What makes me sad.....

 

Whenever cool breeze kisses my face softly, I hate that bcoz it reminds me of u.

Whenever the morning sun smiles at me, I hate that bcoz it reminds me of u.

Whenever the evening sun says bye, I hate that bcoz it reminds me…

Whenever cottony clouds hover above me, I hate that bcoz it reminds me…

Whenever rain drops tickles me, I hate that bcoz it reminds…

Whenever the butterfly tries to woo me, I hate that bcoz it reminds…

Whenever I see flowers dancing on their branches, I hate that bcoz…

Whenever I realize I’m just a name for u, I hate that bcoz…

Whenever u r too busy to forget me all day, I hate that…

Whenever I misses u without any reason, I hate that…

Whenever I find myself thinking about u, I hate myself.

 

I hate to hate anything in life, but ur absence did the magic…

 

Now I hate everything which I used to luv...

Shameful consequences of supporting wrong people.

Outrage to follow UK headline that asks if Manmohan is 'Sonia's poodle'

After Time magazine, which branded the Prime minister as an underachiever on its cover just last week, a UK daily has carried a similar piece with a headline that is likely to provoke fierce outrage among the Congress.

"Manmohan Singh: Saviour or Sonia's Poodle" runs in today's edition of The Independent. It offers few observations that go beyond what Time magazine made, or the analysis offered in a Standard and Poor's report in June that said the Prime Minister has no real hold over his Cabinet.

The Independent says "Observers say one of Mr Singh's problems is that he has no genuine political power. Rather, he owes his position to Sonia Gandhi... this has meant he has sometimes been unable to even control his cabinet" and "From within his ruling Congress Party there are repeated, if oblique, demands for him to step aside ahead in favour of his presumed successor, Rahul Gandhi."

The Independent says that as far as India's liberalization goes, "In something of an air-brushing of history, Mr Singh received the lion's share of the credit, while the role of the prime minister of the day, PV Narasimha Rao, was omitted." (Read the article) The reporter, Andrew Buncombe, goes on to say that the PM is a "man whose reputation is at risk of being permanently damaged."   

The piece acknowledges that "While he may unfairly have become the target for criticism of an entire administration, it is he who needs to do something if he wants to secure a favourable place in history."

The Prime Minister's Congress party has begun its week defending the PM against President Obama's criticism that the investment climate in India is deteriorating. Corporate Affairs Minister Veerappa Moily said that the US leader appears to be misinformed.

But for the Congress, facing general elections in two years at the very outside, the growing wave of PM-bashing in the international media is a PR nightmare. Last week, Law Minister Salman Khurshid ran into trouble when he said that the party is waiting for Rahul Gandhi to accept more responsibility. "Until now, we have only seen cameos of his thoughts and ideas...but he has not weaved all of this into a grand announcement. This is a period of waiting," he said in a newspaper interview. But a day later, he said his remarks had been taken out of context and that from now on, he would ensure that discussions about the Congress' leadership would be confined to the party.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don’t think anybody can express their views in a better (or I should say) in more shameful way, congress used to say that opposition is giving bad name to the government. Now what??? I still remember PM’s strong reply to Team Anna, but now outsiders r also seeing/saying the same thing, now what???? Will he quit politics immediately or he would like to take 2 more years  and bring lot more shame to the Sikh community. I’m just waiting for the climax scene; wonder in what way our PM had planned to end his political carrier.

Mumbai: A 12-year-old school-going boy was luckless enough to get hit by a speeding biker, but was fortunate to be found by a good samaritan, who took him to hospital and even deposited his gold chain with the doctors as collateral for the medical expenses.

The incident took place at Jitendra road near DJ High School at Malad on Tuesday around 7 am. Meet Shah, 22, was on his way to college when he saw a biker come and hit a boy on a bicycle. Instead of helping the victim, the biker fled from the scene.

"I took the boy to a clinic in an auto and admitted him for treatment as he was still unconscious. I was in a hurry, as I needed to get to my college for some project work, but was also concerned about his health. I handed my gold chain worth Rs. 60,000 to the doctor and also my mobile no. I got my chain back in the afternoon and the victim's family thanked me profusely," Shah told MiD DAY.

Heart of gold
"We are very grateful to him as he took Kashyap to the clinic for treatment at the right time. He also gave his gold chain to the doctor, which no one else would have done. My son currently has pain in his right leg and hand," the victim's father said.

