    A quick review – Visit to Batam, Indonesia 

    Earlier last month, I was in Batam, a tiny Island right next to Singapore. This was my first visit to the Island nation of Indonesia. In this video I have captured the essence of the place. But, then my opinions are biased 😀

    Chennai Rail 

    MRTS Train station in Chennai

    Image via Wikipedia

    In couple of years time, Chennai city will join select band of cities which will operate 4 different types of intra-city rail network. Currently city has the conventional broad gauge train, it covers the as well as the entire metropolitan area. The second format is again an broad gauge train however the difference is it’s completely on an elevated platform, locals call it ‘parakkum rail’ (Flying rail ). Third is Metro Rail, it’s currently under construction, it’s expected to add the newage and hi-tech dimension to Chennai’s transport network, the first phase is expected to be functional in 2013. And now two days ago the new government has approved a mono rail project, that again will add to the megacities transport needs. Unlike other metroes in India, Chennai has always been a step ahead in terms of thinking long term and providing multiple modes of transport for the citizens.

    Road network is still a mess though, I hope in coming years we will have broader roads which will support traffic at high speeds and host best of the safety features.

    Chennai is fast emerging as one of the busiest cities in Asia, already nick named as ‘The Detroit of Asia’ infrastructure and transportation is extremely important for the city to do well in the long run. The government seems to be making the right moves.

    Personally, I would want to see chennai become one of the best in the world, atleast during my lifetime. The people of this city deserve it. And it’s so very pleasing to know that things are moving in the right direction. Big yyyaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy to ‘singara’ Chennai.

    My Chennai, Singara Chennai 

    Chennai city is home to about 10 million people, which makes it one of the most crowded cities in India. Like most megacities chennai faces host of issues, Poverty, medical facilities, drinking water, electricity, drainage etc. On top of that, Chennai is the least green city in India, only a measly 4.5% is vegetated, rest is all concrete and that’s is scary truth. Luckily, the civic authorities have finally woken up to the situation, over the last 2 years the mayor and a popular ruling party leader [ thanks to their numerous trips to Bejjing, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai etc ] have brought things under their watch. Many a parks have come up, Adyar poonga’s first phase was completed, a botancial park was thrown open, Marina beach is getting a face lift and finally an enthusiastic project of planting 1 lakh saplings is underway. The project is expected to increase the green cover of Chennai by at least 5%, not enough however, a decent start.

    Chennai has historically sported a trashy image for its lack of hygiene. This is slowly set to change thanks to some ambitious plans laid out by the civic authorities. What’s good is that these plans are translating into reality. Slow start however, the government deserves a big thumbs up on this.

    I like Corruption 

    last week  Anna Hazare, social activist went on a hunger strike unto death to protest against the perennial delays in the enactment of Jan lokpal ( Anti-corruption ) bill. [ There were several other issues. I’m sorry, I am not sure about the details, please look up over google for more dope ].

    After few days of high voltage action, Government of India agreed to all his Terms & Conditions and he called of his strike. This movement is hailed as one of the most significant one’s in modern day India. However, I’m not too pleased with this fight against corruption.

    Firstly, we Indians need to accept the fact that the very reason why India is growing at the rate of knots and creating huge buzz in the  global markets is purely due to the corruption in this nation. Imagine if we were not corrupt, India would have been a closed economy, most of us here would have been jobless, no FDI, no FII, no international links, no surge in manufacturing and services sector. People like me would have been farming ( not in farmville but real farms ).

    We need to appreciate the power of corruption which is the real driving force of our economy. without that my Incredible India would have been mere a shadow of its current self. Thanks to power and money hungry politicians they successfully opened up India’s economy ( Only partially ) which changed the entire landscape of our economy, millions of direct and indirect jobs were created, real estate boom, IT revolution, Telecom revolution, and many more, it has also positively impacted the agriculture sector due to the access of modern methods and technology.

    We must be proud of what our netas  have given us, what’s wrong if they swindled away few billions of dollars of tax-payers money? Look at the medium term and long term benefits. With all the corruption India is already a $4 trillion economy. why needless poke into a system which has brought success to our nation?

    I endorse corruption simply because it has worked for us. It is more of a cultural fit, it works well for us. We have the results in front of us. By trying to bring in laws against corruption it would only disturb the apple cart. Give it a thought.

