Three line whip for womens bill was sent to Rajya Sabha MPs by SMS
Both Congress and BJP have now adopted to send mobile phone SMS
and emails, to their MPs.

DMK has also begun this process. S S Palanimanickam has objected
SMS practice. Because SMS does not have legal sanctity. MPs can defy that
and deny that they ever received.DMK has 18 MPs in Lok Sabha. Even their
party organisational matters are now being put to SMS

Parliamentary practice of three line whip has been such that in the Parliamentary
Party letter head the Chief Whip will sign individually on photocopies of the letter.
The necessity for three lines whip will always be mentioned. Much more requirement
which is statutory is that the word WHIP should be in capital alphabets which will
be in BOLD letters, important is that under the WHIP there shall be three lines.
Emphasising the necessity for the presence of the MPs in the house.

Joke amongst the SMS does not have three lines underscoring the word
whip.  How it would be legal. 
Soon after the Womens Bill were passed, the AICC media cell organised
an exclusive one to one interview with almost all TV Channels.It was another
coincidence that Sonia Gandhi gave interviews only to Women editors and journalists
and politely told the male editors that there shall be a separate TEA or breakfast with them
once Lok Sabha passed the womens bill.
Computer Clinic first time being heard ... For MPs the CGHS clinic is well known for 
but for the first time a computer clinic is coming up. Many MPs found the following 
circular amazing. when they read it.-
 A Computer Clinic for the Members of Rajya Sabha aNd their personal staff
 is proposed to be organized by the Rajya Sabha Secretariat, in collaboration
 with the NIC during Budget Session from 26 to 30 April,  2010. Officers/Engineers from NIC will impart training on Computer
Basics and also familiarize the Members and their Personal
Staff with features of Rajya Sabha Website and other Government
Websites and also sort out operational/technical difficulties being
faced in accessing internet or any other computer related matters.
Members are requested to send their nomination and also
 nominate their personal staff for the said Computer Clinic latest by 18 March, 2010.
