This is a photograph of a satellite function of a Hindu marriage. The main marriage function was over about four days back but the bride and bridegroom have to do all these rituals before they can share the same bed.During this function the dead relatives are remembered and are asked for their blessings on the newly wed couple.The bride has to prepare a separate dish for them.

There are four types of students in this world, so one has to plan accordingly or the efforts and time devoted for them becomes futile. It’s also for the students to find out which category they belong to. The intelligence of a child a boy or a girl depends on the fathers DNA not the mother’s, in majority of cases. Like in every field of life there are few exceptions even in this mind boggling article.
NO1:The first one type of students can’t understand or take long time to understand it still then forget it very soon and hardly remember any thing. (Worst type), no tutorial or good institute can make them even an average students.
No2:The second variety is: Take long time to read and understand but once they have understood the subject matter then they remember it for long. They need more reading hours and a good teacher.
No3:The third type: They read fast and remember it fast but forget it faster. They perform well if their recently read subjects come in examination.
No4:The fourth variety is: The best of the lot (brilliant type) read fast and remember it for long/life. Most of the teachers and tutorial classes take credit for these types of students.
So one can look for other interest of a student like arts, games, sports, drama etc, they may excel in them not in studies. So parents and teacher first assess the class/category/inclination of the student and accordingly invest your money, time and energy for them or the student or you will get depressed and commit suicide.

dear viewers, i had written yesterday that due to the Missile testing of AGNI II there will be some ecological change in form of rise in temprature in the eastern part of India but thanks to ISRO technology the AGNI II was a failure (as per the times of India report,) so enjoy the winter fellows.Thanks for viewing my blog.

Dear readers,
Tonight India is going to test yet another of it's short range missile(AGNI II) at the coast of Orissa.I have mentioned many times my concern about this testing in the Bay of Bengal but this is a defence issue of India so no one cares about the sudden change in weather in this part of India.Please take a satellite picture of today 1500 hours and compare it with tomorrows 1500 hours of Eastern part of India. If no change or there is no warming effects then i may be wrong that these testing are one of the factors of change in climate in Orissa.
see you tomorrow.

Those Indians who are highly motivated and do not like to see the darker side of India may not read this. I am an Odiya first then Indian. Recently a famous cricketer of India said “Mumbai is for Indians”. No doubt this is a political statement which the veteran politician Bal Thackeray objected to. It’s like advising a rapist to look at all girls and woman as their sisters and mother. If that be so, every one is a citizen of this world, then why passports and visas? Mumbai has contributed immensely for the citizens of India but of late Bangladeshi and non Maharashtrians are spoiling the political scenario of the western India.
See the Mumbai blast, The Mumbai terrorist attacks both occurred when congress was and is in power. That’s exactly what Thackeray sahib is worried about. You destroy the place where you earn your livelihood? What that little Indian batting star told was keeping the “Bharat Ratna” in mind at the behest of some congress politicians but not his own.
There is nothing wrong in telling that I am an Odiya or Maharastrian or a Bengali first then an Indian. It’s like egg first or hen first.
I salute you Mr. Thackeray for your pro Indian approach; we need a few top politicians like you in India to make it a super power.

