5 Minute Read (5mr): A Day is Nothing More Than a Day

I’ve started this new ‘thing’ called “5mr”. It gives you a inspirational or philosophical point of view. I found these text on the internet and i want you guys to read it too. I’ll try and post it every week, preferably every Sunday. Hope you guys like what you read and implement these things in your life too.

What makes a day good or bad? Do you let events outside of your control define these labels? Or are YOU in control of your happiness?

Time and time again, on Facebook, twitter, in conversations, there is always someone that is having a bad day. Is it you? Well, if you are having a bad day, why? You locked your keys in your car? Slipped on the ice? People treated you badly? Woke up late? Stubbed your toe? Cussed out by your boss? Got a speeding ticket? Just feel like shit? Whatever the reason, no matter how small or large, you must learn to take responsibility and realize that it is YOU that is deciding to label the day bad. Yes, many things can and will happen that are outside of your control. These may not align with your definition of a “good day”. There will be many events that occur that you oppose. This is normal, this is life. However, whether you know it or not, you are in complete control of how you respond to these situations.

Let’s say you lock your keys in your car when you’re already late for work. The event already happened, the keys are stuck and you’re late. Yes, this does suck. Yes, it is easy to be frustrated over this situation. There is nothing you can do to change the fact that you locked your keys in your car and you’re late. Time does not go backwards. Trying to fight something that can not be changed is simply insane. If this were to happen to you, would you get angry? Would you be frustrated? Would this be a start to a bad day? If so, consider this – How you feel, at any moment, is completely your responsibility. Frustration and anger are not caused from the event, they are caused from your reaction to the event.

“But things just keep going wrong today!” Then why make it worse by labeling the day as bad? A day is nothing more than a day. You have to eventually realize that the day or experience is only bad because you are deciding that it is bad. I find it interesting that when pointing this out to anyone who is having a “bad day” how often it is completely rejected. “It’s not my fault I’m angry!” Yes it is. “It’s not my fault I’m frustrated!” Yes it is. Denying this is completely irresponsible.

Note that you’re not taking responsibility for the event. It may not be your fault that so-and-so said such-and-such, or that someone stole your phone, but if you’re upset over the episode, it’s all on you. It’s completely insane and unconscious to claim that you can not change your reaction to a situation. Are you a mindless drone? Take some conscious action and stop acting helpless.

It may feel like it is beyond your control. It may be so ingrained in your mind that when x happens you need to react with y. Perhaps x = someone yelling at you and y = crying. The reaction could be unconscious, but you need to learn to shift this to your conscious mind. You don’t always have to follow x with y. You are a conscious self aware being after all, right?

I’m definitely not suggesting never feeling sad, upset, frustrated, or angry. I’m pretty sure I would sound crazy if that were the case. But the first step is to understand that you are reacting. Just become aware of it. Notice how it feels. The next time you feel your body switching into anger mode, shift into the present moment. Don’t just count to 10. Feel how you feel. Notice the reaction. Once the awareness of your reaction becomes more apparent, it’s then time to shift from reaction to response. Yes, you can consciously respond to any situation in any way you choose rather than unconsciously reacting. Flail your arms in the air right now. Who did that? You did. In the same way, you can choose to respond to anything however you wish.

Of course, physical pain is completely different. If someone punches you in the face it’s not your fault you feel pain. You’re hurt because of the fist, not because you’re choosing to be hurt. If you catch the flu and are puking your guts out, you can’t just choose to feel healthy. But even in a situation like this, you can choose to not whine, complain and act helpless. You can still be happy even when you don’t feel like it. There is still a response you can give to something like this.

Hoping for a good day tomorrow goes against all logic. Why hope for a good day? Why not just decide to have a good day? And why tomorrow, why not now? Tomorrow never even really exists, you never live in tomorrow, you always live in today, in the now. So, instead of wishing a good or bad day, from now on I’m just going to wish for a day. You either have a day or you don’t and I’d prefer to have one.

So, with that being said, I hope you all have a day today.

