The Muggle Traffic :-)

How I wish We were not muggles but were of magical blood and knew few magical tricks like flying on the broom, using floo powder to travel or learn apparition etc etc to travel from one place to another rather than using these heavy vehicles which leave jets of smoke and spoil the green earth. For those who are pure muggles (NON magical folks) and those who never read harrypotter flying, flooo powder are all the techniques in harry potter which magicians use to travel from one place to another. Atleast a flying car a motorbike with wings will do. But alas these fastest easiest and pollution free magical techniques are just fantasies …Its not medieval age either to have chariots driven by horses or use animal transport which is pollution free and deadly slow. In this quick and fast modes of life to have pollution and traffic free travels..few techniques which came to my mind..rather few amendments to the actually existing techniques are like below

Staying in Hyderabad i daily witness the terrific traffic jam in many areas. Especially when it rains you can see torrents of water running through gutters resembling a river with high currents !i was stuck in a traffic recently from 8 PM to 11 PM in night which is actually a 45min long drive. TRAFFIC JAM is the biggest challenge in most of the cities in india. Neither the fly overs nor the traffic police are able to resolve it and they are not able to control the people who never bother to follow traffic rules. Few measures which can reduce the over flowing traffic are like below. Some can be implemented as pollution preventing green initiatives ...and Some have just come as a thought to my crazy TRAFFIC BOTHERED brain so please bear with it
· First and foremost idea is car pooling or car sharing. This actually is not an innovating technology or amendment to the existing but i just wanna state it here as its a great initiative started by many folks here in the city. Especially its useful when many start in a company simultaneously. Instead of a single person driving an individual car if 4-5 people travel in the same car, the traffic jam and the pollution level can be immensely reduced and if there is a jam it would be interesting to have a neighbour rather than having long mobile convo while driving which may again lead to a fine of some 500/-
A cable car or a rope car usage in which the journey is actually with the help of Ariel from one place to another. Cable cars are used in countries like Italy and places like Singapore also as a major transport . Well the cost of maintenance and the arrangement of harbours for this means of transport is definitely a herculean task in countries like india. I don’t know the feasibility of the implementation of this idea but i definitely feel it can reduce the traffic and pollution too
and now this very option is for the Rich CEOS of india who actually own a charter flight and use the same every time they travel in the our mukesh ambani. People who can afford to buy helicopters or travelling in them can actually use them trying to reduce the traffic down on the roads 🙂 Air traffic is not a major problem till date. We never know how it will be if the usage increases!!
Sub- ways : i always feel sub ways can help a lot along with fly overs in diverting and controlling the traffic.If there is a possibility of constructing as many sub ways (underground roads) as there are fly overs then we can divert and control traffic to some extent. The subways should atleast be there connecting the HEAVY TRAFFIC prone areas of the city where atleast heavy vehicles can divert and save the jam
Metro rail is already started in india in places like delhi. I hope many more metro rails come in operation even in places like hyd and a hard and fast rule should be started that on so and so road (where there are frequent jams) public should use the rail to reach their destination but not their own vehicles or bikes. I hope it cant be implemented over night but hoping to see such rule to be followed by atleast 50% of population who care about mother earth!
· There is one more crazy idea which i got actually after watching a vedio on You tube which am sharing here with you . How cool it will be if some one has to do a water slide just to jump in to the swimming pool at their home just like in the vedio below using a long pipe line ;). A slide filled with fun which will even burn your calories which other wise you wont do in your mundane day long stationary job where physical movement is 0. I loved this craziest idea but for implementing it you first need to have a rich home with a swimming pool :-)so its a open question if this can actually happen 😛 :P!! Njoy the vedio below frnds!

And the crazy ideas like flying motor bikes , brooms or flying carpets and travelling through chimneys go on in my head when ever am stuck in traffic jam and when ever I see 3-4 fat innovas Fighting to overtake in the midst of heavy traffic
Hoping to see atleast one feasible idea to be implemented like the rope cars or sub ways and traffic is controlled and inturn the pollution and greenery is retained on earth !!

The Final Destination!!

Whenever LIFE brings me near to you,

I can always see my Dreams come true!

