 This is my first guest post. It's a post by my friend shubho dey i knew him from my tuition, he is also a blogger and has a blog  named shubho's blog.
He asked me few day's back if he could do a guest post on my blog I would request you all to read and do leave a comment for the boy... so here over to shubho....

Hello everyone and a very happy Durga Puja to all. This is my first guest blog on Anki’s blog.  I am going to share an experience that has touched me deeply. Durga Puja is one of the most awaited festivals of India. On the eve of Asthami (8th day of the festival)
I was out with my friends and celebrating. We were enjoying, laughing and racing on our bikes; breaking as many traffic rules as possible.
 We stopped next to a food stall for some snacks. We were having the time of our lives and everything looked just perfect.  Until my eyes fell upon a small kid. He was very cute and must have been 5-6yrs old. He was helping his father at the stall. His job was to wash the plates and serve the customers. There was a sad look on that boy’s face which nobody happened to notice in that crowd.
I tried to look away but then but things became worse. I looked on the road and saw many children walking with their families. Few of them looked at the stalls but their parents could not afford such luxuries for them. Many were not properly dressed. They looked tired and exhausted yet amazed by the glitz and glamor in of the decorations throughout the city.
I turned back at the kid. I felt sorry for him. Thoughts were racing through my mind. Maybe he doesn’t even realize that he is missing his childhood. Maybe he is okay with his poor situation. Maybe he is so poor that he doesn’t even know what luxuries are. Or maybe his innocent mind has yet not learned to differentiate between rich and poor.
Or maybe he knows everything but is helpless and silently accepted his fate.
I couldn’t do anything for that boy. So am I helpless or have I become selfish. Or have we accepted that not everybody could be taken care of.
Everybody is supposed to enjoy during the festivals.
Then why are these kids not doing what I used to do at his age?
 Why aren’t they roaming about with a careless smile on their face?
 Where’s their ice cream?
Why didn’t they wear new clothes?
 Why are they walking miles instead of sitting inside their car?
 Why doesn’t somebody do something about it??
I am still trying to figure out the answers. It’s easy to forget these questions but not so easy to forget those eyes.

water : a privilege

on the eve of the world blog action day 2010..  here's my post on water..!!

WATER (H2O)  .. well i would be exaggerating if i start on with the importance of water in our lives...!!!
but we all are a part of the intricate balance of our nature /environment...and yes it,s our need to save water. here are some ways which we could do at our home to save water on an individual level
1. don't leave the tap on while brushing
2. try taking a shower rather than bath.. takes less time...
3. save the water that you have used to wash vegetables and put it in your plants
4. washing machine takes less water 4 washing..!!
5 if u have some water left in your glass after drinking then put it in a plant rather than put it in sink
6. if your house,society can have rain water harvester ... that will be awesome
 all these are some of the things  that we can all do on an individual level to save water..!!
till the n stay healthy and happy.........

After my award, *applause*….. (Coming down)……!!!!

I took a long *flashback* through my blog posts and thought
, “man it seems to be written by some self opinionated 30 something teacher”

And that is… aha not happening ….!!!!
 I have kept my blog theme to be life of a student and written only a Lil piece about my life……

So now it’s time readers to get up close and ACADEMIC with Akanksha Singh Gaur. (Yes that‘s my full name but now my we do not use Gaur, it just came out as my enthusiasm!!!)

 I would be doing a series of blog posts somewhat like a mini biography or diary to let every one know about me… hopefully you will enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing and also living it!!!!!


Akanksha Singh fell from heaven straight into the nurse’s lap (technically,) first  and vis-à-vis to her parents .This was the first and the last child my parents had ,after  experiencing “Akanksha Singh” they were not in the position to have the repeat telecast. The world would have been a better place if there had been more like me…. Never mind!!!

