Palestine or Israel?

Another cease fire. And Israel is withdrawing from Palestine. Is this the end? Well, all around the world people are blaming Israel for attacking Palestine and killing 1000+ innocent people. Well, I would like to ask "who started it?". There was cease fire before and everything was going well until when the idiots of Hamas started sending rockets into Israel. I guess, that was a bait and Israel had taken it.
Well, ever thought about what would have happened if ceasefire had continued for a long time. Hamas would have lost its influence among its own people and people would have liked peace than something else. Seeing this, the Hamas are prudent enough to disrupt peace once in a while and at all times Israel have taken the bait. Though Hamas was the one who started it and thus to blame, now all fingers are pointing at Israel for their brutal attack. I am confused.
Pakistan was doing the same thing to India for so many years, but India never went attacking Pakistan and look where we've reached. Finally, everyone is agreeing Pakistan is supporting terrorism. As far as India is concerned, it is a big victory to get the support of the International community than to attack Pakistan, kill a few hundred and show off the courage and power.Who gains what from it?
Israel seems to have a different point of view, they don't care a damn about International pressure or what other countries think. There policy has changed from an eye for an eye to 2 lives for an eye.It is confusing as to what is right, to keep mum and suffer all what the terrorists do as India is doing or to give them more than they need as Israel is doing. What do you think?

Marriage and Expense!!

I recently came across a talk show which was about Marriage. No, its not the typical marriage stuff. But about marriage expense. They mentioned that after marriage the bride's parents' will become poor, all that left will be debts, debts and more debts. 'N what worse? no way to pay it back.The reason they mention is, 'coz the rich people are creating a culture of conducting marriage in such a way that the common and poor people are forced to follow them. They are forced to think.. if they are conducting marriage in such fashion, we should at least do somewhat similar.

So, all the audience suddenly said they are against dowry, gold, hi-fi auditoriums, treats, any unnecessary expense etc. What they say is marriage should be personal and only the closest relatives need to attend the function and can thus reduce the expense of marriage. If everyone follows this and make it a standard, this problem can be avoided.

But, my question is.. isn't marriage a personal thing. If rich people buy luxury cars, why do common people go for cars or two-wheelers?. Who created such culture? My personal opinion is that just 'coz someone's doing something, don't follow it. If you have the ability to do something, do it. Anyway, who is forcing it? No one, but us. Another interesting argument is to let the people who spent the money spent it. It's 'coz of people like them, that we have lot of job opportunities. We have event coordinators, marriage coordinators, tour coordinators and things like that. So, if everyone is earning money and if they keep it to themselves, new job opportunities won't be created, right? Sowhatyathink about this?

Is first impression the best impression?

We all might have heard the saying "First impression is the best impression". Well, I would like to share an interesting experience in my life. When I was doing my degree course, I was the worst in my class :P Very few teachers liked me. And there was one teacher who never liked me, always showed partiality towards me, because of stubbornness and i-don't-care attitude.

So, no need to say she hated me. Once she gave an assignment to the whole class. I was on leave that day and when everyone submitted the assignment the very next day, I requested her to postpone the date for me. She told me to write it on lunch time and submit it, otherwise, I'll lose my internals. One of my classmates came after a few minutes while I was wondering how I'm going to write it since everyone had submitted it. He requested her to postpone the date for him and bingo... she said OK!

Now, that was partiality. I had to write 'coz she didn't like me and she thought that my leave for the day was not genuine. who is she to check whether the leave was genuine or not? Anyway, what she really wanted was that I will go and say sorry for the leave and will beg her to postpone it.

Huh? She didn't know me. I was never going to do that, even if she fails me in the exams, there is no stopping me when I am determined to do something. Since everyone submitted the assignment I won't get any help. 'N she knew it. So, I had to do something, right? I stole one of the assignments from the staff room, pretending to ask for something and wrote the whole damn assignment, which was more than 15 pages, during the lunch time and submitted it. She was furious and it was on her face, but didn't know what to do and she didn't have the least idea, how I submitted it within time.

Normally, when she threatens the whole class with internals and marks and other stuff, everyone get scared, but not me and that was her problem. Everyone showed a help-me-please and respectful face whenever talking to her. Where as I kept a smile whenever talking to anyone and she thought I am smiling to insult her. Well, that isn't my problem, is it? 'N I didn't care.
Well, everything turned upside down when she announced the internal marks in the class.
The total internal marks is 25. And all got marks in the range 18-24. The best got 24 where as the worst excluding me got 18.

Wanna know what was my mark? Any guess???
Six. Yup! That's right.. That's what she gave me. 'N when I had more than enough internals for all the other papers, for her subject I had six. Great, the next worst student had 3 times my internals. You can imagine how disgraced I was, when she announced my marks in front of the whole class with a silly smile. 'N she told me I was the worst student and I should try something to pass the exam.

Actually, it wasn't my fault. I was studying in another college for the first 4 months in the semester and I asked for a transfer to get to this college 'coz it was much near to my place. So, by the time I reached here, everyone had done everything where as all my assignments that I submitted in my previous college is not valid. I didn't know that. Only after getting this mark, do I knew it. Well, she might've expected me to go to the staff room and beg in front of her to get more marks, as that was common among the studious students.

Well, my thoughts were different, I made up my mind that I, never in my life, will go to her for any help and that I will make her say I'm one among the best one day. 'N from that day onwards, I concentrated more on her subject than on her class, though her attitude towards me didn't get better. But because of my obstinacy, I got better in her subject and you won't believe what she said about me in our last semester.

I actually got better in her subject and finally she had to agree with my fearless attitude towards teachers 'coz she understood that I behaved the same way to everyone and not just to her. And on one day, to the whole class, she mentioned that you all are going backwards in your studies, except one person in this class who have improved so much. And he should be mentioned for his efforts in studies; that person is Aneesh.

Well, you could feel how I felt. I'm not sure what I felt that time. Revenge? Happiness? embarrassment?. But I still remember what I did when she told this. I pulled up my collar 3 times. And I should mention that I am the only guy who had dared to show such expressions in her class. Though she was shocked to see this, she suddenly laughed and said "Yes, you can show off now, but you need to keep up your performance" and the whole class burst into laughter.

It was just my character to behave like that, not disrespecting anyone, of course and I'm still like that :D. Well, if anyone ever asked her what was her first impression about me, obviously you should know what her answer might me and if anyone had asked her what was her last impression about me, obviously you should know that answer too.

So, I guess, last impression was better than the first impression, at least in my case! I had not just one experience, a thousand, 'coz not many people like my character in the very first day itself. 'N in certain cases, people prefer to like my first impression than the last. :P

'N a lot many,especially my friends, like my character in the first day itself, that's worth another story :D

We were racing through the road, formed a group of bikers, all of a sudden, without knowing each other and yelling at each other "New year wishes" Shouting at anyone on the road including the police. Oooh!! That was just awesome buddies!!!!Rash driving at its best...

Be optimistic, freak out, go crazy once in a while and keep rocking........
