Time to grow up

60 years!



It's a long time. Most would say we qualify for Senior citizenship. I'd say we qualify for senility.



It's time these stupid fu***** politicians took some responsibility for taking the nation forward. Somehow most of their actions are retrograde.



All of them saw the 123 deal as it developed. We need that nuclear kniwhow. India has and will remain a sovereign nation. This deal will not impinge that status. However, playing dirty politics and blackmailing progress has become the forte of the Left parties. They're playing into the hands of the Chinks and the Pakis. In political parlance, I'd call them fifth columnists.



We're living in a world where international agreements are to be respected. We've known all along that the nuke deal was happening. Why throw a hue and cry at this juncture, when a renege means we only lose - face, prestige, the future.



Someone needs to give these pseudo communists a whack across their skinny lil heads. We've enough on our plates and then they'd want to have mid-term polls given the fact that there's no real alternative to the UPA and BJP at this point in time.



I do believe we need to re-look at the areas of amendment in the deal rather than scuttle it for petty politics. I'm glad that the PM is taking a strong stand.



And btw, I'm not someone who loves the congress party - just an Indian.

Why do you love the congress party? It's not as though they have the perfect record. Besides who says you can't renege on an international agreement (not that I support doing it).. Many countries have done that before and as you know the world has a short memory and they are soon forgiven.

The Communists are only doing this for two reasons:
1) Cuz they want to hog the media attention and limelight currently.
2) Cuz when they will suddenly agree one fine day, make the nation sit back with a sigh of relief and at as they have been the big man in letting the Govt. go ahead with a deal which is beneficial to India

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
