India, Pakistan, Terrorism, War, and some Chinese talk (Opinion of an Indian Guy!)

I am myself wondering why I would write this blog post. I am in no way qualified to speak on a matter as serious as this, and I’m not going to offer any expertise anyways. No political Interest, no knowledge of foreign policies, and no knowledge of “war”. However, being on Social Media – I just couldn’t ignore the present India versus Pakistan dynamic.

India is a complicated place, as I have understood in my 22 years of life. We are united, and then we are divided. We are 1 nation, and somewhere, we are also 29 states and 7 Union Territories. We are 1.3 billion Indians, but then we also Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, and everything else. It’s safe to say, that we have, or we find more reasons to have internal disputes than any other nation. But, thankfully we are a democracy, we appreciate diversity, and with all troubles, we are at all times, together. There are two things specific that unites every Indian in every stretch of imagination – Cricket and Pakistan.

In the last 10 years of myself watching news channels, I have not gone through a calendar year without a terrorist attack in India. Every time, all the investigations give results pretty much the same – just with different names. I’d be honest, I don’t really care about remembering those names either. I think I have heard it one million times at least – “The terrorists came from across the borders.”

The problem starts here. Pakistan won’t accept, and to be fair to them, it’s not something one wants to accept – being home to terrorists. But, then there are stories of I. S. I.  (Pakistan’s intelligence) organizing terrorist camps, and the Pakistani military grooming terrorists, and things are more complicated. I can’t still try to figure out: Why should a nation groom terrorists? It’s not that they don’t suffer. Terrorists kill more people in Pakistan than they can dream of in India, they won’t even spare kids. Pakistan’s economy is nuisance, and they risk being in a situation similar to that of “Syria” in the future.

I consider Pakistan a “Terrorist State”, and my problem is that we loose soldiers, and common people in attacks that are caused due to our neighbor being double faced to handling terror. Yeah, it’s pretty mind boggling that people find phrases called “good terrorism”. I understand Pakistan finds India a “soft state”, but haven’t we fought enough wars yet? Even with another war, we’ve a clear winner, but the problem is that there will be destruction on both sides. A nuclear war is the last thing the world needs to see, but it’s a thing I see Pakistani ministers talk a lot of on account of sending warnings to India on possibilities of war. I find it weird because even in that scenario, it’s easier to wipe off 180-200 million people than 1.3 billion people. That’s a gross fact to put forward, but it’s an unfortunate reality.

If you’re a neutral person reading this, I don’t know what you feel, but recently, very recently – I see genuine hate develop between the two nations. Pakistan has never been a “best friend”, but people have always had a soft side for them, easily demonstrated by some of the love their cricketers, singers, actors get here, but that’s diminishing, and in my opinion it’s Pakistan’s “terrorism” thoughts to be blamed.

I have memories of 1999 – when India fought Pakistan in Kargil – I was 5 then. I am 22 now, and not much has changed seemingly, when Indian media is going full blown on “war” mode. Every Indian on Social Media wants war with Pakistan. Going through Pakistan’s media reports on the web tells me that they sniff conspiracy against Pakistan, and things are stagnant on the issue.

How are things going to get better? Not many ideas. India and Pakistan are always going to have some issues – especially with the prospect of a war sometime, that “hate” factor wouldn’t disappear, but increase. Another problem with a war is that win or loose, everyone looses more than they gain. War is also not a solution as well, unless one of the two nations cease to exist, and if that happens, that’s a problem for everyone involved.

I’ve been an admirer of our epics, and the one thing that they teach is that war is the last option. I personally think that neither of the two nations have reached a stage where they have no other option than going into war.

What do we do now to change the Indo-Pak scenario without war?

Talk..!! Talk harsh. I don’t know if it’s possible , but get the Pakistan military involved too. From what I’ve understood Pakistani politics, the army chief has more say than Pakistan’s Prime Minister himself. Talk about POK, talk about Jammu and Kashmir too, because if terrorism from our neighbor hurts people anywhere, it’s our nationals in Kashmir. I know the idea of talking sounds cowardly, but I have got my reasons for diplomacy over war.

