Holi-Day


Holi-Day


In My City


Heyy Guys !!

I’m back again with my artwork. I wanna tell y’all something. Few days ago, I’ve seen a music video calledIn My City by model-turn-actress-turn-singer Priyanka Chopra featuring Black Eyed Peas‘ singer Will.i.Am. In my opinion, the music is really terrible just because it is modern commercial sellout, that same old shitty work with autotune vocals and party beats. Moreover, its music video is even more terrible, with worst choreography and background scene. The annoying part of this video is that she bragged a lot of things about her partying life in her city (which was supposed to be her home town – Bareilly or working town- Mumbai, but the whole video shoot happened to appear somewhere in Los Angeles). Facepalm.

Just like Ashley Tisdale, she is also nice actress (won’t say the best actress ever :P), but not really a good singer. Moreover, she sold herself out with this annoying song without even showing her real roots. But hardly this commercial Entertainment Industry and the butthurt Priyanka Chopra Fan base (I prefer calling such people as Fantards 😛) gonna understand the fact.

The main agenda of above mentioned story is to show how people get away from their roots and pretend to be someone else, just to impress the modern crowd. I could go on more with other examples, but would tell that some other day.

Anyways coming back to my art topic. After getting pissed with that annoying and delusional music video, I’ve checked down my art archives searching relevant to my roots in my city – Delhi.

Well !! The artwork which I’m going to showcase, I’ve made quite a year while practicing for my very 1st Graffiti Battle in Hip-Hop Jam. I’ve made the cartoon sketches of various attractions of Delhi – Red Fort, Lots Temple, Jantar Mantar, Qutab Minar, India Gate and Delhi Metro, in the background and a graffiti guy (actually me :P) spraying a Graffiti art “Delhi” on the wall, in the foreground with the help blue ball-point pen.

Now since y’all know about my passion and obsession with Graffiti and my residence in Delhi.
So then fellas, take a look on the artwork.

My City Delhi

Well !! This is my City and these are my roots. I love keeping them real, unlike pretending like any crazy Bollywood Actress posing to be a professional singer.

ROOTS !! BLOODY ROOTS !!

Hopefully, y’all have like this piece of work and don’t forget to post you reviews.

The Iron “Dishoom” Fist


Heyy Guys !!

This past Week our College celebrated The Annual Inter-College Cultural Festival called “Moksha” with Bollywood Theme, dedicating a tribute to 100 Years of Indian Cinema.

Besides, I have decided to give a little tribute to this Bollywood Achievement in my blog. To get started with, I have simply drawn a pencil cartoon sketching of a Right Hand Fist punching out from the paper with Dishoom (Typical Bollywood) sound. 😛

Take a look on the artwork, fellas.

The Iron Dishoom Fist

The Iron Dishoom Fist

Although I am not Crazy Bollywood Fan (especially these days), but I really like some cliches and stereotypes which makes the movie funny and entertaining. Still there are many classic and cult Bollywood Movies which I would like to watch many times. The List is too long, I won’t bore you.

Overall in a nutshell, It’s all about

Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment 😉

We ain’t so passionate for something.
We are just showing off in everything.

Is this the way
to try to be like a Boss ?

Why such questions
are still hovering in my mind ?
Why such voices don’t
pass through their heads
while committing any crime ?
Shredding the Glory,
Losing every single Morality,
Raising the Cruelty and,
Without any Epiphany
to every Extent.
Spoiling the Dignity,
Retaining the Irresponsibility,
Breaking the Unity,
Degrading the Society and,
Killing the Humanity
until it’s all Extinct.
Filled with
The Corrupts,
The Hypocrites,
and above all
The Rapist minds.
Not a single place
to run away from them,
Not even a single place
to Hide.

Is this the place
am I supposed to live ?
Is this the New philosophy
should I believe ?
Is this the way
to survive in Nation ?
Is this the way
to claim yourself
an honorable citizen ?
Is this the way
to call yourself
a true human ?

The questions will
keep on coming
until they blow up
your tiny head,
It’s High Time fellas
Really need some
Action and Aggression instead.
Raise your
Voices and Fists
for the Revolution,
Don’t sit and talk
like a douchebag
in a Cafe Coffee Day,
Keep on fighting
until you die hard,
even if we’ve survived
from that 2012 doomsday.

———————————————–————————–

On a Rowdy Note,
To all those mean cunts,
and those cowardly assholes,
F**K YOU !!!!
I won’t do what you tell me.
F**K YOU !!!!
I won’t do what you preach me.
F**K YOU !!!!
I would tell and preach what it should it be.
F**K YOU !!!!
I would kick your ass for the sake of humanity.

Rajni Anna Day

Rajni Anna Day


Happy Diwali


Whenever we talk of Diwali festival the first think that comes to our mind is when Diwali is celebrated or the date of the festival. Normally according to the Hindu calendar the festival of Diwali, which is celebration of truth and light is celebrated on a nation-wide scale on Amavasya, the 15th day of the dark fortnight of the Hindu month of Ashwin (Aasho), which is usually the month of October or November every year.

Diwali Celebration

Diwali is regarded as one of the most important festival of the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated across the nation with great pomp and excitement. The festival is mainly associated with lights as it is called the festival of light. On the day of the festival diyas (small clay lamps) are lit in everybody’s home irrespective of their social status. The name Diwali signifies ‘rows of lighted lamps’. Diwali is a five-day festival, beginning on the 15th day of the Hindu calendar month of Kartika (Ashwin). By the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls in October or November. Diwali marks the beginning of the Hindu and Gujarati New Year and is celebrated with the lighting of lamps and candles, and lots of fireworks. People decorate their home with beautiful diyas and making rangoli pattern in the courtyard and in front of the gate. They put flowers and mango leaves on their doors and windows. Diyas and candles are placed on rooftops, rooms, and kitchen and even in the bathrooms. On this day, people worship Lord Ganesha, the foremost of all Hindu Gods and Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity. It is time to exchange gifts and sweets with friends, relatives and neighbors.

