I used to write codes, but now I both design and code applications.

The best of all

I have 1900 friends, yet I am lonely.
I speak to all of them everyday, yet none of them really know me.

The problem I have sits in the spaces between,
looking into their eyes, or at a name on a screen.

I took a step back, and opened my eyes,
I looked around, and then realised
that this media we call social, is anything but
when we open our computers, and it’s our doors we shut.

All this technology we have, it’s just an illusion,
of community, companionship, a sense of inclusion
yet when you step away from this device of delusion,
you awaken to see, a world of confusion.

A world where we’re slaves to the technology we mastered,
where our information gets sold by some rich greedy bastard.
A world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion,
where we share all our best bits, but leave out the emotion.

We are at our most happy with an experience we share,
but is it the same if no one is there.
Be there for you friends, and they’ll be there too,
but no one will be, if a group message will do.

We edit and exaggerate, we crave adulation,
we pretend we don’t notice the social isolation.
We put our words into order, until our lives are glistening,
we don’t even know if anyone is listening.

Being alone isn’t the problem, let me just emphasize,
that if you read a book, paint a picture, or do some exercise,
you are being productive, and present, not reserved or recluse,
you’re being awake and attentive, and putting your time to good use.

So when you’re in public, and you start to feel alone,
put your hands behind your head, and step away from the phone.
You don’t need to stare at your menu, or at your contact list,
just talk to one another, and learn to co-exist.

I can’t stand to hear the silence, of a busy commuter train,
when no one wants to talk through the fear of looking insane.
We’re becoming unsocial, it no longer satisfies
to engage with one another, and look into someone’s eyes.

We’re surrounded by children, who since they were born,
watch us living like robots, and think it’s the norm.
It’s not very likely you will make world’s greatest dad,
if you cant entertain a child without a using an iPad.

When I was a child, I would never be home,
I’d be out with my friends, on our bikes we would roam.
We’d ware holes in our trainers, and graze up our knees;
we’d build our own clubhouse, high up in the trees.

Now the parks are so quiet, it gives me a chill
to see no children outside and the swings hanging still.
There’s no skipping or hopscotch, no church and no steeple,
we’re a generation of idiots, smart phones and dumb people.

So look up from your phone, shut down that display,
take in your surroundings, and make the most of today.
Just one real connection is all it can take,
to show you the difference that being there can make.

Be there in the moment, when she gives you the look,
that you remember forever, as when love overtook.
The time you first hold her hand, or first kiss her lips,
the time you first disagree, but still love her to bits.

The time you don’t need to tell hundreds, about what you’ve just done,
because you want to share the moment, with just this one.
The time you sell your computer, so you can buy a ring,
for the girl of your dreams, who is now the real thing.

The time you want to start a family, and the moment when,
you first hold your baby girl, and get to fall in love again.
The time she keeps you up at night, and all you want is rest,
and the time you wipe away the tears, as your baby flees the nest.

The time your little girl returns, with a boy for you to hold,
and the day he calls you granddad, and makes you feel real old
The time you take in all you’ve made, just by giving life attention,
and how your glad you didn’t waste it, by looking down at some invention.

The time you hold your wife’s hand, and sit down beside her bed
you tell her that you love her, and lay a kiss upon her head.
She then whispers to you quietly, as her heart gives a final beat,
that she’s lucky she got stopped, by that lost boy in the street.

But none of these times ever happened, you never had any of this,
When you’re too busy looking down, you don’t see the chances you miss.

So look up from your phone, shut down those displays,
we have a finite existence, a set number of days.
Why waste all our time getting caught in the net,
as when the end comes, nothing’s worse than regret.

I am guilty too, of being part of this machine,
this digital world, where we are heard but not seen.
Where we type and don’t talk, where we read as we chat,
where we spend hours together, without making eye contact.

Don’t give in to a life where you follow the hype,
give people your love, don’t give them your like.
Disconnect from the need to be heard and defined
Go out into the world, leave distractions behind.

Look up from your phone, shut down that display,
live life the real way.

The voice of mine.

When I was trying to pull out myself from the recent events  someone enters as a gazing sunshine in my dreams of reality. I wispered to myself, whether it’s something that will acquire the most out of me or will it be the one, like the earlier. But I moved, I talked, I laughed; the intrinsic thought of mine. I admired the world, it’s precious creature, to the most gorgeous thing-women.