We have everything going right for us in terms of our economy. Our Prime Minister has spent the entire first half of his tenure trying to get more investments in India. While the western world has long time back seen its Internet boom, India still provides an ocean of opportunities in that regards. In short, if we go into a fight with Pakistan, we can’t win, because our growth will suffer regardless of what happens. 

Do I support the Surgical Strike? Hell yeah. Nothing has got me as excited in recent times than the news of Indian paratroopers killing Pakistani terrorists in Pakistan did. I’d love another one of those too, and our Commandos are good enough to do that. But, what thereafter? A 3rd strike? A 4th? Can we kill all the terrorists like that? Can we finish terrorism in Pakistan without Pakistan willing to do that? No, India has to talk.. India has to get Pakistan involved. I don’t know how the top tier works, but the Pak government, the Pak Army has to be convinced that they’re better served killing Pakistani terrorists than Indian soldiers. The former has no problems killing children at schools, the latter lives to secure an ocean of people. I have no problems saying that I personally find the United Nations “laughable” as a “democratic” world organization, and neither China, nor U. S. A. can do much in solving Indo-Pak problems, they’ve their own issues. It’s got to be solved between us, and for that both nations have to talk, and in a way they haven’t done in the last 69 years.

Should all bilateral businesses be brought to a halt till then? Should Pakistani actors not be allowed in India? Should India and Pakistan not play Cricket against each other? It’s pretty simple, when I’d fight with someone at school, we don’t know each other until the tension cease to exist. How will the tension cease to exist? We’ll have to talk our way out. 

The biggest problem with war is that missiles won’t care if there are little children – negligent of all the hate stuff, dreaming in their own worlds playing – where It’s going to go off. Indian, Pakistani or from anywhere, do those Godly creatures deserve to die? We would be fighting a war against “enemies”, but what if withIn the enemy camp exists a creature that wants peace?

There is little chance that any Pakistani will ever read this, honestly 3-4 people will read this completely (1 of ’em being myself), but if you’re from Pakistan, and you read this. Do ask yourself a question – In the most ideal circumstances for you, you beat us in war without one loss, none of us Indians exist, Kashmir is yours. What then? Would terrorism let you grow? Are your policies formidable enough to help you move forward? The answer is a resounding NO. It’s one thing adding up a nuclear weapon one after another, it’s another thing being a superpower. More importantly, will Pakistan be a “happy nation” thereafter? The answer again seems negative. Why does Pakistan need more land? Pakistan can’t really capitalize on the land it has, and fair enough to say that it has a large area for a land of 180 million or so. In fact, so much that it has “donated” land to China for something unknown to me. Dragons are naughty, aren’t they?

Coming to China. It’s reasonable that they support Pakistan in international forums like they do, even if it’s using the VITO to help a terrorist. Really, if I were China I’d be like: 

Pakistan: Hey mate, this is our dude, he’s a good guy. Stop him from being banned in the U. N. 

Me (as China): Dude, that guy is a terrorist!

Pakistan: But, we give you our land.. remember!

Me (as China): OMG! How did I forget? Silly me.. Almost done, babe.

It’s normal that many Indians hate China in this situation. Many have now made it a point to stop using Chinese products. But can we avoid everything Chinese? Impossible! At least for now. We can’t tell everyone to throw their China made phones, etc. It’s not practical. My own Micromax, an Indian company I’m writing this on, was made with Chinese parts in China earlier. I won’t throw this phone. iPhones are too expensive.

 The solution here is “Make in India”. I think every consumer has the right to buy the best product in the market, and Indian youth should take this a challenge to provide Indians with products that are a better alternative to Chinese products. It will take time, but this is the way we can solve problems. The best way to solve our current problems is to become the nation we are destined to become. India is a big nation, and India has to act as a world leader. I want to live in an India that is “terror-proof”. I want to continue being proud of the fact that India never “starts a fight”, and I want to continue living in an India, that continues building hospitals, dams, schools in countries such as Afghanistan. In our nation, we have many battles ahead – as our honourable Prime Minister has sometimes said before too – we have poverty to fight; We still have prejudices and stereotypes to fight too; We are into a stage where India grows everyday, where our nation fights the problems everyday, where people come up with solutions, until that proverbial “last person” lives a good life. It’s difficult, but possibile.

