Mr. Sibal…Are you reading this?

Just as ‘ Facebook protests’ give rise to democratic protests in Russia against rigging of elections by Mr Putin, the Indian Government seeks to curtail the reach and the voice of individual protest in the world’s largest democracy.
So what’s the Government (not only in India) afraid of? It’s afraid of the unknown. Social Network is a game changer in the playing out of democracy, and the Government (and Governments all over the world) are caught unawares. All political parties, their elected representatives, whether they sit in opposition or in Government have spent their political lives based on a set of parameters they have come see as sacrosanct. Moral or immoral, those parameters are the only ones they understand. The world has changed beneath their feet.
Yes there are video’s posted, or content posted on the Internet that are immoral and against the law. That encourage racial conflict.  But I believe the platforming companies are pretty good about removing such content.  All you have to do is report, and if there are enough complaints then that content will be taken off. You only have to look at how quickly the Internet companies and Governments all over respond to child pornography on the net (least in India actually).  But hey ! if there is something against a politician (say a video) and that gets 10 million odd hits in a week, and thousands of comments, does that not say something about how the community feels ?  To try and stop that is completely undemocratic, is it not ?
One last thing.  Censorship on the Internet is only possible if you shut the Internet down.  Google, Facebook and Twitter are only vulnerable because of their size and desire for valuation. Take them down and thousands of alternate sites for platforming content will sprout up.  Take them down and ten thousand will sprout up.  People have found the power to express themselves and will not give it up easily.  The growing community of hackers, some still in their teens, have shown that no Government or Corporation in the world is able to ‘ban’ them.
The Internet and freedom of expression are here to stay.

Dont we all need a good laugh!!

I just rolled over laughing when I saw this. Do watch, for this gentleman just got his 15 minutes of fame

Imperfections.!



The chat with her left me thinking. Is there a perfect gesture? Can ‘anything’ be done perfectly? Can anything ever feel perfect? A talk? An argument , even?


Well… the night, for starters was perfect. Clear sky, full of stars. A cool breeze. The walk felt good. Lonely. But good. Not at any moment did it feel like a 6 km walk. It was light. I felt light.


So maybe perfect things do exist, around us, in our lives. Now coming to what we mortals do. Can we mortals do perfects things? Like having perfect conversations? Closing a deal perfectly? Mmm… Having a perfect argument.. say? Can we?


I guess not. Humans are imperfect. In fact humans are far from being perfect. All of them. Not one work can ever be executed perfectly. No relationship can ever be perfect. No emotion delivered perfectly. So we humans are imperfect. Face it..!


But then doesn’t that very quality set us apart? From animals? From other humans? Then, Perfectness would mean there would be just one perfect human, one perfect attitude set, one perfect skill set, one perfect profession, one perfect car, one perfect city to live in, one perfect dish to eat daily, one perfect..of anything.


And achieving ‘that’ Perfect thing would mean we would all be the same. Exact replicas of each other. All behave exactly the same. All would look exactly alike, drive the same car, live in the same city, all of ‘em, eat the same thing everyday.


Aiming for the ‘Perfect’ would mean loosing your ‘Individuality’. Loosing that, would mean… well you yourself would cease to exist, ..figuratively..of course.!


Abhimanyu: “All right Life..! Lesson taken. Do not aim for the Perfect.. Done deal..!”
Life: Mind it..! Yenna Rascalla..! Winking smile


P.S: Now who cares about perfect arguments anymore… haha..!
(Special regards to YM for helping me getting rid of my ‘block’…and JS, who is..well…shall we say My Imperfect Inspiration..!)

Engineering Roxx..

 
A compilation of a few Engineering Rib-ticklers..
 
1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.
2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner....
3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
4. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.
6. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one
you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).
7. Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
8. Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.
9. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
10. Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely
proportional to the reach.
11.. Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
12. The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
13. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

15. Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
16. Brown's Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.
17. Oliver's Law of Public Speaking - A closed mouth gathers no feet.
18. Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.
19. Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better.. But don't make an appointment, and you'll stay sick.
Just a refresh:
Murphy's Law: If anything 'can' happen, it 'will'

A Mistake should only be rectified, not cultured.

