A tale of two nations

Azerbaijan. If you ask questions like, "What is it? Which language is it?", I would really like to conclude that your IQ is less than that of an ant. Located in central Asia, Azerbaijan is among the top two in the list of "How good is the country name?" - an exclusively researched list prepared by GuruWrites. The capital of this Azerbaijani speaking nation is Baku. Also monikered Baki in Azerbaijani. Azerbaijan is democratic and more importantly secular. Economic growth - An astonishing 41.7% in Q1 of 2007. It's currency Manat - 1 Manat = 1.10 US$. Such impressive facts about this nation should have made it the talking point at meetings of world leaders, be it at G8 or G6 or G4 or G followed by whatever even or odd number. But that is not the case. So world leaders should not just be condemned for this, they should also resign. And more importantly UN should be dissolved as it has failed to prevent world leaders from ignoring Azerbaijan - a situation that can lead to a situation that can be very tension filled and warlike.

Burkina Faso. The other country in the top two in the list of "How good is the country name?" - an exclusively researched list prepared by GuruWrites. In contrast to Azerbaijan, this country is unimaginably poor according to this. The welfare of the people of this nation, who take pride in calling themselves "Burkinabe", has not at all crossed the minds of world leaders. These world leaders are busy preoccupied with absolutely trivial issues that see no resolution. So world leaders should not just be condemned for this, they should also resign. And more importantly UN should be dissolved as it has failed to prevent world leaders from ignoring Burkina Faso - a situation that can lead to a situation that can be very tension filled and warlike.

Somehow I always remembered place names which was a little hat ke! Like do you know the capital of Honduras? Tegucigalpa? I have won an inter-company fun quiz with this trick question up my sleeve!

"Tegucigalpa" - Interesting name.
