Independence day for the two Indias(part 2)







Can I ever survive on my good past?

Can I ever leverage all my life just because I belong to a decent family?
Then how does a nation can always look good with fantastic history, but a dubious present and a future supposed to be like this-
(a few days back,i got this message)
Indian Newspaper Headlines in 2060:- 
(1)Kasab dies at 90 in jail of high cholesetrol due to too much biryani. 
(2)Golmaal Part 27 is released. Tusshar Kapoor is still unable to speak or act! 
(3)Sharad Pawar owns half d world. 
(4)Facebook is declared a country.
(5)A Raja's son is arrested fr 16G scam. 
(6)A girl in Delhi travels 50 feet safely 
(7)Munna Hazare (nephew of anna)sits on fast for Lokpal bill.
We talk about our love for our country , may be for its amazing past.Saying this i remember the dialogue of Aamir Khan from "Rang De Basanti"(something about past and future :P)
But I have an interesting thing to share, which describes my concern precisely.A few days back, i came to know about this site-"omegle"-talk to strangers.
My mind said-"go try it :P"and i did as the name is, you talk to some person, a random stranger, and talk about whatever you people feel like.
It go as:
my first chat was-
STRANGER-hi

I PRESSED LOGOUT


"NOW I KNOW WHY PEOPLE TALK LIKE THAT ABOUT MY COUNTRY"
(thank-you to some nerds.)
This provoked me, no wonder, i haven't done anything for my country till today, but that doesn't mean i can never.
I asked google again-the problems in INDIA and found this link -
Can you imagine surviving on just Rs 20 per day?
Many of us spend many times that amount on maybe a snack every day.Yet, 836 million people in India live on Rs 20 a day. That's right. 836 million Indians, according to a recent government-commissioned study, live on Rs 20 a day. That is all they can afford.If it costs more than Rs 20, 77 per cent of this country's population cannot afford it.
This is the unfortunate reality of the resurgent India. Lost in the glowing terms with which we are described in the international media, lost in the glory that India has joined the ranks of the world's economic powers, are India's Real People.
I logged into my facebook profile where I read :
Hamara Bharat mahaan???Ek aisa Desh Jaha...............Pizza Ambulance se pehle ghar pahuchta haiJaha Car Loan 7% or Education Loan 12% haiJaha Chawal Rs.40/kg me milta hai aur sim card freeJaha Log Durga ki pooja karte hain or ladki paida hone par uska khoonJaha Olympic Shooter ko gold medal jeetne par sarkar 3 crore deti hai or Dusra Shooter jo border par dushmano se ladte huye shahid hota hai use 1 lakhSach me hamara bharat mahaan hai.Is Status ko Itna Post karo ki apna "PM" bhi Ise padhe
Jaago India Jaago!!JAB DIL PE LAGEGI, TABHI BAAT BANEGE.VANDE MATRAM!!


On the disappointed note, far away from reality, I realized that there are two Indias which really exist- one on the papers and other on the reality. I have no question to lit a fire till I am prepared to burn these problems, but with this post I really salute the people, the real indians, who, on everyday , fight for their next day.

And i am blabbering again :)

Looking at yourself, have you ever felt like, this is not what you wanted to be. Like ever. And here you are standing in front of the mirror, looking at your face, thinking - is this really me now? Do i have to cope with this person like forever?
Can I like exchange somewhere?


Looking at the kids around, they have so much on their mind, they have hopes, dreams. They also look at the movie stars/celebrities and hope that they would live lives like them. Their on screen characters leave a mark on our just-blossomed hearts and minds.
What we do not know till then is  that the biggest fight, disappointment, inspiration they will get from themselves.


I have always wanted to be the free spirit person, living my life on my terms, not caring about anyone around, their opinions. I thought i would draft a new bucket list every year and complete it all up by November, so that i can think about more and more. And get over with all the crazy, stupid stuff by the End of this life. And what am i doing?…

Something new....

Aaah.... Guess what today i thought about several things that i want to share with you people... But i realized this needs a break...

There must be something worth writing... ;p

Was reading a novel-
In between some arguement
And the hero asks heroine- what do you want me to do?

Her reply- "i don't know".


And i wasn't able to stop myself.... I was laughing out aloud....
Truely said-how could a guy understand what his girl wants..when she herself has got no idea....
Funny but true..
Well if some guy writes this on his facebook wall...i will be so-so angry... I may even shout....what the hell these guys think...

Hehe
But i know its true...i mean...we girls always know what the other person expects... What we should do...

But we are seldomly sure about what we want...
;) may be because...since early days of our lives....we keep everyone else before us....so have lost contact with ourselves...
;)

Love,jags

just a thought...

I guess the best thing i learned till today...is that - if you feel bad...you have a war going on inside your head, you are not sure about the next step you will take...or where your life is going...where you will be , the very next day...or a week later or what you will do...So what if sometimes you feel that things are wrong...nothing is working out the way you suggested... still you will be fine...You will live by all this... many-many similar days are waiting for you...Big dreams and even bigger problems are being positioned by the almighty , just to add a little adventure...But you will live ...It will all be fine in the end...
Just be yourself...and see how beautiful a person you are... Just smile...may be just to practice it...
Because even if...today your smile is a little tired and sad...tomorrow it will be happy...real and satisfying... Life is not about a moment...or a day...or a week...not even a year... Its about the whole...its about you... :)
