A.Raja = ? (New Unit of counting system)

This is a forward from a friend. 
Kudos to the original writer of this piece.


Let's keep this going forward so that the new vocabulary gains ground and we can claim one more "first" in the field of maths!!
Addition to our vocabulary - the silver lining of scams!!!!!!!!
The large amounts mentioned in the scams have given us a new addition to the vocabulary that refers to large numbers like "googol" (10^100) - such as:

Rs. 1,00,000 crores.= Rs. 1 Raja
Rs. 10,000 crores ...= Rs. 1 Radia
Rs. 1,000 crores......= Rs. 1 Kalmadi

It will be easier to converse and comprehend large numbers.

A few examples:
Mukesh Ambani's home on Pedder Road  costs 4.50 Kalmadi
ONGC's annual output is 1.20 Raja
India 's loss in G2/G3 scam is about 1.70 Raja
India 's total annual subsidy on Kerosene is 2.00 Radias
The Bofors kickbacks amounted to 0.064 Kalmadi

Wonder if one can claim a patent on it?
But I guess in the larger interest of mankind, one should publicise it .....for free!!

Dear Madam,

I'm pained to see of late that your blog is becoming more political in nature. There are numerous TV channels, websites, blogs, magazines to talk about politics. I request you to please confine yourself to spiritual, religious and related topics - because that is what the blog was originally meant for.

Dear Mr Vaidhee,
Due to pre-occupations I could not reply to you immediately. I will write my reply as a separate post in a day or two.
