what a pity!!

AdSense on my blog is promoting Congress :(
To hell with the hand!!

Innocence lost !!

Yesterday I came across this article on Times of India. The link is

I am still wondering why the f**k do you need 6 years to prepare for JEE? When I was preparing for JEE, preparation from class 9 was rare, now its common. But from class 6 .. outrageous. Our education minister talks about a hell lot of things like quota / increasing the significance of school education, I would love to hear something from him on this issue.

I am thinking when this country will come out of the clutches of these greedy bastards who are killing innocence just to be rich. Can you imagine a class 6 /  7 student reading calculus n rotational motion? I was discussing with a few of my friends and we concluded may be a time will come soon "jab bachha maa ki kokh se nikale to papa bolen .. aaj FIITJEE ka test hai n kal Brilliant ka .. preparation start kar do" . One went overboard n said we should start preparing ourselves for our kids JEE.

Parents please think hundred time before killing ur child's bachpan!! They don't even know in the first place that they want to be engineer, forget about IIT. I first heard about IIT and JEE when my cousin cleared it, i was in class 7th. I came to know about the format of JEE etc when I had given my board exams and  was mulling over what to do. I took maths just bcoz I hated Bio. 

Think about the pressure now a days on children as well as on parents. For parents, one way or the other it has become a status symbol (I agree it was earlier as well, in our times, but the divide between IITian n non IITian was not this wide). I guess every1 will agree that most of us have heard a hundred time from out mom n dad .. how Mr. X's son / daugter is doing so good in academics and u r gud for nthin. Those endless comparisons, when u didn't even had a shot at the goal used to bug a lot. Sports / extra currics where taken as good for nothing stuff (this conception changed when I joined IITD, still the part of the country I belong to academics is the only thing you work on).

In these times I can simply pity on those innocent children. I will thank god that I was not born 10 - 15 years later!! This kind of sucking exercise will simply kill the creativity. I will request all parents to think on these few points before pushing ur sweet little kid on this mental torchure:
  1. Do they need a coaching institute before Class 11?
  2. Is starting for JEE before your class 10 board actually needed at all?
  3. Every career counsellor is son of a b***ch, do you need their advice?
  4. Do coaching institutes and schools prioritize on ur child or their revenues?
  5. Stop doing what every1 else is going.
  6. You are the best person to judge your child
  7. Being an IITian is not end of the world!!
  8. Don't compare your them with anyone else .. under pressure they are bound to crack
  9. All decisions you take before the kid is mature enough, can make or break their lives
  10. Do your homework first .. 
Oooh .. that was 10 tips on good parenting!! Enough for the day!!

UPA ki maa ka ..

Was crossing the "Safdarjung Flyover" a few days back .. saw election poster from congress party. Can u beat this - 3 people standing in the poster, 1st for sure Sonia Gandhi followed by Rahul and then our poor PM Mr. Manmohan Singh. I felt ashamed, is this the country I am living in? This is absolutely mockery of democracy!! Our PM is just a pawn, nothing else. The ruling coalition's poster should have Mr. Singh first any day man!!

The UPA calls itself secular!! wtf !! are they really? who was behind the 1984 sikh riots? who is using extremists for their election campaign, they guy who issued Rs 25 crore fatwa for uncle sam? they can use any venom in their election speech and when Varun Gandhi speak .. inki g***d fat jati hai !! 

kahe ka secular or kahe ka communal .. all i want is no hatred .. no terror .. Today I think twice whenever I go out to a crowded place, I feel scared whenever shweta is driving alone, I feel scared for my parents in Patna when people around know about my job. I can not take it anymore. I will vote!! I want to end this spineless government which can't ensure security. The best thing that has happened to Indian Cricket IPL is now shifted to SA, when I was planning to watch all Delhi matches. bullshit .. accept you guys have been failures enriching your coffers n forgetting about common man and there security. I wish a few MP's were at Taj n Trident. 

Another thing is the new coalitions forming everyday. Heard Lalu, Mulayam n Ramvilas are against congress now. My viewpoint is this is just a propaganda to cut so called forward votes from the NDA. I am no racist and please don't think otherwise. But these guys are assured of the cast based votes because of their mass appeal. Congress has no existence in UP n Bihar, if it goes all alone it will cut even if by slight percentage, the votes of BJP n JDU. After elections, anyways they are going to combine. And I just pray Miss Mayawati / Lalu / Mulayam are not out next PM. Think about them representing India in UN Assembly at NYC

All I want is Narendra Modi to be our next PM!! anyone in?

Guys .. think what might happen if u don't vote .. do you want to live in the country where these guys are making mockery of democracy? 

PS: Yaad aaya .. guys go and watch "Gulaal" to learn more about democracy. The best movie I have seen in recent times, by far!!

"Nothing" is possible

I have never been so berozgaar!! People say nothing is impossible but I know its possible .. I am doing it since last November apart from a month when I was on training. All thanks (touch wood) to global financial crisis, although layoff may be still on the horizon!! Just have a look at my daily routine:
07 30: wake up n read newspapers
08 30: go upstairs, wake up shweta, have breakfast
09 00: drop her to office
10 00: come back and n think about today's agenda, check all my e-mail accounts and social networking sites, snoop into every1's profile, check for sports updates on soccer / cricket / F1 / tennis on skysports / espnstar .. literally checking all updates .. :)
12 30: meal, music on Bose dock ... 
01 00: itunes n music files update
01 30: matinee movie time :D
04 30: check for updates on gmail/ FB/ orkut/ linkedin .. small nap after that
06 00: take bath, start for shweta's office
07 30: wait outside doing absoulutely nothing by the time she is free, when she comes out plan for the evening :D
08 00: meeting friends / shopping / dinner / saas bahu serials
11 30: think about what significant thing i did today .. 
12 00: time to sleep

I bet, how many of you can do this. If this is not doing nothing what is it?
