A dirty game......................

She was an ingenious, smart, brainy, sharp, and a valiant lady who was respected a lot among her co workers for her professionalism and her innovative spanking new ideas. She was valued a lot in the company as well as among her peers. Her work was appreciated and cherished by everyone in the office. Everything was going in a very tenuous manner for her, but unexpectedly she had to leave India with her husband for some years. This was the time when lot of development took place and she lost touch with her profession for quite some time. When she returned India she anticipated the same reverence and admiration for her work. But that didn’t happen, even though she was still much much better then her counterparts. She started hunting for a new job so that she can resurrect her dead career. Soon her search came to an end, and she joined a small corporation with almost three fourth of lesser pay package then what she use to get at her previous company though she never gave any importance to money as she joined that organization with only one thought in mind –reviving her dead career- and she started her job with lot of ecstasy and gusto in mind. She started acclimatizing herself with company’s work culture and people there. And once again she recouped her position in the company. Everyone was feeling exultant about the way she worked and mingled with people. Her growing reputation in the company was not liked by few bootlickers, as their prominence in the company was in dwindling state due to her assertive and obsequious attitude. And from here the real drama began…..the manager started meddling into her work; he started scrutinizing everything whatever she used to do. He started passing comments about the way she used to work. He even started espying every pint-sized detail about her work which she did not like , and finally talked to him about his conduct and treatment that she received from him, which further winded up the matter into worse. Her plainspoken and sassy attitude exasperated the manager. As he always liked people who can lick his boot or suck up to his willing. He never complimented anyone for their good deeds. But he always pinpointed even very – very petty slip-ups, which was abhorred by every single employee in the company. The only difference between her and other employees was that she was outspoken, audacious and gallant enough to put her thoughts in front of him. She repudiated to suck up to him; she did not accede to his offer of doing sycophancy. Instead of losing her self-esteem just for few pennies she recognized her sense of worth and went against his beliefs. He had some kind of bĂȘte-noir for her but he did not want to loose an endowed employee, so he tried other ways to bring her down. He changed her team, he shifted her place in office, and he assigned her
all extraneous and minor work, though it was not worthy of doing But she did.
This revealed her enduring, mellowing, and nonchalant attitude. When he came to know that she is not his cup of tea, and he can’t make her work on his own conditions and terms. He played his last grubby card- according to an old saying-if my memory serves me right, people in jealousy, smugness and arrogance can take any extreme step, because your pride kills your ability to think. And he acted in the same way as any other supercilious, self-centered person will do. He put his ego over the company's interest and resorted to his last weapon.She got fired!!! He did not realize the importance of firing out a gifted and skillful employee. And one more nifty and brilliant lady became a victim of sullied office politics. This whole episode had enormous impact on other employees mind,This left everyone in a very self-doubting, perplexed and fuming mood. Well to placate other employees the management played a one more nitpicky card. They threw all the types of lollipops that they could,(in a same manner when you throw some food to hungry and infuriated dogs)….only to people who sucked up to him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......well this is the truth of professional world, from what I have seen in my very little tenure at a company….there is quote which is written by one of my friend , which is his personal view, though i did not get the meaning of the quote when he wrote it...

"professional World understands only two words....Suck and Fuck. Now its up to you which one you want. Either you are on your knees to suck or you make others bend on their knees to fuck them."

Life is very complicated.....the sooner you understand the funda of suck and fuck the better are your chances of survival.

"Either submit to suck......or get ready to fuck"

but I understood it after this …..
Which seems to be quite true in this scenario……….

shame shame!!!!

