Love deprived


Could not help but drove all the roads in history which I never wanted to drive again, I could feel the logjam in my heart again which floods could not move an inch. This beer is not helping anymore nor the smoke, the drive is creating an eery, a penance thirst “Leela”. If I would not have to personify but still describe her it would like A winner may not feel elated but being with her a lost soul could find a direction, an addict could leave his addiction if only once he could just look into those dark black eyes, it could go just on and on and on. “Leela” as mystic her name was, so was she, without a doubt. The clandestine a woman could bury in her heart, it was she who actually made me understand it. The name meant itself, “Leela a way describing all reality, including the cosmic energy”

It was not my fault and it did not matter anymore. It was all over, or that is what I told to myself or that is all I could hear myself saying over and over again. The beauty of her eyes, the long hair till her back, the texture of her skin so smooth, so soft, a touch could ruin her austere beauty. Her talks were like music from my guitar, beautiful; heart touching and absolute pleasure. Ad infinitum was just the limit to tell her how much I loved her; rather than saying it; that is all I could make her feel. It was all shattered with a bitter truth that I wasn’t the one she wanted in her life! The number of years together didn’t mean anything, suddenly my most precious movements; all my efforts; all my love; added with years of my life which under no ‘Foxtrot’ way was come back, the nomenclature was ‘a waste of time’.

My physical strength was did not hold me tight. My world, my pride, my voice, my everything was just in pieces. Unthinkably, uncountable, unreported loss of me; just in pieces, it did not stop. As I walked there was trail that I was leaving behind. The trail of burden with every step felt more on me and weaker I was; as a part of me was falling with those broken pieces of my heart, my soul, myself. Nothing felt important, nothing was ................ it was just blank, empty, vacuum; words that would not utter out of my mouth. Heart beats were gushing down the blood in my veins. I could feel it run through my head. Everything felt wrong and all the wrong was told to me seemed to be right.

Ironically I was dead and alive at the same time. My feelings were hit by the heaven above apocalypse had happened. The people who had warned me at every step, it seemed that their mayhem was true. Much more absolute, than my trust; my belief, coup de grace was only subtle to say what I am. Time moved ahead and so did she. I took ages and for her was just a week. My body felt betrayed as heat of the body was united; but the warmth so satisfy the soul didn’t exist. It felt nothing close to love but obligations to be done. Beauty did not seem beautiful but mass of flesh, invitations and crowd were nothing less than to the intrusion in my personal life felt.

  It is all over and here I stand struck by lightning as if nothing else mattered. The roads were the same but the walk seemed to be alone. The breeze was the same but failed to touch my body. The hands were the same just the gaps started to matter. The body was the same but the feelings didn’t matter. My love was the same but her absence didn’t matter. I am love deprived. All I wanted was a hug and I would have believed that things would be fine. It didn’t matter what it would be, just a simple hug from the billions alive none could give me the hug to say that I would survive. I am love deprived. I am love......

Silence or sound what is nonchalance?


A world full of deplored enmesh! (Ok that must have been a heavy start; let’s try to put it across simply). A world full of lack of mutual respect accompanied by a feeling of intense dislike meshed up together. (This is far better and easy to read). Surprisingly this is how life is! We make it complicated, fabricated, complex and meshed structure so that it looks beautiful (or at least sounds like). Whereas what is easily understandable are simple things; put simply across. A few bold statements ‘life is a teacher which comes without a manual of instructions of “how do we live?”’ then ‘growing old is happening, growing up is optional!’

I guess we have firmly put a firm foundation; and even if you don’t agree with the bold statements that I have written. I am sure you can still read ahead without any aversion (not that now I have posted the blog we can do anything about it, but Just in case). A question is being brought to surface and here it comes; does silence kills or the noise? Practically both are disastrous (which was not the fact before, but strangely there is ultra sonic weapon created, wherein noise can also cause serious injuries to somebody. Science and its uses wow). But speaking on personal front, think about it! What is actually is difficult decipher?

Obviously to me the silence, cause you spend a good time of life thinking about what went wrong #!@ where as when it is noise you can try to reason it out. I repeat try to reason it cause many a times, baseless is the word for encumbrance (but one should not lose hope). Silence does not allow you to crack down the actual cause; but lingers a logjam feeling of ‘whose go na be the millionaire’ it can be brutal, time consuming and can be taken for granted. Do what you feel like, it does not matter! (That was not the idea, but people do the best what is convenient to them) So; amazing small things over a period of time never said aloud; creates a vacuum (battle ground) for big, huge and Brobdingnagian issues. Actually whose trail lasts or are present in small, little, micro events happened some ages back.

Whereas noise; can be painful to ears and disturbing to the heart to somebody. It will always tell you what it meant, or the cause of it or ok there is a problem we need to talk about. It is safer way of dealing with issues and things. Think about it this way say there is a naughty child and is locked in a room, you will be comfortable till the time the naughty tike is making some noise. You would be confronted with curio if there is no noise coming from the room (because then you don’t know what’s happening). Similarly it is easier to fight a devil which is unknown.

