Valentine’s Day –The day of love, passion, trust and commitment

valentine day stands for love, passion, peace , trust and above all committment to love

Valentine day is celebrated on February 14 every year. This day has become love festival and is celebrated with zeal and fervor by young people and youngsters. It may rightly be called the lover’s day. The day has gained enormous proportions among kids and teenagers in recent years. The youth enthusiastically enjoys the day be exchanging love feelings and greetings. This day has become embodiment of love, passion and commitment. Red rose are offered to lovers as were offered to deities in ancient days. Red rose depicts passionate love and passionate hearts of blossoming lovers: whose red hearts like red roses throb with love, dynamism and devotion. Red rose is favourite flower of goddess Venus, the Latin goddess of love. Love knots made by interlacing loops of ribbon, the pair of white doves, the green colored parrot, the vahana of Kamdeva all these symbolize love and affection.

Love is eternal subject of art, literature and paintings. Every artist had tried to define love in his or her own unique way but love is likea ocean who none could fathom, so love is still undefined and waiting for future generations to be defined. Not much has been written on single subject as on the subject of love. love is basic human emotion which his flowing eternally in the hearts of people and their arteries, since time memorial and centuries. Some walk in love, some walk through love, some walk over love. There are only a few fortunate in who love rides.

Wars have been fought for love and lover’s sake. Emperors have abdicated their mighty thrones rejecting all wealth and fame of world in choice of love. Such is the power and strength of love. Some unfortunate having obsessed with love committed either suicide or committed the heinous crime of murdering their love.
February 14, the day of love has special significance for all of us. It reminds us the piousness and innocence of love over lust and possessiveness. Love frees us from the bonds of possessiveness whereas the sensuousness binds us with worldly things and bodily beauty and figure. Love is that sweet fragrance that everyone wishes to smell on this day. People express their love and commitment for each other on this auspicious day
This day has mythological significance too.. This reminds us the eternal “love –stories” of cupid-psyche, Eros-psyche and Kamdeva and Rati and love symbolized in images and myths. Cupid was a mischievous winged youth whose arrow would pierce the heart of his victims. In ancient Greece he was known as Eros, young son of Aphrodite. To the Romans he was Cupid and his mother was Venus. The Indian version of cupid and Eros is Kamdeva. The three myths of cupid, Eros and Kamdeva symbolize the eternal emotional river of love passion which is flowing in every young and old heart since dawn of civilization. These myths also speak of eternal miseries/ anguish and travails associated with love emotion. Roses that are exchanged on this day symbolize both peace and war, Love and Forgiveness. White roses are for true love, Red roses stand for passion, Yellow for friendship and Black roses mean farewell.
When the gods of love –Kamdeva, cupid and Eros pertaining to Indian, Latin and Greek cultures see the modern youth in their full bloom dancing with vibrating energy and radiance, they must be remembering their own sportful, fanciful youthful days full of love and romance and offer their blessings to the modern youth. I too wish you all happy valentine day. Long live the memory of saint valentine in our hearts.

Educated – Uneducated

It is very easy to explain importance of education. No human beings are able to survive properly without education. By the means of education only one’s potential can be used to maximum extent. Education tells men how to think, how to work properly, how to make decision.Through educationonly one can make separate identity. It is most important in life like our basic need foods, clothe and shelter. With the beginning we learnt how to interact with others, how to make friends because of education only. As I remember when my parents had enrolled my name in school not only I learnt the alphabets and numbers but also I made friends, interacted with them with teachers.

With further development you were faced with the sense of competition and desire and other such emotions and feelings, you also learnt to control these emotions and feelings. And also teaches how to act in different situations. Education is not just restricted to teaching a person the basic academics, say computers, mathematics, geography or history education is a much larger term.

If you want to find out the impact of education on any individuality, you better do an intense observation to the ways of well-educated people and then compare them with an illiterate man. You would get a clear picture of the education and its accurate concept. Education is one of the important factors which formulate the persona of a person. Education is a productive and beneficial factor in a person’s life. It is everyone’s right to get. The training of a human mind is not complete without education. Only because of education a man are able to receive information from the external humanity, to notify him with past and receive all essential information concerning the present.

When one travels around the world, one observes to what an extraordinary degree human nature is the same, whether in India or Australia, London, Europe or America.
Conservative education makes independent thinking extremely complicated. If we are being educated merely to achieve distinction, to get a better job, to be more efficient, to have wider domination over others, then our lives will be shallow and empty. If we are being educated only to be scientists, to be scholars wedded to books, or specialists addicted to knowledge, then we shall be contributing to the destruction and misery of the world.