Four things are the usual headlines of most of the Odiya news papers.
The first one is the mining scandal; second the suicide by farmers, third one is blowing up of rail tracks or bridges and the fourth one high level corruption.
We must discuss the most disturbing events of this non congress ruled states of India. There are some states which are not ruled by congress (God Father) . Odissa (recently the name has been changed from Orissa) has not changed its fortune. Every other day there is a rail roko (block), Rasta roko or blowing up of the railway track. Why? Who these Maoists’ are and what they want- no one including those engaged in this anti national activities know it. Some one has to redefine these nomenclatures, terrorists, dacoits, Maoists, anti-national ,Ugrabadi, Ulfas; politicians and anti Indians? Are they same or different?
It’s but obvious the party which is not in power is doing it. I think the people of India who are engaged in this sort of destructive work are worse than the forces out side India.
When Sivaji Patil was the home minister, he was forced to resign because he was nicely dressed when the terrorist attacked Mumbai citizens and hotels. But who cares when hundreds of innocent Indians (Odiya) are taken hostage in train, some dozen Odiya police officers are killed by the unknown forces in the state of Odissa why no Indians ask the question, why all these disturbances in Odissa, Jharkhand, Bihar& Chhattisgarh? Simple they are not ruled by God mother.
Highway is blocked for hours if a woman is raped some hundreds of miles away.
Rail roko(block) is a birth right for the ruffians and politicians. The politicians seldom get killed nor are they stranded in a train or in a bus, simply because they do not travel by them!
The problems of farmers committing suicide in Odissa is a daily head line news. Tell me are farmers Government employee or servants or Government has asked them to go for farming and take loan beyond their repaying capacity? Any one dying due to any cause is projected as suicide or starvation by press and media— the verdict “Government must resign.”
Do you know a few months back when the CM of Andhra Pradesh was killed due to a helicopter crash many Telugu people committed suicide as reported by the press. But the bean was spilled by some one who told that any one dying during that period was projected as suicide, so that the Ex-CM’ s son become the CM and the next of kin of those died got some thousands of rupees.!! Such is the fraud level in India.
Odissa depends for its food grain on Andhra and other states as the farming lands have been sold to builders and no cultivation takes place in Odissa excepting a few districts. Odissa depends on eggs, fish, chicken, fruits from Andhra. The best varieties of fish from Odissa are sold to Bengali babus in West Bengal. I do not know why any one (farmer) should cultivate land for rice when Odissa Government sells it for rupees two per KG, that farmer must be a lunatic nothing else.
Regarding the high-level corruptions and mining scandal they are both sides of the same coin-- goes hand in hand with all politicians .If India is going to be destroyed or ruined it will not be by Pakistan or China nor by Muslims it will be by our own elected politicians along with the so called intellectuals called bureaucrats.
The leading news paper of India are in the hands of the party which is in power so never you can find an article similar to this one in any news papers.
Thanks for going through this article.

I was gifted with an orphan mongoose by one of my tribal patient.It was some few days old and could hardly walk.I had to feed it with milk with the help of cotton swabs.It grew fast and wanted chicken and liver for its lunch. Would sleep very early in it's small cage in side the blanket.My two German Spitz were her very close friends.They would take their food together, no fighting no grumbling.Slowly she became a family member.Once we had the privilege of watching it fighting with a snake.When i was busy with my computer it will climb the table and disturb me.Mongoose do not like cold weather so when the AC is on it will coolly enter the pillow cover and sleep.When i call it by name(Banoo) it will climb on my shoulder and leak my ears.



God said--- you offer me any flower or even leaves with sincerity and devotion, I accept it with pleasure, but in Bhubaneswar, the Capital city of Odissa, people have different ideas about pleasing the Gods. This city is also known as Temple city. Coming back to the topic of flowers this is what happens day in and day out in this place. People pay small amount to girls or boys to steal flowers from the neighbor’s garden. Sometimes grown up ladies, gentleman or even old men climb the wall and pluck flowers from other's garden.
Hindus have some two hundred or more occasion for special Pujas to their favorite God or Goddesses, so flowers are in demand throughout the year. If you have a garden small or big with flowers, you have to bear the pathetic condition of your plants when you get up in the morning, as the early birds (flower thieves) have plucked them leaving a few for your God.
This is small episode which will make you relieve your stress if you have similar problem.
Mrs: Richa: “did you hear me, Sandeep? The old man has plucked the morning glory flowers.”
Mr: Sandeep: “So what, you have to bear with It.!”
Richa: But they are stealing flowers to please the Gods, this is bad!”
Sandeep: But God knows it’s from our garden, so without any efforts from our side, someone else is doing it for us, so why worry?”
Richa: But this is not correct, that old man who comes early once asked me ‘some one is taking away the flowers before me, madam? Why don’t you abuse him?’
See, he is doing it for months and with out any shame he is telling me to watch out, shameless people?
Sandeep: before we came here, my friend Bhabani had told me about the corruptions here and flower-thieves of Bhubaneswar, that’s why I was not interested for this flower garden. But do not worry, God knows all and we need not bother about these flower thieves and increase our blood pressure and tension.
Richa: I must thank you for your logic.
Thank God, Richa and Sandeep's plants bloom flowers round the year in plenty and keep Richa and the flower thieves happy.

