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

 

 

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…. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The recent upheaval that is going on in our nation is getting on everyone’s nerves , I guess with the amount of messages I keep getting.

I do think this idea of stopping the use of Rs.500 and 1000 note is very good as it will definitely stop the use of black money and the fake notes that have been flooded in our nation, Will it make any change I don’t know.

Media is reporting things , I am trying to make head or trail of it all but can’t understand one little thing , there are queues in front of banks where people are standing for hours and hours to get the notes changed, BUT In all the reports I have not seen a SINGLE celebrity or a big business man, are we saying they have NO notes to exchange.

Whatsapp is a good tool , I had a message come to me a couple of days before PM Modi announced the change, that message has a picture of the New Rs.2000 note .. how is that possible, where was that pic clicked or who clicked it, does that mean the notes were in circulation prior to the announcement.

What about NRI’s I have a few notes where do I go and get them exchanged, I been talked to my mom , she has visited our local bank three times in the last two days with the same notice on the door of the bank, NO CURRENCY.

I also have a question regarding the security that keeps getting mentioned on the new notes, they are so secure, connected to GPS or Satellite.. that is fair enough but HOW does that prevent the use of FAKE notes,  If I have a Fake Rs. 2000 Note how do i know, or when I use it at a shop etc. How will they know, it is Fake.

In another news I read that Congress Mp’s or MLA’s in Punjab have resigned in protest over some issue, WELL we are going to have elections in 2017, 3 months away HOW does it matter if they resigned now.

The Reason why i say this is that in the pub the other day some obviously congress allies were going on and on  about how their ministers have resigned , for the good of the state , how this was all selfless.. SELFLESS I say when has a politician done anything for selfless reasons.

Its like this Currency notes all the big wigs have got their accounts sorted, I doubt if ANY of the big wigs will be questioned by Income tax people or brought to justice but MAYBE just maybe some common people might who may have gotten their money through wrong means but the amount they have does not even effect a .000000000000000001% of the actual problem.

What do you think people is this really going to help, How is this going to bring the Black money sitting in Swiss banks back into India.

Would it not mean that instead of paying 500 or 1000 as bribe to get some things dones, especially in a Govt. Office (believe me the hassel one has to go through, I found 2 years ago a half hour job took , 3 WEEKS because I did not pay the correct person when i should have, which resulted in me spending more money in changing my flight tickets, taking more time off from my work WITHOUT PAY.. so it was more loss , easier to pay the 500 🙂 ).. We will have to pay Rs.2000. Now…

In my simple brain there are a few steps that can be taken to sort this issue, make all transactions electronic only especially if they are lets say higher than 20K or 50K.

Make sure every individual declares their Property, if any property is not declared assign it to the STATE.

Mahatma Gandhi as we know was the best politician the world has ever had. Politics is the art of gaining what you want even when you are weak… But why call Gandhi as Mahatma I have not understood that, Because as far as I know or as history tells us neither his actions nor his character were impeccable. He did have a few skeletons in his cupboard too.

With each change in political scenario in the country the facts and slogans and Tamasha changes.. according to the will and wimp of the political parties ideology.

Some feel offended that Gandhi is blamed,  but Gandhi was not perfect, so what’s the harm in blaming Gandhi, he did make quiet a few mistakes, who doesn’t, So what’s wrong in blaming him, after all don’t we hear it that we Should be responsible for our actions.

Gandhi no doubt was a very good manipulator, a Politician par excellence.. I don’t deny that, But what I am against is giving a man so much importance when there are others who are equally deserving or MORE. So if they don’t get what they deserve then why is one man singled out for all this respect, If he said that youth like Sardar Bhagat Singh are damaging the image of the nation, then So did he.

March 23 came and went it was the 75th anniversary of the martyrdom of Shaheed Sardar Bhagat Singh. The reason I am mentioning him is that in those turbulent times.. It was HE who was as popular as Gandhi, I will say More than him, that is why the conspiracy theory that Gandhi did not do his best to save him from the gallows.

