Last 50 days ...

After spending 100 super-hectic days in London (thanks to having made the stupid blunder of stuffing in six courses in one semester while on an exchange coupled with the 100s of social and career events that I had to attend), the last 50 back in India have been really relaxing. 

I have mostly spent this time with family, caught up with a few friends, attended more than my share of friends' marriages, started the process of settling a family property dispute, watched tons of movies, had loads of good food (enough memories of good food now to keep me happy for another year atleast) and done my bit to even the scale of India Travel vs. Rest of the World Travel.

And last but not the least, I made it to the Taj!!! Having been to the Great Wall of China last August on my Beijing Trip with GIFT, that's two of the seven wonders checked off the list. Along with that, spent some quality time with my parents on my 12 day N-India trip.

Now am ready to get back to doing some work - do some last-ditch effort to make Zeopane work and start working on alternatives ... Did someone say J.O.B?

One too far ...

The Pakis have gone one too far on this one ... I mean the Mumbai massacre. It looks like they'll need to have some fall guys on this for sure and lots of terrorist training camps are being closed down (atleast for the time being).

For all the denials that the state is not involved, what do we care since you are not doing anything to stop these people (Dawood and gang roaming around on the streets of Karachi), it is as good as you are perpetrating the terrorism.

For all the talk about you being victim of several such attacks, it only shows what a messy country you are. That doesn't mean you go around spreading your mess to our country.

For all the BS about Kashmir, even if Kashmiris wanted to join Pakistan in 1947 (which I don't believe), why the fuck would Kashmir want to join Pakistan now considering the mess that you are in now financially, socially and close to being declared a terrorist state by the world?

The true test for the world at large and especially the US is to ensure the Mumbai massacre leads to some concrete action and a plan to clean this mess. If we let this stop at a few fall guys and some token gestures, these monstrous elements will just take a break, move to another location and continue to do this across the world.

And India, it's time we do something to ensure these Paki dogs don't keep coming back to defecate on our streets.
