We the people of INDIA...Will be the change we seek...


60 years ago India's founding forefathers had a dream for all of us - a dream of an equal and just society where every man, woman and child has the right and privilege to lead a fulfilling and nurturing life, free from all kinds of oppression. This was a dream and a hope over 60 years ago. The Constituion of India and specifically the Preamble to the Constitution of India, defines a clear roadmap for the future of our country wherein the common man and woman hold the power to decide their destiny.
Today nobody can say that India has achieved this dream. Before independence the common man was a slave to foreign powers; today he has become a slave of the political system of our country. There is a new master in our country today - the political Neta. This Neta, who asks for our votes during elections, and then forgets us after he wins, this political entity decides the common man's destiny.
But every civilisation reaches a plimsoll line of tolerance. This is our line. India's common man has had enough of oppression, inequality, injustice and unkept promises. For the last 2 years the anti corruption movement has galvanised the country from end to end into one common voice - a voice that is demanding a complete rehaul in the way political parties and their leaders function.
This national demand for a change in the way our political system works has forced our anti corruption drive to enter the political arena to clean it from the inside. Politics itself is not a dirty word - it is our current breed of politicians who have made it dirty. Aam Aadmi Party wants to make politics a noble calling once again.
We want to create a system where the political leaders we elect and place in the Parliament are directly responsible to the voters who elected them. Our party's vision is to realise e dream of SWARAJ that Gandhiji had envisaged for a free india - where the power of governance and rights of democracy will be in the hands of the people of India---Aamaadmiparty

This is a historical moment in India's journey. The common man, woman, child and youth is united and is demanding an end to the greed and corruption rampant in our political and governance system. The anti corruption movement has exposed all political parties, ruling and in the opposition, as liars and completely unwilling to create a strong anti corruption Lokpal law. Since all efforts to plead our case with the existing political system have failed, it is time we change this system of greed and exploitation from within. The Aam Aam Aadmi Party is a chance for every man, woman, child and youth to have a say in deciding their destiny. It is high time we change the corrupt system of India forever. It's time we make politics a noble and respectable calling once again. This is the main vision of Aam AADMI Party. Your party. The common man's party. Jai Hind!

Why so serious?

Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was… a drinker. And a fiend. And one night he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not-one-bit. So – me watching – he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it! Turns to me, and he says, why so serious, son?” Comes at me with the knife… “Why so serious?” He sticks the blade in my mouth… Let’s put a smile on that face! And…Why so serious?

Every Rule has an Exception

Here is a rule whose very statement proves the rule to be false. The rule is
Every rule has an Exception
So going by its statement, even this rule should have an exception, which means not every rule has an exception, because there is at least one rule which has no exception, which in turn means the statement of the rule is false! So guess it would be more appropriate to rephrase it to say something like “Every rule has an Exception, except for this rule”.

If it is not clear, let me rephrase the logic.

The rule says that “Every Rule has an exception”.

Now this in itself being a rule, even this rule should have at least one exception. Isn’t it?

So, if this rule has an exception, then it cannot be “Every” rule, because there is one rule, which is the exception, which is outside the boundaries of this “Every”.

Which in turn means, not all rules have an exception, and so the use of the term “Every” becomes inappropriate.

So without validating any other rule for an exception, if the statement should still sound correct, then we should probably rephrase the rule as

Every Rule has an Exception, except for this rule.
Now if that was about logic, when we come to real life cases, finding even a single rule which has no exception will make this rule invalid.

For instance, there can be no exceptions to rules like “Gravity always attracts

The dance is a poem of which each movement is a word.

"There is no other knowledge, no other learning, no other art, not even yoga or action that is not found in dance."



Dancing is like dreaming with your feet!

Things perfected by nature are better than those finished by art.


When the last tree falls.
When the last river is polluted,
And, When there is no 
breath of fresh air left
We will realize that
    WE CANT EAT MONEY.

Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.

Hug.


Silence Plzz,,,

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence



Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.

I am watching you.


Every breath you take,
And every move you make,
Every bond you break, 
Every step you take, 
Ill be watching you. 

Every single day,
And every word you say, 
Every game you play, 
Every night you stay , 
I'll be watching you. 

Every move you make, 
Every vow you break,
Every smile you fake,
Every claim you stake, 
Ill be watching you.

