My travelogue: Two faced Indians.

After CWG and Delhi bhraman, I was leaving for home. My train that was scheduled to departure from Delhi to Kanpur at 7:15 AM arrived at 6:40 PM delayed by 11:30 hours. And a normal train that takes around 6 hours from Delhi to Kanpur took more than 9 hours. Bhartiya rail apni apechhao par ek baar fir khari utarti hui! :P :D

As I left from Delhi, after two stations again it stopped for some signal clearance problem. As it started again I dialed my dad’s no to tell him that I have left for Kanpur. A guy who was standing on the platform barged in his hand from the window and snatched my phone away from my hands. It was so filmy that I could not believe it for a moment that my phone has gone. I could not do anything as the train had already started and there was all dark on the platform. But I was happy because I was safe. Sad thing was that before leaving I had recharged it with INR 333.00 + INR 43.00 which was deplorable.

Let me introspect something from this incident.

People like Indian culture, tradition, the way we live, scenic beauty, Indian food and many other things but what make them not to like us in spite of that that we are born in the same soil. I think this is the very thing that leaves a bad impression that we Indians are not liked by the white people.

Here first chapter is closed. Now in the second episode which happened when I was travelling from Kanpur to Kolkata. After much juggling I booked ticket by Rajdhani on 19th. This time luck was with me I think because there was a thing to take my entire attention throught the journey. Ohhhh Let me stop myself to waste time in falderal things and come to the original topic.

So when I woke up in the morning, I went to the washroom. I unclipped my watch to wash hands and forgot to pick up while returning. After 10 minutes or so I somehow remembered that watch is not in my hands (My body is very sensitive to phone, wallet and watch). I went to the same toilet and asked the lady which was just coming out and I got a negative reply. I waited for a guy who was in. After another 5 minutes he came out and I asked the same. He handed over the watch to me. I respected him saying Thank you from the bottom of my heart and left the place.

So these are the two incidents that came upon in “My Journey” (here the content do some Justice on my blog title). Same people but different behavior/ attitutude.

Unity in diversity or diversity in unity?? !!!

P.S. 1. Ohh i forgot to tell that I have got the same no again. please forward your nos in the same no that you have already with you as I have lost all the contacts.

P.S. 2. I have got some work in office so I might not be frequent in here for some time. :D

I watched this movie for the sake of just watching it. I didn’t have anything to do so I went for it.

There is nothing in the movie to tell except Neha Sharma. She looked stunning. She beautifully portrayed her part. I don’t like Imraan Hashmi in angry role. He should better stick to his kind of roles. For me there should be some good songs in the movie, but there wasn’t any.

The movie starts with an Indian student (Imraan Hashmi: Suraj) going to Australia to study on a fake visa. He meets with a Punjabi family there. They tell him two ways of getting an Australian passport: Either by working as a taxi driver which was a long term thing or to get a white girl. He tries to work on the second option. The girl he likes is Indian whose brother has an orthodox kind of behavior. In the past he (the girl’s brother: Arjan Bajwa) had allowed his other sister to kill herself because she was pregnant with a white man. Suraj doesn’t want to go into complex Indian Australian matter. He just wants to settle in there with a white girl. Suraj becomes aggravated when Arjan wants to kill that girl (because her brother was the cause of his sister’s death) who had saved Arjan from his cruel brother in the past and Arjan was unaware of that and in that scene an Indian kills Arjan because he has now understood the things that who is good and who is bad.

I think they were supposed to show the racial attacks on Indian students in Australia but it was like the honor killing in India. If you are not going to watch it you are not going to miss anything important. If you have a choice better watch Robot.

PS: Sad part of the movie is that Suraj didn’t get any kiss from his girl.

Emotional Atyaachaar....

A discussion among Piyush Prashant , Abhijeet Dey and me.

This was the time when we were in college. We had all the free time for gossiping, chit chatting, reprimanding and nitpicking. Sometimes these were fruitful discussions but most of the time these used to go sterile.

I correctly remember that we were in Piyush’s room after playing a tough cricket match. We all were quiet when Dey started talking about something emotionally. I used to be a sensitive chap in these matters then. Now I am trying to overcome it gradually.

Why don’t people express or share their feelings when they need someone to understand them.

These are some of the things people are reluctant to share it with others….

1. When a little kid gets less mark in school, he doesn’t tell his parents because he knows that rather than being empathized he would be spanked. I think it happens too.

2. When a friend asks about your wife then before getting an answer he might get a hard slap right on to his cheeks. (He might just want to know about her well being but you take it in different way)

3. When you lose your luggage in a journey you don’t tell this to your friend because you know that before getting any help you will first become the center of mockery (no pun intended). So you try to hide things.

4. When your love departs then instead of sharing your feelings with closed ones you start boozing and you feel alone. You try to put yourself aloof. Mate there are lots of things to worry about.

5. In college days, when we are insulted in a class (which happens most of the time) then instead of learning things that might save us next time we lock ourselves in a room and start playing with the computers (In a positive sense :D) . That sometimes makes one lunatic and we start blaming teachers.

6. When you put something emotional in Facebook, following comments would be, “Abe sahi hai na tu”, “Kya ho gaya hai tumko aajkal” or “chaat diya yaar” something like this. No. of comments here is proportional to the no. of F’s you use.

This is not our fault though. It all depends on the environment we are living in. people just don’t feel comfortable to share their hearts out. They always feel that they might be betrayed. This grows slowly on you and then sickness starts visiting you regularly and when it burst it makes huge sound.

I don’t know how you people out here find this post. I feel like posting it so I did. Now it is your choice…..
