Read them as they're written,with pause after each and every line.

There is,
so beautiful,
no vision,
no pallete,
neither so spontaneous,
none so vast,
yet so deep,
as I met,
and I was,
yet again.

Plastic dreams

plastic bag par ban!
plastic bag par ban!

janta ne kaha haan?to haan!
isse kehte hain democracy...
what an idea sirjee?

Will this dream ever come true?

The reason we are not moving towards a completely plastic free society,even despite the fact that they have been banned in New Delhi,is:

fairly simple.
The consumer wants convenience!

Tell me,you are coming back from your office,and want to pick up some supplies of grocery from a local store.You are tired of nagging from your boss and fed up of the traffic.

Would you,at that critical point of time,care to get a jute bag from your place?
Its not convenient.neither is it a total substitute for plastic.It starts stinking after a few days,is not completely water proof,is not stretchable and neither is it light.

Then why should you switch over?

yes yes,,environment and all blah blah...but where's the convenience?

Throughout history,we've seen,if people had better alternatives which had a lower cost,some extra ease,or even same features,but more convenience,every body shifted.

Take the case of cassette tapes?People found cd's better and cheaper and more data storing,so..they shifted..and then to dvds and now..to blue ray discs...

In case of plastic,there's no such substitute.
Or maybe there is..something called PHB.

But then,no body's looking at it.

No body promotes industries producing PHBs,no body wants to market them,no body wants to get then delivered to the end users,no body wants to subsidize them..
and the same nobody...wants a blanket ban on plastics!

If you're a person who can make a difference,find or make people find a real substitute,a convenient substitute for non biodegradable plastic.

Some this that has all the same qualities of a plastic bag,yet is bio degraable and can completely replace plastic in every form.
or atleast some.

tab tak...naare baazi jaari rakho?

Oye!bakwass band kar!

Mazza aaya!
phir se!

Something amazing happened.I was replying to a mssg from a friend,who had sent a forward,I didn't like much.
So i replied:oye!bakwass band kar!

and accidentally,sent it to her mother.

Through out the evening I had a gaala time in hiding my identity from her mother,while at the same time messaging her to placate her mother when she reaches back home.

And thus was born a new way of teasing!
So,sent up a couple of messages to people,saying the same thing...oye!bakwass band kar.

When they replied,what bakwass?
Reply:"what bakwass?"ye bakwass.
they say:"bhang khayee hai kya?"
reply:"what bakwass?","bhang khayee hai kya?"ye bakwass!

and go on!!
mast bidooo!

Best wishes for a journey...

Kuch aur na sahi to,waapas aane ke bahaane lete jao??"

Aise hi bas suddenly...

Gifat lelo....

you like receiving gifts?

who doesn't?But they say that there's never a free lunch.

Okay,lets do this activity.Chose any mundane activity,that anybody around does for you.Chose any one,like drive you to the college,or wash your clothes,cook food for you,or give you water when you come back tired.

Any activity.
The question is...Why do they do it??

Deep introspection,lots of days,grumpy mood swings later,the answer that I got was..because they love you.

There can't be any other reason.
Why does you mom do all this stuff?Why at all does your friend invite you to his home for lunch?

It may not be that direct,but in a way,in some form,they love you.

So doesn't that love need a reciprocation?
Haan haan,they say that love needs to be selfless,but who doesn't like receiving an unexpected gift?
But if everyone expects a gift,then who shall give?

You dude!you shall give!
You have to pay in love.

It may be difficult to start,but if you really want to appreciate,do it now!
Whenever you go to anybody's place,uncle,aunt's even drivers,remember that you're going and they are receiving you,giving you their time.

So,never go empty handed to anyone's place!

Don't be a shopaholic and go on buying random stuff,

but stuff like a box of orbit chewing gum,
or a cd track you heard,
or a small sheet of paper with cute little baby drawings on them,

or a book you liked n wudn't mind lending
or even a pack of uncooked maggi,which you take along and order them to cook,would be able to repay the debt that you owe them!

Never go empty handed!(but neither so full that they're bound to give you return gifts)

and the best part is...many of you,unknowingly,have been doing this,for long!

When you are tired and sleeping..
almost into that unknown dreamland that you go into,after you close your eyes..
just when you are about to doze off...
ask yourself,honestly about the day...

What next?
(got a new digicam,threw away the old film based camera,and before that had thrown away the black and whit one,so..what shall be the next technology?)

ask your self...What next?
(had great fun today,enjoyed the rides,but what next?)

and the other question..
Is this the final thing?
Is this all?
Would this permanently remain?
Would still,something,me,you,death,take it away?

and then...when you find your ego expounding and taking you for a ride,your self becoming too much to handle..

ask yourself..

"aaj phir bistar geela karne ka plan hai?"
(would you wet the bed,tonight,again?)

Heard it many times,many times before that in everything you do,think about creating something new(that rhymes,doesn't it?)?

So then,as per this ancient prophecy of doing everything in a new way,lets ask ourselves,what new thing needs to be be done?

In view of the recent attacks and protest in Kashmir and Australia,isn't there a need to protest in a new way?

By now,the so called standard way of protests include,candle light marches,dharnas,rallies,petitions etc,which stood the test of history and have..a proven track record.

Then,I ask,is there a new way to protest?

Mmmmmmmyeeeeaaas...We Indians haven't tried the way what the Japanese do.They protest creatively,constructively.All our protests are,to say generally,destructive.

We burn candles,at places which already have lights,we stop the roads for a rally,stop our work for higher wages.
All of them,if not reduce some resource,also don't increase some other.