We may be highly educated, but if we are without meaningful combination of thought and feeling, our lives are incomplete and clashing. Education develops a meaningful outlook on life.

The individual are different but to accentuate the differences and to encourage the development of a definite type education is must.

Education is not just a matter of training the mind. Training makes for efficiency, but it does not bring about completeness. Knowledge and efficiency are necessary, which brings up by education.

Education should help us to discover lasting values; unfortunately, the present system of education is making us submissive, emotionless and deeply thoughtless.
Systems, whether educational or political, are not changed without explanation; they are transformed when there is a fundamental change in ourselves. The individual is of first importance, not the system; and as long as the individual does not understand the total process of himself, no system can bring order and peace to the world.


We get experience and receive training in our places of work, school or environment. After completing each day, we learn a new lessonwhich is usually applied to some area that is important to our lives. When we are involved in any sphere of life, we wouldn’t like to make any mistakes while moving along. We actually feel a form of defeat when we repeat at failing whatever we failed in the past or whatever we made a mistake at doing. It is also worthy to note that in every failure or mistake, there is a valuable lesson to learn. One vital thing to never forget is thelesson you could learn from every mistake.

In the vast field of science, experimenters make alot of tests inorder to prove their beliefs, convictions or findings to the world. Whatever they discover or theorise, is usually built upon later on. It is worthy to note that many inventors made hundreds or thousands of mistakes along the path to their great invention(s), like in Thomas Edison’s career. After inventing new knowledge or processes, they keep an inventory of all the relevant information or data that contributed to their alarming discovery. This type of procedure can be applied to the experiences and processes of learning we encounter in our daily lives.

Whatever we are doing in life, certain steps must be involved inorder to achieve an expected end but when the result ends up not being what we expected, it implies that we have deviated by making a mistake. We would have a better ride if we view our unexpected end as a mistake that we can learn from, rather than looking at it as a total failure. In this way, we will be helping ourselves to move in a more appropriate direction that can take us to our expected end. Generally, people often take steps, meet a challenge and conquer it by making changes that get them on the road that traverses towards their expected end. Lessons learnt from mistakes are extremely valuable because they aid you to totally avoid error in the future.

If you want to value life’s ways of learning, always make an attempt to identify the lessons in those things that get into our path and temporarily prevent you from achieving your expected end. Once anything gets into our way and deviates us from making our ends meet, we should pick up the lesson offered and find the nearest opportunity that can make us realize what we desire.

Yuvi ….Get well soon ☺☺

         The first thing that I did when India won the world cup trophy in 2011             was  to name my small gold fish ‘Yuvi’. I know it sounds a bit corny, but the reason I did this was because like Yuvraj, my little goldfish was a born fighter. He would wriggle his way into a school of fitter fish and one way or the other keep the bigger bullies at bay. Bullies would try to terrorize him into submission and never once did my goldfish act meek and swim away, instead he would swim into the wave of danger and grab the fattest worm dexterously. And with all the worms that he ate, Yuvi soon metamorphosed into one big strong goldfish and very soon, he was acting like the King of the tank. He deserved to. My goldfish lives up to his name, Yuvi – The Fighter and continues be the Man of the daily water tournaments with his fellow fish. Yuvi had grown from a minnow to a whale.

When India played England in the T20 world cup, the match had re-birthed a Hercules. Hercules stood in the middle of the ground and lambasted six balls in succession and made Suart Broad look even tinier than Stuart Little. But, that moment was not just about adding or appending a record, it was all about determination, grit, attitude and spunk. Qualities you always wish to find in our sportsmen but rarely do. And yet, finally, here was a man who would take the bull by its horns and had no qualms about it! Sledging does not work against Yuvi, you cannot mentally disintegrate the man. He will not take sledging lying down, no way, he will come at you and bundle you up with his bat, over the boundary ropes is where you have to kiss your pride goodbye. This is one man who will look at the opponent straight in the eye, bump his chest against him and make it amply clear who is in command. Many have been at the receiving end of his spirited countenance. Kevin Pieterson, Dale Steyn, Flintoff, Umar Gul have all received generous return gifts from Yuvi, tied up in a big red bow.  Even if Yuvi had his share of ups and downs, in form or not, fit or stout, the champion in him always remains, as his gallant spirit today does. Yuvi rose to the occasion at critical times, and he remains one you can easily call a ‘match winner’. Yuvraj represents and will always continue to represent the hopes, dreams and aspirations of thousands of youngsters who wish to become Yuvi, the valorous one.
The news today about Yuvi’s health has shattered his fans, me included. It must be an extremely colossal task for Yuvi to be battling an enemy that raises it’s head at the most unexpected of times. This is an enemy that needs to be decimated at the earliest and remains the most vicious of opponents that one has ever faced and yet we hope and pray that Yuvi will surpass the times. Yuvi’s intransigent spirit is his strength. Yuvi had tweeted that he wishes to take plenty of support from Lance Armstrong’s book “ It’s not about the bike: My journey back to life”. Yes, Yuvi, I agree with you, its not about cricket or about the bike or the profession that got one all the accolades, its always about the singular biggest gift that we all have received, the ‘gift ‘ of life, and we seldom open it. Now is the time to open the biggest gift and live life to the hilt. You are but the man of this tournament called life. Wishing Yuvi, the Fighter, a speedy recovery.
“Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.”

