I am scared of liars

I am afraid of people who tell lies. Why do they do it when they are sure that the truth is going to come out eventually? Liars always disturb me to the core, especially when I hear all the elucidation that they use to excuse themselves. But a lie is simply a lie, no matter whatever the justifications are.

I won’t say that I am a Miss: Perfect Angel as I too have lied for silly things and have faced the consequences that rose about a ten times higher than my lie. But I have never told lies to hurt or mislead someone.

Do you what to know the reason for the scare? It’s nothing but the bad experiences that I had, the instances where I have been deceived and hurt by the lies that I have heard.

On an average I bump into about 10-15 lies a day, a few silly and a few serious ones.

I have always tried to know a person well, to let my head dominate my heart, before entering in to a friendship. But mistakes have happened many times. Actually it’s very hard to accept that you are getting cheated, that a janitor has entered close to your heart, with a faked identity.

Are we supposed to forgive such people? I really don’t know. But once I lose the trust towards a person that’s the end of everything, whoever it is. But lies and deceits have become the part and parcel of life these days that it is very difficult to know the intention of a person approaching me. Why can’t they be honest?

People always find fault in me saying that I am too much frank and lets the other person know the real me. But I always remain the same and if the real me doesn’t please a person I just walk away as I won’t be able to continue that friendship anymore. But as I said before a few mistakes do have occurred in life where I was mislead by the faked identity of certain people.

But believe me, ultimately you get only what you give others. Try to be honest and get it back in plenty.

It’s a Zoozoo magic

Ads, it always meant images of a group of beautiful women and fine-looking men. Even I thought the same, until I saw the ads of Vodafone and the cute and funny acts of the egg shaped Zoozoos.

About 20-30 exceptional ads, about the various services of the company, Zoozoos have hit the charts in a very short time, creating waves all over the world.

The ad makers have a really fantastic imagination. Incredible creation of alien like creatures, their looks, expressions, laugh, grin, hops, the way the dance…. The antics of the cute Zoozoos are just fantastic!

At first I thought that the characters were animated cartoons, but got to know later, from a forwarded e-mail about the making of Zoozoo’s, that they are human begins with masks.

Awesome idea! Something different from the usual boring ads!

The dead too need privacy

Here is a family fighting for the privacy of their deceased daughter. Internet privacy will take new turns after the battle of this California family and the state legislative system.

The Catsouras family approached the court of law when the photos of their beloved daughter’s fatal car accident started spreading rapidly on the Internet, two years back. Mortally wounded Nikki’s pictures have spread so quickly that the key word Nikki Catsouras shows about a million results, with a number of sites showing the car crash pictures.

What might have been the family’s reaction on seeing the photographs? I can’t even think about it, as the photographs are extremely upsetting.

The case has ignited a debate over the right to privacy for the deceased.

The spreading of Nikki Catsouras’ photographs exposes the darker side of Internet and makes the whole Catsouras family relive the death of their daughter, again and again. By displaying the disturbing and unidentifiable condition of Nikki’s body (she suffered a massive head injury), the whole family is made to repeatedly go through the horrifying experience.

I am not delving in to the details of her accident, or what made such an incident happen. But spreading such photographs on Internet should be banned by the court of law, so as to maintain the privacy of the dead, as well as the living family member s of the deceased.

PS – Praying for Nikki Catsouras. May her soul rest in peace.

I humbly request the readers not to search for Nikki’s car crash photographs.

Some untold cruelties

A mother deserted by her children; most heartbreaking example of the use and throw culture of 21st century.

I was about to get in to our mess hall when I found her walking towards the other side of the hall to reach her room, in the Old Age Home nearby. She had a small hump-like growth on her back that symbolized the pains that she had suffered for the well-being of her family, her kids. And finally, at the age where she needs the love of her kids, she is all alone in the old age home.

Absolutely “useless” for her kids now!

I am single, yet can see clearly through my mind’s eye, the hopes of a mother, right from the moment she knows that she is going to bring another life into this world. Any toil becomes insignificant before her kid’s happiness. With all the hopes and aspirations she raises her kid up, in the hope of seeing her child as the best human being on earth.

But, once her birdie gets wings to fly high, the poor mother is discarded and simply thrown away in to the darkness of an old age home. Just as one throws away a tissue paper after use! How pitiless!

There is yet another group of parents who sadly opt for an old age home after suffering a series of horrible treatment from their children who purposefully forget what have done for them in the past.

I remember a movie ‘Baghban’ which clearly depicted the pangs of the parents on getting dumped by their kids, for whom they had lived the lion’s share of their life. I have always felt that every moment in the movie is true to the core, as you can see many living examples of Raj Malhothra and Pooja (the charecters portrayed by Hemamalini and Amithab Bachan) in our daily life.

The most tear-jerking sight from the old age homes is the visit of these so called ‘proud children’; the happiness of these moms when they see their kids and the heartbreaking sight of seeing tear –filled ears , as their children leave.

These parents spend their days and nights in the reminiscence of the moments that they had spend with their family, in the hope to be with them at least for a day, before death. But their hopes are never fulfilled as the children never bother to turn back to look at their parents.

I always wonder what the situation will be, when these ‘proud children’ grow old. May be they will be dumped to a worst situation than these! Donno!

Fortune Forseen

I met a person last week, who called himself a fortune teller. He wanted to try mine. I asked him if he could tell each and every minute that’s about to come, in detail. Thunderstruck hearing my question, he said that he can give only a general outline, some of which can be wrong too. I broke in to laughter as I couldn’t bear the contrast of his dumbfounded face with the prediction mania that he had a few minutes before.

Foreseeing someone’s fortune! Sounded odd to me (True believers please forgive). I do agree that everyone would be interested to know what’s going to happen in his life, the very next moment. But to predict a person’s future; my very average commonsense doesn’t allow me to swallow it up as such.

If the so called ‘fortune teller’ can predict our future why can’t they predict the disastrous happenings that occur in the world, which kills lakhs of innocent people? Why can’t they apply the same to predict the incidents that’s about to occur in his / her family? They can’t; the reason is simple; they have not risen to the sameness of GOD, the omnipotent power (even though called by different names). Yet they proudly call themselves ‘fortune tellers’!