Long Live Revolution: The Story of Sardar Bhagat Singh (2)

Long Live Revolution

Long Live Revolution

It is not the purpose here to trace the history of the revolutionary movement in India. Up to 1914 there were scattered secret organizations, mostly in the province of Bengal, but some outside it also. On the outbreak of the World War, the various organizations saw an opportunity to raise the standard of rebellion throughout India. With this purpose, such eminent revolutionaries as Rash Bihari Bose, Jatin Mukherjee, Sachin Sanyal, V. G. Pingley, Sardar Kartar Singh, Thakur Prithwi Singh, Baba Sohan Singh and others joined together and made elaborate plans in conjunction with some Sikh and Rajput regiments to bring about an armed revolution in India.

But as destiny ordained it, the whole plan tailed through inner treachery, except a formidable rising at Singapore which was subdued by means of Japanese warships and Japanese mariners. As soon as the authorities got scent of the plan of the revolutionaries, the regiments suspected of complicity in the contemplated risings were disarmed and disbanded, and armed European pickets were posted around them. These soldiers were then sent over to the severest fighting zones in France. The Defense of India Act was at once proclaimed, and more than 7000 persons were arrested in the Punjab, U. P. and Bengal.

By 1916, the revolutionary organizations were scorched, though not actually killed. By this time another influence had appeared in the field of Indian politics in the person of M K Gandhi. His idealism and his sacrifice appealed greatly,to the minds of the youths, many of whom began to join in his non-cooperation movement. But the “Bardoli Retreat,” .as it was termed by the revolutionaries, and the subsequent set-back in the non-cooperation movement again gave impetus to the revolutionary movement. By 1924 we again see the springing up of secret revolutionary organizations. In Bengal, as usual, the old revolutionaries began to organize again, but a heavy blow was dealt to them by the Bengal Ordinance of 1925.  In U. P. and the Punjab, the different parties organized by Sachindra Nath Sanyal, Jogesh Chandra Chatterjee, Pandit Ram Prasad Bismil etc., combined and formed one party.

At a meeting at Allahabad, a constitution was adopted and the name of the party became “Hindusthan Republican Association.” It was this organization that Bhagat Singh joined when he shifted to Cawnpore. His party name then became “Balwant,” under which name he used to contribute articles occasionally to the magazines .Cawnpore was then the headquarters of Jogesh Chandra Chatterjee, or Mr. Roy as his party-name was, was the Chief Organizer of the party and it was under Jogesh Chatterjee that Bhagat Singh began to work.

In 1926 (August 1925 is the date)  occurred the well-known Kakori train dacoity, in which the members of the H. R. A. held up a running train at Kakori near Lucknow, and looted the government cash that was being carried in that train. Vigorous police investigations into this affair led to ramifications of a wide-spread revolutionary organization, and the subsequent Kakori Conspiracy Case revealed many of their secrets. It was at this time that Bhagat Singh went back to Lahore.

Politics Uncensored!

Sarcasm: Nobody does it better than me.

Note: this post is uncensored, if you are under 13 then please dont read it. its for your own good. Others take notes because Dr. Anmol Jani PHD. in Sarcanomics is here.

DEMOCRACY EXPLAINED

Discussing about politics makes me angry. after 2 hours of long politics talk with my so called “Want-to-make-a-change-in-the-world” friends (I’m talking about you BHAVIN) it actually makes my blood boils and makes my veins show from my hand and all the other parts. that means i am fucking angry. at that time i feel the need to attend anger management classes. But, i never thought i would write about politics on my blog, i thought if i wrote something about it, then maybe i would be arrested for kicking kapil sibal’s ass through my words. And that would bring some negativity on my blog and people will stop reading my blog. and trust me my blog is like, “So far, So good”. but, now “FUCK POLITICS”. and Fuck the people who play the dirty games of politics. after reading this post people will think, ” this is just another asshole who thinks that politics is bad and he is angry about it cause sometime in his life someone played a dirty political game on him and now he’s just oozing out his frustration and anger through his blog.” well, yes and no. SO, WHAT? every-fucking one does it every-fucking now and then.

