1984 anti-Sikh riots: Who was GUILTY...???

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?

  • Was it the sikh bodyguards who shot Indira Gandhi after she almost completely destroyed the holiest shrine of sikhs?
  • Was it some renowned personalities who provoked mob against sikhs, which later became one of the biggest riots in the history of India?
(Hopefully I've didn't forget any eligible candidate)


Well, so lets start with whatever happened in a very brief manner and chronological order and then get to the debate of who's guilty and who's not?
  • Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who was accused of killing many prominent people like Gurbachan Singh, who was third guru of Nirankari Sect and A.S. Atwal, the Punjab Police Deputy Inspector General, went and hid inside Harmandir Sahib, Amritsar and brought machine guns and other deadly weapons in the compund.
  • Operation Blue Star was proposed by Indira Gandhi to eliminate Bhindranwale. She asked this operation to be executed under the Lt. Gen S.K. Sinha, who was supposed to be promoted as the Chief of Army for the same reason, but he refused to take any such step considering its sacrilegious nature. As a result, a controversial decision was taken and Sinha's promotion was stopped and General Arun Shridhar Vaidya replaced him as chief of army.
  • Then, the operation was planned and executed. It basically started on 1st June 1984 when CRPF open fired "Guru Ram Dam Langar" building.
  • By 7th June 1984, 6 days after the attack started, army gained effective control over the Harmandir Sahib Gurudwara compound.
  • By 10th June 1984, entire operation was completed by army.

The completion of the Operation Blue Star, resulted in:
  • Death of Bhindranwale and his accomplices,
  • Destruction of Gurudwara and other surrounding buildings,
  • 700+ soldiers died,
  • 500+ civilians died,
  • 5000 Sikh soldiers mutinied all over India,
  • Then Prime Minister, INDIRA GANDHI got assassinated by her two Sikh bodyguards(Satwant Singh and Beant Singh),
  • Both of them dropped their weapons and surrendered, but then Beant Singh was taken in closed room and shot dead.
  • All India anit-Sikh riots were started and more than 3000 sikhs were killed,
  • Satwant Singh and Keher Singh(the third conspirator) were hanged in Tihar Jail.  

From here on, these are completely my views, if you want, then read, but don't get offended if you are a "Indira Gandhi Follower"

 Lets start with a few questions...
  • There came no support from the public when sikh mutinied for the destruction of their holy shrine, but just when indira gandhi got assassinated, nation level riots started, doesn't this sound more like a political stunt...???
  • Both the bodyguards dropped their weapons and surrendered themselves, then why was one of them(Beant Singh) taken to a closed room and shot dead...???
  • Just because Lt. Gen S.K. Sinha refused to attack on Harmandir Sahib, his promotion was stopped. Why...???
  • The holiest shrine of someone's is being destroyed and due to this when few soldiers refuse to work in protest(instead of revolt), a strict action was taken against them. Why...???
  • How does a small militant group gain so much power that whole army has to be called to control them...??? Well the answer lies in the same example like the when US helped Afghanistan build bunkers and attack USSR but later Bin-Laden and group took shelter in the same bunkers only and made the life of US a living HELL. In this case, government helped the same militant group to grow, and result you all know. At this point I'd like to quote:
    The consequences of a Big Mistake keep coming in small installments...!!!
    (I missed the above point, but was quoted by Inderdeep in the comment and I'm adding it now)
  • One question in bold:
Why no action was taken against prominent and renowned personalities, who instead of taking major steps to calm down the public, helped the riots with outrageous speeches in public...???

Obviously, the mistakes were there on the part Bhindranwale, who entered the holy place with weapons. But who'll answer the above questions...??? Who'll take the responsibilities for the same...???

When government says, that on the name of terrorist, Muslim community people should not be hurt, then why does justice hasn't been brought to the Sikh families who are still suffering because that day their family members were butchered even who were not part of Bhindranwale group...???


Anyways, as I mentioned in the beginning, such debates are never ending. The real reason why I brought this topic was because I wanted to send a message to Sikhs:

Till the time we keep conspiring among ourselves,
how can we expect other communities to support ourselves...???