This is with reference to an article that appeared in the Ahmedabad Mirror (Friday, Sept 09, 2011)
http://www.ahmedabadmirror.com/article/3/2011090920110909025359361ed16ed49/PDPU-officials-ban-students-for-campus-violence.html
Following was my reply to the very biased comments that followed the post.
First of all, my dear fellows PDPU mates, please understand that this is a public forum and not any wall on the campus, where you will write anything you wish to. Not just you guys, not just the whole of PDPU family, this forum is open to the entire world out there. Having said that, do you seriously wish to put up such a tainted picture of your own University in front of the world? I am not saying you are wrong. You have said things with such frankness, there has to be a great deal of truth in it. Then why hide? All you guys are bold enough to reveal huge things about the ill management of the system i.e. PDPU, yet so timid that you can't even display your actual identities? Making fake email IDs and posting anonymous comments! Come on, you can do better! Commenting is easy. But remember, nobody pays heed to a faceless comment. Be bold to at least reveal your real identities.
Secondly, a group of 6 students from the B.Tech 08 batch were involved in the incident. Do not go on blaming the entire batch for what they did. Of course what they did was shameful. But shouldn't we all be ashamed that such a heinous thing took place in our campus? The 'anonymous' guys who have commented before me, they wish to say that 6 seniors had persuaded 14 juniors to 'fight'. My dear friend, "Ashish" (if that is what you wish to call yourself) It always takes 2 palms to make a clap. Don't the juniors have their own decision making ability? Would they do anything and everything that the seniors ever asked them to do? Admit it guys, it was a mistake, committed by 'all' of them, in a state of anger, over petty issues. Even I could go on commenting what a mess B.Tech 09 guys create time and again. And I sure can keep on praising my own batch of its timeless glory. But I won't. Not here!
Thirdly, please do not talk about unity, we all have our own definitions. If I may, remind you of the PDPU Protest, Feb 2011. I am sure you shall never forget that kind of uproar ever in your life.
Fourth, "Ashish", we are in the same college now, who knows we might be in the same company tomorrow. Would you always want to have such a "love-filled" relation with your seniors, and that too all of them? Then , I must, and must wish you all the very best. You shall be respected only when you know how respect others.
PDPU is not the management. It is not the professors. It isn't the huge packages it gets either. It is us, the students. What we do is what defines what PDPU is. And it isn't going to make our career if we keep on lamenting that we are here, or continuously complaining about it. Do something for the university first, and then complain that it is not doing anything in return. Because you like it or not, this name, "PDPU" will stick to you forever. Now if you wish to taint that name, or take it to newer heights, is all your wish.
With solidarity and pride for my University
Abhimanyu Manna
Class of 2012
PDPU

I have nothing more to say for now!

Mmmm… Chicken


chicken-drumsticks-from-grill
I dedicate this post to a dear friend, Saloni Gupta, from Indore, who I have met, for a very brief 15 seconds only, and that too when I didn’t know it was her.
Today, almost a month after my b’day, I finally received the gift she had sent me. And I can’t stop wondering what I would do to her if she had handed this over to me face-to-face ( Winking smile ) !

The said cookbook which is a heavenly compilation of over a 100 Chicken recipes, says:
“Chicken is one of the tastiest and most versatile meats you can use – it goes with almost every sauce, spice and vegetable under the sun! This cookbook contains mouth-watering recipes for all manner of chicken dishes, including warming soups, quick and easy lunches and impressive main courses.

With its practical advice, easy-to-follow recipes and fabulous photography of each finished dish, there is nothing difficult about this cookbook. In fact, the hardest part will be deciding which of the delicious recipes to try first!

Chicken is a popular favourite with adults and children alike, perhaps because it is such a versatile ingredient that there are heaps of different dishes to suit all tastes.  It can be prepared in lots of ways, from classic roasts to speedy fries and from spicy curries to rich and satisfying stews. It makes great sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups and kebabs and is the perfect partner for pasta and rice. It is perfect for any occasion from an elegant dinner party with friends to a relaxed family barbeque.”

My Chicken Song:
When I wake up in the morning
There is one thing on my mind
Its Chicken! Chicken! Chicken!
And more Chicken all the time.
And every now and then I think
How sad this world would be
Without my tasty little friends
So plump and feathery


IMG_4332
C – H – I – C – K – E – N
Yeah.. Chicken is my best friend
When I’m down or feeling grey
I grab my fork and clear my plate
Where am I supposed to begin
To explain how much I am in
Love with C – H – I – C – K – E – N
Breakfast Chicken!
Lunch Chicken!
Dinner too Chicken!

Now..what more can I say.. except for..

Ankleshwar et al.

