Shame on you, Indian government!

I know that the title is pretty vast in interpretation as the Indian government is known for shaming itself on numerous accounts. But today, I'm talking about the Government of India cancelling the legitimately granted visa of Ms. Kobayashi Maya who is a survivor from the Fukushima area in Japan.

Now, I, surely believe that Nuclear power has immense benefits and the proper utilization of the same can grant us power without putting another whooping hole in the Ozone layer. But this has to come with the appropriate safety measures. Though I'm against the numerous agitations and demonstrations against the construction of a Nuclear Power Plant here in Chennai, I should clarify my stand. If someone has been granted visa legitemately and then have had it revoked purely because what they say might not please a few corporate honchos, it's about time the government went and hung itself!

Let them give everybody a chance to voice their opinion and let them take a decision that's best for the people....but then again, the Indian Government hasn't given a rat's renal area what the people want! Shame on you, Indian Government!

I got a spanking new camera!

Yep! You heard it right! I got myself a camera, people! After countless years of sufferance when I was forced to observe people who had the best tools of the light yet couldn't take a decent picture and the ones who forever seemed to think having a separate camera was silliness, I've finally managed to get myself a camera... well... technically mommy-dearest paid for it. But technically, I'll pay her back with the salary... oh whatever gives! Please put your hands together for.......
The one.... the only.... (let's forget the billion others in existence right now!).... the stupendous....(What's that you say? DSLR? Pfft... What do you take me for? The merchant with the golden eggs?)


Dancing time!

And she's a beauty, my friends! A reeeeeeeeeeal beauty! :D And every time I see my camera, I can't stop myself from giggling like a twelve year old when she's in front Edward from Twilight for instance? Just that my giggles have more reason to exist than those spent on a silly sparkly necrophiliac vampire who has no business existing!! (I would've said Fingolfin from Silmarillion... but I doubt if there are any people let alone twelve year olds who fan-girl crush on that poor bloke!)
Are you curious to know how my baby looks? Hmmmm? Hmmmmmmm? Hmmmmmmmmmmm? What's that? No? I can just jump into the sea for all you care? Awwwwww.... such love! Don't worry! I'll show you!


The front!

Isn't she a Beauty? Huh? Huh? Huuuuuuuuuuh?!!!!!!

The Back!
I'm guessing there must be more than one person out there who's most probably wondering what's got me all this excited! You have no idea how I've yearned for a camera! Oh yes, we have, preciousssss!  And another thing, just so you know, the camera in the pictures above is not technically my camera... DUH! But if my camera has an identical twin who was lost in the quintessential Kumbh Mela when it was a wee lil' girl, it would be the camera above! 

Thursday, March 8, 2012 are, good sir!

Today, I had a revelation of sorts. Today, I met a person who's managed to baffle me within five minutes of me hearing him speak. And I don't know what to make of it all!
Imagine this... this person seems to have such strongly grounded ideas about everything and some of the things he'd let out were purely unimaginably rude! And it pains me to see how skewed his perception of today's world is! I've realized, thanks to listening to him that when someone has three words to use, one should use a single word to convey the meaning.
And I personally come from a family that never boasted... ever! And being proud in whatever I do has always been an alien feeling for me. But I'm realizing that not everybody need share that philosophy. Today, this person was going on about how things were so much better and his loved ones were the ones who have done so well in life and when he knew I had people in the same field as his relatives seemed to singularly strive to find something to say that would make my point seem trivial. Seriously... it's okay! I've always known there are better people out there and so, there's no point trying to bring down another person. In the end, it only goes out to show how little I can seem when I indulge in such silliness.
Oh! art of conversation... thou art a stranger to that gentleman, aren't you?
In the end, now when I think about it, I'm happy I didn't just bite the bait and try proving him wrong. There's no point in doing that! Obviously the both of us are so very insignificant in the grand scale of things and reality is what we make of it. And the ultimate reality does not depend on what either of us thinks. Hmmm... sometimes, the best conversations are in the midst of even breaths and silence.