The journey of heart is filled with fragrance,

The heart jumps with joy and my soul wants to Dance!!

Your voice makes the time fly so soon!

The earth seems to be better than the skies and the Moon!!

Thy memories make me glad and also sad,

Lost in thoughts I go Mad!

I wake up in the mid of the night,

There’s no one to share all this plight!!

Every moment now the same thought troubles me!

Is all this temporary the LOVE, Joy and the glee?

With this fear in my heart I ran far from you in to a void!

What all I was left with was Me a more Paranoid!

With these rippling thoughts in my mind one day my fear overpowered,

The fragrance melt and the blossom withered!

Piercing my eyes are the dreams shattered.

“Oh Dear Life! Is this the final destination?”

Why should every relation end in Separation?

Can anyone crack the mysterious puzzle of love?

There’s a saying “You reap what you sow!”

Love is an exception You sow and it doesn’t Last!!

Why should my words always refer to the past?

Your voice once MADE the time fly so soon!

The earth SEEMED to be better than the skies and the Moon!!”

Soft Chaos!!

Day to day I face many situations at office a software MNC where I feel either people are being too emotional or showing irritable reactions which are senseless and baseless so this post goes titled Soft chaos!

Scenario 1:

WORKPLACE: X took up a new task of documenting some thing.Some software companies are more famous for documents rather than the actual programming code !!! She wanted to get confirmed if the template she was using is correct one or she pinged her lead to ask — “Is this the right one to use”…His lead replied not in one sentence but in a long paragraph “SEE X from the past few observations in this project…Its not advisable at all that You ask such silly doubts and clarifications!! Rather than bugging people beyond limits!! Just explore your self and decide…It is good for your career also !! “

X shell shocked to L (THE LEAD!!) : when did I bug you beyond limits?

L : From day 1 every day every minute

X already getting irritable by this unexpected reaction : “FROM DAY 1 You were always hyper or irritated when ever I ask a doubt big or small…How can you say I am bugging beyond limits”

L : it is bugging X…its for your future only am suggesting. Its not acceptable to ask questions at all …you gotta explore…learn your self!

X:in mind (What the F!? How the hell will i learn a new thing which can be clarified only by asking. There is no DOCTRINE published on Our project !!) ….:I will make it sure I wont bug U!”

L: thanks a lot !!!

WHAT THE HUCK!? Does L hav the huck to DEMOTIVATE X like this. ..and Y did L react like that…did he get a good bashing at home from his wife or by nature he is like that –>a hyper idiot ?!

IT didn’t stop there… X made the document out of rage sooner than she is supposed to..unfortunately L reviews it with 100s of review comments…EVEN THAT IS FINE!!!but after incorporating comments….Poor X who for the first time doing this work hesitating to ask doubts ….sent across to some people who are supposed to review(final) but L shouts again rather barks “…ALL THESE ARE SILLY THINGS MADAM!! ” You have to double check before sending to review !

This is wrong ..this is right…oh how stupid to do this?!! Like this the day went onnnnnnnn and on….till X felt real feverish and felt like banging L’s head with a huge hammer

X replied : I did my level best and am about to submit to the other team …..They have no problem..They have reviewed and it’s approved also..!!! whats the big fuss You are CREATING!!

DO u think X REALLY SAID THE ABOVE lines…no she just thought she could have told, but nah !!! X always hesitates, stays polite thinking twice before acting….whether to do that or not. The result of pressure X took and politeness she showed is lot of stress and out burst of anger on friends and other people!

X finally retorted saying just : “Why are you making it a big thing !monitoring only me The document is already approved “ am leaving!

L shuts up!! But how many L’s big mouths can we shut…obviously we tend to bark like them and the situation goes off handle. No peace at work!

