And then New York happened...


Life has veered out drastically ever since I moved to the states. This was an unexpected call that I myself didn't realize living a dream  that eventually turned out to be real. Everyone has an American dream and being an Indian I too had  once but those were the young days of my life. Life gave me an opportunity at a time when I was not expecting it. Living away from the family has moulded me in to a strong individual. That's when I realized that you got to be self motivated because your loved ones won't always be with you everytime. But till now it has been a good experience. I live with people who have a similar story like mine. Some with dreams of buying a new house, some with giving a better life to the family and some with ambitions of living the American life. Isn't that amazing?!


Everytime I hear the little son of my friend greeting him every evening, I realize life makes us pay many things. And then we have to sacrifice a lot for their happiness because its our loved ones happiness that matters to us the most. Amid  nostalgic memories, New York happened. Independence day was a long weekend here and being new to the states meant exploring things on your own because not everyone will help you. We , a group of like minded individuals decided to visit the most happening part of the states - New York. New York is a dream for many. There are lots of amazing sights worth seeing in New York and I am glad that NY happened too soon for us. It was one fine afternoon when my roomie informed us that a couple of guys were visiting Smoky mountains in the North Carolina during the Independence day long weekend. I would never say never to the fact that NC is not a happening place but with too much greenary around, it implies living a village life-  beautiful and serene. It dawned to us that we got to do something too and thus the idea of New York got pregnant in our brains. Now it was time to give life to the idea and execute the plan. We soon approached Shiva and Deepak, the desi boys when joined us late. We were determined to do something more fun if this plan succeeded. Yes, it happened!

I took the ownership of booking the relevant tickets and managing the expenses. Suraj, the Professor Bobeye of our group initiated the train of awesomeness by booking an AirBNB room at Harlem after thorough analysis and research. Prior to our voyage, I made an xl with all the amazing places to visit in the most amazing city in the world. Be it Central Park, Manhattan, Times Square or Wall Street - we were thrilled and excited even before we embarked on to this journey of awesomeness. I'd booked a Goto Bus which was a preventive measure to reduce our expense but that proved to be a disaster and we would regret it for not doing enough research for airplanes. Later one of our colleague informed us about the availability of cheaper flights being offered by South West airlines. May be next time, we would research more before heading for such trips.

On 1st July, we boarded the bus at 11.45 PM and there was only one thing on our mind - Enjoy life to the fullest as we won't have enough time later. We were hell excited. We got down at 47 Chrystie at NY. We walked and walked the streets of New York. We smiled at the numerous  trains greeting us and took a look at the beautiful and magnificent Brooklyn bridge from the Manhattan Bridge. It was indeed beautiful and from there we observed the skyline of New York as the One World Observatory building stood mighty! We then left to have our brunch as we were famished.  After exploring few options, we set our eyes on the Mughlai Indian restaurant at the Clinton road. Our taste buds never knew that they were about to be savoured by awesome food. We ordered chicken and then few more chicken. Post that we left for our transient abode, our apartment at Harlem. We accessed it by availing the service of Lyft. After getting refreshed, we left for the Central park. Central Park is a place where many hollywood movies have been shot. It was indeed pleasure walking through the lanes of the park where many young men and women traversed by riding rented bicycles. Deepak insisted that we get a bicycle but we cajoled him by mentioning things that can never be shared here. Just kidding!

We witnessed lovely couples and semi claden babes reading books and admiring the nature. Shiva never missed an opportunity to get clicked and our click spree never ceased. We hailed a Lyft cab and stamped our presence at the most lively place every. Times Square baby! We walked through the place , admiring tall buildings and by then it was already 6 and our One World Observatory visit was sat 8 PM. We quickly grabbed some food at the Halal Guys stall for $8 each. I say that it's too heavy and all of us took the box at the apartment. We went to the 9/11 Memorial and the One World Observatory sharp at 8 PM. One World Observatory is a great piece of work by  the greatest architects. The skylift, the fastest elevator, took us to the 102nd floor within no time. From there, we saw the skyline of New York. Nice beautiful buildings graced by the lighting's and the young night sky made it picturesque. Our click spree never stopped. Our eyes randomly strolled around and caught the attention of amazing people and many greeted us. Finally, we reached the apartment at 12.30. We were hungry and grabbed some Hagen Dasz, Greek Yogurt, Budweiser  from the Food Market on the other side of the building. We shared ghost stories as our eyes got tired and crashed.

