The kuduremukha adventure

Its complete! a trek to kuduremukha i mean... what a trek!! Some would say that it was too much to do in just one day... but what happened happened!! :)
now that i'm sitting at home with swollen ankles due to 33.3 kms of trek in 14 hours, i though i'd do something kinda constructive... so, i wrote a story based on our trek.

its my first attempt at writing something - anything that big! so, please have a look and give some . Maybe it'll inspire me to write something hi-fi... will may later become a movie and earn me millions ;) That day, i wont forget you :)

I've uploaded a pdf version on rapidshare... click on the link below to download it. its only 192kb!

Kat-ass-trop aka Malcom Effect

"Malcom effect implies catastrophic changes."

"But... all systems are working perfectly!"

"Thats when it happens."

We really think we are doing something big... or, at least we dream to do something big. Little we realise how stupid and incapable we are.
We think being an engineer or scientist or something on those lines is a real big thing and that we will contribute to the welfare of the world. Do you think so too?

"Scientists are actually preoccupied with accomplishment. So they are focused on whether they can do something. They never stop to ask if they should do something. They conveniently define such considerations as pointless. if they don't do it, someone else will. Discovery, they believe, is inevitable. So they just try to do it first. That's the game in science. Even pure scientific discovery is an aggressive, penetrative act. It takes big equipment, and it literally changes the world afterward. Particle accelerators scar the land, and leave radioactive byproducts. Astronauts leave trash on the moon. There is always some proof that scientists were there, making their discoveries. Discovery is always a rape of the natural world. Always."

"So what's the answer?"

"Get rid of them. Take them out of power."

"Then we'll lose all the advances."

"What advances? The number of hours women devote to housework has not changed since 1930, despite all the advances. All the vacuum cleaners, washer-dryers, trash compactors, garbage disposals, wash-and-wear fabrics... Why does it still take as long to clean the house as it did in 1930? Because there haven't been any advances. Not really. Thirty thousand years ago, when men were doing cave paintings, they worked twenty hours a week to provide themselves with food and shelter and clothing. The rest of the time, they could play, or sleep, or do whatever they wanted. And they lived in a natural world, with clean air, clean water, beautiful trees and sunsets. Think about it. We've had four hundred years of modern science, and we ought to know by now what it's good for, and what it's not good for. It's time for a change."

"Before we destroy the planet?"

"You think you can destroy this planet? You can't even come close."

"Most people believe this planet is in jeopardy."

"Well, its not."

"All the experts agree that our planet is in trouble."

"Let me tell you about our planet. Our planet is four and half billion years old. There has been life on this planet for nearly that long. Three point eight billion years. The first bacteria. And later, the first multicellular animals, then the first complex creatures, in the sea, on the land. Then the great sweeping ages of animals - the amphibians, the dinosaurs, the mammals, each lasting millions upon millions of years. Great dynasty of creatures arising, flourishing, dying away. All this happening against a background of continuous and violent upheaval, mountain ranges thrust up and eroded away, cometary impacts, volcanic eruptions rising and falling, whole continents moving... Endless constant and violent change... Even today, the greatest geographical feature on the planet comes from two great continents colliding, buckling to make the Himalayan mountain range over millions of years. The planet has survived everything, in its time. It will certainly survive us."

As said by Ian Malcom, the chaos theorist, one of Crichton's brilliant characters in his infamous book, Jurassic Park. These are excerpts directly taken from there.

If you haven't read the book, you are missing something! If you have seen the movie, but haven't read the book, you only know Jurassic Park as a Dinosaur movie! Go read that book! and then watch the movie again! You will feel the difference!

Those days...