HOW SICK OF L!!!!does he deserve commanding people

MARK MY WORDS::::: L is not so very genius….his English is crap…like butler English..even butlers add little style

Scenario 2:

Girls Rest Room !! A big conglomeration of all people who get ready for ever and occupy the whole space in front of mirror!!people who have glossy lips make it even glossier and thick hair flaunt it using the comb …combing it say for ages….Lets say a girl named pinky with bushy curly hair like our Hermione granger comes dialy to rest room..she needs 1hr on an average to get ready…YUP she is all welcome to do that but only when there is no crowd of girls waiting in queue in front of the large rectangular mirror . The platform supporting basin is occupied with her bags , scarf, face wash , lip gloss , chewing gum , loose motion tabs what not!….but does she give a damn ….NO!! after flaunting her thick bushy hair making few jealous around her…and using our beloved mirror for nearly 45min she leaves …Till then her cronies stay left and right to her making it impossible for others to stand infront of her or even just behind her..Even if you say excuse me cronies give a narrow passage for you to fit in but they keep GAPING At you….oh My GAWDS!! Gaping like a owl.,…..I feel all my soul is being sucked in like a dementor does in harry potter

Poor lady who got the chance to comb her hair, hurrily finishes it off and leaves in 5min !! Pcchh

Now whats the solution for this!!

PS: Sorry I was reading harry potter continously these days…so this intervention of potterJ :)and am also irritated so this much of harshness

Scenario 3:

Food courts….People waiting in queues in FC’s and others happily munching the food…as if the other one is wearing an invisibility cloak (oops sorry for intervention of potter again;))……I saw hoards of people discussing and discussing even after their plate gets emptied….Some have sense to leave when you ask them politely or you have glare at them!! coz few people don’t understand politeness!! When you ask some people..can you please give the chairs..we are standing from long..They look at You as if you are stealing their property from them!! Anyway by hook or by crook u grab the chairs but IRRITATION yeah we never miss irritation and outburst from 2 sides even here.

Are these people eating like pigs at the tables licking their empty plates are real pigs and god decided at the last moment….to turn them to humans !why do people sit happy and leisurely when the other is rushing..and when they rush they don’t even bother thinking about others..People who overtake you in a queue at bag checking and at all possible places where there is queue system. !! You have to back off..yes they are in hurry!!you have all the time in the world!

Scenario 4:

The GYM!….For People using the LOCKER rooms as their personal ROOM:—…We are not so rich in our company to have a personal room for every one who comes to gym and do the Gym and for some who simply come for time pass to gape at boys/girls or just dream of doing a work out…when will people understand that there are bathrooms and changing rooms aside…where you can change but not lock the COMMON Locker room for gods sake They change…shower the whole body with a perfume having strong fragrance then open the doors!! I sneeze atleast for 5 times when i enter the fragrance filled rooms. YOU CAN CHANGE when there’s no one waiting or no one around…There’s no hard and fast RULE that you shouldn’t change but when some like watch dogs have to keep watching when the door will open and when they can go inside and get their stuff…it gets really irritating…coz time is precious for all…every one has to catch bus!! And if You are free to change clothes hiding behind lockers…we get embarrassed to sneak in to room and with half shut eyes run out as fastly as we got inside….PHEW!!!….we are not at all interested in watching open mouthed at your nude / semi nude slim body line. We are normal…and attracted to boys ..not to girls!we are not lesbians..So please change clothes in the rooms aside but not in the common room for all

Scenario 5 :

And Irritation of our bus drivers… …bus drivers (FEW) actually bark at the passengers..If they ask to stop or request for some thing….NO POLITENESS …no proper answer…we face the irritable nature of our leads…equals.,…and even drivers!! And inturn get irritable too…I have seen a driver shouting at a girl who doesn’t understand the language spoken here that “ Do you own the bus to ask me to stop at the mall u want to shop” That girl asked politely to stop…and its not on dialy basis…I was shocked…I wanted to ask..but I was sitting in the back seat….when I was getting down…I asked “ cant u stop for a while when some one requests” !! he told…RULE MADAM RULE…You go and complaint to any one..I don’t care…I HAD TO SHUT UP!!

Every one can show rudeness!! Showing rudeness is easy

But being polite is tough..

Being polite has pleasant reactions in return…but being rude spoils the situation…but what can we do if many get rude…we have no option left getting rude in response

Like in Munna bhai (lage raho) Munna says

“Gandhiji ne kaha ek gaal pe thappad koi maarega to doosra gaal dikhao par doosre gaal pe mare to kya karna hai ye nai bataya 😛 😛 “ he says so and bangs the person who beats him

But Gandhi even says in the movie “ The easiest part is venting out your anger and irritation but toughest and strongest part is COMING BACK ….Admitting your mistake or rudeness and saying sorry !!” Not sure if many do that

That’s all friends!! Don’t want to dump more and more scenarios here;) Replies are most welcome

Emotional Atyaachar!!

