Finally… Indian MEN ignite the spark

#traditionalfamilyactivist activists make a peaeful agitation in New Delhi for Men's Rights (SIF) #traditionalfamilyactivist hold satyagraha to make an appeal for constitution of Men’s Commission to restore stability in Indian families and fight against fake cases manipulated by feminists to victimize men.


It had to happen somewhere some day, right? But starting from nowhere else than India is a bit surprising for me too. A lot has been said and done in favor of women’s rights, feminism et al, which consequently led to separatism, instability of society on the whole, and promoting hatred for men (for sure) regardless of the behavior and character that different men possess respectively.


It has almost become an established perception or norm among the women that “men are all the same” and should be “viewed as the same” because…uh, it’s more hypothetical than real and you know that. But hey, that’s my view and I say this because I simply felt like this in my experience. Of course, when I was a kid it was altogether different then though being raised up in a feminist family, I did have question marks in my mind then too.


“No Commission. No Laws. No Govt Funding. No Care or Support for Men. Why Hate Men so much?” — asks an activist @koolbhav on #satyagraha4men


This, and a lot more angst against pseudo-feminism comes to a platform now. They call it “Save Indian Family” and have a website that provides pretty useful information, case references, and also a helpline number for men suffering from pseudo-feminism or victimized under fake cases. A brave step towards getting back to “normal” aka traditional family norms. I will personally go check out what this is all about and write more after I gather more information about it.


But seriously, has feminism peaked? Or it just went way beyond what was desired of it? I can tell you there’s hundreds of women (to my knowledge) who went beyond ethical limits as an activist and have ruined their families, who regret what they did maybe unknowingly, and want to return to traditional family values but just hesitate to accept it and commit themselves to mainstream norms because they’re so surrounded and buried under hatred-spreading, biased, isolated & frustrated kind of fraternity that it seems to them that they’ll kind of become left-alone if they were to get back to family norms.


Anyways, for all those Indian men who feel like you’re suffering from pseudo-feminism or your wife threatens you or your parents every now and then to evoke any fake case, or if you’re really depressed due to such reasons, here’s the helpline number for you guys:




You can find many more district-wise helpline numbers here:


If this helps even a single person or a family then I’ll start believing I’m a superman:) Until next post, take care.

Simple, yet so strange


Here’s a great simple quote from Lord Buddha:

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”
– Lord Buddha

Give it a second thought and please explain it to me what does this mean.  I am sure it’s not about being selfish or getting self-praised.  If you’re the deserving one then who actually is the provider/giver?

Courage is victory


Courage is victory and timidity is defeat!  It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but it is the size of the fight in the dog that counts. If you are not afraid, you can do anything.  You have to have the courage to stand up to defeat, spot your opportunity and turn defeat into victory.  One man with courage makes a majority.

There are no hopeless situations; there are only people who have grown helpless about them. If you persevere, keep the pressure and hang on long enough, you can wear down any opposition and overcome any obstacle. It is more often the fear of failure than the failure itself that cripples one’s creativity and inhibits the initiative. To conquer fear is then the beginning of wisdom and the first step to success.

Success begins in a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind.
– Walter D. Wintle

The reasons for failure may seem staggering if viewed collectively, but looked at individually, they will no longer be that formidable.  You can either be discouraged and defeated by failure, or you can learn from it and use it as the stepping stone to success.  It is a fallacy as well as a folly to think that failure is the enemy of success.

On the other hand, it is a great teacher – a harsh one, no doubt, but the best.  Don’t be afraid of making mistakes or meeting failures.  often success surfaces on the far side of failure.  If you can manage to learn from failure and benefit from your mistakes, you will decidedly go where you started out to go.  The formula for success may well be to double the rate of your failure.

Failure is not fatal; it can verily be the stepping stone to success if you can put failure to work for you.  The ability to fail, but profit from it, contributes to lasting success.  Making a mistake is not a crime but repeating one is.  Everybody fails at some point in time.  Extract the lesson to be learnt from the failure and try again with redoubled vigor.  There is no failure saved in giving up; no real fall, so long as one still tries.  Continuous effort of itself implies the power to rise.  Seeming setbacks make the strong still wiser and spur them on to greater efforts.

Nothing that comes too easily is worth having.  When you want success, you must be ready to pay the prices which includes braving failures and setbacks and persisting with your efforts till the goal is won.  Achieving success demands total effort.  One has to resist temptations and defy distractions.  If you want to get there badly enough, nothing can stop you.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling; but in rising every time we fall.  Defeat may serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.  Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortunes but great minds rise above it.  Meet every adverse circumstance as its master and don’t let it master you.  Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.  Adversity is the prosperity of the great.  Kites rise, not with, but against the wind.

To dare is great but to bear is greater.  Bravery we share with brutes, fortitude with saints.  If you have never failed, it is an easy guess that you have never known a high success.  The hardest man in the world to beat is the man who laughs in the face of defeat.

Until next time…

Interesting week ahead

Namaste People!

Finally…getting started with the blog posts – thank you WordPress!

Hey, do we know they’re having Presidential elections in November in the USA? Watched Obama speech on a Hindi news channel, of course owned and ‘influenced’ by some American company. I don’t watch American politics pretty closely but it just is a delight to watch President Obama delivering an electoral speech. I remember his ‘Yes we can’ speech but then his hairs were all black, as far as I remember. Good that he doesn’t use hair colors or dyes – at least at office, it will keep the ‘Lewinskis’ away.

Now there’s a great Maratha back here in India who says if the Indian government would give him the command of Indian army, he would fix every problem and get things straight within a month for India. I mean, this guy is approximately 86 years of age, never perhaps in his entire life, ever tried to take a preliminary entrance test of army perhaps because of the fear that he might have to participate in the war against either Pakistan or China, and look what he is asking for!

Local news, Jaipur – JDA destroys encroachment property of Neerja Modi School, Jaipur and others

A surprising move by the Jaipur Development Authority guys came up on Sunday when they initiated destruction of a part of the Neerja Modi School situated in the dry riverbed’s catchment area (Amanishah Nallah, as it is locally known), following the high court orders. Though this move is appreciated but then this episode also ‘certifies’ that the structure demolished was illegal, yet standing tall for quite some time.

Considering the fact that it’s an educational institution, encouraging encroachment and leading by example on how to encroach land, build on it and then capitalize on it illegally, the question is what kind of ethics and morals is the school authority carrying with themselves and forward? Moreover, why shouldn’t the court consider providing strict guidelines or at least an anecdote on such ‘traders’ of education whose only intention is to suck money out of the institution than to provide quality education, with stronger ethics, discipline and better code of conduct?

So it seems like the coming week is going to be quite an interesting and a happening one.  India takes on New Zealand in 20-20 international match, Balasaheb Thakre’s choice of Prime Minister will have the news channels debating for at least two days, lots of birthdays lined up and son’s class tests start this week, besides I am happy to find myself starting on two new projects this week.

Until next post…
