GOOD BYE 2008!!!!!!


31st DECEMBER – the last day of unforgettable year, 2008.

Though numerous events had happened in this year, may be for rest of the world this year was supposed to be lucky, good and fortunate but for India, I don’t find this year of 2008 was lucky, good and fortunate in any sense. Rather, India was struggling in every month either by terrorist attack or by natural attack, and in both attack only common population of India had suffered.

What should I comment on our Government policies and the policy maker, definitely these policies embedded in papers for the benefit of the peoples, but the politics played or done by our fucking politicians spoiled everything and took it away from its original path.

Well I m not here to write anything about politicians and their dirty politics, I m writing this article for the last day of year 2008, and it should be good, because this article is going to be last article of mine for this year.

India’s three closest countries the US, Pakistan and Nepal have gone through with many bizarre and remarkable situations. As we all know, United States created a history by electing Barrack Hussein Obama, the first African-American as a president. The division in the American society along the racial line came into open. However, Obama emerged as a mouth-shutter of every racial bias.

While in Pakistan, most peculiar thing had happened, was the assassination of Pakistan’s great leader Benazir Bhutto and then another strange thing was overwhelming defeat of President Parvez Musharraf. The coalition, formed between Bhutto’s Pakistan people’s party and Nawaz sharif’s Pakistan Muslim league, elected Yousuf raza gilani as the prime minister of Pakistan.

In Nepal, the Maoist’s decision to come into electoral politics election for a constituent assembly was held and Prachanda was elected as Prime Minister.

I considered this year of 2008, the most deadly and blood soaked year for India in the means of terror. The first attack of 2008 was witnessed in Jaipur on May 13, where serial bomb blasts killed 80 people. This was followed by bomb explosions in Bangalore, Ahmedabad in July. Terror hit Delhi with six serial bomb blasts and took the lives of many. Gujarat, Assam, Manipur and Agartala were also hit by the bomb attacks. Mumbai witnessed the worst terrorist attack on November 26. This year observed the largest number of blast in the world History.

Living up to its expectation – the sorrow of Bihar – Kosi River flooded, affecting people in 14 districts in Bihar. The devastating flood was caused by a breach in the east Kosi embankment in Nepal, which resulted in the river changing its course. Nepal government inspected the flood hit area and held India responsible for the havoc. Whoever was responsible, but the consequences suffered by the people of Bihar only.

Raj Thakeray led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) tirades against the north Indians turned into physical attacks on the migrant community from Feb to till date, but after terrorist attack on 26 Nov., they are on a rest, thank God. These are the internal terrorist of our country.

The global economic slow down is far from over, and its causalities are the thousands of professionals who are being laid off by their companies globally. A top economist of the government said that job losses in India will continue in 2009.

India signed the most debated nuclear deal. India and the US finalized the civil nuclear pact and this will allow India access to nuclear reactors, fuel and technologies from the US.

The ambitious Nano project has been facing a hard time as land acquisition issues forced Tata group to pull out of West Bengal and shift the project to Gujarat. One of the worst examples of dirty politics in India, again Bengal is left with the problem of Unemployment.

The Mumbai anti terrorism squad invoked section 3 of the Maharashtra Control of organization Crime Act (MCOCA) against the suspects arrested in Malegaon case, including Sadhvi Pragnya Singh, a self styled religious leader, and a serving army officer, colonel Purohit. The incident not only raised fingers at the secular credential of the Army but also implicated right wing Hindu organization beyond the reasonable doubt.

All in vain, I find only two great achievements which India received till date in this year.

Firstly, it was a proud year for Indian sports whether it was in Olympics or through IPLs.

The year shooter Abhinav Bindra, gave India its first Individual Olympic gold mmedal by winning the 10m air rifle event at the Beijing Olympics, and adding two more bronze medal to India’s Olympic kitty by India’s Vijender Singh and Sushil Kumar in boxing and wrestling respectively.

In IPL, it created a storm among the cricket lovers in India; it was a brain child of BCCI vice president, Lalit Modi. Many Bollywood celebrities like ShahRukh Khan and Priety Zinta have co-owned a large applause by the public.

 The Second great achievement was the moon mission, Chandrayaan-1; India’s first unmanned lunar spacecraft was launched on Oct. 22, from Satish Dhawan Research Centre by the Indian Space research organization (ISRO). After the success of Chandrayaan-1 mission the ISRO is now planning to launch Chandrayaan-2 in 2015. Russia’s Federal Space Agency is joining with ISRO for development of Chandrayaan-2 mission.

That’s all for 2008 in my encyclopedia, there were lot of things and events took place in this year, but who concerned about it.

I hope, unlike this year of 2008, next year of 2009 will prove to be Lucky, Beneficial, Good, Fortunate, Cheerful, Pleasant, Profitable for India as well as for whole of the World.

Let’s join your hand and make a Wish and Resolution for the coming year of 21st century.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! To everybody………….

WHAT SHOULD I CALL…21ST CENTURY OR …………..???

In 2 days, we are going to enter into the New Year of 2009, the year of expectation, desire, hope, love and peace. One more year of 21st century passed away, and again the James Bond like number comes in our date line ‘...009’ (007), and the coming year is the last year for this series. Ahhh…..again we are in a 21st century,

“Wow…..21st century…we are living in a 21st century”,

“I m a 21st century guy”,

“These things are common in 21st century……..”

“ohhh! Common yaar you are living in a 21st century, and still……….”

These are some sentences quoted by our new generation, who thinks himself modern because it’s a 21st century. If you are not modern or don’t know the rules of this new, modern, advanced, fashionable, stylish 21st century then you must be from 18th century or 18th century guy.

There are some conditions, you have to fulfill the criteria of living in this 21st century world, otherwise people would say, “you old fashioned, 18th century, unusual, dumbo guy….”

Yeah it is truth, don’t amaze!!!

In this new world, you have to accept that pre-marital sex is good thing, and you have to approve it, and well! What’s the problem in it, “if you are ready and she is ready, then why the society is interfering, who the hell it is….” And who cares? ‘Whether it is against your moral or your religion’, ahhh….sorry in this new world, religion also doesn’t matter, it is just a fake belief which hold on some oldest temperament which has no use now, we are much and much advanced by it.

And the second thing is, ‘you have to be drunkard…ohhh sorry ….I mean, u should drink Alcohol, wine, brandy, etc…it is a means of enjoyment, you have to enjoy your every moment of life by drinking, smoking…..hmm…if you want more enjoyment, then u can choose drugs also, you will enjoy your life at the fullest, and then everybody would say, “see! He is the modern guy, a real 21st century guy” and the most interesting thing is if you are staying in some ‘Metropolitan or Cosmopolitan city’, then people would ask and amazed, if you are not enjoying your life like this. They give a lesson and reason to become a modern and about the enjoyment of life by wasting …I mean …by spending money on drinking and smoking.

‘LIVE-IN RELATIONSHIP’ a new phenomenon of new world, and it is proved to be very cheap, safe and best. It is safe because you don’t have to perform any obligations towards your partner unlike wife, the life partnerrr, and the best thing is you are away from the vicious circle of law i.e. maintenance, alimony etc…, it is cheap because it never cost you so much, both the partners are ready to pay their own bills unlike wife, the life partnerrr. It is best because it is cheap and safe….lol and who cares about the society… These things are the need of present world, oldies (old peoples) can never understand.

Well these are some examples I gave….for this modern and advanced society, I have a plenty more but all of them I can’t present.

Let’s see, how much changes and advancement, would take place in this new and auspicious NEW YEAR……and how much new and more interesting masala type contemporary issues it will give me to write like this for you peoples...……..lols…..

WHO SAYS “DOCTORS” ARE BENEFACTORS…..?

Sometimes the investigations conducted by the Newspaper journalist are proved to be very beneficial. That is what exactly happened few days before in Hyderabad.The investigation conducted by the Times of India group revealed that some city hospitals are often making unethical ‘compromise’ using medical equipment that as per Law should be disposed after single use.

CANNULAE or CANNULA are plastic tubes that come with a ‘single-use device’ label and are used to drain or inject fluid into a patient’s body. But these devices are being reused by some hospitals, and when asked, they gave a reason that patients may not be able to ‘afford’ new ones.

