Change is coming.. All eyes are on America and the new US President Barack Obama. All TV channels broadcasting almost anything about Obama. Few hours back I saw a news channel broadcasting about “What Obama will have to give up?”. That includes things like cycling in public places, his hobby for swimming, His love for beaches, his blackberry and so on.. After watching that telecast I said to myself that I am not sure about the change that Obama will bring, But the change has already entered his life.
Focused by media as the “First Black President”, he is looked upon as a person who will bring change everywhere. Till date not a single President brought change it seems. The fact that he is black is the change. I am not sure that whole US has accepted him as President or was in favor of him. He got 52 percent of the votes. What about the 48 percent? That’s a close finish.
Why I am pointing towards this is because those 48 percent were not in favor of color change. I wrote a post just before election with title Black and White. It doesn’t seem to have worked. When you want change then majority should be in favor of it. This majority should be noticeable. The same situation persists in India where Congress rules in spite of bad governance. Change is always talked upon and never implemented.
I hope this is not the case with Obama. I don’t expect him to bring changes that will change the course of whole world within course of days. What I expect is slow, steady change and positive change. Looking at his support, I am pretty sure that he will be re-elected again after four years. Everyone is against war and that was prime reason for hate for Bush. There are problems which have to be solved by war and war is the lone solution. Then take this as the last option. Don’t hesitate. Take hard decisions that will surely benefit although you may have to face opposition.
Wishing him the best….
Let the change, change everything…
Time machine has always been a fantasy. Thousands of fictional books have been written on this topic and still many more to come. Same is with movies. The classic Back to the future series is the best example I can give at this moment. Although movies on this subject are dried up they will not stop. There will be more in future. This is one fantasy which all will love to come true. Well.. I have good news for you then.
Here is a smart guy named João Magueijo from Portugal who found a great breakthrough. Almost all of us know that light travels at 3 lakh kilometers per second. (If you don’t know then you bunked your science classes. You may skip this post as it may not turn out interesting to you.) But this guy thinks that the speed of light varies. Due to this Einsteins theory will go in vain. This means we can travel with speed of light.
We will be able to travel in space, solve the mystery of black holes and travel through time. Forget about first two, What will you do if you can travel between times? I have many things to do there. Erasing some bad memories will help. But I don’t want to erase all of them. I would love to visit my grandma. I miss her a lot. I would like to transfer Microsoft, Google, Yahoo on my name at the time of their launch. I would also love to hold bush straight when the reporter throws shoes at him.
Many of you will travel in your future first so as to secure it. I would travel into my back life. There were many happy moments which I would love to visit again and enjoy again. Some silly fights which I want to correct. Why should I worry about the future which I haven’t seen??(That’s a mandatory question. Otherwise it means a lot.) Time machine will solve many of my problems.
So I’ll repeat again the same question? what will you do if you have time machine?
As the month of November nears, Goa gears up for International film festival. IFFI started on 22nd and will go on till 2nd of December. In spite of being a movie buff I went for the film festival only once. That too without watching a single film. But it’s a great environment out there during the IFFI. Even if you don’t watch movie you’ll still enjoy.
The father of Indian cinema is Dadasaheb Falke. He created fantastic films one after another and gave birth to Indian cinema. That was in 1913. At that time most of the films, well all of the films were silent movies. Expressing through silence seems difficult and it is difficult. But you can express it better than words.
One of his film “Kaliya Mardan” was screened on Sunday. I was not there as usual. I never knew about the screening. Different thing about this screening was that there was live music score in the background of the film. This made the film to come live without any editing or any mixing. I wish I was there. I shouldn’t have missed such an opportunity.
There have been experiments with some old Black and White movies which were turned to Color with surround sound. But they didn’t succeed much unlike this live performance which was appreciated by many. Now if only there was another screening due to lot’s of hype……So that I can go and watch this fantastic mixture.
I have started digging and am doing it seriously. It’s a great way to get some good stuff and good friends also. Almost all bloggers know what is the power of digg and what it can do to your blog. So some crap(including the contents of my blog) is digged into this network. The best way to get noticed is to create controversies. I hate the ones which are really unnecessary. Here is one of them.
While digging across I found this story. I was stunned. How can one make a survey of such thing?? They didn’t had any other question?? Why color of Jesus? Why god is also pulled into this “color” thing? I am a Hindu by religion and have faith in god. At the same time I think there is only one god above all religions. It hurts when someone tries to differentiate it based on color.
There are 33 crore god characters in my religion. Everyone has something unique. Some are black, some are blue, some are “white”. But they are praised with just the feeling to pray. The reason to pray may be different. Till date I never heard of single incidence where there was an argument like “Lord Krishna is white and not blue” or “Goddess Kali is not black”. We have fear for our god and that may be the reason behind this.
This is really cheap publicity just to create controversies and get hits. Such cheap things should be stopped. Unknowingly I digged this article instead of burying. Now i am thinking of creating controversies on current hot topics. How about a controversial link between Barack obama and Sarah Palin?? That will sell like a hot cake. Someone do it. Let me be clean.
If at the end of this post you are stil thinking of what color is Jesus then close your eyes and let your heart see him.
This is just one of the way. But don’t depend on it. If someday you don’t get any passengers then don’t start searching my head.
