Screw the Spirit of Bombay!

For long have people slept, for long has this one sentence comforted us into our holes. 'The Spirit of Mumbai' is ignorance. It is loathed with 'calm down, it will be okay'. IT IS NOT OKAY! We have been beaten, bludgeoned, battered, bruised & yet we 'bounce back'. NO! Lets not bounce back. Get MAD! Get angry. Shout scream & cry. Weep Bombay. Weep for you are sleeping. Constantly saying that this is a bad dream & it shall pass by dawn. NO! It shall not. We slip deeper into the darkness & we stay silient.

This is a plea to everyone. Do not sit down. Do not let them take you into the night & kill you. Silence the ones who tell you that you cannot do anything. You can do EVERYTHING! Awake. Arise & feel again. Do not be insensitive. Do something about it. Join a movement. Take up a cause. DO NOT SUPPORT divisive politics. Condemn it. Refer to all terrorists as cowards. Do not glorify them. Glorify the heroes that have laid down their lives for yours. Here & at the border. Push the government to lay down firm policies & a federal terror law that NO ONE is above of. ACT NOW.

The Spirit of Mumbai does not it bounces back... the spirit of Mumbai wants to fight back & now is the time! Jai Hind!

Before I begin what some may call a very partisan & biased read, I would like to put you through an exercise. Nothing much, just a small & simple exercise, something that will be fun if you allow it. Here goes then. Simply spot the difference between these 2 pictures.

Now there will be those who will argue that one is human while one is a primate. Both look relatively peeved with something & both look like they could use a banana. Where the fruit is applicable is rather quite debatable. But for the other few who do not see any difference between the 2 whatsoever... congratulations.

Before you go up ahead & light those effigies bearing my image (how the hell do they get those so quickly? do they have a stock of them somewhere...I wonder) this post is not anti-hindu or anti- any religion. Nor is it as a call or a plea to help minorities that be burning off in the distance. Nor is it anti-monkey or any other sort of animal. This post is simply put - ANTI-FUNDAMENTALIST! Period.

The angry monkey you see above does not belong to a religion. His kind are found everywhere, set to stand up & fight for anything. Be it religion, caste, creed, colour of the skin, vegetable prices, unclipped toenails or bad breath. The 'Fundamental Fool', your typical unemployed 'nothing to lose' youngster transcends every boundary known to man. Religious or political.

These gems of society wail & wallow in self pity shouting out to the world that they have been wronged. They take to violence in order to claw back their rights. They are there because no one else bothers to take up such an issue. I reckon because everyone is out there with a job & a family to feed. But no, these guardians of 'our' rights & 'our' sentiments have to be out there restoring sanity to our world.

Every religion is plagued by this 'It hurts our sentiments' fundamentalist. Constantly trying to fight tooth & nail over a sordid issue that is frankly, worth less than a million buckets of human waste. Land, blasphemy, conversions, insults, the list is endless.

An appeal goes out to everyone with at least one ticking grey cell. PLEASE OPEN YOUR EYES. DO NOT CO-OPERATE. Refrain from acknowledging their propaganda let alone discussing it. These antics that they resort to, violence, murder, constant protest & the odd hunger strike is to distract you. Take you away from the real issues. Issues that them & their kind have no answers to. Answers that all of us need to ask...

Look Jesus! I'm saved!

"Down with Europe! Hey BTW, where are we?"
"Errrm... Europe."

"See Shoumak. I told you this would be better than any movie we could go for. Come on! You're missing out on the fun. Get stomping already!"

!!!! WAKE UP !!!!

Of Suicides & Statues

My great city will soon have something else to shout about. Something that will make it a little more popular among its peers. London, Paris, New York will all look in awe at a monument that will set my country back my Rs.500 Crore! What a matter of pride it will be. We will all stand tall, gawking at the mighty statue. A monument & a symbolof our prosperity, unity & peace. It will be a message to the world, that we too aren't far behind. The statue will encompass the true spirit of the city as it stands alone out there at sea. Facing wind, water & the future. It will carry with it, on its huge shoulders, all our hopes & prayers. All our wants will disappear & euphoria will embrace all who see it. This giant symbol of my city will be a sign to all weary travellers, the lost & the needy. It will welcome them with open arms, embracing them with a promise to pave their dreams with gold. There will be no more pain, there will be no more terror. Peace will forever reign. All thanks to this towering messiah of a monument. We will all be saved.

The truth is far from what I would like it to be. If wishes were horses then India & my city would ride like the wind. Ahead of everyone. In this nation of professional dreamers, the winners will always be the ones who sell us the BIG dreams. And who else can do this better than our chosen ones. Our elected saviours, the ones who have carefully & tediously studied every minute problem that you & I face as an individual, are busy as you read this. Concocting another intoxicating dose, made specially for your dreams. Thus, after many committees, meetings, tea, biscuits & some rather expensive international holidays...err...visits our city decides that a solution to all our problems would be to erect a giant statue far out into the sea. This will not only solve our problems of congestion, crime & resource crunches but will also propel us into the league of world class cities. What an achievement that would be! Viva La Mumbai!

I do not expect our blind parliament to open its eyes to our plight & hence I shall resist from addressing this message to them in any way. This message is intended to the intelligent human beings out there. The ones who go to work the day a bandh is called. The ones who sweat it out in crowded compartments, wade through knee deep sewage, spend 4 hours a day stuck in traffic, the ones who pay through their nose to get a square foot to lay their tired heads on...just to keep this city running. And yet, this statue will do them no good. Their hard earned cold hard cash, snatched away from them in the form of taxes will be spent on a cold hard monument left to rust far out at sea.

Our Politicians... on a really busy day.

