Praja Rajyam Party And Its Likely ‘Silent’ Death?

I was ecstatic when I first heard about Chiranjeevi coming into politics. But that ecstasy lived only for a few hours, until I watched the video of his announcement.

After a lot of thought on watching his first announcement, I came to conclusion that entering into politics has some far reaching motives than shameless confessions of giving back to community that gave him this silver screen demonic successful life. I have expressed my frustration and missed opportunity in my blog posts in the following days. And became a serious critique of his hypo critic political game plans, including the infamous social justice drama (or I call it caste exploitation), well before lots of others.

Anyways, rest is history. The ‘silence’ in revolution is true to an extent, just that the silence means a clear rejection of his drama in real life.

Having garnered about 5% of seats, I hope, everybody now understand that ‘people’ did not call him, whatever that means.

Now having a mega flop at ballot box, I won’t expect Chiranjeevi to move away from Politics and go back to movies any time soon. It takes lots of courage and deeper self esteem to accept defeat with grace. I don’t think he has that quality. He nullified the judgment of the people as if it was nothing by saying, he believe it was only important to play the game, not winning it.  (Yet, he is putting all he got again to win in the upcoming greater Hyderabad elections).

But I hope, he will go back to People with the same vigor and rigor he campaigned during the Elections, instead of sitting in Hyderabad and plotting for next election. I hope he continue his fight for the people on the very issues he raised during the campaigns. I hope he continue to fight for each line in his dream manifesto to establish a truly praja rajyam. I hope he continue to go every village and talk to people with the same compassion and media exposure he managed during the first few days and during the election campaign. I hope he will raise funds to organize mega events just like he did so far, this time, to educate people and energize to fight for justice. And I sincerely hope, he will succeed, if he could show his real compassionate side leaving aside the political makeup.

Hope, he will.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Just For Fun : India’s Super Computer

This is a T-shirt I bought almost 10 years ago that depicts the Lord Ganesha as India’s super computer. It was so much fun wearing it then as it used to grab everybody’s attention. And in my recent trip, I recovered it and wore again yesterday. It grabbed everybody’s attention as usual.Look at the mighty RAM he got. 256MB RAM.  Well it was quite a bit of RAM 10 years back. Thanks to Harish for taking a quick snap and sharing it. The iPhone he used got lot more power and memory than one the best computers of that time. That says it all.I guess, I should pull out all my T’s with messages and post it. May be myself and those around me that time could relive some of those wonderful moments.