People avoid and people run (though people should be running in the gardens with fresh air in the morning; people run away from confrontations and brutal discussions). Whenever it is seen that two people are unable to come to a common ground or an agreement instead of accepting that it can be agreed upon, people have funny ways of dealing with, stay mum(we talked about silence before), avoid the topic completely, ‘sorry’ I mean like c’mon it is a discussion of differences and not apology request. The end result the issues remains untouched; communication gap increases, ‘sorry’ does not have any value because the value of nonstop without a meaning perpetually repeated ‘sorry’; has the same value as much as salty water in the sea.

There is this saying ‘choose the devil that is known to you’, I would actually agree with considering that both silence and noise can be disastrous. Silence kept to the grave cannot bring the truth and noise said too loud will only cause deafening to the ears. Choose your way, take your stand, use you head and do what feels correct to you, because no matter what; you cannot keep everybody happy in the world and trust yourself and your decision it is least regretful doings in the journey called ‘life’.

Fears Festivals & Rituals my take....


What was the whole idea of building rituals? If I may; some 2000 years back (I know that we have the history which is much older that we carry, but name sake let’s consider 2000 years). Human race being not that disciplined (though not much has changed today as well) were to be disciplined so that we stand out of the animal race which we did. How do you discipline then? Who will the people fear and make them stick to the course? Well that is when the rituals were formed to discipline one (or apocalypse would take over, by the evil of course; lol). Ok done; but there are many ways to eat food, right! (Spoon, hands etc.) So to avoid conflict and use of different ways; the rituals and ‘how’ should they be carried out were jotted down (some piece of work huh!).

I hope we are still on the same page and the acoustic is not being obstructed. The society was fragmented; obviously communication was not a click away and easy. Law & order was an issue, as it is being said ‘that justice delayed is justice denied’ transportations were not with fuel and jet engines beneath their seats (basically there were no aeroplanes). Then how would people do the right thing within the frame work of the society? To deal with such cull issues rituals were born. Now when things are in law & order how would people come together, why would they meet and greet each other? What is that that would make them a society? The festivals were the answer.

As with years evolution or phylogenies or whatever took place.  Human being is a greedy animal and lazy too (you doubt this, check out all the inventions just to reduce human effort and work, think through pressing the pedal of the accelerator takes you miles! What effort did it take?) Human being has created everything to suit ones convenience and ease. Rituals are no different where it is too much just cut it short to suit the time frame. For example why is diwali celebrated? And the actual essence for which it was instigated is long forgotten; now it is becoming more of a fad or bursting crackers and if nothing else but pollution! #$# !

The ‘oil dia’ (lamp) is to be lit, the idea behind lighting the oil lamp is something completely different, but today it is more of fancy lights that are convenient and effortless. Can you light an electric bulb with another electric bulb, but you can surely light oil lamp with the one lit. The idea is to spread knowledge and warmth to others, do we know? Why do we do what we do? With the ages people have only forgotten to ask; consequently rituals deteriorated, without the proper foundation built which is resulting in a fragile building. The complexity and ignorance added with arrogance has built up a state wherein people ask questions like ‘are the festivals good or bad? Or are they necessary? Or oh good one more holiday!’

The relevance is to be understood before we bedevil our age old culture. Rituals should not hamper the culture that has been inculcated, incorporated and have sustained the test of time and time again. I am not saying to blindly accept it as well, but before taking a decision can we try to understand the essence; the cause of existence; the authenticity; the reason; etc. think about it. Take what is relevant to you, that suits your taste and lifestyle, trust me there much more than that works and is relevant still today! I will tell you why me even saying to find out, how many of us have felt lost, lost track, failed to reason of doing what we doing! Or just why should we do what we are doing (festivals, rituals)?

We have no time, but completely free; we have no time to talk, but bbm (what’s app or whatever) is always on, we have no friends, but tons of acquaintances to fill a hall. The sense of direction, the cause to join together as a society is to be brought to surface. Rest I may have repeated it in previous blogs but I would like to bring it to notice again ‘Teri barbadiyon ki mushwaren hai aasmano mein, na badloge toh mit jaoge ae Hindustan walo teri dastan bhi na hogi dastano mein’. Fear will not led people to come together but trust, mutual respect and motivation would.

Who else is above the ‘LAW’?


The mens rea followed by the corrupt politician was like just not enough! That to jut out we have many commoners and un-commoners that adds to the trail list in the mayhem rectitude above the law. Azad hind express the train that runs from Howrah to Pune, there is a stop in between called Nagpur. To the issues pertaining already in the country call is ‘whatever’ movement; the trains from Howrah are running perpetually late. The train was already late 6 hours 30 minutes obviously ‘not cool’. There was a bunch of boxers in some army regiment who were travelling as well, in 3tier AC compartment. These were no less than 35 in number, boxers as the sport suggest; not the kind of people you would like to land up in a fight with.

