I think it is really important to have an objective in life which is beyond survival and earning money .. more towards something worthwile giving back to society , help people at large do something which is selfless and not see a gain for one self which is anonymous . I have atleast read and see so many people doing good things but the way they are publicised , it is obvious the motivation is more to get some personal gain ie to show how good a person is ..

And some inspiration to really make me write ..
A lot of us tend to live our lives based on other’s choices, and not our own. You may have even experienced this yourself. Sometimes, other people feel as if they know what’s best for you. I know I have experienced this, particularly regarding my occupation. “Oh, you are probably going to end up being a Kindergarten teacher”, “You would be a great gym teacher”, “Have you thought about joining law enforcement?” As the days go by, all the suggestions are being piled up. I don’t pay attention to them, because I know where my heart wants to be.
Live your own life, and not how others want you to live it. Let them worry about their own lives. You know, deep down, in your heart, what you want to do, and when you want to do it. You’re the only one who knows what’s best for you.

Its so frustrating that to see a lot of people including me doing things which I dont want to .... and cannot really go out and do all I have always wanted. Whats stopping me in that case ? Responsibilities , money and all those material benefits. I always think .. what a great world it would be if every one had the ability and resources to pursue their dreams/aspirations and not thinking one bit of survival, very idealistic....such a small life and when I see those glum faces people struggling for survival for those 2 square meals a day it beats me, where are we heading to.
Here I am .. feeling locked in cage inside a drum 10000 feet under the sea ,, when will I perform the next Houdini act or perish, break the shackles .. go out .. break free .....

I suddenly realised what I have been missing .. writing on my blog. As the year comes to an end and I start reminiscing about the year gone by , I realise the mistakes, the trials and tribulations undergone.
The events of the last one week have been very eventful and has meee glued. Modi's victory in Gujarat has been outstanding, watching Taare Zameen par has been an experience, the Killing of Benazir Bhutto underscores the fact " as you sow so you reap", the elevation of Vikram Pandit as the CEO of citigroup. Each of these incidents have left a mark on the way future events would unfold in their respective fields.
I have realised my folly .. the half baked effort manifests in the way you work and are perceived. Every task undertaken should be complete ... I am back this time for real

This was amazing .. we were off to a party and this car suddenly comes on road a true blue bentley colored in the colors of a mobile shop and we started to chase the car and even took a video from a camera phone.
The noise accompanying the video may be a bit jarring..

There have been various incidents where the public at large has taken the justice system to the road. This has demonstrated the faith and trust the people have in the police apparatus and the judicial mis-system. As a society I think we are trending on a very thin line - the ordinary person has become violent and is ready to give up his/her pent up anger on the slightest of provocation... the security system is becoming impotent .. mostly concerned trying to satisfy the whims and fancies of their political masters. There seems to be no redressal forcing the people to take such drastic steps
I remember an incident a couple of years back as reported in the papers of a local rougue who was stoned to death in city of Nagpur by some 300 women who had lodged several complaints against the person without any success. Actually I had wished the same thing happened to the accused in the Nithari case ( though there was an attempt in the presincts of the court) - atlast the owner of the house has been chargesheeted.r>
There have been hundreds and thousands of cases in the public domain where the in-effectiveness of the police has been clearly layed tread bare. I find it so amusing a lot of times to see the constables and sub-inspectors on television trying to make a statement, they seem clueless most of the time and clearly not adequately prepared to handle crime. They are spectators alike.Most of the police stations are a dreadful places - in any case the ordinary citizen would not like to visit any situation.
I think there will growing instances of such incidents particularly in the hinterland where the rule of the land is different for different people. The atrocities faced by them have been going for ages. In the bigger urban centers due to the media glare the police is forced to act though there is hardly any follow up as nobody tracks the end result.
The signs are omnious and the government has to take urgent steps to cull this menace before it becomes endemic to our way of life.

As I had written some time back .. the average Indian is unconcerned what happens all around him or her till it affects themselves and with this attitude we go bonkers how the society, government has failed us. I had an experience last week which I think is relevant to share and kind of reinforces my above belief.
In the morning at the bus stop there were close to 100+ folks waiting for the bus, due to sheer number of people the foot path was covered . Couple of adventurous bikers were nonchalantly driving their bike over the foot path bringing inconvenience to all those standing plus in way breaking the law ( who cares in this country ) trying to get ahead of the traffic due to a bad jam.
Looking at the chances of people getting hurt I kind of protested with one of the biker who promptly went down on the road. There was this other person who started arguing and started using foul language when I came in front of his bike after couple of requests.The person suddenly got of the bike and threatened to hit me, I had no chance but to walk away as there was hardly any competition ( he was twice my size ).
Predictably none of the folks standing and watching the tamasha intervened and I am sure with so many people the person would have dared to even touch me. This is in spite of them being from my company. I was very disturbed .....still not sure I should have expected any support and anyways it was not worth fighting.