Facebook filed to raise $5 billion in an initial public offering.

This news is freshly humming in the surrounding..,,because Fb(As people generally know) raised $5 billion in a highly anticipated IPO.

Who knew that  a Harvard psychology sophomore,who wrote “Facemash,” a website that asked users to judge students’ attractiveness based on their dorm-directory photos,would grow that BIG,even mark zuckerberg didn’t knew that…..

But the question is why a student from a country which is regarded as the one with the most grey cells cant create this huge.?Is it the middle class mindset ,or the bunch of corruption ,or is every intelligent Indian is attracted to $DOLLAR$.Whatever may be the reason ,but according to a survey India has the highest number of budding entrepreneurs .Yes america produces Steve Jobs,Richard Branson,Bill Gates and many others..,,,,BUT IN THE 80’s AND THE 90’s..Now what,,every American boy talks about films ,porn movies,and other useless stuff.The Recession has hit America badly and now only India and china are there to tackle the whole recession scenario.

India has faced all the brutality from outsiders.America or Britain hasn’t. we know how outsiders invade our house,and beat ourselves in our own houses.That’s why the Government didn’t create a liberalisation in India after Independence,due to fear of another attack(ppst..  East India Company also came for buissnes means ,and then due to jealousy invaded it).

But liberalism came to India in 1991,which was too late.Or today Reliance would have been a global company and Dhirubhai Ambani would have been a global icon.Everyone knows that the marketing views of Chankya are referred even today and applicable in today’s scenario,and 40% of sillicon valley comprises of IITians and IIMites.

But this the story Indians don’t love india.Indians feel pride in bill gates but not in Narayan Murthy,not in J.R.D Tata….they fell happy when Obama gets elected as president but 27% dont even know who is our prime minister or president.NOW THAT’s NOT A WAY TO BECOME A BUDDING SO CALLED “””SUPERPOWER”””…

If you are an indian feel proud bro..,,,one day will come when an american will talk in hindi ,and say काश अमेरिका भारत जैसा होता 

BTW do you know,Sanskrit is considered as the mother of all higher languages. This is because it is the most precise, and therefore suitable language for computer software. ( a report in Forbes magazine, July 1987 ).

Agneepath 2012

That as usual airy colorful love stories of Dharma Banner have suddenly took a different turn & came up with Mr. Bachchan’s 1990′s Super Hit movie “AGNEEPATH” behind the curtains of 2012. Heartfelt applauds to our Sanju Baba (Kancha Cheena) & Hrithik Roshan (Vijay Dinanath Chauhan). Although 2012 AGNEEPATH has been a tribute or remake (whatever you say) to the 90′s film, but I believe that this time, this movie is a total Desi one when compared to the old one as the old Kancha (Danny Denzonpa) used to travel to Mauritius in the movie & the 2012′s Kancha is 100% attached to Mandwa’s soil in the entire 3hrs film.

