Deteriorating Standard



THEN & NOW:
There has been tremendous development in scientific field all over the World so also in India. We will confine our self to India only and compare the moral, quality, character and attitude Degradation of the people of our country. Let’s start with politicians: We had social activists and politician’s likeMKGandhi, SarbapalliRadhakrishna, Rajendra Prasad, Neheru, LalBahadur Shastri, Sorojini Naidu, Vinobha Bhabhe, Kripalini, Malavya and many more. But we have Karunanidhi, Mamata, Nabin, Jaylalita, Jetly, Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, N.Sidhu, Laluprasad, RabdiDevi and the list goes on and on.
The dime a dozen nominated RajyaSabha members like Rekha, Sachin, Tirkey, many more who just been nominated for financial gains of the concerned party. They simply do nothing but endorse hundred of products. Many of these poor Rajya Sabha MPs have their own aeroplane.We had enough of politics, let’s switch to cricket.
Now a day, gentleman like GRViswanath, Wedekar, Nabab of Patuadi, Prasana, Venkat, Kirmani, Sardesai, Solkar, Borde and Kundaram are difficult to find on a cricket field. They have been replaced by Azarrudin, Sidhu, Virat, Harbachan, Srisant, Shastri, Aswini, Gambhir and Gangulies.Unfortunatly these spoilt brats are the idol of our present generation.
Coming to filmdom it’s the worst of all. Actors and actress have been replaced by body exposing film stars who have very little knowledge of acting. There is a difference between “actors” and ‘star’, now everyone in Hindi filmdom is a star but only a few are actors. Gone are the days of hero, heroin, villain, comedians and dancers now we have actress who is a vamp, heroin, item girl, and villain and also an erotic model on the screen. The hero too is also a villain, thief, comedian and lover. Convicted criminals are our Hindi film heroes. The names of the films are in English, one never knows whether it’s a Telugu or Hindi or English film. People spend around five to six thousand for a group of four for a film, food and olla fare in a mall. They claim themselves to be common man and few of them have BPL card too? The actors of the class of Dillip kumar,Rajkapoor,Devanand,Balrajsahani,SunilDutt,Rajendrakumar,Rajesh Khanna,Uttam Kumar,Shammi Kapoor,Pran,Jiban,Mehemood, AshokKumar,Gurudutt,Reheman and Uttpal Dutt are gone replaced with Salman,Sharukh,SajayaDutt,Hirtik,Akhaya,Rajanikant and Ranbir.
Actors like Nassirudin, OmPuri, Shobna Azmi, SmitaPatel, and Dipti Naval are a vanishing tribe.Engish speaking white skinned means she is fit for Hindi films. Not a single present Hindi film heroin’s name is worth mentioning. Because they can’t act the camera man projects vital parts of heroin instead of her face. They can only act in glamorous roles! Dubbed dialogue delivery! Not a single actress of present era can dance like Vijyantimala, Hemamalini, Wehda, AshaParekh and Madhubala. Even the Padma and Ratna award and international Nobel award has deteriorated and highly politically motivated.
To summarize there has been a down ward trend in every field of our Indian society but due to technical help the new generation is able to earn a lot and our press people project our future is rosy with rosy colored notes.

MODERN MACHINES




How stress Kills:
A young IT engineer Abhinandan,married three months back and was leading a happy married life at Punjab.He was hardly 32 years a graduate from Bhubaneswar.Both husband and wife were employed and were leading a star life, money was no problem for them.Suddenly on the dreadful Saturday night (14th) he had a chest pain and on way to hospital he breathed his last.Recently Abhinandan had undergone routine tests and the cardiologist said”Every thing is in perfect condition.”This is an example of stressful life taking away young lives where money has no value?

The youths of today getup with these gadgets, go to toilet--eat with, run with, travel with and sleep with them where as their wife sleeps elsewhere.They want money at any cost.Develop stress and take to drugs and suffer.Once some one starts to bring office in to his bed room he or she is finished, no purpose in life.

