Cricket is a funny game don’t you think, Na I don’t mean the way India are playing at the moment in the Second test against  England getting thrashed . so much for being a spin playing nation who has world-class spinners and what not .. Well here we are our spinners can’t get wickets .. while the foreigners are getting all the wickets …

Our  batsmen well again can do bugger all.. they are getting out to SPINNER which they are supposed to play properly and Experts in.. Anyway forgetting about that .. Cricket is a funny .. it’s the only game where if you hit a ball out of the ground you get 6  runs or 6 points ..

But here is a thought – > There is this batsmen all padded up with a helmet on , Pads all over him , leg pads – thigh pads - gloves , protecting him all over .. and yet there  is this guy sitting outside without a shirt , a beer in hand relaxing and a BALL HITS HIM.. what happens the Batsmen gets  6 runs .. and the bloke nothing ..  other than a BUMP on his head … :)

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

Have You seen the Olympic opening ceremony, Especially when they all come out the athletes I mean representing their countries .. Now there are some countries which we have never heard of , The opening ceremony is the only time we hear the names . I mean at least I have not heard of some of them ,  Where do these  countries exist and how come only during Olympics we find them, I bet the person who is announcing the names of the countries is just sitting and making up the names ..

and Here is the team from  “Make-up-Istaan” or  “Made-Up-istaan”  .. and then I think the same man runs, changes his jacket and come out with a different flag “he-is-Back_istaaan”

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

I had this brain wave ,  We are lucky nowadays that phones have gone digital and with the advent of mobile phones things have changed a lot , But cast you mind back to the good old days .. Those big Black Telephones.. which have a Dialler and you have to put the tip of your finger to dial the number ….

Right Ne think about the emergency numbers , WHO was the intelligent person who decided on the numbers 999..   Now imagine there is an emergency , someone is laying on the road hit by a truck or something , you run to the nearest phone booth  and it is that OLD dialler phone ..

You are rolling the digit 9.. and then  letting it go ..

rolling again and letting it go ..

rolling the number 9 and then letting it go,.

Operator – “What’s the emergency ” ..

You– “Well its OK .. the person is DEAD now ” .. it takes so long to dial the Three numbers .. :)

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

Ok  Another Thing.. Has anyone of you ever walked into a room and Forgotten .. what you wanted or the Reason you came to that room to .. Right .. what do you do .. You stand and then you ask yourself

“WHY DID I COME INTO THIS ROOM” .. off course in your own mind,  WHYYYYYYYYYYY.. why do you ask that ..

Because .. YOU Don’t know why you are in the ROOM .. so why will you ask yourself  for HELP :)

PS:- Monday is here another start to the week, Have a great week people .. enjoy it to its fullest.. Hope you had a great weekend.

PSS:- I have removed the post the controversial one,  Thank you to everyone who read it and commented it .. and thank you for all the emails I have received , I am blessed to have you all as my good friends .. God has been kind to me .. THANK YOU EVERYONE. I was chatting to another Good blogger who said to me , Never ever let anyone Treat you like SHIT.. and that was the reason I put the post .. :)  Thank you TBAB..

PS:- Images courtesy Google images.

I saw this new serial that has started , the producer is AAMIR KHAN a big bollywood actor, I must say I was impressed that he has taken upon himself to show us people of india what is the reality that is taking place. the first episode was based on female Foeticide, a couple of stories were told about how people in our nation have gone so bad.  The people who go on and on about India shining need to look at the hard facts and work towards it , Just by saying its india shining things will not work .

The most amazing part that I liked( i am being sarcastic, it made me so angry ) in was the replies given to a question by common people who is what the mentality of indians is , and the one that I keep harping on and on wherever I make comments or write a post , We who live in cities and big metros and consider ourself educated, we all say oh the problems start from small towns , from villages from the not so educated , or if some feminists are to be believed its the MEN.. YET the Reality is different most of the evil of killing a girl child inside the womb of a mother , Or killed once she is born are done by the EDUCATED , The clever lot.  It’s the Rich , the educated, the ones living in the cities who started this all and its not just the MEN who do it , Women are also involved in this and in a big number too…

What was again more horrific was a story where the lady says that it was her MOTHER IN LAW who pushed the baby in the baby chair from the top of the stairs , since the Daughter in law gave birth to twin girls..

How the mother in law helped in doing the wrong against the daughter in law.

