INDIA NEEDS A LEADER LIKE THIS - FOR SURE
The views of Patriotic Australian Prime Minister
India Needs A Leader Like This!
Prime Minister John Howard - Australia
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.'
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, Indian citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

Finally into BOSCH!!!!!!!!!
How did I make through rb?? I sometimes ask this quest to myself. And that is when I go to that day. That day when more than 500 students from all over north karnataka had assembled at sdmcet and I was there too. But not to write the exam or attend the interview but to help as a volunteer. Poor students will have a tough time in finding places at sdmcet.(It took 2 yrs for me to find the right spot in the right way…I applied shortest path algorithm!!!)…Ther was a ppt held at ccf seminar hall and it was jam-packed with the aspirants. But poor harsha was not interested at all. He stood there near the stone bench chattin and making fun of hula(Sandeep doddaballapur is his 'father-kept-name'!!!) he had got the koining date on 7th of july…the earliest of all. And he was the ;ast to get placed in our group. And suddenly all started shouting "yeee,,,bare written anta le Ppa…" so I thought y not give it a shot…and mind said yes.
So now the next important job was to find a pen!!! And for all such things there is one person who has been supporting me…yes…Keerti bai…my best frnd and the strongest…(lol..my left hand is numb already)…so I managed to get a pen very easily…and finally I was in the ccd seminar hall to write the exam…
I had almost forgotten that there is a language called c and aptitude was at the lowest level.but who cares??? Who is gonna join bosch??? "hanga mushkiri le ppaaaa…." is wat I said to keerti and she was pretty serious about it. She sat besides me. So finally the exam started.
50% c :-( and 50% aptitude :-/ ….i was not worried at all, coz one thing kept swiping through my mind.."bosch yara hogtar le ppaaaa"…
So I started marking and I seriously donno wat I was doin…and after an hour I was outta my chair…
And forgot bosch..
So started worrying again for the recession and no openings….and thought of writing elitmus..wrote it too (btw this was after a month I wrote RB exam) But the paper went horrible. And was narrating this to kodihalli and pai (yes the head F***** pai) at majestic and slowly we went to garuda mall.. Were lunching there and I got a call from banglore number…I sasid "HELLO" and that was a call from bosch….and then I faced the interview and then right now I'm here. In my cubicle…in a german company bosch.. In it's eos2 department. And I remember the day when I said "bosch yaar hogtaar le ppaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "….

Communiction has no barriers.I realised it when i went to TamilNadu.I knew nothing of TAMIL and they dint know a bit of either english,hindi or kannada...So i was using all my dumb charades skills to communicate.I was really frustrated with them...Trust me u'll go crazy....And one day while i was checking my mail..This is what i saw....Go ahead and read it.. And u'll ROTFL....
Akhil Chandra Sen wrote this letter to the Sahibganj divisional railway office in 1909. It is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption Travelers' Tales" in the Far Eastern Economic Review.
"I am arrive by passenger train Ahmedpur station and my belly is too much swelling with jackfruit. I am therefore went to privy. Just I doing the nuisance that guard making whistle blow for train to go off and I am running with lotah in one hand and dhoti in the next when I am fall over and expose all my shocking to man and female women on platform. I am got leaved at Ahmedpur station.
This too much bad, if passenger go to make dung that dam guard not wait train five minutes for him. I am therefore pray your honor to make big fine on that guard for public sake. Otherwise I am making big report to papers."
Any guesses why this letter was of historic value?...............................It apparently led to introduction of toilets in trains.
(I repeat again..Language is no barrier when it comes to expressing thoughts....)

Ganja held, cocaine held, suspects arrested,
Fagging in public banned….but who gives a damn..i Still enjoy being an exhaust pipe…
Statutory warning: Cigarette smoking is injurious to health….
Blah Blah Blah……
I used to blame many people for smoking in public, about their addictions and the most important thing..Not being able to control their minds from addictions…
What is addiction????…yesterday night I gave it a thought…. To be frank, from a few days I’m feeling the need of browsing the net freely…Exploring my old, struck-0-philic computer at dharwad...opening my folder…checking my inbox for a pretty long 30 minutes….downloading movies….ahhh….when will I get those days back??
I was feeling so damn restless and wanted it badly…. But alas....i’m here..alone…800Km away from all my beloved ones….and rubbing my A** for my daily bread….
And suddenly I thought... is this how a smoker feels after staying away from cig for a long time…or is this how a druggy feels at rehab centres??? And if that is addiction and we blame it…What is this?? What was the feeling I just felt???
So after a lot of "tumbling-of-thoughts" in my mind, I defined addiction as a mental desire…
And then onwards I felt either I should stop my addiction or stop feeling irritated about the druggists and the faggers…Afterall it’s the mind which matters and not the cause…
But ofcourse…the latter 2 are injurious but mine is mentally stressful….so I’ve not yet decided which one is to be stopped…But will stop one of the two…blaming them or missing home…..That’s for sure….
P.S: I really don’t know why I’m writing this.