SOROJ MISHRA


                                                                                                            Once on a malaria workshop trip I had gone to CDRI Lucknow by flight, with Soroj Mishra in the year 2002. The meeting was a great success. The first CDRI product alpha beta arteether was tested under my chairmanship at Rourkela, IGH. Very few people know about this. Our health director was a scaredy cat was reluctant to try a new anti malarial drug at IGH.He was mortally afraid of the union. Doctor Soroj and Bhabani gave me the courage to take the responsibility and go ahead.                          
                                                                                          While returning back from Lucknow to Delhi our flight was delayed but by that time we had checked in. Around eleven in the morning it was announced that our flight is cancelled and it will be next day morning. Soroj with the train ticket from Howrah to Rourkela was running from pillar to post. I gave up because the counters were all closed and the passengers were furious. Lastly to pacify us they kept us in a star hotel. Soroj was my roommate. We were told that the lunch, evening snack and dinner and next day breakfast all will be free. Soroj was very intelligent and also a typical Brahmin who loved food. He read the menu and ordered four glasses of pure fruit juice each costing Rs: 75/, I asked him why so many? “Sir Paisa asul karna hey”. Dinner he started with sweet dish because there was no one at that table. Next day after a heavy breakfast we left for airport. The security fellow did not check our luggage once he came to know we are doctors from SAIL.I told Soroj “this is how security lapse occur”!
                                               Soroj met the airport manager and argued our point that “we have missed our connecting train?”The authority a reservation quota officer told Soroj ‘You see I do not travel by train, hence do not have any idea about refund. We do not give railway refund.”
Soroj was furious and argued the case ultimately the total amount of both the tickets was paid to us. I told Soroj “but for you I would have lost this money”. He said “in this world one should know how to get his or her dues or else someone else would take it”. I am yet to meet such an interesting, intelligent and happy go lucky type of personality in my life. Because of him I could go to Bangkok to deliver a lecture at the SARC meeting, as a faculty. He was very informal in life. He used to listen to my Odiya short stories and because of him and few of my friends I could become an Odiya short story writer. Sanjib with Soroj would come to our house to enjoy pokoda and mudhi.He never touched alcohol but acted as if he was drunk with apple fruit juice.
Soroj I miss you and your intelligent advice to me. Please excuse us for any mistake on our part which might have hurt you.
(In memory of my close friend doctor sorojkantimishra.)
PS: (Soroj is no more but the New ICU of IGH remains a solid remembrance of a great soul)

DOG LOVERS





FOR DOG LOVERS:

                                                                                    One of our new neighbors had kept a two year old pug-Chinese dog. Every morning and evening she would come ‘dressed up’ taking out her ‘Teddy’ for a walk. My Spitz (Ringo) was very envious on that new member in our colony. Once our Ringo starts barking we know Pug is out on the street. The young lady never talked to me but I was interested! Usually a new type of friendship develops in cities amongst dog lovers. From dog friendship human friendship flourishes. Some cases a young boy takes out their pet for a walk when he would meet a beautiful girl with her pet preferably a small one. There the boy meets girl story may start but rare in Hindi film dome lines because the script writers are not animal lovers.
                                                              We marked that Ringo was neither getting restless nor barking for a week. We thought madam with her Teddy might have gone to Delhi on vacation. Lastly I could not wait any longer and asked the security guard about that little Chinese dog. Rout babu the security guard said “sir, it is dead!”
I asked how. “May be food poisoning, I do not know. They have buried it inside their compound”. I felt sorry for my Ringo’s friend ‘Teddy’.
                                                                                    Keeping a dog is not an easy job. My father in-law a great dog lover used to say “never give a pup or a flower sampling free to any one, if he is not a genuine dog lover”. This pug is a delicate Chinese dog. Can’t tolerate heat, because of short neck, bones gets struck in its throat and are very susceptible to chest infections. Those who stay in apartment must remember that most people do not love dogs and cats hence they must think twice before keeping a pet. Our neighbor’s pet died due to extreme heat-she purchased an AC after the pet was gone. Friends do not keep a dog if you cannot spend an hour with it and your wife does not love dogs. Remember giving a bath to a dog is a tough job. A large sized dog means Rs: 3 to Rs5 thousand extra budgets plus air-conditioning charges per month! You have to develop patience, understand what the friend wants to say, they do not bark unnecessarily, and remember that. Chicken and fish bones can kill a dog. The dog food ‘pedigree’ is quite costly, if you can afford then purchase it or feed a vegetarian meal plus half liter of milk daily. Keeping a dog as a ‘watch dog’ is foolishness as per western standard. Keeping a dog tied to a chain 7/24 is animal cruelty-remember that. Insure your house not a dog for safety. Dogs are like faithful friends and children they understand your mood, even can tell if you are going to get hypoglycemia, epileptic fits or have a skin cancer very early. With children out of the country and your bedridden or dead wife, only a dog will greet you when you return from office or market with a wagging tail. They love its boss more than self, remember that.
