The website is much more sane now...

More time has passed now and the domain www.bhopal.com has now become politically correct. No more crazy antics and stupid tricks from that site. However, nobody related to the Bhopal Gas tragedy should be holding the domain www.bhopal.com. Hopefully some legal firm takes the appropriate action soon.

Union Carbide gesture to Bhopal: Continued....

The contents of the website have now been modified to indicate that the Government of Madhya Pradesh owns that site. I am not sure why the Government of Madhya Pradesh has text explaining everything about Union Carbide and nothing about the people of Bhopal. Plus it says "Copyright Union Carbide 2000 - 2006". Not sure why the Government of Madhya Pradesh would allow Union Carbide to alter the contents of a site that it owns. It is possible that neither Carbide nor the MP government owns it and that a prankster owns the site.

Another funny thing that I have observed recently. The webtroller of either Union Carbide or the MP Government have noticed my blog entry and they close the window anytime the link reference is from mwebmadhyapradesh.blogspot.com. I am pretty sure this was not happening earlier. But you type www.bhopal.com directly into the browser and you will get to the website without any problems. Or reboot and then enter www.bhopal.com and you will get through. If this was really a Madhya Pradesh Government employee doing this; the people of Madhya Pradesh deserve a new government.

क्या आप किसीकी हत्या करने के बाद उसके नाम पर वेब साईट बना सकते हैं?

Probably not. But that is what exactly Union Carbide has done with the Bhopal website. They may be a chemical company, but they sure have balls of steel.

The website pretty much indicates in a cryptic manner that they have done everything and paid "everybody". And if you have not got any dough you deserve, go bang your head at the state government's door.

This website is probably the most blatant example of multi national arrogance. I am pretty sure that many guffaws of laughter have happened at golf games involving Union Carbide executives about this neat little gesture to the people of Bhopal.