DATED:  APRIL 1993 A.D        TIME: MORNING***     DAY:???                             PLACE: JAMMU                 AGE: 2 YEARS AND 9 MONTHS   
 Supposed to be my first day at school but I don’t have memory of this day!!!! My mother taught in the same school… so she became “MAM/ MISS” in campus and “MOM” off-campus

NOW …..Cut to:
DATED: AROUND 1994 AD           TIME:??:??          DAY:????      
PLACE: JAMMU (phew!!! I knew this)     AGE: 3             CLASS: JUST PROMOTED TO LKG

Disclaimer; I don’t have memories of these incidents. These were narrated to me by my parents. These are a series of true events.

My first nick name was “gulu” ,( DON’T LAUGH) and suddenly there had come a new tailor ji named *gulu*( YEAH OK LAUGH!!!)   in our colony,…………..
 My mum‘s immediate ninja move: nick name changed to Anki
Which also happens to be the nick name of my 4th cousin brother, 
( named ankur), but that doesn’t bug my parents as he is my brother, when we are both together in the same room we are referred as male/female ankiz , **bugzzz me**

 so ahemm  coming back to the D-DAY , my papa had noticed that I had maintained a strange kind of an attraction toward our old soon-to-be-disowned black and white tv , I would (figuratively, of course) go inside the TV set to watch my favorite sitcom, then Hum Paanch. So he guessed may be I should see an ophthalmologist (eye doctor). The doctor one of the best in our city hid a great laugh seeing a 3yr old patient. He handed me over to a junior/intern/still a student/ probably first case/ person and started chatting with my father..  Then he or was it she?? Never mind, checked my eye sight “minus 5” was the answer!!!
 So this junior/intern/still a student/ probably first case/ person were shocked he hadn’t seen this in his entire medical career.. Really he might not have!!!
This junior/intern/still a student/ probably first case person goes to his senior to come and recheck now… that nearly senior/a little more experienced than the junior/intern/still a student/ probably first case/ person comes with the same answer minus 5. So in this way they all go to their respective seniors, when finally the case comes to the doctor who had laughed.. And BINGO he also got the same answer.

Conclusion: I started wearing specs/glasses!!!

*   Mom and dad .. : shattered.

Papa took a 2 day holiday from office made an ayurvedic medicine, the recipe given by some vaidya ji (ayurvedic doctor) which tasted like sand but had reduced my power from minus 5 to minus 2 in a span of 4 years but I couldn’t continue it…. It tasted horrible!!!

*   Others : shocked

*   My classmates: what is that on your face????
                                  : “my granny wears these” LOL

*   The notorious kid in my class: “see mum she tops in our class and she wears glasses, if I top I’ll also have to wear glasses, like her!!!”


 DATED: 1996                   TIME, DAY-????? CHUCK IT!!
   PLACE: JAMMU              AGE: 4

My first appearance on stage:………………………………..DISASTER!!

I was asked to recite a poem.. And I forgot the poem……………………

Same year…

Me: (sadly) L:  my eldest tau ji expired!( though  I had never met him)

Friend (aged 3 and confused):  what’s tau ji??(She was Kashmiri, never knew Hindi words)

Me: my dad’s elder brother, he expired!!

Friend: expired????!!!! Wow that’s nice!!

Me (glaring): he died, stupid!!!

Friend: ohh I am very sorry….!!!

DATED: 1996 AD                AGE: 5


Middle of the year…

I came to school with plastic rose flower to give it to my class teacher (to impress her, I was a teacher’s pet.)  

… But she was not there .. Instead it was my mum.. She was my new teacher ,so I gave the flower to her, but at the end of day I took it back from her telling her that it was for my former teacher.. !!!

Same year….

My friends broke up with me because I had brought eggs in my Tiffin to school and  they were pure veggies.. So to them  I became an animal-eating,  most insensitive human being on the face of earth… I cried and went up to my mom/teacher as daughter/student she somehow made the others to make up with me……

*merits of having mum as your teacher*
*All my mom students had known that, I was her daughter so they would
Come to me and pamper me in order to be in good books of my mum…..