Check out the snaps after reading...
It’s been about a week my life in Coimbatore has started and I’m already getting bugged of it’s heat and stink….but trust me..If u look around once u’ve got ample number of places to visit and all are very much affordable (let aside much hyped ooty,kodaikanal and munnar). This Vijaydasahmi we planned a trek to vellingiri malai( vellingiri hills) and this was my first trip after getting coimbatored…and I was really in need of one to relax myself. So as per the plan we left Coimbatore at 8:30 am and reached the foothills of vellingiri hills at about 9:30am. And everybody in the office started laughing when we said vellingiri malai.. cos it is supposed to be a very difficult trek and an exhaustive one too…Even the taxi driver started laughing when we said we’ll climb vellingiri…
That made us more broken and we thought of climbing it half (But to be frank we dint know how much of the hill is half!!!!)
So some basic facts about Vellingiri. There are 7 hills we gotta climb and on top of the 7th hill lies the shiva temple. All that we knew was that and we went to climb it…
At the foothills we stood and clicked some photographs to mark the starting of the trek. And every check point we had to click one. We started as a team of 12. And as and when we started climbing slowly but steadily we felt it’s gonna be a tough task as it was just too rocky and dry without much greenery and full of scorching sun and no blowing wind.Vrashabh gave up very early at about a few hundred steps and we bade him goodbye. So we were 11 now!!! And the whole team was broken and divided based upon their speeds and capacity. The first hill was done after 1hr 15mins of rigorous climbing and we rested for a while. And seven more to go!!!! Was scary…And then slowly Yathish and Horatti gave up…and thus went on our trek..willing to see the top but no fluid left in our body. Nor in our water bottles!!!!
And after a rigorous climb of about 3.5 hours we had managed to see the peak of the 7th hill from a long distance. Or to be precise from the peak of 4th hill….thereby the other 6 people gave up and it was me,Narayan and Aslam still to have some fluid and guts left in us to climb the 7th hill. We dint want to go back when we have invested so much of our energy and time. And above all, we were so close to our destination. It was visible!!!
We decided to climb and started towards 7th peak at 1:00pm. With literally nothing in our body and few bottles of water in our bags.
And now started the real trek. Now I started to realize how impossible it is to conquer the nature. And how impossible it was to reach the top. Trust me…every ten steps I had to rest for 3 minutes. And this went on till we reached the top.Every step was like climbing a hill in itself.and every step was sucking lots of energy from my body and every step was filling my mind with more determination….And finally at one point I heard Aslam shouting hhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…….And I rejoiced as I was only a few steps away from him…HE HAD REACHED THE TOP!!!!!!
And the sight was awesome and all the exhaustion and weakness was gone once I saw mother nature in such a form. It was chilling out there. We were literally into the clouds and I Could see a bird’s eye view of Coimbatore, a part of Kerala and many smaller hills!!!
That was like……oooooohhhhhh my god……and my camera was never off….it was something I had never experienced…..Only the one who has reached can experience it… And I felt so soooo pity for the people who gave up at the end of 4th hill. They missed it.
And then while coming back it was just exhaustion and curiosity to tell all others how it was.
In the meanwhile we had forgotten we had office the very next day and our legs are gonna be in the worst of their forms….but then….all others who did not reach the peak were also gonna have that….So finally I reached my room at 8:30 and fell asleep at 8:45 and woke up at 7:30 the next morning….to find my leg in a painful condition..!!!!
But it was all worth it….
Do visit it once if u have the balls...

