Dear Man

Dear Man, how much do you want?

How much would it take for a man to stop being an animal and control himself? Any idea?

One moron says eating chow mien is the root cause of all sex-related crimes in this country! The other cartoons who are supposed to be protecting and policing, say girls who wear short skirts read it out aloud “come, do something to me”! And then we have two “authoritative” ladies crying and sobbing! Why if I may ask? Why do you cry? And what do you cry for? Can you ensure the same kind of security to all the women in this country the way you and your daughters have access to? Of course not! You rape this country, are a burden on us and then make a mockery of our sisters and daughters? All of you can just shut your mouth. The system needs to be cleaned—of you people! Go drown yourself in your own tears.

Girls are being raped by their own grandfathers, fathers, brothers, and friends, in their own houses, in cars, buses, jeeps, parking areas, during the day and in the night. What is common? The MAN, who originated from the woMan! Ironical, but it is the bitter truth.

There is chilly powder at home, but she did not anticipate her own man to rape her! (Most women are not even aware of the term called marital rape!)

They teach her martial arts in school, but she did not expect her grandfather to overpower her!

She does not go out after dark, but fell prey to her own lover in broad day light!

She does not wear “inviting” clothes, but the alcohol didn’t tell him otherwise!

Isn’t it high time that men introspect and realize that even if a woman is very beautiful and inviting, you are supposed to merely appreciate and keep distance? Don’t you roam around bare chestedsans a shirt, with your lungis rolled above your knee level, ride two-wheelers in a flying dhoti, flashing your ‘ long thirsty tongue’ on the streets while peeing? How many times have you been raped?

I go back to my question, how much money would keep you in control of yourself or pay for your mental treatment?

 

 

She is dead…

Yes, she is dead…beware!

As I write this to you, I know for sure that she has met with a fatal fate. The day they found out about her association with “XX”; they killed her—their frown killed the very soul of an innocent and harmless being that was preparing itself for the nasty world out there. They could not kill her hope…

But she didn’t give up—her biggest fault. They called her a fighter, what use? She had the most infectious smile which they managed to kill—with their indifference. They could not kill her hope…

Without a soul, sans a smile, walking mile by mile, she was helping them meet their goals. They had the heart to kill her once again—with their attitude. Her dreams were crushed but she dreamt of their triumph, her compassion continued to survive…

Soul-less, smile-less, dream-less—the log continued to live yearning for life, for love, for caressing and a warm embrace.  But it was his lust that fell for her, her starved body, her ailing heart, her fake smile, her pensive eyes…like a ravening animal, he ripped her apart.

How can she live now? She did, like a climber in the yard, she looked for support. They killed her again—by simply shunning her.She continued—drawn back by her responsibilities.

Enough, you have to die sweetheart, bury yourself. Conceal the innocence, bury that love and compassion, it is too late in the day for hope… just entomb the attitude dished out towards you. We need to kill her; she needs to emerge from the ashes, like a phoenix. She is dead but now what shall live on, beware of it!

Jab Tak Hai Jaan

anushka-sharma-in-jab-tak-hai-jaan-movie-4

The movie did not inspire me much to write anything, but the character of Akira, a Discovery Channel reporter, being played by Anushka Sharma did.

There is an obvious connect for I belong to the same community—media—and she rightly portrayed the dare devil attitude, the macho girl image and the do-or-die zeal. She is almost real, blurting out abuses, befriending strangers and crossing the danger line into the ‘no entry’ area despite a warning.

For the uninitiated, there is a scene where she is asked by Samar Anand (Shah Rukh Khan), the Bomb disposal expert, to keep distance from the scene of crime. However, the chirpy and over enthusiastic Akira who has been filmed in hot pants in Ladakh’s topography at dipping temperatures and inside army camps, lands right in the lap of the bomb endangering ten other important lives. Was I itching to spell out the stupidity of the reporter?

Yes, indeed yes, because I see her clones all around me in real life. Irresponsible journalism has been the order of the day. Let us look at the latest case, that of Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, who was captured by the Indian force during a three-day killing rampage allegedly carried out by gunmen from Pakistan.

That reminds me, media today is quick to pronounce judgments and that we have forgotten the importance of words like “allegedly”, “reportedly” and “seemingly”. I would like all of us to revisit these words just in case people start revisiting words like libel, slander and defamation. Never mind, but one fine morning all of us woke up to the news of his execution. Thank God else we would have subjected the people of this country to stories like, what does he eat, how much does he eat, who is the hangman, what is his background, how much does he earn blah blah blah.

I understand that we have totally lost our credibility when it comes to the entertainment beat. We religiously dish out rumours and say a “small little birdie told us!” How easy, isn’t it? Read the top news in the search engines, Karishma Kapoor’s marriage has come to an end. I wish to ask you sire journo, were you invited to a star-studded divorce do? Anyhow, let us get back to Kasab. Why are we dedicating so much of air time and print space on him?

