It's ME & YOU who need to act

There is no super man or Bat man gonna come to fight for good, It is YOU and ME who need to ACT


It has been ages since I updated this blog. I guess I have lost my interest and patience to sit and write things that inspire me. Well, hope to get it soon and get back soon writing...

Applies to all the developing countries

/*****Dr. Abdul Kalam's Letter to Every Indian******/

Why is the media here so negative?

Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our
achievements?
We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his d
esert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.

In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.. Why are we so NEGATIVE? Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign TVs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology.

Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance? I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture, when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed India . For her, you and I will have to build this developed India. You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation.


Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.
Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours..
YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke. The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.
YOU say, say and say. What do YOU do about it?
Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give him a name - 'YOURS'. Give him a face - 'YOURS'. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International best. In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground links as they are.. You pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity… In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU? YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai .. YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah. YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds (Rs.650) a month to, 'see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else.'YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop, 'Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucks and get lost.' YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand .. Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo ? Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston ??? We are still talking of the same YOU. YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the same here in India?

In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan .. Will the Indian citizen do that here?' He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility. We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick a up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms. We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity. This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public.

When it comes to burning social issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse? 'It's the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my sons' rights to a dowry.' So who's going to change the system? What does a system consist of? Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbours, other households, other cities, other communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU. When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away. Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England . When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.
Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a great deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too…. I am echoing J. F. Kennedy's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians…..



'ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE INDIA WHAT AMERICA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE TODAY'
Lets do what India needs from us.

Mission Impossible - 2010

Though this going to be a repost, I believe it's worth it. It has been ages since I post here. all these days I have spent more time on reading rather than writing anything here. Due to my past experiences, I have not made any Newyear's resolutions because they never get accomplished. However, I would give a try to write a post atleast once in a month.

Start of 2010 has brought new hopes as like every new year. This is not just a new year but start of a new decade too. New plans, New efforts, fresh starts and everything with momentum and fresh energy.

However, 2010 starts with fearful attacks, still extending war between nations, global warming, elections, other dangerous issues and especially on top, the financial crisis (though it is said to be reaching its end). So what are your plans for 2010?... Yes yes I’m asking you friend.

Mm.. oh.. all right, you have some plans. But have you not thought these big problems stand in front us. You may wonder why should I?..

Are you?... hey friend, think why not? You may be wondering who am I to solve all these world problems? I’m simply no one, do not have any special powers.

Yes you are “The One” chosen by world to solve these problems just like “Neo” in Matrix. Believe in that. You can do it. This should be yours 2010's RESOLUTION (promise you make).







Yes you are no one. No one will know you(that's basically an advantage for you because media won't be spying on each step you make, so called intelligents wont criticise on whatever you do), but still you are gonna solve the problems of the world because you are the chosen One. If Hussain Bolt can make it in 9 seconds, If Barack Obama can make a change in powerful nation of the world, If Michael Phelps can win 8 gold medals at Olympic, if some one in the corner of the world can, why not you.

What you need is determination. Commitment and not giving up attitude will lead you save the world. You may be starting with small thing, a small change like just by reducing using the internet by that electricity or may be reducing (reusing) the polythene and progressing your efforts by asking your family and friends to make the change and soon inspiring all your mates and co workers to change for good.

Yes always think why not and now you are in a mission, A mission make you worth of living in the world. You are the chosen one to save world, the poor, the human, the nature and everything around you. Believe in that and start progressing. Hope to see a better world at the end of 2010 whether you and me are alive or not. It does not whether you win or loose, but it all matters at the end is how well you tried.

By the way, I did not forget about the new year. I wish you all peaceful New Year and may your hard efforts come true success. and I'll pray for you for your mission in this 2010. :)

Why I want to be Vegetarian.

Lots of people around the world love eating non-Veg. me too until someday in my younger days until some incident (kind of realization) happened. I could not remember exactly what it is, but some sort of realization about the other living beings.


Now I wish and like to have vegetable foods. First reason, Other living beings in the world are too born to live just like me. so why the hell should I kill them just for one time meal. Or what right do I have to kill them. They too have feelings. They too want to live on earth just like me. I really feel, it's cruel to kill them. Just watch the following videos. You will get what I mean...