 

…now, for the greater part of last couple of months I was in Ankleshwar, Gujarat interning at ONGC, in Drilling services. 45 days. You wouldn’t really expect me to take you into the technical aspect of the intern…would you? Now, one thing that I’m sure I learnt, and for ever, was elementary cooking. I experimented with any and every kinda food I caught hold of. Even tried cooking ‘ready to serve’ stuff. Tried a few ‘tougher’ recipes too. And I know what you would be saying under your breath when I say, “It was awesome.” But none of it really matters, does it? Coz I had ‘all’ of them.

Also had a lot of time for myself during these days. ‘Myself’ bole to about my past, present, and (maybe) sometimes about the future too. The difficult part was that I fell asleep whenever I started thinking about my future. And I wouldn’t really wish to share my dreams, with you, here. Although it would be a gigantic treat if my future remotely resembled my dreams.

My laptop has been causing tantrums lately. So I’m having a  new one soon. Its a swanky peacock blue Dell Inspiron 15R (N5110).

I came back to campus early, for a reason I do not see being fulfilled anytime soon.

Life is damp and gloomy.

Till next (& I hope its sooner).

Cheerio!

8 hours to go…

Hey People…Here I am…yet again…

Just 8 hours before my ‘Advanced’ Drilling Technology end semesters, not willing to study anymore (any at all, actually), my mind drifted from one thought to another. Let me try to recall the thought train…

Drilling – Armageddon (movie based on ‘Advanced’ Drilling) – Good movies – Forrest Gump – Idiot - 3 Idiots – Viru Sahastrabudhhe aka Virus – Frizzy hair – No hair – Raghu-Rajiv – Roadies – Karizma – I don’t have a bike – I will have a bike – Graduation next year – Next year 2012 – How would I like to die – How long would I like to live – Who would I live with till my last – Would the ones I have now, be there then too – Future seems so distant – If only I had a Time Machine -

and on…and on…and on…

Many of you would know exactly what I am talking about…burning the midnight oil a night before an exam only sets your mind into a random-er motion. The thought trails get hazy, and it becomes extremely difficult to concentrate.  You would know you are going through one such whirlpool if you close your eyes for a while…pictures flash at speeds you did not think your mind could process… 2 PM becomes 5 PM in no time… And its really weird how more the speed of the flashing, more you feel sedated… I mean…shouldn’t the mind become alert..!!?

Or maybe not… Human mind is a bitch… and is a real mystery… still every year millions of fools try ‘decoding’ it… I ask, “What is the need to ‘understand an understanding’?”

Can’t, ‘at least’ the human mind be free?

I don’t expect my mind to answer that question anytime soon…there I gave it an ounce of freedom…

Feels good to be sedated…

Till next…Cheerio!

Ek Chota sa Paigaam…!

 

Raah dekh rakhi hai us din ki kabse…

Aage ke sapne sajaa rakhe hain na jaane kabse

Bade utaavle hain yahan se jaane ko

Zindagi ka aglaa padaav paane ko…

 

Par na jaane kyu dil me aaj kuch aur aata hai

Waqt ko rokne ka jee chahta hai

Jin baaton ko lekar rote hain

Aaj un par hasi aati hai

Na jaane kyu aaj…unn palon ki yaad…bohot sataati hai…

 

Kaha karta hu badi mushkil se chaar saal seh jaunga

Par na jaane aaj kyu lagta hai ki kuch peeche reh jayega

Kahi-ankahi, hazaaron baatein reh jayengi

Naa bhulne wali kuch yaadein reh jayengi

Meri taang tab kaun kheecha karega?

Sirf mera sar khane ko, tab kaun mera peecha karega..?

 

Jahan do hazaar ka hisaab nahi hoga,

Wahan do-do rupaye ke liye kaun ladega?

Kaun raat bhar jaag kar saath padhega?

Kaun mera lunch mujhse pooche bina khayega?

Kaun mere naye naye naam banayega…?

 

Mai ab bina matlab ke kisse ladunga?

Bina topic ke kisse faltu me bakwaas karunga?

Kaun phone pe, room par, dilasa dilayega?

Kaun galati se number aane par…galiyaan sunayega?

Cafeteria me Slice…kiske saath piyunga?

Wo haseen pal…kiske saath jiyunga…?

 

Aise dost kahan milenge?

Jo khayi me bhi dhakka de ayein

Aur phir tumhe bachane…khud bhi kood jayein

Meri kahaniyon se pareshan kaun hoga?

Kabhi mujhe har ek ladki se baat karte dekh, hairan kaun hoga..?

 

Kaun kahega, “Manna tere joke pe hassi nahi aati?”

Kiske saath boring lecture jhelunga?