Now, let’s dip into the storyline where the films talks about a small village called Mandwa. There stayed the principled father Dinanath Chauhan (Chetan Pandit) along with his wife (Zarina Wahab) & their son Vijay (Hrithik Roshan). Dinanath used to teach his son to fight life with perseverance & about the path of fire-Agneepath. Their happy lives got ruined with the emerge of Kancha Cheena (Sanjay Dutt) who was a drug smuggler. Vijay got completed smashed with the brutal murder of his father one devastating night in the village. His mother (Zarina Wahab) was pregnant. Both mother & son left Mandwa & came to stay in Mumbai where Vijay chose the dark way to reach Kancha & joined Rauf Lala’s (Rishi Kapoor) gang. Rauf Lala became the Godfather of Vijay & brought him up with guns & bloodsheds. And, in due course of time, Vijay became ready to take revenge from Kancha sitting in Mandwa. In Vijay’s entire journey, there was Kali (Priyanka Chopra), his beloved who stood by him in all his good & bad times. Finally, after 15years, Vijay geared up to stand head to head against Kancha Cheena & entered Mandwa for seeking vengeance.

Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath has all emotions, actions, revenge, and entertainment packed up together, so you need not think twice to enjoy the ride for 3hrs. All the characters have been given a new fresh look since it was very well known to the Directors that there will tons of comparisons with the old movie lined up. Karan’s work cannot be said as a work of a debutant director. Well done!!

The actual power in this movie lies in the hands of the director & the script writers who never loosened their grips on the flavor of the film. There is no such moment in the movie which seemed to be boring or extras to the viewers. There have been sequences between Vijay & Kancha face to face which numbed the whole audience. Such scenes are created by a fresh director is totally unbelievable.
The music of the film has been given by Ajay-Atul. Except Chikni Chameli (an item number by Katrina Kaif) which have the hit chartbuster, all other songs are melodious to listen. Even, in the item song of Chikni Chameli, Katrina looked sultry gorgeous & although it was added as a movie hype, the song was very well placed in the movie in the correct time unlike other films where all of a sudden a song pops up. Screenplay by Ila Bedi Datta and Karan Malhotra & dialogues by Piyush Mishra are a masterpiece flawless job done. Cinematography done by Kiran Deohans and Ravi K. Chandran is a class in itself.

Hrithik Roshan does justice to his role as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. His wonderful job have overflowed the theatres with applauds & praises of the audience. The best of all, Sanjay Dutt as Kancha has been excellent. The negative role has surpassed his previous negative roles in Khal Nayak & Vaastav this time. He has succeeded to create a hatred for Kancha amongst all heart & souls.

Even Rishi Kapoor has been impressive. Priyanka Chopra was perfect. Zarina Wahab also suited the role. Actually, each & every cast has been perfect & brilliant.

“Tum kya leke aye the,, kya lekar jaoge..reh jayega sirf ek sarv-shaktishaali, sarv-shaktimaan Kancha”Sanju Baba’s rib crashing dialogue with the threatening laughter & his scary bald look stands as the U.S.P of AGNEEPATH.

It has been a magnificent job done by Dharma Productions. 1990′s AGNEEPATH & today’s AGNEEPATH cannot be compared. Being the same root, they have emerged differently & both are splendid. Heartiest salute to Mr.Amitabh Bachchan and hats off to Hrithik.

Why Being An IIT’an Makes Difference

What is it that makes 3 letter word, a matter of life & death. When a student is just having the time of his life, beginning to enjoy the last 3 years of school, at the same time he is burdened with the thoughts of being an IITian. Sometimes, the thoughts come from within and mostly from the pressure of his family.

Does a 16 year old child give up everything & devote himself only to become an IITian??

I see a boy named Sam with a pair of thick glasses who keeps himself locked in a room and is seen out is when he is hungry.

I get excited each time the door bell rings or the phone trings. But this boy runs back to the room & prays to God, “Please not my friends again”, he is scared to go out & play. He believes a football or for that matter any game will act as a force, that is bound to distract, from achieving his goal.

I felt really sad for him, he needed some change, he was not like others. I thought he is little abnormal. How a simple game or simple outing can deviate a person’s thought. I could never imagine a person giving up everything for a goal.

Later, that evening I discussed this matter with an experienced person, he evaluated everything, then expressed his thoughts, and said. It is good to have a goal, a vision. Until & unless, you don’t have a goal in life the purpose of life fails.

The boy is quiet clever to having set a goal at an early age.

This 5 minutes conversation changed my way of perceiving things, earlier I use to make fun of little kids, who use to say I want to fly a plane, & would run away with a paper plane or a kid with a screw-diver & claim themselves as super engineers, but with the change in my perception, I realized, if you really wish for something, it is bound to fall under your umbrella,

Thinking of being an IITian is not impossible or tough. A single thought of becoming big, introduces you to a life which has a goal, a purpose to live for.