ಆ ದಿನಗಳು

Lights... Camera... Action!
A movie par excellence, and with no major budget as well!
I think its movies like these that are keeping our Kannada Film Industry afloat. Once upon a time, Kannada film Industry aka Sandalwood, had a golden age, with some really awesome movies, heros like ನಮ್ಮ ಅಣ್ಣಾವ್ರು, ಸಾಹಸ ಸಿಂಹ, extremely talented directors, one of my all time favourites - ಪುಟ್ಟಣ್ಣ ಕಣಗಾಲ್ etc! But in recent times, nothing much has come out!

aa dinagalu is one extremely well directed movie! It has about two songs and not much background score as well! It really makes you think... do we really need a big star cast, major budget. This movie showcases the pure talent of a director. Really! Hats off to director Chaitanya and the 'those days' crew for a job well done!

Its a known fact that movies can create magic. But its really nice to see a simple movie give that delicate touch of finesse. Simple costumes, simple dialogues, simple background scores, simple cast, simple set up and simply brilliant!
This movie reminds me of a tamizh movie called "Velli Tirai" which translates to 'Silver Screen'. Its about how an upcoming director fights for a place in the hoplessly complicated and unfair film industry! The movie stars veteran Prakash Rai. This too was a simple movie. The last 20 odd minutes were simply brilliant! The movie as a whole may not be as captivating as this one, but it shows how simple movies can also be made.

I also remember a song from Superstar's Kuselan... It's titled 'Cinema Cinema'. A line in that song goes "Kadaval yaar enru yaar paartaar adai kannil kaatum inda cinema thaan" meaning "Who knows what God looks like, but its only cinema that shows you how he looks"!

Very True!

You've got mail!

Emails! they have simply changed the way we communicate! I still wonder, how the post offices are still able to live!! :)

Have you written any letter? I remember writing letters to Uncle Pai of Tinkle, long ago! But after that, it just stopped!
Until a few months back. When I sent a Post card to a friend in Denmark, when I was in Germany. I had to literally search for where a post office is, how it'd look and find out what one must ask for!

I started writing snail mails! It obviously gives a personal touch! It feels really great to receive a letter, postcard, something from a person far far away! A person you haven't met, maybe haven't talked as well!

Postcards!! Now-a-days, I have a new hobby. Exchanging postcards. Yes, it may take upto a month for a post card to go to Canada from here (its the longest, normally it takes 10-15 days), but, the personal touch goes along with it! It feels really great to reading different handwritings! Different emotions, different things!

You will feel really nice when you get a, say, two-page letter from a friend! Handwritten! I mean, to think of it, that person must actually make some time for you! Out of their busy schedule, they must sit and write a letter, put it in an envelope, paste stamps and actually post it! It shows the human-ness! An e-mail, which just goes in a jiffy cant really have this kind of a feeling!
And then the wait!! :) Heard of the song kabutar ja ja ja? :)

Everyday I wait to get back home and hope to find a letter from someone out there!

I've got mail!

You can find pics of the cards I've received till now.

Thanks a ton to everyone snail-mailing me!
And a big thank-you to the Postal Department the world over! You people are really doing a great job!

Assume you own something, anything, take, for example, a book, a bike, a bicycle, a car, anything! Would you like seeing it get destroyed? or stolen? or man-handled? right in front of your eyes? No!!

Why isn't the same concern shown towards many other things, greater things, truly invaluable things, that truly-madly-deeply belongs to us!

India is a huge country with loadsa people... and many many cultures and traditions...
but... the problem is that we are slowly losing most of our traditions and rituals!
sad... real sad... don't you think? too much westernization :) Yes yes! I'm back to square one isn't it?

Not exactly! (Phew!)

We have different people following different traditions and practices. These people pass on the knowledge to their children, and they to their children and thus the practices go on for generations.

But as civilization advanced, man started going places and learning newer things. He thus started spending more time elsewhere than at home, learning these practices. And so, slowly and steadily the knowledge became extinct! There are so many things that we don't know why we follow, but we still follow! Some of the "high IQ" lot condemn practicing of these as they are "superstitious", as their intelligent brain couldn't find a "suitable" explanation for why it has to be done! Thus we lose these practices as well. We are adopting newer ways of life and letting go of our actual practices, which actually identify us! We are losing our identity!!