Due to India‘s varied cultural diversity there are many manifestations of the Diwali festival. The festival begins with Dhanteras, a day set aside to worship the goddess of prosperity, Goddess Lakshmi. On this day, homes are cleaned and paintings are done. There are various legends associated with the celebration of Diwali. But people mostly associate the celebration with the legend of Lord Ram returning to his kingdom of Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile and defeating Ravana, the demon king. In Bengal, the celebration is marked with the worship of Goddess Kali. People celebrate Kali puja with great fervor and enthusiasm. Joy and festivity reins every corner of the nation during the Diwali season. Diwali festival is the one Hindu festival that unites the whole of India. The exchange of sweets and the explosion of fireworks customarily accompany the celebration of the festival. Diwali is an occasion for cheerfulness and togetherness. This is that time of the year when people of all age and all class take part in its celebration.

History

India is considered to be the land of festivals. And each of the festivals, which are celebrated here, has a reason or significance behind its celebration. Diwali the festival of light is also not an exception. It is celebrated across the country with lots of fervor and fun. Though the way it is celebrated differs from region to region according to the traditions and culture of that state but the reason behind its celebration remains same. The festival is celebrated by all there is no cast or age bar. The festival brings light in everybody’s life. The festival symbolizes unity in diversity as every state celebrates it in its own special way. If we try to look for the origin of the festival we have to refer to history. And history tells us that the festival is celebrated mainly for four days commences on Aswayuja Bahula Chaturdasi and concludes on Kartika Shudda Vijiya. And each day has a significance and history behind its celebration. The first day of the festival Naraka Chaturdasi marks the killing of the demon king Naraka by Lord Krishna and his wife Satyabhama.

Lord Rama

The second day is Amavasya and according to the legends Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth, was incarnated on the new moon day (amaavasyaa) of the Kartik month during the churning of the ocean (samudra-manthan), hence the association of Diwali with Lakshmi. From that day she is worshipped as the symbol of wealth and prosperity. It is also said that on this very day Lord Vishnu rescued Goddess Lakshmi from the prison of Demon king bali and for that reason Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on the day of Diwali. The third day is “Kartika Shudda Padyami.” On this day Bali would come out of Pathala Loka and rule Bhuloka as per the boon given by Lord Vishnu. Hence, it is also known as “Bali Padyami“. The fourth day is referred to as “Yama Dvitiya.” On this day, sisters invite their brothers to their homes. Whereas according to legends it is also said that Lord Rama returned from exile to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile. To commemorate his return to Ayodhya, his subjects illuminated the kingdom and burst crackers. Goddess Kali is also worshipped during this time.

Traditions

The literal meaning of Deepavali in Sanskrit is ‘a row of lamps.’ That’s why Diwali is called the festival of lights. As we all celebrate it by lighting of diyas in our home. It is a tradition that is popular in most regions of the country. Even today in this modern world it projects the rich and glorious past of our country and teaches us to uphold the true values of life. Every festival of India has such glorious and rich traditions that are portrayed through its celebration. Diwali is associated with many customs and traditions. Like the tradition of rangoli, tradition of burning crackers, tradition of lights, tradition of Diwali pujas and Diwali gifts Tradition. One of the most curious customs, which characterizes this festival of Diwali, is the indulgence of gambling, especially on a large scale in north India. Rangoli is a traditional Hindu folk art; it is a kind of designs generally created on a floor on special festive occasions. The origin of this art can be traced to the Puranas (works on Hindu mythology). It is said that the tradition of rangoli originated in Maharastra and slowly disseminated to other parts of India. It gives a colorful look to the festival celebration.

Diwali Rangoli

The festival of Diwali remind us of the brilliant display of colorful fireworks which explode in the dark nights. The cities are famous for these. It is an unique part of Diwali celebration. Now it has become an inseparable part of Diwali festival. Exchange of gifts is another unique feature of Diwali celebration. Diwali encourage people to gather and socialize with friends and family, exchange gifts and share home-cooked meals. The diwali gifts exchanged on this occasion reflect happiness, love and joy. Lighting of diyas is also an important part of Diwali celebration. Lighting diyas brings divine brightness and joy with the hope of finding light in darkness, achieving knowledge where there is ignorance and spreading love where there is hatred. It symbolizes the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. Diwali is also associated with pujas of different Gods. There are many legends and religious accounts to it. Lights and diyas are lit to signifying the driving away of darkness and ignorance, as well as the awakening of the light within us. That’s why the festival of Diwali is a true portrayal of the rich cultural and traditional values and customs of India.

Corruption – A Symptom Not A Disease


Originally Posted in Easy To Act‘s Blog Post

Corruption is not the ultimate problem but the result of problem, the issues is more than just a corruption, it is about the output of weak governance and policies and it will only end when we solve the root of the problem.”

Corruption is mismanagement of Power And Governance at every level and if we want to defeat corruption then the transformation of governance is the only option and which will happen when we seriously consider the option of Political Change ; Means the end of era of main stream political parties & their low thinking .”

When We See our country then we find that the Corruption, visible accountable reason for every negative thing in our country .But Corruption is not the problem, there is a huge problem and that is the Approach and willingness of people on highest level toward National Interest .We can call them political People.

If We take Corruption , then the Corruption which is in front of us , is more than a corruption , it is Marketing of Black Money on Highest level. When Corruption is done by Governments then the corruption will not remain the Simple Corruption and any law can not take it down except people directly will not take action using power of democracy, by voting & by freedom of expression.

If we examine difficult issues in our country then population, Social Suffering, Economical crisis Unemployment, hard life and Human development issues are most serious issues .And Unemployment is the issues which is probably the reason of Poverty in Our Country.

Now if we go in depth of Unemployment issue then what is the percentage of Corruption responsible for Unemployment?? If someone doesn’t have work and he ready to pay money to get a job or work then generally the start of Corruption at society level is started. Now if we eliminate this process of corruption at that level then do we really end the problem???

At last Person don’t have a job .But Actually People thinks that if corruption end then some how it help to generate more jobs. But think deeply is that so??? Is that circle of Generating job is related to directly corruption or weak polices because the number of jobs are the same and also given to people of country.

There is not a problem of money in government, it is all about bad management and ineffective policies which we ignored and blame corruption for every single problem.

Weather it in that case corruption is cause or not, but at the end people doesn’t have the job.

Suppose 1000 jobs are there from the government side and 20000 people are there who wants that job .If Corruption is there then may be 500 or more job sold to people .But if there is no corruption then full 1000 job actually given to the eligible person. But at last 19000 people still without job!!!!!!
Most of the people used Corruption as their savior to reduce difficulties. Life is very tough and people want to save their time and hard work and they preferred to give money because they want work at time.

