त्रासद सुख – The Frustrated Indian speaks…

त्रासद सुख – The Frustrated Indian speaks….

आज सुबह के हिंदी-दैनिक पर नज़र डालते हुए पीछे से कुछ तीन-चार पृष्ठ पहले के पन्ने पर यूँ ही नज़र एक  बेहद छोटे से कॉलम पर जा अटकी–“कलाम को चीन के विवि में पढ़ाने का प्रस्ताव“. कॉलम उतना ही बड़ा जितना उत्तर-प्रदेश में छपे इस अखबार ने “जोधपुर में जासूसी के आरोप में युवक बंदी” की खबर छापी थी। मज़ेदार बात ये कि यदि इस पृष्ठ पर ऐश्वर्या राय को सम्मानित करने की खबर चित्र के साथ और मीडिया के समक्ष प्रथम बार प्रस्तुत उनकी कन्या क्यों रो पड़ी इस समारोह में की हैडलाइन के साथ न छपी होती तो शायद कोने में छपी इस खबर पे नज़र ही जाना मुश्किल था। उसके विषय में अधिक जानकारी तो स्वयं इन्टरनेट पे खोजने से ही मिली। 82 वर्षीय डॉ0 कलाम को पेकिंग यूनिवर्सिटी ने ये आमंत्रण उनके आत्मनिर्भरता, मंदी और बढ़ती गरीबी पर अरबों डॉलर की कार्य-योजना के सुझाव के पश्च्यात ही दी। …….

मिलावट की माया – The Frustrated Indian speaks…

मिलावट की माया – The Frustrated Indian speaks….

ज़ालिम ज़माने की मार से तंग आकर
दिनोंदिन बढती महंगाई से घबरा कर
हमने आत्महत्या की सोची
फिर सोचा – ज़िन्दगी भूख में कटी है, अब भूखे क्यों मरें
जब मरना ही है तो कुछ खाकर क्यों न मरें
फिर काफ़ी सोच विचार कर
तय किया कि मरा जाए ज़हर खाकर
सोचा – अपने बजट में खाने को इससे सस्ता और क्या आएगा
भूख मिटे न मिटे, पर दम तो अवश्य निकाल जाएगा

इससे पहले कि हम बाज़ार जाते,
जाकर ज़हर लाते
किसी ने डोर-बेल टुनटुनाई, हमने पूछा – कौन ?
बाहर से एक मिमियाती हुई आवाज़ आई – बाबूजी, सेल्समैन, और कौन ?
बाबूजी हम कोबरा इंटरनेशनल की ओर से आए  हैं,
आपकी सेवा में उनका अमृत ब्रांड ज़हर लाए हैं
बाज़ार में डेढ़ की मिलेगी, आपकी ख़ातिर स्पेशल कीमत सवा रुपया है
दो पुड़ियों के साथ बिलकुल मुफ़्त एक और पुड़िया है
आशा है आप दो पुड़ियाँ ले जाएंगे
आप नहीं तो आपके बीवी बच्चे खाएंगे
हमने कहा – भाई, बीवी बच्चे नहीं हैं, अकेले हम हैं
वह आँखें फाड़ते हुए बोला – बाबूजी, फिर आपको किस बात का ग़म है ?

What’s actually wrong with email?

A lot has been written about the problems in our current email platforms. A quick search with “problems with email” on any of the prominent tech blogs will populate a whole lot of articles convincing us why email is no more good. Why it isn’t working anymore? Have a quick look at the reference links given below and you will get a hang of what are we taking about.

These and more of such articles left me pondering, “Is email actually bad?” And if yes, why isn’t anyone been able to fix it.

26th Jan, Snippets of the year that was!

Good compilation.. thnx for sharing these valuable info and specially for the 1950 parade.. 🙂



The first organ transplant…
The first payment made by a credit card in New York…
U.S. President Truman ordering Construction of Hydrogen Bomb…
and The Korean War…

A developing country who had gained independence just three years prior became a republic in the true sense. 26 January, as we Proud Indians celebrate our Republic day.  This day was selected, because it was this day in 1930 when the Declration of Indian Independence was passed.

As I sit in my new york apartment sitting thousands of miles away from my homeland at 2:00 am, watching Sharapova scream her lungs out at the australian open, reading all the wishes by news channels, tweeple and socayers (social sayers); I start to imagine the first announcement, the first parade and all the other small things that were part of this historic day.

I started to reminisce about the few…

Be the Change you want to See

It is almost 4:04 AM in morning but I couldn’t resist myself from posting this as I think this is one of the most important topic for all mankind for which I can deprive myself of sleep .