The only way to save our stolen identity is to be us! To be with people who follow our traditions... who... (to be completed when I'm in mood for it)

Step aside! The Dark Knight is here!!

Vo mai gyaad!!

This is it! the bestest movie that has been made! the deadliest superhero movie ever made!
All those people who got their kids to show them batman would be thoroughly disappointed! The movie made us see what a superhero really is... and what a super villain can do!

Behold the Joker... the mad man who is as brilliant as batman himself!!

When you watch movies, you generally have one or two occasions where you go "madar of gawd! what the?!!" this movie was almost fully like that!!
We didn't realize there was an interval! and we looked at our watches and "dude! there is another half of the movie still left!!"

I'm gonna watch this movie again!

This movie opened at #4 on Imdb... moved to #3 on the night i'd seen it and next morning its #1!!

I simply cant imagine how there can be such a movie... abslutely mindblowing!

This aint not fair...

Football… Football…Foot… ball… my Foot... your ball…

I was watching ManU vs. Liverpool the other day. It was a decent match, I’m not a big football person… so, I don’t care too much bout the players and all!

But anyway, something crept into my mind and it’s not good :) (as always!)

These guys playing in the EPL and other leagues are paid in millions!! And that too for doing something they simply loooovvvee! And I work my arse away for 9.5 hours a day sitting in front of a dumb comp, screwing up my health, and I won’t make even half of their money, even if I work for 10 years!! And I can never say I looovvveee what I do!

How unfair… but they play awesome football, which I can’t do!

So, I started thinking about the things that I could do… the list isn’t big… but it’s better than – kick balls around big time Period.

Ok, maybe some of these guys can do other things as well, but come on! I don’t think they can do anything that is lifesaving! (Not that anything I do saves life, but it doesn’t waste others’ lives!)

Look at these multi millionaires… they have changed the way things happen in the world! People come just to watch them play! Woohoo! Good job… but wtf! Paying them atrocious amounts of money for doing nothing?? That sucks! It’s ridiculous that the whole world is doing such stupid things! Why pay millions to some 'extremely' good player, when you can find reasonably good players for 10% that cost?! Off course the rookie may not be as good as Ronaldo or Gubaldo whoever… but at 10% the cost he’s more worthy… He would become as good as Ronaldo in a couple of months of proper training!

The various companies like Siemens, Samsung must stop sponsoring these people and pay people like us, who do the dirty coding and bug fixes, in millions! Without us, these companies won’t be able to cough up such huge sums of money, just for advertising!!

There’s one person who comes into my mind thinking about all this…

Dr. Devi Shetty. Every Single day this cardiac surgeon saves tens of lives! And he charges only those people who can pay! For the poorer ones needing medical attention, he waivers the surgery charges, arranges for monetary support and all, and he aint no millionaire! Don’t you think he should be paid in millions for the kind of job he is doing? Siemens, Vodafone, Samsung and all there ‘good for nothing’ companies must sponsor such people to do what they are doing! These are the ones who have sacrificed their lives for the betterment of humanity and society!

If you don’t know about an Open Heart Surgery, please do a Google search and read up! It’s really a big challenge to open up the ribs, expose the heart, use a machine instead of the heart and re-route all blood through this machine (which pumps blood when the heart is being operated) and then do the actual surgery, with utmost care, and then put back what ever was opened, and not forget any forceps inside! One hell of a procedure! And he does it again, and again, and again, and again…

Doctors are the ones who must be paid in millions… not footballers and other sportsmen!

And off course the techchies like me n u ;)

And… what good is football or other sport? Cricket? NBA? And Golf! Stupid stupid game! I don’t see any excitement in trying to hit a ball into holes in the least number of strokes! Whoever came up with that sport! And whoever called it a sport! There’s no running, no jumping, no kicking, no throwing, no excitement… the slightest “rush”, if u may say so, is when u hit a ball into a hole – LOSER! And these dudes are also earning more than they can spend! What a waste! So freaking unfair! Check out what wiki said about golf.

