Truckers hat

Wo ROYE to bahut par mujhse munh mod kar roye
Koi majboori hogi jo dil tod kar ROYE
Mere saamne kar diye tukade meri tasveer ke
Maloom hua mere pichhe wo unhe jod k ROYE

Delhi 6

This one looks like an Abhishek kinda movie ( Which is a relief after Dostana/Drona). The interesting thing is baby AB has done most of the flicks in which he is guy next door who wanna make it big. Brimming with ambitions and a strong desire to prove himself, bunty bably, bas itna sa khwab hai, yuva, Guru, Naach, Om jai jagdeesh, Tera Jadoo chal gaya to name a few. Probably the industry always saw him under the shadow of AB senior. khair ..
Rahman is doing music for the movie, another reason I am looking forward to it. motu says noone can do justise to Rahman's music except Rahman himself, I guess I agree with her on this one. Rahman rocks on his tunes. So hopefully It will be having atleast one song from him too.
The bird coming out of fountain and spreading its wings shows the caliber of the director. bw Sonam kapoor doing that dovey dance looks cute :) check out the preview

jo aaun samane un ke to marahabaa na kahen 
jo jaaun wahan se kahin ko, to Khairabad nahin 

kabhi jo yad bhi aata hoon main to kahate hain 
ke aaj bazm men kuchh fitna-o-fasad nahin 

tum un ke vaade zikr un se kyun karo "Ghalib" 
ye kya ke tum kaho aur vo kahen ke yaad nahin

be the change

Jainism: one of the oldest religion that is still practiced by a large number of people. This is one institution of faith which is relatively untouched by the impurities of time. Jainism is more of a philosophy than a religion. It consists of 5 basic principles, which helps to create a platform for the Jainistic way of living.

  1. Ahinsa (Non-Violence)
  2. Satya (Truth )
  3. Asteya (Non-Stealing)
  4. Bramhacharya (Celibacy)
  5. Aparigraha (Non-Attachment)
Jain philosophy does not believe in a single god. It says every living thing has the potential to become sidhdha (pure soul). Everything which can change itself, which has energy then it can change the world; hence every thing can be qualified to be the supreme authority. So a true follower of the god should salute this potential. the 5 basic principles are just an extension to this philosophy. 
Ahinsa means more than non - killing. Any act which hurts someone or can cripple its ability to progress is called Ahinsa. Satya can be defined as a more specific form of Ahinsa and should be followed in a harmless manner. 
Jainism believes in playing the role which has been assigned to an individual and play it in accordance to the 5 vows. One should earn something then only he should enjoy his earnings. 
The human life is defined as a journey, and the destination of this journey is Moksha: the State when a living entity is able to identify the divine in itself. Celibacy is prescribed to overcome the extreme form of indulgence that this life has to offer. 
One should save only that much which is absolutely necessary for living. Anything more than that is depriving someone needy. That doesnt mean that one should not make an effort to earn more and use his/ her capabilities to contribute the progress; that extra earning should be used for the welfare of the ones who cant help themselves. 
Jain Muni practice these principle to the extreme, and set an example to the world to follow them. 
Jainism says All good and evil resides within oneself only. So instead of trying to change the world one should bring the change in itself. Overcome the Evil and be a Jinendra, and bring out the good. Hence the individual can be a unit of change; the positive and pregressive change.

Jara hat k jara bach k ye hai Mumbai Meri Jaan !!

The attacks on Mumbai made a lot of sh** hit the fan: Innocent lives, blame games, dirty politics and soft Indian Borders (That means we did not learn a lesson or two from Kargil).

The initial news flashed pictures of a car remains and a panicked Mumbai; and then the tension kept on rising. Horror gripped the city for next couple of days.
A considerable number of "Indians" gave their lives to kill the rats. But its time we should take a look back and identify what went wrong.

We have 16 + intelligence agencies in India and each of them had bits and pieces about these attacks, but no information is useful unless its processed and in given to capable people. The so called "IT SuperPower" does not have any guidelines to share the information between crucial govt. echelons. If this information was shared than probably all those terror boys would have landed in Yerwada jail instead of Taj. A group plans a terror attack, its follow a beeline to Mumbai. Park their boat in the heart of financial capital of India. take to stroll to the VIP places and capture the attention of the world for next 3 days not to mention bring the city to a standstill which boast of "Mumbai never sleeps".

