this is election time in india,when people tell me that democracy is the best form of the government were the lagaan is with the people and its people's choice and wish that determines and makes a difference. ideally speaking, ya democracy going by its definition of the people , for the people and by the people must respect the citizen, by its virtue of definition of democracy people are the rulers of the rulers, but does this really happen?? daily when i switch on the tv news channels, the news we see daily is some leader distributing money to his constituency people , or some politicos lashing and bashing at the opponents, that too in an unruly way, spreading hate, the behaviour of parties , partymen, and thier henchmen all are frustrating. i accept that democracy is the best machinery! but best when its proper at all the levels and perfection at various levels. democracy= opportunism , nothing more that that. in olden days we had monarchy, we had a king who can rule us, we had some great visionaries as kings like the mauryans, akbar etc, similairly we had blood thirsty and power thirsty people like genghis khan etc. monarchy makes a person to think that he is not answerable to any one, and the monarchy becomes a dictatorship. army rule is another option, yes indeed it has its own merits like discipline and law n order under control. indeed the army has a bunch of dedicated people, who love the country more than themself. but again law cant be forced, i strongly believe that laws has to be understood and abide rather than forcing. army rule doesnt seems to be a longterm option. the problem with our country is that , the reform must begin with u and me, when we ourself wait for the next person to be perfect and blame others and do the same mistake, which we are blaming on others, what kind of progress is this? we people have a mass or rather a mob mentality when some one does something all of us run and do the same, but we dont want ourself to step out from our safety zone. life is about taking risks, it doesnt matter whether we will win or loose, but its about intentions, and determinations. let us be the change. let the revolution begin from us. from within. exercise ur right to vote. select the candidate rightly . dont look upon his party , his caste , ur personal benefit, religion, but about his qualifications, it doesnt matter even though u know he will loose in election, but even then u can be happy about making ur choice right. please do vote and vote for right persons to represent ur voice.

this time i am going to tell u the best and most easiest investment plan, which when u execute it properly, u wud never ever cease to get the returns, that too the returns u will be getting will be 100 times more than what u hav invested and that too u get it within a span of five years. but provided u have some qualifications, and talents. this is the right time for the investment , mostly such an opportunity comes only once in 5 yr, some times it comes intermediately!! it depends. the investment is untouched by the economic crisis, and it will also guard ur generations and make them billionaires too, if they r also having the qualification they can turn millions to billions. qualification which are required includes a great communication ability, the ability shud be such that u should make people believe that whatever things u r telling is truth. u r better qualified if u have some ability to express ur emotions or enact ur emotions publicly. education doesnt matter, even if ur educated , forget the manners and good( if any) habbits that u have acquired during ur education days, try to be as stubborn as u could be even though u know that these things are trivial and doesnt matter, it doesnt matter whether ur 8th class failure or harward university u have to be as stupid as possible. the most important qualification is that u shud never try to solve the disputes, but just remain a spectator so that let them fight and die. also even though you have never read any book it doesnt matter atleast you should blabber some quotes from some books and show your self as knowledged. it could be better if u r an athelete in ur school days, so that u can save ur self by jumping from one side to the other, and if required need to run miles, somersault will be highly useful. so i hope u understood about the investment which am speaking, IN INDIA ELECTIONS R COMING!!!!!!

This is one such incident which happens very rarely in India. My country with its vast varieties of people , and with more people below the poverty mark, rarely we will see some acts of inspiration from the bottom, which make us think are we really up to the standard?. The virtues shown by people who are so called low class sometime excel the acts of charity of million dollars by people who are doing it for the pomp. I just experienced one soul drenching, illuminating moment as i am writing this, i just wanted to share immediately the excitement, the joy and happiness of meeting one such indian, who has illuminated my soul. may be the incident may sound silly to readers, but one who knows what India is all about truly knows the impact of this
incident. Today was just another day until i struck upon the event. Today there is petrol shortage in my city chennai, hence my lecturer called me and asked me to wait for him, as his vehicle was dry. Hence we both started to our college free medical camp which is organised at mudichur every tuesdays and fridays. as we entered, i went to my friends and we were kidding each other, and didnt do any work :) just whiling away the time, patients were coming and going.