Probably if we give some of this free air time to our manufacturers and producers, the economy will find its ignition. More so, even if we are why are we being so irresponsible? Do we really need to send out details like who executed him, what did he eat, what were his last words, ah did we forget to write about the jail was it according to Vaastu? There was a reason why the Government kept the news a secret. Did we have any reason to send the updates to other extremist outfits (kindly note, not terrorist or militant outfits)? Who will be responsible if they now seek to take revenge? Do we always have to be so LOUD always? Let us not hide behind “we are not afraid”, “we need to tell the truth” dialogues. My foot! What if Pakistan looking at our ugly dance of death, decides to execute Sarabjit Singh? By the way, that reminds me, he would have secretly crossed the border long back had we not created a hue and cry. Just understand, we are like fools rejoicing the death of a foot soldier being controlled by a remote. The day we have the remote and the mastermind both, we can break into jigs right in the middle of the street, and only if the rules of civilisation permit.

Why are we digging the graves of the past so hard and deep? Think about those who lost their loved ones in the unfortunate incident? They probably wanted some quite time and not a “how are you feeling now” session.

High time we introspect and understand what the role of the fourth pillar of the society is. Rather, can we act a bit more sensibly? Shall we get back the to the Robert Vadra case, to the 2G or Coal scam? We have been successfully deviated from the more important things. Instead of getting used or rather misused in the hands of a few powerful people for their own benefit, we should look at the larger picture. The role of the media is not to run flowing towards news “created” by those in power. Ah yes, about the movie that inspired to me churn out this gibberish, I wish to meet all those who reviewed it and said “must-watch” or “watch atleast for the sake of SRK or Yash Chopra”.

I wish we could hang the brownnosers and sycophants to begin with.

How to protect: My money and business both!

It is moral relativism at its worst in this article:–

http://www.firstpost.com/world/rajat-gupta-does-not-deserve-jail-for-an-ill-defined-crime-501976.html

I need help here. Say I own 100 shares of say Maggi (yes, the noodles brand). And about another ten of my friends also own shares in the same company. Now, you work for Maggi and are a close confidant of a friend of mine, say Iggam. You tell a top secret to Iggam that Maggi is going to stop manufacturing noodles as it has to save money to manufacture cars over a period of five years.

Iggam is very intelligent and he understands that the shares of Maggi will fall after it announces this. So, he decides to sell all his shares and make profits. He booked a profit of say Rs 200. He then informs his entire family, friends and then his office colleagues. Suddenly, everyone is selling Maggi shares. The shares of Maggi fall down, I think it is a good opportunity, so buy some more shares at low prices.

Now, a week after this, Maggi announces does announce that it will stop manufacturing noodles and switch over to cars. The shares fall all of a sudden and there is panic selling.

This might not be a classic example of insider trading, but Iggam did benefit from information not available to the public in general. Don’t you wish to slap him? Not just him but he person leaking information to him should also be slapped! Slapped with punishment!

That is exactly what US District Court Judge Jed Rakoff did to Rajat Gupta, India’s Wall Street poster boy. The former Goldman Sachs board member had it all in his resume, sought after companies and enviable jobs. However, last year he surrendered before the FBI over insider trading charges. Rajat’s friend Rajaratnam of Sri Lankan origin brought about his downfall. Rajaratnam has been convicted for being the mastermind being one of the biggest insider trading scams of the US.

While Rajat has been awarded with a two-year sentence, his billionaire friend shall be behind the bars for the next 11 years.

Now what wrong did the court do? If position holders resort to breach of trust and a few others earn at the cost of the stakeholders, they should be punished.

With this judgment, faith will be restored in all the investors that no one can dare to take their money for granted for long, Justice, even though delayed, is not denied.

I understand that humans succumb to emotions, Rajat was an orphan and made it big in life, that he is a self-made man (but self-destroyed too!), that his parents were respectable professionals, and that he is of Indian origin might all help build an emotional case in his favour.

However, an accountant, a doctor and a journalist should never go wrong, more so ethically; if they do they are answerable to many out there.

I can protect my money, how do I protect my business – of writing?

Why are we not safe?

It you look up etymology, Haryana could possibly mean “The Abode of God” (in Sanskrit Hari means God and Ayana means home”. This Abode of God has witnessed 20 rapes in 40 days! I do not know why I had to start my reportage with this, but it keeps the leer on my face alive.  

At an age when I out discovering the mysteries of the world, I was left wonderstruck by my neighbours.  After showing all possible symptoms of being a miser family, they threw this grand party celebrating the birth of their son—20 years after their marriage. With two teenaged daughters in tow, who were more than happy to “finally have a brother” they “faced” the society and danced their hearts out that day. I do not remember attending even a single birthday party thrown for these girls. Anyhow, I was just not happy that day. With my brother just three years apart from me, I grew up to believe that parents get you first and then get you a sibling. Blame it on me being really young back then, but I remember spending sleepless nights over the thought that even I might have to put up with another younger brother and watch my parents embarrass me with their dancing skills.