However, these cannulae are sterilized before ‘reuse’ so that no trace of bacteria remains in them. “After gas sterilization there is no chance of any infection passing on to the next patient…” a cardiac surgeon said.  Though some medical experts also agree that gas sterilization is a fool-proof method, it doesn’t wash away the chances of infection among patients.Open heart surgeries, plastic surgeries, liver transplant are some of the procedures where this practice of using used cannulae is rampant. The senior officer of city hospital said, “The cannulae used for these surgeries are very expensive. A single piece of cannula can cost of between Rs. 2,000 – Rs 3,000. So, the use of new cannulae escalates the cost of surgeries upto Rs. 50,000 and many patients may not be keen on spending so much”.The most interesting fact of this part is that, even the smaller surgeries are not spared from this unethical practice.

Even a slight mistake on their part could cost the patient dearly. Moreover, if a patient is shelling out Rs. 1 lakh for a surgery, would he mind spending Rs 50,000 ore if he is told it is for his safety? Peoples never compromise on their treatment, that’s why they come to the hospital in the hope for better facility.

The ‘reuse’ practice can lead to serious infections such as HIV, and sources in the health care sector note that other curable infections do occur among patients. It can be treated with antibiotics but this could lead to a longer stay of the patient in hospital and fat medical bills. I think, this is main reason that why the hospitals are using the same cannulae for the patients in order to get more medical bills in the name of medicines and admittance.

Since CANNULAE are inserted into the vien or artery of the patient for the direction of intravenous fluids and medicines, or into the nose for the delivery of oxygen, the reuse of such devices is declared ILLEGAL as per THE DRUGS AND COSMETICS ACT OF 1940. This was done after these devices were put in the category of ‘DRUGS’ in 2006.

Health activists feel that patients opting for a surgery should at least be made aware of the two kinds of cannulae (new and sterilized) and allowed to choose for themselves.

But what do the law enforcers have to say? Officials of the Drug control authority admit that such violations are taking place in hospitals.It is punishable act and can lead to minimum one year imprisonment of the erring doctor, provided it is reported.

However, who can monitor what is happening inside the operation theatre? Even if the Doctors are reusing a cannula on the patients, who will bring them to book………?

LEAVING HYDERABD ...........

When i first came in this city, i was feeling very badd....i was unable to adjust here, i felt and missing the feeling of belongingness in the city as i was thinking that, "I am alone in this city, nobody knows me here, little bit depressed because of my past", but slowly and slowly, this city owns me and I own the culture and happiness of this city.
I came here for the internship, I came here to learn something for my future. Here, I learned many things, I met with different peoples with different attitude towards life. I gained a knowledge as well as made many friends for my lifetime.
I heard a lot about many beautiful places in Hyderabad, but unfortunately i m not able to see any of them, may be beacause of busy schedule or u can say I m afraid of roaming some of the places due to some unusual reasons.
Today is my last day in Hyderabad, ahhh....I m feeling really baddd, I don't want to leave this place, I don't know when I will come again in this City of Dreams. Tomorrow morning I have a train at 6:30 AM and but I can feel the distance of this city from now only.

"Even if the tears come to an end,
And the life is all whole spend;
I will wait for you till the winter falls,
And again try to catch your glimpse with my calls............"

HYDERABAD......

Well now finally i m strolling around in Hyderabad, from many days i was just busy in travelling but now my journey ends in Hyderabad only.
I am having some kind of KARMIC CONNECTION with this city, which leads me to remember my sadful past in my mind, heart, lungs, stomach....everywhere.
when i just stepped on the platform of Hyd station, very strange, painful, lonliness feeling, which ultimately took me to recall my past days. Ahhh....that was my most beautiful days i ever been in my life but it ends up with very tragic and dreadful end. As everybody says, "Time is a great healer", so it healed up all my worries and somehow i overcome with all my abhorrent life.
Yesterday was a Eid and first time in my life i celebrated it lonely far away from my family,i had just performed my namaz and then go back to my workplace,that was all my Eid, i was little bit tensed, depressed and missed my family very much.
In life we have to face a new situation everytime, so i just become used to of it.
I hope, i will go back soon to my mom and dad, after completing my work and InshAllah i will come back with my new experiences with this city, till then take care you all of my friends.

STRENOUS JOURNEY ..........

I have been continuously traveling from many days for some usual and unusual reasons and in the meanwhile, my life has gone through many new experiences. In last four days, I had crossed approx. 2000 kms and been in places Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, Noida, Roorkee, Haridwar and then again backed off to Delhi for some work. Ahhh…it was quite hectic and shaggy schedule for me. I am not sure, but may be I have to pack off for Hyderabad also after two days. My backache problem is on a high and continuously complaining and giving me a sneering smile day by day.
It was an adventurous journey for me and I enjoyed each and every moment of it, specially my undergone experience with the spice jet, this was the first time when I was traveled by the plane. First time experience is always special, fabulous, wonderful and more exciting. The feeling of in air is amazing, firstly I was little bit scared, as it was a higher risk subject for me ha-ha-ha…but it last as soon as the plane took off from the ground and acquired its normal position (in the air), it seemed that it was moving with the zero speed and looking stationary with the cloud, actually it was all the game of frame of reference.
The clouds were looking so beautiful from there, I could imagine the scenery of Antarctica, and I couldn’t find any difference b/w the structure of clouds and up roaring ice in Antarctica. The fog covered runway was looking like a never ending lane which has it ends in infinity only. The surrounding atmosphere and weather was looking so pleasant and mischievous in the morning, which made my journey more happening and excited.
In this descriptive journey, I forget to tell my short time fun with the Air hostess, she came to me, wearing a dress like tutu and instructed me tutelage about security programmes. Her name was Manjeet, she was Punjabi but looking not less than an European. I asked her several questions about the mysterious role of make up in her field (ha-ha...) and she gave me some of logical and funny answers that I will not tell you coz it is little bit vulgar.
The tempting journey was jubilant, remarkable and successful, but one thing in vain was internet facility, I missed all of my friends, I was unable to come online because of my busy days, may be some of them are angry with me and worst thing was that I did not have much balance in my cell, so I was not able to contact anybody nor I picked up anybody’s call due to roaming charges.
Well I am already very much tired, so I don’t want to think and show my vehemence over other things except my warm and comfortable blanket which will take good care of my peaceful sleep and my loving dreams.

BOMB BAY.....

Once again Mumbai is playing with its destiny and this time in a very unimaginable way.
What had happened and has been continuously going on from two days is beyond the limit of common man’s perception. The atrocity of terrorist became a cynosure of everybody’s eyes; their reprobative act is frequently accruing through the secret conspiracy to open arms.
It seems that the world lay down on the leniency of these raucous terrorist.
On Wednesday, Mumbai was drenched with bloodbath; the terrorists attacked the major metropolis area of the city with multiple blasts and open gunfire on the innocent public.
They targeted on their gunfire the crowded chatrapati Shivaji terminus railways station and the two five start hotels – the Oberoi and the Taj, leaving the death of more than 110 peoples and more than 230 peoples were injured.
The planned work of terrorist had left behind the impromptu police and caused the death of three brave and courageous police officers, (anti terrorist squad chief ‘Hemant Karkare’, Additional commissioner of police ‘Ashok Kamle’ and Encounter specialist ‘Vijay Salaskar’)
Mumbai could have never faced this type of filmy and deadlier situation, even the top 5 star hotels of the country is not safe, so we could not even expect the security of others also.
The blitz situation of the country again created the question on the Government, “how the Government will tackle this menace?” The dawdling way of the Government to handle the situation is really shameful and unpardonable. The system of high alert is on high for some days, and then again it will come down with the time.
The police should always take their responsibility seriously and give a strong set back to the planning of the terrorist. It is not only the duty of the Government and the police person, but also every citizen’s responsibility and sensibility towards the security of our country. We, the common people should co-operate with the work of policemen and not always blame the police officers only, because they too are the victims of these terrorist attacks the exigency of everybody’s help is necessary to delve with the problem of attack and safety of citizens.
Let’s joined the hands and pray for the peaceful existence of the souls of those peoples, who died in the attack.

RIGHT TO MAINTENANCE continue......

