Any Anwers....

Headley and his stories are everywhere in the media. I have taken just one newspaper's coverage on the issue to see how much has been written. In spite of this, there is a disturbing silence from leaders of our country, supposedly "the Voice of Voiceless" ; Our Saviours!!

Headlines from The Times of India

10-09-2010: Headley had Lalbaugcha Raja on terror list
06-10-2010: Headley’s targets put on fresh alert
12-10-2010: Why didn’t US give us Headley’s name: India17-10-2010: Wife told FBI about Headley’s LeT links before 26/1121-10-2010: I filmed PM’s residence too, claims Headley
22-10-2010: Headley videotaped Barc colony for ISI
Deadly Mission
Headley gave the video to his ISI ‘handler’ in Pakistan, but not to LeT Initially, the Taj was the sole target.

They are the DESTROYERS of PEACE and HARMONY from our lives, from the life of COMMON MAN.
Why none of the political parties have come up with any comments or any actions against this Deadly affair? Why do we have to tolerate all this? Why do we have to depend on those politicians for justice?

None of your business...

Everybody is interested when a new employee joins an organisation. There will be lots of observation and later discussion on those observations (Believe me people have all the time in this world to discuss these things). There will also be questions pouring in…it will start with where have you been put up (the most decent one). But within a span of one week, they will dissect every bits and pieces of your life. From your family to your friends and boy friends…your history, your future, they need to know every thing. I often wonder why somebody needs to know another person’s life details. And knowing your relationship status is the most important thing. You all must have faced these questions I am sure. If they want you to connect with your fellow employees, the question will be about you love life. They want you to open up/ break the ice (as they call it) and the questions will be –

Colleague 1: Do you have a boy-friend?

No

Colleague 1-Oh I am sorry. But you must have had one?

(Why on earth are you sorry? No body has died! Why? Do I look like ‘need to have boy-friend’ kind?)Umm…Aaa…

Colleague 2- Ok do you have any close friend?

Ya I do. I have few close friends.

Colleague 1- Any best friend?

I do have best friend.

Colleague 1- Oh (smiles…On all the faces present!!) So Jane Tu Ja Jane Na!! Interesting. Where is he?

(None of your business) Haan!!!No he is in a relationship. We are just good friends. He is the same city.

Colleague 1-No No. I am telling you with all these years of experience, you both can’t be just friends (this is coming after 3 days of you joining the office)

Colleague 2- I am now marrying my best friend. I am telling you will too.

No. Why on earth will I? I am happy for you. Congrats but no. (Traumatized by the way conversation is going on)

Colleague 3- A guy’s best friend is always his girl friend. How come you are his best friend?

(Why don’t you go and ask him) Hmm…Umm…(thinking of ways to put an end to this torture)

Suddenly the most senior person interferes and enlightens us with her insight into the matter.

Senior Colleague- I think she is right. It is the best way in my opinion. She doesn’t want to be in a relationship and commitment and thus she has a best friend.

(Wow…what the hell does this mean?) Hmm… (trying her level best to control the irritation)

Some people seriously need to utilize their energy in some thing positive. Or else, they will use their experience and knowledge and God knows what all in deciding your present and future!! I think every office should have “mind your own business” session every month.
