Jago Aur Jagaao, Bharatvasi!! 1316

Last two weeks back we were all set to travel and excited to go to Singapore for our summer vacation. I even planned to come back and write all about my travel experience and the place. We boarded the flight and were eager to visit the place which is a famous spot for Indians to visit. We did go through travels and our schedule was planned for all the days we were staying in Singapore and Malaysia. We visited all the various entertainments and buildings that we could see and came back home to India after 8 days. Usually, I like to write immediately when I have an idea, or in this case when I am back from a trip. But, after I was back from Singapore, I could not write anything about the place.

No! Do not mistake me. Not that the place had nothing to write. Singapore is a lovely place which is worth visiting and definitely worth writing about. But I could not! The day I landed in Singapore, I began to observe and feel the difference like all other Indians. The very moment we realize is the scarcity of water. I felt ashamed of the way we take advantage of all the resources we have in India. India is no less.

I know some of you may disagree, but I beg to differ because for me India is a beautiful country. We too have those tall buildings, malls, water parks, amusement parks and IT parks. What’s more, is our interesting culture, talented people. Yet there is a world of difference between us and Singapore.

Despite the similarities, we lack so many things. The major difference is the negligence of order and discipline within us, disrespect to one another, carelessness, impatience and disrespect to law and rules.

It is easier to blame an authority and skip away from our misdoings but it takes a lot of courage to stand up to our mistakes and correct them. Every person I met was polite, friendly and respectful in Singapore. Be it the rules that make them be nicer to one another or it’s just the way they are! One should admire and develop such an attitude. Attitude is what matters.

The day I landed back in my home city and was waiting for a Taxi to take us home, we stood in the queue waiting. A man from nowhere just ignored all the people standing in the line and went front to catch a taxi. I observed him to be well established, educated man returning from the United States. I am sure this man followed every rule while he stayed in the US, but the moment he is back in India, he did not care for anyone or any rules. A big scuffle began and finally, he had to go back in the line. Yes, we do not have strict rules, law and many lawmakers are under the influence of crime. If education is one of our social problems, the educated make no effort in acting like one.

However, our country is in our own hands. India is one of the most free country than any other. We have better facilities which we are either blind to see or ignore while we misuse our resources to a great extent. The change should happen within ourselves. Show respect and be respected. Follow rules for your personal safety and well-being. Do not depend on someone else to come and make the changes, because if everyone thinks that, the change can never happen. The day may not be far when we are thrown with hefty fines for simple mistakes and it may be too late to make changes.

I request everyone to think and begin today. Do not neglect thinking what one person can change. Because if everyone starts any one single thing, it is a million effort. Kindly do not laugh and ignore.

Yes, I started some of the little changes I could do myself and I hope that some day, people come here and tell me “Wow! India and Indians are so awesome, and I would give anything to live here” Of course many already say it, but we are still a long way to go and make our country the best.

PS: We have many social problems such as the poverty, education, high population and so on. It is every citizen responsibility to help in eradicating these issues and not just blame the situation.

Dating is cooler than a Relationship….Do you think so?? 1036

I am 101 % every one of you is going to agree with me on this – Dating is quite fun!! As it involves meeting new people, exploring new places with your gf/bf, the excitement of a new bond, those butterflies in the stomach. But during all this, somewhere deep down lays a sense of insecurity. Insecurity of losing your special someone because dating is not synonyms to the relationship. Where relationships have the commitment, dating doesn’t follow any such decree.

One of the most significant reasons that make dating cooler than relationships is commitment. It’s not easy to not make a connection and still be together. Many people think that settling down or being in a relationship can be boring, actually, they consider it as ‘Old school’. But you know what, if you never come under this league, perhaps, you will never experience the beauty of being in a relationship.

Relationships are not meant to be boring! In fact, being in a relationship makes your life beautiful and evolves you into a better individual.

Below are few reasons that’ll make you wonder how being in a relationship makes you a better person!

