Bhopal Gas

Bhopal gas verdict raises very critical question of us as an Indian citizen; can we really trust the state that it can deliver time bound justice to its citizen. Why is it that after 60 years of independence we are still poor country, look at South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan; they were poorer than India in 1950's and now they are developed countries and we in India have still to get along with Chalta hai attitude of our Police, Judiciary. Why is it that as a citizen we fail to force our government to actually govern. Why can't we change the system of governance.....

Tata Nano, Singur and Left wing

A car project which would have revolutinised the industrial scene in West Bengal, was so vehmently opposed that it had to shift its whole production plant from to industrial friendly state of Gujarat. So question arises

a) why was there massive support against Tata Nano
b) Why were people not able to see the massive economic and employment opportunity from this project.
c) Why was media not able to gauge the people's opinion in Bengal.

Think !! ...... before you think...............

Thinking is just a tool, in whole repository of tools that we humans have.....
You use it judiciously and you achieve, you use it negatively, you ruin your life.
So think before you think.........
So the whole concept of ITTIAM i.e I think therefore i am, is wrong, the truth is, i am; therefore i think.......
There is always a discoonect between what we think and what we do....
Have you ever observed your thoughts; you are never in now.....when in now, you think of past or future.
But we live in now.
But somehow because of our thinking we do not enjoy now.
We make enemy out of now; right now you are living a life, and you are not enjoying it.
When in office you are at home, when at home, you are at beach and when at beach you think about meeting office deadlines..
You run, in thoughts, from office to home to beach.....defintely you will get exhausted by such running......
and thats a retarded way to think....
Now; use thought, in positive manner, it gives you sense or concept called future, where you can have an appointment with doctor or itieanary to catch plane.....
So thought is just like an axe, use it, to cut trees and not your legs....
Stop thinking and start living.....

Dogs

Another weekend.....
Well on 17th April 2010 Mohit is marrying Jodie, and its only a week left and i haven't bought his wedding present and neither have i prepared the best man's speech......( me and my wretched plans....never gets implemented).....

If auntyji or Rohit comes to know i am the best man,their faith on whole humanity would be lifted, i was supposed to look after and keep a watch on Mohit, and look at me!!!!!.....i am arranging for his marriage......but what can i do.....

The laughing matter about all this affair is that auntyji wanted only a brahmin and no other brahmin other than Sanadhya brahmin, god has his own ways....Mohit is marrying true blood aussie....

This thursday i.e is 8th April was the most productive day of the week.....
1) I got my vic roads address updated
2) Killed few viruses on my computer.
3) Downgraded my 3 mobile plan.....( i don't think i need i phone.....why should i pay 54$ for it)
4) bought weeks grocery + petrol
5) Also worked till 5.....

This saturday and sunday, i think i should prepare list of all the indian shops and sort it suburb wise......it has been 4 months now since i am expecting this toy consignment......and i still don't see it anywhere,

I think i have got addicted to ebay......my cash is flying out pretty fast.......need to curb my enthusiasm.......

On top of it; this question, has bothered me for last whole week..... does life have any meaning; If i look back,it seems meanigless, you sleep, work, eat, and eventually die.......out of billions of people; who were born before me, or, who will be born after me, on this planet, we humans, remember barely 100 odd souls........or let me paraphrase....do you know the name of any person who won Noble Prize last year!!!!..... probably, most of the people, will not know; by name, even a single person......and i think i am important......

Easter weekend

Things are moving pretty fast, Yogi is moving back to india from UK, thank god i never went to that wretched country, it would have been plain waste of time.

Like chinese philospher said " If you have not travelled the world, you have read only one page of 1000 page book".

Here after living in australia i have come to appreciate the universal human values which have nothing to with religion, culture or upbringing. By meeting people and getting to know them makes you understand that everyone is looking for good job, decent life, good food, security and liveable atmosphere. People as such are not racist, but just ignorant or have false sense of insecurity.

I have few Pakistani friends and as such they are fun to chat and go out and eat out with, but they have some crazy notions like; i was in my lunch break and this guy Sajad was happy that he had bought Honda civic car and was showing me around his car and we were discussing about cost of repairs and other misc. matters, i asked him how much are you paying for your insurance. He says nothing, because insurance is haram in Islam. But i asked him even if he meets with minor accident here in melbourne, the cost is going to be thousands of dollars, and he retorts that amitbhai, even if you cross the road you can die, there is no security in life as such.

I am amazed by such thinking, no wonder if well educated pakistanis have such view then country would sure go to dogs....

Anyways last 4 days of easter weekend has been uneventful, it was really beautiful to do nothing.....lol....but from tuesday i have to work till 5pm .....that makes me dread....
