Indian Police is disreputable for its functioning and corruption but here in my hometown Ratlam Police is precedent for its carefulness and on the taking action immediately.

These days police is taking very strong actions to arrest criminals and maintain communal harmony in city. Some furniture is being made in my shop and I was there and police came there and started checking vehicles for weapons and criminals.

I was sitting on my bike near them and watching all the activities then came city S.P. and police instantly became more alert. Policeman stopped a car and the driver did not stop and started arguing with policeman. S.P. Saab came there and slapped the driver and then all the policemen started beating the driver with foot and stick and I became uneasy seeing all this as it is my first chance witness police action. Again a biker came drunk and fought with policeman and then police arrested him and beat him aggressively.

Ratlam has just witnessed a communal riot and police took strong and quick action to control the riots and a curfew was charged in city for few days. People of minority religion are boiled at police and threatening the S.P. and Collector and therefore Police is very strict these days.
After watching all these chaos I couldn’t resist writing all these. At my way to home I told one of the police officer that folks of Ratlam are with the police and Police should be stricter to maintain peace in the city and arrest terrorists of minority population.

Amazing people, Tragic ends

The other day one of India's top fashion model "Viveka Babajee" committed suicide. Hanged in her bedroom, with diary notes testifying her emotional turbulences and loneliness. There is a huge list of sucessful, have it all people who died or killed themselves tragically.

Marilyn Monroe before her `probable suicide’ said in an interview - “Sometimes I’m invited to places to brighten up a dinner table like a musician. You’re just an ornament.” Lucy Gordon (Spiderman fame) also suffered the same agony. An immense sense of loneliness, hopelessness and lack of belonging seems to overpower even the most gifted ones to end the beautiful gift of God, Life.

Things like this are extremely troubling and compels me to count my blessings. Family, friends, my town, my garden, my pets, the soothing morning breeze, the sun rise, the chirping of birds, the moist grass of the morning... there are so many reasons to live and make life more beautiful every day.

May God always be with all of us.

Paul vs. Parrot..!

An octopus named Paul is predicting the winners in this fifa world cup. He is supposed to have psychic powers.

I just can’t understand why an octopus is at all interested in a football match? Or Paul is appointed only for prediction of football matches not for other things. :) Octopus has 8 legs but no hands it may also be the reason Paul loves football. lol
Nobody’s even thinking that these predictions can just be a coincidence. Great. :)

Indian astrologers have been predicting the future accurately with their parrot but they never received such publicity. Our Indian Astrologers may plan to buy these kinds of Octopuses for their Business development. :)  I would prefer the parrot to the octopus. What would you do??? :)))

Yesterday I noticed a parrot in cage in my neighbor’s house and it made me recall that two parrots have died in the same cage and it’s the third one they bought recently.

I am forced to think that human beings are horrible to animals. What if somebody puts us in a small cage for all our life? What’d be our life after that? I think it is hideous practice and should be made illegal. Whenever I see birds in cages I feel very sad because I can’t let them out. If one has to keep bird in cage then its ok as long as you let them out for exercise flights in the house. Cages should be large and proper care must be taken.

But it’s damn cruel to clip their wings and never let them out of their cage. I'm not happy about keeping animals or birds in small cages and so I would never keep a bird. If we had more compassion for animals we’d be better people and we’d be happier too.

If you would read only one book in your life?

Firstly, I strongly recommend that all of us read much much more than just one book in our life :)... (of course other than the school books) But what if I were to read only one book in my entire life time? Which book should this be?

I am not the most voracious reader type (many people I have met actually read one or more book per week) but from whatever reading I have done, I have following preference --

1. Any religious\spiritual book in which you believe... may be Bible, Gita, Quran or any spiritual books. (Hinduism believes that the ultimate aim of human life is to seek God, and hence if we just want to read only one book then why not devote it to the ultimate aim)

2. For more materialistic humans like me :), I would recommend "The magic of Thinking Big" by David Schwartz.

This book has the potential to change our thinking and affect every possible dimension of our life. I read this book long ago and I keep going back to read certain chapters to pep up myself. More on this book sometime later... :)

Let me know which book would you read if you are to read only one book in your life???

Stray Dogs

During my early morning walk today, I saw a girl with her cute pet puppy. Suddenly a couple of street dogs started barking at the pet. Unfortunately street dogs or stray dogs are still a reality is most cities of India. These are the dogs born and raised on streets with no one being owner or caretaker. And as the herd mentality goes, hearing the barking sound a few more stray dogs from nearing areas joined the chorus. The girl was a little perturbed and as it was morning there were very few people around (hardly any I guess).

I went up to the girl, consoled her by the old saying that barking dogs seldom bite, called a cab to make sure that she along with Silky reach home safely. (by the way Silky is the pet's name). I felt like a hero who just rescued a little girl and her pet...but I was about to see another hero....