The second ruling of the Supreme Court enthralled the married men with more difficulty. The Supreme Court tempting judgment is giving a very expensive meaning to the word ‘Maintenance’. Like the first time, this time also, the SC has added another rights in the bags of wives and added ‘the Rights for Medical Expenses’ in the Right of Maintenance Act 1956.
These two rulings, within a week, will surely make men to think twice before seeking separation from wives, especially after the SC had made registration of marriages mandatory under ‘the Special Marriage Act, 1954’ for all couples irrespective of the religion.
In this ruling, the Supreme Court expanded the meaning of the two terms ‘maintenance’ and ‘support’ with better interpretation and included the medical expenses, a little sum of Rs. 2 lakhs. Now, the non-uxorious and tyrant husbands definitely feel creepy and incongruous, and wives feel like a horse rider, in which all the holds and balance of the horse, is in the hands of riders only.
I hope these Rights will be used for the better purpose and will change the view of the society on the whole.

RIGHT TO MAINTENANCE... OR... RIGHT TO DIFFICULTY....?

Now it is very difficult for man to maintain himself because all the maintenance is taken into consideration for wife only.
Supreme Court ruling will prove costly for the husbands paying monthly maintenance to estranged wives. Till now, maintenance means to take care of food, clothing and other needs of estranged wives, but now maintenance should, include provision for housing allowances also.
Not only this, if a woman was living with the husband in a posh locality, then after estrangement, the husband is bound to give a sum along with maintenance that would enable her to rent a house in a same locality.
After seeing all these rulings and other things into consideration, I end up with the conclusion that marriage is really a big conundrum, ha-ha-ha, it is like a laddoo, if you want to eat it, then you should have a ability to digest it, otherwise it will be a great problem for you, it will became a constipation for your whole life. These days, this problem is really very common, so guys be careful while marrying with any girl, because all the girls wants to give this constipation problem for our small, innocent, free, and happy life.

EARTH IS OUR CITADEL, ...MOON IS A DREAM....


“I am greatly proud of Indian scientist. The technological excellence and creative leadership at ISRO have combined to make chandrayaan very successful. The whole country should be proud of ISRO…”
- A.P.J.Abdul kalam

We, the Indians became fourth entity in the world to join the global moon club. The Indian tricolor landed on the surface of the moon on Friday opening a new chapter in the history of India. The other countries which have their flags on the moon are the Soviet Union, the US and the European space agency and now it’s our own India.
After few years, the supremacy of the countries will be judge by the touchstone of a moon, whichever country has maximum flags flagged on the peaceful land of moon will be consider as supreme and intelligent. Engineers of that country will have a benefit of ‘Moon landed country certificate’, so that they will acquire job first than others in the queue.
The silver glittering and sparkling of a moon will become colored due to different colors of a flag present there. Thank God, we will be able to change the color of a moon and after all we are getting bored to see the same silver color of a moon from many years. It will be a great achievement of a mankind.

The classic poem of a childhood,
“Chandamama door ke, pue pakaaye dudh ke,
Aap khaaye thaali mien, munne ko khilaaye pyali mien,
Pyaali gayi toot, munna gaya ruth.”
Now it has to be change, because our ‘Chandamama’ is not ‘door’ from us, and our ‘Munna’ will never be ‘ruth’. Now the time has come for our ‘Chandamama’ to get angry (ruth), we are stealing his lavish splendour and suckling its luster from him.
The sui-generis quality of the moon will not remain same in coming years, if we don’t stop our experimental activities with him and leave him Scot free.

I agree that discovery, experiment, test, and science development are good things, but in which field. There are plenty of things left to be discovered in the world, then why we are wasting our time and money in these things. What about AIDS, Cancer, Radioactive and Nuclear power pollution problems, CFC pollution, Ozone depletion, Deforestation, Floods, Famines etc…? Is there any solution for these problems? Every country wants to be in a league of Nuclear power, but don’t want to concentrate upon these problems.
If we think that we have done a lot for these problems and we are having a solution of each and every problem of this world, and we have enough resources and finance to delve with these conundrums. Then, Moon mission is a great victory for us.
Lets cheers for ‘the Mission of Moon’ and off course for the ISRO, which made it possible.

A DREAMY JOURNEY.....

It is quite troublesome to travel, when you don’t have a confirmed seat in the train. That is, what happened with me, while I was going back to Pune from Delhi. It was an ordeal experience for me, especially in night, when the winds of slumber were passing through my eyes with its state of discontentment and every time emasculated me by its reckoning nature.
I was standing outside the AC compartment with my shivering body along with the company of cold darkness prevailing by the night. The sound of railway track echoed in my mind, forcing me to think endless things. I felt the silence of other’s sleep with my hazy dream.
‘every person has a dream in their life, some try to work hard to achieve it, while some wait for the time to achieve it, but very few of them knows, what exactly their dream is. Everyone has a two personality in them, one which they are having and other which they want to become. Dreams are like a race between a man and his destiny, sometime he is able to cross it, but finds a falsity of falsehood, and sometimes this destiny lead towards the end of everything i.e. the death of everything.’
I saw the light traveling from a long distance reflected in my eyes, and diverted my dreamy mind with its glittering shine. Again, the cold breeze gilted over me and made me uncomfortable, somehow I haggled the deteriorating situation and decided to go inside the compartment. The drench of slumber made me so unconscious that I found my self sleeping over my luggage in the morning. A voice came from outside ‘chai-chai’ and the journey went on………

LIFE......

My bewildered past, which I have been through it is very difficult to say, what will happen in future. I m trying to introspect myself, but then also I find no conclusion. All that I can say, Life is unpredictable, stranger, adventurous, veracious, and absurd, and always advance with time. I have been through many crest and trough, but with the progress of time, I became more sage and tough.

I met with many peoples in my life, but very few of them I like. I feel the importance of everyone in my life and orchestrated their good things in my mind. I feel life is like an extempore, which we can’t ignore. I feel the exhilaration of my life, with someone’s exhalation in this life.

The haziness of this world forces me to wear a veil with different countenance for different situation. The experience of my life with this world, I made myself schizophrenic, I have a different attitude with different attribute of people. I learned how to react in different situation with different people.

After all things happened with me, I came to the end that here whatever I have, all things are fake and guise. We are the puppets of ourselves, and thread is in the hands of Nature. We writes our destiny, with the pen whose Ink is filled by Nature.

SECTION 49-O - A POWER TO CHANGE A SYSTEM.....

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section " 49-O" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn't want to vote anyone!

Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these   leaders have never disclosed it. This is called "49-O".

Why should you go and say " I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received "49-O" votes more than 123, then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them. 

This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way; of our whole political system.... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public....

Show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don't miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O)....

Use your voting right for a better INDIA

OBAMA-NIA - RACE ENDS..........


“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still question the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer”

-         Barack Obama

 

 The long race between an Old White Horse and a Young Black Rabbit came to an end, and Black Rabbit emerged out as a ‘Knight Rider’.

Americans turned out their history, a new era has begun and ‘the White House’ has acquired by America’s first black President ‘Barack Hussien Obama’. The next four years of America’s future is in the hands of Obama, we hope that the hands of Obama will beneficiary and sign of good fortune, not only for America but for the World.

Obama’s victory is made sweeter by the fact that for the first time since 1995, when Bill Clinton was in office, Democrate will control both the Houses and the Senate, giving them a complete control over the government. Obama’s presidency create a land of hope and opportunity, an open society that welcomes migrants and where merit and talent matter for much than ethnic background & kinship ties.

The dream of Martin Luther King, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation, where they will not be judged by the color of the skin but by the content of their character….I have a dream that one day….right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sister and brother…”.  I hope his dream comes true now.

Now I can say. Americans are really changed and they are having a largest Democracy in the world. They have an ability to change their history and power to convert their dreams into a reality. 

The responsibility of prosecuting two wars, protecting the nation from Terrorist threat and stitching back together a shredded Economy, is now on the shoulders of Obama. We just hope for the better administration.

The world’s eyes are concentrated on the Work, Effort, Desire, Dream, Peaceful Operations and Decisions of our new Brand Black Barack Hussien Obama – a president of change….

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - FLOWN WITH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTON......

