Saw something called ‘Humanity’

Yes i know many people must be thinking this word called ‘Humanity’ is nothing new and why the hell am i writing about it. Well yesterday i just experienced what Humanity is exactly like. I myself agree that being human we don’t act like one. Well it’s not our fault at all it’s something called ‘Materialistic Pleasure’ is what has to be blamed.

Yesterday my granny’s old fridge had some problem with it’s compressor. I am not an electrician so i don’t know what the problem exactly was but yes i knew there was some problem with the compressor as the freezer was not accumulating any ice. My granny is in love with her 35years old godrej fridge and so she gets very tensed whenever she sees something wrong with her fridge she takes the makes the whole world upside down. But that’s not the case. Well she called me quickly from down where i was playing football to call up this electrician called ‘Joseph’. She said that this guy was trust worthy and knows her fridge like a family doctor knows his/her patient. I saw the watch and told her that it was 9pm and that no one would come so late. But she insisted me to at least try at once. So i did i went to his place as his cell was switched off i met him and called him. Poor guy was busy with his friend joking and fooling around after a long day work. I asked him politely to please come and fix up the fridge as there was food inside the fridge which would get spoilt. It was chicken after all i had to save it, I love chicken, jokes apart. So he came after half an hour saw the fridge saw the compressor and within 5 minutes he fixed it like it was before. My granny went and opened her purse to pay the guy. He saw my nani and said no need to pay ma’am. I was shocked listening to this he almost takes 50rs per visit and that too in the night around 9pm, i know it’s not that late but after a long day coming and resting, chilling around with friends and then suddenly going for another visit. I thought he might charge at least 100rs because it was not his working hour at that time. He said No need to pay me ma’am and just left. My granny told me see this is called ‘Humanity’.

I know friends this is not a great deal i mean you must be thinking how am i relating this to humanity. But to tell you a fact is humanity doesn’t mean you have serve humanity at a large scale, it starts from bits and pieces, adjoining them will make a bigger and a better world. This story is one of the bits and pieces of humanity

FIFA Country Specific

Sorry, There was a huge time gap of me writing anything on My Blog, well it’s not because of me not getting any issue to write on it’s just because I was busy with the exams.

Well coming back to the issue. I am a huge soccer fan and love to play soccer almost whenever I get time. The other day I was playing soccer with my good friend who plays soccer at a national level in India. A superb player with stamina, skills, and everything what is needed in a good footballer. I know him personally and I know a little bit more about football so I can judge his capabilities. Played for prestigious clubs of India and also currently pursuing his football career in one of the most prestigious football coaching institutions in India. Well leaving everything apart this individual played in South Africa against some greatest clubs juniour squad. As I told you about his skill and everything one of the managers from this junior’s team came up to the guy and told him “son you are good in football keep it up”. And I am not talking about manager of anyother team but a manager of a well reputed team from europe. It is natural and is anyone’s dream to playfootballin Europe so he genrally asked the manager knowing his qualities that is there a chance for him to play in his team. The beat part comes now the answer was “We don’t take Asians”.

I mean after listening to this I was shocked there is still so much discrimination happening on the basis of caste, color, creed, and that too in a game like football. FIFA what is it that you want to prove are we Asians not good at our sport? I am sure FIFA must be knowing about something of this sort happening. That is why you don’t see any Indian not playing or getting selected in a European team to play any league. FIFA should not be world oriented and should be more country specific if this thing happens under the eye of a governing body like FIFA. What is it that FIFA or other instituions are trying to prove or potray is it that we Asians or Indians do not have the talent, skill. Why is FIFA called the federation of international football assosiciation? When it itself does not associate other countries?