Well, how and when, then its a long list. There has always been disputes between Gurudwara committee's of different regions over few issues. Most of the things were not questioned to SGPC, but most of the things were left without explanation also by SGPC, like few years back why the use of Nanak-shahi calendar was stopped suddenly...??? No-one knows the answer. What everyone knows is, it was done.

Recently, a plea was put forward to Akal Takht that thousands of Sikhs were killed in riots on 3rd Novemeber, 1984, so atleast for once, we can celebrate a cracker-less Diwali on their name. Sounds like a reasonable request, but was immediately refused. I don't know whether the reason was that the plea was made by the sister of Balwant Singh Rajoana, Kamaldeep Kaur, who was facing death sentence in the assassination case of former Punjab Chief Minister, Beant Singh or something else.

PS: Hope the last 3 paragraph's of this post reaches the right minds. And atleast a 2 minute silence for the innocent people who died that day in the riots.

PPS: Feel free to share your views.


Tuesday, October 22, 2013


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-Cow disease, SARS, Bird Flu, and many other diseases. Also animal products are contaminated with Campylobacter, Salmonella, E-Coli. The one thing which I heard long back when I was a kid, most probably from my father only,

मांस खाए, मांस बढ़े।
घी खाए खोपड़ी ॥ 

Translated as:
"If you eat Flesh, your Flesh will increase.
If you eat Ghee, your Brain will increase."

was also quoted in the video, (not in the same words obviously), that consumption of non-veg is accompanied mainly with fat and cholesterol, is also a prime contributor to today's epidemics of obesity, heart disease, and cancer. Studies show that vegetarians are less prone to all of these diseases.

(Now, specifically for those non-vegetarians who talk boldly in campaigns and other places about saving the world, saving the animal species which are on the verge of extinction and global warming, etc., etc., etc...)

According to United Nations scientists, eating meat is one of the top contributors for:
1) Land Degradation, 
2) Water Shortages, and
3) Air and Water Pollution.

Also, researches say that soon, maybe in a couple of decades, the rate at which fishes are being consumed, the oceans will be empty of fish by 2048.

Obviously, by now many will start saying that they only eat chicken. Then it was in the previous video also, and now one more:

I don't have any personal revenge with meat eaters, but once again, I'd like to share what I shared long back:

For egg eaters, if you're against foeticide, then think about it:


Anyways, one more interesting fact, do you know how appendix became non-functional in human body?
Well, its because, soon after humans started relying more on diet rich in foliage, appendix in the due course of time, became non-functional and by eating meat, you're just putting pressure on your body which is not designed to eat that. For detailed version, read "Charles Darwin's Origin of Species and the Foundation of The Origin of Species" and corresponding researches and articles.


Now many of you might be thinking, What category do I belong to? Obviously that's justified, if you've read the post, then I've given you long lecture on why to be a "Vegetarian".

"Okay, so I used to have non-veg few years back(I guess 3 and half years back). But then once I stayed at my cousin's place and every other day they used to serve non-veg in at least one of the meals. So that's when I decided, that's it...Its too much and that was the last time I ate any type of non-veg food. Well, I was never fond of eggs anytime and rarely used to have them but few months after I left non-veg, I permanently stopped the egg thing also. That's because also alongwith the disliking, once one of my friend asked me, "Dude, You say you're a vegetarian, then where do eggs come from, or where do they lead to?". So, few months after that, it was all over. :D 

Well, frankly I never had any problems after I left any of those. Actually, I used to be under weight when I was a non-vegetarian, but soon after becoming vegetarian, I started eating paneer and other dairy products and now I'm normal, (well in fact have gained a little bit of tummy also :P)"


PS: Thanks for your patience and reading it(if you did, else just "thanks for the visit"). I'm not forcing anyone for any thing, was just putting up few facts, which many of you might have missed, or ignored it till now. ;)
If you're even a little bit motivated towards becoming a Vegetarian or Vegan, then watch this video and get inspired by this kid:

PPS: Hope we soon get alternative for stopping the cruelty done to get produce milk from animals.

"Khalsa" Akaal Purakh ki Fauj...!!!

Its now a very famous saying, especially among Sikhs:

ਚਿੜਿਆ ਤੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਬਾਜ਼ ਲੜਾਂਊਂ ,
ਗਿਦਰਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ੇਰ ਬਨਾ
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 capture Guruji and his 40 Sikhs.