No doubt corruption is very major important issue but not the only reason of our country situation.

Now days Opposition parties in any state or in central used Corruption as the weapon to attack to the Government .Now the Politician not worry to use Corruption Word in their speech weather they himself part of corruption .

Corruption is now everywhere, in physical world and in words too.

Main Problem of Corruption is that Money come form center to state and state to local authority and in between that money lost the quantity.

And it is going on and on.

And the Worst thing is that every single Political Party or Politician and every Single Bureaucrat know that the corruption is over there and he/she either involve or ignore but about the action to end it.

Involved or ignore, two options in the hand of People who work at High Authority as well as people.

My Point is that The Willingness of Political Party to end Corruption is Zero because if they act then they will through out from the governance and some one else will come in power .

So No Political Party and Politician actually want to end the corruption at High level.

But Why???

And the answer is they are wrong people and just want to stay in power and that’s all.

So weather the corruption is their or not they are not going to give their best to help and support people.

Let’s bring some scenario in discussion.

Suppose If You are MP or MLA and you are in fear of judiciary or Law but at the same time you don’t have personal interest to work for people then what will be the out put ??

And Out Put is unsatisfactory. He/She will do nothing.

But If You are MP and MLA And you have pressure from your higher authority to do well for people then there must some possibility then you could do some better things for people and for state or for city .

And at last if you are MP and MLA And you are personally want to help and support the people and want to work for them then he/she will do the best to do so and that what we need if we really want to become developed in real manner .

And the harsh thing is that it is not going to happen if don’t focus to change political system or era .May be we will bring Lokpal Bill or else but to it can not bring the number two and three case into today governments.

If Some how Corruption is gone out from the system then the governing system & process will remain the same , in same manner , same people with same old tactics where if Political party in Center then all the time it is worry to continue the term and how establish the government in state And When party in state government then party concern how they can bend center party according to them and how they can send their politician MP in the Parliament so they can easily be the part of collation Government .

When there is no money or corruption involve then there is always the Drug of Power which is more dangerous then corruption or money .Everybody wants to be in power at any how weather the corruption is over or not but they want to be there at any how.

And the fact is that our country is full with these kind of people whose only concern is to be in Power or part of power at any cost and the serious thing is that they are in power and in politics in present Scenario and no hope that in future that they will get out from the governance until people will not take step towards new political era.

So Weather the Corruption is over there or not if People who are in authority are not the right people then there are no way that we can hope for Strong Future.

“Understand that End of the corruption will not end everything and Corruption will never end under the Present Political Environment. We Must Think About Heavy Political Change; bring the new Political Era based on nationalism.”

Who will take care of our Nation??? In Tunisia , Egypt , Algeria , Yemen and Libya people have Specific target their Leader(dictator) of the country who are dictating from several decades and people have clear target or specific demand that is “ The Democracy & Freedom & Reform “ .

The People of Arab wants democracy and power to elect the leader of country with out the fear and want the freedom of speech in the hope that may be these things will bring the new era in their country.

But what about us , we are already in democracy, we elect these leaders , we have freedom of speech and we have the system written upto date system and still we are not satisfied the who is responsible ??

And the reason is not Corruption, the reason is not Population or else the only reason is the leadership which allowed the wrong people to lead the country and our Political System is Reason Which Bring Our Constitution in Weak State.

We are unlucky that We don’t have any Husn Mubarak , Ben Ali or Gaddafi so that we can defeat them and enter in new era . We have the Whole Constitution and Political System to fight and to defeat if we really want to enter in new era.

Without reshaping the Politics and Political Sytem , We never ever Get the Future what we imagine.

“THE STRONG AND PROSPEROUS COUNTRY”

So End Corruption is Just A First Step Because Ultimate Goal is To Establish The System , a Political System which able to bring right people at higher level to lead our Country and to help the shape the future .

And Right Now No Body is concerned about it and if the Scams did not come then no body is even thinking about corruption. We always failed to catch the root of problem and again doing the same because we think just A corruption is the Reason. But Corruption is just a part of failure of our Government and System: “THE CONSTITUTION “

Ultimate Enemy is Political System & leadership because it brings the wrong people to lead our country and prevent right people to do better for the country.

We can only defeat them by accepting our faults and giving new thinking a chance in politics.

Don’t ignore Politics fault in the name of corruption because it is the root of the failure.

Be Political and Support the Right People in Politics which we find when we leave the old main stream political era and choose to support the new people in politics with right approach.

Stop telling lie to ourselves and accept our fault and change the attitude and then plan to end the era of failure of Politics.

India Need Revolution and if we and you oppose the wrong political people without fear of anything, not blood or not death, then we will able to bring Revolution in Our Country.

Oppose People who are wrong and Support Right People without Hesitation without any fear. Then The Real Revolution Will Come.

People, Stop Playing double game – Decide the Side, Wrong or Right.

जय हिन्द जय भारत

The Power of Modern Youth


This article was originally Posted as
Youth Is Directionless But Not Irresponsible..” by ”‘s Blog

*************************************************************************

Usually I don’t write down personal incidents on my blog but series of confrontations with a few questioning minds made me to express my views through an incident that happened with me two days back. On friday morning, me and my classmates were eagerly waiting for our advertising class which is taken by a very experienced and charismatic person. For his introduction, I would just like to mention that he headed Public Relation Society of India (Delhi Chapter) and this is just a feather in his cap.

He started off the class with enormous energy as he usually does discussing the ‘publics in public relation’.While explaining further he cited the example of ‘Anna Hazare Movement’ and his first statement was-“This movement is going to die off, nothing will happen.” One or two of my friends, (who volunteered  with me at Jantar Mantar while Anna was on fast) tried to convince him that revolution starts from somewhere but their mincing words failed to do so. He put his point more strongly by making one of the volunteers to stand and asked, “What have you done for the movement since you have come back from Jantar Mantar? Did you write a single letter to editor or even a blogpost? ” The expected answer came from the boy-No!

