Happy Halloween Day everyone.
By the way, today's there's also the DEATH ANNIVERSARY Indira Gandhi. 1984 anti-Sikh riots, well everyone(almost) knows what they were and there has been a lot of big debates on the topic "who all were guilty?" but no-one ever came up with any answer. The reason for that is these type of incidents are never the result of the errors by
just one person, its always that multiple sides are responsible for
contributing to it. This reminds me of a saying: ताली कभी एक हाथ से नही बजती ।
translates as: A clap is never made with just one hand.
So who were the different sides that different people say were guilty? Whether the guilty side was government under Indira Gandhi who ordered the attack on Harmandir Sahib, Amritsar?
or Was it sikh militant group under Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale who hid inside the Harmandir Sahib, Amritsar although being heavily armed?
or Was it the sikh bodyguards who shot Indira Gandhi after she almost completely destroyed…
Whenever I go for dinner with anyone for the first time, the first question that always confronts me: "How can you, although being a Sardar, be a Vegetarian?"
And I reply, "Why can't I be?"
and for those who say, Guru Gobind Singh, our 10th Guru also had non-veg, then for that I'd like to quote, he was stuck in middle of the war and his army was deprived of any food, so he had to feed them to keep his army alive.
Well, that's the story which keeps on happening every few days. So lets ignore that for now.
Anyways, totally by chance, I came across some of the videos in the last couple of weeks that I was tempted to share them with you and believe me, after seeing this video (from where I took the title for the post), you'll definitely think about whether you should eat non-veg or not.
Well, for those who ignored the video(for whatever reasons), few things I'd like to quote from the video: Modern meat production is responsible for outbreak of Mad…
Its now a very famous saying, especially among Sikhs:
ਚਿੜਿਆ ਤੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਬਾਜ਼ ਲੜਾਂਊਂ ,
ਗਿਦਰਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ੇਰ ਬਨਾਊਂ ।
ਸਵਾ-ਲਾਖ ਸੇ ਏਕ ਲੜਾਊਂ ,
ਤਬ੍ਹੇ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਨਾਮ ਕਹਾਊਂ ।।
(Translates to: "I make Sparrows fight Hawks,I mold Jackal into Lions.I make one fight against 125,000,Then only his name will be 'Gobind Singh'. ")
But, everyone says, before giving lecture or any teaching to anyone, one has to prove that by doing himself and Guru Gobind Singh proved it.
On 21st December 1704, the tenth guru of Sikhs, Sri Guru Gobind Singh, along with his 2 teenage sons(18 and 14 years old), Panj Pyare(best translated to "five beloved ones") and 40 Sikhs, got attacked by an army of around 1 million mughals headed by Wazir Khan at Chamkaur(a district in Punjab). Well you can estimate the fear of Wazir Khan towards Guruji, just by the number of soldiers he took just to capt…
2nd October, everyone remembers as M.K. Gandhi's birthday, but no one remembers Shastri ji's birthday. For Gandhi, there is spelling correction by Google, but nothing for Shastri ji. Disclaimer: If you don't want to read evil facts about "FATHER OF NATION", then don't go further or if you don't want to read it as its his birthday today, then visit this link tomorrow.
Well, yes, I don't like to add words like "Mahatma" or "Ji" with the name of "Gandhi". I was luckily always against the morals and standards set by him. Why...??? Well, because I don't believe in a person who acts as angel to the society and acts devil to his family. There are many such instances in the history which have been quoted which proves the things I said about his character.
Lets start with the topic of the person who was responsible to bring him on this planet, the father of our so-called "Fathe…
George Washington Carver, an American scientist, botanist, educator and inventor from the late 19th century and early 20th century, once said: "Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."
Obviously, education, if delivered properly, then it will lead you on the right path and help you succeed in life, even when you're free to do anything, you'll have the power to judge the right path. In brief, if "proper education" is given in a proper way, it will lead to success, else GOD knows.
Many understood it and used it wisely and selflessly. Some of them even helped others through this and now we call those people as "Social Reformers".
But many misunderstood it or you can say over-understood it. Those who over-understood it, took it literally and started building "golden" doors for themselves, even if they have to destroy anything on the way. And now we know them as "Politicians".
