It’s been a long time since I posted something here as I have been struggling with some issues, that don’t seem to leave me alone but more on that later, don’t want to dampen the Christmas cheer but the recent events that have taken place in our neighbouring nation have given us enough to think. I don’t have words to describe the atrocity that has been committed against the little kids, Why it was done, WHO in their sane mind even thought about doing the act leave the planning part aside.

To call these people HUMAN is insulting itself, I can understand all this Jihad, fighting the oppressor, fighting for a cause etc etc BUT in my little mind I can’t understand what CAUSE IT IS? that says to attain it you have to kill innocent people … To stoop to such a level that you have had to kill little kids, Were you not man enough to take one someone your own SIZE.. Even with the amount of weaponry you had in your hands.

Where in ANY religion it says one has to go ,Kill innocent and that too little children, Rather it is said KIDS are God’s face, so how can it be right.

I fail to understand why are you people hell-bent on killing innocent humans, people whom you don’t know, people who you have never seen in your life, what in the world have they done to be treated by you like that, that you don’t give two hoots about them, Fine in your own twisted mind you have your own reasons or Evil thrill you guys get in killing an innocent human BUT pray let us know what they are.

I have read a lot of posts on what has happened, a lot of people like me have a lot to say and lot of blame game going on , But What makes me angry is why are we blaming others , It is
US the people, who are to be blamed, we have brought all this upon ourselves

The reason I say this is that in spite of knowing

1. Where the training centres are
2. Where these evil people are hiding
3. Where they get there weapons to do the mass murders
4. Who supports them

Nothing has ever been done, I heard the leaders in Pakistan speak the same words, our leaders spoke in India. The mentality of the so-called leaders is exactly the same irrespective of the country they live or lead. The same leaders were shouting at top of the voice after the Mumbai attack how their land is not being used to plan atrocities against neighbouring country. I hope they do the something now to make the world a better safer place, IF we can… as I think and feel that the damage is already done , it’s going to be so very difficult to hold the flow now. I only hope and wish innocent are not killed.

We the people found it amusing when the same atrocities were committed in other countries against other races or religions, because they were the KAFIRS, But sadly it is true with the saying “You reap what you SOW“… for years the leaders of our neighbouring nation has been sheltering the same people who are now doing the same against their own people.

I remember writing a letter to the Terrorist a few years back , where I pleaded them to stop killing innocent people and gave them enough options whom to kill otherwise, yet in all these madness it’s still the innocent who die ALWAYS. Never have I read news that a leader shot dead.

How hard can it be to find these bad people, if the leaders make up their minds and genuinely want to find them, We have read how the Intelligence agencies are involved one way or the other in helping these criminals, in the name of patriotism but is it REALLY that, what has all this patriotism brought so far, in all these years other than bloodshed and innocent dead. Where was all this intelligence when the little kids were being shot?

In my OWN TWISTED MIND, I want to ask the intelligence agencies was any of their relatives or family kids shot in the mayhem. Would they have done things differently if they had known it’s their own kin being targeted, or will they do something now.

It is sad what happened, Very sad, my heart wept hearing the kid say he doesn’t want to go to school anymore and the next moment it was filled with ANGER hearing that the Taliban have issued another threat that they will kill more if kids went for education.

We the human-kind are doing great, we are evolving, we have gone leaps ahead in this or that… YES we have but all this has it in any way changed the ways of life for a common man, I doubt it… it’s the common man if changed will change the ways of a country , the rich getting richer , the corrupt getting corrupter is not going to change anything …

I hope the leaders of our neighbouring country don’t put another of those committee’s to look into the security, to find reasons, to find the culprits… That does not work. It’s just a farce what has any of these committee’s ever done for the nation… other than use up the TAX money and waste them too. Time for action what action is taken depends upon how the people feel…

My heart-felt condolences to the people who were affected by this , and also I would like to say SORRY TO ALL THAT WERE AFFECTED BY THIS , SINCE AS A HUMAN, I ALONG WITH EVERYONE DID NOTHING ..

No wonder these people who bring about so much damage get away with what they want to do, when they want to, how they want to do… This will always continue till we wake up… I don’t know what will it take to wake us all, or when that will happen but I know one thing that when we ALL GET UP, STAND TOGETHER , All these terrorists will disappear… because after all they are amongst us, the enemy is within us all… we just need to open our eyes and find out who they are..