Now, when I look at Sam. I truly appreciate his efforts. The best part about IIT or any competitive exam is, it teaches discipline, even if you don’t get through it, the time of preparation, is whole lot of learning experience. Do not just value the end result, work hard, stay focused as nothing stands in front of a willing heart & strong determination.


Every day I try to forget ‘Aamir‘ and every day, the film seems to come up in discussion, the papers or as a TV spot. For over a week, I’ve been trying to tell myself, it’s only a film. But try as I might, I cannot calm down the negative vibes it has evoked in me.

The fact that it is shot in Chor Bazar, Bhendi Bazar, Dongri, the areas that I grew up in, where I still have family, where my family still has family and friends, makes it difficult for me to view the film objectively. In my childhod, these areas were mohallahs, not ghettoes, as they have become now.

And I wonder, how did these traditional community enclaves become ghettoes? Is it due to overcrowding and a breakdown of infrastructure? Is it due to the takeover by communal and criminal elements? Or is it due to a changed perception of a community?

The director of ‘Aamir’ professes that the film is the story of a common person, and how easily a common man today can become a victim of elements beyond his control.

The dangerous part of the film is how every common man from Andheri to Dongri, in fact, seem to be part of the terrorist network, connected to Pakistan, actively a part of the terrorist nexus, or at least passively aware of it. From the taxi-driver at the airport to the seemingly friendly prostitute in the dingy lodge in Dongri, from restaurant owner to waiter to STD phone booth woman, from the manager of the lodge, petty gangsters to junk-yard workers, and countless other nameless, unidentified faces, they form a malevolent, hostile and inescapable trap for any innocent.

‘Aamir’ perpetrates the worst myths about Indian Muslims.

1. That most of them live in ghettoes.
2. That they live in filth and squalor.
3. That they do nothing to come out of it.
4. That they eat and butcher meat, and that enhances their inherent violence.
5. That they are more attached to the larger Islamic community rather than their own country.
6. That they get a huge amount of money from outside to fund their terrorist activities here.
7. That most of them are connected somehow with the terrorists or the underworld. Actively or passively.
8. That an outsider cannot say who or who may not be involved.
9. And of course, that anyone, who makes any attempt to get out of the larger community will still at the end be subsumed by it, becoming part of the terrorist nexus due to circumstance, or become a victim to it.

i want everyone to know….

Every terrorist is not a muslim…..

Every muslim is not a terrorist…..

These are as absurd as the myths that all Gujaratis are right-wing Hindu fundamentalists, all Biharis are thieves and crooks, all Maharashtrians are lazy, unfriendly and insular, all Goans are amiable drunks and all Sikhs are either fools or trouble-makers.

The trouble with the film is that it is very well-shot. Anyone, who has anything at all to do with film-making in Mumbai will know how difficult it is to execute a shoot like that, given the crowds and traffic here.

That combined with the narrative form of a man chasing against time to save his loved ones, in fact, does not give any space for the protagonist Aamir, to be well-defined as a character. The one dialogue that makes his stand clear, that he believes that each person can make their own destiny, that they can pull themselves out of their circumstances, gets lost in the thrill of the chase. And of course, by the countering dialogue of The Bad Man who asks if this is the destiny (that is trying to save his family) is what he has chosen.

The Bad Man however gets enough time to repeat ad nauseam his stand on the Muslim issue, spending a lot of precious time haranguing Aamir about Islam, his responsibilities to the community, his infidelity in having a Hindu girl friend, not caring enough to send money to fund terrorist activities, and so on. To the extent, that it gets one wondering whether The Bad Man is more keen on teaching Aamir a fundamentalist lesson in Islam, or he wants him to get on with the job.

Was The Bad Man seriously hoping to convert Aamir to the terrorist cause, by kidnapping his family, having him wade through shit, not letting him drink water (a very un-Islamic thing to do, by the way, because not giving someone a glass of water when they ask for it, is tantamount to a sin in Muslim households), having him beaten up??

In the same vein, it is not clear why Aamir, an innocent and reluctant man, has to be emotionally blackmailed into putting a bomb in a bus, after a complicated, convoluted journey through the city, when it would be the easiest thing in the world for any one of The Bad Man’s minions to walk into a crowded bus with a bomb, leave it there, and walk away, without any trace.

But of course, The Bad Man is a dark, bald, fat, meat-eating monster who shuns light, and sits in a dark room all day. He exudes menace when he holds up a kid, and then proceeds to beat up a toy monkey. So perhaps, one can expect only illogical planning from him.
