Seven Commandments

As a part of our 12th class syllabus, we read The Animal Farm by George Orwell. I really loved the book, specially the Seven Commandments. These were a list of seven rules or laws that were supposed to keep order and ensure elementary animalism within the Animal Farm. The Seven Commandments were designed to unite the animals together in a common cause against the humans and to prevent animals from following the humans' evil habits:

  • Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
  • Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
  • No animal shall wear clothes.
  • No animal shall sleep in a bed.
  • No animal shall drink alcohol.
  • No animal shall kill any other animal.
  • All animals are equal.
Later as corruption engulfed the animal farm, some commandments got modified to suit the time.
  • No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets
  • No animal shall drink alcohol to excess
  • No animal shall kill any other animal without cause

Finally, the commandments merged into one - "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Truly, it reflects the current state of our society. How rules get manipulated to suit the law makers' needs and convenience !!!

GTalk or STalk ???

These days MTV shows a program called GTalk, hosted by two female roadies of '08 - Anmol & Shambhavi. Well, I liked the look of Shambhavi. So, as I was surfing through the channels, I got to watch some parts of this program on a Sunday afternoon. MTV showcases this program as Girly Gossips Unplugged. I watched it for some time, and later it made me feel so yuckky. Mann ... what the crap? These two girls were shown as though they are sitting in their stylish kitchen and gossiping. And the topics of gossip are - stinking arm pits of boys, autorickshaw driver touching their private parts and handing over curreny notes, men pissing by the side of the roads, stinking socks of men etc. etc. And from time to time both these girls are uttering just a single one liner - "It's so disgusting you know ..." Oh My Good God !!! What the F**k ??? Does girls do such shitty gossips that MTV had to glorify it through a program called GTalk? It should have been named as STalk (Shitty Talk). I wish Google sue MTV for using the name GTalk. This world is so unfair. There are people like me who work from 9 to 9 and still probably not earning as much as these girls are earning by just doing some crappy things onscreen. God Tussi Bahut Unfair Ho !!!

Eyes of a Stranger

All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what we had and what we knew
Everytime I try to leave it behind me
I see something that reminds me of you
Every night the dreams return to haunt me
Your rosary wrapped around your throat
I lie awake and sweat, afraid to fall asleep
I see your face looking back at me

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

Is this all thats left
Of my life before me
Straight jacket memories, sedative highs
No happy ending like theyve always promised
Theres got to be something left for me
And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare [lies behind my stare]

How many times must I live this tragedy
How many more lies will they tell me
All I want is the same as everyone
Why am I here, and for how long

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
Ive always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

The Holidays

blogging after a long time. We have our year end break started from today and my God... its 10 long days. I really don't have any idea what to do. Cleaning my house, washing my clothes and all house hold chores will just take some of my hours. And , I am getting nightmares thinking about sitting idle at home all day. But, I believe this is the right time to spend some time really with myself. May be I want to go somewhere far from the maddening crowd, a place where there is no telephone, no emails, no TV, no material thoughts... just me and myself. I wish ... such a place exists. So, finally I plan to spend a solitary vacation just with me. And, I really wish that I don't get bothered by any external factors. 10 long days ... just me, myself and my solitude.

WTF...

Last night I watched Subhash Ghai's Yuuvraj, and the the only thing which I uttered was "What The Fuck ?" I mean how can Subhash Ghai make such a crappy movie. The only thing worth watching in the movie was Katrina and the places of Europe. I feel pity for the people who must have watched the movie in theatres and wasted their hard earned money. Ghai saab must have realized what crap he was doing when he was making the movie. After all he is a matured film maker. Many "B" category movies will be better than Yuuvraj. Probably Ghai has forgotten the weightage of his name. After all, whats there in the name ?

The Feeling of Belonging...

26/11 - Mumbai Terror Attacks showed us how a feeling of belonging can unite us against the evils. Although I was among those millions of Indians who were sitting in front of TVs, in a state of utter anger, frustrated, desperate seeing their bleeding country; it was our Heroes in Uniform who put their lives in stake for the country. I can well imagine that it was not just beyond the call of duty but the security forces were doing something far more than that. The CCTV footage of CST showing two policement tackling the hardcore terrorists with just one primitive gun was truly inspiring for every Indian. It was a sense of belonging to this nation, to this society which gave them the energy and determination to those security personnels to face the bullets of the evil forces. If such a feeling ever come to the minds and hearts of our notorious politicians, probably our country will be a better place to live in. Our country is paying the price of filithy politics - be it Babri Masjid Demolition, be it Godhra Riots. And above all these is the politics which the British did 61 years ago - the Two Nation Theory. But the damage is already done. The need of the hour is to wake up and grow that feeling of belonging within us. The day when we achieve this, elements like LeT, JeM or any terrorist outfts will look like silly toilet germs, which can be killed with just any toliet cleaners. Amen...
