Acknowledging a problem is the beginning



Make a beginning - Admit it!!


If there is a problem, accept it, don't live in denial. acknowledging a problem, an issue is the biggest challenge we face as humans. Because we all like to live in denial, in a dream land, that every things fine, all is well. I kinda started getting irritated with the slightest remark of "eh chill, allz well yaar". or "oh common, we are always looking at the negative side, we are a young nation, dont always look up, look beneath you" 


Oh common!! We are getting it all wrong, topsy turvy, we are in such a deep muddle that we arent realizing that the CWG is going to crumble, i mean i never said it wont take off, but what if players/athletes dont turn up, people from the international community boycott us. Would that make us rise and take notice, say yes, there was a problem. 


Shri Shri Ravishankar said this long back, "If there is a situation in life, we first need to acknowledge it, that is the beginning." 


Living in denial is the stupidest thing we could do, it doesn't make us bad or something, but it makes us stupid. What are we gaining out of it.. when we keep saying, oh no, these things keep happening, oh this is nothing, you see what a show we shall put up. When, the reality is there for all to see. So, who is it that is looking stupid here, its the person or people or group who is DENYING or Defying a problem.


Lets begin, lets acknowledge, that yes, i have a problem, We are in a SITUATION, a bad one!! That makes us look for a solution immediately. 


So if you guys screwed up, which you obviously did, Mr CWG's Babu's ... start immediately by saying, yes, we admit it, we now want to do somthing about it, you see there will be help from all corners, MNC's international sports authorities , individuals, everyones going to join you. Unless you do so, Babu's,, there is NO HOPE AT ALL...
Amen

Latest Table Top Favourite CWG

Ab bhi jiska khoon na khaula, woh khoon nahi woh paani hai, jo desh ke kaam na aya, woh bekaar jawaani hai.. as we Read Another DISASTER about the CWgames,, its become like a daily joke, another table top discussion. can the common man do anything to save the face of the nation? We all knew that we had INTEGRITY issues as a nation, but this is an eye opener..alls not tat well and India is certainly NOT SHINNING NOW..


I put this up as my status message this morning. I just couldnt help but open my FB early in the morning, which i normally never. What else can we do? what else has the Indian Public done before, Become CITIZEN/s journalists, carry out rallies, protest, dharnas, what else? This has gone too far. I have no words to express my disappointment, once again over my COUNTRY. Why is it so difficult for us to handle things with integrity. Cant we put up a clean, great show, remember Beijing' just last year or maybe a few years back. 


Whom are we fooling? when we say things like India's shinning and we are an emerging super power, gosh, there is no greater day dreamer than us. Friends of mine living abroad, tell me that India is shinning and how the world sees it as a super power, well, sure they do, but then, why are you still living abroad, still enjoying boat rides on Thames? still going to Paris for your new years, still visiting New Zealand for your vacation? COme back, live here, its easy to sit there and comment.


Well, i drifted as usual didnt i?? (Its their choice, i know:))


The point is.............. Well, there is none....... We have done it again,, there will be a new line added to American or British slang/Lingo.. "oh, did you pull an India again" 
I really hope that doesn't happen.. it wont happen, India will Muddle through this Games too. And then awards will be given to the officials for some great work on the CWG. "What a show we put up". 
The same newspapers which carried reports about the mishaps, the same channels which made a fool of all concerned officials and politicians will be running after the same fools to get Sound  BYTES on, wow, how did you pull that off, in spite of us ruining it from the beginning? how did you organise such an awesome show... We will have Bollywood biggies shake a leg at some functions of theirs, we ll have the ambanis and the royalties congratulate the government and then this will soon be forgotten. 


Public memory is so short. The same channels will be showing the great games live and sports channels will make a hell lota money, and it will go on. Like the Legendary actor-director, Raj Kapoor said, "The show must GO on" ..


In India the same show goes on and on.. I miss Gandhiji a lot these days.. What will he have done if he was there today? Gone on another fast? Gone on another Satyagraha? Wonder if he would have any buyers for that today? For how would we have found the time to join him, he didnt do all of that alone, he had the country with him. But sadly today, out of the little time we find for ourselves, where is the time for a Gandhi? 


So, as already stated, the Future is Bright and India is truly SHINNING.. and shinning in its own glory, bragging about its own accomplishments.. Dont know what comes out of these blogs and tweets and status messages, but we write on, we have hope. 


Suddenly another thought, Would Gandhiji have hung his head in shame???

i bought myself some organisational skill

Day before yesterday, during the weekend, i did some great work. I was wondering why i didnt do this before. Now, i get to organise my work, i get to jot down pointers in meetings, i look like i am doing some serious work. Now you must be wondering what i bought. I bought a Dairy.. yes not a dairy milk choclate ofcourse, but i bought the other diary, the one which looks fancy and looks like you are the most organised person around!! that one.

Yes!!! In just two days of his company and i am so much more systematic. Wow! now i know why all ceo's have that fancy little notebook with them inspite of having a personal secratary.

We do so many things in one day these days, that it helps to have a reminder, ofcourse the phone does that, but having a dairy is a different ball game. No, i am not a salesman, i just happened to discover something so basic and simple yet profound. I love you, my new dairy. :)
