PATI, PATNI aur 498A!!

“When entering into a marriage one ought to ask oneself: do you believe you are going to enjoy talking with this woman up into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory, but most of the time you are together will be devoted to conversation.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~

What are the simple tips for a great marriage?!
  • Don't Marry for Love - Marry someone ugly but whom you like talking to...
  • Make Super-Babies
  • Never Promise Everlasting Love
  • Try Serial Monogamy
  • Make It Work
  • Give Her a Baby
  • Get a Little Action On The Side
  • Let Him Suffer
  • Take a Whip to Her
  • Marry Your Best Friend

Those are not mine but from Friedrich Nietzsche as a teaser here - (details here)




"Scientists are the release vehicles for God's technical enhancements to this universe... and for beauty's, its babes! " 
~ 'Release Vehicle' Kuyyo Kuotes ~

Similar to what is said in the above KK, God was worried one day with increased consciousness projections on earth with their overloaded individual karmic residues - and he thought of a quick fix. Thus Section 498a got introduced into Indian Penal Code...

This post is not about whether 498a is right or wrong or whether God is dumb.... In spiritual context, most of the time, 'acquiring knowledge' itself constitutes the 'change' or 'growth' that we are looking for - like 'knowing' that falling from 10ft height hurts makes us: not to jump from 10ft height or put a grill around such places or may be push someone to hell!

Though nobody wants 498a at their doorstep, its always better to 'know' some 'truths' around that from below useful links available in the net:
Don't miss the details about the fight of a 498a victim through RTI in the below link...
Apart from Karma magic, try your best to KNOW people in the system to have some protection in case of false 498a-s and also KNOW the person in your bedroom and their exteeeeeeeended family as a probable prevention...

Some Random Kuyyo Kuotes
  • " Every business is a gamble. Some only gives you a false feeling of control like marriage! "
  • " Everything we do in life is the preparation for death. Marriage is an exception! "
  • " Most of the marriages happen out of existential vacuum! "
  • " Behind every violence, there will be a relationship... of love, hate or marriage! "
  • " Marriage is a risky business... new partner, few plans, no vision and lot of expectations! "
  • " There is nothing like 'the best time' for marriage and death... you only have a choice to skip the first one! "

ANNA-lysing Corruption!

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

- JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
- LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
- EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.

if you are wondering what it is - check.








. ~o~ .

As I am writing this, a local news channel is reporting about RTO people working on sunday too, to renew mostly some questionable DLs and later escaping from the office in fear of being exposed to the media...

thats just one instance of the corruption...

at the same time, at most of the other places across the country and around the world there is one more voice for a move, a step ahead to reduce such instances of corruption affecting the common man directly or indirectly...

now...
the question is not whether anna is right or the present govt is...
the question is not whether jan lokpal bill is correct or govt lokpal bill is...
the question is not whether the people on streets are 'provided' by political parties/foreign hands or 'WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA' of our constitution...

the question is, how much belief we have in our political 'resources'?
the question is, do we believe in the first step of change towards anti-corruption?
the question is, are we trusting in the bigger voice against the establishment to voice our concerns?

Nandan Nilekani from the corporate world joins the government in the ambitious UID project and says that he believes in the intention of the government and the politicians for bringing corruption down - where as the local media in Mysore from his earlier corporate hometown does a sting operation in illegally getting a valid UID card in Nandan Nilekani's name along with his photo... questioning the basic idea of UNIQUE in UID itself...

Is everyone against corruption? maybe-
Does that mean no-one will indulge in corruption given the opportunity for corruption with a trust in the system that they won't be punished? maynotbe-

If everyone is divinely pure, we would be in a paradise and most likely never born again with a zero karma carryover... but this is a world of karma - and obviously some will do good with intentions and others with the fear of punishment... and hence we do need 'policing'... not just to bring up kids but even to cleanse the system... like the idea of 'god' from fear perspective...

