26/11...

Today is the 26/11 anniversary and it’s an year since our great India found itself caught pants down. Life goes on. And the first anniversary of 26/11 is just that to everybody who did not lose somebody in the terror attack on the Mumbai...a date.

To recall the horror of that night when you thanked your God that your loved ones and you were not wining and dining at the Taj or Oberoi, nor catching a beer or a champagne at Leopold, waiting for a train at CST station, delivering a baby at Cama Hospital, when bloody ten armed terrorists sailed in from Pakistan and chopped the soul out of our Mumbai. Nariman House at Colaba, nobody had heard of existed, much less as a pilgrim centre for Jews, until the terrorists killed the harmless and friendly Rabbi and his wife there and orphaned their little son.

But it’s a year since then. And not unless you are the widow Kavita Karkare demanding to know what happened to your husband Hemant’s bullet-proof jacket, the widow Vinita Kamte struggling to discover the dying moments of your husband Ashok, the daughter Vaishali turning down the government compensation for your father Ombale... would you know what 26/11 really means.

Notwithstanding the tributes to the heroes and victims that make this page, the brave words by a regrouped police force that offer hope, the truth is the candles you light on the first anniversary of that dark and deadly day, the black ribbon that you tie in your hands are in memory of those who got killed... and they’re not because they died for us, but because they died instead of us.

Sometimes I wonder, if I am as safe as Kasab is in the Mumbai jail. But I also feel, that it is really stupid of me to think something like that, as in a democratic country like our India this bloody terrorist has got a fair trial, unlike it is in Pakistan. I also understand that it has taken quiet a long time, for the Indian judiciary to punish him and one cannot wait anymore to see this man being hanged. Many of us wonder as to when that day would finally arrive, when justice would be done. As it is said “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

Dont forget, one year after the incidents the masterminds are still free, people who have lost their families are still in pain.

Wo Kaatil Aaj Bhi Zinda Hai, Bharatma Hum Sharminda Hai...

Farewell to a wonderful friend, colleague and overall human being


Today is Vvaibhavs’ last day in Mastek. I am not very good with words especially in times like these, I want to tell Vvaibhav what a wonderful colleague and friend he is. In the seven months I knew him, he was always there to support others. He had a way of lifting your spirits when you needed it. It showed that he truly cared for the people around him.

I have a hard time saying goodbye, because I think saying Good Bye means Going away, and going away means forgetting. I am usually one of the last ones to leave a party (…I am nt a party animal, I rarely go to parties)and my “good byes” tend to turn into 20-minute long conversations(….some of my frnds calls me chit chat box). Perhaps, this is why I was not there in Vvaibhavs farewell party.

I won’t forget all of the valuable moments we spent together esp. in bus. We used to play Dumb Charades, and Vvaibhav is famous for giving famous weirdest home production movies like ‘Pappu Sapola’, ‘Basanti ki shaadi aur gabbar ka honeymoon’, ‘Aids wala darinda’, ‘Mugliyai chandal’ etc etc etc.

It is very hard to say good bye to you. But a farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends.

All the best for your future. Keep up the great work!!!

Cheers...

Happy Birthday Tussar...

Dear Tussar...
It's celebration time again,
a time to relish and double your joys,
making every passing moment of
your birthday a sweet memory.

Have a Marvellous Birthday.
Wish you all the happiness in the world...

Cheers :)

World Day for the prevention of Child Abuse

19 November is World Day for the prevention of Child Abuse.

Sexual abuse of children is frightening, upsetting, often unimaginable and incredible & an disgusting crime. While it's the moral obligation for adults to ensure children are protected, we remain silent. More often than not for plain selfish reasons. The discomfort caused if acknowledged, the denial that our children can be sexually abused, family reputation at stake, sheer innocence. Then there’s the quietness of the children. Because of the manipulation, ignorance, fear.

A silenced vulnerable child & a silent non-protective environment-working to an abuser’s advantage. Since usually victims are their relatives, neighbors, students, friends etc.

I saw these statistics on child abuse while surfing internet and I think it’s shocking!!!

It is not only figures such as 1 million children each year are forced into the sex trade, but it is also the abuse that surrounds us in our daily lives amongst people we know that we often tend to turn a blind eye to.
  • Most child abuse happens in the child’s home. It is therefore often unreported, unseen, and the children often remain silent, feeling shamed and guilty.

  • Of the rapes and sexual abuse reported of children under 12 years, 90% of the victims knew their perpetrator

  • Child abuse occurs at all socio-economic levels of society, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.

