The Paradox of Our Times..

image

The paradox of our time in history is that..

we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
wider free-ways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, yet more problems;
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much,
smoke too much,
spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get angry too quickly,
stay up too late,
get up too tired,
read too little,
watch TV too much,
and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
If you added years to life, but not life to years.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet and the new neighbour.
We’ve conquered outer-space, but not inner-space.
We’ve done larger things, but not better things…

We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudices.
We write more, but learn less.

Lady, How old are You?

My job as Medical professional puts me in a position to go through the personal details of my patients and pose those questions, not asked, out of courtesy, generally.

Of late, I’ve been noticing, no woman patient has come to me who says her age is more than forty – though the physical appearance may be on the contrary – and, some of them are Grannies already! 😉

I wonder how that is possible?
Do they stop growing after that age is reached or it is a deliberate attempt not to accept the fact that we grow old?
And then, the bombardment of commercials about hair-dyes, skin-rejuvenating creams and anti-ageing lotions in media!
If Age is ‘Just’ a number, haven’t We forgotten the ‘Progression’ or ‘Maths’? No one is willing to accept the real age.. and accept ageing gracefully.
What to do?

But, why should I complain?
I think we are definitely a country full of people young at heart!
Oh believe me, I myself am Sixteen for last Thirty years now!!!
;)☺😜

.. To supporters of clemency to terrorists

Watched yesterday’s Newshour show on a certain ‘Now’ channel – not because I’ve suddenly realised the intellectual worth of Your-Knob’s show (I still consider him the biggest noise pollutant on prime time TV)!
It was surprising to see a certain ‘Gandhi’ give him the taste of his own medicine and hold the ‘intelligent’ debate to ransom!

I’ve read a highly-biased book written by this gentleman (i.e., Let’s Kill Gandhi) and, am aware of the views held by him so, it was a no surprise to see this ‘Later Day Saint’ pleading for clemency to a terrorist! What this gentleman was able to dish out throughout the debate was beyond logic and was harbouring in the domain of rhetoric.., dear readers, pure rhetoric!

He was able to prove the fact one can’t become civilized by just having a famous surname or lineage.., one can only fake rationalism through one’s inherited burden of ‘Gandhigiri’!

Tell you guys, most of these ‘Gandhis’ deserve to be dumped in Indian Ocean..!

3. मुख्यमंत्री के घर पर….भैंस ने छ: टाँगों वाले  बच्चे को जन्म दिया!

4. अपने हरमन प्यारे नेता को वोट डालकर….मर्दाना ताकत हासिल करें!

6. तिहाड़ जेल से छ: कैदी फरार….भारत को ओलंपिक्स में सोने के तमगे की उम्मीद!

7. क्या आपकी नज़र कमज़ोर है? आज ही आऐं….ठेका देशी शराब!

The Bengaluru School Teacher Whose YouTube School Has Got 68,000 Students

She wanted to do PhD, but because of the untimely death of her father and lack of financial support, she had to join an MNC in Bengaluru. But Roshni Mukherjee always liked teaching kids. And when she came to know from her maid that her kids feared going to their school in Tamil Nadu because of exam fear, it struck to her to start a school on YouTube that kids could access from anywhere in the world. This prompted her to launch a web-portal http://www.examfear.com and post videos for students of class 11 and 12. 

The strength of her subscribers on YouTube grew steadily and it soon crossed 50,000. She expanded the range of her videos to cater for students of class 10 and 11 also. Now, more than 3700 videos later, the number of subscribers to her channel crosses more than 68,000. 

Her videos include topics on various subjects taught on CBSE curriculum but she often takes recourse to ICSC books if she feels having missed on something. 

She has in the meantime left the job with the MNC as she started to get some income from a YouTube channel due to Google ads.Now Roshni wants to take your videos to the remotest part of India by converting her videos into regional languages like Tamil, Bangla & Telugu etc.

Don’t get hanged for a Comma…!

That freedom fighter was about to be hanged inside jail. The hangman was about to remove the thin plank of wood that was the difference between life and death for the convict. The convict was Indian, hangman was Indian but the order to hang was British government’s… yeah, this story pertains to the Indian freedom struggle era. With heavy heart the hangman went up to the lever that would have removed that plank of wood. Suddenly there was mild commotion from the entrance side.

“Wait, an important message is to be received through wire … Don’t hang him till we receive it.”

It was the British jailor. Hangman’s hands froze where they were. Everybody turned towards the jailor with an expectation… a hope that the convict might get freed… he might not get hanged at all! A moment later, an orderly came running with the wire just received. But, what was that…?! It contained just three words… “HANG NOT SPARE” Communication facility was not, what it is these days and after much deliberation jailor decided to go ahead with hanging as the meaning that he had deciphered from wire was “HANG, NOT SPARE” … off course he came to know about his folly afterwards! What to do… a freedom fighter that would have been set free lost his life just because of a ‘COMMA’!

The second story is from late Mughal period. Badshah Salamat had noticed that his Naib Wazir (Deputy Minister) was absent from his court. He asked his spies to find out the whereabouts of said Wazir. By evening the reply came. It was in Persian that used to be the script of day-to-day work those days. It said,

“او مرد امروز”

(Who Aaj Mar Gaya => He died today).” Badshah Salamat was shocked to hear that but a bigger shock was awaiting him when he came to know that the spy forgot to put “Pesh” (the accented hyphen that puts in the sound “E” at “Mar” and he actually meant to say (Woh Aajmer Gaya => He went to Aajmer).

So, you see, what a misplaced stoppage (Punctuation) can do to the meaning!

In late 17th century, people started placing a common “Shiro-Rekha” (शिरो-रेखा) on all words in a sentence in Hindi. Now, try and make meaning out of following sentence from a letter written in that period:-

“कागदहीकेकारणजानगवायो।

“KAGADHIKEKAARANJAANGAWAAYO”

What do you decipher? This question was put to a “Dhobi” (A Washer man) and he deciphered the meaning as:-

“का गदही के कारण जान गवायो।”

That is, somebody (Probably a washer man) lost his Donkey (गदही) and died due to loss to his income.

Not satisfied, people wanted to consult a “Munshi” (A Clerk, or a person with literary bent of mind) as they were approaching his house, his Milkman happened to come across. Curious, he too wanted to see the letter and after seeing he couldn’t but ridicule them for not understanding a line that was very simple and obvious. It meant, according to him:-

काग दही के कारण जान गवायो।

A crow lost life for curd… (After being hit by the stone thrown by milk-woman to scare him away from the pitcher full of curd, probably …!)

People were aghast at the explanation. Suddenly, somebody noticed the Munshi coming their way. They just ran up to him with the problem at hand. The bespectacled Munshi, adjusting his specs, announced to the crowd, “Meaning is quite obvious… Someone lost very important paper and lost his life because of the urgency associated! You see…

कागद ही के कारण जान गवायो।

Till date it is not clear why someone lost his life or, what the meaning of that sentence is…! Everybody explains it according to his wisdom, his profession, his familiarity with one or other situation. So, you too don’t lose a life (Your or someone else’s) just for a silly punctuation… A Comma!

Now something deeply philosophical: –

“A Punctuation or A Stoppage, as in literature, is very important in life too, for it gives you to time to stop for a while, look around, look back, rejuvenate yourself… and then go ahead.” Think about this.

I know what you are thinking…!

“So much for your philosophies… Huuh!”

Ok, forget it!