In two days, the most awaited results of the US presidential elections will come across over the world. This is the presidency of the United States of America, the most important and most powerful job in the world. America elects its 44th president.

Six months ago, it would have been hard to believe America could have a black president in our lifetime; it’s still a little difficult to accept that Obama captured the popular imagination and expresses the hopes of ten of millions of ordinary Americans.

Clearly color is not an issue for many Americans and who knows, they could be in majority on Tuesday. Now, this is the time to judge Americans, how they have changed themselves from past?

If we refer a history, then it is quite difficult for Obama, the inferences will definitely works for McCain. In America, the most famous political phenomenon called Bradley effect is became very relevant in the age of Obama. When Bradley (black mayor of LA) ran for Governor of California in 1982, he consistently led by healthy margins in the polls, until the actual results saw him defeated by Republican. So on the basis of this, you can’t trust the polls when they are about a BLACK candidate because Americans are admitted the truth of their own racial biases and unknown about their true voting intention. Apart from this, don’t forget that, Americans presidential elections are not decided by popular vote totals, but by a majority in the Electoral College, a body consisting of members of the House of Representatives and the senate. Al-gore lost the 2000 elections in the Electoral College despite winning a larger number of popular votes nationwide.

Barack Obama, an outsider in this country, once came across the victim of racial bias in the country, but who knows, that this Black race guy would acquire the most honorable and highest place in this country. Now, if he wins the election, then I can say that America is the greatest Democracy in the world. After all immigrants or outsider have made it to the top in other countries as well, New Zealand has an Indian Governor General, Singapore has an Indian President, and Canada has had Indian state premises and federal minister.

The risk is that, he may not be able to win over the older white traditionalists, who are still uneasy with the idea of a Black man occupying what will still be called ‘the white house’

All of these considerations can reverse the situation and make it an unexpected event of the elections. But if there is no last minute attack of surprise, I am betting on ‘OBAMA’. He has done everything right in his campaign and came out as calm, intelligent and presidential, whereas McCain has been erratic, impulsive and (in his choice of the woefully undercooked ‘Sarah palin’) makes him irresponsible too.

If Obama were white, then this would not even be a close contest. If he losses despite running the most impressive Presidential campaign in the Democratic history, it will only mean that the candidate of change has been defeating by the one thing he cannot change “the color of his SKIN”

Assam tarred by bloody bomb blast ..........

Dreadful blast covers the face of Assam, once again India is struggling for PEACE, we are helpless again. There is no sign of relief from these blasts, every time blast occurred we just hope that may be its a end of this dangerous circle, but it is happening again and again. 
Many solitary voices come from the anguish faces of the people, crawling from ghastly situation in Assam, but we are weak, we too are the victim of ourself. 
May be this time we are safe, what about next time...??? 
Now again, Police will take thousands of peoples for interrogation and on the basis of suspicion, they will do fake encounters and solve the mystery of this case in two or three days, and again blast occurs and the series goes on and on....
In the fight between Government's Politics and these terrorist's revenge, the only innocent person suffers. But who cares......, Minister's cares for thier fucking seat and these Terrorist (cowards, butchers, bloody peoples.....) cares for thier dirty game.

Newton's Third law is proving right in every field, "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction..."

Government sactioned or allowed actions done by thier disgust politicians, and in return, we, the common people, suffers the reactions done by these Terrorist.
I just hope that this never ending race has its end also. 
I pray for the better future of this country.........

Mumbai ka Raj........!!!!!

Mumbai is famous for its beautiful phrase, “Mumbai meri jaan”, but Alas! This only Mumbai has taken away ‘jaan’ of many peoples in the period of one year and the good thing is, the runner up of Mumbai doesn’t have any regret for all this.

The aggressiveness of MNS people or Marathi manoos over UP Bhaiyas and Bihari Babu are taking a turn of political agenda. The recruitment programmes in railway for Bihar people makes the situation worse and cause these jealous MNS workers more tyrant towards Biharis. Once again, Raj on a rampage is became a news, but this time, Raj finds him in trouble and this led him straight towards the way of lock up.

Media as usual, in his avatar, dished out every minute detail about Raj’s short stay as a ‘mehmaan’ of the manpada police station. We were told about the bare room, the dark conditions, and the change of clothes….even how traumatic it must have been for Raj to slide out of his comfy Mercedes and into a shaggy police van, when he was picked up. Newspaper and Valuable hours on TV were devoted to this meaningless information. By these Ad-nauseum created by our most helpful Media, Raj became an omnipotent demi-God for the ‘being tyrant MNS people’. Even the bollywood King, Shahrukh khan could also not able to arranged a greater Media coup. A few hours of sitting it out in a lock up generated more national and international publicity for a man who was virtually unknown less than a year ago.

With the help of Media, Raj is riding on a way, in whichever he intended to. He has done his job, he wanted to create MNS party into a political party and he has able to achieve it.

For a person like Raj thakeray, consequences doesn’t matter, he created a big rift between Mumbaikars and Biharis to attain his goal and his position in Maharashtra politics.

Raj through his long and close association with his uncle learnt everything that how to control Mumbai through muscle power, how to hold it to ransom, how to weak the psychological nerves of Mumbaikars and make them against anybody.

In a coming election, Raj definitely wants his seat to come with some political power in his hands or by coalition Dharma. Raj has a political objective to score. But, what about moral one? I wonder where our outspoken intellectuals have disappeared. Why they are silent?

The city of Mumbai is bult from the labour of millions of individuals each searching for their own dream and trying to make it real. Unfortunately, Raj will not be able to flourish his B grade ‘goondagiri’ with all of us, coz Raj’s tryst with destiny (and Indian jails!) may just have begun. So speak up Mumbaikars! Let’s show them that you are also from  “MAHA – RASHTRA”

Rioter's Right To Pay.....

Riots! Riots! Everywhere, if not between Hindu and Muslim, then between North and South, make the government financially out............

After many days of struggle, our Government is able to make an alternative or a permanent solution of economic loss during the inhuman riots problem in India. At last, our mindful Ministers are having an idea on their mind, to take a strict step on this issue.

 24th October, Friday seemed to be very lucky day for all peaceful and law-abiding citizens, but very SAD day for these BAD, MAD rioters who always do riots for their benefits. Now onwards, if they will do, they will do for Government’s benefit.

 Maharashtra Government signed the ordinance, seeking recovery of money from individuals as well as political, social, religious, educational and non-governmental organizations whose supporter goes on riots.

In the Bombay Police Act 1951, “there was only a provision to punish these rioters, but now the amendment take place and anybody caught damaging the private as well as public property will have to pay for it.”

 Now, the state of Maharashtra became the first state to have such a LAW. Prior to it, Maharashtra state was on the top, where the different type of violence occurred on the name of different groups, but from onwards, it is great sigh of relief for the citizen of Maharashtra.

MNS members, who were booked by the Police for rioting in the past, are quite lucky to be booked earlier than this Law has its effect and very fortunate also because, the law will not be implemented with ‘retrospective effect’.

 I think, country needs these types of BONAFIDE LAWS for their other peaceful citizens.

Other states also should take inspiration from the Government of Maharashtra or our central government should amend and add this law in our INDIAN CONSTITUTION.

I hope, this law will give a great relief to a large number of people and spread its magic as soon as possible.

EXAMINATION FEVER.....

Exams! Exams! Exams!....
very dangerous word i have ever known...not for me only but for everybody.
I am not so good in studies from my childhood, so it is normal for me to scare from the word EXAMS, its really a very scary word.
I think every children don't like this word, majority of students are like me (lucky), but those who likes exams, unfortunately i have to say,"they are abnormal person on this earth" (ha-ha..).

These days also i m suffering from some ailment, which i called "Examination fever", but the only medicine for this fever is to do hard word (which i m not doing well..) and getting pass the exam as soon as possible.
Doctors (Teachers) of this fever are very cruel, they always want us to give this fever....hope when we will become a teacher, we will not create such a big disaster ailment for our sweet, little, innocent children.

So, this is the problem, thats why i m not able to write articles as fast as i did, but inshallah i will after fighting this ailment (ha-ha...)
bye n take care friends

ROCK ON ....Roxxx....!!!!!!!!!


