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!

love, marriage, journey….INDIA.


Let’s start with something which i never did before, i asked my Friend from Ethiopia to write her journey to India, and how her life got changed and moved.
She is working with me in my office; she is intelligent and very sweet and easy-going women.
She married an Indian and that where her journey to India begins. Her first experience in India started with her marriage to an Indian and then to the airport where she saw women in saree and was surprised to see a huge women in saree as well as the old women too though she loved it, but at the same time, in her country no one is allowed to show off her stomach.
The changing weather was also a part of her experience, as far as Delhi is concern.
Delhi is extremely hot during summer and extremely cold during winter. And this year Delhi is freezing.
She loved many things about Delhi starting from its food to metro but with few bad experiences as well on the card, we can’t blame one particular person for that.

Lets start with metro, she like the method of transportation though but she noticed something which made her go made and that is when an old lady or old man came in the train and standing and the younger people are just sitting and not even bothered to offer them sit. Particularly, even this is actually not acceptable.

WEDDING DHAMAL OF INDIA: Recently she went to a family function, one of her husband cousin was getting married, and she was so touched by all the function, culture of India, so colorful, so bright…
And off course one of the best thing about Delhi is food……

Food is just amazing specially the varieties of sweet and dessert Indian offers.
Starting from Bengali rasgulla to ‘jalebi”.. All just Mouth watering…

And most interesting thing she noticed was that a man is cooking outside not the women. And she always asks me this question why women can’t cook outside and work.

i have no answer to that, though i found that funny…as we are used to this trend.

She hates the loud noise of the transportation. Every one is in the rush every time no one has broken the horn and everything else it is like the horn is attached to the escalator they don’t stop top making a noise every ware you go it is the same. the people don’t give a chance for a walkers its like in reveres first a car the a bike and then a three-wheeler then a rickshaw then a person, that is how goes it should be in the other way around.

Other than that i saw rickshaw for the first time it is manual labor but i admire the creation of work. India is full of surprises for her.Here is for today’s blog, her experience, her expectation. To sum up India is a wonderland for her.
She is happily married and working with us..

Sach….in….Kambli …. out


Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He is the leading run-scorer and century maker in Test and one-day international cricket. He is the only male player to score a double century in the history of ODI cricket.

Tendulkar was an integral part of the Cricket World Cup winning Indian team at the later part of his career, his first such win in six World Cup appearances for India.

Tendulkar is the first and the only player in Test Cricket history to score fifty centuries, and the first to score fifty centuries in all international crickets combined; he now has 99 centuries (48 ODI & 51 Test cricket) in international cricket.

Tendulkar has been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan award, India’s second highest civilian award, and the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratnaaward, India’s highest sporting honour. Tendulkar became the first sportsperson and the first person without an aviation background to be awarded the honorary rank of Group Captain by the Indian Air Force and many more achievement & awards.

Sachin Tendulkar on 8th Nov achieved another milestone as he became the first cricketer in the history of the game to cross 15,000-run mark in Test cricket.

Playing in his 182nd match, Tendulkar reached the mark on the third day of the first Test against the West Indies when he scored his 28th run in India’s second innings with a single off leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo.

After crossing the coveted milestone, the batting maestro looked up at the heavens and acknowledged the standing ovation given by his teammates from the dressing room as his partner Rahul Dravid congratulated him.

The West Indian players also came up after the completion of the over to congratulate the iconic batsman.

Tendulkar was 35 runs short of 15,000 before this match and he scored seven in the first innings before being adjudged leg-before off Fidel Edwards.

With a 14,422 capacity crowd cheering him, Tendulkar, who came in at the fall of Virender Sehwag’s wicket when the team total was 95 for two, played cautiously with India needing 276 runs to win the match.

He hit just two fours after facing 76 balls to reach 28. The 38-year-old Tendulkar, the world’s most prolific batsman, now needs just one hundred to complete a historic 100 international tons. He has scored 51 Test tons and 48 ODI hundreds.

Rahul Dravid, who was batting at the other end with Tendulkar, is the second highest run-getter in Tests with 12,859 runs while Australian Ricky Ponting is third on the list with 12487 runs.

In a recent time, city has seen lot of changes in terms of development. The city will soon see a new bird THE BIG STORE; recently I saw a hoarding outside ERA MALL (impressive hoarding) . This store seems to be very promising, it coming up with new concept “India’s First compact hyper market on LED Light and Eco-friendly store”. We have started to see LED light in cars and its going to be quiet interesting to see a store with the same concept The Big store will be offering almost all kind of categories starting from groceries to shoes to electronics. Everything under one roof and they claim that nothing would be on MRP. They are giving the perception of saving money for everyone.
Hope This New Concept will bring A NEW and BRIGHT future for Meerut.