The sir went on- “You people just create euphoria, if you want to do something start from your own home.It was just a 5 days fest and now everything is gone.” I was listening to all this and ultimately can not resist myself from raising my hand while saying, “sir, I want to say something.” He allowed me to speak and I started, ” Sir, I am connected to this movement from past six months when it started in November last year. Since then, I have written ten letters to editor those have been published in Hindustan Times. I have made the people aware of ‘JanLokpal Bill’ through a special facebook account and Google buzz.I attended the India Against Corruption rally on 30th of January at Ram Lila Maidan.I have been writing blogposts twice a month adressing such issues and I don’t think I have done anything special because I am not the only one. ” Suddenly, he stopped me and smilingly uttered, “In the language of advertising, your product has been sold. Lady you will not let this movement die and I am complimenting you.” Normally, he never gets convinced so early still I preferred to halt myself.

After few minutes, again he touched the wrong strings. ” A simple bill can not curb corruption.Nothing will happen because corruption is so deeply rooted in this country. One or two people can’t bring the change”.You can call it my stubbornness, but I raised my hand again. This time he said, “lady you can put your point but I won’t say a word.” Still I asked him, “Will you agree sir, inspiration can be positive or negative?, He moved his head in affirmation and I continued, “When last time I went for IAC, only one person followed me, but this time at Jantar Mantar, four of my classmates came along with me.Something positive inspired me to volunteer there on my birthday rather than partying with friends. But the way you are treating this issue, next time I won’t find a single person from this class to accompany me because of negative insipration. My only question is why to be so cynical?”. He didn’t say much but just smiled and said, “I am not spreading negativity, I am just motivating you people.”

Though I expressed my viewpoint but frankly speaking, I was a bit scared because I knew that my teacher is going to complain about me to my Director and I will face a tough time.In that 3 hour class, we get a break of 10 mins after one and half hour is over.In the break, he called me up and asked my name.He also asked me about my career plans and gave me some nice suggestions regarding the same.He offered me his help in case I need it in future. If I am not wrong, he was convinced!

The only point to explain the whole incident is to make the people realize that Youth can be directionless,lacks inspiration, contentious and sometimes rude but is not irresponsible. Once it gets a direction, a goal, a particular way, youth is the best asset any country can have to curb any social menace. So, please don’t distrust them rather than provide them a direction, a platform where they can voice their aspirations. I know a 18year old, modern young boy teaching small kids at a village on his birthday and filing more than 120 RTI petitions. I have seen a 19year old actively working with a NGO for the betterment of environment.And this list is endless. How can I be cynical? Let us fail, let us struggle.Even if we return with nothing we have the courage to start again. Remember, with experience you never start with ‘0’, you always start with ‘1’.If you can’t do anything for us, atleast don’t be cynical. As I always say, If you can’t talk positive, atleast be neutral rather than spreading negativity. You never know, who gets inspired from you.

The Search Continues for ” UNITY “


This article was originally Posted as
In search of UNITY in “Unity in Diversity”…..” by ”‘s Blog

*************************************************************************

Unity in diversity-since childhood I am hearing this phrase. Our teachers have always stressed upon presenting India as an epitome of “Unity in Diversity”.Up to some extent I have to believe on it. Ameliorated by sequential breezes of migrations that have become a part of life in India, this country encapsulates 24 languages and numerous dialects spoken by millions of people. This multilingual and  multicultural nation is a home to innumerous communities, groups and  religions.

I do believe in diversity this great country possesses but I am still in search of …..”Unity”. I must make it clear that just shouting in a loud unanimous voice that “We are Indians”, I don’t consider it as Unity. It is a lot more than this. I am in search of a ‘driving force’ that can unite us for a cause, purpose and for the betterment of the nation.

I saw people speaking aloud for reservations on various grounds and getting political support as well.I am not a pessimist by nature but let’s get this fact right–when was the last time they dared to say that my community/religion/group doesn’t need any “special status” just because it won’t be good for my country? Doesn’t it create a rift between the people?Shall I blame presence of diverse groups for this?  The problem is we all are selfish by nature. On one side we ask for “right to equality” and on the other side we ask for “special favors”.I must mention here that nobody ever raised voice against reservation given to war widow’s kids or the tribals living in pathetic conditions. It means , the concept of reservation shall not be completely discarded but it should be genuine.

When Egypt experienced revolution, some people talked about similar kind of revolution against corruption in India. Those people forgot that, may be Egyptian Revolution wasn’t governed by Islam but it was driven by Islam. They all shared a common link between them and we lack that common link. Religion can be extremely powerful weapon against any social or political menace, depends how we interpret and channelize it.

Such movements did start in India also but some found the “saffron robe” communal and some had problem with the poster of “Bharat Mata“. It really made me think whether the “cause” was not important enough or do we lack something? What’s the use of such diversity that stops you to do the right thing and support a well deserving cause? If a religion can bring a revolution in Egypt why doesn’t another can bring out a positive change in the society? When such movements fail, it’s not failure of One ‘Anna’ or ‘Ramdev‘, it’s our failure to stand in unity. On first place, why do we even need people like Anna and Ramdev to fight for us? Aren’t we capable enough? Yes, we are. But we lack any sort of “driving force”…Alaaassss!!!!!! Test for Unity failed again.

“Diversity” and “Secularism“are the two most misused words by Indian politicians.Somewhere they understand our weakness very well and exploit it for their vested interests.’Unity’ has been deliberately deleted from “Unity in Diversity”.They know it, no revolution can yield results and hence they are safe. Who cares till it doesn’t affect us directly in any manner? Be it corruption, be it a blast.

The truth is– Nothing unites us except CRICKET...But I kept my search on.

I have 35 students in my class and they come from 18 different states of India. We never cared about the country, patriotism, India and our responsibility towards the nation. We didn’t even blend with each other because some of us don’t understand each other’s language. A group of people abused India everyday in front of us.We ignored it once, twice, thrice but for the fourth time stood against them. Not only we started giving them an answer, we started reading about India to give them a better answer. Many of us started learning how to file RTIs. 5 or 6 of us took part in IAC movement. We planned and are at the verge of initiating a publication that will be a platform for youth and will help the school students to develop views about current happenings. That ” group” unknowingly united us and acted as a “driving force”.

My search for such a “driving force” in India is still on and I am still living in search of “Unity”…I am still living “in the vicinity of hope..”.

Rahul Gandhi : The Activist or The Rapist ??


 

photograph of Rahul Gandhi, modified from a pi...

Rahul Gandhi : Image via Wikipedia

A shocking piece of new that aired across the world but not shown by the coward Indian media. It might be known to some of y’all those days, but have been forgotten sooner. A big round of applause to our Deadly and Overwhelming Congress Party,who made it Hidden for years.