 *I always got my mother’s share of chocolates too whenever there was a b’day of any student in school

DATED: APRIL 1997 A.D           AGE: 5 GOING ON 6 

Bye bye- Jammu…. Adieu… I miss you….. Till today ………….

It’s been long since blogging. As I posted earlier my mom had been unwell, and yes I was very tensed these last few weeks….the situation at home is pretty ok now thanks to all your wishes.

These few weeks me and my dad are attending college and office respectively on alternative days, since we can’t leave my mother home alone. Thus either of us had to stay home. I don’t mind missing college but we have a lot of attendance issues in our college so I have to go.  Today I came back early.. our classes had been suspended because of the death of the formal principle of our college (may she rest in peace) as I came back early I could stay and my father could  run to his work . Mother was asleep in the afternoon.. so I switched on the television.. it had been a really long time since I had watched television in afternoon … as of my college and tuition.

I sat and watched a rerun of “Koffee With Karan”, it’s basically a chat show.. in which karan (a hot shot Indian film director) calls celbs for a coffee and has a     te`te` - a - te`te` with them.. this episode’s guest was Richard Gere.
Umm.. so he was not here to talk about his movies or bollywood for a matter of fact bit his main focus was on the socio-economic demography of India and of his causes such as fighting against AIDS etc. in india

He pointed one really strong point…
“ Indians are not some one who speaks their mind.. they are scared, for whatever reasons”…

 He so, nailed it.. right on bull’s eye! We all say it’s our culture .. that we are not supposed to question our elders and blah blah blah stuff bull shit ….. actually we Indians lack the skill of expression infact Today’s generation is considered manner less.. as most of them speak back to their elders .
 I remember, when I was in school I had certain friends who made regular trips to the principle’s office for the wrong reasons.. sometimes they were called even if it was not their fault and brutally scolded just for the fact that she(my principle) thought that they were trying to cause trouble. They had gaven me  “gyan”(lesson) that if I ever come around such situation (which I did a few times) “never speak back”  even if you are not guilty, if you try explaining or spoke back things can get worse  like suspension and parents being unnecessarily called and harassed . I was sometimes called for silly thing too but I followed their teachings and yes I was saved.
The same situation prevails  in my college too.. but then I was a kid and now I am an adult, I don’t like to be called and scolded for silly things such as not wearing my ID  card etc. but I can’t say or do anything just listen say sorry and leave silently pretending I am sorry when I don’t really care…the circumstances make me hypocrite and which is not who I am..!!

We are not allowed to speak anything against the rules or authority and that applies to almost all of India.. My father’s take on this, “what can you expect from a country which has been almost enslaved for 200 years by Britishers and before that by Arabs and tughulaqs.”

India’s expression is still regaining though at a very slow rate. The divorce rates have risen in India as women are now retaliating against domestic and any such injustice done against them. Gay people are asking for their rights... even some males are coming forward with their complaint against molestation done to them... by females at higher authority…
Even Da vinci actually never said anything but his work and art said it all, that was one clever way of expression though he did got into trouble… but we all can’t  and are not like him…even he never really achieved so to say anything much, in his life time  for his genius work, he was somebody who thought ahead of his time and thus unaccepted.
Even Mira bai, the  female saint who fell in love with lord Krishna, was one of a hell society rule breaker. It’s said that lord Krishna had appeared to her or in real words gave her darshan ie, met her . she really went through a lot only for the love of lord..
Gandhi ji went to jail for creating salt(the famous dandi march) . 
But we are simple, average human beings not Gandhi, Mira bai or vinci for that matter.

The most difficult but the most guaranteed path for success is “being yourself in the world” as easy as it sounds it’s much more difficult esp. for those who are different. I think we all are different in some way or other but it’s just that some of us express our self some just stay back. A proper communication is essentially important for the success in any work...

The emphasis on this issue is becoming a more important case to be thought... but till then I and many other people like me will have to remain hypocrites.

Disqualified married women!

I am a student of financial accountancy (hons) , I have just been promoted to part II(a very recent development)  of the degree course. In part II, we have business law as a major paper.