Professor ke PJ pe raakshas ki tarah kaun hasega?

Har chote shart pe haarne wale ki treat…

Iss chakkar me ab kaun fasega?

Mere ‘Dramatics’ ko radhhi kehne ki…himmat kaun karega?

Bina dare sachhi raay dene ki…himmat kaun karega…?

 

Stage par ab kiske saath jaunga?

Juniors ko faltu ke lecture kaise sunaunga?

Achanak,  bina matlab ke, kisiko bhi dekh kar, pagalon ki tarah hasna

Na jaane yeh…phir kab hoga?

Keh do doston…dubara sab hoga…?

 

Doston ke liye Professors se kab lad payenge?

Kya ye din phir se aa payenge?

Raat ko 3 baje Maggi khane kaun jayega?

Uncle Sam’s pe pel ke khane ki shart kaun lagaega?

Kaun mujhe meri kabiliyat par bharosa dilayega?

Aur zyada uddne par, zameen pe layega…?

 

Meri khushi me sach me khush kaun hoga?

Mere gham me mujhse zyada dukhi kaun hoga?

Meri ye kavita kaun padhega?

Kaun isse sach me samjhega?

Bohot kuch likhna…abhi baaki hai

Kuch saath…shayad abhi baki hai…

 

Bas ek baat se darr lagta hai doston…

Hum ajnabee na ban jaye doston

Zindagi ke rangon me, dosti ka rang pheeka na pad jaye

Kahin aisa na ho, doosre rishton ki bheed me, dosti dum tod jaye

Zindagi me milne ki fariyaad karte rehna

Agar na mil sake, to kam se kam yaad…karte rehna…

 

Chahe jitna hass lo aaj mujh par

Mai bura nahi maanunga

Iss hasi ko apne dil me basaa lunga

Aur jab yaad aayegi tumhari

Yehi hasi lekar, thoda muskura lunga…

 

Abhimanyu hai mera naam

Aur ye tha mere doston ke liye

Ek chota sa paigaam…!

Its 2245 IST… Finally the wait is over…

 

For the last 28 years, India, where Cricket is a religion, and Sachin Tendulkar is God, had been yearning for the coveted ‘Cup’. The wait is finally over…

Under the sang-froid leadership of ‘Cool Captain’, Mahi Dhoni, India cruised through the last 4 matches of the Championship. After the whimsical loss to South Africa (the only loss in the tournament, apart from a tie with England), the Indian side took matters to their pride. It is not everyday day that West Indies crumble so pitifully. Neither very often do we get to see Australia being beaten up to a shameful retreat. The champions for the last 3 consecutive World Cups (1999, 2003 & 2007), who ruled over the Cricketing World for the longest period, had absolutely no chance at defeating the team the had been quoted to have to strongest batting line-up in the tournament. India entered the Semis.

The first duo that comes to mind when we think of Cricketing rivalry is India vs. Pakistan. A fan from ‘any’ corner of the living world, would be a fool to consider any other duel greater. What more could one ask for? (apart, of course, from an Indo-Pak Finale) The semi-final match witnessed some really good moments. The legendary Pakistani pacer Waqar Younis was seen ‘sweating’ under the Mohali heat. The fastest centurion, Shahid Afridi, was seen lurking behind the silhouette at the presentation ceremony. I never saw a better example of what we affectionately call “G**nd fatke haath mein aana” before. India were set to face Sri Lanka in the Finals, a team who were known for their consistent performance throughout the contest, and in Sangakkara’s words a day before the match, “We’re just 100 overs away from glory.” (P20, TOI, April 02 ‘11) (Read on to know how his statement changed!)

After the very “fit-for-a-win-103*” knock by the ex-Lankan-Captain, Jaya and a hefty target of 275, billions of hearts skipped a beat the moment Tendulkar was caught at first slip. The entire nation kept its fingers crossed for the Master Blaster who was all set to complete his ‘Century-Centuries’ in the 2011 World Cup Finals. It was disappointing.

But people, look at it this way, 99 had remained Sachin’s jersey-number for quite a long time. Also, he has been dismissed at the score 99 for the most number of times in the world. After a World Cup win, this is the best time for Tendulkar to step down, at his peak, just one step behind the glorified “100”, marking a respect to the fact that we are human beings, we are imperfect, and kisi mahaan insaan ne kaha bhi hai, “Imperfections make us human, and we love it!”  Winking smile Angel

Mahi was especially impressive in the Finale. Having performed not-so-impressively throughout the season, Mahi took a bold step and came to the field before Yuvi. His responsible knock of 91* was quick, saved our asses, and ended with a hard hit that set the ball flying to the stands at Wankhede. The look on Dhoni’s face when he hit the sixer wasn’t joy. It was Pride. He froze in that stance for a moment, and then swung the bat as if it was a sword.