Our security force: no doubt its full of young and red blood but they they are severely lacking in terms of resources and combat gear. Karkare got 3 bullets on his chest; either he is not wearing the bulletproof jacket which was highly unlikely in such a high alert situation OR the bullet proof jacket was nothing more than a canvas vest. I cant believe NSG commandos were not carrying the smoke bombs, I mean they are experts and they know their job very well. but a smoke bomb can be very useful in such condition, and which is an integral part of the kit of a close combat teams of other nations. I have seen commandos in movies only but they were always with sophisticated headgear equipped with communication and optical instruments which can be proved life saving and mission critical at the end of day, but our NSG got only what looked like a simple hard hat to face bullets.

I liked it when Google launched its Google earth; it’s amazing and very sleek. But the terrorists find it equally useful. US govt forced Google to blur or misplace its key building on G earth but India and other countries have no control over it and now terror organization need no spy to collect information for them. It’s freely and legitimately available; thanks to the open world wide web.

from the first day the tragedy was being touted as 9/11 of India. WHAT THE HECK?? why we need to Americanize everything including something as serious as this??

Politicians failed miserably in this case (once again). First they reacted late to bring in specialized forces. Once it is over they started playing their fav games. Home minister, CM and deputy CM were made whip boys instead of taking the responsibility of the events and taking some concrete steps. Our PM is a very intelligent and respected man but with his feeble voice and docile attitude I never found him fit enough to be the PM of India. but then the question is Who else.... I wish I had an answer to this. waise where is that prophet of marathi manoos these days ... ?

They came with a plan to kill at least 5000 people. They got killed before the target but not before they had taken a lot of innocent lives. And not to mention the plan was a hit they got a full televised coverage of the battle better than they expected. Each country whose citizen were in there was following the operation closely. With that kind of publicity terrorist organization couldn’t ask for more. Also the TV crews kept showing details of each movement of the army on TV, Now even if the terrorists did not have access to the TV sets they were continuously in touch with their bosses across the border. And these TV crews were acting as their eyes.
Situation was so bad that the English tour of India got cancelled. Those buggers got a reason to run away and save their tail. And India was put with the names like Afganistan and pakistan. One has a military govt and the other is a failed democracy.

One funny story was reported in "The Dawn"- pakistani daily. Someone (allegedly from Delhi) made a call to paki prez and he was hooked up with the prez by the prez staff without any verification. The person claimed he is Pranab Mukharji and India is planning an attack on pakistan. A charter plain was sent to Delhi to bring back its one of visiting minister while he had a scheduled flight on the same evening. Security forces were put on high alert. An extremist group claimed that if India attacks pakistan 500 sucide bombers will cause havoc in Indian cities. paki prez called his nanny in US. The nanny called up her Delhi counterpart and assured pakistan that India is not attacking pakistan.

Pakistan and India are 2 nations which share their fate like Siamese twins. They fight or they laugh but they will always be together facing the consequences of their actions. “Kasab”- the only surviving member of the death squad is just 21. He got ready to give his life to the "mission" just because his Akas promised that his family will be taken care of after him. The amount promised was just 1.5 lacs. roughly $3000 . Now what else a drop out of prelim school, who wants to do something good for his family can think of. Who will teach him the difference between right and wrong? His village is full of such stories. The problem is located somewhere deep down in the mud which we need to sort out as soon as possible.

Shuruat ...

Is baar jab woh choti si bachchi mere paas apni kharonch le kar aayegi
Main usey phoo phoo kar nahin behlaoonga
Panapney doonga uski tees ko
Is baar nahin

Is baar jab main chehron par dard likha dekhoonga
Nahin gaoonga geet peeda bhula dene wale
Dard ko risney doonga,utarney doonga andar gehrey
Is baar nahin

Is baar main na marham lagaoonga
Na hi uthaoonga rui ke phahey
Aur na hi kahoonga ki tum aankein band karlo,gardan udhar kar lo main dawa lagata hoon
Dekhney doonga sabko hum sabko khuley nangey ghaav
Is baar nahin

Is baar jab uljhaney dekhoonga,chatpatahat dekhoonga
Nahin daudoonga uljhee door lapetney
Uljhaney doonga jab tak ulajh sake
Is baar nahin

Is baar karm ka hawala de kar nahin uthaoonga auzaar
Nahin karoonga phir se ek nayee shuruaat
Nahin banoonga misaal ek karmyogi ki
Nahin aaney doonga zindagi ko aasani se patri par
Utarney doonga usey keechad main,tedhey medhey raston pe
Nahin sookhney doonga deewaron par laga khoon
Halka nahin padney doonga uska rang
Is baar nahin banney doonga usey itna laachaar
Ki paan ki peek aur khoon ka fark hi khatm ho jaye
Is baar nahin

Is baar ghawon ko dekhna hai
Gaur se
Thoda lambe wakt tak
Kuch faisley
Aur uskey baad hausley
Kahin toh shuruat karni hi hogi
Is baar yahi tay kiya hai