  • One third of abused and neglected children will go on to abuse and neglect their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.

Everyday...

Every day I think of you…
Every day you cross my mind…
Every day I see something that reminds me of you…
Every day I m missing you…
Every day I wish you were mine…
Every day I wonder what could have been…
Every day I think of why you did this?...
& Every day I m getting stronger…
Every day I m moving on…
But every day I’ll always miss you…

What I want?...


What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be essential and indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me.

Why I am feeling blissful?...


You know everything gives the impression of being strange when we start behaving like a stranger.


We are not talking from some weeks, I think it’s been a month and a half, but now as we started talking everything feels the same.

My heart can’t afford to be just friends...


My heart can’t afford to be just friends.

It's you **o*i . You're the one I talk and dream about all the time, the one I can't stop thinking about. The one that can make me laugh when I don't even want to smile, the one that can make me feel better in .001 micro seconds. It's you that I’m crazy about.

You don't realize how much it means to me when you sit with me or call me.

You know when you’re sitting on a chair and you lean back so you’re just on two legs then you lean too far and you almost fall over but at the last second you catch yourself? I feel like that around you all the time. I'd rather be standing outside in the freezing cold with you than to be warm in the arms of someone else.

I want you to be the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night and before I take my last gulp of air. Everyone wants to be remembered for something, I just want to be remembered by you.

Google cheats

Buddies n Butterflies…

This is ridiculous

After the Chinese demands for Arunachal Pradesh, Google now has started FOOLING Indians as well !!Google shows different maps to Indians and Chinese. In the Indian Version, it shows “Arunachal Pradesh” as a Disputed region (Not even a part of India) where as in the Chinese version, it shows Arunachal Pradesh as an Integral Part of CHINA!

Here are the snap shots of maps that I saw.

We are one in heart...

Received this poem from one of my colleague, I like this so I post it here.
I've made a vow, to no one but you
I pledge my love to forever be true
I'll take care of you and treat you right
I'll lay beside you all through the night
I'll feed you and clothe you and keep you warm
I'll hug you and kiss you and give shelter in the storm
I'll help you and guide you and clear a path
I'll protect you and shield you from an angry man's wrath
I'll listen to your problems help you solve them too
I'll make you a rainbow and let the sun shine through
I'll take your side even if you're wrong
Just to prove our love is strong
I'll plant you flowers and make them grow
They'll be a symbol of love that only we'll know
I'll whisper your name when no one is near
So low that only you can hear
You'll feel my love even if we're apart
You'll know that we are one in heart

Monday blues...

"Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives... & when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life."

OMG, I can relate to that quote. When I feel the creative impulse sparkling and bubbling up from within and I just ignore it, pushing it back down, I feel alive but anesthetized and numb. Comfortably numb (…Pink Floyd fans know what I mean). But when I obey my creative voice, make a date with it and draw, skect, paint or write, slowly the feeling comes back to that which was numb. It's mysterious and wonderful. Have you had that experience?

Be risky - it's Monday, what do you have to lose? Get lost in your creative voice today...

Cheers,

One Day You’ll Also Cry For Me

Do you remember all the times
When you would come to me in tears
Do you remember all the silly rhymes
I would say to hear your laughter cheer

Did you not love me
The way that I loved you,
Could you just not see
Didn’t you have just one clue

So now that I’ve come to grips
I simply must say,
When you cry do not expect my lips
To kiss the pain away

When your sad and blue
Don’t turn to look behind,
For I will no longer be there behind you
To make the sun come out and shine

I have but one last thing to say
And these are the words that will let it be,
Let it be what it was from the very first day,

When your tears are falling,Now Don’t Cry For Me...

Thoda wish karo…


Relationships are delicate. Unless you tend to them with a lot of love, care and attention, they may die sooner even before you realize. We wish our love to stay by our side forever but destiny may have something else in store. Those who are single may wish to fall in love and be in a relationship. The silver lining is wishes often do come true. All you have to do is wish. If you don’t wish, then how can you expect them to come true in the first place?....isliye thoda wish karo…

Can we love that too?

I remember sitting in my yoga class a light years back when our teacher Mrs. Philip invited us to close our eyes and entertain a romantic fantasy. She asked us to draw a picture in our minds of the perfect guy/ gal/ man or a woman, a person with whom we were in love, or had a crush on, or for whom we simply had a strong infatuation or for whom we are crazy. We were to sketch in our minds every last detail like their hair, their eyes, their lips, their shape, their eyebrows, their dimples, everything about them we found beautiful/ gorgeous/ pretty or attractive. She asked us to focus on how astonishing they were and to celebrate our love or emotion for them.