joined bosch on august 18th. i was given Coimbatore as my joining location from 29th sept.I wanted the time to run as slowly as possible. But realised it's all in vain.
i slowly started preparing myself physically and mentally for coimbatore(COB-that's how it is called in bosch)
But my mind always hated to go to tamil nadu. can't speak tamil, can't vango-pongo-ukarongo with these fanatics. That's impossible for me.
Wherever i have been till now i was able to manage. i mean language was not a problem for me.
But trust me tamilians do not know a shit in english and hindi is not for them.
Me and Vrashabh were mentally preparing ourselves for the lungi-clad dark,moustached men and saree (or chudi) clad,dark,long-curly-oily haired ,typical tamilian bindi-ed gals.
We started looking and staring at every 'lil bit of beauty found in every gal in bangalore, coz we knew our fate in coming months!!!
and finally that day came, The 28th of september 2008, and it was time for me to bade good bye to namma bengaluru and come to tamil-nadu. And was a bit tensed and scared coz i dint know where to go in coimbatore and i dint know the language and i dint know anything about the new place i'm going.
I had wxpected all-tamil-people in karnataka itself but a bit closer to tamil border. But i got the first tamil-thunderbolt when i saw the bus board reading -COIMBATORE and i asked the driver to confirm "Saar!!! Coimbatore hogatta??"
The driver answered "aama saar...Vaango"!!!!!!! i was like...this bus is a tamil nadu in bangalore!!
and it was true.
everybody in the bus started speaking in tamil when they saw the only alien wearing a jeans...(or should i say not wearing a lungi!!)
after final messaging and talking with my friends a short-dark tamil conductor met me and asked me something in tamil (i seriously dont know wat that was)
and i said "COIMBATORE...eshtu saar" (the kannadiga in me was in ful form!!!lol)..he said two-thirty-five and the triumphant harsha started rejoicing!!!
i called my friend who had been to cob before. and asked her how was the road trip?? can i find some good things??
She replied "AWESOME!!!! the hills,mountains,greenery will catch ur eyes" and i was ready with my cam and all my concentration on the roads and outside the bus.
But minutes passed, hours passed nothing came. all that i saw was dry barren lands, dusty fields, wide express highway, pebbles,stones,boulders,rocks and stony mountains. I was half exhausted coz i wasnt mentally prepared for that.
and then some friend of mine had told me coimbatore is a good city. not as big as bangalore but is big enough to fill ur fun-appetite...and as i entered the city of coimbatore all that i saw was dusty roads, stinky slums,
smwlly drainage, and people everywhere :-(
i stood there in the gandhipuram bus-stand waiting for my friend and it took ten minutes for him to come.
Those tem mins were like ten yrs for me..auto ppl somin to me and speaking something, bus ppl comin too!!!
then lookin at my luggage my friend asked an auto-rickshaw fellow...lakshmipuram (with his hands acting fully) how much???
autowala: vango saar....aravandh rupa..(meanin 60 bucks)
raghu(my friend): too much...jaasti...
autowala: blah blah blah
autowala: 60 saar....correct
i said: ok...let's go...
and then i reached my home..an exhaustive journey to coimbatore came to an end. and my new life begins from tomorrow!!!!
but met few friends who were all kannadigas..about ten of them...so i can c a ray of hope...
The office of cob in the next post...
cya soon...hopefully :-(

indian movies cant be imagined without songs,item numbers,long intervals(if u r in a theatre),
handsome strong hero, a hot sexy heroine,duets,fights and a few pot-breaking fight scenes...but
one movie stands out and has earns accolades from critics as well!!!
a completely different movie, properly shot, and finished in 2 hours before the movie viewer get's bugged.
yes, i'm talkin about the low budget,no khan-cast(read as khan-starcasted) movie "A WEDNESDAY"....
when many of my friends called me up and asked me to watch the movie i thought there is something in this. so one saturday i thought of
going to a wednesday with my family.
i wasnt sure of the quality of the movie but i trusted my friends.
and the movie began.
It effectively shows the stuff which was not shown till now in any of the movies.every terrorism-condemning movie either showed a hero who saves the people
or the anti-terrorist cell which works day-in and day-out to find the terrorists... but every director forgets to show the fury of a "STUPID-COMMON-MAN" (to know y i used this word u should watch the movie)
.....how do they feel when trains were blasted in mumbai, when bangalore was attacked,gujarath,delhi,jaipur,hyderabad....
hardly any indian metro-cit left un-attacked...how do we-the-people of india feel...we cant go out of home freely, i'm not assured of returning back safely once i go out...i dont know what my mistake is but i am killed....my children are killed...
my friends their families are shattered....and everything in a minute...
the words used by naseruddin shah are "koi ma**r c**d kyo tai karega ki mein kab aur kaise maroonga..." apt words i felt...
and no where u feel the movie is being dragged unnecessarily and nowhere u feel relaxed...
every minute is exciting...
now comin to the acting and direction...acting is superb..naseruddin shah,anupam kher(the police commissioner),
jimmy shergill(the furious ats cop) and another unknown fellow....acting is mindblowing...
and director has effectively proved that a movie can be made watchable without nude sultry babes, without sex,
without item numbers or without khans or kapoors....
ultimately what makes the movie worth a watch is it's super strong storyline...
this movie will remain in my mind for a long time to come...coz it reflects my mind.my feelings...the feelings of A STUPID COMMON MAN!!!!
book the tickets now...time's runnin out..
comments welcome after u have watched the movie!!!

