The restaurant

This is a puzzle puzzling me since yesterday. One of my friends asked me to help out for a farewell party she and her friend were wishing to give someone in a restaurant. The plan was to eat some stuff and chat away all through the noon and evening. Poor restro ppl. They would have to bear this clan half a day while they wont order anything amounting to a hefty bill. (i mean generally non veg and alcohols amount to a good bill). There are ppl who are getting late and finish their meal in no time and rush out of the restro but this group wud not make a move unless thrown out 😉

If I could reverse the whole thing! I feel this system is fully wrong. When we go to dine out, we use the services (for which we pay a tip), we use food (for which we pay bill) and we use space (FREEEEE!!!!)

Now why is this? A restaurant should charge us for space. This is very logical but they never do. They could make the food charges nominal or a bit less and put the space charges on which will obviously multiply with the time you spend eating.  This will also drive out ppl like the above-mentioned and we wont see any waiting ques as we at times encounter outside a restaurant.

PLZ SUPREME COURT, LET US CELEBRATE!

After a long time now, it seems I, my friends, my relatives and every Indian might get justice. The Supreme court stayed the reservation(quota) yesterday.

First, let me describe quota or reservation system to you-

The government decided to provide 27% reservation to mediocre or lower caste people. this means that 27% seats in any govt college or office will be occupied by lower castes, even if they fail the exams! Not only this, these ppl will be promoted more often than general category people.

Its crystal clear that this step was taken by politicians only to cement their political bases as mediocre castes constitute majority of India. Many of these are rich and can afford quality education but are still getting benefits of reservation policy. The reservation could be on basis of economic grounds. Why is it on caste basis? This has sparked up caste differences. Even I hate lower caste ppl now as they are getting jobs in all medical institutions.  They will ruin the health of our country. they are taking away my seat, our seats.

The Supreme court has stayed this policy and has asked for more reliable data. If the govt provides that, reservation policy will continue. If it fails to provide enough data, then its a bye-bye reservation. I pray for the latter. LET US CELEBRATE. Amen, I concurr reverentailly.

A good news and a bad one…….

First take on the bad one- India kicked out of the world cup. But it ain’t as bad as people here are posing. At the end of the day, its just a game. (its a game when we lose but its passion, its our life, our religion when we win). So right now, its just a game. I heard in the news that people broke Dhoni’s house. lol. Last time, they had painted Mohommad Kaif’s house completely black. lol again. This doesn’t seem morally right but sure is fun. None gets hurt but still the agitation is felt. Now, Pakistan and India are in league. ha ha ha. both are out. One more interesting news, people have setup a tent outside Mumbai International airport. They are waiting for the cricketers to get the heck  out of ’em. Lets see their fate.

Here’s the good news now- My Board exams are over. PARTY TIME!!!!! Well, my definition of party is different from usual one. Me and my friends don’t need mocktails, cuisines, discos. All we need is a football or a bat n ball. We play cricket or soccer whole day and eat in the market when hungry. We always get some team to play against us. And we’ve never lost in soccer but always lose in cricket. Doesn’t it reflect our national cricket team?

The cricket team might have lost but the promoters never fail! At once, there were songs, shirts, serials, movies and everything. People made fortunes in an instant. On a lighter note, the children of cricketers would be very happy as their daddys are coming home. 🙂

WordPress vs Blogger

The themes of wordpress are fantastic and that’s what attracted me to it. I shifted my blog from Blogger to wordpress precisely because of the themes. The blogger themes are mundane and dull. After the transition, I realized that blogger was better in some aspects or say many.

 

One plus point of WordPress.com is the ability to customize the way the date is displayed. Though Blogger gives you a lot of options to do so and is easier to use, WordPress.com lets you use the PHP Date format.

 

The domain “.wordpress” might sound better than “.blogspot” but this isn’t enough for sacrificing the freedoms one gets in blogger. For a web-designer, blogger would seem heavenly and wordpress-exactly contrary to this. The bigget bug I find here this that I need to purchase CSS to edit the javascript of my blog. Huh! If I can’t edit it, how the hell is it MY blog? The name and articles are mine but the blog is not. Blogger provides you with javascript which can be fully edited. It improves your web-designing skills. Most importantly, You are on the driving seat of your blog and your blog seems to be truly yours.

If wordpress starts providing the so called “CSS” for free, they can surely be the most popular blogging service in the world. WordPress people, are you listening? Even if you are, I don’t think you’ll implement this. Great minds think alike or…………….

 

I’m sure, it’s the other half of the equation you all will agree to.

GOD EXISTS! Here’s why—-

I found thus on a blog essjee , while clicking the next blog button. Its awesome. Here it is—-

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.

As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.

They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: “I don’t believe that God exists.”

Why do you say that?“asked the customer.

“Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist.

Tell me, if God exists,would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine loving a God who would allow all of these things.”

The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.

The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and un-kept.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: “You know what? Barbers do not exist.”

How can you say that?“asked the surprised barber. “I am here, and I am a barber.And I just worked on you!”

“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me.”

Exactly !”- affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! What happens, is, people don’t go to Him and do not look for Him. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

Does GOD exist?