Rahul Gandhi – The Son of The Great Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, might be dreamed as The Future Leader of The Indian National Congress (I.N.C) Party and even The Future Prime Minister of India. But nobody would even expect him as a Mean Son of a Gun, who would would be The Shame for this Democratic Nation.

It’s Shocking to tell you fellas, that He was involved in a Gang Rape almost 5 years ago.  On 3rd December 2006, Rahul Gandhi was camping at Amethi along with 7 others including 4 foreigners (two from Britain and other two from Italy, names not known).

Around 9 P.M all of them were drinking liquor at a V.I.P. guest house in a high security zone. They had an uninvited guest, a young girl named Sukanya Devi, 24 years of age, a staunch follower of Nehru-Gandhi family and daughter of Congress worker Balram Singh.

Sukanya was looking for an opportunity to meet Rahul Gandhi since last two years and on that fateful night she able to meet him. Sukanya’s family has been supporting the Congress party since the time of Nehru.

When she met Rahul he spoke to her for a couple of minutes and later he and his friends offered here liquor. Sukanya was amazed seeing all this, she was not feeling comfortable, she refused to have liquor and took permission to leave, but she was forced to stay back and drink. She kept resisting, but they raped her one by one. She cried for help, but her cries fell on deaf ears. Even the security personnel preferred to remain as mute spectators.

She kept weeping all along and was threatened and asked to keep her mouth shut. She was given Rs.50,000 /-. She straightaway went to the local police station. The police refused to book any complaint and asked her to go home.

Before she could reach home, Congress workers had gathered at her house and gave a different version of the incident to her father. They accused her of trying to seduce Rahul Gandhi. Her father Balram Singh, without giving her a chance to explain what had happened to her beat her up mercilessly. Balram Singh learnt the facts from others who were witness to the crime, but he preferred to remain quite as he did not want to challenge Rahul Gandhi and the Congress Party.

Sukanya’s mother Sumitra Devi, who learnt about the whole incident immediately went with her daughter to Police HQ in Amethi. The Police officials refused to book any complaint and advised her to remain quite. She went from pillar to post pleading for justice, but no one heard her pleas.

Sumithra Devi gave a statement in a press conference with a very thin attendance and there she was confronted by Congressmen who physically assaulted both mother & daughter. On 27th December 2006 Sumithra Devi went to New Delhi to meet Sonia Gandhi. Sonia refused to meet her. With no options left she went to Human Rights Commission who just noted down her complaint and asked her to leave.

The Congressmen have threatened to kill both Sumithra Devi and her daughter Sukanya if she makes the rape issue public. Both the mother and daughter are in despair trying to seek justice. Both mother and daughter were camping in New Delhi for over a fortnight to get an appointment with the President of India. They have not got an appointment either with the President or with the Chief Justice.

Both mother and daughter are now in hiding. If the Congressmen don’t kill her, the Opus Di (secret service of the Vatican) definitely will. Now instead of singing vande mataram we should be singing vande mata rome.

It was a NEWS that was broadcasted around the World. But due to our Powerful Government and the candy-ass Indian Media made it totally unknown to Indian citizens. However, The Foreign Sites where this controversial matter was articulated, have been removed (or should I say, forced to be removed by Congress Party). But Luckily, I’ve got an article regarding this issue in a PDF file, which I would now show for y’all to have a look on it.

Download the PDF “Rahul Gandhi involved in Gang Rape”

This Article might be True or Fake. We can’t still judge whether Rahul Gandhi’s Character is ‘Seedha’ or ‘Dheela’. But since after hearing his Ridiculous Views on July 13 Mumbai Bomb Blastsand even Anna’ Hazare’s Fast against Corruption, I seriously don’t trust that Filthy Maggot. 😛


India of My Dream


I dreamt of a Proud India
Peace helps in making
strong people and Nation,
which is the result of
India’s left long patience.
India stands for its
value and wealth.
Its culture, religion and people
are its strength.
Varied Cultural and Multi Linguisms
Inter Woven so well,
that truly denotes
the warmth of India as well.
Secularism a lesson of peace,
India has learnt
That Communalism, Casteism
and Fundamentalism should totally be burnt.

I dreamt of an Inspiring India
where The Golden Paths of
Mahatma Gandhi’s Motives,
Raja Ram Mohan Roy’s Reforms,
Swami Vivekananda’s Ideals,
Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s Sacrifice,
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s Bravery
won’t ever be rejected.
And even, Today’s
Kishore Da’s Songs,
Lata Mangeshkar’s Voice,
Kapil Dev’s Victories,
Sachin Tendulkar’s Glories,
Abdul Kalam’s Mind,
Bharat Kumar’s Pride,
A.R. Rahman’s Musical Fusion,
Anna Hazare’s Revolution
would also be added.

I dreamt of a Peaceful India
where national Integration has
led to Unity in Diversity,
and its Rich Heritage has
led to its popularity.
Holi, Diwali and Christmas
are celebrated together,
and Sacrifice and Patriotism
for the country has led to
Faith in each other.

I dreamt of an United India
where People born and grow up
with Vivid Imaginations,
Taking Ideals from many
as their source of Inspiration.
Creating Peace all the time,
Holding each others’ hand,
Banishing Discrimination,
Maintaining Co-operation,
Killing every aspect of
Terrorism, Rivalry
and The Deadly Corruption,
Giving proudly to India
The True Democratic Definition
of an Independent Nation.

I dreamt of an Incredible India
where we abide by tolerance,
to make India a land of
Endurance and Forbearance.
We need to show the World
what really is Independence.
Keep on Fighting
for Peace and Dignity,
Keep on Running
for Success and Victory
until the end.
Even if you’re scared to
bring this BIG CHANGE in your life,
May be you don’t have any clue,
But Don’t be afraid of nothing,
Just keep counting on everybody
to make this little dream come true.

!! Jai Hind !!

Sonia Gandhi : Getting Away With Murder


Sonia Gandhi, Indian politician, president of ...

Sonia Gandhi - Image via Wikipedia

The bottom line observed in Sonia’s mindset is that she can disregard Indian laws with impunity. If cornered or if she becomes vulnerable to prosecution, she can always run back to Italy. In Peru, President Fujimori who all along claimed to be “born Peruvian”, when faced with a corruption charge fled to Japan with his loot and reclaimed his Japanese citizenship. That is Sonia’s bottom line fall-back option too.