But, the problem is i dont let the anger out. i just keep it with myself. all the guilt and anger and pain and frustration i just keep it with myself. i pamper it, i obsess it and i let  it grow like cactus growing in a garden of red roses. I let the anger and frustration give birth to anew sense of duty towards India. it’s that anger and disgust that makes me refuse to give/take bribery. it’s that pain and frustration that i dont take part in any kind of corruption and dirty politics game. i am from that category of people who just sit and watch. and, then sip some tea and go home and sleep happy.

That’s why i thought of seething all this things out. every negativity from myself. I’m not doing it as a favor to anyone or i just want to feel good and and empty all the negativity from my mind and soul. i am doing this because i am in the mood to OFFEND. I clearly dont give a fuck if they censor my blog or force me to delete this post. Somehow, someway i will fuck them out of this society through this post. I hope this post reaches to all the political personalities of India and i want them to feel guilty i want them to feel offended, oh so much fucking offended!

Dear Political Fucknuts of INDIA,

The only reason you’re in power and ruling the country/state/city/village is because the opposition dont even have the agenda of their own. it is so fucking clear as a crystal that the people who used to 26/11 attacks to circulate the anti-congress are not even worth my contempt. OH! you’re liking it aren’t you sibal? i want you to read it you dumb bitch. I hope i am not offending any religious/national/ridiculous/unreasonable sentiments now?  NO! i haven’t offended anyone yet because i didn’t use the name of a dumb and ugly bald son of a bitch named GANDHI, right? i will say this, you and the other dumb fucknuts in your team are actually dumb bitches because you’re all narrow-minded, ridiculous and downright idiotic. Do you, Soniaji’s puppets realize you’re good for fucking nothing?

A woman can’t get out of her house alone post 7PM in Delhi without pepper spray and the fear of getting raped; Cabinet reshuffles and interest rate hikes have become seasonal activities; Farmers’ suicides and unresolved crime scenes have become  the thing for non-fiction narratives; Eunuchs’ only sources of income remain prostitution and blackmailing and the lesser said about terrorism, the better. What the hell do you expect an average citizen to do? Hang your Soniaji’s picture in his living room and worship it? A few days after India has recorded a shameful GDP growth of 6.9%, what’s really being discussed is censoring social media! Oh sorry, not censorship just a ‘check on the content’. Check on the content, my ass. What we really need is bloody mental health check up because seriously, such volumes of bullshit cannot be produced without the presence some serious illness/ psychological disorder.

I’m quite a consumer of social media in my everday life and I haven’t seen so much ‘offensive’ content be churned out as has been done since you decided to ‘not to go the press about “checking content” so as to not hurt any sentiment’. As a matter of fact, I refrain from using abusive language on my blog, but you know when i really learnt how to abuse? It all started with me following the Indian Political Scenario. Infact I surprise myself every day when I read about your latest decision (or lack there of) and utter an abuse I did not even realize I knew of.

Oh but it’s pretty easy for you guys, isn’t it. Get one minister to take his shot at talking crap and then withdraw from the statement and don’t back it up as the govt/Congress. Manmohan Singh will hold a press conference where he will ‘condemn’ what happened or tell us that ‘the decision is on hold until the parliament reaches a consensus’. And then get (not so) blue-eyed Rahul Gandhi to go on tours across the country, joining his hands promising the people that he ‘will take the issue up’.

So, fuck you and fuck your bloody fucking politics game. i take it upon myself  to offend you.

Do something good for the country which raised you and the nation which fed you. can you stop thinking about yourself and your bank account and start thinking about the people of India.But you wouldn’t do that because you’re all too busy licking some Italian bitch’s ass. THIS JUST GOT BLOODY SERIOUS IN NO TIME.

THIS IS NOT ANNA HAZARE OR ARVIND KEJRIWAL OR CHETAN FUCKING BHAGAT TALKING. THIS IS ANMOL JANI TALKING, THIS IS INDIA TALKING.