To hit the ball, the club is swung at the motionless ball wherever it has come to rest from a side stance. Many golf shots make the ball travel through the air (carry) and roll out for some more distance (roll).

Every shot is a compromise between length and precision, and long shots are often less precise than short ones. A longer shot may result in a better score if it helps reduce the total number of strokes for a given hole, but the benefit may be more than outweighed by additional strokes or penalties if a ball is lost, out of bounds, or comes to rest on difficult ground. Therefore, a skilled golfer must assess the quality of his or her shots in a particular situation in order to judge whether the possible benefits of aggressive play are worth the risks.

What crap! This doesn’t count as a sport… It’s stupid!

The only sport I would recommend is F1 :)

Why you will ask! And I do have answers...

First of all, all the cars that you people happily drive around are the way they are because of motor sports. Much of the improvements in your car, be it performance oriented or safety oriented, are due to motor sports. It’s this sport that truly is pushing technology to the limits… and being a F1 driver is no joke… its not like playing golf… anyone can play golf… but not anyone can become a F1 driver…

An F1 driver needs to be super fit… He loses 3-4 liters of water during a single race! And, he has to take split second decisions driving at average speeds of 220kmph. It’s not a joke!

As opposed to a golfer… stupid game – golf.

And the driver must know how the car works… so that he is able to give decent feedback to his race engineers. All F1 drivers must at least be given honorary bachelor degrees in automotive engineering! Again, its not justified these drivers are paid in millions… coz people like me are ready to drive everyday, just if these companies agree to fill our tummies and nothing else! So, for much lesser cost, they can do all the testing, albeit in two/three tries! Which is good enough coz with experience; we can become Michael Schumacher like. Oh and FYI Schumi donated 10 million US$ for Asian tsunami victims.

Bottom line – what I’m trying to say here is, people like us, are ruining our health by sitting in front of a computer and working our arses away to god knows where, for meager amounts of money. And sport “stars” are paid to have a fitness regime, wear Nike, drink coke, and play!! Ridiculous! We have to kiss arse with the managers to get out of work on time so that we can do a little bit of jogging, which will maintain out health and help the company in turn… - No one cares!


FYI - Christiano Ronaldo, one of the super well known footballers owns a couple of cars costing 100,000 bucks Plus... I bet he cant say whats head or tail of it... He just knows to drive.
I also bet not all sports persons can tell why a computer suddenly switched off... Is it the hardware? Is it the software? I bet loads of YOU won't know that either!

I'm not saying everyone must know everything... But, a mere footballer earns in millions, but a person like u n me, who statistically knows more than that sportler is earning around 500$ for a month of slogging-the-arse off

Todays games

People who know me even a little would know that i'm a major game freak...
i may not be the Ult1mat3 Nem3sYs or Fatal1ty or g0D in gaming, but, i had my days as a good gamer in college...
Under the aliases of kab4al, uk, kat-ass-trop, dark horse and so on, i've created fear in many a hearts with my skillful fragging... want proof? have a look here...

chk eetz the frags by the kabals... oh... and here is quake...

so... i'm a good gamer... and i play a loads of games... well... at least i used to!!

I read an article by Mr.Maddox and i started thinking! Seriously! there is a point! whats the point in playing games with super duper graphics?! i mean come on! one needs to work hard to actually win in these!! i can give you loads of examples of such games! where you have to search for shit, or fight with 'villians' and the hi definition graphics makes this suck!
i'll show u an example... have a look here...

i'm actually driving a car... and can barely see whats ahead! actually the picture is just one frame... so you can see stuff pretty clearly here... but, imagine at a frame rate of 40+... you can barely see a thing! and it becomes ridiculously tough to actually drive the car!

i started playing the game to have a good time! not a tough time trying to find where the freakin spikes are!!

now a days the concept of a good game has undergone so much change! i still remember those days when i used to love dave! and not to say the TV video games! awesome fun!! Hell yes! Contra!! and also kung fu... mario... road rage etc etc etc! i would be so thrilled to play those games!! every single time! but i don't see that happening now a days!