IPL Total Indian Madness

Well we all by now know that IPL is the new greatest Indian Madness. The best part is we all know about the madness what happens on T.V. Sachin hitting six, Gilchrist hitting six, Bowlers taking 4 wickets in a row, It’s totally crazy on T.V. But the fun part is when you actually go on the stadium and watch the entire match with the crowd going crazy. Yes that’s what i did for a match against Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians in D.Y Patil stadium in Nerul. I was working as a volunteer at the stadium but as a volunteer i did not have much work so what i did was i watched the whole match with the crowd jumping, singing, dancing, roaring,fighting …well in small words actually going crazy behind this beautiful game called cricket. I was at the back seat and it was absolute fun. I mean i cannot describe words to actually describe the feeling and the intensity i should say. For that i request all of my friends to actually go and see the match in the stadium and feel cricket not just see it. On T.V. trust me guys the fun and excitement is nothing, nothing compared to the stadium madness, and all thanks to IPL that it got madness in us(Indians). I am proud to say that IPL is the new Total Indian Madness.

Made in India

I was just seeing the beautiful captain’s arm bands, the shorts, jerseys of various sport. I usually have a habit of looking where the commodity is made from, because the prices of these brands are huge. But the best part comes not all these commodity are not made from China ad not Indonesia or Pakistan these commodity are made in India, could you believe it i mean the commodity which is made in India for like 200 or something and these commodities are sold to Indian only for like 1000 I.N.R or something. I mean we make the commodities for various brands and then we only have to pay higher price for these commodities. It’s like using our cotton, thread, and various other raw materials and charging us extra. What i mean is simple open a shop or something where we can buy these commodities as in whatever is made in India at a slightly higher price than the price what we get in a proper outlet or a retail shop. I am not saying do not make any profit or anything, without profit business is nothing but at least don’t keep your prices of such commodities so high that we end up saving nothing.

What are we exactly SAVING!!!

Recent campaigns of Save water and Save tigers, Save trees is very much applicable and a superb initiative taken by all the various corporate houses. But what irks me is if these guys are taking an initiative be it business minded or whatever we as a responsible citizen of nature not even city, country i am talking about nature cannot take an initiative. Let me explain you, i went to the temple today i saw huge chunk of crowd with 1litre of milk in their hand each and dozens of food. And you know for what to offer ‘the almighty’. Obviously they have their reason’s but what my point is if you are putting so much of milk on statues and then draining it to the waste. I mean it’s simple why can’ you just put half a glass of milk if you have promised something to God that is. Why are you wasting so much of milk. There are many people who are dying of starvation. I know for the fact that at least God does not want people to die of starvation. Forget that talking about the fruits and sweets, etc good that you are offering to God all this but to be practical is God really eating those fruits is he really peeling off the banana and eating the answer is ‘NO’ then why do you guys get the fruits in the temple and just keep it near God’s feet let it rotten and then the temple administration throws it in the garbage. Is there no shortage of Food in this country? Are people not Hungry? Are people not dying of hunger? Are people not getting their daily nutrition for their survival? I am sure God doesn’t want this too. Also this and the whole Government campaign of Save Water are they taking it seriously.  In temples there are taps from which people fill in glasses, ‘LOTTA’ is what we call it in India i mean 1 of these Lotta is approximately more than half a glass but imagine if around 100 people visit a temple everyday how many water is wasted in a day. This water is been offered to God by just spilling the water on God’s statue’s and again the water goes in the drain. What is it? Are we not aware that there is shortage of water in Mumbai i am not talking about India. Places in Mumbai still face shortage of water. India i don’t want to think about it because there are solid serious problems there.

Come on guys open your eyes at least now. I am not saying offering to God is bad or do not offer. If you have promised something please fulfill it but instead of promising 1litre of milk you can promise 1 glass of milk or half a glass of milk, instead of putting the whole ‘lotta’ of water you can offer small glass of water around 200ml. Instead of offering fruits and sweets and etc you can just keep in front of God for 2mins or so and then again take back and give it to the beggars or your family members etc. Is Saving Money only everything in life? Just think about it and ask this question to yourself What are we exactly Saving?

Note :- This incident i am talking about a temple near my area, imagine if you take whole of Mumbai and India how much of it is wasted!!!
