Ready for Summers

Bank holiday long weekend Well spent… Now I need a week off to help my back recover 🙂

The rewind button on the different music apps makes one think if we can have a rewind button in life too.. They do say that Hindsight is a boon, But sometimes the same hindsight also shows us what a prick we have been .. the concept of WHAT IF .. comes into action.

What if 2013 did not come, or what if the decision one took was a different one, BUT then everyone also says Destiny ..What has to happen will happen no matter what we do. So the decisions made would have been made irrespective of what the hindsight tells us now.

Very confusing, recently I was so fed up of everything that was going on around me that I thought of rewinding back the clock , So I went to a couple of places for 2 days only to try to relive the time that has gone back. It was not the same but I did have a smile for a few hours on my face.

Sometimes we make dreadful and very very wrong decisions, the worst thing is those decision can’t be taken back and we have to live our entire life with them, the clocks cant to rewound , whats done is done, friends turn to foes, people we love turn to people who hate us.   I do wish that there is a way in this world where we can make things right after they have been completely destroyed by us only.

If someone else has destroyed those it probably is easy to forget or at least live with the hate we have for them, but what if the one who has destroyed it is you , yourself. What do you do..  I know many people say that they don’t remember or have moved on, But I for one have not been able to forgive myself. I know I have done wrong VERY WRONG, how do we make it right.   If we had the opportunity to tap that Rewind button then I would have surly done it by now.

So I spent a couple of days last week roaming on the streets, trying to freshen up the memory of the not so distant past, it is still as if it was yesterday, God what a fool I would make of myself getting excited over Eating those masala Corn, one gets in cinema halls, or eating the lovely chicken in a restaurant, Riding a auto-rickshaw, looking at a Enfield bike and shouting ohhh “BULLET”…

I have always maintained that if I was to live my life all over again , I would do the same , make the same mistakes because I am what I am — (Good-Bad-Ugly) because of those mistakes or decisions… But as with everything else Exceptions are always there, I too have one which I would not want to repeat, this will probably haunt me for the rest of my life but the damage has been done , I dont see any way how it can be rectified.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.……………..

The rewind button …………

 

 

PS:- My apologies for not answering to the comments on previous post , and also not visiting all the lovely blogs. I will do that Soon.

Terrorist have struck again, Killing so many innocent people.  Again this day freedom and everything else along with it came under attack from fanatic people. I am still wondering what religion teaches all this hatred and killing of people. Who is that person who is spreading these teachings.  This time people in London had to face an atrocity which cant be defined,  I hope and wish all bloggers speak against this evil that has happened. In today’s day and age one can die if they criticize one religion but killing of innocent people, hijacking , murdering innocent KIDS who are supposed to be God’s face is STILL RIGHT… Such a barbaric attack which is a threat to the values and freedom of human beings.

My heart goes out to the victims,  No religion teaches killing of innocent people yet time and again in the name of religion so many innocent have been killed.

My heart goes out for those who have suffered,  and those who have lost their loved ones to this madness, nothing ever can justify the murders. No doubt this act has been religiously motivated I can’t see any other reason behind it ,

Which GOD has ever preached that killing of innocent is right.

In the after math I found some disturbing events, Media which is supposed to be responsible does this look like responsible, before the terrorist was identified they put up this tweet, to which i replied… 

both

@nieuwsblog could not even bother to reply back or take back the words, its all marked under one ASIANS. ()

Let me tell you @nieuwsblog  I am a SIKH and an ASIAN but I am not a TERRORIST…

Well done to  for the way they reacted. I just hope and pray that we can live in a world where there is  Love for all, hatred for none  .

Instead of focusing on things that did not happen let us try to learn from what happened, It was great to see people rushing towards the victims to help them or give first aid, the response from the armed police and other agencies was commendable, make me feel safer.   Let us get together and praise those who did there best to help others in a crisis. If we all combine and get together defeating Terrorism will be so much easier.

Media needs to be more responsible and not put up tweets etc like the one above, without making sure what the truth is , the moment that Tweet by @nieuwsblog came out there were so many to follow, This in turn causes more issue’s because Every ASIAN is viewed with suspicious eyes which can never help in building up a stronger nation.

It is a shame that some out there are trying to take some mileage and usual pointing fingers which is not going to solve anything, hopefully the UK Govt. will take some hard steps to make sure such incidents are not repeated again.

We who have left our own countries and come to settle abroad need to make sure that we respect the ways of the nation , the nation that is providing for us given us opportunities to have a comfortable life, if we have our own personal problems than yes maybe we should go back to the countries where we think we will be better of.

I have been trying to book some tickets on-line recently  and realized that it is becoming a real challenge to book tickets on-line or maybe its my age :). People say that on-line booking is very easy , it also is the new trend but there are some aspects of on-line booking I just don’t understand..

