To Die or To Die

India - Pakistan have always been two fighting blocks in the world. Wars come and wars go, but always, the two most dis-content countries of the world are India-Pakistan. Well, if either of these want to keep up peace, the other doesn't want. Usually the former would be India, and the latter Pakistan. Pakistan has always eyed at improving their meagre country area.

Well for years, the countries have fought like wrestlers, lots of blood shed all around, national wastage of artillery and man-power, day and night things go haywire. But ultimately what happens? Pakistan capture something and India re-capture.

Then again, the two PMs meet, hold long talks, again waste of time and man-power. These talks lead to a bunch of media-persons wasting their time collecting the words of these men and airing them on radios and TVs. The press print them. People the world over tune into their channels and what they do? Waste their time. Morning, afternoon, evening and even at night people glue themselves to news. Overall the people who ignore this is the youth. But hey!! don't think they dont waste time.

20% of the youth are enrolled with the military, another 20% aspire for this. the rest go about fooling & freaking around.

That's not the worst part. When things start cooling all around, people would like to make news. How? Start over with a fresh new drama all around. They start talking about peace talks. "Lets start an inter-country bus service" says one PM and the other promptly agrees. What happens? The PM of the country who started off the war (usually the PAK PM) would make sure that he is on top in the list of traitors, which is listed out by his own country's militant groups.

Right! Once the bus service is all set for a flag-off, people opt to travel by the bus. This may or may-not be a waste of time. Some people may travel for business sake. Some travel for the heck of it and hey! they do waste their time. Now, what happens is that the militants send out warning messages to these people who intend to travel in the bus saying that the bus can also be called a "COFFIN on WHEELS". People who travel by the bus would also be added to the militants' list of traitors. Fine, people manage to find a solution for the question which now would stare in the eyes: "TO DIE or TO DIE". They would be assured a secure trip. But who needs to do it that way? No stopping here, no stopping there. Once on-board the Bus, the next imagination would be what to do when (and if) he/she goes back home safely. Pray God that things succeed. The Srinagar - Muzaffarabad buses are expected to be flagged off on the 7th April 2005, in a peace pact with Pakistan.

The fastest Indian on road

Ever wonder about the technological advancements that take place day by day? Have you given a thought about why actually automobiles in Europe and America cost so dear? It is a simple answer to it. Indians have the technology, they have the brains. What they dont have is time organization.
But not anymore. The fact is that India has at last ended one more mark, another milestone in the technology era. No! This time it is not any technological innovation, but it is some sort of partnership that makes technology and automobiles meet, 1:1.

Narain Karthikeyan. That is the man i am talking about. By far, he is the best Indian racer who has had everything in the right place with the right time. He had speed and dedication when he needed sponsors, he had sponsors when he needed promotion and he had a huge lot of promotion when he needed hype. And yes! Hype is what he got. The end result? Narain is now in one of the 20 esteemed seats that usually race alternate saturdays, for 6 months in a year for the ultimate crown of motorsports, the Drivers' champion of Formula 1. Narain may not be in a position to score even a single point this season for his meagre Jordan-Midland team who unveiled their this season's car after other teams had almost completed testing for the first 2 races of the season. But still, he's in a great shape to show off that he can "RACE". That is the most important factor if he needs to keep growing. And he knows that the best. Well, As far as we know, he has grown from the depths of this racing well to heights and hey! he still has to keep up his growth until he gains his ultimate crown for which he is here.
He has all the abilities to make 7 time world champion Michael Schumacher look silly!! But for that to be possible, one of the following two conditions should satisfy:
  1. Narain Karthikeyan also drives a Ferrari with equal setup advantage as Michael has (OR)
  2. Michael steps down from the Red Scarlet which has proved to be the most luckiest in the last decade.

But what can Narain Karthikeyan do if by chance his efforts go un-noticed? Well for this question, maybe a person from famous countries like japan, brazil or germany will need to bother. As far Narain, he is the FIRST Indian to be in that priced seat and obviously has to be noticed by all. So efforts or no efforts, Narain is sure to make up places fast. And he will. Like he tested for Jaguar Racing (which is now running as Red Bull Racing) at the end of 2002 but was unfortunate to land a drive in 2003 due to shortage of funds. But now, Narain has made sure he's there and proven to all that he is the fastest in his Team already.

Thank his sponsors Bharat Petroleum, TATA racing and JK Tyres, India also has its own Formula One racer, a Legend and a Hero for many followers of the racing religion
