Learn, but good things.

Before four years, one of my friend's batch mate got selected in a youth exchange programme. He was very happy as he was going to The United States of America for ONE year. When he returned after an year, he was totally changed – his way of talking, his style, he had started smoking, etc. Obviously, he fell pray to the country's very 'open' culture. He was unhappy when he came back, he wanted to go back. After completing his 12th standard, he again went to US. This time not through any exchange program, but with his own money (i.e his father's). He took admission in a reputed engineering college there.

Suddenly, after completing one year he came back. When friends asked him about the cause, he said that he had miserably failed in the first year (because he enjoyed too much and didn't study well). And this time he was addicted to drugs and smoking! His friends felt very sorry for him. Now he is in India again doing the same first year of engineering.

I know that youth exchange programmes are very good. We learn very good and new things from new people. But you should not include bad things from other peoples culture to your culture. America has open culture, but you cannot follow that same culture in your own country.

The Taliban Scare !

News related to terror attacks by Taliban are making to the front page of popular dailies. Recently Taliban attacked Pakistan several times. Looks like the Taliban is very enraged with the US aid to Pakistan. They have also warned to attack India in the near future.

India always says that Pakistan gives safe havens to terrorists. Now those safe havens are turning against Pakistan itself. In my opinion, Pakistan should allow peace keeping forces from other countries to evict those dreaded terrorists. India instead of blaming Pakistan, should help her along with US and other countries. No country wants terrorists attacks.

The Taliban terrorists say that they want to attack India to liberate the India Muslims and the Kashmiris. But I am confident, they cannot do this. The Muslim communinity in India consider themselves Indian and they respect India (*I'm confident about this*).

Lets hope that the Taliban will soon be destroyed !

Today I fell into hell.

He he.

I fell into the hell.

Being the day of Lakshmi Pujan, I was supposed to wake up at 4:00 AM and do my daily chores, but I woke up too late at 6:00 AM.

I'm not telling this, my parents are. Ya, according to my parents (or any old Hindu person), if you don't wake up and bath before the sun rises (on the day of Lakshmi Pujan i.e. Diwali), you are supposed to go to hell.

Oh God ! Don't throw me into Hell.

Ha Ha.

Diwali is a festival of lights, not sound.

With the day of lakshmi poojan nearing up, people are getting excited day by day. Shopping malls, streets, etc are flooded with people. Total rush in market places.

And when I saw a cracker shop, even more rush !

Coming to the title of the post,
People buy firecrackers which create huge noise (eg. Laxmi bomb, there are many types.).

What do you get when you explode those tiny bombs ?

Noise which makes you deaf, causes sound pollution, scares animals, litters the environment with pieces of paper, etc. (There are many more ill effecs that cannot be listed here)
Moreover, don't you loose your hard earned money in creating such irritating sounds and pollution.

Diwali is the festival of lights, so buy firecrackers which creates light and no (or very less) sound.

Keep going, you useless politicains !

The assembly election fever in Maharashtra is on high rise since a few days. With this, the politician has started the blame game. Now, some of them are talking nonsense.

Following are the recent headlines in several newspapers:
"Maharashtra CM Ashok Chavan calls MNS chief Raj Thakre a FROG"
"Raj retaliates by calling Mr. Chavan a BRAINLESS fellow"
"Shiv Sena spokesperson calls Raj a 'Supari-Man' of Congress"
There are many more.....
Absolutely Useless !
Instead of this, parties should concentrate on campaining which will benefit them.

We need a Change.

The congress has done many wrong things in the past. Inspite of that Indians always vote for congress.
Is there something wrong with the Indian mentality ?
Isn't there another alternative for the Congress Party ?

When my dada asked our maid about the party she votes for, the reply was Congress. When asked why, the reason was the party symbol "The Hand". Our hand does all the work, hence we vote for Congress.

The illiterate people are not going to change their mind. Only educated people like us can change. I am not asking you to vote for the BJP. The Congress has been in power for most of the time since Independence. Look at China, the country was formed in 1959 and it has gone so far compared to India's development.

YES, We need a change in government this time, atleast in the Maharashtra State assembly elections.

Rain Rain Come Again

After a breif lull the rainy season is back here in Nagpur. Every place is getting greener automatically (No need to curse the municipal corporation).
The mercury was also climbing high during the past few weeks and it was a sort of drought-like period. Now the situation is certainly getting better, farmers are also happy, people seem to be enjoying the rains.
The rains are lashing the city continuously since the last two days.

Its indeed really Joyful.

And the worst part, I got drenched yesterday. Now I am down with cold.