In 1977, when the Janata Party defeated the Congress at the polls, and formed the government, it widely known and published that Sonia with her two children abandoned Indira Gandhi, and ran to the Italian Embassy in New Delhi and hid there. Rajiv Gandhi was a government servant then[as an Indian Airlines pilot], but he too tagged along and hid in that foreign embassy ! Such was her baneful influence on him. Rajiv did snap out Sonia’s influence after 1989, but alas he was assassinated before he could rectify the situation.

Those close to Rajiv knew that he was planning set things right about Sonia after the 1991 elections. He held her to blame for all the financial scandals that led to his defeat at the 1989 polls. She knew of it too because he had told her on his trip to Soviet Union in February 1991. Ever wonder why Sonia’s closest advisers are those whom Rajiv literally hated? Ambika Soni is one such name. Ever wonder why she has asked the President of India to set aside on a mercy petition the Supreme Court judgment directing that Rajiv Gandhi’s LTTE killers be hanged, when she was not similiarly moved for Satwant Singh who killed Indira Gandhi or even recently for Dhanajoy Chattopadhyaya ? The explanation for this special consideration for the LTTE perhaps lies in what Rajiv had told her about their future. May be therefore Sonia feels obliged to the LTTE for the assassination. More on this later.

Those who have no love for India will not hesitate to plunder her treasures. Mohammed Ghori, Nadir Shah, and the British scum in the East India Company such as Robert Clive, made no secret of it. But Sonia Gandhi has been more discreet, but as greedy, in her looting of Indian treasures. When Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were Prime Ministers, not a day passed when the PM’s security did not go to the New Delhi, or Chennai international airport to send crates and crates of Indian antiques and other treasures, unchecked by customs, to Rome. Air India and Alitalia were the chosen carriers. For organizing all this, Mr. Arjun Singh first as CM, later as Union Minister in charge of Culture, was her hatchet man.
Indian temple sculpture of gods and goddesses, antiques, pichwai paintings, shatoosh shawls, coins, and you name it, were transported to Italy to be first displayed in two shops [see Annexure-16] owned by her sister, Anuskha alias Alessandra Maino Vinci. These shops located in blue-collar areas of Rivolta[shop name: Etnica] and Orbassano [shop name: Ganpati] did little business because which blue collar Italian wants to buy Indian antiques ? The shops were there to make false bills, and thereafter these treasures were taken to London for auction by Sotheby’s and Christies.

Some of this ill-gotten money from auction went into the bank accounts of Rahul Gandhi in the National Westminister Bank and Hongkong & Shanghai Bank, London branches, but most of it found it’s way into the Gandhi family account in the Bank of America in Cayman Islands. Rahul’s expenses and tuition fees for the one year he was at Harvard, was paid from that Cayman Island account [see Annexures-17].

What kind of people are these Gandhi-Mainos that bite the very hand of Bharat Mata that fed them and gave them a good life? How can the nation trust or tolerate such greedy thieves of national treasures?

Since I failed to persuade the Vajpayee government to defend India’s treasures from plunder by the Mainos, I approached the Delhi High Court in a PIL. The first Bench of the court issued notice to the Government, but since the Indian government dragged it’s feet, the Court directed the CBI to seek Interpol’s and Italian government’s help. The Italian government justifiably asked for a Letter Rogatory for which a FIR is a pre-requisite. But the Interpol did oblige and submitted two voluminous reports on the shops which the Court directed the CBI to hand over to me. But CBI has so far refused, and has claimed privilege!

This question will be argued out at the next hearing of my PIL.

The CBI has also been caught lying in court by telling the judges that Alessandra Maino is a name of a man, and Via Bellini 14, Orbassano is a name of a village[not the street address of the Maino’s residence]. Although the CBI counsel had to apologise later to the court stating he had made a mistake, he has been promoted to Additional Solicitor General by the new government! Why was he appointed as the CBI’s counsel by the Vajpayee government in the first place? The Vajpayee-Sonia mutual assistance pact is thus in full view in this episode.

But the most sinister aspect of Sonia Gandhi’s links is her connection with terrorists. I am still working on it, but she has had long connection with the Habash group of Palestinians [PFLP], and has funded Palestinian families that lost their kith and kin in a suicide bombing or hijacking episode. This fact, Rajiv Gandhi himself told me and was confirmed to me [the funding aspect] by Yassir Arafat when I met him in Tunis on October 17, 1990 at the request of Rajiv Gandhi. Rajiv and I were good friends from 1978, but became very close friends after V.P. Singh had betrayed him in 1987. We met practically every day, mostly in the early hours from 1AM to 4AM, discussed, chatted and gossiped on every topic. It was at my suggestion that Rajiv made Chandrashekhar the PM. And contrary to public impression, he was not mainly responsible for fall of Chandrashekar government[of which I was a Minister].

Besides the Palestinian extremists, the Maino family have had extensive business dealings with Saddam Hussein [see Annexure-18], and surprisingly since 1984 with the LTTE [“the Tamil Tigers”]. Sonia’s mother Paola Predebon Maino, and businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi are the main contacts with the Tigers. The mother used the LTTE for money laundering and Quattrocchi for selling weapons to earn commissions. Sonia’s conduit to the LTTE has been and is through Arjun Singh who uses Bangalore as the nodal point for contact.

There is a string of circumstantial evidence pointing to the prima facie possibility that the Maino family may have contracted with the LTTE to kill Rajiv Gandhi. The family may have assured the LTTE that nothing would happen to them because they would ensure it is blamed on the Sikhs or the evidence so much fudged that no court would convict them[ the LTTE intercepted transcripts show this expectation of the LTTE]. But D.R. Karthikeyan of the CBI who led the SIT investigation got the support of Narasimha Rao, cracked the case, and succeeded in getting the LTTE convicted in the trial court, which conviction was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1999.

Although on the involvement of some members of the Congress Party in the assassination, DRK soft peddled it ignoring a number of leads perhaps because he did not want political controversy to put road blocks on his investigation as a whole.

