Sentinel to Cellphone Cancer


1171072968-sc-180

 

Anthony Grant, one of my friendly ex-employees (and mentor to me) is quite an enthusiastic person and not to forget a brilliant brain with friendly smile. I was shocked to know that he is figting BRAIN CANCER. Initially it started, a couple of months back, as short term head aches, which were ignored initially. Later on, he found that there was a pattern to these head aches. Diagnosis and test results showed that he had 7cm x 7cm x 5 cm tumour. Doctors declared it as 3rd GRADE. (on the fence). He has been a fighter and I am sure he would kick that \”bastard\” out of his head and flush it BIG TIME, my prayers are all for him.

 

 

Here are few of his doctor\’s recommendation:

  •  Avoid cell phones if possible, use HOME PHONE (not even chordless).
  •  Bluetooth helps, but there have been cases reported, so avoid that too ! (SHOCKED !)
  •  Heat your food on stove rather than Microwave
  •  Do not use plastic/foam containers while heating food in microwave – use glassware (CORELLE)
  •  Do not use plastic wrap over the glassware while in microwave
  •  Do not stand in front of a microwave when in use
  •  Advice your barber to use scissors instead of machine !
  •  many more ..

Recently I have been doing a little bit research on cellphone usage and its effects on brain cancer. (GOVERNMENT DENIES KNOWLEDGE ! )

Next few links SHOULD alarm you and please for your own sake, READ THEM !

Read the book review by Adam F. Jewell (might need to scroll down a bit) : (Click: source Amazon.com)

Forget the technical part, havent you felt it ?
– No privacy (people trying to sneak into your life details)
– Anytime, Everytime (always expect call)
– Infiltrating your deserving space and freedom (calls at wrong time)
– Couldn\’t justify the time with friends and family (getting those hey-whats-up-i-m-bored calls) – Disrespecting yourself (relying on it more than ourselves)

MY EXPERIENCE
5 months back, soon after my birthday, I had decieded and I have successfully reduced my cell phone usage to almost more than half. Back then, I used to be almost found holding that little piece of electronic stuck near my ears – talking. I have loads of pictures (accidentaly taken) which un-knowingly has that typical \”busy talking\” pose. I had subscribed to the cell service that gave me maximum free airtime minutes than competitors and I was still falling short. At the end of every month, I had to drag myself to control to not go beyond my financial limits, ofcourse, nights and weekends were always nice to cover up. But it became quite a routine and to be honest, I was annoyed then. Now I can very gladly say that I have been rehabilitated. My phone calls have reduced (and so my bills) ! I hardly use my allocated monthly minutes and unless important, I don\’t use it much in nights and weekends either. A success story ! Believe me its not difficult, if I can do it, you guys can surely do it with ease.

Better not rely on scientific research that denied cancer and tobacco relationship untill the tobacco lobby had pumped well into the system !

And now its A National Song !


1157045828-sc-147

Its a deeper disgrace! Bankim Chandra would have ever thought that his song that had inspired hundreds to unite and fight is the same to ingnite hatred among millions. May be thats why we call – mystic tunes have beats of red notes.

The world is watching, and they might be thinking. Why does it always have to revolve around Islam ? I have many of my friend from the so-called minority community but never did I feel that they had a conflicting national and religious sentiments. 

Vande Mataram.
  Bow to you, my mother land! 
You are blessed with rushing streams,
You are bestowed with fertile soil,
You are glorified by cool breeze,
and the dark waving fields!
Pure as the bright heavenly stars,
Adorned with blossoming gardens.
With an enchanting smile,
With words as sweet as nector,
Bestow your blessings on me!
Lovilest of all earthly lands,
Mother great and free!

[Can someone tell me where\’z religious sentiment getting hurt ? I can\’t find Durga or Allah mentioned either]
National Song is song of the nation and nation is beyond caste, creed and religion. We live in our country, we have to behave like its citizen and abide by the rules and regulations. Burning buses, killing innocents, killing merit after singing Vande Mataram is not patriotism.

Islamic hardliner around the globe are making it difficult for moderate muslim to live peacefully. Atmosphere is full of hatred now. Every muslim is looked down as a terrorist these day. Its high time that they (common muslims) should shun such religious zealots. After all, the hardcore reality is – what the world needs the most is peace and not god or allah or bhagwan.

Truly sad , a needless controversy is being created about a very inspiring song. Thank god we have AR Rahman in our midst to give a suitable and inspiring musical reply to the fatwa spewing mullahs. Arjun Singh has again managed to create a needless controversy by first issuing an order for its singing and then rescinding his order. No wonder we end up supporting BJP.

The whole matter has unnecessarily been given a communal touch. Though in a democracy, nobody can be forced to do anything but in a multi-ethnic country like India, it is very necessary to have some strong binding force like patriotism. \’Vande Mataram\’ is our national song and if any indian does not feel patriotic while singing this song then he should not sing it irrespective of his religion but don\’t spoil the beauty of the song by dissecting it and misinterpreting it.

It now seems that Indians ate more interested in religion than the country itself. Its a pity that we are fighting for the reason where national song is it be sung by all or not!

(Forword: Sindh (river) – Sindhu – Shindh – Ind (Indus valley) – Hind – Hindu – Hinda\’ – India  ! Ring the bells ?)

Reservation is eating up the great minds of India, It may have been good 45 years back but it\’s nothing but the dirty politics now, inviting brain drain and worsening unemployment.

There has been protests shown almost in every part of India, some gone wild while some left un-heard. But the best part of the whole situation is, the YOUTH has turned into a MASS !

