Happy and Diwali

October 16th, 2009

DeepavaliWondering myself why? Isn’t it Happy Diwali rather than ‘Happy and Diwali’. Tapping my heart I was confirmed that my instincts were right. I wish Happiness and Diwali for all the citizens across the globe.

While the festival symbolize the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, it is a true festival in every sense. Never I have been more happy in my life than I am now, which makes me to question myself, why? If life has any meaning other than breath, bread and body, I had the bliss of being a human being trying to make things ‘simple’. Nobles of past have shown us myriad paths to self-victory which are seldom put in action by us. Blessing everyone Happy Diwali will deny the wishes to be happy forward. My last article of Diwali reflected how I missed my homeland and its festivity, but mature since then, made me feel what true happiness really is. Without driving the darkness inside, celebration will be a myth and festivity shall only adore pale colors. Diwali is about us, it is about looking at the light and think of what greater are we than that lifeless lamp, which still shine bright to drive out darkness.

Vivekananda reiterated the fact that the source of all miseries is thinking about others. He did not mean that we be selfish. His emphasis of philosophy was to think that we are many but one and our actions often gives out its results taking the form of ‘others’. There is no greater thing that God and God is in all good things. I have been fortunate to have ‘Sat-Sang’ which forms the onus of becoming a complete human.

So I wish you once again my fellow beings that be happy and celebrate Diwali. Every light that you lit today shall only shine and every deed that you do from today shall only do good.

Ah! The Bliss..

I am proud that I share a commonality with this guy. We are both born as Indians and this could happen only in India. Its been long time since I have heard anything this outstanding. More than a protege this kid’s voice is golden and godly. Hemanth is a little champ performing on stage for ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champions’. Watch it for bliss.

Note: Catch the song at 7:09

Potpourri

October 15th, 2009

SorrowMy heart is with those who have lost their near & dear in Southern India’s floods. I am guilty of not extending any sort of help other than lambasting the officials supervising the relief efforts. Nevertheless good Samaritans from across India have done their citizen duties helping the victims and extending their faith to keep them going. I wish mother nature had little more sympathy on those poor people, which eventually she did, and bless them with crops and fruit.

Chinese aggression as I have mentioned in my twit reminds me Nehru’s description in one word, backstabbing. Powerdavid-and-goliath hungry dictators ruling that land will someday learn the lesson of aggression and more than anyone, history shall repeat again and teach them a message. A wise man shall accept a strong nut than a weak wise. Their identity as a modern nation very much in debts to Nehru’s protege and it seems to me that people who have forgotten their past never will have a future. I am waiting for the time to give the answer!

Terrorist brief siege at army headquarters in Pakistan was the most funniest news I read in recent times. Please forgive me as loss of life is loss of everything for some people. suicidalHowever, terrorists storming army headquarters to me was like terrorists attaching terrorists, which bound to happen one day. You can only wait for the snake to bite you when you milk it for a while. Pakistan’s state policy of ‘sponsored terrorism’ will one day eat itself. It’s like an AIDS patient threatening others that they’ll have sex with others unless they confine to their ideas. The patient will die one day, a MISERABLE DEATH.

Gas prices are on rise in US forecasting greater demand in travel. Someone really thinks that people are brainless dumb asses. gas_prices_largeNever in the history of this great country there was a demand for gas more than in summer. With unemployment closing in on two digits, people are trying to get to all corners to cut the costs. Some greedy bastards set the ‘future’ prices on a speculated demand, which is nothing short of what I call terrorism (inflicting greater pain on mass population without provoking and reason). The Government shall first have to tackle these financial terrorist before running after those whom I think deserves the least of the attention at this time.

Happy Birthday to Truth

October 2nd, 2009

MahatmaNo man with the same skin and soul will ever walk on this planet again like the ‘Mahatma’. A true inspiration, lived his life dedicated for peace and truth, he lives amongst every one of us whenever we think of our souls. Other than the GOD himself, I do not think that there is any other soul ever lived who is more simpler than this great ‘Atma’. Mahatma Gandhi has exemplified his deeds following the path of ‘ahimsa’ and personified the world with his thoughts and words.