These so called sportsmen were drunk, the whole wagon smelled of liquor. To the top it up these boxers had fidgeted with the females in the compartment. They surely reported it to the police. The train hopelessly tried to get running three times; and three times the chain was pulled. The delay was only delayed. The women had to say that these people need to be out of the train so that they can continue the journey. 

There were cops, somebody from the army huge ‘tamasha’ the complaint after cogent efforts was written down. The copy of the same was another issue, leaving all the things and details aside. The person who was trying to fight for all this the cops themselves tried to take him out of the train. Why? You are doing that to the commoners. The so called ‘boxer’ was settled in another wagon wherein an officer guaranteed that shall not be able to leave the wagon and create any more mess.

Out of all the government machinery army or defence in general; is one of the most reputed organisations in India. Is this to be expected from the defence personnel’s? This is just one of the instances. Traffic signal hopping and jumping over the signals is like a fad, the traffic signals are meant to be followed, even if the roads and empty which really does not happen much. The cops catch up while talking on the phone and jumping the signals and the usual thing to the cop “you know who my father is?” At times it is like I wish to ask don’t you know who your father is? But keeping these aside, the gist is who else is above the law? As far as I know Ambulance, fire brigade and police in case of emergency are allowed to jump signals where are all these newbie’s coming up from?

Few find joy and are proud of jumping signals and getting free. So now if I recall the corrupt politicians who cannot be charged are above law, the nippers of a son of a gun is above law, the so called people with some political connection is above law,  any law strictly applied in an organisation is an atrocity to the people in quota’s; obviously they are above the law, the billionaires with frauds and scams are free and above law, the big gangsters with some hanky panky contact is out free on the roads obviously above the law, the defence (yes I agree they have a different law that is applicable to them only) but still. There is a list that has come to surface of the people / bodies / commoners / un-commoners that are above the law. 

Not to forget the least the police, who act as the custodians of the law; whose primary responsibility is to maintain law & order nay to say; well let’s not get in to the details. Who else is to be added to the list any suggestions? A lot of people would not turn up to say that Foxtrot Union Charlie Kilo law I will break it as well; but let me remind you my friend. The one who can complain about it is the one who have followed it. You stop your vehicle on the signal and others would follow you. Everybody’s responsibility is no one’s responsibility. People look for a leader, be the change to see the change. Abide by the law so that others are compelled to be under the perimeter of the law of the land. Either by choice or by force.

What you say?


It is an experience felt with many discussed in few; it is actually a life turning and churning experience to be honest. Hypocrites with sugar coated sweet talks and mens rea if not any less; what all they can do is talk the talk rather than walk the talk are like demigods; supernal. On the other hand honest and conducive intentions for the better meant of the whole are primarily outcasted and infernal. It is common notion to increase communication gap, stress on everything else except the objectivity of the issue. The delivery of an issue is more important than issue becoming nasty to be dealt with. Welcome to the marketing world built in families and closed ones. How many would remember a talk within the family? The days have changed; family time is considered to be watching the idiot box together, going and coming together for social commitments. To succeed; mayhem the other one with the efficient sweet talk and nobody would be blamed as well (What amazing use of the brains).

With all due respect to the Indian culture; it is uncouth to communicate between the generations. Only to add to the icing on the cake, the unwritten laws and incompetent people ask their respect; which do not have any basis and foundation. Avarice pulls the relatives near ones and not near ones together. But respect them and the talks should only be soothing to one hearing than the actual truth and hard facts; never the less to be in favour of what the other person wants to hear. Strange but true as the communication which has not ever happened before (on a personal level), but according to the wimps and fancies one is expected to behave and talk and keep in the limits no matter how unfair the issue. Why should I? Because it needs to be that way! Why should I? Don’t overstep your boundaries! Why should I? You are no less than a disgrace! One last try why should I? You are not worth talking, you don’t understand.......

The fact is the custodians of proclaiming respect don’t have reasons, everything is to ones convenience; convenience of the self proclaimed worthy people. It is only apparition but nothing more. The honesty would lie down on the grounds only to be buried under the dirt, accumulated over the years. Selfish motives and traits to act smart are the curriculum taught to the young generation. A few accept adapt and excel, a few lay relax and understand, a few who do want to make their personal lives as the parliament on India don’t fall for it. The losers in today’s world are the ones who fall in the last category. The winners are the one who excel and cope de grace the ones who lacked.

All these are not something new to talk about and surely it might sound like the daily soups that we are confronted to everyday and day after day without a break. The responsibilities are turning only liabilities.  The people who have cooed the skill of delivering are the winners. The crux and the multimillion question arising is do I join the band wagon? Am I supposed to turn myself from the less worthy to the only worthy? And is this the only and sustainable way to be with the closed ones, be it family; be it friends? I would wish you linger around with this thought. The truth is as shared at large with many; is that only winners say; make a difference. Is this the only way to be a winner? Do I join?

