Anna Hazare Zindabad, What About Others ??

Today Anna Hazare is the hero of almost every person who wishes India to be better place to live.. Ofcourse the people who will be harmed because of the Lokpal Bill are not with us... Let them not be coz anyways they are not the ones who want India to be better place, they just want their bunglows to be the best place to live no matter how many millions of them don't even have a shelter. (refer

So, as we all may perceive, it  makes us believe in the strength and the power of the media that within a few days complete nation was with Anna and the word spread through the entire nation like fire...

But, is this what the truth is, well it is not.. The major sources through which the news travelled, was not media, television and newspapers alone. I believe internet also played one of the major roles in this regard... The emerging influence of internet can be disussed later.. 
Anyways, the media had to pick up and highlight this movement because it was Anna who did it..
Many of you may not be knowing that Anna has been active in such activities from a long time.. Even if you know now, I bet you may not have been knowing about his activities before this whole movement. But, media was indeed well aware of Anna's past achievements, so they had to pick this up.. (refer 
And now, have a look at the newspapers, TV channels, it is full of the "Royal Marriage" or somewhere here and there about the developments in the 2G scam. It is difficult to find the developments in this Lokpal issue (though I am not saying that they are not there.), it is not highlighted and slowly and gradually they will be out of news completely (I wish this does not happen considering Anna's past record)...

But, is Anna the only one who fights for issues like this. There may be many many more Annas on hunger strike in some town, in some district, or in some far distant small village. But media is not going to bring news about them. You know why, oh come on, it is simple, they do not qualify you know.. Yes it is like a competition, and here they do not clear the qualifying round itself. 
They may not be fighting for a cause as large as Anna's, they may not be fighting in a place as big as Anna's (New Delhi), and the most important part; no one takes  you seriously if you do not have a good academic record ie good marks, good cgpa etc etc, isn't it; so in this case, they may not be having an exemplary past record in such activities... So, how can media highlight them ?? But, according to me, media does not need to look upon such factors before realising their true worth... I agree they may not be as good as Anna in so many aspects, but a news regarding these people is definitely much much better than the stupid stuff regarding catching ghosts, analysis of daily saops and what not...

Anyways, I would like to sign off here with this saying...

"There are only two forces that can carry light to all the corners of the globe... the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here."

Its high time media understood this...

    Phir Suna Emptiness Song Lyrics

    Download Here 

    Phir suna meethi meethi si woh dastaan.
    Jisko sunke meri zindagi mein hoti hai nayi subah.
    Pass aa, aake mujhse phir na door jaa.
    Pyari Pyari iss Raat ki Gehraaiyon me doob jaa.
    Hooo oo o o o o ..

    Aa.. Baahon mein bhar loon tujhko kaskar.
    Saare gum bhula de dekhe jab tu hanskar.
    Aa.. Baahon mein bhar loon tujhko kaskar.
    Saare gum bhula de dekhe jab tu hanskar.

    Ye raat dhal na jaye.
    samet lu main har pal.
    Aa milke sajaayein jo aane wala hai pal.

    Pass aa aake mujh se phir na door jaa.
    Pyari Pyari Is Raat ki Gehraaiyon me doob ja.
    Hooo oo o o o o...

    Mera Dil meri jaan tu.
    Mere saare armaan tu.
    Tere liye toh main chhod du
    Yeh Jahaan...

    Dear Me, :-)

    Dear Me,
    Hi…. how are you doing these days? I am very sorry for not writing to you for such a long time. I hope everything is going fine. I don’t even remember when was the last time I wrote to you. But you know what, even you have not contacted me in all these years…
    Anyways… I have always been thinking about you… Hey, do you remember the time when you were learning to ride a bicycle and you bumped into a person. You must have seen your face at that time. You were so scared as if you killed someone…hehe… And then you went all the way back to your home walking and weeping just to discover that the person was your dad’s friend and he was playing around with you. Actually he had already called your dad and told about it. And what about the the Diwalis? You sincerely used to take part in the prayers…. But actually praying Him to finish the ceremonies quickly so that you could begin your stupid ‘crackers bursting’…. I used to tell you a million times that its just not good for your health, but you just did not want to listen to me… And then.. you remember the result pretty well…
    Well, these are just a few of the memories which I will always cherish… My brain is just  full of such memories..I will always remember the good old times passed with you….. But now a days you don’t seem to be the same guy as you earlier used to be. Ofcourse a lot of things change with time, as they always say…. “Change is the only constant thing…”
    All these years I have seen you grow, I have seen you learn, have seen you experience, commit mistakes, then learn from mistakes, understand the things taught by this world, understand the things not taught by this world and what not… I am glad to meet this you with a larger domain of everything, say thinking, interests, working, friends and yes almost everything…. I do like this new you but I don’t know why I still miss you … You know, the old you…. The kind of person you earlier used to be, the way you used to think about various issues, the perspective you used to possess earlier, the way you used to talk, the way you used to hang around and various similar things… I am not saying at all that I don’t like this you but its just that sometimes I feel as if you are a stranger to me…
    And this is just not possible as you and me are identical, we are same…. So, how is it possible that you seem to be a stranger to me ? ….
     I am not sure if I am making any sense to you but I am very sure that if not today, one day you will surely understand what I am saying….
    Anyways, sorry to end the letter this way, leaving some unanswered questions for you…. But still…. Stay in touch…. You know we really need to communicate more… Oh by the way, happy holi .... :-)
    Take care…..

    Always with you,

    LIFE.... !!!

    Life, What is life ?

    The cry of a new born baby,
                    or the laugh of a kid,
    the energy of a youth,
                    or the ambition of a new graduate,
    the contentment of a happily married daughter's father,
                    or the faith of the grandparents...
    Why do we aspire something,
                    which will soon get destroyed,
    Why do we strive for someone,
                    who will soon be separated,
    Why are we happy about some possession,
                    which will soon be lost,
    Why do we love this life,
                    which will soon be demolished,
    Where do we find Life,
                    and where are we ought to,
    How much should we treasure Life,
                    and how much be detached to,
    These questions may never be answered,
                    if we can't answer,

    Life, What is life ?

    Entering the new decade.....

    Its been a while now, since I wrote anything. Well, my last post was in November, it doesn't mean I didn't come across anything worth writing, but I have been lazy....;-).
    Anyways, for me, the life has been kind of ok. Now is the time to fix things up. I have been very very lazy these days. But from now on I will try to manage well, coz I know it very well that if I lose this ongoing time, I will have to regret for it later. Everyone here is busy with something or the other and here I am sitting and wondering, may be I should have thought of some other career option..... hehe.... really computers are just not my thing...
    But, some people suggest that everyone goes through this kind of phase. We just need to stay positive and of course, start something worthwhile. This has not been my kind till now. The life here in the last couple of years has changed me a lot. I used to be a guy who used to plan almost everything before doing anything, and now this is me, I hardly remember, the last time I used my tiny diary. Yes, this is what engineering does to you... beware !!.. But at the same time I believe that it is fine, after all now I somehow seem to be learning to handle things at the last moment. But really doing that always is not satisficing....
    So, for me, I guess its time to change now, again.... And this time for my own good, I may sound selfish, but at times we have to be so. As they always say,
    "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody. "
    Bill Cosby
    Well, now I need to give people a second chance, and I will begin with myself now....
    Nothing much to write now...
    First Internal Exams coming up from tomorrow...
