Don’t know how this war will get a full-stop…


We People talk about humanity, unity and equality and peace.

But we are the same people who destroy everything with our action every day.

The biggest example of humanity disaster is happening in Syria.

Fighting between forces loyal to President Bashar Assad and members of the Free Syrian Army continue in Syria. 

From more than year back this civil war got started and it’s like never ending war. Every day we hear one or the other news for the same.

From CNN news to BCC news everyday there is millions for news “-99 people were shot down”, “66 people are injured”, “women survivors of sexual violence and abuse”..

The U.N. estimates that Syria’s crackdown has killed more than 7,500 people so far.

Western diplomats are now warning that Syria is on the brink of all-out civil war and that this would be likely to “morph into a proxy war in the region”. This could have wider economic ramifications and in particular interact with the Euro zone crisis in ways that are under-discussed in the UK.

A Syrian civil war could well draw in the following countries either directly or as sponsors of one or other parties in the conflict.

The most obvious are Iran, Lebanon, Kurdish Iraq, and Turkey.

And the Syrians, having involved themselves in the Jordanian civil war in 1970 might find that what goes around comes around.

But this entire crisis is majorly affecting the normal citizen.

Even women and children are the major victim of the disaster.

Women are facing the problem from sexual violence and abuse.

International Rescue Committee teams to assess humanitarian needs and to provide emergency medical care, shelter and other aid to refugees who are camped out on the Syrian border in frigid winter temperatures. IRC experts on women’s protection will join these teams shortly and will provide assistance to women survivors of sexual violence and abuse.

Syria launched a long-anticipated assault to crush the opposition in the rebellious north, bombarding its main city with tank shells from all sides and clashing with rebel fighters struggling to hold back an invasion.

President Bashar Assad rejected any immediate negotiations with the opposition, striking a further blow to already staggering international efforts for talks to end the conflict. Assad told U.N. envoy Kofi Annan that a political solution is impossible as long as “terrorist groups” threaten the country.

Don’t know how this war will get a full-stop.

Will this ever gone get end…will this civil war will end on peace or bring bigger disaster?

SATYAMEV JAYATE…. CRY TO SMILE….. :-)


I don’t watch much TV as most of time I m in office or whenever I  get time, I only stick to Star Movies or HBO and Music channel . But last few Sundays, it was an expection case,  I made an attempt and cut short my normally very long Sunday shopping and outing with friends  to be back home in time for Aamir Khan’s show  Satyamev Jayate.

I was curious. This man always delivers something different. What is it that he has done now. The effort was worth it.  I sat through the full show, and the first thoughts were: Aamir has stolen a march, not only over all other actors who have done senseless TV shows in order to reach out to the considerable, and growing, TV audience, but perhaps even the tribe called journalists.

It was different and yest a reality mixture of emotion and drama like all other shows, but some of the shots, especially when the lady describes how her husband pounced on her and bit her face like an animal, and the picture that followed, were unbelievable. There were also some startling revelations such as those doctor who revealed that sex determination tests were actually started by the government in its hospitals in the 70s, but realisation dawned later on how it could be misused. So much for our trained officialdom and their ‘forward looking’ policy making abilities!

Female foeticide is a serious pan-India problem and healthcare is a state subject. India has a shortage of 100,000 doctors and the perpetrators of these heartless crimes are spread over the big cities and 600,000 villages of India. It is not an issue you play ducks and drakes with.

It is not a show which only creates awareness. They want to see the result .

Sure, there were phases in the show when the reactions seemed contrived or even preachy, but the sincerity of effort was palpable, concerns seemingly so genuine, that it seemed completely acceptable.

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is uber media savvy, possessing just the right ersatz tear for every conceivable human anguish. On his just-launched Sunday programme, it was obvious that he has mastered the art of ruse, as billions with a penchant for reality-TV fell hook, line and sinker for those lachrymose tear-ducts.

We all now wait to see what are the other topics that follow. Although promos have been around, if the first episode is any indication, it is difficult to predict what they might really contains. Actually, I am ok with this suspense. My only hope and wish is that the momentum and the huge expectations that the first episode has generated is not lost for not often have we had a film star with a huge following devoting time to issues of genuine national concern!
