POTATERS

We meet a lot of people in our day to day life, people with all kind of attitudes, habits,some funny, some serious, some cool, some outrageous, sometimes even stupid and the list goes on and on and on... i have met many and if you were wondering why i took such long to write my next post it's probably because of these encounters with and also coz of task of defining some definitions/categories to classify the people i have met and i admit its not an easy job requires lot of hard-work. I have managed to come up with some..

Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work. They are called "Spec Taters ".

Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work. They are called "Comment Taters" 

Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don't want to soil their own hands. They are called "Dick Taters". 

Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or to sweet.
They are called "Agie Taters".

There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing the promised help. They are called "Hezzie Taters".

Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not.
They are called "Immy Taters". 

Then there are those who love others and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sunshine into the lives of others.
They are called "Sweet Po Taters".

Looking for that Child...

The following post is just a thought which flowed through me couple of weeks back and thought of writing this to see what others think or feel, while writing this am still debating with myself..... 
Is this what we really dreamed of? 
Have we lost something? 
and there are so many questions going on if i didn't STOP now this post will contain only Questions???


One day, over the conversation with some of my colleagues, topic of Life came up and everyone had something to share be it about the struggle or the tough decisions one had taken or the sheer changes one had experienced but there was one thing on which everyone agreed that life changed drastically and they really missed those younger days where everything was simple and easy unlike today. We would have talked for an entire day about those days and the child we used to be had our Manager not interrupted and ordered us back to work.. :( :( 


Few days back while sitting in the balcony sipping my hot ginger tea with added love of my mother and some loud noises of laughter, shouts, i asked my mother, " what's happening mom, so much noise?? " she said, " vacations are on son " and then i saw a small army coming, some on bicycles, some walking holding their cricket bats, balls, stumps... and within no time each one of them had taken their position as if the battle was going to start in a few minutes. I didn't realize that a slight smile had broken on my face and how my mom noticed she said, " Remembering your childhood " i just smiled.... :) :)


It was on that fateful morning i relived my childhood moments those sweet, naughty, silly memories which were hidden some-where deep inside me or to say forgotten... In all these years the child that i used to be was lost somewhere in the jungles of responsibilities, work, commitments, deadlines, irregular schedules.... I forgot no matter how big you are or how old you are still, there is a child in you, in everyone, which is either lost or forgotten somewhere.When was the last time you made silly mistakes, played pranks, laughed as if there was no tomorrow, had silly fights, Katti-Batti, Batti-Katti was all you said when you were angry, and at the end it was again Batti.. :) :). It was those Hide-n-Seek games where you said Time-Please as you couldn't find a place to hide... :P :) . 


These are some of the most cherished moments that i will never forget and i bet everyone has some very sweet memories of the childhood and you might have even started thinking about them while reading this. Guys if you really want to enjoy your life don't let your inner child to get lost in those jungles.


Remember " Only two types of people are happy in this world, Mad people and Children ".
You choose what you want to become, mad person always involved in work, commitments, surrounded by stress and tension or a child always happy and jovial no matter what happens.












P.S:-  No matter how old you are always indulge those things which you enjoy or make you happy irrespective of what others think coz " Dil toh Bacchha Hai Ji

Zodiac Tadka

Many people believe in Zodiac, sun-signs, compatibility with other people, with friends and are curious to know what lays in future for them.
Everyone of us has some friends with whom we are comfortable, happy and love their presence and also some friends whom we despise, hate them and wish they were not there whenever we are in good mood or happy.....
Have you wondered why????  They are same as other friends but still we dislike them....

I think the Zodiac Signs will answer this.......

This is what i came to know from one of my Friend. It says....................

Never Believe in Three people (Sagittarius, Aquarius, Pisces)-- They are Selfish and Mean

Never Lose Three People (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)-- They are most Sincere and true lovers.

Never Share with Three People (Cancer, Libra, Scorpio)-- They never keep secrets and always cheat.

Never Reject Three People (Gemini, Aries, Leo)-- They are true friends and never think bad for anyone.

So next time if you feel your secrets are out or you were used for someone else's gain you know whom to blame or which friend of your's is responsible.......

Candle v/s 'S' candal

Letter to Prime minister from Typical Aam Aadmi  from Mumbai


Dear Prime Minister,

Hello from typical Aam Aadmi from Mumbai.

Since last two days, I am hearing from you and your spokesman that Congress is very serious about rooting out corruption.

Let’s see how serious you are

In Mumbai if you have to buy house anywhere from Colaba to Virar or Kalyan you have to pay 30% In black, which is equally divided among builder, underworld, politician and government official. Let’s calculate the amount involved.

In south Mumbai going price is Rs 60000 per square feet (sixty thousand per square feet) for 1500 square feet flat so it costs Rs 9 Crore. Out of which 3 crore is to be paid in black. Normal building is of thirty storeys with 6 flat on each floor, which works out to be 180 flats generating 180 x 3 = 540 Crore of black money.

So just one building in south Mumbai generates average black money worth 540 Crore. All over Mumbai crore and crore of black money is generated right under the nose of your own government, which you cannot prevent and you want to bring back black money from Swiss bank!! Your jokes are becoming cruel day by day!!!!