In last six decades of my life the most interesting apprehension has been the sudden catastrophic end to the civilization.This prediction is not new to any of us.So do not go on a buying sphere before 21st December 2012.This is a trick by the business houses.The young generation will go for more spending, will drink more will have more sex partners, will go for newer vehicles, move around the world and so on and so forth, the result will be revival of the doomed economic crisis in the world.The mother earth will be inhabitable after hundred of years not now and all that because of us no one else.The scientific discovery which has given us so much pleasure and comfort will ultimately unwind every thing for the human race.No one should follow the American way of rich,lavish,unsocial and artificial life style.Time is running out friends, lets do some thing for our next generation.We are a selfish lot want to live for our self only at the cost of other animals, trees and other living beings.
I invite our new generation to suggest how to save our mother earth.Spend on earth development not on moon.


This may appear irrational and unscientific but this is a truth .I have written this many times even sent letters to editors of many odiya and English news paper but due to reason best known to them they were never published.There is a missile testing centre at Orissa coast at Chandipur, some 15 kilometers from Balasore.The sudden weather change in Orissa occurs just after Agni or Akash or Pruthivi long range missiles are tested just to show our defence strength to the rest of the world specially to Pakistan and China.Unless this range is removed from Orissa in few more years this beautiful state of India will be reduced to a desert.Remember the heat generated by one missile is equivalent to one million two wheelers running non stop for a month.If am wrong please correct me.

Yesterday i got a telephone call from the emergency department of our hospital, to attend to a critically ill patient.I dressed up as quickly i could and took out the car.After driving a kilometer i noticed, hundreds of people on road with burning tyres and large stones in the middle of the road.The police asked me to go back.When i told him 'am a doctor has to go to hospital'
"you can take another route" was the cool answer.
The other alternative road was non existent.I had to return back.I rang up to my colleague to attend the case.(This road block was due to an accident some 15 kilometers away.Police always arrives but some two to three hours too late.)
This is a common occurrence in Odissa,India.(the name has recently been changed from Orissa,)Starting from the death of a hen to a human being, people close the national highway for hours.The common head line news in every day Odiya news paper is full of road traffic or railway accidents. "Such and such place father&son, father&daughter run over by speeding bus or truck or car, highway blocked for 3 hours."
The road sense, driving norms, traffic rules, faulty road constructions,bulls,cows and dogs on the road,humps and bumps,poor vehicular maintainance, non existent traffic rules,poor lighting arrangements of roads and vehicles, non functioning traffic lights are a common sight in this capital city of ODISSA called Bhubaneswar.More number of young people die due to road traffic accidents in a year, than H1N1 and AIDS patients put together.