If I'm not wrong, then result as many of you might think is that the handful of Sikh army would have lost, isn't it? But the scene was something different. Out of those so called "handful of Sikh army" proved themselves to be worth a million and only 42 Sikhs were able to receive the honor of being called a martyr (which included both his sons), rest, including Guriji, survived. However, how many mughal soldiers died during the same battle, is still an unknown figure. For detailed account of the event, click here.


Some similar event took place approximately 200 years later, on 12th September 1897, at Saragarhi District, a part of North-West Frontier Province (now in Pakistan) where the story was repeated. This time it was without Guruji, but according to the orders of him only.

21 Sikh soldiers of 36th Sikh Regiment(the highest decorated regiment of Indian Army) were defending a post there, when they were suddenly attacked by around 14 thousand Pashtuns. The officer incharge, tried to send a call for help, but it was impossible for the help to reach on time. So, instead of backing out and running away, they decided to fight on their own. By the time help came, i.e., the night of 13th and 14th, all 21 were dead, but they held the enemies for the whole time and took down around 600 of them. They proved to be the True Sikhs of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

For the complete details of the saga, click here.


It will always be an honor to belong to such a religion who never bowed down in front of anyone. It will be an honor to belong to a religion who saved the lives of women of many Hindu families during the mughal rule, even when in return the same mob of people were just making fun of us by calling "Beware, its 12o'clock, Sikh will attack", because it was only for good and not for getting anything in return.

We, Sikhs, belong to just 1.4 % of 1.237 billion population of India(as of 2012) and still contribute to:
33% of total income tax,
67% of total charities,
45% of the Indian Army,
59,000 plus Gurudwaras serve langar, free of charge, to over 60 lakh people every day!

For those, who cut their hairs and dishonor the religion, just look how beautifully Sikhism is being followed in foreign countries, then why not in India where it all started?

When in doubt, just remember these words:

It translates to:

Khalsa is my form special, In Khalsa I live
Khalsa is my body, With Khalsa Im ever ever present
Khalsa my friend companion, khalsa mother father peacegiver
Khalsa my faith and actions, Khalsa my distinct personal mystique
khalsa my treasure vast, Khalsa keeps my honour
Khalsa my satguru complete, Khalsa my virtous noble friend, brave dauntless warrior
Khalsa army of God, the Akal Purakh, Khalsa joy of the Supreme Being

PS: Thanks to Priyankar for sharing the article about the event of Saragarhi.

The DEVIL behind the MAHATMA...!!!

Happy Birthday Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji...!!!

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 "Father of Nation" was in death bed, counting his last breaths, and our father-of-nation left his father for having sex with his wife. According to the records, everyone knew that his father was in his last moments, but our dude couldn't control his "carnal desires". As quoted by JAD ADAMS, What shall we call a person like this...??? "Sex-Mad" or "Sex-Maniac" or something else...???

Recently Asaram Bapu was accused of sexual abuse and many such things, even Paedophilia, that Rajasthan High Court has denied to grant him bail. But well I won't be surprised that for these acts, Asaram Bapu's idol is Gandhi himself. If I'm not wrong, then Gandhi adopted brahmcharya, but did our 77-year old dude ever thought about it when he slept naked with his 18-year old grand-niece to show his pure intentions and that he followed brahmcharya strictly by showing he didn't do anything with her grand-niece when they were in the above mentioned state. That was just one shameful instance quoted. There were many such acts of him with the women of almost half his age or so, like sleeping with his grand-nephew's wife and similarly many other devotees. I'm damn sure if Gandhi would have been alive, then he would have been arrested for sexual abuse and would have been behind bars for life for sexual offenders. To show yourself strong, sleeping naked and alone with your devotees and then saying you didn't do anything doesn't make you a "Mahatma".

The story of our "Father of Nation" great doings doesn't end here as a sex-abuser, he did a lot and lot of things which were highly unlawful and I don't want to make an estimate of by how many sections he'd be charged with Indian Penal Code's sections, if he would have been alive today.

