The world is in the midst of a Change..

Humans do not act like 'humans' any more.The media is becoming so insensitive too.I start with a negative thought but always positively pray for the "Good Sense" to prevail.

Countries all over are facing some crisis or the other.Political,Economical,Social etc... How has this come about? no one cares to ponder seriously.I am appalled at the reactions of various sectors of society.Our "own civil society" which doesn't seem 'civil' any more.All seem to attack or shift the blame on to someone or some thing.

Money,Religion,Caste,Economic Status,High Society,Rules,Ethics,Morals etc... all are "man made"   therefore all problems too are so.Our thinking process is all awry.We are conformists,biased,extreme,inconsiderate living beings as we grow in populations...thereby devaluing ourselves.I,Me,Us,Our....all egoistic terms..trying to 'monopolize'. All want 'Personal Possession' or ownership.This leads to surefire trouble of some kind.

We are raping everything in our possession. A strong word "rape" but so commonly and widely performed in action.The thinking Animal is at large.The Human is out to 'fail' it's creator.Therefore "change" is all around us.

All rules,ethics,regulations,cautions,Man made and Nature's laws put aside and not cared for.We have 'our own way'.The new generation is in the hands of electronic creations by 'us'.We do not blame ourselves at all...never.The Brain has vulgarly deteriorated in thoughts.

Kindness,Peaceful coexistence is slowly becoming a 'myth'.In harmony with nature is re-written as 'harm any'. Nature itself is harmed.Man arm himself with arms against fear from his own brothers and sisters. There is no charm left to life. The value of our own kind has taken a bad hit.

Where are all the 'good things' in "Life" ?

Material wealth is a bad lure.Wants and wishes are turning to demands. What is given is not appreciated.What others possess is not respected.Cynicism and hatred is spread by compulsive writing,speech and actions.The Social Animal is being killed in his own Jungle.The Jungle is turning in to a barren desert with concrete trees and the Oasis is just a painted Hoarding on the Tarred roads which do not allow Mother Earth to breathe.

It is Universal

It is Universal

Born in a land
with or without a Band
A culture unchosen
neither parents nor religion

Learning a language
growing with age
To Parents unknown
in some land seeds sown

Learning a language
culture of that age
In a society offered
with whims n styles coiffured

Egos and etiquette
lest we all forget
The values taught and shown
to critique we are prone

Me , mine or I
a long lost cry
Judged by the society
homeless, moneyed or IT

Choosing a partner for life
adjustment,companion or wife
Parent,gay or divorcee
prying into your privacy

If Rich all forgiven
a failure, to the grave driven
God and religion a passe'
if Nike,Omega or  Versace

Happiness,peace search
all left in a lurch
Fame and Name sought badly
settling for money gladly

Friends, family all secondary
busy when famous future in quandary
Old age,bad days never cared for
destiny,fate a forgotten Lore

The last days arrive
for the caring you strive
Learning, experiencing at last
youth,wealth,love is a big PAST.

Malia Obama- Daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama and elder sister of Sasha(Natasha)

Barack and Michelle Obama have two daughters: Malia Ann, born on July 4, 1998 and Natasha (known as Sasha born on June 10, 2001.They were both delivered by their parents' friend Dr. Anita Blanchard Sasha is the youngest child to reside in the White House since John F. Kennedy, Jr. arrived as an infant in 1961.

A special blog on Malia turning 16. What a journey and what parents. Hats off to the family of so many "firsts'. I have seen her grow and watched so much about the Obama family since Obama started his campaign for a presidential berth in the first' Primaries'.

To be born to such parents and a responsible upbringing then having to share the limelight.... it all reminds me of my own childhood. It wasn't this big but big enough and being a son of a political figure is a bit different. Happy and uncomfortable. The way the 2 sisters carry themselves is amazing.Hats off the Michelle and Barrack.

To turn 16,while dad is president must surely be an experience.The USA has a great President in Barack and his family is exemplary.Never a bad move or news about the President's Children in the last so many years of Obama Presidency.Kudos and Well done !

I wonder if the children of such Political bigges 'learn' from Malia and Natasha. We all need to learn and take a lesson from the Biggest and Most Powerful ...The Obamas... the Presidential  Family of U S of A.

Oh ,Tell me true friend

Tell me true friend
where does it end?
The family your born
the wealth you sit on
The education you get
the  friends you have met
The clothes that your wear
the style you will dare
The brands that you use
from designers who confuse?

Your parent's love and care
the actions that you stare
The literature that you read
the upbringing that you need
The language that you use
the words that you muse
The food that you eat
the rendezvous and your beat
The vehicle that you own
the comfort that you clone

The person that you marry
the people of whom you are wary
The House that you live in
the pity, luxury or sin
The places that you visit
the entries and the exit
The carpet that you walk
or the walk that you talk
The God that you pray
the atheist who has his way

The compassion that you have
the hurts & wounds that you salve
The humans that you help
the animals that you make yelp
The buildings that you build
the associations and the guild
The name and fame you're after
the fun, frolic and laughter
The Person that you show
the reality that you know ?

