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 …

I was recently tagged by Smitha from  Any Excuse to Write…

What this is about: To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

Rules:

1) Blogger is nominated to take part

2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category. The links are:

– Your most beautiful post

I love all my posts, I know everyone says the same , but then I cant decide which one is more beautiul than the other, Since when I am writing at that precise moment that is most beautiful. I will cheat from Smitha and ask a question here.. When you are commenting DO tell me Which one you think is the best Article I have written.. Go on give it a try?

– Your most popular post

It seems one of the recents posts on my birthday has been most popular.. 11-11-11 It’s got the most comments

– Your most controversial post

I think I get into trouble in a lot of posts I write especially about the nation, and on NRI’s who are settled here abroad., But I liked writing the one on Slut walk and the comments that came after that were good too , it was fun replying to them all too , Another was the One where I asked the Terrorists to kill the parasites of our great nation rather than killing the innocent hard working people, that brought a lot of lovely comments too .. to the fact that I was said to have written to it just to get a few comments 🙂 .. To the Terrorist.

– Your most helpful post

Well Again how do I know, I have found that sometimes the post that we write to say something rarely get read or commented upon, while some stupid posts which are either put for the sake of putting one or just a picture gets a lot of Comments, Maybe its sign people telling me how bad a writer I am 🙂 …    I think since christmas is round the corner Would like people to read this one on Drink and Drive.

– A post whose success surprised you

Now that is a Good question, Frankly each and every post that I have written brings a surprise, For I think I am still learning and have got a long way to go.  Lot of my friends have given me advices, Some have shown  surprise with eyebrows raised thinking have I written or HOW did I manage to write that post.

– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved

Some of the posts that I have written on problems faced and how the Govt is taking us for granted probably needed more attention by fellow bloggers.  Farmers of our nation.. They are the backbone of our country

– The post that you are most proud of

I am proud of a lot of posts. I am a emotional person and I live a lot with memories missing a lot of people , my posts on my Father, my Friends , My village are very close to me. I usually write what i feel irrespective of what others think :).  I have a few to mention here ..   Fathers Day , Anupinder , Ravjote, Babbar

3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.

Thank you everyone for all the love and care you have shown me and my blog over the last 2 years ..

(REPOSTING THIS POST Sorry a LONG POST )


Christmas is here followed by new years, Drinking and driving is on the rise, in the last few days found a few people for this offence..

The best thing is you go to the driver’s side, ask him to switch off the engine. Then ask them have you had a drink, the typical reply is first

“NO”…

“I can smell it on your breadth”…

“Sorry, I have had just half or Just a Pint”…

You stand there and Smile… Off course you have…

Then you ask them to step out of the vehicle, the Door swings open, they are so pissed , instead of putting their leg out first , they have to twist there bottoms then plonk there leg, Hold the DOOR TIGHTLY, get the second leg out, then slowly try to get up.. Ooops they can’t so they try again… When on two feet the Feet are firmly on ground, but the upper body waist upwards is sort of moving on its one…

They have just had ONE pint … Yes sir you have indeed.. and the word MORON is on my tatooed on my HEAD… 

Ask them there name, they give a whole history, name, date of birth, where they live etc etc out it comes like a river flowing…

You ask them again very politely, are you sure you had just a pint,

“Yes, before that I had another one earlier “… the Smile on your face widens… How earlier was that…?

“Afternoon lunch .. ” so basically to tell the truth and from experience they have been drinking since lunch up till now, You got no other choice but to get him off the road, Else he would endanger the rest of the people.

Christmas, new years, Diwali, Holi these festivals are there, I can understand to have fun, enjoy but they don’t give the RIGHT to get drunk and endanger other people who are enjoying the festive season according to their choice. I can understand the need for a Drink during these occasions, I do too, But I Never Drive after having a drink, and if I have to go for a drink I take a Taxi or Bus it. My friends who are with me Know very well that they dare not do it themselves, Call me Unfriendly or bad person But they know if they drive after having a drink I WILL CALL THE POLICE to rat on them because I don’t want to feel the Guilt if the same person drives his car into someone or something killing/hurting others or themselves, It does NOT make me wrong or less friendly, it makes me human because I have a conscious.

It’s nothing to do with Friendship honor, or to do anything with love for friends, If you think otherwise fair enough dont read furthur, BUT don’t let them have that drink before they drive, or Pay for the Taxi to take them home, Pay for the Bus Fare but DO NOT let them Drive Drunk.

That to me is FRIENDSHIP honour.

That to me shows you care for that person.

It’s easier said Oh one small shot or A pint won’t matter, It does matter. Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. There is no foolproof way of drinking and staying under the limit or of knowing how much an individual person can drink and still drive safely.

I learnt my lesson in a Bad horrible accident years ago, So All who read this Please be careful, Tell the people around you to be careful, Don’t do anything silly, and ALWAYS Always think hundred times driving after a drink, Its not worth it. Most young people will give two hoots to what I have said, But Guys and Gals Please Think . Everything gets spoilt in an instant, Remember when drunk , THE CAR IS A LOADED GUN, a tool to do serious damage with, it is a serious WEAPON.

So the only safe option is not to drink alcohol if you plan to drive, and never offer an alcoholic drink to someone else who is intending to drive, The law needs to change, it should not only be the drunk driver, But the people who Knew that the person is Drunk and Knew he/she is going to Drive, Knowing this they still allow the person to drive, Then IF something does go wrong, they all need to be held responsible because as i said earlier the car is a loaded gun that we have allowed this person who has had a drink to use, So we should be held responsible. The same way as we would if we actually hand a gun to a person to shoot with.

I know a bit farfetched but end of the day, this could be Abetment to the accident, My conscious does not allow this , so hopefully it should not allow to a lot of people too.

Anyway these are my random thoughts good-bad whatever… it’s me and my Silly mind thinks sometimes…… Remember if you stop one drunk driver driving back home or anywhere you may have saved a life, which sure would amount to a GOOD DEED FOR THE DAY…

MERRY CHRISTMAS people, BE SAFE.. and KEEP OTHERS SAFE