A Misc post

I’ll start this with a thing I read in reader’s digest some 8 years back. I remember it very faintly but its awesome. Here it goes-

“If me and you have 1 apple each and you give me your apple and I give you mine, we will still have 1 apple each, BUT if me and you have a thought and you give me your thought and I give you mine, we both will have 2 thoughts each”

wasnt it cool? Anyways, India’s worldcup blues have started. Boy! How the heck they lost to Bangladesh?! But the day wasn’t as bad. 1 good news too. ha ha. Pakistan lost to Ireland. yahooooooooo.

Well, thats not very good. the minnows are blasting experienced teams. I truly want either India or one of the minnows to win the world cup. anyway, Best of luck to the men in blue…….

GET THE WORLD CUP

Fooling Christians? Are they?!

I saw this thing on GOD TV while browsing the channels , it left me speechless! Rory and Wendy, who are the founders of this so called”Missions week” are the main ones behind this. “Missions week” is a week announced by GOD TV people in which people are to contribute money to them which, as they promise, God will return them with much more. People are giving money to help GOD TV expand their business, their channel. The way they brain-washed the viewers was cool. Even I believed their words for a while until I switched off the TV and gave it a rational thought!!!

So, here is how they did it—-

A man who was some preist or maybe father of a church had come and said that “GOD had some special days like Easter, Passover, etc. and people should never stand empty-handed in front of GOD on passover. So, the passover is approaching and if you will give a passover offering to GOD of $1 million, he will return you $10 million.

GOD said in Bible and exodus that if you build an Altar, I will meet you there, give you my name there and Bless you there. So, here I am building an Altar. GOD will tell me secrets from heaven here. GOD says, If you stand before me with an offering I will bless you in 7 ways–

1. I’ll dispatch an angel which will live with you for 1 year and guide you.

2. I’ll take care of your enemies.

3. I’ll bless you with bread and water.

4. I’ll take sickness away from you.

5. I’ll extend your life.

6. i’ll increase your inheritance.

7. I dun remember the 7th one, srry, that GOD TV guy said something here but i have forgotten.

Now you’ll say, How can I touch this Altar? I want the 7 blessings. Plz tell me. wait, you can! If you have a phone, lay your hands on it. Dial the number on your screens. Have an agreement with God that GOD, I WILL GIVE $100 A MONTH TO GOD TV. GIVE ME MY ANGEL. LET ME BE BLESSED! U will connect to the operator who will bring your pledge in the form of a print out here and I will keep that on the altar.

You don’t believe me! You must be thinking this is not true. But this is. There was a lady in my church in Chicago. She was Suffering from Financial crisis. She gave me all her $77 on passover to offer it to God. Next day she got a call from a lawyer that one of her relatives had died in Arizona and she had inherrited $450,000. She called me and said that she was BLESSED. The angel God had dispatched did it.

So, u’ll also be blessed. Just make your pledge and send us the money.”

This guy also quoted a zillion examples from Bible and exodus. He was speaking in a very influencial way. Anyone could be brain-washed. All the 20 phone operators were busy throughout. People were sending HUGE AMOUNTS from all over the world!

I don’t know if this was right or wrong. Was he fooling Christians or not? I can’t say! Your opinions are required. Do pour in your views. ADIOS.

SLAYER slayered! Coz we are Indians!

Hi, we are Indians! Come, call us dumb, stupid, we won’t mind. We ourselves say ill things about Biharis, haryanvis, bengalis or any other, for that matter. We crack jokes potraying Sardars as stupid people even on national television. We call our government irresponsible, corrupt and our police dishonest. Its all well.

BUT, the minute you say a word about our religion, we will kill you! The thing you say might be rational, might not be rational, but who cares! we won’t even listen to you but start shouting and then you have it. you are gone buddy. Your time’s up.

As an Indian, I have seen numerous instances where people have acted this way. How do we explain this attitude? Despite of being educated, we show such intollerance. Its not that all are like this but majority are, say 90%.

There was this Danish cartoonist who made a controversial cartoon. Muslims in India started shouting slogans, they took to streets demanding the cartoonist dead. I bet they hadn’t even seen the cartoon. Neither had I. So, I don’t know whether it was that outrageous but even these protestors hadn’t. This is just one case, every religious community in India behaves the same way.

There’s this band “SLAYER” which has some anti-christian songs. its been a big hit elsewhere but it was banned in India as Christians went up to the minority commision to get it banned.

Why do we indians behave this way? Its time we grew above such things. A better alternate would be to ask the person responsible for a reason of his controversial views. we just want to kill everyone who goes against our beliefs, HUH, and we say that we are a democracy!!!!!!!!!!

Slayer, the rock/metal band

72 virgins! what do you say?

I came to know about this, that terrorist leaders tell millitants that if they die while conducting terror attacks or suicide missions, god promises them 72 virgins in heaven. Now, practically speaking, a rational person can’t believe this. the reason being self explanatory. This post is not to question whether there are 72 virgins or not. the point i wanna highlight here is the convincing power, intelligence or whatever you may call it, of the terrorist leaders. How the heck are they able to convince humans that such a thing will happen? they convince them to such an extent that millitants lay their lives!!!

If someone is so talented, just an advice i wanna give you. Listen buddy, You can do wonders with the talent you have. Why waste it to kill people? Convince our government to be honest, tell police to catch ONLY criminals and most importantly-tell our teachers not to give us homework. ARE YOU LISTENING?

Ha ha ha