Before leaving, just think about these:
*We call "Mahatma" a guy who used to abuse his wife.
*We call "Mahatma" a guy who denied his wife for sex for many years and used to go out and sleep with other women.
*We call "Mahatma" a guy who slept naked with the young girls of his own family and the ladies from the families of his devotees to prove that he can control his manliness and followed brahmcharya. If he has to prove that he can control his such desires then he should have done something concrete, as at the age of 77, "you can just sleep only with a women". And that is something, I don't think I should repeat again.
*We call "Mahatma" a guy whose mistakes lead to India's partition.
*We call "Mahatma" a guy, who if had supported then we wouldn't have lost some gems like Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru and many more and might have got independence earlier than we got now.
...The list goes on and on.

For those who think, I'm being very harsh, then before ending, I want to ask why his own son, Harilal Gandhi was strictly against his stern morality, sexual abstinence...??? Atleast some views would have matched, if not all, afterall both were almost of the same time(age gap was less) and both were against India being under British Rule.

1) Google

PS: No one is a complete saint, but why should a devil be named "Mahatma"...??? Anyways, Happy Birthday to him.

Golden Doors of Freedom...!!!

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

"A picture is worth a thousand words".

So to support the statement of Mr. Craver, here I am with 725 thousand words for you or you can say a set of 725 pictures. Don't worry, you don't have to scroll through all of them, they will automatically come to you at the rate of 25 pictures per second.

{In other words, I present to you a 29 second video (shot @25 frames per second) :P}

PS: Hope these 29 seconds (If you have watched them) delivers the message, as intended.

What constitutes a JEE Topper...??? Fluke or Hard-Work...!!!

Disclaimer: Title of the post says it all. Continue at your own risk.

Case 1:
Kartikeya Gupta, Delhi Topper
JEE(Advanced):                                          4th rank 
JEE(Main):                                                 323/360
Final Rank(including XII Board marks):          738

Case 2:
                                  1st Student                              2nd Student
JEE(Main):                    247/360                                    247/360
XII Boards:                     461/500                                    469/500
Final Rank:                     5814                                         3962

Case 3:
                                1st Student                              2nd Student
JEE(Main):                  210/360                                    260/360
XII Boards:                    95%                                           92%

Final Rank(1st Student) >> Final Rank(2nd Student)

List of such cases are so long that one can't imagine. So, its better to not to enlist more here.

But why on earth do they come up with new policies to ruin the future of India? I gave it 5 and a half years back. It wasn't a joke. I still remember how tough it was and how Chemistry stopped me from entering JEE and I don't think that it is any joke now also.

The amount of effort that student has put in scoring 323/360 would be phenomenal, and 5-7% less marks in boards pays him by earning 738 rank AIR.

If you score 8 marks less, meaning 1.3% less, your rank can fall down by almost 2000.

Criteria for passing the board exams to appear for JEE was worth it. It would have been fine if the cut-off was increased from 60% to 70% in boards to appear for JEE. But taking 40% weightage of board marks into JEE was horrible idea. Here I'd like to ask just one question...

What do they think that is it any joke to score in JEE...??? Do we score by fluke...??? That possibility is almost next to impossible, even if someone says that he/she cleared it by luck, that person also must have put a lot of effort sometime back. Whereas scoring in boards is way easy. Your answer booklets are not scrutinized in boards until and unless you have scored highest in that subject across whole board. You'll rarely find any novelty in the questions coming in any board exams. Its just the level of difficulty which is set by the board to check the papers which regulates the marks every year. Any student, good at mugging up, can score good marks in boards. But that's not the case in JEE. It takes a lot of hard-work to crack it.

Is this some kind of mockery of Indian education going on from the last one year or so? Last few days, I've been posting a lot against Indian Education System. I don't know how but I keep coming across these news' again and again. This time, I didn't get much chance to read any newspaper or any online article, but then I received this article by mail from my sister. I thought that I won't read it. But couldn't help it and after I read it, here you see the result, another post... :P

I'd like to end the post with an awesome quote by Navjot Singh Siddhu.

"There is light at the end of the tunnel for India,
but it's that of an incoming train which will run them over."

Perfectly suits the situation. :-/

India: Normal Day vs Rakhi Day...!!!

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.
"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.

When fights used to start with "My Dad is Strongest. No, my Dad is Strongest."


