I am sure the initial reaction after the Czekoslavakia would cheer up anyone..

Right now, my andhra tastebuds are teasing me for a lot of things, but stuck in this place I have to make tp do with the grass that I get in the name of food.. anything you touch is costly and far away from being tasty by my standards..

I am..

I...

... Am made up of beliefs, opinions, ideas, feelings, emotions.

... Am a sober individual whose only life goal is to live it up fully.

... Am a person who when left alone blooms in full and gives the best to whatever is on hand.

... Am a person who gets suffocated to live a life thinking what might others think about what I say, so, or assume.

... Am a person who rebels when undue pressure is put on me to meet someone else's unreasonable expectations.

... Am a person who will give all in a relationship as long as it lasts but does never ever look back when it is tampered.

... Am a person who never tolerates injustice to self or others in front of me.

... Am a soft and kind person that can turn really nasty when dealing with liars and cheaters.


I AM NOT

... a person clamouring for pity of a person or a person involving in self-pity.

... a person who can be treated like a carpet on the floor.

... a person who will take nonsense and lies and most of all crap from some silly cows.

... a person who runs away from adversities.

... a person who accepts defeat without a battle.

... a person who can live with negativity for long.

There is a phase in life where everyone gets desperate to run out of the problem areas and seek security elsewhere.. in strangers, in friends, in anything drastic.. I did too, but only to realize NO ONE but you know what you are and never to expect understanding except within yourself.. when people judge you and try to change the core person you are, there is no point losing the identity and sticking on.. who gives a person a right to change the other person?? are we so perfect that we impose our ideas on others?? Start with one self IF and IF you need to change, no one else..

So, after a long battle of thoughts and deeds and looking back and looking into the future, I learn that I AM WHAT I AM..not what others (including my own parents) try to make me believe I am.

Never lament for the lost time make the best of what is ahead!!!

Meds For Sale!!

Well, for those wondering if I have shifted my loyalties from transcription and moved into pharmaceuticals, sorry not that..

I dont know if it is the same in all the places in India, but this kind of strikes strange to me.. when I get my prescription filled in the pharmacy, I get complete strips instead of the number prescribed..

for example, the doc gives me 2 tablets to take but I still end up buying the 10-tablet strip because they wont sell them loose it seems.. what the hell.. what will I do with the rest of them.. not that they are vitamin pills that i can pop or some snack for storage.. To hell with such rules, just regulate the sales and avoid misuse..

is it the same in all the places???

PS: I have figured out after talking to a lot of people ad even the doctors that that is how it is in Mumbai.. so I am left with strips and strips of meds with just a couple or 3 used up.. somehow, this practise does not seem right.. i ask a tablet and you give me a strip.. what do you expect me to do with the rest of them????

Jungle Raaj!!! SHAME

Sick and tired and scared to step outside in Mumbai.. a place in India, my motherland, the place which I take pride in belonging to.. but of late, I feel like a hypocrite..

The latest news of Rahul Raj's death really made me go mad.. RR Patil speaking as if he has prevented a hardcore criminal from letting loose in the society really blew my fuse off.. JUST SHUT that bloody mouth of yours man!!! it is you and the mechanism in the first place which is making the youth go crazy and resort to such extreme steps. I do not support the act but I dont want to see that mug of yours beaming with pride.. where the hell were te police when brothers from north were assaulted and where were they when the MNS workers attacked poor aspirants.. or when people like Raj Thackarey openly challenge their ability to stop him.

Shame on you!!! when all the youth was asking for was a mobile to talk to the commisioner and to kill Raj Thackarey or whatever and made it clear to everyone in the bus and outside that it was not his intention to kill anyone at that time.. the police could have shot him in the legs, arms, anywhere but why kill him.. to prove that you are protecting us, the innocent people from serious anti social elements!!!!

Go look at the mirror before making such merry statements and brag on our welfare issues. Your rule is so fragile that the whole city is held under ransom when a person is arrested for justified cause.. where the hell are we in a metro or in a jungle where the killer on the prowl is termed the leader????

Go die in spoonful of water, a cup is too big for you!!!! No wonder the misguided youth had so much anger in him.. my heart goes for the poor kid.. YOU and only YOU (the leaders) are responsible for such deeds.. I just hope the kid finds solace in the unknown world and a lot of peace.

