Why is it in India that whatever opportunity we get we fail to utilise to its fullest. Every channel has come up with their exclusive footage, some exclusive info about how its a big money gamble, how the aam aadmi and his money has all gone in vain and how games are nothing but a big gamble and ghotala. With every political party trying to make their own statements. Opinions and counter opinions, its all a mess. Few days to go and Delhi still looks the same if not worse. Few hours of rain and the next day the front page has headline “ ROADS TURN INTO RIVERS IN CAPITAL CITY”...
Instead i and am sure every Indian would have liked to watch the rehearsals for the inauguration ceremony, news channels showing us the outstanding stadias which have been built by our money which we paid as tax. I had heard the Chief Minister saying on TV earlier this year when prices rose, that Delhi people are well off we can pay a little extra because at the end of the day these stadias will be our property in the future...well ma’am “the general public has paid, can we have the stadias if not for future use just for the games completely ready!!”
An apex committee was set up in 2005 "to oversee and co-ordinate" the event. This committee exists only on paper and has not held a single meeting. we surely can't expect work to be complete if this is the approach. There are few politicians who have also said that this money could have been used for the poor and underprivileged in our country. They are right but the bid for CWG was made way back...now when a month is left for the event...we cannot sit to argue as to if the games should take place or not!!
By missing deadlines, fear of stadias not being ready in time, overshooting expenses, allegations, counter allegations and ever "chalta hain" and "jugaad" attitude we are once again nowhere. We now have CWG brand ambassadors cluelessly asking "what are we meant to do??". On top of this the tendencies of Indian organisers to blame international companies for the current woes is causing the tight-knit sports world to laugh at the Indian attempts to avert away from the mess. Such is the condition that the government has now decided to look into the matter and the PM is supposed to now visit the games site personally. Isn’t it too late with just few days left? Well, nothing is ever late in India.
Its so sad to see the word corruption in everything and anything in our country! Two of the biggest sporting events in our country this year is surrounded by curroption chareges earlier this year IPL 3 and CWG now. With top names like Usain Bolt backing out and few others not turning up, we are sure in a fix. Instead of practicing for the games, its so depressing to see Saina Nehwal and Leander Paes commenting that hopefully stadiums will be ready as the date draws near.
Well the other day a professor in my college was saying we can do one thing for sure and that is pray, hope and wish that the games happen and with no difficulty. We are in anyway not expecting a FIFA repeat we just want the games to happen. Few more days and we will see as to how much of what Mrs.Sheila Dixit and Mr.Suresh Kalmadi have been reiterating that the “its all media speculations and that the games will be a success” comes true....i wish that happens and so does India............

This week’s gonna be special, it’s gonna be different as I enter a new life. I also enter into my seventeenth year this Friday and along with my laptop, mobile and wardrobe changing I move from being that girl in school uniform to a girl who has to find that right dress which I wanna wear in the college next day.
We all are taking a step forward in our life and walking into a new world awaiting a whole new experience which hopefully will be memorable and everlasting for all of us………..

It is disappointing to write that FIFA 2010 World cup is reaching its end since past one month has been a roller-coaster ride for all sports enthusiasts. After all it was the biggest sporting extravaganza going on in
You can love it, hate it but can’t ignore it. I was someone who never followed soccer seriously. But this time I felt “better I start following FIFA or else I am gonna be completely bored for month or so, as FIFA is everywhere news, papers, magazines, billboards, facebook, twitter everywhere”. You just can’t get enough of it. Young, children, old, girls, everyone are glued to their television sets. Its one sport which unites the world like nothing else, like no other sport. This happens once in four years.
Every household brims with talk of the game, with fans screaming for each goal and breaking bottles when their favorite team crashed out. Football evokes such passionate emotions that a teen died because
Amidst all this hype being an Indian in the past month I couldn’t escape a thought. “I fail to understand why
As fans eagerly await FIFA 2014 world cup, action shifts to

On 5th July Bharat bandh was the most popular topic on twitter. Very rarely do we see an Indian trending on twitter. This time bharat is trending for probably the most wrong reason possible. With someone from
Bandhs are way of protest against some issue or policy. But in
Bandhs are declared only in
I don’t understand how this public display of caring for the common man by the opposition is going to reduce the price of my dal and chawal? Is this one day of disruption of public life going to reduce the price of petrol tomorrow? The opposition argued that this was the only way that they could get the government take notice of the concern of the aam aaadmi? Ok so now let’s see what the government is going to do in the next few days? Nothing is gonna happen. Tomorrow all will be normal. Parties will continue blaming each other and play politics and when after two months government hike’s prices yet again we all will be gifted with yet another holiday. I heard a parent whose kids school was closed due to bandh say “Various kinds of bandh need to be included in the holiday list of school calendar so that we can plan our holidays better”. Ya not a bad idea!!
Lets please use some other productive and fruitful way of protesting. Bringing the country to a standstill, wreckage and vandalism is certainly not a way to protest...........