The next morning we woke up at 9 and got ready. We were all set to visit the street that controls the Money. Yes, you guessed it right - Wall Street. We walked around the street and our eyes chanced upon several young beautiful faces. We said hello to the charging bull as many others fought their way out to touch the bulls testicles. It is said that touching the charging bulls testicles would make you rich. We all went there turn by turn and touched the bulls balls. Shiva, me and Deepak clicked with the fearless girl. We four addressed each other by character names. Suraj was Professor Bobeye, Shiva as Nuclear Nadal, Deepak as Uncle Tamir and yours truly as Admiral Aladeen. It was fun and adding fun to a trip is indeed fun. Isn't it? 










From there we left for the battery park from where our cruise for our next visit would be available. We were going to meet Liberty! As we walked, we saw a long queue and we were disheartened to see that we were standing behind some 1000 people. Soon Deepak asked a volunteer about the queue and she informed us that it was for the ticket booking. We then realized that we had wasted some precious 10 minutes of our life. We rushed to the other queue  that was for the ones with tickets. The statue of liberty beckoned us as we stood at the battery park. Smiling at us, she was ready to embrace each one of us. We got into the cruise and the click spree continued again. We took the photo of the Manhattan bridge and it was indeed a sight to see. We savored our taste buds by drinking the lemonades offered by lovely young college girls. Once we posed with the beauty in green, we headed for something that we should have covered earlier. Madame Tussaud's was not in our list but still we visited it. We posed with many amazing personalities ranging from former American Presidents, actors, sports personalities and media tycoons. It was memorable and everyone looked at us as if we were insane. We clicked with celebrities whom were not aware of. We finally bid adieu to New York at 9 PM after having our dinner at the Kaati Rolls near the Times Square.

The most fascinating thing about New York is the amazing tall sky scrapers. They are not only magnificent but mesmerizing too! I hope to visit this place once again. 

To some it up, our trip was planned hastily but it was well executed. Our first trip in the land of Trump was a successful one.

So, which place should we visit next?

Home Away - Again

Home Away - Again
At 21 when I stepped outside my home for the first time , I felt something unusual because I was going to stay from my family that I loved forever. My family was precious for me and of course family is precious for anyone! At that tender age, I got a posting at an unexpected location in North of India and I had not even envisioned working at that location.  But then, I somehow managed it. There were difficult situations but I was immature and not accustomed for such a major change in my life. In fact I didn't predict it. My mom used to be worried about her 21 yo son and of course she had some good reason to worry as I would call her every day and share my plights and sufferings with her.

But that solid experience  taught me life changing lessons. I  grew into a responsible individual. Exact 8 years later I am confronted with a similar situation. The only difference is that at that time I was too young but now I am a mature enough to understand things. Because I know that there are people who love you and constantly telling them your struggles at a new place will worry them. This time it was North of India but the South East of America. America was a dream country for many youngsters from the  far east. America beckoned!

I arrived here on 21st May 2017. The travel was smooth and at each terminal I had people who were helpful and answered all my questions. Its been one week in the US and I never felt like I was missing home. Social Media channels had made life  easier as I talk to my loved ones on an every day basis. Their physical presence won't be felt but at least you won't miss them because they are the one who actually care about you even you are far away.

How gracefully human minds evolve, right?  They adapt so quickly!  I hope to enjoy my stay in the new country - the land of opportunities. Lets see how it goes!

I had written a long post  the other day but I did not save it. Today when I launched blogger.com , it was just the title and an empty  content body that I witnessed.  At a first thought, I really felt weird and then I thought that I should be writing this. I have not had enough time for my blogs but I am at this point of my life where I feel that I should be giving more time to my blog and I believe that I would be doing it for sure.

I will be updating about my life in the US through my blog and I will blogging. It feels good to be back.

Sya

Homosexuality is against our Indian culture...

The Bijrang Sena youth beckoned two young boys talking to each other at the library.  The boys were fond of each other and loved each others company. Their relationship was known to the entire college. 

The Bijrang Sena youth slapped both of them and told, 'Homosexuality is against our Indian culture.'

The two boys quickly ran out of the library. They both were visibly hurt as they only craved for acceptance but the society rejected them.

The Bijrang Sena youth later logged into Facebook and got amazed by the rainbow dp that symbolised Gay Pride support. He was mighty impressed by it. 

Moments later, he quickly changed his display photo reflecting the Gay Pride colours and wrote a caption - ' I support Gays and Lesbians. '

Girl Child Vs Boy Child

Mahabir Phogat, a former Wrestling champion had lots of dreams on his eyes but unfortunately, he bowed down to family pressure and couldn't fulfil his dreams.
He thought that only a boy could fulfil his dream. But slowly his dreams started getting dimmed when his wife delivered four girls.

Even at that moment, Mahabir Phogat was of the opinion that only a guy could win a Gold medal for India at the  International stage. 