The first being What is this new thing you have to do.. Type a PHRASE or what they Call CAPTCHA , it’s like a challenge or  some sort of literacy test that you have to go through before you can actually go on to book your ticket, Look at the pictures and select a few with common themes, or a collection of letters hiding behind each other, as if we are playing hide and seek game. ..

So you have to copy that word in a new text box exactly same, you copy it – you press the OK button – it comes back saying NO .. they don’t match.. TRY AGAIN..  someone like me gets stuck on that page for half an hour , so much waste of time for a damn ticket which is supposed to be on-line the fastest mode of booking tickets.

What gets me more is when it comes up with all these options or Suggestions , especially with a slogan People who bought this also searched for this etc etc, I mean how does it matter to me what people searched on, none of my business. All I want to do is book or buy a product on-line, Why do I need to know about other stuff, If I want than I will go to their website or search for them.

Another thing that makes me cross is the address page,  You have to fill in your name your surname your first line of address etc etc, the fun starts when you reach the last column that says COUNTRY..  You press the drop down button it has hundreds of countries (Have you noticed how many names there are)…

Since I live in England I have a real battle because you go down the line to find the country called England, it’s not there 🙂  I try for Britain or  great Britain that is also not there , I have to scroll down to the bottom to find united kingdom, Why do I need to do that I mean is it not common sense that when I am logging into a website which has a web-address of lets say ABCDEFG.co.uk in the end, then that .co.uk is a BIG HINT to tell that there is a high chance of me living in UK, so why is that box not auto populated with UNITED KINGDOM, and if I have to change , I can always press that drop down button and change.

The other day I did a search for cinemas in Leicesterit brought me list of cinemas in Leicester, I isolated to a cinema near me Leicester again when I tried booking and putting the address the country drop-down had every country , NOW tell me who in their SANE mind will be coming from  INDIA or Afghanistan to watch a movie in Leicester surely the country in the list should be the local country, I mean I have selected a local cinema in Leicester which is in England and the first country that comes is Angola or Afghanistan so who is sitting in Angola early in the morning and saying  “hmmmmmmmmm  I’m thinking… I am going to watch Kong Skull Island in Leicester today, because I  am so sick of my local multiplex cinemas.. I will go and watch a movie in Leicester and this is for an afternoon show today at 2:30 p.m. Can anyone get there from Angola for 2:30 p.m. Show today ”

Anyway so once you put your address , next thing you have to do is put your e-mail address on the booking form not once but TWICE.. as they want you to confirm the e-mail address that I have typed … HELLLO I know what my e-mail address is, I’ve been using it for the last 15 years why are you testing me on my own e-mail address..

You have not asked me to confirm anything else, You did not ask me to confirm my name, my address but I know why they want you to confirm e-mail address.. More on that in the next post ..

 

I just wanted to post something its been so many days since I last posted .. How have you guys been

I have not posted for a long time , in-spite of it all being a holiday season I been so busy with everything, yet it feels i have not accomplished anything, I must have driven more than a few thousand miles and flown at least half a dozen times for something or the other, I bet the lady at the check-in desk for emirates probably recognize my face by now at the airport.

Thankfully I have a day off today so I thought I will post, something that I have observed even though I worked at the airport for a decade it did not hit me till now I guess I am a slow observer or learner I should say ..

You know we have a duty-free at almost all the airports which although sounds like a bargain but I have my doubts I am sure the duty-free is not that cheap as we think it is, anyway it’s not the prices I want to discuss.. Right so you buy some items and go to the check out, where the smiling lady at the till asks for your BOARDING PASS…

I mean you have to prove that you are flying on an aeroplane even though you are in the airport..

NOW why would they ask for the boarding pass are they trying to figure out that we should not be in that place, or have we just barged in to the duty-free shop.

Are they suggesting that I got up early morning at a ridiculous time to make it to the airport , parked my car at the car park at ridiculous high price , stood in the queue to check in my luggage , then walked up the escalators through the airport security (forgot the shuttle bus ride from the car park to the airport) 🙂 .. I mean the airport is supposedly the most security conscious place, after getting myself imaged in the new human camera, and then getting patted up and down by the security staff just because my bracelet set the metal detector off..  do the duty-free people still think that I just might have got into the shop without the BOARDING PASS.

December is here, Festive season’s , the year coming to an end, I love December though because of all the festivities, and also one of my favorite person has their birthday this month (although I am not their favorite 🙂 ) ..  So I would like to wish them a very happy birthday a couple of days late I know.. but then that’s me a Late Latif always 🙂

So whats the plan for Christmas everyone two weeks left .. Have a great month everyone …

 

So this demonetization process is going on, The funny things is as always the so-called nationalists and people Who love the country.. Especially those who have been crying out loud their love for the nation have started crying out loud again.