I got the following message on Whatsapp today

“Pakistan had made those terrorists, given birth to those terrorists, given shelter to those terrorists. These were own made terrorists of Pakistan. Those terrorists were made to spread terrorism in whole of world including India. And India is effected nation from terrorism by Pakistan. I do have sympathy but not of that much that we console and have sorrow of that much depth. After all how those terrorists were in Pakistan? Because they were under the protection and shelter of Pakistan. So we need not to be so sad on happened incident of enemy state Pakistan.”

To which I replied :-

Capture2

Capture3

Such are what we have become .. NO wonder so much hatred and atrocities are common in today’s modern world..

TO THE INDIAN MAN

Tags: ,

Imagine a Scenario , you bought some shoes from a well-known popular showroom, it is but OBVIOUS that you will probably know what size you are before buying, I am also assuming you Like the colour of the shoe, you like the PRICE too and basically you Like the shoe.

Good shops here in uk do give you the comfort of 14 days money back guarantee, some even give 30 days, provided we return them in same condition they were bought, BUT this is not hard and fast rule , I have actually a few times used a product , found it’s not for me , taken it back to the shop, it has been either exchanged for a new product or in some case money given back or given vouchers to be used on anything at a later stage, I have no qualms on having those because that would mean at least my money will be worth spent on something that I really want.

So having that theory in mind, you may read on :) A few weeks back, I had my cousin come over with his wife and kids for the weekend, during the conversation my nephew said he wanted a cricket bat as his old one had chipped , so we went to a famous sports shop, to have a look. We were looking for one when I heard a bit of commotion , knowing me and my inquisitiveness I walked over to see what the commotion was ..

A Young man about 30 – 35 years old , well-built, flashy glasses on was having an argument with one of the girls at the cash machine, I went about looking for my stuff ignoring but that did not last long as the voices started growing louder, I heard the girl saying “Sir Please don’t talk to me like that ” , “Sir Please talk to the manager”.. But this gentleman was getting more and more aggressive.. Mean while my nephew came-over with his bat, so we stood in the queue.. waiting for the commotion to get over.. a couple of guys were in front of us.

The manager also had come by that time , asking this gentleman to come to the next till so the girl could carry on serving the other customers, while he sorted out the problem, But this man would not have it. He was getting more and more aggressive and at one stage threw the box he had in his hands at the poor girl with some choice EXPLETIVES, The manager tried to calm the guy saying there are Kids around so not use such a language BUT this guy just would not have it.

What had happened was this gentleman had bought a pair of shoes that were on clearance sale with almost 80% off, paid about £15/- , had worn them for a few times as the sole of the shoe suggested, it had been more than 30 days.. YET he wasn’t happy with them so now wanted to return and get his money back.. The manager was trying to convince him that the store only had 14 days return, that too with original packaging etc. But nothing would convince him, he became ruder and ruder , at one stage almost went up to the face of the manager yelling.

Even UK is becoming like India it seems , there was a queue of people waiting to be served , they could all see the girl at the counter distressed, Some had kids with them, YET NO ONE said a word they were all SMILING , waiting to be served so they could get out of the shop, I HATE SUCH PEOPLE. They are the worst lot, the ones who just Look and Do nothing. No wonder the world is in such a mess as people wont do anything, They just ignore as things don’t concern them. But sooner or later it all comes to our doorstep. If we act in the start things would never deteriorate.

Maybe I am an IDIOT or a moron but sadly that’s the way I am, I went up to the guy and talked in Punjabi, Telling the guy to keep it low, calm down, kids are nearby and they don’t want to hear the choice words he was using, He probably thought I was some uneducated person and shouted back to me , to stay out and mind my own business ( I just had an old Kurta and track suit on, so probably he thought I was just another Indian trying to show off), Anyway I ignored him once and asked him politely again this time in English , To please calm down , think of the kids around in the shop, he should at least mind the language.

BUT IT seems some people just wont take a hint , since ME, the manager and the counter girl were being so polite to him , he thought he was being a hero in the shop, continued saying stuff. I had no other option but to identify myself and Warn him one more time to Mind the language , as you can’t use such language with young Kids around. I have never seen someone’s EYES pop out so much, the moment he saw my identification his face went white, lost that loud voice he had, I wish I could have taken a PIC, it was like a wet cat coming out of a pool BUT HE did have the audacity to tell me I was not on duty so I should not interfere, I had only one answer to that , He can SUE ME ..

