Mausam aate hai

April 21, 2007

Zindagi Ek Aada, Ek Hunar, Ek Kamaal hai,

Jinko jeena nahi aata, vo mar jaate hai.

Kab se khamosh hoo, saakit hoo, kisi boot ki tarah,

Mausam aate hai mujhe chukar gujar jaate hai!

Sab Dharti Kagaz Karu,

Lekhan Ban Raye.

Sath Samundra Ki Mas Karu

Guru Gun Likha Na Jaye


Jo Kachu Kiya so Tum Kiya

March 28, 2007

Jo Kachu Kiya so Tum Kiya

Mein Kuch Kiya Nahi.

Kahe Koi Jo Mein Kiya,

Tum Hi The Mujh Mahi.


How do you know your blog is useful?

March 14, 2007

So many blogs, so little time! Are there evolutionary forces that will shake out the winners? If Craigsnumber can help figure out the real value of blogs, which other tools complement it? I h’ve started using Craigsnumber to get in touch with my readers so that I can connect with them, without losing my secrecy over the Internet ….

You go CN!


Divisha Gupta’s answer to Jonathan Allen on Indian Women

March 12, 2007

Original blog at – http://www.ibnlive.com/blogs/divishagupta/304/35539/indian-spinsters—a-cause-for-despair.html 

An excerpt from a Reuters report on Liz Hurley, filed by one Jonathan Allen:

 

“Indian women are commonly married off in their teens to a man of their parents’ choosing, and are a cause of despair if they are still a spinster at 30. Even the humblest family will save up to make sure their children are paraded regally around the neighbourhood by lantern-bearers and a brass band.

 

An apt read for International Women’s Day. What appalling, mindless bracketing, myopic stereotyping, West-side perspective and the inability to look beyond and rise above the “elephant-sadhu-snake-charmer” state of being!

 

Anyway, no fuming.

 

Dear Jonathan, this is for you. Please take note and do consider this a helpful “template” for all your West trend stories. Anyway, your generalisations are tantamount to saying the understated:

 

“In United States (or whatever country you come from), the concept of family – joint or nuclear – is redundant. Menfolk usually stray and wives make it a hobby of bearing children from all men of acquaintance. The children of a couple (married or otherwise) are occasionally subjected to paternity tests to establish if they have been borne of the same parentage. Before they hit their teens, majority of them take to drugs and abortions are as common as smoking up and sleeping around. Of course, the progressive and free society frowns upon anyone who remotely disagrees with its ideas of liberation.”
