"Flip the Switch..."

…a tiring day… 3 drinks of Johnny Walker… delicious Tom yum noodle soup… a cuban cigar another Johnny Walker… take a piss

from where the hell do I remember that sophomore year discussing the “light n dark and flip the switch theory”.

All the jerks had control of their reins yet whipping their life visionless, trying to discover the truth and trying to be philosophers. It always ended up with the discussion of existence of God. I played the atheist every time and ended up contradicting myself… some of them were self-professed warlocks and there was this one man who knew every mythology, every sacred read n every ancient story back n forth... yet not convincing.

A lot of people were amused to grasp me that I claimed so loudly and questioned the existence of God… It was hard for some to hear me denouncing the God and then contradicting that there is some power that drives one… several attempts to pin me down were made but then at some point the warlock and the oracle contradicted themselves too.

Whatever you believe in is just right as far as it works for you. It’s like the light switch, it's right in front of us. Light is turned on for us. But where’s the switch, is there a way to discover it and turn it off. Turn off the lights, flip the switch live in darkness (against ur belief)… its good to know the other side… its harmless to live another facet… another dimension. But then some of us are aware of this switch but simply refuse to flip it.

Its not about God its about a lot other questions; tomorrow never dies or tomorrow never comes… opportunity knock once or there's always an opportunity… you screw life or life screws you… its your destiny or you write your own destiny…

Flip the switch live in darkness… Flip the switch live in light

...Whistler a Paradise in b'ful British Columbia

Thanks Giving weekend Yr 2007... Yup that was my first trip to Whistler and since 'en I feel like spending every other weekend in Whistler Village. There is something that makes me feel like staying there... find a living in that place... keep looking at those mountains... drink beer all day and watch tourists smiling, enjoying, partying... away from all worries. Trust me I am not exaggerating its just something in that place that anyone whom I took there just fell in love with it. Be it any season any day of the year you are going to love it.

Wooppss for all those who don't know Whistler, BC is in Canada and 2010 winter Olympics are going to be there, and I am one of those proud naive skiers who took their first lessons on the mountains of Whistler :). Whistler is just everything that you might have heard about it... Being in Canada even Canadians are tourist to that place, Americans ofcourse are tourists. I think the population is 50% Aussies and another 25% Europeans. Definitely one of the most expensive places (30% more expensive than any other place in Canada). After a couple of trips to the Whistler I have stopped snapping a picture at every opportunity. I just want to watch 'em bare eye all day long.


There is something for everyone in Whistler... Ski, snowboarding, sight seeing, horse riding, mountain biking, zip trekking, Tree trekking, kayaking, snow tubing, clubs, restaurant... u name it its there. Whistler in itself is heaven but you can't describe it without mentioning the road to Whistler. Hwy 99 known as Sea to Sky highway. And I call it Stairway to Heaven (sorry Zeppelins I had to steal it). It’s still not easy doing justice to a description of Sea to Sky hwy's beauty. As the name suggests, takes you from ocean to mountain. Towering rock faces that plunge to the sea. Rivers cascading in bubbly plumes off a sheer cliff. And intense colors that mesmerize even the most jaded travelers. Glittering blue Howe Sound. Brilliant white glacier ice. Jagged black peaks against an azure sky. Alpine meadows freckled with red, yellow and purple wildflowers. Tranquil turquoise lakes. Forests of deep emerald. Each can induce a kind of otherworldly serenity, a blissful calm in the presence of nature’s power and glory.


Paradise....

  • Auto Insurance sends a letter of missing documents and raised premium
  • Health insurance sends a letter stating they are no more supporting the Therapist I was visiting and its out of network now
  • Auto loan company says that they cannot setup an auto-payment and I need to send a check every month
  • Citi cards send a letter that I missed payments and my APR has been raised
  • Car dealer sends a refund check that they couldn’t do the vehicle licensing and I need to do it myself.
  • Temporary registration expiring in next 3 days.
  • Celphone bill is $180… did I really consumed overtime on it.. God knows.
  • Project ship date is after 2 days and fellow colleague is sick.

...and the weekend is o'er"

I wish Monday had a different name which started with a capitol 'F '.
May be if it could swap its name with Friday.
I know it still would have been the first day of the weekdays (though Sunday is the first of week) but the following would have rhymed better....

