Date Tempo Attempo?

images-15_thumb.jpgMany a readers queried as to what is meant by DATE TEMPO ATTEMPO, the emblem for both AVENUES and ETERNITY blogs. This was the slogan raised and used by the great German revolutionary Gairybaldi that means ‘GIVE TIME TO TIME’ meaning thereby that one has to understand and realise the value of time and follow the same meticulously as it is immanently pertinent a factor in one’s life. There is a small story. When he met his Image result for garybaldifirst lady love in some remote forest he greeted her with the words “TU DEVIZHAR MIA” (sic) that in turn means ‘you are supposed to be mine’ with the advice of DATE TEMPO ATTEMPO he gave her. Later they became life partners and they pursued the campaign jointly then onwards. Time is a great phenomenon to be adhered to with honesty and discipline, time is immortal as against any thing else in the universal cycle. This is a factor that never grants any excuses in whatsoever circumstances.

Why feel sceptic when someone is praised?

Image result for praise or criticismPraising, adoring or ridiculing and condemning are a greater part inbuilt in a human system and they are generated wanted or unwanted targetting some one or the other with some prejudice or otherwise. some have it as their propensity and there are some who do it to draw the attention of others -purpose? It is to nurture and nurse their own mental faculties in a negative measure that is satiating to them prone as they are to involving themselves in controversies. I as a singular entity in the society am very often targetted to a large scale mud slingings for my writings and some of my readers don’t miss even a soliary instance of a lacunae lurking somewhere. I admire them. There are even giant sized media organisations like WordPress who are known for ruthlessly branding any praise for the author as SCAM. Why? Is it that the authors/ writers don’t deserve a praise to boost up their morale? Critical appreciation could be the correct version of an appreciation or otherwise. Confined to this, if so goes the cycle of exchanging comments on the articles of the author concened done dispassionately, what is in currency need not be ruled out.

Advanced technology–a handy tool in perpetrating frauds:

Frauds are no more a difficulty, they are rather more user friendly to the cheaters, thanks to the highly developed modern technology in the country. Neelramesh Neelakantan, a veteran on awareness issues and front runner in the movement on pension issues in State Bank of India. He published a story in facebook narrating his experience gained through a friend of his. The message so published is important to every body as it may happen with any one and from that point of view it acts as a warning signal to the advantage of a large number of people. The relevant portion of the message is reproduced below:

This is to caution my friends about door to door delivery scam, pls take a bit of time to read it: The message was sent to me by one of my friends
This scam is actually very cleverly worked out that you will not suspect of anything wrong:
The following is an account of the incident.
《Wednesday a week ago, I had a phone call from someone saying that he was from a company called: "Express Couriers," He asked if I was going to be home because there was a package for me that required a signature .
The caller said that the delivery would arrive at my home in roughly an hour. Sure enough, about an hour later, a uniformed delivery man turned up
with a parcel and a bottle of wine. I was very surprised since there was no special occasion, and I certainly didn’t expect anything like it. Intrigued, I inquired as to who the sender was.
The courier replied, "I don’t know, I’m only delivering the package."
Apparently, he said the sender would want to give you a surprise and a card would be sent separately… , it happened that my birthday was on the way also, so we thought could be from a distant friend. There was also a consignment note with the gift.
He then went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol, there was a Rs 257.50 "delivery/ verification charge," providing proof that he had actually delivered the package to an adult (of legal drinking age), and not just left it on the doorstep where it could be stolen or taken by anyone, especially a minor.
This sounded logical and I offered to pay him cash. He then said that the
delivery company required payment to be by credit or debit card only, so
that everything is properly accounted for.
He added they also don’t carry cash to avoid loss or likely targets for
robbery.
My wife, who by this time was standing beside me, pulled out her credit card, gave to him to swipe the card on a small mobile card machine with a small screen and keypad and asked to key in the verification code.
Frankly at this point we never suspected anything abnormal and a receipt was printed out and given to us, he then wished us good day and went off as normal,
To our horrible surprise, between Thursday and the following Monday, Rs 50,000 had been charged/withdrawn from our credit account at various ATM machines.
Apparently the "mobile credit card machine," which the delivery man carried had all the info necessary to create a "dummy" card with all our card details, of course with the verification code.
Upon finding out about the illegal transactions on our card, we immediately notified the bank to stop payment, but already too late.
We went to make a Police report, and was confirmed quite a number of households had been similarly hit.
WARNING: Be wary of accepting any "surprise gift or package," which you neither expected nor personally ordered, especially if it involves any kind of payment as a condition of receiving the gift or package. Also never accYuhept jI anything if you do not personally know or there is no proper
identification of who the sender is.
Above all, the only time you should give out any personal credit card information is when you yourself initiated the purchase or transaction!
PLEASE Pass this on, it may just prevent someone else from being swindled.

