Pakistan Demands Land From India - A Satire

PROPOSED AREA FOR BEEF-LAND 


Union Cabinet Minister Muqhtar Abbas Naqvi's suggestion of sending all beef eaters to Pakistan was welcomed by Pakistan due to excess of Beef Spices with them. Pakistani officials are offering great offers on flights and accommodations for those people who were willing to settle there,' We have estimated the number of people we need to accommodate here so we are demanding more land from Indian government for this purpose along with previously demanded Kashmir.' He added in media briefing that they could wait on Kashmir issue but beef issue was more serious. 

India is the largest exporter of beef in the world but those who involved in slaughtering and transporting this beef to the world are prohibited to eat the same due to some unforeseen health consequences. Naqvi's idea has initiated farewell parties among Christians, Muslims, Dalits and also among some Hindus in states of Maharashtra, Goa, Kerala, North-Eastern States, West Bengal et cetera to bid good bye to their friends. While Pakistan is welcoming them these people are keen on getting Beefistan or Beefland or IndiBeef from the Indian government. Some said that they understood sentiments related to cow slaughter but why Ox and Buffalo suddenly turned sacred to some hardliners. Some ministers and parliamentarian are also supporting this demand.

The Cattle community have also joined the protest on demands of a Cattle Land where all cows, buffaloes, ox, etc could live peacefully away from humans. The new government which believes in good days for everyone is also considering this demand seriously. Let's see what happens in the future but Naqvi is receiving letters and messages from Chicken community for a similar remark on their eaters so that they a Chicken land would be a reality in future.

The Floating Humans - Burma Muslims

The Floating Humans


'Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule - Buddha' 



In a world where people are fighting and protesting for better life to live in their state,country or territory there are humans who are floating on sea in search of land where they can place their feet after being thrown out from their own country. Rohingya Muslims of Burma are struggling to live a normal life. 

They're denied citizenship, forced into manual labor on government projects and forbidden to marry without official permission. Burma's Rohingya Muslims are often called one of the world's most persecuted people, and now they are turning to dangerous methods to change their fate. In harrowing attempts to migrate to nearby countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, many Rohingya ended up stuck on overcrowded boats at sea, with no country willing to grant them safe landing. Hundreds of others have died when such migrant boats capsized.



Buddhists majority in Burma (Myanmar) considered them migrant from Bangladesh denying the fact that their ancestors were living there since the British period. These Muslims were laborers from Bengal region of undivided India who were sent to work for British companies in farms and industries in Burma by Britishers. The military ruled Burma government denied them citizenship since 1982 and with citizenship it seems their right to live have also been abolished. They were not allowed to go to school, they were not allowed to do business outside Rakhine area and were tortured to leave even that small area where their population is confined.

A fishing boat carrying Rohingya Muslim and Bangleshi migrants is pulled to shore by fisherman off the coast of Indonesia on May 20, 2015. Since 2012, more than 86,000 Burmese people have fled the country on boats. (Antara Foto/Syifa/Reuters)

The persecution of Burma Muslims came into light after they were found stranded on boards at the coast of neighboring countries in big fishing boards in pathetic condition. No country is allowing them to enter their land, some of these were caught by smugglers who demanded ransom for their release from their families failing to which these kidnapped people were killed and buried in coastal areas of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.



The main stream Indian media and also the most of international media is not reporting this issue as it should be raised for this inhuman act of hostility by Burma Buddhists. This is also hard to understand why peace advocating Buddhists monks are resorting to such violent means. They are butchering small children, women, men mercilessly to throw them out of Burma. The world is silent on this issue,with this post I appeal all Human Right activists to take matter to the authorities and we should all stand in their support to help them win the very necessity of being human i.e the right to live. I hope and pray that these floating human get some ground beneath their feet. 

Diversions

Diversions



Peter was flying in helicopter over the river where he first met Rebecca his wife a vivacious girl full of life.

This was the love at first sight which culminated into marriage unopposed by their parents.

But the diversions in their relation came when she fell in love with his friend who used to visit them regularly even in Peter's absence.

He was trying to escape from the town after killing his wife and his friend with his licensed pistol when police chased his car in helicopter and arrested him by bursting his tire with a gun shot.

Diversions from the path of love closed the way towards solutions.

Ek Paar Modi Sarkaar

Ek Paar Modi Sarkar


Narender Modi is completing one year in office as Prime Minister (PM) of India on 26th May. This one year is not less than a roller caster ride for citizen of this country for having experiences which they haven't in their entire life. The Babu's day out with brooms on 2nd October which have everything except Mahatma Gandhi for whose birthday this day is remembered in India, restless and respect-less teachers on teachers day, Obama show on Republic Day are some arrangements by this government.