why is there such a change!! games are not only about extreme graphics and reality! its about the fun factor! which i would say most of today's games are missing or... its better put as being short lived...

may of you have heard of Grand Theft Auto... what an absolute kick ass game it is! i started playing GTA 2... which is a very low graphics game compared to its successors... as a result, the controls were damn easy... and the handling was awesome! but with GTA 3, vice city and others coming, the game became a first person type... and damn! was it tough!! and San Andreas! i think i played it only for 2 days... and got bugged of it... every time i enter a car, i have to set my camera to behave the way i want... but it refused! its so frustrating!! the whole purpose of gaming is defeated! where is the fun?!!

I hope the game developers go back and see what we really need!

there have been absolute kick ass games... like CS 1.6, HL, Quake, UT2000, Serious Sam, NFS PU, AOE, AOM, Max Payne etc... i hope i can keep playing these again and again and again!!

da fundas de life - 1NE

Eminem once sang

Lose yourself in the music
the moments u own it
u better never let it go
u only get one shot do not miss your chance blow
cause opportunity comes once in a lifetime!

and its pretty damn true!!
we dont realise how precisious and cool our lives are! and we bitch about small insignificant shit!

so I, the noble guy that I am, will give you fundas... so that you will appreciate ur life and thus other's lives too... so the whole world would become a cooler place to live in!

bring on the comments on whats bothering u... n i'll show the easy door...

to start with,

problem 1ne - traffic
well, almost all the ones living in major cities working for IT or otherwise find the city's traffic too ridiculous! u get pissed off to ride ur bike/drive ur car... coz theres just no place... and the agonizing traffic lights... damn! i need a break!

solution - u need a cell phone... and an opposite sex person to sms to...
how will this help? - well... once u start sending n receiving sms, trust me, u will forget about traffic! u will want the traffic jams to be bigger... so that you will get time to message back!
and every time ur phone vibrates in ur pocket, you would be eager to stop ur vehicle at the next signal! so the traffic signals dont bother you no more! :)

see... simple funda...

This world is a Matrix...

stop talking about technology...
we dont need no technology... we goddamn OWN technology!

we are in a Matrix... built to make us believe as true what really is false...we must get unplugged...
i can only offer you the truth... i can only lead you to it... believing it is up to u...

ur so called NASA, with all the hi-fi hubble space exploorer and several other similar stuff has declared pluto as a dwarf planet... and they could do it only now!! in the year 2006 AD!!
our Rishis, with no hi-fi equipment had already calculated pluto's eccentric orbit... and that it was a small object... unlike normal planets!
these technologically adcanced countries didnt even know earth was round!! Aryabhatta had proved in his time (500 AD) that earth was round... and it's already stated in the vedas which (i believe) are by far the oldest scripturs available on earth!

even in the 1400s when columbus set out to find a route to India, he was not funded as europeans thought earth was flat and columbus would fall off it trying to find a reverse route!! God!!
so much for NASA... we are ready to believe whatever they say! our Ramayana has told about rama-sethu... and we never believed it... and still many dont believe it! and when NASA released a picture of, what they have called Adam's bridge, which is nothing but the rama sethu, we are like, "oh really!! i didnt know!"
u can read this article about it, if interested...

speed of light...
people in Aristotle's (380 BC) era believed light had infinite speed!! only in 1675 AD was rough estimates made about speed of light...but... in Rigveda, already speed of light was calculated! and accurately! not mere estimates!! see this...
nimishardha is the term used! u can find another article about this in here

and you people say you are looking for technology!!
you want more?

yoga... everyone knows the goods of yoga... and i wont say anything about it! no elaborate and expensive gym equipments and u have a fit body, and a healthy mind to go along!talking about medicine, we all know charaka and sushruta... who have done proper surgeries in their times!! u can search some info about them on wikipedia!

ok... now lets talk about war technologies...
the most deadliest weapon... the nuke... haha! already has been used... no no... i'm talking about before nagasaki and is said a nuke was used during mahabharatha... the kurukshetra war... where 16 billion people
have said to have been killed in a span of 18 days!! *todays world population is around 6.5 billion*

this is the translation of the description of the episode, translated from Musala Parva of Mahabharatha...

…Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana hurled a single projectile
Charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as ten thousand Suns
Rose in all its splendor…

…it was an unknown weapon,
An iron thunderbolt,
A gigantic messenger of death,
Which reduced to ashes
The Entiure race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.

…the corpses were so burned
As to be unrecognizable.
Their hair and nails fell out;
Pottery broke without apparent cause,
And the birds turned white.
After a few hours
All foodstuffs were infected…

…To escape from this fire
The soldiers threw themselves in streams... (courtesy gurudev's blog)

still u question our oldies?! damn!

i've shown you we are better in Nuclear physics, astronomy, chemistry, Biology... lets talk geology...
i'm tired man... u people seem to be unworthy of the information you are getting! simply click here

even the ramayana... the vanaras mentioned were indeed present! search for neanderthal man and u will see... dating back ramayana, it shows it happened at a time when humans had evolved from monkey-men... and there were also the monkey-men, both co-existed... and some theories say jambhavan was a yeti... the whole world is realising the truth slowly... but we... being Indians are oblivious to these facts!!

we were always living at one level higher than the rest of the world... untill now a days!! in the recent times, when we say history, it is only about British India... and struggle for Independence! which is again a part of the non-Indian system of education!

and we go to hi-fi English medium schools!we talk english, walk english, laugh english! and most of us cant even read and write out own mother tongues!! what are we headed towards?!

go to europe... Germans speak only German... all boards, announcements are in german... same is the case with italy, France, spain, Austria... everywhere in Europe! no one really cares about English! why are we giving it so much improtance?!
i'm not against english or any other language or culture!! the point im trying to make is that we are giving English so much importance that we are neglecting our languages! how many of you non Karnataka people are in bangalore from considerable time? have you given one thought about learning Kannada? no... why? coz everything is available in english... but... for a 4 month deputation to germany, i was in a german course learning the basics of the language... so that i dont get lost one there!i mean, ok... flexibility aside, must we not learn our language with passion? it OUR LANGUAGE! its ours!! if we dont talk about it, who else will?!!

Samskritham, the mother of all languages... none of us knows anything about it! again... untill the westerners talked about it! only when Forbes magazine talked about sanskrit as a perfectly built language, extremely well suited for computer programming did we think about it...

whats with us?! why are we like this?! we nod to everything the "developed" countries say! we are something like slaves! doing what they say... everytime!! :(

it saddens me that people around me question "why must i study sanskrit?"

we learn A B C from kindergarten and even at 10th Std we are skeptical about taking up sanskrit!! its our way of life... our culture... we have to be proud about it!
over these years, we have been so accustomed to the western education that we believe our culture is inferior! we are so ignorant that we condemn it as superstition!! so much hopless our state has become that the word 'purana' has come to mean nonsense!! that so not right!

take any field, we had a role to play... all the number system... advanced mathematics... tigonometry... everything was pioneered by our ancestors in those days... and yet somehow, we dont ackowledge that!
i have heard about some schools in Russia having prayers in Sanskrit! and we, we pray in english! full "hi-fi" that we are!

