After Colonial rule retaliation, it's Sachin that Connects INDIA!!!!

Sixty years back there was a time when every Indian had an aim in their mind to over throw the British Empire out of the country and to get their land back where they can lead a peaceful life ahead. This insatiable appetite of all the Indians around really forced the ANGREZ RAAZ to return. That retaliation against the foreign rule made each and every Indian united, irrspective to the caste, creed, colour and status.
That solidarity, unity and the consolidated voice of many for a cause was the last sign of the collective behaviour of all the Indians from North to South and East to West. That Retaliation, that Force and the victorious smile made every body ONE.
The same force, the same zeal and the same smile was once again visualised by me on the faces of many who were coming across me. and that was all because of the Master Blaster which our soil produced approx 36 years and 10 months before. SACHIN was the name that was on the lips of every Indian, was in the conversation of every one and in every language spoken. Every body was elated and at the same was a bit astonished that how come such an ordinary ODI was converted into a Historic battle ground which witnessed a spellbounded innings. 200 not out of 147 balls, this itself shows the temprament and the caliber of the person who was playing.
This inning actually brought the people together,networks for the several minutes were jammed, the conversations on the phones were disturbing but still every body was sharing his/her's share of happiness with the other person. All divisions of the caste, colour and creed was forgotton for quiet some time and every body was Flaunting to be an INDIAN just because of that 5 foot 5 inch Mammoth.

Flaunting INDIAness- A Crime????

India- A Secular State, allows everybody a space to live in, to flourish, welcomes each and every citizen from any part of the world with warmth, then why a fuss is to be created if an Indian speaks that??
Shah Rukh Khan(SRK) in an interview displayed his Indian Warmth towards the Pakistani Players and showed his disappointment for their oust and participation in the IPL. This interview was the starting point of the disasterous situations faced by SRK. The next day posters were teared off, effigies of SRK were charred and anti - SRK slogans were in the air and were pronounced by the Shiv sena protestors.
I dont want to discuss what all things were said and replied by SRK and Shiv Sena respectively but what really affected me as an Indian was, the protest of such a magnitude which was raised only because a person presented his views in open and that is really appaling.
It means we as an Indian should not feel free for speaking our mind out in open. Otherwise we could be pulled into a scandal and can be asked to appologise. This states that we have lost THE RIGHT OF INDIVIDUALITY.
Chanting slogans, disrupting traffic, burning effigies, tearing posters etc if these are the ways of presenting your views or your resentment then it is pathetic and Insane. In our country every body has the right to speak what he/she wants to say. Every body has the honour to oppose the views of others and to enter into a discussion but it should not be done by taking law into the hands and by hampering the Business of the other person. A peaceful talk is intelligence, a face to face discussion is healthy and it can be followed only if the EGOS of both the parties are subdued.
Through this SRK/Shiv-Sena clash it is reflected that Speaking your heart out in public is dangerous and it can juxtapose you to several threatning components of society.
But should we get scared of such instances and keep our pitch low or should we show our solidarity by still chatting out our views in public?????

I have Made My Mind and displayed the Views....... Now The Choice is Your's!!!!

Amazing Human Spirit, breaking all Odds!!!!

Its the last day of the year and in the hospitality industry its the pinnacle of the booming business time. This day is the longest day which really lasts long(walk the talk), people even after pain in their muscles dont forget to transmitt smiles to the guest and tries their best to camouflage their pain n display warmth.
I personally saw this rare display of human nature and was awestuck. This was the actual display of mettle which rest of the people in their lives talk about but i witnessed it this time. Their dedication towards the work was fantabulous and in short it was the palpable display of warmth.
Even after working for twenty hours at a strech with each and every muscled put into action as soon as the clock ticked 00:00 AM , all their pain flew off, the worry of the stressful work was vanished and they joined their tone of cheerfulness with thousands of other people gathered out there.
It was phenomenon. And as soon the real spark of the Clock entering the New 365 days doused off the people were back to their work of presenting the Malted Drinks and the Freshly made eatables to the party enjoying people out there.
Such a tremendous display of switching back to the proffession after a spark of enjoyment on a night which really attracts you for its hip hop and fashionable magnetic attraction is phenomenon and Fantastic. Heads Off............

There is always a learning from these Professionals...... Because Learning Is Growth and Growth Is Life!!!!