Business law is, of course, laws related to business. We are studying the “Indian contract act” nowadays.
According to section 2 (h) of the Indian contract act”an agreement enforceable by law is a contract”. Any person can enter into a contract, only if they are of majority age, or of a sound mind.. There are certain people who are disqualified in entering into a contract according to our Indian act-
Alien enemies, foreign bureaucrats, insolvent, convicts……and…….


Our teacher always gives us a little briefing, before starting the chapter.. The moment she announced, that married women are disqualified from entering into a contract.. All the 200 pair of eyes was on our teacher at that moment.
I am studying in a girl’s college, it’s a Christian college (Carmel institution) , a very reputed institution of our state. A female dominant college (we have very few male teachers) so in a class of about 232 female students and plus 1 female teacher… it comes into light that the law of our country disqualifies a married female to enter into a contract

We all shouted in chorus, “MA’AM…..!!!!?????????????”

She made the whole class quiet, and explained that a married daughter is disqualified to enter into a contract of her father’s business, and she cannot even enter into a contract of her husband’s property. The class bell rang which was a cue for her to leave, but she said she will explain it in the coming classes.

She left all of us in chaos.  one of my friend has a family business, and she considered it to be totally fake law as she said that her father has made her the partner in the company (on papers) and she can enter into a contract if she wants,  my other class mates laughed at the hypocrisy of this law, and Me?
  My father do not have any business but he has property, I am an only child , I was really wondering.. if I will get it or not!!!?/

The next day our teacher came and explained to us the law, so here it is..

A married daughter cannot enter into a contract of her father’s business or property, except it’s on her name. This law does not apply to married son, as according to the Hindu law in the absence of a will, the property is to be divided amongst the son equally, it’s a default process, daughter’s get a share only if it is mentioned in the will and in the absence of will, the property goes to the son(s). In Muslim law 1/3rd property goes to the female child (please correct me if I am wrong)

 A wife cannot enter into a contract of her husband’s business or property except if she holds a share of it (legally). But similarly, husband cannot also enter into a contract of her wife’s business unless he has a share in the business.

So finally our confusion was sorted out.  Though I am not affected by this law, as I am an only child so all will be mine ( YIPPEEEE!!!!)  

It’s fair on the husband-wife part, but what about the daughter part.  
there are certain laws especially in our hindu society which discriminates against women
For eg  a daughter cannot give fire to the corpse of their parents(as in Hinduism the corpse are burned and not cremated) it’s a son duty…!!!
There are some major laws in all religions only for women (no such rules for the male fraternity) 

 In our daily language (English) if we have to refer to any person like say an auditor , lawyer or engineer we use the pronoun “HE” instead of “they”
                 Once we had a debate in our school and in the practice session one kid said in it’s speech ” man is a social animal”
my teacher asked then and there,” if man is a social animal then what are women..?”
every one had a great laugh on this!

So please let me know.. my worthy readers(though you are few, but you rock my blog with your thought-provoking comments) your take on this post! over to you all!

i am a girl.. i hate shopping and make-up!!!!!!!.

I am a girl and i hate shopping. yes! there i admitted it.....

I have had a co-ed schooling. but now i am in a girl's college ..(why?? that's an another long story, which i will explain in my up-coming  posts) i am in 2nd year degree course. When i was in school and i found my friends  talking about about nail polish and makeup i would run away...(sometimes screaming) oh! how i keep myself intact now, has become one of my major skills...

Normally girls like to do shopping,make-up etc, as in its fun to them.. but for me its a head ache... i am miserable in shopping.. i can never make up my mind about what i should buy... esp clothes..which will fit? which will suite me better?.. i need an patient assistance... that's why i hardly go on shopping with my friends..(they are secretly scared in going shopping with ME, as if i am some monster..) to be honest my favorite dress is my night dress,,, when i am at home, i usually wear my night dress in day time oh yes! i am admitting it on my blog today......

this can never be me....>>

i am not like those chick-pick kinda girl whom any one can imagine in a branded outfit with pink,white,black shopping bags.. shopping for me is like a necessity and also something that i would really like others to do for me... but even if they do,  i discard their choices and have to ultimately get up to do my deed..

