Moving forward or backward?

Whenever, I open the newspaper, there is always a little snippet that reports about... love affair gone sore... or lovers taking the way of death.. coz of the family pressure.... and if not these, then there are the politicians who are 'condemning' the way we (read as youngsters) are.

The most recent being Right Wing activist protesting and creating ruckus in Manglore. As if that was not enough, Ashok Gehlot current C.M. of Rajasthan has stood up in support saying that ' Pub Mall culture' is not a part of our culture...!!!
Whenever... the fundamentalist do this kind of show sha... I am taken aback... in rage... because, till date I have not understood, what is our culture... India has always been a very open culture, always absorbing the footprints that various people have left on it. And, last I knew, India is a free country and what we the young generation do, should be looked at in a more open frame of mind and not in the close frame of mind...
I am wondering, when we can talk about the IT revolution... and moving ahead with times, why the fuck cant people accept that, having a boyfriend/girlfriend... or rather going and partying with friends is also a part of the moving ahead with times... who says that we have forgotten our culture and moral values... its just that we are trying very hard to mould the moral values in the present time frame...
Even today, a guy and a girl can't be just friends. This is a sick mentality. And, I don't think that there is anyway that this mentality can be changed... 
Our parents lecturing us on moral values is still understandable... but being lectured on the same by the Netas who change the moral values to suit the changing parties and the changing political scenario... that is SAD...!!!

Where is our country going.... after 60 years of being republic... instead of moving forward... this pig hole called politics is just pulling us backwards.... 

Where is the light?? 


Nice article..we have to accept the fact that change is never gonna be smooth..The Indian society has undergone a siesmic change in the last two decades but there is still a generation gap & sadly the hardliners of the previous generation are brainwashing the vulnerable uneducated youth with their anachronic ideals .Having said that wat we should be happy about is that things ARE changing as epitomised by Bob Dylan's
"Times they are A-changin'"

I know things are changing... but call me impatient.. I can hardly see the change.
I mean the fucked up politicians for the sake of the 'moral' values, dont want AIDS/SEX/ADOLESCENT education... they are ready to have the society burn in the hell called AIDS... but not educate them about it...!!

But, I am trying very hard to be optimistic... maybe the youth is learning...and will start electing the right kind of people...!!!

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