WHY are women doing this to other women.. PLEASE FOR GOD SAKE DONT SAY THAT IT IS BECAUSE OF THE WAY WOMEN ARE TREATED IN SOCIETY OR because of How men treated them. (which by the way is the latest trend) ..

There were clips shown where majority of the WOMEN doctors are helping in killing the child, So why is a women killing another Female.. The doctor is supposedly educated.. WHY are the Feminists who go on and on , on various issues Why don’t they get together and do something about such women .. it is estimated that the killing of a girl child in the womb is in lakhs about 10 lakhs of them a year .. and all for 2 thousand rupees.

I go to a lot of blogs and read the article and also read a lot of Comments by a LOT of EDUCATED, INTELLIGENT people .. they make me laugh for I think those people do only one thing which is COMMENT, or press the thumbs down buttons , They don’t have the audacity to know what actually is happening, You say one word against a female and you become the worst person living and if by chance you are a male who has written it , all hell breaks loose…

140 doctors were found who would help you get rid of a baby girl, majority of the doctors are WOMEN doctors,  It was shown LIVE 7 years ago yet none of those doctors have been charged they are still practising their profession freely, YET NONE OF THE WOMEN oriented organisation have done anything to stop these women.

It is true men are responsible for all that is wrong happening to the women in india BUT there are a LOT a LOT of women too who are equally responsible , Yet most of the effort that is made to bring women up to par is by showing or telling how men are bad.

The show was really an eye-opener, brings out a very dark dirty bad side of the nation.

EACH ONE OF US has to open the eyes , EACH one of us need to start TODAY and change ourself, How many of us have stopped , or made an effort to stop something going wrong, majority of us have actually turned our backs and walked a different way , rather than stand up and MAKE SOME NOISE.

I leave you with this beautiful song, 

WE all need to wake up and stop wasting time on useless issues and concentrate on issues which are almost trying to change the whole Indian generation, for 1000 boys there are 900 girls .. and if you take this to lakh or crore boys imagine where it goes . As shown in the episode there are men who are not getting girls for marriage , so they are ending up BUYING women from different states or places .. and using them.. This big difference in sex ration has brought a lot of other problems too, It is TIME WE WAKE UP.. else in few years time we will be again wasting time on this issue as it will go cancerous and unable to mend..

The same way as we are wasting time now on issues which in my eyes are maybe not that important as The female foeticide is in the current scenario.. IF all of us put our hands together , things can change BUT only if we want to , if we STOP and DO something about it Rather then looking the opposite way …

I have been thinking of the coming sports spectacular in august time this year yeah the olympics, yes we have  the olympics 2012 … I remember watching the opening ceremony in 2008 , that was held in Beijing china , I am sure everyone will agree to that , IT was a spectacular It was something worth watching – it was the best ever so far,  china did wonderful in 2008.. the stadiums they built all of them were super awesome but then thinking about it all , IT is really amazing what you can do with no human rights and a billion slave labourers.. :) ooops

So this year we have it in uk, although work is in full progress, sadly we have very stringent human labour rules but BUT.. BUT.. oh yes BUT .. The biggest problem we are going to face in UK for olympics is if  health and safety get hold of it, we who live in uk, know how that works ..  the claim for everything culture has also gone out of hand , people don’t use common-sense which apparently is not that common anymore.

Anyway coming back to the health and safety If they take it upon themselves to make sure this year olympics is held as per all their rules , I am wondering rather I am sure of the changes that will happen…

First of all  lets take the hurdles race, they will have Ramps put up , WELL  its health and safety issue how will someone jump over this hurdle, it is so risky they may fall down, hit their leg on the hurdle, or worse still some smart brains might just sue them for putting hurdles on a perfect straight TRACK.. :)  imagine all the suing that will take place for not putting the hurdles properly :)

Secondly imagine when they  do a risk assessment on the Javelin throw .. asking fellow athletes some questions and the HORRIFIC look they will have when they are told the Javelin has to be thrown “YOU ARE NOT GOING To throw it”  .. ARE YOU .. noooooooooooooooooo..   

Same with boxing, A Russian or indian or any other county Boxer is Boxing with an English boxer, The moment he gets a Jab .. SUE THE COUNTRY .. You can’t hit somebody else .. It is an ASSAULT… :) They might just call the police and you may just be charged with Section X of XYZ act.. :)

To put matters worse we will have the teachers and the education ministry will have their people Slogan-ing and rallying saying We can’t have Races … We can’t have anyone win the race .. it will upset the others, We can’t have Winners.. All the racers will be given the Gold medal.. no winners no losers.. :)

The weird and pressured regime of health and safety in UK :) It has gone bonkers here anyone and everyone who can sue or put a claim for something is doing it , I so wonder something where has common sense gone.

