Nature Love

Last August I got a chance to see nature closely. Today we are living in cities and got very less chance to see the nature in its beauty. We are so busy in day to day life that we forget that a few kilometers away nature has some thing stored for us. Month of August is usually a hot and rainy month in India. Monsoons start rain heavily in this month. Monsoon is a cloudy movement from sea to the upper part of India, this phenomenon happens in July-August of every month. This is the incident of 23 August. This day was clean from clouds unlike other days.


I got the chance to move to other city. The city was 45 KM from my town. However the road to that city passes through fields and ponds. All this provides a good and free atmosphere to see. This was my first journey on this road. While crossing the road I realized that a small turtle is trying to cross the road. He was quite small in size. Therefore I stopped my scooter to cross him the road. He could be crushed by a bus or truck. I took him in my hand. This was the first time when I ever had taken a turtle in hand.

He was nearly same size of my hand. He was trying to escape my hand. However he was not able to do anything because I was holding him from his solid hole. He sometimes put his head and legs inside the hole and sometimes put them out. He paddled his legs to escape however he was helpless. It was quite a beautiful experience for me. A thought came in my mind that I should take him with me. However I did not want to make him away from his family. So I just crossed him the road and released him there. He immediately run into grass and disappears. I was happy that I am able to save his life and got the chance to touch a turtle. I will always remember this beautiful experience.

Moti felt sad when remember about his brothers and sister. The daughter of bank officer Praynka loved moti. She took care of him well. So Moti started enjoying his time with Praynka. He sleeps with her and plays with her. Only the time which was difficult for him to pass is when Preynka goes to school. He waits for her eagerly in the balcony. His life was going smoothly. But the God had something different written in Moti’s fate. On one day Moti was alone in home. Suddenly some thieves broke into the house. They were three in number.

He was happy to sacrifice his life for Pranyka. Within the few minutes he dies, taking with him all the sweet memories of his life with him. Writer’s resource- www.geocities.com/arvindkatoch1

Do we really know what is right or wrong?

Do we really know what is right or wrong?
My question may look foolish to many but I have found many people including myself who do not know the difference between right and wrong. Our societies have evolved from lot of struggles. We have many religions, many believes and many philosophies. Things which are prohibited in one culture are acceptable in other.

Things accepted as good to do, may differ across the globe. Earlier times all this was acceptable because we have no contact with each other. We only contact each other in wars to kill each other but now the time have changed with the advanced technologies we are becoming more near to each others.

Today Allah is not the domain of Muslims or Jesus of Christens. Any body from across the globe can read my Hindu religion. I myself have gone through Hindu, Sikh and Buddha religions and partially through Muslim and Christen religions. Now it is possible for wise people to understand the hidden truth and compare it for right and wrong.

However the apathy is that 90% of the people around the world do not want to accept this. They want to live on those old believes of right or wrong. They do not want to use their power of brain to see the picture in clarity. To maximum extent it is not fault of these people including me because we are born and grown in this environment.

It is very hard for us to change believes. There are many Muslims, Hindus’ and Christens’ who are killing themselves or other on the name of religion. Every one is justifying these killing as a right act as per his religion. How religions which are developed many years back can tell us what is right or wrong?

Do we not have the power to question these facts? Why we are trying to defend or giving shelter to our religions? Does our religions are so weak to defend themselves? No religion is bad; every religion has many good points, only we need few corrections in them with time.

Time has arrived to give freedom the human to choice his God, his religion or simply his life. We all need a real freedom to know what is right or wrong. Without freedom, we will never know the difference between right and wrong.

Degradation of values

In the recent times, there are lot of news in the media, which are very hard to believe. According to the first news, the number of students in professional colleges using drugs and alcohol is on rise. Approximately 40% of students are involved in some kind of addiction. Second news is about the suicide of a young engineering first year student. He committed suicide because of the humiliating ragging going on the campus. He was tortured by his seniors including a girl student.

For an innocent and hard working boy torture was above his limit to sustain it.These are not just two incidents in isolation; number of these kinds of episodes is on rise in India. One day, these guys will grow and join the industry and they will run the economy for us. How we can expect good behaviour and character from them, if they are involved in wrong gestures and conducts from young age. These students are not honest at their college level then the chances of show of honesty by them at the job are also very less.