As always the APATHY of the nation starts, our nation has always been unlucky due to the leaders we have chosen, ever since independence there has been NO LEADER who is actually interested in the goodness of the nation, their own personal interests were a priority be it Nehru-Gandhi or any other leader.  Which is such a shame that our nation has been taken over by the DIRTY politics.

Anyway I did not want to put this post on these dirty politicians , I wanted to talk about the PEOPLE of the nation who in a vast number are still in love with the country, BUT what makes me angry is that we the people of the nation are still not one.

Since this demonetizationhas started So many stupid messages , videos have been making the rounds,  what FILTH is being distributed videos where Prime Minister Modi is being abused all over, Videos talking of national pride.. IS THIS PRIDE where we are openly abusing a chosen Prime Minister.

I hear a lot of LEADERS and People talking how a Common man is in a problem, how they are having to face so many problems.. WELL my question to these Samaritans who are sending all these whatsapp messages, emails and what not..

“HELLO”… instead of sending messages and wasting time, WHY don’t you get up your arse and do something about it.. If you think old people are being made to stand in a Queue .. Then why don’t you pick up a JUG of water and a glass and go and give some Water to this OLD MAN.

What is Funny is that even NRI’s who are sitting so far away from the nation and are undr no pressure or PAIN to stand in the QUEUE are circulating such message, LET ME ASK YOU PEOPLE are you afraid that next time when you go back to the nation you wont be able to bribe your way, or are you afraid that the famous JUGAAD wont work.  You idiots stand in a queue for hours here abroad , SO WHY CANT YOU STAND IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.

And to the Rest of the people what is YOUR PROBLEM with this demonetization, Have you NOT worked hard to Earn that Money.. Have you used unlawful ways to earn that money, NO ONE is questioning you if you have worked hard and earned the money through proper channels.

Instead of wasting time why don’t you do something, why dont you work harder, In Punjab the SIKH organisations have been distributing Langar to those who have been standing in the QUEUE for hours to get their Money exchanged, HAS ANYONE who is harping on and on about the problems of the people gone and helped a SINGLE person.

In this WHOLE episode has anyone taken a second to think of that SOLDIER who is standing at the border, ready to give his life for you all what is going in his mind now, thinking that his wife-parents-or other family members are going through all this turmoil trying to exchange their money.. What if HE LEAVES his POST and comes home..

Yet IDIOTS and MORONS are making stupid videos wasting TIME and MONEY in bringing more disharmony in the nation, Why don’t you people get up and just go and help the families of the soldiers.

If you can’t see the issues being faced by the people DO SOMETHING, I have been blessed by a group of people who are very active in the region of Punjab helping all the needy, recently we bought a truckFull of Grain and distributed among people who are having a problem with money, It’s Not we are rich and bought.. All we did was Pool in some money, bought and then Went around asking if someone wanted to buy it off us, WE have then written the names of the people who did not have the Money and given them stuff, So when they do have the Money they will come and Give it back.

This way no one is out-of-pocket, some of the people have actually returned money back in the current denomination.

Almost every Religious place is getting into Business, Why don’t these religious places Open their Trunks full of Legal denomination and exchange it for the people, Why don’t they give the money to the local shopkeepers etc, So these shopkeepers can give food etc to those who don’t have the legal tender or even to the POOR, who are the worst hit with this demonetization.

No one will do anything but instead make idiotic videos.. Now that the demonetization  is in process it can’t be Stopped.. so STOP this nonsense and help the other country men.

YES there could have been more thought put in this , I already wrote in the previous post about it , but that does not mean I start writing post after post how it is effecting , how the poor are suffering YES THEY ARE .. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT.. 

Write posts sitting in your posh rooms, AC rooms, Make whatsapp VIDEOS, messages and flood the market, ABUSE the PM of the nation, Take Political MILEAGE..  for GOD SAKE and for once in your life spend just 5 Minutes for the Good of the nation.. 

IF Each citizen spent just 5 minutes for the Good of the nation each day IMAGINE how many hours it will be EACH day. We don’t have that many hours or minutes in the DAY to even think of it .. JUST IMAGINE..   do something for god sake .. instead of crying at every little bit. 

 

PS:- Please dont start to Comment, oh how I did a good thing etc etc.. THE POST IS NOT TO GET PRAISE OR ANYTHING OF THAT SORT.  this is purly against the Idiots in our nation, who themselves wont ever do anything for the good , but if anyone does anything they will start to shout hoarse. 

Especially the POLITICAL LEADERS….