As the cab drew away, one of the stray dogs, who seemed to be the leader of the pack, ran behind the cab for a distance. Constantly barking and waging his tail, after running a while he came back with a sort of winner's smile of face :) ... Happy that he shoo away an intruder from his territory...

Meanwhile I have found an NGO on internet dedicated to the cause of Stray dogs... Time to call them up....

A little girl....

Can we really just think and grow rich…???? This was the thought which crossed my mind when I first saw the title ‘Think and grow rich’ on a book….

Curious… I picked up the book and found that it actually contained a lot of meat about human behavior and human endeavors.

Unless I think something how can I do or achieve that? All great work begins with a thought…blah blah blah....I have read this many times….

But the very first story about this little girl touched me deeply… I would simply narrate the story here …

The story is setup in a little older time where racial discrimination seemed to be still prevalent...

A young man was helping his uncle grind wheat in an old fashioned mill. The uncle operated a large farm on which a number of colored sharecrop farmers lived. Quietly the door opened and a small colored child, daughter of a tenant, walked in and stood near the door. The uncle saw the child and barked at her roughly - "What do you want?" Meekly the child replied, "My mommy say send her Fifty cents". "I'll not", the uncle retorted, "Now you run home.""Yes, sah," the child replied. But she did not move. The uncle went ahead with his work, so busy that he did not notice that child has not left. When he looked up and saw her still standing, he furiously yelled "I told you to go home or I'll take a switch to you."
The little girl said "Yes Sah" but she did not budge an inch. The uncle dropped the sack of grain he was about to pour into the mill hopper, picked a barrel stave, and started toward the child with an expression which indicated trouble.

The young man held his breath, he was sure he was about to witness a murder as he knew his uncle's fierce temper. He knew that colored children were not supposed to defy white people in that part of the country.

When the uncle reached close to the child, she quickly stepped forward one step, looked up into his eyes, and screamed at top of her shrill voice, "MY MOMMY'S GOT TO HAVE THAT FIFTY CENTS."

The uncle stopped, looked at her for a minute, then slowly laid the barrel stave on floor, put his hand in his pocket, took out half a dollar and gave it to the girl. The child took the money, slowly backed towards the door, never taking her eyes off the man she had just conquered.

I seem to be loving this book. I might bore you all with some more posts from the book soon :) :) :)....

Past two yrs, during my course, I met people from different places of India. Now sometimes I miss few things that I used to do over there.

I miss hitchhiking most. Every morning I used to go-to-go to college and return back to room only by hitchhiking. Often I felt like my last ride when I got to be pillion of a drunken man and he drove rashly. :)
That time I swear not to hitchhike next time but next day I am ready for it again. J

Number of times I could not attend my first lecture because I was waiting for a car and nobody stopped that day. I didn’t feel like going on bike or any other vehicle. I was about to debar due to short attendance in first lecture :) I had to submit a medical certificate for that.

I met really interesting people this way. Some people ask bookful questions during the short journey that I feel like asking them please drop me here only I’d rather go by foot than to answer your worthless questions. While some people are very interesting and they appreciate this way of going to college and it reminds their days of hitchhiking.
I did not have to spend a single penny on going to college. Although it was not my aim, but was a great fun and adventure everyday. :)

Ufff... ye garmi..!!

Global warming has started exhibiting its serious effects. The temperature of earth is varying significantly. The ice of both the poles is melting very fast and sea level is increasing.

We can observe its effects in weather. I used to like summer season a lot. But I no more like summer because of very high temperature. Only few years ago the summers were meant to enjoy holidays and to travel but in the temp. Of 45 – 47’ c. you cannot afford to go anywhere.

Summers are becoming hotter and winters more cool. Nature is behaving very strangely but its not her fault its only because of we all. We’ll have to make earth green in order to save it. Forests should be preserved and trees should be plant all over the world.

Situation in India is worse and is expected to get worst in coming years. Temp. is already above 45 and the hottest nine days of the year called “nautapa” have not started yet. Wind is warm at all 24 hrs of days; there is no relief even in night. Scorching sunlight has caused thousands of people to die.
The hot weather has made me restless I don’t know how to face this summer.

Rich dad poor dad - Summary

Hi... As one of my friend asked for a small summary of one of my favorite book 'Rich dad poor dad' .. here I go .. (apologize for delay clouds :) )...

1. Describes what a poor parent teaches their children about money as oppose to what rich parents teach their children about money.

2. Poor and middle class work for money. Rich have money work for them.

3. Financial literacy - Money without financial intelligence is money gone soon.

4. Buy assets and reduce liability...but hardest thing is to differentiate between asset and liability

5. Cash flow of rich and poor people (one of my favorite topics of the book)

Assets - Put money to your pocket e.g. share, business etc.
Liabilities - Takes money out of your pocket e.g. home (yes, he challenges the very notion of home being the greatest investment, car etc.)

