who are the investigators in our country?


they keep calling this India's largest terrorist attack.
Hello, anyone remember the 200 people who died two years ago?

I don't know how much candle lighting is going to help.
Was this true?

Who to ask?

blood and shed

The state in Mumbai these past two days has been rather bleak.
For one I'm afraid that if Mom, Dad, and Chirag have to stay in that house for any longer without going out, they will end up killing each other!

Jokes apart, my thoughts:

1. The government needs to collaborate with other countries to figure out where all in the world similar attacks have taken place. It is probably the same group, or the same groups have trained these guys.

2. Regarding the train blasts, or the Malegaon ones, the public is still largely unaware about why that happened. What was the purpose, what was done to resolve the situation?

3. Politics needs to be kept out of this shit, and probably the armed forces need to take up this task.

4. Foreign intelligence should be pulled in if we don't have the know-how -- if we do, then not necessary.

But certainly, the government should make every effort to uncover this this time. To the death of it, and not wait to arrest people 10 to 15 years later and think they have done a great thing.

I also think that they should start taking the help of the common man more.
All these hostages, foreign and Indian, need to be debriefed for any and all clues about the militants, before they are sent into happiness to their respective homes.

Enough of CSI, Mumbai!

(on competition) note to a

you should step into our shoes
to know and feel what it is like
(maybe you already know)
trying to keep half your life away
from people
you are sharing your one whole life with

my hip and my lung
as my mother puts it

to see anger on their faces on some days
and happiness on others
and not know what it is about
(both ways)

(to not share some of the greatest things you have done)
(to not let them be proud of you)
(both ways)

sometimes to see them only on weekends (or in midsleep)
(when you live with them)
and not know what it is about
(both ways)

don't be overly hateful and harm yourself by
questioning loyalty
questioning good common sense
that they have shown for so many years
or help them understand you
by citing examples
so they truly understand
and not hate themselves and hate you

of course they are loyal
they chose didn't they?
trust, shouldn't you?
not use strangers as pawns to question?

also, don't deprive us of
knowledge sharing
to a limited extent, really it's not
going to do you any harm
or me
one world, one life, one city, one
market, one house, one common interest

allow me to share with my friends
my own experiences and hardships
so when they take on greater roles
they can handle it with a calm
that i never could

they have been there for me
for the toughest work period of my life
don't deprive me of
being there for them

be bigger, stronger, fitter, happier
or you'll do more harm than good

this is friendly advice

in the expert’s mind there are few.”

You've got me girl on the run around run around
You've got me all around town
You've got me girl on the run around
And its getting me down, getting me down
Lady if you want to find a lover
Then you look no further
For I'm gonna be your only
Searching at the start of the season
And my only reason
Is that i'll get to you
I'll find some way of connection
Hiding my intention
Then i'll move up close to you
I'll use you and i'll confuse you
And then i'll lose you
Still you wont suspect me

"it's pure physics love"

i have finally understood
from your
perspective why we
can't be together
it took me long
but i understood

know that i love you
to death
and there will always
and i will always
think of you
with a certain fondness
with simplicity

i like you
irrespective of loving you
i like you
the person you are
the things you stand for
your passion
the way you look at things
and care for them

how you try to consider
1001 variables
to be constant
to always be constant

it's pure physics love
it's pure physics, love
love, it's pure physics
physics? it's pure love

v, this is for you

for v and s

We are not enemies, but friends...though passion may have
strained it must not break our bonds of affection.