                 Women is just like the soft core of a heart which admires their own creativity. They had sacrificed every aspect of their life, not to mention, they are mother, daughter, wife. Ever since the creepy things had started to accumulate inside my soul, she use to build it out of my contact. She is the one who pulled her eyes at 12.00, just to stick our eyes so that our brain would get dissolve into majestic dreams.
                                    Never it was the case, when she hasn’t dropped her eyes, cover her Face with her saree, infront of elders. Is there some code written over her face? This has followed India from birth. What’s the use of culture when it don’t provide equality? Why should she only and not he?
She is the mother of the son who proclaim her wife as his servant. Not until I reached 5, I developed the sense of secularism towards women. They did to politics, I to women’s freedom-democratise. If I am hanging a bag around my shoulder, if I can put my leg on the accelerator, I want her to do the same. If you want to indulge others by showing your control over your partner, why don’t you become North Korean?

“They come like blessing. Their soft touch makes us silky. Their  voice attracts us like the heaven. Their expressions points everything. Some say they can understand it. Some say they had. But no one ever showed a glimpse of it. “

A STATE THAT’S NOT A STATE

Welcome.   Welcome   And truly welcome.
 
 
Welcome to the state which you can think as of the worst state of the world that not everyone could have been so lucky to see, to live in.
 
Some great feature of this state are as follows :
 
Education:
Bihar government school :
 
Also known as Khichari School, Corrupt Principals, teachers ( most of them ), saves money from kids fund, sold the wheat, rice that are present for the kids, worst pattern of checking the student copies of 12th, even the syllabus is not totally fixed till the last day of exam, teachers are not well qualified.
You can get a certificate of 12th class just by giving some bribe. 
You can get all the question of 12th exam just by spending some money.
The moment the fund came from central government, the first thing that the ministers think is that how much should be divided between them and how much should be used for the welfare of the children. Then the fund passes to lower authority and they them self get caught in the tragedy  to what to do with fund, how much should be given to the children so that we don’t get caught.
Two more things which are major issues,
First they promote caste. I’m not saying because I don’t get any benefit that other lower caste people get because I don’t fancied to get there benefits. I had enough. But they just don’t see the verdict. They are actually blind fold. They says that the SC and ST (caste) children aren’t  necessary to have minimum 75 % attendance and they will still get scholarship even if they have millions of rupees. I have seen students, living in poverty, asking loans from relatives, aren’t getting any help from government. 
And second, is something that makes me extremely angry because I’m a computer lover. The Bihar government website is the worst thing that had even happen to Internet. I feel ashamed of their website and if Internet was a person in reality I would have apologises on behalf of them. They know nothing. Their website says contact us. Email us. Message us. But why don’t they put there “Do whatever you want to do, you will not get a single reply even in your life.”
 
 
 
Health:
PMCH (hospital):
 
If you haven’t laughed in a year, then just visit the hospital. You will certainly not stop laughing for an hour not because of seeing the condition of people but because of the mentality of the authority. Several machines are down. You would find patient rather on the floor than on the bed. No matter if you find a dustbin or not, on the floor, you will definitely find a patient lying on the floor. There’s only 1800 bed, and the patient, to be 3000.
Doctor’s moto “First we would look after our own clinic then we will go to hospital and if we want then will go to a  ward”.
No matter if you find a car parked outside the building or not, but you will definitely find sewage, collection of different waste in front of building. That’s great.
 
 
 
Corruption:
Actually corruption means India
 
In India you don’t talk about two things, First A girls age and second a minister black money.
The officials is blind folded. They do know lot of corrupts people but can’t take a action. Even they do, they are bribed at the very first moment.
We would not talk about corruption here. Every one is corrupt except some very generous one. If you make me wrong on the fact that more 70 % officials are corrupt, I will leave my interest over computer.
 
 
Infrastructure:
Never ending destruction
 
 
Have a look at the government building, police stations. The condition is like India’s is the poorest country in the world.
Every streets is occupied by persons.
They dig holes, filled it and leaves it in rough position ( municipality ).
No traffic lights.
No emergency lanes.
Footpath too small in width and is at a height from the street.
People open their shop  at footpath.
Sand and dust everywhere.
Man Holes on the streets.
No plan for better traffic route.
No lights on street.
Electricity wires hanging around here and there.
Municipal workers are lazy, work on futile vehicles.
No plans for sewage treatment/ water.
 
 
 
Police:
aka nobody
 
 
Every constable takes bribe.
Even District Superintendent of Police ( I have tried myself ).
Bad condition of control room; no single number for everything. How could they expect the people to remember every number. People might get confused with so many numbers for different things.
They don’t have rules, regulation. People aren’t afraid of police. Although they are afraid in some other manner. They don’t wanna help police thinking that the police might make them involved in the cases. They are just afraid of them. And they should be. Because police are of that type. I have seen how they talks, most of them, rudely.
 
 
 
 
Some more:
 
No parking facility.
No wider streets.
Police aren’t there everywhere.
Laziness of every single government workers.
 
