Towards a Divide....

Terror strikes in India do come as an untimely rain every now and then. The entire country is put on high alert post these attacks. The ministers do their jobs by passing a sadistic note to the media with an assurance that they will not allow the anti-social elements to terrorise our nation in any way further. The people sitting in the opposition do a spot survey added by counter attack on the failure of National Security Agency and off course target the ruling government. We too forget these pathetic incidents after a little while as we have become maniacs to these shocking events. Now what to do, should we wait for one another terror strike or do something really useful for the nation?
Today everyone is well aware of the fact that the backbone of our political system has become so corrupt that it can't afford the weight of the security of the Great Hindustan. Sometimes I got frightened by thinking of a possibility that our nation is heading towards a great divide. We all have become so self centered and lost the true feeling of being an Indian. We have just cornered our feelings to the Air-conditioned 70 mm screens of the multiplexes where we enjoy watching bollywood films like Rang de Basanti to recently colored Naya Daur. Have popcorn and Pepsi and enjoy for the 200 bucks that we have paid; with a feeling of directed Nationhood which flows in our blood temporarily which lasts for 3 hours at most.
It is very sad to explain in words that the current Indian westernised breed has no strength of its own! We lack good leaders and a vision.
I condemn the recently happened serial of unwanted events that rocked the economic city of India, Mumbai. I have no regrets to say that it is not only the politicians but also the aam-aadmi is responsible for these attacks. I can't spare the Navy also that how they didn't notice the said entry of the terrorists in India through Indian Ocean. Were they sleeping that time? For what they are paid? The so called Indian sleeping tigers are not at all comparable in competency with respect to the active Pakistani Pigs. Why our defence minister has dared to take his job for granted? Should we remind him that that there are much more things to do other than just playing cards for his party? I herewith blame the media also for broadcasting the filtered and money churner news only.
The recently much hyped probe of Malegaon has overshadowed the Batla House Encounter and other incidents. Why? It clearly hints towards a dirty political influence.
To cut the long story short I will simply say that with this kind of system and this kind of inhabitants including me we are heading towards a big instability and a divide for which we all will be responsible.
Jai HIND!

मैं हूँ बनिया....

मैं हूँ बनिया,

बस करू निवेश।

जब बदली दुनिया ,

तब बदला भेष!

मोहोरों की चाहत,

सोने की नगरी,

नाना प्रकार की,

चांदी की गगरी।

नई भाषा, अज्ञात वोह लोग,

मिल बैठे संग जो पैसे की झोक।

भूल के दुरी, नए सम्बन्ध बनाने,

मैं चला व्यापारी, दुनिया बहकाने!

वक्त को चखा!
उस वक्त तक,
जब वोह बन गई दवा!

बेफिक्र बस एक अभिलाषा।

नियमित ही बदलना,

एक आशा तो कोटि निराशा!

यूँ वक्त को........

यूँ वक्त को,
काटों से मत देखो!
वक्त मिले तो,
यह डस लेता है...

काश कोई वक्त.......

काश कोई वक्त,
ऐसा गुजरता.
कि हम उनसे,
बेवक्त भी मिलते!

आख़िर उन्होंने पहचानने मैं,
वो देर कर दी
जिस के लिए हमने,
सदियाँ gujaar दी!

मुशक्कत की आहों मैं,
बेवाक मेरा दिल,

तस्वीर...

मैंने सदियाँ गुजार दी,
अपनी ही तस्वीर बनाने मैं!
पर चाँद सी तेरी तस्वीर,
मैंने वक्त से पहले ही बना दी!

वक्त..

उसने जब जब वक्त से ,

आगे चलने की कोशिश की!
तब तब उसके पाव इंसानियत के,

पायदान पर फिसलते चले गए!

निशाना लगाने वालों,,,,,,,,

निशाना लगाने वालों,
अब चौकन्ना हो जाओ!
क्योंकि खंडहर में दबने वाले,
अब निशाने पर है?

गालिब नही तो क्या?

गालिब नही तो क्या?
लिख लेता हूँ..

Mahatma Gandhi inspires Obama.....

Obama also flaunts his love for the apostle of peace by having a portrait of Mahatma at his Senate Office!

Washington: Barack Obama, who today scripted history by getting elected as the first black President of the United States, has always seen Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration who reminds him about the “real message of life”.
Obama also flaunts his love for the apostle of peace by having a portrait of Mahatma at his Senate Office.
The Democrat, who favours US having close links with India, has told an Indian magazine that he was “fortunate” to have close Indian-American friends and recalled the rural development work his mother did in the country.
Through the power of his example and his own unshakable spirit, Gandhi inspired a people to resist oppression, sparking a revolution that freed a nation from colonial rule, the Democratic Presidential-elect had said.
“Gandhi’s significance is universal. Countless people around the world have been touched by his spirit and example. His victory in turn inspired a generation of young Americans to peacefully wipe out a system of overt oppression that had endured for a century. “And more recently led to velvet revolutions in Eastern Europe and extinguished apartheid in South Africa,” the 47-year-old Senator from Illinois had said in his message on 2 October, birth anniversary of Gandhi.

बूझो तो जाने.......

My digital alarm clock has many responsibilities. First, it has to wake me up at 6:30 A.M. to get my kid to school. Later, I reset it for the various 10-minute naps I take during the day.Resetting the alarm clock for a new time entails changing the hour one hour at a time on a 24-hour clock and then changing the minute value one minute at a time. In the worst case, the minute value must be changed by clicking 59 times. (As you can see, it's not an iPhone, Android or other device that allows me to key in the right time.)So, I thought that it would be nice to have an extra button that would advance the minutes by more than 1 with each click. The question then is: What number of minutes, as an interval, would be most efficient?Warm-up:Suppose the multi-minute button (MM for short) always advanced the time by 5 minutes. What, then, is the greatest possible number of clicks necessary to reset to the correct minute value?Warm-up solution
Problems:1. Still, 5 minutes may not be the best interval to choose for MM. What might be better for minimizing the worst-case number of clicks? What is that worst case?2. Suppose that the first click on MM advanced a certain number of minutes, the second click on MM a possibly different number of minutes, and so on. What should those numbers be to minimize the worst-case number of clicks?3. Suppose you were given two multi-minute buttons (MM1 and MM2), and each advanced the time by a fixed number of minutes. What should those two fixed numbers be for the two buttons to minimize the worst-case number of clicks? How many is that worst number?Hint: Suppose one button advanced the minutes by, say 32, then two clicks of that button advanced the minute hand by 4 without changing the hour value.
Puzzle solution
We now have three buttons that advance the time, one by 1 minute and the others by other amounts. Many variants are still possible. For example, we could take away the constraint that all buttons advance the time and the constraint that one of the buttons must advance by 1 minute. If you have a cool variant that you can solve, then please post it, with the solution, as a comment on this story.