It is really hard to clear entrance examinations for joining these prestigious colleges. IIT is the biggest engineering institute in India. A boy from Calcutta IIT was nabbed by Delhi police for putting blue film for download on Bazzee.com (now ebay.in).In India, it is like a dream for most of students to join ITT. For the 300000 students appearing for IIT only 3000 are able to clear it. Many the students who got the seat in IIT don’t realize its value and indulge in wrong doing. Country requires a greater sensible approach from these young gentlemen because whole country’s future depends upon them.

The boy who had done suicide may the star for country, if provided with the chance and positive atmosphere to grow.How long we will go on repeating the same mistakes. Situations are already rated by some experts as serious and requiring immediate action. All these problems are basically coming from degradation of moral values. Younger generation is not in state to see what is right or wrong for them. Here a complete society role comes in to play. Hope for best that situations improve in future.

Fourth way is indirect marketing. In this way people promote their products, websites and e-books by providing links or by advertising them on the blogs.

Blogging in India

Today blogging is gaining a lot respect in India. The protest from the blogging community against the governments ban on blogging site few months back shows the power of Indian bloggers. The protest was so strong that Indian government was forced to lift its ban on the blogging site. This was first kind of incidence showing the power of Indian bloggers.

The reason may be any but the point is that we are coming on the world map of blogging. There are many Indians around the world, who are doing from the many years. The advantage with blogging is that it offers a good way to interact with the world and put the thoughts forward. Some of the blogging are already hit and are providing good information to their readers. With all this we could hope to see better blogs from India.

Where is real Arvind Katoch?

Life is a complex journey and it goes on becoming more complex as we go ahead with it. When I was a child I always wanted to become young as early as possible. I felt that young people have lot of power and they can take their independent decisions. I always wanted to take my all decisions myself; moreover I also wanted to become a self independent person. However in reality after being a young today, life is turning me into a different personality which I never wanted myself to be? People’s expectations, family’s expectation, friend’s expectation, job’s expectation and relative’s expectation, all are making me to behave in some different way, in a way which I never liked. This is a way which is more superficial and away from reality.

My emotional feelings are getting killed and I am becoming more and more emotion less person, or simply a dead human. Many times, I have to put a false face on my face to make others happy. Many times I have to hide my feeling and emotion for not hurt the feelings of other people. On the other hand people do not take care of my feelings. Some people take advantage of their position; some take advantage of their relation and some of their intelligence to make me fool. I do not want to say that everyone is bad but many people around me are doing this only with me. They are only trying to make me fit in a place where they can take advantage from me. Everyone is looking for his advantage by using me. Some want money from me, some want emotional support, some want praise, and some may want other things.

Sometimes it becomes very difficult to fit with all these expectations and all this give me a feeling of being used. I am not a usable thing and anybody does not have any right to change me. Today, I am not what I wanted to be? But I have no fault in it because I was not allowed to become my real self. Today I am trying to regain my lost powers and wisdoms with the help of my God Ganesha. Some people are taking these actions as revolt against them and feeling very awkward and are in their actions trying to threaten me to change the path. However, I am determined to get back my lost life and become a person who I wanted to be? (A real and simple person not in the eyes of others but in my own eyes)

A smile

This four word letter smile has many things to say. What can not be achieved with big fights can be achieved by a simple smile. World is the reflection of our behavior. How we behave towards it, the similar way it behave towards us. If we smile at the world then the world will also smile at us. There are lot of grieves present in the world. Nobody wants to see dull and life less faces. Simply by adding smile to our face we can change our whole look. People will start more admiring and remembering us.

Everyone must face this simple example in life, when your girlfriend first time smiled at you. Many of us will be still remembering that smile. A simple smile can do wanders or at least not do but still help us bonding positively with others. Smile is a good way to express our feeling of happiness to others. It shows that we are happy to meet that person and can accept the same from him. Like the third law of Newton “For every action there is equal and opposite reaction”. More genuinely we smile at other, more chances of genuine smile from them.

However we should we careful about the smile. Many people smile superficially, the smile does not appear genuine. These kinds of smiles are easily judged by others and we can not expect good result of it. Some people think that if they smile more then people will say them mad. This is not true everybody wants to see good and smiling faces, however exceptions are there. It is difficult initially to accustom with the habit of smiling, however with the habit and practice we can master I it.

Smiling is good face exercise. It helps us to relieve our face muscles. Therefore smiling provides us a good way to make our face fresh and healthy. Where as so many people spend so much of money on face massage, which effect can be done by simple smiling. Whereas the people who do not smile, there faces starts looking dull very early. You may be of any built or any colour, you can add your grace by simple smiling. Smile is good exercise and way to make others happy. It does not involve much of work, only we are required to relive our face muscles.

