TERRORISM/ Free training

The recent terrorist attacks in India make us especially CITIZENS grope in the dark with government which doesn't understand GLOBAL TERRORISM while the PM in waiting after his stint as Homeminister has learnt that POTA can cure this ill of terrorism.
As usual Americans know how to make money and so also here they charge for this knowledge but i think concerned citizens in India can get these vedios from their relatives in America and spread it around FREE.
The site has FREE VEDIO but not of good quality.

JEHADIES of South Asia / Ponder?


The recent riots in Kashmir engineered to protest the gifting of some forest land to Amarnath Shrine Board is orchestrated by Pakistan but funded by SAUDI ARABIA according to the
state Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad. This is a very interesting tidbit.
When Oil was not discovered in the deserts of Saudiarabia, its only source of revenue was the alms provided by the visiting faithfuls to the holy shrines of Mecca and medina. Those days the saudi princes used to be beholden to the purse strings of Nizam of Hyderabad ,Nawab of Arcot ans other Indian Muslim rulers who used to provide most of the facilities for the pilgrims and Saudies used to pay regular homage to the court of Nizam even before the British rule.
Discovery of crude changed all that. When the King was THE Chief guest at India's republic day parade recently , he did not have the courtesy to call on people of Hyderabad. Dollars have changed the roles. Now it is the turn of the Hyderabad virgins to be sold to aged VD/AIDS affected Saudis who come calling in the guise of marriage. Though the Saudis have worse human rights records as far as Domestic workers(imported from South asia) are considered , they go scot free because of the clout they have with western Governments. They are very clever in keeping the fundamentalists and Jehadies happy with various stratagem. They are the principal financiers of the Palestinian authority and also the governments of Lebanon. This in a way ensures the Jehadies only fight in Gaza,west bank,lebanon etc while leaving the Saudi household alone as they are the so called protectors of the Two of the holiest Islamic sites in the world. This honor was bestowed on them only in 1932 by some clever strategy by the British. There was no house of Saad before that and no protectors of the two holiest sites.They practice Islam in their own country in a way which will curtail the rights of women and so ideologically they can never be challenged by the fundamentalists as they themselves are wahabies. But they always kept the Americans in good humour by marrying American wives and keeping their excess oil wealth in US government securities.They are the principal backers of Americans in Iraq war especially as they dreaded Saddam and his Baath party as they used to dread the Egypt's Gamel Nasser in 1960s.. But they kept their options open with Sunni jehadies fighting The Shiite Iraqi regime. In a way this suited the Americans especially the Texan oil lobby and the arms export lobby. Obama is a fly in their ointment.
They also fund the Laskhkar -e-Jhangvi of Pakistan as also the Jaish and LET .In Pakistan the jehadies funded by them are throwing out the Shiites from Prachinaar in SWAT as the fundamentalists have done in Kashmir by throwing out the pundits and other Hindu poor who work in Kashmir valley in tourism industry. The have closed all girls schools and barber shops and CD shops.The Saudies also fund the Muslim separatists in southern Thailand as also in Philipines etc. But they are very CAREFUL IN NOT FUNDING THE MUSLIM SEPARATISTS IN CHINA in spite of prodding from US government. Musharaff the henchman of Saudies in Pakistan took action immediately when the chinese women were assaulted .
What is the gain for Saudies in funding the Jehadies throughout the world except the Chinese separatists. They aim to convert their Saudi sect into a sort of ISLAMIC CALIPHATE to which the SHEIKS and EMIRS of the world will pay obeisance. They know their oil wealth will not last for ever and they think this ISLAMIC CALIPHATE WILL ENSURE THEIR SECURITY AS WELL AS PROVIDE ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE.
South asians must think about KARACHI and BOMBAY and think of the power and fame and wealth these two cities commanded some 60 years back .Today people think of DUBAI,RIYADH,ABUDHABHI as epitome of wealth,economic prosperity and above all PEACE AND SECURITY. Will any investor in right frame of mind invest in KARACHI now or in DUBAI? Why the southasian Muslims should ALONE be the defenders of Islamic honour? I recently read an interview of a Jehadi leader of Pakistan who claimed responsibility for killing about 13 innocent Pakistani clerks and drivers working in the Danish embassy. Does not Danish embassy exist in Kualalumpur, Djakarta,Cairo,Istanbul,Syria, etc etc and many other Islamic countries of OIC? Why should the Pakistani Jehadi alone should be responsible for saving the honour of Islam by killing his own countrymen?
When American predator drones killed some Frontier Constabulary and Army personnel in Kurram( by mistake or deliberately), there was this uproar in Pakistan from Premier Gillani to ordinary Pakistani. They all said with one voice that US will be fought with all their might and patriotism. What i found it funny was that when Bitullah mehsud, or MangalBagh or other Jehadies in SWAT,NORTH, SOTH WAZIRSTAN, FATA kill the Same Frontier constabulary or Army personnel, the same Pakistani keeps quiet. His patriotism doesnot erupt as in the same way as when they face America. Does the islamic CALIPHATE FUNDED JEHADIES HVE THE RIGHT TO KILL THEIR FELLOW COUNTRYMEN especially the constabulary and army personnel?
Does the Indian Muslim jehadies alone are responsible for protecting the honour of Islam(SAUDIES )by killing idol worshippers in Bombay, Jaipur,bangalore,Ahmedabad etc? Every South Asian Muslim must ask this question to himself and ponder.

