The Internet: The Bane

Posted: June 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

The Internet – which was originally developed for US Defence purposes – is today all pervasive and touching the lives of billions of people..
In fact, today the world has over 3 billion devices that are connected to the Internet. And that number is growing at a dramatic pace.
It is precisely for this reason why I believe that the dangers of the Internet need to be recognized. The Net’s popularity has a dark side, as it has evolved from a friendly research network to a hotbed of criminal activity including fraud and identity theft.
1- Some of the world’s most heinous terrorist acts have occurred due to the ease with which the criminals have accessed dangerous information on the Net: Today you can freely get information on making crude machine guns to manufacturing deadly bombs to mixing dangerous poisons. Some sites even tell you how to kill a person instantly with your bare hands…
2- Scientists also believe that the rise of social media like Facebook and Twitter is radically changing behaviors and attitudes. Youngsters seem to be getting too inward looking, staring away at monitor screens all day long, engrossed in their own private lives. Some of them are forgetting the importance of real life, physical interactions. They are increasingly becoming awkward, addicted to the virtual world. This is having an impact on their relationships with their parents, teachers and friends. This could explode into a social problem soon.
People are also trading insults freely and damaging reputations on these social media site…That is the reason why the Indian govt is trying to bring out some form of regulation to this medium where all and sundry say what they want…
3- The internet is also a fertile ground for pedophiles, where unsuspecting youngsters are taking advantage off and exploited. There have been multiple cases of criminals completely destroying the lives of young kids…
4- Look at the amount of financial scams that the Internet is causing. People are being ripped off everyday by crooks and cheats who are using newer and newer methods to con gullible people
5- Lastly, you have rogues who can bring down the entire economy of a nation to a grinding halt. This over reliance on the Internet has made nations vulnerable to digital attacks…In recent times there have been news reports of key departments in the Indian government being attacked.
Friends- This is the bane of a digitally interconnected world… As spiderman says in the movie: “With great power comes great responsibilities” —- It is time we became responsible and aware neticizens….

Around 5 months ago,the city-state of Delhi witnessed what some might call ‘a turn-around’ of epic proportions.The honourable chief minister Mr Arvind kejriwal put in his papers which resulted in an uproar in the national capital.Media Persons made the situation worse by magnifying the problem and suggesting absurd theories for this resignation.The so called ‘intellectuals’ were not far behind as they criticized Kejriwal for not being able to handle the pressure and for betraying the peoples trust.

The actual reason for the resignation is believed to be the failure of the introduction of the Jan Lokpal Bill.It is believed that Mr Kejriwal’s frustration knew no bounds after the bill was scrapped.

After resignation ,Mr Kejriwal contested in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections held across the country in the months of April and May from the constituency of Varanasi however, Kejri’s ‘Aam aadmi image’ was no match for Narendra Modi ,the golden child of Indian politics whose victory did not come as a surprise.

After a disappointing performance in the General Elections,with 4 seats,It seems that the Aam Aadmi Party won’t be forming the central government this time around.All they can hope for is probably making a little difference while they are in the opposition of the parliament.

The latest reports say that ‘Kejri’ is hoping to form the government in Delhi …again.Well this time the man says that he wont resign and go on ‘Dharnas’ so frivolously.

I wish Mr Arvind Kejriwal the best for all his future endeavours and hope that he can bring about a change in Indian Governance and politics.

This time will the Hero of the common men fight for the masses or betray the public’s trust …………………again?

According to the Oxford dictionary, religion is ‘the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods’.I believe that religion doesn’t cause
war.Believing in any deity or superhuman individual does not promote war.I believe that the main foundations of any religion do not promote war unless the particular religion is blasphemed. For example a strict interpretation of the Quran tells us the muslims can go to
‘jihad’ or ‘Holy war’ only if the Prophet or Allah has been severely blasphemed or insulted.
I argue that religion is an idealogy that preachers have full liberty to interpret.Therefore if any preacher tries to start a war in the name of religion then,I believe that it is the person in question is responsible not religion.
The arguement of the opposition is like a cat speaking russian ,Its absurd and it doesnt make sense

Advertising; The Bane

Posted: June 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

In todays world where we are overloaded by advertisments we cannot go anywhere without seeing advertisments in some way or the other .Eg: advertisments are brodcasted on the television , they are on the radio , on ugly hoardings as we enter school and worst of all we have advertorials instead of editorial .Studies say that an average person sees around 5000 advertisments a day…Shocking Isn’t it …. I plead that people should be let to live without being bombarded by unnesscary information that they do not need ,After all the common man should be able to live a simple and tension -free life.
In India advertisers parades flamboyant cars , shiny diamonds and costly cosmetics in front of a country that lives in its 6,00,000 villages ,In these villages nearly 60 % of the people earn below ₹260 per month ….Don’t you think that is unfair and wrong on the part of the advertisers .Advertising usually causes theft as it tempts and taunts people on products that they don’t have.At the end of the day if the people steal or not it makes na individual to feel bad…..
Advertising leads to excessive consumerism which means that people buy what dont need and accumulate clutter in their houses .As advertising favours the large marketting giants ,the smaller companies which probably manufacture better products loose out ,The neurology department from yale medical school recently found that advertisements reduce the attention span of youngsters,the current 21 year old is believed to have an attention span of 30 seconds
Advertisments are believed to be the main cause for the stereotyping of women and the depiction of women in inappropriate ways.Marketting strategies used be advertisers are making people more interested in materialistic gains .Thus,advertisments stunt the all round devolpment of an individual.Lets not live in a world where where the youngsters are fidgety ,introverted characters.’Cut down advertisng ,I say ‘

Here I am in the  pocket of my master.I wonder what his plan his, how he plans to execute his mission.I sit there dreading the moment where i will have to pass through most flesh ,the moment when my smooth stainless steel will have a cover of sour blood.I wait
wait for the moment when a scream will echo in the room ….and my ears forever.The time comes close i think to myself when blood will drip from my blade, the time is near when a limp body is the result of my action and my masters’ deed. I go through the routine that I hate ,only for the moment when fresh water flows on blade ,It washes away the dried-blood on my steel also taking with it my sins.Glistening with drops of clear water ,my steel has been returned its sheen.I will lay on the table wondering when next my master will pick me up,Wondering whether my master will proud of me,wondering why I was a knife.