Rebuffed citizenry


How much are we hearing the Jan lokpall bill? How much are we able to hear about Kiran Bedi, Anna Hazar or Kejriwal? For second thoughts; is everything in media or the general public forgotten in a brandish? When it is there, it is the only thing that is there; and then it evanesces (and gone for good, bad actually obscure disappearance takes place with no closing). Are we actually used to ‘chalta hai’? And even if that being the case when does it seem to stop? Loads of questions right, but think about it! When the fasting by Anna or Ramdev and again Anna was on that was the only thing as left on earth to discuss about. Go to office that story is the first greeting, go to see friends they would talk about it, see the news (Oscar Mike Gold; the number is increasing; every minute detail was a news) walk by and you can over hear the people talking about it. Now what?

Are you trying to tell me that so many people who had come together have been given a capsule to ‘forget partial memories’? New problems, old solutions or old problems and new sham statements. Everything is actually crystal clear; the end notion is nothing happening (tell me something new). This dialog we have heard a number of times in our movies ‘have you ever seen a corrupt politician being charged of their doings?’ well let’s not stretch this. But one last multimillion question to be asked ‘has the media also forgotten about it? Or it made sure that don’t talk about it?’ ssshhhh koi hai.

Let’s talk something new now borders are under a threat! Ok tell me something new about it again, well the new thing is that before they were a threat only at the borders; lately it has been found out that they are entering our territory and making their presence felt by marking the stones. I guess basically creating a landmark map don’t you think? It is kind of important and of great concern that the cities, the borders are not being appropriately guarded. Will we wake up again when it is too late or till then ‘chalta hai’ would continue.

It is not that I have forgotten; it is not that I don’t care; it is not that I can’t do anything about it; it is au found ‘chalta hai’ my question is how long? Scams and the moolah consociated is just a number now; it only starts with crores and ends with lined up zeros behind it. There is no blame game here I want to bring to surface let that be to the politicians. Here I am to bring about a fundamental question do we want to change? Corruption is adept when it for me; but a curse when for the public! Well is that how we plan to fight corruption? Is it the reason that there was the wave where everybody was together standing for it, but now we stand fragmented?

Loads of questions asked let’s try to seek a few suffice solutions. We should be able to understand what we are standing for! (Yes we are talking too much and feasibility is too little, not that it cannot happen; is it sustainable and fair at large, should be the point of determination). The Government is trying and making everything electronic lately the service tax etc. etc. shall be paid electronically (the concerned should take out time attend training and actually help them to come up with valuable and specific issues so that they can do their bit). You have a right to seek information and officials have duty to provide the same (sitting on their head and getting the information on the spot is not a lasting solution as far as I see, persistence is the key). As greatly, wisely said ‘be the change you want to see’ change might not come as the whole that we want to see, change is what we need to do our bit for it.

One statement that was made by one the Judges of India some time back apt and apt is the only word I can say “Watan ki fikra kar nadan; teri barbadiyon ke mashware hai aasmanon mein, teri barbadiyon ke mashware hai aasmanon mein; Na samjhoge toh mit jaoge e Hidustanwalon; teri dastan tak na hogi dastano mein” If we fail to act now, me may run a risk never to act again.

Acoustic sitting both sides of the table!


Being an entrepreneur is like riding a bi cycle, you need to balance it; pedal it; apply brakes while riding and watch out for your road, so that you don’t hit into something / someone, keep a sense of direction; so that you don’t go astray from the path. All these activities are to be done simultaneously; so that the ride is comfortable and reiterates. Making sure that it all works together is of vital importance or else you would be leading; in the race against yourself. To make a comeback to your actual path nay to say that you need to pedal more; i.e. time consuming; but also you might have to take acrid turns which may; may not act in favour to you. There is a simple logic; you can take time as much as you want; when you are yet to start a business! Once started it need to replenish time, energy and money.

 I had been to seminar lately wherein Chanakya way of 7 pillars of business was discussed, I would like to share the same as a basic idea that an entrepreneur should keep in mind ‘ALWAYS’. It is so surprising that these principals made ages back are absolute and can accumulated without any changes.

1.      The King (The leader) the primary need is to have a committed leader who would act, behave and have a vision not just for a company but also including the people who are there in the company along with the leader. The person responsible for the whole.

2.      The Minister (The Manager) the people who are to second the leader who are responsible in the absence of the leader. Responsible with limited areas and expertise.

3.      The Country (The market) decide your target market; make a survey collect data compared than to assume notions by bystanders. Where / who do I sell my product / services? Why would they buy?

4.      The Fortified City (Head Office) Make sure that there is comfortable work environment which is safe for colleges to work along.

5.      The Treasury (Money) everybody understands it you need to have money to start off also at the same time you should manage well the money that you have.

6.      The Army (The Team) The people who are associated in the daily working where actually the executive work takes place should be well equipped and aware of the responsibilities. They should understand their own work.

7.      The Ally (Friend) it is easy to get unidirectional in order to achieve a motive. Friends, consultants in the same field you seeking knowledge; should be brought into the loop which would help for more insights. Mind it the key work is ‘selected’ and not the whole wide world.