You know , when you open a coke can and pour it in a glass it suddenly shoots up, the bubbles etc, but leave it a second and all calms down the bubbles vanish, Well so is what happened with this gentleman , he was suddenly very calm and could not wait to get out of the shop, the manager however offered to give him vouchers for the amount he had spent, but he was too much in a rush to suddenly get out.

WHAT A FOOL HE MADE OF HIMSELF, I mean the reason I am writing this article is not to show off what I did, this is normal day-to-day for me so nothing to show off, BUT I was amazed at a well dressed person who looked educated behave this way, that too for a paltry sum of 15 pounds, I mean what is more important your self-esteem , respect or getting the money. Had he requested or talked politely I am sure the store would have had no problem refunding the money or giving him vouchers. SO why behave like that ..

Does it mean if someone is talking nicely to us we should get this rude , just to show others what a big man he was ..

If he was such a man he should have taken me on, as he was threatening to slap the manager , he should have said the same to me .. Why are people becoming such idiots that it does not matter to them what others will say, I am sure I will recognise him all the time so will others, they will just laugh at him. I know I can be arrogant but I do make sure that I don’t offend others just for the sake of it or knowingly.

Is it such a MAN thing to talk to rudely, does it give some sort of kick. kids were with me otherwise this gentleman would have spent some time in a cell trying to figure out was it worth the hassle.

Hello Everyone, I been missing in action again. But thank you all for keeping me in your prayers and asking about me. I am recovering perfectly fine and doing great as always. :) Thank you for all the emails and messages. I am truly blessed God has been kind to me for providing such lovely people around me.

and hey all those who did not realise I was gone Dont worry you have not missed anything he he he he he :) so don’t beat yourself for not worrying about me HA HA HA HA HA :) I am sure you have more important things to worry about than a measly mortal MOI!!!! :) he he he he Anyway

I have been very lazy and not done the Awards that were forwarded to me by some of the lovely bloggers and they are pending from almost 2012, So I thought I should take them up and complete them, also lately all I have been doing is putting pictures this is a change from them too ..

So Today a liebster award .. let me show off it ..

liebster-award

Here are the rules:
A. Thank the blogger who gives it to you.
B. Answer the eleven questions he/she asks.
C. Nominate eleven bloggers with less than 500 followers.

So let me thank all , Thank you so much Tandooripanipurilife , Chipmunk , DwindowSeat,Alka Narula Its been a long long time Since I got an award yayyyyyyyyyyyy, I feel honoured. Thank you. I am blessed to have such lovely human beings who are so nice and genuine people. Thank you all for being so good to me, God bless you all and here’s wishing all your dreams always come true..

1.
Tandooripanipurilife Gave me the following questions to Answer..

Here, we go!!

1. What made you start blogging?How is blogging different than keeping a diary for you or is it the same?

I need to thank a Lovely human being who made me start the blog a few years ago now, I did write a diary earlier and YES i do think blogging and writing a diary are two very different things, First of all a diary is very personal as no one gets to read what it says, while a blog is read by so many and all who read make up their own image of who you are. Which can end up good or bad. Also blogging actually helps as people who genuinely read you will hopefully give you some advice , which will help one in becoming a better human being.,

2. Do you have a pet? If yes, which one? And if not, why?

Well I love pets, back home in india , I have a few and I miss them like anything. Here in UK I got some fish and that’s about it , I did have a dog called rocky , who I kept for a few weeks but gave it back as I felt I was being horrible to him. I left for work early morning and came back late night, Rocky had to remain alone which was not fair on him.

3. Which city do you think is the best to settle down in India? And why?

Well off course MY CITY, CHANDIGARH.. the best place on earth for sure where my Mom and All my friends Live. I have lived my childhood and my youth in that city, have had the best time of my life in there. It has been beautifully planned, big clean, broad roads. The rock garden, the Rose garden, the lake, the movie theaters, the eating places, “Hot Millions”, “Tehal Singh” , The “Golden rooster” in sector 8, missing the lovely chicken soup. OH GOD now I have got all emotional

