Arvind Kejriwal: A bluffmaster, Machiavillian politician or an ambitious man; who is he?

Arvind Kejriwal if a bamboozler.

Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister of Am Aadmi Party Government:

Aam Aadmi Party’s 49 days stint was smallest as any Government in Delhi. With Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister, this was most hyped Government. He had made every promise which could be made by an aspirant of office. Once he came into power he gave few superfluous freebies to poor people, arbitrarily helped his campaigners and jettisoned the governance on an invented and baseless reason.

It would not be long before majority of people will form an opinion about Arvind and AAP. But here are some events which elucidate the facts for decision making:

Relativity in relationships: I love you Mom!

I love you Mom!

Relativity is the theory propounded by Einstein in respect of speed and especially the speed of light. However, human relationships are also relative to the age and circumstances. Here is a Joke bringing out this harsh fact in a humorous way:

 

A five-year old boy to his Mom: I love you Mom!
Mom: I love you too, son.

A 16 years old boy: I love you Mom.
Mom: Sorry son. I have no money.

A 25 years old boy: I love you Mom.
Mom: Who is she? Where does she live?

A 36 years old man: I love you Mom.
Mom: I told you, she was not good enough for you.

And above all, the best love expression:

A 55 years old man: I love you Mom.
Mom: Son, I have made it very clear. I will not sign any paper.

 

Ha ha.  Human relationships and so much love oozing out of it. Ha ha.

BTW today is Baisakhi. To those who celebrate, Happy Baisakhi.

(We don’t celebrate. Reasons are here. )

Socializing: the art and tips for success.

Art of socializing

Hit the wall

Socializing is a new name to create a marketable interaction with people so as to remain visible on social radar and thus available for hire. Socializing is an art which requires skill. In fact socializing requires many skills. Some of these skills are articulated here under:

1. Socializing with gifts:

Gift is the best way to seek attention. More expensive the gift, more attention it will get. The shrewd person would certainly not waste an expensive gift on a minion. The proportion has to weighed carefully. That is why it is a skill. Continue reading

Election 2014: How India Votes?

Parliamentary Elections in India in 2014.

Elections 2014:

Elections process kick started today on the day of Ashtami, considered auspicious by most of Hindus, which is the 8th auspicious day of the celebrations of Navratra. India shall vote to elect the Union/Central Government in New Delhi. The Constitution of India is quasi-federal. In other words it is heavily biased in favour of Central/Union Government in terms of power. Every adult person is entitled to vote for the Government. This being Parliamentary form of Government, a representative from each constituency shall be elected and all elected representative shall form a Government. But that is only in principle.
Involvement of political parties with their legal power to whip the members of parliament to act in a certain way, makes the formation of Government, a mere formality if that particular party comes into power with majority seats in Parliament. However the larger question is: How electors elect the representatives? Continue reading

Paradox of cleverness

Are you clever?

Inventive person

What is clever:

Dictionary defines clever as:

  1. mentally bright; having sharp or quick intelligence; able.
  2. superficially skillful, witty, or original in character or construction; facile.
  3. showing inventiveness or originality; ingenious.
  4. adroit with the hands or body; dexterous or nimble.

As per above definition any person who has displayed the ability to solve a problem, is clever. All it requires is one-act of cleverness or inventiveness. This definition makes almost every person on this globe, who is not imbecile or idiot is clever.

Problem of being clever:

The problem with a part (3) of above dictionary definition is the underlying presumption that only one clever act is sufficient to make a person clever. No continuity required. Continue reading

Journey from loneliness to aloneness.

Lonely StatuesLoneliness, anxiety, insomnia, despair, depression and aloneness.

We are all alone:

That is a fact. If we see our actions, carefully and with full attentiveness we shall find that all our actions are aimed at covering up the fact of loneliness. We are acquiring pets, making so-called friends, clinging to TV, stock piling houses with frivolous goods, attending every social event but we can not sit alone for an hour. But avoiding crude philosophy let us look into the problem of loneliness without going into its causes. To look into it from the point of a common man on the street.

Do you feel lonely:

Do you ever feel lonely? Most likely answer is ‘No’. Continue reading

Iphone 5: A dangerous security risk.

Iphone 5 black.

Iphone 5.

Gross data insecurity in iPhone.

And you thought your expensive iPhone is secured?

You were entirely wrong. What is secured is the operating system but not the data or at least not the entire data.

Here it was. A sleek black iPhone 5 with OS 6.1.3 gifted to me by a friend who had fallen in love with her iPhone due to its simplicity and ease in use. With usual scepticism for all expensive gadgets I started using it and the smoothness of operations even with all apps running, was most impressive. There was no lag in the camera shutter. Pictures had far more depth and details than expected. Most apps similar to Android were available and certainly far more than Blackberry. Fonts are sharp, even if smaller. No usual ruggedness of Android. But that was end of it.

iPhone data especially camera pictures vulnerable:

Visit to a religious shop-temple-gurudwara:

The religious theater:

All temples, churches, gurudwaras are nothing but religious theaters pretending to be greater than rest of mankind. Just like politicians.

I have tried my best to stay away from these commercial theatres playing the show of ‘God Bless You’. After all if God is The God why would thou shall have human prejudice of favouring only those who flatter the thou by visiting temple, church and gurudwaras. More so, how the places so commercial, as these temples etc. are, can be sponsored by The God unless such God is a proverbial dumb blonde or a moron. Continue reading

Few thoughts about death.

When death is sweet.

About death:

Death is the only certainty in life, its timing is not. While I was watching the funeral arrangements being made for the body left behind, my mind was struggling with waves of thought. What is death? Is it distinct from life? Is life part of death or vice versa?

Sorrow:

Death in ripe old age of 85! Is it a matter of sorrow or relief? Actually the sorrow is for our loss. It depends on our dependence, financial or moral. The less dependent we are on the dead, less meaningful and even lessor is the depth of our sorrow. Continue reading