These points are the whole pie which make it complete, any of the parts missing would not complete the pie. These same principals can be applied in personal life as well, but as far as business is concerned it is clear demarcation of responsibilities and applicability of people. Nay the idea of entrepreneurship is to make money, yes that is fact; but for sustainable business it should be fair / ethical work practises to all associated as well. The leader is centre point; the leader should be energetic, optimistic and logical towards his work and colleges.

The vision of the leader shall lead the crowd to where it would reach. It is essential for the leader not only to lead but also to be humble enough to understand the other side of the table. A good strategy is of vital importance but applicability would surpass its importance when applied. Take actions and actions lead to responsibility of those actions. Open to new; but matured with experience is the mix and balance that a leader needs to have in ample.

The leader who will not instigate; will not motivate but inspire to excellence would reach heights. The growth is inevitable when a mission to reach a new height and footing perfectly on the ground. That is when the leader is able to sit on both sides of the table.

The aspects which are a must for a leader can be well understood with the whole brain model by Ned Herrmann please refer to Figure 1 below. The leader cannot only be Logical without being Emotional at the same time a leader cannot be Holistic without being sequential. These may clearly not define what a leader / what an entrepreneurship is? It clearly defines what a leader / entrepreneurship should have to be called one.

Obfuscate and......


How much good news is good? Is the news ever good; the demonic performing few good deeds is justified to call it for a good character. How much bad is bad so that it can be proclaimed as good? Is it unwritten law that for some good, there has to be Brobdingnagian loses? Bloody family talks are shifting from family to daily soaps; to top it up like the icing on the cake; the examples, model characters and society overview are coming from the idiot box. Our culture has gone for a ride and custodians of culture want to be proclaimed themselves as demigods! The brand image the new generation carries is that it has gone to waste.

Mobiles phones with “what’s app”, “bbm”, “gtalk”, “fb” everything right there to communicate how much are we talking? Essays of messages can be sent but when a call, boss I am busy! Good question to think about connectivity is are all these to connect or increase distances. What the.....coming back to a more interesting incident on culture, been to a very old, reputed (manna hua mandir; no location revealed because of our senti people who might take an offence for no damn good reason though), if to explain I am a mobile phone then I am in that case in “pooja, bhakti wala” mode. You enter and there is a huge line fair enough; chaos around fair enough; c’mon city lives are no different so it normal used to it stuff. Finally reached inside the temple for offering prayers; the milk is being wasted not only being wasted it is the same that falling on the floor, making it as tacky as much as you could think about, dirt, milk through away plastic cups around the floor; what a mess!

Never the less let’s move on, it is more like an adventure sport to get the glimpse of the idol and when you nearing, the custodians would jump on you to make your offerings. The offerings you wana give and the one on which they settle down does not have any co relation at all. As if the blessings are directly proportional to the offerings being made. Let’s move on again; after all we are used to mutatis mutandis, I have a question how would you expect the young to be attracted to continue or learn our rituals in such a chaos? Culture and rituals are two different things I agree completely. The point I am trying to bring forward is the culture is the gateway to rituals and not vice versa; but practically and sadly we are exposed to rituals first then to the culture.

What is right? The fully faltu daily soaps running practically 24 x 7 with at least two repeat telecasts a day on the idiot box. The culture I want to learn and attach too is more or less leading to ill feelings than blessings. What are we adopting? What are we leaving behind do we even has a clue of what all we are leaving behind? Is the culture really important or culture is what was made ages back when the laws did not exist to make sure a human being behaves like humans and not animals? Do any of these actually make sense now to pursue or to follow? Or is it that because of few rituals we are forgetting the ages old enormous wealth of knowledge that our ancestors left for us.

My inability to understand the whole might lead me to take sides whichever side I choose I would like to know the whole of it so that I am sure of my decision till then it is obfuscate.

Cowards and corrupt


Coward: English dramatist and actor and composer noted for his witty and sophisticated comedies (1899-1973) or A person who shows fear or timidity; the later one is just too subtle to explain exactly what they are so why I have something new. A by product of human species they are neither human nor a species; cannot fight in the broad day light but bombard with dud costing lives of innocent people. This by product would not even fight for cause; especially because there is no cause. The extent of their inability to find a cause can be understood from the fact; nobody even has the guts to claim of their doings lately. Let me know if don’t agree with these aimless, unethical and headless chicken’s this by product of the so called human race.

Corrupt ha ha ha we have become a standing joke in the name of corruption, a study of 183 countries that how strongly you can enforce a contract (formal agreement in India). You know what we stand 182[1] wow so amazing! Let me enlighten you now. The more the number the less reliable you are to enforce a contract. How was that now? Corrupts have to evolved and upgraded to the extent that would sell of their soul only if they could find the right price. Don’t even try to think that these corrupt could think about the other people’s cost of lives forget ethics.

