mr. tharoor got KANE-d

two days back, the honorable premier of india accepted the resignation from mr. shashi tharoor, the mp from trivandrum kerala, as minister of state, who also happens to be a decorated diplomat in his early career..sure the decorations mr. tharoor has got is no match to the ones that are possessed by the man to whom he submitted his resignation..
being a keen follower of news and also one who attended sunday school for 10 long years, i couldnt help myself from thinking about similarities between what happened with mr tharoor and an old story i read in my catechism class as a kid..the story of adam's sons..kane and abel, in genesis and not the book 'kane and abel' by jeffrey archer..
"necessity the father of all great inventions", the quote that celebrates mankind, i feel like rephrasing it to "envy, the mother of all great down falls"
what exactly did happen to this flamboyant, charismatic, young, dynamic diplomat turned politician?? he used his influence or rather pulled the strings to get an ipl franchisee for kochi..acted as a mentor for the consortium..helped in compiling individuals with financial capacity to bid for the franchisee..he succeeded in his mission..kochi ipl franchisee was born..
i doubt whether this one year old baby minister in indian politics have the connections to make an undue influence with the whole bidding process and shape it the way he desires?? now we have witnessed our own special king makers from amar singh to lallu prasad yadav, these are people with hard core experience of knowing how to do and get things done in india..if one was speaking about old veterans of indian politics like them it would have made more sense..
his plans of marrying sunidha pushkar is another aspect which got him the high light..for chrisake, that is his personal life..he aint caught up doing adultery, nor is he caught up trying to marry a second time while his marriage is not dissolved..he divorced his second wife and is getting married for a third time..lets do a quick recheck about the history of our political leaders, we find loads of them having two wives at the same time and some has three and more..starting with the king from south, dr karunanidhi..no one says anything about that..his children from the first and second and third wife all has got ministerial posts or else some major post in the party..no one has ever bothered to say, hey dr karunadhini has got two wives at the same time..wouldn't that amount to anything?? in india it does not..know the reason why??because dr karunanidhi became big with years of experience and he definitely knows or atleast some loyalist of his knows to stitch those mouths shut..
i feel tharoor should have learnt the art of politics in india before indulging in it..14 months back he was a diplomat and 2 months later he was sworn in as a minister of state of the biggest democracy around..it surely must have upset a lot of people, both within the party and outside it..remember, we have politicians like lk advani, who ventured into politics before independence and i always believed his dream in life was to enjoy the chair dr.manmohan singh is sitting on now..he failed, couldn't make it and i don't think he has any chance of making it even if the bjp wins the next elections..that is how things happen in india..one has to grow gradually from ranks..only then the voices against you would be less..if not your growth leaves a thousand others envious and they will do everything to pull you down..
in mr tharoor's story, i am not sure, whether the role of kane was played my mr modi alone or a consortium of individuals and politicians who couldn't digest the fact that, the small city of kochin outbid every one else except one and bagged the ipl franchisee rights and the rise of influence of a baby minister of dr. singh's cabinet..whatever the reasons be mr tharoor i hope did learn his lessons the hard way...

dynamics-the funda of life

my first blogs were filled with incidents from my personal life..dynamics is the formula of life, some super stud said it long time back..i have no reason to prove him wrong..looking back on my life, i know i have changed..my dreams have changed, the priorities in my life have changed...my habits, my mannerisms to the size of my shoes have changed..the innocent young boy of childhood doesn't exist any longer, nor does the careless teen..guess along with the increase in my shoe size loads of things about me changed which aint worth mentioning..started these lines as a warning to all, who ends up reading my blog coz of sheer boredom, not to click the links to my earlier posts..it will bore u further..affirmative about that..
what exactly is the purpose behind my blog?? i dunno..do i want to express myself and care to do it?? no, i really don't care..is it an attempt to leave my marks some place on the public domain??like u type in my name in the google search bar and make a hit, "the growls of a street mongrel" comes on the list..guess that will be the closest reason i could probably say..

Mongrel is Back & Barking

life has been so very kind to me!!!
words filled with sarcasm?? i don think so..i feel happy to be alive..d span i had given myself on earth, "a quarter of a century" got over 6 months back n each day an extra bonus for me..thanking heavens for all d blessings i have got n all d blessings that been caught in traffic enroute from heaven to india..

when young (it definitely doesn't mean i am old and speaking looking back into my glorious 50 odd years on earth), say like 10 or 12, you are filled with dreams..you feel you could outplay sachin and make a fortune larger than mr gates..with time the spectrum of your dreams gets narrow, you tend to understand the ground realities, sachin is one in a million and so is mr gates empire and far from being them or being better than them, all you want to be is make an impact..be yourself and leave behind a legacy,how muchever small it is..then there always is this problem of not knowing what exactly your dream is..that is the saddest situation of all..

want to make a decent living, wear labelled apparels, sport expensive accessories, travel in style, own your own crash pad you could call home, have someone to go back to at your crash pad, have a group of friends who looks upto you........dreams dreams dreams...these are all the average dream everyone shares...but there are some bigger dreams..aint there??
there definitely must be..because when i sit back and think, if there were no bigger dreams man kind wouldn't have been where it is now..i wouldn't have been blogging..i would rather be on the hunt for some animal to satisfy my hunger..the whole human empire is built on dreams and mankind will cease to exist when men forget the art of dreaming...
