In my opinion, all religions are sacred as they all teach you how to love God. Now there are so many events in the world that I thought to share top 10 religious events with you. Now these are the events that is not confined any geographical location, but the world as a whole.
Winters are approaching. With the arrival of the winter season, all eyes are set on the calendars to count days remaining till the 25th of December. This is the occasion, long awaited and looked forward to throughout the entire year. Teens and young kids are not the only ones longing for the Christmas season, but their Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are equally eager to enjoy the festivity in the air. Christmas is all about Santa clauses, Christmas trees, lights, Christmas presents and spreading happiness to everybody. Every person wants to have the best looking Christmas tree, standing in front of his home. Thus weeks before the Christmas day, people start showing up in great number in the markets looking for the best possible Christmas trees available. Also hustle and bustle is observed in shops selling ornaments for decorating Christmas trees.
I have been associated with the corporate world for two years. I would like to say that the journey has been very fulfilling and challenging. Yes, I would have loved to say that and mean it. Except, I can’t and I won’t. But sometimes I feel, people unfairly criticize us corporates (can I call myself that, frankly am not too comfortable, but for the good of humor self deprecation gets a nod) and their better-than-you demeanor. Yes, we have our ways of smugly patronizing the ‘lesser’ people, don’t tell me you haven’t done it. Yes, we have our ways of pretentiously looking at our [insert your Smartphone]’s during grocery shopping. Yes, we have our ways of giving fancy names for pointless meetings. While at it, let me also mention our ways of pulling out that fake accent once in a while. We have our weakness, but we are, in most cases, not evil. All you have to actually do is talk to us for a little while and you’ll realize most of us have no clue what we are talking about. We are trained to be so. No logical questions please, as Dilbert says all such questions will be treated as insubordination. We use the same hackneyed phrases our management uses, we fill our talks with these phrases. Sometimes to confuse the person we are talking to and hide the fact that we are not learnt enough to make a statement and stand by it. Sometimes we use these phrases because they sound very ‘corporatish’ and they make us feel important. Let us examine some of these corporate clichés and maybe ridicule them a little bit.
There is something holy about music and its ability to express the inexpressible. As someone once said, where words leave off, music begins. You do not need to have Von Gogh’s ear for music to like or dislike a song. Like most people, I need music to wash the dust of everyday life. Before I begin to pretend to be all discernible, I want to establish that I truly believe that there can be no real critique for a song. You either connect with it or you do not. I have felt out of depth more than a few times while trying to compile the list.
A little part of me died as I word-kissed the rear of a potential reader. We all have the urge to shout our opinions on rooftops, this is mine. It may prove to be a futile attempt but I can live with that. I mean, if there are folks who can be convinced that a cannabis influenced franchise on adventures of a spectacled boy and his two friends is worth billions of dollars, I have every right to be optimistic.
Before I begin, these opinions are based on nothing really. There are no parameters to quantify the position of the songs and if I were to prepare a list such as this next month, I would probably scoff at this one. Let us get on it.
The dust is yet to settle after the much famed movement where Anna Hazare and his civic society successfully strong armed the government into drafting a Lokpal bill on its terms and the media is already back to its glorious ways of interviewing the likes of Digvijay Singh. As if it weren’t difficult for the sane amongst us to digest how this man has come to become the General Secretary of our country’s oldest political party.
I do not have any personal vendetta against that man. In fact, pointing him out like I did is unfair considering that majority of those who occupy high positions in our democratic machinery are characterized by shocking demeanor and severe lack of intelligence. The political outlook is so bad that you would be pardoned to think the country has gone to the proverbial dogs.
The Indian Television industry has seen the rise of soaps in the past. Some of the soaps such as Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Hasratein, and Kavi Anjali etc have become household names.