I was commenting on a post of one of my most Inspiring FB friend Carlos E. Jean-Gilles. He was discussing on the necessity of taking required action.

In his words :

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.Edmund Burke

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)


My wife and I have had several of our windows broken because we believe in the above statements. After our windows were broken because my wife made an anonymous call to Missouri’s Department of Social Services when we had reasons to suspect that a toddler’s life was at stake (as a psychologist, she was required to make that call), the family in question retaliated by filing trumped up charges against me and we were subject to a nightmarish three-month period where we were harassed in the middle of the night by these people. A week ago, I was pulling out of my driveway with our son in the car when the seventeen-year-old boy who conducted most of the intimidation rampage against us was assaulting his girlfriend in bright daylight. Had I had my camera with me, I would have videotaped it all; unfortunately, I didn’t, but that experience thought me a lesson–to have my smartphone at the ready at all times. He was so convinced that his retaliation tactics and intimidation work that he was oblivious to the possibility that I would do anything about it. I can’t force his girlfriend to press charges against him, but I certainly did report it. The cops, of course, will not do anything about it because the incident has to be reported immediately after the fact. The problem with that is by the time one calls the cops, he would have been long gone, and he would have made sure that he wasn’t at home when the cops came to his house. Since it was a minor incident, the cops would have filed their report and nothing would have been done since they have bigger fishes to fry.

The cops are under the delusion that by putting someone like that in jail will resolve the problem. I don’t think it will. This kid is a timed bomb waiting to explode. It’s just a matter of time before he kills someone or he’s killed by someone else. We must speak up! We must have the courage to be the change that we want to see in the world.


I totally agree to his view points and posted the following as comment. Hope this post can inspire you to take your stand and just not sit back and watch.

In my words:

 keeping silence and staying back from taking the necessary actions has never been a solution to any problem. The one who has taken needful action has only been rewarded with golden letters in pages of history

I want to quote a beautiful verse from our sacred text “Bhagwad Geeta” where  Lord Krishna gives importance to “karma” or deeds/actions

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन  |
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर मा ते संगोस्तवाकर्मनि ||

English : 
Karmanyewaadhikaaraste maa faleshu kadaachana
Maa karmfal heturbhooh maa te sango-astvakarmani.

To action alone hast thou a right and never at all to its fruits; let not the fruits of action be thy motive; neither let there be in thee any attachment to inaction

It says that we should not run away from doing our duty thinking about outcomes. Because we don’t have any control over the outcomes. We only have control over our actions and we must never run away from doing action that is required. Outcome is in the hands of GOD if we perform our action in right manner the outcome will surely be a good reward that may or may not be instantaneous.

People run away from taking some required action only due to fear of some outcome that they think will be in negative way. But who are we to judge a outcome in negative or positive? If you believe in God then you must have faith that God will never give a negative outcome to your positive deeds. And if you believe in Science then why do you forget Newton’s third Law of Motion that states every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So if we take a good action that is required it implies we will get back good reaction(feedback) in reply, it may not be instantaneous though (in real life). Some may argue that standing and facing some challenge may be harmful to ourself but then I would like to say that if we show that courage to stand up and face a challenge may be it could create a revolutionary change of mind (inspiration) in others who are staying back to join hands in facing the challenge. If the challenge is bigger and no one is around may be in extreme case we have to face a life-challenging situation but remember that a martyrdom for a good cause can never go to waste. Revolutions happens only when someone stands in front of a challenge to face it. If we learn to face every challenges we come across with boldness and fearlessness then that would be the biggest revolution the mankind can have.

Hoping to get your views on this topic which needs attention of every individual.

Lets be the change we want to see.

eLitmus Placement Paper

So this is my first addition in Placement Paper which was added today. You can find it in the Placement Paper page.

eLitmus is a first-of-its-kind service in the world. Since it was launched in 2005, eLitmus has been redefining how fresher and entry-level recruitment is done in India. pH Test evaluates job seekers based on a variety of parameters, and grades them nationwide using an advanced statistical model, resulting in a pH Score for each candidate.

eLitmus has been one of the toughest test which requires CAT level preparation. And as there are no previous paper available anywhere it gets more tougher to even predict its pattern. As I was preparing for this particular exam I came across some papers which were tagged as eLitmus papers. I am sharing them here.

I will continue to add to it in future as I get any new papers. You can straight away head to for this page.

Hope it helps you in your preparation. Good Luck for future.