The Justice J. S. Verma Commission, which was set up as the last official act of the Chandrashekhar government before demitting office on June 21, 1991, did find that the Congress leaders had disrupted the security arrangements for the Sriperumbudur meeting. The Commission wanted further probe into it but the Rao government rejected that demand. In the meantime under Sonia’s pressure, the Jain Commission was set up by the Rao government, which tried to muddy the waters and thus exonerate the LTTE. But the trial court judgment convicting the LTTE came earlier than the Commission could conclude, and that sinister effort therefore too failed.
Nowadays, Sonia is quite unabashed in having political alliance with those who like MDMK, PMK, and DMK praise Rajiv Gandhi’s killers. No Indian widow would ever do that. Such circumstances are many, and raise a doubt. My investigations into Sonia’s involvement in Rajiv’s assassination is therefore necessary. I am also author of a best seller titled Assassination Of Rajiv Gandhi—Unasked Questions and Unanswered Queries[published by Konark in 2000] in which I have given some indications of this possible conspiracy.

Is it not significant that the political career graph of Sonia Gandhi advances concomitantly with a series of assassinations and apparently accidental deaths?

How did Sanjay’s plane on June 23, 1980 nosedive to a crash and yet the plane fuselage failed to explode upon impact? There was no fuel ! How was that possible since flight register shows full tank before take-off ? Why was there no inquiry conducted ?

Is it not a fact that Indira Gandhi died because of loss of blood from the wounds and not directly due to a bullet impacting her head or heart ? Then is it not strange that Sonia had insisted that the bleeding Indira be driven to Lohia Hospital– in the opposite direction to AIIMS which had a contingency protocol set up for precisely such an event ? And after reaching Lohia Hospital, did not Sonia change her mind and demand that they all drive to AIIMS thus losing 24 valuable minutes ?

The same kind of mystery surrounds the sudden deaths of Sonia’s other political roadblocks such as Rajesh Pilot, Jitendra Prasad, and Madhavrao Scindia. Such untimely deaths happened in the dark ages in Italy. Should we allow it to happen in India like dumb cattle going to slaughter?

Indian Education System : Ain’t Good Enough


Referred from :- Meri News Article : How good is Indian education system?

I’ve read this article few days back while surfing. I found it very interesting.This article discusses the current education scenario in India, public expenditure on education, need of the hour to reform the system and the true role of education in nation building.

————————————————————————————————————

“TELL ME the books you read and I will tell your character”, goes the saying. However, education is not just about reading books or garnering knowledge. Books are a means to education, and education is a means to knowledge, neither implying an end in itself. Education is the pragmatic application of knowledge for the betterment of people, society, and self.

Education sustains our present and insures our future. Unfortunately, the education scenario in India is very disturbing. The ‘EFA Global Monitoring Report 2010’ (UNESCO), ranks India 105 among 128 countries, and it continues to figure alongside a cluster of African and a couple of Asian countries, such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, in the group of countries with a low educational development index (EDI). In 2007, India was ranked not only behind countries such as Norway, Japan, and Germany that figured at the top, but also past several Latin American, African, and Asian developing countries.

The pupil-teacher ratio, too, in primary schools in India is very low (1:40) compared with countries like UK (1:21.6) and Japan (1:19), despite the fact that India allocates more expenditure as a percentage of GDP on education, i.e. ~3% (a popular research result reveals that public expenditure on education should account for at least 4.07% of GDP). The average pupil-teacher ratio in the developed countries is 13.7. The global average is 24.6 pupils per teacher (1:24.6) in primary school.

The dropout rates in India, at the high school level are also on the rise (~50%) in spite of increased educational expenditures by the states. Moreover, the infrastructure facilities in schools are pathetic. According to the latest statistics available from the Flash Statistics and Analytical Reports on Elementary Education in India, published by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration in 2009-10, there are only three classrooms per primary school in India, on an average, and only three teachers per school. About 14% of the schools have only one classroom each, and single-teacher schools constitute a similar proportion.

While the standard national pupil-teacher ratio in primary schools is 1:40 (one teacher for every 40 students), 30% of the schools have a ratio above this. In Bihar, while the standard ratio at the State level is 1:59, there are 92 (1:92) students on an average per classroom. All this indicates a poorly organized system of education.

Need of the Hour

The implication of all the above arguments is that a pupil-teacher ratio of around 20 (1:20) may be taken up as a desirable ratio. We need good quality teachers in sufficient numbers. This is a basic prerequisite for quality primary education.

Innovation is another aspect of the quality of education. Innovation in education is not only necessary, it is absolutely crucial. Firstly, innovations in subjects offer a host of choices to students. Secondly, innovations in examination patterns facilitate precise evaluation of their skills in a subject. Innovations also enable a student to arrive at a better-informed choice of subjects. The choice of subjects will ‘involve’ the students and equip them with skills befitting their interest, which could be harnessed for the benefit of self and the nation.

For instance, let’s say that someone is interested in journalism and wants to pursue investigative journalism rather than mere reporting. The course has to offer various choices within journalism (say, investigative journalism, reporting, business journalism, sports journalism, etc.). If the course doesn’t offer these choices, then one who is genuinely interested in something may not get the opportunity to pursue it and end up doing something that one doesn’t like, as there is Hobson’s choice. This may hamper one’s potential in giving one’s best, and may directly or indirectly scuttle the opportunity in contributing towards the country’s economic growth.

The issue of innovation brings us to an important aspect of education – choice – that seems to be sufficiently lacking in our education system to enable better academic performance of students and to elevate the quality of education.

The True Role of Education: An Introspection

The human being is a social animal whose needs and urges are originated and fulfilled within a given society and rarely in isolation. While the primary objective of any education is to enable us to know things we did not know earlier, so as to improve the quality of life, this principle had not been appreciated in depth by our educational policy makers for decades. Artificial barriers in the nature of knowledge were created. It was specified that knowledge could either be for its own sake or for the sake of its application.

However, on reflection, it becomes clear that unless any form of knowledge is applied, it cannot be improved or suitably channeled. A large proportion of people need knowledge that is of an applied character and that helps them simplify important activities of daily living. Moreover, each person is gifted with a particular range of skills. These two facts indicate that a continued thrust on a rigid academic structure would not be desirable. One must understand that provision of choices – over academic subjects or electives – is a continuous process. The system would work better if students were given an opportunity to exercise choice earlier in their education – rather than later – when several factors, other than their inherent competencies, exert an influence over their choice of subjects.