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 confess that I did it sometimes, got scolded, then never did.

5) Doctor = Headsman/Executioner:

 6) School = Prison:

7) Paper roll = Pirates Binocular:

8) Cardboard Roll = Sword:

9) Broomstick = For flying(which never happened)

10) Bicycle = Army Tank

11) Drawing room = A room with fire on floor

 If you don't remember, ask your mom how many times she scolded you for ruining the drawing room.
(In our house, entry for naughty kids was banned in the drawing room)

12) Bed = Trampoline

 Well, same comment as above(confirm from your parents :P)
(I did this, very rarely, u know why :P)

And at last,
13) Toy Soldier = Real Soldiers

PS: To the kids of 21st century: You're gonna miss your real childhood. :)
PS: A special thanks to Google for the images and Flipkart for reminding the good old days.

What would you prefer...EAT ROYALLY or FLUSH ROYALLY...???

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 of SH*TTING royally, why not eat royally...???

cya :P

Raam Naam Satya Hai...!!!

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 will surely make you have some thought on what you used to believe till now.

Think with an unbiased mind
Is there anything bad in it, a curse or something...???
Is it just our superstition...???

PS: This post has not been made for targeting any religion or anyone's religious believes.

NO to IIT...Where is it leading to...???

"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 "unity in diversity", so lets promote it.

Then again, couple of centuries later, as our society progressed, we formed leaders who again instead of removing this crap caste system, thought lets continue with this system, and give these sects a little bit favors for couple of days and enjoy for years as a leader. But the question was, what incentives shall be given? So then at last this quota system came. It said, general category are self-sufficient, they can do anything, lets help lower sections of society. What a beautiful thought, isn't it? But when its misuse was started, then...
then what...every section started demanding its quota, and soon, general category became MINORITY and for overcoming these problems, many general category started faking quota certificates.

Somewhere in between, the outer world, overtook India. So for improving the education level again, 7 Institutes were opened, named as INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, better known as IIT. Soon, it became a dream for people to get admission in IIT. However, soon government of India, made it easy for everyone to get into IIT, obviously by easy I meant, NO STUDYING, just spend some money in forging your caste certificate and're through."

First imposing the quota system on all good colleges, then changes in education system of schools.

Now, the situation in 2013:

1. 769 students left the IIT offer after FIRST COUNSELING.
2. 274 students left the IIT offer after SECOND COUNSELING.

The situation has already reached where students have started saying no even to IITs, what will the fate of Indian education system after few years?

Can anyone predict that what will be the next step by our government towards ruining our treasure?

PS: Feels so bad when I write such things about the system under which I grew, just because some few top politicians are ruining it for the sake of increasing their bank balances. Just hope that I soon become competent enough to change the system and make it reach back to the shining colors, where it used to be few decades back.

I wrote an Essay, Really...??? :O

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 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) Art of Communication (I don't have any such art, but somehow I realized that its desperately needed, so unfortunately wrote about this one)

Anyways, last night, I again proving myself as an engineer, finished and mailed the essay exactly 5 minutes before the deadline. Before sending, I asked one of my friends read it and liked it, so I thought lets share it here.

Disclaimer: Don't expect it to be funny by any chance, it was officially submitted...Hence, Read it at your own risk... :P


Art of Communication
History of communication dates back to the time when God created the very first creature. It won’t be wise enough to specifically mention the earth as the place of creation, as we don’t know ourselves that whether life exists somewhere else or not and if yes, then since when? No one knows the answer.

But, what is communication? Communication is when someone responds to other person’s reaction in any way. Response can be in any form, giving attention while listening, replying to someone’s reaction or question, etc. Communication starts for anyone automatically since the time of birth and is continued till the person expires. It is something, which neither can be ignored, nor can be avoided. Even in sub-conscious state of mind, a person is responsive to a lot of different kinds of actions, for example, when a person is asleep and suddenly someone shouts near him, the response observed is obvious. This is actually a way of representing the disturbance caused to sleeping person.

