Its been a long time now since I posted anything new here. The last post I made was on September 2nd and since then there haven’t been any updates. There have been several comments in my latest post asking me why aren’t there any new updates 🙂 . I never knew there were so many people checking this place. Anyways was actually a little bit busy since the last few weeks. So, could not post anything. In fact I still have the draft of quite a few posts that I was thinking of posting since 3 weeks but could not complete them.
I even saw many movies recently but couldn’t update about them as well. Anyways now you will all see some regular posts here again as before. Thanks to all those who were curious to know why there haven’t been any posts recently 🙂 . And the funniest thing is that all of them know the reason 😀 .
Got a nice mail forward…… could not resist posting it here…… 🙂
As a daily habit Pintu was reading newspaper.
Suddenly he asked his father, ” Dad! What does it mean by ‘Governance System’ ? ”
â€œItâ€™s like…â€ father said while thinking, â€œSee! I earn and bring money to home, mean’s I am a ‘Money Holder’. Your mother decides where and how to spend that money and that means she is ‘Government’. That maid in our home is doing all the household works, so she will be ‘Labour Class’. You are a ‘Common man’ or ‘Public’. Your kid brother is ‘Future’ or the ‘Next Generation’, understand?”.
That day Pintu slept with all those thoughts. In the middle of the night he woke-up because his kid brother was crying. He wetted the matrices so he was crying. Pintu went to woke-up his mother. She was in deep sleep so Pintu went to the Maiden’s room to wake her up. But there his father was sleeping with the maid. So he came back with frustration.
Next morning father asked Pintu, ” Hey Pintu Darling! You understood the ‘Governance System’? “.
Pintu replied, â€œYeah Dad, I understood! When Money Holder is exploiting Labour Class, our Government is sleeping. Future of our nation is crying for not getting their basic needs fulfilled and in all this Common Man is suffering!”
Was surprised today to see a mail in our company mailing list with the subject “Traffic Tickets in Bangalore“. That person was given a traffic ticket for “No Parking” violation. Initially I thought it might be just a one-off case…. but after googling up a bit, I came to know that bangalore traffic police are indeed issuing tickets for traffic rules violation…. as of now I think its mostly for parking violations only. The cops just give the ticket and we need to go to the police station to pay the fine. No towing of vehicles, no bribes and no arguments. But I guess its being implemented only for cars and two wheelers are still towed away 🙁 . You can check out the experiences of some people here. Looks like things are changing slowly.
This actually reminds me of another new initiative by bangalore traffic police where in they send sms to people about traffic updates. You can check out the blog entry made by jayant about this here. I think as of now, its only airtel subscribers getting these messages. Whatever it be, atleast things are changing now and lets just hope that traffic situation in bangalore would just get better.