        Legislature and Judiciary are independent tracks in India. Corruption in judiciary is certainly a cause of concern. Over the last few years in the battle of judiciary and legislature, stricter laws have been enforced however, that hasn’t changed corruption in the legal circuit 😀

    Ring of Fire 

    Pacific Ring of Fire

    Image via Wikipedia

    By now, we all must have seen the clippings of massive Tsunami waves ripping apart Japan. In 2004, there was a similar quake in S.E.Asia which killed close to 0.25 million people. After watching todays visuals, I couldn’t help re-collecting the conversation I had with my dad after that 2004 quake. Dad is a Geologist, and he studies rock sediments, fossils, tectonic plates, etc. We rarely have conversations related to his work, in fact I am not sure about his job profile or nature of his work. Anyways, on that day we were watching some news on that weeks Tsunami and he said. “This is just a beginning“. Lot of people say that ” Ahh,god is angry”, “End of days”, “I said so” but, this man has a scientific background and he knew exactly what he was saying based on the studies and research that has been going on for decades.

    He was trying to explain how earthquakes are generated and the physics behind it. And, then he said something very interesting which most of us may not be aware. Earth has reset itself 5 times since its inception, one of which wiped out the Dinosaurs and that was the last of the 5 factory resets.

    Ok, what is relevant is more to us is, in coming decades we’re likely to experience more of such quakes combined with Tsunami and Volcanic eruptions. The pacific belt, which is also known as “Ring of fire” will see lot more seismic activity. It’s bad news for people living in that belt especially, for folks in west half of America. LA, SF are in the firing line. It’s said that a potential killer quake is round the corner. Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, and other pacific Islands face grave danger as well [ in fact that’s been the case for ages ]. And, then he said something which made me feel better. Geological data is mapped  in millions of years [ that’s there unit of measure 😛 ]. So, we may not be around to watch the  extinction however, we will witness several major calamities in the next few decades as the tectonic activity has become stronger than before. I hope my dad’s words don’t come true simply because geological predictions are only 50% accurate 😀 [ and, they get paid for making these half predictions ]

    So be good and try to stay away from the pacific belt. If you live in that part of the world, just pray for the best.

    Enter the dragon…forget about returning 

    During the Innings break of today’s Pakistan-Sri Lanka game unlike most days I was scanning other channels. I stopped at WB films. Bruce Lee’s “Enter the dragon” had just started. I have seen this movie few times before, in fact I wanted to give it a miss tonight however, five minutes into it, my mouth was half open, I was stuck. *sheepishly smiling* I could neither move away from my seat nor flip the channel. After the first 30 minutes I had no choice, I was enslaved by this brilliant piece of Cinema.

    I was totally hooked to the Television, I some how managed to grab a pouch of potato chips and a large glass of orange juice, that’s all I remember. For the next 1 hour or so, I was teleported into Mr.Han’s Island along with Lee, Williams and Roper. Movie holds such a simple premise, it has been exploited in so many yesteryear Indian movies. Anyways, back to Bruce Lee 🙂

    The fire in his eyes, body language and the Qi flowing through his body in those dramatic action sequences, WOW! exhilarating stuff *speechless, in search of superlatives, please help me*. No other Kung-fu star has such a powerful on-screen impact as Lee. Take a bow to Mr.Bruce Lee. *bowing in awe*

    Here a few outstanding fight sequences from his movies. Watch them. Enjoy them. Treasure them.

     

    1. Way of the dragon

     

    2. Fist of Fury

     

    3. Enter the dragon

     

     

    Why don’t you share your favorite Kung-fu action sequences? that will be fun.

    Indian movies go local 

    With the turn of the Century, India and China have fast emerged as super powers. China leading the way in manufacturing and India claiming honors in Services segment. In simple terms both countries are increasingly stamping their presence across the globe.

    If you leave out the economics thing. Other chief drivers are Food and Movies. There is nothing to talk about Chinese food and their cheap kung fu moives, both have unmatched following. India isn’t far behind. Food is already big world over. In fact there are few Indian restaurants which have more branches outside than in India.

    However, what has really put us in limelight are our movies. Here are few videos which show how the world has taken to Indian Movies.

     

    An east asian dude singing away a popular hindi number at a Cantonese reality show, does a neat job.

     

    This one’s a Oscar winning song. Check out this spanish band, cool job.