The aim of the Modi Sarkaar in this last year was to destroy value of special days by introducing photo sharing opportunities for celebrities in events like Swach Bharat, the agenda of growth which was the main point during his campaigning days appears missing in this second set of campaigning on the foreign soils among NRI's. Manufacturing sector, Infrastructure sector, retail growth, production, employment are facing lowest ever figures. Nothing done for farmers, laborers, middle class and lower middle class except for fake promises. MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) which helped in raising the living standard of rural Indians is on verge of extinction with no work granting under this scheme. 

The Naseebwala PM has crop damage due to excessive rains, Kashmir Flood, recent earthquake in Bihar in his naseeb for the nation. His law changing abilities have resulted in the changes in Land Acquisition Law, Whistle blower Act, Real Estate Act, etc for the worse for citizen of India. He is only self praising himself. Their is only one man in the government and all other ministers are worth puppets in his hands with no real decision making ability. The minorities are feeling insecure under his rules with rise in hate incidents even at places which never experienced such incidents, attacks on minority places of worship, relating cow slaughtering to particular community, Ghar Wapasi, Love Jihad are feathers in his cap for the first year.

He is promoting his foreign trips (18 countries in one year) as a step towards Make In India initiative while statistics shows a decline in foreign investment in the last one year instead while these trips costs more than Rs 600 crores to the nation and almost about 800 crores were wasted on government marketing. 12 months of his demanded 60 months have passed in turmoil for the nation. I will pray for goodwill of our country in coming 48 months. God Bless India. 

Do respond in the comment section if you think I have ignored his achievement in this one year because Jan Dhan has 60% accounts with zero balance, his recent insurance schemes are just for name having no use for the masses, Ganga action plan is ridiculed thrice by the Supreme Court for not being effective. 

Note: If Mr Modi happened to read it by chance we all are proud to be Indians not for some party or some leader but for the rich heritage of our country based on love and respect for each other. Please concentrate on development if you wish for it.

Book Review : Capturing Wildlife Moments In India


Capturing Wildlife Moments In India is the coffee table book by Ashok Mahindra of The Hem Chand Mahindra Foundation. It contains 120 photographs of animals and birds of India, photographed from visits to over 30 parks,sanctuaries and other locations. It is being published by Oxford University Press(OUP) & Bombay Natural History Society(BNHS).The book will be available at most of the major retail outlets across India and also through online retail sites like Amazon, Flipkart etc.It will also be available for sale through the BNHS website and is priced at Rs.1450.



Cover : Half submerged Bengal Tiger is fascinating and captivating on the cover. This first image prepared you for the beauty of nature you are going to experience in this book. I can only imagine the hard work required for such precision and patience in capturing this image. Full marks for the cover. The rear image of a peacock is also superb.




Content: This book contains 120 photographs of animals and words showing rich heritage and range of wildlife and its habitats in India. I am allowed to show few images from the book which make you aware the kind of work in the book. It contains images of almost all animals and birds species unique to India which includes Bengal Tiger, Asiatic Elephant, Rhesus Macaque, Little Egret, White Ibis, Crested Serpent Eagle,etc. Ashok Mahindra have covered almost all National Park and Bird sanctuaries of India like Corbett National Park - Uttarakhand, Ranthambore National Park - Rajasthanto, National Chambal Sanctuary - U.P, Bharat Bird Sanctuary - Rajasthan, to have these images.




Aim : The aim of this book is to create awareness of the real danger to wildlife in India and to promote the preservation of that wildlife by encouraging youngsters to appreciate beauty of nature so that they can understand the importance of forests and wildlife. We often see and appreciate wildlife on Discovery and National Geographic Channels and wish to see such animal by visiting Africa without knowing the natural beauty of our own country. This book brings you closer to Indian wildlife.

Verdict : This book is a must for every Indian household to inculcate in our children the interest in wildlife and nature which is must for the preservation of wildlife.

Rating : I would give it 5/5 for the dedication and quality.

Ek Nayi League

Ek Nayi League

image from indiblogger.in brand cover


Cricket Leagues, Kabaddi Leagues, Football Leagues, Badminton Leagues and so many other leagues are coming in the country. Their motive is to promote their respective game by giving it a flavor of glamour and entertainment and their acceptance among the masses shows their success in the their endeavor. They have changed the way we see these games, the way we feel these games. They have earned a viewership of those people also which used to avoid watching these games or those who didn't like them at all. In this crowd of leagues our very own loving, famous, forever young cricketer Mr Kapil Dev is bringing #EkNayiLeague among us. 