The blasts that took place at 10:14 am on 07th September 2011, in Delhi (the state capital, the country capital) “OUTSIDE” the high court at gate number 5, casualties increasing last I heard over the news was 9, more than 60 injured. “OUTSIDE” is of importance, the police have to claim that they did not have any intelligence for the blasts (Tell me something new I am sick and tired of listening to the same old story as much as I am sick and tired of listening to the fuel prices going up). The other important thing the police claimed very strongly is the blast happened outside the premises of the court in a public area. I have a multibillion dollar question for you who tango foxtrot is responsible for the security at the public places?

The idea is to transfer the blame from one person to the other, from one agency to the other agency nobody for the responsibility but blame every tom dick and harry on this earth. I don’t believe that paroxysm can happen in a country like India just like that. We humans have a tendency to perform under fear. If we fear breaking a law we would think about it before doing it. The fear of being caught, a fear of being prosecuted, a fear to be punished for the wrong done. This really does not work in India right? Obfuscate is nothing and wrong is absolute. Corrupts walk freely and the ones that could the see the brief of prison with special privileges make it no less than a star hotel with free meals and health benefits to live onto.

The Indian law system works in a way wherein a person caught has to be proved guilty in the court, the other way of law in Europe is that you have been caught; you have to prove yourself innocent. I am not trying to change the law system I am just trying to say that we have good law system. When would the applicability come to life? You trying to tell me a man held for serial blasts in India, in Indian prison living on tax payer’s money has been given more security than the tax payers and the prosecution could not prove him guilty for year together.  

Amazing quote by the ex chief justice of India just too apt “teri barbadiyon ke mashuwaren hai aasmano mein, teri barbadiyon ke masheuwaren hai aasmano mein, na badloge toh mit jayoge, na badloge toh mit jayoge, ae Hindustan walo teri dastaan bhi na hogi dastano mein”

Let’s be the change, if we could stand together for our own lives, we would stand for long. I abrogate against the innocent losing their lives for no reason. I abrogate against corruption that is weakening my country like the woodpecker to the wood. I abrogate to the inability of ours to come along and resist injustice and define freedom.

Lost identities; confused minds; betraying souls


We turn up to things / people when we need them; not necessarily cause we want them; or have appreciated them throughout the time span we knew about them. It is just we turned to them cause we needed it. So what people do the same! (Curst reply, defences working, will get back to this in a bit!@?!). Identity crisis a few may have confronted with it; a few thought about it; and rest; it is ubiquitously inexistent. Obfuscate with dark surroundings makes a complete one stop shop for ambiguity to reside; only to realise ambiguity is nothing more than a parasite, nevertheless giving an impression that seems like a lifeline.


Too many thoughts rattle and battle; too many options and too many things to give up; is the feeling shared at large. Let’s tackle one at a time, you would not believe it or may not agree with it but we are just too used to make it sound complex, difficult and make it out of this world kind of a thing! Starting with defensives, somehow the revolutionised human race has come to the conclusion that being defensive is the best way to save oneself. As there is a situation we know that we are stuck; we run, avoid or defend actually none work in favour to solve or resolve but evolve the issue. It surely works to shoulder the responsibility from your shoulder to someone else’s problem but nothing more than that.


My favourite line now ‘Let’s makes it simple’. Peer pressure works more than how we work! (Sadly that is how majority things work). Confused minds well ha ha ha! That we are so used to cause that is something that we don’t like and still land up doing it; the most common examples seen in our education system itself; doctors and engineers (quite a few not many I would say); not because they want to do something good to the society or innovate new things in technology, but cause that is the fad; obviously short lived creating confusion on the existence and lack of desire to perform.


I know some someone struggling actor for past few years; sadly nothing coming to that persons luck! The whole problem is not that they cannot accept the defeat but ego leaving behind a lot of things without a second thought saying that I would be ‘so n so’ and that has not worked out. The idea is to become an actor and not show people what you are, rising ambiguity and objectivity has changed. Surely destination has reached ad infinitum and the road is logjam.


Finally taking all the shortcuts and winding roads; the return to self is a series of paroxysm if not one. You finally turn to yourself for some piece of advice and then the soul betrays because all this time when you were not listening there were shots of drinks served as advice that were thrown out! Never to return, abysmal to its existence. Well this all is getting too heavy the gist is, when caught in a situation relax and think clearly, hasty solutions leads to more hastily eagerly waiting problems. Closed minds would also not allow you to filter great solutions. Be the change and point of solution, and not a source of ambiguity as B8 wherein the scope of differentiation is lost due to a simple confusion of reading as B or as 8.

1.2 Bn lives and their worth....

 
It’s surprising to even think about I am just one of the 1.2 billion called Indian citizens how much is the worth of a life? Many have lost their lives and many more injured it has not happened for the first time! But it better be the last. I am talking about the manmade disasters; irrespective of the reasons the event has occurred and set many more than we can count in a state of fear and losses irrevocable. Who is to be blamed? Hahahaha blame game is the old recipe in the years over which our so called custodians of government have really learnt how to make a delicious dish; which sounds delicious; made to be imagined as delicious; made to believe the aroma is delicious nay to say it only exists but not in reality.

