The Misuse

                    The agenda of women empowerment and equality , believe it or not, is the most heated up issue(at least in the GD of company's recruitment process....I have several experiences of that....no offence though). It must be raised though prior to any subject as it is a proven fact that how men have had suppressed women in the society. Awareness has had been raised to a certain limit and this is observed as the women of our generation are nowhere lagging behind men of the same era. But as a monologue comes to my mind from a very famous movie that with great powers come great responsibilities , I certainly want to rectify it as great decisions come along with both pros and cons, boon and curse.
              So, here I am, Mrs. Achhi Devi, to tell you an incident , in a quibble and comic way but with great diligence and a profound message.
              As it happened last night , while returning home after a hectic day at my office, I found that there was no mini or micro cab available and being a middle class lady I didn't go for sedan/prime option . You know the protocol of the stereotype doesn't allow me to do so. As the "Chola cab Co." has also given a facility of cab sharing , so I thought ," Better if I take a share cab as it will save me some money". And mind you if you think of myself as a miser. I am not a miser , I am just kanjoos. The details of the driver was now visible on my unsmartphone. It displayed
Driver name: Mr. Seedha Ram
Contact no. : 9696969696
Vehicle info.: Nimbu colour
                       Massan BC_R model
                       NOT - 0420.
I was waiting for the cab and meanwhile was having a chit-chat with my company's gate keeper, Mr. Aalsi Kumar, who was usually very polite but can turn boorish if anybody dares to wake him up as he is very lethargic too. He can sleep for hours if he is not disturbed. When my cab arrived , I saw a girl of age not more than 25, sitting inside the cab . After telling the driver my drop location, I introduced myself to that young lady sitting beside me. "Miss Badmash Rani" as she told me her name was.
                    After few minutes when we started our journey, Miss Badmash Rani asked the driver, " Which route are you taking us through?". "This route is secluded and is not safe for us", she added looking to me. I told her," Look beti, the other route is very congested and it will take us about an hour more to reach our destination." "Also",I added,"that we are two ladies and in case something happens I am there and I will call the Police". But she didn't agree. Instead, when the driver tried to explain her, she started shouting, "Stop the car , Stop the caaaar ". Mr. Seedha Ram, out of fear, stopped the car then and there . She got out of the car and asked the driver also to come out."What do you think of yourself? You moron, you tried to get physical with me". And I thought physical, but when did that happen. Oh my God, she was creating trouble for that poor guy. Meanwhile, Mr. Seedha Ram was insisting,"What? What are you saying mam? ". He added, "Mam, Do you have any idea? I have a wife and two daughters. Can you please stop saying those things". Before I could have come out of the car and had explained that young lady , she shouted like anything and all the passer-by came closer to the driver and by hearing the lady shouting and crying they assumed that the driver was at fault . Without wasting any time they all started beating that poor guy whose only fault was to take another lane. I was trying to save the man. But as it seems , it is impossible to handle mob specially in our country and that too for cases like these. After putting lot of efforts, I somehow managed to get Mr. Seedha Ram out of that chaos. Till then Miss Badmash Rani had already informed to the police. 
                     Now, whenever there is an actual crime scene occuring, our policemen never turn up on time, but since there wasn't any ACTUAL crime happening here, they arrived too early. The Inspector got down from his jeep and his name was Mr. Samjhdar Hawaldar(Hawaldar was rhyming with Samjhdar and above all this is my story......I am allowed to do so....so don't judge me....sorry....zyada ho gya....hehe). He asked the young girl about the whole drama( or else I could quote melodrama). After listening to the girl he arrested Mr. Seedha Ram and told Miss Badmash Rani and me to come with him to the police station as we were the witnesses. I joined them as I had to tell Mr. Samjhdar that Mr. Seedha was innocent and he had done nothing. When we arrived at police station, Mr. Samjhdar in complete animosity took Mr. Seedha inside the locker for interrogation. Well in our system a man is convicted guilty by society much before the law does it. Miss Badmash Rani told everything totally against that seedha( innocent) man and after she was done with her fictional story, she was told to sit down at a corner. Now it was my turn to describe the so called crime scene( well they call it mauka-e-wardat....it sounds beautiful in urdu). By the time I delineated the complete scene to one of the constables, we all heard the sound of a policeman shouting inside the locker. It was Mr. Samjhdar's voice. He was yelling at Mr. Seedha Ram. Suddenly we heard the sound of his stick banging at someone and obviously it would have been Mr. Seedha Ram who was brutally treated by the Inspector and he was shouting in pain. I was not terrified that Mr. Seedha was treated that way but I was worried as he was being thrashed when he was guilt-free. After Miss Badmash heard Mr. Seedha shouting she was at relief and she told the constable that she wanted to leave as her parents would be worried. She left with a cunning smile on her face although I still wonder why was she smiling while looking at me. Anyways after she left I ran towards the locker to stop Mr. Samjhdar and to tell him the complete story. To my surprise he wasn't beating Mr. Seedha but was banging his stick against the wall and Mr. Seedha was just shouting at each stroke so that they could just baffle Miss Badmash. Well I really appreciate the work of Mr. Samjhdar as he was clever enough to know who was the culprit in reality.
                             So, the moral of the story is that......well you can find it on your own......I think you guys are smart enough....or else.....you wouldn't have read this.