After so many days, at last I have seen the movie ROCK ON last night, it was a long delay since I have written one article on it, but then also I was not sure, when I will get a time, but yesterday it was possible and I saw it. I was very much fond of this movie, coz it seemed to be the biggest hit of this year and it has made and acted by my favourite director and now the actor ‘Farhan Akhtar’. Don’t think that I m also having a same name that’s why he became my favourite, actually he has a capability to do something good (hope I will also...), so he became my favourite.

Well guys, movie was totally different, what should I call ‘fantastic movie’, but the Film is for the youngsters (basically young generation type...), so may be aged person don’t like its theme (don’t go with your parents, otherwise they will not go with you again...hehehe), but I have a say for them, see the theme and idea of the movie, you will definitely like the direction and cinematography.
Farhan Akhtar, there is no word for him; I became wordless coz he has done a fabulous job. Apart from him, Arjun rampal had chosen a very typical role, it seems role was made perfectly for him or he has moulded himself in the mood of Joe (his name in movie). Purab Kohli, very natural actor, dances very well when he is in his full mood, I have noted him in the film many times his rock stars nature. Luke Kenny, debutant actor, looking very sweet in the movie. Every guy in the movie has played an important role for the success of the movie, choreography and songs of the movie is pretty good and commendable.

We need these types of different movie in our Bollywood with some good direction and songs, hope in future, may some directors and producer will make some interesting movies like this.

Enjoy reading,

EID - THE FESTIVAL OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS.....

From many days, I have been in my village with my uncle, aunt, cousins and other relatives and zealously waiting to celebrate Eid with great happiness and collectiveness. May be, tomorrow will be the Eid (depending upon the situation of moon), on one side it is quite natural that I m very excited and happy coz tomorrow will be the Eid, but on the other i m little bit sad coz Ramdaan month is going to end for this year and I have to wait one more year to seek its blessing.

The month of Ramdaan is very special for all the Muslims, in this month the holy book ‘Quran’ has gifted to this world by our creator and sustainer, the most gracious ‘Allah sweet’. It is a blessing month and we all are very fortunate to have this month in every year in our life. Every Muslims enjoys 30 days of this month by fasting and indulge in prayers. ‘Tarav’h’, a special prayer (namaz) in which the whole Quran is recited by the ‘Imam’, has performed in the month of Ramdaan(yesterday was the last one). After the whole month, the festival of Eid is celebrated by the Muslims, in order to mark the honour of the month Ramdaan.

So, this is the importance and significance of the month ‘Ramdaan’. Inshallah, tomorrow i will celebrate the celebration of Eid, the most awaited festival of the month.
Eid Mubarak to All of you...

Back to home....

Tomorrow, Inshallah I will be leaving for my most beautiful place ….MY HOME.
From then, when I reserved my seat in train, I am eagerly waiting for this day and now the date is arrived.
Some things in life will never change…like the home sickness, I am staying away from home since 3 years, but then also …whenever I go back to home, I feel very excited and happy.
I left my clothes unwashed from many days in the hope that it will wash by my servant when I will arrive home (heheh…little bit lazy person I am)
The feeling of relaxation of being in home is much greater than any relaxation in the world.
This time, I feel more fortunate because I m going to celebrate Eid with my family, which comes once in a year. In the eve of this festival, I will be with my whole family and my all relatives, so the day will be more fun and playful for me.
I hope I will enjoy my exciting holiday with my Family.

Friends, may be I will not be able to write articles as soon as I am writing now, but Inshallah after it, I will come with my pending ones…have a blast in this Blog again ….till then take care u all ……

BOLLYWOOD KA KING KAUN.....?

I promised you to write one more article on Bollywood, there are many things which I have to show, so this is my second article on it, showing the dark side of Bollywood.

Bollywood is the only field (in my view) in which there are breaking news (in every hour) for the followers of it, so whether it is Aaj tak or Zee news, everybody wants to show the news first. Everyday a new star is born and thousand of stars are present struggling to become Shahrukh khan and Amitabh bachchan but (unfortunately), very few are able to make it.
Bollywood, as soon as, the name flashes, we start to think of Glamour, Fashion, style, Fame, celebrities, films, starts etc. but nobody thinks about the politics which has become the part and parcel of Bollywood. (May be you are thinking, politics is the word which present everywhere, in every aspect of life, but who cares for them.)
The feeling of insecurity and fear of loosing the present status leads them (stars) to fight or you can say bitterness among them. It is like a cold war, even when they are shooting with each other, there’s continuously present a tension between them, which leads them apart.
These types of bitterness among the Bollywood actors and actress were very rare in old days, like Raj kapoor and Dilip kumar managed to maintain their friendship in spite of fierce competition, Rajendra kumar and Raj kumar also maintained it with a certain dignity, for a while, there was some bitterness when Rajesh khanna and Amitabh bachchan were competitors but they managed to resolve it.
But today, the things have changed; now Bollywood is having a different face, the money and competition have acquired a big place, everybody wants to charge more money than other actors, in order to become supreme. Competition and money is the driving force that keeps on to pull down other’s leg to sustain him in this environment.
The three Khans (Srk, Sallu, Amir), who are said to be the biggest celebrity in the film industry, but then also, there has always been a constant fear and insecurity among them, which recent fight leads them apart. Amitabh bachchan (shahenshah of Bollywood), after attaining 65 yrs of his age, then also he is comparing him with young actors (Thank god, not with actress…ha-ha). Akshay kumar, is the new khiladi who joined this league and started passing nasty and unusual comments on Shahrukh khan regarding King of Bollywood.
Yeah, I forget, there is also another race for the title of KING, Shahrukh khan is known as the ‘King of Bollywood’ or ‘King Khan’, but Salman khan, in his fight with Shahrukh, said, “I m the real King khan, you are not”, and Akshay kumar after making his film, ‘Singh is king’, is also thinking himself as a ‘King’.
Actually there is a lot of confusion regarding, who is the King of Bollywood...in my view, I think, we the audience are the real King of Bollywood, Coz by our efforts, the films of these stars has became successful. So the original King is the audience, because for us they are making their films and by our effort, they are able to sustain in this film industry (which continuously tries to pull them down).
I think, actors and directors should know about the real King of Bollywood and start to make some good films rather than running for the title of ‘King’.
It doesn’t matter, how much money they charge or paid for films, but the films they made are worth to watch. We don’t care, whether Shahrukh is King or Akshay is Singh, but we only care for our 100 bucks for the movie, “our Paisa should be wasool”.

BOLLYWOOD MOVIES IN 2008

Bollywood, the most glamorous part of India, this year is not seems to be good for bollywood, as many films were released on different topic, what we called ‘zara hatke movies’, but very few of them are able to conquer the heart of audience. The expected high movies sank and less expected movies goes on high.
The big budget movies like ‘Tashan’, ‘Thoda pyaar thoda magic’ and ‘love story 2050’ were not struck on the screen more than two weeks. Bollywood has lost more than 350 crore in this year, even the films with big stars such as ‘Jodha Akbar’ and ‘U,me aur hum’ haven’t done well. The director of ‘Jodha Akbar’, Ashutosh Gowarikar, a well known director, has not able to re-create the same magic like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Swades’.
The low budget movies like ‘Aamir’, ‘Mithya’ and ‘Jannat’ were attracted the audience much and done well in box office.
Anees Bazmee’s ‘Singh is King’ was quite grossing in terms of money-maker, but film lacks the story line. After spending and watching 120 mins on this film, you will realize why its 1200 copies were sold-up in one week only, because after that, nobody wants to buy its print. Anees Bazmee is a director of two great movies ‘Pyaar toh hona hi tha’ and ‘No entry’, than also he has made the film like ‘Singh is king’, I don’t know why….? May be ….age effect (ha-ha)

‘Jaane tu ya jaane na’...what I called a young generation movie (mind-blowing), the movie was perfect in every sense, direction-acting-songs…everything of this movie was good. Even though the movie had an all newcomer cast, it has done really well in smaller as well as bigger towns and became one of the best movie of this year. Amir khan, again proved himself ‘a perfectionist’ and a quite good entrepreneur for producing two films ‘Taare zameen par’ and now ‘Jaane tu ya jaane na’.