Being one of the most important and unavoidable part of any one’s life, the way in which one communicates is important. Whenever an action is made, there will be some audience to that action. So it’s important that we take care of the basic necessities of our audience which can be a single person in a one to one conversation to many in a group discussion or presentation. But, what are the basic necessities when facing any audience? Well, here comes the role of “Art” of communication. Yes, using everything wisely is an art. This is something where at least everyone should try to be good at, considering the self-experienced occurrences of events where this art is desperately required. One of the basic requirements of communication is to have confidence, not over-confidence. The important thing is to learn the difference between the two as there is a very thin line between confidence and over-confidence, which is generally over looked and people land up in a bad state of this art. Along with confidence, good communication requires not shouting and calmly listen to other person’s points also which requires high amount of patience. If you’re the only one dominating into the conversation and not letting anyone speak, then it is a bad form of communication because this means that you’re in an over-confident state and think you’re perfect. These all constitute the listening skills part of communication because listening requires the maximum amount of patience.

Leaving aside the emotional barriers which were just discussed, there are many other barriers which are not in our control and are tough to overcome when encountered, for example language differences. Language problem is the most prominent when one prefers some more comfortable local language instead of, maybe less comfortable, but common language. However, language not only refers to someone’s mother tongue, it also sometimes refers to when someone, say in any technical presentation uses a lot of terms which are familiar to the presenter but are jargon to the audience. So, it’s sometimes considered better to have a conversation with a person of same field as far as possible, else explanation of jargon is must.

Well, being a mortal, we can’t be master to every art, so being a master of something in which you’re good at is the best thing. However, along with everything, one art which is most essential to learn for everyone is “Art of Communication”, as it is a free gift by Him to every creature in this universe.


PS: For those who survived or skipped the above essay and are reading this line. Good Bye. See you soon.

Easiest way to be a MILLION DOLLAR BABY...!!!

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"

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 in the beginning of the post.

He left me SPEECHLESS...!!!

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.

"Ghanta Patriotism, Do Brain Drain", says Indian Education System

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. in corruption, you should stay in India.

If we talk about schooling system in India, then 

1) Making grading system compulsory for school kids everywhere in CBSE board, was it wise?
2) If you say yes, then how wise was reducing the course for board? There's literally no course left to study(I don't any student in the school will like me saying it), its just a formality now in CBSE.

And, those who fall in general category, have actually become the minorities these days. Why so much quota for every category, that general have become a minority?

Three days ago, there was a news that a Delhi kid, Karthik Sawhney, was not allowed to sit for IIT-JEE just because he was blind. By his physical disability, how can someone judge his mental abilities? He is far better than many of us out there. Here are some of his achievements.

1) The one who has never seen what 2nd rank is since 5th standard. 
2) 95.8% in 12th standard.
3) All India Rank 1st, International Rank 3rd in 11th National Cyber Olympiad 2011.
4) Gold Medal in Quiz Contests by Derek O'Brien in 2005
He has a long list of achievements which are spectacular...for his whole CV, click here. Well one good news, he got selected in Stanford University. Congratulations to him.

Anyways, moving out of the schools, how efficient is the graduation system? I don't want to name anyone, but have seen students getting f***ed in academics just because student went on with some idea and made it work which their professors thought it won't work. I have also seen students scoring high grades, just by moving behind the faculties all the time, (I call it "get grades by licking the a**es"). One more shitty thing that's too much in trend these days, mug up properly, and vomit on the paper whatever was there in the slides as it is, and you score highest and if you write something on your own or try to explain or write a single word extra, you are doomed.

But sometimes, you do get a guide which is a real gem, which happens if you're really-really very lucky. Obviously, gems are tough to find.

PS: Well, I'm also in doing my masters, so its better I shouldn't be scolding the system now.
PS: Once again I'd say, for having PhD. in corruption, come to India. For other things, India will convince you in the best way and give you a million reasons that you should move out from the hell, which we call as Brain Drain.
PS: No hard feelings specifically for anyone, but feels good to see him reach Stanford University.

Future of Desire or Fate...???

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.
So, the question which arises is:
Is the one which is approaching will somehow lead to the future of my desire...???

Well, time will automatically give the answer and that's how its supposed to be. It won't be called a life if we know what's up next.

PS: Well, thanks for the talk RD. At least you made my lazy mind to have some brain-storming session. ;)

How a Child is Brought-Up, It really does matter...!!!