Ruth E. Renkel once said “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance”. Very true every child’s feeling towards his/her dad are based on the amount of love that father’s shower on us. Father’s are ones who just know how to put together everything. The most important thing in one’s childhood is father’s protection.
We love our dad unconditionally not because he gifts us the best but because he is there whenever we are in need of him…..
THANK YOU PAPA......

While walking down the
Two years of hard work and students who have scored 90% will get into a good college but what about those who just fell short of it by few per cent? How bad is 80%? Bad because people console you by saying “80% is good enough for class XII” and irritating because you will go mad rushing from college to college checking your name in the cut off lists. You feel awful that “I can’t get through country’s best college just because I feel short by few %” Is it a crime you have committed by scoring 80%? Why is it that we study only for marks? The person who has got 80 is unhappy because he didn’t get a 85, one with 85 is upset of not entering the elite 90 club and the most shocking at times you wonder (what is he or she saying) “I got a 97…how is it possible…maine toh pura paper kiya tha…I expected a 100 yaar”.
Our dreams are only made of marks. Sometimes I wonder what all or what not we have studied in our school life? After all we have studied about Akbar, European colonialism and magnetism and periodic table all together till class 10. And when you reach class 11 where you are reminded in class “beta aapne science li hain, baaki sab chod do toh behtar hoga” (baaki sab includes everything other than studying). Your parents remind you that you are supposed to crack IIT and do your family proud. And students in arts and commerce are reminded about the cut-offs that the DU colleges closed their admissions in last session. And you in your classes take your pen completely apart and put it back together when bored.
Why is it that if you fall short of 5 marks of scoring 100 you are rejected by the country’s best college? By any chance if you had not known a 5 mark question in your board paper, does that make you less intelligent than one’s who knew it? Lack of seats in universities, reservations and peer pressure all are responsible for student life going waste. No wonder this peer pressure leads to students committing suicides and the increase in number of counselors in
I really wish students had enjoyed studying for themselves and not for their parents, relatives and neighbors. Wish that every career and stream is granted equal respect. Wish people start realizing there’s life beyond being a doctor and engineer. It is high time that people realize education is way beyond marks on your report card. We need “An education which makes a child sad when the last bell is rung at the end of the day in the school”...........

He asked few kids there “why there is no power?”. Well that’s one question which Rahul Gandhi can only answer. He asked young kids “to read English and learn computers”. Well I really hope his desire comes true and every Indian becomes educated. So what brought Gates in this 43-degree heat to rural India? Gates being the individual he is replied “The beauty of the land and the serenity of the rivers, it is a wonderful feeling. I feel very good. You can notice it.” Well beauty and exquisiteness of India and Indians is something that attracts everybody across the globe. Here’s hoping Indians continue to promote the beauty of our country so that it truly becomes a developed nation, a nation which is sought after……

May be P.Chidamabram (home minister) is right in saying "Kasab's verdict vindicates India" but is it enough to sentence Kasab? Will his death pacify and appease us? India wants justice. Wounds are wet and will remain so in a long time to come. 26/11 (or for that matter any such awful and horrific terror attack) is a loss which we can never forget. We have had enough of this nonsensical act by few. The utmost important factor for development in general is peace and brotherhood and the utmost dangerous threat to this is undoubtedly terrorism. It is high time we come together and as the 11 year old victim of 26/11 say not fear anything. We might not have the power to tackle this large issue but we can at least try on our part to spread peace and serenity in our miniature ways in order to make this world a better place to live in........