Prithviraj Chauhan–history is gruesome and also a nest of rumours:


prithvi_raj_chauhan1.thumbnail

There is an ocean of a coverage dealing with the great Indian hero Prithviraj Chauhan and his love Samyogita containing enough of material in relation to them. It is in fact a sort of  debate between those who worship them as the greatest of heroes belonging to India and those who talk much otherwise, in a sort of filthy language adding names to romance between the two. There are certain who talked quite in a positive measure honestly taking history in the very spirit of it. One such observation is made by Suddhatma and with a view that a dispassionate analysis on so called history reaches a bigger number number of the readers, the same is reproduced below:

History is gruesome but is more so because it has less details and more rumours.

1st Ghori’s Tomb : The plunderer cannot even rest in peace – people coming to pay respect has to stampede some unmarked grave before paying their visit or respect.Ghori might have been a victor in outward battle but was assassinated like a stray dog while offering his prayers – since God is most cruel to those who asks forgiveness in prayers after commiting crimes.

2nd Princess Samyukta : Commited Jauhar and there was no memorial for her saintly character coz they lost the kingdom to heathens and no was around to commemorate or honor the death of their queen.Also fire leaves no body for entombment or burial – hence even if the heathens tried to violate her dead body – and then entomb – that never occured.

3rd King to Assassin : Ghori wanted to take captured royal slaves to his home in Afghanistan, hence he took Prithviraj Chohan prisoner and there he demeaned him, kept him among slaves and some say – even blinded him .This is very natural , we know how the Persian Emperor Xerxes treated King Leonidas of Sparta after defeating him at the cost of half of his army to just three hundred men.
However, Prithviraj Chohan escaped and joined up with rebels in Afghanisthan itself and became their top assassin and one auspicious day – he killed the bigot Ghori while in prayer – just like Ghori defeated him at Panipat.
Then the Chohan King gave himself up or comitted suicide ,since life did not matter to him much, as he had his revenge.

4th India never became fully Islamic ,but is growing back to its Hindu supremacy nation : The slave dynasty, the lodhis, the khiljis, the mughals,the nizams,the pathans and every piece of bigot heathens tried everything from religious taxes to open slavery to eliminate Hinduism and their glorious state of affairs from here but never succeeded.The Rajputs,the Sikhs and the Marathas crushed every piece of bigot stronghold and reduced the Islamic hegemony in India to nothing.
And now these Ghazis are mere terrorists living on borrowed time and hiding behind pseudo-secular protection.

5th DESTRUCTION OF AFGHANISTAN : The wiping out off the Kingdom of looters and plunderers stemmed from this very soil of India.
In the Third Battle of Panipat : the forces of Ghori’s descendant Ahmad Shah Abdali was bled heavily and they won a very disastrous battle against a mere siege contingent of Marathas and when he heard of a force of 1,00,000 more Marathas are crossing the Narmada – he just turned tail and left India begging for peace and truce to the then Maratha Peshwa not to attack Afghanistan.
The Sikh empire started feeding off Afghan Ghurid territory and kept reducing it till was reduced to present day Afghanistan beyond Pakistan.
The Anglo conquest of Afghanistan, ended the Ghurid supremacy , destroying the Ghurid forts and taking great joy in pillage and violation of afghan population.
The afghans were so enraged of British, that their women peed on captured and fallen soldiers of British forces.
This British force was actually a British-Indian force and had full force of Indian Hindu sepoys and commanders under British Major and Colonels who unified and finished Afghan Ghurid power.