At Indian Standard Time 22:45, we became World Champions. The victory shot ended the 28-year long wait.

The team dedicated the win to the nation and Sachin Tendulkar. Said Sachin, “This is the proudest moment of my life.” Gary Kirsten was a proud coach. Man of the match: Dhoni, Series: Yuvi. Sangakkara said, “Indians were unstoppable. Anything less than 350 would not have been enough to restrict them."

“And India lifts the 2011 ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP…”

Champagne and Pride all around…

Fucking proud to be an Indian…!

What more do I write…

Yeh India ka Cricket hai…Bhidu! Winking smile

I AM AMONGST THE LIVING...


It's been ages since I last blogged.

I started to burn out. Been extremely busy.
My plans for the dinners with Juhi came to a halt when I couldn't get time.
I was in the dumps...

I've been trying to figure out what I want to do with my life.
A lot of us struggle to find our place in society.
Some may never find it.... not to say me.

But one thing is for certain. I will hang on to writing.

No matter how bad things may seem.
Whether I'm talented enough for the job...
I'll just keep writing.

I know many people don't believe that I can do this well...
But eventually... it falls back on me and whether I'm willing to put in some work to hone my craft.
I wish life was a bed of roses... but it seems there are more thorns now.

Anyhow...tomorrow, many more jobs await completion...

Whatever happens... happens.
I'm just going to put in the work.
See what turns out.
If they are cool with it, thank God.
They are not... thank God again...

I know...I know...I dont believe in him...

I gotta concentrate on my life...
I don't want to be 20 and still wander around thinking what is in it for me in life. I dont want to live for all but myself anymore.

I think I have to do something soon.
Maybe I can write that book.
Eventually, I'll get somewhere.

I just hope things are just going to be okay.
And I am hoping for the best...

Till Next
Love
Ciao

Wo dekho ek Engineer chala ja raha hai...


Here is a poem on an Engineer... It is (obviously) not an original. However, it remains very close...


Apne Project ke bojh tale dabaa ja raha hai
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Zindagi se hara hua hai, Par schedule se haar nahi manta,
Apne Area ki ek ek beam isne analyse ki hai,
par aaj kaun se rang ke 'socks' pehne hain, ye nahi jaanta,
Din par din ek excel sheet banata ja raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Piperack mein failed beams dhoond leta hai par,
Majboor dost ki aankhon ki nami dikhayi nahi deti,
PC pe hazaar windows khuli hain,
Par dil ki khidki pe koi dastak sunayi nahi deti,
Sunday nahata nahi, week days ko naha raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Kitabon me gulab rakhne wala , Outlook mein red flag lagaa raha hai,
Dil ki zameen se armaano ki vidayi ho gayi,
Din bhar mails ke jawaab de raha hai,
Weekends pe daroo peke jo jashn mana raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Maze lena ho iske to poochh lo,
"Salary Increment" ki party kab de rahe ho,
Hansi udana ho to pooch lo,
"On site" kab ja rahe ho?
Wo dekho Foreign se laute team-mate ki chocolates kha raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Kharche bad rahe hain, Baal kam ho rahe hain,
Salary ki date ati nahi,
Income Tax ke sitam ho rahe hain,
Lo phir se bus chhoot gayi, Auto se aa raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...

Pizza gale se nahi utarta,
To "Coke" ke sahare nigal liya jata hai,
Office ki "Thaali" dekh muh banata hai,
Maa ke haath ka khana use roz yaad aata hai,
"Sprout Bhel" bani hai phir bhi, Free "Evening Snacks" kha raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai....

Aapne ab tak li hongi bahut si chutikiyan,
ek engineer ke jivan ka sach batati ye aakhri kuch panktiyan,
Hazaron ki tankhwah wala, Company ki karodon ki jeb bharta hai,
ek engineer wahi ban sakta hai, Jo lohe ka jigar rakhta hai,
Hum log jee jee ke marte hain , Zindagi hai kuch aisi,

Ek fauj ki naukri, doosri ek Engineer ki ,Dono ek jaisi,
Is kavita ka har shabd mere dil ki gehrayi se aa raha hai,
Wo dekho ek engineer chala ja raha hai...