Welcome to India from a commoners view of life. There is this saying I am recalling again and again ‘United we stand; divided we fall’ how true it is. Think about it last time we acted divided we lost the country, which took generations to recover, last time we lost our respect by acting divided, but this time we are losing our lives. Reasons for Bombay (Yes I am calling it Bombay cause you know what for ages it has been Bombay; dividing people on the name of cast, religion is not interesting anymore) to be attacked is; as many of us who have actually lived in Bombay would know, that yes it is the financial hub of the country also; it is one city where the people are not divided; they act one; they behave one; even though nobody has time for nobody but in crisis everybody has acted a family; remember the floods; people did open those stores which provided basic necessities and you know what the owners rationed the products; it was not about money it was about acting responsibly; nobody had to tell them what has to be done; it was people who helped people; officials, agencies, forces they did turn up but big names, short of sight. This is the true spirit of Bombay; this is the spirit of Bombay; that makes it Bombay.

 How much is the worth of a life is the question? I am not interested in what government has done; I am not interested of what government would do? I am not interested how many commissions are go na step up to give false claims that it shall not happen again? I am interested in leading where such avoidable disasters do not become the part of my everyday life! What can you do about it? Don’t make money as the barriers for the incompetence on performance cause you know what still India has the largest amounts of black money in foreign banks. It is your abyss crave of money that has lead India to become a play ground for antagonism testing’s.

No matter what you say now; who you blame now the damage is done; it cannot be forgotten and shall not be forgotten. There is this saying that we know ‘that Indians would join hands and bow and tolerate’ you know what let me complete it for you’ who only have known the first part of saying the whole thing is ‘Indians would not only join hands and bow but will also know when to open the hands and slap right on the face’. Stop hogging on the money, stop this bloody corruption, stop this mal practices, stop making laws for the heck of making them cause at the end of the day no matter how much money you have hogged upon; there is not even 1p that you will be able to take along.

Live life not just to be lived but life that has been made worth living.

Walks of life.....still walking!


This amazing dilemma of life, this should end! Once this is done I am free. There is no stop, this eery would pass but the next is just waiting round the corner or at times even before the first one is over. It is viscous circle of so called ‘issues’ or ‘problems’ they keep pouring on. I am sure a lot of us have come to the belief that it does not end and it will not end. As each coin has two sides let’s take the other side. It is there cause I am alive and I can handle it; this is also a way to look at things until we have decided eavesdropping! I was chatting with someone and some talk happening about critics; I got the one of the most simple and astonishing reply it said ‘if you are being criticised, it is good cause it means you are noticeable’ LOL but on a serious note a thought. Is this is it we call attitude!

This movie Evan Almighty 2007, I guess not sure but there was this dialog I remember ‘if someone prays for patience; does god give him patience? or gives an opportunity to be patient. If someone prays for courage; does god gives him courage? or an opportunity to be courageous....’ no matter how difficult it is to digest, but all things that happen in the walks of life at end lands out to be for the good. I agree a lot may disagree but let’s try to recollect; I am sure small or big; slow or steady but all the things happens for the good, there is something we have learnt out of it right. May not be pleasant but hello! Let’s put it this way no matter what we have achieved in lives they are forgotten but if there is a mistake......man people are go na make you alive from the grave just to remind you that OMG you know what you had done this wrong.

Things don’t work out the way we had planned, thick and thin are just phases of life that tells us that when we have enjoyed the thick; we will survive the thin as well. Ensconced to something is when we are ensconced!?! Two ways to look at it as a. How the difference would be known if we are not ensconced?  b. Because we are not ensconced we are different. Slight / marginal enmeshed structure may differ between the two; but how do we know the difference? Let’s take a simple example draw a line of 1cm on the paper with a scale, lift the scale see it then continue it draw another 1 cm of line again and again and again.... a few more. You know what I am talking about right! This is what it is at times we have to see things from a larger perspective and from the distance.

Perspectives are perspectives they would change, not by sticking to a perspective and asking for people to change; but the cause for the change to you your own perspective; let the others be! The most difficult part is to change one own self. What you thought when you were when 10 is not what you think at 20 surely not at 30 and so on so ahead; what has changed? You! Are you kidding me? you are you only and shall be you no matter what. The perspectives has changed the way you look at things have changed that is the only change. Ego comes in between you and the shifts of the change because it is OMG it is you; how could you be wrong right? Let the wrong and right be. As earth was flat five hundred years ago a fact; earth being oval is also a fact today.