Kuch khwaab adhure reh gye h

Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Nhi khabar thi ki jis ghar k  chiraag the hm
Wahan k ab bas mehmaan bn kr reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Jis jagah pr budh aur mahavir janame the
Wahan pr ab bs lootere reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Jahan hoti thi vishv ki sabse aadhunik padhai
Wahan ab bas khandhar reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Jis Patliputra ke sushashan k liye ashoka tha
Wahan ab dushashan failane k liye log reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Yahan aaj bhi jaati paati par ladte h log
Pata nhi wo gyaani kahan reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Maana ki kuch galti humaari bhi h
Ki achhe netaon ko chunne mein peeche hm bahut reh gye h
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Aur Jis mitti mein bachpan khel k beetaya tha
Uss mitti me mil jaane ko ab bas mere armaan hi reh gye h......
Kuch khwaab adhure se
Pure karne ko reh gye h

Lying dead in my bed....

Lying dead in my bed
I find no strain
and no pain...

In a far distant corner
I can hear my mother's sob
My dad in silence
And rest all mob

Everyone was crying
Everyone had tear
But I can't find the one
Who was so close and dear

To see her
I was excited
But forgot that
It was a love unrequited

Soon I woke up
And found myself dreaming
I procrastinated
And felt no feeling

Realising the fact
That she won't cry for me
I made up my mind
That not for her
But I'll die for me......

DEMOCRACY or DEMONOCRACY: The Indian Judicial System

To change this 'demonocracy' to "democracy" we all must join hands and demand for such a democracy that is not rotting and rusting
                                   -Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri.

       
The judiciary in our country If  I may quote in a single word is Pathetic. Democracy with respect to judiciary is only on pen and paper. It's substantial requirements and it's implementations are contradictory to each other. Reality of our country's judiciary system is not democracy but 'demonocracy'. What is this 'demonocracy'?
Let's take a small example to understand this word. Our country is not ruled by Republican political leaders but instead its run by evasive and corrupt political leaders. This is how this 'democracy' is changed to 'demonocracy'.

I am not just juggling the balls in air. The real examples prove this. We can see almost about 40% of our parliamentarians are having a criminal record and among them about 10-20% have a very serious charge imposed on them including dacoity, murder and rape. All these are because the judiciary system existing in our country is primarily dysfunctional.

The pace with which we are provided the so called justice i.e it may take 10 to 15 or even more years of duration for a simple case to be resolved , in my own terms I can say it is not justice delayed= justice denied but is justice delayed= justice denied= criminalisation of society. The very best example of this was the execution of Ajmal Kasab, the decision which took about an era to come out.

Having said so I am not inferring that this judiciary cannot be changed from 'demonocracy' to 'democracy'. The recent decisions of the judiciary system over Nirbhaya rape case and many such incidents are worth admiring and are creditable.

This article of mine is a quibble and by this i am not inferring a wrong message about our judiciary but i am helping our society to figure out some notions to help make our judiciary better. The killing of witnesses , the slow  pace of judgement, the trial imposed on superstars and political leaders getting dusted on the judge's desk over the years, need of more trial rooms and courts for the grass root level implementation  ....all these should be taken under consideration so that our country's judiciary is improved by a large.

Engineering : Plan B for many students

It was the 2nd semester of my engineering when i came to know my classmate Shubham and his group usually named as air force group by me as all of them were from air force family. I must admit that Shubham has an exceptional talent in singing. I wondered what was he doing there in engg . Later on i found that he was a bit shy . So i assumed that he might not have told or insisted his parents about his dream .
                    After few days of the semester while we were having our lunch , Gautam , one of his friends was telling that he wanted to become an actor and he is studying engg for the sake of degree. I was taken aback . I just looked myself and thought that I also wanted to become an author but I couldn't because I didn't have that much of courage to say this to my mother . Then I surveyed, on net, google , asked my relatives ,friends and many more. To my surprise I got to know that around 80% of the engg students are studying engg only for the sake of degree or either they are forced to study engg due to various reasons .
                                   One of my teachers told me " Many of the students studying here are not fit for engg or either I could say you that engg is not suitable for them". Around 6 out of 10 students are opting engg after their +2 level . This shows the packed and orthodox thinking of people in India . To my surprise there were no such statistics in USA or London. Well as per my perception the reason could be the broad thinking of the residents their. I was surprised to see that in India most engineers die or commit suicide because they think that they are forced to swim across a pool named engineering.
                               As per my thinking parents and teachers are also faulty for this as they don't see the talent of their wards and encourage them to pursue such goals for which they are meant to be. They should find what is best suited for their child and not what they think is best for their child.
                                    The orthodoxy behavior of our society is becoming a barrier against success of the country. If the parents are thinking that everyone in the family was engg or dr and my child should also do those same stuff then they should think and survey that there are other options as well in which we have a lots of scope and their child could create wonders in those field if they are set free to achieve their goals without any pressure.