But the real shift was reality TV. Welcome to the world of reality shows. Reality TV before 3 years was not known in our country. It is the place where the reality meets fiction. Reality shows made a big entry into the lives of the ordinary people since it helped them to get rid off the clutches of the monotonous soap serials. Strange that within such a short time we have seen reality shows of all kind. Reality shows are either in the form of talent hunts (like singing, dancing, acting etc), game shows, celebrity shows, makeover shows or confessions. Reality shows give a good platform or an opening to the talented ones. But very soon everyone realized that it was ten minute fame and a permanent success for very few who are really talented. India’s first reality music show was Indian Idol. Now the show is back with its fifth season. Who remembers contestants of earlier seasons?? Barring few whom the public is familiar with, courtesy their reappearances on television screens in various shows. We have had a swayamvar (have never really got who the contestants are??) and a next season of swayamvar. When we thought we can’t have anymore we had a series of unbelievable reality shows Iss jungle se mujhe bachao, pati, patni aur woh and sach ka saamna which led to parliamentary debates and people commting suicides. We have seen it all. But the question is how much real are these reality shows? Idiot Box was the name given to TV. Wonder what will be the new name??Not to forget that we have filmstars on TV now. After Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan hosted KBC we had every other actor and actress (many who have no work in films anymore) on out TV screens. For film promotions or self promotions we have everybody who is anybody on television. There is a whole new breed of stars who are now known as reality TV stars which includes Rakhi Sawant and Rahul Mahajan. Even news channels have seen a shift(though they still report news). The breaking news phenomenon in our Indian news channels has gripped the country. We want fresh news everytime we are infront of TV. We are bored of repeat of the same news and are constantly looking for new stories. Be it the live reporting of the 26/11 Taj rescue operation or the Sania-Shoaib saga or the IPL scam. Its been a year of breaking news. Now the question is there a need of break on news??
How important is TV for us?? We can’t live a single day without it I guess. Anything that strikes the emotional chord is an instant hit in our country. So what are we going to see next on TV??(just hope we do not have a reality show where people die for money, after all UK has seen Jade Goody’s death on TV ). We need something fresh, new and productive as well?? Till then we can sit back and enjoy what ever changing and varying shows that the television channels have to offer...........

When in 2008 he bought KKR people bursted with joy that their favorite actor also has a cricket team. Soon KKR was all over the place. Shah Rukh did his best in establishing the team and it became a huge brand. Unfortunately KKR couldn’t break into 2008 semis. All we fans thought there’s always a next time. Then in the next season everyone was high on hope. But nothing worked and KKR once again crashed out. This year too KKR could not reach the semis. Three years is enough for somebody to get completely tired and exhausted. And then all along there were detractors. People said SRK should go back to films, why is he wasting time, he is selling the team (despite srk clarifying million times that he’s not selling KKR) and many criticized him. There were times when we fans were frustrated as well. People had so many opinions to provide-"why aren’t the players playing well, this player should be given a chance, he shouldn't play, why isn’t the team winning??"
In these 3 years one man who all through remained positive, full of determination and grit was Shah Rukh Khan. He never lost hope and kept on trying hard to make KKR do well for us die-hard fans. I have always believed and I am sure all agree with me he is the most inspirational and motivating team owner a team can have. People are amazed by his level of patience and tolerance. We have seen so many different avatars of Shahrukh but truly with KKR we have learnt trying till the end, never giving up hope. If you read his tweets or for that matter just watch living with a superstar you will very well realize how sad and disappointed he feels when his team losses. But his willpower and perseverance is inimitable. As Karan Johar tweeted “SRK is a truly motivating and inspiring team owner. More power to him”. Shahrukh has always said that he wants young kids to get inspired by KKR. I must say on behalf of all KKR and SRK fans-“if not by KKR on field we are indeed inspired by your passion, positivity, vision, patience and abundant foresight”. Hats off to SRK.
Shah Rukh often says "If you hate losing enough...you will surely win", " you never leave hope for the ones you love..so KKR will be back inshallah.", "I am just hurt a little not yet slain…lay me down to bleed a bit...I will rise again", "people who don't know perseverance and passion make me who I am". Whatever circumstances ever come one thing is for sure Shah Rukh Khan will be back next year and the next year and the year after and so on..... This blog can't end here. I hope and wish that KKR will win in the future so that I can complete this blog of mine.........

Have just created my own blog. It feels great and nice to share my thoughts which i usually pen down. There is so much happening around you that you are bound to have your own views and suggestions on diverse issues. Through blogs i wish to reach a lot more people and share my feeling and opinions on various topics......
This as some say will improve my writing skills, help me in developing a better sense of understanding, help me ahead in my career. But unlike all of the above i feel it will just help me put my thoughts across......
