Another Dirty Pciture

Apologies, Apologies....I have written in my previous post that I wanted to write more frequently and I was unable to keep up my word. I have a reason but that will not suffice. I guess I have to take Big B as inspiration when it comes to being systematically regular. If you never came across his blog...heres the link to read his daily journal. If you are lucky enough he might reply to your comment as well. Have a look.

Smitha had become popular among all the movie (Indian) goers around the world only after the Dirty Picture than when she was actually acting in films. She was more a rage in south and the northern cinema hasn't known her even after her suicide. Credit goes to Ekta and Vidya for bringing her life to limelight. However her actual real life was far different from what was shown in the film. Smitha has been lesser known by this name. She was more famous for her raunchy screen tag 'Silk'. The dirty picture which was believed to be inspired from silk's reel and real life was only a part of the real picture.  Many do not know that the end of this sexy lady was also due to failed relationship but not just the screen failures. She was indeed in a success streak when she committed suicide. However, the real reasons will always be buried in these cases. It wouldn't be surprising to say that very few know that she was very benevolent and a secret philanthropist. The immense amounts that the producers poured for her raunchy moves on screen were diverted to orphanages that she supported with no publicity. I wish the Dirty Picture covered this part as well. Smitha aside, the same failed relationship and extreme stress was the case with Divya Bharathi, and there were rumours about a famous director who was believed to be behind her suicide case. Another failed relationship case.

Then comes the latest young lady Jiah, who committed suicide due to a failed relationship (as per the 6 page letter she wrote). While showbiz is not an easy industry to handle, the relationship maze is where most of the men/women fumble. Coping up with the break up seems like a cakewalk to many people in the showbiz as per the people who happily moved on and make new bfs/gfs within days of breakups. But there are also sensitive and possessive people who cannot take breakups and failures easily and move on, to such people, showbiz industry can be too cruel as the tabloids don't spare their stress. The stories and associated rumours can be more dangerous than the actual breakup. Even Jiah's death was attributed to her bumpy career in Bollywood before Pancholi's indirect involvement was revealed. This man who was behind her suicide was taken into custody and was even denied. While morally this act may seem right, there is another side of the story. The flip side can be exploited by every other girl or her parents who commits suicide in the name of failed relationship. If the letter is only clue which can imprison a guy, the so called weak minded or black minded girls might take this an advantage as well.

Poor Jiah who left her mortal coil would have undergone extreme stress as per the tearful letter she left to let the world know that her extremely turbulent relation was the major reason for committing suicide. However, it was all assumed that she was also weak to withstand the ups and downs of the career. The Dirty Picture shows an ambitious woman who aspired to ascend high levels in the film industry and who has been tempted to take routes that landed her in illicit relations and stressful life. But in Jiah's case she wasn't so craving for career in Bollywood nor she was crazy about her bumpy rides in Bollywood as per her letter. She was more worried and disturbed about her relation than anything in the world. This case clearly depicts that relations do play a big role in a human's life, just as a happy & cool relation can boost the spirits, a turbulent & infidel relation can completely destroy lives. Jiah's suicide is nothing but another side of Dirty Picture. Who knows if Smitha was also in a good relation, she would have not ended her life.

Its World Environmental Day - Theme of 2013 is Think-Eat-Save

This campaign about how to buy food responsibly, how not waste food, and how to recycle/compost your food waste to avoid the burden on solid waste management organisations.

1) Please do not buy food in excess. It is often observed that middle class and above buy food that is more than required and throw them without using as they get spoiled over a period of time.
2) Kids are to be taught not to waste food in their plate/lunch box. This is a very common habit among many kids who spill/waste/leave food which can grow into an irresponsible habit further.
3) Prepare your meal responsibly. Many a times, especially in our country food is prepared in excess, in case the maid doesn't turn up, all the excess ends in gutters.
4) Wedding meals are another part of huge tons of food waste that is generated everyday. The big fat Indian wedding waste can possibly feed some hundreds of hungry if managed responsibly. Read my musings here.
5) Food waste that is generated out of restaurants is no less to the above. The food that we order in excess is all thrown away in the gutters, instead get them packed and give it to hungry person by the road side.
6) Above all try to use a compost bin to decompose all the degradable kitchen waste.

This space beckons

Yessss....I feel like coming back to this space again and again...if you have noticed, I have been on a posting spree since last 2 weeks. If you wonder what is so special about this space??? me this is a soul space! Can there be any better reason than this?
I always think of being very regular, like doing an everyday post like my many other blogger friends. And then I get lazy sometimes or too busy at times :P
But these days, therez so much that I want to vent out, talk it out and rant about, ask me what....hmm random things, some soul spoken lines, and sometimes frustration grrrrrrr.
Anyways, I want to try to be very regular, at least do 5 posts a that too much?? I don't know at least until my inner self pacifies or gets tired, I may be doing so.
I was talking to a friend yesterday, and rarely I come across people who talk some thing above and beyond the generic stuff....and that's when my inner self starts rejoicing. We were talking about how to make it big in spite of all the odds around us. While that was just a discussion, the intentions behind were very very honest. Making it big doesn't necessarily be immense fame/name/status, it could also be something that can inspire at least a few others to be what they dream of to be in spite of the hardships that hurdle them.
I have been battling to do something that I always wanted to, but something else comes in my way....should I accept and move on or should I hang on with what I want to do is the biggest question that ponders in my mind always. The struggle that I go through with these thoughts inside is endless, until when...may be at least until I find a way to implement what I believed or I ignore everything and move on and survive. 
Only a few of you can strike a chord when I say, I hate to do something that I don't believe in, just for the sake of money, status or any other such reason....its like choking my neck with my own scarf. Rest might say accepting and moving on is nothing but survival of the fittest. Well, that is a personal choice.
All I wanna do is write more often, and I hope my readers would enjoy reading my write-ups.
