Ice Melts as it comes towards high temperatures. Similarly, we can picturise our political system as a reducing power. That is not only for India but for all the nations in the world.
The Artic Region is melting because of the increasing heat around it. Strong pillars of ice collapse day by day and give our earth a rising temperature. Similarly, the Indian political pillars are collapsing day by day which is spreading a concern to its public.
If we picturise the past, strong pillars like Dr. Ambedkar, Mahatma Phule, Gandhi, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel were great political leaders and the most important thing was their ethics which became strong pillars of India, one which had lead the freedom struggle and the other who made it stronger than ever.
But today these pillars no longer retain the same strength as before because the values and ethics of the people itself are lost. Paying bribes, black marketing, earning black money, illegal construction and buying of unbilled items have become a common adjustment in people’s lives and they do not know the consequences which may come across in future. Moreover, politicians, police, and government bodies have themselves become a black collar painted with white paint.
No more is the law strict, no more are people conscious and no more have Indians remained Indian with heart. But are forcefully made to hear the national anthem (while some do stand themselves). People still have respect for Mother India but have lost hope in its leaders, its system. People love their constitution but not the ways it is utilized.
If there is no leader how will a country lead itself? From growing crimes to filthy politics is what we hear in the news. If it’s true then the strong pillars will soon collapse in the ocean and it can only be stopped if we stop heating our minds towards wrongs political thoughts.
It is the public which gained freedom. It is the public which can retain it. The public makes a country and the public which decides right and wrong in the country and it is the public which ruins it.
There were boils all over my face. Then I realized that those weren’t small boils but were big fat pimples. Will I have a face full of holes like many people have? A face full of holes like the potholes on road? No, I can’t let that happen! I need to do something!
I was so worried of the pimples on my face that I had almost tried every cosmetic available at the medical store. Then, I went to the doctor and he gave me an ointment that took days for those pimples to go off and then finally leave a dark spot on my face. I was tired of all the experiments that people and those television advertisements gave me. All of it took weeks to start showing visible results. And then finally one day a pimple on my nose burst to leave a big deep hole. Now, this was the time I got terrified I and couldn’t stop thinking about it for days.
Then, one fine day my mother got some neem leaves and told me to take bath with neem immersed in the warm bathing water. I did the same but the result still wasn’t satisfactory. So, I tried an experiment. I brought a lot of neem leaves and ground it and made a paste, applied it on my cheeks and affected areas and left it to dry. I washed it off before going to bed and the itching had totally gone off, but the pimples very still there.
Neem: The Ultimate Herb
Next Day, when I woke up. I felt my face nice and soft and then I went to the bathroom in front if the mirror. There were hardly any pimples left and in about two to three days the traces of pimples had also gone off.
Now, I realized the power of neem and I thought of doing more with it. I referred some posts on the internet and some books and I found the many uses of neem in my day to day life. Let me share some of the things I use neem for and how I use it.
Pimples, Boils, and Skin Irritations – Make a paste of neem leaves and apply on the affected area. Keep it for one hour and wash it off.
Blood Purifying – This requires consumption of neem but not in concentrated form. Take one neem leaf and place it in an empty cup. Now pour boiling hot water. Leave it for a minute or two. Now, the Neem Tea is ready and you can consume it either warm or hot.
Oral Cleansing – Take twigs of the neem tree and chew it from its end. Once you chew it for some time the twigs end will become soft and form like bristles. You can use this bristle to brush your teeth. Note that, when you chew the twig neem juice is released and it kills all the germs and freshens your mouth. People did this in ancient times. I do this on Sundays.
मोठेपण हे आकाशात व पाताळात नवे,
ते भलेपण खरे.
खरे मोठेपण हे मोठेपणाच नवे,

अतिथि का नाम,
संकट को सलाम,
सलामी मेरी झूठी,
क्या यही करू मे काम?
आए दिन वक़्त नही मिलता,
खाने का ना कोई नाम,
कैसे करू मे फुलो से सलाम,
जब टुकड़े टुकड़े है मेरे प्राण?
जाना है कही इधर उधर,
तब दखल देते अतिथि इधर इधर!
नाम नही लेते जाने का,
और खा जाते है मेरे प्राण.
The above poetry in Hindi was written by me on 8 January 2005.
We all say with pride that India is united and will always be united. I agree with that, but partially. As Indians, we know how united we are. Practically, we see a Hindu hating a Muslim, a Muslim hating Hindu’s, Marathi’s hating Bihari’s and states divided over water.
Are we really united? Ask yourself?
In Mumbai, years ago there was nothing like Hindu, Muslim and Bihari’s but we were all Mumbaikar’s. But see the state now. And this is just because we are following the foot steps of wrong leaders who follow the strategy of divide and rule.
When we walk along the street with our friends some of us would say “Yeh dekh Katve ko!” and “Sale in Bihari ne toh Mumbai ko ganda kar diya hai.” But the reality is that Continue reading “State of India..Today!”

As I passed the gate with my parents for my admission in the college hostel, helping hands had come forward to tell me that they were with me, to support me. I took admission to room number 18 with a third year and with one of my own batch.
At first I was delighted at the truth that I was in one of the best hotel management colleges in the country. But soon I realized that with every good that happens some bad keeps following it.
