Chiru Savvadi .. Praja Rajyam

Finally, putting an end to the speculation, K. Chiranjeevi (Varaprasad) has announced his party and he symbol... In a very filmi dhaasoo style, he announced it and the name is "praja Rajyam".. the flag, a white base with green border and a red shining sun.

My reactions..

Name is okay, not too catchy for me.. need to read the full manifesto and see it in implementation and then belive.

The flag is good.. the feel is good.

Extempore speech and dramatics.. good to watch.. but are they good enough to rule??

The best thing about todays intro was no harsh words for any individual or any party.. just his views and vision..

I will be more than happy if he does some social service and not fall into that self-service mode..

Good luck AP!!

Tumhe Sab Hai Pataa..


Sometimes, some songs just linger on with the mood you are in currently.. This particular song is particularly stirring considering how lonely an innocent soul feels when all the people who think are his own seemingly betray his trust.. every time I listen to this song, I feel as if someone is squeezing the insides of my heart and soul and the entire being...

Miss you amma.. miss you the most..

I am in a restricted network where I cannot access a lot of sites, hence not embedding the you tube link..

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin.. Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main..Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata,,Meri Maa

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe..Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Bhej Na Itna Door Mujhko Tu..Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Kya Itna Bura Hoon Main Maa
Kya Itna Bura... Meri Maa

Jab Bhi Kabhi Papa Mujhe..Jo Zor Se Jhoola Jhulate Hain Maa
Meri Nazar Dhoondhe Tujhe..Sochun Yahin Tu Aa Ke Thaamegi Maa

Unse Main Yeh Kehta Nahin..Par Main Seham Jaata Hoon Maa
Chehre Pe Aana Deta Nahin..Dil Hi Dil Mein Ghabraata Hoon Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata Hai Naa Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata Meri Maa

The pain and the fears of the kid are well depicted in the lyrics.. hats off Aamir for this master piece and Darsheel for living it up... muuah kiddo.

Why Does One Have To??

There are times when I feel like lashing out on each and every individual that passes a comment on disabled people.. why the hell do people have to think about them as unfortunate guys and try to give sympathy or try to act like mahatma doing some favor to them. Believe me, this kind of attention-grabbing by ooh-aaah- ayyo papam savior attitude is no good for them and the one doing that too..

Why doesnt one think of them as differently-abled guys and let them live their life with some help if possible or keeping quite.. I dont think it would be asking for much.. just let them BE.

One More Win!!

Another win that made me feel good is of Roger Federer in the doubles category.. surprisingly the first olympic medal for him and may be even the last.. I have some scores to settle with this guy (err.. my bro actually, he once downloaded every single match played by this guy and took my net bill to a huge 54K).. but still, cant just help but feel good each time he wins a match.. he makes the win seem so effortless at times (well, agreed I watch sports rarely but when I do he does;))

He Did It!!!

The 8th medal is won and he did what he set out to.. I am very very very happy and it sure does lift my spirit tremendously. Nothing is impossible if you set out your mind on it..

PHELPS is the hero of the decade for me!! Way to go.. 14 olympic medals and I wish many more to go to this young man!!

Phelps .. The Human Whale



.. Aqua Gladiatior is how he is referred to as and deservingly so.. am really amazed at this guy's single-minded determination, extreme focus with eyes set on one goal, 8 medal victory a new world olympic record. It is really rare to see such kind of motivation and determination and it gives me a great pleasure to see him equal the existing record by Mark Spitz, another American.

It is extremely heartening to see the motivation and the recognition one gets from their nation.. looking at the number of medals, in fact more than the contestants that represent India, I just hope and pray India too competes with other nations just like it does in all other fields.

This victory also reminds me of Ian Thorpe (LINK HERE), my favorite swimmer from Australia and cant but help feel sad at his early retirement citing waning motivation as the reason.. Agreed after every rise there is a fall but I would like the rise to be complete before the downfall begins..




I wish all the very best to Phelps and cant to wait the much-deserving win with him and the entire world..

yay Abhinav!! You made us proud..

What more could give me pleasure than a gold medal in this depressingly pouring skies and running nose (at the rate I am squeezing the nose and soaking up the towels, I wonder I am still not dehydrated)..

It is no doubt a moment of glory to every Indian but the single-minded determination of the individual and the family concerned is the only factor contributing to his victory. I take pride in the win.. you made our day!! Long live kiddo!!

My India...

I am in my homeland and do not know whether to feel happy at the nonstop rains or feel sad for us being so unprepared.. all the time either ativrushti or anaavrushti.. the power cuta, lack of rains, hike in daily commodities, increase in bribery, decrease in human values, rich getting richer and poor getting pooere scenario, everything is getting to me..

This was my first ever time in Mumbai thanks to bro and mom staying out here.. so kind of new place, but felt instantly at home whent the airport staff demanded JUST 30 dollars for my speedy exit.. WTH??? I paid the airlines the fare along with the taxes right and 30$ is half days pay of minimum wages even in US which you guys obviously want to earn in 2 minutes!!!! And yeah, should obviously be paid for degrading our nation so much and scaring people like me coming back home for good to settle.. you give us creeps and make us rethink about our decision.. sorry to say but India stinks and really bad at this aspect.. I love my country but hate a few of its facets.. :((.

Coming to my crib about rains.. why dont the governments who crib and cry when there are no rains just be prepared for scenarios like flash floods, rising water levels, etc beforehand.. oops, I forgot they are busy hurling notes at each other and trying to figure out how to come to power or rather stay there by hook or crook or whatever the hell it is.

It is the season of weddings and new beginnings and looking at all the hungama, obscene display of wealth and status, I cant help but wonder whether the overexcited families give a damn about the budding new lives or just hell bent on getting their wishes fulfilled at the cost of scarring the young minds forever.. the relief and happiness on the bride's side for getting their loved one married for a secured future and the insecurity of losing grip on the son's life and the need to show the newly wed that we are still in control from the groom's side, the anxiety and the fear of the young couple.. somehow, it is suffocating at times, why dont people let things happen peacefully and bring in their fears everywhere making the life hell.. too much of negativity bottled up I guess. I need a break from such festivities for a while... and also the health, jet lag, rains, nothing is helping..

and as they say, I should find happiness within myself and bounce back higher..

Slice of Life..

There are times when we do not realize what we are into and how deep into unless you break free and think afresh..

It is just unbeleivable what insecurity and hopelessness can do to any person and negativity creeping up does not help either..

It is better to pull up your own strings before you shrink further.... It is just one slice that life offers you that is rotten, keep going..