Tum sa na hoga koi—Aisha:-)

Tum Ho kamaal tum bemisaal tum laajawaab ho aisha …………;)
Aisha was the most sensitive yet tough girl in the class..Keeping things to her self not mingling with many. She had a very small circle of friends…with whom she used to share only few things…We can say her life was routine and monotonous .Morning 8:30 Breakfast, then classes..Lunch break…then back to hostel….there were one or two good friends with whom she used to spend time…She wanted to have a large circle of few had in her college..a Fun TO BE WITH group with whom she can go out…do loads of movies..plan trips!!but ya she was so shy and so reserved that she never entered a Fundoo—jolly group….Getting high grades..presenting papers….being part of work shops, seminars,,,was her routine.. when Fun with friends comes to picture…she was a step behind every one…dont know what used to pull her back 😮?! People used to get inspired by her…some used to praise her infront of every one…Only her ears went red and she used to blush pink ..Never was she able to thank any of them properly or show any sort of reaction. She was particularly NOT SO INTERESTED towards boys…well most of them ended up being flirts!! She believed….Interacting with them is not that needed! It will hamper her future…so she was happy in her small little world…But some rogues who were back seated always in the class and looked almost like rowdies were not so happy looking at her grades , success and she being so famous..They used to boo or laugh when ever she went on to dais for a seminar..or some vote of thanks speech..she never flinched. She was confident and good at speeches ! One day there was a Rose day in college….Every one brought the roses of different colors they favoured Some brought white for friendship…some yellow ..some red expressing love to their fav girls and facing rejections 😛 so on so forth!! Aisha never understood those colors and felt all this was silly !Some boys favoured aisha’s company but never dared to express any thing with a girl who shudders at a simple conversation…so they stayed indifferent. Aisha’s good friends Reema and sujata were absent that day.. She started feeling little wierd.It being the last day of the week..all were in light mood and entire afternoon they were enjoying playing different games antyakshari..dumb-c, truth or dare…what not!! Aisha started getting bored..she was desperate for a good company now!she managed playing but it was deprived of fun! Seeing all the pairs and few large friend groups… first time in her btech tenure she was feeling the urge to enter in a group or be a friend with a boy who can make her laugh through out…:-/ She felt strange why such a sudden desire……With lost thoughts she went to internet cafe in college to catch up with some of her old friends (though she lost touch with many). .The worst happened then… One of the same rogues who were not so happy with her wrote a horrible mail from a bogus id . She opened wondering. What it might be having…It went on like this “Miss aisha…What do you think about your self…Some princess from heaven _#@)#@_#(_@ (beep —it can be censored)….You never talk to any of the boys …R u just very )@(#_@#_@ (beep)……….U will taste the mud..if we want….$)#()@)#@)@ (so many beeps) “ controlling her overflowing tears… She logged off and came back to hostel..she was crying all night.. she shared her plight with Reema in phone and divya in hostel who was her only hostel buddy !! she was wondering what did she do to get such a mail…Her whole semester was spoiled..she went to principal and complained on the whole rogue group as she was not sure who exactly did it !! the whole lot were suspended for 5days..but she was sure it was Govind the one who loathed her the most and he was shivering a lot when called to princie’s room!
So her hatred towards boys increased much more and her eagerness towards increasing the circumference of her circle of friends died ! but the other good lot of boys were angry on this act and were compassionate and liked her much more than before. Then one fine day she got a mail from another bogus id … She wanted to delete..but no one actually can do she opened and read and found out that the person wants to be her friend …blah blah ..the routine mails which we get from unknowns..she sent the mail to TRASH. After a week again 2—3 mails …few fwd mails with nice messages..again requesting her to be his friend…saying he already knows her..revealing her interests , fav color , book so on.. Surprised aisha still not so eager replied.. “I hate these online FRIENDSHIPS and wish to stay away from them..I wish you good luck with others and good bye”. But shivam never failed trying..he kept on sending nice mails , messages , shahrukh khan posters which impressed aisha as to how he kept track of what all she liked 😮 ….she was unable to track who it was…..slowly she got used to mails..she went every Sunday to net …just to check his mails..and have long long conversations…soon she some how felt the Void she was facing in her Btech life got filled………….
