Now This Is Fun-A Way to Protest

I guess everyone has heard about Political Satire coming up every now and then..and if you search the net you are sure to find many such sites.Recently there was a site called just to make some decent satire on Politicians which was fairly constructive as per the owner of the Site…The Site was nothing more than playing with JavaScript if I have to be precise and as the Site Creator stated “In a country with freedom of speech,I assumed that I am allowed to make decent satire on any politician more particularly if it’s constructive. Clearly, I was wrong.”

I guess he is clearly wrong as Freedom of Speech in India is only for those who have the power and I believe that Site Creator is nowhere close to power(Even I am not close to any Power–So Please Don’t poke me ;))..The Site was launched 17th July 2013 and got 60,000 hits in just 20 hours before it was taken down with a note of the Site Owner…Now that is pretty amazing–I guess India is getting  more and more capable in browsing the Net.. 😉

But little did I know that ideas are born not to die but to grow into an Adult and that’s what exactly happened–Two Friends from Mumbai–Web designer Alexander Gounder and Blogger Vidyut Kale got the domain and the site is up again and running so Take a Look at again here is the magic of JavaScript and I guess as far as People are aware of technologies they shouldn’t get irritated by this at all….Now isn’t it is a real Fun way to Protest…I guess it is 🙂

P.S–As I said I am no close to any power,although I am an Indian Citizen please spare me if I have breached the Freedom of Speech Right.

And as always my Interpretation on this…A Cartoon Strip.. 🙂

The Last Seat of The Bus

Last Seat of the Bus

Last Seat of the Bus

It was 2 years back when I was in Mumbai, I had to go there as I one of my relatives was admitted in Bombay Hospital. Now she is all fine, but while coming back from Mumbai to Bangalore the journey of 18 hours was quite hectic and experience lesson of my life and the reason being I was seated in the last seat of the Bus, though it was semi-sleeper Volvo the experience of sitting in the last seat was more like sitting in a age-old city bus.

I had to book my ticket 3 hours before the bus was scheduled to leave from Mumbai and I had to pay the price as there was no other seat left except the last seat of the bus i.e. the right-most last seat with seat no. 48 and I was not interested in more delay as I had to reach Bangalore next morning to attend my Exam though it was a class exam.

When I boarded the Bus I was like I have the last seat and it won’t be much of a problem and it’s just a  matter of 18 hours.So,my journey begun and I left Mumbai City steadily and slowly listening to music and slowly I went to sleep for around 90 minutes and suddenly when I woke I saw that the man seating in-front of me was pushing his seat backwards so that he can lean in a semi-sleeper position and I was like WTF dude can’t you see that I have no space to rest my legs but I was not able or had the right to say like that to him as he had paid for the seat and for that 18 hours he was the owner of that seat and for me The Last Seat was my home for that 18 hours..

I  squeezed myself to my seat with the ac running but of no use and a film starring Saif Ali Khan it could not have got any worse than that and also to my utter dismay I was not even able to move my seat backwards so that I could lean a bit,the effect  of The Last Seat was clearly visible and I was just praying to reach Bangalore in no time.

After some time around 10:30pm the bus stopped for dinner and that half an hour stop was the only happy part in my journey,got down,relaxed,had dinner and smoked  and was mentally getting ready to spent another 12 hours in my home(The Last Seat). After the stop was over,I was back to seat adjusting to seat comfortably so that  can spent the rest 12 hours without much trouble,put on my earphones and started listening to music(thank god I was carrying my Ipod) and was praying to god just to allow me to sleep comfortably till I fell asleep and that what exactly happened as far as I remember(thanks to God for helping me out).

Next Morning when the bus entered the Bangalore rural area,I was getting so uncomfortable that I stood up from my seat and went to the Drivers area and stood there till I got down,it was like for 2 hours or so.Once I got down from the bus,took an auto quickly to my room and vowed never to take The Last of A Bus again in my life.

APJ Abdul Kalam said- “The best brains of the nation may be found on the LAST BENCHES of the classroom” but what about those who are seated in The Last Seat of a Bus as both of them are sitting at the Last Seat..Think About It…

I wrote this post as to preserve my memories,so that at some point of time I can cherish my memories as it taught me a lesson in life..Never to Take The Last Seat of a Bus for long journeys.