There is a case of Hasan Ali who has been charged for evading income tax of 70,000 Crore, first he was let off the hook by Enforcement Director. Due to pressure from Supreme Court he was arrested again. He has named three former chief minister, you have never bothered to find out who are they, nor you cared to punish them. Yet you say you are serious about black money! another cruel Joke!!!

Let’s take the case of your former chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh who was asked to pay fine of Rs 10 lakh for preventing police to perform his duty. What happened was as follow :-

His friend a money lender was charging 10% interest per month that is 120% per year from farmers. Police was asked not to register a complaint against him by Vilasrao Desmukh, but nevertheless police did his duty and as a punishment he was posted in Naxalite hit area where he can die PIECE-FULLY. As if this was not enough after that Maharashtra Government imposed the rule that no police station will enter information in police diary regarding politicians making calls to police station. In short no trace should be left so no punishment can ever be given to politician.

Mr. Vilasrao was fined Rs 50,000 by Nagpur high court. Your government filed petition against this ruling in supreme court which increased the fine to 10,00,000 (that is 10 Lakh). Your government made him cabinet minister for RURAL development!. So Mr. Prime Minster this is the way you want to punish your own ministers!!

Then there is Mr. Rane, an honorable minister from Maharastra, transferred the land of poorest of poor fisherman which was there only source of live hood to Industrial house. Bombay high court passed severe stricture against him. Even Mrs. Sonia Gandhi who was known for her honesty never took action against him when high court passed stricture against former chief minister. Is this is the way you and Mrs. Sonia Gandhi implements zero tolerance to corruption???

Just before three month I heard Mr. Ram Jethmalani on Times Now TV that Mr. Rahul Gandhi was caught with $2,00,000 at Boston Airport in USA (that is Rs 1 Crore) So far nobody in Congress has denied this. Even your Abhisek Singhvi who had threaten Italian author from publishing book ‘RED SARI’ for defamation of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi has kept quiet.

Another Interesting incident that happened is :-

Robert Vadra , son in law of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi has been given special privilege that he does not have to undergo security check at any of the Indian Airport, (till that day this privilege was given to one person only and that was his highness Dalai Lama) so that he does not have to suffer humiliation which Mr. Rahul Gandhi had to suffer.

Following article is going around on internet for long time, you can take a note of this.

This is the article which was published in Swiss Magazine Schweizer Illustiertein (November 1991) which shows the top holders of Swiss bank account at that time. It shows Rajiv Gandhi along with dictators like Saddam Hussein and it reads “Rajiv Gandhi, Indian, holds 2.5 Billion Swiss Francs “ (this is 13200 crores in 1991)

Mr. Prime minister it seems that your Congress PARTY revolves around Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, not because of her leadership quality of charisma, but the money bag that she is holding.

Mr. Prime Minister, look at thousands and thousands of people coming out on streets to protest against corruption. They are not FBI or KGB agents as you believe. Each one of them has suffered due to corruption. Corruption has destroyed our body, our mind and our soul. We just want to live without fear and with dignity, are we asking for too much?

As far as Lokpal bill is concerned, right from the day one intentions of ruling party were doubtful. First it was CD produced by Amar Singh maligning Prashant Bhusan, next your ministers tried to split movement by encouraging baba Ramdeo, then putting ridiculous condition to hold fast and last not but least the language used by your spoke man Manish Tiwari describing Anna Hazare as corrupt from toe to top. That is why people have lost faith in you and your leadership.

For one Gandhi there was nothing better than truth, for another one there is nothing bitter than truth.

Mr. Prime minster ONE Anna Hazare wants to sacrifice his life for 130 Crore people and on other side you the Prime minister of India wants to sacrifice life of 130 Crore people for ONE person.

Mr. Prime minister individually we are just a drop but collectively we are an ocean and no power on the earth can sink an ocean. We all are holding Candle against “S”candal and let’s see which power can extinguish it!

Investigation Is Going On.....

On July 13th 2011 the Island city was rocked by three blasts in the three crowded places namely Dadar, Opera house and Zaveri Bazaar,this was the third time for Zaveri Bazaar(1993,2003) now this explains Zaveri bazaar has a special place in the hearts of these so called terrorist groups.....

Ever wondered why only Mumbai!!!!!! basically even i dn't knw and i bet even our CM will find it tough to answer........ The important thing is that our Govrnment and Police says Investigation is Going On.... the very first statement to come after every blast....... and every one knows about our invesigation remember the 1993 blasts and it's results or we can say justice atleast that was the term that i heard !!!!!!! and it came nearly after 10 years......... it was really fast.!!!!!! No wonder why India and especially Mumbai is a Soft target, these Terrorists plan a holiday here as they know no-where else they can get such security and comforts even after a crime of such a high scale.... the latest example is that of Ajmal Kasab.... 

These Blasts were a rude shock to every mumbaikr and a Shame for Mumbai Govt who boasted of improved security,and also about those advanced weapons which were purchased after 26/11 blasts.. No one thought that such thing could happen after 26/11 which many said served asWake Up call for the government..... BUT  I think we need a bigger Wake Up call.....

Blasts after Blasts happened,
Investigation is Going On.....
Lives were shattered,
Investigation is Going On.....
These Blasts have ruined the happiness of the people,
Investigation is Going On.....
There is no proper system in place,
Investigation is Going On.....
Investigation is Going On.....
Investigation is Going On.....