I myself feel that it has become a mockery with the way history has been changed, manipulated on what Bhagat Singh and many others did , How it helped the bringing of Independence. It is not correct to compare the paths of Bhagat Singh and Gandhi, even when the goal was same..

It is so very wrong to think that it was the Non-cooperative movement which made British  Leave India, the movement started by Gandhi. I think it was both the Revolt to take arms, the anger plus the movements of Gandhi that made the British understand that the time was ripe to vacate the Asian subcontinent for good

The likes of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Chandrasekhar Azad, Rajguru ,SukhDev,Udham Singh and Plenty more whom history has forgotten, who embraced death in their early age, they were all Jewels of OUR country conveniently forgotten by History Manipulators.

Because of political changes history has been so badly manipulated that we still think it was only the indiscipline or non-cooperation movements started by Gandhi that helped in Independence, this is religiously followed in all walks of life in India even to this day.

WE forget that Today the same Congress , and the KHADI wearing people , The so-called people who are following Gandhi principles are the worst enemies we have… and These are the very people the young fire brand freedom fighters cautioned us about..  

But we the people have not learned anything, I doubt if we will Learn too. I am sure EVEN GANDHI himself will be ashamed of the ways our politicians are behaving today, but then Gandhi himself was a Politician par excellence. 
PS:- The spelling in the title are wrong I know .. WHAT Independence!!!!

I am sure those who regularly visit me know that I become very nostalgic when it comes to friendship, by the grace of god I have made some very good friends all over. I am very proud of that. The following are my views on what I think about friendship, Let me take this opportunity Just want to say I love you all my friends and thanks for always being there .. and to all the new friends I have made here Online , Blogosphere. God bless you all

Internet has been a great tool, I have met so many people over it all over the world and I must say some of them have become very good friends, a few closer than family too. Blogging has helped too in meeting or knowing new people some have been good, some OK, I wont say bad because I think , No one is bad they are good for someone if not you.

I am proud and can honestly say I got friends almost all over the world now , which is GOOD cause I don’t have to stay in Hotels anymore and Spend the money THAT I HAVE NOT EARNED YET or should I say Saved yet. I have been to Chicago, vancouver, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, California , Virginia, Mumbai loads and loads of place and guess what yeah FREE ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD (and psssttt Drink tooo yayyyy)

In this modern world we have become very unforgiving people. It may be an ethnic problem, or a community’s problem or a country’s, or in your relationships, with your wife, children, parents,Girl Friend, Friends, Acquaintances we get very very unforgiving and we hold that against them and sometimes hold that Grudge for a long long time, We wear it as a badge which says‘main tujhe kabhi maaf nahi karoonga’ (I will never forgive you)

Everyone has a hidden agenda behind everything, It was not like this always people use to be so good, caring. The words they said meant something , people stood by there words.

Nowadays people are quick to make a relation, even quicker to spoil or break one. What they say is not what they mean. What would it take to go back to the good old days. I mean how can someone say oh we are friends then at next instant go behind your back , I mean what is friendship…

Dosti karo to Jam ke karo
Dushmani karo to woh bhi Jum ke karo
magar khyal itna rahe , ki fir agar Dosti ho
to Sharamindgi na ho….

We have gotten so busy in our life that we have forgotten or forget what the effects of our actions will have on others, We have become so selfish, I ask god one thing always Please don’t make me so selfish, or careless, uncaring, heartless, Because I don’t know which action of mine might hurt someone, and to those who i have hurt , I am not sure how I will every be able to apologize to. I do hope that some day they can pardon me.

So

1. What is FRIENDSHIP/ FRIENDS ?.

2. Do we respect our FRIENDSHIP/ FRIENDS ?.

3. How do you show respect towards your friend, Or see if they respect you ?

Is SAYING That I RESPECT you same as SHOWING respect ?

