THE year gone bye

well right ow it is 9:30 pm (ist and yes it is on time ) and so these are the last 2.5 years of the last year and therefore i decided to write how this year had been ....what had changed .....what had come new so this might be one hell of a post ......last year started with my resolution that i will become known in college and not another loser like i was in school ......not liked by neone....considered a neo nerd......well i think i did achieve it to some extent ..... a few people in college do kno me now ...and i am associated with most bodies in college .......so now last year started with me attending all the classes in the first week ......and then never saw the face of the building from 8-5 .....which finally showed on my gpa card ........then there was lohri ......the dance night filled with fun and frolik ......the only north indian festival celebrated ....and celebrated in cosmopolitan way ........then came zephyr part1 ......we tried our best but alas lost this 1 due to politics and senior interference ...........this was the main turning point i was sick of sitting and complaining ........so went to the meeting for waves committee ....became the event manager for 2 events ( 1 of them turned out to be the worst conducted event of the fest but still i enjoyed .......as always i rock ) ....... one more thing which became an integral part of my life and which i discovered last year was ORKUT .......used to spend the whole day siting on the comp seeing her profile ( guessssss who !!!!!!!!! haha very few people know this part ....one of the reasons for me screwing up that sem ) well orkut didnt prove that bad also ......i did discover a lot of old friends whom i could have never contacted otherwise ...... did revise the old ties .......and discovered how much my friends had grown ( met everybody from K.G to 12 ) yes i made very good friends this year came in contact with one my biggest critic and friend in college -vishrut .....1st sem our friendship grew a lot our group tho wont take all ther names was 1 solid entity ....very difficult to move ...yes we had fun ...and yes we had fun while working ....we had our own share of thoughts jokes ...and nuisances .......1 thing i didnot do was find a girl ( wore black on valentines and plan to wear it this time tooo .......probably cuz SHE was still on my mind and heart ) .......then came the biggggggggggggg break the long hols ........had never been so much vela in my life 3 months of total lukha .....nothing to do ...... but yes that also constituted my first trip abroad to australia .......had loads of fun.......gr8 country ........still sometimes i wanna be there ...those beaches of gold coast ......those streets of sydney and yes on that free fall on dreamworld ...it was great ...probably the best time of my life .... ..... hols were complete waste didnt do ....could have done soooooooooooo much but just sat there ........so even my hols passed nothing great in them ........and then second sem .......the ELECTION ......the big fight......everybody was geared up ....even i stood for the post of cultural secretary .........but yes i did learn a few thing ...actually lots of things ......the good always doe snot win .......it is not just important to perform it is also important to e regional ......yes regional .......regionalism played its part and all the people for whom i campaigned lost .....only i won ..... it was different ....i was different ...i had responsibility now .... a big one (atleast thats what i that) tried to perform it to my best .....even in an hostile environment ...but yes while i did moderately well in my post ....our friendship tried to weaken we all now had some or the other post ...we all were on our own ways ...all had different ambitions ...the wall was beginning to crumble .......... and then came a moment in my life which i will never ever forget .......it was OCTOBER 2 ......gandhi jayanti .......a mechanical engineering picnic ....the weather was bad ....... i decided not to go ....but in the end i dont kno what provoked me was there at designated spot boarding the bus .......i remember it clearly ...it was going well ..but just after lunch ...ther was a rush on the beach ...what i saw i couldn't believe .....there was punit .....crying for help....we tried and tried ...tried to form hum,an chain but alas the current was too strong ...and then his body dissappeared we did get him out after fifteen minutes but it was late ......then there was news that even praveen is in water never got him that day ( found his body after 2 days ) .........also later we discovered tht haricharan was in water .......that day was a humbling experience ...i realised how short the life is ...... a guy with whom i talked ten minutes back was no more......also that day i realised things were different i couldnot hide behind people were looking up to me ...dont know for what but they wanted me to act ...probably i had matured ..probably something else....but yes that day i was suddenly made the person who was giving support ....when i myself needed 1 ....and i got it ......from the same wall which was breaking away ......my friends ...we were back for me ..... they didn't leave me alone ....but that 1 week was the most tormenting week of my life .....i used to get nightmares in night ....tho i had asked everybody to cry ...i myself hadn't cried ...not till date ...i dont know why ........campus had never been so gloomy.......we had hope atleast 2 would be saved but the worst news was out ........ everything had gone wrong ...and it was no body's fault ...death just came ...i had seen death for the first time and it was horrifying ..but it did make me strong ....even now i cannot talk to the people who were there ...it brings me those memories ....i hide from them ...tho dont know till when will i hide ........ then lowly me and the campus recovered ...came zephyr 2 .....this time with me in control ....my hostel performed mildly well ...i blame myself for it ..i might not have motivated them enough but yes it fun ......a great fun .... Had a ball.........finally i came back home ...attended a few conferences which i thoroughly enjoyed ...attended moodindigo ....enjoyed it too a lot ......had fun ....and now i am here at 10:15 writing this blog the year has gone by ....and yes it has changed me ...i have become more mature......discovered my strong points and weaknesses.......became known a bit ....looking at it the year was a rollercoaster with its highs and lows ...i got a position.....became known......our friendship was formed ...and it suffered ......the harrowing experiences all of them ...but yes the year was good ...and now entering into 2007 with its new plans and resolutions ( which i wont tell ) i plan to usher it in a positive way ......................................................
goodbye

