On a given day

On a given day

“Whatever that exists in this World, exists in this story and whatever that doesn’t, it either exists anywhere”. This was Vyasa’s quote on his book ‘Jaya’ widely popular as Mahabharata. Obviously he was talking about the knowledge and wisdom that the story has to offer and also about the intricacies of humans and their relationships. Seldom he would have thought that the same is applicable to India today. If someone consolidates all the news about India on a given day,…

Ah! The Bliss..

Ah! The Bliss..

I am proud that I share a commonality with this guy. We are both born as Indians and this could happen only in India. Its been long time since I have heard anything this outstanding. More than a protege this kid’s voice is golden and godly. Hemanth is a little champ performing on stage for ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champions’. Watch it for bliss. Note: Catch the song at 7:09 [dailymotion id=xarapp&related=0]

Jai Hind

Jai Hind

One song that always fills tears in my eyes and brings those glimpses of black and white pictures of freedom fighters ruthlessly beaten by atrocious British soldiers. aye mere vatan ke logon zara aankh mein bhar lo paani jo shaheed hue hain unki zara yaad karo qurbaani Rendering her sweet voice mixed with the pain and agony of those great people who put their lives in the fore-front of freedom struggle, Lata Mangeshker is ever successful in bringing those memories…

Pig, Politics & More..

Pig, Politics & More..

Thanks to TV-9 free telecast (for time-being) in USA on Dish Network. Lately I have been watching bits and pieces of the 24/7 News channel and I am literally shocked to see of what is happening back in India. A pig was doing rounds in a temple and people have decided to build a temple for that creature as they think that it is ‘divine’ now. I guess we need to send all the stray animals in India into temples…

The four fingers

The four fingers

There is a saying in our tradition, if you point one finger there are 4 left, pointing oneself. I felt sad at people pointing fingers at the Indian team failing to go to Semi-Finals. The so called supporters suddenly withdrew the support and started raising their voices and filled up the blogs with their analysis. Dhoni admits mistake, write most of the columnists and people started finding mistakes in the strategy. Unfortunately you would only find those flaws when you…

Thank You Sachin

Thank You Sachin

For the first time in life, I have not followed Cricket. Mumbai scars will never ever fade away. After talking to my friend over the phone last night, I was then aware of what was going on as he mentioned Sehwag’s outrage. Today morning, after a long break from Cricket, I opened up the browser to see that Sachin’s century has won a game for India. Nothing, nothing in this world would have made me feel consoled, be it my…

India, read Mahabharata again..

India, read Mahabharata again..

Indians need to read Mahabharata again. They forgot who they are and what they are, totally. The politicians has made the country a mockery of rotten policies and turned the country into a hub of cash generating ATMs for themselves. Read the Mahabharata again…. Outraged by the Mumbai attacks, I could not help but to spit my anger at someone and the best fit for my bill are us, we Indians. Have we forgot what was taught to us, have…

..and the war continues..!

..and the war continues..!

Counting days between cricket matches has become my hobby, a special mention of India and Australia on either side can only add desperation. Now that the counting mode has shifted to few hours, a battle between the titans of Test Cricket is shortly underway. I do not care the result as my best guess always favors India, relentlessly in a stronger orthodox style. Everyone loves to see a champion fall hard, more so when the opponent is our own team,…

Chanakya’s Wisdom

Chanakya’s Wisdom

Let me tell you something up front, this article is not about History or Chanakya in particular. Its just that we are turning a leaf of that great genius and quoting it here. When Chandragupta was young and being trained by Chanakya, on their way a thorn was stuck in Chanakya’s leg. Being a person who does not loose any opportunity to teach Chanakya, he quickly grabbed the pinching thorn by his hand out of his leg and did not…

Compromise

Compromise

Few incidents would have left scars to my memories and unfortunately more and more are expected to surface. I am deeply saddened and feel very sorry for all those who are effected by bomb blasts in India. Sitting thousands of miles away, writing a blog would be the easiest thing to do, a selfish act of consolation and a lucid act of healing. But, I think that at least I can pay my respects to all those innocents who are…