To me a friend is who would stand by you, no matter what, right or wrong is something to think about after the need has got over.. A friend in need is a friend indeed that’s how we respect our friendship, Good friends stand by you Right or wrong.. That is not the criteria here at the moment.. The moment is that your friend needs you and You are there..THAT TO ME IS FRIENDSHIP

I feel that you respect it when you can Tell them how you feel and ask them how they feel directly, rather than assuming… Respect is shown when you See the whole world walk out and a few Walk IN FOR YOU.

Do people actually mean they are friends when they say they are, or are just making fun of you. If they are then why do they do it. Would they feel the same if this happened with them, or have they become so heartless that it does not bother them anymore. How can they go to sleep soundly, well now I am being a fool because they don’t even know what hurt they have caused.

People are impulsive and say things that hurt other people, they walk over others especially people whom they say are friends. And in all this process they loose friends, I am a bit of a dumbo it takes a bit of time for me to understand people are trying to ignore me , so it gets difficult to loose me:).

 

Sometimes I wish I had the Ego or Impulse to severe my contact with people. I do pray to god to make me like them as that is the way of the world it seems Now-a-days.

Also how easy it is to Forget these days but more on that maybe some other day:), All I would say is Please god take care of all my friends, foes, anyone I know .. God bless all and everyone

Here is a little poem i wrote some time back, it is dedicated to everyone all who visit this blog , All who Think of me, All who Thought of me and All who at some stage were my friends:) God bless you all..

PS. – Something for a smile , It is Important to have friends and that too at Important Places.

The Word Charity has the following meaning according to the Oxford dictionary

  1.  An organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need
  2. The body of organizations viewed collectively as the object of fundraising or of donations
  3.  The voluntary giving of help, typically in the form of money, to those in need.

No where it mentions that it is to become a business and that too a Multi Billion pound business, The executives or the board members earning a 6 figure salary.  These well-paid bosses of some good causes are nothing but ‘incompetent or wilfully blind’.

Some of the charities use tactics that are so brutal , an undercover report recently showed how the staff were ordered to be ‘brutal’ and ‘ferocious’ when asking for cash and told even the old and poor ‘have no excuse’ not to give.

The reason for this post is what happened last week although it probably shows how weak a person I am, but still I do blame the pressure tactics used.

Last week I was watching a Tv show and in the break there was a ad on how the children are suffering in Africa because of need for safe Water facilities.   It was a normal ad that they show for various other charities, asking us to Txt a particular number with the word Water.  So they can deduct 3 pounds from the account when the phone bill comes.

I did that and forgot about it , only to be reminded two days later by a txt that how thankful they are for the support blahdy blah..  T0 my surprise I also got a Phone call from some call centre but this time it was a tad bit different, The gentleman first wanted to explain to me what the charity #WATERAID did, how it was helping thanks to the people who were donating, Slowly the conversation changed to how good it would be if people could donate more often.

The person asked me if I would volunteer to pay some money every month Via direct Debit, I said I have donated what I could afford and wanted to since charity is a Voluntary thing, when I had more money I will do that again, But that did not stop the person on the other end to give up, He carried on with the sales pitch, playing on all the emotions that one could .. What if it was My kids or what if it was kids that I know of etc et, How water is so important, How since it is not safe water diseases are coming up.

He started from 12 or 15 pounds a month to start with, I made an excuse that I will think about it after march when I have had my Pay review , to which he was quick to say no issues we can set the direct debit that will start from March and Not January.

From 15 we went to 12 then to 10 and then in the end he came to 6 pounds a month, by this time I was completely made to realise what a SICK HEARTLESS person I am who can’t even pay that much to help in easing the suffering of the little children.

I ended up giving my bank details and setting a Direct debit.. NOW the reason for the post is that IS THIS RIGHT.  I am sort of forced to dish out money, Should these charities be calling like that, The whole Idea of the AD was to txt. a word and voluntarily pay a charity that was working for the good of the people.

