26/11: The Unforgettable

A year before 10 fully armed terrorists attacked the financial capital of our country, mercilessly firing on innocent civilians killing more than 180 of them. I sadly watched the news on television as the security forces brought the dead bodies one by one from the attack sites. Fortunately, at least one terrorist was captured, who paved way for investigators. Every time I recall the footage I watched on the television, shivers run all over my body.

Mumbaikars are very brave; the city was restored as it is within a couple of days.

No one can forget those deadly events.

Recently, there were reports that India is one of the most terror affected countries. A few weeks ago, the army chief rightly said that USA has not allowed another 9/11, UK has not allowed another London attacks, but India has allowed many terror attacks on its soil. Our country is attacked by terrorists and naxalites quiet often. Now it’s the time to stop this menace, we cannot afford another terrorist attack.

Hats off to all those brave NGS commandoes and (some of) the police force who prevented the perpetrators from turning the event from worse to worst.
The police need to be fit and fully trained to counter these attacks. Our police officers just sit in the police station with big fat tummies and accept bribe. The navy should also be improved. Why our navy could not detect such an infiltration from sea route? Well, it remains unanswered.

Wake up UPA sarkar. Aren’t you worried about the AAM  ADMI’s security.

{Poem}: The C Programming Language

There is the C programming Language
Decades old, but still influencing the modern Age

A product of Dennis Ritchie's Wisdom
which made it to every computer System

Initially developed for the UniX
It became one of the best Six

Many languages were inspired by C
Thats why computers understand, think, and See.

2012: The end is not far

With the global warming on a high rise, the climate changing rapidly, the tsunamis, increasing levels of oceans, I can surely say that the 'apocalypse' is not very far away.
May not be in 2012, but very much in the future.

So, better prevent instead of facing the nature's wrath!

PS: 2012, the movie was good.

Happy Children's Day

I want to live in an India where children:
  • are free from malnutrition
  • get free schooling
  • are not abused
  • are never into labour
  • get all the love they need
  • are never beaten
Such was the dream of our first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

A very Happy CHILDREN'S DAY to all.

Nagpur Airshow

Yesterday, an air show was organised by the Indian Air Force (Maintenance Command) here in Nagpur. The Suryakiran aerobatic team performed magnificently. The same stunts of last year were performed this year also.
It was really awesome. The way the flew their planes at high speeds, the stunts, was thrilling. The atmosphere was filled with patriotism.

Computer Upgraded

My PC is running very fast!

Today I upgraded it with 1GB RAM, a new advanced motherboard (Intel), and a new Dual core CPU. It has almost become as good as new.

Raj Strikes Again

Heard the news...its the headline on almost all the newspapers.

"MLA Abu Azmi slapped and pushed by MNS MLA's for taking oath in Hindi in Maharashtra Assembly oath taking ceremony."

It happened for the first time in history, a maha shame for Maharashtra. Isn't that more than enough, they want everything in Marathi. Goonda culture is on rise ^

If you watch the video footage, you will find that it was Azmi's fault too, he provoked them. What if he took oath in Marathi?

Indira Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, APJ Abdul Kalam....are known for what they did and not for where they came from.

The True Legend.

The way Sachin Tendulkar batted yesterday evening was exceptionally well. Even at the age of 36 years, he played like a 25 year old. Congratulations Sachin, for your 45th century and becoming the first person to cross 17000 runs in ODIs. India should have won the match.

Runs - 175
Balls faced - 141
4s - 19
6s - 4

Poeple need to be educated for night driving.

At night, most of the people drive with the headlight in upper (beam) mode. This is a serious cause of concern. Recently one of my friends just escaped a major accident because of this. The very strong light of the vehicle coming from opposite direction blinded him for a few seconds.

Moreover, when we flash our upper (I mean your vehicle), there is no reaction from the other vehicle. Most people don't understand the traffic rules. You are supposed to switch the head light to dipper mode when the vehicle at the other side beams its light on you. There are other uses also.

I wonder why people want to see other vehicles and blind people instead of seeing the road.

Put the headlight in beaming mode only when you need it. Also, know the traffic instructions well.

YOU are not a human if:

* You pee in public places. (This is a common sight.)

* You jump a red traffic signal.

* You litter your city with garbage.

* You eat gutkha (of kharra, whatever it may be) and spit on the road (or anywhere else)

* You spit wherever you want.

* You accept bribe.

* You bribe someone. (Most of us do this)

* You tease girls on the road and follow them. (I've seen people doing this)

* You cheat a foreign tourists.

There are many more.

I wrote this post because I've been seeing all this since my childhood. Don't you want your country to be clean and posh. Someone has to take initiaitve to curb these 'inhuman' acts. Almost 99% of cycle riders jump the red traffic signal (even in front of a policeman). I don't care if people eat gutkha, but it feels very bad when such people spit in public.

A couple of months ago, I was in Bangalore. I was waiting at the railway station. I saw some foreign tourists putting unwanted stuff into the trash bin. And I also saw our 'indegenous' and literate students littering stuff in the railway station.
I felt very ashamed. "What would the foreighners think about our country?"

We need to change our attitude.