Keep smiling

How my mobile phone is eating my space?

Mobile phones are the greatest discovery of the time for mankind. Mobile communication has made many things in our reach. Now we can easily call any one at anytime. I can carry my mobile anywhere with myself, so people can connect me even in a jungle. So with my mobile I am in a state of constant touch with others. My company can call me when they need me, my customers can call me when they need me and my family and friends can all me when they need me. Therefore my mobile phone has made me available for all of my friends.

However, in all this I am not able to call myself when I need myself. When I plan for a movie, my boss tells me do some work. When I want to do mediation someone calls me with urgency. When I am in south, someone calls me to go to north. Some times I attend more then thirty-forty calls a day and even some calls last for hours. Many times, I get calls when I am on busy roads and this may cause accident or attention diversion. The other problem is emotional flooding by others, whenever someone feels sad or frustrated he use his phone to put all his sadness and frustration in my mind.

At somewhere I feel this innovation of mankind is invading my life and more of my personal shape. My loneliness gets suffer by this small ringing device. Last few months I have set time table for my mobile phone and trying to strictly obey it. I put phone on silent or switch it off when I go to sleep or need some personal space. I pick my calls as per the mood and requirement. This arrangement may look awkward to you but it is helping me in making myself more with me. I cannot allow this small device to evade my life and make it more complex then simple.

Death Fear, religion and we

Lot of people around us dies every day. This is one of the biggest realities on this earth. But still death is most unspoken word. Nobody even wants to think about it. When we hear about it, a strange fear starts coming in to our mind. Why these fears exist in us? None can give accurate answer to these questions. We are from childhood developed to treat death as a bad thing.

Death is supposed to take our near and dare ones, away from us. Have we ever given a thought to it? Or ever we tried to go into its reality. The answer is no, because this is the most fearful question to us. Mostly the people who tried to solve this question are not looked as good person by our society. Secondly nobody so far is able to provide accurate answer to it. Most of the answers are questions in themselves.

Even our religions are not clear about it. Every religion has its on theories and explanations. Most of them say that after death, we go into other world. They try to describe this world in their own ways. They divide it into two categories for good and bad people. If we do good deeds, we go into good world. But if we do bad deeds then we go into bad world. In all these cases the religious God is given the supreme power. He is supposed to decide about us.

That’s way many people pray to these Gods for wellbeing. Their main aim is to save themselves from difficulties and finally from death. But nobody has seen any God so far. Lots of claims were made, but no authentication is provided by anybody. Even this is the most controversial issues today. Person is looked down, if he doesn’t respect the religion. We were advised to fear the God and follow the religion. Religious hearted are also result of these different philosophies of death and God. Every religion says their philosophy and God is real.

Every religion says in nutshell to fear and more fear. Many claims were made for life after death by many. Are they real or exploiting our fears? The fear was put into our mind by our parents, our society and our religion. This is clear from horror movies were the dead mans are villains. Thus death is associated deeply with bad things and finally with fear.

Even modern science has proved that fear is bad. It wastes our energy and time. We can make this fear constructive, by making our views about death more clear. Fear is also a good motivator, as it allow us to achieve many things in life which we otherwise not able to achieve. Death is a natural phenomenon. It will come to everyone. No one can escape from it. Nature has made us to give birth, multiply and die. Our body is structured in this way. I am not saying you to not follow your religion, but asking to follow things wisely. We should try to make the fear of Death, a motivator for us to achieve more heights in life.

Help

Why we need help? Is it good to get help from others? Why some people help us and others do not? Why Help is considered good by some one and bad by others? What will be my options about help? Are these questions coming in to your mind about help? If yes, then this article is for you. Mostly we need help when we are in trouble or facing some kind of problem.

We have all our resources and knowledge exhausted for coming out of the problem. We are not getting to any solution near to our problem. In these situations we need help. Help could of any type like for money, counsel, advice or support. Help could making us fight from the starting and win the battle. Some people who have more experience then us, can give us some advice which could be useful in coming out the situation.

Moreover, with help we could see many those points which are beyond our sight due our short sighted thinking or prejudices. Help has worked as wonder in the life of many people. Many successful people of today have taken advice some time back in their lives. One should not feel any kind of shame in taking help because from our birth we taking help from our mother, father, friends and relatives.