As a debutant, Ranbir kapoor has collected a lot of fame than any other new comer; well he has to be as he is a son of Rishi kapoor. In ‘Bachna aie haseeno’, Ranbir washed out his stains which was struck after his performance in ‘Sawaariya’ (unfortunately not done well in the box office) and proved others as he is going to be next legend of Kapoor khaandaan.

Our films are based on many present topics and became a starter and solutions of many problems. These days terrorism is on a high, so our directors also developed new method to curb it. The movie ‘Wednesday’ is based on the terrorist attack and makers of it has given a very unusual, but in some way a good idea to fight against terrorism.
The chances of low budget movie to do well on the box office is more than the big budget movies, as it easily cover the budget and become a hit on the box office. That’s the main reason of these movies to do well in box office, but some of them is really having good direction like the movie ‘Wednesday’, ‘Mithya’, ‘Bhootnath’ and ‘Sarkar raj’.
The recent hungama on the box office is created by the most popular movie of this year Farhan Akhtar’s ‘rock on’. The production, design and styling of the movie are perfect. The different storyline-direction and good songs are really attracted the public. Farhan and Arjun rampal were born to be a rock stars and it seemed their childhood dream comes true by this movie. This film is said to be he biggest hit of this year, everybody is saying that it is better than the ‘Jaane tu ya jaane na’.
Unfortunately, I have not seen ‘Rock on’ yet, but I will definetly see it as soon as possible as I get free.
Farhan really needs appreciation as he took a risk of his directorial image and acts as a debutant in his movie and even sung songs of this movie. He has proved himself as a seven number scorpio by Acting, Directing, Producing and now as a singer in his movie ‘Rock on’.
Excel entertainment (headed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani) is continually growing up by the effort of these two young boys.

So that’s all what I liked about this year 2008 of bollywood. There are lots of shits and things to be discuss about bollywood, but I have written what need to be focused and discuss.

In my next artile, I will discuss some more things of Bollywood which became a head and tail of bollywood. Wait, till I complete it.

WORLD TRADE CENTER - BEGINING OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM

September 11, will always be remember as ‘unforgettable day’ for Americans. On 11th September 2001, the tallest tower of the world, called as Twin towers or world trade center (WTC), vanished in the air, like a mud in the sea and marked it as a unsolved history of ‘who had done this…?’
Some says it was a terrorist attack by Al-Qaeda, some says it was political mystery of America or some says it was an attack of Jews on Americans, but it remained as a mystery and world knows it as a terrorist attack.
Today, it is a seventh anniversary of what the Americans have taught us to call 9/11 attack on WTC. The 21st century began with demolition of world trade center and marking a beginning of international terrorism.
No doubt, US became a super power in the world after the World War II, but then also, the super power status of America was not able to restrict the gateway of terrorism in their owns country.
The destruction of the world trade center struck a blow not only at the institutions of America and global capitalism but at the self confidence that undergirded them. In a country that despite fighting a dozen major war in its history, had not seen a direct attack on a major city like New York in living memory.
As I told you, it remains a mystery as ‘who had done this?’ Everybody is thinking about the involvement of the Al-Qaeda, and may be there was an involvement of it, but Al-Qaeda has got its popularity, as never it had before.
Al-Qaeda’s chief ‘Osama bin laden’ in his released tape, had denied about his involvement in this attack but said, ‘whoever had done this, had done a very good job’.
This leads America to attack on Afghanistan, which was considered to be a centre of Al-Qaeda.
Now, I want to ask one question, the attack on WTC was considered as a terrorism attack, though there was no perfect clue of it, and the attack of America on Afghanistan,
Isn’t it considered to be terrorism?
Because it was attack by America or it was a legal war, so it doesn’t make it a terrorist attack.
In both cases, there are massive killing of innocent peoples. Just because of destruction of WTC, America destroyed the whole country of Afghanistan in search of Osama bin laden, and at last, they didn’t find him.
The result is that, even after 7 years of US attack on Afghanistan, the Afghanistan is yet not able to remunerate its resources and make a development of mankind.
The United Nations organization, name itself depict the unity of nations, which works for peace and cooperation among nations, but where it was, where was that unity of nation, peace and cooperation, when Americans attacked on Afghanistan, where thousands of lives were taken away by the president bush arrogant nature.
These treaties are the monopoly of big countries like US, China, Russia etc and not for the underdeveloped countries like Afghanistan.
After 9/11, we have seen the opposite of the earlier attitude of the bush administration: war in Afghanistan, the invasion in Iraq, and the destruction of Baghdad.
Are the lives of peoples living in countries like higher than the lives of peoples living in Afghanistan or Iraq…? Or the thinking of Americans is so high that they are not able to make a difference between terrorism attack and their own attack on other countries.
I think Americans should not forget, Benjamin Franklin’s wise dictum, that,
“Those sacrifice liberty for the security will end up with neither”

BHARAT MATA KI JAI.....!!!

The four year controversy over the M.F.Hussain’s painting ‘Bharat mata’, put to rest by the Supreme Court. The argument that the painting, which depicted a nude woman as mother India, had hurt the sentiments of every sane citizen did not impress the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court refused the petition and termed M.F.Hussain’s painting ‘a work of Art’. Now, 93 years M.F.Hussain, who has been in self imposed exile, since January 2006 in Dubai and London, when some RIGHT-WING groups threatened him with dire consequences, is able to return India.
I think petitioner should stop filing these types of unnecessary petition against the innocent person like M.F.Hussain.
The RIGHT-WING groups, what do you understand by this..? Some group of a person, who really cares for the rights of peoples. But which rights, Do we really cares for the rights…? Yeah off course, we are, because we are filing petition against the person like M.F.Hussain, who is just showing his style of arts, what about those people who unnecessarily forcing Marathi language and culture over the people living in Maharashtra.
I think you got my guess, whom I am talking about, yeah Mr. Raj Thakarey, a man who has such a big power in his hands, in his just two words, his follower is ready to cut throat of others. Instead of using his power in right direction or for the betterment and development of Maharashtra, he is using it in a unnecessary thing and making Maharashtra worse day by day.
I respect all languages and make a proud of it, because it contains India’s culture and diversity in its linguistic nature. But it doesn’t mean that if I like Marathi so it must be force others to speak.
Raj thakeray’ thinking is very different; he is saying that if somebody is living in Maharashtra so he should speak Marathi because Marathi is the official language of Maharashtra. But I would rather say, first he is a citizen of India, and Hindi is the national language of the country, so he should speak Hindi instead of Marathi, which is a secondary language.
The division of states in India is because of the better efficiency of governance, it doesn’t mean to divide citizen’s thinking on the basis of its region.
So my country’s RIGHT-WING groups, you should all file petitions in which really violation of rights occurs. In this case of Marathi language, peoples would really feel good and impressed, if Supreme Court should take some restrictive measures against these MNS leaders.
So peoples of India, stop dividing India on the basis of language and culture of different region and stop saying, we are Marathi, we are Punjabi, or we are south Indian or north Indian.
“Let’s say we are INDIANS”

FORMATION OF STATES IN INDIA....

India is one of the biggest country in the world. It ranked 7th in terms of area and land acquisition, among all other countries in the world. The geographical structure of this country is very different from the rest of the countries. As you all know, India is the largest peninsula in the world, so it is covered with water from its three sides. The northern part of the country is covered by great Himalayas. So, due to its vast area and nature, it is difficult to govern whole of India with singular structure.
For the better governance or for the administrative purpose, India is divided into three sections: 1) the National Capital territory, 2) States, 3) union territories.
New Delhi is the capital of India, so it comes under the National Capital Territory (NCT). It is called as National capital territory of Delhi. Delhi has its own chief minister (council of ministers) and elected legislative assembly.
Apart from this, state divides India into 28 parts i.e. India has 28 states. There are seven union territories in India at present.
The difference between the states and the union territory is that, a union territory is a sub-national administration division of India. Union territories are ruled directly by the federal national government. The president of India appoints an administrator or lieutenant governor for each territory. But in states, it has its own selected government and has its own council of ministers and legislative assembly. Unlike, union territory the state has its chief minister.
The formation of the states and the union territory in India were the long process. The sub continent of India has been ruled by many different ethnic groups throughout its history, each imposing their own administration division in the regions.

