I was reading a article on Nu’s Blog, on the good old DD (doordarshan days).. I had these few pics to remind of the good old nostalgic days

here are a few that go WAY back…  Now make sure you comment about how many of these you remember .. lets see how far you can go .. I feel so old I remember all I guess …

1. Gabbar ki asli pasand Glucose-D

2. Wills peene wallon ki baat hi kuch aur hai 🙂  (look at kabir bedi so young)…

3. Rangeen tv and the front loading VHS players … and the ones which opened up..
4. Brylcreem Kishore Da…

5. Mere matlab ke Ad.. BAGPIPER hic hic hic

6. Campa Cola

7. Cinthol nahane ka sabun …

and so many moreeeeeeeeeeee  maybe next time…

I am sure most of my article are RANTS on stuff , I was wanting to write these few line since last night when I entered my house and switched on the TELE for the news, The first news on a BBC1, and ITV1.. the headlines was Common Wealth games, along with the pictures of what had happened, Other channels are showing how dirty places are, the threat of Dengue fever.. The pictures are splashed all over

The bridge collapsed

The Village in which the Athletes were to stay… (with a picture of the model room SUPPOSED to be for ready)

The Stadiums

The interview with people who have been shifted and removed

All in all, it was shameful , what India has done has bring SHAME to our great country.. Will someone answer or be held accountable.. 3 years we had known about the games , work did not start till last year… How much or how long will we carry on living the shameless life that we are living…

I am glad the English athletes have pulled out, and the Scottish team has postponed leaving for India. I really wish these games get cancelled… Even if Delhi put up a great show the best show ever in the games Will it be WORTH it after all the Sleaze that has befallen OUR country.

Even if the games go on, what good will it be if the Athletes pull out, the ones whom people would have come to watch …

I have already cancelled my tickets to come, not worth spending so much money when anybody who is into sports here asks me , how much money will be enough for the politicians… I had no answer…

The Sports village is a embarrassment so much so that athletes interviewed from around the world are saying they don’t want to go and sleep in such accommodations.. Look at South Africa or any other 4th 5th 6th world country they would do a proper job.

Is there no limit to our shamelessness, My question to all who reading this ,

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ?

WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN ?

are you still wanting for the games to go on … The countries or the athletes who have pulled out of the even did they do the right thing… ?

WHY CANT WE FOR ONCE DO SOMETHING THE RIGHT WAY ?

All these officials, Can i please ask them HOW MUCH MONEY will be enough to stop them taking more,

HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH ?

SM sums it quiet nicely… I would also like all those people who have been telling me or emailing me about how I am looser-traitor , living in Uk, etc all the ones who are ready to give there lives for the country , what are they going to do about this.. are they still going to just say the same stuff they have been saying all along which is one line “I love my country ” .. also… How much more can we take

I was talking to my brother in Delhi a few hours ago, his words are that majority of the SANE people wish the games get cancelled, The educated people understand this They dont want it to happen, the Common man on the streets Dont want it.. So much money has been wasted… Yet again and the DELHI DARBAR has no answers.

SHOULD WE INDIANS BOYCOTT THE GAMES ?

I was watching a movie where there was a dialogue, that got me thinking.. Which category do we fall in, been reading a lot of blogs by the Patriotic INDIANS, wrote some details on my blog too got a few comments some with me some against me .. which is good, reading all those has made we write the following as to what i think or feel..

We the citizens fall into two categories Indians or Bharatiya.. the reason why I say this is because of the growing gap between the rich and poor. Also, the agenda of DELHI DARBAR is so what questionable,

Do we think the common man is on the agenda of INDIA ? Hence my feelings on Two

INDIA or BHARAT

Many people have said that India  is going leaps and bounds , the astonishing success India has had , all the progress we have made but have we brought the BHARAT with us Or in the zeal to progress and make waves we have forgotten the BHARAT that we started with.

It seems that like the british ruled us and the famous Dialogue that was used so much then “Muthi Bhar Gore, lakhon croron Bhartiyon pe raaj kar rahe the”.. (A handful of britishers are ruling crores of bhartiye) Well

Will I be wrong that today the same dialogue is true too, since a hand ful of families are ruling the billion strong citizens.

I don’t have too much knowledge of other states but look in Punjab the RULING family, why is it that this family is become richer and richer while the whole of punjab is becoming poorer.

There is no water in the state, no electricity, what are the farmers to do, the farmers represent the BHARAT still oppressed by the rich and powerful the people who are now Indians.

There is this beautiful song by a punjabi singer I will put the lyrics and then translate as best in English it sums up everything about the state the difference between India and BHARAT…

Main mitti de naal mitti hona chhunda haan
tainu mitti naalon allergy hai mutiyare             (I want to return to dust,                                                                      but you are allergic to mud my love)

Tuhade karma ch shayad pakke vehde ne
inne maade v nahin saade Dhema Ghare     
                                        (You have Solid houses with courtyards 
                                         but ours made of mud are still very strong)

Tuhadi rakhi kardi POLICE gypsiyaan la la ke
saade munde pehre launde ne aap vichare  
                                           (For your protection Police roams around in gypsies ,
                                            But our own poor youngsters protect us )

Tuhadi billiyan tv ac de which vekhdiyaan
saade dhupan de which marde BALAD vichare 
                                                (The cats in your house watch TV in a AC Room
                                                 Our OX die in merciless Sun)

Saadi hik ton jehdiyaan nehraan langh ke aundiyaan ne
Tuhade lawn nu paani taan lagda hai naare     
                                               (We allow The Rivers to flow on our land ,
                                                Hence you  can water your lawns )

Je kite muh Modte Jattan Ne Ehna Nehraan de
Body ho joogy smelly sun lishkdiye naare     
                                            (If the farmer decided to change the river flows,
                                             your souls and body will start to SMELL)
 
 
So what category do you fall in Are you Indian or from Bharat………?

