কুকুর হল মানুষের প্রিয় বন্ধু। কুকুরের মতন এত বিশ্বাসী জন্তু পৃথিবীতে হয় না – এমনকি মানুষ জন্তুটির থেকেও বিশ্বস্ত। শেষ দিন অব্দি তারা নিজের মনিবের জন্য প্রাণ দিয়ে যাবে। বহু বছর পরেও যদি তার মনিব ফিরে আসে, কুকুর কিন্ত কোনদিন … Continue reading When dogs bark
Another year has just passed by and as we welcome the new year of 2015, I took the first new year resolution that I will pen down 10 defining moments of 2014, which I feel had impacted the world. I am sure 2015 will be an exciting and good year for me – because, here I am taking time out on 1st Jan to honour my new year resolution. Believe me, this is a record for me and I pat my back myself :-) Coming away from the self-glory mode, let me focus on really writing on the 10 defining … Continue reading 10 defining moments of 2014
At the end of the day, when sleep beckons The delicate silhouette takes away my senses Which emotions breaking the darkness, silences my work ? Come and take me away ….. They walk with their heads down And happiness blotted up Never turns back to imagine their return I need to go to them at the end of the tide Leaving behind my home Will you give me space in the last boat of the day Come and take me away ….. All the loved ones have gone to their love All the aspiring ones have gone to cross the … Continue reading At the end of the day, when sleep beckons ….
We live in a so-called civilised world driven by the power of law, which has been formed by thoughtful groups and lots of common sense. One definition of ‘civilised’ means to have a high state of culture and development bound by basic virtues. We have found lots of ‘unions’ which gives us a platform to resolve issues at the highest levels, in case disputes are hard to solve at lower levels. We have vowed for following the rules, the ‘unions’, the ‘bodies’ we have formed across the world.We call ourselves ‘mature’ – which has an inherent meaning of looking at … Continue reading We want a mature, patient, civilised world …. not to be ‘trigger-happy’
photograph taken from the internet as available in public domain Mr. Snowden has brought up the dilemma of the notion of state security vs human rights violation quite strongly. This issue is nothing specific to one country, but probably applies to any major nation. It is true that the incident of 9/11 has changed the definition of security and fundamentally the definition of human trust. This is definitely very unfortunate, but again very true. On one side the logic of national security lies very strong. Till the time a person is caught in crime, major or minor, that person is … Continue reading State security or human rights violation?
Unbiased reporting to me is a utopian concept – something which you can dream of in an ideal world, but if you believe in that in the real world, you may land up in some major dis-belief after some days. I am not a reporter, nor a writer and hence do not have the inner conscience to recollect on some personal vows someone might have taken before they embarked upon on their careers. So, here I am writing controversy right now … When I am a reporter writing on a piece of news or an interesting subject, in all probability, … Continue reading Unbiased Reporting
It is high time that the political parties in India build up credibility with the common man on the streets. That is needed for the proper functioning of a huge country within the governance framework defined within the constitution. The youth of India are a different lot as compared to the generation we had 30 years ago, when our politicians were the youth. The faster this realisation comes, the better it will be for the political parties to reconnect with the people so that the common man can restore his faith back on the parties they are forced to vote … Continue reading ACT NOW !!
The world is going through a tough time with lot of potentially big issues that can destabilise the modern day society. The world is today integrated in a matter that did not exist so much even twenty years ago. The inter dependency of countries are intertwined through many channels – whether it is through import and export or through dependency of resources (both natural and human skills) or through political compulsions that trigger lot of funding across nations, the fact remains that we are all nodes of a huge interconnected network and we cannot build enough firewalls to insulate ourselves … Continue reading The modern era revolution ?
When I grew up, I was told by my parents, my relatives, my teachers that expressing your own opinion is a fundamental right and unless you discuss and exchange ideas, you will not enrich your thought. Sometimes, you tend to differ with someone on a particular topic, you tend to argue and even might have a verbal fight, but you still appreciate the different perspective and respect people’s different views on a topic. Each influential decision on life has different sets of positives and negatives – nothing is perfect ! But, still amidst the imperfect world, people tend to sit … Continue reading I can’t talk anymore
It is said that human beings after all are animals and hence possess qualities that are called commonly as “animal instincts”. However, one of the reason why these animal instincts are not displayed very often in public space is because human brains have an extra ‘layer’ of sanity, education, sense of ‘good vs bad’. But when circumstances push and push human beings to the limit of sanity, the strength of these animal instincts become so forceful that it overcomes all other senses and is then displayed in bouts of madness, extreme behaviour that defies common sense and understanding. Therefore, whenever … Continue reading Definitely, I am an animal !