I mean remember those good old days when we all had something that was called COMMON SENSE..   in those days.. When we saw a big hole in the road and we stepped aside to crossed it, If we saw a tile or a slab not put properly we avoided stepping on it , or we put a foot feel how it was and then put the second foot on..

oh WOW, how did you learn to do that, See a hole and cross it .. Well my parents told me not to be a MORON and I just carried on from there …

Here in UK if you happen to go for a walk in a park or anywhere and there is a pool or water reservoir in it , you will see all these signs around it at every possible place or a  Big FENSE  saying ..“Dont go in the water …  you will fall and YOU MAY drown ..” I mean have we gone so stupid that we don’t realise we may drown.

Another thing that makes me so angry is the bloody political correctness … no one can say anything because someone can be offended, You cant say this or that, have to be so conscious about it , I think that if someone does get offended then SO WHAT..  whats wrong with it, It’s not as if a bomb has been exploded by Al qaieda killing hundreds ..

You know when we were kids  , we came home  told our parents

“he called me an idiot “

Parents said  “don’t worry about it , he is an idiot too”..

Nowadays the child will cry and the parent will start to cry too and the usual moan will start Oh I am offended,  I am so offended  and I have rights ..

To all those people let me tell you  WELL SO WHAT be offended, nothing happens you are an adult .. deal with it .. Haven’t heard of anyone dieing of being offended.. GROW UP

And I bet now that most of you have read it please don’t go about saying Oh I have read this article by Bikram and I am offended .. I am so offended reading this article…

It was funny reading today’s news , I read it online as the Tv channels which are supposedly very good are utter nonsense and hardly give any news. They are more into how to throw those big words at people about some incident and make it a habit to repeat it every 20-30 minutes .. the whole day long.  I could not believe what I saw the other day , during the india-Sri Lanka match which ended in a tie, during one of the overs only 5 balls were bowled.  Since the match ended in a tie that one extra ball “COULD” have been a match winner, but its a game things happen.  Had India Lost , Or won no one would have mentioned this over, but because it was a tie..  This Tv channel hurriedly put up a chat show with three or Two other supposedly cricket knowing people and Went on and on and on and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn (I guess you get the hint) about how the umpires made a blunder and How india “COULD” have won how india was ROBBED of the win ..

I watched the show as I had nothing to do and it was more of a comedy show, I have never laughed in my life as much as I laughed at that show, what a waste of time .. there were three people talking of one incident. Each one said the SAME thing on every question.. More hilarious was each of them says “OH nothing can be done about it “, the match is over. I mean if the match is over then why spend so much time on this particular incident… wasting so much time .. when there are aplenty more reasons where debates , discussions need to be held.

Is their such a need to create such a hoo la-la, a Big issue on such incidents.  I mean let’s think of it logically (yupp I can surprise you all sometimes, talking of logic, yes you read it right.. Read on)

Had the one ball been bowled

The batsmen could have taken a Run- hit a four - hit a six and if the match went on as it did India could have won , But on the other hand the Bowler Might have taken a wicket too, the batsman might have tried to hit a six and holed out to the fielder in the deep losing his wicket,  It could have been such a good ball that the batsman had to defend it rather than take any run.. SO MANY permutation and combinations , the result could have been entirely different had any of this happened.  Yet NONE of the esteemed people sitting on the discussion table said anything about it .. OH NO India was robbed of the victory.. Thank god they did not come out with saying the umpires are BIASED against the Indian team.  or maybe they did I was so busy laughing my head off I did not listen to that part.

This is the reason why I get so angry sometimes reading other news somewhere which never ever gets mentioned, No one in the nation gives a DAMN about it,  Let me give you an example..

I have been following news about a DGP (director general Police) Jails, Mr. Shashi Kant, he is up in arms against the Drug mafia operating in Punjab jails, the drug mafia he says is backed  by some powerful people, The DGP is wanting to eradicate this menace, I don’t know what agenda he has in doing that But lets consider it he is doing so for the betterment of the society and sincerely eradicating the drug mafia,  He has been very outspoken in media talking about the connections between the drug lords and political leaders, which has ruffled quiet a lot of feathers in the political circle.. So what does the Government do I will quote THE TRIBUNE’s News

“The state government has withdrawn all three official vehicles assigned to him leaving him without any official vehicle for himself or his security officials.”