.I like simple, comfortable, and smart clothes that's the way i am.. and that is what i want to reflect to the world..

and makeup... hahahah...i only know.." lakme is an Indian company which is giving a hard competition to Revlon  which happened due to strict economic policies before 1991"... my info. ends here.

i could not connect to my friends in college sometimes i feel bored.. i know some would also think that i am boring.. but i have improved.. or adjusting ti all this.. i try liking it.. but.....

 i wanna share this...i have this fantasy of having a fast bike,... (for this only i wanted an elder brother)
MY BIKE...and that too.. harley-davidson and i am the one riding it....( pray this fantasy.. will come true.. in the near future amen!!)

maybe i 'd like to have a bike like this.........

i am struggling to be myself.. in my college,but still being diplomatic in what i do..( diplomacy-my very newly acquired obligation) hmm... but i'll survive and be a better person.. after i graduate...AMEN  !!!!!

i would also like to take this moment in thanking all of you who read my blog... this gives me a lot of encouragement and i feel more confident(which i was losing these times) special thanks to gaelika, one the most wonderful people i know,she had helped me in making new friends here....thankyou

Hindi hai hum (hindi is our mother tongue) …….. IS ITreally..??? Origin of ‘HINGLISH’ or as I say.. HINDIFICATION OF ENGLISH WORDS…!!

 After our independence, HINDI was declared to be the national language of our country. But this happened only in the paper, what came out in practice was much different.

Few days back I was copying hindi notes from one of my classmate, shalini, now shalini hails from a Hindi-medium school which means that she studied all the subjects at school level in Hindi…. Unlike me!!  I really presumed that she will be very good in Hindi.. But…. I was astounded to read her notes.. There were so many mistakes in spelling and basic grammar, she comes from a Hindi medium school (for god’s sake) and she is making such basic mistakes…. I did correct some and then I did point out to her some ,she was a bit embarrassed(any one will be.. including me if I was her) and then excused herself that ma’am was very fast while dictating.

                                  I have an ICSE schooling..ie English medium, hindi was taught to us as second language , we were made to study Sanskrit  only from class 5th-8th. During my results, my father always saw my Hindi paper first (unlike other parents who would go for maths , in my dad’s list it came 2nd). We come from Hindi speaking states, and my father is himself well-versed in this language.. oh! How my dad used to scold me about my bad handwriting and spelling mistake…(in Hindi language) I was good in Hindi grammar, pronunciation.. But not in spelling. Now in my college, Hindi is just a minor paper(but compulsory) . I was always good in English (relatively, of course) but that never made my dad proud…!!

I am not writing this to emphasize on my bad spellings in hindi…but this is not just my problem.. there are many Indians, irrespective of their educational backgrounds, who are not well versed in Hindi and well not even in English, it is really surprising to know.. that a common person( AAM ADMI,MANGO PEOPLE) do not really have a language .

In India an illiterate ,would also know 3-4 words of English, but there is no guarantee of proper pronunciation (neither in English nor in Hindi).. Infact so many people miss-spell and miss-pronounce even the word  ‘PRONUNCIATION’. we Indians today do not have a language .. Spain has Spanish, France has French and india..??

These are some picz with wrong grammar….

Today Indians have HINGLISH or what I like to call HINDIFICATION OF ENGLISH WORDS(HOEW) for eg. What-what things are important.?? Return back,
 Different-different things happening.. etc  these are the very common blunders which I hear people uttering every now and then...

For the urban kids nowadays.. speaking in English is kool.. while in hindi NAMAkool(worthless).  Today’s generation are not well versed in either of these languages perfectly, there is a new language now…HINGLISH!!!