But I'm sure our dictators feel& know differently. I'm sure that according to them (or their astrologers), this magical structure will yeild astronomical results. The statue is miraculously expected to stop farmers form Vidharba from committing suicide. Their crops might bloom & a bumper bonus too is expected. The Latur belt will never bear witness to earthquakes again. Inflation will drop to a meagre 3%. Salaries will increase. Roads will get better as corporators & corporations get less corrupt. Our trains will increase in size, or we might shrink, they will also arrive on time. All court cases will see the light of day the very same day the case has been registered. No innocent man will ever spend a night in jail again. Crime will be reduced by 300%. Women will walk the streets freely & without fear as all eve teasers will now suddenly grow a conscience thanks to the statue's ever watchful gaze. Property prices will be reasonable again, builders will start building towers closer to the statue, thus opening up a whole new world of housing solutions. Poverty will be reduced to almost nil & any & all migrants will be welcomed with smiles & garlands. And last but not the least, pigs will fly.

So if the Rs. 500 Crore (that's Rs. 500, 000, 000, 000) monument is totally worth it don't you think. Once we have achieved Utopia here, we should all support the Taj corridor which will reverse Global Warming as well. Jai Hind.

A**HOLE's Car. Yes I had enough adrenaline in me to limp right up to it & click a pic.

This baby's next on my list. Sweet sweet stuff this one :)

The truth behind Bruce Springsteen's 41 Shots (American Skin)

Bruce, known as the 'Boss' has a few rolling hits to his name. But the reason he's the boss in my book is simple, he's a revolutionary in every sense of the word. every word in his mighty verses stand tall & take note, making the world around them shiver in awe & in recognition. This is just one of his songs. It's called 41 Shots (41 Shots) & this is the history behind it.

What started this song off was an act of violence. Amadou Diallo, an american-african immigrant

in the US of A was shot by police officers who thought he was peddling drugs & was weilding a weapon which he was about to use. Now this could be a regular occurrence to many but this case was different. Diallo was shot 41 times... all for reaching out for his wallet. The police found no weapons on him. Justice... ? Makes you wonder...

Here's the boss.

41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots....
and we'll take that ride
'cross this bloody river
to the other side
41 shots... cut through the night
You're kneeling over his body in the vestibule
Praying for his life

Is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in
Your American skin

41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots and
Lena gets her son ready for school
She says "on these streets, Charles
You've got to understand the rules
If an officer stops you
Promise me you'll always be polite,
that you'll never ever run away
Promise Mama you'll keep your hands in sight"

Is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in
Your American skin

41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
(music bit)
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
41 shots
Is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it in your heart, is it in your eyes
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)

41 shots
And we'll take that ride
Cross this bloody river
To the other side
41 shots
And my boots caked in this mud
We're baptized in these waters
(baptized in these waters)
And in each other's blood
(And in each others blood)

Is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain't no secret
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
It ain't no secret
(It ain't no secret)
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in
Your American Skin

(41 shots)You can get killed just for living in
(41 shots)You can get killed just for living in
(41 shots)You can get killed just for living in
(41 shots)You can get killed just for living in
(41 shots)You can get killed just for living in

This one's for the crazy ones. :)

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Balloons, these dangerous weapons of mass destruction have been around since a million years. Evolving through time & now a perfect killing machine, the evil balloons have successfully disguised themselves as toys for kids. here we see an example of how one balloon, can lead to permanent brain damage.
Kids & Idiots. Please don't try this at home!

The victim suffered permanent brain damage. The alcohol company took no responsibility for this act of stupidity.

A Tribute to My Friends

Made this one as a tribute to the good times & the bad times that we've gone through. The highs, the breakdowns, both mental, physical & mechanical :P But whenever i needed them, i didn't even need to call out cause my friends were always there :)
Love you guys.

Here are the lyrics, they mean so much to me cause i'm sure all of us can relate to 'em. :)

Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare

This is where the rubber meets the road
This is where the cream is gonna rise
This is what you really didn't know
This is where the truth don't lie

You find out who your friends are
Somebody's gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think 'what's in it for me?' or 'it's way too far'
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who your friends are

Everybody wants to slap your back
wants to shake your hand
when you're up on top of that mountain
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
and see who's around then

This ain't where the road comes to an end
This ain't where the bandwagon stops
This is just one of those times when
A lot of folks jump off


When the water's high
When the weather's not so fair
When the well runs dry
Who's gonna be there?


You find out who your friends are
(yeah, yeah)
You find out who your friends are

Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
(Well man, I've been there)
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare
(Man, I've been there)

Man, I've been there
Oooh yeah.

Song of the Weak - Heaven on their minds

Here's something that just re-enforced my belief that people are way to blind to see what Jesus truly lived & died for. This is the part that Judas sings at the start of the film. He's a little ticked off with the Big J cause things are taking a massive turn & he knows that things are gonna get hot under the collar. With lyrics like "You've begun to matter more than what you say." make you wonder about religion & if fighting over it is really what God had planned for all of us. Tolerance was Jesus' biggest lesson & that is what we have failed to learn in the first place. Anyways, hope u delve into this movie a little more cause the philosophy it revolves around can really change the way you see things.

Rock on... Sod off...

Song of the 'Weak' - Blind Melon - Change

starting today, will be putting up a song each week which has at some point in my life helped me get through a lot. hope u guys like 'em.

This week it's Change by Blind Melon. The lyrics speak for themselves. This one goes out to all those who have been laughed at for being different, for trying something new. It isn't angry & neither does it preach. All it says is... wait. They'll see the light... they'll see that what you are now... is the change they will go through & accept in the future. :)
Sod off.... Rock on...

Another Urban Legend - Australian Monkeys!!!

Here's something that the guys at C2w (the place where i work :P)came up with following the Aussie-India cricket controversy. Hilarious!
Sure there are no monkeys in Australia, but a few people do behave like 'em. :P