Here, I am going to discuss it, from the British India to the present India.

The British India was made up of two types of states, the provinces and the princely states. Provinces were ruled directly by British officials, either a governor or chief commissioner, who were appointed by the viceroy.
Princely states were ruled by local hereditary rulers, who acknowledged British sovereignty in return for local autonomy.
British India had 15 provinces: Ajmer-merwara, Assam, Baluchistan, Bengal, Bihar, Bombay, Central provinces and berar, Coorg, Delhi, Madras, Northwest Frontiers, Orissa, Punjab, Sind and United Provinces and had hundreds of princely states, which diffrered in size, and with wide variation in population.
Most of the princely states were under the authority of a British political agent responsible to the governor of a province, but the four largest princely states, Hyderabad, Baroda, Mysore and Jammu and Kashmir, were directly under the authority of governor-general of India.

After the independence, the period between 1947 and 1950 witnessed the consolidation of the former princely states into new provinces, usually governed by a rajpramukh (governor), appointed by the governor-general of India. In 1950, the Indian constitution took effect, the office of the governor-general was abolished and India created several different categories of states.
Part- A states, which were the former provinces, were ruled by an elected governor and state legislature. The part A states (nine) were Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Bombay, M.P. (formerly central provinces and berar), Madras, Orissa, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh (formerly united province).

The part B states (eight) were fomer princely states or groups of princely states, governed by a rajpramukh. They were Hyderabad, Saurashtra, Mysore, Travancore-cochin, Madhya bharat, Vindhya Pradesh, Patiala and east Punjab states union (PEPSU), and Rajasthan.

The part C states (10) included both former princely states and provinces. They were governed by a chief commissioner. They are Delhi, Kutch, Himachal Pradesh, Bilaspur, Coorg, Bhopal, Manipur, Ajmer and tripura. J&K had special status until 1957.

The former French and Portuguese colonies in India were incorporated as the union territories of Pondicherry, Dadra, Nagar Haveli, Goa, Daman and Diu in 1962.
In 1953, the telugu- speaking portion of Madras state voted to became the new state of Andhra Pradesh, the first of India’s linguistic states.
In 1956, when the state Re-Organization Act took effect, the distinction between part A, B, and C states were gone and state boundaries were drawn along linguistic lines. Many new states and union territories have been created out since 1956.

Bombay state was split into the linguistic states of Gujarat and Maharashtra on 1 may, 1960 by the Bombay Re-Organization Act. The Punjab Re-Organization Act of 1966 divided the Punjab along linguistic and religious lines, creating a new Hindu and Hindi speaking state of Haryana, transferring northern district of Punjab to Himachal Pradesh and designating, Chandigarh, the shared capital of Punjab and Haryana, a union territory.
Nagaland was made a state in 1962, Meghalaya and Himachal Pradesh in 1971, and Tripura and Manipur in 1972.
The Kingdom of Sikkim joined the Indian union as a state in 1975. Mizoram was made a state in 1986 and Goa and Arunachal in 1987, while Goa’s northern exclaves of Daman and Diu became a separate union territory.
In 2000, three states were created, chattisgarh(nov.1 2000) was created out of eastern Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal (nov. 9, 2000) since renamed Uttarakhand (jan.1, 2008) was created out of hilly regions of north west UP and Jharkhand (15 nov. 2000) was created out of the southern district of Bihar.
National capitol territory of Delhi comes under the union Territory of India. The NCT of Delhi and pondicherry, are the only UT which has their own elected legislative assemblies and council of minister, but their powers are limited, certain legislation must be reserved for the consideration of assent of the president of India.
So this is the Formation of states in India, as it was a long process but I have written it in a brief way, so that everybody can understand this article of mine. Next time, if anybody asks you about the states and Union territory of India, so make sure him in a correct way.

THANK YOU,

ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN INDIA....

Our national language is Hindi, but we speak many languages in India. Some of them are Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Urdu, Gujarati, Malayalam, Sindhi, Punjabi, Manipuri, Kashmiri, Sanskrit etc. every region has its own language, but if we see in a general way, then everybody wants to speak in English. It become a symbol of education and literacy, after all I m also writing this article in English.
When English was first introduced in India, it was considered as a foreign language and many of them boycotted it because of it British nature. But, this English language has given us a many things; firstly, it broke the intellectual isolation among Indians, secondly, it unite us to speak one language, before it was difficult to unite Indian as they were speaking their own local language, thirdly, it helps to understand the writings of foreigners which gave us a broad sense of thinking etc.
The English language has contributed a vast majority of things but here I am not going to discuss these things, I m just here to ask,... Is English language really a foreign language for Indians after many years of its birth? Before independence to the present day, India has produced many English writers, who are not only famous in India, but also in world they have their own identity.
Though foreign in its origin, English has been adopted in India as a language of education and literacy expression besides being an important medium of communication on a vast scale.
Its history in India commences with Raja Ram Mohan Roy’s (1774-1833) campaign for introduction of scientific education in India through the English medium.
He could use the English language effectively, though he learnt it only after he was 16 years of age. But when Vivekananda spoke and wrote in English, Americans described him as a ‘perfect master of the English language’
Among those whose writings in prose are considered as a literature, the names of Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964) stands out. He particularly remembered for his ‘glimpses of world history’, ‘discovery of India’, and ‘an autobiography’ (1936). Gandhiji is reported to have cultivated English carefully, his precision, economy and clarity in the use of English is unequalled and strong instrument in his hands.
Nirad chaudhary, (1897-1999) is an internationally accepted writer of English. His ‘autobiography of an unknown India’ (1951) is particularly well known.
We have extraordinary girl Toru dutt (1855-76) who died at 21 leaving some fine poems, and then we have Sarojini naidu (1879-1949), where whose romanticism charmed readers in India and Europe. Aurobindo (1872-1950) who had his education in Cambridge mastered English, Greek and Latin but also French and Italian (savitiri, life divine- 2vols). Tagore’s Geetanjali won the Nobel Prize 1913; the lyrical quality of Geetanjali is universally accepted.
In the field of Indian English novel, the three senior writers who began to write in the early thirties are Mulk raj anand, R.k.narayana, and Raja rao. Anand’s major novels coolie (1933), untouchable (1935), the woman and the cow (1960) reveal his concern for the underprivileged in India.
R.k.narayana has projected ‘malgudi’ as the locale for most of his stories ‘swami and his friends (1935), bachelor of arts (1937), financial expert (1952), the guide (1959) and waiting for the mahatma (1955) are his popular novels.
Raja Rao’s kanathapura (1938), the serpent and the rope (1960), and the cat and Shakespeare (1965) are significant achievements.
The first Indian novelist to make significant impact on the English literary world was G.v.desani. His ‘all about H. Hatter’ created quite a stir in London’s literary circles and as a result back home as well.
Some other big names in Indo Anglian writing includes M.Ananthanarayana bhabani Bhattacharya (who died in the US in 1988), Manohar malgoankar, Arun joshi, Kamala markandaya, Bharati mukherjee, Khushwant singh, Anita desai, Nayantara sehgal, Salman rushdie (midnight’s children), Ruskin bond (the room on the roof), Vikram seth (a suitable boy), Shashi tharoor (show business, the great Indian novel), Vikram chandra (red earth and pouring rain), Shobaa de and Ginu kamani etc.
Indian writing has thrown up names of the caliber of Manjule padmanabhan (The harvest), booker winner Arundhati roy (the god of small things), Manju kapur (difficult daughter), Raj kamal jha (the blue bed spread), Anurag mathur (the inscrutable americans), Pulizer prizewinner Jhumpa lahiri (the interpretation of Maldives, the namesake), Kiran desai (hullabaloo, in a guava orchard, inheritance of loss), Sashi tharoor (riot:A novel), Kavita daswani (everything happens for a reason) and Tabish khair’s (Filming:a lovestory) etc.
I have given many writer’s name who are worldly famous and admired and there are plenty of other writers present in India and writing a world-class novel. So now we cannot say that English is a foreign language for us, infact, English is a language which has given us a distinct style of writing and its importance in present times as well as in future also.
So, my friends, my idea of this article is to aware you of the importance of this foreign language which is now became natïve language for all of us.