DEVIL\’S ADVOCATE: INTERVIEW HRD MINISTER ARJUN SINGH

This is something that everyone should see. HRD minister Mr. Arjun Singh has no clue if the 49.5% reservation will work or not. He has no clue what are the present statistical data of the reservation. He has no clue what would be the repercussions. He has no clue or action plan for implementation.  He has no clue how to tackle the sensitivity of the issue.

His most intelligent answer to almost all the questions was – \”I DON\’T KNOW\”

OBC Reservation: Knowledge is Powerless !


1147974611-hr-116

 

Just imagine this scenario:
Year 2020.

Dad: Show me your report card son.
Son: (with smiling face): Here it is daddy.
Dad: (frowned): WHATT ???? (yells and calls for the kid’s mom)
Mom:
What happened? Why are you yelling ?

(Dad passing on the report card to Mom, with a sight of disgrace on his face.)

Mom: Hey Bhagwaan (Oh God)! How did this happen? What will we do now ? (she is in shock !)
Son: Mommy ? Pappa ? What happened ? (lil kid with all the curiosity and surprised to core)
Dad: Who told you to get 98% and top the class ? (looks angry)
Mom: Honey, its ok, cool down ! I would call our TV cable guy and get some movie and cartoon network channels so that he can spend time on TV. How about buying him X-box and lots of games? He wont study and hopefully if God and luck is with us, he wont get high on merit in future.
Dad: Its so depressing you know r8? Remember when I got 98% in JEE, and still couldn’t get into IIT, I was so much depressed. I wished my DAD was OBC!

(Screen play: Myself)

This scenario is not so far from reality. Though seems little bit exaggerated, but hold on, is 49.5% reservation for OBC also not too much ?

Such cheap political strategies are so familiar, I am not shocked. But what concerns me the most and may be its more like a nightmare feel to me is that what about FUTURE ? My future, your future and the future generations to come! With India going-to-be a global power within the next few decades (that I strongly believe) we desperately need talented brains that can present a secured future to India as visioners. By further extending quota system into higher educational system we are restricting not only bright talent but also the growth of the country as whole. Not surprising then, do we see Indians leaving the country and becoming successful elsewhere in the world.

India has globally created an image as worlds most successful democratic and free nation. Democracy by all means sounds a perfect synonym for equality. Then why reservations and divide the youth? Reservation is the worst thing a country can do. India and China (our direct competitor I believe, and a threat) produces 6 times more engineers and scientist. Unlike India, majority of leaders in China and Japan are engineers or atleast well educated people, and not bunch of illiterates (Lalu) or bandits (Phoolandevi). Giving seats to SC is the worst things India can do. It is already so high. 22.5% is really high. Making it 49.5% means students with the best grades won\’t be able to get in IIT, IIM, AIIMS (the core to Indian knowledge hub ), etc. We can understand 5% reservations, but 49.5%? Intolerable !!! India is doing great, second to China in growth but this move will put India almost at the bottom in next 10 to 15 years.

Barkha Dutt (From NDTV): Reservations have become a joke. We all know the statistics. More than 80 per cent of Dalit students never make it past Class X; more than 80 per cent of the reserved seats in vocational institutes remain unused; and in engineering colleges it\’s even worse — more than 90 per cent of seats in the reserved category just lie empty. (Source: NDTV news )

I don’t have any grudge or hatred towards the OBC’s, but the government’s decision has given a spike�to discrimination. As a citizen of India everyone has equal rights to dream. Reservation in education is just killing those dreams of millions aspiring.

Any idea why not 49.5% reservation in our Defense?

I have full hopes, faith, sympathy and prayers for the protesters. May God give them all the strengths to fight strong and smart. Amen !

Turkeys want to enjoy Thankgivings too !!


1132900250-sc-60

Thanks Giving !

– a time to rest in the long weekend

– a time to celebrate with family and friends and having wonderful dinner

– a time to see places in long weekend

– a time to enjoy the white fresh snow – the nature\’s pure beauty

– a time to prepare shopping lists and buy things at best and cheap deals

Everything sounds so nice and neat, feels like it would be the most beautiful time of the year, everyone is enjoying and everyone is busy ! Parties, Gatherings, Food and Fun……. something that someone would never want to miss.

Seems like everyone is Thankful for all the wonderful celebration. C\’mon  ITS THANKSGIVING !!

But in midst of all this \”clean and clear\” aoura, lil turkeys are being shamelessly killed?  Why do they have to run and resist to save their lives ? Why is their blood being splashing all over the walls of the poultry farms ? Why ??

Ain\’t they beautiful birds ? They have this innocence.., their eyes seem to have a hope for life. Their eyes seems like questioning – \”WHY US ?\”

WATCH THIS VIDEO TURKEY\’S VIDEO (Caution: if you are a turkey, please don\’t dare to watch)

DIDN\’T THAT MAKE U FEEL THE SAME ? OR SHAME ??

A FACT:

  • Some 46 million turkeys will be eaten on Thanksgiving, another 22 million at Christmas dinners. Overall, 95 percent of U.S. residents reported eating turkey at Thanksgiving, according to a survey by the National Turkey Federation. (source: Science News)
  • The average American consumes 17 pounds of turkey meat per year, resulting in the annual slaughter of 252 million turkeys—more than 65 million of whom are killed during the winter holiday season alone. (source: Compassion Over Killing – COK

 THOUGHT :

IS THIS KILLING NECESSARY ??

Let the Turkeys give Thanks!