Help is the basic funda of life without which it is difficult to live in this mutually dependable world. Moreover we could make our relations more strong by asking help from others. Help helps us in getting more near to many people. On the other hand if we accept others to help then we should also help others in their difficult situation. In this way help could make our lives more fulfilling and livable.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) has emerged has a major resource for doing long distance calls at the cheapest rate. Now from India people can call America, UK and Dubai for few Indian rupees raging from Rs 3 to 5. These rates are 60% to 80% lower than the rates of call charges available with various telephone operators. Initially, VoIP was not successful in India because of the poor internet services. However, with the entry of high speed broad band and dsl network it is possible to make easily VoIP calls from India.

Recently the economical broad band service from BSNL (a state telephone service provider) has made even possible to do VoIP call from home, otherwise many cyber café’s are providing this opportunity. Nobody has thought that internet could also do phone calls for us and that too at this cheap rate. Now we can make VoIP telephone calls either to other VoIP devices, or to normal telephones on the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), this is other advantage and option to free from the dependency of computer. For countries like India VoIP has emerged as a big advantage to be in contact with near ones.

I love you Garfield

Garfield is one of my best cartoon characters. I love to see his cartons on Television and read weekly Garfield series in the newspaper. I have also subscribed to email version of Garfield series. Garfield is a cute and dashing cat. I love him because his character resemble somewhat with mine. He is lazy like me and has observing behaviour. I love his wise laziness. He is lazy cat still he is wise enough to make remarks on foolish human.

Garfield’s look is very attractive, really cartoonist has developed an extraordinary concept through Garfield. It is always a fun to see or read about Garfield. He is quity-quity cat, which everyone would like to have. Garfield cartoons are not only entertaining but they have simple messages which can make our life more meaningful. I always want to have cat like him. I have few cats many years before but Garfield is different, he is a master piece.

A smart, lazy, fat and big cat may be a bizarre description but it holds true for Garfield’s talent. Many times Garfield is able to add fun in my life through his movies, cartoons or prints. I hope to see him achieving new heights and liked by lots of people around the world. The major difference to the concept of Garfield is made by his ability to walk on two feet and not on four. This gives him a different outlook and appearance as compared to his counterparts. In the love of Garfield

State of Judical sytem

It is always a better option to have a good judicial system because it could help us in getting a good life for our people. However in India, judiciary is in bad shape. Many cases are still pending for years. Many under trail criminals are waiting for judgment for last many years. The whole problem is not with the judicial system; our political systems are also responsible for it.

They are not able bring any change while seeing the wide spread corruptions and excess load of work. According many famous lawyers and retired judges, it is the need of hour to revive the whole judicial system. Moreover a good judicial system represents the got state of a state. People get justices at the faster speed and a trust got generated on the judicial system. Even still there are few people in judicial system that is fighting rightly for the causes of others. They are determined to get other justices.

They are few names which are very popular in helping the needy people. One such name is of simmons jannace & stagg. They are known for fighting many cases in America, which helped many people. One of the highlight was their case for September 11the victim’s widow. The attorney sought $2,000,000 as a contingency fee from the widow. The fight of simmons jannace & stag was able to found justice to the women by upholding the decision of fee. They have also done the same with Nancy Burpee case and with many others. This shows there commitment for getting to the ordinary people. Some time people found themselves in the middle of situation where they did not know what they want to do.

Airsoft guns

Airsoft guns are used in a game combats in which people try to do the replica of real fight. This game became popular in Japan in 1980, when it was illegal to own real fire arm. Airsoft guns spring-powered replicas of firearms that fired 6mm, plastic BBs. Airsoft guns doesn’t hurt any one, therefore can be used for playing combat games. These guns are nearly similar in look, weight and style to real firm arms.

Today, Airsoft games are played in Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, North America and Europe. Airsoft guns use plastic pellets commonly called as "BB's" which are propelled out of the guns by compressed air. Mostly only difference between real fire arm and Airsoft gun is the blazing orange tip and when you pull that trigger. This game helped to play combat games without hurting anyone.

Having routes from early 1970, this game has come as a good sports adventure for many people around the world. In this game, people play like a real battle with two opposing teams. Person who got touched by the BB have to go out of the game. Today there are many cheap airsoft guns are available from various sites. People can easily get them and plan there own combats without hurting anyone. However these guns should be given with caution to small kids.

