Birthday celebrations are so embarrassing!!

Birthday is a day every year…. which I am sure is special to each one of us. A day on which we receive gifts and lots of hugs & kisses from our loved ones.

It is infact a special day, filled with celebrations with friends and family, but believe me, I kind of find birthday celebrations real embarrassing and accepting gifts even more uncomfortable.

On my birthdays, I like staying away from the rest of the world. No cutting the birthday cake, no gifts, no parties, for me please. I make it a point to take a casual off from office too, because it’s kind of a ritual in office to cut the birthday cake with colleagues.

People put you in the spotlight….just because it’s your birthday. No big deal…what say!!!

Life is beautiful…but I do not see birthdays as a day where you have achieved anything…….it’s just the day which comes the same day every year. Infact, it is worthier to be in the spotlight, if you have achieved your goal with your hardwork and commitment.

But yeah…..I love celebrating birthdays of my friends and family. So the reverse is applicable.

If you think you have broken our spirits……then I think you need to get a reality check.

After the terrorist attack, the best thing that has happened to us here is India, is that each citizen of this multicultural country is strongly united and we have realized the power of being united even better.

If anybody or anyone thinks that they can divide and rule in our country, then you better get a reality check done. That’s never going to happen!!

We have seen this unity exhibited at the rally in Mumbai and other metros in India, where hundreds of people, including children and senior citizens, gathered on 3rd Dec 2008, to mourn the death of victims and martyrs and to demand security for the common man.

The common man like you and me, when united can bring about a change….a reform in the government, in the administrative system and take self ownership of our own security and the security of our brothers and sisters of this country.

This unity, undeniably tells the people who want to terrorise our country or the world, that IF YOU THINK WE ARE AFRAID THAT YOU’LL DESTROY US……..I THINK, YOU NEED TO THINK AGAIN.


Terrorism is spread by terrorists, who do not follow any religion, faith or any nationality. No religion, no holy book scriptures in the name of God, tells its believers, to kill people and terrorise the world….so that they get eternal life after death in heaven.

If the terrorists caught & found, follow a particular faith and if they belong to a particular nation, then I must say that this is a mere coincidence. They belong and follow a particular faith because they are simply born into it………probably they have never understood the word of God.

These are people, who run away from their homes to join the community or a group, who follow the RELIGION OF TERRORISM. We shouldn’t blame people who follow a particular religion and who belong to a particular country. But yes, if we have investigated that the terrorists are trained in certain hide-out locations of Pakistan, then we seek the co-operation of Pakistan to help India and the rest of the world combat the terrorists.

No democratic country can ever be involved in terrorist activity, and hence we are definite that the terrorist training camps that are taking place in Pakistan (which is a democratic country) is on a hide-out, and the training camps are being conducted without the knowledge of the government.

But, with the intervention of the government of Pakistan……………….it is easier for India and the rest of the world to combat terrorism right from its roots. WE NEED TO FINISH THEM UP COMPLETELY!!!

We are a world of billions and billions of people and this community which follows the religion of terrorism are a real small group. If each country along with their forces unite in co-operation, we can simply cease them and put each one to task by law.

India needs younger and educated team of people in the government, who are aggressive and will go to any extent to secure our country, in a positive way. Each citizen of India, should also take the onus to secure themselves and their families. And yes, the change is in process and it will happen.

We do not want anyone to sympathise with us but yes we need your support to fight our war on terrorism.

We have had enough…and can’t take this anymore..

We love our Mumbai…..We love the India we live in. India is the front runner in the global economy. Even with this economic downturn, India has managed to sustain its growth and from a developing country, India is not far from becoming a superpower developed country.

India is one of the largest democracies of the world and each citizen of this country has the right to talk and write about the people they put in power. Probably, I would have not had the guts to write this article in my blog, if India was a land of dictators.

Hence, here am I using my right to speak about matters that make me and the citizens of India watchful after the recent terrorists attack which took the whole of Mumbai and the whole of India under ransom.

We can’t take this lying down anymore…….we just CANNOT!!!.

Each citizen of India is just fed-up with the security of this country. Where on earth, are the citizens of India safe!!! We keep talking about “The Mumbai Spirit”, here in India. A serial bombing happens…..people seen mourning for a day and then we have bounced back the very next day to our normal day’s schedule. We do this because we want to keep this city alive. It is because of this attitude of the citizens of Mumbai, that our city Mumbai is a financial capital of India. Mumbai and the whole of India survives….because of its citizens….because of the common man.

I just need to tell you that we no longer can bounce back……..our spirits are in the state of coma and we just can’t take this anymore. We are afraid, to get out of our homes today. We are not sure, whether our family members would return home. We cannot see the innocent people of this country dying each day, loosing their property, money….that they have earned after a turmoil of their working years in this city.

We want a change in the system…..A change with aggressive and principled officers who will work towards making this land a safe place for locals and for foreigners.

Just a day after the terrorist attack, the government is getting a makeover. However, we need to tell you that this is not the right time for a makeover. We are bleeding at the moment and the government needs to wait before taking any such drastic steps.

We need to plan our strategy before making such hasty decisions, because this will paralyse our government, leading to more attacks.We need to put the people who attacked us to task. We need to work towards this FIRST HAND. WE NO LONGER CAN FORGIVE AND FORGET!!!

And yes, we can put the people and the countries who are supporting terrorists training and activities to task, by demanding that they better be vigilant and take action against these groups. We know the names and the so called underworld dons involved in these criminal activities…… why not just kill them. We can do this only in collaboration with other powerful nations.

We do not want a War……we want Peace!!!