I hate to see our Soldiers die, but I am very sure that even if the most disastrous war happens, doesn’t matter if we aren’t exactly 1.3 people alive, there shall continue to exist a Hindustan, but I am one of those that wants to see on the world map – A Pakistan too, hopefully a Pakistan without the Hafeez Saeed, and many more hypocritic people who can somehow manipulate young minds to fight against people who aren’t too different. It has been said time and again that there are more happier Muslims in India than the total population of Pakistan, but “that dude” wouldn’t get it of course. 

Signing off. Do let me know your own views in the comments section. Eagerly Waiting. And yeah… whatever I said here.. keep it between us.

100 Things I need to tell YOU – the 4th 25 about “love”


Life, love and more in the 4th part of this list article series. I would like to thank Google for existing and helping me shoot at war without having any first hand experience with guns. You’d understand this reference later. Now, please READ.

[You can get the third list about a “life without limits and suicides here.]

0. All the posts combined has 104 points in total. Yet, I have named it 100 things I need to tell YOU for some reason.

0.1 The theme of this “set” is love, hate and mistakes. Now we have a total of 105 points. (Don’t expect me to talk a lot about hate though.)

1. Love yourself.

2. Want your first love to not go wrong? Fall in love with yourself.

3. Love your education, career and money because they won’t get up on you one morning and decide to leave you. [This stuck on my mind from a tweet I read few days before. I apologize for not being able to give proper credit.]

4. In a survey, 88% of women said “money” to be a “very important” part of relationships, and it’s the number one cause of disputes as well. [Article: 10 fascinating facts about modern relationships.]

5. It’s okay to fall in love with your phone. Actually, it’s not okay, but I understand your trouble.

6. It’s normal to fall in love, but you should be strong enough to stand up and walk out of it.

You weren’t expecting that, were you? But, I LOVE humour. You should LOVE a good laugh as well. Makes life much easier. It reminds me that…

7. Love your life. It will stay with you till death.

8. Love and appreciate friendships.

Here’s a short incident from my own life, when I was hanging out with my 2 best friends recently.

F1 to F2: Dude, why are you so sad?
F2: ’cause she is out of town for a couple of days.

F1 (laughs): You won’t be this sad, even when I die.
F2: Honestly, yeah.

Me to F1: I think you shouldn’t have asked that, feels bad.

Myself and F2 had a good laugh about it, but then F1 tried to justify his thoughts as well, and sadly we knew he wasn’t kidding as well.

Thoughts: Everyone of you have a priority list, but if you’ve good friends. Appreciate them.

9. It’s easier to hate, but it kills you subtly.

10. You’ll make mistakes in life. You can fall in love with the wrong person, you may waste precious amount of time in life trying to hate somebody. The best thing is to learn and move on.

11. Never hate people who help you better yourself.

12. I read a heck lot of “love” posts on the web for this topic, like this one on Thought Catalog.

What I learnt: “love” related posts gets a good number of page views, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It was fun reading many of ’em but at times people get a bit too “cheesy”.

13. Love bites can kill you. Here’s a recent story.

Hickey Kills Teenage Boy: Blood Clot, Stroke Caused By ‘Love Bite’ From Girlfriend

14. This is how a “cute” kid answered the question of “What is love?”

I guess my best way of explaining what I think love is would be like the solar system. There are a bunch of planets that can represent people. And then of course gravity holds them together. And gravity is sort of like love. No matter how far apart people are, love can hold them together

An excerpt from this article at The Guardian.

15. We are not the only faithful species, but Wolves, swans and many more in the animal kingdom find a mate for life.

16. Heart break is not just a metaphor.

17. Forgive loved ones for the mistakes, they’re humans too.

18. Love and appreciate diversity. Not all roses are red, but all are beautiful.

19. Loving, and being loved back are two different things completely independent of each other.

20. Smile is the most attractive feature. Bring the best smiles out of people, and never forget to smile yourself even during hard times. Your smile could be someone’s only happiness.

21. “I had a boyfriend for a week.” Not me.