"The biker escaped to avoid police action. The victim was injured and that youth took him to a doctor for medical care," said Ronak Savla, a witness.

"Initially, I was angry about his act, but later realised that not only has my son helped save a life, but has also set a good example for others. I am proud of him," said Bipin Shah, Meet's father.

Meet Shah is a first-year Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM) student at Nagindas Khandwala College. He stays at Bhupendra Niwas, Jitendra Road, Malad.

As the victim's injuries were not serious, no police complaint has been made.

 

 

May god bless Meet shah with “success & gud health” for his priceless act of kindness.

God Particle discovered?

God Particle discovered? Scientists could make announcement soon

Geneva: It has been fancifully dubbed the angel of creation and, to the particular scorn of physicists, the god particle.

The Higgs Boson is said to have appeared out of the chaos of the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago and turned the flying debris from that primeval explosion into galaxies, stars, and planets.

Its formal discovery, according to a broad scientific consensus, would be the greatest advance in knowledge of the universe in decades.

But until now, in the four decades of research since its existence was first posited, no-one has claimed to have more than seen a hint of the Higgs Boson.

This may be about to change.

On Wednesday at the CERN particle physics research centre near Geneva, two separate teams of "Higgs Hunters" - a term they profess to hate - may well announce they have spotted it.

Or at least something that looks incredibly like it.

"Think of it as a smoking duck," says Oliver Buchmueller, a senior scientist on one of the teams, the CMS.

"If it walks like a Higgs and it quacks like a Higgs, then we would have to at least consider the possibility that we have a prominent new member of the Boson family on our hands."

The Higgs Boson is a vital component of the "Standard Model" - the all-encompassing 30-year-old scientific theory of how the universe works at the simplest level.

Without it, says U.S. physicist Matt Strassler, "nothing like human beings, or the earth we live on, could exist".

WHY A BOSON

Why is it called a boson? Because elementary particles, the building blocks of the cosmos, come in two types - bosons and fermions - and the Higgs has been assigned to the first.

Physicists say the particle is like a wave from what would be the otherwise invisible Higgs field and would provide prime evidence that that underlying force is there.

Buchmueller, like all scientists at CERN, is silent on what might be revealed on July 4 by scientists who have analysed the product of many trillions of mini-big bangs created over the past two years in CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

"We will all just have to be patient till Wednesday," says Pauline Gagnon, a Canadian physicist on CMS' rival team Atlas, blogging from a big particle physics conference in Australia.

Last December, CMS and Atlas told a similar seminar at the sprawling CERN campus on the Swiss-French border, that they had seen "tantalising glimpses" of what could be the boson, named after 82-year-old British theoretical physicist Peter Higgs.

Since then, power in the underground LHC has been ramped up and the rate of almost light-speed particle collisions in it has been tripled in an attempt to produce something more definite.

A sense that "something" has been seen has been bolstered not only by the announcement of the CERN seminar and a live video feed to the Melbourne congress but by other linked events scheduled around the globe.

New York's Columbia University said it was holding an early-hours pyjama party in the hope of seeing "sub-atomic fireworks".

VARIOUS FORMS

In London, a concert hall across from the Houses of Parliament has been booked for a similar, but daytime, event. Japanese, Russian and Chinese scientists will be watching too.

At the U.S. Fermilab near Chicago, where scientists spent three decades looking for the Higgs in their Tevatron collider which was shut down last December as Washington cut off funds, another seminar has been set for Monday.

That gathering, according to the centre's daily bulletin, will hear the final "Higgs results" from the Tevatron, a much less powerful machine than the mighty LHC.

But just what will be announced at CERN - and Fermilab - remains far from clear.

To claim a discovery, scientists have to have a "5 sigma" certainty - or be sure that there is less than a one in a million chance it is a fluke.

The Higgs, both field and boson, could come in various forms, specialists say, and although one type may have been seen it may yet take time to determine exactly which one it is.

The question will probably remain open on whether it is a Standard Model version, or something else that will take scientists into the science fiction realms of "New Physics".

"It could prove to be a single child or have siblings, and what its hair colour or genetic code is would remain to be established before we know its true nature," said Buchmueller.

"It might be an alien, after all."
