Earthquake in Haiti - The Horrible disaster

The Earth takes the deadliest penalty for its sincere silence from the Easy going humankind. The motherly earth this time showed the World that Earth is the blend of peace and fierceness that lies in its clutches. The year started with the Horrible disaster in the form of Catastrophic Earthquake on the Ritcher Scale of 7.0 Mw. in Haiti, very close to Port-Au-Prince, the capital on 12th January 2010.

It is estimated that the killer catastrophe has took around 5 Lacs lives and the bodies are still buried under the piles of Cement and deadly debris of Concrete. One can choose to see the Television screens all across the news channels, the Deadly dance of horrible death making the life come to an Unprecedented halt for the Several innocent lives in just a wink of the moment.

This is the time that we should pray for those innocent beings who have lost their lives in this mishap. Google has started the Haiti Earthquake Crisis Response wing where you can contribute for the welfare of the sufferers and survivors. We wish all the well being for the families that have lost their loved ones.

God Bless All.

Letter to Banta

Dear Banta Vahe Guru !
I am in a well here and hoping you are in the same well there. I'm writing this letter slowly, because I know you cannot read fast.
We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen 20 miles from home, so we moved 20 miles.
I wont be able to send the address as the last Sardar who stayed here took the house numbers with them for their new house so they would not have to change their address. Hopefully by next week we will be able to bring our earlier address plate here, so that our address will remain same too.
This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine, situated right above the commode. I'm not sure it works. Last week I put in 3 shirts, pulled the chain and haven't seen them since.
The weather here isn't too bad. It rained only twice last week. The first time it rained for 3 days and second time for 4 days.
The coat you wanted me to send you, your Aunt said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with all the metal buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pocket.
Your father has another job. He has 500 men under him. He is cutting the grass at the cemetery.
By the way I took Bahu to our club's poolside. The manager is really badmash. He told her that two-piece swimming suit is not allowed in this club. We were confused as to which piece should we remove?
Your sister had a baby this morning. I haven't found out whether it is a girl or a boy, so I don't know whether you are an Aunt or Uncle.
Your uncle, Jetinder fell in a nearby well. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off bravely and drowned. We cremated him and he burned for three days.
Your best friend, Balwinder, is no more. He died trying to fulfill his father's last wishes. His father had wished to be buried at sea after he died. And your friend died while in the process of digging a grave for his father.
There isn't much more news this time. Nothing much has happened.
P.S: Beta, I was going to send you some money but by the time I realized, I had already sealed off this letter.

The New Year

First of All, I Wish those who read my blog ... and to Those who makes others Read My Blog .. A Very Happy New Year 2010
The year 2009 went into the treasury of the past and left the too many precious and magnifed memories for us. We strived and shivered hard fearing the Global Economy meltdown, which eventually didn't bothered us too much thankfully. But the year, made the Economy come out like a winner from the Darkness of the Late 2008.

But indeed, apart from discussing about the precarious economic situation, which you could have found in any Big Economic newspaper, let me find chance to come to the more meaningful things that took place in the last year.

Well, i celebrated the first anniversary (grr. .. that's not a news though .. every year i have to do that, just the counter will be moving forward!). We just enjoyed the second stint at the Air journey into Goa - A happening place i must say!

Besides that ... the life was a usual machine ... lots of work, parties and Enjoyment!! But sitting here on the outset of the new Year, the mind revolves around the desperations and aspirations that are pre-written before the start of each day .. and appear like a Stamped Postcard. Every day has the meaning, and to justify that .. is the Effort of each day.

I welcome the new year with the Equal Zeal and Enthusiasm. May this new year bring the prosperity for my family and friends.

Say out LOUD !