An international friend recently let me know about her one week’s “virtual” relationship. This was a fun conversation lasting an hour with many a laughing “emoji”. It’s an example of love not lasting “forever” and ending without any heartbreaks.

I don’t know why I would mention this thing, but both of us found it funny. It doesn’t actually qualify as “true love” in any sense. It doesn’t qualify as love either. Naughty young people.

22. The answer to hate is not hate, it’s not love either. It’s apologizing for the inconvenience and moving on.

23. I am 22, and have always been single, and I hope that doesn’t make this whole post invalid.

I do LOVE my life, my family, friends and this universe. So, I do have a point with all this, from what I understand.

24. There’s always a voice you like to hear, a face you like to see, and some people you genuinely respect and like for who they are, and keep doing so even when they are gone from your lives, and even with the memories getting blurred with time.

25. Then you’ll also have people who’ll not enter to leave, but to stick by you through all this “drama” of life. If you’ve found yours, good luck. If you’ve haven’t – I don’t care. I haven’t either.

Thank you for reading, and this is the most fun I’ve had writing a list. I hope you have fun reading this too. If not, I would LOVE you for forgiving me.

100 Things I Need to Tell YOU – The Third 25

Life advises, inspiration and more stuff is to be served. Enjoy yourselves. I have already told you 50 things of the 100, and here are 25 more, not counting the zero.

0. Live a life without limits.

1. You’re not supposed to be right all the time.

2. All things having life will always have imperfections, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying to attain perfection.

3. If your only goal is money, you may end up unhappy most probably.

4. Don’t preach stuff you don’t know about. There’s a reason I don’t talk about making money online, even though I’ve a great desire to do so.

5. Not everyone needs to agree with you.

6. Never spend time criticizing a person, unless you are getting paid, or the person requests for it.

7. To the readers: Never judge a book by its cover. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, am repeating again.

To the content makers: A great book cover is a must.

8. Stop complaining about all the people un-following you on Social Media. By posting such stuff, you’re giving more people reasons to bid you farewell.

On a related note, I checked out all the un-follows I got on Twitter today, and it hurts, but it’s okay.

9. If you have too many people blocking you, you ain’t using Social Media in the most productive way.

10. Having a dictionary app on the phone helps.

11. It’s “Bay of Bengal” on the world map above the Indian ocean, and not the “BAE of Bengal”.


12. Be generous.

For the next 100 days, make it a point to give praise and approval to those who deserve it.

[Credit: Lifehack’s article 60 Small Ways to Improve Your Life in the Next 100 Days]

13. On the day of this post being written, a friend of mine who’s into his final year of B.Tech, met with an accident. His bike skit, and he’s got multiple injuries to boast off, and a “thrilling” moment to remember as well. In his own words, he was inches away from being run over by a bus, he saw death.

It’s an unpredictable life.

14. Life is precious, and is worth the struggle. Always.

15. “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” [Source: Internet]

16. Life can anytime get better. Have faith. Here’s an example of a person who shares the 7 things she learned after her failed suicide attempt.

I am grateful I survived. I am grateful for my second chance at life. I am content with knowing that if I die tomorrow I will do so being at peace with what I have done and accomplished. I am even more fulfilled knowing that I do not want to die tomorrow.

17. “Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?” – Albert Camus

18. Laugh at yourself, accept your flaws.

19. Crack silly jokes. Which reminds me of a question I needed to ask.

Q. What did the moon tell the Sun?

A. Baby, you’re so hot. I wish you liked night outings.

20. Ask for help. Find people who are willing to help.

21. Make it a habit to ignore negative posts/talks on Social Media. Yes, ignorance is bliss. Many people use Social Media to rant, and vomit all the trash. If there’s lesson and wisdom coming along, okay. Otherwise, push the mute button.

22. Read and hear motivational stuff, be around positive people. Fill your stock of “reasons to live”. In the darkest night, you shouldn’t struggle to find your “hope”.

23. Stay optimistic, have self respect, confidence, and wit. However, always stay humble.

24. There’s no dead person who changed the world.

25. I can go on saying, and I am not “depression proof” as well. I am not a survivor either, and no expert for sure.

Life has been kind to me, and give it a chance always, there’s every reason, it will be kind to you.

