WHYY??

Gone are those carefree days when there were no mobile phones, when there existed no cuthroat competetion, a pressure-free world, those days of vewing T.V serials with family and going for an ice-cream was an oppurtunity not to be missed. Gone are the days when we used to wait for Sundays for our favoutite T.V shows, when kids used to wait for evening games, when mom used to call for evening milk, when eating junk was a "party", when life was simple and hassle-free.

Suddenly evrything changed. Life became complex and difficult. Everyday is a new struggle to sustain. Looking back to those simple days is so refreshing. They say we are progressing towards a bright future but why do eveything seems in dark to me.

The days of Dekh Bhai Dekh, Zabaan Sambhalke, Malgudi Days, Tu Tu Main Main, Shreemaan Shreemati, Chandrakanta, Jungle Book, Ramayana, Chanakya, Hum Log, Reporter, Aaj Tak (Half an hour news show) have now been replaced by super glam and how-so-unreal reality shows (Dadagiri, Roadies, splitsvilla, Rakhi Ka Syamvar, Is jungle se mujhe bachao, Bigg Boss etc etc etc), super dramatic news channels where anchors look nothing less than jokers spreading all the superstitions in name of tradition and culture (Kaal kapaal mahakaal, vaardaat, special reports on re-births etc etc etc). How bright is this future? What are we serving to our kids?

Why are we accepting such shit dishing out by media channels, why do such shows have high TRP's (tragedy is that who says TRP is yardstick for success of any show/channel) ,why news channels don't have original news stories, why PR News is given  priority, why do i see what Aishwarya Rai is wearing on her wedding when there are much more important things going around the world, why shall i see where American President went for a walk with his wife when major parts of the country are under flood and famine, why do i listen to hindi movie songs on news channels when we have special music channels dedicated into this business, why do i see Carol Gracious's costume malfunction the whole day when there is so much happening on international-political front, what benefit i will reap in knowing about the BOLLYWOOD KHAN's rivalry and to my horror - WHY DO ELECTRONIC NEWS CHANNELS HAVE SPECIAL SHOWS DEDICATED TO TV PROGRAMMES?

WHY?? WHY?? WHY??

List of questions is endeless. More than an answer (which would be sugar coated with marketing and financial angles) from media owners, i want them to behave in a responsible manner, to adhere some kind of self-regulation and become more credible news providers. If media wants the respect as fourth pillar of the democracy (a self proclaimed honour and is not mentioned anywhere in The constitution of India or in any lawbook) then media owers have to change their policies of news selection and presentation. Change is welcome but if it destroys the basic structure of a particular instution, then it should be amended on immediate basis by the think-tanks of the organisation.

God bless media..... and GOD BLESS THOSE AT RECEIVING END!!

DREAMS

To create a new world and an exciting life one needs to be full of enthusiasm and creative ideas to fulfil their long cherished dreams. Making your dreams come true should be the only motive of human life and one should strive hard to accomplish their dreams. Every individual is different and this makes every individual’s dreams and aspirations unique.

Lets pledge to conquer our dreams and get into the dreamland with the dreams that we see through open eyes i.e. our desires and passions that we want to fulfil. Love is life – as said by many saints and philosophers, lets dream about spreading love around the world, lets dream about world that only give and take love, affection and loyalty. Let’s not hate others and lets not be selfish to others.

Dreams derive from the need gap and social structure in which an individual is born and brought up. For some it is to attain heights and for some it is to successfully gather the basic necessities of life for their families. Nevertheless, dreams always come true of those who believe in fulfilling the dreams. Dreams create an imaginary, dynamic and virtual world around us from which one should derive motivation and insipration.

He is there within!


Last night while sipping last cup of bournvita for the day, i was wondering if god really exists. Who is god? What is the supreme power? Why do we pray? Is god up there in skies or mountains or in deep oceans? Where is it? Is it he or she? how to recognise him? Questions like these were pondering my mind throughout while i was having my bournvita. With rain pouring outside,the magical smell of dust hypnotised my mind and i stepped out of my room .Out there was a beautiful scene, rain drops falling on trees were adding to the noise of lighting and cloud thundering. The beautiful view made me realize that god really exists. Then why it is so that nature is only there on our planet.

There are hundreds of other planets in the universe, then why is it so that unique combination of life supporing elements is only there on our planet. The biggest question that caught my mind is that who made us, the human beings, the animals of different kinds and the beautiful nature. There was an Adam & an Eve, the first form of human life on Earth, but from where they originated? What made them attracted to each other. I'm quit sure there were no scientists, scholars, philosophers at that point of time who can explain things with their logics.

How did the first creature originated. Definately there is some supreme power which controls us, which makes us believe that there is someone up there. We all have conscience also called as voice of inner soul which makes us differentiate between right and wrong, which abstain us from committing mistakes. The core reason which makes us pray to god is that he should be happy on us and bless us with all the happiness and luxuries of life.

Since our childhood, we hav been told by our grandpa's and grandma's that we should always do right things in life, should lead our lives with truth and honesty. If we will do things that our inner soul will allow, we will be succesful and will be satisfied and happy in our life. All these learnings are nothing but the inner voice.

Doing right things in life, working hard and honestly are the virtues of good people with beautiful soul. Those who follow the simple rule of truth and honesty and listen to their inner voice lead a happy life and we say that god has bestowed his blessings on him. While the others who forgets the learnings of childhood suffer from unsatisfied life, which makes them unhappy in life, and hence lose mental peace.

The crux of the matter is that one should listen to the voice of soul. God is within, we should listen to him. Many of us tend to ignore the voice of inner soul, which means that we are turning our ears deaf towards God. When he is right there with you then why to find him outside. He is inside all of us, all is required is to recognize him and respect him!! The only way to find him is by finding true being of ourselves , this is the only way we can communicate to him.

लाइफ...




Life is like a time, moving ahead
without waiting for anyone.

Life is like a jungle
Full of sweet and wild dangers

Life is like a traffic signal
changing continuously

Life is like a river, flowing continuously
taking the particles of all the joys and sorrows with it

Life is like a wicket
no one knows when it fall

Life is like a sailing boat
between the high and low tides of sea

Life is like a business
full of profits and losses

Life is one such word in dictionary
that is full of “life”.

Life gives us what we want,
we don’t give it anything
come let’s make our life meaningful.

L-O-V-E



Some say it is god’s creation
Some say it is man’s innovation

Some say it is attraction
But some say it is infatuation

For some it is a crush
Some say it is must
Some say it keeps you at first
But some say it throws you in dust

Some say it happens at first sight
Some say it happens after first fight
Some say it makes you shine bright
But some say it keeps you at height

For some it is a game
For some it is insane
For some it is a heart in jail
But for some it gives you bail

Sometimes you find it
Sometimes you win it
Sometime you lose it
But sometimes you urge for it

This four lettered word “LOVE”
Begins at “L” and ends at “E”
Takes the hatred and give the peace
Makes one like the life of ease!

Welcoming myself

So, I'm finally here!! New to blogging but have heard a lot about it। Heard from friends who already have blogs or from those who want to blog but could not or from those who just use it as a fashionable 'in' word. With new in internet age approaching at a jet speed, I found it necessary to start posting my thoughts online, to create my own personal virtual world of thoughts and opinions. Or may be to quench my need of being heard, not by many but atleast me.

So, I welcome myself to the new age process of sharing views with the world virtually. Hailing into the new flanged omnipotent world of blogging, I would hope that it would be an enjoyable and exciting experience for me.

Wishing myself all the LUCK!!
