DISCLAIMER:-This Article has some very nasty truths .. so please read it at your own risk.. Truth is always hard to digest. These are my thoughts or what i have seen and heard ..

After my last post on what happened with a girl I know, I have some further Shocking incidents to discuss here. 

When I was studying in school as usual we had our female class mates with us, yes we had our crushes and emotions for a few of them in the school which is common , One of the girls in the class called me bhaiya or Veerji.. and that was it since that day onwards we have talked to each other as brother and sister, I am sure there are hundreds and thousands who have had that experience and do believe in the relation like that.

BUT nowadays a new situation is cropping up, which is quiet mind-blowing and shocking too, the hunger to come abroad, reach foreign shores is so bad in our country that people will do anything to get out, I know most of the people will say it’s not like that anymore. No one wants to come abroad the young generation is not looking to go abroad but to be blunt It is a myth. What all the so-called Educated, the future of the nation would do to come abroad. 

Here area few scenarios..

1. A girl/boy  takes an exam to get admission in a University or college in UK, they have been taking tuitions to pass this exam to get a good band, They pass it and then apply for a visa to come to this county.. Visa is again a lottery .. Lets suppose that “A” gets the visa (I don’t know what type of visa etc) , but lets assume they get 3 or 4 years visa.  Money has been spent on tuition, staying in a city for all that time, visa fees, visiting Delhi or whenever the consulate is .. all this adds up to a good amount, BUT mission accomplished got the Visa…

The scheme starts now.. “A” ‘s parents are now on a look out for a partner for their child, OH YES.. the reason being that since “A” can come abroad he can apply for a visa for a dependant which can be a husband-wife-partner .. So the BOLI the Auction starts .. the highest bidder who can pay .. for all that money spent, plus the college fees to be given , the travel arrangements etc etc and a PROFIT on top of it is required, well you can well imagine how much money exchanges hands.. it goes in lakhs..

This is the new trend which has come up you want to come abroad find a person who has got a visa then apply as a partner and voila you  can come to the foreign shores, we the indian’s are exploiting this rule to the fullest, sometimes to prove they are partners a sham marriage takes place…  Sham marriages is another big fiddle these days.  In our society it’s still ok for a boy but the girls too don’t mind these days, they get the money , and then come here and have to live like partners here to …

This is becoming quiet common in south india and Punjab since most of the students who are coming are from these areas…

2. This is Much more shocking a boy marries a girl from abroad or vice versa , come to the country stay for as long with their mutual partner , then I think its 2 years or maybe 5 years they apply for the citizenship , which they usually get because all these years they have been golden boys/girls in the family, suddenly when that Red passport comes in hand they change to their true colours .. Bang comes the papers to file for a divorce out of the blue.. next thing is they have a girl friend or boy friend back in india who now comes over as the new partner  🙂

Hold on One more scheme is there

3. If you have a relative settled abroad doesn’t matter who it is , if they have a permanent residency then ask them to divorce their partners , you have a sham marriage with them .. you can come abroad .. then off course you change partners again  once all settles down .. a LOT of money exchanges hands this way ..

Situation is so bad that brothers and sisters are getting to this SHAM marriage …  when I started writing this article this is what i wanted to write on but it’s too disgusting .. Reading the above few scenarios I am sure you all are intelligent enough to know what i would have said .. YES  there have been such cases, tooo. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT.. what  people can do to come abroad , that’s why I laugh sometimes when people say oh the young generation is not interested … One needs to see the Ques at Delhi or other consulates..  We as indians have this habit of not seeing the reality and hushing up matters this is one of them..

Someone said to me its only a small number .. YES ITS A SMALL NUMBER BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY SO MANY APPLICATIONS THAT CAN BE PROCESSED IN A DAY AT THE CONSULATES…  if it is open 24 hours the line will be longer …

I had an Indian passport with permanent residency, here when you apply for a british passport legally you are supposed to surrender your old passport ..  I was offered 10 lakh plus rupees if I could sell my passport to a friend in Chennai, He was so desperate to come over. I mean how will the name BIKRAMJIT go with a south Indian face,  no disrespect to him, but his answer was that its his problem, Me being an idiot surrendered my passport the day i got my british one, I should have kept it easy money that was…

The reason I brought this up I have a family friend here who are happily married and recently got their permanent stay here, Look how news travels and how the minds of people work, this was on 28th or 29th of April ..  and last week someone approached me from India a friend of a friend of a friend … 🙂 … that I should go and talk to this couple if they are interested in making some money and this was the idea.. 25 Lakh each 🙂 

Me being me called this friend who had given my number and blasted him off , now I have lost a friend too.. I have not told the couple here lest they stop talking to me too,  the best part is the person who phoned me is cousin of the girl.