Territorial claims


Territorial claims: Current boundaries


Disputed borders are both a cause and a symptom of tensions between big neighbours in South Asia. When the colonial power, Britain, withdrew from India it left a dangerous legacy of carelessly or arbitrarily drawn borders. Tensions between India and China flare on occasion, especially along India's far north-eastern border, along the state of Arunachal Pradesh. In recent years Chinese officials have taken to calling part of the same area “South Tibet”, to Indian fury, as that seems to imply a Chinese claim to the territory. A failure to agree the precise border, and then to demarcate it, ensures that future disagreements may flare again.

Pakistan, too, is beset by difficult borders. Afghanistan, to the north, has long been a hostile neighbour. This is largely because Afghanistan refuses to recognise the frontier—known as the Durand line—between the countries, drawn by the British.

Most contentious of all, however, are the borders in Kashmir, where Pakistan, India and China all have competing claims. By the time of independence, in 1947, it was clear that many Indian Muslims were determined to break off from Hindu-majority India. It fell to a British civil servant, who knew nothing of the region, to draw a line of partition between territory that would become Pakistan and India. Pakistan was given Muslim dominated areas in the far north west, plus territory in the east (which itself got independence as Bangladesh in 1971). The rulers of some disputed areas, notably Kashmir, were told to choose which country to join.

While Kashmir's Hindu rulers prevaricated, hoping somehow to become an independent country, Pakistan's leaders decided to force the issue. Since Kashmir was (and is) a Muslim majority territory, Pakistan felt justified in seeing Pushtun warlords charge in from the north-west of Pakistan, late in 1947, to seize control of Kashmir. In response India, apparently invited by Kashmir's rulers, deployed its national army and stopped the invaders taking Srinagar, Kashmir's capital, located in the Kashmir valley, the most coveted part of the territory. The resulting line of control, by and large, remains the de-facto international frontier within Kashmir and, in effect, is accepted by Paksitan and India. Huge numbers of Indian and Pakistani soldiers remain in Kashmir today as both countries profess to be the rightful authority for the rest of Kashmir.

Complicating matters, China has also extended its influence, and control, over portions of Kashmir, largely with the support of Pakistan, an ally.

INDIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC




The music of India is said to be one of the oldest unbroken musical traditions in the world. It is said that the origins of this system go back to the Vedas (ancient scripts of the Hindus). Many different legends have grown up concerning the origins and development of Indian classical music. Such legends go a long way in showing the importance that music has in defining Indian culture.

However the advent of modern historical and cultural research has also given us a good perspective on the field. This has shown that Indian music has developed within a very complex interaction between different peoples of different races and cultures. It appears that the ethnic diversity of present day India has been there from the earliest of times.

The basis for Indian music is "sangeet". Sangeet is a combination of three artforms: vocal music, instrumental music and dance. Although these three artforms were originally derived from the single field of stagecraft. Today these three forms have differentiated into complex and highly refined individual artforms.

The present system of Indian music is based upon two important pillars: rag and tal. Rag is the melodic form while tal is the rhythmic.

Rag may be roughly equated with the Western term mode or scale. There is a system of seven notes which are arranged in a means not unlike Western scales. However when we look closely we see that it is quite different what we are familiar with.

The tal (rhythmic forms) are also very complex. Many common rhythmic patterns exist. They revolve around repeating patterns of beats.

The interpretation of the rag and the tal is not the same all over India. Today there are two major traditions of classical music. There is the north Indian and the south Indian tradition. The North Indian tradition is known as Hindustani sangeet and the south Indian is called Carnatic sangeet. Both systems are fundamentally similar but differ in nomenclature and performance practice.

Many musical instruments are peculiar to India. The most famous are the sitar and tabla. However there are many more that the average person may not be familiar with.

All of this makes up the complex and exciting field of Indian classical music. Its understanding easily consumes an entire lifetime.

Wedding Underwater

There was a child at a wedding, he saw the bride wear white. “Mommy”, he asked, “why does the bride wear white?”
“Because its the happiest day of her life.” She answered. The child sat and pondered.
“Then why does the groom wear black?”
*This is meant as a joke, I am not saying that marriage is bad, in most cases anyways.




Every time I see you I want to marry you, then it hits me that we are married.




Marriage is like Boxing. In the beginning they shake hands, but…



Marriage is the only war where you sleep with the enemy





When a newly married couple smiles, everyone knows why. When a ten-year married couple smiles, everyone wonders why



The surest way to be alone is to get married



The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret




In marriage, tears and smiles make the music of life.




Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same.







*A couple were asked how they managed to stay together for 75 years.
And their reply was:
Because we were born in a time where if things were broken we would fix them not through them away.