  • Will policing or a lokpal solve the problem?
  • In the absence of a perfect solution, is one step towards that cleansing bad?
  • When the efforts are demoralizing from the establishment, is a louder voice from some section of the civil society for that one step, however imperfect bad?
  • In the absence of Lokayukta, was it possible for the CM of Karnataka to step down, scams being exposed, former CM going into a shell, a minister and a corporator going to jail?
  • Lokayukta might not be a perfect solution, but didn't it create that god-fear-mood in helping with a single step towards corruption-free world?

Perfect solution may not be in a single step, but is it bad to voice for a perfect solution to trigger those single steps towards perfection? When all the representatives are failing to represent people's voice as politics is becoming a business, Is voicing against a corrupt government to see a wave of change, undemocratic?

Is Right to Information Act (RTI) one of those better step towards that perfection? Did it happen in one step by just a government's will without public's voice and demand?



the question is not about whether jan lokpal bill is better? its about the intentions, initiatives and insults by the current 'power' house at the center... If the politicians had the will, it shouldn't have waited since 1968 to pass this bill - If the current govt had the will, it wouldn't have suggested a bill which catches almost none under corruption...

to prove your good-ness is a continuous process...
to prove your bad-ness is a single step process... you just need one proof.
  • PM addressing the people's sentiment as foreign-hand
  • party's spokesperson alleging anna hajare even without any respectful words when his another infamous colleague uses words like 'kasabji', 'osamaji'...
  • govt arresting and putting the leader in tihar jail even before starting a peace protest where as allowing a continuous agitation by mamata in west bengal, and a gathering of some kashmiri separatists talking about dividing india in delhi...

Today I am ashamed to have this kind of a party and this kind of government led by that kind of a party to represent us...
did I exercise my vote?
did I contribute in choosing this government?
are not the questions...

If we have elected the government and if we are not happy, can't we question it? If we want a change in the political system, is joining the politics the only solution - in which case what If I want a change in health system, political system, administrative system, defense system?

I can't play every role in the system. I have the right to ask for a change and I guess thats the right most people are exercising now and I hope that the collective karma of the people swings one step towards the positive side...

NANDALALA b/w KAMINEY and MYNAA!


Though delayed by more than a year, finally got a chance to watch Vishal Bharadwaj's Kaminey. Nothing much in the content of the story, but Vishal succeeds in making the plot interesting with his music and visual compositions and also in giving a new 'couple' to Bollywood...



Inspired from a Japanese movie plot, Mysskin again proves his strength in handling the emotions and in well choreographed and interesting shot takings in his latest movie Nandalala.


Though he looks fine with his acting skills trying it out for the first time, he fails in coming up with a gripping story. Good visuals and the emotional peaks of the movie may not change its box office results, but it's Ilayaraja who proves why he is the best, with some great background score and songs.








Finally its Prabu Solomon who walks away with a block buster, which I guess mostly after a decade of him working as an independent director. Again not a strong story line, but Mynaa with the main characters and its refreshing surroundings wins in the end with an emotionally touching climax.














In the memory of Mynaa...

SUPERSTAR - STAR = ...

Directs a block buster...

10+ years away from full time movie direction...
Comes back again with another block buster, in a new dimension...

Thats the ability of a genius and
his name is James Cameron and the movies are Titanic in 2D and Avatar in 3D.











Though its not fair and logical to compare the two film makers, the usual question that the recent hype asks is, is UPPI really back with a block buster after 10 years of direction break (or busy acting career)? My personal opinion and wish after watching the 'title less' film is... to time travel a year back and request him not to direct the 'title less' film... I got a feeling that he actually time traveled 10 years ahead from 2000 and made this 'title less' film with the same old thinking, knowledge and the mind.

Though I was aware that I can't expect an extraordinary movie this time... I was atleast expecting a decent entertainer, knowing most of his abilities. But it was really disappointing. In my previous post I was wishing them success. But now I can only pray...
