowledge will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.
Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched.
But this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control. The nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous.
The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on the ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart — not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.
As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.
Our founding fathers faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations.
Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience’s sake.
Monday, October 20, 2008. A new week started today. This week looks busy from today because many task to finish in this week. New week will be diwali vacation, so we have to finish in this week. One more appreciation for my state. GSRTC was awarded by the government of India for leading in economic use of diesel.
Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) was awarded by
the Government of India for leading in economic use of diesel. During 200
5-06, GSRTC had shown an average of 4.72 km per litre.
Despite this, the corporation introduced fuel saving measures. This included proper maintenance, imparting suitable training to drivers, maintaining speed control
of vehicles. All these helped the corporation to increase average to 4.91 km per litre during 2006-07.
India State Road Transport Undertaking and Ministry of Road Transport & Highway, Government of India, found GSRTC one of the leading transportation corporations in the country for minimizing their average fuel consumption.
“The corporation took care to use the spare parts of only standard companies in the ST buses. This helped to decrease the breakdown from 1.30 during 2005-06 to 0.88 during 2006-07 per 10,000 km. The utility range per vehicle during 2006-07 per day increased to 376.55 km, which was a record,” says transport commissioner GS Aloria.
The award was given by the president of All India State Road Transport Undertaking to Gujarat ST Nigam in New Delhi recently.

I am reading my blogs and also comments on my blog. I find one comment from one of my reader who asks me what is the status of that Surrogate baby who belong to japans parents. I try to find out the status of that baby and found that The Japanese government has indicated they will allow her entry if requested. The news I found on web is below.
A baby stuck in India in legal limbo after being born to an Indian surrogate mother for a now-divorced Japanese couple will be allowed to leave for Japan.
The Indian government said Monday it will issue a special travel document for the baby, who is stateless and not eligible for a passport.
The Japanese government has indicated it will allow her entry if requested.
The child was born July 25. A Japanese man in his 40s arranged the birth using an egg from an anonymous donor via a fertility clinic in western India. Legal problems arose when the man got divorced before the baby’s birth.
The biological father intends to raise the girl in Japan, according to sources.(IHT/Asahi: September 17,2008)
Good Evening Friends, I just got this shocking new “Serial blasts rock Delhi; 18 dead”.I got this news at 8-00 pm,, more updates will be there and more causalities and more injured will be there. News is as under.
Five explosions rocked three crowded markets in Delhi on Saturday evening, leaving at least 18 people dead.
The blasts at Ghaffar market in Karol Bagh, Connaught Place and Greater Kailash (M-block) took place in a quick succession, police said.
The first blast took place at Ghaffar market in which at least 20 people were injured. They were rushed to nearby RML Hospital.
Immediately after that, two explosions took place in Connaught Place in which at least 10 people were injured.
Another explosion rocked M-Block market in Greater Kailash-I.
The impact of the blasts in Karol Bagh could be gauged by the fact that an auto was thrown up and got caught in the electrical wires.
Senior Police officials including Joint Commissioner of Police Karnail Singh rushed to the spot in the central district and were assessing the situation.
