The Anti-Corruption Scam

I am not a patriot. I am a very selfish person. I care about myself a lot. But I want something that every Common Man of this country wants. I want a clean ambience. I want the roads to be smooth. I want easy Tatkal. I want the fuel prices lower. I want to get my driving license smoothly. I want a corruption free system. I don’t want any criminal lawmakers. I want to be free in every aspect of life.
After 66 years of independence we are not even close to freedom. We are just slaves. The only freedom we have is to elect our masters, that too only once in 5 years. Giving them full freedom to exploit us. And in the next election we elect the opposition which does the same. They show themselves as opposites, but form consensus to oppose Janlokpal and even the Supreme Court ruling in order to protect their criminal MP’S and MLA’S(http://ibnlive.in.com/news/cabinet-negates-sc-order-ordinance-to-shield-convicted-mps-mlas-cleared/424283-37-64.html ). A simple common sense tells that if they themselves are Corrupt, why would they make strong laws against themselves ?
The definition of Politics has changed in this era. It runs on Black Money. In order to clean the system, we need a cancer. A Scam if I may say so. A scam against the the current convention of Politics. An Anti-Corruption Scam.
Is it even possible to do this. A few years ago it wasn’t. But the scenario has changed. If we want to make a difference, we have to start from somewhere. Lets start from the Capital. Elections are coming this November in Delhi. There are 3 major Contenders. Two of them are big Ones (pun intended) . One is BJ”Pee”. And other led by Dik- “Shit” . Both are pimps of corruption. If you want to be treated like an excreta then go ahed and vote for them.
 I know a party which is transparent, has non-criminal candidates, vows to bring Janlokpal and Power to people.  If you are fed up of the current system, Please Vote for AAP. You may feel that one vote won’t make a difference. Of course you are right. That’s why we have to influence other votes too. I am doing the same here. Many citizens say that they don’t give a “fuck” about Politics. Well if you don’t give a  ”fuck” now, you won’t have any ”fuck” left  to give for the next 5 years. Agar Haq lena hai to ”fuck” to dena padega. Kyun ki agar AAP nahi aaega to aapka kya hoga. The Big question here is not that Whether AAP has the capability to win the elections. The big question is Whether the citizens of Delhi have enough Righteousness and Ambition to win AAP.
 How can you help ? 1. You can Vote. 2. You can donate. 3.You can write blogs just like I am doing. Or 4 . You can become an active Volunteer.
I may be selfish but I don’t mind sponsoring a few Brooms to clean my surroundings.
If a non-Patriot, non-Selfless person like me can do something that will benefit every Common Man including me and you, then why don’t you ?

It's Tough Being a Roger Fan

When the time gets tough, the tough gets going and when the tough gets going, time is bound to get tough. Not a general philosophy but is apparently true for Roger Federer. He is winning fewer titles, losing a lot more matches, Skying the ball more often and making dozens of groundstroke errors.  Given his records and achievements his career graph is slipping without a doubt. He has even lost in rankings but certainly not in his Fan retention capacity.
People say that in order to establish legacy he has to Quit at his prime. But Roger is not doing that, audaciously defying the mindset of other legends. He won't quit and perhaps will redefine legacy that he has already defined once. He is playing because he can and we are his fans because we love to see him play. His this attitude along with his artistry with his racket, his magical strokes and his out of the world decision making makes a man Roger's fan. His loyal fans are royal fans because of his regime in their hearts.
It is not difficult to become his fan. His legend is legendary, his moments are momentous and to see his game is just spell bounding. We still see glimpses of perfection in his erratic current game. To see him lose is a heartbreak every single time. But we will still support him the next time he plays fully being aware of the reality. That's why it not tough to be his fan, it is just tough being one.

Sri Sris Of the Oval World

No no no no no. This article has nothing to do with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar or The Art Of Living. It is all about the art of fixing, setting, betting and scamming used by the white and blue collared legends in the cricketing world.
One of the Sri's, Sreesanth revealed many startling and queering facts about the recent spot fixing scandal in an exclusive interview. Although he accepted taking part in the fixing, he took umbrage of the allegation that he bowled the over badly on purpose. "That's ridiculous" he said ."I don't take money for bowling bad. Bowling bad is my intrinsic nature. I deliver good when compensated." The statement raised more questions than it answered. It led to the logical next question "If bowling bad is your nature then how do you manage to bowl good when required." "That's the real question. See, the outcome of a delivery depends on the performance of both Batsman and the Bowler" he smirked. "So...?" i asked in curiosity. "I pay a part of my compensation to the Batsman on Crease to bat bad. That's how i do it". "But then how does the batsman know beforehand that he is going to bat when you bowl ?" "Arey bhai...Are you an idiot or a reporter. Can't you even make this out. He doesn't know that beforehand. I deal with him on the spot. That's the reason it is called spot fixing. Duhh." " Ok ok Sree. There is just a last questions our readers would want to know. If you did not bowl bad that Over on purpose, why did you show your towel ?." "Actually it was the indication that i wasn't going to bowl as per the plan. Mera Zameer jaag gaya tha us waqt." he sobbed. "That was the first time i felt that i was betraying my nation and fans. See how luck works. Humko mili uski saza, jo hum khata kar na sake ." he continued quoting a popular phrase. He admitted regretting his decision to fix. He still misses the ODI World Cup victory. His smile used to be golden then. It was a sign of his integrity. Later, it got disintegrated by the lust for money, women and ego. Now he go's to jail and his future seems to be fixed.
Well, that was all we could get from Sreesanth. Stay tuned for the encounter with the other Sri.

Badminton Life

I was 6 years old.I still remember the day when i first held a racket.It was not voluntary.My mother made me do it with the sole purpose of getting me out of the house.She used to feed me the shuttles to help me gain a hand eye co-ordination.The way it started was not my first choice but it gave me another reason to be grateful to her.
Slowly i started developing interest in the game.I used to follow the game of Prakasham Uncle.He was a 50+ man with great enthusiasm and skill for the game.He was very friendly and awesomely witty.I used to sit and watch his game and when he was done i would persuade him to play with me.
I can't believe that i play with even more zeal now.This sport has given me more than anything else has.Friends,enemies,rivals,successes,failures,injuries,disappointments and moments are to name a few.But more than that it has given me another reason to live.I feel suffocated if i don't play for even a single day.Not just sports,it teaches lessons in life too.It has given me strength to recover.It gave me a tear in my ligament but not a single in my eye.Thats the beauty of this game.It doesn't matter how much tension is there in the guts of your racket.It matters how much guts you have when you are under tension.Badminton also teaches us to "love all" with the exception of the opponent,while on court.I also have developed an ego that i can beat anyone.It is the acceptance of a defeat yet rejection of anyone's superiority over me.When i am on the court i don't care whom i am representing or who my opponent is.I love playing with this attitude of "Ye Court mera hai aur mai iss court ka Jaykant Shikre".
I don't think anything,absolutely anything can stop me from playing Badminton.Nothing can take me away from this sport because I am Sport.I was not born with a racket but i am sure i will die with one.The kill at the net,the skill at the strokes,the drills to improve and the thrill of a fight gives me the will to go on and on.The smash of Dan,the speed of Lee,the class of Gade and Hidayat increase my motivation level.I extend my gratitude towards everyone who is responsible for my presence on the court.
