This is a shocker, I got an email from a lovely friend of mine which had a link to it on you tube.. She had asked me to see it and confirm if this was true what was being shown on the video.. Well I saw the video and It has shocked me , I had no clue things were this bad. The video showed people young guys being interviewed by a SIKH CHANNEL, as to the way they were living..

The kids were living under a bridge in open, in this weather its freezing outside .. How the hell are they living there .. The interview and a few personal phone calls made have brought some very unhappy and sad things out in the open. The pathetic situation of our boys and it’s not just the sikh or Punjabi boys it’s a lot of people from india .. what was more shocking was talking to a Girl too who was in that situation. I could not believe my ears what I was hearing.

The worst thing is these people are sleeping out in the open just a little distance from a Sikh Gurudwara Sahib and a Hindu temple, How sad can it be that OUR religion teaches us to show pity on poor and help the needy YET we are doing nothing for these kids. DOES IT MATTER

1. WHO THEY ARE

 2. HOW THEY HAVE COME TO THIS COUNTRY

The couple of phone call conversation I had were chilling, I was enjoying this festive season and did not even know about so much suffering of these people, I mean shame on me ..

So much for the so-called people who are supposedly the leaders of our community in this country , THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE POLITICIANS OF OUR NATION. I saw a few interviews by some supposedly rich people on the channel going on and on an on how to help the kids BUT NONE OF THEM HAS DONE ANYTHING SO FAR.

None of the Holy places are doing anything either or if they are doing then it is NOT ENOUGH.  It was surprising and shocking to hear that some kids have not taken a bath for months as these temples are not letting them in, HOW CAN THEY DO IT.

The Gurudwara Sahibs- temples other holy places are supposedly the house of GOD where NO HUMAN BEING should be stopped to enter , everyone has an equal right( especially in a Gurudwara sahib), but as usual the leaders and the office bearers are more interested in getting the MERC or the AUDI from the money they earn from these holy places, rather than spend the same money on the welfare or the people who need it NOW.

What is the need of spending so much money to do extensions to the already huge buildings, I mean what good is that , should that money not be spent on the welfare of the people, I would request each and everyone who go to the holy places to stop doing this, Start asking the questions why is the money that is donated spent like that and wasted on materialistic goods. Is it not worth spending the money in building a BATHROOM where the people who are sleeping outside in open CAN have a BATH at least .

It is OUR FAULT , the fault of common people too, we in are constant Race to be in the good books of GOD, give money but no one gives a damn where is that money being spent or how is it being spent. Yes I have given my 11 pounds or 100 pounds, to make GOD smile at me. The money slowly makes its way to the pockets of the so-called care takers of our religion , none of our problem..

Sikh gurudwaras are so RICH, They have so much money in their banks why don’t they hire some houses, build halls where at least the people who have been stupid enough to come leaving their warm home for the dreams of pasters greener , can at least sleep in the warmth. Every leader or office bearer comes and promises EXACTLY like a politician back home , only to disappear once the speech finishes.. Any wedding I go to the caretakers are always asking for donations , for this building fund that fund.. I MEAN WHY it makes me so mad , and whats worse is people yes US LOT , standing there and making a BEE LINE to give that donation , OH YEs god is looking at us , he is happy.. I AM SORRY BUT I WISH AND PRAY THAT GOD DOESN’T GET HAPPY AT SUCH ACTIONS.

People here in uk are LOADED they are multi rich yet they wont do anything for anyone , but then I guess that’s how they have become rich by not giving or spending.

Also those who are reading this post back in india PLEASE FOR GOD SAKE , Stop this madness of coming abroad , Things are not so good,  I know most of you wont believe me you will all come or try to come .. but in that case come with a return ticket , check things out .. at least have a way to get back .

I am not sure what the SIKH channel has done for these people, I will do some more enquiries about that and put it up. But I doubt if anything would be done .. In our culture we are quick to portray the problems, the miseries of others but when it comes to help we first see how much We will benefit from this all AND then help others.

