Token of friendship

I am writing about yesterday and yes it was one of those when you fill touched,surprised,amazed by the fact a friend is there and that friend really remembered you and wished you in the auspicious occasion.Well I am not good with words and expressing my feelings as I am more a technical person (Girls reading this post don’t you worry I am a full on romantic person :P ) but jokes apart,yesterday it was Holi (the festival of colors here in India) I have not played it but a friend really made my Holi special by remembering me and also by a token of friendship.

Well a friend of mine used to say that someone is your true friend when you met that person after ages and then you both just get along and without dragging on the fact that why you both were not in contact/not blaming and asking the other person why you were not maintaining the contact by any means.To me a person gonna be you true friend if at your first met or in your first phone call with him/her you get along very easily and started playing pranks  without any hell lot of introductory speeches.

and who said that you can’t get good and real friends in virtual online world?2009(and also the starting of this year) was a year of getting very good friends for me .Came to know some(not much but yes few) amazing people through Twitter and Facebook and yes they are now my close friends in real life too.

If you read About me in this blog you will come to know I have very few friends and they always played a major role in my life.I know my good old friends are with me and but I also do hope that my few new friends which I got they would be also with me and they would get me whenever they need me.

Wishing you all Happy and Safe Holi.

Thanks for being my friend :)

My take on Politics

On January 11, 2010, in Denken, Experience, India, by Aritra Sen

I know this post going to be very contradictory and controversial one.I am writing at first that I do have respects who have thoughts against my view.Well I have not read any of the mighty books on Indian politics and don’t have any great knowledge about Indian political history but I do believe I have the rights to speak my heart out whatever I know and how this political things shaped out to me till now.

If you go through my Facebook or Orkut profile you will get to know I am not political and I do feel good that I am politically unbiased.I would love to stay politically unbiased in future.I have the voting rights for last five years.I have not given vote a single time.I never influenced others not to give votes but to me giving votes (specially in West Bengal) is like picking up a thief from a bunch thieves.All parties to me are same.I just don’t believe this voting system where you call a party a minority party with no reason.Let me clarify this thing with an example assume there are 4 parties called A B C and D where A and B is the main party and total vote is 10 vote.A got 4 vote and rest of the 3 party got 2 votes each.Now if any of the party from C or D switches(let C in this case) to A then A got the majority.Though D got same votes/same public support as C got,we call D as “minority party”.Is is not fair to me.may be in previous election the party C was with party B.They are switching party in this election just because they wants to have the test of ministry.May be it is the case that public gave them vote because of their earlier stand but you never know with this sort of parties they keep changing their sides.All the parties decisions are subjected to last-minute change.What I am trying to say that this so many parties ideology just I don’t like.I will may consider to give votes when there are only 2 or 3 parties all over the India  which is just a big unlikely thing to happen.

I stopped watching local Bengali TV channels here in West Bengals.Firstly they are biased to a political party or a full-time political channel.Secondly there are no news in those channels except political violation and political killings.Today I was watching a discussion here in a news channel.A politician said there that “My conscience is bigger than my party”.To me its right comment because one just can’t accept everything happening(may be a wrong doing) in party.One should have that freedom to go against what others thinking.But the leader of that party was there to bang him saying that this is not right.Which was truly a ridiculous thing to me.Speaking about the Maoists problem in West Bengal-we do know that Maoists stay in the underdeveloped area.If there is Maoist problem in your state it’s the failure of that state’s government.I am giving you a stat that jointly West Bengal Govt and Our Central Govt spending 25 lakhs(or more) per day to carry out the operation against Maoists and this operation is going on for five or six months.You can imagine how much money has been spent for this operation.If they would have spent this money for the development of that area or if they now spend this amount of money for development of that area like for building hospitals,schools,giving water supply facilities-this Maoist problem wont be there in that place.

Just making the point that-Thoughts in this post are only mine and I have not written this post to influence readers to change their thoughts and I do respect who have views against my views.

I’m Feeling Lucky

On December 30, 2009, in Aritra Sen, Experience, Life, by Aritra Sen

I think most of us aware of this phenomenon.when we leave the Google search box blank the press the I’m Feeling Lucky button then a decreasing  counter comes up.If you have not tried it try it now then come back to read my post.Actually it shows how many seconds we are away from the next year.

Yes it is 2009 review of my life.Its a year with with so many happenings.I think I am back to so many things.

Starting of the year was not good because dad was not fit.He was suffering with lumbar spondalysis  and that time he could hardly walk for 2 or 3 mints.He had gone through a operation in  December-08 but which was not successful.Then we decided to visit Chennai apollo hospital there he had gone through a successful operation and Thankfully he is fine now.But that Chennai visit was a great learning curve for me because there was only me and my mom was there.Mom was always with dad in hospital to take care of him and I had to do take all the other responsibilities.That was the first time I took a mighty family responsibility and which went well for me and my family.

Then I came to my college the forth and final year.I missed out lots of classes and also was lagging behind with the project work.Actually in forth i was hardly in college first was with dad in Kolkata and then in Chennai.As all to be Engineers do,some how I managed with the project works and last semister.After that I finally became a graduate in this year.

Oh I forgot,meanwhile In march 28th I opened a Twitter account.That Twitter was a total crap for me and I was freaking out Orkut.From August I started doing  Twitter seriously.Gradually I realized what a platform of sharing and source of knowledge is Twitter. Not only Twitter is a great source of news/knowledge for me and its also a source of Great friends.I really got some amazing friends in Twitter and I really mean it.This blog is the perfect is the perfect example; this blog is a product of the helps I got from my Twitter friends. Yes I don’t want to mention names, just which I don’t feel good and also don’t like mentioning names. I think they are reading this post now. These friends are one of the best thing happened to me in 2009.I hope in future they will be in touch with me.

Speaking about the Good, Old friends they are with me and will be with me. Distance with few friends is getting big but I still remember their contributions. Yes it is the case that I wanted the distance back in last year. These small things helped me a lot. For my happiness now I only depends upon few close persons and who are with me.

2009 is the year of getting good friends, getting into Twitter and Blogging, becoming more independent, happy, matured, getting back into old Aritra, enjoying life at its pick and also waiting because I am waiting for my joining probably which I would get soon in next year.

Wishing you all that 2010 would be a flourishing year for you all….Happy New Year.

Thanks.

Are we Unbiased?

On October 24, 2009, in Denken, Experience, India, by Aritra Sen

The above question is not for electronics transistors. It’s for all of us. Now and then we came across some situations when ours opinion really counts. Do we always stand unbiased in those situations? Do we always support the right option without any biasness? Speaking about biasness first thing comes in mind is ‘Media’. Now-a-days you get to see some private newspapers and TV news channels completely biased to a political party and this is just because, those Media newspapers and channels are getting mighty amount of financial support from respective political parties. We also get to see some people who are supporting a political party for ages. Supporting a political party is not a crime but the problem is that those people just tends to ignore the wrong doings of that political party and supports that party blindly and keep on watching /reading those biased medias. Generally we tend to give support and priority to our kith and kin in different sectors mainly in job sectors. You will see that some people are just a recommendation away to get a job.

Though staying unbiased always does not help others, sometimes we need to get involved into certain situations to support the right person. Few folks do not protest or get involved into the wrong doings just to stay out. They start to ponder about the consequences what is not desirable.

I know that a blog post will not get rid of these things. But we definitely need to get rid of those.

Thanks.