  1. A Relationship Rejuvenates You

Love is a very powerful feeling it makes us do things for others which we wouldn’t do for ourselves. A relationship changes you in a better person, your partner brings out the best in you. With your partner’s love and affection, they turn you into a better individual. Being in a relationship fills you with new hopes and aspirations.

  1. It changes your Attitude towards life

When single we usually only think about ourselves, act stubborn and resentful towards people and situations. But being in a relationship makes us think rationally and lowers down our ego and arrogance. It also invokes the sense of responsibility and a better understanding of life which we generally lack.

  1. You Start Feeling Good

The best part of being in a relationship is you start feeling happy and good about everything around. There is no space for stress or reasons to be depressed as two of you are always there to support each other and work towards the happiness of one another. Here, I would like to mention that this is the case of positive relations which are not forced.

  1. You Learn to Adjust

Every relationship demands adjustment, compromise, and sharing. When you get involved with someone the first thing which happens is you start adjusting according to your partners likes and dislikes. Slowly you start sharing your living space, you start making plans together and what not. being in a relationship teaches you how to express your love and care and how to keep your partners needs first.

  1. You Explore new things

The plus point of being in a relationship is your world expands, by this I mean you get to know about new things from you from a partner. You develop new likes and hobbies. You get exposed to a different kind of music, movies and if you both like reading then, books too ;). You also get a brand-new family and set of friends and cousins to hang out with.

  1. You feel Strong

Difficulties are part of life, we all face ups and downs, difficult situations in our lives. But having a partner by your side gives you the strength to fight any battle of life. Knowing that your partner has your back will give you the courage to go through any circumstances and come out with more positivity and belief that with that your partners help you can fight anything and everything

All relationships go through hell, only the real ones get through It …So, no matter how many girls or boys you have dated, there’ll come a time when you’ll realize the meaning of settling down with that special someone!

What Nirbhaya wants to appeal today for Praduman!! 4543

They ripped my body…

They ripped my dignity…..

They ripped my dreams…..

They ripped my life…………..and they are still alive…!!

If you remember me I am Nirbhaya, a girl who was brutally raped and left to die on 16th December’12’s night. I know it’s an old story now but I am here today because my soul is in pain and tormented once again…

I am suffocated, flustered and frightened too with news of Praduman brutally murdered and a little girl of 5yrs raped in their respective schools with in three days. My intestines were pulled outside my body and his throat was slit wide open….Oh Gosh!! You can’t imagine the pain and fear….Dictionary doesn’t and cannot have a word to describe what we went through..!

Okay, you said I was out for a movie at night… I was wrong and it was my mistake etc etc but I want to ask you today was Praduman also wrong in using a washroom of his school?? Was that little girl in a school uniform was wrongly dressed and out at a wrong time??

Please answer me……this goes to all those who are sitting on administrative chairs and are just concerned about how to remain seated on those positions forever. My question is to the lawmakers, to the ministers, to the officers….to the PM of this country.

Why can’t you frighten these monsters these devils like they frightened us? Me, Praduman…..&…&…

Yes, they frightened us to the extent that our souls are still trembling. Traumatize them…torture them as they did to us.

Where are you, the honorable human rights people?? Why don’t you stand with my and their and each such parent who has lost everything in their lives with us?

When you say ‘Human Rights’ its is for humans not for these demons. NO rapists have human rights…..

Give tortures ..give them trauma to the extent that each man with such sick mentality should get a shiver before even thinking of any such crime. Scare their souls…scare them to the hell…Do it NOW..NOW!

You named me…Nirbhaya(one who never fears)…let me tell you today…I was scared..really scared and I am scared today also. I am scared for each fellow girl…for each child out there…I am scared!

You made me celebrity over night. You named funds after me. No need of all this, if you really want to do something make your laws strict & deadly for rapists and molesters. No one should dare to touch anybody without his/her consent. Make my country safe for all women…for little ones. PLEASE!

Do what Yemen administration did to a child rapist and murderer. Punish them publicly…punish them as brutally as they were with us. It is my last appeal to you people.

Do it for me…for Praduman..for….for….

Do it so that there will be no more Nirbhayas and Pradumans…EVER!