But one day his daughters thrashed a boy who abused them. This event led to Mahabir Phogat's Hruday Parivartan ( change of heart)

Imagine if this event hadn't happened like the Phogat sisters didn't go to school or something like that. In that case, Mr. Phogat would still be craving for a boy child to fulfil his dream. 

But anyways rest is history. So, it's Okay, Mr Phogat. But I appreciate the efforts you spent in your daughters. Good job done!

 Girl or a boy is decided by your Y chromosomes. You can't bribe your sperm by asking it to carry a Y chromosome. Whatever it be, be happy with it. It's your child. Be it, girl or boy - embrace and love them equally.

Freedom of Expression

A group of artists and economists returned their awards recently to protest the recent hateful incidents happening in the country.
Every opinion that the liberals provided were termed as Freedom of expression by the mainstream media. 

A firebrand Hindu nationalist leader made some not-so-soothing but a valid comment about the Muslim community. The mainstream media soon branded the nationalist leader as a hate monger and termed his speech as a hate speech.

But as per the Indian constitution, everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression.

Electronic Voting Machine

'We strongly object the use of the electronic voting machines in any kind of elections,' the leader of the Common Man Party said at the Press conference.

The Common Man Party had fared badly at a recently held state elections where they expected to win by a huge landslide. The leader of the Common Man Party who also happens to be the Chief Minister of the capital city conveyed his concerns that usage of the Electronic Voting machines has dimmed their chances to form the government in a north Indian state.

'So what are your thoughts on the elections held in the Capital city where the Common Man Party won 67 out of the 70 seats?' the journalist asked and continued, ' Even the Electronic Voting machines were used at that election.'

The Leader of the Common Man Party got irked by the question and abruptly left the press conference.

Don't Spit here

"Indians should learn a lot from the Americans, see there," he said, pointing his fingers towards the tobacco stained walls.
"Don't you think so?" he asked me.
He looked at it in disgust and walked towards the corner of the road.
"Vhaaak Thoooo!" He cleared his throat.
Stunned, I  said, "Really?"

Break and Bang

The Kiwis decimated South Africa in the first Semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup, denying their entry to reach the finals.

South African fans at home - "We are proud of our team and its okay they lost but they were real fighters and reaching the semi-finals of a prestigious tournament itself is an achievement.

Indian fans at home - "South Africa deserved to win and they are true champions. We respect the way they played and admired each of their matches.  Thanks for the wonderful matches, AB Devilliers, Morkel, Steyn and the entire South African team. We would have loved to see them play India in the finals"

Two days later, India was humbled by the Australian team in the 2nd Semi-final of the ICC Cricket world cup.  It was a humiliating defeat. 

Same Indian fans at home broke star batsman Virat Goli's restaurant. A group of unidentified men tossed stones at the Captain Dony's  house at Ranchi. Some of them burnt Spin bowlers Aswan's car at Chennai.
The Indian government has provided Z level security to the homebound Cricketers.

Atithi Devo Bhava

The father - son duo stormed inside the Taj Mahal on a balmy Sunday. The little boy ran towards the central pool and his father chased him. 

'Stop,' the harried father screamed.
The boy paused and his eyes came across a placard - 'Atithi Devo Bhava'
He asked his father about it.

'Atithi Devo Bhava means that Guests are equivalent to God and we should treat them with the highest respect.' His father said to which the boy nodded his head in agreement. 

There was a loud babble of voices and a large mob surrounded a tall American citizen who was arguing with a taxi driver.
'Oh my God! Look at that   West Indian,' the Father said to his son.
'Where?' the son asked.

'Arey, see that Negro, blackie over there,' he pointed and said,'so tall no.'
The little boy looked straight into his eyes and recollected what his father said minutes ago.

Hypocrisy of Indians - April A to Z Theme Reveal 2017

Hypocrisy of Indians - April A to Z Theme Reveal 2017
Knock Knock! Anyone home? 

The Solitary Writer just woke up from a deep slumber last weekend and that too at a time when April A to Z is around the corner. So, in the year 2015, I festooned my blog with a different gamut of emotions ranging from Apology to Happiness and Jealousy to Dedication and much more. 


In the year 2016, I thought of playing with lives of two individuals and thus came the He and She who were so fond of each other that they used to fight over petty issues and patch up soon.  It was fun and I was worried because those were continuous posts that required the reader to traverse back to the A post to follow the continuum.

This year I am blank. For weeks, I was pondering over the theme for April A to Z. I was feeling weird several times. Because several times my innocent mind switched between different topics. But now I have made up my mind.  I am going to present the Hypocrisy of Indians this year. 
So yes, my theme is decided. It is the hypocrisy of Indians.
See you in April! Yes, it's just a week away and I hope I survive this year's challenge.

Till then, Auf Wiedersehen,
Das Ste
