Stop Moral Policing !

Just read on facebook that actress Gehna Vashisht was beaten up for wearing a bikini with the Indian flag. And the post said:
This was a sheer insult to our National flag, hence the people couldn't accept this,Good Job Done Guys...these people deserve this kind of treatment.A Soldier is dying for the safety of National flag and these bollywood morons insulting the nation flag.fair treatement given by some unknown social activists, after she evoked anger amongst the masses over her controversial bikini photo shoot.
I don't understand where does this moral police come from, into every scene. Who are these guys? Perhaps the products of Institute of Self-righteousness..
Anyway, in my opinion the act of beating her up was totally senseless ! Who gives one the right to decide what someone should do and what not. She is also an Indian. The flag also belongs to her. She has complete right to wear it as she pleases(but within the law).

And please ! we all know how much hypocrisy lies inside the moral police. They don't give a damn about the flag when they take or give bribes, or throw trash on roads and many countless things that shouldn't be done. Why shouldn't they be beaten up for that ??????

Break ke baad !

Why does it happen that you connect to the internet with a particular topic to search for but after 2 hours have passed and you are about to disconnect, you remind yourself, 'arre! mai karne kya aayi thi yaar?'
Self-imposed restrictions on the time of internet usage never seem to work for most of us! But why? The ocean of information and the inquisitive mind are difficult to part, right?

The same happened right now :D. So after 2-3 hours of aimless roaming on the internet, here I am, writing after nearly 6 months(on my new lappy, btw ;)  ).
Its like talking to myself, feels good. Its not that I totally parted with blogosphere. The thought of writing hit me many times, during my aimless surfing sessions. But engineering makes your brain so numb that you don't even find a topic to write on. Engineering subjects make you divorce the english language. But the love for writing needs to be nurtured with time and practice.
Beshak the quality of the post is shitty :D, but I'm still enjoying writing it.
So, what all changed in this time I was away. Well, petrol prices went up, Anna's movement became stronger, rounds of joota-throwings and thappad-baazi took place. Other than these, I have improved on guitar and have made my Life's to do list, after getting inspired by bro and Oprah(who keeps a visionboard).
Plus, no more days of berojgaari (Wipro people accepted to bear me :P). Next post about the fun experience.

New year and exams all went well. And how can we forget the recent V-day and its associated this-day and that-day covering the entire week, when everything around you is irritatingly red, whether the entire ads-loaded newspaper or every tv channel (except aastha maybe).

Hoping to be regular with blogging this time.

Which way?

Facing this situation for the second time. First after 12th class and now, when graduation is about to complete, again. The same questions that every student goes through...which way to go??
Once that is decided after giving it much thought (throughout graduation), then a different question arises...
Should one keep all options open by filling out all forms (Gate, mat, cat, psu's, placements etc) or one should focus all effort on just one target??

[Playing in background: Sawalon ki ungli..jawabon ki muthhi :P :D]

What's up

When surrounded by conflicting thoughts, and the mind isn't able to think further, some good music just does the trick. In a similar situation, I heard the song "Sanu ik pal chain na aave, sajna tere bina". There's something magical about this song. It is one of those songs that soothe out all the tensions in mind. That make you think "Life's a Bliss" :) 
Plus, I just completed "The God of small things". A great novel. It talks about the laws that govern who should be loved, and how, and how much. And about the writing, the way of putting up each situation is simply brillant. It comes so easy in her language, like we talk to each other in our daily lives. Arundhati's writing is so real that you relate to it as you read, particularly the description of how children think.
That's the thing I love about post-exams holidays. You do all that you had planned while preparing for exams, while not being able to concentrate ;)

O prah !

My favourite Oprah quotes:

As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.

Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi. 

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure. 

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it. 

Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment. 

Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. 

Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself. 

For everyone of us that succeeds, it's because there's somebody there to show you the way out. 

I always knew I was destined for greatness. 

I am a woman in process. I'm just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull. 

I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.  

I don't believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process. 

I don't think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who from an early age knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good. 

I don't think you ever stop giving. I really don't. I think it's an on-going process. And it's not just about being able to write a check. It's being able to touch somebody's life. 

Luck is when preparation meeting opportunity.  

I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes. 

If you come to fame not understanding who you are, it will define who you are. 

If you want to accomplish the goals of your life, you have to begin with the spirit. 

It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within - that you can begin to take control. 

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. 

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. 

Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not. 

So go ahead. Fall down. The world looks different from the ground. 

Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher. 

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. 

The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude. 

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. 

The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be. 

Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege. Use it. Dwell in possibility. 

Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have. 

What God intended for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine. 

What material success does is provide you with the ability to concentrate on other things that really matter. And that is being able to make a difference, not only in your own life, but in other people's lives. 

When I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes. 

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. 

Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. 

You CAN have it all. You just can't have it all at once. 

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.