He has been criticised by the state government for airing his views openly, Instead of helping him the Govt is trying to stop him..

On the other hand there is another Top Cop, The SSP of Chandigarh who had a  community interaction in Punjab University Chandigarh to speak about efficient policing, In his interaction he had NO EXAMPLE to give about it in Real life so what he did was take examples of Films the REEL life how Amitabh bachan  does policing in “ZANJEER” or how Ajay Devgan works inside system to bring about reformation in the movie “SINGHAM”..  It is very funny that the SSP could not find any such heroism or bravado or working with full commitment while on duty for what they are being paid for in the Police force..

Such is the sad sad condition of our  police functioning , One side there is a person who MAY GENUINELY be trying to help get rid of a menace he is being stopped on the other examples are being given to work as our REEL hero’s work how is it possible to do that, I wonder.

One of the worst news That I read was two criminals who had kidnapped a child and held the 2-year-old for a ransom, ( luckily the police recovered the child within 6-7 hours which is commendable of them and WELL DONE TO THE TEAM of the officers who made it possible, Yes our police too can work miracles but only when they want to ...) Anyway that is not the reason I am talking about the Court has given a sentence of LIFE TERM to these kidnappers .. THIS I want to challenge because if you remember my post on justice for a 10 month old, the judge was reducing the sentence , from 10 to 7 or something like that years .

CAN YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE how can this be justified in our own justice or law that a kidnapper gets a life term while a rapist who has done this deed on a 10 month old is allowed to have a reduced term..

So here I think the law is telling us NO dont kidnap kids but its ok to rape them  and leave then scared for Life.   Please all who are reading me tell me AM I an IDIOT to think that way or that I am complete mad.

 

ANYWAY on some good news India has qualified for the olympics in hockey, defeating france 8-1 , CHAKK TE FATTE .. and this my dear people could be something te celebrate after all HOCKEY is our national game ( i hope there are people out there who know that hockey is our national game) .. only if we spend half that much money as spent on cricket, It is indeed such stupidity and hypocracy of our people who don’t even know what the national game is since cricket has taken over us all . I am happy today to have read this news, And I will be here watching the matches played God willing India will put a better show then the multi million dollars rich Cricketers who are untouchables .. .. Well done to the indian team..

Bombay high court reduces punishment for a  man who sodomised a 10 month old girl because the man lost control over himself because he was living away from his family.

“Trial judge was aware of the fact that the appellant (Harijan) was married and (had) two children and his family was staying in Uttar Pradesh… No doubt, this by itself may not be a reason for lenient sentence. However, had it been considered in the proper perspective, the learned trial court probably would have imposed lesser sentence than 10 years,” Justice M L Tahaliyani wrote in his judgment recently.  

IHM Has blogged about it  and Shilpa Sharma too

PT has created an online signature campaign to protest against the reduced sentence of Ramkishan Harijan who sodomised a ten months old baby girl.  His sentence was reduced by Bombay High Court because his lawyer argued that the rapist was poor,  a father of two, living alone, away from his native place and therefore probably he lost control over himself.

If you think this rapist doesn’t deserve a reduced sentence, please do sign this petition – to sign click here.

In the petition a lot of questions have been asked But apart from all those question I have to add one of my own which I don’t see anyone asking .. THIS LAWYER how can he argue, He knows what has happened .. I can understand the data protection and all that CRAP and PALLAVA over lawyer-client Confidentiality etc etc. But still If I am not wrong as the news says the LAWYER ARGUED with the court..  My questions are

1. Does this lawyer not have babies in his house

2. Does this lawyer not have Females in his house

3. Is he so blind to make money that he doesn’t give two hoots about who or what he is representing

Is this not the norm we as human beings follow ignoring the reality.

This sick individual who had LOST CONTROL was a neighbour, he actually took the baby from the house to a deserted place where he committed the crime. What sort of world are we living in where we can’t even trust our neighbours.

I would like the contact details of that lawyer too who helped this person, The lawyer indeed is a genius .. Maybe he can help get the INNOCENT PEOPLE some sentences since he is clever enough getting the Culprit off the hook.

