I read somewhere that India is the most diverse place on earth after African Continent. I heard someone saying that India is the place to be. I was taught in social studies during my schooling that India is a perfect example of Unity in Diversity
But a recap of events in past two months, be it Delhi rape case, be it the rape-cases that followed it, be it the Indo-Pak relations, be it Viswaroopam issue, I believe that the three statements I wrote above were like the obsolete Symbian OS of Nokia. This brings in the question,
“How far have we matured as a society?”
Unfortunately, the answer would be a big NO.
Why? Continue reading
It’s a shame on us that our National Animal, The Tiger, has gone down to such a low number and is at the verge of extinction. From around 40,000 at the turn of the last century, there are just 1411 tigers left in India. Common fellow Indians!!! Wake Up and be a part in saving our beloved Tiger.
As the present generation of this country, if we fail to save our National Animal we will remain as a black mark in the history forever and be praised to be the successful generation of implementing the extinction of tigers. Do you want the future generations to read, “Once upon a time in India, tigers lived”? Do you want to be termed as the best generation to perform the worst actions? We have already achieved a sort of this in fields like communal riots, corruption, politics and what else do you want to include in the list, huh? Common! Just think for a while.
Let’s at least save our very own “Warrior of the Jungle”. Its time to change ourselves. As Gandhiji said “Be the Change you want to see in the world” Let that change start with you right now. Take an active role in saving our tigers. Spread the word. Save Tiger.
Watching a TV or chatting over net are not the only things that gives you pleasure. Things of this sort would also give you the ultimate satisfaction for doing something good in saving an entire race.
Common!!! Take an active part. Spread the word “Save Tigers”

I have already started spreading the word “Save Tiger” and trying my best to create awareness among people about what we are going to loose if we don’t act. What are you going to do???

It’s been over 62 years we are living with out you. We miss you a lot. But the path you have set for us will be remembered, in the hearts of millions of people around the world, for the generations to come.
I still remember me asking my dad “Who is Gandhi thatha?”. I think I was 4 years old at that time. (thatha means grand pa in Telugu)
The answer I got from my dad was “Gandhi Thata means Truth. Ahimsa is called Gandhi. I am your father. Similarly, Gandhi Thatha is the father of India. He is the father to me, mom, sis, your friends, your teachers and all of us. He brought freedom to our country”
The answer is the one of the best answers I got for the question “Who is Gandhi?”
Recently, I was chatting with my friend in g-talk. We were talking on everything under the sun and I asked him “Who is Gandhi thatha?”
This is what opinion he has on Gandhi and I was really…really disappointed on hearing it and that too from an Indian.
Today is our Republic Day. I have seen flag hosting and patriotic songs sung everywhere. The electronic media was trying to spread the importance of this day in their very “own style”. The newspapers, which I’ve seen in the morning, were completely flooded with anecdotes of important events in the 60 years of Republic India. Yes, this is all on one side of the coin. But on the other side, the very thought of “Why celebrate Republic Day???” haunted me the entire day.
Don’t get carried away by the opinion that I have no respect towards my motherland, India. I do have, in abundance. But today, there was something new in my thought process on Republic Day.
I was surfing through the TV channels and finally came to a halt at NDTV around 8:45PM and there was a debate going on hosted by well known lady of the show, Barkha Dutt. There was some hot discussion going on and hardly I could hear words like language, no compromise, China as there was a cross conversation going on. I was about to change the channel when I got a catch of a scrolling running in the bottom which means:
“Should we need to have a common language and is Hindi the answer to it?”
The topic was quite interesting to me as I heard the word China from one of the person speaking. So I got tuned in to the show. Continue reading
How many of us really remember the significance of today? How many of us knew about what happened to our country 10 years ago??
Very few, 10 in 100 may be a high estimation.
The peaceful Kashmir valley, the abode of Himalayas, was terrified by the attack of militants. This was quite normal for our soldiers as they fight against them, almost every day. But they were unaware of the fact that this would turn out to be a great war with Pakistan. Pakistan supported these militants under currently and it sent its troops to the Kargil and Dras sectors to fight against our soldiers.
What can I do about this? Continue reading