One day when I was passing through patni road secunderabd, my eyes were struck on a woman, lying on the middle of the road and crying. firstly I could not get what all was happening but soon I come to know that she is a pregnant woman (20-22), who is crying because of labor pain(or may be some other problem )and beside her there were two children or I would rather call two LIVE SKELTONS who were trying to console their mother. I looked at them and couldn’t stop myself asking this question? What is going to be the future of these two children, and the one who is still waiting to step in to this world of poverty and hunger? If she is unable to feed the other two why did she get pregnant, but in few seconds I realized that the condition of a women in our country is dependent on her educational and financial status in the family and society. And this woman does not have any family or community support and the child which she is carrying in her womb, even she may not know who is father of that child, because these are the women who face all types of sexual harassment and are most frequently or daily raped. It is quite common in our country that a doctor’s child become doctor and an engineer’s child becomes an engineer similarly a prostitute’s daughter surly to become a prostitute and a beggar’s son is going to be bagger…so the fate of her child is decided before he arrives . And yeah, who care if she is unable to feed her other kids, if she is not going to take proper nutrinal intake-must for a pregnant lady-(for her it may be food for two times), and who cares if she delivers her baby on the road, nothing will happen….. if she gets some kind of infection during this?, as chances of getting infections are high due to unhygienic conditions , and what if she is not given proper medical treatment. Nothing will happen!!! She will die that’s it…nothing great. it is quite common in our country, as out of every 8 lady in India 1 dies during the time of delivering her baby , so she may be just one of them…and what about her kids !!! same as their mother….they will die due to hunger, in scientific language due to mal-nutrition and we Indians are ahead of all the countries in the world, constitutes world 40 % or 55 millions malnourished children, (nearly two and half times the population of Australia) , infect sub-Saharan African countries (who are known for all this) are better than us even though they suffer from pervasive poverty, dictatorships and regulars famines. Well the reasons for mal nourished children are again blamed on women, which is quite true as more then 75 % of pregnant ladies are anemic and if a mother is not healthy the child is not going to be healthy. The fate of a women and her child starts from the day she marries to someone which is again dependent on her educational and financial status, the kind of family she meets and the husband she gets, as all these factors decide whether a child is malnourished or not!!! Situation becomes pathetic when she does not have any financial and emotional support. Because a women in India without power (in any form financial or educational) does not have any voice or rather prohibited to speak out by the so-called man dominated society……so what is going to be fate of these three, where will she go? have we all become so inhuman that we cannot listen to the cry of a woman … and I lost in thinking what will it take if we all stand united together to resolve this issue, if every Indian show some determination that we will not let any child sleep hungry, if we can pay our 5 % of annual salary for this purpose it is not going to affect us anyway, the every 100-120 rupees that we spend on one movie and monthly 4-5 movies. if we watch only three and give 100 note for charity which will feed 5 people minimum and that will give immense satisfaction to us, these all may look small….but these things can make a difference in lot of other’s life..…..well when I was lost in thoughts she asked me for help. I gave her 100 rupee note (I wanted to give her some more, but I am still dependent on my parents..)…poor lady I sighed off!! And left that place….I Thought about her during my whole journey …..what all require is will……..determination…………… end it……….may be ….some seriousness which we lack…….well when I registered my name for CHANGE INDIA org. ……they asked me in which area would u like to work ?? And I said…without a proper thought….….issues on women and child development…..…………

Lack of sleep…..can lead to obesity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you sleep less, you are more likely to be obese..!!!!!!! Well the first week of April is insomnia awareness week; this month is also a sleep awareness month. Lack of sleep was till now associated with overworked professionals but now youngsters, children are also facing this problem, and doctors say anyone who sleep less than 6-8 hours a day is likely to be 6 times more obese then the one who eats junk food regularly.
And the scientific reason behind this is imbalancing of two hormones. One is ghrelin, and another is leptin. Ghrelin is responsible for appetite and leptin is for satiety.
Hormonal imbalance happens when the sleep is not adequate, and whenever the level of hormone modulated, it increases the weight gain and appetite which results in obesity. factors like demanding work environment, pressure of studies, long travel time, influence of parent and partner life style, excessive use of computer and tv which add to it and make you more obese…….

So guys sleep well….stay away from obesity…live happily…..

NOTE: lack of sleep is not the single cause of obesity.....it is just one of them... commonly in children and youngsters)

chalo ek baar phir se......

Chalo ek baar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

Na main tumse koi ummeed rakhoon dilnavaazi ki
Na tum meri taraf dekho galat andaaz nazaron se
Na mere dil ki dhadkan ladkhadaaye meri baaton mein
Na zaahir ho tumhaari kashm-kash ka raaz nazaron se

Tumhen bhi koi uljhan rokti hai peshkadmi se
Mujhe bhi log kehte hain, ki yeh jalve paraaye hain
Mere hamraah bhi rusvaaiyaan hain mere maajhi ki
Tumhaare saath bhi guzri hui raaton ke saaye hain

Taarruf rog ho jaaye to usko bhoolnaa behtar
Taalluk bojh ban jaaye to usko todnaa achchha
Voh afsaana jise anjaam tak laana na ho mumkin
Use ek khoobsoorat mod dekar chhodna achchha

nice song........