How the hell does he sleep at night.. outrageous… Along with this petition there should be one more that should call upon people to boycott such lawyers who will do anything for lure of money. Is this the justice he vowed to uphold…

Doing this to a small baby who could not protect herself.. This guy should be hanged The only reducing of sentence that I think would be valid is that  instead of the electric chair it should be via hanging

WELL done to the lawyer Kudos to him..

So much also to the judges who are supposedly very learned and know the law.. did they not feel or SEE what had happened , what are they trying to show the world that it is ok to Rape a 10-MONTH-old, spend some time in jail, Come out and do it all over again.

The defense lawyer wanted the court to be lenient on the man because he was away from his family and “simply lost control”. If you do not agree with this, please sign this petition.

What is family is it only wife and kids or does it involve others too like parents and siblings .. BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN LIVING AWAY FROM FAMILY FOR more than a DECADE now .. SO

Does that mean that tomorrow I can go and kill someone or do something else very nasty because I LOST CONTROL, we human beings have all lost control sometime in our life are we all entitled to do something this heinous, going by the LAWYERS argument and THE COURTS acceptance of the same IT is a valid reason.

I said KILL because in my eyes killing is a lesser evil then RAPING A 10-MONTH-old kid who did not even understand what was going on with her, who could not even protect herself. Does anyone think like me or am i the only idiot thinking this way.

I have been doing rounds of the court for some personal matter , EUREKA maybe I should LOSE CONTROL and hopefully then the situation will get resolved .. PATHETIC.

After the previous post, I thought lets have a laugh .. the way Petrol prices are skyrocketing I found the following funnies to smile at ..

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.

The riots in london and now spreading to birmingham and all have got people worried about me .. this made me smile I know I should not given the gravity of the situation.. so many of blogger friends have shown the concern, I cant tell you how much blessed I feel. Blogosphere has been so very nice to me .. Thank you, all of you who took time and effort to write the emails and send me sms , and the comments on the previous article.

PSS:- Have a look at this .. can you recognise anyone .. do inform http://catchalooter.tumblr.com/

Indian team has been found wanting in the match, they have had to play some tough cricket and look what happened.. What amazes me is the way we have lost the match ..

India needs a firm grip over the way things are going on , a lot of patching needs doing , we have spent so much time on the IPL that the matches where it matters .. well we have seen what has happened .. the so-called top 3 did not do well at all, I don’t want to be mean to the little master but will he ever perform when the Indian team needs him the most .. I don’t see many matches where he has dug his heels and said I AM NOT GETTING OUT ..

Bhajji came and hit some shots but it was too late for anything ..

I know test match is a tough cricket .. India did not look tough enough.. I don’t know how the politics works in the team, but we never looked like a winning team, While watching the match in the first innings when things were not going the english way , Yet they looked a TEAM. a tough team..  and they all worked together , Not One player or top 3 or whatever .. they worked together .. If strauss could not make runs the tail ender Broad was taking india for a ride.  The english opener did not score many runs but the other players picked up ..

Indians had a sorry score card.. first innings Broad took us apart and this innings Bresnan took us apart.. I feel sorry for our boys and I hope they get there act together ..

We have the talent but why are we not giving them the chance, why are the likes of rohit , virat not there , we play a lot of cricket the ipl , the one dayers and then we went to the Caribbean , we should have been on the ball raring to go but alas it did not happen…  I know many of the players will make it a excuse of too hectic a schedule , well all i will say to them is say no to IPL… which i doubt any of the players will do because of the Moolah involved..

Sorry if i sound harsh but It was hurting watching the matches and the way we have played , A few players did not go to west indies what were they going back home should they not have been preparing for this tour, I a ma big big fan of Zaheer and Yuvraj but I felt they looked Unfit , they had not been going to the Gym while in india .. working out , keeping fit.. Our team is not as fit as the english team.

We are a team of individual stars hoping that they will perform, it seems we can never play as a TEAM.  Look at the fitness of both the teams and I am sure anyone can see ..  One side ready to perform at the highest level, the other side individual left to their own devices HOPING they will perform ..

When we are a top team a number one team .. a lot depends on the bench strength but we have been found wanting ,  when it loses a pace man who has a lot of variety in his armoury we don’t have a replacement …

Sehwag is to come in the next match lets see what he brings .. He is a great player we all know but what can he alone do, Yet I do have this feeling that with him in the team the opponents bowlers will have something to think about so that might work in our favour.  I hope Gambhir comes back too..