The constant urge to surpass all known boundaries has been one of the major instruments responsible for the evolution of mankind. It is what was important in major discoveries like the wheel and even the rise and fall of great empires. Therefore, it would be right to say that when the urge to redefine human boundaries is lost, the path to victory becomes but a distant dream. Having always been a patriot, I find it very disturbing that our country has become an ideal example for such situations. When it comes to making the final leap or putting in the final effort, we refuse to get off the couch, thinking it’s not our job. Imagine the shame when a nation with a population of one billion, where sports stars are God, it is a matter of great shame if we are unable to bring home any major sporting event. Sporting authorities the world over have snubbed our sports associations by highlighting the lack of infrastructure. Recently, when the charge for organising the 2016 Olympics was given to Brazil, analysts here at home started questioning why India was unable to even be shortlisted as one of the finalists. However, when we come to think of it in a rational and logical sort of way, we realise that various factors are responsible for this dismal state of affairs in the nation. Let us dwell a bit deeper into the factors at play here and try to reach a logical conclusion as to the maladies crippling our sports system.
When we start to analyse the situation, it would only be fair to compare ourselves with the previous host of the event, our neighbour, China. Whenever discussion turns to the New World Order, these neighbouring giants are always mentioned in the same breath as the up-and-comers. I understand the arguments, but remain deeply sceptical about the prospects for both countries, though for vastly different reasons.
With the Beijing 2008 Olympics drawing to a close, one must concede that China has managed to pull off a fabulously successful advertisement for itself, even though its ugly authoritarianism and environmental shamefulness remained on plain view throughout. So the question nags: Could India hold an Olympics that would flatter, rather than embarrass the nation? I, for one, seriously doubt it.
The Olympics requires the host nation to provide three basic elements: infrastructure, architecture, pageantry. This is no mean feat; just ask the organizers of Athens 2004 and Atlanta 1996. Greece failed in two of the three, just managing to save face, largely as a result of the world’s extremely low expectations. The United States failed across the board.
Infrastructure development takes vision and planning – not areas in which India has distinguished itself. Delhi is the only metro in the country which appears to spend on infrastructure in anything but an ad hoc, purely corruption-driven way – not that Delhi’s version of forethought has made it even remotely the world-class city it purports to be. Sure, it is difficult to remake old cities – although that is, essentially, what Beijing has done – but even its built-from-scratch, nouveaux riches commercial neighbour, Gurgaon, is an almost perfect study in tastelessness and dysfunction.
One of India’s most challenging infrastructural problems, from an international public relations point of view, would be to develop habits and systems of internationally acceptable public hygiene. I suspect that most first-time visitors to India will be under-impressed by the filth and noise of their surroundings, and the television cameras will have a difficult time avoiding the blight of omnipresent garbage, which flows through the streets of India the way water flows in riverbanks.
Perhaps India, like Greece, might shine in the spectacle, even if they would fail in the organizational aspects of building proper infrastructure to host the athletes and visitors in style and comfort. From classical dance to Bollywood, India shines in artistic performance. But would this kind of close-up oriented presentation captivate the world when executed on the scale of an Opening Ceremonies? Perhaps not. Have you ever attended a major pop concert in India (or involving India performers travelling abroad, for that matter)? They are unwatchable cheesy. A.R. Rahman may write world-class music, and Adnan Sami and Asha Bholse may be stars of Indian popular song, but their live concerts are hideously amateurish affairs. They are often accompanied by filmy dancing which, though so attractive on the screen, comes off as a bad joke when the scale of the movements is dwarfed by the live venue.
Architecture is an extremely important element in the Olympic mix if, as with China, the aim is to establish one’s prestige and announce one’s global intentions. It expresses a country’s ambition, accomplishment, sense of style, sophistication, and ability to produce tangible outcomes suited to a major occasion. Most of the world sees the host nation only via satellite feed, and images of the Olympic venues are the ubiquitous “context-establishing shots” which begin the coverage of almost every event. A country can do no better advertising for itself when hosting an Olympics than provide monumental, attractive architecture. This has certainly been a key part of China’s strategy – and it has worked.

Are there great Indian architects working today? Surely there must be. But what are they building? And would insular, foreigner-resenting India consider commissioning high-profile Olympic buildings from international architects? Indian national pride would never allow it to do what even xenophobic China was able to do – what the entire rest of the world does: commission world class architecture from throughout the world.
Then there is the little problem of paying for the infrastructure and new architecture. After the politicians and bureaucrats have siphoned-off their monumental bribes and contractors have been selected on the basis of kick-backs rather than ability, will the bid-winners have sufficient talent and remaining resources to deliver quality buildings, on time? There is certainly plenty of past experience on which to hazard a prediction.
I have tremendous affection for India, and a like degree of antipathy for China. But there is no question which country has announced its presence on the world stage with panache and which can never hope to do so. “I love my India” as much as the next guy, but not because it has a prayer of achieving greatness in my lifetime.