Is it good bad or ugly..?? please give your opinion….

i am in college now.. and with the teacher's day near the practice and all have started.... this reminded me of my school dayss......

I have spent around 8 years in rose bud school, and the best time of the year for all THE STUDENTZZ used to be the teacher's day...... no actually the preparation of teacher's day.... THE MOST DRAMATIC PERIOD OF THE YEAR... EMOTIONS,FRIENDSHIP,TEARS,DRAMA,DANCE MUSIC,ROMANCE(if u get lucky)FUN,TEAMWORK,CREATIVITY....CAT-FIGHTS.. BREAKING UP, MAKING UP... u name it and it was there......

Actually it was the only activity which the student did without the supervision.. or any knowledge of the teachers,... it was "ASSUMED" to be a surprise god knows if we did surprise them......

Those 5 days had every bit of a a thing which was never ever experienced through-out the year....

The thinking and the planning  already starts from the last year teacher's day...but the actual discussions among the students would happen from the third week of august. there were mostly two kinds of programmes that happened.. each class had to perform..1 DANCE AND 1 SKIT:


1.Dance was usually done by the girls... only a few boys were interested in it..but the girls never took those boys...LOL so if they had a majority, they made their own other group, but many were not as lucky(like the guys in my class)

2.the first BATTLE....song selection.. ..a big DEBATE would take place.. but at the end the majority would win.. and the minority...accepted it!!!.... because they knew the song will be changed at a minimum of 3 times.. it was a rule.... any group sticking to one song throughout the programme is pulling of a miracle.

3. now there is supposed to be one SO-CALLED LEADER.. who would teach every one the DANCE... some times the teachers appointed them... otherwise there were also some self- proclaimed appointments ....Here came the politics.. mostly the popular one got to be the LEADER... uhh.. it was a great honour...!!!!

4.there were always be some kids with TWO LEFT FEET but they were  taken.....why???... "UHH..she's my friend and she is v.emotional" and the ones who are not the friends will be shown the door...

5. The competition...... "oh, i saw the A SECTION kids my goodness.. we have to show themm!!!"

6.if you are lucky to have a pink dress with white polkadots then well and good and if not... beg each and every person you know for it of your own size else leave the show(this is where the crying took place)...thus later we tried to end the rigidity of the dress codes...

7. at last the programme hmm.... all performed.. if its all done properly thenn... yeah its a WIN-WIN else.. the one who forgot the steps.. would be seen with daggers on for the entire school year.......!!!!!!!


1.Almost every one is invited to perform....no gender partiality happened there.. BECAUSE ANYONE was hardly interested in skits..

2.it was not very often..(but it happened in my case) clashes of the skit..2 skits but only one will be performed.... n well mine was performed.!!!!... and the skit has to be a comedy.. no serious issues will be tolerated...!!!!

3.the characters ... the director would have to convince the kids to do the part for which they'll fit... after a lot of persuasion and black-mailing....... every one is ready.....!!

4. changes in the skit ....sometimes the skit will only change

5. costumes and props...are to be arranged... the director has to talk to every single child in the class for this and make sure they brings it...

6.besides the competition one has to also be careful....hmm.. that the others are not copying them..

7.the performance happens...... if all laugh.. at your jokes then nice else be ready to be laughed at for the entire school year

amongst all this preparations the people who didn't participate in anything had the best time... just coming to school no studies watching the DRAMA... have a nice laugh and go home....

i don't know how much did the teachers enjoyed the show.... but we did while putting it up for them.......:)

 in college now...  i am hardly interested in participating.. in any activity...because i don't get the same DRAMA which i got in my school... and that was the real fun..!!!

friends... RESOLVED

all is resolved now..... we'll be having d treat on 4 Th September... when the classes will be dismissed due to teacher's day celebrations.... i am tooo excited about it....will post the fun i had........

