2017 :Immediate Reality

Think about December of 2016  – what was different around you?  If you are a fellow earthling, not much.The usual suspects were there, in pun and reality. You had the same outrage, expression, vocabulary more or less, with minor additions and deletions here and there, otherwise, most things remained the same.

So is 2018 going to be any different? Let’s be different by not just hoping, but by doing. By changing things which are in your control for the betterment of your life. That said, then why wait till January 1? Change begins now.

Zero Sum Game

Take a look at any newspaper, news portal, or channel. Conflicts in ideologies, belief systems, political views, arguments, outrage, simmering  anger , blazing rage, hurl abuses, injustice and intolerance, it seems we humans just can’t stand each other no more, just about everything is at war with each other. When will this mad world get tired of these constant contradictions and relax in peace?

Notes on Money

Good money, bad money, white money, black money, blood money,terror money, dowry money, legal money, aid money, donation money, honey’s money, lost money, found money, fake money and now demonetized money! They say the more you have it, the lesser you sleep, but the lesser you have , the more you long for it

Some sections of the media, paid media, working for corrupt politicians, some pseudo intellectuals endorsing cuckoo politicians, black money hoarders, form a heady mix and give rise to a huge confusion to the common man or woman.

Bullet Point

Cross border firing is really getting boring. These skirmishes don’t mean a thing. What’s the point? If you really are up to it why don’t you think about the consequences and then go for it?

Mythbusters : India for Pak

Recently Indiblogger and ZeeTV got together to promote the launch of ZeeTV’s Zindagi channel which will showcase content from Pakistan via their stories or artistes or short tele films. That really set me thinking about my perceptions about Pakistan. and it led me to think of perceptions that an average Pakistani might have for the regular Indian? So I checked out Pakistan TV content on youtube – debates,chat shows,news etc just to get a sense on what are the common misconceptions the Pakistani people might have about India.

Hasan Nissar,Najam Sethi,Zaid Hamid  or shows like Good Morning with Farah and Hazbe Haal caught my attention.It triggered some perceptions of my own and I’m guessing when Pakistani’s hear or see similar content from India it must trigger perceptions. Like the Saas Bahu soaps ,Aaj Tak Parda Fash debates, or the cheesy attention grabbing breaking news from various channels in India.

As we attempt yet another peace process for the umpteenth time, here is a small article which tries to debunk some myths that the regular Paksitanis might have about regular Indians.It gives India’s point of view  from a common man’s perspective.
