November 2008


We tend to do some things without realizing that we are. Its our nature….but where do we get it from?

Regional? …How come always Chinese are seen as too picky and cheesesparing. Today morning a cab driver went berserk over a toll question.

Gender based?….Women are suppose to be emotional. I will not blame Anitson. The thought of your husband flirting with someone else is so much of a hurt, having to know for sure that he cheated is something I cannot imagine. I don’t think I ever want to watch a Jolie or Brad movie again.

Culture Based?….Indian women tend to work hard and expect appreciation for it. We cannot stop doing either of it.1357154535_94eefec289

Not sure where other things come from like some people talk too much, some crib over everything. I am more interested in knowing about few like some people can really think of out-of-the-box ideas, some can have fun in every situation.

Btw Profession based?….Software engineers always wish everything was on the net. 🙂

Yes, they do

A good example of it is when Bombay was fighting with terriosts on November 26 2008, one man someone name Datta, said to CNN reportor that Mumbai is “resilient” and there onwards that word was said again and again. Why it got noticed was that before this happened (use of word Resilient ), everyone was just using negative words and I was feeling bad about the image we are leaving of India.

Another set of shocking words that I heard but stuck me later was “Terrorist from Kashmir occupied by India……..”. Hey Kashmir is part of India. We don’t need to occupy what belongs to us.

Lets see how things unfold in hours to come but people words do matter so lets think before..

So it took Steve McCurry & National geographic reporters a couple of months and some Pakistani contacts to find the famous green eyed Afgan Girl who Steve had photographed 17 years ago.

What i wonder is how come US secret service/army/airforce/CIA and other organizations have still not been able to find one Osma Bin Laden 😕

Lets see: Finding a girl should be more difficult considering the social norms that restrict girls to show their face to only their family. Osama am sure does not have that advantage.

Aparantly NatGeo used a Pakistani senior new editor and village elders to find this girl. U.S. and Pakistan are allies, (right?) so how come they did not get that advantage.

Irony is that the Senior News Editor was introduced in the programme as one of the few who have interviewed Mr. Laden himself…hmmm so thats a credential!

Nice to see atleast someone can find exactly what they were looking for.