Accha yaar,round round jaane ke baje,the point is,lets protest constructively.

For wages,lets over work,so that the company suffers losses not due to our damage of property,but due to extra unsold products.

To show solidarity for someone killed,get your heads shaved off.

To show your anger for not enough schools,teach some children.

To show solidarity for the malnutrition,fast?So that the extra food saved,would finally be given to them.

No no no no...I don't say that,other ways are impractical or useless.They're all ways of showing strength,a show that you care.

The need is to combine the both.

What say a protest march showing that you're angered about lack of schools,ending in a MCD school where you then teach for 1 hour?

Or a candle light march which buys candles from a blind school,and then donates any collected donations to the same school?

Awareness to inti hai,par kaam kaun kare!!

Bole to bidu,munna bhai aayi..aur gaayi...par apan lesson bhool re hain.


(Btw,I'll be fasting this 26/11 as a show of solidarity for the Mumbai terror attach victims.Join in?

Then why are you killing your happiness?

Oye lucky,when u're working to create happiness,then how can you do so,by ur self remaining sad?dasso?

Certificates,trophies,medals...et al..

At our age,parents are nothing more than genies.You ask them,request them for something
and they give you that,some times sooner,sometimes later.

Then what else,you ask,you need?Still why is this,emptiness,after having almost

Applause,gifts,trophies,certificates,sweet talk,favorite food,swanky car,good
clothes,everything you got as a gesture of appreciation on some occasion or if you got
them just like that,still,you ask,why this emptiness?

A foreign trip,cooked and warm food when you return late night,a phone recharge whenever
you want,still you ask what is missing?

Apart from all these gestures,all these little things of appreciation,if one really needs
to appreciate,really cares...then..a touch....

A touch is missing.A hug,a peck,a cuddle.A random nose pull,or an ear doggle,a pinch or a
light slap...that's what is missing.

If you really want to appreciate someone,really care,then everything,is secondary,comes
after wards,is dispensable,but a hug.

You shall find children who can live without yummy food,without cars and AC and big TVs
and faster computers,but it shall be hard to find a child who is living without a hug.

Or maybe,it isn't so hard.For most of us have been,living in such a manner,or
rather..dying,murdering ourselves,the child in us,in such a manner.

No other questions.Just ask,when was the last time you hugged your father?

And to start this of,now,is still all the more difficult.But you have to make a
start,start from a handshake or a feet touch daily to a cuddle or a arm hug,and then you
may gradually move on.

Meeting an old friend,after a long time but don't know how to break ice?Hug!
Too busy for family,even though you want to steal away your time for them?hug!
Too busy to talk,but want to give respect,grattitude,appreciation?hug!

The warmth of this hug is enough to break any ice,no matter how solid!

And for the ladies,it might sound a little odd,a little awkward to start hugging.But one
may startoff with the female friends,and give the males a arm hug?The warmth shall
dissolve all awkwardness!

Those on stage,giving a prize,appreciating someone,if with a deep desire to do so,please hug!

You'll have to start off somewhere...

Or else,we'll be stuck there.Machines asking genies for prizes.

Lost it?

Think you've lost it too?
your baccha pan?

This song reminded me of the same thing...
(download from http://beemp3.com/download.php?file=4793451&song=Garaj+Baras+-+ApnaMela.Com+-)

Artist: Jagjit Singh
Album: In Sight

garaj baras pyaasii dhartii par phir paanii de maulaa
chiDiyon ko daanaa, bachchon ko guDadhaanii de maulaa

do aur do kaa jod hameshaa chaar kahaan hotaa hai
soch samajhavaalon ko thodii naadaanii de maulaa

(the sum of 2 and 2 is not always 4,give some randomness to the intelligent)

phir roshan kar zahar kaa pyaalaa chamakaa naii saliiben
jhuuThon kii duniyaa men sach ko taabaanii de maulaa

[saliiben=Christian cross; taabaanii brightness]

phir muurat se baahar aakar chaaron or bikhar jaa
phir mandir ko koii miiraa diivaanii de maulaa

tere hote koii kisii kii jaan kaa dushman kyon ho
jiinevaalon ko marane kii aasaanii de maulaa

get the concepts right!

This happened in anoopshehar where we were invited to teach 10th class students for a week.

In one of the classes,we just randomly asked..What do you want to become when you grow up?
There were numerous responses...engineers,doctors,teachers...

The most common one was..that of an engineer..

So,I asked one of the weak students,why don't you want to become an engineer?
And he replied:

"guruji,jab sab engineer banjayenge,to bora kaun dhoyego?"
(if everyone becomes an engineer,then who'll carry the sacks?)

The last semester

Oh,there you are...

Certain questions which have boggled my mind almost the whole of the last semester,(this i may site as a reason for my poor grades),but I hope you understand the answers are not so easily found...

Pardon me from being ingratitude filled,but

why are you living?
I think anyone from my college or he industry,reading this now on an iMac of a desktop,has enough money to sustain him,comfortably,for almost the rest of his life?

Then,what are you working for??
Naaah,too lame,what are you living for?

Nobody will give you a reply,which shall satisfy you,until you fray your nerves and think over it.

Most people cite,for others,for society,for welfare..
When you die,will these activities cease to exist?
When you die,the world stops?
When you die,all misery shall be overcome,since you've done so much good?

bolo bolo?

bidu,apun ki to lag gayee in sawaalon se....and I've found some replies..
When you ask these questions forcefully and 'dil-se',the replies shall seacrh for you....(too filmy,eh?)