———————————————————————————————————–

Well, this is one of the current agenda these days. We need something that could set up such drawbacks of this system, and possibly eradicate them for good. Otherwise, It’s too late in future.

And In the end, I would quote:

It’s too lame to say that
” I was Born Intelligent, But Education Ruined Me “
It actually would be said in India that
“It was Our HRD Minister, Mr. Kapil Sibbal,
who is born to Ruin The Education System of India “ 😛

CRICKET : More than Just a GAME


It is true indeed. It is really running in our Blood, beating our heart, swinging the emotions, making us anticipated, exhilarating our mind and eventually giving us Joy and Pleasure in the end. A True Cricket Fan, who really understands these familiar senses and feelings that always and forever resides while spectating this kind of Game either on Stadium or on their Television Sets, would be able to catch me easily.

Craze among Cricket Fans while watching the Game in TV

Fans Screaming

I don’t know what does it means for other Countries. It really means a lot to India. Inspite not being a National Game, it is mostly played and enjoyed by many. Every single Cricket Fan, would have same traits like I am having. We all get rid off from our busy life for a while and keep an eye on every Ball, every Run, every Boundary and every Wicket of this Game, for hours. Cheering for our Team, Baiting Nails on Serious Situation and Shouting when Our Team has hit a Boundary or taken a Wicket. We even try to give our expert views and comments, before and after the match. We eventually make a HYPE of this Game. May be it’s Wrong to an extent, as we are more biased towards Cricket, not for other Sports, especially our own National Sport – Hockey. But It’s Cricket Fever as always, baby. You can’t help it.

Now since the Cricket World Cup 2011 is going on and which is happening in Indian Sub-Continent, it still be having BIG HYPE for sure, Like Indian Premier league (IPL) every year.

Support The Nation

But on the contrary, with all these support and favoritism to our Team, it also brings HYPER NATIONALISM and HYPOCRISY for one’s country. People would highly support our Team, pretending and flaunting others that we are such a BIG Fans of Cricket. Some would even do Spiritual Bon-Fires or “Havanas” for that.

''Havana'' for Indian Cricket Team

It the same ole problem. Whenever there’s HYPE, people would follow it sure, just to grab attention from everybody. The same case exists during the World Cup as well. People would be wearing Indian Jersey, talking about Cricket 24 x 7. But when all the event ends, its HYPE ends and people then don’t give a DAMN afterwards.

Well, even Film actors are in this race. They also come for the match, not only for spectating the game, but also for promoting their movie or getting some attention in public.

Actors come for Movie Promotion

Ya, Some of them made a Cricket Team of their own in IPL and making a lot of money form there, even if they know sh*t about this Game and Players.

Shah Rukh Khan (Owner of Kolkata Knight Riders)

Preity Zinta (Owner Of Kings XI Punjab)

While some make relations with Cricketers, just to grab attention and publicity in Media.

Harbhajan Singh (Super-Hit Bowler) & Geeta Basra (Super-Flop Actress)

Yuvraj Singh (Talented Cricketer) & Dee-pika- Padu-Kaun (Untalented Actress cum Model)

Even if that doesn’t works, some wannabes would try something else, to get famous. Very recently, an Indian Kingfisher model (or I say a bimbo) named, “Poonam Pandey”. shocked everyone when she committed that she will take off all of her clothes in the stadium in case of an Indian victory. Pandey claimed that she will first go naked in the stadium for the crowd and then the Kingfisher model plans to strip inside the dressing room in front of the players with the permission of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). For getting started, she begins with this. An ICC World Cup 2011 Logo on her back, showing off with vanity.

Poonam Pandey - Truly Fake Fan Supporter

Poonam Pandey - Wannabe Fan Supporter and Slut

For all these non-sense, she proclaims herself as a True Cricket Fan and Patriotic. She even BRAGS that she is confident of her body and is doing it just to motivate Dhoni’s Team and company, in her own way. Taking some inspiration from this prostitute, another Wannabe shows up like that.

It’s simply pathetic. This reminds me when an Uruguayan Model did so for supporting her Football Team, during FIFA World Cup 2010. It is Cheap Publicity and Promotion of Obscenity, whether such cheap milf sluts admit this or not.

Apart from this, not only our Hypocritical Media who would over-rate our cricket team on victory and demoralize them on their demise. I’ve witnessed some people or i say so-called cricket fans, who would get over-excited and over-ambitious when our Team wins, and would be criticizing and making FUN of the losing Team, even if they’ve also performed well but it wasn’t their day.

There are plenty of examples, but Let’s talk about the recent ones.

The India-Australia Quarter-Final encounter in Ahmadabad, where we won by 5 wickets.

We were not still done, as we thrashed Pakistan at Semi-final in Mohali by 29 runs.

Sometimes, such pics seems bit FUNNY and that’s for a while , but not everytime. People forget to realise that even the losing team has performed well. Instead of giving them some appreciation for reaching here so far, they would give such harsh comments in the end. My facebook friend just wrote on his status when India defeated Pakistan, ” 11 Terrorists have been raped and f*cked hard by Indians in Mohali  ” .  Is it valid quote to show your victory to other ??

And those same Hypocrites would back-stab the support of their own Team, by giving harsh comments and lame verdicts. It seems so pathetic, when such parasites would burn their posters and cut-outs and even make them ride on donkeys.

Again plenty of instances,where Dejected fans shown their anger.

During World Cup 1996, where we lost in the Semis.

During World Cup 1999, where we were eliminated in Super Six.

During World Cup 2003, where we lost in the Final.

and, even during World Cup 2007, where we were eliminated in Group Stage.

Eventually, we are not as matured as our Cricketers are. They’ve enjoyed their triumph and even faced their apocalypse. But they never give up and play their own game. Everybody has their good times and bad times. That’s unquestionable, unpredictable and inevitable. It’s better that we ought to support our Team forever, neither over-rating nor discouraging them.

Let all the People cheer for their country and appreciate other’s Nation.

Let all the Flags be on your Faces

Let all those Colorful Flags be waving high in the sky.

Let the Flag be United

Let there be Friendship between the Two Teams before, during and even after the match,
and Stay United.

Unity

That’s the duty of ours as  A True Cricket Fan in making this Gentlemen’s Game, completely clean inside the field as well as outside the field. Hopefully, we witness some maturity from our Cricket Fans and so-called Hype-followers, even we lose against Sri Lanka in the Finals.