Indian Premier League and Indian Parliament

Indian Premier League and Indian parliament

When the cricketers were auctioned for Indian Premier league, there was this chorus from traditional cricket lovers that it is sinful
to auction players for money. Some said it is even immoral. They were aghast when Symonds fetched more money than Ponting.
But what counted was the Talent of the cricketers and more talented ones fetched more dollars.
Today we see parliamentarians being auctioned for 25 crores according to CPI's Bardhan. JMMs Shibu soren was offered coal portfolio
and some other portfolios for his flock. BJP countered it with CMs post in Jharkhand. JD(S) chief Deve Gowda wanted Bellary
mining to be nationalized. With Lad in their kitty, congress balked. The reddy brothers won the day for BJP and Gowda fell into BJP lap.
Samajwadi party was being wooed nearly 6 months earlier with very few in the know it seems. The left didnot understand the attack which Rahul Gandhi
was doing against Mayawathi for sometime now and also the CBI affidavit. What i found funny was that SP has betrayed the Left thrice
and the lament by Karat!!!!Amarsinghs statement about Shathriya honour when he paraded the BJP MP Brij Mohan singh will put the
acting by our heroes in Bollywood to shame who save shathriya honour. Meanwhile Mukesh Ambani was put in place with threat of windfall tax
on RIL refinery.( may be he was funding BJP surreptitiously).
I remember the time about 12 years back when JMM MPs were purchased by PV Narasimha rao for 25 lakhs each. In one interview
the JMM MP honestly said that he purchased a flat in delhi for 15 lakhs, sent 5 lakhs to his mother and busted the remaining 5 lakhs in
red light area of Delhi and on booze and scotch. But now we know Coal minstry in Delhi is more lucrative than CM's chair of Jharkhand.
Also years of Marx is no match to the perks of Lok Sabha speakership office.
An open auction with Preity Zinta,Mallayya,Ambani brothers taking part would have made the parliamentarians getting their due instead
of the cap of 25 cores now being talked about.
By the way i read in one blog the following questions being posed to the parliamentarians about the DEAL AND 123 AGREEMENT!

1) The future US cooperation with India will be governed under the provisions of the US National Laws, the Hyde Act included - allowing the US President access to information that will enable him to report back to the US Congress on different aspects, including the uranium mined and utilized, of India’s nuclear program.

2) The 123 Agreement imposes a “permanent ban” on India for conducting nuclear tests;

3) The Deal forces upon New Delhi the hitherto unacceptable CTBT regime which ironically even the US has refused to ratify;

4) This agreement recognizes the superior authority of the US President, US Congress, US Govt. Agencies, International Organizations, nuclear cartel etc upon India while reducing the Indian Republic to a subordinate and an inferior position.