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 …

Being a MAN

Posted: July 15, 2010 in Age, Experiences, Mankind, My Thoughts., Thinking

This phrase is often heard especially amongst MEN..

It is not that one is strong physically that is considered Manly enough, I have seen a lot of big Strong men become chicken and run away …

Sometimes it makes me wonder was I man enough when I was growing up or am I still man enough… Yeah i know stupid thought but the times i was growing up were different, different in a sense for example if we had a fight the maximum we used were hockey sticks or clubs .. these days kids go armed with knifes or even firearms… I mean a 12 year old going equipped with a knife .. thats the ugly truth of today ….

I remember some funny incidents, funny in a sense I find them funny now .. but when they happened it was not so.. in punjabi we have this word “AUKHA HAIN”.. basically if you want to pick up a fight you go upto someone and say it ..and in punjab you got a fight on your hands 🙂 , usually the other side answers “NO” or “LEAVE IT ” etc etc

We were a big group in my college, and there was this guy with whom we had a problem, I dont know what it was now.. But we had .. One day me and my mates were in sector 17 chandigarh.. saw this guy with his mates.. I am a very straightforward, I thought this is the chance 🙂 so I went upto him and I said “AUKHA HAIN“.. I was not expecting the reply that i got.. a Tall Sardar , Big bloke on the side says

HANN HAIGAAN“.. (meaning yes i am) …

for a second I was taken aback, since I did not expect this reply , lucky for me my friend Babbar who is MAD MAN.. 🙂 stepped in and for some reason it all fizzeled away, suddenly we were all shaking hands ..

The reason for the above is that I felt this new friend was A MAN.. he stood for his friend, did not ask the reasons or anything but just stood up for his mate, incidentally after this little scenario we became very good friends…

I really cant understand what sort of people are those who dont have the GUTS to stand up, Or at least stand up for what they say .. What sort of MAN are they … Especially the ones who hide behind the anonymous tags… I mean if you have something to say then you should say it in the open and at someones face.

So what does it make to be a MAN..

****************************

I am not saying that I am always right , But when I am wrong, I put up my hand and accept it .. No harm in saying sorry.. Only the brave can say sorry .. It takes a lot of courage to say sorry .. as they say thats what makes a MAN out of a boy…

I read this article the other day on Apologies, I really loved reading it .. I do beleive that there is no shame in accepting one’s fault .. it makes one a better person and if you are a male definitely a MAN… By accepting the fault it gives us a chance to not do it again..

****************************

Another thing that I connect with being a man is that I strongly beleive that one should not accept wrong being done, constantly heard the phrase IGNORE IT .. its fair enough but WHY should we ignore it … Why cant I just find the person who has said something derogatory or done something wrong , Beat the crap out of them or at least publicly humiliate them ..

I mean how long can one ignore it .. and because of someones stupidity why should I change the way I live or change the way I think.. That would be letting into. Whats so manly about it … I really dont understand this..

****************************

The above are just a few thoughts randomly jumping around in my head , I have no clue what it means or what it is …

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder – AAADD

I guess we all reach a stage where we all have some sort of disorder in us , sometimes there are so many that we loose count off, But i am sure they probably have a name for all the disorders or symptoms ..

The alarm went off at 9:20 AM , I woke up, switched off the alarm.. lay in bed relaxing … got up a few minutes later and did the curtains to notice Sun was out and it was clear blue sky .. Warm day .. the whole week has been cold.. so thankfully the weather man got it right …

Well Weekend was here and since they predicted to be a hot-warm day on Saturday i though yayyyyy nice one. I went downstairs to make myself a cup of coffee.. Poured it in my super Big Glass.. I make my coffee with Milk only serves two purposes wakes me up and the milk is good for health..

I was about to take the first sip when I noticed outside and thought lets get the garden sorted since winters have gone and it needs a revamp.. make it ready for the summers I decide to do that.. Left the glass to cool down a bit and

Walked out to the garden thought of watering the plants since the soil looked dry.. As I turn on the hose, I noticed that my car in the driveway needed some attention, hasn’t been washed for quiet a long time,

So i decide lets wash it, I headed with the hose towards the car..

Now to reach the car I got to get past the porch.. as I am walking I notice the post is there that the postman had delivered earlier..

So I decide to go through it .. I picked the post and started going through it, most of it was junk mail, pamphlets and off course the Bills.. they all seem to come together and exactly at the point when you think this month i might actually have some saving…

I put my car keys on the table and decide to put the junk mail in the recycling box under the table, As I looked in the bos I noticed that the recycling box is full, So I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the recycling first.

Now since the Recycling place is right next to the post office, So my brilliant mind works that since i will be near it might as well pay the bills tooo .. I decide to do that ..  I left everything in the porch to go inside to get my cheque book, where i notice the coffee glass i had left earlier.

