Nothing much to say. Congrats India for another achievement in maintaining law and order.
Keep up the great work and make this country a HELL.
I got one forwarded mail. Its worth reading in the present scenario:
Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for Rs10. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at Rs10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at Rs20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to Rs25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at Rs50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at Rs35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for Rs50.” The villagers squeezed up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys. Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!!!
Welcome to the “Stock” Market!!!!! 😉
Well, i watched Hello today and WHAT A WASTE…i mean what a waste. It was a pretty nice story (except that God calling thing) and man they screwed it up like anything. No acting, no direction, no flow and what not. Its like hell to pass the 2 hours. It could have been a really good movie but man they just wasted it like anything. Bad…too bad.
While surfing i came across an old (of 2007) piece of news in a newspaper which is worth mentioning. Especially today when we are lost in the darkness of terrorism, riots and violence. Its the story of a girl that how her fate played games with her but finally after 24 years she was able to find her father again. God does wonders ! The most touching emotion is when she said:
But memories of her father continued to haunt her — of how he had doted on her, carrying her on his shoulders to school on rainy days so she didn’t dirty her feet.
And then she got separated from her father 🙁 . Read the whole story here.
A wonderful ghazal sung by Jagjit Singh Zirvi (Not to be confused with Jagjit Singh, the ghazal singer). It is written by Shakeel Badayuni. You can listen to it on pz10.
sukoon e dil ke liye
kuch to ehtimaam karoon
zara nazar to mile
fir unhe salaam karoon
(ehtimaam – planning)
mujhe to hosh nahi
aap mashwara deeje
kahan se chedoon fasana
kahan tamaam karoon
(mashwara – advice)
uhni ke zulam ka shikwa karoon zamane se
unhi ke haq main duaein main subah shaam karoon
woh bewafa hain to ham ne ‘Shakeel’ soch liya
mujhe kasam hai kisi se agar kalaam karoon