Ek Nayi League as the name suggests would be a different and a new concept. In his videos he is urging celebrities from the field of sports and television that playing this league with heart is like giving your own wicket (Hit Wicket) or a surprise twist (Googly). In his campaign picture he is posing like a quiz master touching his head with finger of his left hand an impression usually used to imply something related to wit and wisdom. If I conclude all these evidences then Ek Nayi League appears to me a cricket based entertaining game show.

A celebrity show where participants would face situations where they need to decide from emotional angle or practical angle and the emotional side would either eliminate you or would send you in danger for a new test essential for saving one from eviction. Kapil Paji's presence surely relates it to cricket because he is the one face along with Sachin Tendulkar who have instilled cricket in veins of Indian people. Everybody recognizes him as the man who first lifted the cricket world cup for India in 1983 and his image holding the cup from the balcony of Lord's Cricket Stadium (London, England) is unforgettable. Cricket, Celebrity, Cerebral is a deadly combination for an entertainment based game show. Kapil's mix of rustic and modern style would sure to add cherry to such a show.

I wish that if my guess about Ek Nayi League is wrong and it comes out something else even then someone should consider my idea for a game show of such type. Ek Nayi League's mysterious campaign have engaged online audience in this guessing game. Kapil Dev's twitter debut @therealkapildev before #EkNayiLeague is also making this event exciting. The interest generated by this campaign is humongous and lots of people are waiting for the revelation of this secret. I am also eager to know what the role Kapil Dev is playing in this new league. His role with this league is also a matter of suspense and curiosity among the masses. There are also possibilities that #EkNayiLeague would be a social initiative.What do you think about Ek Nayi League? If you are guessing something share it on at http://www.eknayileague.com/ 

Jailed and Bailed

Jailed and Bailed



The prompt action by Bombay High Court brought tears in my eyes due to the quickness by our judiciary. The case which was on trial for about thirteen years ended with conviction of the accused for 5 years rigorous imprisonment by Session Court at around 4 pm on 6th May 2015. The accused required to appeal for bail in the high court for the charges levied on him were bailable only in high court, the high court stops working after 5 pm and it was then the action begins. A lawyer was arranged, pleaded for bail and Hurrah! The bail was granted within 30 minutes on the same day before closing of courts at 5 pm. 

The accused I am talking about is Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, the case he was convicted for was 2002 hit and run case where his drunken driving resulted in death of one person and injuries to four others sleeping on the pavement. It took 13 years to a session court for giving him jail for 5 years and it took only thirty minutes for granting bail to him. I don't have any problem in this but what about equality of justice. Do we expect same for any other accused in hit and run case? Don't we want stricter laws to tackle drunken driving? Is this the example we are setting? Is judiciary a ball in the hands of rich and powerful? 

His lawyers appealed for leniency because of his philanthropic works. Does giving charity give you a license to commit a crime? Does running a orphanage give you right to sexually abuse the children? I can understand the feeling of his fans and followers, I also like his movies and appreciate his charity work but I can't support him in his criminal endeavor. I am sure no body would applaud release of any criminal in such a way then why him. 

If makers of 'India's Daughter' documentary by BBC were wrong in showing sympathy towards family of the rapists than you are also wrong if you are crying after seeing visuals of his family. It hurts but it was not wrong he was penalized for his wrong Karma. Justice delivered but delayed, he was jailed but hastily bailed.

Book Review : The Wedding Trousseau and Other Short Stories

The Wedding Trousseau and Other Short Stories is a collection of 11 stories written by Ankita Sharma and published by Humming Words Publishers. I have received this author signed copy from the author. All 11 tales are inspired from various shades and areas of life.

Plot : This book contains 11 stories which are all different but similar in the theme. They are all based on human psyche and relationship some of which leave you flabbergasted with the way they are approached. The title story of The Wedding Trousseau deals with the complicated relationship of a husband and a wife. Humor, disgust, dejection, surprise, sympathy, awe, fear and many other emotions unfolds with each story.

Highs : Each story leave you with a question to think about ourselves and our society. The use of conversations in the narrative helps in deeper understanding of the psyche of character which blends well with the narrative. The use of simple language enhances your reading experience. You can't single out a story which is boring. These story make you think and introspect yourselves.

Lows: No story is boring but some lose their pace in between. Few story appears to me as incomplete without any conclusion.