What I mean about being tough and fit is that on the first day of the second test match Gambhir was rolling and diving in the nets on the arm supposedly with a bad injury or broken,  yet he is sitting outside injured , where is the theme gone when the going gets tough the tough get going,  Thats when boys become MEN, I would have expected Gambhir to walk out and Play, there have been players who have actually played with broken bones, I remember Kumble bowling with a broken jaw.. Now that man was tough he would not sit outside miss a game .. Thats the type of players we need when we have such high-profile tours, Winning west indies we were complacent.

The english team has put us right where we are, sitting on glory majority of the time.. I hope the third test brings something new and our boys forget this loss and come out raring and playing as a team .. I know we can’t win the series now but lets not lose it boys .. GET up and DO your best …

There has to be some toughness that needs to come, it is a big test about our character we have been very sloppy in every department of  the game , its time we showed the world why we ARE the number one team in the world and toughen up..

Hopefully Sehwag will bring that toughness in the team..  We are a side known for our batting and batting is what has let us down , the bowlers though not at par with the english yet did a good job for india..  its time the players did something with the bat and showed that they deserve to be in the team..  It is time to perform boys… All the best …  .. See you at edgbaston, birmingham.. Hopefully I will see you play on the weekend … My tickets are on way ..

 

TRI COLOUR IS THE COLOUR OF OURS — COME ON INDIA SHOW THEM STARSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssssss … .

A lot of thoughts go by ones mind when idle , today as I sat in my car to drive to work, I had this  how do I say chaos of thoughts and none matched the one that just went by it was all going in tangents, at one time I was home and the next I was thinking of Cricket or the Fast taken by Anna Hazaare. I had to literally sit down and SHAKE my head severely to bring it back in sync with normalcy :), if that is possible.

Well I am trying to jot down the thoughts now these may hurt a lot of people so I am sorry to them but as usual would ask them to think on the wider picture and logically.. The recent few events that have happened back home have been good – bad and Ugly.. I mean world cup happened I wanted to write a post on it but blogosphere is full of articles so I did not post though I had one in the drafts, The whole nation became one in that one last week of the matches , australia-Pakistan-Sri Lanka all defeated in a row thanks to some good cricket played by our team .. but other then that it was the spirit of the indians which came to the fore how we all got together, here in UK too it was evident everyone in pubs wearing the Blue shirts and cheering till throats went hoarse .. 

That was the GOOD…  

Then came the chain of events where Anna hazaare along with a whole lot of people took this fast to get the Govt of india to their knees , which was a Very good thing that finally the Govt. got so scared that they could not afford something happening to Anna , they had to relent to it, brings to mind the satyagraha taken by Indians against the British people but there was a STARK DIFFERENCE at that time the whole country was one but now only a handful which was a shame , Out of Billions of People just a meagre few .. I know a lot of the Intelligent people out there will say it’s a START, but I am as usual cynical start of what, Things can’t get achieved by a few going on a fast , their have to be a vast majority of people who need to give there support.  Not forgetting about the rumours that just came after the fast was broken many of the distinguished people in the group had political problems , I will not get into the details cause somewhere in my heart I knew this would happen. True there are some genuine people who want things to change but those genuine people are few, and as the poem i posted I don’t believe in the Khadi wearing leaders.   They are all the same , some have hundreds of skeletons in their cupboard , some just One but they do have.

Well I don’t want to go on and on about that , I do support the Cause started by Anna Hazare, but as I said earlier I don’t support the khadi wearing people, To me I still feel that we need to make a loud noise to make sure the DEAF hear us and that will only come true if the current generation and the one coming up behind will get together, I mean I was watching the IPL match between Kings XI and One more team I forgot the name I think it was Mumbai indians and the stadium had more people in it then the number of people who actually GENUINELY went out and supported the anti corruption Cause. That is the reality of our great nation.

That was BAD

I have so many question running around, a soldier in the army gets paid to fight for the country for which he is ready to give his life, they live in conditions where the majority of so-called Desh Bhagats wont even survive one day, What they are doing is real work then why do we start comparing a sports man as a soldier of the country as it happened in the Cricket match against Pakistan, Everyone saw the crowd there, people spent LAKHS of rupees to get a ticket to watch that match but I am sure NONE of them spent a thousand to buy a bus ticket to go to Delhi to sit with the people who were fasting.