This did not end here Since last Monday I have had at least 4 to 5 calls from various charities that are trying to help asking me if I could help, Have had Txt messages asking to reply to them if I wanted to donate 3 pounds or 5 pounds for various needs. How have they got hold of my number is a mystery.

Charity-donation etc is a personal issue why should we be getting cold calls from call centres trying to sell CHARITY.  This has left a bad taste, I have just only managed to get rid of another charity that has been hounding me in-spite of a direct debit set up for some money, now they want me to increase the amount.  I get at least half a dozen brochures, Letters everyday, With pictures of sick children who are suffering.

I mean is that right to have the tragedy that these kids are going through to be used like this to make money. The worst thing is that the whole of the amount that is generated is not used for the good of the people, Why does a CHARITY head or executive have a SIX FIGURE salary, I work 10 to 12 hours a Day, and then on Rest days I work overtime to make more money, My salary still does not add up to QUARTER of what these executives get.

I can also bet my life that these executives don’t even have a direct debit set up for a few pounds to go to charity.  Recently some of the leading charities have been exposed with these WRONG methods, it does put to shame the word CHARITY.  I have a few direct debits set up and Now I am thinking of cancelling all of them, Am I really doing any Good or am I just helping in paying the Salaries of these Executives and other office bearers. 

Right well I was going to start this post with a disclaimer but .. what the hell ..  I am going write what I think, SO what do I say to this NEW fashion statements that are coming left right and centre in our “SHINING and DEVELOPING ” nation , India off course I mean. Every day there is some celebrity or some tom dick and harry who is either getting targeted for saying something the Public DO NOT WANT TO HEAR or for NOT SAYING what the public wants to hear.

End of the day this debate is basically what we want or NOT want to hear, and our hypocrisy has no boundaries , anything to make sure the public attention goes to STUPID or IDIOTIC issues rather than the ones that every INDIAN individual should pay attention to.

Recent melodrama or the fashion statement that is going around is brick bashing of Amir Khan, my view on the whole episode is that the people who are shouting hoarse and asking him to leave the country, making statements how he earns money in India and how his movie PK makes fun of “HINDU” gods and yet was a super hit movie.. right WELL to those people shouting obscenities at  Amir Khan, well they are just proving his point, SAD BUT TRUE.  Going on about one film what about films like RANG DE BASANTI, What about shows like Satayamev Jayate..  or the Movie Sarfarosh , or is it because Amir in Sarfarosh is bashing a Muslim and making those PRO HINDU patriotic dialogues it is ok ..  just because PK is thought to be making fun of HINDU god it suddenly is talked about. – Can anyone see the Pattern of pick and choose ..

All those people where were you when a man was Killed because it was “THOUGHT” he had beef, Many of the people in the mob who killed this man belonged to ONE religion , also I can vouch many of them also EAT MEAT, if not all then at least a handful, they eat MEAT. So HOW is it OK to eat one animal and NOT The other one.

All those people where were you when a young girl was molested on the road of GUWAHATI. ( now I hope the reason for not helping the girl was NOT because she was of one religion)

All those people where were you when a young girl got raped in DELHI.

So what is wrong in saying that Intolerance is growing up  IT DEFINITELY IS.

Moreover he says that his wife feels that way, whats wrong JUST BECAUSE HE IS A MUSLIM he is being targeted like that , The statement is actually a STRONG voice because If I have read it correctly ..

Mr. Khan told an audience that his wife, Kiran Rao, had suggested moving from the country.

“That’s a disastrous and very big statement for Kiran to make to me,” Mr. Khan said. “She fears for her child, she fears what this atmosphere around us will be, she feels scared to open the newspapers everyday.”

KIRAN RAO is a HINDU.. so a hindu is not feeling safe in the country , that is much more shameful than a Muslim saying and YET all the people who have gone on bashing Amir khan , have they even considered for ONE SECOND what that statement means. It puts me at SHAME, that a hindu is saying she is not safe , our country is HINDU DOMINATED..  instead like it always happens we are good at deviating from a core point and go on tangents, because we can target a MUSLIM now, yet this whole drama is on the question of  TOLERANCE.

