Intolerance

Intolerance

The real face of hypocrites walking in the corridors of media, bollywood, literature, etc was revealed with Malda riots incident. There were scores of people who were blaming Modi Government of raising intolerance in the nation, and the incident which triggered the hoopla of intolerance was Dadri incident, All the so-called secularist were making headlines with “Intolerance” remarks, award wapsi, etc. But now after Malda incident everyone who were shouting with big pipes aren’t even visible and they avoid talking about it. Why such a hypocrisy? Are you afraid? Are you afraid of “M” might make your life difficult? Why only arrest Kamlesh Tiwari and let Azam Khan roam free? Or was the Malda incident created to disturb ongoing investigation against Drug Mafia, Currency Mafia, etc?

The Logic is simple, during Dadri incident you were brave to accuse a tolerant person about intolerance, but now with Malda incident you are afraid to accuse an intolerant person about intolerance.

 

 

Sukrupa – NGO for free education!

Basic necessity of 19th and 20th century were “Roti, Kapada aur Makaan” (Food, Cloth & House), but in 21st century we have to add Education to this list.

Education has empowered lots of people to rise up from difficult background and achieve success. In this era, many people talk about Right To Education, role of Government, Digital Learning, Girl child education, etc. But number of people working to quench the knowledge thirst of children, especially children from economically and socially backward is very very low.

We have an exception, Sukrupa a NGO based out of Bangalore, India; are working in the areas of Education and Socio-Economic Development. They are successfully running various programs like free schooling, women empowerment and youth training for past 13+ years.

Sukrupa’s Mission Statement

Sukrupa1

Story of Sukrupa:

The story of SUKRUPA starts with Suguna, in a small scale industrial neighborhood in Bangalore in 1971 when she invited neighborhood children into her home to teach them when their parents were working. First with eight kids, she taught all subjects as an after school program. By 1981, she was teaching 150 children, as they spilled out into the yard. Her daughter Krupa and son Sathya grew up in this environment, and they would teach students in the grade below them. Sathya went on to become a software professional, and Krupa became a successful entrepreneur. By 2001, her pursuits led her through India, Italy, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia, Srilanka, and Indonesia into the granite industry in the United States. This history combined a fundamental belief in the importance of education and a global perspective on the social problems of India.

Out of a passion to create opportunities for deprived children, Krupa ended her lucrative career in the United States after a four-week vacation to India during summer of 2002. She setup SUKRUPA and then in 2008, created the social enterprise SUKRUPA Creations, which trains and provides dignified employment to the children’s parents.

Lets spread it across, because this is Youth ki Awaaz!

Today its proved YU (are un)Fit, Amazon

Indian E-Commerce has seen tremendous growth in past 2 years, benefiting all the stakeholders, customers, industry, investors, etc. Off late the concept of flash sale has created such a frenzy that people are forced to buy a particular product, at particular time, from a particular e-commerce website.

Today, 29th July was one such day, today is the day when global e-commerce player Amazon proved, its unfit to handle huge demand from customers.

Sales of YuFit – an activity tracker; competitor to MiBand failed miserably due to technical glitches in Amazon’s website.

Technical problem or not, customer care wasn’t able to convey the message of duration of this outage, they were doling out common response across the platform:
” There is some technical issues as of now. Our technical team is working on it. And the sale has been extended till 4PM.
So i request you to try placing the order after 30 minutes.”

This is the reply from Amazon after 6:30, on my Facebook asking me to join the race again on 31st:

” Hey! We have an exclusive sale on July 31st, 2015 at 2 P.M. for the customers who were able to add the product to the cart but weren’t able to check out.

– Grace”

Thanks Grace and all customer care associates for putting up such clueless replies to queries from customers.

Amazon you really made my day, you wasted my 1 hour trying to buy a product from your website.

Dumbass owns a smartphone – Experience 1

Dumbass 1: Hello, Excuse me
I turn around to see Dumbass 1 driving a luxury car and flashing his brand new Apple iPhone 6 plus.
Me: Yes!
Dumbass 1: Can you direct me to xyz hotel.
Me: Oh, yes!(I hesitate a bit, I didn’t hear the word “Please” anywhere in his sentence)
Dumbass 1: how should I go (Still “Please” was missing, I was thinking to mock the hell out of this guy)
Me: Oh! you have got iPhone 6 Plus?
Dumbass 1: Yes, I bought it yesterday, it cost me a bomb.
Me: Amazing! What other features does it have? (now cost is also a feature, if its expensive its has niche features, if its low-cost it’s all basic features)
Dumbass 1: (Really excited, or thinking that he got a chance to boast about his knowledge of this amazing device) It has 6 inch display,4G, 8MP camera, 64GB Rom, GPS, bluetooth, NFC, blah…blah….. for few minutes.
Me: Wow! It has 4G! and it works amazing with abc network
Dumbass 1: Yes, I have even got 4G activated from abc network and it works like a breeze, when others struggle with download speed, this beauty does it in a flash.
Me: Hmm (looking quite impressed) so why can’t you use that brick to tell you directions?
Dumbass 1: what? brick? (with a surprised look)
Me: yeah! It’s a brick if you don’t know how to use it. It has GPS, 4G, etc.. but
Dumbass 1: but.. what?
Me: But, it’s not smartphones fault, it’s a great smart phone but its bought by a Dumbass!
Dumbass 1 is greatly humiliated by my words and people walking by and on the street side are laughing at his humiliation, I walk away with an evil smile.
