Yet again...!

Yesterday as I sat at Shivanis house and surfed channels, I got a dose of another bomb blast,at Mumbai…The last blast in Mumbai happened in the year 1993.This was when Mr. Dawood Ibrahim was the reason behind this havoc, this inhuman act against the good people of India.
Today, it seems to be “The Indian Mujahideen” who have created this wave of horror on our beloved city of blinding lights.
I sit here and seethe, no tremble, no confront, anger!!! My country has become the playground of some misled idiots who believe that paradise is around the corner, yes once you kill a few good people. No disrespect to the prophet, may he rest where/what state he is in, but there is more to this Life …than killing!

I believe in our Constitution, in what our forefathers formulated on the 15th of August 1947 when we gained our freedom from repression, from slavery, from FEAR!!! I believe that the great warriors of our nation believed in a strong India, in a new India. But, I doubt if they were alive today they would have been even slightly pleased. I look at the so called “Heads” of our governments who sit in their posh houses surrounded with Z securities,to pass rulings which hurt no one but you and me,while the common man is dying of terror attacks. Vote bank politics, fighting over who is the leader of the “Minority”, fighting (literally…we have seen it) with each other in the lower house of parliament….Leaders?????

Where is the job which they have been asked to do??? Were they not supposed to help this country grow??? Make our great nation into what it is destined to be???

Coming back to today!! I wonder if we are safe enough from this mindless violence?? These buggers walked into the Taj Hotel, unnoticed, unquestioned armed with AK-47’s and grenades????? Man that makes my blood boil. Who is responsible for the safety of the city, of the 120 (accounted for on television and 300+ in reality) dead in the mayhem. Are those idiots who are sitting in the parliament done with their “COMMITTEES”? Or they still want to DISCUSS things so that they don’t lose their votes in the upcoming elections.
One British national has died in the attacks and the British government is in uproar. Every attack in the history of terrorism in India leads to hundreds dying, and what does our great government do: discuss issues in committees!!
Come on, we are not some country who has existed since 4000 BC to be facing this day because of these incapable jerks( read- politicians)!!! Today,when I opened the to check the news related to the blasts,there it was…an advertisement for Sheila Dixit’s congress campaign!!! That’s the so called competent MEDIA of this of the largest in the world,yet indifferent…and all set to mint some more money.Switch on the radio…and you get to hear the RJ talking about benefits of Carpooling in disgusts me…to no extent!

What are they going to give to the brave ATS guys who died.. and the hundred innocent others…? A pension, A cheque for 5 Lacs, A bravery award?? Why are they even dead??Just because they decided to protect common people like you and me…just because they were a tad more patriotic than us?
I am ANGRY!!! I am LIVID!!! What do I do??? What do all of us do?sit and probably write some more of these posts…crib over the coffee sessions…and then forget about it in a few days?Today the youth..US.. make up 70% of our population. We are the projected new hope of India. Yet what are you, me, and every single youth of India doing??? Nothing..!
I know, I am sounding like just another cribber, who sits in his plush office and cribs, what can we do?? This country has surely gone for a toss and I would rather leave India and live in the serene surroundings of Switzerland!! Yes,this is what all of us think..and this is the choice we make between improving the state of this country..or enjoying our lives.. I don’t doubt we are the most patriotic people ever in this history, we believe in dedication of Bhagat Singh, in the vision of Sardar Patel, in the might of Subhash Chandra Bose. But what do we do today????

Who is answerable??? I say the politicians.They say the Intelligence,(even the opposition) But sadly, it really is a vicious circle. We are the ones who somewhere are also responsible,simply because we don’t care.We don’t vote,and let one hoarde after the other set of useless ministers get into power and learn to IGNORE.What has our education taught us..and what really is the difference between us and the lakhs of uneducated young men who come in big numbers to support the politician rallies,in a hope to get a square meal for the day,absolutely nothing. And today, I blame everyone ,including myself…and members of my family too, I blame them because I don’t want my country to end this way,I don’t want ruthless and unwanted killings…I want all of us to work towards a peaceful INDIA…which our great freedom fighters left to live the dream they died for!!!

I don’t blog…I never have, this is just a siphon, for my anger, my frustration, my

P.S:-That's Vin..and his thoughts on the Carnage In Mumbai...!

A song for friends:)

This is one song which I have been playing on my ipod on the repeat mode for days:)
Its one song that made me dedicate it to all my friends everywhere..
So much so that I make Vin dance with me every time it is played(and trust me he does it really cutely...)

