r we not INDIANS ??

Yest I was sitting at one of my distributer's place n both of us were talking serious business. There was one old man probably a guest since I was seeing him for the 1st time. He asked me where is my native place. It was very strange as he didnt ask my name n what I do.
After being quite for sometime his next bouncer was what is my caste. I got confused n said what . He made his ques clear again as if it was the most important thing which defines anybody's identity even more imp than his name. I finally replied Indian. He reacted like he is hearing this word for the 1st time. I repeated I am an Indian.
Certainly it hurt his ego n he gave a ful lecture on our roots n origin. It was very similar to a scene of Swadesh movie.
After he finished off I said him "isliye maine aapse ye kaha ki main ek bhartiya hoon"
At last he would have understood that the time has changed n the new generation understands the meaning of the word INDIAN.
But still a major part of our population are still stuck in the age old thinkings. They dont feel proud in saying themselves an INDIAN.
I dont want to go into detail of this controversial topic but it feels bad when people ask such nonsense ques.
Jai ho...

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
