Nagpur Police gone Mad!

Since a few weeks Nagpur police have started 'nakabandi' all round the city.

A Nagpurian has to face many difficulties when he drives. Firstly, the roads here aren't like a metropolis. Secondly, more than half of the population don't know how to drive according to the rules.

And thirdly, when you are driving merrily, enjoying your ride, you find barricades on the road and the policemen suddenly stop you. They ask you to show your driving license and all your vehicle papers and scrutinize every paper you give them. You are very polite with them, and they are very rude with you. After verifying every paper, they let you go. But if there is even a very small problem with the papers, they challan you or demand bribe.

So after doing all this, you proceed with your spoiled ride. After 2-3 kilometers again you find barricades and rude policemen on your way. Again the whole process continues. What the F.
They start this shit at 6' o clock in morning and continue till 10' o clock night.

Everybody curses the Nagpur police in our city. The police have gone mad.

Even though there is such strict checking or Nakabandi by the police, sensational thefts of vehicles, house breaking, etc. are rampant in the city.

Think carefully before comitting a crime, because...

..."God punishes those who are not properly punished by the court."

For example, Pravin Mahajan (you know him, right?)

{Poem}: Mother Earth.

God created the planet Earth.
Life was meant for this planet,
And here it took its birth.

The earth, being bestowed with life,
Was happy and joyed.
Then why is man cutting her with a knife?

We consider the Earth as our mother.
A mother who is nurturing us since long,
Then why are we preparing for her slaughter?

In spite of such trouble, our mother is calm.
But the time is not far,
When the angry mother will strand us in a filthy farm.

Is splitting states to smaller ones justified?

In my opinion, yes!

I personally feel that smaller states (not too small) ensures better governance. Telangana should be separated from Andhra Pradesh, Vidarbha should be separated from Maharashtra, etc. But care should be taken by the centre not to go on splitting states one by one.

I asked some of my friends for their opinion on separating Vidarbha from Maharashtra. Most of them supported separation. One of them said that if Vidarbha is separated, then we (at Nagpur) will loose developed cities like Mumbai, Thane, Pune, etc.

But do you know that from where resources (like electricity, cotton, etc.) are supplied to these so called developed cities?
Its from the underprivileged, undeveloped part of Maharashtra called Vidarbha.
Vidarbha is always ignored by the Maharashtra government. Nagpur is the geographical center of our country, it should have been a developed city far before. When the politicians come to Nagpur for the winter session, it seems that they have come for a holiday or a picnic.

My father has visited most cities in western Maharashtra (because of his job). He told that almost all farms in western Maharashtra are provided with well irrigation facilities. There are gas pipelines in Mumbai, Zero load-shedding in most of the cities in western Maharashtra. Whereas, in Vidarbha's farms lack basic irrigation facilities, electricity, etc. Also not a single city in Vidarbha is free of load-shedding. There are three power-plants in Vidarbha, and a huge amount is diverted to western Maharashtra to make them free of load-shedding.

The ambitious MIHAN project in Nagpur is also a victim of the State government's negligence.
The list of complaints is endless. The promises made by the ministers wither within weeks.

If Vidarbha region is discriminated by Maharashtra Government, then why not have a separate state with Nagpur as capital, and govern the new state better.

Why Cricket is so popular in India?

Indian's are crazy for cricket. So much crazy, that other sports are not even thought by them.

Why are people so crazy only for cricket?

Well, the Indian people are not responsible for that. The media is responsible. Only Cricket is aired live on the Doordarshan (DD 1). I've rarely seen other sport live on the Doordarshan. If you look at the sports section in the news paper, you'll find news and articles related to Cricket all over, and that too with bold headlines. News related to other sports are situated in the corners with tiny headlines which don't make any sense.

Yesterday, India lost the T20 cricket match against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. Also, India won a hockey match against China in a semifinal in Argentina. Remember that Hockey is our national game. In today's newspaper, a very big headline stated that India lost the match with colorful effects and big images. The news about the Hockey game that India won was situated in the bottom of the paper and with no colors and images.
I wonder, if the media likes to see India loose and put their news in their papers.

This is the respect, the Indian MEDIA shows to our national game.

The most dreadful thing, many people think that Cricket is our national game.

The media is responsible for many things, they can change anything. This is the only reason why India gets 5,6 gold medals in Olympics.

The newspaper article which affects...

My parents read a very interesting article published in the newspaper recently. The article stated that Internet can be very addictive. And that article influenced them to a great extent. Now, they are thinking that I am addicted to the net. They are also saying that I'm glued to the computer always (even when I sit for 2 hours, ONLY).

Oh God,
Please save me!...lol.

Happy Birthday Daddy

 Best Dad
Happy birthday to the best dad I know,
A father I love and respect,
A dad who fulfills all his duties
To teach, to guide, to protect.
If everyone had such a father,
A really good dad like mine,
The world would be so much better,
It would look like God’s own design.

Traffic Signal Program ver_2.0

A Windows version of my previous traffic signal program.

The program shows how traffic signals work.

Screen shot:

Whe do we (Indians) eat with our fingers?

Because eating with your fingers makes you aware of the temperature of the food.
Otherwise you will burn your tongue and lips!

And some very high class people think that this the uncivilized and unclean method to eat food.
Tell me, can you determine that the food is hot with the help of a spoon? And how will you cut the roti with the cutlery?

The best way to relish INDIAN food is to eat with your bare fingers. And yes, don't forget to wash your hands before dining.