I don't know if its the best song written for friends(I am sure its not)..but its just such a happy song that every time I hear makes me genuinely happy..brings me to my dancing mode(which by the way is pathetic)..and smiling..a smile for all my buddies who have been with me through all phases of my life..and which makes me adore them no extent

So here it is to all my friends..
This song goes out to all of you..:)

Tu hai toh tedi medi rahe,ulti pulti baatein
Seedhi lagti hai
Tu hai toh jhoote moote vaade,dushman ke iraade
Sache lagte hai
Jo dil mein taare vaare de jaga
Woh tu hi hai, tu hi hai
Jo rote rote de hassa
Tu hi hai wahin

Jaane kyun dil janta hai
Tu hai toh, I’ll be alright
Jaane kyun dil janta hai
Tu hai toh, I’ll be alright

Saari duniya ek taraf hai,
Ek taraf hai hum
Har khushi toh, dur bhage
Mil rahe hai gum
But when you smile for me
World seems all right
Yeh meri zindagi
Pal mein hi khil jaaye
Jaane kyun

Jaane kyun dil jantha hai
Tu hai toh, I’ll be alright
Jaane kyun dil jantha hai
Tu hai toh, I’ll be alright

Chhote chhote kuch palon ka
Dostana yeah
Jaane kyun ab lag raha hai
Jaana maana yeah
Coz when you smile for me
World seems alright
Yeah sare pal yahin
Yun hi tham se jaaye

Jaane kyun dil janta hai
Tu hai toh, I’ll be alright

For Reference:-
Song:-Jaane Kyu
Movie -Dostana(2008)

By the way..
A very Happy Children's Day to everyone..
Live that child within you today...and everyday:)

The food debate!

Me and Vin are always at loggerheads when it comes to food habits...To be precise,he hardly minds what I eat..and I mind almost everything that he eats...
As fate would have it,two people who are the complete opposite of each other are now married...and while every other difference in our traits is positive and makes our marriage rock,food is something which we can never agree upon...and it often brings us to I-am-not-talking-to-you situation(obviously the person not talking is me!)

To make things clear,he is an absolute non vegetarian,and I am an animal lover,an almost PETA activist,and a huge supporter of vegetarianism..

so anyways..this sunday afternoon, we were lazing around in the house.Vin managed to sprain his back while ironing his jeans and thus all weekend plans were restricted to the 4 walls of the house..and I didnt mind it too much since i was spared the pain of dressing up!
Our conversation progressed and digressed in the following way:-

Me:-Iam too lazy to make dinner...can we order in something
Vin:-(twinkle in the eye)-yeah..why what are we ordering?
Me: You decide..I want to eat something exotic..
Me:-How about a Pizza
Vin:-Pizza is not exotic..Pizza is our almost every third day food...
Me:-Then you decide..
Vin:-Hmmmm..I cant decide for you ..all u eat is ghaas foos
Me:-Huh..tats not ghaas foos..I eat healthy food..
Vin:-Yeah,double cheese margharita,garlic bread with extra cheese,florentine,,,sounds deliciously healthy...
Me:-Atleast I am a vegetarian!
Vin:-Yeah,I mean just so you are scared of putting on weight,you avoid the delicacies of life...I know not everyone is lucky to be fit!
Me:-Huh..Non veg food is no delicacy..I dont get kicks out of killing someone for my so called delicacy
Vin:-But I dont kill them...they are already dead when I am having them

The discussion was terminated and the topic was changed to discuss the movie we wanted to watch..

Meanwhile as he was watching Matrix for the n+1th time,I was working on editing some videos sent by the volunteers of PFA on how rashly the poor little creatures were treated by people.Noticing that I was not watching his favorite movie with him the n-1th peeped into my laptop to see what I was so deeply lost in..
The next moment,the grinning vin was seriously watching the screen of my laptop.
He was pretty moved and traumatized by the whole thing...and for rest of the day didn't really argue over the superiority of non vegetarian cuisine..

In the evening I was engrossed in watching Tom and Jerry..when suddenly vin announced

"I decided"
Vin:-I am quitting non veg food!
Me:-(Wide eyed,flabbergasted,shocked,surprised and elated..and blah blah)Really?
Vin:-Yeah,I m really moved by what I saw..
Me:-(Wow..)but then vin are you sure you can leave it all of a sudden?
Vin:-Iam dead sure..
Me:-ohh..thats wonderful,I knew you would understand some day.
Vin:-Yeah,I have even planned my diet now
Me:-Woow..Tell me..

Vin(Ear to ear grin):-From now onwards I will only have Boiled chicken,fish and other sea food.As for the rest of the delicacies,I will have them only once in a week or two...and for the rest,I will be a vegetarian!

I didnt have words!

And this is what I have:

1. If someone says "Is this okay?", you say:
Kyun aaj kal neend kam khwab zyada hai
lagta khuda ka koi nek iraada hai.
kal that fakeer aaj dil shehzada hai
lagta khuda ka koi nek iraada hai..

It's my life ,It's now or never

I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold

I believe that God does not endorse tv evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity
