Full Tension Hai Boss...

Indian Hockey team is going to play the Olympic Qualifiers in few days time in Chile. The matches are very crucial for India and Indian Hockey. We must must must win the tournament to qualify for the Olympics. The matches would be shown live on Ten Sports. Every match would be around 1.00 AM IST.

If we don't qualify for Olympics, it would be like Brazil not qualifying for world cup football. Although Indians don't play the same level of hockey what the Brazilians play football as of date, but our history might be similar to what Brazil has in Football. Just for the sake of history the Hockey team should pout a fight and defeat the chotu motu teams. I am full tensed what will happen if India doesn't qualify for the Olympics.

Economic Growth at 8.5 % !!! So What????

Its been a terrific economic growth rate in India at 8.5 % if we look at whats happening across the globe. US and UK are facing a huge economic down turn and recession might come into the West any day. People in the US are not able to pay the house EMIs and their medical bills. Poor Americans. So sad for them. Here have a tissue wipe your tear. Now fuck off.
But in India we are doing pretty OK, when it comes to growth. The Finance Minister says it would be 8.5% for the year 2007-2008.
  1. We have Indian companies, acquiring companies in the West and showing their strength to buy more.
  2. Rupee is stronger
  3. We have Malls all across the big cities
  4. Indians have more mobile phones than the land line phone connections
  5. Indians drive big cars
  6. Indian car manufacturers have brought out real cheap cars with good innovation
  7. Lots of jobs
  8. IPOs of some companies never heard of are making the common man getting richer & he really doesn't care as long as his portfolio is 200% higher than what he invested
  9. Sensex might go up or down but economy is stable
  10. Inflation is lower than that of a poor African Nation, for example Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Rwanda, Somalia, etc
  11. We haven't had any Hindu-Muslim, Sikh-Hindu, Christian-Muslim, Buddhist-Hindu - Muslim riots, in last 100 days
  12. Aaah there hasn't been any killing in the school since past 1 month
  13. etc etc etc

Lets not get forget we are all fucked up. We have forgotten, WE as in me, you, social reformers, social activists, politicians, IAS officers, etc etc everyone has forgotten that Indian is no less than Somalia or Burundi or Viet-Fucking-nam or any other fucked up African nation because of the following reasons :
  1. Farmers are committing suicides in the states of Punjab, Maharashtra, Andhra. Why?? Because there is no rain and the irrigation system is not available for the farmers. What have the leaders done in more than half a century??? They have not been able to build canals yet !!!
  2. There is bad sanitation and public transport system, not in 1 city, not in two cities but across the country. Its fucked up every where !!! I cant piss in the city of Madras in a public toilet because there are NON !!! And where there are you can only puke not piss !!!
  3. Half the country is illiterate !! May be more!!! But the government says its 30%. Screw you Indian Government, just because a farmer can sign his name doesn't mean he is literate.
  4. The government says there should be no child marriages but now they want to reduce the marriageable age of the guys to 18 years. NOT INCREASE BUT DECREASE IT !!! Question : What will the guy who gets married at 18 do to feed his family??? Or will he ask his dad for money??? Or it is NON of your concern??? अरे वह शादी कर रहा है , इस में सरकार क्या कर सकती है?
  5. What happened to the reduce the growth rate of population??? What happened to the One couple one child idea??? All down the drain???
  6. What about electricity to all the villages??? What about Roads connecting all the villages in India??? If a flood comes in Orrisa the supplies reach there after 10 days??? This is the infrastructure development in last 60 years?? People in Bombay local trains cant travel without smooching the person standing next to him. Why?? Because everyone stands so close in the local train that you have to inhale his breadth.
  7. What about One Country??? Sala Tamilian says Tamil Nadu is for them GO BACK NORTH INDIANS, Marathi says Maharashtra is for them GO BACK BIHARIS AND UPITES, Sardar says Punjab is for them GO BACK BIHARIS!!! What is taking the asshole Dr. Manmohan Singh to not come on TV and say "Mr So & So, what you are saying is absolutely wrong. You have no right to say this. India is one nation and whjat you are saying is against the constitution. Its the fundamental right of every Individual to live and work where ever he wants to." Is he hiding behind the Pallu of Sonia Gandhi???
  8. Why doesn't the Government do something so that culprits are brought to terms; Who are involved in 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy, 1984 Sikh Riots, 1992 Babri Masjid Demolition, 1993 Bombay Riots, 2002 Gujrat Riots, etc etc etc??
  9. Why doesn't the government pass a bill saying "Anyone who has cases against them and are under CBI scaner or judicial probe is awaited, can never stand for MP, MLA??" Why is it so difficult for the government?? Because even the people who will pass this bill are under the CBI scanner???
Then I have few words for the government of India.
  1. Don't say economic growth of India means India is developing. Say the industry is growing and the big companies are becoming bigger and rich are enjoying more. Poor are anyways dying.
  2. Say that we are a failure, it is the manufacturing, IT, Finance, Textile, etc etc industry because of which the Forex Reserves of India have grown.
  3. Say that we really don't know what to do with $1 Trillion. Say it, there is no harm in saying "I really don't know. I am screwed in my head!!! We are morons who are running this country. We might even screw up the growth with our horrible policies"
  4. Say sorry to the victims of tragedies I have counted above. Say that "We haven't given you justice, we are sorry"
  5. Say that "Just because the economy is growing doesn't mean everyone is happy. There is a lot to be done in every rural village in India." Tell us what do you mean when you say LOTS TO BE DONE.
  6. And last but not the least "REDUCE TAXES!!!"
  7. I really think VAT is not necessary if I eat a Burger or Pizza. Who the fuck are you to charge money from me if I eat whatever I want to eat??? Someone grows something in his fields, someone else processes it, someone sells it, someone buys and eats it. Who the FUCK ARE YOU to ask money from everyone???
As Indians I think we are just too tolerant against the government and are too scared of the Politicians.