Anyways, according to an old saying…

Its almost the end of the day and surprisingly it was one of the best days. Don't worry, nothing interesting happened with me. The best days because there wasn't any news of rape or extortion against women in any news website(atleast I didn't found). What can be the possible reason...Rakhi...??? Maybe, yes. Rakshabandhan"The day when you don't find those guys roaming out who're seen out every day & night stalking & whistling at girls." Today, this was the status on my twitter in the morning. And now, when I was totally free, well you can't be free if you're in my college, so in other words, I was not in a mood to do anything. So I drew this for this special day:
Click on the image for larger view PS: Well, to sum up, Happy Rakshabandhan to all the brothers and sisters around and also to my dear sister. And special thanks to Rakshabandhan. If this is really the reason, then I wish, those sick minded people learn to celebrate this day daily. . . cya…
Kid 1: My dad is strongest.
Kid 2: No, my dad is strongest.
And then the fight starts and finally parents had to get involved to take their kids back.
1)Dad = Superman:
That's how kid's in 90's used to think, most of the time it was one of the most common way how the fight starts among the kids of 90's.
Last week I got a package from Flipkart and in which I found the product wrapped in bubble sheet with which I played till the time all the bubbles were flattened and that reminded me of
2) Bubble Sheet = Bomb:
How we (kid's of 90's) used to play with things which were used by our parents for completely different purpose. Just felt nostalgic, so I started making a note of what all those things we did and then today I did this all this... :D
3) Umbrella = Gun:
4) Hallway and walls = Canvas:
I bet, every single child has sometimes or the other has scribbled on walls of his/her house. I confes…
Obviously I won't deny that technology advancement is good. But sometimes, some of the advancements appears to be useless(at least to me).
Well, not much good examples striking my mind right now, except for this one(for which I'm here right now)...!!!
But before everything, just one question... How much would you like to spend to dispose off your SH*T...???
For a house...few dollars maybe...That too per month...that's it...???
For a company, okay I'll leave it, I know everyone won't like to discuss it...
But obviously not more than that...(hopefully)...
Well, I don't want to get this post too much dirty by discussing about the shit, but here I present you the $6400 toilet
or some of you would like to call it A Royal Flush to flush your SH*T
PS: Leave the discussion apart...But tell me seriously, would you seriously spend so much just to dispose off your SHIT...??? Free Advice:
If end result doesn't matter to you(not everywhere, just for this case)Then instead…
Hindi: राम नाम सत्य है | English Transliteration: Raam Naam Satya Hai. English Translation: God Name is the only Truth.
Whats wrong in reciting this chant in our normal life?
Ask this question to someone who is not familiar with Indian culture, he won't have any problem with that.
The reason I asked you to ask this question to someone who is not familiar with our Indian culture is that, our Indian mindset has been made to settle on the belief that "Raam Naam Satya Hai" is only supposed to be said at the time of death only, so we might not be able to get an unbiased decision. It has become a belief that if you hear this chant, then there has been a death nearby and normally no one is allowed to recite it.
Watch this small video "Raam Naam Satya Hai" (6 minute and 22 second) by the group HamaraMovie in which a 11 year old kid is punished for reciting the same chant. It w…
"It started with the best in the world and if not stopped now, then it might lead to worst in the world"
I don't want it to be true, but it seems that it will be true soon.
Lets see how what is leading the one which used to be the best towards its worst end: "Indian education system used to be the best thousand's of years ago. For many centuries, before the time when human learned to make an account and write down things, all the vedas, upanishads, puranas, etc. continued their journey from generations to generation as word-of-mouth. Till that time there was no education system which can compete with ours. Then slowly-slowly, as we progressed, we realized that there are many sections of society which are divided on the basis of caste and culture which lead to ill-treatment of many of them. So instead of eliminating such stupid caste system, we thought, if we remove this diverse cultures, then India will loose one of its most important attractions which we now call…
If anyone of you would have asked me that will I be writing any essay in the future and if yes, then when...??? Then I'd would have said, Not in the near future because I won't be appearing in any IAS or similar exams, but yeahh I'll be writing it someday, maybe helping out my kids in the school(well that's too long term planning, so ignore).