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 also against those elements of the society due to whom, not only in Delhi, but right now in the whole nation, young girls and women think thousand times before going out. I also know that I might be the only one who'll be putting forward these points. But just once, go through the points below and think once.

1) The event was mainly aimed at spreading awareness among the men in the society about the violence happening against women and treat them with respect. But my point is whenever and wherever I've been through, "Why majority of places I've seen a mother-in-law abusing her daughter against whatever she does or a newly wed daughter-in-law for the dowry or anything?" I don't want to put forward the name, but I've even seen this with one my relative, a mother treating her daughter badly. She also thinks her son is superior than her daughter, no matter what that young fellow does. If a woman is only promoting a man against other woman of the same family, how can one help...???
Pick up any real case of dowry, mother of the guy must have played the role a real "(B)/(W)itch".

2) In the last line of the previous comment, I highlighted "real". You must be wondering why...???
There is a section in the Indian Law Book, 498A, that allows any woman to put forward a case against her in-laws or relatives for abuses and sexual harassment. Consider a situation, "a lady is not satisfied with the lifestyle and living standards of the family of her in-laws. Obviously being an arrange marriage, she can't say anything openly in the society. But if she's smart enough, she can file a case of abuse or harassment against the family and wooofff...its done...She is back in her home with a divorce and with the money. Who cares about the family back there...??? But they are behind bars for atleast next 3 years." This was one fictitious situation stated by me, who knows how many actual such cases happen every year. Considering the normal family where no chance of bribing the law can take place(which is common these days), such that no partiality is done while taking the decision, only 15-18% cases are proved and end up in conviction. Rest end up with the harassment to the family of in-laws in the society. But no such law exists till date which can repay the cost of insult and harassment suffered by the family.

3) "When men talk dirty, its misbehavior. But when women talk dirty, they are trying to be frank". I disagree with this statement. I have lived in Delhi, I have seen the situation getting reversed. But one statement by any woman against any man for "An attempt to rape", and he is screwed. I don't think I need to tell that after that how your society and family will look at you after that.

4) Why misuse the Law...??? Just think on this last point, If a person is wrongly convicted and put behind bars, that person will surely commit some crime once he comes out, maybe the same one for which he spent couple of years of his life in jail. The thinking would be "I've already spent so many years without doing anything, then lets try it once". I'd like to highlight some facts from Jinesh Zaveri's blog:
"Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint, the police at max can record a Non-Cognizable offence against a women. That will never reflect in the statistics. The how will one gauge crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 Male suicides have 45 married males and every 100 women suicides have 25 married women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the in-laws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?"
Now coming back to general discussion:

Every parent says this to their son "respect a woman". I agree. Every parent says their son cannot do this and that, he is innocent, But a question for all those parents... "Have you ever thought, that what activities your son does behind your back?Same question applies to the parents for their daughters also. Can you say and prove that your child is not involved in any wrong activity...??? If yes, then your upbringing is the one on which you should be proud of, otherwise, think upon it before commenting on anyone elses.

Once again, I'd conclude with 3 things:

1) "Upbringing matters for both men and women in the society".
2) Not only men, a woman should also learn how to treat other men and women in the society.
3) If the upbringing is good, and the society around us is educated, why would someone have a need to misuse the Law or shut himself/herself down completely against the violence even if some wrong is done to the person...??? I'd like to quote 3 lines from a song for why people don't raise their voice for wrong:

"जब लैम्पपोस्ट की गंदली पीली रौशनी में कुछ कुछ सा होता है,
जब कोई साया खुद को थोड़ा बचा बहाकर गुम्सायो में खोता है,
जब उलाके ख्वाबोँ को गाडी का गर्म उजाला धीमे धीमे लोटा है,
तब शहर हमारा सोता है। "

A rough translation: 
"When someone tries to do some crime, when people try to run for their life, no-one comes out to help anyone. The whole city sleeps at that time"

How will they, when they don't have even their near and dear ones to help. But the Question why do no one comes up for help...??? I guess mainly because of misbehavior of Law servants...

PS: Why Law Misuse...??? Just give it a thought...Lawmisuse can even create a potential rapist...
PS: Just my views...I'm neither a married men, nor a sufferer. I'm a student. So no offences please :P
