Corruption, Terrorism and Injustice- Recap 2010

Every year on the calender has something to say to the coming year, 2009 was lay-off without a PF or employee benefit and cried on the shoulder of 2010, who apparently was outsourced from some of the very cheap outsourcing markets. The result, 2010 was in good mood and had faith, he will succeed. Well, he did, mostly.

Now, that 2010 is leaving for the day, he looks back and has no other thing to say, 'OMG, I cannot believe I survived that...'

2010 began optimistically, promising a good deal for India and the world altogether. The nearly depressed and hopeless 2009 parted very sadly with no jobs, no money and no sense but 2010 came with the motto, 'Yes we can.' 

Now 2010 was a good lobbyist and he did try to rectify things, for one thing, 2010 did try to do some justice to the prolong judgment of Bhopal Gas tragedy, Babri Masjid Demolition and even the smaller trials of Arushi Murder case as well as Jessica Murder.

But then, 2010 also was worried at every stage of the verdict as it was dancing on the razor edge of the blade. It took deep breath every minute the verdict was delayed, but thankfully, unlike its ancestors 1993, there were no riots and no confusion. Infact the result was so confusing, that it took a while for people to understand it. Still, the result was out.

2010 also saw the rise of common man, with corrupt politicians had to run for cover as Arnab from Times Now charged over them like a wild berserk bull. So what if Kalmadi gave a very new and fresh meaning to the word 'World-class' and at the same time, Raja had to admit himself in hospital, but frankly Raja, this hospital crap we used to do in third standard when we did not complete out homework. Also with top brass of Indian army grabbing the land of martyrs of Kargil was the most cold-blooded shame 2010 saw.

Molester Rathod had a different story to tell, as his smile on the face outside the courtroom immediately vanished, as the media decided to skin him alive. He might get away soon, but I hope, he has a lot of savings because once the trial is over, he will need lot of money to leave the country and settle in the jungles of south-Africa.

Talking about South-Africa, Kalmadi did make the CWG teams feel like home, by putting a live snake in the room of South-African players, he fell short of Kangaroo or Australian players were in for a treat.

Never before in the history of India was the whole republic desperate for an American citizen, not it was not the President of the United States but two people, Warren Anderson, the Chairman of UCIL and David Headley. The former was protected by the corporate laws of the two countries, while the later was hoping this country would never catch him.

2010 has some bad memories with it too, like the very beloved German Bakery was destroyed at the beginning of the year, hoping that tourist in India would stop coming. Well, that hope was not spend wisely and nothing happened.

2010 has some good memories to share too, with India Inc. making its mark on the global level, with the fastest economy to come out of recession. The president of United States coming to India with prospect of getting some jobs in US and ofcourse, despite all corruption, successful completion of CWG 2010, well almost.

As always, year 2010 is giving something to its successor, this time, the baby 2011 has a big leak to fix in. Wikileaks has been added in English Dictionary as a word forever.

All in all 2010 acted in a wonderful way to empower humans and discredit politicians, hope that 2011 helps this cause and empowers human lives more than big shots. All that only time can tell,

Still, about 2011 we can say one thing, its good its not 2012.


Thats it I guess, last post of this year, see you next year.

[Short Story] The Last Breath On Earth

A bug is a computer anomaly that is generated usually because of developer’s ignorance or environmental factors. The former is more prominent in computer programs. The term debugging means to find the cause for the bug and fixing it. The term debugging has a humorous origin. In 1947, Grace Murray Hopper was working on the Harvard University Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator. On the 9th of September, 1947, when the machine was experiencing problems, an investigation showed that there was a moth trapped between the points of Relay #70, in Panel F. The operators removed the moth and affixed it to the log. The word went out that they had "debugged" the machine and the term "debugging a computer program" was born. As the technology progresses it advances towards perfection and minimizes its flaws, unfortunately, this was not true for computers. The bugs and errors increased exponentially with the advancement of computers. What earlier was a mere moth trapped i

[Short Story] Return

He walked the old dusty road again after so many years. He remembered the place very well, so many memories etched into his mind. The old forgotten dusty lane, which was never urbanized by any political agenda. The same old little house which stood the test of time for so many years. He remembered his last walk on this road. He was trying to prevent the flood flowing from his nose and running his sore bumps with his free hand. He knew this return was uncalled for, unexpected but it was the one he had to make. He did not know how she would react, would she still be happy on seeing him or will she even recognize him? The crumbled paper clutched in his hand was his identity for so many years. It was a his ticket to existence, his own. The bell was in his reach now, he was a few seconds away in uncovering the truth. If he wanted to turn back, this was the last threshold. Funny thing was, even after so many days, his hand shivered at this stage. Would he face her? Face

Short Story: Parting ways

Funny thing, I just realized I never wrote a funny short story, which was quite surprising as Story is what I like writing and humor is what I do best (atleast I think so), but for some reason I do not write a short story with a fun thing and I wanted to know why, I realized writing humorous stories is a challenge that even I cannot take. Well, below is not some of my best work, I tried to stay focused but apparently couldn’t. No characters in this story are real, any resemblances to real characters is coincidental, I just put some Blogger friends names so I might get inspired but well… you tell me how it is. Sreya was driving all the way to her friends house. As always Shruti was in trouble. ‘He has left again, Sreya,’ said Shruti between sob, ‘it was so obvious since beginning, he as just messing around. Its over girl, its over. I have nothing else to do now.’