Indus valley civilization was the most advanced civilization of its time! ask any archaeologist, he will tell u! we were the ones who were cultivating crops (including crop rotation)when the rest of the world were wanderers and nomads living on hunting and eating raw meat. its no wonder the europeans still dont cook their food well... and eat it witout
anything at all... just plain and raw! they are so behind us!!

see the link below for more info about the Indus Civilization...

this is our history! and you want us to FORGET IT?!!
its not some pathetic love failure in my dumb ass life that i can say "that was the past... let me forget it!"
i bet none of ur dumb asses had no goddamn clue how rich our heritage is... damn!
you people want us to catch up with "technologically developed" countries? the ones which are fighting wars for no reason... doing crap in the name of religion? u must be out of ur mind!

if you are thinking i-pods and laptops and hi-fi technology... then u are **** i'm not finding a word... one of u brilliant GRE greats can fill up this blank...

it hurts me to see young kids going around with earphones on listenin to music on their new hi-fi gadgets! they are harming their ear! soon they will be deaf!

why were our great grandfathers and their generation people able to live for 100+ years? coz they we not relying on ur so called "technology"technology is synthetic... and everything synthetic has side effects, which are BAD! even the 'english' medicine u take has side effects! i hear there is a subject for the MBBS ppl which deals with what medicines have what kinds side effects!

we have all the required technology... we only need to see it! only then will we improve... buy going behind the "technologically developed" countries, we will get no where but more inferior in our own eyes!

everything in those places are catchy... everything automated... EVERYTHING! u dont need to ask anyone for directions... u can follow the signs and get anywhere... u dont even need to ask for the location of a street... u will find it... but whats the point?! limited human interaction... our country is great... as put in the opening song in Sivaji - "pakkatu veetukkum seethi samakkira panbu inge valzhum".

and wo... we talk crap about the superstar and his anti newtonian stunts... but we watch Matrix with mouths wide open! "kya sexy scene thi yaar! kya jump maara, saala!"
we accept everything western without a question... and we raise infinite questions about our stuff!!

and i still cant understand so many NGOs teaching small children english! its not needed!! they need to learn the true Indian culture! that will give them all they need to live happily ever after! teach them hindi, kannada, tamil, sanskrit... maths... why english?!!

we dont need to teach them freedom struggle so early... thats the past which we can forget and talk about later!
not this!

give it a thought! what we are doing is crap... crap... and seriously 100% pure u know what... :(

lets change!

goddamn serious thought

Inndiaaaaa Inndiaaaa! clap clap clap... Inndiaaaaa Inndiaaaa! clap clap clap!

**********no disclaimer**********
i want every single mofo to read this and understand what shit he/she is upto
if u cant handle this language... u will never be able to handle anything at all!
u must be happy u were not in front of me when i was typing this...
*******no disclaimer ends********

what ever you say, our country rules! there is no way that is going to change!!
after 4 months in europe, i have learnt it, the fukin hard way...
Believe me ladies and gentelmen... damen und herren... u dont know what our country is worth!

this is a warning message to all those leaving India to "pursue" "higher fukin studies" or whatever in the US or wherever the hell they are going...
just lose that thought... you are getting no where...

first... leme start with the basics...

why do we study?
to learn new things...
i'm interested in something and i wanna know more...
what else?
i like this... i like that... blah blah....
ok! time out! stop all this... and tell me where u are headed?
i wanna give the world some thing... i wanna make a goddamn difference... i dont wanna live like some normal nigger...
oh! so... u wanna be supernormal? beware... be fukin aware... u may be headed towards abnormality!!

i did a little bitta questioning about why ppl go abroad... and the reasons i got are pathetic!
if u tell me i'm goin abroad coz i wanna bone some biach n make a mark, that would be close to reality... everything else is 100% pure unadulterated bird poo...

here are some of the reasons i get! and i quote
"not enough opportunities here"
"the course i'm taking up is not available here"
"too much discrimination based on caste... and with reservation, i get nothing" - the one reason i felt sorry about
"i wanna make a difference... i will come back and do something for my country" - well u better remember the latter part... i hope the perspective of my country doesnt change!!
"prospects of a better job"
"$ dude! i can make a hell lotta money" - go for it man! u can do it!!

see what i mean!!
you are prepared to leave your country, your parents, your near and dear ones for ever!! and for such lame reasons?!!
i goddamn cant comprehend this shit!! are u drunk or something?!!

