Its festive season here in India. One of the major festival of Hindu Calender Deepawali (a.k.a Diwali) is being celebrated in the last week of the October month. A few days back myself and my father together we went to a Shopping Expo was hosted by CII in sector 17, Chandigarh. In that Shopping Exhibition cum festival there were varied merchants using the platform to popularize their new products in the local and regional market. Going through the exhibition we came across a new brand of oil Canola which was being marketed as much healthier choice over olive oil. Culturally we Punjabis prefer to use Ghee or Sarson oil (mustard oil) for our North Indian desi recepies. Since there has been rise in cardiac arrest case due to blockage of arteries, people are looking to adapt low fat substitutes like Virgin Olive oil and cotton seed oil etc. I was bit amazed by the marketing hype of canola oil and searched about it on net. And the benefit of internet is in its freely available information from general public which most of the time saves one from becoming a guinea pig.
I strongly and openly claim that am against any kind of GM Foods (genetically modified foods) and recently we pitched up our voice againt BT Brinjal. Thanks to Anti GM activists like Dr. Vandana Shiva that people here in India are becoming aware of Evil of GM foods. I will be tweeting this to Dr. Vandana Shiva. Lets see if this can be prevented to penetrate unsuspected Indian kitchens?
West is predominantly Christian world and when ever you step in their domain one thing becomes very evident that even though we Indian have an impression of Western countries as the porn culture, there still has much impact of Christian Holy Book Bible and ethnic communities still preach and adhere to ethical lifestyle. I see the Christian world more like Hindu religion, when I see them chant the name of Christ and enthusiasm to eradicate evil from world. But then the reality is, more and more evil comes out from their surroundings and locale. The corruption of food is still (and also in mystic Vedic culture) considered as one of the grave sin for humans. Is it the outcome of perishing Country Church culture? May be! Any why don’t Christian missionary like Joel Osteen etc raise their voice against evil of GM Foods? The Christ said “Oh my child! share your bread with thy hungry neighbour!”. And what you are doing? Corrupting the food and poisoning thy neighbour.
TV Channels running scam lottery shows, lure mobile users to play some dead easy guess quiz and put them on HOLD to milk money from their mobile credit wallet. Your call will never gets through. this is deliberately done to stretch you calling cost as they get their margin from the amount you spend holding on your call. Only some studio fake call are shown on their show. The callers are usually the persons siting inside studio itself and they will answer wrongly to prompt you to think that its so easy and you are the only one who will answer it correctly and win the money shown on this show. This is 100% fraud tactics and its a scam and the hidden parties are the telecom connection providers. Do not make calls to such shows see the picture posted in here even a five year old kid will guess it that one half of photo is Indian actors (Bollywood’s) Kareena Kapoor and the other half is Ajay Devgan.
By the time you read this blog, I might have already lodged a complaint against such shows with Indian Broadcasting Foundation. You too can lodge complaints about inappropriate content on TV channels with ibfindia.com – Indian Broadcasting Foundation. Here is the complaint I have lodged through ibfindia’s online complaint form available at http://ibfindia.com/onlineform.php
I have been supporter of security measures implemented by Government agencies, whether with use of legislature or through the implementation of technology. But, I could not agree with radio tagging of students. In my view its shear breach of Human Rights and violates the right to personal liberty/privacy and is reinforcement of the slavery/bondage mentality. The Britishers are better in this. They just deport illegal immigrants. In this era of radio/tele communication, there are other/better technology tools available to keep a watch on demographic field and every individual can be tracked 24 hrs of a day. Some of these tools does not require any sort of collar or tagging, then why, there is a need to put a locked tag on Indian students? In case of criminals, I may agree with radio tagging, but for students it just blows the boundaries of a democratic nation theory. This is the worst mode of security implementation, I have ever seen. Mr. Obama are you sleepy? Wake up man. Stand for liberty and protect Human rights of these students. This just reflects colonial slavery mindset nothing more.