She used to express her thoughts ambitions ..desires..her problems in class..even revealed about the bad boy! In no time they got very close…she was going for a 3month summer training to bangalore …where she may have less access to Net! She informed the same to Shivam…and was missing him…The training helped her gain more new friends…few from girls ..few from Good lot of boys !:) Soon she raghu , Bhanu , manoj , ritika and vasu became a good fundoo batch..
she felt now her life is full of fun .Raghu was more close to her..concerned a lot about her..she also felt good about him !one day he asked aisha “Do u have any online friends ? “ then she remembered she almost forgot about shivam…With a perplexed face she replied “Yaaa! But why you suddenly asked “…He said “well i know shivam “ Aisha had butterflies in stomach..she asked who is it with anger in voice…Raghu said “my god! Don’t become red hot now .He is a nice person..i know him..”but aisha left the room as she was little irritated by the fact!..Then by next day Raghu said “Aisha! Dont know how you will feel about this..but Shivam is me...i had no guts to talk face to face with U ..that too after u had had a bad experience with some boy in the class..but at any cost wanted to be your friend so this step ..please don’t mind “
Aisha : “ I hate people who disguise wanting to be friends. I don’t like U! You are a bluff master…U didn’t reveal your true stuff! And i revealed every thing honestly !!”:(
Shivam : “but i was your friend yaar.. i was about to reveal and we came to training here..thought this is the right moment to strike “
Aisha : “Whatever i don’t want to talk to U!!
Shivam : Plz …dont do this..i sent so many things you like na..even SRK posters
Aisha : AARGH!@)(#@(#)@ just go not interested in talking to you
For next one week …..aisha was not in talking terms with raghu uraf shivam. ..Then she cooled down..but was not able to bond properly with him !HE gave friendship band which she reluctantly kept in her bag…yes aisha takes lot of time to get back to her self..or chill..The Final day of college came…By that time every one knew She spoke to raghu only coz he became shivam and he is just very very eager to bond with aisha. She felt some emptiness in her heart she realised Its last day and they will never meet again.. she remembered how she didn’t answer all his calls…showed disinterest in his favours ! she was lot adamant ! but now she felt she was at loss ! ….Adding to the drama raghu was missing..he already left for his home town for some personal work …and they couldn’t even meet after that as he left immediately after exams. and left to US a month after that…Ego ruled for a while .No one called each other. Being very new to orkut/FB .. which already started ruling peoples relations…she couldnt trace him there either !!!She felt its over–>their relation..she got busy with her job ! and almost forgot about raghu! Then nearly after a year and half she got a call from US!! Oh My Gawd! it was shivam…still the same..still full of life….1 and ½ year time was more than enough to chill out and forget about whatever it was… his disguise and those actually felt funny now 🙂 🙂 They bonded up again…They never missed exchanging news, their happenings in life….It feels great to meet raghu uraf shivam and even other buddies in the group …. laugh Loud and share the olden—golden times even if it is yearly or rarely 🙂
penned down this one unforgettable thing in her diary and so she gained a good circle of friends at last though not a huge circle but a close knitted one…..Number of friends you make is always not important..But with whom you want to be friends is important !!and its better not to back off when one takes the first step ! and try taking first step too 🙂
Time makes Memories slip away FROM MIND! but some memories MAKE TIME SLIP Away !! Those make LIFE “THE SWEETEST”:-)
We are born to a Mom dad and we never choose our siblings…but god gave us a great chance to choose
friends !! so choose the BEST FOR U and rock on…………
Special wish to all : One day a crab was running on sea shore !! A wave came and cleared footprints of crab, crab : “Being my friend Y r u clearing my beautiful foot prints ?!” wave replied : “A fox was following Ur footprints to catch u!! so i had to clear them off !” Friendship
means caring beyond imagination ♥ HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY ♥ to one and all