Thanks for reading. Another part to come, will see you soon with it. Till then, let me know what you feel about this set of 25.

100 Things I need to tell YOU – the second 25.

Good Little Indian has more things to say, and so they have another list. Clicking on this link takes you to the first list of 25 of the “Things I need to tell you.” Happy reading, and wishing this makes a difference to you in a good way.


0. Within you is a universe, as great as the one you live in.

1. “Globally, about one-third of food is wasted: 1.6bn tonnes of produce a year, with a value of about $1tn.” [Report: The Guardian]

2. Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day. [Report:]

3. A guy in his 30’s jumped off a bridge. Later a note was discovered from his apartment, where he lived alone. It said:

I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I’ll not jump.

[Report: The NewYorker]

4. Never judge or be rude to people you don’t know. You don’t know about their struggles. ~ Anonymous

5. Be a good friend, before wanting that good friend. All your friends doesn’t need to know about your problems, they have enough of their own. Sometimes, help first.

We need to share our problems with friends, and all of us do. Make sure they are doing alright before you let them know about your recent breakup. Unless of course, your friend can find that funny. Such friends do exist, all my friends know one such person.

6. “I like to think nobody cares about me, I really do. I hate that I can’t forget all those childhood memories of my mom feeding me half asleep. I hate my dad for paying for all my needs, for taking me to all those fairs. I hate my Grandpa, granny, uncles, brothers, sisters for not ignoring my existence. I hate my best friends for being so genuinely awesome, and caring, and all of my Internet buddies too. I hate everyone.”

Bizarre? Okay, I hate none of them. If you know people care about you. Great. If you think no one cares about you. My best wishes to you to find the people who do.

9. “I need to start loving myself,” a friend mentioned on Twitter today. You, yes YOU reader – love yourself.

Even after all my failures, all my flaws, every bit of negativity I have. All things I claim to not have. All fears that exist within. I would never want to be anyone else. I know, there’s just ONE me. You know that too.

10. Be the friend to people, you have always dreamt to have.

11. Respect people.

12. I will keep writing until the last person on earth tells me not to. Unfortunately, I am that last person in my list. Sorry, just can’t help.

13. When you say that you hate everyone. Keep in mind that this writer is a part of “everyone” as well, and has done absolutely nothing to deserve your hate.

The next time you say, “I hate everyone,” you better message and apologize to me. You can find me on Twitter (@RahulSingh_I) by following this link, and on G+ by following this link.

14. Appreciate the little things in life.

15. This quote I came across reading Shiv Khera’s book, You Can Win:

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the striving and tolerant of the weak and wrong. Because some time in our lives we would have been all of these ourselves.

16. This..

Last year, I was visiting Delhi and one fine day I forgot my cell phone in an auto. By the time I realized that my phone wasn’t with me, I was hyperventilating and dialing my number again and again in the hope that somebody would pick up.

Apparently, after a while, when the auto driver stopped at a red light, somebody told him that there was a phone ringing in his auto. He then picked up my call and came all the way back to where he dropped me to return the phone. It was one of the kindest things anyone had done for me.

Excerpt taken from ScoopWhoop’s article, “11 Real-Life Incidents Of People Helping Complete Strangers“.

17. An eye for an eye would make the whole world blind.

All of us have heard this, haven’t we? Not difficult to understand as well.

18. Appreciate diversity.

19. When someone criticizes you, – listen. There’s a great chance that you may end up bettering yourself as a person. However, never forget that it’s YOUR life.

20. Listen to your HEART, and your BRAIN.

21. Attitude MATTERS. The right attitude can change the world for better.

22. Gratitude is the key to happiness.

23. Be thankful for the food that’s served, there are way too many people sleeping hungry tonight.

24. There are no “ugly” faces. There are just eye defects.

25. There’s a chance you couldn’t be alive to see the next sunrise. Leave nothing to regret.

If you’ve something to add to this list, or just want to say hi. Do let me know by commenting. I’d be grateful. Thank you.

