Bihar Election: My take

Image
Bihar election results are out. BJP-JD(U) coalition win at more than 200 seats in a house of 243. The results are simply fascinating. Bihar developed in the reign of Neetish kumar. Nobody can question this development. 15 years before Neetish Kumar(Lalu era) was the big shame. When i was a little child, almost 10-11 years back, the road to my village was full of holes. It was so hazardous that people prefer to go by foot rather than by car or anything else. Now, i don't get time to visit there, but i heard that road is reconstructed. Those days, kidnapping emerged as new industry. Neetish Kumar deserves his share of appreciation, law and order has considerably improved. Education is another area where he did great job. He started a scheme called Mukhyamantri Balika Cycle Yojna, where Rs.2000 was given to every girl of class 9 and class 10 of the state. Result: School drop out rates of girls has decreased. Another move was 50% reservation in gram panchayats. Result: women empowerme…

The Best Half

When anyone asks me,"where do you study?" My answer makes them change the mode of discussion. "wow Goa!", the first expression comes. Then the first question,"have you been to beach?" Generally people say that they are soon going to visit Goa and it will be kind on my part to exchange the phone numbers.(but no one came in last 2 years) But if you ask me, what I like most about Goa. I'll say, the weather of Goa, particularly red skies in the first half of the year and mornings with loads of rain in second half of the year. You can actually take the pleasure of raindrops amidst bright sun. And after couple of hours of scorching sun, you are bound to get heavy rain which feels like mother's lap after hard experience of world.


Same happened today. Sun was at it's prime, we people had an exam. After all this, there was all thunder, rain relieving us from all sorts of stress. Three of my friends started playing volleyball and in next few seconds, t…

Virtual World

In our hostels, social networking sites are banned. Some days back, they got unblocked. Buzzes behind unblocking were, "one of our computer science professors is doing research" and "to utilise the full bandwidth". Whatever may be the reason, number of notifications, friend requests multiplied abruptly. It was great opportunity for the guys to check out the pics of their crushes and then a hefty discussion with the friends on which girl looks good in pic and not in reality. Its great to have 5-6 friend sitting and then shower of comments follows. Status updates were too fast, one example.."chhapalkafita tut gaya :(" (strap of sleeper breaks) and there were 27 comments and 5 likes. Some people after every few hours, open www.brainyquotes.com, pick up a quote on life and phillosphy which they dont understand and put that in their status. And other people who also dont understand them "like" them. Another class of people updates their status wi…

Its Good to be Good

"Action and Reaction are equal, and they act on different bodies."

This is very famous Newton's third law of motion and this law holds true for "almost" all objects.(I am using the word "almost" because i know some of my friends will start commenting the cases where it fails) And in my opinion, it aptly applies to humans too. There was a story in my class 5 hindi textbook, i will tell this story in short. Once upon a time, there lived a king. Once he intended to know the perception of people about him. He consulted his most wise minister. His minister replied him,"What you think of them, people think the same about you." Unsatisfied with his answer, the king told minister to prove his point. The minister requested the king to come with him for a walk along the outskirt of the kingdom's capital city, where people didn't recognize the king. On the other side of road, a wood cutter was coming, carrying a very heavy load of woods. Minis…