I thought of moving the glass so as i don’t accidentaly knock it off , as I picked the glass I noticed its cold .. Ah well let me make another cup as I walk toward the kitchen with the cold coffee, a vase of flowers on the worktop catches my eye – the flowers need water.

I put the coffee on the worktop and discover my reading glasses that I’ve been searching for last night.

So I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I’m going to water the flowers..

I put the glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote control. Which I may have left on the kitchen table while having dinner. Since tonight Britain’s got talent is coming I thought I should put the remote next to the Tv so I decide to put it back where it belongs, but first I’ll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I put the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

The car isn’t washed

The bills aren’t paid

There is a cold cup of coffee sitting on the kitchen work-surface

The flowers don’t have enough water,

There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,

I can’t find the remote,

I can’t find my glasses,

And I don’t remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m really baffled because I know I was busy all bloody day and I’m really tired.

I realise this is a serious problem, and I’ll try to get some help for it, but first I’ll write it down and post it .. just in case I forget everything and i have nothing new to post…. 🙂

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say it’s not quite as good as his mother’s

..then adopt a dog.

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
for as long and wherever you want …

..then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn’t care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies

…then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores

..then adopt a dog !

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn’t care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually ..

..then adopt a dog.

BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his/her happiness .,

HAVE a GREAT Day!!

I still imagine myself to be 20-24, I feel like living doing what,I want to , like I did when I was in my college time

Wanted to fly….. did it ( gliding and then the Flying

Wanted to be a good at sports – I been in nationals for hockey

Wanted to visit places — work in progress, been to Spain-America-Canada-Australia- Brussels- Dubai etc etc.

Wanted to do a few of the dangerous sport activities- Bungee jumping, parachuting, skydiving.. done a few of those

Then came the still moment, People have this notion once you start working , you will become independent , do this and that.. but its not that way.. as you grow responsibilities grow, priorities change , looking at the world differs, things which mattered than .. Don’t matter NOW. My situation was same after college a few things happened which brought me to UK and settle down here.

All those dreams we had, all friends will take up a job in same company and have fun but it was not to be. I am average person. Everyone or well most people are confident in themselves to a level, but there is always self doubt, should I do this or that , will I be successful, am I doing the right thing. I have my doubts at times. I also long for what everyone longs for Love, caress, appreciation, (you guys reading this write a comment HOW GOOD IT IS.. yes go on please please please .. he he hehe )

The other day I was invited for a birthday party, Now I had always thought of this person to be much older than me , i thought he was in 40’s, just the way he moved about and behaved he was an uncle type person. I was shocked to know that he was 31 that day, Blimey.. ooops If he looked like this now wonder how he will be when he is actually 40’s. I am elder to him so i asked him what did he think of me , Do I look in 40’s uncle types . he smiled and walked away. Now what do i take that to be.

(psst I am not putting my Pic on the BLOG, I mean a better one .. cause i know of a few evil people smiling , nodding there head.. to say YES I LOOK LIKE THAT.. Yes I mean you .. so stop smiling and read on and don’t ask for the pic. 🙂 )

So I was saying I feel like doing that all over again, I am a very active person as such regular to the gym, hockey at weekends and yes Less of Daroo which us punjabis love to drink.

I want to go to Disneyland in Florida.. Oh yes I do .. its nothing of being childish .. every person has a child hidden in them.. I do want to go and do it some day …

Visit the Niagara falls.

The one thing I am dieing to do is go on a Safari in Africa , in a Hot air balloon, Imagine the drift flying u over and then in the middle of it Pffft Pfffft Pfffft oooops the engine or whatever it is stops … and you are slowing going down.. down .. you look down .. GUESS what .. A PRIDE is watching with those sweet innocent eyes , tongues hanging out , occasionaly slurping with the thought of fresh MAN MEAT .. YUMMY .. .

(all those who don’t know a PRIDE is a family of a Lion with lots of lioness LUCKY LION. oops did I offend someone .. ok ok Sorry everyone knows what a Pride is 🙂 ).

I also want to do white water rafting…

Another thing i want to do is drive all the way to India, Yes , Get a Toyota land-cruiser or a range rover , drive it all the way to India.. that I have always in my dreams thought of, at some stages actually had serious talks with a group of maniacs like me to do it , we just did not have that much money to buy the cars , else we just might have done it .. Just imagine .. wow.. I am getting a adrenalin rush just thinking about it… A road trip exploring various places around the world, Turkey, istanbul, syria, Greece, Italy,Iran, Austria, Pakistan.. imagine the amazing places. I know a lot of people have done it so why not do it myself, I have been going through a lot of blogs of people who have done it, ONE DAY GOD WILLING I TOO WILL.

More maybe next time .. What about you people out there anything ….