Times immortal are also for the immortals, I live today and so do you. Issues / problems are today and are required to be faced today. Ideals were built for the ideals and people who were ideals I don’t say don’t follow them I say be sure not to be taken for a ride because you follow them. Every day is not bright and sunny with cool breeze blowing; it is going to be rainy and cold as well. All roads aren’t to the destination, at the end they are just road. All walks in life are not going to be pleasant; but enjoy the view feel the best and be proud that you are walking and keep walking.  

comments, critics and encouragement are also part of life share freely

Custodians of democracy


Arguing, debating and playing with words and tones to present the same information in best suitable way to suit ones say / motive / stand that one takes; irrelevant to the cause / issues for which they were said on the first place. Welcome people to the la la land of the custodians of our so called democracy. Brilliant defenders of democracy saying nice suited words about democracy as ‘democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people’ well said; do you who had said this? Abraham Lincoln. I hear the same gloomy speeches / promise again nothing new about it; what next? There is another saying to be brought to notice ‘Elections belong to the people. It is their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters’ Guess who said it! You are right Abraham Lincoln again. Think just don’t flow with the flow; some food for thought!

Starting with the key issues for which the so called ‘civil society’ has come into play a) demolition of corruption in India and the second movement b) Indian black money primarily in Swiss bank. The agenda for getting rid of corruption looks primarily organised, well written in Black n White and foreseeable with conclusive system to work, in accordance with the motive. The second key issue recovering back the black money which amounts to more than $1.4 trillion mind it dollars not rupees,(That makes every Indian at least a millionaire Yipeee, population of India 1.2 Billion) without a clear agenda; it seems more or less like I want to go the moon, yeah sounds great but how? The eternal silence with subjective answers not objective solutions to the cause(also you don’t get interest for putting amount in the Swizz bank you get deducted by 1%  so basically 1.4 Trillion 2010 is – 1% for 2011). These issues are no longer the India against corruption movement and bringing in the black money back in India. It has become the Anna Hazare movement and the Ram Dev Baba movement respectively. Is the idea to form a system on which people can depend or returning to square one where people on which systems are going to depend?

I am no historian but depending on people has not really worked for us has it? The discretion being made that India against corruption movement is for Urban and getting the black money back is for rural population of India, who says that? Well because the people leading it, and representing the different parts of society i.e. we are forgetting the issue but retaining to the fact because of the people who are leading it again. Hello, wake up isn’t it the first problem why are we supporting the civil society? Am I really bothered about who said what half a century ago? Honestly ‘shit no’ I am here today those words were said by the ideals for the ideals not for wolves in cashing every meat in and around the jungle.

These so called debates are good putting forward the contrasting couple to face the music with live audience. It all starts good till the time somebody gets defensive and then OMG the long forgotten history is revealed, people are hunted to their graves and brought to life relation to the matter utterly unrelated to the key issues and then .......let’s not talk about it. I have once basic question to ask a) are we discriminating again urban, rural; ruling party opposition party have we forgotten the divide and rule ‘funda’ let enlighten strike you now. These so called leaders or the custodians of democracy just start playing blame and shame game again and again; even I am tired of typing it but yet again. Is the media overdoing it the multibillion question? Well media is actually just projecting the new ones nothing new anymore even in that, cash for votes, Common wealth games, 2G, the list is on....it is helping with the pile of list! Very good I am aware but what happened to the previous ones, gone with the wind? No conclusions no results, wait for the next one. Nothing wrong with that; but there can be something more right.

Laws are made for the ideal sitting legislative committee or the role of governance in the society at large for the smooth working on a system? Number of laws enacted specially recently with no utter relevance a) to the public b) practicality of laws (out of question) c) surely relevant to increase corruption. One thing that strikes back is; are these, the custodians of democracy of modern India? Well let me put it across to you this way the growth, the technology, the innovations is of the people who made it possible, by the people who worked hard to enrich the society at large and for the people who did not discriminate like your elections agenda pamphlets; to earn votes. Stop it anyways we aren’t interested in it anymore. There are issues let’s try to work out solutions then creating insoluble solvents.

Urban n.....

The so called fast moving, complicated, next generation life we living, irony with stills. The idea is to magnify the beauty or the occurrences, happening around us; nay creating them only but just taking a look around. 
While lifting this big block of floor, the crane actually got lifted

Smoke and still breathing

The way we pumping pollution around us

No matter how dark the road is there would be light somewhere

crowded; but are we losing the connection?

To the journeys ever taken, rememberence to those times 

It is ok to be a bit dizzy at times, a few things just happen to look better

crossroads, situations will come always, but going further would set a path choose the right track

Things can look a bit blurry in the start the vision would get it's clarity 

Everything is not important we need to focus as well

At times we should have the look of things the other way round

The view can be different just need to know the view before denying it

Reflections are also a way of looking at the complete picture

It is looks just the same, take out time to see it, it is worth it 

Lose the usual roads, it might surprise you with something more

Colours bring in difference, try something new


The cover can also act as a trap, make sure you know what you are getting into in long term; before you move

Try being green, the mother nature loves it and so do we

Whatever it comes to you mind it is yours

Amsterdam trip

The city of canals, a city big enough to digest different cultures, a city small enough to retain its beauty, the city of canals Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is not just the city just for that; but it has much more. It has history, it has a beginning, it has a purpose. A city that can accepts you, but also engulfs you. Instead of putting in words I want to show you Amsterdam my way.