He is the ‘father of the nation’ to the most vibrant of cultures in the history of mankind and he is the beloved ‘Bapu’ for many a billion. If simplicity is anything but truth, only Gandhi proved why he is the only ‘Mahatma’ to have born as a simple human and spirited us with the great gift of ‘Satya-Agrah’.

It takes for one an entire life, it takes one an entire culture and it takes for one an entire civilization to have achieved what Mahatma has done without sweat and without fear and with a smile that speaks only truth in his life. Very few in our history can cast a shadow as big as Mahatma, one where feels relieved from lies of life, misery and unhappiness.

Mahatma Gandhi has experimented with truth and finally prevailed like no other. He is no GOD but no less, as the GOD himself wonders how he creates such a soul on this planet.

The greatness of this man is his simplicity.

Happy Birthday to MAHATMA, the MAHAN ATMA.

Happy Birthday to me :)

This is the 10th draft probably making up for publishing. Wanted to share so much stuff but in the end, I thought to stay happy and just not try anything else. Lakshmi gave a wonderful and memorable start and I know she would end that with the same.

I wanted to wish myself a very Happy Birthday for not what I am but for what you all feel I am. Love or hatred, friendship or enemity, close or far, big or small, it doesn’t matter. The world around me enough colorful and lovable to cherish and think about everyone who were and in my life and I pray for them and the rest of the world to be only Happy.

Happy Birthday to Me 🙂

Patna – uninhibited

August 21st, 2009

While reading through the headlines today, I came across a news item wherein  a girl who was gang-raped by 3 people was chasing them on the road in broad day-light without caring for her for nudity. She was eager to catch those culprits before they could set off. No one, not even a single person tried to stop those culprits and they got away. One of them was eventually nabbed by the police, as they quote.

What is happening in Bihar, particularly in Patna. This is the second such incident which was witnessed by hundreds of by-passers and no one intervened or questioned the wrong-doing. I guess it is no more habituated by human beings. Either they all are animals, or hizdas or just consider themselves nomads.

In my view, those 3 should be tied to a pole and stoned till death. Their crime does not impose such a ruthless punishment but it is with such a pity that I am writing this that the entire society has molded itself around this crazy existence. Where are human beings, did they all die? Was there not a single person who could stop them from escaping, what a shame?

These people does not deserve Democracy, they need a Chandragupta accompanied by Chanakya. Cut their throats for doing such a heinous crime. Shame on that government, people (animals) and the land of the law.

Back to IMPERIALISM!

August 17th, 2009

SRK’s detention in Newark is not just unfortunate incident, it brings me back the Western imperialistic mind-frame to the forefront. He might not be a Gandhi that he situation requires such an uproar nor his ethnicity have to bear the brunt. For me its more Indian than any other paraphernalia.

Kalam was detained briefly in our own country and yet Continental was able to fly on our skies. The deplore was a mere rhetoric than action. It is a national shame than it hurts to be a Muslim. Call it ‘procedural’ or ‘routine’, these incidents strongly bear a stamp of imperialism. I pity such individuals who still live under that presumption of ‘domination’ as they go back to their toilets and forget that they clean their own buts every time.

This is not a over-cry or media exaggeration (of course they love to feed on this stuff), it is a mere protest against those individuals whose acts resonates imperialist behaviorism. No protest goes to the table these days unless there is economical impact, be it SRK, Kalam or Sudan. Had we banned Continental across the globe as ‘united Indian’ the protest would have been stronger and bring down those perverts to kneels, licking our buts.

Gandhi’s tool of Satyagraha has to be transformed into 21st century’s new norms. From Satya to Economics, the protest should be more of ‘Economicagraha’, hitting the bulls-eye at the center; making them cry, weep, kneel and ultimately surrender, again Imperialism Vs Imperialism, only this time its with a cause.

One song that always fills tears in my eyes and brings those glimpses of black and white pictures of freedom fighters ruthlessly beaten by atrocious British soldiers.

aye mere vatan ke logon
zara aankh mein bhar lo paani

jo shaheed hue hain unki
zara yaad karo qurbaani

Rendering her sweet voice mixed with the pain and agony of those great people who put their lives in the fore-front of freedom struggle, Lata Mangeshker is ever successful in bringing those memories to all of us, even today.