Done...

I imagined a girl in my mind and felt a sweltering/ searing/ sizzling pulse of warm affection, as I assume, was intended.

Then she said, ‘Now imagine the object of your affection...naked…. Without clothes.’

Ohh!!! Done…

The temperature in the room must have risen several Fahrenheit’s among the students. It couldn't get any better than this.

Finally, she said, ‘Now, I want you to picture this love of your life, in your mind's eye, naked and beautiful......on the toilet. I want you to picture them picking their nose and wiping the snot in an unseemly place. I want you to see them mining for earwax and looking at its texture. I want you to picture them urinating, listening to the pee as it tinkles, I want you to smell them passing gas in the most pungent/ strong sense, I want you to listen to them grunt, defecating in the loudest manner possible, dropping feces into the water below...’

I can't assure about anyone else in the room...but my perfect fantasy just turned to nightmare…I swear literally into a nightmare.

Then, pausing for effect, she concluded her experiment by saying, ‘Now, if you can still tell me you love them...then I believe you.’

Her point was well-taken. When we consider love, beauty, what is attractive in a person, it usually begins on the surface, how they look, whether clothed or even naked. Then, as we mature, we realize that the object of our love, our fantasy must go beyond the superficial to what's inside, their intelligence, personality, their emotional maturity and spirituality. But are these the only things that lie inside a person? Should these ghostly / insubstantial / ethereal qualities be the only reason for our love and intimacy? As my teacher helped us ponder: what about the physical-internal, both the pleasant and the not so pleasant? Can we love that too?

Thanks Mrs. Philip….

Wish for a love...


If you wish for love then you are not alone. Love is wished for by most people, no matter where they live or what language they speak or how much they earn or how educated they are. Love knows no boundaries of age, location or gender. In fact, some peoples around the world says love is equal to God. When you wish for love, it’s as if you wish for God. No one feels complete in life unless they are loved by someone or have someone to love. There is perhaps no other thing in this world that can make anyone as happy as love does.
With Love...

My Comment : KRK thrown out from Bigg Boss house.

Aaah…I darfted this after KRK removal from BB and forgot to post it.


The abusive, rude, foul, impatient, violent tempered, brash Kamal Khan a.k.a KRK (…as he pompously calls himself..lolzzz) has been expelled from the Bigg boss house. So if this guy was so violent (he threw a bottle at a fellow inmate Rohit Verma) and short tempered (…he kept flying off the handle at the least provocation) what was he doing in a show which requires him to share space with 12 other contestants?

Should not reality show contestants be made to go through some sort of test to gauge if they can be put in a community fish bowl? Even when we sets up a fish tank at home we are careful not to combine the aggressive fish with the mild ones for the fear of an assault. And KRK did just that!!! when he did that Bigg Boss promptly threw him out of the show. This is a classic case of throwing the baby out with the bath water.

Now the channel and the production house are laughing and crying at the same time. Laughing because KRK had until then single handedly upped the ratings of the show and crying because now the show may lose its punch. By merely getting rid of the culprit/ offender does it absolve all concerned from having let loose a nutty man in the house? Since the rule book says that anyone who gets abusive or violent will be expelled from the house why in the first place invite such an individual to play the game? …[Lets see what will happen to Vindu Dara Singh].

Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti !!!...


Today is Guru Nanak Jayanthi. I extend to you all, my heartfelt wishes for the same. Guru Nanak Jayanti is the birthday of the first Sikh Guru, ‘Guru Nanak Dev ji’, and one of the most sacred festivals in India. The 10 Sikh Gurus were responsible for shaping the beliefs of the Sikhs. Their birthdays, known as Gurupurabs, are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs. The Gurupurab is celebrated every year with great pomp and show across the globe.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji (the First Guru, the founder of Sikhism) was born on 14 April 1469.The birthday of Guru Nanak Sahib falls on Kartik Poornima, i.e., the day of the full moon in the month of Kartik. The celebration is generally similar for all Gurpurabs; only the hymns are different. In India especially in Punjab, people comes from different states to celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Birthday with religious fervour at Golden temple in Amritsar. All the Gurudwaras will be light up decoratively and people will come to worship waheguru on the auspicious occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa….Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh….