100 Things I need to tell YOU – The First 25.

Good little Indian is here to let you know all the things you need to know. You may agree, you may not, but life and writing is about expressing. So, Let’s start with my “life” list.

0. My Twitter handle is @RahulSingh_I

1. Your ability to catch a rare Pokémon shouldn’t be mentioned in your CV.

2. Teaching is easy unless one has to teach.

3. Tweeting is easy unless you’ve set yourself “Re-tweet” goals.

4. There is only ONE you in this universe.

5. This universe also has only ONE me.

6. “When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade.” We hear this a lot, but it’s entirely up to you to choose what you want to do with the lemons.

7. If you dreams aren’t big enough. Great. Fulfil them anyways, and start dreaming again.

8. When you feel tired mentally, you need sleep, friends or exercise. There are just no better medicines.

9. If you think EVERYBODY hates you, start loving yourself.

10. If you have things you can’t share, but they need to be shared. Start writing FICTION.

11. “I want you to know this Mom, I love you.” I see TOO many posts saying these kind of words these days. Factually, there is a pretty slim chance that you’ve your mom in your Twitter or G+ list. Got that?

12. It’s okay if you message first.

13. It’s not okay to tell an Internet friend that you’ll be together forever when you get hurt if they don’t choose your edit as the best.

14. Please give credits. Showing someone else’s hard work as yours is hypocritic.

13. Read blogs. It’s okay if you never come back here, but there are more people than ever sharing their wisdom, and it’s completely worth it.

14. Using the words Sl*t, f*ck, b*tch unnecessarily doesn’t make you look cool.

15. Stop using too many exclamation marks. Just STOP!

16. Don’t expect friends to be perfect, unless you can type 60 words in a minute without any error.

17. Stop claiming you’ve enough reasons to die. If you could meet all of the 7 billion wonders, you would understand what I just said.

18. If you can’t find peace and happiness in a child’s smile. No Church or Temple or Mosque is worth going to.

19. Try having an unconditional optimistic attitude for 21 days. If you aren’t more positive after 21 days. Start again, and so on.

20. Be brutally honest and you risk yourself being killed. However, honesty is always the best policy.

21. I removed 80% of friends on Facebook. It doesn’t help. Subtracting people from your lives is overrated.

22. Play badminton, go swimming, jog when possible, and there’s a great chance you’d remain healthy even when you don’t quit eating your favorite food ( Coming from an unhealthy guy, this can be ignored).

23. If you can’t laugh at this joke. There’s something wrong.

Q. What did the back say to the eye ?
A. You can’t see me!

I told you, there’s something wrong… with the joke.

24. Life doesn’t owe you anything except death, and you’ll find that it never cheats on that account.

25. It’s easier said than done. I can, and will say a lot more things. The need is for me and you to act as well.

Thanks for reading, and do reply with what you’ve to say.

I can’t give a reason but…

1. I un-friended about 80% of my friends on Facebook.

Most of the organisms that had to leave were as I am hoping studied in the same school as me. Some, known faces too, but sometimes I don’t need a reason. The fun part is that after having removed many people, I decided to just minus people who haven’t replied to my messages, not that I message a lot, but I did find 3-4 former classmates to help go. One a pretty face as well, but rules are rules. I do feel bad now, but it was indeed fun while it lasted. In some ways, it wasn’t.

2. I decided to go ahead with a few “cheap” jokes.

#ShortWomenAppreciationDay and #TallWomenAppreciationDay trended on Twitter during the first week of September. As usual, I decided to go ahead with jokes that absolutely weren’t too funny in hindsight. The tweets have now been deleted, but I will tell you what I had tweeted:

(Disclaimer: 100% accuracy isn’t guaranteed.)

Tweet 1 (For Tall women): “OMG! You’re so tall, you’re like a Giraffe’s neck.”

Tweet 2 (For short women): “OMG! You’re so cute. You look like my neighbor’s cat.”

Tweet 3 (For medium height women): Light needs no medium to travel. Why do you exist?

While I actually thought, tweets 1 and 2 were funny, and not insulting, but I realized tweet 3 went extremely wrong. I have never been too big on deleting tweets. So, I did another tweet: “If you’re wondering about my recent tweets. I am just trying to act controversial and become famous.”

