Are We a Country Full of Perverts

Are we a country full of Perverts? Is Women safe in our country? I should not generalize but with what’s happening around everyday it’s really tough not to. Is something wrong with our social system, because it’s not a rare situation? Read the newspaper, it’s full of how sick we are. Reading such news makes me ashamed to be a part of the so-called the most advance species in the planet ‘human being’, it’s even more embarrassing to be living in such a country.

We (Indians) have excelled in so many non- physical fields like science, computer, art and so on but we have a long way to go when it comes to social advancement. To top it, we were the ones who created Kamasutra but what went wrong in between?










Imprisonment is not enough for such offenders. Death is the only punishment fit for such crime and that too not an easy death like shot in the head or lethal injection. Its should be like that video somewhere in the Middle East where the offender was beheaded in Public.

The above news were published in Times of India and The Hindu yesterday.

2012 So Far!

How is 2012 treating me so far? Compared to years before, 2012 is picking up very slow for me. Things are not shaping the way I have planned. My struggle against alcohol is not helping either. No, I don’t want to quit alcohol! I just want to restrict my drinking to weekends only (a big sorry to all the bars in Delhi). BTW, Delhi nightlife must be the most boring in the world and Delhi Nightclubs, it’s even worse. Am so tired of hanging out in joints with nonsense Bollywood songs. Do you know any pub in Delhi who plays rock, blues or jazz music.

Though my life is at its most boring, Bollywood is buzzing up like a bee hive right after it’s been poked by a stick. Oprah Winfrey's visit to India seems to be the reason for the entire buzz. I sincerely hope Oprah will take more from India than just pictures of her with some kids from the slum. India has so much to offer, celebrities prefer to have their pictures published in various newspapers and magazines only with slum kids. It’s like all they want to show the world is how compassionate they are but are they really?

Blame the above rant to my fight with alcoholism. But my frustration has to come out in one way or the other and I am thankful that it’s getting channeled through this blog post.

Oh Yeah, some pictures from this year:





The Republic Day is on 26 of Jan. The above picture are some kind of a special battalion of Army who travels in Camel. I believe they are from Rajasthan preparing for the Parade which will happen in India Gate.


It really was a cool sight. I wonder if they rode their camels all the way from where they are coming.








A street performer outside my office. I watched the entire show but I had to sneak out just before the end of the show because I forgot my wallet inside my work station.



Two weeks back I went to this Music Store '440 HZ' in Lajpath Nagar Central Market to buy a China Cymbal and i saw this cute puppy napping. Did you noticed that this puppy has only three paws.




My Very own Mini Bar - Vodka, more Vodka, Old Monk Rum and a Bottle of Cheap Indian Wine.

Family Bikers - Taking Biking to a New Level

You must have heard of biker gangs like the Hells Angels, the Bandidos and the Mongols Motorcycle Club, on the lighter side there are also mountain bikers who loves biking in mountain terrains, there are those extreme bikers who jumps and flies through obstacles in their motor bikes. In short there are thousands of ways how a motorcycle can be used. There are also different kinds of bikers. But have you heard of Family Bikers.

Family Bikers are a new breed of bikers commonly found in Asian countries like India, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal and Cambodia. Though it may look pretty safe but they are the most extreme of all bikers. Let me not speak for all the countries but at least in India they are the most adventurous and the most extreme bikers I’ve seen.

No, family Bikers don’t ride in Harley’s or race bikes. Their rides are normally very basic, in most case it’s a 150 cc bike but the extreme part is, in a bike big enough for two, you will find the whole family cruising through the busy streets. It can be just the father and two other kids or it can be the whole family (dad, 3 kids and the wife).

Why Family Biking is the most extreme form of biking? These riders don’t give a damn to safety, plus the whole families participate and besides the person controlling the bike no other rider will wear helmets.

Helmets - Family Bikers Don't Need Helmets. Women and kids skulls don't get crushed.


Word of Advice: Take an Auto rickshaw or call a cab, its not that expensive.

Happy New Year! The Random Post Starts Again

Thank god, the whole Christmas and New Year celebration is over. Although it’s been more than a week, the excitement is still fresh. May be it’s because of the many unfulfilled plans I have been planning for the whole year. But that’s ok, am happy that the nine days in the New Year has been nothing less than awesome. Firstly we auditioned for a vocalist for the band yesterday and he was exactly what we were looking for (100% Old School Thrash Metal). Secondly, for some unknown reason my apartment is so clean, though it’s been more than a week since I’ve cleaned it. Normally it takes just two days to bring my apartment to a stable situation. Thirdly, I haven’t been to a bar in Delhi till today and I have cut down on all the stuff that gets me high. Getting high here does not mean ‘high on life’, ‘high on work’ or ‘high on love’. Seriously, if you get high on life, then you have never experience the real high. Last but not the least, this time my office people decided to use a different kind of balloons (I’ll get back to this later) for the Christmas and New Year decoration.


Some pictures of my office with the new (decent), non-vulgar balloons:


The female population in my office can now walk around without giggling or feeling embarrassed with the new balloons around.


Even the guys can cruise inside the office without comparing themselves with the New Balloons. Less distraction, more productivity.

Even the Santa feels more comfortable with the New Balloons around.


New Year's Day Walk of Shame! Not for Me!

Coming to the New Year’s Day walk of shame, it’s nothing new. Everyone have experience the walk of shame. But this year’s New Year’s Day way back to my apartment was very enjoyable, may be because it didn’t drank that much. Bad hangover and dehydration mixed with spine chilling cold weather equals to ‘Not a Smart Way to Start your New Year’.

A Rickshaw puller still asleep. It was freaking cold and it was a sad sight to see . These are one of those moments when you realize how lucky and fortunate you are, no matter how much you carp about your job or life. At least we have a home to shelter from the cold, rain and heat.

The dude in the donkey walked past me and it was quite a sight. Commuting on a donkey in Delhi traffic, must be an experience. But this dude is moving at a much faster rate than me because he doesn't have to stop at red lights and he can squeeze out from anywhere he wants.


What I’ve learned this holiday season: You enjoy more when you get high less.

Doubt’s I have from this Holiday Season: Does this mean that am getting old and I don’t have what it takes to party really hard???????????

Coming back to the office balloon, well here’s the thing. In all out last office festival decorations, they have used a certain kind of balloons to decorate the entire office which look very festive on the first and the second day. But come third day, the air inside the balloons starts getting out and it looks more like a penis. I have some pictures to prove but the balloons looks to vulgar and am worried that BlogSpot might ban me thinking I have started posting pornographic pictures in my blog.
