Dubai - Pakistan & India. India should fund social projects in Pakistan.

This thought is of mine is not a very positive things but then truth if it seems to be then lets face it. After all many of reader will like it as well as not most of the human actions & thoughts are positive for fellow mens and society in general. Few days back I had read an article about how Keynes[father of modern economic] had predicted long back that working hours will keep reducing and reducing over time and at this time[21st century beginning] it should have been about 30 hours per week in Europe. He had put his arguments based on GDP growth and positive human ingenuity thinking and behavior. While the assumptions he had made to come to the conclusions seems to have been correct and achieved end result hasn't been achieved. I guess that negative thoughts and behaviors of human wasn't taken into account while making the forecast by Keynes.

Anyways this piece of blog is about living in peace and harmony and letting entrepreneurial instincts take over. Things that make the society better place to live over time. But all thing comes in pair so when we talk of these stuffs how can terrorism and associated stuff and under world be not discussed which are detrimental to society and bizes. Peace vs Terrorism & Entrepreneurship vs Under world.

India in year 2009 hasn't seen major terrorist activities. I hope remaining 20 days December will pass peacefully, if that doesn't happen it means my thoughts mentioned below are not correct. Let me tell you why??? Pakistan has been too pre-occupied with its own internal problems. They have been trying to deal with friend turned foes internally. As both friends are not able to come together to strike at the common beacon shining across Indians are thriving and turning around the dark 2008 into bright 2009 and 2010. I wont term India as their common enemy as India has remained focussed on mending it's own things instead of bombing what makes it [Infra]structure break and what makes it citizens/guests cry in pain. Forces on the other side think India as enemy as they cant shine like how their neighbor is of whom they think of one like them. So they cant see India moving away from the pack and start to shine bright. In fact to some extent even Chinese state has this mentality. they have prospered but still don't like to see their neighbor prospering. But I guess Chinese people are a fine lot and don't subscribe to such negative thoughts. But then China is not a democracy so Chinese state thought will take time to change when a new generation of leaders come in and current generation becomes too old to run the country.
Associated with these are D-world. With Dubai having been shaken[Dubai world debt fiasco] and Pakistan under fire from with in they as well are in dis-array. Newspaper articles shows that they have crossed their peak and are waning. After all the bis bosses had to start participating in O&T activities instead of heading the strategic units and M&A division.

Now let me put some data to support what I am telling. India had seen following cities under attack in 2008.
Mumbai - November
Guwhati - October
Dellhi - September
Ahmedabad - July
Jaipur - May
Even one towards end of 2007 in August in Hyderabad. Of course 2007 and before Indian society and bizes had done pretty well and Indian leaders were being magnanimous in accommodating Pakistan. So this had resulted in some prosperity. This lead to wealth creation and then of course funding the activities that we all saw manifesting itself as the terror on Indian in 2008.

So it makes sense for Indian bizes and society to keep diverting a part of money to keep Islamabad occupied in it's own soil and other places like Afghanistan. Keep funding humanitarian and other project for public interests and these negative forces will remain engaged and destroying them. They will let India succeed as they cant see Afghanistan rising at any costs. In their psyche they may have accepted India as something which is set to go up and would have given up on running after it even they have something more simple to bring down. On the same lines I guess like US India should start funding some projects of public interests in Pakistan as well.

Can new government take India to what this lady observed

New governement is place, Financial world specifically stock market is rejoicing. I have an expectation on social front after reading the article below. Can Indian home minister take this an aspiriration and target for the Indian society.

Incident as observed by the lady :-

One day I went to see doctor with my younger son to my nearest clinic. Once I entered to the clinic a lady with no English tongue but she was trying to talk with my son. Old ladies generally love to talk n play with young kids. 

All of sudden I saw few Singapore police officer entered into the clinic and they were enquiring about that lady. I was waiting there for my turn to see the doc. So I had time to listen their conversation carefully. The old lady could not speak English so one of the clinic attendants at the counter was explaining about her case to the Police.

That lady was holding a piece of paper and few sentences were written on that paper. Definitely I could not read her letter but I heard from the attendant of the clinic.

Attendant explained to the police officer that old lady had a minor an accident by a SBS transit bus (that lady had mentioned bus no also in her letter) so her leg was injured. I could not see the extent of that injury but I could see the bandage on her leg and she could walk also. So doctor were advising him to go to hospital and take an x-ray in order to check in detail but that lady was not willing to go to hospital because of financial reason.

Police, nurse and doctor started discussing her problem that how to help her. Finally they decide to take to the hospital but at whose cost? One of the senior police officer advise that they will give a memo written to hospital explain about her case and request hospital management  to see her without any fee for time being and police will claim all the charges to bus company and they will debit to the hospital account. Next problem was who will take her to the hospital? Police officer said they will take her to the hospital.

One more conversation I saw there between police officer and doctor. Doctor were complaining about police service as doctor had called them on 999 but no body came to his hospital within an hour or more. Since they knew nearest police station no so they call them directly. In addition doctor said why you police dept announce everywhere to call 999 for any help if you can not provide that service. Police was quite and apologized to the doctor.

I was surprised to see this case. Police at Singapore is so kind and helpful to the public. I can not imagine it if it can ever be so in my country.