     

    Check out these young girls crooning a famous bollywood song, watch out for their facial expressions. LoL

     

    We even got into the wedding parties as well, This one’s amazing.

     

    Hey, We got Aryan cousins hooked to our dance numbers, See this

    What you didn’t know about Gandhi 

    On this very day, way back in 1948 Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was shot dead. There’s no parallel to his achievements and legacy, no one comes closer to his aura.

    But you see no hero is flawless, there’s no genius without a touch of eccentricity. There’s one such facet of Gandhiji’s life which has been well masqueraded. Neither the media nor the historians seem to poke into it, maybe centuries later when he attains god like status, some silly Dan brown clone might go back digging into the past just to figure out his mortal deficiencies. Anyways, coming back to the focal point – What you didn’t know about Gandhi. Hmmm, I haven’t read much material on this but you see whatever is available online is enough to showcase this lesser known dimension of his. What you going to read may startle you simply because you might have never ever heard or read this, so stay calm.

    I will be direct, Gandhiji used to sleep with young women..ummmmm..literally. None of us were there to see what exactly happened whether he did so to satisfy his carnal needs or was it what he called ” Experiment’s with Bhramacharya” ( experiments with celibacy ). Whatever it was, it’s is nothing less than shocking. Can you imagine a man sleeping with his grandnephew’s wife and terming it as an effort to correct her sleep posture, how ridiculous ( Why would I be bothered about someone’s sleep posture, all that matters  is restful sleep. As far as I know he was a law student not medicine ). There’s very little dope available on his experiments, he even planned to publish his works. Just imagine, Gandhi’s book on so called celibacy, it would have been a best seller ( Hey bhagwaan ). His end brought curtains to his work ( which by Indian standards would have brought more shame than pride had it hit the stands ).

    Just writing all this stuff is making me feel odd. Still suspended in disbelief. I suggest you google it and read more or maybe you shouldn’t.

        ‘SAD’ bhai kaha isliye 😉

        coming to the point-
        “When Gandhi was 16 his father became very ill. Being very devoted to his parents, he attended to his father at all times during his illness. However, one night, Gandhi’s uncle came to relieve Gandhi for a while. He retired to his bedroom where carnal desires overcame him and he made love to his wife. Shortly afterward a servant came to report that Gandhi’s father had just died.”
        —I doubt the lady was his uncles wife. Actually he married to kasturba on behest of pressure by his father. The night of marriage when kasturba and Gandhi were married. His father was on death bed. (from my experiments of truth)

        @Sufia nehru-edwina lovestory is a Turning point in History. Known fact- Gandhiji was against partition but Nehru and his political ambitions and his Closeness to Edwina led to the partition. Mountbatten was appraised of the fact that INC (Indian national Congress) is in favour of partition by none other than Edwina, Who did all this for nehru.
        Also I suppose (Heard from somewhere) nehru-Edwina had a baby girl too. Though not sure how much True it’s.

        I don’t remember any school syllabus shooting down Jinnah or Iqbal..for that matter even the British..as far as I remember, school books only stated what had happened..there wasn’t any character assassination or negative propagation.

        As of the Nehru-Edwina pact ( or their love story ), totally amused. Guess the lady was charming 😀

      they didnt teach it us officially in school, just there r ways of finding out..we were just discovering the advantages of search engines when i was studying history in school (at the time there was yahoo not even google)….that and having grandparents who had witnessed the horrors of partition also helped

      Thanks Narendra! You dared to say it! if you come in touch with Marathi ppl……you will get more about Gandhi. There is always big war between followers of Gandhi and Svatantryaveer Savarkarji. we have facts and we can decide the truth. But ppl are really blind…all this is shocking i didn’t kno…only thing i knew was he helped British always…..keep this up.

        Mohini..I wrote this piece with no intention of disrespecting Gandhiji..he’s is our father of our nation..a man who could inspire millions and show them a peacefully path to freedom. Without him we both may not be enjoying this liberty today.

        Every genius is flawed so was he, but that cannot take away what he gave to this nation.

          Actually what i mean is you respect or disrespect, but first we should stop following blindly..and that;s good you raised the questions..and about independence…it will create again a diff. debate.

            When people can follow crazy mongrels…without no logic..Trust Bapu deserves much more..however, god worship is unwarranted ..he was human..
