Obfuscate and……

Posted: September 22, 2011 in Politics and views
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

Posted: September 7, 2011 in Politics and views
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 know. 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.
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.

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!

Posted: June 18, 2011 in Self


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

Posted: June 13, 2011 in Politics and views


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.
