Tribute to courage?

How can people believe to be paying tribute to the 26/11 martyrs by attending some stupid peace meet? 'Tribute to courage' held at the India Gate this evening is one such an example. 26/11 anniversary has already been media hyped but there are no productive results. Can we have slain ATS Hemant Karkare's wife sleep peacefully tonight? Or can we have Late Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan's parents heave a sigh of relief that tomorrow we would not have to shed blood for blood? Such gatherings don't have any positive motive to stop terrorism. We all love our country, want peace, and want to lead peaceful lives. Definitely lighting candles and holding charity events and materializing such social gatherings can never restore peace, or eliminate the fear of terrorism in our minds. The only possible way is by fastening the Kasab case and by revealing its content. Kasab has to be punished. From the time the 26/11 took place, media has always come up with flash news such as 'Pak is not doing enough', 'Pak is not serious'. That's all we've been hearing. It's been a year now, the Taj has got back to its feet, Karkare's family has moved on with hopeful eyes, but Kasab is not yet punished. We always land up focusing at the wrong things. We had a recent article and a photo clip of the PM partying with Obama when he visited the U.S. during this period. It was indicating that he was partying there as the nation acknowledges the 26/11 a year after its occurrence. What do you expect the PM to do? He was there to sort out the rising problem of terrorism, you can't expect him to mourn and start crying there. That's not how mistakes are rectified. For a change, focus on what we are doing. SRK wore a nice suit addressing how proud he is to be an Indian, Javed sahab with some of his beautiful poetry and the likes only expressed how sorry they all are. We all are sorry. But why is the Govt. taking so much time to punish Kasab? The Babri Masjid case came up after such a long time and I have never seen so much importance given to any other case as this one has been attended to by the media. Several debates and ‘tweets’, etc. has only shown how much of precious time we are wasting on such issues. I have never seen such a coverage being done on the state of the Policeman in our country, or the state of illiteracy in our country. What's more important is restoring the belief on Lord Ram within Hindus which at the first place has not gone at all! What restoring and proofs does one want to give to prove that Ayodha is an important historical place accounting to Hindu beliefs? Move on.

Tribute to courage - was a mere social gathering of a lot of celebrities from the entertainment field and the politicians. But apart from that I don't think that the people feel any safer now. Like how Karkare's wife had very diligently put across how 'superficial' all these ways are to show India's tribute. Lighting candles, gathering people over a few consoling words, talking great promising words on the security is not going to being about the change we are looking forward to. It's only going to waste wax and time. The bottom line is that the culprit has to be punished. And definitely not after permitting a time span of 20 years but to materialize ASAP. That is the only way we can restore the faith in the people, restore belief in our Government and restore faith in eradicating Terrorism forever.

A tale of self proclaimed King and his slaves

K.C.Singh had exactly the right words to use when he was asked to speak at the Times Now Debate. It was nice to see a patient Sitaram and Mr. Manish should definitely take some anger management classes from him. Obama having given China the 'opportunity' to play cupid for Indo-Pak relations probably forgot about how legitimate it is for China to carry out this responsibility. Having an almost broken Tibet maybe Obama should realize what their 'actual' responsibility is. I will pour out any sarcastic comments here like the journalist but yeah! We definitely do not have to be envisaged by China and of course we can look after our selves!!! Mr. Singh did have something to point out. Our response on this issue came 24 hours later which actually portrays us as a tube light of some sort. I absolutely feel that we do not have to waste time on wondering if to be diplomatic to Obama as the PM will be visiting the U.S. in sometime. We have to be more vocal if someone is taking us for granted. Granted is not the word. I would say it's some sort of sweet subjugation! Sometimes it's within the nation sometimes it's some self proclaimed king and sometimes it's some superficial movie. 2012 is not the world end for heaven's sake! I wonder about being an inactive blogger when there's peace around. Obviously I would not be inspired then the way I am nowadays to blog about such appalling happenings. Would I prefer being a positive saint meditating in a peaceful world or would I prefer to blog and fulfill my 'journalism' dreams? Let me think about that over a cup of coffee...

What does the MNS think of themselves? Get a life people !!!!! (on Abu Azmi being attacked for taking the oath in Hindi )
All work and no play really rejuvenates me :) I guess today's gen are pretty much workaholic cos majority are enjoying what they do. I really have some quality work coming up soooon. That's one thing I will never give up for any best reason. I so believe in quality and that doesn't necessarily have to portray me as a perfectionist. I keep making a lot of mistakes... and will do so in the future because I am a creative person. And people who make mistakes are the ones who try to be innovative.

Stagnant growth

Fatwa against Vande Mataram? As if India is such a peaceful country that we need to actually sit down and think of giving birth to issues long forgotten to ruin the peace! I wish it were so...How many ever preachings and even practices and campaigns and wotnot cannot change the mindset of the religious thinker. The thing we can cry about and boast about is unfortunately the same thing : our culture. I think what I loved the most about Chak De apart from the script, direction and SRK is the dialogue which was enacted with so much of depth. The face that we need to start thinking from the point of few of India as a Nation and not as a Country of many States. Competition is healthy only when we compete with ourselves and not with other castes.

I don't want to get into politics yakking about how different politicians favour their States or religion. It's much beyond all that if you are looking for upgrading from a 3rd world country tag. Vande being unislamic or not is far away from the fact that we all belong to one Nation. How many wake calls can we give? Or perhaps it's the ignorance of a jobless man. There are a hundred million issues to be sorted out and assessed and we again end up wasting ample time upon issues which have no scope to extinguish. There should be an awareness among the men to educate their women and to give provide equality. Instead, decades after we have the anthem we have communities who find this way more important than sorting out the real issues. If this is a call for a bigger Pak then they are foolish enough to try it at this stage. Open your eyes and look around at all the injustice being done from Bribery to serial rapes and superstitions and we'll be surprised to see that what we are trying to debate on is absolutely worthless. We hardly recall the Anthem on a regular basis so it's high time we put a stop and start progressing in ascending manner .

A Peck on the cheek to Mr. Tharoor for telling all young Keralites when he had been to the Inaugural function of the gurukulam named for Ezhuthachan - " to know the world u must know English, to know Delhi u must know Hindi, & to know yourselves u must know Malayalam"
