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.. The Book Anyway I was going to write on who to blame about the situation Our India is in..

I have been reading a lot of news about how people have made or its become a tradition to blame Mr. Gandhi for it all.. Rubbishing Gandhi has become an unofficial national pastime, with each change in political scenario in the country these facts and slogans and Tamasha changes.. according to the will and wimp of the political parties ideology.. But whatever I have learned or did, Gandhi has to be blamed for some of his ways, He was not perfect.. he did make quiet a few mistakes, who doesn’t, So whats 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 69th anniversary of the martyrdom of Shaheed Sardar Bhagat Singh. The reason I am mentioning him is that in those turbulent times.. It was him who was as popular as Gandhi, I will say More then 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 and 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 was the only reason which made British to Leave India, the movement started by Gandhi. I think it was the 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, Chandrashekar Azad, Rajguru ,Udham Singh and Plenty more whom history has forgotten who embraced death in their early age They were all Jewels of the country conveniently forgotten by History Manipulators.

As I mentioned earlier because of political changes history has been so badly manipulated that we still think that it was only the indiscipline and non-cooperation movements started by Gandhi only helped in Independence, and this is religiously followed in all walks of life in India even to this day. WE forget that Today the same Congress , the KHADI wearing people , The so called people who are following Gandhi principles are the worst enemies we have… and These are the people the young fire brand freedom fighters cautioned us about..

Update:- the spelling in the title are worng I kno .. WHAT Independence!!!!

Sardari

Posted: April 12, 2010 in Family, Pagadi, random, Sardari, Soch


We all love Sardarji jokes. But do you know that Sikhs are one of the hardest working prosperous and diversified communities in the world. My friend told me about the following incident which I wish to share with you.

It has had a deep impact on my thinking.

During last vacation, his few friends came to Delhi . They rented a taxi for local sight-seeing. The driver was an old Sardar and boys being boys, these pals began cracking Sardarji jokes, just to tease the old man. But to their surprise, the fellow remained unperturbed.

At the end of the sight-seeing, they paid the cab hire-charges. The Sardar returned the change, but he gave each one of them one rupee extra and said,

“Son, since morning you have been telling Sardarji jokes.. I listened to them all and let me tell you, some of them were in bad taste. Still, I don’t mind coz I know that you are young blood and are yet to see the world..
But I have one request. I am giving you one rupee each. Give it to the first Sardar beggar that you come across in this or any other city.”

My friend continued, “That one rupee coin is still with me. I couldn’t find a single Sardar begging anywhere.”

MORAL:

The secret behind their universal success, is their willingness to do any job with utmost dedication and pride. A Sardar will drive a truck or set up a roadside garage or a dhaba, put a fruit juice stall, take up small time carpentry, … but he will never beg on the streets.

15. You actually Looked up up to check that there wasn’t a #9 on this list


duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wakey wakey

I am crying today .. oh yes , its just one of those days when nothing seems to go your way. I want to go home, let my mum fuss around me. Let her say how good i am , shower numerous praises on me.

Country roads .. take me Home ..
To the place I belong …
I hear a voice in the morning how she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin’ down the road I get the feelin’

That I should been home yesterday yesterday
TAKE ME HOME

*******

I have been a F*%&$£” looser all this time.. AHHHHHHHHHH I would kill someone today
Got up in morning, went the gym and did bugger all, cause the moment I went to do chest press the bloody machine broke…

Then thought leave the weights go for a swim, picked my stuff went to the changing room only to find that I had not got my trunks in the bag, I am very short tempered sometimes so by this time I was fuming at myself.

*******

Ended up going on the treadmill.. shower and came out to find Some Idiot had hit my car, HOW CRUEL can it be, it was parked perfectly fine so now I am without back lights, went into enquire if the cctv has got the number plate of the car for insurance purpose, Guess what a big NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…. the cctv is there but it was not recording.. the idiots had forgotten to put it to record, WHAT USE IS IT TO HAVE THE CCTV…. more AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

*******

Came to work to find that last night there was a power cut, so my machine had got rebooted, which meant all the work i had done after the last SAVE, was lost.. especially the SQL queries.. that had been written for testing that makes me MAD , cause it takes ages to get the query right, yesterday I had spent lot of hours optimising a query which was taking more than a hour to run , over internet to 26 minutes , I HAD LOST THAT …. more aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh my manager and a collegue have had earfull of my moaning today…

Its a CONSPIRACY .. a saazish.. it is a PLOT.. to bring me down,, everything is planning to bring me down … I thought I will write it down and take my anger over here… dont know if i will post this or not .. lets seee…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Visit the Niagara falls.