saddams execution

well everybody has given his views on the execution of saddam ...the dictator ....the tyrant.....the butcher and what not ....so even i thought i would jump in the bandwagon.....but i always saw the man differently.... i saw him as a ......FRIEND.....you guys might be surprised but yes ....... he was a friend ....... saddams iraq supported india when the world turned its back on india .......even in the centre of the big islamic region ....he was one tyrant who dared to make a secular state .........a leader who dared to stand up to the mighty super power ...... a leader who supported india on kashmir .......... he was never anti india .......yes he did kill many people but what about george w. bush who took his country not into 1 but 2 wars didnot achieve anything out of it just satisfied his ego ....even today ..right now as you are reading this amerian armed personnel are dying in iraq and afganistan......osama is out ...plannig and stragegising ........al-qaeda is strong , more dreaded and more advanced......world is not safe.......where has the war on terror led us????? has it been really won ??????? if yes who has won it ???????? we or the terrorists??????? today saddam is dead a ruler whose country was attacked for suspicion of having biological and chemical weapons ......which till date are not found ......nobody bothers about PAKISTAN the world dealer for nuclear warfare......the safe haven of terrorists .........the terrorism exporter of the world.......or north korea the nuclear power.......or even isreal whose nuclear programme is an open secret .......there is only 1 tyrant ......1 butcher........1 autocrat .......and that is USA..........the same country which funded war in iraq against russia ......the same country who made osama powerful.......the same country who supported saddam against his islamist neighbour iran and now the same country who supports PAKISTAN .......but soon there will be another war this time on pakistan........wars dont lead to solution......niether do boundries .........what do people achieve by making these mental barriers ..............nothing ...... though i dont support saddam and some of his policies but yes he was not as bad as he is projected .......may his soul rest in peace

the 100% factor

well today i understood the true meaning of success ........ dad gave me the car today ..... and he got out of it ...... the car was totally mine and he told me to drive in a path..... i did pretty well was good at turns ...even took the car forward and then when i came back he signalled me to stop..... i was full of confidence .....had done well on my on ...but at the last moment just before stopping i tht of taking the car to neutral and hit brakes a little slowly and the car streaked an autoriksha slightly ..... my dad said " tumhe brake lagani nahi aati "( u dont kno how to brake ) ..... it defined everything .....u shudnt rest until the work is fully over ...... success is 100 % not 90 ,92 or even 99.99% ..... i must say i have learned more through my mistakes and from life than thru any of my classrooms .

justice for jessica

ok enough of crappy writing most of us dont like reading abt each others lives . so now on to some serious stuff ........ yesterday finally after 7 yrs justice was delivered to jessica . it got me thinking about the power with the people , the correct use of the media and above all sanctity of our judicial system . manu sharma was given life imprisonment . but also it got me thinking how the people of our country can be intimidated , bought and become hostile . For 7 years manu sharma had used all his cards intimidation, money ,his dad's political power ....... al for saving himself but finally justice prevailed all because for the first time in country people understood what it is to be an Indian ..... to use ur rights when it is ur duty to use them . we in india have rights of speech , holding meeting , peaceful protests and above all democracy ...... our government is not over our judicial system . we have to use it all not for somebody else but for us . ne girl can be another jessica and ne son of a big baron can be another manu sharma . this incident also brought out the power of middle class . a class which is easily forgotten during elections , during page 3 parties , during all those long speeches ....... so much to the effect that our education minister ..... who just has to think about his election easily forgets them and introduces reservation for his vote bank . i would call this judgement the victory of middle class . but there were some things which saddened me too . ram jethmalani taking up a case to prove manu sharma innocent ....... it can still b forgotten considering jethmalani is a lawyer ....... but how could he stoop to such low level as to question the work of a dead person ? i had a lot of respect for him ....... but not now ...... not after he has shown that his job is not about bringing out the truth but to shadow the truth and to cover the murderer . also it took 7 yrs ...... god damn 7 yrs to deliver this judgement ......... 7 yrs is along time ...... a long wait ..... for justice.... for the family of victim...... for witnesses and most importantly for the country ........ witnesses like shyan munshi turned hostile ...... time paved in way for various conspiracy theories ...... but bina sharma's statement got in justice ......... i had hoped manu would get death penalty ........ but i was moved today when i heard sarah's statement that she wanted manu to get life imprisornment ....... it again got me thinking can 23 yrs in prison change a person ..... get his crime to a low level ....... i say no ....... our ecosystem would't let it happen .......... yeah i agree all of us have read that story from leo tolstoy ....... but you tell me how many people change ...... how many people have a heart change ....... very few ....... our society wont accept him ...... and even if it does ..... it wud be because of his power and money . finally i feel there is a need for revolution ..... yes a revolution to tell the people with power that the people of this republic are not sleeping nemore ...... their is an awakening ...... the awakening of the middle class ... a new dawn ...... and this middle class wont take ne more crap ........ thanks jessica ..... thanks for awakening these people...... whereever you are may your soul rest in peace.....
