A Lavish Wedding!- There is nothing much to be criticized

NRI Business tycoon Ravi Pillai's daughter Arathi got married to Adithya Vishnu. Wedding Ceremony worth- 55 Cr. INR.
I just cannot know why do people get pissed off and feel annoyed of this! After all it is his damn personal money, it is his sole daughter and his personal stuff- whatever maybe. 
I should say that after
all the money is in the economy now!
People often say that marriage happens in heaven. So, if that is the case, then the rich has got the right to create their own heaven for them while the poor can do it in their own way. The thing is that one should not disturb the other one's life. 10 Cr. has been given as charity. 10 Cr. comprises of about 15-20% of the total wedding expense which is obviously a great thing.
For those criticizers out there, I have one question towards you. "If you arrange a wedding of Rs. 5 Lakhs for your daughter/son, would you mind donating 1 lakh (20% of it) to any charitable institutions?". Obviously NO and you can have enough reasons for your answer. There is NO much difference between such Business tycoons and those ordinary people who take loans and mortgage their properties so as to get their daughters married, which could be conducted in a much simpler way in some register office. Now please show some self respect. Be a little more broad minded and introspective and come out of your world of hypocrisies. Whatever maybe, please let it be and wish the couple a happily ever after life.
.
PS: even Big budget movies are being made to hide black money;
Huge Election propaganda and Political Party meetings are being held at a budget of Crores and all those are snatched directly/indirectly from the common man.
The issue comes when a rich man does something personal for him. That's all.
Being poor is not a crime, being rich either.
Crime is in how we do end up in being someone.
PEACE OUT

When Cattle becomes DOG

Last day Someone asked me: "Rahul, Why can't you write something upon issues like BEEF and STRAY DOGS!? "
Well I admit, anyone can come out of their homes and show their asses off since these are the trend setting topics these days. Well, I have nothing to comment upon.
Personally,
>> I have just tasted Beef once and in either ways, I don't like it.
>> I had few narrow escapes from stray dogs and that was not a fine experience indeed!.
.
Now it is my personal choice to determine what to eat and what not but I don't support any of those so called inhuman 'beef ceremonies' being held and excused on that cause.
It is my true reflex part that comes out when I try to knock down a stray dog that comes to attack me.
And Now it is My Damn personal choice to decide what to WRITE and What NOT!
NB: For those fellas who are waiting to make insulting and provocative comments- It is my choice to Slam/Block you 
or not!

Peace out :)
have a nice day

Peeping into the Indo-Arabian Catwalk! - by RAHUL SHARMA


The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visit to Saudi Arabia and U.A.E, is being celebrated profoundly and has of course  paved a new way for the  Indo-Arab bilateral relationships. However, things are to be viewed in much more pragmatic way so as to bring about a better change to the current situation that prevails within and beyond the Indian diaspora.
 ''Looking West" and "Looking East" has become a global trend among the Developing countries of the world these days which includes India as well as Saudi Arabia. Checking back, Saudi Arabia had been on a better form with India on bilateral relationships. The trade relations between the two countries do exist since 1000 AD, however the strategic relationship started profoundly since 1955 apropos the "5 Principle Peace Treaty of co-existence" in cognizant with the Non-Alignment Movement during the times of Nehru. Appreciable steps were taken by former Indian PM Dr. Manmohan Singh so as to keep the country which can be considered as one among the major shareholders of the Indian FDI ventures within the circle. Now, again it is appreciable that Modi has tried to enhance the bond further.

Narendra Modi's recent visit to Saudi Arabia should never be seen as a mere trip since India has already tied a knot with Tel-Aviv, making a point in history that could create irritation among few Arab countries for sure. Strings are to be coordinated well to avoid further misunderstandings and Modi's visit to Saudi can be helpful in that way too.
Stronger and strategic relationships with Saudi Arabia is essential in every aspects from Oil trades, investments, IT to that of curbing the IS threats and other ill-wills which India had to face in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia can do the role of a mediator or further act as an 'angel' at times, say no wonder it is just helpful if we could keep a positive vibe with a nation which has got a commanding voice on the 'Sunnis' which will be crucial in the coming years.

In the case of U.A.E, again it is a point to think why did we not make a visit to a nation which constitutes a working Indian population just more than that of the whole Parsi community in India, since 34 years!? Great that at least certain things are better to be done  late, than never! However, from a critic's point of view, U.A.E. could just remain as little more to the concept of 'El-Dorado' if no plausible steps as for them do rise from the Indian Govt. in the form of the proposed GST bill, which should be made into action as soon as possible.

Let us hope that things are going fine overseas and now we should do well within Parliaments on that part so as to take it further. This is a subject to be considered and discussed apolitically. 
The boosting up of Modi's visit to the middle east in the name of a Hindu Temple, is merely out of fact since much things are happening within the International visit which are to be hyped more. It is time to start thinking above political egos so as to bring about prominent changes within the lives of NRIs and take the Indian economy to the next level.

PREMAM- An ALPHONSE PUTHREN MAGIC

Watched Premam. I got to it a little late just because I failed to get tickets at the time of its release and then I got a little busy too. Yet, I didn't want to miss an Alphonse Puthren movie at theaters and I do have a regret for that since NERAM, his debut. 
PREMAM is not something with a scripted-suspense-filled-thrilling story. It is all about NATURAL VISUAL MAGIC plus 'that' particular feeling where the director proved his legacy. This man has really got some magical powers with him and certainly- a promising director from the current world cinema. great cast and crew.
Songs were really beautiful except certain BGM notes which sounded loose at some points.
One of the stuffs which attracted me the most was the beautiful rendering of a BUTTERFLY element which almost took me to a trans! (being poetic:-) )
Alphonse Puthren = Exceptional like emoticon

Support LGBT Rights.