Wonders of Internet

Twenty years back, it was difficult to think about the internet and its usage advantages. Especially for Asian country it was like a dream. To get knowledge about the other countries and to access certain knowledge in these countries was a distinct dream. Most of the people depend upon information provided by others or books or print media. Therefore the information’s are half truth and rarely of any use. Nobody can ever think about doing business with people living in other countries. Connecting and interacting with the people of other countries was a distinct dream too. Only postal service was one available option, but it was so slow that it took months to communicate.

However, in the recent years internet has come as a great option. Day by day its usage is seeing an upward trend in every sphere of life. For some of Asian countries likes India and China, it has come as bless. People from these countries are able to show their talent to the world. Internet which started as secret weapon of American army is now changing the life of many. The internet has given us some of popular tools one of which is e-mail. E-mails have provided us with unique opportunity to always remain in contact. It provides a permanent address on net and it remains same wherever we go. We can use it from any country where we opt to live.

It is not only helping in sending plain message, but we can even send photos and music files. This service is provided mostly free of cost by most of popular mail service providers like rediffmail.com and yahoo.com, which are among some of hit names. However, one can search thousand of free e-mail services on net. Second exciting and hit service is chatting. It is very popular among young generation. It provides them opportunity to make friends across the world and share views among each other. Chatting is not only popular among young generation; however it is becoming popular among wider set of people. It provides the opportunity of sharing our thoughts instantly without thinking about the distant divide.

Third important and recent addition to this internet story is blogs or weblogs. This is the new gem in internet crown. Blogs provide individuals’ opportunity to show their thoughts to the world. Any body from a small child to old man can use them. It provides us with a platform to know others and tell them about us. There are many hit blog stories. Forth impotent use of internet is accessibility of information. With the help of search engines like Google and MSN, we now have access to hundred of pages of information available on net. Now we do not require going to others or reading lengthy books. A click can do this for us. Now with the help of internet we have same information available to us which is available to people of America or England. Internet is also helping in removing the divides made by different boundaries. While remaining in one country we can now work for the organization of other countries. In the coming years internet is going to change our life faster than expected.

Some side effects of Modern life

With in last fifteen years India has seen a tremendous growth in all the spheres of life. Today technologies in India are matching with the rest of the world. We have mostly all the latest technologies available. Hundreds of TV channels, broad band internet connections and mobile phones reaching every town and village. Roads are becoming wider and new high buildings are emerging from nowhere. Job opportunities are much large as compared to earlier years. Some of my friends are able to change more then five jobs in just five years. We have moved from a state of nothing to everything.

However few questions have started haunting us about the life which we have chosen. Is it not a life which is missing the love of togetherness, a world which is without time for others, a life which is more demanding, a life which is making us robots, and a life which is making us ill and a life which is making us nothing at the end? Is this like it only, may be few people not agree with me because most of us have no time to think about the negative impacts of this fast life. Psychological disorders are rising at alarming pace; nearly every one is associated with some or other health problem.

We are generating pollution and endangering our environment to make money. We are cutting beautiful trees from hills to make hotels and home, we destroying beautiful beaches to construct five star hotels. The nature is also rewarding us back with increase in normal temperature level which has caused the hardest summer ever in America and Europe. We are creating things to get comfort but more sever problems are emerging in front of us because it is not possible to steal anything from nature. However the thirst for more money and comforts is making our life more difficult.

I have seen the time when we are poor and have less resource. At that time most of the people are happy, we have more time for each other, and every one respect each other. Today thanks to mobile phone and internets that we can call or mail our friends instantly but unfortunately we do not have any time to visit them in personal. Life looks more near to us, but in actual it has gone more far away from many of us. Today even many small children are dying from cancer, diabetics, hepatics and heart disorders, which was not a seen years before. Osteoporosis has become a common story for all the middle-aged people. Have we accepted all these side-effects for getting a more comfortable life?

Desperate Childhoods

Childhood is a time in the life of each person which plays a major role in shaping of behavior and attributes of a person for rest of life. If a child is not provided with all the basic necessities essential for life then it could severely hit the growth of child. In developing nations like India living standards of people vary very sharply. The living style of people is hit by money, location, caste, religion and position in society. Usually people who have large money or upper position in society are able to give good childhood to their children. But unfortunately numbers of these kinds of people are very less.

Still there are 60% of people in India, who come under list of parents which are not able to provide all the basic necessities to their children. These basic necessities may include proper education, intellectual and emotional support for growth and fulfillment of small desires. Many children complete their whole childhood while compromising for many basic requirements. In today world where high technologies are invading the minds of our children with faster speed, it becomes more important to provide a suitable growth options for children. Today’s children feel more desperate as compared to their brother and sisters few years back.