It took a 800 years time – but revenge was served in full.

Now the land of Ghori is nothing but a battle field of western power and despotic religious fanatics and refuge seeking whores , while the land of Prithviraj and Samyukta has flown to Moon and has full arsenal of Nuclear bombs and progressing steadily.

Prithviraj Chauhan/Sanyogita–forcing sex oriented ugly thoughts:


I wrote several dozens of articles on Prithviraj Chauhan on this blog and obviously it had to include his love Sanyogita which were  a hit with tremendous popularity at the readers level. No contents of any work remain original after they reach the readers as they are  the ones who view the object with their own bent of mind in much wider a proportion. You talk of birds and some reader thinks of a dove and thought of an owl may flash into the mind of the other one. Whatever be the object and the contents every reader receives it differently. That is what happened in the case of my posts on Prithviraj Chauhan. Fed up with the vulgar language exchanged between pro Prithviraj Chauhan and his enemy Mohd Ghori by way of lengthy comments, I actually stopped writing about the great Indian hero Prithviraj Chauhan. It looks like a well organised gang is hell bent to torpedo the publication on this count. They took exception of important extracts quoted from eminent historians in the post using a filthiest possible language. After a big gap, the mud slinging and use of a vulgar most style of expression is resumed by the gang by way of comments. I am restraining myself to aggressively react and deal with the situation but instead I simply appeal to the antagonists that they have no reasons to read their own perversion between the lines. They can’t erase history nor can they discard the facts. Better it is for them not to go through the writeups which are not to their taste and fancies. Why read something that is not to the taste of the readers concerned or why should they see only sex and vulgarity in a text? It goes without saying that all Indians, and me too, are worshippers of the great hero, Prithviraj Chauhan, but there is no reason to take exception of calling a spade a spade.

Small things too matter much:


MyDiary:

Nothing in life is too small, small things may rather matter much at times and what counts is the kind of perception an individual possesses. If a man believes in an art of living, he has a bumper scope to locate the areas which count much from the humane angle generating an atmosphere of love all around him. I have too small a story to narrate. I normally avoid going to doctors as theirs is exclusively a commercial behaviour sans any human touch which is otherwise basically an essential ingredient for them. If at all I need some consultation on health or say for an eye check up I prefer to go to a local hospital called Jawaharlal Rohatgi Netra Chikitsalaya just as a commoner, get myself registered paying necessary fee for the purpose and wait for my chance to come.  I was examined there by a senior vision specialist known as Khan Sahab who has the reputation of being otherwise a hard task master while conducting the check up with harsh murmurs in between. I offered my greetings to him with an element of  cordiality followed by a hearty ‘thank you’ after the testing was over and he referred me to an eye specialist doctor. She was late and I had to wait for her sitting on a chair in the lounge after submitting my registration folder to her assistant –my wait list number being 10, it was placed at the bottom of the heap. In between I noticed that Khan Sahab had entered the doctor’s chamber for a  minute or so. When the doctor came it was to my surprise that she attended me first of all with utmost cordiality and rapt attention. My guess is that it was Khan Sahab who took pains to manage priority to my folder in view of the severe back ache I had which aspect I had shared with him when he was conducting my vision testing lowering my neck or raising it upward with a view to fixing a correct direction. Why did he bother so much for me or my back ache going somewhat out of the way? I had done him no favours except that I was cordially courteous to him. I found a real gentle man in him and I was just wondering why people projected his image as a harsh person. The story confirms that ‘courtesy begets courtesy’ if practiced honestly and faithfully.
