“Sapna Kabhi Sakar nahi hota,
Mohabbat Ka Kohi Akaar nahi Hota,
Sab Kuch Ho jata hai iss duniya mein,
Magar dobara kisi se sacha pyar nahi hota .”
yes this is an SMS…
but it made me think…coz u see it was sent by someone i know pretty well and i know what that message means to him/her.
The Person has gone through a lot ..and when finally he/she found someone who was perfect for him/her.When The story is starting to sound like a fairy tale it comes to light that It can never Be soo.
Here Caste Becomes the Ugly Villain..In India today it still exists and rules over the right of marriage to whom and which caste that person belongs too. Even Dowry too exists and this makes a mockery of out of our Educational system which makes us study Essays( Compositions) thats says us that they have been abolished and should not be continued,.. yes they have indeed changed the Mindset of the younger generation but we gotta Listen to Our Elders na!!!! ” thats Tradition ” they say. And Poof!! there goes everything.
Recently the Supreme Court gave out a statement that “Only in India do we see People Claiming to be Backward!!!” (something like that,dont remember it exactly..buts that the Essence of It). and yes thats what it said on the OBC 27% reservation while keeping a stay order..many were relieved but now i guess the governmant wants to implement it.who knows what will happen in the future.Now im not saying that ‘reservation is Bad!!’ its just that the Creamy Layer should be left out of it. Thats what i’ve always been saying. Seen too much Injustice in Life in that area.
Oh God Everything is Politics.
OK Now back to that friend of mine.. well Come on Now ‘Is that Right???’ i dont think so..well as i am writing this i came to realise that we can not always have what we might want. Although “WANT” is quite a Big word. The status in that person’s life is such that whatever Time is left that they can spend together they are doing so..believe me i’ve heard both sides of the stories and thats why i felt like writing this.
what i came across Googling (try out the New BLOG search option)
desiCritic… Bhargavi…and someone called K.A.……
well thats a lot of time since i’ve posted something..and thats just because i barely had any free time to spend online..plus im not pushing my luck at home since the results are due any day now.
ok so this is the ‘Holy Week’. it started with the Palm Sunday. Today was Maundy Thursday,Tomorow is Good Friday..and finally on Sunday is Easter..which is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ.
Now as a preparation before any feast of ours its customary to confess our sins to the Priest…Last time round i couldn’t make it and since this week was full of Holidays i got the time..
What i wanted to write about over here was about the futility of the ritualistic confession..whose only aim was such that we would repent for our sins and then not repeat them anymore..but among all the people who i know , not a single guy(or gal) has found this ritual anything but routine..we go there tell our usual list with some more stuff added at times ..do the penance..and then out we go into the world ..without much effect in our life..the next time we are back we do the same thing ..again and again!!!!The only good thing that comes out of this is that we realise our mistakes..But there are more then enough people who dont follow this nor attend church…they just tell at home that they are going there ..but never turn up!!!
Im not telling that im some saintly guy who follows everything… coz you will find me dreaming away all the time during Mass..just as if i was somewhere else..Physically Present but Mentally Absent…now thats enough for now..
Its gettin Hotter by the day and im sweating away…even as im writin this post at night..im drenched with sweat..Thanks to Global Warming..anyways the world has just some 20 years to go before the Himalays melt and everyone drowns..
Linkin Park is gonna release its new album.. Minutes to Midnight…yes thats the name..i got hold of two tracks…and found them to be mixed with a heavy dose of Metal…lets see what the future holds..

well there are lots more..im listening to this Cd i have of about 175 songs which i had got as a copy of from my cousin.
well ill be not bloggin until the end of the sems ..i write this last post in a long time its my entry to the Times of india’s India poised story writing contest.Tell me how u like it..
“.The alarm crowed. A lusty king of the farmyard cock-a-doodle-do. He shut the mobile up. One hour and five minutes was all he had before his day began. He would steal five minutes from that. Look the other way, he told that frowning creature in his soul. I do it all the time..A Little corruption ,A little bribery .I negotiate the world 24/7 .So why not an extra 5 minutes of sleep ?
I told Myself and buried my head under the pillow .And So began another day in the life of an Indian.But My leep didnt last long as My Mom woke me up ..Because I had to go to college at 7.Hi ,i’m Kenneth just an veryday guy who is working towards his Engineering Degree on Electronics and maybe make it big someday..(read $$$).Ok there i am up again..While having my morning tea i take a glance into the newspaper just more death and destruction over there.. with the Nithari kilings now taking the nation by storm.Its just the funnies for me ..some Calvin gyan keeps me thinking. oops i’m late again..the bus is most probably gonna leave without me…Hurrying to catch the bus i see a lot of people jogging .seems like the people have woken up to the “being healthy” notion. Anyway I stay in the port city of Mangalore .,which is just one of the upcoming cities in India .It just got its First Mall and lot more buildings seem to be coming up .The hustle and bustle associated with the growing cities is slowly catching up to it with the traffic snarls getting more frequent in those congested roads and lets not forget the ever increasing population as well as the number of increasing beggars and roadside hawkers.
Finally i manage to get into the bus .My college is in the next district .I am one of those lucky people who could opt for a good course of my choice in a college of my choice having got some good marks after the mess of this years CET . Education is BIG business now u see. In the college bus ,there i meet some of my friends who travel with me everyday along the 1.5 hour journey to college. We take the NH17 which has since long failed to resemble even remotely a highway and looks worse than a village road.Thank God that the authorities are finally catching up with the work that the havent been doing for oh so long..As the scenery goes by i wonder what will happen to this area in the near future with the number of industries being set up and also the Nagarjuna Thermal Power plant being set up amidst stern opposition from the people. It just gets colder as we move a bit up into the mountains .It reminds us that there’s still winter..
I reach college and there’s nothing much left for me to do but listen ot some boring lectures and wait for the day to come to an end . There’s the Chem teacher who keeps making horrible grammer mistakes luckily thats what keeps us awake in that boring class. Then there’s the lunch break .We usually have it in the nearby eateries or the college canteen. Today we decide to drop by just another place nestled between a group of shops .It advertises in Bold letters “South Indian,north Indian and also Chainees” . The menu too is filled with a lot of mistakes but atleast the food is tasty and also worth the cash that i’m paying.The afternoon comes and goes seeing us struggling to complete our labs .
Finally the classes for the day are over and me and my group of friends are going back home by the same route that we came in the effecient private bus service which is unique to this region of the coast.I trudge home and want to sleep but my day is not over yet . One of the most important activity of the day still isnt over.Yes .,i am a Internet addict ever since i got the new broadband connection .I’ve been networking as well as blogging and keeping in touch with my friends.Blogging is what i feel is catching up among the nation’s youth. post RDB[Rang De Basanti] and Munnabhai , there have been a lot of online petitions as well posts on the sad state of the nations affairs. But here and there there’s an occcasional do-gooder who job doesn’t go without notice.I hear my Mom calling me for dinner and there ends my quota” for the day .
At night ., as i lay awake due to the street light shining brightly just outside my window,i think about the TOI’s India poised campaign .A new India waiting to take its rightful place in the global era ?? The anthem does make you think.Peole say the job is now in the hands of the youth but i feel the older generatino can also chip in .We need guidance and good leaders .Timely placed natural calamities reminds us of the wonderful nature of the Indians but it also brings about the mismanagement of the funds.
Terrorists keep popping up here and there bringing the nation to a standstill yet at the same time there are ordinary people who are taking things into their own hnds .its these people who will be the face of the nation’s future .Thinking about all this i drift of to sleep ,.Yawn!!! Tomorrow is just another hectic Day..
Thanks for reading…