The risky point is that this desperation could lead to damaging impact on the life of children when they become adult. I am sharing one of the common problems faced by many individuals in India. It is lack of confidence and ability to speak fluent English. English as emerged as big rewarding language in terms of growth in profession and getting good jobs. However still most of the children in India belong to middle class living in small cities or villages, where there is no option available to learn and enhance English.

Therefore, many children are not able to complete their dreams. Sometimes even smallest desires are remained burred inside the heart of these young bloods because of lack of money or understanding. All this cause many talented children to live degraded lives in their adulthood. Moreover some of people even after getting good starts in adulthood are not able to come out of these childhood setbacks. Some people even restore to negative habits for coming out of childhood memories. It is advent from the latest data released by some voluntary organization; there is widespread increase in the use of sedative and narcotics by many young students in India.

State of Mental Health in India

We can divide the health of a person into two categories; one is physical health and second is mental health . Physical health is wellbeing of our body parts and systems. It is necessary for all the body functions to work well to perform our basic daily duties. Physical health is mostly well taken care from the beginning of human era. Simply walking for few kilometers a day and doing house hold activities are enough to make us healthy. Moreover, much kind of exercises are known to every person for maintaining a healthy physical outfit.

On the other hand mental health is an issue which is out of the reach or understanding of many people. Today’s human are under much pressure from the daily life routines as compared to their ancestors. Advent of high technologies and luxuries good in market has increased our desire for these things. We are slowly running towards a more pleasure seeking culture. In recent few years, Indian roads have seen major jump in the number of cars. Twenty years back, it is very difficult to see a more then 10 lakh rupees car on Indian roads but now one can easily see n number of these cars. All this is also true with other gadgets.

Some people are lucky to get money for all these things easily, because of better luck or being born as silver spoon in mouth. Whereas many others have to work day and night to maintain these kinds of luxuries and still there are 80% people who never be able to touch these milestones in their life. Now 30 to 40% of these 80% people suffer from mental tensions of not being able to satisfy their needs and remaining all 20% always remain under tension to maintain their wealth. Expectation of life, family, friends and known ones also have increased many time which is very difficult to meet in busy life.

Above are only few example of tension causing reasons; we can count many other reasons responsible for stress and mental tension . Only I want to say that how difficult it is to lead tension free life in this world. Moreover many mental tensions can lead to harmful physical disorders. In these busy societies daily many people are becoming mad when they found themselves unable to coup up with unending pressures of life. I have seen many people shouting in the middle of roads and tearing off their cloths in front of general public. What is all this? Not a show of madness. However we people are so busy in our own lives that we have no time to note these things because we are confident that we can never become mad.

Physical heaths can be restored by doing few exercises but it is not possible to restore again mental health. In India the mental hospitals are flooding with patents and most of the hospitals are lacking basic infrastructures to meet this rising demand. Terrorism, insurgencies are also playing major role in increasing mental problems among women and children. We growing fast but simultaneously we are also growing in mental problem which could go out of control in near future.

The Rape of Vande Mataram

100th year of Vande Mataram will be written as a black day for this beautiful patriotic song. If Vande Mataram would be a person then he must have committed suicide while seeing all this. This is big shame for the politicians of India who have used this song to create an avoidable controversy. India is a single country for its entire people including Hindu, Muslim, Christen, Sikh and all other communities. As a united country, we can have one flag, one national anthem, one national song, there can not be different flag or anthem or song for different communities. The act of creating controversy regarding the Vande Mataram and making it a pro one community song is highly shame full act.

I like Vande mataram because I feel proud and associated with my country when ever I listen or sing it. This song was written before the independence of India therefore it is not able to mention few of the things. However, all these things are ignorable in the light of sentiments attached with this song. Unfortunately, our politicians have sold their every inch of soul and they can do any disrespectful act towards anybody. Things can not be forced on anybody and it should not be like this. If Muslims, Sikhs or other communities do not want to sing it then it OK. But really an ordinary man against Vande Mataram or some of the leaders are making it an issue.

All these issues are making us a divided nation with Hinduism on one side and other communities on other side. Further, Hindu’s are again divided into different castes and communities, making India a nation of few castes, religions and regions. In coming years it will be very difficult for us to search an Indian because then every one will be a Brahman, Schedule caste/tribe, Backward class, Muslim, Christen, Sikh or other castes. Controversy on Vande Mataram is a starting of this time where people will be less Indian and more individually oriented. This was not the dream of leaders of India who fought for its independent.