Two Decent Movies

Eastern Promises

Its a story about a girl who works as a nurse in a hospital. Her life changes when a 14 year old girl delivers a baby and dies. The nurse gets hold of the diary of the 14 year old girl and tries to understand what problems she faced during her short life.
The 14 year old girl is from Russia and so is the nurse's father. She meets people and tries to read through the diary. With this she gets herself into the trap of Russian mafia working in the UK. Among the mafia is also a person from the Russian police who is trying to destroy the mafia. She finds that out and they both come close. How it all ends is a different story, but the way the story is told is bloody brilliant. It’s a must watch.

A History of Violence

This is the movie made by the same director who made Eastern Promises.
The movie starts in a small motel where two guys kill the motel owner very calmly as if they are buying a chewing gum. These two guys are now out of cash and are passing through a small town. They go in a coffee shop owned by Tom Stall and ask him for cash. Tom Stall is a nice guy, has a pretty wife and two children. After being asked for cash, Tom says, "Sir we don’t really have enough people coming to this place we don’t have much money", but they start molesting the woman who works there. That’s it, Tom kills both the bastards and becomes a hero in America in no time.
Everyone wants to come to his coffee shop and talk to the hero. But then after few days some 3-4 guys from Philadelphia come down and call Tom "Joey". There is this huge confusion what’s going on and all that. They ask him to come to Philadelphia and settle the score. Tom Stall keeps telling that they are confused and he is Tom and not Joey.
Tom's family becomes very terrified with these guys showing up in the mall and any place the family members go. These guys then show up at Tom's house and he kills all three of them.
He gets injured and tells his wife that he is actually Joey and he had left those guys long back. This Tom guy was in-fact a serial killer and used to work for a gang in Philadelphia. He had some unfinished business and he had cheated this gang and ran out of it, so that he can start a new life.
His wife gets very wild and feels like he has cheated her and had never told her this part of his life. She feels he is a serial killer who is now showing his split personality and might cause harm to the children some day. She doesn’t leave him but starts ignoring him even if he is in the house.
But even after the death of the three members the Gang leader keeps calling him to Philadelphia and wants to meet him. Tom goes to Philadelphia and meet this gang leader who is no one else but Tom’s brother. What happens during the meeting and after that is to be seen in the movie.
It is one of those movies, which are slow, but very gripping and keep you at the edge of your seat through out the 2 hours. Must watch again!!!