Praise for Indian Election Machinery and past glory

This article from a NY journalist praises Indian elections and the challenges it poses. Of course it's a great feat and is well deserved. How ever down the line like every other one of us delves into past for search of more motivation. I hope that 10 years down the line some one writing such an article wont have to go into past of Indian greatness. He will get 90% of the contents from the late 20th and in force 21st century. Thanks to a friend who sent the article to me on mail.

Though I would say thanks primarily to EC and T. N. Seshan which gave the body self respect to stand against the politician/political parties and play an important role in Indian polity.

Article follows :--

It is truly the greatest show on Earth, an ode to a diverse and democratic ethos, where 700 million + of humanity vote, providing their small part in directing their ancient civilization into the future. It is no less impressive when done in a neighborhood which includes de-stabilizing and violent Pakistan , China , and Burma. Its challenges are immense, more so probably than anywhere else, particularly in development and fending off terrorism -- but considering these challenges and its neighbors, it is even more astounding that the most diverse nation on Earth, with hundreds of languages, all religions and cultures, is not only surviving, but thriving. The nation where Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism were born, which is the second largest Muslim nation on Earth; where Christianity has existed for 2000 years; where the oldest Jewish synagogues and Jewish communities have resided since the Romans burnt their 2nd temple; where the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile reside; where the Zorastrians from Persia have thrived since being thrown out of their ancient homeland; where Armenians and Syrians and many others have to come live; where the Paris-based OECD said was the largest economy on Earth 1500 of the last 2000 years, including the 2nd largest only 200 years ago; where 3 Muslim Presidents have been elected, where a Sikh is Prime Minister and the head of the ruling party a Catholic Italian woman, where the President is also a women, succeeding a Muslim President who as a rocket scientist was a hero in the nation; where a booming economy is lifting 40 million out of poverty each year and is expected to have the majority of its population in the middle class, already equal to the entire US population, by 2025; where its optimism and vibrancy is manifested in its movies, arts, economic growth, and voting, despite all the incredible challenges and hardships; where all the great powers are vying for influence, as it itself finds its place in the world. Where all of this is happening, is India , and as greater than 1/10 of
humanity gets ready to vote, it is an inspiration to all the World.

Queue for getting capital punishment

We all know India is soon going to take over China as most populous country. Though India stands far behind when it comes to top countries in terms of land area.......So there is natually queue for every product or services that the republic can provide to its citizen or even foreigner. Justice and punishment being one amongst those !!!

Now the funny part. Top Indian political leader [assumed to be future prime minister] says that there is queue in India for even getting hanged :))

Quote/Unquote from a address at  a rally at Mohali in Punjab :-
"There is a huge line and there are others before him. When his number (turn) comes, he will be hanged.
Democracy makes power hungry people do and say crazy things :))

Life is the impurity sorrounded by purity all around

I was off the office early today and so here to pen down this thought which was going on with in me for so many days/months. This post is really going to gel with the title of this blog site which seems to be related to cosmos and universe and basic nature of all the PURITY called life[IMPURITY] can see, feel and hear and interact with in what ever possible way. This may also wound bizzare to many as every new thing to start with is though of.

Let's think of it. When we refer to as "WE", "I", "OUR", "YOU", "YOUR", "THEIR", etc -- this is when we refer to something non tangible and so we loose the same as well with time. When is it lost when a living thing becomes dead. Mostly spiritual teachings of all forms in almost all part of world refer to it the SOUL/only pure thing and this is what all living thing associate them selves to. I call this IMPURITY and every thing else as PURITY. Even any interaction between IMPURITY is not possible without touching the PURITY, what is EXCHANGED between IMPURITY as well is PURITY. I will unravel this complexity down the line in post but this is the truth and IMPURITIES have to accept this PURITY of nature that they have been trying to make IMPURE. After thinking about it for so many days/months and finally able to write it down I feel what I am arguing is correct way of looking at things. To understand this I have to explain it with some standard facts which will need very basic understanding of physics. 

It's well know fact/law that ENERGY and MASS are one and same and interchangeable. Mass is what everything around us is. MASS and ENERGY combined is what we see, what we feel, what we hear, what we cant see, what we cant hear, what we cant feel. Everything all around is encompassed with and are these two forms of PURITY. Nothing escapes this except one thing which is the IMPURITY among all these PURITY which has a  expression in nature either in form of MASS or ENERGY or a combination of these forms of PURITY. PURITY cant be destroyed and can only be either changed into ENERGY or back into MASS. They are PURE. What goes missing at times unable to do away anything to the PURITY is the IMPURITY is what makes something lively or widely known as SOUL. Now if this is sounding complex and untrue, you are welcome to show as comment one example where you observe a violation and I will be able to correct you as to where you have gone wrong in your analysis.

While what I have mentioned above is the only truth but what ever else I am mentioning down may or may not be truth. These are only my hypothesis :-
[1] IMPURITY always tries to keep itself unchanged or maintain it's state. Though this may not be possible and it will be thrown out of the PURITY soup at some point in time. In other words in past there was no life[IMPURITY] in entire universe in past and in future as well there will be no life[IMPURITY].
[2] IMPURITY finds PURITY fascinating and tries to create more IMPURITY but this is myth. IMPURITY is not able to sustain myriad possibilities and ways PURITY is able to express it self.