How to increase the asset quadrant and reduce the liability quadrant -

6. Describes Power of taxes. How rich use taxes to their advantage -

Rich -- Earn -> Spend -> Pay Tax

Poor -- Earn -> Pay Tax -> Spend

(see the reversal in order of Pay tax and Spend)

7. Practical tips on how to begin and act.

The great thing about the book is that its not a 'get rich quick' book. It doesn't teach you any shortcut for getting rich, but it teaches you the financial wisdom which can help you increase your wealth.

A Tribute to GOD of Cricket

Sachin Tendulkar is really God of Cricket. Almost all the records of cricket are owned by him. There are no apparent weaknesses in Tendulkar’s game. He can score all around the wicket, off both front foot and back, can tune his technique to suit every condition, temper his game to suit every situation, and has made runs in all parts of the world in all conditions.

Some of his finest performances have come against Australia, the overwhelmingly dominant team. He is really most complete batsman of the world. Sachin is soon going to make another record of having most followers as since he joined Twitter.
Tendulkar’s considerable achievements seem greater still when looked at in the light of the burden of expectations he has had to bear from his adoring but somewhat unreasonable followers. We all need to follow Sachin on Twitter so that he makes another record and once again make the nation proud.

Tendulkar is a living legend but still he lives a very simple family life. He celebrates his birthday with simplicity and he is a family man. He is in real sense, youth icon of world. After making 200 runs in ODI, the world is sure that Sachin would be first and last man to make 100 centuries in International Cricket.

Rich Dad Poor Dad... A must for financial novice...

One of the most amazing and enlightening book on personal finance management, I have ever come across. Robert Kiyosaki's simple writing style with a story narration will bind you to the book. The essence lies in the fact that the book never preaches anything yet by the end of every chapter you would brutally face some of the untaught realities of life.

Robert attacks the very myth of common people who teaches their child to study hard, earn good grades and then join a GOOD job with secure future. He thinks that this very psychology of getting a good secure job without knowing the money management basics pushes a person into the vicious circle of working -> earning -> working -> earning. He described this as rat race and the goal of the personal money management should be to come out of this rat race.

I recommend each one of us read this book and also instill the basics of money management to our next generation.Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money-That the Poor and the Middle Class Do Not!

What Goes Around--Comes Around

Why some people have bags of money and some are paupers? Why some people get respect from all and some people live their life in mediocrity? Why some people get attention from all and some are hardly listened?

I was going through a study on people. I wanted to know is it true that “ what goes around, comes around” I studied life of many people and I was taken aback by the results that it is 100% true. If you want money, give it away. You want respect give it away. You want love then give it away. It’s the easiest funda of living life in the way we want. In addition I’d say if you want message then send message to friends :)
It is synopsis of my study that whatever we do to other people will come to us back. Trust me it WILL come to us, it might not be in exact way but it will come in time. We’ll have to payback.

Now something interesting, my neighbor’s daughter eloped with her boyfriend yesterday. Lots of hue and cry is going on in the neighborhood. But I believe if the girl and boy are happy with each other then there should be no one protesting for their happiness whether it is parents, relatives, neighbors, friends or their ex- boyfriends or ex-girlfriends…. :)

I don’t know maturity is good or bad but mere me maturity kab ayegi yar…??? When I get mature only then I can say that it’s good or bad. If you want to know, then wait….

Uncommon Cold

My head has become woollier, my eyes waters, my nose tips have become rough, my throat pains, I don’t feel like eating, I am not liking anything, I did almost nothing today, my mind has become obscure, I don’t know what am I exactly doing….

Clear symptoms of common cold :)
Couple of days ago I was reading a blog on cold and I didn’t realized it that I would be soon in the condition of writing on common cold. Cold is a communicative disease but does it spread by reading blogs on cold? :)Just kidding…

Rite now my granny called me for “Najar utarna”, it means to remove evil eye. I can’t say it works or not but its only about how much she cares for me. Now I am back in my room and just wondering what to do now?

Whenever someone asks me what are you studying, I say I am pursuing P.G.D.M. from Dehradun. And then people react as wow Dehradun, hill station, how far, what’s there to see, for what it is famous and so on….

I just say them that it’s famous for its cooling climate, Mussoorie, for I.M.A. and for F.R.I.

So now I am disclosing for what Dehradun is actually famous for. It might be of interest to outsiders but my friends of college know it very well and may add in this list. :)

List is simple -:

1. Weather
2. Wine
3. Women
Now what else can I say guys?? :))

If you don’t believe this, go and stay in Dehradun for at least a year…

No title

What should I do to stop thinking about someone???
If someone asks me to control anybody’s mind and heart my answer would be if I could control my own heart and mind that would be best for me.

Sometimes I think I am mad. :)

Art of Living

The finest art is to learn to live happily. Happiness depends only upon what you think and your attitude.

Yesterday I was happy that one blogger started following my blog. Although I am a lousy blogger but it made me happy. And today again it was only one blogger following. But I am happy that still one blogger is following my blog.

It’s so very true that no one can make you feel miserable if you stick firmly to keep happy. Being nonchalant is best but one can’t be nonchalant to all, some people really matter…