COLLEGE BAKERY Thanks a ton ujji for the sketch
This blog is purely dedicated to sdmcet, my alma-mater, my college, my second home…..
Aahhh… I still remember the first day… the very span of 4 yrs was irritating…I was like “WTF….four years here???? Impossible….i’ll look forth for my destination….
My destination outta this college…my engineering degree…my temporary destination……”
When I listened to the song “hum joh chalne lage” song from jab we met I always thought and laughed at the poet’s stupidity when he said “manzil se behetar lagne lage ye raaste”….my question was, how can the happiness we get when we are moving towards our manzil be better than the happiness when we reach the destination????
Aaahhhhh….now I feel the feel of the poet….i feel that he’s right.
I feel the same feeling when I’m leavin my college..i still remember the day I said “4 YRS!!!! F***”…..I waited all these 7 semesters for 8th semester to come and get my a** outta this college. But ….but when I’m in 8th semester now…8th sem is about to get over… I’m about to reach my destination…the destination I’ve been waiting for these 3 long yrs….I feel sad…I miss each and every moment I lived in this college…
From the very first day when I had nothing but a few unknown naughty faces with me to the soulmates I got at the end of 4th yr I cherish every minute of it…ah…this journey is amazing….i will miss my college days.
I miss each and everybody who made it so special to me….The scoldings we got from Basti sir in maths class…he asked me, abhishek.M(mand abbya) and cecil to stand up…and yelled at us with full fury “BOTH OF U 3 GET OUT OF MY CLASS”…and we started rolling on the floor and was disgusting for the prof.!!!.....Basic electrical class was engaged by B.S.Shreesailan sir…his typical tamilian accent itself was funny..and above that the gems of our class …KARNA.HEGDE, ABHIJIT.UNKAL, GURU.KAMAT and JAFER.TADKOD troubled him to the core…and trust me they troubled him in every possible way..we even shouted revolutionary slogans (inquilab zindabad and vande mataram) in his class!!!!
Then came the branch entry….we were welcomed with a warm fresher’s party by our lovely seniors…tx to them….
In branch started our happy time…the real happy time…
I don’t think nagasundara sir’s classes have to be explained here….and how can I forget sridar sir!!! We had penultimate fun in his classes….hahaha….Navin shet was the man behind it…I miss him a lot…The time we spent in bakery after bunking the classes…the time we engaged in labs and projects…the time we spent in cultural stuff…and the sports room craze in 7th sem…SAMPA’s GAPline….ujji’s sketches….kodi’s 6 pack, chote’s PEPUSI…keerti’s heavy hand…sanjeev’s bidar accent…burchandi’s doubts…and the list goes on….i miss everything….
Aaahhhh…not one but many such soothing experiences which is bliss of solitude from now….which will stay with us forever…
Now I’m sitting on my study table with CNS book open….but not in a mood to study…and thinking of all the smile and tears we shared in 4 yrs….and I find my eyes wet….and I sing the song “……..haa manzil se behetar lagne lage ye raaste”