I was born 26 years after we were free and yet a strange thought of revived nationalism and patriotic sense muse our faces on every August 15th. I remember those golden school days where a weeks worth of preparations to celebrate our Independence Day were filled with enthusiasm, zeal and pride. Rainbow had only three colors and our class walls were filled with great leaders of the past. Indian maps were decorated with everything that we can think of. Sweet packets being packed the night before to be distributed the next day while the senior kids are in charge of making sure the confetti is sprinkled through the air when the national flag is unfurled.

When Vande Mataram was resurrected and resonated between the school walls and loud speakers else where nonchalantly sounding patriotic songs through the air. August being the best month with respect to climate in Hyderabad, had always been an icing on the cake. Bright orange Sun shredding luminous white light through fresh green trees remembered everyone of nationalism and the glory of tri-color.

Kids in all kinds of uniform was the norm till noon that day across every galli, every mohalla and every road. There was never a feeling of religion, cast, creed, status, race or color during the celebrations and every hand was only painted, Indian.

Those memories are rich treasures safely locked inside my heart and head and pop up on our Independence Day. One day I will be an American by law and being a ‘citizen’ I have to respect the law of the land and abide by its good and bad times. Nevertheless, no power on this earth shall take away my memories, the ‘nationalist’ childhood which I am privileged to have.

Nothing on this planet shall repay the debt that we have to our great leaders of the past, but..

my eyes are filled with glorified tears, thinking them, consoling,  being and Indian at heart, yesterday, today and tomorrow and ever.

Jo Shaheed huye hein unki, zara yaad karo qurbani…

Jai Hind and Happy Independence day to every one.

I was like.. a Decade late !

August 12th, 2009

We all went to Smoky last weekend cordially joined by my cousin and her family from Kentucky. Overall the trip was a nice experience. Kids had some good time and everyone specially enjoyed the cabin-stay.

With occasional ‘bear-sights’ the trip had its own memories, but the best one still remain crossing the little stream full of rocks on our way to Cedar Cove. Lakshmi and I were crossing this nature’s small beauty hand in had and it then stuck to me, wow! I am just a decade late in doing this thing.

It was far more than romantic to put ourselves knee deep in rushing cold water, smoothing the edges of rocks as they pass every second with a strange and melodious music when it hits the floor and a wonderful display of natural grays and whites. Be it small, but I will forever cherish this moment that I spent with Lakshmi for years to come and feel sorry for her that the hand she held was decade older.

Pig, Politics & More..

July 28th, 2009

Thanks to TV-9 free telecast (for time-being) in USA on Dish Network. Lately I have been watching bits and pieces of the 24/7 News channel and I am literally shocked to see of what is happening back in India.

  1. A pig was doing rounds in a temple and people have decided to build a temple for that creature as they think that it is ‘divine’ now. I guess we need to send all the stray animals in India into temples to make sure they are taken care of. No need for temples, just treat them humanely.
  2. A fake link was established between Jr.NTR’s party with an accident by someone and the Media had been feeding on this fodder for quite a while. The ethics of Media were so low that a Buffalo would be proud of eating ‘just grass’.
  3. Rosaiah had questioned Muddu Krishnama Naidu if he is a ‘real man’ in the Assembly. For heavens sake, there are more public issues to discuss than fighting over politician’s potency. Grow up you morons.
  4. Congress Party cadres in real-estate business are manipulating prices near Warangal on the pre-text that there will be an airport coming up soon. Its really amazing that they can build airports so quickly (Japan, you have a lesson to learn here) and people are such dumb fu**ing bastards that they allowed themselves to be lured. Do they eat airports or what? What is that bull-shit economical gain to live near a deaf-dumb polluting place like an airport.
  5. YSR and Babu were throwing tantrums at each other in Assembly, literally making the whole democratic process and the legislative procedures a big joke.
  6. A women in Bihar was assaulted in broad day-light in front of public by a bunch of goons while the Police were watching and capturing MMS on their mobiles. Long live Duryodhana and Dushaasana, you have your heirs.
  7. Acid in India is more available than pure drinking water. The number of acid attacks in India grew more than 3×10123456789% this year alone.
  8. Free water rides in Delhi. Heavy rains literally made Delhi submerged in water allowing all classes of life to have free water rides. You can swim, you can row, you can splash and you can wash.
  9. yatra nAryastu pUjyante ramante tatra devatAH. Read..

Jai Hind!
