how long will it continue in India?

Even a third grade kid at school, when counter questioned says " Look mister, India is a democratic country, we have freedom to talk, speak, shout, shit and bullshit"
How free is India ( or rather Indians) in expressing their thoughts, or putting forth worthwhile actions?
A press editor is arrested near midnight in his office for a reason whom every one thinks is silly(i do not support any of the parties involved, neither the newspaper)
Aftermath: journalists and writers and all other people related to any kind of media carry out rallies and rasta rokos through the state.
1. People and press are not given freedom of thought
2.To express your frustration, create hassles to the already heavily jammed traffic.
3.Whom do police support?Politicians or People?
Am too frustrated and vexed with the cliche "INDIAN MENTALITY"
Come on India, lets C H A N G E
for starters you can learn to cross the road at the zebra crossing and teach some one else to do so.......
Lets all HOPE for a better tomorrow.

So,How is it in Singapore?

People have been asking me this quite often theese days.
Life in Singapore eh???????
So,what do you want to listen?
I would have been delighted enough to give a mono syllable response and shoo you off but my dear friend, Life in Singapore can not be described in one word.
Living a cosy life for almost 2 decades, where you
have to wash your clothes
cook your food
clean your dishes
wash your own loo
is a thing of past and lost glory
Living the monotonous watching movies-bunking college-eating biryani in one of the best food joints in hyderabad-gossiping with friends-never studying life, one fine day I got bored and prayed God to add a U turn to my life and Bingo, praise the lord the U turns come in the form of an admission letter and an air ticket.
Next moment I found myself in a plane munching cheesecakes a few kilometers above Indian Ocean and when I made sure I was high on cheesecakes the airlines dropped me at Changi International Airport. Determined to take life as it comes, I made my way to the exit and Henceforth started to experience, a bed of roses.
Singapore - 4 hours from Hyderabad is a country where
- the maid earns more than your pocketmoney back in India in just an Hour.
- you have to walk,sweat,walk,sweat,walk,sweat,walk,sweat to reach the bus stop
- you take a cab and pay nearly 15 to 40 times the public transport charge
- even TATA's bank balance aint enough to pay a normal fine
- Pig is considered a soup and amphibians are considered Food
- Every non veg dish has a vegetarian substitute
- bubles are in a Tea
- greenery,dustbins,traffic signals, ATMs are everywhere
- roads are smooth as silk
- Snails win the race competing with buses
- you pay 120INR per minute to call India if you are not using a calling card
- you fall out of options to eat esp if you are not cooking
- you have a Q (surprising if you are an Indian)
- you have state of art libraries
- one tomato costs you 10INR
and where you have really cute people adding LA to every sentence
Well I can go On and On, but I got to stop somewhere
All in All Singapore is a sexy city/capital/country/island.
Like a baby fresh from a mother's womb is what the country looks like when it rains
state of art infrastructure, excellent roads, security systems in place
MIND BLOWING airports, discos, condominiums, HDBs with all facilities, Shopping malls, food courts, Great Singapore Sale, island wide Wireless connection, upcoming casinos, convention centres, expo, business districts, regular public transportation, cleanest of toilets, non intermittent power supply, pleasant beaches, diving, rafting, bungee jumping............... Singapore has it all
being an island utilising the space in the most effecient way without choking people's lives
rags to riches is the phrase
the country's grown and became a mature market
For once you have goosebumps seeing how much the government is doing to keep the citizens happy
Am totally in love with the city and will always love it...neva change,mwah
Au Revoir
Ola all.....Well its high time I start blogging TOO....
Am not good at writing something and worse at introducing myself but just cause the blog demands, here goes : a student at XLRI Singapore,with dreams to sail the seven seas,born into a conservative family,trying to break the glass ceiling at every step,sometimes successful,sometimes not, dreadfuly silent, highly unpredictable, doing things my way and spontaneously emitting emotions without giving much thought to the connection between Start and Stop.
I worship Homer Simpson and patronize anything Hyderabadi