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

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

I also want to do white water rafting…

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

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

Speeding

Posted: January 20, 2010 in Angry, Hurts, random, Soch, Thinking

I had a horrific day yesterday and it was not snowing either. On my way to work, I had just finished talking on the phone. I usually take the motorway in mornings so as to reach office on time, in evenings i go through the town, as I am in no rush can afford going at a leisurly pace.

Well it had just gone past 6:20pm, dark outside, single lane traffic, clear sky. The speed limit on the road is 30MPH, thats 30 miles an hour, At the roundabout, I was to go straight on, I could see about 60 yards there is a set of traffic lights, which had just gone to amber ready to go to Red, Suddenly a flash motor car, Yeah you guessed it a BMW sped , overtook my stationary car, the car in front of me , did not give two hoots to traffic from right, the guy on the roundabout coming from right had to break sharp.

This guy went over and then a loud bang, I mean this was right in front of my eyes, The speeding car had went straighton, meanwhile the traffic lights had gone to Red, a young girl was crossing the road, BAM .. the car hit her, then the driver probably breaked hard , skidded went into the back of another car parked on the road.
I went over, parked my car , put the hazards on a few people had collected around the girl, Went to her , she was hurt, I rang 999 called for the ambulance and police.

A few people had gone over to the car, the driver was hurt, had a split head, clutching his harm, But I felt no remorse for him, wish i could just get up get the hockey stick from the boot of my car and BEAT the Shite out of this guy. What was the Rush that he drove so fast, Why cant people be more careful and drive within the limits, I can understand the rush to drive fast, do it .. Go to the car racing circuits get the animal out of you , unleash it there. Roads are not meant to drive rashly, they have been made to let people drive sensibly , to reach from one place to another.

The reason why they don’t go to the racing circuits is because there are better drivers then them out there, with better cars So they get to show off on the road. The speed limits are set for a Reason, Please follow them. Its 30MPH for a reason, A person has more chances of surviving the crash if hit by a car running at 30MPH or less, but the chances of survival reduce dramatically on a higher speed.

These are the Statistics…

20 mph – in a car accident involving a pedestrian at this speed there is a one in 40 chance the pedestrian will be killed.

30 mph – in a car accident involving a pedestrian at this speed there is a one in five chance the pedestrian will be killed.

35 mph – in a car accident involving a pedestrian at this speed there is a one in two chance the pedestrian will be killed.

40 mph – in a car accident involving a pedestrian at this speed there is a nine in ten chance the pedestrian will be killed.

Please Think. Watch it to see the impact.

Please be safe, If you are not interested in your own safety then you have no right to put others in danger. THINK before you go on speeding.

The poor girl was taken to the hospital, where she was found to have broken her pelvis, her shoulder and had other injuries all over. The guy he can rot in hell, was home after a few stitches.. While this girl would be in hospital for a long time , once she gets out it will be a long road to recovery not to mention the pain she, her parents, her well wishers will have to go through.

I am going as a witness to this accident I hope and prey the judge sends this guy to prison for a long time , takes his license away for ever, impounds his car send it to the crushers to be crushed. People who are reading this please if you see anything like this make sure you are a witness and dont be afraid to go in front of the jury, We all have a sense of responsibility and duty towards others. If we use the road then we should stand up against such attitude.

I wish harder sentences are given and people are brought to the book for such senseless driving, they should be tried for attempt to take life, as I wrote in my previous article. THE CAR IS A LOADED GUN, a tool to do serious damage with, it is a serious WEAPON.
Drink and Drive.

Beware this is gonna be a RANT.. and I am not in a good mood today, took me hour and half to reach work.. roads are icy.. and people dont know how to drive ahhhhhhh!!!!

I am sick and tired of this phrase. Especially when a fellow Indian asks me that question… Don’t get me wrong… its fair enough if a white guy asks me that… He does not know because for him all brown skin people are the same…

But when an Indian asks me I usually reply from where you are….

This is a common thing you enter a pub, if you meet someone for first time they will be like

“Kehda pind hai apna” (what village are you from)…

Reply- “Muktsar”…

Malwai hain ke Majhe da … (these are areas in Punjab; it is divided into areas… MALWA – DOAB- MAJHA etc)

I must say when I was in India I did not have a clue about this, but here in UK it is like that, further divisions nation-state-area… I bet it’s gonna go to neighbourhood too 🙂

So I have no idea what Muktsar falls under still… Depending on the area you are from, the circle you sit changes a lot especially in pubs or wedding halls.