My parents did not teach me things like caste, creed, religion et al. It was much later in life that I found out that this embarrassing family traced its roots to Haryana. Even today, I can hear the reverberations of the slap that was planted on my face by my mother when I mocked at the fact that they are from Haryana, an explanation for their behaviour.

But dude, tell me one thing, what do I make out of a state that has a highly skewed sex ratio of 877 women for every 1000 men? Where a son is witness to the atrocities the mother goes through in the hands of his drunken father every night? Where the brother grows up with facts like his sister will not be given milk to drink or would eventually be dropped out from school? Where families believe that girls are a burden? Where brides are burnt down for not bringing “enough” dowry? Where girls are killed in the womb itself? Slap me again if you want to, but answer my questions. How on earth do you think, such families can bring up decent young men? Why will such men not commit a heinous crime like rape? It is committed daily, yes, within the family, just that it goes unreported. Then why on earth is the entire world creating a big deal out of it when they go raping women out there? Oh well, well, because the rest of the world believes in installing some sort of rights with the hands that rock the cradle.

It is a fact that there are very few young girls in Haryana to match with the number of unmarried young men. Hence, they go out equipped with their instruments—dead brains and frustration!

But mind you, it is not endemic to the state of Haryana; it in fact is epidemic to the whole of the nation.

Damn you families who cannot teach your sons to respect girls. Instead, leaders who should bow in shame, come up with suggestions like marry off your daughters the day they attain puberty! Mr Sube Singh, the honourable member of the Khan Panchayat, we heard you. Nice suggestion. One doubt though, one of the sons of your land raped a six year old. Should we have married the innocent child at birth? What about this married young woman, wearing a saree and a sleeved blouse, sindoor, bindi, mangalsutra and bangles, who was gang raped? Was her voice was too meek to be heard by your deaf sons? Marriage did not guarantee her anything Mr Singh!

And which bloody politician was it who said “rape is mostly consensual”? Beware fella, buy yourself some brains, else bury your brawn! Soon a day will come when women will take over from here. Shall we start pulling down lungis of men who roll them up too hight? Or pinch men who pee out there in the open with needles? Or blind you with acid if you even dare to look up at any girl? Better still, just march you down naked on the streets for stepping out after dark?

What is it with victims being blamed? Do you not feel that it defies logic? Probably this is what we can expect from Khaps like Jitender Chhatar who was quoted by Times of India, a national daily, saying “”To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents. Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts.” So it is China at work this time? To eliminate competition from the beauty pageants, it is dumping discarded strands of unhealthy white wheat chowmein on the Holy sands of India so that we have a high number of raped girls who are dejected to even participate?

Just shut up and learn to respect women—your mothers, daughters, sisters—teach the same to your sons.  

We still rock cradles, it will not even take half the effort to rock your world.

 

What privilege are you talking about?

Samajwadi Party MP Shailendra Kumar has moved a privilege motion seeking action against people making derogatory remarks against MPs. What privilege are you talking about Mr Shailendra?

 

I am not a Baba Ramdev loyalist.

But Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday courted yet another controversy by saying that murderers, looters and illiterate people are sitting in the Parliament and invited the fury of the parliamentarians.

However, what privilege do you need Mr Shailendra?

Okay let us look at it from a logical angle; hope they did teach you some logical reasoning back in school/college.

Mathematically, if I say most of my employees do not come on time, I doubt if the one who does come on time can file a case against me. So if someone says that many of our Parliament Members are illiterate, thieves, thugs, rapists and murderers – how is the statement wrong? Try denying the fact and statistics will fail you across length and breadth of each category in isolation; we are not as yet getting into the collective figures.

Again my question, why do you need any privilege? This is exactly where people like you are failing. Do you know how much I/my family contribute/(s) towards the GDP of the nation? Do you even know what the GDP of our country is and how we arrive at it? For sure not by offering free internet, telephone, rail and air travel to the entire family or wasting money on parliament sessions just to witness a walk out of sorts!

Look within and you will not muster the courage to look at the mirror.

Just get one thing straight, you have been elected to serve the nation the way I serve my company. Do not make a murky business out of it. We as the citizens of India are busy earning money and name and fame for the nation. But that does not imply that we just do not have the time to shut you up. I suggest you get back to you work if it has been allotted. What is being paid to you in my hard earned money that I pay to you in the form of taxes and you take it home as salary. Be ashamed of yourself!

I am not circulating any spam mail or any forward. Check out how you drain the country’s resources here: — http://parliamentofindia.nic.in/ls/intro/p8.htm

What have you done for the country?

Try and mend your ways before we chuck you out. If you cannot perform, then just bid a good bye and get lost.

And yes, most of you are illiterate and unpolished and convicted against whom multiple cases are running. And try denying this fact.

TO FELLOW CITIZENS: IT IS A SHAME THAT WE ELECT SUCH MEMBERS!
