Ill last week, I Came to the office in the morning and it felt as if my head is tightly packed in a machine and forced from all the sides enough now, n ready to be filed.. thats what we used to do. Take a job and to file it we used to fit it in a stand, metallic stand with two jaws that used to to crush the job , that was way back during SUPW.
So I left early, was hardly able to drive on the busy streets of pune, a bike I just missed touching while a passerby looked in amusement wondering my driving skills,to the true tradition of pune he might have uttered something in his mind but who cared..
The trups of phagosites gathered to fight against the alien virus.. the gift from the common men affected with common cold, these vireus travel thrugh air or thrugh handshakes :)
so it was onset of another of those battles.. I had seen those so many of the times.. I always wonder why only humans require doctors, In fact we should be wise enough to treat small ailments
of these kind.. I look at some sick cat or dog and all I recall is they refraining from eating anything in illness, I questioned this to one doc and his answer was understandable enough.. when u r sick why ask you body to pay attention to metabolic activity like digestion.. body anyways has reserves.. insted eat something like glucose or electral that will help body fight better.. let it win the battle of its own, all u can do is assist it with good weapons like glucose
Its spirituality and all that, that wonders like a buch of honeybees in my head when I have fever, In fact i sometimes feel that these are some of the states of minds which are very concentrated, no doubt some good singer concentrate well after taking alcohol..
I felt the phagosites, with the armour of glucose that they wore.. and the Enegrgetic bubbles of oxygen pumped in thrugh the alveoli .. basking these phagosite.. I felt them running aourd killing the enemy .. hours now n then.
Late evening it felt perspiring.. the battlefield is hot.. need to be cooled now, some guy called hypothalamus has that ability to sense the temparature..
a Complex strucutre our body is.. And I have won the battle, as usual. All the virus like abhimannyu.. get inside the complex chakravyuha to die.

The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam's Speech in Hyderabad.
Why is the media here so negative?
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our
achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success
stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan, he has transferred the tribal village into a
self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements
but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters.
I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the
day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The
Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a
Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an
orchid and a granary.
It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of
killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among
In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime. Why are we
so NEGATIVE? Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with
foreign things? We want foreign T. Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want
Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that
self-respect comes with self-reliance? I was in Hyderabad giving this
lecture, when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her
what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed India
For her, you and I will have to build this developed India. You must
proclaim. Indiais not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed
nation. Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.
Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is
YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke,
The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.
YOU say, say and say. What do YOU do about it?
Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give him a name - YOURS. Give him a
face - YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International
best. In Singaporeyou don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in
the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground links as they are. You
pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim
Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the
parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a
restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity... In
Singaporeyou don't say anything, DO YOU? YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public
during Ramadan, in Dubai. YOU would not dare to go out without your
head covered in Jeddah. YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the
telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds ( Rs.650) a month to, 'see to it
that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else.'YOU would not dare to
speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washingtonand then tell the traffic cop,
'Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son.
Take your two bucks and get lost.' YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut
shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australiaand
Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo? Why don't YOU use
examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston??? We are still
talking of the same YOU. YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign
system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers
and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can
be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you
be the same here in India?
Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay, Mr.
Tinaikar, had a point to make. 'Rich people's dogs are walked on the
streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,' he said.
'And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the
authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect the
officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the
pressure in his bowels?
In Americaevery dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job.
Same in Japan . Will the Indian citizen do that here?' He's right. We go to
the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility.
We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do
everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect
the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage
all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick a up a stray piece of
paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean
bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms.
We want Indian Airlines and Air Indiato provide the best of food and
toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity.
This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to
the public. When it comes to burning social issues like those related to
women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing room
protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse? 'It's the
whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my
sons' rights to a dowry.' So who's going to change the system?
What does a system consist of ? Very conveniently for us it consists of our
neighbours, other households, other cities, other communities and the
government. But definitely not me and YOU. When it comes to us actually
making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with
our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far
away and wait for a Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a
majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away.
Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their
glory and praise their system. When New Yorkbecomes insecure we run to
England. When Englandexperiences unemployment, we take the next flight out
to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and
brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and rape
the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is
mortgaged to money.
Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a great
deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too.... I am echoing J.
F. Kennedy's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians.....
'ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA
AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE INDIA
WHAT AMERICAAND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE TODAY'
Lets do what Indianeeds from us.

Pakistan ka matlab kya, la ilahi illalla.. Jitega bhai jitega Hindustan Jitega, Ganapati bappa morya.. for 6hrs that we were in the zayed stadium on 19th to watch the second ODI, the atmosphere was terbulant with all the slogans shouted by the supporters, all the merriment and color.. evening breeze, bright lights and waving flags.
Yes I could manage as it was day night and we took a taxi from etihad office to the stadium. India Elected to bat and good to see sehwag back in the form, sorry to miss the century of the captain. At the end of the day it was a sweet victory for india.
Lot of indians and Pakistani's here in the middle east. Indian are either workers (most of them keralites) and officers while most of the pakis are taxi drivers here and Dubai.
The stadium is good, the good thing is most of these things are maintained well.. I remember the Kridanagari at Hinjewadi pune, even that is good, but its been maintained so bad, once I happen to go on the velodrum and saw cracks on the cement, the tennis stadium was not used and had shoulder high grass :)
In fact the roads and everything is 'maintained' well. Its not that back in india they dont have things which are here (excepting good roads ;) but we dont maintain it good. Its easy to get to the top but difficult to remain there..
real estate is doing good here, the burz dubai thats coming up is going to be the tallest tower displacing Taipei and petronaz.
my morning start at 5.30 (I remember my school morning..) and I take breakfast at 6.20, Its so because the air is so dry, it starts to be warm at 7.00 , thank god its still not summer (which starts in Jun July..when I'll be back home, and mansoons will arrive..)
Nothing great to visit than work for last 2 weeks, going to dinners at 'bhavna' or 'Sangeetha' or 'Anand' restaurants. Today my site went live, thing to celbrate for me! but its in stages and the GO LIVE will end after 2 weeks. got a 6 MP cam (Sony DSCw30) for some 1200 dirhams and its taking some good pics, tried few and added at http://photos.yahoo.com/pradipkachare
Hope to visit Dubai coming weekend