But, exactly 1 year and 3 days ago, I landed up in IIIT-Bangalore, for M.Tech. and exactly 3 days ago, I was given an assignment(actually everyone was given, not only me) to write an essay on one of these topics: 1) A scene in an exam hall (I don't like writing about tragic incidents, so ignored it) 2) Value of discipline in Student Life (Discipline and Student Life, I thought they are antonyms, again ignored) 3) Convocation Day (No experience yet...so one more down) 4) A midnight Adventure (After joining IIIT-B, whole life has become an adventure, so it wouldn't have been any justice to write about one and ignore other) 5) Ar…
Disclaimer: For the art lovers, especially Joan Miro's lovers...This post has no intention to insult Joan Miro or his works...Don't get enraged after reading this, I've done such things earlier... B-)
You must have heard that engineer's are bad at general knowledge, not all, but many are. Today I again realized that I'm also one of them(obviously the one with bad G.K.) :P
Anyways, Better late, than never...So finally, today I came across this news, and realized that someday, I can also be Joan Miro. Even any of you can be. Sounds good, isn't it...??? Thanks...
Joan Miro's "Etoile Bleue" image courtesy: Google
Frankly Speaking, I was shocked to see that this painting by Joan Miro was worth 37 million dollars.
So, here's the easiest way to be a Million Dollar Baby: "Preserve the paintings accidentally made by your infants. They might earn your family a fortune after few years."
PS: If this post has enraged you, then read the disclaimer…
Some talents die unheard, unexposed...without getting the justice they deserve...But some reach their proper and deserved destiny. And if "few" of those "some" get a right platform since the beginning, then I call it a cherry on the cake.
Here is an example of one among those "few"...totally bless by HIS grace...
One of the best Punjabi folks I've ever heard. Superbly sung by Satinder.
PS: Believe me...At least I've never heard anything better than this...
PS: Satinder was a contestant in "Chhote Ustaad" program of Star Plus in the year 2010.
Yeahh, I know its an abusive title to the post(for those who understand "GHANTA"), but for others, who don't understand it, it is used as for showing our "Denial" towards something, that's it for now.
Anyways, lets come back to the post. One good thing about the Indian Education System is that they helps us, obviously not with our education, but yes, in understand that we're here for the betterment of ourselves and our family and not of our nation. Apart from that, one thing it guarantees you that if by chance you think of doing good to your society, they won't let you do that. So, no matter what they say against "Brain Drain", but they do convince you to go abroad, and have a bright future. They ensure that you don't get yourself screwed in India.
Now, I guess you be thinking that why I said they won't favor us in education? For the reply, I'd ask you a question, Do they? They don't. If and only if you want to have PhD. i…
Getting involved in discussions is good. I appreciate this, especially for a person like me(people who know me knows the reason). But for a person like me to get involved in any type of discussion with an stranger is rarest of the rarest phenomenon.
Anyways, if I keep aside the discussion part, sometimes some small single statements by you leave me thinking about them. (At least that sometimes happens with me).
While me and RD(the fellow passenger) were were having a talk, I said a quote which I tweeted some days back...
" There are 2 futures:The future of desire, and the future of fates& the man's reason has never learnt to separate them.-J.D.Bernal "
and later when I gave a thought on it, I was left wondering that how much do I actually fit it...???
Everyone wants the future of his/her desire, but the question is how many actually get it...???
I want something from my desire, but one which appears to be coming is something which appears to be coming from fate.
Indiblogger and BreakThrough organized a Blogger's meet in Bangalore on 28th April, 2013. Initially I thought its going to end up like any normal blogger's meet. I'm calling other meets as normal because this meet made them look normal in front of them. The moto of the meet was to "Ring The Bell" to spread awareness to treat women with respect.
It started at around 11:30 am and ended up at 2 pm. It started as it was supposed to. Issues were raised one by one(some by organizers and some by bloggers who attended the meet) and then everyone started putting up their views on it. Frankly Speaking, I thought that if not a regular meet then either it might turn up a boring one or it might lead to some heated discussions. But nothing such happened. Although the event was focused at "Treat Women With Respect" but I would like to deviate from the topic a little bit. Its not that I don't care about the respect of any woman in the society. I do care and I'm a…
