You are ma GOd..You are ma WoRld

We often hear learned people saying that God is there with us, in good times and bad times…but I never saw God???

I only saw people around me..when the times were good ,they were many and when the times were bad they were only a few….and the people who were there with me in both good times as well as the bad times were those four….so these lines are dedicated to them and specially to you,my dear.

I was happy when you held my hand,

I had everyone whom I would ever want..

but the day and the way you touched ma life ,I felt as

if I was dousing in penury…

you gave me love and love and drenched me in love....

Times came and went but you stood there….cuddling me in your arms…when the times were good ,u made them better…naa…best Jand when the times were tough…and I lost faith in my own self …I was dejected and rejected but u stood there saying “I know you can do it ,it was just a bad day”…I then ,wiped those tears from my eyes and told myself..I dont know if I am capable or not but I ll do it …for u and for the faith u have in me.eventually that time passed and v came out victorious….but that was not all….the shower of your love never stopped drenching me….and suddenly you were my whole world…you became my friend,my mentor,my critique…..and my soul felt solace near you and your thoughts...…Now u may be a few kilometers away but you are there with me…in ma heart….You are ma God ..You are ma world…. Thanks for being there in ma life and blessing me with all the love that you had…May GOD BLESS yOU alwaZ

Pre Marriage blues!!!

When I descended on earth,I was like just another child ,special for my parents.They didn’t bother if I was a girl or a boy.For them ,I was their first child-a token of their love.But people around them had their eyebrows raised-“Oh!my God-a girl child”.They gave fake smiles and internally wished if I was a baby boy…..A few years passed and I got a doll to play…a naughty doll…my sweet sis.But this time it was intolerable for many.Two girls,how will you manage…ohho,but no problems you can try one more time for a boy” (as if it was so damn easy to bear a child).My parents didn’t care about the world..For them we were their two little angel-Precious!! …Years started passing,we grew up into girls but those people didn’t stop asking for a boy….This pressure is not easy to handle ,most of the families succumb to this pressure.But my parents didn’t care.We were given all kinds of freedom except for a few things like we couldn’t go out without asking our parents and we couldn’t stay out for nights…but these things were acceptable.We crafted our world in such a manner that we felt happy staying inside.Now 22 years hav passed,both of us have grown up.I am an engineer and she is becoming a doctor…everything looked good,we choose our own careers and planned accordingly for our futures…….But as they say a girl’s life isn’t a hunky dori….Those people again knocked our door and this time to suggest pa ma that girls should get married as early as possible else they don’t get a good groom.It seemed like that chak de taunt…"ladkiyan hain kya karengi zaiyda padd ke,afterall they have to get married….I gave them a befitting reply and told them that I wished to study further and I will” and why shoulnt I when guys of my age are planning their future without any tension… .But they were not going to stop,they came again and again with good and then better RISHTES.But couldn’t change my No….my parents stood firm with me but I can see that fear in their eyes….WILL SHE GET A GOOD GROOM….I dnt know when will they succumb to this pressure…and I will be caged in a place away from my parents,my loved ones…..Even writing this gives me a sinking feeling…But hey I am just 21!!!!....whats wrong with the world…I still feel like a child,won’t it be called a child marriage…huh!I do have one BRAHMASTRA-Its my constitutional right to get married whenever I wish…Noone can force me...:).HOPE IT WILL HELP ME IN THIS WAR AGAINST MARRIAGE.

Hey guys ! today I am posting something different.Recently I watched Harry Potter and the half blood prince...and after watching the movie, felt dire need of reading the last culminating novel of the series....harry potter and the deathly hallows.Though I am a "NOVEL WORM"(mind it i am not a book worm..;)),I hadnt read the novel because of lack of money..its sale price was Rs 1225.25 then.So I searched all night for a free E-book and surpisingly I found it..For me it was no less than a pandora's box...Don't worry I am a doctor's daughter,I do care for your eyes...So here I am posting the summarized novel to help u get the gist of the book, before you go out to watch the movie that is slated for a 2010 release..Have Fun ,its the best one out of the full series.

"Reservation in StatuS Quo"

Recently I was going through The Times of India and on page 3,there was a report that 6000 seats reserved for the OBC's,SC's and ST's are left vacant at delhi university and another news of a poor girl committing suicide because of not making it to the DU's cut-off list...I was not holding a magnifying lense but I could see the magnified picture very clearly.So I surveyed various internet websites for a startling revelation...In india 49% of the seats in almost every college are reserved for the backward classes.Now who are these backward classes and what percentage of these people are there in our country ..ARE THEY POOR?DO THEY ACTUALLY CONSTITUTE 49% OF THE INDIAN POPULATION?..These are a few questions that came to our mind,so let me first tell u about these BACKWARD CLASSES FIRST.

The backward classes in India constitute schedule castes ,scheduled tribes and other backward classes.
Scheduled Castes
("SC"s) and Scheduled Tribes ("ST"s) are Indian population groupings that are explicitly recognized by the Constitution of India, previously called the "depressed classes" by the British. SCs/STs together comprise over 24% of India's population, with SC at over 16% and ST over 8%.


Sachar Committee report of 2006 revealed that scheduled castes and tribes of India are not limited to the religion of Hinduism. The 61st Round Survey of the NSSO(National Sample Survey Organisation) found that almost nine-tenths of the Buddhists and one-third of the Sikhs in India belonged to the notified scheduled castes of the Constitution while one-third of the Christians belonged to the notified scheduled tribes of the Constitution.

ReligionScheduled CasteScheduled Tribe

The Central Government of India classifies some of its citizens based on their social and economic condition as Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Other Backward Class (OBC). The OBCs are entitled to 27% reservations in public sector employment and higher education. In the constitution, OBCs are described as "socially and educationally backward classes", and government is enjoined to ensure their social and educational development.
Indeed these classes are underpriveledged,they have also faced a lot of atrocities in life.They were treated as untouchables but there is one more group that has always been underpriveledged-a group whom u find begging at the roadside,working at your homes and doing all kinds of menil jobs.IT IS NO CASTE,THIS COMMUNITY HAS NO RESERVATION.Yes you guessed it right ,its a POOR.

The World Bank estimates that 456 million Indians (42% of the total Indian population) now live under the global poverty line of $1.25 per day (PPP). This means that a third of the global poor now reside in India.A 2007 report by the state-run National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganised Sector (NCEUS) found that 77% of Indians, or 836 million people, lived on less than 20 rupees (approximately USD $0.41) per day with most working in "informal labour sector with no job or social security, living in abject poverty."

The point I want to make is that there is reservation for the backward classes ...and out of these backward classes 40% live in urban areas and are financially sound..Now if we have to reserve seats for the unpriveledged then The government should also include POOR of upper castes in the reserved category.I often see people around me who are rich and come under backward classes and poor of upper castes...the former makes way to one of the best colleges in India and the latter are left jobless.
The government however feels that the Economic criterion cannot be the sole basis for determining the backward class of citizens contemplated by Article 16(4).

Here I have done a survey -the green rows show reserved seats and the red shows open...There were total 14 seats in UT CATEGORY-7 reserved and 7 open ....out of 7 reserved only 2 were occupied and out of 7 open all were occupied and stil many were left without any seat..This is RESERVATION and OUR DESTINY....My mind often asks me those 5 vacant seats could have gone to some POOR in the open category but my heart consoles and says keep working at it ,may be someone will listen to it someday.