Allah Ke Bande Hasde!!!



A very nice song which has caught my attention these days.. lovely lyrics

Toota toota ek parinda aise toota
Ke phir jud naa paaya
Loota loota kisne usko aise loota
Ke phir ud naa paaya
!!toota toota!!

Girta hua woh aasma se
Aakar gira zameen par
Khwabon mein phir bhi badal hi the
Woh kehta rahaa magar
Ke allah ke bande hasde allah ke bande
!!Allah!!

Kho ke aapne par hi to usne tha udnaa sikha
Kho ke aapne par hi to
Kho ke aapne par hi to usne tha ud naa sikha
Gham ko aapne saath mein lele dard bhi tere kaam aayega
!!Allah!!

Tukde tukde ho gaya tha har sapna jab woh toota
Tukde tukde ho gaya tha
Bhikre tukdon mein allah ki marzi ka manzar paayega
!!Allah!!

!!Toota toota!!

JP.. A fashion statement????

This is going to be a verbally violent post I guess.. I am very sensitive about certain issues, well ohhkay, agreed almost everything that is close to my heart :).

I strongly believe that the young and educated blood should flow into the political arena. No denying the contribution from the golden oldies but with changing needs and thoughts, we need the new generation stepping in willingly. Let me make it clear with this I dont mean the inheritance politics (Nehru -- now mysteriously changed to Gandhi family) and the likes, common man stepping out of the routine engineering and medicine mould taking a plunge into structuring the Indian Politics, the rapidly degenerating entity in my opinion.

I have seen groups come and go, sparkling ideas just fizzing out, what showed promise one day lacking enthu the next just leaving me to wonder WHY??

Coming to the context and the title, I see a lot of people giving their opinions on everything (of course, I am the first in doing so too) in politics, critical about each aspect from leaders, to corruption, to roads, to neighbors, to India.. everything but the root cause "themselves". I have seen a lot of forums and notice that a lot of people claim and agree that JP is the only one who can give good governance and corruption-free rule in AP. I agree and can even vouch for it completely but what is the use simply agreeing.. it looks fashionable to talk and support JP verbally and I am sure those who support it are the ones who rarely vote.. the educated employee young group that is.. why else is the so famous, so honest and blemish-free individual's leadership, though popular, shows no sign of coming to power in the near future or for that matter ever with undisputed majority?? why??

The manifesto, the proposed agenda, the clear-cut understanding of the problems and also solution to an extent not seeing the light of the day.. why is it that the silent revolution remains silent??? Why does the comment "perulo maatrame satta unna party"
do rounds.. just because they dont go around barking around people, follow the principle lead by example than by picking up other's fault and make a public show out of anything and also nothing.

Obviously, the contractors, the bigwigs, industrialists wont be supporting with huge backdoor donations because there is no profit or appropriate return or favor from a honest group that goes by the book.. just one example, I get a reciept even for 100/- that I donate and I am supposed to furnish my identity and proof to donate and without that they wont accept it.. phew!! how will all the black money ever find its way to the party, NO WAY, so it is for us to donate the amount, the much needed funds, remember every drop contributes to the ocean. PLEASE, stop using the name JP as fashion statement or just to look good in the group, do something!!!!!...

No my compalints are far from over...and finally Nanna Chiru.. where are you?? after successfully launching a party, without even knowing the name is already registered on someone else's name (and they say there has been a lot of groundwork done into the party stuff sigghhh) and near-ditto lifting Loksatta policies and goals and even lifting the name from one of the training programs of Lok Satta (Paja Rajyam), I hear no sound so far??? One wedding and one Siricilla visit drained you or waiting for the muhurtam to do things.. sir, this is politics and public service, we need action not waiting. Sadly after a month after the so-called phenomenal launch, I am still waiting for something original from you. Last but not the least, one nagging doubt.. if so many similarities with Loksatta Party, why launch a different party and split the vote bank rather than supporting Loksatta and taking an active role thereof, especially since you claim serving people is the main motto, nothing else.. can one do it only being the party president.. Ganji ninchi Benzi typelo samanyudini ninchi CM daaka ani manasulo pettukuni prajalni picchi pappalni cheyyakandi!!!

For Evil Eyes on LO