Though, a friend let me know that they were really more insulting than funny. So, I deleted ’em.

I still think the first two could’ve been funny. Maybe. Still, I don’t know why I would tweet ’em, but I wrote ’em here to apologize. Just to make myself feel better.

3. My phone’s not 4G.

India is crazy about free 4G internet for the next 3 months with Reliance Gio, but as it turns out – my phone doesn’t support 4G. I didn’t even know until now. So, I guess I’ll do with 2G for now. That doesn’t make me too sad either. Slow internet has its own charm.

4. I decided to let my elder cousin play Wrestling and Baseball on my phone… on career mode.

I had been undefeated as a Wrestler for at least 50 fights straight. He lost, that too when the opponent had only about 30% energy opposite to 100% of my character. Not wanting to loose another match, I shifted him to Baseball. He won the friendly game 5-0. Confident, I decided to let him play a game in the league format. Hoping, he’d help me add up to another win. He lost 16-4.

5. Everyday the desire to be a billionaire grows.

While wanting to be rich is nothing too strange of a thought. I want to be rich, but I hate extroverted tasks. I don’t want cars, or Air Conditioning, or I don’t even dream of having an island, or anything flashy, but I want to sit back and see myself topping Forbes’s lists, and I want to donate lots of money. Then, again… who’s working on my account?

5. I will upload this screenshot.

Error 22! Screenshot didn’t upload.

6. I couldn’t do a proper Teacher’s day tweet..

I have had some awesome teachers in my life during school. However, this Teacher’s day I would still refer to TIME as my favourite teacher. It saddens me, but this is the way how things stand.

Independence, Anniversary, Quotes, Black Cat , Blue Sea Awards – I Can WIN, not really!

Just if I weren’t this busy, I would exactly know when I started this blog, but most probably it was on 15th August, 2015. Hence, this home of my ramblings is an year old. Yay.


Another great update is that there is an award due, and I have a chance to win. How did I get in? Well, this was a long process, and I’ve beaten 99,453 other WordPress blogs and made it to the final four. There are US $5,000 to be won. Sounds good, right? Too good to be true, and you know it.

Still, I assume there’s competition going on, and a fellow blogger on WordPress has been kind enough to nominate me for it. You can find the fellow blogger in “This side of the world.”

The thing with this world now, you don’t play without the rules. The rules here are:

1. Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers. Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.

2. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

Question – Answer Time. Here I go:

Question. What is the silliest funny memory from your childhood?

Answer. If you want me to share how I accidentally helped my friend to a few stitches on his head, all the spectacles of mine I broke or the beatings I took from my mom. All the tears I let flow in public, and some other embarrassments. I am not sharing anything. No way.

Question. If you have a day to enjoy everything at Mall for free, at which section you’re most likely to be?

Answer. Malls? I will probably ask my mom or my younger brother or anyone to take my place, and do what they wish to. I will quietly return home.

Question. You wake up and you find that the world has turned into your favorite movie/novel fantasy. What would it be and why?

Answer. I have never been able to choose a favourite novel. I like a movie called 3 idiots, in which the protagonist uses a vacuum cleaner, and “All is Well!” for a successful child delivery. Won’t it be too bizarre in the real world?

[Disclaimer: It was necessary to upload the image of the award on this post. Since, I didn’t. I think, I’ve been disqualified. Huh.]

Now that I don’t have a chance to win an award. I won’t nominate anyone as well. Why let friends win prizes, you can’t? Sadistic me.

Before I went to hibernation, I had to complete a 3 day quote challenge. The occasion is of Independence, GLI is an year old, and am writing. So, why not write 3 quotes relative to the scenario?

For descriptions, read this.

Quote 1:

When I discover who I am, I’ll be free. ~ Ralph Ellison

Quote 2:

Merciless criticism and independent thinking are the two necessary traits of revolutionary thinking. ~ Bhagat Singh

Quote 3:

To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. ~ Nelson Mandela

I wrote a piece called “A Dream Of Independence“. If you want, please read and reply to it. If not, reply to this. No? Then, pay me through PayPal. Every million is appreciated. Thank you so much.