Wildlife sanctuaries are under threat in India

Most of wildlife sanctuaries in India, which are protecting endangered wildlife and flora, are coming under threat from various parts of human life. Many state governments are altering or allowing altering with the areas of these sanctuaries. Other problem is created by the illegal mining or illegal encroachment of forest land. In recent survey, it is found that most of Indian wildlife sanctuaries have lost considerable land to government acquisition or land grab by mafia. Many big dam and rail projects are become threat to these sanctuaries.

Illegal mining is another concern which is hearting the biodiversity of these sanctuaries and causing ecological imbalance. Only after the recent order of Supreme Court of India, few steps are taken to remove these illegal land grabs and stop land mining in wildlife sanctuaries . State governments under pressure from land mafia or due to corruption are allowing degradation of forest lands. In many state forest guards are not provided with weapons to deal with illegal activities. The pressure of money and development has stopped many people in society and government to think about environment.

People are ready to sacrifice their wildlife wealth to get the worldly wealth. Due to these activities many species of endangered animals have come under great threat. An example can be taken from the recent episode from a wildlife sanctuary in Rajasthan from where all the Tiger got totally extinct. We as a society are becoming more concerned about our own well being and that may be at the cost of some innocent animals and beautiful forests . Situations are bound to become alarming if nothing is done in near future to preserve these sanctuaries.

Why people use me?

This is a very common question asked by many people in this world because many people at some part of their life felt as being used by other humans. This is common story in this world. A girlfriend feel used by a boy friend, a wife feel used by her husband, a son may feel used by parents or a friend may feel used by other friends. Humans are really selfish in their motives and can go up to any extent to fulfill them. It is easy to exploit emotions of another human being and use him or her as per own desires, then to do the same hard work himself.

People who are highly skilled in human emotion try to create false conditions in front of other humans (prays) which look so convincing to the pray that it starts working as per the direction of this person. Some people use their sweet voice, some use their emotions and some use their psychological skills to make others convinced with them. These people not only convince us what slowly starts changing our behavior as per their need. Due to this a good person may starts behaving like a bad person.

The person whose behavior is altered by other person mostly does not know it or if able to know it then it is mostly after a long period of time. Some people in this world are so clever or so good actors that they easily create false conditions in front of us which are enough to convince us. These people are so expert in lying that a truth speaking people will look lying in front of them. Moreover these people know our weakness and use them to make us convince with them.

The other major problem with this issue is that many people exploit their life by becoming puppet in the hand of these people. Due to their effect people forget about right and wrong and so commit wrong deeds which are damaging for them. This way is very popular and widely used way to remove enemies because it does not create any responsibility on them and most of time enemy themselves lives the way for them. Be cautious if some one is using you it can be anyone or even you yourself.

Many other small, big, Indian and foreign institution are present in the business of housing loans like GE money, Sahara etc. All this makes a wider choice for people across India to choice among, however it is advisable to go for a trusted home loans provider with wider choices.

Can a rail link win the heart of Tibetan’s for China?

Recently, China completed a marvelous rail project to Tibet. This is a great work of dedication shown by China government to make Tibet one with itself. China knows that it needs to win the hearts of Tibetan people so that no problem comes in future in its relations with China. Still Dalai Lama's runs an exile government from Dharamsala in India which poses a constant threat to China because it doesn’t recognize China occupation of Tibet.

China has tried her best to increase connectivity with Tibet, may be to exploit the waste reservoir potential of Tibet. China is involved in many construction works of dams and other infrastructure works in Tibet. All this may look like a threat for neighboring nation India because it is increasing China’s penetration in to Tibet which can help China transporting army and animation in much faster pace.

However, China has got lot of advantage with this single project like first it shows its concern for Tibetan people, it increases its presence in Tibet and it can help China in transporting army good more easily. People in today world are more interested in better life style options provided by respective countries. If the needs of people are fulfilled with utmost commitment by a country then it can help in getting reciprocal commitment from people.

China works in Tibet is a work in this same direction which can result in losing grip of Dalai Lama on Tibet and increasing acceptance of China in Tibet. It is increasingly difficult to hold people of a nation together without doing any concrete work for them. Force can not help anymore un-performing governments to suppress people revolts. Therefore it is advisable for all the governments around the world to do concrete work to make their countries united and solid.

