Her Heartless Parents

On the way back from native to home.. got to take this pic..

Location: At a complex, Opposite Electronic City.

Dont understand how to start after looking at this poor little kid..

Hubby went to the hotel just beside this shop, to get some breakfast. Meanwhile, I was trying to take this kid’s pic from the taxi. Looking at me paying attention to her.. she tilted her head and with a broad unnatural smile, stretching her hands with the so called “food bowl” in her hand.. said.. “pleeeasee..”.

My heart melted for a moment..

I was surprised!!! Her parents/elders not only trained her to beg, but also how to impress (sorry, I don’t have the right word) potential money givers..

What might be her age??? 3 yrs??? or max 4 years???  and doing this work???  Just look at the innocence on her face!

Since I was sure that her guardians will have kept an eye on her, I didnt bother to give her anything…

How can those idiots think of making a living by putting this helpless girl to such begging work???

A man behind her on green shirt (in pic), looking at me taking the snap of her, was telling her to approach me for money.. I could only give an angry look at him and raise the window glass.

The bag around, books in it, along with her would look so cute.. but the bowl has spoilt her future.. 

During all this, I was only glad that hubby had’nt noticed her.. hez basically very emotional and this scene would had spoilt his day.. I wish he doesnt see this post too.. 🙂

I was on AIR!!!

M back here after a year.. u can see my previous post… 😉

Was supposed to leave to in-laws-place on 26th June for few days. Hubby already there waiting for me. Took an out pass from work place around 3.00 pm. Info over phone given was wrong.. was said bus starts at 8.30 pm, but it was 9.30 pm. By the time we (me and my sis) reached Anand rao circle to board the bus, we realized that the bus wud be starting at 9.30 pm. We were ther by 7.30 pm after having dinner in a restaurant nearby. After this, she moved on to her PG and me to the bus boarding point during which i was too tired. 2 long hours to go.. how will it pass???
Took out the ear phones and tuned in to one of my fav radio stations. That week was a indi-pop special. They wud play the requested song. Not expecting my request to be played, around 8.00 pm I messaged them asking for “Deewana tera” by Sonu Nigam. Lovely song it is. I used to envy the gal in that album.
Got a call from the MJ and I was surprised!!!!! After the usual talks I was put on AIR and ppl cud listen me talking to her!!! Gaana shuru and i was very glad that my requested song was played.
When listening to this particular song, I got back to my college days.
After this, thakaan gayab!!!! 🙂 I was like… fressshhhh.. 🙂

For those who wish to see that album.. here it goes.. enjoy!!! 🙂

And yes, the following video too happens to be my fav… 🙂

This happens to be my recent fav ad..

Guy not that good looking but has an attitude which is appreciated..
“I’m the man…”, goes the lyrics with great music..
Hubby goes crazy when it appears on TV and I play this ad loud… 🙂 , cant help..

Here I am…

Watched Golmaal Returns sometime back and I felt that it was worth. Not only that movie but something MORE than that.  Ek teer do nishan you can say. Paisa Vasool…  🙂 . After some ads on the screen, it was this surprising clip (never even thought that this would be played) and then the movie. I don’t know if this clip is played in all the theaters/multiplexes (coz I rarely visit one), but this was played in the multiplex at my place. From the time the doors opened for the matinee show, till the said clip started, the environment was no way less than a fish/vegetable market. I was feeling like, “god…. where have I come???”

Then this sentence was flashed on the screen. ‘Please stand up to pay a tribute to the Indian Army’, not an exact phrase but meant something like this. Now I request you all to stand up and read. I am sure nearly half the population there din know to read English there, but everyone stood up at that moment. Pin drop silence. The clip started showing the MEN at the border, at various locations, in extreme climatic conditions, holding our National Flag proudly. Frankly speaking I wished I too were there holding our Flag. Such an emotional moment it was. To add to this the patriotic music was melting my heart. Eyes brimmed with tears. Got too emotional. Now this is too much, as I am writing this, the same problem.. tears… Even during school days when I participated in programs on Independence Day/ Republic day, and any patriotic song would be played, I would not show my face to anyone…. What to do, moistened eyes. Thought “friends will laugh at me”. Me emotional, hubby toh double emotional. Be it such scenes or the movie which has even little rona, he never even thinks of watching it. Well after this movie, couldn’t show my face to my sis too who was beside me then. Dad though not interested when asked for the movie came with us and was too satisfied looking at what our REAL HEROES do. After all he too has seen life of them when he served sometime for the Indian Army during his NCC days.

Oh yes… by the way… you people can take your seats  😀

I came across this forwarded message, and then.. my school frnds passed by my mind.. I dedicate these beautiful words n moments I shared with my Classmates ..  who seem to be too busy in their life 🙂 . Guys do have a look at the end of this post to have a glimpse of our blessed place..

When the school reopened in June,

And we settled in our new desks and benches!

When we queued up in book depot,
And got our new books and notes!

 

When we wanted two Sundays and no Mondays, yet
managed to line up daily for the morning prayers.
We learnt writing with slates and pencils, and
Progressed To fountain pens and ball pens and then Micro tips!

When we began drawing with crayons and evolved to
Color pencils and finally sketch pens!

When we started calculating
first with tables and then with
Clarke’s tables and advanced to
Calculators and computers!

When we chased one another in the  corridors

in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms
Drenched in sweat!

When we had lunch in classrooms, corridors, Playgrounds,
under the trees and even in cycle sheds!

When all the colors in the world,
Decorated the campus on the Second Saturdays!

 

When a single P.T. period in the week’s Time Table,

Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons!

When cricket was played with writing pads as bats,
And Neckties and socks rolled into balls!

 

 

When few played
“kabadi” and “Kho-Kho” in scorching sun,
While others simply played
“book cricket” in the Confines of classroom!

Of fights but no conspiracies,
Of Competitions but seldom jealousy!

When we used to watch Live Cricket telecast,
In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks!

When few rushed at 5:00 to
“Conquer” window seats in our School bus!
While few others had “Big Fun”, “peppermint” ,
“kulfi”, ” milk ice !” and “sharbat !” at 4o Clock!

Gone are the days
Of Sports Day,
and the annual School Day ,
And the one-month long
preparations for them.

Gone are the days
Of the stressful Quarterly,
Half Yearly and Annual Exams, And the most
enjoyed holidays after them!

Gone are the days
Of tenth and twelfth standards, when
We Spent almost the whole year writing revision tests!
We learnt, We enjoyed,
We played, We won,
We lost, We laughed,
We cried, We fought,
We thought.

With so much fun in them, so many friends,
So much experience, all this and more!

Gone are the days
When we used
to talk for hours with our friends!
Now we don’t have time to say a `Hi’!

Gone are the days
When we played games on the road!
Now we Code on the road with laptop!

Gone are the days
When we saw stars  Shining at Night!
Now we see stars when our code doesn’t Work!

Gone are the days
When we sat to chat with Friends on grounds!
Now we chat in chat rooms…..!

Gone are the days
Where we studied just to pass!
Now we study to save our job!

Gone are the days
Where we had no money in our pockets and still fun filled on our hearts!!
Now we have the atm as well as credit card but with an empty heart!!

Gone are the days
Where we shouted on the road!
Now we don’t shout even at home

Gone are the days
Where we got lectures from all!
Now we give lectures to all… like the one I’m doing now……!!

Gone are the days
But not the memories, which will be
Lingering in our hearts forever and ever and
Ever and ever and ever …..

Gone are the Days…. But still there are lot more Days to come in our
Life!!

NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE ,
DONT FORGET TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT STILL
EXISTS……