By 10.45 we asked our sir for a tea break and started out, just had a nice walk and we were at tea shop, it was my friend kavitha who called me, she was there at camp. Wondered why she is calling? thought she would need some biscuits are coffee for her self, thinking so i reluctantly attended the call. She told me that you just come immediately , pavani has left her mobile in the bus itself . umm now i understood the problem pavani one of my classmates and a cool friend has expensive mobile at least worth of 10,000 bugs or more. She is actually pretty cautious unlike me (for info successfully so far mysteriously 3 mobiles of mine have disappeared!!) .I told the guys i am leaving there and told the problem, and started off. My lecturer was waiting, he told that she had left her mobile in 55m bus( that goes from tambaram to mannivakkam), and she just now told that she had left in the bus, and sir called her number. a man attended and informed that mobile was with him, and he is in mannivakkam right now, and asked to come and get the mobile as soon as possible. I was surprised , so even after taking a mobile with him that too expensive, he is replying us coolly!! i was not told clearly about neither his whereabouts nor about his details or identity, infact not even his name!!. hence me and pavani started our journey. we came to natesan school and he had told some school near and again we called him, his descriptions were a bit confusing indeed, we just roamed around that school in search of a barbershop and teashop which he told as identity. he told that he is in a house were some painting work is carried on, and pink colour was the paint. As the place looked doomed , a sudden streak of fear ran through my mind, was it safe with a girl by your side to go to an unknown locality to meet an unknown person? she also felt the same, what if this was a trick to trap pavani? (too much of detective novels and movies !!!) but any way we didnt want to take the risk, i called kannan and asked him to come to the place were we will be waiting. On the way i drove in to a ditch and she jumped from her seat and was in air for a few seconds , and fortunately no damage for any one. We again called him, and still was not able to understand the exact location. Kannan spoke with them and he partly understood the place, he asked us to wait and he will go and look around. we were waiting there , i told pavanai, that he may expect some thing(of course money), and decided 50 will do. later kannan called us and told that he has found the place and asked us to come. so we went and we found that the locales he was giving was exactly there. and down in a lane atlast we found the house were the painting was done. we stood there. i told kannan, how much should we give? i think they will expect something, he said wait we will give something after he asks for. why to give on our own? and kept my wallet back in to my pant pocket. 2 men came down the stairs, as shabbily as they could have ever been dressed, painters attire- the paint stained clothes, not more than 30 years of age. They came and asked pavani, "is this your cell?" she replied"ya" , they had her cell in the front pockets of the trouser of one of them, her cells shining green velvette pouch was in contrast to the shabby greasy attire of the man. he further spoke on " shouldnt you be more careful? we were waiting since morning for a call, we ourself thought of calling someone, hereafter better never be careless like this have it" he gave the pouch to her, i thanked him, so was she and kannan, we all thanked them and internally i was thinking so how much this fellow is expecting and when he will open the mouth, i dont have 50rs change just a hundred rupee note is there, alas there i had the second surprise they just left without further word, and were back in the duty, we also started and as i kicked my bike and started, we would have just travelled 10 feet, i felt a sting in my
heart, no you shouldnt do that his virtue , his nermai- honesty have to be rewarded, recognised, we indians always fail to recognise such acts! he will think next time before handling back the item to its owner, what benefit had i got? i stopped the vehicle, turned back my head to pavani with these thoughts in my mind, hell was she a mindreader!! she told "suneel shouldnt we give something? he has not even asked for" ya i told her yes we should, and turned my vehicle and came back. i saw them standing in the terrace, i just signalled him, just come down, i could see some panic in his face and as well as his fellow mates, they would have thought oh now these people are going to complain where is my 100 rs note i kept inside the pouch!! he came down
reluctantly from the stairs, i went to him, gave 100 rs to him, oh alas the third biggest surprise !! he refused to take it, i said "no you should take this its for your attitude, and i felt that i needed to hug him, yes i hugged him, the happiness i had was something that nourished my soul, he was just as reluctant as he was and just went about his work with a smile. Pavani was happy, kanna was smiling, and i relentlessly thank god for giving me a role , a witness to the great act of an unknown indian, i still dont know his name, but i will always remeber his face whenever some one utters the word "HONESTY". Life is not a complicated thing, these simple men and simple acts teaches us tons and tons of lessons, then any textbook could have ever taught us. Listen your heart, joy is inevitable. I thank god who made pavani to loose her cell, else i would never had this experience. India's soul lies not in its militairy power, not in its it companies, not even in cricketers or the entertainers, its just these bunch of simple people who make the country stand tall because of there illustrious attitudes.
Finally the year 2008 has passed on and another year has dawned, a new year, set of new
opportunities, set of new tasks and challenges to be faced, a new set of goals to be achieved. The
life itself is a great teacher, a master par excellence as it unfolds , its the experience that counts.
I wonder in the past 1 yr how many days i could recall exactly what i did, it could be probably
25- 30 days at the maximum!! so what have i done to rest of my time!!? We all have this
problem, its time to think have we lived our life to its fullest extent as we thought?, its time to
look back, to decide our next step we need to recollect the past. I have decided to document my
life and thoughts in a dairy from this year, and so far am successful, hope i will follow the entire
year. 2008 , had its momments of history, the obamas victory has made this entire world to
look out for a change, though the illinois senator is no magician , he cant just change the world
with his whisk of a wand. Let us hope and wait that something good happens in trying times. As
an Indian , the act that shook up me would naturally be the attack of timids on the mumbai
killing innocent lives. I am praying god for a year where no such incidents repeat anywhere in
the world. again this new year has began with bombings of gaza by israelis.
Let this year be the full stop of all such activities were human life is lost in vain.
The economic turmoil will be overcome for sure.
In this new year i pray god to give me courage and to all people, atleast this time we shall live
our life which we have dreamt for.
Let us be unflinching from our goals and perceptions.
Let us live our life fully , and enjoy the life as we travell through the various pages of the great
book of life with fascination and enthusiasm at the heart.
Let us forget the sin of others in the past, and forgive the sins of our own.
Let us be equipped in all measures to face the odds of life and be resolute that when we come out
we w ill be a better person.
Let us cultivate the love within, the divine radiance shall spread to ourself , our family ,
neighbours, pets, street, town, city , state, country and to this entire world, let the light from our
heart carrying love and hope spread to the entire world and provide strength to the weak,
provide hope to the dispaired, provide energy to those exhausted, provide happiness to all.
Let us be more human than ever and be sensitive to our fellow passengers, afterall its
coexistence that has made us surviving species in this world.
Let us be more conscious about our body and its needs and attending to its needs.
Let us live and dance to the tunes of nature , in harmony with it.
Let us be more truthful to our self,and and fellow beings.
Let us expand our limits, and not just get shrunken in to a shell.
Let us have no fear, and pure courage which is sensible shall guide as through.
WITH THESE WISHES AND EXPECTATIONS...
WISHING YOU ALL A GREAT YEAR. OF JOY AND GREAT MOMMENTS AHEAD.