Beautiful house of my Grandfather

I remember the windows of my old house in my village Kanarag in tehsil Beijnath, Himachal Pradesh. The glasses in the window of house have different colors. All this makes a very beautiful look whenever a person saw it from a distance. Moreover all this become more beautiful in the landscapes of big hills behind. It was only our house in whole village which has these colored glass windows. Therefore in childhood I always feel proud of being associated with this house.

Though, I am not able to visit this house for last three years, but planning to visit it in next few months. At that time for the first time, I released the importance of beautiful windows and there effect on the beauty of whole home. I will say that this was the wisdom of my great grandfather Late She Uttam Chand Katoch to make a best choice available 60 years back. Today’s world is full of many-2 options which are much ahead of that time.

Moreover, inside window decorations also have taken advancement with the availability of much kind of window blind & shade products in the market. Some of the choices include wood blinds, faux wood blinds, mini blinds, and vertical blinds. Definitely if my grandfather was alive at this time then he must have also chosen some of best options available. Still I praise him for choosing the best available option of his time and making our house a memorable moment in my life. I have crossed many years of my childhood while seeing through these windows. Really small things chosen with care can create lot of difference. I will try to publish few of pictures of my old house in coming future.

Use of fear and ideal societies

Fear has always remained a weapon in the hands of strong people, which caused many weaker people to follow them. Indian societies are mostly built on fear. Here son fear from father, wife fears from husband, sister fears from brother and small or poor fears from big or rich. This fear factor has helped in taking our society a more ideal look. Our society is a society build on high human interference. Here most of children are dependable on their parents even some times after crossing their young hood. I have seen many of friends who are employed and are earning well but they are still not able to take their independent decisions. They even today fear from their parents and want them to take every decision for their life. Even in society there are many people who are doing the small or inhuman jobs but due to the fear of losing them they are quite. There are many people in society who are tolerating inhuman activities against them but are silent due to the fear of more harm done to them. Many private players in India have also exploited this fear factor for their own growth. These companies mostly select people who have high level of fear factor so that they also can exploit them. Moreover, the chances are that a person with high fear factor will not stand against them. I am not against fear factor, but I am against the outcomes of these fear factors. Many parents who doesn’t allow there children to take independent and fearless decisions, some where make them not fully grown human beings. Due this weakness, these people remain frustrated and even some time restore to tranquilizers. All this makes our society an ideal society where everyone obeys but it become a society of weak and fearful people. Some people are so much frightened by their parents or society that they remain in false fears for whole life. Why we are not able to take any lesson from birds and make our children more fearless and independent? Why society doesn’t become an equal player for all? For you, I may look an advocate of strong society with strong and fearless people, may be there are few people who are rebellions in it. But this society has the power to make every dream possible which is lying ideal for so many years.

Bribe a custom in India

Giving and taking bribe is a common phenomenon is most of the Asian countries. India can be given a high rank in all these corruptions. Recently some of my friends are happy to see rank of Pakistan more down as compared to India in a recently conducted study on corruption by leading world organization. The countries which are ranked higher are termed as least corrupt nation and the countries which are ranked lower are termed as more corrupt nation. This survey is done across most of the nations.

Developed countries like Canada, US got ranked among top five nations and therefore come under the category of least corrupt nations, where as most of the Asian countries have rank below 100 except Singapore. India has rank in the range of 140 and Pakistan in the range of 150. Making them both one the most corrupt nations in world. It hardly matter at these ranks to have ten more ranks because ground realities are same in both nations. It is possible to do any kind of work whether possible or not by giving bribes.

It is possible to make the death certificate of a living person and to make dead a living one. All this is possible by giving small bribe of Indian rupees 500 or $ 10 to clerk in municipal offices. Many of such cases were repeatedly highlighted by various media across the both nations. In government department or in big private companies, from a small peon to big officer, all are involved in corruption. Many officer or even clerks have big properties or bank balance on their names, which they can not otherwise attain through their salary.

Every Indian has accepted bribe as a common custom, which is required to be done for getting a work done. For the last 60 year, all this is going in same state. However, slowly with the increase of surveillance of media and IT department some of these people are lying in jails. This may be a tip of iceberg. Many efforts are required to change this whole scenario because many problems are required to solved before expected a fair deal from these employs. All these issues require a greater social debate and are beyond my power to comment on because inside we all are corrupt.