How come none of the sportsmen who when it comes to recognition come in herds and then moan how they are paid less or not thought of , come in support.  I mean with no disrespect to the supporters of GOD of cricket Sachin Tendulkar, I am myself a fan of his and he is GOD , Why could he not have come in support and gone and sat there for a fast, I mean he is made his life, his future generations life living in india , the love and affection he has got, I do feel that someone like him Should have supported the cause and then MAYBE the cricket frenzy public would have done more and not just their are a few who can be named who are willing to take millions from the nation but give nothing in return and i say nothing BECAUSE when they lose they are not accounted for. none of them say of I wont take the match fee for this one because we lost.

True the govt has agreed to the terms of the Cause but that is it , Nothing is going to happen the govt has just agreed to put the bill in the session whether something actually takes place once passed we have yet to find out, the reason being each and every leader will have to step down or brought to justice cause they are the Khadi wearing politicians and that to bright White starched ironed ones.  If we think something will change then who are we kidding.

That is UGLY 

HENCE my thought that till we ALL get together MILLIONS-BILLIONS  and make that NOISE the noise that will wake up the deaf-blind govt we have things will not change.

I have been living in the UK for quite a few years now, over the years I have seen a lot of changes take place both with the attitude of the people living here and those who want to come abroad. I am sure a few of you reading will disagree with me over the issue that loads of people are doing their utmost legal, illegal or whatever means to get out of India, be it educated , uneducated or whosoever. You find all sorts of people spending all their life savings to get out of the country. I am not going to argue or start writing here about the reasons why they are doing so, cause there are umpteen reasons and NO these people are not traitors or otherwise that they are leaving the country.

 Anyway the reason for this note is the terrible conditions of our people out here , I did write a note earlier too the living conditions and work conditions being faced by majority of the people coming, I had told the story of my cousins who have come over, well let’s say it does not look very good for them. One of my cousins did get a job as FARM HELP, now then I have to have a little laugh here, the reason why he came to this country was to get away from working on the farm back home, they have land and all but NA can’t do that, perfectly happy to work in a farm as a HELP here cause he gets about 4 -5 pounds.. How sad is that…

 But then none of the people back home want to listen to this, I go to the gurudwara sahib here and see all these young people coming in for food , god knows how they are managing the roof on their head, the situation of girls is really pathetic won’t go into details on that ..

Anyone who wants to get some work done at home can go and ask these people to work for them for anything between 10-20 pounds A DAY. Yes people you heard it right, A DAY and they will come and do anything for the day from gardening to cleaning to ironing… The reason I am saying is because I got asked by a lovely girl and a guy if I had work at home that they could do, I said no since I am rarely at home with my job and extra work, they started to plead explaining how good they are and how trustworthy they are .. I felt quiet bad but there is nothing that I could do for them other then politely refuse, but this is happening.

I was reading some news about the pathetic situation of people in London especially Southall, where a vast majority of population is Asian, no wonder it’s called Little India, It the same story as when India was known to be the GOLDEN BIRD, how every other nation came to plunder it of its prosperity, in the new era England was supposed to have  ‘streets paved with gold’ , but not anymore … one needs to see the ques in front of local gurudwaras to see the situation, one good thing though everyone is friendly no talk of being a hindu-muslim or sikh .. All are equal standing in the queue for the free langar.

People are sleeping in BINS, or even phone booths Yet the mass influx or the want to come to LONDON one of the richest cities in the world is increasing day by day, I also remember telling one of the friends in India about the situation, there reply was “I am jealous, I don’t want them to do good as I did”.. 

A few months back there was some sort of pity or what you call sympathy for these people who had come to pastures green, but over time I have seen this sympathy going down… as a few localites here feel that they dont have any compassion for these people as this is SELF-INFLICTED,

1. Why is there such an urge to come here…?

2. Why can’t people work as hard as they work here back home

3. Why can’t they work with same respect?

4. Why can’t you work in your OWN FIELD?

With the opening of borders for Euro union it has become very hard for outsiders to get a job, as the job has to be advertised to Europeans and then to others, with current economic scenarios, lots of jobs have been lost, thousands have been made redundant.

Please please All who read this, Please make sure before you or anyone you know who are contemplating to come abroad, you have the facts right, Do your spade work, find out if it is really any worthwhile coming all this way, Wasting the hard earned money of your parents or even putting them under Debt.

Everybody hopes to live in a better environment socially and economically. But it’s not possible for people to get that without struggle. It is the responsibility of the person to determine how much struggle is justified for the cause. The cause can’t be worth it, if the existence occurs merely from hand to mouth.
