Mera Favourtie Word.....

"Why?..."
One word ....
It will get you Thinking,
Understanding,
Questioning....
Don't be satisfied with the "it has to be this way", "because I said so", "they said so, so it must be true", "Just"or "No reason" answers ....

Firstly ...with me .. the last two can be majorly disappointing conversation Killers!

And well there is almost always a reason behind everything.....

A satisfying answer just as unique as we are, that makes sense and resonates with our being.......(here I'm really not talking bout stuff like, "Why do U like Tea and Not Milk? " although..come to think of It there are good reasons hmm...I can elaborate ...But I'll spare U the trouble....)
Discovering such "answers" has given me great Joy ..and made life more meaningful..................

I Love "WHY"!!!

Its the best Word ever made ...invented ...spoken...
Question the world around you ...Its fun....

Embark on the journey of the "Why"!

All U need is an Open Mind and a Receiving Heart Books, the Internet, Patient parents, Supportive friends and a world that understands the obsession......:)

Who is it?

12/3/93, 11/7/06, 26/11/08...........................Etched ???humph.....




Spirit of Mumbai?



...or just an excuse to say that we will not do a thing yet again...
The beeping metal dectors at Churchgate echo my sentiments......


_/_/09?  _/_/10?  _/_/11?



It will happen....... it’s not coz I’m without hope for Peace...not because I’m a cynic ...but right now.. living in Mumbai..In India…In this world.. . I know.......



Is Kasab to blame?..

Or the handlers who trained him.. who thought him to kill till the last breath?

Or those who indoctrinated these handlers ?

Who indoctrinated them ?

Why didn’t anyone tell them this was not the way?

Who stood up to set an example???

Who stood Up against War?

...............U.S? U.K? Russia? India?

Is the death sentence for Kasab the answer?

What right do we have to tell these people to stop?

Our government isn’t exactly using Peace and Non Violence as Foreign Policy is it?



Do we as citizens use it?



Terrorism…It All started somewhere for a reason....... It wouldn’t have sustained if there wasn’t any reason for it to......



Every terrorist has a family

Every Terrorist has a Mother, a Father, a Brother, a Sister............

Every Terrorist is Grieved for by this family



Every Family member is human and therefore feels the anger feels the pain of losing someone they Loved.....Someone who laughed cried and played with them.........



Who killed him???

….Those people....

I’ll Kill them..............


(Relative of a terrorist or that of his Victim ....U decide)



Terrorist are but Humans passionate about a cause.. to such a point that they are ready to Kill and Die for it.....

What is the difference between those who killed the 140,000 people in Hiroshima and 8000 people in Nagasaki with two bombs deployed from thousand of miles above the ground ....


And

Those 10 people who came in on 26/11/08 and wrecked havoc in the city of Mumbai ..... killing 164 people .......and dying in the Process..

Whats the difference between the then U.S president Harry Truman ...and Kasab's handlers?

Which of these can truly be called Terrorist???


Ask the present generation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki who are still suffering from the physical after effects of the Atomic Blast.......

Ask those who are suffering from the emotional after effects of the 26/11 attacks......

Who are the Terrorist??

Is anyone willing to Forgive?
Will  we ever Forget?





"We will not stop until the last of them is Dead...and ________ is completely wiped off from the face of this earth"



The Voice of a terrorist...?

Or

A Cry of a Righteous citizen Seeking Justice...........





....U decide.

Exam Reasoning....

The Exams are approaching (tomorrow) and for once Im not biting my nails .....No No I haven’t become complacent ....I haven’t given up....No.....
But for once I just don’t care that much ......... Its not that the exams are not important ..its that they are not that important ..........

Studies and mugging can only do so much.......

It doesn’t teach me how to live,

How to stand up for myself,

How to deal with disappointments,

How to overcome "failures"......some of the most important lessons that we learn cannot be ...and will never be learnt in a classroom.

It can be learnt during long conversations with friends two days before exams, through silence, by just observing and listening to the world around you. The most important lessons are learnt through feelings of anger, jealousy, guilt, hopelessness, by participating in and experiencing life.

Right now I am taking charge of my life!! It feels so liberating and taking responsibility feels good!

I feel fully aware of the consequences of my actions and am ready to face it......

I am purposely not exactly studying today ............ because my mum’s stressing on it ... the more she says study, the more I don’t want to. I want to study because I want to study ...not because I want to please a Teacher, a Parent or an Aunt..............

Just had a row with my mum and she said I had a responsibility towards them..... I know I do ...but what about the responsibility that I have towards myself? Doesn’t that count for anything???

YEah I have been given a choice and I am thankful to my parents for working so hard that I have one ....but what’s the use of having a choice and then not using it?? I really want to be sure that what I am doing, I am doing because I want to do It ...even if I’m doing something for someone else it should be because I WANT to do it not because I HAVE to do it...... there lies the difference between feeling happy or resentful of one’s choice.

So the not so-important-exams here I come .......sunglasses on, sipping on refreshing coconut water floating on my buoy, relaxed, composed .........let tomorrow come ...Ill deal with it.

Here is a Quote that I put on Facebook a while ago…
"Education Boon or Bane??...depends on who U are ..........I mean....... Look at Einstein!!"   - Zena.
I don’t have anything against education as such, it is very important…..But here in India its not as flexible as it should be.... thats what I think anyway...