What has all this success done to us , The India that has gone so far the people or the so called Indians in my view have lost all there values.. lets take the example of RELATIONS..

Look at what is happening to Relations.. A boy and girl fall in love, stay together for 2 – 3 -4 years and then decide to move away, what the hell is that , In the BHARAT days hardly this happened Love was so pure and people were committed , they did not have plans to fall in love use someone and then carry on.. Love has become a charade now.. We fool ourselves to think that it exists WHERE IS IT SHOW ME.. the first thing that comes to a Boys mind is how to bed the girl and the same for the girl.. Look around yourselves how many examples can you find of such relations

Families:- The bharat days had joint families , so many people living under the same roof, true there were arguments fights and all sorts of things but the love , respect was there , My cousins Call me VEERJI and whatever the situation I can say this with pride that they still don’t speak in front of me, I may be wrong or whatever they still don’t say anything, I am so confident that I can go and slap them even , they wont say a word this doesn’t mean they are weak or what , this is called Respect Or as in Hindi NAJAR KI SHARAM.. where the hell is that now, with the so called India, People are moving out, so many fights over properties, land disputes, The young people don’t bother about the elders there own parents ..
We hear stories all around us how the kids have come and settled in western countries and then asked there parents to come over to BABY SIT. How they are treated like servants here …

I dared not think like that about my parents , My dad would have come and Slapped and beaten the shite out of me if i had done that, that does not mean he did not love me

Honesty is another thing, People were honest in the Bharat days, but look now where has all that honesty gone , being honest in today’s day is a crime, I have had so many examples to prove it,

If you are honest you are thought to be a fool.
You love someone with honesty you are a fool
you care for someone with honesty you are a fool
you do anything with honesty you are a fool

What has all this success brought for us other then misery, if and only IF we had moved together taking along everyone with us , along with our ethics and morals we would have been really successful in calling ourself INDIA… Now we live in a era where there are MORE Bharatiyas then Indians.. and believe me the Indians who have gone miles ahead they will have to STOP , wait for the others to come along, even need be take a step backwards or two.. Only then will we be successful else we are doomed …

We have become so mean and selfish , we hardly give a damn about what other might fell, even if we know that we may hurt the other we still carry on with our antics, where are those family values, the Cultural values , the rich heritage we had, We have indeed lost all of them .. to each his own as I have heard so many times.. What will it take or how much hard it is for us to bring a smile on someone …

Will it bring us down if we go slightly out of our way to see a smile on someone…

I guess as i have mentioned a lot many times I am but a emotional fool without any sense, who cares what i say …..

So to all those INDIANS … I am better off being from the BHARAT that I am from all the best to you all .. God bless

Update:-

PS:- Also TRY to Figure out which one is MY entry … 🙂 But keep it to yourself , just in case it becomes cheating he he he he … or email me at mannbik@gmail.com

Recently There is new thing that has started on indiblogger.in called  indivine, where you can submit your posts and readers vote for you.

As far as my knowledge says or what i can gather, its upto the readers to read the article and then Vote or Not vote for it. I am a member of this site, I also post my articles for this.

What is irritating now is all these emails that i am getting from people to come and vote for them.

Hello Why should I vote ? I will read the article and Then VOTE if I like the article.

Its becoming like politicians in Indian politics , the moment we post a article start sending emails to ask for Vote, I dont mind getting a email from people introducing there article or blog to me, But Yeah I do mind being asked for Votes.

If your article is good it will get Votes.

Another Thing I will mention is when you come to my blog , and go to comment Please make sure you read the article, So you can comment on that whatever it is good or bad, I dont mind.. but Please dont ask for my Vote as a comment on my article.

I find it rude that you want my vote when you dont have the decency of saying anything about what I have written.

Is there again a RAT RACE to see who has most votes , irrespective of wether its a good article or a crap one.

I thought I was the only one greedy about comments etc but my god. I dont think i have emailed anyone for votes , and if they have not voted you ask them again to vote for you, I got a few emails for the same, NO PROBLEM, But then today I got three emails within 2-3 hours telling me I havenot voted.. Well the Reason why i have not voted is quiet simple.. I did not like your article do you get the message..

To top it up if I have said I will vote then I WILL, give me a chance before you email again saying you cant see the vote. I know you get 2 points for my vote, But please I will vote after reading the article not for the sake of it.  If you dont have my Vote then it means I did not like your article SIMPLE. No hard feelings you can come and put a comment on my articles saying you dont like them, I dont mind.

PS:- Update :- Hi all I am not against Promoting your ARTICLe , yes please do , send a email to me that you have written a article, I will VISIT it and read it and If i like I will VOTE.. DONT PRESSURISE ME TO VOTE FOR YOU.. I will just vote if thats what you want carry on asking then…

Send emails to everyone, paste it on facebook, put posters around , do anything I dont care BUT ONLY to say you have written a article its at this page THATS IT.. Rest leave to the reader to vote or not to VOTE .. Thats all i ask