Really sad after hearing about all this, the lure of greener pasters is bringing so much misery for these young men. 10 class FAIL in india have managed to get further studies visa’s , by giving money to agents and all. How are the people who have looted these kids , put these kids in so much misery sleeping at night.. Tonight when they sleep in the warmth of their BED .. I wish every window in their house cracks open so they can feel the CHILL of the Cold in their bones .. and they remember that these boys are sleeping out in the open in that COLD CHILL.

I am not asking you to view the video but just in case you want ot check it out yourself ..

Last night I came back very late at night and went straight to sleep… Got up went for my run as I was changing to get ready I picked up my phone to see if i had any calls or anything, We had a busy shift and did not get time to talk to a few of my collegues, So I was expecting a few messages .  There were about 20+ messages and few missed calls … Then I went to check my inbox and wow so many emails, I rarely get so many emails other than junk.. but this time the inbox had some very familiar names All asking if I was doing ok.

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!!

Ok people an update on the previous article I wrote London Dreams

My cousin after visiting places finally got 2 or 3 avenues to go… He was introduced to a person who works for a Bakery. Which was about two hours drive from Birmingham.

First they asked him to get a bank account set up, we went to the bank for some reason my cousin wanted to open an account in the Indian bank “Punjab national bank” that have a branch in Birmingham on Soho road. We went there They would not accept the Indian passport as form of Identity, How weird is that, An Indian bank will not accept a INDIAN PASSPORT WOW..

Anyway we were told they need a UK Address, Mine will not work because for proof they need some official document with my cousins name and UK Address, Now how do we do that, someone suggested getting my Electric or Gas connection in his name, Called the board to do so Guess what they asked.. YESSSSS  Proof of address and a Bank account for direct debits — Catch 22 or what ..  Then came a suggestion to apply for a provisional license… when it comes back it will have the address and name .. So applied for it.

6 days later the license arrived, another trip to bank, To our surprise they need TWO proofs, why the guy did not tell us on first visit god knows, I guess the Indian mentality of making people come a few times is still there in them. By this time I was pissed off by the guy, I had a few words with him, after 2 -3 minutes his English finished, he turned to Punjabi, his manager came apologized.

We went home this time applied for a national insurance number, everyone needs it to work in uk, luckily there was nothing required by the UK Office, just a name and address, the NI number came in 4 days. So now we had two proofs of addresses.

THIRD trip to the bank was successful, phew …

After all this again my cousin went to these job people, they were happy he got the bank account, but oh they forgot to mention the NI number… He needs to get that now… BUT VOILA yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy we were one step ahead, we already had it… showed it, The guy did not have anything to say, I guess he thought he has put us off for another week, so it was
“KAL nu phone kariyo 1:30 Waje” call me tomorrow at 1:30…

Tomorrow 1:30 came, called ooops he forgot to tell , the cousin needs to have a medical card too, Till all this was going on They had not told where the job was, Hours of Job, Money. Why would they want the medical card I have no clue, so we went to my GP, talked to the lovely lady at reception, My GP plays hockey with me so it did not take long to get registered with him, we had the card in a hour.

Back to the guy, he could not think of anything else so, Job was there , they will pick up my cousin at 6AM in morning , 2 hours drive, work there for the 10hours shift , then drive back.. To start next day again… And LISTEN to this they will pay £4 an hour, with one hour taken off for lunch.

The reason to point this out is, he is living with me so he has no rent, no electric-gas, council anything to pay for, or even pay for the food. If he had to pay for all that DO YOU THINK IT’S WORTH WORKING SO HARD… and being PAID PEANUTS… To start at 6 he is getting up at 5 in morning and each day he reaches home around 9 or 10pm depending on traffic and all others who need dropping off from the van. Last week for two days the bakery stopped working for 3- 4 hours due to the current economic conditions, they don’t have that much orders, so he is NOT paid for those hours.

It is true that he will get £4 or £5 an hour which is roughly about Rs.400 an hour in India, That is a LOT of money… but then a Loaf of bread here is between 75p to £2 depending on brands, a cauliflower is for £1, that is ONE PIECE. A Single mango fruit is for 99p. I am sure you will get the idea suddenly £4 an hour is not enough money.

I think people in India forget that though earning pounds, you need to spend also in pounds…

Anyway people London dreams are not that lucrative anymore… so THINK…

By the way my cousin is on phone for another job will tell about that laterzzzz