I would like to reply to these people when they ask me Where am I from That

” Sat samundaron paar mera sohna watan

jida mishri warga paani
jithe zare zare which pyar

Yaar main uthon da
Jithe Jamiya Bhagat Singh Sardar

Does it matter where I from am?

Will it make me a better or bad person depending on the area?

OH YES… dont smile or think I have gone mad writing this… It does matter because it really is a big issue here in UK, among the Asian (Indian) community… I was surprised when “M” (short for Muthu) a friend from Tamil-Nadu found out that I was actually from Punjab, don’t know what he was thinking I was from originally, I guess a lot of people in south have names like Bikramjit SINGH 🙂 (Ok that was sarcy)… but If I am from Punjab does it make me a bad person or what… He stopped coming to my house, stopped taking my calls.

Till I was “BIK” it was fine, later I got to know from his girl friend who worked in the same office as me, that his parents were Brahmins, since I ate meat they had aked there son to stay away from me.. These are the same parents who stayed in my house for two months when there Son could not afford to buy a house and was living on rent, Why was he stupid enough to get his parents over dont ask me ?… I mean that’s hypocracy.. He went to pubs with me to drink… Here I must say he was/is ok with white people, I see him now and then in pubs with that group and its ok cause gora’s eat beef and Beef is not meat and not at all against his religion :).

I am really surprised in today’s day and age this sort of racism still exists, wonder how it is in India.

The problem with meat, I must laugh, here at McDonalds we get cheese burgers, If you ask for a cheese burger, it has a slice of MEAT in it, that meat is BEEF… So Mr. “M” has gone with me a hundred times for a quick bite, ordering cheese burgers… where did the religion go then eating all that Beef.

I really find it funny. If it is to be thought in region way then Punjab has always been higher in the chain, I belong to a JATT/Sikh which if I am not wrong was martial race equivalent to Kshatriya’s So I am higher in the chain in that sense too. So why would it be a problem to be friendly with me. This is not just my story I am sure it happens to a lot others too or has happened, I was chatting with another mate who is in chicago , he too had the same views, he was a bit over dramatic and said dont be friends with anyone other then same caste, same religion, same region.. But thank god I am not like that.. I feel all Humans are equal END OF.

I mean Mr. “M” when you bought your first car and borrowed money from me to pay for it, should you not have thought about asking which area I belong to at that time, the money was tainted.

It’s really sad that living in a foreign place we are so divided, we don’t find this in Pakistani community they stick together whatever region they are from, but Us Indians it is Punjab-south-north-east… Sikh-Hindu-Muslim Jatt-Majhbi-Brahmin
poor-rich etc etc etc…

Ah well I guess I have had my Rant for the day.. so I should shutup maybe there is something wrong with me , I am from Punjab not from India..

Am I Jinxed

Posted: January 7, 2010 in Angry, Life, My Thoughts., random, Sudden

I was reading a post from one of my favorite writers, where she mentioned about life coming back to a Circle after the holiday season got over. The late sleeping-getting up late just relaxing… Anyway

I have been feeling since a lot of time that I am jinxed or something cause mishaps – one of those things – knocks – accidents etc happen a lot with me, as we know the weather has been playing havoc here in UK, it’s not the weather but I think people have forgotten how to drive in such weather, have become less patient driving especially people with these luxury cars, sports cars they think they can cut in, drive fast basically do what they want to even on these treacherous conditions.

I have a sports car but I don’t do this ( OK now I know I am being modest about this ), no really I don’t, I do speed yes cause that’s the reason why I bought the car, but I know when not to. Anyway so there is me today morning woke up, the usual morning chores got ready for work, the roads were icy, the car was snowed under, cleared the pathway, put some hot water on the windscreens to get the ice off, started the car to warm up, while I watched tele to check on the news, nothing was reported .. So I set off, visited the gurudwara sahib on way, and hit the motorway. I have been starting off half hour early these days to cater for conditions.

Merrily driving listening to some punjabi music got the signs about an accident on the motorway at junction 5… Phewww I get off at junction 4 Saved… the slip road leading off the motorway was jam-packed, I thought maybe everyone is wanting to get off because of accident, So I got off, traffic lights go green, turn right to my dismay the exit I take was jam-packed, it was stand-still.. I am in the middle lane, carried on to take the third exit back to the motorway to go the long way to work.