dont you think the only thing that you need to do in life, as your goddamn moral responsibility, is to keep your parents happy? so... screw thoughts of world improvement and such other "noble" endevours...
first do what u must do... you are not albi (i call einstein that, tribute to FRIENDS episode 9x20).
and the first step in keepin your parents happy is in your presence with them...

life... ur living it, not for urself... its for ur family, ur mom, ur dad, ur sis, ur bro and prolly ur unknown children and then the known ones as well... and... u dont need to make urs so glamorous... u gotta kill ur ass to make theirs glamorous... and going abroad is not the fukin way!

u wanna live happily, what better way than making the ones around u feel good about ur fukin presence?
do u know what is the most important thing u need to make that happen?? its easy... u gotta fukin be there, with them... when they need u... & making a fukin phone call from some foreign soil and saying "hi... im doing good... listen, i need to go, i got an assignment to submit in one hour" doesnt exactly qualify...

what good is it if you are 10 hours behind IST and you need two years to come back... for a short visit! coz u dont get enough holidays... and the tickets are damn expensive!
oh hero! you were on a quest for making money... what point in making it and not spending it?! damn! u people! so fukin unbelivable!

do you understand how much this decision is going to change you life?! it will never again be the same!
and for one moment, dont think its fun to live in a foreign developed country... no matter how developed the country is, you are still a foreigner there... and they know it!
do you fancy taking a shower in a 4x4 tub, with curtains drawn so that no water gets spilt on the non water proof floor?! who the makes a bathroom floor and doesnt make it water proof?! "oops! sorry, i forgot!"
a goddamn bathroom needs to be water proof! its the basic requirement!
you are not allowed a postpaid mobile connection as u dont have a SSN (social secutiry number, a number to identify ur lame ass coz numbers are easier to search than people's names) which u get only when u work. and prepaids suck as incoming calls are charged!!
plus... do u fancy working as a waiter in a restaurant? a janitor in a dorm (unless its a gals dorm, i'm not at all interested), a moote horavnu in wallmart (they dont make u horu moote... but its boxes and u operate machines)... just because they are fancy, doesnt mean u can do it! cleaning a toilet with a parke or a mop makes no goddamn diff... its the same... cleaning shit! (in the ultimate meaning of the word, tribute to beasty's 39 page essay)
to one of the guys i asked this, and he said it was a welcome break! from hectic schedule! and something new he hadn't done before!! WHAT? u think its cool to work like that? i would rather kill myself than serve food to a foreigner, who is in no way thankful for it!
i would rather be a waiter in a sea side restaurant in goa... atleast people coming there like India...
have you ever served food to your parents? cleaned your own toilets? NO... thats was not 'ur' work...
KISS MY ASS... u losers! you know what else you have never done before? and you will never be able to do ever in your life... Suck your own dicks...

and getting into a US university is a pain in the ass... and thats an understatement! the number of documents u need to produce, literally produce... "statement of purpose" as it is called! recos... if i were you, i would go there, give them the finger and come back... and would open a nair chaaya shap on hosur road...
why are you so ready to kiss ass?? that too a white american one?!

werent you the one complaining about lack of opportunities here?! you are not capable of getting a decent score good enough to get you into the course of your choice! and you were pissed with the reservations! but you are fukin ready to kiss some lilly ass giving loads of reocs, given by our people, making some cock and bull story for the "SOP" haha! i can only laff at u infedels!!

as for me... i'm content with leading a normal life... atleast i'm happy and i dont have a constant fire all over my ass... i can afford to eat Vena stores idly, drink a brahmin coffee bar by-two coffee, eat that occassional VB dosa... go for an MTR full meals, just because i can and u cant... and dont even get me started on the junk food... its divine! gobi manchurian... masala puri... paani puri... and i dont have to restrain myself from spending money... i have saved enough... its time to savour... and u guys aready there, enjoy your half cooked rasam and rice with some dipshit chips that tastes like shit... the ones yet to get elevated to that state, well think about it... its nor all that worthy u see...

23 people changed their decision and are happy to be where they are after reading this...