Ushering a New government....

With every new day, a new hope arises.A lot has happened in the last 3 months and much will in the coming three.Just hope that India progresses in the right direction.

A lot many lessons were to be learnt and hopefully they would be.There is no sincerity in the 'New Politician'. Democracy was being 'redefined' by the earlier governments and so they did badly and sadly they LOST. I hope all others have GAINED from this.

It is not Power or Ownership that you MP's get, it is the chance to serve the people and their country. You have to see to the betterment of human kind and your co citizen. It is not about making personal wealth but using "people's wealth" to bring about a healthy and comfortable well being for the common man.

It is not families and relatives who should get the benefit of your representation , but the people and your constituency.Every Naya paisa has to be well spent and properly too, Responsibility and Ownership of actions is expected by your voter.Publicity and fame is your blessing for "good governance and execution''. 

You bring citizens across the country together and not spill venom so they don't. Caste Class Creed is man Made. The Land has equal ownership of all and so do the resources.The administration is paid to do work and not rob people.The police are to protect and not harm the common man.

A new team has come in but let new thoughts come in too. Education has spread and so will your Misdemeanors due to Media,Communication and Progress.People will ask questions ,so better take proper actions.The day is not far when they will come knocking at your door if you fail their vote to you. 

Times have changed,Youth are aware and no more in villages of ignorance and misinformation. Mobiles and their Sm's/Whats App can do a lot of damage even before you try to control your misdeeds.

Beware oh new Government, for you are " OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, AND BY THE PEOPLE"  

Show us that you are not a 'Moody Sar' drive well to the right destination.

Joining a movement called AAP

12th January 2014 will be remembered by me for two things, firstly for Swami Vivekanand Jayanti and secondly for joining a movement called AAP.

I have always been with the Movement of India Against Corruption, the Jan Lokpal Andolan and the entire wave of the common man standing behind the Man 'Anna Hazare'.

Having observed since a few years the way Arvind Kejriwal and his supporters have been going,the results they got, surprising themselves,and being forced to form a 'Political group and platform' to achieve the goals they have set; I am mighty touched,happily surprised and driven to help these 'young and new' people, who citizens of India,without caste,creed,political or economic bias.I suddenly remembered 2 things:- one the famous quote from the Bhagvat Geeta;

 Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya Glanirva Bhavathi Bharatha,

Abhyuthanam Adharmaysya Tadatmanam Srijami Aham'.

and Swami Vivekananda's words:-

“Arise,awake,stop not until your goal is achieved.”

I became a member of Aam Aadmi Party having felt like one all my life. Having studied Political Science and Public Administration in order to join the Indian Foreign Services , it was my misfortune ,due to my Father's Political career ad my Grandfather's health, that I could not do so.

"Politics" so called has been a part of my life since childhood.I was 6 months old when My Father was voted to the MLA status.and there started a career wherein he reached the highest seat of MP and a chairman of PUC (Public Undertakings Committee).

He was originally a 'Die Hard Communist',but then all the best of people and intelligentsia was picked up by the Congress and it's leaders, and taken help of in building "Free India". 

AAP is no "party' for me. It is a Movement as I earlier mentioned.It is the feeling of the common man who feels there is a great "Betrayal" by the 'Indian Politician' and it's system of the Democratic process of " Government by the people,of the people and for the people".

The Quality of the Politician ad his politics has been seen deteriorating by Me since the last 57 years in front of my eyes..The treatment of Political Posts as their personal properties or family possessions is a sad and vulgar example.The "national spirit'', the pride of being Indian is so missing and the sentiment of "Tyaag" or public/social service and upliftment ,has been taken so ordinarily/loosely and made a pity feels sad.

"Making fools of the common public and under all misconstrued claims looting the public funds"
 The Citizen looting fellow citizen is so rampant and frustrating!

This was felt by the "genuine" common man but he thought all these Politicians with thick skins would not yield and change their ways. When The "media" helped the common man to see from the Rallies in New Delhi by 'Anna' ... he decided to "don the Gandhi cap" the Gandhian ideology in a way...and fight these power brokers by getting into Power themselves. 

Here I only pray that Media should play a very responsible and unbiased role if India as a Nation has to be made proud and thereby improving our stature and respect in the eyes of the world.

The child is just born, it crawls and will slowly stand, no magic will help but "time and patience'' will see it grow into healthy and pure 'human being'.

The opposition is slowly coming out of shock and so is AAP... we are listening to and watching 'proof' every new day.I wish that 'Makarsankranti'
Makara means Capricorn Zodiac Sign and Sankranti means transition of the Sun from one zodiac sign to another. Thus Makar Sankranti is the day that marks the transition of the Sun into Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path. 

.............................................brings about the change in the Indian Political Horrorscope too.