I am very pissed of right now.... there are four people in my gang I'D call them PATHAK,JAISWAL n rose, pathak is my bestest friend since since 8th std. both of us met jaiswal and rose in our junior college commerce stream, now we are in graduation . jaiswal and rose are with me in commerce while my best friend pathak is in economics department

Rose had her b'day in may while me in june...as there were holidays and all of us were not present at the same time in the town, we decided that we'll give the treat when the college opens..ie,in july.

now... its august.. n still i and rose are in middle of no where of giving the treat...it's like a liability..both n pathak and jaiswal had treated us on their b'dayz so of course we had to treat them too. the problem is that those three can never be free on one particular day. pathak has a lot of family commitments.. she can't come on Sunday as her dad works out of town and comes only on weekends.. jaiswal also has some family commitments (not as much as pathak's though)and even if we do decide like spontaneously she's so moody that the plan is postponed.. with rose well she doesn't want to miss the classes only because of attendance(we attend college only for attendance) and there are no public holidays coming up on which we can treat .

well whenever me, jaiswal and rose decide a day (as we are in the same class we see each other every day) it becomes implied that I'll tell pathak as i am much closer to her. when i tell her the plan she would cancel it due to family commitments.. or etc... she'll decide a new date and then of course it's my duty to tell the other two..as they are my classmates.. and then they'll reject it.

It's been a whole month like this and the worst part is that pathak complains to me about them and they complain to me about pathak while I have nothing to do about it... i am getting pissed off at all 3 of them and today i have totally withdrawn myself from all of this :)

On second thoughts… I wish I were a minority..

I am a high caste Rajput. And I am really proud about my royal roots. But the system in my country, India, in the present day scenario is such that it makes me wish I were a MINORITY.

 The caste system in India has deep roots from the prime time of the evolution of the civilization. India is one of the oldest civilizations of the world, and the caste system is equally old in its origin. When the Aryans came into our country they had forced the people of the harappan or Indus valley civilization who were residing in the northern part of the country to the south. At that time Pakistan and Afghanistan were also a part of India. The Aryans were nature worshippers, they worshipped sun god, wind god etc

                                It was them who had started the system of caste system. It was basically a division of work and nothing else, since the prodigy took the occupation of their father it became a caste and a part of their identity. The kids did have a choice of occupation but with time things changed.

The public were divided into 4 groups according to the work they did;.

The first were Brahmins or pundits, the learned caste. They had all the knowledge of the Vedas and other religious scriptures. They were given a lot of respect in the society as they were the official teachers of the society, and is every community guru,or the teacher holds the highest post
The second were the Rajput, the warrior class,(I am a rajput). The kings, queens, princess, princesses and soldiers belonged to this caste. They were the rulers and the protectors of the community
The third were vaishya or the business class. It consisted of those people who were indulged in business transactions, commerce etc
The fourth were shudra which were people who did the menial works etc. they were basically the minorities. This caste later came out as UNTOUCHABLES and HARIJANS, (people send by god) by Gandhi ji during the independence movement.

Gradually, which happens in like almost every civilization the stronger started exploited the weaker. Much exploitation took place but I am not going into that detail as I am not here to teach history. So on a more important note I would come to the point that why do I want to be a MINORITY.

After the independence it was felt necessary by the founding fathers of our country that for a balanced development the upliftment of weaker sections is the need of the hour. For a period of 10 years, in the initial stage,( this were subsequently extended for every 10 years through constitutional amendments) a RESERVATION  was provided to these people for  political representation and economical development.

But due to political pressure and vote bank, the reservation is still prevails while it was just to be present for 10 years and now it is more than 50%. Today also, similarly like the old times people are judged by their birth. There are so many people whom I know who are very well financially and they come under a minority caste and they are growing even more which is good. But then there are people who are really in need for development but are not given the opportunity because they are of high birth.

The very famous and top college of commerce of our country SRI RAM COLLEGE OF COMMERCE(SRCC) gives an almost of 10-12% relaxation of marks to the OBC(other backward castes) and SC/ST(schedule caste and schedule tribes). The cut off this college goes up to 97% but this is only for general caste .... but if you are a OBC or SC/ST with 88 % then also one can get admission in this college.