HAPPY TEACHER'S DAY - BUT...................

On 5th of September, we celebrate Happy Teacher’s day, on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. May be, if Dr. Radhakrishnan is seeing us (from heaven...), then he will be very happy because we celebrating his birthday in the whole country. We, the Indians, are very much fond of these days, specially the children, because for them, it is meant for holiday, some of our school do more than that, they organize gathering in school campus and principle gave some lecture on the specialty of this occasion and off course about Dr. Radhakrishnan and his contribution in educational development in India.
But, Do we really care for this Teacher’s day and educational system in India…? Off course, official national policy is undoubtedly in favor of promoting education. Many programmers like ‘each one teaches one’ policy, essay competition on swami Vivekananda, and seminars on ‘importance of education’ etc.
But what about the other side…we have a country where nearly half of population is illiterate but which has produced the world’s second largest pool of trained scientist and engineers. A country invests more sophisticated software for US computer manufacturers than any other country in the world, and yet, in which there are at least 35 million children who have not seen the inside of a school.
In papers, approximately 290 millions students are attending classes somewhere in our country and yet, India has made only uneven progress in educating its population. Our national literacy rate officially stands at 66 %. UNESCO defines as illiterate person as one, who cannot, with understanding, both read and write a short, simple statement on their everyday life. By the definition, I fear that fewer than half our population would really qualify as literate.
While in kerala has a literacy rate of nearly 100%, Bihar is only at 44% (and has a female literacy rate of only 29%). No wonder, we are ranked 147th out of 177th countries measured for literacy by UNESCO.
The lack of resources to meet with the dramatic growth in population, we need to build a new school every day for 10 years just to educate the children already born. Thus, the universal primary education is available in the favor of fewer than half of India’s children between the ages of six to fourteen to attend a school.
India alone accounts for 35% of the entire world’s population of children who are not in school. It is true that, 61 years after independence, progress has slow. India spends less than 4% of its GNP on education (3.6% current amount) as compare to other countries which spends 25% of its GNP.
How we are going to meet the demands of 21st century, the information age, if half of our population cannot sign their names or read a newspaper. The world will be able to tell the rich from the poor not by GNP figures but by their internet connections. We have no choice, but to run in this race.
Our primary school system has become one of the largest in the world, with 150 million children enrolled. But let’s face it; we have sometimes focused on quantity rather than quality. Government has simply raised enrolment but without ensuring the quality and high learning education in schools. Thirty seven % of all Indian primary school children drop out before reaching the 5th standard. The illiterate population of India exceeds the total combined population of North America continent and Japan. So my friends please educate the children, because they are the future of tomorrow and they only will become the Teachers of tomorrow. So, celebrate the celebration of Teacher’s day.
Happy Teacher’s day to all of you…

IF LOVE IS BLIND, SO THE JUSTICE IS ....???

Recently, there was a case, in which supreme court accused and convicted a boy (19 year old) on the charged of raped a girl, who is at that time 16 year old (minor), despites the girl confessing that she had a sex as she was in love with him, and gave him a 3 years imprisonment and Rs 10,000 as a fine.
In the constitution of India, sex with minor (below 16 years) with consent or without her consent is considered as a rape.
Here in this case, girl herself confessed that she was in love with him and had a sex. So the question is,… Isn’t it too harsh punishment for the boy? Just because he had loved a girl and had a sex with her with her consent and in return having a 3 years imprisonment and Rs 10,000 fine.
Just one judgment of Supreme Court, made the boy an offender of raping a girl. In my opinion, the judges must see the intention of the convict before charging him anything and in this case also, I don’t find any malice intention of a boy, while doing an act. I hope the judges of Supreme Court will see and considered these things also while deciding the cases like this.
So my friends, the moral of this article is, never indulge in any relationship with minor girl and if you are then make sure, that the girl is not fooling you by saying that I am not a minor, after all there are plenty of other girls also present in this world (ha-ha…in a humorous way….don’t be serious).

THE TIMES OF INDIA...

May be you are thinking, what and why I am going to write an article on times of India, because everybody wants to write an article in times of India, but I am writing on it. After reading this article, you will come to know and understand it.

Indians are known for its culture and different traditions. In India, there are about 1000 millions peoples living and all of them having a distinct style and their communication ways. The cultural diversity of India gives it a distinct identity of its own like cuisines, clothing, music, dances, architecture, art and literature etc. although many aspects plays an important role in culture and tradition but the languages which we speak or make for a conversation hold an important place. There are about more 250 languages, which are spoken by the Indians.
For representing to these languages or for these language, approximately 2850 daily newspaper with 670 English dailies newspaper published and printed in every region of the country, which includes all regional languages, local languages, along with English language.
Some of the noted newspaper among them are, Hindusatan, Hindusatn times, the Hindu, Amar ujala, Dainik jagaran, DNA, Midday, the Indian express, Ajkaal, Asia news, Bhihar times, Bombay Samachaar, daily news etc. but among all of them, THE TIMES OF INDIA, is most popular and accepted newspaper in all over the India.
The times of India was founded on November 3, 1838 as The Bombay Times and Journal of Commerce and served the British colonist of western India. It adopted its present nature in 1861. It was launched as a bi-weekly edition and published only on Saturday and Wednesday. In the beginning, it contained the news mainly from Europe and then from America and other sub-continent and it was regular conveyed between India and Europe via regular steamship. The daily publications of the paper were started from 1850 and by 1861. In 19th denture, this newspaper company employed more than 800 peoples and had a sizeable circulation in India and Europe.
Originally, British owned and controlled this newspaper in India and the last British editor was Ivor.s.jehu, who resigned the editorship in 1950.
It was after India’s independence that the ownership of the paper passed on to the then famous industrial family of Dalmiyas and later it was Sahi shaanti jain of the Sahu Jain Group from Bijnore, UP.
Currently, the times of India is published by the media group Bennett Coleman & co. ltd. This company along with other group companies, known as The Times Group.
The times of India is famous for its best editing and quality of news. Some of the most popular character created by TOI like ‘Jug suraiya’s dubyaman II’ and jugular vein, ‘R.K.laxman’s you said it’, he is known to be a best cartoonist in India. Shashi tharoor and Shobaa de on its editorial pages which is only on Sunday and there are many more things which makes it different from others.
The times of India has been certified by the Audit bureau of circulations as having became the world’s largest selling English newspaper or broadsheet – ahead of giants like USA today and Wall street journal, Times London and The Guardian, with more than 2.4 million newspaper copies sold everyday and it is increasing day by day.
The absolute size of the available English literate audience in India is at just about 60-70 million, which is far smaller than in markets like the USA (200 million plus) or the UK. The difference is that, unlike in these western markets, where readership of newspaper is highly fragmented and no one brand has been able to build a high share of the large available audience. Then also, the Indian newspaper, ‘ The Times of India’ is able to be the world’s largest selling English broadsheet newspaper. It is choice of about 30 percent of all English readers in India.
Now I think you understand, why I have written this article on Times of India, besides a lot of good newspaper in India, but The Times of India really deserves this article, after all this newspaper keep serving us from before independence to present day.
So my friends, go and take a TEA with TOI.

PLEASE DONT SAY.....

Yesterday, in my class one of my friend said that, 95 % of Muslim countries indulge in terrorism. He was asking me, ‘why only the Muslims involving in these activities?’ I was totally stunned by his question and felt very embarrassed.
There are some people in the world, who thinks that Islam is the only religion who teaches terrorism and aggressiveness for others. But this is very wrong perception among the peoples; they can’t blame the whole community just because of the few peoples who indulge in terrorism.
Recently there was a case, where ten employees of call center raped a girl in the van of a call center, all of them are Hindus. So, should I blame the Hindu religion for this? May be, I can, but I will never say this because I know none of the religions teach this. It is not a mistake of religion; it is a mistake of person. Those people, who do these activities, have no religion.
As I have already mention in my first article on jihad and terrorism, that there is no place of terrorism in Islam. Those Muslims, who indulge in terrorists activities, are Muslims by names only.
So please, I have a say for all, don’t blame Islam just because of these unfaithful terrorist who has no religion, because it hurts when somebody calls Muslims as a terrorist.