Pls don’t mind if I swear out loud in this blog….i’m seriously pissed off….how can a man who treated us with lagaan bang us with a 4 hour hot shot?????
One word to describe it ….SICK…btw did I tel u that I bunked the college to watch this movie?? Coz the classes were too boring to stop me from dozing off…but l8r I realized, classes were better…not just better…..a million times better than J-A….
In the first half I stared at my watch about a hundred times to c my watch rock steady….trust me…it wasn’t moving at aaallllll…..finally at the interval I almost spent all my money on potato wafers and cold drinks…I had enough food reserves to kill 2 more hours watching (errrr!!!) this movie…
One innocent question…wats there in this movie other than loads and loads of tanishq sponsored gold????
The director has bombarded the historical facts….the language is equally non-digestible and the formalities before baadshah….they drag the movie….and drag and drag!!!!!
Was it really necessary to adress Akbar as badshah-e-hindustan jalaluddin mohammed Akbar every single time??? And call jodhaa as mallika-e-hindustan rajput rajkumari jodhaa bai???Just imagine the time taken to cal the name…and every single time this is done!!!! I was like F***….were the people so sick in those days or the director is sick!!!!
Selected picks of the language used….Tashreef rakhiye (sit down), gustaki maaf huzoor(sorry sir), sazaa-e-maut(death sentence), azeem-o-shaan shehenshah (Donno d meanin), padhareeye(come)…..i cant remember the rest of the things!!!!thank god
Ahhh……altogether the movie is a package of boredom and frustration….even after reading this, if u wanna feel the kick of the movie then…all d best….be mentally prepared to take the torture..and all d folks who wanna watch in multiplexes!!!! U’ll find it more boring coz ther’s nobody to shout and entertain u!!!!!!

about a week ago my bro manjanna had planned a one day trip to a falls nearby...that is near yana (uttara kannada dist, karnataka state)
...we planned to visit the falls on 28/01/08.....ten of us were ready and were as usually excited....uttara kannada is a land of forests..blessed by the mountains of western ghats and the dense forests, it is a land of many waterfalls.
the major rivers are sharavati, aghanashini et al.
we planned to go to VIBHOOTI FALLS. a falls situated amidst dense forests 8km away from the famous yana....
the road to falls is too narrow and over that, the tourism dept is planning to improve the road. so few JCBs and a few hitachis are busy moving the earth which made our vehicle more and more shaky. our vehicle was wxperiencing a tough time in the dusty roads and our noise was disturbing it as well!!!!
finally after a journey of about 90 minutes from sirsi we reached VIBHOOTI FALLS.
to reach the water we had to walk for about half a kilometer....but the gushing water was alarming us about it's force from about 200 meters.....
well......after the 500 metre walk e reached the falls!!!!!!!!
i yelled out "oh my god...man is so tiny in front of nature"
it was a waterfall in between to rocks...and one rock was made up of limestone (and hence the name vibhooti falls)...
it was like a white strip amidst 2 black giants....
the falls doesnt fall from great height (like jog and unchalli falls) but has made many steps in her course....
nobody can die here cos of water...or due to inability to fight the force of water....cos every few metres u can find boulders which are there to help u out.....but hey....if u attempt a dive then these boulders turn fatal....
we thought of reaching the source of the falls (infact a tough decision)...it was seriously a tough task to do coz we had to literally climb the cliff and the only aid was few roots of some old trees...
and if u think ur woodland or any trekking shoe will help u out then pls rethink....
but our barefoot really helped!!!!!!!we reached almost on the top....about 200 feet above the ground level and trust me....it was scary...
i tried to go and challenge the stream of the falls....but the water was too cold (about 5 degree celcius) cos the sun hardly reaches the water....and the force of the water was something beyond my strength..
But i tried to do that and started shivering..ohohohohohohoh ghghghgooodddhhhh was what i shouted ...but i was tryin to shout oh god..!!!!hehehe....yes the water was that cold...
now it was the time to swim!!!! cold water swimming is really good but is makes u shiver from the bottom of ur ass....trust me it does....
but after a while we could heaten up our body cos swimming is a gr8 exercise....it's a bit deep but not dangerous at all...so swimming is an easier chore as compared to mountain climbing....
after an hour of swimming it was time to eat....we had a nice scene when manjanna was about to drown!!!! but as i've already said it's not the place to die(by drowning ofcourse!!!!)
pradeep and his fiance slipped and fell in water,which was too too tooooooo funny to watch...i was rotfl!!!!
we had lunch and left for sirsi...
thus our nice trip came to an end...
i seriously dont want the tourism dept to develop it cos this is the one of the very few places left unexplored!!!
no plastics..no guest houses..no guides narrating false stories...no hotels and no concretization....
but what upset me was even this place had some plastics lying and some shattered beer bottles....when will the man realise that nature is his mother..
and it's his responsibility to protect her....
but i realised......"MAN IS SO TINY IN FRONT OF NATURE".....
wanna visit vibhooti falls???????
it's about 8 kms from yana....
u have to reach yana via mattighatta......go ahead for 8 kms.....u find hegdekatta....and from there u ask any manly being ...
he'll show u the way...
but please be safe and dont use plastics there....