Support LGBT rights.
Hats off to the US Govt.. This is truly an admirable step. Think ahead. Stay ahead. 
You see someone out there and let the fellow be- a Male/ Female /Lesbian / Gay/ Bisexual/ Transgender or whatever maybe; please be ready to accept it as it goes by. Now let us not become Devils in the form of GODs anymore. smile emoticon
As somebody said, can we speak for LGBT RIGHTS, staying within a system that often fails to curb KHAAP PANCHAYATS / honor killings!?? It is time to get cleansed. Better late, than never! Hoping for more and more ACHHE DINs... smile emoticon like emoticon.

The 'QUEEN' Charisma ! (A Great Contribution)

Queen The Film - Heavily recommended for every adult Indian girl (//prior to marriage wink emoticon ).
That is all what I have to say now. The rest has been told well by‪#‎Vikas_Bahl‬‪#‎Anurag_Kashyap‬‪#‎Vikramaditya_Motwane‬ and‪#‎Kangana_Ranaut‬.
I don't want to rate it. I am just posting this particular screenshot and I think this really holds the complete theme of this movie in a translucent way. Kangana Ranaut deserves a national award for this sole expression. Thumbs up. Rather, it is a conceptual movie from a talented director.

Banning is not a solution...

Banning the BBC Video is apparently like supporting the rapists. Let people watch it. Apply some sort of reverse logic. It may throw some light on the psychological aspects of the issues indeed. It brings out a daring fact that such diabolic thoughts still prevails within the minds of culprits. The terror fact is that, the mindset of the culprit has not changed and he is not aware of his mistake even after being jailed or punished. The minds aren't subject to change yet! Banning something just because it is obscure, but not obscene, shouldn't be the policy of a matured democratic nation like India.
Kill the culprits inch by inch and slap the devils' advocates but not the channel which brought them out.
Friends, please grow up and open up.

APPRECIABLE UNION BUDGET FY16- Apparently, a rose with less thorns.

Hopefully, I would like to say that a lot of scope for optimism exists in the UNION BUDGET FY16. Unlike the cliche' offers, the current budget seems to be less superficial and more pragmatic! 

Targeting a fiscal deficit of 3.9% and FM still claims that it can be brought to 3% in the coming years, sounds both interesting as well as Utopian at the same time! Service tax is to be increased to 14% and corporate tax reduced to 25% say, for the next 4 yrs or so are to be welcomed wholeheartedly. I would like to say that this should be considered as a step to reveal the responsibility of a tax payer, positively. This helps to make up the scores of GST. 
This Budget has brought out certain bold steps like avoiding wealth tax, by increasing  the surcharge by 2% on the other side, is an appreciable decision. Govt. also plans to take strict actions against violations of any sort. Technically, this helps to bring back  a lot of hidden wealth. Decision to Manufacture Indian gold coins are appreciable since it could convert a lot of stocked unproductive gold assets to productive funds. 
A well crafted SARFAESI could bring further positive impacts on NBFCS, eventually which could boost them up by avoiding a lot of red tapism indirectly. I think this could even impart confidence on RBI, thereby lubricating its fulcrum. This is really significant since SICA and BIFR were proved to be failures in the timely executions of bankruptcy. Also, I think eventually, we can hope that strategic disinvestment could happen in a better way now!I would like to say that MUDRA, is yet another positive step taken by the Govt. to promote entrepreneurship especially among SC/ST and other MSMEs indeed.
Visa on arrival has been extended to 150 countries, is yet another good step from the Govt. 
Obviously, the deferring of GAAR for the next couple of years attracts foreign investments for sure which takes up the idea of  'MAKE IN INDIA',  but we should also consider the fact that the percentage of SKILLED LABOR in India is too low as when compared to that of Japan and other nations. Here comes the questions regarding the Govt.'s plan to upgrade education systems and employments that sounds brittle in many aspects. Another positive aspect which I do find is that agro-based industries are given certain credit facilities. 
Also, certain plans are being mentioned for the enhancement of irrigation and farm areas. Women and aged people are given a mighty importance in this budget. I should say that it is a remarkable revolutionary idea coming true, if every Indian could get an insurance coverage for just Rs. 12...! Applause for that! 
Tax exemption for Swachh Bharat and other 'Modi' plans of course, are acceptable indeed, with positive intentions. However, thorough checks are to be made on further fund allocations and its utilization. Politically, the budget seems to satisfy AAP logics also. Special plans for Bihar and WB are appreciable, though it could be viewed through red eyes in cognizant with the legislative elections to be held next year.
Overall, I felt this as an apolitical budget, unlike the ones we had been watching through years!
However tax exemption has been granted for YOGA and similar things, On behalf of this, I would like to point out certain subtle individual beneficiaries who try to sell out spirituality out there in the market.On the contrary, as a wholesome, the Union Budget FY16 is an optimistic one, which allows an 'ease' to do business in India, based on a lot of positive issues. It imparts a lot of hope on the common man, and I should say that this would be the best budget, present India can ever have, if implemented properly. Now, let us put our hopes on the ones who implement these.

Ah! Valentine's Day, who cares! I am not sure how many of us know about Saint Valentine and his deeds.