"Fucking Friday or Fucking F**day"

"There is a way to be good again"

Twas enormously impressive… a pack of emotional punch… an undoubted justice to an amazingly written book. This is a tight, compelling story, with a great message. I was so captivated with a feeling of admiration and mixed emotions that I couldn’t help watching it again and now the book is on its way from Amz to my place. Khaled Hosseini, wrote what he had to and it naturally is a wonderful captivating tale but Marc Foster did a splendid job. The kids playing two Afghan boyz Amir and Hassan were awesome. I think I can speak for ‘Kite Runner’ just like I speak for ‘Top Gun’…. Forever n forever.

Some of the lines in movie convey a very strong message just as Baba(Amir’s father) once said “There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft... When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife's right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone's right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.”

Wow I never thought of this… and now I believe that all religions and followings can be summarized in the above few lines isn’t it.

Not only this the movie is a strong punch for all of them who preach n preach all the bullshit… in another instance Baba said : "I piss on the beards of all those self-righteous monkeys." There are some really strong words in the movie which made it controversial for the year 2007.

The story of young friends Amir and Hassan and the unknown bond they share into the next generation. The mental state of a kid who wants to hide his own guilt and in his innocence how he hurts and lost his friend. This is a story of honor and courage and loyalty and is an unusual tale. And towards the end how Amir returns as an adult to find Hassan's imprisoned son.

See this film for an outstandingly written and filmed story of hope, integrity, personal character and honor, and how much better life is with these things than without, for anyone


Hassan: I dream that my son will grow up to be a good person, a free person. I dream that someday you will return to revisit the land of our childhood. I dream that flowers will bloom in the streets again... and kites will fly in the skies!

Feminism... Do you know what it is?

Feminism: an advocacy of social equality for men and women, in opposition to patriarchy and sexism.




Variations:

Liberal feminism accepts the basic organization of society, but seeks the same rights and opportunities for women and men.

Socialist feminism supports the reforms of liberal feminism, but believes its goals can be gained only through the elimination of the capitalist economy.

Radical feminism advocates the elimination of patriarchy altogether by organizing a gender-free society.

Unfortunately most of the females in the world think that they are feminists and should do anything to promote females. C’mon if you think you stand equal with men, you'll get what you desrve but why to promote one’s election campaign stating that we need a female president… lolzz ain’t it hilarious.

Another bunch calls themselves feminist in a conversation when it comes to loyalty… as per them they are feminist because they believe that all men are bastards. Dudette, u gotta know that you are not a feminist, thats just a view and don’t support yourself saying you are a feminist.

Ladies first, Ladies seat, Ladies queue… fuck you. You violate it n they are all up your ass because “they” think they are feminist grgrgrrrrrrr… what happened to equal rights and equal opportunities. Weaker sex my ass… my physical trainer who is supposed to be the weaker sex can kick my butt anytime when it comes to running… n I love the fact that she gets pissed when I call her the weaker sex.

Feminism: I agree to the definition and NOW I know what feminism means… all you lovely ladies out there need to re-iterate it who thinks they are feminists just because they think that men are bastards or a country needs a female leader.

The Basic Feminist Ideas:

  • The Importance Of Change: Feminist thinking is decidedly political. They think ideas to action. It is critical of a status quo and advocates change toward social equality for women and men.
  • Expanding Human Choice: Feminists maintain that cultural conceptions of gender divide the full range of human qualities into two opposing and limited spheres: the female world of emotions and cooperation and the male world of rationality and competition. As an alternative, feminists propose a “reintegration of humanity” by which each person develops all human traits (French, 1985).
  • Eliminating Gender Stratification: Feminism opposes laws and cultural norms thatUnited States or any other State on account of sex.” The ERA, first proposed in Congress in 1923, has support of two-thirds of U.S. adults (NORC, 2001:267). Even so, it has yet to become law, which probably reflects the fact that most of the men who dominate state legislatures oppose the amendment. limit education, income, and job opportunities of women. For this reason, feminists advocate passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution, which states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the
  • Ending Sexual Violence: Today’s women’s movement seeks to eliminate sexual violence. Feminists argue that patriarchy distorts the relationships between men and women, encouraging violence against women in form of rape, domestic abuse, sexual harassment, and pornography (Millet, 1970; Bernard, 1982, orig. 1973; Dworkin, 1987).
  • Promoting Sexual Freedom: Feminism supports women’s control over their sexuality and reproduction. They support the free availability of birth control information. Most feminists also support a woman’s right to choose whether to bear a child or terminate a pregnancy, rather than allowing men - as husbands, physicians, and legislators - to control their reproduction. Many feminists also support homosexuals’ efforts to overcome the many barriers they face in predominantly heterosexual culture (Deckard, 1979; Barry, 1983; Jagger, 1983).
