The Academy-Award nominated animated short-film by Mark Osborne tells the story of a lonely inventor, whose colorless existence is brightened only by dreams of the carefree bliss of his youth.

By day, he is trapped in a dehumanizing job in a joyless world. But by night, he tinkers away on a visionary invention, desperate to translate his inspiration into something meaningful.

When his invention is complete, it will change the way people see the world. But he will find that success comes at a high price, as it changes himself, as well.

Questioning our National Anthem

This is one of the most interesting e-mails of the hundreds that are forwarded to me everyday......

'Jana Gana Mana' - Just a thought for the National Anthem! How well do you know about it?

I have always wondered who is the ' adhinayak' and 'bharat bhagya vidhata', whose praise we are singing.. I thought might be Motherland India ! Our current National Anthem 'Jana Gana Mana' is sung throughout the country.

Did you know the following about our national anthem, I didn't.

To begin with, India 's national anthem, Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka, was written by Rabindranath Tagore in honor of King George V and the Queen of England when they visited India in 1919. To honor their visit Pandit Motilal Nehru had the five stanzas included , which are in praise of the King and Queen.(And most of us think it is in the praise of our great motherland!!!)

In the original Bengali verses only those provinces that were under British rule, i.e. Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat ,Maratha etc. were mentioned. None of the princely states were recognized which are integral parts of India now Kashmir, Rajasthan, Andhra, Mysore or Kerala.

Neither the Indian Ocean nor the Arabian Sea was included, since they were directly under Portuguese rule at that time. The Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka implies that King George V is the lord of the masses and Bharata Bhagya Vidhata is 'the bestower of good fortune'.

Following is a translation of the five stanzas that glorify the King.

First stanza: (Indian) People wake up remembering your good name and ask for your blessings and they sing your glories. (Tava shubha name jaage; tava shubha aashish maage, gaaye tava jaya gaatha)

Second stanza: Around your throne people of all religions come and give their love and anxiously wait to hear your kind words.

Third stanza: Praise to the King for being the charioteer, for leading the ancient travelers beyond misery.

Fourth stanza: Drowned in the deep ignorance and suffering, poverty-stricken, unconscious country? Waiting for the wink of your eye and your mother's (the Queen's) true protection.

Fifth stanza: In your compassionate plans, the sleeping Bharat (India) will wake up. We bow down to your feet O' Queen, and glory to Rajeshwara (the King).

This whole poem does not indicate any love for the Motherland but depicts a bleak picture. When you sing Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka, whom are you glorifying? Certainly not the Motherland. Is it God? The poem does not indicate that. It is time now to understand the original purpose and the implication of this, rather than blindly sing as has been done the past fifty years.

Nehru chose the present national anthem as opposed to Vande Mataram because he thought that it would be easier for the band to play!!!
It was an absurd reason but Today for that matter bands have advanced and they can very well play any music. So they can as well play Vande Mataram, which is a far better composition in praise of our Dear Motherland India.

Wake up, it's high time! Shouldn't Vande Mataram be our National Anthem. Come Join together to put Vande Mataram as our National Anthem.

And it makes me wonder...

Wikipedia's translation of the anthem in english:

O! Dispenser of India's destiny, thou art the ruler of the minds of all people
Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat, the Maratha country,
in the Dravida country, Utkala and Bengal;
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,
it mingles in the rhapsodies of the pure waters of Yamuna and the Ganges.
They chant only thy name.
They seek only thy auspicious blessings.
They sing only the glory of thy victory.
The salvation of all people waits in thy hands,
O! Dispenser of India's destiny, thou art the ruler of the minds of all people
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee,
Victory, Victory, Victory, Victory to thee!.

Tagore is said to have written the poem in honour of God. In a letter to Pulin Behari Sen, Tagore himself wrote:

"A certain high official in His Majesty's service, who was also my friend, had requested that I write a song of felicitation towards the Emperor. The request simply amazed me. It caused a great stir in my heart. In response to that great mental turmoil, I pronounced the victory in Jana Gana Mana of that Bhagya Vidhata [ed. God of Destiny] of India who has from age after age held steadfast the reins of India's chariot through rise and fall, through the straight path and the curved. That Lord of Destiny, that Reader of the Collective Mind of India, that Perennial Guide, could never be George V, George VI, or any other George. Even my official friend understood this about the song. After all, even if his admiration for the crown was excessive, he was not lacking in simple common sense."

My existence.

Psychopathic nature is my existence.
Discussions, Conversations, are somethings I Despise.

I'm clearly Distressed, in the very depth of the word.
Admitted. Its wrong, wrong, wrong. Staring straight at me.
I'm a stranger to Light. Darkness, Oh Sweet.
Perhaps. Probably. Cause we take our eyes off the world, off the Road,
off the niche, that we wander.
Wandering, is Clean. And pitched.

Just the other day I met you. And I Hated it. Sorry.
I cling to not to get Sentimental.
To the unflinching truth which sways past you, and you Swish.

Lets all fall into the trap of Answering Back, of Revolution,
Of being No one, Of being the fire, the Activist, of being, You.

You in Black, Me in Red. Lets Commute.
Not you , you Ass...
I wont make you cry, Cause its not a part of the Plan.

But I wont Crumble when You Cry.
Neither Would I.

You guessed right: Schizophrenia.

Random Thoughts of a demented mind

A dilation in my eyes,
a flow of adrenaline in my nerves,
the brain refuses to stay low,
asks me why dont you trip more,
a gush of energy comes from within
"Die only after you've tried everything"
with all my senses lost
i only remember things that make me low
hell why should not I trip more and more and more!!!

iNoob but iOriginal

I want someone I can call my own
Share myself, on face or on phone
Can you please give me a fresh start
I wanna try and cure your wounded heart.

I made a mistake you see, without a reason that unfortunate time
You used to be a stranger once, I want you to be mine
You may think that all hope is now outta hand
That I am a Noob, I totally understand!

I realize I said things which are hard to forget, its true
I am SORRY, Please have a look at me, I am waiting for you!