HECK I don’t feel SAFE when I come to visit my country, does that mean I am a traitor. I feel scared opening the on-line news papers I read every day to know about my country.

There are Millions of issues that need to be looked at , people don’t have DRINKING WATER in rural india, some have to walk hours to get fresh water (This they have to do EVERYDAY), so the people who are WASTING time and energy on harping over what AMIR KHAN said , PLEASE do something else , pick a WATER BOTTLE to give a drink to person who has to walk every day for WATER.

There are Millions who do not have a ROOF over their head, THINK about them and NOT WHAT AMIR KHAN SAID or DID, spend this rage , time  on doing for those who are needy.

There are Millions who are dieing of HUNGER Go and FEED that many people as many tweets or statements you have made over one person’s statement, Imagine the Time that has been wasted over ONE PERSON’s STATEMENT,  if only that much time was spent in the good of people maybe JUST MAYBE we will become a bit more TOLERANT.

I had a smile when I was reading a statement by SHIV SENA that the actor is speaking the language of Treachery, 🙂 and what language do you speak sir when you say Maharashtra is for Maharashtrians, a few years back were you not the same who wanted the people migrating to Mumbai from other STATES OF INDIA, to leave the CITY.  That I beleive is the Language of SOLIDARITY.  TOUCHE’

I think the common man is too busy to make two ends meet, to make sure that there is roof over the head, that there is a bread on the table for his kids, I doubt if he has time for such idiocy, its only the so called EDUCATED, PATRIOTS etc etc who have all the free time for wasting time over a NON consequential statement. Do you think any-one of these characters would have made so much uproar if it was Not AMIR KHAN who made the statement.

Has anyone ever gone and seen the QUEUES outside foreign embassies in India, People QUEUE up to get that visa as early as 4am in morning,  Millions if given a chance to leave WILL LEAVE, majority of those who are shouting Hoarse themselves would love to leave India and settle abroad,  There are millions who probably say the same statement, who probably go through hell each day trying to make a living, yet NO ONE is interested in those poor.

A senior Leader in Indian Govt. (Giriraj Singh)  openly said that “Those opposing Narendra Modi are looking at Pakistan, and such people will have place in Pakistan and not in India,” at a  poll meeting at Mohanpur Haat Maidan near the temple town Deogarh, I guess the recent election in Bihar  showed him what a common man thinks, hopefully he will learn.   So those who take to TWITTER and go on a Rally at every statement WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE.  how come no outrage on the above statement.

What does that point to me it only shows that Not only are we getting more intolerant we ARE BECOMING CHOOSY INTOLERANT, we do so when it SUITS US.

Here is a Prayer that our literary master wrote , Rabindranath Tagore,  BUT hey before you read it , please let me make myself CLEAR , this was written by a person of a DIFFERENT RELIGION than MINE..

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, Where knowledge is free, Where the world has not been broken up into fragments, by narrow domestic walls, Where words come out from the depth of truth, Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection, Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way, Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit, Where the mind is led forward by thee, Into ever-widening thought and action, Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.

 

Indeed for the sake of GOD , which ever one it is you believe in  WAKE UP.

On one of my posts I got the following comment

“Bikram, I sometimes wonder if I’ve punished my kid by bringing him into such a cruel world. I want him to have a beautiful life, but one can only be horrified imagining what kind of future this world is going to have. Whatever happened to ‘live and let live’!”..

HOW TRUE the statement is what sort of world are we leaving , or bringing them into..  Although I also feel that the above statement is what I have to SAY and what KIRAN RAO said above, but that she is married to AMIR KHAN 🙂

I think the time is to UNITE not further divide the nation , especially after what we have seen happen in PARIS, we should get together irrespective of color-caste-creed-religion Anything, and Stop going on and on .. on such silly issues..