Now there is a Set of lights to enter the roundabout, then another set of lights to leave the second exit (which is mine) and the Third set of lights to take the third exit to go back to motorway, HOW easy can it be OR how difficult can it be, anyway there I am Now in the FIRST lane to turn left easy peasy.. OH NO it is not cause there is MR. ARSEHOLE with his flashing two door Merc, who thinks so what if he is in the middle lane, he can put his foot down on the accelerator, cut me off, what is or was the rush I don’t have a clue, to his bad luck since I got a sports car mine also probably accelerates at same speed, So this Mr. HI FI.. Does that cuts me and I have to break sharp… what happens is anyone guess, Icy roads my car goes for a SPIN… and dham hits the barrier…

So a perfectly fine day gets ruined, I wish I was in uniform and in India should have got down and given a nice walloping to this person, he did not even get out, slowed the car and then zipped off… I am left with the front lights smashed, a dent on the side of the car and my head hurting cause I bumped it, I am very bad at this I don’t wear a seat belt , I know I know it’s so bad of me I am just not used to it.

But one good thing happened Lucky me, I rang the recovery guess what, they say oh we have a van out on the fourth exit he he he, so they were there and since my job is like that I have to go and report to a hospital so I was taken for first aid, and an hour later I was at my work, my car brought to the car park, it will be picked up on Saturday for repairs.

What a Start to the beautiful day, everything white and sun shining. I also learned something new today how people react or how much they care for you, I rang a friend (well i thought of them as friend, what they think, I know now) of mine at least 8 times, because how do I put it (which will not hurt my MANLY sentiments 🙂 ), I was a bit shaken it happened so sudden, they could not be bothered to reply back anyway We learn from every incident in our lives. Next time I should call somebody else ha ha ha.

So I thought I shall write this and get some sympathy votes he he he he … But it makes me wonder how things change in a second, AM I Jinxed or AM I JINXED, Ah well all part of life I guess… Wonder what is in store next time… Though I should thank the almighty god that I have not got hurt badly so far, its always been a knick here and there… But then god knows what’s gonna happen next will I be lucky or WILL I BE LUCKY 🙂

So please all reading this drive safe even in your posh cars we all know they drive very smooth and FAST.. Be safe, think of yourself and others on the road, Better be late then never AND PLEASE WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS 🙂 (look who is talking I know). Take care all and yes when someone is desperate to get hold of you do answer back it may be a emergency :).

I have been meaning to write this article for ages now, but somehow I never managed to get round to it. 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.

Then I started to write this Blog in October sometime, earlier I use to write a diary at night before going to sleep, everyday.. but for some reason I started this a few people were very happy. Over this blog I met a few people some good, some OK, I wont say bad because I think , No one is bad they are good for someone if not you.

Sometimes it makes me think that I am from a very old school, a school where patience, respect , love existed – nowadays I have seen it does not anymore..

Admi Sochta kuch hai
Karta Kuch hai
Hota kuch or hai..

Today 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. We wear it as a badge which says
‘main tujhe kabhi maaf nahi karoonga’

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. Why have people become so heartless, 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….

I don’t know why god has made me like this, or why I think like that, But I would never do what I have experienced even to my enemy, Thanks to this blog I think I got a few of those now 🙂 But as someone who has my heart and cares for me a lot said to me, forget about them, they are NOBODY, think of the people I have met over this, Some very decent people, Pallavi her highness.. It has been lovely to chat with her sometime, knowing them.

lekin mai toh beroak safar mein
is ek aur pehlu se hokar nikal chala,
jeevan ki aapa dhapi mein kab waqt mila
kuch der kahin par baith kabhie yeh soach sakun,
ki jo kiya kaha mana usme kya bura bhala…

(these are a few words stolen from Mr. Amitabh Bachan).

I think this is where we have reached we have got 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, unfaithful, uncaring, heartless, Because I don’t know which action of mine might hurt someone. 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, what right do they have to play with someones emotions. 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 :). Loosing a acquaintance or friend over trivial reason, a reason which is non existence. All I would say is such people will one day realise what they lost, by then it will be too late.

I wish i had the Ego or Impulse to severe my contact with people, But then that’s not me.

Anyway festive season is here, so Please god take care of all my friends, foes, anyone i know .. God bless all and everyone … New year is round the corner I wish we all make a promise to ourselves to be a better human being.