The people with a reservation have brahmastra (which means weapon of god) metaphorically in academics. Today any person who is an OBC or SC/ST then can easily get admission in any top colleges with very average and above average marks.

Our leaders talk about equality but they are not ready to do anything about this matter . Many students were also killed in protest of this quota system/reservation.
26% of the population of our country is still under the poverty line but there is no reservation for them .If the government want to provide reservation then why not for people with weaker economical background.

Unfortunately this is hardly going to happen………..

Ummm… can’t find a conclusion to this!!!!

Which is my home town?

Recently i joined facebook and they asked me about my home town.and i didn't know what to write. a very simple question but i had no answer,let me tell you why?

I am an Indian girl aged 19,studying commerce at a graduate level and i aspire to work in the corporate sector.
i live in Patna,which is the capital of bihar,i was born in jammu,which is the capital of the state jammu and Kashmir. my parents had a love marriage and i am there only child. my mother hails from Punjab, and my father from uttar pradesh. (both two different states)

Now if you are not an Indian you would never know..what a big cultural ,geographical,extremes are these places.let me a give you a little insight into these places geographically and culturally.

PATNA,BIHAR where i am living since 1997, is a plane area,not at all industrially developed,but with good schools,so the people here are very intelligent... even cunning at times, hardworking, and absolute DESI (country people). The kids here crack most of the competitive exams,like engineering,medical, and the toughest of all.. civil services. But bihar does not have a very good political reputation throughout the country. it is still under-developed in comparison to other cites of our country.
Well i like Patna, but most of it is rural... not all ,the place where i live is pretty urban but yeah we don't have malls and all, i have my friends who are nice n well brought up..but the major crowd still needs to groom themselves a lot. But Patna will always be special to me, i spend my whole childhood here, and had the best time of my life till now, here. but i still cannot call it my home-town

JAMMU,J&k i was born there. it is approx.1500km away from Patna. It is in the northern side of the country, it is a hilly area, not exactly a hill station, but yes it is surrounded by hills,the people here have weirdly fair complexion, the major population here consists of Muslims and a local creed called kashmiri pundits(the priest class of this state). Nehru ji also belonged to this state. the local language is dogri and kashmiri, and i don't understand a word of it.Though it is my birth place, but still i cannot buy a property of this state,even if i have lived my entire life there still i cant buy a piece of land in this state legally because there is a special law that a person having some paternal or maternal roots can only buy land in this state and my parents don't have any,and again its politically disturbed area and in dispute with our neighboring country.
I love jammu, the place, the people, but i cannot call it my home town.

PUNJAB it is near j&k its a plain area.it is the agricultural state of my country, the people here are very impulsive,helpful,funny,street-smart, bold and loud. my mum was born in amritsar, though i have rarely been there as my grand-parents are not alive and my mum's brothers and sisters live in different cities, we visit them often. i like Punjab and very proud to have my roots here but well i dunno the language of this place very well (punjabi)and also i am far from being loud though i am impulsive but i take that as a bad attitude,

KANPUR, UP it is my technical home town though i have hardly been here, my dad hails from a village near kanpur.. most of his family is still there but i hardly see them i am not a snob but the village lacks many facilities to which a city child like me cant really live, my dad 's 2 elder brothers(my tayaji, and chacha ji) live in Lucknow and Delhi respectively i have been to lucknow many times, one of the favorite cities i have ever visited, but i am not sure if i can call either of them my home town. I like the culture of U.P it is near bihar, the language here is hindi,so no language barrier atleat, it is my home town paternally , but i know nothing about kanpur.

. I am proud and so lucky to be associated to all these places, i love the food of all these places, alot ,i am a complex blend of all these cultures calling myself bihari or kanpuriya, doesn't do justice to who i am..... i wish there was a way where in 1 word i can explain my home.. i think INDIA..can be it!!!

Oops just tried,but facebook did not accept it.
.but i wish the world does.
