Grave Desires

Hi guys,
I believe everyone had a blast on diwali and same here.
Few days back while grazing with t.v. remote and i ended up in Vijay Tv's "Nadanthathu Enna" which deals with true stories mostly happening inside Tamilnadu. I was shocked to see a mobile clipping of a priest with a woman in a room in between Pooja room and disciples area. The so called priest collects pooja materials from the disciples and does prayer to God and in between having fun with the woman. To put it aptly in tamil- "sandhulae sindhu paadikittu erunthaan" or "cycle gapplae aeroplane ottitu erunthaan" .
I was taken back and my mind was working overtime about the incident and blasting him in whatever words i could think of.
After my tempermental outburst while i was coming back to normal had a deep thought whether he is the only one to be punished for his grave desires or many. My answer is .....he is not the only one to be punished but few more left un noticed should also be included.
As men, we mostly crave for either money or women or both. When the greediness in either or both is partially fulfilled thirdly comes the urge for power.
In my story the priest craves for women. We blast him left, right and center but we forgive priests who crave for money in the name of God. Our system has changed in such a way that most of us offer money to the priest to drag his attention towards us and perform poojas in a very special way. More we offer more special treatment will be meted out.
The saddest part is they think offering money to the priest and not offering money in the hundi is like donating money to God which is not the case.
Since we all bribe(i cannot say the offering to priest is offering to God) we strongly feel that it is as normal as we bribe the officials and so its not grave desire.
Money oriented will be thinking about the money going to be offered by the disciple and women oriented will be thinking about what the waiting woman going to offer.
In either of these they are not true to their job.
Our mindset accepts money part but yet to come in terms with woman part of it. Maybe few years down the lane who knows we even think latter is also normal.
I am not here to support my story's hero but wondering the impact of commercialization even to the nucleus level ie.God.
Punish my Hero but also do not forget to punish the money fetish priests bar religion b'coz i feel both are equally grave desires.
The hero of the story was caught when he tried to make all his casanova adventures from his mobile into a c.d. maybe for his future reference or his memory card was overloaded.
I am waiting for your valuable inputs on my way of thinking.

Healthy Recipes

Hi Bloggers,
We blog to share our opinions, fight for a cause, express our anger, our likes and dislikes and so on......
In this blog i am getting a little away from those topics and put across some useful tips to stay healthy and beat stress. This is a selfish blog because i want to keep a note of the tips for myself for future reference as i am very poor in treasuring the articles safely.
Foremost of a healthy living is reducing stress. Adding ginger in our food keeps our mood high through the day and apricots fights headache due to stress. On top of all these being positive, enjoying recreation and meditation serves as better medication.
Junk foods - order of the day in modern world. Oats, oatmeal fights bad cholesterol together with brown rice, green tea and coriander.
Eating apples and garlic will help smokers and city dwellers fight respiratory diseases and power up the lungs.
Sharpening our memory by having fish and flaxseeds regularly.
Olive oil and almonds reduces age related brain disorders.
The more we munch about democracy and politics more chances of blood pressure. So munch about politics and democracy with banana, coconut water and orange juice as these will negate hypertension.
We cannot stop going to fancy restaurants or road shops to have yummy food but Cranberry juice, guava and coriander leaves will take care of our digestive system.
Grapes, wine, lychees, green tea and amla will take care of our fragile heart and help us to enter politics even at 70 and be a C.M or P.M. of our choice.
Yogurts reduces tummy and fight for 6 packs.
We cannot stop staring at the computer for hours together waiting for comments but boiled tomatoes, egg yolk and raspberry reduces eye diseases and help us stare more.
For our older generations mushrooms, papaya and pomegranates to reduce risk of cancer and spinach to prevent knee problems.
I have come to an end of recipes for healthy life and happy blogging.

Bane of our System

Hi guys,
On looking at my previous posts i sound more angry towards our people but i am not able to conceal my emotions time and again.
Here is another one of the same intensity but to a very large proportion.......the thekkady tragedy...
Thekkady is one among the prime tourist destination in Kerala with backwaters like munnar and kumarakom.
A lovely place with backwaters surrounded by coconut trees and tree branches popping out of water makes it look amazingly beautiful. This thekkady in Gods own country has become the yamadharmaraja (God of Death) of 45 people and still counting.
A ferry carrying around 85 people capsized in the middle of water among which 25 escaped, 45 drowned and others still missing.......The reason given by the government states that the boat capsized as all the people went to one side of the boat to have a glimpse of an elephant in the forest.
On interrogation, the boat driver revealed that he did not have experience in handling fibre boat and he was an amateur.
Is this shame on thekkady tourist authorities or our government negligence?????
We cannot blame our government as a whole for tsunami deaths or unlikely floods and famine but thekkady tragedy....purely our government system failure.
Are we taking any preventive measures like
mandatory use of life saving jackets for tourists during boat
Maintenance and servicing of boats
Only experienced drivers for the
Or else are we prepared for this kind of situation like experienced swimmers for the safety of tourists or guards stationed at regular distance to attend critical situations, the answer is again no.
The saddest part of them all is a photo in a newspaper of a boat in cochin plying tourists without jackets for safety after thekkady tragedy is really hard to digest and feel angry over our system.
When we possess zero risk management procedures, how can we boast as Incredible India!!!!!!!
I am eager to contribute for change in our system and raise my voice without any second thought that i am Proud to be an Indian.
Please give me your feedback to enlighten our society and lead India to incredible heights.