4. What is the one thing that you ordered in a restaurant and it turned out to be totally yuck and expensive?

Oh this happened this week, Went to Chiquito’s and WHAT A MISTAKE IT WAS, I had gone to visit my cousin and we planned to go for dinner to this Mexican place,Had to book a seat, the lady on the phone told us that the heating was off, so it might be a bit cold, That did not bother us much as it was not that cold, We went and made ourself comfortable. Now I do eat a lot so I ordered something that sounded HUGE and also it was the most expensive in the menu :) I can be greedy I know. So I ordered this Chicken & Chorizo Skewer, for almost £15 pounds.. which boasted of “Succulent chicken breast skewered with chorizo and mixed peppers and served with lime & tequila sauce” before that we had a sharing platter of nachos and I ordered a Margarita while waiting for the food.. Mine was supposed to be a sizzler too, so out it came and the sizzling sound made my mouth water .. at the thought of having this whole thing ALONE.

the girl put the dish in front of me reminding me to be careful of not touching the metal plate that was very hot.. so picture this a Hot plate with TONS of Onions sliced.. sizzling, and On top of that were TWO KEBABS oh yes it was nothing but TWO kebabs with chicken pieces and different coloured Peppers..

20130301-224809

I took One bite , it was COLD.. it was like they had taken two kebabs from a freezer, put it in microwave for a couple of minutes , put them on a HOT plate with lots of onions JOB DONE.. The worst ever dish I have had and PAID for it tooooo … Never again , I left half of it on the plate.. then went to a local Indian Punjabi pub ordered a Chicken Tikka with a Nann .. that cost me £3/-.. Yummyliscious that filled my stomach :) Nothing can beat that now can it ..

5. If you see your enemy (or simply somebody you dislike) in a helpless situation, will you go forward and help them? Or leave them and enjoy mercilessly?

I think I know for a fact that I am an Idiot and it has been proven a lot many times , hardly learn from my mistakes. I would probably go and help them out . But I am one who never forgets what they did to me and I will never be friends again with them no matter what ..

6. Have you ever been caught by your parents doing something totally inappropriate for your age?

Inappropriate well , how can someone says its inappropriate because if I did anything like this , then I did it because I thought it to be appropriate.. :). Although I must say I have a long list , I have done a lot of stupid things. I have had a drink or two and got caught.. I had had a fight with someone and got caught.. I remember one incident one of the Teachers had refused to fill up my lecture’s in second year and we had to have 75% attendance to get the roll number, I had requested the teacher to help me out , but he would not budge .. So we declared a strike in college and I remember Walking into lecture rooms asking everyone to Vacate the college as We had called a Strike.

As I was going out .. in walks my Father with his friend who was My English teacher and Saw me Shouting at the students ..

it was an embarrassing moment as I was supposed to be a good boy at home :) he he he he

7. What is that one thing that you criticize publicly, but do the same in private?

hmmmm .. I am not sure. I probably do a lot But I do my best to do what I say .. and I do wish god gives me the strength to do it all the time ..

8. Do you like water sports? Which one?

I LOVE THEM.. I have done a lot now, Jet ski ( Oh I have an experience in that, I had gone to Australia , gold coast where me, my brother-in-law and two kids went for a jet ski, one child with me and the other with him, we ere enjoying so much riding the waves , etc etc , when all of it finished as we were heading back to park the Ski, my nephew says , MAMU let me touch the water and he bent over, his hand did not reach the sea so I bent to the side a bit more, The next moment We were both in the water with the SKI on top of us .. As we came up, all I could hear was the little guy shouting SHARK SHARK he he he he .. so we managed to climb up the ski but to our bad luck when I tried getting up because of my weight (OVER WEIGHT) we went down again ) … he he he he

Speed boats, Scuba dive.. it is FUN

9. Have you ever thought (or actually did ) of harming somebody very badly in order to get back at them? How?

Yepp .. when I was growing up college time was the time of gangs and trying to be the strongest group in college so we have had a few major fights etc.. I have been hospitalised a couple of times with stab wounds , broken leg .. but then those days are long gone I have grown up now well so I think :)

10. Do you fart and behave like the other person is guilty of the crime?

Oh yes.. have you used the Fart balloon.. it is fun in a crowd you press that balloon and it makes that funny noise, suddenly there is an odd silence :) he he he Yes I am bad like that.

11. Have you ever been caught by the police ( or worst locked up)? For what reason?

Zip World offers a unique range of adventures in the heart of Snowdonia.

This is about more than a Mile long Zip and one can reach speed up to 100 miles per hour.. The weather changed very quickly when we went , it was nice and sunny but then cloud came.

The Photographs have not come out good because we were all doing it and no one taking pics .. Got a couple of shots I hope they are good enough although I must say the experience was Worth it .. Although very expensive
