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

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it