5) India will have no case in the World Court should the US terminate this cooperation under any real or imaginary pretext;

6) The US will have right to seek the return of all nuclear items and materials and costs thereof;

7) The previously imposed embargo against India will remain in tact; Remaining under sanctions on fuel reprocessing, enrichment and production of heavy water for equipment and technologies

8) Under the direction of Washington India will work to prevent the spread of enrichment and reprocessing technologies to the so called third world;

9) India will not be allowed to build stockpiling that will help it to ride out any future sanctions and/or embargoes;

10) The US will not compensate India for having unilaterally broken with impunity the accord of 1963;

11) India’s civilian nuclear establishment present and future among others will remain perpetually under the IAEA inspection regime; Requiring India to allow access to IAEA and US inspectors, with a potential for espionage and sabotage;

12) The Deal’s qualitative and quantitative checks would substantially limit the size and sophistication of India’s weapons programs;

13) The US retains veto power in permitting India reprocessing which it did not have in the agreement of 1963;

14) Capping of India’s production of fissile material;

15) Requiring India to follow a foreign policy "congruent" with the US of which the isolation of Iran is an integral part;

16) Joining the illegal Proliferation Security Initiative;

17) Given India's security needs and hostile expansionist neighbors, India will need Nuclear Tests and a more dependable nuclear deterrence policy. At this point in time India still doesn’t have minimal, let alone, credible deterrence
18) The staggering costs of the mandated separation of civilian and defense nuclear facilities will effectively render them dysfunctional. The 'breadth of facilities' that India has decided to surrender to the so-called international safeguards is shocking as it includes elementary as well as 'fundamental physics and other research institutions'.
I know Dr.Anil Kakodkar supports the deal as well as Dr.Abdul Kalam and i respect their views though i have been a skeptic about the deal.But these two
are patriots whom i believe. Hope and pray as an Indian they are correct.
Open auction for our nuke deterrence compared to North Koreans could be quite good if our parliamentarians are not upto the reserve price.

Surpanakha and Indian male

As i was watching the latest episode of Ramayana in the channel, suddenly something struck me. Surpanakha , the sister of Ravan is actually the first LIBERATED WOMAN OF INDIA! Here is a lady princess (ugly,potbellied,hoarse voiced and big breasted according to Valmiki) while she is beautiful,slender and fish eyed(Meenakshi) according to Tamil poet Kambar. She was widowed by her own brother Ravan who killed her husband Dushrabudhi . May be this made her depressed and also psychotic. Her stay in royal palace might have become embarrassing and so she might have been sent into Vanavas with Ravan providing a covert escort.

What is interesting is the dialogue between Lord Rama and Surpanakha. She openly professes her love for him due to his good looks. Lord Rama does not immediately dismiss her but indulges in conversation which i find rather amusing. When her profession of love for him becomes insistent then only he comes out that 'HE IS MARRIED". Here is a woman who is always reviled as embodiment of bad virtue but she immediately respects the institution of marriage and asks him to refer another male. It is implied here that the other person is "unmarried". But Lord Ram directs her to Lakshman who is already married to Sumithra. Of course she is humiliated and physically disfigured. We all know how Ravan takes recourse to revenge etc.But to me the original act of Lord Ram in directing her to Lakshman itself is not morally correct. We Indians do not like our women even today to express their love openly. We prefer coyness.

Also we Indian men tend to form opinion about the character of our women from her physical attributes. Our psychological makeup comes not only from our epics but also Kokshastra which says Pad-mini type woman whose physical attributes (some thing similar to Genelia) is of good character while some one who looks like RakhiSawant must be of bad character. Truth,Honesty,open mindedness are not virtues for Indian male while a woman who exhibits lies with coyness is a virtuous woman! So we always remain mama's boys who look for Ganelias for marriage while her son is free to sow wild oats with Surpanakhas of the world. I have yet to see an Indian coming home with an African American bride but he will praise Obama and vote for him in America!!

Today i may call myself matured as i like the openness of Mayawathi, Renuka choudhry to the coyness of Jaya Pradha,Deepika Chakalia and Big Bindies of Brinda karat and Sushma swaraj but still i am married to a Genelia type!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love amongst Seniors

I read it in a Doctor's diary

It was busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him.

I saw him looking at his watch, and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.

On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health; he told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?'

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.'
I had to hold back tears as he left; I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, 'That is the kind of love I want in my life.'

True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an
acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message.

This one I thought I could share with you all.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything;

they just make the best of everything they have.

I hope you all share this with someone you care about. I just did.
