Have noticed time, that after a long lull when you want to blog again, you start seeing sentences in every talk, tv show, new article absolutely everything, neglect people and linger to that one word which would become an partial sentence in your prose, develop a certain sense of ownerships of works of Dostoevsky and Coelho’s.
I am currently noticing all these symptoms, and this dewalies Sawariyya and Om shanti om, only aggravated those feeling further.

Most of the times we are so busy with our lifes, and everything around us, the roads, music, relationships evolves so discreetly. Near past blurs into current and future and we are left with no measure of our childhoon. All we have is hazy memories.
Until we come across some like this
and the perspective between contemporary and retro clears up.

As tough as “Charity begins at home” is unapt or at least unapplicable or not needed for most of guys around. Charity loses and hence gets tough!!? Disposal of clothes lends itself to a very comfortable charitable vocation. Most of us would have a hoarde of used clothes accumulating and don’t know what to do. Please look around for an old age home or any center for challenged.
I finally nudged by a roomie, Anand found a center, where visually challenged kids are taken care.
“Rukum school and Orphanage for blind — Indiranagar.”,
The center means business and you can as well donate clothes anonymously, just drop through counters cut in the walls.
Though my fantasy of crossing across Aishwarya was left unfulfilled, I felt good.
Finally, though they don’t have a net presence, they are simple to find just head straight Chinmaya mission in indiranagar and ask anybody.

I have nothing to write, this statement is a generalization which I make. I make this up to stop cursing myself for notblogging. Infact the truth is quite opposite.
So why did i say i have nothing to write, i am lying, i just lied that i had nothing to blog, i just wrote, coaxed myself to write these few lines, lies and my nirvana.
damm good lier I am. dammer bloggie me.

I call office this morning, half expecting a roit-oliday! Alas it was not to be so, the roit here in Bangalore is really localized, and it is just to be another manic monday.
— A lil bit of history —
This eid-ul-zuha, HD kumaraswamy doesn’t turn up at Roshan baig party. Roshan Baig resigns and this guy incidently has his huge cuts around shivajinagar and few month down the lane, roits hit a largly peaceful neighbourhood.
Domino effect, isn’t it.
P.S: there was a large scale voilance from the other side too
P.S.S: CK jaffer was the one who convayed, pardon me mr roshan. but i think it is still u

This blog springs from an conversation which I had with an old man. It is about the age old question, Guilt and consiousness. Everyone at some point in his life, has surely had his subconsious pook at him. It may about something which he did or about to do.
Say, the subject of this discussion allegorically is a theif, and my old uncle is sure that the theif would feel the guilty at some point in his life. Many of you agree would here. I wont, say it is Robin hood for theif or the murder, that psycopath of SAW for murderer, these guys after all the loot and gore they did, can go about the rest of their life of retirement in merriment and would enjoy as many creature comforts they can afford, wont they.
It may sound crazy, but many can repent on their good deeds as well as any Shakal or Diablo. If we deduce that the good deed had done more bad than good, or relatively the good has not been really good and had the good deed not been done it would have been good deed. Example you helped an old man cross the road and that jolly old fellow merrily steps into the arrack shop on the other side of the village highway or practically you did not return the 100 rupees which your freind lost and didn’t even know about that. DISK kid and those 100 could have been stolen money.
So I say repentance is instability of the human mind and consiousness only our alter-ego mocking at us, which may result in indigestion, disgression, sociopathy or saintliness. And all the scenarious though representing tangential behaviour equally likely.
But how to explain this ideas to a man, who is sixty and who is very likeable and whose modesty can sometimes crush your lucidity in its own vortex of catchwords and phrases ?
And I finally wriggle out, with this classic, can differ but still both be right.

It was amusing, the vien which commentators took in our recent loss against Australia. None said anything about the paucity of runs on board. The way Austalia was controlling the flow of that match. Even 350 didn’t seem outside their grasp. There was a verve in their gait as wodehouse might have put and dejection and despodancy was written largely over Indian time.
Cricket is a stage and players are not just performing, they dont seem to care for us, the Indian audiance. Contemptous I may add. So I say it is the time for the people to prevent the rot in the system. We the people who matter should take the the destiny of Indian team in our hands, why dont we sms or vote the cricket team to play.
I am not proposing complete control on the final playing eleven. BCCI can select a pool of 25 players out of which 16 would be selected via sms. The body which overseas this can be called CCI, a private venture company.
I would add the various ramfications later.

It has been long time sinse my last post. The reason for the long lull could have been deadth, but as I am turn up to post once more you can be assured that I am not dead and alive.
My deadth can be matter for a long analysis, for that matter anyones demise can be. We can talk of it later for now the time is for the planets deadth.
Is it deadth, can the planet die, it would just one day after the human species pisses it off really bad, stop sustaining us. We know this all dont we, global warming and the ozone layer. We would just go till the tipping point and turn around just before the moment mother earth is going to get really pissed, we would start acting good.
Thats exactly was what my plan was. I was watching all around the world and I am worried now, for the calculation on which are using to postpone our “good-boy” act may not be reliable. We are not taking everything into consideration.
There is something called methane which is locked into the siberain permafrost. Global warming is thawing the permaforst, which frees up more methane which in turns thaws even more perma. In Saudi Arabia, there is some sort of crust over the loose sands, the heavy american war machinary, which is roming that place, had broken in many places, and much of kuwait and saudi cities may be overrun by sands. And none here in the real world has “dragger of time/sand” to stop the loose sands.
The Earth it is seems is a very caprious lady, it is unleashing a sort of domino effect and if we dont get our act now. things would turn up really bad. Siberain permafrost and Saudi Arabian Sand crust are just some very visbile messing up of earth. There are some deeps rock cavities which uncle sam is using as oil reservoris. Then the dams and oil slicks, we are really pissing her of. Time for action.

Afzal Guru, convited in failed attack on parlament, enraged the State of India. Had he succeeded the situation right now would have been very complex. Terrorists rotinely barter their comrades for kidnapped civilians and relatives of people in power. And in this case with this many of our lawmakers hostage, JKLF/Mujahadeen’s would have a wanted nothing less than Jamhoori-e-Kashmir in return. Rich stuff for a subcontinetal potboiler. I will care not much.
But in hot news today is Rahul Mahajans foray into politics. He would bait for Afzal blood and with that blood purge his sins. So the question here is, what does the average R.M, our gali ka, non- cork snotting kinda guy think of Capital punishment. Does he bet Indias security scene would improve with few souls freed from the chains of life. I think he shouldn`t.
When I was a kid, i read this story of this some poor chinese guy who was wrongly accussed of being a traitor and executed. After his deadth his blood spread into some funny characters vindicating his innocence. It was at an illogical age that time, and was I then illogically against Death Penality.
Now I am aware that it takes more than 20 minutes for of pain for death to occur in case of hanging. People just dont die as fast as they do in movies. Death is painfull, the hanging way. Killing by any other way might be fast and sharp, you may sa. But you still wont convince why should somebody die.
Afzal did a very bad badish kind of thing, or maybe he was just smart. He used India as staging ground to wage a war against India. He being smart/heroic/baddish is just a same view from different points of referance. Snuffing his light out wont achieve anything. But this again is an entirely differnt picture which I wont want to explore now.
What I talk here, is my angst at Captail punishment and I sure the hangman would agree that it is wrong