 
 
 
Let’s  hear a interesting article:
 
A article created by myself in the free time ( as I love writing )
 
 
 
 
                               “What is a young Bihar”
 
 
What you see is what you get. Well not always, but sometime it do, it really do. Which number you would call if you see a guy peeing on the street. How many numbers are there actually. If you count, you will probably scrambled up. They don’t think that people might get confused, on which number to dial and on which to stay. They certainly don’t have a strategy. A former C.M studied from a reputed government college. A college that solely rely on a entrance test. The college didn’t consider the fact that whether the student will have a impact on society or not. Whether he will give something new to the society. Not even a single college. But other country’s colleges and universities do. Like American universities. But why should Indian reputed college cares about it.
 
Lets turn to another phase:
You have a pregnant wife. She prefers to roam around the capitol. You started your trip, visited the whole city and after some time she started to feel something. You went to the hospital, searched for doctors. You didn’t find one. Rather you find patient lying on the floor, sewage around the floor, no proper waste disposal. Somehow luckily you find a doctor, she goes inside and found that the child is dead. Reports says due to massive up and down movement and due to several physical shock. You know it’s because of the jerks that she felt while in the car because of the speed breakers, pits. You go to the municipal leader, told him about the streets and he says “what can we do, we don’t get enough fund.” He will, for sure, not accept the fact that the fund actually came, but they divided in to their bank accounts. You file a case after 10 days of continuous running to the police station and bribing him some money. The municipal leader also started to bribe the Inspector. The case started to turn against you instead. The police started to torture you, force you to drop the case because you cant afford more than the municipal leader to bribe the inspector. You file a case in the court. Your number came. See the verdict here. Your wife is already dead. The municipal leader dead. You are on the verge of dying. After the first day, the judge postponed the  case for a month.. You dies in between it. And your file get stuck to conduct the dust.
Thanks.
 
 
 
 
What did we learned. We have replaced the word adjust with the word fight. We fight in ourself. Rather we should fight against corruption, work, illiteracy, eave teasing, harassing.  But why should we do that. We don’t have that much time. We have lots of burden over us. Daughter’s marriage, dowry, home,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.
 
So be it. 

Life After Life

Ever since technology booms our live, we get into the way penetrating every term and explore this whole diversity. First it was others, then it comes to us, The Humans, who we are, why we are, who created us. And after that, even if we know or believe who created us, we started to dig the topic ” Do the creator exists “.
Back in 19th century no one knows about UFO. Even if someone know about these terms, they simply don’t believe it. But later it is proved that UFO do exist. All of these type of facts simply tries to point us towards only one fact that

“WE ARE ONLY LIKE A CELL OF A BODY AND THERE ARE BILLIONS OF OTHERS THAT IS PRESENT LIKE US AND THEY SHOW UP TIME TO TIME WHETHER WE BELIEVE IT OR NOT.”

what I meant here is that we could not predict anything related to diversity.
Life’s event is like a chemical irreversible change, unless we record it with a camera, we cannot see it back. Some believe they can see the past, some claims they have seen this but no one have ever proved it. Whenever we see a video, it must have been recorded by a camera. Just like that, if someone sees a past event or even future, then the whole thing must have been somewhere recorded and kept for someone to use his supernatural brain to explore the path to that frame. Then there must be someone who is responsible for these things to record and manage just like our scientific world. And we are not able them which means they are invisible. And their will be others also that cant’s be seen by us but their life exist somewhere between us. The topic “Life after Life” can’t be proved unless we mixes the science and religion. The religion says that After life do exist which means they can’t be seen by us, if it was visible we could have surely seen this. ow if religion says that After Life exist and and is invisible then according to science if two different TERM derived from different process are equal then there is 98% chance that the whole two process are highly interrelated. It means that the frame management process by invisible community and the invisible After Life process are interrelated. And all these facts direct us towards a single major fact that After Life do exist even if we can’t able to see it.
There a thousand of people who claimed that they have seen ghost or some have even feel their presence. I am not saying they are wrong, neither I am saying that they are right, but all these event/ fact have been continued from past and there is, for sure, a reason why these topics have been evolved. The Ramanayas, The Quran, The Bible, all they say about gods, Life After Death. They not just usually make their follower read those. There must be a reason why they are present. Just two minutes back where I discuss about the one managing all the frame of our life, the one, which every body thought of as the one who created us, who can/ will destroy us. It doesn’t matter if scientist have’t proved this yet because their view point is almost completely different from people like us. But one day if they tries to relate all the religious belief with science they will surely know who we are, why are we present here, who created us it the way which we were supposed to know.
